Found not guilty

A jury found Nathaniel Lamar Adderly, 37, an inmate at the state correctional facilty in Ryan Township, not guilty of assaulting three correctional officers following a trial held before Judge Cyrus Palmer Dolbin. Not guilty verdicts were returned on three counts each of aggravated assault and simple assault despite testimony of correctional officers. The inmate denied the assaults.

Zone hearing board

The Schuylkill County Zoning Hearing Board held hearings on two applications seeking variances to the county zoning ordinance to construct a home and a trailer.

Frederick W. and Deborah J. Richeter, owners of a 48 acres in Barry Township and a two story home at 648 Deep Creek Road, Barry Township, requested a variance to construct a one story residence on their tract with the existing residence in the future to be converted to an accessary building. They cited the American Disabillity Act which states accomdations shall be provided for disabled persons. Mrs. Richter had a knee replacement and now can't use the second story of her current residence and would live in the new home which will be a one story structure. The board granted the variance.

Jerry S. and Trcey Kreiser, of Lake Front Drive, Washington Township, seek a variance to construct a trailer on a lot they own in this area which does not meet the minimum lot size requirements of the zoning ordinance. They would lease it and claim they would limit not more than four people occupying the structure. The board reserved making a decision at a later date.
