Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you have a romantic story to share about how you or your spouse proposed, we would love to hear about it.

Send us your special story and we will pick what we believe to be the most romantic. That couple will receive a $50 gift card for dinner at Roadie’s Restaurant at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe.

We will announce the winner and publish as many stories as we can in our Friday, Feb. 14 edition.

Stories should be 400 words or less and please remember, we reserve the right to edit any submissions. Deadline is noon Monday, Feb. 10.

Please include both names and the town you live in, as well as your telephone number and a photo from when you got engaged or a photo of the two of you now to be published with your story.

Send submissions to or mail them to Karen Cimms, TIMES NEWS, P.O. Box 239, Lehighton, PA 18235. You may also drop them off at our satellite offices in Tamaqua, Lansford or Palmerton.
