A young woman was injured Monday afternoon when involved in a single vehicle crash along Route 248. The crash occurred at 5 p.m. as she was traveling west just before the Bowmanstown exit. For some unknown reason she lost control striking the center Jersey barrier then crossed back across the roadway leaving the right berm impacting with the guardrail. The west bound lanes were reduced to one lane by fire police. State police at Lehighton are investigating the incident.

NEW YORK – Soon after Colorado legalized recreational cannabis, Todd Mitchem's son proposed using the plant for a horticulture project at his Montessori school in Denver. School officials said no way, despite support from dad, a regular weed user and chief executive of a dating app and social network for fellow enthusiasts. "They didn't want to touch it. They weren't ready to touch it," said Mitchem, who is divorced and shares custody of his kids, ages 11, 9 and 7.
"Minions" is one of the worst animated feature films I've seen in recent memory. This shouldn't be surprising since "Minions" is the spawn of "Despicable Me" (2010) and "Despicable Me 2" (2013). The goal of the Minions, after all, is "to serve the most despicable master they can find." Now isn't that a nice anti-social lesson to give the young 'uns?
