A Kresgeville man has been charged in a burglary at Dollar Tree in June.

On June 27, police investigated an overnight burglary at the Dollar Tree in the Carbon Plaza Mall. The store safe was broken into with a grinder, and pry tools. During forensic processing police seized an ATM receipt, a seat cover with a footprint, and an earplug.
On Friday police obtained an arrest warrant for Walter Francis Trainor, 53, of Kresgeville.

Trainor was taken into custody at his residence with the assistance of Lehighton State Police.

Mornings in our house are currently looking like this: roll out of bed, grab some breakfast, brush our teeth, and head out the door.

On our way out, I yell out a bunch of activities, like clothes bag, reading bag, baseball bag, swim bag, piano bag, or whatever the day’s adventures may be or might possibly be.

It’s the kids’ job to pack up these bags the night before with everything they might need for the day, and they resemble small pack mules as they head out to the car. Summer turns us into bag people.


I read with great interest Mr. Frassinelli’s Times News July 13 editorial “Tradition vs. Reality.” Although Mr. Frassinelli made some valid points, I feel it is necessary to shed some light on the real reasons and effects upon the Panther Valley communities of the 2016 merger.

The appeal group is more concerned about the spiritual health of the Catholic faithful rather than the upholding of ethnic traditions as Mr. Frassinelli believes.

Sightseers recently got a rare opportunity to explore the dam tower at Beltzville Lake, and see how the structure plays an integral role in the local watershed.

Organized by Cynthia Kurket, environmental education specialist at Beltzville State Park, and led by Pat Cannon, dam operator with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District, the tour allowed participants to explore the normally closed-off structure at the southwest end of the lake.
