Two of the most crash-prone highways in the Carbon-Schuylkill area continue to be a concern.

Route 903 between Jim Thorpe and Blakeslee is fairly straight and heavily traveled.

According to state police at Fern Ridge, 45 crashes on Route 903 were investigated already this year.

One of those took the lives of two teens heading home from cheerleading practice.

Many say speeding and tailgating are the most common cause of crashes on the roadway, largely straight and fairly level, but heavily traveled.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

While I usually try to avoid reading Ann Coulter's column, the headline "A Culture of Child Rape" caught my eye.

Coulter asserts "There's a cultural acceptance of child rape in Latino culture that doesn't exist in even the most dysfunctional American ghettos."

I find this statement to be racist and misinformed.
