    Pedestrians and motorists along Schuylkill Avenue in Tamaqua couldn’t miss this oversized reminder on Sunday, although it’s likely they already knew about the high temperatures, which soared to the upper 90s with high humidity. The sign was placed by resident Jim Rolland, who said he salvaged the tin and plastic advertising letters when a Redner’s Market in Shenandoah was remodeled. DONALD R.
