At Coplay’s workshop session Oct. 3, borough resident Rick White approached council to complain about a citation he received with 19 separate violations.
After giving a history of the property and the state of the buildings, White denied most of the violations. Specifically, he cited problems with a violation of animals on the property — he said he has no animals — and one violation of a tree growing out of a barn, which he said was not true.
As a free service to the community, state Rep. Zach Mako, R-183rd, will co-host a shredding event to give residents of the 183rd Legislative District a chance to safeguard themselves against identity theft by having their personal documents securely destroyed.

Every October, the Whitehall Fire Department transforms the township Parkway into a frightful Halloween nightmare of sorts — a Haunted Hayride held Friday and Saturday nights.
“We work up different scenes every year,” said Matt Matika, a volunteer firefighter with the Hokendauqua station. “I ask members of the fire department to volunteer as scene leaders. They take it from there, adding in their own ideas.”
Matika acts as coordinator of the annual event.
