Is Parking Behavior Out of Line at Hellertown Post Office?

A May 2 Facebook post about people who illegally park next to a fire hydrant while visiting the Hellertown post office on Delaware Avenue has gotten a lot of feedback. The original post by Liz Thompson was written on the Hellertown, Pennsylvania Facebook page, which has about 1,000 members. “You know you’re in Hellertown when it is completely acceptable to park in front of a fire hydrant because you’re ‘just running into the post office,'” Thompson wrote. “A fire can spread quicker than you may think. Have a little respect for the law and the men and women who will gladly put a fire hose through your car, to get to the hydrant you are blocking, to put out a fire. You having to walk more than five feet likely won’t kill you, while a fire most certainly could.”

Truck Window Smashed, iPod Stolen, Borough Resident Says

A resident of Delaware Avenue in Hellertown said the driver’s side window of her husband’s pickup truck was smashed and items stolen during a vehicle break-in Sunday night. The inside of the truck was “ransacked” and an iPod and GPS unit were stolen, she said in an email to Saucon Source Monday morning. The truck was parked along Tobias Alley–behind the home–when it was broken into. Another family car that was parked in front of the home was not disturbed, the woman said. The incident was later reported to Hellertown police, and anyone with information about it should contact the department at 610-838-7040.
