Santee's up on the market for sale

Along with Bill's Lunch and the Wachovia building, the former Santee's auto repair shop is up for sale.

The attractive and clean repair shop at Second and Center streets will be missed by those who brought their vehicles there for maintenance and repairs. Buddy Santee was at the helm of the business for years. Before that, his dad, a longtime borough fire chief, ran the business.

The bank, which has been on the market for the last several years, now sports a "for rent" sign. Many are wondering why no new tenant is occupying the colonial style structure.

Joseph Bednar: home from the war, on the job

In this continuing series, I'm down in the hamlet of Darktown, Hokendauqua, Whitehall Township, visiting with Mr. and Mrs. Michael Bednar. Mike is a well known authority on Lehigh Valley Railroad history. We are following the saga of his father, Joseph, who served in the Navy Seabees during World War II.

After serving in the Pacific, facing the Japanese on the Island of Okinawa and welcoming the end of World War II, the young veteran would return to his home in Darktown. He boarded a train at Baltimore, switching to a Reading Co. train in Harrisburg.
