(This is the second and final part of this feature on Joe Young and his Youngiefest event.)

When Joe Young put together his first Youngiefest celebration, it was a gathering of his former students who had gone on to become successful businessmen.

“When I talked to these men and realized what they have accomplished, it keyed something in my mind,” Young said. “Some students in schools today are bored with traditional school classroom instruction, just like some of the people in my classes.”

Solicitor reminds supervisors not to discuss matter outside of meetings

At its meeting June 27, East Allen Township Board of Supervisors discussed pending legal action against the community by Rock-Lehigh Valley LLC.

The group is a subsidiary of Rockefeller Group.

The basis for the suit stems from the township’s decision to keep agricultural zoning in place for a land parcel owned by the airport on Willowbrook Road. Rockefeller wanted to see another warehouse on the property. The people of East Allen Township, through their elected representatives, decided to keep the existing zoning and not allow a warehouse on the property.
