Some popcorn-type snow showers have popped up between Reading and Philadelphia. This is no surprise and just as we warned could happen anytime the next few days. Most of the next few days will be dry and cold but any one of these little snow showers (think of them like a surprise August thunderstorm) could temporarily dust up the roads, so use caution. 




(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

Feb. 11, 1985:  Kutztown University begins a recycling program on campus.  Robert Moyle, director of facilities, reports that the university creates 675 tons of garbage a year, the bulk of which is paper.  The program is championed by Dawn Scheppach, a KU environmental science student.
