  • Old problems resurfacing at closed quarry

    FOX CHASE - Law enforcement officials regularly made calls to the old quarry that sat between the subdivisions of Ruhl Acres and Fox Chase.

    There were abandoned stolen vehicles, late-night parties and other improprieties.

    This was at a quarry which was off limits to the public.

    After a fire blanketed the area with smoke in the 1980s, things had been relatively quiet at the old quarry.

    Unfortunately, the past summer has brought some flashbacks for long-time residents of the area.

        But, journalists are resigned to the fact that under certain specific situations, elected officials have the right to discuss things as a group in private.
