Washing your car is important, but it's not always easy to know whether you should wash it yourself or bring it to a car wash.
To wash, or not to wash--that is the question. Well actually, I think the question should be: should I wash my car myself or should I pay someone else to do it for me? In order to answer that question, you need to ask yourself a couple of other questions first. Do you care about your car getting damaged? And do you care about the environment? Before we get to answering those questions, however, let’s first talk about why it’s important to wash your car. Washing your car is an important part of your vehicle's maintenance. You may only care that your car looks nice and shiny, but in actuality, washing is important for the overall health of your car as well. While washing your car won’t help it run any better, it will indirectly prolong the …

Lower Saucon Township police say they are seeking information about an act of criminal mischief on Roberts Avenue.
Red sauce, fish and white salad dressing... That combination of ingredients may sound delicious, but it's probably not appealing to the owner of a car that--according to Lower Saucon police--was surreptitiously covered in them. On the morning of July 30, police say they were dispatched to Roberts Avenue, where officers discovered that someone had made a mess of a vehicle using the foodstuffs. The incident occurred during the preceding overnight hours between 10pm and 7am, police said. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Lower Saucon Police Department at 610-317-6110.

They're like scenes from "Knight Rider," but with a Neanderthal at the wheel.
My husband, Matt, and I have been married 23 years now, and I can safely say that he's the most frugal (read: cheap) man on the planet. He's learned how to fix plumbing and electrical problems, just to avoid having to pay someone else to do it. For someone with absolutely no formal training in these trades, he does a good job for the most part. There was only one time when he hooked up the ice maker that overnight flooded the kitchen, sending waterfalls downstairs into the office, taking out a fairly new computer, fax machine and printer, then turning the office into a wading pool. But that was only once. Thank God we have a licensed electrician in the family in the form of Uncle Dave, and Michele's (my best friend and the Ethel to my Lucy…

Even if you drive a gas-guzzler, you still have some control over how often you fill up at the pump.
Hi, my name is Josh and I’m the new car guy here at Hellertown-Lower Saucon Patch. I will be contributing a weekly column that is dedicated to automotive related topics. I’ve been an automotive enthusiast since I was a kid, and was a mechanic for most of my adult life. The price of a gallon of gas is down from recent highs. However, in my opinion it’s still too high. While I can’t control the price of gas, I can control how often I stop to fill up. I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee that, as of this writing is seven years old. I have been known to get between 24 and 26 miles per gallon (mpg) using several methods to save on gas. Here are four basic tips to help you control how often you visit the pump. There are many more methods that I use …

Lower Milford resident Joy Smith will be cited for disorderly conduct as a result of the alleged incident, according to Lower Saucon Township police.
Pouring water can sometimes land you in hot water. According to Lower Saucon Township police, the latter could be the end result for Joy Smith, 36, of the 1500 block of Gable Drive, Lower Milford Township. Police say that on June 22 Smith "poured water all over her boyfriend's soon-to-be-ex-wife's car and might have caused dents (to it)." Smith's actions "served not legitimate purpose and she will be mailed a citation for disorderly conduct," police said. According to police the alleged incident happened at approximately 8:25pm at 3233 Apples Church Road, which is the address of New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Driving a vintage car is an adventure, in more ways than one.
It may be one of the last bastions of socially acceptable prejudice--the kind of car one drives. That's the funny thing about owning an older vehicle. No one has qualms about insinuating you might be a bit slow for not leaping at the first opportunity to dive deeply into debt to acquire some fiberglass, house-sized, gas-guzzling monstrosity with an engineered lifespan of five to seven years (long enough, if you're lucky, for it to last just as long as the payments). What is now nearly a century of advertising linking one's mode of transportation to one's happiness, personality, reputation and ultimate success in life has become ingrained for the vast majority of the driving public. You are what you drive. And if you don't drive something …
