Thank You!

The last day of 2011 and my 3,249th and final post on NOC (as first announced at Thanksgiving). Since the first post tracked by Google Analytics there have been 460,000 visits by nearly 98,000 unique visitors and 725,000 pageviews. Wow, and these numbers are less than actual readership since I fragmented traffic in 2010 by posting to Twitter, Facebook, and Posterous.  Regardless, I'm so pleased



Most Comments on NOC

2011-12-28T15:58:24.831-05:00

Through the years a lot of readers have posted comments to NOC. There are currently over 5000 for the the 3,247 posts made to date.None in my recollection topped the post about the NASD to consider taking the Calandra's Land which had 111 comments. Planning a new building was contentious enough, stating eminent domain would be considered against the Calandra family was too much for many area

CNN Blogger Slams Nazareth's History

2011-12-26T08:26:05.861-05:00

CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian opted to use the religious heritage of Nazareth, PA to speak to intolerance in a pre-holiday post (read it here).Nazareth, PA was founded by German immigrants in 1740. They were Protestants who had “no room in the Inn” for outside faiths. Non-protestants were not allowed to purchase property in that community, according to accounts of the towns history.(

Check out this website I found at lehighvalleylive.com The Express-Times also had a piece on former Blue Eagle Brad Silimperi. A long-time teammate and friend, it has been great to see what Brad has accomplished as a coach, and his impact on the Nazareth wrestling program can't be under-estimated. Brad's state title was a watershed event that opened the flood gates for many others.

For the first time since NOC re-launched (3/28/06), I went over 20 comments when I posted a letter from the Nazareth Area Education Association, regarding the contract negotiations that led to a strike (read the post here) In light of the strike controversy,  I had more than a few posts hit 20 comments shortly thereafter, and one that drove it to heights unseen then or since, which I'll post



Consideration for Others

Yesterday I was driving home after work and travelling on Main Street, north bound. In my lane, adjacent to GoodFellas and the Chinese Restaurant sat a Toyota Solara with its flashers on, double-parked. One car was able to get around, but the light changed and with oncoming traffic no one else was able to do so and we sat. A minute or so later, a man appeared between two parked cars carrying a

Early NOC Reflection

2011-12-11T18:50:40.967-05:00

As noted, at the end of this month I'm going to be closing down NewsOverCoffee. While I continue to post on what is happening, I also wanted to take a look back.When I relaunched the site in 2006, I focused on Borough Council and then NASD. I wanted to start at the geographical heart and work outward to expand. My first regular posts came end of March and by April and May a couple people found

One of the great things about living in Nazareth is how we embrace the holiday season. Candlelight walking tours, nativity scenes, lights, concerts, house tours, luminaries, and many keep candles in their windows year round to celebrate. I came across an invite on Facebook about a group of residents who are going caroling on December 16 from 6:30 until 10:00 pm. They are meeting at Copiers Inc



Patch Birthday

2011-12-02T14:53:43.711-05:00

Nazareth's Patch turned one yesterday, happy birthday. I know some readers who have used the site because I see their name there;-) but I'm sure others have little to no idea what Patch is. So I'll tell you a bit about it, give some opinion, and share a post from NOC's day 1 back in 2006. Well, Patch is like NOC. Actually, it is kind of exactly like what I thought could be accomplished when I
