Middletown could top $3,000 in River Rescue donations

counter1 7 15WEBPress and Journal Photo by Jim Lewis - Kuppy’s Diner in Middletown began collecting money for River Rescue of New Cumberland, which is leading the search for missing teenager Medard Kowalski, on Dec. 27. A donation container sits on the counter at Kuppy’s Diner.


About $3,000 has been raised for River Rescue of New Cumberland in a Middletown restaurant’s drive to collect donations to help pay for the search of a missing teenager along the Susquehanna River.

Kuppy’s Diner will collect donations for one more day – 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 7 – before turning over the money to River Rescue.

River Rescue has searched the Susquehanna for 17-year-old Medard Kowalski, who went missing while canoeing on the river on Dec. 1. His father is a 1983 graduate of Middletown Area High School.

Despite post-Christmas bills, “people were still very giving and still very touched by the whole situation,’’ said Carol Kupp, one of the diner’s owners.

Supervisors reject plea for noise ordinance


Harvey Tennis wanted some help from the Londonderry Twp. supervisors. After his neighbors welcomed boarders and their dog, the late-night barking began, waking him up at 2 a.m. or 4 a.m., he said.

The noise is the last thing Tennis wants for his wife. She’s had a cancer scare, and she’s been going through chemotherapy. What she needs most is rest, and she can’t get it with the noisy dog at the neighbor’s house, he said.
