Alex Comfort

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A. I am in 12th grade at Emmaus High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject would have to be history. I’m really interested in history for many reasons, but mainly because of what it reveals about people in general. History provides a record of both successes and failures for people to triumph and overcome. Without learning from history, people are doomed to repeat the failures of the past. So, all the lessons history provides truly makes it the most valuable, and my favorite subject.

Emmaus forms sense of community with painted rocks

Thursday, August 24, 2017 by BEVERLY SPRINGER in Local News

A movement has begun in Emmaus and it’s on the rocks.

As a community building and goodwill spreading activity, folks are painting small rocks and hiding them throughout the borough.

Any group or individual may participate, and the rules are few.

Find a rock, paint it and place the rock where someone else may discover it. Painters and finders are encouraged to post pictures of their rock creations or discoveries on the Emmaus Rocks Facebook page.
