Support needed to maintain home

The Knauss Homestead is asking the community for support both financially and with membership.

The cost of maintaining this historic house requires at least 200 annual paying members to sustain the costs associated with heat, security, electricity and telephone.

The security system which provides basic protection from break in or fire alert requires a land line phone which is a monthly expense, as well as the monthly service charge paid to the security company.

Does anybody need a potty pass?

To the Editor:

At Emmaus High School, we hear these words on a daily basis.

Everybody in the community wishes to put the notorious bomb threats behind them, but the students at EHS are reminded everyday of these threats.

How? Bathrooms.

Since the last bomb threat, EHS has instituted a strict bathroom policy. These bathroom restrictions are interfering with students' education.

To the Editor:

As you may have heard, we prevailed in our re-election effort in the Lower Macungie Township Commissioner race.

I am thrilled and humbled to have earned the continued trust and support of our residents. I worked extremely hard throughout the campaign having spent countless hours speaking with thousands of residents at their homes. But I could not have earned the victory without the strong support of friends and family, many of whom went above and beyond on my behalf.
