In a heated moment at the last meeting, Hutchison tossed his nameplate on the table and said, "I resign as vice president." Hutchison withdrew his statement at the following meeting after asking council if they wanted him to remain.

In our meeting coverage of the East Penn School Board meeting in last week's issue of The Press, we mistakenly said one of the books in question was removed from a reading list at Eyer Middle School. In fact, according to Board President Charles Ballard, "there is not a general middle school reading list. There is a seventh and eighth grade honors reading list with some required books, but none of the titles being challenged were ever on that list. The challenge to 'Prep' in 2011 was for a book in the Eyer library.

Everyone loves a clown

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 by DANA GRUBB Special to The Press in Local News

Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey ambassadors, the clown couple of Dave and Cherie, recently paid a visit to the St. Luke's University Hospital Network Bethlehem Campus' pediatric floor spreading fun and laughter among staff and patients.

Popping in and out of about a half dozen patients' rooms, the bumbling Dave and innocent appearing Cherie juggled, performed card tricks and slight of hand routines, and all the while helped the youngsters forget they were recuperating in a hospital setting by making them smile and laugh.
