The red fox and the gray fox are both commonly found within the readership area of the eight Lehigh Valley Press weekly newspapers.
Breeding begins in late January and continues into February. Foxes, although widespread are nocturnal, which allow them to live out their lives hidden from view. People are not generally out and about when the foxes are most active, so observation is usually limited to a chance sighting.
Foxes have been used in folklore throughout the ages. The fox...

Q. What exactly is a "floater" that you see in your eye?
Floaters create images in your eye that look like specks, filaments, rings, dots, cobwebs or other shapes. Floaters are the most vivid when you are looking at the sky or a white surface such as a ceiling. They move as your eyes move and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly.
Here's some biology first.
The lens in the front of your eye focuses light on the retina in the back of your eye. The lens...
Macungie Mayor Rick Hoffman obtained approval Monday night Jan. 7 to purchase GPS units for the borough's three police department vehicles. This is after losing borough council's vote the first time he requested GPS units because there was not enough money.
