A great suggestion that will cause the wrath of rage to arise from the hospitals. They do not part easily with their money. A noble cause for our local colleges indeed. Get the money before the education bubble bursts. Financial Armageddon is about to descend upon this nation, the Lehigh Valley and the Once Great City now ruled over by Act 47 Ed.Blessings to you ED on this day of thanks.

I agree 100% with this women and with the mayor of Bethlehem. These institutions need to start writing substantial checks to bridge the gap in our budgets. They are profiting greatly from being here in the Lehigh Valley, more specifically Allentown. They can also pay for a good and fair percentage of our police and firefighters pensions'.

Local colleges - see all that money Muhlenberg spends on their fancy campus police vehicles. Yeas the ones you see at Wawa all the time. They have to round up all the campus drunks and druggies make sure they get to their therapy meetings.
