Why Are Schools Staying Mum About Student Absences?

For those who are lucky enough to have them, or to have vacation days - not everyone does. I am lucky to have an employer who understands that my first priority has to be seeing that my child is cared for - that's also a big part of my incentive to stay there. She is old enough now to stay home alone - we have good neighbors and I work close by - with normal illnesses, but if she needs me I am with her. Not everyone is so fortunate.  (Oct 26, 2009 | post #49)

Why Are Schools Staying Mum About Student Absences?

My Liberty High School, Bethlehem student had a 102 temperature. She had a doctor appointment that day anyway, unrelated issue, but they did the nose swab test while she was there. About 10 min. later the results: not flu. And oodles of her classmates were out about the same time with very similar symptoms. Absenteeism was really high, really early in "the season", but it isn't neccessarily the flu!  (Oct 26, 2009 | post #46)

Local College Readies New Suite-Style Dorm For Students

Yes, behind Main Hall, etc, in the area where the bandshell used to be - where the "headliner " concerts of Musikfest used to be back when there was no admission charge. In the area that was underwater during Hurricane Diane in 1955.  (Sep 11, 2009 | post #5)

Local College Readies New Suite-Style Dorm For Students

"One thing to consider is that there are only 71 parking spaces for 231 students. But Moravian says freshmen can't have a car on campus and they're not worried about people finding a space. " Why should they worry? They're not living there!  (Aug 31, 2009 | post #3)

Restaurant, Apartments Gutted in Bethlehem Fire

Those are some serious charges you're making, not that they do not seem accurate. Haven't heard anyone denying that you can get away with anything - well, MAYBE not murder - if you know the right people in Bethlehem for a long time.  (Aug 31, 2009 | post #4)

Saucon Valley School District Meets Over Uncertain Start ...

Pennsylvania is an "at will" employment state (commonwealth?), meaning that either the employee or the employer can terminate employment at any time for any or no reason whatsoever, as I understand it. Somehow it is different when dealing through unions, but I never belonged to one and don't quite understand the difference. I gather JAG was referring to the teachers' union as the Gestapo, forcing their position on employers (us), as I'm sure you understand.  (Aug 28, 2009 | post #38)

Emmaus Celebrating 250th Anniversary

My sympathies to the neighborhood. Ours just went through 10 days of Musikfest, so I think I know what you mean!  (Aug 15, 2009 | post #5)

The Morning Call

Paul Carpenter - Clarify the assisted suicide debate

Paul said, "From the moment a patient expresses a wish to get help to end it all, the medical establishment will adhere to firm rules that say no medico can profit from palliative or any other medical care designed to thwart that wish. No more $400 a day per patient, no more any money at all. Zip..." I didn't think he meant that palliative (or any other medical) care should stop, only the profit from it, since the commitment of the doctors' would certainly require them to provide the care. Most certainly. Since profit is not the motive, of course.  (Aug 9, 2009 | post #25)

Bangor proposes banning exotic animals and limiting house...

You are thinking of two-legged animals, aren't you? They are not being restricted, although that might have a greater affect on the community's quality of life....  (Aug 9, 2009 | post #71)

Police use stun gun on man in Musikfest altercation

Seemed to me that the most visible police presence was provided by the mounted officers. The cruiser & motorcycle we watched headed from Conestoga St. to the incident struggled to get through the crowd without running into anyone. An officer on a bicycle would have been invisible. I was really happy to see the mounted officers present. They not only can be seen, they can actually see into the crowd - I think they are wonderful. I also cringe thinking of the lack of social & mental development that would cause people to be so amused by things that more appropriately amuse toddlers, whom we count on growing out of that stage.  (Aug 4, 2009 | post #49)

The Morning Call

Police use stun gun on man in Musikfest altercation

I also am extremely grateful for the excellent handling by the police. My daughter & I happened to be walking from the "eastern end" of the West Side to visit family living on Church St. as this incident was happening. We live closer than we could find parking, so we avoid moving the car more than necessary during the "Fest". The most direct route is through this section of Main St. There could easily has been gunfire because of these jerks, but the police were calm & cool and handled things in the safest manner possible. My parent on Church St cannot go anywhere alone during the "Fest" because of the rough jostling of the crowds. It has gotten much rougher than it was in the first many years, and has lost its appeal for me.  (Aug 4, 2009 | post #47)
