Students learn the benefits of respect

Harry S Truman Elementary is taking charge to instill the value of respect within their students.

Nicole Hager, education coordinator with J.P. Mascaro & Sons, visited the school Sept. 6 with their respect program and challenged the students to take care of the earth in the sense they treat the world as their backyard.

Aretha Franklin's song "Respect" played the theme of the presentation.

Hager said respect is something that needs to be earned, and can be gained through caring, honesty, trust and sharing feelings.

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.
