Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by JIM MARSH Special to The Press in Local News

If there were any skeptics in the audience at a recent Emmaus Library lecture, they must have left wondering if they really heard what they had heard.

Albert Rauber, of Northampton, widely acclaimed paranormal studies investigator for the past 45 years, presented a lecture on the supposed haunting of the Lizzie Borden House, in Fall River, Mass., 120 years after Lizzie's father and stepmother were murdered in a gruesome manner in the home Aug. 4, 1892.

Operations committee hears improvement update

The Salisbury school board members heard an update from Director of Maintenance/Buildings and Grounds William Brackett on the Guaranteed Energy Savings Program at their meeting Aug. 8.

The concept of the Guaranteed Energy Savings Act is the cost savings from energy saved on an annual basis are enough to cover the costs incurred to install the energy savings equipment.

At the April 2 operations meeting, the school board members heard proposals from three Energy Services Companies who showed the district how they could save energy costs.

Celebrating the life of Michele Honochick

For Salisbury students and staff, the end of the 2011-2012 school year was especially difficult.

Students mourned the death of a former teacher from cancer, an elementary school teacher's daughter from cancer and the sudden death of the school superintendent who had bonded with many during his short time in the district.

Beginning the healing process, students said their goodbyes June 11 for summer jobs, camps, colleges and family vacations.

None expected to hear the news of the passing June 25 of Salisbury High School Librarian and Key Club Advisor Michele Honochick.
