Trees may need good arborist and lawyer

Friday, November 23, 2012 by The Press in Social News

Poetry readers know there is nothing so lovely as a tree.

Unfortunately, poetry goes out the window and accusations can get pretty ugly when trees are involved in legal disputes, says a community forestry expert in The Pennsylvania State University's College of Agricultural Sciences.

"Most homeowners expect everyone to love their trees because they do," says Bill Elmendorf, urban and community forestry program coordinator and instructor in the School of Forest Resources.

COUGAR COMMENT Teachers attend conference

Monday, November 19, 2012 by Abby Parnell Special to The Press in Local News

Lehigh Valley Christian High School survived Hurricane Sandy relatively unscathed. Our building, on Howertown Road in Catasauqua, never lost electricity, heat or Internet service, nor was there any flooding. Some of the aluminum facing on the front top of the building got ripped off or bent back but that is the only damage we could find. We are very grateful.

As a result of Sandy, we had to make some calendar changes. The fall athletic awards night was rescheduled for Nov. 15.
