Everything You Need to Know About the Zika Virus

Everything You Need to Know About the Zika Virus

Ever since the first headline of a rapidly spreading virus hit news channels and Twitter feeds, all we’ve been worried about is Zika – especially with mosquito season right around the corner. We chatted with Dr. Jeffrey Jahre, Chief of Infectious Disease and the Senior Vice-President of Medical and Academic Affairs at St. Luke’s University Health Network, to learn the fact... »

Faces of the Southside

Faces of the South Side

“Move to the left, move to the left, move to the left,” someone says. She has one hand on her 35mm digital camera, which is also secured with a strap around her neck, while her other hand is in the air, wildly gesturing along with her commands. She sighs, exasperated. “Ugh, you moved too much.” She pauses as she contemplates how to salvage her vision and moves around the m... »

Every town seems to have a comic book store, and every citizen seems to have wondered, at one point or another, how it manages to stay in business, seemingly immune to economic hardship and digital migration. (Somewhat easily, as it turns out: comic book and graphic novel sales hit a staggering $935 million in 2014, a 20-year high for the industry.) Many years later, he wo... »

Justin Klement Enviousart

Justin Klement – Enviousart

“People thought I was crazy,” recalls Justin Klement, but the Whitehall-based artist has never let people’s opinions dictate his life. When some people picture a college football player, they might imagine a genetically gifted young man more concerned with practice and afterparties than going to class. When they imagine a college art major, they might imagine someone dress... »

Eating Your Way Through Coca-Cola Park

You have the day off from work, it’s warm outside, and your favorite minor league team – the IronPigs – are winning. In your left hand, a Mac & Cheese Parfait – layers of tender pulled pork and creamy macaroni and cheese – awaits.

Perhaps grass stains, a perpetual heap of dirty jerseys, and the overwhelming anxiety of literally becoming the “last picked for the team” are all rites of passage. Whether we were budding Beckhams, benchwarmers, or the one doing the laundry and cleaning up after muddy cleats, in some way or another, we’ve all been there, right? All of us, that is, except for those of us w... »

Cheryl Hochberg

“Making art is a career and a college major for people who can’t stand the thought of doing anything else,” Cheryl Hochberg. If anyone should know, it’s her. Hochberg is a painter, mixed-media artist, and the chair of the fine arts department at Kutztown University, a position she has held for the last nine years. She earned her BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadel... »

Beginning Over

Beginning Over

  Bruises a little too dark to be masked by concealer, threats of PFA filings, police visits commanded by concerned neighbors, and the occasional empowering Blockbuster movie or chart-topping pop single are what we picture when we hear the words “domestic violence.” What we do not picture is a woman surrendering the contents of her paycheck to her abuser every week, e... »

Marine Toys For Tots Foundation

Marine Toys For Tots Foundation

Few things are as sacred to some children as their holiday wish lists. Of course, there’s never a guarantee that their wishes will be granted, but as children set out a tray of milk and cookies before pretending to fall asleep for the evening, the overwhelming sense of hope hangs in the air that someone – Santa, mom, dad or grandpa – will deliver their dreams come morning.... »

Christmas in the Christmas City

Christmas in the Christmas City

There is perhaps no better place to enjoy the holidays than the Lehigh Valley’s own “Christmas City”. A simple stroll downtown reveals a winter wonderland of elegant Christmas displays and beautiful holiday decorations, while the rhythmic sound of horse-drawn carriages and the quaint sight of the Christmas City Village create an enchanting atmosphere. Crossing the bridge o... »
