Paddle the Poconos with Whitewater Moonlight Rafting Accompanied by a professional river guide, travel down ei... »

Juvenile Diabetes Feature

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

What’s the first thing your 10-year-old does when she wakes up? Sleepily reach for her phone—already over her data usage a week into the month—and scan through her notifications? Put on her Beats® and binge watch her latest Netflix® obsession? Announce how bored she is, an affliction that mysteriously vanishes at the mention of chores? Ever since Lily Scott was 10, the fir... »

American Fence and Flag

American Fence & Flag

If not for a man named Walt Disney, there may never have been a Mickey Mouse or Daffy Duck – or an American Fence & Flag, the fencing company co-owned by husband and wife Hal and Joyce Mante in Whitehall. After high school, Hal headed for Walt Disney World in 1973 hoping to start his career. When he arrived, however, he was told that there were no longer any opportunit... »

Who He Runs 4

Who He Runs 4

It’s too hot. It’s too cold. Well, I ate too much. I haven’t eaten enough; I won’t have the energy. I’m not a morning person. Night? It’s just too dangerous to go at night. I’m sick. I have to do laundry and I’m also in the middle of a very committed six-hour “Game of Thrones” binge. I’ll just go tomorrow. Or maybe on Monday. Yes, I will – it’s my New Year’s resolution. I’... »

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.

Lehigh Valley TOPSoccer

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... »
