To The Editor:
I am writing regarding Debbie Galbraith's article [Editor's View page A10 Parkland, Northwestern Press] on the ASPCA commercials published Jan. 17 2013.
I liked what you reported about the ASPCA, but I am somewhat dissappointed you did not mention Forgotten Felines and Fidos shelter in your list of local animal organizations.
They have resided in Germansville, Heidelberg Township since 2000 and have a lot of cats for adoption, provide low-cost spay/neuter and desperately need volunteers.
To the Editor:
Some people who were shown the new Laury's Station Fire Company uniform shoulder patch asked why a steam locomotive was displayed in the middle.
Well, it's quite obvious to an 83-year-old, old-timer like me.
That steam engine harks back to the rich Lehigh Valley Railroad history that gave the village its name.
The little brick station was busy ushering people onto the local trains to go to work or welcoming guests to the large hotel next door for a good meal and a few drinks or maybe a day or two of rest.
