High Honor Roll
Luke Jaindl of Orefield has been named The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s National Man of the Year Runner-Up.

Raising funds for LLS blood cancer research, the candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors.
I have a little kitty; she’s brown and tan and white.
She lays around and sleeps all day, then runs and plays at night.
She won’t sit on your lap, no way, an independent miss,
but, if she wants to get some treats, she WILL give you a kiss.
Her eyes are always pleading, her purring loud and clear.
Wherever you are going, she always follows near.
She sits around for hours; she’ll NEVER chase a mouse.
It’s much more fun to sit and watch it run around the house.
I spoil her real good, I know, but she is so darn cute.
The following students were named to the dean’s list for the 2016 fall semester at Kutztown University.
Donald Carl Nelson, 95, died peacefully on July 28, 2017.
He was one of the kindest souls one would have had the privilege to meet.
Mechanically inclined, he served in the Army Air Corps earning the rank of corporal as an aerial engineer assisting in delivering new planes to both fronts during World War II.
Born in Detroit Mich., and raised by his mother during the Depression, he was a hard worker who both owned a business earlier in life, and worked for various companies throughout his career, ending as a sales manager for Swift Microscopes.

Political rhetoric matters! Political narratives matters! Both create limits on what can be done when focus shifts from rhetoric and narratives to policymaking.
After months of wrangling the Republicans failed to deliver on a foundational political rhetorical promise — repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. After the House barely passed a bill, the Senate Republicans failed to pass a watered-down version of a bill to repeal the ACA.
James R. McGonigle, 82, died peacefully on Aug. 3, 2017.
The husband of Joan M. (Klein) McGonigle who died in 2016, he proudly served his country in the Army, and worked for Pillsbury as a mixer more than 30 years.
An avid bowler, he rolled a 300 game earlier in life, played baseball for the Allentown Patriots, and enjoyed golf.
The first-place winner of Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21’s third annual Math 24 Challenge for fourth and fifth graders was Thomas Gilchrist, of Kernsville Elementary School.
The students competed with school districts in Lehigh and Carbon counties in a game called 24, based on mental math and speed.
The goal was to get a solution of 24 from a card that gives four numbers.
Difficulty increased round by round, as more number wheels were incorporated, and eventually, a variable number spot.
