Cancer Society promoting Santa Calls

Thursday, November 22, 2012 by The Press in Local News

Bring a smile to a face of a child, when they receive a call or letter from Santa Claus.

For a donation of $7 for a call; $6 for a letter; and $10 for a combination letter and call, brighten the life of a child, while supporting a great cause.

For more than 15 years the American Cancer Society has been hosting this event in the Lehigh Valley office.

Volunteers come to the office to place the calls and also prepare the letters for mailing.

County commissioners adopt Hansell's revised 2013 budget

Thursday, November 22, 2012 by DANIEL MINGUEZ Special to The Press in Local News

Lehigh County Commissioners let a budget amended by County Executive Bill Hansell stand at their Nov. 14 meeting.

The budget was returned to the commissioners by the executive who vetoed amendments to the budget that would have cut $5 million in spending and reduced real estate revenues by a little more than $5 million.

Instead, the budget was amended by Hansell to include a total of $3.5 million in spending cuts to specific line items and a reduction in real estate revenues by $3 million.
