Lisa Fiore is asking everyone she knows to create artwork for the children and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School as a way to let them know people are thinking about them.
An Emmaus mom is urging her family and friends to grab their crayons and some construction paper and show their support for the Connecticut elementary school where last week a lone gunman went on a shooting rampage, killing 20 children and six adults.

I was reminded of this last week at a meeting in which people complained that the obesity …

Name: Joanne Henshaw Where do you live? Boyertown Event: Emmaus Historical Society Antique Appraisal What did you bring for appraisal? “I brought what I believe is an original Barbie doll from the 1950s.” Tell me about this item and why it is special to you: “I received the doll as a child. I didn’t play with it very much and still have all the dresses and hats for it. I’m anxious to see what it’s worth. When I got her out of storage, she had a dress on and I decided to put the swimsuit on her that she came with. I actually sat and played with her for awhile like when I was little!” What were the auctioneer’s comments? “This is an exceptional piece. It’s in the original box from 1959, which is in excellent shape. All the pieces appear…
