Rescue Mission

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by The Press in News Briefs

Dinner to be served Oct. 12

WAEB 790 radio personality Bobby Gunther Walsh will again be dishing up his famous homemade meatballs to raise money for the Allentown Rescue Mission 4-7:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at Asbury United Methodist Church, 1533 Springhouse Road, South Whitehall.

There is no fee for the dinner but a free-will offering is requested.

To place a pledge offering, call 610-841-4999.

For more than 100 years, the mission has been a place where men have begun to experience restoration with God, their families and their communities.

The goal for each man is self-sufficiency.

Your community, your newspaper, your life

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

As newspaper executives struggle over whether the news should be digital first, tablet first, SMS first or print first, readers know exactly what they want their local newspaper to be – community first.

Reading a newspaper is not like reading a novel, a magazine, a history book, poetry, prose or any other type of literature.

Newspapers are not about what has happened in the past, what is happening someplace else or what happens in an author's imagination.

Newspapers are about us.
