It's again the season to get your flu shot

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 by The Press in Social News

It's time for a flu shot.

You can get the flu vaccine from your doctor, and at public health facilities, senior centers, pharmacies and supermarkets. The vaccine can be administered anytime during flu season. Adults over 50 are prime candidates for the vaccine because the flu can be fatal for older people.

More than 200,000 flu victims are hospitalized annually in the United States; about 36,000 people die from it. As much as 20 percent of the U.S. population gets the flu each year. Flu season usually begins in October and can last through May.

Piano prodigy opens season with Allentown Symphony

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 by The Press in Focus

So many of us remember those days sitting at a piano, where our legs would swing freely in front of the bench because they were just too short to reach the floor.

Little, pudgy fingers would cautiously press on the piano keys, halting for seconds, and sometimes even minutes between chords. Looks of extreme concentration would adorn our faces as we struggled with figuring out the notes on the printed page of the music in front of us.

Girls soccer gets win

Thursday, September 20, 2012 by The Press in Sports

The Northampton girls soccer team picked up its first win of the season last week.

The girls blanked Dieruff 2-0 on Sept. 13.

NHS scored a goal in the first and second half to secure the win. Leandra Sterner scored in the first half off an assist from Krista Schroettner. In the second half, Sarah Fribanck found the back of the net on a pass from Lauren Sterner.

Northampton would fall to Bethlehem Catholic on Sept. 15, 5-1.

The girls held the Hawks to just one first half goal, but the floodgates opened in the second half and Becahi outscored NHS 4-1 that half.

Correction

Thursday, September 20, 2012 by The Press in Local News

In an article in last week's Press about Bath Borough's dumpster screen ordinance (Sept. 13, page 5), a quote was attributed to the wrong individual. It was Fiorella Reginelli-Mirabito who said, "Why are you wasting your time and my time?"

Although Councilwoman Carol Bear-Heckman agreed with Mirabito, the original statement was not hers.

The Press regrets the error.
