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.

Sunny day sale

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

The corner of Fifth and Chestnut streets, Coplay, was busy Sunday with a brisk sunflower and bake sale. The fundraiser was a benefit held by 4-year-old Ella Grace Luchansky, Coplay, seated on the table, who was diagnosed in March 2011 with stage 4 cancer. Just one day after a release from her latest hospital stay, Ella was at the outdoor stand with her mother, Jen Kresge, right, and family friend Amie Marks. Proceeds from the sunflowers went to Angel 34 from Aubrey's Rays of Hope. Bake sale income will go to cancer research.
