A Patriotic March
God bless America!
She means so much to me
Glory laud and honor, and love for my country.
Our forefathers died for us,
so we could be free,
With their lives they paid the price, for our liberty!
Hail to our red, white and blue
Always hold them close to you.
Proudly fly our flag on high —
let it lead the way
As we proudly stand and say,
I LOVE THE USA!
Come, march along with me.
Come along and sing,
Let our flag forever wave and
LET OUR FREEDOM RING!!!

To The Editor:
The 2017 Kempton Fair — three days of viewing beautifully formed and cared-for livestock; graphic, horticultural, and culinary artistic expression; regionally famous musical talent; kids having non-computer-based fun with rides, games, and theater; fire-spewing truck and tractor power pulls and truck drag races; startlingly impressive fireworks; grown men trying to look like Willie Nelson; beautifully restored farm and garden implements; impressive new farming equipment; and, of course, amazing food to eat!

Last week, people took to social media about an incident in the Village of Hokendauqua, Whitehall Township.
A neighborhood block had been taped off by police, cruisers and other emergency vehicles lined the street, and word spread that the coroner had been called to the scene because two bodies were discovered there.
Some surmised online that it was an overdose. Some suspected a murder-suicide. The latter might have seemed a bit far-fetched had Whitehall not had such a tragedy the week before.
