Koerner booth

Brenda Koerner shows a shirt to Kathy Serfass of Palmerton, Pa., while Peter Koerner looks on at the couple's booth at a fair in Harford, Pa. The Koerners spend part of their time on the road each year working fairs. When Peter severed his left thumb two years ago, he had no health insurance... Douglas Kilpatrick / Special to The Times
