  • Whitehall appointment is one for the history books

     Whitehall appointment is one for the history books
    In at least one respect, Phil Armstrong is exactly what Whitehall Township needs. That is to say, he is not much of a politician. For a township board of commissioners sometimes contaminated by political scheming, posturing and cronyism, that's just...

  • Like it or not, Pen Argyl's Schankel deserves credit for turning Green Knights into an elite softball program

    Bill Schankel would rather dish out credit than receive it. Ask him about his Pen Argyl softball program and he'll credit the assistant coaches, the players, the administration, even opposing coaches such as Southern Lehigh's Brian Neefe. "Because...
