Downtown Harvest Festival
There was something for everyone at the Harvest Festival on Main Street Oct. 5. Children had their faces painted, adults could get a massage or throw an axe at a target 15 feet away, many visitors shopped for drinks, hand-crafted metal jewelry, framed paintings, and treats for their dogs.

Football-Freedom tops Emmaus
When a quarterback plays nearly flawless football, the chances of that team winning are exceedingly high. When your quarterback sets single game records, well, you know how this will end. Jared Jenkins put on a passing clinic in Freedom’s 63-28 mercy-rule win over Emmaus last week and it was a night to remember for the senior signal caller.
