COVER STORY
Relationships, teamwork and community leadership

Fourteen elementary school children from Fountain Hill were special guests of the historic Hotel Bethlehem recently, and they literally got a first-hand view of the hotel from top to bottom. Starting on the eighth floor with a tour of the Presidential Suite, and making their way to the lower level where a speakeasy once flourished during Prohibition, the students spent the day learning about all the inner workings of the hotel. Photo: Executive Chef Michael Adams spends time in the kitchen with the students, explaining how food is prepared and how the staff work together. An award-winning chef, Adams is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. He returned to the Hotel Bethlehem as head chef in 2014.

BUSINESS

Lit Coffee Roastery and Bakeshop

Co-owner Dan Taylor roasts the coffee beans they import from environmentally sustainable farms in this commercial roaster. The roasted beans are then ground at the front counter. In tribute to folk singer Woody Guthrie’s and Taylor’s business partner, Matt Hengeveld’s own connection to Bethlehem-based “Sing Out!” magazine, their special house blend is called “Bound for Glory.”

POLITICS

Dent’s hastily organized town hall well attended

Despite less than a day’s notice, over 400 people braved a downpour and crammed into Hanover Township Community Center March 31 for a town hall with Congressman Charlie Dent (R-15th). The crowd was so huge for the hastily arranged meeting that parking had to be diverted to a nearby church. Photo: Congressman Charlie Dent’s 15th District includes all of Lehigh County, but only pieces of Northampton, Berks, Lebanon and Dauphin counties. Asked about the Trump travel ban, Dent said he thinks there is no real danger from the seven Muslim countries at which the ban was directed. “My concern is Europe,” he said.
