This past weekend, I attended a wedding rehearsal dinner. The guest attire was a mix of casual and semi-formal attire. Some guests had on jeans and others were dressed up.

It is, of course, the Buddy Holly story retold on stage as “Buddy,” an exuberant musical through July 14, Northampton Community College Summer Theater.
The story begins in Lubbock, Texas, where 20-year-old Buddy Holly is starting out as a country-western singer. He’s...
In the mid-1960s, many teen boys, even before they could drive, wanted a Mustang.
So did many teen girls.
Just ask “Mustang Sally” (a Top 20 hit in 1966 for Wilson Pickett).
The Mustang was a point of pride for those in the Lehigh Valley who knew that the Pony Car, as it was dubbed, was the brainchild of Allentown native Lido Anthony “Lee” Iacocca, President of Ford Motor Company (1970-1978). Iacocca would go on to become President-CEO of Chrysler Corporation (1978, and...
