    In Wilkes-Barre, a Walk for Unity

    WILKES-BARRE — They walked in unity, as a community. A self-described rainbow of people: different colors, different religious, different backgrounds, all for one purpose.

    Meeting For Public Input After Human Remains Discovered

    NEW PHILADELPHIA—It was a surprising discovery when last month a worker digging along the side of Route 61 in North Manheim Township uncovered human remains, bones that historians believe may date back to at least 1918, a mass grave of victims of Spanish influenza. “A lot of it fits, people that died very rapidly and with the Spanish flu, you could wake up well and by the time the sun set, you were dead. So it was a catastrophic illness,” […]
