    The Solemn Novena from your Smartphone

    SCRANTON — The solemn novena to St. Ann has drawn Catholics to Scranton for almost a century. Now, organizers have implemented some 21st-century technology to help draw even more people to the event. It’s a mid-July tradition in Scranton’s west side, 91 years in the making. Catholics visit St. Ann’s Basilica for reflection, and while heads are bowed in prayer during down time, you’re sure to see some heads bowed toward smartphones, too. So, the organizers of the solemn novena […]

    Catching Up with the Quads

    SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP —  Quadruplets from Lackawanna County are now high school grads. It may seem like a long time to follow a story, 18 years. If there’s a good enough reason, in this case, four good reasons, then it’s worth seeing how it all turns out. We first met the four in the NICU of Community Medical Center in Scranton on February 20, 1998, all 40 little fingers and toes. Mom and dad would take a lot more pictures in […]

That’s what eco-explorers at camp near Daleville aim to do this week. “Especially nowadays, the last 10 years or so, most of our children and adults, have their heads in their iPhone or computers and it’s really good just to get them out into nature and have real experiences,” said Sharon Yanick-Craig, Environmental Education Center. Downpours […]

    SCRANTON — Some soon-to-be high schoolers were given a hands-on lesson in sustainability on Tuesday in Scranton. The lesson for the incoming high school freshman fits the scenery on North Irving Avenue in Scranton. “We’ve been learning about conserving energy, recycling, planting,” said Abygale Bergamino of Old Forge. “Since we’re the generation that’s going to have to face the effects of pollution we see around, so we need to find ways to preserve the environment, to use new energy, so […]

    Businesses Sign Petition to Boycott Scranton Taxes

    SCRANTON — Dozens of business owners in Scranton have signed a petition to boycott two controversial taxes. Gary St. Fleur is not a Scranton business owner. He’s an activist who runs a blog called Save Scranton, and he’s angry about a tax that businesses in the city have to pay. “The thing is, that they just go to a bar and talk about it amongst themselves. I said, we need to formalize this. We need to organize, and bring people […]
