Lucy (left) and Pearl are office assistants at Steve’s Auto Body in Manor Township. Pearl was rescued and was named for her pearl-white face. Feel free to pet Lucy as much as you want – she loves the attention.


A bear in Brady’s Bend Township has emerged from his long winter’s nap for a snack on New Year’s Eve. Warmer temperatures may be confusing the hibernation¬†cycle.
