    Now that Rushawn Grange and Travon Williams have finally found a home, the duo has the Northeast High School football program back where it expected to be all along: the playoffs.

  • End of an era

    In his more than 50 years at Souder and Unruh, Joe Delaney has seen a lot inside his one-chair barber shop.

  • Northeast Victim Service recognizes local merchant

    It can take only a few seconds for someone to become the victim of a violent or invasive crime, but the trauma can endure for what seems like an eternity in the form of physical injuries, emotional distress and financial demands.
