Rock the Vote recruits young voters

Vote for Kerry. Vote for Bush. Heck, pull a lever for Nader if you want, but by all means vote. That was the message Sunday when the Rock the Vote nationwide bus tour invaded Lehigh University for a free concert that organizers hoped would entice students to register for the November election. The tour sponsored by the likes of MTV and Sunkist rolled onto Lehigh's Mountaintop Campus to put on a one-day crash course in Politics 101.

Ben Franklin Technology Partners and Lehigh University have formed a committee to examine the potential for a wireless network, which would be part of a Keystone Innovation Zone announced in July. The zone is envisioned as a place where entrepreneurs, students and recent graduates draw on research done at area colleges to form startup companies. Lehigh is aggressively targeting ''technology transfer,'' in which research done at the university is converted into commercial products and services.

Shop owners glad roadwork done

The echoing din of paving trucks and the dank smell and dark smoke of fresh asphalt hit the four blocks of W. Fourth Street in south Bethlehem for one last time Friday as business owners and residents kissed goodbye to a long, noisy and unusually slow summer. PennDOT's contractor and the city worked together to plan around the normally slow summer months when Lehigh University students are gone.
