Teen sensation Justin Bieber wowed a sold-out Allentown Fair crowd made up almost entirely of girls ranging from roughly 3 to 16 years old. The concert Saturday night delivered what the audience wanted. Wonderfully choreographed versions of his hit songs. Lights. Smoke. Adorable Bieber baby photos on the video screen. He brought one teen girl on stage and handed her red roses while singing "One Less Lonely Girl. " You should have seen her look of pure joy. He showed off his skills by playing guitar and drums.

When pop singer Billy Joel needed a setting for his anthem to the industrial recession early in Ronald Reagan's presidency, he chose a place as innocent as the name sounds: Allentown.Oh, we're living here in Allentown, where they're closing all the factories down.Out in Bethlehem, they're killing time, filling out forms, standing in line.It was a depressing ditty, but Allentown and the surrounding Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania were proud of the attention nonetheless. That area of eastern Pennsylvania is roughly an hour or so from the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas (and less than three hours from Baltimore)

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -- Someday, perhaps, during the opening hours of faraway combat, enemy soldiers may confront the awful specter of a new American warrior.Before them would be a fearsome 6-foot, 7-inch robotic figure, swathed in titanium, with heavy-duty infantry weapons mounted beside its helmet, its malignant silence broken only by the hiss of escaping carbon dioxide gas.It would be TALOS -- named for the bronze, stone-hurling sentry of Greek mythology -- and inside, theoretically, amid microclimate control, periscopic/telescopic optics, laser ranger and a voice-command firing mechanism would be the modern, practically invincible GI.And should TALOS one day prevail on the battlefield, it may be recalled how its simple nativity occurred around the kitchen table of a small, bird-filled, third-floor apartment in Allentown at the hands of a bus driver's son and his wife.

Volvo AB of Sweden said yesterday that it would embark on a $50 million expansion and add 50 workers to its Mack Powertrain Division plant in Hagerstown as part of a sweeping restructuring across the company. But the truck maker also announced it would lay off up to three-quarters of its 120 workers at a parts facility in Baltimore as the company moves to streamline some operations. The changes in Maryland are a small piece of a plan outlined by Volvo, which acquired Mack in 2001, that executives said would make the truck company more cost-efficient.

My readers have done it. They've uncovered my ignorance of traffic patterns around York, Pa. They've proposed credible alternatives to my proposed routes for avoiding the dreaded Interstate 95 corridor during peak holiday travel to the Northeast. And they've suggested what might be a better way to avoid the Delaware Toll Stickup. But mostly, readers have been receptive to the concept of Delaware Avoidance. Lots of people, it seems, are fed up with the extortionate tolls and onerous backups along I-95, where highway authorities appear to delight in making motorists pay for the privilege of remaining parked in traffic.

HELLERTOWN, Pa. -- By the time Stephanie Fiscella dropped off her husband, Lou, at the park-and-ride lot here near Allentown at 6:15 on an icy Wednesday morning, all 100 parking spaces were filled. Several cars sat in unmarked slots or stopped on a snow bank. Some commuters left handbags and briefcases on the curb to mark their places on the bus line while they huddled inside their cars. Fiscella has been making the two-hour commute to Manhattan for the three years since his family moved from Staten Island to the Lehigh Valley.

The Pennsylvania legislature is expected to approve a bill today that would provide the revenue formula for a $34.3 million stadium in Allentown, a city of 104,000 less than three hours away.
