Some of these artists make it seem easy. Then you keep looking, and they make doing a print seem very, very hard. Some of the prints in the juried 10th biennial "National Print Show," which Moravian College in Bethlehem organized and is displaying, appear casually put together and are easy to look at. But they are extremely seductive. The informality may be elaborately orchestrated, as in Wayne Kimball's lithographs. Once their simple charm has worked, they start taking on another life.

From the time they start school, students attend Career Days to meet professionals and see what their job options are. But what they don't do at those Career Days is take the time to ask themselves: What career would I be best at? And what do I have to do to build that career? This week, Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pa., held its first summer career camp to help high school students consider those questions. "I came here because I didn't know what I wanted to become," said camp participant Greg Bader, 15, of Stroudsburg, one of 16 students at the week-long session on the Moravian campus in Lehigh County.

Daniel Dallmann is not an "eyeball realist" or a photo-realist, but at times a metaphysical realist who likes complicated subjects. Moreover, the exhibit of paintings and drawings at Moravian College by this North Wales artist and Tyler Art School faculty member throws new light on his work. For years, Dallmann - a reticent man who prefers to work quietly in his studio instead of entering the rat race - has been working in a personal artistic territory mandated solely by an imagination that stamps him as highly unusual in his own time.

Alan Heverly, typical baby-boomer, survived the '60s, the Vietnam War draft lottery, and three layoffs. He could not, however, make it through his first Generation X party. Heverly, at 41, is Moravian College's No. 1 tennis player and misfit. Last spring, eager to ease the intergenerational angst (his and theirs) that his belated collegiate arrival created, younger teammates invited him to a campus party. The experience, dude, was definitely not way cool. "I left," Heverly said.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Jordan Spieth wasn't wearing the University of Texas' burnt orange when he met the British Open media Wednesday, but his home-state connections were obvious anyway. The thoughtful answers of the golfing phenom, who beginning Thursday is aiming for a third consecutive major championship after winning the Masters and U.S. Open earlier this year, had a slight Southwest twang, and when the subject of Fort Worth legend Ben Hogan was raised, his tone turned reverent. Yet for all his Lone Star loyalty, it may be the 21-year-old's Pennsylvania roots - less-known but as deep as a St. Andrews pot bunker - that on the eve of his history-making Old Course quest better explain Spieth's rapid rise to golf's summit.

It was an evening out that college students Leslie Pope and John Wagner will long remember. Not only did they get what they called lousy service, they got handcuffed and arrested. All over a $16.35 tip. They were with a half-dozen friends at the Lehigh Pub in Bethlehem last month, so the establishment tacked what it called a mandatory 18 percent gratuity onto the bill of about $73, according to reports. Pope and Wagner refused to pay. "You can't give us terrible, terrible service and expect a tip," said Pope, a 22-year-old Moravian College senior who's a Pottsville native, according to the Lehigh Valley Express-Times . They had to find their own napkins and cutlery while their waitress caught a smoke, had to ask the bar for soda refills, and had to wait over an hour for salad and wings, they told NBC10.

THOSE ARE MEAN STREETS OUT THERE FOR CHILDREN Our children are growing up in an ethically polluted society. Every eight seconds a child runs away. Every 46 seconds a child is neglected or abused. Every 67 seconds a child gives birth. Every seven minutes a child is arrested for drug offenses. Every 30 minutes a child is arrested for drunken driving. Every 36 minutes a child is killed or injured by a gun. And every 53 minutes a child in the United States dies from poverty. We have lost our sense of what is important as people.

ISSUE | CLIMATE Pontiff shipping out? Since Pope Francis has called for action to stem climate change, I expect he will have to set sail soon across the Atlantic if he expects to reach Philadelphia by September. It will be a long, hot voyage without air conditioning, eating only floating kelp and raw fish. But maybe the Lord will provide manna. |Jim Malecka, Medford, jjmalecka@comcast.net ISSUE | MORAVIANS Christmas City star In Beth Kephart's lively account of her trip to Bethlehem, one name was missing: Nikolaus von Zinzendorf ("Right at home," June 14)

PHILADELPHIA The filing of criminal charges doesn't change the basic reality for her family, Anne Reid said. Her son and daughter-in-law are still gone. The people who loved them still mourn. On Tuesday, North Carolina authorities announced that a hired limousine driver was allegedly under the influence when his car ran off the highway and crashed four months ago, killing newlywed Philadelphia schoolteachers Will and Jamie Reid. Rodney Koon, 46, of Asheville, N.C., was charged with driving while impaired and two counts of felony death by motor vehicle in the Aug. 11 wreck.

"Only the groundhogs get it fresher," read a sheet that Frederick W. McConnell Jr. used to hand to customers at his fruit orchard in a back-roads Montgomery County village. At other times of the year, his students at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pa., might have felt they couldn't get insights any fresher than they got from him, during the three decades that he taught philosophy there. In dedicating its yearbook to Dr. McConnell, the Class of 1970 wrote that "he is the closest thing to a genius on campus.

Capt. Christopher Seifert went to college with one goal in mind, to be an Army officer. He wore his army fatigues proudly on the Moravian College campus in Bethlehem, where he graduated with a history degree in 1997. He'd file into Robert Stinson's history class in fatigues after ROTC training. He'd show up in full uniform to act as ambassador to prospective students and recruiter to ROTC candidates. "As passionate as he was to be a soldier, it's hard to accept that his life was taken by another American soldier," said retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Wolfenden, who recruited Seifert to the ROTC program that Moravian students take at neighboring Lehigh University.
