Bethlehem City Council Sept. 5 approved an ethics ordinance that limits gifts to officials and employees in the city government. City employees, to include elected officials, will be subject to penalty if they accept gifts valued more than a token or nominal value.
Friends and family gathered last Saturday morning to celebrate the life of one of Bethlehem’s illustrious sons, Dr. Russel K. Laros Jr. They came together June 24 at Rosemont Lutheran Church on West Broad Street just as the morning’s cloudy start gave way to brilliant blue skies.
The memorial service was attended by family which included his son, Russell Keller Laros III of Hawaii and his daughter Ann Laros-Weaver of Dubai both of whom spoke to the attendees. Several grandchildren and other family members also attended.
