The 34th annual Live Christmas Pageant was held Dec. 8 and 9 at the Rose Garden Band Shell in Bethlehem. The re-enactment of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ featured a cast of 125 costumed actors accompanied by live music from the Chancel Choir of Bethany United Church of Christ, a narrative of the Christmas story and live animals. There is no charge to attend the one-hour outdoor presentation. The pageant committee is making special plans for next year's 35th anniversary of the local production, according to LBCP President David M. Landis of Bethlehem.

No tax increase, but 2013 budget takes $15.8 million from savings

Northampton County Council approved county government's $328 million 2013 budget with only one dissenting vote and some staffing request refusals.

For 2013, the millage rate will remain at 10.8. For a taxpayer with a property assessed at $50,000, that means $540 in county taxes.

The majority of council supported the balanced budget because of the no-tax increase.
