Yesterday's storms are giving way to a much calmer day today with high pressure resuming control. Expect any morning clouds to give way to partly sunny skies with highs in the lower 80s, lower humidity, and a nice westerly breeze.




Earlier this year, Kutztown student Uttam Paudel was invited to attend the prestigious 2017 United Nations Economic and Social Council Youth Forum, held on Jan. 30-31, 2017, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.   Paudel, an international student who is currently pursuing his undergraduate degree in political science, was selected as a youth envoy to discuss "The role of youth in poverty eradication and promoting prosperity in a changing world". As a result of his active involvement in plenary and interactive sessions, he was asked to report for the session on "Key Regional Priorities for Youth Development in the Asia-Pacific Region." The forum, says Paudel, provided him with opportunities of productive engagements.
