After harrowing accident, an uplifting Christmas
A Conshohocken family gets a helping hand from friends in Chestnut Hill.

It was primary election day, and Bailey Ehasz and her friend had the day off. The two girls had been up late at Bailey’s house, hanging out, noshing on junk food and being silly. They passed out on the couches in the living room, and when Dawn Ehasz left for work the next morning, she remembers looking at the girls and pausing for a moment before she walked out the door with a “buh-bye, luv ya” to her sleeping 11-year-old and her friend.

“You remember the last thing you said to your child,” said Dawn, sitting in a friend’s house a few doors up from her family’s home in Conshohocken, recalling the morning of May 19.

The Christmas spirit

Last week I received an e-mail from a reader demanding to know why on earth I’d headlined a story about the Sovereign Bank nativity scene “The Crèche is Back.” That headline ran at the top of page one with a story about the return of the crèche to the Sovereign Bank location after a year absence.

“It’s a nativity scene,” wrote the e-mailer. “Write it that way! Shame on you!”
