Over the last 23 years Sheldon Adelson has built Las Vegas Sands Corp. into the world's largest casino company — bigger than the next 10 competitors combined. He's done it without having a single one of his 40,000 workers in Las Vegas, Asia and Bethlehem, Pa., join a labor union. Now a band of security guards making $13 an hour may be on the verge of ending the world's 14th-richest person's winning streak. The National Labor Relations Board has ordered Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem to begin bargaining with its 130 security guards as a labor union.

They just wanted her suffering to end. So they painted her nails. It didn't work. "Let's change her earrings," her father suggested softly and kindly. They did; it didn't work either. "Let's get Noel," her friend suggested. So the family, with the permission of doctors and nurses at Lehigh Valley Hospital, brought her pet dachshund to the intensive care unit. Just like at home in Bethlehem Township, Noel jumped into her bed and curled up at the ankles she could not feel.

"I'd love to go to Germany for Christmas," my mother often said when I was growing up, having visions of Kriss Kringle, the sparkle of candles on tannenbaum , carolers in the street and festive Christmas markets, all in a country where the season is celebrated with gusto. Though we were not a religious family, Christmas was important in our house, and yet we never went. As an adult, I've had the same hankering, with the same result. The anchor of family here is simply too good a reason to stay home.

A great city for any season I enjoyed the story about Bethlehem, Pa. [" ' Christmas City' Filled With Holiday Tradition," by Karl Zimmermann, Dec. 25]. It's an amazing place any time, and especially at this time of year. I live near there and know the Historic Bethlehem area well both at Christmas and at other seasons of the year. The Moravians have a marvelous, continuing tradition. Donald S. Heintzelman Zionsville, Pa. His own trip globetrotting I howled with glee when I read David Lamb's Dec. 18 story, "A Gift of the World.

Before he went on to his career as a police officer in Washington state, Mark Renninger was born and raised in Bethlehem, Pa., and on Friday, more than 1,000 people from his hometown gathered to say farewell to the man who was gunned down with three fellow officers last week near Seattle. Residents braved numbingly cold winds outside Liberty High School, where Renninger was a standout strong safety and an A student, to watch the funeral procession. The procession, which lasted most of the day and wound throughout the city, drew family, friends, police officers and people who had never met Renninger but had heard what happened in a coffee shop in Lakeland, Wash.
