    Philadelphia Inquirer: “For 104 years, the bell at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in hilly, blue-collar Manayunk has joyfully summoned the faithful to prayer, celebrated marriages, and marked the ends of wars . . . The Rev. James A. Lyons, pastor of St. John’s, received a warning letter last week from the city Health Department. The missive threatened the 179-year-old church with fines of up to $700 per day if the pealing bell is found to violate the city’s 2006 noise law.”
