Allen and Lehigh townships to Jointly use leaf collection gear


1932 Victoria DEUCENBERG owned by Dave Mirro.

Victoria Deucenberg Headed to Chicago

While most of us are still in the winter doldrums, including the groundhog, landscape contractor Dave Mirro, of Bushkill Township, is very busy preparing for the upcoming spring season. Despite the preseason frenzy, however, Mirro finds time for his life-long passion, classic cars. These days he’s focused on The Victoria Deucenberg,, his prized 1932 fivewindow Ford coupe, which has been gathering tributes across the country since 2010 when he completed its fouryear long end to end customization. Mirro and classic car builders Glenn and Craig Smith of Phoenix Rod & Custom, Hackettstown, NJ, are preparing the car for the third biggest show in the country, the Chicago World of Wheels on March 1. After that, the fuschia hot rod, whose name was inspired by a courageous little girl adopted from Russia, is being considered for a six-month display at Hershey Museum. The car won Outstanding Street Rod at the 2011 Philadelphia Rod & Custom Nationals and Best in Class one

year earlier at the AutoRama Car Show in Detroit, the “superbowl” of hot rod shows. Chip Foos, a renowned hot rod designer and star of the TLC show Overhaulin’, won Best in Show at the same event Following the 2010 Street Rod Nationals in Kentucky, Mirro’s car was featured in Streetscene Magazine as one of the top hot rods in the country. In 2011, The Victoria Deucenberg went on to win International Show Car Association awards at the 50th Annual World of Wheels competition in Pittsburgh. These included Best in Class, and Outstanding undercarriage, interior and paint. Dupont Corporation donated the paint for the car to showcase its new “Hot Hues” collection. Mirro’s love affair with cars began in his teens at the local hillclimbs and dirt tracks , but his lifelong dream was to build a show car. “I always liked history in school, which is why I like cars from the past,” he says. The Victoria Deucenberg is a dream fulfilled.

Other Matters • Now that an agreement has been reached with Northampton Borough over the sewage issue, the board discussed what kind of tapping and connection fee should be charged. Supervisor Al Pierce suggested a $4,000 flat fee. The board went along with that for 2013, with Solicitor Lincoln Treadwell noting that it can be changed in the future. • Ms. Eckhart had an ADA Compliance Plan on the agenda. Treadwell said a plan should be in place so it can serve as a guide with side-

board last Tuesday that the signs with four-inch numbers should be on the side of the street where the home is located, on the house or garage. Where there are long driveways, the number should be posted at the end next to the roadway. Supervisor Bruce Frack suggested that a GPS unit on the fire trucks would serve just as well, as long as they know the house number. The matter was tabled for further study, with no action taken as yet. Such house numbers are used in Moore, East Allen and Bushkill townships.

Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has awarded a grant to Allen Township that will benefit both that municipality and neighboring Lehigh Township. Allen Township Manager Ilene Eckhart, a leading force behind the original joint recycling program in this area, said on Thursday that the $114,316 grant will be used to purchase two pull-behind self-contained leaf collectors; two 30-yard open top containers, and retrofit one existing tandem dump truck to add a J hook roll-off assembly for the multi-municipal yard waste recycling program. All yard waste shall be processed at the facility in Weaversville that operates in compliance with applicable DEP guidelines and regulations. At their meeting last Tuesday, the Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors said they would sign an agreement with Allen Township, so that Lehigh could use the equipment as well. Residential Numbers? The Allen Township fire chief sent a letter to the board asking that they consider having property owners put their street number in front of their homes so they can be identified in case of any fire or rescue emergency. He told the

A dress code requiring students to dress for success was proposed at last week’s school board meeting according to the district website. The proposed dress code was originally drafted in 2007 but was not adopted at that time. If passed, students may be required to give up wearing t-shirts and blue jeans to class as early as the fall 2013 semester. The proposed policy calls for dress or casual Docker-

Ask Bill Bath Lions Football and Bath Lions Club

Question from a subscriber:

I’m confused, are the Bath Lions football / cheerleaders teams part of the Bath Lions Club? I recently bought a raffle ticket from the Bath Lions, but I’m having no luck in trying to contact someone from the group that sold me the ticket, to see if I’m a winner. No, the Bath Lions football team is a separate community organization,

apparently named after the Detroit Lions of the National Football League, and is NOT a part of the service club known as Lions. The Bath Lions Club is a part of Lions Clubs International and District 14-K in Lehigh and Northampton Counties. The club co-sponsors Boy Scout Troop 33 and no other organization. Lions and Lionesses are community service clubs of men and women age 21 and up who voluntarily help the needy, the blind and the communities in which they are located. The Bath Lions club has never sold any raffle tickets, only tickets for such events as breakfast or suppers. If you would like to join, see a member or contact 610428-1965.

Condition of Bath Street a Disgrace To the Editor: About two weeks ago you wrote an article [Council, 2/7] about using tax money to fix roads. I live in this town of Bath since June of 1999. I am very upset with the short piece of road at Chestnut and Northampton streets. Paul’s Garage and the restaurant that is now closed I’m sure pay taxes for their businesses. This short piece of road is a disgrace to this little town. Who is responsible for this left go road for many years?Some say it is PennDOT. Well, if it is PennDOT, why hasn’t our council people and mayor contacted PennDOT to get it fixed??? If it is Bath’s responsibility, then our borough should have it fixed A.S.A.P.!! It is time for Bath Council to take action.

I drive around it. I go out of my way not to drive on this road, and I am sure there are other people like myself disgusted with this situation. I pay my taxes to live in this town of Bath. If I did not pay my taxes, they would be after me. Had to vent. Patricia Palencar

(ED.: That stretch of road is owned by the borough. Council is very much aware of it, and the situation will be addressed, but over the long term since it has to be torn up completely down to the sub-base for resurfacing.)

Photos and/or Info on Old Jacksonville Hotel To the Editor: My husband and I bought the house in Jacksonville, that was the Jacksonville Hotel. We’ve heard many stories about this hotel from several people that grew up in Jacksonville. I’ve been asking around if there are any pictures or articles regarding the Jacksonville Hotel. So far, I’ve come up only with the answer “no.” I was told by one person to contact the courthouse, that they should have something on the hotel. So I was wondering if you know of any place I can go to see pictures and/or read articles on this matter. Can you help me? I’m not sure going to the courthouse would produce the things we’re looking for. Mrs. David Shaver 7475 Arrowhead Rd. Bath, PA 18014 (ED.: From information we’ve been able to get, the hotel before World War II was owned by the late “Doc” and Elsie Gilbert; then purchased by a man named Wirth. After that, it was co-owned by the late Milt Kochenash and Harry Mauser. It burned to the ground on Dec. 6, 1946. Anyone having photos should contact Mrs. Shaver.)

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip I think both groundhogs are right. Punxatawney Phil said spring would be early and the groundhog at Lodge #1 on the Lehigh said we’d get six more weeks of winter. It was bitter cold with winds that lowered the temperatures down to single digits this week, so that was the cold-d-d part of winter. We’ve been getting snow showers at times to make the grounds white, and then the sun comes out and it warms up enough to melt it away. We aren’t gonna see any early flowers or leaves on the trees, but a little warm-up now and then is a forerunner of spring, so we’ll take it whenever we can get it. . . . The Phillies pitchers and catchers, and more team mates are down in Clearwater, Florida, so spring has started there, the training that is. I’m glad to be reading about baseball again, and I can’t wait to tune in on TV or watch games in person. Let’s hope for better results this time around. . . . I see “Fi” Mirabito has tossed her hat in the ring to run for mayor in town. So as more and more candidates make their announcements we can get ready for those municipal elections. That’s when they’re really local and we know the people who are running for office. Best of luck to the winners when primary election day rolls around. . . .Hats off to Jeff Gostony for coming up with some good ideas for his car dealership. Bath boy makes good. . . . Also saw in last week’s news that Moore Township is gonna have a tractor race when they celebrate their 250th anniversary in three years. That oughta be a sight, watching all those farm tractors moving along the roads. . . . Took notice that the Masons in town are gonna have a blood drive this Saturday for Miller-Keystone, doing it at their hall on Penn Street. There’s always a need for blood for people in the hospital. How about giving a pint, folks!! . . . . I hear the Lions club in town is gonna take up a collection of food for the local food bank come next weekend, the 1st and 2nd of March, down at Ahart’s market. Let’s help ‘em fill up boxes and boxes of canned goods and other kinds of foods that aren’t perishable so families that are having a tough time feeding their young’uns will do better. . . .All because of that hurricane, the kids had school on Presidents Day, but it’s better to make up time now than later when it gets warm in June. . . .Is it Point Phillips or Point Phillip? Nice to see that the old hotel is gonna open up again, and looking good, from what I read. . . . Seeing that youngster on TV preparing to run in a marathon in the Antarctica, reminded me about the race/ walk the BBCP in town is gonna have come May 11th. Better start training now, gang, if you want to win, even if it

is cold outside. I hear Tom Petrucci, the borough manager, is tuning up. I’ll be rooting for the runners and walkers on the sideline. . . . Elmira has some linament for me now. My bones are aching. Hope you’re on the healthy side.

$1.6 Million Ok’d for Seven County Projects

State Sen. Lisa Boscola announced a total of $1.675 million in state grant funds for seven economic development and infrastructure projects in Northampton County. “This portion of gaming proceeds helps fund community improvement and economic development efforts that create jobs, stimulate local investment and improve the quality of life in our communities,” Boscola said. “I am pleased with how our region is benefiting through the use of funds from the state’s growing gaming industry. I will continue to work with local leaders on ways to use state resources to bolster local efforts.” Among those that received funding is Northampton Borough. The Borough received $65,000 to purchase a blighted vacant lot where Kroope’s

Clothing and General Store once stood. The property will be transformed into an urban park in the uptown business district.

Grow Your Small Business Sticky Buns Rock I’m off to their kitchen to make Sticky Buns! I have some experience with those delicious hunks of goo but I decided to let Kerry teach me. We rolled the dough, splashed it with tons of melted butter, spinkled his secret recipe for cinnamon and began to roll again. I rolled and rolled. Then the tray of nuts and raisins arrived and underneath was a big, fat layer of goo. We then cut them to just the right width and started lining them up for the oven. If you are a facebook fan, check out the Town Crier Bakery and you can see the delectable desserts they provide for their customers. Do you want your business to be “fit”? I mean lots of customers and lots of revenue? If so, follow Kerry and Roseann’s secret to success; change it up, outrageous customer service, bring on the new and exciting and don’t forget to go over the top for the customer that has special needs. Their STICKY BUNS ROCK, especially when they are free. If it’s free it’s for me!


What a week! I had the opporuntiy to be a guest host on the new TV show the PEAK airing Sunday’s at 6:30 on WFMZ. The segmnet was about “Businesses Fitness” so we were off to find a business who has a “Fit” and Florishing Business. We went to Peddlers Village to explore the secret to success for Kerry and Roseann, the owners of the Town Crier Bakery. As I walked in the door, and smelled the sweet aroma of the bakery, Roseann came running over to me and said, “Welcome to the Town Crier Bakery.” The windows and shelves were filled with beautifully decorated cakes, pastries, cupcake, cookies and more. A beautiful sight. I sat down to interview Roseann and asked, “What is your secret weapon, what do you do that no one else does, what makes you a fit business?” “We have three secret weapons. First, Kerry has spent his life baking and dreamed for years of owning a bakery, his creations are unique and ever changing.” (CHANGE) “Second, our customers are so important to us, we want them to feel welcome and we will do our best to custom bake anything they want, whether it’s vegan, gluten free, egg free, or sugar free”. Roseann told me that they have a customer who is allegic to eggs, so Kerry went out and bought duck eggs and made her a cake (OVER THE TOP OUTRAGEOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE) “And third, we offer specials all the time, today is free sticky bun Thursday”. (NEW & EXCITING) CHANGE, OVER THE TOP OUTRAGEOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE AND NEW & EXCITING that’s not only their secret to success it can be yours too!

The concert will be performed by the world-famous Allentown Band, directed by Ronald Demkee, and the Nazareth Community Band, directed by Ralph Brodt. Each band will play some pieces individually and then will perform together. The concert features both familiar and lesser-known pieces, including music from "Phantom of the Opera," "Les Miserables," "Guys and Dolls," "My Fair Lady," and "Beauty and the Beast." It also includes selections from "El Capitan," John Philip Sousa’s most popular operetta, and a Gilbert & Sullivan medley. As a tribute to the Nazareth Rotary Club’s railroad theme for this program year, the Allentown Band will play an arrangement of "I’ve Been Working on the Railroad" by Lucien Cailliet, a well-known composer and arranger who was an associate conductor of the Allentown Band from 1934 - 1969. The concert is being organized by the Nazareth Rotary Club, and proceeds will help to support community needs and organizations. Tickets are $10 ($5 for children un-

der 10), available in advance from the Nazareth Y, Nazareth Library, Whitefield House Museum, any Rotarian, and at the door on the day of the concert. Before the concert, ticket-hold-

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie


The 2013 Super Bowl was a surprise in several ways. First, many didn’t know until sports announcers reminded viewers that San Francisco was already a leader in Super Bowl championships--before this year’s game was played. Only the Pittsburgh Steelers had won more Super

Bowls than San Francisco--6 to 5. Dallas was tied with San Francisco at 5. No other NFL team had won as many as 5 Super Bowls. The Green Bay Packers had won 4. The Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins and New England Patriots have won 3. Ten NFL teams have never won a Super Bowl--the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings have never won one. Would be nice to see one of those win a Super Bowl.

Recognizing the Pennsylvania Long Rifle By State Representative Marcia Hahn 138th Legislative District

I have introduced House Bill 636, legislation that would designate the Pennsylvania Long Rifle as the state’s official firearm. The bill has co-sponsor support from 36 House members. The Pennsylvania Long Rifle played a significant role in American history through its use in the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. My legislation recognizes its contribution to the development of our country and its origin in the Commonwealth. Developed in the early 1700’s, the Pennsylvania Long Rifle is considered the first truly American firearm. It was the product of German gunsmiths who immigrated to new settlements in south eastern Pennsylvania. Residents of the 138th Legislative District know Northampton County is “home” to the Pennsylvania Long Rifle Museum, which is part of the John Joseph Henry House Museum on the Boulton Historic Site in Nazareth. The earliest gunsmiths that can be documented are said to have been located in Berks and Lancaster counties. In fact, the Lancaster County Historical Society has an original Pennsylvania Long Rifle that was passed down for seven generations before being donated to the society in the middle of the 20th century. Information on this or any other legislative topic should be directed to my district office at (610) 746-2100.

Clean Closets Make a Happy Home When it comes to getting the house clean and tidy, closets often get left off the to-do list. From hall closets and linen closets to bedroom closets, "out of sight, out of mind" thinking quickly leads to clutter - and then frustration when you can't find what you need when you need it. But a little planning and a few simple tips can help you get your closets in user-friendly shape in no time. Put your closets on your calendar. Take stock of your schedule and commit some time to tackle your closets. Set realistic expectations you don't have to conquer all your closets at once. It may make sense for your family to forego TV one evening a week and focus on one closet at a time, for example. Start by sorting. • If you haven't worn a piece of clothing in the past year - or you can't remember the last time you wore something - then you don't need it. Other items to purge from your closet: children's clothes and shoes that are either too small or too worn out to pass down to a sibling or a friend. • Sort your remaining clothes by season and then into piles to keep or pass down. If you have limited closet space, keep only the current season's wardrobe in your closet. Carefully pack and store the rest for later. • Linen closets stay more organized when you stack similar sized items together. Sort sheets by size, and group washcloths, hand towels and bath towels together. • For closets that hold everything from the vacuum cleaner to art supplies and anything in between, work one shelf at a time. Sort items by categories and dedicate one shelf or area of the closet to

each group. Eliminate excess - but don't throw it away. As the saying goes, one man's trash is another's treasure. There are easy ways to donate your unwanted items to benefit those in need. One example is DonateStuff. com, where you can request pre-paid UPS shipping bags that make it simple and free to send in unwanted clothes, shoes, accessories and household linens. Your donation benefits one of three national nonprofits of your choosing: AMVETS, Easter Seals, or The Purple Heart. It's tax deductible, and it reduces waste. Americans throw away an average of 68 pounds of clothing each year - helps keep over 470,000 pounds of clothing out of landfills every week. You can learn more at Green up your storage. When it's time to put things back into place, instead of buying new containers to hold things, look around the house for boxes and containers you already heave. Baskets, crates and even empty shoeboxes can be reused to keep your closets more organized. Repeat often. You don't have to wait until the next neighborhood yard sale before you sift through your closets again. As with most household chores, a little maintaince goes a long way to keep your closets looking neat and clean. You could even keep a bag in each of your kids' closets and encourage them to set aside gently used and outgrown items on a regular basis. You'll be amazed at how much happier clean closets can make the whole house feel - especially when you turn the stuff you don't need into a good deed.

Engineer Philip Malitsch gave the Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors a choice for their municipal well at their meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 12. They could either tap in the municipal authority’s well and add piping, or drill a new well where there would be no need for a great deal of pipes. They authorized the engineer to draw up specifications for a new well, as the best alternative. An ordinance was adopted reducing the speed limit on Bayberry Drive and N. Cottonwood Rd. and establishing a permanent stop sign on Red Maple Drive.

The board discussed recommendations by the Recreation Board, including reducing residency in sports from 35% to 25%; a $5 per game fee, and setting a time limit on lighting the fields. There was some disagreement over the lighting as it was observed that sometimes games are extended. Approval was given to joint use of recycling equipment with East Allen Township, where a grant has been received from DEP for a leaf vac. Solicitor David Backenstoe said a response has been received from PennDOT over a water problem along Walnut Drive.

Chief Reports Police Chief Scott Fogel reported that a Northampton County gaming grant will go toward equipment for police vehicles. A $35,000 Monroe County gaming grant will be used for computers. He said the department will put in two cell blocks in their building. Fogel told the board that motorists are violating the law to stop when red lights are flashing on school buses. One child was almost hit by a vehicle that didn’t stop, and Fogel said one driver tried to go around him while he was in his private car. There is a $250 fine for not stopping. Chief Fogel has completed his six-month probationary period and received a round of applause from the board and audience. A resident complained to him about speeding along Blue Mountain Drive. The police report of activities for January showed: 8,756 miles traveled; 676 calls logged; 16 reportable accidents and 11 non-reportable accidents investigated; 23

Lower Nazareth agrees to traffic study on Werner Rd. By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Lower Nazareth Township’s Board of Supervisors on Thursday okayed a traffic study on truck restrictions for Werner Road. Residents had complained that tractor-trailers are using the loop road off Newburg Rd., apparently following their GPS units as

they head to East Allen Township. Engineer Al Kortze said trucks are hard on the surface paving and also that it has a narrow radius for turning. Upper Nazareth Township had already agreed to a traffic study on the roadway, since it is partially in their township as well. They are sharing the cost of the $400 engineering

study with Lower Nazareth. Solicitor Gary Asteak will draw up an ordinance closing the road to truck traffic and signs will be posted signifying “No Trucks Allowed”. Truckers ignoring the signs would be subject to heavy fines. This followed similar complaints of heavy truck traffic

Lenten Gatherings Begin After Ash Wednesday

World Day of Prayer will be observed on March 1.

The Converted Youth

An angular mountain youth responded to the call of the presiding officer of the Cumberland presbytery for “all who had felt impressions to preach to come forward.” When the lad stepped from the dark corner of the large log cabin into the blinking light of the candles and log fire, he was weeping bitterly. For a full minute he stood silent with every eye on him. He cleared his throat then commenced: “I’ve come to presby--.” But a new wave of tears stopped his utterance. The moderator kindly prompted, “You came here why, my son? Take your time, tell us all about it.” The lad started again, and yet again, then a fourth time only to be choked with his own tears. Then such words flowed from his lips that surpassed anything that had ever rung through that assembly. The oldest minister there said that his words scorched and burnt. This was his story. A few months before, he had met and given directions to a traveling preacher who was lost. The minister, gripped by the boy’s total ignorance of spiritual things, had spent an hour telling him of man’s sin and spiritual need. He concluded in kneeling and earnestly praying for him. Days later the boy heard an inward voice saying, “Repent, why will ye die?” He felt a weight like a mountain upon his soul. Sleep forsook his eyelids. His axe rusted by the pile. His rifle hung dust-covered on the wall. Neighbors pronounced him deranged. When the lad first “saw the light” in a camp meeting, the place was shattered with his happy cry, “I’ve got it!” He went from cabin to cabin in exultant joy of the spiritual new birth. Daily his ardor increased. In amazement the mountaineers listened as he urged them to forsake sin and seek the Lord. By the time he finished his spell-binding oration to the presbytery, the log fire had burned low. The grayhaired moderator sobbed aloud. George Willets was duly received as a candidate for the ministry. Years later he was still a fireball for the Lord. When he talked of heaven, men felt they were in the vestibule of the city of God. When he spoke of hell--men trembled! On one occasion more than 500 were gripped with conviction and went forward to repent of sin and accept Christ as Savior. My prayer is that God would save many youth today as He saved George and use them to impact the world!

Police Blotter Colonial Regional Retail Theft, Marijuana Possession

CRPD arrested Rashon Turner, 21, of 206 Morris St., Phillipsburg, N.J., on Jan. 29 at 8:02 p.m. after he concealed a mobile hot spot device in his pants and left the WalMart store in the Northampton Crossings mall without paying for the item. After his arrest for retail theft, police found nine zip-loc bags of marijuana in his coat. Turner is being charged with a summary retail theft and possession of a small amount of marijuana. Charges were filed through District Judge Joseph Barner’s office.

Retail Theft, Struggle Lead Woman to Jail

CRPD responded to the Kohl’s store in the Northampton Crossings mall on Jan. 29 at 12:30 p.m. for a retail theft in progress. Loss Prevention saw a female, later identified as Nicole Sestak, 30, of Parker Ave., Easton, enter the store with what appeared to be an empty purse. She was seen selecting clothing and jewelry from the displays, enter a fitting room for an extended period of time and then come out with some of the merchandise. She placed some items back on the displays and selected other merchandise and went to another fitting room for an extended length of time. She then left the fitting room with some of the merchandise and again returned it to the display. Ms. Sestak exited the store, passing all points of sale, carrying a full purse and full plastic bag. She tried to flee in her car as Loss Prevention and an officer tried to stop her. Ms. Sestak refused to comply and began to struggle and fight with the officer to get away. She was taken into custody and charged with
