Trucker fined for driving on Township Line Road

Chief Alan Siegried of the Upper Nazareth Police Department said this past Thursday, Dec. 29 that a Werner Express tractor trailer was involved in a traffic incident. The trailer’s rear wheels went up an embankment on Township Line Road and became

lodged in the dirt. Police called a towing operator to pick up and remove the truck. The driver was fined $110.50 based on an ordinance enacted recently by East Allen Township and endorsed by Upper Nazareth Township. The ordinance states that

Thief hits market five times, Then tries to elude police

On Dec. 30 at 3:45 a.m., Eric W. Thompson, 36, of 1212 Camelot Dr., Easton, was arrested by Colonial Regional Police Department officers after he had left the Wegmans store in Lower Nazareth Township with a shopping cart full of meat. He had been the target of an investigation after he was seen on video surveillance in the earlier morning hours stealing from the store on Dec. 12, 27, 28 and 29. Officers set up a surveillance with a Wegmans loss prevention officer and caught Thompson in the act. After he left the store with the meat on Dec. 30 he ran for his car after he saw officers closing in on him. Thompson pushed the shopping cart into the

front of an unmarked police car, damaging the bumper. He had to be subdued with a taser after he tried to get into his car to escape, and ignored officers’ commands. Thompson was wanted on an outstanding warrant from the Northampton County Sheriff’s Dept. for a probation violation for retail theft. He faces a single count of retail theft as a felony of the third degree. Additional counts of retail theft are pending with a count of criminal mischief for the damage to the police car. Total value of the meat from the Dec. 30 incident was $544.57. Thomas has been arraigned at the Northampton County Central Booking Facility.

truck drivers can be fined in the amount of $100 to $1,000 plus court fees for driving on Township Line Road. Werner Express has a terminal along Chrisphalt Drive in East Allen Township. Unfortunately, GPS units have been directing truck drivers by Township Line Road, often causing traffic delays due to not having space to turn around. Letters were sent out in December to neighboring commercial trucking companies outlining the problem and the new ordinance.

Northampton Borough Council reorganized on Monday, January 2 rather than Tuesday, the 3rd, like most other municipalities. Mayor Thomas Reenock officiated at the swearing in of re-elected councilmen and officers of the Northampton Fire Co. Following an invocation by The Rev. Jerry Mraz, the borough’s police and fire chaplain, the newly elected Councilmen took their oath of office. They include: Keith Piescienski, John Yurish, Edward Pany, and Anthony Lopsonzski, Sr. Then followed the electing of council’s top officers. Re-elected to their positions were Yurish, president, and Councilwoman Sherry L. Neff-Maikits, vice president. Items of business at the start of a new year were then taken care of before officers of the fire department took their oath of office. Depositories of funds were designated, and remain the same as in 2011. Council passed a resolution establishing fees for the filing of applications, permits and licenses for the borough. Borough Manager Gene Zarayko indicated earlier that the fees would be increased slightly, rather than have a tax increase. Another resolution affirmed the re-appointment of Lehigh Engineering as the borough’s engineer, and two

of its employees as sewage enforcement officers. Peter Zarayko was re-appointed to a two-year term on the vacancy board. Anthony Lopsonzski, Sr. was appointed to the Civil Service Commission for a six-year term. Mrs. Maikits was re-appointed to a five-year term on the Board of Health. Duane Filchner was re-appointed to the Northampton Borough Municipal Authority Board for five years. These are the officers of the fire department who were sworn in by Mayor Reenock: Robert Solderich, fire chief; Gregory Morey, Keith Piescienski, and Christopher Greb, assistant chiefs; Michael Brooke, Thomas Kohler, Keith Knoblach, Joshua Abraham, Robert Smale, captains; and Kenneth Hall, fire police captain. In coordination with all other municipalities and school districts in Northampton County, Northampton Borough Council ratified Keystone Collection Group as the agency collecting all earned income taxes. A resident asked how she will know who to pay, and Zarayko responded that bills will be sent out. Concluding Remarks Each of the councilpersons were asked for remarks as the reorganization meeting came to a conclusion. All had wishes for a happy new year, but a few other comments were Continued on page 9

Money & Football The latest eye-opening news about huge sums of money being paid college football coaches was a newspaper study in December. USA TODAY researchers revealed what they had found concerning salaries being paid assistant college football coaches. Earlier in the year Americans were shocked to learn that football coaches at many colleges, mostly in the South, were receiving millions in pay. And more news is the millions paid the staff at Auburn University--over four million dollars! There, the top assistant coach received over a million dollars ($1,309,000 in salary and bonuses, while the head coach received several millions). Revelations of such huge salaries make it clear college football is big business. Football game attendance makes millions for colleges, as we were reminded when news about the scandal at Penn State included the fact that this college was making $50 million dollars a year on its football program. Such profits partly explain why for years serious head concussions suffered by student football players have sometimes been ignored--and permitted. Now at last conferences are taking action to prevent serious concussions. Better late than never.

Letters from our Readers Open Space Is Voluntary To the Editor: You recently published a letter from a Lehigh Township resident who equates the Northampton County Open Space Initiative with socialism. That's an interesting concept except for the fact that inclusion in open space/ farmland preservation programs is voluntary. A land owner fills out an application, if it is approved an appraisal is done, and an offer is made. If the land owner agrees to the offer, he/she receives a sum of money, receives a reduced tax basis, and retains ownership of the land. Essentially he/she has chosen to sell the development rights of the property in order to preserve the land. In some cases land owners have decided to donate their land outright. The writer cites Gracedale as property owned and mismanaged by government. Gracedale, the county home, sits on 358.25 acres, of which 201.88 acres are farmed. It is the facility, not the property, that has been mis-managed.

No system is perfect but I can tell you that when I drive on Rt. 946 just above Rt. 248 I used to see acres and acres of open space and farm fields. Then Charles Tuskes came along and now the view is hundreds of homes in the Creekside and Eagles Landing developments. (Oddly enough, that's Upper Nazareth Township who is raising taxes some 87% citing development as one of the driving forces - but that's a story for another time.) I smile whenever I see a beautiful Northampton County Farmland Preservation sign and also am happy to live in a township where people voted to create and fund an Open Space program.

Opinion Things I Resolve Before It’s Too Late

By Daris Howard I sat holding a beautiful scarf, a Christmas present from many years ago. The magnificence of its interwoven patterns of reds and blacks was particularly amazing because the woman who knitted it for me was blind. Many years ago, as a young man of twenty, I was living far from home in New York at Christmas time. Many of the good people from the church I attended helped ease my homesickness. None did so more than Norma. She was like a mother to me. She often invited me over for dinner after church and treated me like a son. Her home was an interesting study in efficiency, especially with her lack of vision. Her deceased husband had also been blind and, unable to have any children of their own, they had adopted handicapped children that no one else would accept. Each physically handicapped child was paired with a mentally challenged sibling. Together the two became a team - the mentally capable child directing the actions of his or her physically capable brother or sister. She had eight children when I was there. The love that emanated from these children filled the home with a peacefulness that I have seldom felt anywhere else. I would often have a child slip their hand into mine and express their love for me, never fearing that expression as many of us do. As time went on, Norma remarried a good man named Bill and my life took me far away. But at Christmas time, my heart often followed memories back to that humble home. Life overwhelmed me at times and I didn’t keep in touch as much as I should have. Then one day in 1998 I received a phone call. The woman said I didn’t know her, but she was trying to contact a young man who had grown up in the vicinity of Ricks College. She said she had gotten hold of a college student at Ricks College and asked her for a phone number of someone with the last name of Howard she could converse with. The young woman had given her my name, for I was the only such faculty member at the time. The woman asked me if I might have a relative that had lived in Rochester, New York in about 1982. By the time she finished the explanation I had recognized her voice. I said “Norma, it’s me.” I had no sooner said her name than she started to cry. We had a

long, happy visit. It was so good to talk to her again and find out about each of her children. As I vowed I would keep in contact with her, she was very quiet. I sent a Christmas letter every year after that and had written, but I hadn’t heard any more from her, so this year I decided to call. I called just after Thanksgiving and a lady with a southern accent answered. I asked for Norma and she said, “Norma has been daid 8 years, and I’m now Bill’s wife.” I was shocked, for I had never been told. She gave the phone to Bill to visit with me. He told me that Norma died in August of 1998. I learned she had been diagnosed with cancer, and knew she had very little time left when she called me, but had chosen not to reveal it. My heart ached and yet I was happy to know that when she knew she was approaching her final days she took the time to find me so we could visit one last time. As I hung up the phone I was overcome with emotion. I picked up the beautiful scarf and wrapped it around me. The warmth it gave me came more from the memories it brought than the cold it kept out, as I felt as if Norma herself wrapped her arms around me to express her love once again as she had that Christmas in 1982. With that feeling of love came my New Year’s resolution that I too would find those friends who left an indelible mark on my heart before that opportunity was lost forever.

Christian Quarterback Tim Tebow Has Taken Hits for His Faith Off the Field Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network Highlights Faith Stories on Website at

Denver Broncos’ quarterback Tim Tebow hasn’t been shy about his faith since his debut in the NFL in 2010. Now, his team has clinched the AFC West title and a spot in the playoffs—set to begin this weekend—but Tebow has made headlines this season for other reasons. The Tim Tebow story is about more than just football. The 24-year-old Heisman Trophy winner has risen to fame, not only because of the winning record he’s secured since taking over for Kyle Orton after a slow Broncos start in 2011, but because of his strong faith in God and his outspoken defense of a life lived in Jesus Christ. The message sounds simple, but the mainstream media—both sports and otherwise—aren’t taking kindly to it. In fact, Tebow’s success on the football field has been downplayed as lucky or a fluke, giving way to a reverse discrimination. “In a world where professional athletes often make headlines for partying, gun possession, barroom brawls and wife-beating, why are we mocking a young man who is standing strong in his faith?” asks Colin Hanna, president of the Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network (PPN) and Let Freedom Ring. “Tim Tebow is indeed someone to root for, on and off the field.” The Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network recently highlighted an essay on its web site that called into question the vilification of the Christian athlete. “Though originally masked by left-wing sportswriters as professional criticism of a quarterback who lacked suffiContinued on page 5

It’s a new year, believe it or not. Can’t get over how fast the past year went. Let’s hope this is a better one, because a lot of bad things happened in 2011, along with a lot of good things. I reckon we hafta take the good with the bad. One thing I hope is that we have more respect for others, and I think that includes dealing with others on the new computer technology. . . .It was a quiet New Year’s Eve for us, just stayed around the house, had some snacks and drinks and watched TV to see the fireworks. And with New Year’s Day on Sunday, it meant another day off for some businesses. Now we’re back to the old grind, and no holidays to goof off for a while. . . . Mummers parade on Sunday had the best weather ever, with one of the marchers hailing from nearby Schnecksville. Enjoyed the Rose Bowl on Monday, too. Thousands of flowers on all the floats. Beautiful! . . . . Noticed some snow flurries Monday night, part of that lake effect snow that came in across the top of the state. I guess that’s a hint that we should be making sure our

shovels are good and sharp, and the snow blowers will work when we need them. . . . If you like football, this is sure a time to see one game after the other, with all the bowls. Penn State is not the same, but at least they were in one of ‘em. . . .In the pros, the Eagles packed their belongings and are back home after not making the playoffs. The Giants are in, so that will make New York fans happy. I didn’t like Dallas anyhow. . . .That was some outdoor hockey game down at Citizens Bank Park on Monday. The economy may be bad, and there are home foreclosures, but still they packed the house with fans paying anywhere from $300, $400, and up to $10,000 a seat!! That’s mind boggling to me. . . . . Temperatures are way down, but if it warms up over the weekend like the weather folks are saying, I’d say that’s a good time to take down the lights at homes everywhere. There were some mighty fancy ones, thousands of lights . . . . . Have a great weekend. Now we can look forward to Valentine’s Day, and eventually that dreaded IRS tax time.

Grow Your Small Business -- Be Outrageous


This is the first in a series of articles with bullet proof, completely tested ideas for growing your small business. I remember when I coached softball many years ago. I just wanted to be a coach and help kids learn about softball, team work and, most importantly, build character. When I took on the sport, I didn’t realize, I needed umpires, I needed a team mother, I needed to attend meetings and I needed to gather a team to work on the fields. I liken that to running a small business. As an example, let’s take Angela who loves to cook and is really good at it. Will she grow her business simply by the overwhelming aroma of fresh made bread and the wonderful taste of her Italian specialties. Possibly, but probably not. She will build her business by strategically positioning herself in the community, offering outrageous deals and consistently driving people through the doors. The secret to her success is her ability to handle and explore risk not necessarily the taste of her food. You cannot see outrageous growth with-

out risk. If Angela or you are content with middle of the road success and just paying the bills then don’t read the following Top Ten Ways to Grow Your Business Outrageously. 1. Design and implement an outrageous marketing plan 2. Be willing to spend money to make money 3. Hire talent with personality (this is huge for customer service) 4. Create a sense of urgency for your buyer (they can’t live without your product) 5. Teach your customer many reasons why they should shop with you (Valentines Day offer Dinner for Two created by Angela) (Wild Wednesdays with wild discounts) 6. Know your competition - and be outrageously bigger and better (an example of this is the home of the mile high lasagna) 7. Ask your customers what they would like to buy (consider new things on your menu) 8. Reinvent yourself at least every two years (let your customers see new and exciting) 9. Create an atmosphere of outrageous service (so lacking in this world, be known for service, when customers feel great they will purchase and pay for your product) 10. Don’t be afraid of free

(always be willing to do something or give something for free. The world loves that, maybe recipe of the month online, customers can submit their recipes and vote on best recipe win dinner for two once a month) I used an Italian restaurant as an example but this could work for most small businesses. Don’t be the ho hum, run of the mill business in your community. Be the most outrageous in product, ideas and customer service. Wishing you a very prosperous and outrageous New Year .

The two bowl games which are relatively new and which are still not memories for football fans are the Compass Bowl at Birmingham on the 7th and GoDaddy Bowl on the 8th, at Mobile. They follow games at the better known, long history

bowls--Orange, Cotton, Sugar, Gator, and Rose Bowl. Of the two games at these lesser known bowls the prediction is that SMU will edge Pittsburgh on the 7th and that Arizona State will top Northern Illinois on the 8th. That leaves the national championship bowl on the 9th as the last college football event of the 2011 season, LSU again taking on Alabama. This should be another tight defensive battle. LSU must be rated the favorite, with an 11-0 season record. Alabama’s only loss in its 11-1 season was to LSU, in a very close game. Could go either way.



Konkrete Kids fall to Huskies in tourney By Joe Zemba

The Konkrete Kids shot a little under 50% but getting in a hole early against the Dieruff Huskies in the nightcap of the Northampton High School Boys Christmas Tournament cost the Kids who only have one win under Coach Ed Ohlson this winter 70-61. Former Konkrete Kid player Steve Gabryluk is at the helm of the Huskies sleigh, now in his second season and Dieruff is much more disciplined and patient for shots. Coach Gabryluk said "I was happy how we busted out of the Kids fullcourt press. We moved the ball and penetrated gaps." Two starters, Garcia and Howard, were out for the 3-5 Huskies. Raesean Jenkins scored eight points in the first quarter and for a while Dieruff looked like the Connecticut Huskies uptempo. Anthony

Feliciano swished two first period 3-balls. Kyle Huber was the Orange and Black's go-to man in the first half netting 11 of his 14 points as Northampton and Dieruff exchanged leads early until The Huskies got a four-point edge 16-12 after Feliciano stroked two treys in a row from pro distance.The Huskies maintained a 31-26 first half lead. Zach Holubowski (18) had 15 second half points. Kyle Huber and Kyle George found themselves in foul trouble with four fouls each to enter the fourth frame. Northampton went into a 3-man weave and cut the lead to seven, but Louis E. Dieruff got up by 14 points. The Kids cut the lead to ten with 5:39 to play. Kyle George's gamble with four fouls led to a steal and bucket Continued on page 16

Cement Worker Of Month

Rick P. Lattimer

Lehigh Heidelberg, Evansville By ED PANY

Mr. Rick Lattimer was reared in Towanda, Bradford County, graduating from Wyalusing High School in 1964. There he received an excellent education in the Electrical Industrial Arts Program. Rick enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1964 following his father Harold, a World War II Navy veteran and brother, Harold Jr., who served in the Navy during the Cuban missile crisis. Basic training was at the Great Lakes Naval base. He recalls, “There everyone has a change in attitude, ‘Don’t question!’ Just Do It”. Discipline and responsibility are

values that mold one’s character.” He was given additional instruction at Norfolk, VA and Long Beach, California before being assigned to the U.S.S. Preston, a shallow bottom destroyer. He said,“I was a Boiler mate 3rd class working with the ship’s propulsion system and also trained as a 30 cal. machine gunner.” The Preston worked with the swift boats on the rivers and bays of Vietnam. Mr. Lattimer still has some painful memories from the conflict where a number of good friends were lost in action. Every day he laments the lack of respect shown the veterans when they returned

home. After a brief period at home, the young veteran returned to California and became a maintenance manager with the well known Sunkist Company. There he furthered his education earning a Business Management degree in 1976 at Chaffey College in Altoma, CA. His cement career started at the Riverside Cement Co. in California where his experience enabled him to progress from maintenance supervisor to maintenance manager. Rick returned to Wyalusing in 1995 bringing with him an impressive industrial resume. In 1997, Allentown Cement, now Lehigh-Heidelberg in Evansville, offered him a maintenance manager position. He was hired by Dan Harrington, the company president. Today, Mr. Lattimer is the safety coordinator for the plant and their auxiliary operations. He said, “We stress safety and adhere to all OSHA and MSHA standards. These agencies closely monitor plant adherence to all rules and regulations. We are very diligent in operating a safe plant and have input from a 12-member Safety Committee. There is a good relationship with all our employees. They realize a safe plant is a productive plant.” Rich enjoys developing new plans and programs to help everyone at the plant. He works closely with plant manager, Mike Gonzales. Mr. Lattimer has a very positive philosophy and brings that to work each day. He is married to the former Irene Borchardt; they are proud of daughter Tracy and son’s Richard and Ronnie. Rick enjoys golf and hunting His family has an interesting genealogy dating back to Colonial times. The friendly couple reside in Douglasville, Berks County. Mr. Lattimer will soon be retiring. We salute him for his service to our nation. He

It used to be that a person who saved money was a miser-nowadays they are a wonder.


Now that the holidays are over and the weather is not at its best, mid-winter is a great time to get those painting projects done and have your home looking great for spring. This month we’ll give you a few tricks and tips to make your painting jobs easy and successful! #1 – Keep your dip light! Don’t submerge your paint brush more than a third of the way into the paint. Excess paint won’t speed up the process, but it will clog the base of the bristles, making cleanup more difficult and shortening the life of the brush #2 – Keep it clean! Wipe the rim of the paint can with a screwdriver wrapped in a rag. If you have paint in the groove, you won’t be able to seal the top tightly.

noted. Yurish said he will do his best in case there is a “bumpy road” this year. Lopsonzski, Sr. looks forward to “a heck of a better year.” He asked for an audit of the expense sheet for the Borough Authority, but Zarayko said they had one and the next isn’t due until April. Lopsonzski also commended the firefighters and their chief, saying they are among the finest in Pennsylvania, and offered “kudos” to the police department as well, with the hope that the force can have additional officers. Pany thanked past Councilman Mike Bernini for his service and also thanked the voters for electing him. He said he will continue his frugality as he did when he was on Council previously. Lopsonzksi, Jr. offered best wishes. Mrs. Maikits said she’s proud of the fire department, and thanked people for their prayers at the death of her mother-in-law. Mayor Reenock thanked everyone and congratulated the fire officers in their dress uniforms. Robert McHale congratulated the firemen and welcomed them, and offered hope for a good year. He said there are negotiations for health care, and police are working under the old agreement. McHale also noted a step forward was made recently in meeting with Allen Township on a sewer agreement. Zarayko noted that the agreement hasn’t been resolved as yet, and while offering a Merry Christmas to Lithuanians, he concluded that he is nervous about the economy. The next regular meeting will be on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m.

Bible Verse

"A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grevious words stir up anger." 1. Where is this quotation found in the Bible? 2. Who is the author? 3. What is the value of the book? 4. What king helped preserve these words? Answers: 1. Proverbs 15:1. 2. Solomon. 3. Something of a guide for practical living. 4. Hezekiah.

One Sunday a minister asked all in the congregation who wanted to go to Heaven to rise. All but one man rose. Then the minister asked those to stand who wanted to go to Hell. Nobody rose. The puzzled parson looked down at the noncooperator and asked where he wanted to go. “Nowhere,” said the stalwart individual, “I like it here.”

Raising Children with God’s Word God tells us to train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). When it comes to raising children, the tried and true principles of the Bible still work. I recently came across the following advice from the Houston Texas Police department on raising children. I thought it might help a young parent steer clear of making a delinquent of their child. The Making of a Deliquent: 1. Give the child everything he wants. In this way he will grow up to believe the world owes him a living. 2. When he picks up bad words, laugh at them. That will make him think he is amusing. 3. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until he’s twenty-one and then let him decide for himself. 4. Pick up everything he leaves lying about—books, shoes, clothes; do everything for him so that he will be experienced in throwing all responsibility on to others. 5. Quarrel frequently in his presence. In this way he will not be too shocked when the home is broken later. 6. Give the child all the pocket-money he wants. 7. Never let him earn his own. Why should he have things as tough as you had them? 8. Satisfy his every craving for food, drink, and comfort. Denial may lead to harmful frustration. 9. Take his side against neighbors, teachers, policemen. They are all prejudiced against your child. 10. When he gets into serious trouble, apologize for yourself by saying, “I could never do anything with him.” 11. Prepare for a life of grief. You are bound to have it. --Police Department, Houston, Texas

Winter programs at NAPL


January 5-11, 2012

Golden Gleams What is done hastily cannot be done prudently. Wisely, and slow; they stumble that run fast. It’s no use making haste; the thing to do is to set out in time. Fraud and deceit are always in haste. The history of the world is the judge of the world.

He that would know what shall be, must consider what hath been. History, in general, only informs us what bad government is. little more than the register of the crimes, follies and misfortunes of mankind.

Winter programs will be held January 31 through March 22 at the Northampton Area Public Library. Children living in the Northampton Area School District are invited to participate in the following programs; Toddler Storytime, age two, will be held on Tuesdays from 11:00 to 11:20 a.m. or Wednesdays from 10:00 – 10:20 a.m. Creative Preschoolers Storytime, age three and up, will be held on Tuesdays from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. or Wednesdays from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. Family Toddler/Preschool Storytime will be held on Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. The Storycraft program for children in kindergarten, first grade and second grade will be offered on Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. “Read to Sara” is a program for students in kindergarten to sixth grade. Sara is a tail-wagging tutor, eager to hear children read to her. While the program was initially developed for struggling readers, those who can already read well don’t want to pass up the chance to read to a therapy dog. Choose 15 minute time slots on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Registration for the programs will begin in the library on Monday, January 9 at 9:00 a.m. and continue until the sessions are filled. Sessions are filled on a first come, first serve basis. You must have a current library card to register. For more information call 610-262-7537.

If your deer season is winding down and you still haven’t taken that big buck, don’t give up. Here are some things you can try to take that buck of a lifetime at the end of the season. • Don’t hunt where anybody else has hunted. • Don’t hunt at times when everyone else has or is hunting. • Use strategies no one else has tried. • Move your stand to places neither you or anyone else has ever hunted. • Now is also the time to get right into that bedding area you’ve been avoiding all season. It still won’t be easy but trying these tactics could result in the buck you’ve always dreamed about.
