The Home News Lehigh Township Home Heavily Damaged by Fire By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
A fire in a Lehigh Township home caused heavy damage on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 10. Two dogs died in the blaze at 498 Mulberry Drive, Walnutport. Eight fire companies were needed to fight the fire, which began sometime after 3 p.m. Lehigh Township Fire Chief Rick Hildebrand said their company was called at 3:12 p.m. The fire was declared under control by 6 p.m., but with a number of flare-ups, the firefighter weren’t able to leave the scene until 12:30
a.m. Friday. The home is reportedly owned by Joel Klotz, and according to the Greater Lehigh Valley American Red Cross, four adults were given aid. Chief Hildebrand said the fire was so intense that the first and second floors collapsed, so that in reality the fire was from attic to the basement of the home. The cause was undetermined as of Friday, but was under investigation by Lehigh Township Fire Marshal Roger Spadt. Continued on page 9
N.A.S.D. Officials Review Draft Budget for 2013-14
By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
Northampton Area Schools Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik and Business Manager Terry Leh on Monday provided an hour-long slide presentation on the working draft budget for the 2013-14 school year. In doing so, they gave an overview of (1) where NASD stands financially and (2) the goals and resources that are all connected, as the mission statement of the school district is carried out. Kovalchik began the presentation listing these goals: • Student achievement at the highest level • The new grades 6 through 8 middle school • Some 20 capital improvement projects throughout the district, including a new HVAC system at George Wolf Elementary School
• Working with Intermediate Unit #20 on cyber education for 107 students • Involvement in the learning process on inline courses • Providing informational programs for parents on topics impacting students • Continuing security/ training meetings with staff, students and parents Leh reviewed all the finances involved, including 64% of the budget devoted to salaries and benefits. Health care is a major factor, and had a $11,200 increase in the past school year. It is expected to go up 9% a year under the new health care act. While the current tax rate is 46.65 mills, it is proposed to
go to 48.24 or a 1.5% increase in 2013-14. So based on average family incomes, the tax bill would go from $2,676 to $2,767. Kovalchik also noted things that the district will focus on, including an expansion of programs in the curriculum; special education (costs may be trimmed by having the children educated here rather than being transported to other areas); technology; and personnel (no new positions, but replacing those who retire). He said that the district has been moving forward the past two years, and has Continued on page 9

OpinionHH Kids Peace a Source for Help By William R. Isemann
President and CEO of KidsPeace
In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, like any tragedy, there are a myriad of questions. How could this happen? What was the perpetrator thinking? What was wrong with him? Could this happen in my community? If children are not safe in school, where are they safe? There are no concrete answers to ease the pain and confusion of such a horrific event. But in the sea of uncertainty, there is one absolute – if we do not change the way the public looks at the mental health industry and insist on adequate
funding for necessary treatment, we will be forced to relive similar acts of violence. It’s too early to say exactly what was wrong with Adam Lanza. Perhaps we will never have an exact diagnosis. But it is evident this was a young man who needed intervention that sadly he did not get. Many people point to gun control as the answer. If perpetrators don’t have access to weapons, innocent lives will be spared. But that is only one piece of the puzzle. People will always find a way to get guns if they are determined enough. Where we can help is by shoring up awareness and funding for mental health treatment. KidsPeace, a national nonprofit based in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, is an expert on mental illness. For 130 years, our specialty has been treating children and adolescents with a wide range of mental, emotional and behavioral health issues.

Mock-Game Show Fundraiser
Our services have expanded with the growing needs of the population we serve. We now operate in 10 states and the District of Columbia. We offer residential treatment, therapeutic foster care, communitybased programs and even a psychiatric hospital because of the acuity of illness in some of the kids entrusted to our care. While most people struggling with mental illness are not violent, treatment is still imperative to give them a chance of becoming productive members of society. Our wide array of services and resources, such as TeenCentral. Net, ParentCentral.Net and our Critical Incident Response Team, put our organization in a position to lend a healing hand and raise awareness of mental health concerns. We are not alone in this struggle. KidsPeace is merely a microcosm of the pressured mental health industry. It is

time for all of society to take a stand, stop being afraid to discuss mental illness and fight for the necessary funding and support to continue to help those in desperate need. We must ensure young people who are at risk are referred to appropriate programs for treatment. We need to continue to bolster programs that combat bullying to prevent someone from feeling so isolated that he could lash out in the community. We need to protect our children from the fallout of future acts of aggression. It is imperative to open the lines of communication now so those who represent us in Washington realize what is at stake if funding continues to be reduced. If we do not invest in mental health today, the costs to our society tomorrow will be staggering.
Letters from our Readers Work to Fund School Resource Officers
To the Editor: In the wake of almost every tragedy in the United States we seem to take certain steps out of the gate, but soon our concerns fade away. Our lives are busy, and families are having difficult enough times just making ends meet. A few weeks after the shooting in Newtown, Conn., I realized that this tragedy was different for me. It’s not going away. Last Friday, I circulated a bill in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives calling on colleagues to help secure funding for resource officers in our elementary schools. So many of Pennsylvania’s schools are facing nightmare budget cuts, and even though school district leaders need and want resource officers, they simply can’t find money in their current budgets. As a parent, as well as a state official, I have listened to testimony ranging from parents groups and teachers, to law enforcement officers and school district administration. The overwhelming concern is concentrated within securing our schools and protecting our children. Over the course of this past week I’ve been inspired by my colleagues from Pennsylvania. In conversations and meetings concerning school security, I’ve forgotten what political party I’m speaking with. Instead, I

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip Saturday and Sunday we were in a fog, and getting around was tough for drivers. They sure needed the white lines at the edge of the highways to see where they were going. Anyhow, the fog lifted on Monday as a cold front moved in. It’s still not all that cold, but it’s colder than last week. Knock on wood, but maybe we’ll have a fairly mild winter again, with not all that much snow. We’ll just hafta wait and see, and look ahead to spring. . . .It was great for the State Farm Show this year, and crowds were bigger than ever, especially over the weekends. . . .I don’t know for sure, but maybe the warm air brought on the flu bug earlier this year. Anyhow, a lotta people have had their aches and pains and all that goes with it for a week or more. Make sure you have your flu shots, just in case. . . . Congrats to Marcia Hahn as she begins another term in the State General Assembly. . . . Congrats, too, to Brian Radcliffe. I saw in last week’s paper that he tied the knot. Good luck and happiness to the newlyweds. . . .And while I’m throwing out the congrats, here’s tipping the hat to Zee Bartholomew as he carries on the tradition that Harry, Randy and Jimmy had before him at the funeral home. 160 years. Wow!! . . . .That Price Is Right event that the folks up
Moorestown way are having at Salem Church oughta be a lotta fun. The show on TV is one of our favorites, and this should be good, too, come January 26th. . . .I wondered why I couldn’t get the WilkesBarre channel on TV anymore. I saw in last week’s paper, too, that the American Broadcasting Company pulled the plug on the cable channels. What a revolting development that is, as Bill Bendix usta say. . . . Man oh man, those were a couple good NFL playoff games on Saturday and Sunday! The Baltimore Ravens beat Peyton Manning and those Denver Broncos, no less. And down in Atlanta the Falcons pulled out a win after the Seattle Seahawks thought they won by a point with a last minute TD. I hear a local lad lost a dinner in a bet with a relative down Georgia way, ‘cause he was sticking for Seattle and thought he won, but before he could celebrate too much, they lost! Too bad, Kevin. . . . Post offices and banks will be closed on Monday, no doubt, for Martin Luther King Day. . . . Dave Lack and Tom Dieter have lots of snow shovels on hand if we happen to get a snowfall. Just thought you’d like to know. . . .Well, Elmira wants to get at me with a game of pinochle, so I’ll close this letter for now. Have a great day and weekend, too. See ya around.

With Flu Season Blood Center Calls for Donors With the flu season now running rampant, Miller-Keystone Blood Center has issued a call for blood donors of all blood types. “Blood supplies traditionally diminish during the winter months. However, it is important to remember that MillerKeystone Blood Center currently serves as the only blood provider to 25 hospitals in our region, and over 500 units of blood are needed each day by patients at these facilities. Therefore, it is imperative for blood that is used today to be replaced today to replenish our community’s blood inventory levels,” says Deb Otto, Director of Telerecruitment. “These blood products are required to care for premature infants, accident or burn victims, surgical patients, or individuals undergoing cancer treatment.” Donating blood is completely safe and easy, and takes less than one hour. In order to donate, individuals must be 17 years of age or older, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in general good health; they must not have donated in the past eight weeks. All donors are also required to
provide valid identification; ID must have the donor’s name printed on it, plus a photo and/ or signature. Individuals can register to donate at: · Allentown: 1255 S. Cedar Crest Boulevard, Suite 1300 · Bethlehem: 1465 Valley Cen-

Local Pastor Dies in Battle
By PEGGY MOSER
Rev. John Rosbrugh, of East Allen Township, died in battle January 1, 1777. He was the husband of Jane (Ralston) Rosbrugh, and the late Sarah Rosbrugh. Rev. Rosbrugh was born in Ireland. He was a graduate of Princeton NJ. In the beginning of his career, he served churches of Northern New Jersey, until moving to Northampton, PA. Rev. Rosbrugh loved being a minister to his congregation in Northampton and at times serving the needs of other eastern PA congregations. Survived by wife Jane, are children Judge James Rosbrugh of Groveland, NY; Letitia Ralston of Northampton; Mary Ralston, Sarah Rosbrugh of NY; John Rosbrugh of Northampton; and granddaughter, Christina Ralston. Services were held at the First Presbyterian Church in Trenton, NJ. He was buried in the parish cemetery. In 1776, with the outbreak of war with the British, the pulpit was the main form of communications of the day. Rev. Rosbrugh stirred his congregation to action against the British. The men of the congregation formed a company of militia and agreed to go to war if Rev. Rosbrugh would lead them. He had expected to accompany them as their chaplain but reluctantly agreed to lead them. Rev. John Rosbrugh took his place at the head of the company and slinging his
musket over his shoulder led the company to join General Washington and the Continental Army in Philadelphia. While in Philadelphia, it was determined that Rev. Rosbrugh would be better suited to take the position of company Chaplain, which he readily accepted. Captain John Hays took his place as company commander. At that time a chaplain, although not provided a uniform, held the rank of major and pay of thirty-three and a half dollars per month. Presbyterian ministers, however, were particularly hated by the British and if captured suffered the cruelest treatments. On arriving in Philadelphia Rev. Rosbrughâ€™s company joined the rest of the Northampton County militia in camp. John Rosbrugh was able to dine with his brotherin-law, John Ralston, a member of the Second Continental Congress. The 3rd Battalion was under the command of General Isa Putnam who had orders to cross the Delaware River on the 25th of December in support of Washingtonâ€™s surprise attack on Trenton; but Putnam decided not to cross due to weather conditions so Rev. Rosbrughâ€™s battalion remained in Philadelphia. After General Washington crossed back to Pennsylvania, with his Hessian prisoners and captured goods, he decided to take Trenton a second time. This time the 3rd
Northampton Militia was included and arrived in time for the second battle of Trenton, also known as the battle of Assinpink Creek, Jan. 2, 1777. The American lines, on the south side of Assunpink Creek, were preparing their positions for the upcoming battle. Rev. John Rosbrugh was dining at a public House when the warning was given that Hessians were coming. Going outside he found his horse had been taken and he was suddenly confronted by a company of Hessians under the command of a British officer. He surrendered but they recognized him as a Presbyterian minister and bayonetted him to death on the spot. His executioners took his watch, money and left his body naked in the snow. Captain Hays, on hearing of the death of his pastor, wrapped the body and quickly buried him where he fell. The next morning, Presbyterian chaplain Rev. George Duffield took the body and reburied him in the graveyard of the first Presbyterian Church of Trenton. His widow, Jane (Ralston) survived him by 32 years, passing away on 27 March 1809. She is buried in Hornerâ€™s Cemetery 4955 Nor-Bath Blvd. in East Allen Township behind the former Presbyterian Church, now Godâ€™sMissionary Church. For information on the Hornerâ€™s Cemetery Historical Society or guided tours, please call Peggy Moser 610837-1757.

Shhh, Don’t Tell Anyone
By CAROL RITTER
Speakers are born or trained? Well, the answer is a little bit of both; some have a natural gift and others can be trained. Shhh, speaking is a performance and performances take lots of preparation and lots of practice. Speaking on behalf of your business can be a wonderful tool for driving more clients, customers, patients, etc. to learn about you and what you do. When preparing a presentation or a training here are some tips for giving an out of this world performance. Shhh, don’t tell anyone, it’s just for you! • Design a speech keeping your audience engaged... and wanting more! • Do your homework, research your audience and have your speech reflect the needs of the audience. • Ask the right questions ahead of time, what is the audience’s age, gender, what do they do for a living, how many will attend • Tell stories, folks learn 45% more if you inject humor • Always send your audience home with hand-outs (maybe even a discount if they visit you business within the next month) • Make sure it’s easy for them to find you after the speech is over, all materials should have your name, phone, email, website etc • When speaking consider the pacing, pausing, volume and the tone of your speech • Always have more material than you need, just in case your timing is off • Think about creating sexy speaking titles (Finding Your Competitive Edge, Extraordinary Sales, Get SOCIAL, Find your Social Media Niche, Sell Yourself First, Sell Your Product Second • Always be prepared to

Southeast Division of PFSC Tackles Many Issues in Outdoors
The Southeast Division of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs met on Sunday at the Bally Fire Co., and as usual they had plenty of issues to discuss. The division includes the counties of Lehigh, Northampton, Berks, Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, Philadelphia and Schuylkill. As mentioned previously in this column, Sunday hunting has been debated. There are bills in the State Legislature about it, but no action taken. The newly appointed Southeast Regional Director for the Pa. Game Commission, Tom Grohol, said that he doesn’t think it will go forward, and feels the PGC is neutral on the issue. It’s no longer a hot topic. Wildlife Education Specialist Dan Lynch said, “If it does happen, there will be changes in lengths of seasons.” Basic Hunter Trapper Education courses are now six hours, and they are also given online, with instructors getting info on what they will teach. Lynch said that surveys have shown that most people look for HTE courses in the fall, even as late as November as big game seasons approach. The PGC requires hunters to wear fluorescent orange, Lynch said, and that’s not faded orange or pink. Also, wearing it is better than paying a $180 fine. A delegate questioned if there is a safety zone on the Appalachian Trail. No, but
while hunting nearby is permitted, jurisdiction is that of Park Rangers and not PGC wildlife conservation officers on the Trail. Bears were very active in the southeast region again this year. WCO’s set traps and handled 56 bears, 19 roadkilled bears, and 2 illegally killed bruins. A report from Bruce Metz showed habitat restoration work continuing at the Palmerton Super Fund site on Game Lands 168 in Northampton County. Areas have been fenced in with a wide variety of seedlings growing. . . .There will be an improve habitat seminar on March 9 at noon by the Schuylkill County Conservancy. This region received 25,650 pheasant cockbirds and 9,750 hens in nine counties, mostly stocked on state game lands and on private lands in the hunter access program. As noted, Lynch is in education and he says school programs are growing. Some of the programs this past year were Wild About Elk, Project Wild, Growing Up Wild, and Wildlife Forensics. Bert Myers at the Middle Creek facility has a full schedule of teacher workshops, school field trips and programs. Turning to Fish & Boat, Alan Moyer of the PFBC announced that Saturday, March 30 will be the regional opening day for 18 counties in the southeast, including all Northampton and Lehigh County streams, and Lizard Creek and Mahoning Creek in Carbon County. Regular opening day otherwise will be Saturday, April 13. Moyer emphasized that the law requiring the wearContinued on page 16

Veterans Benefits Explanation at Traditions, Hanover
Traditions of Hanover Independent Living invites all veterans and their spouses to a free educational Veterans Benefits Assistance Seminar on Wednesday, January 23 at either 1 p.m., 3 p.m. or 6 p.m. Thomas Rutter, Veterans Affairs (VA) Accredited Claims Agent will explain an eldercare benefit offered by VA that can reduce the cost of home care for veterans and their spouses. Roughly one third of all seniors who served in the military during wartime can qualify for this additional monthly income. VA offers a program called the “Improved Pension.” The benefit has three different levels: base, housebound, and aid and attendance. VA has found many veterans are unaware this program exists. The monthly allowance can be used for professional care in the home, independent, residential care or nursing home care for a veteran and their spouse. There are certain qualifications for eligibility. The maximum monthly benefit for a Veteran is $ 1,732 per month and $ 1,113 per month for a surviving spouse. A Veteran with a spouse together could receive a maximum of $2,054 per month. Learn more Continued on page 11

News Sermonette Pastor Edward L. Bean Calvary Evangelical United Methodist Church, Tamaqua
Where Do We Go From Here? Someone made the following observations: The baseball star, Babe Ruth, struck out 2,330 times at bat. In between the strike outs, Ruth hit 714 home runs. Roland Hussey Macy failed over 5 times in business before becoming successful in selling retail clothing and opening his first New York City store. Now Macy Stores are a household name and are in every major metropolitan area in the U.S. The children’s writer, Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss), endured over 23 book publisher rejections on his “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry St., before the 24th publisher accepted it. He went on as “Dr. Seuss” and published over 46 other children’s books. Multiple millions of many of his books have been sold even to this very day. What do these real life stories teach us? Too quickly we allow failure to defeat us. We are prone to give up rather than going forward. We need to learn that failure does not have to be final. The Writer of Psalm 14:1 reminds us: “The fool has said there is no God.” Christians can view life experiences as gifts from God and learn important life lessons. If we follow God’s instructions, even our failures can be viewed as lessons for developing spiritual character. Under God’s direction, life can be an unfolding adventure. There’s an old song entitled “I Did It My Way.” If we insist on being an entity unto ourselves, it isn’t long before we discover doing everything “my way” leads to lots of dead ends. We take on a self-centered shell existence filled with selfishness and devoid of true character. Bill Wilson was a stock broker in New York City. He had a promising future, but alcoholism had enslaved him. He tried unsuccessfully to break this slavish habit only to fall back in defeat. Bill had a friend who experienced the delivering grace of God and shared with Bill about Christ’s salvation. While in the hospital drying out, Bill decided to make the life giving decision of turning his life over to Christ. With Divine help, he learned from his defeat and failure and went on to found Alcoholics Anonymous. In this New Year, let us turn our lives around by not giving up in defeat and despair. Let us reach out to Christ, and follow God’s will as He guides us into a joy filled year. The choice is ours: a fear driven life filled with failure and defeat, or a faith-filled life of adventure with God while following the Bible principles of Christian living.

BOROUGH OF BATH NORTHAMPTON COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA ORDINANCE NO._________ (Duly adopted the ---day of ----------, 2013) AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE OF THE BOROUGH OF BATH, NORTHAMPTON COUNTY, PA AT § 179123 (OVERLAY DISTRICTS); § 179124 (INTENT OF OVERLAY DISTRICTS); § 179170 (OFF STREET PARKING); § 179251B (OFF STREET PARKING AND LOADING – NEW AND EXISTING USES); AND § 179253A (OFF STREET PARKING STANDARDS) TO PERMIT NEW BUSINESS USES AND EXPANSION OF EXISTING USES IN A NEW PARKING OVERLAY DISTRICT WITHOUT A REQUIREMENT FOR ADDITIONAL OFF STREET PARKING WHEREAS, Borough Council of the Borough of Bath has long sought to encourage the development and expansion of business activity within its Commercial Zoning districts; and WHEREAS, Borough Council has determined that the most profound constraint upon business development in the oldest portions of its commercial districts is a series of off-street parking requirements found in the Borough’s Zoning Ordinance which cannot reasonably be met, due to the density of existing structures in the area; and WHEREAS, Borough Council recognizes that the borough is not the only Borough with a densely constructed downtown area plagued with similar issues, and has identified the fact that other communities have lessened downtown parking requirements in acknowledgment of those developmental constraints; and WHEREAS, Borough Council and its Planning Commission have spent several years studying the problem, and now desire to permit the business activity they seek to encourage in the Borough’s core business area to develop and grow without a requirement of providing offstreet parking in addition to that which exists. NOW THEREFORE, BE IT and it is HEREBY ORDAINED that the Zoning Ordinance of the Borough of Bath is amended as follows: § 179123 OVERLAY DISTRICTS is hereby amended to add an additional overlay district as subsections D & E to the said section: § 179123 D PARKING OVERLAY DISTRICT: the defined boundaries of the parking overlay district shall be as follows: ALL OF CHESTNUT STREET ON BOTH SIDES BETWEEN NORTHAMPTON STREET ON THE NORTH AND MAIN STREET ON THE SOUTH ALL OF THE SOUTH SIDE OF MAIN STREET BETWEEN RACE STREET ON THE WEST AND ROHR STREET ON THE EAST ALL OF THE NORTH SIDE OF EAST MAIN STREET FROM JAMES STREET ON THE WEST TO WASHINGTON STREET ON THE EAST ALL OF THE NORTH SIDE OF WEST MAIN STREET FROM AND INCLUDING 111 WEST MAIN STREET ON THE EAST TO THE BRIDGE OVER THE MONOCACY CREEK ON THE WEST ALL OF THE NORTH SIDE OF NORTHAMPTON STREET FROM 103 EAST NORTHAMP-

The purpose of the Parking Overlay District is to relax off street parking requirements in the primary historic business portion of the Borough to encourage the growth and development of business activity therein. § 179170 OFF STREET PARKING is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows: All new uses shall require adequate off street parking, except that additional off street parking for new and expanded business uses in the Parking Overlay District shall not require off street parking beyond that which exists on January 1, 2013. § 179251B NEW AND EXISTING USES is hereby amended with the addition of the language underlined below: B. All uses shall meet the off street parking and loading requirements set forth in this section, except that there shall be no off- street parking requirements for nonresidential uses lawfully existing as of the date of adoption of this Chapter [May 2, 2011] in the CN Zoning District; and further, that there shall be no additional off-street parking required for new and expanded business uses in the Parking Overlay District beyond that which exists on January 1, 2013. § 179253A OFF-STREET PARKING STANDARDS is hereby amended with the addition of the language underlined below: A.

Know The Weather
Most people don’t realize that weather is almost always a moving thing-- and moving much faster than suspected. Weather is caused, mostly, by masses of warmer and colder air roaming around the world and bumping into each other and causing the atmospheric confusion that results in rain and most other weather developments. The most misunderstood characteristic about weather fronts--which we follow as they are marked on the surface in weather maps--is that the front on the earth’s surface is either ahead or be hind the front in the sky. That’s because the leading edge of warm weather fronts slant very steeply, forward. Cold fronts are exactly the opposite, though usually the leading edge of the front doesn’t slant as steeply. Nevertheless, it slants, backward, so that the surface of the earth gets its effect first. Cold fronts are designated by a line with many arrows marking its direction. Warm fronts are designated by a line with half dots on the side of the line showing the warm front’s direction; they’re usually slower moving than cold fronts. PA003267
