Jesus As A Kid

Cancer survivor’s lemonade Stand in Bath this weekend

Ten-year-old Moriah Rieth is a four-year cancer survivor diagnosed in April 2007 with stage IV neuroblastoma. This is International Neuroblastoma Awareness Week and Moriah wanted to once again reach out in the community to help others have the same success she has had. Last year, Moriah held an Alex’s Lemonade Stand event to raise money for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation at the Learn ‘n Play daycare in Bath. The outpouring from the community was overwhelming and almost $1,600 was raised. This year Moriah is doing it again with a bigger goal and more Minions. Moriah and her Minions are hosting an Alex’s Lemonade Stand Extravaganza on Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23. Friday she will be at the Bath Farmers Market at Keystone Park from 3 to 7 p.m. with lemonade and Rita’s Italian Ice donated by the Rita’s in Northampton. Saturday, she and her parents, Amanda

and Eric Reith, will be back at Keystone Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a full day of fun! They’ll not only have lemonade and more Rita’s Italian Ice, but a lot of baked goods. There will be a tricky tray / silent auction for all kinds of fantastic items donated by local businesses such as Crayola, Nazareth Wegmans, Perkins, Friendly’s in Easton, Miller Ace Hardware, Josh Early Candies, and many many more. They have a handmade quilt and a handmade quilted wall hanging to raffle off. There will be a dunk tank with volunteers willing to heckle and tease for the privilege to wind up in the water. In case that’s not enough, the Action Karate demo team will be performing at 1 p.m. and the IronPigs Ironettes will be performing at 11 a.m. Will you help this local childhood cancer survivor help Alex’s Lemonade Stand cure childhood cancer one cup at a time?

“Hometown Nazareth, Where Jesus Was A Kid” is this week’s theme for the vacation Bible school at Christ UCC Church in Bath.

The school, which has been open nightly from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. all this week since Sunday, July 17, will have a closing celebration on Sunday, July 24 at 9:30 a.m. – Home News photo

Bath area student in Japan After gift to American Red Cross By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Nathan Greene of Carol Lane, Bath, a student at Northampton Area Senior High School, is in Japan. But before he departed on Saturday, he presented a check to the American Red Cross amounting to $1,450 for disaster relief in that country. A sophomore when he started raising funds, Greene was selected as one of 30 students and three teachers from across the United States to participate in the 2011 Japan America Watershed Stewardship Project (JAWS) this summer. JAWS is a U.S. – Japan environmental education initiative sponsored by the U.S. State Department. It is a three-part program: virtual exercises that act to orient participants to Japan and water issues; a pre-departure orientation in Washington, D.C., and a three week program in Tokyo and Niigata, Japan; and post-program activities that participants will implement in their communities when they return home. Nathan left for Japan on Saturday as part of a group

$1,450 CHECK is accepted by Sandra Gasper of the American Red Cross from Nathan Greene of Moore Township, to be used for disaster relief in Japan.

Illegal War

For over a hundred days the United States has been bombing selected targets in Libya in northern Africa. President Obama feels the Libyan leader is evil, suppressing freedom and his people--with which most agree. But there are evil rulers in many countries, and always have been. Our policy raises two questions. First, to begin bombing a country the president must get authorization from Congress, under the WarPowers Act (1973). Secondly, what business of ours are events in Libya? Almost none. If Obama is overly concerned with events in Africa (where his father was born) that doesn’t justify military action without the approval of Congress. Nor does it justify killing innocent civilians, as we have been doing. Our action has reduced the importation of oil from Libya, has added more to the national debt and has not brought about the overthrow of the Libyan leader Mummar el-Qaddafi,which we and our NATO allies thought would be prompt. Meanwhile, the need for the nation is to clarify presidential war powers. Obama’s White House legal counsel, who approved of Obama’s bombing of Libya, but who is only a presidential appointee, not confirmed by the Senate, approved of starting the new war. Only Congress has the authority to do that.

Casinos Drawing Young People

Bo Koltnow, WFMZ-TV 69 Reporter Chasing the high is a term many addicted gamblers use to explain why they bet. A bill being kicked around by the Pennsylvania legislature is aimed at preventing gambling addiction. In the early 1980s, Bill Kearney of Montgomery County was a casino high roller, a lifestyle he said cost him millions of dollars. "I never got back my losses because it's impossible," Kearney said. Gambling in Pennsylvania is a multi-billion dollar business, but Kearney, now a consumer protection advocate, said there is no protection for consumers. "When they are sitting at that casino, they can gamble from the day they sit down to the day they drop dead," said Kearney, who added that gamblers are getting younger. Table games are being inundated with younger-than-30 gamblers who Kearney said are caught up in the glamorized high stakes games of poker and blackjack. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said casinos do train employees to spot compulsive gamblers, have a self exclusion program for those who want to stay away, and offer toll-free hotline help. Kearney wants better oversight. By demanding casinos provide monthly statements to reward card members, Kearney said it would save thousands of people from financial ruin by stopping the problem before it becomes one. "How did that $200 become $600? How did that happen? When people realize, 'Wow, we blew a couple of thousand of children's education money, mortgage money,'" it makes a difference," Kearney said. A state bill requiring casinos to do so is expected to be voted on this fall, but casinos have been fighting back, saying it would be too costly and even harm gamblers. "That is blowing smoke," said Pa. Rep. Paul Clymer, R-Bucks County. "They all send out letters to selected patrons. They entice them back with free weekend or meal. So, the fact they send out can include a monthly statement." The bill has died in committee several times before. Statewide, casinos are set to make close to $3 billion this year. Kearney said he is hoping it's not from your wallet.

Opinion Solutions for The “Tax Gap” By Mark W. Hendrickson In 2010, there was a “tax gap”—i.e., the difference between federal taxes owed and those actually paid—of $410– $500 billion. Some of the gap stems from the complexity of the tax code. Much of it, though, is deliberate : self-employed individuals working for cash, tableservers under-reporting tips, taxpayers claiming unauthorized credits and deductions. And don’t forget the highly paid White House, congressional, and federal agency staff (including some at the Internal Revenue Service) who, according to reports last year, collectively underpaid their taxes by tens of millions of dollars. Unpaid taxes are unfair to the millions of taxpayers who pay their full tax obligation. What can be done? Some suggest beefing up the IRS’s budget and manpower. Many oppose this out of concern that an enlarged IRS would be like the Transportation Security Administration, making life miserable for millions of law-abiding citizens. President Obama estimates that increased enforcement would capture 10 percent of the tax gap. That sounds accurate. Completely eliminating the tax gap is no more possible than completely eliminating waste and fraud from Medicare. When systems become as gigantic and convoluted as our tax code and the Medicare system, all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t extirpate fraud, waste, and loss. Since the tax gap is so intractable, we should investigate alternatives to the reflex political “solution” of hiring more government workers. I do not condone breaking the law, but if millions of otherwise law-abiding Americans are defying a law, then maybe something is wrong with the law itself. Millions of Americans despise our tax laws. They believe that taxes are excessive and that the tax regime is arbitrary, discriminatory, and oppressive. One potential reform is to adopt a low, flat tax rate, such as those that Russia and other erstwhile communist countries now have. Low, flat taxes reduce the incentive to cheat. Fewer people risk criminal prosecution for 12 or 15 percent of their income than when 28 percent or more is at stake. In addition to greatly simplifying the tax code (which would also reduce the portion of the tax gap resulting from miscalculations), a flat tax lessens the rebellion fueled by discriminatory progressive taxes. An even more effective way

to eliminate the tax gap would be the appropriately labeled “fair tax,” which would replace all federal taxes on income with a national tax on consumption. The fair tax would restore taxpayer privacy, save the colossal amount of time spent calculating (or miscalculating) one’s tax liability, and would bring the vast underground economy above ground into the taxpaying realm. Either a flat tax or a fair tax would be better than the existing tax code, but the problem underlying the tax gap goes beyond our crazy, convoluted tax code. The fundamental problem is the widespread perception that our political system itself is immoral, dishonest, and corrupt. Is it any wonder that taxpayers are cynical and demoralized when politicians routinely break promises; the government’s own accounting watchdogs refuse to vouch for the accuracy of government’s official budget figures; rich people and businesses with expensive tax attorneys and accountants can legally avoid taxes; and wellfunded, politically-connected special interests get billions in handouts and bailouts from government? Citizens perceive that our democratic process has degenerated into what H.L. Mencken dubbed an“advance auction of stolen goods.” Trillions of dollars per year are

This Week’s

redistributed according to who has power, connections, and lobbyists. American politics has become a neverending donnybrook in which nearly everyone wants the government to make somebody else pay for the benefits they receive. In the moral lawlessness that characterizes a redistributionist state, respect for property rights atrophies. When politicians, intellectuals, clergymen, the media, etc. demagogically denounce “the rich” and have the effrontery to call income that they grudgingly let a taxpayer keep “a tax expenditure,” it is not a good situation for property rights. In this “every man for himself,” “grab what you can get” culture, many individuals will defy the law. The root cause of our elaborate, confusing, costly, maddening, and unfair tax system—and of the tax gap—is our delusional belief that we are entitled to a free lunch and our morally bankrupt insistence that government subsidize our lifestyles with wealth from others. Until we correct those errors and quit worshiping at the altar of Big Government, the tax gap will not go away.

the Fence GabGab OverOver the Fence by Pete G. Ossip by Pete G. Ossip

The farmers market had a perfect Friday weather-wise for a change last week, and now they have lots and lots of summer harvested vegetables and fruits. This is the time to fill up on locally grown, fresh sweet corn and all the other good stuff of summer. . . .Speaking of corn, Mother Nature can be kind, too. Remember that field of corn that was flattened by a storm the 4th of July weekend? Well, the sun came out and all the corn is standing again! It’s hard to believe, but there it is. . . . . I see there’s more face lifting around town. A home down on South Walnut is getting a corner entrance and another has its siding off. Good to see that folks are taking care of their properties, and maybe getting into the historical swing of things. . . .Happy birthday, Earl. Jimmy came out with a cupcake and one lit candle for his birthday, and the gals at T & C sang for him the other day. Maybe they shoulda had that lady do some of her yodeling as a serenade, too. She entertained the cooks. . . . Looking at that picture with the Masons dressed up in Colonial style last week got me to thinking. If they have a 275th anniversary parade in Bath next year, maybe the Masons could do it again on a float. That’s part of history. . . .Bath Legion baseball team’s season is not quite over. They lost out in the county play-

offs, but won one game so far in the tournament at the region level. They did great, so hats off to the players and coaches for a fine year, and we’ll see you back here again next year, whether you win or lose in the regionals. . . . The Phillies are still holding first place, but those Braves aren’t going away and they could catch up and be at the top before you know it. The heat got to Halladay the other night in Chicago. It must be a scorcher playing in conditions like they are right now. . . . With the heat and high humidity this week, I’m sure both the Northampton and Nazareth swimming pools are filled with swimmers. . . . Folks really enjoyed Nazareth Days over the weekend, when the weather was kinda nice. Now those who will be running the Bushkill Township Fire Co. carnival and the picnic over at Holy Family are hoping for the same. . . .Gas prices keep on the rise, but it’s not stopping all the drivers who just love to hit the road. . . . Graduation parties are still going on. Ye Ed tells me that the conservation school is up and running, too, in typical hot weather. One of their leaders will be coming in from Georgia and joining them for a couple days before flying back home for college classes. . . . Make that a double iced tea, Elmira. I’m suffering from heat exhaustion. Phew!!! See ya.

60th birthday!

BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷ The year 2011 has produced several mysteries concerning Major League baseball contenders. One is Boston. The Red Sox began the season losing the first eight of nine games. Then they turned red hot and seemed the best team in the league--passed all competitors and led the league,were especially tough on the New York Yankees. Then they cooled and as of the 4th the

Yankees had recovered their earlier lead. Boston was back on top in mid-July. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Twins have rebounded somewhat and the Cleveland Indians are stronger than expected. In the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies have looked very good, and may be more than a match for the current world champion San Francisco Giants, but only time will tell. The Phillies have perhaps the best starting pitching in the league. Florida was a major flop and the Rays have been strong. In the American Central Detroit looks strong at times but one questions the hitting coach when perhaps the best pitcher in baseball, Justin Verlander, throws a one run game and teammates can’t even score one. He loses 1-0.

Nazareth shuts out Bath to Win third baseball Legion title

Nazareth Legion’s Dan Shepherd threw a five-hit shutout to beat Bath, 2-0, for the 2011 Northampton County American Legion Baseball League championship on Tuesday, July 12. It was the third consecutive title for Nazareth. He was away for the two previous weeks, serving as a camp counselor in the Poconos, and had a fresh arm for this game. Although the Bath team hit the ball good in both games, Nazareth’s defense was a big part of the victories. Bath had lost earlier, 6-0, and with this 2-0 loss, came out as the runner-up this season in the county league. The only consolation for

the locals was that they’d be in the double-elimination Region 2 tournament that began with the first round Saturday in North Wales, near Lansdale, in Montgomery County. Bath (18-7-2) was scheduled to play Berks County league champion, Boyertown (33-9). Nazareth (19-7) played Lehigh Valley League playoff champion, Fullerton (15-8). Other tournament match-ups included: Northern Balley of the Lehigh Valley League (165) vs. Pennridge (15-10) and Schuylkill-Berks champion Southern Area (16-3) vs. NorGlynn (11-13). Action in the tournament was slated to continue through yesterday, July 20.

Region 2 results up to press time are noted below: Bath-Nazareth Game Alex Longernecker pitched well in defeat for Bath, scattering eight hits, but the breaks of the game for Nazareth came in the 3rd inning. Shane Siebler and Ben Schmitt singled with one out, and then Mike Garzillo hit what could have been a sure double play, but the ball took a bad hop over shortstop Jim Sawyer’s head for a run. Two batters later, Kyle Dauscher singled to bring in the second and final run. Longernecker made Shepherd work in the first inning, fouling off pitches until the 10th one was tagged for an infield single. Another break for Nazareth came in the 6th inning. Longernecker hit a double to lead off, but Andreas Haller hit a line drive that found Shepherd’s glove, and he doubled off Longernecker at second to kill the rally. Defense kept Bath from scoring. In Region 2 play, Nazareth won 16-5 over Fullerton and then went on to beat Nor-Gwynn, 3-1, on Sunday. Bath was bombed by powerhouse Boyertown, 15-5, but in the losers’ bracket knocked off Lehigh Valley League regular season champion, Northern Valley, 12-3. In other games, Boyertown beat Pennridge, 8-4, and Fullerton trimmed Southern area, 9-6. The big test for Nazareth was in playing Boyertown on Monday night, while Bath played Nor-Gwynn. In Bath’s win, Alex Longernecker, Andreas Haller and Evan Allman had three hits each among 16 hits for Bath, while on the mound Jason Mitch and two relievers struck out 17 Northern Valley players. Boyertown defeated Nazareth, 8-3, on Monday after rallying for four runs in the 7th inning off Karl Keglovits. Nazareth went on to play Pennridge in the semi-finals. Bath shut out Nor-Glynn, 9-0, but had to take on undefeated Boyertown on Tuesday night.

SCENES as the Conservation School students learned about Nature, native and invasive species from Bill Sweeney and Rick Wiltraut from the Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center. – Home News photos

Junior Conservation School Opens With Busy Week of Activities

While enrollment is down in comparison with the past 29 years, there are still plenty of things to do and learn about for the 18 students as the 30th annual Northampton County Junior Conservation School opened this week of July 17-24. On Sunday, after they got to know each other through the action/socialization experience, they had an evening that was devoted to learning conservation issues, along with a discussion on climate change. Two employees of the Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center for the Pa. Dept. of Conservation & Natural Resources, Bill Sweeney and Rick Wiltraut, kept the students ‘ attention as they related facts about native species and invasive species. They talked about plants, birds, and animals. One of the birds mentioned was the pileated woodpecker, which as fate would have it, actually flew into camp on Sunday.

Sweeney talked about the American Chestnut tree that once had grown to 10 ft. in diameter, but which has been decimated by fungus that came in from Europe in 1804. That is one of the invasive species that has weakened the system of Nature. Deer herds have grown so much that they have eaten up plants and vegetation to an alarming degree. Hunters and the PGC’s deer management plan have trimmed the herd, but still they are plentiful. Natural predators like the grey wolf and mountain lion used to stabilize the deer population, but that isn‘t the case anymore. Sweeney told the students, “Enjoy Nature, but be prepared for such things as deer ticks. Landscape your yards with native species.” He asked the boys and girls about the basic ingredient for plastic. It’s oil. He noted that in China they save a certain amount of recyclables, but the rest is dumped in the ocean. Both Sweeney and Wiltraut had a message for the students: “Make decisions that help the environment. Without a clean Earth, we will have nothing. Reduce our consumption and collect recyclables.” The students also saw slides on climate change shown by a Lafayette College professor. Although based at the 4-H Center in Bushkill Township, the school uses a bus to take them all around the county for hands-on experiences.

You can help people affected by disasters like floods and tornadoes, as well as countless crises at home and around the world, by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support, and other assistance in response to disasters. Locally, donations to the American Red Cross of the Greater Lehigh Valley can be sent to 2200 Ave. A, Bethlehem, PA 18017-2181. P.S.: Nathan arrived in Japan just in time to see firsthand the celebration as the Japanese team won the women’s World Cup Soccer championship. That will be something else he can talk about when he comes home.

chosen as one of the teachers to represent the United States on this trip. This past Wednesday, July 13, Nathan, now a junior in high school, presented a check for $1,450 to Sandra A. Gasper, Development and Community Affairs director for the Red Cross at their office at 2200 Avenue A, Bethlehem. It was an amount he collected after designing and selling T-shirts with the word “HOPE” written in Kanji on the shirts. They were sold throughout the Lehigh Valley. Nathan said that after the horrific 9.0 magnitude earthquake and resultant tsunami hit Japan last March, he looked for a local charity to raise money. He started his own project, selling about 115 shirts at $15 each over a period of a month and a half to raise the funds he gave to the American Red Cross to help with the relief fund for the tsunami victims. Janice Osborne, director of Communications and Marketing at the ARC Bethlehem office, told The Home News that $102,035 has been donated from this area for relief efforts. Ms. Gasper, a Moore Township resident, noted that donations came in fast after an earthquake hit Haiti, but took longer for Japan. As she accepted the check, she said, “On behalf of the American Red Cross and all the people over there (in Japan) thank you for giving back.” Nathan said he has long held an interest in Japan, and loved working Japanese cartoons as a child. He studied the country’s geography, and holds a black belt in karate. It was his love for Japan that inspired him to want to help the tsunami and earthquake victims after the devastating disaster. It killed more than 25,000 people and left many additional thousands homeless. As his final project, Nathan has chosen to work with the Lutheran Academy in Northampton, to teach the students about the Japanese language culture and ecolgy. In the fall, Nathan and the students, working together, will have a Japanese festival for the school. The American Red Cross is backing more than half of the Japanese Red Cross’s $350 million aid program de-

With funding provided by the ARC, more than 36,000 families have already received a set of household appliances, including a washing machine, refrigerator, microwave, rice cooker and hot water dispenser, for their temporary homes. As the temperature rises this summer, electric fans will be considered for distribution. Donations made to the American Red Cross have supported relief efforts in the more than 2,000 evacuation shelters scattered across the devastated coastal communities as well as the Japanese Red Cross medical operation, which has included nearly 600 teams providing professional-level care. In addition, donations are being used to outfit some of the 72,000 pre-fabricated houses planned by the government, which will help an estimated 280,000 people resume normal activities and jump start their recovery. The Japanese Red Cross is focusing on providing physical and mental health assistance to those who have endured long stays in government-run evacuation shelters.

said.

Allen Township’s Board of Supervisors on Thursday voted to dedicate three roads in the Willow Ridge development, which could provide thousands of dollars in liquid fuels money from the state. Atlantic Equity Co. owns the front portion of the development, but residents wanted the township to take over the rest of the roads. Solicitor Lincoln Treadwell said that $4,000 to $5,000 in liquid fuels funds could be realized by doing so. However, while dedicating the roads, it will cost money to pave them, possibly more than the $429,000 that the township has in equity, engineer Brien Kocher said, because while Omega has done some sidewalks the township would need to do the rest. A time extension was requested for revised plans until Sept. 8. At the July 26 Supervisors meeting, the board may adopt an ordinance that calls for a referendum on the Nov. 8 ballot, in which township voters would decide whether or not they wish to pay a one-quarter of one percent tax so that farms could be purchased for open space rather than development. This amounts to 25-cents for every $100 of earned income. If approved, the tax could be repealed later, but then a new referendum would be required, Treadwell

Other Matters • Kocher reported that he would be meeting with the Northampton County Conservation District this week in regard to storm water management at High Meadows. • Reporting on the Northampton County Tax Committee meeting with regard to Act 32, the law which directs the county to collect the earned income taxes in the county after Jan. 1, 2012, Supervisor Al Pierce and Ilene Eckhart said a resolution was requested for passage, but Pierce said it doesn’t comply with the Right to Know law. A letter from the Northampton Area School District listed three options for collection of delinquent / outstanding earned income taxes: turning them over to Keystone; to the municipality, or to a third party. The board voted that they should go to the Keystone Group, which will have the responsibility for collecting all the earned income taxes for the county. • The board voted to replace two doors at the municipal building and maintenance building. • The June report of the Allen Township Vol. Fire Co. showed 73.15 man-hours; 58 training hours; 15 alarms (2 assists to ambulance station, 1 automatic fire alarm, 2 brush fires, 1 carbon monox-

ide detector alarm, 3 dwelling fires, 1 Med-Evac landing, 2 structure fires, 1 traffic control, and 2 wires/pole fires); and $138,500 fire damage.

Role that Indians Played in Civil War Subject at library

An estimated 20,000 Native Americans of various backgrounds participated in the Civil War – for both the Union and Confederate forces. Speaking on the subject Monday night at the Northampton Area Public Library was Allan Messinger, a veteran history teacher in the Allentown School District with 32 years experience. He spoke chiefly of the divided Cherokees, those who stayed in the North Carolina – Georgia area and others who went on a western trail. There were divided loyalties and complex political realities that often pitted Native

American tribes, even family members, against each other. The Lenape Indians, who were the first inhabitants of eastern Pennsylvania, also lived in southern New York, western New Jersey, and parts of Maryland and Delaware. They were respected by William Penn, but his sons forced them from their villages and were cheated of their territory in the famous Walking Purchase. Indians were abused and taken advantage of. The Lenape warriors did serve as guides in the Civil War, and the roles they played in that War Between the States are more fully explained in the book, “Between Two Fires.” Messinger noted many of the Indians who had major roles, and one of them drafted the terms of surrender signed at Appomatox, for he had trained himself in law. Even today, Pennsylvania doesn’t recognize Indian people. There is no Native American Commission, and they have less rights than Spanish speaking people and African Americans.

ment, sales and community spirit. The summer sale days were renamed this year as the Sunflower Stroll, to encourage shoppers to visit the downtown stores and catch deals that only happen once year. In addition, the Nazareth Chamber event brought the community back to the town’s circle to enjoy the afternoon. In the circle guests were treated to a longer than normal farmers market, with fresh fruits vegetables and baked goods the whole family could enjoy. Lehigh Valley Zoo stopped by with a scaled friend, a blood boa, as well as guessing games for the kids. The Nazareth Fire Department brought the ladder truck to the circle and let the kids enjoy tours and even sitting in the driver’s seat as they became honorary firefight-

Northampton C-C Business of year award during IronPigs game

The Northampton Area Chamber of Commerce (NACC), partners of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, announced the “2011 Business of the Year” at its 3rd Annual NACC Iron Pigs Night on Wednesday, June 22. Tony Pristash, NACC president, unveiled the winner, Miller Supply Ace Hardware, selected for outstanding spirit and commitment in contributing to the success and growth of the Chamber, the business community, and the Northampton area. Northampton County Executive John Stoffa presented Dale Miller, with a citation. Marlyn Kissner, Executive V.P., The Chamber, presented Dale with a plaque and other citations, as well as a media package from Regina Luciano of The East Penn Press. Dale and Barbara Miller celebrated the night with staff, family and fellow chamber members while enjoying an evening of baseball. Dale Miller started the business with Paul Kozero back in 1975 as a painting and roofing business on Main Street in Northampton. The business moved to Weaversville in October 1977. Ties with the Ace Hardware franchise took place in 1980 and the business prospered with more and more customers, most of them loyal patrons over two decades. In June of 2000, owner Dale Miller moved his store from Weaversville Road to Route 329 & Savage Road. As the business grew, the challenge was to keep the “small store” feel in the 23,800 square foot facility. Miller and his staff do just that by offering “good down home” customer service. “It’s nothing special, just doing our everyday job and trying to do it well” says Miller. They aim to be customer-friendly and treat everyone like they are guests in their home and make them feel welcome. Miller Supply Ace Hardware stocks something for every customer, from professional contractors to ambitious do-it-yourselfers. You will find a wide range of standard hardware to home-improvement products. Miller is most proud of his 32 employees, some of whom have been working along

side of him for over 30 years! Dale feels the employees really have done so much and he could never have been successful without them. The livelihood of the store depends on the dedication of the employees and the loyalty of their customers, both long time and new.

Camp Invention Children to Power Robotic Creatures

The nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program returns to Nazareth this summer. Created for children entering grades one through six, the exciting Camp Invention program is a weeklong adventure in creativity that immerses its participants in engaging, hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), as well as history and the arts. "We are focused on the STEM subject areas that will help the United States address a critical shortage of scientists and engineers in the global workforce of the 21st century," explains Michael J. Oister, COO for the nonprofit Invent Now, Inc, which operates Camp Invention. "Our programs nurture creative thinking in children, providing them with open-ended opportunities to explore ideas, make mistakes, and reinvent solutions." Each day, July 18-21, children rotate through five integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve realworld challenges. Children learn vital 21st century life skills such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative play. This summer, in the INNOVATE program, children at Nazareth Area Intermediate School will explore alternative energy as they help a mysterious scientist power robotic creatures to life in the Power’d™ module. They will work to understand the importance of economics by rebuilding the marketplace of a disappearing virtual world in the Hatched™ module. In the SMArt: Science, Math & Art™ module children will uncover the beauty of math

DALE MILLER and JOHN STOFFA without numbers as they unearth the surprising connection between soap bubbles, honeycombs, and lightning bolts. By popular demand, all Camp Invention programs include a module in which children participate in highenergy games that challenge their minds and bodies, as well as a renowned invention module, where children upcycle pieces and parts of discarded household appliances and other donated materials to create new machines. Since Camp Invention’s inception in 1990, the program has grown to include over 1,100 school partnerships in 49 states. In 2010, more than

tatiny Ridge to get an ecology lesson and learn the value of air quality. Later, they toured the Chrin landfill, found out how trapping is important, and heard from the Pa. Game Commission. They also got their first water safety instruction as they prepared for the canoe trip down the Delaware River on Wednesday. Tuesday brought them to the Grand Central grassland, and Bear Swamp where they got a lesson on wetlands ecology. And at Minsi Lake they trained in water safety with canoes. No bugle was necessary, but the students were awakened at 5 a.m. Wednesday for the trip to Martins Creek as they accessed the Delaware River. They had a stop at the fish passageways at the confluence of the Lehigh and Delaware River, explained by the Delaware River Shad Fishermen’s Association. After more paddling, they arrived at Wy-Hit-Tuk Park south of Easton, where they had dinner brought in from camp, and spent the night under the stars. Thursday, the students will deposit all the litter they’ve found along the river so that it can be trucked away by the county. There will also be a discussion by the Pa. Fish & Boat Commission and a biodiversity discussion. Jacobsburg Park will be the site for a program by the Conservation District, and then a tour of a local cement plant, and finally on Friday night a buffet supper with their parents and siblings. As a rule, the students make up skits to explain something about what they learned all this week, and the evening concludes with a wildlife rehabilitation program. Saturday morning, the girls and boys will participate in a shooting sports pentathalon at Keystone Rod & Gun Club in Bath, learn later about entomology with Dr. Wilson, be challenged for personal action and commitment to preserving the environment, and enjoy a chicken barbecue dinner complete with potatoes and corn on the cob from Twin Maple Farms in Bath. They’ll also debate the issues and write short essays about them and learn what careers are available. Over the years, these students have gone on to important careers and furthered their knowledge about biology and the environment in college. The students come from Bath, Northampton, Danielsville, Nazareth, Hellertown, Hatfield, Bangor, Albrightsville and Easton, among other places. They include: Daniel Estok, Emma Kozloff, Andrew Schlgel, Dyland Kaiser, Emily Brunell, Matthew Ferraira, Jason Maron, Sydney Thorsen, Ben Clewell, Cory Flyte, Maxwell McCarty, Nicholas Young, Emily Doran, Laszlo Gretzer, Logan Morrell, Emily Albaugh, Casey Edwards, and Sydney Rossetti.
