School board OKs Community Education Program for year By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Elizabeth Kralick and Presidents’ Deputy Jan Miller hold the $3,000 check for the Blue Star Mothers at a luncheon on Thursday at Point Phillips.

Red Hatters give $3,000 to Blue Star Mothers of America Red Hat Classy Lassies of Greenbriar hosted the Red Hat 15th Annual Birthday Bash Luncheon on April 23 at the Northampton Memorial Community Center. The proceeds from the fundraiser were given to the

The Northampton Area School Board on Monday voted to continue the Community Education Program for the 2013-14 school year. It will again be coordinated by Margaret “Meg” Schell for a stipend of $3,746. There were two options on the agenda – to continue or discontinue the program in the district. Schools Supt. Joseph Kovalchik said the program lost $1,456 last year, but that was a $200 improvement over the previous year. Mrs. Schell was present, and Kovalchik said she did a “fabulous job” with the 2012-13 programs as the coordinator. Director Dr. Michael Baird asked how the money could be made up. Mrs. Schell said there is a really good foundation. Fifteen courses were run last school year and eight were cancelled. She noted that there is a core set of programs that are very popular. People right now have been asking her what is scheduled so they can make plans. Quilting is really big, as are water programs. Others were suggested as possibilies by Director Jennifer Miller. Mrs. Schell said an open mind is necessary and talking with people to see what they want. “The relationship and feedback is amazing,” she said, but keep-

ing programs simple is important. Mrs. Schell said she has two other part-time jobs, but keeps things as straight as much as she can. “It’s a lot easier now,” she said, with a full year under her belt. She had thought of getting students from Whitehall and other nearby areas by putting in an item about the community education program in the newspaper. But she said the core is made up of people who are part of the Northampton Area School District.

She would like to modify the programs a bit. Kovalchik suggested a course for parents on social media. Dr. Baird said if the board would decide to close the program for a year, he fears they would lose the core the program has now. He observed that many senior citizens go to McDonald’s and could be doing something more by enrolling in the community education programs. It was suggested that an open house of the new middle school could provide infor-

The Bechtel Summit Reserve is the new permanent home for the BSA National Jamboree and the 4th BSA high adventure base. The idea for a permanent jamboree came about several years ago. The camp is named after the Bechtel family, one of the reserves greatest donors.

Troop 43 goes To summer camp Troop 43, sponsored by Sacred Heart Church of Bath, completed its annual summer camp by attending the first week (June 23-29) at Camp Minsi in Pocono Summit. This is the 10th straight year they have attended Camp Minsi. Eleven Scouts and four leaders attended the week. Of the 11 Scouts, four were first year campers and participated in the Trails to Adventure Program (TTA.) TTA is a week long program where the Scouts learn many of the basic Scout skills required for early rank advancements. The most popular are Tote-n-chip which allow the Scouts to carry and use pocket knives, saws, hatchets, etc. and Fireman Chit which provides with the skills to start and care for camp fires. This year, once again the troop took advantage of the early check in and arrived at Camp Minsi early on the 23rd when they unpacked, moved into their humble abodes for the week (platform tents) and began to cook lunch. After lunch, they proceeded to the parking area where they met their camp guide, Troop 43 Eagle Scout and Scoutcraft

Director, Josh Halbfoerster, who guided them through the check in process which included a visit to the Health Lodge for review of medical forms, to the dining hall for orientation and the troop photograph and finally to the waterfront for the swim test. All members of the troop successfully completed the swimmer test. Several parents stayed around for the family BBQ that evening. Bikes were plentiful around camp this year and Troop 43 had its fair share of them. In fact, the first camp site improvement was the lashing together of a bike rack. Another improvement was a turnstile gateway lashed together by the senior scouts who also proudly displayed the troop sign, and Troop and American flags. Each morning, the troop site (as well as much of the camp) was awakened at 5:45 a.m. to a rousing “GOOD MORNING TROOP 43” in preparation of attending Frigid Froggy. For those not familiar with this activity, this is where Scouts wake early, hike to the waterfront (and Troop 43 sings songs and loudly greets the Camp Di-

rector and Camp Staff) and ultimately jump into the lake. It has become a tradition with Troop 43 that everyone in camp attends each day. After the quick swim, all head for the showers and Showerfest. Showerfest is the singing of popular camp songs while continuing to adhere to the Scout Law of a Scout being clean. The Scouts earned 25 merit badges which spanned from art to welding (taught by Troop 43 Eagle Scout John Buz) and everything in between as well as several Eagle required like Citizenship in the Community and Communications. Several Scouts spent a majority of their week at the waterfront earning canoeing, small boat sailing and/or rowing merit badges as well as some fun time at open swim and boating. On Friday afternoon, several Scouts put together a kayak float trip and paddled around Lake Stillwater. Two of the Scouts took part in a new program at camp called the Afternoon Adventure where they leave camp Monday afternoon for whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River. The Scouts participated in the various Out Posts offered by the camp like Wilderness Survival and TTA (Trails to Adventure), Tuesday and Wednesday evenings respectively. Wednesday evening was family night for Troop 43 and the Order of the Arrow (OA) Call Out. The Order of the Arrow is Scouting’s camping honor society with membership voted on by the Scouts and the Call out is for

those that have recently been elected. Over a dozen family members and friends of Troop 43 came to camp that evening to eat dinner with the troop and attend the OA Call Out for two of the Scouts, Sam Costenbader and Jared Garcia. Thursday was the camp wide Iron Chef Competition. Troop 43 entered its chicken parmesian over rice, twice baked potatoes and fruit filled crepes. The weather for the most part was warm and dry. The rain that fell during the week was kept to the evenings and didn’t dampen any spirits or postpone any activities. The evening showers did not dampen Troop 43’s evening campfires as the Scouts continued the tradition of evening campfires and a bonfire Friday evening. The evening campfires were a great time for relaxation after hot days but also a time for camaraderie. As a result of Troop 43’s continued practice of the Scout motto, “Be Prepared”, the Friday night campfire that was held in the dining hall due to rain was courtesy of their firewood which had been kept under cover that week. During the closing ceremonies on Saturday, June 29, Troop 43 was presented with numerous awards earned during the week including the Camp Minsi Honor Troop Award, OA Camp Participation Award, top Desert in the Iron Chef Competition, one scout and one leader completed the Mile Swim, highest participation in Frigid Froggy, completed a week of perfect

scores and earned the Clean Campsite Award, one leader earned the sharp shooter award and two Scoutmasters earned their Scoutmaster Merit Badges (Year 4 and 10). All-in-all, the entire troop had another great week at camp. In fact one Scout decided to continue his stay by participating in the Counselor in Training (CIT) program. Could an eleventh year in a row at Camp Minsi be in the future for Troop 43? Only time will tell.

Grow UR Biz – Evil Eye


Just loving vacation time! Someone told me once that if we worked as hard as we do the week before vacation we would be so much more productive. I scrambled all week, cleaned up all my emails, returned every call, finished last minute responsibilities and left for vaca feeling like I’m ready to refresh and forget about everything except fun in the sun. Until we arrived! The first day can be stressful, the heat was oppressive (just like the Lehigh Valley). The place wasn’t cleaned, we were thirsty and hungry and patiently waiting and waiting and waiting. It got to be 3:30pm and we decided to go to my favorite “green cafe” Looking for a thirst quenching smoothie and a small salad, I was greeted by the “EVIL

EYE.” I walked in, stood there waiting. Five servers were sitting at the tables folding napkins, one looked up and shot me the “EYE” again? I stood, looked around and noticed a sign that they close at 4pm. EVIL got up and said, “May I help you?” I was sure I was completely inconveniencing her. I asked to be seated and she said, “We stop table service at 3:30.” We can get you take out if you want.” All said with an attitude.” I decided to leave, thinking this shouldn’t happen on vacation! Next morning, my friends talked me into going back for a fresh “Green Juice.” It’s vacation, I’ll forgive and forget and move on. The waitress came outside to greet us, and she could not have been friendlier and the juice was fabulous. The real question is who is responsible for the flip flop service? One day I get the “EVIL EYE” and the next day over the top service with a

After three months of remodeling, the popular Town & Country Restaurant in Bath opened its doors to the public on Monday morning. Owner Steve Lambrinos said, “It’s our pleasure and

honor to serve the people of Bath and surrounding communities. Thanks to the people for pushing me faster. We did the best we can.” Lambrinos greeted his patrons as they sat down for breakfast in the now very spacious dining area, adorned

with beautiful decor. But he said that even as he opened, there is some stonework and lights that hadn’t yet been completed. He said the restaurant will be serving American cuisine. American and Pennsylvania dishes that people like. The restaurant has a new chef, Leon Amato, whose father Angelo used to operate an Italian restaurant on Northampton Street years ago. “With him we want to make everybody happy,” Lambrinos said as we sat down together Monday afternoon over a cup of coffee. The restaurant has been at its South Walnut Street location for 32 years, and formerly housed the Sunrise Market operated by the late Alex Saras. Besides welcoming everyone with open arms, Steve said he also wants to thank Bath Borough Council for giving him the opportunity to make something better for Bath. “I’m glad the construction is over. Now the work begins.”

Most of his waitresses have returned and there are some new ones. One left to go to the Point Phillips Hotel because of the long months of being out of work. They’re all very cheerful and happy to serve their customers. Lambrinos said he has a new menu and the ingredients for the food are largely from local producers. He does buy his potatoes locally from the Geiger’s and Hunsicker’s year-round, and says he likes to patronize local businesses. He’s looking forward to welcoming back such groups as those from churches, the Lionesses, and the Red Hat Society and others who came there before for breakfast and lunch. Besides Steve, his boys will also be there at the restaurant. It’s a family business.

Nazareth beats Easton for Northampton Cty. Legion title Nazareth is once again the champion of the Northampton County American Legion Baseball League. After beating Easton, 3-0, last Monday, the tables were turned on Tuesday and Easton won the second game in a best-ofthree series, 5-3, at Nazareth Borough Park. Dan Shepherd for Nazareth struck out the side in the top of the first inning, but Easton picked up five runs over the next three innings. Wil Raisner singled to left in the second inning and pitcher John Spadoni walked. Raisner scored when Troy Niden sacrificed and Shepherd threw wildly to first base. A Nazareth error brought in another run. Nazareth had a two-run single in a three-run fourth winning, but Easton won that game two. Game three was a completely one-sided affair as Nazareth scored a big 18-1 victory and the 2013 league championship. Nazareth scored five runs in the 5th inning and nine more in the 6th inning. Before that, Nazareth scored one run in the 1st inning and three in the 4th. They had been seeded seventh in the playoffs, but

prevailed over Bath and Nazareth to win it all. Bath won the championship last year, the only time that Nazareth failed to take all the marbles in five tries. They won in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Over the years, Nazareth has captured the Northampton Legion championship 15 times. Nazareth took its 17-8-2 record into the Region 2 Tournament at Boyertown on Saturday against Lehigh Valley League runner-up Salisbury and won 4-3. All four of Nazareth’s runs were unearned as the result of six Salisbury errors. Nazareth got three runs in the 6th inning and the deciding run in the 9th on another error by Salisbury and a triple by Tanner Buss. At that point it was Nazareth 4-1, but Salisbury scored twice in the 9th inning, coming up short by one run. Nazareth went on to face the winner of the Boyertown-Pottstown game. It was Boyertown who they met. Easton was also in the Region 2 Tournament, but lost 9-6 to Twin Valley in the 11th inning on a bases clearing double, and then lost again to Lehigh County League champion North Parkland.

MADISON OXFORD, one of this year’s junior conservation school students, is shown firing a muzzleloader rifle at Keystone Rod & Gun Club in Bath.

Outdoors Sportsmen Volunteer To Help Teach Safety to Students A number of sportsmen from area rod and gun clubs were on hand Saturday morning at Keystone Rod & gun Club to teach safety to the students attending the 32nd annual Northampton County Junior Conservation School. They are to be commended for taking time out of their day to guide the boys and girls in the proper handling of firearms and archery. Several of the clubs have their own ranges and they always practice safety as well as compete for scores in shooting. Saturday afternoon, the students picked up their pens/pencils and went to work writing letters of thanks to their sponsors and also letters to state officials about how important the environment is. Then in the evening, there was a big chicken barbecue dinner with all the covered dish trimmings that the students, moms and dads, siblings, sponsors, staff and whoever else was there to enjoy at at the 4-H Center. That was followed by some skits the students put together to show a little of what they learned all week. Director Andy Cur-

tis told of the background of the school itself, started almost 33 years ago by George Kreitz from Raubsville, along with this writer, as we felt that education is the way to go if we’re all going to learn conservation. The school ended on Sunday morning with a sun ceremony at Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center, and some tears were shed as the youngsters were to part after a week of working together. As for the staff and counselors, we’ll be meeting the third Friday of every month from now through next June planning the next conservation school. The meetings start at 7 p.m. at East Bath Rod & Gun Club, and if you’re interested in helping, come join us. Also, the search begins now for students at next year’s conservation school, so let us know if you have a boy or girl 14 to 17 years of age in your family or neighborhood who is interested. We’ll sign them up!

Game Commission Recruiting Hunter Education InstructorS

Experienced hunters and trappers are encouraged to share their knowledge. The Pennsylvania Game Commission is looking for ex-

perienced hunters and trappers who are interested in becoming volunteer instructors for the agency’s basic Hunter-Trapper Education (HTE), Successful Bowhunting, Successful Furtaking and the Successful Turkey Hunting courses, as well as future courses under consideration. “Becoming a volunteer instructor for the Game Commission is one way to help new hunters and trappers understand the importance of safety afield and to pass along our outdoors heritage,” said Keith Snyder, Game Commission Hunter Education and Outreach Division chief. “Becoming an instructor also is a fine way to help make a difference in your community and to do something to help improve the quality of our education and safety programs. “If you’re an experienced hunter or trapper, and want to give something back, I encourage you to become a certified instructor for one or all of the agency’s education programs. Quality training is vital to ensuring these new, young hunters and trappers are both safe and responsible.” Persons who wish to beContinued on page 11

Northampton Council Hears report on Envision Lehigh Valley By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Holly Edinger, director of Sustainable Development for the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp., came to Thursday night’s meeting of Northampton Borough Council and spoke about a new program called “Envision Lehigh Valley.” It is a collaboration of several public sector organizations to develop a sustainable community plan for the valley, which has grown by 109,000 people the past ten years. It is expected to grow to another 145,000 by the year 2030, she said. Input from the public will be used to develop five key plans and to develop policy recommendations. The plans include: 1. Lehigh Valley Regional Affordable Housing 2. Regional Sustainable Economic Development 3. Jobs/Housing Balance Study 4. Climate and Energy Conservation 5. Fresh Food Access The five plans will be summarized by the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission for the comprehensive plan and include the new input from public participation, Ms. Edinger said. Council has been meeting

only once a month during the summer and on Thursday had a very light agenda. The officials gave approval to sign an easement agreement and improvements agreement for the Northampton Area School District’s middle school project. They were presented at the school board meeting on Monday night after being reviewed by the borough engineer, David Lear. Council also gave permission for the school district to continue to use the recreation center on Lerchenmiller Drive as a temporary mass shelter facility in the event the schools would have to be evacuated. Permission was given to the Gospel Chapel to use Canal Street Park for a church chili fest on October 5. It was noted that Ed Pany, curator of the Atlas Cement Memorial Museum, has received a $100 donation from James and Helen Roth. Mr. Roth had given a display of cement union badges for the museum recently that his father had accumulated. As a result of an evaluation of the costs of winter services, PennDOT has notified the borough that it will receive $654.68 around November 1, which is a severe winter ad-

Bargain Seekers

Are you super successful or an underachiever when it comes to bargain hunting? We all experience opportunities to cash in on special store sales. We have President’s Day sales, Easter sales, Christmas sales, Senior Day sales, summer time sales and even yard sales! During difficult economic times many households welcome sales and special bargain opportunities. Surprisingly, Jesus shared a story in Matthew 13: 4546 about super successful bargain seekers. Jesus gave an interesting view of human life in this passage. It is about a merchant whose business was to purchase and sell pearls. This merchant discovered a pearl of great price and sold all he had to buy this rare and special treasure. Jesus teaches us important principles in this Scripture passage. First, our lives are short term investments. We have a temporary God given gift of earthly time for our bargain hunting. We need to live each day with the consciousness there is an end of our life journey. Second, we must seek God’s wisdom in how to evaluate true value in our life. Often, we sell ourselves cheaply for life’s trinkets whose values are not lasting. Jesus challenges us to enjoy life, but not to forget God’s goodness and blessings to us. Third, life brings crossroad choices across our pathway. The pearl merchant was wise enough to recognize that the one pearl was worth more than all the others put together. Super successful bargain hunters know to invite Jesus to go with them as they travel through life. God in Christ has an unparalleled destiny for each person who responds to His love. This is God’s world. We are His creation and He is the only One who can rightly fulfill our human needs. Even in the corruption of sin, God’s love, goodness and transforming presence is with us. What a bargain! als and detailed lesson plans are provided by the Game Commission. All new instructors must have attended and completed a class, as a student, within 18 months prior to or after submitting their application. Also, applicants must pass a background check, assist with at least one student-level class and attend a new instructor training workshop before being certified.

Iconic restaurant celebrates 25th anniversary By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News

My Place Pizza Restaurant, a family owned and operated restaurant and pizza shop in Bath, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month. Founded in 1988 by owners Manny and Fiorella Mirabito, My Place Pizza Restaurant serves pizza, pasta, burgers, wraps and so much more, including their infamous soft serve ice cream. They even offer tasty salads and homemade soups! The restaurant opened on July 11, 1988 and currently has a staff of 18, including the owners who are very hands on. Seven days a week you can find Manny in the restaurant, either behind the counter or in the kitchen. Manny knew that in the kitchen was where he wanted to be since his senior year in high school, having thrown his first cheese pizza at Angelo’s Pizza, “I threw a pizza together, and it worked” he said of that first pizza. And the “it” has been working ever since, with the cheese pizza remaining the most popular menu item. The secret behind their success is really no secret at all, “Hard work” is what it

takes, according to Manny. His wife added that it isn't just hard work but “dedication to [his] family and business and to his employees.” She said,“we offer good quality food at reasonable prices” and that, she said, is one of the reasons customers keep coming back. It is also no secret that family is what keeps this restaurant ticking. Manny and Fi have been joined by their two sons Tony and Nicholas over the years as well as other family members who have been on staff. “We are a typical Italian family,” Fi said.“We yell and argue and would do anything for each other, we are very thankful for what we have.”The Mirabito boys each have a menu item in their name. The family setting extends throughout the kitchen and the wait staff. Some of the servers have been there 20 years or more. Some of the staff has worked with the Mirabitos, left and come back again. “We treat our employees like family, and they become like family.” Fi said. My Place is a staple in the community.

enced 5 hour waits for one of the longest zip lines in America, The Big Zip, only one out of every nine scouts will be able to go on it. At the Summit you can also skateboard, ride BMX, mountain bike, mountain board, climb, swim, shoot, and take advantage of the many others activities. Another way to spend your time is to patch trade. All Boy Scouts have different patches that all look different and are each unique. You can trade patches with other Boy Scouts from around the country and world. Some do it to find cool patches and others do it to get the high value patches that they can sell on sites such as E-Bay when they get home. For example the Star Wars patch set is currently going for $500 on E-Bay. At the end of a long day of patch trading and zip lining scouts sleep in their designated camp sites with their troops. Each scout has a tent partner in a two person tent and they each sleep in their own one person cots. The Summit is being considered a revolution in the scouting world. Where scouts from different continents can come together and enjoy scouting and by the looks of it is and will be that way for the generations of scouts to come.
