HHHappy Independence Day!HH Terroristic threats leads To arrest in Bath
A Northampton woman was arrested last week for making terroristic threats and harassing the manager at A-Plus Mini Market in Bath. Cynthia Ann Csaszar, 48, of Hokendauqua Drive, Northampton had reportedly called the A-plus store four times on June 19 inquiring why her motorcycle had been towed from the store proper-
ty. Csaszar continued to call the store, yell profanities and threatened to blow up the store. Colonial Regional Police issued an arrest warrant and Csaszar was arraigned by Judge Capobianco on June 27 on charges of making terroristic threats and harassment. Csaszar was released on $7,500 unsecured bail.

Red Wolf Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting
“I am completely amazed at the progress that is being made over the last 4-5 years.” - Frank Harhart, originally from Bath
By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News
“With the opening of the Red Wolf, the former Bath Hotel, and a few other new businesses opening up in town we’re getting the borough back to the vibrant little borough it once was.” – Robert Fields
“It’s long overdue.” - Nancy Shappelle
Joe Caizzo, joined by his family and a number of borough officials, cut the ribbon and celebrated the grand opening of Red Wolf Bar & Grille in Bath.
After a fire ravished the Bath Hotel in 2005, the community held their collective breath wondering if the historic building was doomed. The hotel sat empty for years after the fire but has been renovated and is now back and beautiful as ever. A large crowd came out last Thursday for the official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration to see for themselves. Owners Angelo and Joe Caizzo worked on the building, a project that lasted approximately five years, to make each detail of the new bar and grille appropriate for the historic building and for the borough of Bath. “The bar has been here for hundreds of years and we hope to be here for another hundred years” Joe said just before cutting the ribbon last Thursday. The opening celebration lasted well into the night on Continued on page 3
Betty Fields and Gigi Kahler stopped by to say hello and celebrate the opening of the new Bar & Grille.

OpinionHH Farmers Market Nutrition Program: Good for Consumers, Good for Farmers By George Greig
Secretary, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture
Pennsylvania’s farmers markets and farm stands are bursting with fresh, local produce and shoppers looking for the perfect fruits and vegetables for their families. Yet for far too many families, this nutritious produce is just out of reach. About 10 percent of Pennsylvanians are at risk for hunger and are only an emergency, missed paycheck or unexpected bill away from not knowing where they’ll get their next meal. Fresh produce may not be a staple of their diets. In a state with a nearly
year-round harvest, this reality is unthinkable. Our farmers produce the food that feeds the world. The Farmers Market Nutrition Program is helping everyone enjoy their harvest. This program provides four $5 vouchers to low-income older adults and participants in the Women, Infant and Children, or WIC, program. The $20 worth of vouchers can be redeemed for fruits and vegetables at participating farmers markets and farm stands from June through November. Tight budgets prevent many people from eating healthy because of the misconception that fast, processed food is cheaper than fresh food. But you can buy a lot of produce for $20 – at least a dozen ears of sweet corn, a head of lettuce, a pint of raspberries, a half-dozen potatoes, a cantaloupe, several zucchini and a quart of green beans. Thanks to the program, each year about 353,000 older adults and WIC participants enjoy

Instead of processed food, they get fresh food that not only tastes better, but is healthier too. Though some consumers may be intimidated by fresh produce, they can get information about preparation, taste and freshness directly from the people who grew it. The program also helps farmers. The producers who participate in the program at more than 1,000 participating farmers markets and farm stands are reimbursed for the produce bought with vouchers. Plus, they’re getting the chance to build relationships with more customers, adding to customer loyalty and repeat business. Pennsylvania is one of only a few states that provides state funding in addition to federal grants for the $7 million program. As a result, more consumers and farmers can benefit. To sign up as a participating producer, contact the department’s Bureau of Food Distribution at 717-772-2693. If you think you might be eligible to receive vouchers, contact your local Area Agency on Aging or WIC agency for additional information, including locations, dates and times of voucher distributions. Vouchers are offered on a firstcome, first-served basis.

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip With all this hot and humid weather we’ve had, I’ve been dragging here of late. Can’t get any energy to do the usual things. `Maybe I need a refresher up in the mountains with cool lake water. Down at the shore it’s pretty hot, too, I reckon. . . . Thursday is the fourth of July, and a firecracker or two going off might get my blood moving. But what else is there when you get to be an old crony? . . . Maybe I oughta go in the kazoo parade over Nazareth way, and play some patriotic songs. That might do it, ‘cause I usually get pepped up when I think of the Grand Old Flag. . . .Nothing more doing as I see it down at the T&C restaurant. That project has been taking forever. Steve must be pulling his hair out, and he still has a few strands. The waitresses thought they’d have some spare time to work in the yard or around the house if it was only three weeks, but still no soap. . . . Congrats to the Legion golfers from town who did okay for themselves in the state tournament. . . . Phillies out hit themselves the other night, and the rest of the time they couldn’t buy a hit. Just that kinda year it’s been, and Charlie Manuel might as well just sit back. They’re not
gonna get any better. . . .Not too much rain lately in the daytime, although we’ve had our share. It rained some last night, just enough to make the grass wet so I can’t mow. . . . Didn’t think about it till I saw stories in the paper, that this week is the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, and our Northampton County soldiers had a big part in it. So many hundred of lives lost. What a pity wars are, and this was among our own people!. . . .I think I’m gonna make this letter short. Can’t get enough pep. Maybe I oughta get a couple doses of Elmira’s tonic. . . .So have a wonderful holiday, folks, and again I say, be careful with those fireworks!!

OpinionHH Supreme Court Overrules Prop 8; DOMA Also Overturned
Traditional marriage took a major blow last Wednesday, as the Supreme Court of the United States announced its decision to reverse the voter-approved Proposition 8 in California, meaning that same-sex marriages will now be recognized in the state. â€œWe are stunned at this decision today to take a 360-degree turn away from the biblical definition of marriage,â€? said Sam Rohrer, president of the Pennsylvania Pastorsâ€™ Network and former Pennsylvania state representative for eighteen years. â€œWhile this decision is a setback to all we have fought for to protect marriage, we must continue to work to keep marriages and families intact, the way God intended them, and pray for a continued revival of the values upon which this country was founded.â€? Proposition 8 was passed by 52 percent of voters in California in 2008, defining marriage between one man and one woman. Two same-sex couples filed a suit challenging the proposition, however, and the case has been in front of the Supreme Court justices since March, 2013. After the recent ruling, language prohibiting same-sex marriage in Californiaâ€™s constitution will be reversed. The Supreme Court also struck down language defining marriage as between one man and one woman in the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 law signed by President Clinton preventing the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. For its decision, SCOTUS considered the case United States v. Windsor, which takes to task the term â€œmarriageâ€? in DOMA, which says that â€œthe word â€˜marriageâ€™ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife,â€? and the term â€œâ€˜spouseâ€™ refers only to a person of the opposite sex.â€?
Today, the Supreme Court found that language to be unconstitutional and therefore reversed the act that defines traditional marriage in America. The Pennsylvania Pastorsâ€™ Network is a group of biblically faithful clergy and church liaisons whose objective is to build a permanent infrastructure of like-minded clergy who affirm the authority of Scripture, take seriously Jesusâ€™ command to be the â€œsalt and lightâ€? to the culture, encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues; examine public policy issues without politicizing their pulpits and engage their congregations in taking part in our political process on a non-partisan basis. The Pennsylvania Pastorsâ€™ Network is a project of Let Freedom Ring, Inc., a 501 c(4) nonprofit organization. For more information about Pennsylvania Pastorsâ€™ Network visit www.papastors.net.
Equality Pennsylvania Responds to Supreme Court Decisions Today, the Supreme Court of the United States issued decisions in two cases involving marriage for gay couples. In the case of U.S. v. Windsor, the Justices ruled the socalled Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the 1993 policy that denies married samesex couples equal protection under the law, unconstitutional. In Hollingsworth v. Perry, the Court dismissed the case, leaving in place a Federal District Court ruling that found Prop 8, Californiaâ€™s ban on marriage for gay couples, unconstitutional. In response to these decisions, Ted Martin, executive director of Equality Pennsylvania, the stateâ€™s leading advocacy organization for gay and transgender people, released the following statement: â€œThe striking down of DOMA brings about a joyous day for loving, married couples and their families. Today, the Supreme Court affirmed that all loving and committed couples who marry deserve equal legal respect and treatment.
College Corner Graduates
Columbia College Neil Lawrence (Larry) Angst graduated from Columbia College, Everett/ Marysville, WA on Saturday, June 8, with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. A Northampton Area Senior High School graduate Class of 1978, he is the son of Neil and Louise Angst of Bath. Eckerd College Eckerd College is pleased to announce the graduation of Abigail Gestl of Bath. One of 530 Eckerd College graduates, Abigail received a BS degree in Marine Science and Biochemistry during commencement ceremonies in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday, May 21. Hofstra University Gordon Bill of Nazareth graduated in May 2013 from Hofstra University with a BA in Psychology . Gordon was among more than 2,000 undergraduate, graduate and law students. The historic ruling on Prop 8 means the swift restoration of the freedom to marry in California. Now same-sex couples can legally marry in 13 states and Washington, DC, and more than 93 million Americans â€“ nearly a third of the population â€“ live in a jurisdiction with marriage for all families. Because of todayâ€™s rulings, all of these families now have access to comprehensive federal and state protections to take care of the ones they love. While this is a day of celebration for legally married same-sex couples, 37 states -including Pennsylvania -- still treat gay and lesbian citizens and their children as unequal and second-class. But work to win the freedom to marry here in the commonwealth will continue. People all across the country, and right here in the Keystone State, are ready for a conversation about marriage. In the months and years ahead, we look forward to talking with our neighbors about why marriage matters to all Pennsylvania families.â€?

News Sermonette Pastor Daniel E. Lundmark Northampton Asembly of God
Surrounded by members of the legislature, Corbett signed the $28.375 billion budget Sunday evening in the Governor's Reception Room.
Governor Corbett Signs Budget, Helping the Neediest Citizens, Families and Small Businesses, Without Raising Taxes Governor Tom Corbett recently signed the 2013-14 budget. Corbett’s third progrowth budget helps our children receive the best education possible, helps those who need it most, and helps employers grow jobs - without raising taxes for working families. “This budget once again provides record levels of state funding for basic education, while meeting our obligations to those in need, ensuring the safety of our citizens and supporting our job creators,’’ Corbett said. For the third consecutive year, Corbett increased funding for education and early childhood development, investing 41 percent of the budget or the most state dollars in the history of Pennsylvania. The budget promises more than $5.5 billion for basic education funding and $1.6 billion for higher education. Corbett also successfully fought for increased funding for people with intellectual disabilities, domestic violence and rape victims, as well as the state’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) helping provide insurance for more of Pennsylvania’s neediest children. Continuing to create a better business climate for Pennsylvania, Corbett’s budget eliminates the inheritance tax on small businesses, similar to last year’s elimination of the family farm inheritance tax. During this administration, the governor’s efforts have helped create more than 110,000 private sector jobs without raising taxes for working families or small businesses. Corbett’s enacted budget focuses on five key areas: education, health and human services, agriculture, public safety and jobs.

Once upon a time, a kite was thrilled as he rose high above the earth. Suddenly he found he could go no farther. His master had quit letting out the string. “Why does he hold me back like this?” he fretted. “If he would only let me loose and give me freedom, I'd show you how high I could go!” While the kite was fretting, the string broke. The kite wavered for a minute, was blown from side to side, then suddenly turned topsy-turvy, and came floating down, unable to right itself. Finally it was swept by the strong wind up against a tree branch and there it hung, all tattered and torn. Its freedom was its ruin! History traces the roots of American freedom to a deep faith in God. Any unbiased study of our heritage confirms this truth, and still today our currency testifies to it, “IN GOD WE TRUST.” But today, many Americans are rejecting God and His moral laws. If our nation rejects God, our fate will be that of the kite's! Freedom from God and His law is the sure road to bondage. This is seen in the history of the nations as well as in areas of personal conduct. Repressive habits form in the absence of submission to God’s moral restraints. Speaking of personal freedom Charles Kingsley said, “There are two freedoms: the false, where man is free to do what he likes; the true, where a man is free to do what he ought.”That false concept of freedom is the prideful expression of self-will which is the very essence of sin defined in 1John 3:4 as “the transgression (disobedience and rejection) of the law.” It says, “I will do what I want—not what God wants,” and it results in bondage such as horrible habits of lust, alcohol, drugs, etc. Jesus said it this way, “Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin” (John 8:34). Jesus Christ came into this world to free man from sin and its bondages. He declared, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me…to preach deliverance to the captives…to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18). Referring to Himself, Jesus said, "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:36). When you accept Jesus as your Savior from sin, you will be “free indeed” because not only will you be free from sin, you will be free from the consequent bondages of sin such as lust, hatred, anger, etc. You will be free to do what you ought! You will be free to serve the Lord! You will joyfully sing, “I’m free from the fear of tomorrow. I’m free from the guilt of the past. I’ve traded my shackles for a glorious song. I’m free, praise the Lord, free at last.”

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie
BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷
In viewing the best hitters in the Major League there are two kinds of hitters with the highest batting averages. One is the hitter with above average talent who hits to achieve the highest batting average. Another is the hitter whose priority is to do at the plate whatever is best for his team to win a game. That sometimes means a sacrifice bunt or whatever is
the best way to drive in a run, other than a hit. Some of the top hitters in the Majors also too often fail to drive in runs when that could be done with a fly ball or a ground ball. They are trying to boost their batting average more than producing a run. This is rare but it is sometimes true, depending on the score. Nothing can be done about this and it’s no major problem. And hitters who are thinking of their average more than producing a run usually do this in games with the outcome already decided. But clutch hitters with a lower batting average than some are fan favorites, should be. Naz. Athletic Director Resigns to be next Assist. Principal at High School

will help users to locate state game lands and other hunting grounds, view topography and aerial photos for tracts, and even find a place to park when they arrive. Those searching for outdoor-recreation opportunities can search by game lands number, county, region or wildlife management unit. Users also can click on any game lands defined on the map to see a more detailed layout of access roads, parking areas and buildings there. The map can also be set to show hunter access points on private lands. Outdoor enthusiasts can customize their own maps and bookmark their favorites, and print them out to use afield or to leave directions for where they’ll be. “The new Mapping Center represents a big upgrade in terms of the quantity and quality of information available,” said Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe. “Anyone interested in spending time on state game lands, or other public-access properties, will find it useful.” A short video on how to use the Mapping Center is available at the www.pgc. state.pa.us, and can be found by clicking on the icon titled
“State Game Lands Mapping Center.” The Mapping Center can be accessed directly at http://pgcmaps.pa.gov/pgcpublicviewer. The Mapping Center was developed in partnership with GeoDecisions. This Mapping Center is part of a larger three-year initiative for the Game Commission to improve GIS mapping for state game lands. “The Mapping Center allows the public to view all the latest information on game lands, as well as locations of hunter access cooperators.” said David B. Gilbert, project manager for GeoDecisions. “The overlay of Wildlife Management Units allows sportsmen to plan their next day in the field.”

By Frank DeRosa Over the last two months, I have received a call almost every day from individuals asking me to take them off of my call list. I have also received calls from someone's son or daughter asking me to stop offering their parents free products as well as someone asking me to ship them free products. Interestingly, I do not use a call list and I do not provide free product but medical alert devices have now become part of a fraudulent business scheme or a SCAM. Scams or cons have been going on forever, but do they target older adults and why do they work? The scammers are quite devious, they pray on older adults probably because they are told that older adults make good targets. Take the medical reports produced by the American Psychological Association for example. The APA revealed in a recent report that older adults are 10 times more likely to remember false information than younger adults, and believe it is true. The combination of not remembering everything correctly and a general unwillingness to admit there is a problem can also make older adults especially vulnerable to scam artists. So what should older adults do to avoid being scammed? First and foremost remember that nothing in life is FREE. If someone offers you a deal that has to be done immediately, forget about it. If someone has a deal for you, ask for it in writing. In addition, my 84 year old mom uses me as an excuse for everything. She tells whoever calls her that her son must review all contracts and offers and she wants their phone number so I can call them. If they refuse to put it in writing or give a phone number, guess what it is probably a scam. Very few things in life have to be done immediately. BE CAEREFUL!

Center for Arts plans Improvements with grant By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
The Nazareth Center for the Arts president appeared before Nazareth Borough Council at their workshop meeting on Thursday. He thanked the officials for their positive efforts. He noted that three grants have been written – one from the Northampton County hotel tax for $10,000, another for $2,500 from the Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce of $2,500, and a third arts grant for documentary movies. Planned are improvements to the Arts building’s doors and carpeting. On July 28 there will be a movie, “Bull Rider,” with the program including steak house barbecue. Concerts are planned on a regular basis and the Center people want to open their building as much as possible for the public. Construction bids were opened and prices and bonds noted from R-III Construction and Lehigh Valley Site Construction. They were turned over to the borough engineer for tabulating. Councilman Larry Stoudt said they want to keep a loan under $5-million at a rate of 2.75%, which will be used for construction of a new swimming pool, a fire truck and handicap ramp. Expected costs would be $3,068,000, and in the end if not all the money is needed, it goes back to Valco. The money must be spent for legitimate approved projects. Public property chairman Frank Maurek said bids will be sought for heating oil in the coming year . . .Plumbing repair work will be done at the borough building. . . .Prices were obtained for a storage trailer, with one at $2,500 recommended to accept . . .Nazareth Day will be celebrated on July 20 and the skate park will close at 3 p.m. . . . .There are 450 baskets at the swimming pool that will be sold at auction. Council President Dan Chiavaroli said it depends on what kind of baskets they are as to what money they can ask for. It was decided to sell them for $20 each on Nazareth Day. Maurek also questioned about any plans to celebrate the borough’s 275th anniversary in 2015. Chiavaroli said it was discussed by economic development and believes someone will run with it. Councilman Charles Donello asked about railing on steps at the park cabin. It will be checked out for safety by the property committee. Councilman Jack Herbst said there will be an update on the website for economic development. There was a discussion about banners on how some have sustained wind damage, and others caused poles to bend. Banners are at the farmers market and memorial type banners are on poles, and others across the
street. Stoudt said the one on Main Street is not visible to traffic on nearby streets, and suggested smaller banners on corners. Donello wants to replace trees that were knocked down by storms, and is checking on prices at a Blandon tree nursery. He said plaques could be placed on each one as memorials. Councilman Mike Kopach said cold patching was done on local streets on Thursday. He also said that the summer help is doing a good job. Mayor Carl Strye said applications have doubled for part-time police officers, and recommended not waiting 30 days to make a decision on whom to hire. There was a question about
residency for a person running for office in a certain ward, whether it pertains to the borough or the ward specified. Solicitor Al Pierce said it is the ward. Mayor Strye noted that cheerleaders want to paint the town blue. . . .Questioned about elderly passengers being dropped off at the cabin, that is okay, but the cars must be parked in the lot. Secretary Paul Kokolus reported four letters received for vacancies. On the summer recreation program, presently there are about 20 short of the necessary 67 to make it payable. Having recreation next to the pool was seen as a way to get better attendance.
Lower Nazareth okays Ag security for farm By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
Lower Nazareth’s Board of Supervisors this past Wednesday held a hearing on agricultural security for land owned by Ned and Linda Hower along Hanoverville Road. When there was no comment from the board or audience, they approved it. Supervisor Robert Kucsan thanked the Howers for donating 49 acres of their land to farmland preservation. Hower then commented that he has another 60 acres that is possible. Township Manager Timm Tenges asked for authorization to purchase new computer software, noting that what the township has now dates back to 1999 and is not compatible with the township’s computer system. He was given authority to purchase software from the Harris Co. of Horsham, Pa., at a
cost of $19,890. Tenges said it is a “tool” for greater efficiency with permits and planning. Tenges also reported that the summer parks program is underway for approximately 160 children. He also said a new drinking fountain was installed at the recreation field. Engineer Al Kortze said an escrow agreement is being worked out with a developer, and reported that a pre-construction meeting was held on the Phillips Feed development. A resident had a problem with ATV’s along Steuben Rd. and was advised to contact Colonial Regional Police.
