Fire hits Moore Twsp. home A Moore Township family of six persons was displaced Thursday evening, after fire hit their home at 3101 Beersville Rd. Reportedly, the fire started at the rear of the home, owned by Stephen Corby, Sr. and Stephanie Metz. No one was home at the time of the

fire. A neighbor said she saw heavy black smoke coming from the home. Klecknersville Rangers Vol. Fire Co. of Moore Township and the Bath Firefighters responded to the blaze, which heavily damaged the stone home in a wooded area. One firefighter was treated at a lo-

Moore Township Supervisors voted on Wednesday, June 27 to approve the preservation of two lands in the township: the 20-acre John Kostenbader property and the 78-acre Joseph Schiavone property. The decision will cost the township nearly $400,000 of the $1.19 million they currently have in the coffers for farmland preservation. The meeting was well at-

tended by residents of the township who wanted to see both properties preserved, no matter the cost. Almost every one of the 48 residents in attendance took the floor at least one time to talk about the importance of preserving the lands and thwarting future development in their country setting. Jeff Cook, who has walked the entire length of the Appalachian Trail, said that while his experience was great, some parts weren’t as nice as others. “The biggest problem from Georgia to Maine is development, it really took away from the experience” he said. The cost to preserve the Kostenbader farm is $98,000. The township will cover half, or $49,000, with Northampton County’s Open Space picking up the other half. The county had not yet voted on the Shiavone property, the item was

Unlike other school districts, where programs have been cut or reduced, Northampton Area’s educational programs will remain intact, thanks to a cooperative effort between staff and the school board. Many of the 30 job vacancies that will occur during the school year will not be filled. But, like other districts across the state, NASD will have to contribute more to the Public School Employees Retirement System fund, about $1.4 million, or a total of $4.5 million.

Moore supervisors approve preservation of Two properties and residents concur By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News

Property owners in the Northampton Area School District will be paying 1.97% higher taxes in the 2012-13 school year. The school board approved a $86,819,670 budget at their meeting on June 25 that raises the new rate to 46.65 mills, an increase of 0.9 mills. The increase was approved 6-2 with David Gogel and Jean Rundel voting against. The increase means that the average property owner in the district will see a $50 per year tax increase, based on a property assesment of $56,000. One-third of the tax increase will be devoted to paying part of the debt service that comes with the district’s new middle school that will be constructed on for-

tabled at their last meeting. Supervisors of the township were more than willing to approve the preservation of the Shiavone property, but were hoping to have a separate discussion on how to finance it before moving forward with a vote. Based on the response from the residents, Supervisors voted to foot the entire cost of $347,944 to preserve the land. The motion did include an amendment for Wildlands Conservancy Coordinator Kent Baird to continue to seek funding

Andrew Decker and his son Kurt work on the foundation.

Work continues at gazebo Contractors have been working and progress is swift at the site of the future gazebo at Keystone Park in Bath. Workers and volunteers are laying the concrete for the foundation of the gazebo, which will feature a roof and hand washing stations.

Community Project The gazebo, when complete, will be for the entire community to enjoy. Sponsored by the Bath Business & Community Partnership, funds are being acquired through various fundraisers, generous donors and grants.

I hope you all recovered from the second tropical heat wave of the summer season last week. It was a real steamer, with the humidity taking out all the energy of folks. It had an effect on the farmers market, with people just wanting to stay at home with their fans and air conditioners rather than going out and suffering in the heat. We can stand the temperatures, but the humidity is the real killer. Elmira made a pitcher of iced tea and we stayed indoors. It was too hot even for the backyard hammock. . . . East Allen Township had its Summerfest on Saturday, and I hope Chuck Frantz and his committee made out okay, because the humidity was down and there was a breeze, so it

was a lot better. . . . Maybe the heat and humidity got to the supervisors on Thursday, ‘cause they cancelled their meeting. . . . Ye Ed’s daughters and their families must be suffering down in the Atlanta area, where it got up to 99 degrees in the shade and 107 degrees out in the open. That was the REAL temperature, not the heat index. For that, a bottle or two or three of water to keep hydrated is the only answer. . . . Took notice that the corn leaves are tightening up from lack of water. The heat’s got the crop, too, it seems. Scattered thunderstorms were predicted, but so far there’s not been much rain again. . . . The only thing that’s down this year is the Phillies ball team. They can’t win with

their best pitchers, and nothing is going right. From where I sit I think they’ll be cellar dwellers even at the end of the season. Too bad, the fans had such high hopes. . . . I hear the Republican Club is gonna have a sorta boat race down the Monocacy Creek this Saturday. That’s one way to cool off. You know how the BBCP committee has been running plastic ducks down the creek the past couple of years. Well, this time, I hear, it will be boats made out of paper cups and tape that will be racing. They’re gonna have lots of entertainment, food and fun at the club before the race, too, I hear. It oughta be exciting. . . . .Fair goers will have their pick next week, with the Catholic picnic here in town and the Northampton community days fair running practically on the same days. My mouth is drooling for the steamed clams at the picnic. They usta be big favorites with the late P.A.K. from Bath, Pa., and I hear Msgr. Nave likes ‘em, too. Republican Club had their own clambake the other night. . . . . 512 project drags

THE HOME NEWS on and on. It’s a bumpy ride, too. Seems to me they oughta pave all of the lanes when it’s done. . . . Gas prices are in the $3.25- $3.27 range right now. . . .Noticed a couple Model T’s or old-time cars passing through town. Musta been a car show. . . . Well, I hope you enjoyed them fireworks and had a safe and happy holiday. Take care and keep cool if you can. I’m gonna hit the swimming pool!

Bath college student works on Service project in Tanzania

Wilkes University senior Christine Shaneberger of Bath is learning lessons about AIDS policy in Africa as part of a service learning trip to Karagwe, Tanzania. Shaneberger, a political science and international studies major, is spending a month in Tanzania to learn more about the impact of AIDS in the African country. She is the daughter of Jack and Ann Marie Shaneberger. Shaneberger’s trip has included visiting the Nyakahanga Hospital, learning about the AIDS Control Program and visiting the Bweranyange Secondary School, an all-girls

school in Rwanda. The trip, which began June 13, concludes July 13. Shaneberger and fellow student Kirstin Cook are writing about their experience on a blog and posting photos about their experience. Friends and family at home can read more about their experience on the blog www. communityserviceintanzania.

Some of them are nearly at the top of their class because they have such a drive to succeed but their aspirations are limited by their family situations.

For more than a decade, Winkler has spent the summer working in Tanzania with AIDS orphans.

Natural Perspectives For the Health-Minded Individual DR. GLENN CLEARIE DC

Unburden the Body

What can gout, diabetes, hypothyroidism, fatigue, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia have in common? They all can be present in one person!!! The implications of multiple illnesses presenting more often is staggering to me. I believe these compounding disease presentations are from an overburdened body that just can’t take the onslaught anymore. If you suffer with just one of the afflictions mentioned above, could you imagine them all? If you are an otherwise healthy person and are reading this, you must be thinking “poor souls”. What can we do about this? In speaking to my associate, Kim Fallon, on the need to help our community, she made me come to the stark realization that many people really don’t want help even though they express that they do. She’s right! A pattern we often see is when individuals come to realize that they themselves must actively participate in their own health restoration they suddenly aren’t willing to put in the time, effort, or finances to get better. I see this often as once the novelty of chiropractic, nutrition, exercise, eating better, etc., wears off they are quitting and trying the next new thing. The cycle keeps repeating itself and all the while medicine prescriptions pile up and health continues to decline.

To reclaim health we need to unburden the body first and foremost. This means to stop putting into the body the “stuff” that is slowly destroying you. No other way to say it. Unburden now or suffer the consequences later. My clinical experience demonstrates that this first step is the number one reason why patients quit and fail altogether. The vast majority refuse to even consider giving up their potatoes, grains, coffee, soda, fruit, dairy, corn, eggs, Splenda, etc., for a day, never mind a week or the months that may be required. Typically they say they are doing what they should. In reality they’re not. They joke off the seriousness of the situation and very quietly they discontinue care. They’re letting their health slip away as well. Recently I was listening to Dr. Dietriech Klinghardt, MD PhD, who in my opinion is one of the greatest scientific and clinical minds of our time. He loosely stated that the relationship with our patient cannot be like a parent giving their child advice. He is absolutely correct. It has to be a heart to heart, peer to peer, mature adult relationship. It won’t work any other way. The patient MUST be ready to take responsibility and do something about their ailment(s). Clearly, disorders, diseases, and addictions are a chal-

Plenty of baseball action in Northampton County Legion

Bath won a couple games, Nazareth lost one, Northampton lost a pair, and Lehigh Township won one of three in recent action in the Northampton County Legion Baseball League. Bath edged Northampton 7-5 as Jim Bertoletti had two hits and two RBIs, while two hits were also hit by Jake Tone, Ryan Brong and Tom Esparo and they had an RBI each in their 10-hit total. Northampton had 11 hits in the loss, with Zac Edwards getting three along with an RBI, and Preston Koehler doubled in a run. Later, Bath shut out the Birches, 3-0, as Pete Daland threw a four-hitter and struck out 12. Bob Bertoletti went 2-for-3 with a double to help Bath’s cause. Nazareth has had a winning record, but fell to East Stroudsburg, 6-3, with Dan Alicea leading the charge with 2-for-2 and scoring three runs, while pitcher Zach Werner held Nazareth to five hits, but his team only had three hits. Mike Garzillo went 2-for-3 and had an RBI for Nazareth. The Blue & White committed four errors, unusual for the team with a 12-2 record. Northampton’s other loss was to Big Pocono, 10-5. Despite Dave Derkits driving in three runs for Northampton, Big Pocono had Rich Brandes going 4-for-4 with an RBI and Kevin Sensale, 2-for-4 with an RBI. Both teams had 10 hits, but Northampton had four errors to Big Pocono’s one. Roseto ripped Lehigh Township, 8-1, but Lehigh Town-

ship edged Big Porcono, 8-7, and then Kemp Post socked it to Lehigh Township, 16-7. Roseto had doubles by Tom Diguiseppi, Brett Wagner, Pysher, Karasak and Nigito to highlight their attack. A six-run second innings was a factor in Lehigh Township winning over Big Pocono, led by Mark Szoke’s three-run single and Brian Scharnitz going 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Sixteen hits by Kemp Post gave them that many runs as Lehigh Township fell, 16-7. The losers were held to eight hits, with Zack Michael hitting a double and getting an RBI. Kemp Post had more errors than Lehigh Township, 4 to 2, but the hits overcame that poor fielding.

Know The Weather

Does the weather affect our mood because of psychological factors or because of physical factors? The changing weather affects the way we feel in both the real, physical sense, and the psychological. In the first place, changes in the pressure of the air affect us, as does the relative amount of moisture in the air, so that many people feel genuine physical “omens” and “signs” about the weather in advance of a weather change, and during certain periods. The psychological effect is also great. Psychologists have found that some people associate cheerfulness with rain, others link it with bright, sunny skies. Both of these influences must be taken into consideration in appraising the effects on humans which is sometimes great. Generally speaking, of course, most people feel best, physically, when they are under a high pressure area of clear, dry air.

Residents make their Own rain barrels

On Saturday, May 12 The Bertsch-Hokendauqua-Catasauqua Watershed Association members and many residents came out to Indian Trail Park to make their own rain barrels. The association provided all the materi-

als and tools necessary. Rain barrels are great water saving devices and ideal for gardens. The barrel sits underneath a downspout and collects water from rooftops each time it rains. The collected rain water can then be used to water lawn and garden plants. This helps conserve groundwater, utilizes high quality water for plants and decreases water bills. And the rain barrels can be painted with paints that adhere to plastic. The association strives to be the area’s leader and chief advocate for conservation— inspiring residents, businesses and local governments to value their natural resource, engage in conservation practices and work collaboratively with the Association to protect and preserve the area’s natural resources and water quality.

Reports given by Council At workshop meeting By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Members of committees made their reports at the June 28 workshop meeting of Nazareth Borough Council. Before they did, however, a complaint was brought by a resident, who said he has a problem with his neighbor. Mark Stewart said the neighbor’s property is disorderly. The house has been condemned three times, and he noted odors from fecal and urine matter from pets there. “There’s no reason that you have to put up with a situation like that,” said Council-

man Larry Stoudt. Stewart added, “It’s a never ending pattern.” Council advised Stewart to check with the animal control officer, and in the allegation of a child being left home alone, he was advised to call Northampton County Children & Youth. Chief of Police Tracta also commented, “You have a legitimate complaint.” The Reports Stoudt, of the property committee, noted that the small pavilion at the park will be painted in September. He reported that Constance Brown has requested use of the park

Stoudt also noted that Vigilance Hose Co. wants to pay for lights at the big pavilion, with installation to be done by the borough. It would give more light for their carnival, which Stoudt said went very well recently. Councilman Carl Fischl wasn’t present, but chairman Dan Chiavaroli reported for him that the fire company will use their ladder truck on Nazareth Day. Also, the Bushkill Twsp. Fire Co. wants to plant 200 trees around the Nazareth circle for Veterans Day. Frank Maurek, for ecology, announced that there will be a recycling day on Sept. 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nazareth Intermediate School for all county residents. But starting in January it will be illegal to pick up computers. . . . He said the committee discussed the possibility of a regional yard waste recycling facility that would serve Nazareth, Lower Nazareth, Upper Nazareth, Stockertown, and Tatamy. The municipal authority has land that could accommodate it. Two identical bids were received to remove a dead tree and stump along Center St. for $550, Maurek said, so Council planned to flip a coin on Monday at the regular Council meeting to determine who will do the job. Maurek also said the highway superintendent will have trees trimmed that have branches obstructing stop signs.

Homme wins honors On June 11, Franklin L. Homme received a letter from National Headquarters of the D.A.V. awarding him a bronze star for getting new members. At the Disabled American Veterans Department convention on June 1316 he took annual Service Officers Training (renewing his certification). And on June 15, Homme received from D.A.V. Department of PA The Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award. Homme is Commander of

D.A.V. Chapter #7 Lehigh Valley and a member of American Legion Post 367, Fullerton. He volunteers at the following: Miller-Keystone Blood and also gives blood (over 1000 hours-over 31 gals.); V.A. Clinic in Allentown-(over 1000 hours) and Gracedale Nursing Home (over 1000 hours) and has been at St. Luke’s Hospital several months. Franklin finds volunteering arewarding and he enjoys helping people.

Councilman Jack Herbst noted that three part-time police officers will be hired, and also a police secretary. Councilman Charles Donello noted details on a street paving project. Councilman Mike Kopach reviewed the Emergency Policy and Protocol that was established in 2009, and what needs Council approval and what does not. Secretary Paul Kokolus reported $1,308.74 lost in earned income taxes for the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone. Council was expected to approve $750 for the Nazareth Day fireworks sponsored by the fire company.

Mayor Fred Daugherty said $195,000 was spent on workmen’s compensation for police overtime. With an Eagle Scout looking for a project, it was suggested that he could do the signs at the entrance to the park. Council had a number of executive sessions on various issues following the public meeting. The Council building was the focal point of a July 4th celebration yesterday that followed a kazoo parade sponsored by the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce.

Jesus Frees Us From Our Sins Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32 (NIV) When Jesus said this, he was speaking to Jews who believed him. After hearing this statement, the Jews were puzzled because Moses had led them out of slavery. They believed God had already freed them so why is Jesus now telling them, you will be set free? Jesus went on to tell them they should live by what the Father commands; to live by His truth and the truth will set them free. We here in the United States of America have great freedoms although our historic nation has had its share of slavery. Today, most of us believe slavery is something that happened many years ago. Today we are free to do whatever we desire as long as we don’t hurt others. You may have the power to do whatever you want but you are not free. Jesus explained, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (34-36) True freedom comes only by accepting Jesus Christ, who is the truth of God manifest in the flesh. You see, Jesus is the only one who can make us truly free. You may feel you are totally free to do what you want but we all sin and have fallen short of the glory of God. People who indulge in sinful lifestyles experience the slavery of sin today. Go ask any recovering alcoholic or drug addict and they will tell you the urge to use their drug of choice is a cruel slave master. I’m sure you know of people who have become slaves to the desire of money, power, etc. Yes, we are Americans celebrating our Independence Day this week. We are free according to our government documents. But without the power of Jesus to set us free of our sins, we are not free. In order to receive true freedom we must accept God’s Son and be willing to allow God’s Word and love into our lives. We must accept the Truth and that Truth will set us free. America needs Jesus. Only Jesus can set America free. True freedom is freedom from sin. We are blessed to have been given so many freedoms as American citizens. This is still the best nation on earth but true freedom is more than the freedom to practice our religion, to say what we believe, or to gather peacefully. We need Jesus Christ to make our freedom worth living.

Hahn likes budget Continued from page 3

also points us in the right direction by spending less than 2008-09, the last fiscal year impacted by stimulus dollars. “This budget will support one of the core functions of government – education. Schools throughout Pennsylvania, including those in the 138th Legislative District, are funded above 2011-12 levels. Higher education is also level funded for the coming year. “House Republicans fought for and succeeded in significantly addressing the 20 percent cut to human services proposed in February by Governor Tom Corbett. With an additional $84 million added to the $17 million which enables citizens on waiting lists to be served, the pressure on our local county budgets is greatly reduced.”

Timely Warning

You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future.
