Lower Nazareth Supervisors Reject Nazareth Police Merger


– Home News photos

Park pavilion Replacement begins Work on replacing the Keystone Park Pavilion began on Monday, June 10. C.E. Ankiewicz of Mountaintop, Pa. is the contractor. The cost of $204, 066.56 is being worked out with FEMA

for reimbursement to the Borough of Bath. Although it must be completed by July 28, Borough Manager Tom Petrucci believes the pavilion will be finished sooner.

Lower Nazareth Supervisors chairman Eric Nagle this past Wednesday read a letter from Nazareth Borough Council president Dan Chiavaroli asking the township’s decision on the borough’s police department merging with the Colonial Regional Police Department. A vote was taken and the

board unanimously rejected the proposal. The consensus among Robert Kucsan, James Pennington, Gerald Green, Martin Boucher, and Nagle was that it would be too risky, mainly because Nazareth police officers have filed lawsuits and grievances against their own department in recent months. Solicitor Gary Asteak was then instructed to send a re-

ply to Chiavaroili saying that the township is not interested because of the history of litigation by Nazareth police officers. Chiavaroli wanted a “yes” or “no” to the proposal that has been in a state of negotiations since the beginning of this year. Apparently, although not confirmed, Chiavaroli also sent similar letters to the Continued on page 10

Take A Book. Return A Book. By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News

Girl Scouts from Troop 8219 of Bath dedicated their Bronze Award Project, a Little Free Library last Friday at Keystone Park. The dedication was for the self-contained book house that the girls built and installed at the park. The library will house books for children and young adults to take and read as they please. According to Nicole Hanna, one of the members of the Girl Scout troop, the “little free library is the largest library network in the world. It was founded on the idea that the free sharing of books creates a sense of connectedness and community.” In addition to dedicating the library, the girls also filled it with books that were donat-

ed by the Northampton Area Public Library. “The concept is simple: take a book, leave a book” said Katlin Beenders of Troop 8219. “There are no due dates, late fees, or library cards required and the doors are open every day of the week,” she said. Jada Johnson and Katelyn Unangst were also part of the award ceremony, as the four girls worked together on the project. Jada noted “There are more than three thousand Little Free Libraries around the world, scattered in all fifty states and some thirty-two countries.” The main objective of the library is to encourage kids to read and like reading. “Kids can keep these books forever, which helps to promote literacy and reading at home,” said

Unangst. Following the dedication, the first book “Gotcha Louie” was borrowed by six year-old Anne Beenders of Bath. The four girls earned the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn for the community service project, the Girl Scout Bronze Award. The award honors girls who demonstrate a commitment to helping others, improving the community and the world and becoming the best she can be. Throughout the process the girls built confidence, met new people and worked as a team. The awards were presented to them by Troop Leader Terri Schmoyer and Co-Leader Larysa Nemeth.

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip Friday will be the first day of summer, and it sure felt like it at the beginning of this week with all that humidity. I don’t know about you, but it drains all the pep out of me. Reckon we’ll just hafta keep a pitcher of iced tea handy all day long, even though a drink of cold water is better for you. . . .Another thing that drains the energy outta me is the way the Phillies are playing, and losing. It’s so frustrating to watch ‘em ground out most of the time. The way they’re playing they couldn’t even beat their Triple A IronPigs. . . . I was glued to the TV watching them and the U.S. Open in golf on Father’s Day, and Elmira tried to comfort me, and that helped some. Probably it woulda been better just to shut the boob tube off and enjoy the day with Elmira and the kids. . . . Ed Pany musta been happy to see the writeup he got for Father’s Day and the way his cement worker column was featured in last week’s paper. . . . It’s good to see that work has started on replacing the Keystone

Park pavilion. It has been a long time since the hurricane wiped it out, but if things go all right maybe we’ll have a new pavilion for the summer. When that’s done it will really be a nice park, with the pagoda and the playground equipment and benches, a nice place to spend some outdoor time with the young’uns. . . . Herb Silfies is back home again, and joining in playing hearts with the gang at the Legion, figuring out who’s gonna get the queen of spades. . . . Now that school’s out, it’s time again for vacation Bible schools at churches around the area. . . . Catholic church picnic is coming up real soon, with lots of good food, games, music and dancing. A couple bags of steamed clams is a must, carrying on the tradition of the late P.A.K. from Bath, Pa. . . . Catherine Hahn’s daughter was in town for a few days. Nice to see her again . . . . Just heard that Barbara Stocker (don’t know her married name) passed away. The Stocker family usta live down on South Walnut Street.

OpinionHH Abortion

By Glenn Mollette Celebrating family on these summer holidays or any day is always a special day. However, all holidays are tough days for many. While millions celebrate others wonder about what might have been. Some have lost a child while others made tragic decisions to end a life. Abortion is sad and heartbreaking. I oppose abortion. I do not believe many people want to go through with an abortion. Over the years I've known many people who have looked back at an abortion with heartbreak and grief.

My first wife and I had a stillborn baby. He would have been our third son. We named him Jesse Caleb. We were told just hours before the delivery was scheduled that there was no heartbeat. The baby would be delivered but he would be dead. I sat for about three hours in the delivery room and held beautiful Jesse Caleb. He looked perfect. However, the umbilical cord had gotten a kink in it, cutting off the oxygen supply and ending his life. At

that time, I had never wept or grieved any harder than I did at the loss of my beautiful child. Losing Jesse made me so very grateful for my two sons Jared and Zachary. Today they are both grown men serving in our military. As I held my child I could never have dreamed of killing him prior to his birth. I do not believe anyone holding a newborn baby would decide Continued on page 13

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

Daily Supplement Essentials

I routinely get asked as to what is the best supplement to take. That of course is a challenge to answer as each person presents with unique needs. Depending on a wide range of factors such as age, gender, occupation, sleep patterns, diet, health status, and more, the response can vary greatly. I can share that from our natural perspective, that a plant based diet rich in phytonutrients, is the best ‘supplement’ you can take. With this being said, I believe there are a few supplements that should be taken daily as a foundation for health and as part of your anti-aging program. The three that come to mind are: multivitamin, fish oil, and mineral supplements. People are always telling me about what a great multivitamin they take. Typically when I share with them that the vitamins that they are taking are actually synthetic and “created� in a lab they start to see that perhaps they were misguided. As a general rule to follow you should be taking Newhole xxus food supplements as your core health program. Pro ducts I have been recommending

Catalyn from Standard Process for almost 16 years now. My wife, my kids and I take it every day. A whole food multivitamin is in my opinion, essential for everyone. Think of a whole food supplement as carrots (vitaminA), mushroom (Vitamin C), wheat germ (Vitamin E), and other healthy food sources compressed into a concentrated pill form. Fish oils are another daily supplement to consider. From heart health, to brain function to anti-inflammatory, the benefits are numerous. How much should we take? I have learned over the years that the answer is not about how much but about how consis-

Funds raised will be used by Troop 50 for activities throughout the year. Boy Scout Troop 50 is sponsored by Salem UCC Church in Moorestown. Jim Chuss is Scoutmaster. tent you are in taking it. Fish oil does no good for your body sitting in the bottle. Again, my family and I take it routinely, consistently. We have since before we had children. I suspect I will be giving it to my grandchildren as well. A good mineral supplement can go a long way in helping our bodies in this nutrient void world we live in. Fast foods are completely depleted of life enhancing nutrients and minerals are the first to be stripped. So in this regard, mineral supplementation is a good idea. Iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, magnesium are just a few to consider. The easiest way to remember to take these daily health general fundamentals is to get them in a one a day pack where as these top three are together in a single serve ready package. Of course, I recommend Standard Process above all others. The reasons Continued on page 13 PA003267

Grow Ur Biz in 2013 – The Little Guy


So many times we forget about “The Little Guy,” amazingly loyal, consistently present but he or she doesn’t necessarily bring in a lot of cash flow. Last week I met with a new friend/colleague. As I listened, he taught me about his business and the services he provides. There was one thing he said that resonated with me, it’s something that you rarely hear coming from a business owner. He stated that he is HONORED to have the trust and loyalty of his customers. HONORED? So many times we are honored to be in someone’s presence, or we are honored to be recognized but I’ve never heard anyone say they are honored that their customers trust them. I decided to look up the word. Webster’s says it means a good name or public esteem or the showing of merited respect. Well, now it makes sense. Merited respect, earned not assumed is

just one part of growing your business but one big part. He then talked about his “BIG” clients and the smaller ones. Interestingly, both were valued on the same level even though “The Little Guy” doesn’t bring in as much of the bacon. Small businesses cannot rely on one, two or three, “BIG” customers. The risk is incredibly high and when you lose one, maybe even through no fault of your own, it hurts badly. Here’s what “The Little Guy” means to your business.... • Figure out how many “little guys” you need to equal the “BIG” customer revenue • The word of mouth epidemic you are creating is very dependent on “the Little Guy” • There’s a chance “the Little Guy” will become a “Big Guy” someday • “The Little Guy” may be someone who can help you via advice, exchanges or possibly referrals If you want to Grow Ur Biz, merited respect for all who walk through the door is not

Have you heard What all the Howling is about?

There's been a lot of commotion in Bath this past month, as Red Wolf Bar and Grille finally opened its doors in the beginning of May in the historic Bath Hotel. Owners Joe and Angelo Caiazzo, who bought the property in 2007, finally finished the six year renovation of the old hotel culminating in the re-launch of its first floor bar and grille. Thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful community- the owners are happy to be a part of Bath's revitalization, offering the people of the town and the Valley at large a comfortable place to eat, drink and be merry. Whether you have a hankering for their newly infamous drunken chicken parm sandwich or one of their signature cocktails, the food and libations are delicious and even locally sourced when possible. "We reached out to our local farmers when we first opened in hopes of using their produce once it became available. For instance, we can't wait for potato season to use local Bath potatoes for our fresh cut fries" said Yuri Laubach, Manager at the Red Wolf Bar and Grille. They also utilize the Bath Farmers Market, concocting a number of cocktails around seasonal ingredients, like their strawberry rhubarb cooler and strawberry basil martini! Next Thursday, June 27th the Red Wolf will celebrate with a grand opening and ribbon cutting that will begin at 5 p.m. The ribbon cutting will be followed by the Final Thursday celebration that is taking place at businesses

Red Wolf Bar & Grille opened earlier this year. –-Contributed photo throughout the borough. Stop by and celebrate, stick around for a drink and take a walk around Bath – many businesses will be open late, offering once a month specials. Red Wolf is also a proud member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Com-

merce and is pleased to be among the ranks of some of the area’s most influential businesses. So the next time you are in Bath or cutting through town, why not stop in for a bite and drink at the Red Wolf Bar and Grille- and finally see what all the howling is a about!

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie

Bad Custom✷ ✷ ✷

One of the dumbest customs continued in U.S. sports is the custom of dousing a manager or player who has won something with a bucket of water. What sense does that make? None. Especially when the day is not a hot one and a coach in normal attire is hit with a large container of ice-cold water, this could result in a cold or worse. The victim

must wait until inside to get out of his wet clothes. In the meantime he is soaking wet in wind and often a low temperature. Why can’t baseball and football do something to stop this? Throwing water on a coach could produce a fine of several thousand dollars. That would do much to end this stupidity. Baseball is also the only sport which doesn’t correct the many mistaken umpire calls on balls and strikes, which could easily be done with today’s modern technology at the plate. The umpire could use this monitoring and never be guilty of an injustice to the batter or pitcher.

Nazareth High School junior Takes Milwaukee 100 race He had the pole position, was passed on the first lap, but kept his cool and won the Milwaukee 100 on Saturday. Who was the driver? None other than Sage Karam, age 18, of Bushkill Township, who just completed his junior year at Nazareth Area High School. Karam, driving the No. 8 Schmidt Peterson with CurbAgajanian car, passed on the 57th lap the car that got a jump start on him driven by Zach Veach, and edged champion points leader Carlos Munoz by just 1.0808 seconds

Outdoors Pennsylvania Hunting Licenses Now On Sale

It’s that time again. Hunting and furtaker licenses for Pennsylvania’s 2013-14 seasons went on sale Monday, June 10. And once again in the 201314 license year, all license fees remain unchanged since 1999. Licenses can be purchased online through the Pennsylvania Automated License System (PALS) website, https:// Licenses also can be purchased over the counter at all Game Commission region offices and the Harrisburg headquarters, as well as through more than 600 in-state and out-of-state issuing agents. A list of issuing agents is available at the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.

at the finish line. It was Karam’s first career Firestone Indy Lights victory and came on the one-mile track at West Allis, Wisconsin. Munoz had caught Veach on lap 64, and was closing in on Karam at lap 95, but Karam shoved the pedal to the medal on the re-start after a caution and beat Munoz for the checkered flag. Veach was driving for Andretti Autosport. The series continues this week at Iowa Speedway and then on to Pocono Raceway on July 7. The 2013-14 hunting and furtaker licenses are effective July 1, when the licenses that now are valid expire. The new licenses are valid through June 30, 2014. The launch of license sales for the upcoming seasons also serves as a reminder for Pennsylvania hunters who hold senior lifetime hunting or furtaker licenses, or combinations of those licenses. While those hunters need not pay a license or transaction fee, they must pick up new licenses and harvest tags. Licenses purchased through PALS are subject to a 70-cent transaction fee for each license or permit, and that fee is paid directly to the Nashville-based company that runs PALS. Through PALS, hunters can purchase not only their general hunting and furtaker licenses, but add-on licenses needed for archery or muzzleloader hunting, specialty licenses to hunt bears or set out after second spring gobbler, permits to hunt and trap bobcats and fishers, and more. In short, what can be purchased from an issuing agent,

Hunters also can use PALS to apply for the elk-license drawing or purchase Deer Management Assistance Program permits. Many specialty licenses or permits have application or purchase deadlines, or launch dates for sales. Fast approaching is the launch date for the sale of antlerless deer licenses. Applications for antlerless deer

licenses must be sent by mail using official pink envelopes available from issuing agents or Game Commission offices. County treasurers statewide on July 8 will begin accepting antlerless license applications from Pennsylvania residents. Nonresidents can apply starting July 29. Beginning Aug. 5, treasurers will begin selling the remaining unsold licenses for any wildlife-management unit for which licenses remain available. A second round of unsold license sales will begin Aug. 19. Except in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 2B, 5C and 5D, hunters may only apply for one license during each application period. In those WMUs, hunters may apply for an unlimited number of licenses, however, the longstanding tradition of limiting applications to three per envelope remains in place for all applicants. Over-the-counter antlerless license sales in WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D begin Aug. 26. Meanwhile, the deadline to apply for a 2013 elk license is Aug. 25. Those wishing to hunt bears during the early seasons must purchase licenses

State Trap Shooting competition were Tyler Van Blargan, who won the Junior Gold; Dennis Cacciola, Tammy Van Blargan Hansel, Jim Gontar, Kenneth Kern, Corena and Brandon Doorly, Lee Marsh, Tim Manning, Harry Gochenhauer, Roger Muschlitz, Richard Hildenbrand, and Ron Keppel.

by Nov. 22, with bear licenses going back on sale from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. The deadline to purchase a bobcat or fisher permit is Dec. 20. And those wishing to purchase a second spring gobbler license must do so by May 2, 2014. Harvest permits through the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) will be available for sale beginning June 10, but hunters should be advised that permits for some properties might not become available until after that date. DMAP permits will be available once landowner applications are approved and landowners are notified by the Game Commission. If permits for a particular DMAP unit have not gone on sale, hunters can continue to check back until sales begin. Hunters purchasing their licenses early also might not be able immediately to get a copy of the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digestregulations booklet. Some issuing agents won’t receive the booklets until late June. A complete version of the publication is posted on the agency’s website. And hunters who don’t receive a printed copy of the booklet initially may return to the issuing agent and pick one up after the booklets are delivered.

Either Way

The trouble with success these days is that its recipe is just about the same as that for a nervous breakdown.

Republican Committee Reorganization At a meeting on June 11, of the full committee of the Northampton County Republican Committee, held at the Chrin Center in Palmer Township, Craig L. DeFranco was elected Chairman and Gloria Lee Snover was elected Vice-Chairwoman. Both will finish the terms of their predecessors which expire in June 2014. On March 28, DeFranco was elected at a special meeting to Vice-Chair due to the resignation of Thomas Carroll who left to seek the nomination for County judge. On April 17, former Chairman Robert Kerr resigned and DeFranco assumed acting chairman duties until the election on June 11.

Mr. DeFranco vowed to work with all committee people toward electing Republicans to public office and encouraged all to put aside personal differences for the betterment of the Party. “I understand there will be differences among the committee people but these differences must be discussed in an orderly, civil manner to move the committee toward the goal of electing Republicans.” “With this election, we can now move forward with certainty in the Chairman’s position and focus our attention to electing Republicans to public office”, DeFranco said. DeFranco was challenged by William Spanogle of Bethlehem Township. Lee Snover, a 25 year veteran in the county committee and elected member of the Pennsylvania State Committee, was not challenged in her bid for the Vice Chair position. She cited fondly the mentoring she received from the late Charlie Roberts and vowed to lead by example in creating a Republican electoral machine. “Though my ideology is rooted in social and fiscal conservative issues, I’m not for alienating those more moderate than I in the Republican Party. Maturity has led me to firmly believe that my ability to be a witness for conservative values requires mutual respect.”

Not Just For Laundry Any More!

Some folks have given up on hanging laundry outside to dry to avoid air-borne allergens and now have a bucket full of clothespins that aren’t being used. Here are some ideas on how make them “earn their keep”! Avoid hammer accidents (and protect your thumb!) when hanging a picture by using a clothespin to securely hold the nail instead of your two fingers. Keep a retractable cord from rewinding too soon by clipping a clothespin near the opening. Use clothespins to silky, sleeveless shirts and dresses from slipping off the hanger. Say goodbye to wrinkled sun dresses on the floor!

Nazareth Morav. to Celebrate 266th

A 266th anniversary celebration will take place on Sunday June 30 at the Nazareth Moravian Church. There are many historic features about the present church building but one of the most extra-ordinary stories is the story of the Communion Table that stands tall in front of the sanctuary. The solid black walnut communion table was made from a black walnut tree believed to be 150 years old from the Chesterfield farm in Palmer Township. The tree fell two decades after WWI and wood planks sat until 1947 when it was placed in the church. The anniversary will be celebrated during regular worship services at 9:30 a.m.

GLVCC Ranked Among Most Social Media Friendly

The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce was recently ranked 14th in a list of the “Top 100 Most Social Media Friendly Chambers of Commerce” in the United States by OnlineMBAPage. com. The criteria for the most social media friendly chambers of commerce was based upon level of activity on multiple social media marketing platforms. The rankings were determined by the number of followers, likes, pins, etc. for around 550 chambers of commerce that met the minimum requirements for consideration. The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce scored 85.5 points out of a possible 100 for their presence and activity on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Google+ and flickr. The formula used to compute the final scores was designed to give the most weight to the social media platforms that were most frequently used. According to Frank J. Kenny, a social media expert who frequently speaks to chambers and their members, the chamber’s social media efforts must be primarily about the members, not about the chamber itself. The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce uses social media to highlight member news, share event information, provide business tips/advice, and as a platform for members to network with each other About the Chamber: The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to serve as the voice for business by continuously improving the economic climate and creating growth opportunities for the Greater Lehigh Valley region. We accomplish this through business-tobusiness networking events

A Corrective Lens

Vision abnormalities have been part of my life’s journey since before I donned my first pair of glasses at age 18 months. The eye doctor considers me a “package deal” with several issues all rolled into one individual. The combination of problems renders me, without my glasses, legally blind. Wishing my vision on anyone would never be a desire of mine. However, my vision has always been this way and I’ve come to think of it as normal -- for me. One condition, which is part of my visual mix, is severe myopia—nearsightedness. The closer I am to an object, the clearer it appears to me. Corrective lenses help me to focus better on distant objects. I offer the above as a preface to an observation. It appears to me that some times many people suffer from a form of myopia, in that they only see things up close and interpret the whole world by that nearsighted vision. A bitter cold day outside their window means there is no such thing as global warming. A snarl from someone in a public place means that person is always unpleasant. A person of color or with a different language commits a crime, all such individuals do the same. I’m sure you can think of many other cases of myopic vision as it pertains to how one sees the world and people in it. St. Paul says, in Romans 3:23 “…since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Can any of us be standing on such firm ground so as to make sweeping statements of judgment? Shouldn’t we, who are saved not by our own merit, but God’s divine grace, see a much bigger picture than that of our own often-myopic vision? On a trip, when I was very young, we spent a night in Chattanooga, TN.; upon exiting the motel in the morning I looked out the front door and saw a wide-open expanse of level scenery. I could deduce from that perspective that we were in a region of flat landscape. As I turned to go back into the motel I was confronted by the towering expanse of Look Out Mountain, towering over the motel and blocking out the sky. Myopia can distort our vision in many ways. We need the corrective lens of a living faith relationship with God that is open and always ready to receive him in many various and often-unfamiliar ways. Fight the myopia in and around you with a daily encounter with the living Lord. Act out that relationship by seeing your fellow human beings with grace and not myopic informed judgment.

newborn baby would decide to kill that baby. However, many have made the decision to terminate a pregnancy. Most often they are in need of counseling, emotional support, forgiveness and hope. Years earlier we lost twins. Karen was about three months pregnant at the time. Things were going wrong with the pregnancy and she was bleeding. The doctor said things were not good and a D&C was necessary. This was a decision that was made between our family and the doctor. What if someone from the county or even the Federal Government had to be consulted before the D&C took place? We were obviously miscarrying the babies. A government official could have delayed the procedure, wanted more information, said no or said yes. I do not believe the Federal Government or any government official should be involved in this process. I do not believe in abortion as a form of birth control. However, I do believe that decisions concerning pregnancies and abortions must be made between the mother, the family, and the doctor. Women and couples make decisions to abort that are later regretted with more sorrow and emotional scars. For many years I served as a pas-

Colonial Regional Police are investigating a burglary that occurred in the early morning hours of June 12. Three men were involved in breaking into the Exxon station located at 346 S.

She was released and charges for retail theft will be filed through DJ Joseph Barner’s office. On June 16 at 11:15 p.m., CRPD responded to Walmart on Rt. 248 in Lower Nazareth Township for two retail theft suspects in custody. Two 14-year-old girls from Nazareth and Mt. Bethel were seen by loss prevention placing $214 worth of merchandise in a handbag and exiting the store without paying for it. Both will be charged with retail theft through Northampton County Juvenile Court. They were released to their parents. Criminal Mischief Between May 27 and June 1, the victim, who was unnamed in the police report, was storing his 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle in the rental garage of his girlfriend, Sally Frisch, 50, of Penn St., Bath, which is located on Oak St. in Bath. During the dates noted, Ms. Frisch and the victim had an argument and Ms. Frisch went to the garage and cut both tires with scissors on the victim’s motorcycle. She was charged with criminal mischief via summons through District Judge John Capobianco’s office. The victim has since also applied for a protection from abuse order against Ms. Frisch through the Northampton County Court. Domestic Violence On June 15 at 11 p.m., CRPD responded to the Stanislawski residence on Creek Rd., Bath, for a domestic disturbance. Steven Stanislawski, 21, and James Stanislawski, 54, got into an argument about Steven refusing to turn off the window air conditioner in his room. James was pushed by Steven and James then put Steven in a head lock. Prior to Steven leaving the house, he was pushed by James, and then Steven hit James in the mouth. Both men received very minor injuries, but were issued non-traffic citations for harassment. Patronizing Prostitutes On June 10, Matthew Joseph Grum of 207 McNair Circle, Northampton, made arrange-

ments to meet a member of the Colonial Regional Police Department acting in an undercover capacity. Grum agreed to pay $80 for sex. He was taken into custody when he arrived at the location, 300 Gateway Dr., Bethlehem. Grum was processed and released. A summons will be sent by District Judge James Narlesky.

Moore Township

Son Takes Mother’s Laptop, Sells It Allen Jackson, 23, of Bath has been arraigned on charges of theft and receiving stolen property after he allegedly stole his mother’s laptop and sold it at an Easton pawn shop for money to feed his heroin addiction. Moore Township police said Susan Jackson noticed her computer missing on May 24 and said her son had been living at her Edgewood Court home for a week. He later admitted that he sold the laptop. When police saw on pawn shop surveillance tape that Jackson sold the computer, it was turned over to police by an employee. While it was valued at $400, he sold it for just $45. Jackson was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $8,000 bail.
