Personnel actions okayed, Board sees new lunch prices By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
Seven personnel actions were approved at a meeting of the Northampton Area School Board on Monday night. They include: –A revised job description for the school psychologist, effective June 28. –Childbearing / childrearing leaves of absence for Jaclyn Grejda and Krista Maxwell. –Resignations of Donald Wright, security guard at the middle school; Lacey Snyder, junior class advisor; Nadine Rupp, district wide guidance department coordinator, and Tara Mrazik, K-12 business/ information science department coordinator. New Lunch Prices There will be a five-cent increase in lunch prices for the 2011-12 school year, as follows:
student summer help at a rate of $7.25 an hour, from June 13 to August 19. . . .An amendment to the collective bargaining agreement between the school district and the Northampton Area Maintenance/Teamsters Union Local #771, effective July 1, 2011 through June 14, 2014 . . . . A contract with the confidential secretaries for the school years 2011-12 to 2013-14. An agreement for purchase of computer service from Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit for business and personnel software was approved, effective July 1, at an annual cost of $41,295. Since Northampton County will be collecting earned income taxes under a new state law, the board adopted an amended EIT resolution, effective Jan. 1, 2012.
An East Allen Township business requested permission this past week to stage a fireworks celebration on July 4th at 9:30 p.m. But solicitor Joseph Leeson on Thursday told the board: “From a legal perspective, we’re not in a position to accept or reject” the proposal. East Allen does not have a fireworks ordinance, but from this discussion they are considering one for the future. Treasurer Rose Wedde did some research on fireworks and reported to the supervisors that Lehigh and Washington townships do, and Pennsylvania state law spells out what can and cannot legally be set off to celebrate Independence Day. Lucky Strokes of 7200 Airport Rd., Bath, said in their letter that they would be of a “Class C” variety. Depending upon which laws apply, they could be used. But in most cases, fireworks operators must have a permit, license and liability insurance. John McDermitt said in a recent year a resident set off fireworks in his backyard and it caused a small fire. He said he recently contacted the State Police fire marshal about fireworks and was told how the law works. McDer-
mitt said in the past, he has turned down people who wanted to set off fireworks in their yards. Mrs. Wedde noted that laws require a permit for purchase and display of fireworks. Other Matters • The board released letters of credit for Trader Joe’s since engineer Jim Birdsall said all maintenance work has been finished that was required at the warehouse along Silver Creek Rd. A letter of credit was also released for Arcadia Land Development, where they are in the process of having a 42-inch storm water pipe installed along Rt. 512.
• Board members said that the Parks & Recreation Commission’s Summerfest went very well at Bicentennial Park. “Everybody really enjoyed themselves,” said Supervisor Mark Schwartz. The fire department and ambulance demonstrations were very well done and “people were amazed,” added Supervisor Judith Ladonis. • Public Works Coordinator Gary Mathesz, in his report, noted that Allen Township helped with a paver; a manhole has been repaired along Airport Rd.; a tree fell Continued on page 9

Limit Immigration The United States is now a nation of over 310 million people, millions not yet citizens, some not making an effort to become citizens. It’s true the United States has long been a nation of immigrants--at the beginning most came from Europe and for scores of years the U.S. was considered primarily an English democracy, even long after independence was won. German immigration was heavy in the years between the winning of independence and the early 20th century and German Americans became the most populous part of the population in most of the country. In the 1920’s immigration became so heavy that Congress enacted an immigration quota law. It allowed a percentage of immigrants from each foreign country matching their percentage of the U.S. population. That quota system lasted about forty years, until the presidency of Lyndon Johnson, who managed to get Congress to end the quota system. When the quota system ended in 1965, the change in American population was almost immediate. In 1990, as an example, immigrants and their children accounted for 100 percent of the population growth of California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois and Massachusetts. They totaled half the growth of the states of Florida, Texas, Michigan and Maryland. The vast majority of these immigrants were Hispanics. The political effect of this immigration from the South has been a benefit for Democrats. As recently as 1996 this was very evident. Of the seven U.S. states with the largest number of foreign born, six voted for the Democrat candidate in that presidential election--for Bill Clinton. The same trend was seen in 2000. The nine states with the smallest share of immigrants, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia and Wyoming all went for the Republican presidential candidate, George W. Bush. The heavy influx of Hispanics (15 million have entered the country in the last decade) is an aid to Democratcandidates. Republicans must be aware of this next year and in future presidential elections.

Opinion This Fourth of July: Confirm Thy Soul In Self-Control By Paul G. Kengor I encourage you to set aside the burgers and dogs and soda and beer for a moment this Fourth of July and contemplate something decidedly different, maybe even as you gaze upward at the flash of fireworks. Here it is: Confirm thy soul in self-control. What do I mean by that? Let me explain. The founders of this remarkable republic often thought and wrote about the practice of virtue generally and self-control specifically, two things long lost in this modern American culture of self. Thomas Jefferson couldn’t avoid a reference to one of the cardinal virtues—prudence— in our nation’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence, which, incidentally, ought to be a mustread for every American every Fourth of July (it’s only 1,800 words). Our first president and ultimate Founding Father, George Washington, knew the necessity of governing one’s self before a nation’s people were capable of selfgovernance. As Washington stated in his classic Farewell Address, “’Tis substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.” A forgotten philosopher who had an important influence on the American Founders was the Frenchman, Charles Montesquieu, whose work included the seminal book, The Spirit of the Laws (1748). Montesquieu considered various forms of government. In a tyrannical system, people are prompted not by freedom of choice or any expression of public virtue but, instead, by the sheer coercive power of the state, whether by decree of an individual despot or an unaccountable rogue regime. That’s no way for human beings to live. There’s life under such a system, yes, but not much liberty or pursuit of happiness; even life itself is threatened. Montesquieu concluded that the best form of government is a self-governing one, and yet it is also the most difficult to maintain because it demands a virtuous populace. As noted by John Howard— the outstanding senior fellow at the Howard Center for Family, Religion, & Society— Montesquieu noted that each citizen in a self-governing state must voluntarily abide by certain essential standards of conduct: lawfulness, truthfulness, honesty, fairness, respect for the rights and wellbeing of others, obligation to one’s spouse and children, to name a few. “Each new generation must
be trained to be responsible citizens … to be virtuous and conscientious,” writes Howard in The St. Croix Review. “Once the free society is wellestablished, the daily life of the family and the society is such that becoming virtuous is not a monstrous chore for the young people.” Sadly, becoming virtuous has indeed become a monstrous chore in a society not only lacking virtue but eschewing virtue—fleeing virtue like a vampire fleeing a cross. Living life in a good way—what Benedict Groeschel calls The Virtue Driven Life—becomes so alien that the people prefer darkness over light. When virtues are not taught—whether at home, at school, or by America’s educator-in-chief, the TV set—they become unknown and ignored and unfulfilled, desiccated and dead upon the national landscape. And perhaps saddest of all, as John Howard notes, virtue is something that can be acquired, like learning to speak a culture’s language. Once inculcated, however, it needs to be continuously reinforced by the cultural elements of the society. Virtue needs nourished, like fruitful plants need water and sunlight. Says Howard emphatically: “I want to repeat…. Virtue must be continuously reinforced by the culture.” We Americans might not think about this much, but we actually sing it fairly often, even if the words don’t sink in. Consider this line from one of our sacred political hymns, America, the Beautiful: America, America, God mend thine ev’ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in selfcontrol, Thy liberty in law. That’s the ticket: Confirm thy soul in self-control. Our
liberty is enshrined in our laws, but liberty should not be license for opportunities for the flesh. Our liberties, protected and permitted as they are, should not be exploited to do anything and everything we want, including things harmful to oneself, to one’s family, to one’s neighbors, to one’s culture, to one’s country. That misunderstanding and abuse of freedom is what Pope Benedict XVI calls a “confused ideology of freedom,” one that can engender “the self-destruction of freedom” for others. In truth, a genuine freedom requires responsibility. As the song says—and as Washington and Montesquieu intimated—we must successfully govern ourselves in order to successfully govern our nation. It’s a timeless concept worth remembering this Fourth of July and every day going forward.

The gang he always sat with down at T & C, spinning some Pennsylvania Dutch, and stories of bygone days, will miss him. He lived to be 93, as I get it. . . .

Walmart grant helps Meals On Wheels Feed hungry seniors in Lehigh Valley Meals On Wheels of Northampton County has been awarded $20,000 through a Walmart Foundation grant to the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA). The money will provide Meals On Wheels of Northampton County with much-needed food service equipment which is critical to continue serving seniors. This financial support is desperately needed as many Meals On Wheels programs across the country continue to struggle with skyrocketing gasoline costs and rising food prices. The Walmart Foundation-MOWAA “Building the Future” Impact Grants will allow Meals On Wheels of Northampton County to buy equipment and help ensure sustainability while fostering long-term growth. “Thanks to the Walmart Foundation-MOWAA Build-
ing the Future Impact Grant, we now have a brighter future in our efforts to keep feeding seniors in our community,” said JoAnn Bergeron Nenow, Executive Director. “This grant will help us provide the next meal to many of our clients in need and will truly make a difference for the seniors of Northampton County.” The Walmart Foundation recently announced a $5 million donation to MOWAA as part of a $2 billion commitment to support hunger relief efforts through 2015. Part of that $5 million donation will fund the “Building the Future” Impact Grants. The grants will help more than 100 local Meals On Wheels programs purchase stoves, refrigerators, trucks and other equipment needed in the fight to end senior hunger. The Walmart Founda-
tion first became a partner of Meals On Wheels in 2008. A donation of $750,000 to MOWAA helped 80 struggling member programs restore meal services that had been reduced or were facing cuts. In late 2009, the Foundation donated an additional $2.2 million to MOWAA that helped 147 Member programs expand their meal services with new equipment. “We know that seniors are among those hardest hit by hunger in this country. Many are home-bound, and rely on neighbors and community volunteer programs like Meals On Wheels to help put food on the table,” said Margaret McKenna, president of the Walmart Foundation. “Through this $5 million grant, we hope to bring additional attention to senior Continued on page 8

A few other tips so that homeowners can reduce their dryer costs: • Always clean out your lint trap. A clogged lint trap will reduce air flow, making your dryer use more energy to do the same work. Additionally, lint is highly flammable and can easily cause a fire. • Don't overload your dryer. You don't want to dry only a few items at a time, but neither do you want to overload your dryer. Dryers work by circulating air around tumbling clothes. If your dryer's packed too tightly, air won't circulate, and you'll have to run the dryer an extra cycle. • If you're doing several loads of laundry at once, reload the dryer right away. The dryer will already be warm, so it will use less energy to dry that second or third batch of clothes.

The 2011 Gold Cup has just ended with Mexico defeating the United States 4-2. The game was played in Pasadena at the famed Rose Bowl before a pro-Mexican crowd. While a disappointing finish for the U.S., the Americans can use the defeat to get better for their true goal - the
2014 World Cup in Brazil. Led by the talented trio of Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and goalkeeper Tim Howard the Americans have a lot to look forward to. Perhaps their most pressing concern is to soldify an aging defense. Newcomer Eric Lichaj has a bright future but there needs to be more capable youth to fill in for veterans such as captain Carlos Bocanegra. The mid-field looks promising with coach’s son Michael Bradley as well as the return from injury of Stuart Holden. Questions remain about soccer’s popularity in the U.S., but not about the quality of the American players.
Northampton Cty. Legion baseball Recent scores from games played by area Northampton County Legion baseball teams are noted.

East Bath Team of Three Wins SCTP State Championship
By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
A team of three shooters from the East Bath Rod & Gun Club recently captured the Pa. State Sporting Clay Target Program championship at matches held Meshoppen, Wyoming County, with a total of 150 kids participating on the Rock Mountain Sporting Clays range. They had tied for first place and then went into a shootoff with another team. Matt Edelman of Bath spelled the difference as he hit all his shots. The difference between the two first place teams was that East Bath got nine out of 12 and the other six out of 12 when they each had four shots in the single station. Winning the varsity division championship on June 18 along with Edelman were teammates Brady Simms and Michael Pogirski. The trio was part of a 15-member East Bath Rod & Gun Club team of sixth to twelfth grade boys and girl who are coached by Bill Kelsey and assistant John Meyers. Kelsey hails from Sciota, Monroe County, while Meyers is a veteran Bath area sportsman and gun shop owner in nearby Klecknersville. “They did terrific,” Meyers said, noting that the team as a whole made good use of the $500 grant they received from the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s
Clubs and more help from the East Bath club, located along Township Line Rd. just east of Bath. The grant money from the sportsmen is part of what they receive in the annual Whitetail Deer Classic, which has grown leaps and bounds over the past seven years. Kelsey personally thanked the Federation for the grant at an April meeting. Meyers said that East Bath is always hoping for more shooters in the age group mentioned above. “We’ll train them – the younger the better.”The club furnishes loaner guns for the kids if they need them. The training starts with free lessons on how to shoot. But they also learn etiquette, meaning they are instilled in the wisdom of true sportsmanship. Practice is done at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays in Lehigh County, and also at the Whitetail Preserve in Hazleton. On August 13th the group will have a picnic and shoot for the kids at the Hazleton location. Meyers said the East Bath team WILL compete in the national championships July 13 to 16 at the World Shooting Complex, sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Donations are gratefully accepted, and we know that the sportsmen will willingly donate to help these youngsters achieve their goal. Sporting clay shooting is fun because targets pop up

from anywhere, unlike in trap shooting where the missiles are sent aloft from a single station. Hunters know that pheasants, rabbits and other small game they may be stalking come out of nowhere, and that’s how you have to react with shooting clays. SCTP is a team-based program, focused on youth development. It’s supposed to be fun, while providing a supportive team-based environment, using clay target sports as the catalyst for teaching life lessons and skills that emphasize positive character traits and citizenship values. The program introduces young shooters to a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime, one that offers a level playing field, and offers all family members an opportunity to play. If you’d like to help send these kids to the nationals, contact either Meyers at 610837-6376 or Kelsey at 1-570234-7391.

Those findings are from a year-long national study that surveyed hundreds of people over age 50 who have fallen victim to some of today's biggest scams. Study co-author Doug Shadel with AARP says almost two-thirds of older fraud victims did at least two of the most risky behaviors.

Kazoo parade leads 4th of July celebration The Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce will host the annual kazoo parade and patriotic program on Monday, July 4th, that has become a Nazareth tradition. Those wishing to participate in the parade will start at the Nazareth High School at 9:30 a.m. Walkers will be separated into divisions, all assigned different patriotic songs to play on the kazoos, which have been donated by Lafayette Ambassador Bank. From the high school, the parade route will take the marchers up S. Liberty Street, and make a right turn on to Belvidere St., follow until Main St., and make a right turn up to the circle, go half way around and turn on to W. Center St. and end at Borough Council chambers.
When arriving there, greetings will be given by local elected officials as well as Congressman Charlie Dent. The grand marshal of the parade this year is Abbe “Miss G” Graber, known as the “Kazoo Lady of Woodstock”. She has been singing the blues and playing a blues style wooden kazoo for more than 30 years. Her company, Woodstock Wooden Kazoos, opened on the 40th anniversary of the original music festival in 1969 and each kazoo is handcrafted and resembles the beauty of the surrounding mountains. In addition, patriotic entertainment will be featured by the Lehigh Valley Idol, and there will be a display of Miss G’s wooden kazoos available for purchase.

June 30-July 6, 2011
News Sermonette Pastor Jamie Possinger Hope Lutheran, Cherryville
Trust God in Life “Once upon a time”…that’s the way most fairy tales begin and they almost always end with the words “and they lived happily ever after.” I love a good fairy tale and I love happy endings. But did you ever notice that the story which happens between the beginning and the end of fairy tales are often fraught with danger, deceit, betrayal and miscommunication, as well as friendship, truth, loyalty, and love? And there always seems to be one or more characters who help to “save” the day! Take, for instance, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Once upon a time her life was perfect – but when her kingly father marries a wicked woman who becomes queen, her life is turned upside down. Treachery and evil abound as she finds a safe haven, love and friendship in the house of the seven dwarfs. But even they cannot save her from the malevolent desires of the queen who casts a spell on the unsuspecting Snow White. Fated to remain in a deep sleep forever unless someone kisses her awake, Snow White lies cold and still until a handsome Prince arrives and brings her to life once more. What an ending! Our lives are not really that different from a good fairy tale. “Once upon a time” we are born and so begins the tale of our lives. We mosey through life facing joys and sorrows – broken relationships and life-long friendships – spiritual hunger and spiritual fulfillment – sinfulness and forgiveness. All kinds of characters appear in our stories – ones who support us and ones who turn against us. We may face evil, hardships and discontent. But through it all God never leaves us alone – walking with us through every dark valley and every sunny mountaintop. Not only that – but God has also sent us a Savior – one who comes to rescue us and give us new life. Oh sure, you may say, but my life isn’t concluding with a happily-ever-after-ending. I would encourage you to think again. After all, believers understand the promise of eternal life Jesus offers when our lives have ended on earth. The Bible recounts for us an eternal dwelling place where there is no more pain or tears or sadness or death – where we find ourselves in the presence of God – forever. Personally, I can’t imagine a more happy-ever-after ending!
