Supervisors, LTAA discuss Proposed rec center By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

On Feb. 26, more than six pages of Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors minutes were devoted to a proposed community / recreation center that the Lehigh Township Athletic Association has had in the planning stage for several years, and is now getting closer to reality. At last Tuesday’s board meeting, Mike Cuchran brought an overlay of the building as it would be located on 3.5 acres of land in Delps Park, or in some minds

5 acres. He and the supervisors discussed a lease, parking, how the project might be financed, and who would maintain it. Cuchran, Rod Christman and Mike Druckenmiller were at the Feb. 26 meeting with the details of what LTAA has been planning since 2000. Their goal: a long-term home for young athletes, their families, and the community to participate in sporting events and life lessons. Since 2008, the concept has been that the building would provide great community benefits – not just

for the LTAA youth, but also for the adults and seniors of Lehigh Township, opening it up to community events, using the Northampton Recreation Center as a model of their planning. To date, LTAA has spent $70,000 in developing the plans. It was also pointed out last month that 350 children are participating in winter sports – 60 in wrestling, 110 in basketball, 30 in cheering, and 150 Continued on page 9

At Thursday night’s meeting of the Allen Township Board of Supervisors, it was noted that the Northampton County Soil Conservation District cited violations found at three developments. They listed problems that needed to be dealt with at Hampton Ridge, Towpath Estates, and North Hill. Only the last one was represented at the meeting, and he said he is aggravated that the conservation district finds fault with what he is doing. He told the board that they are doing everything by the book, following DEP and EPA regulations, and have been required to put a 10-ft. berm on a retention pond. Supervisors Chairman Paul Balliet

Activities cancelled after Gun scare in Northampton At approximately 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, Northampton Area Schools Supt. Joseph Kovalchik received a call that two suspicious people were walking on 17th St. in the Borough of Northampton. This street is located near Siegfried Elementary School and Northampton High School. It was reported that one person had a bag. In that bag it appeared that a stock or handle of a gun was exposed.

All athletes, coaches and children on the playgrounds were moved indoors. Northampton Borough police and district police investigated the area and gave an “all clear.” As a precautionary measure, all activities at the high school, middle school and borough elementary schools were cancelled last Wednesday evening.

advised him to meet personally with the conservation district to discuss the issues. Meet State Police Supervisors Bruce Frack and Williams Holmes and Township Manager Ilene Eckhart recently met with the Pa. State Police of the Bethlehem Barracks, citing residents’ complaints of speeding cars, motorists ignoring stop signs, and disorderly conduct with ATV’s. They were told that the State Police unit has troopers on in two shifts who can deal with the problem. Allen and East Allen townships have had about 600 complaints the past year, including excessive fire alarms, and people speeding through stop signs,

With each generation, medical breakthroughs have helped people live longer. But quality of life is one of the most important issues most people face today. That’s partially due to unhealthy lifestyles that many people don’t know how to change. Americans work more hours and sleep less than most other countries in the world. We lead busy lives, packed with stress, take limited spans of vacation time, and we don’t spend enough time focusing energy on improving the quality of our lives. If you want to live a healthier, longer life that is packed with quality, there are several things— easy things, you can do—starting

today. Do You Need An “Oil Change?” Have you ever noticed that we often do a better job taking care of the machines around us than we do taking care of ourselves. Just as our car requires attention, we need to keep a positive outlook and continually renew our subscription to happiness. One way to improve wellbeing is by alleviating stress. Bottling up your emotions when dealing with stress is like allowing it to ferment and turn into a potent problem. You can also improve your physical and mental health by stimulating key areas of the brain used for memory and concentra-

tion by staying active. We now understand how important sleep is to our overall mental and physical health. Many variables contribute to poor quality of sleep but we do know that in older adults, sleep may help repair some of the damage from aging brain cells. This damage may contribute to memory problems, concentration and other important mental tasks. Simple Steps to a Happier Lifestyle What can you do to keep your healthy and happy lifestyle on track? Use these tips to get started. * Go wild. Take a break in nature and go for a walk in a park or a public green space. Being out and about can do wonders for your state of mind. * Book yourself. That’s right… put YOU on your schedule to do things that make you happy. Many people find that if they put their name on the daily calendar—like Susan- break time—2-3 p.m., crossword puzzles, walk around the block—-will accomplish tasks more often than not. * Let in natural light. Research reported in a Lancet study (2009) said that older people who lived near natural beauty might be able to reduce stress and their blood pressure. The study showed that this group had longer telemones, that’s the part of the DNA string that shortens as someone ages. In other words many people who were able to enjoy pleasant scenery every day not only felt younger, their DNA reflected this. * Sign up for Tai Chi. Research has shown that this age old exercise that embraces the mind, body and spirit, can help physical ailments like arthritis in creaky knees. * Ramp up your social life. In a recent study The British Medical Journal found that people over 75 who have a moderately active social network could expect to add 5.4 years to their life. Keep Up Your Happiness Subscription

Remember, your quality of life goes hand in hand with feeling rested and happy. Incorporate these ideas and you’ll be well on your way to improving your life. •Take time out for you. •Maintain a positive attitude. Stay focused on the good things going on in your life. Reflect on your successes instead of things that are out of your control. •Write down your worries. Journaling what worries you may help pinpoint the real core of some problem so you can work on them more objectively. •Take one day at a time. Focus on making the most of the present moment. George Bernard Shaw wrote in his play Misalliance:

“The secret of being miserable is to have leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not. The cure for it is occupation, because occupation means pre-occupation; and the pre-occupied person is neither happy nor unhappy, but simply alive and active. That is why it is necessary to happiness that one should be tired.”

In Someone We Trust

By CAROL RITTER

I recently read a poll on trust. “How much do you trust the following people?” The poll results state that we trust our friends the most 81%, we trust our doctor 68%. That’s the good news. We trust Congress 12%, our bankers 45% and we trust CEO’s 3 to 5% - the least. Oh my goodness, where do you think you rank, what percentage would your customers rank you? I was thinking about who I might trust, completely. I trust my family, I trust most of the people I work with, I trust my doctor, my dentist, my master-mind group, my favorite restaurant and more. I checked Webster...trust means reliance on the integrity & strength of a person-having confidence But then the REAL question. Who don’t we trust? My answer is I don’t trust people or companies who break the trust. Those establishments who don’t deliver. Think about friendships, when you have a friend who betrays you, it takes a long time to regain the trust. Sometimes, it’s over forever. It’s

the same with business, if you betray a customer or client they might be gone forever. Or even worse, you may spend an inordinate amount of time regaining the trust. Time translates to money in most businesses. In order to build trust and confidence with your customers try this.... •Be the first to take responsibility for a mistake, don’t blame others •Listen more - Talk less - the greatest human need is to be listened to •Be willing to “make up” with some free stuff •Be sincere when your apologize, customers can identify phoney •Do what you say you will do, do it one time and do it correctly •Train your staff, model trustworthy behavior •Raise expectations, always be willing to go over and above to not only gain trust but to maintain it You may want to...Trust your own instincts. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s. Billy Wilder, Hollywood Filmaker- think about this!

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie

BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷

Americans can be proud that a sport their country developed is fast becoming a world-popular team sport. That sport is the National Pastime, baseball. (The addition which adds “all the time” should be deleted as silly.) The recent World Baseball Classic, with a number of American Major League players on teams from their

home countries, was evidence of the worldwide ascendancy of baseball. There were highly competent teams from all parts of the world in competition. One reason baseball is so popular in the Far East is size of the players. In football most of the top players are large--some up to 300 pounds or more. Few baseball players weigh so much. Running the bases at over 300 pounds would be slower. Another advantage of baseball is that there’s not the constant brutality of “hits” fans see in football. Though some enjoy the physical hits football is finally confronting this negative, so many players suffering lifetime injuries.

Snow trims dart play, but Bath braves it, and loses Only two series were played on Monday night in the Suburban Inter-Church Dart Baseball League because of another two inches of snow. For a Bath team, maybe they should have stayed home. Christ UCC traveled to St. Paul’s UCC in Northampton and lost all three games by identical 3-2 scores, the first game going 18 innings. Hitters for St. Paul’s were Debbie Hughes, 8 for 17 with a homer, and Jason Gross, 7 for 16. For Bath, Joe Hunsicker hit 8 for 16 with a home run; Dan DalCin, 6 for 17, and Ron Wagner, 5 for 16. The other series saw Dryland-Trinity of Hecktown losing 7-4 and 6-3 before they won 5-3 at Salem Lutheran in Bethlehem. Salem: Bryan Frankenfield, 7 for 12; Walt Hoffert, 6 for 12; Kyle Taylor, 5 for 12, and Tim Eichman, a homer. Dryland: Bernie Yurko, 7 for 13; Earl Sigley, 5 for 13, and Lou Devarics, 4 for 12. St. Stephen’s at Bath Lutheran, Farmersville at Messiah, Trinity at Salem UCC and Ebenezer at Emmanuel were postponed.

Mentored Fishing A First for PFBC This Saturday

If you have a 2013 fishing license and trout stamp, and have pre-registered with the Pa. Fish & Boat Commission at fishandboat.com/mentoredyouth.htm then you are eligible as an adult or an angler 16 years or older to mentor a child for the PFBC’s inaugural Mentored Youth Fishing Day this Saturday, March 23, from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. But for Northampton County, it’s only being held in the Lehigh Canal. Rainbow trout have been stocked in the Bethlehem and Freemansburg sections of the canal for this special event. Access in Bethlehem starts at the first canal lock west of the Monocacy Creek and you can get there at the towpath on Sand Island. Freemansburg’s best point is from Main Street. WCO Jeff Sabo had announced the program at a meeting of the county Sportsmen’s Federation last month. It’s designed to bring families closer together by having adults teaching children how to fish. Lehigh Canal was the chosen water for this event.

Leaser Lake to Get Rainbow Trout As It Re-opens

After months, almost years, that Leaser Lake in Lehigh County has been closed for repairs, it will be re-opened as the trout season here in the Southeast Region begins on Saturday, March 30. Rainbow trout are scheduled to be stocked in the lake near New Tripoli on Tuesday, March 26, by Lehigh County WCO Lee Creyer, who’s well known in the Bath area. Northampton County’s impoundment is Minsi Lake, north of Bangor. WCO Sabo has been stocking that lake.

March 30 Here, April 13 Elsewhere, Also in Bath Contest

As noted previously, Northampton County is one of 18 counties that will open the trout season on March 30, while the rest of the state has to wait until April 13. The same goes for Bath area youngsters who will cast their lines into the Monocacy Creek for trout stocked by the Bath Area Fish Committee. That contest is April 13 and 14, from 8 a.m. Saturday to 3 p.m. Sunday. The committee, and any help they can get, has been cleaning the creek on weekends in March. If you want to help, call Ozzie Moser at 610-969-8730.

Letters from our Readers Feels She Was Slighted for Position To the Editor: Recently, I attended another Bath Council meeting and ended up leaving disappointed and in awe, because of how crystal clear and biased this Council and their own agendas are. Once again there were concerned citizens there with legitimate concerns about parking issues for their businesses and zoning (and without actually admitting it) they seemed to have their minds already made up. So why open the meetings up to the public when the public’s concerns and questions don’t seem to matter (well, just to the few who get what they need out of the agenda)? This is the third or fourth time that I sat there and watched as my fellow neighbors were shot down

and made to feel ridiculous for having asked questions. This Council does not seem to care about the greater good, just what is good for a certain few. I feel it is time for a change, which I tried to make by filling a seat on the appeals board that would have done some good, only to be ignored and denied. Also, let me clarify I do not

feel all Council members are out for their own gain. There are a couple who seem like decent people. I urge all citizens to attend the next Council meeting to see just how everything is handled, and I hope that you don’t have any issues to be resolved because that is not the place for it.

break-ins, among others. Both townships rely solely on State Police coverage for protection, although there have been thoughts on occasion about calling upon Northampton police for coverage as well. Other Matters The township engineer will look at a problem where water flows off one or two properties on to Howertown Road and is a traffic hazard. They may be required to put in an expensive retention pond. There is also erosion at Spring Hill Road, where water run-off from two driveways is causing mud. In a zoning hearing appeal, the engineer will send a letter defining what impervious coverage is. Usually it is the measurement of a parking lot of blacktop. Jim Wilson was re-appointed to be Allen Township representative for another five years on the First Regional Compost Authority. Fire Co. Report The February report of the Allen Township Fire Co. #1 showed these man-hours: alarms, 107.7; training, 120; and 17 alarms (1 airport alert, 2 ambulance assists, 3 auto accidents,, 5 automatic fire alarms, 1 CO detector alarm, 4 dwelling fires [at Beech Dr. & S. Cottonwood Rd. in Lehigh Twsp., Locust Rd. & Arrowhead Rd. in East Allen, Scarboro Lane & Atlas Lane in Northampton, and McNair Circle in Allen Twsp.]; and 1 traffic control.

in winter soccer. Presently, they are leasing a space at Lehigh Town Center for $1,000 a month that is due to increase to $1,500, and they use the elementary school gym and other facilities out of the area. A figure like $1.5 million was mentioned on Tuesday, and Cuchran believed this could be raised through grants and corporate sponsors. Supervisor Cynthia Miller said she has no idea what the building would look like, and questioned whether grant funds would be available, saying that no taxpayer dollars should be spent for it. “I’m looking at everything we have to do in the community, like the maintenance building, things that are a necessity,” she said. “Once the building is built, what happens with maintaining it and the land, if we have a lease?” Chairman Darryl Snover and Supervisor Keith Hantz said it would be LTAA’s responsibility. Hantz added, “We should be concerned with what happens with the kids. All the LTAA is looking for now is a lease, and the center fees are increasing and time for using the school gym is limited.” Solicitor David Backenstoe said LTAA would need collateral if they want to borrow, say $800,000, over 30 years. Snover said, “We’re not paying for the building. I’m not opposed to a lease, but the question is financing. The lease was already approved by a prior board.” Hantz asked Backenstoe if they could put something in the lease to protect the township [if LTAA defaulted on paying its loan]. Backenstoe replied, ”The

lease can be written with what we envision for the property.” He suggested a committee be formed and the LTAA contact two or three banks for financing. Cuchran said he was comfortable with what was discussed by the board and the township solicitor. Other Matters • Before the board went into executive session for personnel issues, they and the audience heard from Jennifer Sletvold, a candidate for judge in the Northampton County Court of Common Please in the May 21 primary election. A mother of two and a lawyer for 15 years with court experience, she said she wants to be a judge who is fair as she upholds the Constitution. • Engineer Phillip Malitsch told the board that prospects are good for getting PEMA and FEMA reimbursement for hurricane damages in the township. • The township may purchase a street sweeper for $226,000, a discounted price since it is a demo. Part of the cost would be paid from liquid fuels funds, and the rest financed. But the board questioned one quote of financing at 3.2%, and asked Manager Alice Rehrig to get one or two more quotes. • The supervisors voted to advertise for summer help locally, to assist road foreman Frank Zamadics. Township residents would be preferred for the parttime work. Police Chief Report Chief of Police Scott Fogel had an extensive support, and received approval for lockers and a locker room, along with a cell block detention area for the police station, costing an estimated $12,000 out of a $31,000 grant that was received. He also said part-time officers are very good and are a great support role; security has been stepped up at the station and in patrol cars with cameras; that he expects more need for services from police as well as fire and rescue units once the Blue

Awards presented at Nazareth Area Chamber’s annual banquet By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Four special awards were presented Saturday night at the annual banquet of the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce, held at Woodstone Country Club in Danielsville. The major honor went to

Vanessa Sabatine, owner of Herbs to Your Success, a wellness spa in the Borough of Nazareth. The Nazareth native and graduate of Nazareth Area High School opened her business in 1994. She specializes in herbs and therapeutic essential oils for general health and weight loss.

In accepting the award from Chamber chairperson Cindy Fairbanks, she said she doesn’t have a secret to success, but you “Gotta work hard at it to achieve success,” and with a passion to keep going, having stamina, and having someone (like her husband) who has your back. One of the first awards on the night went to a Bath couple, John and Margaret Scott, of 102 S. Chestnut St., who have restored their 1840 home and made it beautiful. The award was presented by Bath Borough Council president Robert Fields and Mayor Donald Wunderler. The Scott’s were praised for adding an attractive home in Bath’s historic district. The Spirit of Nazareth Award went to Tom Fehnel, founder of Visions of Eagles in Nazareth, who resides in Florida. Since it was organized in 2008 more than $100,000 has been raised to help people in the community. The Volunteer of the Year was Jane DiGirolomo, who helps at various functions of the Chamber. Before her

State Senator Lisa Boscola. Part of the evening’s program consisted of power point slides showing highlights of Chamber activities and events during 2012, along with scenes from Bath’s 275th anniversary, and the improvements that have been made including Monocacy Creek Park and Keystone Park. This has been achieved with inter-governmental cooperation that has been a mark of the borough’s success, with great assistance from the BathBusiness & Community Partnership, Council,

and the fire fighters. Many improvements were made in Nazareth Borough with funding from Community Development Block Grants, including a pool and filter system, left turn traffic light at S. Broad St., scholarships, and many festivals and events that residents and Chamber members celebrated. A birthday cake was presented to Danalee Eleckes, and shortly after she blew out the candles, her boyfriend, Keith Van Horn, publicly proposed to her. The evening ended with dancing. Thanks was extended to 13 businesses that were event sponsors. Serving on the banquet committee were Jennifer Scanlon, Tina Smith, Frank DeRosa, Barbara Smith, Tom Lichtenwalner, Don Flad, and Dean Wagner.

News Sermonette Pastor Edward L. Bean Calvary Evangelical United Methodist Church, Tamaqua

Where are you, Jesus?

Are you convinced that you could give up on life and no one would miss you? Columnist Earl Wilson jokingly has an answer: “If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.” Fear and isolated loneliness characterizes much of modern day living. Unemployment and financial needs have many people filled with discomfort and uncertainty for their future. Families are coming apart under the political pressures of social engineering. The political process becomes the venue to force a redefining of morality and family life. Our teenagers are losing themselves to sensuality, drugs and lives of crime and suicide. Our youth are quickly becoming a lost generation to the church and to the Easter message. In the New Testament some Greeks attended the Passover Festival as John 12: 20-33 recorded it. They came to Jesus’ Disciple, Philip, and said, “Sir, we would see Jesus.” Multitudes are all around us in a world shaking loose from moral guidelines and encountering social upheaval. The Easter message reminds us that the universal need of humanity is: “We would see Jesus!” Where can we see Jesus? First, we can see Jesus in the historical record of Holy Scripture. We encounter Him in the Gospel Writers of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These Writers do not tell us everything about Jesus, but our Lord’s presence comes alive as we experience the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. No person has ever lived, died or arisen from the power of evil and death like the Biblical Jesus has. Second, we see Jesus in the lives of persons in need. Throughout the ages of church history men, women and children have testified to the terror and emptiness of human life without Jesus as personal Savior. He is a contemporary Christ who can understand our needs and can address them. He give us an abundance of God’s grace through His forgiveness, healing power and sacrificial love. We need Jesus for this life. We need Jesus to deliver us from sin and forgive us for our wrongdoings. We need Jesus to provide for our salvation, be our Guide through this life and give us the free gift of eternal life. Easter is Jesus’ story and our invitation to experience new life. As with those in John’s Gos-

the famous conservationist Aldo Leopold called the spring flight of the American Woodcock. A member of the shorebird family, the woodcock uses its long bill to probe mud for earthworms. Unfortunately, development is encroaching on the last remaining woodcock habitat in the Lehigh Valley and Jacobsburg is one of their last strongholds. Join us for this special evening to observe male woodcocks displaying. To register, contact Rick Wiltraut at rwiltraut@pa.gov or 610-746-2810. Frog Slog Saturday, March 23rd, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. 
Have you ever slogged for frogs in a vernal pond? Vernal ponds are temporary bodies of water that form in spring from rain and snow melt. Because these ponds lack predatory fish, they are used by frogs and salamanders to breed and lay eggs. Join us for this nighttime journey to explore these woodland ponds. Be prepared to get wet!

gram limited to 25 participants. To register, contact Rick Wiltraut at rwiltraut@pa.gov or 610-746-2810.

Sands Bethlehem to Switch off lights For Earth Hour

On Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 p.m., Sands Bethlehem, along with Las Vegas Sands’ resorts in Las Vegas, Singapore and Macao, is joining the world by turning off all non-essential exterior lights for one hour—Earth Hour. It’s part of the largest public message for environmental change ever. Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia in 2007 when more than two million people turned off their lights for one hour to take a stand for environmental protection. It has since become a worldwide phenomenon. In 2012, more than 7,000 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories participated in Earth Hour, and the support did not stop there. The Earth Hour website saw 4.6 million hits during the week of Earth Hour, with more than 200,000 people personally pledging to take a direct action beyond just the hour. “Here at Sands Bethlehem, it’s not just about that one hour on that one day,” said Sands Bethlehem President, Robert DeSalvio. “It’s about making a commitment to ongoing change that reduces our impact on the environment in the long run.” The Sands Bethlehem property is built on the largest brownfield site in the country. The area was remediated in accordance with the site-specific environmental standards. During demolition, more than 22,500 tons of steel was sent to local recyclers. The environmentally responsible practices extend to the day-to-day operations of the property as part of the resort’s sustainability program called Sands ECO360. Energy efficient lighting is installed throughout the property and efficient water fixtures are in every room. The resort has a robust recycling program in place to recycle common products like paper and plastic, but also

more unique items like hotel room soap, shampoos and conditioners, wood, and plant material. To keep the momentum going, Sands Bethlehem sets aggressive targets every year to save energy, waste, and water. “By participating in the Earth Hour this year, we are hoping to raise awareness about protecting our natural environment,” said Megan Verholy, co-chair of the Sands Bethlehem sustainability program, “We are excited to challenge our Team Members to join us in this event by turning off all non-essential lights for an hour as well.”

What’s In For Outdoors

(NAPS)—If you want to get more enjoyment out of your yard, you can consider creating attractive outdoor spaces that are both easy to take care of and good for the environment. American homeowners are increasingly drawn to adding outdoor rooms for entertaining and recreation on their properties. That’s what the most recent Residential Landscape Architecture Trends survey conducted by the American Society of Landscape Architects discovered. The survey results also show demand for both sustainable and low-maintenance design. Landscape architects who specialize in residential design were asked to rate the expected popularity of a variety of residential outdoor design elements. The category of outdoor living spaces, defined

as kitchens and entertainment spaces, received a 94.5 percent rating as somewhat or very popular. Ninety-seven percent of respondents rated fire pits and fireplaces as somewhat or very in demand, followed by grills, seating and dining areas, and lighting. Decorative water elements— including waterfalls, ornamental pools and splash pools—were predicted to be in demand for home landscapes. Spas and pools are also popular. Terraces, patios and decks are also high on people’s lists. Americans prefer practical yet striking design elements for their gardens including lowmaintenance landscapes and native plants. In addition, more people are opting for food and vegetable gardens, including orchards and vineyards. Good To Know If you’re thinking of joining them, a few food-growing facts and hints may help: •Food gardens can be easy, rewarding and sustainable. For starters, you can use fallen leaves in autumn and grass clippings in spring and summer as mulch and weed suppressant. •Perennial plants can be low maintenance—they come back every year without replanting. Some great examples include asparagus, blueberries, blackberries and rhubarb. •Herbs can make for an especially sustainable food garden, as many prefer hot and dry areas of your yard, with chives, sage and tarragon returning every year.

What does it mean when a halo is seen around the sun or moon? There’s a good chance this indicates the approaching of a warm front. Halos are formed when the sun or moon shines through ice clouds. Ice clouds are high up and these angel hair or wispy clouds are what produce the halo effect. Warm fronts

And thus when halos are seen, it’s a very good bet cirrus ice clouds herald the coming of a warm front. A cold front would bring in lower clouds first since a cold front moves over the earth slanting backward at the leading edge.
