Moore Twsp. to lease Two vehicles for police By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Moore Township’s Board of Supervisors on May 7 voted to lease two new vehicles for the township police department from New Holland Auto Group. They are a 2013 Dodge Charger at $33,186 and a 2013 Ford Expedition at $38,404. Both will be equipped with a camera. Financing the cars will be through Susquehanna Bank. One present car will be used as a detective’s vehicle, while another will be used as a township vehicle. Action on Laws Solicitor David Backenstoe reviewed for the supervisors a proposed ordinance dealing with the Moore Township trash collection site. The facility is for Moore Township residents only and will accept yard waste consisting of sticks, weeds and leaves, but no grass. Residents only can also pick up mulch from the site at the township building.

Those persons or contractors from outside of the township who violate the ordinance would be subject to fines ranging from $250 to $600, with municipal employees enforcing it. The board voted to advertise the ordinance. Three other ordinances that were advertised were approved at last Tuesday’s meeting. One repeals the Park Board that was responsible for overseeing Moore Township Appalachian Park; another amends the Environmental Advisory Council ordinance so that now they will take on the park; and a third amends the township ordinance defining a solar energy system and a solar facility based on the amount of panels and energy. The EAC will groom existing trails in Appalachian Park, and permission was given for an Eagle Scout to put markers Continued on page 9

MetroTek reportedly ready To build two solar systems

By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Published reports indicate that MetroTek, the solar energy company in Kunkletown, is ready to embark on installing solar arrays at two area schools. Their company president, Eric Abeshaus, has said that MetroTek hopes to install solar panels at both Lehigh and Moore elementary schools in Lehigh Township and Moore Township, both part of the Northampton Area School District. They feel that they can now go ahead with their plans

since they have cleared legal issues through the courts. However, there may still be one more obstacle, since Lehigh Township’s Board of Supervisors voted on May 7 to hire legal counsel to take still another appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Northampton Area School Board will be meeting on Monday, May 20, at 6 p.m., and this is expected to be a major topic on their agenda. MetroTek’s plans were to put in 7,000 panels covering four acres at Lehigh Elementary and 4,200 panels at Moore Elementary.

Gilroy and Collins lead at Bath Revitalization 5K

By: Alice Wanamaker The Home News

The third annual Revitalization Run and Walk was held at Firemen's Park and through-out the borough of Bath last Saturday. The rain stopped and the sun came out long enough for runners and walkers to participate in the 3.1-mile race. Pulling out in front of the pack of runners was Ryan Gilroy who finished in 18 minutes and 34 seconds. Gilroy had an early lead and held it finishing far in front of other runners. Trisha Collins led as overall female finishing in 27 minutes and 35 seconds. And for the second year in a row, Borough Manager Tom Petrucci took second place overall, finishing in 20 minutes and 51 seconds. Thirty-five runners and walkers departed Firemen’s Park at 9:30 a.m. The open road course took runners and walkers safely through the borough and challenged them on the final stretch of uphill roadway as they came back to Firemen's Park on North Chestnut St. After they crossed the finish line, runners were able to relax and recoup at the park with refreshments and light snacks provided by event sponsors. Prizes were awarded to top finishers in age brackets broken down by male and female. Continued on page 14

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip Here we are in the middle of May already. How time does fly. It turned cool again on Monday and Tuesday, even with threats of frost overnight. The weather was great for the 5K run and walk on Saturday. I didn’t get to go though, since I was under the weather, but I hear most everybody had a great time. It was beautiful for Mother’s Day, too. . .Dartball players are done playing for the season, I hear, but are ready to feast at the annual banquet this Wednesday at the Newburg U.C.C. church. . . . The state Legion bowling tournament finished up last weekend, too, and local bowlers did all right. . . . Hats off to the East Allen Township firefighters on their new truck and the ceremony they had to show it off last week. Fire engines have come a long way over the years, and the volunteer firefighters everywhere around here are all doing a courageous job as they fight fires and do

rescue work. They all deserve a big pat on the back! . . . .Best of luck to the Northampton High School girls’ softball team as they start their tournament in the Lehigh Valley Conference. It never ceases to amaze me how the girls throw those softballs so fast they get strikeouts galore, even no-hitters. . . . Glad to see that things are moving right along, so that we oughta have a new pavilion at Keystone Park this summer. Let’s hope this one holds up against any future super storms. It was a shame to see the old one go that Jim Hartigan and his anniversary committee worked so hard for . . . . Speaking of anniversaries, I hear a book on the 275th should be coming off the presses real soon. Barry Fenstermaker, Fi Mirabito and the rest of the committee are excited about that. . . .And, while I think of it, Fi is running for mayor in next week’s primary election, so I’m sure she’s ex-

cited about that. Didn’t hear of any opposition as yet. Don Wunderler isn’t running as I get it. He did a great job during his term as Bath’s top executive. First class all the way. . . . I hope we don’t get frost, ‘cause the Governor Wolf Society is planning a big garden event this weekend, and there should be lots of nice flowers and plants to show people. . . . Sgt. Mike McGonigle from the Lehigh Township police had a graduation for his D.A.R.E. students up at that school a couple weeks ago, and this Tuesday Northampton’s Chief Ron Morey had another for the sixth graders at the Catholic regional school over there. Congrats to the youngsters who took their lessons seriously, and congrats to the local police for leading such a meaningful program to keep the youngsters on the straight and narrow without drugs or alcohol. . . .I hear more than 5,000 pounds of food were collected by the mail carriers in Bath last weekend. The food bank here and other places can use every bit of it. . . . Elmira made halupkies for supper, so it’s time to put the feed bag on. See ya!!

Fight Like A Girl National Program Available in our Area Dawn Bittner, Fight Like A Girl Instructor, is on a mission to help the women and kids of our community and wants you to come out and learn how to Fight Like A Girl. You may not think that sounds very powerful, but it is. “Kym Rock’s Fight Like A Girl” program is a ten-year-proven program that teaches women and kids to think smarter and have the skills and awareness to keep themselves out of dangerous situations. Fight Like A Girl also trains women and girls to get away from an attacker, abuser or abductor - something we all need to know and practice. There are 77 million victims of abuse every year in the United States and 1 in 3 women and children in our country become victims of violent abuse. Every day, over 2000 kids are abducted in the United States. Dawn Bittner is part of the Fight Like A Girl movement to stop the rampant violence in our community and Dawn says, “This program is important! Fight Like A Girl not only teaches personal violence prevention, but has a fitness allure that brings women together to empower them in their safety and helps them protect their kids. We’re bringing this fun, simple, effective program to you right here in Northampton County so we can make a difference together.” A seminar will be held this Saturday May 18 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at MyFitnesCourt, 120 S. Walnut St., Bath. Pre-registration is available on their website (myfitnesscourt.com).

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

What’s the Deal? Isn’t it amazing that the things we want to do, we usually don’t, and the things we don’t want to do, we actually do! You know this is true! In the context of health and longevity, this can be frustrating and wreak havoc on our bodies. Why is this the case?! I recently heard a gentleman discussing that the single biggest reason for failure in achieving our weight loss and health goals is that we generally make commitments when we ‘feel’ one way and break our commitments when we ‘feel’ another. That is a pretty good perspective. The thought here is that we may say, for example, that “today I am going to start eating my vegetables and stay away from fast foodâ€?. This conviction and determination may have been made while it was a beautiful spring morning, the birds chirping, the flowers blooming, etc. You FEEL great, happy, ready for the new you. This is it. I am going to do this once and for all‌ Then reality comes crashing through. You have a bad day at work, it’s raining, someone backs into your car, your pet is sick, the kids come home with bad grades, etc‌suddenly you find your mood is in the gutter and you are spoon deep into Turkey Hill ice cream and a jar of chocolate syrup. It’s all over before you know what you have done! Same is true with gearing up to exercise. It’s easy to exercise when you’re full of energy, happy, rested and ready to go. You are so happy and feeling great! But what occurs when you are tired, a lit-

tle achy, stressed from work, running late? Well, you probably are in the dumps again and skip the exercise. You make the promise of course to get back to it tomorrow, of course. We all have been down this road, haven’t we? It’s comical, in fact. What we really don’t want to do, we actually do and vice versa. It’s bizarre if you think about it. The disturbing point is that most people, through it all, will mentally beat themselves up day in and day out because of it. “You’re a failure, you can’t do anything right, why bother anymore�. Self-deprecation won’t get you anywhere. In fact it will make you sicker. Take time today, within an even keel type mood, and consider where you find yourself today and where you would like to be in six months, a year, five years from now. DO NOT let your feelings, your mood, or your situations sidetrack you from these very specific, and attainable goals. “Natural Perspectives� is a health commentary only and does not claim to diagnose and/or make treatment recommendations. Always seek the advice of your health care professional.

lation I am co-sponsoring which would promote outdoor activities and create recreational opportunities by protecting landowners who open their lands to public recreational use. House Bill 544 may now be taken up by the full House. The 138th District, and Pennsylvania in general, is home to many outdoor enthusiasts, and has a great deal of land for them to enjoy. House Bill 544 would increase recreational opportunities for them by enabling more lands to be open to public access. House Bill 544 would amend the state’s recreational use of land liability law to expand its protections for landowners by ensuring that legal fees are covered for property owners who are found not liable for injuries to recreational users. The bill would expand the law’s language to cover additional recreational activities such as snowmobiling, ATV and motorcycle riding and would cover man-made property improvements like bridges, boat docks, ramps, fishing piers and paved and unpaved trails. Our landowners find themselves in a situation of having nothing to gain and everything to lose when they open their lands with the law as it is currently written. This bill will enable more of them to open their property to added recreational opportunities by providing them the protections they need. Questions about this and any other legislative issues should be directed to my Nazareth office at (610) 7462100.

It’s Little League time! For loyal parents and grandparents it’s time to stand out in the freezing cold, get burned on a sunny day or sit there in the pouring rain just to get a glimpse of a hit, home run or a great catch. I was driving by a little league field last week and all I heard were Cheers, Cheers, Cheers. My guess is that someone’s child hit the big one over the fence. Then the next day I went to a local restaurant and was served the most delicious coffee, I told the waitress how wonderful it was and she told me that I can buy it there, free trade, organic, ground for me or I can grind it at home. CHEERS, not only did I pay for breakfast, two cups of coffee, muffins to go, but I purchased some Joe for the road. Hello, she gets it! What does that mean? It means that someone in the restaurant family has trained their staff June 22nd. If the homeowners are not home, you are invited to leave donations on the front porch. Save the date, this year’s book sale will be held on June 27 from 5-8 p.m. and June 28 & 29 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

to up-sell their customers, CHEERS. So, the question is, how do you get your staff to drink the customer service kool-aid. Here’s some ideas... • Reward them for their efforts • Raise the expectations, one for all and all for one • Make sure the rest of the staff knows who’s selling • Appreciate them; not only as employees but as people • Come up with new ideas to push product through the door Baseball says it all, it’s a team effort, they may have a team star at a game but, overall, the whole team benefits by the efforts of one. CHEERS, and the game is never short of CHEERS. On occasion, a fan gets irritable but so do your customers. Does that stop the game? No, it’s just a little spill while you are running into home plate. Cheering for your staff is not only good for the moral of the team, it’s a major league idea.

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie

BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷ It’s amazing that something is not being done, or even proposed, to make Major League baseball games accurately umpired. In every Major League game umpires make many mistakes on calls and won’t propose to have TV review of controversial calls. In other sports suspected mistaken calls are subject to television review, corrected if found to be mistaken. But

Northampton Kids Girls softall team In LVC tournament

Northampton High School’s girls softball team (19-1 overall and 13-1 in the Lehigh Valley Conference), opened their playoff tournament on Monday evening against Emmaus (14-6 overall, 9-5 LVC). The Konkrete Kids defeated the Green Hornets 2-0 on April 9 on a one-hitter, but on Monday night Emmaus won 6-2 in 10 innings. They are led by hardthrowing senior Marly Laubach, who during the regular season has pitched 12 shutouts and three no-hitters. The LVC championship game will be played tonight (Thursday) at 5 p.m. at Pates Field. Northampton beat Emmaus for the LVC title in 2007. After graduation next month, Laubach will begin her studies at Penn State, and no doubt be on their softball team.

not in baseball. Plate umpires continue to miss many calls in every game, some quite obviously mistaken. Yet Commissioner Bud Selig proposes nothing to make the game more fair to players. Today science is so advanced plate umpires could have a hand-held device which instantly reveals whether a pitch was in or out of the televised monitored strike zone. In football umpire calls are subject to such review, also in basketball. Yet in what many see as the national pastime, baseball, every game is loaded with missed calls at the plate and sometimes in the field. It’s past time for a commissioner to address this shameful problem.

Local resort Receives national Awards Blue Mountain Resort received two awards at the National Ski Area Association’s (NSAA) National Convention and Tradeshow last week in Palm Springs, CA. The NSAA recognized Blue Mountain with two top honors for ‘Best Social Media Marketing’ and the ‘Best Overall Safety Program’ awards. The awards are presented annually to ski resorts nationwide, both large and small, for their successful marketing and safety programs that ultimately help grow the sports of skiing and snowboarding. 

The ‘Best Social Media Marketing’ award was based on the resort’s facebook, twitter and strategic marketing campaign. Judges reviewed print, electronic, and interactive marketing and advertising strategies, considering both the creative and promotional elements. NSAA Marketing awards are designed promote growth of the industry and create overall exposure. The awards recognize the best in ski area marketing campaigns.

Pa. Trappers to Hold 76th Annual State Rendezvous

Over The Doors

“So you’re a painter?” “Yep.” “Paint houses, I presume.” “Nope, paint men and women.” “Oh--I see, an artist.” “Nope, just paint ‘Men’ over one door and ‘Women’ over the other door.”

Old West who after a long winter of trapping in isolated areas, would meet at a rendezvous location to sell their fur and talk and see other trappers and fur traders. Almost every state in the U.S. holds a State Rendezvous where trappers meet with old friends and buy supplies for the upcoming season, where there are plenty of dealers selling supplies. The PA Trappers held a state rendezvous every year since 1938, except for 1943 to 1945. PA003267

www.bickertshvac.com

The PA Trappers Assoc. got started in 1936 and the first meeting took place on June 25, 1938. Both the Certificate of Charter and the original ByLaws as amended are used today. The PTA is divided into 11 Districts, with 5 to 7 counties per district. The PTA is the largest and oldest trapping organization in the U.S. today. Some accomplishments of the PTA are: in 1976 the PTA drew up an outline which led to the present day Trapper Ed. Program. In 1986, Trapper training became mandatory in the State. The PTA makes recommendations to the Game Commission on Trapping related issues and season and bag limits. PTA also contributed to the restocking of the river otters and fishers in the State. PTA strives to educate people by using displays and demonstrations at sports shows, and county and state fairs. We also give out free literature to schools, libraries, conservation groups. This year’s Rendezvous will host trapping dealers, craft people, outdoor clubs and tailgaters selling all types of outdoor items. There will be raffles, good food, an auction on Friday night, and a dance on Saturday night. There will be demonstrations throughout the four day show. There will be primitive camping and electric and water hook-ups. Come out and see what the PTA is all about. For more info on the Show, call Scot at 610-863-9759.

Outdoor Living Hunkering Down With Home Improvement: 3 Sensible Projects (NewsUSA) - One thing for sure in this unpredictable economy is that homeowners are staying put. In fact, most people do not plan to move any time soon, according to a 2011 Harris Interactive poll. This shift from sell to stay is why it pays for homeowners to look beyond resale value when making home improvement decisions. As Designer and HGTV Personality Lori Dennis explains, "People today are looking more

holistically at home remodeling, choosing projects that add comfort, efficiency and functionality." In this new era of home improvement, three projects stand out. Window Replacement Nothing does more to enhance the look and feel of a home than windows -- they are visible inside and outside and can add comfort by helping to eliminate drafts and regulate temperatures. They can

also pay off as an investment. Advancements in energy-efficient windows are helping homeowners save 30 percent or more on en-

ergy bills, not to mention recoup about 70 percent of the cost of window replacement. The latest window designs include a combination of energy efficiency, durability and aesthetics. The Essence Series from Milgard, for example, comes Energy Star rated and features a beautiful wood interior and durable fiberglass exterior. Outdoor Spaces According to a survey by the

American Institute of Architects, more than 60 percent of architects say they have seen an increase in outdoor living space requests. Since owners are thinking long-term, patios, decks, sunrooms and other spaces contribute to both the experience at home and its property value. It's possible to earn back 50 to 75 percent of the cost of your outdoor addition. Kitchen Remodeling The kitchen is the heart of the home and an opportunity to set the tone for style and functionality. Two of the most popular ways to expand kitchen work space are to add an island/peninsula and natural lighting. Modern kitchen solutions feature cabinets and drawers that open, organize and spin in convenient ways. Homeowners can recoup about 70 percent of their kitchenremodeling costs.

in N o seyNaza reth Dear Nazareth, April showers sure came in with a vengeance! My house was creaking in places that made me think of the “Wizard of OZ,” but of course not as big as the storm of Hurricane Sandy last October, thank God! In the morning all was well in the yard, no leaks in the roof, and then I went to my basement pantry to retrieve some paper towels and oh no! The carpet sloshed! My sump pump was on duty, but the cord was laying over the float and now I had a

pool in my basement! At the last WINN (Women in Nazareth Networking) a Nazareth Area Chamber function, I met Wendy Gonzalez who works for SERVPRO in Allentown. Thankfully I found her information in a pile on top of my refrigerator! It was early in the morning but I planned to leave a “May Day” voicemail! Surprise, they are open 24 hours a day-365 days a year! After taking my information I was scheduled immediately. One of their service people was already finishing another customer in my area and would come after they were

finished. Two hours later my rescuers arrived with equipment to extract the water. SERVPRO also suggested disinfection products that would stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms. They left me with drying equipment to prevent swelling and warping of my floors and walls and also a dehumidifier. What a relief to have someone come and take over my crisis! Thank you SERVPRO!

I am a resident of Moore Township and have been for over 42 years where I have lived with my husband of 42 years. We have two children, two grandsons, and two stepgranddaughters. We live on a 52 acre farm that has been in my husband’s family since 1932. I am retired from the Allentown State Hospital after 35 years of service where I worked as a Purchasing Agent (a buyer) for the hospital. I have experience working with budgets, contracts, and working with the state system. I work at the Township building and have done so for the past 8 years – three days a week. I am an Administrative Assistant (Secretary) for the Planning Commission, Zoning Hearing Board, manage all escrow accounts, help the Zoning Officer and the Supervisors as needed. I type the minutes for the Planning Commission. I am secretary for the Land Preservation Board. It is fair to say that I know something about everything that is going on in the Township. My main concerns are for the welfare of the Township and preserving our farms and open space for future generations. My children live in Moore Township as do my grandchildren, who attend the Moore Elementary School. There are currently three working Supervisors and if elected I do not wish to work full-time, but continue as a part-timer (with no benefits). I will continue to work with the other two Supervisors to keep communication between the Municipal Officials and public open and transparent and to maintain our extremely low tax rate, which is the lowest in Northampton County, with a full time Police Department. Again experience and qualifications matter for Supervisor. Paid for by Lois Kerbacher for Supervisor Committee

shopped at Sam’s Club on Easton/Nazareth HwyRt.248? I became a “Business Plus’ member which allows me into the store for “early shopping.” Paper products were on my shopping list, but it can be so relaxing to casually walk down the aisles and discover other things I “didn’t know I needed.” From TV’s, grills, office and home furnishings. Tires, laptops & phones to swing sets! Sam’s Club also has a large selection of produce and frozen items and I love their freshcut meats. At the front of the store was a large selection of patio furniture, I’m was just looking but a beautiful 60” natural slate table with 6 swivel, padded, stool chairs was so inviting I had to sit and rest. That’s when Don the store manager stopped over to introduce himself and wondered if I had any questions. I appreciated his information without any pressure tactics. The furniture was very tempting and remembering it was not on my shopping list, I told Don that I was just “window shopping” and left there feeling pleased that I stuck to my list today! Doesn’t shopping make you hungry? I made a call to a friend who was to take a lunch break and she suggested a new restaurant in Nazareth called Las Cazuelas (848 Nazareth Pike- Rt.191) an authentic Mexican Restaurant. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The café is clean and inviting with friendly and patient staff. We had a hard time choosing from many of the tasty items yet the waitress was happy to explain. We shared a Flauta -a fried stuffed tortilla with chicken topped with queso fresco and the Lengua Taco. Filled with rich, tender beef! The dessert menu offers Fried Ice Cream! We had to try that! Yum! On the empty table near us there was a notice announcing the 2013 Open House for the Jacobsburg Historical Society (402 Henry Rd.) Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5. I love discovering the historical roots of the Nazareth area! All buildings will be open from noon to 4:00 p.m.; including the PA long Rifle Museum with the Bushkill

Township Anniversary photo exhibit, the John Joseph Henry Mansion, the Henry Summer Kitchen, Nicholas Hawk Gun shop, and the new education center. All this is offered with FREE admission the whole weekend! A fundraiser for the JHS Gardens is a annual plant sale May 4th, 9-1 p.m. Check their website: www.jacobsburg.org. Last month I asked if anyone could refer me to someone who could come up with travel ideas for a cruise. I want to thank my readers (F.M., M.N., N.K., M.A., T.P.) who responded by suggesting AAA Northampton County (3914 Hecktown Rd., Easton). I just walked in to their convenient office and was referred to an agent named Mary. My cousin from Virginia is traveling with me and we are meeting at the Baltimore, Maryland port, so no airfare is needed. Mary gave us great rates and arranged our seven night trip on a Bahamas Cruise leaving June 7th! You’ll hear about my adventure in June! This is so exciting! Oh, by the way I kept thinking about the patio set at Sam’s Club and went back after lunch. (I just couldn’t help myself!) I met another sales person named Justin and he was great explaining how we can arrange delivery and setup! It will be fun to invite the neighbors over this summer and let me cook for them for a change. Now I need patio accessories to create atmosphere more shopping! Please contact me through Tina Smith at the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce, Attn: Nosey in Nazareth, tina@nazarethchamber.com. May flowers will be glorious!

New Book: Grace of the Cast off Cross The Decision is Always Ours Reverend Peter Unger of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Farmersville has published a book his father documented while in Japanese POW camps. It’s a griping saga of hope. Overview: In March of 1942 7,000 American, British, and Dutch Japanese POWs on the island of Java were ordered into camps. Dolf Unger, a Corporal in the Dutch Royal Army was one of these soldiers. Newly married with an infant daughter, Dolf was not to see his wife and daughter for over three years. This book is a compilation of articles, letters, and mementoes documenting his camp experiences. Dolf' s story is not just one of survival, but of spiritual transformation. For Dolf this transformation began one cold fall day when he was forced to shovel scrap metal. In a moment of utter despair; as he cried out silently to God, he kicked a pile of scrap metal. God's answer came in the form of a perfectly shaped four-inch iron cross, which landed on his boot. Dolf soon became involved in a Christian community in the camp called "The Church Under The

Christian that we can experience the saving, and liberating love of Christ even when our external circumstances seem hopeless. How to Order: E-Book Kindle Edition just released for $3.99 on amazon. com Book Price is $16.95 and may be ordered by sending a check to the church – St. John’s United Church of Christ, 8065 William Penn Highway, Easton, PA 180452938. Shipping is included – no extra shipping charge. Cross". The spiritual growth and transformation of this community of sick, starving, and often beaten men offers a greater context to Dolf’s own spiritual Journey. That Dolf's witness and that of "The Church Under The Cross" speaks so unerringly to the church and culture of our own time hints that God's providential hand is at work here. It witnesses to the many churches to mired in outdated tradition, and legalistic doctrine to the meet the challenges of a cynical materialistic culture. It also offers a powerful witness to the individual

News Sermonette The Rev. Lamar H. Handwerk Pastor, St. Peter’s U.C.C., Seemsville

Life’s Picnic “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusteth in him (Psalm 34:8 KJV).” Before we start piling up the plastic plates--and the presumed calories--there’s a few lessons we can learn from picnics. Guess what--they’re like life! (1) Work hard! (Have you discovered that dealing with life--its problems and relationships, its inner struggles and temptations--is hard work?) (2) Watch out for the bugs! (Anybody around you that’s bugging you? Better be well supplied with some “anti-bug-spray” from above--His love, patience and grace!) (3) Wait for the food (Ever have to wait for God’s blessings to waft your way? You “smell” it coming, cookin’ on the grill, but “Lord, the wait is endless!”) OK, let’s be realistic! Some days life is NO picnic, and those are the days when we make our own, at “the table of the Lord,” just “Jesus and me,” feeding on His Word, finding strength and grace for the journey, fellowship in His presence and renewed faith to share with a hungry world around us--tomorrow! Those are the special, private dining times where we find His special love and grace to sustain and support us through the hard days of our lives. Whatever your situation, He’s there to help us--with the work, the bugs and yes, even the waiting! So let’s fire up the grill, set the table, bring on the food--don’t forget the bug spray--it’s picnic time everywhere! And with the help of our “Heavenly Chef” who oversees the whole operation, we will enjoy life to the fullest, find a bountiful supply at HIS table, and then be able to share it with our world. Invite someone to your life’s picnic today--and have a great day!

Know The Weather What changes colors of clouds--which sometimes appear dark and almost purple and at other times appear white as snow? The truth is clouds are as colorless as water, which they are composed of, or as glass. It’s light that colors or darkens clouds. In a bright clear sky, the sun shines on moisture and it appears white. Take ice as an example; grind it up and it appears white. Why? That’s because the many tiny pieces scatter light in all directions, all those little bits reflect light. Clouds become dark when sunshine is blotted out in their vicinity. So, it’s the lack of sunshine (light) which seems to color clouds dark and even purple. Clouds can sometimes reflect darker colors of the earth when sunshine isn’t present.

Reibman Announces plan

Standing in front of a plaque that bears his name at the entrance to Commerce Center Boulevard, Glenn Reibman rolled out his plan for Job Creation and Economic Development during a news conference earlier today in South Bethlehem. He was introduced by West Easton Mayor Gerry Gross. “The last available tract of this former Bethlehem Steel property was just sold,” said Reibman. “As County Executive, my administration redeveloped this site, then the largest Brownfield site in the country. The building of Commerce Center Boulevard brought jobs for our citizens and prosperity for our families’ future. It is the linchpin to the greatest Economic Development project in the history of the Lehigh Valley.” Reibman pointed to his other Economic Development successes like the Lehigh Valley Industrial Park VI in Bethlehem Township, the Arcadia East Industrial Park in East Allen Township and the Portland Industrial Park outside Portland in the far northeastern corner of the County. Reibman also explained that the neighboring Lehigh Valley Industrial Park VII was built due the success of the development along Commerce Center Boulevard. He also discussed the Bethworks project, which was created when Reibman utilized the Lehigh Valley’s very first Tax Increment Financing, or TIF. Bethworks includes the Sands Casino, Steelstacks, WLVT-TV, Riverport and Union Station, which was refurbished and converted to a St. Luke’s outpatient medical facility. “I have the experience having made the initial investments in projects like Commerce Center Boulevard, which was the framework for the development of the vacant Bethlehem Steel Property. My administration achieved the results as these investments led to the creation of thousands of family sustaining jobs here and throughout Northampton County,” Reibman stated. Glenn formulated his plan through discussions with residents, meetings with local elected officials and through

his experience on the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, which led to a cohesive vision building on the success that began during his first administration. “My objectives are: To Expand the Tax Base by Encouraging Businesses to Locate in the County, Fund Infrastructure and Transportation Upgrades, Improve Job Training Programs at Local Schools and Colleges, Form Economic Partnerships with Surrounding Counties, and to Conduct a Feasibility Study on an I-78 Interchange at Route 378,” explained Reibman. Reibman then detailed how he planned to implement his Job Creation and Economic Development initiatives, “I plan to bring back the Department of Economic Development and hire an Economic Development Director to bring jobs to Northampton County. I will work with the state and federal government to create new tax incentive programs and to utilize existing programs like Allentown’s NIZ, KOZ, LERTA and others to help spur economic development.” Joining Reibman was North Catasauqua Councilwoman Michele Hazzard, who reiterated the Economic Development success of the Reibman Administrations by stating, “Let’s not forget that there would be no Sands Casino or another Lehigh Valley Industrial Park without the initial investments that Glenn Reibman made well over a decade ago. What we see here today are the results that Glenn achieved, and he will continue these unprecedented investments in our future through his Economic Development Plan, and that is why I am fully supporting Glenn Reibman for Northampton County Executive.” Reibman laid out his vision for a more efficient procedure to entice businesses to invest in Northampton County. He explained, “Lastly, I will create a county system for a ‘business friendly’ Economic Development Incubator which will give prospective business owners a place to meet the right people who can provide the necessary information a business owner needs and will help guide them through the local process to get their business up and running in Northampton County.”
