Great weather enjoyed By runners and walkers By BILL HALBFOERSTER and ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News
Forty-nine runners and walkers sprinted out of Keystone Park right on time Saturday morning as the first annual Revitalization 5K Run was sponsored by the Bath Borough Business & Community Partnership. It was a cool and breezy but clear day, ideal for running or walking the streets of Bath. Winning the run was Adam Edwards in a time of 17:20. He was followed by Rich Ryan, who finished at 17:31. The runners gathered in a pack at Keystone Park and at the final countdown were off and running up the Mulberry Street hill. They continued down into the borough, going along Chestnut, Walnut, Northampton and Allen Streets, and returning to the start / finish line at Keystone Park – a total of three miles. All along the route they were well protected by both fire police and officers of the Colonial Regional Police Department. Bath Firefighters and Bethlehem EMS ambulances were on standby in case anyone needed help. At the conclusion of the race the runners and walkers went to the Keystone Park pavilion where they had plenty of water and foods, energy builders, that were donated by PC Beverage, Giant Food Stores, Weis Makets, Fresh Market and Texas Roadhouse. The organizers would like to thank everyone who came
out on Saturday to participate, the cheerleaders who lined the streets of Bath, the many sponsors who helped make the day a success and the volunteers who assisted and donated their time. The committee is looking to make the 5K in the borough an annual event. The BBCP is looking forward to the third season of the Bath Farmers Market on May 20 from 3 -7 p.m. and every Friday throughout the summer until September 23. You can find more information about the organization online through the borough’s website or find them on Facebook! Winners’ List

After brief public hearings, with no comment from the audience, Bath Borough Council on Monday approved two ordinances, which are updates of the previous ordinances. The first was the Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance (SALDO). Solicitor Blake Marles said that the borough codified its ordinances in 1995, and this new pact re-adopts the ordinance. Changes in the zoning ordinance were also approved in a re-adoption of that law. Changes had previously been made in 2002 and the official zoning mp had been revised in 2009. Other Matters The meeting was one of the shortest ever, and continued only in executive session in a personnel item. • Borough Manager Richard Klotz reported that street potholes are being cold patched.
• Councilwoman Carol Bear-Heckman reported that the Steckel House has been photographed by Early American Life magazine and an article will be published in August. • Klotz said contracts and inspection will be going forward for Monocacy Park Streetscape II. He is not seeking two additional grants, but is asking consideration of the $42,000 Northampton County grant. • J. P. Mascaro & Sons will have a new brochure on hauling and recycling for the residents. • Real estate taxes are coming in very well, topping over $100,000. Klotz said they are the most stable of all taxes. What was not collected from 2009 will go to the Tax Claims Bureau. Liens are filed against those properties. • Mayor Donald Wunderler reported a busy few weeks, including participating in the opening of the Bath Area Fish Committee contest for chil-
dren; Clean-Up Day, and getting set for the 275th anniversary pig roast. • Klotz questioned about the Siegfried Cemetery off W. Main Street, which was bought back in 1979 by the late Ruth Knecht. It has been maintained by the borough. He will seek more information from Mrs. Marjorie Rehrig. • Fire and ambulance reports for March and April were provided by Fire Chief Ed Demchak. For March, it showed 6 fire calls in Bath and 4 in East Allen, requiring 30 man-hours; EMS calls, 12 hours; school, 82.5; administration, 240; equipment repair, 20; meetings, 34; work detail, 10, for a total of 536.5 man-hours. In April there were 6 fire calls in Bath, 25 man-hours; EMS call, 3; drills, 34; school, 85.5; equipment repair, 15; meetings, 35; work detail, 56.5; fire police, 15, 15, for a total of 560 man-hours. It was noted that Bethlehem Township is being used for mutual aid.
Nazareth Council hears What CRPD has to offer
By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
At the invitation of Mayor Fred Daugherty, Nazareth Borough Council and a number of residents in the audience heard from Colonial Regional Police Chief Roy Seiple on Thursday night what CRPD has to offer – if they are interested in a merger. Also in the audience were members of the CRPD Commission, Glenn Walbert, Eric Nagle, and a past member, Robert Kucsan, as well as fellow CRPD officers. Through a series of some 50 power point slides, Seiple said that the regional department, founded in 1995 with three member municipalities, offers both efficient and effective police service. The department started with eight officers and now has 24. Should Nazareth later decide to consolidate its department with Colonial Regional, Seiple said there would be additional officers to handle the extra workload. In the past year, CRPD had 9,300 recordable incidents in which it’s officers responded in Bath Borough, Lower Nazareth and Hanover Townships, and under contract
with Chapman Borough. The $3-million budget is shared by all three municipalities on a pro rata basis according to
size. The officers work 12-hour shifts, with four and five ofContinued on page 10

The Walmart Case The case brought against the giant chain Walmart worries many on both sides of the issue. Few if any excuse a lower pay rate for females doing the same work as males. The Supreme Court will decide the issue once and for all and no case involving a million and a half current and former employees has become the focus of so many Americans. Lower courts have thus far sided with females seeking compensation for what they see as part sexual discrimination. If the high court rules in their favor, the cost to Walmart will be staggering, over a billion dollars. Is there another side to this case? Some believe the federal courts do not have the authority to tell private employers how much they pay their employees. If they pay men more than women for the same job, that is discrimination, it’s admitted. But it’s also argued the private enterprise right of an employer includes the right to decide on pay scales, none of thegovernment’s business. The current Supreme Court is considered by most traditional and slightly conservative but it also includes two women. Thus the decision, later this year, will establish pay scale rights of employers, a history-making decision.
Opinion Bush, Obama, and Osama: America’s Hour of Choosing By Paul G. Kengor “In Bin Laden Announcement, Echoes of 2007 Obama Speech,” declared the headline in The New York Times. It’s difficult to find a newspaper that has demonstrated a worst pro-Obama and anti-Bush bias than The New York Times, especially when dealing with the War on Terror. And so, I expected a headline like this in the Times. When I searched Google this morning, looking for a text of President Obama’s statement on the death of Osama bin Laden, the Times headline was the first thing that popped up. That’s too bad. A better banner would have been, “In Bin Laden Announcement, Echoes of 2001 Bush Speech.” That’s what I immediately thought when I heard the stunning statement by President Obama announcing the killing of Osama bin Laden. To wit, President Obama stated: Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden…. The American people did not choose this fight. It came to our shores, and started with the senseless slaughter of our citizens…. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies. We will be true to the values that make us who we are. And on nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to Al-Qaeda’s terror: Justice has been done…. Let us remember that we can do these things not just because of wealth or power, but because of who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Thank you. May God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America. For President Obama, it was a refreshing and surprising expression of American exceptionalism. More than that, President Obama’s words read like a punctuation, an exclamation point, on what President George W. Bush had said on September 14, 2001, during an unforgettable 9/11 memorial service at the majestic National Cathedral. Bush himself had organized the service. He picked the music, selected speakers, and carefully chose the words he delivered that afternoon. Bush had declared the day a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance. In preparing for his speech, he literally prayed that he could rise to the
occasion and deliver his talk meaningfully in keeping with the somberness of the occasion. “I prayed a lot before the speech,” he later told reporter Bill Sammon, “because I felt like it was a moment where I needed, well, frankly, for the good Lord to shine through.” Everyone in elite Washington was there: Former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford sat in the third pew, as did Al Gore. The Clinton family sat in the front pew. An ailing Billy Graham, in a poignant display, struggled to
address those gathered. President Bush approached the platform at 1:00 PM. He stated: We are here in the middle hour of our grief. So many have suffered so great a loss, and today we express our nation’s sorrow. We come before God to pray for the missing and the dead and for those who love them. On Tuesday our country was attacked with deliberate and massive cruelty. We have seen the images of fire and ashes and bent steel. Now come the Continued on page 3
News Sermonette The Rev. Lamar H. Handwerk
Pastor, St. Peter’s United Church of Christ Here is a light hearted presentation of what we all think about our moms, at different points in our lives. Don’t be too shocked moms and kid’s because we all have the same tendencies. 4 Years Of Age - My Mommy can do anything; 8 Years Of Age - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot 12 Years Of Age -My Mother doesn’t really know quite everything. 14 Years Of Age -Naturally, Mother doesn’t know that, either 16 Years Of Age -Mother? She’s hopelessly old-fashioned 18 Years Of Age -That old woman? She’s way out of date 25 Years Of Age -Well, she might know a little bit about it 35 Years Of Age -Before we decide, let’s get Mom’s opinion 45 Years Of Age -Wonder what Mom would have thought about it 65 Years Of Age -Wish, I could talk it over with Mom The truth is we all learn to appreciate our moms and to acknowledge their vital influence in our lives. The Bible tells us that we are to honor our mothers and the Bible is also very clear in referencing the importance of motherhood and the many acts that mothers perform on a daily basis for their children and their families. These actions need to be acknowledged and honored by others so that mothers will be encouraged to press on in their God given roles.

Here we are at the beginning of May already. Can you believe it?! Time marches on too fast, but I reckon there’s not much we can do about it, but go with the flow. Spring weather has been springish so far. Cool sometimes, rainy once in a while, and it’s even supposed to get up to 80 degrees on Tuesday. The spring flowers are liking it and the trees are turning greener and greener as the leaves pop out of their buds. . . .The big news across America and around the world no doubt was the that Osama bin Laden was killed by a team of Navy Seals on Sunday. So there were big demonstrations of people singing and yelling “U.S.A.!” as they were happy that public enemy number one has finally been found and eliminated after ten years of hiding. He caused thousands of deaths in New York, Washingron, D.C. and Pennsylvania. The fans at the Phillies game really got into the chant once they found out the news on their iPhones. . . . .I hear Carl “Spundy” Rehrig had an auto accident when somebody crashed into his car. There was damage, but luckily not a
scratch on Carl, which is great to hear. . . . The weather was great, too, on Saturday for the big race. They had almost 50 runners and walkers, I hear, and the first place runner came in at 17 minutes after going the three-mile route around town. Maybe they’ll get 100 runners next year, who knows. . . .Since it’s May I reckon the farmers market will be opening up soon down at Keystone Park. Always good to get some fresh fruits and veggies, right off the farm. . . . Gasoline prices are almost at the $4.00 mark. Glad I don’t live in Hawaii, even though it would be nice. Gas is $6.00 a gallon for regular on those islands. . . . Nice new sidewalks and a sturdy iron pole at the corner of Northampton & Walnut Streets. Now let a truck hit that! . . . . Church choirs are about to practice for the big Flag Day church service down at Christ UCC in town on Sunday, June 5th. That’s always a wonderful celebration. . . . Saw in last week’s paper that East Allen Township is getting ready for their yearly Summerfest. It’s earlier, I think, ‘cause last year they re-
ally suffered in the heat. . . . Happy birthday to the former Kate Michalgyk. She turned 100 last week. I hear the folks had a great party for her down at the Manor. . . . Dave Casey had a case of yawning on Monday. I hear he was down at the Phillies game on Sunday night that went 14 innings. He left when it was 12 innings, but still didn’t get home until after three in the morning. . . . He does the stats for dartball, and the teams are gonna have their banquet come next week down in Bethlehem. . . . . Think I’ll have a hamburger barbecue. You know what that is, Jimmy. . . . Have a great week, gang, and enjoy the spring.

Thanks, Moore Township! You have given me the opportunity to serve you! I will appreciate your continued support!
Six years ago, as a candidate for Supervisor of Moore Township the issues that I raised when I asked for your vote included: • Your right to expect your township government to spend your tax dollars wisely and effectively; • The preservation of the rural atmosphere of our township; • Dealing with issues and complaints when they occur, rather than during an election year; • The need for a Roadmaster who is courteous, prompt and available when working with our road problems. During the past six years, I have worked hard to live up to your trust in me. You have the right to know if I measured up to the promises that I made. You, the voters, are the judges. • Despite the economy and the serious impact on our revenue, I can report that we have the second lowest tax rate in Northampton County. I must also point out that I voted against the 1 mill tax increase that was passed in December. I am a fiscally conservative Democrat and I believe that tax increases should be enacted only in small amounts and as a last resort. • Considering our tax rate and the many services we provide, I believe we have done far more for much less. Moore Township provides many services, including a full time police force, recreational facilities, a farm preservation program, a successful and a free yard waste program. In addition, with over 100 miles of township roads to care for, we provide courteous, prompt and quality road maintenance. • During my six year term in office, I have helped to implement zoning changes which will preserve the rural character of our township. I have helped to create the Farm Preservation Board and the Environmental Advisory Council which have made farm preservation in our township a reality. • As Moore Township Supervisor, I have been an advocate for issues that concern you, including defeating plans by PPL to construct unsightly power lines and towers in our township. When two local congregations requested lighted signs for their churches, I supported their efforts. I have always supported the Moore Township Athletic Association for their many worthwhile endeavors.

‘Kate’ Haftel celebrates Her 100th birthday at party By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
With sparkles in her eyes and smiles of enjoyment, Catherine “Kate” (Michalgyk) Haftel celebrated her 100th birthday on Wednesday, April 27. A party was held for her at Alexandria Manor in Bath, where she is now residing. The room was filled with relatives and friends who wished her well and enjoyed the afternoon celebrating with her. Congratulatory messages were received from President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, and in a Pa. House of Representatives resolution signed by Rep. Marcia Hahn of the 138th District. They were read aloud by J. R. Peterson, who entertained for the party. Peterson brought back memories not only for Katie, but for most of the elderly
residents. He recalled the year 1911, the year Katie was born, noting historical events, and the births that year of Ronald Reagan, Mitch Miller, Roy Rogers, Lucille Ball, Ginger Rogers, Vaughn Monroe, and Gypsie Rose Lee. Also in 1911, the first aircraft carrier was launched, and a gallon of gas cost 3.2 cents; the Philadelphia Athletics beat the New York Giants in the World Series, and the first Indianapolis auto race was held, with the top speed 87 MPH. He sang songs from that year as well, like “You Great Big Beautiful Doll” and “Let Me Call You Sweetheart.” All of these things brought back memories for Katie, as she smiled at hearing of them. She also admitted doing the “Charleston”. Peterson continued to serenade her with songs of by-

WOMEN/SOCIAL gone days, putting on a lei and wearing sunglasses as he did an Elvis tune, “It’s Now Or Never – My Love Won’t Wait”, “I’m All Shook Up”, looked her in the eye and sang “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You”. At that, he placed the lei around her neck. Katie kissed J. R. as he finished the song, “That’s Amore’ “. A cake shaped like a suitcase was brought to her and she blew out the candles. There were more than one and many less than 100, but she did it, and she was given the first piece of cake. As Peterson told her, “Happy birthday, sweetheart!” Katie got up to wave to everyone. She said, “Thanks, everybody. This is really something. God bless you all.” Her Family Catherine was born at 8 p.m. on the night of April 27, 1911 in East Allen Township, the daughter of John and Kysnia (Haluko) Michalgyk. She grew up on her parents’ farm in Moore Township. On June 6, 1936 she was married to Paul Haftel and they had four children, all of whom were at the party on Wednesday: son Warren and his wife Judy of Valley Cottage, N.Y.; daughter Hazel and husband Jim Long of Mechanicsburg, Pa.; daughter Pauline and husband Walter Keays of Front Royal, Va.; and son Larry of Yulee, Fla. She has 11 grandchildren: Chris, Tim, Matthew, Scott, Mark, Paul, Greg, Heather, Warren, Jesse, and Anna; and 10 great-grandchildren: Elizabeth, Stephanie, Joe, William, Gracie, Lauren, Thomas, Claire, Colin and Lincoln. “Kate”, as she likes to be called, worked as a broad goods and ribbon weaver in area mills in Bath, Northampton and Nazareth. She’s a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Catasauqua. A volunteer at the hospital thrift shop earlier, she also has enjoyed traveling, Bingo, auctions, flea markets, yard sales, crochet, and, of course, spending time with her family. Happy 100th birthday, Katie!

Northampton youth details His experiences with epilepsy By Isaac Khallouf
I first began experiencing seizures when I was four years old. After being diagnosed with epilepsy, for years I was prescribed multiple types and dosages of medications, at one point taking as many as 45 pills a day. The medications seemed to help me somewhat, but I was still experiencing strong auras, the early stages of a seizure, multiple times a week. In these instances I would lose focus and the auras would disrupt whatever I was doing for several minutes. In addition to multiple seizures a week, I couldn’t play any of the sports I wanted to without my parents worrying from the sidelines. I constantly felt that my seizures and the dozens of pills I took daily prevented me from being a normal kid. Epilepsy is the third leading neurological disorder, affecting more than three million Americans[i]. The condition is characterized by a disturbance in the electrical activity of the brain,
known as a seizure. Seizures are defined as sudden attacks or convulsions caused by involuntary bursts of electrical activity in the brain, and may cause various noticeable symptoms – including uncontrolled body movements. My family and I were concerned about how many medications I was taking and started to explore options that might allow me to decrease some of my medications. I consulted with a brain surgeon, who studied my brain waves and discovered that my seizures originate in multiple parts of my brain, meaning that I was not a candidate for brain surgery. At that point, my neurologist based in Allentown, Dr. Boosara Ratanawongsa, began discussing other options with my family, including Vagus Nerve Stimulation Therapy (VNS Therapy). VNS Therapy is an FDA-approved device often referred to as the pacemaker for the brain. It consists of a small generator that is implanted under the skin in the left chest

ISAAC KHALLOUF and delivers mild electrical impulses to the brain via the vagus nerve in the neck. An added bonus to VNS Therapy is that it comes with a magnet that, when swiped over the device, can stop or decrease a seizure instantly. Along with the guidance of my family and neurologist, I made the decision to move forward with VNS Therapy as
a treatment option. I was implanted with VNS Therapy on June 14, 2010, the day before my 15th birthday, and the results have been extraordinary. After some initial adjustments in the first few months after being implanted, I have been able to reduce my auras from 15 a month to only one or two a month. When I feel a seizure coming on, I just swipe the magnet over my chest and I am able to make the aura disappear, and potentially avoid a full seizure, almost immediately. With my new-found seizure-control, I have been able to dramatically reduce the amount of medications I take, from 30 pills a day to seven. Although I’ve played on my high school football team for the past few years, now that I have VNS Therapy my parents can watch me play without worrying that I might have a seizure while on the field. My family and I are so thankful that VNS Therapy was presented as a treatment option. I’m happy I can do the things I enjoy,

BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷
Many longtime baseball fans would like to see the game speeded up a bit. One way to do this is to, somehow, lower the average time at the plate of the batters. Both hitters and pitchers now often add to the time of
a game by stepping off the mound or from the batter’s box, and sometimes this is part of a mental duel between pitcher and batter. Batters might be limited in the time they can waste by leaving the plate and pitchers could, possibly, be allowed only so much time between pitches. That, or other time-saving changes, could take fifteen or twenty minutes off the average time of a game, some now lasting over three hours. A bit much for many fans with limited time. This might add to ticket sales which are down this year.

Clay Target Shooting Program Offered for Young People With Bill Kelsey, an NSCA Level I instructor in sporting clays and skeet, the East Bath Rod & Gun Club is going to have a Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) for young people in grades 6 to 12, training them in the act of clay target shooting. Last week, the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs awarded the program a $500 grant to be used for general expenses. The youths will participate in shooting at the Lehigh Valley Sporting Clay facility in Lehigh County. For one thing, SCTP teaches the safe and responsible handling and use of firearms. And for another, it’s a lot of fun! It introduces young shooters to a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. I recall several years ago going through the course, and it was a challenging and fun activity, hitting targets that flew in all directions.

Spring Gobbler Season Underway
The 2011 spring turkey gobbler hunting season began April 30 and continues to May 31. The season for bearded turkeys only has a limit of one bird, except if you possess a second turkey license, and then another bearded turkey can be taken, but only one per day. The youth spring gobbler season began on April 23, and if you read last week’s Home News you saw a youngster with her turkey. Seven-year-old Lillian Miller shot an 18-lb. Turkey in Moore Township. Hunting the turkeys is by calling only, no stalking. And only turkeys with visible beards are legal. Hunting hours are a half hour before sunrise until noon from opening day through and including May 14, the third Saturday this month. You have to be out of the woods by 1 p.m. Starting on Monday, May 16, hunting hours are from a half hour before sunrise until a half hour after sunset for the remainder of the season. Turkey hunter must report harvests to the Pa. Game Commission in Harrisburg within 10 days, whatever method you use to do it. You should have a postage-paid report card that was supplied in your Hunting & Trapping Digest.

In SCTP, the young people are divided up into teams, and for shooting clay it’s three per team. An adult volunteer head coach leads each team. Kelsey said it usually costs $35 to at Lehigh Valley Shooting Clays, and they are lowering the cost to the $25 range. But he thinks they could do better, maybe $10. There is a registration fee involved, covering insurance and awards. Complete information on eligibility, registration procedures, awards and more will be available in the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s Official Handbook – 2011. Look for it on the web at wwwshootSCTP.org along with team registration forms. If you have youths that age (grades 6 to 12) in your family who would like to participate, give Kelsey a call at 570-2347391.

In addition to the Northampton students, students from Liberty, Freedom, Saucon Valley, and Bethlehem Catholic High Schools attend the Academy of Medical Sciences course throughout the school day. Students in the Academy of Medical Sciences course attend BAVTS during the first semester of the school year, studying infection control, medical terminology, risk management, ethics, safety, and related medical subjects. During the second semester, students participate in real-world medical career exploration by doing clinical rotations in 10 – 12 different departments at Muhlenberg Hospital in Bethlehem, under the supervision of hospital staff.

Lehigh board discusses Possible building needs
By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
With a master concept plan on their agenda Tuesday night, April 26, the Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors discussed what they may possibly do in the future with regard to updating buildings that they own. Chairman Darryl Snover said the buildings are in “sorry shape,” especially the maintenance building. “I think we ought to think of a long range plan.” Township Manager Alice Rehrig commented if they would go much further, the consultant who recently gave them a power point presentation on improving municipal buildings would meet with all employees, and perhaps
come up with a scaled down version, possibly providing actual dollars it may cost. Supervisor Dell Grove said, “The next hurdle would be to look at what is most needed.” Supervisor Sandra Hopkins said, “We need a direction to go.” Supervisor Keith Hantz said whatever their planning, they need professional help. Other Matters • An ordinance was approved that calls for no parking on the north side of Coatbridge Lane and Yorkshire Drive. The ordinance was required in order to enforce the ban. • Another ordinance okayed authorizes a promissory note for the municipal authority. • Mrs. Rehrig reported that

a meeting for informational purposes will be held on May 11 at 7 p.m. It is in regard to an application submitted by McAuliffe Hauling & Recycling Services to Pa. DEP for an increase in their daily tonnage at 4716 Timberline Dr., Walnutport, and the process involved. • A group called Lehigh Valley Community Rights Network requested having a movie night at a supervisors meeting, but the board felt it is not appropriate for that time. Otherwise, it could be scheduled. • A resident was concerned about parking at a ball field on certain occasions, saying it could be on one side, but that the lane leads to Overlook Circle and can be too crowded. The LTAA will be asked to relay information about parking changes when there are tournaments. • The board was also asked about burning of brush. The answer was that brush could be brought to the municipal building or contact the First Regional Compost Authority for pick-up. In some cases, police have asked people to
THE HOME NEWS May 5-11, 2011
put out brush fires. • Hantz said the NHS Booster Club would like fees waived for use of the ball field, but they will pay the electrical costs for lighting. This was approved. • Hanover Engineering will design baseball dug-outs at Danielsville. Discussing which way to go, the supervisors decided on an open frame with posts. The recreation board will be notified of their decision in how they are instructing Hanover to go.

Woman concerned about Alerts for emergencies BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
Becky Butz, a Nazareth resident, questioned Nazareth Borough Council on Thursday at its workshop meeting about emergency procedures. She was concerned over tornado warnings that had been issued on Monday. Ms. Butz said the borough should be notifying residents about what they are to do, at least to take cover in a basement. Councilman Thomas Heckman said perhaps sirens should be sounded if people don’t have the internet, TV, radio or other means of communication to know if there is an emergency. Mayor Fred Daugherty apologized for not taking any action, but said he would confer with Michael Rinker on emergency procedures that can or should be followed. Ms. Butz also noted that there is a loud humming noise from a local cement mill the last three months. This
vendors so far for the farmers market at the circle, with May 28 the opening day. She was concerned about where the vendors may want to park their trucks from which to sell goods. • Councilman Tom Heckman said he would recommend this Monday that the borough buy two gas meters, and reported that 11 firefighters are undergoing 30 hours of training. • Councilman Frank Maurek noted that a Girl Scout troop wants to use the park on May 17 for a bridging ceremony; and Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge want to use the park pavilion on June 6. A local company will provide space for a fire truck over the 45 days needed for cement pads to cure at Vigilance Hose Co. • Councilman Larry Stoudt said the Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 30 will begin at 10 a.m. Also, there will be a 5K race on Sept. 24. Nazareth fire police want permission to get assistance from other municipalities in special events at Nazareth, There was a request for fire police at the Holy Family Festival July 29-31, but Council said it should be deferred to East Lawn Fire Co. • Resolutions were to be given this Monday honoring people in the Nazareth Area School District.

The bids were turned over to engineer Donald Keller for review. • A public hearing preceded the workshop when proposed solar energy was discussed for an ordinance. • Councilman Michael Kopatch said there were 35 applicants for summer parttime help, and that it will be starting soon. • Councilman Charles Donello reported a washout in the walking trail, and drainage will be put in to alleviate that problem. • Councilman Rev.
