Bath Council okays bid to Reconstruct park pavilion By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Bath Borough Council on Monday approved a low bid by a Mountaintop contractor to get the ball rolling for reconstruction of the Keystone Park pavilion. The bid from C. E. Ankiewicz was $204,000, significantly higher than the $126,000 that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had allocated to rebuild the hurricane-damaged pavilion, Borough Manager Tom Petrucci said. But he said that a FEMA representative told him the agency will pay for the overrun as long as the borough follows the original scope of work. To cover the balance on the last payment, Council will borrow from the Pennsylvania Local Government Investment Trust (PLGT) or a local bank, and then be reimbursed by FEMA. The contractor has 120 days to tear down the old pavilion, build a new retaining wall, and complete the pavilion and parking lot. Another bid that the borough received was for $253,900. Other Matters • Diane Smith had numerous questions for Council.

First, she would like sidewalks installed up to her home, but was told the borough would have to do it for others. She said some people are getting sidewalks for free, while others have to pay for them. Petruccci answered that a Census Block Tract is for low income areas, making them eligible for a CDBG grant that includes S. Chestnut St., Old Forge Dr., one side of W. Main St., and Green St. She also owns a S.

Pennsylvanians Reminded of the Responsibility to License Their Dogs License Fees Help Protect Dogs and Support Animal Shelters Statewide Agriculture Secretary George Greig today reminded Pennsylvanians to license their dogs, saying a dog license is the best way to protect lost dogs. “Dog ownership comes with a lot of responsibilities and licensing your dog is on the top of the list,” said Greig. “Buying a dog license is easy and affordable. Dog owners can purchase a license at their local county treasurer’s office, through agents and online.” An annual dog license is $8.45 or $6.45 if the animal is spayed or neutered. Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have permanent identification like a microchip or tattoo. Older adults and people with disabilities may be eligible for discounts. The dog license application is simple and only requests owner contact information and details about the dog being licensed, including name, age, breed and color. “Most Pennsylvania dogs are not licensed and each day we care for lost dogs that may never make it home because of this,” said Peggy Nork, Luzerne County SPCA development director. “Your best

friend’s best chance at a happy homecoming is a dog license.” Greig offered these reasons for dog licensing: It’s the law. All dogs three months and older must have a current license. If your dog is lost, a license is the best way to get him back. A license helps animal control and shelters identify your dog and get him home safely. The cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog. License fees support animal

control. Purchasing a dog license helps keep shelters running and supports the work of the Dog Law Enforcement Office. The office ensures the welfare of dogs, regulates dangerous dogs and oversees annual licensing and rabies vaccinations. State dog wardens completed 4,711 kennel inspections last year and issued 3,113 summary citations and 56 misdemeanor charges related to violations of the Pennsylvania Dog Law.

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip What a beautiful week of sunshine we’ve had. But I have to admit, we do need some rain to even things out. If we don’t the no burn signs will be up again soon. Here’s a trivia question Ye Ed handed me…Seems the hearts gang at the Legion has had a debate about Phillipsburg, Pa. Is it the highest point in the state or the coldest, or neither? They’ve stopped playing cards at times just over that argument. Marty Beal even got out a map. Clark S. didn’t

say much though. He was munching on a donut or two… Primary election is only a few days away and you can tell by all the signs along our roadsides – judge, mayor, county council, supervisors. We’ll see soon enough, I reckon, who the winners are… Did ya see that wreck the other day in the Talladega race? The drivers sure were lucky with one car tumbling over and over until it landed on top of another. No serious injuries but lots of excitement… Don’t know what

Reckon the season’s about shot already and they’ll hafta start from scratch. Only problem is all the big bucks they paid the players…. Guys who have snow plows suffered a lot this past winter with the light snowfall we got. But if they have lawn mowers, they should recover all right, ‘cause the grass is growing mighty fast. Happy mowing, guys! Reckon that’s the ups and downs of the landscaping business… I gotta tackle my own yard now, so I’ll mow right along. . . Enjoy the sun, but look for a little rain.

Little Free Library project by Girl Scouts OK’d by Council Members of Junior Girl Scout Troop 8219 at Christ Church came to Bath Borough Council on Monday night. They and their leader, Theresa Schmoyer, proposed a “Little Free Library” as their Bronze Award project. It is a creative and self-contained weatherproof box with a roof and plexiglass windows and doors. They look like dollhouses for books. Little Free Library is the largest library network in the world, founded on the idea that the free sharing of books creates a sense of connection and community. There are no due dates, late fees, or library cards required, and the doors

would be open every day of the week, 24 hours a day, the girls told Council. The library will have a sign that simply asks users to return a book. One scout said that the Little Free Library serves a different function than the school library. Kids can keep the books forever, which helps to promote literacy and reading at home. Mrs. Schmoyer, who will be officially registered Little Free Library Steward, said she would like the “library” to be placed in Keystone Park near the pavilion. It would basically contain children’s books, some they might receive from the

A banquet held this past Wednesday, May 1 at the BarnHouse Village celebrated the 85th anniversary of the Bath Lions Club. The club was chartered in March 1928, sponsored by the Bethlehem Lions Club. Speaking to the members and guests was Past International Director Gene Polgar, whose topic was “In a Community of Service.” He said that the club in more than eight decades has had leadership in following the vision of Lionism, and asserted that there is still much work to do in the community. Polgar commended the Lions for stepping up and helping those in need, as he noted their help in raising money and collecting food for the Bath Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank. “Many in the community don���t know where their next meal is coming from,” he said, and those efforts have done much to relieve the stress. “By yourself you can do little,” he said, “but together we can do so much.” He urged the Lions to find new projects, and bring new hope for those in the community. “Food baskets bring smiles on people’s faces,” he said. Polgar said that when the club was chartered 85 years ago they could have taken three paths – being a knife and fork club, a social club, or a true service club, “seeking out projects and people in the community who need your help.” He concluded, “Have you made a difference?” He cited the many ways in which the Bath Lions have made miracles happen over the years. “Continue to work on service,” he said. International Awards P.I.D. Polgar, a member of the Whitehall Lions Club in Lehigh County, then presented three Certificates of Appreciation from Lions International President Wayne Madden of Indiana. They went to Lions Jack Metcalf, Marvin Werkheiser, and PDG Bill Halbfoerster (his fourth), long-time members of the club. Certificates of appreciation were also presented on behalf of District 14-K Governor Linwood Gehris to club president William Falstich and club secretary Daniel Spengler. Falstich led the program, the dinner invocation was given by Lion Rev. Jay R. Wetzel, and entertainment was provided by a singing group from Northampton High School, led by Ms. Emily Reinsmith.

NAZARETH BORO – LOWER NAZARETH TP. – UPPER NAZARETH TP. – BUSHKILL TP.

Info session stirs Comments on pool By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Nazareth Borough Council had an informational meeting prior to its workshop session on Thursday, with the controversial problems concerning the community swimming pool the center of attention. Ted Wallover, president of Wallover Associates, a pool consultant, showed some 40 slides that depicted the problem areas with the pool and bath house that were constructed 74 years ago by the Works Progress Adminsitration.

He said the 200x100-ft. oval pool is six times the size it should be for a community the size of Nazareth. It lacks ADA access, which is required by law. The new filtration system is not compatible with the old fittings and if used could cause significant damage. There is much deterioration in the concrete pool. While the best case scenario would be opening the pool by July 4, it’s not advisable because major renovation is inevitable and new codes mandate changes with new occupancy loads.

Lifestyle Choices for Retirement Are you considering retirement living options?

Council’s Questions Council President Dan Chiavaroli opened the floor to fellow lawmakers, and then Nazareth residents only, despite the pool being used last year by 70% non-residents. His intent was to have Mr. Wallover answer any and all questions that Council and residents had about the current state of the pool and his recommendations for the future. While many questions were raised, sticking points were the costs involved in both a temporary and long term fix, ensuring that the history and beauty of the park and pool remained no matter the outcome, funding for the project in way of available grants, taxes and possibly neighboring towns, and meeting the ADA criteria that are set fourth for all public swimming facilities. Wallover noted that a new pool could cost $2.4 million for a smaller pool or up to $8-$9 million for a larger pool including bathhouse renovations. “That is inappropriate for a community of this size” Wallover said, “It doesn’t make sense to build a new pool without a bath house. There has to be a balance with building codes. A bath house is driven by the occupancy of the pool.” Other Comments Residents, like Council were also concerned with the costs associated with renovations and building a new pool. They also looked at the fact that there are a limited number of taxpayers in the Borough to pick up the costs of the new pool. Through much discussion, the residents were against the bandaide fix proposed that would allow the pool to be open by July 4, 2013. Wallover noted that it would take 4-5 months to design a pool, and if started in September it would be next Memorial Day for opening. “We have no idea in what condition those pipes are and if they don’t hold up, the $61,000 is wasted.” Pool manager Jeanette Hartzell researched costs at other community pools and is hoping to work out a deal to allow Nazareth residents to pay resident fees at a nearby location.

Resident John Huber said, “We need to get this accomplished as a community, with other municipalities as well as the borough.” Chiavaroli agreed, “We need to get it done right, even if it takes until 2015.” One woman said Lower Nazareth, Upper Nazareth, Bushkill townships and Tatamy and Stockertown boroughs should all be asked to contribute. She suggested a fund-raiser, but Councilman Larry Stoudt said Council can’t get involved. Harry Adams, who earlier said taxpayers would suffer, suggested a smaller pool like Bangor’s. A question remained at the end of the discussion, “What are the kids going to do this summer?” The Future Nazareth Council took mere minutes to vote this past Monday on the future of the pool. It was decided by a unanimous vote to reject the $61,000 temporary fix and close the pool for the 2013 season while future options are being explored. They also voted to pay the remaining balance owed on the new state-of-the-art filtration system and store it for the new facility. A public meeting will be on Thursday May 16 at council Chambers at 7 p.m. to address the future plans of the Nazareth Community Swimming Pool. Strye Named Mayor At Thursday night’s workshop of Nazareth Borough Council, three candidates for Mayor to replace recently

reigned Fred Daugherty were announced. They were Councilman Jack Herbst, Lance Colondo, manager of a local bank, and Carl Strye, President of Vigilance Hose Fire Co. Council appointed Carl Strye Jr. as Mayor on Monday night after a 5-3 vote. Workshop Actions Councilman Larry Stoudt objected a publicized letter accusing Council of being subversive because money was wanted by the police department for legal fees. President Dan Chiavaroli asked why they would need additional funding when they are getting money from Harrisburg. Councilman Frank Maurek’s report included: a job Johnny put at the pool; giving permission to Holy Family to use a shuttle bus for a picnic; getting another quote for the storm damaged fence at the dog park; and a note that the refreshment stand operators at the park want exclusive rights to use the stand. Exceptions are Nazareth Community Day and the annual carnival. Councilman Carl Fischl complimented the fire department for being frugal with expenses. . . .He also announced that the fire department and Kiwanis paid $6,000 for lights at the park. Councilman Jack Herbst said the hiring process will be re-opened for a part-time police officer. . . .The civil service commission has had a resignation, and Chiavaroli said an alternate should be Continued on page 11

Complaining

Have you ever had “…one of those days?” You know, one of those days when it feels like the world is beating up on you. You’re hit from all sides with complaining, criticism, and negativity being shipped in by the boatloads with countless people at the docks waiting to unload as if it’s crates of gold! I mean really!?! Just sit back and observe people….they don’t just complain and find fault, …..it’s almost as if they get EXCITED when they find more opportunities to complain and find fault. Now come on…..you’ve got to admit that there is something seriously wrong with that! The crazy thing is, it’s really easy for us to end up just like them and not even realize it until we find ourselves at the end of a day filled with complaints, criticism and negativity. Please allow me to give you a little truthful insight……at any given point in all of our lives, there are just as many things to be grateful for as there are things to complain about. In fact, here’s a verse that I’m sure you have heard…. “Seek and you shall find.” The cold hard truth of that verse is that if we are finding things to be grateful for, that shows the state of our heart and the decision in our mind of what we want to look for. On the other hand, if someone is finding only things to complain about, that is clearly a result of what they are seeking. While one person may look at a glass of water and say… “This glass is half empty!” …another person may look at the same glass of water and say… “This glass is half full!” …… One person may say… “We’re almost out of water!” …the other may say… “Oh how wonderful! We have water!” Today we are inundated with the “blessings” of technology through which we feed ourselves on a constant diet of complaining, criticism and negativity through various means of social media. We have 24-hour access to a network of contacts, some of whom we know and many who are nothing more than invisible strangers. We feast on a barrage of social debris that only serves to numb our existence. Before we realize it, we find ourselves reduced to a private little world with a lot of contacts but no real friends. God has created us for so much more! Let me encourage you to “logout” … “turn it off” … and “power down!” God has created a world of beauty and real adventure for you to enjoy. Get outside…take a walk…talk to Him, He’s waiting to hear from you. Unplug from your superficial connection and plug into the supernatural connection. I promise you it will lead to a better mental, physical and spiritual health. God will banish your negative spirit forever! Northampton at their dinner meeting in the Northampton Community Center.

Heckman suggested a cross walk for children, along with a stop sign. Another safety concern was brought by the owner of International TV, with trucks using Union St. between his business and Kicker’s Pub. Council approved a crosswalk and sign “yield to Pedestrians.” While Petrucci said heavy trucks are between 5,000 and 7,000 lbs., Council wants more time to study where to put signs about trucks that use Barber St. Union St. is one-way north. • The parks committee is proposing a walking path to connect all the parks in Bath. Petrucci was given authorization to seek a state grant of $250,000 to complete planning and engineering. • Council adopted an ordinance removing a handicapped zone at n228 Penn St. • Oct. 5 was designated as Community Day at the request of the BBCP, who will have it at Keystone Park. The 275th Anniversary Committee will have a yard sale the same day, with profits going to the borough’s general fund. • Resolutions were approved adopting the H.A.R.B. certificate of appropriateness for 106-108 S. Chestnut St. and 126 E. Main St. • An application will be made for a $250,000 CDBG grant for road infrastructure improvements. Of this, if approved, $231,096 will be spent on Old Forge. • Since there is a new pick-up truck, the old one will be sold at the Northampton Boro municipal auction in July. • Council received a petition from S. Chesrnut St. residents to place their garbage at the rear of their properties, but Council had problems with trucks going out on Northampton St., and talked about sight distance. • The public works crew will put five inches of 2-A aggregate stone on small alleys to improve them.
