Allen Twp. Committee to Explore Police Coverage By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Almost every month, and again this past Thursday, the Allen Township Board of Supervisors has been hearing complaints about motorists ignoring stop signs and speeding along without regard to the safety of pedestrians. Supervisors Bruce Frack and William Holmes agreed to serve as a committee to meet with the Northampton Police Department and the Lehigh Township Police Department to see if they would provide extra coverage. Allen Township at present relies only on the Pa. State Police to patrol their roads. On Thursday, a resident of Felice Drive complained that motorists don’t stop at any of the three stop signs in that section of the township. He suggested the township get help from Northampton. State Police patrol cars have been on Savage Rd., and chairman Paul Balliet commented that perhaps the State Police could patrol a bit more. It was pointed out that it’s not just youths, but also adults who are violating stop signs.

Solicitor Lincoln Treadwell suggested a mutual aid agreement with Northampton might be worked out. Frack said, “Drivers have no respect. They don’t even hit the brakes.” He noted that he and Supervisor Michelle Drzeweicki and Township Manager Ilene Eckhart had talked to the former Northampton Police Chief Brownmiller about patrolling in the township, and the price quoted was $178,000 a year. Balliet told the Felice Drive residents, “We’ll start with the State Police and try to get help.” It was at that point that Frack suggested the committee, although at present there is no move toward regionalization such as Bath, Lower Nazareth and Hanover have with CRPD. Other Matters • Engineer Brien Kocher discussed curb box, water lateral and back fill at a private property. Frack suggested that contractors should be told about backfilling properly when they put in water lines from Northampton Borough. The board will have the town-

Vets, Military Honored at Moore Elementary School


Veterans Day was given special significance to students of the Moore Elementary School on Friday when veterans of the armed forces participated in an all-day event with them. It started with a breakfast in the school’s all-purpose room when, in true military style, they lined up for “chow”, and it was served to them by Cub Scouts donning chef hats. The breakfast was provided by the school and the Moore Elementary PTA. After the early breakfast, the veterans lined up in the lobby of the school as busload after busload of youngsters came through the doors to say, “Good Morning.” Many of them shook hands or slapped “high fives” with the veterans as they welcomed the youngsters. Throughout the morning, more than 25 veterans, some wearing their original dress uniforms, or combat fatigues, others who are members of area American Legion posts,

Fire Guts Second Floor of Moore Township Home

A fire in a home at 193 Nazareth Drive, Moore Township, gutted the second floor, but firefighters were able to save the first floor from destruction. All occupants of the home – four adults and three children, their four dogs, and a turtle – were able to escape the flames. The fire started around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4, and

the cause remained under investigation. No injuries were reported by the Klecknersville Rangers Vol . Fire Co. of Moore Township.

Law Establishes Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust By Senator Pat Browne 16th Senatorial District

Pennsylvania is home to more than 900,000 military veterans. Their tremendous service to our nation stands as a point of pride for our commonwealth. It takes a special person to be a soldier, a sailor, a Marine, a member of the Air Force or a member of the Coast Guard. How many people would want to or be able to face the threats and uncertainties that our service members have and still do on a daily basis? We have an obligation to these brave men and women who have fought to keep our nation safe and free to ensure they have the necessary assistance and support when they return home from duty and adjust back into their everyday lives. That is why I recently voted for a new law that will help generate additional dollars for support services for our veterans through private donations. Act 194 of 2012 creates a new Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust Fund (PVTF) to supplement state appropriations for veterans’ programs. The legislation provides additional dollars through voluntary donations to enhance current programs, services and benefits our state already offers, without asking taxpayers to contribute significant new funding. Funding for the Trust will come from donations made via a voluntary check-off box

on driver's license renewals and vehicle registrations, proceeds from the sale of special license plates for veterans and other motorists who wish to honor their service, as well as other private donations. The Trust will fund a variety of programs, such as grants for veterans' organizations, support for county veterans' programs and housing assistance for veterans. To ensure this proposal creates the greatest benefit for our veterans, the legislation also supports new partnerships between the state and a number of charities and veterans' service organizations. It is important to note that money from the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Trust Fund is not intended to replace existing government funding. State, federal and county governments offer a number of helpful resources for our veterans, and it is important to ensure that all men and women who have served our country are aware of the benefits available to them. A list of helpful informational links is available on my website under the Resources/Links tab at http://senatorbrowne. com/veterans.htm. Additional information is also available by contacting the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs online at www.dmva. or calling toll-free 1-800-547-2838. It is vital that our men and women in uniform know that they have our deepest gratitude and appreciation. This program allows us a way to show it.

And Desire

Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip After all the storm damage, the loss of electrical power, people not being able to take showers for days, cutting up trees that had fallen on their properties, and all the other stress that we had from Hurricane Sandy around here, we finally had some days of sunshine and warm air. But for those down at the Jersey shore who lost everything, their problems will go on for days, months and maybe even years. The Red Cross has done a lot to help them. And people have been going down there to help with food, clothing and whatever they could do to help. Just think of how they must feel, to see that they don’t have homes that some have lived in all their lives, and those who used to own or rent homes so they’d have a place to spend summer vacations. They’re now the homeless. . . .We hear so much about others who have lost their jobs and don’t have food for their families, and how much they need the food banks and the soup kitchens that have been set up. Please, folks, do whatever you can, whenever you can to help those who need it so much. . . . I see the Lions in town are collecting winter coats to help wounded veterans and their families. They’ll be up at the Lutheran church this Saturday morning and afternoon, so check out your closets and see what you can give. . . . Speaking about veterans, I’m glad to see that there were a lot of programs in the area to remind us to thank them for all their sacrifices. I hear the Moore Township school had an all-day event so that the kids could honor the veterans and learn more about our country’s flag and how much we should re-

spect what it stands for. Hats off to Principal Curt Dimmick and his staff!! . . . . The presidential election is over, and went pretty much the way all the polls had predicted. There were winners and losers, but I hope all of the candidates will do their best for our state and country, whatever side they were on. After all, we are the United States of America, right??! . . . . High school and pro football games are going pretty good right now, and on Thanksgiving Day next Thursday there will be some rivalries played. Should be lots of fun. . . . I hear “Chick” Liberto had an auto accident and got a couple black eyes from it. I hope his injuries weren’t Visual Arts – Middle any worse than that and that Outstanding he’ll be back on the “Hearts” Giovanni Dodson "My line again soon. . . .

Governor Wolf Historical Society Christmas House Tour

On December 1 the 32nd tour will feature six private homes and the society’s four buildings, each decorated for Christmas by a local florist or garden club. In conjunction with the home tour the society will hold a holiday craft show, hearth cooking, wreath and greens sale and more at the GW Historical Park. The home featured this week was purchased by current owners on August 25, 2011. Due to the condition and their desire to restore the home they did not move in until May 2012. The original outbuildings included the well house, corn crib, chicken coup, and the summer kitchen. Due to the condition of the summer kitchen it could unfortunately not be saved. After discussions with neighbors and prior owners, it is their understanding that the

house next door was originally the barn for the farmhouse. The original home was built in the early 1800's and was made of brick construction and a stone foundation. The kitchen and now master bedroom wing was an addition believed to be put on in the mid 1800's. The addition was actually built over the original root cellar. Because of their love and appreciation of old homes and architecture, Adam and Jasmine Pooler, owners of Custom Contractors LLC, personally designed and renovated this home using original styles and materials. One of their favorite experiences in renovating the house was peeling back the layers of prior renovations to reveal original features such Continued on page 5

Grow Your Small Business - Disaster or Opportunity By CAROL RITTER

What a week! Sandy poured its ugly head on our community and many of us were left powerless for a week. No internet, no cable, no lights, in some cases, no telephones and lots of family who would help but they were in the same situation. If you are in business, many of you could not open and lost tons of revenue this week. On the other hand, some businesses benefited from the storm selling lots of ice, hot coffee, and water. Restaurants who were open knocked’ um dead with sales. And then there were the givers, my favorite restaurant offered for me to work there in the morning when they were not open and plug in my electronics. A local market gave away ice and water to all PPL customers. Facebook was packed full of offers to those who needed help. As a business owner, did you view this as a disaster or an opportunity? An opportunity to give back to your loyal customers, an opportunity to extend a helping hand to those in need, an opportunity to show your customers who you are and what you value. I know for sure that LOYALTY is possibly the number one character trait needed to be successful in business. We need to teach our customers and future customers that we not only desire their loyalty but we are also willing to earn it. How do you feel when someone helps you for no reason? Most of us might answer surprised, happy, appreciative, even unbelievable. Once a customer feels like you care more about them than you do

the dollars, LOYALTY will follow. Turning this disaster into an opportunity is ingenious, but turning it into an opportunity to show your customers who you are is everlasting. “Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you” Author Unknown I’m definitely going to continue eating at my favorite restaurant, LOYALTY ROCKS!

Season of Solidarity

Sanofi-aventis, the diversified global healthcare leader, has always considered volunteerism as part of its culture. This year, employees of Sanofi US, headquartered in Bridgewater, NJ, participated in a special program called “Sanofi Season of Solidarity: Volunteering to Support a Healthier Community”, a month-long volunteer program. Last month, 17 sanofi-aventis employees spent a day at the Matheny Medical and Educational Center, helping to spruce up the grounds by performing a variety of chores including raking leaves, painting and general yardwork. Sanofi discovers, develops and distributes therapeutic solutions to treat diseases. Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility here for children and adults with developmental disabilities. bathroom upstairs was added where a make shift closet used to be located. 
 Some of the Pooler's future aspirations to make this farmhouse truly unique, is to turn the old back porch into a sunroom and create a wine cellar using the original root cellar. The Poolers are looking forward to raising their two young children here while completing restoration and making this house a home. The 1st and 2nd floor will be opened during the tour. Please take a look at original photos of the home and before and after pictures of the renovation.

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie

FOOTBALL✷ ✷ ✷ Perhaps the biggest news in college football this year is the return to power of Notre Dame. The Irish were for decades a major football powerhouse. But in the last ten or fifteen years the team has not contin-

ued that annual powerhouse ranking. This year the Irish regained their former reputation as one of the nation’s top teams. (Many of their fans wished they had had former number 1 Alabama on their schedule this year.) But for many they had something better. They play their last game against Southern California, a long-time traditional rival. But that was not the big surprise on their 2012 schedule. For their first game they traveled to Dublin, Ireland! There they defeated Navy, beginning their winning streak.

Outdoors Federation Hears Another Side About Gas Drilling Readers may recall an earlier Outdoors column when we reported on what a consultant to the natural gas industry had to say about the Marcellus Shale industry, in which wells are being drilled for natural gas in Pennsylvania. At the most recent meeting

of the Northampton County Federation of Sportmen’s Clubs, another side of that story was told by Tracy Carlucci, representing the Delware River Keeper (DRK). She was invited by Federation president Mike Topping. DRK has some concerns, she told the sportsmen as they met at Easton Fish & Game. By the numbers, here are a few: (1) Regulations are not good enough for the heavy duty industrial process. There are toxic chemicals involved in the fracking. A percentage of the chemicals that come up are not controlled enough by regulations, either

Christ UCC sweeps to gain Share of third in dartball

It was a good night for Bath teams on Monday in the Suburban Inter-Church Dart Baseball League, and even better for Christ UCC as they swept Trinity Lutheran at Bangor, 3-1, 9-3, and 5-3.

(2) Pennsylvania is not doing a good enough job dealing with the violations by the well drillers (12 per day). 1,370 wells have been inspected, but there are hundreds of violations. 91% of the wells that should have been inspected were not. As a result, there is a high rate of methane gas getting into water supplies and the aquafir. Enforcement actions are going down. Some of the largest companies are guilty of violations – Ms. Carlucci claiming that Chesapeake is the worst. (3) Hydraulic fracturing is very dangerous – defects in the shell casing; and well blow-outs. In 80 to 100 years the barrier that is there will break down. Only 1% of the earth’s water is potable and 99% of that is in danger of pollution. Ms. Carlucci, who has studied the problem for four years, answered questions posed at the sportsmen’s meeting. Topping said bedrock is a natural buffer. But she said that even a mile down methane gas escapes. The connection is made when the hole is drilled. Orphan wells for oil drilled years ago can be disturbed. The Federation president asked if the DRK and others could come up with legislation to make the process better, at the same time noting that drilling creates jobs and is a major source of energy. He suggested that best management practice would be the best way to go. Under Act 13, drillers can go anywhere. While it was overturned in one court, an appeal was Continued on page 13

asked the students to ”Pray for their safety so they can come home to their families.” Cong. Dent said the men and women in the military make tremendous sacrifices, thousands lost their lives in every war that was ever fought, and that families at home had to sacrifice as well. He also remarked that the Coast Guard is an important branch, and its members provided relief to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy.


He answered many of the students’ questions, one girl telling him that her greatgrandfather was a member of the Flying Tigers during World War II. When a teacher asked about Congress and their relationship to the armed forces, Cong. Dent said that they provide the funds for weapons, armor, planes, health care, and supplies that they need both in war and peacetime. In effect, he said, as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, “Congress provides the resources the military needs.” He told the children about the Secretary of the Army,

Dent said, “Now we have to go about business and work together.” In closing, he asked that the children say “Thank You” whenever they see a veteran, for the service they’ve given to their country. After that program, the younger children went down to the gymnasium for a laser light show that featured American history, and included the song, “I’m Proud To Be An American.” Also part of the day’s activities was a demonstration on how to fold the nation’s flag, led by members of American Legion Post #269 in Palmerton along with sixth grade students. . . .Allentown’s Dieruff High School R.O.T.C. Drill Team also displayed what they do in competition with rifles. The day ended with a lowering of the school flag outside, as the children gathered around it following a parade around the school, all of them holding miniature American flags to wave. As Moore Elementary School Principal Curtis Dimmick remarked about the days’ observance: “We felt we needed to do something to give them {the students] better knowledge and understanding of what Veterans Day is all about.” They succeeded, as the youngsters’ spirit shown brightly.

Foreign Residents Deliver Local Records

Recently, Dr. Marcia Falconer, a resident of Canada, presented three binders of tax lists of Lehigh Township for the years, 1761 to 1789, to Lehigh Twsp. Historical Society.. She and her sister, Ardis Grosjean, of Sweden, are members of the society. They researched family history and traveled to Germany to gather information for a book they will be publishing in the near future. Marcia and Ardis are descendants of the Dreisbach family, and if anyone remembers the history of Lehigh Township, the Dreisbachs were the very early settlers in Lehigh Township. Simon Dreisbach and his family settled in the Pennsville area near Cedar Drive. Dr. Falconer researched all of the information at various sites and it is probably the most complete tax listing available for Le-

high Township from 1761 to 1789. In some cases, the tax lists contain much more than tax information. There is information that includes total acreage, cultivated acres, number of horses, cows and sheep, grist mills, oil mills, servants, negroes and trades. These records will be useful to anyone doing genealogy or historical research and will be preserved by the historical society. Interested visitors are welcome to examine these old records. The society is grateful for this contribution of information, which will be on hand with other memorabilia in the historical centre in Pennsville. December 2 and 9 will be Holiday Open House dates for the LT Historical Society at the historical centre in Pennsville. The historical centre will be open from 1 to

Residents who were there on Thursday agreed that noise from trucks moving fill at an abandoned quarry site is often heard after 9 p.m. • Ms. Eckhart noted that all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles are not allowed on county parks. After some discussion, the supervisors decided to include that restriction in their ATV draft ordinance, keeping those vehicles 50 ft. away from property lines and 100 ft. from buildings. One resident present said that snowmobiles even cross a local cemetery. • The October report of the Allen Twsp.

The report listed no amount of fire damage. • A resident questioned a Morning Call report concerning the residents’ turn-

down of a proposed 0.25% tax for open space that claimed “an average $60,000 income among [Allen Twsp.] residents.” Balliet said they gave the paper no such figure. The vote to reject the tax was 848 to 648. Before last Tuesday’s election, a local resident actively opposed the tax issue being on the ballet a second time.

of the storm, people in my neighborhood were helping each other with cleanup and support, reminding me how people were after 9/11 tragedy. We bundled up and shared food, played card games, and I won my first Monopoly game! Originally when coming to the Lehigh Valley area I decided to rent with the option to buy. I contacted Prudential Choice Properties (145 S. Main St.) and Anne Andes helped me locate a home in a quaint neighborhood of Nazareth. She was so helpful in understanding my needs: a close location to commute to work, near a major highway, a major airport and hospital. But also since being on my own, I hoped for a friendly community. After the storm I have decided to purchase this house because I witnessed true community hospitality. When you pull together to get through a crisis you really learn who your neighbors are. It is a comfort to know that there are still places to live where people are concerned and care for one another. Earlier last month I attended an art exhibit and met some very interesting people. Dan Thierry from Dominion Mortgage (15 S. Main St.) introduced himself at this Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce event, and gave me his card. At that time I was only entertaining the thought of purchasing my house, but now I contacted Dan and he is researching for my best options. It good to know that he

is an “independent financial advisor” that is giving me impartial advice. I am thankful that I made the connection with him at the chamber function and that I didn’t have to use the Yellow Pages. Now this house will truly be my home! The gas furnace I have was due for a cleaning so I contacted Fogel Fuel Service (108 Easton/Nazareth Rd.) and Nicole was very helpful in suggesting an exact time for scheduling their visit. Nice not to be waiting all day for the serviceman to arrive. Also I was interested in a indoor filtering system. Since moving into the area it seems I have developed some allergy symptoms and Nicole suggested to have one of their consultants come to my home. They could install Continued on page 15

News Sermonette The Rev. Glen Rice

Pastor, Zion’s Stone U.C.C. Church

God Can Change You “You who pass judgement do the same things” (Romans 2:1c, NIV.) I remember while studying during a basic psychology class how the things that annoy us the most about others are the very things that annoy us most about ourselves. With much study and self-reflection, sometimes we are able to improve and control ourselves concerning our annoyances of others (and ourselves.) We can make ourselves better but rarely are we able to change others. Oh, many have and continue to try to change others but only God can make a person willing to change. Only God can change a person’s heart. When trying to determine how to change yourself (or others if you must), go to the Bible for the answer. When you’re looking to refrain yourself instead of condemning others go to the Bible. We are challenged most days of our lives with the judging of others. As Christians, we should practice grace and mercy toward all, even when others do wrong. We too are far from perfect; we are all sinners. Judging others is difficult because we truly do not know the motivations of others. Leave the judging to God; the ultimate judge. Through Jesus Christ, God has given all Christians much grace. Please do your best to pass along to others some of what God has blessed you with. Turn the other cheek and give others another chance. Jesus said, “The most important commandment is, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31 NIV)

made to another court. It was pointed out that if there is pollution, the taxpayers have to pay for it, because the drillers are exempt from the Superfund law. Ms. Carlucci said the current boon is “Very artificial. What about the forests that are being flattened for wells? It is a totally consuming industry.” Marcellus Shale gas is also being exported overseas, she said. William Goodman asked her, “How do you make up for the financial loss if drilling is stopped? 35% of the natural gas in the U.S. comes from shale. The high paying jobs are the managerial jobs by out-ofstate people from Texas and other oil producing state. Lower paying jobs are the truck drivers who haul water for the fracking. They work to put food on the table. A stable economy comes from tourism, hunting and fishing in this state,” Goodman said. Concluding her talk, Ms. Carlucci said, “Degrading our landscape leaves a change to our water and the aquafir. These wells will only produce good for about five years. The companies are about making the fast buck.” The debate goes on, and the sportsmen are trying to understand every aspect of the natural gas rush in this state. They’ve been hearing it at state PFSC conventions as well.

Nazareth police are looking for a man who stabbed a woman in the abdomen. The woman was beaten, robbed and stabbed several times according to police, just before 9 p.m. Friday November 9. The incident took place outside the woman’s home on South Main and West Evergreen Streets in Nazareth. Police are looking for the suspect, described to be a white male, 18-20 years of age, wearing a dark colored hooded jacket. Anyone with information is asked to call 610-759-9575 or 610-759-2200.

Nazareth Citizens to Support Full Time Police Force

contemplate the fate of the Nazareth Police Department, residents are asking for more police coverage. One option that officials are currently considering is a merger with another local department to help lower costs of operating a police department. But residents are hoping that doesn’t happen. Residents are using Social Media and going door to door to organize their neighbors to attend the next meeting of the Nazareth Police Committee scheduled for this coming Monday Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. The goal of the group of residents is to show support for maintaining the current police force and increasing coverage with the hiring of a full time police officer. This organizing of citizens is coming on the heels of a stabbing in the borough last Friday.
