15 Finish CRPD Citizens Police Academy Course

On Nov. 14, the Colonial Regional Police Citizens Academy came to a conclusion. The 15 participants were congratulated by Chief Roy D. Seiple, sending them away with a better understanding of the operations of a police agency, and most importantly fostering friendships with community members and officers that will last a lifetime. The 11-week course, which is geared to give citizens an inside look at the criminal justice system, the police department and police work in general, included tours of the Northampton County Prison, 911 Center, and a field trip to the firing range. Classes included such topics as Crime Scene Investigation, D.U.I. and Accident Reconstruction, Drug Identification, courtroom mock hearings, and defensive tactics. Most classes were taught by CRPD instructors. Additional instructors included District Judge James Narlesky, Northampton County ADA

Richard Pepper, Atty. James Burke, Coroner Zachary Lysek, Officer John Roth DUI coordinator, and Mark Lambert and Jason Wirley of the Northampton County Prison on gangs. Some of the comments from the participants were “Very comprehensive and informative,” “Very interesting learning about Colonial Regional Polcie Department,” “All was excellent. Superb, would like to attend all classes again. Nice to have Colonial Police for my home town,”“Keep up the good work; with you guys there for us, the feeling of safety is REAL.” All of them agreed that the course was interesting, with outstanding speakers, very eye opening, and they would recommend it to others. The participants included Daniel Chiavaroli, Jessica Mannino, Dennis Matthews, Robert and Annmarie Scholl, Mary Bem, Sarah Bem, Dionne Goldsby, Louise Kahler, Frank Fisher, David Williams, Gloria and Frank Wunderler,

OpinionHH A Bright Future Lies Ahead for Newspapers

By Caroline H. Little There’s an excessive amount of gloom and doom being spread around these days when the talk turns to the future of newspapers. In fact, the mere mention of the future of newspapers suggests that there might not be one. There is no question that the newspaper business has been disrupted. And yet, what the doomsayers fail to see is that newspapers are well on their way to ensuring that a bright future lies ahead. It has been painful to bring costs in line with revenue and recast the product to reflect the realities of the new media world. But one thing that has

not changed is our historic mission of informing and enlightening, agitating and entertaining, protecting and defending the public’s right to know. Without question, the newspaper of tomorrow will not be the newspaper of yesterday or even the newspaper of today. Change and innovation are pointing us toward a very different future, one that cements our unique role in the communities we serve. Just a few years ago, we were a print business with digital on the side. Today, we are bringing together print, web and mobile, and opening the possibilities for even greater advancements that now may be only dreams in a young innovator’s mind. Our digital products are growing fast, and our websites have taken the market lead. Indeed, newspapers are the Internet, or at least a vital and sought-after part of it. Aggregators such as Google News rely on newspaper

lution is the recognition that if you want to separate the serious from the sludge, it might cost you a little money. Newspapers have proven they can function in print, on websites, in digital partnerships and as part of the social media scene. But they also can do what no one else can do. We are at the heart of our communities. We generate the information and track the local developments that are vital for an informed, engaged citizenry. We offer clarity and perspective, and we provide content that our readers can trust. Getting to the point we are at now has not been easy. Genuine change is never easy.

President wins Pennsylvania And Nation for Second Term

President Obama easily won the vote for re-election in Pennsylvania and the margin was closer in the nation, but he won a second term by a large margin of electoral college votes, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney in last Tuesday’s election. Since the deadline for this publication is early on a Tuesday, we could not publish the results in last week’s issue. We do congratulate the President and his running mate, Vice President Biden, and hope that the troubles of recent years can be straight-

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip What a beautiful week weather-wise it has been!! After the storm we went through, this was a real refresher.

We have a lot to be thankful for around here, but for the folks in New Jersey and New York, if they’re alive that’s really what to be thankful for. The damages to their homes and all the possessions they lost can be replaced at some time, but lives mean more than anything. . . . Ye Ed tells me the Lions are thankful for all the people who brought in their winter coats for the Purple Heart Foundation, a group that serves wounded warriors and their families.

Reverse Order Puts on Concert at Middle School This Tuesday, Nov. 20, the nationally acclaimed Reverse Order performed a concert in the afternoon at Northampton Area Middle School. The concert was sponsored by the Middle School school-wide Positive Behavior team in celebration of a great beginning to the school year. Here’s what their website has to say about them: Reverse Order is a dynamic pop rock band that combines powerful teen anthems with driving guitars and infectious melodies. Their unique blend of two lead vocalists, John and Cruise Russo, sets them apart from most bands in their


genre. Meg McAlduff of America’s Got Talent had this comment: “The entire staff was impressed by their professionalism and attitude. They rocked the stage each and every time they stepped on it.� Coming together in 2008, and coming together with the current line-up including Drew Katsock and Frank Spangler, the band has made a huge impact in the Northeast region and the nation as a whole.

Missing pieces were duplicated and restoration is almost complete. An addition provides storage, baths, pantry, and laundry allowing the original rooms to be left intact. An unusual feature of the kitchen walk-in fireplace are two original bake ovens, one 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122; deep, and the other 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122; deep. The stone foundation for the deeper oven is a prominent feature in the first floor addition. In winter this fireplace is frequently used for hearth cooking. For the tour both floors will be open. An extensive collection of early wrought and cast iron pots and tools for hearth cooking are displayed in the kitchen. In the 1920s the house was featured in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Pine Series of Architectural Monographsâ&#x20AC;? which has been reprinted by the National Historical Society.

“BLUE”, the family’s English Springer Spaniel, checks the book his master, Bud Cole, has just written. – Home News Photo

Novel Written by Local Naturalist


The adventures of a Lehigh Township family that followed their finding of a lost puppy dog are contained in a book written by a local naturalist, outdoors writer, and a former teacher. Titled “The Mystery of Little Bear,” the story in a 127page paperback novel was written by Bud Cole, who resides along Friars View Drive, Northampton. It relates the adventures that he and his family had with “Buddy” for the nine and a half years that they had him after he was found wandering in a wooded area near their home. Cole called him that name because he picked it up himself as a youngster at the age of 11. The dog of an unknown breed was found on a cold February night back in 1996, when the temperature was a frigid eight degrees. At first, he put signs outside that read “Lost Dog,” but the family became so attached to the little puppy that he took the signs down. Going by the name of Sterner in the novel, he relates how he took the puppy to Blue Ridge Kennel and it was determined that the canine was only 4 or 5 weeks old when he was found. Cole says he was a “sweetheart” of a dog, and may have

a period of nine months, but in actuality he lived to be 10 years old before cancer took its toll and he had to be put down. “Buddy” had grown to weigh 90 lbs. Besides the adventures that the family enjoyed, Cole adds a bit of cheer that children can relate to in his book, telling about the joy that they have when finding gifts under a tree on Christmas morning. He also has included many local people, who readers may find that they know personally. The cover illustration for Cole’s book was done by Deborah Miller of Danielsville. Cole is a free-lance writer who has written many articles for newspapers and magazines, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association. He also lectures and gives school programs. While “Buddy” is no longer with the Cole family, an English Springer Spaniel named “Blue” is. They also have a little gray cat that they enjoy. The feline is special, too, and on a recent summer tubing trip down the Lehigh River he went along for the ride tucked inside a sweater Bud’s wife, Bev, wore. Cost of the book is $12.95. It was published by Infinity Publishing. If mailed, add postage. Cole’s address is 4006 Friars View Drive, Northampton, PA 18067. Phone 610767-4043 or e-mail him at

been part wolf and part chow. At the time, Cole was teaching in the George Wolf Elementary School in Bath. He asked then Principal Bill Falstich if he could bring him to the school. With that permission given, “Buddy” was tucked into a trapper’s pack basket and brought to the class for the enjoyment of all who saw the cuddly creature with fuzzy red hair and tiny ears. In the book, he’s lost at school, but the children were more worried about the skunk It’s the love of other peothat was outside. ple’s money which is the root The story line only covers of all evil.

Nazareth loses 29-28 in Playoff Double Overtime The Eastern Conference playoff finals went to two overtimes on Friday night, but Wyoming Valley West prevailed, 29-28, by going for a two-point conversion, after the Nazareth Blue Eagles settled for one extra point on a kick through the uprights in that second overtime. The score was tied at 2121 in regulation and the first overtime, and Nazareth got the football to open the second extra period, scoring on a 10-yard run by Anthony Gaetaniello and the extra point by Ben Wieczorek’s kick. But then the Wyoming West Spartans reached Nazareth’s one-yard line on second down and junior Michael Baur ran the ball in to make the score 28-27 in Nazareth’s favor. After time-outs on both sides, Baur handed the ball to Brett Good and he ran to the

Bath Bowling Teams 4 and 5 Split, Dropping Latter in Bath Die Hards League Teams 4 and 5 had a split decision as they tied 2 to 2 on Nov. 14 in the Bath Die Hards League. The result? Team 4 stayed first and Team 5 fell to third by a half game as Team 7 scored a 4 to 0 sweep. Team 4:

right and into the end zone for the winning margin of 2928. Nazareth’s earlier scoring went this way. In the second quarter Shabbar Bokhari got a touchdown by running in from nine yards. In the third quarter, Alex Tommies scored on a 6-yard run. In the first overtime Jonathan Sandone took a 15-yard pass from quarterback Parish Simmons. Wyoming Valley West, in the meantime, had also scored seven points in each of the second and fourth quarters and another in the first overtime. So, no trophy, to the disappointment of the Nazareth Blue Eagles’ seniors. On Thanksgiving morning, Northampton’s Konkrete Kids will play at Catasauqua, playing the undefeated, Colonial League champion Roughies at 10 a.m. Terry Bartholomew, 618; Kenneth Grube, 470, and Kathy Grube, 449. Team 5 had only Bob C. Kosman’s 437 to salvage the split. Now in second place is Team 7, which won 4 to 0, led by Charles Kosman, 543, and Amanda Kosman, 439. There were two other teams that won 4 to 0, Teams 1 and 2. Team 1 had Brenda Deily hitting 504; Bob Kosman, 492, and Joe Bachman, 480. Team 2 was led by Michelle Tirrell, 506, and Art Bruch, 458. And so there were three

Outdoors Countdown To Deer Season Has Begun

Pennsylvania's only unofficial holiday - the Monday after Thanksgiving - marks the opening day of the two-week general deer season, and will feature nearly 750,000 individuals sporting fluorescent orange throughout Penn's Woods, according to Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe. Antler restrictions in place this year mirror those from the previous year. For Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B and 2D, hunters need to identify three antler points, not including the brow tine, which is the point immediately above the antler burr. In the remainder of the state, antler restrictions remain a minimum of at least three points on one side. Statewide, all junior license holders, mentored youth hunters, disabled hunters with a permit to use a vehicle and resident active-duty U.S. Armed Services personnel have a minimum antler restrictions of one antler with at least two points, or one antler three or more inches in length. For those hunters in 11 WMUs, there is a split-season structure, in which the first five days (Nov. 26-30) are open for antlered deer only

610-837-6538 610-837-5828 and the remaining seven days (Dec. 1-8) are open for antlered and antlerless deer. Those WMUs are 2A, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F, 2G, 3B, 3C, 4B, 4D and 4E. In the other 11 WMUs, antlered and antlerless deer are in season from Nov. 26Dec. 8. "In addition to being a rich part of our state's heritage, deer season is critical in managing Pennsylvania's whitetails," Roe said. "The efforts of hunters are far-reaching; they help to keep deer populations in check, and enable the agency to meet deer management goals that benefit those who reside, visit or travel through this state." Roe noted that hunters will need to make sure that they have done their pre-season scouting, as fall food conditions, development, posted property and other factors will impact deer movements. "Deer will respond to food availability and hunter pressure, both of which can vary from year to year, and from one area to another," Roe said. "Pre-season scouting can improve a hunter's chance for success this year. "Recognizing the impacts dramatic changes on the landscape may have on deer movements will be just as important - if not more important - as identifying those locations where deer are feeding regularly. Spending time afield before season often leads to better hunting opportunities." Hunters must wear 250 square inches of fluorescent orange material on the head, chest and back combined at all times while afield during the seasons. They also are advised that it's illegal to hunt, chase or disturb deer within 150 yards of any occupied building without the occupant's permission if they are using a firearm, or 50 yards if they are using a bow or crossbow. During the two-week season, hunters may use any legal sporting arm, as outlined on page 45 of the 2012-13 Digest. Rifles are not permitted to be used in Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Delaware or Montgomery counties, however, shotguns and muzzleloaders are legal. Deer hunters in Philadelphia may use only bows or crossbows. All hunters who take a deer must fill out their harvest tag and attach it to the deer's ear before moving the carcass. The tag can be secured to the Continued on page 15

More than 300 vintage cars –– all shiny and looking like they just came out of the showroom –– were part of the 16th annual car show and flea market sponsored on Sept. 23 by the Moore Township Lions and Lioness Clubs. In addition, with the motorcycles, farms and fire equipment, it was the largest number of vehicles they’ve ever had on display. The show was held at the Moore Twsp. Recreation Center in Klecknersville. Chairman of the event was Moore Township Lion David Gogel, and along with his wife, Lioness Dolores Gogel, they directed the motor vehicles and flea market vendors to their designated areas in the park. As in previous years, Lioness Sharon Dlugos led the food preparation department. She purchased all the necessary food and her fellow Lionesses spent several days prior to the event, chopping, cooking and mixing to make sure all was ready by Sunday, Sept. 23. Chairman David Gogel had the owners of the “mature” cars, cycles, etc. choose the best machine in several categories. Each of the winners received a trophy, and from those winners the “Best of Show” was chosen. That prize went to Bill and Carol Kiefer of Fogelsville for their beautiful 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. It was painted hot lick orange with a pair of white stripes on the hood and two matching 237 numbers. Af-

Northampton’s Taxpayers May Face 1-Mill Hike in 2013 By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Because Borough Manager Gene Zarayko was hospitalized on Thursday, Council did not discuss or take any action on a proposed budget for 2013. That will take place at the next meeting on December 6, according to Assistant Borough Manager LeRoy Brobst. However, Zarayko had indicated on the night’s agenda that there will be a one-mill tax increase in the coming year. The total estimated expenditures would be $5,758,666, and the projected revenue with the tax increase would be $5,722,239. Zarayko’s report indicated that with the opening balance, and the new increase, there would be a closing balance of $207,762. Brobst attributed the need for an increase to higher

medical benefits. In the past three years, there has only been a half-mill increase in taxes. Other Matters Council approved two ordinances. One codifies all the borough’s ordinances into a new code and they will be part of the borough’s web site. The second ordinance opens and ordains Washington Ave. from 10th St. to Lerchenmiller Dr. so that it will qualify that street for state liquid fuels revenue. The public works committee has come to an agreement with the Public Works Department for a new threeyear contract, giving the non-uniformed employees a 60-cent an hour pay raise for each of the three years.

will be required to contribute a minimum of 3%, with a maximum of 17-1/2% and the borough will match 3%. Also in the new agreement is an opportunity for any full-time employee to opt out of medical coverage and receive a $2,000 incentive. Council on Thursday ratified that agreement. One other action taken was to change the term of office for Planning Commission members so that they expire on Dec. 31 instead of the present Oct. 23 to conform to the state planning code. Committee Reports • Councilman Robert Coleman reported that the recent Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Trail marathon was a success. It included 800 runners, among them 200 from the New York City marathon that was called off because of Hurricane Sandy. The organizers were happy with the cooperation of everyone, and Council was pleased that the marathon route was kept clean by a large number of volunteers. Also reported as successful was the borough’s auction, in which municipal equipment was sold. Mayor Thomas Reenock was displeased only with how it was handled. Local firemen manned a concession stand at the auction that went very well. • Councilman Ed Pany reported that the annual cheerleading competition was successful, raising almost $7,000 for the recreation center. . . . Also noted was that with the casino-funded grant, the

community center will have a generator that they are paying for. . . .This past Friday, a tree that was donated was erected at Main St. & Laubach Ave. Lights will be put on it by the public works crew and the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 5:30 p.m. Santa Claus is expected to arrive at 6 p.m. If it rains, the event will take place on Monday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. • Councilman Robert McHale reported that newly hired police officer Michael Buchanan started work on Nov. 9. . . .The K-9 police car that was hit by a deer has been repaired and is back in service. . . .Civil Service will meet Nov. 23 to update their police eligibility list. . .During October, the police issued 17 traffic citations, 3 non-traffic citations, 18 parking tickets, and made 3 arrests. • Councilman Anthony Lopsonzski, Sr. noted that the fire department will sponsor a Santa run for gifts, delivering them on Saturday, Dec. 15 from noon to 4 p.m. to children whose parents dropped them off at the fire station. • Councilman Keith Piecienski reported that the band shell was heavily damaged in the recent storm.

9 THE HOME NEWS November 22-28, 2012 It will be repaired. Council president John Yurish said the false front acted like a sail. McHale said the band shell gets little use and didn’t want to spend an awful lot of money repairing it. Pany said it should be preserved. While it was noted that it might qualify for FEMA funds, Yurish said the federal agency hasn’t paid the $21,000 promised after Hurricane Irene. Piecienski also reported three items that were stolen after the storm: a piece of grating over a storm drain on Horwith Lane; a manhole cover, and a portable stop sign. He did say that people were happy with PPL for restoring electricity after the storm. In Councilmen comments: Pany complimented a number of people who forced open a door to a neighbor who had collapsed and was laying on the floor, He has been hospitalized and is doing well. . . .Lopsonzski encouraged local organizations to replace trees in the parks that were lost in the storm. . . .And everyone wished a “Happy Thanksgiving” to all. Next to automation, nothing beats a wastebasket for speeding up work.

The Rev. Frances Merkel Pastor, Christ U.C.C. Church, Bath

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Day is one of my fondest holidays. I have such warm memories of our family Thanksgiving dinners when I was a child. Even though we had ten people in our family, it seemed as if we always had quite a number of other family members or friends who joined us to celebrate this special day. A favorite memory is when my Grandpop Harle would say a blessing before we would begin to eat. Grandpop emigrated from Austria-Hungary to Canada with his family as a child. As an adult he brought his family to Pennsylvania and made his living there. Grandpop always had a different accent when he spoke – sort of German – sort of French, and it was wonderful to hear him speak. What I loved the best was the blessing he said at our table on Thanksgiving Day. Because it was spoken in German, I did not understand it; but I was impressed with the fervor and the sincerity with which Grandpop spoke it. And I knew that he was thanking God for himself and on our behalf for the many, many blessings we had received from our wonderful God. We can find many instructions in magazines and food programs that will teach us how to prepare the turkey and how to decorate our homes and tables for Thanksgiving. We need to know how to enhance our spiritual gifts for that day as well. Many people are very adept at preparing the feast; and yet they feel awkward offering words of gratitude to God. Naomi Levy suggests that people who are not active participants in a given faith tradition may find that words of prayer do not come easily to them; and she offers a Thanksgiving Prayer that can be said as family and friends gather around a Thanksgiving table. Perhaps it may be helpful for your family as you celebrate this Thanksgiving.

A Prayer for the Thanksgiving Feast

For the laughter of the children, For my own life breath, For the abundance of food on this table, For the ones who prepared this sumptuous feast, For the roof over our heads, The clothes on our backs, For our heath, And our wealth of blessings, For this opportunity to celebrate with family and friends, For the freedom to pray these words Without fear, In any language, In any faith, In this great country, Whose landscape is as vast and beautiful as her inhabitants. Thank you, God, for giving us all of these. Amen.

Continued from page 6 base of the ear with a string drawn very tightly, if the hunter plans to have the deer mounted. Cutting a slit in the ear to attach the tag will require additional work by a taxidermist. For those hunters who plan to visit both a deer processor and taxidermist, it is important to remember that state law requires the deer harvest carcass tag to remain with the head at the taxidermist, and that a second hand-made tag containing the name, address and license number of the person who harvested the deer and the location of the harvest should remain with the rest of the carcass going to the processor. Roe noted that properly licensed bear hunters who still possess an unused bear tag come deer season may take a bear during all or portions of the first week of deer season, but only in certain WMUs. Sale of bear licenses will continue through Nov. 16, after which it will close and then reopen briefly Nov. 22 to 25. Specific seasons and reporting requirements for taking bears during deer season are outlined on page 36-38 of the 2012-13 Digest issued with the purchase of a hunting license. The Digest also may be viewed on the Game Commission's website (www.pgc.state. [2]).
