Board goes with former vo-tech As best option for middle school By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

After much discussion, the Northampton Area School Board, by a 7-0 vote, has decided to go with the first of four options if they are to build a new middle school. D’Huy Engineering’s Chris Haller had laid out four options – the former Bethlehem Areas Vocational-Technical School‘s Northampton branch satellite; the old athletic field, the present middle school, or grounds adjacent to Col. John Siegfried Elementary School. All four of them are in Northampton Borough.

Voting to go with the abandoned vo-tech site of seven acres along Stadium Drive that is adjacent to Al Erdosy Field were directors David Gogel, Jean Rundle, Robert Koch, Jane Erdo, Geraldine Skrapits, Judy Odenwelder, and Cory Fenstermaker. Directors Brett Reichelderfer and Darin Arthofer were not present when the vote was taken. Although the vo-tech property is costing $610,000, the school district will get a 25% discount because of other Continued on page 13

A new Northampton County park was dedicated on Friday, Oct. 28 in the Weaversville area of Allen Township. It has been named Wayne A. Grube Memorial Park, in memory of the late Northampton County Counilman who served 19 years in that office. Fifty acres has been developed of the 200 acres that will consist of two phases. A grand opening and dedication of the facility was held with a large number of municipal, county and state officials on hand. They were welcomed by County Executive John Stoffa. He remarked the land was once an Allentown State Hospital property under state supervision. Development of the park was done through the urging of Grube, and the land was bought by the county in 1991. It includes a walking trail from Northampton

Former State Representative Rich Grucela told the audience that he and Grube worked together, and going from kitchen table to kitchen table they talked over plans for the park. He presented a state citation honoring Grube to his wife Patti, who was present with other members of her family for this special occasion. County Councilman Bruce Gilbert reflected on Grube, how he was a great influence in his own life as a teacher and

football coach at Easton High School. “He was an exemplary mentor to his students and athletes,” Gilbert said, as he related the numerous experiences the athletes had under coach Grube. “He was tough, a lesson that he taught all of us, to play as hard as you can, and do your job.” Gilbert said the players worked hard to be the best individuals they could be, on and off the field. Mrs. Grube introduced members of her family, noting that it was Nov. 11, 2008 when her husband passed Continued on page 9

Homeowners tell of flood Woes in East Allen Twsp. By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Two homeowners who sustained big losses from flooding due to recent storms came to the East Allen Township Board of Supervisors meeting on Thursday night. A review of flooded areas in the southern part of the township, such as Mohawk Dr. and Munsee Lane, were already on their agenda. Township Manager Debbie Seiple said, “There’s no easy fix for the flooding that has occurred. We’ll try to figure it in a capital budget item because it is a big mat-

ter.” The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has some money that is still available, she noted, with less than half given out for damages. Damage reports had to be given before Nov. 1 from the Sept. 28 Tropical Storm Lee, but the date keeps changing. Mrs. Seiple said the township is still putting numbers together. John McDevitt and Barry Frantz will attend a FEMA “kick off” meeting on November 10 at Gracedale. Mrs. Seiple said she was frustrated at their last meeting the way it was handled.

One homeowner at Thursday’s meeting said he had a $100,000 loss, but received only $7,900 from FEMA. Miracle League Before the start of their business meeting, the board viewed power point slides and heard an appeal from Richard Agretto, president of the Miracle League, seeking funds to help build a special ball field for physically challenged children. The field, which will cost $750,000, will be located adjacent to the Chrin Community Center in Palmer Township. Continued on page 13

Letters from our Readers Facebook Allegations Troubling in Election To the Editor:

With an election around the corner, readers should know their candidates before voting. One should know who they really are, how they feel on issues, their experience, and above all, how they conduct themselves. Make an informed vote. Up until a couple of weeks ago, one side of politics got dirty in East Allen Twp. I looked at a website that was said to be created to educate the voters. I found mud slinging against only one person, the opponent that beat him in the primary. This website lists information about the candidates of E. Allen Twp and how they feel on issues. Unfortunately the facts about the woman candidate are not correct. When I sent the correct info to this site, the webmaster does not post the correct info. I will not lower myself by naming this person. He put his own name on the signs promoting the website. According to this website, one of the author’s sources for the information was Facebook. I can tell you that I do not get my info from there. The web states that NASD was pressured by outside sources to sell their land for developing. When asked, Superintendent Kovalchik said that statement is not true. The website promoter did vote in favor of the Rt.329 site for a middle school when the Vo-tech property was available adjoining the current high school campus area. The woman candidate’s appeal showed that Rt. 329 was not the only option. According to the Morning Call, taxpayers were saved $10 million by abandoning the E. Allen plot. The website contained small wise cracks at some of the other candidates, and at a current board member. This caused animosity between our current and future supervisors. The website stated the lady candidate backs land preservation but has farm up for sale. It must have been on Facebook.

She does not even own a farm. If you vote, be very careful. There are candidates who run as write-ins because they lost in May and like to promote mudslinging websites and play dirty. The website may disappear or be revised when this letter is published, but just remember his name when you go to vote. Remember he was throwing mud at the woman candidate. Do a little homework. Know the truth. Make an informed vote.

Web Distortions With Wrong Info To the Editor:

Recently, signs have been popping up in our township urging citizens to “visit” a web site put up by Donald Heiney who lost his bid for re-election to the East Allen Board of Supervisors in the May primary. Of the three candidates running, he came in last. The website is obviously politically motivated because Mr. Heiney is now seeking re-election as a write-in candidate. Mr. Heiney has the right to run as a write-in. He does not, however, have the right to publish self-serving statements that twist the truth about me or any other candidate for the office. Mr. Heiney, who does not clearly identify himself as the author of the web page, is counting on citizens believing everything they read on a blog. As a candidate for East Allen Supervisor, I must challenge some of the distortions that Mr. Heiney is attempting to spread. Perhaps the most hurtful is his accusation that my “family farm” is for sale and listed as prime development. Apparently, my adamant support for farm preservation has prompted Mr. Heiney’s comments. Let me make something very clear to Mr. Heiney. I do not own the “family farm”. My parents, who are in their 90’s, are attempting to sell THEIR farm during these terrible economic times when all properties have been drastically de-valued. They have been married

71 years and have held onto THEIR farm even when development was at its peak and others were realizing fabulous profits for their farms. MY PARENTS have made the sad decision to sell now because they can no longer pay their taxes. They have stated so publicly. Mr. Heiney has the right to raise issues. He does not have the right to drag my parents into his self-serving and twisted blog and paint them with his distortions. I have lived in this area 55 years - 46 years in East Allen Township.Yes, I and my parents and the majority of residents of East Allen Township value and love the rural character of our township. It is tragic that my parents and many others have to make difficult decisions in order to survive these difficult times. I don’t care if Mr. Heiney attacks me. I won’t allow him to throw stones at my parents. Yes, I am also vehemently opposed to building a new school on the NASD property on Route 329 and Seemsville Road. For serious safety reasons and to preserve agriculture, I was opposed to it in 1995 and in 2002, when two higher courts upheld the township’s disapproval of the NASD plans. At a public hearing on October 13, 2010, Mr. Heiney joined Chris Colitas and Mrs. Ladonis to reverse course by rubber stamping an ordinance change that was written BY the school district, FOR the school district. This amendment allows NASD to cover 50% of this AG property with buildings and parking lots and ignore serious traffic and safety issues. When the supervisors would not allow citizens to question our own engineer at the hearing, I decided to run for East Allen Supervisor. We need our supervisors to represent our citizens, not the whim of the school district. Mr. Heiney clearly demon-

strated an ignorance of our zoning laws when he voted for NASD and justified it by saying that he preferred a school on the property over an industrial use. He apparently did not know that the property can only be used for agriculture or a school or revert back to the State. Mr. Heiney, through his blog, has also demonstrated his tendency to distort the facts for his own benefit. He has stated that the School District wants to build in order to avoid pressures from developers who want to develop the property. Anyone following this case knows the property cannot be developed. I have spoken to the current and former Superintendents of NASD and they have confirmed this. There is not space enough to cover the misinformation Mr. Heiney is attempting to spread. He presumes to speak for me, even though he never bothered to question me. He hides in the shadows of an anonymous blog, apparently ashamed to take credit for his pathetic attempt to deceive the voters. Thank you for your past support and please let your voice be heard on November 8.

Madelyn “Maggie” Kemp Northampton, Pa.

Postive Steps Taken in School District To the Editor:

I would like to commend the Northampton Area School Board, Superintendent, and Administration for an outstanding job in dealing with the ongoing financial crisis in school funding, caused by the reduction of state funds. We’ve all seen or read about the negative effects this crisis has had in districts around us. We’ve seen the posturing, the game-playing, and brinksmanship that has occurred in other districts.

While one party or the other may claim to have won in those districts, we all know that the ultimate losers are the students. Fortunately that has not been the case in Northampton. Of course I’m not happy about increased class sizes and other effects of the funding cuts, but compared to many other districts in the Lehigh Valley and beyond, Northampton has fared well. There is one overwhelming reason for Northampton’s ability to weather this storm, and that is TRUST. The trust that the teachers and other employees, and citizens of the community, have in the School Board, the Superintendent, and the Administration, to be honest and straightforward with them in laying out the challenges faced by the District, and to lead the way by example, to a solution. I believe this trust and confidence was evident by the overwhelming willingness of the teachers and other employee groups, and the citizens of this District, to step forward and share in the sacrifice. This year’s experience is a positive indicator for the future. Many believe that next year, and the coming years will be just as difficult, if not more so, than the present year. If that is true, it is of the utmost importance that the Board, the Superintendent, and the Administration do whatever is necessary to maintain the trust and confidence of the employees and the citizens of this District. I urge the District to do whatever is possible, and whatever is necessary, to maintain that level of trust and confidence to ensure the best possible outcome in the coming years for the students of Northampton Area School District.

Moore Township Residents Please remember when you vote this November 8th I value and respect the ongoing challenges and choices we are all making right now in our township. I value your on-going support as I seek to continue to serve you. I value and respect your hard earned support of our township and will continue to make our township, having the second lowest tax-rate despite being the second largest with over 100 miles of roadways, to stay fiscally responsible to you the voters. Since being elected, I believe that it is best to plan than waste, better to act than react and best to improve the integrity of our township for everyone. We have begun with the following: Supporting a full time police force, maintaining our excellent recreation facilities, farm preservation and open space programs with the EAC, and the first, free of charge to residents, composting program and a quality road maintenance program. To maintain our roadways we have replaced deteriorated pipes and road materials. Unfortunately many of these were due to previous poor or no planning on empty promises rather than responsibly getting the jobs done. We have found that there was much to replace when I took over; quick and easy fixes such as not properly or not at all preparing the roads. For example, just laying down blacktop over topsoil which easily washes out and must be constantly maintained, prevented other just as important projects from being attended to. This results in wasting hard earned materials you, the taxpayer, have provided, I believe as I hope you do too that to do it right the first time is the only way to serve your community. I believe in planning and hard work without wastefulness, not just promises gets the job done. If you believe in this also, here are some of the next issues to prepare for our financial security: • Whether it will be more fiscally sound to repair or replace some of the vital equipment used across our township. • Support for our dedicated ambulance corp. and our ability to help them provide their excellent coverage, especially during daytime hours when many of the volunteers are at their own jobs. • Continue the project of properly replacing the costly dirt roads across our township, especially after the harmful effects of recent weather patterns; unfortunately we have had to sideline this moneysaving project. • To prevent and reduce the damage of all the recent flooding replacing many of those damaged and deteriorating pipes that have allowed so much of an impact to so many residents will remain a priority. •To continue utilizing our Penn Dot representative, who I am in regular contact with and who places no burden on you the taxpayer, before other resources which do come at a cost to you the community. While I am the one out working with our road workers, all of these plans must be approved by procedure with the other board members. I admit road maintenance does not come cheap. We owe it to you to use your tax dollars effectively with no waste, I believe that you share the same values I was taught by my dad when I was just a kid growing up here on the same plot I live on now, “if you can afford to do a job twice, you can afford to do it right the first time”. I owe it to you to listen to my dad. Allow me to continue building on the work to move our township forward, building on a fiscally respectful plan and not just promises, for you my fellow tax payers.

I write this to share my plan with you. I have yet to hear a plan from the other candidates for our TOWNSHIP to move forward. I WILL SHOW YOU MY APPRECIATION FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT! Sincerely,

Maynard S. Campbell Democratic Candidate for Moore Township Supervisor Please remember to voTe TUeSDAY November 8th, 2011 Paid for By the Friends of Maynard S. Campbell

the Fence GabGab OverOver the Fence by Pete G. Ossip by Pete G. Ossip

Mother Nature pulled a trick on us this time, and believe me, there was no treat. SNOW in October, and even before Halloween!!. What a surprise that was. It was a heavy, wet snow at that, and with leaves still on most trees, a lot of limbs and even trees came down. We didn’t have it near as bad as some places, where the trees fell on power lines and folks have been without electricity for days and days, and even into the middle and end of this week. When we lose electricity, we find out real fast how much it means and how we depend on it. There’s still some snow on the ground, because it froze up overnight. Like I said, Mother Nature proved again that we can’t fool with her. Rain most of the summer, and now snow in October. I hate to think of what December, January and February will be like. If we get as much snow as we had rain, it’ll be over our roofs. What a year! Rains, floods, hurricane, earthquake, and now snow! I think I’ll fly south with the birds. . . . Before it snowed, and since then, the crew doing work on Main Street over by the park has been busy digging holes and taking out sidewalks. When they’re done, it’s supposed to be something like downtown Main Street with the brickwork, special light poles, and trees, and other nice things. Some say it’s a waste of money, but at least it will make our town look nicer. But, like I’ve said many times, I sure wish they’d get over on Chestnut Street, too, the oldest street in town. . . . In some places Halloweeners hadta wait, but Bath had theirs on Monday, so it worked out. Rich Ackerman was real hap-

py with the party they had for special youngsters down in Bethlehem the other day, I hear. . . . Sorry, Elmira, I hafta get in some sports. My prediction came out right. The Cardinals won the World Series, so that’s what happens – beat the Phillies and you win the Series. The Giants did it last year. . . . Those Eagles knocked the daylights out of the Cowboys on Sunday. Now let’s see what they can do with the Bears. . . . Konkrete Kids fans better put their cheering shoes on and give their team a boost ‘cause as I get it they’re playing over in Nazareth on Friday night. . . . Don’t forget to set your watches one hour BACK this Saturday night ‘cause we go on Standard Time come Sunday at 2:00 o’clock in the morning. Another hour of sleep! . . . . Also don’t forget to vote on Tuesday. . . . Can’t decide whether to get out the lawn rake or the snow shovel. Reckon I better get ready with both. . . .Have a restful weekend, gang.

Perfect conditions made Bath’s Halloween parade more enjoyable

The Bath Firefighters & Ambulance Corps Halloween parade this past Tuesday, Oct. 25 was a huge success, made all the more enjoyable by perfect fall weather conditions. Halloween is made for children, and there were hundreds and hundreds of them,

either walking or riding on floats from the organizations in which they participate – mainly scouts, football players and cheerleaders. The sponsors are to be commended for having their neighboring fire companies and ambulance corps at the head of or

in the middle of each division, and probably at their request, silencing their horns and sirens. The flashing lights, and the smiles on the faces of the firefighters and drivers were enough to show pride in these units, which protect lives every day and night of the year. Judges for this parade were seated behind a festive-looking table at the foot of the Bath Borough grounds on E. Main St. They included Wil Hahn, a local auctioneer; Donna Schmalzer, who has an office in Bath where she figures out people’s tax forms, and Tony Kovalovsky, former Bath police chief who is a member of the Colonial Regional Police Department. Grand marshal for the parade was Phillip Kulp, an insurance agent in Bath. He was driven in a convertible by Manny Mirabito. Football teams in the parade, along with their cheerleaders, were the Bath Lions and the Moore Township Red Hawks. The Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School had a big contingent of students in the march along Main Street, followed by their priest, Msgr. Francis Nave, in a classic convertible. The parish also had their Brownie Troop 8931 and Cub Pack 43. Girl Scout units from Christ Church were Senior Troop 8606, Junior Troop 8242, and Cadette Troop 8545, celebrating 100 years.

Little ones sitting on a curb who enjoyed the parade were Sofia Kostenbader, Emma Rabenold, and Rhylee Bruch.

Christmas House Tour float. There was a pirate theme among the Boy Scout troops in the parade, even a pirate ship from Venture Crew 470 and a float by Troop 33.

Rajah Shrine Forks of the Delaware had their line of tin lizzie cars buzzing around the parade route. Shriners are noted for their free hospital treatment to youngsters up to age 18 with crippling or burn injuries. Early in the parade was a float/wagon carrying members of the Bath 275th Anniversary Committee. They are holding many activities to benefit the celebration scheduled for August 2012. Northampton High School’s Big “N” Band, Northampton Middle School Little “N” Band and the Allentown “Almost” Hobo Band provided the music. Gymnasts and tumblers from Kids Co-Op were entertaining, as were a number of Dachshund dogs prancing along the street; the Gov. Wolf Historical Society had its house float announcing the annual Christmas house tour for this December 2 and 3, and marchers of all sorts provided an evening of fun for the better part of an hour.

Unbelievably, the holidays are upon us, which means lots of leftovers! Be kind to your plastic storage containers so that they will last for many holidays to come. To prevent tomato sauce stains, spray the inside of the plastic-ware with cooking spray before filling it with any food containing tomatoes. Bye, bye red dye! Giving your container a coating of cooking spray before freezing any left-overs will help the food to pop out easily while still frozen. If you find a lab experiment growing in your plastic container in the back of your fridge, scrub it with baking soda to remove foul odors and stains. Then wash with warm, soapy water and rinse.

November 3-9, 2011


The Rev. Barry Mitchell Pastor, Emmanuel’s Lutheran Church

All Saints Day November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, and All Saint’s Day (November 1) calls us to remember those who have died in Christ. The Christian community speaks honestly about human frailty and mortality. At the same time, we confess our faith in the risen Lord, in the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. While we may face dying or death with fear, we hear Jesus’ promise that he is with us in life and in death. Christ has claimed us in Holy Baptism. He nourishes us in the Holy Communion of his body and blood. He leads us to the new Jerusalem. There we shall join all the saints in praise of God, who has turned our graves into the doorway to eternal life. Imagine a sign on your door that proclaims you to be“Saint (insert your first name)”. Throughout the day, colleagues and friends address you as “Saint _______”. Now as the laughter subsides, admit it - you don’t feel like saint material. You’ve tried to live a reasonably good life, tried your best to be helpful to others and faithful to the Lord, but “Saint”? - not a chance. Of course, that’s the whole point. By ourselves, none of us is fit for the Kingdom of heaven. On our own merits, we could never take title to our heavenly mansions. Our halos are tarnished, and even our best days have moments we would rather forget. The title “Saint” seems to be reserved for the great ones of this world. Mother Teresa deserves sainthood. The disciples are saint material. Mary, the mother of Jesus humbly accepted her role - she deserves to be a saint. Throughout the ages, the Roman Catholic Church has elevated those whose lives have passed the rigorous testing for Sainthood. These are the unique few whose devotion has earned them the right to be called Saints. On All Saints day we pause to look at Sainthood in a different light. On this day we declare that all people who believe in Jesus and trust in him as Lord and Savior are Saints. We remember that all who have died believing in Jesus have gone to their reward and that none of us, dead or living, have earned it by the things we have done. Our Sainthood begins in our Baptism into the life and death of Jesus. It is by his merit alone that we are made right with God and eligible for Sainthood. And that is the reason that all of us can rejoice on this day - Jesus has conquered sin and death - even the worst of us can be redeemed and humbly wear the title Jesus earns for us: ‘Saint _______’.” May God bless your sainthood today!

Middle School school districts that are a part of the vo-tech board. The sale is expected to be finalized in another week. Gogel also said that millions of dollars will be saved by going with that land and demolishing the buildings that are a part of it. The school district still retains ownership of a 93-acre property in East Allen Township that long had been considered for building purposes. They will continue to own it, thinking ahead to the future. The East Allen Township Board of Supervisors had allowed use of the formerly zoned agricultural land for a school, and its zoning hearing board agreed with that decision. Five residents had opposed it on grounds that traffic conditions would prove dangerous at the intersection of Seemsville Rd. & Nor-Bath Blvd. (Rt. 329).

In my considered opinion, the Trust between our residents and the Board of Supervisors has weakened. It needs to be restored and strengthened with truth and good faith by government.

Northampton game Could determine if Nazareth wins Lehigh Valley title

Northampton’s Konkrete Kids will travel to Andrew Leh Stadium in Nazareth on Friday night. They could save a losing season by defeating the favored Blue Eagles, with the Lehigh Valley Conference championship in the balance for Nazareth. This past Friday, Nazareth edged Whitehall, 21-20, while Northampton lost to Parkland, 35-12. Parkland is the only team this season that has beaten Nazareth. The Blue Eagles have had their share of late rallies that have carried them to an 8-1 seasons.


Among many others, I am proud to have sponsored the legislation to establish our Farmland Preservation and Open Space Commission, as well as, our Environmental Advisory Council (EAC). Both groups are comprised of volunteers. A sincere Thank You for their dedication to the Township.



By their own admission both of my opponents are seeking six year full-time jobs with good pay and excellent benefits, as “working Moore Township supervisors”, most likely “Roadmaster Superintendent”. I am NOT! If elected, I plan to VOLUNTEER all of my time with no pay or benefits! I truly CARE about MOORE TOWNSHIP and I invite you to PUT ME TO THE TEST! One of my opponents was receiving medical and prescription insurance coverage from our school district (NASD) and was paid for not taking the coverage from the township for some time. The Moore Township Board of Auditors ruled that these monies had to be returned to Moore Township. The money was later returned without any interest or incident.. There were other supervisors who did not accept medical insurance and there was never any payment for not taking the coverage. The majority of the good deeds that this opponent has lauded, weren’t the majority on Township Time? Is the 24/7 Roadmaster, continually being advertised, to justify all of the overtime and compensatory time? 7 What is the INTENT here? InAREA many circles it is known as DECEPTION.
