School Board Sees Slides of Student’s Environmental Trip By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

On Monday at the Northampton Area School Board meeting, Student Council representative Ben Longacre showed slides of his trip to Japan. Earlier this year Longacre was part of the American Youth Leadership Program that took a large number of youths and five adults to Japan. It was entitled JAWS or the Japan-American Watershed Stewardship project. Longacre’s slides first

Ben Longacre showed Washington, D.C., where the group had orientation at the Catholic University of America, and then tours of many points of interest in the nation’s capitol before they flew to Tokyo, Japan. Many scenes were shown of Japan, as well as the environmental studies the youths did. Longacre said it was the best four weeks of his life and he hopes to return to Japan as

he pursues his career. Board Matters One of the items on Monday night’s agenda was to pass a resolution authorizing the administration and the solicitor to prepare and file all appeals necessary to classify the property at 1417 Laubach Ave. as exempt from real estate taxes. It is the site of the proposed new middle school, and Solicitor Steven Miller said, “The county makes the call.” Usually, public properties are exempt. Board President David Gogel recalled that when the school district bought the former Haff Hospital for its administration building, they had to pay property taxes for a while until negotiations were done with the county to change that policy. Solicitor Miller and the NASD administration will do that all over again in this instance. • These policies were adopted, effective Oct. 9, 2012: Sudden cardiac arrest, food allergy management, use of medications, controlled substances/paraphernalia, classroom animal maintenance/ safety, and child/student abuse. • Resignations were accepted from Roxann Martuscelli as cafeteria monitor at the high school; Phillip Haney, as marching band assistant at the high school; and Janet Ulshafer, gifted instructional assistant, for the purpose of super-annuated retirement. • Approved was the hiring of Barbara Watkins as a dis-

The weather was cloudy and cool, but the dedication of the Keystone Park gazebo warmed the crowd on Bath Community Day. As Sharon Davis remarked, “The gazebo epitomizes everything the Bath Business & Community Partnership stands for.” She said materials for the building were obtained at cost, and Curtiss Markulics, who did most of the woodwork, was a master carpenter in her eyes. She said that what the BBCP wanted to be in 10 years has been accomplished in so little time, including the farmers market and gazebo, which will be used for entertainment. $4,000 for the gazebo was obtained from the Main Street Lehigh Valley program, and no public money was needed. Ms. Davis said a plaque will be placed in the gazebo noting all the people who worked on the gazebo. “This was the most gratifying project I ever worked on,” she said as people came together and worked to get the project completed. Mary Kositz thanked the key people who helped and the private donations that made it possible to build the gazebo in less than one year, from June to September. “It was appropriate that it came during Bath’s 275th anniver-

Chuck’s Champions Scott Ellis of Danielsville has been gearing up for the ride of his life, a 600+ mile ride from Main to New York City for quite some time. The Danielsville man joined 19 other riders this past Sunday in Portland Maine and the group embarked on an eightday journey to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The MS Great 8 Foundation Ride is in its third year and includes the largest group of riders so far. The riders, from all over the United States will travel through eight states over the eight day period, ending their journey in New York City on October 14th.

habilitation facility that helps people regain their independence. Each of the riders has a story to tell, a story of why they choose to participate in the ride. Scott Ellis rides in memory of his father Chuck who lost his battle to MS in January of 2011. Charles Ellis was a resident of Moore Township for over forty years. He and his wife Dolores had two sons, Scott and his older brother Steve. Chuck was just 40 years old when he was diagnosed with MS in the late 80’s, a time when not much was known about MS or treatments for it. Chuck’s health began to fade after hazy eyesight led to his diagnosis. At that time, Scott Continued on page 18

OpinionHH Vibrant Communities, Strong Nation

By Chuck Hassebrook, Center for Rural Affairs Our nation asks profound sacrifice of military members and families, but rarely asks much of the rest of us. That is a problem because the challenges confronting America cannot be addressed without some sacrifice of immediate self-interest. Many Americans are prepared to sacrifice for the common good and recognize that their future is bound to the well being of their community and nation. Self-reliance and individu-

al effort have been critical to American success, and so has community. People taking responsibility for their own success; and also working together to improve their communities and the nation built this country. Both were essential to the pioneers. It took great selfreliance to survive on the prairie. But survival also depended on neighbors helping neighbors. Only together could people build churches, schools, organizations, and communities. And only together, pursing the common good, can we today govern America effectively. What are our Values? That starts by looking to our values. At the Center for Rural Affairs we evaluate legislation by asking if it creates genuine opportunity for all, fosters widespread ownership and individual enterprise, and builds strong com-

munities. Does it fulfill our obligation to leave the land to future generations as well as we receive it and does it ensure that all who contrib-

ute to America's prosperity share in it? A team will not be strong if its members are only out for themselves. The same is true of our nation.

Rep. Harhart Earns ‘Guardian of Small Business’ Recognition

The Pennsylvania Leadership Council of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has named Rep. Julie Harhart (R-Lehigh/ Northampton) a “Guardian of Small Business” for her outstanding voting record on pro-business legislation during the 2011-12 legislative session. “I recognize the importance of our small business community and have always advocated for legislation that allows these businesses to succeed,” said Harhart. “We have made a lot of strides in terms of making Pennsylvania more business friendly during this session and I look forward to continuing to support a pro-jobs, pro-business agenda as we look to the future. It is only through the

support and success of our small business community that we will be able to lower the unemployment rate and once again experience a healthy and robust economy. “I am honored to be among those legislators recognized by the NFIB and will continue to support our small business men and women in any way I can,” she said. “Guardians of Small Business” designations are awarded to legislators who consistently vote favorably on key small business issues. The votes tracked this session are among the highest priorities of NFIB’s small business agenda -- legal reform and regulatory relief, tax and fiscal policy, and unemployment and workers compensation reforms.

New Siding & Carport In Bethlehem

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip Bath Community Day worked out pretty good over at Keystoine Park. It’s narrow compared to over at Ciff Cowling Field, but folks were busy checking out all the vendors, looking at crafts and having things to eat, so there was plenty of room. The Bath Business & Community Partnership celebrated the opening of the new gazebo, and it was a rocking good time on the gazebo stage. When I saw the trailer coming in, I thought, are they gonna have pony rides? But all it turned out to be was the band having a trailer load of all their instruments and sound equipment. They had a good sound system, too, so you could hear every word of their country music songs. All in all, it

was a great day, and even the weather was okay. . . . Things have really cooled down, and you can tell it’s fall, and time to put on your sweaters and turn on the car heater. The leaves are turning colors around here now, too. . . . Even though the sun wasn’t shining, it didn’t rain more than a couple drops here and there, so folks enjoyed going from farm to farm over the weekend for the annual Northampton County tour. When the paper announced all the farms a couple weeks ago, I saw there was a story about more young people needing to get into farming, and really having family farms. It’s good we still have a nice amount of family farms around here, not the big ones, I guess they


call ‘em conglomerates, like there are in the Midwest . . . . The big league playoffs are going almost like expected. Those Cardinals are tough to beat, same as those Yankees. Washington, Cincinnati and Detroit have some wins, but I can’t see them beating the usual teams that have what it takes to rise to the top and win the games when they matter. As I said, it oughta be an interesting World Series when that comes along in this chilly weather. . . . Rt. 512 is now smooth all the way across in those three lanes. Looks good. The traffic lights are flashing, so by next week or maybe sooner they’ll be going red, yellow, and green. . . . If memory serves me right, Nazareth will have its Halloween parade this Saturday, the 13th. Northampton’s parade will be on the 18th, and Bath’s turn comes on the 23rd. The trick or treaters’ time is coming up soon, too, but it’s kinda different when Halloween comes in the middle of the week. . . .Guess I’ll cut this letter short, and tend to my leaves. Enjoy the fall.

Growing Your Business in 2012- Fantastic By CAROL RITTER

I walked into a coffee shop in Northampton last week. I asked the owner, “How’s business?” He responded, “FANTASTIC.” When I entered the cafe all of the seats were full and it was 9a.m. I could barely hear over the cloud of laughter and conversation. Packed full sold out-so busy-filled to the gills, that’s what all business owners want, right? I ordered my decaf and asked him why he thinks he hit the tipping point. “Well, last night I hosted a folk band here, not a seat to be had in the house. I’m always inviting musicians to play, hosting special events and I like working with charities, recently we raised over $2,000 for cancer.” Ok, folks, he gets it, he has three things happening here: 1. He’s increasing traffic to his cafe. 2. He’s giving back to the community. 3. He’s going the extra mile by hosting events and music. Those three things set him apart from your average cafe.

I love Starbucks coffee, I really like Dunkin Donuts coconut decaf, both national chains, both very successful. However, they can’t bring me a sense of community like our friend in Northampton. When growing your business it’s your job to have the better idea, to be one step ahead of the other guy and to boast your product every day, every week and every month. By the way, FANTASTIC translates into FANTASTIC revenue. In addition, customers feel like they must buy their morning “joe” from you. BTW - His coffee is FANTASTIC too!

Rauber will present his lecture, The Lizzie Tapes-A Paranormal Case Study, by candlelight at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 at The Governor Wolf Historical Society, 6600 Jacksonville Road, Bath. The presentation is an in-depth look at two different paranormal investigations of the infamous Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Mass. The house was the scene of a gruesome double homicide on Aug. 4, 1892 and is reputed to be haunted. Both investigations were filmed for TV shows. Rauber has been in the field of paranormal research for more than 45 years and has investigated haunting and poltergeist cases throughout the U.S. and in Europe.

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie


Football fans are wondering whether Alabama can complete the season without a defeat, beating last season’s impressive 11-1 record. The view among some forecasters is that the Crimson Tide faces only three teams

the rest of the season which might achieve an upset. Which three? On the 29th of October, Alabama plays Tennessee there. The Vols have a chance of an upset playing at home. On November 3rd the Crimson Tide goes to LSU. LSU may have the best chance to defeat Alabama of all the Tide’s foes. Texas A & M may have a chance on the 18th of November but the best chance in November for an opponent may be the match-up with Auburn on November 24th--at Auburn.

Northampton and Nazareth Suffer Losses This Past Friday It was a bad week on the local scene, as both Northampton and Nazareth lost their football games on Friday night. The Konkrete Kids were limited to two touchdowns, one in the second quarter and one in the final, as they lost to Emmaus, 34-14 in a Lehigh Valley Conference game on Friday night. Quarterback Nick Cook threw for 145 yards in the game, with one of five yards to Brandon Heimbach that scored. The last TD came on a four-yard run by Blake Boehm. Emmaus scored in all four quarters, 14 of the points in the first, single TD’s in the second, third and fourth, with the last one a two-point conversion after the touchdown. Northampton is now 2 and 4 on the season and 1 and 4 in the LVC. Tomorrow night, the Kids host the first place Easton Red Rovers. Parkland proved to be a tougher opponent than Nazareth expected last Friday, and after suffering a loss in the regional semi-finals last sea-

son, they turned the tables on the Blue Eagles this time, winning 42-21, similar to what they did last year in the regular season, a 47-21 Parkland win. Nazareth quarterback Parish Simmons had 122 passing yards and 123 rushing yards and two touchdowns, but Parkland clamped down on him most of the way. Sophomore running back Jordan Gray was held to 15 yards on five carries and after making a 25-yard reception was bowled over and did not return in the third quarter. The TD’s that Nazareth did get on the night were a 70yard run by Simmons in the first quarter, a 16-yard run by him in the second, and a 42-yard pass from him to Anthony Gaetaniello in the fourth quarter. Nazareth is now 4 and 2 overall and 3 and 2 in the LVC. Tomorrow night they host the Becahi Hawks in their annual Homecoming game at 7 p.m. It’s also Pink Night and all the Nazareth students at the game will be wearing pink shirts.

She also credited State Representative Marcia Hahn for her support of the revitalization efforts in Bath. Successful Day The seventh annual Bath Community Day overall was a success, drawing a large number of crafters and business vendors, who displayed their wares along the grounds of Keystone Park. While the weather was threatening, very little rain fell, and it did little to curb the enthusiasm of the visitors as they walked from one vendor to another, and stopped for food at the Bath Fire Fighters, Boy Scouts, and Christ U.C.C. Church stands. The youngsters had a great time in the hot air bounce, and on the see-saw and swings at the

park. More playground equipment is being put together and could be seen behind an orange netting.

Scouting leader tells Lions About involvement with troop

Russell “Arby” Beisel, District Director, Minsi Trails Council, Boy Scouts of America, met with members of the Bath Lions Club on Wednesday, Oct. 3 to acquaint them with their responsibilities, as they try to bring Boy Scout Troop 33 back to a better existence. The Bath Lions have been the charter sponsor of the troop for more than 70 years and has been joined by St. John’s Lutheran Church in Bath as a co-sponsor. Beisel said they are responsible for

the troop that has dwindled to six boys. They also own the trailer the troop uses. Troop 33 is a part of the North Valley District, which has 80 units. Cub Scouts are encouraged to advance into Boy Scouting as they go through the ranks, and while Cub Pack 33 and Venture Crew 470 are active at Christ U.C.C. Church in Bath, the Cub Scouts are not joining Troop 33, but are going to Troop 35 in Christ U.C.C., Little Moore, Danielsville, and elsewhere.

Beisel explained that troop leaders are required to take youth training and with it outdoor leader skills. Usually, the scoutmaster or leaders have a boy in the program, or they had a son as a scout in the past. Beisel noted that the end of January is charter time and if there aren’t enough boys by the end of March, the troop is history. No one from Troop 33, leader(s) or boys, were at the Lions meeting. The speaker encouraged the Lions to reach out to the Webelos Scouts, who should join the local Boy Scout troop. Two Joining Lions Lion Bill Falstich presided at the meeting. Two guests, who will be joining the Lions club on Oct. 17, were introduced, Melissa Brown and Kyle Grube. They will be installed by District Governor Linwood Gehris. Lion Marvin Werkheiser reported that the Bingo fund-raiser at Muhlenberg Hospital was a success. They are hopeful of having Bingo again in Northampton next summer at the Exchange fair. On Thursday, volunteers from the Lions had one of their four Adopt-A-Highway litter pick-ups along Rt. 512. This past Saturday, the Lions sold American flags as a fund-raiser at Bath Community Day. Beginning after Thanksgiving, the club will sell coupons that are good for poinsettia plants, wreaths, garland rope, cemetery blankets and cemetery logs for the Christ-

mas season, in cooperation with Filchner’s Produce in Klecknersville. Lions Awareness Day will be held on Oct. 20 at Christ U.C.C. Church, Airport Rd., when prospective Lions are invited to see who the Lions are and what they do. Displays will be placed to emphasize area activities. At the Nov. 3 meeting, April Kucsan, co-chairman of the Reading Action Program in District 14-K, will speak to the Lions at their dinner meeting in the fellowship hall of St. John’s Lutheran Church. The Lions will decorate the community Christmas tree at Monocacy Creek Park on Thanksgiving weekend so it is ready for the borough’s lighting ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 5 p.m.

Exchangites hear About F.B.I.; plan Parade, craft fair 17 will be at North Star Automotive, at the intersection of Brodhead Ave. & Fritz Dr., Bethlehem, at 6:30 p.m. Those attending will have dinner first, then decorate the club float that they will have in the annual Jack Frost Parade, the 64th the club is sponsoring, on Thursday, Oct. 18. Starting at 7 p.m., the parade will begin and end at Municipal Park Complex at Smith Lane & Washington Ave. There will be four divisions in the parade. Jarret and Sarah Schaffer are the parade committee chairpersons. Plans are also underway for the fall craft fair the Exchange will have on Sunday, Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the community center, where the public can see and select from a large number of items that are displayed.

Members of the Northampton Exchange Club heard a former FBI agent as their speaker at the Oct. 3 dinner meeting in the Community Center. As part of a crime prevention program, Albert Sproule, a former agent and presently assistant professor in the criminal justice undergraduate and graduate programs at DeSales University, told about the FBI and recent cases of potential terrorism in the United States.

A Christian’s Response to Technology This is a world of communication and change. The use of radio took 38 years to gain 50 million users. Move to the event of television which took 13 years to reach 50 million. Forward to the Internet which took only 4 years to have 50 million users! Now in just three years the iPod has reached 50 million users. Speed on to the fact that Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months. Fast forward to the fact that Wikipedia has over 13 million articles and that 78%%% of these are non-English. Following these trends in communication it is not surprising that last year one in every eight couples who married had met online! Currently, we hear futuristic terms such as “reverse mentoring” where parents need to be mentored by their 8, 10 and 12 year old children. Have you, like myself, asked technology usage questions of your children or grandchildren or great-grandchildren? The 12 year old will soon need mentoring by the 4 year old! Truly we live in a world of change. What does all this mean for us? We must understand how information is accessed and passed on to others. We need to evaluate and use information as it relates to our lives and value system. Next, we should explore how technology has altered cultural understanding. Social media has quickly become the vernacular of all people, but especially the under 20 age group. It is easy to become lost in the past and miss some of the signs of the times for creative communication. We should note that within cultural media there is a tendency to lose face to face sharing and become isolated behind the mass of words or pictures. People need opportunity for one on one fellowship. Lastly, let us be reminded that social media promotes its own agenda. The technology medium becomes the message board for programming bias values. This is a good reminder within our national election process. It is best to remember that God is the Master Communicator of His love in Christ. His sovereign will rests as the foundation of our universe. Even with the advances of the technological media our response should be for ourselves as well as shared with others: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12: 29-31) Worship will be followed by a covered dish brunch. There will be no Sunday School at the church this week.

A lady was observed passing through a hotel lobby several times. Finally a polite sailor stepped up to her asking: “Pardon me, but were you looking for a particular person?” “I’m satisfied if you are,” she said.

Golden Gleams

One miracle is just as easy to believe as another.

Lehigh Valley’s First Green Cemetery to Open in Fountain Hill The Board of Fountain Hill Cemetery today announced the official opening of Green Meadow, the first and only green cemetery in the greater Lehigh Valley and one of just six in the state of Pennsylvania. An opening event will take place at Fountain Hill Cemetery, on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at 12:15 p.m. The cemetery is located at 1121 Graham Street, in Fountain Hill. Situated within historic Fountain Hill Cemetery, Green Meadow is a natural burial ground of native wild flowers and grasses where the deceased are given green – or natural – burials. Unembalmed bodies are returned to the earth in vaultless graves and in caskets made from readily biodegradable materials, like pine, wicker, or cardboard. Graves are marked with indigenous fieldstones that are laid flush to the ground. The purpose is to allow remains to degrade naturally, rejoin the elements, and become part of the natural cycle of life. “We are pleased to offer families an opportunity to lay their loved ones to rest in a natural, green manner,” says Ed Vogrins, president

of the Board of the Fountain Hill Cemetery. “And with the meadow in full bloom and the woods rising behind it, Green Meadow couldn’t be a more beautiful place to do it.” In planning and designing this first phase of Green Meadow, the Board consulted with Mark Harris, a Bethlehem resident and author of the signature book on green burial, Grave Matters (www. “Green Meadow joins a green burial movement that’s changing modern funeral practices across the country,” says Harris. “Now Lehigh Valley families have a local cemetery where burials can be greener, simpler and more celebratory affairs.” The opening event will include brief remarks by Vogrins and Harris, and acknowledge the involvement of community members, including Moravian College and Spillman-Farmer Architects. Local cyclist and Spillman-Farmer architect, Pat Ytsma, was buried at Green Meadow in December 2011, the cemetery’s first green burial. Green Meadow joins Philadelphia’s West Laurel Hill and the Pittsburgh-region’s Penn Forest in bringing green burial to Pennsylvania.

Janet's Notebook

The same could be said of a dessert that Sue Franco has been making for years: Mocha Chocolate Cake. “My entire family and my neighbors look forward to having a piece of cake when I make this,” says Sue proudly. “It is one of the most moist cakes that I have ever made. If you like chocolate, you will enjoy this!!” Well, I sure do second that! This melt-in-your-mouth chocolate delight has all the sinful satisfaction you want from a chocolate cake, but with an added depth of flavor thanks to the addition of, you guessed it... coffee! Sue uses both freshly brewed and instant coffee powder to flavor her cake and creamy icing. All of these wonderful coffeeinfused recipes have me perking at a hundred miles an hour. The possibilities are literally endless. I can’t wait to dive into the bushels of other great eats that are being shared on justapinch. com. Decaf? No thanks. I have oodles to cook before I sleep!

by Janet Tharpe

On a chilly fall morning it’s often the promise of a steamy cup of coffee alone that can pry me from under the warm covers. There’s just something so fulfilling about the ritual and the dark, rich flavor - of a freshly brewed morning cup of joe. Imagine my pleasure, then, to find so many recipes that use this wonder drink as a secret ingredient! I had no idea the power of the bean...until now. For example, how do you feel about cappuccino in cookie form? Well, we couldn’t be more pro-cookie than we are for Didi Dalaba’s Cappuccino Caramel ones! “These babies are ‘rockin’ good’!!” smiles Didi, ever effervescent. “They are crispy and gooey, then throw in the flavors of the caramel and then the chocolate... oh my goodness good!!” A sweet, soft cookie with a delightful caramel crunch! Who could ask for more?! Well, ok, I could also ask for a piece of fudge. Deliciously creamy, Irish coffee fudge! Thanks to Heather M. Baker of Grove City, PA I need only go as far as my own kitchen for complete satisfaction. “All my friends love, love, love this fudge,” exclaims Heather, who adds instant coffee crystals to her fudge for just the right amount of coffee flavor. “Smooth and silky... I like to make this recipe and give it as gifts because [of the wonderful flavors.” A rich combination of Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, butterscotch morsels and marshmallow cream, this is one gift that I’ll gladly accept any day of the week.

Notational Vote To Clarify Expanded Bear Season The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners has approved technical changes to the final package of 201213 hunting seasons and bag limits for expanded bear seasons in Wildlife Management Units 2B, 5B, 5C and 5D. The technical amendment, which will become part of the final adopted package, specifies there will be a three-day special firearms bear season from Oct. 18-20 in WMUs 2B, 5B, 5C and 5D for certain hunters. Those hunters are limited to junior and senior license holders, disabled person permit (to use a vehicle) holders, and Pennsylvania residents only serving on active duty in U.S. Armed Services or in the U.S. Coast Guard. Also included are persons who have reached or will reach their 65th birthday in the year of the application for a license and hold a valid adult license, or qualify for license and fee exemptions under section 2706. This expanded bear opportunity runs concurrently with the special statewide threeday antlerless deer season for the same group of license holders, and was part of the original intent of the Board.

Know The Weather

Why, when the sun is close to the earth, are winter days cold? When the sun is more distant, months from now, days will also be warmer. One reason for this is the angle of the sun. Note on winter days how long the sun is on the horizon. The earth’s tilt is greatest, away from the sun, in winter, at the winter solstice to be specific. Drivers see the sun in their eyes through windshields in winter because it’s low. In summer the sun’s rays are more direct and also the sun shines much longer. The reason days don’t begin warming when they begin to lengthen at the winter solstice is because the earth has by then lost much of its heat from the preceding summer. It takes a long time for the earth to be reheated by the sun from direct and longer sunlight. By spring in March, days and nights will be equal in length but it won’t be until a month or two later that the effect of more sun will become very noticeable through warm days. And, of course, the weather remains warm or hot long after the hours of sunshine begin to decline once again in June at the time of the summer solstice. Weekend Forecast - Northampton County The cooler fall temperatures have settled in around the area, following last week’s 80 degree temps. Today is going to be a beautiful fall day with sunny skies and a high of 58. Tomorrow will be much the same with a chance of passing clouds. Saturday and Sunday will see warmer temperatures with a high of 60 and partly sunny on Saturday and a high of 64 with a chance of showers on Sunday. The extended forecast is calling for a high of 66 and sunny on Monday. For up to date information on local weather, visit or find them on facebook (Eastern PA Weather Authority).

was young but knew that the disease was having a crippling affect both physically and mentally on his dad. “He would have to call someone for help,” Scott said about helping his dad by driving him to work, “that killed him the most.” The progressive disease took so much away from Chuck physically that the family needed some help. They sought out help from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Delaware Valley Chapter. The organization was able to provide in home hospice care, support with treatments as they became available, necessary mobility items and above all education on MS and how it was affecting Chuck. “Without the society we would have been blind” Scott said. He, along with his family, is forever grateful for the support they received while Chuck was

battling through MS. Scott started giving back to the society by participating in MS Walks, which helped raise money and awareness. He learned about rides and other ways to help and found the Bike MS: PA Dutch Ride. After training for that first ride, Scott, with the help a loaner bike from Curt at Curt’s Cycles in Nazareth, participated in his first bike ride for MS – a two day, 150 mile ride through the PA Dutch countryside. He raised nearly $4,000 and gained a love for street racing. “It was such an accomplishment, I was hooked” Scott said of the feeling he had when completing that race. It has been ten years since that first race and his first dollar was raised. Scott has raised over $70,000 for the National MS Society, sometimes with his wife Janelle and their son Tucker by his side. He set his goal for the MS Great 8 ride at $10,000 and hopes that people will give what they can to help

him fight. In a sponsorship request letter, Scott said his main reason for riding is so that others do not have to go through what his father went through; “The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from Bike MS to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. My family has benefited greatly from these programs. Because we can fight this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to Bike MS, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS”, “ he said. The group is expected to complete their journey the morning of October 14 in Times Square, New York City.

Public to hear about Lehigh Valley Planning Program Renew Lehigh Valley (RenewLV) announces a series of public meetings to engage the residents of the Lehigh Valley in a regional planning project called Envision Lehigh Valley. The public meetings will garner residents’ views and input on the overall quality of life in their neighborhood and the greater Lehigh Valley. The Envision Lehigh Valley public meetings are intended to educate and to engage the residents of the Lehigh Valley in an integral planning process for the future of the community. According to the latest US Census data, the Lehigh Valley is projected to grow by another 188,700 people (32.6%), or 72,000 households, by 2030. The amount of open space and agricultural lands has decreased by 22% since 1975. Where will these households go? The median income in Lehigh County is $53,000 while the median income in Northampton County is $58,000; however, in one municipality in the region the median household income is as low as $36,202. Will there be enough jobs that are accessible for a wide variety of skills and education levels? What planning decisions must be made now in order to properly prepare for the challenges the Valley will face in the next twenty years? Public meetings will kick off with an introduction to the Envision Lehigh Valley project and its goals; however, the majority of the meeting will be spent listening to residents’ perspectives in facilitated small group discussions. A local meeting will be held on Thursday, October 11 at Nazareth Intermediate School from 6-8pm with others scheduled and being added. All information gathered will be analyzed by the Lehigh Valley Research Consortium and be used to develop five specific plans by the end of the three-year grant in 2014. Envision Lehigh Valley is a comprehensive approach to growth that considers the goals of the residents and the long-term impacts on the re-

gion. It is a three-year, $3.4 million Sustainable Communities grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that was awarded in November 2011. The project began in early 2012 and will conclude at year end 2014. The Lehigh Valley Sustainability Consortium is comprised of partners from all sectors across the Lehigh Valley. Additional information can be found online at: www.
