Ribbon Cut for Opening of Short Term Rehab at Gracedale

By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

A ribbon cutting ceremony, sponsored by the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce, marked the dedication of a new short-term rehabilitation unit at Gracedale, the Northampton County Home, on Monday afternoon. The ceremonial ribbon was jointly cut by Helen Fischl, the first admission to the unit, and John Stoffa, Northampton County Executive, as they stood with a number of dignitaries. Millard D. Freeman, Gracedale Administrator, welcomed more than 50 persons present, noting that the opening of the unit is a “great milestone,” as the Southeast I section that was officially closed in August 16, 2011 has been re-opened “as a place to restore life and give people hope.” Stoffa noted that Gracedale is ideally located in the center of the county, and with the new rehab unit is providing “a very valuable service.” Robert F. Werner, a member of Northampton County Council, noted that it took eight months to make the change. He commended the staff as an “outstanding group

of people who care,” and remarked that the unit is a “a new era of stewardship at one of the finest facilities in the Lehigh Valley.” Tina Smith, president of the Nazareth Chamber, led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance and introduced a number of local dignitaries. They noted their thanks for building a facility in Northampton County, making it a better place to live. Background Faced with a dwindling census at Gracedale, residents of Southeast-I were relocated through the vast facility in Upper Nazareth Township last year. The administrators completed an operational assessment, in which they planned to re-open SE-I as a 26-bed short-term rehabilitation unit and converting one of the four-bed rooms to a satellite therapy gym to enhance the rehabilitation process. Adjacent to the short-term unit is long-term and respite care. STR offers quick admissions seven days a week with 24-hour visiting. Benefits include Wi-Fi, on-staff pastor, hospice care, local trips for Continued on page 16

Bath Borough Council on Monday had a long discussion over proposed parking regulations, where there should be parking and where it will be restricted, and on one side or the other of certain downtown streets. It is intended to make it easier to park making it better for business. Solicitor Blake Marles will draft the ordinance and it will be advertised so people know what is ahead. Council also has a proposed parking lot ordinance, and Borough Manager Tom Petrucci will prepare those words for advertising. Another discussion was what to do with a propery the borough owns at 224 W. Main Street. Proposals that came up were to demolish it

for open space and combine that with a walking trail; clean up the building and convert it into a visitors center; or just tear it down for a parking lot (which would also need landscaping to suit the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Resources, who would provide a $46,000 matching grant.) Councilman Mike Reph said the building was originally purchased to tie in with a Rails-to-Trails project that would include an area where once was a railroad bridge. Other Matters • Jeff Buffington of Old Forge Drive complained of urine odors from a neighbor’s home where there are three cats and five dogs that the elderly residents have in the house. Petrucci, zoning officer Dennis Huth and Colonial Regional Police responded to the problem, but Petrucci

said there is nothing in a local ordinance that deals with smells from a home. Council president Robert Fields said a state health inspector could deal with the problem. • Jim Morgan of 208 S. Walnut St. told Council he wants to put siding on his home, but was told it is in an historic district. He said that paperwork in meeting with the Historic Architectural Review Board to get approval would delay the project. He said he and his wife have saved up in order to afford putting white siding and blue shutters on the home to restore it to its former beauty. Council voted to approve the work now. • Clark Smith questioned about the 241 E. Main St. property that is on hold by a bank. He said he has a water problem from drainage off the Continued on page 7

Bath Community Day This Saturday The 7th annual Bath Community Day will be held this Saturday October 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Keystone Park in Bath. Sponsored by The Bath Business & Community Partnership, Community Day has been put together for the young folks, as well as the ‘young at heart!’ Children’s events, live music, food and fun are scheduled for the day. Plenty of crafters and busi-

ness vendors will be there. For food lovers, there will be plenty to choose from - barbecue and hot dogs, peach cobbler and more. For those who would rather just kick back and relax, bring a chair (don’t forget a blanket) and stay a while to enjoy the live bands and entertainment. The Bath Farmers Market and BBCP volunteers have just about completed the new gazebo at the park. An offi-

cial dedication will happen at 1 p.m. So be sure to stop by and meet those volunteers who have been working hard to complete this project. Also be sure to stop by the BBCP tent for more information on volunteering in your community as well as the opportunity to pick from the lucky ducky pond to win prizes. For more information, please visit www.bathborough.org.

The End of Another Season

By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News

The Bath Farmers Market ended their fourth season in operation at Keystone Park last Friday with a promise to return next year and continue offering fresh, local produce all summer. Throughout the year, vendors sold their seasonal vegetables and fruits including herbs, sweet corn, tomatoes, strawberries and, fall favorite, apples. But the Bath Farmers Market is much more than fresh produce. Continued on page 16

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip The leaves are falling steadily, a little slow, but they’re starting to cover the ground. Some folks who had been up in the Poconos said they saw the leaves had turned all red, yellow and orange already. Not so much here yet. But it’s fall, and they will. . . . .This Saturday, October 6th, is Bath’s Community Day down at Keystone Park. Let’s hope the weather stays just like it is, a little cool, but no rain, so we can all enjoy a nice time. . . . . That was some football game the Eagles played on Sunday with those New York Giants. First it looked like they were gonna win, then it looked like they’d lose with a field goal, and lo and behold, a timely pass interference call from a regular referee and the Giants kicker missed his target. I can see why Michael Vick said football takes some years off your life. . . . Now that the Phillies are out of the playoff race, even though

they beat the champion Nationals, it’s gonna be interesting to see who’s in it and who lives another day, and maybe gets into the World Series later on. This wild card setup oughta make it more interesting. I still think baseball is the best sport, even better than football and hockey. . . . Nazareth and Northampton were back to their usual ways on Friday, Nazareth winning and Northampton coming up short. Oh well, that’s high school football and the parents and friends got to enjoy some excitement. . . . I hear Manny Mirabito, Jim Pasquariello and a few others were happy that borough council dropped the garbage dumpster ordinance they were working on for a while. . . . The latest is that half the three-laner down along 512 is now a smooth blacktop. But the traffic lights aren’t on yet. With all these new lights along 512, it’s getting to be like stopping in city

traffic. . . . Farmers market is closed for the season, but you can still get fresh vegetables like potatoes, corn, tomatoes, peppers and radishes down at the Hunsicker farm, and potatoes and apples up at the Padula farm. . . . Have a great week, and enjoy this weekend, gang!

Judge Halts PA Voter ID Law

By JOE KORBA The Home News A decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson has postponed Pennsylvania’s Voter ID law. Judge Simpson ordered the state not to enforce the law in this year’s presidential election. His decision could be appealed to the state’s Supreme Court. The law could still be enacted next year, even with Simpson’s ruling. Simpson listened to testimony concerning PA’s efforts to ease the process of getting a valid ID. He heard accounts of long waits and ill-informed DMV clerks, impeding legitimate voter’s attempts to get a state-issued photo ID. Under guidelines given to him by high court justices,

that eligible voters must be able to cast a vote under the ID law, Simpson blocked it. The 6-month-old law, considered to be the nation’s toughest, has caused a debate among voting rights advocates. Many consider the law a GOP initiative to keep voters away from the polls in November. Lower voter turn-

Natural Perspectives For the Health-Minded Individual DR. GLENN CLEARIE DC www.drclearie.com

Quantum Leap Thinking

Some time ago I read a book entitled Quantum Leap Thinking, An Owner’s Guide to the Mind by James J. Mapes. I enjoyed it so much I have read it three times since. Remarkable book. I would recommend this book to anybody with a heartbeat. This book covers fascinating material about how the mind works and perceives. The material includes creativity, risk, fear, visualizations, emotions, balance, paradigms, personal values, managing change, and a host of other concepts. It applies to all ages, both genders and can be looked at through the lens of our personal and professional lives. This material is relevant. This past Friday, I drove up to Connecticut to meet with the author, James Mapes, personally. An extremely approachable man, he exuded calmness and confidence. We sat for almost three hours and covered such a wide range of

topics that time spent seemed like minutes. My reason for meeting with this gentleman was because after seeing and treating thousands of people over the years I have become aware that oftentimes the physical ailments that people present with can be traced back to their mind, the mental garbage, the wrong “imprints” on our subconscious that impacts us for the worse. I desire to help these individuals more effectively. Yes, raging sciatica is a pinched nerve and the mind clearly may not have created it, but it could. What about chronic lower back pain year over year, chronic headaches, daily upset stomach, nervousness, anxiety, depression, patches of hair loss, brain fog, heart arrhythmias, and a host of other conditions that fall into the “grey area” of medical science. The “we don’t know what the cause is but we have

a pill for the symptoms” category. Is the problem always a prescription medicine deficiency inside the body? Absolutely not. I do not presume to think that this gentleman holds the world’s knowledge in his hands yet I do perceive he has a sliver of it! I also understand that three hours is not enough time to understand the idiosyncrasies of the mind. But it’s a start. This article is a call to arms of sorts for those individuals who know, who feel, are aware that there exists an incongruence between their physical and non-physical, an imbalance they just can’t quite put their finger on, an understanding that healing needs to take place on a different level and with a different approach then modern medicine provides. Unresolved guilt, immobilizing fear, wrong perceptions, indoctrinations, that govern our day to day life and limits the precious little time that we have here on earth NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED so we can live our lives to the full! If this article strikes a chord with you, I want to encourage you that there is hope. Absolutely. You do not need to suffer. The journey into your own mind may be where you need to shine the light on. You may just be surprised by what you find. You may finally find yourself. “Natural Perspectives” is a health commentary only and does not claim to diagnose and/or make treatment recommendations.

Grow Your Small Business - Regulars

By CAROL RITTER

Outstanding customer service, so longed for by consumers, not always up to par and sometimes an outrageous failure. I walked into a donut shop recently, stood in line for my coconut decaf until the very friendly cashier offered to help me. As I was waiting for my order, an older gentleman arrived and ordered a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, two pumpkin donuts, a coffee, and to top it off, some crispy potato tots. I was dreaming that some day I would order that, especially the pumpkin donuts. When it was time for him to pay the cashier said, “You are a “REGULAR” and yesterday we charged you the wrong amount of money for your donuts.” (he eats them every day??). He said, “Yes you did” and she told him that today his donuts were free! The smile on his face reached from here to California, he graciously thanked her and looked over at his friend to share the good news. The friend replied, “Whoa, she gave you free donuts?” “I’m going to have to become a “REGULAR”. How much do we love FREE? It’s so simple yet so under used. My definition of REGULARS is loyalty. They show up at least every week, they love that you know their name, they enjoy your product and many times the price is not the first reason they shop with you. I truly believe businesses can’t survive without regulars. Those folks that love you to death even when things go wrong. I read somewhere that we all have 10 people in our lives that we love, trust and we tell our troubles to. Well, every time a customer is offended, trust me it’s going out to those 10 others and then their 10 others and on and on. Three basic tips for keeping the regulars; 1. Set a great example- your staff will act like you act 2. Set your expectations high 3. Build your reputation around outstanding customer service I’m still jealous that that gentleman eats donuts everyday or maybe I have DONUT

ENVY. One thing for sure he will be back tomorrow, I’m sure to fill up on pumpkin donuts, after all it is pumpkin season!! Carol serves as a featured writer for the Home News and the Lehigh Valley Chamber Blog

Lopsided scores as Nazareth Wins and Northampton Loses Nazareth scored a big 4221 win over Freedom, while Northampton was on the short end of a 42-12 game vs. Allentown Central Catholic in Friday night football. Much of the scoring in the Nazareth game was between quarterback Parish Simmons and back Anthony Gaetaniello, three of them for touchdowns on tosses of 59, 42 and 39 yards. The Blue Eagles had 454 yards on total offense. Jordan Gray did his part, scoring on a 2-yard run and a 4-yarder. Ben Wieczorek hit six for six on his extra point kicks. Nazareth is now 4 and

1 on the season, 3 and 1 in the Lehigh Valley Conference, and will go to Parkland on Friday night, which should be another good game between two strong teams. Kyle George got two touchdowns, one on a 70-yard pass play from Nick Cook and another on a 25-yard pass in the first two quarters, but that was all there was for the Konkrete Kids as Central Catholic rolled with 14 points in the first quarter and 21 big ones in the final. Northampton is now 2 and 3 overall and 1 and 3 in the LVC. They travel to Emmaus tomorrow night.

By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Lehigh Township’s Board of Supervisors had a kickoff meeting with the firm of Buchert-Horn this Tuesday on proposals for the Master Concept Plan. It is a study on the building needs of the

municipal government, mostly for the maintenance building. Department heads were present to assist in determining those needs. At the supervisors meeting on Sept. 25, Township Manager Alice Rehrig noted: • October 22 will be start of the leaf collection in the township. • $27,500 from the Northampton County gaming fund may be designated for a new police car, a new phone system, and a computer server in the 2013 budget. The first meeting to work on the budget will be held on Oct. 15. Ms. Rehrig said she is hoping the budget can be adopted by the Dec. 11 meeting. The supervisors approved three resolutions for three projects from the Monroe County gaming fund: document imaging, municipal equipment, and police equipment. Adopted were two minimum municipal pension obligations – police, in the amount of $195,212.00, and non-uniformed personnel, $41,217.16. Solicitor David Backenstoe told the board that three agreements need to be worked out with the McAuliffe Hauling Co. concerning road improvements, impact and weight limit on Timberline Road.

a time to bless pets and animals, creatures that St. Francis of Assisi called his brothers and sisters. Brother Francis preached that the world was created good and beautiful by God; that human and beast have the ability to praise God; and that humans are to protect and enjoy nature as part of their stewardship of all of God’s created order. He is traditionally remembered for his life and ministry with a Blessing of Animals. On Sunday, October 7th at 2:00 p.m. St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church will hold a Pet & Animal Blessing (in the side yard between two parking lots). Parishoners will gather to offer thanks and praise for God’s creation, and pets will receive a blessing designed especially for them.

News Sermonette The Rev. Lamar H. Handwerk Pastor, St. Peter’s U.C.C., Seemsville

If You Have The Faith Of A Mustard Seed... Let me tell you a story. Many years ago shoe company sent one of its sales people to a far away country to start a business. After a few months he sent back the message: “Coming home, nobody wears shoes here.” The same company sent another sales person to the same backward company in his place. After a few months she wrote the home office this note: “Send more order forms - nobody wears shoes here.” The second salesperson saw the opportunity in her situation - not the difficulty - and more - she believed in her product - and because of that she succeeded where the first salesperson failed. Faith is somewhat like pregnancy. You simply can’t make a valid distinction between having a little faith and a lot of faith anymore than you can claim that someone is a little bit pregnant but not really a lot pregnant. If we believe - even a little - even the smallest amount -then my friends we are on the right track. on hand for senior citizens, their families and caregivers,” Hahn said. “Free refreshments will also be available and my staff and I will be giving away door prizes. Local singer and guitarist Bruce Stimmel will also provide entertainment.” St. Luke’s Hospital and Health Network will be administering flu shots. No appointment is necessary; however, anyone wishing to be vaccinated should bring his or her Medicare card to the senior expo. Easton Hospital will also be providing blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose screenings. “In addition, vision screenings will be performed, compliments of Clear Vision, and the PPL (Pennsylvania Power and Light) E Power team will

be offering tips for saving electricity,” added Hahn. For more information, please call Hahn’s Nazareth district office at (610) 7462100.
