Farm Aid Celebrates Sustainable Family Farming

By JOE KORBA The Home News

The legendary country singer, his gray hair in twin braids and his obligatory cowboy hat perched upon his head, wishes he didn’t have to be in rural Pennsylvnia putting on a show for over 30,000 fans. “I’m sorry to have to be here, this problem should have been solved years ago,” Willie Nelson said at a press conference prior to the 27th annual Farm Aid benefit concert held at Hersheypark Stadium on Saturday. The problem Mr. Nelson speaks of is the ongoing and seemingly worsening plight of family farmers throughout the United States. Plagued by the summer drought this year, as well as the encroach-

ing threat of industrial farming, smaller family farms are facing existential dangers, both natural and economic. ------------------------------

“I’m sorry to have to be here, this problem should have been solved years ago,” Willie Nelson

----------------------------Since its inception in 1985, Farm Aid and its board of directors, musicians Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, have raised awareness of the issues that affect farmers throughout the country as well as promoted the virtues of sustainable local farming.

Carbon Monoxide Fumes Sicken 18 at Trader Joe’s

A problem with five forklift batteries that were being charged is believed to have been the cause of carbon monoxide fumes, which led to 18 of the 197 employees at the local Trader Joe’s warehouse feeling ill early Sunday morning. Those 18 were transported to local hospitals for evaluation and treatment. High levels of the deadly gas were detected from the forklift batteries in some parts of the 800,000 square foot building in East Allen Township. Firemen discovered the

leak when they used meters. All of the employees were evacuated not long after the problem began shortly after 7 a.m. Sunday. Once the huge building was ventilated, all were allowed to return inside shortly before 11:45 a.m. East Allen Township Vol. Fire Co., East Allen Township Ambulance Corps, and several other units responded to the incident. The firefighters responded when an automatic fire alarm sounded at the warehouse along 6885 Stone Post Rd., Bath. Along with East Allen, led by Asst. Fire

Chief Ray Anthony, were the Bath Firefighters, Hanover Twsp. Fire Dept., and emergency management agencies from Northampton and Lehigh counties. Sunday afternoon, personnel from the federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration came to the scene for an investigation of how the leak occurred. OSHA will complete its investigation and release their findings within the next six months. Trader Joe’s has had the local warehouse since 2009 for its packaging operations.

OpinionHH Curbing Underage Drinking

By State Representative Marcia Hahn 138th Legislative District

The House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing to examine two pieces of legislation I am hopeful we will have the opportunity to vote this fall. They both deal with underage drinking and public drunkenness on college and university campuses, two problems we need to confront more seriously. Senate Bill 941 would increase the possible fine for

LATTE M

public drunkenness from a maximum of $300 to a maximum of $1,000. It would also raise the fine for second and subsequent violations of purchasing, consuming, possessing or transporting liquor or malt or brewed beverages by someone under the age of 21 from up to $500 to up to $1,000. Senate Bill 943 would establish an alcohol offense prevention fee which would be allocated to eligible municipalities for operation of an alcohol offense prevention unit by law enforcement officers. In other words, if alcohol-related offenses such as underage drinking, public drunkenness or furnishing alcohol to minors are committed in a municipality in which a college or university is also located, those individuals who are convicted of such offenses would be assessed an extra $100 fee per offense for payment to the municipality for its local law enforcement officers to operate

As many of you have already heard, the Northampton Area School District recently made changes to the allowable foods that are typically delivered to classrooms for parties and snacks. The District provided a thorough list of items that are permissible to be delivered to the school by parents/relatives, or sent with the students. The district hopes that it is understood that the purpose behind these changes are due to an increase in students with severe food allergies attending our schools, alignment with recent changes in the healthy foods initiatives...and is not meant to be "restrictive" towards individual children. Please note two important factors regarding these recent changes. 1. This procedure applies to classroom snacks and parties, and NOT to packed student lunches. 2. This procedure takes effect immediately, however if you need to discuss specific issues...please contact the principal. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and we hope that these changes can be completed seamlessly. Remember, this change is not meant to restrict children...it is to ensure the survival of children!

Since every school district in the state of Pennsylvania must include a dental component, NASD is very fortunate to have a Dental Hygiene Services Program in place since 1975. Mrs. Arcury will be very busy performing the annual dental inspections throughout the district in the ten schools which include both public and non-public schools. The main focus of the program is education. So after Mrs. Arcury is done with the dental inspections, she returns to each elementary school to provide classroom education in every grade K through 6. At the secondary level, she acts as resource person in conjunction with the science and health curriculum at that level. She in invited each year to be the guest speaker for all the tenth grade health classes where

Grow Your Small Business Coffee Spill!

By CAROL RITTER OMG, you will not believe this one. So there I am, looking forward to a leisurely weekend with my family, the weather was sunny and crisp, just right for my favorite white cotton v-neck sweater with the navy trim. Cracked out the sunglasses, the beach chair and the sneaks to head down to my grandson’s soccer games. No time to make breakfast so I decided to stop along the way. My friend said, “Let’s sit at the counter, it will be faster.” So we sat down next to Scott who was enjoying his dippy eggs and bacon. “Do you eat here often?” “Unfortunately,” he replied. I gasped. A waitress, Sharon, was fixing the coffee urn and complaining to the other waitresses that she couldn’t do anything until it was fixed. So we waited and waited and waited and no one even said hello and no less than 6 staff passed us filling coffee cups, juice and grabbing the cereal. Ten minutes had passed so I asked Scott if he knew who would be our waitress, he said Sharon. Mad as hell, Sharon. Oh no, it was obvious to me no one in the place was going to help Sharon with her customers. So, I went to the hostess who was windexing the pie counter, and politely asked who our waitress was, explaining that we had been here for 10 minutes and no one has said hello or taken our order. She hustled to the counter and got us beverages. Then we noticed that Sharon was waiting on a long line of booths next to the counter. The buzz began, those counter customers are not happy that they have been ignored. So, mad as hell Sharon arrives, would you like coffee, we said we already ordered drinks but we would like to order breakfast. So, again, we waited and waited for our omelets as Sharon began running in and out of the kitchen. Now we are up to 35 minutes and no breakfast. We were stuck, we finally got our drinks and patiently waited. Scott began to laugh, “I told

you the service here stinks.” And then it happened, as the staff was running behind the counter they bumped into each other and we saw it coming like a slow motion movie, the coffee pot hit the juice machine and coffee flew up into the air and the coffee drops landed all over my white sweater. This is Sharon’s opportunity and she took it, “SHE SPILLED COFFEE ON MY CUSTOMERS!” The hostess ran over and said, “Of course, your breakfast is free, what can I do for you?” Sharon threw her co-worker under the bus plus it was getting close to TIP TIME, so she had to move. I’m very familiar with the, “I’ll be nice to you when it’s tip time” scam. Too bad, Scott just left and missed the highlight of the breakfast. Here’s the problem; 1. Leadership, Leadership, Leadership, they are responsible, they allow this behavior. Maybe they need, “Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network, Robert Irvine would say your customer service stinks Solution # 1: training, training, training,

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie

BASEBALL✷ ✷ ✷ One of the surprises in the American League is the repeated failure of the league’s highest paid players to come through in the clutch--that is, to get hits which drive in runs. Two players for the Detroit Tigers, the highest paid twosome in the league, who have high batting averages, nev-

ertheless have been failing to earn their huge salaries in key situations. That’s why the Tigers have not been leading their division all year, except for a few days. In a July game, the Tigers were trailing 1-0 with a man on third base. A fly out or grounder by the next hitter would have tied the game. Who was the batter? Miguel Cabrera. Who was the next batter? Prince Fielder. The runner was left on third. This has happened often. Hitting home runs is exciting and both these Tigers have hit many. But too often, they and other Tigers have been failing to get key hits.

Northampton beats Becahi; Nazareth loses to Whitehall The tables were turned in Lehigh Valley Conference football on Friday night, as Northampton’s Konkrete Kids whipped Becahi at Green Pond and Nazareth’s Blue Eagles lost a close one to visiting Whitehall. Northampton scored in the first three quarters as they easily defeated Becahi, 35-6. In the first quarter, Kyle George took a pass from quarterback Nick Cook and ran 23 yards for the touchdown. Cook ran it in from one yard out for a second quarter TD, and Ramos took a nine-yard pass from Cook for another score in that quarter. Becahi got its only TD in the second quarter when Michael McDaniel ran the ball in from four yards out, but failed on an extra point try. Northampton scored another pair of touchdowns in the third quarter – one on an 88-yard pass play from Cook and another by DeAngelis on

a four-yard run. All of Kern’s extra point kicks were good for the Konkrete Kids. Whitehall was tied with Easton after Friday’s game when they held off a surging fourth quarter flurry of touchdowns by Nazareth to prevail, 28-21. Until that final quarter, it was all Whitehall, led by quarterback Nick Shafnisky, who was playing with an injured ankle. The first score for Whitehall, however, happened when Jake Wygant intercepted a Parish Simmons pass and scored from 27 yards out. Whitehall made it 14-0 in the second on a Jim Wah oneyard plunge, and added their third touchdown in the third quarter on a Ryan Bonshak 11-yard run. Then came the fourth quarter and Nazareth was desperate to get on the score board. Gray went to town with an 8-yard pass from quarterback

St. Paul’s scores sweep In Suburban dart league

Defending champion St. Paul’s UCC of Northampton proved again on Monday that they’re looking for a repeat. They scored their second three-game sweep in three weeks of play in the Suburban Inter-Church Dart Baseball League, this time defeating a former champion, Salem Lutheran of Bethlehem, 9-6, 6-3, and 8-5. The winners had Jennifer Erkinger, 7 for 12 with a home run; Jason Gross, 7 for 12; Kevin Gross, 6 for 12, and David Stubits, 5 for 10. Salem: Scott Hoffert and Walt Hoffert, both 6 for 14, and Bill Hoke, Jr., 5 for 13. On the local scene, both Bath teams lost two and won one game. Bath Lutheran lost 3-2, won 15-7, and lost 11-9 at DrylandTrinity in Hecktown. Bath: Matt Creyer, 7 for 15; Doug Moser, 6 for 10; Dellie Iasiello, 5 for 8; Don Miller, 5 for 15 and a homer; Lee Creyer, 4 for 9 and a home run. ”Doc” Cavallo and Candy Miller also homered. Hecktown: Al Gilbert, 7 for 14; Bernie Yurko, 6 for 14; Shawn Sigley, 5 for 13; Larry Golick, 4 for 11; and Earl Sigley, a round tripper. Christ UCC won 5-4, then lost 5-3 and 4-3 at St. Stephen’s Lutheran in Bethlehem. Bath: Garry Hunsicker, Simmons and an extra point by kicker Ben Wieczorek. Seconds later, Simmons ran it in from five yards and another good extra point by Wieczorek. Whitehall scored what proved to be the winning TD when Shafniusky had a 62-yard run after he had completed an 11-yard pass to Seth Summer. Shafnisky got away from a tackle by Jim Wah to get the score. Nazareth got closer to Whitehall when Simmons faked to tailback Gray and took off on a 34-yard scoring run, but Shafnisky ran out the clock and the game was sealed in Whitehall’s favor. Friday night at 7 p.m., Northampton will have its homecoming game as they host Allentown Central Catholic on Al Erdosy Field, while Nazareth will welcome Freedom at Andy Leh Stadium.

Sportsmen Get the Full Story on Marcellus Shale and Natural Gas By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

At their request, a geologist from Groundwater Environmental Services in Exeter, Pa., who is also a member of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, spoke to members and del-

egates of the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs on Monday night at a meeting in the East Bath Rod & Gun Club. Joseph Casey noted in the beginning that drilling for oil began in Pennsylvania with

Edwin Drake in 1859, but now the natural gas industry has 3,000 wells in which drilling takes place thousands of feet below the surface through shale deposits to reach natural gas. His power point slides showed not only the history, but also the natural gas revolution across the U.S. and that the footprint of Marcellus Shale starts with deposits of shale left from streams and rivers over millions of years. Casey said natural gas is a clean, abundant and versatile resource that goes into heating and cooling, provides light and heavy duty transportation, generates electricity, and feeds industry. There is dry gas and wet gas, and it is the dry gas that has been produced in northeastern Pennsylvania in such mass amounts that it exceeded supply and demand, thus making its price very low. As a result, some driller have moved west for more profit. Casey said that drillers must first get landowner rights and educate them, and when there is good order there is less impact. The shale deposits are usually at a maximum of 250 ft. thick, and are 8,000 to 12,000 ft. down. Seismic exploration tells where it is best to drill. Chapter 78 regulations are closely followed in Pennsylvania, and samples in a radius of 2,500 to 4,000 ft. must be reported to Pa. DEP. The wells go vertically down about 7,000 ft. and then laterally about 9,000 ft. Casings protect the fresh water aquafer which is down to 1,000 ft. The shale is down 8,000 ft., where any water that is there is not potable. After the drilling is done, and no longer used the 2,500 ft. of land around it is reclaimed. Casey pointed out that the Marcellus Shale Coalition of 300 members focuses on Continued on page 8

Exchange hears about library; Plans Christmas home contest At a recent dinner meeting of the Northampton Exchange Club, the head librarian of the Northampton Area Public Library spoke to the members and detailed the functions of the facilities and how its patrons are using them. The Exchange board approved a donation to the library for the purchase of a book in memory of Robert Mushrush, a former member of the club and a Golden Deeds Award recipient, who died recently. The club had an out-of-town meeting this past Wednesday

at the Amore Vineyards & Winery, 7054 Beth-Bath Pike, Bath. They enjoyed a salad and pizza along with the wine tasting, and then had a guided tour of the vineyards and winery. Another action the board recently took was to have a Christmas home decorating contest in Northampton this year. Frank Marakovits will serve as chairman of the committee, which also includes Rodger Berg, John McKenzie, Linda McKenzie and Harold Schisler. They will meet soon to work out the details.

There are at least three locations near Williamsport that treat frack water, only 20% of which is returned from wells. Natural gas is methane, he noted. Topping said he was interested in knowing what is done to correct problems, when or if they occur. Casey said the Right to Know Act in Pa., requires that people’s questions get answered. Asked how long it takes to get a permit, Casey said about 90 days. Erosion Sediment Control permits are required under Chapter 102.

H&R Block tax professionals Pass IRS competency test

It’s 120 questions long and can take up to two and a half hours to complete. For the first time, the IRS is requiring paid income tax return preparers to pass a basic competency test. Recently, two H&R Block tax professionals at the Nazareth office passed the test to become IRS Registered Tax Return Preparers (RTRPs). Included among the topics these professionals were quizzed on were the requirements for claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit, sources of income, the taxability of various income sources and general ethical requirements. “H&R Block, which requires new and returning tax professionals to complete inhouse testing, has supported requiring all tax preparers

to pass a basic competency test,” said Amy McAnarney, president of H&R Block’s U.S. retail tax unit. “Taxpayers deserve to know that their tax professionals are up-to-date on the current tax code and are trained in helping them claim every credit and deduction for which they qualify.” In 2010, the IRS announced reforms requiring all paid tax return preparers to register with the IRS and get a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). Most paid preparers will be required to complete the one-time RTRP competency test by Dec. 31, 2013 to become registered tax return preparers. In addition to passing the test, 15 hours of continuing education must Continued on page 17

How is a stationary front formed? What causes most of them in fall and winter? A stationary front usually results from the movement of a cold air mass into a mass of warmer air. Instead of forcing a passage and breaking through, some- times the cold front’s winds blow parallel to the juncture of the two air masses. The cold air mass thus stands still as far as for- ward movement is concerned. The warm air mass sends its winds parallel to the juncture line (the stationary front), but in exactly the opposite direction of those of the cold air mass. In summary, the stationary front is set up when a warm and cold air mass meet and neither is strong enough to dissipate the other.

Weekend Forecast Northampton County The Eastern PA Weather Authority is calling for variable cloudy skies and a passing shower on Thursday with a high of 70 degrees. Friday is going to be cloudy with showers throughout the day and a cool 68 degrees. Saturday may see some showers but will be partly cloudy with a high of 68 degrees. Early forecasting is looking at 68 degrees and partly Sunny on Sunday and Monday.

Pension plans approved, but one Sparks debate at Borough Council By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News Northampton Borough Council approved two resolutions on pension plans Thursday night, but the one for non-uniformed employees drew a long debate first before finally being okayed by a 7-1 vote. Councilman Robert McHale noted that the borough doesn’t yet have a ratified contract with the non-uniformed employees. Borough Manager Gene Zarayko argued that they can’t change the medical plan for them. Councilman Ed Pany joined McHale in questions for Zarayko, some of which didn’t satisfy them. It was Pany who made the “sacrificial no.” That resolution set the borough’s contribution rate of 9.58% or $113,512 to the nonuniformed pension plan, that came as the result of passing a

Jack Frost Parade Thursday, Oct. 18

medical plan at the last meeting in August. The resolution setting the contribution rate that the police department employees make to the police pension fund for fiscal year 2013 sailed throughout without argument, although Councilman Anthony Lopsonzski, a veteran of the police force for some 30 years, cited the piddling amount of social security he gets. He said the road crew is allowed social security, but the police are not and they fund their own 8% toward a pension, feeling they don’t balance out. Pristash Welcomed Anthony Pristash was welcomed by his new fellow members as he took his seat for the first time on Council. He replaced Sherry Neff-Maikits, who moved recently to Coplay

Borough. Pristash said he welcomes the opportunity to serve the borough in working with Council. He is also president of the Northampton Area Chamber of Commerce. Lopsonzski quipped that there are now three Anthonys on one side of the Council desk with him, his son, and Pristash. He also noted that Mrs. Maikits while on Council had lots of energy and many good ideas. With Mrs. Maikits off Council, there was a need to elect a vice president. McHale won that position on Thursday, edging fellow Councilman Robert Coleman, who later commented, with tongue in cheek, that he was “totally heartbroken” that he lost. Farmers Market Carol Simcoe brought with her a number of papers that

showed what a good time Northampton residents had when they celebrated their centennial in 2002. It was then that she told Council of pursuing a grant for a farmers market, something that consultant Victor Rodite brought to them last month.

News Sermonette Pastor Volker Stoeckmann Valleyview Baptist Church, Moore Twsp.

Forgiveness Through Christ I recently read the story of a Singaporean man named Jacob Koshy whose one driving ambition was to be a success in life by gaining all the money and possessions he could. That lead him into the world of drugs and gambling, and eventually he became the lord of an international smuggling network. Though he thought he was on his way to reaching his goal, his world came crashing down around him in 1980 as he was arrested and placed in a government drug rehabilitation prison in Singapore. Sitting in his prison cell, Jacob became frustrated beyond what he could endure. All his goals, dreams and ambitions were locked up with him in a tiny prison cell, and his heart was empty with no purpose in this life. He was a heavy smoker and cigarettes weren’t allowed in the rehabilitation center. Somehow he smuggled in tobacco and rolled it in the pages of a Bible. One day he fell asleep while smoking and when he awoke the cigarette had burned out leaving only a small scrap of charred paper. He unrolled it and his eyes fell on the only words that remained on the page of the Bible: “Saul, Saul why persecutest thou me?” Curious about the statement Jacob asked for another Bible and found the story of the conversion of Saul, who later is known as the Apostle Paul. He realized that if God could help a murderer like Saul, God could help him too. There in his prison cell he knelt and prayed asking God to forgive him of his sin and to change his life. Uncontrollably the tears of relief flowed from his eyes as he thought on his wasted life. He soon began to tell of his conversion to other prisoners and upon his release became a missionary telling the good news of transformation through Jesus Christ. Dear reader, Jacob Koshy’s story can be your story too. God in His love sent His Son Jesus Christ to the cross to die for your sin. He wants to forgive you and provide for you a whole new way of life if you will simply call upon Him. The devil is a thief who robs you of the true happiness found in Jesus. Consider the words of Jesus in John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Call upon Jesus Christ in prayer to enter the abundant life He has promised.

Northampton School District Makes AYP 2012, tests show By ALICE WANAMAKER The Home News

The Northampton School Board heard a presentation from Dr. Kathleen Ott at Monday night’s meeting on the AYP results for 2012. Northampton was one of 9 schools in the area that met the Adequate Yearly Progress standards of 78% proficient in Math and 81% proficient in reading. While overall, the district was able to meet the standards, three schools, including the High School, Middle School and George Wolf Elementary failed to meet standards this year. While the bar continues to rise each year, the data presented Monday night showed that the students and faculty at Northampton are up for the challenge. The AYP looks at attendance, graduation rates, performance and participation percentages, Northampton has a 91.9% graduation in 2012. The district also boasts a 96.8% attendance percentage. Following a detailed analysis of the scores, Dr. Ott, Dr. Kovalchick and Dr. Baird all sounded off about the results noting that the results are based on percentages that can be skewed by real numbers. They made a point to say that some of the schools which did not reach the standards this year are still very good public schools and that whole story needs to be told when looking at the percentages. While the district passed this year, administrators concur that each year is going to be a challenge. “We have some work to do, we always have some work to do” Dr. Ott said. She also noted that the district will use this year’s results and data to help guide the curriculum and decisions for the future. Supt. Kovalchick made his opinion clear to the audience that he disagrees with the PSSA testing in school, specifically how they do not allow for students with special needs to seek out acChurch in Berlinsville and was a member of the Lehigh Township Vol. Fire Co. Surviving are an aunt, Irene Marsh, of Georgia; an uncle, Ralph Marsh, of Mesquite, Texas; and cousins Marlene Anderson of Laury’s Station, Emily Filchner of Bath, and Darlene Waldrop, also of Bath. Services were held on Friday afternoon in the Schisler Funeral Home, Northampton, with Rev. Dr. Kenneth M. Shira officiating there and at interment in Danielsville Union Cemetery, Lehigh Township. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society or the American Heart Association, c/o the funeral home at 2119 Washington Ave., Northampton, PA 18067.

commodations for the tests. Judy Odenwelder added that she has seen students break down and cry over the stress and frustrations that the tests can cause. Dr. Baird posed a question to Dr. Ott regarding followup. He wondered if the state or federal government have taken any measures to follow up with the students who first were mandated to take AYP test and to check on their “success” in life versus those students who were not mandated the tests. Dr. Ott was not aware of any measures and agreed that the results would be interesting. Middle School Project The school board voted unanimously to pass PlanCon Parts D and C on Mon-

day night moving the middle school project forward. The two parts send “Project Accounting Based on Estimates” and “Design Development” to the PA Dept. of Education for approval. The project is inching closer to PlanCon Part G, which will award bids for the project in the coming months. Student Council Report Ben Longacre told the Board that Student Council is having their annual homecoming dance this Saturday and that there are two types of t-shirts available for purchase at the schools for $10. He also noted that the students are now viewing the Morning Mix, a school news channel that provides students the opportunity to work with intricate audio-visual equipment.

Farm Aid

H&R Block

Continued from page 1

Continued from page 9

Farm Aid is no longer a one-day event, but has evolved into a national organization that works to support farmers year round. “We’re not going anywhere. Someone has to stand up for small farmers. We are going to stay here and fight as long as we can stand, ” Farm Aid co-founder Neil Young said. This year’s Farm Aid concert and all day event had a “Homegrown Village” that featured, along with food vendors and Nazareth’s own Martin Guitars, activists spreading the word about family farming and environmental issues, many of which Northampton county farmers face daily. The main goal was getting people to recognize that you can get good, fresh food locally, directly from the farm to your table. Musician Grace Potter, called “the best female rock singer in the country” by USA Today, talked about how her band always tries to find farmer’s markets while on tour and the benefits of getting food from within your community. “We’re trying to raise general awareness of family farms producing food for us,” Ms. Potter said. “The farmer’s market isn’t always the most convenient option, but it’s the best option. You know what you’re getting and it just tastes better.” According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Pa. has over 63,000 farm families who oversee 7.7 million acres of land. Agriculture contributes nearly $57 billion into our economy annually, making it one of the leading economic drivers in the state. Locally, the Bath and Nazareth Farmers Market, as well as the many others throughout the region, work to get farm fresh food on your dinner table. Buying produce and other items from community markets stimulates the local economy and helps to support sustainable, family farming, rather than AgroBusiness giants like Cargill who are often under fire for environmental issues, food contamination and even human rights abuses. Many of the performers at Saturday’s concert spoke of the strong farming tradition in Pennsylvania and how important the good food movement is to the physical, economic, and even spiritual health of the country. Neil Young drew thunderous applause from the audience while giving an impassioned plea for the youth to get involved in farming. “Be a rebel,” he said, “become a farmer. It’s a mission from God. We need young blood on the farm.”

be completed annually. Among paid preparers not required to take the test are certified public accountants, attorneys and enrolled agents because they already meet or exceed the new requirements. “Even before the IRS made these paid preparer reforms, the average H&R Block client worked with a tax professional who had more than eight years experience and 450 hours of training on a variety of tax issues,” said Richard Cortright, Franchisee. “H&R Block is committed to making sure our nearly 90,000 tax professionals are up-to-date on the latest tax law changes and filing requirements.” The following tax professionals earned their RTRP certificate: Richard Cortright with 13 years of tax preparation experience Joseph Cortright with 13 years of tax preparation experience These H&R Block professionals relied on industry-leading training materials, including the “Wiley Registered Tax Return Preparer Exam Review 2012” written by The Tax Institute at H&R Block. Complete with extensive examples and review questions, the publication provides a solid foundation on individual income taxes and the preparation of an accurate and complete individual income tax return.

Her Turn Now

A man stalled his car half on and half off the railroad track just as a train came around the bend. Turning to his screaming spouse, he snapped, “You’ve been driving all day from the back seat. My end’s across--see what you can do with your end.”
