Bernanke’s advice

In a recent much anticipated speech, in Wyoming, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, in effect, laid the responsibility, and blame, on the federal government for current doubt and pessimism about the U.S. economy. The key warning in his speech was contained in this sentence: “The quality of economic policy making in the United States will heavily influence the nation’s long-term prospects.” Policy making is the responsibility of the federal government. The FED chairman cannot make new policy. Bernanke was clear: “the country would be well served by a better process of making fiscal decisions.” That is also a reminder to the White House and Congress they are responsible for economic action that builds confidence in the nation’s economic future. One hopes both branches act on Bernanke’s advice.

It was rainy for the second to last Friday of the Bath farmers’ market. If this is the last week, let’s hope it’s clear as it closes down for the season. The folks who organize it and all the vendors who take part in it with their tents and produce, whatever they’re selling, all deserve a great big pat on the back. So see you all on Friday, and looking forward to another great season in 2012 – with less rain! . . . .Coming up next weekend is another big farming event, when Northampton County has its annual tour. Ye Ed says he has a big list of places to visit on Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th, so get the family car ready for some touring. Graver Farms Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze, which was run in Moore Township the past five years won’t be open this season. But Christime says they enjoyed sharing their farm with folks during the fall season over those years. . . .Took notice all the corn fields are turning tan now, so that means the fall harvest of field corn should be going into full swing right soon. Seiple Farms will be having their open house, too, no doubt, and that usually means a lot of pumpkin picking. Let’s hope all that rain we’ve had this summer didn’t hurt the punkins with fungus among us. . . . Bath Community Day is this Saturday down at Ciff Cowling Field. There’s always lots of good vendors with things to look at and buy, great food stands, and from what I read in the paper, there will be extra things to do and see this year. . . . Phillies fans have been biting their nails down to the bone here of late as their favorites lost eight games in a row, and now they’re in Atlanta facing the

Braves. Reckon they’re between a rock and a hard place, wanting to win, but afraid of those Cardinals doing ‘em in like they did a few years back. All we can do is hope for the best. . . .As for those Eagles, I’m afraid they’re gonna have a long, losing season, and not be all they hoped for. Seems to me one of the city papers around here favors the New York teams more than those in our own state, the way they play ‘em up all the time. . . . Former Star Grange hall is taking shape as a real nice apartment building from the looks of it outside. . . . I like the siding jobs down on South Walnut and over on Chestnut Street, too. . . . But while the borough is fixing up Main Street with trees, lanterns and brick work, South Chestnut Street shoulda been one of their first projects to work on. . . . Have a great weekend, and put on your walking shoes for Community Day. It should be a good time for all.

The club has also sponsored Boy Scout Troop 33 in Bath for most of those 80-plus years. On Tuesday night, two members of the club delivered a check for $500 to the Center for Vision Loss “needs night” held at the Northampton Community Center. Tonight, the club will have several members at a District 14-K rally in Northampton. Mauser Speaking On Wednesday, Oct. 5, John Mauser, a former Northampton Middle School teacher, and now project manager for the Martins-Jacoby Watershed Association in Lower Mt.

Nation’s pharmacists ready to Administer seasonal flu vaccines The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is encouraging consumers to get immunized against influenza and to speak with their pharmacist about the options available at their local pharmacy. Pharmacists are authorized to give flu vaccinations in all 50 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico, and more than 150,000 U.S. pharmacists have been trained in the practice of immunization administration. The CDC estimates that approximately 20% of the seasonal flu vaccinations given to adults during the 20102011 season were administered by pharmacists. “APhA encourages consumers to be proactive and talk to their pharmacist about their vaccination needs and the immunization process at the pharmacy,” said APhA CEO and Executive Vice President Thomas Menighan. “A pharmacist goes through six years or more of school, depending on his/her area of specialization. In addition to their specialized training as medication experts, pharmacists can go through a formal training program to gain the skill set and knowledge to administer immunizations. This formal training helps ensure reliable and consistent immunization care for patients. “ According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 5 to 20 percent of the US population is infected with influenza every year, and over the

past 31 years, annual influenza related deaths have ranged from 3,000 to 49,000. Consistent with the recommendations by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), APhA recommends that all persons six months of age and older be vaccinated each year. “The local pharmacy is a convenient and easily accessible place to get your flu shot,” stated Vincent Hartzell, Owner and Director of Patient Care Services, Hartzell's Pharmacy. “Your pharmacist is readily available to discuss vaccines and how they can help keep your family healthy. Many pharmacies have yearround walk-in hours and immunization clinics during the peak season. In most cases, a patient can get vaccinated in the time it takes to wait for their prescriptions.” The flu vaccine administered in the local pharmacy is supplied by the same major manufacturers who supply the vaccines to doctors and other healthcare providers. The 2011-2012 vaccine is now available and health care providers should begin vaccinating patients as soon as they receive their supply. Consumers are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated early in the season, but immunizations can be received as long as vaccine supply is available. There are several methods of flu vaccination available, depending upon the patient’s age and health conditions.

WOMEN/SOCIAL Make sure to ask your pharmacist or other health care provider about which is right for you. In many states, pharmacists are able to administer other important immunizations. Check with your local pharmacist to determine which vaccines they administer. Immunizations may include: • Pneumococcal (Pneumonia) • Meningococcal (Meningitis) • Hepatitis B • Human papillomavirus (HPV) • Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) • Zoster (Shingles) Consumers should hold a conversation with their pharmacist and their other healthcare providers about their vaccination needs. Pharmacists work in conjunction with doctors and other health care providers to optimize care, improve medication use and to prevent disease. APhA encourages consumers to fill all their prescriptions with one pharmacy to get to know their pharmacist on a first name basis, to carry an up-date medication and vaccination list and to share all medical information with each of their health care providers.

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

Why Chiropractic? Why Now?

Invariably, I find that many of our patients suffer for quite some time before they seek care. The range is a few weeks, to months, and yes, even years. This astounds me as you would think that the majority of people we help would be for sudden or acute conditions. I do see however, that there is a distinct difference between females and males and generally, the ladies seek care sooner yet that isn’t always the case. Over the past year or so I have been taking the time to inquire why. I will generally ask them something like, “Why are you here in my office today of all days if you have been hurting for the past three months?” I might even press them further and ask, “Why did you choose our office over prescription medicine or physical therapy? Why chiropractic and why now?” The vast majority typically respond that their wife, mother, friend, co-worker referred them to our office because we take care of them, but that’s not the point of the question. I really desire to understand why they waited

to seek help. Why didn’t they seek care sooner, if they are hurting and cannot, let’s say, lift their children, drive to church, had to give up their favorite hobby, or need to sleep on the recliner? Understand that no two answers are identical as of course all situations are different. However, perhaps the most common theme is patients perceive that the condition that afflicted them would go away on its own. Taken at face value, some do, I believe we can agree on that. Or at least they “go dormant”, if I can use that terminology, perhaps only to rise up at a later time, maybe months or years, with greater severity and associate degenerative changes, and perhaps a permanency that goes beyond what chiropractic can help. It may be the case that you can identify yourself with one who waits until a situation gets dramatically advanced or debilitating before you take action. Maybe you travel extensively and cannot afford the time. Please know that the real issue isn’t the time, insurance coverage, or anything else, the real issue

Business revitalization Nationally accredited

Lehigh Valley’s Borough Business Revitalization Program (BBRP) has been designated as an accredited National Main Street Program for the second year in a row - for meeting the commercial district revitalization performance standards set by the National Trust Main Street Center. Once a year, the National Trust and its partners announce the list of accredited Main Street programs that have built strong revitalization organizations and demonstrate their ability in using the Main Street FourPoint Approach methodology for strengthening their local economy and protecting their historic buildings. "We congratulate this year's nationally accredited Main

Street program for meeting our established performance standards," says Doug Loescher, director of the National Trust Main Street Center. "Accredited Main Street programs are meeting the challenges of the recession head on and are successfully using a focused, comprehensive revitalization strategy to keep their communities vibrant and sustainable." The organization's performance is evaluated annually by the Pennsylvania Downtown Center, which works in partnership with the National Trust Main Street Center to identify the local programs that meet 10 performance standards.

at hand is whether you value your health now AND in the years to come. I ascribe to the feeling well now and for as long as I am able category! This past week I saw an interview with an eighty-two year old triathlon competitor. I find it amazing that this individual has spent twenty consecutive years competing in grueling races that includes swimming, biking over one hundred miles and running over twenty six miles to the finish line. This man stated that the reason he can do such amazing feats of endurance at eighty-two is because he took care of himself in his forties. This truly struck home for me as I currently find myself in my fourth decade of life. Here is my take away from all discussed to this point: Take care of yourself. Yes, I love chiropractic and the amazing benefits it affords for your body. Chiropractic helps get you well, keep you well and living the life you were meant to have. Yet simply put, I would rather have you do something rather than nothing. Seek an opinion of a healthcare professional early on. Why would you sit idle, with pain and dysfunction and watch a small problem turn into a monster of a health concern? “Natural Perspectives” is a health commentary only and does not claim to diagnose and/ or make treatment recommendations.

Suicide Prevention Walk in Allentown

The Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will hold its annual Out of the Darkness Walk on Sunday, Oct. 9 in Lehigh Parkway in Allentown. Registration will begin at 11 a.m. A special program will be held at noon, including entertainment by the Dream Kids, followed by the 3.1-mile walk around the Lehigh Parkway. Following the walk, lunch will be provided courtesy of Royal Catering. This year, Miss Pennsylvania 2011, Juliann Sheldon, will be attending the walk in Lehigh Parkway. Her personal platform is mental health awareness. AFSP organizes the Out of the Darkness Walks throughout the country. Participants in the Lehigh Valley walk will be joining thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s research and education programs to prevent suicide, increase national awareness


about depression and suicide, and assist survivors of suicide loss. In 2010, about 450 walkers participated in the Lehigh Parkway in memory of friends and loved ones, and raised about $30,000 for research and awareness. Many of the Out of the Darkness Walk participants walk in memory of a loved one lost to suicide. The walk is an opportunity for survivors of suicide loss to connect with each other and get involved in a wide variety of educational and fundraising programs. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for nearly 100 deaths per day.

BATH AREA BATH BORO – EAST ALLEN TWSP. –  MOORE TWSP. –  CHAPMAN BORO Jarinko seeking independent Seat as Moore Tp. Supervisor

Moore Township resident Rodney Jarinko, who was honored for his 30 years of service as a township Supervisor by both the Pa. State Senate and House of Representatives, has come out of his 2010 retirement and will be on the ballot in November for another term as Supervisor as an independent candidate. His reasoning: Jarinko believes the present board is ”Spending more money than they take in” and “Somebody’s got to pay for it.” He feels with the township’s present financial picture that a sizeable real estate tax is on the near horizon. The citations he received from the state bodies acknowledge both his years

on the supervisors board as well as six prior years on the township planning commission. On the supervisors he was both a chairman and secretary-treasurer over three decades. The citation, in part, said that Jarinko “demonstrated remarkable knowledge, ability and integrity in carrying out his many responsibilities, thus earning the respect and gratitude of all whose who received the benefit of his tireless devotion to duty.” Normally, as a township supervisor, the members also are paid as part of the road crew. Jarinko says that, if elected, he will serve with no pay and no benefits. “I have the passion, and am really concerned with the township finances,” he said recently.

He said in today’s economy, revenue is not as good as expected, but the present board, in his opinion,“Doesn’t worry how they will pay for it,” adding that the township may have to borrow money, for the reserve that they had has been eaten up. He also cited a project on Cigar Road that came in at less than expected, but the board had taken out a mortgage for a larger amount and realized a savings, but spent what was left. “I don’t care if it’s me, you, or anybody else, you can’t spend what you don’t take in,” Jarinko said, “adding, “I’m concerned that they don’t have a larger real estate tax. Money is a real area of stress.” He said the township can live on its revenues, “but they need to look at things and do it more wisely.” Jarinko said that in his opinion, both of his opponents (who made the ballot in the spring primary) are running for jobs as working supervisors. If the [U.S.] census had shown a population of 10,000 or more it could have gone to a first class township with a commission form of government, he said, but since it is lower there are supervisors who double as roadmasters. “He concluded, “I’ve volunteered my services. I have the time, and at no pay or benefits.” He thinks the township’s finances are salvageable, but “it’s running tight. . .without being on the payroll would cut one supervisor,” he said. ”I stressed to the board that they should be working for the people.” Jarinko believes he has name recognition, but admits that he doesn’t know how the vote will be split with three candidates for one seat. “I wanted to be independent for 18 years,” he said, and has now done it rather than running as a Democrat as before. “I think people vote more for the person than the party.”.

NORTHAMPTON AREA NORTHAMPTON BORO –  ALLEN TWSP. – LEHIGH TWSP. Council okays manhole Rehabilitation project bid


Northampton Borough Council, at its Sept. 15 meeting, approved the bids of Swerp, Inc. for the borough’s manhole rehabilitation project. The company’s price for 10 manholes, with cured in place lining, was $32,930. Borough Manager Gene Zarayko said that, in addition, there is a linear foot price of $160.20. With manholes nine feet deep, the price is $37,736. Having a county grant covering the costs, Zarayko said the total price bid gives the borough the ability to do an additional seven manholes. • Councilman Joseph Leitgeb reported that the public works department will be constructing a storm drain manhole at 1402 Laubach Ave, and after that is done they will try to schedule the reconstruction of the Canal/ Stewart St. manhole and the

Howertown Rd. manhole. • Council also approved resolutions granting permission to set the borough’s contribution to both the nonuniformed pension plan and the police pension fund. Committee Reports Under building, land and recreation, it was noted that the recreation center will have the annual 5K race this Saturday, Oct. 1, with registration starting at 8 a.m. and the race going at 9:30 a.m. The center’s director, Robert Weinhofer, said they are also getting ready for the annual cheerleading competition at the high school on Nov. 6.

Spare change at Shafer School Adds up to cancer research Students throughout eastern Pennsylvania put in much more than their two cents this year to raise money for Pasta for Pennies presented by Olive Garden and benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). In fact, more than 95,000 students at 175 elementary, middle and high schools in eastern Pennsylvania collectively raised $306,000 to support blood cancer research.

Thanks to their successful efforts, combined with the efforts of students nationwide, the funds raised for LLS through Pasta for Pennies over the past 17 years now total more than $61 million. Students in the Shafer Elementary School at Nazareth School District took part in the fundraising for the fourth year during February of 2011. The school, with nearly 600 stu-

dents in kindergarten through third grades raised $6,048 during the four week fundraising time period. The top fundraising class, Ms. Janice Bajan’s first grade class, received a pasta party from their local Olive Garden restaurant for raising $691.68. Every penny, nickel, dime and quarter raised helps fund blood cancer research and provides much needed services and support to leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma patients and their loved ones. Shafer has participated in the program for four years. School nurse and program advisor for Shafer, Ms. Mary Horton, said the school chooses to participate in this fundraiser because they have lost both students and faculty to Leukemia, “This is a fundraiser that is close to our hearts and is a part of the Shafer community” she said during a phone interview. “This year’s Pasta for Pennies success is proof that anyone, no matter their age, can become involved and make a difference in the lives of others,” said John Caron, president of Olive Garden. “All of us at Olive Garden commend the many students, parents, teachers and administrators who came together for this program and turned pocket change into millions of dollars for cancer research.” The top fundraising schools in eastern Pennsylvania include:


Edgewood Elementary School in Yardley with $10,970.42 collected; Twin Valley Middle School in Elverson with $6,950, and Floyd R. Shafer Elementary School in Nazareth with $6,048.34. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancers. The LLS mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and

improve the quality of life for patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

One day, seated at a restaurant – awaiting some friends – I became conscious of the decorations hung around the room. One in particular caught my attention – a cornucopia overflowing with fruits of the harvest. It was appropriate, being we were in the early days of November. As I looked at the wall hanging I was suddenly struck by the whole thing being made of plastic. Sure, it was realistic in appearance – the cornucopia looking woven; the fruit fresh and enticing. But it was all an illusion. This memory came to the surface as I contemplated writing this piece and looked (googled) the date. Today, the 29th, on the Jewish calendar is Rosh Hashanah – the first day of the Jewish year 5772. This day marks a period of ten days leading up to Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. During this time Jews are to look back at the previous year and their mistakes and failings – laying them before God; so they can be refreshed for the new year. I know I’m probably not doing just to the whole meaning of Rosh Hashanah…but let me get to my point. When do we, as Christians, take time to look, with all honesty, at our mistakes and failings – so as to learn from them, be forgiven and renewed? Sure, some make regular confession of sins – but, is it just a ritual to go through? Or are we more likely to look at our past and point out where we were deceived by others, led astray by shady people other than ourselves – or “the devil made me do it,” to quote Flip Wilson. Are our confessions as edifying as a cornucopia of plastic fruit is for some one who is starving? Many people around the world and right here at home, are starving – physically, mentally, and spiritually. There are many who would address those needs by offering “plastic fruit” – deceptively “easy”“quick fixes” that never call into question an individual’s own accountability. “Self-help” is truly no help. We need to seek the “food that satisfies” – the Word of God which calls us to not deny our humanness – but rather to embrace it as Christ embraced his humanity. Only in our full humanity – with all its flaws and failings – can we know our need of God’s divine forgiveness, grace, and mercy. Only then can we turn and be a source of true sustenance to our hungry and needy neighbors. Be wary of “cornucopias of plastic fruit” that look good and even inviting, but are only good for seasonal decoration and not for life that is life. Amen.

PGC offers advice On avoiding bear Conflicts

With summer days gone by, many Pennsylvanians may have forgotten about problems caused by black bears in the spring, when nuisance bear activity typically peaks. However, black bear activity also tends to increase during the fall, and Pennsylvania Game Commission officials remind homeowners that steps taken now can minimize problems with bears during the next few weeks and months. 
Mark Ternent, Game Commission black bear biologist, noted that, as fall progresses, bears will begin to increase their food intake to prepare for the upcoming denning season, which begins in mid- to late-November. For some bears, the search for food may lead them closer to people or homes. 
Ternent listed some recommendations to reduce the chances of having a close encounter with a black bear on a homeowner’s property: 
Play it smart. Do not feed wildlife. Food placed outside for wildlife, such as corn for squirrels or deer, may attract bears. Reconsider putting squash, pumpkins, corn stalks or other Halloween or holiday decorations outside that also may attract bears. Even bird feeders can become “bear magnets.” Tips for how to safely feed birds for those in prime bear areas include: restrict feeding season to when bears hibernate, which is primarily from late November through late March; avoid foods that are particularly attractive for bears, such as sunflower seeds, hummingbird nectar mixes or suet; bring feeders inside at night or suspend them from high crosswires; and temporarily remove feeders for two weeks if visited by a bear. Encourage your neighbors to do the same. 
Keep it clean. Don’t place garbage outside until pick-up day; don’t throw table scraps out back for animals to eat; don't add fruit or vegetable wastes to your compost pile; and clean your barbecue grill regularly. If you feed pets outdoors, consider placing food dishes inside overnight. 
Keep your distance. If a bear shows up in your backyard, stay calm. From a safe distance, shout at it like you would to chase an unwanted dog. If the bear won't leave, slowly retreat and call the nearest Game Commission regional office or local police department for assistance. Children should understand not to run, approach or hide from a bear that wanders into the yard, but, instead, to walk slowly back to the house. 
Eliminate temptation. Bears that visit your area are often drawn there. Neighbors need to work together to reduce an area's appeal to bears. Ask area businesses to keep dumpsters closed and bear-proofed (chained or locked shut). 
Check please! If your dog is barking, or cat is clawing at the door to get in, try to determine what has alarmed your pet. But do it cautiously, using outside lights to full advantage and from a safe position, such as a porch or an upstairs window. All unrecognizable outside noises and disturbances should be checked, but don't do it on foot with a flashlight. Black bears blend in too well with nighttime surroundings providing the chance for a close encounter. If bears have been sighted near your home, it is a good practice to turn on a light and check the backyard be-

regarding an inter-municipal agreement that would have traffic enforcement on Township Line Rd. by Upper Nazareth police. • The board approved a mutual aid agreement for emergency services between East Allen and the emergency services units of Allen, Moore, Lehigh, Upper and Lower Nazareth townships, and Hanover Township in Northampton and Lehigh counties, and the Boroughs of Bath, Northampton and North Catasauqua. • Township Manager Deborah Seiple said that PennDOT demanded a meeting regarding Rt. 512 improvements, in which the highway will be widened for a stretch in the area of heavy truck traffic from new warehouses and terminals. Utility poles have already been moved. It is believed it will take 60 to 90 days for the rough paving for the road widening to be completed, township engineer Jim Birdsall said. • Revising a decision made earlier regarding collection of delinquent earned income taxes, Mrs. Seiple said the Northampton Area School District will continue collecting real estate taxes, but the Keystone firm hired by Northampton County to collect all municipal earned income taxes will also collect the delinquent money, effective January 1, 2012. Mrs. Seiple said $29,000 of township EIT money has gone to Bethlehem because of East Allen addresses that are listed as Bethlehem. • Asking for direction in regard to checks that are re-

ceived with insufficient funds, township treasurer Rose Wedde was advised that the present policy will not change. There is a fee of $30 charged, plus the check amount in a money order. If not paid, the issue goes to the district attorney. Other Matters • A letter of credit extension for Arcadia expires Oct. 15 and the solicitor will take action if not extended. • An ordinance to adopt and ratify an agreement for intergovernmental cooperation will be advertised. • Budget letters have been sent out to all departments as the supervisors prepare to act on a budget for 2012. • Mrs. Seiple, John McDevitt of the fire department, and solicitor Leeson discussed the burning ordinance. A permit for open burning is required, and when there are violations, one warning may be given, but after that the case is brought to a magistrate, who would set a fine. However, in some cases the fine doesn’t cover expenses incurred by the township. • Chuck Frantz gave the recreation report. He noted that rains have been plaguing scheduled soccer games; a Civil War re-enactment was cancelled because of it, and may be re-set for early spring. He also noted cross-country meets held at Bicentennial Park. The park will close after November 1 for any special events. • A zoning hearing appeal brought by several local residents regarding a zone change approved by the supervisors on land that the school district wants to build a new middle school has been continued again to Oct. 18.

“Bears should not be feared, nor should they be dismissed as harmless, but they do need to be respected,”Ternent said. He also advised: Get Back. If you have surprised a bear, slowly back away while quietly talking. Face the bear, but avoid direct eye contact. Do not turn and run; rapid movement may be perceived as danger to a bear that is already feeling threatened. Avoid blocking the bear’s only escape route and try to move away from any cubs you see or hear. Do not attempt to climb a tree. A female bear can falsely interpret this as an attempt to get at her cubs, even though the cubs may be in a different tree. 
Pay Attention. If a bear is dis-

playing signs of nervousness or discomfort with your presence, such as pacing, swinging its head, or popping its jaws, leave the area. Some bears may bluff charge to within a few feet. If this occurs, stand your ground, wave your arms wildly, and shout at the bear. Turning and running could elicit a chase and you cannot outrun a bear. Bears that appear to be stalking should be confronted and made aware of your willingness to defend by waving your arms and yelling while you continue to back away. 
Fight Back. If a bear attacks, fight back as you continue to leave the area. Bears have been driven away with rocks, sticks, binoculars, car keys, or even bare hands.

“Ideally, we want bears to pass by residential areas without finding a food reward that would cause them to return and become a problem,” Ternent said. “Capturing and moving bears that have become habituated to humans is costly and sometimes ineffective because they can return or continue the same unwanted behavior where released. That is why wildlife agencies tell people that a ‘fed bear is a dead bear.’”
