An electronic scoreboard purchased by the Bath Fire Co. Social Hall was dedicated on Saturday morning, prior to the opening of their 2013 season by the Bath Lions Football teams. Fire Co. Social Hall president Jim Pasquariello and members of the social hall stood on the 50-yard line for the dedication. The weather was perfect – a cool breeze and wall-to-wall sunshine, not a cloud in the sky. The Lions’ football announcer expressed the thanks
of the teams for the gift of the scoreboard, noting the problems they had with the previous scoreboard. The new one is fastened to the equipment building on the west side of Ciff Cowling Field, and shows the time remaining in the quarters of play and the score for each team as the games are played. Pasquariello said the top part of the scoreboard was heavy to lift in place, but the social hall was happy to give it for the young football players and cheerleaders.Included on the board is the message, “Go Lions!” We echo that sentiment.

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip Well, the kids are back at their desks in school. They’ll have a couple days off before the Labor Day holiday on Monday, but they went back this Monday. The Catholic school kids went back even earlier. So all those yellow school buses at Beersville are rolling again. Study hard, kids!!! . . . . Summer humidity returned on Monday, too, but I hope it doesn’t last too long. We got used to cooler, humidity-free weather, and it sure was nice. . . .Kevin Reichel from Reichel Funeral Home over in Northampton went along with the IronPigs promotion and will provide up to a $10,000 funeral for a fan who won an essay. From a Wall Street Journal report I read, there were dozens of funeral directors that turned down the promotion, and even Kevin did, until he changed his mind. A man who has Lou Gehrig’s disease won the funeral when he passes away. What’s next? Even though they’re not going anywhere, the Phillies fans are getting some good
vibes these days as the younger guys who came out of Triple A Lehigh Valley are helping win a lotta games for their new interim skipper. Might be promising for next season. . . .I hear there’s gonna be another 100th birthday party next week down at Alexandria Manor. . . . Wonder who had the birthday in the T&C kitchen the other day? The waitresses and cooks could be heard singing “Happy Birthday to You” to somebody inside . . . .It was nice to see those Bath Lions youth football players out on the field on Saturday, and a terrific crowd on the sidelines to cheer ‘em on, too. . . . Glad to see that Chick Liberto is getting around again after shingles got into his eye and he had a tumble. . . . Didn’t get over to the airport, but that musta been a really great air show with the jets and biplanes and all they had on display and flying hither and yon . . . . Oh, the wonder of modern day technology. Alice Wanamaker’s out in Colorado and writing stories about Manny and Fi and their restaurant

Cub Pack 43 goes to camp, Have fun and earn awards Cub Scout Pack 43, sponsored by Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Bath, recently spent a week at Akelaland, at Camp Trexler in Jonas Pa. The boys spent all week sleeping in tents, and having a great time and learning all types of Cub Scouting skills. For two of the boys it was their first time at camp, and for the other three “veteran” campers, they all had a great time as they spent the week going through their daily activities. Each day started with opening colors at the dining hall; afterwards all the kids would participate in morning
exercises which were dictated by the throwing of fuzzy dice. Once everyone was wide awake and stretched, the boys would all call for the dining hall director “Ron, Ron, Ron” ….who would then egg the boys on as they chanted “hat, hat, hat”… and would then throw his hat to the loudest group of scouts for the morning. After breakfast, the boys hit the beat with their schedules for the day. Each day the boys would have time at the pool, BB and archery ranges, outdoor skills section and Continued on page 19

Grow Ur Biz - Grow UP
By CAROL RITTER
What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you want to be a teacher, a chef, an astronaut, or maybe you wanted to be a movie star? I wonder if you are what you dreamed of being when you grew up. I’m not. I never thought about being a motivational speaker or an executive coach. I worked for a speaker and I remember being in the audience and thinking to myself, “I could do that” and the rest is history. I follow Seth Godin, author of the Purple Cow and marketing expert. He says, “No kid sets out to make Doritos commercials. No one grows up saying, ‘I want to go into marketing.’ More than ever, though, folks grow up saying, ‘I want to change the world.’ More than ever, that means telling stories, changing minds and building a tribe. You know, it’s marketing.” Building your tribe is the most important piece of marketing your biz. I tell my clients all the time, gathering a crowd will be the hardest piece of running a successful event or building your tribe of customers for your biz. It’s easy to make a magnificent cake, it’s another thing to teach customers to love it, buy it and, most importantly, talk about it. This new generation of business owners just might be dreaming about changing the world but without the ability to tell your story and build a tribe nothing will change. Did you know.... Growing Tribe is key. How
do u do it? I will give you ideas in my next article, THE TRIBE. Reinvention is exponential - the time to reinvent is when you are growing. “You’re either growin’ or your dyin’, CEO of Roto Rooter Today’s version of cold calling is LinkedIn, bet you didn’t dream about that. Remember the movie Peter Pan? He sang the song, I Won’t Grow Up..... sing along, ‘I’ll never grow up, I’ll never grow up, I don’t wanna to be a man, I don’t wanna be a man, I’ll never grow up, never grow up, not me.” Sing louder! This song is upbeat, fun and appealing to the masses, just like your biz should be, you may have grown up but there’s still time for dreamin. DREAM BIG - DREAM OFTEN AND NEVER GROW UP.

Reporting child abuse: Whose job is it?
As children come back to school, the question of who’s responsible for being on the lookout for child abuse often comes up. Angela Liddle, executive director of the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance (PFSA), says that while

SIGN along Newburg Rd. at Werner Rd. shows the new weight limits placed by PennDOT.
Thirty-eight bridges in Northampton and Lehigh counties have had weight restrictions placed on them by PennDOT. Altogether, there are more than 1,000 across the state with new weight limits that were effective this past Thursday. The limits are from 6,000 pounds to 80,000 – mostly affecting tractor-trailers, school buses and fire engines. These are the 13 local bridges affected, as PennDOT hopes to slow down bridge deterioration and preserve safety for motorists until finally the Legislature provides enough funding to repair or replace them: ALLEN TOWNSHIP – Howertown Rd. over a dry run; Stonebridge Rd. over Hokendauqua Creek and Val-

He was gracious enough to allow residents and employees to pedal the bike and is delighted to have broken the world record for the oldest individual to sit on the bike. Twin sisters in Ohio, who were 97 at the time, formerly held the record. It is now held by Fink, who at age 100 not only sat on it, but also pedaled it around the parking lot with his friends. “It was a tremendously fun day,” said Rosalind Haglund, executive director. “Allen not only set the world record, but was the inspiration that motivated 30 other residents to take a ride on the conference bike. It was a truly unique opportunity for all.” Fink turned 100 years old on July 3. He currently lives at

Mr. Darin Rehrig was reared in Walnutport, graduating from Northampton High School in 1991. He started his cement career at the LaFarge Corporation in 1997. Both of Darin’s uncles were employed in the industry. He recalls, “I started on the tire deck, feeding tons of tires into the kilns. They are a safe alternative fuel. Later, I transferred to the packhouse and worked as both a packer and forklift operator under a fine supervisor, Mr. Bob Meckes.” Today, Darin is a bulk cement loader. He received excellent training from old timers Ron Leindecker, James Schneck and Jerome Nederostek. The bulk loader is responsible for filling tank trucks with nine different types of cement. The most requested is Max-Cem Cement. Orders are delivered in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia and other areas. The loading of the trucks is amazing when one looks at the intense labor of the past. Trucks can be loaded safely with no spillage in less than two minutes. The “magic powder” is delivered to numerous construction projects in the east from highway to building construction. LaFarge is happy to see its quality cement utilized in many projects which are benefitting America. Darin said,“The landing operation covers two shifts: 12:00 midnight to 5:00 p.m. I work closely with Mike Humanick, Robby Taniser and supervisor Barry Schlosser, all fine men. I enjoy working with them and the dozens of truckers who haul from our plant. It is important to develop a cooperative relationship with them. The truckers are vital to our successful operation.” Mr. Rehrig is also the presi-

dent of the unionized employees at the plant, which, along with Keystone Cement, are represented by the United Steel Workers Union. He serves with Committeemen Bob Nikisher and Paul Gergel. Darin has a fantastic musical background. His father leads a popular group that has entertained many of my readers: “Dave Rehrig and Twitty Fever.” He with his brother are excellent sound and light technicians working with many groups from “Get the Led Out” to a recent appearance of the “Beach Boys.” Darin’s vacations and spare time have been a musical adventure. Mr. Rehrig is amiable and personable, molded by his many relationships both at the plant and on the road. He has been married for 18 years to the former Michelle Traugher, a former student of this writer at Northampton High School. They reside in Orefield and are proud of daughters Brianna and McKenzie. I wish Mr. Rehrig and all my friends at LaFarge continued health and success at the century-old cement plant
and hope to return again next year to honor more dedicated cement workers.

CWD Impacts Pennsylvanians Who Hunt Out-Of-State
The thousands of Pennsylvania hunters who soon will be heading off to hunt big game in other states can do their share to slow the spread of chronic wasting disease in the Commonwealth. Those who hunt out-ofstate are reminded that Pennsylvania prohibits importing specific carcass parts from members of the deer family – including mule deer, elk and moose – from 21 states and two Canadian provinces. The parts ban affects hunters who harvest deer, elk or
moose in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland (only from CWD Management Area), Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York (only from Madison and Oneida counties), North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia (only from CWD Containment Area), West Virginia (only from CWD Containment Area, which includes parts of three counties), Wisconsin and Wyoming; as well as the Canadian provinces of

Alberta and Saskatchewan. Pennsylvania hunters harvesting any deer, elk or moose in those areas, whether the animal was taken from the wild or from a captive, high-fence operation, must comply with rules aimed at slowing the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Pennsylvania. CWD was detected in Pennsylvania for the first time last year, and those hunting out-of-state must leave behind the carcass parts that have the highest risk for transmitting the disease. Those parts are: the head (including brain, tonsils, eyes and any lymph nodes); spinal cord/backbone; spleen; skull plate with attached antlers, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; cape, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if root structure or other soft tissue is present; any object or article containing visible brain or spinal cord tissue; unfinished taxidermy mounts; and brain-tanned hides. “This is the first time that we’ve entered the fall hunting seasons knowing that we have chronic wasting disease inside Pennsylvania,” Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe said. “But that doesn’t mean we’ve given up the fight to slow the disease’s spread or make its impacts on our deer herd as minimal as possible. “High-risk parts are classified as such for a reason,” he said. “And while we wish Pennsylvanians luck in all of their out-of-state hunts, we also ask them to make sure they’re following the rules and bringing back home with them only the parts they’re allowed.” Hunters who are successful in those areas from which the importation of high-risk parts into Pennsylvania is banned are al-
lowed to import meat from any deer, elk, moose, mule deer or caribou, so long as the backbone is not present. Successful hunters also are allowed to bring back cleaned skull plates with attached antlers, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; tanned hide or raw hide with no visible brain or spinal cord tissue present; capes, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if no root structure or other soft tissue is present; and finished taxidermy mounts. Roe urged hunters heading to a state with a history of CWD to become familiar with that state’s wildlife regulations and guidelines for the transportation of harvested game animals. Pennsylvania detected its first case of chronic wasting disease last year in a captive deer kept at an Adams County facility, and another deer that had lived in the same pen later tested positive for the disease. Since that time, the disease was detected in three free-ranging deer harvested by hunters in Bedford and Blair counties during the 2012 firearms deer season. In response to those cases, the Game Commission has outlined two Disease Management Areas (DMAs) totaling about 1,500 square miles, and special rules regarding deer hunting, the feeding of wildlife and the transport of high-risk deer parts apply within those areas. Maps of the DMAs are available at the Game Commission’s website and are shown on pages 53 and 54 of the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest, which is presented to each Pennsylvania license buyer. The exact rules deer hunters within those areas will need to follow are being finalized and will be announced soon by the Game Commission.
However, those who live in a DMA and are successful in out-of-state hunts should know that – like other Pennsylvanians hunting out-ofstate – they are permitted to bring low-risk deer parts back home with them. Roe said hunters who harvest a deer, elk or moose in a state or province where CWD is known to exist should follow instructions from that state’s wildlife agency on how and where to submit the appropriate samples to have their animal tested. If, after returning to Pennsylvania, a hunter is notified that his or her game tested positive for CWD, the hunter is encouraged to immediately contact the Game Commission region office that serves the county in which they reside for disposal recommendations and assistance. A list of region offices and contact information appears on page 5 of the Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest. The contact information also is available on the agency’s website (www.pgc.state. pa.us) by putting your cursor on “About Us” in the menu bar under the banner, then selecting “Regional Information” in the drop-down menu and then clicking on the region of choice in the map. First identified in 1967, CWD is a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) that affects cervids, including all species of deer, elk and moose. It is a progressive and always fatal disease of the nervous system. Scientists believe CWD is caused by an unknown agent capable of transforming normal brain proteins into an abnormal form. There currently is no practical way to test live animals for CWD, nor is there a vaccine. Clinical signs include poor posture, lowered head and ears, uncoordinated movement, rough-hair coat, weight loss, increased thirst, excessive drooling, and, ultimately, death. There is currently no scientific evidence that CWD has or can spread to humans, either through contact with infected animals or by eating meat of infected animals. As a precaution, however, humans are advised not to eat the meat of any animal testing positive for the disease. Much more information on CWD, as well as a video showing hunters how they can process venison for transport and consumption, is available at the Game Commission’s websit CWD precautions Wildlife officials have suggested hunters in areas where chronic wasting disease (CWD) is known to exist follow these usual recommendations to prevent the possible spread of disease: •Do not shoot, handle or

Minsi Lake repairs made; filling up
I have many fond childhood memories of fishing and ice skating on Minsi Lake. As a result, I was pleased to hear the recent announcement that the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has completed repairs made to the lake’s spillway. The water level will be raised by approximately one foot per week in order to monitor the repairs, and the lake is expected to return to normal levels by the beginning of September. Several small concrete patches were replaced and the concrete joints and several cracks on the surface
of the dam’s spillway were sealed. The work was initially expected to be completed in June, but was delayed due to scheduling conflicts with other projects. While this is good news for the moment, the spillway must be rebuilt at some point because it is not big enough to meet current regulations. The PFBC estimates the repair cost to be more than $3 million. Problems like this exist all around the state. Minsi Lake is classified by the state Department of Environmental Protection as a high-hazard, unsafe dam. More than $56 million is needed to fix or
rebuild nine other similar structures. At this time, all of the projects remain unfunded. We have a great treasure right here in our backyard in Minsi Lake. My hope is that we can find the funding to address the needs of this and other great natural resources, so families like mine can make great memories there enjoying the many recreational opportunities it offers. Questions about this or any other legislative issue should be directed to my Mt. Bethel office at (570) 897-0401 or my Nazareth office at (610) 746-5090.

Appeal for traffic light at Lower Nazareth intersection By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News
Another resident’s appeal for a traffic light at the dangerous Newburg Rd. & Georgetown Rd. intersection was heard by the Lower Nazareth Township Board of Supervisors at their meeting this past Thursday. Ms. Dee Burritt of Newburg Rd. asked the supervisors for the double traffic signal to replace the yellow blinking caution signals on Newburg Rd., in light of a crash in which her son was seriously injured there with his motorcycle on April 27. The signals there now blink red on Georgetown Road in both directions. Earlier, Douglas Walker, who operates the Northamp-
in N o seyNaza reth Dear Nazareth, It’s August already and my grass is still so green! Last year we had a long hot spell without any rain in sight, and I’m sure there were two weeks the grass didn’t need cutting. This year some weeks I am out there mowing twice a week! The Nazareth-Bath Area
ton County Seed Co. on the north side of the intersection, had appealed for the traditional red-yellow-green lights following the extended grief he has experienced from the deaths of his daughter, 17-year-old Rebecka Walker, and her friend, Andrew J. Terry, in 1997 when their car was broadsided by a pick-up truck on Newburg Rd. as they tried to cross that road from Georgetown Road. Supervisor James Pennington on Thursday said the board will ask PennDOT to do a traffic study. Reportedly, the state transportation agency will do the study free of charge if the Lower Nazareth Township Supervisors agree to pay from $100,000 to
$200,000 for the traffic signals. Other Matters • The subdivision of First Park 33 preliminary/final received approval both for its waiver request and plans. The same for their lot two. • Keystone Real Estate Management was also approved for its preliminary subdivision and land development. • A zoning map amendment for Saratoga Farms also won the supervisors’ okay. • Fields at Trio Farms phase one received a letter of credit reduction from $274,000 to $216,065 and for phase two of the same development, a reduction from $346,492 to $146,723. The next board meeting will be on September 11 at 6:30 p.m.
Chamber of Commerce (201 N. Main) hosted a networking luncheon called WINN at The Longhorn Steakhouse (3784 Dryland Way, Easton). By participating in this kind of event, it gives me the chance to be introduced to new contacts for my business but also is a perfect way to meet new friends if you are new to the area. The Longhorn Steakhouse
served a soup/salad and half sandwich combination for our lunch. I choose the Shrimp and Lobster Chowder with the Grilled Fontina sandwich. Our dessert was the Dessert Sampler, three different yummy portions! Life is good! At the meeting I picked up a flyer that Judy Parrey was promoting for an Art & Wine Show at the Woodstone Country Club (3777 Dogwood Rd., Danielsville). Woodstone Country Club features a spacious, modern clubhouse with areas for dining, socializing, health, recreation and an overnight lodge. They offer banquet facilities for outings as well as weddings and business functions. The Art & Wine Show was held in their beautiful ballroom with a patio that overlooks their18 hole golf course. It was an overcast day, yet the golfers were out and event was well attended . There seemed to be about 15 artists showcasing their multiple talents.

I bought myself a fun pair of earrings that are crafted from peacock feathers. It’s amazing how these artists see our world and then create their experience in a wide range of techniques; glass, acrylics, pastels, oils, watercolors, sculpture, and photography. I enjoy talking to the artists and hearing how they become inspired and then create. I talked with an artist Fran Macdonald (www.artworkbyFranMac.com) who gave me a great idea for a Christmas gift for my mother! My mom is always so hard to buy for. Fran does Home Portraits working from a photo. Mom would love a watercolor of the old homestead! I also have a photo that I recently took while on a Caribbean cruise that would make a great acrylic painting for my living room! The sun came out and I sat out on the patio with a glass of rose’ wine and listened to the live music provided. Sitting with me at the same table I met another Chamber member (small world!)

jobs will be lost if he doesn’t act now. We applaud and fully support Wal-Mart workers and the workers employed by McDonalds, Burger King and other fast food companies, in their efforts to improve their wages and living standards. The majority of these workers are adults, trying to eke out a living on low wages. Many of them are working two or three jobs. They are employed by some of the largest and most profitable corporations on the planet which can afford to pay their employees decent wages and benefits. These workers are coming together to demand decent wages and dignity on the job. This proves that the way to better wages is to unionize. Our employment and labor laws should ensure that all workers earn enough to support themselves and their
On this Labor Day holiday thousands of workers across Pennsylvania, many of them proud members of labor unions, will draw attention to the contributions that all workers make to the economic and social fabric of our nation. We have a lot to celebrate as we move closer toward the realization of health security for millions of uninsured workers. This will be an historic achievement in progress for our sons and daughters and future generations of workers. No longer will they be one serious illness away from bankruptcy. It’s an important step toward the complete realization that health care is a basic human necessity and not a commodity. We will continue pushing strongly to convince Governor Corbett to pass Medicaid expansion for Pennsylvania. Both lives and
families. Working men and women should not have to rely on public assistance to pay for the necessities of life – food, clothing, shelter, transportation and health care. At one time in our nation’s history the jobs in the factories, mines and steel mills were low-wage, no- benefit, and unsafe jobs. It wasn’t until workers came together and organized unions that they were able to gain the bargaining strength they needed to create good jobs out of lowwage, no-benefit jobs. That is what is happening today around the country. People are coming together as they always have to help each other and to improve their working and living conditions. And we continue to promote and support this concept for all workers. All of us grew up being told that we need to get a good education in order to get a good job. But what we found out was that it takes more than a good education. It takes the economic and political strength of a union and collective bargaining to counter the greed of corporations and the shareholders. This is a lesson that should be taught in the schools and colleges. People should not have to learn this after they graduate from high school or college and start looking for a job. Workers both young and old are facing many challenges today. To meet the challenges will require regaining the bargaining strength that has been lost over many decades. The so-called experts talk around the real solution to the problem of growing income inequality between the richest and the rest of us. It took years to get to where we are now, in a deep hole, and it will take years to extricate ourselves and restore the bargaining strength that we need and deserve. And it’s important that our policy makers get it, otherwise the journey will take a little bit longer, perhaps the very next election cycle. Right now we are facing tough, but not insurmountable obstacles to improving jobs and job opportunities for all workers. Improving the pensions and retirement

open time, where they could do any number of activities including miniature golf, fishing, among others. During their pool time, the boys had the option to swim in the pool, or go down to the waterfront and take out a canoe or row boat. After the day’s activities were done it was time for evening colors back at the parade field in front of the dining hall where, just like at breakfast time, the boys would holler for Ron and his hat and then file into the dining hall for dinner. After dinner there were several activities the boys could participate in. Certain nights they gathered at the camp wide camp fire where the staff would perform songs and skits that all the campers would participate in. During the week at lunch time, they were entertained by a skit from the staff pertaining to the theme of this year’s camp, The quest for the holy quail. On Wednesday night, the boys were sent out on that quest, guided by a couple of staff members, in search of the lost holy quail. Not to be a spoiler, if you want to know the outcome of the quest, you have to find a member of Cub Pack 43, to find out how they made out in their quest. After each meal, one or more of the staff members would lead the entire dining hall in singing their “most favorite song in the whole wide world”. New Boys Do Well For the two boys at camp for their first year, aside from getting over their fears of sleeping in a tent for the first time, and their fear of “daddyleggers,” these boys earned the following awards: the outdoor activity, their geology belt loop, BB belt loop, astronomy pin, participated in flag ceremonies, and learned
The penalty for failure to report suspected child abuse is a third‐degree misdemeanor for the first violation and a second‐degree misdemeanor for a second or subsequent violation. “Everything depends on taking the responsibility to report seriously,” Liddle said. “There is no way to stop abuse or deal with it unless it’s reported in the first place.” About PFSA: PFSA provides training on recognizing and reporting suspected child abuse and neglect to schools, early childhood education centers, law enforcement agencies, religious institutions, and social service agencies. PFSA is the Pennsylvania sponsor of The Front Porch Project®, a training initiative that educates community members so they can play a vital role in child protection. PFSA also works with more than 50 affiliate agencies across Pennsylvania to provide information, educational materials, and programs that teach and support good parenting practices. Visit www.pa-fsa.org to learn more about PFSA.
how to tie several different knots. They even got to earn their patches for the BB and Archery award, either gold or black, depending on how many points they scored. The other experienced boys got to earn these awards: Forester, Naturalist, Readyman, and Aquanaut. For each of these awards the boys had to complete several requirements and demonstrate that they understand the principals that were being taught. Lots of Support All in all it was a great week at camp, most of the boys already looking forward to next year. But it all wouldn’t be possible if not for the dedicated parents who gave up their time to spend with these boys at camp so they can have and enjoy this experience, and also the extremely dedicated camp staff who work their summers, not just Akelaland, but Camp Trexler and Camp Minsi as well, to provide the most fun and excitement that they can so these boys can get the absolute most out of their scouting experience. So whether you were a parent there all week, or just able to visit for a couple of days, the boys from Pack 43 thank you for your support and allowing them this great opportunity. Cub Pack 43 meets Tuesday nights starting in September from 6:30 to 8:00pm in the church auditorium. Anyone interested in joining, please stop by and check us out. The pack is open to all boys ages 6 through 11. Hope to see you there.

mandated reporters and they have a legal obligation to report suspected child abuse,” Liddle explained. If mandated reporters, on the basis of their training and experience, have “reasonable cause” to suspect abuse, they must make an immediate report to ChildLine, the state’s child abuse registry and hotline. This applies to children under their care, supervision, guidance, or training. The ChildLine telephone number is 800-932-0313. “To put it simply,” Liddle said, “if you work with kids and you have reasonable cause to suspect that one of the kids with whom you work has been abused, you need to either make a report or cause a report to be made. Anyone can report suspected abuse, but if you work with kids, you are legally obligated to report suspected abuse.” Within 48 hours of making the report to ChildLine, a written report of the suspected child abuse is made to the county Children and Youth Agency where the abuse occurred. This report form is commonly referred to as a CY-47 and is available on the PFSA website.
More than 3,200 Acres to preservation Program
Pennsylvania’s Agricultural Land Preservation Board reports that 3,246 additional acres has been safeguarded on 45 farms in 19 counties through the state’s nationally renowned farmland preservation program. The board preserved farms in Adams, Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Clinton, Cumberland, Dauphin, Fulton, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Ly-
August 29-Sept. 4, 2013 19 coming, Mercer, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Sullivan and Westmoreland counties. Since the program began in 1988, state, county and local governments have invested more than $1.2 billion to preserve 478,246 acres on 4,471 farms in 57 counties for future agricultural production. “It’s a great day for our nationleading farmland preservation program, made possible by producers who recognize the importance of keeping prime land in agriculture production,” said Agriculture Secretary George Greig. “Their foresight is helping to keep Pennsylvania growing for generations to come.” In its 25th year, the Pennsylvania Agricultural Conservation Easement Purchase Program identifies properties and slows the loss of prime farmland to non-agricultural uses. The program enables state, county and local governments to purchase conservation easements, also called development rights, from owners of quality farmland. In some cases, the federal Farm and Ranchlands Protection Program provides additional assistance. Last fiscal year, Pennsylvania received a record $6.1 million in federal reimbursements. For more information, visit www.agriculture.state.pa.us and search “farmland preservation.” A list of the farms preserved in Northampton County includes: • The Karl Miller farm, a 20.13-acre crop farm • The Bruce Predmore farm, a 49.44acre crop and livestock operation • The Scott Pysher farm, a 35.26-acre crop farm • The John Bernick farm, 75.11-acre crop farm • The Lorraine Holland farm, a 40.87-acre crop farm • The Donald and Barbara Loock farm, a 58.33-acre crop farm • The Craig and Stacey Newton farm, a 65.41-acre crop farm
