The Home News Moore Township Plans to update Flood plain ordinance By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

vent it from turning into a subdivision would be awesome,”Tashner said. New Ordinance A new ordinance allows alcohol consumption in the recreation area pavilion, but not on the playing fields. The supervisors said they had a lot of requests for this with parties often held in the pavilion. Before, no alcohol was allowed. The board said when the pavilion is rented for $50, a permit will be given for alcohol. If everything is kept in place at the end of the use, the fee is returned. Garbage Ordinance The garbage and waste haulers ordinance requires that waste is discarded properly and not dumped along roadsides or in forests where violators are subject to a fine of no less than $100 or more than $300. There is no single hauler in the township, but all residents must contract with a private hauler, estimated at seven or eight now picking up garbage and recyclables. Having the ordinance in place qualifies the township for a possible $250,000 in grant money. In remarks later, Gordon Derhammer said that the roads should be marked with load limits because garbage trucks are heavy. Equipment Purchases Two bids were received for a used backhoe. The board approved the low bid of $52,000 from Richard Markulics for a 2008 backhoe. They also okayed the purchase of a John Deere tractor and mower deck for the recreation center at a cost of Continued on page 3

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

Protenogenic Amino Acids The year was 1806. French chemists Louis-Nicolas Vauquelin and Pierre Jean Robiquet isolated a compound in asparagus that was subsequently named asparagine, the first amino acid to be discovered. These gentleman were the first, but not the last, to become enthralled with the building blocks of the human body. Essentially, an amino acid is a molecule that our bodies utilizes to maintain and repair our bodies. Of the some 500 known amino acids, 22 are specifically protein building blocks (protenogenic), of which, only 14 can be “manufactured” from within the body. So this means 8 CANNOT BE MADE BY THE BODY. In other words, these ‘essential’ amino acids MUST come from diet. My favorite source to obtain these essential amino acids is eggs….especially the yokes. The problem generally is that overcooking food may alter the amino acids, which is commonly referred to as becoming de-natured. Denatured is the “unraveling” of the molecule so that it has a straight or linear shape to it. Essentially heat alters the molecule. Denaturing of proteins is what happens naturally once inside the body yet a debate rages

on as to if this process should take place outside the body. We will let others debate. We will just keep things simple and do our best to eat real, unadulterated food… So, here is the process of how the body uses protein as described to a class of school children. “We eat proteins. Let’s say that a ‘sentence’ is like a piece of chicken. The stomach breaks down the sentences into ‘words’ and the intestines take these words and break them down into ‘letters’ aka protenogenic amino acids. These letters get absorbed into the blood stream and travel throughout the body and reform back into ‘words’ which become…. your bicep or other parts of the body. Get it? I hope so. What if you’re missing the eight essential protenogenic amino acids? In this case your body will not be as healthy and vibrant as it should be. Maybe you’re chronically fatigued, suffer with “fibromyalgia”, joint and muscle pain, loose or poor skin tone sagging tissue or a litany of potential problems. In 1946 Dr. Royal Lee, a genius of a man and the creator of Standard Process nutritionals, was well aware of this issue. Dr. Lee felt that the state of nutrition in America was


deplorable. Imagine what Dr. Lee would say about the state of diet these days!! Because of the need he saw, Dr. Lee created Protefood. This all natural, whole food supplement contains all 8 essential amino acids in one capsule. Incredible. Know that I routinely prescribe Protefood regularly for my nutrition patients. Wonderful addition to a natural based healing program. I especially consider Protefood as it is easily absorbed and digested. Know that high levels of acid and enzymes are needed to properly breakdown the proteins. In the millions who use acid reflux medicines acid is suppressed and protein digestion compromised. Another reason perhaps for dis-ease of the human body. If you feel lousy in spite of all best efforts I would ask you to consider the supplementation with Protefood and acquiring essential amino acids from a healthy diet. My best to you all! . “Natural Perspectives” is a health commentary only and does not claim to diagnose and/or make treatment recommendations.

News Sermonette Daniel E. Lundmark, Pastor Northampton Assembly of God

A Letter From A “Doubting” Christian

Some years ago I received a letter stating “I have been a Christian for my entire life (more than sixty years) but I’m finding that I’m doubting my faith and the believability of a Christ who doesn’t return.” It was signed “A concerned ‘doubting’ Christian, whose faith is lapsing” after asking, “When is something going to happen, or does the world go on ad infinitum?” The whole chapter of 2 Peter 3 deals with this, predicting some will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (v.4). Peter tells how God had revealed the coming global flood to Noah who believed God and kept faith while he built the ark and preached repentance to an unbelieving world about the coming judgment for many years more than those of the writer of the letter. God’s word proved reliable, “the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished” (v.6). In Matthew 24:37, Jesus related this fulfillment of God’s word to the certainty of His return when He declared, “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Please also see “Jesus is Coming…” at: http:// We tend to view things from the perspective of a limited lifespan, whereas Peter states, “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (v.8). There is a reason why God has delayed judgment and the return of Christ. Peter explains, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise…but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (v.9). In Noah’s day, God could have instantly created the ark and sent the flood immediately, but “the longsuffering of God waited” mercifully to give time for people to repent and be saved (1 Peter 3:20). We all should be thankful He gave us time to be saved! While we as Christians continue to patiently anticipate Christ’s promised return, we must take advantage of the time He gives us to win others to Him as He instructed us to do in Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” We must also heed Peter’s warnings in 2 Peter 3:14 and 17 to carefully maintain our relationship with the Lord, “Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” and “beware lest ye, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.”

It’s always a good time of eating, singing and dancing to polka music, and playing games. Eating is my speed, especially the clams, made famous by the late P.A.K. from Bath, Pa. . . . .Hats off to the American Legion in town for having the state golf tourney here last weekend. There was supposed to be a couple pictures with the story, I hear, but they never came off somebody’s iPod. I reckon that can be a

problem. Ye Ed’s been having some head scratching lately, too, with his camera going on the fritz, so he wants to get another one. You know how it is – a picture tells 1000 words. . . . Took notice in last week’s paper that Wilbur Kline from Northampton passed away. He usta wait on customers at the store his former late son-in-law, Dave Howell, had called Northampton Coin & Jewelry. My sympathies to daughters Sandy Howell and Linda McKenzie and granddaughter Sarah Schaffer. . . . While in Northampton, I see the Siegfried railroad station museum will be open on Sunday. They have a nice facility there, something good looking at. . . . I hear the Lions are trying to organize another Lions club over there, and borough manager Gene Zarayko is one of the early signers on. The Lions do lots of things that serve people who are down on their luck, and the Exchange club is good, too, for their work on battling child abuse. . . . Marcia Hahn is having an event to help veterans this Friday up at the Bushkill Township Vol. Fire Co. You veterans might be smart to attend it. . . . Gotta fix my lawnmower. It has konked out, and the grass, and weeds, are growing. Gr-r-r-r! See ya, folks. Have a nice warm weekend.

22nd Youth Field Day Held at Stockertown R&G

By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News More than 170 boys and girls participated in the 22nd annual Youth Field Day on Saturday morning and afternoon, held at Stockertown Rod & Gun Club. It was sponsored by the Youth Field Day Foundation, along with financial assistance from Rudy’s Car Wash. It was a beautiful, sunny day with low humidity. The youngsters, with the help of experienced sportsmen, shot archery, fished for trout along a canal, shot black powder muzzleloader guns, pellet B-B guns and shotguns, and learned the safe way of canoeing on the club’s lake,

among other outdoor sports. There were a total of nine stations, in which groups of youngsters participated, one at a time. Their parents enjoyed watching the children take a hands-on approach to these sports. They also helped put trout that were caught by their kids into plastic bags. Sportsmen helped the kids bait their hooks. At each of the locations, volunteer sportsmen, mostly members of the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, explained about the various types of arrows and how to shoot them at targets, saw how muzzleloader rifles were readied for firing, and how to safely handle them. Members of the local chapter of

National Wild Turkey Federation guided the youngsters as they shot claybirds out of the air. At the lake where the boys and girls paddled, members of the Pennsylvania Water Rescue team emphasized the proper way of getting in and out of canoes, and stressed the wearing of personal flotation devices (life jackets). The Game Commission also showed crossbows. Chapter 10 of the Pa. Trappers Association had furs and showed how to trap small animals. All in all, it was a fun day for the children and their parents and siblings, learning that the outdoor sports are a valuable tool in handling wildlife resources as well.

The Scoop on Pets Animal Blood Bank

Has your pet ever had an accident or illness, which caused him to require blood? Did you wonder where the blood came from? Just like human blood banks, there are many animal blood banks across the country. Veterinarians and Pet Emergency centers can acquire blood from these centers, just as hospitals get their blood products from human blood banks. We are very lucky, living in the Lehigh Valley, to have the Valley Central Animal Blood Bank as a resource. My Maggie was a donor for several years, and was recently retired, due to a need for daily medication. Pet blood donation is key to keeping the blood banks stocked with blood. Once the whole blood is collected, it can be separated into packed red blood cells and fresh frozen plasma, depending on the particular need. The blood and its parts are used for snakebites, pancreatitis, surgeries, accidents, clotting disorders, anemia, and much more. The actual donation process is quite painless for the pet. Maggie enjoyed going to donate. After the donation is complete, the pet is offered vitamins and a can of wet, tasty food and water, instead of the juice and donuts offered to human donors. The blood bank does a required yearly blood testing, which checks for Lyme, Heartworm and other blood diseases, at no cost to the donor, saving on vet bills. Most banks provide a free toy, bag of treats and heartworm meds and Frontline, also at no charge to the donor. They also provide lots of love to the pet. If you are considering having your dog donate blood, he must meet the following requirements: •1-8 years of age •Use flea & tick preventative •Use year-round Heartworm preventative •Current on all required vaccinations •At least 50 pounds •Able to be still for 5 minutes without squirming •Not on prescription medication

Contact: Bill Sanders 610-432-2383 *Retired Employee of MARY FASHIONS*

Hairy Legs! Generally, before your pet’s first donation, he will have an orientation appointment. During the appointment, the initial blood testing will be done, and he will meet the staff, in order to evaluate his comfort level with being kept still for the 5 minutes. Any questions that you have will be answered by the staff, and hopefully, you will be able to schedule your pet’s first blood draw. If you would like to sign your pet up to donate, contact the Valley Central Emergency Blood Bank at 610-435-5588 ext 110. Denise Cassidy-Dietsch Doodie Calls, LLC

The family of Tillie Duda

would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Chris and her staff of caregivers at Alexandria Manor in Bath for the exceptional care given to Tillie over the past three years as Tillie progressed through the final stages of Alzheimer's Disease. Caring for Alzheimer's patients is extremely difficult due to their mood swings, memory lapses and the progressive loss of their ability to perform normal functions we all take for granted. Tillie was treated with love, kindness and dignity as a member of the Alexandria Manor family and her stay in the Advanced Care Unit was made as comfortable as possible. Tillie passed away on Friday May 30th at the age of 92. Judging by the staff who said their goodbyes and paid their respects to Tillie, she will be missed by not only our family but also the special people from her Alexandria Manor family.

Northampton residents request stop sign By JANA BOSKEY The Northampton Borough Council meeting began with a number of concerned citizens raising the issue of putting a stop sign at the intersection

of West 4th and Main Streets in the borough. The residents feel it is necessary because of safety concerns and the high volume of traffic at the intersection. Most expressed

the need for, at least, a traffic study to be conducted. Solicitor, William McCarthy explained that it is ultimately up to the council whether or not a study will be done. Council President John Yurish, while understanding of their concerns, didn’t see anything that warranted installing the stop sign. “I don’t see many people coming out your street there that have issues. We haven’t had any fender benders for a couple years,”Yurish said. A recent accident that occurred approximately a month ago was then discussed. A car pulling out of a gas station at the intersection was clipped by another vehicle that was driving above the posted 25 miles per hour speed limit. Northampton Chief of Police, Ronald Morey, was called on by Yurish to present the findings of his investigation into the accident. “We have had two at accidents at fourth and main, that weren’t exactly at the intersection,” Chief Morey said. He was unconvinced that the lack of a stop sign was a direct cause for the accident. “It could have been,” Chief Morey admitted. He said that the police department has looked at the accidents at East 4th and Howertown road, which total 11 since 2011. Chief Morey offers the idea of the police department installing a “black box” that could calculate the amount of traffic going through the intersection. Councilman Ed Pany voiced his support for the citizens that live on 4th Street. “I met with the residents of 4th Street, some of these people are my former students. I promised that if the stop sign comes up for a vote, I would support the stop sign. I will not go back on my word. If these people want a stop sign, and I, Edward Pany, am their councilman, regardless of my concerns, I will support you people,” Pany said. Councilman Gene Zarayko explained that a traffic study would need to be implemented before the sign is considered. Pany offered the motion to approve a traffic study and was seconded by Councilman Anthony Lopsonski, Sr.

Hahn Supports Legislation to Prevent Use of Welfare to Gamble, Buy Tobacco Products Submitted by Scott Little

The House Health Committee moved legislation that would prevent future use of

public assistance for gambling and purchasing tobacco products to the House floor last Monday. State Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Northampton), a

member of the committee and a co-sponsor of the bill, voted to support House Bill 907, which passed largely along party lines. “The welfare system is intended to support Pennsylvanians who are having difficulty with some of life’s basic necessities,” Hahn said. “Most of us would agree cigarettes

and gambling are an extravagance, especially for anyone in need of public assistance and on a tight budget.” House Bill 907 would prohibit the purchase of tobacco and tobacco paraphernalia with electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards and EPPI cards that are issued for child support payments. In addition, public assistance may not be used at any entity licensed by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. “The bill was also amended to prevent use of these cards at strip clubs or any establishment that offers adult-oriented entertainment,” Hahn added. “As was mentioned in the committee meeting, this legislation is far from perfect; however, it is another step in the effort to ensure the significant amount of money we budget for welfare gets to the people who truly need it for things they truly need.” Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Hahn’s district office at 610-746-2100.
