Paddles up…So that no one Faces cancer alone Submitted by JEN GIBBS The inaugural Cancer Support Community of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s Dragon Boat Festival took place at Evergreen Lake in Bath, PA on Saturday, June 16. This Dragon Boat Festival was the first of its kind in the Lehigh Valley. Men and women competed side by side towards the same goal, being the fastest boat to cross the finish line. Six Dragon Boat Teams consisting of 20 paddlers, a steerer, and a drummer participated in the event. No experience was necessary and teams were given a practice day to prepare for the competition. Quadrant Private Wealth, the festival’s presenting sponsor, was the overall winning team for the day with a time of one minute and three seconds. Second place went to Jen Sinclair’s Misfits Dragon Boat Team. Highlights

of the day included plenty of sunshine, a gorgeous day at the lake, an eye dotting ceremony to awaken the Dragon, eight Dragon Boat races, DJ, vendors, Red

Robin and an award ceremony. The proceeds from the festival benefitted the Cancer Support Community of the Greater Lehigh Valley. Benjamin Longacre receives congratulations from President Donald Trump during the graduation and commissioning ceremony at the United States Naval Academy.

Hahn Bill Empowers Parents in Substance Abuse cases Submitted by SCOTT LITTLE Giving parents the final word in substance abuse cases involving their children is the basis for legislation authored by state Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Bushkill Township) that is headed to Gov. Tom Wolf ’s desk following a unanimous vote in the House Thursday. “There are never easy answers in times when loved ones fall victim to drug and alcohol abuse,” said Hahn. “If that loved one is a minor, it’s my belief the parent or legal guardian knows best when it comes to treatment decisions, and that is why I authored House Bill 17.” Hahn’s legislation would amend the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Control Act to allow a parent or legal guardian to provide consent over the objection of a minor with respect to furnishing medical care or counseling related to diagnosis or treatment of substance abuse. The bill does protect the patient’s rights in that anyone providing medical care may only share with the parents information that would reduce the threat of harm to the minor. “With the unfortunate volume of cases of substance abuse these days, I’m hoping the governor acts quickly and signs House Bill 17 into law,” Hahn added. Questions about this or any legislative issue may be directed to Hahn’s district office at 610746-2100.

5 ways cooking Benefits your Mental state submitted by ASHLEY PONTIUS It’s no secret that cooking healthy food provides benefits to our bodies, but there’s also evidence that the act of preparing meals can benefit our minds as well. Mental health experts credit cooking with helping to relieve depression, anxiety, eating disorders and other conditions. As various forms of meditation have become in vogue as ways to relax in our busy world, cooking is joining that genre, according to health professionals, working adults and people who cook for a living. “Cooking at its core is comprehensive  meditation  with the assurance of a good, healthy meal as the reward,” says Zipora Einav (, a chef to celebrities and  author of Recipe for a Delicious Life.  “Cooking can lift you to a meditative place Continued on page 16

Natural perspectives For the health-minded individual

Wheat Watchers


I understand the concept and completely agree with using a system to control our weight. Clearly, better success rates in any area are enhanced with a proven system. In this particular case, we need to focus our attention on our true desire: to be lean and healthy; for what good is it to be a skinny sick person? For example, I care for those that are afflicted with Crohn’s disease, an autoimmune condition. Those afflicted are not usually heavy set. In fact, they typically have trouble holding onto their weight. In this particular diseased state, the immune system has gone a little crazy and is said to be attacking itself. So again, healthy and lean is the goal. Our

Helping for 20 years approach to treatment of auto immune conditions in general is based on the premise, and perhaps rightly so, that the body is in fact attacking itself; Lupus, MS, scleroderma, type 1 diabetes, Graves, Hashimotos, thyroiditis psoriasis, eczema, rheumatoid

arthritis, Raynaud’s and many more are common in our area and throughout the country. From our natural perspective it actually seems against the natural order of things that God would design our bodies to attack itself recklessly. But that’s what we are told and we go with it. We go to the doctor, we go to rehab, we go get surgery, and we go further into the diseased state and the doldrums of hopelessness. Yes, I am painting a sorrowful picture because quite frankly, these growing autoimmune presentations have been growing in leaps and bounds during the past twenty years I have been in practice. Not only am I seeing these issues in greater frequency, I am also seeing it at younger ages and increasing severity. I am more committed than ever to help in whatever way I can. With that said and while so many unknowns exist as to the real cause(s) of these many autoimmune conditions, I Continued on page 5

Freedom’s Restraints

Once upon a time, a kite was thrilled as he rose high above the earth. Suddenly he found he could go no farther. His master had quit letting out the string. “Why does he hold me back like this?” he fretted. “If he would only let me loose and give me freedom, I’d show you how high I could go!” While the kite was fretting, the string broke. The kite wavered for a minute, was blown from side to side, then suddenly turned topsy-turvy, and came floating down, unable to right itself. Finally it was swept by the strong wind up against a tree branch and there it hung, all tattered and torn. Its freedom was its ruin! History traces the roots of American freedom to a deep faith in God. Any unbiased study of our heritage confirms this truth and even our currency still testifies to it, “IN GOD WE TRUST.” But today, many Americans are rejecting God and His moral laws. If our nation rejects God, our fate will be that of the kite’s! Freedom from God is the sure road to bondage. This is seen in the history of the nations as well as in the arena of personal living. Repressive habits form in the absence of submission to God’s moral restraints. Jesus said it this way, “Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin” (John 8:34). Sin is essentially the prideful expression of self-will. It is the transgression (disobedience and rejection) of God’s law “For sin is the transgression of the law” (1 John 3:4). The inevitable result is spiritual bondage. Are you experiencing this bondage? Repent of your sin. Submit to Jesus Christ and you “shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).

Dr. Clearie Continued from page 3

do feel that one thing in particular rises above all else as a major contributor to inflaming mild autoimmune conditions into an inferno. That culprit is none other than gluten proteins. Now before you yawn and flip the page, stop and hear what I am saying. I treat so many patients. Day after day and year after year. I look. I watch. I obsess about what is afflicting those that I care for and I am telling you here and now that whatever ails you, will dramatically improve when you decide to remove gluten from every aspect of your life. Look, over the years I myself haven’t given gluten the seriousness it deserves. In fact, when the gluten-free craze hit all I could see was another marketing ploy being played out. Candidly, now I am sure of it, yet that doesn’t negate the science that it is based upon. Plain and simple; stop eating gluten. If you have depression/ anxiety/mental and emotional problems, stop eating gluten. If you have IBS, stop eating gluten. Having hormonal problems and going through changes of life? Stop eating gluten. If you get chronic headaches, stop the gluten. Chronic joint paint; stop the gluten. Stomachache, rashes, bladder pain, twitching, seizures, diabetes, high cholesterol, autism, leg swelling, allergies and asthma - you had better stop the gluten. Simply put, if you are human stop eating gluten. I am not wrong. I may have been wrong on the color I painted our son’s room or my comment about my daughter intentionally buying ripped looking jeans but I

am just not wrong on this. Your life will change. I don’t know how obviously but you will notice improvement. The sad part to all of this is that probably one percent out of the thousands who read this will actually make the decision to once and for all do something to help themselves. That’s why I keep beating the drum article after article and oftentimes repeat what I have said prior. So to the handful of people that remove gluten let me assure you that you are going to be so happy in a few weeks if not days.

I am not saying it will be easy because gluten is everywhere. It isn’t just in wheat but that’s perhaps the most common. Just because the label says gluten free doesn’t mean it’s free from gluten. So yes, you need to be a wheat watcher but you need to be more vigilant than that. Soups, salads dressing, and even makeup can have it. It’ll take effort and focus, but do it. Give up all gluten. Do it starting now. My best to you. "Natural Perspectives" is a health commentary only and does not claim to diagnose and/or make treatment recommendations. Always seek the advice of your health care professional.

GAB OVER by Pete THE FENCE G. Ossip Man, oh man! Can you believe it? It’s the last week of June already, and next Wednesday is the 4th of July! How time does fly! . . . There will be ceremonial parades, speeches and plenty of fireworks going off in public displays. If you have them at home, do it safely. . . .It’s great seeing all the honor students listed for Northampton High School. I’m sure the same could be said of the students over in Nazareth and other schools in the area. If they apply themselves, do their studies as they should, then in all likelihood, they deserve to be listed as honor students. So keep it up,

kids! . . .Class sizes are a lot bigger than they used to be, maybe because of so many people moving here from New Jersey and New York. . . .Have you taken notice about the community days that are being held around here? It just shows how much we enjoy living around these parts of the world –– boroughs and townships rather than cities –– where people get to know each other more personally. Don’t let it slip away by texting all the time, and not talking to each other, face to face. That’s one thing I don’t like about the technology we have now. Enough said. Get to know your neighbors by their first names. . . .The Phillies are still hanging in there with their young players. Sunday’s game in Washington was a real battle that the Nationals refused to give in, and even though the Phillies lost that one game

they gave it their best shot and it was another series win. Now they’re playing those tough Yankees, especially those two or three sluggers at the top of the lineup. That will be another big test for the Phils. . . . Bath’s down town municipal building looks good from the outside. We should see what it’s like on the inside pretty soon. Maybe we’ll hear about the opening date when Town Council meets in July. The parking lot needs new paving, too. Same goes for local streets that still have winter potholes. They could at least be patched if it costs too much to pave the whole streets like Washington, Penn, and Northampton Streets, and Barrall Avenue. . . Still good swimming weather at the Borough Nazareth and Northampton pools, and they’re crowded. . . . Enjoy the Fourth of July and think what it means that we have a Declaration of Independence and a Constitution to guide us. Have a safe holiday!

Scavello Bill Cracking down On littering set To become law Submitted by

CHRISTINE ZUBECK Legislation sponsored by Senator Mario Scavello (R-40) to reduce littering across Pennsylvania by requiring offenders to pick

up trash received final legislative approval and will be sent to the Governor for enactment. “When you look at all of the trash along our roads, it’s clear that fines alone are not enough to deter this crime,” said Scavello. “Littering is like graffiti and other acts of vandalism – when people engage in it without fear of punishment, it sends the message that no one cares and leads to more litter. It’s time to show we really care.” Senate Bill 431 requires that for a first offense of scattering rubbish, a person is required to pick up litter or illegally dumped trash for between five and 30 hours within six months, in addition to the existing fine of $50 to $300. For a second or subsequent offense, the offender may also be required to pick up litter or illegally dumped trash for 30 to 100 hours over one year, in addition to the existing fine of $300 to $1,000. Furthermore, existing fines are doubled when committed in a litter enforcement corridor and tripled for litter that originated from a commercial business within a litter enforcement corridor. To ensure safety when litter is being picked up, Senate Bill 431 requires that a vehicle must yield the right-of-way to any autho-

rized vehicle or pedestrian engaged in work upon a highway within a litter enforcement corridor. “We are grateful for Senator Scavello’s leadership and for the entire legislature’s willingness to work together to strengthen Pennsylvania’s litter and illegal dumping laws,” said Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful President Shannon Reiter. “The bipartisan and unanimous support for this bill underscores our shared commitment to keeping Pennsylvania beautiful.” "The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau wholeheartedly supports SB 431 and is grateful for the Senator's leadership,” said PMVB President/CEO Christopher Barrett. “This new law will add a very important arrow in the quiver of our ‘Pick up the Poconos’ anti-litter initiative.” “I’ve been working for years to put some teeth in laws designed to combat littering. This crime is bad for civic pride and bad for the environment. I am grateful to my legislative colleagues for passing this legislation unanimously, and I look forward to a cleaner, healthier landscape that we can all be proud of,” said Scavello.

cab and a rear open-air seat that pulled out in place of the trunk, called a “rumble seat.” Frank and Tessy sat in the cab, while Larry and I sat in the rumble seat, as Frank took us for sunset rides on backcountry roads. A favorite was Hatch Gravel Road, at that time of day when the fragrance of honeysuckle blossoms permeated the evening air.

Just a short way heading north out of Bath on Chestnut Street lays Hatch Gravel Road. In the 1950s, it was a narrow dirt road cut close through the native flora that reached out into the roadway. It leads to a small hamlet of homes called Hatch Gravel. According to “Place Names of Northampton County, PA” by James and Linda Wright, the name was derived, when long ago, a drunken man sat in the middle of the road. When asked what he was doing there, he replied, “Hatching eggs.” It was later found that he only hatched gravel. My boyhood and forever friend was Larry Valo. He was the only child of Frank and Tessy Valo who lived one door away from my family on North Chestnut Street. They often invited me along, as Larry’s almost brother,

Northampton Rental ordinance Redrafted By KERI LINDENMUTH After a contentious and heated debate over the borough’s rental inspection ordinance during their previous meeting, the Northampton Borough Council’s rental inspection committee is redrafting the ordinance. Councilwoman Judy Kutzler, a member of the committee, said the committee is working to “redraft and address the problems and issues” brought up by Mayor Thomas Reenock, other council members, and some borough landlords. She said the ordinance will be ready for the borough’s July meeting and for public discussion “no later than September.” In other news, council discussed disturbance issues at Canal Street Park. In the past, council has expressed concerns over noise complaints and damage done by visitors from outside the borough. Councilwoman Kutzler broached the idea of moving the parking meters from Main Street, which only make about $4 a week, to Canal Street Park in order to discourage some of the issues. “The people in that ward should not have to put up with that aggravation,” she said. Finally, following the approval of a request to close Stewart Street for a block party, Councilman Anthony Lopsonzski, Sr. voiced his hope that such requests become more common. He said these requests are “satisfying,” and a good way for people to meet their neighbors. “If you can get together with a few neighbors on your street, do it,” he said.

leagues in approving a $32.7 billion fiscal year 2018-19 state budget on Wednesday. He issued the followed statement in response: “I’m pleased we passed an on-time budget that continues our work to put and keep Pennsylvania on the right track to grow the economy. The past two budgets have been the smallest spending increases in years and well below the rates of inflation. “We have done all this and still increased funding for our schools each year by $100 million for basic education. We also have increased our support of early education and special education. In addition, we committed an additional $30 million for career and technical education. As the sponsor of legislation to increase student awareness about workforce needs and opportunities, we need to support education that leads to good-paying jobs that do not require a college degree. We are not shortchanging higher education either. We are providing a 3.3 percent increase to the State System of Higher Education and a 3.3 percent increase to our community colleges and the staterelated universities. This should help reduce the need for in-state tuition increases. “In addition to increasing education funding, we have created a block grant program to assist school districts with improving security. The $60 million initiative will allow schools to address their most pressing safety needs, whether it be school resource officers, metal detectors, school safety assessments and preplan-

ning or other facility upgrades. The last thing students should worry about while gaining an education is their safety.” For more information on the 2018-19 budget, visit The 183rd District includes South Whitehall (part), Washington and Whitehall (part) townships and Slatington Borough in Lehigh.

Dryland UCC’s buffet dinner to benefit Andy Weaver Wheelchair Fundraiser Submitted by RICHARD DURN Andy Weaver is a 2004 graduate of Nazareth High School and a 2008 graduate of Hiram G. Andrews Center in Johnstown,

PA. He is known around here as Nazareth’s number one fan, the face of Nazareth Area School District and the pulse of Nazareth. His passions are Nazareth High School sports, whether he

is a ticket taker, a coach, a fan, or a media correspondent for The Home News. He is amazing and proof that no matter what obstacles you encounter in life, you can overcome them with persis-

tence, strong faith and a strong belief in yourself. Andy has battled Cerebral Palsy all his life and as such depends on a wheelchair to get around. His current chair is slowly breaking down and without it he is completely immobile. He needs approximately $12,000 for a new chair and we are trying to help him reach his goals to get “new legs” so he can keep being the Voice of Nazareth, collecting tickets at many different school events and being there for all the sports teams he supports. Bring your family and friends

to Dryland UCC’s fundraiser buffet dinner to help Andy. The dinner will be held on Saturday, July 7 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. The cost is $12 for adults and $6 for children ages six through 12. The menu includes: oven baked ham, boneless stuffed chicken breast, our own homemade filling, mashed potatoes, oven roasted fresh vegetables, string beans italiano, rolls, salad, hot and cold beverages and dessert. Dryland UCC is located ¼ mile west of the Newburg Inn on Newburg Road. For additional information contact Rich at 484-894-9799.

Emrick approves state budget bill Submitted by SCOTT LITTLE State Rep. Joe Emrick (RNazareth) voted Wednesday to support House Bill 2121, the general appropriations portion of the proposed 2018-19 state budget. The legislation, which passed by a 188-10 margin, will now be taken up by the state Senate. Emrick offered this statement after House passage of the bill: “Three years ago, Pennsylvania’s fiscal picture looked gloomy and our revenue numbers were deep ‘in the red.’ Thanks to responsible fiscal policy and holding the line on attempts to raise taxes, we are now ‘in the black,’ and advancing a budget bill that includes no broad-based taxes and would use the surplus to re-establish Pennsylvania’s Rainy Day Fund. “Statewide PreK-12 funding would eclipse the $12 billion figure for the first time, with significant increases for the Bangor, Easton and Nazareth Area school districts. House Bill 2121 also includes an additional $30 million for career and technical education and commits more money to higher education. “This key budget bill also features a new $60 million line item for school safety. This initiative will give schools flexibility in deciding how and where to address their individual safety issues, and the money is held in a restricted account, meaning it cannot be used for other purposes. “Two other new line items confront significant health concerns. Doctors are calling Pennsylvania ‘ground zero’ for Lyme disease,

Over 40 Yrs. Experience

and approximately $2.5 million is allocated for prevention of this potentially debilitating illness. The health of Pennsylvania agriculture is also threatened by the spotted lanternfly, and new funding is being designated to fight this invasive insect that has been sighted throughout Northampton County. “House Bill 2121 keeps spending within the rate of inflation. It sufficiently supports the core functions of government while not asking more from Pennsylvania taxpayers. My Senate colleagues should have no problem moving the bill to the governor’s desk well before the June 30 deadline.

real peace and genuine happiness for yourself in mind. You’re giving to others; now give some of this to yourself.” Chef Zipora lists five mental health benefits that cooking brings: Relieves stress. Cooking can clear the head and relax the body. Family therapist Lisa Bahar toldPsychology Today that a mindfulness on the moment – kitchen tasks such as chopping and stirring – makes the act of cooking  meditative. “You are present in the task, doing something physical, and not distracted by the stresses of the day,” Zipora says. “It’s a nourishing, centering act that gets you to slow down.” Gives joy. It’s easy to dismiss cooking as just another household chore, but you may derive joy from cooking that you don’t get from mundane tasks. “Cooking is an innately rewarding experience,” says Zipora. “You can enhance it however you like. Music happens to be the seasoning of my life. Classical puts me in a zone when I’m cooking.  When you’re enjoying working in the kitchen and listening to your favorite music, all of a sudden you’re not just cooking, it’s like you’re flying with your feet on the ground. Cooking has all the ingredients of good vibrations.” Provides better brain health.  The clearest link between cooking and mental health is good nutrition; numerous studies have found compounds like antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals found naturally in food can help protect your brain. “It’s easier to control the quality of your diet when you prepare much of the food yourself,” Zipora says. Makes you more creative.  Part of the fun of cooking is thinking outside the box. “Cooking should be considered an art, and with new ingredients, you can explore new areas of cooking and surprise your family with a meal that they will have never seen coming,” Zipora says. “Perfect recipes, come up with new ones, and let your creative juices flow.” Boosts self-confidence. “You feel a strong sense of accomplishment when you’ve prepared something satisfying,” Zipora says. “When you’ve prepared a nice meal for several people that confidence will surge, and it can spread into other areas of your life. It will inspire you to try new things.” “Cooking without a doubt nourishes your psychological well-being,” Zipora says. “At the end of a long work day, it soothes the soul and the mind.”
