Number of efforts Underway to help Bath fire victims By THE HOME NEWS STAFF

On Sunday, April 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., a picnic style luncheon will be held in the fellowship hall of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Bath to benefit the Briele family of eight, who had a fire that destroyed their home on March 3. One hundred percent of the donations received that day will go the Briele Family Fire Emergency Fund. Matching funds in support of the luncheon and fundraisers will be received from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. The picnic luncheon will consist of beef/turkey barbecue, hot dogs, macaroni and potato salads, baked beans, and potato chips. Dessert and a bake sale prepared by local churches will be sold separately. Donations for baked goods for the bake sale will be greatly appreciated. A benevolent fund has been established for the Briele family at Christ U.C.C. Church to accept monetary donations. Tax deductible

contributions can be made to the church on behalf of the family. Checks should be made payable to the church with “Briele Family” on the memo line. A Tastefully Simple fundraiser will also be held. To order, go to http://www. cgrube1 and go under the “Briele Family Fundraiser”. All items ordered will be directly shipped to the person ordering, and 20% of the sales will go to the Briele Family Fire Emergency Fund. Anyone wanting to know more about the community relief fund should go to the Facebook page, Briele Family Fire Emergency or see Jeannie Judd Wagner (610-392-1199) or Jessica Kraemer. John and Kelly Briele and their six teenagers (five girls and one boy) suffered a devastating fire which destroyed their home on Chestnut St. and all of its contents. Kelly is a member of Christ Church and a volunteer at the Bath Area Food Bank.

PennDOT announces Start to replace two bridges

Submitted by RONALD YOUNG

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) this week announced work is expected to begin March 31 to replace the PA 191 Bridge over Waltz Creek and the PA 191 Bridge over an unnamed tributary to Waltz Creek in Washington Township, Northampton County.

73rd Year, Issue No. 13

USPS 248-700

During construction PA 191 will remain open to all traffic except trucks, and the road will be reduced to a single lane with alternating traffic being controlled by temporary traffic signals. The posted detour for truck traffic will utilize PA 512 and PA 33. The project is scheduled to be completed in December 2015. All schedules are subject to change. Bi-State Construction, Inc. of Easton, Pa. is the general contractor on the $1.58 million project. The PA 191 Bridge over Waltz Creek is a steel I-beam bridge constructed in 1932.

School Board lauds winners in Skills USA and video contest


Four presentations were made on Monday night at a meeting of the Northampton Area School Board. The first was a report on results of the Series A and B Bond sales by Mrs. Jamie Doyle. She had reported earlier than the bond market has been favorable. The second was a series of Power Point slides on the well-rounded programs that are offered and which equal success for the students once they graduate from Northampton Community College. That was by Dr. Mark Erickson. There are presently 744 students at NCC. The slides showed some of the students who come from the Northampton Area School District, three of whom are Presidential Ambassadors. The bottom line of his presentation was the 2014-15 budget, with NASD’s share increasing by 1.5% or $727,675 in the $57,010,833 budget.. The third presentation was by two Skills USA District 11 competition winners, led by Ms. Kimberly Levin. Paige

Denton took third place in advertising design. Michael Henne won a first place award in Quiz Bowl. After the two students explained briefly what they had done, both were congratulated and received a handshake from all the directors. Ms. Levin said, “I’m really proud of the work

the students did.” The same plaudits went to a group of Middle School 2014 Lehigh Valley Skill Up Partnership students in the “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing” video contest. All were winners in the group Continued on page 15

Pennsylvanians urged To license their dogs Submitted by OWEN McEVOY

Governor Tom Corbett today urged Pennsylvanians to license their dogs, saying a dog license is the best way to ensure lost dogs have a happy homecoming. “Warmer temperatures bring opportunities for both people and dogs to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, but far too often dogs get away from their families and get lost,” said Governor Corbett. “A dog license is not just the law, it’s also one of the best ways to help get your lost dog home safely.” Corbett proclaimed March as “Dog License Awareness Month,” in Pennsylvania. State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog. “Dog wardens across the state will be out in full force in the coming months ensuring all Pennsylvanians are following the laws,” said Agriculture Secretary George Greig. “Dog licenses are easy to purchase

The Van Whys live in Hanover Township. The statewide cleanup is an annual effort sponsored by PennDOT, DEP, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and other partners through which interested individuals and groups can create cleanup events. Groups involved in PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program, which involves volunteers cleaning roadsides year round, are also encouraged to participate in the cleanup. “These cleanup programs play a huge role in keeping Pennsylvania beautiful through cleaner roadsides and communities,” said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. “It’s my hope that more individuals get involved and join the thousands of dedicated volunteers who participate in these efforts year after year.” In addition to the statewide cleanup, registered events have access to free disposal at participating landfills during “Pick it Up PA Days” from April 12 to May 5.

Grow UR Biz in 2014 – Shirley Temple By CAROL RITTER

On the good ship Lollipop, it’s a sweet trip to the candy shop, where bon-bon’s play, on the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay. Lemonade stands everywhere, Crackerjack bands fill the air, and there you are, happy landings on a chocolate bar. The legacy of Shirley Temple goes well beyond this famous song, her movies and her service to her country as an ambassador to the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic. Do you know the story of the world renowned non-alcoholic drink, “Shirley Temple?”   We took our granddaughter to lunch for her birthday this weekend and she wanted to order a Shirley Temple. She asked why is the drink called a Shirley Temple?   Some say it happened at the famed Brown Derby Restaurant and others believe a bartender created it at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The exact source of the name is a bit of a mystery, but most stories agree on the reason, which is obvious: the young starlet was out at a restaurant and needed something nonalcoholic to drink. Reportedly, Temple was “whining” over her parents sipping an oldfashioned, so the waitstaff mixed up a tea-total version for her.   The question is, why can you order a Shirley Temple anywhere in the world and everyone knows what it is?  How about that brand?  Why

are some brands completely recognizable and others remain anonymous? Well, first Shirley Temple was world renowned in her day.  According to Steve Tobak, he believes that by satisfying one or more of the following three conditions your brand can remain recognizable: Invention or innovation Viral use or marketing Creating or dominating a category  I would agree.  Back in the 1930’s, when the Shirley Temple was created, it went viral in its own way, most likely by word of mouth. Is your brand spreading like wildfire? Are you using “FREE” social media to promote your brand? Are you dominating in one category or another? Or, are you wishing and hoping your brand will soar? If all this branding has you confused, sit back, relax and have a Shirley Temple. Carol S. Ritter, Motivational Speaker  Results Only Business Coach & Featured Writer 610-442-4545

Healthy Foods You Might Not Be Eating … but Should (NU) - Many of us are looking for fresh ways to lead

healthier lifestyles and eat nutritiously, without having to sacrifice flavor. You may already be eating fruits and veggies, like broccoli and bananas, but here are five nutritional superstars you should be piling on your plate if you aren’t already: 1. Lentils. Lentils may look like the runt of the legume family, but don’t be fooled. These are rich in dietary fiber and are a good source of iron and folate, which collectively help reduce the risk of heart disease, increase your metabolism and improve digestive health. Talk

about big things coming in small packages! 2. Cauliflower. Cauliflower is having its turn in the spotlight this year -- and rightfully so. This cruciferous vegetable is rich in vitamin C, fiber and potassium. Try whipped cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes, or grill slices of it for a new side dish. Tip: If the bitter taste of raw cauliflower turns you off, try steaming or sautéing for milder flavor. 3. Sardines. Sardines may not be the first fish to come to mind, but they are certainly one of the healthiest. This petite treat is a lean source of protein, rich in Omega-3s, vitamin B12 and vitamin D, making them a heart-healthy snack worth trying. StarKist’s new Gourmet Selects skinless, boneless sardine fillets

come packed in delicious gourmet sauces. They are great for a snack right out of the can or a perfect addition to any culinary creation. 4. Pomegranate. Pomegranates have often taken a backseat to other fruits, but these delicious gems pack arguably a bigger nutritional punch than some of the traditional favorites. Not only are the seeds and juice jam-packed with antioxidants, but they are also high in vitamin C and potassium, and the seeds are a great source of fiber. Tip: Avoid the mess by deseeding with the pomegranate submerged in water. By Laura Ali, MS, RDN, LDN Registered Dietitian for StarKist For NewsUSA

Farmers market to get Boost with casino money By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News The Northampton Farmers Market, located in downtown Northampton, is getting a financial boost, it was revealed at the semi-monthly meeting of Northampton Borough Council. A grant of $65,000 will be coming from Monroe County funds generated at Mt. Airy Casino in Paradise Township through the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act’s local share account. That’s good news for Victor Rodite, a leading promoter of the market on Main Street, and the vendors who participate, as well as the public who will be shopping there for fresh fruits and vegetables when it opens this

spring and summer in its second year. Actions Taken • At a Council meeting on March 6, there was a discussion about a huge amount of cats in the borough, strays and those kept in homes. A woman also noted her credentials, with the thought that the animal shelter could be re-opened to take care of some of those cats and other animals. But on Thursday, Council turned down the idea of having a full-time shelter, and instead keeping the former building just as it is for a holding pen. • St. Paul’s U.C.C. Church was granted permission to barricade 19th St. from Ridge Alley to Lincoln Ave. on Sunday, April 13 from 12 Noon to 3 p.m. The

Mayor Thomas Reenock will attend. Paul Connolly, Jr. of Bath will be honored that morning for his community efforts. • Council reversed a decision last meeting of seeking a transportation grant for a bikeway along Heritage Trail, fearing it would cost too much to make changes to the park and/or roadway, with the borough putting in matching funds. Instead, there will be a project of extending the walkway on Lerchenmiller Drive to Main St., calling it a “safe route to schools” in repaving a part of Lerchenmiller Drive.

State Representative Joe Emrick announced on Thursday that a Monroe County casino grant of $500,000 will go toward a traffic light at an intersection in Upper Nazareth Township that is near the Nazareth Area Middle School. Former Supervisor Jim Augustine had written the application for the grant that comes from revenue received in gambling at the Mt. Airy Casino, thanks to an act of the Pa. Legislature. The traffic signal at the intersection of East Lawn Rd. (Rt. 191) & Friedenstahl Ave. is expected to cost between $750,000 and $1.1 million, but the township has $80,000 bud-

News Sermonette Rev. Robert Hampton

Living By the Gold Standard Though Biblical literacy is going the way of the dinosaur, I suspect there is one excerpt from its pages that most people, even the non-religionist can near quote. Familiarly dubbed the Golden Rule, it reads like this: “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” It’s a call to service, extending oneself selflessly to the service of another. Jesus modeled for us this exemplary way to live, and we’re commanded to follow His lead. But to accentuate its value, for one brief, heretical moment, let’s strip Jesus of His essential Deity and consequent sinless character. Let’s then replay how three Jesus-encounters may have unfolded had He not fleshed out the Golden Rule. During the first encounter, Jesus stunned a woman with a socially checkered past and present when He asked her for a drink from the town well. Had Jesus failed to put the Golden Rule into practice, He may have said, “Hey Slut, get me drink.” During the second encounter, Jesus crossed paths with a woman caught in the very act of adultery while her judges and jury stood poised to host a rock party in her dishonor. To her He could have castigated, “Hey Whore, you’re gettin’ what you deserve. Let Me cast the first stone! “ During the third encounter, Jesus ran into His Kiss of Death. Judas sold his soul to the religious elite and betrayed Jesus in that now-infamous Gethsemane Garden. Jesus could have glared into Judas’ weasel eyes and decried his action saying, “After all I’ve done for you, a kiss? Go to H---.” But Jesus is God and the very personification of the Golden Rule. He spilled over with a bottomless well of mercy. So to the sequential polygamist-plus one whom she ne’er wed, He turned the chalice on her and offered to quench her eternal thirst from His spiritual well. To the promiscuous vamp He offered complete forgiveness and total transformation. To His former compatriot turned traitor, just hours before his fateful choice of treachery, Jesus offered to wash his soul along with his feet. So Jesus is the Savior of all those of us who trust in His death and resurrection. No longer must we fear the eternal penalty for our sin. But He is also our Standard for living by the Golden Rule, but the Golden Rule stepped up a notch. So if the Golden Rule says, “Do to others as you would like they to do to you,” then the Platinum Rule says, “Do to others as Jesus has done to you.” Once we strove to live by the Gold Standard, but how much more of a blessing to others when we live by the Platinum Standard!
