The Art Den joins downtown Nazareth

By HOME NEWS STAFF A new business has joined downtown Nazareth- The Art Den, an art studio offering a broad variety of creative classes for both children and adults. The Art Den received a warm welcoming from the community at its grand opening on May 5 with a ribbon cutting ceremony, joined by State Representatives Marcia Hahn and Joe Emrick. Free arts and crafts were available for children along with face painting, raffles and giveaways.

Looking by Back Ed Pany Early Schools

(Originally published in 2006) My friend and fellow historian ogy. I still rely on my 1956 WebLarry Oberly wrote a very inter- ster’s Dictionary. esting booklet on the schools of At one time, Allen Township Allen Township.

Northampton County, Hanover, Larry is much more advanced Lehigh County, Boroughs of than this so called writer. He has Catasauqua, Northampton and the latest in computer technol- North Catasauqua.

Our state’s founder, William Penn, had an early vision of education, saying, “All persons in this province and territories having children shall cause such to be instructed in reading and writing of which every county court will take care; girls and boys should receive an education such as might enable them to successfully meet the duties of life.” Penn’s vision for universal education took a back seat to the desire for religious freedom. Most schools between 1701-1750 were denominational schools, with the church and schoolhouse setting side by side. The schoolmaster was paid by the congregation, which was too poor to pay the minister. Continued on page 13

Northampton Borough Council members express Safety concerns during Rental ordinance hearing By KERI LINDENMUTH The Northampton Borough Council held a public hearing about its proposed rental inspection ordinance on May 2. Borough residents, many of them landlords, came out to voice their concerns about the ordinance. Many of them expressed worry over the costs it would inflict upon them. However, several councilmembers countered their financial concerns with safety concerns. Councilman Robert McHale, a member of the rental inspection ordinance committee, says he believes the committee took all of the landlords’ concerns into account and lowered registration and inspection fees as a result. Any semblance of rental inspection regulation has been absent from the borough since 1978. The ordinance, which will require apartments to be inspected every three years, McHale said, is a way to ensure apartments are kept in safe and livable conditions, with windows that open and close, roofs that do not leak, outlets that are covered, and fire alarms that work. “These are basic needs every one of us has in our own homes,” said McHale. “The function of the whole ordinance is to guarantee safety for the tenant, the landlord, and the borough,” said Councilman Anthony Lopsonzski Sr. “[It] guarantees that their [landlords’] property will not be destroyed and that they [tenants] have a safe place to live.” Councilwoman Judy Kutlzer, who works with and counsels

women in the community, has heard stories of unsafe living conditions firsthand, from no heat in apartments to sewage leaking into apartment basements. Many of the women she works with expressed fear of speaking up, which could result in their rent being increased. “When you are a single mom trying to raise your family, you cannot have your rent increased,” she said. “Unfortunately, government has to intervene when there are issues of safety that have to be addressed,” she added. “A human being should be able to lay down at night and not worry about electrical issues, plumbing issues, and whether their windows open and close.” However, several landlords in attendance said they believe they are being punished for the actions of a few “bad landlords.” Attorney Alan Troutman spoke on behalf of landlord Derek Richmond. “This is an ordinance [that is] vastly overreaching,” he said. He said it will increase costs for landlords, create time delays, and impact their ability to “support themselves.” Landlord Joan Marinkovits agreed. An owner of a two-unit Continued on page 15

Pastor’s Comments

we have been together in school ever since first grade? I’ve been wanting to ask you a question for years. You are always the top of every class—team captain—tops in grades. Where do you get that dedication year in and year out?” Jim answered, “I’ve never told this to anyone but when I was six my Dad sat me down and told me this story: He said, “Son, your Mother and I were married 15 years and could not have children--the doctor said it was impossible. We began to pray in family devotions, ‘God if you give us just one boy, we will never ask for another.’ We prayed that way for three months every night. One day we discovered you were coming. For nine months we planned for your birth. When the time came, after several hours at the hospital, the doctors called me aside and told me he could only save one life or the other—mother or baby. He told me to talk to your mother and give him the decision. When I walked into her room she told me not to argue saying, ‘I’ve decided to give my life for this child.’ I cried and asked, ‘How can you make that decision—I’ll put you first before anything.’ But she said, ‘Haven’t we been praying for months for just one boy—we didn’t know it would take my life for that one!’ The last thing she told me was, ‘I want you to tell him for me that I want him to stand as the greatest boy in all the world! I want people to be able to say, ‘There goes the boy for whom his mother gave her life!’” Reader, Jesus Christ gave His life for you! He wants you to stand as His representative in this evil world—to “walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work” (Colossians 1:10). He wants others to be able to say, “There goes the one for whom Jesus gave His life!”

Mayor Reenock presented Piescienski with a plaque and described him as a “role model of leadership [and] volunteering,” and said that he has earned the respect of the community through his loyalty and commitment. His spirit of giving, Mayor Reenock said, has “enhanced the lives of others.” “Heaven forbid if I ever have a fire at my place, I would be honored to have you be the first one through my door,” Councilman Tony Pristash told Piescienski.

PennDOT Talks Route 248 bridge Construction In Moore Twp. By KERI LINDENMUTH PennDOT representatives appeared before the Moore Township Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, May 1 to talk about upcoming bridge construction on Route 248. Construction on two separate bridges over the Hokendauqua Creek in western Moore Township will commence in Spring 2019 and require detours for both trucks and cars. Due to stream restrictions that are intended to protect creek life, all construction will be completed by fall 2019. The two bridges in question were inspected by PennDOT and determined to be in poor condition. Bryan Clark, a consultant for PennDOT, explained that both bridges will feature two

eleven-foot lanes and eight-foot shoulders. Minor roadway construction will also take place. Cars will be detoured using all state roads, consisting of Allen Drive, Kreidersville Road, Howertown Road, and Old Carriage Road. This detour will be roughly 5.9 miles long. Meanwhile, trucks will be picked up in Bath and detoured on Routes 978 and 946, a detour that will be 13 miles. Also during Moore Township’s Board of Supervisors meeting, supervisors motioned to close the First Regional Compost Authority on Sundays until further notice so staff can keep up with the influx of materials dropped off. As Supervisor Richard Gable, who made the motion said, the compost authority is currently “inundated.”

Memories that linger sweet Of her loving tend, And ever at her table’s seat I became a boy again.

Bath Drug Submitted by GLORIA KOCH On April 20, Mountain View Wesleyan Church donated another 12 mats to homeless vets through Frank Homme, a volunteer for the Eastern Section of the American Legion. It’s that time of year when the extra shelters that open for the winter months close until next winter. These mats will hopefully give them some comfort and help keep them dry. Many thanks to all those faithful people who make this possible by prepping, crouching and donating your colored grocery bags to Lattermans Deli & Corner Store or to the MVW Church (1001 Deemer Road, Bath) and Benders Church (975 Benders Church Road Pen Argyl) who meet every other Monday from 12:30 until 3:30 p.m. MVW Church is changing the day to the second and fourth

Sermonette God’s Helper

by FRANK HOMME This month we celebrate Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, both wonderful days. Mothers train their children and Memorial Day remembers the fallen. It all started with our wonderful mothers. One young lady said to a girl, “Your mother made us memories 23rd Psalm.” She was a great teacher and very kind, but strict. Her former student concluded, “She was an influence in my Christian walk later in life, and I never forgot the 23rd Psalm.” If we were to name the greatest and most influential people, we may think of presidents or leaders of industry, business banking or education, mostly because their decisions shape the world. But who shaped them? Perhaps one of the most influential people in anyone’s life is their mother. When women are in the process of raising small children, changing diapers, wiping noses and setting squabbles, it may not seem like important work. However, God has given mothers the responsibility of shaping those young lives and teaching the importance of knowing and loving Him. One girl writes: though we have no memory of our birth, it is through pain that we are brought into the world. We all rejoice for the gift of our mothers. Without their labor for their children, none of us would be here. Our Lord Jesus dwelled in His mother’s womb. She was joined with all the company of Heaven rejoicing that this baby was born into the world. In Jesus a new labor had begun, which was perfected in His sorrowful death. Here on the Holy cross, sin is forgiven. Here Jesus’s bloody dying, Mary was restored to her son for all eternity. In Christ, all mothers are reconciled to their children, a relationship restored by forgiveness. Thank you Jesus for mothers. We go to another mother- Susanna Wesley. Susanna didn’t have a high-ranking title at a large company, but she raised 19 children, including two sons, John and Charles Welsey, who were the founders of Methodism. The busy mother committed herself to teach the children, and they learned and loved and trusted God. Like my mom (who had 13 children), we went to church and she taught us things I’m sure most of you were taught by your mom. We thank Jesus, for our mother, a seed of God’s love sown today. Perhaps the greatest impact you have on your children is your example. When they see you mudding godly charter or trusting the Lord in the midst of trials, they will want to know and love God as you do. This is the best way you can equip the next generation.

I read a story about a group of Mormons. These young men volunteered to become soldiers to protect their families from an enemy that sought to enslave them. In their first battle, these young men demonstrated great heroism and courage in the face of what would have been a complete route to a resounding success. Their leader, Helaman, indicated that all 200 men were wounded and many of them fainted from their wounds, yet all 200 miraculously survived the battle, while many of the older and more experienced troops in their same Army did not. (See Alma Chapter 56 in the Book of Mormon.) When Helaman asked them why they had survived, they attributed it to their faith in God’s power to preserve them; the faith they learned from their mothers. The source of their courage and faith is described in Alma 56:47-48.

Early Schools

Continued from page 1

These early schools stressed reading the Bible and devotional books. Texts focused on religion.

May 10-16, 2018 13

These denominational teachers displayed a deep love for children and the belief that kindness rather than harshness should be the classroom credo. Following the revolution, there was a transition from denominational schools to subscription or pay schools, staffed by internet teachers who were independent of the church. Irregular attendance was common, as the students were needed more on the farm than in the classroom. The tuition was a voluntary contribution based on a family’s ability to pay. In 1785 the best-known school, perhaps in all of Pennsylvania, was the Allen Township Academy. A classical school, it was headed by Robert Andrews, a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. He would later be replaced by one of his bestknown students, George Wolf. A classical curriculum went beyond the three R’s of teaching, law, economics, agriculture, mathematics, Latin, public speaking and science.

the tenants. “I am not paying for [them],” she said. Two councilmembers echoed the landlords’ concerns. Councilman Tony Pristash, like Marinkovits, said costs will be passed on to tenants. Meanwhile, Councilman Ed Pany said the ordinance is adding a “layer of bureaucracy” to the borough. Councilman Lopsonzski Sr. countered complaints of fees being too high. The ordinance will cost landlords of one to three apartment units 26 cents per week, of four to eight units 24 cents per week, nine to fifteen units 19 cents per week, sixteen to thirty units 16 cents per week, and over thirty units 32 cents per week. “You cannot get a stick of gum at those prices,” he said. “If the property owners do not understand that we are trying to help them…in five years, please do not tell me how cruddy the town is,” he added. Council motioned to table the rental inspection ordinance decision until its May 17 meeting.
