Bath Legion supporting Pa. Wounded Warriors

Submitted by Victoria Zmarzley-Hahn

Bath Legion veterans from Eckley E. Patch Post #470 held their own tournament at Whitetail Golf Course on Veterans Day with all proceeds benefiting the Wounded Warrior project. Galen Wuchter ran a raffle and collected $175.00 that will be sent to the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Division. Jason Glendenmoyer, a

Sons of the American Legion member, said he would shave his head if he received $500.00 in donations, with proceeds benefiting the Pa. Division of Wounded Warriors. The total amount collected was $1,015.00, resulting in Jason having his head shaved by Jason Eberts at the Bath Legion post home on Race Street. Larry Becker is having a Continued on page 5

The 2014 budget for Lehigh Township is being advertised for adoption, and residents will have at least 10 days to inspect it. Two members of the Board of Supervisors, Cynthia Miller and Sandra Hopkins, had numerous questions about the budget figures at their meeting last Tuesday, which were answered by Township Manager Alice Rehrig to their satisfaction. Supervisors Chairman Darryl Snover and Keith Hantz had their questions answered at the October 29 meeting and made no further comments

on Tuesday. The discussion last meeting took up 12 pages of the supervisors’ report. The $3,971,794 budget calls for no tax increase and it will remain at 15.2 mills for property owners. Slab Repairs Engineer Phil Malitsch reported on the concrete pavement along Washington Drive that had settled substantially. It is an existing concrete slab about 75 ft. long and has a vertical separation of approximately two inches, which has created a safety concern. Malitsch said reinforced concrete or blacktop could be used, but that the steel bars

in concrete would be more effective. There will be more discussion with Frank Zamadics of the road crew. Three contractors were sent letters about making repairs, and the prices ranged from $16,000 to $19,000, which Malitsch thought were too high. BMX Bike Trail Once again the BMX bike trail fashioned by township youths at Indian Trail Park in Pennsville came up for discussion from the audience, this time about insurance coverage. An insurance adjuster visited the site and made recommendations for betContinued on page 9

Allen board enacts ordinances, names Trash collector, hears 2014 budget By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News

Two ordinances were approved, a collector of municipal waste and recyclables was named, and the 2014 general fund budget was reviewed for adoption in December as the Allen Township Board of Supervisors met on Thursday night. Township Manager Ilene Eckhart reviewed the figures contained in the 2014 budget. While there are some changes, the budget will total $1,289,895 and there will be no increase in real estate taxes. They remain at five mills. The supervisors voted to advertise the budget available for public inspection for a period of 20 days from Thursday’s date of Nov. 14. Ordinances Okayed Two ordinances were approved. The first applies to wood-fired boilers and what can and cannot be burned.

After the explanation was given at a public hearing there was no public comment and the ordinance was adopted. The second ordinance is an amendment to the zoning ordinance on plantings, lot coverage, forests, building height and fences. It was recommended for approval by the Planning Commission, and the board adopted it at the hearing after a summary of the ordinance was given by solicitor Lincoln Treadwell. The changes noted are from 8 to 10 ft., no fence or wall in a sight triangle, lot coverage to a maximum, forests are woodlands under a conservation area, no more than 35 ft. in height of a building unless written approval is given by the airport authority. Here again there was no comment from the audience. The changes will be advertised. New Trash Collector J. P. Mascaro & Son is the

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip ‘Twas the week before Thanksgiving, and all through the house, Elmira has been scurrying about, preparing for the family gathering to come. I’m just thinking of chowing down on a big meal of turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings. Next Thursday is the big day. . . . The weather has been kinda November like, warm at times and cold at times, so that’s good and we’ll take it. Folks in Illinois really took a beating, though, when tornadoes hit on Sunday. Nothing left of some neighborhoods, and seven people were killed. I sure hope we never get any destruction like that, but Nature is rough at times, and you never know. The Philippines were hard hit, too, with a typhoon, and there again everything was flattened and thousands of lives were lost. I hope the Red Cross and other relief agencies will be helping them out. . . . Brenda Driban, from the Brenda & Jerry TV show on RCN was down at the laundromat in town the other day. She told of two sisters who auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” this past Saturday, one who writes her own songs and other who plays piano and sings. Brenda has also played piano whenever the Phillies have their pre-season caravan visits. . . .Enjoyed that Q&A column Alice W. did with Mayor-Elect “Fi” Mirabito last week. . . .I’ll

hafta get a copy of Tracy Berger-Carmen’s book on the old Nazareth Speedway. It seems a shame that the track is still sitting there and no more racing. But I guess that’s progress. . . . I hear Doc Marino is having another collection of food for the local food bank. It’s sure needed from what I hear, so many families not knowing where their next meal is coming from. The food bank does a whale of a job helping ‘em out! . . . . Didn’t hear if the Lutheran church is gonna have another Thanksgiving dinner like they usually do. Reckon we need to call Anna Kish and find out. . . . Chestnut Street sidewalk project is moving right along. Good weather is on their side. . . . Eagles beat those Washington Redskins, but it got kinda scary at the end. RG-III tossed one pass after the other, and finally an interception stopped him in his tracks. Now the Eagles can rest a week, and enjoy first place, until they take on those Arizona Cardinals. . . .I read that the old-time stars from the Northampton Konkrete Kids will be introduced at the NorthamptonCatty game on Thanksgiving Day over at Muhlenberg College. Northampton had some great teams a while back. . . . They say that gas prices are going down because of supply and demand. I thought they were down a week or so

To begin my series on BIG (Bath Is Great), it’s only fitting to tell about our local government. In our borough we have a Mayor, seven Council members, a Borough Manager, legal representation, engineering firm, two secretaries, three men on maintenance, and several boards, includ-

ing but not limited to Zoning, Property Maintenance, and Planning Commission. Council is the spearhead of our ordinances and resolutions. They have the only voting power, with the exception of a tie vote (if one member is absent), when the Mayor is allowed to vote and break the tie.Being a member is not an easy task. With very minimal monetary compensation they are required to uphold the law, which sometimes promotes an adverse effect to their own wishes. That’s the reason they all proclaim “the oath of office” when elected. Our Borough Council presently consists of four men and three women. Bob Fields is President of Council and is retired from St. Luke’s Hospital, where he was AudioVisual Coordinator; he is also a former Fire Chief and Assistant Police Chief in the borough. . . .Mark Saginario is Vice President of Council and is a manager at Martin Guitar. . . .Mike Reph is President Pro Tem of Council and is an employee of Martin Guitar. He and his wife

What it means To be a scout

Submitted by Doreen Davidson We of Cub Pack 33 Webelos believe it’s an honor to be Scouts because we get to learn new things. One project we accomplished was making our own ladderball sets. We also worked hard making floats for the Bath parade. Being a Scout is cool because you are learning and at the same time having fun.

CRPD Officer Mike Kovach stopped by Sacred Heart School last week to read to the students in the kindergarten and first grade classes. – Contributed photo When you’re a Scout you go on a lot of fun adventures. Some trips we go on are summer camp, cardboard box derby, camping with friends, and Webelos Winter Event. To give you an idea, we’ve had a blast being archers, swimmers, hikers, racers, builders, actors and so much more! Do you know that we enjoy Scouting because we volunteer

and help our community? We do this by food drives, cleaning parks, planting trees, fixing gardens, Christmas caroling and delivering cheerful holiday cards. These are a few of our favorites, and we’re always trying to do more. Thank you for reading our vision of what Scouting means to us. PA003267

Grow UR Biz in 2013 – Excuses


I follow Seth Godin, best selling author, he says that the attributes many of us value in co-workers, bosses, employees, friends and vendors are honesty, curiosity, flexibility, thoughtfulness, generosity, fun, commitment, respectful, organized, interested, creative, likable, positive, proactive and, yes, even punctual. He goes on to say that if you have these attributes, you can go from ordinary to a super star. So I was thinking that I want the clients I work with to be all of those, don’t you?  But first, I think we need to look into the obvious.  Do you choose to be honest or were you born honest?  Do you choose to be flexible or were you born with flexibility? Do you choose to be on time or did you arrive on time the day you were born so you now can be punctual forever?  Is it possible to be all of these or do we need to pick the easy ones and then work on the rest?   Which brings me to the all time favorite reason why some people just can’t measure up.  EXCUSES!  The traffic was bad, my alarm didn’t go off, I got a phone call, the sun was in my eyes, I ran out of gas, my car wouldn’t start,

three or four times since the drive started, Mrs. Marino said. The drive will end this Thursday, Nov. 21, so that families will have more for their Thanksgiving meal. The cart was lent to the Marino’s by Ahart’s Market especially for this fall food drive. Dr. Marino expressed thanks to all his patients who have contributed, and also to Easton One BNI, a group that has also given food for the drive. Being in a service-oriented field, Dr. Marino said he just wanted to be involved in the community and help people who are struggling. “It’s very gratifying to help those less fortunate,” he said, “Our way of giving back.” Over the years, he has served on the Nazareth School Board and Lions, and in his church, Calvary Chapel, a new congregation between Industrial Drive and Airport Road that has a thrift store. The youth group at the church helps stock and distribute foods at the Bath Area Food Bank. Jeannie Judd Wagner of the food bank said she appreciates the support the Marino’s are giving them, and also thanks the people who are providing the much-needed food for families in these difficult times. It will help bring

I forgot, and on and on and on. I think the moral of the story is if you expect your clients to have those attributes you may want to set the example yourself for your staff, your clients, your volunteers, and your future clients.   We all know there’s nothing like a great reputation to grow ur biz.  Here’s what it takes... Honest - tell the truth, Curiosity - take time to learn, Flexibility - come to the table wiling to change, Thoughtfulness - think of others first, Generosity - show your charitable side, Fun - just do it, Commitment - be loyal, Respectful - earn it and give it, Organized - clean up, Interested - care, Creative - share ideas, Likable - you can’t fake that, Positive - drop the negatives, Proactive - take the lead, Punctual, SHOW UP - ON TIME! I believe these attributes are a result of our upbringing, our exposure to others who have them and the desire to aspire to be not just your ordinary business but a business filled with super stars.  NO EXCUSES!

Northampton named a Three-Star PASR Chapter

Submitted by Ruby Ifkowitz On October 8, at the 51st PASR Convention held in Lancaster, the Northampton Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees was recognized for the exceptionally broad array of services that its members provide to others living in their communities. During the past year, the members of Northampton Chapter raised and contributed monies to help fund special projects in their public schools and engaged in additional projects, as volunteers, to serve the youth in their communities. The chapter members also increased their giving of monies to assist school retirees who are hospitalized, homebound, or confined in assisted living facilities, and they devoted much of their time engaged in efforts to combat and alleviate hunger in their communities. Additionally, the school retiree volunteers in Northampton County received top honors for their work in providing a broad array of social opportunities for members and for expanding and improving the information that they regularly provide to both members and nonmembers of the association. The association was pleased to note that no other local organization received a greater number of awards this year, enabling Northampton members to claim the distinction of being a “three-star chapter”— only one of seven statewide. In addition, of PASR’s 76 chapters around the country, only two chapters achieved two-star status, and only 11 chapters attained one-star recognition. PASR’s Executive Director Richard C. Rowland commended Northampton Chapter for its accomplishments: “Our organiza-

tion’s mission, to serve others in need and help one another enjoy retirement, is clearly in your hearts. You are certainly benefiting your communities with all that you are doing to serve the needs of public education employees, the youth, the infirmed, and the hungry. We all know that in doing these great things, you

are helping each other better enjoy the retirements you earned from your public school service.” For more information about Northampton Chapter and the many services this exceptional chapter provides, please contact Chapter President Ruby A. Ifkowitz at or at (610) 767-1494.

as they can on Sunday. Thus most games will still continue to be played on Sunday. There is no reason, however, that one game can’t be played several days in the week, perhaps four days--Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Even five days is a choice if the number of games in the season is increased. The teams playing a weekday game have an advantage-they being the only game they will attract far more TV viewers than if other games were being played the same day.

FOOTBALL✷ ✷ ✷ The arrival of Thursday night NFL football was welcome and long awaited by fans. The idea of practically all teams playing on Sunday is outdated. The problem has been that as many fans often can’t come to a game on a weekday

Whitetail Deer Classic Committee Working On 11th Annual Event The Whitetail Deer Classic committee will meet this Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Stockertown Rod & Gun Club as they prepare for the 11th annual fund-raising banquet. It will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2014 at the Northampton Memorial Community Center., More than 350 tickets at $100.00 each have already been sold. This year there is a limit of 525, as the committee wants the people attending to have a little more seating room. It was 600 last year, when all the tickets were sold. In addition to more than 60 rifles in the main drawing, there will also be drawings for two ATV’s, and those tickets are almost sold out already, too. The annual banquet raises money for the annual Youth Field Day held in June at Stockertown Rod & Gun Club, the annual Northampton County Junior Conservation School based at the 4-H Center in July, and the Northampton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, which awards $500.00 grants to clubs or organizations that have conservation or youthoriented projects. Over the past 10 years, the banquet has raised more than $1-million, thanks to the sportsmen and women of the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

Hands that Tell a Story Submitted by Kristy Muenz

Everyone has a story to tell. Stories including what their life was like years ago, hardships they had to overcome, wars that affected their family, the day they met the love of their life, or the day they became a parent. Traditions of Hanover Independent Living residents are bridging the generation gap and telling stories to Liberty High School students for them to recreate these memories through photographs in a new art project. Twenty residents from Traditions went to Liberty High School on Monday to work with students on a new art 767-2977 by 9:30 a.m Hours 9 a.m.– 2 p.m. Nazareth Senior Center October, 2013 Director: Sue Gehris Call 610-759-8255 for meal reservations

project, “Hands that Tell a Story.” Students are building a relationship with the residents by creating photographs of seniors’ hands and recording their life stories to include with the photographs. The students were paired with a senior to work with them in the photo studio, where they could take photographs of their senior’s hands. They worked with the senior to arrange how they want their hands set up for various photos. Seniors discussed an event or special memory that took place at some point in their life and the students recorded the story to correlate with the photographs. Seniors talked about events such as the Great Depression, or their daily life when they were 12 years old and how the world has changed since then. From Monday-Friday November 18-22, the students have been working on de-

ter safety, and a professional designer of tracks also came by. One resident at Tuesday’s meeting was worried about 12-14-year-olds using the trail and getting hurt. Supervisor Hantz said the township is moving forward with the process and that holes that were dug have been filled in. A sign will be posted, “Ride At Your Own Risk,” but that doesn’t stop the township from being sued if people are hurt, Solicitor David Backenstoe said, if they don’t do anything to protect themselves. Another resident said the situation doesn’t sit well with him because the youths put something up on what wasn’t their property. He feels that the township is sticking their neck out, although he isn’t against the project. “I hope the kids police what they have,” he said. Stover said the township is trying to preserve something that is in the park. “We’re doing our best to protect the residents of the township,” he said. Other Matters • Hantz reported a complaint from a property owner about cornhusks falling on his land during a farmer’s harvest. He wondered whose responsibility it is to do the clean-up. Stover said realtors should tell new property owners they are in an agricultural area. “This isn’t New York City.” • A resolution was ap-

proved accepting the Ziegenfuss property as an agriculture security area. • An additional deposit of $15,200 was made into the fire truck fund. • Police Chief Scott Fogel had a report. (See police blotter.)

On Thursday, approval was given, subject to a legtter from Hanover Engineering. • A request for security reduction from Willow Ridge was approved at $1,920 now that sidewalks are in. • Ms. Eckhart said the Local Economic Revitalization Tax will be discussed at a December meeting. • The October fire report of Allen Township Fire Co. #1 was as follows: total alarm hours, 120; total training hours, 30; total alarms, 24 (assist ambulance station, 2; auto accidents, 5; auto accidents with rescue, 2; automatic fire alarms, 3; brush fire, 1; dwelling fires, 4; plane crash, 1; structure fires, 3; traffic control, 1; water flow, 1).

10 THE HOME NEWS November 21-27, 2013


Conditional use hearing cancelled; Crowd too large in Lower Nazareth By BILL HALBFOERSTER The Home News A conditional use hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Nov.13 in Lower Nazareth Township was abruptly cancelled when the audience overflowed the meeting room. Representatives of the proposed warehouse/distribution facility of International Development International (IDI), along with their engineer and attorney, came to the meeting prepared to testify in their behalf for the proposed use. The stenographer had her equipment all set up and ready to go. But as the meeting room continued to fill up, and spill outside to the porch of the municipal building, Supervisors Vice Chairman James Pennington called Atty. Blake Marles to a back room. When they emerged, Pennington told everyone that the hearing would be cancelled due to inadequate seating and room to proceed. He said the supervisors will seek another venue with enough seating for everyone. When asked the date, Penning-

ton said it will be announced, but it won’t be at their next meeting on Dec. 11. Just like that, the room emptied, and the board went on with other business that took them less than 15 minutes. IDI’s proposed location is between Hecktown and Newburg Roads and is zoned light industrial campus. Residents of Lower Nazareth and Palmer Township apparently came to the meeting prepared to oppose the proposed facility, a 822,000 square foot warehouse with 277 bays, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The residents’ concerns were about lighting, noise, and air and traffic problems. One area resident said he fears that the property value of their homes will go down, making the area an undesirable place to live. In a letter to the editor of the Express-Times, Pat McPherson of Palmer Township went on to say: “Haven’t you noticed more tractor-trailers on your main roads, back roads and parked in our shopping complexes? How about the ‘occasional’ ones that end up

in your neighborhood, even with ‘No Trucks Allowed’ signs already posted?” He continued:”The only people who will not be negatively impacted are the property owner who is selling this land, and the developer. The seller will move away and the developer will not have to live with all the negative impacts of this facility. The people who live, work, raise their families and utilize the various businesses in this area will.” Plan Delay Pennington told the audience early on that if they had come to hear more about the proposed Stone Post Meadows development of an office park, a day care center and two and three-story apartment buildings with 498 units it was not scheduled for that night because the developers said they had more work to do in their planning before returning. No Tax Increase • The Supervisors voted to advertise the 2014 general fund budget of $3.6 million. Despite rising costs across the board and a $31,000 increase in the fee charged by the Colonial Regional Police Department, there will be no tax increase, with the rate remaining at 4.15 mills, Township Manager Timm Tenges said. The budget will be adopted at the December 11 meeting.

Nazareth student in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Submitted by Janet Smith

Kate Landes of Nazareth, a member of the 2013 Marching Royal Dukes of James Madison University, will travel to New York City with the marching band to perform in the 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The band is slated to lead the parade when it kicks off at 9 a.m. Landes, a junior majoring in music industry, plays in the band's mellophone section. She graduated from Nazareth High School. The Marching Royal Dukes date to 1972 when JMU established a football program. Membership in the band is

open to all JMU students, regardless of their academic majors. The 2013 band's members represent 47 academic majors, and more than 400 Marching Royal Dukes are non-music majors. The 485-member band is the largest in JMU's history. The band performs at all home football games, travels to select away games and represents JMU at local and regional high-school exhibitions and community events. The JMU band is one of 11 marching bands performing in the parade, and one of only two college bands - the other is the University of Massachusetts Amherst - that were invited to perform. The Marching Royal Dukes were selected from more than 150 applications sent to Macy's Parade's Committee. This is the band's third appearance in the parade. They previously performed in the 2001 and 2008 parades.

Massive Food Drive to Provide Hunger Relief for the Homeless Submitted by Dawn Godshall

volunteers needed to orchestrate such an event, with the help of many churches, local businesses and kind-hearted people who just want to give back to the community. Last year’s Thanks for Giving Food and Supplies Drive packed our warehouse and pantries with 38,655 pounds of food and supplies. With a conservative estimate of $2 per pound, this provided over $77,000 for budget relief. The Mission is working to collect a goal of 40,000 pounds of food and supplies in this year’s drive. People who want to donate to the Thanks for Giving Food and Supplies Drive, but may not make it to a Giant Food store or Walmart on November 22nd and 23rd, are encouraged to take nonperishable food, paper products or cleaning supplies to dozens of official drop-off locations across the Lehigh Valley through the month of November. Locations include National Penn Banks, People First Credit Unions, Stangl Chiropractic in Allentown,

as well as Giant Food and Walmart stores. A list of official drop-off sites and a list of the recommended items for donation are posted at www.

impact, the Commonwealth’s agriculture producers and related businesses require a reliable, trained and legal workforce in order to produce a safe and secure food supply. Our immigration system is a broken relic of the past. We need a workable solution to the barriers that make it difficult for Pennsylvania's farmers to secure a reliable, dependable and consistent workforce. The agricultural industry needs real, meaningful immigration reform that will encapsulate the many shortcomings of our current policy; mainly addressing the antiquated visa system, the temporary worker program, and of course, enforcement of the law. All too often, the current system tragically turns away the very kind of workers who could have an immediate impact on Pennsylvania's agricultural industry, which struggles to find a workforce needed to harvest our food supply. For more than 100 years, PennAg Industries Association has been the leading advocate for the hardworking men and women of Pennsylvania's agricultural industry. And while the industry has changed greatly over the past 100 years, our mission has remained fairly unchanged, and it is for that reason we respectfully urge Pennsylvania's congressional delegation to take the time necessary to come up with a comprehensive, enforceable immigration solution that will work for our country and our Commonwealth's farms.

Masons Continued from page 6 Whenever the young eagles hunt successfully for their prey they usually go back to the same place time and time again. Comparing eagles to peregrin falcons, the group was told, an eagle with its huge wingspan flies like a 747, while the falcons with tremendous speed are like fighter planes diving down on their prey. The Carpenter facility presently has 20 birds to care for. The eagle that was shown on Thursday night had deer meat that day to eat. Only dead carcasses, small or large, are on their diet. This was the second family night that the local Masonic lodge has held. They are including more family and community activities now than in the past, although still maintaining their ritualistic work.

Two D.U.I. Drivers In Bath on Same Day

Colonial Regional Police pulled over two cars in Bath for D.U.I. on Sunday, Nov. 10. At 1:25 a.m., as a CRPD officer was traveling south on Walnut St. near the A-Plus, a Dodge Journey pulled into traffic, cutting the officer off. The vehicle proceeded south on Walnut St. and made a left turn on to E. Main St. nearly losing control of the car in the area of The Fox. The operator continued east on Main St. and did so in the westbound

lane, nearly striking parked vehicles. The officer stopped the car and the operator, Denise R. Manzella, 32, of 1958 Mary St., Bethlehem, was determined to be under the influence of alcohol. Ms. Manzella was arrested and had a BAC of 0.20%. She has been charged with DUI, driving without a license and summary traffic offenses. At 11:35 p.m., a CRPD officer saw a silver Honda Civic traveling west on Main St. in Bath. He noticed that the vehicle’s registration had expired in February 2013. The officer followed the car and saw it head west in the eastbound lane. The officer stopped the car and made contact with the driver, Fadi M. Sayegh, 51, of 186 W. Allen St., Allentown, who was intoxicated. Blood tests showed he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.17%. Sayegh has several prior offenses and also had no license at the time of this incident. He has been

charged with DUI, driving while operating privilege is suspended, driving an unregistered and un-inspected vehicle, and careless driving.
