285th anniversary of Horner Cemetery marked


Jane Horner, wife of a farmer in Craig’s Scotch-Irish Settlement (now known as East Allen Township), died at the hands of Indians in the French and Indian War on October 8, 1763. Horner’s Cemetery, located about 200 yards behind God’s Missionary Church along the BathNorthampton Highway, is where she is buried. This past Saturday afternoon, the 285th anniversary of that cemetery was marked by Peggy Moser with an open house attended by more than 50 people interested in history. Mrs. Moser, a retired secretary, along with many volunteers including her father,

Dallas Spengler, founded the Horner’s Cemetery Historical Society. Attired in a black Colonialstyle dress, she led the group from gravestone to gravestone, where more than 215 bodies are buried. They include that of General Robert Brown, friend of General George Washington, who gave him a chestnut sapling that became the Friendship Tree in East Allen Township. (A part of the tree is in the Gov. Wolf Historical Society museum.) Another grave is that of George Palmer, surveyor for William Penn, and for whom Palmer Township was named. Another grave holds the reContinued on page 17

Wunderler’s Market at 429 E. Main & Broad Sts., Bath, was robbed at gunpoint by a Bath man on Friday afternoon, Oct. 18 at 2:14 p.m. He was identified as Daniel Joseph Preziosi, 24, of 104 E. Main St., Bath, Apt. 14, The Fox, after the store owners, Donald and Joyce Wunderler, picked him out from a police photo lineup. Preziosi was arrested Saturday morning when Colonial Regional Police found the vehicle used in the robbery outside the strip club and Preziosi came to his car around 1:30 a.m. Mrs. Wunderler said Detective Michael Melinsky called her at 4 a.m. Saturday to come to CRPD headquarters and look over 10 mug shots. She said, “That’s him!” when pointing to Preziosi’s picture. The detective had downloaded the store’s videotape of the robbery taking place. It showed him coming into the store, wearing a hoodie. Mrs. Wunderler said he approached the counter, and told her, “Open the drawer. Gimme the money!” as he pointed a handgun at her husband. He took $100 and ran outside the store toward his car parked in a back alley. “It happened so fast, I didn’t know what to think. He was shaking the whole time,” Joyce Wunderler said, “He looked more nervous than me.” Donald Wunderler tried to chase after the robber, but couldn’t catch up. Luckily, a neighbor, Mike Flyte, had seen Preziosi’s car parked in the alley and thought it seemed out of place. He saw the robber running to the car and take off and go through a stop sign. As he backed up, he almost hit Flyte’s truck. The vehicle Flyte saw was a fourdoor beige car, with a hearts sticker on the back and a pink outline around it. The car had

The pilot and a student pilot took off from Lehigh Valley International Airport, heading to Cherry Ridge Airport near Honesdale, Pa. They were not injured and the plane can be saved, but needs a new motor.

Letters from our Readers -

Grown-ups Should Inspire Youngsters, Not Threaten Them To the Editor: In the past few days, the saddest things have come to light in regard to our children and their extracurricular activities (specifically a local youth football organization). These activities are meant for our children to have fun, to grow and learn the meaning of both teamwork and commitment, as well as at times coping with the realization that they will not always be a winner. This isn’t just about the game of football, it is about doing the best you can and having fun. What bothers us about this

is that grown men have allowed their over active testosterone levels along with swollen egos to overshadow the true meaning of little league football. Safety should be the number one concern of coaches and staff. Our youth need to learn from examples set by these “mentors” and right now all we see are bad examples. If a parent questions the safety conditions their child has during participation, is it fair to remove that child from his peer group that is supposed to be fun and build character? We completely comprehend the logic of rules, regulations and bylaws of organizations; it is a part of our life in nearly every daily facet. It is, however, a travesty when a manipulation of these rules is initiated in order for parties associated with the organization to persist to maintain what

they feel is the need for ultimate domination of authority. Threats and tyranny are not what this league is supposed to be about. The volunteers and staff associated with a football league on all levels should be concerned with guidance and enlightenment of the fundamentals of the game as well as the life lessons associated with teamwork, pride in trying your best (Black, Gold, and White Pride!), and being part of a team that knows the importance of being safe. With all of this coaching, supporting and nurturing should be the safety of all those involved. If you are not willing to be part of the safety, you then turn into part of the danger of every player, every cheerleader and every family member that is there to cheer them on and support them. For the sake of not only the HEALTH and WELL BEING

of every child involved, please put your self-admiration on the shelf and show these kids how a grown-up should really act. Give them inspiration to some day volunteer their time to show a child the real enjoyment in a sport that is safe, fun and illuminating to their lives! Sincerely, Concerned Parents

OpinionHH Affordable Care Act Keep Calm and Carry On By John Crabtree,

Center for Rural Affairs

There has been much ado about the early failings of the federal health insurance marketplace, or exchanges. The marketplace was to launch on October 1, 2013. And it did, sort of… The online portal did not work properly and then a hue and cry went up from opponents of the Affordable Care Act. In all the chaos, however, one overarching point was lost. Tens of millions of Americans are looking forward to an opportunity to find access to more affordable healthcare for themselves and their families through the health insurance marketplaces. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services must fix the problems in the federal exchange immediately. It is simply unacceptable for this system not to work properly, there are too many working families, especially here in rural and small town America, counting on a working exchange for access to affordable health insurance. At the same time, we urge everyone to stay calm and stay the course, there will be plenty of time for the exchanges to be fixed and for individuals to enroll through the online insurance marketplaces before the end of this enrollment period, which runs through the end of March. At the Center for Rural Affairs, we’re working tirelessly to make information available to those who are looking to the exchanges for access to affordable health insurance. Give us a call (402-687-2100) or check out our resources on the web at http://www.cfra. org/rural-health, we look forward to hearing from you.

It is important to build character. And, sometimes, it is important to rebuild.

Bat Chat at Jacobsburg

Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip There was lots of excitement in the old berg last Friday, when Donald and Joyce Wunderler’s Market was robbed. The robber had a gun, and fortunately, he didn’t shoot either of them. He got the money, I hear, but it didn’t last long. The cops caught up with him after they had a picture of the robber and a neighbor saw his car. These things happen everywhere, even in a small town. I’m glad to hear that nobody got hurt. What a way for our Mayor to be closing out his term of office! . . . .This is Halloween parade week for sure. Nazareth had theirs on Saturday, Bath’s was on Tuesday, and Northampton’s Jack Frost Parade will be this Thursday. I hope everybody has or will have a good time at all of them and there’s no rain. We’ve had some rain at night after most folks are asleep, but not in the daytime, so that’s all right. It’s supposed to turn real cold on Wednesday. . . .A Werner Freight tractor-trailer caused a big traffic tie-up on Saturday afternoon at Main and Walnut Streets, when it went astray, and police hadta detour traffic around it after a traffic light pole was clipped. . . .At that same intersection a couple weeks ago, four kids had buckets and signs from the Bath Lions Football, asking for money from motorists. It worked for a while until a man stopped them. They

walked away, and police were called in about it as they went down the street. . . .Signs are going up everywhere as we get closer to the general municipal election on November 5th . . . . It was great to see the crowd that showed up for the spaghetti supper at the U.C.C. church on Sunday that benefited the Bath Food Bank. They had plenty to eat, and it was for a great cause. They sure need the food to fill up their shelves that are getting bare with feeding almost 200 people in families from these parts. . . . Eagles played a lousy game against Dallas last week, and better improve when they meet those New York Giants the second time around this Sunday. . . .Bill Santo drove around Bath on his trip up here from Maryland and says he saw a lot of signs that could be illegal under the borough’s new sign ordinance. I agree. See if the borough’s gonna enforce their new rules or not. . . . World Series starts this Wednesday between Boston’s Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s hard to predict this one, but pitching is usually the name of the game. But the Bosox did have two grand slams. Never can tell. Phillies fans can only watch. . . .Enjoy the fall weather. Don’t work too hard raking all those leaves. I see there was a leaf collection in town this week, so at least they get rid of ‘em. See ya!!

The following municipalities have listed their Trick or Treat dates and times: Chapman Borough: Oct. 25, 6 to 7 p.m. Hanover Twsp., Northampton County: Oct. 25, 6 to 8 p.m. Bath Borough: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Bushkill Township: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Moore Township: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Lower Nazareth Township: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Northampton: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Nazareth: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m. Upper Nazareth Township: Oct. 31, 6 to 8 p.m.

Evangelist David Brady to speak at Northampton Assembly of God revival

BY Pastor Daniel E. Lundmark

Evangelist David Brady of Ligonier, PA will be the guest speaker for revival services beginning Sunday, November 3, and continuing through Friday evening, November 8, at Northampton Assembly of God, 3449 Cherryville Road, Northampton. Services will be held at 10:45 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, and 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Evangelist Brady has previously conducted revival meetings in the church.  He effectively communicates the Gospel through a lively and often humorous preaching style as he proclaims the truths of God’s Word relating to man’s need of salvation from sin, healing, deliverance from evil habits, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Brady grew up in a dysfunctional and alcoholic home, and by the age of 15 he was on the streets using drugs and alcohol.  One night, while drinking with his friends in the woods, he felt empty inside.  He recalls, “The more that I drank, the more empty I felt.  I began smashing beer bottles against the trees yelling ‘There has to be more to life than this!’�  That Sunday morning, as he returned home from drinking all night, he heard the bells of a church compelling him to come.  There, at the age of 18, he heard the message of salvation and came to Christ.  Jesus set him free from drugs and alcohol and called him

David Brady into the ministry. The services will also emphasize joyful congregational singing, praise, and worship to God with special times of prayer and seeking God around the altar. Pastor Daniel E. Lundmark cordially invites the public to attend.

Microwave Tips Defrosting frozen steaks takes only minutes. A 1 to 6 ounce steak can be defrosted on defrost power level in 2 minutes on the first side and a minute on the other. A 2 to 6 ounce frozen filet is defrosted in 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Check on second side defrosted, which might require another half minute. Corners of filet should not feel warm after defrosting. When cooking hamburgers in the microwave, one can add cheese to make cheeseburgers. Top each cooked patty with a slice of processed cheese. Microwave on High for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

Grow UR Biz - is there a Doctor in the House?


When we think of customer service, we most often think of walking into a store and the way we are treated but it’s more than that............... I was recently in a car accident. I guess they call it whiplash, but my neck got one heck of a jolt and I’ve been seeing my doc every week since July.  Not that this has any relevance, but I was sitting at a stop light minding my own when a girl hit me from behind (texting for sure).   My doctor!  You will never meet another doctor like this.  Since I’m there every week, I began to observe the way he runs his biz.  He, not his staff,  pops his head into the waiting room in between all patients.  He, not his staff, says hello to us by name when we arrive.  He, not his staff, lets us know how long it will be before he sees us.  He says things like, “be with you in a moment or I’m running a few

minutes behind or come on in now.” It’s not unusual to hear lots of laughter in his office even though most of us walk in with some kind of pain.  What does this Doc have that many do not?  He’s got the ‘patient service’ gene, he understands that his patients are the most valuable piece of his biz and he knows that friendliness goes a long way.   Not only is he a magnificent advocate for docs, he’s also a gifted and talented physician.  He’s got it all, how about you?

What happens when a patient feels wanted and cared for?

1. we talk to others about the outstanding service 2. we would not consider going to another doc 3. and his business is growing as fast as his reputation 4. we refer everyone to him 5. and in my case, I write about him  At the end of the day, there’s not only a doctor in the house, there’s a compassionate, caring man with a heart for healing ready and willing to say hello and shower you with customer service.  Need a new doc?

Comment On Sports By Pete Fritchie


The truth is finally coming out about the excessive number of serious permanent injuries in American football. An NFL financial settlement has already been made but the latest news is that this multi-million dollar settlement was not enough to compensate all permanently injured players. Fans watching the violence in American football are entertained by the hard hits and

players left on the ground regularly. New rules were supposed to have lessened the hard hitting and head hitting in the game but have not stopped enough of it. Money is involved in pro football. In college football the incentive for vicious play is the hope for money if and when drafted by a pro team. Baseball has its own shameful problem. For too many years ball and strike calls, as seen accurately by TV monitors are left to the eyes of the plate umpire, who misses dozens of calls in every game. Yet pro baseball still clings to this perpetuation of errant calls at home plate. The umpire should use modern technology to determine balls and strikes.

Mating Season Finds More Deer Being Hit by Cars

Pennsylvania is the leader in deer - vehicle crashes in the nation – 119,500 in the year that ended in June 2012, with Michigan trailing in second at 87,277 deer falling victim to traffic. One of the reasons for all those losses is the time of year they are going through now, the mating season from midOctober through mid-December. We can say that the Bath area plays a big part in the collisions. Just last week there were two deer killed around here, one just outside of Bath on Rt. 329 and the other along Rt. 512 between Bath and Moorestown. That particular deer was hit by a car driven by a friend of ours who had just left a night of bowling at the Legion and was returning home to Hickory Hills at about midnight. On Monday, we saw two more road-killed deer north of Bath on two sides of the road along 512. There’s a herd that makes its rounds in Moore and East Allen Township. A neighbor of ours spotted a dozen deer in the field behind our backyard a couple weeks ago. They’re out there as the bucks look for their favorite doe. In our family alone we’ve had our share of collisions with deer. As I finished my tour of duty with the U.S. Army in 1954, I hit the middle of three deer on what once was Rt. 22 in New Jersey. Later I hit two other deer – one south of the Keystone at Jacksonville while enroute to a banquet in Northampton, and another, a big buck that crossed our path along Rt. 512 on the hill going out of Bath. One of my sons struck a deer on Rt. 248 west of Berlinsville several years ago. Believe me, it’s no fun. One of our friends said recently that he always drives with his headlights on high beam, especially late at night. It’s a good practice, because deer are crossing roads or standing along shoulders at that time. In 2008 there were 4,109 deer-related crashes in Pennsylvania and 4,855 last year. Fourteen people died and 1,352 were injured in 2012. Northampton County had 71 deer struck by vehicles last year. This past week, WCO Brad Kreider picked up carcasses from five road kills. Statistics show that the average damage claim is more than $3,400. Damage from hitting a deer is covered by the optional comprehensive portion of auto insurance, which means the driver pays a lower deductible for a deer collision than a typical auto crash. The best advice is: Drive carefully, and keep your eyes open and your headlights on high beam whenever a car is not approaching. There may be a deer just ahead!

District Governor stresses Service at Bath Lions meeting

District 14-K Governor Dennis Butz made his official visit to the Bath Lions Club at their dinner meeting this past Wednesday, Oct. 16. A Lion for 29 years since he saw the Emmaus Lions minstrel show, he said he saw how handon service from their club most impressed him. He told of how the Lions made a difference for a 10-year-old boy in a poor family at Christmas time.

With the Lions International president’s theme of “Follow Your Dream,” DG Butz said that happened in Bath and the club was formed in 1928. He told how Lions help through foundation grants and in person, citing the tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri and the Lions sending a busload of members to help in the clean-up. “Service is our Lions identity,” he said. “We’re all one big team,

working together for the common goal of helping others.” Citing a decline in membership, DG Butz said, “We need to replace ourselves. Get one new member per club. All we need to do is ask.” After his talk, he presented a 30-year membership chevron to Lion Marvin Werkheiser and a 35-year emblem to Lion Dan Spengler. Other Business Club president Jack Metcalf thanked the members who helped at the recent Bath Community Day. He announced that the Dist. 14-K cabinet meeting will be on Nov. 10 at Southmoore Golf Course north of Bath. The club is presently collecting Ahart’s grocery receipts as a fund-raiser. Tentative plans are to have a golf tournament in 2014 and a calendar lottery drawing to raise funds for local charitable needs. The final Adopt-A-Highway litter pick-up of the year will be held this month. At the Nov. 6 dinner meeting in St. John’s Lutheran fellowship hall, leaders of the newly merged Boy Scout Troops 35 and 33 will be guests. President Metcalf challenged the Lions to have a name for a new member at their next meeting. Persons interested in joining to help in the community may contact membership chairman, PDG Bill Halbfoerster at 610428-1965.

Pumpkins, mummies and ghosts are an instant way to give your party extra personality. —Stack the Skulls: Turn the crouque-en-bouche, a popular French dessert, on its head by replacing cream puffs with mini-skeleton skulls. To increase the scare factor, mix in bone-shaped cookies and antique the treats with Candy Melts candy and Color Mist food color spray.

Nazareth celebrates Halloween 2013 By DANIELLE TEPPER Special to The Home News

Holidays bring out the best of small-town charm. All decked out with scarecrows and pumpkins galore, the Nazareth circle was a hub of autumn festivities Saturday, Oct. 19 as the weekly Farmers’ Market celebrated its Fall Festival in conjunction with the annual Halloween Parade. The parade has been a Nazareth staple for as far back as Carl Strye (mayor of Nazareth, fire company president, and parade chairman) can remember. But in fact, the earliest recorded parade took place in 1927, according to archived issues of the old ‘Item’ newspaper digitized at the Memorial Library of Nazareth. From the ‘70s on, the Vigilance Hose Company No. 1

and the Nazareth Area Kiwanis Club have sponsored the parade. “My dad did it,” said Strye. “Back then, it was a night parade. I took over in 1987 and changed the route in 1990. I think beginning and ending near the high school makes the whole process a lot easier.” The parade sets off at Belvidere and Liberty, travels up to Main St., goes a quarter of the way around the circle, and continues down East Center St. “Over the years, it’s grown. It’s a nice parade,” said Strye. It is the most popular parade of the year; this year, there were over 1,200 participants, which included four bands, numerous Scout troops, local cheerleading squads, some area politicians and local businesses.

Jennings Transportation also raised over $5000 and donated it to the food bank. “It’s a potluck; it’s open to anybody, so you never know what’s going to happen,” Strye said. “It’s fun, how could it not be? I’ve had a great time doing it. It takes a good group of people to run it and I just happen to have a good group of people under me to help.” Editor’s Note: Our grateful thanks goes to the Nazareth librarians who researched the parade’s origins for us.

Emrick, local officials pursue Grant for Route 191 traffic light Submitted by Scott Little

With one of the county’s most dangerous intersections as a backdrop, state Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton) recently announced at a news conference Upper Nazareth Township’s application for a grant to cover costs associated with installing a traffic light at the Route 191-Friedenstahl Road intersection. Emrick and local officials also laid out the potential timetable for installing it there, the scene of numerous accidents. “This intersection has been the scene of too many traffic accidents and too many discussions dealing with how to address the problem,” Emrick said. “Today, we are announc-

ing a big step forward in the process of installing a muchneeded traffic signal and addressing a safety issue that has been allowed to linger for far too long.” Local officials have applied for a grant of more than $1 million to cover the cost of the traffic light. Awarding of the grant would be made through the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act’s Local Share Account, which consists of revenue generated solely by the Mount Airy Casino, Mount Pocono, and may be distributed among the five counties adjacent to Monroe County. “We need to thank Upper Continued on page 13

Get to Know God Where is God in your life? It’s okay to take some time to think about that question. Some of you will have strong statements of knowing exactly where God is within your relationship with him. Others of you know you are continuing to desperately search for God within your life. And then there are those who do not have a relationship with God and have never thought to even look for one. As Christians; as human beings, I believe most of fall into the category of working on finding a better relationship with God. We try to figure out how God plays a part within our daily lives. We read His holy words from the Bible, we pray to Him, we give Him thanks for everything we have. Heck, sometimes we even drag ourselves out of bed, get dressed and go to church in order to learn a little bit more about God and to worship Him. The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV) Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, "Don't be afraid; just believe." Mark 5:36 (NIV) There are many, many Bible verses telling us about our loving God who cares for us, who loves us, who gives us peace. We have all known times when life seems unbearable and find it hard to believe there is a God let alone a loving and caring God looking over us. Believe me, I understand those thoughts. But I know God is always there for us and there is great comfort in knowing God is always with us. We need to continue to keep searching and find a good relationship with God within our lives. There will be rough spots and times of trouble and heartache but God will always be with you no matter what. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 (NIV) We are so blessed to have been given Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The Prince of Peace has walked in our shoes. He knows our human hearts. Do not be afraid, open your heart and let the Holy Spirit rule within you. Continue to get to know God a little bit better every day of your life. ST.

Autumn makes Hunters a more Frequent sight

Early muzzleloader, firearms Deer seasons await Submitted by: Travis Lau Autumn in Pennsylvania means a change of colors. And, aside from the flaring fall foliage, that change includes the addition of hunter orange to the state’s fields and forests. While hunting opportunities exist throughout the year in Pennsylvania, and some fall hunting seasons already are underway, the majority of seasons are entering their stretch runs toward opening day. This weekend hosts four awaited openers – the first day of the regular squirrel hunting season, the opening day of the one-week muzzleloader season for antlerless deer, and the first day of the seasons for  ruffed grouse and woodcock. Those openers lead the way for the Oct. 26 opening day of a smallgame season for pheasants and cottontail rabbits, as well as the opening days for foxes and other species. Several big-game seasons lie just beyond. All of this means hunters will become a more common sight throughout the Commonwealth. The Pennsylvania Game Commission reminds hunters that hunting with a firearm is not permitted within 150 yards of any occupied structure, school, farm building or playground unless prior permission is obtained from the building’s occupants or property owner. This perimeter is known as a “safety zone,” and possessing a loaded sporting arm within a safety zone is considered hunting and a violation of the law. Trapping furbearers, and chasing or disturbing wildlife also are prohibited within a safety zone, unless permission is given.

A similar law applies to hunters using bows or crossbows, but the safety-zone perimeter is smaller. Archers and hunters using crossbows must remain at least 50 yards from any occupied structure, school, farm building or playground unless they receive permission from the building occupants or property owners to hunt at closer distances. Hunters also are reminded that the fluorescent orange requirements vary depending on the species being hunted. Illustrations depicting the requirements that apply in different seasons can be found in the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest issued to hunters at the time they purchase hunting licenses. The digest also is available online at the Game Commission’s website, Each hunter taking part in the upcoming early muzzleloader season for antlerless deer needs to wear a minimum of 250 square inches of fluorescent orange on the head, chest and back, combined. The orange each hunter wears must be visible from all directions (360 degrees) and must be worn at all times while hunting. This requirement applies to hunters who participate simultaneously in the muzzleloader and archery deer seasons. During the one-week early muzzleloader season, properly licensed hunters are permitted to carry both a muzzleloader and a bow or crossbow. A hunter would need both archery and muzzleloader stamps, plus a general hunting and an appropriate antlerless deer license or Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) permit. While hunters who are taking part strictly in the archery season are required during the early muzzleloader overlap to wear 250 square inches of fluorescent orange while moving, they are permitted to remove their orange once settled into a stationary position. Archery hunters who remove orange clothing are required to post 100 square inches of orange within 15 feet of their locations, and the posted orange must be visible from all directions. Archery hunters who are simultaneously participating in the early muzzleloader season, however, must follow the orange requirements for early muzzleloader. To participate in the early muzzleloader season, a hunter must have a valid Pennsylvania general hunting license, a muzzleloader stamp and valid antlerless deer license or DMAP permit. Antlerless deer licenses in Pennsylvania are valid only within the Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) they are issued. Likewise, DMAP permits are issued for certain properties and are valid only on those properties. Maps showing the locations of WMUs are available in the Hunting & Trapping Digest. Hunters during the early season may use in-line, percussion and flintlock muzzleloaders, and sporting arms may be equipped with scopes, peep-sights and other lawful sighting devices. The one-week early muzzleloader season includes a three-day overlap with a special firearms season for antlerless deer. During that season, which runs from Oct. 24 to Oct. 26, junior hunters (ages 12 to 16), senior hunters (ages 65 and older), mentored youth (hunters who are younger than 12, but who obtain a permit to hunt), hunters who are on active military duty, and certain disabled hunters are able to use a variety of sporting arms to harvest antlerless deer. Permitted sporting arms include manually operated centerfire rifles, handguns and shotguns; .44-caliber or larger muzzleloading long guns; .50-caliber or larger muzzleloading handguns; long, recurve or compound bows; and crossbows. To take part in the special firearms season, hunters must meet participation qualificaContinued on page 18

mains of Jane Rosbrough, mother of the first clergyman killed in the Revolutionary War. Mrs. Moser grew up in the Rosbrough homestead. The last person buried there was in 1939, and his descendant, Charles Humphrey of the Danielsville area, attended Saturday’s tour. In one location, rocks appeared above ground. They were burial markers. Mrs. Moser said the people of the Colonial time were very religious – dust to dust was their belief. Before the clean-up began five years ago, Mrs. Moser, a member of Daughters of the

American Revolution, waded through the tall grass and brush to find the headstone of Moses Hemphill, a Revolutionary War veteran. He was an ancestor of Ann Kirk of Nebraska, who came to the cemetery to look for it with her. Some headstones have an American flag, indicating they were soldiers. Others, like that of James Kerr, had a purple ribbon tied at the top. He was a founder of the settlement, the first in Northampton County, settled in 1728 by people who were either Scotch or Irish. Peggy related much history of the people buried in the cemetery, and the part they played in carving out American history. She learned much of it, she said, by reading the Clyde

Blacktop is around some of the slabs and headstones that are nestled in the neat grass graveyard. A stone wall encases the graveyard and there is a black iron gate for an entrance. Also part of the open house was God’s Missionary Church, where the pastor, The Rev. David Walter, welcomed visitors and they could see photos and other memorabilia from the history of this area. A former stone structure, it was once the Presbyterian Church, built in 1813.

George Washington gave tree of Friendship to Gen. Brown By Ed Pany

Many of our younger folks never heard of the Friendship Tree. Two horse chestnut tree saplings were given to General Robert Brown, Revolutionary war veteran, by George Washington when he visited him at Mount Vernon. Both were planted by Brown at his home in 1781. One sapling died, but the other grew typifying the friendship between the two soldiers. The tree grew to a base circumference measuring 20 feet, 7 inches with limbs stretching to the heavens. In 1921, it was struck by lightning; the Bath Portland Cement Co. erected two huge supports and poured 15 tons of cement into the tree trunk. In 1953, it fell victim to an ice storm. Today only a 10 ft. stump of the Friendship Tree remains. In 1976, the Harrison Kline family gave East Allen Township the deed to the property midway between Jamesville and Frank’s Corner. When I stopped to view the tree, my thoughts immediately returned to the American Revolution. Gen. Robert Brown, Col. John Siegfried; men named Craig, Levin, Rosbrugh would leave their homes and farms to join the Northampton Militia. They engaged British and Hessian troops at the Battles of Trenton, Princeton, Red Bank, Brandywine and White Marsh.

Rev. John Rosbrugh was the Chaplain of the Northampton Militia. He was captured by the British at the Battle of Trenton. There Hessians bayoneted the parson to death. There were seventeen thrusts and a broken saber in his body. He was buried in the church yard, First Presbyterian Church in Trenton. His wife Jane Ralston Rosbrugh is buried along with General Robert Brown at the Jane Horner Cemetery in East Allen Township where Memorial Day services have been held for more than a century honoring those who helped form our nation. A sapling from the tree was

planted 25 years ago by Mrs. Alvin Danner and is now standing 40 ft. tall, 100 yards away from the old tree. In 1962, Mount Vernon, at the request of Bill Halbfoerster, sent a horse chestnut sapling by U.S. Mail to the Borough of Bath Park & Shade Tree Commission, as a replacement for the fallen Friendship Tree. It is growing at Keystone Park. By the way, you can visit the Horner Cemetery which is now cared for by a group headed by my friend Peggy Moser. Today, the Friendship Tree is the symbol of East Allen Township; a township with a long and cherished history.

end dates, as well as bag limits, visit to the Game Commission’s website. There’s a lot of hunting in store. “Autumn is always a special time in Pennsylvania, and an absolutely beautiful time to spend outdoors,” said Carl Roe, the Game Commission’s executive director. “And there’s no better way to spend a fair-weather fall day than by enjoying a great day of hunting. “While little is guaranteed on any hunt, it’s always a good bet that good times await afield and are there for the taking each fall,” Roe said.

Venison care

While hunting in October often offers pleasant days afield, the warm weather also presents challenges for successful deer hunters in assuring harvests result in high-quality venison. Especially in warm weather, harvested deer should be field dressed quickly, then taken from the field and cooled down as soon as possible. While hanging a deer carcass in a shady area might be fine in cooler temperatures, if the air temperature is above 50 degrees, hunters should refrigerate the carcass as soon as possible. Information on warmweather venison care, as well as instructions on deer processing and other tips, are available on the white-tailed deer page on the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.

Reporting harvests

Hunters are required to report deer harvests, and they are encouraged to do so soon after their successful hunts, so they don’t forget. There are three ways to report harvests. Harvests can be reported online at the Game Commission’s website by clicking on the “Report a Harvest” button on the homepage. Reports also can be phoned in to 1-855-PAHUNT1 (1-855-724-8681), or mailed in using the harvest report cards that are inserted in the Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest hunters receive when they purchase a license. Hunters who call should have their hunting license numbers handy, as well as additional information that’s required to be reported.

Mistake kills

Hunters participating in the early muzzleloader season to begin Saturday or the special firearms season to begin Oct. 24 may harvest antlerless deer only. Any hunter in any season who, by accident or mistake, kills an illegal deer is required to deliver the carcass – entrails removed – within 24 hours to any Game Commission officer in the county where the deer was killed. A written statement must be provided to the officer, explaining when, where and how the accident or mistake occurred. The deer must be tagged with the appropriate deer harvest tag.

As it has traditionally, the two-week firearms season for deer will open statewide on the Monday following Thanksgiving. The statewide season this year runs from Dec. 2 to Dec. 14. Hunters in different parts of the state are required to observe different rules regarding the number of points an antlered deer must have and when during the season hunters may harvest an antlerless deer.

Tractor Trailer Hits Pole in Bath

On Saturday, Oct. 19 at 12:25 p.m., CRPD responded to a one-vehicle accident in Bath at the intersection of W. Main & S. Walnut Sts. A Werner Enterprises tractor-trailer driven east on Main St. by Ronald Morris, 69, of Jefferson, Pa., crashed into the traffic light pole as he intended to make a right turn on to S. Walnut St. The trailer had to be removed off the pole by Fast Lane Towing. TELCO responded and took down the traffic light and pole because it was structurally unsafe. Morris was issued a citation for careless driving. All traffic was detoured for three hours while the pole was taken down. CRPD was assisted by the Bath Fire Department and PennDOT.

Retail Thief Wanted by Immigration

Colonial Regional Police responded to Kohl’s Department Store at 3768 Easton-Nazareth Hwy., Lower Nazareth Township, for a retail theft suspect in custody on Oct. 16 at 3:09 p.m. Loss Prevention personnel had seen the offender, Harinder Singh, 21, of 662 Seventh St., Bangor, remove a pair of sneakers valued at $89.99 out of the box and exchange them with the pair of sneakers that he was wearing. He then placed the box containing his old sneakers back on the shelf and passed all points of sale without paying for the Nike sneakers. Kohl’s staff detained Singh and called police. CRPD cited him for summary retail theft. During a criminal history check it was discovered that the offender was wanted by immigration. He had an Immigration Detailer issued from the Department of Homeland Security and he was committed to Northampton County Prison on that detainer.

Ms. Lutz then proceeded to pay for three items at the pharmacy counter and then pushed her shopping cart out of the store without paying for the other 31 items. Ms. Lutz was stopped outside of the store where she admitted to Loss Prevention that she didn’t pay for the items in the shopping cart. They were valued at $243.64. Ms. Lutz has several prior retail theft arrests, which made this charge a felony. She was video arraigned in front of District Judge Romig-Passero and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $7,500 bail.
