Helping Men Battle The Signs Of Aging

It’s All About Him Gentlemen, It’s that time again – our annual His/Her edition is here. I’ve worked hard gathering some great articles about issues that pertain to you. So grab a pint of Yuengling, kick back and relax with some men-centric reading. Including: - A new product that can help guys fight against the ravages of time. - Some pragmatic and practical advice for dudes who might wince at the words “grooming routine.” We offer some tips for guys looking to upgrade their workout gear and how you can stay fresh and clean even while tailgating on game day. - Finally, we highlight a testosterone fueled family fun option – monster trucks. These huge, four-wheeled monstrosities tour around the United States with a high-flying and exciting show the whole family can enjoy. It’s easy to forget in this fast-paced world full of work and family responsibilities that you have to take some time and take care of yourself. I hope these grooming and vacation tips come in handy. -Joe Korba

There’s hopeful news for men who are fighting the signs of aging. A new, clinically demonstrated antiaging treatment specifically formulated for men’s thicker, coarser skin has been introduced. The product is from a company that has addressed the skin care needs of men since the 1970s—Kiehl’s Since 1851. Called Facial Fuel “Heavy Lifting” Firming, Lifting, Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer for Men, it uses a dual-action antiaging formula to battle the visible signs of aging. First, it employs a gentle exfoliator to clear away surface debris and allow the antiaging formula to work more effectively on men’s tougher, thicker skin. It then uses linseed extract to strengthen, fortify and firm the skin, reducing wrinkles. Vitamins C and E and cocoa seed butter nourish and protect the skin. Said Chris Salgardo, president of Kiehl’s USA, “We develop products for men that meet their skin care needs without complicating the process.” When it comes to anti-aging skin care, experts say men want simple solutions. -Newsusa

Practical Skin Care Tips For Men

Though men's grooming is on the rise, it is often still the case that when guys hear the words "grooming routine," they envision a lengthy process involving many products and spending as much time in front of the mirror as their wives and girlfriends.This misconception about skin care can have painful consequences Dove® Men+Care™, the brand's first product line specifically designed for men, found that 50 percent of men experience some form of underarm discomfort or itching and believe this is the price to pay for using a powerful deodorant. It doesn't have to be this way. Dr. Jeffrey Benabio, dermatologist and men's skin care expert, offers simple tips to help guys take better care of their skin without cutting into their free time. "Grooming and skin maintenance aren't just for women—there are simple things that guys can do that will visibly improve the look and feel of their skin," said Dr. Benabio. 1. Ditch the Soap: Guys often rely on a generic bar of soap (or worse, shampoo) to wash their bodies. These products are too harsh and strip essential oils from skin. "The dryness caused by soap is cumulative— the more you use it, the more damage you do to your skin," said Dr. Benabio. At the drugstore, grab a moisturizing body wash like Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash that is clinically proven to fight skin dryness with no irritation or tightness. 2. Upgrade Your Workout Gear: While working out or playing sports, try wearing fabrics that wick sweat away from skin to help prevent skin from staying wet (when moisture is trapped on the skin, it is at a greater risk for infection). Cotton, for example, is not ideal because it absorbs moisture. Check your local sports shop for moisture-

wicking apparel made of materials like polyester or microfiber. 3. Don't Forget Your Skin on Game Day: Tailgating and getting painted up in your favorite team's colors is a tradition for many guys, but face paint makeup can clog pores and lead to irritation. After the big game, to completely remove the gunk, use a moisturizing body wash in the shower.

4. Remember That All Deodorants Are Not Created Equal: If the skin under your arms starts to itch or you see a rash developing, your deodorant is likely the culprit. Never treat this with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to "disinfect" the trouble spots—the problem is almost never an infection; it's usually a contact irritation. Look for a formula that works best with your skin but still gives you the odor and wetness protection that you need. Dove Men+Care antiperspirants and deodorants, for example, are specifically formulated to be nonirritating and hydrating to help combat dryness while providing powerful 48-hour odor protection. 5. Have a Good Road Warrior Routine: When traveling to and from new regions with differing climates, know your skin and use products that you're already familiar with; now is not the time to experiment with new lotions and deodorants that hotels might give you. Always have these basics in your travel bag: facial wash, moisturizer, sunscreen and products that do double duty, such as Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash that also have Dove moisturizers, to provide total skin comfort and keep you traveling light. -Newsusa

Monster Trucks—A Big Chance For Family Fun Those looking for exciting entertainment the whole family can enjoy are finding that some monsters can be very family friendly—monster trucks, that is. Over the last two decades, monster truck events have become one of the most popular forms of family entertainment in the United States. In fact, according to the official website of Monster Jam, the premier tour in monster truck racing, more than 4 million fans are entertained each year at tour stops all over the United States. The events give communities the chance to rally around their favorite competitor as they experience the thrill of the racing series. A Chance For Family Time For many families, these races are a chance to enjoy a shared experience and bond over a

common interest. This can be good news for the 33 percent of parents who, according to the Pew Re­search Center, say they are not spending enough time with their families. A monster truck show typically involves high-flying vehicles performing in what are known as freestyles. In these events, monster trucks execute a variety of tricks and stunts, often crushing smaller vehicles, such as smart cars and sedans, beneath their huge tires. A Popular Pair Of Monsters Weighing in at a car-crushing 10,300 pounds, with more than 2,000 horsepower and 10 feet in height, two of the more popular trucks on the circuit are Raminator and Rammunition. These iconic Ram Truck brand-sponsored monster trucks

are crowd favorites and are considered among the most feared contenders on the racetrack. Owned and operated by the renowned Hall Brothers Racing team, these trucks perform at free dealership events—open to all ages—where the trucks run up and over man-made barriers and trample whatever obstacles are in their path. For many, a highlight of these behind-the-scene events is the opportunity for fans to ride along

Moms, Grab Some “Me Time” With These Tips

Ladies,

I

It’s All About Her

t’s that time of year again when we roll out our annual His/Hers issue. I worked closely with our advertisers to bring you some exclusive deals at local salons, gyms, and massage parlors so you can feel fit and fabulous. Keep your eyes peeled for special deals from our advertisers throughout the book, such as a create-your-own special at Revolution Styling Factory and $10 off any hour-long massage at Nancy’s Therapuetic Massage. It’s easy to get swept up during the back to school rush—in between shopping for new notebooks and backpacks, preparing lunches and getting to the bus on time, it can be hard to remember to take some time just to relax. We’re here to help. Grab a glass of wine, put your feet up and kick back with the Gazette, where you’ll find articles chosen just for you. • Moms, you do so much for your kids. Don’t neglect yourself though: Read through Dr. Wendy Walsh’s tips for enjoying your “me time.” • Sick of defending your “hourglass” shape? Canadian Peter Nygard has designed a clothing model to make women feel like the gems they are. Determine the best clothing choices for your shape, whether you’re an emerald, opal, pear or sparkling diamond. • Music is a must for working out. It keeps your energy high and instills a natural urge to get moving—but no one wants to stop every five minutes to readjust their earbuds on the treadmill. Consider these criteria when choosing the right set. As we enter a new school year, we hope all you moms, teachers, and hard-working homemakers remember to take care of yourselves as well as your families. Enjoy! – Danielle Tepper

Moms are the true jacksof-all-trades. They are the chefs who get meals on the table and lunches packed; the chauffeurs who get kids where they need to be; the doctors who bandage up scrapes; the listeners to problems big and small; the social directors of playdates and parties; and so much more. With all that they do, moms rarely get a moment to take a break and enjoy a bit of time for themselves. Dr. Wendy Walsh, busy single mom, TV personality and college professor, understands what it’s like to be busy. Here are her tips for helping other moms sneak a little “me time.” • All moms should take a guilt-free break during their busy day. Try arriving at school carpool early. Turn off the car engine, tune into a favorite radio station and reach into your bag for a favorite snack – like a Keebler Granola Fudge Bar. The granola bars are 150 calories and contain 3 grams of fiber*. • Watching kids read can remind moms how

Fashion Guide for Your Body Type

relaxing it is to escape in the pages of a riveting novel. Get mom-friends together and form a book club, so there’s always an excuse to take a break. Tell kids you’re doing Mommy-homework, because the book club is meeting soon. • As the sun sets, parents want to wind down, but sometimes kids, especially colicky babies, wind up. A nice walk is a great way to calm a child down. When the kids get older, keep walking at sunset. It’s a great way to take a break from the chaos of the house and soothe yourself. From taking a peaceful break to enjoying a favorite snack, the importance of a little break in a very hectic day is key for moms. -Newsusa

Thanks to the fashion industry’s obsession with young, waif-thin models, real women all over the country are saddled with guilt as they struggle to squeeze into that elusive size 0. But when it comes to women’s clothing, the key to feeling beautiful is choosing pieces that are not only fashionable but comfortable, too. Knowing your body type and choosing the right clothes that complement your body are the next steps to this process. Instead of classifying women as “apples” or “curvy,” the Canadian women’s clothing line – Nygard – looks beyond these rudimentary labels and strives to treat women like unique jewels. Peter Nygard, the company’s founder and chairman, strives to design affordable, high-quality fashions for today’s real women: the emeralds, diamonds, opals and pears. Follow these fashion tips based on your unique body jewel: Emerald: A boyish shape with shoulders the same width as the hips and an undefined waist, Nygard recommends that emerald’s get curvy — wear clothing that simulates an hourglass shape by emphasizing your shoulders and hips. Look for jackets that have strong or wide shoulders that make your waist appear smaller, or a peasant blouse that creates shape and interest on top. Rely on belts to pull the eye inward — wide, skinny or anywhere in between. Diamond: Naturally well-proportioned shoulders and hips with a small and defined waist. Diamonds should seek out clothes that follow that basic frame and keep the shoulders and hips balanced. For instance, V-necks, sweetheart and scoop necklines that square off the shoulders will flatter a diamond’s collarbone and neck. Opt for fitted blazers instead of boxy, as well as full, pleated, A-line or pencil skirts with a wide waistband. Opal: A swimmer’s body; broad shoulders and narrow hips. Nygard’s advice is to wear clothes that de-emphasize your shoulders and add contour to your bottom half to balance your figure. Jackets

that cinch at the waist, and then flare out, create the illusion of curvy hips. Choose darker colors on top to narrow your silhouette, paired with low-rise pants with side pocket detailing or full, printed skirts. Pear: Like it’s name, a pear-shaped body with narrow shoulders, a defined waist and a fuller bottom and hips. Add balance by creating wider shoulders, highlighting your waist and playing down your bottom half. Wear texture on top to create volume and interest, along with dark colors below the waistline. Bootcut pants make hips look slender by balancing hip width to hem width. Most importantly, think vertical: Knee-length pencil skirts will hold curves in. -Newsusa

Exercise, Music and Headphones: Tips and Trends for Women When Working Out These days, working out is almost impossible without some source of music. When’s the last time you went to the gym without your iPod? While music and exercise have always paired well together, new studies show real benefits. Whether you jog, lift weights or take yoga classes, music—including how you get it—is critical to a good workout. Research from London led by the deputy head of research at the School of Sport and Education at Brunel University, Costas Karageorghis, found that music at the right tempo can increase motivation and lower your perception of physical effort. Other data supports similar findings. The Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology published a study showing that treadmill walkers who listened to high-tempo music displayed more endurance. But to get the most out of exercise, it helps to have high-quality headphones. Unfortunately the current marketplace doesn’t have many options for women.

As an active woman, both the playlist and headphones should be selected with care to match your personality and your preferred workout activities. If you’re having trouble finding the right headphones, consider the following tips: 1. Comfort is critical. On the days you wind up wearing headphones for several hours, it helps to have comfy buds that easily fit in or around your ear. Try out a few products if need be to find something that feels pleasantly secure. 2. Find the right fit. Typically headphones are made in standard sizes, which don’t always work for all ears. Companies have recently introduced headphones just for women, like the Koss Fit Series Headphones. The Koss Fit Series are 33 percent smaller than the average headphone. Make sure your headphones fit you; your music will literally sound better. 3. Variety is key. Stash a few pairs of headphones in different locations so they’re handy whether you’re at home or work. But remember to consider what qualities are important to you. Are they sweat-resistant? Do you prefer over the ear headphones or something smaller? If variety is truly the spice of life, your exercise routine deserves the same treatment. 4. Make them fun. Up-tempo music can energize any workout, especially when your headphones match your style. Choose headphones that reflect your personality. 5. Never compromise quality for price. To be frank, five-dollar earbuds probably won’t last long and definitely won’t provide the same quality. To keep motivation levels up, invest in a product known for its craftsmanship and enjoy the best sound quality at all times. In this case, it’s best to go with companies that have been in business for decades. -Newsusa

Let’s Celebrate 150 Years of Incorporation

Submitted by the Slatington 150th Anniversary Committee

SlatingtonFirst Half of the 20th Century Uptown Early 1900s

Smith Hall 1930s

A

ugust 24, 2013 is set to be the kick-off date for the celebration of Slatington’s 150th anniversary of incorporation as a borough. This date will kick off a yearlong celebration full of gatherings, music, food, family fun and much much more! The celebration will culminate in August 2014 with a week full of great events throughout the borough. Although Slatington was officially incorporated on September 7, 1864, its history actually dates back to 1737 when a man named Nicholas Kern obtained 500 acres of land. That land would eventually become parts of Washington Township and Lehigh County. In 1739, Kern moved his family here and erected the first building in Slatington. Built of logs, it stood

on the northeast corner of what is now Main and Diamond Streets. That same year he, along with his seven sons, erected a grist mill and sawmil along Trout Creek. The Kern family lived in Slatington quietly for almost one hundred years as millers and farmers. That’s not to say life was dull for the Kerns. In these pre-slate years there were always Indians to deal with; soldiers would be stationed near Trucker’s Mill to protect this important location. Their sawmill was well known and in January of 1756, Ben Franklin reported to General Morris that he had procured boards and lumber from Truckers Mill for use at Fort Allen in Weissport. Then in 1844 something happened that would change this area forever, and things would change

fast. That year, two Welshmen named William Roberts and Owen Jones first discovered slate on the property of the patriarch Jonas Kern, great-grandson of Nicholas Kern. From 1850-1860 this area known as Kernsport would grow from a few families to over 500 people. Ten more years saw another increase to two thousand people. The rest is history, Slatington became the slate capitol of the world! In the coming year and during the eight day celebration scheduled from August 9 to August 16, 2014 there will be block parties, a parade, fireworks, and so on. We will be celebrating our churches, our citizens, our veterans, our volunteers, our past and our future. To help finance these ambitious plans the Slatington 150th Anniversary Committee will be selling souvenirs throughout the year as well as at the kick-off celebration on August 24. To date, we have twenty charter members. Charters are community minded organizations that have pledged to assist the Slatington 150th Committee in fundraising, hosting events and community service projects. Look for upcoming Charter events beginning shortly after the kick-off! We also urge everyone to pre-order the new two hundred page, hard cover history book about Slatington during the kick-off celebration. There will be a limited number of copies made, so it is best to order early. More than anything we need your help! This is everyone’s town and everyone celebration! If you are willing and able to help, please come to a meeting at 7 p.m. at the Vigilant Fire Company. Meetings are held on the first and third Monday of each month. Don’t forget – the kick-off celebration is August 24. The celebration includes a pig roast, beer garden, live entertainment, food concessions, crafters, basket raffle and much more. Presenters include our very own State Representative Julie Harhart as well as Mayor Walter Niedermeeyet. We will also welcome Judge James T. Anthony of Lehigh County Court of Common Please as our keynote speaker. Judge Anthony was a Commissioned Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps Reserve since 1981. During his military career he served in both active duty and reserve capabilities including service in Iraq in 2004-2005 and 2006-2007. Colonel Anthony retired from the Marine Corps in 2009. See you at the celebration!

Vigilant Fire Co. Participates in Parade

Submitted by Robert Stettner

S

everal members of the Vigilant Fire Company No. 2, Slatington attended the Annual Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association (CVVFA) Parade on Saturday August 3 in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. The CVVFA was begun 112 years ago as a result of a tragic and devastating fire that occurred in Shippensburg, to enhance firefighting efforts in towns along the Cumberland Valley Railroad. Today the association is comprised of individuals and fire companies from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Delaware. The current mission of the CVVFA is assisting local fire fighters with training and public education programs on fire safety and prevention. The Vigilant Fire Company attended the parade because of a special invitation extended to it by the host company, the Vigilant Hose Co. #1 of Shippensburg. As host of this year’s convention and parade, Vigilant Hose of Shippensburg decided to attempt a first of its kind gathering of all the fire companies in Pennsylvania and surrounding states with the current or former name Vigilant, to participate in the parade. According to Wayne Powell, the executive director of the National Fire Heritage Center, located in Emmitsburg, Maryland, “The Roman Emperor Augustus organized civilization's first known firefighters about 27 BC, he decided on a name that evokes images of bravery and diligence. So it wasn't unusual that the ``vigiles'' who patrolled Rome's streets on the lookout for fires, were

remembered in 1830 in Portsmouth when the city's Resolution Fire Company named the town's first steam-pumped fire engine ``The Vigilant.'' Some 2,021 years later, it characterizes the essence of the women and men who work in one of the world's most dangerous occupations.” Powell assisted the Vigilance Hose of Shippensburg in tracking down the various Vigilants located throughout the country in order to invite them to the parade. To date Powell has identified some 56 companies around the country located in 20 states that currently share or formerly held the name Vigilant. Interestingly, most of these companies are located in New York and Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania alone had at one time some 18 Vigilant Fire Companies. The parade began at noon, and featured some 80 pieces of fire apparatus, a band, and several antique fire trucks and hose carts. In addition to the Vigilant Fire Company from Slatington, other Vigilants who participated in the parade included York, PA, Columbia, PA, South Newton Township, PA, Emmitsburg, MD and the parade host Vigilant Hose Company #1 of Shippensburg, PA. Several other Vigilants had expressed interest in attending, but were unable to attend due to prior commitments. The Vigilant Fire Company No. 2, Slatington attended the parade with its 1903 junior firemen’s hose cart. This 110-yearold antique hose carriage was used by Vigilant’s Junior Members around the turn of the 20th century, as they often accompanied and marched with the firemen in parades. The juniors had their

own decorative uniforms and banner, and pulled the hose cart in local parades, including the annual Slatington Halloween Parade. In addition to a commemorative participation plaque, given to all participating Vigilant organization, Vigilant Fire Company from Slatington garnered a second place trophy in the category Best Appearing Antique Hand Drawn Pumper or Hose Reed, and a special judges award. In appreciation for being invited to this historic gathering of Vigilant Fire Companies, members of the Vigilant Fire Company presented Shippensburg Fire Chief Charlie Myers with a slate plaque depicting Vigilant Fire Companies Firemen’s Monument and a history book from the company’s 100th anniversary. The organizers of the Vigilants gathering had no knowledge of the existence of the Vigilant Fire Company’s Firemen’s Monument located in Union Cemetery until they were sent a photo of it prior to the parade. They became so enamoured with the monument, they used a photo of it on the front cover of the program for the Historic Gathering of the Vigilant Fire Organizations. Several organizers, including Charlie Myers, Chief of the Vigilant Hose Company No. 1 of Shippensburg are planning trips to Slatington to see the firemen’s monument in person.

A Midsummer’s Dream Farmers Market Returns to Northampton

A midsummer’s  dream is coming true in the Borough of Northampton at the Farmers’ Market.   It is not a secret. A wonderful variety of locally grown fresh vegetable and fruit produce harvested in the morning is available for sale each Tuesday afternoon on Main Street in Northampton.   A Kiffle pastry making vendor is there to serve farm market visitors as well.  And now there will be entertainment. The newly formed Farmers’ Market is being well received by the residents of Northampton Borough and surrounding areas. This new farmers’ market is open every Tuesday from 3:00 to 7:00 pm close to the Roxy Theater near 19th  and Main Streets. Next Tuesday August 6th  there will also be live entertainment. A family of musicians will serenade farm market customers. The music venue will be at the Lyric Commons across the street from the Roxy Theater on Main Street in Northampton Borough. Carol Simcoe owner of the Lyric Commons arranged to have the Peachey musical Family perform for Northampton Farmers’ Market visitors. The Peachey family recently performed to the delight of Kutztown Fair visitors.  Based on their success there, Carol Simcoe invited them to perform in Northampton.  Come join us. Each one of our Northampton Farmers’ Market vendors participates and supports the Farmers’ Market Nutritional Program. In case you were not aware of this Nutritional Program, here are some facts: • The Farmers’ Market Nutritional Program was established in 1993 to provide fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers' markets to WIC participants; and to expand consumers' awareness and use of farmers' markets. • WIC stands for Women, Infants, and Children and is also called the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program. WIC is a federal program designed to provide food to low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding

women, infants and children until the age of five. The program provides a combination of nutrition education, supplemental foods, breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals for health care. WIC has proven effective in preventing and improving nutrition related health problems within its population. • In Pennsylvania the Farm Market Nutritional Program operates in 67 counties at over 976 market and farm stand sites. • The program provides checks to WIC participants to purchase locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables at their local farmer's market every year between June 1 and November 30. • Pregnant and postpartum women, breastfeeding mothers, and children age 2 by December 31st of that year are eligible. Next week there will be at least three good reasons to visit the Northampton Farmers Market August 6th  from 3:00 to 7:00 PM for everyone to purchase good, fresh locally grown food, with great entertainment, and with an opportunity to use Farmers’ Market Nutritional Program vouchers as a way for those in need to purchase fresh food. -Submitted by Victor Rodite

Originally by Florence Beaver, translated by Larry Gradwohl.

September 1, 1955 All that we have to say of the great flood that Easton just went through is that we are very thankful that we live on high, dry ground and suffered no loss. We did not even know that there was high water until we wanted to go down town to purchase groceries for over Sunday and a neighbor woman came and told us that we could not get over the bridge, there was a flood. We began to tune our ears to what was happening and did what many of the other people did. We jumped in the car and drove part of the way down the hill to see what was happening. What we saw was something not seen before in our lifetime here in Easton: Water and property damage everywhere! [The worst major flood, prior to this, was in 1903.] The cleaning up afterwards is terrible. We were for a couple of days, so to say, cooped up. The bridges were closed everywhere. We wonder how many people are again reminded of prayer and to honor the Almighty more, who we all often forget until we are in distress. In our work we find out how many people there are that do not live up to their reputation, and sometimes we scratch our heads and wonder why God made the world so beautiful considering the way some people are who live here. [How many people can still remember that flood? I was just a young boy when my dad took the family in the car to see it. On one occasion when we were looking at that area the covered bridge from Portland struck the ‘free bridge’. It was later repaired and is still used to this day. That flood was a great tragedy. It killed many people, ruined buildings and personal possessions and washed away roads, bridges and railways. To this day that is the worst that the Easton area experienced.]

Joke Corner Marriage Conclusion

A woman’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he said, “You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side… You know what?” “What dear?” She asked gently. “I think you bring me bad luck.”

Superintendent Q&A with Palmerton Area’s Scot Engler

By Tyler Trumbauer

Staff writer Tyler Trumbauer has interviewed all six Superintendents from all of the school districts that the Gazette encompasses. He has asked each administrator the same inquiries to see how their district is faring in these trying times for public schools. This installment, his last, is with Palmerton Area’s Scot Engler. TT: How would you describe this past school year for your district across the board? SE: As you know, I wasn’t here for the last year and I started on July 1. So I don’t know if it would be fair for me to say if it was good or bad, but it would be fair to say that it was a school year in which they anticipated some change. TT: In your own words, what is the current state of the Palmerton Area School District? SE: I think currently the spirit in the town and the community has been reignited. This is a wonderful time for the district. TT: What is your main concern moving forward? SE: While funding and initiatives are all concerns for me, our initial focus for this year is to once again establish the pride that exists in Palmerton. We are looking at once again showing how great a district Palmerton is. TT: What do you want to do in the immediate future with the district? SE: We want to look at our facilities as they are important. We want to look at the safety of our

district and community. I want to make sure that personally I am visible and that people will see me out and about at events. TT: How do you see your district in five years? SE: It is going to be a proud and successful school district. It will have an engaged student population.

Extra Point by Tyler Trumbauer

A Talk with PIAA’s Lombardi

Nearly 100 years of existence. 350,000 participating student athletes. Nearly 14,000 officials. 1,422 member schools. 12 geographic districts. One man running it all. That man is Robert Lombardi and he is the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association. Lombardi has been on staff with the PIAA since 1988. Throughout the decades, he has worked his way up the corporate ladder and took over as the Executive Director in early 2012. Now that he has finished his long ascent up that ladder, he can look down and see the PIAA at its finest and he is certain that it is just the way the founding fathers back in December of 1913 would have wanted it. “The founding fathers of the PIAA would be very proud of the association and the way it is in the present,” he said. “I think that it is not only consistent with its vision, but with some of the growth and the programs that some schools are offering, they would be very, very pleased.” Although Lombardi is stationed at the PIAA headquarters with the rest of his staff members in Mechanicsburg, PA, he is very aware of all the happenings throughout scholastic sports in the Keystone State. A big concern for him recently has been head trauma and how to prevent it as it has come to the forefront of all levels of sports in recent months. He has a soothing message for parents and student athletes alike. “The issue of concussions is concerning to many, but the best part of it is that we have a sports medicine group that meets regularly and we discuss many issues,” Lombardi said in a phone interview. “All of the

members are cutting edge. They do a great job establishing policies and procedures to make the athletic ranks as safe as possible. At the local level, we are seeing an increase in the hiring of athletic trainers. Our coaches are also better educated on the situation. All of that adds to a safer environment for our student athletes. Currently about 75 percent of our schools have an athletic trainer under contract.” Lombardi’s biggest initiative is student athlete safety in all athletics. One new policy that has taken place this summer is the Heat Acclimation Policy for football’s two-a-day practices. This new policy forces teams to have shorter practices the week before double sessions get underway to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion. There has always been the debate in high school sports about public schools vs. private schools. People question the parity of the level of completion, they question the possibility of recruiting tactics and they question if they should ever play against one another at all. Locally, this has been heavily talked about after the Mountain Valley Conference invited the Lehigh Valley Conference to join them to form a “super conference” that would leave out both Allentown Central Catholic and Bethlehem Catholic. Lombardi wished to not comment on the possible merger between the LVC and the MVC, but he did dish out some insight on the private vs. public school battle. “There have been no talks on the executive level to separate private and public schools,” he stated. “In 1972, an act of the legislature added private schools to the PIAA and I don’t see how separating schools out would make our organization better. Neither the Board of Directors nor the staff supports that idea.” Lombardi also offered some strong advice to the recruiting accusers. “If there are people out there that have information about the possibility of any kind of recruiting, they need to bring it forward to a local committee and have a hearing,” he said. “If they are not willing to address it and bring up facts, figures and testimony there is nothing we can do. We don’t want rumors or innuendos.” There is now another big Performance Enhancing Drug scandal in the sporting world in Major League Baseball with Biogenesis and Alex Rodriguez. PEDs have hampered nearly every professional sport across the globe, but has it crept into high school locker rooms? “I think it has reared its ugly head,” Lombardi admitted. “Some of our schools already have mandatory drug testing. I know the school district in which I live has a program in place. I rely on those in leadership positions to show the right way.


www.townandcountrygazette.com | August 15, 2013

I know what is going on in other leagues, but what we have are impressionable teens. We need athletic directors and coaches to show the right way to those teens. I don’t think it is a bad situation yet.” According to the PIAA by-laws, it is up to the district’s school board to enforce drug policies, but in my experience I don’t see any enforcement being done. Lombardi insisted that he trusts the leaders, but I feel that it is just a road less traveled. Behind football, basketball is arguably the second most-followed varsity sport. In some states, it is more competitive than it is here in Pennsylvania. Some states use a shot clock during game play, but Lombardi doesn’t see that being implemented in our neighborhood. “There are only a few states that have a shot clock,” Lombardi said. “In our state, with school budgets being cut back, it’d be tough [to put in a shot clock]. We would need to put in equipment and also train individuals to operate that equipment so that it doesn’t affect the games and

I don’t think we are there yet. So at this time, I’d have to say that the answer is, not yet.” Back on December 29, 1913, a group of high school principals just wanted to regulate, protect and create an equal playing field for interscholastic athletics. Almost a century later, the PIAA has reached new heights and is climbing even higher. Some may agree it is climbing up some of the wrong trees, but no matter what your opinion is, Lombardi says that he is always willing to tell the PIAA’s story.

TACO is a fixed and has all shots. He is a 3 year old male pocket pit available for adoption through the Carbon County Animal Shelter. Taco likes some dogs but needs more training on a leash. He is very sweet and likes kids. He is very energetic so a home with older kids would be best. For more information, contact the Carbon County Animal Shelter at (570) 325-4828. The shelter is located at 63 Broad Street, Nesquehoning.

NCC-PASR Presents Awards

www.townandcountrygazette.com | August 15, 2013

Smiles and applause filled the room at Northampton Community Center on June 19 as the Northampton County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (NCC-PASR) held its annual awards luncheon. Frank Kovacs, Chair of the Educational Support Committee, introduced Shirley Koch. She in turn introduced Dr. Sandra Fellin, Superintendent of Saucon Valley School District, who presented the Lauretta Woodson Awards to Sarah Thatcher, a French teacher, and Kim Sauerzopf. These awards are presented annually through the state PASR to recognize both an educator and a support professional who have exhibited creativity, initiative, or productivity relevant to the learning process and growth of children. Both ladies received $100 along with a plaque and medal commemorating their achievement.

Nancy Pfeffer, a member of the Educational Support Committee, introduced recipients of this year’s William C. Pfeffer, Jr., Educational Grants, named for her late husband who was very active in the county chapter. Amanda Dennis and Taryn Gergar, both teachers at Plainfield Elementary School in Pen Argyl School District, were selected from applicants who are elementary teachers throughout the county to receive $300 to help fund a project during the 2012-2013 school year. Danielle DosSantos, a teacher at Calypso Elementary School in Bethlehem School District, also received this award but was unable to attend the luncheon-meeting. Kirsten DeRoche of Colonial Intermediate Unit 20’s Curriculum Department presented this year’s Arthur D. MacDonald Award to Michelle Orcutt, an IU20 teacher of students with multiple disabilities. This award of $100 is presented annually in honor of another very active chapter member who was prominent in IU20 for many years before his retirement. The final award was a $500 scholarship presented to Stephanie Catino, currently a student at Kutztown University who plans to become a veterinarian, by NCC-PASR President Ruby Ifkowitz. This award is presented to a child, grandchild, or great-grandchild of a member of the chapter who is either a senior at a public high school in Northampton County or a graduate of such a school who is a student at an institution of higher education.
