From The Editor’s Desk. Joe Korba There have been some changes at the Gazette office recently as we continue to grow and evolve. I’m going to keep this concise so Danielle, the newest addition to our office, can make an introduction. As always, I hope you enjoy this edition!

Dear readers, It is my pleasure to announce that I will begin serving the Gazette as publishing assistant. If you’re interested in advertising with us or know someone who has a unique story worth sharing, I’ll be the one to call. I’m very excited to be joining such a community-driven team. As a resident of the Lehigh Valley for the past 11 years, I’ve grown to appreciate the tight-knit neighborhood feel of local journalism. I’ve translated that affection into my career as a writer for such hometown-centric publications as the Lock Haven Express, redbankgreen.com, and the Edison/Metuchen Sentinel. My passion for writing has also led me to work for the Valley’s own Lehigh Valley Style as well as Endless Vacation, a travel magazine based in Manhattan.

It is my hope that I can continue to grow and learn from my new colleagues here at the Gazette, as well as you, our neighbors whom we strive to serve. I look forward to meeting many of you along the way. Happy reading, Danielle Tepper

Donut Man In Concert at Bowman Park Camp

Yes, you read correctly, Rob Evans, The Donut Man, will be coming close by to Bowman Park Camp in Bowmanstown, PA on Friday, August 16th at 7:00pm.You don’t want to miss this concert! Jumping, clapping, singing, laughing; a Donut Man concert grabs children right where they are with a wonderful blend of Bible songs, stories and lots of audience participation. Rob Evans, The Donut Man, presents the Gospel in a way that introduces young children and their families to the basic elements of the Christian faith and gives them lots to talk about when they get home 'cause the concert is exciting! Children are brought from out of the audience to help the Donut Man tell his stories and to do the hand motions that go with the songs. Even Duncan the Talking Donut pops out of his bakery box to sing a "whole" song. A Donut Man concert is a great place for young families to sow seeds of Biblical values into their lives. Values that Rob has cultivated with his wife and their six children (and now 7 grandchildren). It works. This is "fun that redeems". See you there! This is a concert you DO NOT want to miss. If you have questions you can email us at bowmanpark@ rcn.com. We look forward to you joining us!!

Rentschler celebrates 40 years in Slatington Looking at the shiny new exterior of the two recently renovated Rentschler dealerships on Walnut Street in Slatington, it may be hard to tell the family- owned and operated business just turned 40 years old. The dealership can trace its history back to1973 when Frederick Rentschler, a former Chrysler Corp. District Manager, purchased an existing dealership called Bryfogle Plymouth. After changing the name to Rentschler, Frederick and six former Bryfogle employees opened the doors of the new dealership on April 1 of the same year. Although many people in the local business community thought Rentschler was very bold to start his business in such a harsh economy, the tough times made his resolve even more steadfast. Rentschler, who retired in 1995, and passed away in 2006, was eventually joined in his dream by his sons Fred W. in 1973 and Rick in 1975, after both graduated from Penn State University. From the beginning the business steadily grew, and in 1981 Rentschler and his sons had the opportunity to acquire the Chevrolet dealership next door, Mueller Chevrolet. Over the next 22 years, the Rentschler family expanded its

presence, adding the Jeep franchise in 2002 and the Dodge car and Ram truck lines in 2008. Today, the dealership is excited to announce the opening of the fully renovated Chevrolet and Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram sales and service facilities. After three years of construction, the Rentschlers and their 45 employees are planning a Grand Opening celebration for June 13. Each dealership provides complete support for the sales, service and parts for the full line of Chevrolet car, trucks and crossovers and the entire Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram truck lineup. An experienced body shop team is also on site to provide cosmetic vehicle repairs and assistance for insurance needs. Throughout the years the Rentschler family and staff have been very blessed to have so many friends and customers that they have had the privilege of serving over the last 40 years. And now with Fred W.’s son, Greg (Frederick Rentschler’s grandson) joining the management team, the third generation of Rentschlers look forward to servicing and supporting the local community for the next 40 years.

COOLEST TREAT

www.townandcountrygazette.com | July 18, 2013

The Ice Cream Lab 2013 Coolest Treat Winner!

Story & photos by Danielle Tepper Tim and Wendy Pitts of Danielsville have proudly owned and operated the two-room parlor at 350 S. Best Ave. in Walnutport since 1989. Back then, it was a franchise location for Ice Cream World. As the other locations began to die out, the Pitts’ decided to expand in 2009 and re-brand it into what is now the Lab as a way to break away from the traditional ice cream experience. They’ve managed to turn a frozen dessert into an exploration by offering kids the chance to check out what goes on behind the scenes. “Our whole purpose was to have a place where kids could come and learn and have fun,” said Wendy. “Education is a huge thing for us, so to be able to have kids walk out and hear them say, ‘That was the best party ever’ because they got to measure and play around—they were learning and they didn’t even know it. That’s what’s so cool about it.” The Pitts’ currently offer nine different party options as well as four field trips that include The History of Ice Cream and Ice Cream Around the World. “We didn’t want it to be once-and-done, so this way it never gets old,” said Tim. “It’s a whole different ball game each time.” The hosts of these events, or the Lab “Technicians,” are all certified teachers, further emphasizing their penchant for education. “We have a very dedicated staff,” Wendy said. “Truly great employees. When we need them, they’re here. We’re very grateful to them.” Parties and field trips are available year-round and Wendy said their success has really taken off, allowing them to branch out into other new and exciting things this year, such as catering. “We were able to go into full-fledged catering with our ice cream and cakes,” said Tim. “We’ve always offered this, but we’re finally on a bigger scale because the customers want it.”

So far this summer, they’ve already catered 12 field trips for local school districts. “If the groups are too big to come here or if they’re too far away, we take the party to them,” explained Wendy. “We’ve done our research and can’t find anyone else in the area who would take an ice cream bar to a summer camp or Boy Scout event for such a reasonable price. It’ll be a nice niche for us as we grow.” According to the Pitts’, there is no maximum for the number of people they will serve. “We’re offering a huge variety,” said Tim. “We’ll work with every budget, from a freezer cart to a full-service sundae bar for weddings.” They attribute most of their success, including their second Coolest Treat win, to their “fabulous, loyal customers.” Tim said, “We thank the people.” They both agree that what keeps people coming in is that they are open throughout the off-season and offer something for everyone. If a family of four comes in and they each want something different, chances are, they’ll find them at The Ice Cream Lab, which serves gourmet ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, sorbet, and Italian water ice. Most, if not all, of their product is made from scratch on site, right down to the waffle cones. In their almost 25 years of work, the camaraderie is what keeps them working hard to serve their community. Well, that and Tim’s favorite part—“I get to eat my mistakes.”

Trinity Lutheran Church, Lehighton, hosted the 2013 Vacation Bible School June 16 - 20 with the theme: "Everywhere Fun Fair--Where God's World Comes Together". Director Kelli Carpenter declared it was a great week and the "children had the opportunity to discover God's welcoming love". Over 70 children plus staff explored the everyday life of neighbors in Japan, Zimbabwe, the United Kingdom, Australia & Mexico. They welcomed neighbors from the Bible such as Abraham and Sarah, and Zacchaeus. They enjoyed delicious snacks, collected Scripture souveniers, watched a volcano erupt, played games from other countries and made the "coolest" crafts. The children learned five friendship phrases: Neighbors are friendly Neighbors are giving Neighbors are bold Neighbors are forgiving Neighbors are welcoming. Kelli credits the support of the congregation and the many volunteers for the success of the program.

Request an appointment online at www.lvspinalcare.com (610) 760-8888 Jason Lester Stops by the Gazette Offices on his 3,100-mile Transcontinental Run Nike sponsored Ultra-Endurance Athlete Jason Lester is embarking on another Epic mission, a 3,100-mile transcontinental run across America. He will spread his powerful testimony of inspiration and hope throughout the United States starting May 5th, 2013 in San Francisco, CA and ending in New York, NY. Always driven by his deep purpose to serve, this epic run will be a collaborative service project with Waves For Water. Waves For Water is an active presence and force for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative, which supports neighborhoods and communities recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Their work continues to be tireless and significantly meaningful to thousands in these devastated communities. The goal? To raise $20,000, which will rebuild a home for one family giving them a restorative step forward toward the future. The ultimate goal? To raise as much money as possible to help several families rebuild their homes. All of the funds and proceeds raised during the run will go directly to Waves For Water. When asked about this R[U]N, Lester shared the following -- "It has always been a mission of mine to run across the United States for a greater

purpose than myself. I want this run to be a motivational experience for the countless cities and communities that make up our great country. This is a run of inspiration, which I hope will encourage and motivate individuals, families, and communities to make changes for the better. This opportunity to use my gifts to create a new start and restore hope is truly an enormous blessing for me. Although many have lost everything, they are not focusing on their losses but on the abundance of love and support that they have for their families, friends, and communities. They have chosen to rise and NEVERSTOP believing." -- The mission is greater than the man.

frightens folks the most from taking that plunge; not knowing what lies ahead makes many draw back as they get closer to the inevitable future. Coaches, particularly those of high school sports, often fail to realize when it is time for them to move on for the improvement of the program, and whether they believe it or not, themselves. Coaching is an art form, not a profession. Yes, coaches earn stipends and salaries, but varsity coaches aren’t in it for the money. They aren’t breaking the bank by strutting up and down the sidelines each game. They coach because they love it. They get to teach the game they adore, the game they once played every day, the game that changed their lives. I admire most coaches and the work they do. However, I struggle to support and appreciate those who can’t let go—the coaches who cling to every last morsel of past success when they are, in fact, past their time of helping a team and have instead started to regress and actually hurt the program. Coaching is a tough job full of long hours, but arguably the hardest part of the job is letting go of it. A strong believer that stepping down is the hardest step is the former head softball coach at Northern Lehigh High School, Brian Schell, who stepped down from the helm twice in different decades and now serves as a volunteer assistant. “It is very hard for a coach to step down because

you have invested so much of your time and heart into your players, team and program,” Schell said. “Especially in today’s world, when coaches are expected to coach their players year-round.” Schell used to be top dog of the softball program; he won multiple league and district titles. His resume highlight is a 1988 state title. But even a coach so invested and engulfed in softball life realizes he should step aside when he can no longer give 100% to his team. Another individual who has taken a ride on the National League coaching carousel for many years is former NLHS head wrestling coach Todd Herzog. Herzog retired following this past

Page 33

wrestling season after 20 years in the program. He also believes that letting go is the hardest part. “You get extremely attached to the athletes because you spend so much time with them,” Herzog said. “You can’t help feeling a little guilty when you retire for the underclassman for whom you sometimes feel like you are letting them down or disappointing them in a way,” Herzog said. Schell echoed Herzog’s sentiment about being attached to the players. “The scariest thing about retiring is that you are going to miss the great things about coaching: the planning, practicing, the excitement of the Continued on Page 36

game, but mostly missing the thrill of seeing your players work hard and then achieve their goals is the worst,” said Schell. “There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a team celebrate after winning a game or a championship that they had to work hard to achieve and then seeing the expressions on their faces when they do it.” Schell said he knew it was time to step down for the second time when he “couldn’t put my whole heart and effort into coaching.” Herzog said he knew almost one year before that his time was near and he didn’t want to be “that guy.” “A coach can definitely stay too long and affect the success of the program,” he said. “It is one of the reasons I left. I never wanted to be ‘that guy’ who hung on too long. I never wanted to burn out and then retire when I no longer liked the sport of wrestling. I still love the sport and I still have a deep passion for it.” Who knew that turning the page could be so hard? Obviously the coaches of today don’t. Starting a new chapter is a scary notion, but it must be done. Coaches need to start anew and find a new purpose other than educating youth on their beloved sport.

Superintendent Q&A with

Northampton Area’s Joseph Kovalchik During the summer editions staff writer, Tyler Trumbauer, will be interviewing all six Superintendents from all six of the school districts that the Gazette encompasses. He will be asking each administrator the same inquiries to see how their district is faring in these trying times for public schools. This installment, the fourth of six, is with Northampton Area’s Joseph Kovalchik. TT: How would you describe this past school year for your district across the board? JK: This past school year was a district changing year. The biggest reason why it was that is because we started a construction on a new middle school that would house sixth, seventh and eighth graders. We also are doing upgrades to other places in the secondary campus. There have been talks for 30 years about building a new facility and

By Tyler Trumbauer

we finally broke ground back in April. Everyone is excited about it. This is going to allow us to improve what we offer our students and it will also address our over-crowdedness in some buildings. This is moving sixth grade from elementary to the middle school building. We’ve also purchased numerous Chromebook carts that can be used by our students in the classrooms. We’ve installed interactive projectors in our elementary schools. Also, we have completed our Comprehensive Plan. To do that we had a group of community, staff and faculty members who assembled to create new mission and belief statements. Those statements outline where the district wants to go over the next five years. TT: In your own words what is the current state of the Northampton Area School District? JK: The Northampton Area School District is one of the best kept secrets in the Lehigh Valley. We have a quality staff, excellent students, a strong curriculum with electives and we offer programs that address social issues as well as mental health concerns. On top of that we are able to do this

without terminating employees or cutting any programs. We also still have one of the lowest millage rates in the region. In summary, with all of those positives we definitely are one of the best kept secrets. TT: What is your main concern moving forward? JK: Financial resources are my main concern. There is a delicate balance for schools where I need to make sure that we can maintain our programs, improve our academic performances and keep the students mental health programs. Also, we have to balance a budget that will not have a huge financial burden on our taxpayers. We have to be able to use our resources to maintain our staff, faculty and our buildings. TT: What do you want to do in the immediate future with the district? JK: We want to continue on with the building of our middle school and the improvements of our secondary campus. We have to keep our curriculum up to date. We have to search for alternate funding. We have to continue to search for ways for safer learning for our students and we have to continue to explore the ever-changing world of technology to provide our students with the opportunity to learn in this global education world that we live in.

Page 37

TT: How do you see your district in five years? JK: What I see in the Northampton Area School District in five years is growth. We have a quality educational system here and I believe that people will eventually be moving in to our district because we are on the level with the bigger schools. I think that we also need to continue to explore technology. I’m very big with technology. We need to also pursue the concept of each student utilizing their own technological device. Also by 2018, I see our building projects being completed. I see the district in five years growing in every way.

Ei du Zeit! So kennt mer fattmache vun so alde Dinge, awwer mei Babier iss voll. -Florence Baver July 21, 1955 Say now, immediately, before I forget it, I will write to you that Saturday night, the 23rd July, a Liars Contest will be held in Egypt Park. If you were not there yet, then don’t miss it this year. I bet that you in your lifetime have not heard such a series of lies like will be told there again. Pumpernickel Bill will again keep those who are participating straightened out. I don’t know who all is among the contestants again, but I think it will probably be the same group like last year. We again also expect to tell a few [lies] that we hope that everybody believes. This again is the time of the year for the annual Sunday school picnics. I asked many people what they can still remember of picnics years ago. Here are a few of the things that I heard. For one thing, once, the picnics are certainly never the way they Fully Insured Quality Work at Reasonable Rates FREE ESTIMATES (610) 767-7119 or 703-3848, cell

once were. One man said they always rode to the picnic in the buggy. The horse was tied to a tree so that he stood facing home, so that if he broke loose, he would go homeward. [Another] one said how they lit up the grove with kerosene lights. There was a type of tank that was hung on a tree. Beneath the tank and away from the tree was a pole that had a lantern fastened to it. The tank was filled with kerosene. The children played ring tag. The food could not have been any better. It was brought along to the picnic in the wash basket. The children and the band were fed first and later the adults. Everything was placed on a large table and everyone moved around it [to get their food]. The ice cream was in large tubs and one ate it with small tin spoons. Some of the people came to the picnic by trolley. And that was always an ordeal. If the trolley was full some would hang on the sides. One lady said to me that one time her grand pap put on a wig like the Belznickel in July, tied a lot of pretzels together with a string, hung them over his back and ran around the grove so that the children could chase after him to try and get the pretzels. Oh you, time! One could continue on so about such old things, but my paper is full. Nancy J. Hartman - 68 on July 26th Tyler A. Hoppes - 7 on July 27th
