From the Editor’s Desk

Joe Korba

The Northern Lehigh Food Bank Needs You This time of year is often the most sentimental. The holiday season can induce a kind of sepia-toned nostalgia, often with those proverbial warm, fuzzy feelings. Most of us are lucky enough to gather around a table with our family and friends and indulge in enough turkey, stuffing, desserts and other treats to render us immobile in front of the television for the rest of the evening. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors don’t share in the luxury of enjoying a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. Food insecurity is a major issue in the country and in our communities. According to a report released by the United States Department of Agriculture in 2009, 16.7 million children live in food insecure households. The USDA also reports that one in six adults are suffering from hunger. Food insecurity can make the holidays a time of stress, anxiety, and sadness for families struggling in this tough economic climate. The high unemployment rate and cutting of food programs exacerbate the situation. The Northern Lehigh Food Bank at 7884 Center St. in Emerald is facing a shortfall in meat (and other food) donations for the holidays. They currently need meat for households that have three to nine members. Any type of protein is fine, including chicken, ham,

Page 3

turkey, pork, beef, and fish. They will also accept any type of non-perishable food for Christmas distribution. The food donations are needed by Friday, Dec. 13. The NL Food Bank is also calling for volunteers to help on Saturday, Dec. 14 during the Christmas distribution from 9 to 11 a.m. Donations to the NL Food Bank can also be dropped off at the Town & Country Gazette offices at 4685 Lehigh Drive in Walnutport. If you are interested in donating or volunteering, you can get more information by calling the food bank at 610-767-9525. The NL Food Bank is by no means the only area distribution center that needs volunteers and donations this time of year. If you are fortunate enough to have any extra food or time, please consider sharing it with your local food pantry and help your neighbors in need.

Lehighton mother offering HALOS to suicide survivors By Danielle Tepper Editor’s Note: Nov. 23, 2013 is International Survivors of Suicide Day. Wanting to spread awareness, Gail Strohl reached out to a number of local media outlets in an attempt to share her story and let people know that she is willing to lend the listening ear that she could not find herself six years ago. The Town & Country Gazette is the only one that responded. Gail Strohl lost her youngest of five children on August 27, 2007. At age 20, Kyle Strohl “had it made at Kyle Strohl the time,” according to his mother. He was in his own band, he had a car, a girlfriend, and a job, and yet, he took his own life that day for reasons that are still a mystery to his family. In the wake of her loss, Strohl found she had nowhere to turn. Her grief and frustration led her to the eventual conception of her self-run support group, HALOS (Hope After a Loved One’s Suicide). Strohl said it took three years before she could even get on her feet. “I basically went to work and came home and that’s all I could do,” she explained. “Thank God I had to go to work, because it made me get out of bed every day. You just don’t want to function.” When she finally started searching for resources, Strohl found nothing. “Carbon County Mental Health didn’t seem to want to help because suicide is something so difficult, they always assume the victim was mentally ill.

To my friend, A new neighbor moved into the house by my grandparents' farm. They had a son the same age as me. We played when I visited. The next year, we moved there too. My friend and I were inseparable. We rode the bus together, later were scouts, and later were Best Man at each other's weddings. We kept in touch, although our lives differed. Our work sent us both to the Steel. When it was closing, my friend was injured. We became close again. Our friendship never faltered. Last week, my friend left this world ... Goodbye, Bruce.

Meet the Staff Forget the turkey, Thanksgiving is

all about the delicious side dishes! What’s a traditional accompaniment that has a spot on your table each and every year—and are you willing to share the recipe? Danielle Tepper, Publishing Assistant: I’m rarely allowed in the kitchen, especially on holidays, but in between the Macy’s parade and our family’s arrival, I try to help where I can. For as long as I can remember, my mom has made broccoli casserole. Not exactly high on my list of favorite vegetables, this cheesy concoction (complete with Ritz crackers!) manages to be a delicious addition every single year. 1/2 stick butter 2 eggs 1 can cream of mushroom soup 16 crushed Ritz crackers 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 2 packages chopped frozen broccoli, thawed Combine butter, soup and eggs in blender. Combine thawed broccoli with cheese in casserole dish. Pour blender mixture over and stir. Sprinkle with crushed cracker crumbs. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for one hour. Joe Korba, Associate Publisher: I still go to my mom’s place for holiday meals, and thus don’t have much of a hand in preparing anything. I do, however, like to create my own WaWa “Gobbler” sandwich knock-off with the leftovers. Two big pieces of Italian bread (or paska, if you want to get fancy with it) with pretty much any leftovers from the Thanksgiving table—turkey, stuffing, gravy, and the essential ingredient that ties it all together, cranberry sauce—in between. So. Good. Alice Wanamaker, Publishing Assistant: Alice: Thanksgiving is by far, my most favorite day of the year. It’s the one time all year when overeating is partially accepted and sweatpants at the dinner table are almost expected! Traditionally, I haven’t been the one to cook the main or side dishes. Besides the filling and gravy and the bird itself, my favorite Thanksgiving side dish is homemade Continued on Page 6

Meet the Staff Continued from Page 5 macaroni and cheese. Admittedly, it is a little unconventional for such a big meal, but you can’t go wrong with mac & cheese— even those at the kids’ table love this one!  1 box of elbow macaroni 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 stick of butter or margarine 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 cup grated white American cheese 1/2 cup milk 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large pot, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain noodles and return them to the pot and

stir in the butter or margarine until melted. Stir in onion and garlic salt. Combine cheese in separate bowl. Add half of cheese mixture to noodles. Add the milk mixture to the pot with the macaroni. Stir until combined. Spoon into greased 8” baking pan. Spread bread crumbs over noodles. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the cheese on top is golden brown.  Donna Bachman, Accounting Manager: Every year for the past ten years or more, my family gets together one weekend and makes pumpkin rolls prior to Thanksgiving Day. We make enough for all of us to enjoy for the holiday parties and festivities coming up through the end of the year. Our annual Pumpkin Roll Day this year was on Sunday, Nov. 3. We accomplished 24 pumpkin rolls in less than five hours including clean-up. Pumpkin Roll: 3 eggs 1 cup sugar 2/3 cup pumpkin 3/4 cup flour 1 tsp baking powder 2 tsp cinnamon Filling: 4 tbsp of butter 8 ounces cream cheese 1 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla Beat the eggs and sugar until creamy. Line cookie sheet with wax paper. Pour roll mix onto sheet and spread evenly. Sprinkle with one cup

of nuts (optional). Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes until toothpick is clean. Roll with wax paper on and let cool in roll position. When cooled off, unroll and spread with filling mixture. Roll up again and wrap in saran wrap and then tin foil. Freeze until you are ready to serve. Cut frozen in slices. Tony Pisco, Art Director: My grandmother would always make sugar cookies for my brother and I to eat after the Thanksgiving meal was completed.  It was a great reminder that Christmas was soon on its way. Although, it was quite rare for the cookies to make it all the way to Christmas! Tyler Trumbauer, Staff Writer: Side dishes are probably more important than turkey to me and my going away favorite is mashed potatoes. I could eat them with any main dish in any meal. Typically, I try to sample as many side dishes as my plate can hold and if I run out of space, I get a second plate!

We would also like to thank the Lehigh Township restaurants who generously donated the certificates: The Oaks Restaurant at Woodstone Country Club, Pizza Como North, Pennsville Tavern and Stagecoach Stop, Blue Mountain Drive-In, and Mama’s Pizza. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards our continued development of outdoor recreational opportunities in and around the township for people of all ages. In January 2014, we will be having a membership drive and pizza party. This event will enable you to learn all about us. In the spring of 2014, we will be having a grand opening of a picnic area at Lock 25 along the Walnutport Canal. Watch for information about each of these events in future editions of this publication. For more information about our organization, call 610-767-0676.

Domestic Short Hair & Calico Mix Adult • Female • Medium

Forgotten Felines and Fidos, Germansville

If you want constant companionship and a loving lap cat, then I am the gal for you. I also like sleeping on the shelf of the TV stand or in a cardboard box. I get along with most other cats and sometimes play with the kittens in the shelter house. Sometimes I like to have my quiet time in the office. I was born in 2003, but I have many good years ahead! I was rescued as a tiny kitten. A nice lady adopted me and loved me very much, but then a few years ago, she lost her job and her home and had to return me to the shelter. I am spayed, up to date on shots, and Leuk neg. Please call the shelter: 610-760-9009 or 610-737-4057. House trained • Spayed/Neutered Shots Current

Area Agency on Aging Warns of IRS Scam

Submitted by Rachael Murray The Northampton County Area Agency on Aging today warned older adults about a new phone scam targeting taxpayers.

Accepting Applications Lincoln Manor Apartments One and Two BR Apartments plus One BR Accessible Apartments Security Deposit, One year Lease, and Income Verifications required. Call or write: Lincoln Manor, 320 Oak St. Walnutport, PA 18088 610-767-9232 TDD 711

Managed by: Grosse and Quade Management Co. 215-855-8700

Page 25

In this scam, victims are told they owe money to the Internal Revenue Service, which must be paid immediately through a pre-loaded debit card or a wire transfer. If the victim declines to cooperate, they are threatened with arrest or suspension of their driver’s license. Scammers use fake common names. They may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number. They may make your Caller ID appear as if the call is coming from the IRS toll-free number. The IRS will never ask for your credit card number on the telephone nor do they request payment by a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. In fact, contact by the IRS with a taxpayer with a tax issue is very likely to be by mail.

Too often we forget the meaning of the word “Thanksgiving.” Overwhelmed by the amount of eating to come and shopping soon to follow, we forget to simply give thanks. So this year, take a moment to reflect on the good things in your life and be grateful for the people sitting around your table. From all of us here at the Gazette, we’re thankful for you, our loyal readers. Happy Thanksgiving! 

id You Know? Over 45 million turkeys are consumed annually on Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving was overlooked when Hollywood rolled out the holiday movies. Between Halloween and Christmas, the family-friendly day usually sits in the shadows of the Sanderson sisters and Buddy the Elf. In fact, many movies that play on Thanksgiving have already jumped ahead a month. (Remember when there used to be a 24-hour marathon of “A Christmas Story?”) Films set around Thanksgiving are usually just fodder for family dysfunction schtick (see: Jack & Jill, National Lampoon’s Thanksgiving Family Reunion, etc). So what should you watch on Turkey Day?

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade NBC 9 a.m.—12 p.m.

A longtime tradition, the Manhattan event first aired in 1924. Approximately 3.5 million New Yorkers line the streets to catch a glimpse of the iconic balloons, plus an additional 50 million tune in at home. This year, the 87th annual kick-off to the holiday season will include performances by Kellie Pickler, Gavin DeGraw, Fall Out Boy, and much more, plus the usual array of marching bands, floats, and dance groups, topped off with a special visit from ol’ St. Nick himself.

SNACKS

Pilgrim hat cookies: Turn Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies upside down. Use colored piped frosting to stick on and decorate an upside-down mini Reese’s cup. Pumpkin pie slice cookies: Using Pillsbury’s Perfectly Pumpkin Cookie Mix, slice the dough before baking to make mini pie-shaped wedges. Paint with orange icing and use pipe tips to decorate.

DECORATIONS

To make your Thanksgiving table festive, pumpkins and gourds come in handy as both candle holders and makeshift vases. Hollowed out pumpkins can be stuffed with flowers, while mini gourds are perfect for little tealights.

Thanksgiving is, of course, all too quickly followed by the busiest shopping day of the year—and it’s not called “Black” Friday for nothing. Everyone is full and cranky and they’ve been standing in line for a 50% off flatscreen

Ready to shop ‘til you drop?

for approximately two hours while their screaming children snatch toys from every shelf. So be prepared. Below are some tips and tricks for suriviving the stressful sales. 1. Keep the road rage to a minimum. Take a deep

breath and be prepared for somewhat of a hike between your warm car and your shopping destination. 2. Have a plan. Map out where you want to go ahead of time, then get in and get out.

3. Don’t be lured in by “doorbusters.” It’s usually not as good a deal as advertised and a better alternative can be found with some selective sleuthing. 4. Be nice. It goes a long way, especially when tempers are high and people are walking around with dollar signs in their eyes. 5. Remember that there is still a month left to shopping season. That perfect thing for that special someone doesn’t need to be found that very minute. Use Black Friday primarily as a way to gather ideas and pick up a few cheap stocking stuffers. Your blood pressure will thank you.

fence, the stump fence [usually around a wood lot on the farm, from tree stumps] and the hedge fence. We want to keep a picture of those fences in our head, so if they fall into ruin, that we can still see them in our mind and can appreciate them. Hallicher Beddaag zu eich all! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

When we drive round about the country in fall to see the pretty leaves, we can’t help but still look to see the old fences here about, which have done a great service years ago, but now are no longer considered as something valuable for the farm. Fences were put up for three reasons: to keep the cattle in the field; to divide the farm in parcels to grow different crops; and third, to let the neighbors know how far every farmer’s land went. Of all the old fences, that still survive, the stone wall fence is the nicest of all to me. I believe they are the oldest fences we can find. They were sturdy and served their purpose many years. The stones needed to be pick up from the land to farm it. A stone fence was made by the farmer, who picked the stone up from the field and dumped them off out along the field. That is a stone row fence. And the farmer, who wanted to make his place look a little nice, built the stone up nicely in a wall for a “stone wall fence”. The fence was built ‘dry’, without mortar.

November 14, 1957

This week we want to acknowledge the old stake fences. This type of fence was many times called the worm fence. An English word, this we could say, is zig-zag fence. To me it looks like a ‘from here to there’ or ‘over here to over there’ fence. This type of fence took a lot of work to put up. The fence that made the least work was the brush fence. There were always much underbrush and little trees growing up [in the fence row] and the farmer left them stand, and that we called the brush fence. Later the farmer started putting up the post fences. It was a lot of work to make the fence rails and posts. This was a job done through the winter, so they were ready when spring came around. Later came the time when the farmer bought wire and nailed it to the posts. And the fence to make the place look nice was the clapboard or picket fence around the yard. It was regularly white-washed. O sure, we can still remember the common board fence, the wood slab fence [rough cuts from timber], and the beautiful cast iron fence around the yard, the rail

Extra Point by Tyler Trumbauer

Snyder leading the Perfect Storm at Northwestern

Northwestern Lehigh football has come full circle. The Tigers went from a team that was 3-7 last fall to a squad that played in week 12 this season. Northwestern, led by second-year head coach Josh Snyder, climbed out of the Colonial League basement and returned from District 11 oblivion to finish the regular season 7-3 that ended with an upset overtime victory over then undefeated Catasauqua 28-27. That resume qualified the Tigers for the AA Eastern Conference playoffs as the top seed in the north as they defeated Nanticoke Area 50-21. Northwestern then took the EC championship with a 19-18 win over North Schuylkill last week. “They have come such a long way,” said Snyder. “They matured not only physically, but mentally and grew as a team with their commitment.

The confidence has just “They have come such a long touchdowns in that week 10 been tremendous and you can way. They matured not only victory over Catty.

Joke Corner

A turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get-together. "Well, I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs!" They all asked the farmer how it tasted. "I don't know," said the farmer. "I never could catch the darn thing!" Asked to write a composition entitled, "What I'm Thankful for on Thanksgiving," a student wrote, "I am thankful that I'm not a turkey."

“I played on 5-5 and 3-7 teams before and you can tell a huge difference between this team and those teams,” he said. “This team clicks more and gels more. We want to work hard and that has helped us get some more wins this season.” The 6’3” and 305-lb. Storm has come a long way himself after suffering from GuillainBore Syndrome, an immune system disorder, his sophomore year which caused temporary paralysis. He recovered and came back stronger and has dominated the Colonial League as he was named First-Team All-League at the guard position and Honorable Mention at defensive tackle for 2013. Currently the senior, who according to Snyder is “a warrior that everyone would want to have,” is weighing his post-high school options as he is fielding offers from division-one schools such as Penn State, Rutgers, Lehigh and Villanova. His football career will continue, but the high school chapter concluded with not a clear-cut favorite moment, according to him. “It really is a tie between the Catty and the Northern Lehigh games [from this season]. We beat our rivals, which is awesome, and that was a great win also,” he explained. “Then we also beat

an undefeated team which was huge for us. They both were great and I can’t pick between them.” Snyder is taking a lot away from this triumphant return: “[I took away from this season] a lot of things that I know already. Like our great community or our strong and hardworking kids. They listen to the coaches. We have a great time with them. For them to come out and be successful was great. It shows the kids what hard work, dedication and commitment will do.” He continued, “It is just a turning point for this program with the seniors and for what this program has done. For the Northwestern Tigers, we had three seasons in a row where we were .500 or below. For them to have a winning season and spin us in the right direction is great. This is a springboard into the offseason. I’m just proud of the guys.” Snyder has drawn the full circle of the program and is now ready to build it up to new heights.

HALOS Continued from Page 4 That’s not always the case,” she explained. “People don’t want to hear that; they think you’re in denial. Our son was not mentally ill. He was not suffering from depression. Everything was working and for some reason, we don’t know why, not even today, we don’t know why he did this.” The Carbon County coroner’s report in 2012 showed that there were 16 suicides that year. “Oh, but they don’t think we have a problem in our area,” said Strohl. “People just don’t want to talk about it; it scares them. They think if you say the word ‘suicide,’ it’s going to start a trend. People don’t want to recognize the issue and it’s frustrating.” According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collects data about mortality in the U.S., including deaths by suicide. In 2010 (the most recent year for which data are available), 38,364 suicides were reported, making suicide the 10th leading cause of death for Americans. In that year, someone in the country died by suicide every 13.7 minutes.” With these facts in mind, Strohl can’t understand

why more people aren’t willing to reach out and help. Having nothing for themselves and not knowing where to go, Strohl and her husband started their own outlet. “Statistics say suicide leaves six people behind who are seriously affected, not just family members,” said Strohl. Strohl knew there had to be people in the area who needed help just as she had. So with most of her own money and free time, she did all the legwork to get HALOS set up. After going through AFSP’s facilitator training, she held her first meeting in August of 2011. Around 10 people showed up. “And I was hoping for one,” said Strohl. Over the past two years or so, she’s met people coming from all different situations, all with their own stories to tell. “There are people at every meeting, which I always say is terrible,” Strohl said. She believes there are probably more out there who need to talk to someone, but they are afraid to show up, due to “the shame of it.” Strohl’s ultimate goal is to raise awareness and Continued on Page 47

HALOS Continued from Page 44 start some action in the community, while also continuing to reach families who have been left behind, because she understands their pain. “Unless you’ve gone through it, you don’t know,” she said. “The majority of us don’t know why and we don’t understand and we live with that torment for the longest time. You run so much through your head, like did I miss signs? Could I have prevented it?” It helps her to know how much she’s already helped people since HALOS began. “I don’t look for anything in return, but I’ve had people make me soup or bake me something, and to me, that’s worth a million bucks,” she said. “I know the gratitude is there. It means a lot, I know I’m doing something right.” HALOS has formed a community all its own, which can help when families start to feel alone. Strohl said even she and her husband lost friends in the wake of Kyle’s death. “They see it and they don’t know what to do or how to react so they go the other way; they don’t talk to you,” explained Strohl. “It’s a suicide. It’s still like, almost in the dark ages, it’s a bad word. They don’t want to upset you. But if we don’t talk about them, who will? I don’t want him forgotten. He will always be here.” Kyle still lived at home when he died. Strohl said he was her “easiest” child. “He was so low maintenance. He was responsible. He was just a sweet, tender-hearted person with a wild side. He never wanted us to be mad at him. The last thing he did in his life … I’m very mad at him. I always say that when I die, I’ll hit him and then I’ll hug him.” HALOS meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at Lehighton Hospital at 7 p.m. For more information, call Gail Strohl at 610-377-2035 or her co-facilitator Dolores Delaney at 610-377-3940.

NL Little Theatre presents all-female ‘Odd Couple’ adaptation Story and photos by Danielle Tepper This past weekend, NL Little Theatre held their production of Neil Simon’s popular comedy, “The Odd Couple”—but with a feminine twist! Senior Lydia DeLong portrayed Olive Madison, the slob who takes in her uptight friend in need, Florence Unger, played by junior Alexis Middaugh. While the program doesn’t mention whether either of the girls plans to pursue acting throughout their college careers, it’s safe to say they both have the talent to consider it. The girls’ chemistry shows the yin and yang of friendship; they butt heads in hilarious ways as each tries to adjust to living together while battling their own romantic demons: Unger is nearsuicidal after her marriage falls apart. Madison has an ex-husband constantly asking for money and she finds she can’t say no to him because he does so like “Orphan Annie in a snowstorm.” The female version was written by Neil Simon in 1985, but one has to wonder if director Nicholas Sander didn’t take some liberties with tweaking the script to reflect our modern times—with references to tweeting, the Jonas Brothers and the Kardashians—for a few laughs.

Brie Williams, Taylor Duplaga, Sandra Moran, and Victoria Oquendo fleshed out the group of girls as the duo’s close friends who gather regularly for drinks and competitive rounds of Trivial Pursuit. Easily the most comical portion of the play came with the arrival of the Costazuela brothers (replacing the Pidgeon sisters from the original version). Jacob Heintzelman as Manolo and Gavin Fricker as Jesus brought the house down with their comedic give-and-take laced with, of course, their snappy Spanish accents.
