Mei Liewe Freind,

Verschpreche maucht Schulde. Promises make debts.

En foox farleered si hore over net si nauba. A fox loses its hair but not his cunning.

Circle of Seasons vows to return

Phil Arnold of Circle of Seasons Charter School addressed the board during the public comment period of the Aug. 15 meeting of Northwestern Lehigh School directors.

The resolution to approve or deny the charter was on the evening's agenda.

"One of the things we hold sacred is free thinking and entrepreneurship," Arnold said. "A 1997 state law provided for choice in school systems. When there is a niche, it is to be filled."

In 1919, the only school in Germany was the Waldorf, the method of teaching proposed by the charter school, he explained.

Board discusses park's purpose

Following an executive session for litigation matters, Lynn Township supervisors heard Stan Kelson's request for practice fields at Ontelaunee Park for lacrosse.

On Aug. 9 he told supervisors at their meeting, the team has to travel 30 miles to get a place to play.

He said there are two areas that could be turned into a lacrosse field with little excavating: the parking lot at the end of the old pavilion and the area along Route 143 where the old swimming pool was located.

Parents of lacrosse players would help with the work creating a playing field, he said.
