2u Fund founder pays visit to DMS Program teaches children how to help less fortunate on their birthdays. By ELIZABETH BAUMEIUSTER ebaumeister @theabingtonjournal.com

Dallas Middle School sixthgrade students learned about an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others on their birthdays during a special assembly Jan. 14 in the school auditorium. Richie Kraus, a seventhgrade student at Wyoming Seminary and founder of the “2u Fund: So Every Child Can Have a Happy Birthday,” spoke about the history of the program and how to get involved. At the beginning, Kraus asked students, “What are your favorite things about your birthdays?” Answers ranged from cake to presents to parties. Afterwards, student Zach Palfey said his favorite thing to do on his birthday is “get with family and friends and party.” Kraus explained when he was 6 years old, he helped his school collect Christmas presents for underprivileged children. He recalled asking his mother, “What do poor kids do on their birthdays?” It was that thought that inspired the 2u Fund, which Kraus founded at age 7. He explained the 2u Fund works by providing stickers through the Luzerne Foundation to children for use on their birthday party invitations. The stickers request that instead of gifts, invitees make small donations to the fund. “It’s really easy,” he told the assembly. “Anyone can do it -

even you.” Now 12, Kraus will soon celebrate his bar mitzvah, a comingof-age ceremony in the Jewish religion, and is promoting participation in the 2u Fund as part of his mitzvah, or good deed project. His spiritual leader, Rabbi Roger Lerner, of Temple B’nai B’rith in Kingston, introduced Kraus at the beginning of the assembly, speaking briefly to the students about what Jewish education is like. After his speech, Kraus answered several questions from students about the fund and how to get involved. He also left See DMS, Page 11

Party for a good cause T

he Seventh Annual Community Cares for Kids Carnivale was held Jan. 19 at the Westmoreland Club in Wilkes-Barre. The event benefits an organization founded by plastic surgeon Dr. Francis Collini and his wife, Susan, of Shavertown. Since 1977, Dr. Collini and a medical team have gone to Ecuador each year to operate on children desperately in need of Mike Biglow and Flora Franconi, of Harveys Lake, enjoy the evening. corrective surgery. They work around the clock for a week every summer, taking with them not only medical personnel but all medical and surgical supplies. In 2006, with the opening of a new ambulatory surgery center in Shavertown, Dr. Collini and the volunteers have expanded their humanitarian mission by bringing children from other parts of the world to the Back Mountain facility.

Can someone help repair sign? By DOTTY MARTIN dmartin@mydallaspost.com

CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK/ FOR THE DALLAS POST

This highway sign on Route 415 in Dallas near the entrance to the Elmcrest Development is in need of repair.

Rev. Jim Pall is upset. Every day on his way to work as chaplain at the State Correctional Institute at Dallas, he passes the sign on the Dallas Highway in front of the Elmcrest Development. And every day, he notices the sign is in need or repair. He would like to see someone take on repair of the sign as a project. Rev. Pall, whose mother, Jean Marie Pall, was the justice of the peace in the Back Mountain at one time, remembers when the sign was erected. Because there were so

many accidents on the highway at the time and so many people were either injured or killed in those accidents, Pall thought, for the longest time, that the sign was erected to honor them. It wasn’t until he became a young man that he came to understand the sign pays homage to service men and women, first responders and the heroic. Rev. Pall and The Dallas Post are seeking someone – perhaps a high school student working on a senior completion project or a Boy Scout hoping to earn his Eagle Scout badge – to take on repair of

this sign as their project. But we’re wondering – who erected the sign in the first place, who funded it and who owns the land where it sits? If you can answer any of these questions or you’re interested in taking on the repair of the sign, call The Dallas Post at 675-5211 and we’ll help you get started.

PEZ DISPENSERS ON DISPLAY

YOUR SPACE Carl Schickner, of Second Street, Harveys Lake, took this picture of one of the bird feeders in her yard during a recent snowfall. Carol said it was so nice to look out the window and see snow on the roof of the feeder.

Seven-year-old Olivia Stevens, daughter of Melissa and Michael Stevens, of Dallas, will display her PEZ collection at the Back Mountain Memorial Lbrary in February. A second-grade student at Apple Tree/Susquehanna School, Olivia has been collecting PEZ candy dispensers for six years and began when she started receiving them as gifts. Her mom informs us that PEZ candies were first made in Austria as a breath mint in 1927. The word comes from the German word, pfefferminz, for peppermint. The mints were originally made for adults to discourage smoking and it was not until the 1950s that the company started to market the candy in fruit flavors for children. The original dispensers were a Santa, a robot and a space gun. Olivia has over 50 dispensers in her collection and said, “I like them because I don’t waste them and I can keep them and use them as toys.” She also likes the candy very much. One of the dispensers is a giant Barbie Pez. Her favorite is a Rudolph plush “because his nose is cute.”

Members will vote on titles of books to read for the coming year and then attend meetings ready to discuss their opinions of the selected titles. The Book Discussion Club will be open to all ages and anyone interested in joining this free group should call the library at 6751182. Start jotting down any favorite titles that you may want to recommend to the club for its first selection.

70 YEARS AGO - 1943

Holders of “C” and “B” gasoline rationing books for occupational driving to and from work are urged by Fred M. Kiefer, chairman, Dallas War Price and Rationing Board, to take immediate steps to join in some form of ride sharing program, if they live within reasonable distance of bus lines and hope to retain these books. Howard W. Risely and H. Austin Snyder, members of the gasoline rationing panel on the local board, have said that hundreds of drivers in this area are making no attempt to share their cars with others or to join in ride sharing groups even though their work is within reasonable distance of public transportation and their homes are located within a stone’s throw of Wilkes-Barre Railway Company busses. Shad N. Goss, Dallas Township School Director, assumed his new duties this week as sergeant-at-arms at the State Capitol in Harrisburg. The appointment is on a per diem basis and comes as recognition for his years of service as a member of the Republican Party. Representative Harold Flack made the appointment. Information for “Only Yesterday” is taken from back copies of the Dallas Post which is 121 years old. The information here is printed exactly as it originally appeared.

This pizza has been ‘perfect’ for a long time By ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER ebaumeister @theabingtonjournal.com

Antique typewriters, vintagestyle tin canisters, model cars and various trinkets line a wooden shelf, above which a largescale model train travels around a track attached to the wall. People of all ages sit at cozy booths lining the walls and evenly-spaced tables and chairs fill the center of the room. The nostalgic sense of tradition which lingers in the atmosphere at Pizza Perfect, 16 Carverton Road, Trucksville, is reflected not only in the décor but in the food as well. According to managers Janine Hudak, 47, and Tammy Lemelin, 42, sisters from Shavertown, the restaurant still uses the recipes it did when it opened in 1975. Its signature is onions placed on top of the sauce, as well as the method of frying pizza in oil covering the bottom of the pan as it bakes in the oven. Hudak said the restaurant also always uses the same ingredients, refusing to switch, even if an alternative becomes available at a lower price. “That’s what we strive for - consistency,” she said, adding that the decorations are consistent with the owners’ love for “the old days” and “the meaningful things.” The business is owned by the sisters’ father, Richard Adamchick, and his business partner, Myron Mickiewicz. Hudak and Lemelin both have

Ashley Dunbar making a name for herself on court Dallas High School senior guides Lady Mountaineers from point guard position. By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Ashley Dunbar has shown she can rack up impressive personal numbers in athletic competition. In her senior season, Dunbar is leading Dallas in another way, guiding an extremely balanced attack as the point guard for a basketball team that has established itself as a serious contender for a pair of titles. “She’s distributing the ball more, which is fine by me because she passes well and has good vision on the court,” Dallas coach Kelly Johnson said of Dunbar. Dunbar and fellow returning first-team, all-star Tanner Englehart have been trading the scoring lead on a team that has five players averaging between seven and 10 points per game. That list includes Talia Szatkowski, who piled up 26 points and 14 steals Monday night in a 57-55 victory over Wyoming Valley West, as well as Jessica Hiscox and Samantha Missal. “This year, my state of mind is everyone can do everything,” Dunbar said. “Everyone in our starting lineup can score. It’s harder for teams to defend us.” It is Dunbar’s responsibility to make sure the ball winds up in the hands of the player with the best chance of producing points. “It’s whatever the game situation presents,” Johnson said. “Some games, she has more opportunity to score. I’ve never felt like she was a selfish player. She’s a team player. She reads opposing teams and makes the best of whatever that situation is.” The Dallas offense has been running well under Dunbar’s control. The Lady Mountaineers moved up to Division 1 of the Wyoming Valley Conference this season and made it through the first half of that schedule tied with Crestwood for the best record at 6-1. That performance also left Dallas tied for third among 18 teams battling for seeding position in the District 2 Class AAA playoffs.

“She has tremendous drive and determination. She has a no-quit attitude. You can always count on her to go after it. She’s in attack-mode most of the time and that’s how she plays on the basketball court.”

Kelly Johnson DHS girls basketball coach

Running a balanced offense shows Dunbar’s willingness to adjust her style of play on the court and as an athlete in general. She averaged 13.1 points per game a year ago when she was the WVC Division 2 Player of the Year. In the fall, after leaving behind an all-state career in field hockey when the WVC moved soccer away from a spring schedule for the first time, Dunbar again earned Pennsylvania State Soccer Coaches Association All-State honors. She had started since her freshman season in both sports. “It was a really tough decision because I do love both sports and I loved both teams,” said Dunbar, who is close to the conclusion of her athletic days before going to study pharmacy at Temple University. Dunbar scored 52 goals and assisted on 12 others this fall. She ended her career as the all-time scoring leader in the highly successful Dallas girls soccer program with 114 goals. Johnson has seen what makes Dunbar such an explosive player on the soccer field. “She has tremendous drive and determination,” Johnson said. “She has a no-quit attitude. You can always count on her to go after it. She’s in attack-mode most of the time and that’s how she plays on the basketball court.” That drive has made Dunbar one of the conference’s top basketball players despite all the time she has put into being one of the state’s top soccer players. “She’s a busy kid,” Johnson said. “We like to take advantage of any opportunity to get in the gym

Knights take advantage of strength and opponents’ error Lake-Lehman grabs 31-28 wrestling victory over arch-rival Dallas. By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Lake-Lehman and Dallas took a break from their respective Wyoming Valley Conference divisional races Monday night to battle for Back Mountain bragging rights. Derek Dragon, Brady Butler and Josh Sayre provided key decisions but Lake-Lehman also took advantage of a Dallas coaching error and wrestlers avoiding giving up extra team points in losses while pulling out a 31-28 victory over the host Mountaineers. This is the second straight close win for the Black Knights in the annual battle with their biggest rival. Lake-Lehman pulled out a 32-31 win over Dallas a year ago. “It was a team effort,” LakeLehman coach Tom Williams said in a telephone interview after the match. “There were some key spots where we didn’t give up more than three team points.” One of those came in the closing 145-pound bout when Steve Mingey of Dallas shut out Josh

Lake-Lehman took a 13-9 lead after five bouts with the help of a clerical error by Dallas and two wrestlers avenging earlier defeats. Winters, 7-0, but could not get the pin he needed to tie the team score and give the Mountaineers the victory on a tiebreaker. Lake-Lehman took a 13-9 lead after five bouts with the help of a clerical error by Dallas and two wrestlers avenging earlier defeats. Tommy Williams, the son of Lake-Lehman’s coach, received a forfeit to open the bout when Dallas coach Mike Richards mistakenly presented a wrestler who was ineligible at the 152-pound weight class because he did not weigh in at a high enough weight. Zach Macosky pulled out an overtime win for Dallas at 160, but Dragon answered with an 11-3 win over Logan Brace at 170. After Kris Roccograndi received a forfeit for Dallas to cut the deficit to a point, Brady Butler defeated Connor Martinez, 14-7, in a rematch of a Wyoming Valley Conference Championships final. “He was a little more mentally focused and wrestled more aggressively on his feet this time,” coach Williams said of Butler’s

victory. Dallas won the next three bouts that were wrestled on the mat during a stretch in which each team picked up a forfeit. The Mountaineers emerged with a 25-19 lead on decisions by Mark Michno (220) and Ryan Monk (285) and a major decision by Aaron Klimovich (120) for the only bonus point captured by a Dallas wrestler. Dominic DeGraba of Dallas picked up a forfeit at113 while Rebecca Wright earned one for Lake-Lehman at 106. Zeb McMillan started the Lake-Lehman comeback by pulling out an overtime decision at 126. Unbeaten Austin Harry then put Lake-Lehman back in front by coming up with a pin in the first minute at 132 on a night that he called the biggest match of the season for the team. Josh Sayre, who produced a pin in the final bout to rally the Black Knights to the one-point victory over Dallas last season, again came through for LakeSee KNIGHTS, Page 10

MU cheerleaders are fourth best The Misericordia University cheerleading team finished fourth at the Universal Cheerleading Association National Championships on Jan. 19 at the HP Field House at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. The Cougars of coaches Tara Sinclair and Courtney Coletti entered the final round in fifth place, but moved ahead of Riverside (CA) City College to place fourth and record their second consecutive top five finish. Misericordia advanced to the finals, thanks in part to a perfect crowd score in the semifinal round. “I am incredibly proud of this

young team,” said Sinclair, whose squad featured 10 team members making their first appearance at nationals. “Our upperclassmen, especially seniors Alyssa McEntee and Amber Schmidt, did an amazing job guiding our first-year members.” “Each year, the team improves its competitive ability and this year was no different,” said Schmidt, a team captain. “Our team put a really solid and difficult routine together this year. The growth I have experienced and witnessed during my time at MU is indescribable. We proved that with dedication, hard-work and determination goals are achievable.”

Members of the Misericordia University cheerleading squad are, from left, first row, Alyssa McEntee, Amber Schmidt, Jessica Mierzejewski, Nicole Grim, Darlene Poust, Erica Moore. Second row, Cara Hill, Alysha Marzani, Alyssa Auer, Emily Ritterbeck, Danica Kuti, Sarah Richard, and Brittany DeLancey. Third row, Jerica Gariano, Kelsey Wolsiefer, Megan Zelonis, Brianna Oswald, Jessica Reuther, Gina Baiamonte, Mallory Loughman and Kelly Keener.

Students Ethan Zawatski and Emily Farrell each expressed interest in the 2u Fund and said they would consider getting involved. Zawatski said he thought Kraus did well speaking and the 2u Fund is “a great thing to do for the community.” Farrell agreed, saying, “I think it’s a wonderful idea for the community to work together.” Zawatski added that, in the past, he helped with a different community service which provides food to families for Thanksgiving. He likes the idea of doing something for children for their birthdays because it’s something different. “I think it’s a very original idea,” he said, “and I would definitely think about participating.”

The zoning fee will be increased to $40 per year, while the borough garbage fee remains at $195 per year. The contractor’s license fee will be reinstated at $125 for 2013. During the past two years, there has been no fee but, according to councilperson Boice, “We have been looking for ways to generate revenue…so there is less that has to be put on the homeowners.” Boice added that “almost of the surrounding communities” have a contractor’s license fee. The $125 annual fee is to be paid by businesses to operate within Harveys Lake boundaries. The next council meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19.
