Cops: A.H. student threatens mom with gun BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

A Clarks Summit teen, truant from school, approached his mother with a gun after an argument, according to police. Mark Drutarovsky, 19, Clarks Summit was charged May 11with aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person.

According to the police affidavit, Drutarovsky’s mother, Michelle Plunkett told South Abington Twp. police officer Leonard K. Harvey that her son has been “skipping school a lot lately.” Plunkett approached Officer Harvey at the intersection of Ransom Road and Skyline Drive after she fled the residence, 12002 Creek Road, where Plunkett said Drutarovsky was living

with his grandparents. Plunkett told police she fled after her son grabbed a rifle from his room there, loaded a round into the chamber, pointed it at her and threatened to shoot her. She said they were involved in an argument. Police said they retrieved an unloaded shotgun and rifle, along with another shotgun, from the Creek Road residence after a search, but

were unable to locate a pistol which Plunkett believed should also be at the residence. According to the affidavit, South Abington Twp. police officer Thomas Ksiazek was able to make contact with Drutarovsky who agreed to meet Ksiazek at a South Abington Twp. park. Ksiazek then took Drutarovsky into custody and transported him to police headquarters.

bug to travel again. From January through April she traveled 26,000 miles, not including the time spent on buses, in a journey that took her to Buenos Aires, Argentina; Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and Beijing, China. Vietz spent four months, or the equivalent of a full semester, enrolled in a study abroad program known as “Pitt MAP,” through the University of Pittsburgh, where she recently completed her junior year and is majoring in international studies and communications. The theme for this year’s trip was sustainable development and her classes and studies while away focused on writing, literature,

economy, politics and ecology. “I’ve wanted to study abroad. I’ve wanted to travel and while I was looking at colleges, I would spend hours looking at study abroad pictures instead of the actual facts about the school. I didn’t know where I wanted to go,” said Vietz. Her first stop was Buenos Aires, where she took tango lessons and “awesome” tours of landmarks including the Casa Rosada, which Vietz noted is similar to our White House and also where Evita spoke. “…But two of my favorite weekends of the entire trip were spent outside the city- the weekend at Iguazú Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the

world, and at an estancia (an old gaucho ranch) outside the city, where we kayaked, rode horses, had home cooked meals, invented ‘bike polo’ and looked at thousands of stars on the dock at night,” said Vietz. In Prague, she attended an opera at the “Rudolfinum,” and warmed up with “a thick chocolate drink when we took a tour of the castle in one -degree weather.” Vietz said she enjoyed the side trips as well. “Especially to Slavonice, the little 1,000-yearold village on the border of Czech and Austria, where the Iron Curtain used to be.

Relay for Life of the Abingtons

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a purple toilet bowl BY KELLY MCDONOUGH Abington Journal Correspondent

Don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning to find a purple toilet parked in your front yard. It’s all a part of the Relay for Life fundraiser. The members of the household who finds themselves with a toilet on their lawn have to make a donation to get the toilet removed. Better still, they can also make another donation to have the toilet placed on someone else’s lawn. This fundraiser will take place from now until the actual Relay for Life June 2 and 3. Kaitlyn Davis, a junior at Scranton Preparatory School, and Katherine Lord, are running the fundraiser called Relay Toilet. The idea for the fundraiser, according to Davis, came from other Relay for Life committees from across the country. The toilet seat has instructions on how the fundraiser works and an Abington Relay for Life logo printed on the back. “We thought this would be fun, a real cool idea. We just want to make it happen. Our other teams do their fundraisers like bake sales and car washes. We wanted to do something different,” Davis said. Nothing like stirring up the neighborhood for a flush of money. The point of all of the fundraisers prior to, and during, the Relay for Life, is to help run the American Cancer Society’s three major programs. Those include the:

Road to Recovery, where volunteers drive people for their cancer treatment. Patients might not be able to make it on their own or do not have anyone to take them at their scheduled times; he Hope Lodge, which provides cancer patients and their families with free lodging and meals during prolonged cancer treatmentsand the Look Good, Feel Good which provides trained beauticians who help patients with wigs and makeup. The American Cancer Society has been supporting these programs successfully for years. And Relay for Life and all independent fundraisers, like Relay Toilet, make that happen. Some of the money funds cancer research. Davis said the committee of 30 high school students will also supervise a lot of fundraising the day and overnight of the event. An example of this would be a team charging $1 to fire nerf balls at their friends or other teams. All Relay teams are encouraged to create their own fundraisers and have fun doing so. Relay for Life begins June 2 at 3 p.m. and runs through June 3 at Abington Heights High School. The event hosts Relay teams that camp out so that someone is always walking through the night for cancer survivors, their families and remembered loved ones. Anyone wishing to take part in Relay for Life, a fundraiser or just wishing to make a donation can go to www.relayforlife.org/paabington.

A mother in memories

How do you measure a mother’s worth? Many of us who are currently deep in the trenches of mothering often wonder how we measure up. How do we know if we are doing a good job? Is it whose child is at the top of the class? The most-winning athlete? The happiest and most carefree? Or the kindest and most community-minded? I try to be a good mom. On a daily basis, I reach deep down to find the patience and strength required to tackle the job. The most mundane and repetitive tasks can be the toughest. Making sure the children are clean, prepared for school, fed a somewhat nutritious diet, adequately rested and not overdosing on their electronics takes constant vigilance. Along with that, parents are attempting to develop their children’s’ consciousness regarding an endless list of ethical and moral issues. There’s the hope they will come to have compassion, be charitable, love nature, understand world politics, love themselves and value people over things. I know I had a good mother. When I think back to my childhood, I see snapshots, moments in time from as early as maybe three years old; and they are beautiful pictures. I see the early

morning light streaming through the chiffon curtains over my mother’s bedroom window. My vantage point was low as I toddled over to her side of the bed and crawled up and in. I see her bringing me my favorite cereal, Cap’n Crunch, in bed, although it tasted terrible through my fever-affected taste buds. I see her sitting at her sewing machine night after night while the rest of us watched The Brady Bunch and other 70’s sitcoms, painstakingly making my Easter dress. It would match those of my sisters and be unique and I would feel beautiful at church on Sunday. I see the carefree moments, like driving home from the

few years ago, she came to take care of me. A variety of antibiotics hadn’t yet taken effect and she could tell, from my voice on the phone, that she was needed. No matter how kindly my husband tried, his attempts to soothe, cool, hydrate and feed me were insufficient. It was my mother, with her made-fromscratch Hungarian chicken soup and endless cups of tea and honey that finally did the trick. Of the million-plus things my mother must’ve said to me while in the throes of raising her four children, the most memorable moments are ones that might have seemed mundane. She may not have used those moments to tally in her favor on her parenting scorecard, but those were the moments where I knew, without a doubt, that I was loved.

beach at the end of a hot summer day. The station wagon’s windows were rolled down and my mom was at the wheel, singing to ABBA, Wings or Billy Joel. My sisters and brother and a friend or two were singing along, sand on our feet and the wind whipping our hair around. I see her at her vanity, doing her hair and putting on makeup for a night out with my dad. She would curl my hair too and powder my cheeks. I thought she was the most beautiful mother in the world and hoped I looked a little like her. Even better than the memories are the feelings they elicit. My mother made me feel special, adored and cared for. If I had a bad dream, I knew her side of the bed was where I would find sympathy and never be turned away. She would curl her body around mine and make me feel safe. When I was home sick from school, my symptoms would be treated and she would comfort me. Her ability to make everything better still has a place in my adult life. When I was sick with pneumonia just a

I really learned a lot about independence and diversity and global awareness. Perfect Saturday Afternoon: Playing tennis, shopping at Barnes & Noble and watching movies and eating Chinese food with my friends. Can’t Leave Home Without: Probably my cell phone. my calendar on my phonekeeps me organized with all the different SADD events I plan. I also can listen to music when I want to relax.

But, we all know this is not true,” Chuff said.

Family members of Delaney, including her brother, Evan Sandercock, her aunt Nancy Neville, her parents Angela and Gregg Sandercock and Peter Lengel view the sculpture.

A memorial dedicated to former student, the late Delaney Sandercock, was held at the Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr. High School May 2. Sandercock, who died in a boating accident May 7, 2010, would have been a member of the Class of 2012. Fellow classmate, Peter Lengel, with help from his father, created this memorial as part of a senior project. “How do I create something that embodies Delaney’s qualities? When I thought of Delaney, the words, quiet, gentle and beautiful came to mind. She was quiet in her presence, yet her kindness made her stand out. She brought much joy into the life of everyone who knew her, sometimes simply by her sweet smile,” Lengel said. “I thought of butterflies. Butterflies are beautiful, yet gentle creatures who often grace us with their presence, however fleeting. Many butterflies are here for just a short while before they fly off to a bet-

ter place. While the sculpture was being unveiled, another classmate, Gabby Sunseri sang “Arms of an Angel.” The sculpture consists of four butterflies, one for each of Delaney Sandercock’s family members. They butterflies were designed to move in the breeze. They are located near the gym and athletic Gabby Sunseri sings “Arms of an field entrance. Angel” during the unveiling of the memorial display.

Close friends of Delaney include, from left, Cecilia Strauch, Alyssa Buntz and Nina Gatto.

Radio Players back to the ’50s

Between the 1920s and the 1950s, radio was the most prevalent form of entertainment in the American household. This time period was known as the Golden Age of Radio. On May 22 at 7 p.m., the Dietrich Radio Players will transport us back in time to the 1950s for an evening of live, old-time radio shows. The group of 14 actors directed by Valerie Paulus will perform “Lost in Hollywood” an episode from the comedy series “The Magnificent Montague,” which starred Monty Woolley and was originally broadcast on January 19, 1951. The radio players will also perform an episode from the Night Beat series called “Railroaded” (aka “Hit and Run”) which originally aired June 19, 1952. This drama series was about a gritty reporter for the Chicago Star, Randy Stone, who worked the night beat. Stone would help solve crimes and help good people who would be in trouble. The evening will also include live music provided by Carol Broll and old-time sound effects created by Esther Harmatz. According the Valerie Paulus, “I want the audience to be entertained and to enjoy an evening of ‘the theater of the mind.’ It is important to embrace this form of entertainment since it is an important part of American history.” Admission to the show is free. For more information or to reserve seats, call the Dietrich at 570.996.1500.

On June 25 through 29 from 10 a.m. 12:30 p.m., instructor Rand Whipple, of Box of Light Theatre will guide students ages 9 through 14 as they create the craziest commercials. Talk about creativity, the students will not only create a commercial but they will have to come up with own crazy products to sell whether it might be a button that makes annoying siblings disappear to an ACME instant ninja. Along the way, the class will learn how to shoot edit and create the allimportant sound effects for digital film. During the same week in the afternoons from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. students ages 8 through 14 will delve into the digital arts as they explore the arts through claymation, robotics and special effects in Digital Arts Camps. Campers will also learn how to shoot, edit and score their own short films. Admission to each camp is $60 and not experience is required. Call the Dietrich at 570.996.1500 to register or for more information. We will also be starting up our theatre and visual arts camps on June 25 through 29 from 10 a.m. - noon with the ever-popular Knights, Princesses and Dragons camp. During this camp, students ages 5 to 12 will go on an awesome adventure as they learn all about medieval times and the creatures in them. They will use that knowledge to create a play, costumes, props and works of art related to that time period. The next theatre and visual arts camp, Mount Olympic!, will be offered the week of July 16 through 20 from 10 a.m. - noon. This camp will teach students all about the Olympics and its origins in ancient Greece as well as about the amazing country where they are being held this summer – England. Campers will become Olympic heroes or super-talented gymnasts while making up a fabulous play. Students will also create their own medals and trophies, laurel wreaths, togas, torches and flags to celebrate this wonderSee DIETRICH, Page 8

The trip to Beijing included surprises every day, according to Vietz, who loved singing karaoke, ate her first cricket (at a price of $2 for eight crickets) and saw Tiananmen Square. “It was amazing that one of the Chinese students that was with us for that day trip, told me she only found out about the massacre last year from her American friend, because the students aren’t taught about it there,” said Vietz. “It sounds so cliché, but I didn’t realize how grateful I should be for things as simple as freedom of speech or education. Life is so different for the other students we met: they don’t have Facebook, they can’t access information that isn’t monitored by the government.” Some of her highlights from that portion of her trip to Beijing include walking through the local parks where hundreds of people dance and exercise, visiting ancient temples, sightseeing at the Great Wall and taking a sleeper train to Datong, a former mining city in China. While traveling, Vietz transcribed many details of her journey in a blog, “The Vagabond Journal: Adventures of a Wanderer,” at http://thevagabondjournal.tumblr.com/ Since returning to Clarks Green, she noted in the blog, “And just like that, 26,000 miles later, I’m back at the little black mailbox (at home) and my favorite green space in the world,” referring to home where she lives with her parents, Dale and Diane Vietz and brother, Brian. “I expected home to feel a lot different, I think. I expected to have some big change or a new perspective…reverse culture shock…but home is still home, but I keep thinking about the rest of the world. That’s the only difference.”

Frosh breaks records BY TOM ROBINSON Abington Journal Correspondent

SCRANTON – Cassidy Jenkins got her first track and field postseason as a varsity athlete off to an impressive start during the May 9 Robert Spagna Lackawanna Conference Championships at Memorial Stadium. The Lakeland freshman set one record during 100-meter hurdles qualifying, the first event of the day on the track. “I was so nervous going in,” said Jenkins, who ran personal bests in both events. “I didn’t know what to expect.” Jenkins went on to win the 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles in which she set another meet record. “My times have been the same almost all season,” said Jenkins, who took six-tenths of a second off her personal best in the 100 hurdles and cut a second of her time in the 300. “I got lucky today.” Jenkins, who joined the juSee FROSH, Page 12

welve-year-old angler, Nicholas Kester, Clarks Summit, does not have any fishing secrets to divulge. “There’s really no trick to catching a fish. It’s basically luck,” said Kester, who has been fishing since age four. There’s no specific book or trick to make a successful fisherman. One thing that’s important is a good ‘cast,’” said Kester. He fishes at least once per week and enjoys the sport regardless of whether he catches a fish. He estimates he has spent literally hundreds of hours fishing with his father, Jack, his fishing partner, or his uncle, Bob Kester. “If I get bored, I’ll just go fishing,” said Kester. Kester can be found fishing at a variety of local waterways including Lake Eston Wilson at the Abington Area Community Park in South Abington Township, his pond at home, or at lakes Winola and Wallenpaupack. And every year since 2007, he has spent one week fishing in Canada, where he typically catches most of his fish, including bass, pike and Walleye. “We ate the fish.” In August 2011, he caught the biggest bass during his trip to Canada. “Last year, I caught a five pound Walleye,” Kester said. If you happen to see Kester fishing, he will likely be fishing with his See Angler, Page 11

When Michael Ubaldini thinks about all the pain and obstacles that one of his wife’s students has endured, participating in an event called the “Spartan Death Race” doesn’t sound so tough. “I consider it a blessing to have what I have and cherish the opportunity to get up every morning,” Ubaldini said. “I just think about what he had to go through the past few years and realize what I will have to do is really nothing.” As of May 2, Ubaldini had raised around $2,750. His goal is to hit $10,000 “The fundraising efforts started off very well ,” he said. “I’m continuing to do interviews to get more awareness out there.” In September 2008, at age 5, Nicholas Mincarelli, a student of Michael’s wife Robin, at Plymouth Elementary School in the Philadelphia suburbs was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a malignant tumor. The tumor was inoperable. His treatment included 43 weeks of chemotherapy at Children’s Hospital of

Junior leads Comets to victory BY JOE BARESS Abington Journal Correspondent

After pitching a complete game, recording nine strikeouts and giving up just three hits in a game against Honesdale Thursday, May 3, Abington Heights High School junior baseball player Kevin Elwell earned his fourth victory of the season. Elwell gave up one run in the first inning, but settled in to shut out Honesdale for the next six innings. “As the game went on, I knew that I needed to go right at the hitters and not be too fine so that I could preserve my arm and be able to go longer,” Elwell said. “My catcher, Connor Pacyna, and I were on the same page all game and that helped everything run smoothly.” Elwell leads the Comets in wins and strikeouts and is satisfied with his performance on the mound this season. However, he is disappointed with his production at the

plate. “I have left a lot of runners on base and just haven’t been able to get the timely hits that could help spark a rally,” Elwell said. “There are still a few regular season games and playoff games left so I hope See Junior, Page 13

C.S. fighter headlines card BY TOM ROBINSON Abington Journal Correspondent

James Cianci is excited about reaching main event status for the first time in his Mixed Martial Arts career. Headlining Saturday night’s Pa Cage Fight 12 at Genetti Manor in Dickson City, however, is more important in terms of what it could do for Cianci’s future in the sport. “I haven’t really thought too much about being a main event,� the 26-year-old from Clarks Summit said. “It is exciting to know that I’m headlining a fight; that I’ve gotten to that point. “But in terms of preparation and everything like that, I haven’t noticed a difference.� Cianci will take of Joel Roberts for the PA Cage Fight 135-pound championship. The fight will be the first of the year for Cianci, who suffered his first defeat by decision to unbeaten Jordan Parsons in December in Florida. Cianci is 3-1 with three stoppages as a professional after winning all three of his bouts as an amateur. He appeared – and won – on five of the first seven PA Cage Fight cards promoted by Northeast MMA.

nior high track team as an eighth grader, went undefeated in the 300 hurdles during the regular season and lost only to senior teammate Tori Doyle in the 100. After setting the record of 15.01 seconds in qualifying, Jenkins ran 15.46 in the final. She joined Doyle, who also won the high jump, in a 1-2 finish that got the Lady Chiefs headed toward a share of the Class AA girls’ championship with Holy Cross. Scranton Prep won the Class AAA boys’ title. The Cavaliers had just two wins, in relays. Norm Frederick anchored the 3200 relay win and contributed to the winning 1600 relay. For the first time, the meet separated scoring by Class AAA and Class AA rather than just scoring the top eight overall in each event. The Cavaliers finished 1-2-3 among Class AAA runners in both the 800 and 1600 to rack up a total of 48 points on their way to a 43-point win over Valley View. Mike Brier and Kyle Perry were 1-2 among AAA runners in both races and were second and third overall behind Galassi in the 3200. Corey Loman was third of AAA runners in the 3200 and Paul Labelle was third in AAA in the 1600. The title was the second in five days for Scranton Prep, which had earlier won the James Cross Invitational in Wilkes-Barre. Western Wayne won the Class AAA girls’ and Holy Cross took the Class AA boys’ championships. The Abington Heights girls sat many of their top competitors, particularly in the distance events, when the meet was postponed a day to five days before the District 2 championships.

Abington Heights senior Nathan Engh defeated two higher-seeded opponents May 11 at Kirby Park in WilkesBarre to capture the District 2-4 Class AAA boys’ tennis singles championship.

TRIBUTE

On March 12, Mincarelli began his journey in the next life. His family, friends and loved ones are in the process of celebrating his life and putting him to rest. As with the Mincarellis, many families need to travel to and from treatment facilities and stay for extended periods of time. The donations will support families that are in need of financial assistance as their child goes through treatment. Ubaldini has participated in other endurance events, but thinks the Spartan Death Race will push his limits further than ever before. “Last year, I did a Tough Mudder, a 13-mile race with obstacles. If you take that event and spread it over the entire weekend it would probably have some similarities, but it’s the mental anxiety that separates the Death Race,” he said. “The guys created the Spartan Death Race with the intent that nobody would finish it. There are a lot of mental challenges. The race makes things very uncomfortable.” Ubaldini is confident in his physical ability to complete the

race, but is trying to get into the right mentality to conquer the test. “Physically, I’m ready to go,” he said. “I was a four-year starting wrestler in high school and have been doing a lot of cross training. The mental aspect is a little tougher. I’m trying to expand my mind by reading and through visualization exercises.” The 1992 Abington Heights graduate is also trying to incorporate things into his daily routine that make it uncomfortable. “A 10 mile run for me is not uncomfortable, unless I start at 4 a.m. or run with a 20 lb. pack on my back,” Ubaldini said. The race will begin June 15 in Pittsfield, Vt. This endurance race is comprised of mud runs, obstacle racing, trail racing, physical challenges and mental challenges over 48 hours. Those interested in making a donation should make checks payable to “Friends of Nicholas Mincarelli” and send them to:Heroes for Nick c/o Michael Ubaldini 133 Puritan Road Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462

The Comets will face off against Scranton Prep at 4:30 p.m. today, May 16, at Connell Park. “We are starting to put things together a little bit and we hope to catch fire and start playing our best baseball so we can carry it over into districts,” Elwell said.

of those costs. As Mincarelli continued to grow, he needed multiple surgeries to correct the damage and deformities. In April 2010, doctors discovered a mass in Mincarelli’s left lung. Mincarelli again started a rigorous treatment program for the next 40 weeks that included traditional radiation and surgery. This past fall, Mincarelli began to have very intense stomach pain after having clean scans two weeks prior. Additional tests showed that the cancer had returned and it was aggressively spreading. Several tumors appeared in his pancreas, liver and lungs. He began trial medications in the hopes they would prevent the tumors from growing. After some time it was determined that medicine no longer afforded any options , so the family and doctors decided to move him to palliative chemotherapy to provide comfort and assist him with remaining pain free.

The Abington Heights High School Physical Education Department conducted its 30th Annual Triathlon May 10. The Triathlon included events for both Ironman and five-team participants, with the events based upon individual grade level. Each team consisted of five participants: 1 biker – bikes 5 miles, 2 runners – run 2.5 miles each and 2 canoe paddlers – canoe course at Ford’s Pond. Ironman competitors performed each activity by themselves.

TRADITION CONTINUES FROM BYGONE ERA

POSTCARD COURTESY JACK HIDDLESTONE

In the era of Decoration Day, a postcard required a one-cent stamp for U.S., Canada and Mexico. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service to the nation. This holiday has its roots in the practice of women of decorating the graves of loved ones who had died in the Civil War.

John ‘Bud’ McCarthy Bud McCarthy of Clarks Summit died Sunday, April 15, surrounded by his family after a long illness. He and his wife, the former Nancy Rafter, would have celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary on May 2. Born in Dunmore, he was the son of the late Ernest and Sophia Kraft McCarthy. A graduate of Dunmore High School, he served in Okinawa with the U.S. Army and attended The University of Scranton. He founded McCarthy Flowers in Dunmore, “The Bokay Shop” on May 1,1952. The McCarthy Flowers Group is now nationwide. Bud had remained active as a consultant to his own stores and other flower shops across the country. He was also the former president of the Northeast Florist Association and was respected among his peers for his designs. He joined the Country Club of Scranton as a teenager. An avid social member, golfer and a member of the Hole-in-One Club, he held the second longest membership in the Club’s history. He was also a former member of The Melrose Club, Daufuskie Island S.C., and the Harbor Town Yacht Club, Hilton Head S.C. Bud had a strong faith and a firm belief in the power of prayer. His kind and compassionate ways and commitment to putting the needs of others first touched the lives of all he knew throughout his wonderful life. He was a kind and selfless man, and his keen sense of humor was second to none. His greatest joy was in keeping those close to him safe and happy. Along with his wife Nancy, survivors include: a son Brian McCarthy and his wife Erin of Atlanta, Ga.; two daughters, Linda McCarthy Flynn and husband Jim of Clarks Summit and Nancie McCarthy Pond and husband Ed of Titusville, Fla. Grandchildren are Jeffery Flynn of New York City, Kevin McCarthy and wife Julianna, and Meghan McCarthy of Atlanta, Ga.; two sisters- in -law Paula Harte of Scranton and Janie Rusinko of Clarks Summit; two nephews David Harte and Chris Harte of Scranton; three nieces Sandra Kenosky of Moscow, Robin Holman and Carol McCarthy both of Florida. He was preceded in death by a brother William McCArthy, a sister Mary Holman, and his beloved aunt Anna Kraft.

The photography of award-winning, photographer, Rose-Lynn Fisher, examines the majesty of the honeybee.

Spring buzz

A beeline to the Everhart

BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Spring is, for Ellen Kiballa McGlynn, one of her favorite seasons. “Spring is rebirth, renewal, growth,” she said. “Spring is color and warmth…spring is the opportunity to right all the things I did wrong last year. It’s a chance to do things better than ever. To bring your bees through to another spring is a great feeling of accomplishment, especially at a time when many beekeepers are experiencing great losses to Colony Collapse.” McGlynn, Waverly, and Jim Davis, Clarks Green, are organizers of the Lackawanna Backyard Beekeepers, a beekeeping group in Lackawanna County. As a beekeeper in the northeast, McGlynn does not relax until the first dandelion has popped. “Dandelions are the Steady Eddie; late frosts are less of a worry once the dandelion appears,” she said. “Bees thrive on the nectar and pollen of the dandelion to raise their brood.” And in spring, the bees are gentler and there is less aggression toward the beekeeper, allowing McGlynn at times to sit alongside the hive without any traditional beekeeping apparel and observe their activity within inches of the entrance. According to McGlynn, bees never fully hibernate and require outdoor temperatures in the 50s in order to regain some flexibility and venture out of the hive. They are, in fact, slow moving to begin with.She said the fast pace of a buzzing hive does not actually happen here in the Northeast until late April or early May, “when everything is caught in simultaneous bloom and it is consistently warm enough for them to fly.”

Krista Pasko, Lake Winola, admires the "Rebekah Rug," part of the BEEyond exhibit.

Along with the buzzing of the bees in the springtime, come the sounds of birds singing and butterflies gliding through the air. Jerry Skinner, Ph.D., professor of biology at Keystone College, La Plume, pays close attention to the migration of birds and like many people, awaits their arrival. He said, “My spirits pick up so much in the spring. This morning I walked 50 feet from my door to the car and before I got to the car I heard a new bird that wasn’t here last night. It’s almost silly, but I look up and I say, ‘Welcome back. I’ve missed you.’” .” The hummingbird is another wondrous migratory creature, its diet consisting of mostly nectar and some insects. “Either way they’ve obviously got to get out of here during the wintertime when those things aren’t available,” said Skinner. During the winter, most find their homes in Central America and then they start coming back north. “It’s very likely that hummingbirds have special places on both ends, where they come back to the same backyards every year and they go back to the same places in Central America every year,” he said. “The hummingbirds are so small but yet they make this several thousand mile migration each direction and sometimes when they’re young, one born in June turns and flies 2,000 miles south to who knows where.”

Honeybee and photography enthusiasts visited the exhibits, “BEEyond,” and “Directing Sunbeams,” at an opening reception at the Everhart Museum in Scranton May 3. The exhibits will run through Sept.3 in the Maslow Galleries, and Gallery One, respectively. Nezka Pfeifer, Everhart Museum curator said, “The museum decided more than a year ago when we saw Rose-Lynn Fisher’s photography, to take the exhibit, mainly because the Everhart has a very strong relationship with bees…and also a great highlight to illustrate just how important bees are and to bring attention to the issue with bees and ‘Colony Collapse Disorder’ and pesticides.” Fisher, who resides in Los Angeles, said,“I’ve always respected and admired bees, but as I learned more and more and explored them, it was almost miraculous to see…The more I learned about bees, it tied into the metaphors that I was discovering and the images.” Her exhibit examines the majesty of the honeybee, using the power of the electron microscope to explore its intricate details. Fisher is author of the book “BEE,” which won third place in the International Photography Awards. In Gallery One, “Directing Sunbeams,” adds a regional flavor to the BEEyond exhibit, as it focuses on local beekeepers. “These shows are important to the community,” Pfeifer said, “because a lot of people are going to remember the Everhart’s bees, but also because bees are so much in the news. It’s a very relevant story.”

and hand it to Jacoby. “Get the wording of the ordinance 1104 exactly,” said Salva. “Give a copy to Howard and a copy to Susan Davidson because she’s the head of the zoning.” Salva then told Davidson to check with Jacoby, and have the zoning board meet and review the citation. Davidson agreed. Salva informed Warenzak that there is an ordinance which prevents all signs going up in Dalton. He suggested Warenzak go through the appeal process.

In other business, coordinator of Lackawanna County Community Relations Rick Notari introduced himself to the board. “I’ll be here every meeting with any information you’re asking for, any question you may have, any help you may need, you can go through me, and I’m in charge of getting you answers.” Notari told the board that the county has a $500 Arts and Culture grant, which is available to each borough in the county to apply for to use for art projects or festivals. Later in

the meeting, board member Lorraine Daniels said that Dalton is receiving $500 from the Lackawanna County Arts and Culture for the upcoming Concerts in the Park. In other news, board member Susan Davidson asked for a motion for the yearly donation to the Dalton Fishing Derby, which will held at the Dalton Streamside Park on June 10 from 12 – 3 p.m. Registration starts at 11a.m. Board member Bill Montgomery seconded the motion. The board agreed.
