Farrell Memorial Scholarship presented on anniversary of namesake’s death. By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

The Lake-Lehman Foundation awarded the first John Peter Farrell Memorial Scholarship to a graduating senior at the foundation’s tea event on Sunday, April 15 – exactly one year after Farrell, a former school board member, died in a car accident. Farrell had served on the Lake-Lehman School Board since 2008. The Harveys Lake resident died on April 15, 2011 following a car accident on State Route 29 in Noxen Township. Lorraine Farrell, Farrell’s widow, presented the scholarship at the Hayfield House on the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus to senior Matthew Gorski, of Shaver-

ship. Peter Farrell worked as head custodian within the Wilkes-Barre School District for 25 years and his father served on the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board. Lorraine Farrell said the student chosen for the $500 scholarship was special because Gorski will study elementary education with a specialization in reading in college. “King’s is where I got my reading specialization,” said Lorraine Farrell. Johnna Evans, president of the Lake-Lehman Foundation, said the criteria for the scholarship were developed by looking Lorraine Farrell, widow of John Peter Farrell, pauses to reflect at at other scholarship requirethe Lake-Lehman Foundation Annual Tea and Scholarship ments throughout the country.

The Harveys Lake Police Department will be relocated as council members voted 4-2 in favor of the project on Tuesday after heated public debate on the issue. The borough received a $78,220 grant from gaming funds last month for the project which includes renovations to an old recreation building at 22 Little League Road for the police department currently located on State Route 415. Council members Larry Radel, Boyd Barber, Fran Kopko and Amy Williams voted for continuing with the project while Michell’e Boice and Thomas Kehler voted against the motion. Council member Ed Kelly abstained from the vote as he wanted to see results from a referendum vote in November about whether the project should be completed. Residents crowded the meeting room to express mixed feelings about the project – many were for the move, while others were against it. Resident Carol Culver took issue with the fact that Mayor Clarence Hogan had signed a letter in November attesting the project had community-wide support while she insists she had not heard of its existence until recently. Hogan told residents he had “word-of-mouth” support for the project. “You misrepresented yourself, Mr. Hogan,” said Diane Dwyer, a residentandformercouncilmember. Radel said there were no public hearings on the project prior to the grant submittal because there wasn’t assurance the borough would receive the money. Radel said much of the grantwriting work was done on a volun-

teer basis by council members and four members were aware of the project last year. Boice said the grant could be rewritten and resubmitted to make upgrades to the current police building instead of moving it across the lake, but Radel said the borough would risk losing the money if that action was completed. Boice made a motion to rewrite the grant, but council members voted 4-3 against the idea. Some residents had concern about the project’s potential cost to taxpayers, as well as the removal of police presence in the “hub” of Harveys Lake. “An isolated area like the rec building will send a message to residents and visitors alike that the police are not available, or even worse, that Harveys Lake does not have a police force at al,” said Dwyer. Boice said property taxes bring in about $245,000 a year, but it costs about $344,000 to run the police department. She said at least one of the three full-time and four part-time officers are on duty at a time and the department only has three cruisers. Resident Jason Miller questioned why property taxes were so high to run a relatively small police force. “We have a grant, that’s fine and dandy, but I don’t think there (are) many grants that are going to cover all the expenses you’re See POLICE, Page 12

Lake-Lehman seniors prep for last time on stage By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

For many of the students performing and working behind the scenes on the upcoming LakeLehman play, “Once Upon a Mattress,” it will be their last time on the Lehman Township stage for a while. But don’t worry – none of them will look the least bit glum while performing the energetic and uproarious comedy loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea.” After all, they are actors. One of those leaving Lehman in a few months is 17-year-old drama club veteran Mikayla Orrson, who will move to New York City in September to attend the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts. Orrson, who plans to study film and television acting, has been part of the Lake-Lehman

theater troupe since she was in seventh grade and has participated in productions at the Music Box Theater in Swoyersville and the Northeast Youth Theater Company in Wilkes-Barre. “Ever since I was little, I’ve always wanted to be on TV and then I found out it had a name – acting,” said Orrson. She’s especially excited to live in the city she loves while also avoiding having to drive to get around. “I love that you can go anywhere by subway,” she said. And though some have expressed concerns about Orrson’s career path, she isn’t deterred from pursuing her childhood dream. “I have had a couple of naysayers,” she said. “It’s all I’m really passionate about, and I don’t get bored doing it. It’s all I’m really good at, and it’s what I love.” Others in the Lake-Lehman theater group’s senior class are preparing for many varied careers, from occupational therapist to elementary teacher. Despite the differences in their professional aspirations, all the students said theater has given them the skills to be the person they’re meant to be. Clad in a tweed blazer and

She marched right up to the theater director at the time and asked for a part in the upcoming play when she was in seventh grade. “I had the feeling that I didn’t want to be shy anymore. I didn’t want to be the little person,” said 17-year-old Rosser. “I want to show people that I can get out there and talk and show emotion.”

DALLAS BOROUGH

Residents express concerns about ongoing work By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Concerns about the ongoing road work on Huntsville Road caused residents to speak out at the Dallas Borough Council meeting on Wednesday evening. Resident Dave Hozempa and a neighbor expressed concerns about the ever-changing project, which got its start last year, and asked whether storm water issues would result in changing the height of the curbs. Borough Manager Tracey Carr said Huntsville Road is owned by Luzerne County and the state Department of Transportation is al-

so involved in the project. She said the project includes widening the road, installing overlay, replacing some sidewalks and making storm water infrastructure improvements. Carr planned to discuss residents’ concerns with county and state officials on Thursday and hopes to meet with affected residents soon. Council authorized Carr to develop project specifications for storm water infrastructure improvements to Fawn Drive, Hickory Road and Whitetail Drive, contingent upon project approval from PennDOT to use state liquid fuels funds. Carr said the area is prone to storm water issues and residents’

complaints have spurred the action. In other news, council … • Approved an ordinance authorizing Dallas Fire and Ambulance Inc. to recover costs and expenses from property owners for its services through its insurance policies. Carr said at a previous meeting some materials used by the fire department are very costly to replace, and this action will only be taken if it is covered by property owners’ insurance policies and will not apply to every resident. • Approved an ordinance to create uniform requirements for contributors into the borough wastewater collection and treatment system that will be admin-

istered and enforced by the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority. The ordinance will also set fees for the administration and operation of an industrial pre-treatment program and establish penalties for violations. • Approved Kingston Township as an addition to the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency with John Turner as an assistant coordinator representing the township. • Approved the purchase of six portable radios for the police department, including upgraded batteries and remote speakers at the state purchasing program price of $3,576 proposed by Purosky & Tuckerman.

• Approved the execution of an agreement with Stell Enterprises Inc. for the agreed-upon costs for 40-yard waste containers and hauling fees in conjunction with the 2012 Spring Cleanup Project. • Acknowledged receipt of the Audited Financial Statements for 2011 and authorized payment to Kovalchik, Kollar & Co. in the amount of $4,125 for the work. • Approved the 2012 summer recreation program announcement, registration procedure, program information and rules and regulations, including the participation of up to 100 Dallas Township resident children. Dallas Township supervisors have pledged to equally share the costs of the program.

• Acknowledged the receipt of the 2012 state liquid fuels tax fund payment in the amount of $69,674.77 received on April 2. • Authorized Carr to submit surveys completed by residents to the Luzerne County Office of Community Development in support of securing a Community Development Block Grant to improve Wellington Avenue. • Accepted the resignation of part-time road department worker Frank Stanish and authorized Carr to seek applicants and conduct interviews for the position. • The next Dallas Borough Council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May16 in the municipal building.

The Lake-Lehman School Board approved the retirement

The board also accepted the resignation of Tiffany Hettes, head girls’ volleyball coach, and approved the release from employment of Michelle Keiper, part-time custodian and food service worker.

By APRIL DULSKY Special to The Dallas Post

Internationally-known author and journalist Carl Bernstein spoke to a select group of Misericordia University students about the Watergate scandal and “The Cult and Culture of Washington: An American Problem that Must Be Solved.” Bernstein and fellow journalist Bob Woodward, reporters for the Washington Post at the time, helped expose the Watergate scandal which caused President Richard Nixon to resign. Bernstein also opened the floor to students’ questions and concerns about politics and other hot-topic issues. “The class was designed to enable class leaders from the communications, English and history departments to immensely benefit from interacting with a prominent figure in journalism history,” said Melissa Sgroi, Communications department chair and professor. Bernstein gave background on the Watergate scandal and how he and Woodward worked with the Post to break the story about the national scandal that won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1973. Some students were asked by Bernstein to give a brief definition of the Watergate scandal at the beginning of class. Gia Mazur, of Dickson City, talked candidly about the scandal and gave historical insight about how American citizens felt at the time about their government. “Oh man, how do I define it to you?” said Mazur. “Someone was tapping the phone lines and President Nixon was doing something that he shouldn’t have been doing; I know that.

The Dallas Post wins three Keystone awards By Dallas Post Staff

The Dallas Post earned three of 24 Keystone Press Awards won by Impressions Media newspapers this year for news, feature and sports stories, photos and columns, special projects and design in 2011. Competing in Division VII for non-dailies with circulation under 5,000, Dallas Post staff writer Sarah Hite captured first place in the general news category for her story about the 2010 Kingston Township Holiday House lighting contest. Photographer Bill Tarutis took first place in the Feature Photo category for the photo accompanying a story called “Count & Care,” published in The Dallas Post last May. Tarutis captured an honorable mention for Sports Photo titled “Huge win for the Mountaineers.” Tarutis also won a first-place Sports Photo award for a photo in Go Lackawanna and first place for a photo story in The

Sunday Dispatch. The Times Leader took home three first-place awards, while weekly newspaper Go Lackawanna in Scranton captured nine awards and The Abington Journal in Clarks Summit and The Sunday Dispatch in Pittston each won four. The Abington Journal also was named the Sweepstakes winner for its division. “We’re proud to see all the news organizations of Impressions Media be recognized in the 2012 Keystone Press Awards. Our news organizations won a total of 24awards, including another sweepstakes award for The Abington Journal. That’s a three-peat for the Journal, the third year in a row that publication won the most award points in the division,” said Executive Editor Joe Butkiewicz. Butkiewicz said Times Leader staff “should take pride in winning first-place awards for the biggest stories of the year, winning two top awards for our outstanding news coverage of the

faith in their government because they couldn’t trust anybody.” “Washington is a broken place,” he said. “The system is broken, broken fundamentally, I believe, by the single branch of government, which is almost totally dysfunctional, the legislative branch congress of the United States.” Ellen Hoffman, of Kingston, realized she needs to become more educated about politics. “There is so much out there that I realized I don’t know about and really should,” she said. “It opened my eyes to just how important politics are and how they shape our lives.” Other topics discussed during the class included the national debt, investigative journalism and student loans. Bernstein also talked about news sources and urged students to take a step back from social media and look to other media platforms for their news. He suggested reading newspapers either online or in print to receive the most reliable information. “Our generation is so focused on social media,” said Gabrielle Gattuso, of Mountain Top. “I know sometimes I forget that there are legitimate sources of news out there. I’m definitely going to start reading The New York Times and not completely relying on social media for news.” “I liked the question and answer session but I felt there were a lot of questions left unanswered, not that I expected Bernstein to have all the answers,” said Noel Sidorek, of Beaumont. “I would have really liked him to give us some advice on how we as a generation can fix and avoid the problems of the generations before us.” Some stsudents believed the

master class could have provided more guidance and information about how the current generation can improve government and the political system in the future. “I really wish he could have provided the students with more specifics on the cult and culture of Washington, like the class was supposed to and really provide us with some guidance as to how we can alleviate the problems in our government,” said Julia Truax, of Millville. The master class brought students and professionals from their field of study together where they could interact and receive valuable information. Truax said bringing events to the campus provides students opportunities they would otherwise not have. Bernstein concluded the day with a free public lecture at Misericordia University about “His Holiness, John Paul II.” April Dulsky, of Dallas, is a senior communications and English major at Misericordia University and web editor of The Highlander, the campus’ student newspaper.

or for protection against a dangerous animal. These same rules apply to the discharging of bow and arrow and similar devices, except the prohibited area is reduced to 50 yards. Anyone who violates the ordinance would be guilty of a summary offense and face a fine of up to $200 plus court costs. Copies of the ordinance are available at the municipal building. The supervisors also approved a resolution to call for the reform of the Pennsylvania Prevailing Wage Law. The resolution requires that workers on public construction, reconstruction, demolition, alteration, or repair projects with an estimated cost greater than $25,000 be paid a wage set by the Secretary of Labor, rather than the local market rates. The resolution is the result of a request by both the Back Mountain Community Partnership and the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.

Supervisors adopted a firearms ordinance that regulates the firing of guns in the township at their meeting Tuesday evening. The ordinance, spurred by safety concerns related to gas line development, prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 150 yards of any dwelling house, school building, above ground natural gas facility or storage location, across public roads, in cemeteries or burial places, as well as on another person’s property. The discharge of firearms is permitted by law enforcement officials, hunting when adhering to the Pennsylvania Game Commission rules, in gun clubs, at private outdoor target and shooting ranges, private property, including basements, as long as there is compliance with National Rifle Association standards and rules, when there is a need to protect life or property, See LAW, Page 12

Chief says break-ins in township are minimal Addressing a resident’s concern about recent burglaries in the area, Police Chief Howard Kocher said during Monday’s board of supervisors meeting that only two break-ins occurred in the township in recent weeks. “We really haven’t had many burglaries,” he said, adding that a vacant home and a hunting cabin were burglarized. “We’ve been pretty lucky.” In other business, the board announced the township was reimbursed $74,371 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for work done by the road department to repair damage caused by Tropical Storm Lee in September.

Reimbursement of $60,000 for damage caused by Hurricane Irene in August should also be received soon, the board added. The township also recently received reimbursement of $54,646 from Encana Oil and Gas for damage to the roads caused by its trucks. The board passed a revised ordinance regarding a waste water pre-treatment agreement with the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority. The new ordinance addresses the latest EPA requirements and is in accordance with the Federal Clean Water Act and the Pennsylvania Clean Streams Law. - Camille Fioti

Sam Kravitsky loves to go fast By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Sam Kravitsky wants to go fast. And while driving quarter midget cars in races across the country, he usually does. Twelve-year-old Kravitsky, of Franklin Township, started racing about three years ago, after his father Shawn took him to Motorama at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg on the suggestion of a business client. “He got to sit in all different kinds of cars, but when he got to the quarter midgets, he was grinning from ear to ear,” said Shawn Kravitsky, a former mud drag racer. Soon after the car show, the pair found a used quarter midget car online and got to work rebuilding the vehicle. Quarter midgets are true to their name – they are one-fourth the size of a midget race car. According to the Quarter Midget Association, the cars are “built around a tubular and are fully suspended with springs or torsion bars and shocks.” Quarter midgets also feature chrome roll cages and Nerf-covered bars, for safety. Shawn estimates the cars’ top speed is about 40 miles per hour.

“I feel he’s safer in the car than my daughter is on the basketball court,” said Mary Ruth Kravitsky, Sam’s mother. Despite his lack of experience, the Dallas Middle School student didn’t need much time to start winning races. Shawn said Sam placed fourth out of 80 cars in his first race and first in the next race just a week later. “The people in charge didn’t like it – they thought he was cheating,” said Shawn. “They took the motor apart and they didn’t find anything.” In that first racing season, Sam won 13 of 27 races and placed in the top five for all of them. Now Sam has three quarter midget cars in his garage, which means more work for his “pit crew” – his father. “These cars have to be up to spec,” said Shawn. “…These really are race cars. They’re not just go-karts.” Sam was once only involved in basketball and golf, but now al-

Raine Scott, of Sweet Valley, said theater and art are all part of her master plan to focus on interior design at Luzerne County Community College this fall. “Theater has helped me with my management skills,” she said. Unlike the hidden curriculum in the theater program, there are no serious lessons in “Once Upon a Mattress.” The musical is about a kingdom in which no one can marry unless the queen’s son is betrothed. It features an overprotective mother (Queen Aggravain) who is pushing – and sab-

otaging – her son’s (Prince Dauntless) eligible bachelorettes (including Princess Winnifred). Hilarity ensues. “The show is very funny, and there is a lot of music and there are many love songs,” said Orrson. The cast also ensures one can see their closeness from the audience. Rodriguez-Teutonico said because the players know each other so well, that translates to good chemistry on stage. “It just goes to show you how important it is to have a relationship with the cast – it changes the dynamic,” she said.

welcomed on that side of the lake.” Police Chief Charles Musial said the current building is in “deplorable” condition and said the new building will ensure Harveys Lake Borough has a “state-of-the-art” facility while also maintaining officers’ safety. The new police building will include a kitchenette, shower facilities and two interrogation rooms. Hogan also said it is 600 square feet larger than the current police department building. Former council member Rich Williams III said the officers’ safety should be of the utmost importancetoresidents.Hetook issue with one resident’s criticism of the need for showers at the facility. “Our police department responds to numerous different calls in this borough – hazmat calls, ambulance calls, fire calls, domestics,” he said. “These people put their (lives) on the line foruseveryday–isittoomuchto ask that they have a place to clean themselves up if they get messy on the job?” Grotto Pizza owner Joe Paglianite, who donated the land and former bait shop in which the police department is currently housed, said the most important issue is whether the police are actually patrolling the lake – then it won’t matter where they are located.

Boice plans to formally object the move to state legislators and hopes an investigation will be conducted on the application process for the grant. In other news … • Council heard from consultant Fred Lubnow of Princeton Hydro about the artificial wetlands to be installed in the lake. Lubnow is seeking comments from residents about where to place the 250 square foot wetlands made from recycled plastic materials. The grant-funded islands will grow native plant species and the plastic will not only prevent plant life from spreading on the lake but also insulate plant roots in the wintertime. Lubnow said the purpose of the five anchored islands is to absorb nutrients, to promote fishery habitats and to provide an aesthetic element at the lake. • Radel also announced a cleanup day will be held at the lake from noon to 3 p.m. today, April 22. The event, sponsored by the Environmental Advisory Council, will be held in celebration of Earth Day. Anyone under the age of18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Rosser will attend Waynesburg University in the fall to study youth ministry. Amanda Rodriguez-Teutonico said the skills she learned in theater helped prepare her for being around war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder reluctant to share their stories. The 17-year-old from Shickshinny said volunteering every day at the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center has inspired her to double major in psychology and occupational therapy at The University of Scranton in the fall. “I learned how to be around people who find it hard to put themselves out there, who are really introverted,” she said. “In theater, you have to keep going even if you don’t get the reaction you wanted.” Eighteen-year-old Matthew Gorski, of Shavertown, said his future profession as an elementary school teacher will require him to perform nonstop. He will major in elementary education with a specialization in reading at King’s College in WilkesBarre this year. “I like elementary school because you’re helping children become who they will be,” he said.

You know, I think it really needs to be studied a lot more than behind in work sessions.” She also said the borough has operated at a deficit for the last two years and cost-cutting measures such as turning off street lights and council members giving up their monthly stipends have been instituted to save money. Radel said estimates from contractors are “on target” to be near the amount of money received from the grant to complete the project. Others praised the move because of the location’s proximity to the Little League fields and the Lake-Noxen Elementary School. “I’m there all hours of the day and all hours of the night until dark, mostly, and I do see the dragracing,”saidChrisCercone, president of the Little League association. “I have three children who play baseball there and it’s an everyday thing.
