Back in the Day

the olyp hant coal part y By Joseph peter Klapatch

special to the Valley advantage

In elementary school, we learned about the Boston Tea Party: revolutionaries, disguised as native Americans, boarded British ships in Boston Harbor and destroyed an entire shipment of tea by throwing the cargo into the waters of the harbor. Fast forward to Olyphant in 1922. The Olyphant School District purchased coal to heat the schools, as well as the local synagogue and churches, from the Temple Coal Co. Yes, the school board paid to heat the synagogue and the churches of the borough. But that year Temple had reduced production, and would no longer sell coal to the Olyphant School District. They continued to sell coal to other school districts, but not Olyphant. Their justification was that they did not have any mining operations in Olyphant. Most of the mining operations in Olyphant were owned by the Hudson Coal Co., though the Pennsylvania Coal Co. owned and operated the Underwood Colliery. The Olyphant School District tried to buy coal from Hudson, but they also refused to sell. They said that the school district should work out arrangements with their former supplier. It was October and it was getting cold. The coal supply in all of the schools had been depleted. The schools could no longer be heated. The school district was not able to buy coal from any supplier. They closed the schools while they tried to make arrangements to buy coal. There were approximately 60,000 municipalities throughout the United States and Canada that used anthracite to heat their schools. Even though thousands of tons of anthracite were produced in Olyphant on a daily basis, Olyphant was unable to purchase anthracite coal. Hudson refused to heat the schools that were attended by the children of their miners and laborers, as well as the children whose fathers and brothers were killed or maimed in mining accidents. The school district sent telegrams to the Governor of Pennsylvania, William Cameron Sproul, and the President of the United States, Warren G. Harding. Sproul’s secretary, James F. McCoy, referred the matter to the Pennsylvania Fuel Commission. On the evening of Saturday, Nov. 4, there was a

meeting that included the Burgess (mayor) of Olyphant, P. B. Dempsey, members of the borough council, the school superintendent, Prof. Michael W. Cummings, and members of the school board. They decided that they had no choice, and they had to execute a plan to take coal by force. That Sunday morning, the fire gongs sounded. That was the signal for the men of the borough to go to the borough building with shovels. From there they walked to a railroad siding near North Valley Avenue, where loaded coal cars that were destined for delivery elsewhere were above an incline. The Olyphant Police and the volunteer fire companies were in on the plan. The police stood guard to prevent anyone from stopping the men from taking the coal. The volunteer firemen from Excelsior Hose Co. No. 1 and Grassy Island Hose Co. No. 3 stood ready with their hoses to ward off anyone who would interfere. Olyphant Hose Co. No. 2, Eureka Hose Co. No. 4 and Crystal Hose Co. No. 5 remained ready if there was a fire in the borough. The men opened three coal cars from the side to allow the coal to fall down the incline and onto the street. They then loaded the coal into trucks and wagons for delivery to the schools, churches and the synagogue. Father Murphy of Saint Patrick’s Church showed up and said, “You did all in your power to avoid this, but when the health of your loved ones is menaced, you must act in their defense.” Members of the Hudson Co.’s private police force arrived on the scene. They observed what was going on, turned around and left. Burgess Dempsey estimated that approximately 200 tons had been taken, and he intended to pay Hudson for all of it. On Nov. 21, there was an article on page 7 of the Wall Street Journal, entitled “Sproul Answers Hudson Coal Co.” According to the article, W. H. Williams, vice president of Hudson, was furious about what had happened in Olyphant. He asked Gov. Sproul to have the Pennsylvania State Police assist Hudson police in any future incidents such as this. Sproul responded that while the action taken by the residents of Olyphant cannot be justified, under the circumstances it was expected. He added that it is the responsibility of the local coal company to sell coal to

the local school districts. The amount of coal used by the Olyphant School District was comparatively inconsequential in comparison to the amount of coal mined in the borough. The residents of Olyphant compared this event to the Boston Tea Party, and referred to it as the Olyphant Coal Party. The differences were that for the Boston Tea Party, the tea was destroyed in response to the policy of the constitutional monarchy; the Olyphant Coal Party was in response to corporate greed, and the coal was that seized was not wasted. This article was adapted from an account in “The Old School: The Mid-Valley Elementary School in Olyphant, Pennsylvania,” by Joseph Peter Klapatch. “Back in the Day” is an occasional feature taking a look back to the Advantage area’s past.

The Homecoming advisors, Marisa Durkin and Michelle Gerken, presented a donation to the Louis J. Ruspi Foundation. This foundation was founded by Karla Farina and Teressa Stann, in memory of their brother, Lou Ruspi Jr., who committed suicide. The LJR Foundation mission is to reduce the stigma attached to emotional illness and increase education on mental health in school districts.

Dr. Bassel Noumi graduated Summa Cum Laude from Tishreen University School of Medicine, Lattakia, Syria in 2005. He then obtained a Certificate of Study in Clinical Research and Management from Drexel University, Pennsylvania, and worked as a clinical researcher at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. He went on to complete a three year residency in Internal Medicine at The Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education in Scranton where he was honored with the ‘Robert Wright M.D. Outstanding Resident Award’.

In his years of fellowship, Dr. Noumi developed a special interest in lung nodule characteristics and classification, interstitial lung diseases, and interventional pulmonary procedures. He was exposed to the newest methods of lung cancer screening including genetic testing, and diagnoses of lung malignancy with other cutting edge technologies such as navigational bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound. Dr. Noumi is pleased to see patients with lung nodules and cancers, interstitial lung diseases, COPD, asthma, and all other pulmonary illnesses. In his daily life Dr. Noumi enjoys spending time with his family gathered around the kitchen cooking up new recipes. He also loves action packed flicks amongst other movie titles. When he can find the time, Dr. Noumi enthusiastically plans family trips to new destinations.

Dr. Noumi completed a three year combined fellowship in Pulmonary

breas t ca nce r awareness Less er-k nown sy mptoms of brea st ca ncer Public perception that breast cancer is only identified by lumps detected through self-examination or routine mammography may prevent thousands of women from receiving an early diagnosis and the care they need. Although lumps are the most common symptom associated with the disease, women should recognize that breast cancer can pro-

duce additional symptoms. Susan G. Komen for the Cure, one of the premier organizations for breast cancer research, advocacy and treatment, advises that the warning signs for breast cancer are not the same for all women (or men). Various changes in the breast and body can occur, including the following conditions. • Breast-size changes: Many left and right breasts are not completely symmetrical, and women familiar with their bodies know that one breast is often slightly larger than the other. However, breast-size changes that occur out of the blue may be indicative of a medical problem. • Skin rash or redness: Women who are breastfeeding can experience a rash on the

“ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phil. 4:13

• Unexplained pain: The Mayo Clinic advises that less than 10 percent of people diagnosed with breast cancer report pain as a symptom. But unexplained pain in an area of the breast should not be ignored. Breast pain that does not go away and seems to involve one area of the breast should be checked. • Fatigue: General cancer symptoms can include unusual fatigue and unexplained weight loss. These symptoms should not be left unchecked. One of the best things women and men can do is to familiarize themselves with their bodies so they will be more capable of pinpointing any irregularities that may develop. Individuals can routinely look at their breasts and inspect for subtle changes. But remember that hormonal breast changes occur during the menstrual cycle, so it’s best to be familiar with how breasts look and feel both during and after menstruation.

Life a f ter br east cance r The moment a person receives a breast cancer diagnosis, his or her life changes immeasurably. The roller coaster of emotions begins, and suddenly this person is thrust into a schedule of doctor’s appointments, treatments and visits from friends and family. The World Cancer Research Fund International says breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and men and is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women in 140 of 184 countries worldwide. Despite that prevalence, the five-year relative

breasts from an infection of breast tissue. But those who are not breastfeeding should be evaluated by a doctor if redness, irritation or rash appears. • Nipple changes: Nipple discharge that starts suddenly and is not associated with breastfeeding can be indicative of cancer. Other changes to the nipples, such as pulling in of the nipple (inversion) or itchy, scaling skin on the nipple, should be brought to the attention of a doctor. • Changes to the skin: Dimpling of the skin, peeling, flaking, or scaling skin can be a cause for concern as well. • Lumps elsewhere: Cancerous tumors may not only be felt in the breasts. Breast cancer can spread to the lymph nodes around the breasts, and lumps may be felt under the arms.

OCTOBER 6, 2017



survival rate for women diagnosed with localized breast cancer (cancer that has not spread to the lymph nodes or outside the breast) is 98.5 percent, says the American Cancer Society. Survival odds increase as more is learned about breast cancer and more people take preventative measures, including routine screenings. Today, there are nearly three million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. Breast cancer treatments may last anywhere from six months to a year. Adjusting after treatment may not come so easily at first. But adjustments are easier with time, and many cancer survivors continue to live life to the fullest in much the same way they did prior to their diagnosis. When treatment ends, patients often still have fears about the cancer, wondering if all of the cancerous cells have been destroyed and worrying about recurrence. But focusing on the present and all of the things you now can do with health on your side is a great way to put your fears behind you. Many cancer survivors must still visit their doctors after treatments end. Doctors still want to monitor patients closely, so be sure to go to all follow-up appointments and

discuss any symptoms or feelings you may be having. Side effects may continue long after radiation or chemotherapy has ended. Your doctor may have suggestions for coping with certain side effects or will be able to prescribe medications to offset these effects. Follow-up appointments should gradually decrease the longer you have been cancer-free. It’s not uncommon to feel differently after cancer treatment, as your body has been through quite a lot. Many women still experience fatigue, and sleep or normal rest doesn’t seem to make it abate. Realize this is normal, and how long it will last differs from person to person. It can take months or years for you to experience your “new normal.” Things do not happen overnight. While your hair may grow back quickly, it may take some time for you to feel like yourself again. Exercise routines or other lifestyle changes may help you overcome fatigue or make it more manageable. Speaking with others who have survived breast cancer can help. Join a support group or reach out to others through social media. Getting a first-hand account of what can be expected the first year after treatment can assuage anxiety.

brea st canc er awa renes s Cele brit ies w ho have had breast CanC er Breast cancer remains one of the most common forms of cancer among women, surpassed only by skin cancers. Anyone, even men, can get breast cancer, but gender, age and hereditary factors do put

some at greater risk than others. Many famous women have bravely battled breast cancer. The following are just a few of the famous women who made their battles with breast cancer public.

• Christina Applegate: Applegate underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in 2008. She continues to be a source of inspiration for other breast cancer patients and survivors. • Sheryl Crow: Even before her own diagnosis in 2006, Crow was raising money and awareness for cancer. Crow had radiation therapy and minimally invasive surgery and has since been cancer-free. • Cynthia Nixon: Popular television actress Nixon originally kept her cancer diagnosis private. But she shared her story two years after diagnosis and is now a breast cancer awareness advocate. • Giuliana Rancic: Talk-show host Rancic had a double mastectomy in 2012. She shared her story to help other women and provide inspirational hope. • Judy Blume: The famed young adult author was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, 17 years after being diagnosed

with cervical cancer. • Olivia Newton-John: The actress and singer discovered breast cancer in 1992 and took a hiatus for surgery and chemotherapy. She has since been an advocate for breast cancer awareness so other women can see the importance of early detection. • Dame Maggie Smith: Renowned British Actress Smith was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 while filming her sixth appearance as Professor McGonagall in the “Harry Potter” series. She continued to work on the movie while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. • Wanda Sykes: Comedian Sykes revealed that she had a double mastectomy in 2011 after doctors found evidence of early-stage breast cancer in her left breast. • Robin Roberts: The “Good Morning America” anchor was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer in 2007.

Take Care Of Your Neck I find myself educating patients daily about the function and posture of the neck. I really enjoy letting my patients know about something so important to their health. I just wish more people knew this information from an early age. If they did, they would pay more attention when their neck stiffens or when they bump their head. These little things don’t seem to be of much consequence when they happen but little things do add up over time. It surprises me sometimes how well we take care of our cars, changing the oil regularly, having it aligned, but when it comes to the spine, even a collision with a wall is thought to be of little consequence. Working on your posture at an early age and keeping your mobility even and smooth are best taken care of early on, not after arthritis has set in.
