The students have to do the math, design the project, do the layout and build it. They have to figure it out themselves.

I can use these skills later on in life if I plan to put an addition onto my house or build a patio.” “Masonry is a dying art,” said Summa. “This is a life skill that they will never forget. It is like riding a bike in that you don’t forget how to do it.”

I walked with my mother to the library in the summertime when it was located on State Street. My mother was a big reader and I wanted to have my own card as a teenager. “ If you can read, you can learn.” -Joanne Stetz 2) Favorite genre to read? I read mysteries, but also push myself outside of my comfort zone and read fiction and biographies. 3) Why have you stayed a library volunteer for decades? I love the library. I think its a great place. The people are friendly. It’s important to volunteer in your community and give back.

Dedication will take place on Memorial Day, May 28, 2018 following the parade, at the VFW on Winola Road in Clarks Summit.

Residencies typically begin July 1. According to the National Resident Matching Program, the 2018 Match was the largest in history, with 37,103 total registrants competing for 33,167 positions. Among them were 18,818 fourth-year M.D. students who submitted their program preference lists, including the 97 from Geisinger Commonwealth. Students who matched include: Above: Peter Cognetti of Waverly, who matched at Drexel University/Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia for family medicine. Below: Jared Egbert of South Abington Twp., who matched at Madigan Army Medical Center in Washington State for a transitional year.

There is a saying in sports that the most important ingredient in becoming a great coach is having great players. I do not know if there is a saying like that in journalism, but I have met several great readers of my column, and a reader I just met might be at the top of that list. To illustrate just how unique this reader is, first let me illustrate by drawing a caricature. Anyone who has lived in the Abingtons has seen how housing developments have begun to change the feel of the area. There is ample evidence of this along Fairview Road. When I was a child, there were hilly pastures surrounding the barns that still dot the edge of this avenue that travels through the heart of various decades of housing development. In fact, within a half mile on either side of this three-milelane, one could easily write an architectural history of development from 1960s ranches through the excesses of the 1970s and the “get-r-done” vinyl of the 1980s to the three decades of “McMansions” that take us right up to the present. And, in nearly every case, the new houses begin as lots for sale, with the only options being wooded or clear. Because builders do not adequately protect trees, after a few short years, most wooded lots end up in the same place as the cleared lots. Soil, pasture grass, brush and trees are taken out, the house and driveway are built, and then new soil, grass, and shrubs, and trees are put back in. The result is literally “out

with the old and in with the new,” not only on the lot itself, but also in the entire neighborhood. The reader I just met also built a house, but somewhere she found the beat of a different drum to follow: • “I made them pile all of the woodland soil around the property so that we could have at least the top foot of soil native. I want to keep even the soil the same as before I built.” • “I researched everything to try to find a permeable, permanent, plowable driveway. I hate it, but I had to go with blacktop.” • “None of this grass gets mowed, it is a fescue that grows to a maximum of 12 inches. It’s not a permanent lawn.” • “It’s okay if weeds grow in the grass — I don’t want a mono-culture anyway.” • “I don’t want bark mulch — the mulch of the forest is leaves.” When we parted, she said, “I hope you succeed in trying to change the world.” I said, “I think you should write a column.” The point is not whether mowing a lawn is right or wrong. The point is whether or not the “McEverything” style of landscape is the only choice. Reach me at josarhuap@aol.com. Joshua Arp is an ISA-certified municipal specialist, Clarks Summit’s municipal arborist and an operator of an organic lawn and landscape maintenance business.

Here are a some of the new audio books available at the library.

“The Recipe Box” by Viola Shipman Growing up in northern Michigan, Samantha Mullins felt trapped by her family’s apple farm, so she left with dreams of making her own mark in the world. Life as an overworked, undervalued sous chef at a reality star’s New York bakery is not what Sam dreamed. When the chef embarrasses Sam, she quits and returns home. Unemployed, single and defeated, she spends a summer working on her family’s orchard cooking and baking alongside the women in her life. One beloved, flour-flecked, ink-smeared recipe at a time, Sam begins to learn about and understand the women in her life, her family’s history and her passion for food through their treasured recipe box. As Sam discovers what matters most she opens her heart to a man she left behind, but who now might be the key to her happiness. “Ax to Grind” by Tonya Kappes Beryle Stone was a bestselling author and the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky. She knew everyone in town and they knew her. When she died, she put all her worldly possessions up for auction, all but one. She left behind a hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon. Since revenge is a dish best served cold, things turn ugly. Someone gets an ax to the back and the only witness gets put in a coma. Enter Sheriff Kenni Lowry. She knows someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. It’s her job to find out who. She starts uncovering as many secrets as there are suspects. Can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?

8 THE ABINGTON SUBURBAN

“By Invitation Only” by Dorothea Benton Frank The Lowcountry of South Carolina is where “By Invitation Only” begins at a barbecue engagement party thrown by Diane English Stiftel, her brother and parents to celebrate her son’s engagement. On this night, the bride’s father, Alejandro Cambria, discovers the limits and possibilities of cell phone range. While the mother of the bride, Susan Kennedy Cambria, learns about moonshine and dangerous liaisons. Zoom to Chicago, where the unraveling accelerates. Nearly a thousand miles away from her comfortable, familiar world, Diane is the antithesis of the bright lights and supersophisticated guests attending her son Fred’s second engagement party. Why a second party? Maybe it had been assumed that the first one wouldn’t be up to snuff? Fred is marrying Shelby Cambria, also an only child. The Cambrias’ dearest wish is for their daughter to be happy. If Shelby wants to marry Frederick, they will not stand in her way, although Susan does hope her friends won’t think her daughter is marrying more than a few degrees beneath her socially. At the same time, Diane worries that her son will be lost to her forever. “Claws for Concern” by Miranda James Charlie Harris is busy enjoying his new grandson when a mysterious man with a connection to Charlie’s family starts visiting the library, bringing with him troubling questions about an unsolved murder. Charlie may be a proud new grandfather, but he and Diesel still have work to do at Athena College and the small Mississippi town’s public library. He’s too busy to deal with true-crime writer Jack Pemberton, who wants Charlie as the subject of his latest book, and who won’t take no for an answer. A more appealing proposition for Charlie is spending time helping a kind, elderly man navigate the library’s genealogical database. But he’s shocked when he learns that the visitor’s search is focused on a member of his own family: his late aunt’s husband. Charlie befriends the man and considers inviting him to stay in his home, but he’s soon given reason to question that notion. Jack is certain that Charlie’s new houseguest was involved in a shocking homicide that took place years ago in a small town near Athena. As this cold case heats up, Charlie and Diesel have to uncover a killer who may already be too close to home. “The Coincidence Makers” by Yoav Blum What if the drink you just spilled, the train you just missed, or the lottery ticket you just found was not just a random occurrence? What if it’s all part of a bigger plan? What if

APRIL 12, 2018

there’s no such thing as a chance encounter? What if there are people we don’t know determining our destiny? And what if they are even planning the fate of the world? Enter the Coincidence Makers, Guy, Emily and Eric, three seemingly ordinary people who work for a secret organization devoted to creating and carrying out coincidences. What the rest of the world sees as random occurrences, are, in fact, carefully orchestrated events designed to spark significant changes in the lives of their targets. When an assignment of the highest level is slipped under Guy’s door one night, he knows it will be the most difficult and dangerous coincidence he’s ever had to fulfill. Not even a coincidence maker can see how this assignment is about to change all their lives and teach them the true nature of fate, free will, and the real meaning of love. “The Disappeared” by C.J. Box Wyoming’s new governor isn’t sure what to make of Joe Pickett, but he has a job for him that is extremely delicate. A prominent female British executive never came home from the high-end guest ranch she was visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard. Pickett knows that happens sometimes, these ranches are stocked with handsome young cowboys, and “ranch romances” aren’t uncommon. Now no sign of her months after she vanished that suggests something else. At the same time, his friend Nate Romanowski has asked Joe to intervene with the feds on behalf of falconers who can no longer hunt with eagles even though their permits are in order. Who is blocking the falconers and why? The more he investigates both cases, the more someone wants him to go away. Is it because of the missing woman or because he’s become Nate’s advocate? Or are they somehow connected? The answers, when they come, will be even worse than he’d imagined. “The Family Next Door” by Sally Hepworth From the outside, Essie’s life looks idyllic: a loving husband, a beautiful house in a good neighborhood and a nearby mother who dotes on her grandchildren. Few of Essie’s friends know her secret shame, that in a moment of maternal despair, she once walked away from her newborn, asleep in her carriage in a park. Disaster was avoided and Essie got better, but she still fears what lurks inside her, even as her daughter gets older and she has a second baby. When a new woman named Isabelle moves in next door to Essie, she is an immediate object of curiosity in the neighborhood. Why single, when everyone else is married with children? Why renting, when everyone else owns?

What mysterious job does she have? Why is she so fascinated with Essie? As the two women grow closer and Essie’s friends voice their disapproval, it starts to become clear that Isabelle’s choice of neighborhood was no accident and that her presence threatens to bring shocking secrets to light. “The Favorite Sister” by Jessica Knoll When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder… Brett’s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio—and her recent engagement to her girlfriend, has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her cast mates. Kelly, Brett’s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful best-selling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends and resentment soon breeds contempt. “The Favorite Sister” explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today’s America and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant and salable. “The Female Persuasion” by Meg Wolitzer To be admired by someone we admire we all yearn for this the private, electrifying pleasure of being singled out by someone of esteem. Sometimes it can also mean entry to a new kind of life, a bigger world. Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women’s movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. Upon hearing Faith speak for the first time, Greer — madly in love with her boyfriend, Cory, but still full of longing for an ambition that she can’t quite place — feels her inner world light up. And then, astonishingly, Faith invites Greer to make something out of that sense of purpose, leading Greer down the most exciting path of her life as it winds toward and away from her meant-to-be love story with Cory and the future she’d always imagined.
