Local resident serves in the Navy A 2014 Pocono Mountain West High School graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy aboard Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, the premier naval air installation in the Pacific Northwest region. Petty officer third class Jessica Boutieller is an aviation structural mechanic serving with Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10. A Navy aviation structural mechanic is responsible for working on the frame, metalwork, brakes, tires, landing gears and all flight controls and hydraulic systems on the P-3C aircraft. “I like keeping busy,” said Boutieller. “We all work together to get the job done. Even though we work long hours, we make the best of it.” According to Navy officials, Wing 10 has continued to fly combat missions in direct support of the troops on the ground and delivered traditional maritime capabilities, real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. Beginning in the 1960s, the P-3C Orion, a land-based, long-range anti-submarine warfare patrol aircraft, replaced the P-2V Neptune fleet. After 50 years of faithful service and the 50th anniversary of maritime patrol and reconnaissance force, the P-3C Orion is being phased out of the fleet and replaced by the P-8A Poseidon, according to Navy officials. The P-8A is a modified Boeing airframe featuring a fully connected, state-of-the-art, open architecture mission system designed for long-range anti-submarine warfare; antisurface warfare; and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, Navy officials explained. “Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10 mans, trains, and equips P-3 and P-8 squadrons to deploy anywhere, anytime,” said Capt. Robert W. Patrick, Commodore of CPRW-10. “These forces are the nation’s first choice for broad

area maritime surveillance and rapid response around the world. This is critically important, as we are the eyes and the ears of our national defense, putting pressure on strategic locations around the world. Our sailors are the single biggest asymmetric advantage that allow us to succeed at our missions. Without our sailors’ agility and expertise, we would not be able to do what we do.” Boutieller is part of a crew striving to be the best Naval Aviation Wing in the United States, according to Navy Officials. Their mission is to safely build and maintain a team of sailors capable of conducting prompt and sustained combat operations. “This is the first command I have served with,” Boutieller said. “We look out for each other and the shop will come together to make sure the mission is accomplished.” According to Navy officials, the Navy continues to meet milestone after milestone on this world-class mission and is providing an aircraft with superior capabilities to the men and women in uniform that will have a lasting legacy promoting a global maritime strategy. “Serving in the Navy gives me a sense of belonging,” Boutieller added. “I feel like I am a part of something bigger than I would with any other job.”

‘Our Land, Our Water’

Monroe County municipal leaders need accurate, complete information to make good choices for preserving land to keep drinking water safe. Providing that information is the purpose of a new partnership between Brodhead Watershed Association and Monroe County Planning Commission, with funding from the Open Space Institute. The goal is to create a leaders’ guide based on water science, with detailed maps of land that is most important to keeping water pure naturally. The “Plan for Clean Water” project team also includes representatives from Pocono Heritage Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy, Wildlands Conservancy, Monroe County Conservation District, North Pocono CARE and Aquashicola-Pohopoco Watershed Association, Brodhead Creek Regional Authority, and municipalities such as Smithfield and Stroud townships. Many municipalities have funds to protect forested land and water, but need information to use those funds wisely — and to explain the “why” of their decisions to constituents. The reports, maps and data this project provides will help officials do just that. The research will pinpoint properties that would provide the most protection for water quality and quantity if they remain natural and undeveloped. The summary report, “Our Land,

Our Water,” will set out the findings of the technical studies in plain English. It will include a matrix of lands important for drinking-water protection, stream flow and quality, and groundwater recharge. Detailed maps will make clear the best land for protecting water. The work will be completed by late 2018 and delivered to county and municipal elected officials — with tailored guidance for each. Jackson, Paradise, Smithfield and other municipalities have such funds available. Some have asked for exactly this kind of information. Now, they’ll have concrete guidance for protecting citizens’ drinking water. For information about the program, visit brodheadwatershed.org/PlanforCleanWater.html.

Bike Park in Progress

Middle Smithfield and Smithfield Townships are working on building a bike park at River’s Edge, which will be known as River’s Edge Family Bike Park. The park is located on River Road in Smithfield Township near Delaware Water Gap and is expected to open by the fall. The townships would like to thank Steve Schmidt of Cleveland Brothers of Pittston for donating a Caterpillar bulldozer for two weeks to help get the project going. The normal cost of a bulldozer is $2,800 per week, so this donation is a huge saving for the townships. The bike park will include several beginner-level hills and tracks. The park is focused on beginners and children so that the whole family can enjoy the park. The townships plan to expand the park in the future with additional features as funding becomes available. River’s Edge Park was formed under the Eastern Monroe Regional Park Commission, which also formed Mt. Nebo Park on Mt. Nebo Road. Both parks are administered jointly by Middle Smithfield and Smithfield townships.

Donor Pledges Matching Funds

An anonymous donor has pledged to match gifts up to $50,000 toward construction of the Brodhead Creek Heritage Center at ForEvergreen Nature Preserve, 1539 Cherry Lane Road, Stroud Township. A joint project of local non-profits Brodhead Watershed Association and Pocono Heritage Land Trust, construction on the center is expected to begin in late summer. The center will provide space at the preserve for offices, environmental education, public events, nature displays and a fly fishing exhibit. The 40-acre ForEvergreen Preserve is on the site of a former golf course and is owned by Stroud Township. The preserve is being restored to its natural state, with native plants and a demonstration rain garden. It is open to the public dawn to dusk and includes walking and running paths and access to the historic Brodhead Creek for catchand-release fly fishing. This stretch of the creek is well-known among trout enthusiasts as the birthplace of fly fishing in America. The match ends Dec. 31. For information or to donate, visit brodheadcreekheritage.org or call 570-8391120 or PHLT at 570-424-1514.

Student Ambassadors Make their Case

State Sen. John Blake recently hosted 22 high school seniors from 19 local school districts for a legislative competition at the University of Scranton as the final event of the 2017 Student Ambassador Program. The student ambassadors from schools across the 22nd Senatorial District were given an opportunity to make a presentation on a legislative or policy issue to a panel of judges that included Sen. Blake; Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas Judge Julia Munley; Dr. Jean Harris, professor of Political Science and Women’s Studies at the University of Scranton; and Kyle Mullins, legislative director for Sen. Blake. “I continue to be impressed by the quality of the students in all of our area schools,” Blake said. “The program informs my decisions in Harrisburg.” The team of Mid Valley senior Julia Betti and Carbondale Area senior Samantha Zenker were the winners of the legislative competition for their presentation on landfill regulations. The second-place presentation was given by Michael Medaugh, Pocono Mountain East. The

third highest scoring team consisted of Abington Heights senior Tyler Kusma and Scranton senior Darren Pitts. Sen. Blake awarded the three top scoring presentations scholarship assistance for their post-secondary academic pursuits. For the presentation, the student ambassadors worked in teams of two and were tasked with putting themselves in the shoes of a state senator and proposing a new law or policy of interest to them regarding transportation, education, emergency preparedness, environmental protection or human services. Each presentation was scored by the four judges on the substance of the proposal as well as on the strength of the argument. From left, front row: Lindsay Ubaldini, Samantha Zenker, Michael Medaugh of Pocono Mountain East, Noah Siriani, Connie Taylor, Sen. Blake; Madi Augustine of North Pocono, Kella Pacifico, Ali Carroll, Dominique Quaglia, Gulnara Sadowski, Jordan Ramdial of East Stroudsburg North. Second row: Ryan Kelleher, Gabriella Williams, Julia Betti, Timothy Hopkins, James McKane, Darren Pitts, Anthony Berrios and Tyler Kusma.

Mt. Pocono Rotary makes a donation The Mt. Pocono Rotary recently donated $12,000 to Monroe County Special Olympics from funds raised at the 22nd annual Community Aviation Day Fly-In/Drive-In Breakfast held Memorial Day weekend. “We were thankful for the community support and sponsorship of this year’s event, which allowed us to present a check for $12,000 to Monroe County Special Olympics. said Vern Moyer, event co-chair and Mt. Pocono Rotary past president. “Thanks to our sponsors, attendees and the hard work of the Aviation Day volunteer committee over the years, we have been able to donate thousands to worthy causes throughout the County.” The event was founded by Moyer and John Davis more than 21 years ago and allows attendees spend time at the airport, see the aircraft displays — which this year

included a Black Hawk helicopter, take helicopter and airplane rides, and find out about how to get youth involved with aviation. It has grown to be one of the Mt. Pocono Rotary’s largest annual fundraisers with more than $150,000 raised over the years. The donation from the Mt. Pocono Rotary provided support for Monroe county athletes to attend the state championships, with several athletes qualifying to compete in the national championships. “We are already planning for next year’s event,” Moyer said, “and will begin soliciting sponsors to help us continue with giving back to our community.

Blaise Delfino, an East Stroudsburg University (ESU) master’s degree candidate, earned first place in the collegiate sector of the TecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition held recently at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Other finalists in the competition represented King’s College, Marywood University and Wilkes University. Delfino’s company, Fader Plugs LLC, created first of its kind, patent-pending adjustable earplugs. The design of the earplugs allows the wearer to adjust noise levels without taking the plug out of the ear. Delfino, also a musician, believes the product will resonate with concert goers and those in the music industry. The company is located in the ESU Innovation Center/Business Accelerator. “Blaise is an outstanding innovator and entrepreneur, he’s an accomplished student, and a musician,” said Dr. Marcia G. Welsh, president of ESU. “As a student he launched Autism Speaks U, one of the largest clubs on campus. As a recording artist he charted on the iTunes Top 100 pop charts. He’s stayed true to all of his passions while starting his

business. What he has achieved with Fader Plugs is just the beginning for young man and his business. Blaise truly is a Warrior entrepreneur.” The TecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition prize includes $100,000 of in-kind business services and $10,000 in cash. In 2016 Delfino won the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Student Business Plan Competition, which included a $10,000 cash prize. The money he won has helped develop the product and will be used to conduct pilot studies. “Team Fader put in a lot of time, energy, and effort into the competition deliverables,” Delfino said. “Winning the TecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition is a testament to our ability to work as a team, our viability as a company, and affirmation regarding market penetration.” Delfino earned a Bachelor of Science in speech-language pathology from ESU in 2014. He graduated with a Master of Science in communication sciences and disorders last month and served as the graduate student From left: Kyle Fortner, Blaise Delfino and Pete Theodoropolus. speaker at the ceremony.

Torrontés bridges the gap for sweet wine drinkers and dry wine aficionados

By David Falchek

Executive director of the American Wine Society

My sleeper hit white wine of any summer is torrontés. I’ve been pushing people to try it for years, because on the porch or poolside, it bridges the gap between sweet wine lovers and dry wine drinkers. The descendant of the moscato grape and signature grape of Argentina is being produced in an ever-expanding range of styles. Some

are off-dry to sweet and clearly channel their moscato parentage. Others torrontés are more refined and come off tasting very much like a dry riesling, with all the food pairing flexibility that goes with that style. The refreshing white wine market is very crowded. Torrontés has no significant plantings or name recognition outside Argentina. Still, torrontés’ value and quality mean that you can almost always find a few. A white wine such as torrontés does not benefit from aging — at all. It is easy to accidentally pick up one with three or more years on it (as I did) when I saw one at a good price. While I think of torrontés as a leisurely wine, some stand above and show the real potential of the grape. One of these is Zuccardi Serie A 2015 Salta Torrontés, with freshness and floral smell and flavors of banana and passionfruit — a balanced wine with an acidity that invites food such a brunch fare and seafood. This wine is closer to a dry Gewürztraminer than a moscato. $14. HHHH 1/2. Zuccardi makes a Mendoza torrontés that is even more widely available in Pennsylvania and just $10. I have not tried this one but generally, Zuccardi is a reliable brand. The floral, fruity Alamos 2015 Salta Torrontés is a typical quality torrontés, with aromas that jump out of the glass and vibrant melon and peach characters, lifted by just the right amount of sweetness, offset by a crisp finish. This is an excellent introduction to the variety. $11. HHHH 1/2. Etcetera 2014 Valle de Uco Torrontés is orangey with a hint of sweetness and a flavor of Clementine pith and a slightly bitter touch in the finish. $8. HHH 1/2. La Yunta 2013 Famatina Valley Torrontés offers a cautionary tale. The wine shows some aged character and some nuttiness. A 2013 is just too old for fresh, young wine like torrontés. Remember that in the southern hemisphere, the harvest is in the fall, so the vintage is actually about half-a-year older than those from the northern hemisphere. $7. HHH.
