A Winning Week With Wine A big week is approaching for Jessup

by Christopher Cornell

ADVAntAGe eDitor

People have been making wine in Jessup for as long as anybody can remember. Wine-making Italian immigrants brought the practice to the area in the 1800s. And for the past 23 years, the Jessup 21st Century Association has hosted its annual “Wine Tasting at Station Park” festival. This year it will be on Sunday, May 20, 1 to 4 p.m. This event will also be the kickoff St. Ubaldo week in town. This year organizers say at least nine winemakers will take part in the festivities, and will serve samples of their great homemade wines. In addition, there will also be plenty to eat, including traditional Italian food and along with the usual festival food: risotto, porketta, cannoli, sausage and peppers, Texas weiners, pizza, specialty cupcakes and expresso. Entertainment will be by Sarah Marie and Joseph Barrese. Donations will be taken at the gate. “We invite all to join us for a wonderful afternoon,” said Genevieve Lupini, president of

the association. “We now have our beautiful pavilion for everyone to relax and enjoy the day’s event.” This year’s festival also commemorates the completion of the “Make your Mark at Station Park” project. “For the engraved paver project, we chose a tree design to compliment the logo of the Association,” Lupini said. “The pavers are laid out in front of the gazebo at the front of the park. Please stop by to see the beautiful design, created by Kristen Wolfe, one of our members. We would like to thank Jessup Borough, Joe Fetcho, Eric Braun and Joe Cirba for their dedication to complete this project.” The day will also be the kickoff for the week of St. Ubaldo celebrations, leading up to the annual Race of the Saints on Saturday, May 26. Mayor Joseph Buckson Jr. will present Primo Capitano Bernie Fagnani of St. Ubaldo and Secundo Capitano Dave Whitlock of St. George the key to the city. Mayor Buckson will also present certificates to Capodieci Jeff Paone of St. Ubaldo, Chris Lemoncelli of St. George and Michael Cappelini of St. Anthony. Members of St. Ubaldo Society will be there to greet the visitors and will have their banners and scarves and sashes available for sale.

It Really Works by Craig

Atty. y Michael N. Krisa

For about two months, I’d wake up every morning hardly able to move my neck. Then it would get better as the day progressed. I figured it would eventually go away, it didn’t. I assumed the pain was from sleeping on a soft mattress. But when the pain became persistent and started interfering with my daily activities, I had to do something, so I tried Chiropractic. I didn’t have any other type of treatment so I know that Chiropractic care relieved my pain. After the third adjustment, I was already feeling so much better. Now after a few more weeks of treatment, I’d have to say that I’m 90% better. I’m back to playing sports, exercising and fishing - none of which I was able to do before having my spine adjusted. The staff was fantastic. I’m happy to tell others about my great experience. I would recommend Chiropractic to anyone with a neck problem.

Add 1/2 cup oil in a slow stream until thickened and emulsified; salt and pepper to taste, for marinade. Divide chicken and marinade between 2 large heavy-duty resealable plastic bags and seal. Turn until chicken is wellcoated. Marinate, chilled, at least 2 hours or overnight, placing bags in large bowls to catch any leaks. Whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon garlic and shallot in serving bowl. Add remaining 3 tablespoons oil in slow stream, whisking, until thickened and emulsified; salt and pepper to taste, for dressing. Add tomatoes, cilantro and basil to dressing; toss gently to coat.

LANDOWNER? Times Shamrock Outdoor is looking to lease property in high traffic areas in Lackawanna & Luzerne Counties for our growing billboard company!

May 1 is College Decision Day. The date gets this moniker because all seniors must make their college choice by that date. The pressure is off for the seniors now. The long application/acceptance journey is over and they are shown wearing the T-shirts and/or sweatshirts from the college they will attend. At Carbondale Area, seniors are premitted to wear these shirts with their uniform pants or shorts.

If you own property and are interested in a partnership with us, contact Dave today! Please contact: Dave Mehall DMehall@ShamrockNEPA.com • 570-207-8579 MAY 11, 2018
