WMH adds new new neo-natal capability

When a high-risk infant is born at Wayne Memorial Hospital, staff will now have instant access to neonatal intensive care specialists at Lehigh Valley Hospital via advanced tele-medicine equipment, funded in part by a grant from the USDA Rural Utilities Services’ Distance Learning and Telemedicine program. The audio-visual connection will allow Lehigh doctors to examine the infant in real time and assess treatment and the need, if any, for transfer. “This is a wonderful addition to our hospital and our community,” said James Pettinato, director patient care services. “In cases where a birth is predictably high risk, the mother usually delivers in a hospital with a neonatal intensive care unit on site. But many births are not predictable, and we are now in a better position to treat the baby when it’s born.” Medical conditions that might warrant use of the tele-neonatology unit include prematurity, low birth weight, intrauterine growth From left: New Beginnings clinical coordinator Janice Pettinato, Joyce Bannon, Natasha Freethy, Nancy Thompson, clinical coordina- restriction, congenital malformations (birth tor Mary Beth Dastalfo, Laura Thomas, and James Pettinato, director of patient care services. defects), sepsis, pulmonary hypoplasia and birth asphyxias. Wayne Memorial’s New Beginnings birthing suites sees about 500 births a year. Clinical coordinators Mary Beth Dastalfo and Janice Pettinato are thrilled to have the tele-neonatology. “There are very few rural community hospitals such as ours lucky enough to have this kind of resource,” said Pettinato. “We are truly thankful to Lehigh for working with us to set this up.”

Ram 2500: You’ll be noticed by Greg Zyla


2016 Ram 2500 Power Wagon 4x4 Entry Price: $51,160 Price as Tested: $56,485 This week, we’re driving the Ram 2500 Power Wagon Crew Cab 4x4, so big it is listed as a special Heavy Duty vehicle by the EPA with no MPG ratings listed. Formerly known as the Dodge Ram pickup, Chrysler decided to drop the Dodge vernacular a while back and began branding the vehicle quite well thanks to the deep, manly voice of actor Sam Elliott who was hired to do the “voice overs” for its television commercials (and still does). Coupled with a strong newspaper and magazine print campaign, the resulting success has allowed Dodge and Chrysler dealers to reap solid sales numbers from the Ram, all while the “Ram Tough” ideology is branded deep into the truck consumer’s consciousness. This brings us to the American pickup market, overall. Frankly, it’s the biggest and perhaps most profitable market in the business as more full-size pickup trucks are sold every year in comparison to any other class of automobile, be it compact, mid-size or full-size. This fact comes thanks to the evolution of what a modern truck is these days, as the former “work duty” or “farm truck” pickup is long a thing of the past. Today’s modern marvel pickup is usually loaded with work duty mechanicals and then topped off with so many creature comfort amenities they mimic today’s higher-dollar luxury cars. Clearly, there’s nothing quite like an American built full size pickup. Our tester Ram Power Wagon came with a standard 6.4 liter Hemi V8 that I would think will deliver 13 city and at least 16 highway EPA fuel mileage. The hemi connects to a heavy duty six-speed automatic transmission that transfers power through a 4.10 ratio rear gear. The result is a 4x4 pickup that will light the tires up if you’re not careful yet still deliver “acceptable for its size” fuel mileage if driven in a normal manner. Every 2016 Ram Power Wagon 2500 Crew Cab 4x4 comes equipped with special off-road equipment that assures you won’t bottom out. Matter of fact, our Power Wagon sat so high I had to remember I was “way up there” when getting out. Granted,

the Power Wagon with its special exterior graphics and ultra-high stance may not be a pickup for everyone, but I’ll guarantee you’ll be noticed wherever you may roam. If some serious “work truck” performance is at hand, fret not. The 392-inch, 6.4 liter hemi delivers 410-horses and offers 429 lb. ft. of torque and can tow some pretty heavy cargo. The choice is yours as to engines, but rest assured your Power Wagon is ready to perform. Notable is the availability of a 5.7 Hemi in other 2500 series trucks along with the Cummins Diesel option, the latter a bruiser of a 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel that can tow up to 17,980 pounds and delivers 800 lb. ft. of torque. However, due to Cummings engine heavier weight, it is not offered in the off-road specific 2500 Power Wagon. As for pricing, an entry level rear drive half-ton Ram V6 1500 Tradesman starts at just $26,145 while the 4x4 Tradesman begins at $30,615. If you need more heavy duty build, set your sights on the ultimate 3500 series Ram, another popular vehicle with workers and those who need to tow some serious cargo. Options on our three-quarter-ton Power Wagon include a $1,005 Uconnect 8.4 system that includes a USB and auxiliary media connect, GPS navigation, HD radio, one year of Uconnect and SiriusXM, and five years of SiriusXM Travel Link. Also on the option list are recommended Park View rear cameras for $245, Park Sense front and rear assist program for $395, a remote start for $225 and a very nice spray in bed liner for $495. An optional 40/20/40 front bench seat package that includes fold flat floor storage, power driver seat and rear 60/40 split seats costs another $900 while a luxury group adds another $695 with some nice amenities. I feel all of these options are priced properly and your Ram dealer is ready to explain them all. The heavy duty suspension finds a beefed up five-link front coupling with a leaf spring rear setup. The result is a “bumpy road, bumpy ride; smooth road, smooth ride” experience. Also part of the standard heavy duty items are skid plates, tow hooks, trailer tow four-pin connector, trailer brake controller and even a front mounted power winch. Likes: Looks, heavy duty suspension, real off-road performance, big and brawny. Dislikes: Parking a major concern, high step in, but running boards would affect ground clearance.

ESU student is a finalist in business plan competition

East Stroudsburg University senior Tammy Tuckey was selected as one of 17 semifinalists in the sixth annual Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) student business plan competition. Tuckey, a business management major, submitted her business, The Tiara Talk Show, a YouTube channel talk show featuring actors, composers and cast members of the Walt Disney Co. or its subsidiaries, in the competition. More than 200 students from across the Commonwealth competed. Student finalists will be selected in early March and the winners will be announced at the Business Plan Awards ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, April 5, at the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg.

This is the third year that Tuckey was selected as a semifinalist in the competition. “The talk show idea came to me after noticing there were not many female-directed Disney-themed podcasts,” Tuckey said. “Winning the competition would help to expand advertising for the show.” Tuckey is graduating a year early and plans to continue The Tiara Talk Show after graduation. The business plan competition is hosted by the Pennsylvania State System of High Education and is open to the 107,000 students enrolled in the state system universities. Students compete for the chance to win three cash prizes: $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $2,500 for third place. The main focus of the

competition is to create an environment of business growth and entrepreneurship across the Commonwealth. Many previous student business plan winners have gone on to the launch their businesses in Pennsylvania. Since the launch of the competition in 2012, ESU student Jonathan Weber won first place and $10,000. In 2013, Thomas Rounsville won second place and $5,000 and in 2016 Blaise Delfino won first place and $10,000. In addition to Tammy Tuckey, 17 ESU students submitted ideas in the 2016-17 competition. For more information about ESU’s participation in the PASSHE business plan competition, call 570-422-7953 or email mgildea1@

East Stroudsburg University students will be traveling to Otzenhausen, Germany for a 13-day study abroad experience. From left: Matthew Deegan, Christopher Cummings, Anthony Honorowski, Daren Sealey, William Evans, Johalys Marte Reyes, James Gerrish, Nicholas Jauch, Sarah Kendl, Mackenzie Strunk and Dr. Leif Johan Eliasson.

Students at East Stroudsburg University (ESU) of Pennsylvania are taking part in a new collaborative program with West Chester University and the European Academy in Otzenhausen, Germany. Ten ESU students will attend the inaugural “European Spring Academy: Transatlantic Relations” seminar at the European Academy in Otzenhausen in March. The European Academy in Otzenhausen is a leading international center that organizes seminars on a variety of topics for universities from across the globe. “This new academic program is intended to further students’ understanding of international affairs, different cultures, global history, international economics, trade and security,” said Dr. Leif Johan Eliasson, ESU professor of political science. “We want to provide ESU and WCU students an opportunity to learn first-hand from policy makers, academics and business representatives about the world’s largest single market, the European Union and its relations with the United States.” The main seminar lectures and workshops will be conducted over 10 intense days at the

academy in Otzenhausen, Germany. In addition, the seminar also includes visits to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France; NATO headquarters and the European Council in Brussels, Belgium; European stability mechanism, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, and presentations by policy makers. Dr. Eliasson will hold a half-day workshop on transatlantic trade as part of the program. “This is an exciting opportunity for me. The academic lectures and workshops will give us a chance to gain a new perspective on things we’ve typically only thought about from an American point of view,” said Mackenzie Strunk, a junior majoring in political science. “It is going to be great be immersed in a new culture personally and academically.” ESU students attending the “European Spring Academy: Transatlantic Relations” seminar are Anthony Honorowski of Tannersville, William Evans of Mountain Top, Nicholas Jauch of Dingmans Ferry, Johalys Marte Reyes, Christopher Cummings of Effort, Matthew Deegan, Daren Sealey of Effort, Sarah Kendl of Milford, Mackenzie Strunk of East Stroudsburg and James Gerrish.
