One-room schoolhouse to hold an open house

A special open house is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m. at 485 Church Road in Eldred Township. This is only the third time in 70 years that the school has been opened to the general public. In 1855 the Town of Eldred had seven one-room schoolhouses. Students sat in rows on benches and took notes with chalk on pieces of slate (the same slate that the roof of the school was made from). All grades, from the first to the eighth, were taught in that one room. The room was heated by a simple potbelly stove and light was provided by large windows on three walls. The fourth wall was filled with a huge chalkboard. Ninety years later, with the advent of school buses, the students were consolidated from the Frantz, Barlieb, Christman, Correll, Smith Gap and Kleintop schools

at the Gower School. Each of these schools were named for the family on whose property the school stood, and today these names are not just reflected in the names of roads but in the descendents of these civic-minded families still living in Eldred. The Barlieb, Christman and Gower buildings are gone. The Kleintop and Smith Gap were saved and repurposed as homes. Reportedly, the Correll is too deteriorated to be saved, but the Frantz School has been refurbished. On Oct. 7, visitors will be able to stand in the old school house and see the original desks and chalk board. The schoolhouse and grounds are being repaired and maintained by a group of neighbors.

Women throughout Wayne County and the Greater Carbondale Region will have increased access to life-saving breast cancer screenings, thanks to a “big pink van” housing a digital mammography system. The mobile mammography program will be available at Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers’ family health centers in Hamlin, Lake Como, Vandling and Carbondale. Wayne Memorial officials say the program was initiated to address a community need. “Wayne Memorial offers digital mammography at the hospital in Honesdale and at our Lords Valley office in Pike County, but

many women in other parts of our service area such as northern Wayne are not always able to get to those facilities,” said Wayne Memorial CEO David Hoff. “Higher rates of breast cancer are often seen in areas where screenings are not easily accessible. Early detection saves lives.” The mobile mammography program received funding from the Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, the AllOne Foundation and the USDA’s Distance Learning & Telemedicine program. “This project would not have happened without them,” said Hoff. The van will be staffed by mammography

technologists from Wayne Memorial, whose mammography program is certified by the American College of Radiology. Wayne Memorial performs close to 5,000 mammograms each year. To make an appointment for a screening in the mobile unit, patients with a prescription from their provider may call Wayne Memorial’s Central Scheduling Department at 570-251-6689.

The other night at a restaurant, I looked through a wine list that included pinot gris and pinot grigio as selections, and I asked the server the difference, interested in how she would describe it. She admitted, honestly, that she wasn’t sure and offered to get the wine steward. The answer is that pinot gris and pinot grigio are synonyms, referring to the same grape. The difference is more of style and maybe marketing. A producer using pinot gris, generally, is trying to emulate the pinot gris of Alsace, the cool, Saxon-tinged region of France that makes dry, silky, aromatic white wines from riesling, pinot gris and gewurtraminer. You’ll hear winery tasting room talk regarding riesling, although it simplifies the matter. An “Alsationstyle” riesling will be dry. A sweeter riesling will be “Mosel-style,” referring to a region known for sweeter rieslings. By using the name pinot grigio, producers suggests their wine is light, crisp and very acidic, like the style made in much of Italy. When pinot grigio took off in popularity, some pinot gris makers changed the grape name to catch the craze. With so much mediocre pinot grigio out there, consumers may now view pinot gris as a cut above. I tried some pinot gris recently, leaving out Alsace, whose wines can be somewhat hard to find and often at above-average prices. Sometimes, I think every white wine

from New Zealand tastes a little bit like sauvignon blanc, and this Hillersden 2014 Marlborough Pinot Gris is no exception. The wine shows character of lime and kiwifruit and has a very rich texture and a hint of sweetness with a dried fruit character. This one is old for a white of this style, with the age coming across in the color and the finish. But this is not quite over-the-hill yet and a good price if you plan to drink it now. $11. HHH 1/2 Pinot gris is a mutation, a descendant of pinot noir. All the pinots like cooler weather and have found a home in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon gives us Wine by Joe Dobbs 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris. Very Alsation and food-friendly, this balanced wine doesn’t color outside the lines, making it an excellent accompaniment to food. The wine shows peach and apple character with a mouthwatering acidity with the fruit character hanging on through the finish. $15. HHHH 1/2 Nine Hats Horse Heaven Hills 2016 Pinot Gris from Washington state is straightforward, with flavors of fresh Gala apples, a brush of sweetness in the front and closing with a tight acidity. This tastes like America. $15. HHHH If you are a fan of pinot grigio, give a gris a chance. GRADE: Exceptional HHHHH, Above average HHHH, Good HHH, Below average HH, Poor H.

WMH breaks ground

Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) recently broke ground on construction for the biggest expansion in its history. Close to 200 people attended the ceremony. The Honesdale-based hospital is building a new 85,000 square foot patient tower which will house 50 private patient rooms. The private rooms are designed to help reduce the potential for infection, reduce noise, increase communication between the patient and his/her clinical team and enhance comfort. At the same time, the hospital is renovating 35,000 square feet of existing space, including expanding and adding more private space to chemotherapy and wound care. Wayne Memorial Board Chairman Dirk Mumford and CEO David Hoff both called the $40 million project “exciting and significant.” From left: WMH board member Wendell Hunt; Susan Mancuso, WMH board secretary; James Pettinato, WMH director patient care services; state Rep.

Halloween is a special day that delights children of all ages and helps adults feel like kids at heart. Few people want the fun to end once trick-or-treating is over. By throwing a Halloween party, revelers can continue celebrating well into the evening. When hosting a Halloween party, it helps to determine who will be in attendance before making any plans. Parties that include children should be PG in nature, and hosts should find the right balance between scary and fun. While you want to have a certain measure of the macabre, make sure you don’t send young guests home with nightmares. Reserve gruesome decorations and details for adult-only parties. Halloween parties do not necessarily need to be ghoulish to be fun. Try a glittery gala masquerade party or decorate exclusively in orange and black. Classically eerie parties may feature ravens and crows, or they can be subtlely spooky with red candles and heavy curtains. Many people can’t wait to dress up for a Halloween party, even picking out their costumes months in advance. Still, not everyone feels comfortable donning a costume. To welcome all guests, don’t make costumes mandatory. One way around this is to set up a Halloween Disguise Table full of accessories that anyone can borrow and use to alter their appearance. Goofy

glasses, strange hats, adhesive mustaches, or masks can be fun. If someone didn’t feel comfortable dressing in full costume, he or she may be more apt to pop in a set of plastic fangs or put on a spinning bow tie. Food is an integral part of any party and can enhance Halloween soirées. Candy is a pivotal component of Halloween and you can play off that theme at your party. Set up a candy bar full of appropriately hued candies of all shapes and sizes. Put them on display in clear glass or plastic canisters so they add to your Halloween décor. Some people like to get creative with Halloween cuisine, crafting foods into items that may look like parts of the body or other symbols of the holiday. Cookie cutters can turn sandwiches, desserts, biscuits, and many other foods into different shapes. However, foods also can be made a tad more spooky simply by renaming them or presenting them in interesting containers. Why not serve punch out of a fish aquarium? Other beverages can be housed in jugs or old bottles and labeled “potions.” Use laboratory instruments, such as petri dishes, vials and beakers, to serve snacks. A Halloween party makes for a fun night, and there is no limit to what hosts can do when planning their scary soirées.

Halloween pumpkincarving pointers Transforming pumpkins into cleverly carved creations is a Halloween tradition. Each October, glowing pumpkins take up residence near doorsteps and porches, adding to the magical ambiance of the season. Young and old spend time designing their themes and then taking knife to pumpkin to achieve the desired effects. Carving pumpkins into jack-olanterns can be traced back centuries to Ireland and a story about “Stingy Jack.” The tale involves Jack outwitting the Devil twice, the second time freeing the Devil from a prank in exchange for the promise that he would not claim Jack’s soul should Jack die. When Jack did die, God did not want the unsavory character in heaven, but the Devil could not claim Jack for hell. Therefore, Jack was relegated to roam the planet indefinitely with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put that coal into a carved-out turnip. His ghostly figure was referred to as “Jack of the Lantern.” Later on it was shortened to “Jack O Lantern.” When Irish immigrants arrived in North America, turnips weren’t plentiful, so jack-o-lanterns were instead carved into pumpkins. Today, many people carve jack-o-lanterns, with some featuring just smiling or grimacing faces while others are far more artistic creations. These tips can help anyone carve a pumpkin. • Begin with a fresh pumpkin. Look for a pumpkin with a green stem. If the pumpkin has been sitting around for too long or has been handled too much, the stem can get brittle and/or fall off. A thick, fresh pumpkin is best for carving. • Plan your ideas. Draw a plan for your pumpkin before you make your first cut. Then transfer that design to the pumpkin with pen or a thin marker. Pumpkin-carving kits come with designs that can be “traced” by poking small holes to create the outline of the design. • Don’t cut all the way through. Many professional pumpkin artists do not actually cut clear through the flesh of the pumpkin. They carve and shave off layers of the outer

rind until it becomes more translucent. The level of transparency can be adjusted based on how much skin is removed and as a way to add texture and shadowing. The more air that is allowed to penetrate the pumpkin, the faster it will start to degrade. • Delay carving until the last minute. Wait until the day before Halloween to begin carving. Pumpkins are a perishable item, and they’ll begin to rot as soon as you begin carving. Spritzing them with water can help them stay fresh, but there’s no turning back the clock once the first cut is made. • Cut a hole in the back. According to Brooklyn-based Maniac Pumpkin Carvers, cutting off the top of the pumpkin can affect its structural integrity and cause it to rot faster. Instead, cut a hole in the back of the pumpkin and use an electric light to illuminate it. LEDs are adviseable because they don’t generate much heat, which can cook and rot the pumpkin from the inside out. With some creativity and a little knowhow, anyone can create an eye-catching jack-o-lantern. TS_CNG/POCONO_TIMES/PAGES [P07] | 10/02/17

Breast Cancer Awareness

A Family Owned & Operated Business Serving the Local Community Since 1969

Lesser-known symptoms of breast cancer

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 produce 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, breastsize 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 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. • 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.

Mixed media works by artist Yvonne Love will be featured in an exhibit titled Alluvial Plain through Oct. 27 at East Stroudsburg University’s Madelon Powers Gallery. “The work in the series Alluvial Plain is a reflection of an internal and transient exploration of place,” Love noted. “My process is an immediate response to juxtaposed materials, whether combining modeling paste and resin or porcelain and glass. “Part of my process is finding my work in nature,” Love added, “whether it is the movement of a bird’s wings, ice formations on the surface of the water, or sedimentary deposits over time; each momentary, each changing.” A reception for Love will be held Wednesday, Oct. 4, 4-6 p.m. in the gallery.

New model joins Wrangler family By Greg Zyla

Automotive writer

2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4x4 Entry Price: $23,295 Price as Tested: $37,960 This week, we’re driving the 2017 Jeep Wrangler two-door, the smaller version of the Wrangler family that also offers an extendedwheelbase, four-door version called Wrangler Unlimited. Our smaller Wrangler Sahara perhaps zeros in closer to the true Wrangler legacy, which dates back to the World War II era. The modern day Wrangler not only shares DNA with the original 1941 Willys Jeep, it, to this day, has no real market competitor. This comes thanks to Jeep loyal (and even cult like) consumers who, regardless of age demographic, gleefully enjoy an ever expanding Wrangler lineup that now boasts over 26 different Wranglers to choose from in two- or four-door trim. Other manufacturers have tried to compete along the way, but none have been able to penetrate the magic of owning a Jeep Wrangler. To further explain the Jeep legacy, in 1941 Willys-Overland took the newly developed 80-inch wheelbase transport military vehicle (see photo) direct to Washington, D.C., and had then-Sen. James Meade of New York, along with four passengers, drive the new Willys “Scout” Jeep straight up the 365 steps that lead to the U.S. Capitol. Meade turned around at the top and drove the Jeep back down the steps without a hitch much to the surprise of the many government officials and press photographers that had gathered. Not surprisingly, Willys-Overland won the military contract on the spot. Fast forward to 2017, and Fiat Chrysler hasn’t forgotten these family tree roots. Of the 13 distinct two door Wrangler models available, you’ll find two models that utilize the branding birthright, namely a Willys Wheeler W 4x4 that starts at $30,395 or a Willys Wheeler 4x4 that starts at $28,295. The difference between the two is a heavy duty Tru Lok rear differential in the “W” model versus a conventional rear differential in the standard Willys Wrangler. All Wranglers, however, come with a distinctive “since 1941” logo in the interior that reminds the driver of where the Wrangler came from. For those working on a tight budget, the entry Sport 4x4 four passenger two-door starts at just $23,295 and then graduates through 11 more models to the ultimate Wrangler Rubicon Recon, that starts at $39,145. Our “in-between” Sahara starts at $30,445 and comes with a heavy duty gas shock suspension. The Sahara package costs $1,400 more and also adds body colored grille with silver metallic and a five-

speed automatic, which replaces the standard six-speed manual transmission. Our tester also featured an optional $1,995 Freedom Top hardtop, which is a color matched three piece design that replaces the high quality Bestop manufactured soft top, the latter of which is standard equipment on all Wranglers since 1986. What’s really neat about all Wranglers is that when the sun shines and you want to frolic at the beach or in the mountains, it literally transforms into an open air fun machine as the doors and top are removable for ultimate open air adventures be it Freedom hardtop or Bestop soft top. Under the hood sits a powerful 24-valve 3.6-liter V6 engine putting out 285 horses and 260 lb. ft. of torque. The heavy duty five-speed automatic transmission comes with hill descent and is designed especially for more rugged 4x4 outings. Built in Toledo, Ohio, all Wranglers are classified as SUVs and do not compare well to automobiles in safety ratings or ultimate comfort features. Some will find entry to be cumbersome, road noise high and handling not that great. But when you take this same Jeep off road or drive in a snowstorm, the Wrangler then becomes an outstanding vehicle. Further, if you drive the smooth freeways, a Wrangler is comfortable considering its multi-tasking genes. Other options our tester included were a remote start for $495, enhanced air conditioner with automatic temp control for $395, an Alpine Premium stereo upgrade for $945 that adds a 40 gig hard drive, nine speakers with all-weather subwoofer, NAV, 6.5 inch touch display, SiriusXM for one year and a five year SiriusXM travel subscription. An engine block heater for $95 and delivery charges of $995 brought the final tally to $37,960 retail. Important numbers include a wheelbase of 95.4 inches, 3,976 lb. curb weight, 18.6 gal. fuel tank, 17 city and 21 highway fuel mileage, 2,000 lb. tow capacity, 8.3 inch ground clearance and 12.8 to 56.5 cu. ft. of cargo capacity. In summary, until you own a Jeep Wrangler you just won’t understand why this vehicle is so darn popular. You’ll quickly become aware of the many Wranglers on the road, which was half the fun of this test drive. Then, when you add the other Jeeps like Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Patriot, Compass and Renegade to the fray, you finally realize that the Jeep brand vehicle is probably more valuable to the Chrysler franchise than any other vehicle it produces, including Dodge and Chrysler minivans.
