Flowers for springtime

It’s a sure sign of spring—Easter flowers! Aloma Peters of Lake Ariel admits the flowers she received from the Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary definitely brightened her day. The Auxiliary delivered close to 200 flowers to hospital patients in Honesdale and to residents of Wayne Woodlands Manor, Wayne Memorial’s long-term care home in

Waymart. The flowers came from Casteks, which closed its doors last year but still serves private clients. Peters, who is in the Wayne MemorialGood Shepherd Inpatient Rehabilitation Center, was doubly pleased: the auxilian (right) who delivered her flowers is a good friend, Dottie Wilcox.

& PROTECT $ Odyssey Elite: quality $ SAVE ENERGY YOUR HOME WITH SIDING, ROOFING & WINDOWS family transporter 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite Entry Price: $29,990 Price as Tested: $47,610 This week’s we’re driving the all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan, with seven or eight passenger seating starting an entry of just $29,990 for the base LX model. For 2018, it’s now in its fifth generation with all-new features, powerful V6 engine. Major changes are many. Important new features include a new trail-arm suspension, first-ever Honda passenger and driver-knee airbags, more quiet cabin, top passenger and cargo space, wider rear tailgate that allows 4-foot-by-8-foot sheet placement with seats removed/ down, 4G WiFi, more powerful engine and a new 10-speed automatic transmission. If you start with the “entry” Odyssey LX, you’ll receive most all of the modern-day safety equipment, air conditioning, ABS brakes, rear camera, power controls everywhere, some hightech features and driving aids that control stopping and traction. Those who desire a quality family transporter need to take notice. Now if you move up one notch to the EX model at $33,860, (which I highly recommend), Honda really ups the ante with a bevy of higher-tech safety features and amenities unavailable on LE. The Odyssey models then move up progressively with more features ala EX-L at $37,360, Touring at $44,510 and then our top line tester Elite which comes in at $45,670. Add the $940 delivery, and you end up at our Odyssey’s $47,610 final retail tally. (Check your dealer for any incentives.) Built in Lincoln, Alabama, everything Honda charges extra for on the lower-level models comes standard on the Elite, including a top-tier driver safety system that not only lets you know when to brake when necessary, the forward collision mitigation will actually help stop your Odyssey in a tough situation. I highly recommend an Elite Odyssey if you can afford it as the Honda Safety Sensing package also adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings, lane keep-assist and road-departure mitigation. Outwardly, the new Odyssey is a great looking minivan that adheres to Honda’s “Lightning Bolt” design philosophy. Complimenting the new outward dynamic lines is the interior, which is very passenger-friendly with special Easy B-Slide second row seats that make third-row access non-cumbersome. A new infotainment system and electrical platform is just another of this minivan’s complete upgrade that includes all of today’s top Bluetooth and Smartphone bells and whistles. Perhaps Odyssey’s top feature is

driving manners, be it on the freeway or country road. All Odysseys come with a powerful 3.5-liter V6 producing 280-horsepower, and 262 lb. ft. of torque. Expect 19-mpg city and 28-mpg highway as a new generation 10-speed automatic overdrive transmission (yes, a 10 speed) is now standard in the Touring and Elite line. How important is the 10-speed? Well, the last Honda Odyssey we drove came with a 248-horsepower 3.5-V6 and a six-speed automatic, and it delivered the same 19 city and 28 highway numbers. Presto to today, and you have an additional 32 horsepower under your right foot as Odyssey 2018 generates the same fuel mileage numbers. This powertrain is very peppy and when you mat the throttle to pass or merge, it sounds like a Honda race inspired V6 thanks to its throaty sound. Underneath, the new suspension coupled to great traction, high quality 19-inch Bridgestone Turanza tires on machine alloy wheels make this Odyssey a fun van to drive that looks just as good. The LE, EX and EX-L models rely on a ninespeed automatic, with identical EPA ratings. The main nine-speed difference results in a 500 less lb. tow capacity. Our Elite model came standard with the top line 11-speaker, surround sound stereo with rear-seat entertainment movie system that can impress even the most finicky of entertainment fans. The BluRay DVD movie system with wireless headsets, available for the rear passengers, is outstanding and a nice option when traveling with the children. The navigation is a Garmin design that works well with voice recognition amongst its top features. I’d love to talk about the leather interior a bit more, but I’ll leave that and the other 50 Odyssey Elite features to your dealer as the sales associates are waiting to explain them all in detail. Important numbers include a wheelbase of 118.1, 4,593 lb. curb weight, 3,500 lb. tow capacity (3,000 lb. capacity with nine-speed automatic), from 32.8 to a massive 155.7 cu ft. of cargo space, 39.6 ft. turn capacity and a 19.5-gallon fuel tank. Safety ratings from government crash testing also come in at Five Stars. Overall, there’s lots to cheer about with this new Honda Odyssey minivan as it offers everything that is good in a modern minivan and then some. From the new roomy interior for seven or eight passengers to the magic slide second row and 60/40 fold down third row seat, it’s the best minivan I’ve driven this year. Likes: New design, great interior, expansive cargo, power, fuel economy. Dislikes: For maximum cargo, you have to remove the second row seats. (Greg Zyla is a syndicated auto columnist.)

‘West Side Story’ at North Pocono

North Pocono High School will present “West Side Story” as its spring theater production. Performance dates include a senior citizen preview on Thursday, April 12, which features a dinner before the show and requires reservations, and public performances on Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14. All performances will be held in the high school auditorium. The senior citizen preview on April 12 begins with a 5 p.m. dinner in the high school cafeteria, and curtain time for the show is 6 p.m. This special evening is free for all senior citizens, but reservations are necessary and can be made by calling 570-842-7606. The deadline for reservations is Friday, April 6. Free rides to the senior preview are available, door to door, for local patrons. Call 570-842-7659, Option 8, for more information about the free ride. Tickets will be available at the door and cost $10; $6 for students and senior citizens. “What makes this play so rich to direct is the opportunity to explore beyond the obvious themes and reach for those that lie deeply embedded within the script,” said Geraldine Featherby, theater director at North Pocono. “I chose to focus on the theme of forgiveness at the very end of the musical. It mirrors the last lines of the Shakespeare’s play, ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ on which this musical is based. It is something we all need in today’s world in order to love without boundaries.” The leads are played by seniors Gabe Ramos as Tony; Haley Zemek as Maria; Nate Whitney as Riff; Zane Horger as Bernardo; and junior Regina Steele as Anita. Supporting roles are played by juniors Frank Santomauro as Action and Reese Anderson as Doc.

Hunger action workshop A Hunger Action Workshop was recently at Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus in Tannersville, with dozens of food pantry directors, volunteers and community service agencies present. The event served as an opportunity to present the research results of a nutritional food assessment of Monroe County’s emergency and supplemental food providers, in partnership with United Way of Monroe County. Supplemental food providers from across the region attended, where they received food safety and civil rights training. This also served as an opportunity for agencies to share tips and ideas for better operations and coordination. The event featured a research presentation from Sydney Huerbin, on the nutritional quality of food pantries in Monroe County, implemented in partnership with United Way and the Pocono Mountains Hunger Coalition. Huerbin’s research looked at the nutri-

tional quality of foods that are distributed through our community’s emergency and supplemental food system. There is a lot of evidence across the country that food insecurity (about 12 percent in Monroe County) can lead to increased health challenges including obesity and diabetes, in part due to the poor-quality of food that low-income families are able to access because it is often cheaper and more readily available. “When we think about helping people, it is important for us to work together toward decreasing already existing health disparities, so that we are helping in a constructive way.” said Jennifer Strauch, vice president of community impact at United Way of Monroe County. Using Feeding America’s “Foods to Encourage” (F2E) guidelines to identify healthier more nutritious foods, Huerbin and her team visited eleven food pantries in the area, looking at food held in storage as well as what was ultimately given out to clients. Her findings? Mixed. When looking at foods stored in the food pantries by weight, nearly 75 percent of the food met the F2E guidelines. However, when looking at food by number of items, the number meeting F2E reduced to 50 percent, and then down to 28 percent when looking at number of items that were actually distributed to small families. Furthermore, when Huerbin and her team compared food pantries that receive support from the state that have dedicated funds to purchase some of their food, compared to those that more heavily rely on donated food, the results showed that the state supported programs were better off. That is, donated food alone may mean less quality. “There are a bunch of things going on here,” noted Huerbin. “It seems that if agencies have more funds instead of donated food, they are going to be able to provide healthier food. The pantry directors seem to understand the need and value of providing healthy food, but just don’t have the resources to purchase quality food. In addition, though, there likely needs to be some community education, as individuals accessing these pantries may be gravitating toward the less-healthy food. This could mean cooking demos or better information about how to prepare certain healthier foods that are available.”
