Clarks Green officials plan inaugural recyling festival By Linda Scott

SPEciaL to tHE aBinGton SUBURBan

There are ways to recycle and reuse materials. Paper, glass, newspapers, magazines, cans and plastic bottles can be recycled. Other items such as eye glasses, clothing and personal care items can be reused. Clarks Green Borough is holding its first annual recycling event “Be Green in Clarks Green” on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be held at the Abington Heights Administration Building, 200 E. Grove St. in Clarks Summit. “When I became Mayor of Clarks Green, I said I’d do a recycling event,” said Clarks Green Mayor Patty Lawler. “Many of the people participating in the event are Clarks Green residents. Clarks Green council president Joe Barrasse came up with the name for the event. Council members Dave Rinaldi, M.J. Igoe and Bill Toms have all helped with planning the event.” “The Laurel Garden Club was established 62 years ago. It is named after the Pennsylvania state flower,” said Carla Preate Laurel Garden Club past president. “The mission of the garden club is to encourage and perpetuate interest in growing, arranging, displaying and utilizing the beauties in nature as found in indoor

and outdoor gardening. It is also to arouse public interest in conserving the natural resources of our community and country. Our group is comprised of more than 100 members and growing. We will be at the recycling event to answer gardening questions and we will have perennials available for purchase.” “I grow roses,” said John Raike, a Laurel Garden Club member. “I worked at Longwood Gardens as the rose garden caretaker.” “I will have a digital piano and my students will perform,” said Denise Knox, Knox Piano Studio. “They will play all kinds of music including contemporary, classic and jazz. The students will be sharing fabulous music with everyone and sharing what they have learned.” “I will be performing magic tricks,” said Benjamin Knox, son of Denise Knox. “People will be surprised.” “The Lackawanna County Audubon Society encourages people to enjoy birds,” said Carol Lizell of the Audubon society. The society will have bird identification books, the society newsletter and pictures from magazines of birds.” The Lackawanna State Park will also have an exhibit. “I and my wife will be selling homemade welcome signs and serving trays made from reclaimed wood” said Dale Smolley who is an exhibitor. “Dale sands and stencils the wood,” said Kathleen Smolley an exhibitor. “I hand paint the sunflowers.” The event will also have money raffle baskets and rocks painted by the Clarks

NO W hea r thi s By Jeanie Sluck

lackawanna county library System Taylor community library

New audio books at the Abington Community Library. “Hag-Seed” by Margaret Atwood Felix is at the top of his game as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions are amazed and confounded. Now he’s staging a Tempest like no one else, not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds. That was the plan. Instead, after an act of treachery, Felix is living in exile, haunted by memories of his daughter and brewing revenge. After twelve years, revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here, Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It’s magic. Will it remake Felix as his enemies fall? “The Dollhouse” by Fiona Davis When she arrives at the famed Barbizon Hotel Darby McLaughlin is everything her modeling agency roommates aren’t. She’s plain, self-conscious, homesick, and utterly convinced she doesn’t belong a notion the models do nothing to disabuse. When Darby befriends Esme, she’s introduced to an entirely new side of New York City: seedy downtown jazz clubs where the music is as addictive as the heroin that’s used there, the startling sounds of bebop, and even the possibility of romance. Over half a century later, the Barbizon’s gone condo and most of its past guests are forgotten. Rumors of Darby’s involvement in a deadly skirmish with a hotel maid back in 1952 haunt the halls of the building as surely as the melancholy music that floats from the elderly woman’s rent-controlled apartment. It’s a combination too intoxicating for journalist Rose Lewin, Darby’s upstairs neighbor, to resist, not to mention the perfect distraction from her own imploding personal life. Yet as Rose’s obsession deepens, the ethics of her investigation become increasingly murky, and neither woman will remain unchanged when the shocking truth is finally revealed. “The Punishment She Deserves” by Elizabeth George The cozy, bucolic town of Ludlow is

stunned when one of its most revered citizens, Ian Druitt, is accused of a serious crime. While in police custody, Ian is found dead. Did he kill himself or was he murdered? Barbara Havers is sent to Ludlow to investigate the chain of events that led to Ian’s death, all the evidence points to suicide. Somehow Barbara can’t shake the feeling that she’s missing something. She decides to take a closer look at the seemingly ordinary inhabitants of Ludlow only to discover that almost everyone in town has something to hide. “Eligible” by Curtiss Sittenfeld Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help only to discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master’s degree and barely leaves her room, and Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind how to marry off her daughters. Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome newin-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. Now the fun begins. “Small Great Things” by Jodi Picoult Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse with more than 20 years experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white

public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others and themselves might be wrong. “The Running Girl” by Sara Blaedel Louise gets a call from her son, Jonas. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare: a school party has ended in terrifying chaos after a group of violent teenagers forced their way into the building in search of alcohol and valuables. Dashing to the scene, Louise discovers one of the students gravely injured while attempting to run for help. Now the girl’s mother, pushed to her emotional breaking point, will do anything to make those who hurt her daughter pay. So when someone targets the gang members with a vicious attack, the girl’s mother is the obvious suspect. Louise can’t shake the feeling that the case might not be as cut-and-dry as it first appears. Someone is lying, but who? “Shoot First” by Stuart Woods Stone Barrington is enjoying a round of golf in Key West when the game is violently interrupted and it seems as if the target of the disturbance may have been one of his playing companions. Soon, it becomes clear that this incident is only the first in a deadly scheme to push the beautiful young woman out of the way and put her company’s valuable secrets up for grabs. Stone embarks on a quest to protect his lovely new companion while searching for the mastermind behind the plot against her. He may find that her enemy is far more resourceful and dangerous than he could have anticipated. “Faith” by Jimmy Carter All his life, President Jimmy Carter has been a courageous exemplar of faith. Now he shares the lessons he learned. In this

book, his primary goal is to explore the broader meaning of faith, its far-reaching effect on our lives, and its relationship to past, present, and future events in America and around the world. As President Carter examines faith’s many meanings, he describes how to accept it, live it, how to doubt and find faith again. A serious and moving reflection from one of America’s most admired and respected citizens. “In This Moment” by Karen Kingsbury Hamilton High Principal Wendell Quinn is tired of the violence, drug abuse, teen pregnancies and low expectations at his Indianapolis school. A single father of four, Quinn is a Christian and a family man. He wants to see change in his community, so he starts a voluntary afterschool Bible Study and prayer program. He knows he is risking his job by leading the program, but the high turnout at every meeting encourages him. A year later, violence and gang activity are down, test scores are up and drug use and teen pregnancy have plummeted. The program is clearly working until one parent calls the press. Now Quinn faces a lawsuit that could ruin everything. Facing a storm of national attention and criticism, Quinn is at a crossroads he must choose whether to shut down the program or stand up for himself and his students. “The Wife” by Alafair Burke When Angela met Jason Powell at a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a shortlived fling. To her surprise, Jason had other plans, and they married the following summer. For Angela, the marriage turned out to be a chance to reboot her life. She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother’s home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past. Six years later, thanks to a bestselling book and a growing media career, Jason has become a cultural lightning rod, placing Angela near the spotlight she worked so carefully to avoid. When a college intern makes an accusation against Jason, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. Jason insists he is innocent, and Angela believes him. When Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look at both the man she married and the women she chose not to believe.

GR EEN SCENE

To NeoNi c or NoT

I first heard of neonics from Lackawanna Backyard Beekeepers president Renee Czubowicz. She explained that not only do neonics (a class of insecticide known as neonicotinoids) kill bees when they come in contact with a plant treated with the insecticide, neonics also harm bees when they come in contact with a plant that grew from a seed that was treated with the insecticide. Because of this harm to insect pollinators, which nurture the growth of 75 percent of all crops, Europe “severely restricts” (essentially bans) three types of neonics for outdoor use. To me, a U.S. ban around the corner would be a slam dunk. But recently, Turf, a trade magazine, arrived in my mailbox. In it, editor-at-large Ronnie Hall expresses concern that the EPA might eventually follow not only Europe, but also various states and municipalities in the U.S. and restrict the use of neonics. In his editorial, Hall is not concerned that farmers would lose a tool in their toolbox, and food shortages would result. Instead, Hall is concerned that “Acme” GreenChem would no longer be able to prevent “unacceptable damage to a client’s lawn, ornamentals or trees.” So Mrs. Green-Thumb’s prized roses and Mr. Green-Chem’s prized monoculture maintenance business are more important than the ecological foodweb. In fairness to Mr. Hall, he is not promoting a “To Hell with the Bees: Spray First, Ask Questions Later” campaign. In fact, he gives six qualifications to guide professionals away from using neonics or any other insecticide in an industry-recognized irresponsible manner. My concern is not whether Czubowicz or Hall might be right or wrong about every detail surrounding the bees, the trees and the industries. My concern is that there are two different approaches to life represented by Hall and Czubowicz, and I think those two approaches can get drowned out in the debate. Turf’s Ronnie Hall is concerned that Mr. Green-Chem might not be able to sell life support to Mrs. Green-Thumb for her Japanese flowering cherry, a

SChoo l N E wS c.S. reSideNT HoNored for fifTH Time

tree that is planted strictly for decoration and is ecologically misplaced in the first place. I occasionally sympathize with Mr. Hall’s libertarian ideals, and certainly, Mrs. Green-Thumb should be allowed to decorate her property with all manner of Japanese plants. But when Mrs. Green-Thumb’s Japanese arboretum impacts the ecology of Mrs. Green-Thumb’s neighborhood and beyond, there is cause for concern. If we begin following Mr. Hall’s recommendations, neonic use would decrease. But we would also have to trust an industry that stands to profit from increased use. In contrast to Mr. Hall, however, I’d like to see society change its question from “what do I need to kill so my lawn and trees can live?” to “what kind of lawn and trees will benefit all life?” Nurturing life, however, may look different and generate less revenue than subordinating it.
