New Year, New Shape

There’s no time like the present to start working out BY CHRISTOPHER CORNELL ADVANTAGE EDITOR

The holidays are over and the last bits of the turkey have been nibbled. Experts say now’s the time to start a workout routine. And you won’t be doing it alone. “People who haven’t been exercising need to know they have help and support and to not be intimidated when walking into a fitness class or the weight room,” said Lisa Burke, marketing and membership coordinator at the Greater Carbondale YMCA. “Just going to a facility is a great first step. Bring a workout buddy because it’s a lot more fun to work out and laugh with a friend. Find a fun activity/class, as it makes the time go quicker.” That sentiment was echoed by Talia Walsh, owner of Quest Studio in Jessup. “The first things I always say to folks who haven’t been exercising in a while is: “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” she said. “It really doesn’t matter to me how long it’s been, or what shape or health status they are in. Some type of exercise is always possible and you have to start somewhere.” “It’s always best to get clearance from your doctor first, and start slow, with something you enjoy, even if it’s walking,” Walsh said. “Working out with a certified coach who can guide you, and within a communi-

ty of others who can also support you, I’ve found has been most successful for my clients. I always suggest to aim for a mix of cardio, strength training and balance and flexibility, but the balance of workouts will always depend on your goals. “ “You may be nervous and that’s okay,” said Betsy Czaja, a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor with more than 23 years experience, who leads the Bootcamp Fitness classes at the Dickson City Civic Center. “One of the best ways to get started and stay motivated is to start with a group fitness class.” Czaia said her class is for all fitness levels, you go at your own pace, everything can be modified or intensified according to your fitness level. “At the Greater Carbondale YMCA, we like to say anyone can take any of our classes, just take them at your own pace,” Burke said. “We do offer easier fitness classes for anyone just starting out, from Enhanced Fitness, a class for those with arthritis which offers basic mobility, flexibility and strengthening exercises. We also offer a Silver Sneakers class where participants exercise sitting in or standing next to a chair while using stretch bands, hand-held weights and exercise balls to increase their flexibility and strength. One can attend the Walkercise class where they add cardio walking to the exercises similar to the Silver Sneakers class. and let us not forget the best fitness class for easing into exercise, Water Fitness, where the water acts as your equipment while being easy on your joints

“It’s never too late to start your journey to a healthy lifestyle.” and muscles. “At Quest Studio, our classes are open to all levels, but we also offer programs and classes for those looking for a bit more instruction,” explained Walsh. “Our Kickstart program includes a goal-setting session that incorporates not just exercise goals, but also a balanced nutrition plan, and supplementation and coaching guide to address all pillars of health.” “Start slow and build as you go,” Czaia said. “My passion has always been guiding people to with their health and fitness goals and make it a healthy lifestyle. All you need to bring to class is a water bottle, a towel, proper sneakers and your smile.”

“Have the faith that you can build up your willpower the more you make exercise a habit and part of your lifestyle, not just a 30-day New Year’s resolution,” Burke added. “It’s never too late to start your journey to a healthy lifestyle.” “There is no cookie cutter program,” Walsh said. “Set rewards for yourself for mini goals reached, like a new workout outfit, a new pair of shoes or a day trip adventure. Never forget why you started.” “Remember you got to start somewhere,” Czaia urged. “Everyone is a first-timer at some point.” For more information about area fitness classes, see page 13.

Lackawanna County residents can drop off real trees at the county recycling center, 3400 Boulevard Ave. in Scranton, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. There is no charge to recycle the trees, which are ground up with other yard waste and turned into compost, but they must be stripped of all ornaments, lights and tinsel prior to dropoff, recycling center supervisor Steve Chorba said. Many local municipalities also have procedures in place to collect trees, which should not be decorated or placed in large plastic bags prior to pick up, county recycling coordinator Barbara Giovagnoli said. Crews in Dickson City collect trees placed on the curb on four consecutive Mondays through Jan. 28. Archbald residents may place their unadorned Christmas trees on the curb virtually any time to be collected by the borough’s department of public works. “They can leave them out when they are done with them,” said DPW foreman Mike Zielinski, noting some people choose to keep

I’m Waking Up With A Stiff Neck!

FOR MEN & WOMEN

Insomnia caused by tossing and turning is an epidemic in the U.S., but worse, some of us wake up with actual pain and stiffness. What a way to start the day! A common problem for morning stiffness is neck and body position during sleep. Stomach sleeping is a definite no. In this position, the neck will be twisted excessively. The best positions will be side lying with adequate head support, or flat on the back with a proper neck-support pillow. Sometimes pillows are simply too thick and these can cause the neck to be in a forward stressed position which stretches the nerves and spinal cord. If you’re waking up with a stiff neck, then it could be how you’re sleeping or whether your pillow is right for proper neck sleeping posture. Often I discuss sleeping habits with my patients and I will recommend which type of pillow is best for maximal rest.

Demolition nearly complete for new hospital in Dickson City

BY JON O’CONNELL COURTESY OF THE TIMES TRIBUNE

Groundwork for Lackawanna County’s newest hospital is underway, even if some particulars on what will be there remain foggy. Demolition crews have leveled a former strip mall on Main Street and a building that once housed Michael Griffin’s insurance agency. A mostly blank slate of torn-up earth remains where Lehigh Valley-based Coordinated Health plans to build a new hospital. Only PA Escape Rooms stands, and owners of the entertainment venue — where paying guests work through a number of storylines, completing puzzles to move along each narrative — have said they plan to ride out their lease. PA Escape officials didn’t return requests for comment, but back in April partner Mike Heffner lamented the notice to vacate his company received and said moving the elaborate sets inside his business would cost a small fortune. The lease ends in February. Griffin moved his insurance agency across Main Street and is now down on the south side of Viewmont Drive. Coordinated plans a hospital comparable to those it has in Bethlehem and Allentown, a spokeswoman said, though

the company has not released details on the full scope of what’s planned for Dickson City — for example, whether the hospital will include an emergency room. Coordinated will hold a groundbreaking event at 2 p.m. on Jan. 24 near the construction site where health system officials will then be ready to explain more details on service lines, spokeswoman Florence Brown said last week. The physician-owned health system specializes in orthopedic care, such as joint replacement and spine surgery, but offers other service lines at its hospitals. Coordinated is building a $15 million walk-in clinic and ambulatory surgery center in Humboldt Station, Hazle Twp., and already has medical offices there and in Pittston Twp. Coordinated acquired Scranton Orthopaedic Specialists in 2017 and began buying property surrounding the existing outpatient facility. In all, the for-profit system’s property management affiliate, 334 Main LP, spent $7.4 million on the insurance agency, the PA Escape building, Scranton Orthopaedic’s building and the shopping plaza in 2017-18, according to county property records. Plans show the new hospital connected to the existing outpatient medical office building, now home to Coordinated Health Scranton Orthopedics, an injury center and walk-in clinic and other outpatient services. While the breadth of other services remains to be seen, the hospital will give a big boost to Coordinated’s forte, orthopedic surgery, bringing where doctors see patients and where they treat them under one roof. “The property currently is home to a medical office building where surgical procedures are not performed; it’s just a typical office,” Brown said. “But the hospital will allow us to provide actual surgical procedures on the same campus.”

Things looking up for ‘UFBROS’ BY DANIEL ROSLER COURTESY OF THE TIMES-TRIBUNE

The search for aliens started in their barber shop. Now, three Lackawanna County barbers are wrapping up the pilot for their new show, “UFBROS,” where, according to the group’s slogan, they “search space for the old ones, while cracking a case of the cold ones.” Shane Butler, Carbondale; Frank Froese, Peckville; and Brian “Toxic” Evans, Scranton, work together at Loyalty Barber Shop, Archbald, where the trio’s conversations about UFOs and aliens, among themselves and with customers, brought them in front of the camera. The idea to pursue a show cemented itself in the winter of 2017 when they started making their plans for a pilot, which they started filming earlier this year. “We would meet up and get drinks and talk about it anyway,” Butler said. “So, why not try to make a pilot and see if it goes anywhere?” They’ve taken their interest in “ufology,” the study of UFOs, and their cases of Corona Premiers across the state, conducting on-camera interviews in Pittsburgh, Pottsville and Kecksburg. So far, the trio has interviewed five people on camera for their project. One of these people is Maria Gillette, who, for the first time, agreed to go on camera to discuss an incident in Carbondale 44 years ago. On Nov. 9, 1974, then-teenager Robert Gillette Jr. and two friends reported to police that they saw a red, whirring ball fly over Salem Mountain and followed it to a silt pond in Carbondale. In 1999, Robert Gillette told The Times-Tribune, a Times-Shamrock newspaper, that he threw a battery-powered, sealed-beam lantern into the water to scare his sister, Maria. However, while cutting hair and discussing the project, Butler brought up both the incident and the late Gillette. Little did he know, Gillette’s nephew was in the shop

getting his hair cut. He put the UFBROS in touch with Maria, who still lives in Carbondale and agreed to an interview about the incident. “She took it as a sign to interview with us, to put it to rest for her brother, since (Robert) passed away,” Butler said. In the “UFBROS” trailer on YouTube, Maria Gillette said her brother was told there would be more than a UFO in the pond if he or the other teens opened their mouths about what happened back in 1974. With popular television shows like the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” finishing its 13th season, the phenomena of UFOs and extraterrestrial life continues to spark the imaginations of people everywhere. However, despite millions of claims, confirming the legitimacy of UFO sightings is a nearly impossible task, according to Peter Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center. “There are millions and millions of UFO sightings,” he said. “It’s almost impossible to answer because it presupposes that we can positively, absolutely identify or determine whether a report is legitimate or not.” People interested in the work being done by the UFBROS can find them at UFBROS.tv on Instagram and UF BROS on Facebook. They anticipate their 15- to 20-minute pilot, filmed by Stephen Reuther of Reuther Productions, will premiere on YouTube and Facebook in early 2019. As for the future, Butler said he would like to combine education with entertainment. And, collectively, the UFBROS hope they can continue researching, filming and making future episodes to learn along with viewers. Most importantly, their mission is to learn about UFOs, keep an open mind, never take themselves too seriously and encourage people to study the skies. “Nobody looks up any more,” Froese said. “We’ve got to get people looking up again.”

Meals on Wheels chef crafts flavorful food for people in need

C

BY GIA MAZUR Staff Writer

hef John Williams has created menus for exclusive resorts, upscale diners and even some celebrities. His current clientele is the most rewarding, however. Williams is executive chef for Meals on Wheels of NEPA, including its new catering service, the Space at Olive. When the team isn’t crafting meals for elderly people and those with disabilities in the region, Williams and the rest of the kitchen staff work on services for the nonprofit’s event space. Inside the organization’s Wyoming Avenue building in downtown Scranton, the space was renovated to host other local organizations’ events at low cost, with certain events benefitting Meals on Wheels. The space can be used for parties or weddings, too, and also served as a venue for the 2018 Scranton Fringe Festival. The additional space calls for a host of new recipes from Williams, including shrimp and artichoke tartlets. The appetizer, which ear ned Meals on Wheels of NEPA a grocery gift card through Local Flavor Gives Back, is an easy recipe with simple assembly, Williams said. Always one for experimenting with different flavors and combinations, Williams created the dish as a great way to blend the flavors of shrimp and artichokes into a crunchy wonton. “I’m constantly trying to think of things that are out-ofthe-box. I never want anyone to feel bored while they’re eat-

While people can serve them as an appetizer, the light and tasty tartlets easily could be a meal, too. Aside from meals for the event space, Williams — who also worked as a chef in hospitals and assisted-living facilities — crafts hearty and healthy dishes with all the fixings for all Meals on Wheels recipients, many of whom have dietary restrictions. All of Williams’ meals are low-sodium, and he must keep in mind the specific guidelines for each client when cooking up a dish. That doesn’t stop his creativity, though, as sample menus include paprika chicken with egg noodles, sugar snap peas and applesauce, and sweet and sour pork with brown rice, carrots and pineapple tidbits. “We are incredibly lucky and happy to have someone as experienced and caring as

Inside the township boardroom Monday night, Tom and Sue Wicks sat together in the front row before a supervisors meeting when she turned to him and asked a question. “So, where did you used to sit?” she asked. Her husband pointed to a familiar spot at the front of the room, to a chair next to the supervisors’ seats. Monday night’s meeting marked the first time in close to two decades that Tom Wicks wasn’t in attendance as the township’s secretary and treasurer. Instead, township officials honored him with a plaque recognizing 18 years of service. “I enjoyed talking to the people and being a servant to the people who walked through the door,” Wicks, 75, said of his time at Scott Twp. Wicks started initially with the township as zoning officer before becoming secretary and treasurer in 2002. His last day in that role was Dec. 31. He had a policy of being a gentleman with everyone who stopped in, regardless of how he felt personally about what brought them into the office, Tom Wicks said. It was far from his first experience in the public sphere. He held various municipal posts in Glenburn Twp., where he and Sue live, dating back to the 1960s, Sue said. It was those experiences that made him such a valuable candidate for the post in Scott Twp. then, said chairman supervisor Michael Giannetta. As secretary and treasurer, he deftly juggled myriad responsibilities, including preparing budgets, managing payrolls and being the point of contact for state

agencies as well as being the face of the office for the public, Giannetta said. “He kept track of all of it like it was his own money,” Giannetta said. “He knew the township’s finances inside and out.” Other township officials and residents alike praised Wicks and his job performance at Monday night’s meeting while noting he’d be missed. Supervisor Steven Russell thanked Wicks for being so welcoming and helpful when Russell first won election to public office as a township auditor. Resident Rose Knick praised Wicks as being one of the township’s kindest and most courteous employees. He was always forthcoming with public information and records upon request, she said. As for Wicks, he isn’t entirely leaving public life. He remains active in Glenburn Twp. as zoning officer and chairman of the planning commission. He will miss his role in Scott Twp., he said. “I’ll miss coming in every day and doing my job, doing whatever is needed,” Wicks said. “I never really had a day I didn’t wish I had the job. Every day was a good day, as far as I was concerned.” Township officials will now turn to finding a new secretary and treasurer. Supervisors voted to make township administrator Carl Ferraro assistant secretary and treasurer until a replacement is hired. Anyone interested in the job can pick up an application at the township office, 1038 Montdale Road, and submit it with a resume, Giannetta said. Applicants need not be township residents.
