Remembering Main Street in its heyday BY ED E ROGERS FOR THE VALLEY ADVANTAGE

I drove up Main Street in Carbondale on a recent Saturday night. It was like a ghost town; nothing like I remember as a child growing up in the Pioneer City. In the late ’30s and early ’40s, Saturday night downtown was a big thing. Whole families, most dressed to “beat the band,” congregated in the blocks between Salem and Seventh Avenues. Woolworth’s Corner at Salem and Main was the real hot spot. In those days there were three five and dime stores in a row. Woolworth’s and Newberry’s both had entrances on Main and Salem; Kresge’s was tucked in between the two. (When Kresge’s closed, the space was occupied by a JCPenney store.) As I recall it, Newberry’s was sort of the flag ship. It was the largest and had a soda fountain and big candy department. At Easter time it even sold baby chicks which were kept in a wire pen in the basement. Across the main drag, next to Mills’ hardware, was Bert Collins’ cigar store, home of the weekly cash pool. The drawing to select the winner took place on Saturday night and posting of the winner’s name in the window always drew a crowd. Another thing that drew attention was posting of winners of the weekly suit club drawings in Rommelmeyer’s, Lewsley’s and McCann’s clothing stores. The Rogers family frequently went to town on Saturday nights. Dad liked to dress up in his three piece suit with a gold chain stretched between the two pockets of his vest. On one end was his pocket watch and on the other a small basketball. He was easily recognizable, even in a crowd, because he was one of the last two Carbondale men to wear a classic black derby on his head during the colder nights of the year. After Straw Hat Day, May 15, he switched to a boaterstyle straw hat. Mom and Dad had my younger brother, Dean, and me in tow as they made their way through the throngs around

Woolworth’s. Sometimes it was necessary to step off the curb and into the street to head toward city hall. Dean had a habit of breaking loose, a problem that was solved by fitting him with a harness and leash. In those days, the downtown had just about everything a family needed. There were no super markets as we know them today; groceries generally came from neighborhood stores of which there were many. Starting in 1927, the Home Cut Glass and China Co. was the place to go for household items. Mom got her “good china” there, piece by piece. Thanks to the pioneering electronics wizardry of Leon Helk, that store operated Carbondale’s first radio station, WNBW, in the late 1920’s. Please see Main Street, Page 5

The “Cut Glass” originally was at the rear of Salem Avenue near Church Street. Later, the owners, George F. Schiessler and Maude E. Stephens, moved to Main Street next to the M&M Bank. Regrettably, the store and its r a d i o s t at i o n d i d n’ t s u r v ive t h e Depression. The Boston Fish Market on Salem Avenue near the river had fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables; Allie Watters’ deli on Church Street featured wonderful salads, and there were a couple of convenience stores such as Joe Modad’s and Dante Bigoni’s. Barbour’s Bakery on Salem Avenue and Atno’s on Church Street featured some of the best baked goods. My favorite at Barbour’s, which is still there, were the big butter buns. Among other things, Atno’s made Cor nish saffron bread with its pungent aroma and yellow hue. For the women there was the Globe Fashion Shop and a number of smaller apparel stores. Shoes were available at Kinney’s, Treadeasy, J.S. Raub’s and Endicott Johnson. If you needed your watch repaired or a very special gift

there were Birkett’s, Ely’s and Jonas Stone’s jewelry stores. There are three downtown places I can’t forget: • T h e C a r aw a n a , w h e r e J o h n Demoris lined them up on his arm and made the best Texas wieners you could find anywhere. • Tralles’, where Frank Tralles made the most delicious homemade ice cream and candy. • The Arcade, home of the best Boston cream pie we ever tasted. The Rogers family returned home most Saturday nights without tasting any of the above. If we were lucky, we shared a bag of candy from Newberry’s. In those days you got a lot for a dime. Ed E. Rogers is a native of Carbondale and retired after a newspaper career that began in 1944 as sports editor of the former Carbondale News Leader. He subsequently worked for The Scranton Tribune and then spent 64 years as a reporter and editor at The Scranton Times. He frequently shares memo ries of his home town wi th Advantage readers.

There IS a correlation between muscle and/or joint pain on a rainy or humid day due to the fact that our bodies are 80% water. When the barometric and atmospheric pressure drops, it changes the water pressure within the muscles and joints. So if there is less joint space due to arthritic conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, arthritis or any trauma areas, you may hurt or ache a little more on damp, rainy or cold days. Some people are affected more than others. This is why certain people move to Arizona where it is dry and minimal barometric changes in the atmosphere. Here are some things you can do to get through a rainy day if you are hurting: Use ice or heat while you are lying on your back with your knees bent. Walking is good if you are able in order to loosen up muscles. Light stretching to improve muscle circulation and movement. Schedule an appointment for a treatment… We will make your back feel better.

Kiss and tell

Cherry cookies a lip-smacking good treat BY GIA MAZUR Staff Writer

M

elissa Carestia is creative by nature, and every project — whether in the studio or kitchen — is a work of art. The Scranton resident has a knack for baking, a trait passed down from her grandmother, the late Dorothy Langbein, and she makes everything from elaborate cupcakes to cookies with a theme. Her recipe for Chocolate Cherry Cookies is no exception, as the red-hued treat goes along with Carestia’s role as a board member of Scranton Fringe Festival. “It’s always a production. I went to art school,” she said, laughing, inside the home she shares with her boyfriend, Tucker Hottes. “I have tons of cookie recipes, but Fringe’s whole branding is red, and Chocolate Cherry Cookies made perfect sense.” The recipe earned the performing and visual arts festival a $50 grocery gift card through Local Flavor Gives Back. Carestia noted the recipe — which is similar to Peanut Butter Blossoms, peanut butter-flavored cookies with a milk chocolate Hershey’s Kiss in the center — is very straightforward. Bakers should make sure to chill the dough before working with it to ensure it’s not too sticky. Carestia typically chills hers overnight, but she recommends letting the dough sit in the refrigerator for at least one hour. She also added that bakers should not make the balls too big; 1-inch wide typically is the perfect size.

SpeCial edition

Gives Back Local Flavor Gives Back unites Northeast Pennsylvania residents through food and generosity. Each week, we feature recipes from people or groups who give their gift card winnings to charity.

Be part of the Fringe applications for this year’s Scranton fringe festival — which runs from friday, Sept. 27, through Sunday, Oct. 6 — are open until Sunday, april 7. to apply or for more information, visit scrantonfringe.org/apply.

Carestia noted the festival expanded to year-round programming a few years ago, and it keeps in line with the nonprofit’s mission to remain communityminded with an eye on global arts. Scranton Fringe added the regional story slams to its umbrella and also hosts events throughout the year, including a comedy show that took place last month. On Friday, May 3, Scranton Fringe will be part of Scranton Area Community Foundation’s NEPA Match Day. For every dollar Scranton Fringe raises, the foundation will match the gifts, up to $1,000. Fringe’s mission is to provide a place for artists to perform new material or take a risk with a show or exhibit without a ton of overhead costs. The festival also gives the Scranton area a chance to experience unique music, theater, dance, film and visual arts for an affordable ticket price while bringing revenue to local venues and businesses. It’s good for Fringe and good for the community, Carestia said, which is just as sweet as a Chocolate Cherry Cookie. “We love to be a part of the community here in Scranton and in the Fringe world,” Carestia said. “We’re just doing what we think will benefit this area and its artists and audiences the most, and other festivals recognize us and see what we’re doing. That’s a pretty cool feeling.”

Carestia’s Chocolate Cherry Cookies mixed savory dark chocolate with sweet, tart cher ry. Just moist enough, the cookie still had a nice crunch along the bottom. While Local Flavor has tasted the peanut butter-andmilk-chocolate variety, the dark chocolate and cherry kind made for a tasty twist on the classic cookie. This year’s Scranton Fringe Festival, the fifth, takes place from Friday, Sept. 27, through Sunday, Oct. 6. Applications for this year’s performances are open until Sunday, April 7. Visual Fringe applications Contact the writer: gmazur@ will be accepted within the timesshamrock.com; 570-3489127; @gmazurtt on twitter next few months.
