the Pittston Pool and each day we had to be home by 5:00 p.m. for supper. We were tired and hungry from swimming all afternoon and even more tired, hungry and hot from walking up Church Street, but in the days before air conditioning and eating out, we could smell dinner cooking at almost every house we passed. The food must have smelled so good because thinking about it still makes me smile. I have to point out that the Lussi’s and Bartoli’s Judy refers to were neighborhood bars, both of which served excellent food. Bartoli’s was the site of many events such as bridal showers and baptismal breakfasts, and at one time Lussi’s served a complete lobster tail dinner for $1.99. Lussi’s was also the place where I had my first beer, a glass of Schaefer for ten cents. Interesting that Judy should bring up the Pittston Pool because just a couple of weeks

ago I returned home from working out at the gym and got out of my car with a towel over my shoulder. When I did, my neighbor yelled, “You look like you’re coming home from the Pittston Pool.” I knew what he meant. In the years following the opening of the pool in 1964, kids walking through town with towels over their shoulders were a common site. I’d have to say the opening of the Pittston Pool was one of the most significant events of my teenage years. For one thing, it forced me to learn to swim. My dad was an excellent swimmer. He loved telling the story of how he learned. When he was perhaps five years old, maybe a bit less, his older brothers, upset at having to babysit him when they wanted to go swimming, took him down to the Lehigh River and threw him in. “If it looked like I was going to drown,” he’d say, “they would fish me out, let me cry for a few minutes, and then

throw me in again. Eventually I started to doggie paddle around and then they knew they didn’t have to worry about me any more.” Dad would take us to Harvey’s Lake, and try to teach us to swim by supporting us with his palm placed on our stomach as we paddled and kicked. Usually, when he’d remove his hand, we’d sink like a rock and get mad at him. We thought he should support us like that all day long. But knowing Pittston was going to build a pool, I went to Harvey’s Lake the previous summer and basically taught myself to swim. Up to then, I had been missing the most important ingredient in the learning process: motivation. I wasn’t about to show up at the new pool unable to swim. Throughout high school the Pittston Pool was our second home. We’d hang out there thinking we were in a Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello beach movie. The pool was

where I first heard the famous Rolling Stones song “(I can’t get no) Satisfaction” and the song “I Get Around” by The Beach Boys. One of the life guards at the pool was a guy named Bobby Ochreiter and I remember my friend Tony Alu (who grew up to be a performer, perhaps best known as a singer with the band The Cadillacs) singing the name “Bobby Ochreiter” to the tune of The Beatles’ song “Paperback Writer.” If you know Alu, ask him to do it. I’m sure he still can. Looking back, these memories seem so simple. That’s because they are. Don’t believe all the hype about “The Sixties.” Around here at least, it was a simple time when kids walked along city streets in bathing suits on their way to a day of swimming, and, as Judy Bell points out, walked home later to a hot meal usually eaten around the kitchen table with Mom, Dad, and the whole family. How lucky we were.

During that span I cannot tell you how many times someone has told me an interesting story and then quickly added: and I don’t want to see that in your column. My response has always been the same: hey, I have to write 52 of those things a year, anything is fair game. I never really meant that and always honored requests to keep something out of print.

It’s like one smooth pinching motion.” Kocylowski, a lifetime member of Sacred Heart, said you have to make sure the pierogi is completely sealed. “If there’s a hole in the dough, it will come apart when they’re boiling,” she said. “We have to make sure they’re closed real good.” After a tray is full, it is taken into the kitchen where each pierogi is submerged in a vat of boil-

ing water. (Fourteen massive cauldrons of boiling water make for a very hot kitchen, by the way.) “When they float, they’re done,” Lacomis said. They’re then put in a cold water bath: a pretty complex system with a pump and many large blocks of ice.

Frank Skrzysowski, of Dupont, was coring cabbages … with a drill. “You take out the core and it’s easier for the women to make piggies. The cabbage just falls

off.” Lacomis got emotional when he looked across the hall and saw all the volunteers hard at work. He said there were over 100 volunteers, including more than 40 volunteer “pinchers.” “We’re a family here,” he said. “Sacred Heart Church is a family. I get a little emotional when all these people show up to help out. It’s just amazing.”

Tigue, who shares chairmanship of the expansion project with Pat Solano, said the city will also apply for state gaming funds in December. Quinn applauded U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, state Rep. Mike Carroll and state Sen. John Yudichak for helping obtain public funds. “This addition will be a Godsend,” Quinn said. “Any help from Harrisburg or Washington is greatly appreciated.”

The next chapter is nearly written. With the help of a $761,000 federal loan, the Pittston Memorial Library will break ground in September on a $1.5 million expansion. U.S. Senator Bob Casey, announced Tuesday that the library will receive a 40-year loan of $761,900 and $105,600 grant. Barbara Quinn, president of library’s board of trustees, said the money couldn’t have come at a better time. “We’re bursting at the seams,” she said. “We have no more room.” Quinn said the 5,000-squarefoot addition will contain a stateof-the-art conference room with Smartboards and WiFi capability, a larger children’s section, an arts and crafts room, teen space, a senior citizen area, a kitchenette, a vestibule, a coat room and additional rest rooms. A playground is planned for behind the building adjacent to the new children’s wing. “We’ll finally be able to break ground,” Quinn said. “We’re really going to push fundraising once we have the ground breaking.” Quinn said the exact date of the ceremony hasn’t been determined yet. The $105,000 grant will be used to renovate the current library. Casey applauded the expansion. “Pittston’s library expansion will greatly benefit the community, better enabling our children to enjoy the many educational opportunities the library has to offer and creating a new community meeting space,” Casey said. The loan and grant were made available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s rural development program, Casey said. The expansion is part of the library’s Cosgrove Capital Campaign. John P. Cosgrove, a Pittston

native, spent 70 years working in the media in Washington, D.C. He donated his personal library, including thousands of volumes, correspondence and memorabilia, to his hometown library three years ago. When the Pittston library suggested it expand in part to display the collection, Cosgrove donated $50,000 to get the project started. The collection, along with the donation, prompted the library trustees to name the proposed project the Cosgrove Annex and to undertake a major capital campaign to pay for it. Former state Rep. Tom Tigue, honorary co-chairman of the project, said the funding “is a huge step for the library.” He said three major fund raisers are planned in the next several months. • An entertainment/sports memorabilia raffle will be set up at the Tomato Festival. • “A Taste of Greater Pittston” will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sept. 23 on the grounds of the Pittston Memorial Library, 47 Broad St., Pittston. The event will feature tastings of homemade wine and the “Greater Pittston’s Choice” award will be presented to the winemakers voted as presenting the best red and the best white wines.

Crumbling bridge is a concern By JOE HEALEY

A large section of a pillar holding up the Lehigh Valley/Coxton Railroad Bridge in Duryea is missing and the structure is in danger of collapsing, said Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena.

The deteriorating railroad bridge spanning the Susquehanna River in Exeter Township is a danger and needs to be demolished, a county official said. Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena said if the bridge collapses, it could create a dam on the river and “All I know cause major is this is a flooding.

The Lehigh Valley/Coxton Railroad Bridge is owned by Leo Glodzik, of LAG Towing in Duryea. Glodzik bought the structure for $500 in 2008 from the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority. He could not be reached for comment, but told The Times Leader he is negotiating a deal to sell the bridge to a scrap company. “I’ve had engineers inspect the bridge; it’s not going to fall,” Glodzik said. “That bridge will be there a hundred years from now.” Brozena said he headed at least two bridge demolition projects and such an undertaking would cost at least $500,000. A causeway would have to be constructed across half of the river and half the bridge could safely be demolished. Same for the other side. “I’m not sure he’d get that

much for the scrape metal and stone,” Brozena said, adding that one avenue toward demolition of the bridge would be to have the municipality declare the structure condemned. “In the back of my mind, it’s like we’re looking at a bad house,” Brozena said. “It may fall to Exeter Township to condemn it. Right now, it’s for the lawyers to figure out.” Brozena and Andy Reilly, the county’s community development director and acting director of the Redevelopment Authority, said some of the $15.7 million in flood relief the county received through the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief Program could be used to remove the bridge, according to a story in The Times Leader. The two are discussing that possibility with Luzerne County Engineer Joe Gibbons. Brozena said two of the pillars supporting the span have severely eroded. “All I know is this is a potential hazard that we don’t need to have,” he said.

Grand marshal honor cap to 42-year career

Longtime Pittston employee Jerry Mullarkey has seen good, bad times in the downtown By JOE HEALEY

jhealey@psdispatch.com

Jerry Mullarkey hasn’t seen a Tomato Festival Parade in years. With good excuse, though. “Every year as the parade is going on, I’m usually handling the awards ceremony for the race,” he said. “I’m always doing race things.” Mullarkey, who served as a co-director the festival’s 5K Race for the past 14 years and who recently retired after working 42 years in City Hall, was named grand marshal of the 2012 parade. “It’s an absolute honor to join the ranks of all the great grand

marshals before me,” he said. Mullarkey’s career in Pittston City’s Redevelopment Authority came to an end on July 31 when he retired. He served in the administration of five Pittston City mayors: Robert Loftus, Tom Walsh, Michael Lombardo and Jason Klush. “I saw my role as a caretaker of various federal, state and other types of grants the city received,” Mullarkey said. When Mullarkey started in Pittston City in 1970, Kennedy Boulevard was just completed and the two-way Main Street was transformed into a oneway roadway. “At the time, the downtown was bustling and businesses

were prospering,” he said. But with newer highways and the shopping malls, many businesses evacuated and the downtown became distressed. “A short time ago, the town wasn’t the most attractive place,” he said. All that has changed with a See MARSHAL, Page 21

Over 30 current or former residents of Duryea filed a lawsuit against Duryea Borough and two authorities in the United States Middle District Court of Pennsylvania over the borough’s response to the September, 2011 flood which flooded over 300 homes in the borough. The plaintiffs are represented by Atty. Jack M. Bernard of Philadelphia. Duryea officials named as defendants are Mayor Keith Moss, Police Chief Nick Lohman, Borough Manager Lois Morreale, Council Chairwoman Audrey Marcinko and Councilman in charge of civil defense Frank Groblewski. The Lower Lackawanna Valley Sanitary Sewer Authority

and the Duryea Borough Sewer Authority are also named as defendants. The suit alleges, among other points, that borough officials “willfully, wantonly and recklessly abandoned their duties to Duryea residents, ignoring an emergency action plan that required 5,000 sandbags in place.” Borough officials were reluctant to talk. “I have no comment,” Mayor Moss said on Friday, “because we haven’t been served. As soon as we get served, our lawyer will come out with a statement. After that, I’d be happy to talk about it.” Council President Audrey Marcinko said much the same. “I can’t comment on the advice of our attorney. All I can say is the truth will come out. I wish I

Stan Kapish, the organizer of the group of plaintiffs, said the suit is not about money. “There’s not a fat number thrown out. When we met with the lawyer, he asked everybody for a financial loss statement. Everybody is different. It’s not so much financial. It’s about offering legal advice and about the wrong people being involved in local government. People should be more conscientious in the voting booth. Instead of voting for their friends and family, they should put the right people in office.” could tell you.” Stan Kapish, the organizer of the group of plaintiffs, said the suit is not about money. “There’s not a fat number thrown out.

It’s about offering legal advice and about the wrong people being involved in local govern-

ment. People should be more conscientious in the voting booth. Instead of voting for their friends and family, they should put the right people in office.” Kapish served one four-year term on Duryea Borough Council, but was defeated by six votes in 2009. Asked if that colored his decision to organize the suit, he said, “Hell, no. That was a long time ago. I’ll put my four years

up against anybody.” Barbara Edwards, a resident of Chittenden Street whose home was flooded with seven feet of water, said she wasn’t asked directly to join the suit, but knew about it. “You know, stuff happens. I don’t think sandbags would have helped that much. The water would have come from somewhere else. ” That doesn’t mean she exonerates the borough. Her biggest complaint was that the fire truck announcing a mandatory evacuation didn’t go down her street. “We could hear them up on Main Street but with three pumps running, we couldn’t hear what they were See DURYEA, Page 21

Sam Chiarelli’s ‘Hummingbird Summer’ Pittston City songwriter may pen tune on hummingbird adventure By ED ACKERMAN

cleaned her some more and off she flew.” Chiarelli offered the hummingbird sugar water while holding it. “I actually got to see her extend her tongue and drink,” he said. Chiarelli, 26, recently graduated from Wilkes University with a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing. A Seton Catholic grad, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wilkes in English Literature. The band SilenTreatment has released two CDs of original work and was selected by rock legends KISS to open for them at a 2010 concert at Montage. Chiarelli said the group is doing a lot of studio projects and is working on a CD called “Medieval Knievel.” Chiarelli has a strong interest in paleontology and natural history in general and wrote his master’s thesis on dinosaurs. He hopes to turn that thesis into a non-fiction book. He has written several essays on dinosaurs and is only half kidding about penning the “Hummingbird Summer” song.

Sam Chiarelli freed this hummingbird from a spider's web in the garage of a Cornelia Street neighbor.

Don’t be surprised if Sam Chiarelli writes a song titled “Hummingbird Summer.” That’s what he’s calling the summer of 2012. Chiarelli, a songwriter, musician and singer with the band SilenTreatment, has spent several hours this summer mesmerized by the hummingbirds in the Cornelia Street neighborhood of his parents’ (Sam and Mary Chiarelli) home. In late June, from the vantage point of Our Lady of the Eucharist church, he snapped several photos of hummingbirds on the porch of the Porcuzek residence. “I look everything up,” he said, as he spouted hummingbird information. “The ones I’ve seen are females because males have ruby, red throats.” He also learned that, in addition to nectar and the sugary water common to hummingbird feeders, hummingbirds consume small spiders. So, when he was alerted that a hummingbird was trapped in the garage of the Chiarelli Tighe family next door to his parents’ home, he wasn’t surprised to find a terrified hummingbird trapped helplessly in a spider’s web. “It broke my heart watching her struggle to get free,” Chiarelli said. So he went to its rescue. Chiarelli took the hummingbird from the web and carefully removed the sticky material from its wings. “It tried to fly off before I was finished, and it tumbled right to the ground,” he said. “I thought she might have had a stroke because I read that they can get really stressed, but I picked her up,

OUR OPINION It’s not your father’s library In the age of instant research with computers, digital books on e-readers like Nook and Kindle, smart phones and smart pads, and newspapers and magazines on line, what of libraries? Before we conclude all this technology will make libraries obsolete, let’s recall when VCRs were going to make movie-going obsolete. Movie theaters are still around for now and will be in the future. Libraries are still around, too, and at least locally it looks like they will be around in the future, too. The Pittston Library is poised not just to survive, but thrive. The Library secured a $761,000 federal loan and a $105,600 grant and soon will break ground in September on a $1.5 million expansion. As the story on page 5 today explains, the library is going to build a 5,000-square-foot addition with a state-of-the-art conference room with Smartboards and WiFi capability, a larger children’s section, an arts and crafts room, teen space and a senior citizen area. The Pittston library is entering the new age of libraries, where libraries are not just places to borrow books, but community centers. As such libraries are resources for immigrants and other newcomers to an area. It is often the first place they go to network for housing and jobs. Remember though computers seem to be everywhere, not every household has computers. One of the ideas the Pittston library has is for an intergenerational program that will bring together kids and senior citizens to learn from each other. Our other local libraries, in West Pittston and Wyoming, are also adding programs and technology to make them viable in 2012 and beyond. But what of the $700,000 plus loan the library must pay back. While that may seem like a burden, that’s where we all come in. The library will use a series of fund raisers and its usual annual capital campaign to make loan payments, so be generous to the library. Start at the Tomato Festival, the library will have a fund raiser there. In a sense the borrowed money is money the library would have had to raise over 40 years anyway. With the money up front, the future is now.

YOUR OPINION Calls new tax proposal fair and sensible As many taxpayers may have heard or read about, there is a movement afoot in Pennsylvania to eliminate the ultra-regressive school property tax in favor of an increase in the personal income tax and sales tax. The bill being strongly considered, House Bill 1776/SenateBill 1400 (Property Tax Independence Act), was recently voted down in committee, but has a strong chance of reappearing in the near future and possibly making it to the floor of the House for a full up-down vote. In its current form, this bill would eliminate the local school property tax (which currently funds about 57% of education) in favor of increasing the personal income tax from 3 to 4% as well as raising the state sales tax from 6 to 7%. It would also expand the goods and services that sales tax is collected on. How would this affect the average property owner? Since property owners pay a large disproportionate share to fund education, the vast majority would end up with a lot more money in their pocket to spend as they see fit and help stimulate the economy, and paying for the cost of education would be more evenly spread out among all the commonwealth’s citizens. First time homebuyers would not be burdened with exorbitant escrow pay-

ments and senior citizens would not be in constant fear of losing their homes to foreclosure because they can’t afford spiraling school tax bills. Most importantly, schools across the state would be funded by a single source (the state itself) and therefore all schools would be guaranteed an equal share of funding based on student population. No more disparities based on stagnant tax bases or rural areas. Also, this new method of funding is fairer to everyone because it’s based directly on a person’s ability to pay based on their family income, unlike the property tax. There is a website you can visit to calculate exactly how much you would save under this new plan - http://www.ptcc.us/ pfpfcalc.htm. I strongly encourage all property owners to visit it, do the math, and then get busy contacting your legislators, urging them to enact this fair and sensible law. The future of our state’s education system and economic well-being is hanging in the balance. David L. Chaump Duryea

Calls for residents to learn about proposed compressor The Luzerne County Zoning Hearing Board will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 7 in the Luzerne County Courthouse jury room on the second floor. On the agenda is the permit application of UGI Energy Services for a utility special exception to construct a gas compressor station in West Wyoming. I would also urge residents of Exeter, Wyoming, West Wyoming to attend their borough meetings the day before, Monday Aug. 6, to ask their council members for more information and

ask what the council members are doing about the proposed compressor which could jeopardize residents’ health. My concern as a member the Luzerne County Clean Air is not just about the exception for the land use, it’s about the possible adverse health affects from compressor emissions.

The way we were

Call and I defy you to rediscover that little gem in this age of iPhones, caller ID and general surveillance. It’s just no fun anymore. If I called my kids and asked them if they had Prince Albert in a can, they’d fire up their laptops and Google Prince Albert. In a can. Sad. I miss the effort it took Maria Jiunta (at the to navigate making the time) sporting bangs case for appropriation of stylishly cut by her mom a coveted item. And that technique made the “getting” all that much sweeter. Life’s little pleasures were not handed to me freely. For instance, when I wanted my ears pierced, my mother told me I had to wait until I turned12. When I turned 12, she told me I could not get my ears pierced unless I found somewhere that accepted S & H Green Stamps as payment. She totally thought she had me. But guess what…J.C. Penney’s accepted my Green Stamps for pierced ears! She didn’t get her blender, but I got holes in my lobes! It’s just that there’s something to be said for really wanting a treat and waiting for it. No one knows what it’s like to want anymore. Unless you’re me and it’s a tummy tuck. We forget how gloriously unadorned life used to be, and how breathtaking that felt. Pre iPad, prelaptop, pre-X-Box, pre-spoiled rotten children. My daughter, Madeline, dismisses her own generation so succinctly by notating that all the things they consider difficult in this lifetime are “First World Problems”. She’s right. Aside from losing your home, your job or your health…the rest is indeed pretty much First World Problems. We need to gain perspective. Get off the phone and pick up a jump rope. Instead of touching base through FaceBook, touch an actual base. And for God’s sake…let’s bring back S & H Green Stamps! I wonder if my plastic surgeon will accept Green Stamps for an abdominoplasty? I’m going to ask him! In the meantime, let’s all just take a breath…and, well…breathe. Crack open an egg of Silly Putty, lay it over a comic and stretch. Color outside the lines. Hopscotch is free. A game of Jacks is therapeutic. And, I can totally cut your bangs when you’re ready. Call me. But not on your cell phone. Maria Heck’s column appears on alternating weeks in this space every week. And you don’t need Green Stamps to read it.

One of Corey’s favorites Thank you all for taking the week off from reading Nutrition Notes column. As I was thinking about what to write this week, I couldn’t resist writing about one of our families’ most favorite foods, basil. Our son Corey especially enjoyed pesto, which is made from basil. In the coldest wintery days we would enjoy pesto over angel hair pasta and just think back to those warm summery days. A bit of history on the herb. Basil has been grown since ancient times. In 1600s an English herbalist prescribed it for improved health and “cureth of infirmities and taketh away of sorrow…” Then it made its way to American shores in the mid-17th century where it was used mainly as a medicine. Today it is mainstay of the kitchen herb garden and is often called the “king” of herbs. Basil originally came from India, but found its way into popular Italian tomato and Thai recipes. This relative of mint is often used in tomato sauces, pesto sauce, and as a flavoring agent for oils, vinegars and teas. It also can be sprinkled over salads and sliced tomatoes. Tear, don’t chop the leaves for the best flavor. To make oil for salads, pound the fresh leaves and mix with a good salad or vegetable oil. Fresh basil leaves should be washed with cold water just prior to adding to a dish. Add it during the last 30 minutes of cooking for best flavor. A favorite Mediterranean dish made with basil is pesto. Pesto is a green sauce that is added to soups, vegetables, fish, and pasta. Here is a favorite recipe of our family. If you wish, you can eliminate the walnuts and substitute pine nuts or not add them at all. Basil-Walnut Pesto Recipe

4 peeled, medium-sized garlic cloves 1/2 cup walnut pieces 1 cup Parmesan cheese 4 cups packed basil leaves 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil In a food processor, briefly mince garlic cloves. Add 1/2 cup walnuts and process until thoroughly ground. Add 1 cup Parmesan cheese and briefly mix with garlic and walnuts. Add 2 cups basil leaves and half of the 1/3 cup olive oil. Pulse the food processor until leaves are ground. Add the remaining 2 cups of basil leaves and remaining olive oil. Again, pulse leaves until ground. Use immediately by tossing with your favorite pasta. This makes enough for two, 1 pound servings of pasta. Use half and freeze the remaining in a pint container. Add a bit of olive oil over the top to preserve the flavor. To use frozen pesto, thaw in refrigerator or defrost in microwave. Don’t allow pesto to overheat in microwave, as it should not cook. Once pesto is warm, spoon onto hot pasta, mix thoroughly and serve. Basil can be somewhat of a tricky herb to store. Wrap in a lightly damp towel and refrigerate. Do not wash prior to refrigeration. It can also be frozen in plastic air-lock bags. Do not thaw before use just add to sauces and soups frozen. Some folks have shared that they freeze puréed basil in ice cube trays and then pack in freezer bags. Enjoy… as our family will continue to enjoy pesto as a family remembrance for years to come.

Maybe it’s the fact I’m rolling down the highway towards “Exit 50”, but I‘ve become so nostalgic about my childhood lately. I’ve been watching an odd reality show which follows a colony of inhabitants from a branch of Mennonites called Hutterites. I can’t look away! But mostly, I’m intrigued at the simplicity of their lives. They are content with so little. And, aside from the women being chained to the kitchen stove, basting everything in lard, I admire them. It made me think about life before every eightyear-old in America had a cell phone. Simple times, simple pleasure, simple contentment. What the hell happened? I miss it all. I really do. I miss effortless exercise. Hopscotch was enough for me. The only fitness guru we knew was Jack Lalanne, who I’m certain never heard of knitting his ribs or talking to his torso. I daresay that an hour of hopscotch can burn more calories than an hour of spin class any day of the week. And when I added Jacks or Pick-Up-Sticks to the mix, I had balance! Balance eludes me these days, on every level, by the way. I walk into a door or a wall at least three times a week. I’m just saying, there was a hell of a lot less childhood obesity in my childhood because everyone stayed outside and actually moved their limbs. We jumped rope, roller-skated, swam and ran away from my brother because he was trying to stick my finger in a light socket. (Worst. Babysitter. Ever.) I miss the simplistic beauty regimens! My mother would line us all up against the paneled TV room wall, slap some masking tape on our foreheads and use that as her (mis) guideline for snipping our group bangs. No one paid for haircuts in the ‘70s! Now girls are highlighting their hair at the ripe old age of 12. I did highlight mine once when I was 9. I thought a jar of Smucker’s grape jelly would suffice as my own low-cost version of Dippity Do…and…well…let’s just say the mosquitoes were on me like white on rice that summer evening. And aside from Kool Aid, it’s the single most effective hair color agent one can find in their own pantry. No charge for that beauty tip. I miss communicating without an electronic device. I miss our telephone system consisting of two tomato soup cans tethered together by leftover yarn. I miss the rotary. I miss the old phone booth in the corner of my father’s drugstore. I miss being able to disappear for awhile without a stupid ringtone screeching in my purse. And texting! When I liked a boy, I passed him a note in homeroom. (And then, I got stuck marrying him.) But now – no notes, no whispers, no mystery...everyone just sends crafty and inappropriate messages via cyber space. It’s preposterous. I miss the human factor. It’s gone…the way of Slinkies and Lite Bright. And by the way, I was the Mistress of the Crank

Question #1 In 1964, what was the cause of a dispute centered on the newly-constructed Dupont Town Hall?

Peeking into the past With Judy Minsavage

1964 – 48 Years Ago The Jenkins Township Volunteer Hose Company purchased a 1940 American LaFrance “foamite” fire truck from an airbase in western Pennsylvania. The truck, manufactured to battle electrical and oil fires, underwent renovations at Port Auto Body Shop operated by John Garuba. Helen Miller of Port Blanchard completed the lettering work. Upon the truck’s arrival at the hose company, fire chief Frank Barnousky, president Joseph Gorman and hose company members Ronald Connell and Art Donahue inspected the new acquisition. Truckson LaFrance started the LaFrance Manufacturing Company in 1872. In April 2007, to celebrate its 175th anniversary, American LaFrance relocated 18 fully-restored antique fire trucks to their newly-opened museum in Charleston, South Carolina. With the onset of football pre-season practice, head coaches for the school districts were named. Bob Barbieri moved from Old Forge to Pittston High, Nick Volpetti, former aide at West Pittston, moved to head the Exeter Panthers program. Returning as head coaches were Clem Russavage, starting his third year at Northeast, Merle Bainbridge as fifth year coach

at West Pittston, Pete Podwika, having eight out of nine winning seasons, remained at Wyoming and third-season coach Nick Anzelmi stayed at West Pittston. Johnny Lucas, of Pittston, thought he had caught a recordsize bullhead catfish at Lake Waccabuc, New York. In fact, Sunday Dispatch hunting and fishing columnist Gene Zambor tentatively confirmed his claim, admitting he would have to check with Field and Stream statistics. Zambor maintained the fish weighing 13 pounds four ounces and measuring 28 inches, was certainly not a channel catfish because Lucas’ catch did not have the customary forked tail. Also ruled out was a blue catfish due the uncharacteristic jaw line. Fishandboat.com lists the record bullhead catfish weighed four pounds 10 ounces and was caught by Ian Radle of Palmerton at Beltzville Lake in Carbon County. Swimmers Frank Angella and Claire Linskey, of Pittston, Billy Pope, Joe Gillespie, John Chiampi and Patty McCole, of West Pittston, were selected to compete in the Jaycee Junior Olympics conducted in Bethlehem. The six took part in a preliminary meet at the Pittston pool. 1974 – 38 Years Ago In 1973, the Duryea Women’s Club collected books for

World War II – yes, the famed “Yankee Clipper.” Acernese had always wanted to see DiMaggio again under better circumstances. In 1974, DiMaggio visited Pocono Downs and Tony and his grandson Louis had a chance to catch up on old times. Tony claimed he saw DiMaggio hit a ball over 400 feet while at Pearl Harbor and that he was not only the best baseball player ever, but also “one of the nicest guys he’d ever met.” DiMaggio helped the Yankees to nine World Series titles and broke the record for hits in consecutive games with 56. The Dupont Little League V.F.W. team manager Stan Knick, assistant manager Ed Vogue Jr. and coach Stan Knick Jr. were confident their players would do well in their match-up against Duryea in the Lions Tournament. They had good reason.

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq. U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler found that that National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has failed to take required action to address the catch of severely depleted populations of Atlantic river herring and shad populations by the New England industrial herring fleet. The court found that a Fisheries Management Plan must protect all stocks that “require conservation and management” and may not unreasonably delay making such decisions. The court also found that the service failed to minimize bycatch in the herring fishery. * * * * * An award of $650,000 to two Ohio tourists who wound up spending weeks in Louisiana prisons after they were locked up on public drunkenness charges days before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans was overturned Monday by a threejudge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The judges concluded that U.S. District Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon was wrong to uphold a jury verdict that found Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman falsely imprisoned the two men. The decision also reverses a finding that Gusman’s staff was “deliberately indifferent” to the men’s inability to call family or lawyers on the phone to arrange bail before the storm trapped them and thousands of other inmates inside the jail facilities. Under normal circumstances, Gusman would have been responsible for releasing the men if no probable cause was found for their arrests within 48 hours. But the 5th Circuit judges found that requirement was not applicable because both federal and state law provides exceptions in case of an emergency.

the proposed library to be housed in the new Duryea Municipal Building being constructed on South Main Street. After gathering over 15,000 books and storing them in several places, the decision was made to transfer them to the old municipal building for safekeeping until the new building was ready. However, on June 25, just three weeks after the transfer of the books, the former municipal building was destroyed by fire. Shortly after the fire, The Women’s Club began a new drive to collect books for the proposed library. The Pittston Area School District was set to christen its new baseball field. In the late ‘30s, the Number 10 Silk Mill, which occupied the area, was destroyed by fire. By 1947, George Bone decided to build a baseball stadium on the land which, at the time, was a burning culm dump. St. John’s and Pittston High Schools played many a game at the stadium, including the traditional Thanksgiving match-up. In later years, the stadium attracted the likes of Rocky Marciano and the Chicago Cardinals Baseball team for exhibitions, stock car racing in the 1950s and major league baseball and football. Although the newlyrenovated 41-acre site would be dedicated only to high school sports, many felt that, out of habit, residents would continue to refer to the facility as Bone Stadium.

tee, hoped to recreate the park programs of the past. Children enjoyed sack races, various contests and refreshments. With the Summer Olympic Games underway, Wyoming Area School District can boast of four swimmers who participated in the Junior National Swim Championships in Fort Lauderdale in 1984. Team members Karen Winsock, Deana Cassetori, Nadine Pribula and Cindy Butcofski put together a superior time of 4:41.6 for a relay event at the Mid-Atlantic Championship in Philadelphia. Cassetori, a six-time district champ, would also compete individually in the breaststroke event. The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring Photographer asked, “Do you feel the Soviet boycott of the Olympics has been a major factor in the United States domination of the Games?” Jim Sperrazza, of Harding, answered, “Yes, and the American athletes are taking full advantage.” P.J. Pribula, of Exeter, stated, “No way, the USA came determined to win and that’s what they’re doing.” Joseph “Mugsy” Matreselva, of Wyoming, added, “We’d still be winning. We have always been superior to them in the summer games.” The Soviets boycotted the 1984 Olympics in retaliation for the U.S. boycott of the 1980 Olympic Games, which protested the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Along with the Soviet Union, East Germany, and Cuba, 14 other countries boycotted the Games held in Los Angeles.

Anthony D'Angelo, of West Pittston, provided this circa 1930s photo of a barbershop located on the third floor of Pittston's Dime Bank Building on the corner of Dock and Main Street. Pictured is Rex Cataldo in the center. D'Angelo recalled that the other barbers were known as Mike and Charlie and that Cataldo went on to become the owner of the shop in the Hotel Sterling in Wilkes-Barre for 40 years. Cataldo also owned and operated City Barber Institute of Wilkes-Barre and, during Governor John Fine's administration, was appointed to the Pennsylvania State Barber Board. Tony also remembered that Fred Gubitose, of Parsonage Street in Pittston, was a teacher at the Empire Barber School in the 1950s. Cataldo passed away in 1998 at the age of 98. His daughter, Betty, still resides in the area.

saying.” Edwards isn’t sure if she would have signed on to the suit if asked. “We’re here and we’re fine, so I don’t know. My husband and I would really have to talk about it.” The suit also alleges that Duryea officials ignored information that the Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency enlarged the flood plain in Duryea around February 2010 because levees in the WilkesBarre area were elevated to 44 feet. Luzerne County EMA Coordinator Stephen Bekanich would not confirm or deny the plain-

tiffs’ claim. “At this point, I’m not going to comment,” he said, “because I might be called to testify in that suit.” The plaintiffs in the suit are Leonard and Theresa Ameika, Joseph Boyko Sr. and Paula Ward-Boyko, James and Ada Chropowicki, William Field Jr., Bernard and Lisa Golubiewski, Sally Guzik, Sean Heffron, Kirk and Colleen Jones, Stanley Kapish, Ray Lauer and Angelo Constanzo, trading as Starry Night Realty; Joseph and Karey L.

major sewer project, the construction of the streetscape and businesses returning. “I’ve heard more positive comments about the downtown this year than I’ve heard in the past 42 years combined, Mullarkey said.” And he’s looking forward to seeing two highly-anticipated projects come to fruition: The riverfront condominiums and the North Main and William Street commercial development. The Tomato Festival Parade route is approximately two miles long and will begin on Main Street in South Pittston, proceed through the downtown to Kennedy Boulevard and end on East Street, adjacent to Cooper’s Co-op building. If

you can’t make it downtown, the parade will be televised by Fox 56 with personalities Jane Adonizio and Erin Dugan. Mullarkey said he’ll help out at the race as much as he can before he’s needed in the parade. “It’s going to feel a little bit ironic,” he said. “As we pass the festival grounds, they’ll be awarding the runners. And I’ll be in the parade. It’ll be a different experience, but I’m looking forward to it.” Mullarkey was born and raised in Pittston and Hughestown. He graduated from St. John the Evangelist High School in 1969 and went to Wilkes College where he earned a degree in psychology. He was proud of his role as a linebacker and fullback on the Wilkes Colonels football team. “We lost the third game of

my freshman year and the team didn’t lose again until after I graduated, he remembered.” Mullarkey, 67, lives in Hughestown with his wife, Ann Marie. They have three children, Joe Mullarkey, Michelle Hopkins and Maria Burakiewicz; and five grandchildren, Michael Patrick Hopkins, 12; Megan Ann Hopkins, 10; Madeline Marie Hopkins, 8; Vincent Burakiewicz, 3; and Christian Burakiewicz, 1. Jim Deice, parade chairman, said because Mullarkey was retiring from the city, choosing him as parade marshal was a natural choice. “He made a commitment to the city and we decided to make a commitment to him,” Deice said. “We wanted to show our appreciation for his (42) years of service to Pittston.”

“August...the month of the Pittston Tomato Festival” Up until the end of the 18th century, physicians warned against eating tomatoes, fearing it would not only cause appendicitis, but stomach cancer from the skins adhering to the lining of the stomach.

It was later tested and proven in 1820, that tomatoes are non poisonous and safe for consumption. Today, it is one of the most popular eaten vegetables by the every day consumer, especially in the summer months.

To help residents and businesses be better prepared for the risk of flooding, the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has launched a website containing the new Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). West Wyoming Borough will adopt the new FIRM mapping in November along with an up-

dated Flood Plain Ordinance.

The site provides information to municipal officials, residents and insurance agencies and brokers. It also alerts users to the potential risks and responsibilities associated with being located in a floodplain. The website features an interactive risk-identification tool that allows users to enter an address and access information relating to that property.

Users will be able to determine if a property is in a floodplain, specific building code regulations that pertain to a property and if there is a mandatory flood insurance requirement for that address Morning Star Post 904

Loyal ‘socks’ it to ‘em in state 10-11 tourney Pittston Township Little League called ‘first class’ and ’first-rate’ By JACK SMILES

As they came off Fred DeSanto Field after winning the state championship at the Pittston Township Little League on Thursday the Loyalsock 10-11 Little League All-Star team players were greeted by what they called the “Pittston Rowdies.” “One of the biggest parts of the tournament for us,” said Loyalsock manager Eric Nagy, “were the Pittston Rowdies or Crazies as we called them. They were waiting at our gate and chanting our kids names.” Nagy was talking about the Pittston Township Little Leaguers who adopted the Loyalsock team to root for during the tourney. “The local crowd got bigger and bigger,” Nagy said. “In the

semi-finals they started rooting for us and kept us pumped up.” Loyalsock defeated West Point 14-7 in the championship game. They also defeated State College and Middletown on their way to the title. Staging the tourney was an enormous undertaking for the Pittston Township Little League. It took months of planning by the volunteers led by Pittston Township league president Carman Sciandra and tournament chairman Tom Tigue to pull off the week-long, 15-game tournament. The tourney opened Friday, July 27 with former major leaguer Andy Ashby throwing out the first pitch at the League’s field on Bryden Street.

Many local businesses helped with donations of money or inkind. The township supervisors helped with the expense of tents and portable toilets. Pittston Township Ambulance EMS Don Hudzinski arranged for a certified EMS for each game, along

with a medical tent and a cooling fan. Geisinger 303 Medic had an ambulance on site. Nagy said his team and fans, who commuted from home an hour-and-a-half to each game, were blown away by the quality of the tournament. “Our whole team was thoroughly impressed. Pittston Township is a first rate, first class organization. We were super pleased. Personally I’d like to thank Carmen Sciandra and all the volunteers who made our trip through the tournament a success.”

Rob Lopata was the chairman. Couniclman Jeff Kaminski was one of the volunteers. He said the tournament was a success. “Ever

year it’s getting better and better,” he said. “We’re getting it down pretty good.” The winning team was Pittston Fuel. Casey Kassa was the runner-up. The Dupont Coalcrackers were the host team. Lopata said the volunteers were great. “There were so many volunteers who helped out with field maintenance, concession work, clean-up and planning throughout the 3-day weekend I’d rather not list them because I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out.”
