TONY CALLAIO/FOR THE SUNDAY DISPATCH


Autumn leaves memories lives and works in Chicago now, and I can’t remember the last time we played miniature golf. On the other hand, if you give me a minute, I probably can. There’s very little about his youth I do not remember and this time of year conjures up one of the best recollections. The street department policy in Clarks Summit was to rake your leaves to the curb in front of your property and the municipality would come along and vacuum them. It not only made a beautiful sight around town but was also a pretty sweet arrangement for homeowners. Except me. At our house, the trees, and therefore the leaves, were in the back yard. Acting on the advice of a neighbor, I addressed the problem with the help of a bed sheet. I’d spread the sheet on the grass and rake as many leaves as I thought it would hold into the center. Then I’d gather each of the four corners in my hands,

give them a twist or two, and sling the whole thing over my back like Santa’s sack. Out front at the curb, I’d release my grip and, voila, leaves ready for the vacuum. The kids, of course, always “helped.” The first time we did this, it wasn’t long before Michael figured out the role he wanted to play in the operation. Out of the corner of my eye, I watched him creep into the center of the sheet. I, the unknowing dad, played my part perfectly. I just kept raking leaves, ostensibly unaware of his presence, until he was covered completely. All the while I kept asking Greta, “Now, where did that brother of yours get to? He was just here a minute ago.” This prompted giggles from under the pile of leaves, but I knew my character in this drama was not only supposed to be blind but also deaf. Greta played along, too.

“Maybe he ran into the house for something,” she said, a finger to her lips while pointing to the pile of leaves, just in case I was that stupid. By then, I was ready to hoist the sack. “My goodness,” I groaned, pretending to strain under the load, “this is the heaviest bag of leaves yet. I must have raked too many.” The struggle to the front was punctuated by more groans and grunts and comments like: “Am I getting weaker?” “Did someone put a cinder block in this sack?” Giggles from within – again, apparently inaudible to me – filled the crisp air. But my best performance was reserved for the emptying of the sack and the shocking discovery of the surprise inside. I played it to the hilt. The crazy part is that we immediately went to the back yard and did the whole thing all over again, right down to the “Where’s that brother?” and the

feigned surprise at the unveiling. And then again and again until all the leaves were deposited out front. The other day my son was telling me about the game he plays in his apartment with his dog and cat. “Truman,” he’ll say, “find Gizmo.” And the dog goes scurrying off until he locates the cat. At times like these I tell Michael the thing about him that pleases me most is that he knows how to love. That’s more important to me that any career successes. The reason he knows how to love might be because he’s been loved. Gratifying as that notion may be, I deserve no credit. Loving him – and his sister – is the easiest thing I’ve ever done. And it keeps getting easier. Which means I suppose I wouldn’t trade any tomorrows, after all. They hold too much promise. Besides, all the yesterdays are right there in them.

I lived in Clarks Summit from 1989 to 1995 and my favorite way to get there from Pittston was via Coxton Road and the scenic Newton-Ransom Boulevard. Any current drive on that two-lane stretch makes me think of rolling along with my nine or ten year old daughter sitting next to me and her six or seven year old brother on a booster seat in the back. I was lost in that reverie one day last summer when I drove past the little miniature golf course at Red Barn Village. It was my son’s favorite place in the world. On the way back, I stopped, took a photo with my smart phone and emailed it to Michael with this message: Janis Joplin sang in the song Me and Bobby McGee, “I’d trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday.” That’s a preposterous notion, Mike. But on a beautiful summer’s day, standing here at Red Barn Village, it gets me to thinking. That little tyke with the golf club turns 26 on Thursday. He

Union workers picket UFCW construction site Union says they weren’t used in bank project By JOE HEALEY

jhealey@psdispatch.com

Members of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades picketed the site of the United Food and Commercial Workers federal credit union being constructed on South Main Street Friday morning. A large inflatable rat, kept inflated by a gas-powered generator, was set up on the sidewalk near the picketers. Bob Griffiths, IUPAT union representative, said his union’s labor is not being used for painting, drywall and glass. “They’re building this building with non-union workers,” Griffiths said. “Our union does business with this credit union.

They were told it will be developed, built and sold to the UFCW after-the-fact or there will be a long-term lease. “It’s bad business for UFCW,” Griffiths said. “We’re probably going to pull all of our accounts out of here and go to a credit union that’s all union.” The big rat is symbolic of “them being a rat,” Griffiths

PITTSTON AREA SCHOOL BOARD

Lawsuit against PA may be nearing end Bob Linskey disputes removal from LIU board JOE HEALEY

jhealey@psdispatch.com

Pittston Area school director Robert Linskey’s federal lawsuit against several current and past board members alleging political motivations were behind their decision to replace him as the district’s representative to the LIU may be nearing an end. Linskey had been named to a three-year term as the LIU representative by a 5-3 vote at the Pittston Area School Board’s July 2011 meeting. He served in the position only until Sept. 20, when the board voted 5-4 to replace him with current board president Linskey Tony Guariglia. During the board’s regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, board member Charles Sciandra asked Solicitor Joseph Saporito how much the district would have to pay if it were determined the district were at fault. Saporito said $10,000 would be paid before the district’s insurance policy would kick in. Linskey said he “did nothing wrong” in filing the lawsuit and he questioned Sciandra’s motivation for bringing up the matter. Sciandra said district’s tough financial situation was the reason. He then challenged Linskey to make greater attempts to resolve the issue outside of the court setting. Guariglia suggested Linskey drop his suit and offered him the LIU seat back. The board recessed into executive session mid-meeting to discuss the lawsuit. When the board returned, Guariglia indicated that the parties involved may be close to an agreement, and said the parties

PA grad promoted with Maryland State Police

A.J. McAndrew

Andrew J. McAndrew (A.J.), formerly of Pittston, was recently promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel by the Maryland State Police. He is currently the chief of the Field Operations Bureau. The Field Operations Bureau is the most visible part of the Maryland State Police since it includes all troopers who regularly interact with the public. Within the Bureau are five commands: the Northern Command and Southern Command, which to-

gether encompass the 22 barracks; the Aviation Command; the Special Operations Command; and the Transportation Safety Command. The Northern Command is divided into the Central, Northern, and Western troops and the Southern Command is divided into the Eastern, Southern, and Washington Metro troops. Troopers assigned to each of the 22 barracks patrol every county in Maryland, enforcing laws and answering calls for assistance. Unlike many state police agencies that are strictly highway patrol, the Maryland State Police is a full-service law enforcement agency. . McAndrew, a1980 graduate of Pittston Area high school, received an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Luzerne County Community College, a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland and a Master’s Degree in Management from the Johns Hopkins University. McAndrew began his law enforcement career in 1983 when he joined the Baltimore City Police department. He served for four years in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. He and his wife, Melinda, reside in the Baltimore suburbs

The Earthly Angels are dedicated to helping local children afflicted with autism. Their mission is to increase autism awareness and give support to qualified non-profit organizations for autistic services. This is the fire department’s fourth consecutive year of providing charitable donations to organizations who in turn provide services and help to others in need in the local area. The donation is made possible through the generous support shown from local businesses as well as individuals who continue to answer the department’s call for help at Pittston Tomato Festival time.

Bloggers rock the downtown for ‘fest’ By JACK SMILES

jsmiles@psdispatch.com

Reds and Blues, Rs and Ds, candidates, politicians, newspaper columnists, radio personalities, politicos and, of course, bloggers packed Rooney’s Irish Pub on Main Street on Friday night for the sixth “Blogfest.” Democrat Gene Stilp – who is running against Congressman Lou Barletta in the 11th District – was there with his pink pig bus and giant wheelchair parked out front. Also in the crowd were Democrat candidate Matt Cartwright in the 17th District and his opponent Laureen Cummings; Phyllis Mundy and her November opponent Aaron Kaufer; and Phil Scollo who is taking on Republican Tom Marino in the 10th. The fest started at 6 p.m. and by 8, the crowd spilled out onto the sidewalk. For former West Pittston mayor Bill Goldsworthy, who works in Governor Corbett’s Scranton office, Friday’s fest was his third. “It’s the third one I’ve been to. It gets bigger every year. They say it’s not political, but all we do is talk politics. But it’s casual. No speeches. I appreciate the bloggers putting it together.” Bill Urbanski, Chairman of Luzerne County Republican Committee, was there with Republican committeeman Alex Milanes. “It’s my first blogfest,” Urbanski said. “I was surprised by the turnout. You’ve got Rs and Ds here so it’s nice to mingle with the competition.” Milanes agreed saying, “It’s great opportunity to socialize with both sides of the aisle.” Joe Valenti, who blogs at pittstonpolitics.com, was one of the organizers of blogfest. “It’s a great turnout for a non-local election year,” Valenti said. “It far exceeded our expectations. The local bloggers agree to have it here every year because Pittston’s kind of in the middle of Lackawanna and Luzerne counties. And at the end of the day it’s good for Pittston.” Stilp was impressed by the event and the city. “All the congressional districts are here,” Stilp said. “Pittston looks great and it’s great for Pittston. The fest has a far reaching effect.

This shows the power of the new social media. With papers closing this is the wave of the future.” Pointing to his giant mock wheelchair he said, “It conveys my message, Preserving Medicare with no vouchers.” Stilp added a little dig at Barletta saying, “God help those who aren’t here.” John Hudanish came all the way from Carbondale where is the writer of a column called My Two Cents in the Carbondale News, a weekly paper. He said he came to mingle and because he supports Stilp and Cartwright and maybe to get fodder for a column. “Mr. Stilp has all of Wyoming County, which just a few miles from my door and from my district we have Mr. Cartwright,” Hudanish said. Democrat Phil Scolo, who will try to unseat Republican Tom Marino in the10th District in November, said blogs are impor-

tant. “It’s an outstanding event. A lot of divergence of opinion.” With a chuckle he added, “Blogging is where it’s at now. I rely on my 14-year-old daughter to keep me up with the technology, but I’m a huge supporter of the blogs.” Aaron Kaufer of Kingston, a Republican running against incumbent Phyllis Mundy, said, “It’s a great event. It’s good for local politicians to show up.” David Madeira, who bills himself as a “recovering politician” on his radio show on 94.3 FM, had a good time. “It’s great fun. It’s amazing how low key it is. You’ve got a right winger like me, then you’ve got Gort, then you’ve got politicians who don’t usually go somewhere that’s not controlled.” “Gort” is Ben Hoon who blogs at as Gort42 and is a pioneer loSee BLOGGERS, Page 11

Pittston Police are investigating a reported home invasion on William Street on Saturday morning. Police were on the scene at 167 William St. for well over two hours into Saturday afternoon. Police confirmed they are investigating Graziano and nobody was hurt. Officers from eight local police departments responded. A police officer carrying a shotgun was seen in the area. This is the second home invasion in the city in recent days. An elderly Pittston man was robbed in his own home by a man brandishing a butch knife on Sept. 13. Pittston Police arrested Matthew Graziano and charge him with the crime. According to police, on Sept. 13, around 11 a.m., police dis-

patched to a residence on North Main Street on a report of a robbery. Sam Alesso, 88, told police a male entered his home from an unlocked back door. The male brandished a butcher-type knife and pointed it towards Alesso and told him that he would kill him if he didn’t give him his money. The male then turned Alesso over on the couch and removed his wallet. He took approximately $54 from Alesso and fled on foot. The description as given to police was checked with the surveillance cameras of a local business. The male was seen inside the business shortly before the robbery took place. The male was known to police from prior police contacts as Matthew Graziano. Luzerne County 911 immediately put the description over the radio. The male was observed at a South Main Street parking lot by the Luzerne County Sheriff’s Department and transported back to the Pittston City police

Half way to St. Patricks’ Day When, like your father before you and his father before him, you tend to celebrate your Irish heritage 365 days a year, it tends to be a long haul from one March 17 to the next. That’s exactly what the Greater Pittston Friendly Sons of St. Patrick were thinking when they came up with the idea for a “Half way to St. Patrick’s Day Happy Hour,” which they celebrated last Saturday, Sept. 15. The setting was The Red Mill

tavern, S. Main Street, Pittston, and the occasion was sweetened by the broadcast of the Notre Dame vs. Michigan State football game. The victory by The Fightin’ Irish didn’t hurt. Past President Patrick Bilbow did some bartending and the afternoon even included an appearance by The Black Diamonds bagpipers. Corned beef sandwiches highlighted the menu. Only six months to go.

Members of the Scranton-area Black Diamonds perform at the Red Mill for the Greater Pittston Friendly Sons of St. Patrick HalfWay to St. Patrick's Day Party last Saturday night.

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq.

Illinois has become one of thirty-one states that have cottage food laws. Eight others have laws pending. The law allows baked goods, jams, jellies, fruit preserves, fruit butters, dry herbs, dry herb blends and dry tea blends prepared in a home kitchen not subject to public health inspection to be sold at farmers’ markets, subject to certain rules and restrictions. *** In Maine, a new law passed in June 2011 that ended same-day registration was overturned by voters. So voters now will be able to register and vote on Election Day in 2012. *** A new law in Tennessee provides new protections for whitewater rafting companies. The measure protects operators from lawsuits over injuries or even deaths when the rafter can be shown to be at fault. *** The South Carolina Supreme Court prevented dozens of candidates from appearing on South Carolina primary ballots because of missing paperwork. The state Supreme Court ruled that candidates should have filed financial paperwork when they filed to run for office in March. This was the first year for a new system for candidate filing. *** A new law permits motorcyclists to ride two abreast in single driving lanes in Virginia.

OUR OPINION

A way about him Msgr. John “Jack” Bendik is pictured on page 3 near a newly erected street sign proclaiming the former alley behind the former Seton Catholic high school, connecting Church Street with Foundry Street, “Monsignor Bendik Way.” The honor and recognition could not be more appropriate. Nor could the name. Since his arrival in Pittston as pastor of St. John the Evangelist Church, later to become St. John the Evangelist Parish Community, some 18 years ago, Msgr. Bendik’s unique way has had a profound effect on Greater Pittston residents of all faiths. His decisive but gentle way was most evident during the year 2007 when he presided over the closing of three local churches and guided his flock through those painful times. His thoughtful, spiritual way was felt again and much appreciated during the closing of financially strapped Seton Catholic high school. And his loving, supportive way gave the go-ahead and necessary support to his parishioners to begin a free health clinic, food pantry, and children’s clothing closet in the former Seton building, three ministries which have grown to near legendary status. Msgr. Bendik, of course, accepts little credit for any of this, which is also his way. We love the irony that the new Msgr. Bendik Way intersects with Church Street. We believe we speak for all of Greater Pittston when we say we are fortunate that Msgr. Bendik’s way has intersected with our lives.

It’s apple season Apples, a food available all year round is especially plentiful now in Pennsylvania. This year’s crop in the northeast is less than previous years, but they are still available. The counties further south have plentiful crops. It’s fun to learn the different varieties and how to best bring out their flavors in recipes. In Pennsylvania, we grow several traditional varieties along with some heirloom. Apples can be enjoyed as a snack, in salads, in pies, applesauce and of course just baked. The best overall type of apple which fits in all of these categories is ginger gold, Cortland, golden delicious, nittany, stayman (winesap), fuji, braeburn and granny smith. How can you easily add apples to your diet? Here are easy tips to get you started: Slice an apple onto your sandwich or salad for a crunchy treat. Dip apple slices in low- or no-fat vanilla yogurt for an easy lunch or snack. Stir chopped apples with the skin on into your hot or cold breakfast salad. Add chopped apples to your favorite coleslaw Add chopped apples to your favorite pasta salad recipe Add apples and sliced cabbage to sauerkraut when heating (takes the bite away) Add sliced apples onto top of pork chops when baking Add sliced apples to your favorite chicken stir fry recipe Once you purchase apples, either from the orchard, farmer’s market or store, keep them at their best by following this storage and handling tips: Select firm apples free from bruises. To keep apples crisp, keep them cold. Apples ripen 8 to 10 times faster at room temperature. Store apples in a ventilated plastic bag or hydrator drawer to prevent them from absorbing other food flavors. Dip apples in lemon juice after slicing to prevent browning. Always wash apples in plain water before eating. Apples are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth yet not cause tooth decay like soda and candy. They also contain insoluble fiber and phytochemicals in their peelings so keep the skin on. What are some unusual ways to use apples? Try Apple Pizza for breakfast. Apple Pizza

Stop the Bullying Before It Starts Is Your Child Being Bullied? Almost 30% of the youth in the United States, or more than 5.7 million children, are estimated to be a bully, a target of bullying or both. There also appears to be a strong relationship between childhood bullying and adult legal and criminal problems. Studies show that bullies are generally physically aggressive, hot tempered, easily angered and impulsive. Children and youth that are bullied are typically anxious, insecure, and cautious. They suffer from low self-esteem and rarely defend themselves.

See LIBRARY, Page 17

2 FREE Lessons

Many times children are embarrassed to tell their parents or other adults. They end up being very shy and afraid to be out-spoken and stick up for themselves...especially later in life. Bullying can cause a problem with grades and school work. Worse yet they might want to fit in and become a member of a gang, try drugs or other illegal activity. Sometimes parents don’t realize it until the child reaches their teens and they start to see who they hang around with or a change in their attitudes and school work.

Peeking into the past

Question In 1967 what issue concerning the separation of church and state would greatly With Judy Minsavage affect the Greater Pittston Area? 1947 – 65 Years Ago Borough council members of Avoca, Pittston Township and Dupont weighed the decision to fight the Delaware & Hudson Railroad in the courts over the company’s mandate to remove manually operated crossing gates at dangerous crossings, replacing them with automatic flashing signals. Three crossings in the respective boroughs had experienced several fatal accidents and, because of the disagreement, the Public Utility Commission granted the railroad an extension to lay off “watchmen” at the sites and replace them with the new signals. Borough officials felt the answer to the continuing problem, although expensive, would be the construction of underpasses. Attorneys expected the legal battle to cost each borough $500 and advised council members to join forces to share in cost. The first flashing red signal was installed in New Jersey in 1913, but railroad watchmen operated their posts at intersections across the country well into the 1950s. Champ Brewery, formerly Glennon’s, on North Main Street was in receivership and company employees and city officials feared the sale would end the presence of a brewery in the city. Mr. Cohen, of Reading, who headed a second hand concern and Mr. Green, associated with Cooper Brewing

Interests of Philadelphia, were both listed as successful bidders. Roscoe Smith, of Kingston, and Martin Monahan, of Pittston, were named as receivers and petitioned the court to award the property to the Philadelphia concern in order to keep the brewery in operation. According to the 1947-1948 Wilkes-Barre Record archives, the Champ Brewery, of Pittston, was sold at receiver’s sale to Ted Smulowitz, owner of the Lion Brewery. Champ Brewery closed in 1948. Rookie New York Yankees pitcher Frank “Spec” Shea had lunch at the Pittston Diner with Russell Bufalino and Peter Butera, both of Pittston, and Angelo Pollizza of Dunmore. Shea was a major league baseball pitcher from 19471955. He was credited with winning two games for the Yanks in the 1947 World Series. In an impromptu interview, he was asked, what he was doing in Pittston. His reply was, “I don’t know.” When informed he was in Bucky Harris’ hometown, he responded, “Great Town.” Shea was a pitching consultant for the 1984 Robert Redford film “The Natural.”

Fort Jenkins Bridge, south to the old post office building and east to Carbondale Road were about to be leveled. Removal of several buildings on the south side of Water Street, including the old City Hall, the Lehigh Valley Freight Station and several other smaller structures was about to begin.

The Avoca Kitchen Band was scheduled to play during a hat fashion show sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of Hose Company #1 at the Hughestown High School auditorium. The unique band utilized kitchen utensils and other household items to create music. Over 150 delegates attended a reception held in the V.F.W. Fort Pittston post home in support of

the Korean Bonus Bill. Commander Charles Adonizio of VFW Post 635 and Anthony Forlenza Anthracite Counties Council VFW Junior Vice Commander asked that all local posts campaign in support of the bonus. The bill cleared the Pennsylvania Legislature and was placed before the people for approval. The Bonus Bill provided additional monies to be paid to soldiers who served during the Korean Conflict. Pennsylvania Governor David L. Lawrence eventually signed the bill into law in April of 1959. 1967 – 45 Years Ago Avoca cousins Specialist 4 Frank P. Donahue Jr. and Specialist 4 William Burnside Jr. served during the Vietnam War. Specialist Donahue was stationed at Pleiku in the central highlands and Specialist Burnside was stationed at Pho

Cat some 50 miles away. The cousins hoped to have a reunion there. Donahue, moved by the condition of the clothing worn by children at a local orphanage, asked that anyone who may have extra children’s clothing to send it to him and he would deliver it to the orphanage. Pittston residents, priests and dignitaries participated in a program dedicating the new convent of St. Rocco’s Church. Members of the Greater Pittston Business and Professional Women’s Club Nadine Holleran, Marie Mack, Carolyn Clark, Ann Bernatitus, Evelyn Davies, Louise Allardyce, Margaret O’Boyle, Rose Mitchell, Helen Blandina and Doris Hale planned their annual card party.

Cosgrove helps honor ‘Lieutenant Dan’ Pittston native on hand as actor Gary Sinise is made Honorary Chief By ED ACKERMAN

ot since Bob Hope, John P. Cosgrove says, has he seen an entertainer more dedicated to serving America’s men in uniform than actor Gary Sinise. And Cosgrove, Pittston native who spent the past 70-plus years in the media in Washington, D.C., should know. He knew Bob Hope and worked alongside him on several projects. Sinise, best known for his role as Lt. Dan in the 1994 movie “Forrest Gump,” has become a supporter of all those in military service but especially amputees. In the movie, Sinise’s character loses both his legs in action in Vietnam. Cosgrove was on hand recently as Sinise was honored by the U.S. Navy as an Honorary Chief Petty Officer in a ceremony at the Navy Memorial on Pennsyl-

vania Avenue. The Navy has declared 2012 the “Year of the Chief.” Chief Petty Officer is the seventh enlisted rank in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, just above Petty Officer First Class and below Senior Chief Petty Officer, and is a senior non-commissioned officer. The grade of Chief Petty Officer was established on April 1, 1893, for the Navy. Himself a U.S. Navy World War II veteran, Cosgrove called the chief “the backbone of the Navy.” The official kick-off of the Year of the Chief and the 119th birthday celebration of the chief petty officer took place during a ceremony April 2 at the Navy Memorial. Cosgrove, who will note his 94th birthday next month, is a member of the Board See CHIEF, Page 26

According to an article in The Sunday Dispatch, the theatre was built in 1924 by the Comerford Amusement Company and was the eighth theatre in the country to offer movies with sound produced by a machine called a Vitaphone. Projectionist Stanley Yanik recalled problems with the machine skipping, especially when the Main Street Trolley rumbled by. The theatre, originally used for stage shows, was one of the last old-time movie houses promising to only run “family-oriented” movies.

With 11 parochial schools in the Greater Pittston Area, the state and federal issue of providing government aid to ailing parochial and private schools became a hot topic in 1967. If aid was denied, transfer of more than 2,500 area students to the public school system would cost more than $1 million. Proponents of the assistance argued that parents pay tuition to their schools but still pay taxes to their respective school districts. Many felt government aid crossed the line of the separation of church and state. Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And, this is all life really means. Robert Louis Stevenson

of Directors of the Navy Memorial, serving as secretary. He is the longest serving member of the board. Cosgrove pointed out that on October 13, which is also the 237th birthday of the U.S. Navy, the 25th anniversary of the Navy Memorial will be noted along with the 25th anniversary of the Lone Sailor. According to the Navy Memorial website, The Lone Sailor, a bronze sculpture honoring all who served or are serving in the Navy, “is a composite of the U.S. Navy blue jacket, past, present and future. He’s called the Lone Sailor, yet he is hardly ever alone, standing there on the broad granite plaza which forms the amphitheater of the Navy Memorial. Visitors to the Memorial are immediately drawn to him to peer into his far seeing eyes, to admire him or size him up, to see if he’s as tough or as gentle as he seems. “The founders of the Navy Memorial envisioned this Lone Sailor at 25 years old at most, a senior second class petty officer who is fast becoming a seagoing veteran. He has done it all – fired his weapons in a dozen wars, weighed anchor from a thousand ports, tracked supplies, doused fires, repelled boarders, typed in quadruplicate and mess-cooked, too. He has made liberty call in great cities and tiny villages, where he played tourist, ambassador, missionary to the poor, adventurer, souvenir shopper and friend to new lands. His shipmates remember him with pride and tell their grandchildren stories, some of which, like him, are seven feet tall.� Cosgrove said conferring the rank of chief on Sinise is entirely appropriate and fitting. “He has been a leader at Memorial Day services in the capital for each of the past several years and has dedicated a great deal of his time to our men and women in uniform,� he said. Cosgrove began a personal relationship with Sinise a few years ago during Memorial Day weekend. “He wanted to see the Newseum,� Cosgrove said, “and I was only too happy to play host.� The Newseum is an interactive museum dedicated to news and journalism located on

Pennsylvania Avenue. It is also Cosgrove’s address. He lives in an upper-story condominium in the building. Sinise was so impressed with the Newseum that he sent for his mom, dad, uncle and children and, with Cosgrove as host, all enjoyed an impromptu Memorial Day picnic on the rooftop deck which provides one of the best views of the Capitol in the city. Sinise and Cosgrove have been friends since. “I’m not much for autographs,� Cosgrove said, “but I had a photo of the two of us with Miss America from this year’s Memorial Day parade and at the Honorary Chief ceremony I asked Gary if he would sign it for me. Of course he obliged. I’ve been so impressed with him and the role he’s assumed toward the military that I consider the photo something special.� For the record, Cosgrove, who grew up on Main Street Pittston, has had his photo taken with every U.S. president since Herbert Hoover. Sinise is co-founded the Lt. Dan Band, in which he plays bass guitar, to entertain U.S. troops and raise money for gravely wounded warriors. The Gary Sinise Foundation was formed in 2010 and is dedicated to serving the United States by honoring its defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need. For more, go to www.garysinisefoundation.org

John P. Cosgrove, a member of the board of the Navy Memorial, listens to remarks by actor Gary Sinise at a ceremony during which Sinise was named an Honorary Chief.

Note: John P. Cosgrove has donated his life’s collection of books, letters and memorabilia to the Pittston Memorial Library in his hometown. A portion of the collection is on permanent display at the library and an addition, the Cosgrove Wing, is being added to house the collection and to provide needed space for library projects including an intergenerational program. The library is conducting a capital fund drive for the expansion.

Friends, family gather in support of Floss Babiarz By KALIN MULLIGAN

I’ll find out. It is what it is.” She had an appointment Monday at Fox Chase Cancer Treatment Center in Philadelphia. She did tell the crowd the prognosis was good.

Unexpected happenings can turn the world upside down, but family friends and strangers can help make it right again. That’s what cancer survivor Floss Babiarz was feeling last Sunday afternoon at a benefit in her honor at the Greenwood Hose Company. Many family, friends, and supporters attended to show support for the Avoca native who now resides in Old Forge. “I appreciate everyone’s love, The cake with the inscription it’s very heartwarming,” Babiarz 'Get Well Flossie.' BILL TARUtold the gathering who dined on delicacies donated by several area restaurants and purchased raffle tickets on dozens of specialty baskets, all also donated. Babiarz shared a night to remember with the people that care about her and want to see her get well. “I will not let this beat me, rather I will beat it,” she pronounced to rousing applause. Barbiarz managed to work the room with her charm and spirit, personally thanking everyone for coming to support her. When asked “What is the next step?” her reply was, “Tomorrow Alicia Baron of Moosic, left,

Special council meeting set Wednesday Dupont Borough officials will hold a special Council meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26 in the James Cocco Council Chambers at the Dupont Municipal Building for the purpose of opening bids for the street paving project on Walnut and Oak Streets and Lidy’s Road. Borough Engineer Bob Naegele will have on display the new flood maps prepared by PEMA, DEMA and DCED, giving borough residents an opportunity to review and help with any concerns or questions. Officials meet Carroll

Greater Pittston Area municipal officials attended a meeting on Sept. 14 hosted by State Representative Michael Carroll at the Dupont Municipal Office to discuss the budget shortfalls and limited state grant monies facing the already financially-strapped municipalities. The meeting purpose was to provide an educational approach about shared municipal services, discussing advantages and disadvantages and the potential political pitfalls in the process of developing shared services. The biggest expenses for most communities are police services. Representative Carroll stated programs that, in the past, have helped to fund grants for police cruisers, etc. are now gone. The only financial resources available to municipalities are the LSA gaming monies which will now have all municipalities competing for limited funding. It will be impossible to deliver a grant to each municipality every year and what Representative Carroll is hoping to accomplish from the meeting is to measure the willingness of other communities to participate in shared services. He noted the success of the regional compost facility in Greater Pittston. Seven municipalities are part of this shared service and were able to secure grant funding in the amount of over $450,000. Carroll indicated he is willing to bring the chief of a regional police department and someone from DCED to go over the Governor’s Center Program where they discuss studies on regionalization. The next meeting of community leaders will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12 in the Du-

Patriots get off the snide By TOM DELLOS

For the Sunday Dispatch

Pittston Area quarterback James Emmett doesn’t show off his arm often, but when he does, it can be dangerous for opponents. Just ask Tunkhannock. Emmett connected on 5-of-7 passes for 166 yards, including three touchdowns, to lead the Patriots to a 47-0 win over the Tigers on Friday night. On the first play of the game, Emmett threw a picture-perfect pass from his 30-yard line down the right sideline, meeting wide receiver Jordan Housemann in stride. Housemann was brought down at Tunkhannock’s 12. That 58-yard completion set up a touchdown pass to Kyle Gattuso with 10:44 remaining in the first quarter. “James has a very, very good arm,” Pittston Area coach Mike Barrett said. “He doesn’t always have the confidence to throw and he’ll hold back sometimes, but his arm is strong.” With 3:56 left in the first quarter, Emmett found Hassan Maxwell over the middle for a 30yard touchdown to cap a sevenplay, 63-yard drive. The Patriots got the ball back three plays later after a leaping interception by Mike Schwab, who returned the pick 43 yards to set up a Kyle Gattuso 2-yard touchdown run, stretching the lead to 20-0 with 2:24 remaining in the first quarter.

Justin Wilk broke the game open with 7:29 left in the second quarter with a 72-yard touchdown, bursting through a hole up the middle untouched. Wilk rushed for 95 yards on four carries. The team rushed for 262 on 23 carries. Zach Erfman had 71 yards on six carries The Patriots took a 26-0 lead into halftime. In the second half, the Emmett-Housemann connection wasn’t finished. On their first possession of the third quarter, Emmett found Housemann yet again along the right sideline for a 64-yard touchdown to give the Patriots a 33-0 lead. “When I dropped back, the line was blocking perfect tonight,” Emmett said. “Housemann got open and I was able to find him. He made some big plays.” Houseman, in his first action of the season, caught two pases for 122 yards and the Td. Pittston Area’s defense stifled Tunkhannock, forcing six punts and only allowing 112 yards of total offense, which aided the Patriot offense in executing the way it did. After a Tigers fumble was recovered by Pittston Area’s Joe Giambra, Emmett completed a 32-yard pass to Joe Starinsky who made a diving catch at the 1-yard line. Marc Romanczuk scampered in the end zone to put the Patriots up 40-0 with 4:17 left See PATRIOTS, Page 41

in the third. “Our kids really practiced hard this week,” Barrett said. “We have some inexperience and the last few weeks I didn’t think we played too bad, but we shot ourselves in the foot at times. We just want to develop our fundamentals. I’m very happy for our kids to get a win like that.”

Pittston Area proved to be efficient offensively, scoring on seven of its 10 possessions, as Josh John added a 23-yard touchdown run with 8:53 remaining in the fourth quarter to seal the Patriots first victory of the year. “It feels great to get a win,” Emmett said. “We’ve just got to bring it back for next week."

jsmiles@psdispatch.com

A playoff berth will be on the line Tuesday for the PA golf team when they play Tunkhannock at Shadowbrook in the final regular season match of the season. The Patriots help themselves by beating Dallas at Fox Hill and Dallas helped PA by beating Coughlin at Irem. Coughlin is done with the regular season at 6-4. The Patriots are 5-4 and can tie Coughlin atop AAA Division 1 and get in the District 2 playoffs by winning Tuesday. For PA Matt Carroll 35, Ryan Tracy 37, Chris Lynch 40 and Calvin O’Boyle 42 scored against Dallas. Shoot 168 one day and win by 20 strokes. Shoot 171 another day and lose by 19.

Warriors even mark with rout of Hanover By TOMMY ROMANELLI

Dispatch correspondent

Anna Malsky was the Queen of the Wyoming Area Homecoming Friday night and Nick O’Brien was King of stats in the 43-8 victory of Hanover. The first quarter was uneventful. Wyoming Area barely even had the ball in their hands due to Hanover taking their opening drive and using up almost ten minutes of the clock, but when WA did get the ball on their side of the field, the made sure not to keep it too long. The Warriors had the ball on the 41 yard line with 8:36 in the second quarter when Nick O’Brien took the snap under center. O’Brien was able to find a hole up the middle, passing a defender out and then found a crease between two more coming at him from both sides. O’Brien shook them off with a spin move and then raced in for the touchdown. That put the Warriors up 6-0 after a missed extra-point. “He’s One of those premier players,” said WA Head Coach Randy Spencer. “He’s got that ability to do those things.” WA was right back at it though. Cody Schmitz intercepted the ball and set up opportunity for another O’Brien long Td run. O’Brien took the QB keep and slipped through defenders up the middle. He broke two more tackles, regained his balance, and ran down the field for a 46-yard touchdown. WA completed the

two point conversion attempt with a pass reception by Jordan Zezza for 14-0. “Every time I touch the ball I want to score,” said O’Brien. He almost pulled that off as four of his seven carries were Td runs. O’Brien finished with 193 rushing yards on 7 attempts for a whopping 25 yards-per-carry average After the second O;Brien Td, Wyoming Area held Hanover and forced them to punt. Cody Schmitz took the punt and ran down the left sideline for a special teams touchdown. The touchdown was set up though, by a monster block by O’Brien putting the Hanover defender on his back. The Warriors were then up

22-0 after a completed pass in the end zone by O’Brien to Trent Grove. It went to 29-0 on a 6-yard Td run by O’Brien with 42 seconds left in the first half set up by his 74-yard pass to Jordan Zezza. Hanover would get in with a late touchdown but not before the Warriors scored two more times to make it 43-0 on a 66yard run by O’Brien and a 5-yard run by Zak LaNunziata. The Warriors (2-2) are at Nanticoke Friday. Below, No.12 Jordan Zezza and No.10 Farrad Condry stop Hanover’s Brian Belcher for no gain. Right, Warrior’s No.8 Nick O’Brien is off on one of his 4 Td runs.

The Patriots scored all three of their goals in the first half, two by Matt Tavaglione in an eight minute stretch as the Patriots picked up a Bridge point with a 3-2 win over the rival Warriors on Friday at the Bucky Harris Complex. Jordan Consagra scored what proved to be the winner just before the end of the half. He also had an assist. WA scored once in each half both by Zach Sypniewski, in the first assisted David Klaproth. Sypniewski scored a goal of his own in the final minute. PA coach Pat O’Boyle said while it’s been a tough season for both teams, the rivalry is always special. “WA played hard. Their goalie did a fantastic job. Consagra scored for us with two seconds left in the first half. You don’t see that very often and that was a big goal for us. Both teams only had one win going in, but with WA it’s always one of those games.” First half: 1. PIT Matt Tavaglione (Jordan Consagra), 8:00; 2.

A 60-mile bus ride didn’t bother the Lady Patriot field hockey team. They went up to Montrose on Thursday and won easily 8-0. Junior Dana Maurizi had a career day scoring four goals assisted by Alana Platukus on a corner, Liz Mikitish twice, and Emily Herron. Julie Lieback scored on a corner assisted by Alexa Danko, who also assisted Platukus on one of her two goals. Paige Danko also scored. For the Patriots it was their fourth consecutive win since they dropped their opener to Northwest. PA coach Caitlin Hadzimichalis said the girls are improving. They are definitely getting better every game,” she said. “In our first game we had a lot of opportunities and didn’t finish, now we are finding ways to finish.” Today’s game with Wyoming Area is an exhibition. PA is in Division 3 and they don’t cross over to Division 2. WA is in Division 2. Asked if she expects the game to be competitive or a game where everyone plays, Hadzimichalis said, “Both. We’ll try to get everybody in, but both teams take it pretty seriously.” The Patriots also shut out Berwick this week 3-0 on Wednesday in Berwick. Nicole Chaiko scored and dished out an assist for PA. Dana Maurizi and Liz Mikitish also scored for the Patriots and Katrina Mikitish had an assist. PA outshot Berwick 18-4. Though Wyoming Area is 1-6 four of their losses were to Division 1 teams in crossover games and another was a 2-1 loss to unbeaten Holy Redeemer. Four of their losses were to teams with a combined record of 22-6. They are better than the record. More tough luck last week as WA lost in overtime 3-2 to Division 1 Delaware Valley after leading 2-0 as late as 6:24 of the second half. The Warriors got first half goals from Serra Deg-

nan and on goals by Bree Bednarski. Del Val scored at 6:24, then tied it 2:36 and won in overtime. The Warriors got their only win on Wednesday September12 defeating Lake Lehman 3-2 in over time Degnan scored the winner assisted by Sally DeLuca. Bree Bednarski scored two goals in regulation for the Warriors assisted by DeLuca and Gianna Gennetts. The Warriors lost to Dallas 4-0 on Monday in Dallas.

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Lady Warriors beat Lady Patriots, Valley West By JACK SMILES

jsmiles@psdispatch.com

With four starters on the bench for skipping practice to go to a football game, Sam Acacio and Jessica Sorick rescued the Lady Warriors in their match Monday in West Pittston against the rival Lady Patriots. Acacio had nine kills and one block and Sorchick had five kills and 10 service points as the Warriors came back from being down two sets to one to win the last two sets and the match 3-2. After WA took the first set 2520, PA fought back with 25-14 and 25-21 wins forcing WA into two do-or-die sets. WA won the fourth set 25-13 and the final one 15-12. WA coach Noah Pickett comes from a serious volleyball culture at Lake Lehman where he was a player and coach. He wants WA to develop more respect for the game and that’s why he took a stand when the girls skipped practice, even with PA as the opponent. With the regular line up back in action, the WA made it a 2-0 week by defeating Valley West in Plymouth on Wednesday 3-1. Audrey Heidacavage paced the Warriors with 19 assists and six service points, while Melissa Kazmereck chipped in with seven kills and seven service points and two aces. WA won the first two sets 2517 and 25-21. Valley West pulled out the third set 25-22. The Warriors put the match away 25-14 in the fourth set. The Warriors are 3-3. They picked up a Bridge point for the school, but the week was a wash as PA won the boys soccer game.

So Thank you all for the aid, help and assistance to every single person, organization and business that gave of themselves to help us celebrate the momentous occasion.” Front row, from left, Major Sheryl Hershey, Angelo Falcone, Frank Casarella.
