TONY CALLAIO/FOR THE SUNDAY DISPATCH


Colonoscopies, politics and wonton soup The drug that accomplishes this let’s you know why people become addicts. Since you must fast before the procedure, they serve you breakfast right after it. My wife said she never saw a happier look on my face than when I dove into that banana, to which I responded, “Banana?” That’s how good this drug is. I had no recollection of eating a banana, let alone of a doctor snooping around inside of me. Apparently while eating the banana I kept insisting they had not yet done the procedure. I repeat, good drug. So, I have no apprehension about another colonoscopy. The fasting is another story. I hear these days they have you fast for 24 hours. Believe it or not, that’s a relief. I had to fast for two full days last time, 48 hours of nothing but clear fluids and, oh yes, a couple of bottles of citrate of magnesium, which does what

you think it does. When the medical people say they want you “clean” they mean it. That’s where the wonton soup comes in. A colleague at the college and a close friend for some 25 years had said weeks earlier that he wanted to take me out to lunch as soon as the spring semester ended. He was about 19 or 20 when we first met, he as a college intern at this newspaper, and I as managing editor. I guess I’m close to 15 years older than he and through the years I apparently had stabbed the check every time we got together over food or drinks. I hadn’t noticed but he had. And he insisted it was time to turn the tables. Nice gesture. The problem was working out a time. Our schedules were so packed it seemed nearly impossible to get together.

That’s why when we finally found a suitable date, one afternoon right after exam week, I insisted we keep it … even though it turned out to be on one of the aforementioned “two days.” “But you won’t be able to eat anything,” he stressed with genuine concern. “I’ll find something,” I countered. “Besides, if we don’t do this now, God knows when we will. And it’s not about eating food as much as it is about having a relaxing conversation.” We went to a Chinese buffet, his favorite, and while he filled his plate – the first of several times, I might add – I scouted around for an item I could handle. I eyed up the Jello squares for a good 30 seconds before rejecting them on their redness and finally settled on a cup of wonton soup … with, of course, no wontons. Oh, and I did drink some hot tea.

At the register, my friend paid the flat rate for the buffet he consumed and I told the young lady all I had was wonton soup with no wontons. I spared her the details. Puzzled, she went in search of the manager and came back and told my friend the charge for me would be 19 cents. It’s been eight years and I will not let him live down the fact that the one time lunch was on him, it cost him all of 19 cents. It was a presidential election year and the primaries had just ended. Then, as now, there was much talk from every candidate about all the marvelous things they were going to do for the middle class. All I kept thinking, though, was that in my experience, any time a politician talked about helping the middle class, the result turned out to be a lot like a 19-cent bowl of wonton soup with no wontons. Or a colonoscopy.

I’m due for a colonoscopy, which makes me think of wonton soup and presidential politics. Give me a minute and I’ll try to explain. A little more than eight years ago my doctor informed me it was time. I knew what he was talking about before he said the word. The thing with colon cancer, he explained, is that if you discover the signs early, it’s no big deal, if you don’t, it’s a death sentence. That was enough for me. But just the thought of it made me cringe. I’m not even all that comfortable with my dental hygienist sticking her fingers in my mouth. Anyone who’s gone through this procedure, however, will tell you it’s nothing to be concerned about. And I agree. That’s mainly because you don’t remember it.

The pantry also gets food from the Weinberg Regional Food Bank in Wilkes-Barre and Feeding America of which Wal-Mart is a member. “We get an enormous amount from Wal-Mart,” Burke said.

To Care and Concern Food Pantry director Peggy Burke, what happens at the pantry is akin to the Biblical story of the loaves and fishes. “Whenever it gets low,” she said. “Food appears from somewhere.” Not that what happens there is miraculous, but it is amazing. The pantry opened four years ago this month in the old Seton Catholic High School and, since then, has distributed 35,000 bags

of food to low-income families in the 15 towns throughout the Pittston and Wyoming areas. When the pantry first opened, food baskets were distributed to 25 families a week. Today, they are distributed to 80 families a week on a rotating basis. The pantry has not only grown in quantity, but also in quality. Four years ago, the pantry distributed non-perishables only, such as canned goods and boxes of cereal and pasta. Now the pantry also distributes milk, donated by Blue Rib-

St. Peter’s Evagelical Lutheran Church sets spaghetti dinner benefit for 3 three local families

Hughestown church reaches out By JOE HEALEY

jhealey@psdispatch.com

Three families fighting three very different battles. And one church coming to their aid. St. Peter’s Lutheran Church on Rock Street in Hughestown will hold a spaghetti dinner to help the Zimmerman, the Homschek and the Grogan families. The Zimmerman family, of Moosic, lost its patriarch, Brian, in a lightning storm at the Pocono Raceway in June. The Homschek family’s son, Keith, of Hanover Township, was hurt in a motorcycle crash on his way to a benefit for a sick relative.

Included in the dinner are spaghetti, salad, dessert and beverage. There will also be a silent raffle for prize baskets. “We’re trying to help families that are in need of our help,” said Pam Hanczyc, of Hughestown, the Church Council Secretary. This is the first time the church is doing a fundraiser like this, but Hanczyc says it won’t be the last. “We’re hoping to continue this, to make it an annual event,” she said, indicating hopes of selling 300 dinners.

by private citizens, VFWs and other clubs, firemen, dance groups and sports teams. The pantry has also gone digital with a donated computer and has gotten wheels with a donated van. The 20-plus volunteers range from the food handlers, numerous; to the box cutter, Bob Clarke; to the Information Technology guy, Carl Boos. The pantry is sponsored by the Care and Concern Ministries of the Parish Community of St. John the Evangelist, which also runs adult and pediatric health clinics and a Children’s Clothes Closet. Msgr. John J. Bendik, pastor of the Parish Community, is impressed by the ministries’ projects which began with the health clinic the year before the food pantry. “Phenomenal,” he said. “People were coming to the health clinic asking for food and Peggy asked if we could open a food pantry. These guys work so hard. People in the Greater Pittston community are willing to serve. And it’s great that it’s here in Seton Catholic. Otherwise, this building wouldn’t be used or would have to be rented out and that wouldn’t be right. Since the

Right now, the pantry is accepting gently-used adult winter coats. Burke said the pantry has had the same core group of 24 volunteers for all four years of its existence and could use a few more for the heavy lifting. “We’re always in need of young men on Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11:15 to carry food bags and baskets out to cars.” Jane Moss, a St. John’s parishioner, was inspired to volunteer by her mother, Jane Roche, one of the original 24. “I’m here to help out somebody less fortunate,” Moss said. “We all have a need sometime.”

Zimmerman, 41, was the victim of an act of nature. Nine others were injured in the lightning strike just after a heavy thunderstorm system caused officials to call the Pennsylvania 400 early. Zimmerman was near his car in a parking lot after the race had ended when lightning struck the car, said Monroe County Coroner Robert M. Allen. Bystanders performed CPR on him after he went into cardiac arrest until paramedics arrived, Allen said. Paramedics took Zimmerman to the track’s medical facility where efforts to revive him failed. The strike occurred at about 5:01 p.m., the track confirmed. Zimmerman left behind his wife, Marion, sons, Cole Patrick and Chase Randolph, and a daughter, Lana Christine. “His wife and mother-in-law worked for me when I had Bright Smiles Day Care Center,” Hanczyc said. “It’s so tragic what happened.” The track has established a fund for Zimmerman’s three children. “We’re going to contribute to that,” Hanczyc said. Jill Grogan was seven months

pregnant in 2010 when she found out her husband, 45-year-old Arthur, had a brain tumor, specifically a GBM- Glioblastoma Multiforme IV. After three surgeries and travel to Philadelphia and elsewhere for treatments, the bills have been piling up. “The expenses are mounting,” Jill said. When he was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2010, he underwent surgery to remove it. He’s been battling with recurrence and a new tumor ever since, one near his right temporal lobe and one in his right frontal lobe. He lost the use of his left side and now walks with a cane and a leg brace. Their church, Jill said, helped keep the family strong. The Grogans have two children, a daughter Riley, 13, and a son, Arthur, 18 months. “They’re wonderful people at the church,” Jill said. “As bad as things are right now, we’re blessed with good friends and family. Everyone’s has been so wonderful.” Homschek Jr., 21, was riding his motorcycle on Suscon Road on Aug. 11, 2012 in a benefit ride for his aunt, who has lung cancer. That ride changed his life forever. He lost control of his bike and crashed into a pickup truck, causing him to lose his right leg

below the knee and suffering breaks in his other leg and both arms. “We’re just glad he survived,” said his mother, Jessie.

The medical bills and travel expenses are costly and Jessie was unable to work while caring for her son. The road to recovery is arduous. Homschek had nu-

merous surgeries and fed himself for the first time just last week. “He’s coming along,” Jessie said. “His spirit is great. That’s so important.”

Lawyer to probe teacher incident Board hires independent counsel over allegations teacher belittled student By JOE HEALEY

JOE HEALEY/THE SUNDAY DISPATCH

“In seventh grade, my daughter was physically attacked by another student,” Kovach said. “She was clotheselined into a metal door.” Kailee sustained a head, back and neck injury. Mrs. Kovach met with a school official, but the official mishandled it, she said. “He lied and tried to cover up the incident,” she said. The excuse Kovach received from the school was the other girl was playing “red rover.” “Unfortunately for my daughter, she had no idea she was playing that game,” Kovach said. A teacher, Kovach said, was in the room but “turned her back as to what was happening.” Several students volunteered to relay what they saw, but school officials declined to listen, KoSee PA BOARD, Page 17

PA hosted Blakely at West Park in ‘66 Peeking into the past

Question #1 Duryea Borough officials arranged to welcome “an individual of historical importance” on his With Judy Minsavage scheduled Nov. 1, 1956 visit. Who was he? 1956 – 56 Years Ago Michael Chiampi, president of the Good Will Hose Company in West Pittston, received an American flag from Minnie Mange Janke, of West Pittston. The flag was presented to Janke at the funeral of her husband John, an Army veteran who served in France during World War I. Mrs. Janke’s nephew, James Skipper, was a member of the hose company. A few interesting tidbits appeared in the 1957 Ramblin’ Round Our Town Column in the Sunday Dispatch as follows: • Pittston public school children do pretty well with milk. During the short term of September, the school milk bill totaled $283. • Plans are underway to publish a new Greater Pittston Directory by the R.L. Polk Co. The last regional directory was published in 1948. If it goes through, the new directory will be issued in March 1957. • Just in case you think the present drilling for gas or oil in Ransom is a first of its kind, we noted in a story from the Pittston Comet, one of Pittston’s first newspapers, a story and advertisement from Poule and Co. It advertised ‘expert drillers for coal and oil in Greater Pittston.’ The story appeared in 1874. • Pittston City officials were elated that a project to install new and paint existing street signs had been completed. In a call to The Sunday Dispatch, an “upper Pittston” resident reported one sign had been missed. The resident insisted that the sign be preserved though as it had a rather interesting story attached. Many years before, John Ormsby and other residents in that section donated land along their properties to the city in order to provide residents with a public passageway to North Main Street. When city officials placed a sign on the alley, it read “Barnum Alley.” Taking offense, a young Maude Ormsby, knowing the contribution her father had made, climbed the pole, removed the Barnum Alley sign and replaced it with one on which she had written “Ormsby Alley.

1966 – 46 Years Ago Billed as the “game of the week in Pennsylvania” and with a conference title on the line, the contest between coach Bob Barbieri’s Pittston Area Patriots and Peckville’s Blakely Bears drew a crowd of an estimated 5,000 fans. Blakely, going for their 47th consecutive Lackawanna Conference title, struggled throughout the game as the Patriot players, some of which included Stan Klocko, Ed Brennan and Eddie Booth, maneuvered a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Bears, however, were determined and battled back, winning the game with a third-quarter field goal. The crowd was believed to be the largest to witness a game at Albert West Park since it had re-opened for scholastic play. It was estimated that the Patriots had played before at least 25,000 fans in just four outings. Jenkins Township Hose Company battled with township supervisors over a strip of land connected to the hose company property. Township officials claimed the strip of land, once listed as a street in 1881 on coal company maps, was still a street and planned to use it as an access to an existing housing development. The hose company claimed the land was part of their purchase agreement and was slated to be used for expansion of their facility. Mrs. Al Sellock, Mrs. Jerome Holland, Mrs. Donald Kane, Mrs. Wilbert Lawler and Mrs. Edward Holleran, members of the United Mothers of America, were planning a “unique Fashion Cabaret by Candlelight” event. Anthony Angeli was scheduled to provide “cordovox melodies.” Mrs. Patrick Cawley, Mrs. Angelo Montante, Mrs. Jerry Zezza, Mrs. Eugene Maria, Marie Galasso, Marie Lombardo, Mrs. Merle Bainbridge, Mrs. George Menn, Mrs. Donald Moss, Mrs. Joseph Sciandra, Mrs. Donald White, Mrs. John Hoover, Mrs. Ross Mantione and Mrs. Jerome Kardos, members of the Education Department of West Pittston Women’s Club, observed National Book Week. The women sponsored a storytelling hour at West Pittston Library for children in kindergarten through third grade. 1976 – 36 Years Ago

In 1941, as a young man, Bill McCabe, of Pittston, was in one of the first convoys to leave the U.S. for Hawaii after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. When he arrived, he recalled, “The ships were still burning.” An accomplished cook, Bill served as a Mess Sergeant during his five years in the Army, sometimes feeding as high as 3,000 service members in various locations around the world. Upon his return to the States, he worked as a chef at the Mayfair Supper Club in Pittston. In 1976, Bill, who also worked as chef at Seton Catholic High School, was honored by the school during National School Lunch Week. Serving about 350 lunches a day, Bill claimed the students’ favorites were spaghetti, meatloaf, wimpies and barbeque chicken, adding that, at 50 cents a meal, the lunches “were a real bargain.” Bill gave credit to the success of the lunch program to his two assistants, Mary Ann VanLuvender and Carol Remsky. Nocera’s Jewelers in Exeter advertised a half carat diamond ring for $299, Radio City on Broad Street in Pittston offered a 19” 100% solid state color television for $388. The Staircase Lounge featured “The Poets plus Frankie and the Corvettes,” “Hot Pepper” and Disco Nite, Biscotti’s in West Pittston offered spaghetti with meatballs for $1.50. A tray of pizza cost $2.85 at Charlie’s Pizza and Hoagie Shop, Klocko’s Happy Valley had “Jonathan singing your favorite tunes” and a boneless stuffed chicken breast dinner could be enjoyed at the Starlight Lounge in Falls for $3.75. Question #2 In 1976, what new Exeter League contained the following teams: Bernie’s Pizza, D. Construction, Jerry Clapps Auto Sales, Kessler 5, Lombardo’s Bakery, Brogan’s Heroes, Carmen’s Flowers and Casetori’s Barbers? 1986 – 26 Years Ago Members of the Circle K. Club, Student Government, Vets Club of Penn State University, Wyoming Area Band, Lake-Lehman Key Club and West Pittston Boy Scouts took over the American Theatre Building. Their aim was to terrify anyone who entered. The haunted theatre was expected to attract hundreds of brave souls during the week of Halloween. 1996 – 16 Years Ago Christina Lyn Bilder of West Pittston won the title of Miss Hemisphere. The international competition title awarded on modeling, beauty and talent

was presented to Miss Bilder at Mount Airy Lodge. Ariane Palmasani, of Pittston, was awarded the Early Bach Medal during the National Guild of Piano Auditions. In previous auditions, Ariane was awarded the Founder’s Medal. Dr. Irl Allison founded auditions sponsor, The Piano Guild, in 1929 and according to their website, “the Guild has grown to more than 850 audition centers where thousands of students enroll annually.” The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring Photographer asked, “Which team will win the World Series?” Father Leo McKernan, of Avoca, answered, “The Yankees; they have been out of series a long time.” Jim Deice, of Pittston, added, “The Yankees in six; tradition is in their favor.” Joe Falzone, of Pittston, stated, “The Yankees; with Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte, they have some of the best players around.” The 1996 World Series matched the defending champion Atlanta Braves against the New York Yankees. The Yankees won in six games to capture their first championship since 1978 and their 23rd overall. They became the third team to win a World Series after dropping Games 1 and 2 at home and became the first team since the 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers to win four straight games after dropping the first two. Answer #1 Frank Kimowski, chairman of the “local Republican Party.” made arrangements to assemble a “caravan” to meet the motorcade that would accompany Vice President Richard M. Nixon as it traveled through the borough of Duryea on Nov. 1, 1956. Nixon served as the 36th vice president of the United States under Dwight D. Eisenhower from 1953 to 1961. Eisenhower suffered a mild stroke in November 1957 and Nixon gave a press conference, assuring the nation that the Cabinet was functioning well as a team. Nixon won his bid for office of the president in 1968. Answer #2 The Carefree Lounge Shuffleboard League started its season in October 1976 with 34 players divided among eight teams. Although the game has transformed over its extensive history, the country of origin is a mystery.

Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep. Catherine O’Hara


Re-naming ceremony is set By JOE HEALEY

jhealey@psdispatch.com

The Pittston Post office will officially be renamed in honor of fallen Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Joshua D. Miller on Oct. 24. A ceremony is set for 10 a.m. and will include family members, friends, and colleagues of Miller, according to a news release from the office of U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta. Barletta sponsored a bill to officially dedicate the postal facility at 11 Dock Miller Street as the Trooper Joshua D. Miller Post Office Building. The public is invited. Miller, a 1992 Pittston Area High School graduate, was shot and killed on June 7, 2009 along a stretch of Route 611 near Tobyhanna. He was shot by Daniel Autenrieth, who kidnapped his own 9year-old son during a custody exchange at the boy’s home in Nazareth, Pa., and led police on a 40-mile high-speed pursuit to Coolbaugh Township. After the chase ended, Miller and Trooper Robert Lombardo, of Pittston, approached Autenrieth’s vehicle. Autenrieth refused to exit the vehicle and, after the two troopers used batons to break his vehicle windows, opened fire on them, striking Miller in the leg and neck and Lombardo in the shoulder. The troopers returned

fire, striking Autenrieth eight times. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Lombardo recovered from his wounds. Miller, the Pittston Township resident and Pittston city native, was 34 and left behind wife Angela and three daughters Justine, Joslyn and Breana. Barletta introduced a bill to rename the post office last July. It was cosponsored by the entire Pennsylvania delegation to the House and it passed that chamber in November. The Senate approved the bill by unanimous consent. The bill was signed into law by President Obama on June 5. The stretch of the roadway where Miller was shot already bears his name, thanks to legislation approved by the state General Assembly. It was designated the Trooper Joshua D. Miller Memorial Highway and thenGov. Ed Rendell awarded him a posthumous Medal of Honor.

OUR OPINION

Need indeed

At first glance, the stories appearing today on page 3 and page 9 will seem drastically different. One, on page 3, about the Care and Concern Food Pantry located in the former Seton Catholic school in Pittston, is about abundance and generosity. Since opening four years ago, the pantry has distributed 35,000 bags of food to low-income families in the 15 towns throughout the Pittston and Wyoming areas. It’s also a story of success, of sorts, if more people in need can be called success. When the pantry first opened, food baskets were distributed to 25 families a week. Today, they are distributed to 80 families a week on a rotating basis. The story on page 9 may seem an opposite one. It’s about the food pantry at the Salvation Army Food Pantry in West Pittston, where Major Sheryl Hershey is sad to report the cupboards are nearly bare. Hershey says the Salvation Army feeds more than 50 families in any given month. But need has been running ahead of donations. “Last week we came to the point where we only had six cans of food in our food pantry,” Hershey said. She pointed out that need is so great that the local mail carriers canned food drive, staged around Mother’s Day and providing food that usually lasts until Christmas, already has run out this year. “With the amount of families we’ve been helping, we find ourselves running short all the time,” Hershey said. Although the Salvation Army is desperate for donations, their story too is about abundance and generosity. It is what has sustained them through the years. And Major Hershey is confident she will see an outpouring of both. The stories are also the same in this: the need of struggling families is greater than ever. Major Hershey points out that an eligible family can receive a box of food, with canned goods, dry food, some meats, including ground beef, ham and baloney, once every 30 days. But boxes of food generally only last two weeks. Because the Salvation Army is considered an emergency food bank, it can’t supply a full month’s worth of food. We encourage everyone to do what they can to help these two groups in their efforts to ensure than no one living around here goes hungry.

YOUR OPINION

Says isolationism is the answer for USA Isolationist! Now that’s a peaceful term and more and more I’m drawn to it. In my humble opinion, the world has changed to the point where the United States needs to change or greatly adjust our role in the world. We can no longer afford to be the world’s cop/peace keeper, we can no longer afford the position. In recent yeas, I have given much thought to the possibility of the United States becoming an Isolationist nation. We don’t need the world and we can’t afford the role we have taken on. The benefits of being an isolationist nation are huge and I just don’t see the downside. I think we should begin this process by bringing home every single member of the military. That means leaving Germany, Japan, Korea and every other country and absolutely the Middle East. The role of our military would then be to stand guard on our borders allowing anyone to leave who wishes to but not allowing a single soul into the country other than through proper and legal ways. This would end the drug problem as well as the undocumented folks who came here without legal permission. This guard duty would allow us to maintain our Army and Marines and of course this would give them ample time for training. The Coast Guard would continue its life saving duties but would be a strong part of our border patrol keeping our water borders secure. Our Navy and Air Force would be used to keep us safe from any outside danger. We need to enlarge our naval fleet and concentrate on nuclear operating aircraft carriers and submarines. We have recently christened the first of our new nuclear submarines which are 400 ft long and carry the most technological savvy crew in our nation’s history. With a fleet such as this, we would be in a position to strike any nation that would dare try to harm us. The governments of other countries would be held responsible if harboring groups that are intent on harming us and

we would strike back any time we are attacked. Can you imagine the financial impact if the total of our military payroll was spent within our borders? Talk about an economic explosion and the good type of economic explosion. Nothing would be imported from any country that causes a trade deficit. We would no longer pay farmers to not grow our food and we would then have food to export creating jobs and revenues. Foreign aid would be in the form of food and clothing. These poor nations cannot eat or wear the billions of dollars we give them. Often times that foreign aid is used against us and we know how often those same nation aid takers vote against us in the UN. We have every natural resource we need and our steel mills would start up again and we would once again become an industrial nation. Education would be mandatory in that no child will leave school without knowing the three "R’s" as we used to refer to them. Yes this is simplistic but life doesn’t have to be complicated. I recall an old saying, "KISS" meaning Keep It Simple Stupid and I think we have long forgotten that simple cliche. If we did become a true Isolationists nation, maybe the world would be better off. I know we certainly would be. No wars unless we are attacked in some form, no cheap imports to put us out of business and a self reliance that would cause an surge of national pride and a real rush of employment due to jobs returning to our country. This might upset the Romney’s of our world because there would also be a curtailment of off shore investments. You live here, you invest here. The now meaningless term of "Job Creator’s" will become a reality and the money saved by bringing our military home would be used to keep us the strongest nation in the world. Wil Toole Dupont

Random notes on the news If legislators were serious about reducing crime, drug abuse, school drop outs, welfare rolls and many other social ills there is one thing they could do right now that would work. It would take a generation, but it would work. And it’s not just my opinion that it would work. It’s a fact backed up by studies and stastistics. The one thing? Stop subsidizing out-of-wedlock children. It is a fact, again backed up by studies and stats, that the best way to stay out of poverty is to do these three things: finish high school (at least), get married before having children and stay married if you have children. Married families are vastly more affluent than single-parent families and much less likely to fall into poverty. Good bad ads

Sometimes when candidates say “bad” things about each other in TV ads the bad things are really good. Take for example Tom Smith versus Bob Casey for U.S. Senate. Smith’s ad calls Casey a do nothing senator, who “hasn’t passed any bills.” Good. We have enough bills. Less in more. Government doesn’t have to be the answer for every thing that comes up. And Casey’s ad said Tom Smith favors a tax cut which would lower his own taxes by $250,000. So what? Does Casey really expect us to believe that Washington would make better use of that money than Smith would? Smith didn’t get rich squandering money like the government does. Smith’s $250,000 wouldn’t cover the cost of salaries and benefits for two of the 450,000 federal government workers who are paid over $100,000. According to an investigation by USA Today, in the last five years, the number of federal employees making $150,000 or more per year has grown 10 times. Poker face

Pennsylvania a mushroom capital Any walk in the woods this time of year will surely be a site for a least one type of wild mushroom growing. Pennsylvania’s climate is perfect for these fungi to thrive. However, be aware! Mushrooms should be purchased from a reputable grower or grocer instead of hunting them yourself, as there are many poisonous mushrooms. Incorrectly indentifying a mushroom can lead to serious health problems or even death. Pennsylvania leads the way with producing 501 million pounds (2010) of mushrooms each year. Penn State is instrumental to the mushroom industry in helping improve productivity. For more information, visit http://extension.psu.edu/mushroomgrower-info. Today the Mushroom Council plays an important role in promoting mushrooms. Mushrooms are a great food to eat. They are super powerhouses of minerals - selenium, riboflavin, niacin, potassium and pantothenic acid. Mushrooms are also fat free and low in calories. If you are a novice mushroom cook, here is how to clean and store mushrooms. First, clean mushrooms only when you are ready to use them. Remove any bits of debris (mushroom compost) on the surface, rinse with cold running water or gently wipe the mushrooms with a damp cloth, paper towel or soft brush. To retain the color squeeze a small amount of lemon juice onto the mushrooms. Store mushrooms for up to a week in the refrigerator. Keep mushrooms in the original packaging until ready to use. Once opened, store mushrooms in a porous paper bag. This will give the mushrooms a longer shelf life. Here is an easy to make soup. Add a spinach salad and a glass of skim milk to round out the meal.

It looks like the state legislatures plan to put mom and pop taverns and private clubs out of business is working. How else could raiding corner bars and VFWs and confiscating poker machines be characterized? If the state police wanted 400 gambling machines why did they run all over two counties rounding them up from bars and clubs that are barely making a living, when they could have gotten them all in one easy raid at the Mohegan Sun Casino? Oh wait, I know. Because casino gambling is all fun and games and nobody ever gets hurt and so it’s legal, while video poker machines in

VFWs are evil and ruining lives so they had to be stopped. Do you think any of the legislators gave a second thought about the corner taverns and small social clubs when they voted to legalize gaming at casinos? Of course not. They just licked their chops at all the money they were going to get to spend and to hell with the little guy. Where’s the fairness Democrats are always crying about? What did they think was going to happen, when casinos can undercut food prices and allow smoking? Governor Corbett, who was not governor when the gaming bill passed, did care. He proposed a bill in 2009 that would have allowed clubs to operate poker machines, but it never came up for a vote, because casino operators went bananas. And who could blame them? Casino operators paid $50 million for licenses and are paying 55 percent of the “revenue they generate” (that’s Harrisburg talk for money people lost), no wonder they don’t want competition from VFWs.

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq.

Connecticut has a new law requiring boat owners to inspect their vessels for invasive aquatic species. *** The Supreme Court has struck down the Stolen Valor Act of 2005, which sought to ban unauthorized people from wearing decorations or medals. *** A controversial use of Illinois’ eavesdropping law - prosecuting civilians for audio recording police officers conducting their public duties in a public place - cannot be enforced against the ACLU and its employees for the foreseeable future. The preliminary injunction was ordered by a federal appellate court ruling that held such prosecutions likely violated the First Amendment rights of the public to record the work of public officials, including on-duty police officers. *** The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which is the federal appeals court that has jurisdiction over federal courts in Maryland and other Mid-Atlantic states, has upheld the constitutionality of a West Virginia law requiring all children to be immunized for diptheria, polio, rubella, tetanus, and whooping cough as a condition to be admitted to public schools.

Fitness Coordinator of the Pittston YMCA, wanted to do something unique for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “I didn’t want to raise money, just make the women more aware about breast cancer and have fun while doing it,” said

Butwin. “I wanted to pack the aerobics room, do some Piloxing and educate at the same time.” About 50 women and one very excited child crowded the YMCA to Pilox, some wearing signs on their backs in celebration and/ or in memory of those battling, surviving or have lost the battle to breast cancer. Information lined the YMCA’s lobby and aerobics room about breast cancer, how to detect

breast cancer, treatments, ribbons and wrist bands for the women to take home with them. “Fifty women are now more educated about breast cancer and that’s all I could ask for,” said Butwin. To continue awareness at the

Greater Pittston will have “Paint the YMCA Pink” week. From October 22-26, members and non-members are encouraged to wear pink when they come to visit the YMCA. Non-members will be able to use the facility for free if they are wearing pink. In-

formation regarding breast cancer and awareness will be available throughout the YMCA. Information regarding Pink Week contact Robert Duliba, Mission and Membership Development Director at 570-6552255 ext. 103.

Gabby said she wants to go to Temple and realizes she’s not good enough to play at a Divi-

sion I school. That doesn’t mean they are done with the game.

“The backyard will always be there,” Gabby said.

Mallory Bohan, left, and Gabby Bohan, right, look up to their sister casey in more ways than one. TONY CALLAIO FOR THE DISPATCH

PAGE 33

Casey Bohan is a serial killer. At Wyoming Area she killed 549. At Wilkes University only nine killers in the nation have killed more than Casey. In the backyard of her parents’ home in Harding they’ve lost count. Casey, 20, a 6-1 junior middle hitter for the Wilkes University women’s volleyball team, is ranked 10th in the country in kills per set and fourth in points per set. Her sisters Mallory, a 5-6 junior, and Gabby, a 5-8 senior, are right and left side hitters for the Wyoming Area girls volleyball team. “We make up a whole front row,” Casey said. The sisters grew up playing family volleyball games in their backyard with their parents – Patrick Bohan who played basketball at Nanticoke and their mother Judy – and a large extended family that includes their cousin Nick Romanowski, the founder of the Wyoming Area ice hockey club, and cousins Lauren and Megan Wysocki, who is a freshman player at Wyoming Area. “We even got grandma to play,” Casey said. When they were little the girls had to sit and watch until they were about eight before they were allowed to play. “That’s how it all started,” Mallory said. Mallory said the backyard games are competitive. “It has to be equal,” Mallory said. “If not, there’s a big fight about it.” To make the games equal, Casey, who is a ringer in the backyard, has to be on a team opposite Mallory and Gabby. “They’re vicious,” the girls mother Judy said of the backyard games. “If you’re picked last and feel bad about it, well, who cares?” When Casey graduated from Wyoming Area in 2010 she left as the volleyball program’s alltime kills leader with 549. Her sisters got to see most of those hits. Mallory was on the firstyear team and Gabby was a freshman. Asked if they look up to Casey as a role model, they said they did, though just a little reluctantly. “Yeah, I guess,” Mallory said.

“She’s good at volleyball and school and that shows you can balance it out. We should try to do that, too, in high school.” Casey is a pharmacy major. Gabby said, “Sometimes we get a little jealous, but it makes us work harder.” With three daughters playing on two different teams Judy sees a lot of volleyball. “From August to November we have no life but volleyball. We don’t even eat at home, but I live for it. I don’t ever want to miss a game.” Eight times this season Wyoming Area and Wilkes had games on the same day. “The minute the Wyoming Area game is over we drive over to Wilkes to see Casey play. It’s always a close call.” Her husband goes with her when he is not working. The sisters all agree that volleyball is an underrated and under appreciated sport, both at Wyoming Area and in general. “Our school is all about football,” Mallory said. “Some kids think volleyball is like a joke, but we take it seriously.” The sisters said most kids don’t grow up playing volleyball as they did and that’s the problem. “There’s no real elementary program,” Casey said. “Little kids play baseball, basketball and soccer.” The sisters were all basketball players when they were younger. “I started basketball at the YMCA in second grade,” Casey said. “I was definitely more of a basketball player. I started volleyball at Wyoming Area in seventh grade and by my freshman year I was more of a volleyball player.” Mallory and Gabby made a similar evolution from basketball to volleyball. Mallory said it’s more exciting than basketball. “You get more of a rush because you have to get to 25 to win.” Gabby had to choose between soccer and volleyball this season when the PIAA moved girls soccer from spring to fall. It was an easy choice. “Volleyball is number one,” she said. Asked if they are likely to play at the college level, Mallory, who is 5-6, said, “I’m probably not tall enough.”

Win over GAR has WA no. 1 in D-2 BY JACK SMILES

jsmiles@psdispatch.com

Facing a 4th-and-9, with four minutes left in the first half Nick O’Brien and the Wyoming Area offense had the GAR defense right where they wanted them. On the play O’Brien threw a 30yard Td pass to a wide-open Jordan Zezza to increase the Warriors lead to 29-7 in their eventu-

al 48-15 win over the Grenadiers on Friday in West Pittston. The Warriors had scored their first Td on a similar play, a 4thand-8, on a 25-yard pass to an equally open Cody Schmitz. In between those passé, O’Brien returned two punts for Tds of 38 and 43 yards. The punt returns were set up by WA punts by A. J. Lenkaitis that pinned GAR at the 5 and 9-yards lines and a swarm-

ing WA defense that put up 3and-outs both times. On the first return, at 1:41 of the first quarter, O’Brien ran along a wall down the WA sideline untouched. On the second return he made one tackler miss at the point of the catch then went down the home sideline again along a superb wall. WA also picked up two-points on a safety in the first half and a

In the second half Cody Schmitz capped a 67-yard 11play drive with a Td run of two yards at 5:45 of the third quarter. Schmitz set up his Td making a diving catch of a pass from

O’Brien for 19 yards to the GAR 7. As much as the offense and special teams were in synch, so was the defense. The defense sacked GAR quarterback Moore twice and allowed him to complete only 9 of 27 for 128 yards. GAR slash Lucas Bennett See WARRIORS, Page 42

Every opponent knows Berwick has an exceptional running back in Matt Cashman. Jeff Steeber went from a receiving threat to a great change of pace back, rushing for a season-high 97 yards on 11 attempts – including the game-winning touchdown with 1:13 remaining – as the Bulldogs held off Pitt-

ston Area 23-20 in a Wyoming Valley Conference matchup Friday. “It’s great. I’ll do anything to help the team,” Steeber said of taking more turns than usual in the backfield. “Our line blocked great. That definitely was the difference.” Steeber had run for 177 yards this season, taking an occasional turn to give Cashman – a 1,000yard rusher – a break. But Friday, Steeber found holes in the Patriots defense consistently. The senior took a pitch to the left to convert a third-and-29 late in the first half. And he had 65 yards already when the Bulldogs (7-1) got the ball back after a Pittston Area punt at the Patriots’ 39 with 4:06 remaining. Steeber took an end around to the right for 18 yards on the first snap of the game-winning drive in the rain. On second-and-goal from the 12, he took a pitch around the right side for a touchdown to give Berwick a 23-20 lead after Cashman’s second two-point run of the night. “It got pretty rough,” Steeber said of running in the mud. “You’ve got to take small, choppy steps to keep from slipping. But hey, a win’s a win.”

goes to a pretty good college next season.” He also had an interception that he returned 28 yards and five tackles. His biggest stop came on fourth-and-2 at the Pittston Area 16, as he filled a hole and took down Cashman for no gain with 5:39 remaining to protect the Patriots’ five-point lead. Travis Potter had two of Ber-

wick’s three sacks and Tanner Weaver had three tackles for loss, including a sack. Though the Patriots had 193 yards passing to 50 for Berwick, the Patriots had a heck of a time running the ball. They had only 26 yards rushing in 21 atenmpts. Emmett complete seven passes for 143. Gattuso completed two for 50.

“Jeff was amazing for us in the fourth quarter, running the ball, evading tackles,” Cashman said. Cashman ran 29 times for 178 yards and two touchdowns, as the most effective offensive weapon for Berwick. Two plays after the Patriots (3-5) took a 14-7 lead in the second quarter, he went over the left side into the Pittston Area secondary. Cashman was sandwiched by two Patriots, each of whom bounced off him in a different direction. He then outran the rest of the defense for a 52-yard score and a 15-14 Berwick lead. “We’re mudders. We like to play in anything,” Cashman said. “Our team showed its heart and soul to fight for this game.” Pittston Area’s Joe Starinsky was the Patriots’ do-all on this night. He had three touchdown catches among his seven receptions for 177 yards. He was untouched on scores of 32 and 51 yards in the first half as Bulldogs slipped trying to grab him for a tackle. In the third quarter, quarterback James Emmett looked to his right before throwing down the left sideline for Starinsky on a 27-yard TD to give the Patriots a 20-15 lead. “He’s an awesome athlete,” Cashman said of Starinsky. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he

Lady Patriots finish 12-3 head to districts Lady Warrior coach Mike Sokolas goes out a winner in last game By JACK SMILES

jsmiles@psdispatch.com

The Lady Patriots closed out the regular season with a 7-0 win over Wyoming Valley West on Senior Day at the Bucky Harris Sports Complex on Monday. Allie Barber had a hat trick before 16 minutes were up and by the end had a double hat trick scoring six of the seven goals. Barber assisted the seventh goal to Maddy Mimnaugh. Samantha Mayers, Carly Filipski and Liz Waleski had assists. Jordan Cumbo had seven

saves for the shutout. The LPs finished 12-3 in third place in Division 3. They are in the District 2A Championship Tournament. The seeding meeting is tomorrow and the first round games are Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Meanwhile at Wyoming Area the Lady Warriors won their final game on Wednesday at Tunkhannock 1-0 in the second overtime. Danielle Stillarty scored the game’s only goal with six minutes left in the second overtime. Jordan Chiavacci stopped 12

shots in goal for the shutout. The LWs needed the win to finish over .500 after losing to Lake Lehman on Tuesday 8-0. They finished 8-7. They also needed to win to send coach Mike Sokolas out a winner. He stepped down after the game after two seasons. “I’ve been splitting my time as the coach and a full time student in College at Marywood,” he said. “It was getting hard to balance my time, and I need to focus going into my senior year.” Asked to assess his two sea-

sons at WA he said, “I came here looking to pass my love of the game on to the girls and to give a soccer program with so much potential some new life. In the two years I’ve been in charge I feel as if those goals were achieved, however it wasn’t me. The girls deserve all of the credit. “They bought into my program, worked hard day in and day out, and believed in each other. They deserved their first division championship in 15 years, and I’m so glad they brought me along for the ride.

“I now know more about the game than I ever have because I learned something new every day. When I decide to get back into coaching in due time, I will be much more knowledgeable about the game thanks to my experiences at WA. Where ever I end up coaching, I’ll always be a Warrior; I’ll always remember where my high school coaching career started and those who I was lucky enough to cross paths with.” The Lady Warriors won a division championship last spring in Sokolas’s first year..

Margaret was the daughter of the late Andrew and Anna Pavlica Loyack. She was the last in a family of 15 children. Margaret’s extended family includes nieces and nephews, their families, and two sisters-in-law. She was especially close to her niece Regina (Jean) Kozokas, who took care of her and her deceased sister Mildred for more than six years. Early on, Margaret worked at EmKay Manufacturing in West Wyoming. Then she and her sister Mildred took care of several aging brothers and sisters in the family home. Later, Margaret became a housekeeper in a

Wilkes-Barre rectory. She again retired back to the family home for almost 20 years before she moved with her sister to an assisted living facility in 2006 due to failing health for both.

She was a lifelong member of St. John the Baptist Church in Pittston, but attended Mass at St. Joseph’s Church in Port Griffith because it was so close to her home.

moved to the skilled nursing facility of Little Flower Manor when they needed more care. The sisters had also been cared for by the Hospice of Sacred Heart.

Some of her other favorite things include Tony’s Pizza and the movie “Dazed and Confused.” Her best friends are her cheer teammates. During high school, Alex’s biggest challenge was maintaining her good grades. If she could do it all over again, she would like to be on the morning announcements. In the future, she plans to go to college and looks forward to making decisions on her own. • Angelo Lussi, born on June 9, 1994, lives in Pittston with his idols, John and Linda Lussi (his parents).

His favorite teachers are Mr. McGarry and Mrs. Distasio, favorite food is his mom’s grilled cheese, favorite movie is “Stepbrothers” and favorite celebrity is Mila Kunis. If he could start over, Angelo says the things he would do differently would include waking up earlier and studying more.

Tiana is a member of the soccer team, Key Club and Stand Tall Club. You can find her with her twin sister, Taylor, and best friends Matt Pierantoni, Emily Seamen, Paul Wasta and Antonette Sciapli. Her favorite foods are grapes and pizza, favorite movie is “Remember the Titans” and favorite song is “Miss Me” by Drake.
