Come to my school, Daddy By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider @mydallaspost.com

One area school is helping to encourage fathers to be active participants in their children’s education. Ross Elementary School in Sweet Valley hosted a Dad’s Day on Nov. 6, a day for fathers to volunteer part of their day to participate in fun activities with their children’s class. Fifty-three fathers took part in the day, some of them multiple times for multiple children. Nick Raczkowski, father to Kalee, Alyssya and Lilian, was in an event for each of his daughters. He played Turkey Tag in the gym with Kaylee’s secondgrade class. The children laughed and pointed as Raczkowski slid under leg bridges

Sanctuary gets new walking paths The proposed Woodland Springs Wildlife Sanctuary in Dallas Borough took a step forward on Saturday, Oct. 20 when volunteer students from Misericordia University helped create treated walking paths through the property.

tromped through the grounds of the almost 3-acre Pineview Road property, preparing the grounds for public visitors. Landowner Andrew Duda hopes to run several fundraisers over the winter months to gain support of local businesses. Duda is planning to install a five or six car parking area near the property entrance on Maplewood Avenue and is hoping to install a gazebo and benches along the paths for visitors. He is seeking volunteers to help with the long-term maintenance of the property. Duda hopes to have the sanctuary open to the public in the early spring. - Megan Schneider

daughter, Jennifer. Ross Elementary Principal Donald James said, “The goal is to get the fathers here and get them comfortable so they come back and volunteer more.” This is the second time the school has held this event and, according to James, it seems to

help as more fathers are getting involved and attending events and PTO meetings. Dads’ Day was organized by teachers Jeremy Williams, Rebecca Keefe, Janna Kabosky, Ray Podskoch and Stacey PelleSee DADDY, Page 10

BORTON FAMILY HOLDS PUMPKIN PARTY

Second row, Ryan Borton, Jacob Chesonis, Madison Federici, Brody Strickland, Hollie Holthaus, Nick Kocher and Adam Borton.

Dr. Richard Coslett opened the Nov. 12 Dallas School Board meeting with a brief speech honoring veterans, including a video montage, a song entitled “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band and a moment of silence for those lost. Following the presentation, Scott Vencil of Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates Architects presented the board with the initial assessment on the structural and engineering aspects of Dallas schools. In his proposal, he included a projection of future student populations up to the year 2020, indicating that CRA has found that, historically, Dallas School District has exceeded population projections of the Department of Education by as much as 6% a year. Vencil presented the analysis, possible problem areas and possible solutions, including the idea of renovating or demolishing the current modular constructions from 1972 at the Dallas Elementary School, providing rough sketches of what the new construction would look like should the district choose to demolish the existing building. Several members of the audience spoke out when Vencil asked if there were any questions, expressing concerns that the proposal sounded expensive and not enough specific information has been provided to the public. Board members indicated they had just received the booklet themselves and would review the information thoroughly and share it with the public in detail at the December meeting. Dallas High School Principal Jeffrey Shaffer then presented new scheduling arrangements he hopes will be in place by January. The schedule will change classes from 72 minutes to 44-minute blocks and the school day from five periods to eight. The Parent Advisory Committee was informed of the changes last week and the information will now be placed online for parent review. Shaffer explained that this scheduling structure, combined with the new cyber program through Seneca Valley, will allow students to take more classes, strengthen their core learning and allow for hybrid schedules. Students can attend the campus for part of the day and take other classes online, such as additional language classes, that may not be offered at the school. Denise DeLuca asked if children would be permitted to take extra classes or additional credits online after attending a full school day. Board member Karen Kyle said that scenario might be possible for advanced students. The board took a 15-minute intermission when President Catherine Wega suddenly became ill . Wega did not rejoin the meeting. According to Superintendent Frank Galicki, Wega experienced issues with low blood sugar, but ws feeling better the next day. The board heard from John Delamater on the status of the school’s lacrosse teams. Delamater asked the board to help with fields and transportation for the upcoming season. He told the See BOARD, Page 10

Eric Pimm and Bob Finnerty race around their practice track in Sweet Valley.

To them, lawnmowers become racing machines By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider@mydallaspost.com

The word racing usually conjures up thoughts of high speeds, adrenaline and wrecks. Two local men are thinking about things a little differently, though. Bob Finnerty, of Sweet Valley, and Eric Pimm, of Dallas, are nationally ranked with the American Racing Mower Association. That’s right, lawnmower racing. “Bob came to me at work one night and said you’ll never guess what I saw on ‘YouTube,’” Pimm said, recalling how Finnerty introduced him to lawnmower racing. “I said, ‘No one around here does that and if you can find someone to teach us to build them, then I’ll do it with you.’ Here I am, eating my words four years later.” Larry Lanning, of Dallas, got the men involved and helped them along until they were ready to race on their own. He even lent them one of his racers until they were able to complete the modifications to their own. The duo’s first-ever race was locally held at the Northeast Fair but Finnerty and Pimm have raced their mowers all over the country, the largest being a race

with more than 3,000 spectators. “You name it, we go to ‘em,” Finnerty said of the events in which the pair has participated. All racers start as a typical riding lawnmower, but after hours of work and custom fabricated and modified parts, they become racers. The mowers are stripped down to the chassis. The hoods, seat and other parts are modified and custom parts such as the axles are added. And, of course, tweaks are made to the engine. “Anything you can do to a car engine, you can do to a lawnmower engine,” said Pimm. There are nine different classes of racers, based on the engine’s horsepower. According to Pimm and Finnerty, a basic racer or Super Stock, starts with 14 HP but after modifications are complete, the racers have approximately 40 HP. It can take about three months to prepare a racer for action. Racers start as young as age 10 so there are always children at events and Pimm said that some

events have even featured a Power Wheels race during intermission for little ones. Three-year old Ashtun Pimm said, “My favorite part is when he (his father Eric) wins and then I get the trophy.” Ashtun said his mommy, Amy races also, and that “it’s really cool.” “It really is a great family atmosphere,” said Pimm, who admits he probably would not have stuck with the sport this long had it not been so family-oriented. His wife raced in her first event on Oct. 21. Ashtun talked about his friends from the races and Pimm said his entire family has made friendships that carry far beyond the track. Finnerty said they know racers from New York and New Jersey whom they spend time with off the track. “There’s a very competitive spirit, but very friendly as well,” he said. Pimm explained there are usually several small accidents during the course of a race day, but

everyone is eager to help out a fellow racer in need of hands or parts whether they are a teammate or the competition. “No one wants to win by having no one to race against,” he said. Pimm suffered an accident during the last race of the season just a few short weeks ago. He was racing on a clay track and was on the inside of a turn. The track was slippery, the racer running on the outside of the turn spun out and Pimm broadsided him, ran up and over the other racer and flipped backwards. The mower he was riding was totaled, suffer-

ing irreparable damage to the frame. Luckily, no one was hurt. Finnerty and Pimm are currently rebuilding four new racers, including a super modified twin mower, for next season. It is the fastest class mower anyone can race and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 mph on a straight-away. The racer is costing Finnerty almost $3,000 to modify and more time than money. Both men said lawnmower racing can be an expensive hobby but provides an opportunity to meet people and make connections that make things cheaper

and easier. “Almost everyone is willing to help you out,” Pimm said. The two are planning a Build Clinic for February or March, open to anyone who wants to learn more about the sport or anyone who wants to learn how to build their own racer. They are hoping more people from the area get interested in lawnmower racing so they can host more events locally. The closest official track is currently in Tower City. Pimm and Finnerty are hoping to increase the size of the local racing chapter to get a track closer to home.

20 YEARS AGO – 1992

The November Art Wall Display at the Back Mountain Memorial Library will feature water color paintings by Janie Kishbaugh, of Shavertown. Janie has always enjoyed painting and began studying art while in college but credits her lessons with area artist Sue Hand for enhancing her technique and artistic skill. She describes her artwork as a way to express her “passion” for all types of animals, farms and old buildings and these subjects are the focus of many of her paintings. However, her newest and special niche is her collection of celestial scene paintings. In these unique pieces, Janie has fashioned names of people with glow-in-the-dark stars and states that these paintings are popular at craft fairs and festivals where she sells her work.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It’s not known who made the following sage observation: “The sharper your words are, the more they’ll hurt if you have to swallow them.” • Those who study such things say that Southerners watch more TV than residents of any other region of the country. • Any given major ballet company will go through about 3,000 pairs of toe shoes every year. Under normal use, one pair will last for about one hour of performing. • If you average out the depth of the world’s seas and the elevation of the land, you’ll find that the ocean is four times as deep as the land is high. • Pierre-Auguste Renoir, one of the leading artists of the Impressionist movement, died in 1919, at the age of 78. His last words were, “What a pity I have to go now just when I was beginning to show promise!” • A male sea otter shows affection by biting his mate’s nose.

The Dallas passing attack was feared from the time football season started. It wasn’t until the Mountaineers developed a running game that the passing game flourished. Dallas started the season with a new offensive and defensive approach under firstyear coach Bob Zaruta. When the Mountaineers lost three games, further alterations were needed. Zaruta altered practice routines, made minor personnel adjustments and often put the Mountaineers in different formations. “We went more from a single-back set to two- and threeback sets,” Zaruta said. “We went with the change in formations to complement the increased emphasis on running.” After the tough start, only one route remained to the postseason. Dallas had to win its final seven regular-season games in order to claim the last spot in the District 2 Class

The Lake-Lehman High School football season had its share of ups and downs. “With a young team, you’re going to go through stages like that,” said Black Knights coach Jerry Gilsky. The high points, including an early four-game winning streak and back-to-back wins late in the season, got the team into the playoffs and provided hope for the future of a program that loses just three offensive and two defensive starters. “I’m not totally content, but I’m happy that we made the playoffs this year,” Gilsky said. “We faced a lot of adversity along the way this year and the kids kept fighting and fighting and made the playoffs.” Lake-Lehman finished 6-5, losing in the District 2 Class AA semifinals to top-seeded Wyoming Area, a team the Black Knights beat,15-14, with a fourthquarter comeback in the third game of the season. The win over Wyoming Area was the high point of a season

that featured an offense producing 42 or more points four times and a defense posting two shutouts. “The kids did well,” Gilsky said. “We struggled a little more toward the second half.” When the Black Knights were at their best, they controlled the ball on the ground. Dustin Jones ran for 1,180 yards and 18 touchdowns on 206

carries. The line clearly played a part in the success with the top four runners all averaging at least 4.7 yards per carry. John Van Scoy ran for 403 yards and six touchdowns on 73 carries while Brady Butler added 279 yards on 50 carries and Tom Donovan had 275 yards. “We put together a nice solid See LEHMAN, Page 10

Galicki said the district would provide at least one field this season and would take measurements to see if any other fields are acceptable for the sport. In other business … • Authorized Diana Alichnie to attend the School-to-Career Connection Integrated Learning Conference in State College Nov. 7-9 at a cost of $680. • Adopted a resolution to pay Metz & Associates LTD $106,581.82 for meals served to the district. • Approved the following field trips through May 2013: WES fifth grade to BizTown, Pittston; DMS select chorus to Little Flower Manor, Luzerne County Courthouse, Wyoming Valley Mall and Meadows Manor for holiday performances;

a 51-6 rout of rival Lake-Lehman. Along the way, Dallas was often dominant, posting shutouts of Pittston Area, Hazleton Area and Tunkhannock. Zaruta said the ingredients for that success existed at the beginning, but the coaches and players needed to learn how to win together. The Mountaineers wound up looking much different than the unit outscored by a combined 106-35 in the first three games against Wyoming Valley West, Abington Heights and Berwick. “We installed a new offense and new defense and it takes some time for that to start to gel,” Zaruta said. “You think you’re doing OK as you go through your summer practices. But until you get into competition, you really don’t know. “It took us three games to put that together and start looking

for ways to improve. You put those things together and you add the fact that we started off with some very strong opponents.” Veteran quarterback Ryan Zapoticky eventually led Wyoming Valley Conference Class AAA quarterbacks in passing, going 89-for-162 for 1,439 yards and 19 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He also ran for 494 yards and five touchdowns. Kris Roccograndi helped in that process, rushing for 879 yards and 12 touchdowns while finishing as one of four receivers in double figures in catches. The two helped the Mountaineers finish 7-4, including last weekend’s 28-7 loss at topseeded Berwick in the district semifinals. Jason Simonovich caught 26 passes for 565 yards and eight touchdowns while Darik Johnson caught 24 passes for 401 yards and five scores while Ryan Kozloski caught 15 for 185 yards and three scores. Kozloski represented the

type of player Zaruta said he will continue to seek to add to the program. A varsity wrestler and track and field athlete with a background in soccer, Kozloski did not play football until his senior year. He started as a slot receiver, as a cornerback who intercepted two passes and as the conference’s most productive kicker with three field goals and 30 extra points. “He came on as an impact player,” said Zaruta, who follows the school’s other sports teams and hopes to make his program attractive to more athletes. “He was a big part of our success.” Zaruta said the Mountaineers have a strong group of seniors to replace, but have many experienced players among those who will form next year’s senior class. In addition to the sophomores who will also return to the program, Zaruta said a large group from the freshman team should increase the roster size.

inated with last weekend’s 49-14 loss to Wyoming Area. The team has made the playoffs in two of three seasons under Gilsky, but lost in the first round each time. Getting over the first-round playoff hump is one goal on Gilsky’s mind as he hopes to use the veteran base to build a stronger team for next season.

“This was something we hope to build on next year and do a little bit more,” he said. “We have to get better at throwing the ball. Teams did load up the box on us in the second half of the year. We need to be able to open it up a little bit more.” Finding a way to do so may help the Black Knights reduce their down times in the future.
