Sheep business a ‘hobby’ for local woman A Lori and Warren Raker, Ransom Township, Clarks Summit are shown in their antique covered wagon.

By Joan Mead-Matsui Abington Journal Correspondent

s winter approaches and the temperatures drop, you may have already worn your favorite wool sweater or donned a hat, scarf or mittens. “Sheep are as warm as toast,” said Lori Raker, Ransom Township sheep farmer, referring to a sheep’s thick coat. Lori often gets three to five pounds of wool from one of her

sheep, depending on its size. In her flock, for example, a “ram” male sheep can weigh as much as 200 pounds and a “ewe” female sheep about 130 pounds. “A guy comes down every May. He shears them all, 70 in one day. He’ll do both flocks in one day and I have to be sure I have them in (inside prior to shearing) so they’re dry. If it’s going

to rain, (for at least two days) I have to have them inside for several days,” she said. Prior to shearing Lori worms the sheep and trims their feet, and then, “He shears them all and I let them out.” After the sheep are sheared, Lori keeps the wool in 8-foot burlap bags, and at the end of June

The South Abington Park is set to close for most of the summer of 2013 because of two sewer projects, but township supervisors plan to seize the opportunity and revamp the park. South Abington supervisors said work on the sewage system will include a township project to replace two pump stations with a more costeffective gravity line. The Abington Wastewater Authority will also be working in the area during the same period. The park will serve as a staging area for the projects, which will take place during most of June, July and August. The supervisors said that with all of the activity and heavy equipment involved with the sewer upgrades, the park will be unsafe for use. The work will begin behind South Abington Elementary School and continue through the park, progressing beyond See Park, Page 3

CLARKS SUMMIT- Vice President Warren Acker reported that the Facilities Committee met to discuss the possibility of installing a turf field for soccer and field hockey games as well as football practices. “Every spring and fall we seem to have problems with wet fields,” Acker said. “Every year, we talk about redoing the middle of the track. People have asked about and recommended the idea of a turf field, and I wonder if it’s time for us to at least look at the size of the project.” In other business: • Student Representative Rebecca Falk announced the senior pasta dinner will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at the high school from 5 to 8 p.m. The cost is $8 for adults and $6 for children. She added that Comets Madness, a winter sports Pep Rally has a tentative date of Friday, Nov. 30. The orchestra concert will be held on Dec. 2 and there will be a Holiday Concert on Dec. 14, when all three of the music departments (orchestra, chorus and band) perform together. • Abington Heights Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Mahon noted that while discussions have taken place between the district and South Abington Twp. Supervisor David O’Neill, about a sewer project that would involve the installation of a sewer line behind South Abington Elementary School, no final decision has been made.

Over the years, he amassed a large collection of tales from his adventures. “I’d always written notes to myself,” he said. “Just to have an idea what happened what year. As the years go by, everything kind of blurs together and eventually the notes became a little more than notes.” He started turning his notes into narratives that he typed and printed each year. “With the advent of the home computer, it See Season, Page 12

LIGHTS

SANTA

Continued from Page 1

Residents are asked to leave their porch lights on until Santa has made his visit. For safety, animals should be tied. In the event of snow, Santa would appreciate clean sidewalks. Santa will make most of his visits between approximately 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. “They’re have been some ups and downs, but overall it’s stayed consistent,” Borek said. According to Santa Project Coordinator Heather Kuzma, around 450 children participate each year. Those interested in participating in the program should contact Kuzma by December 6 at 570.587.5062. “Santa wants everyone to know that it’s a community wide undertaking and the need for community volunteers is apparent,” Borek said. “We get a limited number of volunteers, but it’s a big project and we definitely need the help,” Borek said. “If you have the desire to help Santa, and want to bring the true spirit of Christmas to the children please contact the Lions Club.” According to Kuzma, approximately 10 people are needed each night. On the busiest nights, 15 to 18 people may be needed. “Each night, Santa has a very busy schedule and therefore a lot of help is needed,” Borek said. “Anyone in the community that wants to support the project should contact Kuzma,” Borek said. “Any corporations, business owners, or residents who want to contribute to this large community undertaking may send contributions to Abington Lions: P.O. Box 273 Clarks Summit, PA 18411.” Anyone who has a desire to learn more about the Lions International Association and is considering membership can contact Borek at 587.2925.

PARK

the park as far as the intersection of Venard and Willow Brook roads. The Abington Heights School district requested the work be done when class is not in session, leaving the township with no choice but to schedule the work for summer. Supervisor Mark Dougherty said the park’s closing presented an opportunity for the township to make improvements, including repaving the basketball courts and replacing old playground equipment. “There are a lot of things we could do with that three months if it was closed that we wouldn’t be able to do normally because of the usage,” Dougherty said. “We could put the park ahead 10 years. We have the money to do it, so we should just do it.” The project will be paid for out of a special fund set aside for parks and recreation. The borough levies a tax on residents each year for this fund. The supervisors also discussed the possibility of partially underwriting the project with a grant from the state’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The supervisors put in a request to the township’s Parks and Recreation committee to begin planning for the park’s face-lift. In other business, the supervisors discussed the possibility of purchasing a power generator for the township building. The building was without power for nearly 24 hours, the longest outage in its history, during Hurricane Sandy. “The police had a very difficult time doing their function, and it just highlighted our need for a generator,” Supervisor Giles Stanton said. “We’re looking into the engineering and purchase of a generator.” The supervisors are still exploring the pros and cons of various types of generators, taking into consideration factors such as power, cost, fuel type and portability.

Holiday cheer

Event to benefit Leadership Lackawanna BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Anyone planning to attend the Leadership Lackawanna “Mix Mingle and Jingle” fundraising event at the Electric City Trolley Museum, Scranton, Dec.12, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. will have an opportunity to get into the holiday spirit amidst the trolley museum’s “Annual Festival of Trees,” and food tables showcasing a variety of foods from various outlets. The museum will be decorated in traditional holiday decor. “The Electric City Trolley Museum has been a great partner for this and other events hosted by Leadership Lackawanna. The open floor plan, and flexibility of space is a great match for our event. It also provides a great backdrop during the holiday season thanks to the Festival of Trees,” said Michelle Williams, Leadership Lackawanna, and director, Grant Support Services at Lackawanna College. Last year, approximately 150 people attended the event. Proceeds from the fundraising event will benefit Leadership Lackawanna, a nonprofit organization that works to provide leadership opportunities to local teens, professionals, and executives through the Leadership Lackawanna Core Program, Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, and the Leadership Lackawanna Executive Program. Williams said,

“For more than 30 years, Leadership Lackawanna has provided community members and professionals with leadership training, networking and learning opportunities through its nine-month core program. In addition, the program works with local nonprofits to assist with special events and community service projects...” She added that Leadership Lackawanna program has helped establish a number of well-known community events, programs and facilities, such as Dress for Success Lackawanna, The Restoration of Hanlon’s Grove at Nay Aug Park, The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour, and the GVTA Business Plan Competition. Tickets for the event, which includes fare, beer, wine, and live instrumental holiday music, are $15 for Leadership Lackawanna Alumni and Friends Association members, and $20 for the general public, and may be purchased by contacting Karen at 570.342.771, or at LeadershipLackawanna.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.

SHEEP

Continued from Page 1

most years, she takes the wool to a “wool pool.” “The guys from out west will come in, the wool is loaded in their trucks and then they’ll weigh and grade it and pay me for it.” The Koerner Farm is a 100acre pastoral wonderland, where sheep nibble on hay, goats congregate on the hillside, water fowl swim in the pond, chickens make a familiar noise, and two very large pigs eagerly await their meal. Passers-by can often see the sheep year round on the bucolic and pristine land located just off the beaten path from heavily traveled Newton-Ransom Boulevard. Lori Raker inherited a small flock of sheep from her father, Roger Koerner, who acquired his sheep from a co-worker at the nearby paper mill where he worked, but the farm has been in the family for many years. Lori’s mother, Joan, said she moved there in 1956 and the farm has been home to many farm animals throughout the years. Lori, who refers to the sheep business as a “hobby,” took over sheep farming in 1990, and receives help from her niece, Christine Koerner, and Brian Oney, who lend a hand. Currently, she has two flocks, with as many as 70 sheep. “I like the sheep,” she said. “Everybody thinks sheep are stupid. I don’t think so. I think they’re interesting. Why do I stay in the sheep business? I don’t know. I like to be different.” Husband, Warren, a “wannabe” farmer, said of his wife’s hobby, “Whatever makes her happy is fine with me. I don’t get involved at all now because of my age. I was a lot younger then (when he helped more on the farm).” Her hobby is seasonal, with mid-November set aside as breeding (lambing) season, “so babies (lambs) are born by Easter,” said Lori. Sheep gestation time is five months. She noted. “You can do it (lambing) anytime you want, but I try to get done with lambing by May because the sheer guy is coming, and plus my hay season will start. I don’t want lambing and hay seasons to come together.” How many lambs can she expect from a ewe? Lori’s answer is, “The most I’ve had from one mother is three.” A typical day on the farm includes making sure the sheep and other animals are fed and have water. “The sheep need to be fed with bales of hay, but during lambing season, that’s a different story. You have to be sure the little ones are getting milk,” she said, and for the first three days she feeds her lambs milk rich in colostrum that she purchases at Manning’s Farm Dairy. Generally speaking, Lori said sheep are skittish by nature. “Anybody new comes around and they’re gone. They don’t like too much change and they don’t want you in the pen that much. They’re calm, but they can be skittish,” and particularly so, when compared to goats. She added, “Goats are on earth to have fun in my opinion. Goats are devils. They just want to play on the hay bale, get their heads stuck in fences. She has from time to time, loaned her sheep to churches for nativity scenes or to schools for educational purposes. “People have asked to borrow sheep around Christmas for nativities. If people want them, I’ll let them take them as long as they bring them back.”

If you can’t think of anything to be thankful for this holiday season, perhaps you should just be thankful you aren’t a turkey. Which birds on this postcard do you think are better off: the two at left, or the one at far right?

Sweet samples BY ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER lbaumeister@theabingtonjournal.com

Everything Natural in Clarks Summit treated its customers to a “Thanksgiving Sampler” Nov. 17 prepared by the shop’s staff. It included turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes. Staff members were also on hand to give healthy Thanksgiving dinner tips. Barbara Cohen, of Scranton, said her number one tip is to “use the best quality ingredients you can get,” such as a turkey with no preservatives and other foods that are nourishing and healthy. Customers who tasted the samplers described the food as “delicious” and “savory.” Those who missed out on the in-store samples can still get a taste by trying out these sweet potato recipes from the Everything Natural staff: Sweet Potato Yum Yum, a recipe from Kelly Baker: Ingredients (all organic ingredients recommended): 3 cans sweet potato puree or mashed sweet potatoes; 1/2 teaspoon sea salt; 1/2 cup

Community Life Support (CLS), Clarks Summit, provides professional patient care and ambulance transportation services to Lackawanna County, Wyoming County, and the surrounding areas. But in the wake of a natural disaster or terrorist attack, members of CLS are also prepared to deploy to wherever they are needed as part of the Pennsylvania EMS Strike Team, organized in response to a federal mandate after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Carmen Passaniti, CLS operations manager, said, “Fortunately, since that time, we have had no terrorist activity that required a Strike Team deployment.” Passaniti and Eugene Lesneski organized a recent strike team of local volunteers from CLS that deployed to storm ravaged New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy. Nathan Truitt, CLS paramedic supervisor, served as team leader in New Jersey. . He left NEPA Oct. 30 and returned Nov. 5. He and his crew were based in Egg Harbor Township, N.J. and mostly operated in the greater Atlantic City area. ” According to Truitt, the strike teams are designed for preparation for the disaster and to operate in its aftermath.. He noted each EMS region has the opportunity to form strike teams that will deploy when Pa. deploys, and all of the regions work together bringing different resources into the mix for the Pa strike team. The Northeast is Region 5 and includes Bradford, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Lackawanna, and Luzerne counties. The PA Dept. of Health organizes the team and decides when it deploys and the Northeast EMS region organizes the local teams. “I’m not sure that every state is as well organized as Penn-

sylvania…” Truitt said. “We are organized and jumped right on it and got our act together early.” Initially, Pennsylvania’s strike team consisted of 35 ambulances, “and they asked for a second wave of another 35...,” said Truitt, who was there with the first 35 for seven days. “In the second 35 we had another crew that Community Life Support sent, three days behind my deployment. They were there for a week, and now they’ve asked for a third wave. I don’t think we’re going to be involved in that one.” Kyle Durko, Carbondale, and Brian Gogas, Justus, were part of the crew. In the initial deployment, Truitt and Chris Woolfolk, Hanover Township, were each in charge of a crew. Kevin Howard, Factoryville, third team leader, functioned as a liaison between the crews and the command. Their standard shift was 12 hours; not counting the travel time to their assignment, which could be up to one and a half hours away, with the crews expected to be on location at 6 a.m. Following his return from New Jersey, Truitt said this of the teams, “I worked with a great group of people who really made me proud. At times we were working in Ocean County and for one deployment, one of the guys from NJ said, ‘Any job I get to hand out, I know I can give it to you because the Pennsylvania guys are getting it done.’ That makes me feel good.”

Freshman on fast track to success C.G. resident well-rounded BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

Zoe Haggerty, 14, a freshman at Holy Cross High School, is quite accomplished for her age. She has completed two Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Courses with A’s. She took Cryptology at Dickinson College in the summer of 2011, and Algebra and Problem Solving this past summer online. According to Haggerty, the Cryptology course really was challenging and helped her learn the basics for algebra. She added that the Algebra and Problem Solving course helped a lot with learning slope and will help a lot this year. She advanced to states in cross country and finished with a time of 21:39 to finish in 71st place. She was one of only 38 freshmen that qualified in her category. “I really didn’t think I would qualify, but the coaches kept saying we could do it,” Haggerty said. “The course was really muddy at districts and it was a tough race. I thought I ran the best I could. I didn’t find out that I had qualified until 10 minutes after the race. I was really excited. She described her time at states as an “overall great experience.” “The race itself was great and there were so many people,” she said. She credits head coach Charlie Orlando and the rest of the staff for aiding in her improvement as a runner. “He gives good tips and always encourages us,” she said. “After races, he tells us our strengths and points out what we need to work on.” Haggerty first started running competitively in fifth grade at Our Lady of Peace, but always had a love for running. “When I was young, I really liked to run,” she said. “When it was mentioned at my elementary school I decided to join the team.” Haggerty also enjoys running with her dad, Dan, and friend, Elda Hricko. The Clarks Green resident enjoys the relaxation that results from going for a run, and always likes to stay in shape.

According to Mahon, the district has posted for a new longterm substitute guidance counselor. • The board also voted to accept the resignation of Nurse Assistant Megan Terpak. They accepted the ap-

“It really clears my mind,” she said. “I don’t feel stressed after a good run.” Haggerty excels at piano, having performed at the famous Carnegie Hall. She was one of a few performers that scored high enough during an audition at Marywood University to make the cut. “It was definitely exciting,” she said of playing at the famous venue. Haggerty has been playing the piano for about five years and has studied under the direction of Cathy Shefski. “She really got me interested in piano and now I really enjoy playing,” Haggerty said. “I like the exercises we work on to get the timing and rhythm dynamics really clear.” Haggerty is also a great student. She received the Holy Cross Sancta Crux Award (a four-year scholarship) and the Elizabeth Ann Seton Award for the Diocese of Scranton. Haggerty believes her desire to expand her scope of knowledge has contributed to her success in the classroom. “I really like learning new things and I enjoy doing well,” she said. Haggerty is also a member of the pro-life club and plans on participating in track and field. With the money that would have gone toward paying her high school tuition, the Haggerty family is sending a little girl to school in Uganda. Zoe’s father, Dan, a professor at the University of Scranton, will travel to visit the school in January 2013. “The girl’s name is Joyce and she writes letters thanking us for the opportunity,” Haggerty said. “She is being raised by a single mother, along with her sister, and the past few years have been rather difficult for them. “It makes me feel so happy to help her. I felt really touched.” While it may seem difficult to find the time and energy required to excel in so many different activities, Haggerty gave a modest answer as to her keys to success. “I just squeeze it all in when I can,” she said. “It’s actually not that hard to do.”

Dalton sculptor exhibits at Allentown museum

William Tersteeg, Red Koi Rising, 2003, clay (raku), copper wiring and tubing. Lent by Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Atkins, Waverly, Pennsylvania.

Artist William Tersteeg’s “Flights of Imagination” showcases 14 hanging and freestanding works that date from the 1980s to 2012. The Allentown Art Museum of the Lehigh Valley is currently presenting the exhibition of the Dalton artist’s ceramic sculptures through Dec. 2. On display in the Museum’s Payne Hurd Gallery, a variety of forms, glazing techniques and use of non-clay materials confirm the connection for the artist between the natural world and studio. Clay, wood, copper and found objects are combined with Plexiglas, porcelain and mirror. Each work includes a surprise element, such as images inside or on the bottom of pieces, which creates different spatial perspectives within a single sculpture. Tersteeg has worked in NEPA for the past 40 years, and recently retired from his position as

Professor of Ceramics at Keystone College, La Plume. His Crystal Earth Studio is in Dalton, where he continues to educate, exhibit, and create. Tersteeg’s work explores both the organic forms of nature and the geometry of curved surfaces. It is often commemorative, inspired by personal experience and assuming elements of spirituality. From clay slab to finished sculpture, the surface of each piece is transformed by decorative scoring and ornamental painting. Enduring up to four different kiln firings and finished with a tricky raku technique, these works of art nonetheless are imbued with an ethereal, dreamlike quality. The layered glazes produce a variety of visual effects, from filmy translucent colors to the deeper jewel tones and shimmering metallics achieved through the raku process.

We could hardly believe the crowd we got last Wednesday night for our local history presentation with Dr. Sheldon Spear. More than 55 folks came out from all over the region to hear Dr. Spear lecture on Northeastern Pennsylvania in American History. Not only did anthracite and the growth of the labor movement in our area really have an impact on the nation, but so did some notable authors including Jason Miller. We look forward to bringing Dr. Spear back next year for another talk on local history. Speaking of history, the Dietrich’s Radio Players will be taking us back to those golden days of radio with a live performance Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. Join us that evening for three short, light-hearted radio comedies all geared for the holidays. They include “Irma Wants Money for Christmas,” “Fibber Paints the Christmas Tree White” and some holiday antics from that great comedic duo Abbott and Costello. The Radio Players led by Hoyt Keiser and Esther Harmatz have been preparing for this upcoming show for over two months. They have developed some old time sound effects for the radio plays and will be incorporating live music into the show. Admission is free and tickets can be reserved by calling 570.996.1500. Following the show there will be a casual reception for the cast and all who attend. The Dietrich Radio Players are sponsored by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. The weekend after the Radio Players performance is Tunkhannock’s Christmas In Our Hometown on Dec. 7 and 8. I just love this town-wide event. Tunkhannock is beautifully decked out for the holidays, our unique shops have a wonderful selection of goods that are perfect for gift giving and there are so many activities for both children and adults to enjoy. From wagon rides to the ice sculptor to carolers, there is something for everyone. At the Dietrich, we will be celebrating Christmas In Our Hometown with free showings of the Henson holiday classic movie Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8 at 5:30 and 7 p.m. These showing are sponsored by Ace-Robbins Heating Oil and Propane and are brought to you in part by the Jim Henson Legacy Foundation. Tickets will be first come, first served. We also will be hosting our annual Holiday Workshop Saturday, Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This event for all ages will help you and yours get into the holiday spirit.

Parenthood, Abington Style with Adriane Heine

Enough love to go around “Mom, you gave K.D. much more attention than you give Pepper!” my nine- year- old daughter Lauren said yesterday. The conversation was about brushing dogs’ teeth and evidently, I was being taken to task for the poor job I was doing with our new dog. Doug and I had adopted K.D. in our mid-20s, before we were married. The reality that she lived 17 years and was around to meet all three of our children exceeded our wildest hopes for her life. Pepper was adopted last spring, just two days after K.D.’s passing, as our family tried to cope with the loss. Now that I have so much more responsibility, I get around to brushing young

Pepper’s teeth just once weekly. I remember to do the chore by keeping the doggie oral hygiene supplies in the same drawer as the baby’s infant nail clippers. When Sarah’s nails reach the point of needing clipping, then Pepper will get her teeth cleaned. “Mom, her teeth are really dirty!” The conversation began. “Yeah, I know,” I replied. “Before you guys were born, I seem to remember that I not only brushed them, but also scraped the tartar off them.” That’s when the comment about the disproportionate amount of attention the two dogs received came. “You are absolutely right, Lauren,” I said. “Back then

dad and I had one dog and no kids. Now we have three kids and two dogs, not to mention a tank full of hermit crabs and the occasional goldfish, frog or lizard you guys bring home.” I sat back and tried to paint the picture for her. “Every day that we weren’t working was all about K.D. We would wake up on a Saturday morning and say, “What should we do with K.D. today?” There was no driving to cheerleading, to Odyssey of the Mind meetings or to Girl Scouts. There were no big school projects to worry about, no 100 Book Challenge, kids needing baths, diaper changes or sleepovers to supervise. “We would take K.D. on a hike up a mountain, to the off-leash dog park or to a sidewalk café where she could lay beside us while we ate. We took her camping, swimming at the beach and over to friends’ houses where she could have a doggie play date. She was all we had, so yes, I scraped the tartar off her teeth.” “Mom, don’t you love Pepper?” Lauren asked. “You took such good care of K.D. and

maybe that’s part of why she lived so long. At least she never got rotten teeth.” I looked at Lauren, sweet, dog-loving, aspiring-vet child that she is, and had a thought. “All right.

She loves the toothpaste.” “And Lauren, there’s something you should know,” I said, taking the time to stop folding laundry and sit down next to her on the couch. “K.D. may have gotten all our attention back when she was the only one, but she was never as happy as when she was surrounded by you guys, her girls.

“Railroads and the American People,” by H. Roger Grant, is a social history of the impact of the railroads during their “golden age,” 1830 – 1930. It is a new addition at the Abington Community Library. Grant explores four fundamental topics: trains and travel, train stations, railroads and community life, and the legacy of railroading in America, illustrating each topic with period photographs and illustrations. He recalls the lasting memories left by train travel, both of luxurious Pullman cars and gritty coal-powered local runs and discusses the important role railroads played for towns and cities across America, not only for access to distant places and markets, but also for the depots that were a focus of community life. More New Adult Non-Fiction “The Saint Who Would be Santa Claus” – by Adam C. English. Weaving together the best historical and archaeological evidence with folklore and legends handed down through generations, the author creates a vivid image of St. Nicholas, a fourth century bishop of Myra. Nicholas, a boy of humble circumstance, grew to become a man revered for his many virtues, chiefly dealing generously with his possessions, but more than that, he was an integral influence in events that would impact the history and development of the Christian church. “What’s a Dog For?” – by John Homans. The author’s adopted shelter dog, a Lab mix named Stella, inspired him to investigate the complex world of dogs, from battles over animal rights and designer breeds to the everevolving nature of the human-canine relationship. From new insights into what makes dogs so appealing to humans to the health benefits associated with owning a dog, Homans investigates why that relationship has evolved and changed in the span of a generation. “Hallucinations” – by Oliver Sacks. Dr. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations reveal about the organization and structure of the human brain, how they have influenced every culture’s folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is a vital part of every human being.

Marley’s Mission taking art entries The Marley’s Mission 2013 Blue Ribbon Gala Committee is currently taking entries for its Second Annual Art Contest and planning its First Friday Showing of the artwork. The theme of this year’s art contest is “What Does a Forever Home Mean to You?” The theme was chosen to reflect the fact that Marley’s Mission has found its “forever” home on a beautiful 32.4-acre property in Newton Township. “We are very excited to see the children’s interpretation of our theme,” said Courtenay Degnon, who, along with Nicole Severs, is co-chairing the Children’s Art Committee. The Art Contest is open to all children in grades K-12 from anywhere in the United States. The deadline for this year’s art contest was extended to Nov. 28.

The artwork will be displayed Dec. 7 at Starbucks in The Mall at Steamtown from 6:30 to 8 p.m. People who come to the First Friday showing can pay $1 to vote for their favorite drawing, and a “People’s Choice Award Winner” will be chosen. All money raised that evening will go directly to Marley’s Mission. Those interested may contact art@marleysmission.com with any questions or visit http:// www.marleysmission.com/gala-art/ for guidelines, entry forms, and examples of last year’s entries. The Marley’s Mission Art Contest began with the Second Annual Gala in 2011. In its first year, more than 100 entries came in from children as far away as Maryland and New York. “We’re hoping to get even more entries this

year,” said Mrs. Severs. Co-chairs of the 2013 Blue Ribbon Gala are Kathleen Bolling Bell and Gretchen Wintermantel. The Blue Ribbon Gala, which is the organization’s major fundraiser, will be held at the Hilton Hotel and Conference Center, 100 Adams Ave. in Scranton, from 6 to 11 p.m. For more information on the Third Annual Blue Ribbon Gala, visit www.marleysmission.com/blue-ribbon-gala-2013/. Marley’s Mission, which is currently based in Lake Ariel, is a non-profit organization that provides Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy at no cost to children and families who have experienced trauma. To date, Marley’s Mission has treated more than 180 children from seven counties since opening its doors in July 2010.

This is only the second time that the show has been free, and the company hopes that people who would not otherwise get a chance to catch a show at the Cultural Center will attend, according to Kathy Emanuelson, executive board member. “We want people to come who can’t usually afford to go to the Cultural Center,” she said. Emanuelson notedthat the company ran into a bit of a shortfall with donations this year. She said opportunities are still available for the public to help. Businesses can become sponsors and members of the public can support the company by purchasing nutcrackers at the show, donating at the door or attending the company’s breakfast with Santa. The breakfast will take place at Posh at the Scranton Club Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The breakfast will also be a meet-and-greet with stars of the show, including Clara and the Magic Dolls. Cost is $35 per adult and $15 for children ages six-15. Chil-

Last summer, Murphy suffered an accident while mowing his lawn. . During his convalescence, he began researching the process of publishing a book and began splicing his stories into a manuscript. “I decided to take the plunge,” he said. The book details episodes, from his first time hunting game as a teen to his own sons’ experiences. Passing on a love of and passion for hunting from one generation to the next is one of the main themes of the book, Murphy said. He tells the story of how his uncle Mike Shillick mentored him. Murphy continues the theme with a few tales about the adventures and misadventures with his sons, E.J. and Mark. “A Pennsylvania Deer Hunter chronicles the most interesting, informative, humorous and poignant stories of his 40 plus years of hunting. From the disappointment of a missed opportunity to the joy of his sons’ first hunts Ed brings the reader on a fascinating trip through the decades,” is featured on the book jacket. “I was very satisfied with the way it turned out,” Murphy said of his literary handiwork. Murphy, who has been hunting for more than 40 years, will host a signing for his book, “A Pennsylvania Deer Hunter,” at Gander Mountain in Dickson City from 1 to 9 p.m., Nov. 21.

Abington countered when Nate Hollander returned the ensuing kickoff 80 yards for a score. “The blocking was absolutely amazing,” Hollander said. “There was a huge hole and I just hit it.” On the next drive, Steeber scored his third touchdown of the game on a 3-yard run.

This was our sixth playoff game for some of these kids in the last three years. That really paid dividends tonight.” Lakeland coach Jeff Wasilchak was only left to lament the chances his team squandered. “Missed opportunities, wasted opportunities,” Wasilchak said. “Don’t take anything away from Wyoming Area, they are a very good football team. They have a lot of playmakers, they are very difficult to defend, their kids play hard and their coaches do a great job.”
