DALLAS TOWNSHIP

Visioning session allows residents a say in future By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider@mydallaspost.com

School or no school? By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider @mydallaspost.com

Superintendents Frank Galicki of the Dallas School District and James McGovern of the Lake-Lehman School District are the men ultimately in charge of how safely students travel to school during inclement weather. When our area saw its first brush with snow of the season this past Tuesday, Lake-Lehman remained on its regular schedule while Dallas called a two-hour delay. That isn’t the way things are normally done. It all comes down to planning and timing.

Residents from Dallas Township and members of the township’s planning board met with Jack Varaly from Varay Associates on Nov. 28 to begin the process of building a comprehensive plan for the township. Varaly was hired by the township to help prepare a plan to map out a vision for the future. The meeting was held to encourage residents to express their concerns and opinions regarding issues of zoning, housing, land use, natural resources and other topics and allow residents to volunteer for ad hoc committees to help gather ideas for the plan. “The most important thing that goes into the plan is identifying the vision of what they want the township to become,” Varaly said about residents. He added that the majority of the township is zoned A1 agricultural and advised that, when committee volunteers consider rezoning, they expect slow but steady growth and not the kind of boom the area has experienced during the last 20 years. Census data for the township is available on the township’s website. Elizabeth Martin, vice chairman of the Dallas Township Board of Supervisors, said she would post more specific information on the jobs of committee members and offer examples of other comprehensive plans so people have a better understanding of the process. “Citizen participation is very important,” said Martin. Carl Kaschenbach asked sev-

eral questions about how the process worked. He also posed a question regarding rezoning and wetlands, expressing a desire to know how accurate area maps are in regard to showing wetlands in the township. After much discussion, it was understood that every property would have to be assessed by a professional to determine exactly where wetlands are located. Kaschenbach said, “We are shooting in the dark a little bit then.” Varaly explained that, regardless of rezoning, safeguards are built into other ordinances that will protect the wetlands not mapped from being built on or destroyed. The township had approximately 10 volunteers for committees during the meeting, including Kaschenbach, Walt Kochen and Mary and Al Rodriguez. Martin expected more volunteers to step forward before the end of the week. Committees will meet approximately once a month but times and dates have not been set. Varaly said the process should take about three months to complete. He clarified that the comprehensive plan does not implement any changes but gives supervisors a direction. Every decision will still have to pass through a public meeting before anything is made official.

HARVEYS LAKE BOROUGH

Community continues to be divided on police station By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider@mydallaspost.com

Once again, the possible move and renovation of the Harveys Lake Police Station was a topic of contention at the borough council’s regular meeting on Nov. 20. Resident Danny Blaine brought up the topic during the public comment portion of the meeting when he presented council with a letter written by resident Ed Williams. The letter was in regard to the homeowners of Marina Pointe. Blaine read part of the letter aloud, stating that Marina Point residents are against moving the police station to Little League Road. “It doesn’t seem logical to me and I disagree 100%,” said Blaine of the proposed move. Guy Giordano said he saw estimates for the renovation of the current station that the borough received last week and thought

they were wrong. Judi Williams Spagnuolo then asked council about floor plans available for public inspection on a back table in the room. The floor plans are for the renovation of the recreation center on Little League Road. Spagnuolo checked with council to be sure original bids for both buildings had come in over the allotted grant money. She raised the question about cost and whether that would result in a tax increase. “As a taxpayer, I can’t afford to pay,” she said. Mayor Clarence Hogan stated the floor plans on display were drawn prior to receiving estimates from contractors and they were only on display because the police station issue was a topic on the agenda. This sparked debate in the meeting room that continued for approximately 15 minutes. Council President Larry Radel defended the proposed moving of the police station while council

members Michell’e Boice and Thomas Kehler tried to explain that estimates for the current station are exaggerated and include an addition that is “unnecessary.” Radel defended the addition in the estimates, saying engineers are trying to make the square footage of the buildings the same for comparison purposes. Radel said, “The reality is we don’t know how much it’s going to cost.” Kehler added that if the estimates of the current station are taken into consideration, the cost of renovation is about $87,000, almost the same as renovating the recreation center. During the debate, resident Carol Culver scolded Council President Radel for “rolling his eyes” while other council members were presenting their viewpoints. Council member Amy Williams reported the borough is preparing to send certified letters to all residents who have

Jay McCarroll lends hand with fashion show at MU By MEGAN SCHNEIDER mschneider@mydallaspost.com

One word - fabulous. First, it describes the host, Jay McCarroll, a Lehman native and winner of the first-ever season of “Project Runway,” who became a successful fashion designer. Second, it describes the event, a holiday-themed fashion show at Misericordia University on Saturday, Dec. 8. The designs will be holiday party themed and will feature McCarroll merchandise available at local shops and boutiques. Most importantly, it describes the coordinator of the event, Morgan Harding, of Exeter, a junior communications major at Misericordia. Harding organized the fashion show as part of her on-campus internship, but her passion for fashion started long before the

I F YO U G O …

The event will feature a runway show featuring nine shops and boutiques, booths for over a dozen vendors, a Jay McCarroll trunk show and much more. Brown Barn Café will sell food and Ah!some Chocolates will offer desserts and take orders for holiday baskets. Beverages were donated by Metz in Dallas. The show is from 3 to 7 p.m. There is a $5 cover. Reservations can be made by emailing holidaychicpeek@gmail.com with your name and the number of people in your party.

fall semester. It all began with an outfit - a sundress, a cashmere cardigan and a pair of brown cowboy boots - Harding wore to school, garnering both positive and negative feedback. In May 2011, she started a blog about fashion, entitled “Cashmere and Cowboy Boots.” Blogging was a way for Harding to express her interest in fashion and maintain her writing ability. “I always knew I was going to be a communications major,” she said. “I just didn’t know what I was going to do in comm.” What Harding didn’t expect was that people would notice her blog, especially people in-

volved in the fashion industry. Through her writing, she connected with brands and designers and was invited to New York Fashion Week not once, but twice. In September, Harding met with one designer and saw the new line-up close after the runway show in New York. “When I got to college, I had this whole plan of what I wanted to do with my life and that all went out the window,” she said. When she started school, Harding intended to be a broadcast journalist. She soon found she didn’t enjoy the broadcasting aspect of communications as much as the writing so she became involved with the school

newspaper, the Highlander, of which she serves as print editor, and the Public Relations Student Society of America on campus. Harding needed a project to complete her semester so she recruited the help of the student public relations group, of which she is also the president and got assistance from fellow student Ellen Hoffman, editor of the Highlander. The last piece to the stylish puzzle was fashion lover and university first lady Tina MacDowell and her cause, the Beautification Project at Misericordia University, MacDowell’s personal quest to continue to make the campus appealing. Knowing she needed some kind of draw for the show, Harding emailed McCarroll who bought into the project. According to McCarroll’s business manager, it is a chance for the fashion designer to come home for the weekend to support an event in his hometown. “In the past,” Harding said, “you had these people who came to the event and didn’t know where the clothing was from.” In this year’s show, models

will walk the runway in a design. While they show off holiday party wear, representatives from participating retailers will introduce the clothing, talk about who designed it and where the audience can find it. The models will then remain in the clothing

and proceed to the party, giving guests a chance to mingle, see the clothing and designs up close and visit vendor booths. “The fact that one of my finals is a fashion show,” Harding said, “is the highlight is my semester.”

Library citrus sale is favorite scene One of the favorite scenes around the Back Mountain Memorial Library is the delivery of fresh fruit for the annual citrus sale. Fruit previously ordered may be picked up from 3 to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7 or from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 8. Amnesty Week Another popular time at the library is the annual Amnesty Week. This year it will be held from Monday, Dec. 10 to Saturday, Dec. 15. Any current fines for items returned late during this week will be waived. Meet Tux And one of the library’s most highly-anticipated family events is the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Reading night. Come and celebrate the holidays with Mike O’Brien, Tux and star players from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in a lively reading program. All ages are welcome to attend at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18 in the Children’s Room. Space is limited so families are asked to call the library at 675-1182 to reserve seats. The players will talk to the families about the importance of reading, about being a team player and about their careers as professional hockey players. Tux will then entertain the children with his antics as the players read holiday books to the children. Bring your questions, along with your memorabilia to be signed and get ready to have some fun with the Penguins. Holiday Open House Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Back Mountain Memorial Library’s Annual Holiday Open House. This year the Open House will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 19 and Thursday, Dec. 20. Stop by the library on those days and enjoy light refreshments and soft instrumental holiday music. Friends extend thanks The Friends of the Back Mountain Memorial Library would like to thank everyone who supported their recent fundraiser at Leggio’s restaurant in Dallas. This event was well attended and very successful, largely due to the outstanding staff and service provided by this restaurant. Our sincere thanks to the owners of Leggio’s for supporting this important library fundraiser.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel • On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment and bringing an end to the era of national prohibition of alcohol in America. Utah became the 36th state to ratify the amendment, achieving the requisite three-fourths majority of states’ approval. • On Dec. 3, 1947, Marlon Brando’s famous cry of “STELLA!” first booms across a Broadway stage, electrifying the audience at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre during the first-ever performance of Tennessee Williams’ play “A Streetcar Named Desire.” • On Dec. 9, 1950, Harry Gold - who had confessed to serving as a courier of top-secret information on the atomic bomb - is sentenced to 30 years in jail for his crime. Gold implicated his brother-in-law and sister, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were later convicted and executed for espionage. • On Dec. 5, 1964, the first Medal of Honor awarded for action in Vietnam is presented to Army Special Forces Capt. Roger Donlon of New York for his heroic action at Nam Dong. Donlon was shot in the stomach during an attack by hordes of Viet Cong. He stuffed a handkerchief into the wound, cinched up his belt and kept fighting. • On Dec. 8, 1982, “Sophie’s Choice,” starring actress Meryl Streep as a Holocaust survivor, opens in theaters. The “choice” in the film’s title refers to a terrible decision Streep’s character is forced to make, about which of her two children will live or die while in a concentration camp.

Well over 20 years ago, Tom and June Kukuchkas in Tunkhannock enjoyed creating a large display of holiday lights with the help of their three young boys, Kevin, Eric and Jeff. This was no ordinary display. A large train of lights built by homemade construction and also a Peace on Earth sign were two of the largest features. Lights in every tree and on every shrub were a must. This display was always a community favorite and easily viewed by a then much more lightly traveled Route 29 just outside downtown Tunkhannock.

SOCCER and CAMARADERIE Annual Dallas High School Alumni Soccer Game gets bigger and better every year. By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Johnny Sheehan’s roots as goalkeeper made him comfortable directing the teammates in front of him. When it came time for a group of players from different eras to quickly form into a team for the Dallas High School Alumni Game in bitter, windy conditions on a Saturday morning two days after Thanksgiving, it was Sheehan who took charge. Sheehan positioned his teammates, noting that the presence of three goalies might be useful against younger opponents. His light-hearted approach – “hey, are you guys any good?” he shouted to the high school players as they lined up – helped set the tone for the game’s mood. Sheehan, who settled into the stopper position while brothers Mike and Tim Raub shared goalie duties, was the most vocal player on the field, clearly having fun now that he’s become part of an annual gathering that has lasted about a quarter of a century. While he took a break on the sideline, however, Sheehan finished talking about the game by

pointing out an important serious side to the day. The game began under John McCafferty, a native of Scotland who started the Dallas High School program in 1981 and is one of those most responsible for the Back Mountain being at the center of soccer’s development in northeastern Pennsylvania. “He’s pretty much the reason these guys in blue have the chance they do every year,” Sheehan said of McCafferty, who immediately turned the Mountaineers into a championship program that reached the state final and two other state quarterfinals under his guidance. “The roots in the program started with John and the life lessons he taught every one of us, even after he finished coaching.” It was McCafferty’s illness and death in November 2010 that sparked a boost in interest in the Alumni Game, including making

it a mandatory part of Sheehan’s plans. Attendance spiked in the past two years, leading to one of the two adjustments that booster club vice president and alumni game committee chair Kathy Murray had to make in this year’s t-shirt orders.

Murray increased the order of light and dark blue t-shirts, used as jerseys for the game, to 60. She also adjusted e the order for XXL, which allowed for necessary use over sweatshirts and/or for adjustments to the effects of age. Murray said alumni not part of the extensive contact list the club

this too damn long and nothing gets done,” said Miller. Blaine added that the borough has the funds available in its restricted cash account to fix plumbing and water issues. The council passed Boice’s proposal. Giordano suggested running a pipe under the road to connect the police station to the borough building. Borough Secretary Susan Sutton stated that the borough officials looked into having this done before and that the cost was very high.

that decision was not made until approximately 6:20 a.m. McGovern said that some Lake-Lehman students get picked up by 6 a.m. For his district, the decision to have a two-hour delay or a cancellation needs to be made no later than 5:45 a.m. before buses are on the road. Because snow didn’t start to fall until later in the morning on Tuesday, McGovern felt it was safer to get students to school before the roads got worse, and then wait it out until the end of the day when roads were clear. “The only time it gets tricky is when the private schools make a different decision,” said McGovern. West Side Career and Technical Center also had a two-hour delay on Tuesday. “This is one of the first times we have had a situation like this arise,” he said. Because of the communication between districts, schools are usually on

the same schedule but on Tuesday, Lake-Lehman students who attend West Side CTC were given a study hall period until buses were up and running. Before decisions are made, both Galicki and McGovern contact the director of the bus companies serving their respective districts. For Dallas School District, that means calling Jeff Emanuel, whom

Galicki relies on to give him an evaluation of roads in the district. If Emanuel feels the roads are slick, he will offer an opinion on whether the district should have a delay or a closing. If officials change the status from a delay to a closing, they make that decision by 8:30 a.m. before buses are on the road. In other weather situations, like when an overnight storm is

Scharff is also on their side despite being a Lake-Lehman graduate who went against some of the players in the early years of the rivalry between the two schools. The high school team forms the opposition, with a few recent graduates and players who will join the program in the near future rounding out the roster. Sheehan makes it part of his holiday weekend. He returns

from his home in State College to visit family and long-time friend Matt Lipo for Thanksgiving. There is a Friday night reunion for the soccer alumni on the same weekend each year, followed by the Saturday morning game. “We reminisce for a while on Friday night, then come out here and have a good run out for two hours,” Raub said. Players and parents from the program continue that reminiscing as they arrive minutes before the start. The game, despite being informal without officials, is well played. The alumni even fought off

whatever rust was in its collective game to score first about 10 minutes into this year’s contest. “We’ve got to get them early while we still have energy,” Raub said. Then, we bunker down and hide, put everyone back and let the young kids just play around with it.” When that doesn’t work, there is another way for the alumni to come out winners on their annual trip down Memory Lane. “We go to a shootout at the end every year,” Raub said. “We just say ‘the alumni win.’ Whether it’s legal or not, we always win.”

anticipated, decisions are made a little differently. “We like to make a decision by 10 p.m. when there is a storm pending so it can make the 10 or 11 p.m. news,” Galicki said. In the case of a cancellation, every district handles make-up days differently. Galicki has found that working snow days into the end of the year works best for his district. He noted that some districts will take days out of extended holidays such as Easter break but because families tend to make travel plans during those times, attendance is poor. If there is a delay, the school day counts as a full day. McGovern said that, in delay scenarios, elementary classes determine their schedule by room while students in upper grades follow a condensed schedule. High school students have each of their scheduled classes, although they are shortened. Both superintendents stressed their main concern when making these decisions is the safety of the students, personnel and drivers.
