School boards are reorganized By MEGAN SCHNEIDER For The Dallas Post

Both the Dallas and LakeLehman School Boards held reorganization meetings last week. DALLAS At the Dallas School Board reorganization meeting on Dec. 3, Dr. Richard Coslett was elected president, Dr. Bruce Goeringer vice president and Colleen Slocum assistant secretary. Larry Schuler was appointed representative to the West Side Career and Technology Center Joint Operating committee. The board also heard another report from Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates Architects on a feasibility study being conducted to determine what steps should be taken at Dallas Elementary School. The school, built in 1972, was not intended as a permanent building and has developed recurring problems over the years. The study is intended to give the board a full set of options, including renovations, partial replacement or full replacement. Another report is expected at the board’s regular meeting on Dec. 10. LAKE-LEHMAN Mark Kornoski was reelected president by one vote over Andrew Salko. Walter Glogowski was named first vice president and Dr. Kevin Carey was elected second vice president. The

treasurer’s position was left to be filled at a later meeting. The following committee chairpersons were appointed: curriculum and instruction; David Paulauskas, athletic and activities; James Welby, buildings and grounds; Richard Bombick, transportation; Karen Masters, support services; Glogowski, finance. Masters was appointed as representative to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association and Glogowski was named as an alternate. Paulauskas was appointed to the Joint Operating Committee that runs the West Side Career and Technology Center for a term that runs to 2015. The JOC is comprised of members from the five school boards of member districts at West Side CTC. The board moved regular meetings from the third Monday of each month to the second Monday of each mother. Welby asked if three meetings scheduled at the elementary schools were necessary. He said the facilities are not the same and that it proves an inconvenience to set up. Superintendent James McGovern said the meetings are held at that location to showcase the schools to board members and make it easer for nearby residents to attend a meeting. No final decision was made. The next meeting of the Lake-Lehman School Board will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec. 17 in the high school library.

Contest is extended PennDOT has extended the deadline for elementary school students to submit entries for its aviation art contest until Wednesday, Dec. 19, recognizing that Hurricane Sandy resulted in school closings in some regions of the state.

al shopping lists during the annual holiday shopping event at the school on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Youngsters and their parents perused the various wares and vendors at the event, which included items for everyone in one’s family, from brother to godmother. Olivia Maniskas, 9, of Dallas, was browsing for gifts for her family members with the help of mom, Kelly. “I’m trying to find something for my mom and dad and my sister Rachel,” she said. Kelly Maniskas said the event is a “great idea” because children get to be more independent and financially responsible while having fun shopping. “She has money she earns doing things around the house,” Kelly said about her daughter. “She’s on a budget.” Kelly said the shopping event, which features gifts at kid-

friendly prices, helps out when children want to start getting involved with Christmas and other holiday shopping. “This is great because they don’t have to spend a lot of money,” said Kelly. “Santa’s already spending a lot of money.” The Robbins family, of Dallas, worked its way around the room, checking out the neat little knick-knacks the in-school store had to offer. “We had a basketball game and decided to stop in to see what we could buy for family,” said mom Pam about the shopping checklists of her daughters, 9-year-old Brooke and 7-year-old Madison. “We like to support the school and see the money going back into the school,” Pam said. With most items selling for under $10, Pam likes the affordabil-

ity of the event while also giving her daughters some freedom in choosing who gets what during the holidays. “Mom’s got all the money today,” she said. “But it’s nice to have this. If kids go to the mall to buy gifts, they’d be spending a fortune.” Kelly Salitis had her hands full while following her 8-year-old daughter, Abby, around the cafeteria. The mother-daughter duo from Dallas said they had “between 10 and 11” people to buy for at the event, and the several bags in Kelly’s hands meant they were off to a good start Saturday morning.

Kelly likes the idea of teaching children about the value of money at an early age because it gives them a sense of accomplishment and ownership. “The earlier you can teach them, the better,” she said. “She’ll sweep the floor and earn money for that. It gives them a sense of importance, that they’re buying for others and they did it themselves.” Abby was quietly browsing the shelves, trying to keep her gift list as secret as possible, though she did hint at one gift recipient’s favorite sports team. “I’m looking for something (with) Steelers (on it),” she said.

Life in these parts is easy, beautiful, entertaining By CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK Dallas Post Correspondent

The living is easy, beautiful and entertaining at Newberry Estate, an owner-managed condominium complex in Dallas, originally called Hillcrest Orchard Farm and later renamed Stone Acres by the Newberry family. Cathy Anselmi moved there in 1989. A single mother with two young daughters, she found it a safe community with turn-key 24-hour security, where “neighbors watch out for one another,” she says. “My front steps were swept and the school bus picked up the girls.” Anselmi lives in the Hillside section in a condominium-like building, one of five cluster groups on the 87-acre property. She calls it the “So-Ho section of Newberry” as the units in Hillside are more casual than some in the other clusters. Today, Molly Noone, a single mother of four, picks up her 9year-old son, Joshua at the bus stop and enjoys the community for its convenience. Joshua doesn’t have to shovel the snow and gets more time to play with friends in the heated-community pool or with tennis balls. The complex has tennis courts, a par-3 golf course and three pools. Noone likes that the site is “nestled in the woods and not plopped out in the middle of a field somewhere.” Fred Halsey, current president of the homeowners association, especially enjoys watching the youngest children learn to play golf. “I watched a small boy place three balls in a row on a green. He came back to his golf bag, which was the same size as he was, and he fell over trying to pick up the bag.” Originally, there were few buildings and no sports activities at Newberry Estate and the amenities were reserved for only one family. The property belonged to William Frederick Newberry, who in 1911, built the large stone estate house at the entrance called the Highlands, now used for catering. Then, it was Newberry’s summer home and a working farm with apple orchards, blueberries and chickens, all of which were sold weekly from a farm truck in Wilkes-Barre. There were Macs and an apple called Delight, recalls Nelson Ashburner, of Kunkle, whose father Ralph was the farm manager at Newberry his entire life. In the 1950s, the younger Ashburner helped his father pick apples, spray and store them in the apple cold cellar which is still on the property. His father cared for the grounds and all the farm animals, including parrots and exotic fish the Newberry family had, taking the fish out of the summer pools and putting them in the greenhouse pool for the winter. The Ashburners worked for W.F. Newberry, an executive with Woolworth’s, a chain of over 500

department stores nationally founded by Newberry’s brother, John Joshua Newberry. In 1972, the farm was developed into a five-cluster gated community by the Troup family, working with architect Peter Bohlin, who designed the grounds. At first the project “was a bust,” according to George Spohrer, who moved there in 1973. The Troup family used the money it earned selling the Atlas Chain Co, in West Pittston (around $3 or $4 million) to buy the estate. First Eastern Bank, a mortgage holder, foreclosed on the property and it changed hands two more times until a group of homeowners put together a “kitty,” according to Spohrer. The community became a big success after the Agnes Flood when people like Spohrer wanted to leave the Wyoming Valley. Spohrer calls Bohlin, who later designed a home for Microsoft founder Bill Gates in Oregon, “a visionary.” Bohlin’s design for Newberry has preserved the natural landscape, the formal lawns and apple orchards on the farm. A stream winds its way through the estate and forms a chain of three ponds over which the golf course is laid. The stream attracts wild life, ducks, game and a resident herd of deer. Iris Levy and her husband, Dick, came to live in Orchard West 10 years ago. “Living here is so very scenic and beautiful. There is a feeling of tranquility and beauty here,” she says. This most agreeable atmosphere prompted Levy to help her friend, Marilyn Gregorski, make Newberry her home as well. Selling her home was the last thing on Gregorski’s mind until a young couple made an offer on it and Levy helped her move to Newberry. “She said, ‘I’m going to arrange this for you and you will like it.’ I’ve been very happy since. It’s expansive and beautiful and we all watch out for one another,” says Gregorski. Pat Rosenthal says the same thing about the community. “People here are very friendly and you can count on them to help.” There are pool parties in the summer and the residents can participate in all the activities as part of their ownership. The public can join and enjoy the pool, tennis and golf facilities through the Newberry Estate Country Club which offers supervised summer programs for children, social events for parents and families, and golf and tennis lessons.

Their experiences lead to first-ever stutter group By MEGAN SCHNEIDER For The Dallas Post

Misericordia University student Terrance Murgallis is helping to make a difference for a group that can often be overlooked. Murgallis, along with fellow student Marybeth Rissinger, have founded the first stuttering support group in Northeast Pennsylvania. All three students are sophomores in Speech and Language Pathology at Misericordia. And all three stutter. The support group will be the first of its kind in the area and is unique compared to traditional stuttering support groups because Murgallis’s group will not be run by doctors or professionals attempting to teach techniques. This group will be

open forum, public and will offer a chance for participants to help one another. Murgallis, 19, has stuttered his entire life. He attended speech therapy in preschool, but never realized anything was wrong until he started elementary school. He remembers being mocked for his stutter while in first and second grades. He recalls children imitating him when they would say his name. As he got older, though, the bullying eased up. “Every once in a while in high school, a kid would be a jerk,” said Murgallis. “But it didn’t bother me by then.” In March 2010, Murgallis visited the speech therapy program at Misericordia. There, he met with instructor Dr. Glen Tellis, a specialist in stuttering. It was after that meeting Murgallis knew what he would do after grad-

uation. But first, he had a personal challenge to face. He was chosen as one of nine valedictorians for the Meyers High School Class of 2011. This meant a public speech. He admitted being scared, but added, “I owed it to myself.” After learning specialized techniques from Dr. Tellis, Murgallis decided to take the speech a step further by volunteering to deliver the opening speech and led the class of 2011 in the Pledge of Allegiance. Murgallis practiced techniques to stop himself from

blocking, the long pause that stutterers develop as a defense to keep themselves from repeating syllables or sounds. Instead of repeating, which in Murgallis’s case was mocked by his peers, stutterers teach themselves to block the sound. After jumping that hurdle, he learned breathing techniques that help to open the vocal folds, making it easier to produce the desired sound. Murgallis admitted that the air flow techniques are difficult because a stutterer really needs to think about their breathing, but they did help him.

“I’ve been fortunate to make a lot of progress,” he said. Murgallis wrote his valedictorian speech about his struggles with stuttering. His favorite phrase from his speech was, “Anyone can do anything if they persevere.” He remembers the crowd applauding. “It gave me a lot of confidence and a lot of vindication,” he admitted. After graduation, Murgallis had faith in himself and in his ability. But it wasn’t until starting college that he met another person with a stutter. That is why the students formed the stuttering support group. Initially, it was just for students, but the founders decided to open the meetings to anyone who stutters. “It’s important for you to know you’re not alone,” Mur-

gallis said. “That’s how I felt before coming here.” “I feel for them because most people take being able to speak coherently for granted,” he added. Murgallis is now a sophomore at Misericordia and knows he is on the right path. “I’ve always wanted to help;” he said. “It would be rewarding to help people talk.”

Sister Therese Marie Marques will receive the McAuley Medal

career as a teacher of adult students at Misericordia and also taught at Catholic high schools in Wilkes-Barre, Plymouth and Freeland. After determining that her personal mission was to “help those most in need,” she returned to her homeland of Guyana in 1966 as a teacher at the high school she attended, St. Joseph High School in Georgetown. She was named principal in 1971 and served

in that capacity until 1984. While in Guyana, she was appointed a council member and subsequently took on the leadership role as coordinator of the Community of the Sisters of Mercy, Guyana. She later was named chief executive officer of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, also in Georgetown. She returned to the Wyoming Valley in 1989 where she took the position of educational coordinator and later director of educational and library services at the Sisters of Mercy-run Mercy Hospital, Wilkes-Barre. She was named executive director of the Catherine McAuley Center, Scranton, in 1995, upon the retirement of founder, Sister Anne Paye, RSM. The Catherine McAuley Center was established in Scranton in 1984 as a single guest home for women and children. Under the leadership of Sister Marques, it has expanded and today it is recognized as a vital resource for the community, providing seven safe and drug-free facilities for single, low-income women and women with children in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties. There is also a transitional living center – the Catherine McAuley House – in Plymouth.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It was British biologist and author Richard Dawkins who made the following sage observation: “When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong.” • If you’re like 20 percent of American women, you think your feet are too big. • Did you ever wonder why we say, “I smell a rat” when we sense that something is amiss? The phrase dates back to a time before effective means of pest control, when it was not uncommon for a home to be infested by rodents. If a rat died inside a wall, the residents wouldn’t be aware of it until the smell of the decaying body became noticeable. • If you’d like to have a festive New Year’s Eve but don’t want to deal with the crowds in New York City for the iconic ball drop, consider heading to Mount Olive, N.C. Every year the town hosts a celebration in which a 3-foot lighted pickle is dropped into a barrel at midnight. • Ancient Romans believed that a sneeze was the body’s way of expelling evil spirits that caused disease. Thus, if one tried to suppress a sneeze, it was regarded as an invitation to illness and death. • The 14-foot model of the Starship Enterprise that was used during shooting of the original “Star Trek” series is now displayed in the Smithsonian.

Inside game will be the key By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

The Lake-Lehman and Dallas High School boys basketball teams will look inside often this season while trying to accomplish their goals. Lake-Lehman will try to continue an upswing in the program while Dallas hopes to avoid slipping from the championship level. Pete Borum, a 6-foot-6 junior, returns at Lake-Lehman where he will combine with three-year starter Jared James to lead the Black Knights. After losing the entire starting lineup from a championship squad, Dallas will build around 6foot-6 sophomore forward/center Allen Fell while hoping for contributions from promising 6foot-7 freshman Sukhmail Mathon. “We have two really high potential young players,” said Dallas coach Doug Miller. Both teams have moved up a division with realignment of the Wyoming Valley Conference. The climb from Division 3 to Division 2 is long overdue at Lake-Lehman, which posted its

Both teams have moved up a division with realignment of the Wyoming Valley Conference. first winning record in 20 years last season. “We’re happy to be up there,” Lake-Lehman coach Brian Cutter said of the move to a division with Holy Redeemer, GAR, Nanticoke and Wyoming Area. “We’re a Triple-A school when it comes to basketball, so that’s where we belong. “We belong playing those schools. We’ve been down in Division 3 because our program’s been down for so long.” The progress has been steady under Cutter. “When I took over three years ago, the cupboard was pretty bare,” he said, “but I knew with the kids coming up that we’d get better. “We won five, then nine, then12 and we expect to win more.” James, a starter on the wing for each of the past two years, and Borum, who moved into the starting lineup part way through his freshman season and was an all-star and the team scoring leader as a sophomore, are important to

those expectations. “We have some quick guards, but we’re also pretty big underneath with Pete inside,” Cutter said. “We can push the ball, but we can also go down low and play a

slow-down game and pound the ball inside.” James is likely to be the only senior starter. “We’re going to start a pretty young lineup,” Cutter said, “but

we’ll have a lot of experience backing up the kids who are starting.” Seniors Bill Hillman, a guard, and forwards Tom Boyle, Josh Davenport and Cody Spriggs all

have some experience. Junior Adam Dizbon, the team’s most effective 3-point shooter, takes over as starting See BOYS, Page 10

The Dallas and Lake-Lehman girls basketball teams are moving up for the 2012-13 season. Dallas moves from Division 2 to Division 1 in the realigned Wyoming Valley Conference. Lake-Lehman moves from WVC Division 3 to Division 2 and also bumps up an enrollment classification to join Dallas in Class AAA for Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association District 2 playoff competition. Both teams will have key returning players leading the way as they try to continue success while competing on the higher levels.

DALLAS LOSES STARTING LINEUP Dallas lost the starting lineup from a team that went 15-9, including winning the second-half and all-season titles in Division 2. Sophomore forward/center Fell, junior guard Matt Seba and sophomore guard Matt Ross were three of the team’s top four players off the bench last season. “Allen is going to be the focal point,” Miller said of Fell, one of his captains. “We want most of our offense to go through him.” Junior guard Chad DeBona is trying to work his way into the lineup. Mathon could often join Fell on the inside. “He’s going a play a good amount of minutes for a freshman,” said Miller, who is beginning his second season as Dallas coach. “He’s very tall, very long with a good wing span and, for his size, he’s very coordinated. “He’s developing still, but he’s going to be a very good player.” Guards Kristian Dyrli and John Murray are the only seniors on the roster. Miller said both will be in the rotation of substitutes, along with junior guard Stephen Wempa and sophomore forward Omar Nimjeh. Dallas will be part of Division 1 with likely contenders Hazleton Area, Crestwood and Wyoming Valley West as well as Pittston Area, Coughlin, Berwick and Tunkhannock.

Holy Redeemer High School students will present a choral concert, “Sounds of the Season,” at 3 p.m. today, Dec. 9 in the school’s McCarthy Auditorium.

Featured will be the Combined Chorus, Royal Singers, Handbell Choir, and soloists, under the direction of Ann Manganiello. An audience “Sing-a-Long” will also be included.

Dallas had winning records in each half, then reached the District 2 Class AAA semifinals before having its season end at 14-8 with a two-point loss to eventual champion Honesdale. While Dallas returns its top three players among a large group of experienced players back, Lake-Lehman returns the two other all-stars behind team leader Nikki Sutliff, who graduated. “There are a number of combinations that we’re looking at,” Dallas coach Kelly Johnson said. “I’m kind of excited about it right now because of the depth.” Seniors Ashley Dunbar, Tanner Englehart and Jess Hiscox all return to lead Dallas. Dunbar runs the offense from the point guard position and also led the Lady Mountaineers in scoring last season. Englehart provides an inside presence on a team that may rely on many guards, including Hiscox. “We have six guards who could all be a significant part of the rotation,” Johnson said. “Depending on our needs and our opponent, our lineup will be adjusted. “There will be games when it is three guards and two forwards. There might even be times when it is four guards and one forward.” Junior Sam Missal, a 3-point shooting threat, and sophomore Talia Szatkowski, who joined Dunbar in double figures in scoring in the season-ending loss, are part of the guard combination with Dunbar and Hiscox. Juniors Kaite Comitz and Taylor Kelley, who are among the 10 players with varsity experience, are the other guards. Senior Rachel Olszewski and juniors Maggie Michael and Steph Cybulski are the other experienced forwards. Dallas opens in the Wyoming Valley West Tournament Dec. 8 and 11. SPENCER, SUTTON LEAD LAKE-LEHMAN Lake-Lehman is led by the return of sophomore Cayle Spencer and junior Emily Sutton. Spencer led the team in scoring as a freshman and Sutton was third. “Spencer may see a little more time outside,” Lavan said. “Depending on how things are

going at the point, Sutton could probably handle that. “She’s very tough on the baseline and down low, but we could use her as a taller guard who could see over the defense,” Lavan added. The Lady Knights also return two seniors and two more sophomores who have varsity experience. “We mixed up the lineup a lot early in the season, so some of them got one or two starts,” Lavan said. Senior Jen Konopinski is expected to take over as the point guard. Karen Yamrick is a guard while Bethany Williams and Nicole O’Connor play in the frontcourt. Danae Sutliffe and Lexi Oplinger also earned varsity time last season as freshmen, something guard Julia Eneboe may do this season. Junior Amy Williams also has some limited experience on the varsity level.

The supervisors approved the maintenance fee of $400 per year for the EMA equipment in connection with the Back Mountain Community Partnership. This is a fee that each municipality will pay for

the upkeep of equipment purchased under the Partnership grant. The board also approved the support of the BMCP in the application for the 2012 Gaming Grant for public safety equipment.
