Tom Hillman helps Scouts with camp experience Dallas man wants to make sure Boy Scouts get chance to make memories like he did when he was younger. By CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK Dallas Post Correspondent

Bob McGuire, den master of Cub Scout Pack 241, Lehman, was never more surprised the day he received a phone call “completely out of the blue” from a former den master, whom he had never met. Tom Hillman, of Dallas, told McGuire he had been looking at the newspaper and saw a picture of a Scout troop. The image fondly reminded Hillman of his three years as the Scoutmaster of Pack 241 and of the summer camping trips he and his son Bill (now a senior at Lake-Lehman High School) enjoyed together at Camp Acahela in Blakeslee. Hillman came from a Scouting family - his father and grandfather were both Eagle Scouts. He thinks that everything about the Scouting process prepares and leads the boys to camping. While many of the programs and activities can be done indoors, getting the Scouts outside and sleeping in a tent should be the end result. Just to “go away” and work together as a group are

other good things about camping, Hillman says. McGuire told Hillman that, sadly, only 11 Scouts from Pack 241 had participated in summer camp the previous year. McGuire and Hillman felt that the $250 camp fee might make the cost of summer camp an expensive option for an average family. Because Hillman does not want any Scout to not be CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK/ FOR THE DALLAS POST able to go to camp for lack of funds, he was willing to pay 50 Boy Scouts Damian Napierkowski, left, and his brother, Blaise, of Cub Scout Pack 241, Lehman, raise their hands because they have percent of the cost of summer spent summer camping time at Camp Acahela, thanks to the generosity of Tom Hillman, a former pack leader who has contributed to the summer Scout camping experience. Hillman was presented a plaque by the Scout group in recognition of his contribution.

Christian athletes connect off field Glitches increase LEHMAN TOWNSHIP

phone calls to 911

By SARAH HITE Dallas Post Correspondent

Student athletes at Lake-Lehman Junior/Senior High School have a new way to connect off the court – and on a different level. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes group meets twice a month at the high school to discuss Lake-Lehman sports, socialize with friends and study topics form the Bible that students get to choose. Speakers are also brought into the meetings to discuss relevant topics of the students’ choosing, from dating to how to be a better Christian. The group got its start this year by former high school social studies teacher Chip Sorber and current physical education teacher Mike Leskowsky. “My first experience of Christianity was in college,” said Sorber. “I didn’t go to church when I was younger, and I had a curiosity about it. I got involved in a Fellowship of Christian Athletes group. I didn’t take to Christianity right away and I’m still working on it.” Sorber started a smaller, less official group with the same premise when he coached baseball at Lake-Lehman. “It was a small group, about five to nine kids,” he said. “This year I thought I’d open it up to the whole school. The administration was really supportive of it.” Leskowsky, whose family members are active in the group, wanted to be part of the fellowship group to help students deal with a changing society. “I think we’re going to try to reverse the trend, the (negative) direction society is going,” he said. “This gives an opportunity to be more open to faith and it gives me something to talk about with the kids.” Sorber believes the legal removal of Christianity within schools had led to negative consequences, including the inability of the U.S. government to pay its debt to other countries. “We were a Christian nation at the start,” he said. “…People

Accidental “butt dials” and occasional glitches in the telephone system contributed to an increase in 911 calls, said Lehman Township Police Chief Howard Kocher during the board of supervisors meeting on Jan. 7. Kocher said emergency personnel must respond to each call, even if it is a hang-up, adding that last year emergency personnel responded to 108 hang-up calls and 123 burglar alarms, most of which were also false alarms.

They collected canned goods and nonperishable food for the Pastor’s Pantry in Noxen. The Pastor’s Pantry is only open three hours a week but manages to serve between 25 and 65 families a month. Pantry organizer Pearl Race said the pantry depends on food drives promoted by local service groups. “We think about Christian values and this time of year you want to help the poor and the

“I believe in Christian values and I think kids need them,” said Swanson. “I think they are really lacking those values. People don’t go to church to learn the Bible anymore.” Shoshana Mahoney, 16, of See FIELD, Page 10

Sweet Valley woman loves challenge Danielle Yurko, who is expecting twins, just months away from second degree.

Two Republican members of the Pennsylvania State Legislature from the Back Mountain who work closely together in Harrisburg are State Senator Lisa Baker and State Representative Karen Boback. Senator Baker represents the 20th Senatorial District that includes parts of Luzerne, Monroe, Susquehanna Counties and all of Pike, Wayne and Wyoming Counties. Representative Boback serves the 117th Legislative District that includes parts of Columbia, Luzene and Wyoming Counties. Pictured at the State Capitol on the convening day of the 2013-14 legislative session, Jan.1 are, from left, Representative Karen Boback, Harveys Lake; Reverend Charles Gommer, Dallas; and Senator Lisa Baker, Dallas.

It is the love of a challenge that has drawn Misericordia senior Danielle Monelli Yurko ’06,’13, of Sweet Valley, toward a career in biochemistry research. The 30-year-old, who is expecting twins in July, is also just months away from finishing her second undergraduate degree at Misericordia. Her perseverance and dedication to her new field have already brought her honors. Yurko is the first Misericordia student to present at an annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), the largest gathering of experts in that particular field of science. The 52nd annual ASCB meeting was held in San Francisco, Calif., in December and drew more than 6,000 participants, including esteemed researchers from around the world. Accompanied to San Francisco by her research mentor Angela Asirvatham, Ph.D., associate professor of biology, Yurko was one of 300 scientists to present at the undergraduate session and one of 3,000 presenters at the graduate, postdoctoral and faculty level. Dr. Asirvatham also presented at the event, as she has for the past seven years. The research the pair is doing is ultimately dedicated to finding a faster way to repair nerve

cells damaged by spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. Yurko admits her career path has been much like a science experiment, full of stops and starts and changed directions. She earned her first undergraduate degree in communications at Misericordia in 2006 as a nontraditional student, taking classes at night and on weekends

while working full time. An interest in medicine and health care – and in particular the new physician assistant program – drew her back to campus in 2009. Yet, it was in her first organic chemistry class where she found a passion for lab experimentation. Her interest in medical research led her to Dr. Asirvath-

am, whose doctoral research involved autoimmune disease. The two have been working on a particular portion of Schwann cell research since January 2012. Yurko hopes to earn a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular genetics and plans a career in biomedical research specializing in autoimmune and multi-drug resistant diseases.

The Lettermen, from left, Tony Butala, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton, will perform their timeless love songs at 7:30 p.m. on Frid, March 22 in Misericordia University’s Lemmond Theater at Walsh Hall.

The Lettermen come to Lemmond Theater The timeless songs of The Lettermen will fill the air of Lemmond Theater at Walsh Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 22 when the group performs many of its timeless hits, such as “Put Your Head On My Shoulder,” “When I Fall In Love,” “Traces/Memories,’’ “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,’’ “Hurt So Bad” and “Theme From A Summer Place.’’ The group’s signature sound of romantic standards scored more than 25 hit singles in the 1960s and 70s. At the same time, The Lettermen toured with George Burns, Jack Benny, Bob Hope and Bill Cosby; performed on bills with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Jimmy Durante, Debbie Reynolds, Sam Cooke and Sammy Davis, Jr. The group also appeared several times on television’s “The Ed Sullivan Show” and was a regular on “The Red Skelton

Show” and “The Hollywood Palace.” Overall, The Lettermen have made more than 200 appearances on television shows, such as Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand” series and various talk shows with Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin, Jack Paar, Milton Berle and many others. During their more than 50year career, The Lettermen have averaged at least one album a year. The trio has gone through a few personnel changes over the years. Today, the band is comprised of Tony Butala, an original and founding member, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton. Tickets for the show are available exclusively through the MU Box Office at 674-6719. Premium House Center tickets are $35 per person and general admission seats are $20 per person. For more information, call 674-6400.

Rep. Boback hosts vets assistance hours Jan. 15

Rep. Karen Boback (R-Luzerne/Wyoming/Columbia) will host her veterans’ assistance hours from10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at her Sweet Valley district office, 5929 Main Road, located off Route 118.

Documentary offers insight and emotion By ALAN STOUT Special to The Dallas Post

“Walking Into The Light At Gettysburg,” a new documentary produced by Dr. Anthony J. Mussari, of Dallas, offers more than just a remarkable history lesson on what remains the most intense military battle on American soil. It also offers a lesson in self-discovery. The film is part of Mussari’s ongoing “Face of America” project, which he has developed with his wife, Kitch. For “Walking Into The Light At Gettysburg,” the two bring 10

students from the North Plainfield High School in New Jersey to the Gettysburg National Military Park. And not only does the group find the visit to be educational and enlightening, but in some ways, life-altering. And why wouldn’t it be? Standing on the grounds and amid the monuments where there were more than 51,000 casualties and where more than 7,000 fell to their death, the students – and those who view the film – are provided with not only staggering statistics on the battle of Gettysburg, but also poignant human stories that made the battle even more heart wrenching.

P R O P E R T Y T R A N S F E R S 464,000 The following Back Mountain real estate transactions were recorded in the Luzerne County Office of the Recorder of Deeds for the week of Dec. 31, 2012 to Jan. 4, 2013: David E. and Hollie A.

Valick, Lehman Township; $14,100 Michael G. and Shannon Dolon Panisak to Aaron Mishoe, 25 Marina Drive, Harveys Lake Borough; $198,000 Hi-Pines Inc. to Marguerite E.

The group also receives “visits,” courtesy of gifted actors, from General Robert E. Lee and Abraham Lincoln, who offer thoughtful perspective on the Civil War. Throughout the documentary, Mussari - who was recently invited to show the film at the Gettysburg National Military Park continuously paints the perfect backdrop to the tour. Quotes from Lincoln and Lee frequently appear on the screen, as do timepiece photographs, paintings and video re-enactments. There is also appropriate music and, most importantly, appropriate sentiment. When the students offer

thoughts on their time at Gettysburg during the film’s final moments, important lessons are revealed. And as one young teen recites a poem she had written inspired by her visit, there are also a few tears. Perhaps that is the greatest triumph of “Walking Into The Light At Gettysburg.” It teaches. It inspires. It captures the emotions one might feel while standing at one of America’s most hallowed grounds exactly 150 years after it became such a landmark. For schools unable to take such a memorable field trip, the film in many ways, can take them there.

New Year Sales now going on at library


A new year has begun and the Back Mountain Memorial Library is starting it off with new books, new ideas and, of course, New Year sales The library’s sale of vintage hand-blown glass ornaments and Plasticville U.S. A. houses (in original unglued condition) and accessories was very popular during the past holiday season. Now, any of these remaining items are being sold at half price. There is still a good selection to choose from and many of these items can also be used as winter birthday/special occasion gifts. FAFSA workshop The library will hold a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) workshop at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 14. The workshop will offer instructions and tips to file the FAFSA form for college loans, scholarships and grants. It is free to attend, but pre-registration is required by calling the library at 675-1182. Auction planning begins It’s hard to believe, but planning for the library’s annual auction has begun. This year’s Back Mountain Memorial Auction will be held on July 11, 12, 13 and 14. It’s never too early to volunteer for this fun opportunity to make new friends and be part of a long-standing community event. Chair people and workers are needed for several individual booths. Volunteers are needed to help sort donated items on a weekday morning from 10 a.m. to noon. Call the library at 675-1182 if you are interested in becoming an auction volunteer. Meetings are held once a month. Half price sale The library’s Slightly Read Bookshop is currently offering its children’s books at half price and, beginning on Jan.15, all large coffeetable sized books will also be half price. Story hours Registration for the Winter/Spring Story hours will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It was American humorist and columnist Josh Billings who made the following sage observation: “Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does.” • You think there are a lot of lawsuits being heard in the courts these days? Statistics show that half of the suits filed never even make it to court. • In France in the 1700s, capital punishment was not uncommon, and criminals thus condemned were decapitated by the country’s Chief Executioner. This position was hereditary, which posed a problem when, in 1726, the holder of that title, Charles-Jean-Baptiste Sanson, suffered an early death, leaving his 7-year-old son, Charles, to take up the grisly duties. It was obvious to all that a child could never wield the heavy axe required for the decapitations, so it was deemed acceptable for a helper to actually perform the executions. Only the official office-holder could put the official seal on the act, however, so the poor boy had to witness every one. It wasn’t until the ripe old age of 12 that he began to take over the full duties of the office. • When famed inventor Alexander Graham Bell died in 1922, he was dictating a memo. His final words were, “So little done, so much to do!” • If you’re a fan of big brass, you might want to head to Millersville, Pa., in May. Every year during that month, the town celebrates International Tuba Day, with some 50 tuba players on hand to serenade the crowd. • There’s been much public conversation about the growing girth of Americans in recent decades. It’s not just people who are gaining weight, though; between 1996 and 2006, the average motor vehicle made in the U.S. gained 500 pounds.

During a recent snowstorm at Harveys Lake, Pat Giordano watched her backyard bird feeders in amazement as 10 different varieties of birds arrived to replenish themselves. Among those that appeared were a female cardinal, male cardinal, starling, junco, woodpecker, goldfinch, blue jay, house finch and a titmouse. Although not shown in the photo, morning doves and sparrows also made an appearance.

Stella Cummings, Lake Street, Dallas, has been awarded a portable radio by the sponsors of the QUIZ KIDS program, for a question used on the program on December 27th. Her question, read by Joe Kelly, was: “Stella Cummings of Dallas, Penna., says that song writers are always wondering about something or other. ‘I’ll whistle some of this wonderment to you, and you tell me in each case what it is the song writer was wondering about.” The first song was “I Wonder What’s Become of Sally” by Ager, but none of the kids was able to name it. Among the many new members sworn into office this week when the General Assembly convened in Harrisburg was Harold E. Flack of Saginaw Avenue, Dallas, who is representative in the Legislature from the Sixth District. Information for “Only Yesterday” is taken from back copies of the Dallas Post which is 121 years old. The information here is printed exactly as it originally appeared.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel • On Jan. 15, 1951, Ilse Koch, wife of the commandant of the Buchenwald concentration camp, is sentenced to life imprisonment in a court in West Germany for her extraordinary sadism. The “Witch of Buchenwald” collected lampshades, book covers and gloves made from the skin of tattooed camp prisoners.

• On Jan. 17, 1966, an American B-52 bomber collides with a KC-135 jet tanker over Spain’s Mediterranean coast, dropping three 70-kiloton hydrogen bombs near the town of Palomares and another into the sea. • On Jan. 20, 1980, President Jimmy Carter proposes that the 1980 Summer Olympics be moved from the planned host city, Moscow, if the Soviet Union failed to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan within a month.

Marvess Kosiak, left, of Lackawanna Trail faces off against Connor Martinez, of Dallas, in the 170 lb. match during a 2012 Class 2A District 2 dual wrestling meet at Lake-Lehman High School.

He goes up against the big boys By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Connor Martinez is challenged each day he goes to Dallas wrestling practice. When he is not going head-tohead against Kris Roccograndi, a three-year starter with the best record on the Mountaineers, Martinez works out with the team’s bigger wrestlers. The competition against bigger wrestlers keeps Martinez prepared because he generally wrestles at 182 pounds with Roccograndi situated in the 170-pound class. “Connor wrestles up a weight class or two from his actual weight to help the team,” Mountaineers coach Mike Richards said. “He’s a trooper. He’ll do anything he can to help the team. “He’s a tough kid. He’ll go out and wrestle at 182, even though

he’s at 165 or 166.” Martinez does more than just occupy that higher weight class. He has won more than two-thirds of his bouts, including all at last week’s Wyoming Valley Conference Wrestling Tournament where he shut out Lake-Lehman’s Brady Butler, 8-0, in the final for the title. Martinez joined Roccograndi and defending district and regional champion Dominic DeGraba, who each pulled out twopoint decisions, to give Dallas its first three champions in the fouryear history of the event. Logan Brace (160) and Ryan Monk (285) also made the final to help the Mountaineers place fourth out of 14 teams. Butler was one of two LakeLehman finalists. Unbeaten Austin Harry won the title at 132 pounds to help the Black Knights place fifth in the team standings. The tournament title was the

first by Martinez as a high school wrestler. Martinez tries to see the advantages he has while going against bigger opponents, concentrating on using his edge in quickness rather than dwelling on the difference in weight. “I think that the way I wrestle I do better against heavier kids,” he said. “My heart’s in it. I’m not going to give up until the end.” Richards and Martinez were confident in his chances to reach the final, based on his second seed. Once in the final, Martinez put together an impressive perform-

ance for a major decision. “I knew that was going to be my toughest match,” said Martinez, who reached the Northeast Regional last year as a sophomore by finishing third in the District 2 Class AA Tournament. “I was just going to wrestle the same as any other match. I tried to stick to my game plan.” By joining DeGraba and Roccograndi at the top of the podium, Martinez helped Dallas match Wyoming Valley West as the only schools with three champions in the tournament, which was conducted Jan. 4-5 at Lake-Lehman.

The elementary wrestling season is in full swing and there are several Dallas student/athletes competing for the Rock Solid Wrestling Club. Rock Solid Wrestling is headed up by Rocky Bonomo, Lake- Lehman state champ, three-time NCAA All-American at Bloomsburg University and Lock Haven head wrestling coach. The Dallas boys competing this year are Kyle McAndrew, Steven Newell, Lucas Shultz, Lukas Volpetti, Mitchell Rome, Colby Kleintob, Ryan Cooper, Noah Cooper, Miles Tirpak and Lucas Tirpak. Volpetti has placed third in the Wyalusing tournament and second in the Defender Classic at Warrior Run. Shultz was champion at the Western Wayne tournament at 4-0, champion at the Defender Classic at Warrior Run at 4-0, pinning his way to the title and third at the Bellefonte top 100. Newell placed second at the Bellefonte top100 and went 5-0 at The Nazareth Duals with five

pins, competing for the Rock Solid dual team. The Cooper brothers and the Tirpak brothers are wrestling in the Penn League. Strong season continues Kyle McAndrew and Shawn Henniger competed with the Rock Solid dual team and helped them take fifth place out of 16 teams at the Blue Mountain Duals. Steven Newell, Lukas Volpetti


and Lucas Shultz all wrestled in the Selinsgrove Myrtle Ray Memorial Tournament. Volpetti brought home a third place finish with one pin and a decision. Newell was champion with two pins along the way. Shultz was also champion with one pin and three decisions, including an 8-6 victory over a MAWA eastern national qualifier from Williams Valley.

there were at least four levels of participation at Camp Acahela, a Boy Scout camp in Blakeslee, including a Parent and Pal weekend and a day camp for mothers attending the camp. Hillman was completely invested in the idea by that time and was still willing to assist entire families to enjoy the camping experience. Last April, Hillman stood before the Scouts and parents of

Pack 241 and said, “You don’t know me. As a parent, I still look back happily at Scouting and I want to make sure you and your kids go to summer camp.” This year, Cub Scout Pack 241 sent about 40 of its Scouts and their parents to summer camp at Acehela. Blaise Napierkowski, his brother, Damian, and their mother, Christine, from Jack-

son Twp., enjoyed the experience. “Swimming in the cool pool, campfires and the water rockets,” Blaise said, recalling highlights of a 3-day trip to the camp with his Mom and brother. Next year would be the year for an all-week trip to the camp for him, he said. The pack awarded Hillman an appreciation plaque for his generosity.

I like the atmosphere and talking to the same people week to week.” Mahoney likes to reflect on how her faith carries her through different situations. “You think you have a lot of troubles and bad situations, but if you put God into it, you know it will get better,” she said. “It comes out good in the end.” Mahoney said now she can connect with students her own age on the topics she finds most important. “If people ask me about (my faith), I’ll tell them, but a lot of people aren’t involved,” she said. “But I’m not afraid to talk about it.” Rachel Leskowsky, 14, of Lehman, said her father initially got her involved in the group, but
