DALLAS SCHOOL DISTRICT

BMT Baseball wants to tear down old school Little League organization looking to expand areas of play for youngsters. By GERI GIBBONS Dallas Post Correspondent and DOTTY MARTIN dmartin@mydallaspost.com

Attorney David Selingo, representing Back Mountain Baseball, proposed to the Dallas School Board at the school board’s regular meeting on Jan. 14 that the Little League association demolish the

“old Dallas Township school” at a cost of $150,000. In return, the baseball organization would gain the right to use the property, which would continue to be owned by the district, for a period of 20 years. Selingo described it as a “win, win, win” situation, which would benefit the school, participants and the community. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the board will confer with its solicitor Ben Jones, who was not at the meeting, and would discuss the matter further at a future meeting.

Steve Skammer, president of Back Mountain Baseball, said the organization is looking for a way to add fields to its ever-expanding program. He said the proposed idea offers the school board a buy-out after 10 years. Steve Skammer, president of Back Mountain Baseball, said the organization is looking for a way to add fields to its ever-expanding program. He said the proposed idea offers the school board a buyout after 10 years. The proposal would not only need approval from the school board but would also require the

baseball organization to raise the estimated $150,000 it would cost to demolish the school building. “We would need to secure funds to do that,” Skammer said. “We would attempt to secure donations from outside parties.” He added that Back Mountain Baseball would also invest financially in the project.

Skammer said that, during a recent work session, school board members were concerned that, if Back Mountain Little League leases the property on which the school building currently sits, would other organizations have access to the property. The baseball president said the school board was assured that organizations such as junior football, soccer and cheerleading would continue to be granted access to the property. Also at the meeting, the board approved a resolution capping the district’s public school tax in-

crease for the upcoming year at 2%, in compliance with the annual index established by the Department of Education, with Maureen Matiska dissenting. “I would just like to be clearer in regard to what cuts might need to be made to meet this budget goal,” said Matiska. The final budget is required to be passed before the end of June, 2013. Wendy Barberio, whose three children attend Dallas schools, voiced concerns regarding the seSee SCHOOL, Page 10

DALLAS BOROUGH

Hearing brings out concerned area residents By SUSAN DENNEY Dallas Post Correspondent

At a hearing at Misericordia University on Jan.16, interested and concerned residents questioned Verizon employees closely about the proposed cell phone tower construction at the Twin Stacks Center. According to Borough Solicitor Jeffrey Malak, Verizon must prove to Council that the project meets all criteria of the borough’s zoning regulations. Malak explained that, according to Pennsylvania law, the burden of proof lies on Council and the residents of Dallas Borough if they don’t want a cell phone tower at Twin Stacks. He also said that objections to the project from residents or Xouncil members must show that the project adversely affects the health, safety or welfare of the community. Dallas resident Charles Dube said that he felt this was “financially punitive.” He asked how a group of citizens could go up against Verizon, expressing fear that his and other residents’ property values would decrease if the tower is constructed. Verizon has developed plans to build a cell phone tower on part of the property known as the Twin Stacks center located at 1100 Memorial Highway. The area is presently zoned for industrial use. Verizon is seeking permission to construct a tower which will be 125 feet tall with a five foot lightning rod on top. The installation would also include a service shed and a couple parking spaces. The company also plans to build a gravel stone road to access the tower and equipment. No one would work at the tower but maintenance personnel would visit to make sure the equipment was functioning properly. Max Shradley, a professional civil engineer and representative of Rettew Associates Inc., answered questions about plans for the site. Residents whose

properties lie close to the proposed tower questioned Shradley closely about the appearance, the noise and possible safety issues related to the tower. Shradley said the only noise on the site would be created by a diesel generator which would be used in the event of a power outage. The engineer also showed a series of pictures showing how the tower would appear from different parts of the borough, offering plans for landscaping based on a request by the borough’s planning commission. Shradley also showed photos created by a process called visual analysis. A balloon was floated to the proposed level of the tower and pictures were taken. Then pictures of a similar tower were digitally inserted into the picture. He showed six views of the tower from various places in the borough. Residents also expressed concern about the safety of the proposed road, pointing out that children play in the woods in that area. Andrew Petersohn, a professional electrical engineer and owner of dBm Engineering P.C., began his part of the presentation explaining the need for an additional cell phone tower in the area. He said that Verizon is required by the FCC to provide adequate service to the area. He said that new towers are built based on several factors, including customer complaints, drive testing to find gaps in service, network statistics and a process called propagation modeling. He explained that the presence of Misericordia University represented heavy data usage and that students often use daSee HEARING, Page 10

Nathan Vario has help setting up for bench pressing during an extreme exercise program at Dallas High School.

Extreme fitness class at DHS pumps students Two physical wellness teachers decided new school building deserved new elective exercise class. By CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK Dallas Post Correspondent

Enthused by their new high school building with its state-ofthe-art weight room, Dallas Senior High School physical wellness teachers Ruth Skammer and Tom Connors decided the new facility deserved a new elective exercise class. The extreme fitness class they have designed is a very different physical educational class experience that is having tremendous and impressive results. The course, first offered in the fall, involves 32 minutes of nonstop activity during the first period of the day. The activities vary every day, but include strength, agility, endurance exercises and a lot of testing. Skammer says students are

tested before, during and after the nine-week 33-day program for weight, agility, body mass index, blood pressure, heart rate, endurance and flexibility. So what do they do that is so extreme? Day one: Testing, 12 minute run, shuttle run, sit-ups, pushups. Day three: Exercise to a P90X video concentrating on the biceps and triceps. Day five: Weight room stations, wrestling room and gym. By day seven, Skammer says, “We take them to the pool where they aqua jog for 30 minutes without touching the bottom of the pool.” And then….. National Guard Sgt. Patrick Scarfo, who teaches personal training for boot camp, comes in for calisthenics and more endurance training.

Kyle Williams does sit-up crunches with extra weight on his stomach during an extreme exercise program at Dallas Senior High School.

“I never expected it to be as hard as it was,” said Amy Avillion. “There’s no fooling around like in a regular gym class. By the end, I just wanted it to be over.” But older, more physically-seasoned students like Nathan Vario, who trains on the Dallas High School football team, said,

“This kept me in shape in the offseason. I lost 2 or 3 percent in weight and my endurance is better. I know my eating habits should be better, though.” Along with the physical part of the program, Mary Ehret, a nutrition educator, provides three See EXTREME, Page 11

Curriculum will change to better prepare students By SUSAN DENNEY Dallas Post Correspondent

Tracey Halowich, Director of Curriculum Instruction and Assessment for the Lake-Lehman District, announced at the Jan. 14 school board meeting that the science curriculum would change beginning in 2013-2014 in order to better prepare students for the Biology Keystone exam. She explained that proficiency on the exam will be a requirement for graduation beginning with the class of 2017. The

changes will affect students who are currently eight-graders and younger. Incoming seventh-graders will take physical science classes next year. Next year’s ninth-graders will be required to take biology which will create a one-year increase in sections since 10thgraders will also take the course. Halowich said the faculty is already working on solutions on how to deal with 13 sections of biology, adding that some teacher assignments will change. The curriculum change is intended to better prepare students for the Keystone exam and

Next year’s ninth-graders will be required to take biology which will create a one-year increase in sections since 10th-graders will also take the course.

the course will be offered as both a regular and an honors option. Halowich also said the history and English curriculum will change in 2014-15, as well. The new curriculum will feature content connecting the periods of history studied and the literature of those periods. Halowich said this is another effort to prepare students for mastery on Keystone end-of-course exams.

“The more connections we can make, the more successful they (the students) will be,” she said A tax increase for Lake-Lehman School District seems almost inevitable after a lengthy presentation to the board by Tom Melone, of Al Melone and Associates, the district’s financial manager. Melone and his associates are

currently projecting a $2.1 million shortfall for the 2013-14 school year if the board does not request a tax increase. He pointed out that the stateallowed tax increase of 2.1 mills would not cover the projected retirement cost increase for the district in the 2013-14 school year. A mill is a $1 tax on each $1,000 of assessed property value. According to Melone’s presentation, the estimated increase in retirement benefits paid by the district would be more than $600,000 over the current year’s retirement costs.

He said the state would cover a portion of those retirement benefit costs but that a 2.1 mill rise in taxes would not generate enough revenue to cover the remainder. Melone said the district could apply for an exception based on increased retirement benefit, allowing the board to raise the taxes by a total of 3.9 mills. Lake-Lehman is one of a few districts in the state which lies in two counties. The current millage rate for Lake-Lehman residents living in Luzerne County See CHANGE, Page 10

‘Vote’ shows obstacles faced by the physically challenged The Department of Communications at Misericordia University offers a special screening of its recently completed documentary, “Vote,” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 30 in the McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library. Dr. Melissa Sgroi, department chair, and Dan Kimbrough, assistant professor, traveled throughout the Wyoming Valley during the Nov. 6 general election to gauge whether or not polling places met Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and did not inhibit any members of the nation’s electorate from casting their ballots in the presi-

dential election. The Misericordia professors accompanied a physically challenged college student who lost the use of his legs after a snowboarding accident and his mother to a polling place to cast their ballots. They also talked to election officials, a state official and others to see why these obstacles from the environment have not been corrected at polling places. The screening on campus will also include people who agreed to participate in the shooting of the documentary, members of the media and special interest groups.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It was humorist Jerome K. Jerome who made the following sage observation: “It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.” • Though it is unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable, there is a law on the books in Tennessee which prohibits duelists, preachers and atheists from being elected to public office. • According to most history books, the first shots of the Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., in April of 1861, but that’s not entirely true. The first shots of the war between the North and the South actually were fired in January of that year in Pensacola, Fla., where a garrison of Union troops was stationed at Fort Barrancus. A contingent of Florida and Alabama troops marched on the fort with the intent to throw out the Yankees in their midst. However, the Southerners’ dedication to the cause was somewhat lacking; as soon as the Union soldiers fired at them, they beat a hasty retreat. • Those who study such things say that the average lightning bolt has a temperature of approximately 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. For comparison, the sun’s average temperature is only 10,000 F. • If you’ve ever been told to shut your pie-hole, you might have wondered where the expression came from. The term was first used in 1983, in the film version of Stephen King’s horror novel “Christine.” ••• Thought for the day: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.” - Jim Henson

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel • On Jan. 23, 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell is granted a medical degree from Geneva College in New York, becoming the first female to be officially recognized as a physician in U.S. history. In 1857, she founded the New York Infirmary for Women and Children. • On Jan. 27, 1888, the National Geographic Society is founded in Washington, D.C. Readership in its magazine did not grow, however, until it discarded the format of overly technical articles and used articles of general interest accompanied by photographs. “National Geographic” quickly became known for its stunning and pioneering photography. • On Jan. 24, 1935, canned beer makes its debut when the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered 2,000 cans of beer and ale to faithful Krueger drinkers in Richmond, Va. Ninety-one percent of the drinkers approved of the canned beer, prompting Krueger to give the green light to further production • On Jan. 21, 1957, Patsy Cline, one of the most important figures in country-music history, first gains national attention with her winning appearance on “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts.” Cline wowed the studio audience with her performance of the now-classic “Walkin’ After Midnight.”

Despite knee problems, James toughs things out By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Jared James could not help but think negative thoughts. When his twice-reconstructed left knee gave out while playing basketball in preparation for his senior season at Lake-Lehman, James feared he was done. “Right when it happened, I got down on a knee and it hurt a lot knowing that I might have messed up my knee for a third time,” James said. “I drove home myself, and I was thinking about it all the way home, how I might have to miss my senior season.” The news he received after a visit to the doctor, however, was not so discouraging. By the standards of his previous history with injuries, the damage was minor and James would only need arthroscopic surgery to fix the latest tear to his medial meniscus. “I was so relieved,” he said. “The doctor said he could probably get me back in a month to a month and a half. It was a feeling like no other.” The surgical work and the rehabilitation training that James has become accustomed to made that into an accurate prediction. When Lake-Lehman’s basketball team reported for the official start of practice a month later, James was on the court with his

teammates. After two more weeks, he was going at full speed. Or, at least at his current full speed. James, who already gave up playing soccer because of the two reconstructive knee surgeries that cost him his entire freshman year and the start of his junior basketball season, has evolved into a different player. He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament twice, also damaging his medial and lateral meniscus. “From the past and how I used to play, I think now I’m more worried about my ACL and other parts of my knee,” he said. “I definitely play a more conservative game.” James thinks his ability to make sharp cuts is diminished and he admits to being a bit less daring when taking the ball to the basket. But, he has still found plenty of ways to contribute to an improving Lake-Lehman program. From his spot on the wing, James is the team’s fourth-lead-

ing scorer and a conduit between the team’s perimeter offense and its inside attack. “I’m more worried about getting the assists than I am about scoring the points,” James said. “It has made me look for my teammates more. I used to be the person who was always looking to score. “We have a bunch of other kids who can score and I feel like it’s all right looking for other players more.” Lake-Lehman coach Brian Cutter was amazed just to have James, whom he calls the team leader, back on the court when practice started. “He’s the hardest worker on the team,” Cutter said. Adam Dizbon leads the team in scoring and runs the offense from the point guard position. Pete Borum is close behind, providing strength on the inside with help from Cody Paraschak. James has a knack for making the entry pass when Borum sets up in the low post. “I have played with Pete since he was a freshman and I was a

sophomore,” James said. “We work well together. “He’s my favorite big man I’ve ever played with because he works so hard to get position.” That combination is part of the

reason Lake-Lehman went 12-10 last season for its winning record in the last 20 years. After losing their first three games this season, the Black Knights improved to 5-6 and gave James reason to

believe better times are ahead. “I’ve been more confident with this team than any team I’ve had in the past,” James said. “I picture us going way above .500 this year.”

By TOM ROBINSON For the Dallas Post

Mountaineers easily handled rival Lake-Lehman in a pair of swimming meets at the Dallas Middle School Natatorium. Mosier juggled the lineup, putting swimmers in different events and mixing up boys relay teams to create combinations designed to have close races against each other. When it was over, Marcus Wagner and Sarah Fasulka had led the way to a pair of dominant victories. Wagner won two individual and two relay events to lead the Wyoming Valley Conference Southern Division-leading boys team to a 142-31 rout. Fasulka was the only Dallas girl with two individual wins and added a relay victory in the team’s first divisional triumph, 110-69.

“I didn’t put them in their normal events,” Mosier said. “I wanted to just try to see what they could do in some other events and give them an opportunity to do that.” Wagner, who is at his best in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle events, showed his versatility by winning the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke while also swimming legs on two of the team’s three winning relays. “Marcus is the type who whatever you put him in he does with heart and tries to do it well,” Mosier said. “That’s just the kind of kid he is.” Fasulka, a sophomore, took three seconds off her best time in the 200 freestyle while winning

in 2:20.0. “She’s an up-and-comer,” Mosier said. “She’s improving a lot this year, working toward her goals and getting her best times.” Dallas had several swimmers contribute winning efforts. The boys, the only unbeaten team in the division at 4-0, improved their overall record to 8-1 going into a meet that was scheduled for Thursday at Berwick. Jack Matusiak won the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke and was on the opening 200 me-

Brian Stepniak (500), Grant Luksic (200) and Owen Kiluk (100) each had one individual win in a freestyle event and took part in one relay win.

Misericordia President Michael MacDowell answered that question, saying that Misericordia lies in both Dallas Borough and Dallas Township and isn’t zoned as an industrial area in either political entity. He said it would require variances to allow construction of a tower on campus. Council representatives said a booklet created by Verizon which outlines its plan and supports its case for building the tower would be available to interested residents at the borough building. The hearing will continue on Feb. 20 with additional testimony from Verizon. After Verizon has completed its presentation,

residents may present objections to the project. During the regular Council meeting which followed the hearing, Council voted to approve its first ordinance of 2013 which will ban smoking in the borough building and on borough property. The borough will seek applications for a part-time police officer to serve in the Dallas Borough Police Department. The next council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 18. The conclusion of the hearing will be held at 6 p.m. on Feb. 20 at Misericordia. The hearing will be followed by another Council meeting at 7:30 p.m.

and the increase in retirement benefits which must be paid. Board Treasurer Andrew Salko praised the cooperation of the school administration, saying the board is working hard to avoid cutting programs such as music and sports as other districts have done. “We’re trying to avoid the easy cuts,” he said. Superintendent James McGovern told the board and assembled residents that the field turf must be replaced. “It’s a liability to the health and welfare of students,” McGovern said of the current field. He said that under current

budgetary restraints, the funds for new turf would have to be raised. He announced a cooperative fundraiser called “A Night of Mayhem” which would involve many of the district’s booster clubs. He said the groups would work together as one and would represent a big step for the district. He said the joint fundraiser would be a “universal effort” and that it would create “positive energy for our district.” At the board meeting, the three elementary campuses were all honored for achieving their AYP (adequate yearly progress) goals in 2010-11 and 20112012.
