9TH ANNUAL CLARKS SUMMIT FESTIVAL OF ICE

BY BEN FREDA Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE - At the Lackawanna Trail School District board meeting Feb. 11, Superintendent Matthew Rakauskas discussed district action to sustain safety and security to avoid an incident like the one that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last year. He mentioned that local and state police have been patrolling the outside of the school buildings. “Overfield Township (Overfield Township Police Department) has been wonderful,” said Rakauskas. “They worked at the elementary center at a random basis trying to get the level of comfort with the students at a higher level.” Rakauskas added that the high school established a relationship with the Wyoming County Juvenile Probation in the last 12 or 13 years, specifically a female probation officer who works with students on probation. “We are looking at expanding the role with Wyoming County Juvenile Probation by looking at a contract,” said Rakauskas. Rakauskas introduced two guests at the meeting: Director of the Wyoming County Emergency Management Agency Gene Dziak and Wyoming County Commissioner Thomas Henry. Dziak spoke on the topic of an active shooter

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. - South Abington Township joined Clarks Summit Borough in backing the Abington Regional Wastewater Authority’s (ARWA) financing for its upcoming renovation project. Township supervisors adopted two resolutions at a Feb. 11 meeting which guaranteed the authority’s payments on loans to fund the authority’s massive overhaul project, which is expected to cost “substantially less” than the $30 to $35 million figure the authority’s officials originally cited. The resolutions will allow the authority to proceed with securing funding for the projects, but the authority will seek final approval for the debt at a later date after gaining approval for the loans from the state, Donohue said. “You don’t guarantee it until the closing (of the loans),” Donohue said. The township, which is the most populous in the greater Abington area, would back 55 percent of the loans, proportionate with the township’s stake in the authority. The authority is currently ironing out the details on a $19 million loan from a consortium of local banks, which offered a better deal than the national bonding companies, Donohue said. A $10 million loan from the state and a $1 million state grant are already part of the project’s funding package. “The one nice thing is we gave it to a local bank here,” supervisor Giles Stanton said. “The money stays in town.” The guarantee would only See Sewer, Page 8

From Captain Planet and Super Mario to Mighty Mouse and Wonder Woman, their ice masterpieces delighted visitors of all ages.

Like some superheroes soar through the sky at lightning speed, one local student models detailed superhero replicas from clay at an impressive speed of about five minutes per sculpture. Jake Fruehan, 18, an Abington Heights High School student of Clarks Summit, uses his unique artistic gift to create intricate sculptures. Simply using his hands and occasionally a small carving stick, Fruehan is able to transform a solid ball of clay into a detailed masterpiece. One of Fruehan’s teachers, Mari Hendershot, who handles Autistic Support, explained how this hobby has proven to be very beneficial for her student, “It’s a big stress reliever for Jake,” she said. Fruehan has been perfecting his skills since age 3. It all began when Fruehan’s mother Debbie gave him a ball of clay to play with in church and the creativity continued from there. Now in high school, the artist has created everything from animals to Peter Pan to some of his favorite superheroes. Although most of these models are made from memory based on favorite movie characters and books, Fruehan occasionally uses different tactics to help him create, “I look at pictures sometimes.” Clay modeling is still Fruehan’s favorite form of art, but he recently branched out and tried a few new mediums. The young artist is able to practice these new forms of art at school, including drawing and ceramics. Fruehan explained the method he used to create his most recent model and favorite superhero, Captain America. Different shades of clay are added to make the superhero’s colorful uniform, and every detail from his face to his fingers are carefully constructed. Fruehan shared his favorite part about his Captain America model, “His shield and uniform.”

Joining forces to offer help

Relay unites area

A

local university’s travel course to Uganda turned into something more when two members of a Clarks Green church joined forces. Both St. Gregory’s Church parishioners and University of Scranton professors, Daniel Haggerty and Catherine Lovecchio brought their students to the East African nation to study its Christian heritage and perform relief work with the financial backing of contributions from the Clarks Green parish. St. Gregory’s parishioner Daniel Haggerty, who serves as philosophy professor and director of the SJLA honors program at the university, made the trip in 2011 with a number of his students. As part of the trip, the group of students and faculty conducted missions work, like building houses or providing food and supplies to hospitals and schools. Haggerty enlisted the help of St. Gregory’s parishioners for his return trip last month. As a member of the church’s pastoral council, Haggerty asked Rev. John Lapera, the church’s pastor, for help. “Father Lapera enthusiastically embraced the idea, recognizing that our parish could help,” Haggerty said. Haggerty also approached Lovecchio, a nursing professor at the university and a St. Gregory’s parishioner, to bring the nursing department students and faculty on the trip. “Dr. Haggerty approached me one day after church,” Lovecchio said. “He asked

Clarks Green parish, university students deliver support in Uganda BY GERARD NOLAN Abington Journal Correspondent

would I ever be interested in going to Africa with the Christianity course.” Haggerty wanted to get St. Gregory’s parishioners involved. After four university students who had made the Uganda trip last year made an appeal to St. Gregory’s parishioners one weekend in December 2012, the group collected thousands of dollars that would be used to help the Ugandans. “In one month, the parish raised about $6,000, including three laptop computers,” Haggerty said. “This personal invitation for support made all the difference in the world,” said Lapera of the groundswell of support for the missions trip. The money and equipment, which included school supplies, was directed to St. Joseph’s Nkoni Secondary School, a boarding school in Masaka, Uganda. When the university students and faculty visited St. Joseph’s, they worked on repair of the school’s facilities, including a shower. Haggerty said he was struck by the students there, describing them as “profoundly grateful.” “When the kids are there, there’s a lot of joy, a lot of enthusiasm,” Haggerty said. The group presented a chance for the students to escape poverty and begin to “contribute to society and the common good.” A contingent of nursing students assisted at the Bwindi Community Hospital, an

Anglican hospital founded by Dr. Scott Kellermann and his wife, Carol, of the Kellermann Foundation. The Scranton nursing students presented the Bwindi nursing students with medical equipment. Each stethoscope had a note of encouragement attached, Lovecchio said. “It was really fortuitous because they’re in the process of building a nursing school,” Haggerty said of the nursing students’ visit. Lovecchio had performed research to see how she and her students could best serve the Ugandans. The country’s healthcare challenges differ from those in the U.S., she said. Diseases like malaria and yellow fever are rampant in that region, for example. Lovecchio was at a nursing conference when a chance encounter led to a donation. “I went over to one vendor—I don’t know why it came up,” she said. The vendor asked her, “Any chance you’re going on any missions trips this year? My company would like to donate stethoscopes.” The company gave Lovecchio 50 new stethoscopes and 10 blood pressure cuffs, which would normally cost approximately $5,000, Lovecchio said. Lovecchio said the experience affected the college students. “In the end, I think the two groups really complemented each other,” she said of her nursing students and the SJLA students. “They think

on a different level than they did before.” Parishioners and others were able to track the trip’s progress on a Facebook page: St. Gregory’s Church - Ugandan Ministry. Haggerty and Lovecchio uploaded photos and updates as the trip progressed. “I believe our parish family has a great respect for the gospel notion of charity in terms of extending gifts of time, talent and treasure to members of our global community in need,” Lapera said. The church and university communities plan to keep in contact with the Ugandans and help in the future. The nursing department plans to teach classes via the Internet in the coming weeks, Lovecchio said. “They’re really bright people, she said. “The just don’t have the resources we have.” St. Gregory’s Church, for its part, will continue support, Lapera said. “We definitely want to continue support and will direct a portion of this year’s Lenten almsgiving to the school,” Lapera said. “We envision over a period of time to develop a greater relationship with the African community.” Lovecchio mused about the trip and the people she met. “When it comes down to it, we’re all just human beings,” she said. “The human spirit is the same no matter what your conditions are. We all have love, suffering and joy.”

drill, set for Aug. 27. “Pennsylvania Emergency Management requires us to be in schools and help develop safe school programs, and we actually report back on our progress and how these plans are going,” said Dziak. “Very fortunately, Wyoming County is small enough to only have two school districts; therefore, with our staff, we were able to supply resources to both Lackawanna Trail and Tunkhannock Area to get in here and really do some good, safe school planning.” Dziak said that although Sandy Hook Elementary had safe school planning, the incident still occurred because someone broke into the school. “What we need to be looking at and what we need to continue to do is test our vulnerabilities in our buildings,” said Dziak. Dziak said he consulted with the State Police and is touring Tunkhannock Area School District. Captains of Wyoming County Emergency Management will offer a lecture training of the “Run, Hide, Fight” philosophy. A team of State Police officers from Harrisburg and local law enforcement will visit the school as if there is an active shooter. An individual will act as the shooter

and police will proceed. “They (the police) will be using ammunition that is a paint bullet, so you will know gunfire sounds like in school,” said Dziak. “They (the students and teachers) will see police officers come through the door on a search. It is realistic. It will give them opportunities to say ‘Wait a minute. What’s going on? What do I need to do?’ High school principal John Rushefski said that custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers and bus drivers are the first line in defense. Rakauskas announced to the board that students will practice a similar drill during a March 13 tornado drill. Commissioner Henry said he attended the safety meeting and was impressed with the thought process. “I really feel that you guys have a really great team,” he said. Later in the meeting, board member David Thorne made a motion to approve the contract between the Lackawanna Trail School District and Wyoming County Juvenile Probation. The board approved. Rakauskas said the juvenile probation officer will continue to be a member of the Student Assistant Program and the Safe Schools Committee and she will interface with the administration and faculty to assist Lackawanna Trail students.

Continued from Page 1 four months to process their background checks, they were granted asylum and allowed to move to the U.S. Language was a major barrier for the young couple. Mirek was unable to find work in his profession as a land surveyor, so they reached out to SCOLA and a volunteer was dispatched to their home in West Scranton help them learn English. After four years of training, he was able to begin working in his field. By then, Jolanta was a seamstress at the Globe Store in Scranton and offered repairs and alterations out of their home. In the mid-1980s, the couple welcomed a son and daughter. After a few more years, Jolanta and Mirek officially became U.S. citizens. It was then the seamstress started putting in more hours at work. “We wanted them to have every opportunity,” Jolanta said. “I started waitressing at Cooper’s. I would work doubles, ten to 12- hour shifts. We

put the kids through Scranton Prep and Penn State. I’ve been at Cooper’s for 21 years and it has been a wonderful place to work. ” Daughter Karolina, 29, is an architect in San Francisco with the firm Bohlin, Cywinski and Jackson and son Matthew, 28, is a civil engineer with McCormick Taylor in Philadelphia. Four years ago, Jolanta and her husband furthered their dream by moving to the greater Abington area. “I always loved Clarks Summit,” she said. “The little shops, it feels European to me. My favorite stores are Caravia and Everything Natural. I just love it here.” She opened shop on North State Street just before Christmas, 2012. It took time to find the right space, she said, but then a grey house with black shutters came available. “In repairing an item, I don’t

For example, I don’t order zippers or things in bulk beforehand. I custom order for each job. I want it to be the perfect match.” The seamstress smiled as she looks around the room. “I am so happy to come here in the morning. When people come and I can help them, I can improve their appearance for the better. I want to please the customer. When the customer is happy, I am happy.

CLARKS GREEN- This month’s meeting of the Abington Council of Governments (ACOG) Feb. 7 at the Clarks Green Borough Building included a presentation by representatives from the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board concerning more municipal involvement with the board. Mark Dougherty, South Abington Township Supervisor and member of the Recreation Board, gave background on municipalities that currently participate as members of the board: Glenburn, Waverly, South Abington townships and Clarks Summit and Clarks Green boroughs. “All the parks in the Abington Area are for everyone’s enjoyment. There’s no reason that others shouldn’t be able to join,” he said. He asked everyone to return to their communities and request involvement, if their town is not already involved, either as members or even associate members. “The more participating municipalities, the more funding options and the more grant options we have.” Dougherty added that the board is not in favor of raising funds by charging park users a fee. Bill Risse the Recreation Board chair mentioned that the various building projects at the Abington Area Community Park are funded through grants and fundraisers, not municipal money. “There’s not a nickel of municipal money in the projects… we rely on municipal funding for everyday maintenance.” He also mentioned volunteer effort that goes into funding projects, such as the Dog Park construction. “Better parks increase property values,” he added. Dougherty said that communities with their own parks could get involved not just to improve the Abington Area Community Park, but their own parks as well, because of the joint resources, such as grants and fundraising. Diane Vietz from the Recreation Board mentioned the upcoming summer Lakeside Concert Series. “The lake is in a central location and we’d like to showcase it.” She added, “We have five good, local bands performing for free in the middle of the week. It’s an opportunity for people to connect.” More information on the Abington Area Community Park and Recreation Board can be found at http:// www.aajrb.com/.

Thanksgiving MEMORIES BY ARIELLE KOVALICH Abington Journal Correspondent

A Clarks Summit -born author returned to the area Presidents Day weekend to present his most recent book, “Thanksgiving Breakfast.” John Fitzgerald, now an Ohio resident, wrote the book with his hometown in mind. Set in the 1960s, “Thanksgiving Breakfast” captures the journey of a group of friends and their adventures while growing up in Clarks Summit and eventually going their separate ways to start their lives in other areas. The title itself refers to a rivalry football game that took place during Thanksgiving season. Fitzgerald depicted the meeting of his characters at a small restaurant and pub called “Eddie O’Connor’s,” now commonly recognized as State Street Grill. Fitzgerald explained how the group of friends would patronize Shadowbrook in Tunkhannock and also Eddie O’Connor’s. The book narrates the character’s adventures including everything from the anticipated football game to submerging a Jeep un-

Fitzgerald said to his future readers, “There are a lot of laughs and some tears.” Also available

Mystery musical headed to BBC The comedy “Something’s Afoot,” a unique musicalmystery, will be presented on the Baptist Bible College stage in Clarks Summit during February and March. Under the direction of Dr. Brian Maxwell, the two-act show will be onstage Feb. 28 through March 2. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Phelps Student Center. Tickets will be available through the campus Box Office or can be purchased online at www.bbc.edu/events or by calling 570.585.9000.

Set in an isolated English manor house, the story involves 10 people who have been invited by the estate’s owner, Lord Dudley Rancour. Shortly after arriving they find they are trapped in the house by a thunderstorm and that Lord Rancour has been murdered. As the group investigates the situation, members begin to each meet an unfortunate demise through fiendish yet hilarious devices. Bodies begin to accumulate as the survivors attempt to identifythe killer. The 10-member cast includes: Rachel Mowers, as Lettie; Ben Johnson, as Flint; Steve Wagner, as Clive; Joanna Ferbrache, as Hope Langdon; Scott Cleveland, as Dr. Grayburn; Chris Muska, as Nigel Rancour; Morgan White, as Lady Grace Manley-Prowe; Ben Howell, as Col. Gillweather; Traci Thompson, as Miss Tweed and Neil Scott, as Geoffrey. Dr. Maxwell has taught and directed plays at the college for more than 25 years.

There is something for everyone on her list of projects, ranging from easy animal shapes to baby shower and graduation specialties, not to mention dozens of ideas for holiday party pops. She also includes recipes for simple yellow and chocolate cakes and easy frosting recipes.

Set in Montreal just after the end of World War II, this novel tells the story of an enigmatic young woman, clearly not the person she claims to be, who disappears, leaving a new husband and baby daughter with only a diary, a large, uncut diamond and a need to find the truth. It’s now up to the daughter Lily abandoned all those years before to find the answers to these questions, as she searches for closure. “Burying the Past,” by Judith Cutler.

No-fault workers’ compensation directs employers to guarantee payments to workers injured on the job while employees relinquish the right to sue employers for workrelated injuries. When workers suffer work-related injuries, they should notify their employers as soon as possible and ask for a claim form to fill out. If the claim is accepted, benefits should commence promptly. If, on the other hand, the claim is partly or completely denied, an employee can have it reviewed by the workers’ compensation appeals board. Moreover, a worker can sue the workers’ compensation appeals board if he or she does not agree with its decision and have the extent of his or her disability and the amount of benefits decided in court.

Displaying some of the more than 800 jeans collected at Lackawanna County Library System libraries are Jeanie Sluck, director of Taylor Public Library, Christina Thomas, Circulation Manager at Albright Memorial Library and Leah Ducato Rudolph, director of Abington Community Library.

Library patrons donate 800 pair to jeans drive

Lackawanna County Library System patrons dropped off more than 800 pairs of blue jeans at participating libraries during the month of January and patients at the Clarks Summit State Hospital will benefit from their generosity. The clothing drive, called “Just Jeans in January,” was part of a yearlong initiative by the libraries to engage closely with non-profit organizations in the communities they serve. According to January’s organizer Leah Ducato Rudolph, director of the Abington Community Library, the jeans collection is the first of what will be a monthly drive that will match the generosity of library users with the needs of local nonprofits. In February, the libraries will be collecting items needed at the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. Rudolph said that the decision to develop the yearlong effort grew out of a Pennsylvania Library Association initiative called PA FORWARD, which, as one of its objectives, seeks to encourage public libraries to provide citizens of all ages the knowledge and skills they need to improve their lives, to contribute effectively in their communities, and to participate in civil discourse.” More than 60,000 people in

Lackawanna County have library cards, and every year more than 750,000 people pass through the doors of the county’s10 libraries,” she said. “Engaging our patrons in civic and charitable endeavors is potentially very powerful. We sincerely thank everyone for their donations; the response was overwhelming.” Jeanie Sluck, Director of the Taylor Community Library, said that for the February drive she has spearheaded, libraries are asking for donations of pet food, toys, cat litter, garbage bags, paper towels, and cleaning supplies, among other things. There will be a collection barrel for donations in each participating library, she added. “People interested in donating can get a complete list of needed items at their library or online at www.lclshome.org/abington,” Rudolph said. Participating libraries include Abington Community Library, Albright Memorial Library and its Nancy Kay Holmes and Library Express Branches, the Carbondale Public Library, the Lackawanna County Children’s Library, the Dalton Community Library, the North Pocono Public Library, the Taylor Community Library and the Lackawanna County Library System Bookmobile.

Library adds to DVD collection The Abington Community Library recently purchased and installed a new DVD case for a growing DVD and Blu-Ray collection. The collection includes popular fiction movies, seasons of various TV shows and nonfiction presentations, all available for free 1-week rentals with a library card. The purchase was made possible by the cash award granted to the library from the R. Matthew Burne Lifetime Service Award, made by The Abington Journal newspaper in honor of trustee Janet McCabe, as well as from funds received during the 2012-2013 Annual Fund Drive. Shown are Kristie Grier Ceruti, Journal editor and Teresa Figlow, Head of Circulation and responsible for ordering DVDs and music CDs for the Library.

He made 9 of 16 shots from the field and finished with 19 points, eight rebounds, and three assists against Drew, then connected on 6 of 11 shots and finished with 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals in the victory over Catholic University, which locked up a Landmark Conference postseason tournament berth. In the latest Landmark Conference statistical rankings, Danzig leads the league in rebounding (7.7), defensive rebounds per game (5.5), and minutes played (35.6); is fifth in free throw percentage (.802), sixth in assist-to-turnover ratio, tied for sixth in offensive rebounds per game (2.2), ninth in assists (3.0), and tenth in field goal percentage (.802). He has been previously honored by the conference Jan. 29, 2012, Feb. 20, 2012 and Nov. and Nov. 26. He is also ranked among the nation’s leaders. Danzig is 121st in ‘double-doubles’ (5), 136th in free throw percentage, 141st in rebounding, 172nd in assist-to-turnover ratio, 175th in scoring, and 225th in field goal percentage in the latest NCAA Division III rankings as of Feb. 7.

Quality time spent on the ice BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Why would Jerry Vitale Jr., Kingston and his father, Jerry Vitale Sr., spend an afternoon outdoors “on ice” when the temperature struggled to rise above 20 degrees and the wind chill whipped across Lake Lackawanna at Lackawanna State Park? An affinity for the outdoors is part of the attraction for Vitale Jr. “I hunt, fish, you name it. I’m outside,” said Vitale, who gets out to ice fish a few times a year. “This gets me out and away from work…” While many people would

prefer to stay inside on a wintry day, Feb. 17, Vitale and his father braved the cold, and were set up on the lake with a Marcum VX-1P Fishing Sonar System, or a “fish” or “depth” finder, which lets him know “if the fish are around;” an auger, rods, bait and other equipment. “I’m fairly new to ice fishing. Every year I move up with technology a little bit,” he said, referring to the fish finder. “That’s new for me this year. It makes it (ice fishing) a little easier.” See Ice, Page 14

A moment with a motivator Fitness instructor Mary Amico offers some commentary on how she changed her life and health. On eating well: “We all think we understand what eating well means, but we don’t. It wasn’t until I eliminated processed foods from my diet, kept sugar to a bare minimum and cut out alcohol to an extreme minimum that I started to see real changes. My energy levels skyrocketed. I detoxed myself from caffeine and sugar completely. I ate to fuel my body and stopped counting calories. I didn’t starve myself on 1200 to 1400 calories – I didn’t know how many calories I was eating, only that I was eating a lot more protein and a lot less sugar. I ate more vegetables than ever. I lost 20 pounds, and I attribute the reason my metabolism revived itself not only because I eliminated stress and energy vampires from my life, but from analyzing the benefit of every single thing I ate. We don’t realize that just about every moment of every day we are tempted to eat poorly. There is sugar at every checkout line at the grocery store. We are bombarded with dessert ads on TV and in magazines, and just about every month of every year we are given “permission” to eat poorly…. Look at what is put in front of our face at the holidays, football parties, Valentine’s Day, Easter, summer barbecues…it goes on and on. Restaurant menus are generally killers for your metabolism too. You can sit at most restaurants and eat over 2,000 calories in one meal without realizing it. Fruits, vegetables and lean meats should be the staple of everyone’s diet. From someone who works out vigorously 8 to 10 hours a week, I have finally learned protein is your best friend and 80 percent of how your body is going to shape itself is a result of diet. If you are having energy crashes in the afternoon or if you find yourself having a harder time with weight loss, you need to really evaluate your relationship with those nasty processed foods. Sugar is a hidden ingredient in so many of the things we eat. I am not saying you can never have a glass of wine or a piece of pizza again, but you need to really think about how much and how often you are consuming these things while you are trying to improve your overall health and lower your body fat percentage.”

MARLEY’S MISSION 3RD ANNUAL BLUE RIBBON GALA: FEBRUARY 16

President: Volunteers ‘inspiring,’ event ‘magical’

BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

According to Gene Talerico, Esq., President, Marley’s Mission, Inc., “This year’s gala was, simply put, magical,” said Talerico. The Third Annual Blue Ribbon Gala was held Feb. 16, at The Hilton Hotel and Conference Center, Scranton. He added, “From the innovative sustainable art project of a horse called ‘Hope’ to the talented work of young people from Occhipinti Dance Studio and Keystone College, the evening was truly inspiring. Each year the Marley’s Mission family marvels at the incredible support we receive from our community. This year, we celebrate the building of our future, our permanent home in Newton Township. And the cornerstone of the effort is clearly the strength and support of our friends and neighbors. My favorite part of the gala is the infusion of young people into the program. More than 20 Junior Ambassadors paid it forward and dedicated their time and energy to make the evening a success. They are our future. And their presence and their work inspire me.” Marley’s Mission, a nonprofit organization, provides Equine-Assisted therapy at no cost to children and families who have experienced trauma. It was founded by April Loposky after her child received assistance for trauma through equine therapy. Nearly 450 tickets were sold for this year’s gala. Event co-chair Gretchen Wintermantel said “We are still working on our final numbers, but I am thrilled to say that we met, if not exceeded, our fundraising goal. We are very pleased with the turnout for our Third Annual Blue Ribbon Gala. This is truly a

testament to the important work that Marley’s Mission does.” Among honorees were Denise Vitali Burne, Berwyn, formerly of Clarks Summit and Keith Eckel, Newton Township, recipients of the “Saddle of Hope” award. The theme of the 2013 centerpiece project which featured art created by children from area schools, organizations and groups, was “What Does a Forever Home Mean to You?” It is “reflecting the fact that Marley’s Mission has purchased its forever home on a beautiful 32.4-acre property in Newton Township,” according to Wintermantel. Among highlights were an interactive mixed media piece of artwork created at the Gala coordinated by members of the gala committee, Clarks Summit artist Trinka Ravaioli and New Milford graphic designer Maria Conigliaro.

I currently reside in Jermyn with my wife Barbara and several pets. I started my career as a sales consultant 26 years ago. I have been with the Gibbons family for the past 15 years and have been ranked in the top 600 Ford and Lincoln salespeople in the Nation for both sales volume and customer satisfaction. My love and enjoyment outside of the automobile industry comes from supporting and being involved with the Griffon Pond Animal Shelter. I also enjoy animals of all kinds, ice fishing, hunting and avid fan of traveling to several NHRA drag racing events during the year.
