Engineering firm clears project


By Gerard NolaN Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT — As part of its ongoing attempts to find new revenue streams, Clarks Summit borough council voted to move ahead with placing advertisements on police vehicles at a meeting March 6. Council member Pat Williams pitched the idea to council, which voted unanimously to pursue the initiative. “The police department vehicles are out 24/7, 365 days a year,” Williams said. Department of Public Works (DPW) vehicles were initially floated as advertising space, but they lacked the constant exposure that police cars get, Williams said. The plan includes placing six stickers on the back lower quarter panel on three police vehicles. Prices and terms have not been worked out, but Williams said he has found at least one potential advertiser. Williams and fellow council member Herman Johnson researched the advertising idea and consulted with Mayor Harry Kelly, Solicitor Pat Rogan and District Attorney Andy Jarbola. None had any objections, Williams said. Roy Davis, council vice president, cautioned against advertisements that detract from vehicles roles as police vehicles. “The primary function of a police car is to be a police car,” Davis said. “It has to be number one primarily identified as a police vehicle….I really think we have to be careful in not overdoing it.” Davis also suggested the finance committee check with local advertising firms to get a sense for how to price the ads. The borough will reserve the right to reject any advertisements it finds “objectionable or controversial,” according to Williams. The seeds of the idea came from a newspaper story Johnson found about a police

CLARKS SUMMIT- John Pocius, vice president and chief operating officer of Ceco Associates Inc., provided the Abington Heights School Board with an update of his research of the Leggets Creek Trunk Sewer project. South Abington Twp. has requested the Abington Heights School District sign off on two easements to install a new gravity sewer line behind South Abington Elementary School. If the board votes to accept the easement, two pump stations, which have an average shelf life of 20 years, would be replaced with a gravity sewer line estimated to last at least 150 years, according to South Abington Twp. Manager David O’Neill. “In conclusion, it is our opinion with a reasonable degree of engineering certainty that the granting of the permanent and temporary easements will not adversely affect the school property,” Pocius said. According to Abington Heights Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Mahon, the board retained the services of civil and environmental engineering firm Ceco Associates, Scranton to review the plans of the project and easements to ensure that the district’s rights are perserved. After reviewing the original easement and based on discussions between township officials and their engineer, Pocius thought it would be wise to develop a construction easement area which would evaporate at the end of the construction, designating access for equipment. Also, if both easements are accepted, the contractors will

have 54 days to complete the project once the school year is over at South Abington Elementary School. That time period includes required mobilization for this area, sewer line construction, sewer line testing, complete site restoration and demobilization from the area. Board member Louise Brzuchalski believes the project would be positive for all parties involved. “It’s good for the community; we’re saving taxpayers money and the kids are protected,” she said. Mahon is confident the board and South Abington Twp. will work together constructively on the project. “My genuine sense is that they want this to be a great partnership and the overall history with South Abington Twp., in every respect they have been nothing but cooperative,” he said. The board is expected to vote on the easements during its March 20 school district meeting. Abington Heights Solictor Matthew Barrett hopes to finalized the easements with South Abington Twp. Solictor Bill Jones before the meeting. Barrett also reassured the board that school property must be restored to the exact condition it was in prior to work being done. According to Pocius, a meeting attended by representatives from South Abington Twp., Abington Heights School District, including Barrett, Cardno BCM and CECO Associates Inc., alleviated previous concerns about the project. “The project was discussed in detail and resolution of all outstanding issues appeared to have been resolved,” he said. Pocius continued that the

Lt. gov discusses liquor privatization at local Weis Market By GERARd NOlAN Abington Journal Correspondent

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. — Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley made a case on March 5 for the Corbett administration’s plan to get the state out of the liquor business. The lieutenant governor paid a visit to the Weis Markets store on Northern Boulevard in South Abington Township where beer is sold in a separate cafe area with a restaurant license. “The difference between this and what the governor is proposing is the absence of those requirements of additional infrastructure and that additional expense,” Cawley said. Privatization would lift some

restrictions governing alcohol sales and “bring Pennsylvania into the 21st century,” Cawley said. Under the new plan, grocery stores and other outlets would be able to sell up to six bottles of wine and up to a 12-pack of beer without a restaurant license. Beer distributors would be allowed to sell wine and spirits if they purchase a liquor-sales license. Cawley said the new plan would lead to competitive pricing, better selection and more convenience for Pennsylvania consumers. “People are flocking to this opportunity,” he said. “So,

Colon cancer, one of the deadliest cancers, can often be cured with early screening and siblings Mike Moran and Maura Staback hope to spread that message again this year. When their mother, Helen Phillips, succumbed to the disease in 2002 after a sixmonth battle, the two vowed to help save others from a similar fate. Their mother had been diagnosed with a late stage of the disease and the cancer had spread to other organs. “We didn’t want others to go through the same turmoil that we did,” said Moran, who resides in South Abington Twp. With the help of the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, the two instituted CASUAL (Colon Cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day 10 years ago. The program’s aim is to spread awareness and raise money to combat the disease in Northeastern Pennsylvania where the incidence rate surpasses the national average by 23 percent. Colon cancer, if caught early, can often be cured, according to Christine Zavaskas, of the

Northeastern Regional Cancer Institute. The cancer can often develop undetected, so the key is for everyone to get screened, usually beginning around age 50, she said. The idea behind CASUAL Day is, first and foremost, to spread awareness, Zavaskas added. “The whole idea with the dress down day is that you’re dressing casual and you’re being encouraged to have more casual conversation about screening,” Zavaskas said. “It’s not something people really talk about. It’s uncomfortable.” But screening can mean the difference between a cure and undetected cancer that spreads to other organs in the body. Now in honor of the program’s 10th anniversary, Moran and Staback, who have been involved since its inception, are once again chairing the event, which has grown in leaps and bounds in the past decade. Last year 6,000 people participated in the program. “To be honest, I think we’ve been surprised with how successful the program has been,”

Lackawanna County residents will feel right at home with the book chosen for the 2013 edition of “On the Same Page in Lackawanna County,” sponsored by the Lackawanna County Library System to encourage local residents to read and talk about the same book. “The Queen of the Big Time” by Adriana Trigiani, is set in Roseto, a Northampton County borough located about halfway between Stroudsburg and Easton and less than an hour from Scranton by car. Like many small towns in Lackawanna County, Roseto was settled by Italian immigrants. The book evokes that heritage, as all the main characters are Italian, and the culture, the food, and the traditions will be familiar to readers. “Part of the fun of reading the book will be spotting local and cultural references,” said Mary Garm library system administrator. In addition to reading the book, participants can participate in discussions about it held throughout March and April at local libraries. They will also have a chance to hear the author in a public lecture at the Scranton Cultural Center in April. Trigiani is a native of Stone Gap, Virginia, and a graduate of St. Mary’s College at Notre Dame University. She is the author of 14 books, including 12 novels. Most reflect her Italian background. She is scheduled to speak April 18, at 7 p.m. at the Cultural Center. There will be a reception for “On the Same Page” participants prior to the

event. “On the Same Page in Lackawanna County” is among hundreds of community reading programs organized by libraries around the country, according to Garm. “The idea is to get lots of people reading the same book and talking about it,” said Mrs. Garm. “People who read “The Queen of the Big Time” can talk about the book among friends or they can join the conversation at any of the county’s libraries.” Book discussions will be led by Jean Marie Lynn, a librarian at the Taylor Community Library, and run through the end of April. Check the library system’s website (www. for dates, times and locations. Garm noted that this is the 6th year for “On the Same Page in Lackawanna County.” Previous years featured books by Brad Meltzer, Lisa Scottoline Julie Powell, Tess Gerritsen and Laura Lippman. Funding for the program is provided by the Lackawanna County Office of Arts and Culture. “On the Same Page in Lackawanna County” runs through March and April. Anyone interested can sign up at the Abington Community Library, Albright Memorial Library, Nancy Kay Holmes Branch Library, Carbondale Public Library, Dalton Community Library, North Pocono Public Library, Taylor Community Library, Valley Community Library, the Lackawanna County Library System bookmobile or Library Express.

Volunteer: ‘There’s no cooks like country cooks’ Countryside Community ChurCh will host AnnuAl turkey supper in new building for first time. By Ben Freda Abington Journal Correspondent

NEWTON TWP. - Because of preparations for its new church building, Countryside Community Church decided to postpone its annual turkey supper last fall. But on April 13 at 4 p.m., Countryside will be able to serve the family-style dinner for the first time in the new building, which is located on Orchard Drive in Newton Township. With its large social hall, the church is able to seat at least 150 people. “We have a lot more room with the new dining hall, so it won’t be so crowded,” said volunteer Sandy LaCoe. Volunteers will cook the food in the new state-of-the-art kitchen. The turkey supper will include: Pallman’s roast turkey, homemade stuffing, real mashed potatoes and gravy, butternut squash, green beans, fresh cut coleslaw, cranberry sauce, rolls, butter and assorted desserts. The beverages will include coffee, tea and birch beer on tap. “There’s no cooks like country cooks,” said volunteer Florence Jamison. “The food’s so good you hate getting full.” The turkey supper will be first come, first served.

There will be entertainment before the dinner. Everyone is welcome. You will have a grand time.” Takeout dinners will be available only at the NewtonRansom Fire Hall starting at

4 p.m. Bake sale items will be available at both the church and the fire hall. Adult dinners are $12 and $6 for children under 12. The turkey supper is also offering a $1 discount on advance sale tickets, which are available at the church office during normal office hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until April 5. Countryside Community Church will still have the turkey supper again during the normal time, which is the third

Saturday of October. “We’re looking forward to having the turkey dinner in the new church,”said volunteer Ron Imdorf. “We are now able to serve more people. Our new state-of-the-art kitchen and larger social hall should make preparation and serving easier.” For more information about the turkey supper, call 570.587.3206 or e-mail www.

clearly there is a demand within the market to make this available to more Pennsylvanians.” He added that Pennsylvania is one of only two states that exercises complete control over liquor sales. If the plan is put in place , Utah would be the only state with a state-run liquor business. Cawley touted the benefits of privatization, including the plan to direct revenue from privatization toward education funding. “We’re going to take those revenues and spend them in perhaps the best place we can,” he said. “We’re going to spend them on our children.”

Abington Heights School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Mahon said his district is open to any extra revenue. “To the extent that any program would increase our revenues, allow us to make some one-time purchases, it can’t help but be helpful,” Mahon said. Dennis Curtin, director of public relations for the grocery store chain, expressed appreciation for the privatization plan. “We think it’s a great idea that the lieutenant governor and Gov. Corbett have put this issue on the front burner,” he said, adding that Weis Markets has been freely selling alcohol in New York and West Virginia.

Six words may not seem like much, but for some writers in the Abingtons, they are the summary of a lifetime. Abington Area Community Classroom’s (AACC) event The Six Word Slam will be held March 22 on the second floor of the Clarks Summit Borough Building at 6 p.m. It will feature the stories—told using six words each—of area residents about life in the Abingtons. Anne Armezzani, one of the event organizers, said The Six Word Slam is a part of “Abington Area Community Classroom’s goal to bring people together and offer a creative way to share memories of living in NEPA.” Each participant is asked to write a “slam,” consisting of six words which best represent his or her life in the Abingtons. The slams may also be accompanied by illustrations or photographs, if the author so chooses. During the event, entrants will be invited to read

their slams out loud (or ask someone else to read in their place) and exlain the stories behind them. The stories will then be compiled into a printed collection, which will be distributed for display around town at local businesses and organizations. Armezzani said the idea for the event came from Paula Baillie, who heard about the concept on the radio. It originated with Smith Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir project, which can be found online at “She [Baillie] brought it before our group and explained how she would love to use it as a gathering focus in Clarks Summit,” Armezzani said. “She really is the reason it is happening.” The Six Word Slam is open to all ages, and the entry fee is $6. Coffee, tea, soda and light refreshments will be provided at the event. Pre-registration is not required, and all are welcome to attend, with or without a slam. “We are hoping for lots of

Winter is a hard time for many trying to make ends meet and this is one way for Rotarians to reach out to the less fortunate. Rotarians collected a carload of peanut butter, dried milk and other non-perishables for the Pantry. SAVE THE DATE(s)! Pasta Joe Pagnani has started planning this year’s annual Pasta Dinner. The tentative date is Sunday, April 28atthe

Abington Heights High School. Planning has also begun for this year’s fireworks show at the Abington Heights Middle School. Look for some new twists on this well-attended community event. Our tentative show date is July 3 with rain date of July 4. Thank you to the community for supporting this annual event. SYMPATHY EXTENDED Sympathy is extended to the family of Elizabeth McFarland. Her husband, Ed, also deceased, was a long-time Rotary Club of the Abingtons member. They will both be greatly missed.

ESSAY CONTEST FOR 11TH GRADERS NOW OPEN Each year District 7410 holds an Essay Contest for public high school juniors. Each club contacts their local public high school English Departments and presents the contest theme for the year. The Clubs submit their top essay to the district Essay Contest Committee where they are judged. This year’s theme is: An Enthusiastic Role Model Can Change Lives. Students are to describe their personal role model and how that model influenced them to make a difference in their community. Prizes are awarded at the District level as follows: First Prize $500; Second Prize $400; Third Prize $300; Fourth Prize $200; Fifth Prize $150; Sixth Prize $100. The District Contest is sponsored by the 42 Clubs in the 10 counties served by Rotary District 7410. Rotary Club of the Abingtons also acknowledges three winners locally with prizes of $25, $50, and $100. Through March 20 Abington Heights High School teachers conduct the contest with 11th grade students. Enthusiastic English teachers are often key players for a successful essay contest. Teachers

collect and compile essays and submit all essays to the club representative via provided envelope. Winners are announced in April. Please encourage your AHHS 11th grader to enter the contest. INTERACT NEWS The Interact Club at Abington Heights High School continues to live up to the Rotary International ideals and especially the ideal of promoting international peace and understanding among countries. Toward the end of last year, the Interact Club identified as their international fundraiser, a focus on supporting education for children who are less fortunate in Kenya. The team sold T-shirts and bracelets which brought in $500. The money was personally delivered to two schools by Rotarian Tata Mbugua who was attending a conference in Kenya in January 2013. This money was shared equally in supporting two distinct primary schools. The first school, Ndurarua Primary School, located in the poorer neighborhoods of Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi, has over 1,360 students enrolled (although it was built in 1967 to cater for 800). This donation will be used to support their Achiever’s Club. The second

A unique feature of Hotcourses Primary School is that it is a school within Nyumbani Village (Swahili for home). The 1,000 acre Village is a model bio-friendly and self-sustaining community serving 1,000 orphans and elders who have been left behind by the “lost generation” resulting from HIV/AIDS pandemic. This means that the orphans have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and are being raised by their grandparents. Noni Murithi, a member of Interact Club and

Rotary Club of the Abington’s Youth Exchange to the Philippines (2011-2012) donated her Interact Club T-Shirts and Comets jerseys to both schools as a symbol of solidarity between Interact Club and the two schools. Join us any Thursday at 12:10 p.m. for lunch. Lunch will be our treat and our meeting will give you an opportunity to see how much fun you can have while helping improve our community.

Susquehanna-Roseland Project reps visit Ransom By ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER

Representatives from PPL Electric and T&D Power attended the Ransom Township Board of Supervisors meeting March 4 to discuss the Susquehanna-Roseland Electric Reliability Project, a 500,000 volt transmission line from Berwick to Roseland, N.J. Rich Beasley, of PPL Electric spoke briefly about the project, then answered questions from residents. He explained the line runs across 145 miles, six of which are in Ransom Township. “What we’re trying to concentrate on here tonight,” he said, “is to make sure that everybody leaves here informed as to exactly what we’re trying to do and the measures that we’re taking to try to make the construction of the line as friendly as possible to the

“What we’re trying to concentrate on here tonight,” he said, “is to make sure that everybody leaves here informed as to exactly what we’re trying to do and the measures that we’re taking to try to make the construction of the line as friendly as possible to the residents of the township.”

residents of the township.” Project Manager and T&D Power Vice President Peter Demars explained the construction activity completed so far and currently underway includes access road construction, construction paths, foundation drilling and foundation installation. He said the workers on the project up to this point total 50-60 people, a number which will be reduced to about a third over the next couple weeks as it moves into Wayne County. “We’ll leave the founda-

tion spread, road spread and the diggers here—at least one digger—until about the end of May,” he said, “and then we’ll disappear until about the end of August. And we’ll be back then to complete structure erection, to be followed by our conductor exercise. We should complete early January, and then we’ll be out of Ransom Township. But for the summer—June, July and most of August—you won’t see us.”

Most of the questions from residents involved safety concerns regarding delivery trucks and flagmen working on the project. Tom Bergamino, of Ransom Road, expressed concern over the speed of the trucks driving past his home. “I don’t care if you run them bumper to bumper 24 hours a day,” he said. “You can make all the holes in the roads that you want, cause I’ll go around them. But a lot of these trucks that come around my corner…they’re driving that corner…they’ve got to slow down.” He said some of the drivers are good, but others go so fast he doesn’t know how they make it around the curves. Demars said he will speak to the drivers and take care of it. Kathy Rowinski, of Ran-

som Road, asked if something might be done for the safety of the flaggers. “The first flagger guy coming up the road from Keyser Avenue,” she said, “he’s going to get killed. You come up, and he’s out in the middle of the road at the right time of day and the sun’s beating at you, you don’t know he’s there.” She said not only are vehicles in danger of hitting the worker, but of hitting other vehicles that are already stopped. She suggested putting the flagger before the blind spot in the road instead of after it. Demars said safety is always a priority and he promised to alert the company’s safety team regarding the problem.

In other business, staff reports were given and correspondence discussed. It was noted the township received a letter from Meshoppen Stone Inc. advising that Scranton Materials, LLC applied for a Department of Environmental Protection Air Quality Permit to crush stone. Comments and concerns regarding the request should be directed to the DEP office in Wilkes-Barre no later than March 16. It was also noted the supervisors will soon begin interviewing auditors for the 2012 audit of township finances. The next regular supervisors meeting is scheduled for April 1.

Chinese School celebrates New Year By Joan Mead-Matsui Abington Journal Correspondent

Elementary school students donate over 250 books South Abington Elementary School students collected over 250 books to donate to underprivileged preschool children at Day Nursery Association in Scranton. The book drive was a part of the Read Accross America Week in celebration of the March 2 birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss.

Scranton Chinese School administrators Dr. Shuhua Fan and Dr. Yaodong Bi, of The University of Scranton, and Dr. Chaogui Zhang, of Marywood University, welcomed a crowd of approximately 130 children and adults to the Third Annual Chinese New Year’s Celebration on Feb. 24 at Brennan Hall on The University of Scranton campus. Chinese New Year was celebratedon Feb. 10 as Chinese people observed the arrival of the “Year of the Snake.” This year, the school’s New Year festivities were scheduled in conjunction with The Lantern Festival, traditionally held on the last day of the Spring Festival celebration, the 15th day of January on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. “In 2013, the Chinese School started its spring semester on Feb. 3,” said Dr. Fan. “Then we had Feb. 10 (Chinese New Year Day) off because some families wanted to observe the Chinese New Year and call family members in China while other families wanted to bring their kids to NYC or Philly to participate the New Year celebration in the greater Chinese communities there.” Some of the highlights of the event were the students’ talent show that featured children as young as 2 years old participating, traditional Chinese dishes prepared by families, the Dragon Dance and the “infusion and interaction of Chinese and Western cultures.” Dr. Fan said, “This is the first time we had Irish dance at our festival.”

It was also an opportunity for families with adopted children from China to share their culture and traditions, she noted. “We would like to express our appreciation to The University of Scranton administration for providing classrooms/facilities over the past three years,” said Dr. Fan. Brennan Hall is the home to the Chinese school, which was founded in 2010 to promote Chinese language literacy and cultural exchanges and to promote cultural diversity in the greater local community.

leadership in order to adopt a Personal Inclusive Excellence Leadership Philosophy. For more information about the camp, contact your high school’s guidance counselor or call Brenda Nowalis at 570.674.1483. To get an application, call 570.674.1483.

The NEPA Odyssey of the Mind Regional competition was held on Saturday, March 9 at Pocono Mountain West High School with 102 teams from across the region participating. Abington Heights had 16 teams participating in Odyssey this year with students from each school, Grades 2 – 12. The first and second-place teams will advance to the state finals, hosted by the Northezst Region at Pocono Mountain East, on Saturday, April 13 “Of our 16 teams, 14 competed yesterday and the other two, which are high school teams, will be competing next weekend at the North Central Regional tournament,” said Mary Beth Adelman, Assistant Regional Director of NEPA Odyssey of the Mind and an Abington resident. Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program with the mission of providing creative problemsolving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Students from throughout the U.S. and more than 20 other countries participate in the program. Teams are comprised of a maximum of seven students. Each team chooses one of five competitive problems to solve, some are technical while others are artistic or performanceoriented. With the guidance of an adult coach, teams work on their solutions throughout the school year and present them in the regional competition. Teams that place first and second are invited to compete at the state level. State championship teams are then invited to participate in the annual Odyssey of the Mind World Finals where they compete with teams from countries around the world. Teams are scored for their long-term problem solution and how well they solve a “spontaneous” problem on the spot. Evan Eckersley, a senior at Abington Heights High School who has participated in Odyssey since third grade, was awarded the Karl Schneck Memorial Scholarship at the competition. The scholarship is named for a man who dedicated himself to the Odyssey of the Mind program. As a coach, regional co-director, state problem captain, and world finals official, Schneck embodied the spirit of creativity and positive attitude that drives Odyssey of the Mind. To reward students who

think outside the box while solving problems in Odyssey of the Mind and in everyday life and to honor Schneck’s memory, a scholarship is awarded each year to a senior from the Northeast Pennsylvania region. “Competition day is always an exciting event,” Adelman said. “It is great to see the enthusiasm, the energy and the outstanding creativity of our kids! I’m also very proud of the way the teams support each other, handle difficulties that arise, such as props not fitting through the doorways, or falling down during the performance and help out where they see a need. Through Odyssey, kids develop life skills, such has public speaking, team work, creative problem solving and time management, all while having fun!” Following are the results for the Abington Heights teams that will advance to the states:

mers. “We have been very actively involved in monitoring the pool, not just since concerns were raised,” he said. Mahon added that the district is considering purchasing an evacuator for the pool, which would remove high concentrations of airborne chloramines in the area directly above the pool water surface, reducing the smell of chloramines. According to Mahon, over the past year, the district spent about $19,000 in upgrades to the system. “It may well have been that our system was running at a sub-optimal level,” he said.

ACOG discusses COSTARS By EMILy CULLEy Abington Journal Correspondent

Municipal happenings were the main topic of conversation at the monthly Abington Council of Governments (ACOG) meeting. Clarks Summit councilman and ACOG vice president Patrick Williams reported that Clarks Summit’s fire department and department of public works have enrolled in the COSTARS program which enables municipal vehicles to save on gasoline prices at participating stations. He stated that Clarks Green should save, “a considerable amount.” Fellow Clarks Summit Councilman added that the program “is a good checks and balances system for the borough. We’ll know much fuel is being used and who’s See ACOG, Page 12 Mahon added that the goal is to continue to have the pool available to the community on a limited basis along with the Abington Gators and Abington Heights swim teams. “The problems arise largely when we have hour after hour of practice,” he said. “We’re well on the way of trying to get a handle on this, but still have a way to go. We recognize there are very legitimate concerns and we’re taking a cautious approach. “We need to look at the options that are available and the costs associated with them to come up with a really good solution that makes good sense for everybody involved.”

‘Seniors of the Sahara’

Sylvia Goldberg, a respectable retired New Jersey school teacher, brings home more than just souvenirs upon returning from her grandson’s wedding in Israel in Actors Circle “Seniors of the Sahara.” In the romantic comedy by Barbara Pease Weber and directed by Art Walsh, Sylvie’s troubles begin when she realizes that the old teapot she purchased at an outdoor market is actually a priceless relic containing a geriatric genie “Eugene” with a bad back and a penchant for vodka and V8. Keeping Eugene a secret from her three best friends, Mabel, Thelma and Fannie, proves to be nearly as difficult as protecting herself from Eugene’s former master who follows Sylvie home and threatens her at knife point. The cast includes George Cosmetis, Jeff Ginsberg, Lorrie Loughney, Betsy Seaforth, Casey Thomas, Cathy Rist Strauch, and Regina yeager. “Seniors of the Sahara,” presented at at Providence Playhouse, 1256 Providence Rd. in Scranton, aims to be a magical romantic comedy for seniors and “juniors” of all ages.

A.H. students to perform a classic musical By Arielle KovAlich Abington Journal Correspondent

Abington Heights High School students have been hard at work preparing for their upcoming spring musical. After approximately 10 weeks worth of practice and rehearsal time from the students, ‘The Sound of Music’ will be ready for the school’s stage beginning March 15. A group of approximately 50 actors and 30 crew members from the high school have been working together under the direction of Zach Monahan. Monahan, 29, of Clarks Summit has taken on the role of drama and technical director as well as the producer for the play. ‘The Sound of Music’ is the fifth show Monahan has directed and produced at the school. Along with juggling his duties for the school plays, Monahan is in his seventh year as an

English teacher for the high school. Assisting with the production of the play this year is musical director Dr. Susan Kelly and choreographer Nick Lazor. Among some of the student crew members is Marikay Vanfleet, a sophomore who has been given the role of costume designer for the musical. Vanfleet helped with costumes in last year’s play by selecting costumes pieces and creating some of her own. Monahan commented on the efforts of the costume designer, “She has a passion for it, she makes a lot of her own clothes.” The large amount of student cast members has allowed Monahan to double cast seven lead roles for the two performances. The double cast is allowing the two separate performances to have a different set of lead role students

A set of eight bright and colorful picture books for PreK – Grade 3 children, “Story Time with Signs and Rhymes,� is a brand new addition at the Abington Community Library. The books offer a variety of rhythmic, playful stories for read-aloud fun. American Sign Language (ASL) signs are incorporated into the book design, inviting children to sign along with the story. The result is a literacy-based, fingerplay experience that not only engages children but teaches elementary signing. Reviewers have noted that, “The signs are well chosen for the target audience and the structure of the stories provides a great way to introduce and reinforce basic ASL vocabulary for hearing children.� The stories are complemented with several ideas for activities and games to play with children, plus a full page of the alphabet handshapes used by ASL. The series was written by Dawn Babb Prochovnic and illustrated by Stephanie Bauer. Look for the following titles in the children’s picture book area: “A to Z Sign with Me: Sign Language for the Alphabet;� “Four Seasons! Five Senses! – Sign Language for the Seasons and Senses;� “Hip, Hip, Hooray! It’s Family Day! – Sign Language for Family;� “One Trick for One Treat: Sign Language for Numbers;� “Opposites Everywhere: Sign Language for Opposites;� “Shape Detective: Sign Language for Shapes;� “So Many Feelings: Sign Language for Feelings and Emotions;� “There’s a Story in My Head: Sign Language for Body Parts.� NOTE: The library just received a copy of the IRS publication, “Reproducible Copies for Federal Forms and Instructions.� The library’s copy machines are available to patrons; copies are 10 cents each. Ask for the binder at the Circulation Desk. Forms can also be accessed online at either on library computers for 15 cents each or at home. The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W.

Second Friday Art Walk livens up March in C.S

By Joan Mead-Matsui Abington Journal Correspondent

Briana Rose Eagen, 17, of Waverly, a junior at Foxcroft School, Middleburg, Virginia, has a strong belief in helping other women. As part of a service project in fulfillment of the Loudoun Chapter of the NLJC Debutante Program, Eagen crafted “no sew blankets” made from a variety of fleece fabric purchased from a fabric store. She then donated 25 blankets to the “Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS),” also known as “Loudoun Citizens for Social Justice,” a private nonprofit in Loudoun County, VA. The shelter serves domestic violence and sexual assault survivors and offers free and confidential services to enable its residents to live their lives free from fear, anxiety and danger. “I was aware women and teenagers are at risk for abuse,” said Eagen, who enlisted the help of members of the debutante program, Marshals (young men who escorted them) and Foxcroft classmates and teachers. She also worked with Ms. Sheila McKibbin, assistant head of school, to coordinate the project with Foxcroft School. Eagen solicited the collection of donations, coordinated the project with LAWS and created an event to present the blankets to the shelter, which culminated on Nov. 3 at Foxcroft School Library. “I had my Debutante Ball on Nov. 30. As part of becoming a Debutante, I had to do a service project. My debutante director, Jean Ann Michie, focused on the importance of giving back and finding causes that need our help and that we are passionate about. I wanted to do a project for a group that really needed a service and support and enjoy working with both the elderly and children. I realized this would be a wonderful project as it would help battered women, their children and would help to educate my debutante class, classmates and teachers.” Eagen defined the term “debutante” as “finding yourself as a woman while helping others… becoming a woman and appreciating and being comfortable to be a lady with good etiquette and respect for yourself and others at all times. “It taught me old-fashioned values and gave me an experience that hardly exists today,” she said Eagen received additional support from the Abington Community, including her neighbors back home, family and friends and the Abington Heights Civic League, Inc. (AHCL, Inc.), of which which her mother, Gretchen, is a member. “I made arrangements with Emily Nalls, Teen Violence Prevention Program Coordinator for Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, to be the presenter,” said Eagen. The blankets were a combination of patterns appropriate and fun for children and solid bright colors, noted Eagen, who further described the blankets as, “One side had a pattern and the other a solid color. We cut them large enough to be a lap blanket and snuggle in. They are known as no-sew blankets.’”

performing on each night. Monahan commented on double cast, “I’m excited to see the differences that both casts kind of bring to it,” Monahan continued, “I think it’s exciting for the community to even come both nights to see, in a way, two different sets of kids perform and have their own unique interpretation of the material.” The producer commented on choosing ‘The Sound of Music’ for this spring’s performance, “We felt that with the group of students that we had this year, they would be kind of excited to do one of these old-fashioned stories and they would be able to do it justice.”

He also shared his excitement about working with his cast, “They really are all very talented vocally.” Student cast member Natalie Belknap, a senior at Abington Heights, will be performing as ‘Brigitta’ in both nights of the performance. The student actress has been a part of the school’s performances all four years of her high school career. “I like that it’s two casts,” Belknap said, “It’s really fun because it’s like you get to react to different people playing the same character.” ‘The Sound of Music’ will be performed at 7 p.m. March 15 and 16 at the Abington Heights High School. Tickets will be available at the box office, both nightsat 6 p.m. The cost will be $8 for adults and $5 for seniors and students.

She added,“The blankets don’t solve their problems but helps to ease them. It gives their children comfort, it gives them something to hold on to and helps them feel safe and that someone cares. Therefore, their moms can also feel a bit better, knowing their children are comforted.” Eagen’s hobbies include singing, acting, dance, softball, basketball, skiing, rock climbing, photography, Theatre Club, Girl Scouts, Whip (11th grade dorm leader), school ambassador and community service.

Exhibits are welcome as long as they have an earth-friendly or environmental theme. Thoseparticipating in the flea market will need to provide their own table and tent. ACOG President and Ransom Township Supervisor Dennis Macheska reported on the progress of the Rosland power line, indicating that PP&L is currently renting property from the township as a staging area for the power line project that is estimated to take three years.

“I love fashion, singing and working with the elderly and children,” she added. Jean Michie, director of Loudoun Chapters, National League of Junior Cotillions, Purcellville, VA, said of Eagen’s role as a Debutante, “As director of the Loudoun Chapter of the NLJC Debutante Program, I was very fortunate to have Brianna Eagen as one of the 2012 debutantes. Brianna Eagen has shown that she is not only a beautiful young lady in a white ball gown who can be presented; she has also shown that she is a young woman of passion and integrity.” Rick Williams, chairman of the Clarks Green Shade Commission, commented on Clarks Green’s problem with advertising signs being placed on public property, such as telephone poles or on the front lawns of homes and asked if other communities have the same problem. Most agreed that it is a problem and stated the rule is permits are required for signs and they must be removed a week after the event they are advertising. ACOG members also discussed possible speakers who could speak on rain barrels, alternative energy suppliers and solar power. ACOG meets at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month at the Clarks Green Borough Building.

Lackawanna College establishes Community Opportunity Scholarships

Lackawanna College announces the creation of the Lackawanna College Community Opportunity Scholarships in an effort to continue to provide affordable, high quality educational opportunities to the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania. These full tuition scholarships, 18 in all, are for commuter students hailing from Lackawanna, Wayne, Pike and Wyoming counties. Scholarships will be awarded based on the applicant’s academic potential, involvement in extracurricular activities and other

Lackawanna County Commissioners Jim Wansacz, Corey D. O’Brien and Patrick M. O’Malley announced that grants for arts and cultural projects and programs in all municipalities are available until the end of this December. The $500 grants can be used for arts, music, concerts or community-based projects. Local artists are encouraged to speak to their respective municipal leaders about potential projects that need to be done in their communities. Municipalities can collabo-

rate on a venture and pool their resources to complete a largescale project that will cover a wider area and serve more citizens. The application letter must include a contact person’s name, title, telephone number and email address. Application letters should be submitted at least three weeks before the start of the project. Grant funds cannot be used to cover fund raising events, religious activities, art therapy projects, equipment or food purchases.

A Factoryville Library book sale was sponsored March 2 by the Keystone College Service Club and Winner’s Circle Club. Proceeds from the event will benefit the library. Books were donated from a library in New York City that was closing. The books were sold at a deep discount, $1 each. Dianna Varady, a Keystone freshman who helped coordinate the event, said they were pleased with the steady stream of visitors.

Applications for the Community Opportunity Scholarships must be received by June 1, 2013, and include the application form along with a personal essay that details why the applicant is deserving of the award and how this scholarship will impact his/her future endeavors. Application forms, detailed instructions and full eligibility requirements can be accessed at, or by calling the Admissions Department at 570-961-7814.

At each event, a judge would grade the scouts on their performance and give them a score. The sled team with the most points at the end would then be titled the winner. The snow may have discouraged some, but it did not stop Troop 160 from having a lot of fun at the derby. Feb. 10 was Troop 16o’s Scout Sunday. On this day, we give thanks to our sponsoring church, The United Methodist Church, by attending and participating in a service. This church has allowed us to utilize one of their main rooms as our meeting room for numerous years. We happily partake in this service to express our gratitude toward the church. The Boy Scouts opened the service with Scout pledges and a responsive reading. Afterward, the Boy Scouts were invited to have some snacks in the church’s fellowship hall. The United Methodist Church is very important to Troop 160. We like to show our appreciation whenever we can. Remember a Scout is reverent. Tyler VanGorder has the rank of Eagle in Boy Scout Troop 160 from Clarks Summit. He is a junior at Abington Heights High School. For more information, visit

Comets crush Braves By Tom RoBinson For The Abington Journal

SCRANTON – Abington Heights attacked Shikellamy from every angle Friday night, combining accurate 3-point shooting with the ability to get to the rim. When it was over, the District 2 champion Comets provided more evidence of their potential to contend on the state level by advancing to the second round of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AAA boys basketball tournament with a 67-37 rout of the Braves at the Lackawanna College Student Union. Jamie Egan led the incredible shooting night by hitting all five of his attempts, including four from 3-point range, while topping a balanced attack with 14 points. Egan opened the fourth quarter by assisting baskets from T.J. Murray, J.C. Show and Kevin Elwell in the first 1:10. He then headed for the bench, beginning a parade of Abington Heights substitutions with the Comets in front, 58-25. “We worked really hard to get that lead and to get everyone on the bench some time,” said Egan, who finished with five assists. “It was a fun game to get everyone in there.” The players waited in the locker room after the game for coach Ken Bianchi to arrive so they could celebrate his 650th career victory. The Comets, who were scheduled to continue in the second round Tuesday night against Philadelphia Electric in Bethlehem, can expect the challenges to become significantly tougher from here. “Every game, we have to improve,” Egan said. “It gets tougher and tougher.” Getting through the first round was not difficult for long. Shikellamy’s only lead came when Ernie Tyler, who scored a team-high 15 points, hit a 3-pointer on the team’s first possession. Egan answered 20 seconds later, then Murray converted a three-point play and Elwell hit a 3-point shot to put the Comets ahead to stay, 9-3. Abington Heights scored the last five points of the first quarter, including another 3-pointer by Elwell with a second left, for an 18-10 lead. The Comets turned the game into a blowout by outscoring the Braves, 31-4, from one minute into the second quarter until two minutes remained in the third. Show started the stretch with a long 3-pointer and Egan ended it with another for a 51-18 lead. “We moved the ball around real well, got open shots and I just See COMETS, Page 14A made them; every-

Prep girls advance in tourney By RoB TomKAVAGE

SCRANTON- With the game tied at 40-all entering the fourth quarter, Scranton Prep guard Danielle Dalessandro knew she needed to step up her game or risk having the Classics be eliminated from the state playoffs. Dalessandro did just that, scoring seven points, grabbing five rebounds and picking up two key steals in the quarter to led Scranton Prep to a 60-57 victory over Southern Lehigh in a firstround PIAA Class AAA girls contest March 9 at Marywood University. “It’s the first round of the state tournament, so in the fourth quarter you just have to give it your all and leave everything on the court,” Dalessandro said. “If you lose, go home and think about what you could have done, you probably won’t be able to sleep.” Dalessandro epitomized those words when she dove out of bounds to save a ball off a missed free throw in the final minutes. The senior drained a 3-pointer to start Prep’s 13-3 run to begin the fourth quarter, giving Prep a 41-32 lead with 2:55 left in the game. “The 3-pointer boosted my confidence and everything came together at that point,” Dalessandro said. Southern Lehigh rattled off eight straight points in just 24 seconds to cut Prep’s lead to 5452 with 1:57 left in the game. Classics junior guard Tricia Byrne, who had a game-high 24 points, including the 1,000th of her career during the first minute of the game, scored 10 points and grabbed two rebounds in the third quarter that was capped by a nifty up and under layup in the final seconds. “We came out with a rough start so we had to come out in the second half a little bit stronger,” Byrne said. Scranton Prep head coach Ross Macciocco believes the team got back to basics in the third quarter. “We came out and executed and that’s how we got the lead,” he said. Despite making just 9 of 18 free throws in the fourth quarter, the Classics hung on for the victory. “Overall, the girls didn’t quit,” Macciocco said. “I thought we played tough and physical for four quarters. Of course, at the end of the game, foul shooting would have made it a little bit easier for us.” Brianna Prince See PREP, Page 14A

Bowling is right up the mayor’s alley By BEn FREdA Abington Journal Correspondent

Bruce Smallacombe, who has been serving as the mayor of Jermyn for the past 12 years, got to perform his bowling skills at the PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) Masters tournament in New Brunswick, New Jersey on February 18. He played against

many professional bowlers, such as Jason Couch and Walter Ray Williams. “It truly is an honor to be considered good enough to bowl with the likes of Norm Duke, Pete Weber, and Parker Bohn,” said Smallacombe. Smallacombe was eliminated in the third round of the qualifying

match, but he found the tournament to be a learning experience. He said that he learned that every lane has a different oil pattern, which results in the way the ball hooks down the lane. He also mentioned that the pro bowlers

Rose M. Schreiber March 6, 2013

Rose M. Schreiber, 98, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2013 in Scranton. Born on February 21, 1915, Rose was the daughter of Simon and Anna Gazdik. She was a longtime resident of Olean, N.Y., where she grew up alongside her sister Mary Gazdik Mishanec and brothers Joe and Sam Gazdik. After graduating from Olean High School, Rose worked for the Olean City School District. In 1939, she married the late Jim Schreiber and thereafter raised their two daughters Anne and Jean in Olean. After Jim passed away in 1976, Rose moved to St. Petersburg, Fla., where she lived close to Anne for nearly 25 years. In 2001, Rose moved to the Scranton area to live close to Jean, residing at Wesley Village in Pittston and then Allied Terrace in Scranton.

Rose was a devout Catholic and dedicated her life to her family and friends. Ballroom dancing, bingo and playing cards with her friends were her favorite activities. She is survived by her two daughters Anne (Paul) Pursae of Clearwater, Fla. and Jean Preston (Joe Piazza) of Clarks Summit; three grandchildren Jeff Pursae of Clearwater, Fla., Maura Preston of Wayne and Casey (Erin) Preston of Berwyn; three great-grandchildren Will, Abigail Rose and Janie Preston; as well as several nieces and nephews.

The Comets allowed the Braves just five rebounds in the first half while leading 24-12 on the boards for the game. “Our big men did real well on defense, got points inside and got us rebounds,” Egan said. Murray had 11 points while Elwell had 10, along with four assists. Bamford led with nine rebounds and two blocked shots while Nathan Hollander had three steals. “They’re the fourth-ranked team in the state for a reason,” Foor said.

The Comets then opened the second half with a 14-2 advantage helped by two of Egan’s 3-pointers. “They were better than us in every way,” Shikellamy coach Tim Foor said. ”They were bigger and stronger and they shot the ball very well.” Abington Heights went 9-for-15 (60 percent) on 3-pointers and 17-for-23 (73.9 percent) from inside the arc with the help of dunks by Jason

Allied Services plans 20th annual 2013 Lexus Autism Golf Classic

The planning committee for the 2013 Allied Services Heinz Rehab Annual Autism Classic met recently to plan the 20th annual tournament, which will be held on Monday, June 10 at the Huntsville Golf Club in Lehman, PA with presenting sponsor Lexus MotorWorld. Proceeds will be used to treat pediatric patients with diagnoses on the autism spectrum disorder. Most autism services are not fully covered by insurance, and Allied Services Heinz Rehab Hospital provides critical rehab services for pediatric patients without regard to their parents’ ability to pay.

Over the past 19 years, over $900,000 has been raised through this tournament. For the first nine years, event proceeds supported augmentative communication devices for developmentally challenged children. For the past 11 years all proceeds have supported Autism rehab services, as well as for pragmatic social groups serving children with Autism throughout the region. One such group is Parents and Professionals, which was founded by the parent of a child with autism and his therapist at Heinz Rehab, and sponsors sports, social events and an annual trip to the

Miners names new head coach Last season, the Miners returned to prominence in the semi-pro football ranks with a 9-3 season, earning a playoff spot and building a foundation for even greater expectations in 2013. Leading the Miners to meet those expectations will be a new leader. Gary Haase has stepped down as Head Coach to focus on family and will be taking on a different role with the Miners to be determined. Coach Darrin McDowell becomes the fourth Head Coach as the Miners enter the seventh season in Northeastern Pennsyl-

vania. McDowell was preceeded by team founder Dan LaMagna in 2007, 2008, Donnie JacksonBey in 2009 before he took a position at West Side High School, LaMagna again in 2010 and 2011 before Haase stepped in last season. McDowell joined the NEPA Miners in 2012 as the team’s Quarterbacks Coach and the team’s first Recruiting Coordinator, two areas in which the NEPA Miners shined and led the Miners to their best overall record in six seasons.

bowlers have coaches to tell them how the balls hook in each lane. “I learned that I need better equipment, and I need somebody there that can help tell you how the lanes change,” he said. Smallacombe played against 468 bowlers, and the top 64 advanced to the finals. He bowled a 700 series with the scores: 243 in Game 1; 221 in Game 2; 236 in Game 3. “It’s a learning experience and it’s tough to advance,” he said. “Now I know I can advance,” he said. Smallacombe said that he will try the tournament again next year. He also mentioned that during the tournament, he met new people, made new friends, and received autographs, which were signed in his PBA yearbook by PBA bowlers. “I took a brand new bowling pin with me, and got it autographed with all the names that I think is a memento to hand down to my grandson,” he said. “I’m looking forward to doing it again, and going to the senior tour.” Smallacombe was invited to the PBA Masters tournament because he scored an average of 220 or higher for the past five years in the Carbondale commercial leagues and the Archbald commercial leagues, which were held in Valley Lanes in Childs. He bowled two nights a week in these leagues since 1982. He wore the same bowling shirt from 1982 during the tournament. T & D Power, where he works during the day, sponsored him to go to the tournament. Smallacombe bowled with his father when he was a kid. He bowled in Valley Lanes, Idle Hour Lanes, and Wallenpaupack Lanes. As a bowler, Smallacombe bowled six perfect games, and won awards in bowling, such as high game, high series, and sportsmanship of the year. He also won a lot of league cham-

pionships. He also bowled in the national team tournament in Syracuse in 1999 and in 2001, Knoxville, with PBA bowler D.J. Archer. Smallacombe was a league secretary/treasurer of Carbondale and Archbald commercial leagues. He was the vice-president of the Northeast PA Bowling Association about a few years ago. He was in the board of directors of the Northeast PA Bowling Association. Smallacombe has a wife Patty, two sons, Mark and Bruce, Jr, and a grandson Hunter Smallacombe (son of Bruce Smallacombe, Jr.). He passes his love of bowling to his sons, who are currently in youth leagues. He hopes to someday teach his grandson bowling. Smallacombe will be running for a 4th term as mayor of Jermyn in the May primary. He is involved in many clubs and organizations. “I enjoy it,” he said. “I like doing a lot for the community. I started in the public events committee, the business association, and the historical society.” Smallacombe is a member of the Lions Club, and a member of Masonic Lodge in Jermyn Aurora Lodge 523. He sometimes attends crime watch meetings, and helps with the National Night Out. He also started the annual Christmas concert. He also sings in the variety show at the Jermyn Community Center in May. He sang with the Jeffrey James Band last year. He also helps coordinate the Concert in the Park in July. He also speaks at the Jermyn Cub Scouts Blue Gold Dinner and the Jermyn Awards Dinner. Aside from bowling, Smallacombe enjoys other sports as well. In fact, he coaches baseball, basketball, and football. He hopes to someday coach bowling. “59 (age 59), and I still keep playing,” he quipped. “They are going to have to drag me off the field and off the bowling alley. I’m going to bowl until I can’t bowl.”
