AN EDITION OF THE TIMES LEADER

Charles Lemmond Community Spirit Award established

The Dallas Post will recognize a member of the Back Mountain community in memory of the late senator. The Dallas Post announces the establishment of the Charles D. Lemmond Jr. Community Spirit Award. The award, named after the former senator who passed away in 2012, will recognize a resident of the Back Mountain for his or her leadership and advancement of community spirit. Readers of The Dallas Post will vote for the person they believe would be an appropriate recipient of this award.

A ballot appears on page 16 of today’s paper. Entries must be returned to The Dallas Post by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 3. The Charles D. Lemmond Lemmond Jr. Community Spirit Award honors those who endeavor to improve the lives of Back Mountain residents through outstanding community service, public service or philanthropy and embody Senator Lemmond’s commitment to doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reason.

Charles D. Lemmond Jr. (19292012) called the Back Mountain home for more than 50 years. Through his constant and active involvement in a wide range of community groups, he touched many lives, gave a sense of direction and responsibility to numerous improvement projects and served as an inspiration to countless individuals. As a soldier, solicitor, prosecutor, judge and legislator, Lemmond demonstrated a strong devotion to civic duty. His 21 years as a well-respected state Senator were marked by his standard of integrity, his pursuit of justice and his desire to do what was right for the

people and the community he served. Numerous Back Mountain organizations benefitted by Lemmond’s leadership. He was an enthusiast of the Back Mountain Memorial Library Auction and helped secure funding for the expansion of the children’s wing. As a 33rd Degree Mason, member of the Caldwell Consistory and George M. Dallas Lodge 531 and as potentate of the Nobility of Irem Shriners, he was dedicated to caring for children in need. One of his proudest legislative accomplishments was a law he authored requiring hearing screenings for newborns.

Ross students win state awards for handwriting

A friend of education, Lemmond supported scholarships for Dallas and Lake-Lehman High School students through his involvement with the Dallas American Legion Post 672. He was a lifetime trustee at Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School and long-time alumni interviewer for his alma mater, Harvard University. As a member of the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Advisory Board, he worked on numerous campus improvements, including the state-of-the-art Nesbitt Library.

hat are the odds that three students from Ross Elementary School in Sweet Valley would come up with three state awards in handwriting? There were about 285,000 contest entries this year, according to school principal Donald James and a representative from Zaner –Bloser, the educational materials company that has coordinated the contest for the last 22 years. The odds are 3 out of 285,000. See WRITE, Page 5

Volunteer job not physical but very important If you’re looking to do some volunteer work but can’t handle anything strenuous, Janet Bauman has just the job for you. Bauman, the children’s librarian at the Back Mountain Memorial Library, will set you up with a dishpan full of soapy water and a pair of rubber gloves and you can provide the library with a much-needed service - washing the covers of children’s books. June Jones and Rita Rusnak were long-time volunteers at the library who not only washed book covers but also sanitized toys used in the Parent/Child

Workshops. Both women are in their late 80s, however, and have stepped down from their volunteer positions. “These women would sit and wipe down the children’s books,” Bauman said. “We would then air out the books and put them

back on the shelves.” Volunteers are needed once a week for this job and, although they can pretty much choose the times they’d like to work, mornings in the children’s section at the library can be quite hectic. “For anyone looking to be a volunteer, this is a great job because there’s no physical aspect to it,” Bauman said. “It gives the volunteers someplace to go and somebody to talk to. It’s a social thing.” Anyone interested in volunteering for this job is asked to call Bauman at 675-1182.

Michael Novrocki knows the exhilaration of winning a History Day competition. He’s done it a few times. Now, the Lake-Lehman history teacher is guiding his students so that they, too, might experience the same feeling. For the 14th consecutive year, LakeLehman High School has won the Outstanding School Award, Senior Division, at the Regional History Day Contest. Ten of those wins have come with Novrocki at the helm. The award is presented to the high school in the region that achieves the most winning entries. Lake-Lehman High School won a total of 11 awards this year - four first-place awards, four second-place awards and three thirdplace awards, as well as the Outstanding Entry in Local History Award - at the March 23 competition held at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. Students researched topics related to the annual theme, “Turning Points in History: People, Places and Ideas,” and produced either media documentaries, tabletop exhibits or drama performances. Twenty-three students from LakeLehman High School qualified to compete in the state competition, which will be held from May 3-4 at Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg. Novrocki, who has been History Day coordinator at Lake-Lehman since being hired as a history teacher in 2003, first won a regional History Day competition as a sophomore at Wyoming Valley West High School in 1987. He teamed up with fellow classmate Scott Stefanides that year to win a first-place award in the group documentary category for a presentation on coal mining. The next year, Novrocki and Stefanides took a project about Father Joseph Murgas all the way to a firstplace national History Day award in the group documentary category. Their presentation argued how Father Murgas invented the first workable system of overland wireless telegraphy. Their classmate Shaun McAndrew also won a first-place national History Day award in the individual documentary category that same year, marking what Novrocki believes is the first and only time students from the same high school won national History Day awards in the same year. Their History Day mentor at the time was Mary Jean Tarantini, now retired and residing in Harveys Lake Borough with her husband, David. “She is the reason I am doing what See HISTORY Page 5

In Act Two, the audience becomes the jury in the biggest trial in fairytale history. The e Big Bad Wolf goes on trial and the courtroom has never been so lively and fun. Two of the greatest

legal minds duel it out, including Ms. Fare E. Stepmom and Ms Eva L. Stepma. Notorious older Big Bad Wolf has finally been slapped with a class action lawsuit by quirky characters who want to get even, including the now grown-up Red Hood, who is president and CEO of her own NYC Baking Company, along with Grandma Hood, four insane pigs, angry shepherds and the many-personality Boy Who Cried Wolf. But can Dr. L.M. Muffet pull it off for Wolf as the expert psychiatrist witness? The whole trial is covered on air by the slick news commentator and reporter Sydney Grimm and it will all end with the audience deciding the wolf’s fate - guilty, innocent or hung jury. At which point in time will the talented actors launch into one of three different endings to this tale? You never know what might happen.

Second row, Jasmine Moku as Judge Wise Old Woman, Katelyn Sincavage as Grown up Red and Aleah Ashton as Little Red.

et’s face it. No one enjoys going to the dentist. But while Dr. James D. Definnis of Back Mountain Dental acknowledges that fact, he hopes his patients can enjoy their visits. Dr. Definnis and his staff strive to make that happen by putting the patients “at ease” with friendly conversations, by getting to know them and joking around when appropriate. His practice avoids implementing a strict “white lab coat approach” to care. Definnis’s favorite parts of the job, he said, are “the patient care and delivering the smiles people have always dreamed of having.” He added that his whole team enjoys developing relationships with the patients and while they take dentistry seriously, they don’t take themselves seriously. Back Mountain Dental focuses on three categories of dentistry: Cosmetic dentistry, which includes services such as whitening; Veneers, a thin layer of material placed on a tooth’s surface to protect a damaged tooth or for aesthetic purposes; and Invisalign, which helps straighten teeth without the “metal mouth” look of traditional braces. Sedation dentistry, which is for patients who may need more extensive dental work after years of neglect because of a phobia of visiting the dentist. Definnis said most patients who come in for sedation dentistry eventually transition into traditional care once they are more at ease. General dentistry, which includes services such as cleanings and normal fillings (white fillings exclusively).

Supervisors discussed changes to county roads and the township park at their April 2 work session. Police Chief Robert Jolley told supervisors about his concerns over vandalism and improper use of the Dallas Township Park. Jolley said there had been complaints about people in the park at night after the park had closed. And Roadmaster Martin Barry said there has been vandalism to park property as recently as last week. Barry proposed a change of access to the park that might alleviate the problems. He asked that the township close the park entrance on Sago Jolley said Street so that all ve- there had hicular traffic would been comenter the park via plaints about Southside Avenue. people in Supervisors agreed to the plan the park at and asked Tom night after Doughton who rep- the park had resents the townclosed. ship’s engineering firm of Douglas F, Trombower and Associates to look into obtaining the necessary permits. Supervisors also okayed the construction of a turnaround at the far end of Kingswood Drive. A small lot at the end of the street was sold to the township for $1 and this will allow the township to create a turnaround for service vehicles and snow plows. Supervisors decided against adding an emulsion to Goldsmith Road, citing cost and possible environmental impact as the two reasons for their decision. Vice-Chairman Liz Martin asked her fellow supervisors for a go-ahead to research either renovating or building a new township building. She cited problems with the present building, including insufficient space and possible safety issues. Martin noted that Pittston recently received a $1 million grant from gaming monies and that part of the funds would be used for a municipal building. “I don’t want to incur any debt,” she added. After discussion, the other supervisors agreed it was a good plan to pursue. The creation of a township towing plan was also discussed. Supervisors would like for interested companies to submit their ideas for creating a township towing plan, citing similar plans in other Luzerne County municipalities. Supervisors opened bids for the use of waste containers for the 2013 Spring Cleanup on May 6-11. Waste Reduction, Recycling and Transfer, Inc. of Wilkes-Barre was the winning bidder with a total of $13,475 for dumpsters needed for the cleanup and recycling activity. Bids were also opened for paving materials. Because there were multiple line items with no one vendor offering the lowest bids on all, bids will be reviewed and accepted at the next township meeting.

I’m doing now,” Novrocki said of Tarantini, who was affectionately known as “Ms” to her History Day students. “I take everything she taught me and put it into practice.” The bigggest difference Novrocki has made in History Day preparation at Lake-Lehman is the institution of a school-level contest, something he learned from Tarantini. In those contests, the higher levels of competition are replicated with three judges doing the questioning and interviewing. After that school-level contest, the best projects move on to regional competition. “History Day provides students with an incredible level of self confidence,” Novrocki said. “There are no strict guidelines. They only have to adhere to a national theme but they shape and build their projects. They become masters of their topics.” Despite all that History Day

During the month of January, students in grades 1-6 at Ross participated in the National Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Contest. Teachers selected one winner from each grade level. Those entries were then submitted to Zaner Bloser. The school won an award in 2009 but James is very surprised to have three students win this year. None of this matters to 7-yearold Sarah Bednarek. “Its fun writing as neat as you can - perfect,” purrs the pert first-grader, who won one of the awards. “I’m sometimes nervous but try not to shake my hand - ever.” Karlee Kreller, a third-grade winner, gets very involved in the process. “I love looping the letters. (Her favorites are “L” or “M”). It’s like a habit. I love it so much. A lot better than math or science; it’s relaxing,” she said. Kreller’s teacher, Jeremy Williams, spends 15 minutes to a half an hour three times a week on handwriting and finds that students with good penmanship are generally good writers and like to take time to compose and write their essays. This year’s contest essay question “How does your handwriting make you a better reader and writer and why is that important?” was succinctly

ment to learning was proven by Misericordia University in the naming of its campus performing arts center as the Lemmond Theater and by Wilkes University which awarded him an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. His faith kept him active with the Dallas United Methodist Church, the Wyoming Conference of United Methodist Churches and the Back Mountain Men’s Ecumenical Breakfast which he co-founded. For more than 30 years, Lemmond and his family hosted the Naylor/Lemmond Memorial Community Thanksgiving Dinner which brought holiday warmth and cheer to thousands of area residents. He especially enjoyed his service on the Commission on Economic Opportunity’s Board of Directors and took seriously its motto of “People Helping People.” The Salvation

answered by one of the contestants at the school with “So if I write a book, they’ll be able to read it.’ But the act of handwriting itself has taken a back seat to banging out stories on keyboards and into Ipads and IPods. This is in stark contrast to the days in the last century when penmanship was one of the basic “Rs” s in reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic and was taught every day in school. Then, teachers used to have penmanship contests. Now, they are considering having students take the PSSA state evaluation tests on computers rather than on paper with pencils. James thinks it’s only a matter of time “before technology will make handwriting obsolete.” Andrew Jubis, the sixth-grade winner at the school, doesn’t think about that much. “Sometimes I print, sometimes I write or type. I don’t really think about it,” he said. “This is my last year in this school and I’m trying to make it the best year. I’m proud. The kids cheered for me when they heard I won the prize.” The three winning students received an engraved medallion, the student’s teacher received an engraved glass diamond and the school received a $200 gift certificate to Zaner Bloser for each student. The winning entries will compete at the national level and be notified of the results in May.

The award will recognize a resident of the Back Mountain for his or her leadership and advancement of community spirit. Army also benefitted from his good works where he was well known for his support of its annual kettle drive and was once honored as Citizen of the Year. His impact on the quality of life of the region can also be seen through projects such as the Back Mountain Trail, the Back Mountain Recreation Facility, the Charles D. Lemmond Jr. Community Playground and safety enhancements to State Route 309, the Back Mountain’s main business corridor. Sen. Lemmond died Wednesday, May 30, 2012, at the age of 83. He is survived by his wife, Barbara; sons, Charles, John and David; daughter, Judith; brother, George; and four grandchildren.

offers to students, Novrocki is concerned that academic contests at public schools are being threatened with budget cuts. “Funding is harder and harder to come by,” he said. “The number of participating schools and the number of projects presented at the regional level is much lower than it was two or three years ago. It concerns me as a public school teacher to think

that academic contests may become available only to private schools.” Novrocki added that LakeLehman is one of the few public schools to continue participation in History Day competition and reported that administrators are already talking about how to overcome budget cuts to allow students to continue participating in academic contests.

Winterbotham would play a decisive role in the World War II Ultra code-breaking project, enabling British intelligence to intercept top-secret messages (even from Hitler) transmitted to and between German armed forces. * On April 21, 1930, a fire at an Ohio prison kills 320 inmates, some of whom burn to death when they are not unlocked from their cells. The prison, built to hold 1,500 people, housed 4,300 prisoners at the time of the fire. * On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson, age 28, becomes the first black player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, N.Y., to compete for the Dodgers. Baseball had been segregated for more than 50 years.

The History Channel * On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere and William Dawes set out on horseback from Boston to warn leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching on Concord on a mission to confiscate the Massachusetts militia arsenal and capture Adams and Hancock. * On April 19, 1876, a Wichita, Kan., commission votes not to rehire policeman Wyatt Earp after he beats up a candidate for county sheriff. Earp’s Remington pistol made an effective club: Whenever possible, he preferred to pistol-whip his opponents rather than shoot them. * On April 16, 1897, Frederick Winterbotham, one of Brit-

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver * It was pioneering British director of suspense films Alfred Hitchcock who made the following sage observation: “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.” * If you’re an arachnophobe, you probably don’t want to know that a tarantula can live for up to two years without eating a single thing. * If you’re like the average American man with a job, you spend 8 minutes per day cooking. If you’re like the average American woman who works, you spend 50 minutes a day preparing meals. * There are four times more

astrologers than astronomers in the United States. * You may not think it significant that in 1921, Earle Dickson’s wife had a tendency to injure herself while working in the kitchen. He kept bandaging her wounds with gauze and adhesive tape, but the bandages always seemed to be slipping off. Finally, in exasperation, he put a small piece of gauze in the center of a piece of adhesive tape, which worked beautifully. None of this would have made any difference to us today, except that Dickson was an employee of Johnson & Johnson. He took some samples of his invention into work, where the owner, James Johnson, loved the idea. The Band-Aid went into production shortly thereafter.

Having a mother who coaches tennis meant Francois Ross got an early introduction to the sport. Ross left the sport for a while but, after coming back to it age age 14 and starting to take it more seriously, he has steadily increased his prominence with the Dallas High School program. Now, as he prepares to take over the No. 1 singles spot for the Mountaineers, Ross still picks up key pointers from his mother, Marywood University women’s coach Dominique Lemire-Ross. “My mom will help me in matches,” he said. “If I’m losing my head, she helps calm me down.” That’s an important part of his approach this season. When Ross talks about what he needs to do most to handle the challenge of facing Wyoming Valley Conference top players, he points to two things – improving his volleys and “keeping his head.” During his freshman year, Ross filled in as part of the varsity lineup whenever a teammate was missing. As a sophomore, he played regularly in the doubles lineup. Last season, he split time between singles and doubles. Dallas coach Joe Pugliese plans to rely on Ross more heavily this season. Ross was away on vacation when the team was shut out by defending champion Wyoming Seminary in the opener, then suffered a loss in his return Monday when Dallas evened its record with a victory over Hazleton Area. As Ross gets back in a groove after missing time, Pugliese plans to use him at the top of the lineup. “He’s gotten bigger and stronger,” Pugliese said. “That’s probably his biggest asset. He’s grown a lot.” Ross feels the additional strength come through in more powerful shots in many situations. “With my forehand, my backhand and my serve,” he said. “All around, my hits are stronger.” Ross worked on his game in the winter at Kingston Indoor Tennis. He enters his busy final season of high school play while his mother’s team has just three April matches – including April 19 at Misericordia University – in preparation for a milestone in Lemire-Ross’ coaching career. Marywood is headed to the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Tournament in May after winning the Colonial States Athletic Conference title in the fall in its second season under Lemire-Ross. She moved to Marywood after spending three seasons as Dallas girls coach and still teaches junior tennis at the Valley Tennis and Swim Club in Shavertown.

TUMC festival benefits United Methodist Home for Children A mission festival to benefit the United Methodist Home for Children in central Pennsylvania was held Feb. 24 at the Trucksville United Methodist Church Sunday School. The hour-long event opened with the children singing, led by Musical Director Dr. Stephen Broskoske.
