A.H. board offers kindergarten students‘shuttle’ to smaller classes rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. - Abington Heights Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Mahon offered parents of kindergarten students at Waverly Elementary School a solution July 17 for overcrowded classroom: shuttle to another school. Several parents of kindergarten students voiced their concerns about large class sizes at recent school board meetings. According to Mahon, kindergarten class sizes at Waverly Elementary at currently at 23 students, while kindergarten class sizes at Clarks Summit Elementary at currently at 17. “For anyone concerned about class sizes for kindergarten, we will be able to make arrangements for transportation to ensure that those students have a smaller class size,” Mahon said.“We’re

RANSOM TWP. - The Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports, l.l.C. proposed land development plans were the topic of discussion at this month’s Ransom Twp. Planning Commission meeting July 15. Several issues were touched on, the most pressing, according to the proposed business Manager Andrew Massimilian, being that of driveway width. “There seems to be inconsistency in terms of what John [Seamans, Township Engineer] is looking for,” Massimilian said, adding that one engineer letter references the SAlDO (Subdivision and land Development Ordinance), while another refers to a PennDOT Publication 70, citing different requirements. “There’s ambiguity here in terms of what actually he’s looking for,” Massimilian said. “Mark [Dieter, Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports engineer] picked up on that… so he and John [Seamans] are supposed to get together and talk about that issue. That seems to be the one that, in my understanding, both parties would go to litigation on, so I would think that’s the one we would want to address.” At the May 20 Planning Commission meeting, the board and its solicitor Donna DeVita suggested the engineers, along with one of the planning commission members and possibly a member of the Board of Supervisors schedule an informal meeting to discuss issues on the table. At the time of the July meeting, that had not yet happened, and DeVita said she spoke with the Supervisors, who expressed to her their

Factoryville illustrator aims for ‘eye-catching’ From ‘Lilly the Lash’ to murals and more, Keystone grad Marc Tobin achieves success with imagery JOAN MEAD - MATSUI

Abington Journal correspondent

“So rich, enduring, vibrant, 3-D like” are comments children’s book author, Julie Woik hears “100 times a day” about the illustrations of Factoryville illustrator, Marc Tobin, whose art can be found cover to cover in Woik’s series of books, “The life and Times of lilly the lash®.” “Marc’s spectacular illustrations provide the delicate touch and tone I need to allow the meaningful storylines to be received in the exact way they were intended. The storylines are written with a much appreciated and much need value-based character building focus, but Book Marketing 101 tells you that eyecatching illustrations are what initially draws the consumer in. I think I picked the right guy for the job,” said Woik of Tobin. “let’s face it, an eyelash is quite an odd character for a children’s book.” According to Tobin, Woik contacted him approximately seven years ago, after finding his website. “She had an idea for some children’s books – a series,” said Tobin, whose digitally- generated art has been his medium of choice for at least 15 years. “She sent me the stories and they were wonderful. They were really, really good…” he added. Tobin followed up by developing some concept sketches for the character. “I like having an image emerge. Being able to render it and then take it a little further and give it some highlights. I think it comes naturally (for me),” said Tobin, who “every once in a while,” will do a mural for somebody when he has a longing for “the tangible, hands on painting stuff.” Tobin described his style as a little bit more technical with an aspect of realism that is not flat and mapped -out technical. “I always like to play with atmospheric things and I’ll give some blur…” In the series, an eyelash utilizes her charm and mystique to playfully explore important life lessons and empower audiences everywhere to build self-esteem and character. Currently, three books, “The

Garden Gathering,” where lilly the lash finds her very first mission in a garden; “The Toy Store,” with lilly in New York City and “Ocean Commotion,” as lilly finds herself in the town of Rockin’ Reef, are available, in the anticipated 15- book series. Book four, “The Kacklin’ Kitchen,” set with lilly in the quaint country village of Cobblestone Cove is due for release in August. Tobin graduated from Keystone College, la Plume, with an A.F.A and Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, with a B.F.A. In addition to his work for Woik, his clients include Compass learning Inc., Del Taco, DHl, FedEx/ Kinko’s, Glencoe/McGraw Hill, IBM Systems Magazine, Jiffylube, KFC, llewellyn Worldwide, loew’s Cinemas, McDonald’s, 7Eleven,

Safeway, Salvation Army, San Diego Metropolitan Magazine, Sea World Graphics, Staples, Texaco, U.S. News & World Report, Washington State Dental Association and Whimsical Wizard. A children’s musical, “lilly the lash & The Garden Gathering,” based on the first book in the series, premieres August 7, 8 and 9 in Ft. lauderdale, Fl. Prior to the premiere, August 5, Woik will offer a reading of the book via PowerPoint at an amphitheater in Hollywood, Fla. to several thousand people. Costumed characters will be on stage to sing songs from the play. More information regarding Tobin can be found on his web site, mtillustration.com.

Editor: In these turbulent times, many people are concerned about their finances and are working with a Financial Adviser. Few advisers and fewer people understand Social Security and its importance in their financial lives. Here is what we feel is important: Take advantage of Guaranteed Lifetime-Income Programs: Your Social Security benefit grows at 8% every year you defer taking income after turning 62 until you reach 70. This 8% does not include Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) which historically average around 2.5%, protect your Social Security from inflation and change annually. COLA’s do not show up on the benefit statements you receive from the Social Security Administration. You can expect 8-10% annual growth by delaying your Social Security benefit until age 66- your Full Retirement Age. This is also the age you’ll be eligible for your Primary Insurance Amount 100% of your Social Security. At 70, you would receive 125% of your benefit. 70 is the maximum age you can defer Social Security, and ½ year later at 70 ½ you must take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from your IRAs. If you fail to take RMDs, large penalties apply by tax law. At age 59 ½ the IRS allows you to make penalty-free, taxfree transfers from your 401(K) or IRA into a Guaranteed Lifetime Income Program. By doing so, you create an income account insured and ‘Investment Managed’ by an Insurance Company with a Guaranteed Income Account. For a fee, your withdrawal account is guaranteed certain growth rates. The same account also pays you Guaranteed Lifetime Income that cannot decline, but can increase. Generally, thesefeatures won’t beat the guaranteed 8-10% rate your Social Security benefit is growing annually from 62-66 by deferring your benefit. Using your personal, ‘Guaranteed Income for Life’ program from 62-66, you can receive a guaranteed monthly income stream from what was your 401(K). This can avoid having to take Social Security at age 62. Additionally, Social Security calculates your benefit based on the highest of any 30 years wages from your work record- this boost to your ‘worker’ earnings record can significantly increase your Social Security benefit. How can you potentially minimize taxes on Social Security benefits? Conversion of your 401(K) or IRA into a Roth IRA may be appropriate. Although I cannot offer tax-advice, and the financials must be calculated on a case-by-case basis. The tax can be paid over multiple years, and you’re then exempt from having to take RMDs at 70 ½. This strategy seems most appropriate for individuals who have retirement- income levels between $25,000 - $44,000 or who’ve accumulated larger 401(K)s or IRAs, but not necessarily so. Smaller IRA accounts may also benefit from a Roth conversion. Michael Dillon 1st Financial Investments, Inc. Clarks Summit

Monsters,myths and magic

Camp Create to be held at Comm Aug. 5-9, 12-16 eLiZaBetH BauMeisteR

lbaumeister@theabingtonjournal.com

Don’t be alarmed if rumors begin circulating of monsters and other mythical creatures hanging around Waverly. Young imaginations and their limitless possibilities will soon be freed at the Waverly Community House (also known as “the Comm”), 1115 North Abington Road. Camp Create, now entering its 13th year, will be held there in two one-week sessions: Aug. 5 to 9 and 12 to 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. It is open to children with special needs ages 6 to 12 or with equivalent abilities. The cost is $35 per week. Each session features a different theme, and both include a low-key performance by the children on the last day in front of family and friends. The first is themed “Monsters Art School,” where campers will create monster characters, learn about types of monsters and use their imaginations to create sets, costumes and monster gadgets. The second week is themed “Epic Journey,” where they will create magical characters, costumes, gadgets and sets. Maria Wilson, executive director at the the Comm, described Camp Create as “a fine art theater camp designed to engage and entertain children who have special needs, including a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities.” She explained it is a recreational, not

therapeutic program. “It’s one of the only camps in the area that is especially designed to meet the needs of children who have disabilities and might not enjoy the traditional camp,” she said. Directed each year by Stephen and Amy Colley and Michaela Moore, Camp Create is funded by donations from various local businesses, organizations and individuals. Wilson said two major supporters are Procter & Gamble and Gerrity’s Supermarkets. A new sponsor this year, according to Moore, is the Abington Heights Civic League. Moore said Camp Create began in 2000, when Stephen Colley was approached by a local service agency

which had a grant available for such a program. He and Amy Colley then met with Moore, who is also owner of the All About Theatre Performing Arts School, and developed the program. From the first day of camp on, she said, the directors and staff work to build a cohesive group in an environment that is inclusive and safe. Campers receive a tour of the area and a breakdown of the schedule so they know what to expect. The schedule is then closely observed, but the rest is up to the campers. “It gives them something to make that is theirs and they can own,” said Moore. For details call 570.586.8191.

Diane Hughes, 57, is the boss, but if there’s ever a problem she will gladly let Joe Hughes, 58, her husband of 38 years “back in charge.” Humor and the joy of spending time together are two key ingredients in this Newton Township couple’s marriage. They met in high school at Abington Heights and sat next to one another in a high school sex education class. “I was the funniest in my senior class and he was the big baseball star – a pitcher,” said Diane. For their first date, Joe took her to meet his parents at his family’s cottage at Lake Winola. “It was cheaper than $20 for a movie,” said Joe. “I probably took her to a bowling alley (to bowl) for our second date.” While they joke often about one another’s personality traits and habits – for better or worse, beneath their humor is a thick layer of love that has kept them together. But were there fireworks when they met? Well, no, not necessarily. Diane said, “The real girl who he was asking to the prom already had a date, so I was second fiddle.” But she was never second fiddle according to Joe. “I didn’t have her phone number.” They graduated from high school in 1973 and married on a hot day in 1975 on Memorial Day weekend. “I don’t know who dressed him,” Diane joked of Joe on their wedding day. To this day, she packs the couple’s clothes for vacation. “His mother probably had to lay out his clothes for him (growing up). He’s a mama’s boy and still is.” Regarding their honeymoon, Diane said, “I tell this story all the time. Joe was in college and had his finals at the “U,” (University of Scranton) and there were too many snow days. So we were supposed to be going somewhere on a honeymoon…but two months before, we realized he had to stay because he wasn’t going to be out of school in time for our honeymoon after the wedding. We were going to go to the Poconos and then come back so he could take his finals on Monday.” She added, “I called (the hotel) and the lady said, ‘Do you want the suite with the couch?” I thought, ‘This is my honeymoon, we might as well spend it all.’ We got there and that’s all we had - a room with a couch. I thought we had something fancy.” “A pull-out couch,” Joe

added. “It was the beginning. I should have known,” Diane teased. Their marriage has always been about the “give and take” and being comfortable with their individual roles, and they have had plenty of time to get to know one another in the last 22 years at The Dalton Market, a business they own, along with Joe’s sister, Ann; and brotherin-law, Randy Pensack. Diane and Joe are also realtors. “I do the fun stuff and he has to do the hard stuff. I get to work with the people (at the checkout area of the market) and he has to cut meat in the back. In real estate, I love looking up info for houses for our clients and he has to do the paperwork. In the seven years we’ve been realtors, I haven’t done paperwork. It has always been that way. Nothing stresses him until you

Helping healthy eating take root JOAN MEAD-MATSUI

Abington Journal Correspondent

Sowing seeds for healthier eating is one of Brittany Kazmierski’s goals for day campers at The Waverly Community House. Kazmierski is head counselor, level two, for those ages five to 7 at Comm Camp and also a dietetics major at the University of Delaware. Recently, with the encouragement and help of family friend, Vince Maletta and Waverly Community House director Maria Wilson, Kazmierski incorporated gardening into the mix of activities at the Comm. “I really want to do something with kids when I’m older, so I thought starting a community garden would get them involved and I would be able to incorporate that with healthy eating and “MyPlate,” which is the new food pyramid,” said Kazmierski. “I’ve always been interested in nutrition and healthy eating. I wanted to incorporate what I’m studying in school with the camp.” MyPlate is a program through The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP), an organization of the U.S. Department of

Agriculture that was established in 1994 to improve the nutrition and well-being of Americans. Plans for the garden got underway this past winter when Kazmierski sent an email to Wilson to ask for her support. “She was thrilled about it,” said Kazmierski. Throughout the spring semester, Kazmierski set the wheels in motion by consulting with her professors about pediatric nutrition and developing lesson plans, and in April, while home on break from college, she solicited donations from vendors such as Creekside Gardens, Corky’s Garden Path and Beichler’s Greenhouse at the Waverly Community House 21st Annual House, Garden and Gift Show. “They were excited I was getting more people involved in gardening…,” she said. The first week of June she and Maletta planted the garden that includes tomatoes, a few different varieties of peppers, eggplant, zucchini, strawberries, peas and a few cantaloupes. Maletta’s sons, Nico, 10, (level three) Antonio, 12, (level four) and

Kazmierski’s sister, Annie, 10, (level three) also assisted with the garden, and were the “first kids to kind of get introduced to the garden and help me with ideas.” Kazmierski works daily with level two campers and meets with other levels every Wednesday. “I reinforce the garden activities with games such as matching fruits with where they appear on the MyPlate diagram and I answer questions each day about healthy eating choices…,” and she said on July 10, “We did a recipe today using Pascals with orange juice and strawberries… it was a cool snack to make with them.” Camp director, Alexis Johnson, said of Kazmierski’s focus on nutrition, “…We like to let her show her ability and what she has learned at school and really strive to show the kids in the community what there is to offer. The counselors are interested as well. Brittany has really taken this full force and really has gone above and beyond this summer to show the kids how eating healthy and exercise are important.” Kazmierski said, “…They (the campers) are all so interested in it

that a lot of them actually grow gardens themselves, so I thought this was a way for me to teach them more about it.” Children in her level lend a hand by helping water the garden. At the end of this year’s summer

camp program, Kazmierski said she hopes to bring the fruits and vegetables to the levels for the children “to sample.” “The most exciting thing for me is seeing the kids excited about the garden project,” she said.

Happiness on the HILL Bazaar plans family fun, welcomes volunteers

Today marks the fifth week of the Lakeside Concert series at Hillside Park. Although this is the first year the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board presents the series at the South Abington Township Park, it has garnered support and enthusiasm from the local community. The concert series, running 10 weeks, will hit its halfway point tonight. Each week, a community business or member sponsors the concert and various civic groups provide refreshments for sale. This week, the Abington Lions will prepare the food. The Lions have organized the food for the last four weeks, and this is their final week volunteering in that capacity. The Tom Rogo Duo, a group that favors 1970s soft rock, will take the stage. The photography of Sharon Burke will be on display as this week’s featured artist. Joyce Electric, a local electrical firm, presents tonight’s concert. The firm served as the electrical contractor that

The 21st annual Our Lady of the Snows Country Bazaar will be held August 1-3 on the grounds of the church of St. Benedict, Newton Ransom Boulevard, Clarks Summit. According to co-chair Mary Jo Pasqualichio, a wide variety of food will be available for purchase. Some items will include: pasta, potato pancakes, hot wings, clams, haluski, pirogies, sausage and peppers, corn, french fries, chicken tenders, roast beef, wimpies, pizza, pizza fritas, baked goods, rice pudding and an ice cream stand. A section of children’s games will be featured and older children and adults will have the opportunity for performances at

“Cafe Mocha,” a tent set up by the church. “It’s something to amuse the kids who are too old for the kids games, but need something to keep them occupied,” Pasqualichio said. She added the event will feature good live entertainment on the main stage featuring popular local bands. Thursday’s featured band will be The Wanabees. Picture Perfect will perform Friday and The Poets will be the featured act Saturday. The performance will start at approximately 7 p.m. each night. The picnic will run from 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and from 5 to 11 p.m. on Saturday. There is no admission fee and a free shuttle service will be available to transport people from the Red Barn Village parking lot to the picnic.

worked on the newly- renovated soccer fields at the park. John Joyce, of Joyce Electric, said he thought the sponsorship was a good idea, because as a union contractor, his business employs “many local people,” he said and it seemed a natural fit. “It’s a very good cause,” Joyce said of the series, adding that the concerts are something he would “abso-

lutely support” in the future. Marie King, chairwoman of the Abington Dog Park, explained that the series, while still new to the area, has become a local favorite. “The whole park is coming alive. We’ve had terrific feedback on the series as we’re coming up on the halfway point. With these hot summer nights, sitting lakeside and listening to a free live performance has been a great respite,” King wrote in an email. Like any community event, the concert series involves

myriad of details and facets. Each week, the concerts require the full efforts of the recreation board and volunteers. King, like many other board members, stressed the board’s strength as a team. “The Rec Board (AAJRB) should really be commended for pulling this together. Their leadership has a way of really motivating community volunteers to add to the Abington community in tangible ways. And the concert series is no exception,” King wrote.

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. — South Abington Township supervisors met to discuss the move of the post office from its current location on Shady Lane Road to the McCarthy Building across the road on Park Street. The post office plans to move sometime in July. According to David O’Neill, township manager, plans for the new post office were approved on April 26, 2010. The township worked with PennDOT and the owner of McCarthy’s. The plans were to include two driveway entrances, parking, storm drainage, water runoff and landscaping. “None of this was done. The post office hired contractors and they did put in a concrete slab and a driveway,” said O’Neill. They did what they were told, but it is a safety issue. The driveway is

supposed to be away from the intersection. Shady Lane splits into two lanes near the intersection and there is one lane on the other side. If a car stops and someone waves them over, they will be hit. This is the most visible corner in the township.” “The safety aspect is terrible,” said Supervisor Giles Stanton. We should send a letter to the post office about these safety issues.” “We are trying to protect our township patrons,” O’Neill added. The letter Stanton discussed will advise the post office that it cannot move into the McCarthy Building without first addressing the safety issues. The township plans to go to the Court of Common Pleas if the post office moves in the new location without addressing these safety issues. “This is a violation of township ordinances and a safety issue,”said Bill Jones, solicitor.

tance to get involved at this stage. Massimilian, however, said Dieter planned to speak with Seamans within the next week or so. “Mark Dieter told me that he’d be happy to talk to John [Seamans] about the road and that was his area of expertise,” he said. “But the numbers are huge and that’s why, like I said, on a cost basis, putting in a road to meet PennDOT Publication 70 of any type of traffic—semis, big trucks—at 30 miles an hour, is overkill for that property…we’re not going to have truck traffic up there to begin with.” Massimilian added that he believes Seamans’ traffic calcula-

tions are “very theoretical and impractical,” and he needs to take into account it is a private road, not a public access route. Another major issue, Massimilian said, is that of well locations and plans for potable water, which Seamans listed as requirements in his Jan. 4 review letter. Massimilian referred to the SALDO, in which he said preliminary plans are governed by section 404 and final plans by section 405. He read from the ordinance, explaining these things are not required until the final plans. DeVita questioned Massimilian about another issue which was discussed in previous meetings, the fencing requirement for the property. He said fencing will be addressed in revised plans to be submitted in the future.

Planning Commission member Bill Auriemma questioned Massimilian regarding his billing dispute with the township. The matter was briefly discussed, but Auriemma stopped the conversation, saying it was not his place nor the Planning Commission’s to discuss it, as the matter currently rests with the Board of Supervisors. In a letter which he delivered to the Planning Commission at the meeting, Massimilian made a formal request for an extension until March 31, 2014 of the plan review period due to expire Aug. 21, 2013. He wrote that the request is due to a delay by the township between October, 2012 and June, 2013. He listed a timeline of events, beginning with Oct. 24, when Dieter wrote to the Supervisors requesting a ruling on matters

which needed to be addressed before proceeding with revised plans. He said the request for a ruling was advised by Seamans in a letter dated Aug. 21, 2012. The timeline continues with two piecesofcorrespondencedatedJanuary 2 and 4, 2013, in which Seamans commented to the Supervisors regarding therulingrequest. Massimilian writes, “Remarkably, the existence of these letters was kept secret for months from Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports and the public. Neither Mr. Seamans nor the Township informed Mark Dieter or Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports of the existence of these letters, and in an obvious departure from protocol regarding correspondence sent to the Supervisors, the letters were never read at Township Meetings,

according to the minutes.” “At the Supervisors’ April work session,” the letter continues, “I asked for a response to the Dieter questions and was told that they would be addressed at the next Township meeting. At the May, 2013 Township meeting, I was told that action by the Supervisors on matters in the Dieter letter was premature and that the Planning Commission and its attorney would address these issues.” “At the May 20, 2013 Planning Commission meeting, Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports learned of the existence of the January, 2013 Seamans’ letters. Underscoring his apparent intention to keep these letters secret, Mr. Seamans remarked without being asked that ‘These letters were addressed to the Supervisors

and it is their decision to release them.’ Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports received copies of the letters by mail 12 days later in June after Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports attorney Robert McNelly called the Township’s Solicitor to request the release.” After receiving the extension request, the Planning Commission took an approximately 15- minute recess to consult with DeVita on legal questions. After the board returned, Auriemma announced the members felt the need to table the extension request until the next meeting, for the purpose of giving the rest of the board a chance to offer input, even though legal quorum was present. The board voted unanimously to table the request until the next meeting, which is scheduled for Aug. 19.

Shuttle

From page 1A trying to develop ways that make it fair across the board by deploying our staff in a way that is best for the kids. “We’re dealing with less teachers, but we have a solution where a kindergarten student can go to a class of 17, 18 or 19.” According to Mahon, the morning kindergarten students would get on their regular bus to Waverly Elementary then get on a shuttle to Clarks Summit Elementary. Their parents would be responsible for picking them up from school. The parents of the afternoon kindergarten students would be responsible for tak-

ing their children to Clarks Summit Elementary then a shuttle would return them to Waverly Elementary where they would get on their normal afternoon bus home. Although he agreed it’s not a perfect solution, Mahon assured parents that the district is looking out for the students’ best interests “Given the financial crisis that we’re facing, to have a child take a shuttle to an excellent kindergarten class of a reasonable size for one year to help address this issue is unfortunate, but not unreasonable given our challenges.” Mahon gave an update on

the status of the new pool construction at the high school. “Right now, the architects have completed their initial drawings,” he said. “My sense is that it could be done by the end of the summer or not too far into the fall.”

Jazz Festival:‘Fits our area just right’ victoria l. seaMans

Abington Journal Correspondent

The 2013 annual Scranton Jazz Festival, scheduled for the first weekend of August, will showcase local and national talent. “Every important populated area of this country has great culinary arts, great culture, history, great sports and great people,” said musician Marko Marcinko, of Scranton. “NEPA is no different and even more special with our wealth of talent in all of these areas; therefore, a Jazz festival to celebrate America’s greatest and most incredible export, “Jazz,” fits our area just right.” Marcinko, Artistic Director of this year’s Jazz festival, said, “this 9th year will be musically fabulous, completely entertaining and a delight for all the senses.” According to Marcinko, the 2013 festival will present Jazz legend and performer, Freddy Cole. Cole, a seasoned musician who has been active in the Jazz scene for more than 50 years, is the younger brother of Nat King Cole. “It is also a thrill to present performers that appear all over the world at some of the best festivals, night clubs and theaters,” Marcinko said. Other talent scheduled to perform at this year’s festival includes: Grammy Award -winning Dave Samuels and the Organik Vibe Trio with saxophone player Joel Frahm; La Cuchina, “The Ultimate Gato Barbieri Tribute”; guitar icon, Vic Juris along with Jay Anderson and Adam Nussbaum; The Carl Fischer Bouveau

Nostalgia in Jermyn park aims to unite community Ben Freda

Abington Journal Correspondent

There is nothing like an old-fashioned concert to get the community together. That’s what the town of Jermyn will host July 28 at Callahan Recreational Park. Since 2007, people from the community and its surrounding areas have been bringing their lawn chairs to the park to listen to the band, dance and reunite with friends and family members. They also dance t. “Everyone is welcome,” said JoAnne Wilson, co-chair of the Jermyn Events Committee. “It’s a great way for friends and families to have a relaxing summer

evening and meet old and new friends.” Concert in the Park offers free food such as hot dogs and beverages. Free ice cream will be donated by Jermyn residents Paul and Joan Buchinski in memory of Rita Battenberg, a Jermyn resident who recently died. Local band The Continentals will provide musical entertainment. For the last four years, The Continentals have been playing easy listening Italian love songs and polkas for this annual concert. Concert in the Park is sponsored by the Jermyn Events Committee and Lackawanna County Commissioners. The Jermyn Events Committee applied

for a grant to the Lackawanna County Commissioners to make this event happen. The Jermyn community, including the Jermyn/Mayfield Knights of Columbus, is working to make Concert in the Park a night for families and friends to get together and communicate with one another. The concert is not just for people who live in the Jermyn community. It is for everybody near or far, organizers said. “It helps people in the community to get together,” said Kate Hosie, co-chair and president of the Jermyn Events Committee. “It’s a nice get-together for everyone.”

This week’s question: What year was Adam Sandler’s original “Grown Ups” movie released?

There is just something about jugband music that is so uplifting. I know I can’t help but start tapping my feet when I hear it played. I think the 1960s band The Lovin’ Spoonful, said it best with their lyrics “And the doctor said give him jug band music, it seems to make him feel just erica fine.” Last week rogler the Dietrich Contributing was filled with Columnist jugband music during our artists-in-residency Jammin’ in a Jugband with David Driskell and Timothy Walker of Sadie Green Sales Jugband. Students learned how to play jugband instruments such as a washtub bass, washboard, spoons, jug, drums and more. They also made instruments such as spoons, bumblebees and drums as well as other instruments of their own design. At the end of the week, students were invited to play with Sadie Green Sales Jugband at River Day. The guys of Sadie Green Sales Jugband also played concerts at Tunkhannock Manor and Tunkhannock’s URS during the week. We would like to thank the Northern Tier Partnership for Arts in Education and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts for helping fund these classes. Summer camps will continue next week at the Dietrich with Your Epic Journey Theatre and Visual Arts Camp and Art Explorers Camp. In Your Epic Journey Camp, children will go on a fantastical adventure of the imagination as they create costumes, props, a set and a play to perform for family and friends. Instructors Amy Colley and Michaela Moore do such a wonderful job of helping campers express their creativity through the projects they develop. Your Epic Journey Camp will be held Monday through Friday, July 29 through August 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. Then during the afternoons of that week from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., children ages five to 12 will be able to venture into the world of visual arts and discover many of the innovative methods and exciting materials used by famous artists throughout history. Students will work with clay to create sculptures, paint, draw and create 3-D collages. Admission to this camp and Your Epic Journey Camp is $60 each. For more information or to register for either of these camps, call the Dietrich at 570-996-1500. The Dietrich will also be offering free dance workshops in August. Children are invited to join instructor Judy Weist of Stage Door Dance Studio August 5 and 6 to explore dance, rhythm and movement through these introductory workshops. Children ages two & three years old are welcome to attend from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. There will be a class for youngsters ages four to six years old from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. And a session for seven to nine -year- olds will take place from noon to 12:45 p.m. For more information or to register for these free classes, call the Dietrich at 570-996-1500.

“Freeze.” The title can’t help but be perfect for a heat wave kind of day. It is a new book of recipes designed to update ways for using a home freezer that is a recent addition to the cookbook collection at the Abington Community Library. Written by Justine Pattison, a British TV and magazine food writer, the collection of recipes promotes some revolutionary freezing techniques, promising to make the most of freezer space, the weekly food bill and time spent in the kitchen. There are recipes for simple suppers for one, packed lunches, special occasion cakes and easy entertaining, all prepared ahead of time with minimum effort and maximum freshness. In addition to the recipe section, there are more than 75 pages devoted to “Freezer KnowHow,” with helpful advice for the basic preparation of foods headed for the freezer. Another new cookbook on the shelf at the library is Joanne Weir’s “Cooking Confidence: Dinner Made Simple.” Host of her own TV cooking series, executive chef and cooking teacher, Weir includes 100 affordable, uncomplicated and delicious main dish recipes for dinner every night of the week. Beginning with a section on preparing vegetables as entrees, she then moves on to present taste-tempting ideas for serving a variety of grains and beans in stews, salads and soufflés. Chapters with recipes for preparing chicken, turkey and fish in new ways are followed by the final section on how to fix meat —- steak, lamb, pork – with varied com-

binations of ingredients inspired by cuisine from many cultures. A new handbook put out by Better Homes and Gardens is “Organize Your Home: Clutter Cures for Every Room,” also a new addition at the library. Secrets for getting organized are amply illustrated with full-color photography, offering visual aids for the hints compiled throughout. Read about clutter-busting strategies; room-byroom solutions (kitchen, closet, bathroom, garage) for tackling trouble spots; how to maximize tiny rooms and store more in cabinets and closets; room makeovers on a budget; real life “before-and-after” transformations; and hints for shopping for containers, shelving, and other products. CERTIFICATE WEEKS FOR CHILDREN: Children who have completed the basic requirements of the Summer Reading Club may pick up their Certificates during regular library hours from Monday, July 29 through Friday, Aug. 9. They will also be able to “shop” for prizes at a special library store during those two weeks. The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit.

longtime dream of Ron and Kim Whipple, founders/owners of the Whipple Performing Arts Studio and the Wyoming County Players. After years of presenting programs and performances in dozens of venues throughout the region, the new Playhouse will provide a permanent home for performances, as well as rehearsals, classes and set and prop storage. The process began when Marvin and Evelyn Sands built NEPA’s first drive-in theater in Tunkhannock in 1947. Their popular Starlite Drive-in had operated continuously for more than 30 years when daughter and son-inlaw, Kim and Ron Whipple, took over the business in 1979. When the Whipples later sold the property to a supermarket chain, they kept an acre of land to build a studio specifically designed for dance and the Whipple Dance Studio opened in 1991. Kim Whipple is a member of the Cecchetti Council of America, an international organization dedicated to teaching and maintaining the high standards of ballet. In 2008, the Whipple Dance Studio became the Whipple Performing Arts Studio. “The studio is constantly changing and redefining itself to the

needs of its students,” said Ron Whipple. “Acting lessons were added with an annual Summer Theater Camp. Kim has started a Dancing Princess program, which gives teen dancers a chance to learn how to teach dance to young children while they themselves learn ballroom, leadership and etiquette. The Princesses do many community service projects plus promote the studio at festivals and fairs.” The Whipples’ community theater group, The Wyoming County Players, gave the organization an opportunity to incorporate the studio’s dancers into many of their musicals. As the Players’ reputation grew, so did its performance calendar. The studio provided dancers and singers for the many musicals and dessert and dinner theater performances throughout the year. But the need for the Players’ own performing space became apparent when venues did not have adequate air conditioning in the summer or comfortable seating. Renting space to build sets and store props also became a financial concern. So, the Starlite Playhouse became the goal: a beautiful new home, decorated in the early 1800’s opera house-style, where this creative group could set no limits on what they wanted to do.

forms are available at www. scrantonprep.com for sponsors and participants. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Cody Barrasse Scholarship Fund that will annually provide financial aid for a Scranton Prep underclassman and graduating senior. Also, each year at graduation the Ignation Service Award will be awarded in Barrasse’s memory to a senior who courageously exemplifies a commitment to social justice. “Cody always enjoyed playing basketball,” Schoen said. “He was a very good athlete in high school and enjoyed playing recreational and intramural basketball at Penn State. “We thought it would be a great event to celebrate a fantastic life that was ended so prematurely. Cody would have loved having a tournament like this one. He meant so much to all of us and had such a great future.” Schoen and the committee are hoping for a large turnout and have discussed alternative plans to set up courts outside the Xavier Center, possibly on the tennis courts, if needed. “The turnout has been great so far,” he said. A lot of Cody’s friends are planning on playing. The Barrasse family and entire tournament committee appreciate anything anyone can do, whether it’s playing in the game on signing on to be a sponsor. “We just ask that everyone get their money in by July 31. We’re working hard to put on a great day for our late friend.”

Patrolman Thom Kreidler, Fishing Derby Chair and avid fisherman, is retiring from the police department later this year, so this could be his last year as chairman of the derby.

Looking for a big CATCH JOAn MEAD-MATsui

Abington Journal Correspondent

“You have to be patient,” is a tip South Abington Township police officer Thom Kreidler offers young anglers prior to the South Abington Township Police and Maintenance Departments’ annual fishing derby July 27, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., rain or shine. “We see it all the time. They (children) cast their line and leave it out (in the water) for 30 seconds and they pull it in. Leave it out there. If the fish are biting, they will find your bait,” said Kreidler, an avid fisherman, who has chaired the annual event at Lackawanna State Park for 16 years. Police officers, Don Snyder and Tommy Ksaizek, started the derby 18 years ago. Kreidler plans to retire from the police department later this year, and when asked who will chair future fishing derbies, Kreidler said, “If it continues and I hope it does, I’ll help on the committee, but it’s time to hand it over to someone else.” And regarding his reason for organizing the derby, he said, “I like to see the kids get into fishing. I’m and not as good as I’d like to be, but I like to get them hooked on fishing. A lot of them have stayed with it. It’s something to do outside and away from hanging out and sitting in front of the television.” According to Kreidler, one of the goals for the derby is to

show the children, particularly the younger children, “that police aren’t all bad guys…we’re not out there only to arrest people,” added Kreidler. “We’ve seen a lot of the kids grow, who come when they’re very young and they stay right up to 14 and 15 years old. Being in the public as a police officer, I run into a lot of people who say, ‘You’re the guy with the fishing derby.’ They don’t look at me as a police officer. I’m a uniformed officer but they don’t look at me as a police officer.” Hot dogs, soda, bottled water and snacks are provided for anyone who has worked up an appetite and thirst while fishing at the derby. “It’s a good time. We have good prizes,” he said. “We have a big raffle at the end of the derby that consists of mostly sporting goods equipment, from footballs, soccer and basketballs to bicycles, outdoor games, and fishing equipment.” The winner who catches the largest fish in each of three age groups (0 to 5; 6 to 10 and 11 to 15 years of age) receives a gift certificate to a local sporting goods store and a trophy.

Travel softball team experiences great success

The Electric City Shock 12U softball team has enjoyed a very productive summer season, compliling a record of 38-2-1 and winning four tournaments. Three girls from Clarks Summit: Naudia Solan, Cassidy Bartkowski and Maddie Brown, have played a big role in the team’s success. Pitcher Naudia Solan, 12, believes the team’s work ethic and familiarity with each other have contributed to their winning ways. “I think our teamwork and practicing have been the main reason for our success,” Solan said. Solan, whose favorite part of the game is defense, enjoys playing with her teammates on the field. I n f i e l d e r /o u t f i e l d e r Cassidy Bartkowski, 12, who has been playing softball for eight years, enjoys the team aspect of the sport. “I like how everyone is involved and everyone has something to do,” she said. Bartkowski added that the team’s close bond helps them on the field. “We all work together and we’re not just a team, we’re like a family,” she said. According to Bartkowski, winning the state championship was the culmination of a lot of hard work. “It was a sense of accomplishment, like we made it,” she said. Outfielder Maddie Brown, 13, of Clarks Summit, has worked a lot on her batting mechanics and has been pleased with the results. “My favorite part of the

game is hitting,” she said. “I’ve been practicing a lot and I’ve been hitting really well lately. It’s the strongest part of my game.” According to head coach Jim Leppo, the biggest reason for the team’s success is simple. “Their hard work,” he said. “They practice two or three times a week and never put their gloves and bats away.” Leppo added that along with working well together on the field, the girls are also great friends off the diamond. “They are always together,” he said. They’re on Facebook together…they go to each other’s houses. They

Donations in support of the event may be sent to South Abington Police Community Projects Fund, P.O. Box 492, Chinchilla, PA 18410. Kreidler also advises anglers to pre-register and come early to get a good spot. “Fishing begins at 9 a.m. but come a little earlier if you are pre-registered to find a

good spot along the shoreline,” he said. Children must pre-register for the event.

are always together in some form or another.” The team was able to win a 14U tournament and Leppo believes their understanding of the sport gives them an edge. “Their knowledge of the game makes them better,” he said. “They might not be as big and strong as the 14-year-old’s, but their

knowledge of the game is just as smart.” Leppo praised his assistant coaches for keeping the girls engaged and ready to play at the highest level. “I have great assistant coaches,” he said. “They constantly keep enforcing in them to stay focused and play their game. Our game is all about speed and defense.

When they start putting things together, they’re pretty hard to stop.” Assistant coach Bob Parchinski also thinks the girls determination is critical to their success. “They are dedication to the game,” he said. “They never quit and are always looking to practice.” Parchinski added that the

girls have an easygoing attitude in all situations. “They are the same kids on and off the field,” he said. “They always have the same smiles on their faces.” Assistant coach Rich Solan believes the girls discipline has been a key factor in their accomplishments. “They are so mentally prepared,” he said. “When they play together, they are different girls out there. They are so in sync and actually look like they are older out there playing.” Assistant coach Jim Brown believes the experience the girls have gained over the years is paying off. “The majority of the girls have been playing together for three years,” he said. “I think that’s been a big factor.” Brown also credits the girls commitment to staying in top shape for their success in tournaments. “They all work really hard with physical conditioning,” he said. “During these long, hot tournaments that shows up on Sunday afternoon.” According to Brown, the girls have been able to compete with older teams because of their quickness on the field. “They are a very fast team,” he said. “They make up for their size with their speed.” The team has won four tournament titles this year: 14U Jessup, Junior Olympic ASA 12U Class B Pennsylvania State Championship in York, 12U Matamorus and 12U Binghamton, N.Y. The team will play in two more tournaments this season. The first will be in Dallas on the weekend of Aug. 23 and they will play in the Diamond Nation tournament in New Jersey Oct. 4-5.

to move forward with the consolidation of this office in October.” The petition Nagy is referring to, “Save our Dalton Bank” currently has 12 pages with 35 names on each page. Diane Hughes, Dalton Market, said when she heard as a rumor on the street the bank (Pennstar) is closing, “I didn’t know what to do to help the girls who work there, so this is what I did. I’m friends with all of the girls at the bank.” In 1929, the Dalton office opened as Central State Bank and in 1965 was bought out by First National

Bank, Carbondale. First National Bank Carbondale changed its name to Pioneer American Bank (not a merger just a brand name change) on February 29, 1988, which merged with NBT Bank, N.A. under the name Pennstar Bank, a division of NBT Bank, N.A. in December 2000. “We all feel that Main Street holds a special place in the hearts and history of the Dalton community. What I can tell you is that Pennstar Bank is currently considering options to discuss with the Boro for the use of this location,” said Nagy.
