Bikers,motorists encouraged to work together Issue of cyclists on narrow Lakeside Dr. in Harveys Lake discussed at council meeting DOTTy MARTIn

Clarence Hogan and Sid Halsor are on the same page. They both want bicyclists to continue riding around Harveys Lake but they also want them to be safe. As mayor of Harveys Lake Borough, Hogan wants cyclists to know they are required to follow the same rules of the road as motorists. Halsor, a cycling enthusiast who participates in weekly rides at the lake, wants the same. “I am not against bicycling,” said Hogan, who doesn’t cycle

RuLES OF THE ROAD According to the Pennsylvania Bicycle Driver’s Manual, the general rule is that “every person riding a pedalcycle (the legal term for a bicycle in Pennsylvania) upon a roadway shall be granted all the rights and shall be subject to all of the duties applicable to the driver of a vehicle.” Copies of the Pennsylvania bike law are available at the Harveys Lake Municipal Building.

X-Cell has been given approval to lease a 100 x 100 ft. property off of Cliff Street in Harveys Lake Borough with the purpose of constructing a 195 ft. cell phone tower. The initial meeting regarding the tower took place in April of this year, but has experienced delays with finalizing the plans, mainly due to a conflict concerning the leasing of the land where the tower is to be built. X-Cell only wanted to lease the 100 x 100 feet of property where the tower is to be constructed. The property is located on an area totaling 30 acres, which is owned by a private resident who would have legally been responsible for all taxes on the property if it were not separated into a subdivision status. X-Cell was informed it would need to obtain permits and submit a revised land development plan in order to apply for the subdivision status. All documents, plans and permits have now been satisfied, enabling X-Cell to move forward with the project. Mario Calabretta, engineer for X-Cell and Eric Goldman, an attorney representing X-Cell were present at the initial meeting where Calabretta introduced the potential plans for the tower and Goldman answered the legal inquiries. Several residents voiced opposition to the tower’s construction, stating it would disrupt the area’s natural beauty, as well as possibly lower property values. There was also concern about how truck traffic would burden the area during construction. Calabretta’s response was that there would not be any extremely large trucks needed for the construction and the drilling rig and concrete trucks would be the only trucks utilizing the road. When questioned as to why the tower needed to be built specifically in Harveys Lake, Goldman responded that about half of See X-CELL | 5

In the gluten-free safe zone ElizabEth baumEistEr

It was out of personal frustration and a desire to help others conquer the same frustration she experienced that Marion Welliver, of Stillwater, decided over three years ago to open her store, The Gluten Free Basket, at the corner of routes 415 and 118, Dallas. Diagnosed with ceilac disease, Welliver found herself unable to eat many foods she previously enjoyed while trips to the grocery store became difficult and even “devastating” ordeals. “It’s frustrating,” she said, “trying to go from store to store and reading every label trying to find food you can eat. You feel so isolated. That’s what made me understand and want to help people to see life isn’t so bad.” According to the shop’s website, glutenfreebasketpa. com, “A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes foods containing gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye, malts and triticale. It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent, often as ‘dextrin.’ A gluten-free diet is the only medically-accepted treatment for celiac disease, the related condition dermati-

tis herpetiformis and wheat allergy.” Welliver said every product sold at The Gluten Free Basket, with no exceptions, is gluten-free. The shop offers items such as pasta, snacks, cookies, soups and seasonings, baking mixes, flours, cereal, granola, crackers, breads, frozen foods, pizza and more. “You name it, we have it,” Welliver said. She added the secret to the business’ success so far is its wide range of products. New selections are regularly added to the inventory and if a customer doesn’t find what he or she is looking for, a special order is often placed. Welliver aims to help her customers live better and learn to enjoy life again. She

explained shopping for gluten-free foods can be confusing and frustrating in a traditional grocery store, as there is a risk of accidentally purchasing a product containing gluten. The best thing about The Gluten Free Basket, she says, is that risk isn’t there, as all the items sold are glutenfree. “It’s like a safety zone for [the customers],” she said, “because they don’t have to think about labels and picking up the wrong product.” In addition to The Gluten Free Basket, Welliver owns and operates the nearby Farm Basket at 3950 Memorial Highway in Dallas where she sells vegetables grown on her farm in Stillwater, fruits from local orchards, jams, jellies and more. The Farm Basket is open yearly from May through Oct. 31. Both businesses are closed Mondays and open 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Welliver nvites all who have never been to either business to give them a try, especially those who gave up foods they enjoy due to gluten problems. “Stop by,” she said, “because you will be happy you did. You can have anything and everything you did give up.”

New ultra air purifier used by hospitals now available to public EPA: Indoor air has 100 times the pollution of outdoor air - causes numerous serious health problems Produces pollution free sanitized air required by hospitals

Makes the air in your home pure like a hospital - relieves suffering

Also removes the most harmful pollution other air purifiers do not.

No fan - runs silent. No filters to replace. No bulbs to replace. Runs on 45 watts.

By: John Whitehead, Media Services

Here is breaking news from recent scientific studies. If you are in your home, EVERYBREATHYOU TAKE CAN BE DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH. The EPA has found that indoor air has 100 times more pollution than outdoor air. The EPA reports that this pollution has now been linked to numerous health problems including heart attacks and cancer. A new ultra air purifier that is used by hospitals removes 99.9% of this harmful pollution and relieves the suffering it causes. It is now available to the public in a home sized model. Indoor air pollution is generated by many sources including human infections, pet dander, dust mites, decomposing insects, bacteria breading dirt in carpets, household cleaners, laundry detergent, synthetic fabrics, personal care toiletries, household appliances, computers, paint, stoves, furnaces, air conditioning, fireplaces, tobacco, and much more. This pollution causes allergies, breathing problems and headaches, as most people know. However recent research has found that it causes more serious health problems. Small particle pollutants that are not removed by conventional air purifiers such as hepa filters get into the lining of your lungs. They then breed toxins which then travel into your blood stream. They then can cause serious health problems in every part of your body. A short while ago, a highly advanced air purification system was developed that uses 400 degree heat at a central core to destroy virtually all pollution. This advanced purification system has been proven in 20 international, independent scientific studies. Hospitals then used this air purification system in the form of large commercial units. They found it to be lifesaving in that it cut the spread of infections, diseases, and removed the cause of many other health problems. A high-tech company then developed a small version of these commercial units for home and small institution use. These small units are now available to the public for home use, and they are being used by small hospital facilities, doctor’s offices, schools, and nurseries. This small version of the hospital air purifier is the EdenPURE ® Air Purifier by Air Free ®. It has no fan so it runs silent. It has no filter or UV light bulbs to replace saving you up to $229 a year over conventional air purifiers. It uses less electricity than a 60 watt light bulb. If you have allergies and breathing problems this new air purifier will relieve those. If you have headaches that are related to pollution, it will also relieve those. If you have other health problems that are related to harmful pollution, this advanced air purifier will relieve those also. The patented technology developed by AirFree® kills up to 99.99% of all pollution and ALL microorganisms (germs and viruses) passing through the 400 degree ceramic core, yet it cannot burn anyone. It is totally safe.

The EdenPURE ® by Air Free ® works in 15 minutes to kill germs, viruses, mold, mildew, bacteria, pollen, pet dander, ozone, odors, dust mite allergens and much more. To learn more about the incredible healthy air offered by the EdenPURE® Air Purifiers by AirFree®, here is an exclusive interview with William T. Betts, Director of Research and Development for EdenPURE®. Q. You said this technology is used in hospitals? A. Yes. Hospitals trust the technology found in the EdenPURE ® by AirFree ® to stop the spread of infections and rid the air of pollution that causes serious health problems. There are hundreds of different kinds of disease-causing germs and viruses in hospitals and the technology found in the EdenPURE® Air Purifier by Air Free® is what hospitals pick to help stop the spread of infections. There is also other pollution that makes people ill, some to the point of being life threatening. EPA studies have found that indoor air pollution is linked to many serious health problems including heart attacks and cancer. Countless lives have been saved thanks in part to the AirFree ® technology found in EdenPURE® by AirFree® producing the clean, sterile environment hospitals need for surgeries and other life and death procedures. The revolutionary, patented AirFree® Sterilization System (TSS) kills up to 99.99% of ALL micro organisms passing through the 400 degree ceramic core. It also removes the most harmful air pollution other air purifiers do not. You will feel physically and mentally better because you will have less pollutants in the air making you feel run down and sick because of the 99.99% kill rate of micro organisms that cause respiratory problems and illness. And it’s incredibly safe around pets and children. The air that goes through the 400 degree Thermodynamic Sterilizing System is cooled off quickly and emits less heat than a person’s body heat, so there is NO chance of being burned. Q. What kinds of pollutants does EdenPURE® byAir Free® remove from the air? A. The EdenPURE® by Air Free ® works in 15 minutes to kill germs, viruses, mold, mildew, bacteria, pollen, pet

How it works: • No fan - runs silent • No filters or bulbs • No moving parts • Lasts virtually forever • Uses less electricity than a 60 watt light bulb (45 watts)

A number of other air purifiers produce harmful ozone to clean the air, but ozone has been found to decrease lung function, aggravate asthma, create shortness of breath and even cause cancer. Computers, printers, and other electronics also produce ozone. The EdenPURE® Air Purifier by AirFree ® does NOT produce any harmful ozone and the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute shows that the AirFree® technology in the EdenPURE® by Air Free ® destroys 26% of ozone in the air! And the unit emits NO sound at all, so you can have one in your bedroom without disturbing your sleep, leading to a good night’s rest. Q. Is the EdenPURE® by AirFree ® air purification technology proven to work? A. Yes. Over 20 independent, scientific tests from around the world prove the AirFree ® technology inside the EdenPURE® by AirFree® removes 99.9% of pollutants. Imagine what the EdenPURE® Air Purifiers by AirFree® can do for you and your family’s health. You will feel physically and mentally better because you will have no pollutants in the air that make you feel run down and sick. Q. Is it true other air purifiers actually cost hundreds of dollars in upkeep every year? A. Yes. HepaFilters can cost up to $289.95 and UV lightbulbs can cost up to $232.88 per bulb. But the EdenPURE® Air Purifiers by

AirFree® have NO filters or UV lightbulbs to replace, saving you up to $289.95 every year!

From page 1 manage a large group of riders,” he said, reporting that prior to the beginning of the ride, Tomasik talks about the route the group will take, reviews safety issues and reminds cyclists they should not ride more than two abreast while on Lakeside Drive. “We need to be vigilant about letting riders know they should not be more than two abreast,” he said. “But a lot of motorists don’t give us the required four feet on a pass, either.” Hogan, who says he is only looking out for the safety of bicyclists and motorists, says cyclists must follow the same rules of the road as opera-

tors of motor vehicles. Cyclists must stop at stop signs and must obey the speed limit of 35 miles an hour on Lakeside Drive. “Our police officers have pulled a couple of cyclists over for running stop signs,” Hogan said. “They have issued warnings but no citations. We just want to get the warning out to them that they are being watched.” Musial thinks that, because of cell phones, the issue of cyclists on Lakeside Drive may be blown out of proportion. “As soon as someone sees something, like a cyclists going through a stop sign, they’re on their cell phone with 911,” he said, reporting there have

“I probably travel the lake road more than anyone in the borough,” Musial added. “I”ve never had an issue with a biker not moving to the furthest right when I come upon them.” Musial said most motorists are aware that cyclists use the lake road so they slow down; however, some motorists are in too much of a hurry and don’t like slowing down when they come upon a cyclist.


The issue of cyclists was raised by a borough resident at a recent borough council meeting, prompting Hogan to meet with Police Chief Charles Musial to make sure motorists and cyclists traveling Lakeside Drive are safe. “State law requires cyclists to ride no more than two abreast on state roads,” said Hogan. “Lakeside Drive becomes a whole lot narrower if you come upon a group of bicycles. We’re just trying to get cyclists to ride single file.” Halsor, who participates in regular Wednesday evening rides coordinated by Mike Tomalis and leaving from Grotto Pizza at the lake, said the problem of cyclists riding more than two abreast occurs when the ride first starts. “In the beginning of the ride, there’s a lot of socializing among the riders,” Halsor said. “Beyond the lake, the group thins out.” A resident of Dallas Borough but a Harveys Lake taxpayer and a member of that borough’s Environmental Advisory Council, Halsor said there are sometimes as many as 40 riders on the Wednesday evening rides. “It’s challenging to

Back Mountain teams have thrived, continuing their recent history of success. Tom Robinson For The Dallas Post

Players who once battled against each other for local bragging rights in Back Mountain Major League Baseball split into age-group based, All-Star teams when Little League Baseball started its postseason tournament process. Faced with the chance to show their abilities against players from other leagues around northeastern Pennsylvania, the Back Mountain teams have thrived, continuing their recent history of success. Back Mountain teams reached this week’s state tournament play in two of the three age groups covered by the Major League and came within one game of making it in the other. “It’s peer pressure in a way,” said Todd Paczewski, manager of the 9-10-year-old team. “Everybody wants to keep up with everybody else.” The youngest players within the league spent the spring trying to keep up with the best players in the Back Mountain before taking on opponents their own age. “The kids are right there every day playing youth soccer with them, playing youth basketball with them,” Paczewski

said of the slightly older players who have established levels of success across multiple sports. “We don’t have a lack of confidence.” 11-12 YEAR oLDs

The Back Mountain American team won a district title before falling in the section championship game to North Pocono on the 11-12-year-old level that advances teams toward the famous Little League World Series in Williamsport each year. Back Mountain American, in the 10-11 age group, and Back Mountain National, in 9-10, won both district and section titles. “It just goes to show that Little League Baseball is not dying in the Back Mountain,” said league president Steve Skammer. “The other sports are great because we have kids who choose to play soccer and lacrosse and tennis or whatever, but a lot of kids still choose to play Little League Baseball and are quite successful at it. “We’re kind of proud of it.” Counting the 11-12-yearold softball team, the Back Mountain Little League produced four district champions and, for the first time, three state tournament teams. “Unfortunately, this year they are in Mansfield andnear

Pittsburgh so it’s difficult for regular fans to get there,” Skammer said of the state baseball tournaments. The 9-10-year-olds started state play in West Middlesex Township, near the Ohio border, Tuesday night.

The 10-11-year-old team was scheduled to get started in the state tournament at the Southern Tioga Little League field in Mansfield Friday night. The oldest players in the group, the 11-12-year-old team, made it to the state tour-

nament two years ago on the 9-10 level. They came within a game of returning each of the past two years, losing to North Pocono in a winner-take-all game for the Section 5 title each time. Back Mountain American

Puzzle answers from Page 2

From page 8 the 11-12 team. “They pitched the same kid (Steve McNulty). We still haven’t figured him out.” Ethan Zawatski’s fifth home run of the sectional tournament gave Back Mountain American a brief lead in the final game. Derek Answini, Dalton Simpson, Mark Roginski, Darren Kerdesky, John Betzko, Michael Doggett, Michael Collins, Mason Gattuso, Michael Anderson, Beaudyn Lewis, Michael Luksic and Zawatski made up the team roster. Jeff Doggett said the team quickly formed a winning unit when it got together this season. “That particular team has played together in all-star tournaments and postseason tournament since they were 8 years old,” he said. “We’ve spent a lot of time together. That really helps because All-Star season is very short in terms of practice and preparation.” Doggett said the group has developed into a poised team. “Our guys never get too high or too low,” Doggett said. “If we hit a home run or had a big inning, you’d be pressed to tell if we had hit two homers or given up two. “Baseball is one of the few sports where if you try too hard, it hurts you. You have to slow down and maintain poise and try not to do too much.” Doggett praises the leadership of Skammer, a Villanova University Sports Hall of Famer who can be found stopping by an occasional practice to offer insight. Knowledgeable coaches, including Joe Phillips, a former four-year player at Penn State who is the manager of the 10-11-year-old All-Stars, also help, along with a dedicated group of players. “I think baseball’s important to our community,” Doggett said. “I think a lot of kids in a lot of age groups do more than just come to Little League practice and play Little League games.” That dedication extends beyond Little League Baseball to other travel teams and offseason training. “I could name 50 kids at various ages who are swinging the bat year round,” Doggett said. “They’re working at it 10-to-12 months a year. “Like anything else, if you’re invested in it, you’re going to get better.” 10-11 Year olDs

The Back Mountain American 10-11 team that won the Section 5 title to reach the state event in Mansfield is a good example. After advancing to the state 9-10-year-old tournament last season, all 12 players and Phillips, the manager, stayed together to create the Back Mountain Bombers travel team. Phillips said, in an interview earlier this year, that it was the camaraderie of the players and parents from the state trip that led to the players wanting to stick together. When it came time to select this year’s all-star squad, the 12 players made it again, along with Michael Starbuck. The returning players are Jake Connolly, Justin Finarelli, Christopher Langan, Jack Lukasavage, Matt Maransky, Will McCrum, Lucas McGeehan, Sam Nocito, Frankie Nockley, Brett Ostroski, Todd Phillips and Dylan Schuster. Starbuck, McCrum and Phillips combined on a five-hitter July 21 when Back Mountain American defeated host Dunmore, 5-1, in the Section 5 championship game. Phillips had three hits while Nockley and Nocito added two each.

9-10 Year olDs

The Back Mountain National 9-10-yearold team’s trip to West Middlesex got off to an interesting start. There was a power outage at the tournament banquet Monday night. Weather problems, including a tornado warning, delayed the start of play Tuesday and forced Back Mountain into a late night game that then went to an extra inning for a 7-5 loss to South Columbia. Paczewski said depth, both in hitting and pitching, got his team to the state tournament. “We hit very well,” he said. “We like to hit fast pitching.” In the Section 5 final, the team produced 14 hits in a 9-3 victory over Mountaintop. It was the second straight game, including a 13-6 win over Mountaintop the night before, that 10 of the 12 players on the roster had at least one hit. “We’re deep on hitting and we have eight or nine kids who can pitch and throw strikes,” Paczewski said. The multiple pitching options helped the team get through five games in five days at sectionals. The 9-10-year-old roster features Ty Osipower, Max Paczewski, Kyle Sincavage, Zach Holthaus, Xander Shaner, Aidan Conrad, Connor Morgan, Michael Ropietski, Ben Fife, Michael Rother, Zach McEntee and Dakota Banks.
