Two state troopers spotted Wentz, who fit the description of the robber, as he was walking on foot on Main Street near Bonnie and Clyde’s. As troopers approached , Wentz allegedly fled, attempted to resist arrest when he was stop-

ped and was successfully detained. Police located a “large quantity of money” totaling $2,006 in Wentz’ pants pocket. Wentz allegedly provided a detailed statement to police about how he had planned the robbery, entered the bank, made his demand and gave a description of the outfit he was wearing. Wentz intended to “lay low”

He was arraigned Wednesday by Magisterial District Judge Ted Giglio and held for $100,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for January 11.

C.S. council against raising fines BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Borough council unanimously voted against raising the fine for unpaid parking tickets from $5 to $10, if paid within 48 hours, under the provision that a committee made up of council members, business people and the police department looks for ways to improve the system. Borough President Gerrie Carey emphasized the importance of the meters to the downtown area. “They have proved to promote turnover for the merchants and free up parking spaces on the streets,” she said. Carey feels the meter pricing is reasonable as a nickel provides 12 minutes and a quarter provides an hour. According to Police Chief Lou Vitale, borough police write an average of 30-35 parking tickets each month. Councilwoman Patty Lawler discussed the idea of merchants adopting meters near their businesses so customers would not have to pay to shop. The idea received support from Barry Kaplan, incoming president of the Abington Business Professional Association (ABPA). Kaplan, co-owner of Everything Natural, agreed with the need for meters, but was against increasing the fine. “I’ve lost business over a $5 fine,” he said. “People can go shop at competitors of mine that have free parking.” Carey, along with Councilmen Don Moyer and David Jenkins agreed to form a committee regarding options for future sewer billing in the borough. They plan to meet with representatives from Clarks Green to discuss whether a partnership would be mutually beneficial. The borough needs to make a decision on its new billing policy by Sept. 30. Councilman Roy Davis urged council to take a “more stringent and consistent” approach to billing residents. In 2004, borough council adopted the International Property Maintenance Code. Council voted to update its ordinance to reflect the changes made to the code in See Council , Page 4

Allowance for new truck is included

FACTORYVILLE With its budget done, the Factoryville Borough Council expressed a feeling of confidence in the year ahead during its monthly meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 3. “Our budget is done and to talk about any other things we may need or want, it is simply the wrong time of the year,” said Tom Davis of the Finance Committee. “People are just getting over December and we need to keep our eye on the budget and keep things under watch. I am really pleased with the financials of the borough.” . The budget was passed during council’s Dece,ber 14 meeting and includes an allowance for a new truck . Member Genevieve Evans noted that she did not agree with the allowance during last month’s meeting. "People are struggling and here we are making am allowance for a new truck,” she said. “The budget is a fair budget and it is only a little increase and all but it still hurts people that have to pay for it.”. Davis added, “We have accomplished a lot with this budget and passed budgets and the last time we increased the budget was in 2006 so we are doing really great.” Member Charles Wrobel also said, “we are doing a gradual increase with the budget and we are slowly increasing the budget line for the purchase of a new truck, a dollar here and a dollar here is a lot easier then a lot of dollars at one time, and we are being conservative where we can, but needs have to be meet.” Roads and Maintance member Bill Edwards said, “I am the last one that wants to raise taxes but we are in desperate need of a truck and, believe me, I wouldn’t say we need one if we didn’t.” In the end, the board approved the 2012 budget with only Evans voting against it. In other business, Solicitor Attorney Paul Litwin informed the board that he has reviewed the recent storm water ordinance and discovered it is missing some information. He recommend the board takemore time to review the document prior to approval. The board agreed. It was reported that more energy efficient lighting has been installed in the town municipal building and at the sewer plant. The board also approved the installation of exterior lighting at the sewer plant not to exceed $2,500 under the lighting upgrade. Board member Dan Engler informed the board that in the spring he will present suggestions to replace the carpet in the town offices. The board also approved a pension increase of one percent during the Dec. 14 meeting after reviewing a plan submitted by Reilly Management in regards to road maintenance.

Clarks Summit native Bruce Beemer, 43, chief of staff to the state attorney general’s office, will prosecute the case against former Penn State University athletic director Tim Curley and former Penn State University senior vice president Gary Schultz. The two men are being tried on charges of lying to a grand jury about an allegation of child sex abuse against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Beemer has handled highprofile cases that have earned attention before in his career, and, although he declined to speak about any specifics regarding the case for legal and ethical reasons, he did say the amount of attention this case is receiving is something different. “I think this case is unique

because of the amount of attention and the national attention and interest,” Beemer said. Beemer is a 1986 graduate of Abington Heights High School. During his four years at the school, he was a member of the football and basketball teams. He was a captain on the basketball team’s 1986 Lackawanna League championship team during his junior year. After high school, he received his bachelor’s degree from The University of Scranton before attending the University of Pittsburgh School of Law to follow in his parents’ footsteps. “My parents (Barry and Diane Beemer) were law partners together, until my mom passed in 1999,” said Beemer. “My parents had an enormous influence on my wanting to become a lawyer.”

Still practicing law in his office on North Abington Road, Barry Beemer said he is proud his son was chosen for this case. “He’ll do well. He’s a seasoned prosecutor who has handled a number of highprofile cases,” Barry Beemer said. Having practiced law for 45 years, Barry Beemer has a wealth of legal knowledge which his son has taken advantage of over the years. “I’ve learned a tremendous amount from my father,” Bruce Beemer said. “He’s told me to handle each case that I receive with the same attention…and to be honorable and ethical in your prosecution.” Beemer, his wife, Jodi, and their two children, Jackson and Jordan, reside in Bradford Woods, a suburb of Pittsburgh.

Scouting Scene With Tyler VanGorder

Scouts make campout plans December is a month filled with happiness and joy. This was the same for the Scouts from Troop 160. Since this time of year is very busy, we do not have a campout in December. However, we prepared for some future trips. One of them is the January polar bear campout. This is a campout where the Scouts sleep outside in tents during the cold winter nights. In past years, the temperatures have gone in the negatives. We also have been preparing for the Klondike derby in February. This is a competition held at Goose Pond Boy Scout Reservation where several troops compete to finish the race with the best time and score. The troops have sled teams of around eight members. They have to push and pull the sled, similar to a dog team. They travel to

stations spread out all around the camp. At these stations they must use their Scout skills to complete unique tasks. December is when Troop 160 has its annual holiday party. This is a fun time where the Scouts exchange white elephant gifts. White elephant gifts are creative gag gifts. The Scouts put their gifts on a table and receive a number. Then, through a raffle system, numbers are called out. The Scouts then pick from a gift on the table. Afterwards, the Scouts clean up and eat from tables filled with cookies and other treats. The holiday party is an event that many Scouts look forward to. It is a very fun time and we hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday and a great new year. Remember, a Scout is courteous.

Scouts provide a variety of gifts for the white elephant exchange at their annual holiday party. Tyler VanGorder has the rank of Life in Boy Scout Troop 160 from Clarks Summit. He is a sophomore student at Abington Heights High School. For more information, visit troop160bsa.org.

AHSD no longer under investigation BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

The Abington Heights School District learned earlier this month that its scores from the 2009 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment are no longer being investigated. In July, Abington Heights was one of several regional schools “flagged” in a 2009 study that used statistical analysis to ferret out possible cheating on state standardized tests. While the report about the analysis contends the data can indicate where cheating “may” have occurred, it repeatedly stresses the analysis is not proof of cheating. “In this report, there are 26 different categories in which you can be flagged,” said Mahon during the school board’s July meeting. “The report does a statistical analysis based on comparisons between student grade level performance and statewide performance. Essentially, these categories can be broken down into two groups: erasures and change in scores.” Mahon explained that in regard to erasures, the group looked at how many answers were erased and changed from wrong to right. Each district’s average number of answers changed from wrong to right was compared to the state’s average. If the district’s average was statistically higher than the state average, they were be flagged. The data from 2008 was compared to 2009, and districts were also flagged if test scores in one particular year rose greater than would be predicted. Abington Heights received no flags for erasures, but as a result of reading scores in 11th grade going from 68 percent proficient in 2008 to 85 percent proficient in 2009, the district was flagged for a change in scale score from 2008 to 2009 in reading, a change in advanced proficiency percentages from 2008 to 2009 in reading and a difference between the reading and math scores. The report didn’t take into account the fact that the 68 percent proficient the district earned in 2008 was unusually low, as Abington Heights averaged a combined score of 81.4 percent proficient on the test during the 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 school years. The report also fails to acknowledge that these scores were earned by two different populations of students. Abington Heights School District issued a press release stating that the administration conducted a thorough analysis of a Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) report and was able to demonstrate in its response to PDE that the report misinterpreted data and drew the wrong conclusions about Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) results in the District. The press release also stated the district received a letter dated January 5, five months after Abington Heights School District’s response was submitted, PDE Deputy Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education Carolyn C. Dumaresq, Ed.D., acknowledged Abington Heights School District’s response and notified Mahon it has been determined no further inquiry is necessary. Mahon wrote in an email, “. . .the letter completely vindicates our strongly held position that no Abington Heights student or employee acted inappropriately in any way.” The matter is considered closed.

Sewer Authority will seek input from engineer BY SUSAN REBENSKY Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE - Steve Swift, maintenance and sewer operator, addressed the Factoryville Sewer Authority Board on Tuesday, Jan. 3 with an ongoing problem at the sewer plant, but said the problem seems to be correcting itself slowly. “We have been monitoring the sewer numbers and they have been getting higher due to certain bacteria that are coming through the sewer plant, but we are treating them and it seems to be getting better,” Swift said. “The bacteria currently won’t let the sludge settle so that is why we are having issues.” Even though results are

being seen, Swift said the numbers are steady and he asked the board to contact the engineer to assist with the matter. Bill Edwards, of Roads and Maintenance, also spoke in regards to the issue at the sewer plant. “The windchill that is blowing across the open part of the sewer plant is causing certain parts in the plant to freeze which is a serious problem,” said Edwards. “I can tell you if the part freezes and breaks, you are looking at a $15,000 repair bill. We are doing everything we can but we do need to contact the engineer.” The board agreed to contact BCM Engineers of Clarks Summit.

Executive Officer, “We’ll also be talking about deaf culture and the importance of meaningful interactions with the deaf and hard-ofhearing community. We look forward to welcoming everyone.” Both ASL 1 and ASL 2 will be offered. Assessments can be scheduled the first day of class to determine

level of skill. Evaluations will be conducted throughout the session to assist participants in monitoring progress. One six-week course will be offered in South Abington at the school’s campus, 537 Venard Rd., South Abington Township every Thursday from February 2 to March 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. Another six-week course

will be offered in Scranton at the Green Ridge Assembly of God every Tuesday from January 31 to March 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. The fee for the courses is $65 and is due when registration is submitted. For more information or to register, contact Mary Ann Stefko at 585.1000 or mstefko@thescrantonschool.org.

THE ABINGTON JOURNAL♦CLARKS SUMMIT, PA

AHSB discusses policy change

BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT - The Abington Heights School District may welcome new faces in 2012. At its monthly work session on January 4, the school board discussed the possibility of implementing a policy that would allow the district to take in tuition students who live outside the district. Superintendent Michael Mahon, Ph.D., explained that the district is looking to revamp and create a new policy manual. “Our policy manual is in dire need of updating,” said Mahon. Mahon explained that, for a fee, the Pennsylvania School Board Association (PSBA) has a service that will update the policy manual, and provide continual updates as they are required for the district. He met with members of the PSBA in Harrisburg on Thursday, Jan. 5, and received several rates for what those services could cost. If the district decides to go with PSBA, “over the course of the next 12 months, or 18 months, our thought is we would, as a board, work on this because they don’t just hand you the book,” Mahon said. “The board has to read it and make sure they’re comfortable with the policies and make the appropriate adjustments.” One of the policies that could be included in the new manual would be one that allows students living outside the district the opportunity to pay tuition to attend a school in the Abington Heights School District. The school’s current policy states that outside tuition students are prohibited, but Mahon feels now may be the time to change that. “We need to find new revenue streams,” said Mahon. “And, as I sit and think about what is it we do well, I

think we educate well, and potentially there is a market of students outside our school district who would consider paying to come here.” If the district implements this policy, Mahon doesn’t think it will be an open-door policy for any student wishing to attend Abington Heights. Rather, the district would identify slots in different grades where there is room to fit more students without overcrowding the class. No formal decision was made on the subject, and the board will continue discussions on the issue. In other business, Mahon said Bill Risse, director of the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board, has been in contact with the district to see if it would be interested in partnering with the recreation board on a turf field. The recreation board has received grants and other sources of funding, which they are planning to use to install turf on International Field on Winola Road in the Abington Area Community Park. If Abington decides to enter into a partnership with the group, it would gain access and share the field with the Junior Comets and the Abington Youth Soccer League. Abington Heights School Board President Cathy Hardaway asked what the district’s current need is for a new field. Mahon, who had spoken to Abington Heights High School Principal Pam Murray and athletic director Jeremy Ruby on the matter, asked, “would having an additional field be helpful to us? Yes. To say there is a crying need for such a field, I don’t think you’d be able to.” The Abington Heights School Board will meet again for its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 18.

C.S. resident graduates from Georgia SW State University Natasha Jackson, of Clarks Summit, graduated from Georgia Southwestern State University during the fall 2011 fommencement feremony held on Saturday, Dec. 10 in Convocation Hall of the Student Success Center. Jackson earned a

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Keystone College Concerts and Lectures Series will present “The Manuel Scott Story,” on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Theatre in Brooks. The presentation is free and open to the public. Manuel Scott’s story is told in the 2007 award-winning movie, “Freedom Writers” starring Hilary Swank about a young teacher who inspires her class of at-risk students to learn tolerance, apply themselves and pursue education beyond high school. Scott shares his story of how he went from being a poor student and a high school dropout to a successful entrepreneur and Ph.D. candidate. At the age of 14, Scott dropped out of high school and his English grammar was so poor that he classified as an English as a Second Language student. By the age of 16, he

Thanks to an amazing transformation, Scott has defied all the odds. The high school drop-out now holds degrees from the University of California at Berkeley and Trinity University and is currently working on his Ph.D. in Chicago, Ill.

Who directed "War Horse"?

It was wonderful to see the Dietrich filled with 27 young thespians last week as the Dietrich’s After School Theatre Arts program kicked off. In the course of this eight-week program, students will learn about all aspects of theatre arts under the direction of Jennifer Jenkins, Dietrich Theater Cultural Programming and Theatre Arts Director. During the first week of classes, the group was very busy discussing what theatre is, learning warm-up exercises, playing theatre games and auditioning. They even started developing their own characters for their upcoming play “Life on Mars.” As the class progresses, participants will also develop a script and create props, costumes and scenery for the show. Plus they will learn about movement, lighting and sound. We can’t wait to see how the students’ production develops. Speaking of theatre, the Dietrich will hold auditions for the upcoming community-based theatre production of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” which will be presented on the Dietrich stage for a five-day run from March 21-25. Auditions will be held by appointment on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 28 and 29 from noon to 5 p.m. Actors needed are four women, ages 18 to 50, and 12 men, ages 18 to 60. Actors will be asked to read from the script at the audition. Script sides are currently available at our website www.dietrichtheater.com. Call the Dietrich at 996.1511 for an appointment. We are also looking for people interested in working behind the scenes for the production. If you have technical or backstage experience or would like to learn, please give us call. In addition to theatre activities, the Dietrich has an upcoming event for all ages to enjoy. Storyteller Fiona Powell will entertain us as she sits at her spinning wheel and spins tales from around the world on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 11 a.m. Wherever your ancestors are from, Fiona probably knows a tale See Dietrich , Page 9

from that land. Although Fiona specializes in tales from her native Wales, Scotland and England, over the years people have “gifted” her with stories from around the world. All ages are welcome to attend this free event and experience a morning of stories. The Dietrich will start up a Kundalini yoga class with instructor Barbara Tierney this Saturday, Jan. 14. Through this class, you will experience the gifts that Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan,

has to offer as you explore breath, movement and mantra, leading you into a deep connection with your own truth. You are welcome to sign up for the full series of six classes for $60 or drop in at $15 per class. While this practice of yoga is challenging, everyone can do it.

being “kind of on the dark side.” At Keystone, Sjogren is a visual arts major with a concentration in graphic design and printmaking and minor in psychology. Rudolph spoke of the program’s continued success, describing it as “a push to combine music, art and literature in one place.” “It’s a very worthwhile program,” she said. “Not everyone can go to a concert on a Saturday night, so a Saturday afternoon event makes it easy to enjoy classical music. It’s a very relaxed environment. It peaks people’s interest for visual arts as well.” The program will soon receive national attention on the Internet through the Library as Incubator Project. According to Rudolph, the project is a “website for librarians working to serve the community through the arts.” She explained that she received a Huffington Post article about the program from a fellow librarian and wanted to get involved. After contacting one of the project founders, Rudolph was invited to submit

an article about Second Saturday’s. “It’s a great way to continue this idea,” she said. According to Rudolph, the library has artists and musicians lined up through August. Artist Barry Singer will be featured in both February and March. Rudolph explained that Singer produces unique print artwork, using fish and described the upcoming display as featuring “some whimsical stuff and watercolors.” Cohen said that next month’s musical act will be the Bill Washer Trio. Washer is known as a member of a Latin jazz quartet that performs weekly at Amici’s Restaurant, Clarks Summit. Rudolph also extended her thanks to the Scranton Area Foundation, the Pennsylvania Partner for the Arts, and local funders for support of the Second Saturday’s series. For more information about the performance and other events at the Abington Community Library, call 587.3440.

He wrote a newspaper column for 14 years for the Suburban Weekly, the “Rocket Courier” in Wyalusing and a newspaper in Old Forge. His stories were published in three papers every week for 52 weeks a year. “The column never took a vacation,” he said. “But when our kids left home, they took all my good material with them.

Gretchen Eagen agreed that it was a great experience for her daughter. “I’m impressed that Brianna had a passion for a mission and had the opportunity to follow through with it,” she said. She also pointed out that it was a year-long process, first raising the money, then going on the actual trip and now sharing her experience with others and educating the community on the needs that still exist in New Orleans.

He said she showed a passion and desire for the project, as opposed to it simply being something to do or something someone was forcing on her. Eagen accumulated 36 hours of community service during the trip, which ran from August 8 to 16. Her team worked on the service project, rebuilding the structures of houses during the first part of the

day and went sightseeing during the second half when it was too hot to work. Her favorite sightseeing activity was when her team went air boating. It was also while out on the water that she had the opportunity to hold a baby alligator. Another unique opportunity came in the form of a local funeral, which Eagen said was nothing like funerals back home. It included a walk through the different places of importance from the deceased person’s life, music and dancing. Eagen enjoyed learning

about the culture of New Orleans, seeing it as being different from anywhere else in the world. She was impressed with the people’s commitment to the city even after the disaster and the welcoming attitude they had. “Every stranger there…the people…they’re just so friendly,” she said. Her team also visited various tourist attractions, such as the Superdome, the old and new levees, Preservation Hall, the French Market and Café Du Monde. It was not only the sightseeing that Egen enjoyed, but working on the

service project was fun as well. “We played music and got a hardcore workout,” she said. She also learned a lot about building walls, nailing, plastering and cutting boards for ceilings from helping re-build the two houses. She laughed about the fact that she was the shortest person on her team, but somehow always ended up with the job involving the highest part of the ceiling. Her team was accommodating, however, always making sure “Brianna’s bucket” was nearby for her to stand on. Although she didn’t

know anyone at the beginning of the trip, she made friends by the end and still keeps in contact with them via the social media bnetwork Facebook. Eagen’s team also had the opportunity to meet and work alongside Jerry, the owner of one of the homes the team worked on, which usually doesn’t happen in those projects. “He was so grateful for what we did,” she said, “It was fun getting to meet him.” The experience of the trip is something she will never forget, and she hopes to do something like it again someday.

LAKELAND -The Lady Chiefs scored more points in the third quarter than they tallied in the entire first half, en route to a 44-27 victory over the Lackawanna Trail Lady Lions Thursday, Jan. 5 at Lakeland High School. Alissa Steier led Lakeland’s third-quarter charge, scoring seven points and dishing out a few assists. “My last game, I shot 0-12 and I knew I needed to pick that up,” Steier said. “We just had to focus and we had to have a whole team effort because we knew we needed to stay up.” Lakeland’s Nicole Davitt scored on a lay-up off an assist from Steier at the start of the third quarter. After Clarissa Eggleston hit a lay-up on the other end for the Lady Lions, Steier nailed a three-pointer to give the Lady Chiefs a sixpoint lead. Later in the quarter, Steier hit another three-pointer to give Lakeland its first double-digit lead of the game. After scoring just 15 points in the first half, Lakeland outscored the Lady Lions, 17-8, in the third quarter, stretching the Lady Chiefs’ lead to 3220. Lakeland shot poorly in the first half, but held a slim halftime lead thanks to its defensive pressure, which allowed 12 first-half points. “I told them in the locker room to put together the effort you give on the floor with how you feel after it and it’s worth it,” Valada said. “The effort was definitely there tonight.” Lakeland’s full-court press and hard-nose defense made it difficult for the Lady Lions to find a rhythm on offense. “They played full speed and we kind of hesitated,” Lackawanna Trail coach Errol Mannick said. “If we passed hard and went quick, we got lay-ups but when we didn’t do that, we got a turnover.” Eggleston scored 17 of the Lady Lions’ 27 points, including the team’s first nine points of the game, keeping Lackawanna Trail within striking distance in the first half. “She’s a really hard worker and her attitude is fantastic,” Mannick said. “She’s taking the outside shot which she never took before and she’s got a really nice one. She’s also driving to the basket hard.” Allison Kraky led Lakeland with 13 points while Dana Prudente chipped in 12. Lakeland will face off against Susquehanna at 7:15 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12, at Susquehanna High School while Lackawanna Trail plays Elk Lake at home.

Lackawanna Trail’s Stephen Miller finished Friday’s victory over Lakeland with 27 points, 22 rebounds and 10 blocks.

BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

FACTORYVILLE - Lackawanna Trail’s 7’ 1” center Stephen Miller entered the game well within striking distance of a personal achievement, just 15 points shy of 1,000 for his career. The milestone was secondary in his mind when the ball was tipped, though. “My goal was just to help the team get the win,” Miller said. “They did a great job getting me the ball to get my 1,000 points, all the credit goes to them.” Miller, who finished with 27 points, 22 rebounds and 10 blocked shots, couldn’t help but crack a smile when talking about the applause he received when

scoring his 1,000th point. “It felt pretty good, I’m not going to lie,” he said. The Lions jumped out to a 10-4 lead in the first six minutes of the game and held a 14-8 advantage at the end of the first quarter. “We told the kids in the locker room that we think the biggest thing that helped us was the fast start,” Lackawanna Trail head coach Andrew Kettel said. “In the beginning of the year when we were struggling, we were coming out flat. We’re coming out with energy and we’re playing team basketball now. That’s a big part of our success.” Lions’ guard Lyle Sweppenheiser scored seven of his 11 points in the fourth quarter, in

which Trail opened with a 12-5 run to stretch its lead to 14 points with 3:27 remaining in the game. “We always talk about how we have to finish games strong,” Sweppenheiser said. “I just wanted to close out the game and I let the shots come to me.” Kettel was proud of his team’s defensive effort, holding Lakeland’s leading scorer Kyle Kiehart to 10 points. “Kyle’s an excellent basketball player,” he said. “We had two seniors, Lyle Sweppenheiser and Nick Sujkowski, on him. They never stop fighting and they’re going to find a way to win. They did a super job on a great basketSee Lions , Page 12
