conomic downturn is one factor that led to the closing of two area eateries: Summit Diner and Amici. A number of loyal customers met with disappointment early last week after finding their favorite diner no longer open for business. Summit Diner, located at108 South State St., Clarks Summit, closed its doors permanently Sunday afternoon, Feb. 26. “It was a number of reasons, three years ago…my business started to tail off a little bit, because of the economy,” said owner Stephen Seamon. The dip in business, combined with some family matters Seamon had to attend to led to him beginning to explore the idea of closing the diner. The owner of the business, not the building, Seamon said he was given an opportunity to get out of his lease and decided to take it. “That’s why it kind of abruptly came on Sunday,” said Seamon of the closing. In the early1990s, Seamon was a cook at the diner, which was voted “Best Diner” for 2008, 2009 and 2011in The Abington Journal’s Best of The Abingtons readers’ poll. After buying into Blue Bird Diner in1996, he left Summit Diner for a few years until its previous owner, Ed Shermansky, was ready to retire and asked Seamon if he would be interested in taking over.

The building that housed the Summit Diner, at 108 South State St., Clarks Summit will not remain vacant too long. A sign posted March 1 announced that Silver Spoon Diner will be opening at the location. Seamon became the sole owner in September, 2002. Due to the abrupt closure, the diner staff did not get an opportunity to say goodbye to some customers. But Seamon, along with members of his staff, were packing up the diner last week and had a chance to talk to some who stopped by and had not heard news of the closure. “The last two days they’ve been stopping by,” said Seamon. “We had good customers, that’s one thing. It’s (the closing is) not because of the customers. The people are wonderful. Hopefully I’ll see them down the road somewhere sometime.” The building will not remain vacant too long.

CLARKS SUMMITCharles Charlesworth, owner of Angels Galeria and chairman of the Arts Council of the Abingtons, asked council at the Feb. 28 work session to close Depot Street for the Arts and Wine Festival Aug. 11. According to Charlesworth, the number of applications has almost doubled since last year’s firsttime event. The number of vendors will be limited to 40 and there will be five wineries, up from three last year. Council member Don Moyer suggested holding a meeting at the borough building with the borough manager and police chief to coordinate the plans. Borough Manager Virginia Kehoe also suggested that council should start reaching property owners about the event to avoid any problems. Charlesworth voiced his concern over the lighting in the borough on Depot Street. and State Street. Charlesworth said he witnessed a women fall on De-

Kiki’s Creamery, located at 715 N. State St., Clarks Summit, was the first target of the Scranton Cash Mob on Saturday, March 3. The mob was coordinated by Angela Sheehan, owner of Why Not Designs, located at 706 E. Market St., ScrantonScranton Cash Mob is trying to give small businesses a boost, by picking a different location each week in Scranton and the surrounding areas, and filling it with customers. Sheehan said she got the idea after hearing about a group of West Scranton High School students who held a cash mob at Vincenzo’s Pizzeria in Scranton. Kiki’s Creamery owner Stacey Selig

said every face she saw on Saturday morning was a new one, exposing her business to a new customer base. Sheehan will coordinate the effort each week. The business, day and time will be announced one day prior on Scranton Cash Mob’s Facebook page. Each person taking part in the cash mob is asked to spend at least $10. “$10 per person is kind of the goal. I know in the bigger cities it’s $20 but… I thought $10 would be great,” said Sheehan. For details on Scranton Cash Mob, visit http:// www.facebook.com/ScrantonCashMob?ref=ts#!/ScrantonCashMob?sk=wall, or call 342.6161.

Falling Springs request prompts questions in Ransom Twp.

With Leah Ducato Rudolph

BY ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER lbaumeister@theabingtonjournal.com

RANSOM TWP – More than 40 Ransom Township residents packed the Board of Supervisors meeting at the Township Building at 2435 Hickory Lane March 5. The main topic of discussion among the supervisors and residents was the possibility of the entrance of natural gas companies into the area. Supervisor Dennis Macheska read aloud a notice stating that Falling Springs Water Works, Inc. filed an application for approval with the Susquehanna River Basin Commission for surface water withdrawal of up to 800,000 gallons of water per day from the Falling Springs Reservoir for use in the development of natural gas wells in the Marcellus Shale Region. He also summarized correspondence from The Lackawanna County Association of Boroughs requesting the Township join them in passing a resolution asking general assembly for immediate measures on environmental regulations concerning gas drilling. Pa. State Police Motor Carrier Enforcement Supervisor Rion Stann was in attendance at the request of the supervisors to explain the current rules in existence for heavy trucks traveling local roads. He answered several questions from residents regarding the possible implications of hauling water from Falling Springs, should the application gain approval. Solicitor Edmund J. Scacchitti, Esq. reminded residents several times during the meeting that there is not much information to go on at this point in time and nothing is happening yet. “What I don’t want to do is create a hysteria in the township about what’s going to go on up there,” he said.

Double blessing

Teen volunteer assists Daffodil Days, hospice BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Asera Care Hospice senior provider relations manager Timmie Ott and Tami Graham annually seek volunteers to assist with Daffodil Days, the American Cancer Society’s largest fundraiser traditionally held the first week of spring. This year, fate intervened in the form of 16-year-old Clarks Summit resident, Brooke Storms, a junior at Abington Heights High School, who had been eager to volunteer for Hospice since 8th grade. Storms explained, “It sounded interesting to be able to help, keep them (Hospice patients) company, and be present. So I asked my mom if I could be a volunteer, but I was too young (at the time).” In October 2011, Storms became a volunteer at Asera Care Hospice, located at 749 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit, as part of a school project but also to fulfill her desire to help. “We have our graduation project in our junior year

(at Abington Heights High School) and one of the options for the project is volunteering, and my mind went to Hospice because that’s something I really want to volunteer for…It’s rewarding in and of itself to be with her (referring to her visit with a Hospice patient). As a Hospice volunteer, Storms has visited patients and will also assist with the upcoming Daffodil Days. Daffodil Days will be held March 19-25 from Our Lady of the Snows Church, 301 South State Street, Clarks Summit. For more than 20 years, Ott and Graham have served as co-chairpeople for Daffodil Days. Storms’ role in the upcoming Daffodil Days fundraiser will include posting fliers, selling daffodils at school and wrapping the daffodils with assistance from her friends. Volunteers will prepare approximately 1,000 daffodils for distribution to businesses and individuals who have

placed orders. Daffodils will also be available for sale at other locations in the Abingtons, including the Waverly Community House, Pennstar Banks in Dalton and Clarks Green, Sanderson State Street, State Street Grill and Caravia Fresh Foods. Ott said, “Because Brooke is in school we thought it would be a good idea for her to help us with the Daffodils. The students like to get involved because they know it’s making a difference.” Storms has plans to continue as a Hospice volunteer after completion of her project. The daffodils will be wrapped March 20 and delivered on March 21 and 22. Drivers are needed to help to deliver daffodils March 21 in the morning. Anyone interested in volunteering with Daffodil Days is asked to call Graham at 570.586.4060. Daffodils are $10 per bunch and proceeds from the sale are donated to the American Cancer Society.

Northeastern Pa. and the Pittsburgh area and has had the opportunity to perform with orchestras in many of the world’s great concert halls. In April of 2011, she competed with the Zelkowicz String Quartet and won third prize in the Silberman Chamber Music Competition. Due to her suc-

cesses during the 2010-2011 academic year, Henkelman was awarded the Mary and George Wilkins Scholarship for an Undergraduate Cellist. Stabinsky received his first musical lessons at the age of five from Michael Hoysock, his grandfather. In January 2007, he began presenting a

series of music performances in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area of Pennsylvania by local musicians and guest artists from around the world, primarily but not exclusively focused on improvisation. Stabinsky was also the 2008 recipient of the F. Lammot Belin Arts Scholarship.

The Rotary Club of the Abingtons is hosting a benefit Art Auction presented by Marlin Art Friday, March 23 at the Glen Oak Country Club in Clarks Summit. Preview will begin at 6:30 p.m. with complimentary wine, cheese and fruit served. The Auction will begin at 7:30 p.m. This unique event offers the opportunity to mingle with family and friends while enjoying an exciting evening of fine art, knowing the proceeds will benefit numerous Rotary projects both locally and internationally. Tickets are only $10 per person and may be obtained from any Rotary Club of the Abingtons member or by calling the chairs Donald J. Myer (E-mail: donaldjmyer@frontiernet.net , phone 586-1317) or Norbert Mayr (E-mail: nmayr@comcast.net , phone 335-2467), and available at the door that evening. GROUP STUDY EXCHANGE TRIP 2013 OPEN TO ALL ADULTS! Arrangements have been made to send a group study exchange team from District 7410 to Mexico next April 2013 for a four-week stay. The team, comprised of several non-Rotarians and led by a veteran Rotarian, will be visiting some beautiful cities. This is a wonderful opportunity for select individuals to get to know Rotary, to travel to a beautiful country, to experience the people and their culture. They will stay in Rotarian’s homes and spend their time with Rotarians native to the region. Since it is, in part, a vocational trip, the team will visit places of interest to their career. There they will have the opportunity to learn some new ideas and to share some of their own. This trip will open up a lot of opportunities to learn, develop skills, make new friends, enjoy the sightseeing and culture, and learn about what Rotary is and does. Rotary provides the round trip airline ticket. Host Rotarians meet the team at the airport and take care of them throughout the entire stay. The cost to individuals is very minimal. Check out the District website for information and applications: rotarydistrict7410.org Group Study Exchange. Applications are due Aug. 31. Contact Barb Petty barbararaypetty@comcast.net, phone 570885-0731 with any questions or for help with this process. INTERACT CLUB The Interact Club is selling candy bars.

A reason to run BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

Abington Heights High School teachers Eileen Healey and Lisa Imbriaco are embarking on a new adventure this April. The two recently joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and will be running in the St. Luke’s Half Marathon in Allentown on April 29. The 13- mile race will be the first long -distance race in which either teacher has ever participated. “I’ve never been a runner. I’ve toyed with walking and running, but I’ve never sustained running, so I’m trying to work up to that,” said Healey . “I’ve always been athletic, but I’ve never had to run long distances like this. In fact if you asked me what I thought of running, I’d have said I hated it,” said Imbriaco. It wasn’t a love of running that got the duo involved, but a desire to help. Healey said she received some information in the mail about Scranton’s Team in Training, whose participants are focused on raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodg-

kin’s disease and myeloma. She mentioned in passing to Imbriaco that she was going to join and the next day Imbriaco said she would like to participate, too. “The cause is definitely important,” said Imbriaco. The two began working with the other members of Team in Training in early February. Everyone on the team has some training to do each weekday individually. The team gets together on the weekends for a group run. Healey and Imbriaco credited the team with the improvements they’ve been able to make since joining. “I’m starting to enjoy it as I learn the technique,” said Imbriaco. “I think my form is improving and the ability to sustain a run for a longer amount of time, so eventually I’m hoping I’ll get to a point where I can run the whole thing,” said Healey. In addition to the team’s guidance and encouragement, they’ve also found outside sources to inspire them to continue working hard to complete their goal.

Courtney Talbot, 28, , who recently lost her battle with leukemia. Imbriaco will run in honor of Sam Fortese who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in October of 2010. “One of the things they told us at the kickoff night was they had patients and their families talking, and they said, ‘when you wake up in the morning you have a choice if you want to run or not run… when we get up we have to take our treatments, we don’t have a choice,’” said Imbriaco.

Outside-the-box thinking, spontaneity and teamwork have been known to generate unique and workable solutions in many aspects of life. These skills and more were honed at The Northeast Pennsylvania Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournament held March 3 at Pocono Mountain West High School. Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problemsolving competition. Students from grades K-12 receive a problem at the beginning of the school year that they must solve in an 8-minute skit that includes original costumes, scenery, technical elements and more. The event is visual as students are judged on the style and creativity of the appearance of all aspects of their performances. This year more than 700 students from 45 schools in Bradford, Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Northampton, Pike Schuylkill, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties took part in the event. Mary Beth Adelman, coordinator for the Abington Heights school district, believes students learn many valuable skills throughout the event process. “One of the big goals of Odyssey of the Mind is giving the opportunity for creative problem solving,” Adelman said. “The program teaches students that there is more than one way to solve a problem. Also, students have to do all the work themselves. The coaches can’t provide ideas or assist in any part of the projects. It’s all the kids. I think it’s quite empowering and they come up with some amazing things.” In all, 16 teams competed from the Abington Heights School District with nine advancing to the State Finals April

14 at Pocono Mountain East High School. “It was a great day filled with amazing creativity, teamwork, and fun,” Adelman said. At state finals, teams will compete to advance to World Finals at Iowa State University in May. All who finished in first or second place advanced to the state finals.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2012

February hosted the Klondike Derby. This is a daylong competition between several Boy Scout troops at Goose Pond Boy Scout Reservations. They have been training for weeks and this is their day to prove their skills. Troop 160 for the past couple of weeks has been practicing their scout skills this included first aid, knots, orienteering, fire building, as well as other skills. There were nine stations each having a specific task that need to be done. One asked scouts to boil an egg with fire and tripod that the scouts had to make. One made scouts use pre-made sling shots to shoot at targets for points. The interesting thing about the Klondike is that the scouts must first build a sled before the competition. They put all of their gear on this sled and pull it all around camp to their events. This year was even better than past competitions due to new rules and regulations. The event was themed around a Wild West gold rush. Every event was scored, and based on that score the sled teams received one to 15 gold nuggets. While they were going to their next events the teams could be stopped by a claim jumper. They then asked the scouts different questions. If they got it right they would receive gold but if they got it

wrong they would lose some. To avoid this they could go to the bank and deposit their gold. This twist, as well as a variety in events, made this a very fun day for those who participated. This month was also order of the arrow and patrol leader elections. The order of the arrow is an honor camping society in the boy scouts. They go on separate campouts and events. To be elected a scout must have the rank of first class, 15 days of camping within the year and be approved by his scoutmasters. A unique thing about this election is that it is an organization where non members can vote. Those elected show scout spirit, are respected in their troop, and participate in cheerful service. However once they

are elected they must go on an ordeal to prove their loyalty to the organization. There were five patrol leaders elected this year. These scouts are responsible for their patrol. Being a patrol leader is a lot of work but those who do it are respected and feel satisfied. Especially after summer camp because of the extra work they must do. These scouts must do more work than the average scout to allow their patrols to run smoothly. Any scout who takes up a leadership position in his troop shows dedication. Remember a scout is always loyal. Tyler VanGorder has the rank of Life in Boy Scout and is a member of Troop 160 from Clarks Summit. He is a sophomore student at Abington Heights High School.

Who plays the voice of the Lorax in "Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax"?

Kudos to the students in the Dietrich’s After School Theatre Arts program. Their performance at the end of February was truly amazing. We would like to thank the program’s director Jennifer Jenkins, set design instructors Amy and Steve Colley and choreographer Judy Weist for their outstanding leadership. The Dietrich also recently hosted a Folk Music Benefit Concert. Lorne Clarke and the gang did a spectacular job. More than 125 folks came out for the afternoon of music and stories. We would like to thank all of the artists who donated their time and talent for the event . This Saturday, March 10 from 9 a.m. to noon, the Dietrich will be hosting a free movie “Under Our Skin” on the subject of Lyme disease. A Q&A will follow this show with Dr. Daniel Cameron, M.D. Dr. Cameron is considered to be a pioneer on Lyme disease as an author of practice guidelines, analytic reviews and clinical trials. He has testified as an expert on Lyme disease for legislation in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania for physicians’ rights to diagnose Lyme disease using clinical judgment without state interference. He is been interviewed as an expert on the subject on NBC’s “Today Show” and “Good Morning America.” He sees patients in his private practice in Mt. Kisco, N.Y. and maintains the website www.LymeProject.com. After we started promoting this movie event with the Endless Mountains Lyme Disease Support Group a few weeks ago. For more information or to reserve your free tickets to this event, please call the Dietrich at 996.1500. It will hopefully answer a lot of our questions about Lyme Disease diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention. At the end of March, the Dietrich will also be presenting a live theatre event “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Dale Wasserman based on the novel by Ken Kesey. The cast has been busy rehearsing for several weeks now and I can’t wait for them to take to the Dietrich stage for their five-day run from March 21 to 25. The cast is impressive and I know we will be in for a treat. Tickets are $10 each. For more information about show times or to reserve your tickets, please call us at 570.996.1500. As you can see the Dietrich is so much more than the movies!

Biblical storyteller to perform

LIBRARY NEWS

BY MARY ANN MCGRATH

Susan Cain’s hardcover best seller, “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking,” is now available at the Abington Community Library as an unabridged audio book production. Cain charts the rise of the extrovert ideal in the 20th century and explores its far-reaching effects. She draws on the latest research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts, introducing successful introverts who made many of the great contributions to society, from Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” to the invention of the personal computer. “How to Solar Power Your Home: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply,” by Martha Maeda, is a new addition on the non-fiction shelf at the library. For any homeowner who has ever considered solar power as a viable means to save money and the environment, this guide will help them get started right away. Learn how solar power works and what it requires, from cost and equipment to preparation and maintenance, and what an increasing number of people have experienced when they turned to solar power as a means of saving money and reducing their imprint on the environment. “The Royal Wulff Murders,” by Keith McCafferty, is a new mystery at the library this week. Sheriff Martha Ettinger suspects foul play in the drowning death of a young man on the Madison, a Montana trout river. She soon finds herself crossing paths with newcomer Sean Stranahan, fly fisher, painter, and has-been private detective, who has more luck catching fish than clients until he is hired to find the missing brother of Velvet Lafayette. As they each pursue their own line of questioning, both the sheriff and Stranahan uncover clues to Montana’s Big Business: fly-fishing.

This is a performance of stories that comprise most of Mark’s Gospel and takes about 90 minutes. It is a dramatic and fast-paced story of the life and ministry of Jesus. The performance will take place at 4 p.m. March 11, at First Presbyterian Church, 300 School Street, Clarks Summit. All are invited to attend.

seph Campbell Festival, the Greenbelt (UK) Festival and on a nation-

al television special sponsored by the National Bible Association. He has led seminars and workshops in churches and seminaries and universities all over the world, including Oxford, Yale, Duke, Princeton, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne. Although many people think storytelling is for children, Dewey said that most of his audiences are adults. “The stories that I perform are entertaining, moving and intellectually challenging. These are stories that changed history.” Dewey, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), is a graduate of Hartwick College, where he trained in drama, and of Princeton Theological Seminary. He has also done graduate study in education at the State University of New York. He makes his home in Utica, New York with his wife and family.

DISTRICT CHAMPIONS

Lady Comets prevail

O’Donnell, Toro lead Abington Heights

BY JOE BARESS Abington Journal Correspondent

Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr. High School senior wrestler Eric Laytos earned his third straight gold medal at the Class AA Northeast Regional Tournament while Abington Heights junior wrestler Michael Carr finished third in the Class AAA tournament March 3. Their efforts earned them berths in their respective state tournaments. “You’ve got to wrestle with heart and make everything on the mat happen,” Laytos said. “You’ve got to put everything else aside and just go after it.” Laytos pinned Nathan Stettler of North Penn in the championship semifinal round before pinning Eric McCracken of Central Columbia 49 seconds into the championship round to earn his third straight gold medal. “Eric is a kid that you can always count on to go out and give 150 percent ,” Lackawanna Trail Head Coach Jeff Stauffer said. “He’ll wrestle three periods and he’ll wrestle them as hard as he can until the third period is over.” Lackawanna Trail senior Ben Lehman lost in the consolation quarterfinal round in the 285-pound weight division. Marvess Rosiak and Caleb Darling also wrestled for Lackawanna Trail in the tournament. “At regionals, those two (Rosiak and Darling) wrestled the best I’d ever seen in the four years I’ve coached them,” Stauffer said. Darling lost a close bout in the 182-pound weight division in the consolation quarterfinal. Rosiak also went down in his final match of the tournament by one point in the consolation semifinal in the 170-pound weight division. “It was kind of sad seeing them not get a berth into the state tournament,” Stauffer said. “They had the capability. They just fell short in close matches and it was pretty heartbreaking.” Laytos won the Class AA State Championship during his sophomore season. Despite his past success, Laytos never looks past any opponent. “We take every match one at a time because every kid down at states is good enough to beat anybody,” Stauffer said. “It just depends on how up they are for the match and how well prepared they are. We just have to make sure we’re prepared and we’re ready to go too.” “I’m just doing the same things in practice,” Laytos added. “I’ve just got to get the right mindset now. That’s all there is to it.” In the Class AAA Northeast Regional Tournament, Carr lost to Jake Young of Freedom High School in the second round. Despite the loss, Carr fought back in the consolation bracket, winning four matches Saturday and earned a third place finish. “His concentration going into the second day was to open up his offense and to keep

The senior guard scored 13 of her game-high 17 points in the quarter to spark the Lady Comets to a 49-25 win over Wallenpaupack in the District 2 Class AAAA title game March 2 at the Lackawanna College Student Union. “I was really pumped up after I hit the first two 3s and then my shot was just coming natural, so I had to keep shooting,” O’Donnell said. “We’ve worked so hard for the past couple weeks and months and it’s all really paying off.” After forcing the Lady Buckhorns into eight first-quarter turnovers, Abington Heights led 13-9. Then, O’Donnell took control, knocking down three 3-pointers in a span of 3:20. “The girls ran her off some pretty good picks and she was hot,” Abington Heights head coach Vince Bucciarelli said. “She was in a zone at that time.” Despite having a 10- point halftime lead, Bucciarelli wasn’t ABINGTON JOURNAL/JASON RIEDMILLER entirely pleased with the team’s Abington Heights point guard Lauren Hoyt finished with four points, eight play. rebounds and eight assists in the Lady Comets win over Wallenpaupack “We weren’t as sharp in the March 2. first half,” he said. “I gave them a talk at halftime. They came out in

the second half and played well. Breanna Toro hit some buckets and Lauren Hoyt started penetrating and dishing off with her speed. That opened up a lot of things for us.” The Lady Comets responded to his message, holding Wallenpaupack to seven points in the second half and not allowing a field goal in the fourth quarter. “They came out and hustled,” Bucciarelli said. “I thought Melanie Coles did a great job helping down in the inside. It was a great win.” Toro, who finished with 16 points, scored the first four points of the third quarter to stretch the Lady Comets lead. “I knew to get to the open spot and my teammates gave me great passes,” she said. Hoyt was determined to lead her team to a third straight district championship. The senior guard contributed eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals. “It feels awesome, she said. “It’s my last year so I wanted to put everything out there. My shot was off, so I thought I could pick up my defense.” Abington Heights (22-4) will play Upper Darby High School in the first round of the PIAA Class AAAA playoffs March 9 at 6 p.m. at the Lackawanna College Student Union.

This technique, which is part of Macarra BJJ PA Self Defense Series presented by instructors James Simrell and David Walsh, is “Defense for Punches Thrown from the Mount Position.” Goal: When working with partner, work on the Fundamentals of the Technique. You want to learn the technique without using strength. Repetitions: 20 times each side.

Step 2: Defender should bring his right knee up and bump the attacker forward. Both of the attacker’s hands will now be planted on the ground. Leaving no space between them, the defender’s face should be laying flat against the attacker’s chest hugging him tightly.

Step 3: One hand at a time, the defender should grab each shoulder of the attacker and slide the right hand down the left arm. Then trap the arm at the bend, bring the right foot to the outside of the left lower leg trapping the leg. The left side of the attacker’s body is now trapped. He has now committed himself to being rolled.

Step 4: Defender should post with his head and move his hips upward and to the left side. The attacker is rolling with the defender, bringing him to his back. The attacker is now disengaged.

Clarks Summit police conduct commercial vehicle inspection The Clarks Summit police department, along with state Department of Revenue agents and Scranton police officer Anthony Gieda held a planned commercial vehicle inspection Feb. 23.

Barry Kaplan, president of the Abington Business Professional Association (ABPA), was in attendance to speak at the Abington Council of Governments last meeting held March 1. Kaplan, who also owns the store Everything Natural in Clarks Summit, described the association as, “ a very public -minded organization.” The Abington Business Professional Association organizes events such as the Clarks Summit Festival of Ice and the scarecrow contest held in the fall in Clarks Summit, as well as sidewalk sales and seminars for small business owners. “The way I think of it, we make the Abingtons a more livable community. It makes an area where residents of all the communities have business and services without going to say, Scranton. They’re dealing with people they know and keeping the money in Northeastern Pennsylvania,” said Kaplan. He explained that while the association deals mostly with Clarks Summit due to its walkable business district, they would be interested in interacting with more of the Abington communities. Also discussed at the meeting was the topic of police department consolidation. Herman Johnson of Clarks Summit said a meeting is in the works with a local policy specialist to better educate communities on the issue and advise them if consolidation with another police department could benefit them. The date and time for the meeting has not been set as Johnson is still contacting communities to see how many would be interested in attending.

with the proposed vacation of Baker Lane. At the last board of supervisors meeting, discussion occurred regarding resident James Connolly’s request that the township vacate a portion of Baker Lane attached to his driveway. It was decided that the best course of action was to have Connolly use a petition that would be drawn up by the supervisors. A petition was put together and shown to the board at the meeting. After final approval, the Connolly family would sign the petition, and anyone affected by the proposed vacation would be notified. Finally, the supervisors unanimously decided to reappoint Sean Connolly and Donald Jensen to the township planning commission.

She missed her children and was completely “burned out” from all of the traveling. “The Abington community has a very diverse and unique variety of businesses. I feel very fortunate to be part of this special group of entrepreneurs,” Keen said. Upon resigning from her previous position, she explained to her boss why she was leaving. He responded “You will never make it.” When she first started to process the opening of her own agency, she had worries. At that time, she expressed her concerns and fearsto her father, Dr. Alexander Karpowicz, He made it crystal clear to her that if she wasn’t ready after 25 years, she never would be ready. Her father’s advice: “Failure is not an option.” Keen said she sees great things in the future for her agency. “We’ve been working and booking talent predominantly on the East Coast and now we have clients who are asking if we have talent in Chicago, Vegas, etc. We are expanding and hopefully will be national in the next two years.” In October 2011 Keen took a risk by investing a sizable sum to sponsor New Jersey Fashion and Beauty Week. As a sponsor she had VIP access to celebrities, designers, media outlets to make connections for her agency and talent . “It was long, exciting and glamorous twoday event filled with contacts, and I had one shot to make it right. I think I passed out about 300 business cards… . I met the cast of “Jerseylicious,” “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and received press for our agency .” Keen said this type of involvement in such events brings every person she represents to the next level. Just last week, they were invited to New York Fashion Week. One of their models and representatives, Kayla Hutzky, was asked to walk for Stevie Boi, eyewear designer for Lady Gaga. “Our

I am also inspired by my grandmother, Alfreda Karpowicz who has been a solid and stable rock in my life. She is stylish, wise, intelligent, beautiful, loving giving and the personification of ‘class”. Favorite place in the world: With my children. Favorite book: “The Giving Tree.” My greatest achievement: Being brave. Taking enormous risks and starting my own business.

She worked as a secretary for a company and in the 23 years she worked there, grew into president and partner. “I take care of the good and not-so-good. Most importantly, my job is to make sure that our entire “team” at The Keen Agency, Inc., is focused on our talent and finding them work in all types of avenues of the industry and also guarding our reputation and that of our talent,” said Keen.
