FNCB accused of dubious loans

Police fitness discussed

CLARKS SUMMIT - At the Clarks Summit Borough work session March 27, Councilman Herman Johnson proposed an idea to start a physical fitness program for borough police officers, firefighters and other personnel. He believes such a program would in the long run save the borough money by helping employees stay healthy and learn to keep themselves safe. Johnson introduced John Smith, president, owner and operator of Serenity Martial Arts. Smith said bringing in a physical fitness program would be “a wise investment to cut down on costs, not only for sickness and injury, but liability.” For example, he said the program will teach various effective but non-harmful techniques that police officers can use to restrain a person without causing them lasting injury. Also in attendance was Attorney Mike Grab, representing Tower Co, regarding the land development plan for a cell phone tower to be located on private property on North State Street. The plan gained approval at the March 7 meeting, but Grab said upon review of the written conditions, two were “slightly problematic in terms of the wording.” The first was condition 15,

t 11 a.m. April 1, a group of children arrived at the Jewish Discovery Center in Clarks Summit ready to make and bake Matzah, unleavened bread eaten by people of the Jewish faith during Passover. “We are going to make Matzah…” Rabbi Benny Rapoport, center director, told the children and they in turn vocalized their enthusiasm by loudly chanting, “Matzah, Matzah, Matzah…lots of Matzah, Matzah.” All eyes and ears were on Rabbi Rapoport, as he explained

Easter brings a variety of Christian services and events to local places of worship seeking to remember death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. One such event, held by Countryside Community Church, demonstrates literally Jesus’ command in the Gospels to believers to “take up your cross and follow me.” According to Pastor JeanPierre Duncan, the congregation will assemble at the current church building on Church Hill Road for a “Cross Walk.” From there, members will take turns with about eight people at a time carrying the wooden cross to the Church’s new site about a mile away on Orchard Drive. Duncan said this is the church members’ chance to “visibly demonstrate to the community what they are about in Jesus Christ.” “We are extremely excited,” he said, “because of all the hope we have because of what we’ve been doing here as a new church.” The church’s Easter events will begin on Holy Thursday with a service, including

the significance of the Matzah. He told them, “When the Jewish people left Egypt, they went so fast they had no time to bake bread and instead of bread they had Matzah (unleavened bread). On Passover, we think about ego and we’re going to become very,

Holy Communion, a foot washing and a choir performance of “When You Prayed Beneath the Trees,” a song which Duncan said follows the same theme as his sermon, focusing on Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. Instead of a benediction that night, Duncan said the church’s worship time will not stop, but come to a recess. It will resume the next day for the Cross Walk, and after that, recess again until Sunday morning, when they plan to hold an outdoor sunrise service at the new church building at 7:30 a.m. The regular Easter morning service will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the current building.

“The Way You Look Tonight” is the theme of this year’s upcoming “Men in Black III” fundraiser to be held April 11 at the Country Club of Scranton. The décor will reflect “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra, and his signature style of black and white with a touch of red. According to event co-chair, Diane Calabro, “He (Sinatra) always wore a touch of red in either the lining of his suit jacket or a scarf in his pocket. The décor will be Frank Sinatra’s trademark.” The event, which will begin with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:30, is sponsored by the Abington Business and Profes-

sional Association, with musical entertainment provided by The Poets. Carrie Farrell is co-chair for the event that will feature 20 prominent local heartthrobs sporting tuxedos donated by Sarno & Sons. While many organizations have fashion shows featuring women’s clothing, Men in Black is a twist on the traditional . Among the lineup of models to take the runway at the country club are Men in Black newcomers: Mark Lynn, Greg Wall, Ryan See Style, Page 3

SCRANTON – Blinded by the desire to help their friends attain wealth, board members of First National Community Bancorp granted millions of dollars in questionable loans to fellow bank directors and other insiders who later defaulted, said two attorneys who filed a lawsuit on behalf of shareholders March 28. The unsound lending practices, which included loans to former Luzerne County Judge Michael Conahan, helped fuel significant losses at the bank and cost shareholders more than $50 million, said attorneys Joseph Solfanelli and Todd O’Malley of the O’Malley and Langan law firm. The lawsuit seeks to force the bank to turn over all records related to loans made to board members and persons or businesses related to them, known as “insider” loans by federal regulators. The suit, filed on behalf of shareholder Lori Gray of Pottstown, seeks to recover losses the attorneys contend were the result of “egregious” conduct by board members, whom they allege breached their fiduciary duty to protect the interests of shareholders by making unsound loans that led the bank to lose $44.3 million in 2009. The bank’s stock fell from $18.95 in December 2007 to just $3.85 per share as of Monday. Some of those losses are attributed to a large volume of insider loans made to directors and/or their family members, Solfanelli said. “The most plausible explanation is, in their desire to help friends, their vision became blurred and they approved loans they otherwise would not have approved,” Solfanelli said. The bad loans include $4.5 million in debt guaranteed by Conahan, who served on the bank board until he was indicted on corruption charges in 2009, and real estate developer Michael G. Cestone, who also served on FNCB’s board until 2009. That money was used by W-Cat, a corporation owned by Conahan, former Judge Mark Ciavarella, attorney Robert Powell and others, to fund the failed Sanctuary townhouse project in Wright Township. Cestone’s construction company was the builder for the project. Steve Tokach, president and CEO of FNCB, did not return a phone message March 29 seeking comment on the lawsuit. In a letter to Solfanelli, attorneys for the bank said a committee has been formed to investigate questions raised by the attorneys. That committee has not yet completed its report. The suit, filed in Lackawanna County Court, is based partly on the annual report FNCB, which is publicly traded, filed See FNCB, Page 3

Glen Oak shares recipes for holiday season Matzo Ball Soup

BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Recipe provided by Patrick Williamson

Whether observing Passover or Easter, a suggestion from Patrick Williamson, Glen Oak Country Club executive chef, is to take advantage of seasonal produce when planning a menu for the upcoming holidays. Passover begins in the evening April 6, and ends April14, and Easter is observed April 8. At Glen Oak Country Club, Clarks Summit, 250 Oakford Road, Clarks Summit, the traditional foods served at both Easter and Passover are available at the club for both holidays. Passover meal will include Matzo Ball Soup and Brisket of Beef, and on their Easter buffet table, diners will find omelet stations, leg of lamb, ham and carved roast beef. According to Williamson, seasonal fresh asparagus is a great accompaniment for lamb and he also suggested serving roasted sweet potato. Jeff Spagna, CCM, Glen Oak Country Club manager said,

3 eggs 6 to 9 cups chicken stock ¼ cup minced or grated onion ¼ cup melted rendered chicken fat or canola/extra-virgin olive oil ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 cup matzo meal 4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley Mix eggs and ½ cup stock. Add onion, oil or rendered fat, parsley, salt, pepper and mix well. Add matzo meal and mixture should be wet. In a bowl, cover and refrigerate for one hour or overnight. Form matzo into 1inch balls and place into simmering salted water. Use chicken stock to cook the matzo balls, but be sure to double the quantity of stock. Cook the balls for 30 minutes. Place carrots into stock and simmer until tender. Add matzo balls and serve.

“During Passover, we totally recognize the holiday and we prepare the traditional foods that are enjoyed during the Passover season, and a lot of our members will come to the club to order and some will order it to have at their homes. We also observe Easter and offer a dinner buffet on Easter Sunday.” Chef Williamson, who grew up in a restaurant family in the Philadelphia area, said of his recipe for Matzo Ball Soup, “A member came to me and asked if I would make that recipe for him.

Children searching around the slide for eggs in Kathy Platt’s backyard.

Circle of FUN BY BEN FREDA Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT - Egg hunting and egg coloring were part of the fun March 23 during the 2nd annual Easter egg hunt, which was held at Chatham Hill Circle, a street in a new South Abington neighborhood. Chatham Hill Circle resident Kathy Platt hosted this gathering for the neighbors to come together for fun and fellowship. Neighborhood children dye Easter eggs. “It’s a great opportunity for the neighborhood to hang out and for the kids to play,” said Platt’s neighbor Kristy Voytek. Children four and under hunted for eggs with their parents on the Voytek yard, and children five and older searched on the Platt yard. One thousand eggs were hidden in all. “We love it because it’s a good way to gather the parents and children together with no stress, just plain fun,” said Platt. “All these gatherings make a cohesive neighborEmelia Williams, 3, From left: Triplets Brock, Hunter and hood.

regarding the posting of a $50,000 removal bond to insure the tower will be taken down when it is no longer in use. Grab said the company had agreed to the posting of a bond, but had not agreed upon or been given an amount until receiving the written conditions. Grab suggested $35,000 as a compromise. Borough Manager Virginia Kehoe said the Council will vote on it at the next meeting. The second problem involved potential wetlands on the property. Grab proposed the condition be revised to require that the company meets with the borough engineer, and if possible, a DEP representative at the property prior to submitting a GP7 application, to discuss the scope of that application. Another item on the meeting agenda was The Gathering Place, a proposed project to convert the first floor of the Borough Building into a community art and education center. Dori Waters presented an update on the project to the Council. Waters said the borough will not be responsible for funding the project. There are no official estimates yet regarding costs, but she said she’s looking at raising $200,000 to $300,000 in funds to put into the building. The next item on the agenda was Countryside Conservancy, a local non-profit land trust. Cheryl Ellsworth was in attendance to give a presentation regarding the Trolley Trail Project, of which she is coordinator. The project is a walking and biking trail to run through the Abingtons from Dalton to Clarks Summit. Ellsworth said the project has been ongoing for 10 years, and last year the conservancy obtained a $500,000grant for the project, and is looking at a three-year window of completion. She proposed the idea of bringing the trail into Clarks Summit, and adding a sign to the area of the new Veterans Monument on North State Street. Other items briefly discussed at the work session meeting included Building One PA, the possible removal of a “Street Closed” sign at Grandview Street, an employment opening for a borough secretary, progress regarding the recycling grant, the possible police consolidation, the Emergency Management book, the need for new police cars, and the question of whether or not to widen the sidewalks on Depot Street.

Students stand up for pups BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

A group of South Abington Elementary School third graders, who call themselves “Paws for Peace,” are advocating for the elimination of puppy mills, while trying to support the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. They approached Principal Robert Bugno in November for permission to take on the project. According to Bugno, the students have been very dedicated to the cause. Cole Chichura wrote a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama detailing the project and according to Bugno, the President sent back an acknowledgement which noted that these are the kinds of things the country needs to do. The group planned to make posters and design a website “They want to raise money to support the animal shelter,” Bugno said. “They still have a high level of enthusiasm and are working hard to raise

In the next few weeks, they will be writing a letter to Ellen Miles, the author of the book (“Chewy & Chica”) that inspired their project. The group planned to perform a skit during PTA Reflection in an effort to increase awareness to their cause and potentially inspire other children to work on the project.

or her senior project at Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr. High School, senior Cecilia Strauch organized a concert, “A Celebration of Music!” featuring an original concert band composition, “Adventure Suite,” which she created. The concert, to be held April 14 at 7 p.m. at the school, will also feature Jesse Morvan’s Jazz Band and a number of solo performances by other Lackawanna Trail students. All the donations collected at the door will be contributed to the Lackawanna Trail Friends of Music General Fund for the music department. Strauch said the idea for the concert was forming in her mind for a while, but it was a graded composition writing assignment given last year by Band Director Kevin Dikeman, that spurred the idea on. “That really gave me the motivation and encouragement to turn my idea into an action,” Strauch said via e-mail. The process of composing the music for the concert was slow but steady, and according to Strauch’s log, after eight hours here, three hours there and another six hours

She said she started by coming up with a general outline of how each song would go, compiling enough phrases that were different from each other but still flowed to bring together the idea of the song. “A lot of the phrases that I used,” she said, “sort of…popped into my head…Other times I would be playing around on the piano and come up with something…There were even times when I’d be writing the piece only to find myself improvising.” Once the concert was finished, it was about 20 minutes long, which she felt wasn’t long enough to make an entire concert. So, she talked to Dikeman about adding another performance, and he suggested Jesse Morvan’s Jazz Band. The band, which is made up of five current and past Lackawanna Trail students, agreed, and Morvan said they will be filling a 20-minute slot with popular jazz songs. Morvan said he hopes a lot of people will attend the concert, but not only to hear the music. With budget cuts and a lack of funding in schools these days, he said music programs are often the first to go, and he hopes people will come to

donate to and support the music department. He said Strauch did a good job composing the music. Referring to the theme of her composition, he said the songs do “a good job at depicting an adventure.” Dikeman said he’s had the opportunity to attend some of the rehearsals, and what he’s heard so far of the wind ensemble of about 25 students, is really good. According to Dikeman, the school doesn’t have a very large music program, but it does have a strong one, and each member of the band is important. He described Strauch as “very motivated,” using the example of how she taught herself to play the bassoon. Strauch said what she likes most about the school’s music department is “the dedication that our directors have for encouraging us to make our performances sound the best they can.” Besides the bassoon, Strauch plays the clarinet, bass clarinet, piano, xylophone and violin, and her See Music, Page 9

Even though flowers and trees have been blooming for quite some time now due to the mild winter, it is hard for me to believe that we are already into April. The Dietrich’s Spring Film Festival is less than two weeks away and excitement is building. I know some of our patrons are already mapping out their schedules to fit in all of the movies they want to see. I am still in awe of the folks who manage to see all of the festival films. I especially can’t wait for the opening night gala. It is so festive! We will be celebrating with wine by Nimble Hill Vineyard and Winery, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres by Epicurean Delight, Twigs Restaurant and Seasons Restaurant. There will also be spectacular desserts by Epicurean Delight including mini raspberry romanoffs, chocolate and mint mousse, fresh fruit tarts, tiny tiramisus and lemon curd pound cakes. Now let’s talk movies for opening night. We will be featuring “The Women on the Sixth Floor” and “The Kid With a Bike.” Dr Philip Mosley from Penn State Hazleton will be on hand to introduce the films, and by coincidence he will have a book published later this year about the directors of “The Kid With a Bike” entitled “The Cinema of JeanPierre and Luc Dardenne: Responsible Realism.” It will be very interesting to get his take on the Dardenne brothers’ film. Tickets for opening night are $35 each and can be reserved by calling the Dietrich at 996.1500. For more information about the film festival movies and show times, visit our website at www.dietrichtheater.com or call us 996.1500 to request a festival brochure. Another big event this spring will be the Dietrich’s Philadelphia Art & History Bus Trip Thursday, May 3. You are invited to join us on a day trip to Philadelphia to experience great art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, a walking tour of Historic Philadelphia and dinner at the eighteenth century City Tavern. You will have an audio tour of the traveling exhibit “Van Gogh Up Close” and have time to explore the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The tour bus will then take you to Historic Philadelphia where you will take a 1.25 mile walk through history with the self-directed Constitutional Walking Tour.

LIBRARY NEWS

BY MARY ANN MCGRATH

The Abington Community Library will be closed Sunday, April 8, in observance of Easter. Regular library hours will be in effect Friday, April 6 (9 a.m. - 9 p.m.) and Saturday, April 7 (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) Registration is open for a special program for children during the Week of the Young Child (April 22 – 28) to promote the featured book of Pennsylvania’s 2012 Early Childhood Reading Initiative, “One Book, Every Young Child.” Zachariah Ohora, the author/illustrator of the book, “Stop Snoring, Bernard!,” will be a guest at the library Thursday, April 26 to read his story about a young otter who lives at a zoo and do otter crafts with the children. All pre-school children are invited to attend; pre-registration is requested by calling the library at 587-3440 or stopping in the Children’s Room. New Fiction for Adults “The Good Father,” by Noah Hawley. Dr. Paul Allen’s son, Daniel, is accused of shooting the Democratic candidate for president as he addresses a rally. Allen immediately sets out to find the truth, applying his finely honed diagnostic skills to the mystery of his own son, who is something of a drifter and a loner, aimlessly journeying across the United States under an assumed name. “A Partial History of Lost Causes,” by Jennifer Dubois. A long-lost letter links the two main characters, each of whom is searching for meaning against seemingly insurmountable odds. When Irina Ellison finds an old photocopy of a letter her late father had written years before to the Russian chess prodigy, Aleksandr Bezetov, she makes a fateful decision. Leaving her career as an English lecturer behind, she travels to Russia to find Bezetov, now a politician involved in a campaign against Vladimir Putin, seeking an answer to the query in her father’s letter. “The Silent Girl,” by Tess Gerritsen. Boston homicide cop Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles must make sense of the murder of a red-haired woman dressed all in black whose body is found in Boston’s Chinatown. They discover that this violent death had a chilling prequel 19 years earlier when a murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead and a mysterious female martial arts master still alive. “Angelmaker,” by Nick Harkaway. The forces of good square off against the forces of evil in this comic novel in which Joe Spork, an unassuming clockwork repairman and an octogenarian former superspy, Edie Banister, can save the world from total destruction. Having triggered a 1950s doomsday machine that belongs to Edie, Joe now faces the wrath of both the British government and a diabolical South Asian dictator. The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit. Visit our website, www.lclshome.org/abington to register online for events or call the library at 570.587.3440.

Welcome to April, a month chock full of library events. You’ll really need your calendar and pen ready to make note of these exciting events. Monday, April 9 is the first date of note. At 7 p.m. at the Scranton Cultural Center, Laura Lippman will be the featured speaker for the first of the 2012 Lackawanna County Library Lecture Series. Ms. Lippman, the New York Times best selling author of the Tess Monaghan crime novels, is the recipient of numerous awards for her writing. Her first novel in the Tess Monaghan series, “Baltimore Blues,” is also the “On the Same Page” selection for the Lackawanna County Book Club. A bit of trivia re Ms. Lippman - she’s a former reporter for the Baltimore Sun as is her dad, the notable writer, Theo Lippman. And her sleuth, Tess is a former newspaper reporter turned private eye. Admission is free with a library card or you can pick up a ticket at any of the Lackawanna County libraries. Next jump ahead to Saturday, April 21, when our library will be holding its spring Book and Bake sale. Both books and lots of homebaked goodies will be available from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and all funds raised support our library. The selection of books is most varied and the price for each hardcover is just $1; paperbacks sell for $.50. Our Dalton bakers usually provide Welsh cookies, breads, cookies, cakes, pies and other seasonal treats. Come early to get the best selection of all items. (Members of the Friends of the Dalton Community Library have an added bonus- an early chance to select books on Friday afternoon from 3-5 p.m.) Then on April 28, our Saturday Spotlight book club will be discussing Laura Lippman’s “Baltimore Blues,” the first novel in her Tess Monaghan series. Monaghan, an unemployed Baltimore journalist, is hired by her rowing friend, Rock Paxton, to shadow his fiancee. Monaghan discovers that the fiancee is involved with a notorious Baltimore attorney and when the attorney is strangled to death, Rock, of course, becomes the chief suspect. Tess’ challenge, to find the guilty party, involves escapades that might lead to her being another one of the many murder victims in the crime ridden city of Baltimore. Jean Marie Lynn of the Taylor Community Library will be our guest facilitator and those who attend are in for a great discussion. At last check, there were still copies of the book available at the circulation desk at the Dalton Community Library and there’s a real plus: the books are free (thanks to the Lackawanna County Library System’s “On the Same Page” program). And on April 30 at 6 p.m., local young children are in for a very special program. Amos McGee is coming to read “Stop Snoring Bernard,” (the book selection for the PA One Book for Every Child program) and “A Sick Day for Amos McGee.” (Both books are award- winning selections; the story about Amos won the 2011 Caldecott Medal and Bernard’s story won the 2011 Society of Illustrator’s Founders Award.) “Stop Snoring Bernard” is about an otter who snores, not just quiet little snores, but extremely loud snores that annoy the other animals in the zoo. What will Bernard do? Come and find out. Once the challenge for Bernard is resolved, the children can also hear Amos McGee, the zookeeper, read his own story about the day he got the sniffles and couldn’t care for the animals in the zoo. What will the animals do without their beloved zookeeper? Amos will tell you exactly what these clever animals did to make him feel better. In case you lose your copy of this article or can’t find your calendar, the brand new addition to our library will keep you up to date. Yes, our electronic bulletin board is up and running. It’s behind the circulation desk and features all the current library events and activities. Check it out. Don’t forget all the other programs at our library. All the adult programs continue: Mah Jong on Monday mornings at 10:15, bridge on Tuesday mornings at 10:15, Conscious Conversations on Tuesdays at 5 p.m., and the book club, Saturday Spotlight on Sat., April 28 at 10:30 a.m. If you are interested in continuing to play Euchre, please contact Janet Geeza ( 5632014) for further details. And parents, make sure you bring your little ones to the weekly story hour on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. Whenever I see the tots emerging from their story hour with Janet Geeza, they are so excited and chatting away about the stories they’ve heard. Kreative Kids for 4-6 graders continues to meet on Mondays from 4-5 p.m. Oh, the things they create in just one hours each week; they are one talented group of elementary school students! Don’t forget our Book and Bake Sale- Saturday, April 21at 9 a.m. It’s a great opportunity to find the perfect book for yourself, your child, or a friend who loves books. And why not pick out a goodie from our baked goods table. Then you’ll be all set to nibble on something delicious as you relax in your favorite spot and read your new book.

Organic eating Healthy choices second nature to Be Life owner. BY SUE REBENSKY Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT- Those driving down Northern Boulevard in South Abington Township might notice something different: Be Life Cafe and Marketplace. The business, focused on healthy eating and healthy choices is owned and operated by chef Rebekah Gillette, assisted in her business by holistic health coach Gail Weinberger. Be Life was the inspiration of a snack that Gillette put together for her daughter Bella. “I graduated from culinary school and went to work as a chef for awhile. I then wanted to create something healthy for my daughter instead of all the processed snacks, so I came up with a healthy snack on the go for her. I used berries in their raw form, along with nuts and coconuts and right there “Be Life” was born,” said Gillette. “I knew that I wanted to get the snacks out to others who were searching for the same thing I was and fate stepped in. This restaurant spot opened up and Be Life became a true reality.” She said that her business is unique to the area, “ We focus our meals on the organic factors and the health needs of our customers.

Spangenberg will start season in California BY TOM ROBINSON Abington Journal Correspondent

Cory Spangenberg is working his way up through the San Diego Padres farm system. The 21-year-old Abington Heights High School graduate is set to open the season with the Lake Elsinore Storm of the California League. Lake Elsinore is the highest level of three Class A teams in the Padres system. Spangenberg, listed as the top second base prospect in all of the minor leagues by mlb.com, needed just 25 games at Eugene of the halfseason Northwest League. After being picked 10th overall by the Padres in last June’s Major League Baseball Draft, Spangenberg hit .384 at Eugene to earn a promotion to the Fort Wayne Tin Caps of the Midwest League. Spangenberg struggled early at Fort Wayne, then finished strong, helping the Tin Cups to the playoffs. Overall, Spangenberg hit .316 with three homers, 44 RBI and 25 stolen bases in his first professional season. Spangenberg spent part of spring training with the parent Padres.

Teams led by seniors BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

The boys’ volleyball season is underway and both Abington Heights and Lackawanna Trail high schools are poised to have successful seasons. Abington Heights Abington Heights move from the Wyoming Valley Conference to the Lackawanna League in boys volleyball makes it by far the league’s largest school.The Comets were 13-3 and tied for third in the 17-team league last season. Mike Labagh is in his first season as coach of the Abington Heights boys, but he is able to share some experiences with his players. “I definitely think they need to get used to playing different teams,” Labagh said. “I think there is more competition in the WVC than in the (Lackawanna League).” Labagh was also the coach last fall when the Abington Heights girls made the same transition. The Lady Comets went 9-7 in the WVC in 2010 then moved to face smaller schools in the Lackawanna League, only to have their record slip to 7-6. “They might have been caught a little by surprise,” he said of the girls’ team. “They might have gotten caught being a little too comfortable. “I don’t think the boys will be taking the season as lightly as the girls did at first.” The Comets return many experienced players, including starters Mike Pacyna, James Connolly, Jake Roba, Mike Pettinato, and Kevin Schumacher. Pacyna, a senior, and Roba, a junior, are middle hitters. Connolly is an outside hitter. Pettinato will be a setter and Schumacher the libero although each has experience at the other’s position. Other members of the Comets’ team include seniors Brain Vietz, Charlie Ulmer, and John Loboda along with juniors Eric Washo and Sean Albright. The Comets had a 2-0 record at time of publication. Lackawanna Trail The Lions finished 11-2 last season. They must replace libero David Boslough, right -side hitter Mike

the team can build off last season’s success. “We would like to contend for the league title and advance further in playoffs than we did last season,” Joyce said. Joyce expects Abington Heights, Blue Ridge and Western Wayne to provide the toughest competition in the division. The Lions had a 2-0 record at the time of publication.

ARCHBALD - Malik Draper led all players in scoring and shared the Red team lead in rebounds and steals during the March 27 Lackawanna League Boys’ Basketball All-Star Game at Valley View High School. As a result, Draper earned Most Valuable Player honors for the Red, which he led to a 100-72 victory over the Blue. Draper finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and four steals and combined with Scranton teammate Terry Turner to help the Red take charge following a fast start by the Blue. Turner had 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals. Montrose’s Tom Lewis had 12 points, nine rebounds and four steals while Lakeland’s Alex Filarsky added 11 points in the win. Honesdale’s Jordan Meyer put on a dunking show in the fourth quarter and finished with 18 points and four assists to earn Blue MVP honors. Stephen Miller, Lackawanna Trail’s 7-foot center, had 17 points and game-high totals of 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. Miller helped the Red take an 18-9 lead in the first 4:15 when he hit his first three shots. He scored seven points and blocked three shots. A 3-pointer by Dunmore’s Jordan Dempsey helped the Red close the half on a 6-2 run to a 49-43 lead. Draper scored four points when the Red added the first six of the second half for a 55-43 lead. He joined Turner and Riverside’s Jerry Kincel in scoring six points each to key a 28-12, third-quarter advantage that broke the game open, 77-55. The fourth quarter turned into showtime with four dunks by Meyer -- two windmill deliveries from the baseline, one on an alley-oop from Blue Ridge’s Alex Cardoza and one when the Red defense gave him enough room to throw the ball off the backboard to himself. Miller and Draper also dunked late in the game with Draper’s giving the Red the 100-point mark with 40 seconds left. Scranton’s Tony Battaglia coached the Red and Lackawanna Trail’s Andrew Kettel coached the Blue. Delaware Valley’s Brandon Angradi won the 3-Point Shooting Contest, beating Dunmore’s Dempsey in the final.
