Don Demarest, club president for the Trail Rotary Factoryville sums his feelings about his involvement with Rotary International as a whole: “When you wake up and smell the coffee, then pour yourself a bowl of Wheaties , put your glasses on and shake the cobwebs loose, you pick up the paper and realize everyday what nonprofit organizations accomplish in NEPA for the good of our Don Demarest citizens and children. Now magnify this by the thousands across this country.” He sees the big picture. “Rotary is not just a club, it’s an education.” Demarest has witnessed firsthand what the organization has done locally as well as throughout the world. And he wants to spread to the world that people are needed in all walks of life to help the endeavors club members face. The Factoryville resident has been busy with Rotary for three years, club president for 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, and has experienced first hand what the organization does locally, as well as

Now here in my own community of northeast Pennsylvania another one of my sons, Tyler Winstead, was murdered and he was only 14 years old. Neither came from my physical womb but they came from the wombs of a mother just like me; and as mothers we have to realize that these are the sons of our collective womb. Trayvon and Tyler came from mothers who feared that tragic day, every day since the moment they had to release their sons to a world that feared and envied them. They came from mothers whose ethereal umbilical cord is never severed; an invisible connection one thousand times more sensitive than the physical one and when cut before its time On April 12, 2012, the Greater Scranton Jaycees will host a “Magic Maker” Happy Hour is one thousand times more from 5 - 7 p.m. to benefit the local Make-A-Wish® chapter at Kildare’s, 119 Jefferson Avenue painful.

schools, our own neighborhoods, our own homes? . It’s time to do things differently. It’s time for women to take the lead. While the world is debating about who did it and why it was done, it’s time for mothers to establish a new paradigm for change. It’s time for us to let go of everything that has not worked and begin with a plan that will work. It’s time for us to realize that what’s happening to our children is not because of white people; it’s not because of injustice in our legal system; and it not happening because we are black. It is happening because we refuse to accept our constitutional responsibility of being parents, citizens, families, neighbors, community! It’s time for us to take responsibility; check, and protect our children. Teach them citizenship, civility, and their constitutional rights as American Citizens; including their right to bear arms to protect their Godinherent right to life. It’s time for us to stop giving our money to talking heads and pool our capital for the representation and resources that we select as useful and needed. It’s time for us to position ourselves in our communities to participate in the planning of school programs, city ordinances, and neighborhood watches, etc.; so that we can impart our input on the city governments that don’t know what to do with us. If we do nothing for ourselves; how then can we expect others to? It’s time for us to take continuous, persistent action now; because it’s too late to wait until another son dies. I, Diane V. Boone, single mother of five, am ready to take that action and I call to all mothers of African American children to come together and declare this coming Mother’s Day a Day of Action; a day we stand up and begin to take charge of protecting our children by every means necessary.

C.S. Borough thanks treasurer for service BY ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER


Linda Young is the 2012 Jennie Award winner from the Middle Atlantic Region.

‘What a feeling’ BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

The General Federation of Women’s Clubsprovides awards for states and clubs, but the Jennie Award is the only national award that “singles out and honors individual members for personal excellence,” according to Carlene A. Garner, the federation’s international president. Waverly resident Linda Young received a letter dated March 20, from Garner, notifying her that she is the 2012 Jennie Award winner from the Middle Atlantic Region. In 2011, Young began her journey to this award locally with a nomination by her fellow members in the Abington Heights Civic League. Recipients are nominated based upon commitment to club, community and family. The state winner is selected by an outside panel of judges comprised of leading citizens. In June 2011, Young won the state award and will be honored, along with other nominees, in Lancaster in May. The four Middle Atlantic Region state winners from N.Y., N.J., Del. and Pa., were honored at a conference in September 2011; judges narrowed honorees to two then selected one of the two winners from each of the eight international regions of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Young was selected as the winner from the Middle Atlantic Region. Young said, “I think that is the most amazing thing. I wouldn’t have won this (award) without this club. This club is the most active, caring and concerned group of women that I could imagine. Collectively, we are involved in so many things,” said Young. “I’ve never been honored for anything like this in my life and what a feeling.” Since 1975, Young has been a member of the Abington Heights Civic League, a nonprofit community -oriented organization. In 2011 she was presented with the league’s Dedicated Club Woman Award for her contributions to the club. The Abington Heights Civic League Clubhouse and Dance Academy are located in the Colburn Complex, 115 Colburn Ave., Clarks Summit. The league includes 76 members. “The Abington Heights Civic League, Inc. supports our community through service, volunteerism and fundraising, and Linda has demonstrated her dedication to the club’s mission by serving in many capacities, including holding the offices of President twice and Treasurer, and by spearheading many important club projects throughout her years as a member. This past year alone, in addition to her position as General Federation of Women’s Clubs Pa. State Secretary, she has served as Chairman of the …AHCL, Inc., Civic League’s Home Life department, overseeing the annual Kindergarten Vision Screening program, and the Adopt a Family Holiday Project. She helps to keep our club ‘on-track’ by serving on important bylaws, audit and strategic planning committees,” said league Past President and Leadership Chairman Colleen Gilboy. She added, “Linda is extremely civicminded and in addition to her many club activities she serves other local organizations in various capacities. The “Forever Young Fishing Derby” is just one more example of her vision and ability to network with these organizations to generate interest and support for a project that is beneficial to the entire community.” Young established the annual fishing derby in memory of her late husband, Lawrence E. “Bud” Young, and the project is supported by the Abington Heights Civic League’s Conservation Community Service Program. Young has two daughters, Tammi and Dawn. Sherry Wellman, GFWC Jennie Award Chairman, said of the award, “The Jennie Award is the highest individual award bestowed by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs . As the Jennie Award winner from the GFWC Mid-Atlantic Region, Linda will be honored June 16 at the Transforming our World Gala during the GFWC International Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Linda Young demonstrates the spirit of devotion to community, family and club epitomized by GFWC founder Jane Cunningham Crowley, who wrote under the pen name ‘Jennie June.’”


Katie DeRiancho, 3, of Waverly, goes after a prized egg.

Keen eye for EGGS Jake Gilbert, 10, Waverly, shares an Easter egg with Brooklyn Yankow, 1, Clarks Summit.

On April 7, an Easter egg hunt was hosted at Waverly Community Church, from 10 -11 a.m. The event included a puppet show and crafts for children 10 and younger.

CLARKS SUMMIT - At the Clarks Summit Borough Council Meeting April 4, council voted to accept the resignation of Borough Treasurer Christine Tsaklas. They then made a resolution in her honor, which was read by Mayor Harry Kelly, recognizing and thanking her for her service. Attorney Mike Grab was in attendance representing TowerCo 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, and at the March 27 work session Grab came to the council with two problems regarding the written conditions. Suggestions resolving those problems were made at the work session, and at the April 4 meeting, council voted to approve those amendments to the conditions. Also in attendance was Gerard Hetman, representing the newly formed Lackawanna County Community Relations department. Hetman said the County is starting a new venture, similar to the Abington Council of Governments, which will feature a series of informal meetings between the commissioners and local elected officials. Residents of Grandview Street were in attendance to request the removal of the “Road Closed” sign at the beginning of the Street. They

also requested more rocks be placed at a walkway opening to prevent motorcycles from driving through. Council decided to place it on the agenda for the next work session. Also in attendance was Warren Watkins, representing the Abington Senior Center, which he said has been growing in “leaps and bounds.” He said since last year at this time, membership has increased by 141 people. Parking is now a problem—a good problem, he said, but a problem nonetheless. Another topic of discussion was the graffiti on a building at the Abington Little League ball field. Council discussed methods of preventing future vandalism and requested the police force begin an investigation to find out who is responsible. Council voted 5 to 2 to authorize Council President Gerrie Carey and Borough Manager Virginia Kehoe as signers for activity of non-uniform pensions and police pensions. Council discussed the Spring Clean Up, sponsored by State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich, to be held April 28 from 12 a.m. - 3 p.m. Flyers, available to the public at the meeting, stated, “We are seeking volunteers to pick up trash and debris, especially along roadways, borough parks and streams. Community organizations, churches, schools and businesses are encouraged to participate in this community event.”

Trainer hours topic of discussion BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE

CLARKS SUMMITAbington Heights Superintendent Dr. Michael Mahon opened the April 4 school board work session by announcing that Abington Heights Middle School has been re-designated as a “School to Watch.” “It’s a very, very positive thing,” he said. Clarks Summit Elementary and Waverly Elementary Schools will receive grants from the United States Tennis Association to help coordinate their junior tennis programs. Mahon also announced that all four Abington Heights Odyssey of the Mind teams have advanced to states out of 112 teams in the competition. “Abington Heights really distinguished itself at the competition,” he said. The Robotics team advanced to the quarterfinal round of a recent district event. The Forensic team qualified 10 students for the state competition. Eight high school students exhibited artwork in Scranton following their participation in the “Artist of the Month” regional competition On April 13, fourth grade girl scouts from South Abington and Newton Ransom Elementary will take part in a “Uniquely Me” girl scouts self-esteem program that was created in 2002 to address a critical nationwide problem of low self esteem among adolescent and pre-adolescent girls. High School English Teacher Marilyn Pryle will speak at the International Reading Association 2012 Annual Convention in Chicago, Illinois. The convention is from April 29-May 2. Pryle will speak May 2. Her topic is based on ideas from her book Easy and Effective Writing Lessons for English Language Learners Twenty-one members of the 2011 football team were recently named to the Pennsylvania Football News AllAcademic team. The board discussed the availability of athletic trainers Board member Jeanne Cadman thought it was troublesome that trainers may not be readily available if needed in the upcoming months. “It’s concerning to me that we’ve just begun the spring sports and the 900 hours are almost gone.” According to Mahon, the school decided on 900 hours a few years ago because the usage of trainers was “out of control.” “That is the absolute lowest limit any school would consider,” Mahon said. “I feel that I have the authority to extend beyond 900 hours because I characterize our athletic programs as ‘catastrophically successful.’ They are always in the playoffs and playing more games. That puts a strain on the budget and trainers. We’ve worked hard to keep it at 900 hours and we’re happy we are where we are. “We’re as efficient as we’ve ever been, but we have to keep watching it.” The Abington Heights School Board will next meet April 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Administration Building, Grove Street.

In an interview with police at the South Abington Police Department, Cerco allegedly told investigators that he “likes to dress in women’s clothing” and was “sick of going to the mall, buying women’s clothing, and returning it when he was done with them.” He allegedly confirmed to police that he had requested clothing items from the 12year-old and that he “had pictures of himself dressed in women’s clothing” that he planned to send to her from his cellular phone. Cerco also allegedly admitted that he “solicited another team member for Victoria’s Secret” yoga pants and that they were “at his residence in a pile of laundry.” Mahon confirmed that Cerco is no longer coaching at the school. “We’re very proud of the fact that the student spoke up and alerted us about the situation,” Mahon added in a phone interview Monday. “Other than that, the charges speak for themselves.” Cerco was arraigned April 5 on the single charge of corruption of minors.

I don’t want to see animals in a barn at all times and I don’t want to hear barking all day and night. We are experiencing bad water there now and our road is in terrible shape. Putting a kennel there is not a good thing. I have lived here 25 years and I am disappointed my neighbors are not here tonight,” said Jenkins. The board approved the installation of the kennel as long as all conditions of the conditional use permit are followed and observed.

ACOG hears assets of EMA

Scouting Scene With Tyler VanGorder

BY EMILY CULLEY Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS GREEN- The Abington Council of Governments assembled April 5 for their monthly meeting. Guest Herman Johnson, the Emergency Management Coordinator for Clarks Summit Borough, spoke about the importance of every community having an emergency management coordinator. It is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to have a coordinator to assist fire and police departments during a natural disaster or any other situation that requires additional aid. Johnson said the EMA coordinator properly documents damage that requires outside assistance or funding because FEMA requires proper documentation before funding any projects. He used the examples of flooding in 2006, as well as flooding due to the recent Hurricane Irene. There he took photographs to secure grants. Johnson brought Clarks Summit’s Emergency Operations Book that includes a map of flood plains, checklists, list of special needs residents, as well as an agreement between the Clarks Summit Borough and the Abington Heights School District to use buses in case of evacuation. Clarks Summit has an EMA vehicle equipped with safety cones, a Geiger counter, a radiation detection kit and litter for cleaning oil spills. “I would highly recommend that if you don’t have an EMA coordinator, appoint one and get him to the training,” said Johnson. He told the council that Clarks Summit’s EMA vehicle and his aid as EMA coordinator are available to their communities. Also mentioned were upcoming events in the Abington Area. The Ransom Lions Club is hosting a pancake breakfast April 22 at the Community Hall from 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. Cost is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children under 12. On April 21, from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. there will be an Earth Day Street Fair on Depot and State Streets in Clarks Summit where people can drop off ink cartridges, batteries, eye glasses and light bulbs. On May 6, from 10 a.m. there will be a car show to benefit the Scranton School for Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children. More information can be found at


A memorable March

Mayfield Elementary shares some Seuss In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Dr. Margaret Billings-Jones, Superintendent of Lakeland School District, read a Dr. Seuss book to the Mayfield Elementary school students on Read Across America Day. Shown are Dr. Margaret Billings-Jones and students Bradley Ligi, Brooke Kissolovege, Luigi Vitucci, Carter Stone, Cody Martin, Kayden West, Alexia Bower, Mason McDonald, Cody Allen, Robert Smith, Samantha Black, Gabrielle Ketch, Nathan Hunt, Jamy Kovolenus, Gage Tolerico, Joshua Ogozaly, Alysha Boshman.

March held the very popular father and son campout. This campout is unique because cub scouts are allowed to attend. Also fathers are requested to attend and tent with their sons. When the scouts first arrived at camp they set up their tents. The scouts had time to relax and then there was lunch. The lunches were packed in what is called a foil pack. One wraps precooked food in tin foil. At camp, a fire was started and burnt down to coals. The foil packs were cooked on these coals. The day mostly consisted of patrols going to scout skill stations spread around camp. The stations were run by older scouts. They consisted of orienteering, first aid, totin’ chip, leave no trace, fire

building and shelter building. Afterward the scouts had a couple of hours to do whatever they wanted. When dinner came, the scouts were treated with a variety of food that was prepared by adults at this campout. Later that night the patrols presented skits in front of the entire troop. After a fun day, the scouts soon went to bed. The cub scouts were lucky to be able to sleep indoors, while the boy scouts had to sleep in the cold outside. Sunday morning the scouts had a good breakfast and went home after a fun weekend. March of 2012 is a very memorable month for me. It is one that I will certainly remember for the rest of my life.


Shown is the Opening Flag Ceremony at the start of a recent father and son camping trip.

On March 21, 2012, I passed my Eagle Scout board. Now I am officially an Eagle Scout. The road to Eagle is not an easy one. Only about 6 percent of all boy scouts complete the journey and obtain the Eagle rank. Eagle is the highest rank obtainable in boy scouts. It is the only rank that you cannot earn from the requirements alone. It must be awarded to you. The rank is highly respected and those who earn it feel accomplished. Probably the best part of obtaining the rank is realizing the journey that was accomplished to get there. I have been involved in scouting since first grade. I have traveled to various locations, made great friends and learned a lot of things. Most importantly I feel that I have improved significantly as an individual. However the journey has not ended yet. I still have two more years of youth membership in the boy scouts. Once the Eagle rank is achieved, scouts can earn eagle palms. A palm is rewarded for every five extra merit badges that are earned that are not included in the 21 required for Eagle. The road to eagle is one that will not be forgotten. These scouts are great representations of the Boy Scout oath and law. Remember a scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. Tyler VanGorder has the rank of Eagle in Boy Scout Troop 160 from Clarks Summit. He is a sophomore student at Abington Heights High School. For more information, visit

A performance by Susquehanna’s Symphonic Band was conducted by Dr. Eric Hinton, director of bands; and guest conductor David Kish ’98, Ph.D., is the director of bands at Metropolitan State College. Hopkins, a member of the Symphonic Band, plays the saxophone. A sophomore majoring in music performance at Susquehanna, he is a 2010 graduate of Abington Heights High School and the son of David and Leigh Hopkins.

throughout the world. “It’s just amazing how much the government or county or non-profits have made a difference during times that are hard for citizens…so no matter how little, every bit is appreciated it. It’s a team effort. I stress that – T-E-A-M effort.” Though Demarest’s team is small, he claims it’s mighty. He says there are a lot of clubs larger and stronger than his yet they are no. 1 in their district per capita in giving per member, 12 members and counting. The majority of them are baby boomers, born between 1946-1964. “At present, we have most likely achieved the American Dream. But, slowly, our future and dreams are fading fast. As far as tomorrow, most are taking it a day at a time. If you care about our young people, our children, and grandkids, how many tomorrows will it take so they have a brighter future? Will they be able to live the American Dream?” Some of Demarest’s successes with Trail Rotary include having started a chess club, sponsored a bowling tournament for the last two years to raise money for polio and helping out at the library every Saturday from 10 until noon. His goal is to increase membership. His hope is to start clubs for past alumni, teachers from any district club and 21-30 yearold graduates from Lackawanna Trail. Demarest said it only takes five members to start those satellite clubs and members can meet once or twice a month whenever and wherever they want. As for Trail Rotary, they meet at Gin’s Restaurant on Tuesdays at noon and meetings are open to the public. According to him, the difference is non-profit organizations do this with love, honor and most important, they do it peacefully. “There is little time left before we pass on, so be a mentor, volunteer, perform a service or join a club. We are the future. With positive thinking and an ‘I Can Do’ attitude, we can make dreams come true. Kindle the spark to continue. Ignite the flame toward mankind. Reach within and embrace humanity.” Demarest graduated in 1971 from Passaic Valley Regional High School in Little Falls, N. J. He took I.C.S. business management courses and spent 15 years as a manager at Toys R Us and Kay Bee Toys. For seven years he served as a supervisor for 14 convenience stores in New Jersey and the last seven years at Ray’s Shur-Save Market in Factoryville. He is a former councilman and baseball coach. Demarest has been married twice but now is in a relationship with his first love, 41 years later. He has three children from his first marriage: Carrie, Corinne and Courtney. He also has a son from his second marriage: DonMichael, two step-daughters and seven grandchildren.

Genres intertwine at Civic Ballet by Joan Mead-Matsui Abington Journal Correspondent


t the upcoming Scranton Civic Ballet spring “In Concert” performance eventgoers and ballet lovers can expect to find a diversified mix of two genres: classical ballet and live music, as the Scranton Civic Ballet children’s, apprentice and senior companies take the stage at the Mellow Theatre at Lackawanna College. Scranton Civic Ballet artistic director, Helen Gaus, who founded Scranton Civic Ballet in 1978, described the April 15 spring performance “In Concert” as diversified.

Literary Arts Writers Group, for ages 18 and up, at the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock, Thursdays

She said, “This spring ballet performance is special because it is diversified…The senior company is performing to live music. We have a classical guitarist, Jay Stevesky and a flutist, Ed Wargo, who will be playing for the Spanish dances, and the second piece, will be performed musically by Doug Smith and his band (The Doug Smith Orchestra).” Doug Smith, of the Doug Smith Orchestra, who plays bass, has been working in the music industry full time for most of his life.

Hardly any dance ensembles use live music around here. For her (Gaus) to go to the trouble to get the grants to be able to do that is a pretty cool thing. The biggest thing I like about this type of performance is interacting with dancers. We rarely get to play live music for choreographed dance, so it’s nice to be able to per-

Do I ever have exciting news for you about the opening weekend of the Dietrich’s Spring Film Festival! Not only will we be celebrating with hors d’oeuvres, wine, desserts and magnificent films for the Opening Night Gala on Friday, April 13, but we will also have two special guests with us. The Dietrich’s film buyer from New York, Jeffrey Jacobs, will be with us to explain why he chose the films “The Kid With a Bike” and “The Women on the Sixth Floor” to launch opening night, and Dr. Philip Mosley will introduce the films. Coincidentally, Dr. Mosley has written a book about the directors of “The Kid With a Bike” called “The Cinema of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne: Responsible Realism,” which will be released later this year. We still have a few tickets for opening night if you would like to join us for a night of food, film, and fun. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased by calling 570.996.1500. The morning after the opening night gala Saturday, April 14 at 10:30 a.m., the Dietrich will be hosting a special, free event called “Meet the Film Buyer” with Jeffrey Jacobs. During this discussion Jeffrey will explain how the film business works followed by a Q & A session. Movies are so fascinating and I think it will be great to learn the ins and outs of the business from an expert. We hope to see you there. Jeffrey Jacobs is President of Jacobs Entertainment Inc, a film buying and marketing firm. He is the film buyer for the Dietrich Theater and a total of 50 screens across, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Florida and as far west as Park City, Utah. He was the film buyer for two of New York City’s bestknown cinemas, the Angelika Film Center from 1989 until 1997 and the Paris Theatre from 1997 to 2009. As a filmmaker, he produced and directed a feature-length documentary, “A Sidewalk Astronomer” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has been widely seen on public television. The following Saturday, April 21 at 11 a.m., the Dietrich will be hosting a free Mid Festival Movie Discussion. This will give all of us a chance to discuss the meaning and significance of the some of the festival films with other who have seen them. Or if you haven’t seen a certain movie, it might help you decide whether you want to see it. Hildy Morgan and Bill Chapla, film buffs extraordinaire, will facilitate the discussion.

Bernard is a sea otter who lives in a zoo. He loves living there and best of all, he loves naptime, curling up with all the other sea otters, except for one little problem: Bernard snores, he snores loudly, and keeps all the otters awake, so he tries on his own to find a solution. His search for a different place in which to sleep is told in the picture book story, “Stop Snoring, Bernard,” written and illustrated by Pennsylvania author, Zachariah Ohora. The book had the distinction of being chosen as the featured book for this year’s Pennsylvania Early Literacy Initiative, “One Book, Every Young Child.” Mr. Ohora will be at the Abington Community Library on Thursday, April 26, at 10 a.m. to read the story aloud and do otter crafts with the children in attendance.

Call the library at 587.3440 to register. “The Story of Ireland: a History of the Irish People,” written by Neil Hegarty, is a new addition to the adult nonfiction collection at the library. The book reexamines Irish history, challenging the accepted stories and long-held myths associated with Ireland, beginning with the first settlement in 433 A. D. Hegarty presents a fresh perspective, examining how world events, including Europe’s 16th century religious wars, the French and American Revolutions, and Ireland’s policy of neutrality during World War II have shaped the country over the course of its long and fascinating history. In an up-to-date afterword, he details the present state of affairs in the country. A review in “Publisher’s Weekly” hails the book as a “finely researched and timely celebration of Ireland’s turbulent history and conservative people.” UPCOMING EVENTS Wednesday, April 11 AfterSchool Program 4 - 4:45 PM “Titanic: 1912” will be the theme as we take a look at books from the non-fiction collection and get together for an activity.

Rogler, now executive director, said the theatre is “almost completely back to its former glory,” maybe even looking better than before the flooding. She said the only thing they are still working on is funding for new heating and air conditioning, but the rest of the work is complete, thanks to the community volunteers, in time for the Spring Film Festival. “It’s an exciting time of year for us,” Rogler said. The festival will begin with an Opening Night Gala April 13 at 5:30 p.m., and will include a wide variety of films, the majority of which are in foreign languages with English subtitles. Morgan said she feels the foreign films help introduce people to other countries and cultures they would never be able to visit otherwise. “I think it’s always important with the festival,” she said, “to bring the world to our small town.”

form the music. It’s the interaction of the two art forms: live music and live dancing. Putting those two together is fun and artistically rewarding. It’s something that doesn’t occur a lot anymore except maybe in New York or large cities.” The members of the apprentice group will perform “Les Patineurs,” a series of dances reflecting incidents that occurred at a skating pond a long time ago. The children’s ballet, “Alice Meets the Queen,” is a segment taken from the full production of Alice, “so that we get a little snippet of Alice and her sister reading,” said Gaus. “She falls asleep and in comes the White Rabbit. They take that into the queen’s garden, which is really a lot of minuets… It’s funny,” said Gaus. The White Rabbit will be performed by Tamane Takehara, Clarks Summit. Twelve-year-old Cara Mia Manasek, 12, of Clarks Summit, began her dance lessons at age five, and is one of the dancers to simulate ice skating in the performance. She said, “I like the turns. They are fun and exciting to watch and do.” Jackie Dende, also an ice skater, will appear on stage in a bright blue costume with a “really pretty” sash to go with it. “What I like about this particular performance is that it gets you ready for the spring season. It’s really what everyone pictures ballet to be – pink and flowing. I love how we have the bright costumes. It’s really exciting.” Costumes for “In Concert,” are handmade by Helen Kasarda with alterations by seamstress, Nancy Hudanich. “We have beautiful Spanish costumes in antique gold for the Spanish dances, and naturally, for “Stars and Stripes,” we have red, white and blue (colors). For Les Patineurs, we have costumes trimmed with fur. Absolutely beautiful…,” said Gaus. Tickets are $14 and are available at Scranton Civic Ballet Company and at the door. Performances begin at 2 p.m. For more information, call 570.343.0115.

Eric Carle’s art inspires mural creation

From left are those who worked on creating the Tropical Mural based on the art of Eric Carle: Rebecca Darling; Shannon Baransky; Janet Geeza, Program Coordinator at the Dalton Library; Samantha Morgan, Lili Martin, Penn Wu, Celeste Cali, Lackawanna Trail Elementary School Librarian; and Vicki Vanfleet, Keystone College student observer and assistant. Absent from the photo is Sarah Darling who also participated in the classes.

Pieces of the Abingtons

Recent sessions for the Kreative Kids at the Dalton Library on Mondays focused on the art technique utilized by Eric Carle in his children’s books. Animals are created based on shapes using non-traditional colors for the wild beasts. The shapes are cut out of tissue paper and then a solution of Elmer’s Glue watered down is used to adhere the tissue to cover stock. The overlapping of colored tissue makes for

a variety of brilliant colors. During the first of three sessions, the students made greeting cards to learn the process of creating the animals. The students then selected a tropical theme for their mural and created animals to be a part of the theme during the second session. Finally, the students created the background for their mural using the tissue paper with glue technique and added the animals they had made.

They were amazed at the results. Visitors to the Dalton Library can see the mural, which is displayed along with photographs of the process. In addition, a photo collage of the participants’ efforts was created and sent to author/illustrator Eric Carle, along with an article about the project. This was sent to thank him for the influence and inspiration he had on the project.

Clarks Summit, Pa.

APRIL 11 TO APRIL 17, 2012

First-year coach making strides For the first time as members of the competitive Commonwealth Conference, Arcadia University Ken Baseball swept Spangenberg through a three-game series by knocking off host Lebanon Valley College March 31 in the series doubleheader with a pair of 4-3 wins. “It’s only fitting after yesterday’s outcome that we come out with the same expectations today,” said first-year head coach and Arcadia alum, Ken Spangenberg, Class of 2008. The Clarks Summit native added, “I attribute our success in the clutch this season to our pre-season work ethic and the dedication the guys gave to improving their individual skills in the off-season. And we worked hard at the onset of the pre-season, so in pressure situations, the guys have the confidence to come through.” Following a finish in the series opener back in Philadelphia Friday afternoon, winning it in the bottom of the ninth (6-5) on a walk-off walk, the Knights grabbed the bull by the horns on Saturday’s opening tilt and never trailed. The opening game win matched the Knights’ highest number of victories since the 2009-10 season when team finished 9-29 overall. The victory also marks the team’s first conference win in Annville, (at Lebanon Valley College), and the first time the Knights have won a series in Commonwealth play since they joined the league for the 2009 season. The Dutchmen erased the Knights’ 1-0 lead in the nightcap with a three-run sixth but Kyle Jackson ’12, Nick Petroski ’12 and Mike McElhatton ’12 each delivered run-scoring singles to put the Knights’ back on top where they held on for their tenth win of the season- their highest number of wins since the 2007-08 campaign (17-21 overall). With the series sweep, Arcadia in Glenside maintains a stronghold on the conference’s third slot. The Knights have yet to face fourth-place Albright, fifth-place Widener and last place Messiah as they look to make the push for a See Coach, Page 14

This technology gives each golfer immediate feedback on their performance which can be utilized for game improvement and/or entertainment. “Our equipment is one of the best on the market and will track every part of your game,” Arthur said. “The number one thing is accuracy. It’s a top notch guide for game improvement.” Arthur thinks golfers will enjoy the comfortable, controlled atmosphere of the facility. “It has a country club-like setting with stone and natural wood walls,” he said. In addition to being a training facility, Golf 365 hosts social gatherings such as birthday parties and will serve as a location for corporate meetings. The facility also offers tournaments, leagues, and youth programs. Arthur, who was a school teacher for eight years, was furloughed in 2011 due to budget cuts. “I’m a very active person,” he said. “I love the game of golf and living in Northeast Pennsylvania, the golf season is relatively short. I did some research and found that the area needed an indoor facility to help extend the golf season.” PGA Certified Instructor Joe Acla will offer individual or group instruction.

Spangenberg is returning to Glenside after serving as a two-year assistant baseball coach and recruiting coordinator at Edgewood College, Madison, Wi. From 2009 to 2011, Spangenberg led an offense that broke 16 school records and, after being selected to finish 6th at the start of preseason, the Eagles claimed their first Northern Athletics Conference Championship. Prior to joining the Edgewood coaching staff Spangenberg served as an assistant coach at Keystone College, LaPlume, for the 2008-2009 season, where he worked with the infielders, hitters, and assisted with recruiting. The Giants captured the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Championship coming one game away from the Division III College World Series while sporting a final record of 40-6. The team was also ranked as high as fourth in the country that season. Through his time spent at Keystone and Edgewood combined, Spangenberg recruited and coached four players drafted into the Major League Baseball system, including two who signed professional contracts.
