CLARKS SUMMIT- After months of consideration, Clarks Summit council members voted to reject a proposed Knox Box ordinance at their April 6 meeting. Borough Manager Virginia Kehoe has described a Knox Box at previous meetings as a box located outside of businesses which, in case of an emergency, can be opened by a communications center. The Knox Boxes, as stated in the draft of the ordinance, would be required at “all commercial, institutional and industrial buildings as well as newly constructed or converted residential buildings with four or more apartment or dwelling units.” Abington Business and Professional Association (ABPA) members Barry Kaplan and Charles Sandercock were on hand to discuss their viewpoints on the Knox Box ordinance. Kaplan said he was there to represent the association and the members of the Abing-

ton Community Library Board. He said that the committee of which he is a part had been granted authorization to speak on behalf of the association. “The ABPA and the Library and myself all came to the same conclusion that we can see the value of having a system in place for Emergency Management to have access to buildings, but are pretty strongly opposed to it being a mandatory system…” Council person Patrick Williams, who said he is considering purchasing a Knox Box for his house, thanked the ABPA members who attended a meeting April 4 about the proposed Knox Box ordinance. Williams suggested at the meeting that they table the ordinance for further discussion. Borough Manager Virginia Kehoe suggested that instead of tabling the ordinance in its draft phase, that they reject it completely. “The Knox Box issue isn’t dead, it’s just this way it’s written. The mandatory part is the big hang-up,” said Council Vice President Roy Davis. Council members voted five to zero to reject the ordinance. The topic was added to the April 26 work session agenda to

Editor, The Friends of the Abington Community Library book sale was a huge success. Thank you to all Friends, board members, staff and patrons who donated, sorted, moved, unpacked, set up, sold, bought and helped clean up. I don’t think we’ve ever been entirely cleaned up by 3 p.m. on a Saturday following a sale. There was a huge turnout on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. for the sale, and people remarked how our sale is “famous” and greatly anticipated. Alice Kohn, treasurer, reported the sale did very well and expenses were kept to minimum. Special thanks to LA Lewis, Movers, for their support; the Abington Heights School District maintenance men for their help getting the books to the church Thursday; and ERA One Source Realty for the van use. Thanks also to Abington Heights Interact and National Honor Society and the young men from Our Lady of Peace School, who were all a tremendous help this year. Of course, our Library Teens were there with their

delicious bake sale and helped wherever needed. Finally, members of Always in Stitches were on hand to help with the final quilt raffle ticket sales. The quilt, lovingly made and donated by this group, was won by a generous and avid patron, John Simpson, who was delighted to get the call that afternoon that he won. Thanks to Sandy Longo and Library Teens the bake sale and Reuse, Recycle Sale were also very successful. Thanks to staff who sorted, priced and helped where needed on that event as well as everyone who donated items. Unsold items were donated to the Taylor Library for its upcoming sale, further benefiting all of us in the LCLS. Finally, I want to thank our media sponsors: Abington Journal, Suburban, Scranton Times and Happenings Magazine, who helped get the word out all over NEPA. It truly takes a village to make this sale so successful. Leah Ducato Rudolph, Director Abington Community Library

CLARKS SUMMIT -With Earth Day coming up April 22, Everything Natural, in Clarks Summit, is putting together a day of activities that should inform and educate residents on how to better treat Mother Earth year round. The store will host an open house April16 from10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “This year, Earth Day coincides with Good Friday. We thought that there would be confusion and distraction…so we actually checked with the Earth Day Network, and said, ‘Is there a day you guys are recommending observances or activities,’ and they said, ‘It’s all over the calendar this year,’” said Everything Natural co-owner Barry Kaplan. This year, Everything Natural will welcome experts from the Lackawanna River Corridor Association, The Countryside Conservancy, and the Marcellus Shale Task Force. “They’ll each have representatives here to give information, to speak to people about their perspective issues, and to answer questions,” said Kaplan. In addition to the speakers, Jill Padua, of Jill’s Kitchen, will give an organic food presentation, prepare organic pasta and greens with her special sauce, at noon. This year the store’s efforts were noted in the April11issue of Supermarket News. The Open House will begin at 10 a.m. with an Asana Class with yoga instructor Barbara Cohen, followed by a Gaia Meditation for world peace at11a.m. Both classes will take place in the Yoga Studio, which will also be the location for a Drum Circle from1to 4 p.m. For a schedule of events, visit www.everythingnaturalpa.com or call 570.586.9684.

‘Forever Young’

BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Local children are invited to get their fishing rods ready. Plans are underway for the second annual “Forever Young Kids’ Fishing Derby,” according to Linda Young, Clarks Summit Centennial Committee member and one of the organizers of the event. The derby is being held in memory of Young’s late husband, Lawrence E. “Bud” Young. She established the event based on Bud Young’s love of fishing. At a Clarks Summit Centennial Committee meeting held April 5, at the Clarks Summit Borough Building, Young said, “The 2nd annual Forever Young Kids’ Fishing Derby is doubly special to me this year - in memory of ‘Bud’ we will be helping to celebrate Clarks Summit’s centennial while providing kids with the opportunity to fish and

BAKE

Continued from Page 1

Canteen Chair, Kate Cole explained, “It is a great comfort food and after this long winter, we could all use a little comfort.” She added, “The idea was inspired by the two cookbooks published by the Comm, “The Flavor of Waverly” in 1986 and 24 years later in “From Our Hearth to Yours,” published in 2010 and sold at the 2010 House and Garden Show. Both featured recipes, including coffee cake recipes from so many great cooks from this community, many of whom are also great Comm supporters. We thought it would be fun to have a competition where volunteers could submit their best coffee cakes in a festive setting that also benefits the Comm. We hope everyone will come to the show to not only shop some great vendors but to have some great food.” Abington residents Julianne Barrett, Tami Thompson and Carie Hildebrand will participate in the Bake-Off. Julianne Barrett, Waverly, will enter “a recipe my grandmother got from a friend.” She added, “As a child, I remember having it every Thanksgiving morning while we watched the Macy’s parade. I am submitting the recipe because it is my children’s favorite cake. We have it every holiday (not just Thanksgiving) and it has even been served as birthday cake in our house. My daughter is learning how to make it now, which is neat. As for the secret ingredient, it is probably the sour cream, but I would like to think it is the love that goes into making it for the people I care about.” Thompson, Waverly, is planning on baking an almond poppy seed coffee cake using local ingredients as much as possible including free-range organic eggs, milk and butter. Thompson said, “I think that the organic almond extract adds a modern appeal combined with the delicate crunch of the poppy seeds. It has a moist crumb that is perfect with coffee and delightful for breakfast. It is drizzled with a tart, crunchy glaze. It is one of my most requested cakes to make.” “I’ve never entered a baking contest before and the coffee cake itself is just simple, no fancy ingredients, and not too sweet. Even children seem to really enjoy it,” said Hildebrand of Waverly. The rules for the BakeOff are as follows: Coffee Cakes should be dropped off at the Comm Canteen April 16 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.; cakes should be homemade and not store bought and they should be sliced for judging. The coffee cakes will be judged by a secret panel and awards will be given

for first, second and third. A recipe is optional and all entries will be served at the show for the remainder of the weekend. Organizers are also seeking donations to sell in the canteen to benefit the Comm. Donations will be accepted even for those not planning to enter coffee cake in the competition. Kristin Jungbluth the House, Garden and Gift Show chair said, “The first ever coffee cake bake-off should make any coffee cake lover want to attend our area is filled with people of amazing talents of which baking is one. Many locals have expressed interest and we’re still looking for more contributors.” While at the show, for those looking for repurposed gift items, “Upcycled” is the theme of 2010 Comm Spring Hearth Booth. “Upcycling” is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.” Jane McGreevy and Rachel Gilbert are co-chairs of the Hearth Booth. Gilbert said, “Jane and I have worked as co-chairs on this project. We have both been crafting and sewing for a long time. And this effort has kept us both busy. In terms of Upcycling, repurposing and recycling - I think most important is the profound effect these three words have for our environment and more importantly- our children’s’ environment. If we can change things to make them more valuable or useful in the eyes of the buyer and prevent the buyer from buying something totally new, we have helped people find worth in an existing product and prevented something from heading to the landfills. Many people today are eager to throw things out when that item can still be used in its existing format or changed to fit a different need. Of course I am not encouraging people to become hoarders, but we surely can make an effort to move away from being a throw-away society.” Some of the “upcycled” items at the Spring Hearth Booth are hummingbird feeders; a spring wreath selection; hand painted pots; Easter gift items; magnet boards/post-it boards themed with flowers and sports, made from recycled cookie sheets, and metal trays; dollsmade from socksstuffed animal stuffing and leftover buttons, hat tassels and appliques and mason jar pin cushions.The items are price starting at $2. Tickets are $6 at the door or $5.50 with a show card or ad. For more information, call 570.586.8191ext. 2 or to print a downloadable show card, visit waverlycomm.org. The show sponsor is ERA.

Jaya plans for fitness ‘victory’ BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT – The public is invited to join the owners of Jaya Studio, Kelly O’Brien and Hilary Steinberg for the grand opening of their Yoga, Pilates and Specialty Fitness Studio located at 320 South State St., Clarks Summit. The studio opened April 1, but a grand opening celebration is planned for April 16 and 17. During the grand opening weekend, visitors will have the opportunity to meet O’Brien, Steinberg and their staff, tour the studio, and enjoy free sample classes. Steinberg is a native of Clarks Summit and O’Brien lives in Green Ridge and grew up near Moscow. Mayor Harry Kelly will be on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony April 16 at 11:30 a.m. Steinberg’s friend, Kimberly McCullough, General Hospital’s Robin Scorpio, will also pay a visit to the studio and teach a guest class. “She (Kimberly McCul-

lough) is going to be here to do a guest class and be here for the opening, which is really exciting for me personally and for the studio,” said Steinberg. Melissa Russo of Yoga Journeys will be leading a special children’s class Sunday at 2:45 p.m. All classes held during the grand opening are on a first-come, first served basis and no reservations are needed. Light fare and refreshments by Eden A Vegan Cafe and Atami Sushi will be provided. Donations will be accepted to benefit the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, Clarks Summit. According to O’Brien, the studio offers plenty. “We have something for everybody, including different levels of yoga. Mostly open level and slow flow, which is geared for beginners; hot power vinyasa, where the room is heated to approximately 85 degrees; Pilates and Zumba.” Steinberg added, “We’re also going to add some other specialty fitness classes. We have a hip hop

class; ballet sculpt class and a flirty girls’ fitness class coming in May and kids’ yoga and Zumba. Flirty Girls Fitness is similar to Zumba in that it’s a dance fitness class; it’s created by women for women. It’s a fun way for women to be with women and feel empowered. It’s a really fun dance inspired workout. It’s all about pink: pink boas and pink fun stuff.” The word Jaya is translated to “victory” in Sanskrit and they chose Jaya as their business name because, “I think it’s one we really felt strongly about,” said O’Brien. On the calendar for the coming months are an 8week Beginner’s Series starting April 23; A Vinyasa Flow Class set to live music by Mark Woodyatt April 30; and a 200-hour Teacher Training set for June 10. On the staff at Jaya Yoga are instructors Jessica Pugliese, Alex Dubois, Patti Vanston, Kris Totsky, Jessica Johnson, Amanda Dorio and Amy Sekol.

ROTARY

kins, who was president from 1978 to 1979. Diane Calabro has been a Rotarian since 1988. One of the first women to join, she was also the first woman president of the club from 1999 to 2000. “It’s a bonding. It’s an incredible bonding. Once a Rotarian, always a Rotarian,” the Clarks Summit resident said. Another difference between The Rotary Club of the Abingtons in the late 1920s and its current format, is the group of members. Dr. Gus Vlassis, PDG, has been a member since 1968. Vlassis said there are approximately 170 countries involved and 1.3 million men and women. The organization has been growing in size, but in the past it was more difficult to become a Rotarian due to a classification system. “…

When I joined, it was really difficult to get in Rotary. We went on a classification system and the rule was that you could only have one classification. So for example, let’s say there was a wood worker and another fellow who was a wood worker wanted to join. The first wood worker could say, ‘No I don’t want him in here because he’s my competition.’” The Rotary Club of the Abingtons meets every Thursday at 12:10 at the Nichols Village Hotel and Spa. The location has changed numerous times. Watkins said the club used to meet at the corner of Claremont and School Street before moving down to Topper’s Diner. The weekly meeting place moved to the Ramada for several years before it moved to Nichols Village around 1990. The weekly meeting is not just a lunch, it is also a learning experience, Vlassis said. “

…We learn a lot because we have good speakers every week… ” One constant over the past several years in the club has been the annual fireworks every summer hosted by Rotary near the Fourth of July. Watkins said they began around Clarks Summit Borough’s 75th anniversary. He said it has grown in size since then, and estimated that 10,000 people attended in 2010. Phyllis Watkins, 79, said she wishes others could see how the community celebrates. “This is who we really are as a country… the kinds of things we do, especially here in Clarks Summit, are what the country is.” Vlassis believes that the Rotary Club of the Abingtons stands out for several reasons. “One, we have an excellent meeting place. Two, we have excellent meals. Three we have excellent speakers. Four, we have a very congenial, funloving group of Rotarians.”

Vocational students address A.H. board BY DON MCGLYNN Abington Journal Reporter

CLARKS SUMMIT- The students of Abington Heights High School who participate in the cosmetology program at Empire Beauty School explained to the school board they were not going to let their program be taken away without a fight. The 16 students currently enrolled in the program were in attendance during the board’s monthly work session, held March 6. The program is one of several cuts the district may make in the 2011-12 school year. The girls urged the board not to eliminate the program. “We lose very few students at Abington Heights,� said Abington Heights High School vocational counselor Lynne Spangenberg in regard to the school’s 99 percent graduation rate. “I believe we have kept many students in school, and kept students graduating, because we offer alternatives.� Current students, parents, a teacher from Empire Beauty School, Lori Karwoski, and graduates of the program echoed Spangenberg’s sentiments. They all spoke before the board Wednesday. “Empire was a gift to us,� said Abington Heights graduate Jessica Mirabelli, who participated in the program. “Taking it away would be tragic. I seriously believe if it wasn’t for Empire Beauty

Calendar adjustments set The Abington Heights School District calendar has been adjusted as follows: April 22: No school April 25: Act 80 Day – No school for students April 26: Full day of school for high school and middle school students; elementary school early dismissals for Elementary Parent Conferences May 27: Full day of school May 30: No school The last student day and graduation moved to June 15. The last teacher day June 16.

School I would have dropped out of high school, and would be working at some minimum wage job. I don’t know where I would be without it.� Because of the program, Mirabelli was able to get a job at Lana’s in Scranton. “I love my job more than anything, and it’s not just a job, it’s a career. It’s the best thing that happened to me in my life so far,� said Mirabelli. Members of the board said they understood the program’s value, but the decision to cut it is purely financial. “What’s cutting these programs is that people have stopped sending us money,� said Superintendent Michael Mahon. “We are getting, from the state of Pennsylvania, over 10 percent less money than we got last year.� The board approved a preliminary budget earlier this year that included a 1.4 percent tax increase, and the elimination of

nine teaching positions, but it assumed there would be no change in state funding. Governor Tom Corbett’s recent proposed budget calls for a decrease in state education funding. As a result, the board has been forced to look at a number of additional cuts. In addition to the program at Empire, the board will also be looking at the list of retiring teachers, which includes Latin, art, science, reading and special education, four elementary, two computer and two librarians. The board will be reviewing the positions, and possibly only filling the vacant art position for the 2011-12 school year. Those in attendance said they understood the tough economic times the district is facing, but asked if there was any way the students currently enrolled in the program could be allowed to finish. They offered to help the district find ways to alleviate some of the cost as well as suggestions for making the program more cost effective, including hosting fundraisers and finding alternative modes of transportation so the district would not have to provide it. Currently the district is paying $5,200 for first-year students, $4,200 for second and third-year students and $35,000 in transportation. Mahon said he would check with the district’s insurance provider to make sure there are no issues with the students pro-

viding their own transportation, and then discuss the matter with the board. If the district can eliminate the transportation, the cost of the program would drop from $85,400 to $50,400 for the 201112 school year, and from $56,000 to $21,000 for the 201213 school year. In other business, Mahon announced new lockers would be installed in the high school this summer. The board approved and ac-

What kind of bird is Blu in the new movie "Rio"

We are currently in the middle of our first week of the Spring 2011 Film Festival and it definitely has been a celebration of fantastic films. I have already seen “Potiche” and “The Company Men.” During the second week of festival I hope to catch “Casino Jack,” “Biutiful,” “Another Year” and “Kings of Pastry.” Those folks who make it a goal to see all of the films in each festival always impress me, and this year we have 17 films in all. For a complete listing of film festival movies and show times, please visit our website www.dietrichtheater.com. Don’t miss out on a great two weeks of foreign, independent and art movies. The Dietrich is also offering a variety of children’s movies this month. We have the super hit “Hop” and will be bringing in the much-anticipated “Rio” in 3D in just a couple of days. Then on April 30, we will be hosting a special movie showing for children’s at 11 a.m. Admission, soda and popcorn are free. We would like to thank the Kintner Family for sponsoring this event in loving memory of “Jeeterbug”. For those of you who enjoy live entertainment, May is definitely the month to visit the Dietrich. For little ones and families, the Dietrich Children’s Theatre will be performing “Peter and the Wolf ” on May 6 at 1:30 p.m. and May 7 at 11 a.m. The show will have you asking questions such as, “What kinds of music does a cat make?” and “Could your grandfather be a bassoon?” Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev ponders these questions in his musical symphony for children, “Peter and the Wolf.” Come and experience the thrilling sights and sounds as a brave adventurer imagines catching a wolf, and with help from his friends and the orchestra, his dreams come true. The Pennsylvania Humanities Council has sponsored these free performances.

The literal story of what happened on April 14, 1865, is familiar: Abraham Lincoln was killed by John Wilkes Booth, a lunatic enraged by the Union victory and the prospect of black citizenship. This biography tells a new story, one that examines for the first time the bitter rivalry between Booth and his brother, Edwin, and why he decided to conspire against the president in the first place. The narrative points to Lincoln’s death more as the climax of a dark struggle between two brothers on divergent paths, rather than the struggle between North and South. “Reading Jackie,” by William Kuhn. Here is a behindthe-scenes account of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis at work: how she commissioned books and nurtured authors, as well as how she helped to shape stories that spoke to her strongly.

Each show consists of a national touring musician paired up with a local performer. Bill Rogan is the local performer for Saturday’s event. Rogan is original from the Scranton/Clarks Summit area and has played in New York. He started playing saxophone, then moved on to classical guitar. Over the years, he has developed his style, moving away from playing lead guitar lines to a “tapping” style, which uses alternate tunings and has a very percussive sound.

“Working with PocoNotes was an amazing experience. It’s always great working with someone as passionate as you are. They are very accommodating. They are just about the music. They bring in some amazing shows and artists,” Rogan said. Crookston also looks forward to the show. “The last time I played in Scranton at the Tripp House, Dolores and Pat from PocoNotes hosted the concert. It was one of those incredibly magical nights- the room was packed, buzz was in the air. My good friend Peter Glanville and I stepped up on stage and from the first moment there was this electricity in the room. It’s like we all became instant friends. I’ve been looking forward to coming back since then!” Glanville will also be playing the show as a last -minute addition. He will accompany Crookston on guitar and vocals.

And the organization has been instrumental in bringing together many area churches to assist those in need. “All of the young people (and adults) that have gone on this mission can attest to the changes it has made in their outlook on life. They have seen firsthand what poverty is and how it affects so many in the Appalachia area,” said Arnold.

The volunteers learn team work, compassion for others, acquire building skills and realize that God uses each one of them to help others. We have 23 youth volunteers and 12 adult volunteers.” During project meetings, youth volunteers have built recycling bins for aluminum cans, and they will also build chairs for the Abington Dog Park.

He excelled in band, which he accredited to having played percussion the longest. “I’m best at playing snare because I’ve been doing it the longest, but I like playing cool mallet parts, because I feel like part of the melody, like I’m adding to it.” Although Murphy will not pursue a degree in the field of music, he said he will continue to play during his college years. He will be attending Bloomsburg for three years, and then finishing up at Pennsylvania State University’s Main Campus to earn a degree in engineering. “While I’m at Bloomsburg, I’m going to play in the wind ensemble and orchestra.

Holocaust painting on display at First Presbyterian Church Enter the front doors of First Presbyterian Church in Clarks Summit, and you can’t help but notice the eight-foothigh, 13-foot-long oil painting in the entry area. Titled “Christ at Auschwitz,” this painting by Paul Weingarten is on loan to the church during the Lenten season from the Stony Point Center, a national conference center of the Presbyterian Church, located in Stony Point, New York. With special support from the Dalton Lumber/Do-It Center in Dalton, this large painting made the trip from the Hudson Valley to Clarks Summit in time for a special Holocaust Remembrance Service held at the

church March 27. “It’s one of the most striking pieces of religious art that I’ve ever seen,” said the Rev. Bill Carter, pastor of First Presbyterian. The painting depicts Jesus on a cross, wearing a yarmulke and humiliated as one in a death camp. He is surrounded by people who are tattooed, abused and condemned. Religious figures are depicted on both ends of the painting – one looking away in willful ignorance, the other scowling at the condemned people beside her, completely missing the significance of what she sees. As Rev. Carter explained, “This painting corrects every flattened-out, anti-Semitic

spin on the crucifixion. Jesus was not so much crucified by his people; he is crucified among his people. He understands their pain. We are grateful Scott LaCoe, vice president of the Dalton Do-It Center, for assisting us in transporting the painting here.” “Christ at Auschwitz” will continue on display at the church through the month of April. It can be viewed during daily church hours, from 8:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m., and on Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. For more information or directions, contact First Presbyterian Church at 570-5866306 or visit its Website at www.fpccs.org.

Keystone College to present acclaimed poet Marie Howe

In celebration of National Poetry Month, the Keystone College Concerts and Lectures Series, will present a poetry reading by acclaimed poet Marie Howe April 14 at 7 p.m. in Evans Hall, Hibbard Campus Center. The event is free and the public is invited to attend. Howe is the author of three volumes of poetry, “The Kingdom of Ordinary Time;” “The Good Thief;” and “What the Living Do.” She is also the co-editor of a book of essays, “In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic.” Howe received critical acclaim with her first book of poems, “The Good Thief.” Selected by Margaret Atwood as the winner of the National Poetry Series, the book explored themes of relationship, attachment, and loss in a uniquely personal search for transcendence. Her acclaimed second

book, “What the Living Do,” addressed the grief of losing a loved one. Howe was selected for a Lavan Younger Poets Prize from the American Academy of Poets. She has been a fellow at the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe College and a recipient of National Endowment for the Arts and Guggenheim fellowships. Her work has appeared in

The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, Harvard Review, and The Partisan Review, among others. Currently, Howe teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College, Columbia and New York University. For more information on Howe’s performance, contact Dr. David Elliott at 570.945.8453.

He was extremely proud of his military service as he was an army veteran of the Korean War. He was a devout Catholic and was a member of Our Lady of the Snows Church in Clarks Summit. Jerry always thought and cared for our troops overseas. He sent more that 3,000 pounds of packages to the110th Infantry Battalion stationed in Iraq in 2006, bringing joy to more than 900 Pennsylvania troops. Jerry was a gentle man. He loved his family, and his beloved Karen was always on his mind and in his heart. Surviving are four daughters, all

THE ABINGTON JOURNAL♦CLARKS SUMMIT, PA

Keystone students design district website Administrators of the Abington Heights School District were seeking a way to modernize their 10-yearold website without investing thousands of dollars needed for a top-scale upgrade. Three Keystone information technology students were hoping to find a meaningful, community-based project, which would provide significant practical experience they could note on their resumes and graduate school applications. The groups were able to merge their common missions and the result will be a new, attractive and functional school district website and a challenging project providing additional credentials that students Nathan Canfield, Scranton; Robert Norton,

Hop Bottom; and Steve Sidloski, Dickson City, were hoping to find. The project also demonstrates the students desire to use their talents to benefit the local community in a meaningful way. “This has been beneficial for everyone involved,” said Keystone assistant professor Stephen Cheskiewicz, who is overseeing the project. “I’m so glad the school district contacted us and I’m really pleased our students have the talent and dedication needed to complete the project.” Abington Heights Assistant Superintendent Thomas Quinn, Ph.D., said he’s looking forward to seeing the completed website later this spring. Once the site goes live, the school district will be responsible for updating it

with current information. “Members of our school board have been interested in updating the district website for some time,” Dr. Quinn said. “Board member Frank Santoriello recently contacted Keystone for assistance with the project and that’s proven to be a great idea. We’ve met with the Keystone group three times and we’ve really liked what we’ve seen so far. The final product will be a real improvement as we prepare for the 2011-2012 school year.” Nathan, a junior; Robert, a sophomore; and Steve, a junior, admit the project has taken up quite a bit of their time during the semester. They’ve spent hours developing the proper coding and other technical specifications,

as well as coming up with the best graphic design for the new site. “When you think about it, this is going to represent the school district to thousands of people, including students, parents, teachers and anyone else who views the website,” said Nathan. “The final product will not only benefit the school but will be reflection on us and something we can demonstrate to potential employers when we are looking

for jobs. That’s why we’re making sure we do a great job.” While the project is taking time and effort, the final result will be well worth it. “They’ve really worked hard,” said Professor Cheskiewicz. “When it’s finally finished, this will be an accomplishment the school district and the students will really be proud of for years to come.”

Student, school help Invisible Children ABINGTON JOURNAL/JIM GAVENUS

Right on the Money The Abington Community Library hosted a program titled “Right on the Money,” which explained financial matters to children in kindergarten through third grade. The Business Education Department of Abington Heights High School has coordinated student volunteers to facilitate sessions for Grades K 3 with Right on the Money, a Pennsylvania Office of Financial Education resource. Sessions will be held April 16, and 30 at 11 a.m. at the Library and will last approximately 40 minutes.

Lisa Imbriaco reads to students in an effort to teach them aboutmoney matters.

They are called Invisible Children because they are victims of one of the most neglected humanitarian emergencies in the world today: the war in northern Uganda. For the past 25 years, this conflict has left masses of Ugandan children and youth – nearly two million in all – caught between rival fighting factions. They are an entire generation who has never known peace. These helpless youth live in desperate privation. Many are abducted from their homes and forced to fight in the war. Most have lost parents, family members and friends. Living in dehumanizing conditions, they have been cut off from their communities and their farmlands and placed in overcrowded government war compounds called Internally Displaced Person (IDP) Camps. Abington Christian Academy student T.J. Arendt learned about the Invisible Children at a church retreat last fall. An advocacy movement established to bring aid to the children of Uganda, Invisible Children seeks to help end the conflict in

Uganda, to restore the next generation to their communities, rebuild schools, educate future Ugandan leaders and provide jobs in central Africa. The theme of the retreat that 13-year-old Arendt attended was Do Hard Things. “The leaders challenged us ‘little people’ to do big things,” Arendt said. When he became aware of the terrible conditions in the IDP Camps, Arendt could not turn away. That’s when Arendt set a goal of raising $1,000 for the Invisible Children. The first place he turned was to his fellow Abington Christian Academy students. With the school administration’s blessing, Arendt initiated Ugandan Lunch Day every Monday – a turkey sandwich, chips, a drink and a cookie – that may be purchased for $3. Academy administrators have also allowed Arendt to sponsor Dress Down Day, Crazy Hair Day and Crazy Hat Day, events in which students have to pay $2 for the privilege of participating. Right now, Arendt is more

than halfway toward raising his goal amount. He has also raised awareness about the Invisible Children by bringing Akello Barbra – a young woman who once lived in an IDP Camp – to visit academy students. The Invisible Children team was in town recently for an event at a local church, and Arendt’s family volunteered to act as hosts. During her visit, Akello Barbra told the story of how difficult life has been since her father died when she was 9. She also thanked the students for their compassion and their support. Arendt said that even after he meets his $1,000 goal, he would like to continue to do some “hard thing” to help the Invisible Children. “I’m doing this for God,” Arendt said. “Maybe I can’t go to Uganda and stop the war, but maybe I can keep a few people from suffering by raising some money to meet some of their needs.” Anyone who would like to contribute to Arendt’s Invisible Children fundraising goal may call Abington Christian Academy at 570.586.5270.

Trail among University engineering event participants Water wheels and cannons were used by area high school students to test their knowledge of physics April 7 at the Byron Recreation Complex at The University of Scranton. More than 100 area high school students were asked to use a water wheel and a complex series of other devices to launch an egg through a cannon as part of The University of Scranton annual Kane Competition. The event tests the physics knowledge of area students through a series of hands-on experiments. High Schools participating are: Carbondale Area, Forest City Regional, Lackawanna Trail, North Pocono, Scranton, West Scranton, Wayne Highlands, Scranton Prep and Wyoming Area. Its purpose is to encourage more students to pursue careers in physics and engineering. ABINGTON JOURNAL/ JASON RIEDMILLER

Second base key to Lady Comets’ offense BY ROB TOMKAVAGE Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMITAlexa Plevyak, 17, started playing T-ball about 10 years ago with a little encouragement from her dad, and has been involved with softball ever since. According to Abington Heights head coach John Kelly, Plevyak has been a critical member of the team since she first put on the uniform for the Lady Comets. “She played as a Alexa Plevyak freshman on the varsity, and has started since her sophomore year,” he said. “She has improved a lot and is one of the team leaders this year. She is much better defensively, and has always been a really good hitter.” Plevyak was a secondteam Division 1 all-star selection last season, and Kelly is counting on his experienced second basemen for quality production. “She is one of the girls we’re leaning on,” he said. “She is one of our offensive leaders and we’re expecting her, Katie (Peters) and Joetta (Hashem) to handle a lot of the offense this year.” The senior, who is a two-year captain, has stepped into a leadership role this season. “She has decent leadership skills,” Kelly said. “She leads by example and is one of our hard workers. She works on her game and has developed into a good player.” Although the Clarks Summit resident is a solid all-around player, Kelly thinks plate discipline is the best part of her game. “She is very patient at the plate,” he said. “She takes a lot of pitches, and See Lady Comets , Page 3

Caulking will cost an additional $7,200, and the remainder of repairs will take place within luxury suites, replacing ceiling tiles and the unclogging of seating bowl drains. Caulking repairs are typical, Tunis said. “Over the last 26 years, it’s something that even the previous administrations had been addressing since the stadium was built in 1986,” he said. Last year, the entire upper deck of the stadium was recaulked, and those

repairs have reportedly held up well. The planned removal of the upper deck and new construction of luxury sweets will “eliminate a significant maintenance issue,” Tunis said.

Lackawanna Trail senior looks to return to states

FACTORYVILLE- After placing in the state championship for two straight seasons in the 400 meter dash, a Lackawanna Trail High School track senior standout prepares to improve on the success of previous years. Lauren Ellsworth placed sixth her sophomore season and fourth in the state championship last year. The 400 is an event Ellsworth did not want to run in junior high. She gave a lot of credit to her junior high coach Bob McMinn, who now coaches at Abington Heights High School, for making her run the 400 when she first started. “I had a lot of success that year and he was right,” Ellsworth said. “I’m definitely more of a 400 runner. We still talk about it to this day.” Ellsworth lives with her parents

Ellsworth said. One of Ellsworth’s greatest qualities is her work ethic, according to Lackawanna Trail head coach Mark Johnson. “She’s the last one out of the weight room or practice every day,” Johnson said. “I’m more concerned about overtraining than anything else.” In preparation for the 2011 season, Ellsworth has been working out in the weight room, and she said she has already seen positive results in her weight training. “I’ve also done pool workouts PHOTO COURTESY ALICE STUFFLE After placing in the state championship for track for two years, Lauren Ellsworth, and other distance training to shown above, is optimistic at the start of her senior season at Lackawanna Trail. build up endurance,” Ellsworth said. “I’ll be getting into speed work soon.” Janet and Steve Ellsworth in Fac- third -straight season.

FACTORYVILLE- Krystal Wilbur, 18, has been called upon to be the leader of the Lady Lions’ pitching staff, replacing four-year starter Katie Ross. Although Wilbur will be the primary pitcher, Lackawanna Trail head coach John Brander also plans on having sophomore Brianna Smarkusky handle some of the pitching duties. Brander has been satisfied with Wilbur’s improvement since last season and thinks she is poised to flourish in her new role. “She has responded very well,” he said. “She is more focused this year, has more control of her pitches and has become a more mature player.” The senior has been elected as a team captain by her teammates this year, a testament to her work ethic and leadership. “It shows the respect the other girls have for her,” Brander said. “They see how hard she works, and they want to emulate it.” Brander thinks Wilbur has benefited from learning under a pitcher of Ross’ skill. “She was able to watch her pitch the past few years to know what it takes to be an elite pitcher,” he said. “She learned how to act on the mound by not getting too many emotions involved if she’s not getting the calls.” Wilbur got her start in T-ball, and cherishes the bond she has developed with her teammates. “I love pitching and being with the team,” she said. “I love my team.” The Nicholson resident credits repetition for her improved mechanics on the mound. “Throwing every day is the most important thing,” Wilbur said. “I’ve been throwing 100 pitches each day, and that has helped improve my speed and with hitting my targets.” See Pitcher, Page 2

Comet alums honored for academic, athletic success Senior David Gwyn (Clarks Summit/Abington Heights) and junior Spencer Liddic (Clarks Summit/ Abington Heights) helped the Muhlenberg College men’s basketball team finish in the thick of the Centennial Conference playoff hunt. They were both also named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll for their successes both on and off the court. To be named to the Academic Honor Roll, a student must be a sophomore or higher in class standing; a starter or key reserve on his team; and carry at least a 3.40 cumulative grade-point average. Liddic, a dual major in business administration and finance, capped a monster season by becoming the first Mule men’s basketball player in 30 years to be named to the Capital One Academic AllAmerica Men’s Basketball first team.

Dr. Matthew Grimaldi, Director of Athletics at Keystone College, has announced the hiring of Frank Carrozza as the college’s new women’s soccer coach. Carrozza takes over the program following the December departure of former head coach Chad Prince. “We are excited to welcome Frank to the program,” said Dr. Grimaldi. “He has a

great wealth of soccer experience that we know will be a great asset as we continue to build our program.” Carrozza, who spent the 2010 season as the head women’s soccer coach at King’s College, was a fouryear assistant with the Misericordia University women’s program prior to joining the Monarchs. A 2003 graduate of Miser-

icordia, he was a four-year starter with the Cougars, during which he helped the team to a 19-2 record and a NCAA Division III National Tournament berth in 2000. While an assistant coach at Misericordia, he helped guide the Cougars to a 2006 Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) crown and NCAA berth. Carrozza has received sev-

all-region honors after setting a new school record for points in a season with 509. He also became just the third player ever to lead the conference in both points per game (20.4) and rebounds per game(9.8). Liddic ranks 15th in school history in career points (1,221) and seventh in total blocks (94). His 712 rebounds are also good for 15th in conference history.

Residents review landfill benefits BY T’SHAIYA STEPHENSON tstephenson@theabingtonjournal.com

RANSOM TWP. - Several residents in attendance at the meeting of Ransom Township Supervisors April 4, asked questions about Alliance Landfill, 398 South Keyser Ave., Taylor, which is partially located in the township. The landfill is operated by Waste Management. Residents Robert Ketz and William “Bud” Brown, who is also a host inspector for the landfill for Ransom Township, were two residents who spoke out on the topic. The landfill, which is also partly located in Old Forge and Taylor, currently gives Ransom Township $.67 per paid ton brought into the landfill, according to John Hambrose, Community Relations Coordinator for the Landfill. Ketz questioned why Ransom Twp. receives only $.67 per paid ton, while Taylor receives more. Hambrose explained that Ransom Township

receives benefits on top of the money per ton. According to Hambrose, Old Forge currently receives a $270,000 payment and $1.20 per paid ton through the agreement that was recently approved, and Taylor Borough receives $1.90 per paid ton, which will increase to $2 per ton and $2.08 per ton. They also receive free weekly waste pickup. Though the main building is located in Taylor, Brown said that there is still garbage on Ransom’s side of the landfill and the township should receive benefits. In approximately four to six weeks, the Landfill will begin construction on Area 2A, an expansion area that will be 87 acres when completed. Hambrose said in a phone interview April 5, that the construction will include excavation, moving of earth and relocating facilities. He said in the interview that once disposal begins in the

expansion area, the price per ton Ransom receives will be raised to $1.20. At the mark of the one- year anniversary of the first raise, they will receive $1.30 per ton. The second year anniversary will raise the per ton amount to $1.40. After the third year anniversary, it will be raised to $1.50 per ton and the fourth year anniversary it will cap out at $1.65. Every year, the Landfill will provide Ransom Township with $25,000 to help offset the cost of the police patrols. South Abington Police currently patrol the township. Alliance Landfill will also give $13,000 for the fire company and a one -time fee of $400,000 toward a senior or civic center in Ransom Township. Residents also receive free weekly garbage pickup and a free spring and fall clean-up. Ransom Township currently receives a yearly minimum payment of $350,000 a year. Hambrose said once they begin disposing waste in Area 2A, $520,000 will become the new

annual minimum. Ransom Township Chairman Joe Esposito said that the landfill has been generous to the township outside of those benefits. “They practically funded all of the parks that we have, the paving. I think it was the remodeling up at Mount Dewey too. ” “We’re always happy to see what we can do,” said Hambrose. Also at the meeting, resident Bill Auriemma made a suggestion that the budget breakdown attached to each agenda at the supervisors meeting should have an explanation next to it. “‘John Seamans, engineer.’ Would that be hard to put?” Supervisor David Bird said they could do that. Resident Lenay Blackwell asked about a $300 expenditure for Northern Tree Expert that was listed. Bird said it referred to trees on Bald Mountain Road. Blackwell asked why they were taken down on private property, but paid for by

Gow, Clinton Twp., is currently the zoning officer for the township. Supervisors agreed that any position that becomes available in the township will be posted inside the township office, 2435 Hickory Lane, Clarks Summit. Bird said he wants to start a newsletter for the township and would also like to visit residents in the township. “I’m going to go out to the people, our residents. I’m going to reach out to our residents. I’m going to go house to house. ” During the meeting, Bird, road master, said a lot of work will be done on the roads especially due to the amount of wateron the roads. “If we don’t take care of water… we’re wasting our money on the roads.” Ransom Township Supervisors will meet May 2, at 7 p.m. at the township building. May 2 will also be a township cleanup. Bags are available at the township building.

Continued from Page 1 “Kevin’s a sophomore and he stepped up big today. We got guys that are kind of new to the pitching game this year. They have some JV experience but they really haven’t thrown a lot in the varsity game, and they’re starting to step up, and I’m really proud of them for that.” This is the first conference win of the season for Abington Heights, putting them at 1-3 overall, after falling 5-4 to Delaware Valley April 4, and 11-6 to West Scranton April 8. “I think it’s a big confidence booster,” Zawelski said of the win. “North Pocono, we know they have a great ball team, and to come out and be able to put up a bunch of runs very early on, against a very good pitcher, I mean last year we went to their place and Billy Nelson kind of shut us down pretty easily. I think it’s a huge confidence boost for the hitters, and the fielders.” “We made some good defensive plays today, kept their rallies to a minimum and that was great for us.” The Comets will try to carry the momentum from this win into their next game against Scranton, at Scranton High School April 14 at 4:30 p.m.

the township. Bird said they were going to fall into the road so they were taken down; he said they were in the township’s right of way. Bird said branches kept falling into the roadway; he said it was a safety issue. “I don’t think it’s right, they’re on private property,” Blackwell said after the meeting. At the start of the meeting, Ransom Township Chairman Joe Esposito announced that copies made at the township will be $.25 per page. The comment stemmed from the March 7 meeting of Ransom Township supervisors where Auriemma asked why residents had to pay for copies. “For copies we have decided to follow the state laws and copies will remain $. 25 each,” Esposito said. Auriemma also questioned the supervisors as to why they felt the need to hire someone outside of the township for the zoning officer position. Russell

She is very skilled offensively.” Plevyak credited Kelly’s coaching style for her development into an allstar caliber player. “He always provides good instruction, and is always there for questions,” she said. “It’s im-

James J. Culleton, of McKenney, Va., died Friday, April 8, at his home, Reedy Creek Farm. He was born May 19, 1943, in Brooklyn, N.Y., and was the son of the late James John and Catherine Gallagher Culleton. Jim was a retired school administrator for the New York City Public School System. He moved to Dalton in 1986 and was the owner of Bailey Hollow Farm from 1986 until 2000. While living in Dalton, he was the master of fox hounds for the Abington Hills Hunt and was a member of Our Lady of the Abington’s Church. In 1999, he moved to Reedy Creek Farm in McKenney and

has since been the master of fox hounds for Reedy Creek Hounds. Jim was also serving as vice president of the National Beagle Club. The funeral will be Wednesday, April 13, with Mass at 10 a.m. in Our Lady of the Abington’s Church, 700 W. Main St., Dalton, to be celebrated by the Rev. Edward L. Michelini, pastor.

seemed to mesh real well. We’ll see what happens as the season progresses, but if we continue to play like we did, I think we will have a successful season.” Plevyak tallied four more hits and three RBI’s in Abington Heights 15-12 win over West Scranton on April 9. After losing to Dallas the past three seasons in the district playoffs, the veterans are poised to get over that hurdle.

“We really want to win now,” Plevyak said. “Coming from the senior standpoint it’s our last year, maybe the last time playing softball forever.” Alexa, the daughter of Gayle and Steve Plevyak, is leaning toward attending Misericordia University to study physical therapy. She was also a forward on the Lady Comets’ soccer team this past fall.
