NEWTON TWP. - Cars lined Newton Ransom Boulevard road Monday evening, April 11, when more than 80 people attended the Newton Township Board of Supervisors meeting which began with a special session to discuss the first ordinance of 2011, regarding weight restrictions on roads within the township. According to Township Solicitor John Sileo, “Supervisors will take public influence tonight and consider a possible vote on an ordinance, the first ordinance of 2011, that basically establishes weight restrictions on various roads within the township and provide penalties for violations of that and enforcement provisions.” Sileo opened the meeting to public comment, which continued for 1.5 hours. Keith Eckel, a fourth generation farmer from Falls Road, expressed concern about a section of the ordinance which addressed the exemption of agricultural machinery. “If I read it correctly, the township has the ability to determine within seven days that one of my implements or one

Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines – flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash – both pose potential safety and health hazards. Remove unwanted, expired or unused prescription drugs from homes, workplaces, and care facilities by surrendering these items to law enforcement officers for destruction.

Parenthood, Abington Style with Adriane Heine

A mother she didn’t have to be

I met Joanne in the fall of 1998. I was newly married and she was my father-in-law’s new girlfriend. My father-in-law was recently divorced from my husband’s beloved mother after 35 years of marriage. Joanne was16 years his junior and his subordinate at work – both potential red flags – but from the moment we saw her warm smile, we were hooked. It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. She was lovely to look at, totally engaged and interested in everything we and our children had to say. Family gatherings with Joanne came to mean hours of lively conversation. It wasn’t long before they made it official and she took the title of stepmother, mother-inlaw and, more importantly, grandma to our kids. When we had our first child, she left work and came straight to the hospital, being one of the first in the family to hold our baby Dani. When we had our second, I asked her to come and stay with us to take care of19-month-old Dani while Doug and I spent time at the hospital with the new baby. She was someone we could depend on, who would take time off from work for such an occasion, and was one of the only people we trusted totally with our babies. She told me she was honored to have the opportunity to bond with Dani . A year later, when Doug and I thought Lauren was too young for the cruise planned with my side of the family, it was Joanne who stepped to the plate. She took a week’s vacation from work and took Lauren on a road trip, visiting her college-aged kids in Virginia. She was never one to just watch the kids. When we visited she planned adventures . “Why don’t you take the day

to yourself?” she’d say to me, “You deserve a break.” Then they’d be off, Joanne and my girls. One such day, I wondered how she had the energy as afternoon turned to dusk and she was still gallivanting around with the two toddlers. She took them to The Largest General Store in the World, then the zoo, several yard sales and climbing in the tunnels at McDonald’s. When she and my father-inlaw visited us, the girls were glued her side, often emerging from the guestroom, the three of them all done up in Grandma’s curlers. We had the pleasure of spending several vacations together, hiking in the Olympic Mountains, digging for clams on Whidbey Island and swapping stories over glasses of Riesling as the sun set. On a boat ride, she’d be the one who would grab the children in her warm, loving embrace, pointing out all the wonders to see, from dolphins to eagles, snowcapped mountains to quaint fishing cottages We frequently spoke on the phone to coordinate our schedules and those of our husbands. It was at the end of one of those long, intimate conversations that she said “love you” instead of goodbye. I hung up the phone and thought, “Well, I’m glad one of us finally had the guts to put words to it.” That Mother’s Day was the first time I sent greetings to someone other than my or my husband’s biological mothers or grandmothers. Even though she had become more of a dear friend and loving older sister to me than a mother figure, I wanted to honor her for the mother and grandma I had the joy of having in my life. That, plus she embodied all the good things that “Grandma,” the

word she had asked our kids to use for her, had ever meant. We lost Joanne unexpectedly during a battle with the disease Scleroderma in 2009. She had just turned 57. All of us, especially my father-in-law, her siblings and her children, are still trying to accept the loss. After her memorial service, I found and copied her favorite recipes, or rather, our favorites that she’d made for us so many times. Every holiday and family gathering since, I purchase the ingredients and the kids and I prepare the dishes. I know I don’t have nearly the same way of doing this; she patiently and joyfully allowed the kids to measure, add and stir each ingredient. Still, it brings us all comfort to keep her present. “Now, the secret ingredient here is the vanilla, Mom,” Lauren will tell me each time we make Grandma’s famous French toast. I smile to myself because I know these words were not originally Lauren’s; she learned them well. “Hurry up, everyone!” I call to the extended family gathered around watching football on Thanksgiving. I’m putting out Joanne’s favorite appetizer, an amazing mixture of lump crab meat, cream cheese and cocktail sauce. If I don’t warn the crowd that it’s coming, some of the larger men and boys, like my husband, will invariably devour it within minutes. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few vivid dreams of Joanne since her passing, one coming last May. I explained the dream to my mother the next day. “Mom, she looked as healthy and radiant as the day I met her. She was across the room and she took a moment to look up and smile and nod to acknowledge that she saw me. I got the feeling she was busy, in the middle of things, and that we’d connect later... It was no big deal really, nothing of significance really.” “Adriane, this dream was last night?” She paused. “On Mother’s Day. Sounds like you got an unexpected gift this year.”

BY KELLY LEIGHTON Abington Journal Correspondent

ABINGTONS- As spring arrives, it is important to make sure one’s car is prepared for the season change. Several local businesses offered tips on how to make sure a vehicle is in the best shape. Jason Cook, owner of Toyo Tech Auto Sales and Service, Taylor, said, “Right now, it is crucial to check your tires. Checking the air is the single most important thing you can do. The winter air makes the tire pressure go down and fixing this will mean better gas mileage. Also, check under your hood for leaves or debris that may have gotten stuck in there.” He added, “Pay attention to things that are out of the ordinary. Small issues often develop into major problems, which will end up being more costly than the original problem.” Jon Dore, the commercial accounts manager at Kost Tire and Auto, Clarks Summit, had several suggestions. “After heavy winter, we recommend a 20-point check here at Kost. This includes focusing on air pressure, tires and a basic lookover.” Dore added that if anyone comes in for an oil change in between seasons, he advised the whole car get checked for safety reasons. Additionally, Monroe Muffler and Brake Service manager Rob Convery, in Clarks Sum-

mit, agreed that an overall checkup is wise. He recommended regular maintenance, such as checking the oil and air conditioning, as well as examining the belt and tires. Jeff Manning, manager at Summit Auto Spa, Clarks Summit said a “good cleaning” is necessary. “It’s important to make sure all the salt is off. Also, a nice coat of wax to prepare your car for the sun in the spring and summer is good. Over time, the sun can cause the paint to fade … and change colors.” One other important tip is to always have a road trip emergency kit. Dore said that flares, jumper cables, reflector signs, a spare tire and a blanket during winter months are necessary. Convery agreed with the flares, adding that it’s important to have them in case an emergency happens at night. Convery also suggested always having a cell phone available in case an incident occurs. Cook concurred with the cell phone suggestion. He added

that it may be wise to have something to protect one’s self depending on where one may break down. Additionally, Cook mentioned that it’s important to have food in the event of being stranded for some time. He recommended checking the spare tire for air as well. “A Triple A membership is always helpful,” he added. Manning added that bottled water is also a necessity.

SCOTT TWP. - Leadership Lackawanna is working with the northeast region of Buy Fresh Buy Local to promote locally grown and locally made food by hosting a wine and cheese event April 30, from 1 to 6 p.m. The event will be held at Maiolatesi Winery, 210 Green Grove Rd., Scott Township. “It’s more of a wine and local food event rather than wine and cheese,” said Mike Walsh, one of the current members of Leadership Lackawanna. The event will consist of sampling a variety of tasty Maiolatesi wines and sampling fresh, local foods. All proceeds will benefit the northeast region chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local. Walsh is one of the seven team members helping assemble the event. He has been with Leadership Lackawanna since this past September.

There will be prizes for those who walk the most laps and for those with the most sponsors. Healthy snacks, including water and oranges, will be provided at the Newton Recreation Center. The Walkathon is all part of the theme “On the Move,” which means being on the move to spread the gospel. It also emphasizes on being both physically and spiritually fit. The registration fees are $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and younger. For families of four or more, $2 per person will be deducted. The proceeds will benefit ministries around the world. They will also benefit AIDS prevention, community centers, women’s ministries, art/music centers, English as a Second Language centers, media outreach, new ministry development teams, food and medical support and more. The walkathon is for men, women and children, young and old. “We’re hoping for a good turnout,” said Joyce Degilio, “to enjoy the outdoors and have fellowship with people.” The walkathon will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Country Alliance Church also helps and supports the Scranton Rescue Mission for people in need with its distribution of non-perishable items and clothing.

time I’m going to be performing in front of this many people.” After the 30-minute program, third grade students were invited to ask questions and get a closer look at the harps. Thornton said, “I have to be ready for whatever they ask. It takes a lot to prepare.” Thornton started playing the harp in February 2010. She became interested prior to that after hearing the harp played at Clarks Green United Methodist Church, where she attends services. Her dad suggested she play the piano, so she started there, taking lessons with Barbara Dexter, who is harpist at the church. After excelling at the piano, Thornton started playing the harp as well. At age 9, she is one of the youngest students Dexter taught. While Thornton has not played the piano recently, she plans on it, because she really likes both instruments. Thornton’s music teacher, Beth Shaw, said, “I remember when Alex was in first grade she came to me and asked if she could play the harp. We don’t carry them in our school, though, because we have a procession of instruments throughout the grades.” Shaw explained that in the Abington Heights School District, students in grades kindergarten through two play classroom instruments. In third grade they move to the recorder, and in fourth the violin. Then when advance to the middle school they can choose their instruments. “Music class isn’t just singing anymore, we teach the kids instruments. Abington area has a history of supporting music programs, and it really shows in the students. We like to start them early, and it helps that we have such supportive parents in the district. Music ties

into every aspect of life,” explained Shaw. Thornton had to acquire her own harp to play, so in second grade she did. “Once I finally got a harp in my house everyone who walked by would play with the strings - my dad, my sisters, they just loved to touch it,” said Thornton with a laugh. “Alex is a very good harpist. She’s interested in every aspect of music. She is an all -around great music student,” said Shaw. “Abington area values the arts and music. The children really benefit from it.” Shortly after Thornton started playing, she began working with the group Serenity, through a connection made by Dexter. Eight women and one young man comprise the group of one cellist, one violinist and the rest harpists. Thornton is the youngest in the group which plays together every Tuesday at a local nursing home. Thornton also performs on the harp at her church with a violinist. “The harp helps heal people because of its soothing sound and vibrations. My teacher plays for sick people,” Thornton said. “I play for my grandmother who has a brain tumor, and she says it makes her feel better.” Thornton plays the Irish Folk Harp, a 34-string harp which is about four feet tall and weighs 20 pounds. Despite the harp being about as tall as Thornton, she still manages to carry it. There are many different types and sizes of harps: 24- string harps, 34- string harps, and 47 -string harps. When asked the most difficult part about playing the harp, Thornton explained, “Remembering all the strings is pretty hard at first. It takes a lot of work. Harpists should practice two times a day for at least 15 minutes.” Thornton said that despite all the hard work, she wants to continue playing through middle school and high school.

Musical achievement BY SHAUNA MCNALLY Abington Journal Reporter

CLARKS SUMMIT - Abington Heights School District introduces children to musical instruments as early as kindergarten. Apparently it pays off, because this year 12 students from the band, 14 students from the chorus and 32 students from the orchestra achieved district status. “Music is the universal language,” said Ryan Kresge, sophomore orchestra member. “I was talking to a conductor, and she mentioned that she toured in Russia, and hardly anyone spoke English, so they communicated strictly through music.” After district competition, students may qualify for regionals. Twenty-two students from Abington Heights did just that. From there they may head to state competition. One band student, percussionist Mark Murphy, accomplished that feat. State competition took place April 13 to 16 in Hershey. Murphy placed second in the wind ensemble. Alex Semidei, senior band member, said, “District Band is a great experience. The people you meet there will be your friends for years to come. At districts, you are surrounded by musicians who truly care about making music, which is a different experience from high school band. Districts is a

great experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life, and my only regret was not auditioning sooner.” Kate McAndrew, senior orchestra member who has been playing the cello since fourth grade, said that at pre-auditions they were given music to learn and then were tested on it. They were then placed for a performance by how well they learned the music. All the district students practiced and learned the music over three days and then they performed it. McAndrew said, “It’s a really intense three days, a lot to take in. The instructors give you a new appreciation for music. They make you really feel it.” McAndrew said she wanted everyone to know how important it is to appreciate how hard all the students work. Helping the students through all of this are their instructors and directors at Abington Heights: Cheryl Mozdian, band; Susan Kelly, chorus and Allison Covell, orchestra. Students who achieved Districts, Regionals and State competition levels are listed.

Griffin Pond advises on Easter pets

Insalacos receive award

The Little Sisters of the Poor at Holy Family Residence, Scranton, and the Holy Family Awards committee recently met to plan the third Holy Family Awards Brunch, which will take place May 1, at 11 a.m. at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Scranton. At the lunch, the Sisters will honor Michael and Dolores Insalaco, Moosic. The Insalacos are long-time supporters of many charities in the Lackawanna County area and are especially kind to the Little Sisters of the Poor. Seated are committee members Mary Lou Burne, publicity; Sister Maureen, Mother Superior; and Marianne Ferrario, publicity. Standing: Peter Kanton, program sponsor; Jackie Galvin, Holy Family Residence’s development director; Janet Skibinski, invitations; Mary Ellen Madden, raffle; Faith Foley, arrangements; Sr. Marie Therese, donations; Alexandra Yantorn, program sponsors; and Sr. Cornelia, Absent from photo are Barbara Scacchitti, decorations; Joyce Tressler and Mary Jane Sheridan, invitations; and Judy Cosgrove, Theresa Osborne and Theresa Durkin, reservations. To make a reservation, please call Judy Cosgrove at 570.344.5106 or 570.947.5560.

Those cute little bunnies, chicks and ducks members of the public might be thinking of buying for Easter gifts can mean trouble for a variety of reasons, according to the Bev Bright at the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. They carry diseases. “Salmonella is a real danger to your child,” according to Bright. They are frail and can be easily injured or killed by children too young to know better. They require a special diet and carefully controlled temperatures. They grow up. “Prevent cruelty to baby animals. Buy a stuffed animal toy for your special child this Easter,” according to the Bright. For more information, call the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter at 570.585.0516.

My name is ... Isis

Name: Isis. Breed: Female, spayed, brown and black tabby cat. About me: It’s best if I’m the only pet in the house. I’m very affectionate, quiet and friendly. Cost: $ 50.

Kairis and his wife, Gerri are owners of HOM Personal Interiors, spending their time in New York, Waverly and seasonally in Florida. Their portfolio includes a variety of projects including offices and private residences. Kairis has made appearances on HGTV shows such as “Genevieve Gorder with Dear Genevieve” and “Battle on the Block” and conducts speaking engagements at home shows, antique shows and trade shows. “Like most clients, Niki knew what she wanted but she couldn’t just quite do it herself or even quite describe it.

Salerno was looking for a soft but glamorous décor in her home, so Kairis and his team focused on adding accessories while utilizing the existing wall paint colors and furniture.

Who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for the movie "Rabbit Hole"

Only two more days of festival remain and there are still so many films that I want to see. Luckily, Hildy and Jeffrey plan each festival with four movies showing per day on the last two days of festival, which is great for playing catch up on movies that you didn’t get to see. My favorite film of the festival so far has been “The Legend of Pale Male.” I was definitely surprised that a documentary about a red-tailed hawk that resides on a building in Manhattan could be so gripping. It was powerful to see one hawk’s effect on New York City and its residents. You’ve got to check it out. These past two weeks have definitely been a spectacular time for foreign, independent and art films. We received many calls from moviegoers who were impressed with the caliber of films that were booked. I can’t wait to see what Hildy and Jeffrey have up their sleeves for the fall festival. Oh, and I can’t talk about how great film festival was without thanking all of the Dietrich’s staff and volunteers who made it possible. I especially would like to thank our hardworking projectionists who tirelessly put up all of the films for our viewing pleasure. While April has been a great month for film at the Dietrich, May is going to be a fantastic time to take a class at the theater, especially if you are a teen or adult. We have something for everyone: pottery and sculpture, jewelry making, basketry, photography, Tunisian crochet and Spanish. In Steve Colley’s pottery and sculpture classes, students can learn hand-building (i.e., coil and slab construction) and sculpting techniques and work with clay on potter’s wheels. What is so great about these workshops is that no experience is required and all materials are provided. Classes are held on Mondays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and admission is $60 for four sessions. The Dietrich’s own Esther Harmatz will also be teaching a couple of jewelry-making classes in May. These classes are one-shot deals. You meet for three hours and leave with completed jewelry pieces. You can’t beat that. As someone who has recently been bitten by the jewelry-making bug, I plan on taking Jewelry Making: Easy Attachments. In this class, we will have fun learning about different types of jewelry attachments and easy wire-wrapping techniques. We See Movies, Page 13

Kairis described the living room as elegant. “It (the living room) is more of a walk-by room and since they don’t do that much entertaining, we took liberties using a mirrored table. The chairs are from New York. Niki was a very smart client. We reviewed her psycho deco (a list of 100 questions Kairis’clients must answer) and magazine pics and books. We put the images together and I showed her a conceptual...Which got us to this point of knowing she wants that ‘vavavavoom.’ I would call these two rooms – the living and dining roomsalmost Hollywood regency.” All of the curtains in the house were custom made to match the room. The living and dining rooms were dotted with accessories using subtle touches of metallic in accent pieces such as vases, small mirrored martini tables, four tall mirrors woven with a bronze “El Morocco” detail hung over the sofa. Kairis incorporated additional shine detail to the decor by making sure the host and hostess dining chairs and new lounge chairs in the living room had shiny nail head trim and by adding gold channel quilted leather throw pillows. The TV room, which Kairis also refers to as the “screening room,” also has a Hollywood feel. The room was accented with all original commissioned art works in bronze, silver and colors with the added texture of rice paper to create a true gallery/screening room effect. Three new ottomans were added to the room and oversized baskets act as a catchall for magazines, catalogs and dog toys. A few months have passed since Kairis completed their project. Salerno said, “I think that everything came out great. Now my home isn’t so cold...it feels like someone lives here now....and I can’t wait to come home every day.” For more information regarding HOM Personal Interiors, call 800.835.8299 or email paul@hominteriors.com.

An exorcist plagued by his own demons BY RAFAEL PIMENTEL Abington Journal Correspondent

“The All-American guy.” That is how actor Bob Hughes of Clarks Summit chooses to remember and represent his high school friend and famed actor/ playwright Jason Miller. Hughes portrays Miller in the one-man show “Go Irish: The Purgatory Diaries of Jason Miller.” The play, written by Tom Flannery and Rodger Jacobs, is a celebration of Miller’s life and cautions against vices that can ruin any human. Hughes is taking the show to the theater at Theater Joria Productions in New York City April 29 to 30 and May 6 to 7 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20, plus fees, and are available for purchase online at BrownPaperTickets.com, by phone at 1.800.838.3006, or at the door of Joria Productions at 260 W. 36th Street, 3rd Floor, New York City, N.Y. 10018. Hughes describes himself as “a man on a mission.” “I had the chance to act as my high school friend. That kind of thing, you have to run with it. I kept saying I want to get it to New York, and here we are. I want to get it there in the fall too, if it’s successful that is. I’ll never be satisfied until we keep moving it forward.” Hughes has performed the one-man show at the Philadelphia Fringe, Shawnee Playhouse, Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, Sacred Heart in Camden, South Camden Theater, Scranton Cultural Center and Actor’s Circle in Scranton. Hughes said there is no mistake that the play is in New York City at the same time as “That Championship Season.” “Maybe this play could be

the companion piece to ‘Championship Season.’ I knew it would be in New York around the same time, hoping that buzz will get people to come see it.” Hughes’ acting in the play has received some positive feedback in theater publications, ranging from commentary on his striking resemblance to Miller to his ability to capture the pain of the subject matter. The play is a gratifying experience for Hughes, who was one year Miller’s junior in high school. “It’s a tremendous journey. As an artist, you’re always preparing for your next performance. It’s a reward for remaining committed to the work. I’m glad I kept the balance that Miller could not. He achieved a lot, but he could’ve achieved so much more.” Miller is best known as Pulitzer -winning playwright of “That Championship Season” and for his acting role as Father Karras in 1973’s “The Exorcist,” but Hughes said Miller’s potential was even greater. “He had so much going for him. He had the potential to be the new Arthur Miller or Tennessee Williams. He was making money as an actor and a writer. Hollywood thought he was a two-headed freak. He was like a new Humphrey Bogart.” Hughes says that Miller even had a chance for a come back with a play on which he was working. “Near the end, Miller wanted a comeback play with Paul Sorvino as Jackie Gleason…. It would’ve put him back on Broadway.” Despite the potential, the celebrity got the best of Miller, as portrayed by Hughes in Act Two of “Go Irish.” Hughes described Miller as a predecessor to Charlie Sheen or Tiger

Woods. “Sheen and Woods, those guys were on top, but like any human, celebrity got the best of them, and it happened to Jason.” Acting through the pain of a fallen man is a tough role for Hughes, but he credited his directors and Miller for his success. “I’d like to recognize and honor my first director, Ellen Langan, and her son Jim Langan for their support at Electric Theater Company and Suzanne Ford, my current director, who has been pulling me through rehearsal to get through the play.” He added, “Miller’s son describes his dad as having effervescent zeal. We were linebackers in high school, high energy, explosive. Miller did not want pity. He never felt sorry for himself. The play is one of regret and what could’ve been, but it’s not all doom and gloom. I try to play it off as humor. Do you cry or laugh at such moments? There’s a double irony in dealing with the pain and trying to make light of it. ”

FACTORYVILLE- Actor Ravi Roth came back to Lackawanna Trail High School as a guest speaker to offer career and life advice to aspiring students at the Student Council District 9 Conference. He encouraged them to believe in themselves and discover what they want to achieve in life. “I talked to the kids about how they can really go after their dreams and what they want in life,” Roth said. “I told them if they have a dream and create a vision for themselves, then anything is possible.” He also advised students to craft their own style and personality traits. “You need to come up with a theme for your life and stick to that theme.

Once they get the necessary tools to do that that, they’re all going to be rock stars in their own way.” Roth just shot a pilot called “Perks: The perks of writing a musical based on the perks of a wallflower.”

Leading by example

BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT - The Abington Heights High School volleyball team is off to a strong start, beginning the season with a 5-2 overall record. One of the differencemakers so far this season has been senior Andy McLane. “He does a good job,” said assistant coach Greg Monetta. “He Andy McLane definitely leads by example.” A four-year member of the varsity team, McLane does this by offering hard work, and whatever the team needs him to do. This year that meant switching from middle hitter, the position he played most of last year, to outside hitter. “He’s primarily our main offensive player,” said Monetta. “Generally your most consistent hitter is generally on the outside. That’s why it’s called the outlet, because it’s the easiest position to set.” McLane got some playing time at the position last year, and Monetta said he did so well the coaching staff decided to start him there this year, moving Jake Roba to middle. While McLane did have some experience playing the position, he said there are still some things that took getting used to. “When I played middle, I only played front row, and now that I moved to outside, I play all the way around, and I’m also serving. So, there’s a little more responsibility,” said McLane. “Overall, I think I’m doing pretty well.” McLane’s sentiments were echoed by Monetta, who said so far the coaching staff is pleased

Lackawanna Trail pitching holds Meteors in check

FACTORYVILLE- Lackawanna Trail rode the strong pitching of Pete Murazzi and some timely hitting to pick up a 7-1 win over Montrose on April 18. Murazzi walked three batters in the first inning, but was able to get Montrose’s Matt Hohn to pop out with runners on second and third base to end the threat. Trail capitalized on the momentum by striking for two runs in the bottom of the inning to take an early lead. Tanner Holmes advanced to third base after a throwing error and scored on a wild pitch. Mason Mecke then doubled home Ben Lehman for the second run of the game. “Mason’s been hitting the ball very good for us,” Lackawanna Trail head coach Todd Peters

Bridgette Robinson has been named a captain on the Oneonta State field hockey team. Robinson, an Abington Heights High School graduate who is completing her sophomore year at the New York State school, was informed of her selection at the end of the spring practice session and was in that role for the spring scrimmages. She will serve as captain in the fall, along with senior Jacqueline Camp and junior Kaitlin Bushnell. In 2010, Robinson made the transition from midfielder to defender. She started every game there and ranked second on the team in minutes played and defensive saves while helping the Red Dragons go 12-8 for their best finish since 2004.

Junior pitcher looks to lead Chiefs BY JOE BARESS Abington Journal Correspondent

Junior pitcher and shortstop Eric Grabowski leads the Lakeland High School Chiefs into the 2011 season after establishing himself as the team’s top player his sophomore year. Grabowski led the Chiefs in batting average, hits, runs scored, runs batted in, doubles and triples his sophomore season.

Grabowski, who lives with his parents Joan and Harry Grabowski, said he loves playing baseball, and loved it since he began playing it. “I started playing baseball when I was real little and it was my favorite sport to play,” Grabowski said. “I got better as the years went on.” Earlier in Grabowski’s career he pitched the game

of his life. “A couple years back in my AAU game I threw a perfect game,” Grabowski said. “That’s probably the best game I ever pitched.” Grabowski has a lot of time left in his career to match that perfect game, and hopefully he’ll be able to do it for the Chiefs next time, a team he says he loves playing for, and is hoping will finish the sea-

Grabowski also wants to improve his game and continue his baseball career after high school. “I hope I keep getting better every year and hope it stays that way,” Grabowski said. I’m hoping to play

college baseball somewhere and further my career in baseball.” After losing their f irst four games of the season, Lakeland is still looking for its f irst win of the season. The Chiefs will try to get their f irst win against Dunmore High School at 4:30 p.m. April 20 at Dunmore.

The National Christian College Athletic Association is pleased to announce the Class of 2011 inductees for the NCCAA Hall of Fame. Delyte Morris, Cedarville University, Marsha Jackson, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, and Keith Champion, Clearwater Christian College, are the three individuals who will join current membership of 43 other outstanding servants. Marsha Jackson served as the Head Women’s Volleyball Coach at Maranatha Baptist Bible College from 1989-2006.

During her career, she led the Crusaders to NCCAA Division II Women’s Volleyball Championship titles in 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1994. The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place during the 2011 NCCAA Annual Convention June 3, 7 p.m. during the Hall of Fame Banquet. The convention is being held at the St. Louis Hilton Airport, St. Louis, MO. Ticket and convention information can be found online at http://www.thenccaa.org/ annualconvention.html.

Osterhout had to practice the skills at that level all year, master them and compete on them. Her uneven bars squaton was the most challenging for her. That is a move where the gymnast swings up onto the lower bar, stands up on it and reaches for the higher bar, leaps to it, grabs it and continues her routine there; all with pointed toes and extended legs. Osterhout is excited to learn Level 6 skills now, in preparation for the next competitive season. Her favorite so far is the back walk-over on the balance beam. Osterhout sacrifices things like play dates and sleepovers during the competitive season, but she doesn’t mind. “It’s worth it,” she said. Osterhout will train 16 to 18 hours a week over the summer and spend a week at the International Gymnastics Camp in Stroudsburg. It is a sleep -away camp where athletes get the opportunity to work with world-class coaches. Last year, Osterhout had the pleasure of meeting her idol there, Olympic Gold Medalist Sean Johnson.

THE ABINGTON JOURNAL♦CLARKS SUMMIT, PA

Clarks Green holds off on Act 537 submission BY EMILY CULLEY Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS GREEN- This month’s April 11 meeting of the Clarks Green Borough Council addressed the borough’s involvement with the Abington Regional Wastewater Authority, upcoming community events and a database for tracking earned income tax monies. During the visitor comment time, John Earley from the planning commission expressed his belief the the Wastewater Authority should bid out the various projects to be done and that the Clarks Green council should rescind the vote it made last month to consider the Wastewater Authority’s Draft Regional Act 537. He said that South Abington Township Board of Supervisors voted not to send draft to its planning commission, and the draft cannot move ahead until South Abington Twp. approves. And in light of that, he said Clarks Green council should not vote until its members know how South Abington Twp. plans to proceed. The issue was voted on later in the meeting. Council President Marie King was in favor of extending the review period of Act 537 and explained that the Act was never voted on; only submitting it for review by the planning commission and the public was voted on. Councilwoman Jill Shanrock said, “I think the purpose of rescinding is purely symbolic.” She also added that such a move would show

that the council believes that the Wastewater Authority should have “greater transparency in its bidding.” Councilwoman Melissa Jones agreed and it was voted, four to three, with one member abstaining, that Clarks Green would not submit Act 537 to the planning commission or to the public until South Abington Twp. votes to do so. It was unanimously voted that the Clarks Green council agrees with South Abington Twp. board of supervisors that the Wastewater Authority should put all of its projects out for bid. Lee Jamison from Newton Twp. spoke about the possibility of creating a database for each municipality to track earned income tax monies to insure they are properly distributed. He first presented his idea to the Abington Council Of Governments and, after receiving information from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, has spoken to other councils about implementing the database. Clarks Green council agreed that it was worth researching and thanked him for his efforts. Council also mentioned several events coming up in Clarks Green, such as the pond at the Abington Area Community Park being stocked with trout for the beginning of the season and the Shade Tree Committee partnering with others for an Arbor Day celebration at the park April 30.

Architect denotes location for Waverly Twp. pavilion BY BRITTNEY PIERCE Abington Journal Correspondent

WAVERLY TWP. - The agenda for the Waverly Township Supervisors meeting was brief April 11. The new addressing system still poses a problem with the state systems. After conference calls with Solicitor Atty. Andrew Hailstone and letters between the township and Harrisburg, no progress has been made. The supervisors plan to appeal to a local member of Congress about the case since they feel it is a serious issue for emergency response vehicles. The township supervisors also plan to investigate their rights. Township Manager Bill White said he believes that there are not enough people at work on this in Harris-

burg to keep up with the changes. In old business, a landscape architect visited the township and has marked, with flags, where the pavilion will be built. The supervisors were to receiving an engineered drawing later in the week. With the coming of spring, paving projects will soon be underway. The roads that will receive the most attention are Stevenson Road, Puritan Road, Upland Terrace, Oakford Road and Beech Street, according to the supervisors. Public Works Director Thomas James will have staff out to inspect the roads and will begin accepting bids. Spring Cleanup will be April 28 and 29. For details, the township can be contacted at 570.586.0111.
