COMMEMORATING 100 YEARS

Labor dispute in Abington Heights School District continues.

CLARKS SUMMIT- The Abington Heights Education Association and Abington Heights Education Support Personal Association requested that an independent fact finder be assigned by the state in regard to contract negotiations with the Abington Heights School District. However, both the teacher’s union and support staff decided to reject the fact finder’s report. The fact finder Robert Gifford, listened to presentations from the district and teacher’s association, gathered data on every aspect of the contract negotiations and then issued a recommendation to the district and teacher’s union and a separate one to the support staff. According to District Superintendent Dr. Michael Mahon, even though each member of the board “despised” the findings, they were prepared to accept the report in order to settle negotiations. If either the teacher’s union or support staff had agreed to the report, the dispute would have been settled. School District Business Manager James Mirabelli offered a presentation of the

TUNKHANNOCK – Two collectors, one who met the last living survivor of the Titanic, share their memorabilia and memories with enthusiasm. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and coinciding with the 3D release of the popular movie, the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock is hosting a display of various Titanic memorabilia through the end of the month. The display includes pieces from the collections of Michael Morin, of Clarks Summit, and Ryan Holdredge, of Tunkhannock, both longtime collectors and Titanic history enthusiasts. The display is open to the public whenever the Dietrich Theater is open for movies or by calling 996.1500 for an appointment. A reception will be held April 27 from 5 - 8 p.m. Morin, who also collects

steamship and ocean ship memorabilia, has been a member of the Titanic Historical Society since 1985. He said his favorite memories with the society include a trip he went on several years ago to visit The Queen Mary, the time he met the last living survivor of the Titanic (who has since died) and the time he was able to touch a large piece of the Titanic. His collection includes 25-30 books, a replica of the life jackets from the Titanic, many posters and documents, china and more. He said his favorite piece in his collection is a large detailed plastic model of the ship. Morin’s interest in the topic began when, in ninth grade, he read and re-read a little red book about it. He then began collecting books, and eventually expanded the collection to include other types of memorabilia. Holdredge, 31, said he started his collection at 17. His interest, however, began around 9, when he watched a documentary about the ship and its tragedy. He started by collecting books, and with the original release of See TITANIC, Page 14

Spring cleanup

BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

On April 21, approximately 50 volunteers arrived at the Abington Area Community Park to take part in the Great Abington Area Park Cleanup. Jennifer Wynn, Abington Area Park volunteer coordinator, said, “It (the cleanup) is part of the statewide cleaning and Earth Day is tomorrow. It needed to be done and it’s a good time of year to do it.” Crews raked and removed debris from existing flower beds, prepared a planting bed for perennials, painted, constructed, weeded, raked, and removed litter at the park. More than $500 worth of established perennials was donated by an anonymous donor, according to Diane Vietz, Abington Area Joint Recreation Board (AAJRB) vice chair and Clarks Green board representative. Clarks Summit resident, Diana Kelley, a cleanup day volunteer, said, “We live in Clarks Summit…It’s our community. We live here and we thought we would come down and be a part of it (the cleanup).” Her daughter, Allison Kelley worked alongside to fulfill service hours at her school, Summit Christian Academy. In upcoming weeks, local municipalities are planning their annual spring cleanups: Clarks Summit Borough will hold its cleanup April 28 from 12 a.m. - 3 p.m. The borough is seeking volunteers to pick up trash and debris, especially along roadways, borough parks and streams. Community organizations are encouraged to participate in the community event, which is sponsored by State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich. Glenburn Township will hold its cleanup May 4 and 5. Residents are asked to place cleanup items curbside for pickup by 5 a.m. May 4. Items will be picked up either Friday or Saturday at the discretion of the contractor.

Letter to the Editor Editor: The Blue Ribbon Foundation of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania is pleased to announce that its 2011 Annual Report is now available on our website at www.bcnepa.com/ ceBRFoundation.aspx. Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania established its private, non-profit Blue Ribbon Foundation in 2002 to invest in health and wellness initiatives throughout northeastern and north central Pennsylvania. In 2011, our Foundation awarded grants to 26 organizations for health and wellness projects that are serving thousands of regional residents. These projects - driven by grassroots organizations and executed with the help of Foundation funding - are producing real results. Last year, for example, in Lackawanna County, our partners included: Employment Opportunity and Training Center (EOTC), which will expand home-based parenting education to 75 additional at-risk families; Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, which will increase colon, breast and cervical cancer screenings for 500 un/ underinsured residents across three counties, including Lackawanna; The Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania, which is providing personal safety education to 100 at-risk children, ages 6 through 11; and United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties, which will continue to provide much-needed health and human services programs to county residents. These partners and others recognize the value of preventing rather than treating disease, and are helping to turn the tide on many of today’s most pressing and most costly - health issues. We remain committed to our mission of helping people live healthier lives, and we’re privileged to support the work of so many dedicated organizations. Cynthia A. Yevich Executive Director The Blue Ribbon Foundation of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania

one. When the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board started the community garden in 2009, she jumped at the chance knowing that she would have ample guidancefrom the master gardeners. In her 20 foot by 20 foot plot at the community garden, Tsaklas grew potatoes, onions, horseradish, squash, tomatoes, oregano, lettuce, beets, beans and broccoli. After attributing some of her success to the quality of soil she has in her plot, she joked about not ever giving it up, ‘It should go in my will.’ The garden is located

off Winola Road on property managed by the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board. The volunteer organizers arrange for compost and soil amendments, wate, and a seven foot high fence to protect plants from critters. Master Gardeners are on hand to answer questions and offer advice. There are some plots still available for the 2012 season. Visit www.abingtonparks.com for more information and to download an application. Applications are also available at the Abington Community Library.

Serving up MIRACLES

The State Street Grill will host a celebrity bartending night to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) April 30 from 5:30 8:30 p.m. The event will feature local celebrity bartenders, who will serve drinks and collect tips for Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger. Children’s Miracle Network is a national nonprofit organization which raises funds for pediatrics throughout the Geisinger Health System. Donations are used to fund services and equipment at Geisinger facilities, as well as educational programs, specialty camps and community

outreach programs. Celebrity bartenders for the night include: Dr. Paul Tomcykoski, Pediatrician; Dr. Linda Thomas Family Practice; Chris Doherty, Mayor of Scranton; Dr. Jim McKenna Family Practice, Pediatrician; Janice Divers, Nursing Director NICU Geisinger Wyoming Valley; Dr. Sam Morkous, Pediatric Neurologist Geisinger; Brian Thompson, DJ Light 105 The

River; and Vince Bucciarelli. Dave Kuharchik and Monica Madeja of WBRE will also be in attendance helping with raffles. Shown at left is Alicia, of Taylor, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Doctors found a large tumor closing her airway and putting pressure on her heart. She overcame several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, surgery and the inability to eat or breathe on her own. Donations to the Children’s Miracle Network help purchase equipment for the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital Oncology department and fund Camp Dost, for pediatric cancer patients like Alicia.

Kristen Cashuric Fetcho had a mentor years ago when she was a Child Protective Servicesinvestigator at Children and Youth Services. She explained, “As far as my work now, I had a mentor years ago when I first started and one of my questions to her was ‘How could you do this and not burn out?’ She said, her strength and energy toward it (her job) comes from the fact that if she’s there or not, it (child abuse) is going to happen and she is glad she is doing her part to help. I look at my job that way also. If I can do something and do it well, and make a difference, I’m going to do that.” In 16 years, Fetcho has interviewed as many as 4,000 children including seven years at Lackawanna County Children and Youth Services as a Child Protective Services Intake caseworker, and nine as an interviewer at the Children’s Advocacy Center/NEPA . As the Children’s Advocacy Center began to grow, she was asked to join as an interviewer, where she works primarily with sexual and physical abuse cases of children, and sometimes medical neglect. In its 14th year, the Center, located at 1710 Mulberry Street, Scranton, is a private, nonprofit organization that provides crisis intervention services to children who have experienced sexual and physical abuse and neglect throughout eight counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and coordinates a multidisciplinary team response to child abuse. Fetcho is part of the team involved in organizing the Center’s largest annual fundraiser, “Moonlight 5k & 10K Walk/Run & Children’s Fun Run,” to be held April 29 at Nay Aug Park, Scranton. As many as 80 volunteers give their time at the event. She said, “The Moonlight Walk/Run is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. It is a wonderful event that manages to pull many of our local communities together in support of our ongoing war against child abuse. This run is so dear to all of our hearts because of the great response it receives. It brings the issue of child abuse to the forefront of people’s mind to help them understand what an epidemic

it is. ” According to Mary Ann LaPorta, Center Director, “Our philosophy here is that until we can teach or impress upon individual adults the importance of their advocacy, we don’t want the money until it’s understood. What we’re looking for is almost a spiritual and philosophical support and then an advocacy and activism. So, it’s advocacy to action. ” She added, “Preparation and responses to the Moonlight Walk/Run are percolating beyond imagination. What we have is a wonderful committee structure and very dedicated volunteers. That’s what makes it happen…The camaraderie and the community spirit, the family interaction, the educational nature of the walk/run with multiple educational tables from collaborating agencies and fun things. It’s a very child -centered festivity…” Geisinger-Community Medical Center presents The Family Festival, which will feature children’s activities and prizes, educational tables, a DJ, themed basket raffles, food and beverage stands, Pennsylvania Masonic Child Identification Program, and Inflatable Hoops and Homerun Derby. It will begin at 3 p.m., with the walk at 5:30 p.m. and run at 6 p.m. Eli Pascal, Center development coordinator said, “In part, having a walk in the evening sets it apart from other walks that take place. I would imagine some of the folks who were organizing it originally, had the idea that from darkness can come good things, so the imagery of nighttime with the concept of healing, growth and moving forward out of difficult situations. .” To register online , visit active.com or neparunner.org.

Big family; big gardens. Paul Epsom of Greystone Gardens used those words to describe his childhood as it relates to gardening. His story is that of a boy born in London, England in1956, who discovered his love for gardening at age 4 or 5, and whose mother was a great influence. One of his first experiences in gardening was looking under rocks

in a rock garden. He said, “The wood lice would fascinate me.” Epsom brought his passion for horticulture to the United States more than 20 years ago, and he plans to share his more than 50 years of gardening experience as Keynote Speaker at the upcoming “Spring into Gardening,” workshop hosted by Luzerne County Master Gardeners, organized by Penn State Co-operative Extension, an educational network providing the university’s resources and expertise to people in 67 Pennsylvania counties. Epsom’s presentation, “How I’m Creating My “E” Garden,” April 28, will be held from 9 a.m. - 9:45 a.m., and is part of a home gardener’s educational event. His talk will be “an inspirational talk to get people excited,” said Epsom. He promises those who attend the workshop, “Lots of photographs, lots of tips, and lots of ideas. “It’s amusing and informative and if you don’t like to hear me talking, there are a bunch of great pictures to look at…” “It allows me to talk about my gar-

dening pursuits and techniques and what I aim for now. The important thing about the experienced gardener, compared to a novice gardener, is the fact that you understand plants and how they work, not just in a pot, but over10 or15 years.” He added, “Gardening takes years, sometimes a lifetime to grow trees and the environment. Patience is very important.” A stroll through Greystone Gardens, Clarks Summit, will reveal plants in their “naturalistic” setting. The size of the plant, its habits, both good and bad, and the location of the plant in the garden are decisions that are easier to make as one becomes more experienced, according to Epsom. “There is a lot of information and the more experienced you get, the easier it is to make those decisions. It’s always good to get advice. You can watch something on TV and it may just be a load of nonsense. No one can really tell unless you have the necessary experience,” said Epsom, who maintains a successful garden is one that is “Effort-

less, Environmental, Enabled, Edible and Extraordinary.” And the experience he is referring to comes from doing, and not from reading or looking, but by seeing plants over the course of a season and over the maturity of the plant’s life span. Among the tips Epsom will offer are creating low maintenance gardens, how to design beds with weeding and mulching in mind and how to make a garden much easier to look after. Epsom has been featured on WNEP-16 The News Station’s “Home and Backyard,” with more than 500 episodes to his credit, and is also gardening correspondent for “The Victory Garden,” a PBS production, which is nationally broadcast in 50 states. In 2003, 2004, and 2005, he won Garden Globe awards from the Garden Writer’s Association for work of an outstanding quality, and in 2006, he won the Gold Award for “Best Talent on Air.” Educated at Warwick University and London University, he holds an honors degree in Psychology and post gradu-

FACTORYVILLE - At the Lackawanna Trail School Board meeting April 10, Maxwell Blake, whose children attend the Lackawanna Trail Elementary Center, told the board that their school district has one of the lowest standards of the state test scores. He said the district ranks at 22 percent, while neighboring districts in Tunkhannock and the Abington Heights ranks at 52 and 87 percent, respectively. “If you care about education, this board should do something about that because it’s pathetic,” he said. Superintendent Matthew Rakauskas said, “We educate every student who comes through the door. We’re very proud of our students who go to Ivy League college, go to two and four- year colleges, who make it through graduation, or may have struggled or benefited from our programs. It’s a great district.” He added that Trail is concerned with statistics and academics. “We’re always looking to improve,” he said. Blake said his research came from the PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment) test scores. He said that most students ranged in the 67-70 percent range. One of the board members said the board receive a district report card and a high school report card, which are provided by the state. She said none of the data Blake mentioned was reported in either. Board President Ned Clarke asked Blake to meet with the board another time and discuss openly with the superintendent and the curriculum director. Blake agreed. In other business, retirement and resignation

were announced and approved effective the last day of the 2011-12 school year, with notes of thanks made to all. Retirees include Barbara Osmun, a 5th-grade learning support teacher at the Elementary Center; Diane Smith, a 4th-grade learning support teacher at the Elementary Center; Mary C. Stuble, an elementary art teacher at Trail Elementary; Anna Mae Belles, a teacher’s assistant at the high school. “Congratulations to Anna Mae,” said Rakauskas. “She’s one of the longest current employees of the school, and she will be missed.” Dr. Mark Lombardi motioned that Karen Rigard’s letter of resignation as school board director from Region #1, be accepted with regret and thanks effective April 30. The board agreed. Rakauskas thanked Rigard for her service. “From an administrator’s point of view, I certainly wish you a great time after you leave the board. We really appreciated everything you’ve done here especially your angle as an educator.” . Rigard’s husband Rick Rigard, who was present at the meeting, said, “I know how much she (Karen) enjoyed serving on the board and serving the school district of Lackawanna Trail and how much she loves and supports the school district. She always said it’s the best kept secret in Northeastern Pennsylvania.” Board member Judith Johnson made a motion to appoint Frank Tylutki as interim school board director, effective May 1, 2012. The board agreed. “I received a letter from Mr. Tylutki considering him to be added to the board in Mrs. Rigard’s resignation,” said Clarke. “That will be effective May 1 and he will serve until the general election in November.”

district’s finances. According to Mahon, there are three ways the district can balance the budget: cut expenses, use the fund balance and increase revenue. Mirabelli said he expects the district to run a deficit of more than $2 million in the 2012-13 school year, based on a preliminary budget. Despite the financial shortcomings, Mirabelli stressed that the district is spending efficiently. Abington Heights is ranked among the top 10 percent of PA Schools based on PSSA scores and the district spends less than 62 percent of all PA school districts. Also, of the top 50 schools, Abington Heights spends less per student than 70 percent of the schools. According to Mahon, tentative cuts include four English teachers, including two at the high school, three maintenance/custodial employees and three administrative or clerical positions, at an estimated savings of $500,000. Last year, the district eliminated 11 teaching positions, according to Mahon. The board is hoping to pass a preliminary budget May 16 and a final budget June 27, three days ahead of the June 30 deadline. Warren Acker, head of the District Facilities Committee, announced that he met with Augie Grant from Energy Education Incorporated, who made a proposal to the district for energy savings. According to Acker, the proposed changes could save the district 20 to 30 percent on the electric bill. Mahon reported that an Abington Heights Odyssey of the Mind team finished 3rd out of 180 in the state finals. Mahon also suggested to the board opening the position of occupational therapist. The district currently has a contract with the NEIU, but Mahon is confident they would save money by making a change.

Trail grad to perform in NYC BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

“Moments with Ravi: Tales of a Misfit,” written and performed by 2002 Lackawanna Trail High School graduate and Dalton native Ravi Roth, will play April 30 at 9:30 p.m. at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, 407 West 42 Street. “Putting together the show takes a lot of work,” Roth said. “I’m juggling a lot of things right now, but when the time comes it’s so rewarding.” The play, directed by Michael Schwartz with musical direction by Caleb Hoyer, is a comedic, musical glimpse into Roth’s misfit life from the farms of Pennsylvania to the streets of New York City. According to Roth, the play features music from “Sondheim to Gaga” and everything in between. Roth starred off -Broadway in “Altar Boyz.” He was featured in the 2010 reading of “Bare” and in the New York Musical Theatre Festival hit “My Mother’s Jewish Wiccan Wedding.” He also appears in the current webisode “Perks.” Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at http://tinyurl.com/goatsbway. There is a $15 minimum. For more information, visit www.raviroth.com. Roth said he fell in love with theater when he was just five years old after being cast as a munchkin in a production of “The Wizard of Oz” at the Masonic Temple in Scranton. Even though he got the chicken pox and was unable to perform at the show, he knew he found his passion. “That was the first time I realized what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,” he said. Roth likes how his shows can be a diversion from everyday life for both himself and his audience. “I enjoy being able to take people on a journey and allow them to escape from reality, and go into the experience with me on stage,” he said. Roth’s ultimate goal is to reach Broadway, but he also has other aspirations. He had a guest spot on the soap opera “As the World Turns” and would like to further expand his acting to television, commercials and films. Since Roth moved to New York City after graduating from The Boston Conservatory with a BFA, he spent several years going on auditions, See Roth, Page 8

My first was last spring’s ‘singer’s choice’ program. I heard about Mostly Opera through an attendee and contacted Helene.

Zieger, a Clarks Summit native, also said that she appreciates the “honor of getting to sing with some really great singers. I am a relative newbie to singing and to really studying opera, so I look at this as a great opportunity to learn from others. Plus, I just really enjoy making music,” she added. “I would encourage everyone to come out just to have an afternoon of enjoying the arts.

They both write British detective stories featuring high-ranking Scotland Yard inspectors. However, both of these prolific writers call the U.

Each of them --- Deborah Crombie and Elizabeth George --- has a new murder mystery just added to the collection at the Abington Community Library. “No Mark Upon Her,” by Deborah Crombie. His career and reputation on the line, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid is pressured to find the answers in a complicated investigation into the death of Rebecca Meredith, an Olympic rowing contender who was also a high-ranking detective with Scotland Yard. A separate investigation by Detective Inspector Gemma James, newly married to Kincaid, reveals a disturbing and possibly related series of crimes, widening the field of suspects. “Believing the Lie,” by Elizabeth George. Inspector Thomas Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Deborah St. James when he is called on to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man’s uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, but as Lynley’s investigation heats up, the Fairclough family’s deceptions and delusions threaten to destroy everyone from the family patriarch to the victim’s troubled son, Tim.

Film to explore Japanese culture

As the Dietrich Children’s Theatre “travels” to Japan in their staged production of “Nezumi no Yomeiri,” or in English “The Mouse’s Marriage,” April 27 at10 a.m. and April 28 at11a.m.,audience members will learn a variety of Japanese words. The play is an original production of the adaptation of a Japanese folk tale written by Dalton playwright Rich Ryczak and directed by Jennifer Jenkins of Tunkhannock. Filled with humor and lessons about pride, honor, respect and the importance of civility, it familiarizes children with Japanese words, the meanings of which are clear in their use in context, and details of Japanese culture. The play is free to the public. Ryczak has acted in the Dietrich Children’s Theater for the past two years. Radzieski, a graduate of Keystone Col-

lege, has appeared in six other Dietrich Children’s Theatre shows. Schottman made her debut with the Children’s Theatre last year. Thompson was last seen in the Dietrich’s community-based production of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” as Aide Williams. Jenkins worked with Steven Sondheim’s Young Playwrights, the Manhattan Theatre Club and the PBS series Great Performances. She hasreturned to Tunkhannock and is the Dietrich Theater’s Executive Director and Director of Theatre Arts.

Roth is looking forward to the April 30 performance, which he characterizes as a comedic and musical journey through his life, specifically his childhood growing up not really fitting into the mold of his brother or sister. “My sister, Maya, was a musical genius and my brother, Yogi, was a star jock,” he said. “I tried to follow in their footsteps, but found that acting was something I was really good at. And I realized everyone fits in somewhere. I want the message of this play to be that we all have a place.”

Discover the magic of family stories

When my children were little, they begged me to tell them stories about what they called “the olden days.” They meant my childhood. I think most of us are fascinated by what our parents’ and grandparents’ lives were like before we were born. After all, it is these family stories –often embellished in the retelling – that help us understand the people we love most. They are part of our personal histories; perhaps our richest legacy. No one understands the power and magic of family stories better than Tea Obreht. In her brilliant debut novel, “The Tiger’s Wife,” the narrator, a young Serbian doctor named Natalia, says: “Everything necessary to understand my grandfather lies between two stories: the story of the Tiger’s Wife, and the story of the deathless man. These stories run like secret rivers through all the other stories of his life….” Like a woman’s long and lustrous braid woven with colored ribbons and wildflowers, “The Tiger’s Wife” weaves an almost bewildering complexity of narrative strands, combining the realism of Natalia’s present-day mission with her grandfather’s seemingly mythic stories. Natalia travels 400 miles on a good-will mission to vaccinate and treat children in an orphanage run by a young Catholic monk. En route, she learns that her beloved grandfather, Leandro Stefanovic, has died in a town not far from the orphanage. Her distraught grandmother begs her to retrieve Leandro’s belongings so his funeral ritual may be carried out properly. Her dual missions are complicated by the presence of a band of strangers who are digging in the vineyard behind the orphanage. Although they all suffer from a mysterious illness, this ragged band works ceaselessly to find and sanctify the remains of a cousin who died there 12 years ago, during the war. Their leader is convinced if they can observe the proper burial ritual, the malady that afflicts them will be cured. Natalia agrees to help them if they allow her to treat one of the children with modern medicine. This narrative strand, which also includes Natalia’s childhood memories, serves as a kind of skeleton on which the author hangs the real meat of her novel: the tales her grandfather has told her about his past. These stories embody the book’s main themes: death, superstition and the power of the past. Natalia believes the stories of the tiger’s wife and the deathless man are fantasy, and indeed they seem so. The tiger’s wife is a young deaf-mute married to Luka, a brutal butcher. They live in Galina, the small mountain village where Natalia’s grandfather spent his childhood. The tiger, freed

with the other animals when German bombs destroy a zoo in1941, has made his way to the forest above Galina, and his mysterious, wild presence terrifies all but two of the villagers: Luka’s young wife and Natalia’s grandfather, then a 9-year-old boy, whose most cherished possession is a copy of Kipling’s “The Jungle Book.” The little boy’s favorite character is Shere Khan, the tiger. With the exception of the boy and his grandmother, who come to the deaf-mute’s aid, the villagers see her as an outcast and avoid her. They come to secretly call her the tiger’s wife because she befriends the tiger that frightens them, stealing meat from her husband’s smokehouse to feed it. The story of the tiger’s wife, Natalia tells us, is also the story of how her grandfather became a man. While this tale seems fairly plausible, the story of the deathless man brings an element of magical realism to the book. Natalia’s grandfather claims he has met the deathless man, Gavran Gaile, on several occasions. To the skeptical Leandro, Gaile reveals that he is Death’s nephew. Gaile explains that his uncle has cursed him with immortality, and that his fate is to bring comfort to those about to die by revealing this fact to them. Gaile says that if Natalia’s grandfather is unable to kill him, Leandro must give him the copy of “The Jungle Book” he has carried with him all his life. Although Leandro fails to drown the deathless man, Gaile does not immediately claim the book. They meet off and on throughout Leandro’s life, and it is only when Natalia finds her grandfather’s book missing from his effects after his death that she comes to believe that the story of the deathless man might be true. Obreht, who was born in Belgrade in1985, came to the United States when she was 12 , and although she sets her novel in an unidentified country in the Balkans, she’s obviously writing about Yugoslavia before and after the wars that split her homeland into seven independent states in the 1990s – events she did not experience firsthand. You won’t find the names of the cities and villages in which the story takes place on any map, which is a stroke of genius on the author’s part. By deliberately blurring the geography, Obreht makes us realize that the setting is universal, and that the experiences of its fictional residents stand for those of everyone caught up in the horrors of war, regardless of their ethnicity or religion. That she wrote this magnificent, richly textured novel when she was only 25 is as much a miracle as the book itself.

Her daughter, Tiffany Smith, is part of the team competing for world recognition April 27, 28 and 29. The 2012 Cheerleading and Dance Worlds™ will be broadcast on ESPN from their Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. The weekend competition will include national all star cheerleading and dance teams and international teams. Five young women from the greater Abington area will compete with their team: Jenna Jalowiec, Courtney Norton, Jessica Kurey, Tiffany Smith and Danielle Barrasse. The team members, who are part of the All -Star Cheer Academy in Jessup, trained for the U.S. All Star Federation of Cheer and Dance Teams national competition, which took place in Nashville, Tenn. March17 and18. Jessica Kurey,17, explained how her team made it to the national event, “It took almost everything you can imagine, and I’m sure you hear this all the time, but it honestly took blood, sweat and tears for our team to make it to where we are today. To make it to nationals, it also took guts. It took guts to show up prepared as we could be to the competitions and leave our hearts on the floor after each and every performance.” There the young woman qualified for the upcoming World competition. Kurey, an Abington Heights high school student, said she is excited by her road to Worlds. She said positive attitude played a huge part in their journey. “One negative comment can ruin an entire team’s outlook on a situation. It involved a strong mind and body during our preparation in order to make it to Worlds. And we all had to work to create a bond greater than all of us, and to help realize we are all in this together,” Kurey said. The group was not daunted by injuries and endless rounds of training.

After winning his first tournament on the International Junior Golf Tour, Abington Heights High School golfer Anthony Sebastianelli strives to reach his ultimate goal of playing golf at the Division I level. Sebastianelli, a sophomore who lives with his parents Gary and Darlene in Clarks Summit, won The Battle at Bulle Rock golf tournament in Havre de Grace, Md., April 14-15. Sebastianelli faced off against 60 other golfers from the ages of 1519 to capture his first tournament victory. “Earlier in the season, I wasn’t playing very well,” Sebastianelli said. “I always was shooting in the 80s the first round, then in the 70s the second round. So it was nice to put a solid weekend together.” Sebastianelli shot a six over 78 and sat four strokes behind the leader after the first round. “I was upset with the way I was chipping, so before round two I really worked on chipping,” Sebastianelli said. “I’m glad I did since I only hit eight out of 18 greens.” In October, Sebastianelli played in a golf tournament at Penn State University. He also entered the final round trailing by four strokes. “That time I shot an 83 because I was worried about winning too much,” Sebastianelli said. “This time around I just thought to myself ‘Let’s just get top 10.’” This time, Sebastianelli shot an even par 72 in the second round to secure his first tour victory. “Round two really put my short game to the test,” Sebastianelli said. “I was trying to get up and down a lot, so luckily my chipping was better than round one.” Entering the 17th hole, Sebastianelli made six birdies on the day, including three in four holes on the back nine. “I just made birdie and I was two under on the day. So then I started to get nervous and made bogies on 17 and 18,” Sebastianelli said. “I told myself I was lucky I played well for the first 16 holes.” Sebastianelli started playing golf twice a year at a young age. In sixth grade, he took the sport more seriously and started to play more often. See Golfer, Page 12

Abington Heights high school student and member of the team headed to Worlds spoke about what went into the preparation. “Once Chrissy Cherundolo, our coach, decided we were ready to try a Level 5 team this season, we started by practicing through the summer and many of us attended Camp Woodward to work on elite tumbling skills. We also attended Stunt Fest in Washington, D.C., in the fall, to get some help on our Level 5 stunting skills. We had injuries to work through and some tough performances, but we pulled it together when we needed to in Nashville to get the bid for Worlds.” Tiffany Smith, a senior at Scranton Preparatory School, said earning number one rank is the dream.

is our first year to compete at this level. So many teams compete for a bid that it’s just an honor to get this far. I can hardly wait to see the teams from other countries compete live. Of course, we’d love to win, but we realize that we have a way to go to get to that level and are just happy going.” But there is always the goal of a first-place rank. Courtney Norton, a17-yearold student at Abington Heights High School said, “When placing number one, it means you are the best in the world, that’s crazy. You also receive a really awesome Worlds ring with the year you won to always remind you of what you achieved.” Team member Jenna Jalowiec,18, said that what motivated her was people doubting their team goal of competing on the World level. The Abington Heights high school senior said that made her want it even more. “I couldn’t let them be right, so I knew I had to motivate our team to work and get to Worlds.” Barrasseseemed to sum it up best. “Ever since I became an all-star cheerleader, I have wanted to attend Worlds in Orlando. I watch it every year hoping someday I would get a chance to go. In fact, my mom was

going to take me just to watch this year. I am so excited and proud of my team that we were able to get a bid our first year competing in the Senior Small Level 5 Division. I really don’t think it has actually hit me yet that it is real. Probably when we take the floor to compete and be broadcast by ESPN it will.” Teammate Norton said that it is every All Star Cheerleader’s dream to make it to Worlds. “It’s been on my bucket list ever since I started cheerleading, and being able to check it off is amazing.” . The girls all agree that one of their mentors is their coach, Cherundolo. Smith said her mentor Cherundolo had the ability to open a gymand build it up to the “prestigious organization” it is today. And she maintains a professional manner in the face of obstacles.Of course, family support comes in to play. As Norton said, “My biggest mentor is my mom. She always told me that hard work pays off. She works so hard for my family and never slacks for a second. She’s taught me so many life lessons .” Viewers can watch the competition on ESPN beginning April 27 at 8 a.m. through April 29.

vendor. But this show actually has a soft spot in my heart, because my mother- in- law, Pat Atkins, was the first chairperson and I was her decorating chair 20 years ago.” “Uniquely different” is how Michael J. Buranich described his birdhouses that are constructed from recycled, reclaimed and repurposed materials. Buranich, who is also a newcomer to the show, crafts functional habitats for feathered friends, and each birdhouse is uniquely different from the next. “They suit the needs of many different birds and vary in height, shape and size,” according to Buranich, whose business is “The Flippin’ Bird.” Buranich said, “It started as a hobby. I love to create different visual pieces for my yard and found I could create something uniquely different with a purpose…I love to work with my hands to create one of a kind pieces of art using wood, metal and a creative eye.” His birdhouses are priced from $30 to $465, depending upon height and detailed work.

WWW.THEABINGTONJOURNAL.COM

Original Organizing by Tara and The Flippin’ Bird are two of approximately 30 vendors who will participate in the show. The House, Garden and Gift Show will also sponsor a raffle for a gift basket from a local business with items donated by the show’s vendors. Maria Donahue is the show chair. Sunita Aurora/ERA One Source Realty is the show sponsor. When lunch time rolls around, Mari Walker, Duffy’s Coffee House owner, will have fare available for sale at a luncheon in the North Wing. The luncheon will be served 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Walker said, “I met with the ladies from the Comm and we decided on the menu together. They had been in, some regularly and had their favorites. We decided on the quiche, for example, because it is somewhat portable, but very different. I gave them options for the additions and they picked fire roasted tomato, bacon and provolone and a vegetarian option as well. The tomato basil soup is simple but has an elegant twist and the vegetarian Greek wrap is an option for vegetarians, but I know some

carnivores who love it. I use Boars’ Head meats and cheeses and all fresh produce, organic wherever possible. I am very honored to be working with them this year, as I know this is a great event for our community.” The Waverly Community House is located at 1115

There are lessons to be learned from the tragedy, he said. “No piece of machinery, no matter how glorious and capable it looks, is exempt from disaster.” His advice to anyone wishing to learn more about the Titanic or start their own collection is to, “start by reading. If you’re at all interested, read books about it…then start to live it and start to learn from it.”

ABINGTON JOURNAL/SUE REBENSKY

Meeting time changed BY SUE REBENSKY Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE- At the April 14 Factoryville Borough Council meeting, the board proposed changing the monthly meeting time from 7 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. or immediately following the joint sewer authority meeting. Council member Tom Davis said, “We finish our sewer meeting mostly in a half hour. Many of us are on both boards and end up sitting here for a half hour before we can start the next meeting. We need to consider moving the meeting time. I feel it would be a better use of our time and allow us to get out a bit earlier on meeting nights.” President Charles Wrobel agreed, “I have no problem moving the meeting time… I think we should bring this to a vote,” said Wrobel. With the proposal on the table, the board voted in favor for the meeting to be advertised and moved. Borough Manager Mary Ellen Buckbee informed the board that the borough received $240 from Zumba classes that have been held in the town hall for potential purchases. Shesuggested the boardconsider the purchase of two high velocity fans at a price of $120 each. “We do not

have air conditioning in the building and few windows open, the summer will be hot, but at least the fans will cool the building off. This is not a budgeted item and money is not coming out of the budget so it won’t cost us anything,” she said. The board approved the purchase. Town Solicitor Paul Litwin addressed the board in regard to the proposed Flood Plain Ordinance and Storm Water Ordinance as well as the taxpayer Bill of Rights Ordinance. “I have made some minor changes as well as recommendations. I am fully confident that they are ready to be passed by the board tonight. One of the recommendations is to allow the zoning officer to make decisions in regard to small projects such as sheds. As long as he reviews it with the town engineer then the zoning officer can approve the small projects. Down the road you may have to make changes, but for now it looks good to go and I recommend holding a public hearing and passing the ordinances,” said Litwin. The board approved the Flood Plain, Storm Water and Taxpayer Bill of Rights to be advertised, discussed at a public hearing and then approved.

In other business: Memorial Day Parade was approved for May 28; Spring Cleanup approved for May 14 at a fee of $50 per load. Also, PennDOT will close the bridge on College Avenue with no date announced as of yet. However, the bridge will be closed for two years and the bidding for the materials will begin in 2014.
