Turnpike, is 151 feet tall, said William Capone, Director of Communications and Public Relations for the PA Turnpike Commission. The structure, which took two years to build, opened in 1957.

Siblings John J. Fitzgerald and Gerrie Carey will pay tribute to their father John E. Fitzgerald, a civil engineer who worked on numerous highway construction projects including the Pennsylvania turnpike’s Freedom Bridge, Route 6/11and the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editor: Although underground shoots may occur in other states, Pennsylvania is the last state where cruel live pigeon shoots are openly practiced. Therefore, out-of-state shooters travel to Pennsylvania to kill birds. Pigeon shoots are cruel no matter where they occur. They are events where trapped birds are launched from boxes. Prizes are granted for shooters who kill the most. More than 22,000 birds are used as live targets every year in the state for these shoots. More than 70 percent of the thousands of pigeons released are wounded. Injured birds often make it out of the shooting ring, only to suffer, languish and die later. In April the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11 to 3 in favor of legislation to end target shoots with live pigeons. SB 626, sponsored by Sen. Pat Browne, R-16, now goes to the full Senate. Please write or call your state senator and representative and ask them to support this bill. For more information HSUS.org.

The meeting ended with a complimentary buffet provided by Caravia and the Waverly Community House.

DALTON- A proclamation ceremony to honor local police officers who lost their lives was held May 13 at Streamside Park in Dalton. The Fraternal Order of Police Northeastern Lodge 63 chooses a different site for the memorial service each year. The names of fallen police officers from Lackawanna, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties were read as part of the ceremony. The event coincided with 2011 National Police Week which began May 15 with National Peace Officers Memorial Day. Alyssa Lazar, a sixth grader at Abington Heights Middle School, who recently won first place at the state level of PTA Reflections, sang the national anthem. Dalton mayor and local Fraternal Order of Police president James Gray said he thought the ceremony went well. “I was very pleased with the turnout of family members,” he said. Grayserved as Dalton’s chief of police for 25 years. District Magistrate James Gibbons served as the guest speaker for the event. “It’s a great privilege and honor for me to be here to speak,” he said. Gibbons added that while serving as a federal prosecutor from 1987-93, he learned first-

hand what level of dedication police officers have. “You put your lives in danger to keep the peace,” Gibbons said. “I know that talking to my fellow judges, especially in Lackawanna County; there is a very high level of respect for law enforcement. We rely on you, no matter what we do to protect us and to seek peace.” At the end of the ceremony, the Fraternal Order of Police presented outstanding service awards to Carbondale Police Detective Aaron Haley, Detective Sgt. Jeff Waters and Detective Sgt. Jesse VanDeusen. Waters and VanDeusen were chosen for solving a case of theft at St. Rose of Lima Church in Carbondale. Haley was recognized for his work on a case involving a serial arsonist while he was an acting detective.

Physical remembrance

RANSOM TWP. - A memorial with flowers, a cross, stuffed animals, notes, a photo of the late Cole T. Hazelton and his mother and other toys was created at the site of a recent crash in remembrance of the toddler. A fatal car crash May 9 took the life of 22-month-old Cole T. Hazelton. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Pennsylvania State Police at Dunmore. Lackawanna County Coroner, Tim Rowland, said that the toddler died of carbon monoxide poisoning and thermal injuries. The crash occurred after a Ford Focus drove into the back of a jeep that was stopped on Dark Region Road in Ransom Township. Brad Steckel who lives by the site and works for Ransom Township said that the gas tank on the jeep exploded when the Ford Focus hit it.

RANSOM TWP. - The Ransom Township Planning Commission meeting May 16 started out with a moment of silence for 22 –month- old Cole T. Hazelton, of Scranton, who died in a car crash May 9 on Dark Region Road in the township. The Falling Springs Estate Development Phase One was discussed at the meeting. Township Engineer John Seamans reviewed the new maps and said they were up to date. The people from Falling Springs Development LLC asked the planning commission to recommend final approval to the supervisors for phase one. The township has been reviewing the plan since 2002. Falling Springs Estates is a proposed private community that will house approximately 52 lots of land on Falling Springs Drive, according to co-owner of the land Edward Bush. Right now the plan is in phase one, in which 22 lots on half of the property are going to be sold for residential homes. The Ransom Township Planning Commission decided to recommend phase one of the Falling Springs Plan for approval to the Ransom Township Supervisors with a few contingencies: The fire company must agree in writing with the changes that have been made; Township Engineer must approve it; the developers of Falling Springs plan must deliver ten copies of the maps to the Planning Commission as soon as possible Also discussed at the meeting, the Whah-Taft sub-division maps have been signed by the Ransom Township Supervisors after the reviewing engineer approved it. For plans to be approved in Ransom Twp., an applicant has to bring them before the township Planning Commission. Then the plans are sent out for review and the reviews are returned to the Planning Commission. Finally, the Planning Commission recommends final approval or denial to the Ransom Township Supervisors. Ransom Township Supervisors will hold their next meeting June 6 at Mt. Dewey Community Hall. Ransom Township Planning Commission will meet June 20.

Marywood introduces summer media program BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

SCRANTON - This summer, Marywood University is offering students a chance to express themselves creatively and get a jump on their futures with the Communication Arts Institute. The one -week intensive program, which will run from July 18 to 22, will give high school students the chance to see what being a communication major is like. “The students will write a script the first day and half, the second day and a half they’ll shoot the script and then the next day and half they’ll edit it. Then at the end of it, we’ll have a show-and-tell for the parents,” said Dr. Douglas Lawrence, chair of the Communication Arts Department. “So, they get to do a little bit of writing, they get to work with the cameras a little and they get to edit a little bit, so they get a general hands-on taste for it.” The idea for the program has been in development for the past few years, beginning when Vice President for Enrollment Management Ann Boland-Chase came to Lawrence and said she felt the university should host a media program in the summer. “She and I started having a series of meetings about it and came up with this idea, and I brought it to my faculty and they got on board,” said Lawrence. Lawrence said the university is planning to host the institute yearly, and in the coming years will add a broadcast journalism component and an advertising, public relations component. They decided for the first year to concentrate on just digital media, with Lawrence teaching the script writing portion, Dr. Michael Mirabito teaching editing and Ernie Mengoni teaching field production. “Year one is a scaled down version,” said Lawrence. “So rather than launch the whole thing at one time this year, we’re just doing the digital media piece, which basically is short filmmaking.” Lawrence said they haven’t decided whether the film the students make will be documentary style or drama, and will discuss it with the class to see what they want to do. In addition to getting hands-on training, students will also have the option to earn three college credits for the class that will be valid at any school they choose to enroll, not just Marywood University. The program is geared toward students who will be seniors in the 2011-12 school year, but Lawrence said that students entering their junior year can also apply. The cost of the institute is $450 for students seeking three college credits; $250 for students not seeking college credits. To apply to CAI, students will need to fill out the official registration form available at www.MarywoodCAI.com and submit both a sealed high school transcript and a sealed letter of recommendation.

In a typical meeting, Demarest said he starts the children off with exercises to get them familiar with the game and to open their eyes to what the pieces can do. Most of the meeting time, however, is taken up with children playing games against each other with a 45- minute time limit. Demarest teaches the children to always be three to four moves ahead and think about the consequences of their moves. Demarest said he asks each child to play at least one game between each meeting because practice is so crucial. Demarest said he hopes that the children will be able to compete in the next three months and be able to play in a chess tournament by early 2012. Additionally, he would like to secure their United States Chess Federation rating in one year. Demarest has high hopes that the club will expand as school winds down. He sees the club eventually expanding to other age groups, as long as he can find another helping hand to run the club. Current Chess Club members include Colby Lavelle, Factoryville, 10; Preston Lavelle, Factoryville, 11; Ethan Oswald, La Plume, 12 and AJ Hendershot, Dalton, 11.

Waverly awarded H2O grant BY BRITTNEY PIERCE Abington Journal Correspondent

WAVERLY TWP. - Waverly Township has been awarded an H20 grant that has been pending for quite a few years and finally resurfaced, as announced by supervisors at the May 9 meeting. Steve Armillay, chief of staff to state Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich, was in attendance to explain the terms of the grant. They will be awarded the sum of $1.1 million. The original proposal for the grant was $4.5 million, but many grants have been shaved down. The supervisors plan to review the grant at the May 30 meeting. The addressing change to Waverly Township from Abington Township continues to be a problem because the township has discovered there is no appeal that can be filed. The only option is to approach a congressman, which the township intends to do. However, residents are having problems renewing their driver’s licenses due to the address change

On May 29, at10 a.m., the public is invited to join the Fitzgerald family beneath the bridge for its dedication as the John E. Fitzgerald Memorial Bridge. The familiy’s patriarch, the late John E. Fitzgerald, was a civil engineer who worked on numerous highway construction projects including the turnpike’s Freedom Bridge, Route 6/11, the Massachusetts Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey. He held the position of the first superintendent of the Northeast Extension and worked for the turnpike commission for13 years. The dedication was approximately two years in the making, as family members including Gerrie Fitzgerald Carey, Clarks Summit Borough Council president and daughter of John E. Fitzgerald, researched to be sure the bridge had never been dedicated to another person. Carey said, “We did the research to be sure the bridge had never been dedicated to anyone, with the help of state Representative Jim Wansacz.” The turnpike commission approved the dedication as did the House of Representatives and Senate. “It (the construction of the Freedom Bridge) was fascinating to me. I think I was in sixth grade and I would go over after school and I would ride that heavy equipment up to the top of the hill,” said son John J. Fitzgerald. The northeast extension and bridge construction project also brought John E. Fitzgerald back home to work. His son said, “This time of the year he would be gone until the fall or until they shut down in the winter-

time, so when this project (the turnpike project) came along, it meant that he would be working locally.” “…The highway project he was most proud of was the construction of The Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. He worked on a few sections of the extension,” John J. Fitzgerald added. “One of the reasons the bridge was built was to spear the economy, and the exit in Clarks Summit was probably designed to help in the development of this area.” According to John J. Fitzgerald, “One of the reasons that they were sensitive to changing the name of the bridge was because the original highway was called the Freedom Highway and was supposed to run from Florida all the way to Canada. If you’re heading toward Clarks Summit, you notice that the road goes straight for a little while. Well, it was originally designed to go straight and then curve up where Interstate 81is, but when the federal highway system was developed, they deleted that Freedom Highway and made the interstate highway system…” The late Marie Fitzgerald, wife of John E. and mother to their eight children, was born in 1911and would celebrate her 100th birthday this year. Both she and John E. Fitzgerald were present for the ribbon -cutting ceremony and watched the first cars drive over the new bridge, according to son

John J. Fitzgerald. “We feel fortunate that the bridge is being dedicated now because it’s such a special year for us,” said Carey, referring to her mother’s birthday and the ongoing Clarks Summit Centennial Celebration. She added, “My father was what you would call “the quiet man,” and they were always doing for everyone and we thought this would be a wonderful tribute since he had blood, sweat and tears in the construction and maintenance of the bridge. It was just an appropriate thing to do and it felt good to everybody.” Turnpike dignitaries will be on hand for the ceremony, to be held at the Ramada Plaza, 820 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit, with a reception immediately following. A large mock sign will be unveiled. Currently, signs are located at each end of the bridge. For more information or to attend the dedication ceremony and reception, contact Carey at 570.587.3370.

Authority addresses valve malfunction BY BEN FREDA Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE - At the Factoryville Borough/Clinton Twp Joint Municipal Authority Sewer meeting, May 11, manager Mary Ellen Buckbee, in her secretary/treasurer report, read aloud a letter concerning actuator valves in the sewer plant. The letter was written by Jack Scheuer of BCM Engineers to Mark Parker, employee of Parkson Corporations. The letter indicated that Parkson Corporations is working with the manufacturer of the actuator valves and equipment upgrades will be provided when available. Buckbee explained to the board that the actuator valves were not opening nor closing properly and the alarms were triggered. “We are not being woken up by these alarms, but the fact remains that these valves are malfunctioning,” said Buckbee. “They fixed the alarm problem but they haven’t actually fixed the problem that was causing the alarm.” “I want to keep you upto-date because the warranty expires on Friday, and we’re not completely ready,” said Buckbee. The board will try to extend the warranty until the problem with the actuator valves is fixed.

Bravo to the Dietrich Theater Radio Players. They once again did a splendid job of taking us back to those grand old days of radio theatre. The group kicked a recent evening off with their production of “My Man Godfrey,” a Lux Radio Theatre production, which originally aired on May 9, 1938. Boy it was a hoot. Talk about a drama with a comedic twist. This radio play was so popular that it eventually was turned into a film. The Radio Players second production of the evening was also spectacular. They performed an episode of the ever-popular “My Friend Irma” series. The Dietrich’s own Barbara Jones played Irma and Esther Harmatz played her friend Jane Stacy. In this episode, Jane recalled meeting Irma, and, of course, high jinx ensued. Their comedic timing was perfect, and I especially loved the sound effects. Bob Kulow is just the master of sound effects, and the group’s director, Valerie Paulus, always picks out the perfect plays for them to perform. If you weren’t able to see the Radio Players’ performance at the Dietrich, don’t worry; they will be taking their show on the road this weekend. Join them at Steamtown National Historic Site May 28 at 11 a.m. for an episode of “My Friend Irma” and May 29 at 1 p.m. for “My Man Godfrey.” It will be worth the trip. Speaking of theatre, this summer the Dietrich will be offering acting opportunities for children. Michaela Moore of All About Theatre will be back to teach Acting Camp for Kids. In these camps, children learn all about the theatre arts through games, improvisation, storytelling, play making, character creation and more. Her students have a ball creating characters and a play as they learn all about a play’s structure, an actor’s instruments and more. At the end of each camp, family and friends will be invited to attend a casual performance. I just love seeing her students’ creativity and confidence shine through at the final performance. It really is a testament to the impact that theatre arts has on children. Michaela will be offering two acting camps for students ages 7 to 12 years old and one camp for little ones ages 4 to 6 years old. Call us at 570.996.1500 or visit www.dietrichtheater.com for details or to register.

“We’ve had a good life and now we just really want to give back,” said Betty Perry, wife of Duncan Perry. “People have to understand how important volunteer work is because I don’t believe people do it enough. People need us.” said Duncan Perry. Duncan Perry has been many places in his life and affected many lives. He said he does not do it for himself though or for the publicity. He does it because he loves giving people something to smile about. The volunteer musician is originally from Connecticut, but has lived many different places, most recently Waverly for nine years, with his wife. He has worked at six different universities in the United States and as a journalist in Prague while with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. There he analyzed events in former communist countries to figure out what the new Europe would look like. Perry said, “I was literally seeing history in the making. I had such a blast and learned so much.” His last job was at The University of Scranton, where he retired from his

position as Dean of Graduating and Continuing Studies three and a half years ago. Since then he has been voluntarily playing music at locations such as Mercy Hospice in Scranton, St. Joseph’s Center in Dunmore, libraries and more. “I’ll go to any place that will have me,” laughed Perry, “I make tons of mistakes but I just keep on going. That’s what’s important. What you lack in skill, you have to make up in enthusiasm.” He inherited the banjo as a child from his grandfather after he died. The banjo was just sitting in Perry’s house for awhile. Then he saw someone playing a banjo, and he

With Jane Julius Honchell SEE JANE READ Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the garden… A cactus whose spines leap to impale you, a vine whose shiny berries can send you into a coma, a gorgeous flower that smells like a ripe cadaver, a houseplant that will kill your cat: who knew plants were so scary and dangerous? Until I read Amy Stewart’s lovely little book, “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities,” I generally thought of the members of the vegetable kingdom as benign, beautiful and often, delicious, but now I’ll be approaching the pleasures of my garden a tad more cautiously. In her introduction, Stewart makes it clear that her intent is not to scare us, but rather to help us understand the power of plants, and their “dark little secrets.” Then she introduces us to plants that can kill, sicken or intoxicate us (and our pets), along with a handful that are simply “monstrously ill-mannered.” Using an engaging blend of science, history, and humor, she alternates among eight categories of wicked plants: deadly, dangerous, painful, illegal, intoxicating, destructive, and offensive. In the deadly category, you will meet, among others, the oleander, poison hemlock, rat bane, the rosary plant, the suicide tree and the yew – and don’t forget those lovely lilies; if your cat eats them, she may die. Speaking of dying, avoid white snakeroot like the plague. Botanists believe it was this

plant, which looks much like Queen Anne’s Lace, that caused the “milk sickness” that killed Nancy Hanks Lincoln and which also kills livestock. Among those classified as “dangerous,” are trees, grasses, weeds and shrubs that can cause serious allergies: the olive tree, Bermuda grass and that perennial nemesis, ragweed. Also watch out for flowers that can wreak havoc: lily of the valley, tulips, hyacinths and even chrysanthemums. Or how about Jimson weed, also known as datura? A member of the nightshade family, Jimson weed flourished on Jamestown Island, where the ill-fated and hungry colonists tried adding it to their diets. Many died in terrible agony; others went crazy for a while. Stewart tells the story of a Canadian woman, who in modern times, added Jimson weed seeds to her hamburger, under the mistaken impression they were a seasoning. Those little black seeds put her into a coma for 24 hours. Better stick to pepper! But not all peppers are safe. Among those plants that Stewart classifies as “painful” is the habanero chili, whose heat levels approach one million Scoville units. Loosely translated, this means that for every unit of habanero chili you consume, it would take 1 million units of water to entirely quench the fire that burns your eyes and throat, numbs your face, and may even put you into respiratory distress. Also in the “painful” fam-

thought it looked fun, so he picked began playing and loved it. Soon after, he decided to learn to play the guitar. About two years ago, he asked his granddaughter, Taryn Comegys, then 5, what instrument she wanted to learn to play, and out of nowhere she said ukulele. Perry decided to learn so he could teach Comegys. Now Perry and his granddaughter often perform together at the Waverly Elementary School lunches. They are also going to perform at a Christmas show for Mercy Hospice this year. Perry took to the stage at the Everhart Museum May 14 with his group, The Steamtown Ramblers. With

the Ramblers, he plays banjo and bandmates Pete Rozdilski and Bill Clark play the guitar. The group formed three years ago when they noticed they have a common interest in folk music. “Every time we play at a new venue it’s a new experience and there are new challenges to face. At the Everhart we played outside so there was a lot of ambient noise. We finally hit our stride about a third of the way through,” he explained. Perry usually performs at Mercy Hospice twice each week. He visits rooms of residents of all ages and asks if they would like company. He then talks to them and plays whatever type of music they request. He can play Italian, Russian, Polishand Irish music. “I tailor what I play for each person. I like to remind people of happier, healthier times with my music, because hearing is the last sense that people lose,” said Perry. “Music is something that brings people together. I believe it has a therapeutic value,” said Perry. The Waverly resident said he loves what he does. He believes it is better to not ask for money because volunteer work is much more rewarding.

ily are our old friends, the “terrible toxicodendrons,” poison ivy, oak and sumac. And watch out for stinging nettles and that nasty little beast, the jumping cholla. Brush up against one of these species, and it’s “Ow, ow, OW!” When you take your dog for a walk, plants with burrs can hurt both you and your bushy -tailed buddy. The foxtail is particularly unpleasant. It embeds its seed heads in your dog’s skin, and thanks to a bacterium they contain, these foxtails can actually worm their way into Fido’s brain, lungs and spinal chord. Yuck! You will read with fascination about arrow poisons, ordeal poisons used to determine if an unlucky suspect is innocent or guilty, botanical crime families, weeds of mass destruction and carnivorous plants. There’s also a chapter on poisonous mushrooms, even though, strictly speaking, mushrooms are not plants, but fungi. However, since Stewart tells us that poison centers in the United States get more than 7,000 calls per year about mushroom poisoning, and since many mushrooms are deadly, I was glad that she included a chapter on fatal fungi, including the Death Cap, False Morel, Fly Mushroom and the infamous Inky Caps, which will make you violently ill only if you consume them along with alcohol. Stewart offers some good, common-sense advice on how to avoid unpleasant encounters with plants. Above all, don’t experiment with unfamiliar plants, especially plants found in the wild. If you don’t know exactly what you’re dealing with, don’t pick, eat, smoke or stroke them. Take precautions: wear gloves when you garden; keep small children and pets away from houseplants; and above all, don’t believe everything you read about using plants on the Internet. Stewart strongly suggests that we ask garden centers to label poisonous, edible, and medicinal plants. Generally, this doesn’t happen, and as a result, it’s far too easy for us to buy flowers, shrubs, trees and even vegetables that could harm us. Obvi-

ously, if you have a bad encounter with a plant, don’t dawdle -call a poison control center at once! If by now you’re saying “Ewww…only a weirdo would want to read this book,” let me assure you that, in addition to being fascinating, informative and well-written, “Wicked Plants” is also a beautifully -designed book. Just looking at it will make you happy. From its poisonously green hard cover adorned with black and gold scroll work suggestive of a formal garden maze, to the warm brown, buff, and sepia color scheme of its pages, “Wicked Plants” delights the eye as well as the mind. In addition to pages that are shaded in a way that looks as if they’d been lightly sponged with loam, there are beautiful plant drawings by Jonathon Rosen and funny, bizarre etchings by Briony Morrow-Cribbs. Stewart is quick to point out that the etcher “shares her name with a wicked plant.” Briony is a vine with “red berries that cause vomiting, dizziness, and even respiratory failure,” and all plants in the Bryonia genus are poisonous to humans and animals. If after reading “Wicked Plants,” you are hungry for more, the author obligingly provides a short directory of “poison gardens,” two of which are within a day’s driving distance. The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia boasts a medicinal garden and Cornell University houses the W.C. Muenscher Poisonous Plants Garden in its veterinary school in Ithaca, N.Y. You also can visit www.wickedplants.com for links to data bases of poisonous plants and photos, and there’s a decent bibliography for those of you who want to learn more about the monsters of the vegetable kingdom. However good these books may be, you’ll be missing a wonderful read if you pass up “Wicked Plants.” Jane Julius Honchell, who resides in Glenburn Twp., is a well-known features writer and columnist.

gust 2. Two will take place at the Dalton Streamside Park ( Tues., June14 and Tuesday, Aug. 2); all other programs are planned for the library. Registration is scheduled for all day Monday, June13 at the library. And at that time you can find the complete schedule for the entire program. Youngsters entering 4, 5 and 6 graders are invited to challenge their reading skills with the Jr. Battle of the Books. The participants will meet at11a.m. on Thursdays from July14 to August 4. The finale, the Jr. Battle of the Books competition, is scheduled for Thursday, August 18 at 5:30 p.m. at the Mall at Steamtown. See Janet Geeza at the library for information about the book list ( It includes tales of adventure, wilderness survival, and the tale of a magical gift for chocolate ) and the dates for the discussion of each book. Students entering grades 7-12 haven’t been forgotten. They have the chance to create a team for the Sr. Battle of the Books (competition Thursday, August 4, 5:30 p.m. at the Mall at Steamtown). See Janet Geeza at the library for more details. We’d love to have a team to represent our library at the Mall. Some of the adult activities (Mah Jong and Saturday Spotlight) will take a summer break. Mah Jong will resume in September, as will Saturday Spotlight, the adult book discussion group. Watch this column for the start-up dates. However, bridge will probably continue every Tuesday morning ( there are now 4 tables of bridge players!) And there’s a special chess class for the summer months; on June 21, at 2 p.m, chess lessons for beginners will be offered. Remember to check out our library’s blog; the latest edition contains instructions to help you request a book from inter-library loan if you can’t find the book within the Lackawanna County Library System. The steps include instructions to see if the book is available through ACCESS PA and then, if it is, you may request it through inter-library loan. That’s it for now. And, as Gene Kelly would sing, “may the sun be in your heart.”

It’s time for this month’s column and truly, all I can think about and see is “rain.” I keep hearing the words of Shel Silverstein’s poem about rain and think I just have “the slishyslosh of rain in my brain.” Undoubtedly, it’s time for Gene Kelly to intervene with a verse or two of “Singin in the Rain.” Fortunately, since the last time we “met,” despite the soggy weather, our library has had many visitors. On April16, we had our semi-annual book and bake sale. Even that dreary day, the aisles of the lower floor of the library were full of book lovers, young and old, hunting for favorite authors and titles. And the children, after finding a few special items, always managed to edge their parents towards the goodies table and who can resist the begging eyes of a little one? Fortunately, most parents can’t! Everything about the event was successful and we’re delighted that so many ventured out and could find a treasure to read or to eat And then last Saturday, May 14, the Friends held their annual Herb and Perennial Festival. Len Janus kept everyone’s attention as he lectured on growing herbs and their uses. Did you know that you can substitute lovage for celery? Or that the flowers on herbs are edible? The plants disappeared quite quickly and each basket winner was delighted to go home with an unexpected prize. Thanks to all who attended and all who made this event possible. The Friends are most grateful for your support. Of course, all these events support our very busy library. And, it will continue to a buzz with activities during the summer months. Although the Tuesday story hours for pre-schoolers will be “on vacation,” there will be a children’s reading program ( wee ones up to age 12) called “One World, Many Stories.” Janet Geeza has developed all the details and for the most part, youngsters will explore various aspects of Egyptian and Chinese cultures ( Egyptian Dance with Diana Shahein and Chinese Hong Bao with our own library director, Shu Qiu), music ( Robert M. Sides Music Co.) Yoga and drumming. All these programs will occur on Mondays and Tuesdays from June13 to Au-

OBITUARY Students excel at Envirothon

Monsignor Kevin Patrick O’Neill, a resident of Little Flower Manor, died May 16 at Hospice Community Care in Dunmore. Monsignor O’Neill, son of the late Lawrence F. and Mary P. Manley O’Neill, was born in Avoca on Oct. 26, 1951. He received his early education at Cathedral Grammar School and Cathedral High School. He graduated from The University of Scranton in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science in psychology. He attended the North American College in Rome and received his STB from Gregorian University in Rome in 1976. He was ordained to the priesthood on July 10, 1977, in St. Gregory’s Church, Clarks Green, by the Most Rev. James C. Timlin, D.D., bishop emeritus of Scranton. Monsignor O’Neill served as an assistant pastor at Our Lady of the Snows, Clarks Summit; and as a resident at Immaculate Conception, Scranton; St. Catherine of Siena, Moscow; Holy Rosary, Scranton; St. Mary’s, Avoca; and St. Eulalia’s, Elmhurst, during the summers while working on his graduate studies in canon law. Monsignor O’Neill received a Doctorate in Canon Law from the Gregorian University in Rome. He served as administrator of St. Therese Parish, Shavertown, before being appointed as pastor. He was also pastor of St. John the Evangelist, St. Casimir and St. Joseph’s in Pittston and St. John’s in Bushkill.

In addition to his parochial duties, Monsignor O’Neill served on the liturgical commission and as moderator of Engaged Encounter.

CLARKS SUMMIT - The Abington Heights team of Michael Smertz and Mark Van Nort put together an impressive comeback to make the District 2-4 Class AAA boys’ tennis doubles tournament championship match where they settled for the silver medal with a 5-7, 7-5, 6-1 loss to Wyoming Valley West’s Steve Brand and Tyler Ryman Friday. Scranton Prep’s Will Cognetti and Walker Temperton also produced a second-place finish in the District 2 Class AA tournament held May 19 and 20. The entire tournament was moved from Kirby Park to the indoor courts at Birchwood Racquet Club in Clarks Summit because of weather. Facing a 5-1 deficit and match point in the third set of their semifinal, Smertz-Van Nort rallied for a 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 7-6 (7-3) victory over Jersey Shore’s Alex Clemento-

WILKES-BARRE- The Abington Heights High School volleyball team gave the fans that made the trip to Holy Redeemer High School a reason to cheer, when the Comets came from behind to defeat Western Wayne 3-2 in the first round of the District 2 playoffs May 23. The Comets started the afternoon strong, winning the first game 25-16. But the team quickly fell into a hole, losing the second and third games 25-11 and 25-23. “We started pretty good with the first game, the second two games we relaxed,” said head coach Dan Phillips. “I think we thought we had the match in hand, and you get a little bit lax, and they started getting aggressive, the momentum swings to their side…and that’s what happens.” “Fourth game we pulled the composure back in, went back to playing Abington volleyball… got more aggressive swinging, and everything kind of fell into place.” Phillips added that the team was not surprised that the 10-2, fourth-seeded Wildcats were able to squeak out two wins over the 13-3, fifth-seeded Comets. The two teams met earlier in the season at the Tunkhannock High School tournament, and even though Abington Heights bested the Wildcats 2-1, they knew coming into Monday’s game that Western Wayne was going to be a tough opponent. “They have a great coach, Tim Snider, he actually coached Forest City when I was in high school, and he always has a playoff team, and he’ll take a good team and make them great,” said Phillips.

Passion for the game fuels junior CLARKS SUMMIT - Cailey Ware’s passion for playing softball began in kindergarten when she stepped on to a baseball diamond for the first time. Those initial roots for her love of the game were embedded in the T-ball fields of South Abington Twp. and Clarks Summit. That foundation has grown and blossomed into a career at Abington Heights High School that the 17-year-old junior said she is proud of, as her team prepares for the post season. “I had to learn and we had to learn to be good as a team and work with each other,” Ware said. “We win as a team and we lose as a team.” Winning has come easier this year for a squad that has practiced hard. The Lady Comets appear to be primed to make a run in the playoffs behind head coach John Kelly and assistants Mike and Vic Thomas. The coaching staff seems to know what they found in Ware when she first suited up for them her freshman year in 2009. She was used as a pinch runner that season on the varsity
