Pallman Farms strawberry season 1511 Summit Lake Road, South Abington Township For more than 20 years, area residents have been visiting Pallman Farms to pick a fresh summer treat. “It’s one of the early Pennsylvania crops that comes in,” explained Bruce Pallman. “People come out for the experience to pick their own produce.” The strawberry season at Pallmans typically lasts about three weeks, from

mid-June through the Fourth of July weekend. This year’s season started June 16. For pickers at Pallmans, the cost is $1.35 per pound. There are also prepicked strawberries for $4.50 per quart. Picking is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 pm. For more information of Pallman

CLARKS SUMMIT – A memorial race planned for July 16 will allow family and friends a means to celebrate the life of a young girl who was “absolute sunshine” to them. The Kristyn E. Kromko Memorial Scholarship Race will be held on that date, beginning at 9 a.m. at Baptist Bible College and Seminary in Clarks Summit. Kromko died in an automobile accident when she was 16, just three weeks after she earned her driver’s license. The crash took place on Route 307 on April 26, 2010. Kristyn lived in Clarks Summit with her brother, Brandon Kromko, 20, and their parents, Joseph and Roberta Kromko. Both siblings attended Abington Heights High School. After the accident, her family started a scholarship there of $1,000 in her honor. The first recipient was Elena DeSoto.

Dog can give ‘hope’

PennDOT: All lanes open on Layton BY SHAUNA MCNALLY Abington Journal Reporter

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. It has been two years since the “Notice to Proceed” papers were signed for the bridge project on Layton Road near U.S. Routes 6 and 11 in South Abington Township. And now it is about to be completed. According to James May, district press officer for PennDOT, the project is mostly done, and the road is back to normal. When the “Notice to Proceed” was signed July 6, 2009, the expected date for the project to be done was April 27, 2011, but drilling problems occurred, which moved the date 75 days to July 11, according to May. The expected cost of the project was $2.3 million, but with the extension and the drilling problems, it will actually total more than $2.5 million. All three lanes on the bridge were opened Tuesday, June 28. May said PennDOT has to finalize last-minute details by July 11. Another bridge in the area recently had some work done as well. On the bridge of the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Route 476) over Routes 6 and 11 in Clarks Summit, a hole opened up in the southbound right lane. Bill Capone, Director of Communications at the Turnpike Commission, said, “Drivers need to know that the bridge is still safe. Potholes occur sometimes on bridges. This is not a structural issue, it’s an issue with the deck.” Capone further explained that there is also wooden decking underneath the bridge to prevent debris from falling on the road. He said the deck is set to be replaced in about a year and a half. The Turnpike Commission is monitoring the issue to make sure it does not worsen. Turnpike employees were fixing the pothole June 28 as well.

Volunteer Kathi Platt said she was inspired to organize a fundraiser there that would showcase the shelter and incorporate the Latin- inspired workout routine Zumba. “It was chosen for the fundraiser because it’s a different type of workout that wasn’t boring. It’s just dancing. You walk out feeling alive, happy and sweating and you want more after the hour,” Platt said.

CLARKS SUMMIT – Kate Andrews, adoption coordinator at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, thinks one of their dogs, who has had one leg amputated, can give people hope when they see what she has overcome. “I think she can be a great inspiration for people who may have to go through the same thing,” she said. “People can be uplifted by these animals.” Sienna, a10-year old female pitbull, is available for adoption at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, 967 Griffin Pond Rd. Sienna had successful surgery to amputate her hind leg in 2008, after she contracted a cancerous tumor. Andrews said that although Sienna may be missing a leg, she is living a normal, healthy life. “She does very well with three legs,” Andrews said. “She is in good shape and is at an ideal weight.” Andrews added that the dog will let you know when she is tired during a walk. “She will stop walking, turn around and look at you to turn back,” she said. When Sienna’s previous owners were getting divorced and moving out of their residence, they decided to solicit a good home. Unfortunately, the new owners only kept the dog for 24 to 48 hours before bringing her to the shelter about eight weeks ago. Sienna is not fond of dogs, but

is very compatible with and enjoys the company of cats. She is also housebroken, spayed and is up to date on most vaccinations except for a rabies shot. Andrews noted it is important that the dog stay at her present weight to avoid extra stress on her three legs. She also said that despite the deformity, the dog does not require any special care beyond a soft quilt or bed. “The loss of her leg doesn’t really affect her daily living,” Andrews said. “Dogs and cats are resilient. They live very well with amputations.” Andrews said the shelter will have about one dog or cat each year come in with an amputation. “The animal stands out as unique,” she said. “There is always that ‘aw’ factor and people feel sorry for them.” Sienna is ideal for someone who needs a dog who is easy to walk. “She is gentle on the leash,” Andrews said. The dog should be compatible with children six and older, as long as they and steady on their feet and know they might have to be gentle with her. Andrews encouraged people to consider adopting older dogs. “They have a lot of great qualities,” she said. “You don’t have to deal with the chewing and craziness of a puppy. They make for a great companion and they don’t need a lot of exercise besides light walking.” Senior citizens can adopt the pet for a special price of $15. For everyone else, the cost is $50.

As a thespian, he went on to roles in prime time television shows and movies, respectively, including “Star Trek,” NBC’s “Richard Boone Show,” “The Outer Limits,” “Twilight Zone,” “Mission: Impossible,” and “The Barefoot Contessa” with Humphrey Bogart, among numerous others. Stevens said, “I don’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be an actor. I suppose I’ve always wanted to act.” While in high school, “I don’t was remember Stevens given a leada time ing role in an operetta diwhen I by didn’t want rected Virginia to be an Rushmore.

MurClarks Summit phy and Gusnative tav Yeager. Stevens recalled that he, Fred Gabriel and Bob Dibble called themselves “The Three Musketeers” because of their close friendship. All three were on the football team, the yearbook staff and “The Aorta,” which was the school newspaper. Stevens was also a proud member of the fencing team. After high school, Stevens joined the Navy and attended the Naval Academy. While there he met Bob Porterfield, who owned the Barter Theatre in Virginia. Stevens then decided to take his desire to act seriously. After starting at the Barter Theatre, he attended the Neighborhood Playhouse of New York on a scholarship. However, he had to interrupt his career to serve as a pilot in World War II. Stevens said has written a book about his life, primarily for his children, which he would like to see published. The actor thinks it would intrigue a lot of people because it comes from a man who has worked with almost everyone of his generation in Hollywood. Stevens said that when he lived in Clarks Summit it was a quiet little town with horses the dominant means of transportation. He recalled two hardware stores: Edward’s and Bunnell’s. Stevens was happy to hear Bunnell’s was still in business, because he was friends with second generation owner Loyal Bunnell. The last time Stevens was in Clarks Summit about 15 years ago, he said he was amazed at all of the changes through the main part of town, but he thought where he lived still looked the same. At the time, he and some of his family members were visiting Philadelphia, rented a car, and headed north on the Pa .Turnpike. Stevens has three sons, two in southern California, and one in San Francisco. Stevens’ advice to all aspiring actors is, “First of all, pursue your dream. Don’t let anything deter you from that. And as far as the actual performing aspect is concerned, for me, economy has been key. Less is best.”

DALTON - At the Dalton Borough Council meeting held June 9, Lackawanna Trail students Jesse Morvan and Richard Pollock performed the national anthem with the instruments that helped them become state champions. Cornet player Jesse Morvan won second place for Best Cornet Player of the State. Tenor saxophone player Richard Pollock won first place for Best Tenor Saxophone Player of the State. In other business, Lackawanna Trail High School boys basketball coach Andrew Kettel asked the board for use of the Dalton Streamside Park for a three-on-three basketball tournament in conjunction with the Dalton Firemen’s Carnival July 16. He mentioned that the tournament will be for boys and girls spanning from grades five through 12. He said he and his assistant coach at Lackawanna Trail will run the tournament. “The money raised from the three-on-three tournament will go toward our program, and we do all kinds of things throughout the season for our players,” he said. Kettel also requested to rent a pavilion facility to have a stand for water and Gatorade along with an area to do some bookkeeping. “I think it would be a great day. We will start around nine o’clock in the morning,” said Kettel. “The kids will get a minimum of three games and we take the top four teams per playoff. We’ll have Tshirts for the players along with some trophies that we’ll give out to the winners.” Dalton board president Bill Salva told Kettel he needs to ask the Dalton Fire Company permission to have the tournament. Firefighter Mark Sujkowski said, “The carnival doesn’t kick off until 6 o’clock (p.m.). I did mention the idea to our president. He talked to various board members. There were no real problems at our end.” In other business, Solicitor Frank Bolock reported that the Department of Community Economic Development approved the board’s loan proceedings for paving the roads at Huntington Woods. Bolock also mentioned that he delivered the paving contract to WACO, the paving contractor. “They’re in the process of pulling together their bonding and insurance requirements,” said Bolock. “We should have the contract signed by next week.” He also mentioned that they will have a paving schedule soon. In new business, board member Lorraine Daniels mentioned that she wants anyone having a yard sale on weekends to refrain from placing unsold items out for collection a week prior to garbage pickup on Fridays. People are asked to clean any unsold items and then place them outside 24 hours prior to garbage collection day. Daniels also mentioned that Mayor James Gray and Dalton Business Professional Association president Gail Rees presented two scholarships to two Dalton students. Daniels acknowledged Aylana Craig-Lucas and Emma Peters, who earned the scholarships. . Bill Salva congratulated the two students.

FACTORYVILLE - At the Factoryville Borough Council meeting held June 8, resident Ed Novakowski, who lives on Lindley Avenue, complained about getting water in his basement from flooding. Councilman Bill Edwards explained that it is caused by need for a new steel pipe on Lindley Avenue. Its existing plastic pipe is filled with rocks and the water is not flowing to the creek. He also said that there is also a lack of catch basins on Reynolds Street. Community development director Liz Ratchford said that she called State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich about a ballpark price to fix Lindley Avenue and Reynolds Street. “If you put the two packages together, you’re talking over $50,000, just ballpark,” she said. Ratchford also said that Kavulich’s representative will try to find money from H20 PA, which includes help from storm water programs. “That would be 50 percent if there’s any money left in the program. If he can find us money, he’ll find it, and he’ll push for us to get it.” Manager Mary Ellen Buckbee mentioned a quote for $3,100 to install soil on the right side of Reynolds Street, compact material, clean out debris from the existing pipes and install blacktop curbing at Reynolds and Lindley. “My recommendation right now is to choose the first couple priorities on the Reynolds

Street issue because I think the Lindley Street is more urgent, and see if the first couple remedies on the Reynolds situation alleviate the problem enough where we can wait until more money becomes available for storm water grants,” said Buckbee. The board agreed to allow their engineer, Bob Doble, to review Reynolds Street and Lindley Avenue . Ratchford mentioned that she talked with Doble on the phone many times and she had a contract grant for President Chuck Wrobel to sign. In a few months, the board will have a report from them with all the problems listed and a priority schedule as part of the Going Greener Storm Water Project. In her community development report, Ratchford also said that PennDot will install the new inlet and pipes. “The pipe will go a different route—a better route—to get to the creek,” she said. “They (PennDot) agreed they’ll do the installation if we pay for all the materials.” Ratchford said that PennDot wanted the board to get permission from Drake Well Drilling Inc. and Aqua Pennsylvania and noted that she sent permission forms to both companies. “Drake already signed his. Aqua had to go back to the company so that it could be signed by the president of the company but the engineer didn’t think there would be a problem with that,” said Ratchford.

C.S. equestrian shop puts a bridle on costs BY SAMANTHA RANEILLI Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT – Helmets, saddle blankets and bridles are equipment that a rider of horses needs . Most of these can be purchased at a new shop, Divine Equine, located at 700 N. State St in Clarks Summit. With her store specializing in English and Western wear, owner Gretchen Wydeen said she hopes to attract riders of all ages. The shop opened last weekend and business has been blooming, said Wydeen. “With so many riding stables around the area, it’s good to have a local business to help with equipment,” said Wydeen. Divine Equine works like a consignment shop. People drop off clean, brand new or secondhand equipment, set a price for it and receive part of the earnings once equipment is sold. “It’s good for the area and it’s good for people, because riding equipment can be expensive,” said Wydeen. Growing up on a farm and working on a farm has shown Wydeen how expensive riding equipment can be. Various websites have saddles priced at more than $1,000 and bridles at more than $300. Divine Equine

AH board begins grievance discussions BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT - The Abington Heights School District and Abington Heights Educational Association have been unable to settle a grievance concerning the Introductory Chinese course offered to students in grades seven through 12. The grievance was the topic of discussion during the Abington Heights School Board meeting June 22. The district was able to provide the class for the first time during the 2010-11 school year as a result of a partnership with The University of Scranton, which has been working with China’s Henan College of Education. The college sent two teachers to the area, with one, Xiaojing

(Irene) Wang, teaching at Abington Heights. Because Wang is not a bargaining unit member, the association filed a grievance and unfair labor practice against the district. The district offered the association a settlement that guaranteed as long as they are offering the course no other teachers in the foreign language department will be furloughed and the district will never, in any way, use this matter in the future for any purpose against the union. “Those terms were not enough for the association, they wanted to add on to that, that we had to agree that at the end of this school year (201112) if the program were to continue, which we highly think is unlikely, we had to have a bar-

gaining unit member teach the class,” said Superintendent Michael Mahon. Despite Mahon’s feeling that the program was unlikely to continue past the 2011-12 school year, the term was not added, and now both parties awaiting a hearing date. The issue of the grievance first came up during the board’s work session, held June 1, in a heated argument that resulted in Mahon and Abington Heights Educational Association President Marcelle Genovese agreeing that from now on, during each meeting, in the superintendent’s report there will be a public discussion of grievances filed by the association. Mahon will be working in chronological order, backward, from the grievance most re-

cently filed. On Wednesday, in addition to discussing the Chinese course, Mahon also discussed grievance 10:07, which is the latest grievance filed. It was filed on behalf of the middle school team teachers who claim to have lost individual planning time due to Dr. Clyde Colwell’s Thematic Implementation Meeting times and dates for the 2010-11 school year. The action also covers curriculum work ordered by Dr. Colwell for middle school teachers and not compensated by the district. Mahon compared the grievance with grievance 09:09 that was filed on behalf of a group of English teachers at Abington Heights High School who claimed to have lost daily planning time during the 2009-10

Scranton native retires Jack J. Lewis retired June 22 as press secretary for the Pennsylvania State Police, a position he has held for the past14 years. Lewis, 60, of Elizabethtown, joined State Police in April 1997. A native of Scranton, Lewis is a1969 graduate of West Scranton High School and1973 graduate of Temple University, Philadelphia. Lewis is married to the former Liz Garber, . He has a daughter, two stepdaughters, a grandson and three step grandchildren. Lewis is the son of Dale Lewis of Clarks Green and the late Jack Lewis.

teachers. Genovese responded, saying that the Thematic Implementation Meetings dealt mainly with curriculum writing, which is what led the filing of the grievance. “The district is well aware in our contract there is a section that says if you’re going to ask teachers to do curriculum work you, one, give them compensation, or, two, release them from their duties from that day, or, three, provide credits on the salary scale. The district did not provide any credits on the salary scale, did not release them from the day, and, therefore, we asked that they be compensated,” said Genovese. The discussion on grievances will continue during the board’s meeting scheduled for July 20.

Save-A-Life award benefits A.H. student

Abington Heights High School student Kaitlyn Kulp, a junior and member of SADD: Students Against Destructive Decisions, received a $1,000 scholarship award from Kevin Cleary, President of Save-A-Life. Save-ALife Lackawanna County is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting suicide awareness by raising money for scholarships for high school students who promote such education in their schools and communities. Additional goals of the group are to financially assist local families who have been directly affected by a suicide. An invitation was sent to all area schools to conduct some type of suicide awareness within their school district. The ideas were to

JERMYN- At the Lakeland school board meeting held June 22, the school directors unanimously accepted, in a 7-0 vote, the resignation of Lakeland High School girls soccer coach Joseph Kovaleski, according to superintendent Dr. Margaret Billings-Jones. The board also approved a $17.1 million budget for the upcoming school year. Kovaleski had also served as a substitute maintenance person at the school. Police charged Kovaleski, a Scott Township resident, with indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct after he allegedly exposed himself inside a Burger King restaurant in Dickson City. The coach, 61, was charged May 29 and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 29 at 9:45 a.m. Regarding the annual budget,

property taxes will remain at 91 mills. One Mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. The board was able to avoid a budget increase by reducing costs not directly affecting student programming, according to Dr. Billings-Jones. Another method by which she said they avoided an increase was by choosing not to replace two of the three faculty positions open after retirements the board accepted this year. Lakeland Elementary thirdgrade teacher Kathleen Hryhorcoff and sixth-grade teacher Sue Reuther are retiring but will not be replaced. The only teacher replaced will be Lakeland High School reading tutor Ann Marie Salitski. In other business, the board accepted James Civirotto from Lake Wallenpaupack as the new assistant principal.

When the program is over he said he hopes to come away with better language skills and a better understanding of the culture that he’s had a large interest in for the last five years. “I think if he goes into it with an open mind, he’ll really like it and it will have a profound impact on him,” said Wojcik. The scholarship began in 2006, and according to Wojcik, Fitzpatrick is the first Abington Heights High School student to be awarded it, but his parents Jack and Mary are hoping he won���t be the last. “He’s been so fortunate to be awarded this scholarship, and I think it’s important that other students are aware of this opportunity especially in light of education cuts,” said Mary. In addition to high school students, scholarships are available for undergraduates and graduate students.

Douglas A. Craig Sr., 82, of Clarks Summit, died Monday, June 20, in Regional Hospital of Scranton. His wife of 42 years, Marilyn Holdsworth, died Aug. 10, 2001. Born June 7, 1929, in Scranton, son of the late Douglas F. and Jean R. Ralston Craig, he was a lifelong resident of Clarks Summit and a 1948 graduate of Clarks Summit High School. He honorably served in the Air Force during the Korean War. Before retiring, he was employed by Weston Controls, Archbald, as a machinist in the machine repairs department, where he worked for more than 30 years. He was also employed by Clarks Summit Police Department for more than 20 years as a part-time patrolman. As a patrolman, he worked the Saturday night dances at Clarks Summit Methodist Church and Sunday mornings, helping people cross the street in front of Our Lady of the Snows Church. During his retirement, he delivered flowers for White’s Country Floral, Clarks Summit, and was a regular at Stanik’s Mower Service, Clarks Summit, supervising and helping with deliveries, where he was known as Pops.

During his retirement with his wife, he enjoyed his wintering in Florida and after the loss of his wife he continued to winter in Florida and could be found poolside enjoying the sunniest days. Doug was a daily patron of the Sun Rise Café; his friends looked forward to his daily visits sharing local news and would always leave the room saying “See you tomorrow, God willing the creek don’t rise.” Surviving are three sons, Douglas Jr. and wife, Sandra, Clarks Summit; Jeffrey, Scranton; and James, Archbald; and three grandchildren, Amanda Craig, Justus; Evann and Jared Craig, Clarks Summit.

At the end of the week, students’ families and friends were treated to their original production “Worlds Meet in Banana Universe.” The play was excellent. How could it not be, with unique characters including Blue Spider, Mr. Donut, Witch Pirate, Flower Clown, Othellus and the Bunny of Doom? If your child is interested in the theater arts, register him or her for our next Acting Camp for Kids, which will be held during the week of July 25 to 29. These camps always show me how much participating in the theater arts builds children’s confidence. Students were also able to experience the digital arts last week at the Dietrich. One of our favorite visiting artists, Rand Whipple of Box of Light Theatre, was with us for Crazy Commercials Camp and Digital Arts Camp. Both camps were filled with just the most creative minds. In Crazy Commercials, students became experts in creating digital film. They learned about framing a shot, editing, creating sound effects and using special effects. One group of girls created a short film about the “Strawberry Ninjas.” Another group created a short called “The Attack of the Big Sister.” A few students also pitched a product called “Face Fuzz.” In Digital Arts Camp, children also created a host of projects. Students learned how to build and program LEGO robots. They created claymation films and made digital films and music videos. In addition to camps, the Dietrich Children’s Theatre premiered its latest production, “Coyote: A Native American Trickster Tale,” this past weekend. On Friday, more than 100 children and families

GREELEY- This summer, Local actor Bob Hughes will again take a look at the life of his late friend, playwright and actor Jason Miller. Greeley Inn Summer Theatre will present the play “Go Irish! The Purgatory Diaries of Jason Miller,” as well as an Evening of One-Act Comedies from July 2 to August 31. “Go Irish!” is a one man play about the life of Jason Miller, the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of “That Championship Season,” recently revived on Broadway in 2011, and Academy Award nominated actor for “The Exorcist”. Hughes said that the revival of the play allows him to continue to workshop it and add nuance to the performance. He has been acting in the role for several years and said that he is starting to refine his skills. According to a review of his performance in March 2011, his work has paid off. Jack Shaw, a director, actor and writer, said of his performance, “You come to expect a pattern in theater, especially in drama, but sometimes, theatre breaks the pattern. This is one of those

times”. Hughes described “Go Irish!” as “a cautionary tale of the pitfalls of celebrity.” In the play, directed by Suzanne Ford, the Triple NEPTA award -winning actress, the Jason Miller walks the audience humorously through Purgatory, his shattered career and retiring home to Scranton. Hughes says that he feels some pressure acting in this role. “Miller was my friend and I carry the weight on my back,” said Hughes. Featured in this summer theatre program are two oneact comedies starring Hughes and Ford. The first, “It’s A Sin To Tell A Lie,” was written by Miller. It is about an elderly couple meeting in a doctor’s office who become friends. “Miller’s sense of language is poetic. ‘It’s A Sin To Tell A Lie’ is a charming play,” said Hughes. The second one-act comedy, “Johnny and Wilma,” is a comedy with types, in this case a married couple, according to Hughes. “He’s an ex-Marine going through an emotional crisis, and she’s an over-achieving womanwho is more confident than he,” said Hughes.

Local actor Bob Hughes will portray late friend Jason Miller, shown above, this month in “Go Irish! The Purgatory Diaries of Jason Miller” at the Greeley Inn Summer Theatre.

These plays will be performed at the Greeley Inn, a place that has not seen a play attempted until now, according to Hughes. It has a proscenium stage that has been used for mostly musical theater or music performance, said Hughes. “We like to go to where the people are,” said Hughes. “Milford comes alive in the summer, which is why we are going there”. All shows are Wednesdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., and every other Saturday, beginning July 2 at 8 p.m.

In addition to designing buildings for colleges, universities and government offices across the country, Bohlin is known for designing the Apple Computer stores. “When we were thinking about the concept of home, we were thinking about the people who use the idea of what home is in their work,” said Fisher Staples. “He’s a wonderful speaker, and he’ll be talking about how people relate to space, how space defines people, and how people define the spaces where they live and work.” Bohlin will be joined by United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser, architect and writer Witold Rybczynski and writers Craig Nova, Susan Cooper, Sarah Rossbach, Karen Blomain and Craig Czury. Fisher Staples said she is excited about this year’s lineup, and feels they will help the conference continue its streak of bringing in artists who do more than just lecture. “One of the things we fotime.

With Jane Julius Honchell SEE JANE READ

Deep-six that laptop; it may be out to get you. Maybe you can’t judge a book by its cover, but a book’s cover usually gives prospective readers some idea of what’s in store for them. In the case of Daniel H. Wilson’s thought-provoking novel “Robopocalypse,” the cover is both attention-grabbing and unsettling, with its extreme close-up of the shiny plastic carapace of a robot’s face. This unsmiling, redeyed visage lets us know immediately that we’re not going to encounter winsome R2-D2s or cute little Robbie the Robot types in this story. Although I have trouble pronouncing the title (Just try saying “Robopocalypse” three times, fast!), I have no problem in pronouncing Wilson’s suspenseful and fright-

ening tale a mostly satisfying summer read. You will burn through this book faster than ultraviolet rays can penetrate your sun block. Set in a nottoo-distant future in which robots and all things computerized, guided by an implacable artificial intelligence named Archos, try to take over the world, “Robopocalypse” will make you see your cell phone, S.U.V. and laptop in a new and unsettling way. Structured in five partslike the five acts in a Greek tragedy, “Robopocalypse” takes us on a global odyssey that includes stops in Boston, New York, London, Afghanistan, Japan, Oklahoma and Alaska. In these far-flung locales, we witness the first intimations that the machines

we control have begun to control us, and later see small pockets of humans rally to fight back during the three-year war that pits the formidable Archos and the machines it commands against a disparate band of humans. We learn of this war after the fact, via a written record compiled by the main narrator, Cormac “Bright Boy” Wallace. The narration that Cormac cobbles together is an ingenious device, since it allows the story to be told from the perspectives of many of the characters we meet early on in the book. Even though we know from the first chapter that the humans have prevailed, the story manages to be nail-bitingly suspenseful. My favorite section is the first, titled “Isolated Incidents,” which provides the basic exposition. A domestic robot, known as a “Big Happy,” runs riot in a frozen yogurt shop in Oklahoma. A robotic “love doll” attacks her adoring owner, Takeo Nomura, in Tokyo. In Afghanistan, Specialist Paul Blanton is traumatized when the safety and pacification robot he directs contravenes its programming and opens fire with an AK-47. Ten-year-old Mathilda Perez, daughter of Senator Laura Perez of Pennsylvania, gets a scary mess-

age from her Baby-ComesAlive doll. In London, Lurker, a pimply 17-year-old who plays tricks on people via phone, finds himself hunted by cell phones when he unwittingly makes contact with Archos. Archos is a terrifying entity, yet its goal is pure. Using the voice of a small boy, he tells his creator, Professor Nichols Wasserman, “I will cultivate life. I will protect the knowledge locked inside living things. I will save the world from you.” Archos sees humans as obsolete “killing machines,” and by helping robots and other machines evolve into thinking machines, Archos believes he will make the world a better place. Perhaps he has a point, but he underestimates the human urge to survive. Throughout history, when faced with extinction or enslavement, humans have found devious means of resistance, and in “Robopocalypse,” unlikely combinations of individuals band together to fight back. Much of the pleasure of this book stems from seeing how these knots of human resistance form, find ways of communicating with each other, and ultimately, despite their differences, manage to work together to repair the damaged fabric of humanity.

WWW.THEABINGTONJOURNAL.COM

As anyone who is a fan of sci-fi or fantasy fiction will recognize, “Robopocalypse” leans heavily on the plot devices perfected by earlier writers. Following the lead of Stephen King’s “The Stand,” and Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” in which intrepid bands of heroic characters join forces and travel far beyond their homes to combat evil powers, this book ultimately focuses on a group of six people who work their way across the country to Gray Horse, sacred place of the Osage Nation in central Oklahoma, which has become a defensive stronghold. The six, who will form the nucleus of “Brightboy Company,” include: Cormac; his altruistic brother, Jack; Carl, a soldier; Tiberius, a cab driver from Africa; Cherrah, a fierce little woman who is both amechanic and a member of the Osage Nation; and Leo, an engineer. While others struggle against the now self-building robots by falling back on primitive, non-computerized means of survival, the members of Brightboy Company find ingenious ways to first lobotomize then repurpose captured robots. Riding their now docile spider tank, Houdini, they, along with an army collected at Gray Horse, head for Alas-

ka, where they will wage the final battle against Archos with help from some surprising allies. Like the robots, this book has its weaknesses. Because it is primarily plot-driven, most of Wilson’s human characters lack development. In fact, often the robots are more interesting than the people. In addition, I got a little tired of the introductions and conclusions to each segment, narrated by Cormac. They seem to reflect the author’s fear that we won’t be able to follow the plot. Trust me; we will. But these are minor complaints. “Robopocalypse” doesn’t pretend to be great literature. It is, however, a very imaginative, frightening and suspenseful vision of things to come if we’re not careful. After reading the first 100 pages or so, I told a friend, “If this book isn’t made into a movie, I’ll eat my laptop.” Steven Spielberg is already at work on a screenplay of “Robopocalypse.” The film is due out in 2013, and I’m betting it will be a blockbuster.

The National Honor Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) announced that Abington Heights High School student Joseph N. Festa, of South Abington Township, has been selected for membership. The society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved academic excellence. The announcement was made by NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prize. “On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Joseph has demonstrated to achieve this level of academic excellence,” said Nobel. “Joseph is now a member of a unique community of scholars-community that represents our very best hope for the future.” “Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” stated NSHSS President James Lewis. “We aim to help students like Joseph build on their academic success and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community.”

AHHS grad key to Eugene Emeralds win

Cory Spangenberg recorded a home run and five RBIs in Sunday’s win

Comets glimpse their future

Cory Spangenberg has already made clear his ability to help the Eugene Emeralds by getting on base at a higher rate than any other hitter in the Northwest League. Spangenberg used the June 26 game at Everett to show off his run-producing ability. The Abington Heights High School graduate hit his first professional home run and drove in five runs before an out was recorded in the second inning of Eugene’s 14-4 rout of the AquaSox. Spangenberg, a first-round draft pick by the San Diego Padres earlier this month, moved into a tie for the league lead with 11 RBI. There is already speculation in San Diego that the Padres may move Spangenberg up to a higherlevel team within Class A before his first season is over.

CLARKS SUMMIT- Abington Heights High School girls basketball head coach Vince Bucciarelli had to pause for a moment when asked when his camp first started. “We’ve been doing this for a long time up here, probably since the late 1980s,” Bucciarelli said. “We started off with maybe 30 girls and it’s built up to about 140 girls this year.” Bucciarelli was joined by Phil Desarno, the seventh and eighth grade girls and boys basketball coach; Bob Thompson, the freshman girls head coach; Tom Kusy, assistant girls varsity coach; and volunteer Lisa Imbriaco. The camp, which was held from June 20 to 24, featured a morning session with girls from grades one through six that ran from 9:15 a.m. to noon, and an afternoon session with grades seven through 12 than ran from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at Abington Heights High School. According to Bucciarelli, the instruction differs on the age of the girls. “In the afternoon session with the older kids we try to do a lot of the drill work that we incorporate with our

Former Freedom Ride honors Mathewson, veterans Giant makes pro debut BY ROB TOMKAVAGE

rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

Bryan Henry waited through five games to get his first chance as a professional baseball player. One of three catchers on the Missoula Osprey, the former Keystone College player finally made his debut June 25, in a Pioneer League game against the Great Falls Voyagers Henry made the wait worthwhile with a home run in his first at-bat. Serving as designated hitter and leading off the third inning, Henry launched a shot to left-field to begin the scoring in a 10-2 win by Missoula, a rookie league team for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 22-year-old from Columbus, N.J., finished 1-for-4. He struck out in his remaining three at-bats before being replaced late in the game.

league 10 days into his career. Batting third, Spangenberg came to the plate with two men on in the top of the first inning and homered for a quick 3-0 lead. After the AquaSox closed within 4-2 in the bottom of the first inning, the Emeralds started over with the top of the order in the second inning. Spangenberg, who has played every inning of the season at second base, again came to the plate with two men on base. This time, he doubled in two runs for a 6-2 advantage. When he went hitless the rest of the way, Spangenberg finished 2-for-6 and actually had his batting average drop to .394, which is tied for fifth in the league. Spangenberg leads the Northwest League in onbase percentage, is tied for first in RBI, is second with 12 walks, tied for second with four doubles, third with a 1.169 combined on-base percentage and slugging percentage and fifth with a .606 slugging percentage.

LA PLUME- Keystone College and Bucknell University share more than team colors . They both serve as alma maters for Christy Mathewson, a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. They teamed up to serve as the start and finish points for the inaugural Freedom Bike Ride. About 15 riders departed Keystone’s campus in La Plume just after 8 a.m. June 23 and are expected to arrive in Lewisburg July 25 in time for the Union County Veterans’ Fourth of July parade. “We wanted to do an event that would honor Christy Mathewson as well as all the veterans,” said event coordinator Kevin Bittenbender. “We thought, ‘What better way to do something like that than to come to his hometown and by using the mode of transportation that gives you the most freedom—a bicycle.’” Bittenbender, a U.S. Paralympic coach, reached out to veterans to be a part of the event. He is involved with the Wounded Warrior project through the Challenged Athletes Foundation for disabled athletes. Three- hand cyclists from the U.S. Paralympic team and the other coach Rob Rossi participated in the race “We’re gonna ride to the Veterans Hospital (in WilkesBarre) to thank the veterans,” Bittenbender said. “From there we will continue west to Milton and Lewisburg for the parade. Bittenbender was thankful for Keystone’s cooperation in organizing the ride. “I can’t say enough good things about the outreach that Keystone College has given us

as far as support,” he said. “They have been awesome and generous in aiding us to do something like this.” He also thinks that many of the values that Mathewson showed during his life were instilled in him during his time at Keystone Academy. “Christy Mathewson was not only a great athlete by his own merits, but he was also a veteran and people don’t really realize that,” Bittenbender said. “He gave up everything, his career to go and fight in World War I and later succumbed to injuries that he received during that conflict. He could have easily just continued playing baseball, but he decided to go and fight and support the war. I think his example is very prevalent to what we’re facing now. There are a lot of people out there that are making those sacrifices that could be easily making hundreds of thousands of dollars, but decided to be in the military and make a lot less. It’s the value that we place on freedom. I think that Keystone College represents that epitome of being free.” Keystone College president Dr. Edward G. Boehm Jr. was proud to have his institution serve as the starting point for the race. “We think it’s wonderful because this is where Christy Mathewson began his life,” he said. “He left here in 1898 and went to Bucknell, so they’re going to actually ride on probably one of the ways he went there when we left this town. He was our local hero at Keystone Academy, Factoryville’s local hero, and then he had wonderful years at Bucknell. .” Boehm hopes that people

will see the riding leaving town this year and want to be a part of the event themselves in years to come. “By them using this as the take-off point, we hope everybody will see the bikes, and next year a lot more will want to ride with them, and it will be part of a life that you can transfer along life’s highways, and it starts right here,” he said. Bittenbender thinks the rainy weather contributed to the low turnout, but he and his riders were not fazed by the wet conditions. “A lot of it is due to the weather,” he said. We’re gonna go with what we have. Weather is not gonna hold us back, we’re gonna be riding no matter what. Being that it’s an inaugural event we didn’t expect a lot of participants, but the ride is open to anyone who wants to participate along the route. They can join us on any of the three days. They can come out and ride with us for five minutes, five miles or the entire length. You don’t have to be a veteran. We have a 14year-old kid who is gonna ride with his dad, who is a veteran. It’s think it’s awesome that we have the youth support.” Joey King of Green Bay, Wisc., a member of the U.S. Paralympic team, was honored to take part in the inaugural ride. “It’s the freedom ride so that means a lot to me,” King said. “I went and fought for my country. It means a lot to me to try and give back. It feels good, especially to be with other guys that I train with for biathlon, so it’s nice to get back out with them and meet new people.”

Jim Lyons of South Williamsport, who served in the Army from 1985 to 1989 , was proud to take part in the ride with his son Zach, 14. The father and son wanted to take part in the race to honor people they know who are currently serving their country. “I know quite a few guys who have sons in the military and are deployed,” Jim Lyons said. “Some guys I work with are reservists and get deployed at different times. So we know quite a few people that have been or are deployed. All that together makes it a good cause for us to come out and ride.” Zach Lyons was excited to be able to share a ride with men who he looks up to. “It means a lot because I love being around military stuff. I think it’s really cool,” Zach Lyons said. “It feels really cool riding with all these guys.” Factoryville major Gary Evans was happy to be able to join up with the town of Lewisburg to make the ride possible. “It’s a nice connection. It

basically stemmed from Lewisburg making Christy Mathewson the grand marshal of their 17th annual veterans’ parade,” Evans said. “That is our connection, which is really nice. I love the community, and with Keystone being part of it, it’s just a whole different community. It’s not just 1,200 people, it’s bigger than that. It’s because of Christy Mathewson, and Keystone College that the borough gets to be recognized a little bit more for the right reasons.”

varsity and JV teams,” he said. “We try to teach the younger kids a lot of basic fundamentals, like passing, catching and shooting. We try to teach all the kids how to do all the basic skills.” Bucciarelli thinks the camp is partially responsible for the success of his Lady Comets teams. “We teach them a lot of stuff that we try to do at our practices,” he said. “They look up at all my older girls that are working the camp. I have girls from freshman to seniors who work the camp. The little girls look up to them. My girls say, ‘Was I that small when I came up here too?’ because they have all come to the camp too through the system. We’re not gonna get everyone who comes to this camp, but we’re gonna get maybe 10 out of each class. We try to have a lot of fun with them, get them enthused and get them interested in the game of basketball.” Bonding with the current players is something that Bucciarelli think the young campers really enjoy. “The little kids love them,” he said. “They hang on my kids all day long in the morning session and I know they love the little kids and have a great time with them. We get a lot of them to come to our games. They will show up for a game and run up to my kids and ask them to sign autographs on their T-shirts. It’s a lot of fun for both my older kids and the little kids.”

Toro has been attending the camp since first or second grade and believes it has helped her development as a basketball player and prepared her to know what to expect from Coach Bucciarelli. “Growing up into varsity, I know what I have to do to accomplish what he wants,” she said. Tiffany O’Donnell, a senior in the fall, also enjoys teaching the young girls the game of basketball. “It’s really fun because we get a chance to meet a lot of different kids and they really look up to us,” O’Donnell said. “It’s fun to just lead them around and know that we’re role models to them.” O’Donnell thinks the camp
