CLARKS SUMMIT- The issue of speeders on Center Street was discussed at the Clarks Summit borough council meeting July 6. Janine Port, 408 Center St., approached council about the death of her two cats caused by speeding cars near her home. She said the first cat was killed in May 2010, while the other was struck and killed about a year later. Port said she is worried about other pets and children since Helping Hands Learning Center, a child care center, is located nearby. “I felt heartbroken, devastated and powerless after the death of my pets,” Port said. “We shouldn’t have to deal with speeders on Center Street.” Port said she was appreciative of the support from Mayor Harry Kelly, who spent 30 minutes with her after the second cat was hit. Port added that she witnessed an accident on her street near the Summit Square Shopping Center every one of the seven years she has lived there. Port urged police to install speed bumps or flashing lights on the road to deter speeders and thought placing an officer on the street would be a good source of revenue. “A delivery driver recently told me that my road is one of the five most dangerous in Clarks Summit to deliver on,” she said. Police Chief Lou Vitale informed Port that monitor boxes are gathering data on the street, but police cannot begin enforcement until a vehicle surpasses 36 mph. Another large topic of discussion was the process of throwing candy from fire trucks and other vehicles during the Memorial Day Veterans’ Parade hosted by VFW Post 7069. Parade chairman Dominick Scott said he is opposed to putting an end to having candy thrown to children during the parade because of the effect if may have on the turnout. “Children come to the parade for the candy, that’s the bottom line,” Scott said. “It’s important to get the children involved so when they become adults, they will carry on the tradition.” Vice President Roy Davis said he is not in favor of eliminating candy at the parade; he would just like to see an alternative solution. He proposed having a sponsor hand out candy or another type of treat, such as freeze pops or popSee Speeding, Page 10

hen he’s not teaching others to grow at Jaya Yoga in Clarks Summit, Alex Dubois is mixing things up as a bartender at Palazzo 53 in Pittston. Dubois, 29, has been traveling and moving for most of his life. He was born in Connecticut and has lived in many areas, including Los Angeles, Massachusetts and Montreal, Canada. While in Montreal, he helped run a coffee shop and was involved in the roasting and blending. When plans to move to Boulder, Colo. fell through, Dubois returned to Scranton, where his mother and sister live. A previous resident of Scranton, Dubois said that “It’s a good place to come back to.” Dubois began working at Palazzo 53 when it opened its door November, 2010. Working in a bar was a new experience for him, and he said he learned the basics of mixology from the previous bar manager. After awhile, he began experimenting with flavors and self-made syrups that he said began to impress owners Chris and Beth Barcia. “It’s been a lot of trial and error,” Dubois explained. “Seven out of ten haven’t worked. Beth and Chris have been really helpful and inspirational though. We all believe in what we’re trying to do here.” Dubois said that Chris, a former chef at Clarks Summit’s Bazil restaurant, brings in “really fresh and seasonal food” to the restaurant/bar. Dubois said he keeps that theme going with his self-made syrups and the other ingredients he adds to the cocktails. He’s been able to bring his creativity to several drinks, including Alex’s Northern Comfort, a drink he described as a “northeast version of Irish Coffee.” On Thursdays and Sundays at noon, Dubois can be found teaching open yoga classes at Jaya Yoga on South State Street in Clarks Summit. He explained that he took his first yoga class three years ago and has been regularly practicing

for the past year. Dubois said that he turned to yoga after “hitting a few walls” and wanting to find something to get himself “back on track.” “Yoga has really changed things for me,” he said. “It’s intoxicating.” While taking classes at Prana Yoga in Dunmore, he met Kelly O’Brien and Hilary Steinberg, who now own Jaya. Dubois has been teaching and taking classes at the space since it opened in April. He describes Jaya as a “really nurturing space” with a location that is convenient for him. After classes, Dubois said he often stops by Everything Natural to pick up fresh ingredients to take with him back to Palazzo 53. When he’s not practicing yoga or “contemporary cocktail making,” Dubois likes spending time studying art, biking and learning as much as he can. Although both jobs keep him pretty busy, he says that he’s “really thrilled” with where he’s at.

Clam Slam in Mayfield BY BEN FREDA Abington Journal Correspondent

MAYFIELD - Some people travel to New England in autumn to see the colors of the fall foliage. Some visit Washington, D.C., in the spring for the Cherry Blossom Festival. There are also those who make a trip to Mayfieldin the summer to enjoy the foods and activities of the annual Corn and Clam Slam. The William Walker Hose Co. Station 59, an all-volunteer fire, rescue and EMT station located in Mayfield, will host its 16th annual Corn and Clam Slam July 13 to 16. “A lot of people plan their vacation around the Corn and Clam Slam,” said Jim Perry, firefighter. At the Slam, people can enjoy foods, cold beverages, games, kiddie games, rides, raffle baskets and live entertainment. “I think it’s a great place where people can meet their friends,” said EMT Karen Bowerman. “If people come to Mayfield, they choose this weekend.” Besides corn and clams, the foods will include hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, big funnel cakes and fried dough. “The reason why the foods are so good is because they are made by moms in Mayfield,” said Bowerman. The Corn and Clam Slam will also have live music provided by local bands. Ashley’s Attic will perform July 13, Hillbilly D’Lux July 14 and Jeffrey James Band July 15. Maybe Someday will play their music July 16. Each band will perform nightly at 8 p.m. The Slam will also have a parade July, 16 at 7 p.m. Local fire companies, EMTs, marching units and twirling units will be marching. The parade will start on Main Street in Mayfield, turn right to Poplar Street, turn left onto Lackawanna Avenue, then turn onto Chestnut Street and make its last leg on Penn Avenue. The parade will end at the picnic grounds of the William Walker Hose Company. “A great thing about the parade is that all of the local firefighters and EMTs will come out to support us,” said Bowerman. “In return, we support them when they have an event.” The Corn and Clam Slam was started by firefighter Tom Jugan. “He coined the phrase ‘Corn and Clam,’” said Perry. “It was supposed to be a little event, but it has grown immensely.” Local businesses in Mayfield, such as Windsor Inn, Debbie’s Floral, Big Chief Market, Sterling Pharmacy and Tuzze Pharmacy, donate items and gift certificates for the raffle baskets, which will be at the Slam. The William Walker Hose Company also receives donated items from businesses such as Texas Roadhouse and Dick’s Sporting Goods. “The community’s very generous to us,” said Bowerman. The raffle baskets make the Corn and Clam Slam the largest fundraiser of the William Walker Hose Co. Admission is free, and there is also no cover charge for the bands.

CLARKS SUMMIT- A Cookout for Kids will be held at the State Street Grill in Clarks Summit July 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from this event will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Camp Can Do. This camp consists of two, weeklong, experiences for children with cancer, and for siblings of those undergoing treatment. Children can swim, hike, canoe, play games and much more. “It gives children undergoing cancer treatment a chance to break away from it all,” said organizer Timmie Ott. “A great part of it is that many of the camp counselors are survivors who come back to help continue the fun,” said Ott. The event at State Street Grill will include live entertainment from local band Mace in Dickson who have donated their time. There will also be a raffle to win a limo ride and a night at the casino, including gift cards for the casino.

"I asked Timmie Ott if I could do something involving the Cancer Society, but for kids. I had never heard of Camp Can Do but I was happy to be involved in sending children to camp. Our goal is to help send 10 children. I think with the help and the generosity of the community we can do it,” said restaurant owner Tom Hill. “We’re happy to do anything we can for kids,” added Hill.In addition to a basket raffle, collectible bears, designed by Boyd’s Bears will be sold for $25. These bears can be kept or donated to a child at Camp Can Do. Tickets for this event are $20 for an adult and $10 for a children up to age 12. Price includes: hamburgers, hot dogs, cold salads, kabobs, draft beers and soda. Tickets are available at State Street Grill located on 114 S. State Street, Clarks Summit.

tion, Bill Gates recognized the organization for its central role in the battle against polio. He encouraged Rotarians to keep fighting, saying “Your work has brought us so far: 99 percent of the way there. This last one percent will be the longest, hardest 1 percent. It’ll require more work and commitment than ever before. But I’m 100 percent convinced, that this fight is winnable. We’ve never stopped at 99 percent before. We are ‘this close.’ “Your work. Your voices. Your continuing commitment. These are the things that will allow us to end the story...and close the book.” If you’d like to be part of this milestone, contact any Rotary member to make a donation.

OUTGOING ROTARY EXCHANGE STUDENT Kevin Murray reports: “Hello from Venezuela. My last days in Venezuela are slowly winding down. My last month has been filled with lots of activities, such as graduation ceremonies and trips to the beach. Recently I went to the coastal beach region, where there had been many slaves—between 1,600 and 1,800—because some of the best cacao (coco) is from this region. June 23 is the celebration of San Juan; the locals celebrate this for three days and nights. They say the best chocolate is from Switzerland but the cacao that they use to make that wonderful chocolate is grown right here along the Caribbean in Venezuela. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon.” JOIN ROTARY. BE INVOLVED.

Forensic members compete in D.C. BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT- Abington Heights High School students, Charles Jie and Shomik Ghosh, qualified for and competed in the National Catholic Forensic League Grand National Speech and Debate Tournament held Memorial Day weekend in Washington, DC. Both students competed in the Congressional Debate event. According to Sarah Scranta, English teacher and Speech and Debate Coach/Forensic Team Coach at Abington Heights, “To qualify for the national tournament, students have to score as one of the top four competitors in their event at the Scranton NCFL national qualifier tournament. This year, the tournament was held at Dallas Middle School. Winners are announced at the league end-of-year banquet immediately following the tournament. While at the national competition, Charles Jie advanced as a national semi-finalist, placing in the top 36 in the country in Congressional Debate. Shomik Ghosh placed at the top of his competition chamber in two out of three preliminary Congressional Debate sessions.” While in Washington, the students took a guided tour of the United States Capitol building, where they learned more about congressional debate and how their competition event exists in reality on the national stage. Scranta said, “The team has qualified students to the NCFL Grand National Tournament every year since 2008.” The Forensic Team maintains membership within three competition leagues: the National Catholic Forensic League, the National Forensic League and the Pennsylvania High School Speech League. According to Scranta, “The mission of the Abington Heights Forensic Team, in partnership with the school, parents and the community, is to promote exemplary oratorical and dramatic skills, and to foster a love of speaking, selfexpression and honorable teamwork for high school students. Encouraging students through teaching, competition and team activities, the AHHS Forensic Team builds the effective public speaking skills

He said, “We’re investigating businesses and the timeline of businesses and this is an open question: No one knows anything about the device or the location of the business or the business itself.” The device is a “Call Charlie Kumpas Sender,” Model CS-20 Electronic 2-Way Communicator that is believed to be circa 1960s and was designed for “General Business Use; Baby Sitting and Invalid Care; Restaurants, Taverns, etc; and Burglar and Hold Up Detection.” As noted on the spec sheet,

The event will raise money for several causes selected by the ride’s organizers based on their feeling Argonish would have been a supporter. in the case of general business use, for example, “Place master in executive or office position where automatic privacy is desired and where calls for departments originate. Install Sub-stations in the various departments.” The master and sub-stations could be used for two-way communication in factories, warehouses, stores, garages, offices and large homes. While it was a product of the Wm. M. Smith Company located in Broomall, Pa., the Call Sender was available through a business known as the “Call/Sender Corporation,” with a business addressat 111 North State St., Clarks Summit. That address is home to Wells Gas Station. Kumpas said, “Wells Gas Station is an independent operator. We’re looking for any information on the (Call Sender) business itself and how long it existed. We don’t know anything about that company and we’re trying to work out the map of businesses.” Anyone with information regarding the business or Call Sender device is asked to contact Kumpas via email at chask2004@gmail.com.

Continued from Page 1 cure,” said Lauren, 9, of Dalton. “We’re just trying to get him there. He just has to go do special surgeries, and he doesn’t have enough money for all that so we just want to help him.” Lauren organized the lemonade stand after making lemonade one day. She brought the idea to her siblings, cousins and friends who were in favor of it. The group wanted to donate the money to a cause, and Lauren’s grandmother, Gerrie Carey, suggested giving the money to Brunetti. The group raised $52 the first day and presented it to Brunetti at his home. Carey said he was very appreciative of the children’s effort. “He was really elated with the fact that these kids are doing this,” said Gerrie Carey. While Brunetti was more than happy with the money donated, the children felt they could raise more, and have decided to keep the lemonade stand open for the rest of the summer. In addition to the lemonade stand, the group is also selling baked goods and ice tea at $.50 each, as well as solar lights for $5. The solar lights are being donated by Gerrie Carey, with all the proceeds going to Brunetti.

The weekend included appearances by local firemen, fire trucks and featured food and many giveaways. The biggest prize given was Pennsylvania 500 tickets, won by Ralph Kehrli. The Dalton Lumber Do It Center was able to donate $2,000 to Northeast Emergency Services Training Center owner Doug Lacoe said he and wants to thank everyone who assisted them in helping grow the training center.

Fern Hall in Clifford Township announced that it is hosting the First Annual Fern Hall Backyard Blues and Barbecue Fest July 17. Located on Crystal Lake in Susquehanna County, this one-day event will feature blues artists and guitarists in Pennsylvania.

Tickets for the event are $25 in advance and $30 day of show. Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tickets can be purchased at Fern Hall or by calling Fern Hall at 570.222.3676.

“If you buy a solar light it shows that you support Michael,” said Lauren. “We told Michael to look for solar lights, they support you.” Lauren said it’s the group goal to get the solar lights in every yard in the area. In addition to the lemonade stand, the children plan to go door-to-door selling them. They said Brunetti is going to provide them a photo of himself that will be put on the solar lights, so people will be able to more easily recognize who the lights support. The lemonade stand will

be open every Monday and Friday for the rest of the summer Lauren said they usually open the stand at approximately 10 a.m. and close around 4 or 4:30 p.m., with

a lunch break around 11 a.m. Those interested in sending a monetary donation can send checks, made payable to the Michael Brunetti Trust, to 172 Handley St., Archbald, PA 18403.

LIBRARY NEWS

BY MARY ANN MCGRATH

See the USA – the Fodor’s way and the Weird Central way, using two new guidebooks at the Abington Community Library, one that makes the cross-country trip in the usual sightseeing way and the other (mainly for kids) that takes a different route altogether. “Fodor’s Essential USA: Spectacular Cities, Natural Wonders, and Great American Road Trips,” helps plan a perfect getaway with the help of full-color photos and regional maps. Check out the lists of best national monuments, city neighborhoods, amusement parks, and outdoor adventures; and benefit from the advice, opinions and updated information of Fodor’s locally based writers. Hit the highlights from the Maine coast westward to Portland and Seattle. The book is available for circulation to library patrons. “Weird U.S.: A Freaky Field Trip Through the 50 States,” by Matt Lake and Randy Fairbanks is a cross-country tour that stops only for jaw-dropping discoveries, unconfirmed curiosities and unbelievable oddities. The two authors write for “Weird Central,” a mysterious outfit based somewhere in New Jersey, where news of all the weird things in the U. S. ends up eventually. Readers of their guidebook will find out where there are some of the strangest celebrations and parades ever, and explore haunted houses, roads, bridges and even stores. The authors promise plenty of adventure and a good scare or two as readers journey through the pages of this book scoping out Roadside Oddities, Weirder Homes and Gardens, A Creepy Creature Expeditions, and Tombstone Tours. The book is available in the Children’s Collection. New Adult Non-Fiction “The Steal: a Cultural History of Shoplifting,” by Rachel Shteir. Called a “groundbreaking study,” this book shows that shoplifting in its many guises --- crime, disease, protest --- is best understood as a reflection of our society: ourselves. Some contemporary analysts quoted by the author see the current epidemic as a response to a culture of hyperconsumerism, others question whether it can be tied to the economic downturn. “Rawhide Down: the Near Assassination of Ronald Reagan,” by Del Quentin Wilber. The author, a reporter for the Washington Post, has researched the events of March 30, 1981, focusing on the Secret Service agent whose fast reflexes saved the president’s life, the surgeons who operated on Reagan as he was losing half his blood, and the small group of White House officials who managed the crisis. Here, too, is a portrait of the man the Secret Service codenamed Rawhide, who inspired awe and affection in everyone who encountered him at this moment of near-disaster. “The Man in the Rockefeller Suit: the Astonishing Rise and Spectacular Fall of a Serial Imposter,” by Mark Seal. Over a span of decades, German native Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, stepped in and out of identities, charming his way into exclusive communities across the country, culminating in his biggest triumph: 12 years posing as Clark Rockefeller of Boston, wealthy scion of the Rockefeller family. In 2008, his trail of deceptions was exposed when he was arrested for kidnapping his own daughter. The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit.

Sharing a CULTURE BY JOAN MEAD-MATSUI Abington Journal Correspondent

Sharing Chinese culture was the theme of a program held June 18, from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Abington Community Library. Scranton Chinese School teacher, Hu Xiaohui and Mary Ann McGrath, Head of Children’s Services at the Abington Community Library, hosted the program as part of the library’s 2011 Summer Program that included dance, group performances, poetry, and music. Shuhua Fan, PhD, an administrator at the Scranton Chinese School said, “We are very thankful to Mary Ann at the Abington Public Library for the opportunity to share Chinese culture with the local community and also to promote our Chinese School. We hope that more people will know about our school and can join us to learn Chinese language and culture. ” To learn more about the Scranton Chinese School, call 941.7434.

June was a month filled with lots of activities for Troop 160. This month, students were dismissed for the summer and so were the scouts. At Troop 160’s last meeting, we had a softball game and ended a fun meeting with a pizza party. Our Troop had its Eagle Court of Honor June 5. This event is a ceremony honoring those who have obtained the rank of Eagle this year. Getting the rank of Eagle is a long and hard journey, and the scouts deserve this ceremony. It was held at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church. Afterwards, we had some snacks. On June 11, there was a fishing derby at Abington Community Park. Hun-

dreds of people showed up to fish. Anyone 15 and under was eligible to fish. Prizes were raffled off as well. The Lions Club ran the event. The boy scouts helped the Lions Club with registration. Later that day, vendors and displays were set up for the centennial of Clarks Summit. Troop 160 set up a “leave no trace” display. There was an educational trail set up so people could go through “leave no trace” scenarios. Troop 160 also had a stand that had a game where people would guess how long it takes for objects such as glass bottles to decompose. Troop 160 tries to help its community whenever it can. Besides the fishing derby and the “leave no trace” stand, Troop 160 has recently done several Eagle projects and will be cleaning up the fireworks at the middle school. Remember, a scout is always helpful. Tyler VanGorder has the rank of Life in Boy Scout Troop 160 from Clarks Summit. He is a ninth grade student at Abington Heights HighSchool.

While Russell leaned from his 6-foot-five-inch stature to kiss a groupie, Hitchcock placed a fan’s hat on his crown of white curls and promptly returned it to open arms. Just after a crowd sing-along to “Every Woman in the World” Hitchcock noted “This is a love

thing, right?” and explained it was a very special night for Air Supply: their 36th anniversary. “Since 1975 I’ve had the honor and pleasure to work with one of the finest songwriters in the universe – Mr. Graham Russell.” “At the end of the day, I only wish for two things: to love and be loved.” With that intro, the band of-

Although they left the stage long enough for the crowd to demand an encore, the duo and band returned with “ Me Like You” from their 2010 album “Mumbo Jumbo” and the finale, an acoustic version of “All Out of Love,” which ended in a group hug by band members: Amir Efrat on keyboards, C.J. Burton on drums, Jonni Lightfoot on bass and Aaron McLain

on lead guitar.

AHHS names volleyball coach

SPORTS Clearbrook, Palazzo 53 vie for Major Farm Championships

BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- New opponents will not be the only change the Abington Heights High School girls volleyball team will have to adjust to this season. After switching from the Wyoming Valley Conference to the Lackawanna League for the 2011-2012 school year in June, the school district announced that Michael Labagh will replace Dan Phillips as the team’s head coach. The Abington Heights School Board approved the hiring durMichael Labagh ing its monthly meeting June 22. The Dallas resident, who has spent the last three seasons coaching the Dallas High School team, said the job came somewhat by chance. “It’s a funny story, actually,” said Labagh. “I had an internship at PNC Bank (in Scranton) and I was approached to help out with another internship opportunity with Abington Heights Educational Improvement Organization. “Our first meeting was at the Abington Heights (School District) Administrative Building, and I think I just brought up that I coached volleyball in Dallas.” Word traveled fast, and by the time Labagh made it back to PNC, he received a call from Superintendent Michael Mahon. “I thought I was in trouble my first day on the job,” said Labagh. “But he said, ‘Rumor has it you have some knowledge about volleyball.’” Labagh had a little more than some knowledge. A volunteer assistant for Dallas High School in 2009, he be-

Instruction offered at C.S. Jiu-Jitsu studio BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Pride Lands’ Brazilian jiu-jitsu has shown much growth since its beginning almost three years ago. Lead instructor Jason Ratchford started his academy in Old Forge with only about 10 students. After outgrowing that space, the studio moved to Scranton before settling at its current location at 919 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit, March 1, where it now includes more than 60 students. “I noticed that I was getting students from different areas of Clarks Summit, Scranton and Old Forge, and from the luck of God, I ended up here,” Ratchford said. “It’s a location where I am able to meet all the needs of all my students who travel. The academy just keeps getting bigger and bigger. We have a great group of students.” The martial arts studio offers programs in Brazilian jiu-jitsu; Brazilian jiu-jitsu for children, wrestling; and mixed martial arts (MMA) and features more than 2,750 square feet of training area. “I started the academy to share my love of jiu-jitsu with other peo-

ple and to show jiu-jitsu to them,” Ratchford said. “Also because I believe jiu-jitsu can help you better understand yourself on and off the mat. I really relate everything I do in life to jiu-jitsu. I really love to teach and I love to see people reach their goals.” Ratchford thinks there are many advantages for the average person

to begin training in jiu-jitsu. “It helps you to be able to understand your own emotions and fears or for just getting into shape,” he said. “Everybody’s goals are different. Some people want to compete, some people just want to simply learn to defend themselves and some people want to learn how to have a better exercise program in

their life. “I believe there are a lot of mental, spiritual and physical benefits.” In Ratchford’s opinion, Pride Lands is the best place for jiu-jitsu training because of the quality of the instructors and their passion for teaching. “The instructors here don’t hold anything back,” he said. “My goal is simple—it’s for you to defeat me. I want to see my students surpass me because that is a representation of how well I teach. I take pride in seeing my students reach their goals and being able to catch me. I don’t hold any secrets back. I train twice a week with the Brazilians in New York City. I bring everything back here and teach it to my students. It’s just a great atmosphere, everybody shares with each other. We’re like a big family.” Students were recently promoted by Professor Ailson “Jucao” Brites June 26. A black belt was awarded to Jason Ratchford, a purple belt was awarded to Gregg Germano, a blue belt was awarded to Sarah Stevens, Scott Burgess and Kyle Gillette and an orange belt was See Jiu-Jitsu , Page 3

Ian O’Connor, author of ‘The Captain: the Journey of Derek Jeter,’ will appear at Barnes and Noble in Wilkes -Barre July 16 to discuss and sign his book. BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

WILKES- BARRE- Derek Jeter entered into an exclusive club after recording his 3,000th career hit, and author Ian O’Connor is eager to tell readers how Jeter got there. A sports columnist, currently writing for ESPNNewYork.com and host of the radio show 1050 ESPN in New York, O’Connor will be signing copies of his book, “The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter,” at Barnes and Nobles in Wilkes -Barre July 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. “Jim Brozzetti, who’s affiliated with the Yankees Scranton AAA team, is a friend of mine and he helped arrange it,” said O’Connor. The book was released in May to coincide with the date Jeter was expected to reach 3,000 hits. An injury in June put the Yankee captain on the disabled list, delaying the milestone until July 9. While there are four other former Yankee players to record 3,000 hits— Wade Boggs, Paul Waner, Dave Winfield and Rickey Henderson—Jeter is the first to do so while playing for New York, and many Yankee fans would not See Jeter, Page 3

With the NBA in lockout right now, it might be a while before anyone sees a professional basketball game, but hoop dreams will be in the air at Dalton Park July 16, beginning at 9 a.m. for The Dalton three-on-three basketball tournament. Both boys and girls are encouraged to participate in the tournament, the proceeds of which will go to the Lackawanna Trail High School boys basketball team. All are welcome, but coordinator and Lackawanna Trail High School boys basketball coach Andrew Kettel says they’d better bring their A-game. “Boys and girls entering grades five to 12 will play on teams of three to five players, each facing dou-

ble elimination,” he said. There will be separate divisions for boys and girls and grades 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12 and teams will play a minimum of three games. The top four boys and girls teams will make the playoffs and the tournament lasts until all games have been played. The champions from each division will receive a trophy. Though refreshments will be sold at the park, lunches may be brought from home. An entry fee of $45 must be paid along with each player’s registration forms. For information, visit http://www.coachkettel.com. Forms may be printed out or picked up in person at the Dalton Carnival.

The Royals are coming off a 16-5-2 record that included their second Landmark Conference title in four years and a second-round loss to eventual semifinalist and then 9thranked William Smith College in the NCAA Division III tournament. In three seasons as head coach, Murphy, a former Royal standout, has led Scranton to a 40-17-3 record (.690). The Royals will open their 2011 season Sept. 1, against York College in York, Pennsylvania, beginning at 4:30 p.m. games, and what I saw was some pretty strong volleyball,” said Labagh. “I’m pretty excited to come here to an already established program.” The Lady Comets finished last season with an appearance in the District 2 Class AAA finals. Despite switching to the Lackawanna League, Labagh is confident his team has the potential to repeat last year’s success. The AHHS girls volleyball team will begin practice August 15, and their first game is scheduled for Sept. 6, at Lackawanna Trail High School.

likely to come true the day of the 1992 MLB draft. Rumors abound that the Houston Astros and Cincinnati Reds, who both had picks ahead of the Yankees, had an eye on Jeter. “Hal Newhouser, who was a scout for the Astros, said, ‘If you don’t draft Jeter with the first pick in the draft, I will resign,’” said O’Connor. “They didn’t and he did.” The Astros selected Phil Nevin that year, and the Reds selected Chad Mottola with the fifth pick, leaving Jeter free to be selected by New York. Since then, he has been a key component in five World Series victories. Jeter has been selected for 12 All-Star teams and won five Golden Gloves. These accomplishments have led Jeter’s name to be included in conversations and debates regarding the greatest Yankees of all time. “He’s obviously not the players that Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle were, but if the Mount Rushmore is Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle, I think that Jeter would be on that second tier. “I think he’s one of the top 10 greats, I’d rank him at number six after Yogi (Berra).” O’Connor will be on hand for a brief question and answer session that will take place before the book signing at 1 p.m. For more information on O’Connor or “The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter,” visit http://www.ian-oconnor.com/index.html.

It’s scary to see how good some of these guys are getting.” According to Ratchford, achieving the rank of black belt took many years of hard work and dedication. “I’ve been training for 15 years and I just got my black belt the other day from my master,” he said. “I’m his first American black belt. All of his other black belts are Brazilian. He’s handed out black belts twice in America before, but they were both to athletes of Brazilian descent.” Sarah Stevens, the sister of Jason Ratchford, was overjoyed by the success the team has been able to achieve. “It was an unbelievable and an emotional day for me,” she said. “I was so proud of my brother, myself, and all my teammates who were promoted. My brothers Jason and Matthew work so hard and are outstanding teachers, but most importantly are great brothers and friends to the entire team.” Assistant instructors at Pride Lands include Matt

Ratchford, Josh Serfass, Brian Durkin and Gregg Germano. The studio also has fight teams for Brazilian jiu-jitsu and MMA. Team members include Marty Flynn, Mike Baresse, Dave Morgan, Andre Lopez and Roy Gonzalez. Matt Ratchford cherishes the time spent training with his brother and thinks Jason offers high quality instruction for anyone interested in competition fighting. “Jason’s my big brother, so training with him everyday is the greatest thing I ever got out of my life,” he said. “I’ve trained with him since I was a little kid. Everything I’ve learned in jiu-jitsu has come from him. “He’s probably the best tournament fighter around. If you want to be a competition guy, no one is gonna get you ready better that my brother,” he added. “If you’re looking to compete, he’s the best guy to come train with. I’m not just saying that because he’s my brother, he’s proven. The best way to learn competition style fighting is from someone who competes all the time.” Jason Ratchford won first place in both the mediumweight and absolute (openweight) class April 16 at the New York International Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship hosted by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation in

City College, N.Y. Serfass listed Ratchford’s intelligence and attention to detail as two reasons why he is a top instructor. “He adapts to everyone,” Serfass said. “Different body types work in different ways. Something that works for a guy that is long and lanky isn’t necessarily gonna work for the same for someone that is short and stocky. He’s able to tweak things to each individual and everybody here gets a fair amount of attention.” Germano thinks Ratchford’s ability to communicate well with a diverse group of people and his experience fighting against the best competition makes him a quality instructor. “He’s great with all spectrums of age groups: kids, adults, and older people,” Germano said. “He goes to different places as far as New York and New Jersey for seminars to bring the upper echelon black belt instruction back to the region.” The price for adults to train at Pride Lands Academy is $100 per month. According to Ratchford, adult classes are open mostly every day. The academy has started having morning classes and is expanding with a much bigger student base. Children can train for $90 per month. The children’s program is offered three days each week.
