everything and this is part of the same – people of that period were coming out of that staid Victorian and having more fun….We’re trying to revive that in this party.” Guests are invited to wear period dress.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Editor, Despite receiving approximately $430,000 in unanticipated state revenue, the Abington Heights School Board inexplicably voted to eliminate librarians in the high school and middle school, the transitional first grade program, the Latin program and the computer education program for first through fourth grades. Abington Heights has long been known as a regional leader in academics. Nonetheless, despite receiving a smaller cut in state revenue than 426 out of 500 districts throughout the state, the board decided to decimate vital academic programs throughout the district. While less wealthy districts held firm in favor of education, Abington Heights eliminated programs that could make our children less competitive than our neighbors. This could lead to a drop in property values, an increase in property taxes and unfortunately, a lessprepared graduate of Abington Heights. The future of Abington Heights is in peril. We are now left with libraries without librarians. We have computer labs without computer teachers. We have students who have begun a multi-year Latin program without a way to complete their Latin studies. We have 6-year-old kids who need the extra support that a transitional first grade class can provide them, but no transitional first grade class to offer them. Nonetheless, one thing remains clear: when Abington Heights looks like it is down and out, we always pull through in the end. If our school board wants to cut librarians, computer teachers, foreign language studies and transitional first grade, it may be time to remove our school board. What will they cut next? Abington Heights is and always will be committed to education. The success of our children is what we take pride in. It is, and always will be, what makes us Abington Proud. Tom Brogan S. Abington Twp.

EDITOR’S NOTE In a story that ran July 20 regarding the “Race to Support Your Library” during the Second Annual “Pit Stop: A Grilled Hot Dog Family Night,” at the Abington Community Library two items were listed incorrectly. Kidracers who participate on the Kidracer track at the event are ages 3 to 7. Also Oscar Koveleski, who helped organize the event did not race in NASCAR. Rather, he is a retired Sports Car Driver. He was FIA International Driver in the Sports Car Club of America from 1951-1977.

CLARKS SUMMIT- Indoor seating, cooking classes and more fish are just a few of the changes Atlantic Fish and Fabulous Foods owner and head chef Amanda Liples has in store for customers. Regulars at Atlantic Fish have probably already noticed the cosmetic changes inside of the space. The renovations took place over Easter weekend and included adding three tables, bar seating and the removal of the open- air case of fish. According to Liples, the fish now stays fresh longer in a new area. After owning the space for just over four years, Liples said it was time for a “definite change.” “It was time to make it my own,” she said. “The response has been really positive. More and more people are coming in to sit down and eat.” Liples is also planning on putting more concentration on fresh fish and turning the space back into a “specialty fish market.” She hopes that customers will not have to travel to Scranton when they need fish and can find it “right in their own backyard.” Liples said that more fish choices should be available within the next six months. She added that the regular deli options, such as tuna and chicken salad, will still be available.

In addition to bringing in more fish, Liples will be offering cooking classes again, something she offered when she originally took over the business. “Cooking seafood is something everyone wants to do, but a lot of people are scared of it too,” she said. “I want to ‘uncomplicate’ it for them.” Classes began July 19 and will be offered every other Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. According to Liples, recipes and handouts will be offered and participants will be able to sample everything that is prepared. The cost per class is $45, and Liples encourages participants to reserve a spot by calling 586.0999. Registering for two classes at once will save attendees 10 percent.

Nicholson group requests help for history

Friends and family members about to release balloons in the air in memory of Cole Hazelton.

BY PETER SALVA Abington Journal Correspondent

NICHOLSON - The Nicholson Heritage Association requests the community’s help July 30 at Airline Petroleum in Nicholson to raise funds for a special cause and to collect Pepsi bottle caps. The Heritage Association is in its 3rd race to get a Pepsi Refresh Project grant in order to purchase and restore the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad’s Nicholson Station. “This Freight Station is one of a few remaining and it was the first one built on the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western back in 1849,” said Marion Sweet, chair of the Nicholson Heritage Association. According to a Heritage Association brochure, the railroad began surveying for a rail line from Scranton to Great Bend in 1849. At that time, construction on the first and largest railroad station on the line began in Nicholson. The station was initially used to board transient workers before being used to handle freight and passengers. In May 1878, the f irst telephone service in Northeastern Pa. was installed when service was opened between the Nicholson and Scranton Stations, about 21 miles south. After 1915, the station handled all freight, including after the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western merger with the Erie Railroad in 1960. Due to financial hardship the Erie Lackawanna Railroad permanently closed the station in 1971. The station was sold in 1983 to a local business and has been in private use since that time. “This is one of the very few stations left, built before the Civil War. We want to bring it back and restore it to make it into a museum,” said Sweet. The purpose of the event July 30 will be to collect donations and Pespi caps. These caps can be used as “power” votes for the Heritage Association. The caps have codes on the inside which can be worth between 5 to 100 votes. Airline Petroleum has donated Pepsi for this event. Other donations, including hot dogs, have been made by The Diner, The Off ice and Lochen’s of Nicholson. To help the Nicholson Heritage Association, and their cause, vote daily online at http://pep.si/jhdT84 and or text 107657 to 73774. Those who wish to help can also collect yellow Pepsi caps and drop them off in Nicholson, or email the codes to codes@nicholsonheritage.org and they will input them for you.

fic study be conducted in order to look into the issue. Council member Victor Alberigi suggested that Wells send a letter to the local police about a study, as well as the possibility of implementing a speed tracking sign to show drivers how fast they are going. Also discussed at the meeting was the future of the former Hawk Oil Co. gas station at 101 N. Abington Rd. Amy Orzel of Scranton spoke on behalf of her mother and property co-owner Annette Orzel. According to Orzel, her mother has not been in contact about any progress regarding the property and wants to “put a new face on an old problem.” Council presi-

dent Marie King suggested that Orzel contact the borough zoning officer, Laurie Harris, regarding the property and what can be done. King agreed with Orzel about the current state of the property being an “eyesore” and that the borough is interested in f inding a solution to the problem. Finally at the meeting, the council discussed two requests for the use of the borough’s $500 miniarts grant. King said that a request was received from community member Diane Vietz regarding the transformation of a dying hemlock in Abington Community Park. Vietz suggested that the hemlock be carved into a totem pole, which would

be an aesthetic asset. King said that Vietz had also requested funds from Waverly, Clarks Summit and South Abington Township. The other request was to grant the money to the Second Friday Art Walks in Clarks Summit in order to further promote the events. According to King, the art walks have enough publicity and suggested the council grant the money to the park project. Council member Todd Zimmerman motioned to grant the bid to the hemlock project, which was seconded by Marnie O’Dea Palmer. The council voted 6-1 to give the grant to the hemlock project.

CLARKS SUMMIT- Abington Heights School District Superintendent Michael Mahon, Ph.D. explained during the school board’s monthly meeting July 20 that recent state reports that question the possibility of cheating within the district during the 2009 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSAA) could simply be the result of a poor performance in 2008. Abington Heights was one of several regional schools who were “flagged” in a 2009 study that used statistical analysis to ferret out possible cheating on state standardized tests. While the report about the analysis contends the data can indicate where cheating “may” have occurred, it repeatedly stresses the analysis is not proof of cheating. Mahon said he learned of the report, dubbed the “Data Forensics Technical Report,” a study done by the Data Recognition Corporation, a Minnesota-based company that has done numerous “technical reports” during the years analyzing the state test, July 13. After receiving additional information July 15, the district learned why they were flagged for cheating. “In this report, there are 26 different categories in which you can be flagged,” said Mahon. “The report does a statistical analysis based on comparisons between student grade level performance and statewide performance. Essentially these categories can be broken down into two groups: erasures and change in scores.” Mahon explained that in regard to erasures, the group looked at how many answers were erased and changed from wrong to right. Each district’s average number of answers changed from wrong to right was compared to the state’s average. If the district’s average was statistically higher than the state average, they were be flagged. The data from 2008 was compared to 2009, and districts were also flagged if test scores in one particular year rose greater than would be predicted. Abington Heights received no flags for erasures, but as a result of reading scores in 11th grade going from 68 percent proficient in 2008 to 85 percent proficient in 2009, the district was flagged for a change in scale score from 2008 to 2009 in reading, a change in advanced proficiency percentages from 2008 to 2009 in reading and a difference between the reading and math scores. The report didn’t take into account the fact that the 68 percent proficient the district earned in 2008 was unusually low, as Abington Heights averaged a combined score of 81.4 percent proficient on the test during the 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 school years. The report also fails to acknowledge that these scores were earned by two different populations of students. “In my first year as superintendent…at the conclusion of the year, on my desk came scores from a kindergarten standardized test that had gone down,” recalled Mahon. Mahon said he called the principal of the elementary school into his office to discuss why there was a drop in the test scores and felt the principal’s response applies to this situation. “He said, ‘Mike, same building, same teachers, same curriculum, different kids,’” said Mahon. Mahon added that the district did not want to be dismissive of this report, and they were willing to take stern action if necessary, but he feels it is unlikely that cheating occurred in light of this information, combined with the fact there were no flags for erasures; no subgroups, like special education, in the school were flagged; and the district was only flagged in reading and not math. “I can tell you after looking at this data that I am completely confident that the report reveals absolutely no inappropriate behavior on the part of the staff or the students,” said Mahon. The school board will meet for its monthly work session Aug. 3.

gerty. She said everyone involved with Marley’s Mission is grateful for it, and hoping to see it continue as the group gets ready for its Second Annual Blue Ribbon Gala, scheduled for Feb. 18 at the Hilton in Scranton. “We had tremendous support for the gala last year,” said Haggerty, a Clarks Green resident. “They had anticipated we would maybe make $20,000…by the time we paid everything, we walked away with $115,000.” All of the money raised goes into the operation of Marley’s Mission, an organization that provides equine-based therapy to children, and their families, who have experienced trauma. Founded by April Loposky, Marley’s Mission was born after tragedy struck her family 2009 when her daughter, then 5 years old, was brutally attacked in her own room by a complete stranger. Police immediately responded and captured the attacker, and he has been prosecuted and is currently serving a life sentence. After limited success with traditional therapy, a horse was infused into Loposky’s daughter’s therapy regimen. Immediately, a recognizable change was witnessed. “Her classic line is, ‘I don’t want to be a taker, I want to be a giver,’” said Haggerty, of Loposky. “And, she thought if this could help my daughter, it can help a lot of other kids, too.” From there, Marley’s Mission was born. Almost from the beginning, the organization has experienced an outpouring of support from the community, which helps offer this therapy at no charge. “We wanted to prevent all barriers that are out there with

abuse, and one of them is getting treatment for therapy because of the high cost of health care, or because of lack of money. So everything we provide is free,” said Haggerty. As a result, the mission has become very dependent on donations and fundraisers to pay for the operational costs, and the completion of its new home. Currently located at 188 Shaffer Rd., Lake Ariel, Marley’s Mission is working on getting its new location on Edella Rd., South Abington Twp. up and running. The land was deeded to the mission for $1 in November, 2010 by Denise Burne Fein. Marley’s Mission, and other organizations, hold events for the group year-round to help offset these costs. Mount Airy Golf Course, for example, will host the 2011 Play Fore Kids Golf Tournament Aug.11. But the mission’s main fundraiser is still the gala, which is why committee members are working hard in the hopes of replicating last year’s success, keeping what works and adding new features in an effort to lure people in. One addition to the event this year will be the inclusion of Kayla Rivera, Miss Teen NY International, who began volunteering at a therapeutic riding facility at Fairview Farms in Tyler Hill, Pa. She will serve as the Honorary Youth Ambassador for the Blue Ribbon Gala 2012. “She’ll be at the gala, and we’re going to have her speak to some of the youth volunteers that are going to be at the gala,” said Haggerty. In addition to the planning, the mission is currently looking for sponsors for the event, businesses and individuals who sponsor the event will be posted on the Marley’s Mission website. Tickets are also available to purchase at a cost of $125 ($64.00 tax deductible), enter-

Two in a series of 12 vintage postcards, shown below, Long Branch, N.J., top, and Ocean Grove, N.J., feature portraits of women at the beach by artist Hamilton King (1871-1952). The concentration of the resorts featured from Rhode Island south through N.Y. and New Jersey with only Palm Beach in Florida is indicative of the concentration of beach locations of that era. The cards, which are more than 100 years old, are shared by Clarks Summit author and collector Jack Hiddlestone.

Watershed group seeks volunteers

Shown, from left, are: Bryn Grabowski, American Cancer Society Income Development Specialist, Kevin Huston, Justin Krzan, Ms. Marijo Naniewicz, Senior Advisor.

Students donate to Cancer Society

Seniors Justin Krzan and Kevin Huston presented a check to the American Cancer Society for $1,670 from their senior project at Carbondale Area High School. After much research, the boys designed and sold 1,000 custom wristbands to raise the funds. The bands were tri-colored in light blue, pink and gold representing prostate, breast and childhood cancers, respectively. The two students organized the sale of the bands in Carbondale Area Elementary and High School, as well as throughout their community, from October through February. They students said the senior project meant a lot to both of them, as they have been affected by cancer. Grandparents, family and friends of both boys have overcome and lose their battles with the disease. Huston’s dad has also been battling cancer the past few years.

The South Branch Tunkhannock Creek Watershed Coalition seeks volunteers to assist with its stream monitoring program, entering its eighth year. Volunteers go out one Saturday morning each month from April to November to collect water samples in a local creek and bring the samples to Countryside Conservancy’s office at Keystone College for analysis. The Watershed Coalition has been monitoring conditions at 10 sites in the South Branch watershed since 2008, and this year will add one more site in Benton Township in response to the start of gas well drilling in the watershed. No special skills are needed to volunteer. All equipment is provided by the Coalition, and those interested can also learn the simple methods we use to analyze pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and nutrient levels in the water samples. To find out more about the Coalition, contact Bill Kern at 570.945.6995 or email Ellie Hyde at sbtcwc@gmail.com. The South Branch Tunkhannock Creek Watershed Coalition works to promote and protect the health of the South Branch Tunkhannock Creek watershed, occupying 100 square miles of northern Lackawanna and Wyoming Counties.

70th Engineer Battalion within the 3rd Brigade 1st Army Division for several months. Lopez left the army in 2004 to spend more time with his family. “I had to choose between my family and the military,� Lopez explained. “I chose my family.� After living in Houston for four years, Lopez reenlisted in 2009 due to a “sense of duty� as part of the Army Corp. of Engineers. His work brought him to northeast Pa., and his family has lived in Clarks Summit since September 2009. Lopez said that since moving to the area, he and his family have become active members of the community. “The community has really

embraced us,� said Lopez. “In turn, we have tried to embrace the community as well.� His wife, Cathleen, is a Girl Scout leader, while two of his children, Alyssa and Thomas, are both involved in scouts. Lopez himself has a seat on the Abington Regional Water Authority Board. Alyssa and Thomas attend Abington Heights Middle School, while his youngest daughter, Isabel, attends Our Lady of Peace School in Clarks Green. Lopez has been working in the depot office out of Tobyhanna as part of the Army Corp. of Engineers stationed out of Philadelphia. When it was announced that his company would be going overseas to help with nation building, Lopez said he “embraced� the opportunity. Lopez explained that his

wife and children have been offering a lot of support. “The children have a sense of pride for what I’m doing,� he said. “My wife has been supportive as ever.� Lopez said his wife understands the sense of duty of being in the Army, because her brother is a Lt. Colonel serving in Afghanistan. Lopez also has a younger brother, Gabriel, serving in Afghanistan as part of the 125th Forward Support Battalion and has a possibility of serving in the same area with him. Outside of his work with nation building, Lopez said that he will also be doing work with infrastructure improvements and water works during his year long tour of service. Upon his return, Lopez said that he will be ready to “resume the role of a parent.�

W

hile some may see an artist’s work as a job, a hobby, or simply art, one local creator, Nannette Burti of Dalton, whose work is to be displayed at the AFA (Artists for Art) Gallery in Scranton from August 4 through 27, said she views it as more than that. “It’s a lifestyle, and I like the lifestyle,” Burti said. “It’s conducive to a higher quality of life than working. That’s the only upside of it, because you don’t make a lot of money and it’s a lot of work.” Burti said she has worked off and on with ceramics for almost 30 years, starting with clay in high school and getting more serious about the art while attending college at Marywood University in Scranton. After graduating, Burti spent 27 years working at Allied Services as a recreation coordinator. In 2006, she and her husband opened their own studio, Burti Ceramics Studio and Supply in Dalton. The studio includes a gas- firing kiln, in which Burti fires her pottery at 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. Burti said all of her work is hand built and she makes her own glazes, canvas and paint. She said the studio serves a “large local community” with 6 to 10 members, in addition to 10 class-

es, which are taught there, and a number of clients who come in to purchase supplies and fire their work in the kiln. Burti said she could have gone with a much smaller studio just for herself, which would have been less work, but wanted a place where others could come as well. At the time when the studio opened, she said she didn’t know of anyone else in the area offering the same services and felt it was necessary. Not only does Burti have a passion for her art, but also for sharing it with others. In addition to teaching classes at the studio, for the last three years she taught ceramics at Keystone

College in La Plume, and she said that she loves teaching. Burti’s ceramics have also been displayed at several local galleries, and every spring during Memorial Day weekend, the studio hosts an open house, during which time people from the community come in to tour the studio and view the pottery on display.

Who plays Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies?

“Let Your Imagination Lead the Way” is not only the title of a great song written by David Driskell, but it was also a theme of a camp held at the Dietrich last week. With Timothy Walker and David Driskell of Sadie Green Sales Jugband as guides, students and adults explored the world of jug band music in our Jammin’ in a Jugband Camp. In the morning session, 16 children learned how to play and create a variety of homemade instruments including washboards, spoons, saws, a tube-ophone and a washtub bass or, as Timothy calls it, “the mountain cello.” With that knowledge, the group learned how to jam together. After a week of practice, students performed “Momma Don’t Allow” with the guys of Sadie Green Sales at Celebrate Our River Day. For our afternoon session of the camp, folks from United Rehabilitation Services (URS) came down to experience jug band music first hand. They too were invited to play with Timothy and David at River Day, and the class performed “Let Your Imagination Lead the Way.” We really enjoyed working with URS on the project and look forward to future collaborations. While Timothy and David were here for the week, they also played for audiences at the Senior Center and the Tunkhannock Manor. I just love how jug band music appeals to people of all different ages and has a way of putting a smile on your face. I couldn’t agree more with the lyrics from a song by the Lovin’ Spoonful: “And the doctor said give him jug band music, it seems to make him feel just fine.” We would like to thank the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts for helping us bring in Sadie Green Sales Jugband. The Dietrich was not only filled with music last week, but the visual arts were also flourishing. With our artists-inresidence Steve and Amy Colley, little ones in our Preschool Mixed Media Camp were able to explore working with a variety of materials. They worked with clay and paints and made sculptures out of recycled materials. Their projects were so colorful and full of life. In the afternoon, students ages 6 to 12 years old learned all about mask making with Amy and Steve. They discovered the purposes of masks in different cultures and created papier-mâché masks. Each child’s mask was so unique. The arts are definitely all about imagination and creativity. If your child, would like to See Movies, Page 13

Sounds for Scoliosis returns to its roots BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

DUNMORE- After a year away, Sounds for Scoliosis organizers decided to host its third annual event exclusively at the bar where everything got started. Heilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place, located at 1002 Wheeler Ave., Dunmore, hosted the live music event in 2009 and will host it again this year, July 29 through 31. During its first year, Sounds for Scoliosis was held one night in 2009 and featured four bands. The event proved a success, and founder Lucia Peregrim decided to expand the event from four to 30 bands, playing at nine different venues in downtown Scranton over three days in 2010. While she enjoyed last year, Peregrim said this year she wanted to return the event to Heilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to take it back to Heilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s again this year, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the process of finding a permanent home for it,â&#x20AC;? said Peregrim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, if all goes well this year, like it did in year one, Heilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is going to be the permanent home for it every year.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will feature 35 bands, including the bands Skin and Bones, Big Things, Dual Diagnosis, 5 Ton Jack and Pop Roxs. The lineup includes a number of different genres ranging from rock, country, R&B and jazz, playing original and cover songs from the 1980s and 1990s, new hits

and classic rock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, and every year, I want it to be a little bit of everything,â&#x20AC;? said Peregrim. In addition to entertaining those in attendance, Peregrim, a scoliosis patient since the age of 13, said another goal of the event is to educate the public on scoliosis, a side-to-side curvature of the spine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to give back to the communityâ&#x20AC;Śby raising the awareness of early detection and raising awareness of scoliosis, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something you hear of every day,â&#x20AC;? said Peregrim. The magician Mike Jinx will be performing between acts, and there will be some time set aside for an open mic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This way nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bored, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a dull moment, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no down-time or anything,â&#x20AC;? said Peregrim. This year, those in attendance will have a chance to take a piece of the weekend home with them. For the first time this year, there will be 1,000 copies of the Sound of Scoliosis CD available featuring songs provided by some of the bands, including One Red X, Rick Jones, DJ Roc N Rol, 1 Hot Mess and End of Story. The event will feature a Scoliosis Survey Series, with speakers recounting their experience with scoliosis on Sunday from noon to six. Also on Sunday, Dr. Clayton Stitzel will be on hand to speak about early detection and awareness, there will be

THE ABINGTON JOURNALâ&#x2122;ŚCLARKS SUMMIT, PA

With Jane Julius Honchell SEE JANE READ

Memorable meals make for memorable reading. I recently spent a week with my daughter and son-in-law in Chicago. In addition to shared passions for music, art and theater, one of the things that binds us together is our love of food. I could go on and on about the wonderful restaurants we visited, but the best meal was one we prepared together. The feast began with an early morning trip to my favorite farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market in nearby Oak Park, where Amy and I greedily filled our cooler with wild black raspberries, ramps, sugar snap peas, haricots verts, baby lettuces, a creamy goat cheese aptly named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angel Foodâ&#x20AC;? and multicolored carrots so tiny and tender we wanted to sing lullabies to them. We stopped for some salmon on the way home and spent the afternoon cooking together. We each have our specialties: Tim is the master chef and presides over stove and grill; Amy makes pastries to die for and is in charge of the pie; and I am the salad queen. While Amy assembled a black raspberry pie of monumental proportions, Tim did mysterious things with the salmon and a rice and grain dish redolent of lemon and herbs and I tried a new salad recipe that involved a great deal of blanching and chopping of all things green. Although we were each busy with our own contributions, we consulted, tasted, helped each other improvise and laughed a lot. The resultant meal was delicious, made more so because we had shared in its creation. Little wonder then, that I was attracted to a book I found in one of the many great book shops we visited during my vacation: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Death by Pad Thai and

Other Unforgettable Meals,â&#x20AC;? a collection of essays edited by Douglas Bauer. The concept behind the book was to ask 20 writers to tell the story of a meal made unforgettable by its occasion, for, as Bauer writes in his introduction, â&#x20AC;&#x153;what makes the subject of food the scrumptious stuff of story is not the perfect balance of the recipe or the genius of the chef; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the narrative of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humanly at stake as we sit down to eat; what thoughts and emotions are stirred, revived, put into play, by the table weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re called to, by those who call us to it.â&#x20AC;? Not all of the contributors are food writers, per se, which makes the book all the more interesting. You may recognize novelists Sue Miller, Richard Russo and Andre Dubus III, as well as Peter Mayle, author of the memoir â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Year in Provence,â&#x20AC;? and the husband-andwife team of Michael and Jane Stern, who have co-authored a bunch of books about popular culture and whose column â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roadfoodâ&#x20AC;? appeared in Gourmet Magazine before that magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s untimely demise. Several of the writers are teachers and/or poets, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice balance of styles and perspectives. This little buffet of literary treats offers a variety of emotional flavors. You will find essays that are funny, wistful, melancholy, self-mocking, ironic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in short, they cover a wide range of human emotion and experience. Many of them hark back to the writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; childhoods. We read of mothers who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cook, poverty and memories of those awful 1950s, where everything came out of a can and invariably involved molded gelatin salads or the ubiquitous green

bean casserole. Other stories tell of celebratory meals, some of which go awry in terrible and entertaining ways. I loved so many of the stories that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t refrain from giving you a little menu of favorite dishes. Three of the pieces spoke to my heart, mingling pain and joy, and leaving me with the sense of fullness that comes from a balanced, wellmade meal. Sue Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foodumsâ&#x20AC;? is about the need to have someone feed you, where the meal isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about satisfying physical hunger, but the need for emotional nurturance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home,â&#x20AC;? by Andre Dubus III, tells the story of his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; breakup, and his mother trying to raise four children under age 10 after her divorce. A wonderful and inventive cook, this woman makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frito Pieâ&#x20AC;? when money runs low, but no matter what, finds a way to cook whatever the children request for their birthday dinners. Finally, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michelle Wildgenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beach Food.â&#x20AC;? This is a story of a marriage, excess and denial. The author develops a dangerous shellfish allergy on her honeymoon, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop her from making and devouring dishes thick with lobster, clams and shrimp for months until she winds up in the hospital. Wildgenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s denial of her allergy mirrors her equally serious denial of the fact that her young husband is an alcoholic. Six years later, all pretense is gone, but she looks back on that beachside honeymoon as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lost paradise.â&#x20AC;? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more in the mood to laugh, take a taste of Amy Bloomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;La Divina Commedia,â&#x20AC;? in which she tells the story of her life with lasagna. At various times, she has made Dieterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lasagna, the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fastest Lasagna and gourmet lasagnas with which she has wooed the various men in her life, but my favorite passage tells of the aftermath of feeding her small daughter a pizza. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We finished off a small pie and when we got home, I washed the tomato sauce out of her hair, which I had expected, but also out of her underwear, which I think must be the sign that you have really, really enjoyed your lunch.â&#x20AC;? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also enjoy a pair of stories by the aforementioned Sterns. Jane Sternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stir Gently and Serveâ&#x20AC;? is the hilarious story of her attempt to recreate

a Thanksgiving feast from her childhood, despite the fact that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a cook. Newly married, she buys a 35-pound turkey â&#x20AC;&#x153;approximately the size of a bear cubâ&#x20AC;? to feed four people. It will not fit into the tiny oven of their little apartment. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog, Richard, refuses to try her turkey.Michael Sternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Dinner with Andy Warholâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friends,â&#x20AC;? is filled with such delicious irony that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never have to take an iron supplement again. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do justice to this side-splitter; just read it. When you sit down at a strangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table, you may not enjoy everything they serve, and such was the case with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Death by Pad Thai.â&#x20AC;? Two of the essays gave me indigestion because their authors came across as so full of themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinner with Seamusâ&#x20AC;? by Henri Cole manages to be both boring and condescending. Cole has dinner with the wonderful poet, Seamus Heaney, and the highlight of the evening is when Heaney gives Cole one of his cherrystone clams in return for one of Coleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oysters, as if this confers some mystical sense of brotherhood. Oh, please! To make matters worse, Cole feels he has to explain what a cherrystone clam is, as if none of us has ever eaten anything but bologna sandwiches. The second story, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Feast of Preparations,â&#x20AC;? is well-written, and in it the poet David Lohman tells about a dinner he and his new wife host for the poet and gourmand, John Ashbury. What annoys me is that the poor wife is saddled with all of the planning, shopping and cooking, while Lohman fusses about, name-dropping and writing a sestina. These quibbles aside, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Death by Pad Thaiâ&#x20AC;? makes a great book for summer reading because it does not require long periods of sustained reading to enjoy. You can throw it in your beach bag, read a couple of stories between applying sunscreen and building sand castles or savor a few as a reward for weeding the garden. In short, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a moveable feast.

North sweeps Unico

BY TOM ROBINSON Abington Journal Correspondent

SCRANTON – Justin Klingman of Abington Heights scored the South’s only goal during a 3-1 loss to the North Friday night in the boys’ half of the ninth annual UNICO Scranton Soccer Cup at The University of Scranton’s Fitzpatrick Field. Klingman knocked in a rebound of a shot by Valley View’s Nick Milenkovski to cut the North lead to 2-1 with 12:10 remaining. The performance by Klingman followed up last year’s effort by his brother, Derek Klingman, who earned Most Valuable Player honors with two goals in a 3-0 victory South victory. Abington Heights had one player in each game of Friday’s doubleheader. Abbey Cadden played for the South in the girls’ game, which was won by the North, 4-2. Mid Valley’s Erika Symons had a goal and assisted on the game-winner by Alysa Borick of Forest City with 8:15 remaining. Borick’s goal came less than three minutes after Valley View’s Katie Iyoob had forced a tie by scoring her second goal for the South. Honesdale’s Tom Cahill scored twice for the North boys. Symons and Cahill were named Most Valuable Players and given the Al Dante Awards. Dante is a former Scranton UNICO member and national UNICO president who was a

JERMYN- Gavin O’Donnell, 15, has overcome many tough opponents in his quest to qualify for nationals in the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics to be held in Wichita, Kan. from July 26-31. The Lakeland Jr./Sr. High School sophomore will now have to deal with oppressive heat while competing in the 400 meter intermediate hurdles. His morning training has been moved up to the afternoon to help prepare him for the expected 105-115 degree heat index in Kansas. “We’re trying to get him acclimated to the Kansas weather,” Gavin dad, Rob O’Donnell said. “We talked it over with his coach and he said it was probably a good idea to clock his times in the heat of the day this week to give him a better chance (at nationals). “We’ve been working in the middle of the day to try to get used to this heat and used to sweating a lot,” Gavin O’Donnell added. “It’s gonna be around 110 degrees out there, so I’ve gotta get used to it now so I can perform better there.” Gavin O’Donnell is ranked 38th nationally by the National Elite Youth ranking system for ages 15 to 16 and is the only male from Northeastern Pennsylvania to qualify for nationals. As a freshman, he served as captain and led the Lakeland junior varsity (JV) track team to the PIAA District 2 Class AA championship where he placed second in both the 110m and 300m hurdles. He finished undefeated in the regular season in both events, including winning gold in both at the Abington Heights Track and Field Invitational. This past season was O’Donnell’s second as a member of the Lakeland JV track team, but his first year competing in the hurdle events. “It was our coaching this year,” Gavin O’Donnell said, of what led to the team’s success.

“We got two new coaches (Ryan Nolan and Tony Prudente) and they really knew what they were doing. They brought us together and they got us to all push together and work hard as a team.” O’Donnell has also excelled in the classroom, finishing his freshman year at Lakeland High School with a 3.3 GPA. In addition, he successfully completed a college level course: Introduction to Engineering, as part of “Project Lead the Way” earning four college credits from Penn State University. “Academics are very important to me,” he said. “Track definitely isn’t everything; I’m always getting pushed by my parents to work hard in school. I really try hard in school just as much as I do out here training.” The Greenfield Twp. resident has enjoyed the ride throughout the high school track season and into qualifying for the Junior Olympics. “It’s probably just being with my teammates and working hard everyday,” he said of what he enjoys the most. “Going out there and actually making it felt pretty good because it made all the work pay off. That’s the best part.” O’Donnell has been working at his conditioning since February to prepare himself for the competition. “I’ve been training every weekday for the last six months since the regular track season,” Gavin O’Donnell said. “Every single day I’ve been doing workouts up here (at the high school).” O’Donnell credits his hurdling coach Ryan Nolan for his great success in just his first year competing in the event. “I had never even thought about hurdling before,” Gavin O’Donnell said. “He just asked me if I would like to hurdle, I tried it out and he said that I looked good. He was definitely a lot of help. He taught me everything that I know.” Rob O’Donnell has been impressed with his son’s desire for the sport. “His discipline and determination to track is phenomenal to me,” he said. “He comes out here for two hours each day for track, and then he’s back for three hours for varsity football in the evening.” Gavin O’Donnell is hoping to get a spot at tight end or cornerback on the varsity football team in the fall. O’Donnell has competed in USA Track and Field qualifiers including a Mid-Atlantic area meet held in Hawley, where he placed first, the Mid-Atlantic Association meet held in West Chester, where he placed third, and the USATF Region 2 competition, consisting of six states, where he placed fourth. The

top five finishers from the USATF competition qualified for the Olympic Nationals in Kansas. “I’ve learned how to push myself,” Gavin O’Donnell said. “My coaches have really taught me well how to work hard and do my best in the races. I’m gonna need to really do my best in this race to place well. I just need to remember all my training and just put it all out there.” Rob O’Donnell praised the Lakeland coaching staff for his son’s development as a skilled hurdler. “I give all the credit to them,” he said. “They started the regular JV track season (so well), and ended up taking the team to the District 2 championship which they won. His hurdling coach (Ryan Nolan) saw that he had potential and identified it. “In the postseason, Lakeland head junior varsity head coach Tony Prudente took over Gavin’s training because Nolan relocated for the summer,” Rob O’Donnell added. “On their own time they came up here and really excelled him through the season and he was able to make it through the four different levels of nationals.” Prudente said he thinks O’Donnell’s work ethic and passion for the sport separates him from other athletes. “I started working with him back in March when we started the track season and he wasn’t even a hurdler then,” Prudente said. “He has come full circle in becoming a real hurdler, which is showing in his times and his advancement in this tournament. He has that rare thing in track that you can’t teach; it’s called the killer instinct. Not many kids have it, especially these days. He is one of the few that has it. It has helped with his training. He attacks every workout, every hurdle and every challenge.” Prudente believes O’Donnell is well prepared to have a strong performance at nationals. “He’s in shape and he’s been working hard for the past two months,” Prudente said. “He’s set up to run a pretty good time for a sophomore in high school.” Rob O’Donnell thinks his son’s confidence continues to grow as he advances through the tournament. “Absolutely,” he said. “He’s been going against better and better competition in each region and he’s increased his times at every race.” While O’Donnell would love to make a deep run in the tournament, he is most concerned with finishing with a personal best time in the race. “I’m hoping to make the semifinals, but my main goal is just to break a minute. That would be my best time.” Gavin is the son of Rob and Lisette O’Donnell.

great, talented group of kids who are getting along well and working well together. It’s also for a great cause, The Lackawanna County Branch of the PA Association of the Blind.” The County team will run the Delaware Wing-T offense, which Jervis uses at Lackawanna Trail, during the game. “The kids seem to be enjoying it and are picking it up quite well,” he said. Area high school coaches offer insight into the players. C/DL Michael Buck According to Jervis, Buck started every game for the Lions at center as a senior. Jervis thinks he will have an advantage in the game because of his knowledge of the system. “The city has some pretty good nose guards, so we’re gonna be expecting a lot out of Michael,” he said. OL/DL Tucker Vail Vail was a two-way started for the Lions on the offensive and defensive lines. Jervis said his great size and knowledge of the system will help him during the game. He is expected to be used on both offense and defense. WR/DB Chris Dixon Dixon started at wing-back and safety for the Lions. According to Jervis, he knows the system on both sides of the ball and is expected to contribute on offense, defense, and special teams. Abington Heights High School had five players selected to play in the Dream Game. The Comets finished last season with a 12-1 record and advanced to the PIAA Class AAA playoffs, falling to Allentown Central Catholic 54-14. “I am very proud of the players that were selected to play in the Dream Game,” Abington Heights head coach Joe Repshis said. “I know they will do a great job representing Abington Heights during the game.” DB/RB James Fruehan “James is a very explosive and very powerful runner,” Repshis said. “If you give him a little crease, he can make something out of very little.” Fruehan will continue his football career at Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in the fall. QB/DB/P Mike Beamish “Mike adds another dimension to the backfield from the quarterback position,” Repshis said. “He gives the team another viable option with his great speed and strong running to go along with his ability to throw the ball very well.” Beamish will participate in sprint football at Pennsylvania University in the fall. G/DE Kevin Kilpatrick “Kevin is a very sound offensive lineman,” Repshis said. “He is very athletic, moves very well and has great strength. I think he will do a very good job for coach Jervis because of his ability to pull and trap block, things you need to be able to do in his offense.” Kilpatrick will continue his football career at West Chester University in the fall. OT/DT Josh Snyder “Josh is a big, strong defensive lineman that plays with great intensity,” Repshis said. “He has a great motor and always gives 110 percent. He is very athletic and moves well which makes him difficult to block.” OT/DE John Paul Abda Abda recently declined to participate in the game. Lakeland High School had five players selected to play in

the Dream Game. The Chiefs finished last season with a 10-2 record and advanced to the District 2 Class AA title game, falling to GAR 40-21. “It was kind of what were expecting,” head coach Jeff Wasilchak said. “I felt that all of them deserved it.” DL Matt Boyarsky “He had a great career at Lakeland,” Wasilchak said. “He suffered a knee injury during his junior season, but bounced back and as a senior and had a great season on both sides of the ball.” Boyarsky will not be able to participate in the game because of a college commitment, but will continue his football career at Bloomsburg University in the fall. FB/LB Al Tuzze “Al was a four-year starter and played two tough, physical positions,” Wasilchak said. “He knows the game inside and out. The four years of experience certainly helped. He’s a strong, tough kid and as a runner was very tough to tackle.” Tuzze will be unable to participate in the game because of an injury. FB/LB Derrick Hanley “He has the total package,” Wasilchak said. “He is tall, big and runs well. He studies the game and has a knack for finding the football on defense. On offense, he has great size and speed and runs hard.” Hanley will continue his football career at Lackawanna College in the fall. G/DE Derek Fron “He is a great technician (on the field),” Wasilchak said. “He works really hard at everything that he does and does everything he is coached to do. He may be a bit undersized for his position, but makes up for it with his technical abilities and knowledge of the game.” TE/DE Steve Munley “He is a tall kid at about 6-3 and is a very, very athletic player with a knack for making big plays,” Wasilchak said. Munley will continue his football career at East Stroudsburg University in the fall. Scranton Prep coach Nick Donato will lead the City team. It will be his third time coaching in the game. He also led the City teams in 1983 and 1989 while serving as head coach at North Pocono. “It’s nice to work with kids you coached against and watched progress,” Donato said. “It’s also nice to see them come together and develop friendships that will last for the rest of their lives.” After the team has completed several practices Donato thinks his squad is rounding into form. “We’re finding out which things each kid can do best and putting them at the position where they can have success.” The Cavaliers had five players selected to play in the Dream Game after finishing last season with a 3-7 record. “I was happy to have those players selected,” Donato said. “They did a very good job the past few years and deserve the recognition.” WR/CB Cory Curmaci “Cory has done a nice job at cornerback the past few years at Scranton Prep, so he will likely see more action on defense during the game,” Donato said. RB John Mariotti Mariotti will not participate in the game QB/P George Pachucy According to Donato, Pachucy was selected to the team as a punter but will likely see action at other positions during the game. Pachucy will continue his football career at Susquehanna University in the fall. OL/DL Mike Walker “Walker has been a solid player on the offensive and defensive lines and will play on both sides of the ball during the game,” Donato said. TE/DE Pat Murray “Pat has been a very good tight end for us, he has good hands and should see some time on offense during the game,” Donato said.

Factoryville to honor star player BY JOSEPH CROFT Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE- The borough of Factoryville will once again come out to celebrate and honor its biggest star, baseball legend Christy Mathewson, Aug 12-13.

A time to share

It’s dinnertime, and what a senior parent is likely craving the most is to share a favorite family meal. That’s according to research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care® network, which revealed that lack of companionship is the biggest mealtime challenge for seniors. The local Home Instead Senior Care office is encouraging family caregivers to dig into the family recipe box to find that favorite dish and prepare and share a meal with their senior loved one. Then enter that recipe and the story about what makes the dish so special to your family in the Craving Companion-

shipRecipe Contest between July 15 and Sept. 15. The contest is part of the Craving Companionship program at http://www.mealsandcompanionship.com launched to help seniors stay connected socially and eat more nutritiously. “Many seniors need help planning and preparing nutritious meals,” said Bob Vielee, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office in Clarks Summit. The program offers family caregivers tips and practical advice to encourage companionship and easy healthy meals.
