Editor: Now that the debt ceiling has been raised and the debt default has been avoided at least until after the 2012 presidential election to President Obama’s advantage, it’s time for the Democrats and Republicans to stop the vicious rhetoric between the both parties and get serious about doing what is right for all the American citizens that elected and sent them to Washington, D.C. to do just that. It’s debatable which party is more to blame for the serious financial debt this country has accumulated during the course of many years, and is still continuing to get bigger, but the fact of the matter is that both parties are to blame, not just the Republicans as the mainstream American columnists

and radio and TV reporters are saying it is. Both political parties have the perfect chance and opportunity now to come together for the common good in a bipartisan way to get the huge financial debt this country has now under control before it goes over the cliff it’s headed for because of this country’s past and current political representatives actions. I hope all our elected representatives in Washington will now come to their senses and realize that if they continue to allow this country to stay on the path it’s been on, that they’re to blame for what will eventually happen in the future. God help all of us if it does happen. John Hollenback Greenfield Twp.

Editor, When you go on a road trip, you need to follow the signs to arrive at the right place. Going online can be very much the same. Look for the “.gov” at the end of the web address. If it isn’t .gov, it isn’t the real Social Security website, which is www.socialsecurity.gov. Countless consumers nationwide are victimized each year by misleading advertisers who use “Social Security” or “Medicare” to entice the public to use their services. In many cases, these companies offer Social Security services for a fee, even though the same services are available directly from Social Security, free of charge. These services include updating a Social Security card to show a bride’s married name, replacing a Social Security card and getting a Social Security number for a child. These for-profit businesses may cleverly design their websites, so when people use Internet search engines, their advertisement pops up. They may even make their advertisement look similar to the real Social Security website. Some of these sites, at first glance, appear to be affiliated with Social Security, but upon closer examination, these are forprofit companies charging

individuals for a service that is provided free by Social Security. For instance, a quick Google search on “replacing a Social Security card” brings up paid advertisements for websites that charge a fee just to get an application for a new card. That service is absolutely free from Social Security. The law that deals specifically with misleading Social Security and Medicare advertising prohibits people or non-government organizations, like forprofit businesses, from using words or emblems that mislead others. Their advertising cannot lead people to believe that they represent or are somehow affiliated with or endorsed or approved by Social Security or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Medicare). But that doesn’t stop advertisers from trying. For more information, “What You Need to Know about Misleading Advertising” at www.socialsecurity.gov/ pubs/10005.html. When visiting www.socialsecurity.gov, make sure you look for the “.gov” sign along the way. And remember: If it isn’t .gov, it isn’t Social Security. Michele Wren Social Security District Manager in Scranton

The fourth annual Lackawanna Community Fundraiser to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of NEPA and the Employment Opportunity and Training Center (EOTC) will be held Sept. 22, at the Scranton Cultural Center. The event will feature honorary co-chairs United States Senator Robert P. Casey and Monsignor Joseph G. Quinn of Fordham University. According to Randy Williams of the Lavelle Strategy Group, Msgr. Quinn will be serving as the emcee for the evening, which will include “introductions, talking about how the event has grown over four years, reinforcing the reason we attend and the importance of collaborative community support.” As for Casey, he chaired the event last year and will return as an honorary co-chair this year due to “his longstanding dedication to children at risk,” said Williams. “Senator Casey’s late father, Governor Robert P. Casey, helped fund EOTC’s first parenting and child abuse prevention program through his Drug Policy Council,” Williams added. “Senator Casey’s mother, Ellen Casey, helped establish the first Family Council when EOTC developed the Scranton Area Family Center as a collaborative resource for local families. Senator Casey continues to actively work to prevent child abuse and neglect, to fund child nutrition and education programs, to preserve the Children’s Health Insurance Program and to promote home visitation programs that help to break the cycle of poverty. He will speak about the importance of good corporate citizens and good citizens of the community.” The event will begin with cocktail hour on the second floor of the Scranton Cultural Center, followed by a short program in the main ballroom. Casey, Quinn and officials from VaxServe and Sanofi Pasteur will present checks to EOTC and the Boys and Girls Clubs of NEPA. Williams noted that VaxServe and Sanofi Pasteur cover all costs associated with the event. “As a result, all money raised from sponsorships and ticket sales go directly to our two benefactors,” he said. Following the cocktail hour and the check presentation, attendees will be served dinner, followed by dancing to the music of Paul LaBelle and The Exact Change. “Attendees can once again expect a first class event with wonderful food, entertainment and inspiring words from our dignitaries,” said Williams. “Most of all, they can expect to feel a great sense of pride, knowing that their support will directly benefit children and families in need. “This event is unique in that 100 percent of money raised from sponsorships and ticket sales goes directly to EOTC’s child development programs for infants and toddlers from families in need and the Boys and Girls Clubs of NEPA after school and summer camp programs.” The Lackawanna County Community Fundraiser started in 2008 as a result of the vision of Damian Braga, the senior vice president of Global Commercial Operations at Sanofi Pasteur to create a safety net for local, critical non-profit organizations, according to Williams. “Over $140,000 has been raised in the first three years. The 2011 event on Sept. 22 will be a record- breaking year and will bring the four year total to well over $200,000,” said Williams. Tickets are $200. Tables of 10 are available at $1,800.

While there, he was instrumental in building a new parish center. Upon his departure from St. Joseph’s Church, he traveled South to Kingston where he spent six years at St. Ignatius Church, serving as pastor. He said he is most proud of how he was able to foster a real strong social justice program where he and his parish supported members of the community who might need spiritual, material support

County hosts ribbon cutting at park

Lackawanna County Commissioners Michael J. Washo, Corey D. O’Brien and Bruce A. Smallacombe, along with state and local officials, including former state Rep. Jim Wansacz, held a ribbon cutting ceremony Aug. 30 at the Abington Community Park for handicapped accessibility improvements including new restrooms, paths and parking spaces. Lackawanna County allocated $23,115 in Community Development Block Grant program funds to construct the handicapped parking spaces and wheelchair accessible paths that lead to the restrooms and to the county-built Boundless Playground. Engineering costs were covered by the Abington Joint Recreation Board. In addition, former state Rep. Wansacz obtained $39,000 in state funds to build the handicapped-accessible restroom facility. Lackawanna County opened the $250,000 Boundless Playground at the Abington Community Park in 2009, as one of three Boundless Playgrounds constructed by the

county. Wheelchair-bound youngsters are able to access slides through ramps, swings have special high backs and quiet activity areas are provided for autistic children, among other features. The Commissioners also previously allocated a $45,000 Lacka-

wanna Environmental Conservation and Outdoor Recreation (LECOR) grant to the park to assist with construction of a pavilion. Funding for the Boundless Playground came from the county Landfill Trust and state gaming money, while the LECOR grant came from the Landfill

Trust. No county property tax dollars were used to fund projects at the park. The park is overseen by the Abington Joint Recreation Board, which includes representatives from Clarks Green, Clarks Summit, Glenburn Township, South Abington Township and Waverly Township.

Marley’s Mission among Nicholson postal system Top 10 ‘Best New Charities’ celebrates 200 years

StayClassy, a leader in social fundraising for nonprofits, announced Aug. 30 that Marley’s Mission, a local equine therapy organization based in Lake Ariel has succeeded in becoming a Top 10 Finalist in the 3rd Annual CLASSY Awards in the category of Best New Charity. StayClassy and their sponsors are offering more than $150,000 to CLASSY Award Winners. Not only does the Mission have the distinction of being in the Top 10 Best New Charities nationwide; StayClassy has further announced that as a result of public voting, Marley’s Mission has landed in the Top 3 Best New Charities in the United States. The mission aims to bring the healing power of horses and their positive impact to children who have experienced trauma. The CLASSY Awards are the largest philanthropic awards ceremony in the country, recognizing the most outstanding philanthropic achievements by charities, businesses and individuals nationwide. More than 2,000 nominations were submitted for consideration. After a vetting process, StayClassy posted each nomination as an article on the CLASSY Awards Achievements Blog, putting a national spotlight on amazing philanthropic stories from across the United States. Marley’s Mission generated more than 1,000 Facebook “Likes” to reach the Top 25 judging round. Out of thousands of nominations, the judges narrowed the list down to the Top 25

Marley’s Board asks volunteers to ‘Buy a Mile’ to San Diego

According to Marley’s Mission President Gene Talerico the Board of Directors, staff and supporters of Marley’s Mission understand the significance of its recent award from StayClassy: the ability to bring the healing power of horses and their positive impact on children who have experienced trauma to the national stage. “We know the Mission must be represented in San Diego on September 17, but, how do we get there? Our hope is to ask our dedicated supporters to help us “Buy a Mile” to San Diego. San Diego, Ca. is 2,762 miles from our campus in Lake Ariel. The cost for the Mission to be represented by two people at the Awards Ceremony will be about $2,000. That’s .72 cents a mile. So we are asking our dedicated supporters to spare some pocket change and help us buy our miles to San Diego,” he said. For example: A gourmet coffee costs about $2.50: that’s 3 1/4 miles; A McDonald’s Quarter Pounder meal costs about $5.50: that’s almost 8 miles; Dinner for two costs about $40: that’s almost 35 miles. Those interested in “Buying a Mile,” are asked to send a donation to Marley’s Mission, PO Box 505, Scranton, PA 18501 or donate online at http://www.marleysmission.com/donate-now/.

The post office department has approved Nicholson having a First Day Cancellation Sept. 9. On this day, outgoing mail will be canceled with a special stamp to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the postal system in Nicholson. According to Marion G. Sweet, Chair of the Nicholson Heritage Association, the first post office was established in Nicholson in 1811 at the bottom of Roberts Hill or, as it is now known, Tunnel Hill. The post office was known by the name of Nicholson or Thorn-Bottom. At that time, there were no postage stamps and no rural free delivery. Packages could not be sent by mail. Letters were not in envelopes. Rates were based on the distance that the letter was sent. Caleb Roberts received his postmaster appointment from President James Madison on July 1, 1811. He served for 17 years. The name Thornbottom was used for the post office until Nathan Bacon changed the name of the settlement to Baconville and later to Bacon Town. Bacon was appointed postmaster by President John Quincy Adams on Jan. 4, 1828. He moved the post office to his place of resi-

dence, which was known as Bacon Tavern, and served for 22 years. Bacon Tavern was located on what is now known as Route 92. On May 2, 1854, Albert D. Kline was the station agent for the railroad and appointed postmaster. He moved the post office to the railroad station, Nicholson Depot. It was in October 1822 when the post office moved to the corner of Main and Walnut Streets under postmaster Fred M. Williams, was made a thirdclass office and rural free deliveries were established. The first rural carrier was Edward T. Wilbur. His route 22 miles long and it took from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to complete. His annual pay was $648. In 1909, under postmaster Francis N. Boyle, Walter L. Bell was appointed rural carrier. It was estimated that he covered about 300,000 miles in his 25 years of service, according to research done by Rev. Garford Williams. Lemuel Park began his rural delivery route in 1914 and worked more than 25 years. In 1923, the office was moved down the street next to what is now Lochen’s store. Bert D. Stephens was postmaster .

Layton Wallace was appointed the postmaster in 1936 and remained as such until 1956. Nicholson attained its present second-class rating in 1945. The Post Office Real Estate section contacted the bank in 1960 and requested an option on the Werkheiser property. Bids were opened to provide a one-story brick building.It was to be a privately owned taxpaying property provided to the Post Office Department on a lease. An agreement was reached and August 12, 1961 was the dedication. Hugh Saxton was the postmaster, having been appointed in 1956. Senator Hugh Scott and Congressman William Scranton were among the dignitaries to speak . Officers in recent years after Hugh Saxton were Nelson C. Stull, appointed officer-incharge on June 22, 1977; Bonnie L. Griffis, appointed officer-in-charge Oct. 21, 1977; Robert G. Downer, appointed the postmaster on Jan. 28, 1978; Leland A. Coy, appointed officer-in-charge Nov. 3, 1988; Stephen E. Spencer, appointed on Feb. 3, 1989. The current postmaster, Georgina E. Walters, was appointed on June 3, 1989.

Zaydon said that attendees of the “Keys to a Successful Future” breakfast can expect to “enjoy a wonderful, catered and delicious breakfast. They are very informed by the time they leave. They get a joy out of seeing people in

the community, as well as seeing their friends. It is both a social and educational event,” added Zaydon. This is one of the two fundraisers the commission hosts every year. The commission’s main goal is to “help women and children in Lackawanna County and make life just a little bit better for them. There are so many people out there that need help,” said Zaydon.

The good we do for the community is wonderful. We need and want people to come to us,” said Zaydon, who first became involved in the commission when she was encouraged by a family friend. “We do a lot of things for women and children locally. We are very involved in this community,” she added. “I feel like my college teaching background has been so helpful. I loved this commission since the day I joined and I still love it,” she said.

Men filled with evil. Will they prevail? Reason, sanity, understanding not there. People running and screaming from the crumbling tower. Who is responsible? Their leader a coward. Families now broken from a loss so unspoken. Our country is angry. Our world now divided. Digging out bodies. Praying love ones are found American united together in pain, keeping faith alive. The fabric of America is starting to tear The human face of this tragedy is too much too bear. Please God stretch out your arms to touch every heart in need. Bless all your children. For today our country bleeds! - Kathleen Walsh

Who directed "Contagion" which will open at the Dietrich Friday, Sept. 9?

I can’t believe September is already here. Time just goes by so quickly. This month the Dietrich truly has something for everyone. For little ones, the Dietrich Children’s Theater will be back with live performances this Friday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 10, at 11 a.m. They will be presenting “Lon Po Po: A Little Red Riding Hood Story from China.” In this story, three small children out in the Chinese countryside bid farewell to their father as he travels overnight to visit their sick grandmother, or “po po.” The children are cautioned not to open the door to anyone, as there might be a wolf, or “lon,” lurking about. But when there is a knock on the door late at night, is it their po po or really an evil lon po po instead? I think kids will have a fun time finding similarities and differences between the Red Riding Hood story they are familiar with and this one. The show is very interactive and audience members will learn a few Chinese words from the production. After the show, storyteller Fiona Powell and the cast will take the audiences questions about the play. We would like to thank the Pennsylvania Humanities Council for sponsoring the production. All ages are welcome to attend. Admission is free and tickets will be available at the door or by calling 570.996.1500. The next big event at the Dietrich is Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. Beatles scholar Kenneth Womack will give a multi-media presentation that brings the story of The Beatles to life. He will trace the band’s creative arc from their days in Liverpool to the mean streets of Hamburg, through “Abbey Road” and to the twilight of its career. Womack will also help us explore the origins of the group’s compositions as well as the songwriting and recording practices that brought them to fruition. Admission is free. This program is also sponsored by the Pennsylvania Humanities CounSee Movies, Page 10

Patrons of the Abington Community Library who enjoy its large print collection will find new titles, both fiction and non-fiction, ready for circulation this week. Newcomers on the large print shelves include: “Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything� by Jonathan Foer. After a year of memory training, the author found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Here he draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory and tricks of the mentalist’s trade to transform the reader’s understanding of human remembering. “Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight� by Alexandra Fuller. The author’s memoir of her African childhood is a diary of an unruly life in a frequently inhospitable place, told with humor that is sometimes hilarious, as she looks back with both rage and love at the life of her extraordinary family. “The Idea of America� by Gordon S. Wood. This book helps us to recapture the fears and hopes of the generation that fought the American Revolution and its attempts to translate their ideals into a working democracy. Wood observes that what may simply seem like audacity to 21st century readers was considered radical in the 18th century. Back to the books It’s back to the books at the Abington Community Library in September. We have a couple of new collaborations that may pique your interest. The first is with the Abington Business and Professional Association, along with the University of Scranton Small Business Development Center, with refreshments provided by Penn Security Bank. Together, we are offering a series of business-oriented presentations titled “Keeping Your Small Business in Business.� The series is free and open to all business and organization managers and owners. The first offering, Social Media, will be held Sept. 14. Another new collaboration compliments the ever popular Pages and Places Festival, being held in Scranton. On Sept. 20, we will have Bill Black discuss the upcoming festival and what it has to offer. Community members will learn how events such as this contribute the emergence of Scranton as a “Learning City.�

will be taught “by a local gentleman who is schooled in the Welsh language,” said Watkins, adding that other local people fluent in the language may assist with teaching as well. “Years ago our local St. David’s Society attempted to have a Welsh teaching class, but it fell through when the teacher was not able to be available,” said Watkins. “Welsh is a very difficult language to learn, more difficult than Latin. The class members will learn the fundamentals of the language, word pronunciation, reading of Welsh reading material and many other

aspects of the language that will make them able to speak and read Welsh.” Watkins added that attendees will “learn a language that they can carry with them the rest of their lives. Hopefully trips to Wales where they can utilize the language will be planned. Greater appreciation for Welsh traditions and their Welsh heritage can be expected from festival attendance. Also, meeting fellow Welshmen from all over the U.S., Canada, Wales and England is a plus to attend. “Naturally I would encourage anyone with a Welsh background to attend

and help continue a Welsh tradition that goes back many years,” said Watkins. “Also to try and get younger persons with Welsh backgrounds is a must for the future.” According to Watkins, they are expecting around 1,500 Welshmen and friends to attend the 2012 festival, noting that the festival is held in different places each year. “It has been many years since the festival has been in the northeast, where there is a large bed of Welshmen,” said Watkins. “We would help members and friends would attend even if

Hexagon celebrates Playwrights’ 5 years of student art Project launches

The Hexagon Project celebrated its fifth year with an opening on First Friday in Scranton, this past Friday, Sept 2, at ArtsWorks Art Gallery 503 Lackawanna Ave. There will be a special student showing September 11 at ArtsWorks from 6 to 9 p.m. Fourteen Abington Heights High School art students participated in the Hexagon Project. The students who participated in this project are Joey Hamersly, Evan Petrini, Alexandra Sebastian, Julie Polovitch, Tom Williams, Angelo Brutico, Melissa Keisling, Celina Mahalidge, Kate Crowley, Emma Black, Karina Glendon, Bobby Michaels, Eleanor Wilson and David Lange. The Interdependence Day Hexagon Project showcases hexagons created by junior high and high school students both regional and worldwide, for its celebration in September. Students are asked to address issues of social justice, human rights, civil society,

democracy, freedom of speech and religious worship, women’s children’s rights and the environment through research, dialog and the arts process in any medium. The goal of the project is to communicate a unifying theme about Interdependence through the production of art that reflects skill in various media, processes and techniques and exhibit these works in a public forum. To demonstrate interdependence by working collaboratively through artmaking and theater activities, during a public exhibition opening in order to concretize the spirit of interdependence for attendees. To demonstrate, in an international forum, that young people are aware of and can respond to the issues and concepts surrounding interdependence through artistic expression by the creation of virtual gallery and blogspot on the Interdependence Day Website. For more information, visit www.interdependencedaynepa.org.

it was for one day of the scheduled four. It takes a year of planning to put the event together which includes selection choirs and entertainers from Wales to come and participate. There’s nothing like 1,400 voices plus choirs singing at one time. If shivers down the spine are to occur, it will happen during the singing.” The First Congregational Church is located at 500 Luzerne Ave, West Pittston.

CLARKS SUMMIT- The Country Club of Scranton, in association with the Marian C. Bell Foundation, will be hosting the sixth annual P.A.R. for Parkinson’s Golf Event Sept. 19. The gathering will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for research for a cure for the disease. The Fox Foundation was selected, and has been selected over the years, for their work as the most aggressive and largest private funder of Parkinson’s research. Bridget Bell started P.A.R. for Parkinson’s six years ago for her mother, Marian, who has had the disease for almost 25 years. She says that thus far, support has been terrific and growth has been consistent. “We continue to get new support from first-timers,” said Bell. “We also have people who’ve been to every [tournament], and repeated sponsors.” P.A.R. for Parkinson’s will likely have full attendance again this year, as it had in 2010. The event includes an 18hole golf tournament, cocktails, dinner and both silent and live auctions. This year’s auction includes various items, like a condo for a week in Key West, Fla. and a trip to New York City. The New York trip includes dinner at a Mario Batali restaurant, tickets to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and behind-thescenes tickets to the Today Show, among others. More items are to be added to the list. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event will benefit two individuals with different connections to the event—Jay Saunders of Scranton and Sheila Uhl of Stamford, Conn. Uhl, 45, suffered a massive stroke on December 26,

.C. Show put on a performance Saturday afternoon, Sept. 3,contributing in every phase of the game against Hazleton as the Abington Heights Comets downed the Cougars 28-14 at “The Pit” in Clarks Summit. The sophomore receiver caught eight passes for 116 yards and two scores. He also intercepted a pass while playing cornerback, and he recovered a fumble on a special teams play. “All of our players were resilient today,” said Abington Heights Coach Joe Repshis. “We responded well in the second half after some fundamental mistakes early.” The Comets were fundamentally sound on the opening offensive series of the game. Junior quarterback, Dante Pasqualichio, led Abington Heights on a 65yard drive in just over two minutes that took just seven plays. It appeared that the series was going to be cut short on third

and seven from the Comets 38 -yard line. Pasqaulichio was seemingly wrapped up in the backfield when he spun free and completed a 13-yard shuffle pass to senior tailback Corey Degilio that kept the drive alive. Two plays later, Show caught a pass down the right sideline and rumbled 45 yards down to the Cougar one- yard line. Sophomore running back Quinn Karam took it in from there on a one- yard plunge and staked the Comets to a 7-0 lead after one quarter. After a failed Cougar drive, junior wide receiver Jamie Henzes fielded a punt at the Cougar 46 -yard line to open the second quarter. He raced 42 yards down the sideline where he was pushed out at the fouryard line. Once again the Comets called Karam’s number as he bulldozed his way into the end zone to give Abington Heights a 14-0 lead with 11:42 to go in the first half.

Hazleton had a drive stalled halfway through the second quarter as a result of back- to -back penalties. The Cougars were whistled for nine penalties, totaling 60 yards in the game. Despite the flags, Hazleton still showed signs of life just before halftime. Senior running back Brian Campbell burst through the line and sprinted 22 yards to the Cougar 44. However, another penalty seemed to kill their momentum, and on the very next play, Show stepped in front of a Chad Hoffman bullet pass and returned it 56 yards down to the Cougar 10-yard line as time expired. Hazleton appeared to have adjusted their game plan at the half and came out running the ball on a series of sweeps that seemed to perplex Abington Heights defenders. Senior Yousef Guzman shed two tackles and broke off a run to the outside for 13 yards early in the

DALTON - The second annual Go Green Bike Tour will take place Oct. 1 at the Lackawanna State Park, Dalton. The site will serve as the beginning and end point of the tour. Bill Kern, Countryside Conservatory executive director, said he was pleased with how the inaugural event ran last year and is hopeful for an even bigger turnout this year. “It went great,” Kern said. “We had over 100 riders last year. Everyone seemed to enjoy the route we planned out. We received a lot of positive feedback, so we decided to do it again. We’re shooting for 200 riders this year. Because of an increase in sponsors we were able to reduce the registration fee, so we’re hoping to attract more riders.” There will be seven different bike routes available: a one-mile beginner’s trail, a 16.8-mile intermediate trail, an 18-mile expert trail, a 18.2-mile beginner’s trail, a 29.3-mile intermediate trial, a 62-mile trail and a route for parents and children under 12. In addition to the many bike routes, a trail hike will also be offered this year for a cost of $10. “This year we added a hiking category as an option,” Kern said. “We recognized that not everybody rides bikes, but would like to participate. We thought it was a nice touch to add.” Participants will be treated to live music preformed by local classic rock band, High Falls. A variety of food including hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers and beverages will be provided. All riders must wear a helmet to parSee Bike , Page 3

SCRANTON- The Scranton Prep Cavaliers snapped a 14-year losing streak to Lakeland High School, defeating the Chiefs, 26-20, in a Lackawanna Football Conference contest at Scranton Memorial Stadium Sept. 3. “I thought we did a great job and played hard the whole game,” Scranton Prep head coach Nick Donato said. “We just hung in there. Defensively we had a rough first half, but they are a very good offensive team. Both defenses were a little suspect, it came down to the second half. Both defenses tightened it up and our kids made a big drive at the end when it counted.” The Cavaliers were led by running back Marshall Kupinski, who was a part of all four Scranton Prep touchdowns.

CLARKS SUMMIT - This year, the fans in the stands at the Abington Heights High School football games are going to be as organized as the players on the field, thanks to the Blue Crew. The Blue Crew, the school’s newest club, will be selling blue T-shirts to the Abington Heights student body. The T-shirts are priced at $10 and will gain the students free admission to any home, regular season sporting event during the year. “The goal is to get the school together in an organized body and cheer for the team, just like a regular student section would, but a little more organized, we all ABINGTON JOURNAL /DON MCGLYNN have the same outfit on,” Abington Heights Melanie Fricchione is shown above. said Blue Crew founder Kevin Murray. “The whole Blue Crew student section has been a long-standing tradition, but just the addition of the Tshirts, and trying to get us organized, has gone on the last few weeks and everyone’s been very supportive, especially the football BY DON MCGLYNN said Suitch. team.” dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com Mahler will be a co-capMurray said he is also hoping this encourages stuThe Abington Heights and tain of the team along with senior Katie Jaeger. dents to come out to even Lackawanna Trail High Abington opened their more high school sporting School field hockey teams season Sept. 2 with a 2-1 loss events, as the club is planwill both have to deal with at home to Wallenpaupack. ning on attending at least some changes in order to Mahler scored for the Lady one sporting event for each experience success this seaComets school team to support the son.

stands the importance of a strong fan base, and said part of the inspiration for the club came from hearing an outcry from his fellow students for more school spirit. The 17-year old South Abington Twp. resident spent last year abroad in Venezuela thanks to the Rotary Club of the Abingtons. He returned to the area in late July and rather than take some time off, he got right to work starting the Blue Crew about a week ago. He credits his classmates and the faculty at Abington Heights High School with being able to get the Blue Crew together so quickly. “I’m not the only one who’s doing this, there are a lot of people helping,” said Murray. “Just to name a few, there’s a lot, but Jake Goodman, Kate Grow and Cali Crapella, they’ve all helped out a lot.” “(Athletic Director Jeremy) Ruby, Chris Calder

(Abington Heights High School teacher), and the three principals (Pamela Murray, Andrew Snyder and Marc Wyardt); they’re our advisors, and they’ve been supportive.” The Blue Crew has also found help in the community. Tom Parry, owner of Nickie’s Fabulous Hoagies, has donated the Blue Crew their first 100 T-shirts, and will donate another 100 once they sell out. “I think he’s doing a great thing for the district and the community,” said Ruby of Parry. “These are tough economic times, and we really think he’s doing an amazing thing for the local community. So, I want to say kudos to Tom, as well as the senior students for coming together joining forces here for their classmates and their school.” “This is a fun idea, I think Kevin and his friends are doing a great job. We’re looking forward to seeing

this come to fruition at the school, we’re all for school spirit and making the events that much more enjoyable.” Murray said, based on the initial reaction he’s gotten, he believes they will be able to sell the first 200 shirts easily. He has even received inquiries from parents asking if they would be able to purchase the shirts, and the school is looking into whether or not it will be a possible to make another shirt for members of the community. The T-shirts will be available to purchase at the main office in the high school and at the Comets’ next home football game Sept. 17 against Tunkhannock. For more information call 570.585.5300.

the third quarter. The Cougars last real chance to remain in the game came on their ensuing offensive drive. Hazleton continued to pound the ball to the outside and drove out top their 40 -yard line. Hoffman than executed a quarterback keeper and sprinted 29 yards down to the Abington Heights 30. The yellow flags appeared once again and a chop block penalty negated the quarterback scramble and brought the drive to a screeching halt. It was Show time once again when the speedy receiver lined up as the long snapper on an Abington Heights punt. Show hiked the ball and

sprinted downfield, diving on a Hazleton muff at the Cougar 41 yard line. “I just snap it and get downfield as fast as I can,” said Show. “Pacyna had great hang time and all of us on special teams got down there.” Three plays later, junior receiver, Conor Dickinson, got “up there” as he made a sprawling, leaping grab between two defenders who sandwiched him. Dickinson held on to the ball as he slammed to the ground, keeping the drive alive on the third and two play. Pasqaulichio hit Show from 18 yards out this time in the opposite corner of the end zone. The touchdown made it

28-6 with 11:53 remaining in the contest. “The two corner routes were out and ups that Dante and I have worked on,” Show said. “We made adjustments to the way they were playing us at half time and it paid off.” Show attributed the big night to the total team effort. “This is what is great about football,” he said. “Everyone came in and contributed.” Coach Repshis agreed about the team effort. “Sure there are things we need to shore up on defense,” Repshis said. “But as we rely on players like J.C. to lead, the mistakes will be eliminated.”

CAVALIERS

Lakeland linebacker Kyle Kiehart on the Cavaliers next possession, but the Chiefs could not capitalize on the turnover as Scranton Prep defensive end Ryan Rudalavage recovered a Nichols fumble at the 22 yard line. On the next play, Scranton Prep quarterback Griff DiBileo connected with Rock Magnotta to the 45 yard line, however Magnotta was stripped of the ball, which was recovered by Lakeland’s J.J. Rojenches at the Cavaliers 42. The Chiefs generated points off the turnover when Kiehart found Alex Filarsky for a 31-yard touchdown. After a missed extra point, Lakeland led 20-12 with 6:55 remaining in the second quarter. On the Cavaliers next possession, DiBileo connected with Kupinski on a screen pass for a 30-yard touchdown, the result of a sevenplay 62-yard drive. Marino was stopped by Lakeland’s Billy Thomas on the twopoint conversion attempt. The Chiefs led 20-18 with 3:27 to go in the first half. DiBileo completed five passes on seven attempts for 80 yards, while Timlin had 11 completions on 22 passes for 174 yards. “We’ve been back and forth with them,” Donato

We told DiBileo you’re gonna get right in, I have a lot of confidence in you, too. That’s how we plan on using them all year.” The Cavaliers recovered a Nichols fumble at the Chiefs 39-yard line to start the fourth quarter, but Scranton Prep failed to capitalize on the good field position. After a Lakeland threeand-out, punter Alex Filarsky booted a 62-yard punt, putting the ball at the Cavaliers 13-yard line with 7:37 left in the fourth quarter Timlin engineered a 12play scoring drive eventually hitting Kupinski on a 14-

yard touchdown pass with 2:56 remaining in the game. Kupinski was stopped on the initial two-point attempt, but a Lakeland face mask penalty gave Scranton Prep another shot, which Kupinski converted giving the Cavaliers a 26-20 lead. “We knew we were locked back deep, but I told the guys in the huddle that we’ve done this before from freshman year, we can get it done,” Timlin said. “We just took it play by play and got that one to punch through. It feels great to get a win like this for the program.” Kupinski sealed the victory when he intercepted a Kiehart pass on third-andnine from the Chiefs 23-yard line.
