TUNKHANNOCK - The Susquehanna River flooded streets of downtown Tunkhannock last week, as a result of the Tropical Storm Lee, forcing many local businesses to close their doors, including Gay’s True Value Hardware, Bridge Street Market, Brick’s Supermarket and the Dietrich Theater. As a result of non-stop community support, some of those businesses will not be closed for long. Dietrich Theater Executive Director Hildy Morgan said there were dozens of people cleaning up the mess the storm caused when she arrived at the theater Friday, Sept. 9 and were still there helping out Monday. The volunteers ranged from individuals, to groups like Tunkhannock High

TASTE OF THE ABINGTONS

Newsies Pizza, located at 100 East Main St., Dalton, will make its first appearance at this year’s Rotary of the Abingtons Taste of the Abingtons, scheduled for Sept. 25. Owned by Tony and Miriam Warenzak and Katrina Ceczoli, Newsies Pizza has made a name for itself in just a little under two years, and Tony said he feels the event in September is the perfect way to keep word of the restaurant spreading. “I think it’s a good way to give people that haven’t tried us yet a chance to taste what we have to offer, and what’s different from other pizza shops in the area,� said Tony. He added that one difference is the care that goes into

President of the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board Bill Risse was adamant when he said, “What we do as a whole and as a team has made the many things we do successful. It takes a real good ensemble to make this work.� The “many things� Risse addressed were programs the board has put together but are primarily run by a core of volunteers. They include the Community Guard, the Dog Park and Earth Camp. “We’ve tried not to become programmers because it is so demanding. At some point it will have to be managed by an employee. We’ve spend a great deal of time developing a master plan, which takes in the input of the community. Though we have volunteers, they can come to us for help. All projects are joint-rec projects.� Established in 1972, the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board is made up of 24 municipality representatives, who have made it their goal to provide quality outdoor recreational opportunities for the community. The board manages the Abington Area Community Park and was created when the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania deeded surplus land to the boroughs of Clarks Green and Clarks Summit and the townships of Abington, Glenburn, South Abington and Waverly. According to Risse, what the board is focused on is the development of the physical aspect. It includes the Boundless Playground, developing parking, sidewalks, bathrooms and a pavilion lakeside to be used by families for reunions and graduation parties. As a result of the higher profile of the lake, he said, the Forever Young Fishing Derby has become an annual event. “Each brought more and more participation from the community,� Risse said. Now, the board is preparing to bid on

Ransom reviews subdivision of estate

At the upcoming 68th Annual Waverly Community House Antiques Show and Sale, expect to find a “clever mix of the words and worlds of rustic/country and luxury materials that is at once relaxing, refreshing, and reinvigorating,” according to Paul Kairis, show house manager, shown decorating the lobby.

BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

RANSOM TWP. - The Ransom Township Board of Supervisors was forced to table the subdivision of the late Dorothy Richards’ 160-acre estate on Bald Mountain Road during its monthly meeting Sept. 6. The estate was left to Richards’ children after she died three years ago, and is to be divided so that each beneficiary receives a fair and equal share. Ernest D. Preate Jr., Esq., who represents the Richards’ estate, presented the plans to the board and requested they approve the subdivision. The plans have already been approved by the Ransom Township Planning Commission to be reviewed by the Lackawanna County Planning Commission. Supervisors explained that the normal procedure for a matter like this is for the county’s planning commission to review plans and send township comments before the supervisors would approve them. At the time of the meeting, the county had not yet reviewed the plans. Even if the county does not approve the plans, supervisors can still approve, but supervisors were hesitant to deter from procedure. “The county planning commission is advisory only. The final decision rests with the board,” said Township Solicitor William T. Jones, Esq. Preate said he understood the supervisors’ concern, but noted time is an issue. “We’re in a bit of a bind because…you have a year to get the estate straightened out, we’re in our third year now. So, interest and penalties are building up, and taxes, and so we really need to get this approved as quickly as we possibly can,” said Preate. Preate took over the duties of representing the estate from Richard Cohen of New Jersey, who died in April of this year. The Lackawanna County Planning Commission met Sept. 8, and the supervisors agreed to discuss the possibility of holding a special meeting after receiving comments. At the time of this paper’s publication, Sept.13, no meeting date had been set. The supervisors will meet again Oct. 3 at 7 p.m.

The lobby display theme is “Ruxe,” which is “the clever mix of the words and worlds of rustic/country and luxury materials that is at once relaxing, refreshing and reinvigorating,” according to Paul Kairis, show house manager and owner of HÔM Personal Interiors. “It (Ruxe) has been coming for years with the introduction of patina into homes and I felt it was particularly important in this area because we are in a rural and rustic setting. This was an agricultural area as it started – pastoral and bucolic - so I thought, let’s incorporate the hottest trend right here (at the Comm). It’s very, very important in the design world right now and important to Waverly and the Abingtons. It’s romantic and luxurious, but also giving into the nature and the rustic sensibility of where we live, using things that Twinkle and things that are rusty right next to each other. It’s the contrast that makes it very dramatic,” he said. He added, “It (the display) is a mix of glitzy things like candelabra, old mechanical wheels from barns, tiger stripes on the Louis XVI style chairs, an antique sawbuck table, crystals and modern art…The flower arrangements, the food, the pumpkins out on the front steps. Just walking around this block – no matter where you live, if you want to feel like fall and don’t want to drive far or go through a lot of trouble just get in your car, park in the front of the Comm, come to the antique show ...” Show chair Linda Bush has announced music will also be part of the 68th annual show. She said, “One of the things we’re doing is working with the colleges and high schools to bring in an arrangement of different musical performers throughout the weekend. We’re going to have someone playing piano, Broadway tunes out on the lawn and a jazz trio in the coffee shop.” Vendors

mily Burke and Willa Farrell, both 9, of Clarks Summit, were baking brownies Sept. 10 and watching television reports of the flooding in West Pittston when they had an idea. Colleen Jumper, their former teacher at Our Lady of Peace School in Clarks Green, lives in West Pittston. “We decided to raise money and give it to her (Jumper) so that she could give it to her neighbors,” Farrell said. At first they wanted to have a lemonade stand, the girls said, but they didn’t have any lemonade. So, they decided to have a treat sale. They made two batches of brownies and a batch of rice crispy treats, but still needed more. So, they called Emily’s sister Julia Burke, 11, and her friend Sarah Murray, 11, who

were down the street baking cupcakes. They agreed to help and added two batches of cupcakes to the sale, which took place on Saddle Loop Road, Clarks Summit. To draw people to their treat sale, the girls said they passed some fliers around the neighborhood and made a poster, which they hung in the yard. When the money was counted after the sale, the four girls were happy to find they had

raised $150 to help the flood victims. “Our neighbors were really generous,” Julia said. The girls said that when they presented their former teacher with the money at school on Monday, she was “really happy and was crying.” Jumper said she was impressed with how the girls were able to put their feelings into action. “It was incredibly compassionate and caring of them,” she said. “I am just truly touched by their compassion at such a young age.”

started pitching in Thursday afternoon, Sept. 8, taking the seats out of the theaters and storing them in a safe place during the storm. On Monday, volunteers were busy reinstalling the seats and cleaning in preparation for the grand reopening, scheduled for Sept.16. The Dietrich will reopen in time for the 2011Fall Film Festival opening night gala. In addition to volunteers, Morgan credited employee Erica Rogler with the theater being able to avoid delay or cancellation of the festival, and only having to close for one week. “Honestly, the best thing in the world that happened was Erica (Rogler), who’s actually a Penn State graduate in engineering and is our cultural director. She just knew what to do. She knew what to tell people to do. She broke things down into categories and said ‘We have to do this, this, this and this, and this is the time frame,’ ” said Morgan. At the time of this interview, Sept.12, Morgan said the staff was on schedule and should be ready to open by Friday. And, while they will be able to welcome customers and show films, they are still far from finished with the flood effects. The storm ruined the HVAC system in two of the Dietrich’s four theaters: the Dwight R. Evans Memorial Theater and Eric Michael Murray Memorial Theater. Morgan said that because of the current weather she feels both theaters should be workable without the system for September and October, but

added that it will need to be replaced before winter. “What we need more than anything in the world right now is donations,” said Morgan. “If we don’t get that system in, we would be ruined, because we need four theaters to run the programming.” Morgan estimated the Dietrich will need to raise approximately $100,000 to pay for the new system and make up for the income lost being closed. The Dietrich Theater is a 501-C-3 non-profit and any donation a person makes is tax deductible. Donations can be sent to Dietrich Theater, 60 East Tioga Street, Tunkhannock, PA 18657, or individuals can call 570.996.1500 to use a credit card. A number of business and home owners in the Tunkhannock area are still cleaning and repairing damage. Those interested in volunteering can call 570.836.2828, or visit the Disaster Center set up at the Tunkhannock Area School District Administration Building, located at 41Philadelphia Ave. Other groups in Tunkhannock found methods to process the storm effects. In the face of the disaster, Nativity BVM Parish in Tunkhannock held Mass in a temporary worship site. The church held its regular weekend and weekday Mass schedules at Father Nallin Hall behind the church, which has been set up while the church is being cleaned and renovated. This site will be used until further notice. For details, call 570.836.3275.

It could be worse than this, better than this, it’s hard to know.” Another major topic discussed was the academic goals.

Mahon said, “These are familiar to all the board members because they are continuations of ongoing initiatives that are at various stages of completion.” The academic goals included Integrated lessons and the 100 Book Challenge, the implementation of Everyday Math and Big Ideas math, as well as the need to develop new math curriculum for eighth grade and high school, reading, English as a second language, and special education. The board also discussed the need for more instruction in writing and grammar. In regard to meaningful opportunities connected to student interests, Mahon said, “We have to talk to our students, and talk to our parents

cate that as we look at our other programs,” said Mahon. A topic of special interest to the public in attendance was the application of technology in the classroom and the need for some policy guidance in regard to social media websites and networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google. Mahon said that while the school discourages any interactions between teachers and students on such websites, there is currently no official policy in place. While the district has no current issues with this topic, board members and the public agreed it is something that needs to be addressed. The Board will gather Sept. 21 at 6:30 p.m. for a business meeting.

University for a Day focuses on world, America Area residents will have the opportunity to experience college through an innovative program offered by the Schemel Forum at The University of Scranton. University for a Day, scheduled for Sept. 17, focuses this year on “America and the World.” Offered every fall, University for a Day features insights from Scranton faculty members and other experts into a variety of topics – with time for discussion. Morning coffee, lunch and a closing reception round out the event, which will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Pearn Auditorium on the second floor of Brennan Hall on campus. “University for a Day is our signature event, offering a rich array of food for thought,” said Sondra Myers, director of the Schemel Forum at The University of Scranton. “Since the program falls on Constitution Day, we will open with one of our nation’s preeminent constitutional scholars, Akhil Amar, J.D., Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University,” said Myers. Amar’s lecture , titled “America’s Unwritten Constitution,” proposes that the U.S. Constitution only begins to map out the fundamental rules that govern modern Americans. Following a discussion with Amar, Joseph Kraus, Ph.D., associate professor of English and theatre at The University of Scranton, will present “Framing Roth.” His lecture traces the career of the prolific author Philip Roth from his early days as the “bad boy” of American Jewish literature to his stature today as one of America’s most distinguished authors. After lunch, University for a Day continues with “Globalization: Its Challenges and Opportunities for an Interdependent World,” presented by David Grewal, Ph.D., J.D., associate professor at Yale Law School and author of “Network Power: The Social Dynamics of Globalization.” Kathryn S. Meier, Ph.D., assistant professor of history at The University of Scranton, will deliver our final lecture, “Environmental Justice for the 21st Century.” Dr. Meier looks to the period when slavery was largely eradicated in our society to understand how sustainability and human justice have gone hand in hand in America and in the world. The participation fee is $25 for non-Schemel Forum members. To register, contact Kym Fetsko, Schemel Forum events coordinator, at 570.941.7816 or fetskok2@scranton.edu.

about what is a meaningful opportunity and what are interests.” He used a hypothetical example where a student in the middle school is taking a technology class and decides to get into Lego Robotics. Then when the student moves up to the high school, he or she takes the required math and science and also gets involved in Project Lead The Way, a four -course sequence for pre-engineering, and as a side activity, gets involved in the robotics program. Then, when the student graduates, if he or she still carries that interest and wishes to continue, it is likely that instead of worrying about tuition, he or she picks a school and receives a scholarship. “We want to be able to dupli-

Abington Heights Middle School students Nick Kerekes and Thomas Stone study a list of the names of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On Sept. 9, the last day of school before the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, Abington Heights Middle School students remembered the victims of the attacks and reflected on the significance of that date. One of the teachers, Mr. Dorohovech, prepared a banner, which stretched across the multi-purpose gym in the school, made up of newspaper pages relating to the attacks, and the PTA donated a Flag of Honor made with the names of the victims. Students, teachers and staff filed through the room throughout the day, while patriotic music played in the background. While for the most part, the children were too young at the time of the attacks to remember anything from that day, these displays gave them the opportunity to get a sense of the enormity of what happened 10 years ago.

Scouts going strong BY ELIZABETH BAUMEISTER

lbaumeister@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Cub Scout Pack 160 is more than 60 years old, but still possesses the same enthusiastic energy as the first through fifth grade boys who make up its membership. Cub Master Steve Rich, who has been with the pack for 17 years, said it is a “very active pack year-round,” providing for the children weekly den meetings, monthly pack meetings, outings to museums and fire and police stations, service projects, summer camps, yearly out-of-state trips and more. Rich said he first decid-

ed to get involved with the pack when his son Jonathan turned eight and joined the Cub Scouts. Rich ended up being his den leader that first year. “I had a lot of fun with it,” Rich said. “The kids kept me going.” Cub Scout Pack 160 is affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 160 and Rich said that when the boys finish in Cub Scouts, many move on to be Boy Scouts. He said that Jonathan, who is now 25, became an Eagle Scout in 2005. Rich stressed that the key to the success of the Cub Scouts is the involvement of the parents. “We have a very dedicated group of parents,” he said.

“Without them, we wouldn’t be the success we are.” The pack held a family day at the Abington Area Community Park Aug. 20 as a launch for the year, and Rich said that although it was planned at the last minute, they had a turnout of about 65 people. This year’s registration for Cub Scout Pack 160 is coming up Sept. 19, and will be held at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church, 1310 Morgan Hwy. from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Cub Scouts can also register at the first pack meeting, also held at the CSUMC Sept. 21 from 6 to 7 p.m.

August was a month in which Troop 160, as usual, did a lot of volunteer work. Troop 160 annually volunteers to park cars at the Our Lady of Snows Church bazaar. We do most of our own parking at the Red Barn Village area. The lots fill up fast and it’s a fun experience getting all of the cars in and out safely. On all three nights of the bazaar, the scouts park cars from 5 to 8 p.m. Afterward we usually go up and enjoy the festivities at the bazaar. Although there weren’t any campouts this month, we did have a meeting to come up with proposed campouts for the year. Campouts must be planned well in advance so we can plan the trip and get the date we want and reserve out spot. Certain trips take several months or even a year to reserve a spot. In past years we’ve gone to the beach, Washington D.C., and even a backpacking trip on the three tallest mountains in Europe. The proposed trips for the 2011/2012 scouting year are as follows. Some of these trips are official but others are still being planned. September is going to be a trip to Gettysburg. For October, two ideas were proposed, either a shooting trip at Goose Pond or an orienteering

December Troop 160 doesn’t have any campouts. January will be the polar bear campout. February is the Klondike. March is the Father and Son. For April/May a trip to either Cooperstown or Philadelphia was proposed. In June scouts wanted to do a snorkeling trip in Rhode Island. July will be Summer Camp. To end the scouting year, will be the canoe trip in August. August is also the month we look back at our summer vacation and remember all of the fun times we’ve had. Remember a scout is cheerful.

GREEN HALLOWEEN® RETURNS TO NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA HOSTED BY COLDWELL BANKER TOWN & COUNTRY PROPERTIES

Local Leader in Real Estate Celebrates ‘Eco-Friendly’ Halloween Costume Swap Again In 2011 CLARKS SUMMIT, PA (August 25, 2011) – National Costume Swap Day returns approximately six weeks from today and Coldwell Banker Town & Country Properties will once again host the event here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Are you tired of paying for costumes that your child will wear only once? This Green Halloween® costume swap, which will take place on October 8, 2011, between 10 A.M. and 3 P.M., offers a solution that will benefit the environment and your wallet. Last year, because of the support from the community and our associates, Halloween was a little greener,” thankfully expresses Greg Solfanelli, REALTOR® and chairperson for the event, for the Greater Scranton Region. “Our costume swap was a ‘joyful success.’ We collected over 230 costumes during our first swap and gave out over eighty in Green Halloween’s® kick-off year. Those who participated in National Costume Swap Day across the country saved cash, not to mention, reducing the waste going into our landfills. We also donated 150 of those remaining to Goodwill, so other children received an opportunity to enjoy them as well.” Like last year, the purpose of this children’s

costume swap (up to the age of sixteen) is to make Halloween healthier for kids and more sustainable for our planet. This event is community-based and is meant to celebrate the true spirit of the Halloween season. Coldwell Banker is allowing costumes to be dropped off through October 7, the day before the swap, at any one of the companies three locations: (Clarks Summit office) 651 Northern Boulevard, Clarks Summit, PA 18411 (North Pocono office) 1250 Church Street, Moscow, PA 18444 (Valley office) 130 Main Street, Blakely, PA 18447. Children’s costumes, which are clean and in good condition, can be brought to any of these three locations. Those donating costumes will receive a token to be redeemed for another costume on the day of the event. The leftover Halloween costumes will be donated to local charities. “This community swap is a Green Halloween® initiative meant to bring healthier and greener alternatives to typical Halloween celebrations,” states Mr. Solfanelli. “It’s also meant to open the eyes of our region to the benefits of recycling their gentlyused costumes here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. For more information or if you’re interested

in volunteering for the event, please contact Greg Solfanelli at greg.solfanelli@coldwellbanker.com or visit Coldwell Banker Town & Country Properties’ Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/coldwellbankernepa.

C.S. council gives support to Abington Community Classroom BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE

rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Mary Ann Nichols and Dori Waters from The Abington Community Classroom (ACC) presented a proposal to the borough to transform the former Clarks Summit Fire House into “an inclusive Gathering Place where residents of the Abingtons and surrounding areas can come together for recreational, educational and artistic programs.” Waters said the organization is in “desperate need” of classroom and studio space. They have been using church basements, but the churches are getting busier and the program is getting bigger and outgrowing the churches. They stated that the Gathering Place would generate income for the borough, create new employment and socialization opportunities and contribute to the revitalization of the Clarks Summit business district, among other advantages. They are hoping to have a coffee bar that would employ people with special needs that would be operated by the Deutsch Institute, employing individuals with special needs that they have trained through their services. “We’re really considering this an all-inclusive environment that would really help high- functioning people with special needs,” Waters said. It would also include an art co-op for local artists. We’re hoping it be a location for community events and an outlet for other community organizations. “I’m really enthused about this project and I hope it goes through,” Council Member Herman Johnson said. “I feel that this building is the community’s building and we should have something downtown where the community can come together and do things. I think your organization has the right idea of bringing this to our community. I think it’s a worthwhile project and I hope all of council supports it.” Borough Manager Virginia

Kehoe gave their organization the support of the borough to continue with their planning. Mayor Harry Kelly recently declared a disaster emergency at 820 W. Grove St. According to Kehoe, a serious subsidence five feet from the property created a hole that is eight feet wide and eight feet deep. As part of the project, the creek will be dug out, encased in pipe and brought out to Atherton Road, where it will be run through the storm system and back into the creek where it opens. “We need to get in there quickly before somebody gets hurt,” Kehoe said. The engineer was scheduled to take a look at the property Sept. 8, according to Kehoe. “There is a definite danger there and it can’t wait until next spring,” she said. According to Kehoe, five bids have had been sent to the borough for the 2011 Paving Project. Council accepted the bid of Popple Construction, the lowest bidder, at a price of $107,253 by a vote of 7-0, contingent upon the engineers review and acceptance of the proposal. Council also accepted the bid of Stark Enterprises at a price of $58,385, the lowest of three bidders, for a stormwater project on West Grove St. by a vote of 7-0, contingent upon the engineers review. Tim Moran, regional sales director of GEMM Energy, proposed a way for the borough to save money on energy to their unmetered street lighting. Moran said the change

would save the borough an estimated $13,000 per year in energy to streetlights. Scranton, Carbondale, Waymart, Honesdale, Elmhurst and WilkesBarre already signed a contract for the service. According to Kehoe, the issue will be placed on next month’s agenda. The borough received one comment regarding the Act 537 Plan during the 30-day comment period. The sewer authority amended the resolution to reflect the comments from the communities. Council voted to approve Resolution 2011-14 of the Act 537 Plan by a vote of 7-0. Council also agreed to restrict parking in front of Dr. Samir Pancholy’s office building at 401 N. State St. Council passed ordinance 2011-04, which bans parking on the south side of North State St., starting 20 feet west of the East Greenwood Avenue center line and extending 200 feet west. According to Kehoe, Pancholy has agreed that the cost of implementing this ban would be afforded by him. Councilman Patrick Williams presenting council president Gerrie Carey with a plaque from the Friends of the Forgotten to the borough as a certificate of appreciation for their support of veterans and their 2011 “You Are Not Forgotten” ride. Carey commended Fire Chief Jake Hoinowski for the volunteer service the firefighters provide to the borough. “You guys do a super job,” she said. “The property is always so well maintained. It is such a good organization. It makes the whole borough proud.” In regard to junior council, Johnson suggested that it might be a good idea to publicize the fact that a student from any school may join as long as he or she is a Clarks Summit resident. He said this may help recruit more members. Council agreed to invite Bob Bass from the Clarks Summit Fire Department to the borough’s work session Sept. 27 to discuss the idea of implementing a public safety program.

Factoryville Boy Scouts build picnic tables Factoryville Boy Scout Troop 175, under the direction of Jamie Reese, built 10 handicapped accessible picnic tables for the Joint Municipal Park located at 150 Creek Rd., Factoryville. This was done by Reese as his Eagle Scout project. More than 20 volunteers, Scouts and parents turned out to assemble these new picnic tables. Shown, above, are members of Factoryville Boy Scout Troop 175 work together to assemble picnic tables.

While the tables were being assembled by Reese and his volunteers, The Factoryville Men’s Civic Club also provided volunteers to continue with the construction of a picnic pavilion. Jeff Higgins of Higgins Construction provided equipment for the project. All labor and equipment is being donated. Building materials for the pavilion and picnic tables are being purchased with the assistance of a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). This picnic pavilion will be used by the public and the 217 youth soccer players that use the park. According to Liz Ratchford, Factoryville director of community development, this project would not be possible without the financial assistance from DCNR and the volunteer labor and donated equipment use by the members of the Factoryville Men’s Civic Club.

Dipti S. Pancholy, MD, a Clarks Summit resident, was recently nominated to receive recognition for Mentorship as part of the AMA Women Physicians Congress Physician Mentor Recognition Program. She was nominated as a physiDipti S. cian mentor Pancholy who has made a difference in the professional life of another physician. This program is designed to recognize physicians who have contributed to the achievements of women in the medical profession. She will be recognized through a special commemorative book to be distributed during the AMA-WPC Caucus at the 2011 Interim Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates Nov. 12, at the Hilton Riverwalk Hotel in New Orleans, La. In addition, she will be recognized on the AMAWPC website and other AMA communication vehicles. She will be presented with a special certificate, along with a copy of the submission form highlighting how you inspired another physician. Pancholy said that when mentoring others, she has offered advice on selecting career direction or specialty. “I generally tell them to pick something that they would be willing to get up in the middle of the night for or be willing to leave in the middle of a fun concert with their family for because of the amount of time and energy one spends at work.” She added, “Leadership is about being able to identify and utilize the team members strengths to benefit of the tasks at hand, maintaining communication within the team and then if all is going well improving on any weaknesses. Preventing errors is a big part of leadership in medicine. All that being said, it is about being able to take responsibility when something goes wrong, too.”

CLARKS SUMMIT CENTENNIAL PHOTO CONTEST

Days before chain hotels and motels came into the Clarks Summit area, there existed the Vogelbacker Hotel. The hotel, located at 206 Depot St., was owned by John Vogelbacker, now deceased, who moved to the Abington area from Dunmore, according to his son Bob Vogelbacker, 86. John Vogelbacker emigrated to America from Germany in 1863, according to his son. John Vogelbacker purchased the hotel in approximately 1900 and ran the business until 1924. The name of the Clarks Summit hotel entails an interesting story. Bob Vogelbacker said his father had several siblings. Outside of John Vogelbacker, the family members spelled their last name Vogelbacher. The sign located on the hotel: “Hotel Vogelbacher.” Bob Vogelbacker said he thinks his father spelled their last name with a “k” instead of an “h” as a mistake when he emigrated. “At those times, people didn’t have to go to school…” said Bob Vogelbacker. John Vogelbacker purchased the hotel building from Walter Tennant, owner of The Tennant House. Bob Vogelbacker said while his father ran the hotel, his mother would cook. “My mother used to cook meals at daytime and my father would take it to men working on the cutoff,” he said, referring to the railroad cutoff in Clarks Summit. John and Sarah Vogelbacker had two sons, John Victor and Bob. John Victor was married to the former Jean Northup, a teacher in the Abington Heights School District for 25 years. John Victor worked for his father for a few years before he began his career

Wine Tasting aids firefighter efforts

They can meet the fire company and spend time with friends, family and significant others,” added Wasko. Wasko said the atmosphere is “very relaxed,” noting that the entertainment provided by Johnny Tsunami, the food and the wine will be “enjoyed by all”. “You can’t beat the wine, the wine is good,” he added. “It’s a great time at the winery and one of their big events.” “We’re looking to purchase new equipment for the firefighters and the trucks and that’s where all the funds go,” he said. Additionally, Wasko said the company is always looking for volunteers. Wasko has been involved for the past 26 years, since he was a teenager. “It’s a form of community service and there is gratification you get from doing that,” he said. Wasko encouraged anyone interested to call the station at 570.587.4545, visit their website at www.jfc28fire.com or search “Justus Fire Company” on Facebook. The fire company is located at 159 Fieldstone Drive in Justus.

with Travelers Insurance for 25 years as an insurance adjuster. He was a member of the Abington Heights School Authority, where he served as chairman that built the South Abington Elementary School, the former Junior High School and the High School. John Victor and Jean have three children; Peggy Hambrick Rubino, Pleasant Ridge, Mich.; Jeff Vogelbacker, Decatur, Ga. and Susan Warner, Clarks Summit. Bob Vogelbacker, today lives in Fort Meyers, Fla., with his wife of nearly 60 years, Kathryn. The couple graduated from the Clarks Summit-Clarks Green Joint High School in 1943 before both attended Syracuse University. “We’ve known each other all our lives,” said Bob Vogelbacker. They have two children: Judy and David. Bob and Kathryn are Abington Heights graduates and lived on Stone Avenue, Clarks

Summit, until they left Clarks Summit in 1980. They reside in Philadelphia. Despite the fact Bob Vogelbacker never lived in the hotel and wasn’t born while it was in operation, he knew the lineup along Depot Street that surrounded his father’s business. After turning right onto Depot Street from Winola Road, a passersby would happen upon a residence, then Ellis and Young grocery store, then Brown’s Barber, then the Snyder Feed Mill. Next was the Hill Sisters Confectionary Store, where Bob Vogelbacker said ice cream and newspapers were a few of the products sold. Next to the Confectionary Store was the Vogelbacker Hotel, then O’Connor’s Bar bordered by Sillers Bakery and the Grand Union Food Store. Kathryn Vogelbacker, formerly Kathryn McDermott, said all the businesses in the area seemed to be owned by

local companies. “They lived there, they worked there, they invested there. They built the town.” After John Vogelbacker sold the hotel in 1924, he did not retire. “When my father got out of the hotel business, he got into the lumber business,” said Bob Vogelbacker, whose father would cut lumber into different sizes and make props to support mines. He ran a saw mill and also built a large garage where he stored trucks and a horse. From there he would transport the props to Scranton. Bob Vogelbacker said his father was also involved with real estate. “He was a very industrious person.” John Vogelbacker also helped raise money for the construction of Our Lady of the Snows Church, 301 South State St., Clarks Summit. “He was an instrumental when that was built,” according to his son Bob.

JUSTUS - The Justus Fire Company Wine Tasting Fundraiser will be the third wine tasting the company has hosted, according to Joseph F. Wasko Sr., trustee of the fire company. The event, set to be held Sept. 17, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Maiolatesi Wine Cellar, has grown significantly, with attendees doubling in participation, from 150 guests to 300 guests between the first tasting in the fall and the second tasting in the spring. “We just came up with a different type of fundraiser,” said Wasko. “We wanted to use a local business, as we wanted them to benefit as well.” “The Maiolatesi Wine Cellar is new up here because their original building in the Carbondale area burned several years ago, so this event means a lot to them as well,” he added. Wasko stressed the importance of community support for this event, which will benefit the fire company. “First and foremost, we are a volunteer fire company and we have limited funds from the community. We’re trying to get a grant for new equipment right now, but any fundraisers within the community helps purchase new equipment for firefighters and ultimately benefits the community,” he added. “We have a very good reputation here in Scott Township. The community has a positive outlook on us and that’s why our wine event is a good fundraiser,” he said. “People come out, and it’s something that people can attend and enjoy a good time.

a project for which it is grant funded. Risse put the amount in the ball park of $350,000. The idea is to rebuild the middle soccer field which is nicknamed International Field. “We’re going to add lights. We’ll be the first Abington field with lights.� Risse said he sees this as having major impact on practices for youth. They’ll be able to practice longer. And he hopes it will attract adults to play sports at 9 or 10 p.m. at night. The board recently was informed that they have been approved for a long -anticipated grant just under $1 million for highway roads and parking features. The grant will allow for an upgrade that will support the visitation to the parks. “If all goes well,� Risse said, “this will lead to a partnership with the Junior Comets youth football. We’re hoping part of what we accomplish is to enable the Comets to build a permanent home.� As for his presidency, Risse said he was happy to be on the board, especially since he used public recreational facilities while growing up. “I was somebody who tried but never made high school sports teams. I was a sandlot person. I watched them build a park in Dunmore, and I think I appreciated that somebody made it available to the public. So, when I was asked to be part of the board it made sense.� Risse’s education includes graduating from Scranton Prep and then, The University of Scranton with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, along with many professional and technical seminars. He worked in media through college and afterward. His back ground includes working for WVIA-FM and TV. He also did stints at WBRE and WNEP and worked freelance in video production. His overall experience in communications includes writing, photography, editing and lighting design. In 1984, Risse worked for Lackawanna County and stayed there for 20 years. He then worked sales for Johnson Controls, a major engineering firm. For the past year, he has worked for Conxx, a communications technology firm, as a project executive. Risse said he has always been involved in community activities, including art groups, youth sports. But now he limits his focus to the parks. Risse is a 25 year resident of Clarks Green and has been married to his wife, Karen, for 30. They have a daughter, Kate, 22 and son, Danny, 20.

As in years past, the annual event will begin with an opening night gala Sept. 16, beginning at 5:30 p.m., featuring screenings of “Beginners” and “Midnight in Paris.” The staff of the Dietrich Theater has decided on an Oktoberfest theme, with several microbreweries serving beer. Nimble Hill Winery will also present a special beer for the event and Epicurean Delight, Seasons Restaurant, Twigs Restaurant & Cafe and The Fireplace Restaurant will provide food. “Things can get boring if you do it the exact same way every year, so we decided to shake things up,” said Dietrich Theater Executive Director Hildy Morgan.

Another shake-up this year is the cost. In years past, admission to the opening night gala has been $50, but this year the staff has lowered it to $35. “We thought it was fair, but too much,” said Morgan of the original price. “For many people, times have not gotten easier, and we feel this is an event to be shared with our friends.” While there have been a lot of changes to the festival this year, Morgan said mainstay is the quality of films that will be screened. She is pleased with all independent and foreign films that have made it onto this year’s schedule. “We still have the same kind of terrific movies,” said Morgan. “These are the cream of the crop, movies that people can watch and then think about for days, weeks, and months. Even if you don’t like it, you’ll think about it.” Among the films selected this year is “The Cave of the Forgotten,” which will mark the first time a 3-D movie is featured See Show, Page 15

LIBRARY NEWS

South Abington Township author releases first book.

BY MARY ANN MCGRATH

For those families who find it difficult to attend the traditional weekday Story Hours for children at the Abington Community Library, a series of Saturday morning read-aloud programs will fill the gap. The series is being coordinated by elementary education students attending Marywood University, Scranton. They will take charge of book selection, presentation of the stories, and hands-on crafts and other interactive activities geared to children age 3 through 7 years old. The students have chosen three themes: “Fall” (Sept. 24); “Halloween” (Oct. 29); and “Thanksgiving” (Nov. 19). Pre-registration is appreciated, either by phone or in person in the Children’s Room at the library. The programs will be held from 11 to 11:45 a.m. in the Children’s Story Room. Calendars and registration lists are also available for the Tuesday and Thursday daytime Story Hours for the Early Fall session and for the Storytime Teens evening program for age 3 through 6 at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 23, which will feature books on grandparents. “My Teacher is a Dinosaur” may reflect the wishful thinking of 6 to 8 year olds just starting out in their new classrooms this school year, but it is also the title of Loreen Leedy’s new non-fiction book for which she collected prehistoric poems, jokes, riddles and amazing facts beginning with Earth’s fiery formation and ending with the last Ice Age. The book is filled with fun facts for learning, and colorful illustrations of prehistoric mammals and other ancient life forms drawn by the author. It’s not all science, though. Here’s just one of the numerous jokes and riddles from its pages: Q. Which prehistoric creature chewed its food three times? A. The trilobite! The book is in the children’s collection at the library. More New Science Books for Children “Amazing Space Q & A,” by Dr. Mike Goldsmith. A question-and-answer format allows the author to provide hundreds of facts about “Exciting Earth,” “Amazing Astronomy,” and “Super Stars” for the cosmic trip of a lifetime. Illustrated with photos, drawings and diagrams. “What are Newton’s Laws of Motion?” by Denyse O’Leary. This book examines how Sir Isaac Newton came to his conclusions and describes how his three basic laws are applied in modern science and technology. For age 10 and older. “Oceans: Ripley’s Believe it or Not!” by Camilla de la Bedoyere. Open this book for fun, facts, and fish! It’s underwater life, with a Ripley twist, however. Investigate marine mysteries and read awesome facts, accompanied by incredible photographs, and extraordinary stories of the weird and wonderful life in the world’s oceans. Also look for “Space,” another non-fiction selection with a Ripley “twist.” The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit.

“Folk Art of Cheryl Korb” will be on display at the Wyoming County Courthouse art gallery in Tunkhannock Sept. 16 through Nov. 22.

Folk ART

Cheryl Korb exhibits at Wyoming County Courthouse By Joan Mead-Matsui Abington Journal Correspondent

C

heryl Korb’s upcoming show, “Folk Art of Cheryl Korb” at the Wyoming County Courthouse art gallery in Tunkhannock is “the culmination of a year’s work,” according to Korb. Her art will be exhibited at the courthouse beginning with an opening reception to be held Sept. 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. and will run until Nov. 22. Marta Kovacs-Ruiz of the courthouse art gallery said, “It is easy to compare and confuse a Cheryl Korb painting with one of America’s famous painters Grandma Moses. The subjects and styles are identical. No wonder, the two artists have the same backgrounds. Both grew up on a farm, raised children, loved the simple joys of rural life and got their inspiration from their environment.” She added, “Grandma Moses was discovered when she was 78 years old. Lucky for us, Cheryl Korb became a well-known and wellrespected artist at an early age.” Korb, a self-taught artist began painting and weaving to make extra money while at home with her children when they were young and continues to work from home full time. Her exhibit will include 24 pieces

of art. Among the art she will exhibit are two of her favorite pieces. One is “Wickham Sign,” a winter scene painted on board. Korb noted, “The Indian head and advertisement were on a barn here locally, since torn down. The framed with the horse shoes I bought from Mary Gere in S. Montrose.” She added, “The second, “The Fair,” is the Falls Overfield Fair from my childhood. The white schoolhouse was torn down long ago. The frame was a 25 cent rescue, with all that crumbly gold plaster. I soaked it in the pond for a week, per Mary Gere’s instruction, and it cleaned up nicely. The primitive animals are fun and relaxing for me to do.” Korb said, “Craft shows were very popular in the late 80s and early 90s, I couldn’t keep up. I painted a large mural for the Ramada Inn lobby in 1998. Through a gallery owner staying there, I started in her gallery in Narrowsburg, N.Y., just up from Honesdale. They have the majority of my work.” She added, “I switched from acrylics to oils about 8 years ago. Oils opened up a whole new world of color and depth for me. Painting, for me, seems

to be a constant growth, and I feel nowhere near the end of all this, it’s still just the beginning. Usually when I’m walking, an idea, like a little bright star hits me, and I can’t wait to paint it. Pulling from my memories (my heart) really gets me going. It’s difficult to explain. It really helps that I live alone to be creative, and that I have generations of farmers in my blood.” Among the art she will exhibit are two of her favorite pieces. “Wickham Sign,” a winter scene painted on board. Korb noted, “The Indian head and advertisement were on a barn here locally, since torn down. The framed with the horse shoes I bought from Mary Gere in S. Montrose.” She added, “The second, “The Fair,” is the Falls Overfield Fair from my childhood. The white schoolhouse was torn down long ago. The frame was a 25 cent rescue, with all that crumbly gold plaster. I soaked it in the pond for a week , per Mary Gere’s instruction, and it cleaned up nicely. The primitive animals are fun and relaxing for me to do.” The gallery is located at the Wyoming County Courthouse at 1 Courthouse Square, Tunkhannock. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 570.836.3200. The public is invited and refreshments will be served.

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. - After retiring from the U.S. Secret Service in January of 2011, Scott A. Racek felt he had enough stories about his job to fill 10 books, and this year he finished the first. The South Abington Township resident released his first novel, “A Time to Die,” in June. Although he has had no formal training as a writer, Racek had something even more important for an author, a wealth of material that he knew would interest people. “A lot of friends, in other professions, they always wanted to hear my stories,” said Racek. “So, I took elements of things that I’ve seen or observed, participated in or heard of, and put those in as core parts in a story.” Racek said he used his experience as inspiration for the work of fiction. The book follows Robert “Race” Krocak, a former U.S. Navy SEAL and a member of the U.S. Secret Servicewho has been assigned to the Los Angeles Field Office. “Race” has been on loan to a Federal FBI task force against terrorism along with representatives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff ’s Office, the Los Angeles Police Department, U.S. Customs, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the CIA. The character has been called out on a weekend to assist the CIA in surveillance of the meet between planners of an assassination attempt of

a foreign leader on U.S. soil. This takes him on a new tour while also returning him to an unfinished adventure. This book contains the daily, sometimes hourly, adventures of a thirtysomething special agent for the United States Secret Service in Los Angeles, Ca., to give the reader a real sense of what it is like to work for the secret service. “I cut some storylines short, and the reason I did that was because that’s the way the real experience is with these events,” said Racek. “When I was with them I called it the shotgun approach, where you had pellets coming at you from all directions, and you’d grab one and that’s the one you’d go with, and the other ones would go by and they’re gone.” Racek began the book, which was published by Xlibris, about three years ago. He said he worked a little bit with an editor, who a friend put him in contact with, but never sought any help when it came to the actual writing. “I wrote it in my own way, and in a way that felt good to me, and it just flowed out when I wrote it. And, the goal was to get through that one case, which is basically just a few days in his life,” said Racek. Racek said he found the process so enjoyable he has already started work on his next book, which will also follow the Race character on another case. He added that he could see doing a series of books with the character. “A Time to Die” is available in hardcover, paperback and ebook at www.amazon.com, www.xlibris.com and www.barnesandnoble.com. Scott A. Racek, shown at left, released the book “A Time to Die,” in June of this year. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com, www.xlibris.com and www.barnesandnoble.com.

Artists from the Rwandan art cooperative, Ivuka Arts, will serve as artists-in-residence at The University of Scranton and will show a selection of their cooperative’s contemporary African paintings at Everything Natural with a Live Art event Sept. 16. The two artists, Emmanuel Nkuranga and Innocent Nkurunziza are leaders in an effort to build a contemporary arts and culture scene in Rwanda. Nkurunziza also will have a show in New York City in September. Their only previous North American show was held by special invitation of President Bill and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. Ivuka Arts is the major arts collective in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. The two artists will show 15 to 20 paintings that provide a sample of the work of their member artists. The full art show will open at Everything Natural, 426 S. State Street Sept. 16, and the artists will be there in person and conduct a live painting demonstration. The event will launch Everything Natural’s Home, Hearth and World Open House, Sept. 17, which will also introduce locally baked treats from Peaceful Valley Bakery in Justus and feature live music by At Home, a Dallas- based duo, along with food sampling, reflexology, chair massage and informational exhibits. The “Live Art” events are performances that the artists host in Rwanda to generate excitement about the arts. Further, Ivuka Arts is deeply committed to using the arts in various ways to heal postgenocide Rwanda and to rebuild the country economically. The Arts collective runs

northeast Pennsylvania at the invitation of Sharon Meagher, a professor of Philosophy and the Chair of the Department of Latin American Studies and Women’s Studies at The University of Scranton. Meagher met the artists last summer when she was doing some consulting work for the Centre for Gender, Culture and Development at the Kigali Institute of Education. She returned with a colleague and some University of Scranton students in January. “Our students were so inspired by these artists, and I am too,” said Meagher. “Their visit here is a great opportunity for both the University and local communities to learn more about Rwanda’s present situation and hopes for the future.” A sample of the artists work and more details about their biographies can be found on the Ivuka Arts website: http:// www.ivukaarts.com.

Keystone taps Smith for basketball post

Dr. Matthew Grimaldi, director of athletics at Keystone College, La Plume has announced the appointment of Nevada Smith as the college’s new head men’s basketball coach. The position became available after former head coach Jason Leone stepped down last month. “We are very excited to welcome Nevada to the department and the program,” stated Dr. Grimaldi. “As a former Division III athlete himself, Nevada grasps the student-athlete philosophy that we strive to convey here at the College,” added Dr. Grimaldi. Smith joins the Giants after spending the past five years as an assistant coach at Ithaca College. During his time at Ithaca, the Bombers saw their best five year stretch in program history, compiling a mark of 96-40, a period that saw the team claim three Empire eight regular season championships in 2008, 2009 and 2011 and two NCAA Tournament berths in 2009 and 2011. That timeframe also included an ECAC title in 2010 and five appearances in the Empire 8 Championship Tournament. Smith was involved in all aspects of the Ithaca program, including developing scouting reports on all opponents, the implementation of all offensive game plans and the development of the Bombers’ perimeter players. That hands on approach aided in the development of six First Team All-Empire 8 performers, three Empire 8 Players of the Year and three NABC All-Americans. The Bombers also set the program and Empire 8 record for points per game with an 88.5ppg average during his tenure. Coach Smith was also responsible for recruiting the 2009-10 Empire 8 Rookie of the Year in Sean Rossi. Rossi has led the nation in assists in each of the last two seasons. “We are going to play a fun style of basketball that showcases our player’s strengths,” explained Smith. “I have been fortunate to work with some excellent basketball coaches that have prepared me for this opportunity. I am excited to be joining the Keystone family. I hope to build on the success that Coach Leone has established over the past four years.” Smith also spent three seasons as an assistant coach with Ithaca’s softball team; the Bombers advanced to the NCAA playoffs twice and finished fourth at the NCAA World Series in 2008. Prior to joining Ithaca he was at Allegheny College where he was an asSee Keystone , Page 2

Lackawanna Trail roars past Lake-Lehman

as the Lions handed Lehman a 48-28 non-conference loss Saturday night. “Early in the season you know LEHMAN TWP. – Right down the field Lake-Lehman went with how important turnovers and special teams are,” said Trail the second-half kickoff. The third-year coach Steve Jervis, Black Knights gained sizeable who previously coached six years chunks of yardage to cover 80 at Tunkhannock. “We had some yards and score a touchdown. problems last week. We worked But more importantly, they gained a chunk of momentum in on special teams all week.” Rosiak’s touchdown, straight up a football game tilted decisively the gut of Lehman’s coverage toward Lackawanna Trail Jr. Sr. unit, gave Trail (2-0) a 34-14 High School. Then it was gone in an instant. lead. An interception by Jeremy Trail’s Marvess Rosiak returned Greenley on Lehman’s first play the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for after Rosiak’s return was converted into another score and a a score, sapping the momentum BY JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com Sports Reporter

41-14 advantage entering the fourth quarter. Lehman failed to make any inroads on the deficit, falling to 0-2. The Black Knights made the District 2 Class 2A playoffs last season and are now teetering on being knocked out of the district picture early. “Our first three games, you look at the situation and want to be 3-0,” Lehman coach Jerry Gilsky said. “We’re 0-2 now. We knew the first three games of the season were the keys. We had the top-two single-A schools we were going against and then Wyoming Area. … We’re not in

the driver’s seat.” Rosiak drove the Black Knights off course. Besides the kickoff return, he threw a 47yard option pass for a touchdown, scooped up a fumble and returned it 6 yards for a TD and ran 45 yards for Trail’s final score. “We’ve got to get it done defensively,” Gilsky said. “That’s what we’re focusing on this week – defense.” Gilsky was somewhat satisfied with the offense. The Black Knights had nearly 300 yards, See Roars, Page 4

Abington Heights High School graduate Cory Spangenberg batted .471 in the postseason, helping the Fort Wayne Tin Caps sweep the best-of-three Midwest League quarterfinal series. The team advanced to the semifinals where they were swept. Spangenberg, a lead-off hitting second baseman, did his best to try to extend Fort Wayne’s season. The first-round draft pick by the parent San Diego Padres in June’s Major League Baseball Draft singled in the tying run in the top of the ninth inning of Monday’s 8-7, season-ending loss to the Lansing Lugnuts. Spangenberg went 3-for-4 in the game with a walk to finish 8-for-17 in four playoff games. In the quarterfinals, Spangenberg had five hits in two games against the Bowling Green Hot Rods. He led off Friday’s clinching win with a double and the game’s first run scored. Spangenberg also was involved in helping Fort Wayne clinch the playoff spot on the last day of the regular season.

Scranton area shooters compete Baseball showcase rescheduled for national handgun title

The top shooters in the dynamic “run-and-gun” sport of practical shooting will converge on Las Vegas to compete in the 2011 STI USPSA National Handgun Championships. Among the more than 650 shooters from across America, and around the world, competing for the coveted title of National Champion will be local top guns Michael Frezzolini of Eynon, Stacey Borgia of Factoryville, Donald Seigle of Scranton and Barry Ruane of South Gibson. In all, 45 states and six foreign nations will be

represented at the competition which is organized by the U.S. Practical Shooting Association, the 20,000 strong member organization that is the national governing body for the sport of practical shooting. The 2011 STI USPSA National Handgun Championships take place September 16-24 at the Desert Sportsman’s Rifle & Pistol Club in Las Vegas, Nev. During competition shooters will face 20 stages – or courses of fire – that are designed to test the competitors’

speed and accuracy using multiple targets, including moving targets that swing, bob and appear briefly before quickly disappearing. Competitors will put more than 250,000 rounds of ammunition downrange during the event. The STI USPSA National Handgun Championships consist of two major events. The first is the Open, Limited-10 and Revolver division competition September 17-20, followed by the Limited and Production division contest September 22-24. Divisions are based on

the different types of firearm used in each. The Production Division features commonly available stock or “duty guns” with only limited changes permitted to the firearm, while the Open division utilizes fully customized pistols featuring recoil reducing compensators and optical sighting systems.

The Chiefs led 25-0 with 2:18 left in the second quarter. “Me and (Kyle) Kiehart have been practicing a lot throwing the ball and working on timing,” Filarsky said. “It really pays off. Throughout the summer we would stay after practice and throw routes. We would work on it constantly until we got it right.” Kiehart completed 13 of 16 passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. Walsh found wide receiver Ron Tomasetti on a fouryard touchdown pass to cap a six-play 71-yard drive. Running back Antonio Russo, who gained 122 yards on 13 carries, broke off a 47yard run to set up the score. Russo also converted the two-point conversion, mak-

Lakeland head coach Jeff Wasilchak was happy with the way his team played after a Week One loss to Scranton Prep. “We just executed better,” Wasilchak said. “We made a lot of plays in the first half. There is always room for improvement, but I was pleased with our performance tonight. I was proud of the way the kids bounced back. It was a real good win for us.” Lakeland (1-1) will host G.A.R. next week. Mid Valley (0-2) will host Hanover Area.

BBC looks to lend a hand

Regular classes at Baptist Bible College have been cancelled for Sept. 15, enabling students, faculty and staff to help with flood relief and cleanup in Wyoming County. The decision to move the annual Community Appreciation Day, a time of local service projects and no classes, from its original date of Oct. 18 was not a difficult one. “A neighbor shows compassion in times of need,” said Vice President and Provost Dr. Jim Lytle. “We adjusted our schedule a little bit, a change that pales in comparison to what some in our surrounding community are living with. We hope to be some help in an area so terribly affected.” Area devastation from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee remains widespread. Nearly 5,400 businesses and homes sustained flood-related damage in Wyoming, Luzerne, and Susquehanna counties alone, officials said. The locations are immediately north and west of the Baptist Bible College and Seminary home in Lackawanna County. President Barack Obama issued a disaster declaration, opening the way for wider federal assistance to the region. Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff will be involved in many different cleanup and relief efforts, serving mostly in groups of up to 40. Baptist Bible College is working with the Wyoming County Emergency Management Agency in tackling several cleanup efforts. Volunteers will drive to a central location in the Tunkhannock area from campus, with some traveling on buses rented by the college. From there, groups will assist with a range of projects as needed, including helping people move furniture, distributing donated goods, and cleaning mud and debris. Some photos from the day will be posted later at www.facebook.com/BaptistBible.

But when the defense forced Trail out of its offensive comfort zone, it failed. Quarterback Caleb Darling missed on just one of his six passes and his two long connections of 36 and 24 yards to tight end Matt Aten proved costly. “We put them in situation we know they’re not capable of,” Gilsky said. “We wanted them to throw the ball … and we didn’t capitalize.”

The Keystone College athletic department in La Plume has announced that Samantha Littleford and Hope Krolewski have been named as the athletes of the week, for the period ending Sept. 11. Littleford is a member of the women’s soccer team, while Krolewski is a member of the field hockey team. Littleford, a sophomore from Nanticoke, and graduate of Nanticoke High School, helped the Giants to a 0-1-1 mark last week, as the team recorded a 3-3 tie at Maritime College and a 3-2 loss at Rosemont College. In the double overtime affair at Maritime, Littleford scored one goal, while assisting on two others. Heading into play on Tuesday Keystone stood at 1-1-1 overall, with all three matches having gone into overtime. Krolewski, a junior from Bear Creek, and graduate of Holy Redeemer High School, helped her squad to a 1-0 mark last week. In a 5-2 cone from behind win against Morrisville State, Krolewski assisted on the game’s tying goal, a score by Kelsey Drozda, then scored the eventual game winning goal herself. She helped pad the Keystone lead with an insurance goal just 57 seconds later. Krolewski was also named as the CSAC Field Hockey Player of the Week for her performance.
