Outreach continues from school, community BY ANDY DAVIS Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT- The robotics team at Abington Heights High School put their community above themselves for their latest fundraiser. During “Back to School Night” at the high school, the robotics team collected $296 to donate to the Red Cross to help flood victims in the area. Every year, the robotics team organizes fundraisers to try and raise enough money to travel to competitions. This year the team decided that raising money for flood victims was more important than planning a fundraiser for themselves. Robotics team adviser Dan Vannan talked about how the fundraiser was started. “Several students from the Robotics team approached me and expressed a desire to raise money and or goods for flood victims. A parent of one student offered to help. We decided to take monetary donations for the Red Cross at Back to School Night,” Vannan said. Vannan thought that putting the needs of flood victims first was a great idea. “Obviously any money raised throughout the year would help offset our costs, but in light of the devastation along the Susquehanna River, the Red Cross is obviously in much greater need of monetary assistance,” Vannan said.

Two area companies are among a number of businesses hoping to make flood recovery more manageable. “With the devastation of the flood, we’ve definitely been getting calls from up in the Abingtons and Wilkes-Barre,” said Larry Hartpence, co-owner of the company All Shred. All-Shred, located in Moscow, is a paper and hard drive shredding service. In operation for 10 years, this company will destroy paper, hard drives, metal materials, plastics, uniforms and prescription bottles…even if they’re wet. This could be a resource for people affected by the flood who are looking to discard wet documents

A.H. Middle School offers six weeks of after school fun

BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Starting this week, staying after school will be anything but a punishment for the students of Abington Heights Middle School. The school began the first session of its “After School Activities” Oct. 4. The program, which will run for six weeks, ending Nov. 10, gives students the option of participating in a variety of different activities. “I’ve looked around, and have yet to find a middle school in the Common-

wealth of Pennsylvania that has such a comprehensive after-school program,” said Assistant Principal Eduardo Antonetti. “We offer everything, literally, from A to Z, from American Sign Language to Zumba. And, in between we have chess, checkers, creative writing, geocaching…weight lifting.” The program tries to offer something for everyone, featuring more than 40 diverse activities that deal with academics, sports and the arts. And, if 400 students participating in the program

last year is any indication, they’ve achieved their goal. Antonetti credits the popularity of the program with the school’s faculty and staff constantly looking for feedback from the student body. “It’s an evolving program, so as the students’ interest change we try to create new activities,” said Antonetti. An example of that is the Lego Club, which is new to the program this year, and started after a See Beyond, Page 6

Editor: As a certified teacher who loves books and teaches Latin in parochial settings, I have been watching the letters on education written by those running in the Abington Heights School Board race and readers’ responses in various editorial pages throughout the county. I am wondering for whom to vote. My understanding is that there are two positions open and three candidates – incumbent Frank Santoriello, who serves on many community boards; his running mate, Michael Fleming, a businessman at Sanofi Pasteur and Tom Brogan, a former Abington Heights teacher and union leader. This year voters will have a choice in November, since the election was not settled in the May primary. In reviewing the editorial articles I have kept from various papers, the overarching question that lurks in the background is, “What can we do to better the district for our children”? After the political verbiage and opinionated adjectives are cleared away, the letters to the editor by two of the candidates clearly take different economic approaches toward this goal. Here is my take away message from what I have read. Mr. Santoriello indicates that he and Mr. Fleming “… want to maintain or improve the district’s high quality of education at a fair value to the taxpayers” (8/25/11 editorial). He also indicated that the two men, though running together, are not in total agreement on the particular course of action though they want a fair value for taxpayers. Mr. Brogan wrote about specifics. “ I will fight to restore transitional first grade, reinstate librarians in our libraries, restore computer education in our elementary schools, and restore our foreign language program. I will fight to ensure that Abington Heights remains the standard for

education in our region while keeping property taxes in check” (9/8/11 editorial) Mr. Fleming spoke for himself in an area newspaper interview dated May 5, 2011. He said he would work “…to ensure that the school district keeps soaring costs in check while maintaining a high quality of education.” He does not see this possible unless the school board preserves independence and believes “ ….it will require creative thinking and sacrifice from various groups.” As voters, we will have a choice to look at the overarching question by one of two means. Maintaining the school district’s high quality of education --at a fair value or restoring specific programs. Just as Americans have a distinct presidential choice in the Fall of 2012…so the Abington community has a choice in the Fall of 2011 with economic considerations. However, I see another tension that is unanswered by the positions expressed so far. Is there a means of providing fair value and keeping property taxes in check while valuing academics over athletic programs and immediate career preparation as well as college admissions? In general, educational quality is manifest in various ways in a democracy where there are checks and balances. Who will we entrust these decisions to at a board level? Community members? Businessmen? Retired union educators? Who will make fair decisions for the future rather than living in the past when the status quo cannot be economically maintained? Perhaps there are solutions that none have discussed so far. This fall there does seem to be a choice … seek more information then choose to vote. Barry Phillips, Clarks Green

Editor:One of Tom Brogan’s opponents for Abington Heights School Board seems to view the possible election of a retired teacher to the Board and as a threat to the future of the district’s finances and our children’s education. An educator on the school board? How preposterous. What insight and wisdom could a veteran teacher such as Tom Brogan possibly bring to the table?

District residents and taxpayers should leave the important decisions about education and spending in the hands of a board with no educators. I have to wonder, then, would Brogan’s opponent feel confident about the future of his health if it were in the hands of a medical board with no doctors? Daniel Gleason, Clarks Summit

Editor: A few months ago I sent an email to you voicing my concerns about the lack of recognition of the U.S. Coast Guard on the monument that had been erected in the park on State Street in Clarks Summit. I must tell you how very proud I was to be heading through town last week to see the addition of our small, but very proud service to the

beautiful monument. I wish I knew who to thank for the addition, thank them for their time, as well as thanking them for the cost of the addition. I am sure many people deserve the credit and I would like to offer my thank you. Francis Dietrich Former Machinery Technician Second Class, United States Coast Guard Nicholson

One farm reaches out to another BY JOHN KRISPIN jkrispin@timesleader.com

HARVEYS LAKE - An area farm will host a fundraiser this month to benefit the families affected by the barn fire that killed nearly two dozen horses this past summer. Carrie Sisson, owner of the Royal Rock Equestrian Center in Harveys Lake, is organizing an open house Oct. 15, to boost morale and raise donations for the Race family, owners of Over the Hill Farm on Carbondale Road, South Abington Township, whose livelihood nearly vanished in the July fire. “We were going to have an open house, but before this accident I couldn’t think of a theme,” said Sisson. “This not only is going to support the horses, but this is to get children into riding. We are going to have food, refreshments, and, hopefully, a haunted horse ride. We are also trying to come up with arts and crafts activities and riding demonstrations.” According to an Abington Journal story, on the night of the blaze, 13 fire companies and more than 100 firefighters responded to find the 50-by-300 foot structure fully engulfed. The Race family will keep going, said Sisson.“They have to care for the horses that did survive, and they require daily care. They put their time and effort into that.” And although barns can be rebuilt and new horses can be trained, Sisson believes the summer fire will have a lasting emotional effect felt by losing a family member. “The emotional attachment people have for their horses will never be replaced.” According to the “Friends of Over the Hill Farm” Facebook page, a fund has also been set up. Residents can send donations to Over the Hill Farm Fire Fund, First National Bank, 125 N. State St., Clarks Summit, PA 18411. Donations are also accepted at any First National Bank branch office. Want to help? Open house and benefit event is scheduled for Oct. 15. The Royal Rock Equestrian Center is located at 202 Chestnut Tree Road, Harveys Lake. Info: www.royalrock.net.

Standing next to a tree that will soon be carved by Kevin Treat at the Abington Area Community Park, 1188 Winola Rd in S. Abington Twp., are from left: Kevin Treat, Kip Conforti, Leela Baikadi and Mike Gockley.

Tree transformation at park in the works Visitors to the Abington Area Community Park should beware. During their next trip to the park, they may see the following wildlife: an eagle, owls and black bears. Local wood carver, Kevin Treat of Lake Winola will transform a dying pine tree at the park into his tree carving project “intended to reflect tranquility that can be experienced in the park and will include wildlife such as an eagle, owls and black bears,” according to Treat, who estimated the project should take

approximately three consecutive full days to complete. The funds for the tree carving project were provided by a Lackawanna County Arts grant awarded to Clarks Green Borough and Waverly Township on behalf of the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board; the Abington Area Community Classroom; Leela Bakaidi and friends; Clarks Summit UPS Store owner, Kip Conforti and Mike Sheruda, Down to Earth Rental Equipment.

His positive outlook on life, he said, helps him to think in the same manner about his business and where it could go. He said he believes it could even grow to be as big as TOMS Shoes. “I think it’s a matter of getting a little bit of movement,” he said, “people that are excited and fired up about it. I see it as a community thing as opposed to me just doing it,” he said. Oliver Strickland, a junior at The University of Scranton, is also helping as an intern on the project by writing a newsletter which is sent out regularly to subscribers via e-mail. Strickland said each issue is different, but some topics will include inspiration, motivation, goal setting and staying focused. “If you read it,” he said, “you’re going to feel great.” Strickland said he has known Wrobel for a while, and when he got the phone call about helping with the project, he was in it 100 percent. “I really think it’s going to make a difference,” he said. Although the business just started coming together about 10 weeks ago, Wrobel already made his first giveaway drop-off

of 22 shirts at the Scranton Rescue Mission, a Christian ministry to the homeless. Jill Hilkert, Administrative Assistant at the Mission, said, “T-shirts are one of the main clothing items that the homeless wear and to get brand new Tshirts with positive messages on them is a blessing.” Wrobel said People Helping People will also donate shirts to organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House and the Boys and Girls Club. Another option when purchasing a shirt is to provide the name and address of a specific person to send the second shirt, along with a handwritten note of encouragement. He said he is working on a plan to offer printing of uniform shirts to businesses and clubs. The T-shirts would have the organization logo or artwork, and for each one purchased, one inspirational shirt would be given away to someone in need. Wrobel said of the project, “I think it shows adults as well as kids that it’s important to help out your fellow man.” For details, visit www.peoplehelpingpeople.com.

A dream come true

Pink pumpkins for breast cancer

BY KELLY MCDONOUGH Abington Journal Correspondent

BY SUSAN REBENSKY Abington Journal Correspondent

DALTON - With October comes the changing of the leaves into beautiful reds, greens, yellows and other hues. But what also happens in October is that the color pink makes appearance in many ways. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the family and crew at Roba Family Farms in Dalton turned the farms pink for breast cancer awareness Oct. 1, right down to one of their pigs who participates during their annual pig race event. Patti Borger, the Director of Fun at Roba’s explained what Pink for Pumpkins was all about, “We here at the farm have teamed up with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure foundation and have turned the farm into a day of fun pink events and happening to help increase the awareness of Breast Cancer and its early signs. We have a pink ribbon pumpkin day scavenger hunt, pink pumpkins to paint, a pig in our pig races that will be wearing a special pink ribbon, and so much more. Breast Cancer is close to the heart of all of us here at the farm,” she said. Borger explained that farm owner Sue Roba’s mom is a breast cancer survivor. Many of the employees at the farm have been touched by breast cancer and wanted to do something to help the cause.” “There are many families here today, both employees and families that are visiting that have been touched by breast cancer and it is nice to see people coming out to support such a great cause. This event is in its second year and we are hoping to raise a lot of

funds that will go to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. We will be taking a portion of the general admission paid here today and donating that, we will also be donating the pumpkins here today to be painted pink and the money people pay to paint the pumpkins goes to the cause as well. Look around here today, look at all the pink, it is wonderful to see and even our employees are dressed in their best pink. Breast cancer is serious and if we can help in our own way to find a cure, then here we are,” said Borger. Dolly Woody, Executive Director of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, was also on hand, and said she was touched by everyone who showed up wearing pink to support the day’s events. “Today is a special day for families and friends to gather here at the farm and escape what they may be going through as far as breast cancer. And it is a great day for the people who come here today to support the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer. It is hard to find a place where families can go and just forget about what is going on in their lives. The farm is giving them that chance today. We hope that people take the time to make an appointment for a mammogram and get it done; early detection is the best prevention. Do the monthly checkups at home, if something isn’t right, make

appointment. If you don’t have insurance, call us, we will help you get a mammogram done,” said Woody. She added, “When people donate to this cause, the money does go right back into their community. Seventyfive percent goes back into education, awareness, testing such as mammograms for those who can not afford it and so on and the other 25 percent goes right to national research. Your money goes right to the cause. What a great feeling, to help someone and to know you might just have a part in finding the cure.” Tina Orner, a breast cancer survivor at the event to help, said, “I would not think of being anywhere else today, the Susan G. Komen foundation has been there for me and has helped me to be a survivor. And I am a ten- year survivor this year. It is wonderful that the Roba family has opened up their farm today in support of this event, it is truly a wonderful day to be in pink. “The Roba Family farm will be donating money to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Anyone who did not attend the day’s events can send a donation to: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Northeastern Pennsylvania Affiliate, 200 Mulberry Street, Suite 305 Scranton, PA 18503-1225.Fore more information, call 1.877.GO.KOMEN (465.6636).

MAYFIELD- Grace Kubus, a nine-year-old resident of Mayfield, has achieved so much in a short time. On Aug. 5, Grace, daughter of George and Patricia Kubus, was crowned National American Miss Pennsylvania Junior-Preteen Cover Girl at the state pageant held at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg. She competed against 134 girls and received a special invitation to compete at the national pageant. The National American Miss Pageants are for “Today’s Girl” and “Tomorrow’s Leaders.” The pageant program is based on inner beauty, as well as poise, presentation and offers an “All American Spirit” of fun for family and friends. The pageant seeks to recognize the accomplishments of each girl while encouraging her to set goals for the future. The Kubus family received information in the mail about National American Miss and decided than wanted to do further research. Grace was requested to attend a meeting in Scranton where she was interviewed by judges and directors. Her parents were notified of their daughter’s acceptance and prepared for the pageant. According to Grace’s mother and children’s book author, Patricia Kubus, the main benefit her daughter received was selfconfidence and experience in presenting herself on stage and in front of people. “She was expected to act as you would be interviewed for a job. She was taught how to dress appropriately, talk respectfully and answer completely,” said Patricia Kubus. As a state Cover Girl for National American Miss, Grace promised to be a positive role model for all girls. She has been sworn to conduct herself in a moral and ethical manner. She is trying to the best of her ability to promote National American Miss program throughout her hometown and state by making appearances in parades and while doing community service. As a family, Patricia Kubus said that they find this a wonderful opportunity for their daughter to make friends, learn what it means to be active in her community, take on special responsibility for her title and have fun.

Grace Kubus, daughter of George and Patricia Kubus, was crowned National American Miss Pennsylvania Junior-Preteen Cover Girl at the state pageant held at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg Aug. 5.

“There are not many nineyear-olds who could have this kind of experience and learn this self-esteem. We are very proud of our daughter and we are excited to support her for the year of her reign,” she said. As far as Grace is concerned, her role as National American Miss Pennsylvania Junior Preteen is important because she likes to try new experiences and meet new friends. “The title has given me more excitement and spirit to show everyone at the end of this year, what I accomplished. I hope to meet new people, learn about my community and take part in important events,” said the reigning Cover Girl. Special projects include a bake sale in the memory of Grace’s sister, Amanda, who was born and died from complications with a birth defect known as congenital diaphragmatic hernia or CDH. “My next step is toward Crohn’s disease awareness. This disease has affected my cousin, and I want to be involved in raising funds at her annual horseshow at Birchtown Stables, Inc.,” Grace said. She also intends to meet with local clubs such as Lions or Rotary clubs in the area as well as her school and St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton. Her ultimate goal: “To challenge myself .... My scrapbook is filled with photos and signatures of friends that I will have forever.” The national pageant will be held in Anaheim, Calif., Nov. 19 -25.

group of fifth-graders approached Antonetti. The students found a teacher to act as the club’s advisor, and put together a petition, receiving 20 signatures from their classmates, to show there was interest. “The kids are great, they have a lot of initiative, they talk to teachers and they approach me and the principal, Mr. (Mike) Elia. And if we can make it work we go ahead and do it,” said Antonetti. Other clubs originate based on the teachers’ talents and abilities. Teacher Rob Smith is a professional juggler, so he started the juggling club, teacher John MIkiewicz is a golfer, who competes professionally, and was put in charge of the golf club. In addition to getting a chance to share their knowledge, Antonetti feels having the teachers participate in the program helps overall school moral. “To see a teacher dancing Zumba, it really breaks the ice and makes everyone seem more human, which is a great thing,” said Antonetti. “And, the fact that they see teachers and students that they don’t normally see, makes our big school seem smaller. So they get to meet kids from other grades, they get to meet (teachers) who they might not know, and it really connects in the school community.” Abington Heights Middle school offers three sessions of the after school program during the year: in the fall, winter and spring, each running for six weeks. Some of the clubs are constant, and some change due to the season or popularity. Children can fit in as many as three different activities during the week, and are encouraged to do so, as the staff at the school sees the program as a productive way for the students to spend their afternoon. “One of the reasons for having the after school program is all of the research shows that that’s the time many kids may not be supervised at home, or may not have structured activities. That’s the time they’re not going to use productively, and some kids will get into trouble because they don’t have something productive to do,” said Antonetti. “This gives them time to socialize with other kids, and do something fun, creative and educational. It’s a very dynamic program.” The program is priced at $35 per student. Participants can sign up for one to three programs for that price. For more information, call 570.586.1281.

FACTORYVILLE - Lackawanna Trail Junior-Senior High School assistant principal Dr. Tania Stoker recently earned her doctorate degree, a Ph.D. in Human Development (Instructional Leadership), which she received from Marywood University in August. “Our entire school faculty, administrative team, and the school board are very impressed by Tania’s great achievement,” said Lackawanna Trail high school principal John Rushefski. “Tania worked diligently on her dissertation study each evening and on weekends during the past few years,” said Rushefski. “It feels great to be done, ” said Stoker. I would be remiss however if I didn’t thank the Lackawanna Trail School District for allowing me to conduct my research here as well as to all of the Trail graduates who responded to my study for providing me with access to their high school and college scores and for their thoughtful feedback.” Stoker received her undergraduate degree at the Lehigh University. There, she served as a teacher’s assistant for the Chairperson of the Mathematics Department. She also was a tutor at Sylvan Learning Center in Easton, while earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. “Those experi-

ences led to my desire to become an educator,” said Stoker, “and the decision to return to Dr. Tania Stoker school and complete the coursework that I needed to become a certified math teacher.” She graduated from Lehigh University in May 1997, but didn’t stop there. She earned her Secondary Mathematics Certification from Marywood University in May 1999. Then, she attended The University of Scranton, where she finished her Master of Science in Secondary Education (Curriculum and Instruction) degree. More educational courses at Marywood University led her to earn certification as a Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction in May 2005 and as a Principal in December 2007. At a board meeting held April 2008, Stoker was hired by the Lackawanna Trail School District and July 1 of that year she began work as the assistant principal. To earn her doctorate degree, she accomplished Marywood’s interdisciplinary program, in which she completed a variety of education-related courses which examined quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as bases of social, economical and psychological

human development. She delved further into her research by investigating the college success of Lackawanna Trail graduates from 2006 through 2009 and examining their high school scores and accounts of experience. She used her data to write her dissertation. Stoker said she loves working at Lackawanna Trail JuniorSenior High School. Although she didn’t attend high school there, she still feels at home. She attended Dunmore High School, which she believes is another local school with a great faculty and staff. “I hope that Trail students make the most of their high school years so when they graduate and look back at their academic and personal experiences, they feel the same of their Alma Mater,” she said. Rushefski and Stoker are working together to make Lackawanna Trail an even better place for students. “I believe the results of my research will allow us to make data-driven decisions at Lackawanna Trail High School to improve programming so that current and future students will be more successful as they matriculate in college,” said Stoker. Rushefski added, “Tania and I are currently using the knowledge gained from her project to provide the best possible educational experience for the Trail students.”

Glenburn awaits EPA fall update BY TARA KOVAL Abington Journal Correspondent

Trinity Lutheran Church breaks ground BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE

rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

Members of Trinity Lutheran Church, 205 W. Grove St. in Clarks Summit, along with contractors, architects and pastor George Mathews held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new parish center Sept. 30. “The congregation outgrew the other facility,” Mathews said. “We needed more office and classroom space.” According to Mathews, the new center will feature more classrooms, expanded office space, a conference room, a library, and a fellowship hall that will seat 120 people. The first and second floor will also be connected by two sets of stairs and an elevator. Mathews said the project is being funded through church assets and the Diocesan Annual Appeal, which is ongoing. “We finished phase one, which was our major donors,” he said. “Now we will be asking others for more modest gifts.”

GLENBURN TWP.- Glenburn Township Solicitor Malcolm MacGregor explained at the Township Board of Supervisors July meeting that supervisors were pleased with information received at an assembly with representatives of the Environmental Protection AgencyJune 28 at the Township building. The purpose of the meeting, which the supervisor’s requested, was “to get an update on both legal and environmental matters at the [Precision National Plating Plant] site,” according to MacGregor. The meeting was closed to the public; however, MacGregor said the EPA indicated the Response Action Plan including public input from the November 2010 meeting may be finalized this fall. He also stated the EPA may be ready to move forward by the end of the year. Supervisor David Jennings expressed concern with the EPA delay in completing the Response Action Plan, which EPA representatives said was a result of errors in the transcript. Jennings remarked in July that at that point the township was eight months beyond the meeting for public input in November 2010, and it was not until June that EPA representatives disclosed transcript mistakes. Township Supervisors asked the EPA again for details regarding contamination, cleanup and data to be shared in a clear and timely manner. Supervisor Michael Savitsky added that the EPA was “receptive to making the information easier to understand.”

Hartpence said wet personal documents, like the ones ruined in the flood are an easy target for people performing identity theft. “What’s good about us is that we can destroy the wet documents that people might just throw out. When they dry out people can go collect all of that personal information that was just thrown out,” Hartpence said. "Only our employees touch the documents and all of our employees are insured, bonded and uniformed,” Hartpence said. With 18 company trucks, All-Shred’s services cover a wide range of states. The unique part of AllShreds services, according to Hartpence, is that the documents or items people want to destroy can still be wet. “The main thing I want to tell people is not to throw out their wet items. I can’t tell you enough how many people can be affected by identity theft if they do. We take the wet items and destroy them in our grinders or confetti makers and no personal information can be recovered by anyone,” Hartpence said. For questions, All-Shred can be contacted at 570.842.6464 SCE Environmental volunteered to help with the cleanup in West Pittston after the flood, and they are currently still there, and other in areas that experienced damage, offering their professional services to homes and businesses.

PHOTO COURTESY ALEX SEELEY “Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big horror film fan,” said Keystone College student Alex Seeley, who will be presenting a series of photos, one shown above, that will tell a horror story.

Keystone artists bring haunting creations to life By JOSEPH CROFT Abington Journal Correspondent

lass-blown pumpkins, frightful masks, and a horror story told through photos are among the pieces that will be shown at the upcoming “Nightmare on Vine Street” exhibit at New Visions Studio and Gallery in Scranton. New Visions curator Melanie Boisseau explained that the original October exhibit fell through and that she needed a replacement idea. It was then that she thought of Nick Shotwell. “The incentive started with Nick,” she said. “He had been working on masks over the last year, and I thought they would be a great fit.”

Shotwell, a 2011 Keystone graduate, was given a grant for an undergraduate research project so that he could build mixed-media leather masks. The gallery has allowed him to expand on his project. “My senior seminar was in mask masking, but I was limited to what the

lenders (of the grant) wanted,” Shotwell explained. “I’ve always been into the psychology of horror. The ideas for the masks are based on biblical figures, Greek mythology, urban legends, and my own dreams and ideas.” Shotwell introduced Boisseau to Erica Simon, a fellow 2011 Keystone graduate. While at Keystone, Simon concentrated her art in glass blowing and painting. These areas will be represented by glassblown pumpkins and blacklight paintings of See See Nightmare, Page 14, Page 12

What actor from the movie "Drive" also played a role in "Lars and the Real Girl"?

I am delighted to tell you that all four of the Dietrich’s screens are up and running! It is wonderful to see folks enjoy a great variety of movies. I am typically not a horror movie fan, but I may have to see “Dream House” because Daniel Craig is quite a draw for me. In fact he is my favorite Bond. I know I have said this before, but we can’t thank everyone enough for their continued efforts helping Tunkhannock and the Dietrich after the flood. In addition to movies, the Dietrich has a wonderful variety of events for all ages this month. For little ones, the Dietrich Children’s Theatre will be back with free performances Friday, October 14 at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 15 at 11 a.m. This time, our acting troupe will perform Rudyard Kipling’s “Just So Stories.” I’ve read the script, and it’s delightful. During this staged tale, audience members will take a ride down the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River and travel back in time to see how some of the animals we know today were different in ancient times. We will be able to see how the curious Elephant gets his trunk; how the lazy Camel earns his hump; and why the Cat still walks alone in the wet, wild woods. I can’t wait to see families laughing and experiencing live theatre once again at the Dietrich. Thanks to funding from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, admission is free. Call us at 570.996.1500 for tickets. We will also be going on a bus trip this month. Join us Wednesday, October 12 for a fall foliage adventure to Dingman’s Ferry and Milford. First we will tour one of Pennsylvania’s castles, Grey Towers (the Gifford Pinchot Estate). After a delicious lunch at Mount Haven Resort, we will visit Dingman’s Ferry and walk the McDade Trail (two miles), if time permits. At the end of the day we will have free time in Milford’s Historic District for antiquing, walking and shopping. Our tour guide for the day will be Jane Frye, she is just full of great information about the places we go, plus she is a naturist so she can tell you about almost all of the region’s plant life. Admission is $100 and pre-registration is required. Call the Dietrich at 570.996.1500 to sign up. Our artists-in-residence Amy and Steve Colley will be offering new art classes in October as well. Children, ages five to 12 will be able to experience Drawing See Dietrich , Page 13

Filmmaker plans dinner and a movie BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP.- This weekend, a dinner can help lead to a movie. The Chinchilla Hose Company will host a pasta dinner fundraiser Oct. 9, from 1 to 5 p.m., with all the money raised going to the production of the local film “Crazy Truth.” Written and directed by 20-year- old Clarks Summit resident Mattie Moyer, the film tells the story of five friends setting out on a ghost adventure. On their way, the group

runs into an old friend, Drew, who seems depressed. In an effort to cheer him up they invite him to join. They realize it is a bad idea when Drew attempts to take charge of the trip and lead the friends to a different destination. “He starts going more and more crazy and they wind up going to this abandoned house,” said Moyer. The film is based on a true event from Moyer’s life that happened about three years ago. He said that after completing his first film, “With In,”

he was seeking to start work on a new film. He thought his experience would be a good jumping off-point to the fictional work. “I wanted to start on another film, and decided to make more of a suspense film rather than a horror film, so I thought maybe that’s a good idea, and I decided to use that, but add more stuff,” said Moyer. After writing the script, Moyer held auditions and began filming in July. He said at halfway to completion he decided to hold a fundraiser to help defray costs con-

Guiding the performer

Acting and music classes offered at the Comm WAVERLY - In March, Michaela Moore received an e-mail from Stephen Wangh, her former professor at New York University. Wangh studied with Jerzy Grotowski in 1967 and has taught his physical approach to acting at New York University, Naropa University and in workshops throughout Europe and America for more than 25 years. Moore is the executive director and owner of “All About Theatre” Performing Arts School; Camp Director for “Camp Create” for special needs children; and executive director of the Abington Youth Theatre Company. She earned a degree in Experimental Theatre and Vocal Performance from NYU, and as a result of this e-mail from Wangh, Moore applied for a program and was accepted with a partial scholarship to participate in one of his workshops. “It’s a bunch of really intense and incredible teachers,” said Moore. “The program was held for theatre educators to review the work and also to learn how to implement it with students.” “I am planning to take that work and apply it to my students’ classes. ” She added, “I’m really excited to be able to take the expertise of professors from NYU and Yale and bring them to Waverly.” Waverly Community House Executive Director Maria Wilson said “Over the years we have watched Michaela Moore and All About Theatre transform young, budding actors and actresses into confident performers in a matter of weeks. She has a wonderful ability of eliciting a wonderful performance from each child and the kids have a blast in the process. The Comm is thrilled to offer this class to the community.” According to acrobatoftheheart.com/workshop.html, practices at the workshop

I found something that I love doing and sticking to it.” “With In” was screened at the Marquee Theater in Scranton, and the Pittsburgh Horror Film Festival. Moyer said he’s hoping after “Crazy Truth” is completed it could get in to a few more festivals, and possibly distributed through Netflix. “That’s my goal, but it’s not all about getting my film in a major company, it’s about doing what I love doing and showing people my work,” said Moyer. Area residents can help Moyer achieve his goal by

visiting the Pasta Dinner Fundraiser Sunday. For more information, call 570.309.7042 or 570.983.6015. Cost of the dinner is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages five to 12, free for children under five, $8.50 for take out. The Chinchilla Hose Company is located at 113 Shady Lane Rd., Chinchilla. In addition to films, Moyer also films weddings and special events through his production company Mattie Films. For more information, visit www.imattiefilms.com.

nected with finishing the project. Moyer said he has already seen an outpouring of support from the community toward his film, with several local businesses donating food to the event. And, from his parents, Al and Daniela Moyer, who are assisting. “They’ve been very supportive, especially my dad. He’s helping me with the fundraiser, he’s always helping me looking for locations. My mom’s really supportive, too,” said Moyer. “Basically they just love what I’m doing, and love that

include Grotowski’s physical exercises: “Corporels” and “Plastiques” body-centered text work; breath work; image work; presence work; vocal training; impulse-channeling: “I Am One Who” and focused observation of the training on both the practical and pedagogical level. All About Theatre is located within the Waverly Community House at 1115 North Abington Road in Waverly.

The class will culminate in a performance. Group one: Ages 6 to 10 and Group two: Ages 11 to 18. Group One meets Tuesday, 5:30 - 7 p.m. Group Two: Tuesday, 7:15 - 8:45 p.m. Classes run Tuesdays Oct. 4 May 15; Rehearsals run May 16 - 31; and performances will be June 3, 4 and 5. Students must be available for all rehearsal and performance dates and all dates are subject to change. Moore also offers Private Acting Lessons and Speech Coaching where, according to Moore, students can learn all aspects of acting, speech and voice, oral presentation and auditions during one- on -one instruction with a professional actor. The lessons and coaching are offered for ages 6 to adult. The tuition is $35 per 45-minute lesson. Private voice and piano lessons are also available and include professional coaching in all aspects of voice production and singing and will learn how to sing their favorite songs or get that part in the school musical.

WAVERLY- Liz Feller, who was awarded the Waverly Community House’s Belin Arts Scholarship in 2006, chose the title for her upcoming Belin Arts workshop, “The Song is You!” to emphasize the creativity that every person possesses. “We all have songs within us even if we have never had any musical training or believe we can’t carry a tune,” said Feller. She added, “I hope that participants will come away from the workshop with the sense of joy that comes from tapping into abilities they perhaps didn’t realize they had. More specifically I think they will learn the basics of writing parody songs-a bit of knowledge which comes in handy when you can’t think of a gift for that special occasion. I like to begin with a series of theatre games and hands-on exercises. We will also use music as a springboard for getting in touch with our imaginations. ” Feller is a composer and lyricist; roster artist in music and musical theatre for the Arts in Education program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts; and is currently working on a

new musical, “The Scarecrow,” based on a play by Percy Mackaye. For those who have a song at heart or a desire to learn and create, the Waverly Community House, located at1115 North Abington Road in Waverly, will present a variety of workshops led by a roster of professional artists who will share their talents and experience during the month of October as part of the “Belin Arts Saturdays!” The workshops will be held Oct. 8,15 and 22, culminating with an evening with Barry Hannigan at the piano Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Comm gymnasium. Peter Belin established the F. Lammot Belin Arts Scholarship in1962 to honor his father, who was a “patron of the arts.” The scholarship is awarded each year by the Waverly Community House and artists may apply for a scholarship on line by visiting belinarts.org. The deadline to apply is December15. In addition to Feller’s workshop, this year’s Belin Arts programming will include Oct. 8: Painting with Robert Stark from 9 a.m. to12 p.m.; Photography with Vincent Cianni from 9 a.m. to12 p.m. and Pottery with

Mark Chuck from1to 4 p.m.; Oct15: Drawing with Bill Chickillo from 9 a.m. to12 p.m.; Writing with Karen Blomain from 9 a.m. to12 p.m.; Dancing with Judine Somerville from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.; Drawing with Pamela Parsons from1to 4 pm and Theatre Barry Hannigan with Liz Feller from1to 4 pm. Oct 22: Collages with Bill Chickillo from 9 a.m. to12 p.m.; Piano Masterclass with Barry Hannigan from1to 3 p.m.; and Printmaking with Shelley Thorstensen from1to 5 p.m. Hannigan’s workshop, “Piano Masterclass” Oct. 22 is open to both piano students and observers. He will work with participants on style, technique and musicality as students try to incorporate “these comments into his or her playing on the spot.” At the Belin Arts Concert Oct. 22, Hannigan, a1987 Belin Scholar and a professor of music at Bucknell University, will entertain the audience with a wide variety of music, thus the title “Rachmaninoff to Ragtime,” said the pianist.

Hannigan is the recipient of the highest university award for “inspirational teaching,” has recorded for Opus One, SEAMUS, SCI, and Radio Telefis Eireann in Dublin, has released three solo CDs for Black Canyon Records; Brio, Kaleidoscope and Rachmaninoff to Ragtime. He has toured internationally and is the recipient of the Ford, Belin, Surdna and Presser Foundations awards. The workshops are supported by a grant from Lackawanna County and are offered in partnership with Marywood University and are approved for ACT 48 continuing education hours. Workshops are $35 per workshop fee, two or more $30 per workshop, $15 Student fee per workshop, and $45 Continuing Education Credit Workshop. Tickets for the concert are $18 or $8 for students. All workshops and the concert will take place at the Waverly Community House.

Alex Seeley

Shotwell, who earned an Associate of Fine Arts degree, did not have to do a show. Seeley, a Bachelor of Fine Arts student, will be working on his senior show in the spring. “It brings back a lot of memories,” said Simon. “This is a lot less stressful though.” Shotwell explained that he had done a project “this expansive.” “There are a lot of details that go into the show that you don’t think about,” he explained. “It’s been a process of keeping up with the other two.” Seeley feels the show will be good prep work for his upcoming exhibit in the spring. “It’s been really good for me,” he said. “I’m planning on taking the same direction with my senior show. The experience of how to shoot and

make images more dynamic will definitely go into it.” As an accessory to the pieces, music, fog and food will be on hand for the opening Oct. 7. “We’re trying to sell the atmosphere,” said Shotwell. “We’re trying to make it something you won’t forget.” Simon shares the sentiments. “I’m really hoping it’s going to be as over-the-top and awesome as I think it will be.” The gallery opening will be held during the Scranton First Friday celebrations Oct. 7. New Visions will be open from 5-10 p.m., two hours longer than the other participating galleries. The artwork will be on display for the entire month, up through Halloween night. For more information, visit New Visions Studio and Gallery on Facebook.

Continued from Page 11 shapes. “The pumpkins are a lot of fun to make,” Simon said. “The symbols I use in my paintings are based on everyday life – things that are important to me. They’re still subjective though. Things aren’t always what they seem.” The paintings will have an additional interactive aspect as guests will be able to use black light flashlights on them for an added effect. Simon will also be contributing a series of books made from old VHS tape boxes. Simon’s final contribution was the suggestion of current Keystone art student Alex Seeley. Simon was very familiar with Seeley’s work as a photographer and knew that he had the right mindset for the show. “Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big horror film fan,” said Seeley, who will be presenting a series of photos that, together, will tell a horror story. “I wanted to pay homage to the movies I love. The difficulty has been learning to tell a story just through photos. It’s been a lot of trial and error.” Seeley’s black and white photos will play out like a movie. He employed the help of fellow Keystone student Emily Taylor, as well as Keystone graduate Kevin Garrub-

ba, to stand in for the shots. While all three artists are bringing different mediums to the show, Boisseau says the collaboration has worked out well. “I’m very happy with the way the show has come together. It’s important that they are friends and that they get along. The show is really framed around how the works complement each other.” The three artists, along with Bossieau, have held weekly meetings where the artists bring in their work and give “mini-critiques.” “It’s nice to have ideas to bounce off with,” said Shotwell. Along with the different artwork, the three artists are also working at different levels of experience.

OBITUARY

Sound Finance with Eric Weinberg

Virginia F. Gabriel September 26, 2011

Raising money- smart kids Kids are fascinated by how many pennies are in a dollar, or how much candy they can really buy for 75 cents. But teaching them the value of money and the importance of saving – now that’s another story. Children (and many adults) tend to live in the moment, so encouraging them to save for a rainy day can be challenging, though not impossible. Setting the right example and instilling good money management habits while kids are still young is the first step towards raising financially literate adults. Allowance Basics: The 10-10-80 Rule As soon as children are old enough to handle small amounts of money (typically around first or second grade) they should be allowed some of their own cash to manage. Once you’ve established the amount, frequency and guidelines of allowances in your home, sit with your children to discuss a plan for saving, sharing and spending. A good rule of thumb is the 10-10-80 allocation: 10 percent to savings; 10 percent to charity/church and 80 percent to keep and/or spend. Like many of us, most children will not be initially thrilled at the idea of saving 10 percent of their money. But teaching them that saving isn’t what we do with money that’s leftover, rather, it’s what we set aside right off the top, can establish a positive money management pattern that will carry them into adulthood. It helps to give young children a reason to save by identifying some goals they may have. Inspire their desire to save by brainstorming about big ticket items the child has been wanting – a computer game, microscope, etc. Then sit down and figure out a savings plan that will help them achieve their goal. If you believe in paying your child for odd jobs and chores, help him come up with income producing ideas to accomplish his goal. Not only will this help

instill a lesson on the value of money, it will also make the purchased item more meaningful once it is finally obtained. You can also teach your children about the magic of compound interest by offering to add interest to their savings for each week or month they leave it untouched. Watching their money grow will do more to motivate them than any number of lectures on the subject. (Saving $5 a week at 6 percent interest compounded quarterly will total about $266 after a year, $1,503 after 5 years, and $3,527 after 10 years.) Teaching children to share begins in pre-school so applying it to the financial arena may not be as difficult as you may think. Encourage your children to set aside 10 percent of their allowance for charity. Allow them to contribute to organizations that help families and children within your community, and also allow them to participate in food, clothing and toy drives. Be sure to track their contributions in a notebook you review at the end of the year so they can see the many ways their generosity impacted others. Pint-size philanthropy pays off in later years by establishing a healthy attitude toward money and the many good things it can accomplish – not just purchase. Lead by Example. At the end of the day, children are going to learn more from what we do than what we say. The best way to teach our children good money management habits is to practice them ourselves. Walk the talk by sticking to an established savings plan and budget; pay off debts in a timely manner; live within your budget and resist impulse shopping; give to charitable causes that are meaningful to you; help protect your family’s future with adequate insurance coverage and finally, maintain a teachable attitude yourself. Make wise money management choices that you can pass on for generations to come.

Warriors edge Comets to stay undefeated DUNMORE- Abington Heights High School football team gave a valiant effort, but it fell just short when Delaware Valley’s John Harsch recovered a Comets’ fumble at the Warriors’ 3-yard line with 3:33 left in the fourth quarter Oct. 1. “I saw the ball pop out when I was coming over and I just fell on it,” Harsch said. Harsch was also a big factor on offense with two touchdowns and an important third down conversion late in the game, leading the Warriors to a 20-14 victory over Abington Heights in an LFC Division 1 game that was moved to Dunmore Veterans Memorial Stadium after conditions at “the Pit” were deemed unplayable. “It’s just great,” Harsch said of getting the win. “My sophomore and junior years, we lost to Abington (Heights), even my freshman year we lost to them, too. This is my first career victory over them. “It’s such a big rivalry, we circle them on our schedule every year.” The Comets struck first when quarterback Dante Pasqualichio connected with wide receiver J.C. Show for a 12-yard touchdown on a fade pass in the backcorner of the end zone to cap a 17-play 79-yard drive. Brandon Pacyna added the extra point to give Abington Heights a 7-0 lead with 4:10 left in the first quarter. Show finished the game with 8 catches for 95 yards. “J.C. is a heck of a receiver,” Abington Heights head coach Joe Repshis said. “He’s a kid that runs great routes and has great hands. If you put the ball anyplace where he has an opportunity to catch it, we feel very confident that he’s gonna come down with it.” After the Warriors stopped Pasqualichio on a quarterback sneak, Harsch scored on 27-yard run to cap a 4-play 67-yard drive

CLARKS SUMMIT- Abington Heights High School senior Sean Burke began running cross country in seventh grade and credited the friendships he has formed as the reason he enjoys the sport. “I just love the team as a whole,” he said. “We’ve bonded so well and most guys have Sean Burke been running with me since seventh grade. Running with them and seeing them everyday is just great.” He credited his work ethic and determination for the success he has been able to achieve. “I might have some natural Erin Jaeger talent, but where I’ve got to today is all from working hard and really putting in the mileage,” the Clarks Summit resident said. As a senior, Burke has taken it upon himself to serve as a leader to the underclassmen on the team. “I definitely feel like I’m responsible for bringing them up, because once I’m gone they’re gonna be the leaders,” he said. Burke also participates in indoor and outdoor track for the Comets. According to the senior, his coach Rob Ahrens has meant a lot toward his development as a runner. “He’s really treated me like a friend,” Burke said. “He goes out and runs with me when he can and really encourages me to try hard. He really hits that level between not enough and too much.” Ahrens said he thinks Burke has improved his skill set over the years to become a complete runner. “He’s developed into a pretty balanced runner overall,” he said. “When he was a freshman and sophomore, he didn’t really have a whole lot of foot speed, but he’s really developed that. He’s just pretty solid overall.”

PACE

Ahrens thinks Jaeger’s ability to get off to a fast start and find her stride is one of her best skills. “She is kind of a frontrunner,” he said. “She likes to get out hard and then settle into a pace. That is one of her strengths.” Ahrens has been impressed with Jaeger’s desire for the sport since she joined the team. “She’s always been a hard worker,” he said. “You kind of have to be in order to be a good runner.” The Waverly resident thinks her ability to finish races with a flourish is one of her best strengths. “I think my finish is pretty strong, I can get a good kick at the end,” Jaeger said. Jaeger advanced to states as a freshman and thought the experience was a rewarding one, even though she didn’t finish well. “It was really scary, but I just wanted to go there for the experience,” she said. “I wasn’t there obviously to get a medal or to even do well. It was hard running the race

Continued from Page 1 The Comets boys’ roster is very young and Ahrens thinks Burke has worked to make the team stronger as a group. “He’s been a really, really good help in bringing the team totally together. We have 11 ninth grade boys on the team this year and he’s done a really good job including them and teaching them more about running.” Burke advanced to states last season and is hoping make a return trip. Burke, 17, is the son Mike and Nancy Burke.

In recognition of her impact as a player and leader, Baptist Bible College Assistant Athletic Director and Head Women’s Basketball coach Amber Jacobs has been inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Hall of Fame. Jacobs, who graduated from Boston College in 2004, is entering her second season at BBC. Her five seasons in the WNBA and time as a coach at two university basketball programs gives her a unique perspective in leading the BBC Lady Defenders. In a formal induction ceremony Sept. 16, she joined 11 other athletes and two administrators. The 14 inductees were also recognized at halftime of the Eagles’ football game against Duke University the following day. Among those also honored were NHL Hall of Famer Brian Leetch and former NFL star Bill Romanowski. “I am grateful for my days at Boston College and the life lessons I was challenged with as a student-athlete,” Jacobs said. “This is an unbelievable honor and I am so appreciative to be recognized in this way.” As a high-scoring guard for the Boston College Eagles from 2000-2004, she ranks sixth on the program’s all-time scoring list. She earned AllRookie Team honors in the Big East Conference as a freshman. As a junior, she led the team to their first-ever NCAA Tournament Sweet

Sixteen, and she gained AllBig East Second Team accolades after guiding the team to their first-ever Big East Tournament Championship as a senior. Jacobs, who played at Abington Heights High School in Clarks Summit, was inducted into the Northeastern Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 2010. The Boston College Hall of Fame was founded by the Varsity Club in 1970. It includes over 400 of the finest student athletes of Boston College. The Hall of Fame Wall is displayed in the Conte Forum, the college’s multipurpose arena. After college, Jacobs’ professional career in the WNBA took her to the Minnesota Lynx, the Washington Mystics, and the Los Angeles Sparks, playing alongside Lisa Leslie and Candace Parker. Her coaching experience includes time at the University of Toledo and the University of Rhode Island. Her first season with the Lady Defenders brought a 15-11 overall record and a 4-0 record in NCCAA II East Region play. Four players received awards for their accomplishments, and Coach Jacobs was named NCCAA II East Region Coach of the Year. Learn more about BBC Defender Athletics at www.bbcdefenders.com.

because I didn’t have my team with me and I didn’t expect that big of a meet at all.” She credited the schedule her coach has prepared for her as the reason she continues to develop as a runner. “He’s been really helpful,” she said. “He knows how I run and has set workouts that really help me improve during the season.” Jaeger, 15, is the daughter of Karl and Suzanne Jaeger and lives in Waverly. She is also a member of the AH track and field team. Ahrens thinks the experience both runners have gained has helped with their running, both physically and mentally. “I’ve seen them become more intelligent as runners by learning how to run a smart race,” he said. “They also build more confidence with each good race they have. That confidence helps to run the way they should be capable of running.” Their coach has also been excited by their strong start and is hoping each runner can

make a repeat trip to states and have better success this time around. Burke placed fifth overall with a time of 16:52 at a race at Hershey’s state course during an invitational. Jaeger finished 13th overall with a time of 20:23 in the PIAA Foundation Invitational at Hershey’s course against some of the best competition in the state. This past weekend, Burke finished sixth overall with a time of 16:04 and Jaeger finished in 45th place with a time of 19:51 in the Paul Short Invitational at Lehigh University, an event that also features elite talent from around Pa. Both runners set personal best times at the Valley View course this season. Burke finished in 15:58 while Jaeger clocked in at 18:58. “We would really like to get both of them back to the state meet and see them improve on their position from last year,” Ahrens said. “I think they both have a shot at getting a state medal. That would be the highest goal.”

Runners will gather this Sunday for the 16th Annual Steamtown Marathon, held Oct. 9. Unlike previous years, however, there will be a new element added to the race: science. For the first time, a team of researchers from Marywood University will study the development of lung water in marathon participants running in Sunday’s race. “We have an opportunity to do a study that has some interesting physiology,” said Gerald Zavorsky, Ph.D., director of the human physiology lab and associate professor at Marywood University. “We are looking to see if there is an incidence of water accumulation that’s triggered from marathon running.” The central question the study seeks to answer: Is there a relationship between a runner’s finishing time and lung water accumulation? According to Dr. Zavorsky, all types of runners—slow, medium and fast—develop lung water, but it’s unclear whether this water build-up affects performance. What’s more, the implications of this study can be significant, says Dr. Zavorsky. For more information, call 570.961.4592 or visit www.marywood.edu/hpl.

Continued from Page 1 that took just 33 seconds. Joey Hunt added the extra point to tie the game with 25 seconds left in the half. The Comets fumbled on the ensuing possession, but Delaware Valley was unable to capitalize as Hunt’s 44-yard field goal attempt fell short as time expired in the first half. The Warriors took their first lead of the game on the first drive of the second half when quarterback Bryan Schor found Harsch for a 6-yard touchdown to end a 13-play 64-yard drive. After the extra point, Delaware Valley led 14-7 with 5:44 remaining in the third quarter. “Johnny (Harsch) has played well for us this year,” Delaware Valley head coach Keith Olsommer said. “He’s done a lot of really nice things and continues to get better each week. We gotta find more ways to get him the football.” Abington Heights answered right back on the next possession to pull back even with 1:00 remaining in the third quarter. Pasqualichio connected with Sean Sanderson for a 15-yard touchdown. The key play of the drive was a 24-yard completion from Pasqualichio to Pacyna. Pasqualichio completed 18 of 35 passes for 196 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. After a Comets’ punt, Delaware Valley barely averted disaster when the ball looked to have hit a player a Warriors’ player and be recovered by the Comets, but possession was awarded to Delaware Valley at midfield. On the next play, Schor connected with Kyle Zimnik on a 50-yard touchdown down the sideline. After a missed extra point, the Warriors led 20-14 with 9:57 left in the game. Abington Heights was back in business at the Delaware Valley 21-yard line after Corey Degilio returned the kickoff 48 yards and Pasqualichio hit Show for a 26-yard completion, but the threat was ended when Pasqualichio was intercepted by Warriors’ defensive back Marc Wagner at the 7-yard line. Despite the miscues, Repshis was pleased with his team’s performance. “Coming into this week, we addressed protecting the football and not giving the opponent more opportunities,” he said. “We turned the ball over a few times, but every time we had some adversity our kids answered the bell and we had an opportunity to win at the end. I’m proud of the way the kids played until the last seconds ticked off the clock. “We’re gonna accept the fact that we lost, but we’re gonna learn from it and get better.” After the Harsch fumble recovery in the fourth quarter, the Warriors’ chewed precious time off the clock and punter Connor Decker pinned the Comets deep in their own territory with a 54-yard punt. The Delaware Valley defense held tough as Abington Heights turned the ball over on downs ending any last-minute hopes.

son alive. “They physically kicked our butt from beginning to end,” Lakeland Chiefs coach Jeff Wasilchak said. “When it happens, it’s frustrating sometimes, but give them credit. They kicked our butt.” Lackawanna Trail established an early lead after stopping the Chiefs on its opening drive and scoring on a 13-play, 55-yard touchdown drive. Lions’ quarterback Caleb Darling kept the drive alive when he completed a 16-yard pass to Matt Aten on 3rd and 11. He also converted on 4th and 2 in the red zone, which led to a 3-yard touchdown run by Eric Laytos. “He did a great job just running the offense,” Lackawanna Trail coach Steve Jervis said. “He spread the ball around and threw some clutch passes, and he’s been doing it all year.” Kyle Kiehart led Lakeland on its ensuing possession throwing for 35 yards and running for a 20-yard touchdown to tie the game at seven. After forcing a punt on the Lions’ next possession, the Chiefs drove the ball inside the 15 -yard line, but Lackawanna Trail kept Lakeland out of the end zone and forced a turnover on downs. The Lions capitalized on the defensive stand with an 85-yard touchdown drive led by Laytos. Laytos rushed for 49 yards on five carries during the drive. He finished the game with 149 yards rushing on 20 carries. “Eric is our workhorse,” Jervis said. “He gets the tough yards.” Darling punched it in on a 1-yard quarterback sneak to give the Lions a 14-7 lead going into the half. Three plays into the second half, Marvess Rosiak burst through a hole

Monday night. The two finalists from the 2010 District 2-4 Class 3A Regional are both back. Defending champion Taquoia Lee of Williamsport is seeded first while Courtney Ostrowski of Abington Heights is second. Ostrowski was considered District 2 champion last year as the player from the district who advanced

at the line of scrimmage and raced for a 45-yard touchdown run, giving the Lions a 21-7. Lackawanna Trail ran for more than 300 yards as a team and four touchdowns. “You’ve got to give a lot of credit to our offensive line,” Jervis said. “In crucial times, we were able to run the ball and keep the chains moving.” Lakeland fought back and almost cut the deficit to seven, but the referees called back a Kiehart touchdown run because of a hold. The Lions capitalized on the penalty when Jonathon Zedar picked off a Kiehart pass to help keep the Chiefs scoreless for the second straight quarter. “They have a very explosive offense,” Jervis said. “I give credit to our defensive coordinator and our defensive coaches that we contained them well enough to win the game.” Late in the third quarter, Jeremy Greenley returned a punt to the Lakeland 25 yard line to give the Lions a scoring opportunity. Lackawanna Trail took advantage of the short field on a four-play touchdown drive capped off by a 9-yard run by Greenley early in the fourth quarter. Despite the Lions’ commanding 28-7 lead, Lakeland fought back behind the arm of Kiehart. Kiehart went 5-5 on the ensuing drive and threw for 59 yards, including a 28yard touchdown pass to Alex Filarsky to cut the Lions’ lead to 28-14 with 9:28 remaining. “You always play until the end,” Wasilchak said. “The problem is you have to play from beginning to end.” Darling threw an interception late in the fourth on Lackawanna Trail’s next possession but the Lions’ defense ended any chance of a Lakeland comeback and secured the 28-14 victory. “We knew coming in we were not going to be able to make many mistakes,” Jervis said. “We played a
