NORTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP – Jack Sarnoski recognizes that the recently announced preservation of 17 more acres of land on his beef farm will bring added financial stability for his family, but that’s not the most important part. “The best part is knowing the land’s going to be preserved. I don’t think I’d want to be upstairs looking down in 100 years and see houses all over. Once you build on it, it’s gone. There’s no getting it back,� said Sarnoski, 64, of Sarnoski Hill Farm in North Abington Township. Sarnoski’s beef farm, purchased in 1987, was one of 19 farms that had a part of their land preserved through the Pennsylvania Agricultural Lands Preservation Board last month. The program, which he applied for in March, has kept 455,208 acres on 4,208 farms from being commercially developed over the last 23 years. For Sarnoski, it helps continue a family tradition that started when his father, See Preserved , Page 8

The Lackawanna Historical Society announces the program “Model Trains through the Ages” in partnership with Steamtown National Historic Site. The program, which will focus on model railroading as a holiday tradition, was inspired last year when Steamtown Superintendent Kip Hagen visited the Society’s headquarters, the Catlin House, for its Holiday Open House and reminisced about his childhood when he viewed the model railroad display under the Christmas Tree. He and Historical Society Director Mary Ann Moran Savakinus discussed how the tradition had influenced their holiday memories and realized that everyone they knew seemed to have a connection to model and/or toy trains. So this summer, representatives from Steamtown and the Historical Society came together to develop a program and invite local model train experts to be involved. The program will officially begin Nov. 27 when Historical Society volunteer Pat Tobin and local Märklin Digital Dealer Lee Nolan will set up a Märklin winter display in Steamtown’s Visitor Center Changing Exhibit Gallery. A photograph exhibit of the work of Angela Trotta Thomas will also be displayed in this space for the season. During the day, Nolan and Tobin will be available. On the following weekend, Dec. 3 and 4, Clem O’Jevitch of Warrior Run Loco will set up a live steam garden railroad display in Steamtown’s History Museum and be available to answer questions.

Then on Dec. 10 and 11, Steamtown will welcome local model train “doctor” Dan Emmick who will conduct an “Ask the Expert” session, Saturday from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 - 2 p.m., at the site’s History Museum. He will bring examples of challenging repairs, discuss common problems, and take questions from the audience. On the final weekend, Dec. 17 and 18, a group of model railroad enthusiasts including Frank Gardner, Ron Moore, Ron Moskalczak, and Mike Passero will present a 1950’s Lionel Christmas display at Steamtown’s History Museum including a visit with Santa on both days between 11a.m. and 1 p.m. A free raffle for a “1/48th” scale (O Gauge) boxcar from “The Greater Scranton Train” sponsored by Penn Security Bank will be offered to all participants. “The Greater Scranton Train” project was introduced in 2010 by Penn Security to create a railroad car each year to recognize a longtime business from the greater Scranton area as a limitededition numbered box car that reflects the business name and logo. These cars are ready to run and are manufactured in the United States and produced in Pa. Steamtown and the Lackawanna Historical Society will schedule special showings of Model Train themed documentaries and films throughout the holiday season. For more information, contact the Lackawanna Historical Society at 344.3841.

ACOG talks trees

Holiday SPIRIT BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE

BY EMILY CULLEY Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS GREEN- This month’s Nov. 3 meeting of the Abington Community of Governments heard from chairs of Clarks Green and Clarks Summit Shade Tree Committees. Mike Gockley from the Clarks Green Shade Tree Committee and Donna Zagrapan from the Clarks Summit Shade Tree Commission both spoke on the benefits of trees in the Abington area. Aside from cleaner air and soil and preventing water runoff, Zagrapan added that “Communities with Tree City Status are more likely to get grants then those without.” They also mentioned that if the local Shade Tree Committees and Commissions worked together they could be eligible for more grants and gather more volunteers for tree planting. Gockley also said that there are several places in the area that could benefit from tree planting. “There are so many places we could put trees in the Abington (Area Community) Park, we could stay forever.” He and Zagrapan mentioned the sports fields, the dog park, as well as the parking lot, would be protected by rainwater runoff if more trees were planted. Council Vice President Dennis Macheska also mentioned some area in Ransom Township he believed would benefit from trees being planted. “We own a lot of property and want to make it useable to people, maybe put in a few walking trails.” Other member of the council expressed an interest in learning more about the local Shade Tree Committees. Council discussed PPL cutting trees in Waverly to free space around the power lines. Bill White of Waverly mentioned that while they did not do so recently, in the past they have been known to “wreck the trees.” Others commented on similar happenings in the area and Marnie O’Dea Palmer of Clarks Green expressed the opinion that legislation should be passed about who PPL hires to remove trees. In Factoryville, Chuck Wrobel reported that the pavilion by the soccer field is completed and they are trying to repair intersections on Church Hill that were damaged by recent flooding. Dalton is also recovering from the flood and seeking solutions to losing the Lily Lake Road Bridge. The Nominating Committee announced slate for council positions: for president, Dennis Macheska, current president; for vice president, Patrick Williams; for treasurer, Chuck Wrobel, current treasurer and for secretary, Marnie O’Dea Palmer.

Leah Ducato Rudolph, Abington Community Library director said, “We are not yet sure as to the specific quantity of items, or what indeed they will be, but we have made space to accommodate 24 linear feet of local history material.

CLARKS SUMMIT- The third annual “Holiday Marketplace” will take place on Nov. 12 at the Abington Community Library from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “It was started in 2009, when funding was cut to the libraries,” co-chair Dorothy Boccella said. “We needed to raise money on our own and did really well the first two years.” This year’s theme for the event is a Victorian Holiday. “We really work hard on the event,” Boccella said. “We’ve been working for months because there are a lot of different aspects. We’re really hoping for a good turnout.” According to Boccella, the event has something for the whole family. “If the husbands don’t want to shop, they can read newspapers or magazines in our quiet room,” she said. A new feature that was added this year is a “Mini Marketplace” for children.“Kids can buy small inexpensive items for their parents or grandparents and have them wrapped right there to keep them as a surprise,” Boccella said. According to Boccella, raffle tickets are also being sold for a variety of prizes that include: gift certificates for restaurants, an overnight stay at Nichols Village Hotel and Spa, a oneyear membership to the YMCA, baby baskets put together by the staff, items made by their quilting group, a lottery ticket tree that was donated by the Board of Directors and more. There will be entertainment

Members of the Teen Leadership Committee, led by cochair Sandy Longo, will be working at a gift wrapping station and will host a bake sale, with proceeds for the library. “They do a lot at the library,” Boccella said. “They (Teen Leadership Committee) run programs that children can attend including Story Time Teens. They are a nice group of kids.” Admission is free and the library will remain open during the event.

Manager of the Parents as Teachers Program, said parent-child interaction is a necessary factor in the success of the group’s activities. “They build relationships with each other,” she said. “Relationships are a very important part of the programs here.” EOTC, according to its Play and Learn Group Fact Sheet, is a “local nonprofit agency with a mission to promote family stability and economic self-sufficiency,” and the group has two objectives. First, “To provide an early learning foundation to help at-risk young children succeed in school and life,” and second, “To increase parental competencies for ensuring the healthy devel-

opment of their children.” Ruth Connolly, EOTC Development Director, said the program stresses the importance of the parent and child doing things together. As one of the group activities, she said, the parents and children sometimes make and eat breakfast together. Connolly also said the group, which has an annual enrollment of about 25 children and their parents, is made up of a wide diversity of people from all walks of life. She said that although the parents who participate may seem to have nothing in common with each other at first, they are eventually drawn together by one common thread: the love they

have for their children and the desire to do what’s best for them. The Parents as Teachers Program is funded by the Pa. Department of Public Welfare, according to Terre Cognetti, EOTC Resource Development. Cognetti said via email that although the curriculum recommends a group component, limited funding has prevented the organization from offering one in the past. Then came a “generous corporate partner,” Sanofi Pasteur and its local VaxServe subsidiary, which has fully funded the Play and Learn Group every year since 2009 with its Annual Lackawanna County Community Fundraiser dinner. Cognetti

said VaxServe employees also volunteer occasionally with hands-on help for the program. Gula said the organization is blessed to have the funding and it’s something they don’t take lightly. She expressed gratitude to Sanofi Pasteur and VaxServe for their contributions. “Their funding helped make it a really quality program,” she said. The Play and Learn Group meets year round every Thursday from 10 - 11:30 a.m. at the EOTC Seventh Avenue Center, 431, North 7th Avenue, Scranton. More information can be found at www.EOTCworks.org, or by contacting Carlene Gula at 570.348.6484.

C.S. hears flood project update BY ROBERT TOMKAVAGE

rtomkavage@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- Steve Armillay, chief of staff to State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich, addressed Clarks Summit Borough council Nov. 2 to discuss the progress of a multi-municipality flood mitigation project. “Dalton is the lead applicant of the grant and there are eight other municipalities involved,” Armillay said. “Before the last serious flooding took place, we met with some farmers near the Newton Ransom area who were concerned that the distribution of water was getting further and further each time and the crop loss was becoming greater. “With it being a multi-municipality grant, there is nothing in Harrisburg like it right now. We think it will get some favorable attention. I think it would be a great impact project,” Armillay said. “We know the Abingtons are in big need of relief.” Janine Port, Center Street, urged council to continue to monitor the speeding problems on her street. Although the police department is using several devices to track speeds and deter speeders, Port asked for them to do more. “There is nothing on the street telling them to slow down,” Port said. “Speeding is really a concern, especially when there are elderly people walking around and a day care center nearby. I’m desperate for anything to be honest with you.” Port has had a petition signed by 30 people who are concerned about the speeding in the street. Police Chief Lou Vitale said the department is making an effort to slow down drivers. “We put in a speed center and I think that has had and effect,” he said. Vitale suggested residents write to their state representatives and ask for another tool to monitor the drivers. He added the department may think about putting neon triangles on the signs to draw attention. Elizabeth Klein, Summit Avenue, approached borough about a large tree that fell in her yard from a nearby alley. Klein said she has lived at the residence for almost 40 years and the borough has always taken care of issues in the alley. The alley is undedicated, therefore it does not belong to the borough or Klein, according to borough manager Virginia Kehoe. Council commended the Department of Public Works (DPW) for negotiating a new contact before the expiration of the current one Dec. 31. Dori Waters of the Abington Area Community Classroom (AACC) gave council an update on the progress of proposed plans to covert the former Clarks Summit Fire Hall into an “inclusive gathering place where residents of the Abingtons and the surrounding areas can come together for recreational, educational and artistic programs.” Waters is seeking a grant from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and needed the borough to commit as a major partner in order to move forward, which they did. Borough will have its 2012 budget available to the public by Nov. 25, according to Kehoe. Council voted to have the parking meters suspended during the Abington Business Professional Association holiday open house.

Those looking for photography, handmade jewelry or items for home décor, who attend the upcoming Waverly Community House 28th Annual Artisans’ Marketplace, will most likely not leave empty handed. The Artisans’ Marketplace will be held at 1115 N Abington Rd. in Waverly Nov. 19, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Nov. 20, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Among the roster of 35 juried artisans, attendees will find Paul Funke of Paul Funke Photography of Mountain Top and Valerie Kiser of Valerie Kiser Design in Scranton. Funke will return to the Artisans’ Marketplace for his second consecutive year. “I did very well last year, in my opinion, and I’m anxious to be back. Plus, these are nice folks,” said Funke, whose photo, “Towanda, after the Storm,” was awarded “Best Photograph” at the Butternut Gallery in Montrose. He added, “I take what I do (photography) very seriously but I have a lot of fun with it. Going to some of these bridges is a real adventure. I started in photography about three years ago. I really enjoy it. Last year at this show (Waverly Artisans’ Marketplace) I had a very good show and things just catapulted from there. I’ve been asked to exhibit in a couple of college galleries and a couple of other galleries… If original and unique design inspired by rock and roll, horses, winged creatures, nature and commercial art is of interest, Valerie Kiser’s booth at the Artisans’ Marketplace offers hand-printed, Americanmade bamboo, organic cotton and 100 percent cotton and handbags, as well as her limited-edition printed home decor, such as tablecloths, unique pillows, wall art and her line of jewelry. “I began screen-printing in college and started to print for the market in 2000.

Coming home a champion adapt to what the judge wants to see and take that feedback and learn from it. In addition to the advice he received from the judges over the course of last season, Tsaklas also sharpened his skills by attending a two-week forensic camp this summer at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. During the camp he chose the short play he has been performing this season, “Bobby Wilson Can Eat His Own Face,” the story of a boy who runs away from home only to come back after he realizes his life was better than he thought. Tsaklas then worked on the short play five to seven hours each day. The time at the camp made Tsaklas ready for the tournament in October, as well as for the Yale Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament at Yale University in which he competed at the end of September and finished as a semifinalist. The Forensic Team’s local season competition started Oct. 29 with a tournament at Wilkes University. The team will host its own invitational tournament, the “Comet Classic,” Nov.12, at the high school. Tsaklas, the son of Christine and Costas Tsaklas, also competes in duo-interpretation with his partner, junior Meg Carter, and plays viola in the Civic Orchestra at Wyoming Seminary.

Abington Heights High School junior Panos Tsaklas, a member of the school’s Forensic/Speech and Debate Team competed in the 41st Annual New York City Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament held at the Bronx High School of Science and Fordham Preparatory School where he finished in first place in the Humorous Interpretation event. The junior competed against 32 other students, from 138 schools across the country, going through five preliminary rounds, one semifinal round and one final round before being crowned champion at the event, which took place Oct. 15 and 16. “I felt confident in my rounds, but you’re always surprised when you come in first place,” said Tsaklas about winning the tournament. Of the 33 active members on the Forensic/Speech and Debate Team, which includes one student from Lackawanna Trail High School, three were chosen to represent the school in New York: Tsaklas, Shomik Ghosh and Xiaofeng Jie. Of the three, Tsaklas was the only to advance to the finals round. The South Abington Twp. resident joined the team last year as a sophomore after

being encouraged by some of his friends. “I was a little bit skeptical about joining at first,” said Tsaklas. “I didn’t think it would be something I would be really in to, but I thought it sounded kind of interesting so I joined…and fell in love with it. It’s my favorite thing that I do.” Forensic coach Sarah Scranta explained that a tournament can have anywhere from 10 to 15 events. After doing some research online, Tsaklas decided that the event he was most interested in trying was humorous interpretation. “The event that stood the most out to me was humorous interpretation, because it’s fast paced, there’s a lot of characters usually, and you have to be funny and I thought that was really in-

teresting, so that’s what kind of led me to it,” said Tsaklas. “You take a piece of literature, and you cut it down to 10 minutes so it’s a logical story and you basically play every character without using any props. Everything is based off your facial expressions, and your voices.” Tsaklas showed natural talent for the event almost immediately, and Scranta said he has made great strides over the course of the year. She credited some of his improvement with the tournament setup. “One of the neat things about forensics is you get feedback from judges,” said Scranta. “And, it’s a great way to learn how to take constructive criticism, because the goal is to make that judge pick you. And you have to

Comet Classic set for Nov. 12

The Abington Heights Speech and Debate/Forensic Team will host the inaugural “Comet Classic” Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament Nov. 12, from 8 a.m. -6 p.m., at Abington Heights High School in Clarks Summit.

The public is welcome to observe at no charge. The Comet Classic is a fundraiser for the Abington Heights Forensic Team. Proceeds will help fund transportation costs for the team to attend upcoming tournaments. The Friends of Forensics Booster Club invites the community to support the tournament in several ways: volunteering for the day’s events; donations of food, baked goods and paper products and monetary donations. In addition, the Friends of Forensics Booster Club invites members of the community to volunteer as judges for the speech and debate events. Individuals who have been a member of a speech and debate team and/or those who have experience with public speaking are encouraged to judge. However, no experience is required and free training is available. The Comet Classic will offer the tournament grand sweepstakes award in honor of Eleanor and James Langan.

John, operated a dairy farm. “I was born and raised on a farm. Once that farming gets in your blood, you’re stuck,” he said. “We’ve always been farmers. It was a lot of hard work, but it was a good life.” He’s proud to now put his cows to pasture on the land named for his great-greatgrandfather, John, one of the earliest settlers of Scott Township. “On the topographical map – I’m very proud of it – it says Sarnoski Hill. It goes all the way from East Benton all the way to the state park,” Sarnoski said. While he loves the work that has him up at 4:30 a.m. to tend to his 100 head of beef cattle, he admits it’s not always the most profitable. “My accountant says every year, ‘What are you doing this for?’ It’s because I like doing it,” he said. He shares that love with his two daughters – Lainie, 12, and Lexie, 10. “Lainie’s a real outdoors person,” Sarnoski said. “I think she’s the one that’s going

to be in charge of the farm. “I’m leaving the farm to the girls, and I tell them every day, ‘Don’t sell the farm.’ Once you sell it, it’s gone. The money will be gone, the farm will be gone, and then you’ll wish you had it back for the rest of your life.” Locally, farmland preservation programs are coordinated through the Lackawanna County Agricultural Land Preservation Program and administrator Ellie Hyde, 62, of North Abington Township. Since taking over the preservation program from prior director Bill Lange in 2003, Hyde estimates that she has doubled the amount of conserved areas in Lackawanna County to more than 4,000 acres. Hyde is currently working on applications for two other farm preservation grants – one each in Benton and Madison townships While the state program works to slow the loss of farmland to non-agricultural uses, it also helps those farms continue to operate and, in some cases, expand. Sarnoski used the money from the prior preservation of close to 80 acres in the early 2000s to buy

PRESERVED ACREAGE The following total acres have been preserved by the Lackawanna County Agricultural Land Preservation Program since 1994: Benton Twp., 1,240 acres. Greenfield Twp., 1,213 acres.

the 17 acres that were most recently preserved. At an appraised rate of $2,436 per acre, the new preservation brought more than $41,000 to Sarnoski Hill Farm. “It helps out a lot. A lot of farmers would have maybe lost their land, especially dairy farmers because the price of milk was so low,” he said. “The preservation had to help a great majority of those farmers. If not, it gave their farms enough money so they didn’t have to sell it.” For Sarnoski, it’s provided a land that’s now preserved from commercial development. Stevens said. As an alumni and former player for Abington Heights, Stevens said he felt obligated to fulfill the role of president because he has such a passion for football. “In more and more sports programs at the high school level –everybody does their part, and we’re only as successful as the people who get involved. I’m fortunate to have people who make my job easier. We’re out there working all year round so the boys can have a lifelong memory.” Stevens works for De Sales University in Center Valley, as an adjunct instructor in their MBA program and for Baker College Center of Graduate Studies, Flint, Mich. as an adjunct instructor in their undergrad business program. He serves as an associate faculty member of Ashford University, San Diego, Calif., where he teaches healthcare administration and psychology courses. He manages all of his positions from home and online. Stevens has been married 15 years to Kay, a nursing supervisor at Allied Skilled Nursing Center. They have two sons: Daniel, 15, a starting center and nose guard for the Abington Heights football team. William, 9, plays for the Abington Junior Comets.

Waiting to be heard New Visions to host Writers Showcase Nov. 12 By Joseph Croft Abington Journal Correspondent

A

full spectrum of writers will be on hand to read various selections at the inaugural Writers Showcase at New Visions Studio and Gallery, Scranton, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. Co-hosts Brian Fanelli and Jason Lucarelli are both hoping that the event will be a success. Fanelli, a published poet and seasoned reader, met Lucarelli at a workshop hosted by Fanelli at The Vintage Theater. Lucarelli, a graduate student at Vermont College of Fine Arts, was looking for feedback on his admissions essay. The two kept in contact and decided to organize a reading. For Lucarelli, this is his first public reading. “Part of the draft process is reading aloud,” he explained. “You get a better sense of what others think of your writing.” Fanelli, who has given readings throughout the tri-state area, agreed. “Readings are the bread and

butter in this business. You have to get used to readings, and people enjoy hearing fiction and poetry.” The showcase will feature a wide array of pieces, including short-story fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. “There will be something for everyone,” Fanelli said. “There’s such a mix – a lot of styles. Most of the writers are also seasoned readers.” Melanie Boisseau, co-owner and curator at New Visions, is also excited about the event. “I’ve wanted to do something like this for awhile. It was just a matter of time,” she explained. “I’m glad that we’ll be getting a new kind of crowd.” Fanelli described New Visions as the “perfect” location and knew he wanted to hold the event there. He added that the area has a “very vibrant art and literary community.” Lucarelli is also looking at the event as an opportunity to network with others in his

What a day! Last Wednesday, the Dietrich hosted a bus trip to New York City to see “Sister Act,” the musical, on Broadway. In my mind, the day was perfect! We had free time when we got to the city to shop, dine and sightsee. I know a couple of folks visited the 9/11 Memorial while there. A few of us from the Dietrich met with Jeffrey Jacobs, our theater’s film booker, for lunch. It was wonderful to see him. And when you talk with Jeffrey, it is obvious that Tunkhannock and the Dietrich hold a special place in his heart. His first concern when we met with him was to find out how our community was faring after the flood. He was shocked by the photos, but was also very encouraged by how members of our community have come together to help one another recover. We are very lucky to have Jeffrey. He puts an enormous amount of time and energy into booking the best blockbusters, and foreign and independent films out there for us. In fact, I know Hildy Morgan, our executive director, and he are cooking up ways to bring in even more of the films you want to see in 2012. Oops, I got sidetracked! Anyway, after lunch in New York, it was time for “Sister Act” at the Broadway Theatre. And let me tell you, the show was pure fun – full of sequins and disco music! The cast had us all on our feet by the end of the show. I was especially impressed and awed by the set design. So many talented people come together to make a show come to life. And we are lucky enough to have one of those talents from Broadway in our midst. Douglas Carter Beane, who lives part-time in our area, was nominated in 2011 for a Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical for his work on “Sister Act.” He has also written “Lysistrata Jones,” which will open on Broadway Dec.14. Exciting, right? Oh dear, I’m off topic again! After the show, all 30 of us went to Carmine’s for a family- style dinner. I tell you, it is my favorite Italian restaurant to dine at with a group. Their Penne alla Vodka dish is delicious. We would like to thank all of those who attended the trip. In fact, we received so much great feedback about the trip, we will be planning another trip in the Spring. Stay tuned for details – you won’t want to miss it. And speaking of live theat-

Drawing Social welcomes special guest artist

The Abington Community Library will host a variety of vendors with hand-crafted gift items for sale at the “Holiday Marketplace” this Saturday, Nov.12, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. They will display their unique gifts at tables throughout the library building, which will be decorated in a Victorian theme. In addition to shopping, those attending will be entertained by readings from Dickens and holiday classics of the past and with live music to be performed between 1 and 3 p.m. by violinist Mark Woodyat as part of the library’s “Second Saturdays” musical series. Currently on display are more than three dozen gift baskets filled with merchandise and gift cards from area businesses and individual sponsors. Chances are on sale at the Circulation Desk until Saturday when the raffle will take place. A bake sale and gift wrapping table will be featured as well, under the direction of the library’s Teen Leadership Committee. Youngsters will have the opportunity to shop for inexpensive gifts at their own “mini marketplace” in the Children’s Room. All proceeds from the “Holiday Marketplace” will benefit the library. Please note: The library will be closed on Friday, November 11, in observance of Veterans’ Day. New Books “The Whole-Brain Child,” by Daniel J. Siegel, M. D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. The authors, a neuropsychiatrist and a parenting expert, explain the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. They explain how to apply these discoveries to everyday parenting, using twelve key strategies that can turn any outburst, argument or fear into an opportunity to integrate a child’s right and left brain and foster vital growth. “My Life, Deleted,” by Scott Bolzan, Joan Bolzan and Caitlin Rother. In 2008, 46-year-old Scott Bolzan, a former NFL football player and a professional pilot, suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused a rare and permanent amnesia. In this book, he and his wife of twenty-seven years share their story of starting over. It is part medical mystery, part love story, and part inspirational memoir as the Bolzans contemplate what it is that defines a person, a marriage, and a family. “Ruhlman’s Twenty,” by Michael Ruhlman. Food journalist Ruhlman breaks down the keys to kitchen success in a fresh and unprecedented way, illustrating his twenty strategies with more than 100 recipes and 250 instructive color photographs. It is a book about fundamental techniques for today’s cooks, Ruhlman’s attempt to organize and describe the basics of cooking for the contemporary home kitchen.

nomic value. You can’t pay your rent or utility bills with before-tax dollars, so it’s important to understand what you’ll be left with after taxes before concluding you’re saving enough. Longevity risk and investment risk are other items the number approach does not consider. So to use the same example, you’ve reached your $300,000 number, but how do you know that a sufficient amount will be there 20 years later? If the assets decline to $200,000 in the next year, what does that mean for your future? Are there ways to manage these longevity and investment risks? By translating the number into an income stream, you can better see what a decline in asset value will mean to the longevity of your assets. The message here is that retirement planning should be done considering income needs. If you base it purely on accumulation, or reaching “your number,” you won’t adequately define your retirement planning goals or manage retirement planning risks. By choosing strategies that mitigate the risks of poor investment return or of outliving your assets, you will substantially reduce your plan’s risk of failure.

re, the Dietrich Children’s Theatre will perform this Friday and Saturday on the Dietrich stage. Join us for one of their three performances of “Why Mosquitoes Buzz in Peoples Ears” on Friday, Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 12 at 11 a.m. In this highenergy tale, an exaggerating little mosquito tells a fib to an iguana, who puts sticks in his ears to keep from hearing such nonsense. But this scares the snake, who frightens the rabbit, who startles the monkey…You’ll have to come out to find out what happens next. These shows are free and sponsored by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council. It’ll be great fun for the entire family. And remember to join us next Wednesday at the Tunkhannock Public Library for a book discussion on Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” at 7 p.m. It will be interesting to discuss the book before the film comes out this December. Admission is free. As you can see, the Dietrich is so much more than the movies!

Today’s challenging economic environment has forced many Americans to review their retirement planning goals with a more critical eye. While most core principles about retirement planning still hold true no matter the environment, a few may require some slight modifications. And given the turbulent times we’re facing, who couldn’t use a roadmap to help plan and execute a successful retirement strategy? When it comes to retirement planning, we all want to know what “the number” is: That magic dollar figures that, when reached, means you’re set in retirement. Sure, knowing your number—and reaching it—is good, but it’s only part of the equation. Mastering the accumulation phase without factoring in the distribution phase could render all your hard work saving toward your number moot. Instead, you should think about retirement in terms of income needs. The accumulation of, say, $300,000 is not meaningful for living in retirement unless you can translate that figure into a yearly or monthly income stream. You need to be able to pay your monthly food, rent and utility bills, as well as health-care expenses—and have enough left over to live the way you want to live in retirement. When you consider your retirement income needs, make sure you also factor in that some of your assets have a built-in tax liability. In other words, view your retirement assets with a “tax lens” on so you can see their true eco-

With the possibility of their season coming to end, the team members entered the second half knowing they had to put points on the board. “We knew we had to come back and be aggressive and be in that offensive mindset for the second half, and it just really worked out well. We were finding the open man and able to put the goals away,” said Elwell. During the second half, the open man ended up being Elwell, who scored two unanswered goals against Williamsport.

“I wanted to score myself personally, but also if I had the opportunity to give an assist to anybody, I would. I was just looking for a goal for anybody,” said Elwell. Elwell’s first goal came off an assist from Seth Pinches to put the Comets up 2-1 with 27:51 left in the game. “He drilled it…he was about 25 (yards) out and he just crushed it,” said head coach Steve Klingman. “He’s been tough all year.

DUNMORE- Lackawanna Trail High School had four different players score a touchdown and rushed for 363 yards as a team in its 35-7 victory over Holy Cross in a Lackawanna Football Conference Division III game at Monsignor J. Crotti Stadium Nov. 5. “We’re fortunate that we have five different backs that are quality kids,” Lackawanna Trail head coach Steve Jervis said. “We try to mix it up and throw when we want to, not when we need to. Pete Murazzi, who rushed for 29 yards on four carries, scored on a 4-yard run with 5:20 left in the first quarter to cap off a 10-play 73-yard drive. Murazzi’s extra point gave the Lions a 7-0 lead. Jeremy Greenley rushed for just five yards on four carries, but scored two touchdowns. His first score came on a 7yard run with 8:51 remaining in the second quarter to cap a 10-play 89-yard drive and give Trail a 14-0 advantage. Holy Cross advanced to the Lions’ 12-yard line on the next drive, but their threat was ended when the ball was snapped the head of Crusaders’ quarterback Rob Heyen’s head and recovered by Lions’ linebacker Josh Symuleski. “I wouldn’t say we totally shut them down by any means, See Lions , Page 2

Chiefs run over Western Wayne and into playoffs BY JOE BARESS Abington Journal Correspondent

LAKELAND-The Lakeland High School Chiefs forced six turnovers en route to a 30-20 win over Western Wayne Nov. 4. With the victory, Lakeland clinched the number four seed in the District 2 Class AA playoffs. “We knew we had to win this game for playoffs,” Lakeland running back Tyler Brady said. “We lost the last three weeks and we had to bring it together.” Brady tried to give the Chiefs an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter after J.J. Rojenches picked off Johnny Rhodes’ first pass of the game. With the ball inside the Western Wayne five-yard line, Lakeland handed the ball off to Brady three of the four plays, but the Chiefs came up empty and turned the ball over on downs. Despite the failed attempts, Brady didn’t let up and earned redemption on the ensuing play. After starting a drive on their own one-yard line, the Wildcats fumbled in the end zone and Brady jumped on the ball to give Lakeland a 7-0 lead. “I was pretty upset,” Brady said. “I had three opportunities on offense right on the one-yard line and I didn’t get it, and I was just fighting for it on defense.” After the touchdown, Western Wayne drove inside Lakeland’s 10yard line early in the second quarter and threatened to score. However, on the next play, the Chiefs recovered another Western Wayne fumble and halted the Wildcats’ drive. “In an evenly matched game, turnovers play a big part,” Lakeland coach Jeff Wasilchak said. “We’ve been on both ends of that spectrum and it was in our favor tonight.” Despite the turnover, Western Wayne fought back and forced the See Lakeland , Page 3

Unfortunately our team was on the losing end but I’m so proud of these kids for playing their hearts out,” Fazio said.

They take it upon themselves in terms of motivation and problem solving.” Chapman had a great chance to add to the Lady Comets lead with 8:00 left in the game, but Smith charged out and made a kick save. Despite the loss, Pottsville head coach Bob Stock was pleased with his team’s effort. “We had our opportunities, but just couldn’t capitalize on them. It didn’t go our way tonight. Abington (Heights) is a quality team. They’re undefeated. For us to come up here in a 2-1game, I think that’s great.” The win gives the Lady Comets’ their fourth straight district championship. “It feels awesome (to repeat),” Helcoski said. “I can’t even believe it. Our team is just so intense. We keep the intensity up and play as a big unit.” The Lady Comets were scheduled to host Strath Haven in a first-round state playoff game Nov. 8 at 5 p.m. at Scranton Memorial Stadium.
