“Since my mom started it there have been six different presidents in the White House, the Berlin Wall fell, 9/11 happened, the Internet was invented, the list goes on. But none of that is reflected on the tablecloth. There are no snappy TV or movie catchphrases written on it, no political statements‌. â€? Lynne Palazzi on her mother Vivian’s nostalgic creation.

SAVE, a project undertaken in 1996 by Medical Society Alliances and Auxiliaries to help victims of domestic violence, stands for “Stop America’s Violence Everywhere.” In the hope of preventing violence-related tragedies, the American Medical Association launched it in 1995 as an extension of their Campaign against Family Violence. In Pennsylvania, it is an ongoing venture between the PA Medical Society and its Alliance with the Educational and Scientific Trust, the nonprofit affiliate of the PA Medical Society. They provided information kits to Pa. county Alliances/Auxiliaries. In Lackawanna County in 1996 there were already many organizations and resources available to victims of domestic violence, but finding the appropriate ones in a crisis situation was daunting. Therefore, a hotline card listing agencies was thought to be a great benefit to citizens. The cards designed are wallet-sized and can be carried in a wallet to be referred to in an emergency. The cards are placed in hospitals, libraries and agencies represented. The card is available in three languages: English, Spanish and Gujrati.

C.G. reviews budget

BY EMILY CULLEY Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS GREEN- The Nov. 14 meeting of the Clarks Green Borough Council concerned the budget for the upcoming year as well as changes in the Shade Tree Committee and future billing for the sewer. Council looked over the tentative budget that Melissa Jones, council secretary had prepared. The final budget will be voted on at next month’s meeting. Council also discussed the matter of Pennsylvania Water Company relinquishing the water billing for Clarks Green as of October 2012. Council began discussing other methods of billing residents, such as reverting back to the former method of billing, with bills coming from the borough. Council agreed to thoroughly research the matter before making a decision. Council discussed Ordinance 2-2011 concerning changing the Shade Tree Committee to a Shade Tree Commission. Solicitor Al Weinschenk explained that the main difference would be that as a commission, the group would be more independent of council for decisions. Council person Jill Shanrock expressed concern that with more authority, the Shade Tree Committee would be able to force residents to plant trees. Council President, Marie King assured her that, “We’ve never forced people to take trees and we never will.” Council also altered some terminology in the ordinance concerning technical terms for certain types of tree pruning. They voted to amend the ordnance to reflect the new terms, advertise the ordinance and to vote on it at the next meeting in December. Council also reminded residents to use the leaf bags for their leaves, rather then regular trash bags.

The decor at Williams’ Country Store is “country” with a homey and welcoming atmosphere in their newly renovated store. Customers are greeted with the aroma of the soup of the day simmering on the stove or pies baking in the oven. “How many country stores can you find in the area?” said Richard Williams. “The idea is if you walk into our store, except for our coolers, you step back into the 1800s…That’s what we strive for,” added Williams. The store is stocked with grocery necessities and also offers daily breakfast and lunch specials, homemade soups, sandwiches, hoagies and baked goods including pies. “All of our pies are baked here and sold at our store, as well as other locations such as Kutsop’s Market in Olyphant,

Duffy’s Coffee House in Clarks Summit and at some local restaurants. “At the store (in Ransom Township), we sell whole pies, as well as slices and pie squares,” said Richard Williams. In the near future, customers will also have an opportunity to order trays of prepared foods such as lasagna, in addition to a taste of Syrian and Lebanese cuisine with grape

leaves, Tabouleh and hummus, which Laurel Williams, whose heritage includes Syrian ancestry, plans to introduce to the menu. Seating is available for customers to enjoy take-out items.

DALTON - At the Dalton Borough Council meeting held November 10, President Bill Salva mentioned that their Department of Public Works got a new snow plow truck. “It had its maiden voyage by our October snowstorm,” said Salva. “They (DPW) are still in the leaf-picking process and are also repairing water drainage on Mile Street.” Later in the meeting, Salva read bids from local auto companies to see which one will receive the department’s old truck. The first bid he read was from Chris Colombo of Interstate Safety Service, Inc. from Clarks Summit. His bid was $6,152. The second bid was SULLI Motors from Ambridge, Pa. with a bid of $5,055. The next bid was from DeNaples Auto Parts from Dunmore. DeNaples’ bid was $3,600. The next bid was from Clarks Summit’s Brown Masonry, at $10,250. The final bid of $6,858 was from Grace Quality Used Cars, Inc. from Morrisville. Board member Lorraine Daniels made a motion to accept these bids. Board member Susan Davidson seconded the motion. The board all agreed. Board member Bill Montgomery made a motion to accept the highest bidder. The board agreed. “Brown Masonry has won the red truck,” said Salva. In other business, Salva mentioned that he received a rental agreement from the Dalton Fire Company. Daniels suggested tabling the motion to decide whether or not to keep the rental agreement with the Dalton Fire Company until the December meeting

Rees thinks the family atmosphere that is created during the event makes it a special scene.

“It’s a chance to bring families together,” she said. “We often see people who were raised in the area come back home. They look forward to it and remember when they were little kids and were making the ornaments.” The Dalton Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary will hold a craft fair Nov. 26. It’s an event that has coincided with the lighting ceremony for many years. “We always donate any leftover refreshments for their event,” Rees said.

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. At the Euro Café and Lounge located at 1121 Northern Blvd., customers will be greeted by pirates and shark heads. They will also find breakfast favorites such as the owners’ take on Eggs Benedict and a twist on French toast with their signature Apple Pie French Toast. In a décor that lends a Caribbean theme, new owners Samuel Moon, his wife, Brandy and her brother, Brandon Burdett intend to please customers with an atmosphere that has a distinctive flair. “We want to create a place with great food and atmosphere and be sure that when people come through the doors, they will feel completely comfortable,” said Samuel Moon, who has worked in the food service industry for 15 years. The café is scheduled to open in the coming weeks at the site of the former Euro Café. “We’re going to add our own flair,” said Moon. “My wife and I for a very long time have wanted to open a café. The atmosphere will make a unique atmosphere – warm and inviting. We want people to feel you can get a cup of gourmet coffee but you don’t have to watch your children every second of every minute. You won’t have to worry as much.” On the menu, the owners will offer specialty coffees, gourmet muffins and pastries, a breakfast menu with signature items, as well as a lunch and dinner menu with signature sandwiches and a variety of soups including lobster bisque. Moon said, “The problem is when I go out to eat, sometimes I feel I just ate 9,000 calories

and we want it (our food) to be health conscious. We want to use the top meats and breads, good condiments and foods… all geared toward a great experience. We don’t want to gear our foods to the calorie counters but the health conscious,” said Moon. He added, “My wife and I have always wanted to own a café style business. I’ve done a lot of traveling and I’ve experienced really good cups of coffee and I’d like to bring those to this area. Each and every item is going to have its own personality and be the best I might have experienced in Manhattan, in Florida or Washington, D.C…I want people to remember us for the quality and leave that lasting impression.” The owners plan a soft opening initially Dec. 1 with a scheduled Grand Opening later in the month. The Moons are the parents of five children and in Brandy Moon’s words, “It’s a nice family business. That’s what we are aiming for…We want you to come in here if you have a family.” Café hours will be Mon. to Sat., 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sun., 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Abington Heights Board limits tax increase BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT- The Abington Heights School Board approved a motion that will limit the amount the district can raise the property tax to 1.7 percent for the 2012-13 budget during its meeting Nov. 16. The 1.7 percent increase is the maximum amount the state index will allow the district to raise the property tax without sending the budget into referendum or requiring the district to apply for exception. If the board were interested in pursuing either of those options, the district would have needed a preliminary budget ready by January. By voting on the limit, the preliminary budget will not be needed at that time.

Superintendent Michael Mahon also explained that the approval of the motion was not a guarantee that taxes will go up 1.7 percent, it just sets a maximum amount the board can potentially raise taxes if it feel it is necessary. In other news, the board bid farewell to members Ken Heron and Robert Small, who will be stepping down from their positions. During his parting remarks to the board, Heron, who served on the school board for eight years, talked about his pride over the staff that has been assembled since he joined. “What we have tried to do during my tenure, and I’m sure you’ll continue to do it, is try to hire the best people,” said Her-

on. “The most rewarding part of this job is to see the talented teachers that come into our system.” Heron will be replaced by Michael Fleming, who was elected Nov. 8 to one of the two available at-large seats on the board. The other seat was won by incumbent Frank Santoriello. Fleming said he began attending board meetings a few months ago to prepare in case he won, and is looking forward to getting started. “I’ve got a lot to learn,” said Fleming. “There will be a bit of a learning curve, but hopefully I’ll be able to get up to speed quickly, and start contributing.” Small, who served on the

board for four years, said he joined the board originally out of a feeling of “fiscal responsibility.” After working with the board for some time, he knows that the current members share his concerns. “This board is true stewards of the taxpayers’ money, with many challenges, which are out of the control of the school board. Challenges like unfunded mandates handed down by both federal and state which handcuff school districts,” said Small. “This board takes on these challenges, and many others, with both educational outcome and fiscal responsibility in mind.” Small will be replaced on the board by Greg Madensky, who won the Region 3 seat.

The board also heard from Abington Heights High School student Chloe Maloney, who is putting on “Say No to Bullying & Yes to Love,” a talent show, at the Waverly Community House, located at 1115 North Abington Rd., Waverly, Dec. 9 from 7 - 9 p.m. The junior explained that she requested permission to promote the show with an announcement over the loud speaker during the school day, but was denied. She was told the reason she was denied was because she already had flyers hanging in the

school to promote the show. She asked the board to overturn the decision and let her make the announcement. The board said they were unwilling to overturn the decision, but offered Maloney several suggestions on how to promote the show. Admission for “Say No to Bullying & Say Yes to Love” is $5 for adults and $3 for students and children.

worst seasons, but everyone had a good time. We gave everybody an opportunity to play indoors – at least for most age groups, “ Rusak said. Rusak acknowledged the outdoor fields they utilize and help to maintain including the South Abington Township field and an arrangement the league has with Baptist Bible College. But, due to the cold and wet season this year, the league felt it appropriate to utilize the Riverfront Sports Complex in Scranton. “We thought it only fair to go indoors and give all the kids a chance to play,” Rusak added. Rusak said board members do a lot with other activities in the community. “I started off coaching, and my son played, and I volunteered and was slowly pulled into the league.” As far as her presidential goals, Rusak said, “There’s a lot that needs to be done, and I’m super excited. I’m a woman with young kids and can probably pull in other moms.” Rusak feels strongly about the sport. She said she loved playing it with her kids and with any-

Beautiful bazaar St. John’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Mayfield hosted its annual Country Christmas Bazaar at St. John’s Center from Nov. 11-13. The center had two floors of vendors selling gifts and treats for the holidays. St. John’s Bookstore sold matrushka dolls and Baba’s Basement sold a variety of items. Volunteers served Polish foods including pierogies and haluski and ran the St. John’s Chinese Auction, which sold raffle tickets for baskets.

body’s kids. In fact, she played in high school and in graduate school on the club team where she actually traveled. “I’m from Florida. The kids here don’t play as much as the kids down there,” Rusak said. She also said she’d like to see the children stay active year round to keep up their endurance. “It’s really important for kids to have fun,” Rusak enthused. Rusak has been part of the Abington Youth Soccer League for three years and just finished her first year as president. She thought their motto appropriate: “For almost 40 years, Abington Youth Soccer League has encouraged children to play soccer so they could learn about athletics, friendly competition, sportsmanship and exercise. We offer both recreational soccer and more competitive travel soccer. Starting with the U5 division your child will be taught the fundamentals of soccer, teamwork and sportsmanship. We strive to encourage all children to learn and have fun. Soccer is a wonderful sport for kids of all ages, and we encourage everyone to play.” She also used to coach a girls recreational team in Dunmore. Rusak worked as a bio-analyt-

ing this uncertain time, making us all proud to say we’re part of Lackawanna Trail.” Following Gregory’s leave, Rakauskas, high school Principal John Rushefski, Stoker and Curriculum Director Janice Joyce took over Gregory’s duties at the elementary center on a rotating basis. Rakauskas said he imagines the district will do something similar to help out Rushefski, who will be taking on some extra duties created at the high school due to the vacant assistant principal position. The superintendent explained the district plans to fill the position eventually, although probably not until the 2012-13 school year.

Linda Young served as Clarks Summit Centennial Committee Member/Fundraising Committee, Chair of the “Forever Young” Fishing Derby and Co-Chair of the Family Fun Day.

To be a part of the Clarks Summit Centennial Celebration was for the many volunteers who gave their time, a yearlong commitment. It was also a trip back in time and an opportunity to remember, renew friendships and revisit the past. Centennial committee members, Linda Young, Liana Smith and Phyllis Ruzbarsky share their most memorable moments from the Centennial. Linda Young – Clarks Summit Centennial Committee Member/Fundraising Committee, Chair of the “Forever Young” Fishing Derby and Co-Chair of the Family Fun Day. “Memories - there are so many. I was fondly reminded of Clarks Summit, its businesses and its citizens, when I was a kid growing up in the center of Clarks Summit in the 1950s and 60s. But I also enjoyed working with people I used to know, renewing old acquaintances and making new friends. Serving on the committee was personally well worth the time and effort.” She added, “My vision for Clarks Summit would include many more community events like the Art Walk and the Family Fun Day and Forever Young Kids’ Fishing Derby, as well as new events that will bring our community closer together. And I would love to see all empty stores occupied with business booming.” Liana Smith – Centennial Committee Member/ Responsible for ordering Centennial clothing and arranging their sale at all venues.

I worked on that with Dennis Martin…My favorite event was Centennial Day. It brought everything together. They (the committee) had something for kids and they had something for adults. They blocked off Depot St. and put the venue back there. It turned out to be a nice day because August was a mess (the weather) but Saturday, the day of the event, turned out to be beautiful. They had tents, tables and chairs and they had music all day long. They had food and merchant vendors, the racing cars for the kids, the historic memorabilia inside and outside of the borough building, horses from Marley’s Mission…so they had something for everyone…It was nice and relaxing fun day.

think it brought everything together. Even if you had missed everything (Centennial events), if you went that day, you could see what it was all about…Dennis Martin did a fabulous job and the people on the committee were very dedicated. It was a lot of work and he (Martin) needs to be applauded for all the work he did.” Regarding her vision for Clarks Summit, Ruzbarsky added, “One of the things I really liked was to see the enthusiasm of the people here. The merchants are really trying to keep this place going and to make it (Clarks Summit) a place of interest for everyone. They are really working hard. We tend to drive through Clarks Summit and not really stop enough to go through the vendors and the stores that are there. I think with all of the publicity you are giving everything, maybe people will stop a little more. We should keep it (Clarks Summit) vital and vibrant.” Summit Festival of Ice are strategically planned to help the Abingtons remain a destination point for local shops, restaurants, and family fun.”

then asked a friend visiting from Long Island, N.Y. to sign it and embroidered the signature into the fabric. From there, the project took off. The tablecloth is now filled with hundreds signatures, notes and doodles of old and new friends, each embroidered on as a special memory of that person and their visit to the Palazzi home. The story of this tradition, however, is no longer a secret tucked away along with the tablecloth, waiting to be unfolded for new guests to appreciate. Vivian’s daughter Lynne Palazzi, 43, a freelance writer and editor in Irvington, N.Y., traced the history of the project in an article which appears in the November 2011 issue of the Country Living magazine. “My mom has created this gorgeous, colorful thing, she’s put countless hours of painstaking work into it, there are so many rich stories attached to it, and she keeps it folded up in a handbag,” Lynne Palazzi said via e-mail. “I thought it was high time for the world to see it.” So, she said, she brought the story to Sarah Gray Miller, Editor-in-Chief at Country Living, who she had worked closely with at a previous job, and knew she could trust. “It’s such a personal story, I had to take it to someone who would take care of it and would keep me involved in the editing process,” Lynne said. “And that is what happened.” She said she knew the story would be a perfect fit for Country Living, as the magazine focuses on both crafting and entertaining. The telling of the story, however, didn’t stop there. It was picked up November 3 by www.tcpalm.com, a local news source in Vivian Palazzi’s current hometown, and Nov. 7 by the Huffington Post (www.huffingtonpost.com), an Internet newspaper. Vivian Palazzi said she is surprised at all the attention her tablecloth is getting, and when people ask her where the idea came from, she doesn’t know what to tell them. “I really don’t know where I

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already upon us. This year we have so much to be thankful for- from family to friends to an amazing community that can rise above anything. From all of us at the Dietrich, we would like to say thank you for your support over the past couple of months. You are tremendous. We hope you and yours will have time to relax and join us during the Thanksgiving holiday for some Hollywood fair and delicious popcorn. We have a great selection for you including “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” “Happy Feet Two,” “Arthur Christmas” and “The Muppets.” Last Thursday night it was great to see the theater completely filled for the midnight opening of “Breaking DawnPart 1,” our first sell-out since the flood. So many mothers and daughters attended the film together. It was wonderful to see their mutual excitement about a movie. And it looks like some of our other movies for the holiday can cross generations. I am really looking forward to catching “The Muppets.” I have great memories of “The Muppet Show” and can’t wait to see a new generation enjoy them. My favorite characters from the show were Statler and Waldorf. You know, those grouchy old gents who heckled everyone from their balcony seats. I imagine a lot of parents and children will come out of the movie comparing their favorite Muppet characters. In addition to fun films, the Dietrich will be offering a variety of holiday events for all ages over the next month. We will kickoff these offerings during Tunkhannock’s Christmas in Our Hometown. Join us for free showings of Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3 at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Created by Jim Henson, this favorite Christmas movie is about a poor otter family who risks everything for a chance to win the cash prize of a talent contest for Christmas. This movie is presented in-part by the Jim Henson Legacy Foundation and sponsored by Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation. Admission is free. We will also be hosting a Homemade Cookie Walk to Benefit the Dietrich Theater during Christmas in Our Hometown. For $5 you will be able to fill a container of various Christmas cookies that you select. Not only will you walk away with a delicious treat, but you will be supporting the Dietrich and

LIBRARY NEWS

BY MARY ANN MCGRATH

With the celebration of Thanksgiving coming to a close, preparations for the December holidays will begin in earnest. Stop at the Abington Community Library for books that help with ideas for holiday gift-giving, meals and family celebrations. One of the newest additions for the Christmas holiday that is new on the shelf is “Christmas with Southern Living 2011.” The editors have divided the book’s contents into four parts. In “Entertain,” there are 100 kitchen-tested recipes and complete menus for a Dixie brunch, a portable cold-weather picnic, and a vintage Southern holiday. In “Decorate,” there is inspiration for using flea market finds, on decorating mantels and 12 ways to make homes festive. “Savor” is a recipe collection for cocktail parties, unique entrees, bitesize desserts, pancake breakfasts, and slow cooker surprises. The final section, “Share,” includes instructions, with pictures, for ten homespun crafts as well as how to prepare handcrafted confections, with ideas for festive and unusual packaging. New Additions “The Ballad of Tom Dooley,” by Sharyn McCrumb. The famous folk ballad, a haunting tale of murder and illicit love, is based on actual events that took place in Wilkes County, North Carolina in the aftermath of the Civil War. Novelist McCrumb visited the actual sites, studied the legal evidence, and concluded that the traditional story did not make sense, eventually uncovering a missing piece of the story. In her newest “Ballad Novel,” she presents a fictional re-telling of the historical account and identifies the real culprit in the murder of young Laura Foster. “Snow in Summer,” by Jane Yolen. Here is a new version of the Snow White tale for young readers (age 9 – 12). Summer’s life in the West Virginia mountains turns from a fairy tale into a nightmare when her widowed father marries a woman who brings poisons and a magical world into the young girl’s life. Set during the early 20th century, the tale is filled with magic, intrigue and true love. “Assassin of Secrets,” by Q. R. Markham. Jonathan Chase is the CIA’s top field agent. His new target: the Zero Directorate, rogue assassins who have embarked on a campaign to systematically interrogate and kill seasoned secret agents across the globe. To do so, they have set an elaborate trap endangering Chase, who must risk his most valuable asset to defeat them. “Wonderstruck,” by Brian Selznick. Young readers (age 9 – 12 ) will embark on an awe-inspiring journey in this new book by the author of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” Two independent stories, set 50 years apart, weave back and forth. Ben’s story is told in words, Rose’s in pictures, as the two children set out alone on their separate desperate quests to find what they are missing: Ben longs for the father he has never known and Rose dreams of a mysterious actress. Closed for the Holidays The library will be closed Thursday, Nov. 24 in observance of thanksgiving. Upcoming Events The library will host a Knitting group on Monday, Nov. 28 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. Those who attend are encouraged to bring the current project and knit with others. Adults The Teen Leadership Committee will meet on Tuesday, Nov. 29 from 4 - 5 p.m. The committee is a group of teens focused on giving a voice to all young adults for programming, book selections, etc. Students in grades seven to 12 are invited to come and share their thoughts and ideas. The Abington Community Library is located at 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit. Visit our website, www.lclshome.org/abington to register online for events or call the library at 570.587.3440.

The theater company was the first in the area to stage the play, and audiences came out in droves to see the production based on the 1954 film. “We were completely sold out,” said director Debbie Zehner. “It was probably the best selling show we’ve had in the last 10 years. It was sold out before we opened. There were waiting lists every night.” Traditionally, the Music Box rotates its Christmas show year to year, but due to the amount of attention and positive feedback “White Christmas” received, they decided to make an exception and bring the show back again this season. “It was decided immediately after,” said Zehner. “I had friends who I couldn’t get tickets for. So we thought since it was so popular we’d do it again, and give anyone who didn’t get a chance to see it an opportunity.” Adapted for the stage by Dave Ives and Paul Blake, Zehner had seen the play when it was on Broadway and recommended the Music Box stage it last year when the rights became available. She said the piece stays fairly close to the source material, telling the story of World War II veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Da-

To help out, the boys gather all of their army buddies to come to the inn. “They took a few liberties, but it pretty much follows the movie,” said Zehner. One of the liberties Ives and Blake took was changing the age of the character Susan from a teenager, to a child. The change created the challenge for Zehner to try and find a young actress who was up to the task of playing a part that large. Like last year, that actress turned out to be Wyoming resident Abigail Barhight.

production this year, giving the show what Zehner described as a nice mix of new and old performers. Despite playing the role last year, Barhight still had to audition for the part this year. “She had to audition against some other little girls, but they couldn’t hold a candle to her,” said Zehner. “I didn’t know her last year. She auditioned with, I think, 20 other girls and took it away from everyone. She sings, she’s a wonderful little actress, and a delightful kid to work with. She’s a talented little girl, a real standout.” In addition to the age of Susan, another change is one Zehner feels audiences will enjoy, and that’s the addition of several Irving Berlin songs not featured in the film. She said the addition of the songs adds to the holiday feel she feels the show gives off. “It’s really a lovely play that should make you feel good,” said Zehner. Zehner added that, like last year, tickets are selling fast, and those wishing to attend should make reservations soon. The Music Box Dinner Playhouse is located at 196 Hughes St, Swoyersville. “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” will run Nov 26, 27, Dec 1 - 4, 8 - 11 and 15 - 18.

Why is Northeastern Pennsylvania a breeding ground for scandal? A local author has an answer, and it lies in the region’s history of immigrants and coal-mining. Kenny Luck, author of “NEPATIZED: Behind the People and Controversies that Define Us” (Avventura Press, 2011) and “Thumbing Through Thoreau” (Tribute Books, 2010), will give a lecture, Journey to Environmentalism, Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Lackawanna College Environmental Institute, Rt. 435, Moscow. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $5. Luck will broaden the view of environmentalism in his presentation by discussing the impact of drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale region. His next book, “Marcellus Shale Ale: How the Natural Gas Industry is Destroying our Environment, Communities and Democracy,” will be published by Avventura Press early next year and is the first book to explore the issue. Luck is an author from Scranton. A graduate of Marywood University, he has written for local publications such as The Weekender and Go Lackawanna. Those interested in attending are asked to pre-register by calling 570.842.1506.

Royals look to repeat

High octane play awaits Keystone opponents

BY ANDY DAVIS Abington Journal Correspondent

SCRANTON- The University of Scranton basketball team has been picked to finish first in their conference this year and defend the team’s conference championship earned last year. If while attending a basketball game this year familiar faces seem to be on the court it’s for good reason. Tim Lavelle, Ross Danzig and Justin Klingman are three players on the men’s team from the Danzig Abington area. Lavelle, a junior, is a Scranton Preparatory High School graduate, while Danzig, a transfer freshman and Klingman, a freshman, both graduated from Abington Heights High Klingman School. The trio has known one another for many years and their coach, Carl Danzig, feels as though that gives them an advantage on the court. “It’s really fun to watch them on the court together Lavelle and notice that they are clearly seeing what the other person is seeing,” Danzig said. Danzig noted that although the trio has past experience together, it doesn’t keep them from working hard in practice. “I think all three of them are really great kids. They played over the summer together to get ready for the season and in practice it’s obvious that all of them want to be successful. I think Tim (Lavelle) having a strong finish to last season has given him some good momentum coming into this year,” Danzig said. Ross Danzig, a freshman this year and also the coach’s son, is happy to be playing at home with people with whom he’s See Royals, Page 2

A sophomore at Scranton Prep who is barely old enough to drive on public roads, Clarks Summit resident Jerry Tunney has been making waves on the motor racing scene, both locally and nationally. After spending much of his career racing on dirt tracks, including at Five Mile Point Speedway in New York, Tunney made the jump to racing on asphalt in 2011.

Local speed Tunney hits the track with C.S. pride CLARKS SUMMIT- For every championship racing driver who flashes across a computer or TV screen, a humble start at local tracks was the precursor to greatness. From traveling to and from races each weekend, to learning the basics of everything from mechanical setup, to promotion and sponsor relations, the life a young race car driver is busy and demanding. But for those who stick with it, the ladder of career opportunities is there for the climbing. And in the case of Clarks Summit resident Jerry Tunney, climbing the ladder- all the way to NASCAR, perhaps- is exactly the plan for the future. A sophomore at Scranton Prep who is barely old enough to drive on public roads, Tunney has been making waves on the motor racing scene, both locally and nationally. After spending much of his career racing on dirt tracks, including at Five Mile Point Speedway in New York, Tunney made the jump to racing on asphalt in 2011.

Last season the Keystone College men’s basketball team (21-6) tallied their highest win total since the 2005-2006 campaign when the Giants reeled off 22 victories. The Giants of La Plume turned in a conference mark of 13-5, while also winning six of their final seven regular season games, securing the third seed in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) playoffs. After making easy work of Immaculata University in the quarterfinal round, the Giants found themselves in the conference semi-finals for the third straight season and for the third straight season Keystone had its year come to an abrupt halt in the round of four. Fast forward to the start of the 20112012 season. Last season was a memory as the Giants entered this year with a new top man on the bench, as Nevada Smith began his first season as head coach, following the departure of Jason Leone in August. The team also welcomed back 53 ppg from a squad that averaged just over 71 points an outing. Expectations are not only high within See Keystone, Page 2

not sound like much, but it was a great highlight to a season that was my first competing on asphalt, against many drivers with more experience and more resources than I had coming into the year. While his on-track progress has been solid, Tunney said he has grown and developed the most from his attendance through a scholarship at Race 101, a North Carolina-based school for young racing drivers. Over the course of COURTESY PHOTO two extended weekends last winWhile he is done racing for the 2011 ter, Tunney was able to learn from calendar year, Tunney is busy putting the pros about many different plans together for next season.

Youth movement forms team’s foundation Some may classify this year’s Keystone College women’s basketball team as a rebuilding project; while others may term it a complete overhaul. Whatever phrase is used, one thing is certain; this is a brand new era for women’s basketball at the College. The coaching staff is eagerly looking forward to the start of the season, stressing that the added depth and competition at each position will make for a very competitive team. “With more athleticism than in previous years, this squad is a great foundation for the future of Keystone Women’s’ Basketball. As a program we are looking forward to building around these young & energetic players,” said head coach Katie Tetzlaw. “With 12 new faces, two solid returners and a new system, we are really excited about this year’s season.” Because of the youth movement with this year’s team, other programs within the conference may be looking past the Giants.

Youth finds soccer success BY ANDY DAVIS Abington Journal Correspondent

CLARKS SUMMIT-When Colin McIntyre, 12, was on his way to his way to try out for the ultra-competitive Lehigh Valley United U-12 boys’ soccer team, he was filled with nerves. His coach for his regular soccer team in the Abingtons had mentioned that there would be tryouts for this travel team coming up for any player who was interested and Colin was ready. “I remember he told our entire team that we could go and try out for this team if we wanted to but it wasn’t going to be easy. I was definitely nervous…there were a lot of good players there,” the North Abington Township resident said. His father, Gary McIntyre, recalled the coach telling him that his son would be a good candidate to make the team. “I remember he just told us that Colin would be a good person from their team to go and try out, but we didn’t really know what to expect,” Gary McIntyre said. Colin, 11, although anxious, earned a spot on the team that would lead him to the biggest victory of his young life. This fall, in the Columbus Cup, a soccer tournament Columbus Day weekend in Yardley, teams from across the country gathered to compete in the event. The two top-ranked teams in the nation, both from Maryland, were participants in the tournament and it didn’t take long before Colin and his team found themselves up against the top- ranked team in the nationthe Baltimore Bays Chelsea Football Club. Gary McIntyre was quick to admit he wasn’t too confident in a positive outcome for his son’s team in the game.“Too be honest, I didn’t think we had a chance. Of course I wanted Colin’s team to win, but it didn’t look good at the time,” he said. The Lehigh Valley United soccer team was able to pull off an amazing upset with a 1-0 win to eliminate the top- ranked team in the tournament. “I was really happy. The entire team was excited and it was just a great feeling in general…definitely the biggest highlight of my soccer career,” Colin said. Although the team fell in the semi-finals to the eventual tournament champions who are now the top- ranked team in the nation, the Fewster Football Club, Gary McIntyre sensed a new feeling among the players. “They gained a lot of confidence in that win. They’re ranked 14th in the nation now and they don’t back down from anyone they play,” McIntyre said. He was also quick to point out how proud he was of his son’s accomplishments. “It’s not easy traveling for practice two days a week plus a game. Sometimes he has to sacrifice some of his other sports games or practices but he does it. He’s a very hard worker and especially in school. He deserved it,” McIntyre said.

But it also made me realize how great of an opportunity I have to play in the area where I grew up, have my dad as my coach and play with some people I’ve known my whole life,” Danzig said. Klingman felt as though his relationship with Danzig and Lavelle helped his transition to college basketball this year. “Well I played with Ross in high school and knew Tim, so it was really good being able to

ask them questions as the season was beginning. Coach puts in the plays right away and we need to learn them fast, so having that comfort level as a freshman that you can talk to someone who knows what is going on is valuable,” Klingman said. Coach Danzig’s outlook on the season is a positive one. He noted that this year’s team is probably one of his most exciting teams to watch from an athletic standpoint as they look to defend their conference championship this year. When asked how it feels to now have his son help him defend their championship this season and play for him for another three years, Danzig grinned and responded:

“I’m excited to be able to coach and see him every day. Not many parents get to do that when their kids are at college and we have a great relationship…hopefully my answer is the same in four years.”

The University of Scranton will induct the seven newest members into the Athletics Department’s Wall of Fame Dec. 3. The ceremony will take place in the Long Center between games of a basketball doubleheader against Moravian College at 3:30 p.m. The Class of 2011 includes women’s soccer all-American Nicole Bayman ’01; four-time women’s soccer all-regional selection Amy (Connolly) Fabel ’01; two-time men’s cross-country all-American Joseph Fent ’01; women’s swimming allAmerican Sarah (Gazdalski) DalFol ’01; three-time women’s basketball all-American Kelly (Halpin) Fisher ’01; John Kelly ’ 79, who has served as the official clock operator for basketball games at the Long Center for nearly 40 years; and Carlos Loureiro ’83, a member of three NCAA Final Four men’s soccer teams. The Wall of Fame was founded in 1970 to honor former student-athletes, coaches, administrators and those in the community who have been instrumental in the overall development of The University of Scranton’s athletics program. This year’s class brings the Wall’s membership to 219. Bayman, a native of Long Valley, N.J., and a graduate of West Morris High School, excelled on the soccer field and in the classroom during her career. In addition to earning secondteam all-America honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) in 2000, she was named first-team Academic all-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and was awarded a prestigious postgraduate scholarship by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in 2001. She is currently one of 15 former Scranton student-athletes to garner this honor. Bayman is currently an attorney with the law firm of Drinker Biddle & Reath, LLP, in Princeton, N.J. Fabel, a native of Cherry Hill, N.J., and graduate of Camden Catholic High School, joined Bayman to form one of the most prolific scoring tandems in Royals women’s soccer history. She led the team in scoring three times and finished with 59 goals and 32 assists for 150 total points-still the third-highest point total in Scranton history. Fabel resides in Collegeville, with her husband Michael. Fent, a native of nearby Dalton, and graduate of the Scranton Preparatory School, was the first to do many things during his standout career. He is the first three-time national qualifier and four-time all-NCAA Mideast regional selection in Royals’ history; the first and only all-American in the pro-

gram’s history; and the first of two runners since 1980 to win four consecutive Middle Atlantic Conference individual championships. He also captured nine invitational titles during his career. Fent is currently a veterinarian with Smithfield Premium Genetics in North Carolina. He resides in Raleigh. DalFol was a dominating presence in the pool . She is one of only three Scranton swimmers to qualify for nationals and joins Wall of Fame inductee Marilyn Bogusch as the only swimmers in the program’s history to earn all-America honors- earning that distinction with her performance in the 200-yard backstroke at the 1999 NCAA championships. She qualified again for nationals in 2001, competing in three events: the 100 butterfly and the 100 and 200 backstroke. DalFol and her husband, Alex, reside in Sparta, N.J. Fisher added another chapter to the Lady Royals’ tradition of excellence in women’s basketball. She led the program to a four-year overall record of 10320 (.837) that included two Middle Atlantic Conference overall titles (1997, 1999), two Freedom League/Freedom Conference titles (1998, 2000) and four NCAA tournament berths, including three Final Four appearances (1997, 1999, 2000) under current head coach Mike Strong. Fisher and her husband, Jason, a former standout on the Royals’ men’s basketball team and 2009 Wall of Fame inductee, now reside in Langhorne, with their three children. Kelly has never lost his passion for his alma mater, which continues today in his role as part of basketball game operations at the Long Center, a position he has held since 1973. He was recognized for his commitment to the university’s athletics program by receiving the Reverend Paul R. Beining, S.J., Award in 2004 and the university also named a men’s basketball tournament in his honor in 2002. Kelly, and his wife, Mary Ann, are the parents of three University of Scranton graduates: Joseph ’05, Kaitlin Ann ’07, and Sarah Ann ’09. Loureiro, a native of Westwood, N.J., and graduate of Westwood High School, was a key member of the men’s soccer program that developed into a power under then head coach and current associate athletics director Steve Klingman. He finished his career with 41 goals, 31 assists and 113 total points to etch his name among the Royals’ all-time leaders. Loureiro is currently third in assists and seventh in goals and total points in the program’s history.

She brought in raw ingredients, a semi-finished product and then the completed cooked version for the class to try. She spoke about her Middle Eastern heritage and some of the other foods from that area. After a few minutes of uncertainty, the students tried the finished product and were delighted. Many had more than one serving. Some of the boys actually had seven or eight. Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher Diane Schumacher said, “The class was extremely successful. I am encouraging the rest of the class to speak to parents or grandparents about similar demonstrations.” Shown, left: Diane Schumacher (Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher), Nadeen Jafar (8th grade student), and Nadia Jafar (her mother).

BBC hoops to tip off Keystone names distinguished scholars

Baptist Bible College men’s and women’s basketball teams began the 2011-2012 season in mid-November, with many key returning starters for the Lady Defenders and new players assuming key roles on the Defenders squad. Men’s Coach Mike Show enters his 18th season at the college. Women’s Coach Amber Jacobs, a former WNBA player with deep connections to the college, enters her second.

Lady Defenders aiming high Jacobs is excited about her team and the potential that exists. All four players that averaged double digits in scoring are back for the 2011-2012 campaign. The team, at 15-11, finished fifth in the Colonial States Athletic Conference last season and lost in the first round of the playoffs. The Lady Defenders will have almost the same starting five as a year ago. Last year’s CSAC Freshman of the Year, Kacee Rava, is ready for a new season. Averaging 16.4 points a game and 11.2 rebounds, she worked hard over the summer and is ready for her sophomore year. Guard Ruthie Butts, who led the team in scoring (17.1 ppg) as a freshman has also worked hard to refine her shot to propel her toward being one of the top shooters in the league. Captains Kelly Bargfeldt (12 ppg) and Jessica White (10.3 ppg, 9 rpg) look to lead the team with their experience and leadership. The sixth man from a season ago and current tri-captain Kellie Bernard looks to continue in that role. Another player looking to bring high energy and work ethic is Melanie Williams. After taking a few years off, Williams returns as if she hasn’t missed a beat. She will look to provide stability off the bench at both guard and forward. Newcomers looking to make an impact this year are ChAmeera Boggs, Lexi Thomas, and Alyssa Cole. Thomas, a transfer, is starting the year off injured, but once healthy will be looked at to give valuable minutes. Freshman Boggs is one of those players who just loves to play the game. Once she makes the adjustment from high school basketball to

Baptist Bible College Men’s Team

college basketball, she has the potential to add some flair to the already stacked lineup for the Lady Defenders. In the pre-season polls that are voted on by the CSAC coaches, BBC is picked to finish in 6th place. Coach Jacobs is joined by assistant coaches Deanna Parker and Amber Severance. The season started with a 61-35 win vs. PSU - Wilkes-Barre Nov.15.

Men’s team looking to build Coach Show has a challenging season ahead. With the loss of nine players, most of whom contributed heavily last season, the young team has to find their identity and quickly learn what is expected of them. Key returners are Luke Peterson, Stephen Howard, Christian Attlesey and Jordan Greve. Peterson earned a starting spot at the end of the season as his offense took off. He averaged 10.9 points per game 3.8 rebounds per game. His shooting ability has improved over the season and he seems to have a knack for scoring. In his final season, Howard, who is the team captain, will lead the team with his experience and hustle on the floor. He led the team in steals last season with 22. Another senior, Attlesey, will be the veteran of the big men. Greve has the potential to be a big threat for the Defenders. Junior Kyle Pannebaker will be called on to play a much bigger role this year. Only averaging 5.5 minutes a game last season, he worked hard on his shot this summer and will look to contribute in that area. Dan Dodd has a lot of potential in the post. Freshman Nate Wiersma is expected to have an instant impact on the team with athletic play in the post and on defense. Other freshmen that may have an impact include Brandon Maxwell and Shane Hippli. In the pre-season poll, the Defenders are picked to finish ninth in the CSAC.Coach Show is joined by veteran assistant coaches Dwight Peterson, Joel Nietz and Jon Konzelman. The season started with an 80-59 loss to Cazenovia College Nov. 15.Get more details and watch games at www.bbcdefenders.com.
