Parents demand plan for gas emergency evacuation By SARAH HITE

Parents flooded the Dallas School Board meeting Monday ready to confront the lack of communication involving natural gas issues and the process for hiring a new football coach. The board also discussed high school security after one parent told how her son was beaten by another student and rendered unconscious in November while no one responded to the incident. Williams Field Services LLC recently completed work on the Springville Gathering Line located about 2,600 feet away from the Dallas School District campus. The line begins in Springville Township, Susquehanna County, and taps into the Transco interstate pipeline, which then sends natural gas to market. Williams delivered a letter to nearby residents, the Dallas School District and township officials last week about the completion of the Springville line, though many were displeased with the short notice. Helen Humphreys, senior communications specialist for Williams, said natural gas began flowing through to the Transco line Monday afternoon. During the meeting, resident Jane Tolomello repeated-

“You all can live with the lives of 3,000 children on your heads, but now it’s 2,999 - my daughter is no longer your responsibility. I will decide when she evacuates and how she evacuates.” Jane Tolomello Dallas School District resident

ly asked Superintendent Frank Galicki why parents weren’t notified about the expected work last week, as Galicki had received the letter before most residents. Galicki said at the time, emergency officials had deemed the work to not be a hazard to students. When word was received on Sunday about continuing work through Monday, Galicki said he immediately took steps to contact all parents within the district with the information. “You have to understand that we are not the enemy,” Galicki told Tolomello. “You think you want us to be the enemy.” Humphreys also announced that she and Williams safety expert Paul Madey would participate in a safety task force with board member Fred Parry, Dallas Township Emergency Management Coordinator Jack Dodson, Dallas Fire Chief Harry Vivian and Dallas Township Police Chief Robert Jolley. “When did this pipeline start - a year ago?” Tolomello yelled. “Why would you wait until today to bring Williams in (to a school board meeting)?” Evacuation plan Parents questioned the board about whether the district has an evacuation plan in place tailored to deal with nat-

ural gas issues. Galicki said a general plan is in place, but the safety task force will help to further develop the emergency response plan. He said the task force will continue to meet to disSee PLAN, Page 10

Chief Gathering LLC won an appeal to the Dallas Township Zoning Hearing Board Wednesday for the modification of one of the conditions the board stipulated when it approved the company’s application for a natural gas metering station last month. The company received approval Dec. 7 for the construction of a metering facility to be located off Hildebrandt Road about 1,300 feet from the Dallas School District. The facility would measure the quantity of gas flowing through a not-yet-built Chief gathering line that will tap into the Transco interstate pipeline. The condition Chief appealed, which was one of seven posed to the company’s project, involved the construction and maintenance of a 6-foot-high fence with barbed wire to be no less than 315 feet at all points surrounding the metering facility. The condition also stated if Chief could not build the fence, the company would need to design and construct a structure or mechanism that would “reduce the maximum potential impact radius for a large leak.” Jim Scott, senior vice president of the Dallas, Texas-based company, testified the construction of such a fence would interfere with nearby wetlands surrounding the property and abut neighboring property owners’ land as well as the Transco line right-of-way. He said Transco would not allow the construction of a fence

Scott told the board that, instead of fence construction, Chief will install a fast-acting automatic shutdown valve upstream from the metering station and a check valve to prevent the backflow of natural gas downstream from the facility.Resident Diane Dreier asked why these fast-acting valves weren’t part of the original plans for the facility, as parents have continuously demanded the utmost safety precautions for the site because of its proximity to the Dallas schools.

on its right-of-way due to safety concerns, but a 6-foot-high fence about 50 feet from all points surrounding the facility with barbed wire around the top would be constructed for safety reasons. Scott said the proposed 315foot perimeter fence would not add any element of safety to the site. Referring to testimony offered in previous hearings by explosives expert Ali Reza, Scott said building a fence would not reduce the impact of a large leak. He explained that because natural gas is lighter than air it would rise as it traveled outward. By the time the gas traveled 315 feet, it would rise to a minimum height of about 220 feet above ground. Scott said the flammability of the gas would also decrease by the time it rose to that level because natural gas needs to be at a certain concentration for it to combust with an ignition source. Zoning hearing board member Bob Bayer also said in rendering the decision and conditions, the board did not consider a graph Reza provided with the distance-height ratios that would result in a gas leak. Scott told the board that, in-

stead of fence construction, Chief will install a fast-acting automatic shutdown valve upstream from the metering station and a check valve to prevent the backflow of natural gas downstream from the facility. Resident Diane Dreier asked why these fast-acting valves weren’t part of the original plans for the facility, as parents have continuously demanded the utmost safety precautions for the site because of its proximity to the Dallas schools. Scott said the difference between valves could be just a few seconds, and he said now the company is working with the manufacturer of the valves to ensure the fastest available valves are part of the site. “We wouldn’t pick the slowest valves on purpose,” he said. Resident Wayne Dottor opposed Chief’s request, telling the zoning hearing board “not to back down and appease Chief.” He said Scott should have provided written documentation to show Transco would not allow the construction of a fence, rather than relying on verbal communication. “I can’t take their word for it. I have to take worst-case scenario See APPEAL, Page 10

Friendly’s has closed Friendly’s Restaurant, located at the intersection of routes 309 and 415, closed its doors on Sunday, Jan. 8 after 26 years in business and will not reopen. Maura Tobias, a Friendly’s spokesperson, attributes the closure to the Massachusetts-based company’s filing for Chapter 11 last October and its inability to negotiate lease rates with the landlord. With the closure, about 20 employees lost their jobs and several community organizations, including the Back Mountain Memorial Library and Dallas Rotary Club, lost an important fundraising outlet. “We regret that this decision has become necessary, and we appreciate the hard work and dedication of the Friendly’s employees and intend to accommo-

date as many as possible at nearby operating restaurants, where available,” said Tobias. The company’s Family Fun Nights, a fundraising technique in which a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds during a period of time would be donated to an organization, benefitted several local groups. “It was a fun thing because people came to eat there, and they often ran into people they knew,” said Martha Butler, director of the library. “Everyone was there for a common cause, which made for a nice camaraderie.” Dallas Borough Mayor Tim Carroll, who ate at the popular franchise about twice a week, said it’s difficult to see any business close its doors but expects the location to have another ten-

Holiday house winners honored GERI GIBBONS Dallas Post Correspondent

The board of supervisors presented gift certificates to the recipients of its annual Holiday House Contest at its regular meeting on Wednesday. Rick Connors, Bunker Hill Road, said he used over 18,000 lights to complete his holiday presentation. “My favorite part is watching people look at the lights,” said Connors, who plans to add an additional 10,000 lights to his display next year. “This goes beyond just being a holiday contest; it shows the spirit of our township,” said Assistant Township Manager Robert Hivish. Supervisors passed a Schedule of Fees which includea a $150 fee to register a permit to an event in compliance with the township’s Amusement and Exhibition Ordinance. Supervisor Frank Natitus asked if this fee could be waived for charitable organizations. Township Solicitor Benjamin Jones said that, because it is an administrative fee, it cannot be waived. However, Jones said, if an event is for a charitable organization and is community

based, the municipality can make a donation to that charity to assist with the fee payment. Township supervisors also voted to continue with a 5% contribution rate for township police toward their pension. “With the township having financial concerns,” said Supervisor Chair James Reino, “it is necessary to continue to collect this 5%.” Reino noted the township has also trimmed its budget by eliminating unnecessary expenditures, including some road work. The board voted to allow Anthracite Scenic Trails to place a kiosk on township property along the Back Mountain Trail, announcing upcoming events related to the trail. Jones said the easement the township had previously granted included the placement of the kiosk. The board encouraged residents to access information regarding township events, ordinances and services at its website at or by “friending” the township on Facebook. The next meeting of the Kingston Township Board of Supervisors will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 6.

Alyssa Monaghan, of Dallas, fends off her make-believe attacker with an elbow to the groin during a self-defense class for women at the Back Mountain Martial Arts Studio in Dallas.

May Goebel prepares to ward off her male attacker, played by Marty Kravchick,of Mountain Top, in a martial arts self-defense class for women at the Back Mountain Martial Arts Studio.


Jackie Soper, of Shavertown, demonstrates how fingers pushed into an attacker’s eyes can be effective. The make-believe attacker is Daniel Siblini, of Mountain Top.



Linda Cardany can’t be much more than five feet tall, though the 64-year-old from Dorrance recently learned she packs quite a punch. Cardany was one of a group of women (and men) in attendance at a self-defense class geared towards females at Back Mountain Martial Arts in Dallas Township. The class, led by local martial arts experts, stressed the importance of personal safety tactics – not martial arts technique. “We see a lot more people taking this class because everyone has busy lives and don’t have time to take traditional martial arts classes,” said Sensai Richard Dixon, of Mountain Top. He said the class was held about once a year but, due to high demand, is now instructed on a quarterly basis. Jackie Soper, a brown belt, has been practicing martial arts for more than 15 years and is an instructor at the studio. Her foray into the discipline stemmed from a desire to feel confident and prepared in any situation. “I never want to be afraid of anyone,” said Soper, of Shavertown. “If I get taken down, they’re not getting up.” Instructors focused on keeping cool and calm during a sticky situation. Being prepared for an attack can completely change the situation, as those who are attacked won’t feel panicked. “It can definitely save a life,” said Soper. Cardany wanted to take the class for a while because she wanted to fend for herself in trying times, despite her small stature. “I’ve managed to avoid those situations, but there’s so much

more meanness in the world than ever before, and you never know when it’s going to pop up,” she said. Dallas High School student Kelly Monaghan has been involved in martial arts for about a year. The 18-year-old from Dallas wanted to learn how to protect herself for when she goes away to college. “It’s really important to feel safe,” said Monaghan. “I hope I never have to use it, but the knowledge is there.” Dixon said the most important part of handling oneself during an attack is to “even the odds.” Knowing where and how to strike an attacker and using everyday objects such as water bottles and umbrellas are good strategies for survival. “With a 100-pound girl and a 250-pound man, there’s no such thing as a fair fight,” he said. “No one has a right to touch you.” When responding to an attack, Dixon said to focus energy

on the most vulnerable areas of the body, such as the eyes, groin, knees and toes, in order to demobilize the attacker. Once that has happened, Dixon told his students to get away from the situation as soon as possible and call for help. About 10 students practiced several moves during the class, including how to deal with attackers who may brandish dan-

It’s the person that’s dangerous.” Dixon also spoke about controlling one’s environment, such as wearing appropriate clothing, traveling with a group and avoiding alcohol, to defray potentially harmful situations. by Quinnipiac Professor Scott McLean. The students have been researching the presidential candidates since the fall. As part of their research, the students visited New Hampshire in October to campaign for their favorite candidates. They returned again for a weekend in November and again in early January to experience the days leading up to the January 10 New Hampshire primary.

Placemats on exhibit Library staff remembers and will miss Fred Krohle at Back Mtn. library To keep the Back Mountain Memorial Library running smoothly requires many skilled and talented people, including the board of directors, the librarian, the staff and, of course, the many volunteers who work behind the scenes whether by covering books, shelf-reading or by pitching in wherever needed. It is with a great sense of sadness that the library staff remembers one of the best (and busiest) of its board members, Fred Krohle, who passed away recently. Fred, as manager of the Slightly Read Bookshop, not only handled the daily operations of the Bookshop, he was also frequently found “back in

The Back Mountain Memorial Library is beginning the new year with a new and different type of exhibit on the library’s Art Wall - a collection of homemade holiday placemats designed and crafted by Phyllis Bullock, of Dallas. After visiting a friend’s home about 20 years ago, Bullock admired her unusual collection of placemats made by recycling Christmas, birthday and other holiday greeting cards. She immediately asked her friend to share the secret design with her and has been crafting the placemats ever since. “The cards are too pretty to throw out,” Bullock explained. Her collection of cards has now “grown” into a self-made filing system. “I sort them according to category i.e. snowmen, church scenes, angels, teddy bears, etc.,” she said. Then, she carefully cuts the cards into circular shapes ready to adhere to poster board. She has received many compliments on her placemats, but she humbly adds that “we also use them to eat off, too.”

YOUR SPACE Deno Pantelakos, of Idlewood Drive in Dallas, found this lonely leaf at Frances Slocum State Park covered with frost early one morning.

‘Beatles’ on display During the month of January, the Back Mountain Memorial Library will showcase “The Beatles” collection of Natalie Marshallick, of Dallas, who has collected Beatles memorabilia for the past eight years. “A friend at work bought me a book about the Beatles,” she said, and that’s how the collection began. Now besides receiving items from friends and family, Marshallick also buys pieces herself. Her collection includes albums, 45 records, pins, stamps and figurines. One of her favorite pieces is a set of the four band members in its original stage box. Marshallick likes to thinkher collection “captures a place in history that would be timeless for generations to come.” She and her three older sisters grew up listening to the Beatles and she hopes to pass along her collection to her daughter who has a passion for music. “I loved them then and still do….yeah, yeah, yeah!” said Marshallick.

MOMENTS IN TIME By Samantha Weaver • During this election season, it might be good to keep in mind the following sage observation, made beloved humorist Will Rogers: “The American people are generous and will forgive almost any weakness with the exception of stupidity.” • Mountain goats aren’t actually goats; they’re antelopes. • Those who study such things say that a mosquito flaps its wings 1,000 times every second. • If you’ve ever been to London - or if you’ve seen a movie that was set there - you might remember the iconic black taxicabs that are ubiquitous in that city; the high roofs set them apart from other vehicles on the streets. The headroom offered did once serve a purpose. When the cars were originally designed, top hats were still de rigueur for a properly dressed gentleman, and the high roofs allowed a man so attired to enter and leave the vehicle without knocking off his hat. • You might be surprised to learn that some ants can live more than 15 years. • Yes, there’s a name for it. The next time you’re opening a bottle of wine, take a moment to consider the spiral part that is inserted into the cork: It’s known as a worm. • Washington is the only U.S. state named for a president. • Celebrated 19th-century French poet Arthur Rimbaud wrote for only a few short years in his late teens. Despite critical success, he gave up writing when he was 20 years old and spent the rest of his life as a soldier and a merchant. • In medieval Japan, dentists removed patients’ teeth with their bare hands. ••• Thought for the day: “Television news is like a lightning flash. It makes a loud noise, lights up everything around it, leaves everything else in darkness and then is suddenly gone.” - Hodding Carter

Snow shovels stand ready and handy at the Lake-Lehman Junior/ Senior High School.

What’s with the WEATHER? M

other Nature has been teasing us, what with temperatures in the 40s and 50s during the month of January. She got serious this past week, though, bringing cold weather and even some snow showers to the higher elevations. The weather forecast calls for temperatures in the low to mid 20s this weekend with the thermometer expected to climb back into the 30s next week. Fluctuating temperatures like that leave Back Mountain residents confused as to how they should act. Is settling down inside with a good book the way to behave this month or is skateboarding more in line with the weather we’ve been experiencing?

Members of the Rotary Club of Dallas have rung the bells for the Salvation Army around the holidays for many years. This year, the kettle drive on Route 309 in Dallas brought in several hundred dollars, thanks in part, to a generous donation of $300 from J&J Deli, Route 415, Dallas. The funds came from management, employees and customer tips. More than two dozen Dallas Rotarians, spouses and friends volunteered to ring the bells for two days to help make the holidays a little brighter for the clients served by the Salvation Army.

PLAN Continued from Page 1

cuss emergencies related to natural gas activities. “It’s a floating plan,” he said. Tolomello said the board has been pressed on this issue for the last six months and a plan should be in place now as natural gas is flowing through the pipeline. “You all can live with the lives of 3,000 children on your heads, but now it’s 2,999 - my daughter is no longer your responsibility,” said Tolomello. “I will decide when she evacuates and how she evacuates.” Humphreys said Williams will provide assistance with education on the facilities, policies and regulations for the pipeline, but the district will be in charge of developing an evacuation plan on its own. While Galicki told residents input will be needed from the township emergency management officials, Dodson said the school district must also come up with a plan of its own before emergency responders can intervene. “We’ll give guidelines, but we can’t write your emergency plan,” he said. “It starts at the bottom. The faculty here has to be trained.” Parry also said the emergency plan involving gas issues needs time to be researched. “You can’t even think about buses, because buses will be emitting sparks,” he said. Resident Wendy Cominski suggested the board ask for a moratorium on all activities on the pipeline until the district can implement and practice an emergency evacuation plan. “Everyone here is dumping the responsibility on you,” she told the board. Another resident, Kerry Anne Daley, asked what the board will do when it can no longer depend on the information provided by Williams. Board President Catherine Wega said the board can only contact higher governing agencies on the local and state levels to address the issue. “I don’t know how far it goes,” she said. “I know you’re frustrated and we are, too.” Dodson said Dallas Township plans to develop an up-todate website that will notify residents about routine work on the pipeline, and the district will also be part of that notification process. Galicki said once the district is aware of routine work, parents will also be notified. Galicki also said if parents choose to pick up their children while work on the gas line is performed, those absences will be excused. Football coach Parents also addressed the board about its decision to open the position of head football coach, a position former coach Ted Jackson Sr. had held for 27 years.

DRIVING Continued from Page 1

Eighteen-year-old Chelsea English of Dallas said she’s usually tame in the car anyway, “unless there’s a good song on the radio.” Both women said they have become more aware of their driving habits since the early December crash involving Damon Szatkowski, a Dallas student, who was critically injured. “Every single time I leave the house, my mom says ‘Drive safely,’” said English. “Even if I’m just going a mile down the road, she says it.” Robert Jolley said the changes to the laws laws will be most effective when there is a crash, as young drivers will most likely be fined more once an investigation is conducted. He said the most important aspect of these new laws is prevention, and the Dallas Township Police Department plans to speak with new drivers within schools in order to spread awareness. Dallas student Jeremy Stair, 17, believes the new driving laws only put further restrictions on teens, which he feels isn’t fair.

Resident Wendy Cominski suggested the board ask for a moratorium on all activities on the pipeline until the district can implement and practice an emergency evacuation plan.

Student beaten Another parent, Karen Cooper, told the board about a situation involving her 14-yearold son, Sean. She said he was beaten by another student and was unconscious for 12 minutes at the high school before anyone noticed or called 911. Galicki confirmed the incident, but couldn’t provide any details because he wasn’t at the scene when it happened. Cooper said her son now has frequent migraines and emotional problems because of the incident. She said he heard the student who attacked him planned to bring a knife to school “and kill him,” and pleaded with the board to start using the brand-new metal detectors at the school and hire extra staff to man the area in which her son was assaulted. She said students stood idly by as her son was attacked, with some students even videotaping the incident. Galicki said the detectors will be in use by the second semester. He also said adjustments have been made to increase the number of hall monitors in that area. In other news, the board… • Accepted the resignation of Paula Alu, personal care assistant at Dallas Elementary, effective Nov. 14, 2011 and Jo-

dy Kiwak, Wycallis classroom aide, effective Jan. 13, 2012. • Approved a resolution to not raise taxes above the state determined Act 1 index of 2.1 percent for the 2012-13 school year. • Approved the following appointments: Ashley Baker as Wycallis classroom aide, Laura Marriggi as Wycallis classroom aide, Kimberly McGuire as Wycallis personal care assistant, Deborah Limongelli as Dallas Elementary personal care assistant, Zachary Tarbox as Wycallis instructional aide, Megan Martin as Dallas Elementary personal care assistant and Ericka Chung as Wycallis classroom aide. • Approved an endorsement for the Luzerne Intermediate Unit No. 18 to work with local municipalities for its gaming grant application to build the Plains Veteran Memorial Educational Opportunity Center. • Approved extensions of leaves of absence for the following teachers: Crystal Seidel until April 12 and Nicole Miller until June 15. • Appointed Diana BurnsSnyder as a long-term substitute teacher, replacing Seidel through April 12 with a salary of $45,189 and Kim Karavitch Leary as a long-term substitute teacher, replacing Miller through June 15 with a salary of $35,000. • Appointed the following high school coaches: Ken Kashatus as head boys baseball coach with a stipend of $3,695; Jim Casey as assistant baseball coach with a stipend of $2,373; Matthew Samuel as head track coach with a stipend of $3,695; Ed Radzinski and George Lazur as assistant track coaches with stipend of $2,373 each; Michael Labagh as head boys’ volleyball coach with a stipend of $2,045; Nick Diaco as assistant volleyball coach with a stipend of $664; Joe Pugliese as head tennis coach with a stipend of $2,217; Chris Scharff and Abe Lewis as girls’ soccer co-coaches with stipends of $3,033 each; Joyce Tinner as head softball coach with a stipend of $3,605; and John McNeil as assistant softball coach with a stipend of $2,373. • Appointed the following middle school coaches: Amy Rome as assistant-in-charge of track with a stipend of $2,373; Marjorie Adams as assistant track coach with a stipend of $1,989; Tony Chiarucci as assistant-in-charge of softball with a stipend of $2,373; Regan Palfey as assistant softball coach with a stipend of $1,989; Fred Weaver as assistant-incharge of baseball with a stipend of $1,989; and Chris Plaviak as assistant baseball coach with a stipend of $1,989. • The next Dallas School Board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13 in the administration building.

“I don’t think it’s right, but it’s not going to prevent kids from driving with more than one passenger,” said McCOACH Stair. “They’re still going to do it.” Stair has been more aware of his driving habits ever since he got a speeding ticket shortly after getting his driver’s license. “It’s always in the back of my mind now,” he said. “I don’t speed.” Michael McCoach, 17, of Harveys Lake, also knows the importance of driving safely – he got into a wreck in Lehman Township going 110 miles per hour not long after receiving his driver’s license. “I should have been dead,” he said. “I didn’t have any injuries at all.” McCoach thinks young drivers need those safeguards so they don’t have to learn from experience like he did. “Now I know better,” he said. “Now I always wear my seatbelt.” Lake-Lehman alum Dean Kreidler, 21, said he believes young drivers like to “show off” by driving unsafely, and he thinks the

new laws are a good idea to keep distractions at a minimum. “My girlfriend goes to Lake-Lehman and I wouldn’t KREIDLER want her to be in a car with some guy who’s just trying to impress everyone,” said Kreidler, of Hunlock Creek. Texting while driving will become illegal in March, and students admit they believe that is a major factor when it comes to distracted driving. Allie Jayne, 18, of Hunlock Creek, said she’s always safe in the car, and knows when to put down her cell phone. “I figure it’s more important to pay attention to where I’m going,” she said. Dana Jolley said she’ll have her friends text people for her when she’s behind the wheel – a practice she thinks is much safer while still responding to those who try to contact her. English tries to eliminate the temptation altogether. “I force myself to put my phone in the backseat,” she said. “Someone could be walking across the street while I’m texting and that’s it.”

Deb Roccograndi questioned why the board has not opened the in-school fitness facility for students to work out during off season. Galicki said the situation was brought to the board’s attention last week and the facility will be opened next Monday from 3 to 6 p.m. for all students. He said the field house weight room will not be open until a weightlifting coach could be hired. The board wouldn’t offer any details relating to Jackson’s departure from the position, as personnel issues are usually kept confidential. Jim Roccograndi said he felt the hiring panel would be biased, as it is comprised of a group of people who chose to open Jackson’s position. The hiring panel includes board members, Galicki, High School Principal Jeff Shaffer and Athletic Director Nancy Roberts. Don Artsma questioned Galicki about how much was spent on the advertising campaign for Jackson’s position. Business Manager Grant Palfey said about $6,500 was spent on legal advertising for the head football position. Galicki siad the position pays about $7,500. “And that’s at the taxpayers’ expense?” said Artsma. Galicki added that interviews will be held on Thursday and Saturday for the positions of head football coach and weightlifting coach.

The Noxen Volunteer Fire Company will hold a breakfast buffet from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today, Jan. 15 at the fire hall on Stull Road. Price is $7.50 for adults and $4 for children under 12 years of age.
