DAMA recycling is huge success By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Due to overwhelming volumes, the Dallas Area Municipal Authority has increased it recycling collection to every week as of Feb. 20. Larry Spaciano, executive director of DAMA, attributes the increase in recycling collection to the authority’s new single stream recycling program. Customers no longer have to separate materials like plastic, glass and cardboard, making recycling easier than ever. “We’ve collected about 15 more tons this January compared to last January,” said Spaciano. Spaciano said the increased recycling collection will also encourage customers to recycle more often because of the quick turnaround. “…It was more difficult for them to take out that much recycling to the curb at one time,” he said. “We looked at it overall and said it’s probably going to be more cost-effective for us and a lot easier for the residents if we do it on a weekly basis.” Spaciano said recycling isn’t just good for the environment – it’s also going to save DAMA customers money in the long run. “We have an agreement; we take it down to Northeast Recycling Services and then, depending on the market, they’ll pay us a certain amount for the recycling,” he said. “The bottom line is we never have to pay to get rid of it, even if the bottom of the recycling market drops out. It doesn’t cost us anything to get rid of it, so it’s a win-win for us.” Before DAMA took on its own solid waste and recycling collection, whatever recyclable materials collected were the property of the hauler, Spaciano said. Therefore, when companies took the materials to the recycling center, whatever money they received for the materials was theirs to keep. Now DAMA is reaping the benefits of its own program. The authority received its first check in January for about $3,600 – all of which will go back into the program and eventually save customers money. Spaciano said, hopefully, the amounts of those checks will increase due to the more frequent recycling collection. Bill Feher, DAMA’s solid waste supervisor, hopes to increase the recycling opportunities for residents, including providing outlets for recycling elec-

tronics and tires. He also said the return on the program will allow DAMA to stabilize its rates. Spaciano said, despite the increased collection, there won’t be additional costs for manpower or vehicles because the crews are out collecting garbage every day anyway. “It will even itself out,” he said. Spaciano said convenience and the way the program is designed has encouraged customers to increase their recycling habits which, in turn, benefits the entire Back Mountain. He hopes the program will continue with an educational aspect to promote recycling throughout the community. SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING With DAMA’s new program, customers can mix recyclable materials in the same bin. Here’s a list of what you can and cannot recycle. These are OK to recycle: 1-7 plastics, aluminum cans, aluminum foil, cardboard, cereal boxes, color paper, detergent bottles, empty aerosol cans, envelopes (window OK), egg cartons, file folders, glass jars and bottles, hard and soft cover books, juice and milk cartons, junk mail, newspapers and inserts, magazines and brochures, multi 3-ply paper, white paper, paperboard boxes, phonebooks and catalogs, plastic milk jugs, plastic soda bottles, pots and pans, school papers, small metals, tin cans and water bottles. These are NOT OK to recycle: drinking glasses; frozen food, ice cream or frozen juice containers; hazardous or biohazardous waste; light bulbs, plates or vases; mirrors, ceramics or Pyrex; napkins; needles; paper to-go containers; paper towels; plastic 6-pack holders; plastic microwave trays; plastics other than those listed; scrap metal; shredded paper; stickers or sheets of address labels; Styrofoam; syringes; tissues; Tyvek envelopes; waxed paper; waxed cardboard; and window glass. For more information about recycling, contact DAMA at 696-1134.

FRIENDLY RIVALRY

Black Knights swim team considers Dallas Middle School Natatorium its home pool. By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

The rivalry between the Dallas and Lake-Lehman high school swimming and diving teams is a little friendlier than one might think. The Lake-Lehman team, which started competing in the Wyoming Valley Conference in 2007, entered into an agreement with Dallas this year to utilize its pool for home meets. The team practices at Misericordia University’s Anderson Sports and Health Complex. Nancy Edkins, coach of the Lake-Lehman swim, said the team previously held all of its swim meets and practices at Misericordia University, but due to the lack of diving facilities, there

was no diving team. The Dallas pool, which is located in the middle school, is a larger facility equipped with several diving boards. Erin Cooper Yurko was hired late last year to coach Lake-Lehman divers. The Black Knights compete at Dallas when the Mountaineer swimmers and divers are at an away meet. Lake-Lehman divers always train at the Dallas facility. Edkins, who is also principal of Lake-Noxen Elementary School, met with Matt Stretanski, former Dallas swimming coach and current pool manager, and the district’s athletic director to work out a schedule. “We’re two neighboring districts – we should be friends,” said Edkins. “The coaches here are fair with us. (Dallas) always comes first because it’s their fa-

cility.” Stretanski, who coached the Dallas swim team for 14 years, said the Dallas team had similar issues before the natatorium was built at the middle school in 2002. The team held practices at Misericordia and couldn’t have a diving team due to the lack of facilities. “When we wanted to start diving, Wyoming Valley West, Wyoming Area, Wilkes-Barre Area and other districts were very supportive, and worked with us

to get us practice time,” he said. “One year, we had our home meets at Nanticoke.” Stretanski, who is also a history teacher at the middle school, said when Lake-Lehman officials approached him and others about the possibility of using the Dallas pool, he said it was like “paying it forward.” “We have a good relationship with Lake-Lehman, but we’d do it for anyone,” he said.

DHS students learn from the pros By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Calling all local professionals – Dallas High School students want to hear from you. The Dallas High School guidance department recently launched its “Career Spotlight Speaker Series,” in which local professionals, Dallas graduates or parents of Dallas students are invited to speak to high school students about a particular job field. Guidance counselor Robyn Jones said the series is part of a new directive in career preparation that will eventually be mandated by the state Department of Education. “We actually plan to be well ahead of the game,” said Jones. Along with the speaker series, the guidance department at the new high school features a career resource center, complete with a group counseling room and computers available for students to explore colleges

and career paths on their own. “The philosophy is that you’re here at Dallas High School to get an education to prepare you for your future contribution to society,” said Jones. “If you make it relevant to the student, the student takes ownership of their high school journey.” The speaker series has already had three programs in the following fields: dentistry, video game arts and engineering. The idea is to bring in Dallas alums or parents of current students. Jones said having locals explain their career paths is more encouraging for kids. “We’re trying to get the home, school, community - that dynamic triangle - to get together,” said Jones.

students. “Let’s bring people back who graduated to see our brandspanking beautiful new building and to give back to the school that gave so much to (them),” she said. “And not just graduates, but people in the community who live back here. What better teacher is there than experience?” Students seem to agree. Several students said they have benefited from the program, including senior Jess Adams, who hasn’t decided on his career yet but has a better idea due to the speaker series. Adams, 17, of Dallas, attended the presentation offered by

Jones hopes the program will eventually become self-sustaining, and she would like to see the entire school participate in helping students’ realize their futures. For example, Jones said, a person in a science field could talk to several science classes in a day. Right now, the program is held twice a month for a few students at one time of the day in the guidance department. “Then you have the entire See PROS, Page 12 school involved in career planning, not just the guidance department,” she said. The most difficult part in creating this speaker series is finding the speakers, and Jones hopes community members in various fields will eventually begin to volunteer to speak to

Talent abounds at Trinity Church By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

The Rev. Roger Griffith knows he has talent. He’s been part of the band, Eddie Day & the Starfires, as a bass player since the late 1960s. He knows his church has talent. Trinity Presbyterian Church on Irem Road in Dallas has had a praise band for the past seven years, and the group even revises classic hymns to breathe new life into older music. But it wasn’t until Feb. 17 that Griffith, who has been the pastor at Trinity for seven years after being away from the area, learned that the surrounding community has talent, too. The church sponsored a talent show, called Back Mountain Has Talent, to give locals a chance to let their varied skills shine. Auditions were held in five different categories: vocal, instrumental, dance, poetry and Broadway. Griffith got the idea to host the talent show after judging the open mic nights during Dallas Days before the Dallas Harvest Festival for the last three years. “Music has been important to me all my life, and it’s a big part of what we do here (at the church),” he said. “Music is very therapeutic and it transcends all ages and all barriers, across denominations.” Alecia Evans, 23, of Dallas, anxiously waited in the front pew to perform with her boyfriend, 30-year-old Robert Williams, of Dallas. Evans has been singing for much of her life, ever since she was a little girl singing along with her father’s band. “I can’t even remember the name of the band,” she said. Williams plays the guitar while the pair sings, and they perform covers along with original music, too. The furthest they’ve traveled for a gig is Atlantic City, New Jersey. The pair performed “Who Says You Can’t Go Home?” by Bon Jovi. “It’s nice that there’s finally something around here for people who want to perform,” said Evans. “There should definitely

be some more outlets for people to show what they’ve got.” The girls in the RJG Latino Multicultural Dancers group, based in Wilkes-Barre, seek out ways they can express themselves throughout the northeast. Kimmy Martinez, 13, of Wilkes-Barre, said the group was formed about four years ago to keep at-risk kids off the streets. Nine of the girls performed on Feb. 17, but the group is much larger. Martinez said the group makes its own costumes for performances. The furthest the girls have traveled for a performance was to Lopez, but they’ve also performed at the Fine Arts Fiesta in downtown WilkesBarre and at King’s College. “It’s basically to show our culture,” said Martinez. Kendall Mosley, 13, of WilkesBarre, had a bit of trouble when she first got on the stage for her audition. Technical difficulties kept her silent onstage for a few moments but not long after, she was belting out the Christian hymn, “How Can I Keep From Singing?” Mosley, who has been singing since she was 7 years old, heard about the talent show through her uncle Stephen Perillo. Perillo, who’s part of Making a Difference Ministries, also performed during the talent show with Barbara Roberts under the name BLEST. Mosley’s mother, Jaclyn, said their family is very musically inclined, but Kendall wasn’t always interested in expressing See TALENT, Page 12

Gas line replacement set to begin in July By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

F

ebruary 5 was more than Super Bowl Sunday – it was also Eagle Day at the Endless Mountains Nature Center in Tunkhannock. Naturegoers had the opportunity to enjoy a presentation by naturalist Rebecca Lesko called “A Year in the Life of an Eagle.” Wildlife photographers Jim and Joan Borden displayed their work and discussed their experiences watching bald eagles. Joe DeMarco, an expert bird watcher, helped attendees spot resident and migrant eagles at the Susquehanna River. Lesko also led the group in building an “eagles’ nest,” a make-and-take craft.

the project who told him the line was tested with a smart pig, a device that runs through the line to collect detailed information, in 2010 and it was deemed to be in “good condition.” Grant said the Williams engineer also told him the replacement is part of standard maintenance on the line. “They assured me…there were no problems,” said Grant. The Transco gas pipeline runs from Texas to New York. In Dallas Township, Williams Field Services LLC recently completed its 33-mile Springville Gathering Line from Susquehanna County, which taps into the Transco. Another gas company, Chief Gathering LLC, is in the process of constructing a gathering line to connect to the Transco line located in Dallas Township. Doughton told residents the Springville project is about 95 percent complete and vegetation will be planted on the right-ofway along Sedlar Road and in other areas in late March or early April. “They’re very sophisticated planting schedules, and … it’s strictly for storm water controls,” he said. Solicitor Thomas Brennan said the township must begin restructuring its zoning ordi-

Natural gas issues were at the forefront of the board of supervisors meeting on Tuesday, as officials discussed the replacement of the Transco pipeline and revising its zoning ordinance. The township office received notice Tuesday from the Williams-owned Transco interstate pipeline that two replacements of the line will begin in July and conclude in mid-September. Transco will replace a 2,044foot section that runs underneath Hildebrandt Road and a 193-foot section that runs between Yalick Road and Highland Boulevard. Resident Jane Tolomello asked the board whether the pipeline’s current condition poses a problem to residents. “I would like to know the reason why, because if it’s a matter of some dangers that they’re waiting until July to do – if it’s a matter of a leak waiting to happen – I think it would be nice for them to notify the municipality as well as the residents living nearby,” she said. Township Engineer Thomas Doughton said the company may be changing the class of the pipe, which determines the thickness. Supervisor Bill Grant said he spoke to a Williams official about See GAS, Page 12

Partnership votes to join BMT Chamber of Commerce By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

The Back Mountain Community Partnership voted to join the Back Mountain Chamber of Commerce at a meeting Feb. 16. Lynn Banta, co-founder of the chamber, presented information to the partnership about the organization and its inclusion of governmental bodies, nonprofit agencies and educational facilities. “The plan for the chamber is that there wouldn’t just be commerce,” said Banta. “There is a synergism between the commu-

nity and also the cultural resources in the Back Mountain.” Banta read a letter from the chamber’s board of directors, which explained the two groups’ similar missions in keeping intact the “growth, prosperity and safety” of the Back Mountain. The group unanimously voted to join the chamber. The partnership consists of Dallas Borough and Dallas, Franklin, Jackson, Kingston and Lehman townships. Representatives from Jackson and Lehman townships were not present at the meeting. Lehman Township is also part

HARVEYS LAKE BOROUGH

Wetland islands are discussed Consultant says floating islands will reduce phosphorus, enrich fishing, help natural growth. By SUSAN BETTINGER Dallas Post Correspondent

A consultant spoke to borough council and residents Tuesday night about the proposed floating wetland islands. Fred Lubnow, Ph.D., director of aquatic programs for Princeton Hydro of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, said the islands, which are made of recycled plastic, come in three different sizes. The 5-foot and 60-foot islands are globular in shape, while the 250-square-foot islands are more rectangular with curves, giving them the most natural appear-

ance. Lubnow noted three benefits the islands would bring to the lake. One is nutrient removal, with each island removing 10 pounds of phosphorous per year. One pound of phosphorous can generate 1,100 pounds of algae. The islands would enhance fishing in the area and aid in native vegetation growth. The islands would be anchored in place by cinder block and rope. Residents could ask to have an island, which can last for up to 10 years, placed near their property. Lubnow also noted the borough is able to secure grants for its projects because Harveys Lake is consistent in maintaining its structures. Once the borough has completed a model for reducing phosphorous in the lake, it will become eligible for funding to begin a dredging pro-

ject. With two more grants remaining, the phosphorous reduction should be complete by the end of 2012. Resident Carole Culver said she is unhappy with the recycling pickup. Culver said she takes the time to sort and tie newspapers, only to find that they are mixed in with regular trash. Councilwoman Amy Williams agreed. Councilwoman Michell’e Boice voiced her disappointment with state Rep. Karen Boback’s decision to vote in favor of the gas drilling bill , which takes away any rights the borough had in regards to drilling. Boice added that the bill is a “gift to the gas industry, but a slap to the citizens.” She urged all residents to get involved with this issue, and said the gas industry is now doing to the land what the coal mining industry did in past years.

LEHMAN TOWNSHIP

$75,000 paving grant awarded CAMILLE FIOTI Dallas Post Correspondent

The township was awarded a $75,000 Community Development Block Grant to pave a portion of the township roads, the Board of Supervisors announced Monday. “It’s considerably less than we’ve gotten in previous years, but all money is welcome here,” said Supervisor Doug Ide. Municipalities can apply for the grant, which is funded by

the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, every three years. The amount of the last block grant the township received was $99,000, the board said. The money will be used to pave roads in the Lake Silkworth area and possibly others in the township. “We’re going to see how far we can stretch ($75,000),” said Ide, adding that the grant would have to be combined with township funds. After the meeting, Ide gave an informal tour of the township’s new $750,000, 120-by-60-

foot garage. The insulated pole barn has six bays with automatic doors, radiant heated floors, a separate storage room, future locker area and a spacious break room, complete with a full kitchen. Township funds were used to build the garage, which is large enough to house all the township’s road equipment and police cruisers, Ide said. An open house, which will include a tour of the garage and the renovated municipal building, will take place in the spring.

between businesses and the municipalities in which they’re located. “In most cases, communities don’t hear from businesses unless they are applying for some-

thing or are expanding, and then there is no input until it’s too late,” said Reino, who will serve as the group’s representative for the chamber. “I think this is the first chamber like this I’ve heard of in the state.” In other news, the group discussed earned income tax collection within individual municipalities. • Mike Prokopchak, of Franklin Township, said there have been instances in which residents’ addresses don’t reflect where they actually live, and this could result in the wrong municipality collecting earned income taxes.

“For example, I live in Franklin Township, but my address says ... Dallas,” he said. He said that sort of confusion hurts smaller municipalities like Franklin Township, which has an annual budget of about $300,000. The group agreed to ask a representative from the Don Wilkinson Agency to discuss this and other issues at its next meeting. • The next Back Mountain Community Partnership meeting will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday, March 15 in Insalaco Hall at Misericordia University, 301 Lake St., Dallas Township.

MOMENTS IN TIME By Samantha Weaver • It was English philosopher Francis Bacon who made the following sage observation: “The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses.” • I’m sure you’ve seen photos of those picturesque covered bridges. It seems that they would have provided a welcome haven for people driving buggies caught out in the rain. You may be surprised to learn, though, that the bridges weren’t designed with a roof for the comfort of travelers. Being made of wood in an era before protective sealants, the bridges themselves needed to be protected from the elements. • Most frogs lay their eggs in the water; that way, when the tadpoles hatch they are already in their element. The red-eyed tree frog, however, protects its eggs from aquatic predators by attaching its eggs to the underside of leaves that hang out over a body of water. Once the eggs hatch, the tadpoles fall into the water. • The next time you travel to the United Kingdom, if you visit the university towns of Cambridge or Oxford, you should keep off the grass. Professors are the only ones allowed to walk on most of the green swards in those towns. • In ancient Rome, it was widely believed that holding in gas could cause a person to catch a disease or become poisoned. This was such a concern to public health that Emperor Claudius went so far as to pass a law making it legal to fart at banquets. • Have you ever known someone who keeps making the same error over and over again despite being corrected? The next time you run into this person, you’ll know what to call him or her: a mumpsimus.

There are new rules of engagement An unsuspecting woman cast her fishing line into a Twin Cities lake recently only to reel in a dazzling diamond ring, which had been attached to the hook by professional divers underwater. An Ikea shopping trip for another couple ended with the future groom breaking into song and dance before getting on one knee. To stage his proposal, a selfproclaimed “thrill-seeker” enlisted the help of a pair of Minneapolis cops to fake his arrest for homicide in front of his future bride. Those stories may be rare, but more people are finding elaborate, sometimes extreme ways to propose marriage, wedding industry experts say. For many couples, the marriage proposal has become part of the wedding build-up, complete with paparazzi-style photography to capture

the moment, and often, an audience. Some grooms-to-be are even hiring a “proposal planner” - for a fee of $2,000 to $10,000 - who all but promises that the bride-to-be will say yes. “I’m only getting married once, so I wanted this to be an engagement to remember,” Ryan Calhoun, 28, said of his “shocking” arrest proposal, which he said had little romance but plenty of adrenaline. “It was a little risky, and it takes the right woman to do something like this.” From engagements that create public spectacles to private, jetsetting fairy tales, popping the question is not just becoming a bigger deal. It’s big business, too. Amy Lynch isn’t surprised. The Nashville author and researcher of generations Y and Z said couples are getting married later in life and typically living together before they’re engaged, therefore demystifying the proposal process - to the point that

they feel the need to turn it into an event. “Marriage isn’t the usual marker of adulthood that it used to be,” Lynch said. “It’s a bigger decision to make, so the proposal and the wedding have accorded more importance.” Local jewelers say popping the question with a ring is no longer enough. Most women want to pick out their engagement rings, yet nearly 70 percent of women surveyed feel the “Surprise factor” is essential to the perfect proposal, according to a joint survey by theknot.com and Men’s Health magazine. Having been in the business since the 1970s, Rich Nordstrom, manager of Bergstrom Jewelers in St. Louis Park, said he’s pleased to see that guys are going the distance to propose, because it hasn’t always been that way. “This is something you’re going to remember forever and

reminisce about,” he said. “Since she already knows she’s getting a ring, there’s more pressure to surprise her so that moment is burned into her memory forever.” Meaghan Butzer, 31, of Minneapolis, says her “fairy tale” engagement is the topic of conversation at the Edina, Minn., salon where she works. How he proposed is usually one of the first things inquiring minds want to know. Butzer’s fiance, an airline pilot, surprised her with a recent trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan via an open-cockpit airplane that was used as a military trainer in World War II. “He put so much thought and effort into it - it felt like a fairy tale,” Butzer said. “I wasn’t expecting it at all. ... I wasn’t wearing clothes suited for oil to be dripping everywhere, but he’d packed my flight suit.”

L-J STUDENTS HOLD FOOD DRIVE

Lehman-Jackson Elementary School students and staff recently donated boxes of food to the Back Mountain Food Pantry. The goal was for each class to donate 100 cans of food for the celebration of the 100th day of school. The students were very generous and far exceeded their goal. The Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) also donated money to the food pantry. The Back Mountain Food Pantry has provided food for residents in the Dallas and Lake-Lehman School Districts since 1977 and has seen an increase in the number of families needing assistance. Assisting in packaging the food are, from left, Mrs. Doreen Johnson, sixth-grade teacher; Sahara Carr, Raven Moore, Carly Souder, Liam O’Brien, Tyler Savitski and Carol Eyet, Back Mountain Food Pantry manager.

Misericordia University’s The Highlander student newspaper won two Pennsylvania Newspaper Association Keystone Press Awards. From left, are Amber Gulla of Plains, April Dulsky of Dallas Township, Josh Horton of Pittston, Ellen Hoffman of Kingston, Julia Truax of Millville and Katlin Bunton of Kingston.

MU student newspaper cited

The staff of Misericordia University’s student newspaper, The Highlander, was awarded two Keystone Press Awards by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association (PNA). Writers April Dulsky of Dallas Township, Josh Horton of Pittston and Julia Truax of Millville, received a secondplace award in the category of On-Going News Coverage for a series of reports on evacuation and student recovery efforts by the Misericordia University campus community following the historic flooding caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in September 2011. Misericordia senior Amber Gulla of Plains Township received honorable mention in the category of Public Service/Enterprise Package. Her article, “Where the Green Grass Shouldn’t Grow,” was published Oct. 20, 2011, and inspired a student campaign that led to improvements to the building that houses the campus commuter lounge. Dulsky’s Sept. 22 article, “Picking Up the Pieces Together,” detailed the experiences of students and staff

who were personally impacted by the unprecedented flooding in September 2011, including those from the hardest-hit towns of Bloomsburg, Tunkhannock and West Pittston. Dulsky is a senior majoring in communications and English. She is the web editor for the newspaper. A frequent contributor since her freshman year, Dulsky also won an award for her enterprise news story, “Loophole Lassos Students’ Health Care” in 2011. Horton’s submission, “Open Arms for Evacuees,” published on Sept. 13, covered the anguish and appreciation of the flood evacuees housed temporarily at the Misericordia University Anderson Sports and Health Center. “I just happened to be on campus at the time the evacuees were starting to arrive, and I was able to cover the news story as it was happening,” he said. “It was a tough article to write. It was so sad the people were so frightened and worried about what was happening to their homes yet, at the same time, they were so appreciative of having a place to stay.”

Truax authored the article, “Residential Cleanup Trucks On,” on Oct. 5, 2011. She reported on recovery efforts by Misericordia students in Myo Beach, a small community along the Susquehanna River in Wyoming County that was decimated by the flooding. “I went to Myo Beach with a team of Misericordia students organized by Campus Ministry,” said Truax, the content editor and senior majoring in communications and psychology. “The people were so appreciative of the volunteer help and told me that they didn’t know how they would ever get back into their houses without the help of the Misericordia students.” The Misericordia students will attend the Keystone Press Awards banquet to be held in Hershey in March, along with editor-in-chief Katlin Bunton, a senior communications major specializing in journalism and public relations and print editor Ellen Hoffman, a sophomore communications major, both of Kingston. The Highlander can be accessed online at www.highlandernews.net.

Softball organization seeking players

Nanticoke broke open a onepoint game midway through the third quarter to defeat Lake-Lehman, 60-42, in the Wyoming Valley Conference Division III girls basketball championship Monday at Holy Redeemer High School. There were four lead changes and three ties in a tightly-contested first half. The game stayed close well into the third quarter, and the Black knights (17-67) worked a five-point play to cut the Nanticoke lead to 25-24. Emily Sutton put home an offensive rebound and earned a free throw which she sank. On the ensuing inbound play, a miscommunication between the Trojanettes put the entry pass directly into Nikki Sutliff’s hands for an uncontested layup. The miscue sparked Nanticoke, which scored 14 of the next 17 points and the Nanticoke lead was extended to 37-25. Sutton paced Lake-Lehman with 14 points and had seven rebounds. Cayle Spencer added 12 points and eight rebounds and Sutliff posted 11 points. Carol Mosier had six rebounds for the lady Black Knights.

Mountaineer Don Behm maneuvers his way through several Tunkhannock defenders.

Dall boys advance Dallas had three players reach double figures to defeat Tunkhannock, 49-45, to capture the Wyoming Valley Conference Division II boys basketball title Tuesday night at Lake-Lehman High School. Dallas (14-8) overall won its first WVC divisional title in a very long by winning the first-half title and then stumbling to a 30-4 finish in the second half of the season. The latter allowed Tunkhannock (14-9) to gain secondhalf honors. Dallas senior guard Paul Brace and Bob Saba led Dallas with 12 points each while Jason Simonovich added 11 more. Saba played a more important role defensively as he shut down Tunkhannock freshman Austin Yanora, who had 25 points, including eight three-pointers when the two teams had met four days earlier. In Tuesday’s game, he had a lone three-pointer and attempted only two shots. Tunkhannock’s big guy, 6foot-10 senior James Hawk, dominated early. Less than four minutes into the game, he had six points and three rebounds. By halftime, he had eight points and nine boards. After that, his lone secondhalf field goal attempt was an outside jumper with 1:48 remaining and the Tigers trailing, 44-38.

Shane Dunn goes high for a shot attempt over Tunkhannock’s AJ Brennan.

Hawk finished with a double-double – 10 points and 12 rebounds. Doug Miller singled out Christ Ostrum’s defense on the Tunkhannock center but there were a few times when Hawk was guarded solely by 6-foot Donnie Behm yet didn’t get the ball.

Both teams were scheduled to resume their seasons Friday in the District 2 Class 3A playoffs. Tunkhannock was set to play North Pocono at Pittston Area High School while Dallas planned to travel to Carbondale High School to play Abington Heights.

The board also heard from resident Kerrie Anderson, who has been trying to prove that the township owns her street, Skyview Drive, for the last three years. The street is part of New Goss Manor and Anderson said the township road department does not plow snow or complete maintenance on the roadway, though she believes it is part of the township. She said it is a dangerous situation for her family. She also said she has documents to prove the street is owned by the township. The board had tabled a decision about what to decide in Anderson’s circumstances at its

last meeting, but Brennan said the board decided Tuesday that the road does not belong to the township and, therefore, is ineligible to receive service. Anderson said she will continue to fight the decision through legal actions.

Roth on dean’s list

Zachery Roth, of Shavertown, has been named to the dean’s list at Lafayette College for the fall 2011 semester. To qualify for the dean’s list, a student has achieved at least a 3.60 semester grade point average out of a possible 4.0.

Game time is 3:05 p.m. and a free autograph book will be given to the first 1,500 fans age 14 and younger. In addition, a free hat will be given to every person who purchases a ticket through this fundraiser program. For more information or to

out overtime victory to claim the championship. Shultz took second place and had two pins and a 5-3 overtime victory on the day. In the Rock Rec Center Tournament, Newell had an impressive outing, pinning all of his opponents on the way to another first-place finish.

Volpetti also claimed the championship with one pin and three tough close matches. The boys will compete in Canton and then the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling district, regional and state championships.

are required for the field. He said the presentation made him more inclined to pursue the field because he knows what it’s all about, though he admits he’s still undecided. Senior Josh Shilanski, of Shavertown, chose to attend the dentistry speaker program with Dr. Duane Sprau of Clements Dentistry because he’s always been interested in becoming a dentist. He said the speaker program only reinforced his desire to enter into the field, and Shilanski ended up learning more about the career as a result. “This actually provided the most information out of everything I’ve done,” he said. “It gave insight on what he went through to become a dentist and what he goes through on a daily basis as a dentist.” Jones said 17-year-old Shilanski has been accepted to Temple University in Philadelphia,

which has “a very reputable dentistry program.” Seventeen-year-old Megan Redlich, of Dallas, is one of Dallas High School’s “tech gurus” under the advisement of technology director Bill Gartrell. As a lover of technology and art, Redlich thought it would be worthwhile to attend the video game art and design speaker series with Dallas graduate Joseph Stachnik. Redlich wants to pursue a career in digital animation. “It inspired me more because of the sort of things (Stachnik) does and what he works with,” she said. Redlich plans to attend a school in Florida after graduation. She said the speaker program only increased her passion for the field. “It’s always more helpful to hear something firsthand than to read it somewhere, and it’s always a confirmation of things,” she said.

residents Diane and Steve Thompson, who are engineers. “Engineering is something I’ve considered as one of the career choices I might want to look into,” he said. Adams enjoys math and is also considering careers in architecture and teaching. “Mr. Thompson talked about how many kids go in choosing one section of engineering but may end up switching to another,” he said. “It just shows you can go into something and figure things out and it ends up being different than you thought – you have to keep your mind open.” Adams realized the kind of education he needed to be an engineer and what specific skills

PEOPLE BRIEFS

PROS

RIVALRY Though the Lake-Lehman group is small (there are 16 swimmers and two divers), Edkins said the team is full of talent and potential. Stretanski noticed a difference in the Dallas team after it began using its own pool. “It gives them a comfort level and confidence,” he said of the young swimmers. “They feel secure and they know where they’re going. It’s a big help for the kids, and that’s why we’re all here.” Junior Lake-Lehman swimmer Samantha Sabol, 17, of Shavertown, said using the Dallas facilities has made life as a competitive swimmer just a little bit easier. “It was hard to schedule practice and meets when we were at Misericordia because we had to work around their schedule,” she said. “I swam here (at Dallas) when I was younger and this is my favorite pool. I think we have more people coming to the meets, too, because the benches are bigger.” Edkins said having a pool built at the junior/senior high school in Lehman Township is just a dream, but the current situation is working well and she hopes it will continue in the future. “People are cooperating with it and we’re so grateful for the support,” she said. Edkins also said the long-
