‘Greatest generation’ honored at breakfast

Local WWII vets recognized for service By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Jack Evans, 89, can vividly recall his service in the U.S. military during World War II. Not that he needs any reminding – there have been television programs, movies and books created to document the experiences of his unit, the E Company (“Easy Company”) of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment assigned to the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. He parachuted behind enemy lines in Normandy on June 5,

1942 – the day before United States forces stormed French beaches in what is often considered one of the most important battles in United States military history. Evans, of Trucksville, was one of eight honored at the Back Mountain Ecumenical Men’s Breakfast on May 3 for their service during World War II. Others honored were Willis Ide, George Pyle, Peter Roushey, Peter George, former state Sen. Charles Lemmond and Kenneth Cosgrove. Wally Gosart was also among the honorees but could not attend the breakfast.

The honor was a surprise. The breakfast, a weekly event for the group, was organized to celebrate Mother’s Day with the wives of the approximately 80 men who live throughout the Back Mountain. Representatives from the state House of Representatives and Senate offices, as well as a representative from U.S. Congressman Tom Marino’s office presented certificates to the men to commemorate the service of “the greatest generation.” Before he knew he was being honored, Evans compared the closeness of the Ecumenical

group to the tight-knit way of life he experienced in the military. “We have closeness in fellowship,” he said of the group, of which he’s been a member for a few years. “We’re genuinely conCHARLOTTE BARTIZEK/ FOR THE DALLAS POST cerned about one another.” Ide, 86, was stationed in Stutt- The seven of the eight men honored by the Back Mountain Ecgart, Germany with the U.S. Ar- umenical Breakfast Group for their service in World War II are, my the day the war ended – Sept. from left, Kenneth Cosgrove, former state Sen.

Student banks on helping animals of SPCA

Company presents gas pipeline plans Solicitor says a recommendation could take ‘months and months.’ By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

BILL TARUTIS/ FOR THE DALLAS POST

Kyla O’Brien, 4, of Dallas, donated over $40 she had saved to the SPCA instead of buying new shoes.

COUNT & CARE By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

K

yla O’Brien, 4, is a noble citizen. • She does chores, helps her mother, Jenelle, around the house regularly and tries her best to be nice to her 2-year-old brother Braden. For her good deeds, Kyla gets a few coins in a bucket to save for something her little heart desires. • But a culmination of her good deeds turned into an even greater sacrifice earlier this year. Kyla, of Dallas, gave up a fancy pair of shoes and donated her good deeds money to the SPCA of Luzerne County “for all the animals to have toys and food and everything they need.”

Jenelle said Kyla wanted a new pair of shoes, but not just any old shoes – Sketchers’ Twinkle Toes, the pink, sparkly shoes that light up when the soles touch the ground. But with a price tag of around $40, Jenelle decided to have Kyla earn the money through good behavior and household chore rewards rather than shelling out the cash right away. “My husband says things don’t come easy in life,” said Jenelle. “I

don’t want her to ask for a pair of shoes and get them, but I want something good to come out of what she wants. The reward is in also how she feels (when she does a good deed).” Preschool teacher Becky Kosierowski, of Wyoming, was wrapping up a lesson on pets at the Trucksville Early Childhood Education Center about 10 weeks ago during See CARE, Page 8

Dallas Township Planning Commission members received an introductory presentation Tuesday for Williams Field Services LLC’s land development and subdivision applications for its proposed pipeline project. Residents also attended the meeting, prepared to address safety and location concerns. The proposed 33 ½ mile Springville Gathering Line would tap into the Transco interstate pipeline at a site off Hildebrandt Road, about 1,800 feet from the Dallas School District campus. Michael Dickinson, manager of operations and technical services for Williams, presented an overview of the project, including its estimated 5 ½ miles of pipeline located in Dallas and Franklin townships in Luzerne County. The pipeline would begin near Springville Township in Susquehanna County, weave through Wyoming County to a compressor station near Tunkhannock Township and cross 24 properties in Luzerne County to end at a maintenance and tap site on 2 of 4 acres owned by William and Priscilla Perry. The company withdrew a joint application at the April 12 planning commission meeting for land development and subdivision for a natural gas metering station to measure the gas going into the Transco line. That structure, which would include a communications tower, two 3,000-gallon tanks of mercaptan, various piping and valves and condensate tanks, was planned for the Perry property. Williams’ attorney Shawn Gallagher said the company still plans to pursue its zoning application for special exceptions for the metering station. That hearing will be held May 16. The company could not receive land development approval for the metering station last month because its use was not permitted yet by the zoning hearing board. Planning Commission Solicitor William McCall told residents the purpose of the commission is to ensure the applicant meets all the criteria of the subdivision and land development ordinance, and, if it does, the applicant is entitled to approval. He said the commission votes to make a recommendation to the township supervisors for the project after all the plan details have been analyzed by commission members and various engineers involved in the project. Three commission members were at the meeting, Chairman Jack Dodson, Bob Besecker Jr. and Dan Jones, while two others, See PIPELINE, Page 3

PIPELINE Continued from Page 1

John Halbing and Charles Kishbaugh, were absent. “The planning commission is an agency of the township – it is not a policy-making agency,” he said. “It does not determine what will be permitted or what will not be permitted in the township.” Besecker made a motion for Williams’ engineering firm, Milnes Engineering Co., and the township engineers and others involved in the project to have an open dialogue. Township Engineer Thomas Doughton said he’ll need time to assemble comments between himself and several engineers and review the analysis before forwarding information to the planning commission. Resident Rob Friedman of Lower Demunds Road requested to include a letter from his attorney, Earl Philips of the Connecticut-based Robinson and Cole law firm, in the meeting minutes. He said the information he requested the day prior to the meeting was inaccurate because it included plans for the metering station. He also said a public notice was not made for the new application and asked that the planning commission “deny the Williams application as incomplete and inconsistent with the plans submitted.” McCall said public meeting notices are not required for the planning commission and it meets on the second Tuesday of the month throughout the year to address whatever matter is on its agenda. Several residents questioned whether the planning commission received accurate plans for review of the project. Dodson also said it is standard procedure for the planning commission to have its first look at applications at a meeting - not beforehand. Several members had an older version of the Williams’ plans, and Zoning Officer Leonard Kozick was able to provide the commission with new documents later in the evening. Resident Duke Barrett asked a question relating to a “hazard radius,” which he described as an equation that would determine “what a safe distance if for some reason that at any given point there would be a blast … from any occupied building.”

UP NEXT The zoning hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m. May 16 in the Dallas Middle School auditorium for Williams’ application for special exceptions to build a metering station off Hildebrandt Road, about 1,800 feet from the Dallas schools. A continuation of the planning commission meeting will be held at 7 p.m. June 14 in the municipal building for Williams’ applications for land development and subdivision of its pipeline project.

David Bradford, a project manager for the Williams proposed pipeline, said the company follows all federal guidelines required for pipeline construction. He said when the pipeline crosses from the Wyoming County border to Luzerne County, the thickness of the pipe increases to accommodate safety regulations for a more populated area. McCall noted that safety and design concerns are usually addressed by the zoning hearing board, not the planning commission. Other residents were able to ask questions of the Williams representatives relating to matters such as the company’s compliance with the township and the location of the proposed pipeline. Resident Wayne Dottor, of Fairground Road, had concerns about the location of the proposed pipeline, as well as its connection to the planned metering station. “What good is a pipeline without a metering station?” he asked. Dickinson said the company will “definitely need to have a way to measure gas in the pipeline.” He said upon withdrawing the land development application for the metering station, the company now has time to search for alternative sites. Dottor also asked why the proposed projects are being planned “600 feet” from his home and the Dallas schools. Dickinson said the area was chosen because it’s “away from high traffic areas, outside of commercially developed areas, undeveloped, (and) away from a lot of high population areas.” Resident Scott Watkins then asked how close the metering station would need to be to effectively measure the gas. “Preferably as close as possible to where the gas changes hands,” said Dickinson, referring to where the Springville Gathering Line would tap into the Transco interstate line. He said the farther away from the transfer site, there would be fewer options to flow additional gas to the interstate line and the

measurement of the gas may be less accurate. Resident Norm Tomchak wanted to learn more about the pressure of the gas located in both the Springville line and the Transco line. Bradford said the maximum operating pressure of the Transco line is 1,200 pounds per square inch (psi) and the Springville line will need to operate at a higher pressure to deliver the gas to the interstate line. He also said the Springville line will have a maximum operating pressure of 1,400 psi. Bradford also answered Tomchak’s second question about where the odorant mercaptan, which gives natural gas its rotten-egg-like smell, would be added. He said it would be added at the metering site and gas flowing through the pipeline in Dallas Township would be odorless. Jane Tolomello, also of Fairground Road, asked why the company is still pursuing its May 16 zoning hearing for the metering station if other sites are being scouted. “That’s a great question,” said Bradford. Chief Gathering LLC is currently involved in a Dallas Township zoning hearing for its application to build a natural gas metering station near the Dallas schools about 500 feet from the proposed Williams site. Proceedings began in February, and more witnesses still need to be called to testify on behalf of the project. It will be continued on May 31. McCall said the receiving a recommendation from the planning commission could take months, as well. If a decision has not been reached in 90 days, the company can either file an extension for the planning commission’s decision or the commission will have to vote on the project at that time. “In the past, matters of major land development programs take months and months because of the detail required in the engineering review and the response of the applicant to the commentary that is generated by the engineers,” he said.

The pipeline would begin near Springville Township in Susquehanna County, weave through Wyoming County to a compressor station near Tunkhannock Township and cross 24 properties in Luzerne County to end at a maintenance and tap site on 2 of 4 acres owned by William and Priscilla Perry.

Swapping shovel for mower Too many years in south Florida has thinned my blood and it wasn’t until last week when the temperature stayed in the 60s that the winter parka was put away. The snow shovel found its place in the corner of the cellar along with the bucket of rock salt, only to be replaced with a weed whacker and a bucket of hand trimmers on the front porch. The recent rains must have contained steroids since every blade of grass here in Lehman is growing faster than the price of gasoline. With the current price of gas comes a dilemma. Do you run the riding mower at full throttle as usual, consume three tanks (3 gallons) of fuel and get all the grass cut in about four hours or do you run half throttle, use two tanks of fuel and take six hours? We’re talking almost $16 in fuel per week if you only cut once. Guess the days of the neighbor kid coming by with an old non-motorized push mower

HARPIN’ ON THINGS

HARP HEFFERNAN to cut your grass for $5 are gone. I can just envision an entrepreneurial youngster with a mower today. Earrings glistening, talking with a lisp due to the stud in his tongue, hat on backwards, tattoos and looking at his feet while talking instead of making eye contact, after having pulled up in his father’s Avalanche with a custom trailer towing a riding mower that has more gadgets than a James Bond car. The mower would have remote control start and no backup pull start cord. Wouldn’t want to get a blister now, would we? Mag wheels, mini Flow Master muffler, custom riding seat with head rest, chrome roll bar and lights underneath. It was almost too much to think about last week so going out to the fly fishing stretch of Bowman’s Creek was looking

better but the Mrs. wanted to get outside and said she’d help with the lawn chores. Who am I to turn down help? I would use the push mower and she could use the zero turn riding mower with the two handles to maneuver. Getting it started, I explained how to push both handles forward to go forward and pull back to reverse. Pull the left one back and right one forward to turn left and right one back and left forward to turn right. I gave it some throttle and told her to practice. She pushed both handles forward, the mower jerked and, after losing her balance, yanked back on the left. I jumped out of the way as she started spinning around like Kevin Harvick doing donuts after winning a race. After the third revolution, she let go of both handles, gave me the “look” and said she would use the push mower. I explained about priming the engine, holding the handle down so it would run and how to use the pull cord. I waited to hear the engine come to life but all I heard was grunting. I turn-

ed to see her trying to pull the cord but not getting anywhere. I went back to see what the problem was and she explained that the pull cord was on the right side and she’s left handed. Wanting to see if this was just an excuse to get out of helping, I had her try the weed whacker and leaf blower with the same result. She just doesn’t have enough strength in her right arm. We managed to get the lawn completed but I had to start every piece of equipment we used. The situation made me think about left-handed people so I decided to check a few of the local lawn equipment places. Stopping at C.H. Waltz Sons, I talked to parts manager Dale Edwards and his mechanic David Stokes. I asked if they had any lawnmowers or other equipment with left-handed pull starts. Neither had seen anything like that but Stokes did say it’s possible to reverse the pull start on a weed whacker to pull with the left hand, although it would be at a bad angle. Explaining my dilemma to parts and sales manager Keith

happy to have a drop off. So many (people) are afraid to have them in their cabinets or to flush them down the drain.” Musial said 25 participants dropped off unused prescription medication, and he said there were no illegal narcotics involved in the event. “There were people that had expired prescriptions for years, and just held onto them because they had no idea what to do with them,” said Musial. “It was relief for them to be able to dispose of the drugs properly.” The event was also held in Kingston Township, which collected about 35 pounds of unused medication.

Williams at Hilbert’s Equipment, I was told he didn’t know of a company that makes gaspowered mowers, blowers or trimmers that start on the lefthand side. I looked into the office for Larry Hilbert and there he was writing away with his left hand. As it turns out Larry is a southpaw who had to train himself to adjust to the right-handed world.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

• On May 23, 1701, at London’s Execution Dock, British privateer William Kidd, popularly known as Captain Kidd, is hanged for five charges of piracy and one charge of murdering a crewman. A colorful Kidd legend included reports of lost buried treasure that fortune seekers have pursued for centuries. • On May 24, 1883, after 14 years and 27 deaths while being constructed, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York is opened, the largest suspension bridge ever built to that date. • On May 27, 1894, Dashiell Hammett, author of “The Maltese Falcon,” is born in Maryland. He worked as a Pinkerton detective for eight years and turned his experiences into fiction. The novel was filmed three times: once in 1931; again in 1936 under the title "Satan Met a Lady," starring Bette Davis; and finally in 1941, starring Humphrey Bogart. • On May 26, 1927, the final and 15 millionth Model T Ford rolls out of the factory, on the official last day of production. Introduced in October 1908, the Model T - also known as the “Tin Lizzie” - got about 13 to 21 miles per gallon of gasoline and could travel up to 45 mph. • On May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa of Nepal, become the first explorers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. At 29,035 feet above sea level, the low-oxygen summit of Everest reaches twothirds of the way through the air of earth’s atmosphere - at about the cruising altitude of jet airliners. • On May 25, 1977, George Lucas’ blockbuster movie “Star Wars” opens in American theaters. With its groundbreaking special effects, "Star Wars" was soon a bona-fide pop culture phenomenon, spawning five more feature films, five TV series and an entire industry’s worth of comic books, toys and video games. • On May 28, 1983, Irene Cara’s song “Flashdance (What a Feeling)”, from the “Flashdance” movie soundtrack, goes to the top of the U.S. pop charts. The song helped propel the relatively low-budget film to the No. 3 spot on the total box-office revenue list for the year.

STRANGE BUT TRUE • It was British author Douglas Adams, best known for his “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” novels, who made the following sage observation: “Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” • In the African nation of Sudan, a traditional wedding includes a ceremony known as “sungkem,” in which the bride and groom kiss the knees of their parents. • “Casablanca,” starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, is one of the most beloved movies of all time, frequently being listed at or near the top of lists of the best films ever made. However, shortly after its release in November 1942, The New Yorker rated it only “pretty tolerable.” • Connoisseurs of frog legs claim that you should leave the toes on when frying - they’re good for picking your teeth after eating. • The deepest hole ever drilled by humans reached a whopping depth of 7.62 miles. The project, known as the Kola Superdeep Borehole, was undertaken in Russia for the purpose of scientific research. • At any given time, about two-thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by clouds. • American author, abolitionist, naturalist, historian and philosopher Henry David Thoreau died on May 6, 1862, of complications of tuberculosis. Those who were with him during his final moments say his last words were “moose” and “Indian.” • The tiny nation of San Marino, which is entirely encircled by Italy, is the world’s oldest surviving sovereign state and constitutional republic. It was founded by a stonecutter in the year 301, and the constitution was enacted in 1600 - the world’s oldest still in effect. ••• Thought for the day: “There’s no secret about success. Did you ever know a successful man who didn’t tell you about it?” -— Kin Hubbard

He said his unit was set up on top of a ridge to track German soldiers. “We didn’t even know the war had ended,” said Ide, of Sweet Valley. “We got word and saw that the Germans were marching in towards us. We had to tear down and get off in a hurry, and I ended up (hurting) myself and spending time in a hospital in France before I came home.” After his mission in Germany, Ide was supposed to serve time in the Pacific Theater. “I’m glad it was over,” he said.

Gottshalk was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II, serving on the U.S.S. Gherardi. The ship served as a fire support area during the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France, and also participated in invasions in southern France and in Okinawa, Japan. “I was gathering information, then something would come up,” said Kelleher of planning the event. “Then Kep passed away, and I said, ‘We’ve got to do this.’” During the event, Kelleher and three other group members - Ted Rebennack, Jim Morpeth and Ray Patsko – who form the barbershop quartet Three Friends and a Baritone, performed a medley of U.S. military songs. The men asked veterans to stand when the group sang about the faction of the military with which they served. The group sang “The Army Goes Rolling Along,” for Army veterans, “Marines’ Hymn” for former Marines, “Anchors Aweigh” for those who served in the Navy and “The U.S. Air Force” for Air Force veterans. “I had to take a break from singing because some of the guys are getting up in age and they stood up,” said Kelleher. “When I think of the sacrifices that many have made – sacrifices that could have led to the ultimate sacrifice – I get emotional.” Another breakfast group member, William Wentz, was recognized for his service during the event. Bob Deeble, co-founder of the group, said Wentz did not complete forms prior to the ceremony indicating that he was a World War II veteran, but later received certificates for his efforts.

which students had the opportunity to meet some animals from the SPCA and donate money towards the cause. Kosierowski had a feeling some of the 3 and 4-year-olds she taught might not completely understand the concept of nonprofit organizations, so she incorporated the animal shelter into the next lesson – counting.

D A L L A S

Students counted coins to be donated to the SPCA, and Kosierowski tried to explain why the organization needed the funds. “I told them the animals need help, but it’s difficult to explain it on their terms and their level,” she said. Kyla got it – with just about 10 coins in her good deeds bucket, she told her mother that, rather than buy the expensive, cool new

kicks, she’d rather give the money to the animals that need it more. Others joined Kyla on her mission to help the animal shelter. Family, friends and classmates all donated towards the cause, and Kyla was able to raise the amount of money to pay for the shoes – about $42 – to give to the SPCA. Her generosity was rewarded, as well. Jenelle and her husband,

Chris, decided to buy Kyla a pair of Twinkle Toes because of her selflessness. “I didn’t want my shoes, but I’m lucky my mom and dad got them for me,” the youngster said. “I wanted to donate the money so (the animals) could be happy, and they could do good deeds for people.” Kyla’s compassion stands out in the four years Kosierowski has been teaching at the Trucksville

Early Childhood Education Center. “It’s amazing, and it’s nice to hear,” the teacher said. “A lot of children don’t think of other people. Especially at this age, you don’t see a lot of kids as altruistic.” Kyla hopes to have a “big dog” of her own one day, but she doesn’t even have any pets of her own at home. “I just have a brother,” she said.

A show to REMEMBER

embers of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have elected John “Jay” Wilkes Jr., chairman of the board of supervisors and roadmaster for Jackson Township, to a first three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee.

The election took place during PSATS’ 89th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show held April 17-20 in Hershey. This is the largest municipal event of its kind in the state with close to 4,000 attendees. The seven-member Executive Committee and the association’s five officers make up the 12-member Executive Board, which is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association. The board meets frequently throughout the year to oversee association business and plan new projects that will benefit member townships. Wilkes is a member of the association’s Grassroots Lobbying Network, which addresses legislative issues that affect ev-

ery Pennsylvanian who lives in a township of the second class. He previously served as chairman of the association’s Townships With Populations Greater Than 2,000 But Less Than 5,000 Committee and as a member of the Legislative and Annual Conference Planning committees. He has also served as a sergeant at arms during PSATS’ Annual Educational Conference. A firefighter apparatus operator for Edwardsville Borough, Wilkes also serves on Jackson Township’s recreation board and planning commission and is deputy chief of the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency. He is a past president and current vice president of the Luzerne County Association of Township Officials and also serves on that association’s convention planning committee. Wilkes is vice chairman of the Back Mountain Community Partnership and a member of the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department and the Luzerne County Conservation District Board of Directors. He is a member and past chairman of the State Correctional Institution-Dallas Municipal Advisory Committee and is a Pennsylvania state constable and the Jackson Township liaison for Boy Scout Troop #146.

KINGSTON TOWNSHIP BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

Supervisors table decision to switch EMS providers By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

K

ingston Township Board of Supervisors announced Wednesday it is considering a switch of its first-due emergency medical service providers. A resolution to change the provider from Trans-Med ambulance and wheelchair van service of Forty Fort to the Wyoming Hose Company No. 1 of West Wyoming was tabled due to a lack of information.

Township Manager Kathleen Sebastian said the Trucksville Volunteer Emergency Medical Service, Fire and Rescue had recently spurred the switch, but supervisors were unaware of a specific reason for the change. David Prohaska, community relations for Trans-Med, spoke out during a public hearing on the matter. He said the for-profit organization was “blindsided” with news of the change earlier on Wednesday.

Prohaska also said representatives from the company were not invited to the board’s work session on Monday night, when the proposed change was first discussed among supervisors. He asked whether the township was displeased with the service the company has provided “for the last 10 to 12 years.” Chairman James Reino Jr. said he wasn’t aware of any complaints about Trans-Med’s service, but he and other supervisors took the opportunity to ask Prohaska more questions about aspects of the company, including issues of staffing and vehicle availability. Prohaska said the company has 26 vehicles and more than 160 employees serving much of Luzerne County. He maintained that a vehicle is always available in the Back Mountain area from a Dallas station. He also said if the switch were made from Trans-Med to Wyoming Hose Company No. 1, response times would suffer for any calls made past the Burger King on Route 309. Robert Smith of the Kingston Township Ambulance and Rescue Association said the two facilities both face challenges to re-

UP NEXT

The Kingston Township Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting at 8 a.m. May 22 to conduct the annual spring road inspection. The next work session will be held at 7 p.m. June 6 and the next regular meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. June 8 in the municipal building.

sponse time due to the geographic location of the township. He said the Wyoming Hose Company No. 1 would be quicker to respond to calls made on Carverton Road because of its location on Eighth Street. Smith also said the Trans-Med services cover a larger portion of the county including the West Side and Wilkes-Barre Township, making it difficult to guarantee consistent coverage in the Back Mountain. “You can’t guarantee you’ll have a vehicle there 100 percent of the time,” Prohaska said. “If anyone tells you that, it’s just not possible.” Sebastian said the board will need more time to conduct further research before making a decision. “We want to look into it a little more,” Sebastian said. “We want to do what we feel is best and make sure our residents are taken care of if a call comes in.” The board also tabled a decision to transfer a liquor license to

In other news, the board: • approved a state-mandated storm water ordinance that would require new dwellings to have stringent storm water management plans. Box and Supervisor Frank Natitus voted against the measure. • approved a resolution to protest the increase rates of Pennsylvania American Water Co. • revised inter-governmental cooperation agreement between four of the municipalities involved in the Back Mountain Community Partnership to purchase a shared speed trailer at a cost to the township of $1,725 was approved. The purchase was approved last year, but the trailer’s price increased before the partnership could purchase the equipment. • approved a waiver of the pavement cut permits for the Aqua PA Sunrise Estate water main replacement project, but Box said the board should not consider similar requests in the future. “With our budget restrictions, I

Resident Keith Murray, a longtime member of the state Liquor Control Board, said during a public hearing on the matter that selling liquor on a property where liquid fuels are contained is not permitted by the control board. Solicitor Benjamin Jones III said there may need to be a subdivision of the property if Murray is correct, which would be a township matter. “This could be a problem,” he said. “I don’t know if it could be caught here. If it involves land use, that would be here.” Sebastian announced a Route 309 corridor study will not be conducted by the state Department of Transportation for another two years. Sebastian said this is because PennDOT is currently studying other intersections in the Back Mountain, including the five-corner area in Dallas and the intersection of Upper Demunds and Hildebrandt roads in Dallas

don’t believe we need to do this anymore,” said Reino. “Every dollar we get gives us the opportunity to do something.” • approved one more fire hydrant for a total of five to be installed on the Sunrise Estates project. • approved the township manager to make revisions of its public exhibitions and amusement ordinance. Reino said this is because the ordinance, which hasn’t been updated in a few years, does not adequately address larger events in the township including fireworks displays and events at Hillside Farms. • opened bids for the summer recreation program transportation, but will not award them until May 22. Bidders included Kabata Transportation of Shickshinny, Parish Limousines of Jenkins Township, Student Transportation of America of Moosic, Starfursky Transportation, Inc. of Archbald, and White Transit School Buses of Nanticoke. • granted permission to the American Red Cross to use the township’s meeting room for a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 16. • awarded a $250 check to the Dallas High School Lock-In Committee.
