Residents demand water testing Chief officials grilled after drilling mud is spilled in township. By CAMILLE FIOTI Dallas Post Correspondent

Concerned about the effects that drilling mud spills may have on several wells near natural gas sites, residents and township officials said Tuesday that they want the water tested. Representatives from the state Department of Environmental Protection and


Board opts to stay in trust until June 2013

Chief Gathering/PVR Partners fielded questions regarding the recent incidents during which water, containing bentonite clay, erupted through the ground. Both DEP and Chief maintain that the incidents did harm the environment and that the mud, which isn’t toxic, was contained and removed by a vacuum truck. The locations of the incidents, which occurred on May 1 and 2, are in the wetlands area off Kunkle-Alderson and Upper Demunds roads. The leaks, referred to as “inadvertent returns” are not uncommon, and can happen when the pressure from the drill

pushes mud through up from fractures in the earth’s upper crust, said Marc B. Cooley, DEP Environmental Group Manager for the Scranton district office. He added that Chief is “addressing the incidents adequately.” “Shouldn’t the municipality have been alerted?” supervisor Liz Martin asked Cooley, pointing out that she was told of the incidents two days after the fact by a resident. Cooley said the responsibility of reporting incidents falls on the shoulders of the operator, but that he’d see what he can do about notifying the township directly in the future.

Borough engineer Tom Doughton said there are several different kinds of bentonite, but the one he’s most familiar with is commonly used to seal the bottoms of landfills, reservoirs and along house foundations. “Anyone who has had a home well drilled in the last 20 years, you probably had it sealed with bentonite,” he said. “I don’t want people to leave here tonight thinking they’re going to die from bentonite in their water. That’s not the case.” Martin said she’s concerned about the See WATER, Page 9

Board will keep dental and vision benefits, but will seek health care elsewhere. By SARAH HITE

The Lake-Lehman School Board has found a way to remain in the Northeastern Pennsylvania School Health Trust while also saving $1 million per year. The district voted 8-1 Monday to keep dental and vision benefits but seek health care services elsewhere. Solicitor John Audi said that as a health trust member, the district has the right to only utilize the organization’s dental and vision insurance. Board member Walter Glogowski was the lone opponent of the measure. The health trust is a consortium of school districts formed to collectively purchase insurance at lower rates. The board also voted 8-1to submit a letter of intent to withdraw from the health trust by June 30, 2013. Glogowski also voted against this measure. Superintendent James McGovern told residents at a town hall meeting earlier this month that he asked the heath trust to change its bylaws that require at least a year’s notice for withdrawal from the organization, but the motion was voted down. The board approved its proposed final budget 6-3 at the meeting, which revealed a $1.8 million shortfall. Business Manager Tom Melone said the district’s fund balance, akin to a savings account, will total about $2 million at the end of this year and will help keep the district afloat for the 2012-13 school year. Board members Karen Masters, David Paulauskas and Bo Kreller voted against the budget. The budget, which features $25.7 million in revenue and $27.5 million in expenditures, will include a 4.26 percent increase in property taxes for Luzerne County residents, resulting in an additional $53 for an assessed property value of $140,000.

Hooked on fun By SARAH HITE

Damp weather and a few dark clouds couldn’t keep about 135 youths and their families from participating in the Sixth Annual Kids Fishing Day hosted by the Back Mountain Police Association on May 5 at Frances Slocum State Park in Kingston Township. Ross Piazza, Back Mountain Police Association vice president, said the event is sponsored by local businesses and residents to provide a day of fishing and activity for children at no cost. Dennis Bonvie, of Swoyersville, and his 7-year-old son Rhys chatted with Joe Shiskowki, of Shavertown, and his 7-year-old son Joe Jr. near the lake just before the fishing began. It was Bonvie’s third time attending the event with his son, who loves fish-

ing, even though Bonvie wasn’t always a fisherman himself. “I did some fishing,” he said. “But for him, it’s all about the thrill of the catch.” Shiskowski enjoys watching his son fish because of the excitement he sees in his son’s eyes. “To a kid, every fish is a big fish,” said Shiskowski. Piazza said the police association wanted to start the event to help children find an inexpensive hobby that would allow them to spend more time with their families. “We do a bike giveaway, and one of the things you have to do to be entered is bring a grandparent,” said Piazza, an officer of the state Fish and Boat Commission. The kids also received fishing instruction from certified teachers, See HOOKED, Page 10

Thanks to a supply drive and other projects sponsored by Leadership Wilkes-Barre participants, Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge owner Marge Bart won’t have to worry about visitors going to the no-kill shelter at all hours of the day, or whether there will be enough cat food for the coming weeks. After all, it can be tough to keep track of everything as the only employee of a shelter that houses hundreds of animals throughout the year. “I think they gave us a three to six-month supply of cleaning products,” said Bart, who lives at the shelter in Franklin Township. Bart was presented with the supplies at a picnic to honor volunteers at the Lockville Road shelter on April 29. Rachel Rybicki, of Dallas, said the Leadership Wilkes-Barre group chose Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge as its focus because most of the group’s members are animal lovers. “Many people don’t realize the stories that go along with the animals,” said Rybicki, who represents Penn State Wilkes-Barre in the leadership group. Rybicki said a dog named Marcos has come to the shelter not once, but two times. Both times, Marcos had been poisoned by his previous owners. “Now he needs to be on a special diet,” said Rybicki. “Stories like that that make you want to help.” The group installed signs on the property that outline the shelter’s visiting hours. Bart said the shelter has grown so drastically since its creation more than 10 years ago and keeping up with the shelter’s needs can be a difficult task for one person to manage. “The sign we desperately needed,” she said. “We’ve grown so very See VOLUNTEERS, Page 13

Grange gets help The state Grange revitalizes Mountain Grange Post 567 with a little local help. By SARAH HITE

See TRUST, Page 10

Mountain Grange No. 567 on West Eighth Street in Kingston Township is going back to its roots. The Grange post’s membership has been dwindling for the last 50 years, said recently-

elected president Carol Swanson, and she hopes the restructuring of the Grange will renew interest in the organization while maintaining the values and traditions upon which the Grange started. The Grange is a family fraternal organization that promotes the betterment of rural America through community service, education, legislation and fellowship, according to the state Grange website. Post No. 567 was originally started in the late 1800s and,

though the building burned down in 1987, it was rebuilt in 1988, thanks to donations from the community. Swanson, of Trucksville, has been a member of the Grange since as far back as she can remember. Her parents and grandparents were Grangers, too. See GRANGE, Page 13

Supervisors approve Bulford sewer plan By SARAH HITE

The board of supervisors approved a sewage facilities plan and addressed residents’ comments about the township police force at a meeting Monday. The board adopted a resolution affirming that the township has an official sewage facilities plan for the Bulford Farms sewer system project. Chairman John Wilkes Jr. said the township had to adopt the

resolution in order to get approval for the project from the state Department of Environmental Protection. Wilkes said residents have had questions about whether the police force in the township will disband. One of the township’s full-time police officers recently resigned, and the township is seeking aid from neighboring departments to fill the gap. Wilkes said the department is not disbanding and supervisors are looking to “increase the service, not decrease it.”


WVSA law approved, hearing scheduled

The board also approved a motion authorizing the solicitor to take legal action against Larksville Borough for outstanding payments related to liquid fuels funds used to maintain Steele Road. Jackson Township maintained the entire road and was paid $400 in liquid fuels funds annually by Larksville Borough for work performed on the section located within the borough. The township ended its 39year agreement with the neighboring borough late last year because Larksville Borough has

not made a payment since 2005. Last month, Solicitor Jeff Malak said the township received a partial payment for this year’s maintenance. Malak said the township just wants to ensure it receives the remaining payment. In other news, the board… • Authorized the Back Mountain Memorial Library to use the light tower at the annual auction. • Approved Kingston Township’s request to join the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency and ap-

pointed John Turner as an assistant chief. • Authorized police officers Leo Letoski and Tim Coffay to attend a state police firearms instructors’ class. • Authorized Boy Scout Troop 146 to house its training trailer at the municipal building. • Authorized the Girl Scout troop to hold a cookout at the recreation pavilion. • The next Jackson Township Board of Supervisors meeting will be held at 6 p.m. June 4 in the municipal building.

Back Mountain ride benefits Habitat


Council approved a sanitary authority ordinance and scheduled a public hearing to discuss changes to the flood plain ordinance at a meeting Tuesday. The countywide Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority ordinance creates different regulations and fee schedules for municipalities that contribute to the sewer system. Council Vice President Francis Kopko said the hearing for the flood plain ordinance, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 19, is to discuss changes required for the ordinance to comply with state mandates. Council also voted to waive zoning fees that would be required for the fire department to place generators on its property. Secretary Susan Sutton read a report compiled by Police Chief Charles Musial with a special statement regarding reports of suspicious activity. Sutton read that Musial received a call from a woman who had seen someone stealing items from a neighbor’s backyard, but did not call 911 because she “didn’t want to bother anyone.” Sutton read that Musial asks everyone to report suspicious activity. Councilman Ed Kelly announced the Harveys Lake Fire Department will hold its annual dance benefit on July 28 at Irem Temple Country Club in Dallas. He said it is the 90th anniversary for the dance that will feature live music. Councilwoman Michell’e Boice urged residents to attend Lake-Lehman School Board meetings to learn more about the budgeting process and proposed tax increases. The next Harveys Lake Borough council meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. June 19 in the municipal building.

Council approves road projects, discusses wildlife sanctuary plans By SARAH HITE

Council on Wednesday approved several motions related to road repairs. Approved projects to be funded by state liquid fuels funds in 2012 include storm water infrastructure improvements in the area of Fawn Drive, Whitetail Drive and Hickory Road; resurfacing of the portion of White Birch Lane located in the borough; and resurfacing of Mill Street between state Route 415 and Woodlawn Avenue. Council awarded bids to Adamski Excavating & Paving Inc. for storm water pipe repair work on Monroe Avenue in the amount of $2,391 and storm water inlet and basin work on Lake Street in the amount of $1,585. Both projects are funded by Federal Emergency Management Agency due to the declaration of disaster from Tropical Storm Lee in September. Borough Manager Tracey Carr said the borough can move ahead with plans to make street and storm water infrastruc-

ture improvements to Wellington Avenue with funding from the Luzerne County Office of Community Development. Council also rehired Frank Stanish as a part-time road department employee at a rate of $11.28 per hour for 24 hours per week. Residents asked council about a proposed bird sanctuary that is planned for private property located on Pineview Road. Resident Art Prutzman told council about the project, which consists of several lots on Pineview Road that were owned by the late Paul Duda. Duda’s brother, Andrew, is trying to form a nonprofit organization to maintain the land as a wildlife sanctuary open to the public. Carr said Andrew Duda has not presented anything to council about the sanctuary. She said she would have to review the zoning ordinance to determine whether such a project would be allowed in a residential area. Resident Drina Casey asked whether she could place “no trespassing” signs on her property, which abuts the proposed

sanctuary area. Carr said Casey would not need permission from council to put up signs on her own property. The Stravinskys of Lehman Avenue approached council about receiving permission for UGI Energy Services to cut into the road in order to connect their residence to a natural gas system. Rosemary Stravinsky said the couple’s oil furnace broke and now they would like to switch to natural gas. Carr said the road was paved in 2010 according to a borough ordinance, resurfaced roads cannot be cut for non-emergency issues for five years. She said the situation did not meet the definition of an emergency. Prutzman also asked council there were stringent regulations on putting a shed on his property but one of his neighbors built a shed in the middle of borough property without any permits. Carr said Prutzman would need a zoning permit to construct a shed, which would also need to adhere to setback requirements.

Councilman Brian Stevens said it appears the neighbor’s shed was in violation of the zoning code, and Carr said she would ask Code Enforcement Officer Carl Alber to investigate. In other news, council… • Approved and authorized the payment of $5,820 for the rental of 12 40-yard containers used for the 2012 Spring Cleanup to Stell Enterprises Inc. of Plains Township. • Authorized the borough manager to renew applicable insurance coverage relating to the summer recreation program. • Authorized the borough engineer to redesign and solicit bids to replace two damaged traffic signal mast arms. Carr said the signals need to be redesigned because they are prone to being hit by tractor trailers. • Authorized the borough manager to solicit proposals for a new copy machine in the administrative office. • Authorized the borough manager to solicit proposals for a new back-up generator to be installed in the municipal building.

Talk attempts to thwart bullying

Etiquette expert Jill Evans Kryston talks to girls at TUMC salad supper. By SARAH HITE

A bullying prevention program was hosted by Jill Evans Kryston at the annual Women’s Salad Supper sponsored by the Susanna Children and Family Fellowship group on May 6 at the Trucksville United Methodist Church education center. Women and school-age children attended the luncheon, during which Evans Kryston spoke about the increased instances of bullying in schools and how students can deal with bullying behavior. Evans Kryston, owner of Defining Manners: A School of Contemporary Protocol in Shavertown, said etiquette is about honing relationships, and bullying is just the opposite. “Etiquette can be used to change that bullying behavior,” she said. Evans Kryston said bullies thrive on the imbalance of power and she emphasizes that focusing on others’ feelings can help deter some of their bullying tendencies. “There’s a wrong way and a right way to deal with bullying,” she said. She said most of what contributes to a person’s success in life is how fine-tuned their people skills are – not just education and technical skills. Dallas Middle School student Ivy Chamberlain, 14, of Trucksville, believes bullying is a problem in younger children because of insecurities. “I see it all the time,” she said. “With girls, they do it mostly behind each other’s backs or most girls bully online. I see a lot of boys bullying girls, too.” Chamberlain even said she’s been bullied before, but mostly when she was a student in elementary school. “People would say ‘you’re fat’ and other really nasty things to me,” she said. “It was mostly in like fifth grade.” Though she would occasionally bully others, Chamberlain re-

Kiera Gross,16, of Trucksville, doesn’t see a lot of bullying at Dallas High School because the administration is very pro-active in combating the issue. “We have a lot of programs about it,” she said. “I don’t really see it at school.” Teacher Amy Burke, of Kingston, sees bullying in schools all the time and believes administrators need to open their eyes more to students’ concerns. “Schools say they have a no bullying policy, but it’s not true,” she said.

Teens may begin reading and reviewing beginning June 14. Forms are available in the YA and Children’s departments. Each time a review is completed, teens are entered to win a gift certificate to be awarded at the conclusion of the summer reading program. The more teens read and review, the more chances they have to win the gift certificate.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It was British mathematician, philosopher and social critic Bertrand Russell who made the following sage observation: “Every advance in civilization has been denounced as unnatural while it was recent.” • If you’re like most adults, you have approximately 1,000 hairs per square inch of your scalp. That might seem like a lot, but consider the otter: Its 1 million hairs per square inch of skin make it the owner of the densest fur in the world. • Before the 19th century, it was declasse to wear clothing with pockets. All the well-dressed members of the upper classes had servants to carry things for them. • The next time you’re out for a walk in the country, kneel down and scoop up a cupful of soil. You might be surprised to learn that that single cup of dirt could hold more bacteria than there are people on the planet. • Those who study such things say that more Frisbee-type discs are sold every year in the U.S. than footballs, baseballs and basketballs combined. • People sometimes fight over the silliest things. Countries, too. For example, in 1925, Greece and Bulgaria were at war for 10 days, all because of a dog. Evidently, tensions were high in October of that year, when a Greek soldier’s dog ran away from him - across the border. The soldier chased his dog into Bulgaria, where he was shot dead by a sentry. In retaliation, the Greek army invaded, and the League of Nations had to step in to restore order to the region.

YOUR SPACE Pat Giordano, of Harveys Lake, shot this photo of a water bird called an Anhinga. Unlike ducks, the Anhinga is not able to waterproof its feathers using oil. Consequently, feathers can become waterlogged, making the bird barely buoyant. It has a very long neck and often swims with only the neck above water. When swimming in this style, the name “Snakebird” is apparent, since only the colored neck appears above water the bird looks like a snake ready to strike. When necessary, the Anhinga will dry out its wings and feathers. As seen in the picture, it will perch for long periods with its wings spread to allow the drying process. If it attempts to fly while its wings are wet, it has great difficulty getting off the water.

tion in property taxes due to budget rebalancing. The board voted to terminate its lease with Wee Care Foundation and advertise for bids to daycare facility construction proposals. Board President Mark Kornoski said the board wants to determine whether the project would be a feasible revenue source for the district. Paulauskas made a few comments to the audience after McGovern read the board’s agenda. “…Not everything that the government or Governor Corbett is asking us to do is bad,” he said. “He’s asking us to look at our budgets, to look at our staffing, to actually run our school districts like a business to provide a product in a cost-effective and efficient manner.” He told the audience that the teachers’ union was not supportive of the health care changes prior to the meeting. “I find that reprehensible that something like that would happen, especially when we are offering them, the teachers, the same or at least comparable benefits to what they have,” he said. “If we’re unable to do this, we are being forced into looking at possibly reducing staff here. This is not only going to affect those teachers that may end up losing their positions, but it will end up affecting our students because it’s probably…going to result in increased class sizes. We need to work together.” Heather Wertman, president of the Lake-Lehman Education Association, said the union was willing to discuss cost-saving measures with administration, but health care needs to be negotiated. “…To say that the union is not willing to work with this board is very misleading and inaccurate,” she said. “…But remember that health care is required to be negotiated and the board cannot make a unilateral decision…” Audi said there has been negotiation on finding comparable health care services for district employees. Also, Nancy Kohl, regional vice president of The Nutrition Group, told board members about upcoming changes to the school lunch program mandated by the federal government. They include different requirements for students to eat fruits and vegetables, as well as new sodium and whole grain requirements. The changes will increase the cost of school lunches and also change what constitutes a reimbursable meal for the district. In other news, the board honored several students, including those who participated in the regional and state History Day competition. History teacher Mike Novrocki said two projects will compete in the national competition in Maryland in June, including Shelby Foster for an individual historical paper and Hannah Cross, Ceila Fine and Shauna Lahey for their group exhibit. The project completed by Cross, Fine and Lahey was also chosen to represent Pennsylvania to be displayed at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. The board honored the indoor color guard for placing second at the Atlantic Coast band championships in Wildwood, N.J. recently, and Rebecca Rosser earned the all-state band recognition for voice. The board also… • Accepted the resignation of in-school suspension monitor John McDonald effective May 18. • Ratified the appointment of Caroline Ciak of Hunlock Creek as a nurse substitute within the district. • Awarded bids to Rohrer Bus Sales of Duncannon, Pa., for 9passenger and 24-passenger buses at a cost of $28,760 and $40,900 respectively, plus 1.9 percent for Visa processing fee for each vehicle. • Voted 6-3 to renew the food service contract for 2012-13 school year. Board members Andrew Salko, James Welby and Masters voted against the measure. • Appointed Britt D. Trumbower of Small Business Insurance Services Inc., Bear Creek, as broker of record for district health insurance services effective immediately. • The next Lake-Lehman School Board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. June 18 in the junior/senior high school library.

Heroes at home

The Dallas Lions, in partnership with Frontier Communications, has concluded the 2012 sponsorship campaign for the Hometown Hero project which honors veterans, past and present, from the Back Mountain area. The Hometown Hero project was originally planned to be a one-year undertaking by the Dallas Lions in 2011, but after last year’s successful banner program, the Dallas Lions received additional requests from friends and family members to sponsor a veteran. The banners will be displayed just before Memorial Day on street poles throughout Dallas Borough and conclude on Veteran’s Day. The banners will then be given to family members and/ or sponsors. This year, an additional 30 banners will be on display with the original 27 banners from last year. Another addition to this year’s banner program is women veterans who served our country. Although the banners represent individual veterans, the Lions hope the display represents all area veterans past and present who have served and sacrificed to preserve and defend our freedoms. The Dallas Lions Club thanks the Dallas Borough Council for providing the opportunity to pursue the project. Additional thanks goes to Frontier Communications for placing and removing the banners. The Lions would also like to thank the sponsors of the banners for their contribution to the successful Hometown Hero program. The Dallas Lions stated at the beginning of the project that this was not a fund raiser for the organization. Any and all proceeds realized after all expenses will be donated to the 1st Lieutenant Michael J. Cleary Foundation which helps returning veterans in a wide variety of ways: rehabilitation, work with handicapped veterans, and assisting families of fallen servicemen and service women.

made fish-themed T-shirts and learned about fire safety during the daylong event. All supplies, including poles, bait and lures, were donated from local businesses and lunch was provided by Ranch Wagon. Piazza also said the event encourages member officers to come dressed in full uniform, which allows youngsters to interact and become more comfortable around police officers. The Back Mountain Police Association consists of 21 local and state departments throughout the Back Mountain and West Side areas of Luzerne County. “This gives kids the experience of being assisted by law enforcement,” said Piazza. “We want them to know they don’t have to be afraid.” This year the event was held in honor of the late Rusty Flack, who Piazza said was a great supporter of the police association and the community as a whole. Avid fisher Mandy Boyko, of Dallas, took her 6year-old son Cameron and her husband Jeremy to the event, hoping to bag some of the trophy trout with which the lake was stocked for the event. “He’s been fishing ever since he’s been able to walk,” Mandy Boyko said of her son. “I find it to be peaceful and relaxing, but you never know what’s going to come out of the water.” Mandy Boyko said Cameron was so keen on catching a fish one year, he wouldn’t let go of the line and was pulled into the water. “He loves to catch and see the fish up close,” she said. “I like to say hi to every fish,” added Cameron Boyko. The Conway family of Pittston couldn’t wait to get started at the annual event – it’s the only time of the year the family fishes together. “We caught one last year but it wasn’t big enough to keep,” said Maria Conway. But the day is more about family time than it is about catching the biggest fish. “It’s kind of like a big family thing – it’s an outdoor activity when all the kids can get out and be together,” she said. “But, hopefully, we can catch one fish.” Piazza said the annual event keeps the memories of fishing with his grandfather alive, and he hopes to help create those memories for other young people. “I don’t always get to go out, but I’ve always enjoyed fishing,” he said. “This creates some nice memories of being with family.”

DHS student group presents awards Student Leadership in Civics of Dallas High School has announced it will award 15 volunteers with the President’s Volunteer Service Gold Award, a national honor offered in recognition of volunteer service. Established in 2003, the award is available on an annual basis to individuals, groups and families who have met or exceeded requirements for volunteer service and have demonstrated exemplary citizenship through volunteering. As one of thousands of certifying organizations participating in the award program, Student Leadership in Civics of Dallas High School confers the award to recognize the outstanding achievements of

its students and moderators. Student Leadership In Civics of Dallas High School was formed in September after students had the opportunity to attend a leadership workshop with then First Lady of Pennsylvania Judge Rendell. During its third year, the club has participated in the Pennsylvania Mock Election, volunteered with the Commission on Economic Opportunity as part of National Make A Difference Day, hosted a community-wide Veterans Day commemoration ceremony, volunteered at Shoemaker Hub as part of Martin Luther King and Global Youth Services Day, implemented a school-wide Martin Luther King assembly, conducted a voter registration


drive, participated in Relay for Life and will finish its busy year with the US Post Offices Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The Student Leadership in Civics Organization of Dallas High School will be honored this year at a Recognition Brunch set for noon on Sunday, June 3 at the East Mountain Inn, Wilkes-Barre where they will be presented with the Presidential Volunteer Service Gold Awards as well as recognition from local, state and federal officials. Attorney Robert D. Schaub, immediate past president of the Luzerne County Bar Association, will be the keynote speaker for the event.

Lake Lehman High School senior Paige Vacante, of Lehman, has been named the winner of the SAFE Prom Pledge by Fellerman and Ciarimboli law firm. She won the grand prize by signing the Safe Prom Pledge, committing to a prom night free of drinking and driving. Vacante and five of her friends will receive an all-expense paid limousine, provided by Touch of Class Limousine, Inc. of Edwardsville, on her prom night. She also won a dress from Place One in Wilkes-Barre, a tuxedo rental from Tuxedo Junction in Hanover, and a custom corsage from Mattern’s in Kingston. Fellerman & Ciarmboli initi-

ated The Safe Prom Pledge in order to promote a safe prom night and graduation season for area high school students. By signing the pledge, students commit to a night free of drinking and driving and are educated about the dangers of drinking and driving and the Pennsylvania laws with regards to driving while intoxicated. The attorneys, Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli, have been speaking at area high schools, including Lake-Lehman High School, about the dangers of drinking and driving and the importance of sound decision making during prom and graduation celebrations.

fast and we needed visiting hours because I live here. People stop by at all hours and we can’t get everything done.” Bart said part of the problem, too, is the growing need for more volunteers at the shelter. Currently, Bart has about 10 “very dedicated” volunteers and 30 “off and on” volunteers. “That’s typical for any organization, but we need more,” she said. Bart also said the Leadership Wilkes-Barre group sponsored the installation of air conditioning and electrical upgrades in the Kitty Cottage in addition to the food and supply drive, which was held at Pet Supplies Plus in Wilkes-Barre. Theresa Sufleta, of Sweet Valley, has been volunteering at Blue Chip for three years and wishes she could do more. “When I get stressed out, it’s a good feeling to be here, knowing I’m helping the animals,” said Sufleta. George Layaou, of Franklin Township, said after he retired, he had nothing better to do, but he chose to volunteer at Blue Chip because of its mission and the people involved. “The people here seem to have a goal - they aren’t doing it because they want to be seen doing it,” he said. “They aren’t doing it for the fame and fortune.” Layaou said sometimes it’s a difficult job – especially since most of the animals who come to Blue Chip do so in less-than-happy circumstances. He said one night his son, a state trooper, was called out to investigate a dog that had been thrown off a bridge. Layaou said the owners had expected the dog to hit water and drown, but instead the dog hit a pole and land-

“I remember the pork and sauerkraut suppers when I was little,” she. “They were always served family-style.” Swanson said the Grange post recently had members of the state Grange attend a meeting to revitalize the post, including setting meeting dates and trying to boost membership. She said the Grange previously met on a haphazard basis, and the group did not strictly follow Grange requirements. “I said, if I don’t do something, we’re going to lose this,” she said. Currently the group has 17 members, and 10 members just joined at the May meeting. “This excites me because there’s just so much to offer people,” Swanson said of the Grange. In addition to providing outlets for families to spend time together, Swanson said the Grange is known for its grassroots activism and had an important role in women’s suffrage. “They always try to keep it half men and half women,” she said. “During the women’s rights movement, women could vote in the Grange but they couldn’t vote elsewhere.” But the Grange has changed some, too. Anyone can join the Grange – it’s not just a rural-based organization anymore. The Grange is Christian-based, but Swanson said members of other religions are welcome to join. “To hold a meeting, you must have an American flag and an open Bible present,”



she said. Swanson wants to promote values and traditions on which the Grange was founded, such as hometown roots and family. “Honesty, integrity, patriotism, love of country – these are the things we learned at our mothers’ knees,” she. She hopes the Grange can provide activities for families and children in the community as a way to help youngsters learn from their elders. “My sister said she would go to the Grange and a woman there would teach her and othBILL TARUTIS/ FOR THE DALLAS POST er children how to cook,” said Swanson. “She taught my sister Mountain Grange 567 President Carol Swanson leafs through how to make salads.” Grange literature at the Grange Hall in Kingston Township. Swanson also would like to see the Grange provide services to the community, such as making care packages for those in the military or teaching locals how to tend a garden. “This is a place where people can get together and do activities that are inexpensive,” she said.

ed on a road beneath the bridge. Layaou said the county in which the dog was found had no animal control services, so the dog was taken to Blue Chip. Within a week, the dog, which Bart named Gigi after Layaou and his son George Jr., was adopted. “We have 30-some dogs – we’re at maximum capacity – and many of them are older dogs that have been abused,” said Bart. “Everyone doesn’t need a puppy or a kitten. We have a lot of older animals here than can be alone for eight to 10 hours a day and would love to have you come home.”
