Despite heartbreaking obstacles, DHS senior is facing graduation head on By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

BILL TARUTIS/ FOR THE DALLAS POST

Dallas High School senior Marilyn Mizenko describes the loss of both of her parents as Fellowship Church senior pastor Marc Ramirez listens.

Marilyn Mizenko has had more difficult life experiences before the age of 18 than many have had in a lifetime. The teen from Dallas, who is preparing to graduate high school this month and attend college in the fall, has turned losing both of her parents within a

Club is seeking veterans

year into a positive experience she wants to spend her life sharing with others. Mizenko’s mother, Ann Lynn, had suffered from depression since Marilyn was in fifth grade, and on May 19, 2010, the mother of three took her own life. Marilyn’s sister and brother, who are 14 and 12 years older than her, respectively, were living thousands of miles away at the time.

Marilyn relied heavily on her father for support while she continued to work hard in school and develop a closer relationship with God through the Fellowship Church on Hildebrandt Road. “Then, later that year, my dad was suffering from a nagging cough,” she said. “We took him to the emergency room and they said it was food poisoning.” After a few more tests, it was

revealed that Marilyn’s father, Paul had stage IV esophageal cancer that eventually metastasized into a brain tumor the size of a grapefruit. Chemotherapy helped a little, though Marilyn said her father began to behave very different in early 2011. “He was confused – he couldn’t even write the names of people we had known for years,” See SENIOR, Page 13

REMEMBERING THE FALLEN

By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

The Student Leadership in Civics group at Dallas High School is looking for a few good men (and women). The club is getting a military honor roll project off the ground, thanks to help from the Back Mountain Ecumenical Men’s Group. The project aims to honor military personnel from the Dallas School District who have earned Gold Stars or Purple Hearts. Gold Stars are awarded to families of those U.S. military personnel killed in action, and Purple Hearts are given to those individuals who have been killed or wounded while serving on or after April 5, 1917 in the U.S. military. The names, ranks and dates served of the military servicemen and women will be displayed in the high school. Club leaders, 18-year-olds Angelina Hoidra and Aaron Weir, have begun the task of searching for those award recipients, but it has been a difficult process. “There are a few online databases, but the best way to find information is to have the information donated to us,” said Weir, of Dallas. So far, the search has only given the club three or four names, and it can be difficult to verify the information without family members. “The most important thing is that we don’t want to exclude anyone,” said Weir, vice president of the club. He said the project’s criteria is limited because the school wanted to keep the amount of those honored to a manageable number. “We have limited resources, but we still wanted to do something very nice that’s respectful and significant to honor the military,” said Weir. Hoidra, of Dallas, said the club was formed three years ago and has five main goals - civics, serSee CLUB, Page 13

Where have all the flowers gone at Chapel Lawn? By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Sandy Cooper has always been taught that placing flowers on a gravesite is a sign of respect and caring for the deceased. “My mother died when I was 1 year old and my dad used to always take me to the cemetery, and I kept up the tradition,” said the Chase resident. But now Cooper is worried she won’t be able to show her respect for family members buried in the Chapel Lawn Memorial Park in Dallas Township, as the flowers she buys for her fatherin-law’s, mother-in-law’s and brother-in-law’s graves keep disappearing. “This has been happening for the last three years,” she said. “I’m just wondering if it happens to anyone else.” Cooper often buys ornate arrangements of fresh flowers for the graves in honor of various ho-

lidays. The cemetery, located off State Route 415, has plenty of artificial flowers dotting the 16acre site, but fresh flowers are not uncommon. The latest event happened on Mother’s Day. Cooper placed a long, rectangular flower box filled with a mix of purple flowers near her mother-in-law’s grave in the afternoon on Saturday, May 12 and, by early morning on Monday, May 14, the flowers were gone. Cemetery policy states flowers are removed from grave sites after 10 days for lawn care purposes. Leonard, a Chapel Lawn maintenance employee who did not wish to reveal his full name, has begun posting signs warning trespassers of video surveillance in an attempt to prevent more

flowers from being stolen. He said more people, especially teens, tend to frequent the cemetery during the warmer months, but strong winds or even deer could be the culprit. Leonard said he hasn’t had many complaints about stolen flowers, but wishes to prevent more incidents from occurring. Cooper was concerned about not placing flowers on her family’s graves for Memorial Day her father-in-law was a former chief of police and her brother-inlaw a former assistant fire chief, both in Jackson Township. “I don’t know what I’m going to do,” she said. “It breaks my BILL TARUTIS/ FOR THE DALLAS POST husband’s heart, too.” Leonard said once more signs Sandy Cooper kneels by the graves of her in-laws where flowers are posted, he’ll begin to ask the were removed soon after placement in Chapel Lawn Memorial local police department to patrol Park in Dallas Township. the area.

More Knights join elite ranks By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

It’s been a big year for John Miliauskas. The retired Lake-Lehman band director, often cited as the “Father of Lake-Lehman Band,” was inducted into the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Hall of Fame in April and LakeLehman Band alumni will host a daylong program in his honor on June 16 at the high school. But on May 26, Miliauskas joined ranks with a small, select group as a meritorious member of the Knights of the Roundtable program during a brunch at Irem Temple Country Club. The program, in its second year, aims to honor former LakeLehman students and employees who have had a positive effect on the community to inspire current students to become better citizens. Other meritorious inductees included Joseph Lopasky, a standout football player at LakeLehman during the 1950s and the most valuable player at the 1962 Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, Fla., who died last fall; Ricky Bonomo, a former wrestler at Lake-Lehman who, with his twin brother Rocky, earned several district, state and national champion-

ships; and Brian Kelly, a high school and college soccer star who earned national recognition for his skills in the early 1990s and turned pro later in his soccer career. Honorary inductees included the first principal at Lake-Lehman Junior/Senior High School, Lester Squier, who died in 1989; and Delmer Giberson, a former chemistry teacher at the district who died of a heart attack at the age of 44 in 1987. Miliauskas attended the brunch with his family, including son John III, a band director at Towson University in Maryland. The younger Miliauskas said his father inspired his entire career, including his first instrument

choice. “I played the trumpet when I was 7 or 8, but I turned to the French horn in high school and that’s what I majored in college,” he said. John Miliauskas III said growing up in the Lake-Lehman band room, he had his choice of musical instruments with which he could experiment. “I had a different favorite instrument every week,” he said.

The elder Miliauskas enjoyed the discipline of music and trying to mold young musicians during his 35-year tenure at the school. “I’m still teaching and I pick of the horn every day,” said the accomplished trumpeter. Miliauskas said the students, administration and parents made his career a pleasure every day for nearly four decades. “I never went to work,” said the See KNIGHTS, Page 13

ifth-grade students from the Dallas and Wycallis Elementary Schools joined together for a mixer on May 18 at the Dallas Elementary School. They ate lunch together in the DES cafeteria, then enjoyed games and activities outside on the lawn. Races, relays, cooperative activities as well as popsicles were on the agenda. The purpose of the event was to get the students from the two schools together for a social event to allow mingling as next year they will all be classmates at the middle school.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver • It was, unsurprisingly, comedian and writer W.C. Fields who said, “I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.” • Even if you haven’t heard the They Might Be Giants song "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" you are probably aware that the Turkish metropolis has undergone name changes throughout its long history. It seems that when the name was Constantinople, it was common for residents of the area to refer to things "in the city," which in the Aegean dialect of Greek is pronounced "is tan polin." Eventually the name stuck, and in 1930 Turkish authorities formally adopted the name Istanbul. • The giant squid has the distinction of possessing the largest eyes of any animal -- they’re as big as pie plates. • For a queen bee, laying 3,000 eggs is all in a day’s work. • Evidencing a drastic change in the nature of the United States since its agrarian beginnings, today only a quarter of Americans live in rural areas. • The next time you’re in the jungle observing gorillas, be sure to notice if one sticks out its tongue. That means it’s angry. • In the filming of the original "Star Trek" television series, the ship’s transporter was used simply to cut costs. With it, characters could move from one set to another without having to shoot costly landing scenes. As a side note, the sparkling effect that could be seen when characters were transported was created by aluminum dust.

Emotions run the gamut for former coach Ted Jackson Sr. at the Dallas High School football reunion held May 27 at Irem Temple Country Club.

DHS gridders gather, remember Program at Irem Temple highlights coaching career of Ted Jackson Sr. By SARAH HITE shite@mydallaspost.com

Although the coaching style of Ted Jackson Sr. has been called many things, one word that came to mind on May 27 was “consistent.” How else could one explain why hundreds of ex-footballers aged 20, 30 and 40 agreed Jackson was a strong leader, and the lessons he taught stayed with them long after they left the field? At a Dallas High School football reunion honoring Jackson’s 27-year career at Irem Temple Country Club, nearly 400 people, comprised of former players, coaches, sports journalists, family and friends, some of whom traveled from Florida, California, Virginia and elsewhere, came to support the coach. Jackson’s position as the Dallas High School head football coach was opened to the public due to an unsatisfactory performance review in late 2011, and after a hearing on the matter, the board opted to hire Shavertown resident Bob Zaruta to fill the position. But the hundreds of former football players at the reunion gave Jackson a different review. “If I had to explain why Ted was such a great coach, I could write a novel,” said 33-year-old Lenny Dorrance, of Dallas. Dorrance was a defensive end for the Mountaineers during the 1995-97 seasons under Jackson. “It was just the preparation - he taught you how to be a better person,” said Dorrance. “He taught you to be better by striving for what you want and doing it.” Dorrance said walking through the pavilion and seeing his former football teammates brought back a whirlwind of memories. “It’s like a flashback to my football years,” he said. “I can smell the grass and dirt and pads. It’s a definite flashback.” The outskirts of the Irem pavil-

ion were lined with memorabilia spanning the coach’s career. “I think my wife has every year documented,” Jackson said as he greeted guests. “Some of these people I haven’t seen in 20 or 30 years.” Some of the former players in attendance knew Jackson before they were even able to catch a football. Kevin Yurko, 30, of Dallas, said he was a water boy for the team long before he became a quarterback in the 1997-99 seasons. “I’ve known the Jacksons since I was 5 years old,” he said. “They’re very good family friends. My older brother played and I was a water boy. I grew up around it.” He said it wasn’t until he became a player himself that he realized the importance of Jackson’s lessons. “The impact was lasting well beyond football,” said Yurko. “He taught us about working hard, like getting up for work, and not giving up.” Forty-eight-year-old James Roccograndi, of Dallas Township, had two sons play under Jackson’s lead - 17-year-old Kristopher and 18-year-old James. He said his family attended the reunion because the coach was “a very positive influence” and “a great role model” for his children. “I think he steered them into the right direction,” said Roccograndi. “He taught the kids that it’s up to you. The kids mold themselves. It’s not mommy and daddy complaining to the officials. You have to talk to the officials yourself. He grooms them for the realities in life.” Pat O’Neill, 35, of Alexandria, Va., played for Jackson during the 1992-94 seasons - sandwiched in between that time period was the year the Mountaineers won a state championship title in 1993. He said it’s been about a year since he had last seen friend Matt Gingo, 31, of Tampa Fla., but he was happy to catch up with him and other fellow players at the reunion. “We’re all pretty close,” said O’Neill. “In my wedding party, five out of the six guys were ex-

football players. And the sixth guy was my dad.” O’Neill compared the Mountaineer football team to a sort of fraternity - everyone tries to keep in touch, and loyalty is very important. “It was a select group, like the Marines,” he said. “I think we were in boot camp like the Marines.” O’Neill said Jackson taught him about the value of hard work and he now gravitates towards people who share the same values. Gingo said Jackson kept the boys in line, and the team was typically quick to listen to its coach more than anyone else. “I think we didn’t get into trouble because we were more afraid of him than our parents or the police,” he said. Dorrance felt the same when he was a young football player and still does. “(Jackson) still intimidates me,” he said. The state’s all-time winningest high school football coach, George Curry, 68, of Berwick, wasn’t afraid when he faced Jackson on the field, but he certainly was “concerned.” “A team is a reflection of the coach, and that was certainly evi-

dent at Dallas,” said Curry, former Lake-Lehman, Berwick and Wyoming Valley West head coach. “He developed a culture at Dallas and made the kids into winners. I was never fearful, but when you faced Ted Jackson, you’d better be ready.”

Corey Cherup, a member of the 1993 state champion Dallas football team, praises his former coach, Ted Jackson Sr.

Nick Lombard, of Shavertown, and Cody Plesnar, of Dallas, said Jackson made them better leaders, and taught them discipline. Plesnar, 20, was taken aback by all the people who came out to support his former coach. “You get perspective - it’s amaz-

ing how many guys he’s affected throughout the years,” he said. Jackson did not say whether he will coach again but alluded to the fact that the sport is in his blood. “Pretty soon I’ll be getting itchy again,” he said.

He and his brother, Rocky, both won state championships the same year – the only brothers in the state ever to do so. Bonomo also earned a heavyweight title the same year and went on to wrestle at Bloomsburg University, where he earned national recognition. He now runs a wrestling clinic and coaches the sport at Cedar Cliff High School in Camp Hill. “It’s basically my life,” he said. Bonomo said it’s the individuality of the sport that makes it interesting – he feels one is dependent on him or herself to win or lose a match.

The PiGiants 1-10 rates offensive attack was led by Phillies 1-11 Justin James with three hits, “It’s pretty daring,” he said. “And it certainly teaches you a lot about life.” Bonomo is honored to be recognized by the school that supported his interests. “Lake-Lehman took care of me – I felt sorry for some of my teachers,” he joked. “But I don’t think there could be a better school that helped me become who I am today.” Eighteen-year-old Bryan Carter, of Sweet Valley, knows a thing or two about the “daring” sport of wrestling. After recovering from a brain and spinal cord injury incurred during a wrestling tournament his freshman year, he continues to participate in the sport, and will continue wrestling when he attends Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pa. in the fall. “It took a few months of physical and occupational therapy,” Carter said of his recovery. “My left side was stunted and I kept getting headaches.”

The injury also inspired Carter’s planned major in college – neuroscience and biology. “If all goes well, I plan to be a neurosurgeon,” he said. Carter was the recipient of the Knights of the Roundtable Scholarship this year and sat just a few feet away from one of his sports heroes during the event. “My dad has been friends with Ricky and Rocky (Bonomo) for a long time,” he said. “They were like my idols growing up. It just shows you the great people who come out of Lake-Lehman.” Superintendent James McGovern, who founded the program and presented the awards, said that is precisely the goal of the project. “We’re inspiring the future by honoring the past,” said McGovern. “Their contributions to Lake-Lehman and society prove that great people come from Lake-Lehman, and there’s no reason not to continue that tradition.”

She said the club is responsible for organizing several programs for students throughout the year, including one in honor of Veterans Day. “We keep in contact with the panel we bring to the school all year long,” said Hoidra, the club’s president. “We send them Valen-

she said. Tests showed Paul was suffering from radiation poisoning from the chemotherapy. “The very thing that was supposed to help him was actually hurting him,” said Marilyn. Paul Mizenko died on Jan. 30, 2011 after spending two weeks in a hospice. Pastor Marc Ramirez, of the Fellowship Church, said Ann Lynn and Paul were such cornerstone members of the church, it was difficult to deal with their deaths while also helping Marilyn in any way they could. “It had a huge impact on the church,” he said of Paul’s death. “Ann Lynn and Paul were important members of the church, and many also had a close relationship with Marilyn, and in dealing with loss they also tried to be a help to Marilyn, which was difficult.” Though Marilyn had family members in the area, she and her father arranged for her to stay with the Henning family, longtime family friends of the Mizenkos and members of the Fellowship Church. “They welcomed her as a daughter,” said Ramirez. After Marilyn’s ordeal, her faith in God grew and she became a more active member in the church – emphasis on the word, “active.” “I’m never home,” said Mizenko.

Marilyn Mizenko DHS senior

She is a leader in the church’s youth ministry and does activities like teaching youngsters German, taking art lessons, teaching Sunday School, leading the Bible Quiz team and meeting with other Christian-minded teens from the Back Mountain area every week. “Beforehand, I practiced a ritualistic kind of religion, always asking God to prove it if He’s real,” she said. “Well, be careful what you pray for.” Marilyn also works hard to maintain her stellar grades in school, for which she earned a $10,000 scholarship to be renewed for four years to the college she plans to attend in the fall. She had an interest in biology when she was younger, but now plans to attend Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa Falls, Ga., where she wants to study communications and youth ministry to become a motivational speaker to inspire others. “It’s been amazing to see Marilyn so focused on God and helping others when she should be the one being helped,” said Ramirez. “…She has been a great testimony to what it means to have faith in God when things aren’t going your way and a tremendous example to us all for serving others while you your-

self are in a place where you need to be served.” Marilyn said faculty and friends at Dallas High School have also been very supportive of her as she continues to deal with the difficulties in losing her parents. “Over my years at Dallas, there haven’t been too many scenarios that fit Marilyn’s situation,” said Dallas Superintendent Frank Galicki. “We have had students deal with loss, but usually there’s someone there – another parent. In this case, Marilyn was left on her own. It’s just amazing what she’s accomplished.” Marilyn said she’s become a happier person through it all, and though she still has her typical teenage moments like squabbling with the Hennings’ daughter Kayla or having trouble keeping her room clean, she knows she’s on the right path and hopes her parents would think so, too. “People always tell me they (my mother and father) would be really proud of me,” she said. “They wouldn’t always tell me that – it was just expected of me to do well. I was taught about honesty, integrity and other Christian values, and this is what I am supposed to do.”
