Pipeline pact reached with Williams Supervisors, company iron out gas agreement By SARAH HITE

Dallas Township Supervisors signed an agreement with Williams Field Services LLC Tuesday evening that will put constrictions on the company’s construction of a natural gas pipeline and metering station. Two of the township’s three supervisors, Frank Wagner and Phil Walter, signed the deal, while supervisor Glenn Howell did not. Earlier this year Howell recused himself from voting

on natural gas issues within the township because he and his wife signed a pipeline easement with a gas company. Solicitor Thomas Brennan said the agreement was about 2 ½ months in the making, and the process has been difficult – last month the township reported a stalemate in negotiations. The company’s gathering line would take gas from wells in Susquehanna County through Wyoming County to end at a site off Hildebrandt Road in Dallas Township in order to

all federal and state laws as they pertain to natural gas pipelines and keep a minimum setback for the pipeline of 25 feet from adjacent property owners unless terrain or safety hazards deem the setback unreasonable. The company’s metering station plans also were altered greatly by the agreement. Williams’ planned metering station, which is proposed to be constructed on the Perry property about 1,800 feet from the Dallas schools, will be modified to remove any communications tower, odorant/ mercaptan tank, flare, odorant build-

tap into the Transco interstate pipeline and send the gas to market. The pact includes an understanding between the township and Williams that subdivision and land development would apply to the company’s pipeline project – a notion already acknowledged Aug. 9 when the planning commission conditionally approved five miles of the Springville Gathering Line to be located within the township. Brennan said Williams will ensure the safety of the project by following See PIPELINE, Page 12

Kids learn importance of protecting resources By SARAH HITE


eventeen youngsters got a lesson in water quality Tuesdayat the Water Day Camp hosted by PennsylvaniaAmerican Water Co. at The Lands at Hillside Farms.

Experimenting with kid-friendly pollutants, such as hot chocolate-based cow manure and Kool-Aid fertilizer, the tykes saw the relationship between contaminants and water runoff. Scott Sharp, a water quality supervisor, set up what he called an “enviroscape,” a plastic model that depicted a stream leading to a lake with a farm, factory, golf course and homes nearby.

He demonstrated how simple carelessness, such as oil (also made of hot chocolate) dumped in a parking lot, could have negative consequences on a water source. The kids watched as a rainstorm, caused by 9-year-old Chelcea Morgan’s spray bottle, washed away all the dirt, chemical fertilizer, manure and other pollutants, which quickly See WATER, Page 12

Nave first teen in 17 years to participate in Rotary Exchange By SARAH HITE

Steven Nave, 18, will be the first student in 17 years to participate in the Dallas Rotary Exchange Student program. This month, Nave will leave to live with a host family and attend his senior year of high school in Aichi Prefecture and Ichinomiya in Aichi, Japan for a full year.

The home-schooled Dallas Township teen said he’s always had an affinity for Japanese culture, and after taking language lessons for a few years, he felt he was ready to experience the country firsthand. Nave won’t graduate in Japan, and he already has enough high school and college credits to take a break from his studies at home. He said he first heard about

the program through a friend of his sister, Karla, and she was the one who urged him to participate because of his interest in the country. “Eventually I started researching it and Karla showed me a blog, then I just realized how incredibly cool the exchange process would be,” he said. Nave said he’s been interested in all things Japanese since he was about 14 years old.

When he began surfing the Internet and came across some information about the country and its culture. “Just naturally through doing that I started picking up Japanese, I started reading about Japanese grammar, I started watching Japanese TV shows and reading comics,” he said. He began using the Rosetta Stone foreign language program and eventually got a tu-

tor to help him with his language studies. “I’ve got a one-hour lesson twice a week,” said Nave. “I just went over to New York City a couple weeks ago to meet my sensei’s friends from Japan and we had a little conversation and it was interesting because I felt that I was able to communicate pretty well and understand what See EXCHANGE, Page 12

School’s out for Dallas classroom equipment By SARAH HITE

A chalkboard with Halloween-themed song titles written on one side and corresponding musical artists on the other sat pushed against a wall inside a trailer parked in the dirt lot across from Wycallis Elementary. Someone, maybe a student or a teacher, started a holiday matching game that would never be finished – in class, at least. Fifteen more trailers filled with old furniture from the former Dallas High School building were available to about the same number of bidders at an auction on Saturday, Aug. 13. Metal carts, wooden desks, bookcases and other merchandise were there for the taking, as well as the memories of the recently torn down 50-year-old building that came along with them. “I’m here Jan Goeringer, wife of Dallas School Board presi- for sentident Bruce Goeringer, said mental she stopped by the auction to see if there were any reasons.

Auctioneer Steve Traver said he contacted metal scrappers, charter schools, and other parties he thought might be interested in the equipment. He also posted the auction in local newspapers and an industry website,, on which the listing received more than 7,000 views.

Borough will install storm basin

Council approves law updates

By EILEEN GODIN Dallas Post Correspondent

Borough council discussed the installation of a new stormwater basin and strengthening the zoning ordinance to address gas drilling at its meeting Tuesday night. A nutrient-separating baffle box will be installed on Wood Street in September. The baffle box is designed to filter sediment and phosphorus from rain run-off before it enters the lake. The $73,969 cost of the box and its installation will be covered by a 319 grant the borough received in 2008 under the Clean Water Act, said Fred Lubnow, director of Aquatic Programs at Princeton Hydro. The Wood Street site is one of 23 chosen to reduce sediment and phosphorus around the lake. Princeton Hydro has been handling the borough’s grant funding to implement a storm water plan to limit the amount of sediment and phosphorus entering the lake. Lubnow said the long-term goal is to reduce 230 pounds of phosphorus entering the lake. He explained one pound of phosphorus has the potential to produce up to 1,100 pounds of cotton candy-like algae. “I like saying we are putting the lake on a diet,” he said. “We are half way there.” Lubnow said baffle boxes efficiently remove phosphorus and sediment and are easy to maintain. Council will be inviting proposals from different insurance companies for a liability insurance policy. Chairman Francis Kopko said the council is satisfied with the current provider, but wants to see what other packages and prices are available. A change from Sprint to Verizon for cell phone coverage was approved. Kopko said the change was something the council wanted to do for better coverage. He said costs between the two companies are about the same. In other news, council announced the hearing board on gas drilling received a draft of changes to the zoning ordinance addressing the natural gas drilling industry. Kopko said the draft includes items such as buffer zones and road use to protect citizens in the event of natural gas activities in the borough. The draft was just received earlier this week, he said. It should be ready for public review by next month. Also, due to rain, homecoming festivities scheduled for Aug.7 have been rescheduled for Sept. 4 at the former Hanson’s Amusement Park area. Mayor Clarence Hogan announced a memorial marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept.11 attacks is being planned. Details will soon be released. Council is seeking any residents with construction or engineering experience to serve on a board of appeals. The board of appeals would hear disputed cases of residents who don’t accept the decision of Pasonick Engineering, the borough’s third party engineer inspector. Interested residents should call the borough office at 639-2113.


Dallas Borough Council approved two ordinance updates Wednesday night in an effort to keep borough code up to date. One ordinance updates language to increase enforcement for a stop sign at the corner of Elizabeth and Sunset streets that has been there for years. Another will tweak the legal language in an open burning ban ordinance to establish limitations on the exceptions, change penalties and enforcement provisions and repeal conflicting ordinances. Borough Manager Tracey Carr said there haven’t been issues in the borough that would spur these changes but over the past few years council has been working to update all laws within the borough. Council approved a switch of companies handling the borough’s plan review and uniform construction code enforcement services from Building Inspection Underwriters to Barry Isett & Associates Inc. Building Inspection Underwriters had served the borough since 2004. Carr said council looks to change


The next Dallas Borough Council meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21 in the municipal building.

various service providers every few years to find the best rates and services for residents. Last year the borough switched engineers and a few years ago council hired a new solicitor. “We just try to get the best benefits for the taxpayers,” Carr said. Carr was authorized to prepare a questionnaire to give to residents concerning storm water drainage issues and road improvement needs. The borough will be eligible for a 2012 housing and urban development grant from the Luzerne County Office of Community Development. “We know those are two issues in the borough, so that’s what we want to spend the money on,” said Carr. Council approved the inclusion of Lake Township in the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency and appointed Dennis Barney Dobinick as assistant regional emergency management director in the group. The Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency currently

serves Dallas Borough, Jackson Township and Lehman Township. Council agrred to pay Verdin $590 to provide two maintenance visits to the Dallas Borough clock during 2012. Don Wilkinson Agency/CENTAX was appointed as the borough’s tax collector starting on Jan. 1, 2012, pending final solicitor approval. In other news, council… • Approved and recognized the financial requirement and minimum municipal obligation budget for 2012 for both the uniformed and non-uniformed plans in the amounts of $25,861 and $8,447 respectively in compliance with Act 205 of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. • Accepted receipt of the Jan. 1, 2011 Act 205 actuarial valuation reports for the uniformed and non-uniformed pension plans as prepared by Beyer Barber Co. through Thomas J. Anderson & Associates and authorized the following payments: $2,700 for preparation of each actuarial valuation report and $300 for each initial fee to generate biannual participant statements. • Approved and authorized the appropriate borough official to execute material quotations with American Asphalt Paving Co. to purchase various asphalt materials under the state cooperative purchasing program.

Nothing goes untracked in today’s world Strolling through the Philadelphia airport recently, I saw what looked like a large, lighted display stuck in a corner by itself. It turned out to be an eight foot square mini store complete with an automated robotic arm for retrieving purchased items, credit card swipe slot, a personality about the same as most checkout employees and that eye-level square which surely held a mini camera. Best Buy in a box! The “store” was filled with camera memory cards, flash drives, cameras, noise-cancelling headphones, iPods and other assorted electronic goodies. Swipe your card, grab your purchase and let the credit card company and everyone it shares information with know exactly where you are and what you’re doing. Visions of George Orwell’s “1984” flashed through my head, a book I read so long ago in an English class at Seminary with either Mr. Cabot, of “Jaws” fame, or Mr. Carver. Unfortunately, my brain is not recalling the exact details of the class but I do remember it has to do with lead character Winston Smith and Big Brother being omnipresent and completely running everyone’s life. Let’s take a moment and dissect a trip you took in 1976 compared to a trip you would take today. In 1976, you picked a location, looked in the phone book for the area code, called information, talked to an actual person and asked for the name and number of hotels in the area. Then, you called several hotels, talked to more live individuals, reserved your room with good faith that you would show up and inquired about where the person taking the reservation liked to eat and hang out. Then you called your buddies and told them to be ready the next morning because the road trip was planned. Meet Big Joe Fuller, Bobby Coolbaugh, Jimmy Dimond, Greg, Stuart and a few new faces the next morning at Gorda’s Sunoco station, ask for a free road map, fuel up the Charger with eight duffel bags in the back and leave after writing a note letting your family know you’d be back in a week. Everything was done with cash. Fuel, hotel room (at $19.95 a night split four ways plus a tip for the maid), tolls and meals. The only footprint we left on those trips (besides being thrown out of several establishments where we used the name of the guy from school whom everyone disliked) was at the hotel where we had to list a home address. But, we received a hand-written note, thanking us for our stay …sometimes. Now for today’s trip. I Googled the Florida Keys on the laptop, which has installed Cookies to track every web page I visit. I read comments from someone I don’t know, enter credit card and billing info and click submit. Onto the airline website, where I look up rates and learn they now charge $50 a bag. I could live for a week out of a small carry-on bag, but the airlines know the habits of women. Take the Mrs., for example. Three outfits a day with shoes to match, sweaters (it’s 90-plus degrees there), more clothes and accessories, including that industrial strength hair dryer which drives Florida Flicker and Flame, aka Florida Power and Light, crazy. Next, it’s the rental car company and yet another credit card entry. The whole world now knows we’re going away. At the airport, you insert your credit card into a computer kiosk, boarding passes are printed and the only work the few airline employees do is put a tag on your luggage indicating you’ve paid the extra fee. There’s no one at the rental car counter since all you have to do is find your name on the screen and go to the highlighted parking slot to pick up your vehicle. Maps are not provided but, if there’s a GPS in the car, you’re in luck. Tolls in Florida are now completely automated. A camera takes a photo of your license plate and charges your credit card. How did they get that info if you didn’t sign up for SunPass? The hotel takes your credit card upon arrival. The restaurants take your credit card for meals. The stores take your credit card for sunscreen and food. No one wants cash (except the fishing guides who love Hamilton and Grant) and, if they do, the cash register had better tell the operator exactly how many quarters, dimes and nickels to give as change since the new math being taught doesn’t touch on that subject. Big Brother can tell where you went, what you bought, what you ate and how long you were there. Just about every place we visited had overhead cameras tracking our every move. It makes you wonder just how much foresight George Orwell had back in 1949 when he wrote “1984.” It also makes me wonder if the web camera on this laptop is really turned off.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

• On Sept. 1, 1836, Narcissa Whitman, a missionary, arrives in Walla Walla, Wash., becoming one of the first Anglo women to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. In 1847, a measles epidemic killed many of the Cayuse Indians. In retaliation, a band of Cayuse killed 14 people, including Narcissa and her husband. • On Sept. 4, 1886, Geronimo, the wiliest and most dangerous Apache warrior of his time, finally surrenders in Skeleton Canyon, Ariz. Geronimo never learned to use a gun, yet he armed his men with the best modern rifles he could obtain and even used field glasses to aid reconnaissance during his campaigns. • On Sept. 2, 1923, aftershocks and out-of-control fires rock Tokyo, Japan, and the surrounding area following an 8.3-magnitude earthquake. In total, 143,000 people died in the disaster. The Imperial Hotel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, sank 2 feet into the ground but still managed to stand. • On Sept. 3, 1939, Britain and France declare war on Germany. The first casualty of that declaration was the British ocean liner Athenia, which was sunk that evening by a German submarine. • On Aug. 31, 1955, William G. Cobb of the General Motors Corp. demonstrates his 15-inch-long “Sunmobile,” the world’s first solarpowered automobile. When sunlight hit 12 photoelectric cells made of selenium (a nonmetal substance with conducting properties) built into the Sunmobile, an electric current was produced that in turn powered a tiny motor. • On Aug. 30, 1963, a “hot line” between Moscow and Washington goes into effect to speed communication between the governments of the United States and the Soviet Union and help prevent the possibility of an accidental war. The hot line was never really necessary to prevent war, but it did provide a useful prop for movies about nuclear disaster, such as “Fail Safe” and “Dr. Strangelove.” • On Aug. 29, 1982, the Swedish-born actress and three-time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman dies of cancer in London on her 67th birthday. Bergman was best known for her role as Ilsa Lund in “Casablanca.”

STRANGE BUT TRUE The History Channel

• It was the 37th president of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, who made the following sage - and somehow appropriate - observation: “Sure there are dishonest men in local government. But there are dishonest men in national government, too.” • Pasta has been around since 5,000 B.C., and it was invented in China, not Italy. • If you’re planning a visit to the United Kingdom, you might want to keep in mind this rather obscure statute: It’s illegal to stand within 100 yards of the reigning monarch if you don’t have socks on. • A groundhog can move 700 pounds of dirt in a single day. • When the two-and-one-half-hour finale of the groundbreaking television show “M*A*S*H” aired on Feb. 28, 1983, advertisers paid a hefty $450,000 for a single 30-second spot. That was $50,000 more than the same spot cost at the Super Bowl that year. • We all know what a disaster is, but did you know where the word came from? The base of the word is “aster,” which is Latin for “star.” The word “disaster” originally meant “an unfavorable aspect of a star,” reflecting the ancient notion that the motions of heavenly bodies affected terrestrial events. • Baseball players didn’t have numbers on their uniforms until 1929, and it was the New York Yankees that were the first to adopt the practice. • In the early 18th century, newspapers were not cheap, but the stories published therein were often people’s only link to the events of the day. Since they were so coveted, newspapers were often brought as a gift when a gentleman was calling on a lady friend, much as candy or flowers might be brought in a different era. ••• Thought for the day: “No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you’ll see why.” - Mignon McLaughlin

In other news … The board heard from Director of Technology Brian Murphy about switching the district phone system from basic telephone lines to a voice-over IP system. Dimension Tel LLC Telecommunications Consulting & Support Services, of Wyoming, recentlyconcludedatelecommunications expense analysis for the district and Murphy said the district is currently paying $5 a month for 285 telephone lines. He said switching to the voice over IP system, which would allow phones to be connected to data jacks rather than phone jacks, would decrease the number of phone lines to 28 throughout the four schools and administration building, saving the district about $40,000 a year. The upgrades necessary to complete the switch would cost about $150,000, but Murphy said the conversion would pay for itself within three or four years. Board member Drew Salko said he has a similar system set up at his workplace and had concerns about reliability of the service.

Conservation district relaxes berm control demands

The Board of Supervisors announced at its regular meeting Monday that the Luzerne County Conservation District has relaxed its demands on the township to provide erosion and sedimentation controls along the berms of the township roads. Last month the township received a compliance notice from the Luzerne County Conservation District regarding the way in which the township has been clearing the berm of the roads. During an inspection, the district noted the township failed to provide effective measures to control erosion and sedimentation during the paving of several roads. Board Chairman Dave Sutton said the district’s requirements to line the berms with hay bales and other methods would pose a safety hazard to motorists during

paving. Sutton said the district is allowing the township to wait until the paving is completed before the township has to take measures. Supervisor Doug Ide added that a dozen storm pipes must be also be replaced before the township can address the issue. Ide said he is in the process of preparing an application for a Community Development Block Grant for 2012. If the township is awarded the grant, which he estimates may be $100,000, the funds will be used to pave Cease Terrace and Lakeside Drive in the Lake Silkworth area. The board announced Spotts Brothers Inc. of Schuylkill Haven was awarded a contract last week to replace the municipal building’s roof. The firm’s bid, in the amount of $21,460 was the lowest of two

opened at last month’s meeting. Once the roof is replaced, landscaping will be done along the front of the building, the board added. The Back Mountain Recreation Association will sponsor a free outdoor family movie night at its soccer field off state Route 118 Friday night at 8 p.m. Sutton, who is also the execu-

tive director of the association, said more than 400 people attended last month’s movie night. After cartoons, the Pixar movie “Rango” will be shown on a big screen. Affordable refreshments will also be served. “It’s great,” he said. “It’s so much fun.” The rain date is Sunday. - Camille Fioti

MU’s Women with Children Program to be renamed

Misericordia University will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Women with Children Program (WWC) by hosting a special gala where the program will be formally named the Ruth Matthews Bourger Women with Children Program. The public is invited to attend the “Sisters Serving Sisters, Families Helping Families” event, which be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The gala will also celebrate the 180th anniversary of the Sisters of Mercy, who founded Misericordia and the successful WWC program. The naming recognizes the family of Ruth Matthews Bourger for their exceptional support to this unique program that provides housing and support for academically qualified, single mothers and their children at two houses owned by the university. Established in 2000, the program has seen graduates pursue successful careers in nursing, education, communications, occupational therapy,

social work, medical imaging, psychology, business administration and speech-language pathology. “After my company sold and subsequently went public in 2003, I Ruth Matthews asked my daughters, Bourger Brenda and Blythe, to look for charities where we could make a difference,” said John T. (Jack) Bourger, Ruth’s son. “I personally was interested in helping people so that they could support themselves. The girls learned from a minister at their church about the Women with Children Program at Misericordia and what a difference it made in the lives of single mothers. My mother was a stay-at-home mom and my father and I were the focus of her life. I knew she would be thrilled to make a difference in the lives of these young women and help them become self-sufficient.” The family’s Brenda Blythe Trust is-

sued a challenge grant to Misericordia in 2005 that offered to donate $1 million to the WWC program if the University raised $2 million in eight years. Within the first five years, Misericordia has raised $1,636,274 and is striving to complete the challenge by the Jan. 31, 2013 deadline. Brenda Bourger is the owner of the String Thing Shop, a yarn and string shop in Mountaintop, Pa., and has her own Misericordia connection. Her husband, Tony McGinley, earned a degree in management information systems at Misericordia in 2004. The couple has a daughter. Blythe and her husband, Jason Teeple, have two children. The family’s support of the WWC program so sparked their interest in the Sisters of Mercy that while on vacation they went out of their way to visit the Mercy International Centre, the original house of the Sisters of Mercy that was built by foundress Catherine McAuley in 1824 in Dublin, Ireland. Ruth and her husband, Eugene J.

(Mike) Bourger, met in high school while living in Blakely, Pa. It wasn’t until after he returned from duty in World War II and finished college that the couple dated and soon married. The family continued to live in Blakely where Jack, an only child, was raised. Mrs. Bourger was active in the Blakely Baptist Church as head of the flower committee. She was also a member of a local social activities committee and was a member of the ladies’ auxiliary of the Blakely Hose Company. She passed away in 2005, one year after her husband. Jack followed in his father’s collegiate footsteps and attended Lafayette College, where he played varsity football. In 2007, Lafayette recognized Jack Bourger and Selena Vanderwerf as among the college’s most philanthropic supporters, and dedicated the new Bourger Varsity Football House in memory of Ruth and Mike — both long-time Lafayette supporters. Jack recently retired from Brown Bridgman & Co., a provider of ex-

ecutive benefits and supplemental retirement programs, located in New York City, where he served as president and CEO for 24 years and as chairman for 16 years. More information on the “Sisters Serving Sisters, Families Helping Families” gala is available online at Tickets are $125 and are available by calling (570) 6746719. Those who would like to honor a Sister of Mercy who has impacted their life or a mother in the WWC program may sponsor their attendance at the gala with a gift of $125. In addition, direct gifts to the Sisters of Mercy Scholarship Fund for Women with Children can be sent to the Office of Development, Misericordia University, 301 Lake St., Dallas, PA 18612. Founded and Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy in 1924, Misericordia University is Luzerne County’s first four-year college and offers 32 academic majors on the graduate and undergraduate levels in full and part-time formats.

Sean Robbins, of Shavertown, won on the 30th anniversary of the triathlon as the first Wyoming Valley resident ever to do so. Robbins crossed the finish line in Lehman Township with a time of


Sean Robbins is the first to cross the finish line at the triathlon.

2:08:26 – a win 17 years in the making. Kelly Ciravolo, also of Sha-

vertown, placed first in the women’s contest with a time of 2:16:59. Participants started the race with a 1.5 kilometer swim at Harveys Lake and hopped on their bicycles for a 40 kilometer trek through Harveys Lake, Noxen, Kunkle, Dallas Township, Dallas, Jackson Township to the Penn State WilkesBarre Campus in Lehman Township. The last part of the triathlon, an 11 kilometer run, began and ended at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

Twelve-year-old Jordan Wilson, of Trucksville, is setting her sights a bit lower for next year’s Smallmouth Bass and Walleye Derby in Pillar Point, N.Y. She wants to place second. That’s because this year, the Dallas Middle School student placed first in the competition’s youth division, dubbed the largest amateur fishing contest in northern New York. There are 15 places in the youth division and more than 50 youngsters come out to compete every summer. Wilson took third place when she was 9 years old, so her goal is to earn each placing at least once before she graduates to the adult contest. “My cousin Tommy got first, second and third,” she said. “He took third with me this year. We were hoping to get first and second, but there was a 0.05 (weight difference) in between.” Her trophy-winning smallmouth bass weighed in at 5.05 pounds and was measured at more than 20 inches long, which she said wasn’t too far off from the cash prize-winning fish caught by an older man in the adult division that weighed at 5.24 pounds. Wilson’s fish would have earned her second place in the adult division. “It weighed almost as much as (my cousin) Connor when he was born,” she said. The contest is a family affair – Wilson said it’s a tradition for family members to enter at age 9. So far, Wilson, her cousin Tommy Kulikowski, uncle Bobby Hivish and grandfather (or “Pa,” as Wilson calls him) Bob Hivish all placed in the youth division over the years. Wilson said her grandmother usually makes breakfast sandwiches and snacks for the family of fishermen, who start around 4 a.m. and cast their lines for about 12 hours. The contest closes at 5 p.m. The story about catching the winning fish is a bit dramatic, but Wilson enjoys retelling the jaunty tale, as most proud fishermen do. “We were in Hart’s Gravel, and … I was fishing in the back with my Uncle Tom. I lift my pole and it bends, and I cast it out far and it was extremely windy,” she said. “So, a minute or two before we see this huge fish jump out of the water and it looked like it had something in its mouth. We didn’t even think to realize that (it was mine), and my father claims it was his fish. “I lifted it and I said, ‘Pa, I think I’m stuck on your motor or the bottom of the boat.’ So he lifted it and it wasn’t the bottom, it wasn’t the motor. It was diagonal so it couldn’t be the boat. So my

grandfather starts reeling it in and it just goes.” She said everyone in the boat was excitedly shouting at this point, and her uncle Tom Kulikowski prepped a net for snatching the fish while cheering Wilson on. “I reeled it in and I was like, ‘Yay, I’m done, I finally caught the fish!’” she said. “I hadn’t caught anything all morning and I was like, ‘I’m determined to catch this fish,’ and I just kept saying that and saying that.” When she caught the winning bass, Wilson said she dropped her pole and suntanned for the rest of the fishing venture. “I got a nice tan that day,” she said. Wilson’s been fishing since she was about 4 or 5 years old, and she said her competitive nature is fueled by the sport. She wasn’t kidding when she said her father Jason thought the 5-pound bass was his own – the two avid fishers often spar and tease each other during trips. “She cut my line,” he laughed. While the family always wins big in the youth division, Wilson said a member of her clan has yet to place in the adult division, in which winners receive a monetary prize. Wilson received a trophy and mountain bike for her fishing efforts. She’s also going to get her prize-winning bass mounted to keep at home. Wilson’s mother, Jennifer, said she’s proud of her daughter but was surprised to learn about the extent of her enjoyment for the sport. “For her birthday…four years ago, my brother said, ‘I’m getting Jordan a good fishing pole and tackle box,’ and I think that’s when it finally hit me that she actually liked to fish,” she said. Now fishing is a pleasurable pastime for Wilson, though she said the virtue of patience and waking up early are just part of the sport and not everyday life. “It’s somewhat taught me patience while fishing,” she said. “It doesn’t apply to the non-fishing world.” A free basketball session will be held for girls in grades seven through 12 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. today, Aug. 21 at Lake-Lehman High School.

DHS dedication slated for Aug. 28

The Dallas School District would like to invite the public for a formal dedication of the new, state-of-the-art Dallas High School at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28. The building will be open for

public viewing on Sunday and the district will announce public tours throughout the following week. For more information, contact the district administration office at 675-5201.


Members of the Nave family, of Dallas, gather around their kitchen counter. From left, are Helen, Karla, Steven, Rob and Joy Nave. Steven will be a foreign exchange student this year in Japan. While he is away, the family will host a student from Germany.

they were saying, so that was pretty encouraging for me.” The Rotary Exchange Program application process took about 10 months. Nave said he had to be interviewed several times and write reports about the areas in which he will be staying. He was chosen as one of nine students in the country to travel to Japan this year. “I’m really looking forward to getting to know the Rotarians there and loads and loads of friends that I’ll meet in the Japanese high school,” he said. Nave, who’s 6-foot, 5-inches tall, isn’t too worried about fitting into the country, either. “Curly hair, kind of tall – I think I will stand out, but I hope that even though I may not look like the Japanese teenagers very much, I know that I’ll be able to find a place in the high school and get into a group and make friends,” he said. In his absence, the Naves will host an exchange student from Germany, who will attend Dallas High School. The family hosted an exchange student from Bilboa, Spain earlier this summer to get a feel for the process. It was during that time the family found out they would be hosting the German exchange student for an entire year. “We just had a wonderful time with her,” said Nave’s mother, Helen. “When she left we were all sad.” Now the experience has al-

lowed the family to become better prepared to handle inquiries about living in the United States and, more specifically, Dallas Township. “It was a good warm-up because we figured out quickly things that are specific to Pennsylvania and foods that we hadn’t realized that are just American,” said Karla Nave. Helen Nave said the family prepared their guest room and hung a “Welcome” sign in the home to make the student feel comfortable on her first day in America. Language wasn’t an issue, either, as Helen Nave is fluent in Spanish. The student had been studying English for nine years in addition to growing up learning Spanish and Basque, a local dialect of Bilboa. Helen Nave said the student also spoke a little French. The family took the student on several trips, including to New York City, Princeton, N.J. and on several shopping outings. “She liked to shop,” laughed Karla Nave. Steven Nave’s father, Rob Nave, is fluent in German, so if any language issues arise during the German exchange student’s stay, the family is fully prepared. Helen Nave said she’ll miss her son while he’s away, but she trusts the program and believes the experience will be beneficial to him. “For me I feel that this is something that Steven has always wanted to do for the longest time,” she said. “This has been the desire of his heart, to go to Japan, so I felt this was the perfect fit.”

nish his new business, Electric City Insurance. Bruce Goeringer said décor at the new high school needed to match and therefore much of the furnishings from the former building became part of the sale. “We have to liquidate what we don’t need,” he said. “Some of this stuff looks like it’s in pretty good shape and maybe someone could use it.” Sarah Kashatus, a ninth grade English teacher at the high school, couldn’t bear to let go of some of her old wares – she bid more than $20 for a set of wood-

en mailbox cupboards because a retired teacher had passed them down to her when most items were selling for $1. “It’s a little emotional to see this,” said the Harveys Lake resident. Traver said the auction wasn’t a big money-maker for his company, but he wanted to be a part of the local sale. He said by the end of the two and a half hour auction, 90 percent of the merchandise sold item by item at first and then by the trailer-full - and he expects the earnings to be less than $3,000. Bruce Goeringer said monies raised from the sale will be used to start an educational foundation to fund various projects throughout the district.

MU recognized for community service

Misericordia University has been named by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction for exemplary service - the only college or university in Northeastern Pennsylvania to receive the distinction. The Community Service Honor Roll was launched in 2006. It is the highest federal recognition a college or university can achieve for its commitment to servicelearning and civic engagement. Honorees were chosen based on a series of selection factors, including the scope and innovation of service projects, the extent to which service-learning is embedded in the curriculum, the school’s commitment to longterm campus-community partnerships and measurable community outcomes as a result of the service. Of the 641 colleges and universities recognized this year, 511 were named to the Honor Roll, 114 received the recognition of Honor Roll With Distinction, 11 were identified as finalists and six received the Presidential Award. Sixty-three percent of Misericordia students engage in service-learning through creditbearing courses in addition to their clinical and fieldwork relat-

ed courses. Eighty percent of all students, faculty and staff reported participating in other sponsored service and volunteer related activities with an action orientation. Misericordia’s strategic plan embraces a seamless integration of mission and academic excellence and calls to increase both those numbers to 90 percent by 2015. Among the unique Misericordia projects that inspired the CNCS award is the university’s Speech Language and Hearing Center in the College of Health Sciences on Lake Street. Since

2004, speech-language and pathology (SLP) majors have offered therapy to men, women and children at an on-campus clinic. The clinic serves anyone with a communication disorder whose insurance ended before goals were met, those without insurance and those who cannot otherwise receive SLP therapy. Operating year-round, this is the only clinic in the Wyoming Valley that is free, though a free-will payment is accepted. The service has since expanded to children in a pre-school developmental program at the Wyoming Valley Chil-

dren’s Association and at two community Head Start classes. The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll is a collaborative program with CNCS and the Department of Education, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation. CNCS reports that in 2009, 3.2 million college students dedicated more than 307 million hours of service to communities across the country, service valued at more than $6.4 billion.


Chelcea Morgan, Wyoming, and Mia Williams, Luzerne, worked on decorating containers for water at a presentation called the “Wonderful World of Water” at The Lands at Hillside Farms.

dissolved and streamed into the water supply. “This is an observation of the end of the world!” shouted Morgan, of Wyoming, as the mess dispersed through a stream and into the lake. Sharp also talked to the kids about how to prevent a similar situation from happening in real life, including covering unneeded wells, using the cow manure as natural fertilizer instead of chemicals and fencing in animals that could pose a problem to streams. Susan Turcmanovich, external affairs manager for Pennsylvania-American Water Co., said teaching these issues to young children in a hands-on manner makes them understand the concepts throughout adulthood. “We want them to understand how im-

ing, condensate water tank, and building not required for the metering of natural gas…” It says all equipment should be located within one building, but no more than two, and neither can exceed a size of 1,100 square feet and be no taller than 15 feet. The agreement states the buildings “shall not result in odors, vibrations, or sound above 20 decibels over the natural pre-existing background levels at any boundary of the Perry parcel.” In addition, Williams cannot manage or operate any natural gas activities within a 1.75-mile

portant water is as a resource,” she said. “It’s a finite resource and it’s important for them to see how everything they do impacts water.” This is the first time the company has held its camp at Hillside; previously camps were held in the Pittsburgh area. “Being here you can see water use firsthand to take care of the animals and the crops,” Turcmanovich said. The kids spent the first day of the camp getting to know one another while decorating watering cans and clay pots. “They’re going to have tomato plants to take home,” said Turcmanovich. “They’ll understand that all living things need water.” By the second day, Robbie Lauer of Shavertown was beginning to see what Turcmanovich was talking about. “I learned a lot of cool things like about the animals and produce and organic things,” said the 9-year-old. “I learned that if you get too much pollution it can be really bad for the ocean. I’m going to be more Rowan Ide, Scranton, decorated her container. careful with how I use water.”

radius from the center of the Dallas School District campus, and a deed restriction states the company cannot expand upon the Perry property after the metering facility is built. The metering station will still be contingent upon a decision by the zoning hearing board, despite the agreement. The company is in the process of constructing a metering station in Northmoreland Township, Wyoming County, in order for the pipeline to be in operation by October. Williams spokesperson Helen Humphreys said the company would like to have just one metering station for the pipeline, but could not elaborate on the company’s future plans.

Brennan also said Williams has agreed to abide by a curative amendment to the township zoning ordinance regarding natural gas activities. In early May the supervisors voted to deem the zoning law inadequate to handle pipelines and metering stations. The amendment will be presented to the board some time in September. If any party breaches the agreement, the issue will be taken to the court of common pleas. Brennan said the issue had to be decided upon by the supervisors Tuesday because the process had already taken enough time and residents have been aware of most of the issues for months. He also said the “threat of litigation was also a factor.”

A few residents came to the meeting to address the issue for the first time. Michael Bednar, of Lower Demunds Road, said he had just recently heard about the issue and had concerns about the environment and the effects on his neighborhood. “…Even if you had been here, we have done as much as a township can possibly do given the state of state law and given state of our existing ordinance,” said Brennan. Resident Jane Tolomello said though Bednar hasn’t been paying attention, once others see the construction happening, more will attend meetings to oppose the developments. “Everyone should get involved,” she said.
