An optimist’s take on ‘the end’

PAGE 2

I did not see any accounts where an exact time was mentioned, which means, as I write this at about 7:30 Saturday morning, the Rapture may already have come and gone. Come to think of it, the only people I’ve seen so far today are my wife and Joe Scarantino walking his poodle. If the Rapture has occurred, I want to know what that poor little dog ever did to be left behind. If indeed Saturday wound up being the end, or even the beginning of the end, the thing that has me most upset, aside from the obvious – yes, it would have been nice to see my kids one last time – is that I did not pick up a pizza Friday night as I promised myself I’d do all day long. Why? Because I worked late. How I dread going through all eternity having to admit that every time someone asks, “So, how’d you spend your last night?” I did have a beer before bed, though. A Newcastle Brown Ale, I am proud to say. And I

used one of the good beer glasses from the China closet, too, the kind that makes a perfectly pitched ding when you click the rim with your fingernail, the kind we never, ever use for drinking beer. So I have that going for me. I am aware that if the world ended Saturday there is absolutely no one reading today. Nevertheless, I want to go on record that I went out ever the optimist, finding the good even in this. And there is good – plenty of it. For all the wondrous things I will miss following the end, there are almost as many I won’t. And that gives me great solace. For one thing, I won’t miss acid indigestion – I guess I still have that not-eaten pizza on my mind – or burning the roof of my mouth on molten cheese when I cannot wait to take the first bite. And I won’t miss highway construction projects, that sinking feeling when you realize all

the drivers in front of you are hitting their brakes because all the drivers in front of them have already hit their brakes and so on and so forth for the next 12 miles. I won’t miss that. Or tailgaters, speaking of driving. Or litterbugs. Or that clueless guy who won’t pull over into the passing lane and let me merge into traffic on the interstate. Yeah, you, buddy. I won’t miss you. Reality TV. I won’t miss that either. Along with any TV show that includes in its title “with the stars.” I won’t miss fast food. Or slow service. And I won’t miss my alarm clock. Or shaving. Or the pesky tendonitis in my right Achilles tendon. Or buying shoes. (I have weird feet.) I won’t miss wondering how that young man’s jeans are staying up … or if he ever takes off his baseball cap. I won’t miss petty politicians.

Heck, petty people in general. Or whiners. Get over it already. I won’t miss the little hourglass on the monitor in front of me as my computer cooks up its latest surprise. I won’t miss finding out one more time what happens when you put something in the microwave uncovered. I won’t miss head colds. I won’t miss flossing. And, God knows, I won’t miss my ever present love handles. And I particularly won’t miss all those people who have spent their lifetimes convinced that when the Rapture does come, they will be first in line. And if the end did not come on Saturday? Well, I guess I can put up with all these things a little while longer. At least until December of 2012, which everyone knows will bring the real end of the world. Expect great Christmas presents that year. I’m maxing out all my credit cards.

If you’re reading this then the world did not end Saturday which is pretty good news for everyone who isn’t a New York Mets fan or Charlie Sheen’s father. Actually, I guess it’s not the official closing of the curtain that this 89-year-old preacher from California predicted for Saturday but rather the beginning of the end, i.e. Judgment Day – which, for the record, never happens at Planet Fitness. Anyway, the highlight of Saturday was supposed to be the Rapture, a moment where all the goodest people would be vaporized directly into heaven and the rest of us would remain here to deal with all sorts of mass hysteria and Justin Bieber songs. I read where about 200,000 people would wind up on that express elevator to the Pearly Gates which is a pretty small number when you think about it. I’m guessing a decent amount of them, however, are Dispatch readers.

James, Licata win county council nominations Luzerne County Council primary race back story: under votes By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

In the primary races for 11 nominations from each party to run for the new county council in November, Democratic Greater Pittston area candidates batted .100, while the Republicans batted 1.000. Bill James, a businessman from Harding, was the only local Republican candidate, out of 16, and he won a nomination. He was seventh on the Republican side with 6,747 votes. Of the 10 Democratic candidates from the local area, out of 33, only one, Sal Licata, won a nomination. Licata, a retired Pittston Area school teacher from Pittston, was seventh among the Democrats with 8,967 votes. Of the other nine local Democrats who didn’t win nominations former Pittston Area school director John Adonizio came the closest. He was 12th on the Democratic side, missing the cut by 176 votes to Elaine Maddon Curry, 7,884 to 7,608. James, the local Republican winner, said name recognition helped him. “I’ve been around Luzerne County my whole life,” he said. “I ran for state representa-

tive twice, I ran for county commissioner, I was on the council in Forty Fort and I’m on the Exeter Township planning commission.” But James didn’t rely on the hope that enough voters would recognize his name. “I was attending every event, going door-

to-door. I wanted to prove to myself that people knew me as Bill James the person, not just the politician who put signs all over the place.” Asked about the oddity of a father and son with the same name – Stephen J. Urban and Stephen A. Urban – being the top

voter-getter in the Republican and Democratic parties respectively, James said name recognition was the key again. He chuckled and said, “Is it home rule or Urban rule? That’s what I heard people saying out there.” The elder Urban, Stephen J., is a sitting county commissioner who switched from the Republican to the Democratic party last December. James said some Republicans may have voted for the son thinking he was the father. “I believe that happened in some cases,” James said. “Steve, the elder, is popular with both sides. I believe there were voters who didn’t know or forgot he switched.” Not that James believes nominating the younger Urban was a bad outcome. “I know the whole Urban family. Young Steve is brilliant, he made his own way. I can’t say anything derogatory about him. It’s going to be interesting when we get to the general.” Licata, the Democrat from Pittston, was one of 11 candidates from a union-endorsed Working Families for Better Government slate and one of only four of those to win a nomination.

Two local men – Fred Pierantoni with almost 24,000 votes and Michael Vough with just over 22,000 – were the top votegetters in Tuesday’s primary election for nominations for six seats on the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. Pierantoni, from Dupont, is the Magistrate of District 4 in Pittston, a post he has held for 20 years. Pierantoni was the winner on the Democratic ballot and fourth on the Republican side. Vough, a lawyer was second and third respectively. Vough, an Avoca native, lives in West Pittston. He is a Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney. Two other Pittston area attorneys did not crack the top six on

either side. Joe Saporito grew up in Pittston and lives in Jenkins Township. Mark Bufalino is a West Pittston native who lives in Trucksville. Saporito came closest, finishing seventh on the Democratic side, 428 votes behind Molly Mirabito out of over 33,000 cast for them combined. Jennifer Rogers is a lawyer with local ties who made the cut for both parties. She was sixth on the Republican side, edging Jim Haggerty by less than 100 votes, and fifth on the Democratic side. Rogers is a West Pittston native. She moved away with her family as a child but came back to the area and now lives at Harvey’s Lake and has a private practice with a concentration in family law. West Pittston Mayor Bill Goldsworthy, who watched the judicial campaign and election closely, said there was a shocker and some surprises. “I was shocked that Lesa Gelb got a double and surprised Saporito didn’t get at least a Republican nomination.” Apparently Gelb was not hurt by a lawsuit field against her by her former employee West Pittston Atty. Mike Cefalo, which alleges she took confidential files when she left Cefalo’s office in 2008.

Mixed results for no-nepotism school board slates On the Wyoming Area nonepotism slate were incumbent Estelle Campenni, and newcomers Tom Cason, Beth GoberMagnan, and Carl Yorina. Campenni was the top vote-getter for both the Democratic and Republican nominations. Gober-Mangan also won a double nomination and Yorina won a Republican nod, coming in second to Campenni. Long-time Wyoming Area incumbent Toni Valenti ran with incumbent Nick DeAngelo and newcomer Jerry Stofko. Stofko did not win a nomination and DeAngelo won a Democratic nomination only. Valenti won a double, but she was fifth on both sides, beating Yorina by only 12 votes on the Democratic side and Cason by 29 on the Republican side. The top three vote-getters – Campenni, Gober-Magnan, and surprising independent Deanna Farrell – are positioned well to win in November. That leaves Valenti, DeAngelo and Yorina to vie for the other

two seats. Counting total votes, Valenti was the lowest of the three. She tallied 1,789 Republican and Democratic votes combined. Yorina got 1,880 and DeAngelo 1,812. Though Valenti has the advantage of a double nomination, while Yorina and DeAngelo have singles, there is precedent for a

double nominee losing in Wyoming Area. In the 2009 general Frank Casarella and Gil Dominick ran as independents and displaced two candidates who had won both nominations in the primary. Campenni said the results were bittersweet for her. Sweet because she was the top votegetter and because two of her

Except for the players, it was hard to tell the two local school board races apart. In both Pittston Area and Wyoming Area five seats were on the ballots. In both districts sitting board members whose terms were up did not run, opening up the race to newcomers. In both districts the campaigns featured slates of nonepotism candidates against slates headed by well-known incumbents. Judging by the results, nepotism wasn’t a major issue for the voters in the Pittston Area, but it did seem to affect the Wyoming Area outcome. Of the three Pittston Area candidates who ran promising to implement a no-nepotism policy, only one, Bob Gorzkowski, was successful. Gorzkowski was appointed to the board last fall to replace Mike McAndrew who resigned. Gorzkowski won a double nomination. He was first among Republicans and fifth among Democrats. But his slate mates, Bob Lampman and Tony Tuttle, who appeared only on the Democratic ballot were defeated. They were the only school board candidates not to crossfile. Popular incumbent Tony Guariglia ran with a five-member slate of four newcomers called Team Patriot. Four of the team – Guariglia, Joe Kelly, John Casey Donahue and Charles Sciandra – won double nominations. Somewhat surprisingly Sciandra was the top vote-getter on the Democratic ballot and second on the Republican ballot with Guariglia a close second on the Democratic side and third on the Republican side. The fifth Patriot team member John Boone, a veteran of Avoca council, missed by just two votes of getting a Republican nomination and was 150 behind Gorzkowski on the Democratic side out of over 5,000 votes between them. Guariglia said to the extent that the no-nepotism pledge was a shot at him, there are no grounds for it. “I don’t need to sign a nepotism pledge. I never hired a relative and I stand by my record.”

Pittston Tomato Festival in today’s Parade Magazine By John Krispin

The Times Leader

A local food festival will make another kind of splash this weekend, months ahead of the actual event. The 28th annual Pittston Tomato Festival will grace the pages of this week’s nationally published Parade Magazine, an insert in today’s Sunday Dispatch and Sunday Times Leader, in the feature story “Eat Your Way Across America, 50 States, 50

Fabulous Food Festivals.” “The tomato fight caught our eye,” said Daryl Chen, features editor of Parade Magazine. “It was also great that the money for the event goes toward a good cause.” Chen said that she and other editors were looking for events that have not occurred yet this

year so the readers would have a chance to attend the festivals without waiting for the following year. Other criteria were that the food items were synonymous with the area of the event and that the event is well established and ongoing. Festival Chairwoman Lori Nocito, who has been involved with

the festival for the past 14 years, is humbled by the thought that the local event, which she admits is a “labor of love,” will be reaching a large audience. “I think people really enjoy small-town festivals, but the quality in food and the events and entertainment is what draws them. We hope this proud tradi-

tion continues and attracts more people so they can enjoy. The entire committee is so dedicated.” Nocito said this isn’t the first time the festival has made national news. “Two years ago, the Washington Post did a full page story on the festival. People read it in the Post and wanted to come up to the festival.”

McLean, Argo win Pittston council nominations By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

There was no drama after all in the high-profile race for two Democratic nominations for Pittston council. Incumbents Joe McLean and Danny Argo were the top vote-getters and are virtually assured of winning election in November. One time running mates, McLean and Argo broke ranks and took on different running mates and campaigned as opponents this time around. McLean had asked his supporters to vote

for Kim Alfano, while Argo ran with Ginger Murphy. Poll numbers suggest coattails were not as important as incumbency. McLean was the top vote-getter with 669 and Argo was second at 565 just 33 ahead of Alfano. Though Alfano came close, the numbers mean 104 voters who voted for McLean did not vote for Alfano. Murphy got 431 votes meaning 96 Argo voters voted for someone other than Murphy. It seems likely, given the numbers, that some voters voted for

both men despite their positioning themselves as opponents. Argo said incumbency helped him and McLean. “I’ve been around. This is my third time. I’ve already proven I get things done. A majority of voters were happy to keep me in. Mr. McLean has been in there just as long as I have and he was backed by hierarchy of city hall. And others took 336 votes. Who knows where they would have went. I think some of them would have voted for Ginger,” Argo said. Frank Sheperis got 168 votes

and Barb Zangre 152. McLean did better than he expected. “I was surprised I did so well,” he said. “I thought there might be a backlash over the sewer fee, but I guess people realized the sewers are necessary. We have to take care of our infrastructure or there could be a major incident.” Of Argo McLean quipped, “If he’s the voice of the people, I must be the conscience.” Argo has been the lone “no” vote in several 4-1 votes during his two terms, but he said it’s not fair to label him as being anti-

progress. “I basically vote yes over 90 percent of the time,” he said. “In most cases me voting no isn’t going to mean anything. I hope I never have to vote no, but when something I don’t like comes up, I’ll speak my mind.” McLean said he’s willing to work with Argo. “I’m going to have to sit next to him,” McLean said. “Maybe we won’t be friendly, but we have to have a working relationship.” Argo said they may even be friendly again. “I would hope we would be after time goes by.”

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq. In a split decision, a federal appeals court in New York has overturned a Vermont law seeking to restrict the use of prescription drug data in the marketing of pharmaceuticals to physicians. *** A new federal law will give the FBI authority over crimes that occur on cruise ships that have docked at U.S. ports. *** Arizona has joined Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, Rhode Island and Washington, who have all removed state-level criminal penalties for the medical use and cultivation of marijuana. *** The Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010 has eliminated complicated tax regulations regarding depreciation and substantiating deductions faced by every business that provided its employees with cell phones, making it much easier for businesses to deduct cell phone expenses. *** The Mississippi Supreme Court has ruled that insurance companies must cover damage from a hurricane’s wind even if the home is later inundated by storm surge.

While the U.S. Olympics pays for team members’ travel, the Paralympics does not, so Jallen said she appreciates all the small community fundraisers that add up and help defray her expenses.

tephanie Jallen was surprised Thursday night with a phone call from the director of the United States Olympic Committee to inform her that she’s been accepted as a member on the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team. She will now travel/train with the team throughout the world to prepare for the World Cup and Paralympic Games. This is a major stepping stone on her journey to the 2014 Para-

class, center Director Fred Lokuta said. Lokuta first met Jallen at a fundraiser for her in Scranton and asked her to speak to the leadership class at the center “Stephanie was selected as their legacy project. So they organized their efforts, and a lot of work went into a number of fundraising projects that culminated into the check being presented to Stephanie this evening,” Lokuta said. A member of the U.S. Ski Team, Jallen has achieved her high ranking through competing in Alpine ski racing on the slalom, giant slalom, downhill and super-G (super giant slalom) in the face of dealing with CHILD Syndrome, a congenital birth defect that caused her to be born with one arm and one leg. CHILD is an acronym for Congenital Hemidysplasia with Ichthyosiform erythroderma and Limb Defects. Jallen spends about three months each winter traveling

OUR OPINION

Just do it Interesting how two words can ruffle so many feathers. The words, which appeared in an editorial here last week: no nepotism. We wrote last Sunday, two days before the primary election that we, as a matter of policy, do not endorse candidates, but we will endorse an idea. The idea was no nepotism. We pointed out that some candidates in the school board primary elections at Pittston Area and Wyoming Area campaigned on a no nepotism platform, saying the first thing they would do if elected would be to enact a no nepotism policy. We applauded that. Since these candidates were on record, we mentioned them by name. And that caused a bit of an uproar. Some of the candidates not mentioned, simply because they were not espousing a no nepotism platform, were upset saying they were also against nepotism in hiring practices. One, an incumbent, said he never hired a relative and never will and felt he was unjustly impugned by the editorial since his name was not included. He did admit the concept of no nepotism was not mentioned by him or his running mates in their campaign. Our intent was not to point fingers but to encourage a policy that would actually prevent fingers from being pointed. Yes, a no nepotism policy seems unfair by eliminating potential good teachers just because they are related to school board members. The answer to that is to not run for school board if you anticipate such a situation occurring during your tenure. That may seem unfair but it is no more unfair than potential teachers having no chance at all at a job purely because they have no connections. For the record, the no nepotism stance may not have been as big an issue with voters, especially at Pittston Area, as might have been expected. For those on school boards who were upset at last week’s editorial, we offer some advice, in three words instead of two: just do it. Enact a no nepotism policy and all of this controversy immediately goes away.

Student art adorns JA Mericle Center

Young students from Arts YOUniverse worked hard over the past few months to create beautiful paintings that are now displayed at the JA Mericle Family Center for Enterprise Education in Pittston Township. “The paintings are beautifully crafted by such young artists, I am impressed by their talent and am excited that other students in the area will have a chance to see them”, said Paul Francis, Senior Program Director of Junior Achievement of Northeastern PA, Inc. This year, approximately 7,500 students will visit the Center to participate in JA BizTown or JA Finance Park. For more information about Arts YOUniverse please visit http://www.artsyouniverse.com/.

YOUR OPINION

Takes issue with Smiles column about WA police Concerning Jack Smiles’ column on May 5 and its references to the Wyoming Area Police Department, Wyoming Area has had police presence in our schools since 1998. In 2007 The Luzerne County Sheriffs Department started protecting our children and did so until Sheriff Savokinas was elected. After he was elected, he made the decision to remove the department’s presence from all schools. The Wyoming Area Police Department was created out of a necessity not nepotism. Since 1996, there have been dozens of documented incidents of school violence in the United States; including Littleton, CO; Richmond, VA; Nickels Mine, PA; Williamsport,PA; Dover, DE. Safety and security are the second level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, just above food, clothing and shelter, no educational program can be effective if the students do not feel safe and secure in the environment.

One of the main concerns of parents of Wyoming Area is that their children have a safe learning environment. For Wyoming Area School District to not have a police presence in the schools would be a complete disservice. Furthermore, I ask you to provide an example of a local school district that does not have some type of police department or law enforcement presence. As far as the successful person for the position, two individuals applied for the job and the Board chose the candidate that had the most experience. That’s a fact. You can make all the fun you want about the police and the cars and what ever else you want. We all long for the days when the streets were safe and presence of police meant that you did something wrong. However, those days are past. We must do what we need to do, as I am now with this letter. David Alberigi

Little girl, back

own bunion four years ago that I rushed her to my cousin, the podiatrist, who performed the equivalent of emergency open-heart surgery on her teeny, tiny little foot malformation. And, here is what she does not enjoy about her father: His giggle in response to anything she deems “serious”, such as the fact that he refuses to pay more than $12.00 for jeans, his refusal of her plea for air conditioning, even though she claims her lipstick is melting in the “heat” of her cell, his awful dancing and his most criminal misstep: his love of high-fructose corn syrup and neon orange crunchy cheese products. Here is what her brothers do that she does not enjoy: Breathe. I thought she would become more accepting of our endearing, familial idiosyncrasies once she left for college, but … no. I’m hopeful that once she gets married and has children of her own, (well into her 30s), she will view me in a more understanding and forgiving light. You really don’t understand an insane mother until you become an insane mother. I just pray to God her babies do not smack their formula too loudly or chomp on their binky like a cow chewing their cud. Otherwise, I fear for them. But, to be honest, there is much that I do enjoy about her. She is tough on me but she is also loving. She’s the only person who can approach me with a molten vat of wax, a Popsicle stick and a smirk and proclaim: “Time to wax your ‘stache, Maria!” And I actually let her. Wax my ‘stache. I’m afraid not to. I have decided to ignore the sheer enjoyment she gets from this little hair-removal procedure and the extraction of my top layer of upper-lip epidermis. She will run any number of errands for me, even the hugely humiliating ones. I won’t detail those here, but they usually entail a trip to the Feminine Care aisle at CVS. When I underwent surgery for my breast cancer, she came home from college repeatedly without a second’s hesitation to take care of her father and brothers. I never asked and I never had to. She just knew. She still tells me she loves me. After every phone call and before every good night. And, most amazing, I think she is proud of me sometimes. Until she reads this column, anyway. Then, she will come after me with hot wax and it won’t have anything to do with my ‘stache. Daughters are like a bra with six hooks. Annoying, itchy and infuriating … but a necessary and comforting source of eternal uplift and support. Maria Heck makes her kids proud of her – not to mention her husband – every other week in this space.

Emergencies and food Earlier this week rain was in our forecast almost every day and several other states’ forecast too. It is a four letter word, and if you are familiar with the movie “Bugs Life Year,” you will know that the grasshoppers reacted to rain just like us humans do, especially when damage from rain water overflows into our personal properties. Rain is out of our human control, however, being a bit better prepared is not. Now is a good time to review some basic how to’s to prepare for a possible weather emergency. Penn State Extension has a publication “Preparing for Emergencies, a Consumer Guide,” which can be accessed via the web link below, or call our office for a copy to be sent to you. USDA Food Safety Inspection Service also has a wealth of information on their web site. Meanwhile USDA recommends that we take these actions before an emergency takes place. Keep these recommendations for future reference. 1. Keep an appliance thermometer in the refrigerator and freezer. An appliance thermometer will indicate the temperature inside the refrigerator and freezer in case of a power outage and help determine the safety of the food. Make sure the freezer is at 0°F or below and the refrigerator is at 40°F or below. 2. If you have room, freeze containers of water for ice to help keep food cold in the freezer, refrigerator or coolers after the power is out. This is a good idea to do as an energy saver if you do not keep your freezer full. In addition, purchase or make ice and store in the freezer for use in the refrigerator or in a cooler. Other options are Freeze gel packs and freeze pops. These can be used in the freezer itself to keep it cold or in a cooler. 3. Plan ahead and know where dry ice and block ice can be purchased. 4. Have coolers on hand to keep refrigerator food cold if the power will be out for more than 4 hours. If the power goes out, quickly group food together in the freezer — this helps the food stay cold longer. 5. Store food on shelves that will be safely out of the way of contaminated water in case of flooding. If you are one of the unlucky ones and need to make some decisions on whether or not food is safe to eat after an emergency, here are the guidelines to keep in mind: 1. Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to maintain the cold temperature. 2. The refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if it is unopened. A full freezer will hold the temperature for approximately 48 hours (24 hours if it is half full) and the door remains closed. 3. Discard refrigerated perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, soft cheeses, milk, eggs, leftovers and deli items after 4 hours without power. 4. Foods in the freezer may be safely refrozen if they contains ice crystals or are at 40°F or below when checked with a food thermometer. 5. Obtain dry or block ice to keep your refrigerator and freezer as cold as possible if the power is going to be out for a prolonged period of time. Fifty pounds of dry ice should hold an 18-cubic-foot full freezer for 2 days. 6. If a thermometer has not been kept in the freezer, check each package of food to determine its safety. If the food still contains ice crystals, the food is safe to either refreeze or cook and then refreeze. See NUTRITION, Page 31

The sparrow has returned to the nest. I think the sparrow is the species of birds with the most incessant and irksome squawk, right? She has flown from her dorm room, where there are no rules, regulations, curfews or me, and has secured her place back in the family hierarchy as Queen of Everything and All Things Her Way. Oh, you know we love her. And she loves us. I think she loves us. I’m pretty sure she loves us. I know she loves me when she sneers at my Wonder Bread offering and needs my money to purchase organic, 110 grain, pesticide and gluten-free bread (or maybe that’s her shampoo), and decides that $6.99 a loaf is well worth a happy, operational intestine. She loves me when I hand her the cars keys to a vehicle that is free of dents but not free of air-conditioning, as her own ride is, and I know she loves me when I surprise her with brown, macrobiotic, cage-free eggs for breakfast. (I actually just saved the macrobiotic, cage-free carton from her purchase last year and just put plain, old caged and inorganic eggs in there. I’m no dummy.) Anyway. Sigh. They fly away and things change. But some things don’t. Like her low threshold for anything that is too loud, too smelly, too much pontificating (and make that an annoyance to the third power when I am trying to watch my Dr. Phil) and of course, too much me. I am her Cliff Claven, her Steve Urkel, her Kramer, her Gilligan … I am her main source of uberirritaion. Here are things that my daughter does not enjoy about me, the woman who pushed out her cantaloupe-sized cranium after 31 hours of labor and couldn’t walk straight or sit without a donut pillow for three months: She doesn’t enjoy when I eat anything except marshmallows or air during Glee. This includes my recent inhalation, just hours ago, of Cheez-Its, Good n’ Plenty, Tums, beef jerky and a ladle of peanut butter. Most definitely does not enjoy when I drink anything during show time, either. Apparently I have an odd swallow reflex that sounds like a frog trying to ingest a pregnant ferret. There’s a visual. She hates when I don’t hear her the first time she makes any proclamation or query. She mumbles and I am old. I can’t hear my alarm in the morning, let alone a disgruntled 20 year-old asking me if I think she should buy soba noodles. From three floors away. I kid you not. She will not ever let me whine about anything. She does not want to hear it. The reverse of course, never holds true. If I say so much as: “My feet hurt”, she snipes: “There are people all over the world who have no shoes! So don’t you whine about your bunion!” She forgets that she was so concerned about her

Question In 1974, new moneymaking devices were popping up in the city of Pittston. What were they?

Peeking into the past With Judy Minsavage

Francis Yates, Sr., an early settler in the borough. In 1809, Joel Hale built the first frame house there. The two men were also believed to be the first to mine coal in the borough. 1974 – 37 Years Ago John Polak, of West Pittston and a senior at Wyoming Area High School, received a prestigious $6,000 scholarship from the William T. Morris Foundation. The scholarship is based on a students academic and leadership abilities. John was an Eagle Scout and planned to major in biology. William Thomas Morris after whom the scholarship was named was born in West Pittston the son of Thomas J and Jane Reese Thomas. Upon working his way up to the presidency of American Chain and Cable Company, William Morris focused his charitable nature on establishing the William T. Morris Foundation in 1937. The foundation contributes to religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational activities. To read more about the history of William T. Morris and the foundation go to the web site http://www.wtmf.org/history.htm. Sadie Cosgrove, president of the Pittston Swimming Pool Association, announced that the pool located on Market Street, would not open for the summer of 1974. To ensure public safety, repairs needed to be made, and funds were not available. Mrs. Cosgrove had seen the pool’s 800 family membership in its first year dwindle to just 300 families in 1973. The pool which was constructed in 1963, kept the $20 membership fee constant in all of its years of operation. The city of Pittston, while awaiting government funding, planned to purchase to the pool from the association for $70,000. Third grade students at the Luzerne Avenue School participated in a conservation project headed by their teacher Alyce Zura. The class planted Norway spruce seeds and learned about the function of trees in the environment. Louis Manganello, Ken Stackhouse Michelle Bonfanti, Dave Gavigan, Lynn Orth, Diane Zezza, Chris Shannon, Diana Mirro, Mary Giambra and John Chiampi were some of the students who

1984 – 27 Years Ago Mr and Mrs. Norman Saunders of Wyoming received an award from the Luzerne County Children and Youth Services. The couple not only raised nine children of their own, they were foster parents to 76 children during their marriage, some with special needs. Mr and Mrs. Saunders also had 26 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. According to the National Foster Parent Association web site, in 1853, Charles Loring Brace began the free foster home movement in New York. During the early 1900s, social agencies began to supervise foster parents. Records were kept the children’s individual needs were considered when placements were made, and the federal government began supporting state inspections of family foster homes. The Shantytown baseball team kicked off their Central League season hosting Swoyersville West Side Club. Baseball’s once strong foothold in Greater Pittston, was slipping to the growing popularity of softball. “Sunday Baseball” reigned supreme in Pittston for many years enjoyed by players and fans alike. But in 1984, Shantytown was finding interest and number of teams fielded dwindling. If anyone has photos of the Shantytown team, call me at 6020168. Theresa Romanowski of West Pittston and Angela Valenti both received academic scholarships from College Misericordia. Theresa ranked number two in a senior class of 264 students at Wyoming Area and Angela ranked number one in a class of 353 students at Pittston Area. Both girls planned to major in nursing. Vincent Carozza, Howard J. Fear, Ben Tielle, Sterling Simons, Drew Smith, Doug Roberts, Warren Pollard, Raymond Ramage, David Patrick and organist Catherine J. Fear under the direction of Joanne S. Austin were some of the members of the First United Methodist of West Pittston 30member choir. 1994 – 17 Years ago In 1994, the Pittston city pool was back in the news. In the 1970s the city and the Pittston Area School District

agreed to jointly operate the pool, both contributing to half of the cost of maintenance and operation which in 1994 totaled $25,000. Free to all residents, the pool was in need of repair due to vandalism and normal use. Superintendent of Pittston Area School District Frank Serino announced that for the first time in Pittston Area’s history, members of each graduating class would remain together as a group from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The district reorganized the schools based on the “successful implementation of the Kindergarten Center.” The beginning of the 94-95 school year would see Pittston City Elementary renamed Primary Center and Lincoln School renamed Intermediate Center. The West Pittston Library was celebrating its 120th year. Founded on September 12, 1873, the entire library contained 200 books and was located in the Post Office. In 1994, the library contained over 18,000 volumes, with an average yearly attendance of 17,000. The library has priceless photographs of the Greater Pittston flood of 1904. The icejammed Susquehanna River overflowed carrying gigantic blocks of ice onto city streets. Earl Hadley of Avoca and Leo Madden of Pittston were honored as Hibernians of the year in 1994. The Avoca Chapter of the Ancient Order was also celebrating its tenth anniversary. Hadley received the award for his tireless efforts for the fraternal organization and “Butch” Madden for initiating the creation of the Avoca chapter. The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic Irish-American Fraternal Organization founded in New York in 1836. The order traces its roots to a parent organization that in Ireland 300 years ago. Past honorees were Mayor James Haddock, James Timlin, Joe Corcoran, Alex Brogna and Thomas Durkin. Answer New double-headed parking meters were replacing the old pre-1950s style mechanisms on city streets. Street Superintendent “Tricky” Kridlo demonstrated the new mechanisms to police officer Joseph Capone, George Knitkowski, Nick Salerno and Ned Levey. The new meters took a nickel for a halfhour and a dime for one hour. A photo of the old style meter can be viewed at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FtLaudAntiqueCarMusParkingMeter1.jpg it.

1964 – 47 Years Ago The Pittston High School class of 1943 presented to the school a portrait of Frank Earley, superintendent of city schools in the 1950s. The former class members insisted that the portrait be placed in the main corridor of the High School. They also suggested that the portrait of Elizabeth G. Battle, predecessor of Superintendent Earley, which hung in the library, be placed alongside Mr. Earley’s portrait. It was the wish of the class that these portraits be in the same location and visible to those entering the school. The Pittston Area School District was created in 1966 by merging Pittston, Pittston Township, Hughestown, Dupont, Duryea, and Avoca School Districts. The first superintendent was Martin L. Mattei. After leaving Saigon, Vietnam in 1964, Joseph M. Cukauskas, HM2, U.S. Navy of Exeter, and two of his naval buddies took something very unusual to their new assignment in Taipei, Taiwan. While in Vietnam, the trio adopted a baby Bengal Tiger weighing about four pounds. The three men were the subject of a feature article in the Pacific issue of “Stars and Stripes” in which they detailed their difficult experiences with keeping the pet. The tiger was expected to reach a weight of 600 pounds and the men although attached to the cub planned on sending it to a zoo in the United States. Copies of the Pacific edition of the “Stars and Stripes, which began publication in that region in 1945, can be found online, as well as harrowing soldier’s stories of close encounters with the massive cats in the jungles of Vietnam. The construction location of the Pittston Area School was in question, after a state action moved to join the Pittston School District to the already formed Northeast School District. At the time, Roy Stauffer of Pittston offered a 33acre site in Pittston Township to the new district for $1.00. The land valued at $40,000 was partially excavated and ready for development. The school eventually was constructed in Yatesville. It opened in 1968. According to the web site luzernecounty.org Yatesville was named after

participated. Each classmate received the “Last Log Drive Coloring Book” detailing the Potlatch Company’s last log drive on the Clearwater River in North Idaho. The coloring book can be seen on Ebay. The log drives experienced from 1928 to 1971 are detailed at www.foresthistory.org.

Incumbent councilman ousted in Exeter Most candidates unopposed in local municipal elections By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Borough council nominations were on ballots in all nine local boroughs – Avoca, Dupont, Duryea, Exeter, Hughestown, West Pittston, West Wyoming, Wyoming and Yatesville. Of those only two, West Pittston and Wyoming, had Republican candidates on the ballot. And only Duryea, Exeter, West Pittston and one Avoca ward had contested races. In the other boroughs candidates were unopposed. The most surprising result in the boroughs was in Exeter where long-time incumbent councilman Rick Turner did not win a nomination. Democrats Denise Adams, John Morgan, Joseph J. Esposito and Larry Dellegrotto won the four nominations over Turner and Sharon Korba. Turner was the only incumbent to lose in any of the local races. Adams is an elected incumbent. Morgan was appointed to council after John Kizis resigned last September. Esposito is a former councilman and Dellegrotto is a political newcomer. Dellegrotto is a real estate broker, appraiser and educator. He

has lived in Exeter for eight years and is on the borough planning commission. “I worked hard. I went door-to-door,” Dellgrotto said. “I went out and got myself prepared to be a councilman.” “We,” he said referring to Korba who went with him, “went to courses at Penn State at Lake Lehman in zoning and municipal planning.” Dellgrotto was a member of Exeter First, a grass roots antiWalmart-in-Exeter organization, but he did not run against Walmart “I was involved in Exeter First, but not as involved as other people. I was concerned about method and manner with which the council and zoning handled the situation. It should have been more open and transparent. At the last planning commission meeting we voted to approve Walmart’s preliminary plan with a lot of conditions.” Dellgrotto and Korba won write-in nominations on the Republican side, so Korba will be on the November ballot as a Republican nominee. Dellegrotto said it wasn’t fun upsetting Turner. “I won, but I can still feel bad about it. He’s a good man and he served Exeter for years.”

In Wyoming there were no council contests as incumbents Frank Yurek, a Democrat, and Republicans Cheb Nalewajko and Bill Starr were unopposed in wards one, two and three respectively. Nalewajko also won the Democratic nomination with write-in votes. In West Wyoming incumbent Democrats Dan Gadomski, Gary Stavish and Eileen Cipriani were unopposed for three council nominations. In Hughestown council incumbents Edward Strubeck, Philip Falvo and Wayne Quick were unopposed for three Democratic nominations. In Dupont incumbent Jeffrey M. Kaminski and Brian Nesgoda were unopposed for two Democratic nominations for council seats. In Avoca Gary A. Halagarda was unopposed in ward one, Michael Fuller was unopposed in ward two. In ward three incumbent Joseph Satkowski defeated Susan LeLack. In Duryea a newcomer, Lois Hanczyc, was the top vote-getter for three council nominations. Incumbents Audrey Yager and Alfred Akulonis Jr. also won nominations over Lorraine Harmanos Henrich.

In Pittston Township Steven Rinaldi was unopposed on the Democratic supervisors’ ballot. On the Republican side Dale Newman was unopposed and barely held off a write-in 36-30. In West Pittston, where there were no Democratic candidates, incumbents Jim Rose, John Hood, and Peter Albano won the Republican nominations over former councilman Kevin Lescavage and newcomer Bill Bohn. But Lescavage won a write-in nomination on the Democratic side so he will be on the November ballot. In Yatesville mayor Vince Tossi was unopposed and incumbent councilmen Joseph Zambetti III, Christopher Lizza, and Paul Farber held off a challenge by Sal Alaimo. In Jenkins Township Stanley Rovinski was unopposed on the Democratic ballot for a six-year supervisor seat and Coreen A. Milazzo defeated Frank “Waxie” Vaxmonsky for nomination to a 2-year seat. In Exeter Township incumbent Republicans Donald J. Hoffman and James Dowse were unopposed for two supervisor seats and Jack Ruane was unopposed on the Democratic side. A minumum of 10 write-in

votes are required in borough council and township supervisor primary elections to get on the November ballot. The numbers of the write-in votes were official on Saturday, but a breakdown by names was not available at press time. There were Republican writein votes for council in Duryea (42), Yatesville (29), and West Wyoming (22) and for the sixyear (28) and two-year (50) Jenkins Township supervisor seats. Some or all of those write-ins could have been for the winning Democratic candidates who will then appear on the November ballots of both parties. Or it is possible there could be write-in Republican candidates on the November ballots in those towns. There were 117 write-in votes cast on the Democratic side in that Exeter Township race, so a second Democratic candidate will be on the November ballot for Exeter Township Supervisor. One poll-watcher in Exeter Township said Hoffman, one of the Republican candidates, may have collected most of those Democratic write-ins. If so, he will be on both ballots in November.

Golf Tournament

8-16, and August 3-8. “It’s an experience not to be missed,” observes Wilkes-Barre Salvation Army Captain Patty Richwine. “Time spent at camp can be a life-changing experience for kids. We are so grateful to our friends who sponsored these children.” Last summer, 34 children from the Wilkes-Barre area went to a weeklong camp where they played sports, swam, explored the outdoors and made crafts. Children ages 7-17 can have the opportunity to attend The Salvation Army camp at Camp Ladore in Waymart. The camp is owned and operated by The Salvation Army and consists of 1,200 acres of land surrounding a 265 acre lake. Programs contribute to the spiritual, educational, social, and

recreational needs of every camp. Transportation is provided to and from camp. Scholarships are based on need, with proper paperwork completed two weeks before camp. “School will be ending soon,” Richwine points out. “For some kids, going to Camp Ladore is the highlight of the whole summer.” Parents interested in sending their children to summer camp should register at The Salvation Army, 17 S. Pennsylvania Avenue, Wilkes-Barre. For more information, contact The Salvation Army at 570-824-8741.

tude.” James agreed that it was a lot to ask voters to pick 11 candidates. “We had16, but the Democrats had to pick 11 out of 33. It was a popularity contest. A lot voted for names, not people.” Jim Lewis, a voter from Wyoming borough, didn’t chose 11 county council candidates and may have been typical. “I voted for the ones I felt comfortable with,” he said. “I figured rather than vote for a ‘maybe’ and undercut the one I really wanted, I’d let them work it out.”

“I would have liked to see some other members of my team elected because they were truly concerned citizens and they want to help our county move forward,” Licata said. “But four out of eleven isn’t bad at all for a group of people who were never involved in county politics before.” Licata said his career, he was also a Pittston Area football coach, helped him win. “Because I was a teacher, taught many students over the years and met their parents, coached all those years and served with community organizations a lot of people know me, not only in the Greater Pittston area, but in other parts of the county. I really believed name recognition helped me. It didn’t hurt both Steve Urbans either,” he added. Like James, Licata didn’t rely on being known. “I tried to speak to and meet as many people as I could. I was out at least six days a week,” he said. “On many days I traveled to two and three different events. I met with as many different groups of voters as I could. I spoke to Latinos in Hazleton, a senior citizen group in WilkesBarre, the NAACP and everyone else that would have me. I learned it’s very difficult to run for a political office, not only for the candidate but also the candidate’s family.” There were 127,000 so-called “under votes” in the Republican county council races and 203,000 in the Democratic side. That means most of the voters did not vote for11candidates and many voted for one, two or even none. Licata said geography played a part. “I think some voters were worried that they would have no local representation on the council so they only voted for candidates from their community or area.” Again Licata talked about name recognition and its importance in a unique election like a new county council. “With the amount of candidates on the ballot a lot of people

voted for candidates they knew personally or names them were familiar with and then stopped,” Licata said. Licata came away impressed with the people he met. “The people I met were very friendly and receptive. I learned a lot from listening to them. I also met most of the Democratic County Council candidates and all of the candidates running for Judge. They are all good people, concerned about doing what is best for Luzerne County, solving its problems and helping it move forward. Each and every one of them has my respect and grati-

Thank you to all who supported my candidacy for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Luzerne County. Although I did not prevail in the election, I am immensely grateful to all of you who supported my campaign. I realize that this was my ambition, and I am appreciative to all of you for your help in my effort to achieve it. I appreciate the

confidence that you have in me and most importantly, I will always treasure our friendship. Please join me in congratulating all of the nominees and I encourage you to support them in the pursuit of justice. Gratefully yours. Your friend, Joe Saporito

Licata expresses gratitude to voters I would like to thank all the Democratic Voters of Luzerne County who put their faith and trust in me and my abilities and voted to nominate me for the position of Luzerne County Council. It is truly an honor and privilege for me. I also want to thank the Working Families Team and all others who helped make this possible. Congratulations to all the other men and women who gained nominations on their party ballots. Your success in the election

was proof of your hard work and determination. Finally, to all the other candidates, both Democrat and Republican, although you didn’t gain a position on the November ballot, you are most certainly winners. You took the time and effort to run for County Council and had the courage and strength of your convictions to face newspaper editors and reporters, television cameras, radio talk show hosts, political blogs and most importantly the voters of Lu-

zerne County. No easy task! You placed yourself in front of the public with the most honorable of intentions. You wanted to bring back honesty and integrity to our government and make Luzerne County a better place for its citizens. You walked the walk and wanted to make a difference. No one can take this away from you. I commend and thank you for doing this. Salvatore Licata Pittston

A few weeks ago, my eight year old daughter brought home an entry form to take part in this year’s West Pittston Cherry Blossom Idol festival. Well, being that West Pittston is my hometown, as well as my daughter’s home town, I wanted to consider this opportunity for my child. Something fun, something that she will remember. I recall when I was a little girl going to

the Cherry Blossom Festival was always something I looked forward to. Hearing the performances was always a treat, coupled with laughing with my friends, playing games, etc. As I stated, my child is eight and up to this point, she has never taken part in a competition. I feel, as a parent, eight years old is

More importantly, it will provide a fun event for all the people

of the Greater Pittston area, and it will help foster pride in the great events surrounding the founding of our great nation, especially for the youth of our area.

’Idol’ Continued from Page 31

far too young of an age to have to learn that she may not be good enough to win. While I can, I want to shield her from the realities of life, especially one that may make her feel less than excellent. Being on the fence, as I stated I was, I placed a call to the contact number on this registration form. My main concern was the winner/loser scenario and how the officials were going to present this “competition” to such young children. I was informed that although there will be a first place winner, all children will receive a prize of acknowledgement for participating. Obviously, neither I nor she would be interested in the prize but more so the fact that everyone leaves a winner. Based on the information presented to me, I felt confident that this “Idol Contest” would be held in a manner that would not

judge or upset my child. I presented the idea to my child and she wanted to be a part of it. She practiced for 14 days. Every chance she got. As soon as school let out for the day, my daughter would listen to the song on repeat, over and over again. She and I had talks of what may happen regarding winning and/or losing. I expressed to my child that everyone has an opinion and some people’s opinion may be different than mine. I informed her that although I feel she is the very best, someone judging may not. I also assured her that everyone leaves a winner. I assured her that no matter the winner, everyone gets a prize. She was very excited. We talked about different ways to calm her nerves. This was a big deal for her which in turn was a big deal for me. She knew which outfit she’d wear days before the show. Well, we reported to the stage at noon. We registered, obtained our number and gave our CD to the sound technician. Every-

thing was a go. I sat with my video recorder ready and my child stood in line awaiting her turn. Her number was called. She began by announcing her name and the song she’d be singing. She began. I was so proud of my little gal, having the courage to sing in front of all of those faces. As proud as a mother could be! For reasons I am not aware of, her song began to skip. Constantly and repeatedly. She kept up with the confusion but I could see in her eyes the nervousness. Thankfully, it was announced that due to the equipment malfunctioning, my child would be given a second chance. She had her second chance, the song repeatedly skipped… she did a great job keeping up but the skipping made her performance a bit difficult. All in all, she did a fantastic job, she smiled… kept her chin up and most was well. The few things that were not well… things that may seem petty to most… but for a mother whose child put quite the effort

into this contest, the issues hurt my feelings and hurt the feelings of my child. After every child sang, the judges judged. Now, I understand this was a contest and judging is a part of competition, but for children of such a young age to be judged, from the very first negative comment, I knew that I should not have allowed my child to participate. “Your performance lacked choreography”, “you should have smiled”, “you should have used your diaphragm”, etc. Well, this is just my opinion but in a world where children already are struggling to be themselves, why criticize them for wrong doings… why not instead encourage them and compliment them. Some of those kids on that stage Sunday afternoon were frightful. Standing in front of a bunch of strangers is quite the nerve racking experience. Especially for little ones… And when it was all said and done, the winners were chosen and the children who were not

winners were not acknowledged. No consolation prizes were given, the children left the stage and the event was over. I am deeply disappointed in myself for allowing my child to be taught her very first lesson in competitiveness by The West Pittston Cherry Blossom Festival Idol Contest. She was hungry for acknowledgement but clearly learned in the wrong manner that giving her best had very little impact on the events that day. She, as well as the other children, should have been given endless praise for the courage they mustered up. They should have been acknowledged for the good they did, rather than being left to stand in the backdrop, behind the winners. Some might say, ‘In life, there is always someone better than oneself.’ I disagree with that statement. There is unrepeatable grace and individuality in the lives of each child. Teaching them otherwise is abhorrent. Lisa Caruthers West Pittston

Appreciates effort of letter Hose Company launches fund drive carriers in food drive The CEO/Weinberg Food Bank sincerely appreciates the participation of local letter carriers, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the U.S. Postal Service in Stamp Out Hunger 2011, the nation’s largest singleday food drive. Without the willingness of letter carriers to collect donated food while delivering mail on May 14, this charitable food drive would not be possible. We are grateful to hundreds of families along the mail routes who contributed non-perishable food. Volunteer food drives make an enormous impact on hunger here

in Northeastern PA. As the local affiliate of Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, the CEO/Weinberg Food Bank fights hunger year round. With a continuation of challenging economic conditions, thousands of our neighbors, including far too many children, are hungry or lack a dependable supply of food. On their behalf, we extend our boundless thanks to our local letter carriers and food donors in their generous efforts to Stamp Out Hunger. Judge Hugh F. Mundy President

Thank you note A special thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the annual Nite at the Races that was held on Saturday, February 26, at the Seton catholic Cafeteria, Pittston. Your support was greatly ap-

preciated. The proceeds will benefit the societies’ projects and the parish From The Holy Name Society and The Altar and Rosary Society Of St. John the Evangelist Parish.

The members of the Hughestown Hose Company announce that the 2011Annual Fund for the Hose Company has just started. This drive is a major source of the Hose Company’s financial well-being. In particular, the drive makes it possible for the firefighters to manage their dayto-day operations. This includes utility bill payment and building maintenance costs. The Hose Company is requesting that each residence contribute $25 for this year’s drive. A donation letter was recently sent to each residence and business. Everyone is asked to make their donation return by June 15. Residents and businesses are reminded that the Ambulance Fund Drive is scheduled to begin on September 1. The Ambulance Drive is a separate donation drive which serves to reduce the costs associated with the operation of the Borough’s ambulance service.

Borough receives $461,000 grant for compost program At Tuesday regular monthly council meeting is was announced that Dupont Borough has received official notice from the Pennsylvania State Gaming Commission that they have been awarded more than $461,000 in gaming grant funds for the purchase of machinery to convert yard waste into compost. Dupont Council applied for the funding and requested the involvement of six surrounding communities: Avoca, Duryea, Hughestown, Jenkins Twp, Laflin and Pittston. Councilman Stan Knick, who initiated the idea of using the Borough’s 33 acre parcel on Commerce and Garden Drive as a recycling site, will be meeting with Dupont officials, as well as the involved communities, in the near future to work on a plan of action on the use of the machinery. Once operations begin, Dupont residents will be given compost free of charge. The municipalities will also look into selling leftover compost. In other business, Borough Manager, Patty McDonald reported on the upcoming construction projects in the Borough: street paving project for Coolidge, Oak, Atwell, Pine, Wood Gedding and Bridge will begin on May 23; the traffic light project at the Heidleberg Bridge/ Dupont-Avoca is scheduled to being on July 1; traffic light at Lackawanna/Main/Chestnut/ Airport Rd/Holden & Everhart will being on June 1 with paving of Route 315-Main St/Chestnut plus handicap sidewalk ramps. Also, blocked drains on Suscon Road, Bear Creek Rd. and SR 2059 will be cleaned by Luzerne County by June 1. McDonald said she received a letter from PennDOT regarding upcoming projects and completed projects. PennDOT reported that the work on Route 315 at the bottom of Suscon Road is complete where the water break occurred. McDonald, however, said she the project was not completed correctly. PennDOT patched blacktop where there was previously a concrete rubble strip island, she said. The Commerce Road project should be completed by June 30, she reported. Popple Construc-

tion is finishing up with the entrance sign and island work along with the street signs at the intersections. Once that is done borough officials will have a final walk thru. Council President Knick said he hopes this will help with truck traffic through town with new signage and also with the proposed airport access road project that is moving forward. Tentatively the project is scheduled for November of this year, however, there are a few issues pending that may push the date back. Completion date for the access road is 2014. Knick, Fire Chief Don Hudzinski and Tony Gangemi from PA American Water Co. have had conversations regarding the borough sponsoring a project to paint the fire hydrants in town. Hudzinski has provided the color coding for the different locations based on the pressure flow of yellow, green, orange, red, and blue for the top of the valves. Knick noted he would like to see council members come out and complete this project. Borough Manager McDonald noted that the Water Company is looking into whether a waiver is needed for those involved in painting the hydrants for liability/safety reasons. Refuse Bags

Connor Mangan Eagle project: a welcome sign Plans complete for annual West Pittston/Exeter Memorial Day Parade Conner Mangan, a Life Scout in Boy Scout Troop 302, is currently working on the rank of Eagle Scout. To fulfill one of the requirements for this rank, he must complete a community service project. His goal is to replace the “Welcome to West Pittston” sign on the corner of Erie and Wyoming avenues. The new sign will be constructed of an eco friendly and durable composite, Mangan said. He will also beautify the area around the sign with new landscaping. This project will cost approximately $3000 and even the smallest donation will help him achieve his goal. Checks can be made out to Boy Scout Troop 302 and sent to 1250 Wyoming Ave, Exeter 18643. This project does not benefit the Boy Scouts of America in any way and all money raised will be used to enhance the community. Memorial Day

Warriors spike Hawks in finale Wyoming Area beat Hanover in sixth win of season

By Matt Page

Dispatch Correspondent

While it was raining outside, it was thundering inside the gym as the Wyoming Area pounded the ball to the floor en route to a 25-9, 25-14, 25-12 three game sweep of Hanover Area on Thursday in Exeter. Wyoming Area may have played its best game of the season, and it came in the final game of the year and the final game of the careers of all but one Warrior. “They played well,” said Coach Noah Pickett. “I joked with them that they peaked in the last game of the season, but they really came along…they looked good, I’m proud of them.” After falling behind 4-3 early in the first game, Chris Evans scored four of the Warriors next seven points, three of those being aces, to take a 10-4 lead. Then after a Hanover Area point, Tony Richards set the ball to Kevin Thompson for a big kill, starting another Warrior rally. During that six-point rally, Cody Gates came up with two big blocks giving WA a 17-6 lead. A Hanover Area point stopped the rally, but Gates picked up where the rally left off. Richards set the ball to Gates who blasted the ball to the floor for the kill. Then Gates stuffed another Hanover Area attempt followed by a Richards kill giving WA a 20-7 lead. Richards recorded two aces during the final five points as WA owned the first game 25-9. The Warriors came out firing in game-two, storming to an early 5-1 lead. Richards set up Gates for the first point then Gates denied the Hawkeye attack for the second point. Dylan Reedy came up with an ace for the third point, then Richards set up Evans and Gates for points four and five.

Both teams scored two points before Gates came up with the biggest hit of the day. Richards set the ball and Gates attacked it aggressively, smashing the ball off the head of a Hawkeye, who appeared to not even see the ball. Hanover Area responded with a point but then the Warriors went on another six-point run. Larry Popovich started the run with a kill, then Richards set up Thompson and Evans followed with an ace. Popovich had another big kill and Evans had another ace before Richards set up Reedy for the kill giving WA a 14-4 advantage. Hanover Area went on a 4-1 run before WA responded with two points putting the Warriors up 17-8. After a Hawkeye point, the Warriors rattled off five points on two Hanover Area miscues, a kill and an ace by Reedy and a kill by Gates. Hanover then scored two points but WA answered on a big kill by Evans and an ace by Richards. Then Thompson added a kill to give the Warriors a 25-14 game-two win. After falling behind 5-2 in the third game, WA scored four straight points before another point by HA tying the game at six. That was the last time the game was close, as the Warriors rallied off six consecutive points on two errors by Hanover Area, two points by Reedy and two aces by Evans. Hanover Area scored the next two points to cut the lead to 12-8 but WA responded with three points including a huge smash by Popovich. Both teams exchanged the next few points and WA held a 19-12 lead. Richards scored five of the final six points on a kill and four consecutive aces before Thompson iced the game with a kill givSee VOLLEYBALL, Page 51

Soccer teams miss out on playoffs Lady Patriots, Lady Warriors fall short of qualifying for last spring tourney By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Both Pittston Area and Wyoming Area missed out on the final District 2 Girls’ Spring Soccer Championships even after turning in successful seasons as both the Lady Patriots and Lady Warriors finished at the .500 mark. Pittston Area fell short of landing one of the two bids that the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2A received in the 10-teams tournament. The Lady Patriots finished third at 6-6-1 behind division champ Honesdale (11-2) and runner-up North Pocono (7-4-2), both of which qualified for the championships. This is the last season for spring soccer in District 2 as the PIAA has remanded that all girls’ soccer be played in the fall. Pittston Area’s season was highlighted by wins over playoff-bound North

Pocono, and rival Wyoming Area. Wyoming Area also missed out as the WVC Division 2B was only awarded one berth in the tournament. WVC Division 1A was given four berths into the tournament (out of five teams), and WVC Division 1B was awarded three spots. The WVC divisions were split by strength of program in the final year of spring soccer. The Lady Warriors finished the season with a 6-6-1 record, which was highlighted by victories over WVC Division 2A North Pocono (7-4-2) and Wyoming Seminary (5-7-1). Four of WA’s six losses game to the two teams that finished ahead of them in the WVC Division 2B standings, champion Meyers (9-2-2), and runner-up Tunkhannock (9-3-1). WA 0, Honesdale 2

Wyoming Area closed out its season with a 2-0 loss to Honesdale in a Wyom-

ing Valley Conference Division 2 crossover game on Thursday afternoon in Wayne County. Megan Yurek stopped eight shots in goal for the Lady Warriors against the WVC Division 2A champion Lady Hornets. Statistics

Diamond post-season spots far from settled Six local teams await word on opening round games By Rick Notari

Softball

In the District 2 3A tournament which will feature Wyoming Area and Pittston Area, the top spot was set with LLD2 champ Valley View (13-0). The No. 2 seed was up for grabs between Dallas (10-3) and Tunkhannock (9-4). Depending on their final games, the team with the better record would win the WVC Division IWest.

The Lady Warriors were in position to earn the No. 9 seed in the 14-team tournament. But if Honesdale (3-9) could bump WA with games left against Scranton (111) and West Scranton (6-7). Should Wyoming Area remain the No. 9 team, they could take on North Pocono (6-6) or West Scranton (6-7) in Tuesday’s opening round. The Lady Warriors beat North Pocono in a pre-season game. Pittston Area (3-11) looks to be the No. 13 seed heading into today’s game with Crestwood. If the Lady Patriots upset the Lady Comets they could bump up to the No. 12 seed. PA would travel to Scranton to face Prep (8-4) as the No. 13 seed or Berwick (8-5) as the No. 12 seed. In the District 2 1A tournament, things are just as unsettled. Old Forge – the three-time defending champion – is the No. 6 seed as of Friday. A win by the Blue Devils against Riverside today would more than likely push them into the No. 5 slot. Forest City (4-8) is ahead of Old Forge (4-9) right now but could finish 4-10 with games left against Mt. View (5-6) and Montrose (8-4).

Regardless of the outcomes, Old Forge will be on the road on Wednesday against either Freeland MMI (7-6) or Mt. View. But where the Blue Devils finish is important as to whom they could face if they win their opening round game. If Old Forge finishes sixth, they would be matched up with top-seeded Northwest (11-1) in a possible semifinal matchup. Should the Blue Devils finish fifth, they would matchup with small-school nemesis Blue Ridge (11-2) in the semis. Baseball

In the District 2 3A tournament only Wyoming Area (7-7) and Valley View (13-1) had completed their seasons as of Friday. The Cougars were set to be the top-seed in the tournament while the Warriors could end up anywhere from seventh to tenth. Should Pittston Area (10-3) win the WVC Division I-East, it could finish as the No. 2 seed at best and No. 4 seed at worse, but would probably project as the No. 3 seed looking at remaining oppoSee DIAMONDS, Page 51

Countless days of delays and postponements from a rain-soaked April and May schedule have caught up with high school baseball and softball teams as we enter what was to be the first week of the District 2 playoffs. Over 60 baseball and softball games were scheduled to be played between this past Friday and Monday in both the Wyoming Valley Conference and Lackawanna League as teams crammed to get in finals games before the D2 deadline. Some schools – like Western Wayne – had four softball games yet to be played, while others like Riverside had to schedule around its Friday prom. And there was no guarantee that the weather was going to cooperate this weekend. So come this morning, it’s probably best to check either www.timesleader.com or www.piaad2.org to see exactly where the Dispatch-area teams stand. Both the Wyoming Area baseball and softball teams had completed their seasons as of Friday with the Warriors post-

ing a 7-7 record and the Lady Warriors finishing 4-10. The Pittston Area baseball team played yesterday against Crestwood after Dispatch deadlines, and were set to face Holy Redeemer on Monday. A win in either game gave the WVC Division I-East championship to the Patriots. The Old Forge baseball team was slated to complete its Lackawanna League Division II schedule yesterday after Dispatch deadlines against arch-rival Riverside, and the Blue Devils softball team is finishing up today against the Lady Vikes in a suspended game from Thursday. Here are some projections as of the division standings on Friday afternoon.

Wyoming Area dropped its WVC Division 2 finale against Berwick, 8-6, on Monday afternoon in Columbia County. The Lady Warriors had a rally stopped short in the top of the seventh when they scored three runs to close to within the final. Melissa Eipper led Wyoming Area at the plate with three hits and an RBI. Kaitlyn Kross added two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI, and Nicole Turner smacked a two-run home run among her two hits. Adrianne Pryzbyla and Serra Degnan also added two hits and an RBI each, and Kayla Kross and Riley Thomas each chipped in with two hits for the Lady Warriors (4-10).

Holy Redeemer sophomore distance runner Marissa Durako continued to make her mark on the district stage, winning two more gold medals at Monday’s District 2 Class 2A Championship Meet on Monday at Scranton Memorial Stadium. The Laflin resident won District 2 Class 2A Cross Country gold this past fall, giving her three gold medals in her young career. Durako won the 1600m and 3200m distance races as the Lady Royals won the overall team title. The former Wyoming Area Catholic student won the 1600m in a time of 5:17.95, catching runner-up Maria Trowbridge of Elk Lake (5:18.10) just before crossing the tape, and dominated the 3200m field, winning by almost 40 seconds over Trowbridge with a time of 11:19.53. “It’s so good for our training that we always train together,” said Durako of the Lady Royals 1-3-4 finish in both the 1600m and 3200m races. “We make each other better. “It’s so good to have teammates behind and with you.” The two victories qualify Durako for the PIAA Class 2A Track & Field Championships which will be held next weekend at Shippensburg University. Durako wasn’t the only Greater Pittston athlete to succeed at the district event. Lauren Bernardi of Pittston was part of the Holy Redeemer silver medal 4 x 800m Relay team which also qualified for the PIAA Meet. Bernardi ran the lead leg of the Lady Royals 9:57:19 time in the event. She also earned a fourth-place medal in the 800m with a time of 2:27.02. Marnie Kusakavitch won bronze in the 100m dash with a time of 12.60. Kusakavitch – who qualified for the PIAA Meet with her time - finished behind Lackawanna Trail’s Lauren Ellsworth, who set a meet record with a time of 12.22, and Holy Cross’s Nikolette McCloe. Her sister Melanie Kusakavitch placed eight in the 100m with a time of 13.58, and her other sister, Mallory Kusakavitch placed fifth in the 800m with a time of 2:27.51. Melanie and Marnie also won a fourth-place medal as part of the HR 4 x 400m Relay team. On the boys’ side, West Pittston’s Tim Lambert earned a silver medal in as part of the Holy Redeemer 4 x 800m Relay team which posted a time of 8:24.40 to finish behind Elk Lake.

nents. Now that you are hopelessly confused, here are the possibles for the Patriots and Warriors. Valley View and Tunkhannock (11-2) look to be set at No. 1 and No. 2 with Pittston Area ready to earn the No. 3 seed unless West Scranton (11-2) can beat out Scranton (12-1) for the Lackawanna League Division I title. Scranton would need to lose to Honesdale (4-8). So the Patriots are currently set to face Nanticoke (2-11) or Crestwood (2-11) on Tuesday when the tournament gets underway. Wyoming Area is in a spot where they must wait on Dallas (8-5), Abington Heights (6-6), Scranton Prep (6-7) and North Pocono (6-7) to finish their scheduled. Should the Warriors remain at the No. 8 spot – where they were on Friday afternoon – they would host either Scranton

Prep or North Pocono. Should they bump up to No. 7 or drop to No. 9 or No. 10, Wyoming Area would still face either the Cavaliers or Trojans, but could also see Abington Heights depending on the remaining schedule. In the D2 Class 1A tournament, Old Forge – the four-time defending champions – will be seeded No. 2 and host winless Forest City (0-12) on Tuesday at Pagnotti Park at 4:30 p.m. The Blue Devils are seeded behind Lackawanna Trail (12-1), the LLD3 champs. Old Forge beat the Lions for last year’s title when Tony Goodall tossed a nohitter. Blue Ridge (7-6) is the third seed and will host Susquehanna (2-9). Freeland MMI (5-8) is the fourth seed and will host Wyoming Seminary (4-8). A win by the Blue Devils would set up another home game against either Blue Ridge or Susquehanna.

Lady Patriots win two Pittston Area suffered a loss at the bats of Crestwood in Monday’s contest. The Lady Patriots never gave up coming within one run, but falling just short in the 5-4 loss. The Lady Patriots jumped out to an early lead 1-0 in the bottom of the first. Crestwood then plated two on a triple to left center in the third. PA then tied the game when Taylor Baloga singled and scored on a Liz Cappelloni RBI single. Crestwood answered back with three in the fifth but the Lady Patriots put up one last stand scoring two in the seventh inning off of hits by Theresa Domarasky, Julie Silinskie and Megan Karuzie. But the rally fell short. Baloga suffered the loss giving up five earned runs and 10 hits, but struck out eight and didn’t allow a walk. “It was a hard loss for us, but now we realize there is still more work to be done. We can’t just settle and be content. Other teams are getting better, so we have to get better,” said Coach Stephanie Griffin. The team bounced back against Nanticoke on Tuesday in a 9-5 win. The Pats put up eight runs in the first three frames to Nanticoke’s one. Theresa Domarasky and Adison Hazlet reached base to start the game and both

scored on a Laruen Dragon single. Dragon, Hazlet, and Domarasky would prove as keys in the game all scoring twice. Julie Silinskie, Mindina Lieback, and Allie Barber would account for the other three runs. The Lady Patriots had seven hits in the game by Dragon, Karuzie, Lieback, and Allie Barber. Domarasky posted a perfect 3-for-3 day while adding a walk. "I told them it was up to them what they wanted to do after yesterday’s game. Today they told me they wanted to keep working and win. We came out on fire, which was important, and I’m proud of the way they bounced back today," Griffin said. Baloga threw a two-hit, shut out on Thursday when the Lady Patriots took on Coughlin. Pittston Area put up nine runs on 12 hits. Lauren Dragon and Megan Karuzie had multiple hits in the game supplemented by hits from Adison Hazlet, Mindina Lieback, Liz Cappelloni and Kassity Roche. Amanda Radginski added a homerun and Kaitlin Loftus tripled down the first base line for PA. The Patriots are now 6-5 on the season and look to secure the first winning record for the Junior High in over four years when they play Berwick on Tuesday.

Watch out for ticks and poison ivy I’m looking for a little sympathy here. You have no idea what it’s like being an outdoor reporter during the fifth wetness spring on record? More than half of the stories we had set up for this week had to cancel because of the storm front that parked itself over the state. Don’t get me wrong, real dedicated outdoor enthusiasts wouldn’t change their plans because of a little sprinkle or two and I consider myself one of those people. It’s just that our $40,000 camera gear can only withstand so much water before it simply stops working and that’s with rain gear. It has truly been a nightmare of a spring for videotaping outdoor stories. We did manage to get out for a story or two for Pennsylvania Outdoor Life over the past two weeks. The rain stopped long enough for us to follow up on a story we did in Schuylkill County on the re-introduction of Pheasants. The hope is to establish a reproducing population from a few hundred transplanted birds from Montana. We hit the fields, armed with radio telemetry receivers in search of collared hen pheasants. We found what we were looking for plus a few dozen ticks. Three weeks ago we noticed an increased number of ticks in both Wayne and Wyoming Counties as well. The ticks weren’t hard to find. After shooting the story, we headed back to the vehicles to take off our microphones. It was then that I noticed a tick crawling down the side of Pennsylvania Outdoor Life producer Brian Hollingshead’s face. I simply reached over and plucked it from his brow. That simple action turned out to be the beginning of a very uncomfortable afternoon. It seems like when you find one tick you start thinking that they are everywhere and it could send you into a never ending search for the little critters. This could drive you nuts. Our tick searches did discover several other hitch hiking members of the dog tick family. There are about 25 different ticks that call Pennsylvania home. While most of them are annoyances, only a few are known to carry diseases from an infected host to other uninfected hosts. The most common and

ers. Gently grasp the tick near its head or mouth. Don’t squeeze or crush the tick, but pull carefully and steadily. Once you’ve removed the entire tick, dispose of it and apply antiseptic to the bite area. General use of insect repellents will also help mosquitoes. This wet weather will surely bring on a large batch of these biting fly machines. Be sure to dump out any standing water before the bugs move in.

Poison Ivy

Jordan and Jessica Sleboda of Wyoming each bagged a turkey on the Youth Day Hunt. The twins will be 13 on May 30.

recognized carrier of disease is the deer tick. It is known to carry Lyme disease from infected mice and deer. I know several people who are still dealing with the effects of Lyme disease and it is no laughing matter. One outdoor writer from the Poconos ended up in intensive care because the Lyme disease spread to his heart. It is not a matter to take lightly. If you happen to be bitten by a tick, remember that signs and symptoms of Lyme disease begin to appear, well after that particular tick is long gone. These signs and symptoms include a rash, severe flu like symptoms, migratory joint pain and in some cases neurological problems like Bell’s palsy. This is not a complete list

of symptoms, so please visit your doctor if you are concerned. I do recommend that you talk about ticks and Lyme disease with your veterinarian if you have a dog or cat that spends time outside. I don’t want you to be so scared about ticks that you cancel your outdoors plans. There are a few safety measures you can take to prevent exposure to ticks: 1. Avoid areas with a lot of ticks as much as possible. Ticks prefer wooded and bushy areas with thigh grass and a lot of leaf litter. I find a lot of them around secluded swamps and wetlands that have a large deer population. 2. Keep ticks off your skin. Wear long pants and tuck your pants into your socks to keep

ticks off your skin. Light colored clothing will help you spot ticks more easily. 3. Use insect repellents on your skin. Look for EPA-registered repellents. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label carefully. A few repellents are designed to be sprayed onto clothing instead of directly on the skin. Ask your pediatrician about what repellents are safe for your child. 4. Check yourself, your children and your pets for ticks carefully and promptly remove ticks. Ticks usually need to feed for at least 36 hours in order to transmit Lyme disease, so daily tick checks and prompt removal of the ticks prevent infection. 5. Remove a tick with tweez-

I have also noticed an increased amount of poison ivy on my travels. Some researchers agree that poison ivy is growing bigger and bigger every year. Some say the increased amount of CO2 in the air is helping it to thrive. I don’t care what’s causing it. It is bigger and more widespread than ever and for some people it could mean a horrible rash and painful experience. Remember that all poison ivy has three leaves, but there are other plants with three leaves as well. If you’re not sure, leave it alone. You can get it from touching it, or touching something that has touched it, like your clothes or your dog. You normally get it from touching the leaves. Be sure it’s not in the way of your weed whacker. Using a weed whacker to remove poison ivy will result in spraying your legs with poison ivy. If you are bare-legged and get scratches splattered with sap from poison ivy, you may be headed to the emergency room. If you think you have had a poison ivy encounter, it is best to react within the first several hours by rinsing with lots of cold water like a garden hose. Hot water will open your pores and let the oil in. Taking a shower could be a disaster by spreading the poison ivy all over the body. Washing with alcohol may still help remove the oil, but many say that after 1/2 hour the oil has already soaked in and cannot be removed. This has been a very unusual spring. Remember to watch out for ticks and poison ivy. Be sure to watch Pennsylvania Outdoor Life tonight at 6:30 p.m. on WNEP TV. We’ll take you to Schuylkill County for an update on the pheasant restoration project. Have a great day!

The Wyoming Area baseball is peaking at the right time. The Warriors won its sixth game in its last seven when he beat back Berwick, 9-4, on Monday in the Wyoming Valley Conference Division I-West finale in Columbia County. Dylan Maloney pounded out three hits and drove in three with a double and two singles as Wyoming Area (7-7) pounded out 14 hits, including six for extra-base hits. The Warriors broke open a 3-3 game with four runs in the top of the fifth to give senior Ron Klepadlo. Klepadlo pitched four innings, allowing just three hits and two earned runs. Maloney and Kody Nowicki came out of the pen to preserve the win for WA. Ryan Carey and PJ Bone each doubled and singled for the Warriors, and Klepadlo also added two hits and an RBI. Chris Murphy also stayed red hot with a 2-for-2 day at the plate that included a single and triple. Kyle Colarusso chipped in with a double for WA.

OF 7, Mid Valley 2

In his first outing against upstart Mid Valley, Old Forge starting pitcher Dave Chromey lasted just 2.2 innings as he struggled with his control. Almost one month later, the sophomore lefty threw a gem at the Spartans. Chromey fanned 14 batters and allowed just an infield single in the fifth inning as he pitched his second complete game of the season in leading the Blue Devils to a 9-3 victory in a Lackawanna League Division II game on Monday afternoon at Spartan Stadium in Throop. Old Forge (10-3) gave Chromey all the support he would need with two runs in the first

innings as Dave Argust and Dom Avvisato drew basesloaded walks to put the Blue Devils ahead, 2-0. A double steal in the second inning scored Chris Talipski who had singled to start the inning, and Old Forge added three more runs in the fourth as Michael Long and Connor Fultz drove in runs to take a commanding 6-0 lead before adding a seventh run in the fifth. Mid Valley scored two unearned runs off of Chromey in the bottom of the fifth. Mario Martinelli led the Blue Devils with four hits, and Long and Talipski both had two hits for Old Forge. Standings

Pittston Area Student Council holds Adopt a Highway cleanup Highway clean-up By: Jordan Gruttadauria

The Pittston Area Student Council held this year’s second Adopt a Highway cleanup on Saturday, April 30. The students arrived at 9am and cleaned the span of road in front of the high school, starting at the beginning of Stout Street and ending near the Oblates. The students were able to help the environment and make the community a better place, but also had the pleasure of discovering the weird items that people carelessly throw out their windows. “ We found many strange things”, said Pittston Area Junior Sarah Kosik.

Among the weird items were a bag of baby carrots and a hook to name a few. Even though this job seems undesirable to some, these students volunteered their time in order to make the community a nicer place to live. Pictured in first row, hunched over students: Liz McKitish, Amanda Tracy, Jamie Lee, Carly Bellas, and Danielle Dorosky. Second row: Julia Shandra, Jessica Oliveri, Shelby Smith, Kaylene Sutkowski, Emily Zielinski, and Jordan Gruttadauria. Third row: Matt Shamnoski, James LaMarca, Sarah Kosik, Brittany Czerniekowski, Emily Zurek, and John Lombardo.

Senior Sentiments

This past week, I headed back to New York City on a class trip to the Metropolitan Museum. While wandering around the labyrinth of exhibits, I discovered something just a bit beyond the spectacular paintings and sculptures set before my eyes. I stopped repeatedly at works of art that ‘spoke’ to me, or caught my attention in any sort of profound way. Many a time did I attempt to interpret the piece, only to find, upon reading its description, that my analysis did not reflect that of the artist. Often, it was nearly the opposite of what the artist was trying to convey. So I got to thinking. If I can not correctly read into the meaning of a colored canvas hanging motionless on a wall, how could I possibly be capable of understanding a human being upon first glance? When it comes to judging people, any assumptions made are usually not reliable unless they are based on some kind of facts. A

Giana Neishman, Zoe Scott, Zachary Chilson, and Aleksander Chilson. Second row: Michael Nagy, Adam Musto, Frank DiAielo, Nicholas Lombardo, John Ozark, Mason O’Donovan, Jacob Gregory, and Sam Turkos. Third row: Paige Washko, Emily good friend of mine recently offered me some advice on this very subject: “First figure it out, then judge it.” In our fastpaced world of instantaneous answers, this patience-based strategy might seem next to impossible. But it isn’t. In truth, investing a bit of time in getting to know people can save you a lot of time in the long run— days and weeks apologizing for misunderstandings and false interpretations, that is. Whether you learned this lesson through “don’t judge a book by its cover” or some other similar saying, how many of you have actually adhered to it? Certainly it is easier said than done, especially in high school, when many choose to define themselves by superficial char-

acteristics. The point is that it can be done. And as difficult as it might be, we should make every effort to refrain from judging people or situations before we really know them. In truth, there is a lot more to a painting than the way its colors are arranged on a canvas. And there is much more to a person than how the outside world perceives them. Keep this in mind the next time you meet someone new, be it at college, your workplace, or through a stranger you run into on the street. Invest enough time in people before making any decisions about them, and you might just get the same courtesy in return.

LEGAL NOTICE COMBINED NOTICE NOTICE TO PUBLIC OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS PUBLICATION DATE: May 22, 2011 GRANTEE NAME:

City of Pittston

ADDRESS:

City Hall 35 Broad Street Pittston, PA 18640

TELEPHONE:

570-654-4601

This notice shall satisfy the above-cited two separate but related procedural notification requirements. REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about June 7, 2011, the City of Pittston will request that the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) release Small Communities Program funds for the projects listed below. Assessed Activities Library Park (multi-year) A vacant parcel to the rear of the Pittston Library will be used to create a new public park, constructed in phases. Phase I will be the construction of a community-built playground. Materials and site preparation will be supported by $40,000 in FY 2010 CDBG funds. Future improvements will include an amphitheater. Categorically Excluded Activities Riverfront Park Streetscape Improvements FY 2010 CDBG funds in the amount of $107,180 will be used for streetscape enhancement along Kennedy Boulevard in the vicinity of the Riverfront Park. This project complements PennDOT’s $250,000 Transportation Enhancement Project in and around the park. Sidewalks will be replaced, collapsed storm inlets will be replaced and street furniture and lighting will be improved. Fencing will be placed along Kennedy Boulevard to separate public and private spaces. The carillon will be upgraded. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT The City of Pittston has been determined that the projects will have no significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the above listed address and is available for public examination and copying, upon request, Monday through Friday during normal working hours. PUBLIC COMMENTS ON FINDING Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this decision may submit written comments to Gerard Mullarkey, City Hall, 35 Broad Street, Pittston, PA 18640. All written comments received by June 6, 2011, will be considered by the City of Pittston prior to authorizing submittal of a request for release of funds. RELEASE OF FUNDS The City of Pittston certifies to DCED that Mr. Jason C. Klush, in his capacity as Mayor, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process, and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. DCED's acceptance of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and allows the City of Pittston to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS DCED will accept any objections to its release of funds and the City’s certification received by June 27, 2011, or for a period of fifteen days following its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if it is on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the chief executive officer or other officer of the applicant approved by DCED; (b) the ERR indicates omission of a required step/decision; (c) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality; or (d) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred funds not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of release of funds by DCED. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58), shall be addressed to the Department of Community and Economic Development, Office of Community Development and Housing, 400 North Street, Commonwealth Keystone Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120. Potential objectors should contact DCED to verify the actual last day of the objection period. Jason C. Klush, Mayor City Hall 35 Broad Street Pittston, PA 18640
