Ed Ackerman, optimist

TJ is still TJ Mary Ellen and Jerry Hromisin soon realized their greatest fear – that their son would die – would not be their only fear. Almost as terrifying was the fear that should he live, he would never again be their son … not at all as they knew him and possibly not even close. Doctors made it painfully clear that patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), if they survive, are often not the same person. Worse, they can become mean-spirited, foul-mouthed and belligerent. It’s a direct result of the part of the brain that is damaged or missing. It’s certainly not their fault, but it is a horrible experience for their loved ones. “This is what made Patrick (TJ’s older brother) break down and cry,” said Mary Ellen Hromisin Wednesday afternoon as she, her husband, and, yes, TJ talked candidly about TJ’s ordeal, now four years old, with some members of the Sunday Dispatch staff in the kitchen of their Pittston home.

As it turns out, Patrick never had to deal with it. None of the Hromisins have. It’s been a long road and hard work, but four years after a sniper’s bullet in Iraq tore out a third of his skull and a portion of his brain and left him blind for the remainder of his life, TJ is still TJ. What struck me most as we said our good-byes after more than two hours was how much everyone in that kitchen laughed during our visit, none of us more than TJ. He showed that he could take it, allowing his mom and dad to tease him about the size of his head which had brain surgeons astonished when they unwrapped an artificial skull made specifically for him, saying they had never before seen one so large; and that he could dish it out, referring to his dad pushing him to exercise his brain with the comment, “It’s tough having a teacher for a parent.” For the first 24 years of his life, TJ, written without periods and short for Thomas Jerome,

was about as perfect as a son could be: honor student, athlete, good Catholic faith, college ROTC grad, Army officer. Then, two years to the day of his college graduation, he took a bullet to the head and that changed everything. But, when all is said and done, it hasn’t changed him. Once a cross country standout, he can no longer run, but he walks with his dad almost every day. Once an honor student, he can no longer read, but he consumes audio books. And on it goes. Perhaps most striking is TJ’s faith in God – “it’s strengthened,” he says. “Yes, there was a time when all I said was ‘Why, God?’ now I just thank Him for keeping me alive.” Along with God, TJ thanks his parents. “They’ve done more than anyone could ask for without ever being asked,” he said. “They always knew what to do and when to do it, and they are still that way. Their service, their sacrifices, all the

good things. I really feel loved.” Unfortunately, not all who return from battle with traumatic brain injuries – and there are some 320,000 of them from Iraq and Afghanistan – return to parents such as Mary Ellen and Jerry Hromisin. Some have no homes at all. That prompted Kristin Perilli, an occupational therapist of the U.S. Navy, and her husband, William Perilli, a CPA, to create a fund to provide a home for troops with TBI who need permanent living arrangements following rehabilitation. Kristin, who was friends with TJ when both were students at the University of Scranton, was reunited with him when he became her patient at the US Navy Hospital in Bethesda. Kristin named the project the Thomas Jerome House. Ground for the first one will be broken shortly at Hamilton Square, New Jersey, and TJ will be there for the ceremony. Funds for the project are desperately needed. A cam-

paign in TJ’s name called “One Million/One Dollar” has been launched hoping to get one million people to donate one dollar each. All the details can be found at thomasjeromehouse.org or at onemilliononedollar.com. I’m praying for an overwhelming response from the people of Greater Pittston. Men like TJ are heroes, who essentially sacrificed the life they knew for America. That’s from the thomasjeromehouse.org website. The most difficult thing after my brain injury was going from the person who helped everyone with whatever they needed, to the person that needs help with almost everything in life. I want to have the opportunity to participate in the community the way I did before my injury. I support the Thomas Jerome House and its efforts to bring normalcy and purpose to every Marine, Sailor, Airman and Soldier that passes through its doors. That’s from TJ.

Friendly Sons of St. Patrick’s Man of the Year. TJ, his father Jerry Hromisin said Wednesday, never understood what the fuss over him was all about and he was happy to keep a low profile these past two years. This week with the 4th of July and its link to independence as a motivator, TJ agreed to an interview. Sitting at the kitchen table at his parents’ home in Pittston on

TJ Hromisin as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army in Iraq. An ROTC graduate of the University of Scranton, he was in Iraq only seven weeks when a rifle shot to the head left him critically wounded. The ambush occurred exactly two years after his college graduation.

Wednesday afternoon, he – along with his father and his mother Mary Ellen – talked about his recovery. It has been to use his father’s word “amazing.” In the immediate aftermath of his injury doctors held out little

hope that TJ would ever be able to do the things he does today. “I’m able to move around freely without help,” he said. “I think clearer. I put dates and times in their proper situations.” See TJ, Page 16

our years ago on May 29, 2007, retired United States Army Captain Thomas Jerome “TJ” Hromisin, then a 1st Lieutenant, was critically wounded by a sniper bullet during Operation Iraqi Freedom while leading a combat patrol. A third of his skull and part of his brain were destroyed and he was blinded.

Later that summer Tee It Up for TJ, a golf benefit at Edgewood in the Pines Golf Course in Drums, was organized by his cousin Ron Hromisin. That Thanksgiving more that 600 friends and family wore purple ribbons to honor Hromisin at a Mass at St. John the Evangelist Church. In 2008, Hromisin was the honorary starter of the Pittston Tomato Festival 5-k race. In 2009 he was the Greater Pittston

Fireworks tonight

Officials of Pittston City and West Pittston Borough invite everyone to the annual Fireworks over the Susquehanna River tonight at dusk. The Firefighters Memorial Bridge (Water Street Bridge) will be closed to vehicular traffic to provide an ideal viewing place. Other viewing locations are along the East and West sides of the river in Pittston and West Pittston and also from the sidewalk of the fort Jenkins Bridge. Mayor Jason Klush, Pittston, Mayor Tony Denisco, West Pittston, and former West Pittston mayor Bill Goldsworthy again called for donations to defray the cost of the display. The fireworks are funded through the PittstonWest Pittston Community fund. “We truly feel this fireworks display will help continue the harmonious relationship between the people, businesses and

government officials of both communities. 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,” the mayors wrote in a letter to area businesses and individuals seeking funds. Donations can be sent to the Pittston-West Pittston Community Fund c/o Pittston City Clerk’s Office, Pittston City Hall, 35 Broad Street, Pittston, Pa. 18640.

Annual ‘Fireworks over the Susquehanna’ sponsored by Pittston, West Pittston

Now that the approach spans on the Wyoming side of the old Eighth Street Bridge are gone, the obvious question is how will the looming steel truss spans of the old bridge be taken down? While it seems logical that because the truss spans are so close to the new bridge that blasting them down would not be an option, blasting is in fact the plan. But by law the truss spans can’t be dropped into the river, so the next phase of the project was to reposition the causeway. The causeway is the raised dirt and stone road that was built on the river for the construction of the new bridge. The causeway has been repositioned under the old trusses, but as of Saturday it was still under water. Bill Bohn, a consulting engineer on the job, said the plan is to raise the causeway above the river with stone on Tuesday and blast on Wednesday. While Wednesday is a target date, it is tentative depending on the weather and the river level. An offical annoucnment from PennDot will likely come Tuesday. The blasting Wednesday, if it happens, will bring down the trusses, not the piers. The piers, which are two feet into the river

“When I got home Thursday, the keys were in my mailbox,” said Marcella Starr, the president of the Wyoming Monument Association. The keys were for the doors to the monument and the fact that they were in her mailbox meant Masonry Preservation Services of Berwick had finished repairs and restoration of the monument in time for its rededication tomorrow during the 133rd Annual Observance of the Battle and Massacre at Wyom-

aving been selected to the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team in May, Stephanie Jallen, 15, is in Mt. Hood, Oregon, training with the team. But she is coming home this week for the Fifth Annual Stephanie Jallen Paralympic Motorcycle Run/ Picnic next Sunday. Stephanie, a Wyoming Area honor student from Harding, has been skiing since she was nine. As a member of the U.S. Ski Team, Jallen advances to the next level in training and competitions. Her goal has always been to qualify for the 2014 Paralympics in Russia. Making the U.S. team is a big step toward that goal, but she still has work to do. She can now train with the U. S. team and compete in events such as the World Cup, European Cup and Nor-Am Cup (North America.) Through these competitions the skiers earn points to qualify for the Paralympics. Stephanie

competes in Alpine ski racing in the slalom, giant slalom, downhill and super-G (super giant slalom.) After the motorcycle ride, Stephanie will go back to Mt. Hood. In August she goes to New Zealand for more training. Stephanie has CHILD (Congenital Hemidysplasia with Ichthyosiformerythroderma and Limb Defects) Syndrome, a con-

Peter will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s Official Yearbook, which is published nationally. The Academy recognizes students upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors, and other qualified sponsors and upon the Standards for Selection set forth by the Academy. The Standards for Selection include academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability, and recommendation from a qualified sponsor.

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that medical residents training in hospitals should be considered employees when it comes to collecting Social Security taxes. *** A new California law regulates the sale of handgun ammunition. Such ammunition for handguns can no longer be sold online. The ammunition must be stored behind the counter. Gun shops have to keep track of all sales. Customers will have to present their I.D.’s and be thumbprinted. *** The Colorado Supreme Court has denied a patient petition that asked the court to overturn large parts of the medical marijuana reform laws - HB 1284 and SB 109 - passed last year. The plaintiffs argued that the bills “restrict patient access to medicine and violate patient privacy rights guaranteed by the Colorado Constitution.” *** A new Texas law allows evidence of repeated domestic violence to lead to harsher sentences. *** The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has upheld a landmark decision that invalidated two mortgage foreclosures because the foreclosing lenders were not able to produce sufficient proof of mortgage ownership.

OUR OPINION Independence

Tomorrow is Independence Day with an upper case “I” and “D.” It’s a patriotic day on which we celebrate our country’s independence from Great Britain. But tomorrow is a good day to reflect on the many examples of lower case independence which affect our lives. The process of growing from a child to an adult is a series of gains of independence. A toddler learning to walk and talk is gaining independence. A child learning to ride a bike and an older child learning to drive are gaining even greater independence. When a young adults turns18 a world of independence is thrust upon him or her. At 18 young adults can legally do, independent of their parents, lots of things that they couldn’t do the day before. At 18 they can, on their own, vote, apply for a credit card, get married, join the military, start a business, get a mortgage or auto loan, enter into contracts, etc. At 21 they can drink alcohol without breaking the law, a form of independence frought with many possible negative ramifications for themselves and society if they celebrate that independence too freely. Independence can also be lost and then found again. Marriage restricts independence, divorce may restore it. Becoming a parent restricts independence, raising that child to adulthood may restore it. Drug abuse takes away independence. Getting clean can restore it. A person on welfare wins independence by finding a job. An illiterate adult can become independent by learning to read. There are different types of independence. Being handy is a form of independence. Being happy, that is not expecting someone else to make one happy, is a form of independence. Sometimes giving up independence can be a good thing. We give up some independence when we join a team, when we play in a band or sing in chorus. We give up some independence when we adopt a pet and when we fall in love. Independence can be different things to different people. For the sick or injured independence comes from healing. For a good example turn to pages two and three and learn what independence means to TJ Hromisin. Like him, cherish the independence you have and strive for the independence you want. Remember not everyone can be independent. Let’s use our independence to help those who, through no fault of their own, are dependent on others. Jack Smiles

YOUR OPINION

Left out of kindergarten, but turned out just fine Jack Smiles’ “Random Notes,” about all-day kindergarten on June 26 made me chuckle. My Mom, Lottie Innamorati, was basically a no nonsense, take no prisoners, type of Mom. She had no patience with anyone who didn’t understand her agenda. Times were tough right after the depression, Mom didn’t drive and she had a tousled hair little two-year-old son, besides me, her five-year-old daughter. Mommy decided she wanted me enrolled in kindergarten. It wasn’t like she could look on the internet for the schedule and we didn’t even have a telephone. When we got to the school, she was told that the enrollment was filled. Now, this was pretty much back in the days of “Little House on the Prairie”. Mom didn’t like the school’s response so she did what wouldn’t be tolerated today; she fibbed and enrolled me in the first grade of the local Catholic School. Instead of being five

years old, I was now six. Wasn’t much checking back then. Well, lo and behold, I thrived. Of course, five year olds had a heavy dose of reading, by then, back in the good old days; being there was no TV. There was no “Dancing with the Stars” or reality shows to miss, so my parents, poor as they were, always had time to read me a story before bed-time. Plus I became the only Italian kid in my family to speak the Slovakian language! When I graduated from high school, I had just passed from my 16th to my 17th year, which helps to explain why I got married so young. Oh well, there’s a down side to everything, isn’t there?

Skate away

upcoming 30-year high school reunion and invitations to become a member of both the NRA and AARP. That’s it, I decided, these skates were going to save my life, my figure and the scant slice of what’s left of my addled brain. I yanked open that box and there they were … pristine, white, hopeful and a potential hoot. The purple wheels were a tad Barney-esque, but what the hell…they turned. Because I didn’t want to delay my newfound enthusiasm for all things get-up-and-go one moment further, l laced them up, hobbled to a precarious vertical position, and feeling like Olivia Newton John in Xanadu, skated smoothly through my house. All three kids were on the couch and stared. They did not blink. They did not breathe. They stared. Then, of course, they began the expected response of snorting, chortling and pointing. Me: “I don’t care what you all say. I love these!” Nick: “Ohhh. Well. They sure are… um…fancy. Do they say…” he squinted, “…Roller Derby Star on the side, Mom? ROLLER DERBY STAR???” Me: “This is outstanding exercise! Don’t judge me! But maybe long pants instead of my baggy shorts would make me look a little less silly…” Madeline: “You’re an old lady on white roller skates with purple wheels! Nothing is going to make you look less silly!” Undeterred, I practiced up and down the street. With each swipe down the blacktop I felt lighter and more exuberant. My husband drove by and helpfully pointed out that 1985 called and they wanted their skates back. I told him he could take them back with him when he returned his acidwashed Wrangler jeans and powder blue Members Only jacket. Two can play this game, dammit. I skate every night and I love it. I realize I’m straddling a world between delight and ridiculous, yet I skate and I skate and I don’t worry about looking like an ass. If I worried about looking like an ass, I would have never played Twister, or had a mullet or repeatedly and without provocation stuck a spoon to my nose or worn a bikini. You can’t not do something that makes your heart sing just because people nudge and point and giggle. And believe me, they do. I think they’re jealous, actually. I think they want to also have a brand new pair of roller skates. Because, I have a brand new pair of roller skates and I also hold the proverbial brand new key. The key to fun and toned glutes and revisited adolescence. I hold the key to glee. Who knew all it would take was a pair of Roller Derby Stars? Maria Heck skates into the hearts of Sunday Dispatch readers every other week in this space.

Barbecue with safety There are numerous ways to cook burgers, chicken and ribs on the grill. Many of us have our grilling secrets when grilling outdoors. USDA has some too, that is very specific recommendations for cooking meats to ensure that you and your guests are safe from food borne illness. One fact sheet written by USDA, entitled “Barbeque and Food Safety” identifies the ten top mistakes made by those who grill foods outdoors. Here are three of those frequently made mistakes.” First, when reheating fully cooked meats like hot dogs, grill to 165°F or until steaming hot. It is not recommended to just warm the hot dogs, but rather use a food thermometer to ensure that they reach 165°F. Second after cooking meat and poultry on the grill, keep it hot until served — at 140 °F or warmer. It is not recommended to just place grilled food on the serving table and leave food out for longer than two hours. Remember, in hot weather (above 90 °F), food should never sit out for more than 1 hour. Keep cooked meats hot by setting them to the side of the grill rack, not directly over the coals where they could overcook. At home, the cooked meat can be kept hot in an oven set at approximately 200 °F, in a chafing dish or slow cooker, or on a warming tray. Third frequently made mistake, when taking food off the grill, use a clean platter. Don’t put cooked food on the same platter that held raw meat or poultry. Any harmful bacteria present in the raw meat juices could contaminate safely cooked food. Using a cooking thermometer is a must when ever cooking meats. In a previous nutrition corner column, “To Wash or Not to Wash”, I mistakenly quoted that the final cooking temperature for ground beef was 155°F, however more correctly stated the final cooking temperature for restaurants or retailers as noted in the FDA food code is 155°F with a rest time of 15 seconds, but not for home cooking or consumers. The correct temperature for cooking ground meat products at home as recommended by USDA is 160°F, five degrees higher and no rest time. Rest time is the amount of time that the finished cooked product rests before eating. During rest periods, internal temperatures of meat can either stay the same or increase. Along with ground beef, all grounds meats, pork, turkey and beef need to be cook to an internal temperature of 160°F for consumers. The new final cooking temperature that was just released by USDA for whole cuts of pork is 145°F and with an added a three-minute rest time. The safe temperature for cuts of beef, veal, and lamb remains unchanged at 145 °F, but the department is adding a three-minute rest time as part of its cooking recommendations. Cooking raw pork, steaks, roasts, and chops to 145 °F with the addition of a three-minute rest time will result in a product that is both microbiologically safe and at its best quality. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has determined that it is just as safe to cook cuts of pork to 145 °F with a three minute rest time as it is to cook them to 160 °F, the previously recommended temperature, with no rest time. Every kitchen needs a calibrated cooking thermometer. As you can see, if FDA and USDA are making recommendations within specific degrees, then using your eye as a determinant of doneness is not safe. Be safe, use a calibrated chef’s thermometer. In addition, visit foodsafety.gov to check out some of the neat new youtube videos.

“I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates…you’ve got a brand new key…” If you’re old enough to remember that song, you’re old enough to remember the skates. Hold that thought. I’m 48 years old. And, a 48 year-old woman apparently has to stay active in order to avoid looking like a Russian nesting doll. It’s a sad fact. I can no longer eat an entire pallet of sticky buns and not expect it to relocate to my bulbous belly, which resembles a plum left in the cold recesses of the refrigerator too long. My metabolism is as slow as molasses in January and my estrogen supply follows lazily behind. So, I’ve valiantly tried to get my slug-like self up and rotating. Walking is okay, but it’s not very titillating. Unless I catch something enthralling through someone’s window. (Oh, and I have). I’ve tried walk/jogging, “wogging”, but I fell down, and that was that. I bike ride and I do enjoy it…even with my husband yelling after me: “You GO, Wicked Witch of the West! Where’s Toto? WHERE’S TOTO?” I throw him a gesture that is so very familiar to him and off I peddle. But still, I required more. I needed to get into better shape before my next call was to 1-800-pajama-jeans. I thought back to a time when excessive motion was actually fun and I remembered the one activity that I’ve always loved: roller skating! When we were kids, during medieval times, remember we all skated with those archaic metal apparatuses that clung onto our shoes and could only be tailored using a special skate key? We had to wear the key on a shoelace around our neck, because: one, it was cool, and two, once you lost your key, you were effectively screwed. There was no other way to manipulate those skates, I will tell you that. I know because my sister always stole my key and I was …well, effectively screwed. When my husband and I lived in California, BC (Before Children), he would spend countless empty hours golfing (surprise) and I would spend those same hours roller skating around the golf course. I had graduated to cool, white, lace-up skates then and I tell you, I flew. Flew! Now, this was the ‘80s so suffice it to say those skates were paired with enormous shoulder pads, legwarmers and enough blue mascara to sink a Carnival cruise ship. But honestly, I was never in better shape; although that was partially because three children hadn���t yet laid claim to my worn-out uterus and other instrumental parts, leaving my belly in the crepe-paper shape it’s currently enjoying…but still… So, instead of traveling to a Planet called Fitness, I ordered a pair of roller skates. They weren’t like the skates from my Flashdance days, but pretty damn close. Finally, they arrived at my door…along with mail including an announcement of my

MOTHER’S DAZE


SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, JULY 3, 2011 Mary Ellen, TJ, and Jerry Hromisin share a laugh at their home in Pittston on Wednesday as they discussed TJ's long road back after a critical head wound incurred in Iraq in 2007. PHOTO BY BILL TARUTIS

TJ

Continued from Page 3

He recalls when he couldn’t say a sentence like that one. “I was always able to talk making words,” he said, “but not making any sense with them.” Today TJ, although he speaks deliberately, makes a lot of sense and is independent enough to make his own breakfast and wash a load of clothes. He goes to cognitive therapy sessions with Dr. Kristin Bewick where he is encouraged to write. “I’m putting together essays, mainly about people from my past, to combine thinking skills and writing skills and have the ability to write a decent essay on any kind of subject,” he said.

Mary Ellen Hromisin talks about her son TJ's day-to-day progress.

He also gets mobility training from Susan Friedman who takes him around the University of Scranton campus where he

spent four years as an ROTC scholarship student and where he hopes to enroll in classes. His more immediate goal, he said, is to “get around that campus with as little help as possible.” To help his mobility he walks several miles a day with his father, uses a treadmill and does a little weight training. He said he always liked to run and had been a member if the cross country team at Seton Catholic High School. Eventually TJ, who was promoted to Captain in the U.S. Army but is now officially retired from that position, would like to work. “I’d like to get a job I want to do,” he said, “instead of settling for a job.” Even at that, TJ and his parents don’t dwell on the future. “To use a cliché, one day at a time,” Jerry said. “Everybody says it, but we do it. We get through today and get up tomorrow and see what’s next.”

One of the ways they get through today is with humor. TJ is fair game for jokes about the size of his head – it’s big, as xrays of his skull provided by his orthodontist to the surgeons who repaired his skull revealed. His mother said when the surgeons saw the size of the plastic polymer skull that was specially built to replace TJ’s destroyed skull, it was so big they thought a mistake had been made. Another way the Hromisins do “one day at a time” is to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. TJ likes to eat, “watch” TV, listen to baseball games on the radio, listen to audio books and to music on his iPod which he said “has everything from rock, to rap to country.” It all sounds normal and that, T.J said, is what keeps him motivated. “I want a chance at normalcy,” he said.


Question #1 There was a moblike atmosphere on North Main Street in Pittston on July 2, 1947. What was going on?

Peeking into the past With Judy Minsavage

1947 – 64 Years Ago Upon the 50th reunion of the Twin Shaft Disaster of June 28, 1896, a July, 1947, issue of the Sunday Dispatch contained the names of miners killed in the accident that shook the town like an earthquake. Fifty-eight men and boys were killed when the roof of the tunnel gave way trapping the miners. Rescue attempts were futile, therefore the miners are still entombed on the site. A marker signifies the event and location. To read all the names and the account of the mine accident go to www.gendisasters.com/data1/pa/mines/pittston-minecavein1896.htm. Professor Peter Pace of the Oregon section of Pittston set about arranging the revival of the Greater Pittston Concert Band in order to present public performances. Mr. Pace hoped to find past members and gain new. The American Federation of Musicians supported free public concerts and the Holy Name Society of St. Rocco’s Church hoped to sponsor some events. The Yearling, staring Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman, was screened at the American Theatre. The Farmer’s Daughter, with Loretta Young and Joseph Cotton, was showing at the Liberty in Exeter and Palace in Avoca.

1977 – 34 Years Ago Not to be outdone, Greater Pittston held their first Fine Arts Festival. Many musical groups were scheduled to perform with local artists Marie Mastruzzo, Michael Perry, Mary Coleman and Juanita Miller, Josette Borzik, Rich Suchocki, Debbie Lynn, Linda Busch

and Marion Marrow displayed their original works. Steven LaTorre of Harding displayed his Winchester rifle and antique clock collection, Tom Civiletti and Jim Rauh demonstrated wood carving, Denise Faleski offered to silk screen t-shirts. Don Cassetori and Pat Sciandra provided tennis mini-lessons. Question #2 Greater Pittston laid claim to having two of the rarest of these in the world. What were they? 1997 – 14 Years Ago The following memorial books were donated to the West Pittston Library in 1997: In memory of Sidney Bugelholl, Chronicles of the Great War, The Western Front 1914-1918 presented by John and Beverly Williams. In memory of Carlo J. Saporito: Stephen Spielberg: a Biography, presented by Attorney and Mrs. Michael J. Cefalo. In honor of John Markarian: John Muir; Nature Writings, presented by Helen B. Platten and Minnie B. MacLellan. Answer #1 Nathan’s, a dress shop on North Main Street, held a large clearance sale with the “best prices in town.” Noticing the huge response to the sale, other businesses joined in by quickly posting sale notices in their windows. Police were dispatched to the area as some women stormed the shops causing injury. Answer #2 Mrs. and Mrs. Ed Rees of Exeter and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Cefalo along with their children Michele and Mark of West Wyoming each owned a rare breed of dog. The Rees’s Egyptian Pharaoh Hounds, capable of running at speeds of 52 miles per hour are excellent hunters and were once thought to be extinct. The Cefalo’s Chinese Shar-Pei was listed in the 1976 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as “one of the rarest dogs in the world,” with a history dating back as early as 206 B.C. Read more and see photos of these two extraordinary breeds of dog at westminsterkennelclub.org. We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls. Robert J. McCracken Let’s celebrate our precious freedom this 4th of July!

1957 – 54 Years Ago Exeter resident Vince Yanovitch was the golf pro for Whiteface Inn Golf Club at Lake Placid. Named a rising star in the sport, Yanovitch had formerly been at Shawnee Country Club owned by Fred Waring, a renowned choral director and bandleader in the 1940s and ‘50s. Waring broadcasted his famous radio show from that location hosting many of the top celebrities of the time. After taking the job as pro at Whiteface, Yanovitch tied the course record. He has been a member of PGA Professionals for over 50 years and is the PGA Director of Golf at Great Bear Golf and Country Club in East Stroudsburg. You can also get his golf tips online. It was a big game but all in fun when Detato’s Market challenged the Umpires Association to a softball exhibition. The umps took some good-natured ribbing, and fans were treated to an entertaining game. Members of the

teams were Nick Daley, Val Daley, Bob Linskey, Tony Rincavage, Billy Brill, Jim O’Malley, Joe Cadden, Jack Hoover, Al Amer, Larry Delaney, Dan Forlenza, Tony DeGerolomo, Eddie Leyshon, Joe DeLucca, Paul Pascoe, Jack Thomas, Len Wendoloski, Tony Rossi, Gene Allegrucci and Bob Detato. Detato’s won. Billy Dructor, of Pittston and a local American Legion boxing champion, joined the Air Force and was stationed at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington D.C. but he did not forget his competitive nature. While at the base, he was selected to coach Air Force track and field team taking the Northeast championship. Dructor participated in the event taking second in the 440-yard hurdles, and was on the winning 440yard relay team. He was selected to coach the Air Force World Wide Track and Field Tournament held in Texas. Paddy Fadgen was known as “king of the woods” and lived in the “last house on the right in Paddy’s land just at the foot of mile hill,” according to a Sunday Dispatch reader. The writer further commented that “Paddy would turn over in his grave” if he knew what was happening at Langan’s Settlement in Pittston Township. A police raid uncovered that “upstart teenagers” were using the patch of land once owned by the Irishman for late night beer parties. The writer appealed to local politicians for help in returning the patch of land to a peaceful area. In the Subscriber’s Corner of the Dispatch a young person commenting on the police raid stating, “If there was a party near Langan’s would there be a corpse house out there? It’s so far out in the woods you need a guide to get there and a horse to get back. We’re not bothering anybody. What do you want us to do, drop dead?” Marion Salvo of Pittston, Miss Wyoming Valley of 1957, was to make a guest appearance at a record hop at Holy Rosary Church in Duryea. Marion competed with 22 other contestants in the Miss Pennsylvania Pageant at Longwood Gardens, West Chester, and placed sixth.

1967 – 44 Years Ago Miner’s Savings Bank on South Main and Broad Streets in Pittston celebrated its 98th year. With combined total assets of over $19 million, the bank had five offices in Pittston and Duryea. The bank opened In January of 1869, and in December of 1986 was taken over by First Eastern Bank. Mrs. Coray H. Miller of Wyoming and President of the Wyoming Monument Association gave a detailed history of the monument on the 189th anniversary of the battle of Wyoming. “The battle occurred on July 3, 1778 but the bodies of dead were laid to rest in a field owned by John McDowell some months later. Phillip Jackson located the grave in 1832 shortly afterward a group of citizens met to plan a monument. In the spring of 1833, the bones of 83 solders were disinterred and placed in three large boxes kept in the Swetland Store located nearby. The corner stone of the monument was laid on July 3, 1883. The first officers of association were Mrs. Chester Butler, Mrs. G.M. Hollenback and Mrs. E. Carey.” To find out more about one of the “unknown” officers in the battle read “A Forgotten Hero” of the Massacre at Wyoming, Major John Garret, written by Rev. Horace Edwin Hayden. Excerpts from the book located at the Library of Congress can be found at http://www.archive.org/stream/majorjohngarrett00hayd#page/n3/mode/2up. Four young men out for a day of summer adventure wound up being rescued by approximately 50 volunteer firefighters and rescue workers. The youths attempted to climb area landmark Campbell’s Ledge only to find three quarters of the way and 200 feet above the base, they became stranded. Rescue teams from Germania and Excelsior Hose Companies joined forces to bring the boys to safety. Earlier in the day, Walter Bechtold of Coxton observed the youngster’s plight and notified Patrolman James Steer. Steer notified the firefighters. Two brothers of Excelsior, Dave and Charles Wickizer, climbed the cliff and lowered three of the boys to the ground, the fourth made his way down without aid.

MARIA REMEMBERS Maria Capolarella Montante

Happy birthday, America Red, white and blue flags and buntings are flying proudly throughout our area and towns across America in honor of the forthcoming “Independence Day” marking this nation’s 235th birthday. The flags when caught by the wind unfurl majestically affirming the feelings of pride and honor we have in our great country. We are reminded of the sacrifices made from the birth of this nation to the present. Celebrating and marking this historical “Independence Day” is a tradition dating back to 1776 when the Second Continental Congress presented a second draft of the list of grievances known as the Declaration of Independence to King George of England. Bravely the signatures of 56 men were penned on the document. They pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. Twenty four were lawyers and jurists, eleven were merchants; nine were farmers and plantation owners; others were men of means and well educated. As each man signed his name it was with the realization of the danger of being called treasonous against Mother Country England and the crown. With courage, conviction and determination they signed to establish a country free from English domination with full knowledge they may be executed. John Hancock, president of the Congress, was the first to sign the document. He signed most flamboyantly. His signature was easily recognized and unfounded comments of his ac-

tions are: “The British Ministry can read that name without spectacles let them double their reward.” Among the signers were: Edward Rutledge at age 24 the youngest; Benjamin Franklin at age 70 the oldest; John Adams and Thomas Jefferson two future Presidents of the United States; nine members of the Congress representing Pennsylvania: George Clymer, Merchant and Banker; Robert Morris, Merchant, established Bank of the United States;; Benjamin Rush, Physician and Educator; James Smith, Lawyer; George Taylor, Production and Iron Master; Benjamin Franklin, Printer and Publisher; John Morton, Judge; George Ross, Lawyer and Judge; and James Wilson, Lawyer. The fate of some of the 56 men who signed the original Declaration: five were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before their death. The homes of twelve were confiscated and burned. Two lost their sons while serving in the Revolutionary Army and another had two sons captured. Nine died of hardships of the war; eight signers had their homes vandalized and looted; one’s wife was jailed where she died; three were forced from their homes and their families vanished. One sold his home and property to pay his debts and died in rags; another died bankrupt and three died of exhaustion and broken hearts. Through the 235 years of America’s history there has been much blood shed and sacrifices made by sons and daughters on

Food as always played a major role in the day. Many times the food was prepared at home especially the pasta al forno with perpatti (meatballs). The large fireplaces in the park were fired up and chickens brushed with olive oil, lemons, garlic and rosemary were roasted on the grill. By one o’clock the aroma of those chickens filled your nostrils, piqued your appetite and were attacked with great gusto. Food tasted so much better in the outdoors. The wonderful part of those get together was that everyone sat to eat dinner together. There was much gaiety and laughter between the grownups and the children. I can’t recall any quarreling or bickering. It was just a fun day for everyone. I must note that once in the park all the cooking and cleanup was done by our fathers. It was a special treat for our mothers. Our evening fare was half and

half. Half Italian and half American. Hamburgers that were prepared with a meatball recipe and shaped into round patties were served on Ristagno’s Bakery rolls as well as the hotdogs. There was no potato salad or coleslaw since they were prepared with mayonnaise which was not a popular condiment. Today firework displays are so much grander than in the simple days of the ohs and ahs. Watching fireworks explode in air with vibrant colors of red, blue green, gold, silver and white cascading gracefully is spectacular. One stands in awe as sparkling splashes of colors fall from the sky. They take your breath away. However, you are celebrating “Independence Day” remember its meaning. Remember to be grateful and ask God to continue to bless this great land. You might want to sing “Happy Birthday” to America.

the homeland and in foreign lands. Freedom is not to be taken for granted or without thought. It came and come with a high price of human life. We have inherited the custom of picnics, parades and shooting fireworks on this momentous celebration from the colonist. After the Declaration was signed in 1776 and it was read to the public in various American cities thunderous cheers and applause was heard. Parades and militia events followed with fireworks following in the evening. Fourth of July brings back childhood memories recalled with sentimental pleasure. It was a holiday anticipated with eagerness for it was a day celebrated with the Comate’s, compati’s and their families who were considered our cousins. Although our parents were not American born they accepted and embraced the holidays and traditions of their new land.

This Week’s Dining Guide Feature: Our Specials

Harry Jackett’s Lunch is named in honor of my Father. He was born and raised in the “Junction” section of Pittston. He was an Army cook his entire life. All our food is homemade from scratch...just as he would have. After owning a restaurant inTennessee for many years, I returned back to his hometown in 2009 and re-opened the former Central Lunch in honor of him. If I can prepare meals half as well as he did, I will consider myself a success. Sheryl

the original construction, work for which Masonry Preservation Services is well qualified having won awards for work on the U.S. Penitentiary at Lewisburg, The Swetland, Fleck & Darte Hall at Wyoming Seminary, and the Osterhout Library. Last fall the company did containment work to minimize winter deterioration. Repair and restoration of the masonry obelisk started in the spring. The cap, which had been in two pieces, was waterproofed and the joints were sealed. The top two courses of blocks were removed, repointed and replaced and a lightning suppression system was installed. The cracked survivors plaque was replaced with a new one donated by the Wyoming Commemorative Association. Other repairs, not associated with the lightning were also made. There were some discoveries during the work. When the contractors removed the granite plaque they found the original marble plaque behind it. Though it is deteriorated it was preserved and will be on display tomorrow. When the contractors scraped the doors, which were painted black, they found they are made of bronze. They were varnished to preserve the bronze look. Starr, who will offer remarks tomorrow, said, “I’m so excited. It’s just beautiful. And I’m proud to say it has been preserved for another 75 to 100 years.” The keynote speaker for tomorrow’s commemoration ceremony is Dr. Kenneth Wolensky, a noted author and historian who grew up in Wyoming Valley.

The service celebrates the occasion of the 233rd anniversary of the Battle of Wyoming. Mayor Robert Boyer of Wyoming Borough is the ceremony chair and master of ceremonies. Monsignor Neil Van Loon of the Church of St. Maria Goretti in Laflin, will serve as chaplain. Drs. Joseph and Rose Mattioli will be guests of honor. The event will include introductions of descendents of battle participants and colonial re-enactors. The Wyoming Monument honors the more than 170 Connecticut settlers who were killed by Tories and Iroquois Indians on July 3, 1778, in the Battle of Wyoming. The remains of those killed were found in a mass grave in May of 1832 and reburied where the monument stands. The monument’s construction began in July of 1833 and was suspended due to a lack of funds when the monument reached 20 feet. Construction resumed in 1841 when the Ladies Luzerne Monumental Association, which became the Wyoming Monument Association in 1860, raised money to complete the monument at a cost of $8,000. On the 100th anniversary of the battle on July 3, 1878, a commemoration service drew more than 50,000 people to hear the main speaker for the event, U. S. President Rutherford B. Hayes. The service has been held on the battle anniversary every year since. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Monument in 1905.

Dispatch Intern

Twenty years ago, Ned Jones wanted to do something nice for his son, Dave. He was suffering from a heart condition and would have liked nothing more than a signed baseball from one of his favorite players. Little did Ned know that 20 years later he would have amassed one of the most prolific and impressive baseball collections one can put together. In order to set off on his mission to get a signed ball, Ned enlisted the help of his good friend Mike Carroll. Mike was going to spring training in Florida and Ned was going to tag along with some other friends, including Dan Llewellyn, Jim Allardyce, Bill Riccetti, Jim Jumper, and Tom Lacomis. Knowing they weren’t going to get much more than an upper deck ticket at one of the games, Carroll decided to try to help the cause. He went to Ed Ackerman, then managing editor of the Sunday Dispatch, who provided him with a press pass and send bring back some photos for the paper. Neither one was sure if it would work. There was one problem though: no baseball. A contract dispute had halted play. But, Ned was not going to give up on his son.

Next year they tried the same thing, only this time they had better results. They wound up meeting some of the most famed figures of baseball including: Yankees Don Mattingly, Paul O’Neil, Bernie Williams, and the boss himself, George Steinbrenner. They were also able to meet some great Phillies players, including John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra and general manager Bill Giles. They met the players, they ate with the players, they drank with the players, and they shared stories with them. Jim Jumper was excited about seeing a different person. During one of the games he was stunned to see Hall of Fame organist Wilbur Snapp. Snapp is famous for playing Three Blind Mice on his organ once the umpires blew a call. Eventually the umpire threw him out. He became the first and only organist to be thrown out of a baseball game. Bill Riccetti even added a bit of surprise to the trip when, to the disbelief of the rest of the group, he called current Red Baron Dave Cash, and asked him to show them around. Apparently, they were good friends and he was able to give them a tour of the field. Through all the excitement and the activities, Ned Jones was able to get enough memorabilia for his son. He returned home

with a big smile and a ton of stories. Ned continued to grow his collection of baseball memorabilia throughout the years. Twenty years later he has signed baseballs from players such as: Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Tom Seaver, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Mike Schmidt, Ted Williams, Yogi Berra, Tom Larson, Harmon Killebrew, Ernie Banks, Pete Rose, Reggie Jackson, Eddie Matthews, Cal Ripken Jr., and Frank Robinson. Dave Jones, Ned’s son, passed away the next year on March 15, 1992.

MEETINGS & BRIEFS

support the health of the women they know and the next generation of children by learning the facts about breastfeeding and communicating those facts to their peers. “Talk to me! Breastfeeding; a 3D Experience,” is the theme of the approaching World Breastfeeding Week to be celebrated worldwide from August 1 through 7, 2011. This theme encompasses the depth and texture of time-place-talk across the many facets of a new mother’s daily life. Parenthood creates a significant climate of change for a mother, her partner and their friends; however, choosing to breastfeed can in fact ease the transition to the responsibilities of child care while it enriches the bond with the newborn. Since breastfed babies are extremely portable, social outings are easy to achieve with the baby along. A dinner-date can still include an occasional alcoholic beverage for mom two or three hours prior to baby’s next feeding. Recent research by a noted cosmetic surgeon dispels the myth that breastfeeding is problematic for

a woman’s figure; on the contrary it is especially good for a woman’s breast health and for the daughters she breastfeeds. For more information on the importance of breastfeeding and how you can encourage a baby’s mother as she provides this optimal infant food contact The Luzerne County Breastfeeding Coalition 570-808-5534. The Coalition is comprised of representatives from Northeastern Pennsylvania whose mission is to establish breastfeeding as the cultural norm in our community by advocating the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding. We believe that establishing more resources for breastfeeding mothers will encourage breastfeeding practices and improve breastfeeding outcomes. Local hospitals, Lactation Consultants, Maternal and Family Health Services, Pennsylvania Department of Health, Early Head Start, Nurse Family Partnership, and La Leche League, sit on this Coalition and new members are welcome.

Allan title to be decided today Briggs-Crossin, Coleman-Mulhern to play 18-hole playoff

By Ryan Konopki

Times Leader staff

The first 18 holes in the final round of Sunday’s championship flight were not enough to determine a clear leader heading into the last nine holes. As it turns out, neither were the back nine or the three playoff holes. The foursome of Don Crossin, Bill Briggs, Joe Mulhern and Len Coleman remained tied at 14-under par in the 65th annual John A. Allan Tournament better-ball stroke play format at Fox Hill Country Club. An 18-hole playoff will be played today, starting at noon, to determine the winner. The third playoff hole was completed, with both Crossin-Briggs and Mulhern-Coleman making par on the 18th green. Neither team was able to convert on potential match-winning putts and the match was called due to darkness. Crossin and Briggs were in a similar situation in last year’s championship event, eventually losing to Brian Corbett and Bob Gill on the third playoff hole. Needing to make a 4-foot putt to win the tournament on the third playoff hole, Crossin’s ball lipped around the edge of the hole. "I wanted to make it badly," said Crossin, whose team made seven birdies in the final round. Crossin and Briggs were in a three-way tie heading into the last nine holes of regulation at10-under 203 with Mike Hirthler Jr. and Bill Burke, as well as 2010 PIAA state champion and Pittston Area senior Brandon Matthews and Rick Laneski. Hirthler Jr.-Burke finished 9-under par while Matthews-Laneski finished at 12-under. However, it was Mulhern and Coleman 7-under with nine to play - who stole the show as they captivated the gallery following them Sunday. Mulhern was the first to send the crowd in a frenzy with his first-career hole-in-one. His hybrid 3-iron shot off the 13th tee traveled 242 yards and landed about 10 feet to the right of the pin. It broke left, down the slope of the green and into the cup for the ace. "My father just passed away in December," said Mulhern. "It was odd not seeing See ALLAN, Page 49

Fahey chosen for Semper Harris to make Fidelis All-American Bowl pro debut at

‘Inauguration’

Dispatch Staff

Duryea’s Joe Fahey - one of Greater Pittston’s most well know varsity sports spectators - will soon get to watch one of his own perform at high school football’s highest level. Fahey’s grandson Scott has been selected to play in the inaugural Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in Phoenix, AZ on January 3, 2012. The Semper Fidelis Bowl, which will be held in conjunction with Fiesta Bowl Week, is part of a partnership between Marine Corps Recruiting Command and Junior Rank. The bowl game, which will be nationally televised by CBS, will be an East-West format game featuring the top 100 high school seniors that participated in Junior Rank camps throughout the year. Fahey, the son of Joseph and Monica Fahey of Chesapeake, VA, was selected after his performance at a Junior Rank Diamond Flight Camp in Virginia Beach, VA in May. A 5-foot-11, 275pound senior center at Hickory High School this coming fall, Fahey won the leadership award at the camp. According to recruit757.com, Junior Rank founder Shaon Berry had this to say about the player with Greater Pittston roots. “Scott Fahey was a guy who was picking up his

He just displayed exceptional leadership for us and he’s a kid that we thought very highly of.” The Diamond Flight Camp took place at the Virginia Beach Field House and Sportsplex, and was three days of football instruction and evaluation, and training by the USMC. Scott is also the grandson of Ann Fahey of Duryea, and Martha McShane of Virginia.

Grove double gives GP walk-off win Greater Pittston Legion team on pace to make WVAL playoffs

By Josh Horton

Dispatch Correspondent

On Friday night at the Atlas, the Greater Pittston American Legion baseball team knew it had to play its most important game of the season without two of their best hitters. What they didn’t know was, they wouldn’t need them. Trent Grove delivered in the clutch by smashing a 0-2 fastball over the head of the Swoyersville centerfielder to Greater Pittston a 5-4 victory in walk-off fashion in a Wyoming Valley American Legion game with playoff implications at the Atlas Sports Complex in West Pittston. “It felt great to come through and get a hit there,” Grove said with a huge smile. “I haven’t been hitting well lately and it felt great to get the win.” Despite ultimately losing the game, Swoyersville took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Nick Hogan led off the game with a line drive single to left field and put himself into scoring position by stealing second base. With one out in the inning, Joe Pechulis roped and RBI sin-

gle down the first base line. However, he was thrown out at second by Greater Pittston right fielder Sam Eramo after trying to stretch his single into a double. Swoyersville extended its

lead to 2-0 in the top of the second inning after Chris Sabol drew a walk with the bases loaded. Mike Leonard walked home for Swoyersville after reaching on an error. After leaving men on base in

each of the first three innings, the Greater Pittston offense exploded for a four-run fourth. The inning was highlighted by a three-run triple to right-centerfield off the bat of Nick O’Brien. Chris Murphy fol-

lowed and roped an RBI-single to centerfield to give Greater Pittston a 4-2 lead. “You just have to play the hand you’re dealt,” said Greater Pittston Manager Drew Whyte of his lineup being void of Ron Musto and Kody Nowicki. “The kids battled hard today and Nick came through with the huge hit to give us the lead.” Swoyersville cut the Greater Pittston lead to just 4-3 in the top half of the fifth inning as Pechulis scored on an RBI double down the left field line by Kyle Lewis. In the top of the seventh, Swoyersville knotted the game at 4-4. Matt Zielen scored from third on a ground out to first off the bat of Tyler McGovern. Greater Pittston first baseman Anthony Bellino made a fantastic full extension dive to his glove side to stop the hard hit grounder by McGovern. If Bellino had not made the play, Pechulis most likely would have scored to give Swoyersville a 5-4 lead.

Plains trumps Old Forge in extra innings Post 513 playoff hopes dashed in 3-2 loss By Matt Petrini

PAGE 44

Dispatch Correspondent

With both teams fighting for a spot in the upcoming Wyoming Valley American Legion playoffs, one inning could make or break the game, or a season for Old Forge and Plains. Unfortunately one inning – an extra inning – broke both for the Post 513 team on Friday night at Pagnotti Park in Old Forge. After Old Forge fought back to force extras, Plains’ Dom Gulius trickled a sacrifice bunt in the top half of the eighth which was fielded and launched past the first basemen - allowing the go-ahead

run to score from second as Plains trumped Post 513, 3-2, to remain alive for the WVAL postseason which starts Saturday at Mountain Post. Plains tacked on a run right out of the gate courtesy of Joe Parsnik. After Bob Sorokas drew a walk and Anthony Grillini followed with a single, Parsnik laced an RBI double to left scoring Sorokas from second as Plains took the early lead 1-0. Old Forge starter Ian Nemeworked out of the inning, retiring the final two batters to end the threat, and keep Post 513 in the game. Post 513 answered back in the

home half of the second when Dom Avvisato was hit by a pitch, and Derek Drasba drew a walk. After a strikeout and a passed ball, Nemetz helped out his own cause with an RBI-fielder’s choice to plate Avvisato from third as Old Forge evened up the score at 1-1. Plains starter Grillini dominated throughout the middle innings as Nemetz used timely pitches along with a solid defense behind him to keep the visitors off-balance until the sixth inning. But in the sixth, Sorokas led off the sixth with a single to first. After a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly to right, Parsnik connected on his second RBI of the game as he

slapped an fielder’s choice to shortstop, scoring Sorokas as Plains (12-5) took a late 2-1advantage. Connor Fultz launched Old Forge’s first hit of the game, a single to center and was quickly chased over to second on a single by AJ Phillips. With momentum switching hands, Drasba followed one batter later with an RBI single to left scoring, Fultz from third to tie the game at 2-2. Grillini restored order and retired the final two batters he faced, ending the threat. Entering extra innings, Anthony Grillini led off the eighth with a sharp double - which screamed

just past a diving Dave Chromey at first base – to set up the eventual game-winning run. Nemetz went five inning allowing four hits and one earned run and four strikeouts. Phillips allowed three hits in three innings of relief in taking the hard-luck loss for Old Forge. Old Forge (7-9) will travel to West Pittston today for a doubleheader with Greater Pittston, starting at noon. They will complete their season during the week with a game on Tuesday at Nanticoke, and a game on Thursday against Wilkes-Barre. See POST 513, Page 51

I N S I D E YO U R YA N K E E S

Baby Yanks holding four aces – and more By Tommy Romanelli

Special to the Dispatch

Last winter, the only thing I heard when it came to the New York Yankees is how they didn’t have any pitching and how they were going to be in trouble in the 2011 season because they were weak at that position. What the fans don’t realize, and it is funny how this never seemed to be brought up in the offseason, is how deep the Yankees actually are in starting pitching. The fans of the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees should be flooding to the stadium just to see the pitching talent this team has. They started this season with an all-prospect starting rotation. How many teams can say that? They have one of the three most hyped pitchers in the organization in Andrew Brackman. He is projected to be a top of the line starter in the majors someday. I’m not entirely convinced on Brackman just yet though. He’s got good stuff but the control is just not there yet. He’s one of those players that only time will tell but it’s still worth going to see such a highly ranked pitcher. The SWB rotation also has D.J. Mitchell, Adam Warren, and David Phelps in their stacked rotation. These players have been called the Yankees “second tier prospects.” They’re only called that, though, because the Yankees have the three super-prospects in Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances (both are at Double-A Trenton) and Brackman. Those pitchers are good enough that they would be top prospects on any other team. Some of them might even already be in the majors by now if they weren’t with the Yankees. They each have their advantages and disadvantages, though. D.J. Mitchell has always struggled in his career against lefties. This raises some concern because as a starting pitcher you need to command both lefties and righties. It seems, though, that Mitchell might have that figured out because lefties are only hitting .266 against him this year. He is an interesting prospect but I think he has the lowest chance out of the three pitchers to be successful at the big league level. Adam Warren, on the other hand, is having a terrific season. He’s pitching to a 3.09 ERA so far this season and he’s off to the best start out of the group. Warren is the type of prospect that gets you excited to have him on your team. He hasn’t struggled at any level, going back to his college days in North Carolina. The fascinating part about Warren is that he throws three different fastballs: one that breaks left, one that breaks right and one that drops. Having all three of those pitches will really help Warren go far. The final prospect is David Phelps. He is the pitcher that I like the most in SWB. Phelps is known for having what they call a “bulldog mentality” because his game is to attack the strike zone. Attacking the strike zone allows Phelps to keep his pitch count down and it lets him go deep into the games. In my opinion, Phelps has the best shot. His approach at the plate is exactly what you need to handle those pressures of pitching in New York and he has the stuff to go with it. With the injuries that the Yankees have been getting hammered with, fans should really be keeping an eye on these players. I think at least one of them will be up in the Bronx sooner rather than later. Tommy Romanelli is a WA Grad and a sophomore at LCCC. He writes for pinstripesplus.com. His thoughts on the SWB Yankees will appear in the Dispatch throughout the season.

championships at Seton. Others include Brendan Carroll, Mike McGarry, Ian Gilmartin and John Staub who is the head soccer coach Del Val high school. Casper said when the season approaches he’s not sure what it will be like without a basketball team to coach. “I’m looking to stay involved in the game at some level,” he said. One way he’ll stay involved is to keep his annual summer camp going by moving it from St. Mary’s to Wyoming Area Catholic. “Wyoming Area Catholic A.D., Mike Prociak, asked me to continue doing my camp at their site so Mark Casper’s HOOPS4ME CAMP will continue,” he said. The camp is August 15 to August 19 at the Wyoming Area Catholic gym. Call 760-6396 or e-mail hoops4me2@comcast.net for details or an application. Another way Casper will stay involved will be as Wyoming Valley Boys Catholic 8th Grade League president for the f ifth year. Casper said that the closing of Catholic schools in the diocese has caused rumors to surface that the league would fold. It won’t. Though down to just f ive schools -- Holy Rosary, Wyoming Area Catholic, St.

Jude’s Mountaintop, Good Shepherd and St. Nick’s/St. Mary’s Wilkes-Barre -- the league will operate next season. Casper said Good Sheppard, and maybe one other school, could enter two teams. Good Sheppard is hosued in the former Bishop O’Reilly high school in Kingston. In it’s heyday the league had seven teams in the Greater Pittston area alone in St. John the Baptist, St. Mary’s Avoca, St. Mary’s Old Forge, St. Mary’s Assumption, Wyoming Area Catholic, Mt. Carmel and St. Rocco’s. Casper said everyone involved with St. Mary’s and the basketball programs, boys and girls, over the years deserve praise. “I want to thank all of the parents for allowing me the privilege of coaching their children. I want to thank the teachers for their help and dedication to our student athletes. I also want to thank the past presidents and athletic directors for all of their cooperation. We always looked good and had the best equipment. “Finally, to every player that ever wore an SMA uniform, did a side drill, ran 17’s, or ran the dreaded ‘steps’, thanks for giving it your all and thanks for doing it the right way. It was my pleasure to have coached you and to have been a small part of your life.”

amateur in his twenties. When he decided to stop competing Redding decided to bring his unique knowledge of the sport to World Class Boxing. “I have a huge passion for the world of boxing and still needed to be around it,” said Redding. With Redding’s help along with Harris’ relentless hard work in 2009, Harris became the Pennsylvania Golden gloves Champion along with obtaining the Summer Gloves title. “I wouldn’t be nearly as good in the cage if it wasn’t for Coach Marty,” said Harris. Harris wanting to be skilled in all aspects of fighting decided to throw his hat into the cage as an MMA fighter. That’s when head coach Sean Diggs, an expert in Muay Thai, [Moy-tie] KickBoxing, and Jeet Kunedo (Bruce Lee’s style) decided to teach Harris a new way of fighting. You would think learning a completely new style of fighting would be difficult, but not for Harris. Harris combined the technical aspects of boxing with the fast paced aspects of MMA. “I train individuals based on their personalities. Harris is aggressive and sometimes it came so natural to him that we had to ask him to slow down,” said Diggs. Harris started competing as an amateur in MMA back in December defeating the more experienced Charles Fox by knock out in the first round. He went on to defeat amateur fighters Nicholas Piegari and Duane Shelton both by submission. “I have the whole package. I use the technical aspects of boxing, my martial arts, and my wres-

tling background to beat any opponent who crosses my path,” said Harris. Now Harris will be facing his biggest challenge by competing in his first pro MMA competition at the MASS ‘Inauguration’ on July 16, at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Harris will be matched up against Ohio’s Chase Owens who has an amateur record of 9-0 and a professional record of 2-0. Both have a wrestling background and both are undefeated. However, Harris isn’t worried. “I only worry about me and that’s it. I do not study my opponents because I bring something different to the table each time. I know I’m going to win.” On the same fighting card is pro undefeated MMA fighter and training partner Jim “The Kid” Hettes of Swoyersville. Hettes is another undefeated fighter whose record is 5-0 as an amateur and 7-0 as a pro. Hettes is an expert in Jujitsu and in boxing. He will be facing Jacob Kirwan who has an amateur record of 3-0 and a professional record of 8-0. “We’re both going to win and nothing can stop us,” said Hettes. Hettes has confidence in Harris and says that “Rex is an animal and it might be the first death in MMA.” Both fighters have trained hard in the gym and say they are ready to get the job done. Other local professionals fighting on the MASS card include Clarks Summit’s James “Humble Pie” Cianci and West Scranton’s Dave Morgan. The event also features UFC veteran Kris McCray.

him here this weekend. That ace on No.13 was for him." Not to be outdone by his teammate, Coleman sent his second shot from 150 yards out on the par-4 No. 17 to the top on the green. The ball slowly descended from the fringe and fell in for eagle. "My partner has been saying all weekend, we call the Allan(tournament) Christmas in June," Mulhern said. "The adrenaline was really flowing after that one." The duo went 7-under during the last nine holes of regulation to tie Crossin and Briggs, forcing the first of what would be three playoff holes.

SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, JULY 3, 2011 PAGE 50

Plenty to do this holiday weekend Just think about it, the year is half over. That’s right there are six months left to the year 2011. It seems like just yesterday when we were preparing to bring in the New Year with all of the parties and celebrations. Summer is here and it is time to get into the groove and enjoy it before the second half of this year passes. There is plenty to do this holiday weekend. Fishing, camping, hiking and boating are the obvious solutions. I have spent a good deal of time outside over the past two weeks. While I enjoyed every minute of it, most of it was spent dodging thunderstorms. The river may be less than perfect for bass fishing but then a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work. I recently spent a day on the west branch of the river in Lycoming County. This part of the Susquehanna River was also less than ideal and yet we still caught enough bass for an upcoming program on Pennsylvania Outdoor Life. Our cameras and fishing gear also spent a day on Lake Wallenpaupack. This trip began right at daybreak in the middle of the week. We all agreed that the conditions were perfect for wetting a line and it was. We boated more than our share of fish before the rest of the boaters hit the water. We fished well past noon before saying Uncle. The main reason for leaving the lake was the choppy waves created by the recreational boaters. Jet skis, water skiers and speed boats covered the lake by one o’clock and it was time to head home. The boating sports are alive and well in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission are aware of the increase in recreational boating and they have asked us to remind boaters to follow safety precau-

OUTDOORS WITH JAKE

tions when they are on the water. “Boating is among the most popular of summer recreational activities and a lot of people like to anchor their boats and go swimming,” said Ryan Walt, PFBC boating and watercraft safety manager. “However, a day of fun and sun out on the water could end in serious injury or even death if boaters don’t follow appropriate safety precautions. Every year we see accidents in which individuals swimming behind boats are struck by propellers.” Last year in Pennsylvania, 72 boating accidents were reported to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, 15 of which involved individuals being struck by propellers. Since 2000, three people have died as a result of being struck by a propeller. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, more than 6,000 boating accidents occur every year. The Commission says propeller strikes are among the most preventable of all boating accidents. It’s simple, follow a few safety precautions and enjoy a safe boating experience. It begins before the boat engine is started. Be sure to check around

the motor to make sure no one is nearby. Always attach the lanyard to the engine cut-off switch to your life jacket. If the lanyard is removed from the switch, the engine will shut off. Talk with the passengers about the propeller and the danger of swimming next to it. Discuss preventing falls overboard: Maintain three points of contact; keep your weight low and close to the centerline. Avoid rough water and adverse weather conditions whenever possible. Limit alcohol use. Make sure everyone has a life jacket on and assign a passenger to keep watch around the propeller area of your boat when people are in the water. Safe boating and common sense are important when boating. For more information on boating safety, go to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission homepage at www.fishandboat.com. There are safety practices for just about every form of outdoor recreation. Remember to wear sun screen and bug spray. If hiking is your bag, wear the right shoes and drink enough water to stay hydrated. Outdoor fires are a major part of a camping trip.

Be sure to build fires responsibly and put them out before walking away. Common sense should not be forgotten at home when packing for your summer adventure. Be prepared, be safe and enjoy your 4th of July holiday weekend! Sunday Hunting Update.

Two weeks ago I spoke out on behalf of Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania. It’s all because the House Game and Fisheries Committee are holding public hearings on the topic. I made a few points about the changing times and the need for our state to allow hunting to compete with the rest of the activities allowed on Sunday. I wrote about children’s sports, shopping, gambling as well as liquor sales. All of which you can do on a Sunday. The article also included the fact that the State Lawmakers had to change the law that would allow the Game Commission to decide on Sunday hunting. It also pointed out that the Pennsylvania Game Commission hadn’t taken a stand at all on the topic. That changed this week at the Pennsylvania Game Commis-

sion meeting. The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners approved a resolution to support repeal of the statutory prohibition on Sunday hunting. In short, they want the right to make the decision to hunt on Sunday. The resolution was proposed by Game Commissioner Jay Delaney Jr. (our local representative on the Commission) and seconded by Game Commissioner Ralph A. Martone. The final tally was four in favor, three opposed with one abstention. Game Commission staff will present the resolution to the House Game and Fisheries Committee at the next hearing. The meat of the resolution includes many reasons for a change. They include such things as consistent declines in hunting participation by both resident and non-resident hunters over the past several decades, the need to increase youth participation by effectively doubling the number of hunting days for youths during the school year by offering Sunday hunting, and recruiting new hunters and retaining current hunters by increasing hunting opportunities. It also included some economic points as well as a few positive notes about traditional hunting camps and clubs. You can read the entire resolution on the Pennsylvania Game Commission webpage at: www.pgc.state.pa.us. I applaud Commissioner Delaney and the other Commissioners in favor of the resolution for their actions this week. Now it’s time to get on the lawmakers to act accordingly. With that said, remember to get your hunting license because the first round of antlerless deer permits can go in the mail next Monday, July 11th.

out. However, Randy McDermott drew a key walk and Grove shattered any hopes Swoyersville had of winning the game with a walk-off double. Murphy was terrific for Greater Pittston on the mound and earned the complete-game win. He allowed four runs, only two of which were earned, while striking out five. “I knew we would be playing without a couple of our best hitters, so I wanted to make sure I had my best stuff today,” Murphy said. “I felt like my curve ball was really keeping hitters off balance and I was able to command my fastball.” Bellino, Grove, Eramo, and Murphy each had two hits in the 5-4 Greater Pittston win. The victory puts GP in position to qualify for the postseason and defend their WVAL title with a 12-3 record. The top four teams in the league qualify for the playoffs, and Greater Pittston is currently second behind Back Mt. who is 14-3. But the postseason is not secure for the locals as Plains (12-5), Nanticoke (12-6) and Swoyersville (12-7) are all close behind with five games left for GP. Greater Pittston played a doubleheader against Tunkhannock (5-9) yesterday after Dispatch deadlines, and play today in a doubleheader against Old Forge (7-9) before finishing the season at Mountain Post (5-12) on Tuesday. The WVAL playoffs begin Saturday at Mountain Post. GP 4, Nanticoke 7

Greater Pittston suffered its third loss in four games as Nanticoke rallied for a 7-4 victory on Wednesday afternoon. Nick O’Brien paced the GP offense with two hits, and Trent Grove, Matt Carroll and Ryan Carey each had RBI singles. Anthony Bellino was dealt the loss after allowing 10 hits and seven earned runs in 4.1 innings of work. Kyle Colarusso finished the game for GP, pitching the final 1.2 innings while allowing two hits and three walks. GP 8, Hazleton 0

Greater Pittston bounced back from its first two losses of the season with an 8-0 win over

Blandina Apartments split their two games and remains in first primarily because the second, third and fourth place teams beat up on each other. With just one week left in the first half the number one spot is still up for grabs. Dyller Law swept all three matches this and firmly secured a playoff spot. The Lawmen are Paul Santarelli, Erald Biondi, Barry Dyller and Paul Minichelli. They will be a force to be wary of come the second half. Atlas Realty is an enigma. This week they were undefeated. Last week they lost all their matches. Consistent is not the middle name of this team. At times they are brilliant, other times they are tarnished. Through all their ups and downs they are hanging onto the final playoff spot and making the post-season is the name of the
