Best of Ed Ackerman, optimist First appeared Aug. 10, 2008

Better to give, even under the bingo tent "The chief value of money," H.L. Mencken wrote, "is that having it is vastly overrated." I’m not sure if that is as true in 2008 as it was in 1908, but I do know that whether or not having money is overrated, giving it away is definitely underrated. I can think of nothing more fun than to give away money, even if it’s just a buck or two. I take that attitude each year to the bingo tent at the St. John the Evangelist Parish Community Bazaar where I call out the numbers one night each year as a favor to my friend Ann Noone. She asks and I can’t say no. This year, I had to leave a family reunion near Wyalusing early Friday evening in order to get to the bazaar in time for my 8 to 10 p.m. shift. "What’s it like to call the numbers at bingo?" several folks asked as I told them the reason for my early departure. "Well," I answered, "It’s two hours of little old ladies yelling at you, ‘Slow down!’ ‘Go fas-

ter!’ ’Speak up’ ‘Stop talking so much, just call the numbers!’ ’Aren’t there any B-4’s in there?’ That’s what it’s like." I should hate it, but I love it. I love it because I make it fun. Fun for me, anyway. I do that by making sure I have a pocketful of money to give away. It’s not a whole lot, but it’s enough to put smiles on some faces. I might, for example, throw a few dollars out of my pocket into the jackpot, just to make things more interesting. Sometimes it’s as little as a quarter to round out a jackpot of $14.75 to an even 15 bucks, sometimes more. Since the jackpot is determined by the number of people playing. I become an old-fashioned barker trying to drum up customers. Often I’ll entice teenagers to come and play by offering to pay for their games. It’s only 50 cents apiece... money well spent in my book. I reckon if I can get a few cute young girls to sit down and play,

some young boys will follow. The opposite holds true as well. I was wondering what else I could do this year to spice things up when, as I walked toward the tent to report for duty, I spotted an old friend Patrick Feeney selling "instant bingos." Instant bingos are little cards with flaps to open to see if you’ve won. The prize can be anything from a free ticket, all the way up to perhaps $25. Patrick was selling them four for a dollar and I bought five dollars worth. I used them to sweeten the jackpots. "The jackpot for the next game will be $12 and four instant bingo tickets." Know how well that went over? I had to get Patrick back three or four times to buy more tickets. There’s always a lull in the action between games as the helpers get cards for new players and collect money. That takes time and some of the players start squirming. I decided to keep them entertained by picking the first number for the next

game and asking everyone to guess what it was. I gave a dollar to the first person who got it right. That became a bit chaotic so I went back to trying to cajole people I recognized in the crowd to come in and play. Jimmy Narvid and his wife Mary obliged, God bless them. So did Jessica Brogna and her mom Sharon. And Josh Reynolds. And Jane Mulhern. During one lull, a young man came over holding a lamp, of all things. He must have picked it up at the flea market. Look at that guy, I said into the mic. He came to the bazaar and found the light of his life. Only one person laughed, a lady sitting behind me. I gave her a dollar. The best give-away of the night, however, came not from me. A little girl sitting behind me played for an hour and didn’t win a thing. Finally, her mom and dad said it was time to go and while I was trying to think of some sort of prize I could

give her, a man who played the entire two hours I was there and won a couple of times, called to me "Here," he said, "give her this," He was holding out a ten dollar bill. I took it and made a big deal presenting it to the little girl announcing she had won, "The Msgr, Bendik, Best Bingo Player under 4-Feet Tall with Blonde Hair Award," or something like that. She was delighted. Moments later, the gentlemen who donated the ten dollar bill, called to me again. "Take a look at this," he said. He had started opening the instant bingos that were part of one of his jackpots and the first one he opened was a ten dollar winner. The exact amount he had given away had come right back to him. The fellow, by the way was Frank Bendik, brother of Pastor Msgr. John Bendik. I suspected that much earlier in the night. He had the unmistakable Bendik laugh...probably honed by years of giving and having fun doing it.

Jimmy Duffy had a lot of friends in life. In death he has a lot of PALS. That would be PALS as an acronym for Prevent ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease which took Jimmy’s life on Valentine’s Day in 2009. Many of Jimmy’s friends knew him as the friendly, funny worker at the West Pittston Wine and Spirits Store. He was a Redskins and Phillies fan and loved his grandson Chase. Jimmy worked with his son Jay running the Pittston Tomato Festival 5K run. Jay is still a co-chair of the race committee. After his death Jimmy’s family and friends formed a PALS chapter in his name and have organized fund raisers for PALS. This coming Saturday, Au-

The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Mary Dirhan, 96, and son grow giant tomatoes

By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Before he retired from international banking, Coleman Dirhan, 67, lived in Japan, Brazil and Mexico. He’s seen a lot in life. His mother, Mary, who is 96, has seen a lot, too. But both say they have never seen anything like the monster in their backyard at Blueberry Hill Estates in Duryea. It’s a tomato plant so big it’s pulling down seven stakes, invading a rose bush, and yielding baseball and softball-sized tomatoes by the dozens from it’s 12 to 15 branches. The tomatoes are great eating, said Mary, who has a tomato sandwich every evening. One slice from the bigger tomatoes can fill a sandwich. “She’s in her glory,” Coleman said of his mother. Coleman, a

1962 graduate of West Pittston High School, moved back to the area to live with his mother after retiring four years ago. Coleman, who never grew tomatoes before, doesn’t claim to know the secret to tomato success. “I’m no green-thumber,” he said. “I did put Miracle-Gro on it, but other than that I absolutely have no explanation. This would be a great ad for Miracle-Gro. It’s outrageous. It’s like a jungle. Everybody who has seen it never saw anything like it. There are a lot more tomatoes coming, all different sizes and more flowers coming.” Mary, unlike her son, is very familiar with tomato plants. When she was growing up in Exeter her parents, John and Anna Zboray, grew hundreds of tomato plants on a lot on Grant Street. “We were known as the people

ally ran out. To start over he browsed a catalog and chose Hungarian Heart tomatoes from the ox heart family for his next heirloom line. The Hungarian Hearts are meaty, juicy and minimally seedy, making them perfect for salads, sandwiches and canning. But the best thing about them Malinoski said is, “the luscious taste.” He has three plants in his yard in Exeter and they have been producing some giants, too. Of Mary’s plants he said, “I’m glad she’s had so much success with hers.

with the little farm,” she said. Mary said none of the hundreds of plants her parents grew were anything like the plant in their yard in Duryea. “That thing is like a tree.” Mary brought the plant home from a Cosmopolitan Seniors club meeting, where it was given to her by club president Victor Malinoski. It was a single stem eight inches high when Coleman planted it just after Memorial Day. Malinoski said the plant is an heirloom, meaning the seeds are saved from year to year. He said he did that for years, but eventu-

She must be giving them tender loving care.” As much as Coleman and Mary love eating the tomatoes in salads and sandwiches, they can’t eat them fast enough. They have been giving them away to neighbors and friends. Coleman’s “dear friend” Amy Alpaugh got two of the biggest of the tomatoes. She estimates they are three pounds each. After Coleman gave her the tomatoes Alpaugh brought them to the Dispatch office saying to Coleman as she left, “I have to tell them about it.”

The ‘Y’ is a ‘second family’ for many including Dessoye By Alexandra Antonacci

Dispatch Correspondent

Judy Dessoye – YMCA’s Aquatic director, coach and teacher basically has chlorine in her blood. Following in the footsteps of her father who was a lifeguard, swimming is a major part of her life. “Once a swimmer always a swimmer I guess,” said Dessoye. A self-proclaimed, “Y rat,” Dessoye’s earliest memory from the old YMCA on Broad Street was when she joined the 8 and under swim team. Later she joined the leaders club, which lets members under 15 help teach a class like gymnastics or swimming which later they could be certified in. When she was only14, due to a petition from members of the Pittston Y she received her lifeguard

certification. “We were there all the time, we went to school and went to the Y,” said Dessoye. She grew up at the Y, then later devoted herself to the Y. With all the knowledge she gained from her sport, she did the best thing she could with it - pass it along to others. Now as the Aquatic Director at the Y, a normal day is quite busy. She starts her day around 8 making sure every aspect of the pool is ready, from checking the chemicals to double checking that lifeguards are on deck. “Well from 6:30 in the morning, basically all day long we have lap swimmers coming in the Y. We love lap swimmers because we love triathletes, I always keep a lane open for them,” said Dessoye. From 9 a.m. on there are lessons: private, semi-private, or

group. Sometimes the Y preschool kids come in for a swim but most often the aerobic class is there getting their sweat on. Although she works some long days, she is certain of what her favorite part of her job is. “The look on a child’s face

when they get it, when everything clicks and they can see that they got the stroke. If its doggy paddle, butterfly, backstroke or it’s just jumping off the block just that look that I can do it,” said Dessoye. She also understands the impact she has at the Y.

“This year we had an 8 and under little girl join in January. So you’re midseason, almost at the end of the season at January. And she was crying and she was sitting on the bench,” said Dessoye telling the story. “Nina just went over and talked to her and said what’s the matter, she said. ‘I can’t dive.’ And she knelt down and looked at her and said don’t worry were a family here, this is our family. And Judy takes care of all of us and we’ll all learn how to dive and she took her hand c’mon we’ll try diving now. That broke my heart to have one of my kids who was only 11 to say something like that. It proves that I am doing something great. “If anybody needs anything we’re always there, we will always come in, we don’t really count hours, its a second home.”

The bell was removed from the tower in St. Mary’s Assumption Church last week where for many years it was rung by hand to herald the Angelus, a Catholic tradition of a call to prayer at 6 a.m. noon and 6 p.m. The 111-year-old bell was forged of bronze in 1900 at the famed McShane Foundry in Baltimore, which is still a leading manufacturer of bells. The St. Mary’s bell, as are all Catholic Church bells, was given a name -- Maria Immaculate or Mary Immaculate. The bell is in storage and will eventually be donated to another church.

FACTS OF LAW

SD

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq. Vermont and New Hampshire have no daily cap on hours worked by teens, nor does federal law. Massachusetts and Rhode Island allow up to nine hours a day. Likewise, federal law, New Hampshire and Vermont don’t have a limit on how late teens can work; Massachusetts is set at 10 and Rhode Island at 11:30. As for hours per week, federal law and Vermont have no limit, Massachusetts and Rhode Island are at 48 and New Hampshire is at 30. *** Illinois has a new law aimed at forcing online retailers to collect sales taxes in the state. Hawaii, North Carolina and Rhode Island have enacted similar laws. *** A new law eliminates drivers’ rights to refuse to take a breath test in Wyoming. *** By an 8-1 vote, Clarence Thomas dissenting, the Supreme Court has given federal judges more leeway to provide second chances to the criminals who come before them. *** The First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco ruled recently that a search of a 16 year old was illegal and overturned his conviction because the police officer had requested that the young man not leave, and, even if a request, “it cannot be said that a reasonable youth in D.B.’s situation would have believed that he was free to leave the scene.”

OUR OPINION Entrepreneurs rock our world No matter the recession. No matter the condition of the streets. No matter the risk. No matter what, there are always entrepreneurs willing to give small business a shot. And we’re not just talking about Pittston -- though small businesses pop here regularly – we say anywhere and everywhere, entrepreneurs rock! And they are the rock that our economy was built on and will be rebuilt on no matter what the government does. Some small businesses are handed down and span generations. For example 100 years ago A.S. Powers was selling sleds from their hardware store on Main Street for 75 cents to a $3.75 and Egan’s was making mining equipment. Thomas’ Barbeque in Moosic has been in the same family since the 1920s. Tony’s Pizza is an example of a small business which survived and even thrived after an ownership change. But those long-running businesses are exceptions. Most small businesses come and go. Not long ago small businesses lined the streets of all our little Main Streets as the empty storefronts from Wyoming to Duryea attest. Some fell victim to the changing times – suburbia, malls, big boxes. Others died out when subsequent generations chose college and professional careers over selling watches, clothes or meat. But back to our modern day entrepreneurs. In our opinion they have guts. They have old fashioned work ethics. They have ideas. They have dreams. In the past year or so the Dispatch has run stories about business start ups from the up scale bar and restaurant in Hughestown to the film-to-DVD business in Wyoming to the breakfast and lunch and the high quality New York City-style Italian restaurants on South Main to the pizza restaurant on North Main. The Dispatch as also done stories on business which have survived to celebrate anniversaries. Cookie Corner and Sabatelle’s are good examples. Thinking of Sabatelle’s it strikes us that as much as it is a celebration of the tomato, the Tomato Festival is really a celebration of small businesses, without which the festival could not exist. Come to think of it, not much of anything as we know it could exist without small businesses. So to all you would be entrepreneurs out there, thank you for your dreams, your ideas, your work ethic. Entrepreneurs – you rock our world.

YOUR OPINION Tomato Festival Committee liked editorial On behalf of the Tomato Festival Committee thank you for the kind words about our committee in last week’s editorial. I don’t think we’ve ever been recognized so eloquently and we humbly appreciate your kind words about our efforts to present a festival in which all of us can be proud. Sure, we hear complaints and we volunteer countless hours, but it is truly is a labor of love. Love for the people in our community...love for Pittston. And what’s not to love? We have something so special here; a colorful history, a sense of community pride and friendships that span generations. We have been fortunate that we have a seasoned committee with members who were there from the beginning, and recently,

several young people have expressed interest in taking on additional responsibilities. It is our hope that the next generation will be inspired to join us as we continue to make our festival better every year. The Festival’s success is the result of teamwork. With the support of dedicated committee members, Pittston City Officials, and our entire community, the Pittston Tomato Festival will continue to thrive for many years to come. Sincerely, Lori Nocito Chairperson Pittston Tomato Festival Committee

Oblate Fathers send ‘Thank you’ On behalf of the Oblates of St. Joseph priests of Greater Pittston, I would like to express deepest gratitude to all who assisted with our first ever “FUN FEST” last Saturday. This was first time event that involved much planning and hard work. I am especially grateful to the chairperson and newly elected president of our OSJ Lay Association, Elaine Fisher, for overseeing the event. I was touched by the number of people from parishes throughout Greater Pittston who volunteered long hours. Many from the local business community, as well, also assisted with financial donations, loaning of equipment and supplying gifts for the specialty baskets. Among them, I would like to thank “the voice of Pittston” the Sunday Dispatch for their extensive coverage of this event. Gratitude must also be expressed for the outstanding cooperation from the Laflin police and fire departments.

Finally, my heartfelt appreciation to all of our friends who came out to support us and enjoyed the delicious foods and many activities. Unfortunately, “mother nature” was not cooperative as she sent some rain down upon us, but it did not dampen the spirits of our people and the joyful atmosphere among everyone. God bless each and every one of you for your hard work and support of our seminary. We hope to make this an annual event for our local community, with the help of God and the ever-loyal support of the wonderful people of my hometown. Sincerely, Father Paul A. McDonnell, OSJ Rector – Oblates of St. Joseph Seminary

When we were drinkers strances.” The Reverend J. J. Curran of Holy Savior Church in Wilkes-Barre would spend all day in court giving remonstrances. He refused to accept donations from bar owners. In his sermon on February 20, 1911 he said, “I will send out pledge cards to every adult member of the congregation next week and I expect you will sign and return them to me before Lent.” Wonder how that worked out? Anyway, the county judges had to decide whether to grant or deny every license in the county every year -- be it an existing license under the same name as the year before, an application to buy an existing license or an application for a new license – and there were a lot of them. Wilkes-Barre alone had 176 bars. The process took two months. In March of 1911 Judge Fuller denied all 50 petitions for new licenses in Nanticoke, where there were already 103 bars for a population of a little over 18,000 which meant there was a bar for every 180 residents. Adding 50 new bars would reduce that ratio to a bar for every 125 residents, and Judge Fuller, who must have been a bit of a comedian, said, “Those proportions exceed any that exist in another civilized or uncivilized community on the face of the earth except the borough of Freeland.” Freeland had 75 bars and a population of 6,197 for a ratio of one bar for every 80 men, women and children in town. In the Pittston area besides the 75 licenses in the city in 1911 there were 37 in Duryea, 22 in Avoca, 21 in Exeter, 9 in Wyoming, 7 each in Hughestown and West Wyoming and one in Yatesville. West Pittston was dry and remained so until after prohibition. Going into the bar business then, as now, was expensive. A license was $250. A lot of the owners, especially those staring up or buying existing licenses, hired lawyers who charged $300 to $500. That was a chunk of change for an owner who might be expected to clear $1,000 in a year. It’s weird to imagine how prohibition changed things. Was it like one day in 1920 there were 75 businesses in Pittston providing 150 or so jobs and the next day they were gone? Some of those bars turned into luncheonettes, pool rooms, cigar stores, and pop shops, but how many of those could thirsty miners support? Some of the bars, of course, went right on selling alcohol, when they could get it, with a wink and a nod from the local police who didn’t see it as their job to enforce prohibition. The county, state and federal government did the enforcing, such as it was. In newspaper archives I looked at the names of license applicants in the Pittston area in 1911 and 1912. Of the close to 200 names I looked at I found only one which I recognized as surviving prohibition. Jacob Walutes had a bar on Seventh Street in Wyoming in 1911. His grandson Barry ran the same bar into the 1990s.

Tomatoes: filling and low in calories It’s that time again, when the home grown tomatoes appear in our gardens, markets and kitchens. Tomatoes are a great fruit, or in our country known as a vegetable. Tomatoes are a great low calorie food which can fill you up without a lot of calories. Our bodies have a way of telling our brain that we have achieved that fullness in our stomach. The key is to weight loss and management is to fill your stomach with fewer calories and achieve that fullness feeling. This mechanism can sometimes give mixed signals especially if we have something called sleep apnea. The two appetite-regulating hormones that come into play are called ghrelin and leptin. Ghrelin, which is produced in the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates appetite, while leptin, produced in fat cells, sends a signal to the brain when you are full. Studies show the production of these may be influenced by how much or how little we sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep, it drives leptin levels down, which means you don’t feel as satisfied after you eat. Lack of sleep also causes ghrelin levels to rise, which means your appetite is stimulated, so you want more food. One of the more interesting studies in this area came from Stanford and the University of Wisconsin. About1,000 volunteers reported the number of hours they slept each night. Doctors then measured their levels of ghrelin and leptin, as well as charted their weight. They found those who slept less than eight hours a night not only had lower levels of leptin and higher levels of ghrelin, but also a higher level of body fat. And, those who slept the fewest hours per night weighed the most. But there was an interesting finding for those in the study with sleep apnea. They actually had unusually high leptin levels, which should not be contributing to weight gain. Researchers believe those with sleep apnea may be leptin-resistant (just like those with Type 2 diabetes are insulin-resistant) meaning there is leptin in the blood stream, but they are not responding to it. In other words, the body is trying to tell a person to stop eating, but his or her brain isn’t receiving the message. The research also revealed when sleep apnea is treated, ghrelin levels go down reducing appetite, and there is less resistance to leptin, which allows the brain to receive the signal that a person is full. Not only does the treatment of sleep apnea possibly affect appetite so a person eats less, it also boosts energy and activity. In addition, if a person is not as tired, he or she won’t need to rely on sweet foods and high carbohydrate snacks to keep them awake, and that means eating fewer calories. Enjoy this easy to make tomato side dish. Skillet Zucchini w/Chopped Tomatoes 1 tsp olive oil 1 cup onion, chopped 4 small zucchinis, thinly sliced 2 medium tomatoes, chopped ground pepper In a large skillet, Add olive oil, onions and cook, stirring until softened. Add zucchini and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for 3-5 minutes or until zucchini is tender-crisp. Season to taste with pepper. Serve on a whole wheat tortilla sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese and make it a meal! If you suspect you might have sleep apnea, talk to your doctor about testing options.

Some 40 years ago in one of those fact books for hipsters – it might have been the People’s Almanac which was published in 1975 -- there was a list of areas with the highest concentration of mom and pop taverns. Now I’m trying to remember something from the 70s, so bare with me, but I think the list was a top 10. Of the ten areas with lots of little bars nine were neighborhoods in Milwaukee, a town made famous by beer, and the other was -- you guessed it, we are right in the middle of it – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. There may have been a lot bars in Pittston 40 years ago, but in 1975 we were practically Baptists compared to 60 years before that. One hundred years ago in 1911 there were 75 licensed bars in Pittston. Today there are 14 not counting private clubs and that includes two Convenient Stores. Most of the other 12 are more restaurant than bar. But 100 years ago most of them were more bar than restaurant unless you were partial to pickled eggs. In some sections along Main Street the front doors lined the sidewalks. There were nine bars between 635 and 677 North Main Street in the first of the then 11 wards in Pittston. Thomas Milauckas ran a bar at 647 North Main. Thomas Rowan’s was at 649 and M.J. Toole’s was at 653. There were 12 in what was then the second ward between 127 and 197 North Main. Among those were Frank Katkowski’s bar at 187, Joe Kemezis’s at 189 and Charles Rudaitis’s at 193 North Main. Like those three, most of the other nine bars in that ward had Eastern European surnames. Ethnic sections were a trend throughout the city. For example down on South Main in the ninth ward John Barrett, Oliver Burke, Daniel Cavanaugh, Charles Heffron, Patrick Kearney, William McAndrew and John Tierney ran establishments. In the third ward at 385, 449 and 453 North Main Lynott, O’Brien and Langan were pouring ‘em. All but 10 of the 75 bars in Pittston in 1911 were on Main Street. Six of the off-Main bars were in the fifth and sixth wards on Centre, Stark, Mill, Carroll, Broad and Ewen Streets. Among the owners were Charles Kizis and Elizabeth Boos, one of the few female licensees. Barbara Boyle was another. She ran a hotel at 25 Water Street. Italian-owned bars weren’t common. Luigo Bianco had one at 635 North Main and Chiavaccie Leopolo one at 53 South Main. Michael Loquasto, Guiseppe Matarazzi and Peter Peovesano had bars on South Main, but Ralph Restuccia did not. He applied for a license but was denied by a county judge. There was no LCB in 1911 and liquor licenses applications were heard in open court by county judges. They held regular hearings and a lot of citizens testified for and against. The testimonies against allowing licenses were called “remon-

Peeking into the past

Last week I wrote about the ninth annual Dispatch Cup 1988 Golf Tournament set for Fox Hill Country Club and asked if anyone remembered the outcome. Len Cole- With Judy Minsavage man the golf coach for the combined Wyoming Area and Pittston Area team called to let us know that Wyoming Area took the overall team championship and Matt Burdett of Pittston Area took the individual low score. Thank you Len. Question #1 In 1950, what did several Pittston gentlemen engage in that involved a Pallino?

1960 – 51 Years ago At 3:01 a.m. on August 21, 1960 The Bell Telephone Company placed direct distance dialing in operation affecting local central offices. Local customers with more than 18,000 phones could call approximately 40 million phones in 9,000 communities in the United States and Canada. The cost of preparation for this service was $800,000. In order to make this possible the United States and Canada were divided into more than 100 dialing areas each with its own three-digit area code. Calls were automatically recorded on continuous perforated tapes that were later processed into accounting machines for billing. Two local gentlemen, Jess Lipfert of Exeter and Henry Knowles of West Pittston had quite a friendly rivalry going. Both avid gardeners, the men took home a total of 43 ribbons at a local garden show sponsored by Lehman Flower Club. Lipfert took home 28 ribbons and Knowles 15. At an earlier show Knowles took 15 ribbons for his dahlias, black knight Pacific hybrid delphinium, Evangeline lovely pinks, dahlia flowered zinnia, carnation, French dwarf single marigold and a white toreni. Lipfert took six ribbons for his house plant entries. A show in New Hope was next on the schedule for the two men. The razing of Wilson School in Duryea was a priority of city council as an inspection revealed the building to be a fire hazard. At an earlier fire, a container of gasoline was discovered in a stairwell of the building. Council agreed to notify owners of their deci-

1970 – 41 Years Ago John Finan of Pittston and Stanley Osiecki of Harding were fishing near Coxton yards when they heard cries for help. Both men quickly maneuvered their boat to the area behind Dymond’s Store and the source of the cries and found three boys caught in a deep swift current. Finan and Osiecki pulled the three boys ranging in age from 15 to 17 out of the river. It seemed the boys were trying to catch some bait and waded into a dangerous section. Earlier in the summer, Mr. Osiecki rescued an exhausted young girl swimming across the river in the same location. Navy Seaman William R. Ross of Wyoming and Navy Seaman Apprentice Donald J. Banellis of Pittston were serving aboard the USS Forrestal in the Mediterranean. The first carrier built specifically to support jet aircraft. The ship was affectionately called "The FID" because James Forrestal was the first Secretary of Defense, FID standing for "First In Defense". The ship was decommissioned on September 11 1993. After a valiant struggle by many supporters to have her transitioned to a naval museum, the ship is moored at Pier 4 in Philadelphia, next to USS John F. Kennedy. It is expected either Forrestal will remain there until the Navy sells her as scrap, is sunk as a target, or scuttled as an artificial reef. Top ten songs of 1970: 1. Make It With You, Bread. 2. Ohio, CSN&Y. 3. In the Summertime, Mungo Jerry. 4. Are You Ready, Pacific Gas & Electric. 5. Spill the Wine, Eric Burdon and War. 6. Westbound #9, Flaming Ember. 7. War, Edwin Starr. 8. 25 or 6 to 4, Chicago. 9. Tell It All Brother, Kenny Rodgers & First Edition. 10. Superman, Ides of March. Question #2 St. John the Evangelist Church experienced a first in 1980, what was it? 1980 – 31 Yeas Ago The Wyoming Theatre was listed in the official state records as the oldest continuously operating motion picture theatre in the state in 1980. Celebrating its 68th anniversary owner Lou Marinos and his wife Noreen continued the business his family had started on August 15, 1912. Marinos

attributed the biggest box office attraction to Gone With The Wind, which ran 17 times to a packed house. Ann Marie Pompino of Old Boston and Roberta Voveris of Pittston spent their summer vacation aboard the SS Rotterdam on a seven-day cruise to Nassau and Paradise Island. Launched in September 1958, The Rotterdam was one of the most successful passenger ships of all time. After 49 years at sea, the ship returned to the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands on August 8, 2008 and now serves as a combination museum/hotel and school for vocational training. 2000 – 11 Years Ago in correlation with the Pittston Tomato Festival, Joan Martin, Exeter; Pauline Reedy, Duryea; Rachel Alba, Pittston; Tony Pacchioni, Exeter, Dorothy Rubel Leyshon, Pittston; Ann Haas, West Pittston, Joan Martin, Exeter; Bruce Falkinburg, Pittston, Marcia Wazeter, Pittston, Janet Altieri Russo, Avoca and Connie Lyn A. Saia, Pittston all submitted their best tomato recipes for a contest run by the Dispatch. Does anyone remember who won the contest? Call me at 602-0168 and we will publish the winning recipe next week. Jamie Bartollotto, 1999 Tomato Festival Queen was prepared to give up her crown to one of six girls vying for the title in 2000, Donna Kaminski of Harvey’s Lake, Ashley Razawich of Dallas, Theresa Gilhooley of Avoca; Amy Withers, Dallas or Kristina Baron, Laflin. Answer #1 Members of the Bocce Club, Joseph Rose, Lou Berardi Michael Naples, Sam Pettito, Philip Bianco, Carlo Colarusso, Carmen DeMinico, Charles Adonizio, Michael Naples Jr., Carmen De Russo, Babe Buttafoca, John Glenn, Louis Tribbet, John Casa, Ernest Buttafoca, Sam Adonizio, George Colarusso and Michael Pisano gathered to play the game on Upper Butler Street. The Pallino is a little ball that is tossed onto the court. Points are gained by nearness to the Pallino of the larger balls thrown. The smaller ball is also known as the Jack. Answer #2 St John the Evangelist Church in Pittston held their first family picnic in August of 1980 at the Garden of Eden Grove, Falls. Rev. John Sempa supplied children with rides on a golf cart. The many who attended experienced great food and family fun.

1950 – 61 Years Ago As the body of Private Francis Guitson of Duryea arrived at the D.L. & W. Station in Scranton, several young men were reporting as draftees for the escalating Korean conflict. Private Guitson, a member of the 52nd Armored Infantry Battalion that participated in both D-Day action and the Battle of the Bulge, died as a prisoner of war in 1945 during World War II. The Korean conflict was heating up. Inchon was the site of a new offensive planned by UN and US troops lead by General Douglas McArthur. Several local organizations decided to hold an event to honor new enlistees and reservists re-entering service. Lt John Martin and Jack Williams of Pittston were called back. Corporal Charles Davis of Dupont and Pfc. Robert Venetz of West Pittston already serving were on their way to Korea. The victory at Inchon helped to avoid a harsh winter campaign. By invading at the northern strong point behind enemy lines, the UN and US forces isolated the North Korean army from supplies and communications. The Adam Kalmanowicz Post American Legion and the Exeter Memorial Post Veterans of Foreign Wars set up a joint committee to install markers for two historical points in the Battle of Wyoming of July 3, 1778. Leonard Campbell, Jess Lipfert, Ben Anselmi, Thomas McNeil, John Hetro, Joseph Petrosky and Alphonse Chepalis investigated the cost of erecting plaques at the location of Fort Wintermute, the British quarters, and the line upon which the Battle of Wyoming began on Battle Avenue extending to Wyoming Avenue. The bronze plaques were to be fastened to boulders. According to

www.northamericanforts.com, Fort Wintermute was a “stockade house built by Tory settlers from New York. Also spelled. “Wintermoot,” and also known as Wintermoot’s Fort, the settlers there sided with the British forces attacking the Wyoming Valley in July 1778, but the fort was burned anyway. Site is located between Wyoming Avenue and the Susquehanna River.” The project was expected to be completed by November 11, 1950.

YMSR hosting annual Chicken Dinner on Saturday


SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, AUGUST 21, 2011

Dupont intersections designated for paving in Sept. Dupont Borough Council approved the Pave Patch Work Project at Tuesday’s Council meeting with the job tentatively scheduled for September 10. Street intersections designated for patching are Simpson, Curtain, Lincoln and Smith. Council members Mark Kowalczyk and Jeff Kaminski detailed the project to residents in attendance at the Council meeting. Joe Mihalka will provide the paver and roller, council members will donate their labor, and the borough will purchase the blacktop and rent two tri-axles to complete a scratch coat. Kowalczyk explained that the patching project is not a complete pave job but it will make the roadways passable and smoother to travel. This should hold the streets for a couple of years until additional grant monies are awarded to pave curb to curb. Council previously approved the project with the cost not to exceed $4,500. The total cost including the blacktop comes to $4,100. Kowalczyk noted that Mihalka was helpful in keeping the project within budget, leaving a little room in case a section needs more work. Acting Police Chief Sgt. Saranchuk requested a list of street and the police department will enforce a no parking zone when the work begins.

Lou Ciampi

Back in 1980 the PIAA didn’t run a football state championship tournament. But if it had Wyoming Area might well have been in the championship game and Lou “Bikes” Ciampi, a center, nose guard and captain of that team, would have been right in the middle of things. As things were the 1980 Warriors were 12-0 and beat Pottsville 29-27 in the Eastern Conference Championship game that season. Pottsville was considered the no. 1 team in the state going into the game. Asked his reaction to being called for induction, Ciampi joked. “When they called I said, you know this isn’t Dolhon,” referring to Greg Dolhon who was the team’s offensive star and winner of the Falcone Trophy as MVP of the Pittston Area game that season. On a serious note he said, “I’m honored to be inducted into the Luzerne County hall of fame and join not only some great ball players much more talented than myself, but to join people who have given so much back to this community.” Ciampi was a 3-year letterman and 2year starter for WA. He was an All Conference Center his junior and senior years. Wyoming Area was 32-4 during his varsity career. The 12-0 1980 season is the program’s only undefeated season. At Dickinson College Ciampi was a four-year letterman. A three-year starter at center, he was captain his senior year and received the Coaches Award in 1984. He is co-founder of the Wyoming Area Football Alumni Association which

raised thousands for a weight room, scoreboard, equipment and scholarships. Ciampi isn’t all about football. He was the founder of the Luzerne County JumpA-Thon raising thousands for the Luzerne County Heart Association and he’s a youth soccer coach. He is president of Independent Graphics, Inc. in Pittston. Ciampi lives in Wyoming with his wife Lisa and three children, Louis 6, Nicholas 3 and Mia 10

months. Asked for one standout memory from his playing days, Ciampi recalled the final play of that 1980 championship game against Pottsville when Pottsville missed a field goal attempt which would have won the game. “I was rushing on the play. When the kick went off I didn’t immediately realize they would have won the game if it was good. The moment it hit me they could

George Aldrich was a three-sport athlete in his younger days. At Pittston Area High School he concentrated on basketball with outstanding results. In his senior season 1977-1978 the Patriots won the District 2 championship and Aldrich won two Wyoming Valley Conference Most Valuable Player awards, the official conference MVP and the Hughestown Sports Club’s "Gene Guarilia" Award for WVC’s Most Outstanding Player. Aldrich was a four-year starter at King’s College and was Mid-Atlantic Conference All-League his junior year and MAC League MVP his senior year. When he graduated in 1982, he was the school’s second all-time leading scorer. George played three years with the Scranton Miners. He played two years with the Washington Generals playing in 40 countries on a Harlem Globetrotters World Tour. He owns and operates Aldrich Medical Supply in Pittston and Clarks Summit. An avid golfer, Aldrich is a member of the Glenmaura Golf Club. Aldrich resides in Avoca with his wife Jean Ann. They have three children: Julia, Lauren and William. Asked for his reaction to being inducted, Aldrich said, “I wasn’t expecting it that’s for sure. When I got the letter from the committee, I was pleasantly surprised and excited.” For a guy who was a league MVP in high school and college and played all over the world, Aldrich’s best memories are of his youth, the Jolly boys and Stan Waleski. “Growing up in Avoca I had the great fortune to play at the Avoca Community Center where the Jolly Boys ran everything. That place was no bigger than a living room, but to me it was like Madison Square Garden. I remember Stan Waleski, he was only in high school himself, would get yelled at in practice by coach Jack Farrell at Scranton Prep and then come down to Avoca and put us through drills. He drove us around to tournaments which was pretty impressive since he was only in high school himself.” Things came full circle. These days AlSee PIZANO, Page 51


Bone to pitch for Division I UMBC Pittston Area grad accepted offer in late July By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Timing is everything. And for Jordan Bone, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. A solid season on the hill for Pittston Area – combined with an outstanding American Legion season for Plains – has presented the lefty pitcher with the opportunity to play at the Division I level for the University of Maryland Baltimore County. “I’m really excited. I can’t wait to go,” said Bone who will leave this week for the school located just off the Baltimore Beltway. Bone had originally committed to Lackawanna College earlier this spring but when the opportunity arose to play for the Retrievers he couldn’t pass it up. “They had a lefty drop out and they invited me down for a visit. I really liked the school and they offered on the visit. It’s an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.” The opportunity was also something Bone had earned ac-

cording to Pittston Area Pitching Coach John Richards. “The growth in him is amazing,” said Richards of Bone’s development during his three years playing for the Patriots. “The kid worked his butt off but it was his self-confidence that pushed him over the top.” Pittston Area Head Coach Paul Zaffuto agreed. “Jordan’s maturity level has gone up tremendously over the past year,” said the veteran Patriots skipper. “We were impressed with his talent as a sophomore, but as a junior he didn’t display the confidence, desire or moxie that was needed to put him in the top tier of pitchers. He gave in too much. “But he put in a whole summer’s work before his senior year on his mechanics and he started to believe he was one of the best pitchers. Once he gained that confidence, he never looked back.” Bone stands just 5’9 and weights 160-pounds, but his me-

chanics are what attracted UMBC coaches to him. “They loved him mechanically,” said Richards. “Once they got around to looking at some tape of Jordan it just took off from there.” Bone becomes the third PA player under Zaffuto to play Division I baseball. Former Patriots shortstop Chris Tonte played at Pitt, and first baseman Sam Parente will play for the Panthers this fall. Both spent two seasons at Lackawanna before moving on to play Division I. It is something Bone is taking pride it. “I think it is pretty cool to be the third person (to play Division I).” said Bone. “I owe it to my coaches. They have coached a lot of great players, and know what it takes to be successful. “It feels good to help get some recognition for our program.” UMBC plays in the America East Conference against Albany, Binghamton, Boston University, Hartford, Maine, New Hampshire, Stony Brook and Vermont.

Alsalahat earns PSCA all-state honor OFHS grad plans to walk-on at University of Florida

By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Lackawanna Division II Coaches All-Star Team. “It’s a shame the coaches in our league didn’t recognize what the coaches around the state did. She has worked on her game year round ever since I’ve know her. She has been a leader since the first day she came to us as a freshman, and the toughness she has shown throughout her career, playing through injuries, is a credit to her. “The honor given to her is very deserving.” Alsalahat burst onto the scene as a freshman third baseman, helping lead the Blue Old Forge third baseman Andi Alsalahat was named to the PSCA All-State team.

See ALL-STATE, Page 51

On her way to college this past week, Old Forge’s Andi Alsalahat got some news she certainly wasn’t expecting but was still glad to hear. Alsalahat was named to the Pennsylvania Softball Coach Association All-State team, earning First-Team honors on the Class 1A team as a third baseman. It’s the second time Alsalahat was named to the PSCA team. She earned honorable mention honors as a sophomore catcher in 2009 after the Blue Devils trip to the PIAA State Championship game. “I actually found out about it

while I was on my way to UF,” Alsalahat said of her trip south to the University of Florida. “First-Team All-State has been one of my goals since I first started playing softball. I was really shocked considering I didn’t make the league (firstteam) team. But this makes up for it. “To achieve this goal is one of the greatest feelings.” Old Forge Head Coach Pat Revello was one person who wasn’t shocked to learn about Alsalahat’s selection. “I was more surprised she wasn’t selected to the firstteam in our league,” said Revello of Alsalahat being named to just second-team on the

Double-sessions underway on local gridirons Patriots, Warriors, Blue Devils all home Friday night with scrimmages By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

All three local high school football teams opened practice this past Monday with customary double-sessions. Mother-nature cooperated for the most part as teams officially opened the season under overcast skies and 70-degree days during the first few days of practice. Pittston Area, Wyoming Area and Old Forge completed their first week of practice with scrimmages yesterday. The Patriots traveled to Abington Heights, the Warriors hosted Scranton Prep, and the Blue Devils traveled to North Pocono. All three teams will be home this week when Pittston Area hosts Dunmore, Wyoming Area hosts Valley View and Old Forge hosts Lakeland. All three games will be played Friday night.

The Pittston Area game against Tunkhannock to open the season is back on for Friday night at Tigers Stadium. The game originally scheduled for Sept. 2 was moved to Saturday afternoon early last week but was returned to Friday night later in the week. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

Redeemer,” Benfante said. “With that being said, I think we should win our division.” Although he believes they will win the division this season, he doesn’t think it will be easy. “We have all of our players coming back and we won the division last season,” Benfante said. “But, I don’t think we’re going to be able to walk through it. It wouldn’t surprise me if we dropped an away match to Coughlin or Tunkhannock at Tunkhannock.” If the Patriots win their division they will most likely meet the Royals in the playoffs. “For the league title, I’m going to say Redeemer is the favorite,” Benfante said. “Until we beat them, people can say all they want about how we have Brandon (Matthews). We didn’t beat them last year and we had Brandon.” But that doesn’t mean Benfante doesn’t think his team cannot beat the Royals. “Personally, I will be upset if we don’t beat them,” Benfante said. “We made the playoffs, now the next step is to win the league.”

Brandon Matthews may be one of the most talked about athletes in the area. However, Pittston Area has more than one solid player on its 2011 golf squad. Veteran Head Coach Len Benfante is excited about his whole team this year, which includes his top five players from 2010. Matthews and juniors Ryan Tracy, Matt Carroll, C.J. Lynch and Calvin O’Boyle all enjoyed success last year for the Patriots and all will have a chance to do so this season as well. Matthews has a long list of accolades. Perhaps the best of all is winning the 2010 PIAA State Championship as a junior. He returns for his senior year and should be the area’s top player. He will also look to go 4-for-4 at the annual Wyoming Valley Conference Tom Tryba Preseason Tournament. With his Tryba win last season, he became the only player in the tournament’s history to win the title three times. In addition to Matthews, the Patriots also return another very good player Tracy.

He was a big part of the Patriots success last year and has played all summer to prepare for this season. He also competed in last year’s District II Championship tournament, finishing in the top half by carding an 88. Not far behind Tracy in the final results of last year’s district tournament was Carroll. He finished just one stroke behind Tracy with an 89. Rounding out the top five for Pittston Area is Lynch and O’Boyle. Both players are experienced in Wyoming Valley Conference matches and should contribute heavily this season. Although the top five is all but set in stone, the Patriots still need a sixth golfer to start in their matches. The competition for the sixth spot consists of Matt Pierantoni (junior) and Todd Mitchell (senior). Another player Benfante believes has a chance to contribute this season is newcomer Angelo Guariglia. The Patriots will be a heavy favorite in their division. However, the league is a different story. They will go to battle with Holy Redeemer for the league title. Benfante admits it won’t be an easy task. “The league favorite I believe is Holy

Williams excited about second season at WA Warriors return improving golfers, including top four players By Josh Horton

Dispatch Correspondent

There is one thing in particular which has Wyoming Area golf coach Gordon Williams very excited about the upcoming season. The second year Warriors head coach only lost one key part of last year’s team, Stan Yanik. Other then losing his No. 5 golfer from last year, Williams returns many players who have had experience starting on the links in the Wyoming Valley Conference. Among the returning starters is senior Nick Rydzewski. He will be Wyoming Area’s No. 1 golfer this year and will be a big part of any success Wyoming Area will enjoy this season. Rydzewski was the only Warrior to make an appearance in last season’s District II Individual Boys Championship tournament. He carded a 96 as a junior and should get a chance to compete in the post-season tournament this year as well. “Nick is our No. 1 right now,”

Williams said. “He keeps getting better and will be a big part of our team this season.” He may have been the only male member on his team to make the District II Championship Tournament, however, he was not the only from his team to earn the right to compete. Courtney Melvin burst onto the Wyoming Valley Conference scene and was a huge part of last year’s Wyoming Area squad. She was one of two girls from the Wyoming Valley Conference to compete in the District II Championships. Melvin finished 11th overall in the tournament as a freshman. Williams marveled about how much she has improved over the summer and expects her to play a huge role on this year’s team as a sophomore. “Courtney improved by about five strokes over the summer and if she keeps improving by five strokes every year, she will be un-

Playing in the Lackawanna Scholastic Golf League’s Southern Division proves to be a challenge year-in and year-out for the Old Forge Blue Devils. And this year will be no different. Despite a disappointing 2010 campaign, sixth-year head coach Joe DeStefano expects his Blue Devils to compete for one of the final three playoff spots that the division is awarded come the post-season. Last year, Old Forge (4-7) missed out on the league playoffs, finishing one match behind arch-rival Riverside, who they beat during the opening week of play, for the

final spot in the post-season. The Blue Devils also lost five of its top six players from that squad. So what makes DeStefano so optimistic about 2011? The return of senior Corey Palma. Palma finished with a team best 8-1-1 individual record as a junior, and also added five wins in better-ball competition. He also finished sixth in the season-opening Jackman Tournament in 2010. “Corey should be one of the top players in the league this year,” said DeStefano. “He will be our No. 1 player. There won’t be a match that I will hesitate to put him in the See PALMA, Page 49

MEN’S SOFTBALL

Two-time defending champ OFSC back in title series By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

The Moosic-Old Forge Men’s Softball League playoffs got into full swing this week with two semifinal matchups that featured the two-time defending champion Old Forge Social Club versus the red-hot GI’s Bar, and Café Rinaldi against the top-seeded Moosic Diner. On Thursday, Moosic Diner evened its series with Rinaldi’s with a 19-9 win to force a third and deciding game on Monday at 6 p.m. The winner of that game will take on OFSC in the title series beginning on Tuesday at 5:45 p.m. The Social Club swept GI’s Bar in the other semi with a 19-4 win in Game 2 of its series. The semifinals started Wednesday night at Pagnotti Park in Old Forge with OFSC and Café Rinaldi picking up opening game victories. OFSC was the second seed entering the playoffs and took a 1-0 lead on GI’s with a 17-5 win, while fifthseeded Rinaldi’s beat Moosic Diner, 13-2. Moosic Diner and Social Club finished the regular-season tied with 21-7 records but The Diner earned the top-seed on a tiebreaker. GI’s Bar (18-10) was third, while Caramanno’s Deli (17-11) was fourth. Milano’s Steak House (10-18) finished sixth, Old Forge Glass (8-20) was seventh, and Jigsaw Johnny (1-27) was eighth. In the opening round of the playoffs, Old Forge Glass upset Milano’s in the play-in series, 2-0. OF Glass was ousted however in the next round by third-seeded GI’s Bar by the scores of 15-10, and 25-21. Café Rinaldi battled back from a 23-8 loss in the opening game to upset Caramanno’s to take Games 2 & 3, 19-13, and 17-15 to stay alive.

der par by the time she is a senior,” Williams said with a chuckle. Zack Mulhern returns for his junior season and will take the helm at the number two spot playing matches along side Rydzewski. Conner Mangan will also play a bigger role this season than he did last season. “Conner really stepped it up this year,” Williams said. “He played a lot over the summer and should do good things for us this season.” Among other players Williams expects to see time in the starting lineup are, Jake Wysocki (junior), Collin Herron (sophomore) and Mike Carey (junior) Rounding out the Wyoming Area roster is, Evan Ryder (junior), Jude PolitMoran (freshman), Mike Kolessar (freshman), Sal Polit-Moran (junior), and Samantha Williams (freshman). As for matches Williams is looking forward too? There is no surprise when he mentioned the Cross-River Rivalry between the Warriors and the Pittston Area Patriots, and his team’s opening match against Coughlin on Monday. “Obviously they (Pittston) have a team

filled with great players,” Williams said. “With the exception of them (Pittston) and Redeemer, I think we can do very well against the rest of our schedule.” After a disappointing 2-8 record last year, Williams believes his team is much improved. So improved, he has set a goal of seven wins for his squad this season. “In terms of record, I’d like to have seven wins. That’s a pretty steep goal,” Williams said. “Not undefeated, but with a little luck on our side seven wins is doable.”

No. 1 spot. He could pretty much beat anyone in the league.” Palma, however, is the lone returning starter from last year’s team. Senior Adam Barsigian started two matches early last season, but gave way to an upperclassman as the senior progressed. “Corey is going to have to be a leader this year,” said DeStefano. “We only have one other guy with starting experience back. But there are quite a few seniors that I expect their experience in other sports to come through for us on the golf course this year.” That group of seniors includes Barsigian, Ian Nemetz and J Argonish – all three sport athletes for the Blue Devils. Senior Nick Grevera is also in the starting mix along with juniors Tyler Cavalari and Jared Heckman, and freshman AJ Cantarella. “The seniors are in the driver’s seat,” said DeStefano when it comes to filling out his six-man lineup. “But we will see how they do this week. We have quite a few juniors and sophomores that could push them to start,

and freshman AJ Cantarella has a nice swing. “The division is hard with the normal top teams – Scranton Prep, Abington Heights and North Pocono. But we should compete for one of the remaining playoff spots.” The Blue Devils open their season tomorrow against Scranton at Summit Hills at 1 p.m. before taking on arch-rival Riverside on Wednesday at Pine Hills at 10:30 a.m.

Kids are the future of the Outdoors There’s no doubt that our strong heritage and tradition of hunting and fishing is still alive in our area. It is however easy to see how modern day life styles have changed things a bit, actually quite a bit. We used to wait for the weekend to go hunting and fishing. The thought of a day on the river or in the field with my father and grandfather would keep me up at night during the week. When Saturday finally arrived I was up before the alarm clock and waiting for the outdoor adventure to begin. We didn’t have to talk about it. Saturdays were meant for outdoor recreation and that was that. Many adults in the valley worked hard through the week and found piece of mind on the weekend by jumping in a boat for a fishing trip or grabbing their shotguns or rifles for a hunt. I do remember missing a few days of hunting because of football but it didn’t keep me from looking forward to the next adventure. I know that times have changed and there are many new challenges and opportunities facing today’s families. I just beg you to not forget your roots and try to make the hunting and fishing sports a part of your life. Most of it starts at home with children. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Pennsylvania Game Commission are working hard to entice new sportsmen and promote hunting and fishing to today’s youth. The Fish and Boat Commission is working hard at recruiting new anglers. They have a program called Fish-for-Free Days and the response has been overwhelm-

OUTDOORS WITH JAKE

ing. They are continuing the Labor Day and Memorial day Fishfor Free Days and they have expanded the outreach to regionalized Family Fishing Festival days. There are Family Fishing Festivals scheduled at six locations across the state on Labor Day Weekend and one of them will take place right here in our backyard. On Saturday, September 3, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will host a Family Fishing Festival at Frances Slocum State Park. The Commission says the Family Fishing Festivals are free educational events designed for families with little or no fishing experience; Participating families will learn basic fishing skills and have an opportunity to practice those skills while fishing together during the program. The festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Frances Slocum. The usual fishing license requirement is waived for registered festival participa-

nts 16 and older. The program is open to all ages. However, it is designed for children ages 5 and older. All equipment, bait and tackle will be provided. Space is limited at the event, so pre-registration is required. Deadline for registration is Aug. 31, and there will be no registration taken the day of the event. You can register online at www.fishandboat.com/fishforfree.htm or you can contact the Northeast Office of the Fish Commission in Sweet Valley by calling 570-477-2206. This is an amazing opportunity to get family and children involved in fishing. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of it. The Commission also has another Fish-for Free Day the same weekend. On Labor Day, Monday Sept. 5, it’s the Commission’s second Fish-for-Free Day for 2011. This day allows anyone (resident or non-resident) to legally fish with no fishing license required on all Pennsylvania’s waterways on this day. All other

fishing regulations still apply. Early hunting seasons

The early goose and dove seasons open on Thursday, September 1. Dove hunters will have the opportunity to participate in a triple-split season. During the first season, Sept. 1-Oct. 1, hunting will start at noon and close at sunset daily. The second and third splits will be Oct. 29-Nov. 26, and Dec. 26-Jan 4, with hunting hours a half-hour before sunrise until sunset. In all three seasons, the daily bag limit will be 15, and the possession limit will be 30. The early statewide season for resident Canada geese will open Sept. 1, and continue through Sept. 24. The early season daily bag limit is 8 Canada geese and possession limit of 16.The Game Commission is trying to manage the resident goose population through this early season and liberal bag limits. They believe that goose hunting opportunities,

along with control programs being implemented by many municipalities and public and private landowners, appear to be stabilizing the growth of the state’s resident Canada goose population. Hunting is considered a major management tool. The push to get our youth involved in hunting is a major concern to many of us and the commission is trying to open every path they can. For example, young Pennsylvania hunters will be provided with an extra day of waterfowl hunting on Saturday, Sept. 17 and 24. The Youth Waterfowl Days, which previously were limited to one day, are open to those 12- to 15-years-old who hold a junior hunting license. To participate, a youngster must be accompanied by an adult, who may assist the youth in calling, duck identification and other aspects of the hunt. During these special two day-long hunts, youth can harvest ducks, mergansers, coots and moorhens. In addition, because the Youth Waterfowl Days and the early Canada goose season overlap this year, youth and the adults accompanying them may harvest Canada geese. Remember that every migratory game bird hunter, including doves and woodcock hunters, are required to obtain and carry a Pennsylvania migratory game bird license ($3.70 for residents, $6.70 for non-residents), as well as a general hunting, combination or lifetime license. All waterfowl hunters age 16 and older also must possess a federal migratory game bird and conservation (duck) stamp.

Devils to their first-ever District 2 Class 1A championship as an explosive hitter. She moved behind the plate as a sophomore and was rewarded with an honorable mention selection on the PSCA team in 2009 after Old Forge played for the PIAA State Championship A few position changes during the years that followed due to injuries to her knee and throwing shoulder didn’t affect Alsalahat at the plate as remained one of the most feared hitters in all of District 2. Her career stats saw her hit .355 with 60 RBI and 10 home runs in over 100 games for Old Forge. As a senior, Alsalahat batted .440 with 15 RBI and four homers. She also had a hit in 20 of Old Forge’s 24 games in 2011. The Blue Devils went 74-30 during Alsalahat’s four seasons. “(The honor) shows how well out program has done and

is doing,” said Alsalahat, who plans on trying out for the nationally ranked University of Florida squad later this month. “We have gained a lot of respect for playing in a very competitive division with all bigger schools. It’s also a tribute to the great coaching staff we have.” Alsalahat was the only District 2 player selected to the Class 1A team, and was one of just two third baseman selected – the other being Sto-Rox senior Vicky Vuljanic. Other notable selections to the PIAA Class 1A All-State squad include Anna Heggenstaller, Salene Shaffer, and AJ Seigel of Greenwood; and Brianna Jennings, Gabby Edsel and Bobbi Jo Loyack of Wyalusing. Other Lackawanna League selections include, Valley View’s Gina Chieffalo and Liz Aniska, Abington Heights’s Katie Stevens, and Elk Lake’s Brooke Darling and Gabby Baltzley.

He said it’s an honor to be in rare company. “I think there area only four or five who’ve gotten it. I was very honored. I do a lot and give back.” George’s best memory is from the Thanksgiving Day football game versus Forty Fort in his senior season in 1949 when he was the captain of the West Pittston Rams. “I intercepted two passes and was tackled both times by Jackie Collins from Forty Fort. He intercepted two passes and I tackled him both times.” Miller is the Tax Collector for West Pittston Borough and Wyoming Area School District. He and his wife Lois live in West Pittston.

After School Care Program

Holy Rosary School will offer an After School Care Program (ASCP) for the 2011-2012 school year. Students enrolled in grades pre-k four year old to eighth grade are eligible. This program will reflect the philosophy and mission of Holy Rosary School, and is designed to meet the needs of our students and parents. The ASCP will provide a safe, nurturing environment that is a natural extension of our school community. On regular school days, the program will operate from the time school is dismissed at 2:30 until 5:30 p.m. The After School Care Program will not be available on early dismissal days or when school is closed, and will begin on Tuesday, September 6. All families who may participate in the After School Care Program must complete a registration form, which was included in the second mailing sent home last week. Cafeteria Information

In our commitment to provide a healthy, quality lunch at Holy Rosary, we have decided to take our best practices from past years and incorporate them in the 2010 -2011 school year. Mrs. Cathy Ostrowski will be the cafeteria manager for our lunch program. She will continue to prepare our “home-cooked” lunches. Mrs. Candice Lee will continue as Food Service Direc-

tor. School lunch will begin on Monday, August 29 and will also be served on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the first week. Please note that there will be no lunch served on Friday, September 2 due to the Return to School Mass and the 11:00 a.m. early dismissal.

Wyoming Area holds seventh annual Career Day in May Wyoming Area Guidance Department presented the seventh annual Career Day on Thursday, May 19, 2011. The student council members helped in introducing the three motivational speakers and also helped in a meet and greet to speakers as they arrived for the day. Student Council led the juniors in setting the tone for a highly successful day. The juniors asked some challenging questions of the many speakers. Mr. Ray Bernardi, superintendent, welcomed the juniors to the day. Ed Ackerman, editor of the Sunday Dispatch and journalism instructor at LCCC was the keynote speaker. He set the tone for a very informative, interesting and highly successful day. He was introduced by Nick Mazzone, president of the junior class. From 11 to noon during lunch the juniors were able to participate in a mini college fair. College representatives from the seven local colleges were on hand to speak with any junior interested in beginning the college planning process. The reps were inundated with students looking for information asking ques-

tions, etc. Twenty two recent Wyoming Area graduates returned to speak with small groups of juniors about their experiences after graduating. Many are enrolled in college, one had military experience before college and many had changed their majors and some had changed colleges. Several had worked at some point after graduation. The afternoon program included Father Paul McDonnell who was introduced by Donanna Williams and Joseph DeLucca who was introduced by Kendra Radle, a recent JL graduate. Both of these speakers gave a motivational talk followed by Attorney Michael Ferrence, a practicing attorney, who has spoken the past several years and is invited back by popular demand. Angelo Coco, junior introduced him. Attorney Ferrence has spoken at the last several Career Day programs and continues to impress the students with his story. The morning offered each junior four half-hour career sessions with over 38 career speak-
