SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2011

The rest of the story Last week I whined a little in this space about how I was left behind minding the store as the rest of the Dispatch staff dashed out to cover the Agnes flood on June 23, 1972. Well, there’s more to the story. A couple of weeks later we got word at the paper early Saturday morning that President Nixon was coming to the area to view the flood damage. This time I was included in the news coverage, a bit of an afterthought to be honest, but still part of the action. This was a mere nine years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, so the White House was not about to release the President’s itinerary. We had to figure that out for ourselves. All we knew was that he’d be landing at the Avoca airport and touring Wyoming Valley. Kenny Feeney, the chief photographer, was sent to the airport naturally. Everyone else got a similar, specific assign-

ment. Then there was me. “Eddie,” the boss said, “I heard he might swing by Wilkes College. You went to Wilkes and you know the campus. Take this camera and see what you can do.” It was kind of the equivalent of a game of street football when after meticulously planning a play, the quarterback looks at you and says, “You go long,” but still I was thrilled. Besides, it wasn’t just any camera the boss had handed me, it was a German-made Leicaflex SLR (single lens reflex), the best camera the paper owned. I guess he figured that, at 22, I needed all the help I could get. Nixon wasn’t at Wilkes. No one was at Wilkes. Except for this one guy, a custodian who said he’d heard the President was heading toward a temporary trailer park that had been

set up in Edwardsville. And, son-of-a-gun, the guy was right. Throngs of people surrounded Nixon as he exited one of the trailers and the best I could do was hold the camera high over my head and fire away, hoping I was getting something. This was a heck of a camera in my outstretched hands but it was a far cry from today’s digital technology. It didn’t even have an automatic rewind. And while the rolls of film had 36 exposures, they went pretty fast in a situation like this. Still, I left the scene confident I had done my job. Driving back to the Dispatch on Wyoming Avenue in Kingston in my ’69 red VW bug I was halted with the rest of the traffic as the Nixon entourage – his black limo and several escort vehicles – pulled onto the avenue from a side street sever-

al blocks ahead. We started rolling again but as we got into Forty Fort I could see Nixon’s car pulling over to the curb. Across the street from where it came to a stop a bridal party was exiting a church and I said to myself, “Oh my God, he’s going to kiss the bride.” I screeched to a stop, grabbed the Leica and started running. Again there was a crowd between me and where the President of the United States did indeed kiss the bride, so again I just stood on my toes, held the camera high as I could and prayed. The funny thing was I actually knew the bride and groom. Not only that, but I had been invited to this wedding, declining only because I had to work. Turned out I got a dandy photo of the bride, the former Kathy Pickering – then, and still Mrs. Dan Conte – and groom Danny, whom we all

called “Giz,” with the President and it ran on the front page of the Dispatch, and later in several flood publications. My shots from the trailer park turned out pretty good, too. One of them hangs on the wall today at Cooper’s Seafood Restaurant in Pittston. I’m tempted at this point to borrow a line from Paul Harvey and say, “And that, my friends, is the rest of the story.” But it’s not. A few years later I was talking about all of this with my buddy “Moe” Mullarkey who was Giz Conte’s best man that day in 1972. Moe, of course, remembered it well. “Yeah,” he said, “I’ll never forget it, but at first I thought it was a joke. I walked out of the church and said, ‘Hey, a guy in a Nixon mask.’ I came this close to pulling his nose.” What a picture that would have been.

She’ll never forget the day the music died WP woman’s two-month-old baby grand piano reduced to rubble By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Charlene Maroni's prized baby grand piano above, and how it looks today on a curb outside her home in West Pittston, right.

from where a wine glass sat undisturbed on a high shelf. A large planter from her yard was found in a tree by the armory about a block away. Charlene and John are determined to restore their home. “I love this house,” she said. “And it’s going to be nice again. We have these great guys from Rainbow to clean and it and great guys will come in and put it back together again.” Rainbow is a company which specializes in flood clean up. As many residents in affected areas have been, Charlene is moved by the help. The Red Cross, the Salvation Army and church groups come around regularly with cleaning supplies,

food and water. The West Pittston Methodist Church runs a “sandwich wagon.” Lighter moments offer a bit of comic relief. John said when he came back to the house after the water went down he saw a dumpster in his neighbor’s yard and wondered how he had gotten one delivered so fast, before realizing the river had “delivered” the dumpster from parts unknown. A ring of kielbasa stuck in a tree near the armory was also a source of humor in the neighborhood. Residents took photos of it and laughingly speculated whether it was hot, smoked or sopressata.

Proving Mother Nature has a sense of humor, this kielbasa was spotted in a tree near a flooded West Pittston home.

John Maroni points to the high water mark on a tree near his home.

For 30 years Charlene Maroni wanted a baby grand piano, but she didn’t have a house big enough. Eleven months ago she and her husband John took the first baby grand step: they bought a house with enough room for a piano. It’s located at the corner of Philadelphia and Susquehanna avenues in West Pittston. Two months ago they paid $3,000 for Charlene’s dream baby grand. Today it sits under a pile of flood rubble on Susquehanna Avenue in front of their house. The Maronis neighborhood between the Water Street Bridge and the armory was one the most devastated by the flood of Sept. 8 and 9. The water was eight and one-half feet deep in the Maronis parlor where the piano sat. Every window was broken on the first floor. As the water rose, Wyoming Area football coach Randy Spencer, who lives up the block on Philadelphia Avenue, offered to get some muscle from his coaches and players to move the piano. But Charlene said it was too dangerous, as by then the rapidly rising water was at the front door. Charlene and John did manage to put the piano legs in garbage cans figuring that would save it from two feet of water. Standing in the gutted first floor of her home on Wednesday afternoon Charlene said, “Even though it looks like a disaster and is a disaster I feel fortunate with what we have. You know, I’m grateful I still have a house standing, a lot of people don’t. And I’m grateful that we have flood insurance, a lot of people don’t and I feel bad for them.” Charlene’s business, Char and Company, a salon and spa on Wyoming Avenue in West Pittston, got a foot of water. Charlene said the water did unexplainable things in her house. In one room a dining room table which can seat 12 was thrown against a wall just feet

WA coach reluctantly accepts players’ help By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Wyoming Area football coach Randy Spencer and his girlfriend Tracy Roche got four-feet of water at their home at 26 Philadelphia Avenue. Randy said the first floor will be gutted and he’s worried about the hardwood floors which are buckled in a couple spots. They may have to come up. Tracy said that without flood insurance they will need help. “We’re hoping to get the house back in shape as it was, but I guess that depends on the government. We didn’t lose anything that’s not replaceable, but it’s still hard.” The house is above the 1972 water line and they don’t have flood insurance. They do have a lot of friends, though, and they showed up to help on Wednesday. Assistants from his staff – Rich Musinski, Eric Speece and Joe Pizano – and some of the Warrior players helped bucket mud out, demo the basement and pressure wash the walls. As he took a break to eat wimpies dropped off by the Methodist Church and free pizza delivered from Marianacci’s, Randy

New York’s top court, the Court of Appeals, has rejected a criminal escape charge for a juvenile who ran away from the Brooklyn detention facility. The court ruled that the state Family Court Act does not equate detention with confinement and the “nonsecure” facility with unlocked doors is designed to rehabilitate, not punish. *** A new adult-entertainment sign and billboard law in Michigan bars photos of scantily clad people. Nothing suggestive is allowed. The signs and billboards can only feature words, numbers and or a logo. *** In a 5-4 ruling, the U. S. Supreme Court has overturned a jury verdict and lowercourt rulings awarding $14 million to John Thompson, who had sued then-New Orleans District Attorney Harry Connick Sr. because prosecutors hid a blood test that would have proved his innocence in a murder case. The court majority says the mistakes in the case did not amount to ‘deliberate indifference.’ Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg emphasized her disapproval by reading her dissent in the courtroom, saying the court was shielding a city and its prosecutors from “flagrant” misconduct that nearly cost an innocent man his life. *** A new law in Iowa allows gas stations and convenience stores to sell hard liquor, in addition to beer and wine.

time donated by Sabatini’s. School was cancelled for the week but practice went on as usual at 3 p.m. though players didn’t have to practice when they were needed at home. “Everybody checked in at practice to see if anybody else needs help. Dan Resciniti of our parents’ organization did a great job directing requests. The kids have been great, we’re really proud of them,” Spencer said. The players have been helping since the water began to rise, when they worked filling and delivering sandbags from the borough building. Spencer said it’s odd to think of football practice as a welcome distraction, but it’s been so this week. “It’s a nice break. It’s nice to focus and football for a while and get your mind of all the destruction and the clean up.” Spencer and Roche have been staying at her mother’s house in Taylor, as is their confused 13year-old chocolate Labrador retriever, Jasmine. “She doesn’t like us to leave her there all day, but she’s getting used to it.” Tracy said.

The social quarter of Moose Lodge 1207 at 425 Exeter Avenue in West Pittston is underground, but thanks to an all-night vigil by members it wasn’t underwater during the flood. The basement of the house next door to the Lodge took seven feet of water. The Lodge quarter might have been flooded, too, but sandbags, pumps and a generator saved it.

Administrator Bernie Cassetori said after members sandbagged the stairwells, ground water seeped in. An electric sump pump handled that for a while, but when the power was shut off they brought in a generator to get the pump running again. While the river didn’t get to the quarters – it stopped out front – groundwater came in faster by the minute overwhelming

the sump pump. Cassetori was called at home and came with another pump. That wasn’t enough either. So he called Joe Holly, who was at that time running a front-end loader building a temporary earthen dike in Exeter. Holly said there was a larger pump behind his business on Tunkhannock Avenue. Cassetori went for it, but be-

fore he could haul it back to the Lodge he had to convince to a couple of State Troopers he wasn’t a looter. With the larger pump the water in the quarters was limited to eight inches and is open. This past week Moose members have been cooking hotdogs and hamburgers outside for victims and clean-up workers. On Friday they served coffee and

donuts in the morning. They also delivered 50 spaghetti dinners. Cassetori said 34 members’ homes were flooded. They have a standing offer to come in for a free dinner anytime the kitchen is open. Eight took advantage of the offer on Wednesday. -Jack Smiles

Musical Instruments Survive

With homes flooded in some cases to the second floor there is a tendency in other cases to say the flooding was was “only” in the basement. Of course for most folks that means heating and electrical systems knocked out For some it means destroyed “man caves” or game rooms. For some, like Jerry Haynes on Linden Street in West Pittston a flooded basement means unemployment. Haynes had a workshop in his

cellar where he restored musical instruments, mainly brass horns, for school and commercial bands and individuals. He got almost all of the instruments in his basement out before the water flooded, but the machines he uses for fixing dents and polishing brass were under water, including a lathe and a $2,000 burnishing machine for fixing dents. “The only thing I lost was some cases and some broken horns,” Jerry said. “I did work for a guy who did a lot of brass work for schools in the outlying area, Mount North Pocono, so I’m going to work out of his shop.” But Haynes, who is 73, said

he’ll be back. “I’m getting up there, but I think I’m going to get a small business loan and get back into business and go out in style. I think that’s what I’m going to do” Haynes and his wife Ruth said, like a lot of folks have said, they are warmed by the help and support. A church group from Forty Fort stopped into help. This week some firemen are scheduled to help clean up the basement workshop. - Jack Smiles Donations Sought

Donations for FloodingIn light of the recent flooding of the Greater Pittston Area, the Knights of Columbus, Pittston Council 372 is sponsoring a drive to aide local residents. The Knights are seeking donations of non-perishable food items: Cleaning items, pet supplies, and/or monetary support. Donations may be dropped off at the council home, 55 S. Main St. Pittston from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Louis GalliDaveski, a member of Boy Scout Troop 485 St. Maria Goretti Church in Laflin has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Louis was informed of his accomplishment back on October 20, 2010 by the Northeastern PA Council Eagle Board of Review. Louis has been an active member in scouting since 2003 when he joined Pack 485 as a Cub Scout. In May of 2005 he had earned the Arrow of Light award. The Arrow of Light award qualifies a cub scout who is ten years of age to cross over to a troop before his eleventh birthday. Louis took part in a “Cross Over” ceremony with Troop 485 directly after receiving this award. Since May of 2005, Louis has been active in numerous scouting activities which enabled him to earn twenty-three badges. He has held various positions of leadership within the troop and has used these skills while attending scouting activities and six summer camps with his troop at Goose Pond Reservation. One of the most memorable outings for Louis was when his troop visited the Gettysburg Battlefields on two separate occasions to complete requirements to earn the Gettysburg National Historic Trails badge. Louis has continued his connection with cub scouting by working at Camp Acahela’s Cub Scout camp during the summers of 2009 and 2010 and by volunteering in the camp’s Parent and Pal weekend on several occasions. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, Lowwapaneu Lodge 191. Louis’s Eagle Scout project involved organizing a group of workers made up of scouts, friends and family members to clean and paint a metal foot bridge over Gardner Creek which connects Creekside Park and the athletic fields in Laflin. Louis solicited funds and donations from community members, parishioners of St Maria Goretti Church and local businesses to complete the project

Louis was honored at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor held at St Maria Goretti Banquet Hall on February 28, 2011. In attendance were scouts from Troop 485, present and past scout leaders, community leaders and Louis’s family and friends. Louis would like to thank all of his scout leaders, his fellow scouts, friends and family who helped him along the trail to Eagle Scout. He would like to thank his Scout Master, Mr. Vince Riggi for his direction and guidance over the past seven years. Louis would also like to acknowledge Mayor Dorothy Yazurlo and Councilman Raymond Pendolphi for their sponsorship of his Eagle Project as well as Borough Manager, Barbara Fairchild for her help in organizing the project. Louis would especially like to thank his younger sister Holly for her support. Louis is a senior at Scranton Preparatory School this year and is the son of Luann Galli-Daveski and Ed Daveski of Laflin.

Rising river leaves Rt. 92 home ‘on an island’ Richard and Kim Hiedacavage lived on island for the better part of three days. No, they weren’t on vacation, they were stranded in their home on Rt. 92 when the river came up. “Basically we were in the river,” Kim said. Though water didn’t get into their first floor, it did fill their12foot deep basement and surround their house on three sides. Out front on Rt. 92 there was a U-shaped dry area and a patch of green in the front yard which came in handy for their three

dogs. But there was nowhere to go in either direction. Behind their house the river was 12-feet deep. It was up to third highest of the 16 steps down from their deck down to their backyard lawn. “You should have heard the roar,” Kim said. “I was getting paranoid that a propane tank or something was going to come down and hit the house.” Amazingly, though their electrical box was underwater, the power stayed on. It has since

been turned off by PPL. Richard took his boat out, maneuvered around the Appletree Restaurant, where most of the first floor was under water, and reached high ground where he was met by their niece, Jennifer Gadomski, and her boyfriend Cody who were waiting with food supplies. “They walked through a creek

Kim and Richard have been in the house a year and one-half. Before that they were in a trailer in Riverview Park. That trailer had water to the roof.

chest deep and climbed down a mountain to meet him,” Kim said of her niece and her boyfriend. Kim estimated that there were five families and about 20 people on their little island. When the water receded it was revealed that part of the deck was ripped off, two sheds were carried away and trees were flattened to the ground.

OUR OPINION

Pulling together

When the people-helping-people scenario following the Flood of 1972 resulted in this area being dubbed – albeit self-proclaimed – The Valley with a Heart, folks in Greater Pittston soon began calling their hometown region “The Heart of the Valley with a Heart.” Last week they proved it. Sections of Greater Pittston – West Pittston, Duryea, and Exeter boroughs and Exeter and Jenkins Townships among them – were hit hard by The Flood of 2011 and face a clean-up effort more daunting than after Agnes. From the look of things last week, they are up to the task. Once the water receded, residents in the flooded areas rolled up their sleeves and got right to work and immediately discovered they were not alone. Help, in the form of food, clothing, supplies, and manpower, came pouring in from all directions and continues to do so. The Dispatch has been receiving tales of good deeds almost faster than we can publish them. Some of those are mentioned in an article which begins on page six. Others will be published in future issues so, please, keep calling and sending them in. One we heard late Friday night is that chef Pat Greenfield, whose own restaurant, the legendary Grico’s in Exeter, was recently destroyed by fire, was catering a wedding last Saturday in a location spared by the flood. She prepared extra food and brought it to a flood evacuation center. We can only imagine the reaction of those huddled in a gymnasium when they found themselves dining on gourmet food. In West Pittston, Ron Gitkos, owner of the Valero gas station at the corner of Wyoming and Montgomery Avenues, just feet from where the flood waters stopped, displayed the sign depicted above. Hard to tell what flood victims would appreciate most. Maybe the shoulders.

PICTURE EDITORIAL

Signs of the times in West Pittston

Several flooded out residents of West Pittston took a moment to express their thoughts with signs on their properties. Above is a sign hanging on the front of the law offices of Atty. Michael Cefalo. Not only was Cefalo’s firm, which occupies this Century home and the building next to it on Wyoming Avenue, flooded, but also his home on Susquehanna Avenue. The message reflects the sentiments of many: Our town will be back. The sign in the photo at right expresses a different sentiment, although perhaps tongue in cheek. It says this Montgomery Avenue dwelling is For Sale. As Is.

YOUR OPINION

Photographer John Rygiel recalls the Flood of 1972 Thank you for the great coverage of the Flood of 2011. There were many, many hours of reporting from dangerous places. I was co-publisher of the book “The Great Flood of1972.” I am now 82 and could not get around like I did in 1972. I walked many miles then since all the streets were impassible. Later, I threw the pants and shoes away and sold the mud-covered Volkswagen bus. In reading and listening to the volume of water that came down from the sky and river last week I thought you would be interested in this page from the beginning of our book. I don’t know how the numbers compare to this week. On June15, the clouds floated aimlessly in the sky off the Yucatan coast. There was a slight movement of air, usually called a breeze. Conditions were right and the wind grew in intensity and velocity until it became tropical storm Agnes. Agnes was revealed by satellite to have an unusually large circulation.

Agnes began to move, and as she moved, she grew - not as a beautiful child maturing into lovely womanhood, but unfolding as an ugly, ruthless and destructive force. With the wind came the rain. By the time she had finished her evil task Agnes would spew forth a total of 28 trillion, 100 billion gallons of water. Fourteen trillion gallons of this water fell on the states of New York and Pennsylvania – over the Susquehanna watershed – as Wyoming Valley was soon to realize. Together this would make a solid cube of water twenty-five miles high, wide and long. When the good earth could drink no more, the water ran into the creeks. The creeks swelled and the water blasted its way into the river. And when the river could hold no more … John Rygiel Wyoming

Troubled bridge over water? less absorption and more runoff. In 1972 when the levee failed, 10-15 square miles of the Valley that was dry this time was under 5 to 15 feet of water. I’m no hydrologist, but wouldn’t that have something to do with the higher water level in the non-levee areas this time around? That makes tons of sense and almost everybody accepts that. But, is everybody right? Certainly the levees have an effect up and downstream, but is the levee as a cause of flooding in West Pittston and Duryea overstated? There’s a theory that the levee keeps the river moving downstream fast and that’s good for the upstream areas. Under the theory in ’72 when the levee failed in Wilkes-Barre and Kingston the river went from 1/4 mile wide to three or four miles wide in some areas. As the river widened, its downstream flow slowed considerably. With the river then going much more slowly past West Pittston it spread into low lying areas there, maybe not as much as if the dikes had held, but maybe only a foot or so lower. Like I said, I’m no hydrologist, but it makes some sense. There are plenty of prevention theories out there. Here’s one to consider – storm drains. Let’s say there were several huge storm drains with enormous outflow pipes at the lowest points in West Pittston. Granted the water those pipes drained would go back into the river but the exchange might help keep the water level down. Building more and higher dikes is another remedy, but critics say dikes can be topped or broken down as almost happened in Forty Fort this time around. Some people say dredge the river, remove the islands and dig out spillways or giant catch basins in places like the Wyoming and Exeter flats. But how deep can the river be dredged? There’s bedrock on the river bottom. Politicians say they want “to make sure this never happens again.” There is no making sure. No one can predict what Mother Nature will do in the future. It used to be that Agnes was the high standard because it was the highest crest in recorded history. We all went around saying it will never get that high again. We were all wrong. Now we have a new high standard two feet higher than Agnes. It may not be likely we will again get the perfect storm of weather we had – rain from two tropical storms sandwiched around heavy rain storms from the west all falling on saturated ground. On the other hand, it could happen again and crest at 50 feet. Who knows? Jack Smiles is Associate Editor of the Sunday Dispatch.

Do and don’ts of recovering from flood West Pittston certainly looks like a war zone, Mother Nature against mankind’s desire for clean and well furnished homes and businesses. Many of us are still not back to a habitable status. After many hours of work outdoors in our gardens and indoors in our homes and businesses, the fruit of our work has vanished only waiting to be restored. But what about our outdoor gardens, are their fruits and vegetables safe to consume? If anyone’s gardens are showing a rebirth after the flood, it’s best to just look at the produce and not eat it. The Food and Drug Administration recommends that fresh fruits and vegetables that have been inundated by flood waters cannot be adequately cleaned and should be destroyed. Even though many of us believe that washing the produce with clean potable water may reduce the bacteria and viruses on the outside of the produce, it is still important to note that those vegetables and fruits or any editable herbs should not be consumed. Food is only one of the concerns of a home affected by flood waters. Keepsakes items like books, especially cookbooks need special handling also. Cooperative Extensions around the country have many materials available at the click of a computer mouse. Here are recommendations for salvaging cookbooks and other books that may be favorites: If rinsing is necessary, hold the book closed. For partially wet or damp books, stand them on their top or bottom edge with covers opened at a 90-degree angle, and allow them to air-dry. For very wet books, lay them on a flat, clean surface. Insert paper towels or other absorbent materials throughout the book. But don’t insert so much that you stretch the binding. If there are too many books to air-dry in 48 hours, wrap each book in freezer or waxed paper, pack them spine down in sturdy containers, and then freeze them. Visit this web sites for more information on restoration of family keepsakes: http://www.extension.purdue.edu/floodpub/keepsakes.html It is also important during a disaster to take care of you. This is the time to try to get a tetanus shot, rest and eat a well balanced meal, including calcium rich foods like milk and cheese and lots of fruits and vegetables. During this period of time, your brain needs to be nourished as you are making a lot of decisions about clean up. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of your family. Next Week: Apples

Next week we will resume our regular column topics with recipes. Fall is almost upon us, and fresh apples are plentiful. Next week’s column will feature varieties of apples and healthy ways to enjoy them. Mary R.

The new Eighth Street Bridge is not a dam. It’s a bridge. On that Thursday afternoon as the river rose I went to West Pittston and saw the water level was already above the Agnes ’72 level. Then I went to the new Eighth Street Bridge and walked the length of the deck. At this point it was closed to vehicles but folks were walking on it. On the way back to the Wyoming side with my wife, and maybe 100 or so other people, we stopped in the middle, and going back and forth between the up and downriver sides, we watched the river roar under the bridge. It was not hitting the deck. Yeah, there was plenty of debris in it and some of it hit the piers, but most of it bounced back into the flow and went under and on down river. I watched this happen over and over to what looked like porches, decks, sheds, dog coops, 55 gallon drums, tree trunks and branches, and God knows what all. The dam effect was zero and, as I said, the water was already up in West Pittston and Jenkins. Later that day, as it was getting dark, Mike Flynn of the Wyoming Council was escorted to the middle of the bridge. He saw a whirlpool of debris spinning between the old and new bridges, but saw nothing to indicate the bridge was acting like a dam. The water was still roaring under the bridge. The water got as high as the deck only near the entrance on the Jenkins side and long after West Pittston was flooded. The theory that because the old bridge was open water flowed through it doesn’t hold, well, water. The flood of 1972 did not reach the deck of the old bridge and neither did the flood of 2011. Also note that the new bridge piers are much narrower than the old bridge piers. Let’s grant that because half the old bridge is still standing and there is a cofferdam where the second half of the old bridge will fall when it’s demolished, maybe those things, plus whatever effect the new bridge had, backed up some water. But then probably not. I talked to a consulting engineer for PennDOT who said the bridge had no effect and said more water flows under the new bridge than under the old one. Congressman Barletta said he wants a study of the Eighth Street Bridge’s effect on the flooding. How in the world would that work? It’s preposterous. Let’s consider other factors. The crest was two feet higher this time than in ’72. Wouldn’t that have something to do with the water level in the non-levee areas like West Pittston and Duryea and downstream, too? And let’s take into account the saturated ground from one of the wettest springs and summers on record and the amount of development in suburban areas since ’72 where hundreds of acres have been landscaped and paved causing

Holy Rosary moves with a little help from its friends Flood-damaged Duryea school will be open Monday at St. Mary’s, Avoca By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Looking up Stephenson Street from in front of Holy Rosary Grade School in Duryea on Friday morning someone spotted Vice-President Joe Biden’s motorcade and yelled to school principal Kathleen Gilmartin, “Is he coming here?” “I hope not,” she said. It wasn’t that Gilmartin wasn’t grateful that Biden was visiting Duryea to see flood damage first hand. It’s just that Holy Rosary didn’t need a major distraction like a VP visit – not when they had a school to move. As Biden toured the flood devastated Chittenden Street area just three blocks from the school, 100 or so volunteers from among school staff and parents and students from Holy Redeemer and Holy Cross high schools and Misericordia University carried desks, chairs, cabinets, and boxes from the school and loaded them in trucks for a trip to the old St. Mary’s school in Avoca which will turn into Holy Rosary on Monday morning. Holy Rosary didn’t get water on its first floor, but the damage left by six and one-half feet of water in the basement was enough to knock the school out of commission indefinitely. The water knocked out the power and heating plant, but it also destroyed the school’s library, art/music room and cafeteria which were housed in the basement. Gilmartin said when St. Mary’s school closed much of the contents from that library were brought to Holy Rosary. She estimated 5,000 books were destroyed in the combined library. In the cafeteria the refrigerators and freezer were knocked over. Most of the musical instruments from the art/music room were moved up to the gym before the water rose, but the piano was destroyed. Rene Hawley, a teacher aide, coordinated the move. As the students arrived by bus she divided them into two groups “heavy” and “light” lifters. Hearing this Father Elston, the Holy

Redeemer Chaplin, quickly lined up with the light lifters to a roar of laughter. In the school, the books and other items the students had left in their desks were waiting in bags of top of the desks. Light lifters carried these and other smaller items form the classrooms, out a back entrance to waiting pickups trucks, a classroom per truck, while heavy lifters went out the front with the desks and large furniture. Lindsay Rachko, an eighth grader in her last year at Holy Rosary, worked for a while in the bucket brigade style line where desks were handed down from the upper floors. “I was devastated and really shocked,” she said as she passed a student desk of how she felt when she learned the school had been flooded. Asked why he volunteered, Michael LaGrande, a Holy Redeemer student who carried desks, said, “Not to get out of school. Just because I felt bad for the flood victims.” Caren Scavo and her husband Frank, parents of a Holy Rosary fifth grader, were happy to help. Frank, the general manger of LKQ in Old Forge, donated large box trucks for the move. Caren said she was heartened, but not surprised by the number of volunteers. “Wonderful,” she said. “A lot of the young men are so responsible. It’s good for them to see a larger family working as a community. This is a tight community. I’ve been coming to church here since I was 17.” Many of the heavy lifters were football players from Holy Redeemer in Wilkes-Barre and Holy Cross in Dunmore. While they were teammates of a sort on Friday at Holy Rosary, they were opponents the next night when the football teams played each other in Wilkes-Barre. Asked if he saw an irony in that, Redeemer player Tyler Margalski shrugged and said, “Right now we’re working together trying to do something good.” The 200-plus kindergarten through eighth grade Holy Redeemer students will go back to class in Avoca on Monday.

It’s not known when the school will reopen. Same next door at Holy Rosary Church. Its basement was also flooded knocking out the heating system and power and the hall and kitchen. Masses are being celebrated at Sacred Heart of Jesus, also on Stephenson Street but a good distance from the flood area.

Sixty men along with the West Pittston High School Band attended. Officers Walter Smith, fire chief; Caleb Tompkins, first assistant chief; Richard Weinland, foreman; Robert Holtz, assistant foreman; Paul Dietrich second assistant foreman and Adam Searfoss, president, arranged for the band to receive two snare drums in appreciation for their appearance.

1972 – 39 Years Ago Two months after Hurricane Agnes flooded the Wyoming Valley many homeowners and businesses were trying to return to normal. John W. Cohen, a cashier at the West Side Bank, wrote the following letter to West Pittston Borough Council President William J. Miller. “Please express to Borough Council, employees and volunteers, our sincere gratitude for their tireless efforts on behalf of West Side Bank in the aftermath of the disastrous flood that struck our community on June 23, 1972. Ways in which you helped so many through that difficult period will be remembered by everyone.” Wyoming waited to hear about the status of House Bill 12, which involved tax abatement for properties affected by the flood. Duryea considered applying for federal grant for a new municipal building. Dupont sent a letter to the federal government offering tracts of land for trailer sites.

YMCA to honor those who help ‘Change a Life’ Krystina Prince, 13, came to the YMCA two years ago to watch her little brother, Kyle, swim. That is when the magic started. “She came with her mother because I have her brother in the Autism Swim Program. I asked her if she wanted to get in the pool and help me with Kyle. She got in and she was a natural. I knew she could help teach the other autism children,” said Judy Dessoye Rostkowski, aquatics director. “You know when you just know a child is special from the beginning. She is one of those kids. She shows her leadership skills every day.” Today, Krystina is a proud member of the Greater Pittston YMCA Piranha Swim Team. “She is a valuable member of the swim team and a role model to the younger swimmers,” said Rostkowski. “She teaches swimming, she helps out in Child Care and she is a Counselor in Training.” Krystina is also one of four members of the Greater Pittston community the YMCA is honoring at its Annual Dinner and Awards Reception at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on September 26. “We are honoring individuals who make a significant contribution to our community and help change a life,” said Tina

Smiles book signing Saturday at Barnes & Noble Dispatch Associate Editor Jack Smiles didn’t set out to write a trilogy of breaker boy-toBaseball Hall of Fame books, but with the release of his biography of Hughestown’s Bucky Harris, he has accomplished just that. The book "Bucky Harris, a Biography of Baseball’s Boy Wonder" is published by McFarland & Company. Smiles took more than two years writing and researching the book, which is 320 pages and contains 33 photos, appendix, notes, bibliography, and index. On Saturday, that’s this Saturday, September 23, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Smiles will be signing and discussing the book and Barnes & Noble at the Wyoming Valley Mall hub. While Harris is not technically a local native -- he was born in Port Jervis, New Jersey, in 1896 his father moved the family to Hughestown near Pittston when Bucky was three. In the 1920 census Bucky was counted in Hughestown on Rock Street and listed as a weighmaster in a colliery. Just four years later, at the age of 27, Bucky aka "The Boy Wonder" - as the manager and second baseman of the Washington Senators led the

and the Boston Red Sox. As a basketball player Bucky played for the Pittston Pitts in the

Penn State League from1916-20, participated in some fierce battles with Scranton, Wilkes-Barre

and Nanticoke teams and played against Hall of Fame players.

Bucky also managed the 1947 World Champion Yankees in Yogi Berra’s rookie season. The book chronicles Bucky’s transformation from an obscure breaker boy with dirt under his nails to the toast of our nation’s capital where the president of the United States was a guest at his wedding and includes his stint as a professional basketball player, his early days as a baseball player, and his role in the racial integration of both the Senators

sponse has been so overwhelming that they’re running out of space. Parishioners from St. Ignatius in Kingston have provided much of the food that is given. Cecconi said that the food arrives from Kingston hot and ready to eat. Parishioners from St. John the Evangelist in Pittston are also helping in many and various ways.

Lance Locke of Rainbow International out of Nashville, Tennessee, sweeps up in the Maroni home in West Pittston. PHOTO BY JACK SMILES

As a worker for Rainbow International Restoration and Cleaning, Lance Locke has cleaned up a lot of water damage. “But,” he said as he worked in the Maroni home in West Pittston, “not usually of this magnitude.” Locke and the rest of the Rainbow crew came to West Pittston from Coatesville where they were staying while they cleaned up in Delaware. The damage there was mostly limited to basements. The Rainbow crew is based in Nashville Tennessee. While working in West Pittston this week, they are staying at the Yogi Bear Campground near Tunkhannock. “We came up with a couple of fifth wheels,” Locke said. The crew had the Maroni first floor, which was flooded with eight-feet of water, cleared in a couple of days. Homeowner Charlene Maroni was impressed. “They work 12 hours a day and I never see them stop or eat.” Rainbow International has

franchises all over the country and in Germany, England and Ireland. - Jack Smiles

Appreciates kindness of PA football team The families of the late Kenneth A. Davis Sr. would like to acknowledge the Pittston Area football team, coaches and support staff. Our family recently lost our Dad. He was a great PA football fan. All of his children went to Pittston Area and he had a son who played on the team during the 1980s under Coach Barbarie. He now has a grandson playing for Pittston Area under Coach Barrett. During this painful time, it was helpful to know that our son had the support, thoughts and prayers from his team, coaches and staff. Seeing all those young men pay their respects to our father made our mom and family grateful for their kindness. These boys had been at doubles that day and I know they were tired and sore, but they came as a group and gave us their support in our time of need. We are eternally grateful for their

thoughts and prayers. Knowing that our son is playing with such great people is a comfort for our family. I am proud to call myself a PA football fan and Mom. These young men are a treasure that we need to be proud of. The coaches, staff and parents can be proud of these young men. Again thank you to the team, coaches and staff Family of the late Kenneth A. Davis, Sr. Mrs. Joan Davis Denise, Wayne and Josh Blaker Kathy Davis, Joseph Cottone Joan, Amanda and Matthew King and John Wright Diane, Daniel, Hannah, Megan and Noah Coffin Kenneth A.

Applauds Mayor Klush and others for quick response Last week’s storm caused a large trunk of a tree to come down just missing our house. Our road was blocked. Before the end of the day four men, Jason Klush, Sam Valenti, the city manager and a worker cleared everything. It was amazing to see the hands-on mayor with a chainsaw

in his hands. The quickness of response to the situation and the genuine desire to help of all four men still leaves me in appreciation and a feeling of debt. For sure, our city is in good hands. Tony Capitano

YO U R O P I N I O N

Appreciates efforts of WP Police Chief Porfirio I’d like to take this opportunity to applaud an individual whose commitment, dedication, and service to his community, businesses, and residents during last weekend’s catastrophic flooding shouldn’t go unnoticed. While it’s not my intention to trivialize the devastating impact this horrendous act of God had on the Garden Village or any affected municipality or discount the contributions of so many others, I believe it necessary to call out the above-and-beyond efforts put forth by West Pittston Borough Police Chief Paul Porfirio. Simply, the unselfish service and sacrifice repeatedly demonstrated and displayed by Chief Porfirio last weekend and continuing rose far above the record-setting rise of the angry Susquehanna. I’ll tell you I wasn’t directly affected by the flood, but maintained a close and constant watch on the incident as it developed,

not knowing if my home would eventually be included in the local evacuation plan. It was over the course of this multiple-day vigil I spent seemingly endless hours monitoring local television, radio, and public safety radio broadcasts. It was during this time one calm, collected, and authoritative voice clearly assumed control and displayed the confidence necessary to face what had to be one of the toughest challenges in his career – knowing his community depended on him to protect and serve while realizing his own home and family would also soon be inundated by the muddy waters of a raging river. 84-1. Chief Porfirio. Time and time again, over and over, directing decisive leadership, leading by example, promoting organization and order in the most chaotic of times, and accomplishing results while facing multiple obstacles – some

man-made, others because of human nature, and an act of God. Kudos to Chief Porfirio for a job well done! Again, Pittston City’s loss is, no doubts about it, West Pittston’s gain. I’d be remiss if I didn’t also applaud the valiant efforts and energies also put forth by West Pittston Mayor Tony Denisco and the borough’s fire department, police department, public works department, municipal administration, ambulance service, and emergency management team. Thank you for your service to your community! Please know it is very much appreciated! R. Jude Rome Ed. Note: The 84-1 appearing before Chief Porfirio’s name in this letter refers to how the local 9-1-1 emergency call center knows him. The number 84 for West Pittston. The number 1 for chief.

West Wyoming Council thanks all who helped The recent flooding event has been devastating to many residents of Wyoming Valley and to some of our own residents in West Wyoming who have also been impacted. The borough council and mayor would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our volunteer fire departments, Emergency Management Officer, fire police, ambulance, police department, DPW workers, and borough engineer for their tireless work this past week assisting residents. Thanks to the Boy Scouts of

Troop 366 who helped fill sand bags. We had many citizens who came to the aid of their friends and neighbors; even a lemon aid stand to raise funds for cleaning supplies was organized by neighborhood children. We would also like to thank the local businesses, the Lighthouse Inn, Januzzi’s Pizza, Marianacci’s Restaurant, and Jackson Twp. Fire Department for donating food and beverages for the emergency responders and to Krasavage Construction for assisting with flood control mea-

sures. Community spirit is what makes small towns so special. Thank you to all for your commitment to your friends, neighbors, and West Wyoming Borough. West Wyoming Council Eileen Cipriani Gary Stavish Gil Atherholt Dan Gadomski Len Tarreto Geno Leoni Dan Grescavage Mayor Joseph Herbert

Proud of Patriot football team, on field and off During this past week the magnitude of this valley’s devastation was matched by record levels of strength of humanity, volunteerism, and compassion from the Pittston Area Patriot football team. Last Saturday, when many people were watching the Penn State vs Alabama football game, our Patriot football team was removing debris and pumping out water from the victims’ homes that were affected by the 2011 flood in Duryea.

Many people around the neighborhoods were greeted with a large group of strong and eager young men wearing PA football shirts offering to help their assistance, especially to an equipment coach that always stuck by them during their past seasonal losses. However, this past weekend, everyone learned a lesson, Patriots are proud and they are back! Beginning with a new season, a new head coach and a 2-0 record is just an example of what

exceptional teamwork can accomplish! Granted, they know, winning will not be bought nor handed to them. They have proved to the valley and the district, they are trained to handle blood, sweat and tears, and that when they are lead by an extraordinary coach, like Coach Barrett, it is clear they are in the rebuilding process … and the best is yet to come!

Candlelight vigil in memory of former WA gridder

Fr. Alco from Corpus Christi parish speaks at the vigil honoring John 'Beno' Borzell.

A candlelight vigil was held for John “Beno” Borzell who died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident on September 3. He was 22 years old. Fr. James Alco from Corpus Christi parish spoke before approximately 75 people at the Anthony “Jake” Sobeski Stadium in

West Pittston, the same field on which Beno played football for the Warriors of Wyoming Area. Family members and friends had a chance to speak about Beno and his life and family. Past and present Warrior football players, along with family members, then rang the school bell

17-times in honor of the number he wore on his football jersey. If you would like to donate to the John “Beno” Borzell Scholarship Fund, send monetary gifts in c/o UFCW Credit Union, 377 Wyoming Ave., Wyoming PA, 18644.

In memory I had a column prepared for this week. It was the usual frivolity, mayhem and ridiculousness. But something happened last week and it brought me to my knees. A silly column seemed wrong and trite. It seemed inappropriate and disrespectful. The sadness is thorough and it is raw. Because last week, we lost a wonderful, smart, rising star, as a result of a motorcycle accident. It is the second passing of a child this year and it hits a small community in the gut. It knocks the wind out of all of us and we grieve wholly and completely and we cry honestly with those whom they have left behind. When someone so young, so full of expectation and potential passes away, it is an indescribable pain. There is no rationale. There is no sense. We question ourselves, our soul, our religion. We question God, we question the universe. There is no logic to this type of death. There just simply… isn’t. I sit here and wonder what can I possibly write to celebrate this young man’s life? A life from which he has gathered more joy than an average adult can piece together in their lifetime. I don’t know what I can say to do justice to his shining time on Earth; to not sound like I am just making noise.

Maria Jiunta Heck

I have decided that when something of this magnitude occurs, it is time to re-examine and re-organize our own lives and our own motives. As my grandmother used to say: it’s time to straighten-up and fly right. It is our time to fly right. Use this tragedy to understand how important it is to love everyone. You’ve got to tell your kids you love them every, single day, all day, and show them your love a hundred different ways until Tuesday. You let your children know they matter. They were born into this word to be loved and embraced by you. Don’t ridicule your children, don’t belittle your children, don’t make your children feel anything less than just right. If you have not loved your child today, do it right now. Children…tell your parents they are loved. They may know this on some innate level, but if we never hear it, we sometimes believe it may not be true. I love you. It’s so simple and so basic. It speaks volSee MEMORY, Page 37

Ed. Note: This column appeared last week. We are re-running it today for those who may have missed it due to the flood.

umes, it moves mountains. We need to know we are appreciated and adored. Never say good night without saying: I Love You. Never say good bye without saying I Love You. It is as important to us as the sun rising each day. We are all experiencing a catastrophic flood at the moment. I am, you are, we all are. It’s awful, and it’s a pain in the ass…but all the material things we lost are replaceable. And those that aren’t…cannot matter. We matter. Our children matter. Our friends and parents…they matter. Our rugs and floors and books and toasters…they really don’t . If we prioritize our lives in this manner, it makes more sense. It makes it bearable. We are all still here and you can buy a new toaster. Stop whining. Nothing in your life is worth whining about. Make a decision every day when you awaken: “Today, everything is possible. It’s all good…nothing to cry about. Today is here, I am here and we are all fine.” Don’t log onto Facebook tonight and whine about your boyfriend, your bad haircut, your ingrown toenail or your weight gain. Just don’t. Decide that each day is worth something positive and amazing. A smile and a skip in your step wouldn’t hurt either. Say you’re sorry, and mean it,

dammit. When you make a mistake, admit you’ve made a mistake. Don’t cover-up, don’t place blame and for God’s sake, don’t ignore it and hope it vaporizes. No one will shoot you with an air-soft gun if you err. Just say you’re sorry and accept your fate. Apologizing when you’ve hurt someone shows humility and self-awareness and grace. There are so many roads to take in this lifetime. Take the road to right. To say my heart is broken for the families who have lost a child sounds extraneous and unsubstantial. But it’s true. My heart is broken. I have cried and I have cried some more. I will never understand the monstrosity of your grief, but I share my heart and tears with you. There is a poem I’ve had tucked into every wallet I‘ve owned since my red patent leather Barbie wallet, circa 1972. It has survived its own flood in Agnes, a theft, a return and a drop in a toilet at PSU. This poem has seen me through more scenarios in these past 39 years than I care to admit, but it always comforts me and gets me through the most horrific of times. It eases the pain of loss and it soothes my aching heart. I want to share it with you and perhaps it will soothe yours, too. This one is for Beno.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain,

I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night.

I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not die.

Avoca kids raise money for flooded Holy Rosary School Remembering the lesson of the Good Samaritan she learned in her Catholic home school curriculum, 8-year-old Avoca resident Mary McAdarra knew she wanted to do something to help people who were impacted by the recent flooding in the Wyoming Valley. After some thought, Mary rallied the support of her brothers, Johnny and Nicholas, as well as her neighborhood friends to raise money to donate to Holy Rosary School which suffered significant damage in the recent flooding in neighboring Duryea. From September 13-15, the 13 children sold iced tea for 50 cents per glass and homemade applesauce for $1 per serving curbside at the McAdarra home from 4-7 p.m. after school. Through their efforts, the kids raised not only over $100, but also everyone’s spirits. Those who helped served the people in need are: Mary, Johnny, and Nicholas McAdarra; Belle and Charlie Vermac; Miz Kishbaugh; Brandon, Lauren, and Jack Farrell; Matt and Sarah Molea; Logan Bertrand; and Miranda Romanofski.

There’s a hymn that contains the lyric, “Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.” Those words are a fitting description of what so many have witnessed in town this week. Following days of devastation resulting from recent Lackawanna River flooding, Duryea citizens have certainly pulled together to help one another. Swarms of Duryea’s and neighboring towns’ first responders along with neighbors, friends, and even passers-by have pulled together to start recovery efforts in our community. One of the places where this effort has been most evident is at the VFW Post 1227 in Duryea. Capturing the attention of over 350 social network users, the “Help for Duryea Flood Victims” Facebook page has brought about an outpouring of love and generosity from throughout the region. Because of the fundraising campaign of this network, the VFW is filled with clothes, cleaning supplies, appliances, and so many other items donated by all of you. According to the site, a former Duryea resident now residing in Texas was shipping a box of items to the VFW because she cares so much about her hometown. This type of spirit really helps to start the healing the town needs right now. While it will take numerous months for flood victims lives to resemble any sort of normalcy, the long road to recovery begins now. The volunteers who have been so dedicated in organizing the “Help for Duryea Flood Victims” relief program encourage not only Duryea residents but also any person who has been impacted by the flood to come to the collection site at 492 Stephenson St. to gather supplies to assist them in their cleanup efforts. Happy Birthday

O’Brien powers Warriors to win Junior QB runs for 218 yards and 4 TDs in 42-10 victory over LL By Tommy Romanelli

Dispatch Correspondent

It’s been two weeks since Wyoming Area stepped on a football field. Forced to cancel its game with West Scranton last week because of the flooding to West Pittston and other west-side communities, the Warriors were chomping at the bit to get back to the gridiron and prove they were better than the team that gave up a 34-12 halftime lead in its opener. It didn’t take Wyoming Area long to do just that. Junior quarterback Nick O’Brien scored on the Warriors first play from scrimmage on his way to a huge night as Wyoming Area smashed Lake-Lehman, 43-10, in a Wyoming Valley Conference Class 2A game at Edwards Stadium on Friday night in the Back Mountain. On Lake Lehman’s first possession it seemed as if the predictions of a shootout were going to come true. The Black Knights moved the ball down the field with ease on the Warriors defense until Lehman quarterback Jared Novitski threw a backward pass and missed his receiver. The ball was ruled a fumble which the Warriors recovered to set up O’Brien O’Brien – who rushed for 218 yards and four touchdowns on the night – took his first snap with approximately 10 minutes on the clock and ripped up the middle through a wide-open hole for a 61-yard touchdown. Freshman Jeff Skursky ran in the two-point conversion and the Warriors led, 8-0. “My coach just has put me in a good position to make plays,” said O’Brien on

Short-handed Blue Devils fall to Vikes Riverside’s 3-2 victory is first in program’s history

By Matt Page

Dispatch Correspondent

Riverside dealt Old Forge a tough loss 3-2 on Monday in Lackawanna Soccer League Division 3 action at Veterans Memorial Stadium as the Blue Devils played the first half without three of its top players. The victory by the Vikings was the team’s first over Old Forge – and its first LSL win ever. Missing senior captains J Argonish, Adam Barsigian and Ian Nemetz for the entire first half – the trio were at a previously scheduled Blue Devils golf match - junior Matt Mancuso was able to help hold things together for Old Forge (1-2) as they went into the half down 1-0 on a Marc Lucas unassisted goal with less than eight minutes left. Mancuso himself left immediately after the match to go kick for the football team who was playing in WilkesBarre. "Mancuso is going to be the key to our season this year, he is going to be the guy to step up and he is going to make or break the season for us," said Head Coach John Argonish. "He’s a tremendous player... he does everything we ask him to do, he’s a tremendous attribute to our team." When the threesome, Old Forge seemed to gain some confidence and a little bit of swagger as they came out and tied the game less than three minutes into the half when Mancuso’s corner kick was put into the back of the net by Bobby Cipollina. However, Riverside answered right back at the 47:52 mark to take a 2-1lead off of a big throw in that was touched into the left side of the net by Jaron Vishnesky. Old Forge nearly tied the game with less than 22 minutes left when Nemetz got his head on a Mancuso corner and forced a defender to make the save off of the goal line.

Mackin took a through ball for Riverside and was one-on-one with Old Forge keeper Corey Washington. The Vikings striker tried to place the ball around Washington, forcing him to make a sliding kick-save to keep the Blue Devils within one goal. Four minutes later, Mancuso took a pass from Argonish and drilled the potential game tying goal off of the crossbar. Riverside shocked Old Forge who was controlling the ball and maintaining their attack - when Mackin took the ball and bent it perfectly around Washington to push its lead to 3-1 with 5:42 left in the game. Two minutes later Mancuso found Argonish again, however this time the returning LSL-3 allstar was able to find the back of the net after fighting his way through two defenders cutting the lead to 3-2. However, Riverside was able to stymie the Blue Devils offense for the final three minutes and hold on for the win. "I’m real happy with the way we worked the ball," said Argonish. "The last two games we’ve out shot our opponents, we’ve won more corners, we’ve won more balls, we’ve won more balls in the midfield, it’s just the game of soccer and we came up a little short today." OF 3, Forest City 8

A shell-shocked Old Forge team surrendered six goals in the first 40 minutes in a 8-3 loss to Forest City on Tuesday afternoon at the Billy Long Sports Complex in Old Forge. The Foresters scored four goals during a five-minute stretch in the middle of the first half to put the game away. The Blue Devils finally got on the board in the11th minute of the second half when J Argonish scored on a nice feed from Matt Mancuso to cut the Forest City lead to 7-1. Four minutes later, Argonish scored an unassisted goal to get Old Forge (1-2) within 7-2. But the Foresters added another goal before Ian Nemetz scored See PATRIOTS, Page 54


Crestwood screams past Patriots Second game in five days hurts PA in 54-31 loss By Josh Horton

Dispatch Correspondent

After an emotional come-from-behind victory over Scranton on Monday, Pittston Area just didn’t have anymore to give. Forced to play two games in five days due to the flooding which struck northeastern Pennsylvania, the short break was not so kind to the Patriots as they fell 5431 to undefeated Crestwood in a Wyoming Valley Conference Class 3A game on Friday night in Mountaintop. The Comets jumped out an early 28-7 lead in the first half and never looked back. Luck was hardly on the Patriots side when the Comets recovered an onside kick to start the game. Less than two minutes into the game, Crestwood quarterback Nick Aigeldinger bulldozed his way into the end zone. He then added the extra point giving the Comets the 7-0 lead. Pittston Area (2-1) bounced back tying the game at 7-7 with 2:43 remaining in the first quarter. Anthony Schwab dropped back, but could not find an open receiver. So the senior signal-caller navigated his way around several Comet defenders and went seven yards for the score. Chris Mus-

Many have compared the recent September flooding to the Agnes flood in 1972. However, the world is much more technologically advanced now, than it was 39 years ago, and the Pittston Area football team took advantage of the that new technology when one of their own needed them most. Last Saturday, Pittston Area head coach Mike Barrett sent a text message to his team and before he knew it he had an abundance of football players ready to do their part in the flood relief. “All it took was a text message and we had 25 guys ready to go,” Barrett said. “It was such a devastating scene, but I was proud of how our guys stepped up and did what they could to help.” One of the houses they ended up helping clean up was that of Pittston Area assistant coach Mark Naylor who lost much of his home when the flood waters rose five feet. When it was time to clean up, Naylor didn’t

Blue Devils punish Northwest in 35-8 rout Old Forge defnese allows just 12 yards rushing victory By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Old Forge made a statement from the first play of the game that its defense would control its early season showdown with District 2 Class 1A foe Northwest on Friday night. And what a statement it was. The Blue Devils picked off Rangers’ quarterback Gunner Majer’s first pass of the game, and held the Rangers to just 12 yards rushing as it dominated the line of scrimmage on its way to a 35-8 victory at Old Forge Veterans Memorial Stadium. “Joey Ciuccio is off the ball better than anybody right now,” said Old Forge Head Coach Mike Schuback of his

senior defensive end who has five sacks and four fumble recoveries in three games. “He understands what’s going on with our defense. He does what is asked of him. He doesn’t play out of the defense. He is just playing within the team concept. “I can’t be happier from the defensive line stand point (Anthony) Conforti is back healthy at D-Tackle. (Paul) Papi, Tony (DeSando), Tippy (Tyler Clark) are all jumping in there and giving us something. Cory Stuart right off the bat on the interception, pressuring the quarterback, make a statement. Our rotation is as solid as it has ever been. We’ve never had this depth with lineman that could run.”

After Old Forge linebacker Ryan Cadwalder picked off Majer’s pass at his own 27yard line to start the game, the Blue Devils drove 62 yards where they had first-and-10 from the Northwest 11. But Dalton Tomko returned the favor for the Rangers, picking off a Colin Carey pass on his own 4-yard line to keep Old Forge out of the endzone. It wouldn’t matter as the Blue Devils held Northwest to minus-2 yards on first and second down, and after a Majer incompletion, Old Forge forced Northwest to punt. DeSando got free and blocked Dalton Tomko’s punt after the senior had trouble with the snap. He then pounced on the loose pigskin See DESANDO, Page 57

Three times Old Forge drove inside the GAR 25-yard line in the second half with the ability to get within a touchdown of the defending District 2 Class 2A champions. Three times the Blue Devils turned the ball over. It was the story of the game for Old Forge as the Blue Devils turned the ball over a total of five times in a 29-14 loss to the Grenadiers on Monday night at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium. Old Forge opened the game by running the ball right at the GAR defense as Lou Febbo ripped off a 25-yard run on the first play from scrimmage before capping an 11-play, 65-yard drive with a two-yard plunge. Dave Argust booted the extra-point and the Blue Devils led, 7-0, with 6:52

left in the first quarter. The teams traded possessions before GAR quarterback Darrell Crawford went 14-yards on a scramble on second-and-11 to knot the game at 7-7 just 43 seconds shy of the second quarter. The second quarter was ugly in terms of offense as both teams combined for just 13 net yards. But with Argust standing in his own endzone setting up to punt toward the end of the first half, GAR got a break. A bad snap caused Argust to kick a loose football out of the endzone intentionally for a safety, giving the Grenadiers a 9-7 lead at the half. The third quarter opened with what could have been the break Old Forge was looking. But instead it turned into an opportunity for the Grenadiers unheralded defense to assert itself.

Patriots rally to beat Scranton Knights, 21-14 Pittston Area wins in Barrett’s home debut By Josh Horton

Dispatch Correspondent

When Pittston Area began practice over a month ago, Head Coach Mike Barrett believed they would be competitive in his first year at the helm. After the team failed to win a game last season, one might have said Barrett’s expectations were a bit far fetched. However, with a 21-14 victory over Scranton Area, Barrett and his Patriots are beginning to prove they are once again ready to put Pittston Area football back on the map. “I’m really excited, I love these guys, they are awesome,” Barrett said. “We played tough tonight and I was really happy with how we competed.” The way the game started, it seemed the Patriots were in for a long night. Scranton’s Joe McCarthy began the game with a squib kick right up the middle of the field. The Knights recovered the kick and began their first offensive drive of the game on the Patriots 24-yard line. The Patriots stuffed the Knights’ offensive plans however and forced them to punt the ball away. Pittston Area couldn’t get anything going on their first drive and Chris Musto punted the ball a booming 48 yards to ensure the Knights didn’t get great field position. But McCarthy put a dent in that plan, running the kick back 30 yards all the way to the Patriots 38-yard line. Scranton drove to the Patriots 24-yard line, but instead of going for a field goal they tried to get the first down on fourthand-4. Pittston Area had other plans as the duo of Joe Harth and John Ameen stuffed fullback Kyle Czarnowski near the line of scrimmage forcing a turnover on downs. Ameen had a huge night defensively, posting a game-high 15 tackles for the Patriots. Pittston Area took over on their 22-yard line with 4:46 remaining in the first quarter, and drove for a score to take a 7-0

lead with 23 seconds left in the opening period. The drive consisted of two Anthony Schwab completions along with some key rushes by Justin Wilk and Marc Romanczuk. Freshman Kyle Gattuso put the Patriots in the red zone when he broke loose for 32 yards. “Kyle is going to be a good player,” Barrett said. “He showed us what he could do in the offseason and leading up to the season. He works very hard.” Wilk then went on a jaunt of his own, 12 yards into the end zone, and Musto added the extra-point for the lead. “The line did a heck of a job blocking tonight (Monday),” Barrett said. “I am so proud of them.” Scranton came roaring back in the second quarter eventually taking a 14-7 lead.

The McCarthy brothers scored both Knight touchdowns. Joe found the end zone first, rushing 56 yards to paydirt on the first play of the second quarter, and younger brother Jake scored with 5:55 left in the first half after breaking free for 54 yards. Scranton converted the twopoint conversion after the first touchdown and missed the PAT after the second score. Neither team found the end zone in the third quarter. However, the Patriots offense erupted for two unanswered touchdowns in the final quarter. Wilk scored his second touchdown of the game with 10:11 remaining in the game. It came on a 3-yard rush. Musto continued to be consistent with his PATs and the Patriots and Knights were tied at 14-14.

The Patriots weren’t done there. Romanczuk gave the Patriots the lead and the eventual win by bulldozing his way one-yard across the goal line with 2:42 remaining. Musto was cool under pressure and made it a perfect 9for-9 on the year with extra points to give PA a 21-14 lead. The Patriots defense came up big backed by strong efforts from Ameen, Jake Zalewski, Tyler Roman, David Dragon, Cody and Joe Stoss, and Jordan Houseman. All had tremendous games for the Patriots and were a big reason the Patriots stayed in the game. Dragon notched 11 tackles and Zalewski added seven. Scranton penalties helped the Patriots in the game, bailing them out of many tough situations. The Knights were penal-

ized 17 times for a total of 165 yards. Many of their penalties came in the final quarter. The Patriots were only penalized three times for a total of 30 yards. Wilk was the leading rusher for the Patriots. He carried the ball 17 times for a total of 62 yards. Despite going just 1-for-4 with a touchdown and an interception in the season opener, Schwab drastically improved against the Knights. He was 13for-20 with 114 yards. Houseman caught eight balls for 67 yards and added one rush for 34 yards. “Last week we wanted to establish our running game,” Barrett said. “But this week we let Anthony throw the ball and he did a heck of a job. I was really impressed.”

Matt Mancuso’s first of three successful extra-points was good, and the Blue Devils led 7-0 with 7:11 remaining in the first quarter. “It felt really good to score a touchdown,” said DeSando. “There was an opening and I just shot through and got there. Then I jumped on the football.” Old Forge forced Northwest to punt on its next two possessions before taking over firstand-10 on the Rangers 16 to open the second quarter after Carey completed a pass to Anthony Piccolini for 20 yards and scrambled for another 10. The Blue Devils held Northwest to just five total yards in the first quarter. But the drive stalled after two incompletions and a 2yard run by Carey after Northwest had declined a holding penalty on Old Forge to force fourth-and-8 The Blue Devils were content to settle for a 30-yard field goal try as they trotted Mancuso out to kick. But the Rangers jumped off sides, and Old Forge went for it on fourth-and-3, converting when Carey ran six yards on a keeper to the Northwest 3. Three plays later Lou Febbo hit paydirt from 1-yard out to put the Blue Devils ahead, 14-0 with 9:47 left in the second period. “They block for me so I have no problem blocking for anyone else,” said Febbo who rushed for 111 yards on 10 carries after going the entire first quarter without a carry. “It’s easy when your offensive line is doing the job like they did tonight. They made me look good out there.” Febbo scored again on the Blue Devils next possession, capping an eight-play drive with a 2-yard burst up the middle to put Old Forge ahead, 21-0, with 4:38 left in the first half. The Blue Devils defense was dominating in the first half, allowing just seven yards on nine rushes and forcing Majer into a 5-for-13 performance. Majer did throw for 90 yards in the opening 24

After GAR opened the third quarter on its own 43 following a nice return by Shaliek Powell, the Blue Devils recovered a fumbled snap, turning the ball back – and momentum - over to the Old Forge offense. Two rushes by Blue Devils quarterback Colin Carey and another by tailback Lou Febbo set Old Forge up at the GAR 23 with second-and-8. Dropping back to pass, Carey was hurried into an incompletion by pressure from defensive linemen Shakir Soto and Elijah Greshman. The GAR duo did the same on third down, and as Carey tried to set up a screen for Febbo on fourth down, Greshman again was there to force a third straight incompletion. The defensive stand was the turning point as the Grenadiers rattled off 20 straight points on its next three possessions to take command of the game. Dwayne Wright carried for 20 yards on two carries after GAR took over, and on third-and-5 from the Grenadiers 45, quarterback Darrell Crawford hooked up with Powell for a 38-yard completion give GAR first down from the Old Forge 12. On the next snap, Wright carried up the middle before sprinting to the corner for the touchdown, and a 16-7 GAR lead with 8:42 left in the third quarter. Old Forge was on the move again before the GAR defense made another play. Carey had rushed for 19 yards

minutes – 59 of which came on a hook up with Tyler Pegarella after Old Forge went ahead by three scores. But the Blue Devils held after the play set the Rangers up on the Old Forge eight by forcing three straight incompletions after Majer ran for two yards on first down. Old Forge opened the second half with a 32-yard kickoff return by Mike Vieira, coupled with a personal foul facemask penalty on the Rangers which put the Blue Devils on the Northwest 34. Five plays later, Carey hit Febbo with a middle screen pass on fourth-and-11 which the senior tailback broke for a 25-yard touchdown run after great blocks from sophomore guard Paul Papi and senior wideout Dave Argust. Mancuso’s kick was wide right, but Old Forge was in control, 27-0, with 9:24 left. The Old Forge defense then dug in, sacking Majer twice on the next possession with

both DeSando and Ciuccio getting to the 6’3, 230-pound signal caller. On the second sack, Ciuccio pried the ball lose from Majer and recovered the fumble at the Blue Devils 39. “We really went back to our roots this week,” said Ciuccio. “We really stepped up and made some big plays and big tackles tonight.” Old Forge added its final score with 2:17 left in the third quarter when Carey found Vieira in the back of the endzone for a 19-yard touchdown. Carey then completed the two-point pass to Argust, and the Mercy Rule went into effect with the 35-0 lead. Carey finished the night 16for-25 for 193 yards. “I told them before the game, the only team that could beat you is yourselves,” said Schuback. “If you don’t turn the ball over, and you don’t make mistakes, you are going to win football games.”

and a first down into Grenadiers territory, but while fighting for extra yards, Powell stripped the ball from the senior signal-caller. On third-and-1, Crawford scampered for 35 yards down the home sideline before hooking up with Powell two downs later for 17 yards to set up first-and-goal from the Old Forge 6. The senior then called his own number on a keeper to put GAR ahead, 22-7. The two-point pass failed. The Blue Devils tried to answer on its ensuing possession, driving to the GAR 15 on 10 plays, but Max Gates caused and recovered a fumble on an option play to give the ball back to Crawford and the Grenadiers. On the next play from scrimmage, Crawford electrified the home crowd. Taking the snap out of the shotgun formation, Crawford – who rushed for148 yards on13 carries – started left before sprinting up the middle of the field and to the endzone for the 80-yard touchdown. Height’s kick was good and GAR led 29-7 with 11:08 remaining. Old Forge got to within 29-14 after the Blue Devils forced a turnover in GAR territory. Carey scored on a 1-yard sneak with 8:31 to go, but Old Forge could get no closer as Wright picked off a Carey pass on fourth down to end a threat. Carey rushed for 161 yards on 16 carries for the Blue Devils but was intercepted three times by GAR. Febbo added 85 yards and Old Forge’s first touchdown.

SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2011

It’s tough to think about hunting season It has been a trying week for many residents of the Greater Pittston area. I sit here with a very heavy heart trying to write an upbeat story while many local people are still scraping the mud off of personal belongings. I close my eyes and see the piles of furniture, muddy carpets and ruined clothing lining the streets of our area. Much of my time this week was taken up by flood coverage. It was hard to look in the faces of the people who lost everything and some without flood insurance. The flood waters and its devastation have consumed their lives not just their property. For me it’s flashbacks to 1972. I was twelve years old at the time and like most people I felt helpless despite the fact that my home was blocks away from the flooding. The facial expressions on the victims who experienced the ravaging flood waters back then looked as tired and frustrated as the faces on the latest victims. The magnitude of this disaster is unprecedented and has left many of us searching for a way to help. Churches have been feeding the hungry workers and families, businesses are donating services and supplies, and people have been volunteering with countless hours of shoveling, scrubbing and lifting. There is a way to make a donation for local flood victims. It has been set up through the local Red Cross. Readers can donate to the "Red Cross Local Flood Relief" at P.O. Box 526, Scranton, PA 18501. You can also donate online at localfloodrelief.com. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone directly or indirectly affected by the flood of 2011.

OUTDOORS WITH JAKE Archery Season

The opening day of the 2011 archery season is two weeks away. The six week season begins on Saturday, October 1, and closes on Saturday, November 12. If you haven’t been scouting or practicing with your bow and arrow then the next two weeks are critical for safety and success. The recent hurricanes and floods may have played havoc with your trails and treestands. It is important to check out your hunting hotspots. Make sure the steps on your treestands are safe to climb. This should be done well in advance of the opening day. Be sure to check your permanent stands before hunting out of them. They may have weakened or they may have pulled away from the tree. Many trees have fallen victim to the storm. Be sure the tree itself isn’t cracked or partially uprooted. Many hunters I know 4-wheel drive or ATV to their stands. I strongly recommend that these travel routes are explored during the daylight. The last thing you want to do is happen upon a ma-

jor washout or dangerous overhang. Many of the Pennsylvania Game Land roads have been washed out or even destroyed by the recent flooding. The conditions are so bad that the Game Commission was forced to cancel its Game Land tours set for early October. Officials tell me that they are working to get as many roads passable for hunters as possible. Once again be sure to check. It is my experience that most deer trails are used from year to year however be sure to check them in advance in case the winds toppled a few trees changing the path of the deer. You may also be surprised to find newly created water holes to hunt over or obstacles blocking the view from your stands or ground blinds. The key is to get out if you can and check your hunting spots. It is not too late to get the bow out and practice. I would first make sure the screws are all tight and your string is in good condition. I would also be sure that your arrows are still in good shape before hitting the archery

target. The next thing is practice, practice, practice. Be sure you can hit the mark before shooting at a deer. There is one change to the mentor hunting seasons that I want to make sure you are aware of. But first a little background. Under the program, a mentor is defined as a properly licensed individual at least 21 years of age, who will serve as a guide to a youth while engaged in hunting or related activities, such as scouting, learning firearms or hunter safety and wildlife identification. A mentored youth is identified as an unlicensed individual less than 12 years of age who is accompanied by a mentor while engaged in hunting or related activities. Mentored youth can participate during any established season for woodchucks (groundhogs), squirrels, spring gobbler, coyotes and antlered and now antlerless deer. They can also take part in the general squirrel season, spring gobbler season, the junior-only squirrel season (Oct. 9-15) and the junior-only spring gobbler day (April 23).

For antlered deer, the mentored youth must use legal sporting arms for that season; for example, a bow or crossbow must be used during archery antlered deer season and they are required to follow the same antler restrictions as a junior license holder, which is one antler of three or more inches in length or one antler with at least two points. What’s new for this year is the ability for a mentor hunter to shoot an antlerless deer. In order to harvest an antlerless deer, an adult mentor may transfer one of his valid antlerless license to an eligible mentored youth upon the harvest of an antlerless deer, and a mentored youth may only receive one antlerless deer license each license year. The antlerless deer license transferred to the mentored youth must be for the Wildlife Management Unit in which the adult mentor and youth are hunting. The regulations require that the mentor-to-mentored youth ratio be one-to-one, and that the pair possesses only one sporting arm when hunting. While moving, the sporting arm must be carried by the mentor. When the pair reaches a stationary hunting location, the mentor may turn over possession of the sporting arm to the youth and must keep the youth within arm’s length at all times. All other safety rules apply to both hunters. I like the changes in this law. I wish they had it when I was growing up. Good luck and be safe if you’re going out. Be sure to watch Pennsylvania outdoor Life tonight at 6:30. We’ll take you to a Tioga County lake for a bow and arrow carp hunting adventure.

see,” PA Head Coach Mike Barrett said. “Defensively we were very poor. We didn’t tackle very well at all. They had some great athletes.” Justin Wilk continued his consistency in the backfield, by traveling four yards into the end zone. The Patriots decided to go for the two point conversion and it proved to be the right choice. Schwab found freshman Kyle Gattuso in the back corner of the end zone. The Comet lead was now 35-15. Crestwood responded as Nick Powell went on a 46-yard jaunt widening the gap to 42-15 with 6:25 remaining in the third quarter. Aigeldinger then added his second rushing touchdown of the night extending the Comets lead to 48-15 with 2:00 left in the third. The extra point was missed wide right. The Patriots answered with a touchdown of their own just one minute later. Gattuso broke loose for 46 yards and Wilk finished the drive with a 13-yard touchdown run. Schwab again completed the two-point conversion. This time, he found Joe Starinsky in the corner of the end zone to get PA within 48-23. Marc Romanczuck found the end zone for the first time in the game with 4:26 remaining after Crestwood went ahead 54-23. He pounded his way through the

Comets line for the one-yard score. Schwab made it a perfect 3-for-3 on two-point conversions when he found Evan Hahn in the back of the end zone to close the scoring at 54-31. Gattuso was the bright spot on the Patriots offense. He rushed nine times for 106 yards, including big gains of 21 yards, 46 yards and 11 yards. “He had a heck of a game, he’s going to be alright,” Barrett said. “He is a young kid with a very bright future and we moved the ball up and down the field in the second half.” Jordan Houseman led the receiving core with four catches for 54 yards but left the game in

the second half with an arm injury. Houseman had ice on his forearm on the sidelines but Barrett didn’t believe the injury was serious. “He took a pretty hard hit,” Barrett said. “Then in the second half he came down on it and might have hyper-extended it a bit, but I think he will be alright.” The schedule doesn’t get any easier on Friday night when Pittston Area hosts Dallas on Friday night at Charley Trippi Stadium. “They could have quit and they didn’t and that’s what I wanted to see,” Barrett said. “We will get back on the board and we will get ready for Dallas and see how it goes,”

off on Saturday, but rather than sit at home and watch college football, they decided the right thing to do was to go out and help. “We had the day off, but we wanted to help,” Schwab said. “The whole team was at Coach Naylor’s all day, trying to help him and his family the best we could. We cleaned and power washed his garage. Then we emptied his basement and pumped all the water out.” Naylor wasn’t the only member of the team affected by the flooding. Sophomore lineman Mike Hughes and his family lost much of their home in Duryea. “I feel awful for Mike,” Barrett said. “I guess there were some problems with the foundation, but it sounds like they may be able to fix it.”

The Patriots didn’t just help people they knew, they helped as many people in the Duryea area as they could. “When we got there, we all went door to door seeing how we can help,” Schwab said. “I have never been more proud to be on this team than I am right now. We have a great group of guys and I love every one of them.” In just his first year, Barrett has gotten a grasp on these guys and they seem to be responding well to the new philosophy. Barrett echoed the statements of his senior quarterback. “They didn’t complain once all day and they worked with a smile on their face,” Barrett said. “We’re starting a program here and we’re off to a good start on the field and off the field. I love these guys.”

They will be back next season, of course, but their 2011 season has come to an end. Unfortunately for us, they will be going to Lehigh Valley for at least the 2012 season. The Yankees and Lackawanna County have decided to do some much-needed renovations on PNC field. This is going to be a refreshing change to the sorry looking stadium and a great idea on their part. With the Yankees temporarily away, a burning question should come to mind to you. Have you missed out? This past season the SWB Yankees have definitely underachieved. They missed the playoffs this season for the first time under the Yankees name and they did it with, what I think, is the best team they’ve put together since they’ve come to the Scranton area. They came into the season with a ton of promise. An allprospect starting rotation, their top hitting prospect in Jesus Montero starting at catcher, and some veteran players to help along the way. How could they not finish on top again? It seemed to me, even though the team was so good, they just never gelled together. They never had that chemistry it takes to win. Even after the games in the clubhouse, whether they won or lost, it was for the most part quiet. I definitely think that was a huge reason why they didn’t live up to the potential that was there. I don’t put the entire blame on them for the lack of chemistry on the team, though. The New York Yankees had so many injuries to fill that the SWB roster was almost changing daily. It’s hard to establish chemistry when there’s a new guy sitting next you every other day. Just because the team didn’t win as much as it could have doesn’t mean it still wasn’t worth going out for the games. The team had its share of highlights this season. Jorge Vazquez set a new SWB franchise record for homeruns in the regular season with 32. Jesus Montero was the starting catcher all season up until September 1st. He is expected to be a Major League superstar. He’s now getting a lot of playing time at the MLB level and he is doing very well. SWB has also seen a handful of Major League players rehabbing from injuries including Phil Coke, Magglio Ordonez, Delmon Young, Freddy Garcia, Raphael Soriano, and of course Alex Rodriguez. There were plenty of reasons to come out and watch the SWB Yankees and there will be in the future too. They should have most of their pitching prospects returning next season. Brandon Laird will be back refining his game, but he could be called up sometime next year. The most interesting part of next year, though, will be top pitching prospects Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances in their first full Triple-A season. Hopefully you haven’t missed out on this season but even if you have, the SWB Yankees will be back in a year or two and, with a new stadium and great prospects, they’ll be better than ever. Tommy Romanelli is a Wyoming Area grad and a sophomore at LCCC. He writes for pinstripesplus.com. His thoughts on the SWB Yankees appeared in The Dispatch through the 2011 season.

have to do it alone. “I don’t have a whole lot of words to express my gratitude,” Naylor said. “It was very heartfelt and I am very appreciative of everything they did to help.” One of the many Pittston Area football players who were there to help was senior starting quarterback Anthony Schwab. He compared the scenes of Duryea to a war zone. “There was so much devastation in that area and it was heartbreaking,” said Schwab. “I have never seen anything like it and I don’t think any of my teammates have either. It opened everyone’s eyes right up.” Barrett gave the team the day

‘Heart’ goes a long way for Warriors By Tommy Romanelli

Dispatch Correspondent

The Valley with a Heart. That is what was written on a sign of one of the local flood victims of Wyoming Area and it couldn’t have been truer Friday night when the Warriors took on Lake Lehman. In a 43-10 victory over the Knights, the Warriors brought back a little of the pride that the Wyoming Area community lost in the recent flooding. It was an important game for the Warriors to bounce back after giving up the lead late in their first game but it was also an important and emotional game for the Warrior fans, players, coaches, and cheerleaders. “It was a big win for our program coming off the last three weeks with the flood,” said Wyoming Area Head Coach Randy Spencer.

It was the first school activity since the flooding and it brought out a full house in both bleachers. The game was originally supposed to be a home game for the Warriors but because of the conditions of the field it was moved to Lehman. You couldn’t tell it was in Lehman though because the away side of the field was packed with green and gold. “The win was huge for Wyoming Area because of everything that happened with the flood and the damage people had to their homes,” said WA cheerleader Erin Maloney. “It gave everyone a chance to get out and get everything off of their mind and [the win] was good because everyone got to go home happy.” Despite many local residents being affected by the flood they all came out to show their support and the football team didn’t disappoint them. Just like last week the Warriors jumped out to a big lead

but instead of faltering in the late stages of the game they kept their foot on the peddle and kept control of the game. Wyoming Area QB Nick O’Brien came up big in a time when his school and town needed him the most, leading the Warriors with 218 yards rushing and four touchdowns. “[This game] was big coming off of the flood,” said O’Brien. “The loss in the first week was heart breaking and it was good to pull it off.” It was quite a performance for a team that hadn’t practiced in a week. Instead of their usual reps the WA football players spent their time helping people in their community clean up and rebuild everything they had lost. One victim they helped was Coach Spencer. “I am proud of [the football players] as students, friends, and members of the community,” said Spencer.

O’Brien rushed for 218 yards, 4TD his performance. Lake-Lehman then got the ball back on the six-yard line and went three-and-out. The punt snap went over the punter’s head and out of the end zone for a safety to give WA a 10-0 lead. The Black Knights seemed as if it they were going to make it a competitive when tailback Nick Shelley ran around the outside of a Wyoming Area defender for a 22-yard touchdown to get LakeLehman within 10-7. On its next possession, Lehman knotted the score at 10-10 as Novitski booted a 36-yard field goal with 2:36 to go in the first half. That’s when the tide turned. It took all of a minute for the Warriors to drive down the field and score on a perfectly thrown ball by O’Brien that went over the shoulder of the defender and into the hands of Justin Langdon for a 29-yard touchdown pass. The kick failed, but WA had retaken the lead at 16-10 with 1:15 left in the second quarter. Wyoming Area scored again before the first half ended when a Ryan Filipiak fumble recovery

set up a 3-yard Jeff Skursky touchdown with 23 seconds left in the first half. O’Brien then found Cody Schmitz in the endzone for the two-point pass, and the Warriors went to the locker room ahead 24-10. O’Brien immediately started off the second half with a bang, rushing for 35 yards in two plays adding another touchdown on a 9-yard run just 30 seconds into the third quarter for a 30-10 lead. The shifty O’Brien added two more scores on the night on runs two and six yards as the Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter. Wyoming Area had a great game on the defensive side of the ball, holding the Black Knights

to just seven yards passing. Freshman Marty Michaels highlighted the effort with an interception. It was a refreshing performance by a defense that blew a late lead in its first game of the season. Spencer said that after losing a week worth of preparation they were, “hoping for the best.” “We really have to put on the throttle and not give up,” said Spencer on finishing games. “Just right from the outset we wanted to put the foot on the gas.” Dispatch Staff Writer Rick Notari also contributed to this report.

IAALC holds scholarship awards dinner

Medic 303 welcomes new vehicle to fleet Over the course of 25 years and 60,000 calls, Geisinger’s Medic 303 advanced life support vehicle has turned a lot of heads for the quality care its crew has provided and the role it has played in saving lives. Now, this unit based in Pittston will be turning heads thanks to a new, shiny 2010 special edition Ford Expedition that entered service in May, replacing

an older, less efficient vehicle. The truck, which is designed with the latest EMT equipment, logs about 3,000 miles per month while servicing the Greater Pittston area. Pictured in the attached photo, from left, are Pat Healey, EMT, Medic 303; Frank Wozniak, EMT, Medic 303; David Schoenwetter, D.O., FACEP, director, Geisinger EMS; John

Buckley, chief administrative officer, Geisinger Northeast; Steven Pierdon, M.D., chief medical officer, Geisinger Northeast; and Jack Lasky, EMS coordinator, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center (GWV), as they show off the new Medic 303 vehicle that utilizes less space than previous vehicles while improving patient care.

The Italian American Association of Luzerne County (IAALC) recently held their 20th Scholarship Awards Dinner at Genetti Hotel and Conference Center. This year’s recipients were Al-

icia Esposio, Hazleton; Maria Chirico, Hazleton; and David Voitek, Scranton Prep. Shown in the photo, seated, left to right, Alicia Esposio, David Voitek, and Maria Chirico;

Wilkes University sends out fall 2011 student teachers

Eleven Wilkes University education majors are completing student teaching assignments for the fall 2011 semester. These student teachers are working in high schools and elementary schools in districts throughout northeast Pennsylvania. Their areas of specialization range from secondary and elementary education to early childhood and special education. Pictured in front row, left to right are Carol Herman, Madison Township, Pa.; Charmaine Aguilar, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Jamie Kramer, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Alyson Paulauskas, Back Mountain, Pa. and Brianna Koch, Berwick, Pa. Back row, left to right are Michael Cusumano, Old Forge, Pa.; Sean Madden, Dunmore, Pa.; Richard Cosgrove, WilkesBarre, Pa.; Robert Oravitz, Mountain Top, Pa.; James Histed Jr., Lake Ariel, Pa.; and Suzanne Murray-Galella, Tunkhannock, Pa.

Sculpture commemorating 9/11 on display at Sem Lower School Wyoming Seminary Lower School is pleased to announce the installation of "September Grief" by local artist Kendal A. Hancock. The sculpture is on a long-term loan with the school and serves as a tribute to the firefighters that gave their lives on September 11, 2001. Hancock began sculpting and welding professionally in 2002 and soon after was named to the Allied Artist Association of America. His work reflects a range of artistic sensitivity and craftsmanship using composition, movement and balance to explore steel as a soft and warm medium. The result is one-of-akind creations that speak from the heart. "This is a tribute to not only the firefighters that gave their

lives on September11, but it is also a tribute to those that survived," said Hancock. "I created this for them." Trained in welding by his father at the age of ten, Hancock uses the technique to create steel sculptures and art pedestals. He has participated in the Manhattan Arts International’s "I Love New York" competition and is a member of the Allied Artist Association of America, the Audubon Artist Inc. and the Texas Society of Sculptors. Pictured from left are Dr. Kip Nygren, Wyoming Seminary President; Dr. Claire Smith Hornung, Dean of Primary; Kendal A. Hancock, artist; Fouzia Hancock; and Kay Young, Director of Development.

Sem Lower School launches ‘One-to-One Laptop’ project Fourth-grade students at Wyoming Seminary Lower School are taking part in a new One-to-One Laptop Computer pilot program for the 2011-2012 academic year. Dr. Kip Nygren, Sem president, presented the 30 students with individual new MacBook laptop computers which they will use every day in school. Following the laptop presentation, the students learned how to use and take care of their computers and how to stay safe while using the Internet. The students will use the computers to organize information, complete individual and collaborative assignments, investigate problems, communicate with other students around the world, create solutions to problems and many other tasks. Fourth-grade teachers Kristine McCarthy and Lisa Bailey have revised their curriculum to include the daily

use of the laptops and will assist the teachers in other grades in primary and middle school in preparing for an expansion of the One-to-One Laptop Computer program. School officials expect that within the next few years, all students in grades 1-8 will have individual laptops to use in class. The One-to-One Laptop Computer program is largely supported by the Lower School Parents Association. Seen learning how to use their new laptop computers are, first row: Varun Iyengar, Clarks Summit. Second row, from left: Maniyakim Welcome, Kingston; Kristine McCarthy, fourth-grade teacher; Harish Yerra, Wilkes-Barre; and Garrett Larson, West Pittston. Third row: Rachel Swaback, West Pittston.

Wilkes to offer master’s degree in middle level education Wilkes University is launching an online master of science degree in Middle Level Education. Classes start this fall for practicing educators who want to specialize in middle school mathematics or science. The 30-credit degree can be earned completely online. The program was created in response to Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) standards, which require educators to ob-

tain middle level certification to teach middle school mathematics and science. “Our program will prepare teachers for the Praxis II test to earn add-on certification in these subject areas,” said Mary Kropiewnicki, program director and associate professor of education. “We offer a convenient and affordable program that teachers can complete while working full

time.” Teachers in the program will learn instructional strategies and assessment practices appropriate for adolescent learners. It is designed for practicing early childhood, elementary and special education teachers, as well as middle school and secondary teachers with certification in other areas. Additional specialization areas are being developed.

The program includes four core courses and six courses in the specialization area. Fall courses include “Teaching Adolescent Learners in Middle School,” “Mathematical Problem Solving for Middle School Instruction” and “Biology and Life Sciences for Middle School Instruction.” Pennsylvania educators issued an instructional I certificate after

Sept. 22, 2007 can meet new PDE post-baccalaureate credit requirements for Instructional II certification by taking “Teaching Diverse Learners using Inclusive Classroom Practices” and “SAS for Pennsylvania Educators” Both courses are offered in this program. Tuition for the program is $395 per credit. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an

accredited institution, a valid Pennsylvania teaching certificate and meet Wilkes admission requirements. Classes start September 12. More information can be found at www.wilkes.edu/GradEd or by calling (800) WILKES-U Ext. 4241. Teachers with questions can also email the program director at mary.kropiewnicki@wilkes.edu.
