I’m a Mac I dug out the black mock turtle neck shirt I bought in Pittsburgh prior to a Steelers game some years ago and wore it Friday with a pair of jeans as a tribute to Steve Jobs. Why his death weighed so heavy on me I am still trying to figure out, although I seem to be discovering answers little by little. Part of it is the way I heard the news: a phone call from my son Thursday night: “Dad, they announced 24 minutes ago that Steve Jobs has died.” Neither of us could think of anything to say. The call, of course, was made on his iPhone. My son and daughter have never known a world without Macintosh computers. I became “a Mac,” as they say, in 1984 when Wilkes University (thenCollege) invited me to teach an introductory journalism class. It was the year of the famous Super Bowl commercial which introduced the Mac with the bold claim that, because of it,

“1984 won’t be like 1984.” I accepted the job at Wilkes maybe not completely but partly because it was going to be taught for the first time ever in a lab full of Macs. Up to then, journalism was always taught in a classroom on typewriters. But something else gnawed at my heart as I brushed my teeth in front of the TV in my bedroom early Thursday morning, unable to drag myself away from CNN and classic footage of Jobs introducing one culturealtering innovation after another, each time in his trademark black shirt and jeans, and each time growing thinner and thinner. That’s what was getting to me, I soon realized. Looking at Jobs’ emaciated body brought back images of my sister Barbara near the end of her life. From the time she was a toddler, Barbie had been overweight, but in a hospital bed in her final days there was not much left of her. “Be careful

what you wish for,” she told my sister Sheila one day. “I always wanted to be skinny.” In a writing class at the college Thursday afternoon I told the students to spend the next two hours writing anything they wanted based on this prompt: Steve Jobs is dead. How they handled it made me proud. Some were flippant, I must say, with opening sentences like “We lost a lot of jobs lately but this one is different,” or “Apparently an Apple a day doesn’t keep the doctor away,” but some were profound. iMac. iPhone. iPod. iPad. ilove you, Steve Jobs. Liz Baumeister wrote. Her next line was: But sometimes iCurse you. Caught up in a world of email, tweeting and texting, she said she misses writing a letter with a pen and paper, putting it in an envelope with a stamp and dropping it in the mail.

Another student, Cassidy Sherman, wrote that she grew up in an iFamily with the ultimate iDad. Another worked into her article that she cannot write without music plugged into her ears from her iPod and was doing so as she wrote about the guy who invented it. In other classes, I played Steve Jobs’ famous commencement address delivered at Stanford University in 2005. At the time he believed he had conquered the cancer he had been diagnosed with two years earlier. “No one wants to die,” Jobs told the students near the end of his speech. “Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new ...

“Your time is limited,” he continued, “so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” Those words bring to mind another man who lost his life to cancer at a fairly young age, Michael Joyce. I interviewed him just days before his death when the only way he could communicate was by writing on an electronic tablet. The last thing he wrote was: “I’m just going to live until I die.” And that’s what Michael Joyce did. And what Steve Jobs did. And what we all must do. It’s the only way. And a far better tribute than a black shirt and a pair of jeans.

West Pittston hardware store was closed less than 24 hours By Jack Smiles

to a lot of West Pittston home and business owners. On Friday morning, Jeff waded in his hip boots into the store. The buckets they filled were tipped and, of course, their heat and hot water systems were destroyed, but there was no major structural damage and Old Mill Pine was back in business Friday at noon. “We were closed less than 24 hours,” Christine said. “No power, no credit cards. We

were still cleaning out mud, but we were open.” A lot of people affected by the flood were glad they were open and came in to buy hoses, nozzles, mops, gloves, tarps, squeegees, extension cords, flashlights, batteries and sump pumps. Paula Denisco, who lives nearby, came in to get flashlights and batteries and came back day after day to help out. The family stayed in their apartment above the store for

two weeks without power. They were hosted for showers and dinner nightly by friend John Melvin at Ledgeview on Exeter Avenue. Jeff’s extended family was affected in the block below Parke on Exeter Avenue. His mother’s home, two of his brothers’ homes, a woodworking shop and a three-unit apartment building in the original store were flooded. His mother is staying with his sister in Harding.

It’s been a tough year. Jeff’s father and business partner, Ken Holtz, died in April. With power fully restored, Old Mill Pine is back to near normal, albeit with a “Mud Sale” sign outside in the parking lot. Inside, it’s business as usual even as the clean up continues. Jeff echoed a familiar theme in flood stories: “We were blessed with people who helped us. Friends and people we don’t even know.”

hristine Holtz saw the flood waters rise from a unique perspective – lying on the roof of the Old Mill Pine hardware store pointing a flashlight into the store’s front window. Christine and her husband Jeff Holtz – proprietors of the hardware store at 400 Exeter Avenue on the corner of Parke in West Pittston – live above the store with their two “We were daughters closed less Alex, 16, and Samantha, 21. than 24 On that inhours. No famous Thurspower, no day as the river came up credit Jeff, Christine cards. We and Samantha, were still friends Jim and Marion cleaning Ciampi and out mud, neighbor Scott but we Chervenitski were and volunteers they didn’t open.” even know hustled to beat the water. They passed new bicycles out of the store onto a pick up truck bed and then onto the flat roof of the store. They loaded lawn mowers and chain saws into Ciampi’s pick up and hauled them to higher ground. Customers’ lawn mowers, which were in for repairs, went up on picnic tables. They put smaller items from on the lower shelves – from boxes of nails to small tools – into buckets on the floor. Meanwhile their daughter Alex hoarded water upstairs in every available vessel and the bathtub. They worked until 5 p.m. Then they climbed a ladder up to their home. That’s when Christine went out on the roof with her flashlight. Luckily she saw the water stop after rising to only three feet on the first floor. “Only” because she and Jeff said they felt lucky compared

Flood didn’t keep Old Mill Pine out long


Times Leader Correspondent

What’s new or coming soon on Main Street, Pittston? Restaurants, antique and collectible stores, a Boden clothing outlet, signage and facades, sidewalks and period lighting. What’s next? An art gallery. Kathleen Godwin, of Arts YOUniverse, and Mike Burnside, of the Cultural Council of Luzerne County, who are partners of the Arts SEEN Gallery on Public Square in WilkesBarre, are looking forward to opening a similar gallery in downtown Pittston. Burnside said the gallery charges artists $20 per month to display their work and requires they also take part in staffing the store a half-day per month. Artists are then able to keep all money for the sales of their work. He noted this not only makes it possible for artists to sell their artwork, but to be integrated into the spirit of the gallery itself. Burnside said there are still “some numbers to work out” before the Pittston gallery can open.

Burnside said he was originally skeptical about opening up a second gallery in Pittston, but upon touring the site at 71 S. Main St., he thought that it would be a very appropriate spot because of its accessibility to foot traffic and general structure and wall space. He also said Pittston’s Streetscape project will be adding some more lighting and doing some major renovations, which will serve to make it an especially attractive spot for the second gallery. The storefront is between the Coffe Table Restaurant and the Open Space which will be opening soon featuring a Boden clothing outlet. The gallery will accept various types of artwork including photographs, paintings, sculpture, jewelry and even painted furniture. “The vision that both Kathleen and I have is one of accessibility for both local artists and the people of Northeast Pennsylvania,” said Burnside. “We want to support local artists and increase cultural awareness.” Pittston’s Downtown Manager Rose Randazzo said16 artists are on board, but few of them are

Local artists: new South Main gallery wants you


By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

Sidewalk reconstruction on South Main might make getting to New York Pizza Cucina at 74 S. Main next to the Tomato Festival lot a little difficult right now, but if you let it stop you, it’s your loss. The city’s newest restaurant – owned operated by Paul and Linda DePietro on the site of the

city’s oldest bakery – serves menu items made with all fresh ingredients from old family recipes. They make their own dough and meatballs, grind sausage, make chicken fillets and cutlets, and hand cut French fries. The DePietros have three decades of experience in the restaurant business in Ocean City and Salisbury, Maryland and Westchester, New York. They moved here because of

family connections. DePietro’s mother was Jean Bernardi when she grew up in Exeter. “As a kid I

spent summers with my grandmother in Exeter,” Paul said. After his father died last year

DePietro’s mother moved back to the area to Pittston. He has See PIZZA, Page 23

The Wild Irishman, the 1911 Barons and the Baltimore Tunnel By Jack Smiles

Associate Editor

T

o use a 2011 expression to describe a 1911 happening: minor league baseball rocked in Wilkes-Barre a century ago and Wilkes-Barre Barons pitcher James John McCloskey was the city’s rock star. He won 20 games in 1911, following a 17 win season in ’10, and led the Barons to a third consecutive New York State League pennant. McCloskey – a 6-foot, 180 pound right hander – had been born on the frontier in Laramie, Wyoming on August 20, 1882. As the rugged, hard-drinking son of a Colorado coal-miner and with the wellearned nickname “The Wild Irishman” he was a perfect fit for the Wilkes-Barre of 1911, with its coal culture, large Irish population and 170 bars. McCloskey was tagged with the nickname as a pitcher for the International League Baltimore Orioles for his actions off the field – spending most of his nights in the in the city’s red light district – and on the field – getting into numerous fights with opponents and umpires. In Toronto in 1907 he had to be pulled off an umpire by two policemen. As the Baltimore American newspaper described the fight: “Mac’s Irish was up in a moment and the Baltimore slab artist (a nickname for a pitcher) went at the umpire like one possessed.” Though Wilkes-Barre might have been seen as a demotion for a pitcher who had pitched 12 games for the major league Phillies in 1906 and ’07 and won 15 for the Orioles in ’08, McCloskey embraced

Wilkes-Barre and made it his home. In 1911 Wilkes-Barre’s population was near 70,000. The Stegmaier Brewery turned out

150,000 barrels of beer, which was quaffed in large amounts in the city’s ubiquitous bars, many of which were likely McCloskey haunts.

Public drunkenness and rampant crime overwhelmed the city’s 70 fulltime cops, who had no authority over the 50 stores selling guns and knives. One such store on public square displayed revolvers, steel knuckles, black jacks and stilettos in the front window. In May alone the police made over 150 arrests for serious crimes. The streets of Wilkes-Barre were a cacophony of clopping horse hooves, sputtering automobile engines, and clattering trolleys battling for rights of way without the help of traffic signals, stop signs or traffic laws. That spring a four-year-old boy was killed by a grocery wagon and team in front of his house on Washington Street; a six-year-old was rundown by an automobile in front of his house as he played with his friends on South River; a 26-year-old miner was struck and killed in front of the Prospect Breaker on the road to White Haven by a hit-and-run car which sped away toward Wilkes-Barre at the astonishing rate of 50 miles an hour. Fires were a matter of course. Mayor Lewis Kniffen’s funeral parlor and livery stable on North Main went up in a blaze which killed 11 horses and destroyed three funeral coaches. A spectacular series of gasoline explosions and a fire at the Wilkes-Barre Motor Transit Company on Carey Avenue destroyed the building, nine motor vehicles – including two luxury Matheson touring cars owned by a Dr. Guthrie – and a double block home. A fire in a barn behind the county pris-

A recent court decision means police in Massachusetts can no longer search a vehicle based solely on the smell of marijuana. *** New Jersey has a new law that requires palimony agreements, in which people living together but not married, make arrangements for payments after the death of one of the couple, to be made in writing to be recognized by a court. But a New Jersey appellate court has ruled that the requirement for written palimony agreements does not apply to those who filed complaints before the law was adopted. *** Serving liquor at wedding receptions and parties in Michigan is going to be a bit easier now that a new law allows caterers to serve alcohol off-site. Before the new law, caterers with liquor licenses could only serve on their own property. If party-goers wanted booze, they needed to bring it themselves. *** According to current New Hampshire law, “advertising shall not contain any reference to a ‘happy hour’ except that a ‘happy hour schedule’ may be posted within the licensed premises.” *** The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that a young man can be sentenced to life without parole for a 1998 murder he helped commit when he was 14 years old.

OUR OPINION

No wins but no losers Pittston Area athletic teams did not walk off the soccer field in Hughestown Friday afternoon or Charley Trippi Stadium in Yatesville Friday night as victors, but nor were they losers. The soccer team came up short 3 to 1 to Dallas. The football team lost 20 to 14 in overtime to Williamsport. That’s irrefutable. But as Albert Einstein said, “Not all things that count can be counted, and not all things that can be counted count.” Points in an athletic endeavor can be counted. Spirit cannot. Neither can effort. Or support. But, while those things cannot be counted and do not show up on the scoreboard, they cannot be disregarded. There is a new sense of enthusiasm at Pittston Area sporting events this fall. Everyone feels it. The athletes seem to believe in themselves. And it’s obvious their coaches and parents do. Sports, especially high school sports, are often over emphasized. But in healthy school systems, they play a significant role in the development of young people. It has been our experience that schools with sound sports programs also have sound educational programs and sound extra-curricular activities of all sorts. Pittston Area appears headed in that direction. The early Greeks expounded “a strong mind and a strong body.” All those striving for such goals win. Final scores have their place, but that place is more incidental than we realize.

Rest in peace Elwood “Woody” Richards was aptly named. Like the character “Woody” of the Toy Story movies, he was a gentle man of strong character and solid values. Greater Pittston’s “Woody” captured the hearts of the area as he waged a courageous battle with cancer, eventually succumbing on Sept. 21 at the age of 47. He earned his living working for the Pittston City Street Department but he earned everyone’s respect by volunteering with the City Fire Department. He was generous with his time and talent and leaves a void that is hard to fill.

Richards Family appreciates the support and kindness Recently our family lost a husband, father, son, brother and nephew. We wish to thank our wonderful family and friends for their support. We also thank the City of Pittston: the Pittston Fire Department who was with us every step during this time (they were at the hospital, they organized several benefits, they were with us at the end and they are still there for our family); the Pittston City Police Department and Pittston City ambulance and the Street

Department, where he was employed. We thank Msgr. John Bendik, of the St. John the Evangelist Parish community, who was there for our family and helped us keep our faith alive. We also want to thank the doctors and nurses at the cancer hospital at Geisinger for their compassion and kindness. The Richards Family

Says editor has Facebook all wrong Note: this letter was addressed to Ed Ackerman, editor, regarding his column about Facebook. Dear Ed, I have been reading your columns for years. I won’t say how many without aging myself let alone you! Anyway, I don’t remember ever disagreeing with something you said--until now. You’ve got Facebook all wrong. Yes, some people get crazy and bare their souls or engage in TMI (too much information), but have you thought about the other side of the coin? I don’t remember how many years it’s been since I joined Facebook. At first, I too was reluctant. I’m very careful about my

personal information and I didn’t trust this social medium. Then I moved from Pennsylvania to California. Suddenly, all my friends (no quotations--these are my real friends) are 3000 miles away. I can’t call them every day, but guess what? There they are on Facebook! So I know when my friend’s daughter scores a goal or when my cousin needs someone to talk to. I know that my son is studying for a test or going snowboarding. Of course, it works the other way around too. I can’t begin to tell you how comforting it has been to have so many family and friends to support me See FACEBOOK, Page 30


Sad precipitation

ved…when I blew my nose. I discovered the joys of wheel barrowing! You can pack a whole lotta crap in one of those bad boys and just wheel it away! I should’ve used this to transport my babies back in the day. Or my husband’s golf clubs down to the river while it was still moving swiftly and angrily. You can fit so much more in a wheel barrow than a stroller. I know for a fact you can schlep about 12,000 swollen and destroyed books, including a volume of “My Next Husband Will Be a Dog” into a barrow and out to the curb in record time. I felt like Xena the Warrior Princess. Wheel barrows are very empowering. I’m telling you that along with that special aroma of dried muck, sewage and aged perspiration…the smell of Lysol will never leave my nasal cavity. I don’t care how mind-numbing the smell in the bathroom is after my husband has been in there…I will never again, in this lifetime, spray Lysol. My roots! With everything that’s transpired, we chicks become immune to our usual maintenance and upkeep. My roots look like both lanes of the Schuylkill…but I don’t care. The greasy ponytail has made resurgence and my trusty eyeliner hasn’t left its special make-up drawer in four weeks. I would say it’s liberating and cathartic, but really, I just feel like a snot sandwich. Everyone has value. Everyone. People come out of the muddy woodwork to help complete strangers and it’s humbling and miraculous. Members from churches of every denomination banded together to aid in our cleaning and reconstruction and neighbors who weren’t flooded came in droves to offer another set of arms, legs and heart. You don’t feel very lucky to be a West Pittston-ite these days, but I’ll tell you that although this community has been stained and tattered, sometimes beyond repair, it is a community made-up of strong, resourceful, lovely human beings. Among the ruin and the shards of homes, you don’t have to look very far to also find something that makes this community unique, and that is its sense of family, strength and character. The ability to get up and go and just get ‘er done. There are some bumps in the road, to be sure, but the overall picture is one made up of the broad strokes of cooperation and collaboration and support. Into each life a little rain must fall. A disaster of any sort tests the strength of its victims. The helplessness of one of us is daunting; the power of all of us is inimitable. My own strength was a surprise. Although, it could have been the power of that wheel barrow. Or the Dove chocolates. We may never know. Rain or shine, Maria Heck is there to make Dispatch readers smile every other week in this space.

Spaghetti Squash a fall favorite Last week’s column discussed the fall vegetables that are appearing in the vegetable aisle and are still in some farmer markets. Some of these squash look a bit hairy and can be difficult to cut as they are hard and round. The spaghetti squash is one of my favorites because it is low in calories and carbohydrates, yet takes on the flavor of sauces really well. This squash is a little unusual. It is shaped like a small watermelon, but golden-yellow in color. It has a mild, nutlike flavor and when cooked the flesh separates in strands like spaghetti. Cooking spaghetti squash

Here is how to cook a spaghetti squash. First, purchase a 2-pound squash or more if you like leftovers. This should be enough for two people. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Place the cut side down in a baking dish; add 1/4 cup of water. Bake at 350˚F for 45-60 minutes or until you can pierce the shell easily with a fork. Allow to cool slightly; using a fork, separate squash into strands that resemble spaghetti. Microwave instructions

Spaghetti squash can also be cooked in the microwave. This is the way I like to cook it because it’s fast and I do not need to turn the oven on. First, cut it in half remove the seeds, just like you were to put it in the oven. Next place it upside down in a covered microwave safe dish. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the dish. Microwave on high 10 to 12 minutes. It is that easy! Serving spaghetti squash

To serve, place 1 cup on plate, add 1/2 cup pasta. Ladle your favorite spaghetti sauce over both. Enjoy without the guilt of eating too much pasta! One cup contains only 40 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrates. Other ways to use spaghetti squash

Toss cooked spaghetti squash with diced chicken and your favorite low fat cheese sauce, and then bake for a filling entrée.

I used to love rainstorms. Really. Rain makes me happy. Made me happy. Now it just scares the crap out of me. Now rain makes me sad and cranky. Rain is the devil. We were extremely lucky to dodge the proverbial bullet…the water stopped a block from our home. I think it was my voice which created a sound barrier that even water cannot penetrate. Everyone I know, including my father, was not so lucky, however. My beloved library was effectively wiped out like a shaken-up Etch-a-Sketch. Gone. Although…by some miracle, our bag of Dove chocolates, hidden high above the books, survived. Who cares if they got a little moist and…uh… icky, I ate them all, post flood. Small blessings! Although I did my small part to help clean-out the library…I otherwise was not personally affected. In 1972, however, I was, supremely up-heaved and swept-away by that bitch, Agnes. And I will tell you, the instant your nose sniffs the scent of flood waters, like an aqua-inspired blood hound, you are transported back to that time and place like you never escaped. That is a smell you never forget and it invites a feeling of doom that you can never shake. That’s why I cry on all of your behalf. And…the catastrophic scenarios continue. I don’t have to tell you about it because you are living it. I won’t insult you with my insider knowledge, because I have none. Except to say that I’ve noticed a few things during flood-time that I’ve found to be of the most profound interest and intrigue. For example: Some people lose weight during a crisis. Not me. There was so much food coming from all corners of the borough, that it would be rude not to have my hand out! There was food being delivered directly to doorsteps! It’s like Jenny Craig, but with carbohydrates! Homemade mashed potatoes and piggies? I would sell a kidney. Bring. It. On. My father has been living with me for several weeks now. He thinks he’s an imposition, but it’s almost like having another child to harass. He’s actually much easier than my kids, neater than my husband by a country mile and best of all…he can’t hear me when I’m bitching! He is mostly the perfect houseguest, if he could just cook, clean, iron, fold, Swiffer, sanitize and wax my mustache. There’s still time, though. I have hope. And enough wax to strip every hair from every monkey at the Philadelphia Zoo. Cleaning orifices during the flood clean-up is an experience to behold. After plunging a Q-tip into the deepest recesses of my ear canal (which is a hygiene don’t), guess what exited? A treeful of Keebler elves. It’s true. With Pecan Sandies, to boot. Also...the mystery of Jimmy Hoffa has been sol-

Peeking into the past

Question #1 In 1954, Pittston celebrated its Centennial, which included a special dinner, pageant, parade and carnival. With Judy Minsavage Who was the mayor of Pittston at the time? 1954 – 57 Years Ago Exeter High School formed a Glee Club consisting of 45 juniors and seniors. Under the direction of Ross Tarantino, the singers practiced every day to perfect their performances of songs such as “I Believe,” “America” and “Piping Tim of Galway.” Captain Mary C. Connors, Pittston, was awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service in military operations in Korea supervising medical wards of the 21st Station Hospital in 1953. Captain Connors also received the American Theater, European Theater, World War II Victory, Korean, United Nations and National Defense Service Medals for serving 20 months overseas during World War II. Nurses were the only military women allowed into combat areas during this war serving in Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals or MASH units. Sponsor Rudy Berretta, of Berretta Construction, and Manager Edward Modlesky, were very proud of their Exeter Little League team as they took the championship in 1954. Members of the team were Martin Napersteck, Charles Kutyana, Carmen Mauriello, Earl Blossi, John Modleskly, Leonard Vincko, Thomas Kuharchik, Ray Fino, Louis Braccini, Richard Davala, Mike Latzko and Daniel Ripa Jr. General Chairman Anthony D’Iorio announced that the income remaining after expenses from planned events that occurred during the Pittston City Centennial celebration week totaled $3,341.56. According to dollartimes.com/calculator, $3,000.00 in 1954 had the same buying power as $24,443.75 in 2011. Annual inflation over this period was 3.75%.

1974 – 37 Years ago Pittston Area School District Supervisor of Nurse and Health Services Ursula Burke, RNMS, announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Health mandated that all children entering school must be immunized. Epidemics of diphtheria, tetanus, polio, and German measles had been on the rise and the number of children vaccinated on the decline. Mandatory vaccination laws were first enacted in Massachusetts with the small pox vaccination law in 1809. Currently immunization for eight specific diseases is required for children entering school: tetanus, diphtheria, polio, measles, mumps, German measles, hepatitis B, and chickenpox. The new building site for the Greater Pittston Ambulance Association was chosen, but there was a lot of preparation work to do. Volunteers Matt Martinelli, who operated his payloader, and Leonard Cumbo supervised the project. Frank DePhillips, Frank Castellino, Mr. and Mrs. George Nagy, Frank Rizzo, Louis Alexander and Anthony Fonzo along with Leo Latona, Joseph Martino, Joseph Bernardi, Eddie Kaminski, and John Oliver, donated their services to expedite site preparations. According to the City of Pittston Web-

Question #2 In 1974, an article in the Sunday Dispatch contained the statement, “Maybe Greater Pittston should get on the bandwagon.” What was the writer referring to? 1984 – 27 Years Ago Pittston native Captain Fred R. Demech Jr., US Navy, was honored for his service in the White House. Presented the Distinguished Service Medal by Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger, Demech was honored for outstanding service as Executive Director for the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board from 1981 to 1984. Other medals bestowed Captain Demech are Legion of Merit, Defense Meritorious Service, Navy Meritorious and Navy Commendation. Captain Demech served in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans and all continents except Australia. President Dwight D. Eisenhower created the President’s Board of Consultants on Foreign Intelligence Activities in 1956. President John F. Kennedy later renamed it the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board on May 4, 1961. Kathy Forlenza, president of the West Pittston Lioness Club, and officers Betty Kasulanis, Marge Burns, Gail Devers, Sandy Cassarella, Louise Hood, Doris Brinser, Mildred Bainbridge and Ceil Freed had planned an ambitious year of service. Club focus was to promote educational programs and provide health equipment for those in need. The group host-

ed an eye bank fundraiser and donated three print Braille books to the West Pittston Library. The Jacquelines Association held an installation for new officers: Ursula Burke, President; Dorothy Delaney, vice president; Leona Klocko, corresponding secretary; Mary Burns, recording secretary and Alice Burke, treasurer. The Jacquelines are an auxiliary association to the Pittston Knights of Columbus. 1994 – 17 Years Ago Today is the 17th anniversary of the unveiling of the six-ton granite monument dedicated to Leonard C. Insalaco II, two year veteran of West Pittston Hose Company #1 and six year veteran, John F. Lombardo, fire captain with Niagara Engine Company #2. Both men lost their lives as they bravely fought side by side at a fire on North Main Street. Members from both hose companies formed a benefit committee. Louis Calabrese and Joe Jumper, were among the initial organizers of the project. The monument, which is located on Kennedy Boulevard, is less than 300 feet from the location of the fire that claimed their lives. Since then, the former Water Street Bridge, located near the monument, has been renamed Firefighters Memorial Bridge. The First Valley Bank, West Pittston offered an exhibition of artwork created by deceased residents of the area. Artwork included paintings by Charles B. Zimmerman, 1900-1994; wood sculpture by Raymond M. Pambianco, 1929-1994; contemporary artist Joseph A. Reina, 1932-1993; Filomeno Argenio 1885-1968; Lawrence Argenio, 1917-1964 and Paul J. Argenio, 19241990. It was written of these men, “To remember artists of the past is man’s way of preserving history and it is with deep gratitude that these men are remembered for their great contribution to the art world.” Answer #1 In 1954, during the Pittston Centennial celebration, Joseph F. Saporito, was serving as Mayor of Pittston. He served until 1956. According to the Pittston City website the list of city mayors is as follows: Charles Calvin Bowman, 1886, became a U.S. Representative after leaving See PEEKING, Page 23

1964 – 47 Years Ago A steel frame that held letters identifying the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Railroad or Laurel Line was removed from the location it had held for decades. The Laurel Line Station was located

on Market Street and the sign stood at the corner of Market and South Main. The demolition removed the last remnant of the once busy station. Mrs. Wilbert Lawler, co-founder and president of United Mothers of America, a Pittston City decency watchdog group, led two busloads of women to the Vote for Decency Rally held in Scranton. The rally attended by over 2,000 people helped initiate an ordinance against obscenity in Scranton. Rev. Constantine Siconoffi, Msgr. Matthew Boylan, Gino Marchetti, Victor Brandolino and Charles J. Golden were among several men of St. Cecilia’s Church in Exeter who wanted to do something nice for the nun’s serving the parish. The men planned to solicit homes of parishioners to raise funds to purchase a car for the sisters’ personal use.

site, “The Ambulance Association was formed in 1952 by community-minded volunteers, who recognized the need for professional care in the Pittston area.” The Association began with one ambulance unit that, for many years, was housed in the basement garage of City Hall. Currently the Association operates Medic 29 an advanced life support unit that is one of the first in northern Luzerne County. Workmen from Frati Sand and Stone of Wyoming began grading a ten-acre tract of land in Hughestown. The borough planned a five-tier project for a community park which would include football and baseball fields, basketball and tennis courts and playground facilities. New playground equipment was installed this past July. The borough’s picnic in the park is held annually at the location named in honor of Robert W. Yaple.

Answer #2 An article in the October 1974 issue of the Sunday Dispatch entitled “Festivals and Fairs Everywhere but Here” stated: Festivals have sprung up all over the Midwest. Many attract tourist dollars and get communities on the map. They bring people together, and create a worthwhile tradition. Anything that can bring pleasure and clean fun to communities adds to their attractiveness. Maybe Greater Pittston should get on the bandwagon. Today, many churches, organizations and fair committees sponsor numerous events each year in the Greater Pittston Area. The Pittston Tomato Festival celebrated its 28th anniversary in August of 2011. The May 2011 issue of Parade Magazine highlighted the Pittston Tomato Festival in its national publication. I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. Michelangelo

The Wild Irishman

on killed two cows and a horse. But there was respite from all the chaos and mayhem. The Lehigh Valley Railroad ran Sunday excursions to New York for $2.50. The Times Leader advertised a cruise to Bermuda from New York City on the Bermudian – a new ship equipped with electric fans and wireless telegraphy – starting at $20, two week’s pay for the average laborer lucky enough to have a full time job. The Polis Theater brought in top vaudeville acts like Del Franco and his trained troupe of monkeys, dogs and ponies; and Lolo, an American Indian woman who did blindfolded feats of mental telepathy, jugging, and sharpshooting. Then, across the Market Street Bridge on a verdant patch of green in the state-ofthe art Diamond Park folks could get away from it all and watch their Wild Irishman lead the two-time champion WilkesBarre Barons to yet another pennant. Diamond Park was only two years old in 1911 having opened in May of 1909 five days before the opulent new Luzerne County Courthouse. The park was owned and built by the team officers – President James Monks, Secretary Ellis and Treasurer George Stegmaier – and was considered the finest Class B park in the country. The 1909 attendance of 121,000 was considered a record for Class B Leagues and it had fallen off only slightly by 1911. McCloskey had been signed by the Phillies after the 1905 season when he won 18 games and pitched 333 innings for Omaha in the class A Western League, the equivalent of AAA today. His major league career was brief, perhaps undermined by his hard drinking as he was often described after a poor outing as being “out of shape” or conversely as a top-flight pitcher “when right.” In 1906, splitting time with Providence of the Eastern League and the Phillies, he won 15 for Providence and was 3-2 with the Phillies with a 2.85 ERA. While McCloskey’s hard partying might have soured the Phillies on him, his reputation didn’t bother the Eastern League owners. As the Baltimore American newspaper put it in a 1907 story, “Several clubs are hot after McCloskey who was considered the best pitcher in the Eastern League last season.” In June of 1907 Baltimore manager Jack Dunn went to Philadelphia determined to buy McCloskey for the Orioles. From the Baltimore American: “It was no easy task to land McCloskey for it was not until he made a very attractive offer did the manager of the Phillies consent to let Dunn have the twirler at a fancy figure.” The “fancy figure” was probably

At 6:50 on the morning of June 5, 1919 McCloskey was in a trip of mine cars descending into the Baltimore Tunnel when one of the cars hit a dangling live wire setting off an explosion of seven kegs, about 300 pounds, of powder.

around $2500. McCloskey won 14 and 15 games for the Orioles in ’07 and ’08. In July of ’09 Dunn and the Orioles loaned McCloskey to the Wilkes-Barre Barons with the right of recall on demand. In his first start for the Barons McCloskey’s famous temper exploded and he got tossed from the game in the second inning. In his next two starts he threw shutouts allowing only five hits combined. He was 3-1 on August 2 when the Orioles, facing three consecutive double headers, recalled him. Barons Manager Kettridge lobbied hard to get him back, but McCloskey finished the season in Baltimore. In 1910 McCloskey came back to the Barons, now under new manager Bill Clymer, with no strings and won 17 games including a no-hitter against Scranton as the Barons won a second straight pennant. He also won an exhibition game in Wilkes-Barre against the world champion Philadelphia As, albeit Philly used only three regular players. In 1911 McCloskey won 20. His home starts regularly drew an extra 200 to 300 fans to Diamond Park, many of them women. While New York State League rules set player salaries at $150 per month there were ways to pad that and a popular player like McCloskey could also count on perks like reduced rent, free suits, overlooked bar tabs and stabbed dinner checks. After the Barons clinched the pennant in early September of 1911, manager Clymer gave McCloskey the last two weeks of with pay and the fans presented him with an inscribed gold-plated pocket watch. McCloskey went back home to Cripple Creek, Colorado, after the 1911 season, but right after New Year’s Day he came back to Wilkes-Barre after seven days riding trains. Though McCloskey declared himself fit and predicted a fourth consecutive pennant for the Barons in 1912, the season turned out to be a disaster. After a win on opening day on April 26, McCloskey got hammered in Binghamton on May 5. He didn’t pitch again until

May 28. Claiming arm and finger injuries, he missed most of June. He made a “comeback” on July 5 where he showed his old form, but had a run-in with Clymer and was suspended for two weeks. Clymer gave him 10 days “to get in shape” after the suspension, but when he reported in poor condition he was suspended again and fined $100. When McCloskey heard Clymer wasn’t going to pay him for the 10 days, he went crazy. During a game in Diamond Park, he went across the field and sat in the Elmira dugout shouting curses at Clymer until the umpire had him removed. Then he went to the clubhouse looking for the business manager and “suffering from an overdose of liquor,” according to a newspaper story, tried to break down the door. Clymer suspended McCloskey indefinitely and declared he would never wear the Wilkes-Barre uniform again. But in 1913 Clymer was gone and new manager Bill Noonan gave McCloskey another shot. It was reported that McCloskey was “working like a Trojan,” was taking care of himself and was in better shape than he had been in years. Nonetheless, he was released by the Barons on May 27 and signed by Binghamton. He lobbied for a chance to pitch against the Barons, but that didn’t happen and Binghamton released him on July 5. In 1914 the Wild Irishman was tamed by a teenaged Wilkes-Barre girl. On April 15 he married 19-year-old Kathleen Donahue. He was 30. His bride was the daughter of Squire John Donohue, the city’s third ward justice. Renowned for his unique and colorful decisions, he once settled a dispute between to women over ownership of a female duck by having the women bring their male ducks to court to see which duck would go to the female. McCloskey and his bride bought a house on North Empire Street. In 1916 they had a daughter. Though on his marriage application McCloskey listed his occupation as “ballplayer,” he was done as

a professional pitcher in1914. He got a job with the railroad and pitched for the Boyle Brothers, a top amateur team, hurling a no-hitter with nine strikeouts against Newtown. Laid off by the railroad, McCloskey got his miner’s certificate and got a job at the Baltimore Tunnel in Wilkes-Barre’s East End. At 6:50 on the morning of June 5, 1919 McCloskey was in a trip of mine cars descending into the Baltimore Tunnel when one of the cars hit a dangling live wire setting off an explosion of seven kegs, about 300 pounds, of powder. Ninety-three men were killed – blown apart, burned, smothered by gas or drowned in a trench of sulfur water – in the second deadliest mine accident in anthracite history. James John McCloskey was among them. In the newspaper the next morning, a miner named Kehoe described what he saw as he scrambled to escape: He struggled on when he encountered a man who held out his hand in appeal to him and found it to be McCloskey, the baseball player. He had been frightfully burned and his tongue was so swollen that he could not talk, although he made an effort to do so. He said he took hold of him and attempted to carry him out but he could not. He said McCloskey was near death but had the strength to give him his brotherhood book and papers in it. At this point McCloskey became delirious and grabbed Kehoe by the throat and it was with considerable effort that he was able to pry the man’s fingers loose. Like many of the men killed, McCloskey was buried in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Hanover. As though his death wasn’t tragic enough, there was a gruesome footnote. Two weeks after the disaster, McCloskey’s gold-plated pocket watch, which he always carried with him, was found by police in a jewelry store where it had been pawned. The watch had been a gift from his fans in 1911 and was inscribed: “James John McCloskey, pitcher for the Wilkes-Barre Barons, which won the pennant in the years 1910-1911.” Jack Smiles, associate editor of the Sunday Dispatch, has authored three books on baseball players from Greater Pittston who are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York: Hughie Jennings, of Pittston, Bucky Harris of Hughestown, and “Big Ed” Walsh, of Plains.


From outside signs to name tags, Y keeps improving

The three multicolored “Y” signs adorning the front of the Greater Pittston YMCA on Main Street in Pittston are the first indication that growth and change are beginning at the Pittston organization. “The new ‘Y’ The subtle signs not only improvements make us more come with new visible in the Executive Director Craig community Lukatch who is where we striving to make the YMhave long CA and its emstanding ployees more roots, but visible in the also promote community the new YMCA and the Main Street facility branding immore aesthetiage that is cally pleasing taking place for members. across the “We are situated in the nation.” heart of Pittston, but our building was not distinguishable as a YMCA from the Main Street,” he said. “The new ‘Y’ signs not only make us more visible in the community where we have long standing roots, but also promote the new YMCA branding image that is taking place across the nation.” The improvements do not end with the exterior of the YMCA building. Lukatch invites members and area residents to step inside the

Greater Pittston YMCA to see the changes unfolding. Members will now be greeted by YMCA staff wearing name badges with the new “Y” logo. The badges step up security in the building and make employees more visible and accessible to members. “We have multiple staff members on hand throughout the day and evening and I wanted them to be visible to members,” he said. “If there is a question or concern, members need to know who they can talk too. We want to make the members’ time at the Y enjoyable and we want to excel in customer service.” The Wellness Center at the Pittston Facility is also getting a redesign and some new additions. “We are redesigning the space for a better flow and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance,” said Lukatch. “Our long term goal is to move the program office and a fitness attendant station in the Wellness Center.” Program/Fitness Director Kelly McCabe plans to staff the Wellness Center with fitness attendants during peak hours. Students interested in doing an internship at the YMCA as a fitness attendant should contact McCabe at 570-655-2255 ext. 104. “The fitness attendants will not only keep the center clean and organized, but they will be on hand to help new members learn how to use the fitness ma-

chines, helping them to feel more comfortable and at ease,” she said. Lukatch noted that improvements are also being made to the organization’s Multipurpose Room – which is home to the Child Care Department’s School Age Program. “New tables and chairs have been purchased with funding from a JcPenny Grant,” said Child Care Director Suzanne Alba. “The new furniture will allow ample space for youths to do their homework and participate in games and crafts.” Next on the list: a new lifeguard station in the facility’s newly refurbished indoor pool area. “Plans for the lifeguard station are underway and soon lifeguards will wear ‘lifeguard’ t-

shirts and carry buoys while on duty,” said Lukatch. “Again, we want our lifeguards to be more visible to swimmers, giving everyone in the pool area an added sense of

safety.” The Greater Pittston YMCA is located at 10 North Main St. in Pittston. For more information, call the Y at 570-655-2255.

Facebook Continued from Page 14

and my husband when we recently had a setback. None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for Facebook. Another great part of Facebook is the ability to connect with old friends, classmates and relatives that you haven’t seen in years. I am close to my cousin in Florida. Before we found each other on Facebook, we didn’t talk at all. I have a young cousin who is an entertainer and I am able to keep up on his career (and him) on Facebook. In fact, I met him through Facebook. I would never know him if I didn’t find him there. Facebook also has given me the opportunity to make new friends. I’m not sure if you know Fred-

YO U R O P I N I O N dy Loquasto, but his son Jonny is a comedian in Los Angeles. Through Facebook I was able to connect with him, go to his show and meet him. It’s always great to find people from Northeastern PA living near you in Southern California. Sometimes I just go on Facebook to look at pictures of friends and family. It’s so nice to be able to keep up with people this way. I’m always surprised when I see kids my sons went to school with and they are grown men now. It’s comforting to know that so many people I knew for so many years are just a mouse click away. One more thing, Ed…do you realize what an important part Facebook played in the recent flood? Everyone was able to keep in contact with each other, share vital information and comfort and console each other. A prime example was Mayor Cassandra Coleman from Exeter. She updated her Facebook page

consistently through the flood and was able to disseminate information to the public quickly and easily. People could ask her (or others) questions and she could quickly get help for someone in need. I spent hours scouring Facebook to check on friends and family. Facebook provided a way for thousands of people to send positive light, prayers and love to thousands in trouble during the flood. The flood was unique, but people reaching out to help other people through Facebook are not. This is common. Facebook has allowed the whole world to become a community. It has allowed people who live on opposite sides of the world to become friends. It has enhanced the way we communicate and I think that’s a good thing! I really think you should give Facebook another look. Caroline Mazurkivich

Commends teenager’s help Gouldsboro Teenager, Mariana Azevedo, got involved as a volunteer to help elderly disabled man Tom Bauman as his family sought help to clean up his Tunkhannock home that was devastated by flooding from TS Lee with water to his roof. Mariana and her Mom Margy with the help of Carl Pacholec, Alan Nawrocki, and Calvin Pacholec all came to help the family of Tom Bauman. She had a community service project to do for her Gouldsboro Soccer Team and could have chosen a lesser feat. They logged onto the disaster assistance web site where the family had posted a help request. Mariana saw the ad and knew it was the one she wanted to help with. The Bauman’s needed help and after a phone conversation the families met at the flooded home on Black Diamond Beach

On Friday, September 30, at midnight, I received a call at home, my storefront window was broken. As I live 45 minutes away, I was extremely worried about the safety and condition of my store, Sabatelle’s Market on S. Main Street, Pittston. As my son, Jason, and I arrived we were pleased to see the Pittston Police in front of our store and a few neighbors waiting until we arrived to secure the window and our building. We are fortunate to have such an excellent police force and are so proud to be part of the Greater Pittston community. A sincere Thank You.

Anderika Race Team to appear on ESPN today Duryea-based car reached semis at Maple Grove

By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Some guys go fishing. Others hunt. Chuck Anderika races funny cars. In the Top Fuel racing world of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), most race teams are professionally owned and operated. But the Duryea-based Anderika Race Team is an independent one, and racing is just a hobby for the veteran car owner and his crew. A successful hobby. The Duryea resident – along with his crew of brother and driver John Anderika of Wyoming, fuel chief Frank Kalinowski of Ringtown, and crew members Ron Pesontini and Billy Wruble of Duryea, and Kyle Wruble of Suscon – advanced their East Coast Auto Electric Top Alcohol Funny Car to the Uni-Select Auto Plus NHRA Nationals Funny Car semifinals last weekend at the Maple Grove Raceway outside of Reading. The national event will be

shown today at 3 p.m. on ESPN2. “It is basically a hobby, but it is also a competitive sport,” said the 60-year old owner of East Coast Auto Electric which builds alternators and starters at its location in Duryea. “We have fun with it.” The Anderika Race Team has more than just fun. The group has had a successful season, finishing the 2011 season in the Top 25 of Top Alcohol Funny Car points in the entire country. At Maple Grove, John Anderika drove the East Coast Funny Car to wins over two top-five cars in the country with wins over Mickey Ferro and Tony Bartone in the first two rounds. In the semis, the Anderika Race Team turned in its best time of the weekend with a 5.58 e.t. at 254 mph. “We have been racing this car since 2006, and this is our second time in the semifinals… first time at Maple Grove,” said Chuck Anderika. “We have progressed from years ago and kept

moving up in class. The only thing left is Nitro. But that is for the professionals.” Anderika refers to the race teams that run Top Alcohol Funny Cars for a living. According to the veteran racer, “many don’t have to go to work on Mondays.” Anderika owns one of the few independent teams among

the 80 Top Alcohol Funny Car teams on the circuit. “We have been on ESPN a number of times before, and it is always is a good feeling to get as far as we did when you start with 23 competitive cars – especially as an independent,” said Anderika. “A lot of the cars we are competing against are spon-

sored cars. We are running against some big bucks, some millionaires. The guy who won the race last weekend is sponsored by a country. Imagine that. “At Englishtown (NJ) we finished fourth. The three guys ahead of us were sponsored by a country, a billionaire and a multi-millionaire.”

Matthews finishes fifth, qualifies for East Regional Defending district and state champion finishes three shots off pace By Tom Robinson

“I thought, ‘If you don’t birdie one of the next two holes, you’re not going to make it,’ ” Matthews said. “On 8, I hit two good shots. “It like having a 2000-pound weight lifted off my shoulders.” Matthews used his birdie-par finish to wind up in a three-way tie for third, three shots behind Brown and Medico. Brown raced out to the early lead. He started on 2 and had birdies there, as well as at 5, 6, 8 and 12. He was 3-under just seven holes into the day.

Pittston Area's Brandon Matthews watches his second shot on 17 hit the green at Elmhurst CC on Wednesday.

Defending district and state champion Brandon Matthews of Pittston Area was one of only two Wyoming Valley Conference players among the eight boys and four girls who qualified for the PIAA East Regional Oct. 17 at Golden Oak Golf Club in Fleetwood last week at the District 2 Golf Championships at Elmhurst Country Club. Matthews shot 37-36-39 (112) to finish fifth overall. Holy Redeemer’s Mariano Medico was the other WVC player to qualify, losing in a one-hole playoff for

the district title with champion Ryan Brown of Scranton Prep. A total of 82 boys played 18 holes to get into the top 15 scores before playing nine more to determine the district title and the regional qualifiers. Matthews matched Medico’s 73 to enter the extra nine one stroke behind Brown and Greg Reeves of Lakeland. Before long, Matthews went from trying to defend his district title to just wanting to be sure he protected a chance to defend his state championship. Three-putts on 2, 3 and 5 and a wildly long approach shot on 6 changed his goals.

O’Brien finds new ways to score for WA Junior returns INT, punt for TDs in 44-17 win over Meyers By Matt Page

Dispatch Correspondent

Nick O’Brien and is getting used to spending a lot of time in the endzone. However, it wasn’t on offense that the Wyoming Area all-purpose back dazzled fans on Friday night. Rather it was defense and special teams that O’Brien used to steal the show as he and his Warrior teammates were able to shutdown the Meyers offense on their way to a 44-17 victory in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2A game on the turf at WilkesBarre Memorial Stadium. O’Brien scored four times, twice on offense and once on defense and special teams, as the Warriors jumped out to a 44-3 halftime lead and then coasted as the Green Machine defense held the Mohawks to just 67 yards in the first half, helping the offense start 7-of-8 possessions in Meyers territory. "(Nick’s playmaking ability) is contagious," said Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer. "He’s bringing his teammates with him, and it’s not just him. He’s got a lot of other kids hungry to make plays now and they’ve been able to make some plays and their confidence is growing as well." As usual, O’Brien got the ball moving for the Warriors early when his first touch resulted in him running for 20 yards into the Mohawk end of the field. From there, he went for six more before Matt Kintz ran for 10 yards to the 11-yard line. Jeff Skursky went for eight, one and one before Kintz lowered his shoulder and plowed his way through a pile and into the endzone for a 1-yard score to put Wyoming Area ahead, 7-0, less than three minutes into the game after the extra-point by AJ Lenkaitis. With the Mohawks facing a third-and-8 from their own 22, the Meyers’ quarterback Teaguen Labatch dropped back and lofted a pass over the middle. O’Brien was waiting. The junior defensive back jumped the route and picked off See NEW, Page 50

Blue Devils smash Montrose in LFC opener OF scores on first four possessions in 45-6 rout of Meteors By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

It took just 15 plays for the Old Forge offense to take control of its Lackawanna Football Conference Division III opener with Montrose on Friday night at Meteors Stadium. It took just one for the Warren Welsh and the Blue Devils defense to put the game out of reach. Welsh returned an interception for Old Forge’s fourth touchdown of the opening quarter as the Blue Devils rolled over Montrose, 45-6, to keep the Meteors winless and move atop the division standings. The Blue Devils scored on just its third play from scrimmage as Brian “Bubba” Tomasetti sprinted 19 yards to the pylon for a 6-0 lead just 1:13 into the game. The score was set up by a 22-yard strike from quarterback Colin Carey to wideout Dave Argust on first down, and a bruising 12-yard run by tailback Lou Febbo as Old Forge (1-0 LFC, 4-2 overall) picked up first downs on its first three snaps. The defense did not waste any time getting in gear either, as sophomore middle linebacker Jorden Sekol made stops on first and second down before the Blue Devils front four forced an incompletion on third down. Sekol led the Big Blue Wrecking Crew with seven tackles on the night, including four for a loss and a sack. All told, Old Forge recorded 13 TFLs on the night against the inept Montrose offense. Pressure on the ensuing Montrose punt forced just a 5-yard punt, and Old Forge took over on the Meteors 34 with 8:59 on the first-quarter clock. Three

plays later, Febbo started right, cut back left, and sprinted to the endzone for a 21-yard touchdown. Carey hit sophomore tight end Shane Schuback for the two-point conversion, and Old Forge led 14-0 with 7:58 left in the first. Another three-and-out series by Montrose resulted in a 9-yard punt, and once again Old Forge had outstanding field position to begin its third drive of the night. The Blue Devils gained two first downs to the Montrose 13, but the Meteors stopped Febbo for a 4-yard loss before sacking Carey for a 13-yard loss to set up third-and-27 from the Montrose 30. But Old Forge proved its metal as Carey scrambled out of the pocket before jetting down the Blue Devils sideline all the way to the endzone for the third touchdown of the game. Matt Mancuso’s kick was short, but Old Forge was in command, 20-0, with 3:12 on the clock. Montrose gained its first, first down in its ensuing possession, but after Sekol and Tony DeSando stopped Montrose running back Nick Ely on first down for no gain, Welsh picked off Jordan Dibble’s pass in the flat off a deflection and followed some key blocks to paydirt for the 49-yard touchdown return. Mancuso’s kick was true, and the Blue Devils led 27-0 with 38 seconds left in the opening stanza. The defensive domination continued as Montrose netted minus-4 yards on its next possession as Sekol and crew harassed the Meteors in the backfield

But Northwest’s Taylor Perlis scored the game’s only goal in the first half to keep the Lady Rangers on top of the division. The game saw only seven shots on goal – three of those by Pittston Area (4-1). Ariel Ardo stopped two shots in goal for the Lady Patriots. Northwest’s Alivia Womelsdorf did one better, stopping

the five-yard line. Two-plays later, lined up at quarterback, O’Brien called his own number from oneyard out for the TDand a 38-3 lead. The ensuing possession for the Mohawks went backwards and they were forced to punt as the Warrior D was in the backfield on every play. The punt rolled out of bounds at the 20 with 23.6 seconds left, giving O’Brien and the explosive Warrior offense time to do more damage. The first play saw O’Brien hit Schmitz in the flat and Schmitz picked up some extra yards when he juked the first defender then hit the second with a stiff arm, before being dragged down to the twoyard line. A bad snap to O’Brien forced him to scramble to pick the ball up off the ground before he calmly hit a wide-open Schmitz in

the endzone with 6.5 seconds left pushing the lead to 44-3. The Warriors defense held the Mohawks to back-to-back fourand-outs to start the second half, however the offense turned the ball over on three consecutive possessions and the Mohawks scored on their final two possessions as the Warriors were able to use that big lead to hold on for the 44-17 victory. "Nick is somebody who week in and week out brings his lunch pale and as athletic and dynamic as he is, he’s always looking for those little things. Offensively he’s been consistent there, you saw a little bit on special teams and defensively also," said Spencer. "Once we got settled in, our kids ran to the ball pretty well and made some plays defensively."


Rally falls short as Patriots lose in OT Pittston Area drops 20-14 game to Williamsport

PA's Anthony Schwab throws a pass to Mike Chisdock (22) as John Ameen (57) blocks.

The Millionaires could have attempted the extra point which, if converted would have given Williamsport a 16-7 lead. However, they decided to go for the two-point conversion for the second time in the game. The play was the same, but the result was much different as Miller was crushed before getting to the end zone. Stopping the Millionaires attempt for the two-point conversion proved to be huge for the Patriots as the result kept the score within reach at 14-7. The Patriots began their game tying drive on the 40, because the Millionaires kicker kept it on the ground to keep the ball away from the Patriots return trio of Jordan Houseman, Kyle Gattuso, and Ron Dellisio. Joe Giambra dove on the ball on the 40 and the Patriots began their drive. Pittston Area ran into trouble as they were faced with fourthand-inches from the 49, but Schwab again maneuvered his way through the line gaining the first down. He then found Houseman for a 12-yard reception for another first down and the Patriots were in business. Schwab completed yet another pass for a first down on fourth-and-3 from the 30 yard line before finding Houseman again for five yards. The senior signal-caller then commanded his offense to the line of scrimmage where he spiked the ball stopping the clock at 1:06. When Schwab was on his way to get the play call from Barrett, a Williamsport player blatantly tripped him right in front of the referee. The flag was thrown and the Patriots now had a firstand-10 from the Williamsport 12. Schwab and Houseman connected yet again for another first down, and after another spike stopped the clock, the playmaking-duo hooked up again. With 53.2 seconds on the clock and a third-and goal from the two, Schwab found Houseman in the endzone for the touchdown to cap the 60-yard See HOUSEMAN, Page 56

Pittston Area's Kyle Gattuso celebrates his touchdown.

A furious fourth quarter comeback went for naught as Pittston Area lost to Williamsport in overtime, 20-14, in a Wyoming Valley Conference affair on Friday night at Charley Trippi Stadium in Yatesville. The Patriots came out strong with their ground attack to start the night, moving the ball inside Millionaires territory before facing a fourth-and-1 from the 31-yard line with nine minutes remaining in the first quarter. First-year head coach Mike Barrett kept his offense on the field and had quarterback Anthony Schwab keep the snap and bulldoze his way through the line for just enough for the first down. Schwab’s strong legs proved to be huge, because on the very next play freshman running back Kyle Gattuso broke free of the Millionaires defense for a 30-yard touchdown. Chris Musto added the PAT and the Patriots led 7-0 with 8:23 remaining in the first quarter. The Patriots first touchdown of the night seemed to fire up the Millionaires offense as they came out on the very next drive and took the lead. Williamsport quarterback Sadiq Burkholder connected with Sam Person for a 46-yard touchdown reception. The Millionaires decided to try the twopoint conversion and it paid off as Devin Miller took the halfback pitch and ran to the far corner of the end zone. The Williamsport lead was 8-7 with 7:25 remaining in the first quarter. After both teams provided some mid-quarter offensive fireworks in the first, they failed to score again until the fourth quarter. The Millionaires found the end zone with 3:15 remaining in the final quarter of regulation as Miller broke loose for a 28-yard jaunt on first-and-10 from the Patriots 30. After the Patriots were then called for an illegal substitution moving the line of scrimmage to the one-yard line, Williamsport opted for the quarterback sneak and it paid off as Burkholder pushed his way into the end zone.

Stevens also won the "B" match by fighting off an even par round of 34 shot by Joe Coleman as his partner, Alex Brogna, shot 41. Harry Stevens shot 40 and Dave Begliomini a 42 to ice the match. S tevens’ accomplishment this season was even more amazing in that they were alone or tied for first place the entire season in a fitting end to their retiring captain, Joe Gentile’s, involvement with the league and team. League president, Joe Biago, captained Ashley’s team. All members of the league will celebrate the season with a captain and crew tournament today at Emanon.

on first and third down. Old Forge took over at the Montrose 42, and after a 7-yard completion from Carey to Elijah Wilson, Febbo ripped off a 33-yard run on a short sweep before being knocked out at the 1. The Blue Devils called Febbo’s number again on the next play, and the senior plowed into the endzone for the score. Carey found Schuback again on the two-point pass, and Old Forge led 35-0 with 9:02 left in the second quarter. The Blue Devils would hold the Meteors to just nine more plays from scrimmage in the first half with five of those plays going for negative yardage as Cory Stuart registered two tackles for losses, and Joey Ciucco and Tyler Clark sacked Dibble on back-to-back plays. Old Forge added to its first-half total on a 23-yard field goal by Mancuso after a 11-yard Sekol touchdown was nullified by a holding penalty. Mancuso’s kick gave the Blue Devils a 38-0 lead heading into halftime. Montrose got on the board to start the fourth quarter, but Old Forge added one more score when backup quarterback Brendan Wahl scrambled six yards on fourth down for the score. Mancuso nailed the PAT for the 45-6 lead. Febbo finished with 98 yards on 13 carries, and Tomasetti added 83 yards on nine carries. Schuback also turned in a big game defensively, recording three tackles, including two sacks. The victory puts Old Forge in a firstplace tie after the first week of divisional play with Mid Valley and Susquehanna. The Spartans upset previously unbeaten Lackawanna Trail on Friday night, and the Sabers beat Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon. The Blue Devils host the Lions on Friday night.

drive. Musto split the uprights on the crucial PAT tying the game at 14-14. The Millionaires would get the ball back, but not for long as they brought in their deep throwing specialist Jordan Whaley to try and find the end zone. However, he found Houseman instead and the Patriots took over from the 43 when Houseman returned his interception 10 yards with 38 seconds remaining in regulation.

With just seconds remaining in the final quarter, Schwab tried to go deep over the middle to Houseman but his throw was just out of the reach of the diving star receiver. The clock struck zero before they could get another play off and the game was headed for overtime. Williamsport began the overtime period on offense. On first-and-goal from the 7yard line, Williamsport’s Burkholder found his tight end Ryan Hostrander in the end zone

making it a 20-14 ball game. The Millionaires opted to go for the two-point conversion rather than kick it through the uprights, and again failed as Jake Zalewski busted through the offensive line and brought down Miller in the backfield. The Patriots tried to answer on the ground, handing the ball off to Wilk for a four-yard gain on first down, and again on second down for 1-yard. Then on third-and-goal from the 5-yard line, Schwab found Marc Ro-

manczuk for a 3-yard gain setting up fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line. Schwab decided to go to the air and his pass was tipped and picked. His intended receiver was thrown to the ground and the Millionaires emerged victorious by a score of 20-14. “Everyone wants to win right now and games like this don’t make it any easier to understand,” Barrett said. “It takes time. We have a good football team and we are going to be

good. “The kids showed a ton of heart tonight. The defense played very well and I thought the offense did too.” Gattuso and Wilk lead the rushing attack for the Patriots. Gattusso had 72 yards on 13 carries, while Wilk had 98 yards on 17 carries. Houseman was the Patriots leading receiver with 55 yards on seven receptions. Schwab completed 11 passes for 85 yards.

Wyoming Area again wilted in the second half of play, losing a 6-2 decision to Lake-Lehman on Wednesday afternoon in a WVC crossover at the Tenth Street Soccer Field in Wyoming. The Warriors rallied with two goals in the final 17 minutes of the first half to tie the score at 2-2. Sean O’Malley and Chris Bone each scored unassisted goals after WA trailed 2-0 to the Black Knights. But Lehman scored four goals in the middle 15 minutes of the second half to earn the victory. Josh Donvito stopped 10 shots in goal for the Warriors who managed just five shots on goal in the loss. WA 1, Meyers 4

Wyoming Area surrendered three second-half goal in a 4-1 loss to Wilkes-Barre Meyers in a WVC crossover on Monday afternoon at the Tenth Street Soccer Field in Wyoming. Brian Wisowaty knotted the score at1-1just seven minutes before intermission to give the Warriors some momentum heading into the second half. But the Mohawks came back quickly with three unanswered goals to take the win. Aaron Carter stopped 16 shots in goal for Wyoming Area. OF 4, Dunmore 6

OF 2, Forest City 4

Old Forge out scored Forest City in the second half, but coming back from a three-goal deficit was just too much as the Blue Devils fell to the Foresters, 4-2, in a LLD3 match on Thursday afternoon in Forest City. Forest City scored quickly, taking a 1-0 lead just 5:13 into the match before adding goals at the 19- and 23-minute marks of the first half. The Foresters then struck early in the second half with a goal just three minutes in to take a 4-0 lead. But Old Forge did not quit, scoring two goals within five minutes of each other later in the half. J Argonish scored on a penalty kick at the 53:32 mark of the second half, and then again on an assist from Bobby Cipollina at the 57:58 mark. Corey Washington made 11 saves in goal for the Blue Devils. OF 2, Carbondale 5

Old Forge got off to a quick start but could not hold off Carbondale in a 5-2 loss in a LLD3 game at the Billy Long Complex on Wednesday afternoon in Old Forge. Bobby Cipollina scored on an assist from J Argonish at the 11:22 mark to give the Blue Devils a 1-0 lead over one of its top soccer rivals. But the Chargers came back to tie the game at 1-1 on a Jason McGovern penalty kick at the 36:04. Carbondale then scored four straight goals to open the second half, including three in the first 15 minutes to take a 4-1 lead. The Chargers went ahead, 5-1, before Old Forge got on the board again on an Argonish goal with less than nine minutes remaining. See SOCCER, Page 59

In the completion of a suspended game from earlier this season, Old Forge rallied to get within one goal of Dunmore, but the Blue Devils could get no closer in an eventual 6-4 loss to the Bucks in a Lackawanna Soccer League Division 3 match on Friday afternoon at the Billy Long Sports Complex in Old Forge. Trailing 4-1 when the game was resumed, Old Forge allowed a goal to open the second half but then scored three straight goals to get within 5-4 with 22 minutes left. Matt Mancuso found the back of the net on a J Argonish assist at the 48:14 mark to cut the deficit to 5-2 before Bobby Cipollina scored four minutes later on an assist from Alexa Furcon. Mancuso then got the Blue Devils within one on a goal off of

a corner kick at the 58:07 mark. Dunmore quickly answered with an insurance goal less than two minutes later and held Old Forge in the remaining time. Ian Nemetz scored the Blue Devils first goal on an assist from Matt Mancuso in the first half of the game which was played in a monsoon during the final week of September. Corey Washington stopped 14 shots in net for Old Forge (2-8)

PA’s Yozwiak named Ayn Rand Anthem essay contest winner Mrs. Nowakowski’s Honors English class at Pittston Area High School recently took part in the Ayn Rand Anthem essay contest. Meredith Yozwiak was chosen as a winner and was the recipient of a monetary award. The students had the choice of one of three topics distributed by the Ayn Rand Institute as their essay response. The contest was open to 8th, 9th or 10th grade students worldwide. The essay was judged on both style and content. Judges looked for writing that was clear, articulate and logically organized. Winning essays had to demonstrate an outstanding grasp of the philosophic meaning of Anthem. Pictured are Mrs. Nowakowski and Meredith Yozwiak. Senior Interviews By Jessica Baker

Ashley Warrick, of Pittston, was born on January 1, 1994, and is the daughter of Joann Kane and William Warrick. If Ashley was given the opportunity to relive high school, she said that she would not do anything differently. Her most memorable moment of high school was the very first day; her high school experience can be summed up into one work – unforgettable. Ashley is a member of the varsity cheerleading team. As far as favorites go, her favorite food is chicken wing pizza, her favorite movie is The Last Song, and Adam Sandler is her favorite celebrity. Ashley’s best friends are Amber Tirva and Jessica Welter. After her graduation, Ashley

plans to go to college. Mallory Yozwiak, of Pittston Township, was born on April 21, 1994, and is the daughter of Melanie and Charlie Yozwiak. For Mallory, the most memorable high school moment was the junior Barbie prank because she had Barbies in her purse. Her favorite teachers are Ms. Karaffa, and Ms. Oliver. A personal catchphrase of Mallory is “Oh shoot!” Her best friends include Gabby Vaxmonsky, James LaMarca, Shelby Smith, Jess Oliveri, and Anthony Capozucca. Mallory is a member of the field hockey and soccer teams. Also, she is a member of several clubs – ICE Club, Student Council, National Honor Society, Journalism Club, and Key Club. Chris Kovaleski, of Avoca,

was born on October 7, 1993, and is the son of Ed and Ellen Kovaleski. If Chris was able to start high school over, some things he would do differently would be to invest more time in his studies and involve himself in more school activities. His favorite teachers include Mr. Anthony, Mr. Richards, and Mr. Giambra. For Chris, the most challenging part of high school was starting in a new school. In one word, Chris describes his high school experience as “great.” Chris’s favorite food is hibachi, his favorite song is “Yellow” by Coldplay, and his favorite band is Rise Against. After high school, Chris plans to attend college. When an adult, Chris most looks forward to being able to live by himself.
