The end of the signature? I always thought the first thing technology would kill would be currency, paper money and weighty coins being done away with by debit cards and smart phone apps. I never dreamed it would be handwriting. But that may well be the case. Talk of schools omitting cursive writing as a curriculum requirement go back a few years but lately the concept is gaining traction. I read that 44 states no longer mandate the teaching of cursive writing. Kids are still taught to print the letters of the alphabet, but rather than learning cursive writing as the next step in their communication skill development, they learn the keyboard. The pedagogy is clear: typing, not handwriting is the future. A friend of mine dramatically asks, “Could this mean the end of the signature?” Sounds crazy, but it just might. Our signatures, as uniquely individual as they are, all grew

out of our mastery of cursive writing – our learning to produce curving, linked letters the very same way as everyone else. Adaptation to our personal styles would come later and go in all sorts of directions but the foundation was the same. I just scribbled down my own signature and must say the only hint at cursive training – and, believe me, a hint is all there is – is in the capital R., my middle initial for Richard, and perhaps the ‘m and ‘n’ at the end of Ackerman. My signature is straight up and down, not at all slanted, and is more akin to printing than writing. And the capital ‘E’ kicking it all off, if standing alone, wouldn’t resemble a letter of the alphabet at all. Still, all the letters of Edward and Ackerman are linked to one another, a tenet of cursive I’ve not left behind. What a contrast to my mom’s signature, I thought, and even to my wife’s. Mary Kay’s is about as cursive as it could be, the kind that surely would gar-

ner a gold star in second grade. How appropriate to our personalities, by the way – Mary Kay the more thoughtful, orderly person; I the more haphazard, impulsive one. I’d recognize Mary Kay’s signature anywhere and she mine. And more importantly, we’d recognize our own, a hedge against forgery. Can you imagine a time in the future when such a thing would not exist? “I can,” my son said on the phone Friday night. “Really?” I asked. “I hardly ever sign my name,” he responded and he wasn’t kidding. He’s 25 and up to his eyeballs in technology, most of it involving communication, and has no problem with schools teaching kids keyboarding rather than handwriting. In fact, he thinks it’s a good idea. “I never write on paper,” he added. “You do have a checking account?” I asked.

“Of course,” he answered, but I never write a check. “All my bills are deducted automatically from my account. And even if they weren’t, I’d pay them online.” I got to thinking, not only does my son never write a check, he never writes anything, not on paper anyway. He always has an iPhone and an iPad with him and that’s where he “jots” things down. While I think “pencil and paper,” he thinks “keyboard and computer screen.” If he’s the model then the educators know what they’re talking about. Who needs handwriting? Now that I think about it, this has not happened overnight. How many Christmas cards of late have the sender’s name laser printed in a carefully chosen font? How many birthdays are noted with e-cards that sing from my computer but bear no one’s real signature? Even birthday cakes have gone techno with laser printed photographs of the honored

guest where once there was “Happy Birthday” in pink or blue icing cursively squeezed out of a tube by the chef with the best handwriting? What the demise of the signature will do to the whole autograph business I have no idea. But I imagine when Andy Warhol’s prediction that someday everyone in America will be famous for 15 minutes comes to pass, autographs will no longer count for a heck of a lot. Which probably wouldn’t be a bad thing when all is said and done. On the whole, I suppose I’m not questioning the end of cursive writing and possibly the signature as much as I’m just trying to digest it. I’m having trouble picturing the Declaration of Independence with a list of neatly typed names at the bottom in place of all those wild, demonstrative signatures. Is it me or does John Hancock tend to lose something when envisioned in Helvetica bold?

arrie Stella of Plains likes to push her daughter Samantha in a stroller along the Luzerne County National Recreation Trail in Pittston, but she doesn’t like carrying the stroller. That’s what she had to do on Tuesday afternoon. She and her walking companion had to carefully carry the stroller through a 25-foot long debris field covering the trail near the .04 mike marker. “It’s pretty rough right now,” Stella said. “They’re going to have to clean it up if they want to keep it open.” Left by the flood, the debris is mostly logs and branches, but mid-week it also included a 55gallon drum, numerous plastic containers, a Domino’s pizza sign and a toilet seat. At the south end of the trail a gate under the viaduct trapped another large pile of debris with a boat seat, pallets and tires scattered through it. All along the trail, lengths of the fence are either missing or bent at 45 degree angles and there are deep ruts running lengthwise on the crushed stone trail bed and gullies across it. A 15-foot tree branch sits atop the fence near the .02 mark crushing the top pipe. Along the entire trail where the fence is intact it is intertwined with vegetation left by the flood. The river was four to five feet deep on the trail and raging at the river’s crest. The crushed stone was loosened along much of the path and, coupled with the debris, makes the trail unsuitable for jogging or even a brisk walk without a pair of heavy shoes. The missing sections of the fence which is supposed to separate the trail from the still-active rail line create a safety issue. Luzerne County National Recreation Trail, Inc. is the nonprofit organization which designed the trail, raised money and applied for grants. Keith Moss is the non-profit’s president. The trail is on the right-of-way of the Luzerne County Railroad, which is under the umbrella of

Greenfield’s ‘Munch at the Moose’ rocks WP Chef Pat Greenfield steps up to give flood victims a break on Sundays By Jack Smiles

oose Lodge administrator Bernie Cassetori was talking to some members one day about the flood when he wondered aloud, “Where are all those people who go to Agolino’s for Sunday breakfast going?” Then the idea hit him: provide an alternative with a breakfast buffet at the Moose. And for good measure why not a breakfast prepared by an executive chef? He called Pat Greenfield, owner and chef of Grico’s in Exeter which is closed since it was severely damaged by fire on August 26. “Bernie asked me,” Greenfield said. “He’s a good friend and when he asked me I said yes.” Cassetori said he and Greenfield became friends over 20 years ago when she bought Grico’s. “It was my favorite restaurant. It’s the kind of place where you go in and they know what you want.” The breakfast has been offered for four weeks, the fifth week is today, and it’s grown by word of mouth each week. Cassetori said the breakfast won’t be permanent. “There will come a day when it will end. Agolino’s is expected to be closed eight weeks, so maybe four more weeks.” Cassetori said the breakfast involves serving more than just food. “We’re happy the people in are town getting together. It’s a nice little mixer.” Greenfield said she has connected with some of her Grico’s customers at the breakfast. “It’s fun to see everybody. And it’s fun to get up at 4:30,” she added with a laugh. The breakfast, which Greenfield calls “Moose Sunday Munch” runs from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It’s an all-you-can-eat deal with basics like eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, fresh fruit and pastries served with hot coffee, tea and juices. And there are extras like pumpkin pecan pancakes with cinnamon butter and maple syrup and, today, an apple crisp.

The cost is $6.95plus tax and $4.00 for children under 10. The Moose Lodge is at 425 Exeter Avenue in West Pittston. The phone is 654-1635 Greenfield said she has no long range plans concerning reopening Grico’s or opening a restaurant at a different location. “I’m waiting to see what happens with insurance and stuff. I

have options and offers and I’m waiting to see how things work out. I’m taking it slowly.” In the meantime Greenfield is keeping her catering business going working out of the old Seton Catholic high school kitchen which she rented. She said she’s been busy with weddings and parties, and she’s booking Christmas parties.

he new Eighth Street Bridge is finished, but the east side entrance isn’t. Motorists traveling south in Jenkins Township have to negotiate a sharp turn around a construction barrier to get on the bridge. The new bridge opened in March and the east section of the old bridge was taken down in July. The rest of the bridge was supposed to be taken down in August. The east side entrance was supposed to be completed in September. But the flood and continued high water has put work on the bridge on hold. A large crane sits idle where the turning lane should be. James May of the PennDOT Community Relations Department talked to the project engineer this week and relayed an explanation. “It’s a domino effect,” May said. “We can’t finish the turning lane until we move the equipment and barrier; we can’t move the equipment and barrier until

we finish the wing wall; and we can’t finish the wing wall until the water goes down.” The wing walls keep dirt and mud from the river away from the bridge. The domino theory goes for the causeway which was built to catch the old bridge section when it was taken down. The causeway has to be moved under the still-standing section of the

daunting,” he said. “I would say if we were asked today we wouldn’t make that agreement.” As to the flood damage, Reilly said he would send a crew to the trail to see what they could do temporarily to make the area safer. As to a major repair, that will have to wait. “We don’t have the manpower to do it right now. We’re spread too thin. We have to see if we can get some disaster relief.” Pittston city manager Joe Moskovitz said it is possible FEMA will help with some money for clean up and repair of the trail. He said while FEMA doesn’t

have programs to restore flooded recreation areas, per se, help might be available for government capital investments, which could include the trail. He said he will ask about that when he meets with FEMA in two weeks. The 1.5-mile trial provides access to markers for the Knox Mine Disaster site and the Eagle Air Shaft, an escape route for Knox survivors. The trail opened in June of 2007. A long-range plan calls for the trail to eventually connect Wilkes-Barre with the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, a 40-mile trail planned to run from Union Dale in Susquehanna County through communities in Lackawanna County to Duryea and Pittston.

WA grad Ryan Jones, professional country musician, died on Wednesday By Jessica Sabol

Special to the Dispatch

Editor’s note: Ryan Jones, 30, a native of Exeter and a Wyoming Area graduate, died on Wednesday in Nashville where he was a professional county music musician with the LoCash Cowboys and where he was known as “Troop.” He was the son of Marilyn Gubbioti, well known funeral director from Exeter. His obituary is on page 58. Jessica Sabol was a close friend of Ryan from their days at Wyoming Area. She was in the WA Drama Club with him and performed with him in a few musicals including “Guys and Dolls” in 1997. She is a periodic contributor to the Sunday Dispatch. I open my mouth to the Lord, and I won’t turn back. For those of us who had the privilege to know him, Ryan “Troop” Jones was nothing short of a phenomenon. You see, there was just something about him. He wasn’t your average person; he wasn’t your average guy. In fact, Ryan was much more than that. He was everything a mother would want in her son, everything a father would want in a future son-in-law, everything a teacher would want to become of his or her student, and everything a friend would want in another friend.

At the age of three, when other kiddos were busy collecting toy cars and trucks, Ryan was busy finding his love, his passion, and his excellence as a classical violinist. As a senior in high school, when other teens were too worried about the latest gossip, Ryan was playing alongside the Charlie Daniels Band at the Kirby Center. In his 20s, when others his age were consumed with partying and crazy lifestyles, Ryan took a chance, packed his bags, and headed to Nashville. Armed with a fiddle and some flair, Ryan found his calling, and he certainly wasn’t going to turn back. I will go. I shall go. In 2005, Ryan joined the country music band, LoCash Boys. He had made it. The young boy from Exeter who once performed on the stage at Wyoming Area was now a touring musician, making a living and a life for himself doing what he loved. His enthusiasm for life spilled over in his performances. Ryan was a true artist. He understood what it felt like to have the “need to create” and was able to share his creations with everyone he touched. Ryan was known throughout the music community as the musician who twirled his bow, tossed it in the air, and never failed to sing out loud to the song in his heart.

I’ll see what the end is going to be. Ryan lived his life to the fullest every day. He was an unbelievable talent and a gentle soul. Everyone who knew him loved him. When you spoke to him, he actually listened. If you were down on your luck, he’d be right there to pick you back up. He was a true gentleman, a class act. Ryan left us on October 19 to share his talent with a new audience in the heavens above. To Marilyn Gubbiotti, Ryan’s beloved mother: I know that words cannot heal. All I will say is thank you; thank you for bringing Ryan into this world and for raising such a wonderful son. Know that he left a beautiful mark on every person he met. Know that he will never be forgotten. Know that Ryan’s “Army” is right here … right beside you … every step of the way. I open my mouth to the Lord, and I won’t turn back. I will go. I shall go. I’ll see what the end is going to be.

FACTS OF LAW

By Dominick P. Pannunzio, Esq.

Wisconsin has a new law that prohibits communities from making their employers offer paid sick leave to their workers. The law was passed after a state appeals court upheld a Milwaukee ordinance that required the fringe benefit. The new state law nullifies the Milwaukee ordinance, which 69% of city voters approved in a referendum in 2008. *** People have no right to resist if police officers illegally enter their home, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in a decision that overturns centuries of common law. The court issued its 3-2 ruling on Thursday, contending that allowing residents to resist officers who enter their homes without any right would increase the risk of violent confrontation. Justices Robert Rucker and Brent Dickson strongly dissented, saying the ruling runs afoul of the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment against unreasonable search and seizure. *** The Georgia Supreme Court has struck down a law that allowed the state to approve and fund charter schools over the objection of local school boards. *** A new Vermont Law makes it easier to band together to use net metering, which lets customers generate their own electricity and ship extra power back to the utility to lower their bill. *** Wyoming’s supreme court has unanimously reversed a district court ruling, thereby allowing a Wyoming same-sex couple to obtain a divorce, even though Wyoming doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages. Texas courts have taken the opposite position.

The article focuses on how older adults who live in nursing homes have needs that aren’t met when they are passive recipients of care for their basic needs. One of those unmet needs is to do things for others. Dr. Cipriani’s piece gives practical suggestions for programming based on what the research says about altruism. Dr. Cipriani earned his B.A. degree from Wilkes College, a B.S. degree from Misericordia University, M.A. degree from Wichita State University, and his Ed.D. from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Cipriani is a full professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy.

OUR OPINION

YO U R S PAC E

‘I want to be a Warrior’

Don’t fail the trail

Understandably a recreational trail is at the bottom of the flood damage clean up and repair list. As the story on page 3 explains, the Luzerne County National Recreation Trail, as the trail along the river in Pittston is officially called, was extensively damaged by the flood. It will likely take several months to get the trail back to pre-flood shape. But what kind of shape was that? Even before the flood the trail needed maintenance. Problems on the trail began as soon as it opened to much fanfare in June, 2007 after years of planning and at a cost of $800,000 in grant money. The 1.8-mile trail wasn’t even open 24 hours when a 250-foot section of the fence which separates the trail and the active rail line was taken down in an act of vandalism. Since then the vandalism, littering and dumping have continued. The condition of the trail has discouraged use by walkers and joggers and the under-use has only diminished the urgency to maintain the trail. When we called the city to ask who is responsible for trail maintenance we were referred to the non-profit Luzerne County National Recreation Trail, Inc. A call there sent us to the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority which owns the railroad. The Authority would have liked to pass the buck, too, but it couldn’t. Under the original agreement with the trail nonprofit, the authority agreed to maintain the trail. Now, Andy Reilly, the authority director, said if they had it to do over again they would not have made that agreement. What is needed is a coalition of volunteers to maintain the trail as is done at the Back Mountain Trail. There college students, high school groups, scout troops, the trail association members, various clubs and individual community-minded volunteers get together twice a year, at least, to clean and maintain the trail. Cleaning and maintaining the trail could be a good project for high school clubs and church youth groups, our own scout troops, service organizations, etc. The YMCA used the trail for a Fun Run/ Walk event. Maybe they would help out. While it’s true the Authority agreed to maintain it, that doesn’t mean, in our view, the non-profit trail group should consider its job done just because the trail was completed. Maybe the non-profit would agree to spearhead a volunteer group and organize periodic cleanups. Something has to be done.

Wyoming area football coach Randy Spencer was at the youth football game last Sunday between the West Pittston Rams and the Exeter Panthers. I had my eight year old son (Adam Sigman) walk up to coach Spencer and say, “I want to be a Warrior!” I heard coach Spencer say to Adam, “Then you’re talking to the right guy.” They shook hands and their conversation went on for about three minutes. It was quite fun to watch Coach Spencer give Adam advice. - Dave Sigman The Sunday Dispatch encourages submissions for Your Space.

Thanks Gerrity’s, public for supporting bake sale The Humpty Dumpty Mother’s Klub wanted to say thank you to the people of West Pittston for their turnout for the bake sale we held at Gerrity’s in West Pittston. We have a few families of children that attend our school that were affected by the flood and wanted to do something to show our support for them. I had called a few stores to ask if we could hold the bake sale at their storefronts. Not all were as nice or accommodating as Gerrity’s. We were told it was no problem...anytime…any day... we could use their store. As many times as we needed they would allow it. They gave us an extra table, garbage bags we forgot and checked numerous times to see if we needed anything else. The

parents of the band and football players had even offered to let us set up a table at their homecoming if we needed. The people of West Pittston and their surrounds are such a close knit community. They stopped to purchase baked goods, talk and even just to donate money. It was heartwarming to see this over the 4 hours we were there. Thanks to all the moms at Humpty Dumpty and their family and friends that baked delicious things for us to sell. It was a big success! Humpty Dumpty Mother’s Klub

Candidate proposes plan for electing county manager I am an Independent candidate for the new 11-person Luzerne County Council that will be elected on November 8. The first important decision of the new Council will be to create an effective recruitment and hiring process to attract a high performing County Manager. This process must balance the needs for fairness and transparency for two groups: applicants for the posi-

tion, and citizens of Luzerne County. Many highly qualified candidates may not want their current employer to know they are applying for this new position. However, Luzerne County citizens deserve to know the process is not See PLAN, Page 38

Pumpkins more than just a decoration Pumpkins are a healthy food, that is the real McCoy, not the marshmallow! They are rich in alpha and beta carotene which are protective phytochemicals found naturally in some foods. Phytochemicals, otherwise known as “plant chemicals,” are not essential for life like vitamins and minerals. It is thought, however, that they do promote health and reduce the risk of some cancers. Fruits, vegetables, soy products, teas, herbs, nuts and seeds all contain one or more phytochemicals. How does one begin to cook a pumpkin? First, select a heavy unblemished cooking pumpkin (like a sugar pumpkin) that is free of cracks and soft spots and has a deep orange color. Sometimes called baking or pie pumpkins. Store in a cool dry place. Whole unblemished pumpkin can be stored for 3-6 months at 45-50 F. To cut open, place on a newspaper and insert tip of chef’s knife. Scoop out strings and seeds with a spoon and discard. Pumpkins can be baked at 350 F for 30 minutes–1hour or microwave on high for 15 minutes. They can also be peeled, diced, and boiled. Check for doneness by inserting a fork to measure tenderness. The seeds can also be enjoyed by rinsing and then laying out flat on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with favorite herb. Bake just until light browned at 400 degrees. Use the cooked pumpkin as a puree, or serve as the base of a savory soup or in a sweet pie. Other Uses for the flesh can be in a casserole or stew and serve in the shell. Mash with brown sugar or maple syrup and a pat of butter. Or skip the fresh vegetable and use canned pumpkin instead for everything from soup to muffins and bread. Here are some ideas to incorporate more pumpkin into your weekly meal planning. Pumpkin Bundt Cake

1 applesauce, spice, or carrot cake mix 4 eggs or 8 egg whites 15 oz canned pumpkin 1/4 cup water Preheat oven to 350F°. Spray Bundt pan with nonfat spray. Combine cake mix, eggs and pumpkin; mix at low speed until moistened, then at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining eggs, water. Beat again for 3 minutes. Bake 45 to 55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes then invert on dish. Dust with powder sugar before serving. Add a dollop of nonfat whipped topping! Or try this Spread on Whole grain bagels Pumpkin Spread

1 cup yogurt cheese 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 3 Tbsp confectioner’s sugar 1 1/2 Tbsp orange juice concentrate Mix ingredients, chill several hours. Serve as dip with vegetables, spread on toast, bread. Yogurt cheese – 2 cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt. Line strainer with coffee filter papers. Spoon yogurt into lined strainer. Cover and refrigerate overnight. See NUTRITION, Page 30

Pasta dinner at Wyoming Area helps flood victims

Question In 1971, what law changed something we did on the fourth Monday in the month of October, but only for five years?

Peeking into the past With Judy Minsavage

1961 – 50 Years Ago Navy Ensign Aldo J. Casseri, of Wyoming, participated in the Naval exercise Operation Sea Shell aboard the USS Bennington in October of 1961. An anti-submarine warfare support aircraft carrier, the Bennington suffered two major accidents, a boiler room explosion in April of 1953 and a terrible hydraulic catapult explosion and fire on May 26, 1954. The latter cost the lives of 103 men. Forty-eight years earlier the USS Bennington Naval Gun Boat experienced a boiler explosion on the morning of July 21, 1905 taking the lives of 65 men. The women of Pittston were ready for a fight. They had collectively planned to attend a school board meeting to complain that the children’s rest rooms needed doors on the “closets”. However, only a few women showed up. One woman stated, “Forty women were supposed come but were stopped. Somebody ‘talked’ to them.” The Sunday Dispatch asked the question, “Who would have the unmitigated gall to make a police state out of little Pittston?” Sixteen Pittston area students were set to graduate from Wilkes-Barre Business College: Elizabeth Morgan, Geraldine Callaio, Patricia Cicacci, Cecelia Russo, Carmella Puma, Molly Brannon, Dorothy Sherwood, Kathleen Connell, Ruth Kaslavage, Rita Fliss, Mary Grobinski, Carol Schoner, Robert Cebula, Louis Volpetti, Patricia Spatz and Elaine Tirpak. The Pittston office of the Family Service Association increased its office hours due to a heavy volume of requests for assistance. Among the services offered in 1961 were marriage counseling, elderly assistance, help for single mothers and a homemaker service that temporarily kept families together while mothers were unable to care for their homes and families. According to the Family Service Association of Wyoming Valley website, the Charity Society Organization was founded in 1895. It changed its name to the current one in 1941, and in 1961, the Pittston office opened. Read the complete history of this fine organization at http:// www.fsawv.org/about.php

1981 – 30 Years Ago Minors’ Lounge and Restaurant in Pittston held the first Pool Partners Championship with first place trophies going to Michael Kizis and Pat Tracy and second place to Al Kashinsky and Jim Homschek. Many young men participated in the tournament and were impressed by the demonstration conducted by pool champion Leo Galli. A tournament for girls was to be held in the following week. Does anyone know who won the girl’s tournament? Call me at 602-0168. Pool rooms were originally betting parlors for horseracing. Patrons passed the time between races by playing billiards. Over time, the game became synonymous with the term pool room. Shooting a 73, Sandy LaFoca won the 1981 Wyoming Valley All Star Golf match held at the Wilkes-Barre Municipal Golf Course. While attending Pittston Area High School, LaFoca finished his season with a 9-3 record. Wyoming Area graduate Cathy Price of Exeter, and Pittston Area graduate Robin Marino-Purves both were seeing success as members of the Wilkes College tennis team. Price took MVP honors as freshmen. 1991 – 20 Years Ago Seton Catholic senior Sheileen O’Malley had an opportunity to view the political process up close. She was selected to attend the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington D.C. Sheileen was scheduled along with 349 other students from across the country to meet with politicians and journalists and participate in discussions and reenactments. Sheileen was selected to attend after demonstrating academic excellence and leadership skills. Opened in 1949, The Pittston Library had gone through a series of difficulties during its first 21 years. In 1970, new

life was breathed into the effort by original board members Maria Capolarella, Joe Luke, Jean Linskey, Bob Linskey, Jean Campbell and new board members Clair Clapps, Annarose McNulty and Linda Scaz. From sponsoring small sparsely attended fundraisers the group began to gain notice of politicians and local residents which led to more well attended events generating much needed funding for the library. In 1991, the library celebrated the 20th anniversary of its rebirth. 2001 – 10 Years Ago In 1927, the Wyoming Free Library was born through the efforts of the Wyoming Women’s Club. Kate Pettebone Dickson donated a century-old home on Wyoming Avenue to the cause and by the end of the first year the library had over 1600 books on display. Board and staff members Marcella Scott, Sandra Tou, Jack Mills, Peter Podwika, Ellen Davenport, Jonah Aben, Betty Miller, James and Susan Shoemaker, Lisa Barrett, Joseph Olesky, Carol Shemo, and Joan Perconte celebrated the library’s 74th year. Built in 1847, the Exeter borough building was slated for demolition in 2001, wiping out 107 years of Exeter history. As the wrecking ball made short work of the historical building, Mayor Joe Coyne and councilman Joe Esposito retrieved bricks from the rubble to distribute to residents. A replica of the original bell tower was incorporated into the design of the new borough building and the old flagpole would see new life at the planned veteran’s memorial. Answer In 1968, Congress passed the Monday Holiday Law establishing the fourth Monday in October as the date for the observance of Veteran’s Day to become effective in 1971. Initially all states followed suit except Mississippi and South Dakota. Other states opted to change their observances back to November 11. In 1975, based on popular support, legislation passed to return the Federal observance of Veteran’s Day to November 11. With the money I’m making, I should be playing two positions. Pete Rose, 1977 When we played, World Series checks meant something. Now all they do is screw up your taxes. Don Drysdale, 1978

1971 – 40 Years Ago The West Pittston Cemetery needed some sprucing up so Wyoming Area Key Club members Jackie Hoover, Lefty Lefchak, Len “Far Catch” Tarrito, Dave Nerozzi, Louis Palmeri, Willis “Fence” Hapeman, Harry Schmaltz, Gerard Newman, Gerry Kashuda, Paul Pugliese, Joe Jankoviak, and Sam Maira volunteered their time, took brush in hand and painted the cemetery fence. In 1953, John Moss of Duryea had a dream to start a neighborhood playground that would keep children safe while having fun. In 1971, John was presented with a gold wristwatch from the Duryea Healey Memorial Playground Association, as a tribute to his vision. John attributed the success of the project to fellow charter members Nellie Dempski, Joseph Gross, Frank “Peck” Pesotine, Senator Pat Toole, Frank Galonis, Bill Medico and Ettore Agolino. Duryea was thought to be a mail carrier’s nightmare. Not only does the borough have two Main streets, two Church streets and two Grove streets, but in 1971, Coxton residents had their mail changed to a Duryea address, while the Junction section had theirs listed under Pittston, and the fifth ward had an Avoca mailing address. The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring Photographer asked, “What do you recall about old-fashioned Halloween fun?” John Blandina of West Pittston answered, “Tipping over outhouses, people expected it, and would have been disappointed if we didn’t.” Angelo Montante, Pittston, added, “We always went trick or treating and most of the times it was tricking.” Ralph Klein of Pittston remembered, “There was always a big parade, we would go to a party and bob for apples.” Top ten songs of 1971: 1. Superstar, Carpenters 2. Maggie May, Rod Stewart 3. Sweet City Woman, Stampeders 4. I’ve Found Someone of My Own, Free Movement 5. If You Really Love Me, Stevie Wonder 6. Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, Cher 7. Yo Yo, Osmonds

8. Do You Know What I Mean, Lee Michaels 9. The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down, Joan Baez 10. Aint No Sunshine, Bill Withers. Mo-Ritz Lounge on Main Street in Duryea was the site of the installation dinner of the Auxiliary of American Legion Post 585. The new officers of the auxiliary were Victoria Graboski, president; Anna Saneski, first vice president; Edna Butrymowicz, second vice president; Stella Piorkowski, secretary; Sophie Davis, treasurer; Carmelita Sokolowski, chaplain and Mary Edwards, historian.

he flood left some 800 homes in West Pittston without living room furniture and that created an opportunity for an entrepreneur from North Carolina as well as for furniture buyers. Preston Rich hauled a tractor trailer load of living room sets from North Carolina to West Pittston and prominently displayed them leaned against each other like “A” frames at the intersection of Fourth Street and Wyoming and Baltimore avenues. “We’re here to give the folks who were flooded a good deal on furniture,” Rich said. He had two-piece sets with couch and love seat and nine pillows for $589 and three-piece leather sets with couch, love seat and chair for $649 with free delivery. He set up Thursday morning and sold three sets within a few hours. Rich said he offered a low price because he eliminated the middle man. “They’re straight from the factories in North Carolina. Made in America. No doubt about it.” As he talked, a car pulled up and a woman asked for prices through the window. “Sounds good. It’s for my brother. I’ll let him know,” she said as she drove away. Rich said he expects to be back in the area next week, if not in the same spot, somewhere nearby.

Living room sets from North Carolina await prospective buyers at the intersection of Fourth Street and Baltimore and Wyoming avenues in West Pittston Thursday.

Maria: Breast cancer, a personal story in three parts Continued from Page 15

and dust the ceiling fan for me. How long can I play this out? About as long as took my husband to figure out he can indeed play golf this month, but not water aerobics. PART II

Humpty Maria sat on a wall; Humpty Maria had a great fall. Sadly, but not entirely surprisingly, the biopsy uncovered a diagnosis of Ductal Carcinoma. I was about to embark on a voyage where the main port-of-call was an inconvenient location called breast cancer. When you first hear the word “cancer” you think: “Ohhhh…crap.” When others hear it, you get a mixed response. I discovered that those of a certain generation tend to actually whisper the word “cancer” the same way they mumble other taboo topics, such “mafia”, “transvestite” or “kidsfor-cash. ” I believe they think if you say “cancer” out loud, you may actually catch it. I’m here to tell you that cancer is not contagious. Truly. But, on the up-side, having cancer can get you stuff and get you out of stuff! For instance: Obtaining a cleaning lady. Actually, this tactic did not work for me, but my husband did morph into a temporary Merry Maid! He actually stepped up to Swiffer and stepped down to scrub the floors. It was amazing. Don’t tell him I said that. I don’t need him thinking I appreciate him at this late date. No fundraising! No volunteering! Who is going to ask a chick with breast cancer to sell cheesecakes or man a coin-drop? No one! Free pass! Just say no! You can totally proclaim: “I have cancer and you have to do anything I say,” and get away with it, in addition to making pretty much any rude statement; i.e.: “I have cancer, so you should pay for my lunch.” Or, “My cancer prevents me from buying you a Christmas present this year. You understand.” Or, “I have cancer and you suck and your haircut makes you look fat.” Anything goes!

When people offered: “If you need anything, just call”…I really did! That’s what they get for being so crazy- generous! I made calls to have my car washed, my Christmas lights strung and my dog’s anal glands cleaned. Ps: When you say: “If you need anything…” perhaps follow with the words “…except anything having to do with an animal’s orifice.” And, alas, no takers for my request of a mustache wax. Now this is dicey: handicapped parking. Look, I was technically handicapped before this all started because I’m freakishly short, and my friend, Denise, insists that by government standards, I’m considered a dwarf and may qualify for government benefits. Who knew? But, that aside, I say, with no boobies where there once was a pair, most women may consider that somewhat of a pseudo-handicap! Yet, I could not bring myself to park in that blue space, with that strange, blue stick-man glaring up at me from his blacktop-flanked wheelchair, primarily because my legs were actually still functional. I do have some standards, you know. After losing “Thing One and Thing Two” it was amazing how every inanimate object resembles ta-ta’s once they become a distant memory; for instance: A doorknob A salt shaker (and possibly the pepper mill in a certain light) A truffle Kiwi, of course, and even more so, an avocado. Actually, all fruit, except a banana. That resembles something else entirely. A water bottle A jelly fish Naturally, a baggie full of anything…but especially Jell-O An egg. Extra bonus points if it’s sunny side up Well…yes, it took some getting used to, this loss of my milk cartons, but if it’s between look-

ing like the Pillsbury Dough Boy and having cancer, Dough Boy it is. It’s a very small price to pay for being cancer free. Having a radical mastectomy is no walk in the park but it is a gift when you’re presented with a future without breast cancer. Happily, the day has come that I can now say; “I HAD cancer, and you have to do anything I say.” True, it doesn’t have the same spark of urgency or pity…but let’s just hope it never does. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men worked really

of your city limits, but for me, talking about it at every opportunity is the way I roll. And, to the woman in front of me at the grocery store – sorry that I gave you a blow-by-blow description of my mastectomy, when all you asked was if the cantaloupe was ripe. To know me is to…choose another checkout line, I guess. Regarding Rack Reconstruction, I have to say, everyone from my father to the gas station attendant had an opinion about the size of my future cupage. It’s amazing how forthcoming everyone is with advice about my body parts! But, I made it very clear to everyone that my new additions would be more the size of tangerines than say, grapefruits. If this was my one chance to have something appear young, perky and untouched by childbirth, then, by God, smaller fruit was the way to go. My father was so disappointed in me. “I don’t get it,” he would say, head shaking slowly from side to side. “Don’t you want something a little more substantial? I mean, this is your chance to show-off a good pair of aces!” “Dad!” I screeched. “Yuck! Stop talking to me about this! I told you – small and perky. Small and perky, dammit!” No one really understood my preference, but that didn’t stop random acquaintances from gesturing and declaring their hypothesis on the situation. Or, I imagined everyone did, anyway. The poor man at the corn-onthe-cob stand, for example. He was merely putting produce in a bag for me, yet I imagined he was weighing-in on my perceived size! And, I yelled at a Little League coach as he was examining errant baseballs: “Hey! That’s too big! Too big for me!” My brother, sisters, cousins, hairdresser and the lady at the dry cleaner all offered their unsolicited measurement advice; some creepy – some helpful. Even my surgeon was skeptical about my decision. I doubt that in his entire career he has never had

I’d like to plead to all of my female readers: please, please high-tail it to your yearly mammograms. Ladies, we do not want to mess around with the prospect of hosting a breast cancer free-for-all upon our bodies. hard to put Maria back together again. PART III

Happily, my breast cancer was extinguished so early that I did not need any chemotherapy or radiation. This was a “cup halffull” situation. I think I was dreading the treatment even more than the surgery. Time marched slowly on and I shuffled from mastectomy to expanders to a little thing I like to call “Rack Reconstruction”. So, I am thrilled to report that I recently completed all parts of the puzzle that was breast cancer. I am now a new and improved version of my old self. Well, one puzzle piece is, anyway. And I must say, while everyone was reverent, sympathetic and respectful when speaking about my breast cancer, they were, at turns, outspoken, opinionated and forthright about the size of my future, cancer-free spare parts. I am, by all means, extremely open about my entire life, and breast cancer was not an exception. I know that some people may decide against sharing their story with the general population

a woman walk into his office and ask to “go smaller.” It was a novelty. I was concerned that implants don’t even come in the size I envisioned: XX small. They may have had to special order them from the Land of Oz, but thankfully, that is what arrived on Implant Day: the perfect tangerines. The implant surgery went swimmingly. Except for one small detail. Due to the damage to my underlying tissue, the surgeon had to utilize a little something they call ”donor tissue,” which fills the space left vacant by my old package. I didn’t want to know from where this donor tissue originates. Is it animal? Mineral? Vegetable? Can I wear it in my hair? Do I dare? Does it come from a face? Or outer space? Was it last attached to a dog? A cat? A frog? A pollywog? Can you buy it at a store? The shore? Will it make me snore? I know it made me sore. (Perhaps this tissue’s donor was a direct descendant of Dr. Seuss.) At any rate, it may very well be tissue from a swine. So, if you see me at Sonic sporting a snout, a curly tail and bleating – just ignore me and hide your bacon. It may hurt my feelings. Lastly, I’d like to plead to all of my female readers: please, please high-tail it to your yearly mammograms. Ladies, we do not want to mess around with the prospect of hosting a breast cancer free-for-all upon our bodies. Introduce your girls to a mammogram every single year. Remember, we can either be proactive and save our life, or be lackadaisical and risk our life. Early detection saved my particular life. And…by the way…my new girlfriends have names. I toyed with a few ideas: Lucy and Ethel, Veronica and Betty, Ginger and Mary Ann, Cagney and Lacey, Thelma and Louise. Trust me; it’s much easier to get through a mini health crisis when you attach names to your body parts. Don’t ask me why, or I would have to make-up an explanation. So, finally, I am doing alright. The girls are all alright. Laverne. Shirley. And me.

County Historical Society trustee Joseph Cimini offered remarks on Miller’s remarkable career. Longtime friend and trolley buff The Rev. James Wert also spoke about Miller’s work and generosity to share his photos and collections with historians and authors. Following the marker dedication a light lunch and social hour was sponsored at the Lackawanna Historical Society’s nearby Catlin House. The tunnel, opened by the railroad in 1908, was a favorite spot of Miller’s on the Laurel Line. Passenger service ended on the line in 1952 and it fell into disuse in the 1970s. Miller exposed many images of freight and passenger trains in the tunnel area until service ended. When the Lackawanna County Rail Authority and Electric City Trolley museum began to restore the line several years ago, Miller was trackside almost daily. He watched the construction work and offered important information about the tunnel’s construction, including information from the Laurel Line’s files which he saved. Always a historian, Miller brought his camera along and carefully recorded the work. Starting with a photo in 1938 at the old Westmoor car barns of Wilkes-Barre Traction, Miller exposed more than 12,000 images of area railroads and rail events. Most of his work was based in Northeastern Pennsylvania. But the Laurel Line remained his favorite railroad. But wherever Miller traveled with his camera he created lasting images of the rail lines in those areas. Miller was born in Milton in

Attendees rode from the Electric City trolley museum to the tunnel in the museum's former Philadelphia & Western car

1920 and moved to Pittston as a youth. Following graduation from Pittston High School he worked as a draftsman for a number of companies including Foster Wheeler, Long Island Lighting, Pope & Talbott and retired from the former Owens-Illinois-Techneglas. He served during World War II in the US Army Transportation Corps in France and Belgium and was in the first group of recruits to leave Pittston in January, 1942. He fulfilled a life-long dream and worked as a motorman for Capital Transit streetcar company in Washington D.C. in the early 1950s. Miller was also active in the former Magee Transportation museum in Bloomsburg, which was destroyed by the Agnes Flood in 1972. He will be remembered by his friends as a kind hearted, generous person with a contagious sense of humor and an encyclopedic memory of railroad and local history.

SUNDAY DISPATCH, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2011

WA candidates say health care costs the problem We, as candidates for Wyoming Area School Board, are sensitive to the economic recession we are in. We are all experiencing higher grocery bills, increased home heating costs, escalating gas prices, along with the pain, suffering and devastation that the recent flooding has caused. We are aware that these challenging times have put an extra strain on family budgets and have created a financial burden for everyone. Unfortunately, this situation is compounded by the recent mailings of school taxes, which are due at the end of the year. We know of the challenges you face during these difficult times and, as your elected officials, we too are faced with the daunting challenge of balancing the District budget while being fair to you, the taxpayers. We see the major issue facing the Distract as surging health care costs. Family coverage for a district employee, husband, wife and child costs the district over $21,000 per year. The District’s yearly cost for employee health care is $2.8 million, with zero contributions from union-represented employees. In addition, state reimburse-

rigged. The Transition Committee has already advertised for the County Manager position, and received dozens of applications, not yet reviewed. This position announcement and advertisement did not mention whether applications would be treated confidentially or not. I’d like to propose a process for hiring the new County Manager that I believe would be fair to all parties. It begins when 11 new Council members meet with the existing Transition Committee to prepare for the start of the new form of county government. For a brief period, perhaps 2 to 4 weeks, the application process would be re-opened by issuing a new job announcement and advertisement. The re-opened an-

ment under the Corbett administration has declined over $1 million for the fiscal year 20112012. We propose to cut expenditures by asking that teachers take part in contributing to their own health care as we do, and as all other professionals and members of the private sector do. We think that’s fair! That’s why we both voted NO to increased taxes at the June 2011 budget meeting. We believe the answer in these challenging times for our school district is in cutting expenditures, not increasing your taxes. We recognize that the greatest source of our success as a District lies in its people, our outstanding teachers and dedicated employees of the District. Our pledge to you is that during these difficult economic times all of our decisions will be made in the best interest of students, always keeping in mind our already overburdened taxpayer, without compromising the quality education that Wyoming Area students and our community expect. Toni Valenti Nick DeAngelo WA School Board Candidates nouncement will promise confidentiality to all applicants until the stage of selecting finalists is reached. Candidates for the position who have already submitted applications would be permitted to amend or withdraw their application. Until finalists are selected, any applicant may withdraw his or her application. Once the Council has selected finalists, their names will be released to the public. I believe this process guarantees fairness to prospective applicants and to Luzerne County citizens. I encourage other candidates and citizens to offer their thoughts on this important matter. We can change the way we govern ourselves. Vote on November 8 as if our future depends on it, for in fact it does. Rick Williams Independent Candidate Luzerne County Council

YO U R O P I N I O N

WP council candidate questions Mundy’s actions The devastation left behind by Tropical Storm Lee has left West Pittston Borough in a state of disrepair never before seen and has once again saddled our beloved residents with financial and emotional burdens though to be a distant memory of Hurricane Agnes. The West Pittston Borough officials had been active participants in this effort. Mayor Tony Denisco and Councilman Brian Thornton had spent countless hours personally tending to the needs of their neighbors and constituents. Despite the overwhelmingly positive and devoted efforts of these public servants, there are a select few including State Rep. Phyllis Mundy who have tried to take political and personal advantage of the vulnerability and fear of this community. Under Section 501 of the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act, municipalities are required to adopt the Uniform Construction Code as their municipal building code. In accordance with Section 7210.501(b) (2) of the PA. Uniform Construction Code, West Pittston Borough, as most other municipalities, elected the state authorized option to administer and enforce the Code by the retention of a third party agency to act on behalf of the municipality for administration and enforcement of the PCCA. The Code also allows for municipalities to enforce their own ordinances which predates the State Acts. It has been erroneously suggested by those who should know better, especially a law-

maker like Phyllis Mundy who voted for this legislation, that West Pittston Borough has inappropriately conferred a monopoly upon Advanced Code Group by allowing that company to perform all inspections in the borough. First, other certified and qualified inspectors are not precluded from providing their expert services to the residents of West Pittston Borough. However, the performance of building code compliance inspections is by law, the exclusive authority of the third-party agency. It has also been mistakenly rumored that West Pittston Borough has charged inappropriate and unlawful fees for building code inspections. Wrong again! Shortly after the flood, West Pittston Borough had waived its portion of any building permit and inspection fees. Furthermore, the Code does not establish fees for permit applications and inspections. All fees regarding building permits and inspections are set by the third-party agency in each municipality and are made publicly available. It is difficult to take Mundy seriously when she suggests that no permit costs or fees should be charged by contractors and inspectors. Does she really expect these people to work for free? Third-party agency contracts and fee schedules obtained from other municipalities, including Ms. Mundy’s place of residence, Kingston Borough, reveal a common industry practice of charging a percentage of construction costs. Additionally, our residents

need to know that had Mundy been successful in stopping permits and inspections in our town, FEMA was prepared to pull back all flood-related financial relief and flood plain protection. Finally, I’d like to thank Congressman Barletta, Senator Yudichak and Senator Casey who showed that they could roll up their sleeves and go to work for the people of West Pittston.

along with most other buildings and homes in low-lying parts of the borough when the Susquehanna River crested at a record 42.66 feet on Sept. 9. About 15,000 books and all furnishings were destroyed. “The flood insurance won’t cover our losses. We’ll have enough to get the building back in shape, but in terms of furnishing it, there’s no money for that. So that’s why we’ve been asking people for used furniture in the meantime,” said library director Anne Bramblett Barr. The library received that and much more.

During the two and a half weeks staff and volunteers spent cleaning out the damaged building and moving about 11,500 books that were saved to dry storage space donated by Cliff and Ruth Melberger, Barr noticed the vacant video store and showed it to library board president John Panzitta, who agreed it was perfect. “It’s really designed exactly how a library should be, with an outdoor slot for returns, a big, beautiful circulation desk. You couldn’t ask for a better location. We called Sandy Insalaco Sr. and he said, ‘Anything for the library.’ We’re getting this rentfree, all the utilities are covered. It’s just a perfect opportunity to get us back on our feet,” Barr said.

Barr thought the hard part would be furnishing the space. Not so much. Allied Services provided 20 computers, a printer and a technician to install it all. After staff sent emails to all Pennsylvania libraries asking for furniture, the library got invitations to send a moving van to Millersville University and Bucks County Public Library for bookshelves and computer tables. “We just sent out a request

... and we were overwhelmed with the response. We had to turn people away. We couldn’t possibly use another table, rocker or anything else.

Pittston Area bit late in loss to Berwick Patriots surrender fourth-quarter lead in 42-31 defeat By Josh Horton

Traditionally Berwick’s Crispin Field is a tough place to play. Most high school football teams are happy to escape with a respectable loss. Not Pittston Area. The Patriots had a chance to turn a cheek to tradition, and held a lead midway through the fourth quarter on Friday night. But the pesky Bulldogs refused to go away as they persevered for a 42-31 victory sending the Patriots packing to its sixth straight loss of the season. The game was an emotional roller coaster for the Patriots right from the coin toss. The Bulldogs scored a touchdown on their first drive. However, the 7-play, 68yard drive which eventually ended in a five yard touchdown for Berwick star running back Jeremy Freeman did not dampen the spirits of the Patriots. Instead, Pittston Area did something about it and they did so in a big way. Quarterback Anthony Schwab may not be known as a threat to throw the deep ball, but he proved his critics wrong when he found star wideout Jordan Houseman for a 71-yard touchdown on the Patriots very first play from scrimmage. Houseman caught the ball around the Berwick 35-yard line and took it the house from there. It was far from an easy touchdown, as Houseman needed a brilliant stutter step to evade the final Berwick defender. Chris Musto drilled the PAT and the score was knotted at 7-7 at the 8:57 mark of the first quarter. Neither team struck again in the first quarter, but the offenses heated up in the second. It was the Patriots who struck first in the second quarter as a 21yard jaunt by junior halfback Justin Wilk, set up first-and-goal. Schwab capped off the drive by lowering his head and driving across the plane for the 1-yard

score. Musto added the PAT and the Patriots were ahead 14-7 with 11:14 remaining in the opening half. Berwick came right back with a 1-yard quarterback keeper of their own. Jared Pierce found the end zone with 7:24 remaining in the half. The touchdown would not have been possible if the Dawgs had not converted on fourth-andinches from the Patriots 14-yard line. Pierce faked the handoff to the fullback and took off to his right, before being brought down inside the 1. Berwick again added the PAT and the game was tied at 14-14. The Patriots offense wasn’t done in the first half. Houseman set up the Patriots with first-and-10 from their own 42-yard line after a 32-yard kick return. With their backs against the wall on third-and-12 from the 40, Schwab hit Houseman down the field for a 30-yard gain. They continued to go to the air as Schwab found Evan Hahn on a crossing route for18 yards putting the Patriots in the red zone. The air attack was working and they didn’t stop it in the first half as the drive was capped by a 13-yard touchdown connection between Schwab and Houseman. Schwab threw it up and Houseman went and got it in the back corner of the end zone on the fade route. Musto split the uprights with the PAT and the Patriots held a 21-14 lead with 4:36 remaining in the first half. Late in the first half Schwab tried to go down the middle for a big gain, but was picked and the Dawgs took over first-and-10 from the Patriot 13. The pick proved to be costly as Pierce went in for a 5-yard touchdown just before halftime to send the teams to the locker room all square at 21-21. The Bulldogs recaptured the lead in the third quarter when Freeman scored on a two-yard rush. They added the PAT and the

PA out-‘manned’ by Elk Lake Lady Warriors featured seven boys in lineup against Lady Patriots

By Matt Page

Dispatch Correspondent

Last season, Pittston Area defeated Elk Lake 3-0 in the last game of the season to jump into the final playoff spot by clinching the third-seed in Wyoming Valley Conference Division 3. This season, the Lady Patriots faced off against Elk Lake again but this time they were already sitting in the No. 3 spot in WVC Division 3 trailing the Warriors by 11/2 games for the second position. The two teams took the field for a doubleheader on Pittston Area’s Senior Day on Tuesday at the Bucky Harris Sports Complex in Hughestown. Elk Lake, which touted seven boys in their starting line-up, was able to come away with two hard-fought victories, 4-2 and 2-1, to sure up the No. 2 spot in WVC Division 3, and set Pittston Area up to be the third-seed out of WVC-3. "Not much (of a disadvantage) really," said PA Head Coach Caitlin Hadzimichalis about the playing against boys. "Yes, some of their hits are a little hard and they might be able to sprint faster genetically, but I don’t think it was that much of a disadvantage, we had our own mistakes that compounded it." In game one, Elk Lake got on the board first at the 23:47 mark but the Lady Patriots answered with one of their own two minutes later, when Emily Herron put the ball into the back of the cage off a Liz Mikitish assist. The rest of the first half went back-and-forth as it ended tied at 1-1. The second half started just how the first ended – a lot of opportunities for the offense but solid defensive plays won out. That was the case until Elk Lake broke the tie again with a goal at the 16:23 mark. However, true to normal Lady Patriot fashion, they fought back, tying the game at twos when Mikitish threw a hard long pass into a scrum in front of the cage. The ball found its way to the stick of

Becca Weinstock who knocked in with just over11minutes left in the game. The two teams fought for the next nine minutes before Elk Lake knocked the ball into the cage after PA couldn’t clear it out of the circle, breaking the tie and giving Elk Lake a 3-2 lead with 2:01 left in the game. The Warriors iced the first game when they scored again with eight seconds left clinching a 4-2 victory and pushing their lead over Pittston Area to two games. Elk Lake outshot the Lady Patriots 10-6 but they came up even in corners with nine each. Ariel Ardo recorded seven saves in the cage for the Lady Patriots. In the second game, Elk Lake got off to a quick start, again getting on the board first when they found the back of the net at the 27:22 mark. PA seemed out-matched by the size and speed of the Elk Lake team as they struggled to maintain any sort of substantial attack, forcing their defense and goalie to come up with big defensive plays to keep them in the game. Elk Lake had an opportunity to take a 2-0 lead when they were awarded a penalty stroke, but Lea Garibaldi came up with a big save as she kicked the ball away to keep the Lady Patriots within striking distance. PA nearly evened the match at the 18-minute mark when the ball squirted across the face of the cage, but no one was on the other end to knock it in. Three minutes later, the Lady Warriors nearly tied it up for the second time when the ball was played into the middle of the circle and then off of a PA stick past the GK, but it rolled wide of the cage and Elk Lake held on to their 1-0 lead. However, that margin didn’t stay for long as EL scored their second goal with 14:27 left in the first pushing the lead to 2-0, a score which held up until the end See WYOMING, Page 54


Matthews wins Durako finishes second East Regional at WVC coaches meet Pittston Area golfer set to defend PIAA crown By Rick Notari

Dispatch Staff

Brandon Matthews fired a 2under 70 to win the PIAA East Regional Golf Championship on Monday at the Golden Oaks Country Club in Fleetville. The Pittston Area senior – and defending PIAA State Champion – recorded two birdies, two bogeys and an eagle on his way to the victory. Matthews finished fifth last year at the East Regional on his way to winning the Patriots first state golf title. As a junior, Matthews won every major high school title with the exception of the regional crown. This season, Matthews finished fifth in the District 2 event while qualifying for the regional event.

The 2011 PIAA State Championships will be held Monday and Tuesday at the Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York. Last season Matthews shot 67 in the final round of the event to finish with a two-day, low total of 3-under 139. The only other District 2 golfers to qualify for this year’s state championship were Delaware Valley junior Cody Cox, who shot 5-over 77, and Abington Heights senior Eric Montella who carded a 7-over 79 before capturing the final berth in a playoff. District 2 champ Ryan Brown of Scranton Prep struggled, carding an 86. Holy Redeemer’s Mariano Medico – Matthews’ top competitor in WVC action this year – shot 85.

Times Leader Sports Editor

It was the kind of dramatic finish that is expected when Dallas’ Regan Rome and Holy Redeemer’s Marissa Durako are racing in the same field. The two traded the lead down the stretch before Rome pulled away by a couple of strides at the end of a grueling run at the Wyoming Valley Conference Coaches Meet on Tuesday at the Wyoming County Fairgrounds. "I knew coming in that the last race was me and Regan," Durako said. "We were neck and neck the whole time. I knew she’d want to win just like I would, and this one turned out the same as the last time, with her going ahead at the end." The pair led the pack the entire second half of the race, topping the field by more than a minute. As the runners came through the midway point of the race, Rome was closely pursued by Durako, a Laflin resident, and teammate Rachel Sowinski. Behind the lead group was another cluster of Dallas runners - Lindsey Oremus, Maggie Fannick and Bryanna Dissinger were among the top eight. But as the runners made their second pass through the crowd and headed for the 2-mile mark, Rome and Durako pulled away. "She just had a better kick at the end," Durako said of Rome. "The last race was more flat, and we came in around 18:30. This time, we improved since we had a similar finish on this course, which was a little hilly." Also in the lead group was Pittston Area’s Cathe-

Top 10 finish

While teammate Catherine Lombardo was battling with the leaders, Bianca Bolton quietly notched her way into the Top 10 with a time of 20:37.11 to finish 10th in the WVC race. Bolton was the only other Lady Patriots runner to finish in the Top 25. Pittston Area had two runners finish in the Top 50, and two additional runners place in the Top 60. Kaitlynn Kutcha placed 33rd with a time of 22:14.99 and Emily Seaman finished 47th with a time of 23:09.40. Olivia Lanza ran a 23:37.65 to place 52nd, and Ashley Menichini finished 57th with a time of 23:51.62. Lucky 13 for Radzwilka

Wyoming Area’s Sara Radzwilka finished 13th at the WVC Coaches Meet, running a 20:47.34 to give the Lady Warriors their only Top 25 finisher. Angela Cocco was Wyoming Area’s next finisher with a time of 24:45.68 to finish 79th. Sarah Crake (27:36.65), Kim Golden (30:13.58), Amanda Ostrowski (30:30.27) and Allison Golden (32:36.11) also ran for the Lady Warriors in the event. Connors, Filipiak lead local boys

Pittston Area’s Jamie Connors and Wyoming Area’s Eric Filipiak were the top finishers among runners from Greater Pittston schools in the WVC Coaches Meet. Connors turned in a time of 18:43.78 to finish 34th, and Filipiak ran an 18:45.43 to finish right behind Connors in 35th. Dominic DeLuca of Dallas won the event with a time of 16:37.40. PA’s Tyler Cummings was next in line for local runners, posting a time of 19:11.78 to finish 44th. Dimitri Shea of Pittston Area ran 78th with a time of 20:23.81, and Wyoming Area’s Steve Barush placed 92nd with a time of 20:56.94.

Last week Old Forge Head Coach Mike Schuback said his Blue Devils couldn’t win without Dave Argust. This week, Argust backed him up. The senior returned a punt and an interception for touchdowns as Old Forge rallied from a 15-point deficit to defeat Mid Valley, 4226, in a key Lackawanna Football Conference Division III battle on Friday night at Spartan Stadium in Throop. But it wasn’t just the two returns that spurred the victory. Argust also thwarted another Mid Valley drive with an INT, and caught three passes for 70 yards. His heroics saved the Blue Devils from an uninspiring first half of play. The Spartans got off to a fast start, scoring on their fifth play from scrimmage – a quick screen from quarterback Martin Walsh to wideout Ronny Tomasetti that the latter turned into a 30-yard touchdown with just1:57 gone from the clock. The two-point pass failed and the Spartans led, 6-0. A quick three-and-out by the Blue Devils gave Mid Valley some momentum, and three plays later, Antonio Russo sprinted 69 yards around the right side for a touchdown. Ryan Cadwalder intercepted the two-point pass for Old Forge, but the Spartans led 12-0. Old Forge answered with 12play, 61-yard drive that Colin Carey capped with a 1-yard plunge. Carey completed four passes on the drive for 67 yards, including an 11-yarder to Argust on thirdand-8; a 27-yarder to Mike Vieira on third-and-4; and a 24-yarder to Lou Febbo on fourth-and-23 from the Mid Valley 29. Febbo ran in the two-point conversion and Old Forge was within 12-8 with 54 seconds left in the opening period. The Spartans came right back as Walsh and Tomasetti hooked up again for a touchdown, this time for a 56-yard strike down the middle of the field with just nine seconds elapsed in the second quarter. The two-point run failed again and MV led, 18-8.

The Blue Devils again put together a long drive, chewing up 67 yards on 10 plays. But when Mid Valley forced an incompletion on third down, Old Forge settled for a 25-yard field goal by Matt Mancuso to get within 18-11with 6:34 left in the first half. Mid Valley again responded as Russo zipped around his left side and went 65 yards untouched to the endzone on the ensuing play from scrimmage. This time the Spartans converted the two-point pass as Walsh found Tomasetti in the corner of the endzone for a 2611 lead with 6:16 remaining in the second quarter. The duo of Russo and Tomasetti accounted for 268 yards in offense for the Spartans to that point in the game. But the Blue Devils defense locked down the playmakers from that point on, allowing the duo to gain just 54 yards the rest of the way. “The first half we slept walked,” said co-captain Anthony Trotta. “But we were able to keep it close enough to give ourselves a chance in the second half. We played the first half like we were playing not to lose. We had to come out the second half and play to win. We were fighting on our heels but needed to fight on our toes. We needed to control the tempo, control the game. We know our defense is key. “We gave up big plays and we shouldn’t have. They are a bigplay team and we didn’t stop them. In the second half we swarmed the football like we were supposed to.” Before the Blue Devils got to halftime they would add a 28-yard field goal from Mancuso to get within 26-14, but it didn’t happen without some excitement. Facing a fourth-and-10 from the MV 22, Carey hit Vieira for a 21-yard gain to the 1 as time expired. But the Spartans were called for pass interference on the play, to give Old Forge one untimed down from the MV11, and a chance to convert for three points. “I think all of our coaches made the best of the 20 minute half-

score was 28-21 Berwick with just over a minute remaining in the third quarter. The Patriots drove all the way to the Berwick 9-yard line on their next possession, but were unable to get in the endzone. Patriots Head Coach Mike Barrett opted to take the points and Musto did just that as he drilled the 24-yard field goal, tightening the Berwick lead to just 28-24 with 8:34 remaining in the game. The Patriots needed the ball back and when Freeman fumbled, and the Pittston Area defenders pounced on the ball giving the Patriots first-and-10 from the Berwick 36-yard line. They then got even closer as Berwick head coach Gary Campbell was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct to give the Patriots firstand-10 from the Berwick 21. Marc Romanczuk then broke loose for a 15-yard gain setting up first-and-goal from the 6-yard line, and two plays later, went up and over the line of scrimmage for a1-yard touchdown. Musto added

the PAT and the Patriots held their second lead of the game at 31-28 with 6:31 remaining in the game. The clock would not tick fast enough for the Patriots as Freeman found the end zone yet again. This time, he scored on an11-yard rush on first-and-10. The PAT was nearly blocked by the Patriots, but instead Berwick led 35-31 with 4:57 remaining in the game. The Patriots began their next drive from their own 20. On the first play of the drive, Romanczuk broke loose for an 11-yard gain. However, on the next play Berwick defenders knocked the ball loose and recovered the fumble. Freeman broke loose again for a 31-yard touchdown to give the Bulldogs a two-score lead with just less than three minutes remaining in the game. Schwab had his best game of the year through the air as he completed 12 of his 19 passes for 239 yards. Houseman caught four passes for138 yards to lead the receivers and Romanczuk had 17 carries for 106 yards to lead the ground game. The Patriots will host the Wyoming Valley West Spartans this Friday at Charley Trippi Stadium.

of the half. Sensing that their backs were against the wall, the Lady Patriots came out with extreme intensity in the second half. They got on the board, cutting the lead to 2-1, when Liz Mikitish fired a shot past the GK and into the cage 5:30 into the half. Pittston Area controlled most of the second half, keeping high pressure on the Elk Lake defense and forcing them to make plays to hold onto the lead. With 16:06 left, Becca Weinstock dribbled down the sideline before badly faking out two defenders with two straight cutbacks. Then, she drove the ball hard across the front of the cage, but no one was able to deflect it in. PA kept applying pressure and continued to keep the ball in Elk Lake’s end of the field, but they could not find the back of the cage and Elk Lake was able to hold on for the 2-1 victory. "(The seniors - Ariel Ardo, Brittany Czerniakowski, Madeline Dworak, Brielle Warren, Gabby Vaxmonsky and Mallory Yozwiak) are a great group of kids and they are good core leadership for everybody coming up," said Hadzimichalis. "They’ve been setting a good ex-

ample for the underclassmen of how to act when they are seniors and what to do when they are in tough situations, so I’m very proud of them." Elk Lake outshot the Lady Patriots 16-12 but PA held the advantage in corners 10-3. Garbaldi had seven saves in the first half for the Lady Patriots and Ardo had four in the second half. PA dropped to 7-5-1 after the two losses but still hold on to third place in Division 3 ahead of GAR who is 7-6. PA 2, Northwest 0

But the defense did not need the extra goal in holding the division-leading Rangers to just five shots on the day. Lea Garibaldi and Ariel Ardo combined to stop all five shots in net for the Lady Patriots.

Cumbo combined for three saves in net as the Lady Warriors outshot the Lady Lions, 26-5. WA 3, Seminary 4

Wyoming Area battled shot for shot with WVC Division 1 power Wyoming Seminary on Monday afternoon in West Pittston, but in the end the Blue Knights had too much fire power as the Lady Warriors dropped a 4-3 decision at the Atlas Sports Complex. Trailing 1-0 in the first half, Brianna Murray tied the score for the Lady Warriors with a one-timer at the 27:01 mark of the first half. Wyoming Area took the lead, 2-1, to open the second half when Serra Degnan scored on an assist from Sam Shiner at the 26:30 mark. Seminary answered withy two straight goals to take a 3-2 lead, but Degnan knotted the score at 3-3 with an unassisted goal with 8:10 remaining in the game. The Lady Blue Knights would get the win however when AshLeigh Sebia scored her third goal of the game just 16 seconds later to give Seminary the 4-3 lead. WA 3, Lehman 4

Lehman answered with three straight goals before Jenna Skrinak scored to get the Lady Warriors within 3-2 at intermission. Sam Shiner then scored on a Degnan assist to open the second half and tie the game at 3-3 at the 25:52 mark. But the Black Knights scored with just over 10

minutes remaining to take the victory 4-3. Emily Wolfgang stopped six shots in goal for the Lady Warriors. Playoff picture

neer City. Junior Jared Heckman made his varsity debut in goal for the Blue Devils and stopped 16 shots. Heckman, normally one of Old Forge’s starting midfielders, held the Chargers scoreless for the f irst 29 minutes of the game. Defenders Tyler Cavalari and Bobby Cipollina also had a hand in holding down the offensive-minded Chargers for much of the f irst half. Carbondale scored two goals within seven minutes before senior J Argonish put Old Forge on the board with a blast from the left side with just over two minutes remaining before intermission. The Blue Devils had chances in the second half to knot the score but Carbondale goalie Ben Gardus shut the door on the Old Forge offense before the Chargers added an insurance goal with just under f ive minutes left. Argonish f inishes his career as the Blue Devils alltime leading goal-scorer with 34 goals, and atop the points list with 89 points.

time,” said Schuback, who is now 6-0 against legendary Mid Valley coach Frank Pazzaglia. “We all talked to our position players and the kids all got together and the coaches did a great job of that. Our seniors, I was really impressed with them. We really rely on a lot on our younger kids, but the seniors are leading them. The seniors were telling them, ‘just stay focused, keep playing, we’re going to be OK.’ “We changed some things up defensively in the second half personnel wise. (Assistant Coach) Dan (Holland) made some switches. Younger kids like Shane (Schuback), (Jorden) Sekol, Ryan Paulish, (Paul) Papi got us going.” The third quarter opened with the Blue Devils going three-and-out, but Sekol stepped in front of a Walsh pass on Mid Valley’s first possession for an interception as Papi apply pressure to the Spartans quarterback. The sophomore linebacker added nine tackles and a fumble recovery to his INT on the night. “Jorden is doing a great job for us,” said Trotta. “But all of our underclassmen are playing with so much heart right now. I can’t credit them enough. Our whole thing is team. We don’t have one main guy. We are a team and that is what we focus on.” Two plays after the interception, Argust hauled in a pass from Carey on third-and-11and took the crossing pattern 34 yards to the Spartans 5 before Carey scored on a quarterback draw to get Old Forge (6-2 overall, 3-0 LFC) within 26-21 with 8:40 showing on the third-quarter clock. The key catch by Argust was a sign of things to come. With less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, Argust took a Chris Merenich punt 58-yards to paydirt to put the Blue Devils ahead, 28-26, after Mancuso’s extrapoint. On the return Argust avoided one tackler just as he caught the punt, sprinted down the Old Forge sidelines, cut back at the 30 where it looked as if he would be knocked out of bounds, and jaunted into the endzone for the score. “When I caught the ball I saw a bunch of guys coming up the middle,” said Argust of his punt return. “Coach Schuback told me if we have the block on to the right, then take it to the left because those guys on the block will be coming back on that side of the field. So I went left and got crazy blocks from Louis (Febbo) and Mike Vieira and I just kept going. There was a great lane. “I saw the guy had a bad angle on me near the sidelines so I just cut back to the middle of the field and just kept going.” On the ensuing Mid Valley possession, the Spartans marched 49 yards to the Old Forge14 on10 plays to set up a first-and-10. But Papi stopped Russo for no gain on first down, and Mid Valley was called for an illegal chop block on second down to push the ball back to the Old Forge 29. On second-and-24, Martin threw for Russo along the visiting sidelines, but Argust was there for the interception at the 1 to thwart the drive. The Blue Devils moved the ball out to their own 35 yard line from there, but the drive stalled and Mid Valley took over at their own 37 with 6:04 left in the game after the Old Forge punt. The Spartans methodically moved into Old Forge territory as Walsh found Tomasetti twice for 11 yards, and Russo once for 13 on a fourth-and-6 screen play. But Walsh eyed up his top receiver one too many times, and on secondand-7 from the Blue Devils eight, Argust made the play of the game. The 6-1, 170-pound defensive back stepped in front of Tomasetti as the ball got to the division’s leading pass catcher, wrestled the ball away from the Division I prospect and sprinted 80 yards to the endzone for the score. Mancuso’s point after gave Old Forge a 35-26 lead with 2:18 to play.

“I saw them throw that pass a couple times to Tomasetti and I knew Jake (Manetti) was going to be over the top on him so I just went in to make the play. At first I felt like his hands were on the ball, but I just ripped it out and started moving.” “In the second half we were rolling Dave and (Brian) Bubba (Tomasetti) on Tomasetti,” added Schuback. “We thought they were going to go wide side a little more than normal, and on that play, someone yelled from the sideline to take away the slant. Dave just turned a little bit and he read the play. “I said if he makes a mistake we are upset, but he saw it and made the play. Dave’s a smart kid and I have a ton of respect for him as a player and as a person. He has a lot of faith in his ability and in my opinion no one has more character.” Argust’s defensive play was the clincher for the Blue Devils, but they weren’t finished scoring as Brian Tomasetti’s 49-yard return of an interception set up Febbo’s 18-yard touchdown run with three seconds left as Old Forge was trying to run out the clock. Febbo finished the night with 72 yards rushing on19 carries, and two catches for 26 yards. Carey went 10-for-22 for 148 yards, and rushed for 45 yards and two scores, while Vieira caught three balls for 47 yards. “The difference in the second half was feeding off the turnovers,” said Schuback. “I said earlier in the week we needed great special teams and some turnovers. We felt we were better on special teams. So that was a key for us. Dave ran a punt back, we almost blocked one, a snap went over their head, and look at (Mancuso). Those two (field goals) are huge. So we knew if we could get them stopped defensively we could get rolling.” The Blue Devils will travel to Dunmore on Saturday afternoon to take on Holy Cross at Monsignor Crotti Field at St. Anthony’s Playground. The Crusaders are 5-3 with all three of its losses coming at home.

OBITUARIES Ryan L. Jones October 19, 2011 Ryan L. Jones, age 30, passed away on October 19, 2011, in Nashville, TN. He was also known as “Troop” by his bandmates and fans. He was born in Scranton, on March 24, 1981. He was a 1999 graduate of Wyoming Area High School and earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology where he was the first student to minor in Music and was selected to play with the highly respected RIT Polished Brass Quintet. His passion for music began with the classical violin training he began at the age of 3 and grew to include a proficiency for the guitar, trumpet, and mandolin. As part of a pivotal senior project in high school, he traded his classical violin stylings for the playful energy of the fiddle when he was given the opportunity to play twin fiddles with the revered Charlie Daniels at the Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre. Including this defining moment, he played alongside Daniels on seven oc-

casions, and prepared him to be an inspired addition to the country music scene. After moving to Nashville in 2004, Ryan joined the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada, and shortly thereafter began playing with the LoCash Cowboys in late 2005. The band’s blend of country-rock created a new sound in country music that was not complete without the unique sound of Ryan’s fiddle. It was not uncommon to see him twirling his bow, tossing it in the air, singing along while playing, and sprinting across stage or jumping off speakers as part of his energetic performance. Outside of his musical career, Ryan was a self-declared “geek” and actively involved in many groups and organizations based on uniting a community with similar interests. He was a member of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion, all-volunteer organizations formed to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes and props, and to proudly facilitate the use of those costumes for Star Wars related events as well

as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Frank and Rose Gubbiotti, and his paternal grandfather Harry Jones. He is survived by his mother Marilyn A. Gubbiotti of Exeter; father Lee Jones of Scranton; brother Brett Jones, Reston, VA; and fiance Essay (Sarah Alice) Hood, Nashville, TN; aunts, uncles and cousins, along with his numerous friends . Funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. from the Gubbiotti Funeral Home, 1030 Wyoming Ave, Exeter, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 a.m. from St. Anthony’s of Padua Church, (St. Barbara’s Parish) 28 Memorial St., Exeter.

SUNDAY DISPATCH

Exeter, Pittston natives to offer pro-bono work at Misericordia It didn’t take long for Stevie Lynn Dorbad ’11, M.S.P.T., to return to her alma mater, Misericordia University. Three months after being one of four valedictorians in her graduating class, the Exeter native and Wyoming Area High School graduate returned to campus to be one of two professional clinicians to staff the new Passan Hall Physical Therapy Center on the lower campus. The collaboration between NovaCare Rehabilitation and the Department of Physical Therapy at Misericordia University has created a professional clinic at 100 Lake St., Dallas Borough, which will provide additional clinical opportunities for Misericordia students majoring in physical therapy, and an additional site for regional residents to receive standard and low-cost treatment for their ailments. “I cannot explain how excited I am to be back and intimately involved with Misericordia University,’’ says Frank Serino, M.S.P.T., market manager of NovaCare Rehabilitation and a 1999 graduate of Misericordia. “We couldn’t have planned it any better having the three of us involved. I feel so comfortable there and excited not only to treat students, staff and community, but also we will be providing learning experiences for the students. “We will be helping in their labs as well as having students spend time with us in clinic. It is

very rewarding to be part of the team,’’ Serino adds. The Passan Hall Physical Therapy Center is similar to any other rehabilitation center staffed by licensed clinicians. It will accept most major medical insurances, including Geisinger, Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and it will provide therapy for orthopedic conditions, sports injuries, workers’ compensation claims, neurological disorders, radiculopathy, gait dysfunction, stroke and more. What separates the new clinic from others in the area is its dedication to providing care to those who cannot afford it, while also providing additional educational opportunities to Misericordia students. “I believe that people who truly need skilled services should not be denied because an insurance company or life circumstances do not provide them the opportunity,’’ says Serino, a Pittston Area High School graduate who is in charge of 12 NovaCare clinics from Philadelphia to Northeastern Pennsylvania. “No one should be denied medically necessary care because an insurance company does not approve due to the level of plan the patient has or the circumstances of the injury,’’ adds Serino, the son of Frank and Angeline Serino. “Insurances place more and more restrictions on care and pay less and less. This should not determine the care a person receives. Granted, we cannot do pure pro-bono work,

but to be able to give to those truly in need is really nice and gives me a sense of gratification in our profession.’’ The Passan Hall Physical Therapy Center is the second low-cost clinic on campus. The Department of Speech-Language Pathology has been providing clinical opportunities to regional clients since 2003 in the Speech-Language and Hearing Center. To date, more than 2,500 people — 1,980 children and 520 adults — have been treated at the clinic by students and faculty members. Misericordia’s latest endeavor to provide outreach to the community also provides a venue for former students to give back to the profession and to remain true to the tenets of MU by helping those most in need. The center’s chief clinicians, Dorbad and Joshua Hogan ’99, ’11, M.S.P.T., D.P.T., NovaCare Rehabilitation center manager, are excited by the opportunity to give back to MU and to people. “I think this partnership will really benefit the local and campus communities as well as give the physical therapy students some great opportunities to experience real cases and learn some of the business aspects of clinic operation,’’ says Hogan, a Drums, Pa., resident and the son of Eugene and the late Marie Hogan. “I think it’s great that Misericordia students have this opportunity, really right on campus. I feel it will be beneficial

Locals offering pro bono physical therapy at Misericordia, pictured from left are Susan Barker, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Physical Therapy at Misericordia University; Frank Serino 9 ` 9, M.S.P.T., market manager of NovaCare Rehabilitation; Joshua Hogan '99, '11, D.P.T., NovaCare Rehabilitation center manager and Stevie Lynn Dorbad '11, M.S.P.T.

for NovaCare, which is looking to grow in the area, as well as strengthening an already strong Misericordia PT program with opportunities that didn’t exist before.’’ “I don’t think you can pick a career in health care without wanting to help those in need,’’ adds the daughter of Susan Dor-

bad who is based primarily at the Orangeville, PA, clinic NovaCare operates. “We realize just how important service is at Misericordia. It is instilled in us as we see the instructors and peers around us. It’s what lets us know there are people that truly care in the world. I’m grateful that I will be able to show it through work

at the new clinic.’’ For more information or to schedule an appointment at the Passan Hall Physical Therapy Center at Misericordia University, please call (570) 674-6230 or the NovaCare Rehabilitation Center in Plains Township at (570) 825-7676. Walk-in appointments are also welcome.

Students at WA Catholic hold student council elections Posters were hung. Speeches were given. And so, the spirited campaigning began. The student body at Wyoming Area Catholic experienced first hand what it means to participate in the election process. In their Social Studies class, students in fourth through eighth grades spoke about voting as every citizen’s right and responsibility. Thus, the election of student council representatives began. Votes were cast for class representatives in first through eighth grades. Two representatives were chosen from each class. Officers were elected at the first council meeting. Mrs. Evelyn Owens, third grade and Mrs. Ann Marie Walsh, eighth grade, serve as moderators for the Student Council. Sixteen class representatives from first through eighth grades gathered in early October to elect the Student Council officers for the 2011-2012 school year. Student Council is committed to service in the school and community. A number of service-related activities are planned for the current school year and we look forward to everyone’s cooperation to ensure success. Pictured from left are the newly elected student council officers at Wyoming Area Catholic, Mrs. Owens, moderator; Sarah Satkowski, vice-president, seventh grade 7; Danielle Morris, secretary, fifth grade; Alexia Mazzarella, president, eighth grade; Erika Serafin, treasurer, sixth grade and Mrs. Walsh, moderator.

Pittston Area Marching Patriots Gear Up For 2011-2012 Season By: Ashley Muchler

If you were to lean out of your house on any Wednesday in October, you might hear children playing in the last warm days of fall, strong autumn winds rushing through the trees, and somewhere, off in the distance, you hear....music? Well, if you live in Pittston, then the music you are hearing belongs to none other than the Pittston Area Marching Patriots, working hard at one of their typical four hour long practices. The Marching Patriots, now under the new direction of Mr.Eric Boylan, are the 2009 and 2010 Calvacade of Bands Champions, and are also the 2009 Atlantic Coast Champions. After a long summer of practicing, the Patriots started their season with a competition at

Blue Mountain High School, receiving 1st place, and went on to compete at Wyoming Area High School, receiving 2nd place. Marching Patriot Senior Katlyn Jumper is very excited about the coming season of the group. "This season is so different but wonderful at the same time," said Jumper. "This is because of the many great people we work with, the show, and the joy of being able to perform for many. If hearts are moved we know we have done our part this season." The Patriots will be hosting a home competition on November 5 at Pittston Area High School. All are invited and are asked to please come and support the Patriots in their last competition before Championships at Hershey Park Stadium. Senior Interviews

WA Catholic helps Holy Rosary School during flooding Students and faculty at Wyoming Area Catholic helped Holy Rosary School in Duryea during their flooding crisis. Due to the loss of all books in the library at Holy Rosary, students at Wyoming Area Catholic were invited to purchase an “Accelerated Reader” titled book during the Scholastic Book fair to donate to Holy Rosary for use in their library and for the Accelerated Reading program. Under the direction of Mrs. Theresa Sabetta, school librarian, students purchased in excess of 500 books

that have been donated to Holy Rosary’s library. The faculty of Wyoming Area Catholic purchased and collected art supplies for the art department and classrooms at Holy Rosary in hopes of replenishing those supplies that were lost. Aclothing drive that was underway at the school during the time of the flooding, was redirected and clothing collected was donated to flooding victims in the West Pittston community who are neighbors to Wyoming Area Catholic.
