Honor can be found in coming in second

Inspiration can often be found in the unlikeliest of places. Some find it from music while others examine fine art. I tend to take being beaten at my own game pretty well, mostly because I’ve never been amazing at anything. Others, it seems, aren’t so keen on the idea of coming in second. Last week, we told you about a story before anyone else, unless of course the cosmic forces behind Daylight Saving Time allowed March 17 to spring ahead of March 16. Like Charlie Sheen, winning is something we celebrate here in the quaint Go Lackawanna offices. They don’t come ter-


CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES ribly often (except for at least three by my count in the last two weeks), but they keep us going. This week, when one news source tweeted their version of time and space, I realized they can’t stand to lose. Not to beat a dead horse, but the story of a Scranton woman who hid heroin and money inside her body came from our staff first. It was posted to at 5:40 p.m. on March 16. We sent it to Facebook at 5:43 p.m. and tweeted

about it at 5:48 p.m., as we often do with stories we think readers will enjoy. A post sent on Tuesday night, now deleted from a competing organization’s Twitter feed, led their followers to believe they had it first. At least two readers, myself included, were quick to correct them before the post was lost. Perhaps only the Library of Congress now has record of it. Go Lackawanna has only existed in its current form since June 2010. We have two full-time staff members, a group of dedicated correspondents and a very talented designer that help us get this product to you each week. Sunday isn’t the only day news happens, so we’ve utilized our site as a way to offer constant data to our readers.

Sometimes that means getting a story first, which drives long-standing news organizations crazy, apparently. In reality, David should never have beaten Goliath. Let’s be honest. Faith and determination, as the story goes, let the underdog win. Posting stories before another local news behemoth is merely a chip out of their armor. Instead of brushing the dust off, they took the hit with a glass jaw. We’ll continue to battle each other for first reports, but in the end neither of us truly win. People who want good, honest, competitive journalism in Lackawanna County are the real winners. There’s no shame in taking second place to anyone, unless you put the shame on yourself.

CRANTON – City Hall hosted one of the final listening sessions of the House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Friday, as panelists offered suggestions on the nation’s future plans to three committee members. The message Friday morning was clear: A new highway reauthorization bill and infrastructure plan must include funding for innovation and investment into research and training.

Tobyn Sitar concentrates as he draws out his plans for a dream playground at the Greater Scranton YMCA on Tuesday.




UNMORE - Eight-year-old Michael Rickert has never seen a 35-foottallslide,butonecould come to Dunmore if his plans for a dream playground are included in an upcoming project at the Greater Scranton YMCA. Rickert was one of more than a dozen children who put crayon to paper Tuesday afternoon, designing swing sets and more in castle-, dinosaur- and garden-themed places to play.

The designs will be considered as the YMCA prepares for a community built playground project culminating on May 14 thanks to the help of Kaboom! and the Met Life Foundation. The community will contribute $8,500 toward the project through various fundraisers, according to Kaboom! Project Manager Danielle Trezek. Kids didn’t take their task as playground designers lightly, either. “I’mgoingtoputinaswirlyslide, maybe some monkey bars, and one of those bridges that wobbles,” Madelaine Pegula, 11, of Throop, said as she sprawled out on the floor

with her playground paper. Her sister, Keli, 9, was adding a tube slide to hers instead. Bothagreedthatbeingabletooffer their ideas to a new playground was “pretty cool.” Their mother, Kelli, said all of her children have come to enjoy services at the YMCA. Kelli Pegula said she’s excited to watch her kids join the community to build a dream playground. “I think it’s awesome. It’s very impressive, and it’s nice to keep the focus on the children of the area,” Kelli Pegula said. “It’s such a great idea. We really need something like this here,” Melissa Kaufman said as her chil-

dren, Eddie, 6, and Mae, 5, were busy drawing out their ideas Tuesday afternoon. “We practically live here, so I know they’re going to enjoy it.” Trezek has led more than 50 playgroundbuilds,andshesaidKaboom! hopes to build their 2,000th playground this year in honor of its 15th birthday. The organization is a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America’s children. “There’s a ton of space out there. Come May 14, the entire space will be transformed,” Trezek said of plans for the 2,500 See DREAM, Page 11

Opening of the Bay Four doors



Scranton resident Cathy Powell cheers as she wins at the Big Six wheel inside the newly unveiled Bay Four of the Electric City Trolley Museum on Thursday night.

The event was held March 24 in honor of Car No. 324, one of the last remaining Scranton trolley cars. Signs at Thursday’s 1920’s-themed “Speakeasy Soiree” advertised the future sale of a one-time only run of scale models of the car to fund restoration efforts.

ton are aging, according to Mayor Chris Doherty. As the city looks to maintain infrastructure, it must also improve it. “I think our challenges are two-fold. One is how we are able to move people, whether it’s from Scranton or northeastern Pennsylvania, to major metropolitan areas,” Doherty said, alluding to a passenger rail system. “The other challenge is the movement of goods and services throughout our state.” Martin Pietrucha, Ph.D., P.E., director of the Thomas D. Larson Pennsylvania Transportation Institute at Penn State University, encouraged the committee to improve funding to transportation surface research and the training of agency professionals. “It is very difficult to innovate in this business,” he said. “We’re really creating a lot of barriers in a variety of ways.” Wilkes-Barre based engineering firm Borton-Lawson Executive Vice President Thomas Lawson said states and municipalities have been doing more with less for the last several years, but that hasn’t slowed the increased cost of materials

museum during “The Office” convention several years ago. Restoring another part of the museum, he said, is vital to recognizing the importance of Scranton’s past. “It takes young people to get the ball rolling to preserve history,” he said. “It’s important for the city to be able to share its history, so its great to revive museums like this,” Diekroeger, 24, of Clarks Summit added.

and labor. “There’s going to come a day when we can’t afford (cement) for our roads. We face global forces for our materials that dramatically impact our ability to spread our dollars further. “We can’t underfund research.” Value-based bidding, he said, will allow municipalities to get a lower bid that offers the best service, as opposed to choosing the cheapest alternative. PennDOT District 4-0 Executive George Roberts said the organization is anxiously awaiting a new highway and infrastructure bill. “We’re looking for some sustainable funding so that we’re going to be able to continue our asset management, but we also have to consider building new. That’s very challenging right now,” he said. District 4-0, which covers Lackawanna, Luzerne, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties, has suffered an annual $135 million shortfall in recent years, according to Roberts. Paul DeAngelo, president of DBI Ser-

vices, told committee members they should consider building “outcome performance standards” into the new bill, defining and supporting good behavior in terms of road construction and maintenance. The importance on including rural planning organizations as well as transportation options for differently abled persons throughout the country were also suggested by panel members Jeffrey Box, president and CEO of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance, and Keith Williams, a community organizer and representative of the Northeast Pennsylvania Center for Independent Living. Following the hearing, Barletta said, “I’m very happy with the panelists who were very passionate in their effort to convince Washington to look at new ways, streamline regulations and do all the things that the common person knows Washington needs to do. “It’s what Washington needs to here, that there are new ideas. It’s difficult for innovation to take place when Washington continues to do things the same way.”


The last transportation authorization law expired in September 2009, and committee members including Chairman U.S. Rep. John Mica (R, Fla.-7) and U.S. Reps. Bill Shuster (R, Pa.-9) and Lou Barletta (R, Pa.-11) have traveled the country since February to gain input an a new bill. “I hope this will be a comprehensive transportation blue print for the entire country,” Mica said. The listening session was held in Scranton at the request of Barletta and was the second to last of 14 total hearings, with a final hearing set for Friday afternoon in King of Prussia. “I’m confident that today’s dialogue will spark a continuing conversation that will lead Pennsylvania and our nation to the forefront of job creation and energy efficiency,” Barletta said.

SCRANTON – A man who told police he set a box spring, tires and other large pieces of trash on fire because they were too big to fit into his garbage cans has been charged with arson. Miguel Mercado, 22, of 341 N. Evans Ct., Scranton, was arraigned March 18 on one count each of arson and reckless endangerment following the fire next to his home that afternoon. According to an affidavit: City fire and police were dispatched Friday afternoon for reports of a structure fire. A large fire next to 341 N. Evans Ct. was extinguished, and the nearly 40foot long blaze did not spread to any nearby homes. Inspector Jack Joyce interviewed Mercado, who said he lit the large garbage on fire using a can of lighter fluid and matches. Full garbage cans were placed under electrical service to the residence, and the fire was less than four feet from the home. Mercado was held for a lack of $20,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for March 28.


SCRANTON – Members of a part of the 2011 Class of Leadership Lackawanna had reason to celebrate Thursday evening as Bay Four of the Electric City Trolley Museum, 300 Cliff St., Scranton, was opened to the public for the first time. The class project, titled “Electric City: Tracks to our Past,” aimed to refurbish the former workspace into another exhibit area for the Trolley Museum. Since December, fundraising efforts have generated more than $23,000 in cash donations and corporate sponsorships, according to project member and Johnson College marketing and communications specialist Heather Davis, 27, of Dunmore. The group received in-kind donations of supplies and manpower from Sherwin-Williams, and restoration specialists Rick Foley and Mike Drumsta built safety partitions for portions of the bay that remain unfinished. Much of the labor, Davis said, was completed by the project members. “We’re proud that we took the initiative and went down and did it ourselves,” she said.

Transfers could bust budget




Boccardo Jewelers co-owners Alex Boccardo, left, of Dunmore, and Tara Boccardo-Bednarz, of Olyphant, display one of the ring boxes sent to the set of "The Office" inside their Scranton store.

‘Office’ proposal had true Scranton style



By MATT HUGHES For Go Lackawanna

SCRANTON – When Michael Scott proposed to sweetheart Holly on Thursday’s episode of “The Office,” he did so Scrantonstyle. The box that held the engagement ring purchased by Scott, played by Steve Carell, came from downtown Scranton jewelry store Boccardo Jewelers. Thursday’s episode featured Scott holding a diamond engagement ring in a black box with the Boccardo name in gold letters on the inside of the box lid. Scott tells his co-workers he spent three times his annual salary on the ring, a mix-up of the adage dictating that a man should spend three-months salary on an engagement ring. The episode is one of the last for star Carell, who has indicated that this season, the show’s seventh, will be his last. “We were just excited about the fact that Steve Carell was holding our ring box,” said Boccardo Jewelers co-owner Tara Boccardo-Bednarz. She said the store shipped ring boxes to the show about one month ago after the show called to ask for them. Staff from “The Office” have also collected promotional items from Scranton-area businesses on several occasions in the past. Boccardo-Bednarz said she had “no idea how (the show’s producers) would have got our names,” but added slyly, “we are

the best place to buy a ring.” She added that the store’s reputation probably played a role in the selection. Founded in 1938, Boccardo is one of the oldest jewelers in the Scranton area. “We’re definitely a reputable jeweler,” Boccardo-Bednarz said. “The stuff that we carry here is pretty exclusive from the Scranton area to two hours away.” A viewing party for the show was also held Thursday night at Martini Bar & Grille, 414 Spruce St. Friends, employees and customers of the store joined store owners for their time in the spotlight.

SCRANTON – Three months into 2011, City Council believes that interfund transfers made by city administration will be “the real backbreaker” of their budget, causing a deficit that may lead to layoffs of public employees this summer. Councilman Frank Joyce, council’s finance chairman, said Tuesday that he received a response to his letter to City ControllerRoseannNovembrinoasking her if she was aware of the administration’s borrowing of $2.9 million from the workers’ compensation trust fund in 2009 to pay salaries, and another $5 million in 2010 for the same reason. Joyce also asked if this money was paid back and if documentation of this could be provided. Novembrinosaidanytransfers from the trust fund to a cash fund did not affect the revenue account, and no paperwork for such transfers are processed through her office. She added that the only involvement of her office with the workers’ compensation trust fund is to review vouchers, reflectingpaymentstotheworkers’ compensation administrator. She was not aware of any transfers either coming into the city or back into the trust fund. Joyce countered that the 2009 audit stated that $2.9 million was owed from the general fund to other funds.

“I’m curious if this money was even paid back to the workers’ compensation trust fund since Mrs. Novembrino indicates that she’s not aware of any transfers from the revenue accounts in the general operating budget to this fund,” Joyce said. “Mrs. Novembrino is indicating that she is unaware of this money being paid back, so now I question was the money even paid back at all?’” Council President Janet Evans questioned the legality of these transfers, whether they were paid back or not. She said this was a violation of the Home Rule Charter, Article V, Section 502: “In addition to other acts required by law or by specific provision of this charter to be done by ordinance, those acts of the City Council shall be by ordinance which…authorize the borrowing of money.” She said this was also a violation of the Administrative Code, Article VI, Section 602: “Council may make supplemental appropriations for any lawful purpose from funds on hand or estimated to be received within the fiscal year and not appropriated to any other purpose.” Both indicate that council must be aware of and approve interfund transfers, and these transfers must be made through legislation, Evans added. While Renda designated this as “borrowing,” she said Novembrino referred to it as a “transfer.”

“Now, the controller states thatthe$5milliontakenfromthe workers’ comp trust fund in 2010 is a transfer, so the language is now changing from ‘borrowing’ to ‘transfer,’ and I think we’ve already established that you cannot borrow with the consent, without an ordinance, that is approved by City Council,” Evans said. Council fears that there is now a $5 million deficit in the city’s $74.9 million budget created by this transfer, which could lead to “massive layoffs of firefighters, police officers, and DPW workers” by the administration. Joyce sent a right-to-know request to current Business Administrator Ryan McGowan to ask if the $2.9 million borrowed in 2009 and the $5 million borrowed in 2010 were ever paid back, and if so, from what fund was it paid back. He also asked if McGowan could specify the amount of money currently in the trust fund and if the fund’s 75 percent reserve level is being maintained. “Is the administration going to blame council come June or July when they try to lay off the public safety manpower and say, ‘Well, there’s a $5 million hole,’?” Joyce said. “This is the real backbreaker. This is what will cause the massive layoffs, not council’s revenue projections…This is $5 million. The amounts that we increased revenues by were miniscule compared to this.”

trailers, but Bolus says these trailers stored his damaged goods and tools for repairing his home. A judge ordered him to move the trailers. Bolus believes the condemnation of his home is a “political” move by the city, criticizing Kelly and other “political cronies,” and said his legal actions will be “extensive.” He said he plans to file suit against the Scranton Sewer Authority, the East Mountain Neighborhood Association, and neighbors Hartman, Mary Dunleavy, Joe Wechsler, and others. “They were warned, and now they can pay the price,” Bolus said. He claims his neighbors have used their vehicles to do further damage to his water pipes and have invaded his privacy by spying on him. “I didn’t know I had to get permission to leave my home. I didn’t know they control my life,” Bolus said.


SCRANTON – City Councilman Jack Loscombe clarified his connection to an employee of StreetSmart Technology, LLC, on Tuesday, saying that his past association had nothing to do with his support for implementation of the new parking meter system in the city. John Miskell, account manager for Georgia-based StreetSmart, offered the city a free 90day100 meter test of his company’s parking meter control and management system in December. Council supported the initiative and projected $300,000 of revenue from the new meters

in the city’s 2011 budget. Loscombe was the council member who brought the new system to his colLoscombe leagues’ attention and set up the initial public caucus that began the process. Loscombe knew Miskell, a Scranton native currently living in Reading, Pa., in high school and said he hadn’t seen “in about 30 years,” until Miskell contacted by him at the end of 2010. See LOSCOMBE, Page 10


SCRANTON – Local businessman Bob Bolus filed a civil action against the city of Scranton on Friday, making good on his public promise to do so last Tuesday when he appeared before City Council. The case will serve as a predecessor to a planned filing this week of a Special Petition for Emergency Relief and a Petition for Injunction that will seek a court order to strike a condemnation notice posted on Bolus’ home, 1531 Birch St. Bolus claimed to council on Tuesday that the notice placed on his door on was “based on a fallacy,” and he tore the notice from the door March 17 and brought it with him to make his intentions public record. Issues with his East Mountain property have been ongoing for over a year, culminating in this most recent incident. Former

Scranton School Board Director Todd Hartman built a home on city-owned property near his private easement, Bolus claims, which led to a legal dispute. A cement truck parked on the property used in the construction of Hartman’s home allegedly crushed water pipes underground leading to Bolus’ residence, causing leaking that gave his home “very little” water pressure. Eventually, Bolus said a water hose behind his washer burst and ran for four to six days, flooding the basement and first floor while he was away, making that part of the home “uninhabitable.” The city condemned the home, despite not inspecting the entire property, which Bolus said is livable on the second floor. Neighbors in the East Mountain neighborhood have claimed that Bolus has continually blocked much of their valuable property with his trucks and

transparency, and accountability through town hall meetings. • Lee Morgan (R), a truck driver, has been attending and speaking at council meetings for over 20 years. Morgan supports creating more small business incubators to make the city “an employment center” and increase tax revenue. He also would like to see more youth programs and improved blight and infrastructure programs. • Giovanni Piccolino (D), owner of Buona Pizza in Scranton, said that council needs the perspective of a business owner who lives and works in the city. The Minooka resident was critical of the mayor’s management of the city and is in favor or lowering taxes. • East Mountain resident Joe Wechsler (D), who works in manufacturing, said he would like to see city government focus on fixing blight issues in the neighborhoods as opposed to the downtown area. He feels his management experience could benefit the city’s economic development.


SCRANTON – Gearing up for the upcoming primary election, the candidates vying for two seats on City Council met in council chambers on Thursday evening for a question and answer forum. The Scranton and Lackawanna County Taxpayers’ and Citizens’ Association hosted the forum, giving each candidate 15 minutes to answer seven questions. Candidtate Tom Charles (D) did not appear, and Joseph Matyjevich (D) recently dropped out of the race. A brief summary of each candidate’s background and views follow, listed in alphabetical order by last name: • John Loscombe (D), a retired firefighter working in the appraisal and insurance industries, was appointed to Bill Courtright’s seat on council in January of 2010 after Courtright was elected tax collector. The West Scranton resident expressed his opposition to Do-

herty’s management of the city and seeks to further reduce taxes and “cut the fat” from the budget. Restoring decorum to council meetings, seeking answers to citizens’ questions, and addressing blight and public safety issues are among his top priorities. • Bob McGoff (D), a retired school teacher and basketball coach, has served on council for about five years. The South Scranton resident feels that the current budget “will be increasingly difficult to maintain” and would favor a tax increase to boost revenue. One of his priorities is to “create a dialogue” between council and the administration. McGoff would also like to promote more “business enterprise” in the city. • West Scranton resident Doug Miller (D) has been active in local government “from a young age,” becoming the founder and president of Scranton Junior City Council. A regular speaker at council meetings, he said he would promote more open government,

Police: Dealer did business in school zones By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES

SCRANTON – A 24-year-old city man allegedly sold cocaine and heroin to an undercover officer within 1,000 feet of two separate school zones in the last week. Xsavier Lyle Harrison, of 100 Green Pl., Scranton, was arraigned March 22 on two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and delivery of said substances in a school zone, and one count each of possession with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, and criminal use of a communication facility. According to an affidavit: Harrison allegedly sold five packets of cocaine to the officer at the intersection of Sanderson Avenue and Ash Street, near John Adams Elementary School, on March 18. On March 22, the undercover officer contacted Harrison and later picked him up at the intersection of Capouse Avenue and Phelps Street. Two blocks away, at the intersection of Capouse Avenue and Olive Street, he allegedly sold the officer seven glassine packets of heroin. The intersection is near Scranton High School. When police searched Harrison, they found 16 glassine packets containing suspected heroin, two plastic baggies containing suspected marijuana, a Virgin Mobile phone confirmed to have been used as a “buy phone,” and $136 in cash, $130 of which was used in the heroin purchase. Harrison was held for a lack of $40,000 bail, and a preliminary hearing is set for March 31. According to court records, Harrison was simultaneously charged with delivery of a controlled substance and criminal use of a communication facility following an unrelated controlled purchase of heroin by a criminal informant on January 6, 2011.

CRANTON – The auditorium of Scranton High School was nearly packed to capacity Tuesday evening as the district’s Budget and Finance Committee held an informational meeting on the proposed cuts to education in Gov. Tom Corbett’s 2011-12 budget.

Superintendent William King’s PowerPoint presentation served as the focal point of the meeting. In it, King pointed out the December 2010 passage of a budget with no tax increases that included $53,976,

600 from the commonwealth – approximately 46 percent of their operating budget of $116,534,188. State funding from the administration of former Gov. Ed Rendell increased over the last several years, leaving a positive impact on standardized test scores, according to King. Math scores increased by 27 percentage points from 2003 to 2010 as reading jumped 10 percentage points. “I think this clearly says that we’re

getting the job done,” King said. According to statistics provided to the district by the Education Law Center, proposed cuts in Corbett’s budget total $6,051,019 – a 14.17 percent loss in income. If the cuts to Basic Education Funding, Accountability Block Grants and other programs pass as planned, the district could replace full-day kindergarten with half-day classes after providing full-day service since the 1960s; eliminate afterschool tutoring, dual enrollment programs for college credit, and seventh and eighth grade sports; and reduce staff. “They need full-day kindergarten.

Assault case heads to court By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES

SCRANTON – The case of a Scranton man who allegedly attacked a priest inside St. Ann’s Monastery on Ash Wednesday while high on so-called bath salts is headed to court following a preliminary hearing on Monday.

monastery where he said Foley was standing with his back turned to police, he said in testimony Monday. Carroll said Foley first told him he “didn’t know” his name, then identified himself as Ryan Kirkpatrick. When the name and date of birth returned no results in a police database, he gave his proper name. Foley was checked for weapons, and a pocket knife was found in the pocket of his jeans, according to Carroll. There were blood stains on his pants, and a wooden mallet was placed on a chair near where he was standing. A piece of twine and a pair of rolled-up black gloves were also found in Landry’s room, Carroll said. Defense motions to dismiss on charge of aggravated assault and burglary were denied. Foley is still being held for $100,000 bail. A pretrial conference is set for May 6 at 9 a.m.


SCRANTON – A woman charged with possession of heroin, including more than 50 full bags and hidden inside a body cavity along with prescription drugs and money, waived her preliminary hearing Monday morning. Karin Mackaliunas, 27, of Scranton, faces two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance with an intent to deliver. She was arrested following a car crash in the city on March 13. In the back seat of a patrol car, she allegedly would not stop moving around and put her hands down her pants. Mackaliunas was searched for drugs at Community Medical Center after she admitted to police she hid them inside her body. Following Monday’s waived hearing, her bail was modified from $25,000 to $10,000 unsecured. She is required to report daily to the Scranton Police Department and is prohibited from using drugs or alcohol.



Ryan Foley, 25, of Scranton, faces one count each of burglary, simple assault, criminal trespassing and providing false identification to law enforcement and two counts of aggravated assault for his alleged role in the attack on the Rev. Francis Landry early March 9. Scranton police have said that Foley was under the influence of bath salts which he and a friend had abused up to four times during the

evening before the attack. During testimony Monday, Landry said he awoke at about 2:30 a.m. on March 9 and observed the silhouette of a figure between his bed and a window in his room. Before he could get out of bed, Landry said he felt the “blunt force of being beaten.” When the attack ended and Landry turned on the lights, he realized he was bleeding from several places, including what he called a “serious wound” to his hand. Landry received six stitches in wounds to his hands and face, was cut in 10 other places and bruised in about six other locations, he said Monday. He said his right jaw line bears a scar from the incident. Scranton Police Sgt. Thomas Carroll responded to the March 9 call for a report of a “priest being assaulted at St. Ann’s Monastery.” Carroll entered a back door to the

Miskell had approached the city a year prior, meetings with members of the administration and the Scranton Parking Authority, but his calls and letters to them since went unreturned. Miskell discovered Loscombe’s name and role on City Council in a newspaper online and reached out. After listening to Miskell’s pitch, Loscombe said that he felt the meter system was an “innovative” way to generate revenue “without it coming out of taxpayers’ pockets.” “That’s as innocent as it was.

Other than that, I have no connection with Mr. Miskell,” Loscombe said. “I don’t see him. I don’t speak to him on a regular basis.” StreetSmart meters have already been installed in Easton, Pa., where the business was determined a sole source provider of the technology, allowing the company an exclusive contract with the city. The implementation of the system in Scranton has been delayed by ongoing debate as to whether or not StreetSmart is actually a sole source provider. If they are found not to be, a request for proposal must be issued in order to secure the lowest bid for the project. Other “smart meter” companies have already contacted the

Scranton Parking Authority, saying that they are interested in submitting bids. Loscombe said his eagerness to see a new system implemented only reflects his hope for generating more revenue and his impatience with city administrators. “I don’t care if it’s Streetline, StreetSmart, StreetTop – whatever it is, whoever gives us the best deal that benefits the city, that’s what I’m all about. The problem is we’ve been dragging our feet... I don’t know why the city administration has been dragging on this other than to embarrass us with trying to reduce our income at a time when this income is so sorely needed,” Loscombe said.

The evacuation of the building was the second of its kind this month. Students were sent to the high school on March 3 when a faulty gas regulating valve released an odor of gas into the building, according to district Director of Facilities and Grounds Bill McDonough. McDonough said a strong odor of gas at the back of Willard Elementary was reported by a parent at about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday. A gas valve on the Hampton Street side of the building often “purges” excess gas pressure, McDonough said. When the district’s plumber took gas level readings outside Tuesday, however, they were “pretty high.” School officials contacted UGI

McDonough added that “there’s no gas in the building” and that the district didn’t foresee any other safety concerns.

CRANTON – At a presentation held inside Scranton City Hall on Tuesday afternoon, business owners identified as vendors of legal synthetic drugs disguised as bath salts and incense were strongly encouraged to remove the products from their shelves.

squarefootplaygroundthatcould include the addition of walking trails and benches to build a “complete play space.” YMCA Community Outreach Director Paula Scotchlas said a stage may be added and used as an outdoor classroom. Children from six weeks old to age 13 utilize the YMCA’s services, she said.

In video shown Tuesday of one user, the man said he used bath salts three times a day and had neglected to eat for three days even though the highs made him feel “terrible.” He told police he felt he was being shot at while seated in the back of a patrol car. Synthetic marijuana has a “stronger foothold” in the region, according to Klein. The products can be smoked or eaten, and some cannabinoid compounds can be 45 or 800 times stronger than traditional marijuana. One 18 year old Iowa man under the effects of “spice” or “incense” claims he told friends he

felt he was in hell, went home and committed suicide. One ounce of salts can cost nearly $30 while a four-pound carton of Epsom salt cost $2. Eighteen ounces of traditional incense costs $4, while the socalled incense being abused costs roughly $20 for an ounce. Current House Bills 176, 567 and 365 are each crucial pieces of legislation yet to be passed that address individual compounds, Klein said. Kelly said the city is closely monitoring state and federal legislation on the national problem. “We want to do it right. We want to make it legal, make it

iron clad.” In the meantime, “We’re actually begging you, remove these things,” Kelly said. Atty. Todd O’Malley told the various business owners in attendance that lawsuits will follow should someone under the influence of synthetic drugs or a victim of someone under the influence comes to his office with a case. “I can absolutely assure you of this: The money damages will far outweigh any profit motives they have in selling these things. “You’re playing with fire, and you’re playing with people’s lives.”

Massage parlor worker charged with prostitution By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES

MOOSIC – An employee of a Moosic massage parlor faces charges for the alleged criminal solicitation of sexual acts towards an undercover Pennsylvania State Trooper. Jae Kyung Oh, 47, whose address matches the address of Oriental Body Works/Zen Shiatsu, 4215 Birney Ave., Moosic, in a criminal com-

plaint, allegedly made advances toward a state trooper on March 18, just after 12:30 p.m. According to an affidavit: The trooper entered the business to receive a massage, paying $50 for one half hour. After removing his clothes, Oh, who identified herself as “Annie,” offered a sexual act for an additional $40.

She allegedly later told the trooper she did “everything,” implying sexual intercourse, for an additional $100. The trooper said he needed more money, got dressed and left just before 1 p.m. Oh faces one count of prostitution following an arraignment on March 18. She was released on $10,000 unsecured bail, and a preliminary hearing is set for March 28.




Assistant District Attorney Robert Klein illustrates the difference between actual incense and synthetic drugs during a presentation with various business owners Tuesday afternoon.

SCRANTON – A man arraigned March 14 for prowling after attempting to enter a University of Scranton residence faces similar charges for a March 23 incident. Alvin Hosie Moore, 26, listed as homeless, was arraigned on charges of prowling at night and false identification after police say he was found outside 1515 Vine St., Scranton. According to an affidavit: Moore told police he was waiting for a cab when he was discovered standing on the porch of the Vine Street home. Officers confirmed that a cab company was never contacted. When asked for his name, he said he was Jamel Brown but gave his own birthday. No records under that name were found in a police database. Fingerprints taken at police headquarters revealed that the man was really Moore. According to court records, charges against Moore for a similar incident at the University of Scranton earlier this month were dismissed at a preliminary hearing Monday, March 21, before District Judge Terrence Gallagher. Moore was held following the most recent incident for a lack of $1,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for March 30.


Lackawanna County District Attorney Robert Klein led the presentation. Products like incense and bath salts are often misnamed to disguise their true purpose, he said. “It’s not grandma’s bath salts,” Klein said. “It’s not Epsom salts… The stimulants we’re talking about have properties similar to mephedone, MDPV (methylenedioxypyrovalerone), psychoactive drugs that will mimic the effects of cocaine, ecstasy, meth.” People abuse the products as an alternative high that, until recently, was untraceable. Testing is currently very expensive, Klein said. The neurological effects can last for days or weeks, Klein said. “Some of our worst users… they’re saying it’s the worst high they’ve ever experienced.” Paranoid delusions are indicative of abuse of the synthetic drugs. One bath salts user allegedly tried to “cut the demons out” from inside his body using a mechanical pencil, Klein said.

district. We’ve had really strong early childhood programs,” King said. “Their only fighting chance in life is a good, solid education. We can’t have the governor settle this budget on the backs of the most vulnerable children in this state.” Calling the proposed budget an “assault on public education,” State Rep. Ken Smith (D, PA-112) said, “If we mess this up, we lose a generation.” More than half of the 144 failing schools in the state are in the Philadelphia area, according to Smith, who said the commonwealth should not “reinvent the wheel for the sake of a few.” In a speech that at one time received a standing ovation, Scranton Federation of Teachers President Rosemary Boland said, “These people in Harrisburg want to do one thing: They want to privatize the public school system in the state of Pennsylvania… This must stop, and we can stop it.” David Smolsky, a parent of children in the district, criticized and challenged the board to be proactive, not reactive, and to plan for the cuts as proposed. “Don’t just budget for 2011. Budget for 2015. Make a plan. Don’t be reactionary,” he said. Board Director Nathan Barrett will feel the impact of cuts in two ways as his job at Riverside Jr./Sr. High School is on the line. Riverside plans to “shave from each department,” and Barrett said he is the “low man” in the phys ed department. Raising taxes in Scranton could only secure up to $1 million of the $6 million that could be lost, he added. Therefore, Barrett feels the focus will have to remain only on the immediate school day to combat shortfalls. “Anything that’s not an actual instructional day, we have to look to eliminate,” he said. “We’ve got to play with the hand we’re dealt.”

SCRANTON – After meeting quietly in the lower room of St. Patrick’s Church since October, nearly two dozen members of the West Scranton-Hyde Park Crime Watch took to the streets Thursday evening for the first of many planned walks through their section of the city. Joined by Scranton Police Chief Dan Duffy and Sgt. Bob McCool, members started and ended at the Fidelity Deposit and Discount Bank at Luzerne Street and South Main Avenue, coursing through alleys and side streets while pointing out some troublesome homes. When asked by onlookers

to promote a message of public-private partnerships between concerned citizens and the police force. The “Be Part of the Solution” campaign currently includes public service announcements and bumper stickers. Neighborhood watch signs are due in the near future. “It goes to show you how dedicated this group is to carry out their mission. It’s a great show of force to the criminal element. People are going to see neighbors out walking around and they’re going to take notice that we mean business,” Duffy said during Thursday’s walk. “They’ve got our back, and they know we’ve got their back.”

Bouncing Souls stay positive By RICH HOWELLS

Unlike many short-lived ‘80s punk rock acts that burnt out quickly, The Bouncing Souls have been inextinguishable for more than two decades. As singer Greg Attonito picked up his phone for a recent interview while on vacation in Hawaii, the reason became clear – they never stop thinking about music or their dedicated fans. The band will stop at Eleanor Rigby’s, 603 Scranton Carbondale Highway, Jermyn, on Friday, April 1. With an April 12 release of a live six-song set for Side One Dummy Records’ “Complete Control Sessions” series, other members of the quartet have started writing for their next record while Attonito works on a solo effort he has hoped to record for years. “I wanted to do something that was just me. I am responsible for everything and I can kind of see what I’m made of, in that sense, because I’ve always been in a group dy-

IF YOU GO What: The Bouncing Souls with The Menzingers, Dirty Tactics, The Great Explainer Where: Eleanor Rigby’s, 603 Scranton Carbondale Highway, Jermyn When: Friday, April 1, doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m. Cost: $16, $18 day of show

namic,” Attonito said. “It’s been a really good learning experience for me in a lot of ways.” After releasing eight full studio albums and numerous EPs, singles, compilations, and live albums, he admitted it was a challenge to continue producing quality songs, but one he has never taken lightly. “I constantly have to question why I’m doing it, what I want to say here, and why I want to say it, because otherwise I’m just doing it because it’s a job or because I want to make money or just to write a song to put something out because people are going to buy it just because it’s a Bouncing Souls song. I don’t want to do music like that, so I really want it to be meaningful to me,” he explained. Their legacy, he feels,

is their consistently positive outlook an enjoyment of life, an attitude that he has embraced in his personal life as well. “I’d say we took the positive things we liked from punk rock and ran with it,” Attonito said. “We’re brothers. We do enjoy being with each other for the most part, and that’s what we always try to bring to the show. I think that’s why people come back, because there’s a feeling there that we do love each other, we care about each other, and we care about the music.” While much has been said about the decay of the punk rock scene, Attonito is just as passionate about music now and finds its outlook as bright as ever. “The idea of ‘scene’ has completely changed in what I thought the scene was from the late ‘80s, early ‘90s and into the year 2000. Just even that word has a different definition now. There are so many different scenes,” he said, citing the internet as a positive influence in that change. While the band used to have to promote their shows by printing expensive postcards and fliers, they now just post news to

their website or social networks. “Music is definitely going stronger than ever. I guess it’s going great – it’s just different.” The New Jersey-based band has never forgotten their roots, either, despite their accomplishments. Often supporting regional acts to help them gain an audience, The Bouncing Souls will be playing at Eleanor Rigby’s with The Great Explainer from Trenton, N.J., Dirty Tactics from Philadelphia, and The Menzingers from Scranton. “It’s really where we came from on day one. We were in a band, we knew guys in bands around us, and we would do stuff together,” he said. “It’s just our mentality.” “Now that we’re a more successful band, it’s become a part of what we do.” This theme of “giving back” will continue with an acoustic show in Seattle, Wash., at the Porchlight Coffee Shop on April 9, with all proceeds from the $5 show benefiting victims of the recent disaster in Japan. Fans can also donate at, he said. “We’re all in this together.”

ever. He tires of his violent profession and wishes to return to human form, but this can only happen if he finds a suitable replacement. Cut to Kirsty Cotton, whose character returns for the first time since 2002’s “Hellraiser: Hellseeker.” After her new boyfriend leaves her home, a depraved servant of Pinhead delivers a letter to her mailbox, closing the first issue.

I’ll tell you this – I never looked at a Rubik’s Cube the same way again. Without Clive’s consistent involvement, however, the series quickly declined. The second film, which continues Kirsty’s story, is worth mentioning, but it all goes downhill from there. Diehard fans of the series have been tortured as often as the Cenobites’ victims. “Hellraiser: Revelations” will fare no better when it is released later this year. Actor Doug Bradley, who always portrayed the lead Cenobite, Pinhead, even admitted that the film was rushed into production so the studio would not loose the rights. He chose not to reprise his iconic role for the first time in the series’ history. Consequently, fans such as myself have often turned to comic books to continue the story, such as Marvel Comics’ excellent series, which is starting to be re-released as “Hellraiser: Masterpieces Vol. 1” this month. Much more exciting, however, is the start of a new ongoing series called “Clive Barker’s Hellraiser,” and the title doesn’t lie – the awesomely perverse author is actually returning to the series he created for the first time since the original film. An ultraviolent, eight-page preview was released online a few weeks ago, showing that even a man of the cloth isn’t safe from the clutches of Hell, and the debut issue was just released last Wednesday. Staying in continuity with the films but hopefully not retaining their successive quality, the beginning focuses on Pinhead, whose face is looking as spiny as

When it comes to movie franchises, very few sequels hold up as well as the original film, and this is especially true of most horror films. The “Hellraiser” series, created by horror fantasy author Clive Barker, is a perfect example of this, but thanks to comic book company Boom! Studios, Barker will have an opportunity to set things right, albeit in a different format. Adapting his novella “The Hellbound Heart” for the big screen, Barker found a mainstream audience with 1987’s “Hellraiser,” which was also his full-length directorial debut. He signed the right away and chose not to return for its eight subsequent films, supposedly underestimating their runaway popularity. His name would always be synonymous with “Hellraiser.” For those unfamiliar with the cult classic, “Hellraiser” is the story of a mysterious puzzle box that, when solved, opens a gate to Hell, where demons called “Cenobites” torture you for all eternity. An amoral man named Frank Cotton, who was killed in this manner, attempts to resurrect himself with the help of his mistress, Julia. She lures victims to the place he was murdered, and Frank drains them of their blood to restore himself. When Kirsty Cotton, his niece, discovers the plot and is tricked into solving the box herself, she makes a deal with the Cenobites to return Frank to them. While that doesn’t seem like the most pleasant premise, it’s certainly a compelling one. The groundbreaking special effects hold up quite well today, and the dark imagery that surrounds every scene is unforgettable. The story explores the fine lines between pleasure and pain and good and evil. While it often gets lumped in with other horror franchises, it certainly goes places that Jason or Freddy never would.

to show us now that he is not limited by censors, a movie studio, or a real-life budget, and for the first time in years, I’m eager to explore “the further regions of experience.” As a rare opportunity to watch a master of horror return to what made him great, I encourage you to do the same and support this innovative endeavor. It may tear your soul apart, but at least your suffering will be legendary.

the servant’s purpose and not much more. Included at the end of the book is a 16-page story from “Hellraiser: Masterpieces,” written by co-creator/director of “The Matrix” trilogy, Larry Wachowski. While this is a nice addition for those who never read the out-of-print Marvel series, it’s a bit of a cop-out. While I feel that Clive’s return to the series should have warranted its own double-size issue, I was thrilled to see him back behind these characters. Reestablishing Kirsty as the main “hero” was a smart move. I’m sure that he has such sights

Filming for ‘Rocky’-themed documentary begins locally By RICH HOWELLS

pion Larry Holmes. Holmes, who fought many times in Scranton, was “thrilled” to discuss “Rocky” with them, they said, and he vividly recalled a conversation about boxing he had with Kunda when he was a teen, convincing him that he wasn’t cut out for the sport despite his love of the films. Locally, shooting locations included the boxing ring at the Weston Field House, the Riverfront Sports Complex, the roof of the Electric City Garage, and his parents’ home in West Side. “I’m so proud of Scranton. I love this city. If this can help promote the city - Weston Field, the Miners - everyone will know the opportunities that are here,” Kunda said. Jerry Foley, a groundskeeper at West Scranton Intermediate School, told the filmmakers his “Rocky” story at the Weston Field House, where a “Rocky” poster hangs alongside real boxing promotional advertisements. Foley was a local boxer in the 1970’s. “(Boxing) is very, very hard. It’s a lot of obligation. It could take a street-wise punk like me, bring him to the gym, and make him a man, and that’s what happened,” Foley said. Foley said he has seen a lot of great things come out of Scranton, and he suspects that Kunda could be one of them. “He looks like a young Rocky. Pebbles!” he joked. “I See DREAM, Page 18




CRANTON – Sylvester Stallone may have shot his last “Rocky” film, but another Rocky’s story has just begun. On March 19, a small film crew drove into Scranton to embark on their second day of shooting a documentary inspired by “Cue the Rocky Music,” a memoir written by city native Mike Kunda. The book recounts Kunda’s childhood dream of growing up to be just like the fictional boxer Stallone portrayed. In a way, he would end up fulfilling that dream decades later by becoming a professional Rocky Balboa impersonator in Philadelphia, winning a look-alike contest there in 2006. As a “thank you” to his hero, he wrote the book about how the movie series, and the man behind it, inspired him. He quickly realized that many other fans had stories to tell, so he recruited fellow “Rocky” enthusiast Jim Toscano to direct the unique documentary.

The two met near the set of “Rocky Balboa,” the final film of the series, in 2006 in Philadelphia. Both were waiting out in the cold to catch a glimpse of Stallone, and their conversation led to their current friendship. Working as a video producer for an advertising agency, Toscano felt compelled to make the story his first feature-length film. “I felt like if I didn’t do it, somebody else would, and it would kill me. And I’m a ‘Rocky’ fan. I’ve always heard that the only way you can do a good documentary is to do it about something you’re passionate about,” Toscano said. After working all week, Toscano and his brother-in-law, Sean Johnston, the film’s production assistant, drove nine hours from their homes in Detroit to Camp Hill, Pa., where Kunda currently resides. Their first stop Friday was in Easton, Pa., where they met former Heavyweight Cham-

backyard. It’s easy to take our mountains, forests, and lakes for granted, particularly if we have lived here our entire life and don’t realize just how uniquely blessed we are. Our man-made treasures sometimes experience the same fate.

Be it the wonderful old homes that grace many of our neighborhoods, the still impressive commercial buildings that hearken back to our economic heyday or the magnificent public structures now well into their second century of service, Scranton is replete with buildings of character and great beauty. This is certainly true of the stately French Gothic structure at the corner of North Washington Avenue and Vine Street – the home of the Scranton Public Library since June 1, 1893. While the story of Albright Memorial Library is generally known, it bears repeating. Joseph Albright and his wife, Elizabeth, came to Scranton about 1850, settled in at the corner of North Washington and Vine, and raised two sons and two daughters. The eldest son, John, went on to become a

500 VINE successful industrialist in Buffalo, N.Y. When John got word that the city fathers were looking to create a public library, he immediately offered to erect an appropriate building on the land where the family homestead once stood. Three years and $125,000 later, the ribbon to the Albright Memorial Library was cut and citizens of Scranton took possession of Mr. Albright’s gift. Why would someone spend what amounted to a king’s ransom at the time to erect a public library for a city he had long ago left? A fair question – one that Albright anticipated, and answered in a letter dated January 24, 1890: “The motives prompting us to make this donation are to provide a suitable literary and educational element for the elevation of people of all classes, and at the same time provide a suitable memorial of the late Joseph J. Albright and his wife Elizabeth who spent so many of the best years of their life in this city.” Stripping away the flowery rhetoric of the day, Albright built the library to be used by people to enrich their lives. In the process, the memory of Joseph and Elizabeth would be suitably perpetuated. While much has changed in the almost 118 years since the library first opened its doors, the mission is unchanged.

What: “Sucker Punch” Directed by: Zack Snyder Starring: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino and Oscar Isaac Running time: 109 minutes Rated: PG-13 for violence, intense action, profanity, adult themes★ 1/2

plot — is that Baby Doll (Emily Browning), the sorry lass who’s been committed to Lennox House for the Mentally Insane by her sleazeball stepdad, is set to have a frontal lobotomy. OK, if you’re a 15-year-old boy (or a 30-year-old boy or a girl with a ’50s pin-up jones), there’s no denying that the girl-gang casting of “Sucker Punch” — pouty, pig-tailed Browning; the regal, Nicole Kidman-esque Abbie Cornish; punky Jena Malone; plucky Vanessa Hudgens and the exotic Jamie Chung — has a certain allure. But even with the strip-club fantasy costumes and the drop-downs into video game-like alternate uni-

verses, the eye candy quickly gets stale. Baby Doll is sent to this gothic hilltop asylum, where she shares a ward with the aforementioned inmates, named Sweet Pea, Rocket, Blondie and Amber. Oscar Isaac is Blue, Lennox House’s sinister overseer. One way to keep track of which reality Baby Doll finds herself in is to watch Isaac’s face: if he has a thin mustache going and he’s in shark skin, it’s the nightclub/bordello reality. If he’s clean-shaven, in a white caretaker’s jacket, it’s the “normal” world.Gugino (Snyder’s muse: she was in “Watchmen,” too) likewise changes appearance. “Sucker Punch,”

in case this hasn’t been made clear, toggles back and forth, to and fro, between alternating mindscapes, as Baby Doll and her team embark on an epic scavenger hunt. They need to find a map, then fire, then a knife and then a key. “The fifth thing is a mystery,” intones Scott Glenn, playing a kind of Zen master who seems to have boned up on his riddle-me-this delivery by watching episodes of David Carradine’s “Kung Fu.” “Begin your journey,” he tells Baby Doll. “It will set you free.” Exit the theater. It will set you freer.


ucker Punch,” a barrage of green-screen effects and comic-book portentousness from “300” and “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder, is hands-down the most nightmarishly awful film of the year. A field day for schoolgirl fetishists and fanboys with a penchant for steampunk, this staggering failure borrows from Baz Luhrmann’s “Moulin Rouge,” Marc Caro and JeanPierre Jeunet’s “The City of Lost Children,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” and a variety of psych-ward melodramas from “The Snake Pit” to “The Uninvited.” If that sounds like it’d make for a cool mash-up, maybe it would have — if Snyder had anything on his mind apart from exploding zeppelins, fire-breathing dragons, Japanese samurai fights and Carla Gugino doing a campy Polish accent. One of the creepier aspects of the plot — if you can call this ricocheting pastiche a

Villa Maria controlled game flow


By TOM ROBINSON For Go Lackawanna

STATE COLLEGE – There are teams around District 2 that tend to torment opponents more with pressure defenses. But, it is hard to find teams that more effectively control opponents with their half-court defense as Dunmore has done in its latest run of championships. The Lady Bucks, the six-time defending Lackawanna League Division 2 and District 2 Class AA champions, had to go all the way to the state championship game to run into one. “It was difficult to execute against them,” said Dunmore senior guard Ashley Murray, who was averaging 23.5 in the state tournament before being to held to 10 points on 3-for-15 shooting in Friday’s 62-39 loss to Villa Maria Academy. “They were very similar to the way we played.” That is not always the case. Against lesser opponents, the Victors frequently take the ball away with a suffocating defense that paved the way for 10 wins by 53 or more points. Concerned that trying to take the ball away from Dunmore’s veteran guards might be too risky, Villa Maria interim coach Doug Chuzie had his Victors instead concentrate on taking away shots. “Our game plan coming in was to try to limit Murray at the 3-point line,” Chuzie said. “We also had the game plan coming in to contain Corinna (Palko) and Alexa (Gerchman) as much as possible. “We didn’t try to pressure because of the way we’ve seen them penetrate defenses when we looked at them on tape. Alexa proved it in the third quarter. When you get up on her too tight, she can get into the lane.” Gerchman drove for six points and an assist in the final 1:45 of the third quarter for Dunmore’s most productive offensive burst of the game. Most of the game, however, Dunmore had trouble finding See VILLA, Page 29

TATE COLLEGE – Villa Maria Academy and Dunmore played the required 32 minutes in Friday’s Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AA girls’ basketball final. The outcome, however, was all about a 12-minute stretch of the first half in which the Victors showed off the defensive dominance that has carried the Erie school to three straight state championships. Villa Maria ran off 21 straight points to wipe out an early Dunmore lead, then cruised the rest of the way to a 62-39 romp at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center. The run from midway through the first quarter to the halftime buzzer established Villa Maria’s control. The teams played the second half on nearly even terms, but Dunmore never again got

closer than the 16-point deficit it faced at intermission. “We still played hard every possession,” said Karlee McBride, a 5-foot-10 sophomore forward who contributed 12 points, seven rebounds and five steals. It was McBride who started the 21-0 run by powering inside for five straight points to end the

first quarter after Dunmore had taken a 6-2 lead. Dunmore controlled the pace early against a team that averaged 64 points per game, the same number the Lady Bucks put up in their highest scoring output of the season. The Lady Bucks took 1:10 off the clock on a patient first posses-

sion that resulted in Alexa Gerchman’s eight-foot, pull-up jumper for the first score. Ashley Murray’s runner in the lane produced the 6-2 lead with 3:51 left in the first quarter. At that point, Villa Maria was 0for-4, including three missed 3point attempts. “We knew we had to play better defense and that eventually our shots started falling,” said junior point guard Lisa Misfud, who had 16 points. Abbey Steubler wound up leading the Victors with17 points with the help of 4-for-8 shooting from 3-point range, but that part of the Villa Maria game did not arrive until later. The Victors spread the floor with Dunmore chasing and went 4-for-8 on open 3-pointers in the second half after shooting 2-for-12 from long range in the first half. “Lisa Misfud came out in the See PIAA, Page 29

The Dunmore Lady Bucks lost 62-39 against now three-peat PIAA Class AA basketball champions Villa Maria Academy on Friday afternoon. Dunmore has had the last two local appearances in the girls’ state championship games. The Lady Bucks were also defeated in 1994. Riverside captured a Class AA title in 1986, but no other Lackawanna County team has been crowned a girls’ state basketball champion since.

CRANTON – The Dunmore Lady Bucks and Mid Valley Spartanettes jogged to their benches to the sounds of a standing ovation – before the game ever started. A crowd of nearly 4,000 rose as if to thank and salute them just for being there, for guaranteeing the Lackawanna League its first state basketball finalist since 2006, for making the Scranton Catholic Youth Center the place to be again for a big-time Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association game. Now in a brighter and shinier form and

known as the Lackawanna College Student Union, the old CYC once served nearly as big a role in the state playoffs as Pottsville’s Martz Hall and Hazleton Area High School do now. It even was the site of two state championship games in the 1960s, in a time before the girls got to play for such a prize. Tuesday night, with a state championship game berth on the line between two neighboring Lackawanna County schools, it was used for the first time in this year’s district or state playoffs. It was the place to be to see what, by many measures, was the biggest sporting event for female athletes in area history. The game combined the huge crowd with live local television.

The Lady Bucks and Spartanettes put on a game worthy of the setting. They fought through nine lead changes in the second half and were tied seven times, including once while Dunmore was scoring the game’s final six points to emerge with a 51-46 victory that put the Lady Bucks in their second state final. Before it got to that point, Mid Valley showed the form that allowed it to take out district champions in the first three rounds. The Spartanettes punished the Lady Bucks on the boards early, grabbing nine of the game’s first 11 rebounds and never trailing in See SEMIFINAL, Page 29

space to score. The Lady Bucks shot 3-for-15 in the first half when they turned the ball over 10 times and did not score for a span of 11:51. Before Sarah Ross hit a free throw with no time on the clock for Dunmore’s only point of the second quarter, the Victors had built a 23-6 lead. “We had a hard time getting shots, no question,” Dunmore coach Ben O’Brien said. “I don’t think it was anything our play-

the first half. Dunmore responded with the form that it used throughout the eastern half of the state tournament. The Lady Bucks used a second-half rally to win every game. “It was just like every one of the other games,” Dunmore coach Ben O’Brien said after the Lady Bucks beat the otherwise unbeaten Spartanettes for the fifth time this season. “They played a great game and Bob (Doughton) coached a great game. “I thought both teams played great.” Ashley Murray scored 17 of her 25 points in the second half and had five of Dunmore’s six in the game-ending surge. Corinna Palko had the other, hitting the game-winning point by making one of two free throws with 1:32 remaining. “I just tried to keep my head in the game,” Murray said. “It was loud. There were a lot of ers didn’t do.” O’Brien and Murray blamed the offensive struggles on the difficulty the Lady Bucks had just finding enough space to think about taking a shot against Villa Maria. “We may have gotten the ball around and gotten an open shot, but before you knew it, they had a girl on you,” she said. “There was no open minute. “I think we just wanted to get shots up because a girl’s coming at you and your whole shot is thrown off.” ODDS AND ENDS Although Villa Maria did not

force as many turnovers as usual, it made the most of the ones it did get. The Victors turned 19 Dunmore turnovers into 28 points while the Lady Bucks converted nine miscues by Villa Maria into just three points. The large margin in the fourth quarter gave O’Brien a chance to use all 15 players. Ross was the only sub used during the flow of the game. O’Brien turned to Kayla Tobin, who he often credits for her senior leadership along with starters Ashley Murray and Palko, first before going to the rest of the subs.

through the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association basketball tournaments: • Watching Riverside roll through an unbeaten state Class AA championship season in 1986-87, my first full season of covering Lackawanna League basketball, it would have been hard to imagine that it would be the only girls’ state championship for the league in a quartercentury. The all-senior frontcourt of Mary Lisowski, Lisa Sporer and Jennifer Oustrich combined with the sophomore backcourt of Missy Evanish and Shannon Powell to produce a 29-0 record for coach Tom Nageli, just a year after Valley View had played in the Class AAA state final. Dunmore’s two second-place finishes, in Class AA in 1994 and this year, are the only championship game appearances for the league in the last 24 years. • Dunmore did not take the usual route to the state final. Of the 16 boys’ and girls’ teams that arrived at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, the other 15 had averaged a combined victory margin of 75 points for their four state games. Dunmore, which went 10-1 on the season in games decided by six or less and won another game that it broke open for a larger margin in overtime, beat its four state opponents by a total of just 23 points. Of the 48 state finalists the last three seasons, only 2009 Class AA boys’ champion Imhotep Charter has joined the Dunmore girls in arriving without a 10-point win in the tournament. It takes a special group to pull through that many tough games in succession in the postseason. • The best one-game performance goes to Mid Valley in the state quarterfinals. The Spartanettes ended unbeaten York Catholic’s five-year streak of state championship game appearances with a 57-56 victory, led by Danielle Terranella’s second 34-point effort of the tournament. • Dunmore swept all five games against Mid Valley, which was 25-0 against everyone else, and held the Spartanettes to their four lowest-scoring efforts See ROBINSON, Page 33

emotions flowing. “I just tried to keep myself strong and mentally tough.” Murray’s four points in the final minute touched off a celebration that briefly turned scary when Dunmore students stormed the court. Dunmore guard Molly Burke, the smallest player on the floor, was knocked down in the celebration and had to be carried out of the crowd. She finished the night with an ice pack on the resulting bumps and bruises on her knee and most of the Dunmore team spent some time sitting and watching from the bench as the enthusiasm being displayed slowly subsided. Before long, there was another Lady Buck being carried, but this time it was Palko being triumphantly lifted onto the shoulders of classmates to soak in a night that few local athletes ever have or ever will know. “They’re a fantastic team,” Palko said. “It was great to play them here.” The Lady Bucks and Spartanettes did a great job of creating a game so big that no other gym in Lackawanna County could hold it.





Dunmore’s Ashley Murray talks to reporters on Tuesday.

foul line. Ashley Murray could not help but cut loose with some celebration with 13.5 seconds left in Tuesday’s state Class AA semifinal when she hit the first of two free throws to give the Lady Bucks a four-point lead on Mid Valley, practically locking up what became a 51-46 victory. Murray’s emphatic fist pump was a sign of her relief as much as anything. “It’s hard to deal with the fact that you’re missing foul shots,” Murray said. “Your confidence is down. You’re beating yourself up. You have to keep yourself together.” That became a challenge – only at the foul line – when Murray’s missed attempts began late in the second-round win over Carver Engineering & Science and lasted more than three quarters into the Mid Valley semifinal game. Murray had missed 10 of her last 18 when she could not get the first of two to fall with 1:53 left and Dunmore trailing by one. She recovered to hit the second and tie the game. By overcoming her struggles at the line, she put the Lady Bucks on the verge of what became their state championship game appearance. “If I could have, I would have jumped out of my body,” Murray said of the fist pump. “There was no other emotion I could show.” Riverside’s Jerry Kincel was left to wonder if perhaps he had settled in too much when he needed to hit two free throws with the Vikings trying to force overtime, trailing Communications Tech of Philadelphia by two with three-tenths of a second remaining. Kincel hit the first, giving him 17 successes in his last 19 playoff attempts, before a second shot landed short and the Vikings were eliminated with a 49-48 loss. Expect Kincel to spend a lot of his offseason time shooting free throws two at a time after noticing that his second attempts tended not to be as clean as his first shots.

first half and was not knocking down 3-pointers like normal,” Villa Maria interim head coach Doug Chuzie said. “She said, ‘coach, I can get by my girl.’ So, we spread the floor more and went to her.” Once Villa Maria discovered an offensive approach to match the defense that was limiting Dunmore to 32 percent shooting while forcing 19 turnovers, the Victors were too much for the Lady Bucks. “It just became increasingly difficult to get into the paint with dribble penetration and post-entry passes,” Dunmore coach Ben O’Brien said. “At the same time, they made it difficult to complete passes. “If you can make it difficult to complete passes plus you’re taking away dribble penetration, it makes it hard. They did a terrific job.” The win was the 71st straight by the Victors against Class AA opponents. Villa Maria (28-2) closed the season with 15 straight wins. Its only losses came by one point to Class AAA state finalist Mercyhurst Prep and by four points to Class AAAA state quarterfinalist Cardinal O’Hara of Philadelphia. Dunmore (26-6) had a 13-game winning streak while losing for just the second time in 26 games. The Lady Bucks were led by Ashley Murray with10 points. Corinna Palko, who had a team-high six rebounds, and Alexa Gerchman, who led Dunmore with four assists and two steals, each added eight points. Molly Burke hit two 3-pointers while scoring seven.

Sophomore midfielder Dillon McInerney scored three goals to lead Scranton to a 9-6 victory. McInerney scored twice in the first half to help the Royals to a 4-1 lead. Both teams were then off until this weekend, which they started with winning records. Scranton came out of the game with a 4-2 mark while Marywood was 4-3. Junior attacker Daniel Slade and senior attacker Robert Pantages had two goals each against Marywood. Marcus Janda, a junior attacker, led Marywood with two goals and an assist. Both teams have displayed balanced scoring so far this season. Taylor Nelson leads Scranton in assists (five) and points (13). McInerney has a team-high nine goals. Slade, who is second in points with 10, and Pantages join Nelson with eight goals. Mike Rufo has nine points, while Keenan Dowd and J.P. Barton have eight each. The Royals are picked to finish fourth in the six-team Landmark Conference. Goucher, which posted the conference’s first-ever perfect record last season, is the favorite and Catholic is the clear second choice. Merchant Marine Academy, Scranton and Drew were tightly packed in the third through fifth spots. Marywood was picked second

out of seven teams behind unanimous Colonial States Athletic Conference favorite Cabrini because of an experienced lineup, led by first-team, all-star goalie Jessie Habich. Habich led the conference and was third in the nation with a .660 save percentage last season while ranking 12th in goals against average at 6.65. He has put up similar numbers (.626, 6.94) so far this season. Nick Parks leads the Pacers with 12 goals and four assists. William Roerden (11-2-13), George Downey IV (9-3-12), Janda (7-5-12) and Jamie Beagen (4-711) have all scored in double figures for the season.



Scranton dominates area lacrosse match







aitlin Monahan continues to be a key performer for the East Stroudsburg softball team. Monahan (Abington Heights) is a senior pitcher with the Warriors and is currently 5-3 with a 3.19 Monahan earned run average and five complete games. The right-hander recently posted a complete-game 4-0 shutout of Seton Hill. She tossed a two-hitter, walked two and struck out five. She also scored a run and had an RBI. “Cat means so much to our team,” coach Jill Fuduric said. “She is the only senior pitcher on the team and she has set a standard for success.” Monahan was 8-14 with two saves last season as a junior. “Cat worked very hard this off season rehabbing her knee from an injury last year,” Fuderic said. “She always puts in extra time to better herself for the team.” Another thing that Monahan worked on in the off season was developing a drop pitch which is now one of her key pitches. No designated hitter is needed when Monahan is on the mound. She hit .302 (19-for-63) last season with

ON CAMPUS BILL ARSENAULT two home runs and 10 RBI. She’s hitting .316 (six-for-19) thus far this season. BURKE LEARNING THE ROPES Mike Burke has pitched in five games and started three for the Lehigh baseball team. Burke (Abington Heights) is a 6-foot right-hander. He’s worked 13.1 innings and given up 20 hits and 21 runs, 14 earned, with 10 walks and eight strikeouts. His record is 0-3 and his earned run average is 9.45, going against teams like Davidson, Miami (Ohio), Central Michigan and Villanova. “Mike has faced some outstanding competition,” coach Sean Leary said. “But he showed great poise over the fist month and he has already learned a great deal about what it takes to be successful at this level. I am very confident that Mike will continue to improve and that he will be a major contributor to our team’s success this year and beyond.” CAUDILLO PITCHING IN Freshman Katie Caudillo is seeing action with the Bridgeport softball team both as a pitcher and a DP (designated person). Caudillo (Scranton Prep) has pitched in three games and started one. He has a 0-0 record and a 4.38 earned run average. In eight innings, she’s given up eight hits and seven runs, five earned. She’s walked 11 and struck out five. “Katie pitched five innings in See ARSENAULT, Page 33

Like father, like son for Danzig Carl Danzig, head men’s basketball coach at the University of Scranton, landed his first recruit for next season by turning to his own family. Danzig announced Tuesday that his son, Ross, a former Abington Heights standout, will join the Royals after spending this past season playing on the Prep school level at the Blair Academy in New Jersey. Danzig scored 1,013 career points at Abington Heights where he led the Comets to a 29-3 record and state quarterfinal appearance as a senior in 2010. The Comets won three Lackawanna League Division 1 titles and two

District 2 Class AAA championships during his three years as a starter. After averaging 17 points per game as a senior at Abington Heights, Danzig averaged 13 points, five rebounds and four assists to help Blair go 16-7 and win the New Jersey Prep Class A state championship. Carl Danzig is 191-79 in 10 seasons under Danzig with Landmark Conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances in three of the last four years. Spring sports start due The league season arrives in some spring high school sports this week, weather permitting. Lackawanna League boys’ tennis has openers scheduled for Monday. Boys’ and girls’ track and boys’ volleyball are set to begin league play Tuesday. Baseball and softball are not scheduled to open until April 4.

of the season. The exception was Tuesday’s 51-46 state semifinal victory. The last four meetings between the teams were decided by five points or less, including one that went overtime. • The Scranton boys were among the first out, losing to Lower Merion in overtime in the first round of the Class AAAA tournament. It serves as a reminder of just how impressive a run it was for the Knights to make it to the state quarterfinals last season. Without much exposure to top-level Class AAAA games through the years, many local high school basketball fans have trouble understanding just how strong the competition is in the state’s largest classification. Scranton could put together the best boys’ basketball team this area has ever seen next season. The Knights would still have to expect to be strongly tested from the start of the state tournament and to become an underdog in the later rounds.

Pens clinch AHL playoff berth The Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins reach a new milestone with each game of what is becoming the team’s finest regular season ever. The Penguins have won five straight to improve to 51-18-0-1. Tim Wallace scored the game’s final two goals March 19 for a 5-3 victory over Worcester before a sellout crowd at the Mohegan Sun Arena to make the Penguins the first team this season to clinch an American Hockey League playoff berth. One night later, the Penguins became the first 50-win and first 100-point team in the AHL this season with Sunday’s 2-1 victory over the Charlotte Checkers. Brad Thiessen made 25 saves and came within five seconds of his league-leading eighth

shutout of the season. Wednesday’s 2-1 shootout win over the Albany Devils was the team’s 51st of the season, matching the franchise record set in the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons.

ROSSI WORKING HARD Senior Drew Rossi (Valley View) is playing second base for the Mitchell College baseball team. He’s a transfer from Keystone College. “Drew has worked hard since leaving Keystone last season, and we have been working on him being more consistent defensively and staying within

BRADY SEEING ACTION Freshman Kayla Brady (Abington Heights) has played in 15 games for the Chowan softball team, mostly as a pinch hitter and pinch runner. She’s hitting .333 (one-for-three) and has scored five runs for the Braves, who are 18-12 in the early part of the season. “Kayla has been a great addition to our talented team of student-athletes,” coach Amanda Balduf said. “She’s seen limited action but continues to improve her skills.” Brady is already a success in the class room. “Kayla posted a 4.0 grade point average the first semester,” Balduf said.



ROSENCRANCE FITTING IN Joel Rosencrance (Holy Cross) is a member of the East Stroudsburg baseball team, which was 16-4 after 20 games and ranked first in the Atlantic Region by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Rosencrance, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound freshman, has pitched in four games. He has a 2.89 earned run average. In 9.1 innings, he’s given up 13 hits and three runs, all earned. He has walked three and struck out five. “Joel is doing extremely well despite being just a freshman on a talented pitching staff,” assistant coach Kevin Woodbridge said. “He is going to get

SIMONIK LEADS THE WAY Senior Drew Simonik (Lakeland) is having another standout season pitching for the Lock Haven baseball team. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-hander is currently 2-2 with a 2.40 earned run average. He’s pitched 23.1 innings and given up 26 hits and 17 runs, only eight earned. He’s walked nine and struck out 22. Simonik has already tossed a complete game 6-3 victory over Lake Erie. He gave up six hits and two earned runs, walking one and striking out seven. Prior to that, he didn’t allow a hit in six innings of work and got credit for a 6-0 triumph against Urbana College. He had four strikeouts in that game. “Drew has been a very consistent starter for our program,” veteran coach Smokey Stover said. “He is capable of shutting down any team in the country. It has been a pleasure to work with him the past four

MOVE DOESN’T SLOW MARIANELLI Sophomore Allyson Marianelli (Old Forge) is hitting .357 (10-for-28) in the early going for the Lycoming softball team. She has a double, seven RBI and has scored five runs. She hit .299 (26-for-87) last season. “Allyson’s role this year is to be the leader in the outfield moving from left field to center field,” coach Dan Lazorka said. “She has shown a great improvement at the plate and the experience she got in the college game as a freshman has really helped her understand what it takes to play at this level.”

He just needs to stick with what he is good at and stay away from doing too much and trying to be a player he is not.” Rossi is hitting .360 (ninefor-25) in eight starts for the 6-2 Mariners. He has three doubles, six runs scored and six RBI. In the field, he’s made just one error on 21 chances (.952).
