Mary Ellen and Jerry Hromi-
sin soon realized their greatest
fear – that their son would die –
would not be their only fear.
Almost as terrifying was the
fear that should he live, he
would never again be their son
… not at all as they knew him
and possibly not even close.
Doctors made it painfully
clear that patients suffering
from traumatic brain injury
(TBI), if they survive, are often
not the same person. Worse,
they can become mean-spirited,
foul-mouthed and belligerent.
It’s a direct result of the part of
the brain that is damaged or
missing. It’s certainly not their
fault, but it is a horrible experi-
ence for their loved ones.
“This is what made Patrick
(TJ’s older brother) break down
and cry,” said Mary Ellen Hro-
misin Wednesday afternoon as
she, her husband, and, yes, TJ
talked candidly about TJ’s or-
deal, now four years old, with
some members of the Sunday
Dispatch staff in the kitchen of
their Pittston home.
As it turns out, Patrick never
had to deal with it. None of the
Hromisins have. It’s been a long
road and hard work, but four
years after a sniper’s bullet in
Iraq tore out a third of his skull
and a portion of his brain and
left him blind for the remainder
of his life, TJ is still TJ.
What struck me most as we
said our good-byes after more
than two hours was how much
everyone in that kitchen
laughed during our visit, none
of us more than TJ. He showed
that he could take it, allowing
his mom and dad to tease him
about the size of his head which
had brain surgeons astonished
when they unwrapped an artifi-
cial skull made specifically for
him, saying they had never
before seen one so large; and
that he could dish it out, re-
ferring to his dad pushing him
to exercise his brain with the
comment, “It’s tough having a
teacher for a parent.”
For the first 24 years of his
life, TJ, written without periods
and short for Thomas Jerome,
was about as perfect as a son
could be: honor student, athlete,
good Catholic faith, college
ROTC grad, Army officer.
Then, two years to the day of
his college graduation, he took
a bullet to the head and that
changed everything. But, when
all is said and done, it hasn’t
changed him.
Once a cross country stand-
out, he can no longer run, but
he walks with his dad almost
every day. Once an honor stu-
dent, he can no longer read, but
he consumes audio books. And
on it goes.
Perhaps most striking is TJ’s
faith in God – “it’s strength-
ened,” he says. “Yes, there was
a time when all I said was
‘Why, God?’ now I just thank
Him for keeping me alive.”
Along with God, TJ thanks
his parents. “They’ve done
more than anyone could ask for
without ever being asked,” he
said. “They always knew what
to do and when to do it, and
they are still that way. Their
service, their sacrifices, all the
good things. I really feel loved.”
Unfortunately, not all who
return from battle with traumat-
ic brain injuries – and there are
some 320,000 of them from
Iraq and Afghanistan – return
to parents such as Mary Ellen
and Jerry Hromisin. Some have
no homes at all.
That prompted Kristin Perilli,
an occupational therapist of the
U.S. Navy, and her husband,
William Perilli, a CPA, to create
a fund to provide a home for
troops with TBI who need
permanent living arrangements
following rehabilitation. Kris-
tin, who was friends with TJ
when both were students at the
University of Scranton, was
reunited with him when he
became her patient at the US
Navy Hospital in Bethesda.
Kristin named the project the
Thomas Jerome House. Ground
for the first one will be broken
shortly at Hamilton Square,
New Jersey, and TJ will be
there for the ceremony.
Funds for the project are
desperately needed. A cam-
paign in TJ’s name called “One
Million/One Dollar” has been
launched hoping to get one
million people to donate one
dollar each. All the details can
be found at thomasjeromehou-
se.org or at onemilliononedol-
lar.com. I’m praying for an
overwhelming response from
the people of Greater Pittston.
Men like TJ are heroes, who
essentially sacrificed the life
they knew for America.
That’s from the thomasjero-
mehouse.org website.
The most difficult thing after
my brain injury was going from
the person who helped every-
one with whatever they needed,
to the person that needs help
with almost everything in life. I
want to have the opportunity to
participate in the community
the way I did before my injury. I
support the Thomas Jerome
House and its efforts to bring
normalcy and purpose to every
Marine, Sailor, Airman and
Soldier that passes through its
doors.
That’s from TJ.

our years ago on May 29,
2007, retired United
States Army Captain Tho-
mas Jerome “TJ” Hromisin, then
a 1st Lieutenant, was critically
wounded by a sniper bullet dur-
ing Operation Iraqi Freedom
while leading a combat patrol. A
third of his skull and part of his
brain were destroyed and he was
blinded.
Later that summer Tee It Up
for TJ, a golf benefit at Edge-
wood in the Pines Golf Course in
Drums, was organized by his
cousin Ron Hromisin. That
Thanksgiving more that 600
friends and family wore purple
ribbons to honor Hromisin at a
Mass at St. John the Evangelist
Church.
In 2008, Hromisin was the
honorary starter of the Pittston
Tomato Festival 5-k race. In
2009 he was the Greater Pittston
Friendly Sons of St. Patrick’s
Man of the Year.
TJ, his father Jerry Hromisin
said Wednesday, never under-
stood what the fuss over himwas
all about and he was happy to
keep a lowprofile these past two
years.
This week with the 4th of July
and its link to independence as a
motivator, TJ agreed to an inter-
view.
Sitting at the kitchen table at
his parents’ home in Pittston on
Wednesday afternoon, he –
along with his father and his
mother Mary Ellen – talked
about his recovery.
It has been to use his father’s
word “amazing.”
In the immediate aftermath of
his injury doctors held out little
hope that TJ would ever be able
to do the things he does today.
“I’mable to move around free-
ly without help,” he said. “I think
clearer. I put dates and times in
their proper situations.”
TJ is on his way

Captain (Ret.) TJ Hromisin, 28, talks about his long road to recovery at his home in Pittston some
four years after being critically wounded in Iraq.
TJ Hromisin as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army in Iraq. An
ROTC graduate of the University of Scranton, he was in Iraq only
seven weeks when a rifle shot to the head left him critically
wounded. The ambush occurred exactly two years after his col-
lege graduation.

Officials of Pittston City and
West Pittston Borough invite ev-
eryone to the annual Fireworks
over the Susquehanna River to-
night at dusk.
The Firefighters Memorial
Bridge (Water Street Bridge)
will be closed to vehicular traffic
to provide an ideal viewing
place. Other viewing locations
are along the East and West sides
of the river in Pittston and West
Pittston and also from the side-
walk of the fort Jenkins Bridge.
Mayor Jason Klush, Pittston,
Mayor Tony Denisco, West Pitt-
ston, and former West Pittston
mayor Bill Goldsworthy again
called for donations to defray the
cost of the display. The fireworks
are funded through the Pittston-
West Pittston Community fund.
“We truly feel this fireworks
display will help continue the
harmonious relationship be-
tween the people, businesses and
government officials of both
communities. More importantly,
it will provide a fun event for all
the people of the Greater Pittston
area, and it will help foster pride
in the great events surrounding
the founding of our great nation,
especiallyfor the youth of our ar-
ea,” the mayors wrote in a letter
to area businesses and individu-
als seeking funds.
Donations can be sent to the
Pittston-West Pittston Commu-
nity Fund c/o Pittston City

Now that the approach spans
on the Wyoming side of the old
Eighth Street Bridge are gone,
the obvious question is how will
the looming steel truss spans of
the old bridge be taken down?
While it seems logical that be-
cause the truss spans are so close
to the new bridge that blasting
them down would not be an op-
tion, blasting is in fact the plan.
But by law the truss spans
can’t be dropped into the river, so
the next phase of the project was
to reposition the causeway.
The causeway is the raised dirt
and stone road that was built on
the river for the construction of
the new bridge.
The causewayhas beenreposi-
tioned under the old trusses, but
as of Saturday it was still under
water.
Bill Bohn, a consulting engi-
neer on the job, said the plan is to
raise the causeway above the riv-
er with stone on Tuesday and
blast on Wednesday.
While Wednesday is a target
date, it is tentative depending on
the weather and the river level.
An offical annoucnment from
PennDot will likely come Tues-
day.
The blasting Wednesday, if it
happens, will bring down the
trusses, not the piers. The piers,
which are two feet into the river

“When I got home Thursday,
the keys were in my mailbox,”
saidMarcella Starr, the president
of the Wyoming Monument As-
sociation. The keys were for the
doors to the monument and the
fact that theywere inher mailbox
meant Masonry Preservation
Services of Berwick had fin-
ished repairs and restoration of
the monument in time for its re-
dedication tomorrow during the
133rd Annual Observance of the
Battle and Massacre at Wyom-
ing beginning at 10 a.m.
When lightning struck the
Wyoming Monument on August
3, 2008, it opened a crack down
the back of the 63-foot structure,
moved the top two rows of stones
at least two inches, damaged the
joints on the monument’s cap,
blew out a small chunk of con-
crete andcrackedandpushedout
a Vermont granite plaque listing
the names of the battle survivors.
A fund to solicit donations for
repair and restoration of the
monument was established, but
at the time the $110,000 estimat-
ed cost of repairs seemed out of
reach. Thenlast July, Drs. Joseph
and Rose Mattioli donated
$130,000 to the project.
Masonry Preservation Servic-
es was contracted to do the work
andknocked$10,000off the esti-
mate. As the monument is a Na-
tional Historic site the repairs
had to conformto the integrity of
Wyoming Monument rededication ceremony tomorrow

aving been selected to
the U.S. Paralympic Ski
Team in May, Stephanie
Jallen, 15, is in Mt. Hood, Ore-
gon, training with the team. But
she is cominghome this weekfor
the Fifth Annual Stephanie Jal-
len Paralympic Motorcycle Run/
Picnic next Sunday.
Stephanie, a Wyoming Area
honor student fromHarding, has
been skiing since she was nine.
As a member of the U.S. Ski
Team, Jallen advances to the
next level in training and compe-
titions.
Her goal has always been to
qualify for the 2014 Paralympics
in Russia. Making the U.S. team
is a big step toward that goal, but
she still has work to do.
She can now train with the U.
S. team and compete in events
such as the World Cup, Europe-
an Cup and Nor-AmCup (North
America.)
Through these competitions
the skiers earn points to qualify
for the Paralympics. Stephanie
competes in Alpine ski racing in
the slalom, giant slalom, down-
hill and super-G(super giant sla-
lom.)
After the motorcycle ride, Ste-
phanie will go back to Mt. Hood.
In August she goes to NewZeal-
and for more training.
Stephanie has CHILD (Con-
genital Hemidysplasia with Ich-
thyosiformerythroderma and
Limb Defects) Syndrome, a con-
genital birth defect that caused
her to be born with one arm and
one leg.
While the U.S. Olympics pays
for team members’ travel, the
Paralympics does not, so events
like next week’s motorcycle ride
are crucial for Stephanie to bne
able to continue with her train-
ing.
Registration for the Fifth An-
nual Stephanie Jallen Paralym-
pic Motorcycle Run/Picinic be-
gins at 9:30 a. m. next Sunday at
Diamond Mfg. Parking Lot, 243
W. 8th St., West Wyoming.
Registration is $15 per rider
and $10 per passenger and that
includes a meal tickets. Rider
will leave West Wyoming at
noon for the Holy Child Fair-
grounds on Newport St. in the
Sheatown Section of Nanticoke.
At the fairgrounds non-rider
admission is $5 and children un-
der 12 are free. It’s an all-day
event rain or shine with food,
beverages and games and live
music by Cool Ride and Hidden
Drive. For more information got
to www.stephaniejallen.org or
call Bob Wineman at (570) 510-
5336.

herbs and flowers that are in sea-
son. Other vendors returning to

chard, Dymond’s Farm, and Paul
Pauliny. Newtothe market is Ed-
ward Transue from the Dallas
Area.
Vouchers from the PA Depart-
ment of Agriculture will be ac-
cepted at the market by the ven-
dors. Parking is available on the
lot and on the St. John the Evan-
gelist parking lot on William
Street facing the church and Ga-
briel House.
New vendors are welcome.

dents upon the exclusive recom-
mendation of teachers, coaches,

cademy. The Standards for Se-
lection include academic per-
formance, interest and aptitude,
leadership qualities, responsibil-
ity, enthusiasm, motivation to
learn and improve, attitude and
cooperative spirit, dependability,

Tomorrow is Independence Day with
an upper case “I” and “D.” It’s a patriotic
day on which we celebrate our country’s
independence from Great Britain.
But tomorrowis a gooddaytoreflect on
the many examples of lower case inde-
pendence which affect our lives. The
process of growing from a child to an
adult is a series of gains of independence.
A toddler learning to walk and talk is
gaining independence. Achild learning to
ride a bike and an older child learning to
drive are gaining even greater independ-
ence.
Whena youngadults turns18a worldof
independence is thrust upon him or her.
At 18 young adults can legally do, inde-
pendent of their parents, lots of things that
they couldn’t do the day before. At 18 they
can, on their own, vote, apply for a credit
card, get married, join the military, start a
business, get a mortgage or auto loan, en-
ter into contracts, etc.
At 21 they can drink alcohol without
breaking the law, a form of independence
frought with many possible negative ram-
ifications for themselves and society if
they celebrate that independence too free-
ly.
Independence can also be lost and then
found again. Marriage restricts independ-
ence, divorce may restore it. Becoming a
parent restricts independence, raising that
child to adulthood may restore it. Drug
abuse takes away independence. Getting
clean can restore it.
A person on welfare wins independ-
ence by finding a job. An illiterate adult
can become independent by learning to
read.
There are different types of independ-
ence. Being handy is a form of independ-
ence. Being happy, that is not expecting
someone else to make one happy, is a
form of independence.
Sometimes giving up independence
can be a good thing. We give up some in-
dependence when we join a team, when
we play in a band or sing in chorus. We
give up some independence when we
adopt a pet and when we fall in love.
Independence can be different things to
different people. For the sickor injuredin-
dependence comes from healing. For a
good example turn to pages two and three
and learn what independence means to TJ
Hromisin.
Like him, cherish the independence
you have and strive for the independence
you want.
Remember not everyone can be inde-
pendent. Let’s use our independence to
help those who, through no fault of their
own, are dependent on others.

Jack Smiles’ “Random Notes,” about all-day kindergarten on
June 26 made me chuckle. My Mom, Lottie Innamorati, was
basicallya nononsense, take noprisoners, type of Mom. She had
no patience with anyone who didn’t understand her agenda.
Times were tough right after the depression, Momdidn’t drive
and she had a tousled hair little two-year-old son, besides me, her
five-year-old daughter.
Mommy decided she wanted me enrolled in kindergarten. It
wasn’t like she could look on the internet for the schedule and we
didn’t even have a telephone. When we got to the school, she was
told that the enrollment was filled.
Now, this was pretty much back in the days of “Little House on
the Prairie”. Mom didn’t like the school’s response so she did
what wouldn’t be tolerated today; she fibbed and enrolled me in
the first grade of the local Catholic School. Instead of being five
years old, I was now six. Wasn’t much checking back then.
Well, lo and behold, I thrived.
Of course, five year olds had a heavy dose of reading, by then,
back in the good old days; being there was no TV. There was no
“Dancing with the Stars” or reality shows to miss, so my parents,
poor as they were, always had time to read me a story before
bed-time.
Plus I became the only Italian kid in my family to speak the
Slovakian language!
When I graduated fromhigh school, I had just passed frommy
16th to my17th year, which helps to explain why I got married so
young.
Oh well, there’s a down side to everything, isn’t there?

“I’ve got a brand new pair of roller
skates…you’ve got a brand new key…”
If you’re old enough to remember that song,
you’re old enough to remember the skates. Hold
that thought.
I’m 48 years old. And, a 48 year-old woman ap-
parently has to stay active in order to avoid looking
like a Russian nesting doll.
It’s a sad fact.
I can no longer eat an entire pallet of sticky buns
and not expect it to relocate to my bulbous belly,
which resembles a plumleft in the cold recesses of
the refrigerator too long.
My metabolism is as slow as molasses in Janu-
ary and my estrogen supply follows lazily behind.
So, I’ve valiantly tried to get my slug-like self up
and rotating. Walking is okay, but it’s not very titil-
lating. Unless I catch something enthralling
through someone’s window. (Oh, and I have).
I’ve tried walk/jogging, “wogging”, but I fell
down, and that was that. I bike ride and I do enjoy
it…even with my husband yelling after me: “You
GO, Wicked Witch of the West! Where’s Toto?
WHERE’S TOTO?”
I throw him a gesture that is so very familiar to
him and off I peddle.
But still, I required more. I needed to get into
better shape before my next call was to1-800-paja-
ma-jeans.
I thought back to a time when excessive motion
was actually fun and I remembered the one activity
that I’ve always loved: roller skating!
When we were kids, during medieval times, re-
member we all skated with those archaic metal ap-
paratuses that clung onto our shoes and could only
be tailored using a special skate key? We had to
wear the key on a shoelace around our neck, be-
cause: one, it was cool, and two, once you lost your
key, you were effectively screwed. There was no
other way to manipulate those skates, I will tell you
that. I knowbecause my sister always stole my key
and I was …well, effectively screwed.
When my husband and I lived in California, BC
(Before Children), he would spend countless emp-
ty hours golfing (surprise) and I would spend those
same hours roller skating around the golf course. I
had graduated to cool, white, lace-up skates then
and I tell you, I flew. Flew! Now, this was the ‘80s
so suffice it to say those skates were paired with
enormous shoulder pads, legwarmers and enough
blue mascara to sink a Carnival cruise ship.
But honestly, I was never in better shape; al-
though that was partially because three children
hadn’t yet laid claim to my worn-out uterus and
other instrumental parts, leaving my belly in the
crepe-paper shape it’s currently enjoying…but
still…
So, instead of traveling to a Planet called Fitness,
I ordered a pair of roller skates. They weren’t like
the skates from my Flashdance days, but pretty
damn close. Finally, they arrived at my door…a-
long with mail including an announcement of my
upcoming 30-year high school reunion and invita-
tions to become a member of both the NRA and
AARP.
That’s it, I decided, these skates were going to
save my life, my figure and the scant slice of what’s
left of my addled brain.
I yanked open that box and there they were …
pristine, white, hopeful and a potential hoot. The
purple wheels were a tad Barney-esque, but what
the hell…they turned.
Because I didn’t want to delay my newfound en-
thusiasm for all things get-up-and-go one moment
further, l laced them up, hobbled to a precarious
vertical position, and feeling like Olivia Newton
John in Xanadu, skated smoothly through my
house.
All three kids were onthe couchandstared. They
did not blink. They did not breathe. They stared.
Then, of course, they began the expected response
of snorting, chortling and pointing.
Me: “I don’t care what you all say. I love these!”
Nick: “Ohhh. Well. They sure are…um…fancy.
Do they say…” he squinted, “…Roller Derby Star
on the side, Mom? ROLLER DERBY STAR???”
Me: “This is outstanding exercise! Don’t judge
me! But maybe long pants instead of my baggy
shorts would make me look a little less silly…”
Madeline: “You’re an old lady on white roller
skates with purple wheels! Nothing is going to
make you look less silly!”
Undeterred, I practiced up and down the street.
With each swipe down the blacktop I felt lighter
and more exuberant. My husband drove by and
helpfully pointed out that 1985 called and they
wanted their skates back. I told him he could take
them back with him when he returned his acid-
washed Wrangler jeans and powder blue Members
Only jacket. Two can play this game, dammit.
I skate every night and I love it.
I realize I’m straddling a world between delight
and ridiculous, yet I skate and I skate and I don’t
worry about looking like an ass.
If I worried about looking like an ass, I would
have never played Twister, or had a mullet or re-
peatedly and without provocation stuck a spoon to
my nose or worn a bikini.
You can’t not do something that makes your
heart sing just because people nudge and point and
giggle.
And believe me, they do.
I think they’re jealous, actually. I think they want
to also have a brand new pair of roller skates.
Because, I have a brand newpair of roller skates
and I also hold the proverbial brand new key. The
key to fun and toned glutes and revisited adoles-
cence.
I holdthe keytoglee. Whoknewall it wouldtake
was a pair of Roller Derby Stars?

patch readers every other week in this space.
There are numerous ways to cook burgers, chicken and ribs on the
grill. Many of us have our grilling secrets when grilling outdoors.
USDAhas some too, that is veryspecific recommendations for cook-
ing meats to ensure that you and your guests are safe fromfood borne
illness.
One fact sheet written by USDA, entitled “Barbeque and Food
Safety” identifies the ten top mistakes made by those who grill foods
outdoors. Here are three of those frequently made mistakes.”
First, when reheating fully cooked meats like hot dogs, grill to
165°F or until steaming hot. It is not recommended to just warm the
hot dogs, but rather use a food thermometer to ensure that they reach
165°F.
Second after cooking meat and poultry on the grill, keep it hot until
served — at 140 °F or warmer. It is not recommended to just place
grilled food on the serving table and leave food out for longer than
two hours. Remember, in hot weather (above 90 °F), food should
never sit out for more than 1 hour.
Keep cooked meats hot by setting themto the side of the grill rack,
not directly over the coals where they could overcook. At home, the
cookedmeat canbe kept hot inanovenset at approximately200°F, in
a chafing dish or slow cooker, or on a warming tray.
Third frequently made mistake, when taking food off the grill, use
a clean platter. Don’t put cooked food on the same platter that held
raw meat or poultry. Any harmful bacteria present in the raw meat
juices could contaminate safely cooked food. Using a cooking ther-
mometer is a must when ever cooking meats.
In a previous nutrition corner column, “To Wash or Not to Wash”, I
mistakenly quoted that the final cooking temperature for ground beef
was 155°F, however more correctly stated the final cooking temper-
ature for restaurants or retailers as noted in the FDA food code is
155°F with a rest time of 15 seconds, but not for home cooking or
consumers. The correct temperature for cooking ground meat prod-
ucts at home as recommended by USDAis160°F, five degrees higher
and no rest time. Rest time is the amount of time that the finished
cooked product rests before eating. During rest periods, internal tem-
peratures of meat can either stay the same or increase.
Along with ground beef, all grounds meats, pork, turkey and beef
need to be cook to an internal temperature of 160°F for consumers.
The new final cooking temperature that was just released by USDA
for whole cuts of pork is 145°F and with an added a three-minute rest
time. The safe temperature for cuts of beef, veal, and lamb remains
unchanged at 145 °F, but the department is adding a three-minute rest
time as part of its cooking recommendations. Cooking raw pork,
steaks, roasts, and chops to145 °Fwith the addition of a three-minute
rest time will result in a product that is both microbiologically safe
and at its best quality. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service
(FSIS) has determined that it is just as safe to cook cuts of pork to145
°F with a three minute rest time as it is to cook them to 160 °F, the
previously recommended temperature, with no rest time.
Every kitchen needs a calibrated cooking thermometer. As you can
see, if FDAand USDAare making recommendations within specific
degrees, then using your eye as a determinant of doneness is not safe.
Be safe, use a calibrated chef’s thermometer.

youtube videos. These are part of the government coalition for food

He recalls when he couldn’t say a sen-
tence like that one. “I was always able to
talk making words,” he said, “but not
making any sense with them.”
Today TJ, although he speaks deliber-
ately, makes a lot of sense and is inde-
pendent enough to make his own break-
fast and wash a load of clothes.
He goes to cognitive therapy sessions
with Dr. Kristin Bewick where he is en-
couraged to write. “I’m putting together
essays, mainly about people from my
past, to combine thinking skills and writ-
ing skills and have the ability to write a
decent essay on any kind of subject,” he
said.
He also gets mobility training fromSu-
san Friedman who takes him around the
University of Scranton campus where he
spent four years as an ROTC scholarship
student and where he hopes to enroll in
classes. His more immediate goal, he said,
is to “get around that campus with as little
help as possible.”
To help his mobility he walks several
miles a day with his father, uses a tread-
mill and does a little weight training. He
said he always liked to run and had been a
member if the cross country teamat Seton
Catholic High School.
Eventually TJ, who was promoted to
Captain in the U.S. Army but is now offi-
cially retired from that position, would
like to work. “I’d like to get a job I want to
do,” he said, “instead of settling for a job.”
Even at that, TJ and his parents don’t
dwell on the future. “To use a cliché, one
day at a time,” Jerry said. “Everybody
says it, but we do it. We get through today
and get up tomorrowand see what’s next.”
One of the ways they get through today
is with humor. TJ is fair game for jokes
about the size of his head – it’s big, as x-
rays of his skull provided by his orthodon-
tist to the surgeons who repaired his skull
revealed. His mother said when the sur-
geons saw the size of the plastic polymer
skull that was specially built to replace
TJ’s destroyed skull, it was so big they
thought a mistake had been made.
Another way the Hromisins do “one
dayat a time” is toenjoylife’s simple plea-
sures. TJ likes to eat, “watch” TV, listen to
baseball games on the radio, listen to au-
dio books and to music on his iPod which
he said “has everything from rock, to rap
to country.”
It all sounds normal and that, T.J said, is
what keeps him motivated. “I want a
chance at normalcy,” he said.

Question #1
There was a mob-
like atmosphere on
North Main Street in
Pittston on July 2,
1947. What was go-
ing on?
1947 – 64 Years Ago
Upon the 50th reunion of the Twin
Shaft Disaster of June 28, 1896, a July,
1947, issue of the Sunday Dispatch con-
tained the names of miners killed in the
accident that shook the town like an
earthquake. Fifty-eight men and boys
were killed when the roof of the tunnel
gave way trapping the miners. Rescue
attempts were futile, therefore the min-
ers are still entombed on the site. A
marker signifies the event and location.
To read all the names and the account of
the mine accident go to www.gendisas-
ters.com/data1/pa/mines/pittston-mine-
cavein1896.htm.
Professor Peter Pace of the Oregon
section of Pittston set about arranging
the revival of the Greater Pittston Con-
cert Band in order to present public
performances. Mr. Pace hoped to find
past members and gain new. The Amer-
ican Federation of Musicians supported
free public concerts and the Holy Name
Society of St. Rocco’s Church hoped to
sponsor some events.
The Yearling, staring Gregory Peck
and Jane Wyman, was screened at the
American Theatre. The Farmer’s
Daughter, with Loretta Young and
Joseph Cotton, was showing at the
Liberty in Exeter and Palace in Avoca.
1957 – 54 Years Ago
Exeter resident Vince Yanovitch was
the golf pro for Whiteface Inn Golf Club
at Lake Placid. Named a rising star in
the sport, Yanovitch had formerly been
at Shawnee Country Club owned by
Fred Waring, a renowned choral direc-
tor and bandleader in the 1940s and
‘50s. Waring broadcasted his famous
radio show from that location hosting
many of the top celebrities of the time.
After taking the job as pro at Whiteface,
Yanovitch tied the course record. He has
been a member of PGA Professionals
for over 50 years and is the PGA Direc-
tor of Golf at Great Bear Golf and
Country Club in East Stroudsburg. You
can also get his golf tips online.
It was a big game but all in fun when
Detato’s Market challenged the Um-
pires Association to a softball exhibi-
tion. The umps took some good-natured
ribbing, and fans were treated to an
entertaining game. Members of the
teams were Nick Daley, Val Daley, Bob
Linskey, Tony Rincavage, Billy Brill,
Jim O’Malley, Joe Cadden, Jack
Hoover, Al Amer, Larry Delaney, Dan
Forlenza, Tony DeGerolomo, Eddie
Leyshon, Joe DeLucca, Paul Pascoe,
Jack Thomas, Len Wendoloski, Tony
Rossi, Gene Allegrucci and Bob Deta-
to. Detato’s won.
Billy Dructor, of Pittston and a local
American Legion boxing champion,
joined the Air Force and was stationed
at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington
D.C. but he did not forget his compet-
itive nature. While at the base, he was
selected to coach Air Force track and
field team taking the Northeast cham-
pionship. Dructor participated in the
event taking second in the 440-yard
hurdles, and was on the winning 440-
yard relay team. He was selected to
coach the Air Force World Wide Track
and Field Tournament held in Texas.
Paddy Fadgen was known as “king of
the woods” and lived in the “last house
on the right in Paddy’s land just at the
foot of mile hill,” according to a Sunday
Dispatch reader. The writer further com-
mented that “Paddy would turn over in
his grave” if he knew what was happen-
ing at Langan’s Settlement in Pittston
Township. A police raid uncovered that
“upstart teenagers” were using the patch
of land once owned by the Irishman for
late night beer parties. The writer ap-
pealed to local politicians for help in
returning the patch of land to a peaceful
area.
In the Subscriber’s Corner of the Dis-
patch a young person commenting on
the police raid stating, “If there was a
party near Langan’s would there be a
corpse house out there? It’s so far out in
the woods you need a guide to get there
and a horse to get back. We’re not both-
ering anybody. What do you want us to
do, drop dead?”
Marion Salvo of Pittston, Miss
Wyoming Valley of 1957, was to make a
guest appearance at a record hop at Holy
Rosary Church in Duryea. Marion com-
peted with 22 other contestants in the
Miss Pennsylvania Pageant at Long-
wood Gardens, West Chester, and placed
sixth.

brated its 98th year. With combined total
assets of over $19 million, the bank had

Mrs. Coray H. Miller of Wyoming
and President of the Wyoming Monu-
ment Association gave a detailed history
of the monument on the 189th anni-
versary of the battle of Wyoming.
“The battle occurred on July 3, 1778
but the bodies of dead were laid to rest
in a field owned by John McDowell
some months later. Phillip Jackson lo-
cated the grave in 1832 shortly afterward
a group of citizens met to plan a monu-
ment. In the spring of 1833, the bones of
83 solders were disinterred and placed
in three large boxes kept in the Swetland
Store located nearby. The corner stone
of the monument was laid on July 3,
1883. The first officers of association
were Mrs. Chester Butler, Mrs. G.M.
Hollenback and Mrs. E. Carey.”
To find out more about one of the
“unknown” officers in the battle read “A
Forgotten Hero” of the Massacre at
Wyoming, Major John Garret, written
by Rev. Horace Edwin Hayden. Excerpts
from the book located at the Library of
Congress can be found at http://www.ar-
chive.org/stream/majorjohngar-
rett00hayd#page/n3/mode/2up.
Four young men out for a day of sum-
mer adventure wound up being rescued
by approximately 50 volunteer fire-
fighters and rescue workers. The youths
attempted to climb area landmark
Campbell’s Ledge only to find three
quarters of the way and 200 feet above
the base, they became stranded. Rescue
teams from Germania and Excelsior
Hose Companies joined forces to bring
the boys to safety. Earlier in the day,
Walter Bechtold of Coxton observed
the youngster’s plight and notified Pa-
trolman James Steer. Steer notified the
firefighters. Two brothers of Excelsior,
Dave and Charles Wickizer, climbed
the cliff and lowered three of the boys to
the ground, the fourth made his way
down without aid.
1977 – 34 Years Ago

Question #2
Greater Pittston laid claim to having
two of the rarest of these in the world.
What were they?
1997 – 14 Years Ago
The following memorial books were
donated to the West Pittston Library in
1997: In memory of Sidney Bugelholl,
Chronicles of the Great War, The West-
ern Front 1914-1918 presented by John
and Beverly Williams. In memory of
Carlo J. Saporito: Stephen Spielberg: a
Biography, presented by Attorney and
Mrs. Michael J. Cefalo. In honor of
John Markarian: John Muir; Nature
Writings, presented by Helen B. Platten
and Minnie B. MacLellan.
Answer #1
Nathan’s, a dress shop on North Main
Street, held a large clearance sale with
the “best prices in town.” Noticing the
huge response to the sale, other busi-
nesses joined in by quickly posting sale
notices in their windows. Police were
dispatched to the area as some women
stormed the shops causing injury.
Answer #2
Mrs. and Mrs. Ed Rees of Exeter
and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Cefalo
along with their children Michele and
Mark of West Wyoming each owned a
rare breed of dog. The Rees’s Egyptian
Pharaoh Hounds, capable of running at
speeds of 52 miles per hour are excel-
lent hunters and were once thought to be
extinct. The Cefalo’s Chinese Shar-Pei
was listed in the 1976 edition of the
Guinness Book of World Records as
“one of the rarest dogs in the world,”
with a history dating back as early as
206 B.C. Read more and see photos of
these two extraordinary breeds of dog at

We on this continent should never
forget that men first crossed the Atlantic
not to find soil for their ploughs but to
secure liberty for their souls.

WEST SCRANTON - ATTENTION INVESTORS!!
Red, white and blue flags and
buntings are flying proudly
throughout our area and towns
across America in honor of the
forthcoming “Independence
Day” markingthis nation’s 235th
birthday. The flags when caught
by the wind unfurl majestically
affirming the feelings of pride
and honor we have in our great
country. We are reminded of the
sacrifices made fromthe birth of
this nation to the present.
Celebrating and marking this
historical “Independence Day”
is a tradition dating back to 1776
when the Second Continental
Congress presented a second
draft of the list of grievances
known as the Declaration of In-
dependence to King George of
England.
Bravely the signatures of 56
men were penned on the docu-
ment. They pledged their lives,
fortunes and sacred honor.
Twentyfour were lawyers andju-
rists, eleven were merchants;
nine were farmers and plantation
owners; others were men of
means and well educated. As
each man signed his name it was
with the realization of the danger
of being called treasonous
against Mother Country En-
gland and the crown. With cour-
age, conviction and determina-
tion they signed to establish a
country free from English dom-
ination with full knowledge they
may be executed.
John Hancock, president of
the Congress, was the first to
sign the document. He signed
most flamboyantly. His signa-
ture was easily recognized and
unfounded comments of his ac-
half. Half Italian and half Amer-
ican. Hamburgers that were pre-
pared with a meatball recipe and
shaped into round patties were
served on Ristagno’s Bakery
rolls as well as the hotdogs.
There was no potato salad or co-
leslaw since they were prepared
with mayonnaise which was not
a popular condiment.
Today firework displays are so
much grander than in the simple
days of the ohs and ahs. Watch-
ing fireworks explode in air with
vibrant colors of red, blue green,
gold, silver and white cascading
gracefully is spectacular. One
stands in awe as sparkling
splashes of colors fall from the
sky. They take your breath away.
However, you are celebrating
“Independence Day” remember
its meaning.
Remember to be grateful and
ask God to continue to bless this
great land. You might want to
sing “Happy Birthday” to Amer-
ica.
Food as always played a major
role in the day. Many times the
food was prepared at home espe-
cially the pasta al forno with per-
patti (meatballs). The large fire-
places in the park were fired up
and chickens brushed with olive
oil, lemons, garlic and rosemary
were roasted on the grill. By one
o’clock the aroma of those
chickens filled your nostrils,
piqued your appetite and were
attacked with great gusto. Food
tasted so much better in the out-
doors.
The wonderful part of those
get together was that everyone
sat to eat dinner together. There
was much gaiety and laughter
between the grownups and the
children.
I can’t recall any quarreling or
bickering. It was just a fun day
for everyone. I must note that
once in the park all the cooking
and cleanup was done by our fa-
thers. It was a special treat for
our mothers.
Our evening fare was half and
the homeland and in foreign
lands. Freedomis not to be taken
for granted or without thought. It
came and come with a high price
of human life.
We have inherited the custom
of picnics, parades and shooting
fireworks on this momentous
celebration from the colonist.
After the Declaration was signed
in 1776 and it was read to the
public invarious Americancities
thunderous cheers and applause
was heard. Parades and militia
events followed with fireworks
following in the evening.
Fourth of July brings back
childhood memories recalled
with sentimental pleasure. It was
a holiday anticipated with eager-
ness for it was a day celebrated
with the
Comate’s, compati’s and their
families who were considered
our cousins. Although our par-
ents were not American born
they accepted and embraced the
holidays and traditions of their
new land.
tions are: “The British Ministry
can read that name without spec-
tacles let them double their re-
ward.”
Among the signers were: Ed-
ward Rutledge at age 24 the
youngest; Benjamin Franklin at
age 70 the oldest; John Adams
and Thomas Jefferson two future
Presidents of the United States;
nine members of the Congress
representing Pennsylvania: Ge-
orge Clymer, Merchant and
Banker; Robert Morris, Mer-
chant, established Bank of the
United States;; Benjamin Rush,
Physician and Educator; James
Smith, Lawyer; George Taylor,
Production and Iron Master;
Benjamin Franklin, Printer and
Publisher; John Morton, Judge;
George Ross, Lawyer and Judge;
and James Wilson, Lawyer.
The fate of some of the 56 men
who signed the original Declara-
tion: five were captured by the
British as traitors and tortured
before their death. The homes of
twelve were confiscated and
burned. Two lost their sons while
serving in the Revolutionary Ar-
my and another had two sons
captured. Nine died of hardships
of the war; eight signers hadtheir
homes vandalized and looted;
one’s wife was jailed where she
died; three were forced from
their homes and their families
vanished. One sold his home and
property to pay his debts and
died in rags; another died bank-
rupt and three died of exhaustion
and broken hearts.
Through the 235 years of
America’s history there has been
much blood shed and sacrifices
made by sons and daughters on

Harry Jackett’s Lunch is named in honor of my Father. He was born and raised in
the “Junction” section of Pittston. He was an Army cook his entire life. All our food
is homemade from scratch...just as he would have.
After owning a restaurant inTennessee for many years, I returned back to his
hometown in 2009 and re-opened the former Central Lunch in honor of him.
If I can prepare meals half as well as he did, I will consider myself a success. -

A 10-year reunion for all former employees of Nesbitt Memorial Hospital will be held on Sept. 2 at
Appletree Terrace, Newberry Estates in Dallas.
For more information, contact Mary Ann Martinsky at 570-287-3484 or Jay Snee at 570-824-5020.
Some of the planning committee members, fromleft, first row, are Madelyn Brennen and Judy Mullen.
Second row, Doug Wolfe, Mary Ann Martinsky, Jay Snee and Nancy Sommers.
Former Nesbitt Hospital
employees reunion slated
the original construction, work
for which Masonry Preservation
Services is well qualified having
won awards for work on the U.S.
Penitentiary at Lewisburg, The
Swetland, Fleck & Darte Hall at
Wyoming Seminary, and the Os-
terhout Library.
Last fall the company did con-
tainment work to minimize win-
ter deterioration. Repair and res-
toration of the masonry obelisk
started in the spring. The cap,
which had been in two pieces,
was waterproofed and the joints
were sealed. The top two courses
of blocks were removed, re-
pointed and replaced and a light-
ning suppression system was in-
stalled.
The cracked survivors plaque
was replaced with a new one do-
nated by the Wyoming Com-
memorative Association. Other
repairs, not associated with the
lightning were also made.
There were some discoveries
during the work. When the con-
tractors removed the granite
plaque they found the original
marble plaque behind it. Though
it is deteriorated it was preserved
and will be on display tomorrow.
When the contractors scraped
the doors, which were painted
black, they found they are made
of bronze. They were varnished
to preserve the bronze look.
Starr, who will offer remarks
tomorrow, said, “I’m so excited.
It’s just beautiful. And I’mproud
to say it has been preserved for
another 75 to 100 years.”
The keynote speaker for to-
morrow’s commemoration cere-
monyis Dr. KennethWolensky, a
noted author and historian who
grew up in Wyoming Valley.
The service celebrates the oc-
casion of the 233rd anniversary
of the Battle of Wyoming. Mayor
Robert Boyer of Wyoming Bor-
ough is the ceremony chair and
master of ceremonies. Monsig-
nor Neil Van Loon of the Church
of St. Maria Goretti in Laflin,
will serve as chaplain. Drs. Jo-
seph and Rose Mattioli will be
guests of honor.
The event will include intro-
ductions of descendents of battle
participants and colonial re-en-
actors.
The Wyoming Monument
honors the more than 170 Con-
necticut settlers who were killed
by Tories and Iroquois Indians
on July 3, 1778, in the Battle of
Wyoming. The remains of those
killedwere foundina mass grave
in May of 1832 and reburied
where the monument stands.
The monument’s construction
began in July of 1833 and was
suspended due to a lack of funds
when the monument reached 20
feet. Construction resumed in
1841 when the Ladies Luzerne
Monumental Association, which
became the Wyoming Monu-
ment Association in1860, raised
money to complete the monu-
ment at a cost of $8,000.
On the 100th anniversary of
the battle on July 3, 1878, a com-
memoration service drew more
than 50,000 people to hear the
main speaker for the event, U. S.
President Rutherford B. Hayes.
The service has been held on
the battle anniversary every year
since. President Theodore Roo-
sevelt visited the Monument in
1905.

Twenty years ago, Ned Jones
wanted to do something nice for
his son, Dave. He was suffering
from a heart condition and
would have liked nothing more
than a signed baseball from one
of his favorite players. Little did
Ned know that 20 years later he
would have amassed one of the
most prolific and impressive
baseball collections one can put
together.
In order to set off on his mis-
sion to get a signed ball, Ned en-
listed the help of his good friend
Mike Carroll. Mike was going to
spring training in Florida and
Ned was going to tag along with
some other friends, including
Dan Llewellyn, Jim Allardyce,
Bill Riccetti, Jim Jumper, and
Tom Lacomis.
Knowing they weren’t going
to get much more than an upper
deck ticket at one of the games,
Carroll decided to try to help the
cause. He went to Ed Ackerman,
then managing editor of the Sun-
day Dispatch, who provided him
with a press pass and send bring
back some photos for the paper.
Neither one was sure if it would
work.
There was one problem
though: no baseball.
A contract dispute had halted
play. But, Ned was not going to
give up on his son.
Next year they tried the same
thing, only this time they had
better results.
They wound up meeting some
of the most famed figures of
baseball including: Yankees Don
Mattingly, Paul O’Neil, Bernie
Williams, and the boss himself,
George Steinbrenner. They were
also able to meet some great
Phillies players, including John
Kruk, Lenny Dykstra and gener-
al manager Bill Giles.
They met the players, they ate
with the players, they drank with
the players, and they shared sto-
ries with them.
Jim Jumper was excited about
seeing a different person. During
one of the games he was stunned
to see Hall of Fame organist Wil-
bur Snapp. Snapp is famous for
playing Three Blind Mice on his
organ once the umpires blew a
call. Eventually the umpire
threw him out. He became the
first and only organist to be
thrown out of a baseball game.
Bill Riccetti even added a bit
of surprise to the trip when, to
the disbelief of the rest of the
group, he called current Red
Baron Dave Cash, and asked him
to show them around. Apparent-
ly, they were good friends and he
was able to give them a tour of
the field.
Through all the excitement
and the activities, Ned Jones was
able to get enough memorabilia
for his son. He returned home
with a big smile and a ton of sto-
ries.
Ned continued to growhis col-
lection of baseball memorabilia
throughout the years. Twenty
years later he has signed base-
balls from players such as:
Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan,
Roger Clemens, Tom Seaver,
Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron,
Willie Mays, Mike Schmidt, Ted
Williams, Yogi Berra, Tom Lar-
son, Harmon Killebrew, Ernie
Banks, Pete Rose, Reggie Jack-
son, Eddie Matthews, Cal Rip-
ken Jr., and Frank Robinson.
Dave Jones, Ned’s son, passed
away the next year on March 15,
1992.

support the health of the women
they know and the next genera-
tion of children by learning the
facts about breastfeeding and
communicating those facts to
their peers. “Talk to me! Breast-
feeding; a 3DExperience,” is the
theme of the approaching World
Breastfeeding Week to be cele-
brated worldwide from August 1
through 7, 2011. This theme en-
compasses the depth and texture
of time-place-talk across the
many facets of a new mother’s
daily life.
Parenthood creates a signifi-
cant climate of change for a
mother, her partner and their
friends; however, choosing to
breastfeed can in fact ease the
transition to the responsibilities
of child care while it enriches the
bond with the newborn. Since
breastfed babies are extremely
portable, social outings are easy
toachieve withthe babyalong. A
dinner-date can still include an
occasional alcoholic beverage
for momtwo or three hours prior
to baby’s next feeding. Recent
researchbya notedcosmetic sur-
geon dispels the myth that
breastfeeding is problematic for
a woman’s figure; on the con-
trary it is especially good for a
woman’s breast health and for
the daughters she breastfeeds.
For more information on the
importance of breastfeeding and
how you can encourage a baby’s
mother as she provides this opti-
mal infant food contact The Lu-
zerne County Breastfeeding
Coalition 570-808-5534. The
Coalition is comprised of repre-
sentatives from Northeastern
Pennsylvania whose mission is
to establish breastfeeding as the
cultural norm in our community
by advocating the promotion,
protection, and support of
breastfeeding. We believe that
establishing more resources for
breastfeeding mothers will en-
courage breastfeeding practices
and improve breastfeeding out-
comes. Local hospitals, Lacta-
tion Consultants, Maternal and
Family Health Services, Penn-
sylvania Department of Health,
Early Head Start, Nurse Family
Partnership, and La Leche
League, sit on this Coalition and
new members are welcome.

The first 18 holes in the final round of
Sunday’s championship flight were not
enough to determine a clear leader heading
into the last nine holes.
As it turns out, neither were the back nine
or the three playoff holes.
The foursome of Don Crossin, Bill
Briggs, Joe Mulhern and Len Coleman re-
mained tied at 14-under par in the 65th an-
nual John A. Allan Tournament better-ball
stroke play format at Fox Hill Country
Club. An 18-hole playoff will be played to-
day, starting at noon, to determine the win-
ner.
The third playoff hole was completed,
with both Crossin-Briggs and Mulhern-Co-
leman making par on the 18th green. Nei-
ther team was able to convert on potential
match-winning putts and the match was
called due to darkness.
Crossin and Briggs were in a similar sit-
uation in last year’s championship event,
eventually losing to Brian Corbett and Bob
Gill on the third playoff hole.
Needing to make a 4-foot putt to win the
tournament on the third playoff hole, Cross-
in’s ball lipped around the edge of the hole.
"I wanted to make it badly," said Crossin,
whose team made seven birdies in the final
round.
Crossin and Briggs were in a three-way
tie heading into the last nine holes of regu-
lationat 10-under 203withMike Hirthler Jr.
and Bill Burke, as well as 2010 PIAA state
champion and Pittston Area senior Bran-
don Matthews and Rick Laneski.
Hirthler Jr.-Burke finished 9-under par
while Matthews-Laneski finished at 12-un-
der.
However, it was Mulhern and Coleman -
7-under with nine to play - who stole the
show as they captivated the gallery follow-
ing them Sunday.
Mulhern was the first to send the crowd
in a frenzy with his first-career hole-in-one.
His hybrid 3-iron shot off the 13th tee trav-
eled 242 yards and landed about 10 feet to
the right of the pin. It broke left, down the
slope of the green and into the cup for the
ace.
"My father just passed away in Decem-
ber," said Mulhern. "It was odd not seeing

When you look into the eyes
of Rex “T-Rex” Harris of Exe-
ter you immediately see a
fighter. The light heavyweight
who stands 6-feet tall weighing
205 pounds is a mountain of
muscle. A wrecking machine
who is trained to take down any
opponent that crosses his path.
“I am a fighter and that’s
what I was born to be,” said
Harris.
But that’s not the only thing
that sets Harris apart from any
other fighter. It’s his determi-
nation, confidence, and will to
succeed that has shaped him
into a champion.
“He is aggressive and has the
heart of a warrior,” said Sean
Diggs, head trainer of World
Class Boxing in Kingston.
Diggs has trained Harris in
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) for
about two years now and says,
“Harris is one of the best fight-
ers I’ve seen in his eight years
as a serious trainer.”
“I’ve always been a fighter
and knew that’s what I wanted
to do since the fourth-grade,”
said Harris. Harris’ fighting
debut was in Ossining, New
York as a wrestler, where he
managed to obtain an impres-
sive 167 wins. He decided to
bring his skills to Wilkes Uni-
versity where he wrestled for
three seasons managing a com-
pelling record of 93 wins and
only 23 losses.
Harris later decided to con-
tinue and expand his skills as a
fighter in the ring as a boxer
where he was trained by his as-
sistant coach Marty Redding of
Pittston. “Fighting is what I al-
ways wanted to do for a living
and this was the only way I
could do it,” said Harris.
Redding a true sportsman,
has been boxing since he was
17 years old and fought as an

Duryea’s Joe Fahey - one of Greater Pittston’s
most well know varsity sports spectators - will
soon get to watch one of his own perform at high
school football’s highest level.
Fahey’s grandson Scott has been selected to play
in the inaugural Semper Fidelis All-American
Bowl in Phoenix, AZ on January 3, 2012.
The Semper Fidelis Bowl, which will be held in
conjunction with Fiesta Bowl Week, is part of a
partnership between Marine Corps Recruiting
Command and Junior Rank. The bowl game,
which will be nationally televised by CBS, will be
an East-West format game featuring the top 100
high school seniors that participated in Junior
Rank camps throughout the year.
Fahey, the son of Joseph and Monica Fahey of
Chesapeake, VA, was selected after his perform-
ance at a Junior Rank Diamond Flight Camp in
Virginia Beach, VA in May. A 5-foot-11, 275-
pound senior center at Hickory High School this
coming fall, Fahey won the leadership award at the
camp.
According to recruit757.com, Junior Rank foun-
der Shaon Berry had this to say about the player
with Greater Pittston roots.
“Scott Fahey was a guy who was picking up his
teammates all weekend long. What we noticed
with Scott was once he understood his role, he
started to help his teammates with their role. He’s a
solid kid. He’s well put together. He just displayed
exceptional leadership for us and he’s a kid that we
thought very highly of.”
The Diamond Flight Camp took place at the Vir-
ginia Beach Field House and Sportsplex, and was
three days of football instruction and evaluation,
and training by the USMC.
Scott is also the grandson of Ann Fahey of Du-
ryea, and Martha McShane of Virginia.

On Friday night at the Atlas,
the Greater Pittston American
Legion baseball team knew it
had to play its most important
game of the season without two
of their best hitters. What they
didn’t know was, they wouldn’t
need them.
Trent Grove delivered in the
clutch by smashing a 0-2 fast-
ball over the head of the
Swoyersville centerfielder to
Greater Pittston a 5-4 victory in
walk-off fashion in a Wyoming
Valley American Legion game
with playoff implications at the
Atlas Sports Complex in West
Pittston.
“It felt great to come through
and get a hit there,” Grove said
with a huge smile. “I haven’t
been hitting well lately and it
felt great to get the win.”
Despite ultimately losing the
game, Swoyersville took an
early 1-0 lead in the top of the
first inning. Nick Hogan led off
the game with a line drive single
to left field and put himself into
scoring position by stealing sec-
ond base.
With one out in the inning,
Joe Pechulis roped and RBI sin-
gle down the first base line.
However, he was thrown out at
second by Greater Pittston right
fielder Sam Eramo after trying
to stretch his single into a dou-
ble.
Swoyersville extended its
lead to 2-0 in the top of the sec-
ond inning after Chris Sabol
drewa walk with the bases load-
ed. Mike Leonard walked home
for Swoyersville after reaching
on an error.
After leaving men on base in
each of the first three innings,
the Greater Pittston offense ex-
ploded for a four-run fourth.
The inning was highlighted by a
three-run triple to right-center-
field off the bat of Nick
O’Brien. Chris Murphy fol-
lowed and roped an RBI-single
to centerfield to give Greater
Pittston a 4-2 lead.
“You just have to play the
hand you’re dealt,” said Greater
Pittston Manager Drew Whyte
of his lineup being void of Ron
Musto and Kody Nowicki. “The
kids battled hard today and Nick
came through with the huge hit
to give us the lead.”
Swoyersville cut the Greater
Pittston lead to just 4-3 in the
top half of the fifth inning as Pe-
chulis scored on an RBI double
down the left field line by Kyle
Lewis.
In the top of the seventh,
Swoyersville knotted the game
at 4-4. Matt Zielen scored from
third on a ground out to first off
the bat of Tyler McGovern.
Greater Pittston first baseman
Anthony Bellino made a fantas-
tic full extension dive to his
glove side to stop the hard hit
grounder by McGovern. If Bel-
lino had not made the play, Pe-
chulis most likely would have
scored to give Swoyersville a
5-4 lead.

hitters in the bottom of the sev-

With both teams fighting for a
spot in the upcoming Wyoming
Valley American Legion playoffs,
one inning could make or break
the game, or a season for Old
Forge and Plains.
Unfortunately one inning – an
extra inning – broke both for the
Post 513 team on Friday night at
Pagnotti Park in Old Forge.
After Old Forge fought back to
force extras, Plains’ Dom Gulius
trickled a sacrifice bunt in the top
half of the eighth which was field-
ed and launched past the first
basemen - allowing the go-ahead
run to score fromsecond as Plains
trumped Post 513, 3-2, to remain
alive for the WVAL postseason
which starts Saturday at Mountain
Post.
Plains tacked on a run right out
of the gate courtesy of Joe Pars-
nik. After Bob Sorokas drew a
walk and Anthony Grillini fol-
lowed with a single, Parsnik laced
an RBI double to left scoring So-
rokas from second as Plains took
the early lead 1-0.
Old Forge starter Ian Neme-
worked out of the inning, retiring
the final two batters to end the
threat, and keep Post 513 in the
game.
Post 513 answered back in the
home half of the second when
Dom Avvisato was hit by a pitch,
and Derek Drasba drew a walk.
After a strikeout and a passed ball,
Nemetz helped out his own cause
with an RBI-fielder’s choice to
plate Avvisato from third as Old
Forge evened up the score at 1-1.
Plains starter Grillini dominat-
ed throughout the middle innings
as Nemetz used timely pitches
along with a solid defense behind
him to keep the visitors off-bal-
ance until the sixth inning.
But in the sixth, Sorokas led off
the sixth with a single to first. Af-
ter a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice
fly to right, Parsnik connected on
his second RBI of the game as he
slapped an fielder’s choice to
shortstop, scoring Sorokas as
Plains (12-5) tooka late 2-1advan-
tage.
Connor Fultz launched Old
Forge’s first hit of the game, a sin-
gle to center and was quickly
chased over to second on a single
by AJ Phillips.
With momentum switching
hands, Drasba followed one batter
later with an RBI single to left
scoring, Fultz from third to tie the
game at 2-2. Grillini restored or-
der and retired the final two bat-
ters he faced, ending the threat.
Entering extra innings, Antho-
ny Grillini led off the eighth with a
sharp double - which screamed
just past a diving Dave Chromey
at first base –toset upthe eventual
game-winning run.
Nemetz went five inning allow-
ing four hits and one earned run
and four strikeouts. Phillips al-
lowed three hits in three innings of
relief in taking the hard-luck loss
for Old Forge.
Old Forge (7-9) will travel to
West Pittston today for a double-
header with Greater Pittston,
starting at noon. They will com-
plete their season during the week
with a game on Tuesday at Nanti-
coke, and a game on Thursday
against Wilkes-Barre.

amateur in his twenties. When he decided to stop
competing Redding decided to bring his unique
knowledge of the sport to World Class Boxing.
“I have a huge passion for the world of boxing
and still needed to be around it,” said Redding.
With Redding’s help along with Harris’ re-
lentless hard work in 2009, Harris became the
Pennsylvania Golden gloves Champion along
with obtaining the Summer Gloves title.
“I wouldn’t be nearly as good in the cage if it
wasn’t for Coach Marty,” said Harris.
Harris wanting to be skilled in all aspects of
fighting decided to throw his hat into the cage as
an MMA fighter. That’s when head coach Sean
Diggs, an expert in Muay Thai, [Moy-tie] Kick-
Boxing, and Jeet Kunedo (Bruce Lee’s style) de-
cided to teach Harris a new way of fighting.
You would think learning a completely new
style of fighting would be difficult, but not for
Harris. Harris combined the technical aspects of
boxing with the fast paced aspects of MMA.
“I train individuals based on their personal-
ities. Harris is aggressive and sometimes it came
so natural to him that we had to ask him to slow
down,” said Diggs.
Harris started competing as an amateur in
MMA back in December defeating the more ex-
perienced Charles Fox by knock out in the first
round. He went on to defeat amateur fighters
Nicholas Piegari and Duane Shelton both by
submission.
“I have the whole package. I use the technical
aspects of boxing, my martial arts, and my wres-
tling background to beat any opponent who
crosses my path,” said Harris.
Now Harris will be facing his biggest chal-
lenge by competing in his first pro MMA com-
petition at the MASS ‘Inauguration’ on July 16,
at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Harris will be
matched up against Ohio’s Chase Owens who
has an amateur record of 9-0 and a professional
record of 2-0. Both have a wrestling background
and both are undefeated.
However, Harris isn’t worried.
“I only worry about me and that’s it. I do not
study my opponents because I bring something
different to the table each time. I know I’m go-
ing to win.”
On the same fighting card is pro undefeated
MMA fighter and training partner Jim “The
Kid” Hettes of Swoyersville. Hettes is another
undefeated fighter whose record is 5-0 as an
amateur and 7-0 as a pro. Hettes is an expert in
Jujitsu and in boxing. He will be facing Jacob
Kirwan who has an amateur record of 3-0 and a
professional record of 8-0.
“We’re both going to win and nothing can stop
us,” said Hettes. Hettes has confidence in Harris
and says that “Rex is an animal and it might be
the first death in MMA.” Both fighters have
trained hard in the gym and say they are ready to
get the job done.
Other local professionals fighting on the
MASS card include Clarks Summit’s James
“Humble Pie” Cianci and West Scranton’s Dave
Morgan. The event also features UFC veteran
Kris McCray.

championships at Seton.
Others include Brendan Carroll, Mike
McGarry, Ian Gilmartin and John Staub who
is the head soccer coach Del Val high school.
Casper said when the season approaches
he’s not sure what it will be like without a
basketball team to coach. “I’m looking to
stay involved in the game at some level,” he
said.
One way he’ll stay involved is to keep his
annual summer camp going by moving it
from St. Mary’s to Wyoming Area Catholic.
“Wyoming Area Catholic A.D., Mike Pro-
ciak, asked me to continue doing my camp at
their site so Mark Casper’s HOOPS4ME
CAMP will continue,” he said.
The camp is August 15 to August 19 at the
Wyoming Area Catholic gym. Call 760-6396
or e-mail hoops4me2@comcast.net for de-
tails or an application.
Another way Casper will stay involved will
be as Wyoming Valley Boys Catholic 8th
Grade League president for the f ifth year.
Casper said that the closing of Catholic
schools in the diocese has caused rumors to
surface that the league would fold.
It won’t. Though down to just f ive schools
-- Holy Rosary, Wyoming Area Catholic, St.
Jude’s Mountaintop, Good Shepherd and St.
Nick’s/St. Mary’s Wilkes-Barre -- the league
will operate next season.
Casper said Good Sheppard, and maybe
one other school, could enter two teams.
Good Sheppard is hosued in the former Bish-
op O’Reilly high school in Kingston.
In it’s heyday the league had seven teams
in the Greater Pittston area alone in St. John
the Baptist, St. Mary’s Avoca, St. Mary’s Old
Forge, St. Mary’s Assumption, Wyoming Ar-
ea Catholic, Mt. Carmel and St. Rocco’s.
Casper said everyone involved with St.
Mary’s and the basketball programs, boys
and girls, over the years deserve praise.
“I want to thank all of the parents for al-
lowing me the privilege of coaching their
children. I want to thank the teachers for
their help and dedication to our student ath-
letes. I also want to thank the past presidents
and athletic directors for all of their cooper-
ation. We always looked good and had the
best equipment.
“Finally, to every player that ever wore an
SMA uniform, did a side drill, ran 17’s, or
ran the dreaded ‘steps’, thanks for giving it
your all and thanks for doing it the right way.
It was my pleasure to have coached you and
to have been a small part of your life.”
Casper to remain active in WVCL

Last winter, the only thing I heard when it came to the NewYork
Yankees is how they didn’t have any pitching and how they were
going to be in trouble in the 2011 season because they were weak
at that position.
What the fans don’t realize, and it is funny how this never
seemed to be brought up in the offseason, is howdeep the Yankees
actually are in starting pitching.
The fans of the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees should be
flooding to the stadium just to see the pitching talent this team
has.
They started this season with an all-prospect starting rotation.
How many teams can say that?
They have one of the three most hyped pitchers in the orga-
nization in Andrew Brackman. He is projected to be a top of the
line starter in the majors someday.
I’m not entirely convinced on Brackman just yet though. He’s
got good stuff but the control is just not there yet. He’s one of
those players that only time will tell but it’s still worth going to see
such a highly ranked pitcher.
The SWB rotation also has D.J. Mitchell, Adam Warren, and
David Phelps in their stacked rotation. These players have been
called the Yankees “second tier prospects.” They’re only called
that, though, because the Yankees have the three super-prospects
in Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances (both are at Double-A Tren-
ton) and Brackman.
Those pitchers are good enough that they would be top prospec-
ts on any other team. Some of them might even already be in the
majors by now if they weren’t with the Yankees.
They each have their advantages and disadvantages, though.
D.J. Mitchell has always struggled in his career against lefties.
This raises some concern because as a starting pitcher you need to
command both lefties and righties. It seems, though, that Mitchell
might have that figured out because lefties are only hitting .266
against him this year.
He is an interesting prospect but I think he has the lowest chance
out of the three pitchers to be successful at the big league level.
Adam Warren, on the other hand, is having a terrific season.
He’s pitching to a 3.09 ERA so far this season and he’s off to the
best start out of the group.
Warren is the type of prospect that gets you excited to have him
on your team. He hasn’t struggled at any level, going back to his
college days in North Carolina. The fascinating part about Warren
is that he throws three different fastballs: one that breaks left, one
that breaks right and one that drops. Having all three of those
pitches will really help Warren go far.
The final prospect is David Phelps. He is the pitcher that I like
the most in SWB. Phelps is known for having what they call a
“bulldog mentality” because his game is to attack the strike zone.
Attacking the strike zone allows Phelps to keep his pitch count
down and it lets him go deep into the games.
In my opinion, Phelps has the best shot. His approach at the
plate is exactly what you need to handle those pressures of pitch-
ing in New York and he has the stuff to go with it.
With the injuries that the Yankees have been getting hammered
with, fans should really be keeping an eye on these players. I think
at least one of them will be up in the Bronx sooner rather than
later.
Tommy Romanelli is a WA Grad and a sophomore at LCCC. He
writes for pinstripesplus.com. His thoughts on the SWB Yankees
will appear in the Dispatch throughout the season.

him here this weekend. That ace
on No.13 was for him."
Not to be outdone by his team-
mate, Coleman sent his second
shot from 150 yards out on the
par-4 No. 17 to the top on the
green. The ball slowly descended
from the fringe and fell in for ea-
gle.
"My partner has been saying all
weekend, we call the Allan(tour-
nament) Christmas inJune," Mul-
hern said. "The adrenaline was re-
ally flowing after that one."
The duo went 7-under during
the last nine holes of regulation to
tie Crossin and Briggs, forcing
the first of what would be three
playoff holes.

Pittston Area second baseman R.J. Emmett recently signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at
Lackawanna College. Emmett has been a two-year starter at second base for the Patriots. He was an
important contributor to the Wyoming Valley Conference Division I Eastern champions this season,
often hitting in the cleanup spot. He plans on majoring in Life Sciences. R.J. chose Lackawanna College
because of the high caliber baseball he will play and because of the program’s success rate placing players
into high-quality four year programs. He credits the whole program, including Coach Zaffuto, Coach
Richards, and Coach Brogna, for inspiring him to continue his baseball career.
R.J. is shown seated and flanked by his parents Ralph and Juliann. Standing, John Haas, high school
principal; Ace Brogna, assistant coach; Chris Pensack, Lackawanna College baseball coach; Paul Zaffu-
to, PA baseball coach; Charlie Turco, PA athletic director; and Art Savokinas, assistant principal.

Just think about it, the year is
half over. That’s right there are
six months left to the year 2011.
It seems like just yesterday when
we were preparing to bring in the
New Year with all of the parties
and celebrations. Summer is
here and it is time to get into the
groove and enjoy it before the
second half of this year passes.
There is plenty to do this holiday
weekend. Fishing, camping, hik-
ing and boating are the obvious
solutions. I have spent a good
deal of time outside over the past
two weeks. While I enjoyed ev-
ery minute of it, most of it was
spent dodging thunderstorms.
The river may be less than per-
fect for bass fishing but then a
bad day of fishing is better than a
good day at work. I recently
spent a day on the west branch of
the river in Lycoming County.
This part of the Susquehanna
River was also less than ideal
and yet we still caught enough
bass for an upcoming program
on Pennsylvania Outdoor Life.
Our cameras and fishing gear al-
so spent a day on Lake Wallen-
paupack. This trip began right at
daybreak in the middle of the
week. We all agreed that the con-
ditions were perfect for wetting a
line and it was. We boated more
than our share of fish before the
rest of the boaters hit the water.
We fished well past noon be-
fore saying Uncle. The main rea-
son for leaving the lake was the
choppy waves created by the rec-
reational boaters. Jet skis, water
skiers and speed boats covered
the lake by one o’clock and it
was time to head home. The
boating sports are alive and well
in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat
Commission are aware of the in-
crease in recreational boating
and they have asked us to remind
boaters to follow safety precau-
tions when they are on the water.
“Boating is among the most
popular of summer recreational
activities and a lot of people like
to anchor their boats and go
swimming,” said Ryan Walt,
PFBC boating and watercraft
safety manager. “However, a day
of fun and sun out on the water
could end in serious injury or
even death if boaters don’t fol-
low appropriate safety precau-
tions. Every year we see acci-
dents in which individuals
swimming behind boats are
struck by propellers.”
Last year in Pennsylvania, 72
boating accidents were reported
to the Pennsylvania Fish and
Boat Commission, 15 of which
involved individuals being
struck by propellers. Since 2000,
three people have died as a result
of being struck by a propeller.
According to the U.S. Coast
Guard, more than 6,000 boating
accidents occur every year.
The Commission says propel-
ler strikes are among the most
preventable of all boating acci-
dents. It’s simple, follow a few
safety precautions and enjoy a
safe boating experience. It be-
gins before the boat engine is
started. Be sure to check around
the motor to make sure no one is
nearby. Always attach the lan-
yard to the engine cut-off switch
to your life jacket. If the lanyard
is removed from the switch, the
engine will shut off. Talk with
the passengers about the propel-
ler and the danger of swimming
next to it. Discuss preventing
falls overboard: Maintain three
points of contact; keep your
weight low and close to the cen-
terline. Avoid rough water and
adverse weather conditions
whenever possible. Limit alco-
hol use. Make sure everyone has
a life jacket on and assign a pas-
senger to keep watch around the
propeller area of your boat when
people are in the water. Safe
boating and common sense are
important when boating. For
more information on boating
safety, go to the Pennsylvania
Fish and Boat Commission
homepage at www.fishandboat-
.com.
There are safety practices for
just about every formof outdoor
recreation. Remember to wear
sun screen and bug spray. If hik-
ing is your bag, wear the right
shoes and drink enough water to
stay hydrated. Outdoor fires are
a major part of a camping trip.
Be sure to build fires responsib-
ly and put themout before walk-
ing away. Common sense should
not be forgotten at home when
packing for your summer adven-
ture. Be prepared, be safe and
enjoy your 4th of July holiday
weekend!
Sunday Hunting Update.
Two weeks ago I spoke out on
behalf of Sunday hunting in
Pennsylvania. It’s all because the
House Game and Fisheries
Committee are holding public
hearings on the topic. I made a
few points about the changing
times and the need for our state
to allowhunting to compete with
the rest of the activities allowed
on Sunday. I wrote about chil-
dren’s sports, shopping, gam-
bling as well as liquor sales. All
of which you can do on a Sun-
day.
The article also included the
fact that the State Lawmakers
had to change the lawthat would
allow the Game Commission to
decide on Sunday hunting. It al-
so pointed out that the Pennsyl-
vania Game Commission hadn’t
taken a stand at all on the topic.
That changed this week at the
Pennsylvania Game Commis-
sion meeting.
The Pennsylvania Board of
Game Commissioners approved
a resolution to support repeal of
the statutory prohibition on Sun-
day hunting. In short, they want
the right to make the decision to
hunt on Sunday. The resolution
was proposed by Game Com-
missioner Jay Delaney Jr. (our
local representative on the Com-
mission) and seconded by Game
Commissioner Ralph A. Mar-
tone. The final tally was four in
favor, three opposed with one
abstention. Game Commission
staff will present the resolution
to the House Game and Fisheries
Committee at the next hearing.
The meat of the resolution in-
cludes many reasons for a
change. They include such
things as consistent declines in
hunting participation by both
resident and non-resident hun-
ters over the past several dec-
ades, the need to increase youth
participation by effectively dou-
blingthe number of huntingdays
for youths during the school year
by offering Sunday hunting, and
recruiting new hunters and re-
taining current hunters by in-
creasing hunting opportunities.
It alsoincludedsome econom-
ic points as well as a fewpositive
notes about traditional hunting
camps and clubs. You can read
the entire resolutiononthe Penn-
sylvania Game Commission
webpage at: www.pgc.state-
.pa.us.
I applaud Commissioner De-
laney and the other Commis-
sioners in favor of the resolution
for their actions this week. Now
it’s time to get on the lawmakers
to act accordingly. With that
said, remember to get your hunt-
ing license because the first
round of antlerless deer permits
can go in the mail next Monday,
July 11th.
Plenty to do this holiday weekend

Blandina Apartments split their
two games and remains in first
primarily because the second,
third and fourth place teams beat
up on each other. With just one
week left in the first half the num-
ber one spot is still up for grabs.
Dyller Law swept all three
matches this and firmly secured a
playoff spot. The Lawmen are
Paul Santarelli, EraldBiondi, Bar-
ry Dyller and Paul Minichelli.
They will be a force to be wary of
come the second half.
Atlas Realty is an enigma. This
week they were undefeated. Last
week they lost all their matches.
Consistent is not the middle name
of this team. At times theyarebril-
liant, other times they are tar-
nished. Through all their ups and
downs they are hanging onto the
final playoff spot and making the
post-season is the name of the
game.
The Realtors are Tony Reino,
Hank Rodeghiero, Dr. Steve Mar-
ianni andAl "TheHitman"DeAn-
gelis. Al has acquired his new
nickname because of his uncanny
hits this week. His hitting prowess
came to the fore this week. He is
our "Fosco" of the week.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of
Guy DePascale Jr. and Sr. the
league now has state of the art
scoreboards.

Top spot up for
grabs in Yatesville
out. However, Randy McDer-
mott drewa key walk and Grove
shattered any hopes Swoyers-
ville had of winning the game
with a walk-off double.
Murphy was terrific for Grea-
ter Pittston on the mound and
earned the complete-game win.
He allowed four runs, only two
of which were earned, while
striking out five.
“I knew we would be playing
without a couple of our best hit-
ters, so I wanted to make sure I
had my best stuff today,” Mur-
phy said. “I felt like my curve
ball was really keeping hitters
off balance and I was able to
command my fastball.”
Bellino, Grove, Eramo, and
Murphy each had two hits in the
5-4 Greater Pittston win.
The victory puts GP in posi-
tion to qualify for the postsea-
son and defend their WVAL ti-
tle with a 12-3 record. The top
four teams in the league qualify
for the playoffs, and Greater
Pittston is currently second be-
hind Back Mt. who is 14-3.
But the postseason is not se-
cure for the locals as Plains
(12-5), Nanticoke (12-6) and
Swoyersville (12-7) are all close
behind with five games left for
GP. Greater Pittston played a
doubleheader against Tunkhan-
nock (5-9) yesterday after Dis-
patch deadlines, and play today
in a doubleheader against Old
Forge (7-9) before finishing the
season at Mountain Post (5-12)

Saturday at Mountain Post.

third loss in four games as Nan-
ticoke rallied for a 7-4 victory
on Wednesday afternoon.
Nick O’Brien paced the GP
offense with two hits, and Trent
Grove, Matt Carroll and Ryan
Carey each had RBI singles.
Anthony Bellino was dealt
the loss after allowing 10 hits
and seven earned runs in 4.1 in-
nings of work. Kyle Colarusso
finished the game for GP, pitch-
ing the final 1.2 innings while
allowing two hits and three
walks.
GP 8, Hazleton 0
Greater Pittston bounced
back from its first two losses of
the season with an 8-0 win over
Hazleton on Tuesday afternoon
at the Atlas Sports Complex in
West Pittston.
Sam Eramo pitched the com-
plete-game shutout, scattering
seven hits and a walk while
striking out three. Eramo also
smacked three hits, including a
double and drove in a run.
Trent Grove added a three-run
double for GP, and Matt Carroll
collected two hits and two RBI.
Ryan Carey also stroked two
hits for Greater Pittston.
GP 12, Back Mt. 15, 10 inn.
Greater Pittston lost its first
WVAL game of the season in a
15-12, 10-inning loss to Back
Mountain on Sunday afternoon
in the completion of a suspend-
ed game at the Atlas Sports
Complex in West Pittston.
Back Mountain scored three
in the top of the tenth against
Chris Murphy to earn the victo-
ry against the previously unde-
feated league leaders.
Ron Musto smacked four hits,
including a home run to lead GP
at the plate. Ryan Carey added
three hits, and Murphy contrib-
uted two hits – including a home
run and a double - and two RBI
for the defending WVAL
champs.
Murphy pitched the last three
innings for GP, allowing three
hits and two earned runs while
walking four and striking out
three.
GP 3, Back Mt. 7
Greater Pittston also dropped
the second game of the short
doubleheader at Atlas in a 7-3
loss to Back Mountain in the
regular-scheduled game on
Sunday.
Back Mt. got to Murphy for
six earned runs in the first three
innings as the Wyoming Area
grad also got the start in the sec-
ond game after finishing up the
suspended game.
Nick O’Brien paced GP at the
plate with three hits. Anthony
Bellino added a two-run single
for Greater Pittston, and Andre
Harris, Ryan Carey and Sam
Eramo each contributed singles.

relief, allowing five hits and a
