I talk to God all the time. I
dont mind admitting that.
My prayers these days are
mostly asking him to make me
smart enough to get out of the
way and let him take charge.
It wasnt always like that.
What I used to do was give him
a list of things I wanted him to
do. I might as well have said:
God, grab a pencil and take
this down. How arrogant.
Thank God hes God, though,
because I believe during those
times instead of getting upset,
all he did was smile at me and
say, Isnt that cute. When I
finally came to realize the best
thing about God is that he
doesnt listen to me, our rela-
tionship really took off.
A lot of my chats with God,
particularly on Friday nights
and almost always on Saturday
mornings are something like,
So, got any ideas what I
should write about? The cool
thing is he often does.
Saturday morning, for exam-
ple, I opened a section of The
Times Leader that I normally
toss aside along with the classi-
fied ads and advertising inserts.
Its called Community News.
What made me open it, I dont
know. But who made me open
it well, I think I just ex-
plained that.
In the Community News
section I came across an article
about the upcoming inaugural
fall banquet of JMJ Catholic
Radio 750 AM, and the guest
speaker Fred Berretta. Weve
been running little blurbs about
this in the Dispatch the past
couple of weeks and because of
it Fred has been on my mind.
I got to hear Fred speak a
couple of years ago at the Holy
Name Society smoker at Our
Lady of Mount Carmel Church
in fact, as toastmaster, I not
only got to introduce him, but
also to sit alongside him during
the dinner and immediately
bought and read his book,
Flight of Faith, My Miracle on
the Hudson.
It might seem crazy to say
you love a person youve spent
all of about three hours with,
but love is the only word I can
use to describe my feelings
toward Fred.
The week after the smoker in
2010, I wrote my column about
Fred and Saturday morning I
decided to look it up to see
what I said. You would think I
have a big file of all the co-
lumns Ive written, but I dont.
Ive never clipped out a single
one to save and I dont even
have a file on my computer.
Ive been writing columns for
more than 25 years and always
felt that once these things are
written they have a life of their
own. So, if I want to find an old
one even one from just two
years ago it can be an adven-
ture. And not always a success-
ful one.
Thats another time I talk to
God. Saturday morning I said,
If Im supposed to write about
Fred Berretta this week, let me
know by putting that old Dis-
patch in my hands. I had it in
five minutes.
The headline on that column
was A miracle within a mira-
cle, and it began with this:
As Fred Berretta approached
the 30 minute mark in his
speech to the men of Our Lady
of Mount Carmel Church last
Sunday night, I looked around
the hall taking inventory of who
was still with him. Half-an-hour
is a long time to hold the in-
terest of a crowd, but from my
vantage point at the head table,
it was clear Fred had lost no
one. Every eye, and that in-
cluded those of some teen-aged
boys, was glued on him.
And why not?
Fred is not only a remarkably
gifted story teller, he also has a
remarkable story to tell.
On January 15, 2009, Fred
was one of the 155 people
standing on the wings of an
airplane floating down the
Hudson River after making an
emergency landing. The rescue
of every one of those people
has come to be known as The
Miracle on the Hudson.
What happened inside of
Fred Berretta that day was the
miracle within the miracle.
A pilot himself, Fred knew
better than anyone on the plane,
save perhaps pilot Chesley
Sullenberger, what was most
likely going to happen when
that Airbus slammed into the
Hudson at about 155 miles per
hour. Even if it did not break up
on impact killing all aboard, the
chances of surviving in the icy
water were 50-50, at best.
In those final moments, Fred
says he told God, If it is your
will for me that today I die, I
accept that will.
And in doing so, he told the
men at Mount Carmel, he
found peace. I concluded my
column on Freds speech in
2010 with this: I wish all of you
could have been there.
That wish can come true, in a
way, on Sunday, Nov. 11, when
Fred Berretta returns. The ban-
quet is at 5 p.m. at St. Antho-
nys Center, Exeter, following a
special 4 p.m. Mass at St. An-
thonys Church of St. Barbaras
parish nearby. For reservations,
call 451-1903, 287-4670, or go
to jmjbenefit@comcast.net.

Pennsylvania State Trooper
Joshua D. Miller was killedinthe
line of duty nearly three-and-a-
half years ago on Rt. 611near To-
byhanna. Wednesday his nation
bestowed on him a posthumous
honor on him, renaming the post
office in Pittston the Trooper
Joshua D. Miller Post Office
Building.
The ceremony was attended
by Millers widow Angie Miller
and her family along with U.S.
Congressman Lou Barletta, who
sponsored the bill to rename the
Post Office; Frank Noonan, the
PA State Police commissioner;
postal service officials, state and
local dignitaries.
In addition, dozens of state
troopers, many from the Swift-
water Barracks where Miller was
last stationed, were on hand.
One trooper in attendance was
Robert Lombardo, from Pittston
and Millers partner who was
wounded on that night in 2009.
Miller was slain while on duty
on June 7, 2009 while rescuing a
nine-year old boy fromhis father
who had kidnapped him. The
Pittston native and 1992 gradu-
ate of Pittston Area High School
was just 34 years old.
Congressman Barletta spoke
of Millers devotion to his family,
and of his being a faithful friend
anda hero. Josh died not just
protecting that child, but protect-
ing all of us, Barletta said.
Barletta noted how Miller was
an inspiration to all including a
unnamed fellow trooper from
Swiftwater who stated that he
tries to emulate Miller since his
first day on the street as a lawen-

The plaque we will place on
the wall in his honor will remind
future generations of his com-
mitment and service. It will con-
tinue to inspire those who learn
of Joshs courage and selfless-
ness, added Barletta.
Commissioner Noonan com-
mended Barletta. This is a tre-
mendous tribute to the family,
said Noonan. You would think
something like this would be a
snap to get done. All you need is
the House of Representatives,
the U.S. Senate and the President
to agree on anything (which) is
almost impossible. He (Barletta)
just would not take no for an an-
swer.
Angie Miller, Joshuas widow,
thanked Barletta for continuing
the pursuit in getting the build-
ing renamed in her late husband.
And to the citizens of Pittston
for continuing to remember Josh
and keep him alive with events

Pennsylvania Governor Tom
Corbett made a scheduled stop
Friday in Greater Pittston to tour
the levee in Wyoming before
conducting a walking tour of
Susquehanna Avenue in West
Pittston.
In West Pittston, the governor
met with members of the 109th
Infantry Regiment of the Penn-
sylvania Army National Guard
who were called to duty during
the flood of 2011. Corbett
thanked Colonel Michael Kunz-
man from the 109th along with
his soldiers for their service dur-
ing the flood.
Also joining the tour was Lu-
zerne County Emergency Man-
agement Agencys coordinator,
Stephen Bekanich; JimBrozena,
Luzerne Countys Executive Di-
rector Engineers Office; Wil-
liam Goldsworthy, deputy direc-
tor of the Governors Northeast
Regional Office; Glenn Cannon,
director of the Pennsylvania
Emergency Management Agen-
cy; Barry Hosier, president of
West Pittston council; and Savi-
no Bonita, West Pittston Bor-
ough manager.
Corbett noted the ironic twist
to his visit with Hurricane Sandy
possibly heading towards Penn-
sylvania. We may be recipients
of a fair amount of rain here in
eastern Pennsylvania, said Cor-
bett. We are leaning forward
is the termwe that we use. We are
getting ready for what appears to
be a significant incident with the
storm next week.
Corbett said that Harrisburg
was ready for the storm stating
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) and the
Pennsylvania Emergency Man-
agement Agencies (PEMA)
were ready to spring into action
if needed.
Along the tour, Corbett met
withseveral West Pittstonians af-
fected by the flood. Pete Sidari,
Tina Kinsey, and Dorothy La-
grue spoke to Corbett regarding
their uphill climb in recovery.
When asked about what the
state could do to help West Pitt-
ston in the form of protection
against another flood, Corbett
said the river is under the juris-
diction of the Army Corps of En-
gineers.
A lot of it falls to them, said
Corbett. We have worked with
communities individually and
its very hard to do anything
without substantial sums of
moneythat we looktothe federal
government for. The federal gov-
ernment has been spending a lot
of money.

In 1943 Louis Roman, then a
19-year-old Army Airman, was
assigned to a flight crew in
France, but when the crew was
called to its first mission, a
bombing run over Germany, Ro-
man wasnt on it. Hed been
bumped by a tent mate, an air-
man more experienced on the
B-26.
That mission never came
back. All aboard were killed.
Subsequently, Roman flew 19
bombing missions over Germa-
ny as a flight engineer and top
turret gunner before being dis-
charged in November 1945.
Though he experienced a couple
hairy missions a one-engine
emergency landing and a couple
of engagements with German
fighters he escaped injury.
Roman, 88, earned medals,
but it wasnt until Friday that
they were presented to himwhen
Congressman Lou Barletta did
the honors at a ceremony in front
of the Pittston Post Office.
Rep. Barletta presented the
medals to Roman after the dedi-
cation of the post office in Pitt-
ston in honor of fallen Pennsyl-
vania State Police Trooper Josh-
ua D. Miller.
Mr. Roman waited a very
long time for his medals, and Im
proud to present them to him,
Barletta said. Wednesday was a
day of heroes for me. These men
made extraordinary sacrifices,
both abroad and at home. They
certainly deserve to be recog-
nized and remembered.
Roman was accompanied by
his daughter, Linda Hoban, who
said, Because of the date, dads
age and his ill health, this is a
special day.
When Roman got his medals,
it was 70 years to the day he en-
listedinthe Army. He enlistedon
Friday, Oct. 26, 1942 after work-
ing the 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift at
Roman Taxi, the family business
in Pittston.
He and a friend, Jake Ben-
fante, both 18, had spent that
night talking about the war and
by morning they had talked
themselves in to enlisting.
At seven oclock, Roman
said, we walked across the
street to the Laurel Line, went to
Wilkes-Barre and enlisted.
Roman chose the Army Air
Corps but the Army bureaucracy
couldnt decide what to do with
him. They shipped him to Mis-
sissippi for mechanics, then to a
Ford plant in Michigan where
B-24s were built. I went top to
bottom on B-24, Roman said.
Fromthere, he was assigned to
a bombsquadroninKansas, then
to a gunnery school in Texas to
learn the 50 caliber machine gun
and then to New Mexico as a
gunnery instructor.
In New Mexico, an argument
led to his being shipped to Eu-
rope. I got into words with a
Second Louie, Roman said.
And he said, Im going to get
you. I went to the major and he
said he couldnt do anything
about it but that he had to send a
man overseas. I said, you got
him.
So the Army shipped Roman
to Scotland and, finally, to
France. With all the reassigning,
the Army forgot something basic
basic training.
When I shipped out to Scot-
land, they asked me where I did
basic training and I said I didnt.
They looked at the paperwork in
front of themand the one guy put
a stamp on it and said, You just
had basic training.
After over a year of gunnery
and mechanical training, Roman
arrived in Beauvais, France for
his final stop in late 1943.
Though he had trained on the
B-24s, four-engine heavy bom-
bers, he was assigned to a group
flying two-engine medium
B-24s and that may have saved
his life.
He was bumped fromthat first
mission because he had never
flown a B-24 before.
Romans duty became being
an extra man. He filled in when-
ever engineers and turret gun-
ners were needed on the B-24
crews.
As an extra man he flew 19
missions. My job was to stand
behind the pilots during take off
and watch the instruments, then
pull the pins on the bombs and
then go up to the top turret.
For entertainment between
missions, the airman watched an
adopted dog parachute over the
field. At 5 a.m. many mornings,
Roman was awakened by the
awesome sound of formations of
B-24s flying overhead on bomb-
ing missions from England.
The heavies had it rough, Ro-
man said. Their missions were
10, 12 hours.
The B-24 missions from
France were half that.
Roman was discharged in No-
vember 1945, having served
three years and one month.
Back in Pittston he returned to
work in the taxi office. One night
Julie Micklas came in looking
for a cab. She found a cab - and a
husband. The two married in
1947 when Julie was only a year
and one half out of St. Johns
high school.
The Roman family sold the
taxi business and Louis went on
to a career in construction with
PPL. Louis and Julie were mar-
ried 46 years before her death in
1993. They had four children,
Robert F., of Bethlehem, retired
FBI ; daughters, Linda Hoban, of
Hughestown; Cheryl, of Colora-
do; and Julianne, of South Car-
olina. Roman said he had a good
career, a fine family and a nice
long retirement, though he often
thinks hownone of it would have
happened if he hadnt been
bumped fromthat bombing mis-
sion 70 years ago.

With three weeks to go before
the curtain is scheduled to go up
on its first stage production, the
Pittston Downtown Arts Center
in the old St. Casimirs Church is
sending out an SOS.
The Applause Theatre Com-
pany is supposed to unveil the
Downtown Arts
Center with a pro-
duction of the
Wizard of Oz be-
ginning on No-
vember 16.
But before
Church Street
turns into the Yel-
low Brick Road,
the center must
apply for an occu-
pancy permit and
that is being held up by some
code deficiencies, especially in
handicapped accessibility.
Gina Malsky, the manager of
the center, said change of use up-
ped the code requirements. Be-
cause were changing it from a
church to a theater means it has
to meet new codes.
Dave Williams, the citys code
officer, said thats true, but that
the difference isnt great.
Also complicating the process
is the fact that the city changed
code enforcement officers since
Downtown Arts bought St. Casi-
mirs. Time and money are crit-
ical and Downtown Arts and Ap-
plause, both non-profits, are ap-
pealing for help in the form of
donations of money or in-kind
work. For example help with
paving the parking lot which is
crackedandupheavingwouldbe
huge.
Malsky said the
center got a quote
for $3,000 to cre-
ate one parking
slot.
Bill Mentz, the
president of Co-
vington Studios
which designing
and building the
performance
space, said a
handicapped ac-
cessible upgrade could cost
$100,000.
Applause and the center have
already spent thousands convert-
ing the church. Downstairs the
center built a handicapped rest
room, upgraded the electrical
and tore out below code kitchen
equipment. Upstairs Applause
has built partitions, painted, re-
surfaced the floor and patched
wall cracks. Covington fabricat-

More than 70 percent of Luzerne County lawenforcement officers are not provided with bullet-
proof vests.
To sponsor a vest or donate any amount or lawenforcement officers in need are asked to contact

like this, with everything and
anything to carry on his name
and to keep him remembered,
she remarked.
During her emotional speech,
Angie Miller shared her
thoughts on Joshs inner strength
and his ability to never give up.
Nothing was ever handed to
him, she added. He was an in-
credible father, who loved
spendingtime withhis children.
She noted how he attended
teacher conferences, changed
diapers and did whatever he
needed to do. He was a wonder-
ful husband, she remarked.
She spoke about the meaning
of havingthe post cffice building
named after Miller. Naming
this building after Josh today
means so much to me and my
family. Long after everyone
standing here today is gone, the
plaque with his name will still be
here, she said.
There are people continuing
to keep him alive, Angie Miller
added. Pittston has been won-
derful. Pittston has been amaz-
ing to our family and the support
they have given and honor and
respect and integrity that they
give Josh has been phenomenal.
I see it at the Tomato Festival 5k
run when they (state troopers)
run by and I hear parents telling
their children who they are run-
ning for.
The pain never goes away,
said Josh Millers mom Peggy,
whobecame a widowherself just
a year ago. God has his reasons
and he needed a hero.
Peggy Miller, mother of the late Josh Miller, is consoled by U. S.
Congressman Lou Barletta during the Pittston Post Office renam-
ing ceremony Wednesday.

Question
In 1973, what did
engineers for the
Erie Lackawanna
Railroad continually
do that infuriated
local residents?
1953 59 Years Ago
Anthony Galinskas came to the
United States in 1907 after having
served in the Russian army.
He settled in Pittston and worked
in the mines.
After three years, he decided to
give the grocery business a try and
took a job at the Pauxtis Store at
123 N. Main St..
In 1953, celebrating 42 years at the
store, Galinskas remembered when he
delivered groceries with a horse and
buggy covering Old Forge to Parsons
on the East side and as far south as
Swoyersville on the West side.
In 1915, he found himself making
deliveries in a shiny Model T
Ford. Throughout his employment at
the store, he served as a buyer,
bookkeeper, clerk and agent.
The West Pittston High School
football squad had many nicknames,
The Green Wave, Little Notre Dame
and Steamrollers among them.
With so many names given, the
faculty and school decided to vote
on a name for the team.
The majority chose the West Pitt-
ston Rams.
The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring
Photographer asked:
What do you consider to be the
best thing you ever did?
Geraldine Walsh, of Pittston, an-
swered, I dont believe I did any-
thing extraordinary but at St. Johns
Business School I received awards
for speed in shorthand and typing. I
was quite proud.
George Kamizis, of Inkerman,
stated, I straightened out the road
repairs in Jenkins Twp. while a su-
pervisor. I had three streets paved
and oiled all the dirt roads in the
township.
Mrs. Mary McHale, of Pittston,
added, Getting married. My husband
and I will be married 25 years this
year. Im also proud of being imme-
diate past president of the John Stark
American Legion Auxiliary.
Family and members of the Char-
les W. Falzone Post American Le-
gion met the body of Private An-
drew Salvo at the Lehigh Valley
Railroad Station.
Salvo was killed accidentally while
in maneuvers in Germany.
The writer describes the scene,
The cortege moved over Water
Street from the station to Main
Street then south to Railroad and the
Salvo home. The Legion detail pre-
ceded the hearse and after came the
parents, family and Army escort.
The Falzone Post detail marched
through the city as the cortege
moved slowly under the flags dis-
played on Main Street.
1963 49 Years Ago
On September 12, 1873, a group
of civic-minded men living in West
Pittston held a meeting in the office
of Thomas Ford and founded the
West Pittston Library Association.
It was organized as a corporation
in which stock was sold at $10 a
share and persons other than stock-
holders were permitted to borrow
books on payment of $4 per year.
In October of 1963, Mrs. Joseph
Namutka, Mrs. Robert Barber,
Mrs. Reginald Ellis, Mrs. Leona S.
Cooley, Mrs. Joseph Linskey, Mrs.
Richard Jones, Mrs. James W. Al-
lan, Mrs. Rufus Bierly, Mrs. Ken-
neth Lewis and Mrs. Robert Bon-
ser were members of committee
planning the 90th anniversary of the
library.
The women decided to make the
affair a community day with an open
house and ceremony to commemorate
the date.
According to the library website,
West Pittston librarians have in-
cluded Antoinette King, Sarah Ma-
son, Elizabeth Kipp, Charlotte Ma-
son, Hazel Poe, Nancy Owens, Elsie
Ellis, Myra Simons, Helen Dietrich,
Barbara Weiskerger, Lauren Harris
Grego, Brad Mahalsky, Marie
Hoover, Betty Kasulanis, Barbara
Edwards, Anne Ruggles, Barbara
Ries, Mary Dotter, Charlene Berti,
Jennifer Bromfield and currently
Anne Bramblett Barr.
St. Peters Evangelical Lutheran
Church in Hughestown celebrated its
centennial with a congregational din-
ner at the church.
Some of those in attendance were
Howard Fedden, Charles Burkel,
Glenn McArdle, David Evans, Ells-
worth Craig, Gilbert Herbert, Rob-
ert Williams, James Buxton, Ho-
ward Renfer and Lester Felken-
burg. Dinner chairmen were Ernest
Pliscott and Earl Dickenson.
The First Ward Social Club in
Exeter broke ground on a stretch of
land known as Back Road.
The land measuring 90 feet across
and 513 feet deep was to be cleared
for a recreational site for children of
the ward. Attorney Thomas Ma-
chland and county surveyor Eugene
Bender broke ground. Mayor Dan
Ripa turned the property deed over
to Robert Nicholson, club president.
According to Bizapedia.com, the
social clubs name was first regis-
tered in February of 1959.
1973 39 Years Ago
Exeter Township was among the
first to receive a grant as part of the
federal governments program provid-
ing assistance to flood stricken areas.
Col. William V. Tanski, chief of
the engineering department of Eco-
nomic Development Administration,
presented the board of supervisors
with a $141,165 check to cover the
first expenses on a new municipal
building and several road projects.
Avoca residents were asked to
open their hearts and pocketbooks
to help raise remaining money need-
ed to complete the recreation area
project on Plane Street.
A three-court tennis area and curb-
ing was completed and with only
half of the $7,000 contractors bill
paid, the Avoca Recreation Commit-
tee planned fundraisers and hoped to
accept more donations from the com-
munity.
Duryea resident and all scholastic
football player at Pittston Area High
School, Jim Morris was honored at
a game as a potential All-American
linebacker at the United States Air
Force Academy at Annapolis, MD.
Three hundred local residents trav-
eled to Maryland to pay tribute to
Morris and present him with a
plaque on behalf of the Sacred Heart
Altar Boys of which Jim had been a
member for ten years.
The Air Force coach told the
group it had been the first time a
hometown singled out a player of
the Air Force team.
Among those present were Carl
Witkowski, Hank McHale, John
Roberts, Jim Russavage, Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Morris, Sam Cap-
itano Jr., Rev. Dr. Frank Mikus
and Ed Ostrowski.
1983 29 Years Ago
All pre-school to sixth grade chil-
dren were invited to dress in cos-
tume and join the Sixth Annual
Greater Pittston Halloween Parade
sponsored by the Jaycees.
Local area mayors, fire companies,
ambulance crews, antique cars, Santa
Claus and a double-decker bus were
scheduled to participate. Hundreds of
children were expected to attend.
Trinity Episcopal Church of West
Pittston celebrated the 100th anni-
versary of its founding.
Committee members planning the
celebration were Grace Williams,
Mr. and Mrs. John Yates, Paul
Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Jones, Margaret Myers, John Wil-
liams Jr. and Sr., Rebekah Mal-
kames, Anna Mariani, Mary Lou
Millar, Elizabeth Kuschel, Marjorie
Green, Mrs. Joseph Rugletic, Mrs.
Kenneth Melberger, Mrs. Andrew
Patrick, Mrs. Charles Schalles,
Naomi and Alma Myers.
The first organized meeting of the
parish was held at the William Allen
residence on July 2, 1883.
The first members to serve on the
Vestry were James McCabe, R.D.
Lacoe, John Howell, W.B. Culver,
T.E. Grier, William Allen and A.G.
Mason.
These men arranged the purchase
of the land on which the church
now stands.

Answer
The hours-long blocking of railroad
crossings in Duryea was a main top-
ic of conversation among residents.
Repeatedly, Erie Lackawanna engi-
neers parked trains towing excessive
amounts of cars covering several
crossings and preventing residents
access to and from Coxton Road,
Stephenson Street, Mary Street and
Hill Street. Borough officials com-
plained to the Public Utilities Com-
mission but requests for help went
unanswered.
One engineer was fined $35 for
the inconvenience, but many felt the
fine too weak of a threat after one
such incident backed traffic from
Main Street Duryea into Pittston
City.
One need not be a chamber to be
haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Friends of Rocco J. Limongel-
li wanted him to exit the world
the way he lived in it with sheer
class. So his funeral Monday
morning became a procession of
classic antique automobiles.
Limongelli, 74, of West Pitt-
ston, whodiedThursday, Oct. 18,
2012, at Penn State Hershey
Medical Center, Hershey, was an
aficionado of classic cars. His
formal obituary included the fol-
lowing: He had an innate passion
for collecting antique and classic
automobiles, and you could find
him along with his wife, Anita,
at numerous car shows all along
the East Coast.
Friends gathered in their clas-
sic cars early Monday morning
at the Stefanelli Funeral Home
Inc., 721S. Main St., Taylor, and
processed in a motorcade to Our
Lady of Mount Carmel Church,
of St. Joseph Marello Parish, 237
William Street, Pittston, for a
Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30
a.m. Limongelli was a lifelong
member of the parish.

A
n old adage in journalism says
good stories are all the things
newspaper reporters talk about
and then never write about.
The implication is that many times we
fail to see the stories right under our
noses.
This came tomindlast weekas we at the
Dispatch staff discussed the re-naming of
the Pittston post office in memory of
Pennsylvania State Trooper Joshua Miller
who was killed in the line of duty, rescu-
ing a young boy from his own father who
had kidnapped himin 2009. (See the pho-
to on page one and story which begins on
page 3.)
As we reviewed the photographs of the
re-naming ceremony we talked about the
amazing young woman prominent in
many of them: Trooper Millers widow,
Angela Miller.
We, as do many, know her as Angie.
Andwe at the Dispatchdofeel we know
her.
We first met Angie Miller when we
named her husband the Greater Pittston
Person of the Year for 2009.
Her wounds were still freshat the recep-
tion in early 2010 at which the posthu-
mous honor was bestowed, but she con-
ducted herself with a quiet dignity that
touched the hearts of all attending the
event.
She spoke with eloquence and elegance
and we could not help but be impressed.
As we watched all of this, we kept
thinking: and she is so young.
We still think of howyoung Angie is as
she is asked over and over to step to a mi-
crophone at events such as Wednesdays
in Pittston.
It cannot be easy for her, but she never
shies away fromwhat she sees as her duty
to her late husband.
And always, there is the same dignity,
the same class we first witnessed nearly
three years ago.
This young momwas dealt a very diffi-
cult hand in life, but never does she talk of
her own problems, of being left to raise
three daughters on her own.
Rather, Angie talks of her husband,
what a wonderful father he was, what a
wonderful husband, what a wonderful
man.
Well, today, we finally are saying to all
what weve been saying so often in the
Dispatch office, and that is this:
What a wonderful woman Angela Mill-
er is.
She is a pillar of strength and courage
and a role model for us all.
We admire you, Angie.
Angie
Infanticide is the murdering of babies. It is grotesque and be-
yondanyremote acceptable humanbehavior. Yet howmanypeo-
ple know President Obama was accused of supporting infanti-
cide when he was a member of the Illinois state legislature.
While an Illinois legislator, Barack Obama supported infanti-
cide by voting against legislation that would protect babies born
frombotchedabortions. Obama deniedthat this was the case and
the liberal mainstream media, enamored by the prospect of a
black President, essentially went along and provided cover for
the would be president.
In a well researched article entitled Barack Obama Admits He
Supported Infanticide, Redstate editor Erick Erickson, provided
a persuasive case that despite his denials, Obama in fact support-
ed something as horrible as infanticide when he opposed state
legislation requiring doctors to provide medical care for a child
born from botched abortions.
A vote for Obama on November 6 is a vote for infanticide.
Insteadvote for Pro-Life Romney/RyanonNovember 6andhelp
to support the protection of human life.

Editor, readers and fellow voters: You are about to vote in the
most important election in your lifetime and in the history of our
country. Please read on. Our country is in deep trouble and going
downhill fast. Just some of the problems are: the economy, jobs,
national debt, healthcare, crime, drugs, taxes and more. Realize
this: All of the above are put there to divert our attention fromthe
real problems, which are non-negotiable.
First Abortion: Let me stop all the What ifs right here. Life
begins at conception. This is a no-brainer. It is non-negotiable.
When the sperm and egg meet, God (you remember God)
breathes life into it and a human being is born. Any stopping of
this life, at any time, by any means is killing and that is a mortal
sin, read the fifth commandment: Thou shall not kill.
In World War II Hitler killed 6 million Jews and Poles. Sound
familiar? The Russians took over in 1945 and killed nine to fif-
teen million humans. Why didnt we stop it? In World War II, 42
million people were killed. That is a lot of people. That number
dear reader is how many abortions have been performed, no,
committed since Roe vs. Wade in the United States alone. Our
president has given and allowed to be given hundreds of millions
of dollars of our money to a national organization so they can
help women get rid of a problem. This same president ends
most of his speeches with God bless America! God asks: You
want me to do what? Youre killing my kids! Abortion kills
3,600 babies each day in the United States. Think of this when
you vote. Mother Theresa asks, Who will speak for the little
ones?
Same SexMarriage: Godthought somuchof marriage that He
made it into a Sacrament. It is the union of one (repeat one) man
and one (repeat one) woman. This union is blessed and by ex-
pressing their love for each other, a child or children are born.
Second: Religious Freedom: 69 percent of Americans believe
that the first Amendment says: Separation of Church and
State. You may be surprised to learn that these words do not
appear in the First Amendment or anywhere else in the Constitu-
tion. What the First Amendment actually does say is this: Con-
gress shall make no lawrespecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom
Says voters must consider the real issues facing America

Withthe electionpeekingaroundthe corner, lets
play pretend.
Im going to imagine myself as a presidential
candidate of my own little world. Lets make me
an Empress! Of a country called Heckslavia.
If Im elected to be Empress of my own little
world, here are my rather ridiculous, yet perfectly
relevant in my own head, campaign promises:
Well Lets just get right to my Achilles heel,
shall we?
If I were in charge, Id make it protocol for every
first-time bully offender to get thrown into The
Bully Penitentiary.
For howlong? As longas it takes themtoman-up
and become a better human being. Thats right-
jail time for bullies.
Well see howmany of these bottom-feeders can
hack it. Theyll be forced to attend mandatory sen-
sitivity classes and be hypnotized in order to erad-
icate every demeaning and negative word from
their vocabulary.
And while Im at it, Id throw that moron Ann
Coulter into a cell, as well.
Next, lets implement something crazy, like the
same pay for a female employee as a male in the
same position. This means, ladies, that if youre an
accountant, youll make the exact hourly rate as
your lazy, less efficient male counterpart .
Also, working mothers should get a few extra
bucks thrown in, just for being well a work-
ing mother. God knows they dont get any extra
stimulus at home for their 80 hours work weeks, so
its about time this segment of the population gets
some extra love.
No one will be granted a certificate to get preg-
nant without first passing a parent test. The fact
that anyone, and I do mean anyone, can have a baby
and then spend the next 18 years potentially ruining
that life, is mind-blowing.
Also, this will prevent any accidents.
Heres a little secret: there really is no such thing
as an accidental pregnancy. Really. Everyone can
prevent it. Everyone knows how. No one should
have a child, accidentally or otherwise until they
pass the damn test. And no cheating.
There needs to be a cold, hard line drawn in the
sand over the red-hot button topic of nepotism. I
promise to name school board members who are
truly there in order to do the right thing for some-
one other than themselves or their offspring, or
cousin, or brother, or niece, or dog walker or baby-
sitter.
I promise to have teaching candidates inter-
viewed by teachers, administrators, students and
parents only. We may get a teacher or two who de-
serves a job just because they will be a phenomenal
educator. I know thats crazy talk. But remem-
ber, this is my pretend platformso you have to pre-
tend listen.
I promise I will find a way to take the fat and
calories out of really good chocolate. I will find a
way to make it nutritious and fiber-rich and still
make me happy. If they can put a man on the damn
moon they should be able to accomplish this.
Someone call Gertrude. Stat.
A persons body belongs to them. Not the Em-
press, the government, Congress or Walmart. Ev-
eryone can dictate what happens in and around
their own anatomy and no one else is allowed. Not
even your mother. If youre over 18, that is.
It shall be a lawthat when a Notre Dame football
game is on, all the idiot husbands in Heckslavia
must watch the game in a padded, soundproof
room with no beer. If they have to hit something,
they can hit each other and not my couch, pillows
or newTV. He totally knows who Imtalking about
First Husband.
Everyone deserves a helping hand. However, I
really believe that too many people are looking to
finesse their way through life on someone elses
dime and that crap wont fly with me.
We need to better monitor the situation of assist-
ance. All Im saying is if its too easy to obtain
thenits beingmanipulatedintoassistingthe wrong
people.
Ive been laid off and Ive been laid pretty low
but I know that Im able bodied and sort-of able-
minded, therefore, I should never be considered for
long-term, food and employment assistance. Un-
less, of course, I fall off my throne and really get
hurt.
I say that anyone who has fought the war on can-
cer should never have to deal with another insur-
ance carrier as long as they shall live. With co-in-
surance, deductibles and co-pays, you will lose
your bloodymind. The out-of-pocket expenses add
up to several mortgage payments and a box of Rai-
sinettes. We need to give our cancer stricken
friends a little break.
Hey! Maybe take a million or two off the top of
every stupid NFL players bankroll and make a
contribution toward a national cancer fund. Or my
TJ Maxx bill.
I will pass a law that states any woman over 50
should not, under any circumstances or alcoholic-
glazed thinking, ever wear the following items:
skinny jeans that are just too skinny, shorts that are
too nasty-short, tube tops, neck tattoos, a gold
tooth, suspenders, stir-up pants, anything showing
a belly that hasnt been flat since1978 and fake fin-
gernails longer than a Cheeto. Youll thank me
someday.
Also, in my kingdom, everyone has to be kind.
Even if theres a full moon and its that time of the
month. You will not be allowed to use any deroga-
tory words in order to make yourself feel superior
and your target inferior.
My minions will not kick a fellow minion when
they are down. We will always hold each other up.
Paying it forward will be as commonplace as buy-
ing a lottery ticket. In the Land of Heckslavia, life
will be a dream, sweetheart.

Teaching your children how to peel and chop and pop foods not
only improves their health, but gives theman extra skill that will take
them into adulthood. Keeping kids in the kitchen is a great way to
teach kids healthy eating while having fun.
First, preplanning is a must. First find an easy to make recipe that
youare comfortable with. Its always is a goodidea totryit out first, at
least in your mind.
Next make sure that you have all the ingredients. The worst thing is
to need to stop and run out to the store to buy the missing ingredient.
October is National Popcorn Month. Popcorn is a natural whole
grain snack.
It contains fiber and is lowin calories -- only 31calories in one cup
when popped without added fat.
USDArecommends getting at least half of your grains fromwhole
grains each day. One serving of whole grains equals three cups of
popcorn. So if you are striving for 6 servings of grains a day, 3 should
be from a whole grain source. Eating popcorn is a great way to in-
crease your intake of whole grains and your daily fiber intake. Some
youth have never seen popcorn pop, except from a microwaveable
popping bag. If you dont have a hot air popper, you can use an older
cooking pan; however, I wouldnt suggest this with really young chil-
dren. If might be a good idea to invest in an air popper.
Popcorn itself can be a great mediumto mix in high calories snack
foods, hence, reduce the overall calories. Here is an example, pop-
corn s mores.
When compared with the calories of the traditional snack, smores,
popcorn s mores are a lot less.
Belowis aneasytomake recipe- a great place tobegininvitingkids
into the kitchen. Follow these steps in the recipe once the popcorn is
made. If you feel the kids are too young for working with the stove
top, just toss popcorn with the marshmallows, mini graham cookies
and chocolate chips.
Popcorn S mores
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
10 cups freshly popped popcorn
1 package (10 1/2 oz. miniature marshmallows)
2 cups mini graham cookies
1 cup chocolate chips
Combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in mediumsaucepan.
Cook over high heat for 5 minutes; remove fromheat and stir in bak-
ing soda.
Combine popcorn and marshmallows in large bowl. Pour sugar
mixture over popcorn to coat. Gently stir in graham cookies and
chocolate chips.
Spread mixture evenly into non fat cooking sprayed 15 x 10 inch
pan. Let cool completely. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight con-
tainer.

YOUR OPI NI ON
State Rep. Phyllis Mundy has
no problem grandstanding when
it comes to easy no lose issues
like helping the poor, sick and el-
derlyandkeepingour air andwa-
ter clean. Supporting these is-
sues requires no political cour-
age at all.
When it comes to eliminating
school property taxes (HB
1776), and ending the unsustain-
able guaranteed pension for state
employees (HB 418, for exam-
ple), she is useless.
Getting rid of the school prop-
erty tax and the overly generous
pension will do more to help the
poor andelderlythananytaxre-
duction scheme any politician
cancome upwith. Propertyown-
ers and those with real jobs in the
private sector had better wake up
and vote her out. Her positions
defending her friends in govern-
ment unions, including teacher
unions make her more suited to
representing them, not the public
at large.
George R. Race
Exeter
Say Mundy fails to tackle real problems
of speech, or the press; or the
right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the
Government for a redress of
grievances. The First Amend-
ment gives citizens the Freedom
to worship God without govern-
ment interference. It assures that
the Government will not estab-
lish a state religion. That people
are free to speak their minds
without the government arrest-
ing them.
What will happen if HHS
Health and Human Services be-
comes a law? If you work in a
medical facility, a nurse, a doc-
tor, etc. and you are told to assist
in an abortion, and your faith and
conscience tells you it is a mortal
sin and you refuse, you could be
demoted or lose your job. If you
own or are part owner, on the
board, and pay for all or part of
your employees insurance and
an employee wants an abortion
you will be obliged to pay for
that abortion. If you refuse be-
cause it is against your faith or
conscience, you could be fined
$100 a day per employee for as
long as you refuse to comply.
You will soon be out of business.
The government will be able to
tell you more. A national foot-
ball player, after making a touch-
down, knelt down and blessed
himself was already told this is
not to be allowed in a public
sporting event. When the little
female athlete won gold at the
Olympics and was being inter-
viewed on the field, she thanked
God for giving her the strength
and a body to perform so well.
She was writtenupina sports co-
lumn that she should do this in
the privacyof her roomor church
and not on the sports field. Soon
a Catholic soupkitchenwill have
to ask those who come for a
meal: Are you Catholic? Your
social or service club will not be
able to say a blessing before the
lunch if it is in a public restau-
rant. Two females in our govern-
ment are ready to jump at the
chance to get God out of our
country and lives. This is how
the communists got prayer re-
moved from public schools.
Readers, doyourealize what is
happening? It will not be the
government of the people but the
people of the government. The
government will have organized
a State Church, which is against
the constitution.
So what do we do? We pray.
How can God help? On the next
clear night go out and look up at
the sky. He created everything
you see or cannot see. He created
it all. You doubt that He could fix
our economy, our national debt?
He gave us the solution. Seekye
first the Kingdomof God and all
else will be given to you. Read
this. Read what each candidate
stands for. Then Vote!!! Vote!!!

By
Dominick P.
Pannunzio, Esq.
Four states, Kansas, Montana, Idaho and
Utah, do not allow you to argue that you
were legally insane when you committed a
crime and, thus, arent responsible for you
actions. The insanity defense isnt allowed in
these states.
***
InIowa, a newlawallows doctors to supervise
up to fve physician assistants instead of two.
***
The Defense of Marriage Act, which defnes
marriage as a union between one man and
one woman, violates the U.S. Constitutions
principles of equal protection, a federal judge
in Connecticut ruled, holding that Section 3
of the act is discriminatory because it denies
federal benefts to same-sex couples who were
married in states where such unions are
legal. A federal appeals court in Boston made
a similar ruling in May, becoming the frst
appellate panel to have declared any part of
the law unconstitutional.
***
Illinois has become the third state to pass a
law prohibiting employers from requiring
employees or job applicants to provide access
to their social media accounts. Illinois follows
Maryland and Delaware, which passed
similar laws, relating to employers and
schools respectively.

Handmade gifts are not easyto
come by in the industrial world.
Most of the jewelry, purses, dec-
orations and even food come
from big corporations making
thousands of identical items a
day. So, finding a special or
unique gift is not easy.
However, handmade leather
purses, antique button bracelets,
hair bows, and candles are only a
few of the different gifts to be
found at the Holiday Craft and
Gift show on Saturday, Nov. 3
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ob-
lates of St. Joseph Seminary,
Route 315, Laflin.
Forty vendors will participate
in this fundraiser for St. Johns
P.M. Church in Avoca.
Judy and Michael Carter orga-
nize this fundraiser and both said
to have enjoyed the past five
years of shows. A few well
known vendors ones are the
Avon, Mary Kay and Thirty One
parties that will be participating.
I couldnt do it without him,
said Judy Carter referring to her
husband.
The craft show will be in the
gym of the seminary with free
admission and parking. All pro-
ceeds will be donated to the St
Johns Church. They struggle
like everyone else to keep their
doors open, she said referring to
the church. Local businesses
have donated. Community par-
ticipation truly adds to the suc-
cess of the show, Judy Carter
said.
Donations such as car washes,
gift cards or a trip to Atlantic
City all help raise money to keep
St Johns Church running. A
bake sale and other food vendors
will be ready to serve.
Everyone is welcome, Car-
ter said, both to the church and
the craft show.
Redners Warehouse in Pitt-
ston will display the gift baskets
today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Maybe its the weather change or that we are
nearing Halloween when so many symbols of this
bewitchingholidaybringSara Taylor backtomind.
It was at this time of year that we met I thought I
had given her closure but for some reason she is
very much on my mind.
I have a theory if something or someone is con-
suming your thoughts then action should be taken
to accomplish or resolve the situation.
My head tells me to find Sara.
I started at the place where we met several years
ago. It was at SlocumPark after completing a Hal-
loween story telling.
The night had an autumn chill, the sky shown
shades of grey dotted with black clouds and the full
orange moon was shining through the branches of
a tall oak tree. A huge bon fire was blazing and
children huddled under blankets listening as the
stories were told.
What a perfect night!
Driving home reviewing the events of the eve-
ning in my mind I took a wrong turn and drove and
drove when I realized I was not on the right road. I
continueddrivingonthis desertedroadlookingleft
and right and beginning to panic when I came to a
large house with the porch light glowing.
BravelyI knockedonthe front door several times
when the door opened.
Anticipating the owner of the house to appear at
the door there was no one.
Stepping over the threshold into the darkened
foyer a voice called out.
I am in my bedroom. The sweet voice beck-
oned, please come up.
I had a decision to make run or stay. If I ran I
would still be lost so I stayed and climbed the stairs
with reluctance.
With a pounding heart, I walked toward a dimly
lighted room and found a young woman with long
black hair and eyes of green that sparkled with ex-
citement sitting in a rocking chair beside a fire-
place. She was so happy to see me.
Mesmerized I entered the room and sat besides
her thinking how beautiful she is. Relating I was
lost and needed instructions to get home she as-
sured me not to worry. Joshua her husband would
help me.
We talked for what seemed just a short time but
as I looked at my watch an hour had passed.
I really needed to get home for by this time Chet
wouldbe concerned. Abadcoldhadpreventedhim
from accompanying me to the story time.
When I arrived at home Chet was sound asleep.
The next day I told him what had happened and I
wanted to go back and see Sara.
Looking at me strangely, his response was, Im
not going Ive already met too many of your
friends.
That did not deter me.
I went back and could not find the house. Inquir-
ing at the town hall I was told the Taylor home had
burned to the ground in the early 1900s with a
young woman and her husband inside.
For several years at this time of year Sara and I
would meet briefly.
In desperation one year she came to my home for
she had a secret to share. After that was settled we
put closure to our meetings.
I have not seen or heard from her since then.
Whyafter all this time have thoughts of Sara Tay-
lor come back to mind? Was there a reason?
I had to find out.
Knowing Chet would frown at the idea I thought
of my good friend Ann Marie Conroy. She is the
adventurous type and knew she would help me.
Ann Marie what are you doing Friday night? I
have a favor to ask.
I then told her that I wanted to go to Slocum
Park at about seven oclock.
We cant go at that time. Its getting dark and the
park will be closing. We might encounter a bear or
some other strange sights.
I couldnt believe what I was hearing.
A few reminders like walking into the Butler
Tunnel, climbing Campbells Ledge, diving into
Buttermilk Falls, climbing a lighthouse on a
stormy day and then taking a boat ride when not
even the captain wanted to venture in the breaker
waters fueled her sense of adventure.
When we arrived at the park there was darkness
surrounding us. The sky offered no reprieve for it
was the color of glimmering coal with a fewslivers
of silver. I drove to the spot where the story telling
was held and parked the car.
Nowwhat? askedmyfriend. Lets take a walk
in this area. Theres a bench we could sit on and
wait.
What is it that we are waiting for? she asked.
My friend Sara Taylor. If she is here she will
come.
Ann Marie was patient as we waited for at least
half of an hour. With flashlights in hand we
scanned the park looking for uninvited guests.
The sky was turning blacker, the temperature
was dropping, and the wind began to howl, owls
were hooting along with other strange noises.
Thats it! exclaimed Ann Marie. Im going
back to the car. Your friend if ever there was one is
not coming.
I had to agree with her.
Walking back to the car on the uneven ground
my foot slipped and I began to fall. Ahand gripped
my arm breaking my fall as a freezing chill went
through my body. For a second or two I could not
move.
Reachingthe car, I thankedAnnMarie for break-
ing my fall.
She looked at me strangely and announced that
was not her. I left you sitting on the bench
Quickly turning I saw Sara Taylor was waving
and somehow I knew that it was a final farewell.
Goodbye, Sara Taylor. All is well. Rest in
peace.

aving amassed an im-
pressive number of his
own hit songs and per-
forming on studio hits with ev-
eryone from Don Henley to
Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsbys
plateau may have occurred in
1987 when his first single,
The Way It Is, climbed the
charts and helped him receive
the trophy for Best New Artist
at the Grammy Awards.
While the accolades are cer-
tainly respectful to the career
Hornsby has had, there have
been many changes throughout
his last few decades, including
numerous hit songs (Mandolin
Rain, and Valley Road
amongst others), a brief stint in
the Grateful Dead, and a new
band, The Noisemakers, with
whom he has been enjoying
constant touring.
So, what can his longtime
fans expect when he comes to
the F.M. Kirby Center this Fri-
day for a solo piano tour?
Sure, the hits will be there,
but Hornsby has been dabbling
in some new music which
breaks away from the Adult
Top 40 classification that fol-
lowed him in the late 80s and
90s.
I consider myself to be real-
ly nice in playing four or five
of the hits every show, Horn-
sby said from his home in Wil-
liamsburg, Virginia.
Actually, the most popular
parts of my solo concerts are
songs that I perform from our
play, SCK BSTRD. I play two
or three of the songs from
itTheres a song sung by the
FedEx driver, the UPS driver,
and the postal delivery man
known as The Holy Trinity of
Home Delivery. We are The
Holy Trinity of Home Delivery/
Guided by divinity, exemplary,
proficiency/The three guys you
admire most/FedEx, Brown and
the Holy Post/Wives in our vi-
cinity/We make their legs go
quivery/We are the Holy Trinity
of Home Delivery.
Another exam-
ple?
Theres another
song that I sing as a
woman, he said.
A wife whose hus-
band drives her so
crazy, she fantasizes
about taking a base-
ball bat and whack-
ing his head off
called Wheres the
Bat. Its morbid
little fun to imagine
that head/Louisville
Sluggered and swept under the
bed. This is pretty entertaining
stuff. As I get older, I just like
to write funny stuff.
Aside from the SCK
BSTRD tracks, Hornsbys solo
shows allow the pianist more
room to explore his music,
which is something he enjoys
doing in the band format, but
finds different freedom in when
its just him on stage.
Musically, its very different
in some senses, and very simi-
lar in others, he said.
Our Noisemakers gig is ve-
ry free and we havent had a set
list in years. We take a lot of
requests, so theres always a lot
of spontaneity thats possible
there. Thats the same here (so-
lo). Whats different is, since
its just one person, I can really
be even freerI can go any-
where I want. I can slow it
down if I want to, I can change
keys or go into a different feel
on the spot. We do that a lot, as
much as any band I know does
it. Obviously, its easier to do
when, as The
Troggs would say,
theres just one
(expletive) mind on
it.
That mind has
been working me-
ticulously to adapt
his songs into a so-
lo performance
where he finds him-
self getting back to
his musical roots,
while adding differ-
ent arrangements to
some of the tracks.
Theres a lot of rootsy play-
ing in the solo shows, he said.
Like say Valley Road
played blues style. Thats more
elemental and traditional in its
approach than lots of things
well do with the band. Its
more singer/songwriter you can
sayIts all about projecting a
strong pulse, even when Im
solo piano. Its also very much
about two-handed independ-
ence, which is something Ive
been heavily involved with for
the last sixteen or seventeen
years. Basically having a strong
groove in the left hand, but be-
ing very free rhythmically in
the right hand. Its sort of like
splitting your brain.
As far as his Kirby Center
show, Hornsby feels his audi-
ence has come to appreciate
what can be done with only a
piano, and promises a night full
of hits, and more importantly,
just some all-around good mu-
sic.
Certain people come to my
concerts to hear a nostalgic
night out, and Im feeling pret-
ty kind about that, he said.
I even play a song I didnt
write but played on the record,
Bonnie Raitts I Cant Make
You Love Me, which has be-
come a classic nowOften
times the best moments of the
concert are either the SCK
BSTRD songs or some of the
songs that are sort of pianistic
tour-de-forces. I think its a ve-
ry literate audience that comes
to my concerts, and they really
recognize whats going on.
And the beat goes on

State Rep. Phyllis Mundy an-
nounced that West Pittston will
receive a $1.65 million low-in-
terest loan from the Pennsylva-
nia Infrastructure Investment
Authority to replace undersized
and misaligned sewer lines.
Sewage and storm water col-
lection lines are combined in the
community, and that has caused
rawsewage to back up into base-
ments.
It also has resulted in street
flooding.
The loan will help the borough
install 3,650 feet of 18-inch sew-
er pipe and 2,000 feet of storm
sewer pipe, manholes, inlets and
lateral pipes on Susquehanna
and York avenues and Park
Street.
It also will help the borough
flushandinspect the systemwith
a videocamera tocheckfor dam-
aged sewer lines.
Mundy added that the project
is expected to create 20 con-
struction jobs.
The 20-year loan, approved by
the Pennvest board of directors,
will carry an interest rate of 1
percent for the first five years,
and1.868 percent for the final 15
years.

Sports
Five first-half possessions,
five touchdowns. Wyoming Ar-
ea even got a sixth score without
the offense even touching the
ball.
Two weeks out from the Dis-
trict 2 playoffs, the Warriors are
rolling toward the top seed in
Class 2A, flattening Northwest
55-37 on Friday night.
Wyoming Area (7-2) clinched
at least one postseason home
game with the win and can finish
first in the district by beating ri-
val Pittston Area next week.
Northwest staged a spirited
rally in the fourth quarter, forc-
ing Wyoming Area to put its
starters back in on defense be-
fore the game was over. The
Rangers (5-4) were eliminated
from the district playoff race but
remain alive for an Eastern Con-
ference berth.
The Warriors only needed to
run 20 plays on offense to build a
41-7halftimelead, adding a de-
fensive score for good measure.
With star Nick OBrien on the
sideline for the first quarter,
Warriors coach Randy Spencer
turned to a long list of contrib-
utors that came through. Cody
Schmitz. JordanZezza. ZackLa-
Nunziata. Trent Grove. Jeff
Skursky. All but Grove (three
catches, 88 yards) found the end-
zone.
Weve got some outstanding
players, Spencer said.
They played well tonight,
they stepped up, they did what
we asked.
OBrien, one of the leagues
most dynamic players, spent the
first quarter on the sideline with
his helmet on before returning
for the opening play of the sec-
ond.
I really dont want to com-
ment on that because the issue
wasnt necessarily football-relat-
ed, Spencer said.
It was just some housekeep-
ing stuff we did. He took care of
his responsibilities and did a
great job.
Wyoming Area didnt miss a
beat with fellow senior Zezza
under center. Zezza threw a 58-
yardtouchdownpassand then
took an interception back all the
way for another 58-yard score to
open up an early 20-7 lead.
Schmitz had a hand in the
Warriors first four touchdowns,
hauling in that deep pass and
scoring two more on the ground.
He also got the initial deflection
on the pass that Zezza picked off.
OBrien (193 total yards) re-
turned to run and throw for a
touchdown before the half to
make it 41-7 at the break. He
added his third score of the game
to open the second half to trigger
the mercy rule.
Northwest, however, respon-
ded with three touchdowns
against the Warriors reserves be-
fore recovering an onside kick
and recording a fourth score
against Wyoming Areas rein-
serted starters.
Tony Politz and Austin Ma-
zonkey each had an 82-yard
touchdown run for Northwest.
Wyoming Areas Jeff Skursky
closed out the score-fest with a
53-yard run.
The last three weeks, weve
built some momentum, Spencer
said. And I think thats whats
(most) important for us.
The teams had almost 1,000
yards of offense, 514 for North-
west and 425 for WA.
Zezza was 2-3 passing for 86
yards, OBrien 3-5 for 95.
OBrien had 99 yards rushing on
10 carries, Schmitz 51 on 8 and
Skursky 1 carry for the 53 yard
Td.
Tight end Trent Grove caught
three for 88.
The Warriors are at PA Friday
and can clinch the top seed in the
D-2 2A playoffs with a win.

The Pittston Area girls soccer
season ended on Thursday with a
3-1 loss to the Lake Lehman La-
dy Knights at the Bucky Harris
Complex in Hughestown in a
first round District 2 2A playoff
game.
After a scoreless first half Al-
lie Barber put the Lady Patriots
in the lead with an unassisted
goal early in the second half at
43:12.
That lead held up for 11 min-
utes until Lehmans Shoshana
Mahoney tied it with a gaol asst-
ed by Julie Hutsko, who then
scored two goals in an eight-
minute period the second at
68:59.
LL outshot PA 14-10. Jordan
Cumbo had eight saves.
The first half was fairly even,
though PA did seem to get the
better of it , though they missed
some shots wide and high.
Lehman picked up its defense
after the Barber goal. Lehmans
a very well rounded team, PA
coach Nicole Tieso said. It was
a hard fought game on both
sides.
The Lady Patriots defeated
Lehman 6-3 in Lehman in the
season opener back on August
31.
The Lady Patriots finished
12-4. Lehman 12-6 advanced to
play Berwick on Monday.
Wyoming Area finished 8-7
and did not make the playoffs.

Even with their top two ball
carriers, Justin Wilk and Marc
Romanczuk, on the bench for
undisclosed reasons, the Patriots
offense was in gear on the open-
ing possession of Friday nights
40-7 loss to Wyoming Valley
West in Kingston.
Staring at their own 20 after a
touchback on the opening kick
off the Patriots went 80 yards on
eight plays totake a 7-0leadafter
the extra point by R.J. Haas 7:57
of the first quarter.
Quarterback James Emmett
completed passes of 3, 12 and 47
yards to Joe Starinsky, the last of
them for the Td on a perfect spi-
ral that hit Starinsky in stride at
the 15.
Hassan Maxwell, getting the
start at tailback, picked up six
yards on a first down run in the
drive.
Kyle Gattuso, running from
quarterback, also had a 6-yard
run.
Wideout Jordan Houseman
lined up in the backfield on a
play and had a 6-yard carry.
Valley West answered with a
56-yarddrive the Tdcomingona
37-yard pass from quarterback
Mike Baur to Josh Ortiz.
The point after was missedand
it was 7-6 PAwith 5:35 left in the

On the kick off PAs Kyle Gat-
tuso broke off a 60-yard return,
showing some nifty cuts, to the
Valley West 32.
Arun by Maxwell and an Em-
mett-to-Houseman completion
gave PAa first down and the Val-
leyWest 24, but a holdanda sack
put PA in a 3rd-and-38 back at
their own 47.
They picked up15 on a middle
screen to Maxwell, but had to
punt.
Starting on their own 15, Val-
ley West moved to the PA43, but
tackles by linebacker Sam Fal-
cone, whose defensive work was
lost in the final score, set up an
exchange of punts that jumped
started a 20-0 second quarter run
by Valley West.
The Valley West punt was
down inches from the goal line.
After three runs, PApunted from
deep in the endzone it was
downed at the PA 28.
From there, despite two tack-
les for loss by Falcone, Valley

gave it a shot to get back in the
game driving from their own 35
to the Valley West 30.

After pulling an upset of Dal-
las in overtime on Tuesday in
District 2 Class 2A field hockey
quarterfinal, the Warriors were
eliminated on Thursday by Divi-
sion 2 champs Crestwood (13-1),
6-0.
In the Dallas game the Lady
Warriors defeated a team that
had beat them five consecutive
times, including 4-0 on Septem-
ber 17 and had eliminated in the
playoffs the two previous sea-
sons.
Freshman Bree Bednarski
scored 80 seconds into overtime
to give the Warriors the 4-3 upset
of Dallas.
It feels so good, Warriors se-
nior Lexi Coolbaugh said.
Weve lost to them the last five
times we played them. We lost to
them last year in the playoffs.
And Serra (Degnan) got carded
last year. Its good to finally get
them back.
The Warriors, seeded fifth,
end the season 7-9. Fourth-seed-
ed Dallas sees its season end
with a 12-5 mark.
Wyoming Area overcame
plenty of obstacles on its way to
victory. The Warriors were
shorthanded for five minutes,
opening the door for two power-
play goals by Dallas to tie the
game at 3 with 18 minutes left.
They lost goalie Christina Gran-
teed to a right leg injury with 16
minutes remaining. And they
killed off a10-minute shorthand-
ed situation down the stretch.
Coolbaugh scored on the
games first shot, tucking a shot
stick-side on a play started by
Serra Degnan and played ahead
by Lindsay Carey. The lead last-
ed almost 14 minutes before Dal-
las Jenny Cave pounced on a re-
bound of a Katy Comitz shot to
tie the game.
Wyoming Area scored two
late goals in the first half. Acor-
ner combination play with Abby
Schwerdtman, Carey, Cool-
baugh and finally Bednarski set-
tingupDegnan. Twominutes lat-
er, Degnan drew goalie Lily
Amadio away from the cage be-
fore diving and punching the ball
across to Bednarski for a 3-1
lead.
After a yellow card, Dallas
Vanessa Parsons connected on a
spinning shot and Cave tipped a
free hit by Michelle Thompson
over Granteed to tie the game at
3.
And on the Mountaineers
next offensive possession, Gran-
teed was injured.
Into the goal stepped Cool-
baugh, the Warriors goalie for
the first six games of the season.
Without a warm-up, and having
left the game during the first half
when she was struck in the head
by a stick, Coolbaugh had four
saves, including one in overtime
ona Comitz tipof a Parsons shot.
As soon as Christina got hurt,
I knew I was going in, Cool-
baugh said. I knew I had to at-
tack the ball against them. I got
the best of both worlds today,
scoring a goal and playing goal.
Sally Deluca had a defensive
save for Wyoming Area.
PA1 Elk Lake 0
The Lady Patriots wrapped up
their season with a 13-3 record
by beating Elk Lake in OT on
Monday in Dimick.
Nicole Chaiko scored the
game-winner un assisted. Lea
Garibaldi got the shout out with
seven saves.

BILL TARUTIS FOR THE DISPATCH
In August as fall sports prac-
tice season approached, Pittston
Area senior athlete Liz Mikitish
had a decision to make, one shes
been thinking about for a couple
of years: soccer or field hockey?
For the first three years of her
high school career shed done
both. Field hockey was a fall
sport and soccer was a spring
sport.
Beginning with this school
year the PIAAmandated all con-
ferences go to fall girls soccer.
Liz knew it was coming, the
PIAA set the deadline two years
ago, but that didnt make it any
easier.
I didnt make up my mind un-
til the last second, she said. I
had soccer in my life as long as I
can remember and I had field
hockey in my life, too. It was
hard.
She chose field hockey.
Her decisionwas influencedin
part by her sister Katrina, a ju-
nior on the field hockey team. It
gave Liz one last season to play
hockey with Katrina. I like
playing with her, Liz said. On
the field we make things hap-
pen.
But Katrina wasnt the main
reason she chose field hockey.
We had a banner for soccer, and
I wanted to help get one for field
hockey.
Not that she doesnt feel the
same way about soccer, but she
said of hockey, I love the team
and the coaches.
The banner she mentioned
was for winning a division
championship in soccer last
spring.
But despite a 13-3 record, Liz
and the Lady Patriots did not get
a field hockey banner this year.
Northwest won the division
with a 15-1 record.
Worse, PA did not get in the
playoffs and Liz is disappointed
about that.
That was a bummer. We won
13 out of 16 games and a team
with two wins made then play-
offs. It doesnt seem fair.

Runner Steve Prefontaine put
it best: I run to see who has the
most guts. This was no more
evident than at the PIAADistrict
II Championships on Wednes-
day at Elk Lake High School, in
Dimock.
After it rained nearly two inch-
es on Tuesday followed by over-
cast skies on Wednesday, the
runners were in for a real treat
the cross country equivalent of a
Tough Mudder event.
Adding to the brutal running
conditions, the girls AA race
was run after the AAA race.
Pittston Areas Tara Johnson
(22:13) and Catherine Lombardo
(22:21) placed ninth and tenth in
the event. Both girls are headed
to the state championships.
Wyoming Areas Emily Wolf-
gang was the first to complete
the course for the Warriors with
a time of 28:51, followed by Ste-
phanie Schultz (33:28) and
Amanda Ostrowski (33:38).
It wasnt a walk in the park for
the boys, either. The first race
was the AAA boys. Pittston Ar-
eas Mike Havrilla was the first
to finish for the Patriot squad
with a time of 20:19.
He said that as he was ap-
proaching the finish line, I
heard people yelling states and I
sprinted as hard as I could.
Havrilla described the course
as muddy, slick, and very chal-
lenging.
He was followed by Dmitri
Shea (21:35) and Patrick Cadden
(22:05) for the Patriots.
The PA boys and girls team
both placed seventh in their re-
spectable divisions.
As for the Wyoming Area
boys, Eric Filipiak finished first
for the Warriors with a time of
21:15 in the boys AA race. Fin-
ishing behind him were Nick
Hmorek (21:47) and Zachary
Gibbons (22:25). The WA boys
placed tenth in the event.
Dallas Regan Rome took the
overall victory in the girls AA
race with a time of 20:17, while
Holy Redeemer took the team
win.
Hazletons Jacob Fetterman
led the majority of the boys
AAA race and won by 40 sec-
onds over teammate Tyler Pecor-
ra.
In the AA race, Lake Leh-
mans Kieran Sutton and Dallas
Dominic DeLuca ran neck and
neck for most of it, before Sutton
pulledawaytoa19-secondvicto-
ry over DeLuca.
Hazleton took the team victo-
ry in the AAA division, while
Scranton Prep did the same for
AA. Next up is the Cross Coun-
try State Championships in Her-
shey on November 3.

From all of these experience
she has put together a program
that exposes athletes to high lev-

factors that canhelpmake a play-
er the best they can be: mental
training, nutrition guidance,
strength and conditioning train-
ing, community service projects,
and recruiting guidance.
One of Laurens main focuses
is to get players between 5 - 12
years old to get a stick in their
hands. She sawfirst hand in Hol-
land the benefit of starting the
sport at a young age. It becomes
much more natural for the play-

PA football boosters tailgate party Friday
Old Forge scored on half of its
first 14 offensive plays Friday
night while blowing out visiting
Holy Cross, 55-8, in a Lacka-
wanna Football Conference Di-
vision 3 game.
The contest matched one of
the LFCs two unbeaten teams
and one of its two winless teams.
After a sluggish first fewmin-
utes for the Blue Devils, it
looked just like what would be
expected from such a matchup.
Old Forge, which is also pre-
paring for the District 2 Class A
playoffs, usedthe wintoclinchat
least a share of the Division 3
championship it won outright
last season.
The Blue Devils can keep the
title to themselves with a win
Saturday at Susquehanna, or if
Lackawanna Trail loses to Holy
Cross.
Holy Cross (0-4 in the division
and 0-9 overall) picked a first
down on the games second play.
The Crusaders went for fourth-
and-one to try to extend the
drive, but Jorden Sekol stopped
Connor Callejas for a two-yard
loss.
An interception by Thomas
Ware of Holy Cross stopped the
first Old Forge drive, but the
Blue Devils could not be held
back for long.
The big problem playing
games like this is you have noth-
ing to gain and sometimes you
get complacent, Old Forge
coach Mike Schuback said.
Brian Tomasetti, on the way to
his eighth 100-yard plus rushing
effort of the season, ran for two
of his three touchdowns to give
Old Forge a 14-0 lead after one
quarter.
Brenden Wahl threw for two
touchdowns and ran for another
in the second quarter when the
Blue Devils built a 40-8 halftime
lead.
Anthony Piccolini and Shane
Schuback pulled in the touch-
down passes and Tomasetti ran
for another score.
One offensive play into the
second half, Old Forge put the
game in the Mercy Rule by
building the lead to 47-8 on a 35-
yard Brandon Yescavage touch-
down.
The Blue Devils closed the
scoring in the fourth quarter on a
27-yard run touchdown run by
Tyler Salerno and a two-point
conversion by Matthew Trotta.
The Blue Devils played with-
out starting tackle Ryan Paulish
for the second straight game be-
cause of an injury.
Sekol moved from fullback to
alternate with sophomore Corey
Souryavong at Paulishs tackle
position. Shane Schuback
moved from tight end to alterna-
teat fullback with Bobby Rinal-
di, another sophomore.
Our focus now is to stay
healthy and be ready to play in
November, said coach Schu-
back, who is concerned about
disruptions this week from the
anticipated weather issues and
heading to Susquehanna where
the field has a history of not
holding up well in wet condi-
tions.

It all began 45 years ago on
Thanksgiving Day in 1967. Now
with 45 games in the books
Wyoming Area leads the series
by one 23-22.
Thats amazing enough, but
consider the point differential.
Its crazy close. WA scored 792
in the 45 games. Pittston Area
scored only 32 points fewer with
758.
Over 45 games thats less than
a point per game.
Here are some facts from the
previous 45 games.
* Most Points in a game by one
team: WA 42 in 1992, 93 and
1997
* Most points in one game
both teams: 70, PA 40 WA 30,
1976
* Fewest points in one game
both teams: 7, WA 7 PA 0, 1981
* Largest Margin of Victory:
41, PA 41 WA 0, 1973
* Lowest margin of victory: 1
point, 6 times, 1968 WA 7 PA 6,
1977 WA 8 PA 7, 1985, PA 14
WA 13, 1986 PA 7 WA 6, 1995
WA14PA13, 2000, PA14WA13
* Shutouts: Eight, three by PA:
21-0, 1970; 41-0, 1972; 32-0
1994. Five by WA: 23-0 1978,
7-0, 1981, 38-0 1990, 21-0 1991,
15-0 2001.
The first 11games were sched-
uled for Thanksgiving. Ten were
played on Thanksgiving. One,
1971, was postponed by snow
and played on Saturday. The
2000 and 2001 games were
played in September when PA
and WA were in the short-lived
monster NEPFCwhich wouldnt
accommodate a week-10 game.
The teams have actually
played 47 games. They met in
playoff championship games in
2001 and 2003. In 2001 PA won
the Eastern Conference title
game. In 2003 WA won the Dis-
trict 2 3A game.
Heres a quick view of the 45
games. The records are for the
full seasons including playoffs.
1. Thanksgiving Day, 1967
PA (10-0-1) 28 WA (7-3) 7 The
Patriots four horsemen Charlie
Turco, Charlie Graziano, Eddie
Booth, and Eddie Brennan each
scored a TD in a 28-7 PA win in
the in the inaugural game. Bill
Anzalone scored the only WA
TD. The legendary 0-0 Eastern
Conference title game with Shi-
kelamy followed for PA.
2. Thanksgiving Day, 1968
WA (8-3) 7 PA (4-6) 6 PAs Ed-
die Brennan put on a show with
224 all-purpose yards, including
an 85-yard kick off return, but
the PAT was missed. Later Nick
Marianaccis TDand Lorenzinis
point won it 7-6 for WA.
3. Thanksgiving Day, 1969
WA (9-2) 39 PA (5-4-1) 8 Get-
ting his first start on the big Tur-
key Day stage before 9,000
didnt bother WA QB Fred Mar-
ianacci. He was 6-6 passing for
126 yards and a TD to Jack Cas-
setori and rushed for a TD in the
Warriors 39-8 win.
4. Thanksgiving Day, 1970
PA(7-3-1) 21WA(9-1) 0 Injured
tailback throws down crutches
and rips off cast at pep rally, goes
out and leads team to huge upset
win over unbeaten traditional ri-
val. AHollywood script? No, the
truth about the legendary "Rex
Revesz game." Emotion reigned
as Revesz, who broke an ankle
earlyinthe year, returnedonTur-
key Day with 206 yards rushing
and two TDs on 23 carriers as PA
stunned the 9-0 Warriors who
had already clinched the WVC
title and were averaging 28
points a game, 21-0.
5. November 27, 1971 WA
(11-1) 32 PA (5-5) 23 Big and
quick, the Warriors offense line
with Penn State recruit Ken
Sickler, paved way for 195 yards
rushing and three TDs for Mick-
ey Calabrese on a series record
40 carries in a 32-23 WA win.
Some kid named Jimmy Cefalo
had 84 yards and a TD for PA.
The game was played Saturday
due to a Thanksgiving Day
snowstorm. Wyoming Area beat
Coughlin 8-6 the next week in a
playoff for the WVC title.
6. Thanksgiving Day, 1972
PA(9-1) 14 WA(5-5) 8 That Ce-
falo Kid, now a junior, rushed
102 yards and a TDin a 14-8 win
before the biggest crowd ever,

8. Thanksgiving Day, 1974
PA (6-3-1) 7 WA (2-6-2) 5 It

lowed a combined 147 yards to-
tal offense and 7-26 passing with
four interceptions. WAscoredon

ing 10 touchdowns before PA
won their fifth straight in the se-
ries 40-30. WAalmost pulled off
a comeback for the ages. They
trailed 34-6 with 7:31 left, but
scored three TDs and three 2-
pointers after that led by sopho-
more QB Jim Oschal. PA tail-
back Homer LoPresto had 107

monsky had a 49-yard TD run.
13. November 3, 1979 PA
(8-3) 20 WA (8-3) 15 Trading
long touchdowns drives in the
mud, the teams put on a show in
what many considered the most
entertaining game in the series to
that point. On their first posses-
sion the Patriots drove for a TD
on a fourth down run by QB To-
ny Burns. WA tied it on an Ed
Wruble TDrun. PAtook the sec-
ond half kick off and went 66
yards with Mike Sobeski, the
Falcone winner, going 48 for the
score. WA went 50-yards and
scored on a 4th-and-goal, 18-
yard pass from Bill Prebola to
Lou Sebastian. Gary Dolhan ran
it in for two and a 15-14 lead. In
the fourth PA ate 65 yards and
most of the clock and Tom No-

winner in with 2:00 left. But
wait, WA drove from its own 34
to the PA13, but ran out of time.
14. November 14, 1980 WA
(12-0) 14 PA (5-6) 10 PA out

anco 28-yard field goal. But the
second TD by Falcone winner
Gary Dolhan, 75 yards on 20
carries, gave WA the win and an
undefeated regular season. They
went on to beat Pottsville for the
Eastern Conference title and a
perfect 12-0 record.
15. November 14, 1981 WA
(8-3) 7 PA (8-3) 0 Falcone win-
ner Mark Sickler scored all the
points on a TD pass from Stan
Abromavage and a PAT in a 7-0
WAwin. SamFalcone rushedfor

16. November 13, 1982 WA
(9-2) 31 PA (9-2) 22 WA QB Ja-
mie Kutzer passed for 104 yards
and a TD, rushed for a Td and
had three picks to win the Fal-
cone. WA lead 14-0 halfway
throughthe first, but it wasnt de-
cided until a 24-yard field goal
by Sickler made it a two-score
game with1:24 to go. John Cola-
russo scored rushing TDs for
WA and Scott Greback caught a
TD pass. Herbert and Marancik
caught TD passes from Deluca
and Falcone ran for one for PA.
17. November 19, 1983 PA

his interception late in the fourth
that set upthe winningscore than
for his 67 yards passing and 22
yards rushing. Dave Burns
scored both PA TDs on short
runs and WAs Eric Speece went
over 1000 for the season with a
54-yard TD run.
18. November 18, 1984 WA

Malsky made it easy on the Fal-
cone voters completing 10-
for-14 for 165 yards and four
TDs, three to Ken Kopetchny.
KenScalpi rana kickoff backfor
PA.
19. November 15, 1985 PA
(8-3) 14 WA (8-3)13 WAs Ken
Kopetchny did his best Lynn
Swan imitation catching 10 pas-
ses for 115 yards from Phil Rus-
so, but PAs Falcone winner Ken
Scalpi rushed for 139 yards and
scored the winner on a 4th-and-
goal drawplay. In the most excit-
ing finish to date WA drove 94
yards to the PA2, mostly on pas-
ses to Kopetchny, but ran out of
timeouts and couldnt stop the
clock to get off another play.
20. November 15, 1986 PA
(2-9) 7 WA(7-4) 6 Upset special
as PA came in 1-9 but beat 7-3
WA. Four interceptions did the
trick. One was a pick-sixRodney
Pocceschi for the winning TD.
PA QB Tom Musto won the Fal-
cone.
21. November 14, 1987 PA
(3-7) 21 WA (4-6) 7 The "Pride

teams had losing records. PAQB
and Falcone winner J.R. Ri-
chards threw two TD passes to
Tony Giardina and Phil Russo
and rushed for one.
22. November 12, 1988 WA
(7-3-1) 19 PA (3-7-1)12 WA
broke a 3-year PA win streak as
Falcone winner Greg Dolhan
passed for 189 yards including a
game-winning 11-yard TD pass
to Keith Irace for the win in the
fourth. A fake punt play kept the
drive alive.
23. November 11, 1989 PA
(5-5) 6 WA (8-3) 2 Charlie Ka-
balka hit a grand slam. Oops, no,
he had15 tackles and became the
first defensive Falcone winner.
Sean Richards scored the only
TD on a 7-yard run for PA.
24. November 12, 1990 WA
(8-3) 38 PA (5-6) 0 It was a 500-
yard Manic Monday explosion
for WA in a game postponed by
rain. WA QB John Nocito won
the Falcone with 81 yards rush-
ing and TDpasses to Marty Pepe
and Bill Wierbowski. Mark Dy-
mond kicked a 26-yard field
goal.
25. November 9, 1991 WA
(6-5) 21 PA (5-6) 0 This started
the tailgating tradition at PA. It
was 0-0 after three, but in the
fourth Joe Pizano caught a TD
pass from Tom Campenni, and
his brother, and Falcone winner
Jim Pizano, ran one in and Bill
Ross fell on a fumble in the end-
zone.
26. November 14, 1992 WA
(8-5) 42 PA (1-10) 8 The under-
dog Pats trailed just 7-0 at the
half, but WA got three TDs by
Falcone winner Jamie Kudrako
in the second. Jim Pizano had
158 of the WAs 348 rushing
yards and a TD.
27. November 13, 1993 WA

21 minutes. Jim Pizano won his
second Falcone with 166 yards
rushing and three TDs, one of 66
yards. Two weeks later WA lost
the D-2 title game to Dallas
28. November 5, 1994 PA (7-
3-1) 32 WA (1-10) 0 A flip-flop
as PAcame in playoff bound and
WA moribund. It showed as Fal-
cone winner Mike Owens rushed
for 120 yards and a TD and QB
Tom Maxwell threw TD passes
toJasonKlushandJoe Wysokin-
ski. PAlost to Coughlin in a Dis-
trict 2 game a week later.
29. November 4, 1995 WA
(10-2)14PA(2-8)13PAjust mis-
sed the upset on a frosty day as
Ben Kopka ran in a two-point
conversion for WAafter a 6-yard
TD run by Falcone winner, QB
Tony Scatena. Don Hindmarsh

and 64 yards finished off on TDs
runs by Falcone winner Kopka.
Fred Marianacci kicked the win-

31. November 1, 1997 WA
(11-1) 42 PA (4-8) 14 What were

half? Riding the back of bruising
fullback A.J. Oliveri who scored
all the points with two TDs and a
2-pointer. WA didnt pull ahead
until a Jeff Kostick TD run with
9:00 left, but then scored three
more, one on Rich Musinskis

blocked and won the Falcone. PA
QB Chris Barnic snuck for a TD
and threwa TDpass to Jeff Mon-
tagna in the OT. WA scored on
two gadgets: a hook-and-ladder

yards rushing by Falcone winner
PAs Tony Avvisato, including

Salvo. McDonnell rushed for
170 yards on 32 carries and

GOOD LUCK WARRIORS & PATRIOTS!
Two players, one from each
team, have chances to be a two-
time winner of the 35th Carmel-
lo Falcone Memorial Most Valu-
able Player Trophy for Fridays
game.
WAs Nick OBrien won the
trophy in 2010 as a sophomore.
PAs Anthony Haughton won it
last year as a junior.
The only two-time winner was
WAs Jim Pizano who won in
1991 and 1993. OBrien and Pi-
zano are connected already.
OBrien broke Pizanos school
rushing record this season and
the pair met on the field last
week.
The trophy was inaugurated in
1978 and won by WAs Charlie
McDermott who is on the WA
staff. Hes one of four staffers
who are Falcone winners. WA
assistant Rich Musinski won in
98. PA assistants Gennaro Zan-
gardi and Jim Norris won in
2004 and 2000.
Haughton and Norris are con-
nected, too. They are two of only
four interior linemen to have
won a Falcone, PAs Charlie Ka-
balka 89 and WAs Nick Bellan-
co 2007 being the others.

Falcone MVP Trophy XXXV
By JACK SMILES
jsmiles@psdispatch.com
PAs all-time record from1966
through 2011, not counting this
seasons games, is 252-232-6 for
a .514 winning percentage. WA
record is 341-171-4 for a .664
winning percentage.
If thats all the info you had
and you knew the teams played
45 regular season games, you
might expect Wyoming Area to
have a big edge in those games.
But when playing each other,
WA and PA are only one game
apart, with WA leading 23-22.
The point differential is 792-758
or less than a point per game av-
erage.
Why? Well, its a rivalry so, as
they say, you can throw out the
records.
And second, consistency in
coaching.
In the past 20 seasons from
1992 to 2011 WA has had two
coaches, Paul Marranca and
Randy Spencer. And Spencer
was Marrancas lead assistant (in
Marrancas later years Marranca
called himco-head coach) for 15
seasons.
The men are so similar they
even sound alike. So the transi-
tion there was smooth and in the
past 20 years Wyoming Area is
151-82.
In those same 20 years from
1992-2011, PA has had seven
head coaches and the transitions
havent always been smooth.
PAs record in those 20 years is
91-124.
Third, Wyoming Area had
lighter schedules in years when
they have been a 2A team and
that was an issue last season and
could be an issue this season.
Last year PA went into the
game 2-7 playing 3A and 4A
teams, while WA went in 6-2
playing 2A teams. PA won 24-
21. WA can shoulda, woulda,
coulda that game to death. Yeah,
they could have won, but they
didnt.
This season the schedules are
pretty much the same and the re-
cords will be pretty much the
same.
So, same result?
No prediction, but lets face it
going into the game having
played Abington, Scranton, Dal-
las, Berwick and Valley West
versus having played Hanover,
Holy Redeemer and Nanticoke
is different.
Im pretty sure PA could have
scored 40 points against those
WA opponents.
So the teams are more evenly
matched than the records indi-
cate, but that doesnt mean PA
will win again. For one thing
they arent likely to win by a
field goal again. Kicking,
though its been getting better
lately, is a weakness.
A plus for PA some of the key
players from last seasons win
Joe Starinsky, Marc Romanc-
zuk, Justin Wilk and Anthony
Haughton are back.
The X-factor is WAs Nick
OBrien. If he breaks big plays,
which PA prevented last season,
WA likely wins. One way to pre-
vent that is to tackle him, no easy
task, a better way is how Lake
Lehman did it. Run the ball and
eat the clock and keep OBrien
on defense.
But with a few exceptions PA
hasnt been running the ball this
year as well as last. Againnopre-
diction except for a close one.
X-factor: Nick OBrien
