The St. Mary’s Convent, a fxture of
in Avoca since 1923 and home to hun-
dreds of sisters from the Immaculate
Heart of Mary order, has a date with the
wrecking ball on Monday.
The Rev. Phillip Sladicka, pastor of
the newly formed Our Lady of the Apos-
tles Parish, said the building hasn’t seen
any major use in about eight years
“It’s very sad to see it go,” Sladicka
said as he walked through the building
as it was being prepped for demolition
on Thursday. All of the furniture, win-
dows, fxtures and molding have been
removed fromthe brick and wood build-
ing.
Sladicka, who previously served as
assistant pastor at St. Mary’s in the late
1970s into the early 1980s, remembers
the beloved nuns such the school’s prin-
cipal Sister Laurentia Mayan, Sister
Themla Gutz, Sister Maria Goretti, Sis-
ter Moira and the music teacher, Sister
Lucy.
“(Sister Lucy) was a wonderful piano
player,” he said.
Sister Jane Mary Duke, pastoral assis-
tant at the church, said the architecture
of the building is stunning, including the
statue of St. Joseph built into the outside
of the second foor.
She never stayed in the convent, but
she knows many of the aging sisters
who have. “They have very fond memo-
ries of this convent and of the children

The Avoca Neighborhood Crime
Watch, Avoca Lions Club and An-
cient Order of Hibernians of Avoca
will sponsor a spring clean up for
Main Street from 9 a.m. to noon on
Saturday, April 27. PennDOT will
supply all materials needed.
Anyone interested in helping with
the project is asked to call Rich at
457-5633, Jim at 457-8446 or Gene
at 457-0776.
The next meeting of the Avoca
Neighborhood Watch will be held
at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16 at
the town hall. Guest speaker will be
former Pittston mayor Mike Lom-
bardo, a member of the Pittston City
Redevelopment Authority. With15
years experience, Lombardo will
speak on revitalization of a com-
munity.
A Pittston man was arrested last
week on charges he sexually as-
saulted a 16-year-old girl.
Charles Miller, 58, of George
Street, was charged with two
counts of indecent assault.
Miller was arraigned before
Senior Magisterial District Judge
Andrew Barilla Jr. and released on
$100,000 unsecured bail.
According to Pittston Police Det.
Sgt. Neil P. Murphy:
The victim, a 16-year-old girl,
and her mother told police the girl
was having problems at home and
had been staying with a friend.
On March 29, the friend’s father,
identifed as Charles Miller, ap-
proached the victim after she came
out of the shower and told her he
needed to talk to her. The victim
was covered in a towel.
After she put on clothes, she met
Miller in his bedroom when he
grabbed her right arm and escorted
her to the bed. The girl felt uncom-
fortable and went under the covers.
Miller went to the girl’s side of
the bed, fondled her, undressed her
and sexually assaulted her, police
said. The girl said she was afraid to
scream because “he looked kind of
scary during it.” According to the
report, Miller told her she couldn’t
talk to anyone about what hap-
pened because it would be “danger-
ous to do so.”
A preliminary hearing is sched-
uled for 1:45 p.m. on April 10.

Those hoping to fll the magiste-
rial district judge seat left vacant

8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, at
Pittston Area High School, said At-
torney Christine E. McLaughlin, a
League member.
The frst portion will be held in
the auditorium where candidates
will be seated on stage and given
an opportunity to introduce them-
selves. The second portion will be

they taught.”
The building, on the corner of
Hawthorne and Spring streets, re-
ceived a major renovation in 1996.
A computer lab was added for the
students at the nearby St. Mary’s
School and the sisters ran a daycare
out of the convent.
A paved church parking lot is
planned for the lot, with room for
30 to 50 cars.
“We really need a parking lot.
Parking really became an issue,”
Sladicka said. “During Masses,
cars are parked all over the neigh-
borhood.”
He said the narrow roadways
make for a dangerous situation if
emergency vehicles need to pass
while parishioners are at Mass. “If
a fretruck came down on a Sun-
day, they wouldn’t be able to get
through.”
Also, churchgoers park in a near-
by vacant lot, but that lot has the
potential of being developed.
The four-story building has more
than 20 small bedrooms, a loft, sev-
eral living and community rooms, a
chapel, a sun porch, a kitchen and
dining area.
The nearby school, separated
from the convent by a small play-
ground, is still in use. It is used for
parish functions, religious educa-
tion, community events and scout
meetings. Part of it is also rented
out to Agora Cyber School.
St. Mary’s on Hawthorne Street
and St. Peter and Paul Church on
Main Street were combined in 2011
under the name of Queen of the
Apostles Parish.
The Congregation of the Sisters,
Servants of the Immaculate Heart
of Mary, also serve at Marywood
University, Friends of the Poor and
St. Joseph Center in Scranton. The
order follows the spirit and purpose
of St. Alphonsus.
Stell Enterprises is completing
the demolition which should be
complete in about a week. Most of
the items in the convent have been
sold off or donated or saved. Some
items, such as statues, have been
saved and are kept in the school.
“My heard is broken,” Sladicka
said. “It was a good building that
housed a lot of good Sisters.”

Pocket full of pride
It was like a big smile with a
missing front tooth.
That’s how former Pittston City
mayor Michael Lombardo described
the vacant lot on South Main Street
before construction began on a new
mini park.
Downtown Pittston’s new pocket
park is taking shape and should
be fnished by early May, leaving
downtown workers and visitors with
a new reason to smile.
The park, nestled between Napoli
Pizza and the Dental Building, will
feature tables and bench seating for
20 people, a
waterfall fx-
ture with an art
sculpture be-
hind it, a small
stage, 13 pear
trees and a 25-
foot by 8-foot
c o mmu n i t y
herb and fow-
er garden, said
Main Street
Manager Rose
Randazzo.
The property, now owned by the
city’s redevelopment authority, con-
sists of the 40-foot by 40-foot park
and a small area behind it that will
be used for private parking spaces to
be rented to a neighboring business.
The $60,000 project was paid for
through federal funding from the
Streetscaping Project, state casino
funding and donations. The furni-
ture was paid for by a $5,000 dona-
tion from Landmark Bank and the
trees were paid for by a $1,000 do-
nation from state Rep. Mike Carroll.
The furniture was installed on
April 2 and the fountain is set up
and ready for artwork to be installed
behind it. Planting of herbs and
fowers will begin after the weather
breaks. The trees have been planted
and, after several years, will start
to provide a canopy over the park,
Randazzo said.
The park has seating for 20 peo-
ple, which includes two tables with
four seats, two tables with three
seats and one extra space on each
for wheelchairs, one bench that seats
three and three stools.
Hadley Construction was award-
ed the bid to build the park last year.
After the 2010 demolition of the
former Pittston Billiard, structural
damage was noticed at the adjoin-
ing building at 30 S. Main St., com-
monly known as the Wayne’s World
building. The store closed a short
time later.
The city bought the building and,
at the time, believed the building
could be restored. A more thor-
ough assessment after the purchase
revealed it would be far more cost-
effective to demolish the building.
The question,
Lombardo said,
was how does
the city repur-
pose a lot in the
middle of the
block?
That’s when
the pocket park
idea surfaced.
L o m b a r d o
envisions the
park becoming
a lunch spot for
customers from
local restaurants or even brown bag-
gers. It could also be a place to just
relax.
“It refects a thoughtful progres-
sion on Main Street,” Lombardo
said. “It really adds to the downtown
atmosphere.”
Smaller music and art programs
will be scheduled for the park, Ran-
dazzo said.
The fragrant herb garden, Ran-
dazzo hopes, will be utilized by ev-
eryone, including local restaurants,
and will add a pleasant smell to the
park. She imagines herbs such as
mint, basil and oregano.
Maria Livrone of Art on Main,
fomerly Arts Seen Gallery, is de-
signing the stainless steel and glass
sculpture called “Tree of Life.” Ran-
dazzo hopes the park will be ready
for the frst Second Friday event in
Downtown Pittston on May 10.
“It’s a great thing for the down-
town,” Randazzo said. “It will pro-
vide a place for people to meet and
relax.”

The Ben Franklin Kindergarten
Center in Dupont has been educating
Greater Pittston youngsters for the
better part of 50 years.
Its doors may soon close, if a con-
solidation proposal in Pittston Area
gains traction. The district has already
sent notifcation to the state it is con-
sidering closure.
The Pittston Area School Board
will hold a public hearing, as required
by law, at 6:30 p.m on April 10 at the
Primary Center on Rock Street in
Hughestown to hear from parents and
district residents. The school could
close 90 days after the public hearing.
Superintendent Michael Garzella
Garzella said an engineer from Borton
Lawson engineering and architectural
frm will be at the meeting to present
solid fgured on how much is needed
to keep the school open.
“It’s in the millions, though,” Gar-
zella said. “I don’t think the district
can afford that at this time.”
The district spent $34,000 in heat-
ing oil last year and $21,000 to power
the lights. In addition to the cost sav-
ings, he said there are numerous ben-
efts to moving the kindergarten stu-
dents to the Primary Center, including
safety, parking and less transition.
He said the kindergarten students
are currently dropped off at the curb
near traffc, but the Primary Center
is out of traffc and there’s plenty of
room for students to move around
once they get off the buses. Also, there
a substantially more parking for staff,
parents and visitors at the Primary
Center. And Garzella said if kinder-
garten is moved to the Primary Center,
small children would have one less
school to transfer to.
He said repairs are needed, includ-
ing a new furnace, roof, carpeting and
electrical work.
“We’ve been fortunate to get
through all these winters on that fur-
nace,” he said, noting that it was in-
stalled in 1962.
“We need to ask ourselves if it’s
wise to invest in an older building
when there’s room in the other, newer
buildings,” he said. “The Primary
Pittston Area’s Kindergarten Center may close

Getting holy and healthy
Outreach Committee of Sacred Heart Church in Dupont to hold fifth annual health fair
Healing body and soul is what
you can do at the Fifth Annual
Health Fair sponsored by Out-
reach Committee of the Sacred
Heart of Jesus Church, Dupont.
The event will be held after the
weekend Masses on April 20 and
22 at the parish hall on Lackawa-
nna Avenue.
The fair will open after the 4
p.m. Mass service on Saturday
and be open from 8 a.m. to noon
on Sunday.
The Sacred Heart Outreach
Committee’s primary purpose is
to maintain a special connection
with parish members who are
homebound or in a nursing home
by sending them weekly church
bulletins. They also send greeting
cards on special occasions and
gifts for Christmas and Easter as
a way for the homebound to stay
in touch with their parish com-
munity.

The committee wanted to expand
its “reach” to the general church
congregation. Parish member Ma-
rie Murphy, a registered dietitian,
offered her help.
Murphy not only volunteered
her professional services but was
also willing to contact other health
professionals to share their expert
services. The committee presented
its idea to the membership.
The idea took.
“It’s a balance of enriching your
spirit at Mass and nourishing your
body at the Health Fair all in the
same place,” said the Rev Joseph
Verespy, pastor of Sacred Heart.
Over 20 health care professionals
will offer expert advice to a healthy
way of living.
Some of the services offered
will be blood pressure and glucose
screening, hearing and vision tests
and better ways to an improved
lifestyle. Also on hand will be a
speech therapist, registered dieti-
tians, pharmacists, chiropractors,
nurses and dentists.
Taped exercise routines for all
ages will run during the fair. Tasty
and healthy food samples will be
served throughout the day as the
Outreach Committee has made a
homemade assortment of healthy
foods and beverages.
Joe Kobi of Flexible Mobility
has attended the Health Fair since
its inception. His past displays at
the Health Fair have given church
members opportunities to try power
chairs, scooters and other personal
care equipment.
Family physician Dr. Martin Mo-
ran, another regular at the Health
Fair, will offer an array of medical
services. He recently purchased the
Sacred Heart Church convent and
moved his family practice to its
new home next to the church.
The Pittston Area Leo’s Club,
along with its mascot Leonardo,
will collect gently-used prescrip-
tion glasses for the District Lions
Club. There will be a Kid’s Corner
with coloring books and games and
chances will be available for a well-
ness theme basket.
The event is free of charge.

Inheritance Taxes
A tax is levied against assets
owned by a person after their
death. This tax is commonly
known as an inheritance tax.
All assets passing to parents,
children, or grandchildren are
taxed at the rate of 4.5%, or
$4.50 on every $100 inherited.
Assets passing to brothers,
sisters, nieces, and nephews are
taxed at the rate of 12%. Assets
passing to any others, except
charities, are taxed at 15%.
Taxes are not paid on assets
passing from one spouse to
another.
The federal government levies
an inheritance tax on any assets
passing to those other than a
spouse, if the decedent’s estate
has a value of $5 million or more.
The tax rate in this instance
ranges from 38% to 55%.
Call me today, if you have any
questions regarding inheritance
taxes.
FACTS OF
LAW
Brought to you as a paid public service by
the Law Offices of Dominick P. Pannunzio,
294 Main Street, Dupont, 655-5541
By
Dominick P.
Pannunzio, Esq.
The St. Louis-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the
Eight Circuit has declined to recognize a right to
smoke and held that the city of Clayton, MO had
a rational basis to restrict smoking in parks –
namely, to preserve and protect the health, safety
and welfare of the public.
***
A new law in North Carolina provides that
students can face criminal punishment if they
post ANY statement online about a school
employee.
***
A federal judge ruled that police violated the
rights of more than 100 people who were arrested
or searched while attending an art gallery event
in 2008. Masked police with weapons drawn
stormed the Contemporary Art Institute of
Detroit after reporting the smell of marijuana and
the illegal consumption of alcohol. More than
40 cars were seized and held until patrons paid
$900 plus towing and storage fees. The American
Civil Liberties Union fled a lawsuit on behalf of
nine patrons, among 130 people who they say
were illegally searched and arrested, even when
no alcohol was found and not all patrons knew
of any illegal activity going on. The judge’s ruling
paves the way for another trial to determine a
fnancial reward for the patrons, if a settlement is
not reached between the city and ACLU.
***
Companies are banned from requiring customers
to provide Social Security account numbers in
most circumstances, thanks to a new NewYork
State law.
Check to clinic honors Dr. Lewis Druffner Jr.
Dr. Lewis Druffner Jr , the 2012 Joseph Saporito
Lifetime of Service Award winner, was honored
at an event sponsored by the Sunday Dispatch in
March.
During the event, over $700 was collected in
his honor for the Care and Concern Free Health
Clinic to which he donates many hours tending to
those who cannot afford health insurance.
Druffner was honored along with Charles Adon-
izio, the 2012 Greater Pittston Person of the Year.
Shown above during the
check presentation are,
from left, Gloria Adon-
izio Blandina, director of
the Care and Conern Free
Health Clinic; Dr. Druffner
and Judy Minsavage, Sun-
day Dipatch office manager.

One of
the many
classroom
air con-
ditioning
units at the
Pittston
Area Kin-
dergarten
Center is
in need of
repair.
Center is our newest, most modern
building.”
The Kindergarten Center’s com-
bined gym/cafeteria causes prob-
lems daily because lunch ends at
1:05 p.m and gym class starts sev-
eral minutes later.
Also, if the carpet is pulled up
and the tiles underneath are ripped
out, there could be an asbestos is-
sue, Garzella said.
A plan in the works would relo-
cated the Kindergartners to the Pri-
mary Center in Hughestown, which
would then become the home to
kindergarten and frst grade.
The second graders would move
to the Intermediate Center, which
would then house second, third
and fourth grades. The ffth grad-
ers would move to the adjoining
Middle School, which would then
handle ffth, sixth, seventh and
eighth grade. Ninth through twelfth
grades would still be housed at the
High School in Yatesville.
The Middle School has the most
extra space and could handle an ex-
tra grade, Garzella said.
The building was built in 1960
and an additional was put on in
1991, the year it changed from an
elementary school to the Kinder-
garten Center. The addition includ-
ed a nurses offce, cafeteria/gym,
and an art/music room. Anew roof
was installed and AC units were
put in each classroom.
Garzella doesn’t see a lot of op-
position because it is no longer a
“neighborhood school.”
“Children from all over the dis-
trict go there,” he said. “I don’t
think we’ll have the same problem
Wyoming Area had in trying to
close the Harding school.”
Garzella said he has the support
of the school board.
“I think everyone’s on the same
page.”
About 250 students attend the
Kindergarten Center.
NUTRI TI ON
Plant a salad, enjoy
it all summer long
Spring is here - well maybe not quite yetin Northeast PA. This is still a
great time to get ready to grow those wonderful spring and summer har-
vested vegetables.
Pennsylvania is top in the production of much produce enjoyed by other
states. The leading vegetable grown in Pennsylvania is mushrooms, fol-
lowed by pumpkins.
Your backyard can become part of the agriculture system by growing
common vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and squash.
According to “Penn State’s publication, SowingAnnual Seeds,” you can
use containers such as fower ports, seed trays, fats or pans, peat pots, peat
pellets and planting blocks for germinating seeds.
Of these container options, you can only place peat
pots, pellets and planting blocks directly in the ground
when it is time for transplanting. Seed fats are more
practical for sowing many seeds of one variety. It is
simpler to have one container for each variety of seed
so that all seeds in the container germinate at the same
time.
Wood and plastic are the most common materials
used to make fats. Whatever container you choose, add enough seed start-
ing mix to fll it ¾ of the way full.
Then level the mix, thoroughly soak it with water and tap the container
on a surface to frm the soil.
Next, lightly press tiny furrows into the mix. The proper depth and dis-
tance between seeds depends on the seed size. To be sure, check cultural
suggestions on the back of most seed packets.
After sowing, use a water bottle with fne mist to moisten the seed start-
ing mix without disturbing seeds.
Seeds can then get moisture without washing out of the mix. Moisten the
seed-starting mix in a larger container by standing the container in a pan of
water until moisture rises to dampen the surface. Once the seeds germinate,
it is best to set them in a pan of water and water from the bottom up.
Successful germination requires warm temperatures. Generally, the op-
timum temperature for germination is between 65 degrees and 75 degrees.
Germination requires partial shade, but most seedlings need bright light for
strong growth.
Most seedlings prefer natural light, so the best place to set the fat of
seedlings is on a bench near the window so children can watch the seed-
lings grow. Remember to turn the plants clockwise as they bend towards
the window light.
Most annual seeds take one or two weeks to germinate. During this time,
two seed leaves grow from each seed.
These are not true leaves, but part of the sprouting seed that appears
more swollen and rounded than mature leaves. Afew days later, true leaves
will develop above the seed leaves.
At this time, you can thin the seedlings. If you handle the stems with care
and keep the roots intact, you can transplant the seedlings.
Once the seeds are planted, you may begin to think about ways to include
these vegetables in your meals.
Children get interested in new foods if they are involved in meal plan-
ning. To boost their interest in salads, plant a salad. Start by purchasing the
seeds and potting mix along with planting trays.
Plant a salad
1 pkg. tomato seeds
1 pkg. basil seeds
1 pkg. spinach seeds
Ingredients needed: potting mix, four seedling trays and one dozen peat
pods for each type of seedlings. Read the package directions and watch
them grow.

orably discharged Marines and
FMF (Fleet Marine Force) corps-
men are eligible.
Every fourth Saturday of the
month, the detachment serves
coffee and donuts at the assisted
living facility at the Wilkes-Barre
VAHospital.
Among other activities are pa-
rades, a scholarship program for
Marine Corps League members’
children and grandchildren; a
foundation program to help Ma-
rines who fell on hard times; help
for wounded Marines; a youth ft-
ness program and fund raisers.

Mart.
Tickets are $1 each or six for
$5 for a chance to win $5,000.

czyk said, “but we could do a
lot more if we had some young
blood.”
To join call Solarczyk at 655-
6424 or email her at softball-
catch23@gmail.com.

OBITUARIES
Stephen E. Sokach, 71, of West
Pittston, rose into the Kingdom of
God with Jesus on Easter Sunday,
March 31st, 2013, surrounded by
his loving family.
Born in Exeter, he was the son
of the late John and Anna (Klem)
Sokach. He was a 1959 gradu-
ate of Exeter High School and
Wilkes-Barre Business College.
He was employed for 52 years by
Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. as
a multi-award-winning sales repre-
sentative.
He spent his life serving others
at work, in his church and his com-
munity.
He held multiple offces over
40 years of volunteer service with
the Exeter Lions Club and was the
Guiding Lion for the establishment
of the West Pittston Lions Club.
He was a founding member of
the Wyoming Area Booster Club,
served as President of Wyoming
Area School Board, served as an
Exeter Borough auxiliary police of-
fcer, vice-chair of Exeter Borough
Civil Defense, and was auditor of
West Pittston Borough.
An avid golfer, Steve was also a
member of Fox Hill Country Club.
A man of great faith, Steve
served the parish community of
Corpus Christi, frst as a lector, then
as a Eucharistic Minister for over
three decades.
Caring for others was central in
Steve’s life and he would regularly
deliver communion to shut-ins. A
member of the Holy Name Society,
he chaired many different activities
for the annual Fall Bazaar at Im-
maculate Conception Church. But
more than that, he instilled a great
faith in his children and precious
grandchildren.
He lost his father at age 19, and
helped his mother raise his sisters,
when he met the Love of his Life,
Judith (Scripkunas) Sokach.
They mar-
ried in 1964 and
would have cel-
ebrated their 49th
wedding anniver-
sary on May 2nd.
The love and
devotion they have for each other
serves as a model for all couples
who know them. Together, they
started with nothing, but gave ev-
erything to their two children, Ste-
phen John and Mary Elizabeth.
As patriach of the family, Steve
instilled a great respect for tradi-
tion, a faith-based life and selfess
love and devotion. Not a day passed
that he didn’t express his love to all
those close to him, especially his
wife, Judy.
His son, Stephen John Sokach,
married Jeriann (Katany) Sokach
and gave him three beautiful grand-
daughters, Carly Elizabeth, Stepha-
nie Ann, and Alexis Ann.
His daughter, Mary Elizabeth So-
kach, married Donnie Tristan Min-
nick and gave him three handsome
grandsons, Tristan Jude, Stephen
Andrew and Blaise Alexander.
Beloved “Papa” spent his days as
counselor, playmate, taxi driver and
biggest fan for all of his six grand-
children.
Their lives have been enriched
beyond measure because of his
constant presence and dedication to
their well-being and success.
His spirit will live on forever and
ever in the hearts of his grandchil-
dren.
In addition to his parents, he
was preceded in death by his sister,
Joan, and his brother, Jack.
He is survived by his devoted
wife, Judy.
Together for 48 years, they con-
quered the world together. There
was nothing they couldn’t accom-
plish.
They loved to spend Saturday
nights, date night, eating at at their
favorite restaurants. But the rest
of the week was devoted to their
children and grandchildren. Sun-
day was always “family day” and
always started at church. He was
proudest when he was surrounded
by his whole family.
His heart remains with Judy for-
ever.
He is also survived by his son,
Stephen John, wife Jeriann and
their children, Carly, Stephanie
and Alexis; daughter, Dr. Mary
Elizabeth, husband Donnie and
their children, Tristan, Stephen and
Blaise; sister Mary Ann Smutko;
and numerous nieces and nephews.
Services were Thursday, April
4, from the Howell-Lussi Funeral
Home with a Mass of Christian
Burial at 10 a.m. in Corpus Christi
Parish, Immaculate Conception
Church, 605 Luzerne Ave., West
Pittston. Interment was in Mount
Olivet Cemetery, West Wyoming.
Memorial contributions may be
made to the Exeter Lions Club or
the West Pittston Library.

PEEKING INTO
THE PAST
April snowfall
surprises area
57 years ago
Question:
In 1976, what histori-
cal and controversial
Supreme Court case
had local connections?
1956 - 57 years ago
Snowflakes as large
as ping pong balls were reportedly
falling in the Pittston area during a
surprise April storm. Tom Puscavage
was among many Pittston motorists
who found themselves unprepared for
the snowfall. The US Weather Bureau
at the Avoca Airport issued a report,
noting an unseasonably cold beginning
to the month of April. According to
the website www.weatherspark.com in
1956, the longest cold spell was from
March 15 to April 4, constituting 21
consecutive days with colder than aver-
age temperatures. The month of May
had the largest fraction of cooler than
average days with 87% of days with
lower than average low temperatures.
Gordon “Gordie” Williams, of
West Pittston was named most valu-
able player in the Fifth Annual Wyo-
ming Valley’s Dream Tournament. The
tournament featured all star players
from the Valley, North, Wyoming Val-
ley and Catholic Basketball leagues.
Williams was third in scoring in the
game, but “caught the eye of the
judges” with his rebounding abili-
ties. He received a watch for his MVP
title. Williams was also a star athlete
in football and a perennial favorite in
track and field, garnering a trophy for a
record-producing mile run.
Members of the Jenkins Township
American Legion Post 938 almost
had their sponsored Easter Egg Hunt
ruined for the second time. In 1955,
the evening before the scheduled
hunt, someone unsuccessfully tried to
enter the building to steal prizes for
the event. In 1956, the Legionnaires
decided to store the prizes at another
location just in case the would-be
thieves tried again. Try again they did,
this time successfully gaining access
to the building, but finding none of
the treasures that awaited the 400 plus
children who attended the following
day’s event.
1976 - 37 years ago
In a new effort to fall within the
guidelines of a favorable cost/benefit
rating in order to sway the Army Corps
of Engineers to consider flood protec-
tion for West Pittston, Council Presi-
dent Ray Crisci obtained the help of
U.S. Housing and Urban Development
Assistant Secretary David O. Melker.
Melker sent a letter to the Army Corp
recommending the federal government
“undertake those measures neces-
sary to meet state and federal flood
protection standards and to permit the
locality to carry out planned redevelop-
ment in the area.” United States Sena-
tor Hugh Scott, in a letter to Crisci,
felt the redevelopment efforts in West
Pittston would enable the borough to
be reconsidered for a favorable rating,
making flood protection “cost benefi-
cial.”
In conjunction with National Library
Week, the Duryea Library celebrated
its first year anniversary. Mary Louise
Branas, librarian, and assistants Hel-
en Kramer and Kathy Bousa planned
a film festival for the children featuring
“The Astronaut” and “The Fur Coat
Club.” Both films released in the early
70s can still be found online.
Local teens were invited to attend a
fund-raising dance at the West Pittston
Armory sponsored by St. Rocco’s teen-
ers baseball team. Lee Marcino and
Gus Turonis planned the event and
arranged for the Buoys to provide the
music. The group consisted of local
musicians Bill Kelly, Fran Brozena,
Jerry Hludzik, Carl Siracuse and
Chris Hanlon. Bob Gryziec was the
original bass player when the band
recorded its hit single, “Timothy.”
The song reached the Billboard Top
40 chart on April 17, 1971, remained
there for eight weeks, peaking at #17,
according to The Billboard Book of
Top 40 Hits by Joel Whitburn.

They pay dues these days, too, though
more than the nickel a week they paid
in in the early ’40s; nickels they earned
picking vegetables at the Martinelli and
Cremard farms, coal from culm piles
and doing other chores as they could
find them. Somehow, they made time to
pick rocks and spread dirt to maintain a
decent ballfield in Gilmartin Park.
Dardes, 88, considered the founder
and leader, and Lucarella, 84, a founding
member, were two of those boys. They
were nicknamed “Streaky” and “Rene”
and some of their early teammates were
“Coongie” Traglia, “Acres” Di Buono,
“Smokey” LaFratte, “Shablo” Litzi and
“Buster” Concert. As other players
came along, they came with nicknames,
too, like “Deger” Degerolomo, “Buzzy”
Bosco, “Chi Chi” Galasso, “Rochester”
Traglia, “Potatoes” Potenza, “Nippy”
Nowakowski and “Ace” Brogna.
The Parsonage Street area had been a
hotbed of baseball even before the Red
Devils. There had been coal breaker,
Sunday School and neighborhood teams
in the area since the early 1900s. Hall
of Famer Bucky Harris got his start for
the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church Sunday
School team just a block up from Par-
sonage.

T
hey came of age in the late 1930s and early ’40s in Parsonage/Pana-
ma Street/Drummond Street area in Hughestown where, with some
of them not yet in their teens, they formed a neighborhood baseball
team, called it the Red Devils and played games against neighbor-
hood teams from the Junction, South Pittston and Fourth Ward.
• Today, the oldest of the surviving Red Devils are well into their 80s, the
youngest in their 70s. Eight of them — Nicholas Dardes, Rinaldo Lucarella,
Bernie Babonis, Bob Vitale, Mike Delconte, Mike Sabetta, Dr. Nicholas Rug-
giero and Joe Potenza - still hold the club together. They have monthly meet-
ings where they plan trips to ball games and military and historic sites and
Christmas and summer parties. Up until four years ago, they played an annual
Old Timers’ game.

Answer:
In 1954, Joe and Julia Quinlan,
a New Jersey couple, adopted a
baby girl born in the Scranton
area. By 1976, 22-year-old Karen
Ann Quinlan was the focus of an
historic decision before the Su-
preme Court and the subject of a
right-to-die case. Karen Ann, after
ingesting alcohol, diazepam and
dextropropoxyphene at a party, fell
into an irreversible coma, making it
necessary to place her on life sup-
port . On March 31, 1976, the New
Jersey Supreme Court rendered a
unanimous decision, appointing Joe
Quinlan as the personal guardian of
tKaren with the right to determine
her medical treatment, including
the right to discontinue all extraor-
dinary means of life support. After
winning the case and the respira-
tor was removed, Karen Ann lived
until 1985 when she passed on of
pneumonia at the age of 32. To read
more about the history of the case
and the good works of her parents
on behalf of the Karen Ann Quinlan
Memorial Foundation, log on to
www.karenannquinlanhospice.org.
What makes the month of April
special:
The Pony Express started on
April 3, 1860. It went from St
Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento,
California and took 10 days.
In April 1909, Robert Peary
reached the North Pole.
In 1865, Lee surrendered to
Grant.
The Titanic sank on April 15,
1912.
Shakespeare was reportedly born
on St George Day, April 23. He also
died on April 23, 1616. St. George
is the patron saint of England.
The Mutiny on the Bounty took
place in April 1789. Captain Bligh
and 18 seamen were set adrift in a
small boat. They eventually landed
on the island of Timor, after a jour-
ney of over 3,600 miles.
In 1914, a Parsonage area
team called the Pittston Crabs
played games against teams
representing town sections
like Maltby in Swoyersville
and Parsons and Lee Park in
Wilkes-Barre. That year, two
brothers from Parsonage were
arrested for shooting two men
following a dispute over a $100
bet on a game between the
Crabs and the Exeter Stars.
Lucarella can remember
watching his father pitch for
another Parsonage area team
in the mid-1930s. “I was 5 or
6 and I went to games with my
father, Louis Lucarella, when
he pitched for the Friendship
Club,” Lucarella said.
During World War II, while
Dardes and many of the Devils
served — including John Deb-
bieri, who was killed in action
— Corey Gagliardi kept the
Devils together by coaching a
team of younger boys.
After the war in 1946, the
Red Devils petitioned Luzerne
County Court for incorpora-
tion as an official non-profit
organization and on March
10, 1946 it was so ordered by
Judge Frank Pinola. Legit, the
club opened a clubhouse and
pool room on Parsonage Street
where members were adept
as raising money with dues,
raffles and dances as they were
at playing ball.
The Devils fielded teams in
the City League and won two
consecutive championships
in 1946 and ‘47. Within a few
years, they were fielding three
different teams, one each in
the City, Suburban and An-
thracite leagues, winning mul-
tiple titles in all of them and
earning the nickname “Club of
Champions.”
The Red Devils also en-
tered basketball teams in the
YMCA and Dupont Communi-
ty House leagues, and for one
season, fielded a football team.
The winning in the baseball
leagues was in no small part
thanks to Dardes, one of four
Devils to play minor league
baseball. A take-no-prisoners
competitor and a lay-down-
the-law manager, Dardes
once made the team’s catcher
walk from Duryea back to
Hughestown in full gear after
the catcher blew a game with
a bad throw.
The Red Devils lasted un-
til the early 1960s when the
club disbanded, the victim of
changing times and the grow-
ing popularity of softball. By
the end, over 100 men had
played for the Red Devils.
There’s a Red Devil wall
display at the Pittston Library
which includes the team’s
charter and plaques listing the
names of living and deceased
Red Devils. There are over 50
names on each plaque.
In 1994, the Red Devils
called for a grand reunion at
Convention Hall and over 40
members showed. Since then,
they have met regularly. In
2010, 13 Red Devils, many
life-long Yankee fans, were in-
troduced on the field at PNC
Park before a Scranton/Wil-
kes-Barre Yankees game. Lu-
carella, with Dardes standing
by, threw out the ceremonial
first pitch. During the game,
about 100 friends and family
joined the Devils for a party
in the right field pavilion.
Dr. Nicholas Ruggerio, cur-
rent Red Devil president and
one of four Devils to become
doctors, tells the story of how
the Red Devils always had the
best full uniforms and jack-
ets, much to the consterna-
tion of the Reverend Turco,
pastor of the Presbyterian
Church on Parsonage Street
who couldn’t abide the club’s
name, especially after he got
a look at their jerseys with a
devil’s head on the front and
jackets with a devil’s head on
the back.
“I remember,” Dr, Ruggerio
said, “the Reverend saying
‘Now, if one of you is hurt and
I kneel to pray over you, I’ll
see a devil facing me on your
back and then if they turn
you over, there’ll be a devil
on your front, too.’”
Four Red Devils, Rene Lucarella,
Streaky Dardes, Nippy Nowa-
kowski and Ace Brogna, played
professional baseball.
Lucarella played three seasons
in the minor leagues from 1949
to ‘51 for Red Sox and Oriole
affilates. With the Hammond,
Louisiana Berries in the Evan-
geline League in 1950 he batted
.289 with 30 doubles and 11 home
runs in 126 games.
Dardes also played three season
from 1949 to ‘51. He and Lucarel-
la were teammates at Hazlehurst
in the Georgia State League
for part of ’49. In 1950, Dardes
played 74 games for the Lumber-
ton, North Carolina Auctioneers
who won the championship of
the Tobacco State League
Nippy Nowakowski played three
seasons in the minors with Yan-
kee affiliates from 1958 to ‘60.
He got as high as class C with
Fargo-Morehead, North Dakota in
Northern League. In 1950, at age
20, he was 15-7 with a 3.55 ERA
with St. Petersburg in the Florida
League.
Al Brogna played with the
Wytheville, Virginia Twins in the
Appalachian League in 1961 when
he was 20. One of his teammates
was Tony Olivia, the 1964 Ameri-
can League Rookie of the Year.

nario to serve as a reference while going through the day and making their decisions.
The students also learned about credit, debt, investments, taxes and Social Security.
Paul McGarry, LawApplications teacher, said the experience was formative.
“We learned a lot and it will help me in my future,” said senior Kaitlynn Wolfram.
“It was a good, beneficial trip. It gave me a look at real-life scenarios and you see
howyou are going to make ends meet,” said senior Nick Dougal.
