Jody Brogna had the foor, his
baritone voice just as commanding
as it had been nearly 50 years ago
on the school yard or in the hall-
ways and classrooms of Pittston
High School.
“Remember back then how
there was a little neighborhood
store on just about every block?”
he asked as six or seven heads
nodded in agreement. “Well, my
little grandmother had one of those
stores right near our house.
“She was so cute,” Jody went
on. “She was always putting
something ‘on sale’ — you know,
knocking a few pennies off this
or that — so she could be like the
big stores. Well, one day we’re
eating lunch at school — you
remember how all the seniors used
to sit in the upstairs bleechers at
the gym? Well, the one guy says to
me, ‘Hey, Jody, will you tell your
grandmother to knock off the sale
on pickle loaf? My mother’s been
packing me nothing but pickle loaf
sandwiches for two weeks.’”
“‘Hey,’ I said back to him, ‘look
at this,” Jody went on, and as he
did he put his hands together as
if in prayer and then turned them
palms-up, as though opening an
imaginary book, or in this case,
sandwich. “‘See. Pickle loaf.
Where do you think my mom
shops?’”
We all could relate. And soon
we’re were discussing the last time
any of us had pickle loaf. “I used
to really like that stuff,” one fella
chimed in.
The scene was Arcaro’s and
Gennel’s Restaurant in Old Forge
last Saturday night and the occa-
sion was a get-together of some of
the members of the Pittston High
School graduating class of 1966,
the last graduating class before the
school merged with others to for-
mer the giant Pittston Area. I and
my wife, a year younger than these
folks, had been invited to attend
as special guests of ‘66 classmate
Buddy Maiorana and his wife,
the former Mary Volpe, one of
our classmates. Buddy and Mary
began dating in junior high and are
still together.
The Class of ‘66 marked not
only the end of Pittston High but
also the end of an era, a time when
classmates knew everyone by
name, knew their parents, knew
their siblings, and knew enough
about each other to poke fun one
moment, lend support the next,
and recognize when the time was
appropriate for either. Jody Brogna
led classmate Richie Giamusso
into another story that illustrates
the point. It took place in the same
bleechers where the senior boys
ate lunch.
Another of their classmates,
Rick O’Haire, would walk by
every day, Jody explained, reach
into Richie’s lunch bag, pull out
his sandwich, take a big bite out
of it and put in back. “Richie was
such a nice guy, he wouldn’t say a
word,” Jody said.
Then, one day, along came Rick
as usual but when he took his bite,
he spit it out immediately, cough-
ing and gaging as he ran off.
“Tell them what you did,
Richie?” Jody said.
“I put a frog from the biology
lab between two slices of bread,”
Richie said sheepishly.
That was the last time Rick
O’Haire reached in for a bite of
Richie’s sandwich.
I suppose you could call what
Rick was doing bullying, although
we didn’t use such a word back
then, and what Richie did how we
handled bullying in those days.
Nobody needed to get a principal
involved … or a lawyer.
“The thing is,” Jody Brogna
said, “we really did care about
each other, and seniors had no
problem hanging out with juniors
and juniors with sophomores. For
one thing, we all walked to school
together and talked the whole
way.”
“Today’s high school kids don’t
talk to each other and I think it’s
because they don’t congregate in a
school yard,” I pointed out. “They
get out of a bus or a car and go
right into school.”
“Yeah,” Jody said. “And we
used to get to school early so we
could hang out in the school yard.”
That’s where we learned how to
socialize, how to converse, how to
engage in the art of small talk. And
we’ve been doing it ever since.
When my class graduated, a year
after these guys, there were 367
students in the class. Many of us
had never met, and still have not to
this day. The sense of community
we enjoyed at a place like Pittston
High was gone forever.
Something that united all
Pittston High students for decades
was on display at last Saturday’s
gathering. It’s a sign that was
prominently displayed in the hall-
way of the school proclaiming the
school’s motto, the famous last line
of the poem Ulysses by Alfred,
Lord Tennyson:
To strive, to seek, to fnd, and
not to yield.
Every student who ever entered
the doors of Pittston High is
familiar with that motto. And there
are very few who did not take it to
heart and make it their life’s motto.
Interestingly, those words are
spoken in a signifcant scene in the
latest James Bond movie Skyfall
by actress Judi Dench in the role of
“M,” the head of British intelli-
gence. When I heard her say them
in the movie, chills ran up and
down my arms. I got those same
chills again looking at the sign last
Saturday night.
“Do schools’ even have mottos
anymore?” I asked aloud to no one
in particular.
“Probably not,” I heard Jody
Brogna answer. “But they should.”

42nd annual west pi ttston cherry blossom f esti val
The 42nd Annual West Pittston Cherry
Blossom Festival opened up yesterday un-
der ideal conditions. The weather has been
cooperating the entire weekend with a
cloudless, aqua blue sky. The cherry blos-
som trees are in perfect peak conditions
budding at just the right time.
This year’s Grand Marshal is Lou Ciam-
pi, Sr., a West Pittston resident and founder
of Independent Graphics Inc. Although re-
luctant at frst to accept the offer of grand
marshal, Lou is very glad he accepted.
“The weather is beautiful and the festi-
val committee did a wonderful job in prep-
arations,” said West Pittston Mayor Tony
Denisco. “We have two great choices for
Outstanding Community Citizen Award
in John Janczewski and Lou Ciampi as
Grand Marshal. I’ve known both men for
many years working side-by-side with
John on the fre department and going to
grade school. I wish the Cherry Blossom
Festival success and this should help the
people come back (from the food). I can’t
remember the last time we’ve had such
great weather, we are very fortunate.”
The parade kicked off at high noon with
West Pittston Little League teams present
along with Little Miss Cherry Blossom
contestants, town offcials, area politicians,

TONY CALLAIO/FOR THE SUNDAY DISPATCH
Annual festival continues today on the river bank in West Pittston
Ashley Thomas waves to family members as she’s being introduced by MC Gina Malsky.
It took 62 years, but National
Prayer Day came to Pittston.
Standing at a podium in front
of city hall on Thursday afternoon
before a semi-circle of 60 people
from the neighborhood, the city
offces and his own parishioners,
the Rev. Samuel Washington of the
Perspective Church talked about
the revitalization of Pittston.
He asked the people to bowtheir
heads and he prayed, thanking God
for “everyone who has taken care
of this city” and asking Him to
watch over “her police, fremen
and administration.”
Reverend Washington talked
about his skin color saying, “I
look different than most people
in Pittston.” Hearing a few stifed
chuckles, he said, “It’s okay to
laugh” and they did.
The Reverend said one of the
reasons the Perspective Church
moved to Pittston three years
ago was because “Pittston people
didn’t see color. They embraced
me.”
City manager Joe Moskov-
itz, who stood with Police Chief
Robert Powers and Fire Chief Jim
Rooney agreed. “We have em-
braced him and his church. We
can embrace them because they
are a positive infuence. It’s across
the street from city hall and very
active, very visible. Council, the
mayor and former mayor Lombar-
do have developed a relationship
with him and his congregation.
They’ve participated in commu-
nity events like the Christmas tree
lighting and he spoke at the mu-
ral dedication. They are making a
positive contribution. We want to
be inclusive and diverse.”
The Reverend agreed in turn
saying, “We didn’t come here with
a hand out, we came here with a
hand to help.”
Washington came from New
Jersey to the Scranton area with 15
to 20 families about 10 years ago,
to “plant” a church. They moved
around to Daleville, Dunmore and
Dickson City. “We did storefronts
and things like that,” he said, “but
we couldn’t fnd a place to settle.”
Moving around was trying and
an incident of racial graffti in the
Scranton area didn’t help.
Pittston changed that three
years ago. “This is the frst place
we bought. The frst place we put
a name on. Before that we didn’t
want to give a congregation false
hope that we would be there for
them unless we knew.”
But settling in Pittston took
some doing. “I had dream we were
supposed to move to Pittston. We
rented a place and it was just too
small. We moved back to Scranton.
We were still in boxes and my wife
was doing some research on line
and ‘lo and behold your not going

It’s finally Friday in Pittston
When is the second Friday of the
month the frst?
When it’s the inaugural Sec-
ond Friday Art Walk in Downtown
Pittston.
The event is this Friday, May 10
beginning at 5 p.m. with happenings
all over the Central Business District
on Main Street.
Main Street Manager Rose Ran-
dazzo said she, council and the may-
or kicked the idea around for a year
or so. Then Sarah Donahue, a PA
teacher who lives in Pittston, con-
tacted councilman Mike Lombardo
and said she liked what was happen-
ing downtown and wanted to help.
He referred her to Randazzo.
“We collaborated,” Randazzo
said. “We got along great.”
Inspired by Scranton’s First Fri-
day, they came up with the Second
Friday idea. Maria Livrone, the di-
rector of the Art Seen Gallery also
worked on the project. “She devoted
a lot of time and energy,” Randazzo
said.
Eight movable display grids on
wheels are available to artists to
show their work at various points
on Main Street in front of busi-
nesses which are offering specials.
Live music is part of the walk at the
Lower Tomato Lot and in front of

4 board seats on ballot
JON O’CONNELL/THE SUNDAY DISPATCH
Three incumbents, two past board members and two newcomers are competing for four seats on the Pittston Area school board.
Shown is the sign in front of Pittston Area High School in Yatesville.
The Pittston Area School
Board will have at least one new
face next year.
Three incumbents, two past
board members and two new-
comers are competing for four
seats on the board.
Because it’s a primary elec-
tion and all candidates are
cross-fled, it’s foreseeable that
all candidates could advance to
the General Election in Novem-
ber. The four top vote getters on
the Republican and Democratic
ballots will advance.
Big issues facing the district
include increased
security in the
wake of the San-
dy Hook shoot-
ing, keeping up
with technology
and a $2 million
budget shortfall
which is looming
in the district but
could be acted on
before any new
members take offce in Decem-
ber. Also on the table is the clo-
sure of the Benjamin Franklin
Kindergarten Center in Dupont.
The district has a new admin-
istration in place. Its superin-
tendent, George Cosgrove, and
assistant superintendent, Jack
Lussi, both retired last year and,
as a cost-saving measure, Dr.
Michael Garzella was hired to
essentially replace them both.
Also, the district’s principal of
curriculum, Dr. Janet Donovan,
was moved to a building princi-
pal position at the Intermediate
Center.
Seven candidates are running; security and budget shortfall big issues

And, just four years ago, the dis-
trict was caught up in a countywide
corruption scandal that saw the for-
mer superintendent, Ross Scaran-
tino, and a board members, Joseph
Oliveri, spend time in jail on brib-
ery charges.
One incumbent, Bob Linskey Jr.,
did not seek a second term on the
board, instead opting to run for su-
pervisor in Jenkins Township. Five
other board members’ terms are not
yet expired. They are Board Presi-
dent Charlie Sciandra, Anthony
Guarglia, Joe Kelly, Richard Gorz-
kowski and John Donahue.
A relatively small group fled
to run for the four available seats.
In 1997, 20 candidates appeared
on the ballot for the May Primary.
In 2003, there were 17 candidates
and, in 2007, there were nine.
Seeking seats are incumbents
Kent Bratlee, Bruce Knick and
Marilyn Starna, past board mem-
bers John Adonizio and Marty
Quinn and newcomers Vito Qua-
glia and Roseanne Ricotta.
Bratlee, Quinn, Ricotta and
Knick are running together, calling
themselves “Patriot First Team.”
Knick said members of this ticket
don’t necessarily agree on every-
thing, but they are “people you
can work to come to an agreement
with, people that are able to fnd
middle ground.”
Adonizio and Knick both had
run-ins with the law during their
tenures on the board.
In 2008, Adonizio was sentenced
to one month house arrest and six
months probation on DUI and re-
sisting arrest charges. In 2012,
Knick was sentenced to the coun-
ty’s ARD program for frst-time
offenders on a DUI charge. Both
men acknowledged the incidents,
apologized and said they have put
the incidents behind them.
The following are based on inter-
views with all seven candidates, in
alphabetical order.
John Adonizio, 54, of
Hughestown, said education, the
budget and keeping taxes in check
are the three biggest issues facing
incoming members of the board.
“We want to make sure our chil-
dren get a good education,” Adon-
izio said. “Every child that comes
to our schools has an opportunity
to better themselves. Our scores
have been going up consistently.
We need to stay the course we’ve
been on.”
He said the budget needs to be
examined with a microscope.
“We’re going to have to look
at every line item and see what
we can do without,” he said. “But
there’s not much to be cut. Every-
thing is contractual.”
He said innovative savings mea-
sures and new ways of generating
revenue need to be implemented.
He said the district could save on
energy costs by moving to natural
gas or even wind power and units
capable of generating electricity
could be attached to each district
school. “There are things we can
do to be more self suffcient.”
Taxpayers, Adonizio said, can’t
afford another tax hike. “Nobody
wants to raise taxes.”
During his past tenure on the
board, Adonizio said the board had
schools wired for Internet capabil-
ity. Also, the board previously pur-
chased computers every four years
to keep up with technology, but that
was too expensive.
“We started leasing comput-
ers, so we got new ones every few
years,” Adonizio said.
He said the district’s security
system was also upgraded during
his past tenure. And he was instru-
mental in getting the marquee in
front of the high school, the new

Adonizio is a 1976 graduate
of Pittston Area High School and
studied business administration at
Marywood University and Lacka-
wanna College. He has worked
at Pepsi Bottling Group, Latona
Trucking, as a gas feld worker and
currently at Franchelli Utility Con-
tractor as a utility worker.
He is single and has twin daugh-
ters, Alexandra and Olivia, both
freshmen in college.
R. Kent Bratlee, 64, of Avoca,
was appointed to the school board
to fll the unexpired term of a board
member who resigned. He previ-
ously sat on the board for four
years. He said the three biggest
issues facing the district are the
budget, the teachers’ contract and
security.
He said the district’s $42 million
proposed budget has a $2 million
hole that needs to be plugged.
“I think we can make the cuts
from within,” he said. “There’s
loads of line items.”
Bratlee said he’d like to keep all
the sports and extra-curricular ac-
tivities intact, but everyone is going
to have to sacrifce. He hopes not to
raise taxes.
“Salaries account for $32 million
and that leaves us very little room
to operate the schools with a $42
million budget,” he said.
The current teachers’ contract
expires on June 30 and Bratlee said
he would support requiring teach-
ers to contribute to their healthcare.
“I’ll be fair if they’ll be fair,” he
said. “I have to be responsible to
the taxpayers and the educators.”
He said in light of what hap-
pened in Sandy Hook, Conn., and
in Boston, security is a pressing is-
sue and hopes the board will hire a
head of security or a security chief
to usher in the changes the district
needs.
“We’re weak now,” he said.
“Someone needs to take charge of
security.”
Bratlee favors closing the Kin-
dergarten Center, but said issues
need to be worked out before he
votes on it.
“Financially, it’s a no-brainer,”
he said. “But we have to fgure out
the logistics, ffth graders in the
same building as eighth graders,
also busing.”
Bartlee currently serves as vice
president of the board.
A former resident of West
Pittston, Bratlee was a member of
Wyoming Area High School’s frst
graduating class in 1967. He stud-
ied business at Luzerne County
Community College and served in
the U.S. Marine Corp Reserve from
1969 to 1975. He is married to the
former Alice Endres and they have
two children, Michael and Nichole,
and three grandchildren. Bratlee
formerly owned Valley Meat and
Deli in Avoca for 24 years before
retiring. He now works part-time
driving a school bus for Yatesville
Bus Co.
Bruce Knick, 43, of Dupont,
is completing his frst term on the
school board. He said technology,
security and the budget defcit are
three pressing issues the board is
facing.

Knick said cyber schools are
draining the district’s coffers and
an in-house program must be im-
plemented.
“Right now we’re using Seneca
Valley for our cyber school pro-
gram, but we need to take control
of that,” he said. “We just hired a
technology director to bring us up
to date with technology, but we
need to bring the cyber program in
house.”
Security is on everyone’s mind
after the Sandy Hook shooting in
Connecticut.
“There’s no doubt we need an
upgrade,” he said. “We’ll have to
fnd the money for that.”
But fnding the money is a dif-
ferent story with a massive budget
hole looming.
“We’re going to try to keep the
taxes down for residents of the dis-
trict,” Knick said. “We’ve been fll-
ing budget holes through attrition
and retirements. Also, an in-house
cyber program could bring money
back into the district.”
He said other districts have re-
sorted to layoffs, cutting sports and
extra-curricular activities and in-
stituting a “pay to play” policy. He
said he would work to avoid any of
that.
“We’ve been able to not cut any
of the major sports programs and
I’m proud of that,” he said. “We’ve
been able to keep operating without
furloughs, without any layoffs and
without cutting into our sports pro-
grams.”
Knick is a 1987 graduate of
Pittston Area High School and
studied business administration
classes at LCCC. He is the father
of Pittston Area ninth-grader Bruce
Knick Jr. and has been employed by
the Pennsylvania Game Commis-
sion as a gamelands maintenance
supervisor for 20 years. His work
on gamelands includes planting
vegetation for the animals and re-
pairing and maintaining roads and
bridges on state gamelands. His
late father’s business, Hidden Val-
ley Dairy, was based out of Suscon
and Knick lived there until moving
to Dupont.
Vito Quaglia, 42, of Jenkins
Township, a high school principal,
said providing a safe and secure
environment for children to learn is
his major concern. The budget and
technology in the curriculum are
two other important issues facing
the board.
A large chunk of the budget is
being directed to charter and cyber
schools, Quaglia said.
“You’re talking hundreds of
thousands of dollars,” he said. “We
need to fnd a way to bring those
students back into the fold.”
He said the goal should be to
bring in a cyber program run by the
district.
“It’s more controlled and the cur-
riculum will be seamless for both
the brick and mortar program and
the cyber program,” he said.
He said the budget crisis also
needs to be addressed.
“You can only raise taxes so
much,” he said. “You need to fnd
alternate revenue streams.”
He suggested partnerships with
businesses, such as naming rights,
as a way to general new revenue.
“We need to think outside the box.”
Quaglia said that, as a board
member, he would talk to people on
the ground and ask if there are other
issues that need to be addressed.
“But ultimately, my 20 years in
public schooling give me the ex-
pertise to help make informed deci-
sions.”
Quaglia grew up in Ashley and
graduated from Bishop Hoban
High School in 1988. He gradu-
ated from Wilkes University with
a bachelor’s degree in English
and history and a master’s degree
in education. He also received his
principal certifcate. He taught at
Delaware Valley from1993 to 1999
and at Hanover Area from 1999 to
2000. He became an assistant prin-
cipal at Wyoming Area in 2000 and
became principal of the Wyoming
Area Secondary Center in 2001.
He and his wife, the former
Joanne Policare, have three chil-
dren, Dominique, 14; Vito, 13; and
Sophia 8.
Marty Quinn, of Pittston Town-
ship, said the big issues facing
Pittston Area are education, taxes
and security.
“Technology is the big thing,” he
said. “I’d like to have a computer
in each school for each child, but
I understand they’re expensive.
We should fnd a way to pay for it.
Finding the money is the key.”
He suggests looking to the state
for help.
“The state has a lot of good pro-
grams,” he said. “If we had a good
grant writer, we could be cashing
in on a lot of state grants. Let’s get
some money back from the state.”
Quinn, who previously served on
the Pittston Area School Board for
20 years, said he is also a taxpayer.
“I don’t want to see taxes increase
because I’d be increasing my own
taxes as well.”
He suggested adding metal de-
tectors or scanners at the doorways
at each school to increase security.
“It works at airports.” But, he said,
he’d like to hear what experts have
to say.
“We all have the same goal: To
protect the children, teachers and
staff in our school,” he said. “I’ll
consider any proposals or sugges-
tions.”
Quinn, who refused to provide
his age, said he attended Pittston
Township and Pittston Central
Catholic schools in the 1950s. He
received an honorable discharge
from the U.S. Army in the late
1950s. He worked for the Team-
ster’s Union and the Lehigh Valley
Railroad and Conrail for 26 years.
He is retired and does electrical
work. He and his wife, Barbara,
have three grown children, Mitch,
Mike and Brian.
“I’m anxious to get back on the
board and see if I can help out,” he
said.
Roseanne Ricotta, 62, of
Hughestown, said healthcare costs,
the budget shortfall and not cutting
additional programs are the three
biggest issues facing the district.
She said all district employees,
including teachers, should be re-
quired to help offset the cost of
their medical insurance.
“Whether it be a higher deduct-
ible or a percent of the premium,
everyone should start contribut-
ing,” she said.
Ricotta worked for the state for
many years and workers had to start
contributing to their healthcare. “It
was slowat frst, but eventually, ev-
eryone had to do it.
“Nobody wants to be the one that
did it frst, but someone will have
to cave,” she said. “The cost of
healthcare is strangling the school
district. Free healthcare is no longer
an option.”
She said the $2 million budget
shortfall needs to be addressed.
“They’re closing the Kinder-
garten Center because the cost of
repairing it is too high,” she said.
“I think that’s a good start, but we
need more cuts. We need to fnd
places where the district is over-
spending, cut out the pork.”
She is not in favor of layoffs or
cutting more program.

Paid for by Friends of David Kaminski
Pittston Township Supervisor
Ricotta was born and raised in
Pittston and graduated fromPittston
Area High School in 1968. She
graduated from College Misericor-
dia in 1972 with a degree in sociol-
ogy and secondary education. She
was employed for 12 years in the
state Department of Education and
for 24 years in the Social Security
Administration, where she retired
as a training coordinator. She has
never held an elected offce. Ricot-
ta is single and has six great nieces
and nephews.
“My concern is that the children
are ready for the future,” she said.
Marilyn Starna, 58, of Pittston
Township, said the budget, main-
taining quality education and tech-
nology are the three issues she
feels are most important as a board
member of Pittston Area.
She said the looming defcit is
signifcant and cuts must be made,
including closing the Ben Franklin
Kindergarten Center.
“Even if we get some money
back from the state, we would take
on more than $100,000 a year in
debt service,” she said, citing the
cost of a renovation project esti-
mated to be $4.5 million.
“If I’m going to spend that much
money, I’d rather put it into educa-
tion and programs than an older
building,” Starna said, noting she
predicted this budget crisis two
years ago.
She said cash for new and inno-
vative programs is coming in from
the district’s charitable foundation,
but cuts must be made to keep the
district above water.
“We’re here for educational pur-
poses,” Starna said. “That should
be our main priority. I’d hate to see
any programs cut, but we need to
be realistic.”
She said a new technology direc-
tor is in place and the district has
computers and computerized white
board, but technology needs to be
integrated into the curriculum.
“We have everything we need,
we just need to maximize the po-
tential from it,” she said.
Starna, who is completing her
frst term on the board, said board
members are working on a budget
that will avoid any layoffs. “The
last thing I want to see is anyone
lose their job.”
Originally from Plains, the for-
mer Marilyn Jackloski graduated
from Plains High School in 1972.
She took classes at Wilkes Univer-
sity and LCCC. She is employed
as a bank manager at Wells Fargo
on Main Street in Pittston and has
worked in local banks since 1987.
She and her husband, Robert, have
resided in Pittston Township for 38
years.
They have a daughter, Leslie,
and two grandchildren, Beau and
Milania.
The primary election is on May
21.

OUROPINION
The coloring
of Pittston
Time was when a black or brown person
walking on a Greater Pittston street would
turn a few heads.
Not anymore.
Were getting more diverse.
Seeing the National Day of Prayer
gathering in front of city hall on Thursday
afternoon was proof of that. Many in the
crowd of 60 or so who were there were
black or brown, as was the man who led the
prayers, the Reverend Samuel Washington
of Perspective Church.
There was not a hint of racism or hostil-
ity in the air around the gathering.
Quite the opposite, it was more like love
was in the air.
Washington, who brought his church
to Pittston three years ago, said he was
warned that the people of Pittston don’t
want diversity.
His experience has been quite the oppo-
site. He said “I never felt that in my heart.”
The city does want diversity. It wants
a whole lot of diversity, especially young
families of any color, like those at Perspec-
tive Church.
What it doesn’t want is what any place
would not want, gangs, drug dealers, the
chronically on welfare. And, no, those are
not code phrases for anything. Just as there
are people of all colors who are welcome,
there are people of all colors who are not
welcome.
Not that there aren’t racists among
us. There are backward thinking people
everywhere.
But who cares about them?
Shun them. Let them wallow in their
hate.
Meanwhile we’ll wallow in our growing
diversity.
Get out an enjoy
The weather today is supposed to be
spectacular. We encourage everyone to
enjoy it at the Cherry Blossom Festival on
the River Common in West Pittston.
While there stop at the West Pittston
Tomorrow table and see what you can do
to help the town as it continues to recover
from the 2011 food.
There’s time to do something else today.
Get over to Robert Yaple Park in
Hughestown behind the town hall on
Center Street at 10 a.m. and walk with
Kristy DeRome to beneft Cooley’s Anemia
Foundation, an organization with a mission
to advance the treatment and cure for thal-
assemia, considered a fatal blood disease.
Kristy has the diease, but it doesn’t stop
her, so don’t let anything stop you.
YOUR SPACE
Bernie Stiroh of the history website, duryeapa.com, submitted this photo of Duryea folks out on the street during a large fre in 1910 in the
500 block of Main Street.
Note Main Street is dirt. Note the dogs roaming free. The women are wearing long dresses and the men are wearing hats. Cameras in
those days could not stop action, so you’ll see blurred images of people running or walking quickly.
Fire in 1910 caused excitement in Duryea

YOUROPINION
In some of my past letters, I’ve enjoyed writing about where I
grew up and some of the old and not so old places that in my opin-
ion add to the charm of the Garden Village. Afriend who lives out of
the area recently asked me if there are any good pubs in WP. He said
to me, “JD, the place is so small! What do you have there in the way
of a pub/eatery?”
The place that immediately came to mind was Dowses’ Suds &
Grub on Exeter Ave. The bar sits on the outskirts of town. In my
opinion, it is the perfect type of place for a sleepy little town like
WP.
Kevin Dowse Sr, born and raised in WP, is the owner, and has
been active in the community for most of his life. You want to talk
about grub? Let’s just say that Dowse can cook!
If you live in town, you’re just a short walk from your door to his,
which certainly adds to the bar’s appeal. Also, the crowd is a perfect
mix.
As a boy, I remember my dad stopping at a place called the
Susquehanna Bar & Grill - another bar on the edge of town that ft
perfectly here. And that is what compels me to write something like
this - a little nostalgia, and a little home town magic. I think that’s
the perfect motivation.

Writes in praise of local pub
My name is Clementine Arcadu. I live on East Railroad Street in
Pittston Township and I would like to publicly thank the Pittston
Township Ambulance crew for attending to me. They were the best.
I really do not know what we senior citizens would do without
the compassionate, caring people being in that profession. They are
to be commended for their service.
Thank you all, each and every one of you. You are the greatest.

NUTRI TI ON
Eating to reduce
your cancer risk
If we only had a magic pill that we could
eat to reduce our risk of cancer, wouldn’t
that be great.
Some cancers are well researched and we
do know how to reduce our risks of develop-
ing and treating them.
Others are not so well researched or the
research is quite conficting and we have
little defenses.
One thought we do know is that foods contain nutrients and phy-
tochemicals that may help us ward off some cancers.
Fruits and vegetables contain lots of four syllable words called
phytochemicals that are hard to pronounce and to understand their
detailed pathways in the body.
One example is lycopene.
Lycopene is naturally found in tomatoes. When slightly cooked,
it aids in reducing prostate cancer risks.
It is important to eat lots of fruits and vegetables every day along
with being active and keeping a healthy immune system. One half
of our lunch and dinner plates should be fruits and vegetables.
Whole grains and legumes may also reduce the risk of develop-
ing cancer.
Phytochemicals, also known as plant chemicals or phytonutri-
ents, are found naturally in plant-based foods, especially fruits and
vegetables.
Phytochemicals promote health through acting as an antioxidant,
having anti-infammatory properties and by helping rid the body of
harmful substances such as cholesterol and carcinogens.
The two groups of phytochemicals include carotenoids and poly-
phenols.
Beta carotene and lycopene are, among others, part of the carot-
enoid group and can be found in orange and yellow produce such
as carrots.
Flavonoids, catechins, anthocyanins and phenolic acid are part of
the polyphenol group and include all fruits and vegetables.
If you would like a fact sheet on which phytochemicals can be
found in which fruits and vegetables, email me at mre2@psu.edu
and I will send you a fact sheet or visit http://www.aicr.org/foods-
that-fght.
Here are two vegetables along with two new spices. Together,
they may be just the powerhouses to fght off cancer. Both cab-
bage and carrots are sources of beta carotene.
Cabbage and Carrots glazed with ginger and turmeric
1 pound fresh peeled, rinsed and sliced carrots or frozen
½ pound fresh cabbage, rinsed and sliced into ¼ inch strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic peeled and sliced
2/3 cup low sodium chicken bouillon
1 Tablespoon powdered ginger, or 6 slices of fresh ginger
1 teaspoon turmeric
Sauté garlic and fresh ginger in olive oil.
Add carrots, cooked until just before tender.
Add cabbage, low sodium broth and seasonings.
Cook additional 5 minutes.
Enjoy!
(If you would like this as a sweeter side dish, add 2 Tablespoons
of brown sugar along with seasonings. Cook as recommended.)

DIAMOND CITY TRIO
A FEW MEMBERS FROM M-80 & CHATTER
to believe this’ she said, ‘there’s a
church building for sale in our price
range in Pittston.’”
It was the Rock Church on Broad
Street, which had been a synagogue
in the deep past.
At the time, Washington’s Per-
spective Church had a TV show on
the local Fox channel. Washington
met with Judge Fred Pierantoni
“I asked him what can we do for
Pittston and he said ‘I never had
anybody come into my offce and
ask what they could do for Pittston,
they always ask what can Pittston
do for them.’ I asked him to watch
our show on Fox and the next day
he called and said what can we do
to get you in Pittston.”
Pierantoni and the city arranged
for Washington and Perspective to
use the Jefferson Park building for
free for three months, while they
saved enough money for a down
payment on the Rock building.
Some didn’t believe it would
work. “The former pastor said
we couldn’t succeed here. A, they
don’t want the gospel. B, they don’t
want diversity. People in Scranton
said ‘you’re jumping from the fry-
ing pan into fre,’ that it’s worse in
Pittston”
But that wasn’t the case.
“I found it very opposite when
we came here. I never felt that. I
never felt it in my heart. We didn’t
try to say we have the answer.
That’s a little insulting to the people
who are already here. We didn’t say
we can change the town, we came
in asking where we could help.”
The church has a roster of 200
to 300, many, but not a majority of
whom, are people of color. “I’m a
minority in my own parish,” Wash-
ington said. “Most of the congrega-
tion is white.”
The church adopted the River-
front for clean up, started a boxing
program which has grown to 30
to 40, a cyber school and a dance
school.
Washington’s daughter, Christina
Brunotte, 22, runs the dance school
in the church. She, like her father
once was, is a gymnast with Olym-
pic aspirations.
Her goal is to qualify for the U.S.
Olympic team. “It sounds silly,”
she said, “But I’ve been a gymnast
since I was two.”
Washington has three younger
girls at home, including twins, and
his wife Sarah is pregnant with a
boy.
Washington was happy with the
turnout at the inaugural National
Day of Prayer in Pittston, consider-
ing the event had been organized in
just a two days and said to rousing
applause, “Next year, let’s block the
street.”

PA senior presents check to clinic
Pittston Area senior, Miranda
Warunek, is about to graduate in a
just a few short weeks, but before
that could happen, she had to pick
a National Honor Society indepen-
dent service project. She followed
in her older sister Letitia’s footsteps
and held a fundraiser for the Free
Pediatric Health Clinic on Williams
Street in Pittston. The Care and
Concern Ministries of St. John the
Evangelist Parish oversees the Pe-
diatric Clinic.
Letitia, a 2011 Pittston Area
graduate, now a Pharmacy student
at Wilkes University, raised $7,100
for her senior project. Miranda out-
did her sister by raising a substan-
tial $9,685 for a combined total of
$16,785.
“It’s a win-win situation,” said
Miranda. “I was able to complete
my senior project, my dance group
received publicity and the Pediatric
Health Clinic benefted from the
money raised.”
Miranda is referring to the Em-
erald Isle Step Dancers, under the
direction of Jennifer Woss, who
performed a show of Irish dancing
last month at Pittston Area to raise
money for the project.
Approximately 30-baskets of
Irish, Italian, baby, pet, coffee, Vera
Bradley, snacks, Christmas, and fall
items were raffed off the night of
the show.
Miranda also raised $1,700 by
doing a grocery bagging campaign
at Gerrity’s in West Pittston and Lu-
zerne.
According to Msgr. John Ben-
dik, pastor of St. John the Evange-
list Parish in Pittston, the Pediatric
Clinic has seen over 220 children
from 144 families visiting the of-
fce 687 times since its inception in
2010.
“The donation is very generous,”
said Bendik. We serve so many
children and families because they
can’t afford health care and dona-
tions like this will serve many more
children. Just this morning, we had
a child that had never received an
inoculation.”
Dr. Michael Imbrogno and his
wife Sharon, RN. are the current
administrators of the Pediatric
Clinic.
After graduation, Miranda will
attend the six-year Physician’s As-
sistant’s programat King’s College.
Miranda is the daughter of Jo-
seph and Patricia Warunek.
Miranda Warunek raises over $9,000 as part of Honor Society service project
Miranda Warunek, a senior at Pittston Area High School, raised $9,685 for the Pediatric Health Clinic, Pittston, to fulfill her inde-
pendent serivce project as a member of the National Honor Society. Shown in the photo are, front row, left to right: Deacon James

Just Because
Pittston High Class
of 1966 gets together
for no particular reason
BILL TARUTIS PHOTOS/FOR THE SUNDAY DISPATCH
A Pittston High jacket and 1966 yearbook on display.
Does it take a milestone anni-
versary for a high school gradu-
ating class to get together?
Not if you’re the Pittston High
School Class of 1966.
Some two dozen members of
the class — about a quarter of the
graduates — gathered last Satur-
day night, April 27, at Arcaro &
Genell’s Restaurant in Old Forge
to enjoy food, drink and fellow-
ship. And all in attendance said
they were glad they did.
Class members and their
guests spent the evening relating
stories, old and new, and enjoy-
ing all sorts of memorabilia on
display, including the “To strive,
to seek, to find, and not to yield”
sign that hung in the lobby of the
high school displaying the school
motto.
Classmates agreed that similar
gatherings should be held annu-
ally leading up to the 50th anni-
versary celebration in 2016.
The Class of ‘66 was the last
graduating class of Pittston High.
The following year was the first
year of the Pittston Area School
District.
Jody and Marion Brogna look over class memorabilia.

weapon outside their home. The Supreme Court
in 2008 recognized an individual’s right to keep
and bear arms, under the Second Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution (“a well regulated Militia,
being necessary to the security of a free State, the
right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall
not be infringed.”) but federal courts have divided
on whether the ruling extended the right outside
the home.

A new state law enacted in Connecticut adds
a veteran’s fag symbol on drivers licenses and
state ID’s.
***
A federal judge has upheld sensible restrictions
adopted by the city of Providence, Rhode Island,
that prohibit tobacco companies from luring
kids with cheap and sweet tobacco products.
The ordinances prohibit the sale of favored
non-cigarette tobacco products except in certain
adult facilities (favored cigarettes are banned by
federal law); and prohibit the use of coupons and
multi-pack discounts (e.g., “buy-two-get-one-
free”) that make tobacco products cheaper and
more appealing to kids. Providence is one of the
frst cities in the country to adopt such measures.
The court found that Providence’s restrictions
are reasonable regulations of the sales - not
the marketing - of tobacco products and serve
the city’s legitimate goal of reducing smoking
and other tobacco use, especially among kids,
rejecting arguments by tobacco companies that
the ordinances violated their First Amendment
rights and are also preempted by federal and
state law.

It’s You Against Te Little Old Lady
Pennsylvania’s Rules of Evidence
prohibit an injured party (plaintiff)
from informing the jury that the
defendant in a civil case has
insurance to pay the verdict. The
reasoning behind the Rule is to
keep the jury focused on the facts
of the case, instead of on the
issue of how much insurance the
defendant carries. It’s also feared
that the jury will award a runaway
verdict if it thinks a large insurance
company is going to pay it on
behalf of the defendant.
The Rule’s practical effect,
however, is to make the jury think
that the little old lady, or young
college student, sitting in front of
it will have to personally pay the
plaintiff any verdict that’s awarded.
This can lead to an unfair verdict,
since the jury will be reluctant to
award a large verdict if it thinks
it will financially destroy the
defendant’s life.
Many facts in a case are
purposefully kept from juries for
fear that the jury will be prejudiced
or swayed by such knowledge.
Perhaps it’s time juries hear the
truth, the whole truth, and nothing
but the truth.

PA girls track down title at Jordan Relays
The Pittston Area girls track
team had an eye on Abington
Heights and its six-year champion-
ship streak from the moment it ar-
rived at the Jordan Relays in Scran-
ton Thursday night.
Their ears were part of the pur-
suit as well.
“We were watching them,” Al-
lie Barber said. “Especially in that
last race, when they announced the
scores.”
Just before stepping to the start-
ing line for the closing 4 x 400 me-
ter relay, the Lady Patriots learned
they had a one-point lead on the
Lady Comets and could clinch a
team championship by fnishing
ahead of Abington Heights in the
event.
Barber took it from there, open-
ing a signifcant lead over Abington
Heights in the second leg of the re-
lay on the way to a ffth-place fnish
in the event that secured the team
championship.
Pittston Area outscored Abing-
ton Heights, 42-40, to take the title.
“We were looking at them the
whole time,” said Pittston Area
coach Joe Struckus, who arrived
at Memorial Stadium believing his
team had a strong chance of end-
ing the Abington Heights title run
in a showdown between the two
teams that are unbeaten and on top
of the big school divisions of their
leagues.
The Pittston Area girls won two
events on a record-setting night.
The Patriots also won two events in
Class AAA boys to fnish third in
those team standings.
The Lady Patriots scored more
points elsewhere, but needed a
clutch performance in the fnal
event for their frst Jordan Relays
titles.
With the teams separated by
six lanes and a large stagger, it
was tough to determine who had
an advantage in the frst leg, but
Liz Waleski managed to make the
frst handoff ahead of the Abington
Heights leadoff runner, giving Bar

Warriors two back with three to play
After a win on Monday, Patriots are no-hit by Berwick Friday
Without help, Wyoming Area
may run out of time in its hopes of
winning a Wyoming Valley Con-
ference Division 2 title.
Friday’s break-out performance
offensively is, at minimum, a
good sign heading into the play-
offs while also giving the Warriors
hope of making more out of their
regular season.
Bart Chupka homered and
drove in four runs as Wyoming
Area downed Holy Redeemer,
7-1, at Hollenback Park.
The Warriors led the last place
Royals just 3-1 going to the ffth
inning.
Trent Grove started the inning
with a single and Chupka fol-
lowed with a two-run homer.
“We needed runs,” Chupka
said. “He gave me a curveball. He
left it high – he hung it – and I just
hit it.”
Chupka lifted a shot over the
fence and lifted the spirits of a
team that has been struggling of-
fensively.
“Our team hasn’t been hitting
too well as a whole unit, so it
was a bit of a breakout,” Chupka
said. “It’s the right time to get
hot. We’re going into the playoff
soon.”
Before that, the Warriors (7-4)
have three WVC games left. They
are two games behind frst-place
Tunkhannock and play the Tigers
on the road Saturday at 4 p.m.
Two of the three previous Wyo-
ming Area games went 11 innings
and ended with 2-1 scores – a win
over Dallas and a loss to Berwick.
The Warriors came into Friday
with just seven runs scored in 29
innings. They have remained suc-
cessful – four wins in the last fve
games overall – by remaining dif-
fcult to score upon, giving up just
fve runs in 40 innings through
Friday.
“We have played a lot of games
where we are scoring very little
runs, but we’re still playing very
well,” Wyoming Area coach
Chick Androscavage said. “It’s
tough. We need to get some big
hits and we’ll be OK.”
“We talk about it a lot, but then

a lot of time, it gets in their head. I
think today helped us a little.”
Chupka also had an RBI single
in the frst inning after Mike Carey
and Joe Gavenonis had consecu-
tive singles. He drove
in Gavenonis, who had
led off with a walk, on a
third-inning groundout.
Winning pitcher Jake
Granteed followed Chup-
ka’s home run with a sin-
gle and eventually scored
an unearned run to com-
plete the three-run ffth.
Marty Michaels dou-
bled with one out in the
seventh and scored on a
Brian Mapes groundout.
Granteed went the
distance, holding Holy
Redeemer scoreless after
the Royals tied the game
in the bottom of the frst.
He threw a four-hitter
with two walks and fve
strikeouts.
“Tunkhannock is two
games ahead, so we need
some help,” Androscavage said.
“For us to do anything, we need to
win out and Tunkhannock has to
lose to someone else besides us.”
More offensive days like Friday
would improve the possibility of
Wyoming Area taking care of its
part of that equation.
Berwick 2, Wyoming Area 1
Wyoming Area’s Joe Gavenonis,
Jeremy Zezza and Zach Lopatka
combined to allow just two hits in
the frst 10 innings before Berwick
put together two more in the bottom
of the 11th to pull out a 2-1 victory
Wednesday.
Lopatka, who was 2-for-3, drove
in Erik Walkowiak in the top of the
second to make it 1-1. The game
stayed that way until Berwick
scored in the 11th.
Wyoming Area 4
Wyoming Valley West 2
Jake Granteed gave up nine hits
in a complete game Monday, but
limited Wyoming Valley West’s
scoring to lead Wyoming Area to a
4-2 win.
Granteed walked just one and
struck out two.
The Warriors opened a 3-0 lead
in the frst 2 ½ innings.
Bart Chupka doubled for the
only Wyoming Area extra-base hit
and six other players added singles.
Zach Lopatka, Mike Carey and Joe
Gavenonis drove in runs.
Pittston Area 8
Holy Redeemer 3
Tyler McGarry went 2-for-3 with
two runs batted in and scored twice
Monday when Pittston Area picked
up its second win of the season,
8-3, over Holy Redeemer.
Michael Schwab struck out fve
in four innings.
Justin Glasgow, John Faggotti
and Matt Mott then worked one
scoreless inning of relief each to
protect the fve-run lead.
James Emmett doubled and
drove in two runs. Jordan House-
man added a triple and
John Kielbasa scored
twice.
The Patriots did all
their scoring early with
three runs in the bottom
of the frst and fve more
in the third.
Dallas 13
Pittston Area 3
Dallas downed Pittston
Area, 13-3, in six innings
Wednesday.
Josh Razvillas had a
home run and a double
for the Patriots in the loss.
Jordan McCrumm was
3-for-4 with two triples
and a double to back Bri-
an Stepniak’s fve-hitter
for Dallas.
Berwick 2-13,
Pittston Area 0-0
Andrew Lawrence and
Jordan DiValerio threw a fve-in-
ning, no-hitter for Berwick Friday
in a 13-0 victory that gave the Bull-
dogs their second shutout of the day
over Pittston Area.
Berwick started the day by fn-
ishing off a suspended game with a
2-0 victory.
T.J. Lashock went 6-for-7 with
two doubles and six RBI for Ber-
wick in the two games.
Josh Razvillas,
Jordan Houseman
and John Kielbasa

tance, giving up six
hits and walking
two while striking
out four.

innings, and DiVale-
rio, who pitched the

ber a lead of about a second.
Barber took it from there, run-
ning her best 400 meters of the
season, in under 61 seconds. By
the time, she passed the baton to
Madison Mimnaugh, the lead over
Abington Heights was at close to
fve seconds.
Mimnaugh, running a 400 in
competition for the frst time this
season, nearly matched Barber’s
time, giving Catherine Lombardo a
large lead over the Lady Comets to
protect for the fnal 400 meters.
The Lady Patriots fnished in
4:09.67, within a second of their
school record, to fnish more than
six seconds ahead of Abington
Heights, which took sixth in the
event.
“We just all strive to do our best,”
Barber said. “We broke a bunch of
records.”
Pittston Area, the only Wyoming
Valley Conference team entered,
set records in each of its girls wins.
The Lady Patriots shattered the
meet record by 12 seconds winning
the opening distance medley relay
in 9:36.06. Lombardo, Samantha
Mayers, Waleski and Mimnaugh
formed the winning team.
Adding Mimnaugh, who runs the
1600 and 800 in dual meets, to the
relay combination provided a big
boost. She joined Lombardo and
Mayers on another record-setting
team, establishing a school mark in
the 4 x 800 relay in 9:42.8.
Tara Johnson completed the 4 x
800 team.
The Lady Patriots added two
third-place and two ffth-place fn-
ishes.

ers were on the third-place teams
in the 4x100 and the 1600 medley.
Sierra Williams and Barber joined
them in the 4 x 100. Eastin Ashby
and Katilynn Kutcha completed the
1600 medley.

and Williams fnished ffth in the
1200 sprint medley.
The PittstonArea boys won the 4
x 100 and 1200 sprint medley and
added a second-place fnish in the
4 x 400 relay where they fell fve-
hundredths of a second short in a
battle with Delaware Valley.
Austin Naples, Ronnie D’Eliseo
and Mike Harth were on all three
teams. Josh John joined them twice
and Angelo Aita led off the 4x100.
The Patriots fnished with 33
points, behind frst-place Scranton
Prep’s 39 and North Pocono’s 36
among 11 Class AAAteams.
PA115, Berwick 35
Catherine Lombardo raced on
two winning relay teams and won
the 400 meter dash as Pittston Area

Harding youth
bags first turkey
with bow, arrow
Connor Switzer, 14 from Hard-
ing, shot his frst archery turkey on
April 20 during the Pennsylvania
Youth Turkey Hunt.
The turkey weighed 16 lbs, had
a 6 1/2 beard, and 1/2 spurs.
He used a Hoyt Spyder Bow,
with a Winners Choice Xtreme
8190 string, Carbon Express
Maxima Blue Streak Arrows with
NAP Twister Quick Fletch Vanes,
and Rage Turkey 2 Blade 100gr
Broadhead.
His parents purchased the bow
for him in January and he had
practiced hard in order to get ready
for the Youth Turkey Season.
Connor and his father were
hunting on their property in Hard-
ing in a newly developed food plot
that was made last July and they
were hunting out of their Redneck
Blind. The gobbler responded
hesitantly at frst to a Hunter Spe-
cialties box call, but a slate call of
clucks and purrs really brought
him into a decoy setup.
The gobbler was with two other
Jakes. Once the birds saw their de-
coys, all three birds hopped over
a wall, which can be seen in the
picture, and were within 10 yards
of their setup and blind. With one
shot Connor hit the gobbler and it
went down.
Connor and his father thank
Jason Snavely, their wildlife con-
sultant, Lonesome Road Archery,
and good friends Rich Gdovin and
Mike Karcutski.

Ryleigh Fitch with
one out and the bas-

PEEKING INTO
THE PAST
BY JUDY MINSAVAGE
Residents upset
over gas fee
hike in 1948
Question:
In 1968, why were
players on the Pittston
Area baseball team un-
der more pressure than
usual at the start of
their season?
1948 - 65 YEARS
AGO
Pittston city officials strongly pro-
tested a 10 percent rate increase pro-
posed by the Pittston Gas Company.
The new rate, set for approval by the
Public Utility Commission, was due to
the increased cost of coal, oil and labor.
The Pittston Gas Company was listed
as part of a chain under the holdings
of John W. Ware and served Pittston,
Hughestown, West Pittston and Exeter.
According to Act 43 of 1937, the Gen-
eral Assembly replaced the Public Ser-
vice Commission with the Public Util-
ity Commission, to better “supervise
and regulate” all public utilities doing
business in the Commonwealth.
St. John’s High School participated
in the first Anthracite Track and Field
Games sponsored by the University of
Scranton. Having only a “few days to
practice on a new field” the Johnnies
held the lead in many of the events.
Bernie Klemchak, Ozzie English,
Leo Jordan and Tommy McFadden
captured the 440 yard relay by 20 yards.
Joe McGlynn, Joe Clark, Joe Lough-
ney and Jim Manley took the second
race by 40 yards and in the 880 yard re-
lay Frank Doyle, John Connors, Mar-
ty Micklas and Joe “Dusty” Connors
led the pack by 400 yards.
1958 - 55 YEARS AGO
Airman Third Class John N. Kavka,
of Pittston, was awarded the American
Spirit Honor Medal at Warren Air Force
Base in Wyoming. The award was in
recognition of his outstanding traits,
honor, initiative, loyalty and high ex-
ample to fellow airmen. Kavka was a
1956 graduate of Pittston High School.
The award is a bronze medallion, 1 3/8
inches in diameter, on the obverse side
a sunburst with the American Eagle
rampant, superimposed. Around the pe-
rimeter are the words “American Spirit
Honor Medal” and in an interior circle
the motto of the Citizens Committee
for the Army, Navy, and Air Force, Inc.:
“Serve with Heart, Head, and Hand.”
On the reverse side is a torch with the
words “For High Example to Comrades
in Arms.”
Louis Forlenza, of West Pittston,
held the distinction of being the “first
resident of Italian ancestry” to hold an
elected office in the borough. Forlenza
won the post of justice of the peace in
the 1958 election. A well-known barber
and resident of West Pittston for 25
years, Forlenza was honored at a ban-
quet chaired by Nicholas Soricelli and
Al Forlenza. Members of the planning
committee included Joseph Chiampi,
Peter Carozza, Al Balzano, Anthony
Pugliese and Fred Ciampi.
The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring Pho-
tographer asked, “Would you say men
are taking second place to women in
today’s world?” Mary Ann Mazaitis,
of Pittston, answered, “Yes, if women
had the opportunities men have there
would be no question women would
be in first place and men in second.
Jerome Lapansky, of Port Griffith,
added, “No, I think when times change
men will get back to work and women
will go back to taking care of their
homes.” Angelo Saia, of West Pittston,
stated, “Yes, come to think of it hadn’t
it always been like that? Maybe it’s just
that men are beginning now to find out
how things are.”
1968 - 45 YEARS AGO
Pittston and West Pittston joined
forces by designating the month of
May as Clean Up, Paint Up and Fix
Up Month. Marilyn Van Duzer, of
West Pittston, event chairman, Roy
Stauffer, honorary chairman, Robert
Loftus, Pittston mayor, Robert Camp-
bell, West Pittston mayor, Robert

BROADWAY ON WYOMING
Our spring concert, Broadway on
Wyoming, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on
Wednesday, May 8 in the school auditori-
um. This concert is a concluding residency
show integrating the arts and utilizes all
facets of a Broadway show, presented by
students in grades Pk-8. Our concert this
year is being conducted by our Artist in
Residence Mr. Thomas Mark Fallon.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Mr. Thomas Mark Fallon, a Countertenor
Vocal Artist, is the Artist in Residence at
Wyoming Area Catholic for the spring se-
mester. Mr. Fallon is a native of Scranton,
but currently resides in Boston. His resi-
dency has been made possible through
the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts as
an Advanced Rostered Artist with NEIU 19
and the Parent Volunteer Association of
Wyoming Area Catholic School.
PATRONS
As we prepare for our Broadway Ex-
travaganza, we are in the process of
transforming our stage and auditorium
and hallway into a Broadway theater. We
have been working hard to lay out plans
and one of the ideas we have is to line
the hallway leading to the “theater” with
“Hollywood Stars” or patrons. The stars
are made of vinyl and peel back so that,
at the end of the evening performance,
patrons can take their star home. We are
selling these “stars” or patrons for $10.
For more information, all the school at
654-7982.

I
t isn’t Sky-
fall, but the
story of Fred
Gedrich’s work-
ing life with
the U.S. Depart-
ments of Defense
and State is one of
political intrigue
in exotic locales.
Gedrich has been
to 50 countries.
His favorite
place? His home-
town of Avoca.
Gedrich has
dined in exotic lo-
cales such as Rome
and Paris.
His favorite dish?
Cebula’s Pizza in
Dupont. Whenever
he comes home for
a visit, he takes mul-
tiple trays of the pizza
— created by his late
paternal Aunt Lily in
the 1930s — back to
Virginia where he lives.
Gedrich has written
articles for the Jerusa-
lem Post, The Miami Herald, Na-
tional Review Online, New York Post,
New York Daily News, San Francisco
Chronicle and Washington Times.
His favorite publication? The Sunday
Dispatch.
The great-grandson of Irish and Pol-
ish immigrants, Gedrich grew up in
Avoca in the 1950s before the school
consolidation, when Avocans had
everything they needed within the
town’s square mile. There were four
elementary schools and a high school,
five churches, mom and pop grocery
and butcher shops, an Acme and
A&P, a bakery, barber and shoe shops,
the earliest local Little League, a vol-
unteer fire company and plenty of
sandlots around town where the kids
played baseball, football and basket-
WORL D VI EW
Having visited 48 of the 50 states and 50 countries,
Fred Gedrich offers his take on the world.
Most impoverished nation visited: Haiti (I high-
lighted many of its problems in a 2004 UPI essay
titled ‘Ending Haiti’s Nightmare.’)
Best event attended: President Ronald Reagan’s
National Cathedral funeral service in the company of
U.S. and global dignitaries.
Happiest experiences: With my wife, Gail, the birth
of our children, grandchildren and great-grand-
child and, most recently, the birth of our youngest
grandchild, Olivia.
Favorite place most to visit: Family and friends in
Avoca. While things have changed in the old home-
town, one thing hasn’t - the friendships. I’ve been
blessed with a treasure-trove of lifetime friends
and memories. Though I live in Virginia, I keep in
touch with a lot of my childhood friends scattered
around the country or still living in town. We rou-
tinely spin yarns, mostly via the Internet, about
days of yore and current topics. And every one
of us religiously follows our real paper of record,
the Pittston Sunday Dispatch.

Kindergarten class sends get-well cards to Boston bombing victim
As the world follows the stories of the
Boston Marathon bombing, Emily Sworen
at the Ben Franklin Kindergarten Center
was struck by one story in particular
about a girl named Jane Richard. Jane
lost her brother and one of her legs in
the bombing. After hearing this, Emily
asked her mom and dad if they thought
it would be nice to have her Kindergar-
ten class make Jane cards and send
her some well wishes. Her parents as
well as her teacher, Mrs. Teresa Luv-
ender, thought this was a great idea. The
students in Mrs. Luvender’s class made
homemade cards with messages, intro-
ducing themselves and wishing Jane a
speedy recovery. Mrs. Sworen kindly vol-
unteered to mail the cards and they are
on their way to Jane. From left, first row,

Students learn about ecosystems PA Key Club installs officers
Students in Mrs. Donna Bittmann’s fourth grade class at the Pittston Area
Intermediate Center recently finished learning about Ecosystems. They ap-
plied their knowledge by creating an ecosystemof their choice and were asked

ists within that ecosystem. Students created ocean, desert and forest eco-
systems.Some of the students from Mrs. Bittmann’s class with their Ecosys-

ers, through May 10, on Tuesday and
Thursday mornings, to tabulate dona-
tions. Additionally, approximately 50
volunteers are needed to safely and
efficiently coordinate the race on race
day. If you’ve never witnessed race
day, it is a great day filled with high
energy and lots of excitement.
Catholic schools celebrate ‘Royal Pi Day’
Schools from the Holy Redeemer System of the Diocese of Scranton
celebrated “Royal Pi Day” at Holy Redeemer High School during a day of
activities that focused on the world’s most famous math symbol, (Pi), the
ratio of a circle’s circumference to its radius. As a number, Pi is represent-
ed by 3.14159, but it is a never-ending number with no repeating pattern,
making it one of math’s most intriguing concepts. Over 200 sixth grade
students from Wyoming Area Catholic School, Good Shepherd Academy,
Holy Rosary School, St. Nicholas/St. Mary’s School, St. Jude’s School and
Holy Family Academy attended the first “Royal Pi Day.” Students from
each school wore t-shirts their school designed for the day and took part
in 20 activities from pie eating to pi fishing. Activities were sponsored by
the schools and coordinated by student volunteers from Holy Redeemer.
Awards were presented to students at the conclusion of the day. All par-
ticipants also formed a human pi symbol on school grounds.
The event was created by a “Pi Committee” composed of representa-
tives from all the schools and coordinated by Eileen Rishcoff of Wyoming
Area Catholic and Ann Tribendis of Holy Redeemer. Pi Day also included a
system-wide service project where students donated “round” toys (balls,
dartboards, hula hoops, etc.) to Children’s Service Center for use in its
partial education program. Shown during the donation are, from left Holy
Redeemer students Sydney Kotch, Nanticoke; Kasey Miller, Hanover Twp.;

Children’s Service Center; Ann Tribendis, Holy Redeemer.

Mrs. Eliza Ruhamah Scidmore, was the
first person to approach the U.S. Army
Superintendent of the Office of Public
Buildings and Grounds in Washington,
DC, “with the proposal that cherry
trees be planted along the reclaimed
Potomac waterfront.”
Her request was denied. Many years
later, however, trees donated by the
Japanese government were planted in
Washington.

1978 - 35 YEARS AGO
The Martin L. Mattei Junior High
School constructed on the former Bone
Stadium site in Hughestown invited
the public to an open house.
Scheduled to speak at the event were
Ettore Lippi, architect; Michael Hop-
kins, president of the PA Federation of
Teachers; William Alaimo, Key Club
representative; Carmen Montagna,
school board president; Tino Turco,
junior high principal; and Martin Mat-
tei, Pittston Area superintendent.
Answer:
The Pittston Area baseball team was
off to a good season start, leading the
league 2-0. But they were under ad-
ditional pressure in 1968 to rival the
Patriot football and basketball squads’
undefeated records.
Members of the Patriot base-
ball team in 1968 were Jim Salitis,
Bruce Timchack, Carl Tomashu-
nas, Ed Murphy, Mike Sperrazza,
John Richards, Tony Testa, Marty
Walker, Sam Chiarelli, student man-
ager Jim Ardoline, Anthony Bantell,
John Chimento, Richie Rava, Lou
Loquasto, Paul Tylawski, Lou Trib-
bett, Charles Turco, Joe Neureuter ,
Jerry Daley and Steve Mudlock.
Did the team finish the season un-
beaten?

ball in season. Fred played run-
ningback for the Avoca high
school football team, graduating
in 1960.
It was a time and place where
nobody complained about hav-
ing nothing to do. Avoca had a
movie theater and plenty of cool
hangouts such as Meade’s Pool
Hall, Martha’s and Clifford’s
soda shops, Haddock’s Swing
Shop and the Barbeque.
For Gedrich, growing up in
that Norman Rockwellesque Av-
oca was character-building and
safe. “I wouldn’t trade the small-
town experience for anything in
the world,” he said. “It provided
a solid foundation to develop
hard-nosed skills in the class-
roomand in sports which would
prove very valuable in later
life, in college and beyond. For
that, I give a lot of credit to my
parents, the nuns at St. Mary’s
and teachers at Avoca public
schools and the adult mentors
around town. Everybody knew
everybody in town and parents
almost always knew what their
children were doing.”
Gedrich’s parents, Rita and
Fred, who died six months apart
in 1994, instilled a work ethic
in him. Rita worked at Laura
Fashions which took over the
old Avoca Palace Theater and
then at Topps in Duryea. Fred
Sr. started as a short-order cook
and eventually became a chef in
local restaurants and in the Po-
conos.
Gedrich’s own son, Doug,
his youngest, was also a res-
taurateur. For all the stunning
positive turns Gedrich’s life has
taken, he wasn’t immune to
tragedy. He outlived Doug, who
died in 2009.
After he graduated from
Avoca High, Gedrich did a
three-year Army hitch, serving
in Korea in the 1960s. When
discharged, he came back to
Avoca, worked a couple blue-
collar jobs and then at the Toby-
hanna Army Depot as electronic
tech. That was considered a
coveted and secure job and a lot
of people thought he was crazy
when he gave it up an enrolled
at Wilkes on the G.I. Bill. He
graduated in 1973 and landed a
job with the Navy. In ’83, he got
a master’s degree from Central
Michigan and transferred to the
Department of Defense, evaluat-
ing aircraft, missiles and ships.
In 1987, he moved to the State
Department.
With State, he was witness
to some of the major turning
points in global political history.
He was in Beijing, China during
the Tiananmen Square Massa-
cre; Beirut, Lebanon under hos-
tile conditions; Haiti during the
embargo; several African coun-
tries undergoing political, eco-
nomic and social turmoil; and
the newly independent states
in the former Soviet Union after
the collapse of the Communist
empire. He can’t tell some of
the wild stories, but he does tell
some funny ones, like the time
he bought dinner for 10 people
in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan’s fin-
est restaurant, for less than one
U.S. dollar.
Gedrich retired after 28 years
and is now a foreign policy and
national security analyst for
print, radio and TV. He has ap-
peared on BBC, CNN, Fox News
Channel and MSNBC and has
been a guest on hundreds of
radio stations throughout the
country, discussing world affairs
and the Global War on Terror.
He is also a contributing author
in the book “War Footing” and
a frequent guest at embassy par-
ties.
He’s met entertainment ce-
lebrities like Jane Russell, John
Wayne, Art Linkletter and Pat
Boone and political celebri-
ties like Margaret Thatcher,
United Nations Ambassadors
John Bolton and John Negro-
ponte, Mitch McConnell, John
Boehner, Newt Gingrich Gov.
Jerry Brown, Al Gore, Howard
Dean and Patrick Kennedy.
He worked closely with late
Senator Jesse Helms and his
staff when Helms was Chair-
man of Senate Foreign Relations
Committee to pass the Ameri-
can Service Members Protec-
tion Act, which Gedrich calls,
“one of my proudest achieve-
ments.”
His favorite of those he’s met
is Lech Walesa – the electrician
from Gdansk who led Poland’s
Solidarity Labor Movement and
who became Poland’s first post
WWII freely-elected president
after WWII. Gedrich admires
Walesa as a man from a humble
background who challenged and
helped topple the Soviet com-
munist empire.
Gedrich is a political conser-
vative and a super patriot. He’s
involved with The Wounded
Warriors Project and visits
wounded vets at Walter Reed
Hospital and martyred vets at
Arlington National Cemetery
where he always stops at the
graves of Greater Pittston sol-
diers.
Having seen most of the
world, Gedrich has a perspec-
tive on America. “There isn’t a
place that even comes close to
the United States in terms of
freedom, prosperity and oppor-
tunity. I firmly believe that most
of the world’s seven billion plus
residents would move to the
U.S. in a heartbeat if given the
chance.”
If there’s a secret to Gedrich’s
success, it’s clean living. He
could probably fit into his old
Avoca Buffaloes football uni-
form. He doesn’t drink or smoke
and he runs everyday, literally.
He hasn’t missed a daily run in
over 30 years and figures he’s
covered over 55,000 miles. He’s
run around the walls of the Old
City of Jerusalem and along the
Nile in Egypt.
As though he didn’t travel
enough with State — he once
flew around the world to urgent
assignments in a matter of days
from Washington, D.C. to Frank-
furt, Germany to Tokyo and
back to D.C. – his favorite thing
to do in retirement is travel.
He’s been to Machu Picchu,
the Great Wall and the Masai
Mara international game park
in Kenya. He’s been to 48 of 50
states, with North Dakota and
Oregon still on his list. He’s
been to Yellowstone National
Park multiple times.
