A Wine and Dine Festival set for June 29 at the Luzerne

County Fairgrounds is the latest venture of the Dallas Rotary


Club.
The list of events and projects the club sponsors is long,
but the group wants to do even more with proceeds from this
event.
The festival which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. will feature
11 wineries, 17 food vendors and 32 craft vendors. Festival
attendees will be able to sample all the wines and food will
be available for purchase. Wineries will also sell wine by the
bottle and the case.
Sandy Peoples, public relations chair for the 80-year-old
group, said that, in addition to vendors, the festival will have
live music to add to the fun.
Because the festival is new, the Rotary club will not man
the food booth at the Back Mountain Library Auction this
year.
It was a difficult choice, Peoples said. She pointed out
that Rotary was instrumental
in founding both the library
and the auction.
The club takes on a daunting
list of projects which require
funding every year. Peoples
listed a Christmas shopping
spree for 45 needy children in
the Dallas, Lake-Lehman and
Northwest School districts,
a book scholarship program,
a dictionary program which
distributes 400 dictionaries to
area third-graders and support
for a number of institutions,
including the Senior Center, Habitat for Humanity and the
Salvation Army.
Peoples said the group
feels it can do even more for
the community by creating
the Wine and Dine Festival.
We want to transfer time
and talent to a bigger pic-
ture, she said, adding that
the group will contine to
support the library auction
with a monetary contribu-
tion and a basket for the
basket booth.
Were hoping our festival
will be a big hit, she said of
the wine event.
One thing is sure - proceeds from
the festival will go to a good cause.

Celebrating trend-setters
David and Judy Rimple have always been trend-setters. He as the
rst cardiologist in Wyoming Valley. She as the driving force behind
the Back Mountain Trail.
The Dallas Township couple made history again Tuesday evening
when they accepted the rst-ever Charles D. Lemmond Jr. Community
Spirit Award. The presentation of the award, established by The Dallas
Post, was made in Lemmond Theater on the campus of Misericordia
University and was followed by a reception in Sandy & Marlene
Insalaco Hall.
The award is named after the former senator who passed away in
2012 and is designed to recognize a resident of the Back Mountai for
his or her leadership and advancement of community spirit.
The award honors those who endeavor to improve the lives of Back
Mountain residents through outstanding community service, puiblic
service or philanthropy and embody Senator Lemmonds commitment
to doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reason.
The Rimples were chosen from several nominations received from
Dallas Post readers.
The audience included many who came to pay tribute to the memory
of Senator Lemmond as well as to show support for the Rimples and
the community work they perform.
Mrs. Barbara Lemmond, wife of the late senator, and Judy Lemmond,
his daughter, attended with Shawn Murphy, former long-time district
ofce director for Senator Lemmond.
Sen. Lisa Baker, who now holds the position Senator Lemmond once
held, was unable to attend as she was attending budget hearing meet-
ings in Harrisburg. Tom Yoniski, her eld services director, presented
the Rimples with a Senate proclamation.
Mark Albrecht nominated the Rimples for the award,
Te Dallas Post honors Judy and David Rimple as the
frst-ever recipients of the Charles D. Lemmond
Community Spirit Award.
Castle Inn
demolished
Charlotte Bartizek
Dallas Post Correspondent
The Castle Inn, a Back Mountain res-
taurant dining institution since 1927 on
state Route 415 in Dallas, was torn down
Monday, June 17.
According to Dallas Township Zoning
Ofce Carl Albert, the building is owned by
the Triangle 24 Hour Club Inc., 26 Lenape
Court, Wilkes-Barre.
Triangle 24 Hour Club bought the Castle
Inn from Valgadur Omar Hallsson for
$307,000 in July 2012. Hallsonn, a popular
owner/chef bought the restaurant in 1992,
which catered to many civic organizations
in the area, serving catered food and provid-
ing a convivial location for events.
The Triangle 24 Hour Club, a non-prot
Alcoholic Anonymous group, presently
meets in a building next to Back Mountain
Bowl in front of Dallas Nursery where it
rents space.
The group had wanted to own a building,
according to previous reports by Nicholas
Colangelo, a board member of Triangle 24
Hour Club, Inc. In 2012, Colangelo said the
building would be used strictly for meetings
and would not be a treatment, counseling or
evaluation site and would denitely not be a
halfway house.
Colangelo is also the executive director of
Clear Brook, Inc a drug and alcohol residen-
tial treatment center in Wilkes-Barre. In the
past, he has made a point of noting there
is no afliation between Clearbrook and the
Triangle 24 Hour Club.
In previous reports, Colangelo estimated
there would be 30 to 40 meetings a week
in the building, attended by people who no
longer drink or do drugs and who are look-
ing for support to stay clean.
He has said in the past the location was
ideal, accessible and had plenty of parking.
According to Albert, Colangelo took out
permits to renovate the property.
Yes, Im very surprised now that they
have taken out a permit to tear down the
place, Albert said.
Although Albert said the township has not
received requests for any other permits for
the property, Jack Kugler, who lives 500 feet
from where the restaurant once stood, said
the Triangle 24 group had tried to repair
the structure, including adding a new roof,
but found it was not a cost-effective project.
Kugler said he was told a new structure will
be built and will be used for AA meetings.
LAKE-LEHMAN SCHOOL DISTRICT
Divided board votes for
property tax increase
Lake-Lehman School Board
members voted in the highest
tax increase allowed by the state
at their June 17 meeting.
The $27 million dollar budget
will require a 4.33% increase for
residents who live in Luzerne
County while those residing in
Wyoming County get a break
and will actually experience a
tax decrease of -5.88 % in the
coming year. Tom Melone, the
districts nancial manager,
said the total value of Wyoming
County property has increased
and has an inverse relationship
to the tax rate.
Board president Mark
Kornoski and board members
Bo Kreller and Karen Masters
voted against the tax increase.
The owner of a Lake-
Lehman property valued at
$150,000 in Luzerne County
can expect to pay $60 more
in taxes for the coming year.

McGovern said part of the bud-

move, the board appointed an

Imagination flourishes in this home-
owners garden. A fairy garden
resides in this wheelbarrow, com-
plete with entrance archway, stone
walkway, miniature plants and ani-
mals just waiting for the fairies.
Were caught with our pants
down, said Dallas Township
chairman Frank Wagner after a
presentation by township engi-
neer Tom Doughton.
Doughton told Dallas
Township supervisors they
must hurry if theyre going to
take advantage of their 2011
community development block
grant. The $100,000 grant
must be spent by October. He
explained the lengthy process
which included engineering,
bidding and getting federal
approval.
According to Doughton, the
money has been sitting for
two years and now the board
has limited options because
of time constraints. But he
named two projects which
would meet federal guidelines
and which could be approved
and completed in the given
amount of time.
The rst project described
by Doughton is a footbridge
near the Kunkle Fire Station
to replace an old bridge taken
down several years ago. He
also said that improvements
to Old Tunkhannock Highway
have already been approved.
After discussion, the super-
visors gave the go-ahead to
both projects.
They then discussed possible
projects for the 2014 $100,000
grant available for use by the
township. Doughton said that
new federal guidelines severe-
ly limited the ways the 2014
money could be spent.
Attorney Mark Van Loon
presented a proposed zon-
ing change for Misericordia
University. Van Loon said that
the university is presently in
two different zones and that
neither t. The university
retained a consultant to pro-
pose an institutional zone
which would make more sense
for the university.
Board vice-chair Liz Martin
had reservations about the
amount of control the town-
ship would have over devel-
opment if the zoning changes
were implemented.
The supervisors agreed that
a public meeting will be held to
discuss Misericordias zoning
proposal. Planning commis-
sion members, zoning board
members and other interest-
ed township ofcials will be
included in the meeting.
According to Van Loon, the
objective of the new zoning
proposal would be to restrict
the impact of the university on
surrounding areas. But he said
the proposed zoning change
would give the university more
latitude within its boundaries.
Resident Tom Stires made
a presentation to the board
about problems with runoff
on his property, citing many
contacts he has had with
Roadmaster Martin Barry.
Doughton remembered
there was a stormwater ease-
ment property near the Stires
home.
Stires said that stormwater
is no longer running through
that easement. He believes
that cutting back the berm on
the easement would solve the
problem. Im asking for some-
thing to be done, he said.
Solicitor Thomas Brennan
said that before the proposed
SALDO (Subdivision and
Land Development Ordinance)
amendment can be voted on, a
public hearing must be held.
The time and place of that
hearing will be advertised.

Former Ross Elementary
Principal Donald James
will serve as princi-
pal at Lehman-Jackson
Elementary School, follow-
ing the retirement of long-
time LJ principal Marilyn
Glogowski.
Resident Ellen Boyer, of
Ross Township, questioned
the appointment before the
school boards vote. She
said, Our principal will be
dividing her attention.
Superintendent James
McGovern replied that
most of the districts prin-
cipals do double duty,
adding, This is going to
work.
When Boyer asked about
hiring a principal who had
never taught, McGovern
said, I believe in this deci-
sion. Im going to leave
Ross in great hands.
Two board members,
James Welby and Richard
Bombick, voted against the
appointment.
A stipend of $7,324 will
be added to Bednareks
present salary of $55,676.
The stipend will be paid
in two installments and
will be based on sat-
isfactory evaluations.
Concerned high school
chorus members attended
the meeting because they
fear their chorus teacher
would not be replaced.
McGovern said that one
music position will be elim-
inated but chorus programs
in both elementary and sec-
ondary will continue. He
said the present plan was
to move an elementary
chorus teacher to the high
school. There will be one
less music position in the
district in the fall.
The board appointed
Jeffrey Shook as athletic
director at a stipend of
$10,000. It also accepted
the retirements of Mary
Goode, Richard Morgan,
Lee Sikora and Jeffrey
Smith.
The boards approval
will allow the following
positions to be advertised:
Newspaper advisor, math-
ematics department chair,
Student Council advisor,
7-12 mathematics/physics
teacher, secondary reading
teacher, elementary special
education teacher, second-
ary special education teach-
er and a full-time secretary.
After the meeting,
McGovern defended the
selection of Bednarek for
principal.
He explained that two
years ago Governor tom
Corbett made changes
which allow those with
masters degrees in busi-
ness to serve as superin-
tendents and principals in
Pennsylvania school dis-
tricts.
He also said the present
budget reduces the num-
ber of teaching positions
by three and feels it is fair
to make a reduction in the
number of administrators,
as well.
Bednareks appointment
will combine two adminis-
trative positions into one.
Board president Mark
Kornoski added his sup-
port to McGoverns choice.
If the man says its gonna
work, its gonna work.

remains to be done but
the spirit of these two

this project.

Shavertown, spoke at the

ing that Judy Rimples
involvement in develop-
ment of the trail came
about all because she
wanted to ride her bike
from Hildebrandt Road to
the Susquehanna River.
Rimple, who will be 73
years old in September,
reiterated Albrechts
statements in her accep-
tance speech, paying
homage to the hundreds
of volunteers who have
pulled weeds, cut trees
and worked diligently
to open the 5.8 miles of
trail that run from behind
the Knights of Columbus
building in Luzerne
Borough to Lower
Demunds Road in Dallas
Township.
She talked about law-
yers, accountants and
industrialists who have
volunteered their exper-
tise to work with the
Anthracite Scenic Trails
Association (ASTA) in
acquiring easements
along the way and bragged
that the organization has
never had to purchased a
piece of property.
What we have every-
body has loved, she said,
paying tribute to her hus-
band for supporting her
passion.
This trail is all about
community spirit,
Rimple continued. To
dream is to plan and gath-
er together people who
care deeply about our

OBITUARIES
DAMA presenters were interrupted
with frequent questions during a presen-
tation to Jackson Township residents at
the township building. The topic was a
proposed cooperative project between
their company and SCI-Dallas. The
meeting was held after the regular
supervisors meeting.
According to Larry
Spaciano, executive direc-
tor of DAMA, the project
would consist of using
SCID land to install and
operate machinery which
creates mulch from yard
waste. SCID would benet
from the project by receiv-
ing mulch to aid in its
garbage composting project. Spaciano
called it the perfect cooperation
between state and local government.
One resident said of the plan, I see
no benet to me. She had concerns
about increased trafc in the township.
Spaciano explained that the yard
waste deposited at the township build-
ing would be taken away and good qual-
ity compost would be brought back for
residents use.
Another resident wanted to know if
the project would present any security
issues since the project will take place
close to the prison.
Presenters showed images of the pro-
posed site and also provided their study
of the noise levels which would be pro-
duced by the machinery.
Ofcials of DAMA met each objection
with careful answers.
Finally, supervisor Tim Evans said,
If theres not a benet, the supervisors
wont let it happen.
Although the presentation was made
at a supervisors meet-
ing, supervisors pointed
out that the proposed
project is a zoning issue.
No application has been
made to the planning
commission or zoning
board.
The township also
moved one step closer to
a drug and alcohol policy
for employees. The board of supervisors
gave township solicitor Jeffrey Malak
the go-ahead to send the nal policy to
their insurance carrier.
Malak pointed out that the new policy
includes both pre-employment proce-
dures and random testing of employees.
Supervisors awarded a contract to
RCH Services for a stormwater project
on Timbergrove Road. The winning bid
was for $7708.
Residents complained about zoning
violations at several residences and
supervisors said they would look into
specic problems.

* It is still not known who
made the following sage
observation: The differ-
ence between involvement
and commitment is like an
eggs-and-ham breakfast: The
chicken was involved; the
pig was committed.
* If you wanted to use fos-
sil fuels to equal the amount
of energy released by the sun
onto the Earth, youd have to
burn 550 billion tons of coal
every day.
* Lightning isnt solely
a phenomenon of Earth:
Astronomers have noted
lightning bolts on Jupiter,
Saturn, Uranus and Venus.
* In 1915, the average
annual income for a family in
the United States was $687.
* You might be surprised
to learn that the name Adam
isnt actually a proper name
in the classical Hebrew lan-
guage; its a generic term for
a human being.
* If youre planning a visit
to the village of Chester in
the United Kingdom, be glad
youre not from Wales. In
that town, the law says that
any Welshman found within
the city walls after sunset
may be shot with a longbow.
* In Germany, cacao was
used for medicinal purposes
long before it was used to
make chocolate.
* It is, perhaps, unsurpris-
ing that the first duty-free
airport shop those favored
sources of tax-free liquor
was in Shannon, Ireland.
* It was in the very early
years of the 20th cen-
tury when, in his Devils
Dictionary, Ambrose Bierce
defined a corporation as an
ingenious device for obtain-
ing individual profit without
individual responsibility.
* In Alabama, every pur-
chase of a deck of playing
cards is subject to a special
10-cent tax. Those who sell
the cards must pay a $1 to $3
license fee.

* On July 7, 1852, according to Sir Arthur Conan Doyles sto-
ries, Dr. John H. Watson is born. Coincidentally, the author died
on this day in England at the age of 71. His rst Sherlock Holmes
story, A Study in Scarlet, was published in Beetons Christmas
Annual in 1887.
* On July 3, 1863, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg,
Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lees last attempt at breaking the
Union line ends in disastrous failure, bringing the most decisive
battle of the American Civil War to an end. Exhausted, both armies
held their positions until the night of July 4, when Lee withdrew.
* On July 5, 1946, French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring
two-piece swimsuit at a Paris swimming pool. A Parisian showgirl
modeled the new fashion, which Reard dubbed bikini, inspired
by a U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the
Pacic Ocean earlier that week.
* On July 4, 1954, Marilyn Sheppard is beaten to death inside her
home in Cleveland. Her husband, Dr. SamSheppard, claimed to see
a man with bushy hair eeing the scene, but the authorities charged
Sheppard with killing his pregnant wife. Sheppards case provided
the loose inspiration for the hit television show The Fugitive.
* On July 2, 1964, in a nationally televised ceremony, President
Lyndon Johnson signs into law the historic Civil Rights Act.
The Civil Rights Act met tough opposition in the House and a
lengthy, heated debate in the Senate before being approved.

AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL
BMT Senior teamworks on changing its fate
BILL TARUTIS | THE DALLAS POST
Back Mountains Greg Petorak, front, is safe at third base as he collides with West Sides Marty Michaels on an errant throw in American Legion baseball action.
The 2013 American Legion base-
ball season has been a trying one for
the Back Mountain program.
Back Mountains Senior Legion
team began working on changing
that with consecutive wins June 16
and 17.
After losing its rst seven
Wyoming Valley League games, Back
Mountain pounded opponents on
consecutive days, climbing out of the
cellar and past both teams into ninth
place in the 11-team league.
Back Mountain remains winless
within the league on the Legion Prep
level and has a losing record in the
Youth Legion league.
Injuries have contributed to the
tough start.
Brian Stepniak, the leading hitter
and leading pitcher on a winning
team last year and a major contribu-
tor on a championship squad in 2011,
has not played. The recent Dallas
High School graduate and University
of Hartford recruit is not playing this
summer because of a wrist injury on
his pitching arm.
Pat Condo, a fourth-year team
member who just nished his rst
year at Wilkes after graduating from
Holy Redeemer, has taken over as the
teams most effective pitcher. He got
the teams rst win on the mound.
Greg Petorak, Nigel Stearns, Deep
Patel, Dylan Pilger, Jon Strausser
and Connor Balloun are also back.
Stearns is batting better than .400
to lead the team. Nick Oley, who has
a team-high ve RBI in nine games,
and Strausser are both over .300.
Scott Bean has been the teams
workhorse pitcher while Condo has
the best earned run average at 1.11.
After losing the opener of a Fathers
Day doubleheader to Mountain Post
A, 4-1, at Misericordia last Sunday,
Back Mountain posted its rst victo-
ry with a 9-0 win in the second game.
Back Mountain made it two
straight with a 10-0 romp over West
Side Monday at Misericordia.
Were hitting better and were
playing better defense, too, sasid
manager Tom Evans.
Two straight shutouts also showed
progress from the pitching staff.
A couple of our pitchers have
been injured, Evans said. Now that
we have Nigel Stearns back pitching,
that will help.
Condo threw a two-hitter shutout
with seven strikeouts in the rst vic-
tory.
Back Mountain nished off West
Side in ve innings when Stearns
and Balloun combined on the two-hit
shutout. Stearns struck out seven in
three innings while Balloun struck
out two over the nal two.
Stearns also had four hits in the
win over Mountain Post A when
Balloun drove in three runs and Oley
drove in two.
Strausser, who scored three times,
and Oley, who drove in two runs, had
three hits each against West Side.
Petorak drove in two runs and scored
two while Patel had two hits and two
runs.
The weather has disrupted the
schedule at times for the Youth
Legion team that started 3-5 under
manager Leo Orlandini.
The Prep Legion team is managed
by Jay Strausser.
