VOLUME 14, NUMBER 24 Week of November 5, 2009
On Thursday, October 29, at the Coolbaugh Municipal
Building, Women’s Resources of Monroe County held a
vigil against domestic cruelty. Some cool stuff happened
there, including presentations and a time of sharing how
lives have been touched by domestic cruelty. Below is just
a bit of the information that was shared.
How to end violence against women & children
Work for full equality be tween men and women in society and in per-
sonal relationships.
Examine the ways we legitimize male violence.
Understand that what it means to ʻbe a manʼ is de fined by society.
Start on the playground.
Unplug boys and girls from violent media.
Promote good sports etiquette & hire coaches committed to nonvio-
lence.
Do not use ʻlike a girlʼ or ʻlike a womanʼ as a put-down.
Encourage athletic activities that involved cooperation, fun, physical
health and camaraderie.
Teach children how to settle conflicts peacefully.
Recognize that verbal and emotional cruelty is also violence.
Understand that love does not involve control or ownership.
Remember:anger is a feeling; violence is an action.
Do not express feeling with fists.
Teach boys and girls effective, respectful ways to ex press frustration,
sadness and anger.
We are all role models. Be nurturing, love and caring.
Do not belittle, humiliate or hit children.
Advocate for anti-violence laws and enforcement.
Recognize that the availability of guns increases lethal violence.
Ask local and elected officials to take action.
Teach your daughters that respect is just a minimum. Teach your sons
the same.
Teach boys and girls to communicate clearly in relationships, and that
ʻnoʼ really does mean ʻno.ʼ
Question rape myths.
Recognize that alcohol and drugs feed violence.
Never excuse behavior by saying ʻboys will be boysʼ
Confront homophobia – it pushes men into being tough.
Do not use ʻgayʼ as a put-down.
Recognize that individual violence is supported by social systems
based on power and control.
Praise gentle boys.
Encourage children to trust their instincts; believe victims and children.
Support your local domestic violence and rape crisis center.
The second phase of
changes in Economic Devel -
opment in Tobyhanna
Township from the 1930-40s to
today is being shown at the
display cabinet of the
Historical Association of
Tobyhanna Township at the
Clymer Library, located on
Firehouse Road in Pocono
Pines. This phase includes
past and current activities from
Pocono Pines and Pocono
Summit.
Tobyhanna Township main-
tained a fairly even population
from the 1920s into the early
1960s of about 1,000 people.
In the late 1960s recreational
developments started arriving
and today the population is
approximately 7,350 with con-
siderably more folks here in
the summer season.
The display features five ele-
ments: township facilities, edu-
cation, transportation, resorts/
recreation, and commercial
activities. Over the past 60 to
70 years dramatic changes
have taken place. The display
features scenes from the earli-
er period as well as what is
going on today in those areas.
It is a well-done project that
should be seen by both young
and old.
HATT was organized in 1995
and seeks to record and dis-
play changes in historical fea-
tures of the township. The
organization meets monthly
from April to November, usual-
ly at the community room of
the Clymer Library on the sec-
ond Wednesday. The public is
invited to attend the meetings.

The November meeting of
the Historical Association of
Tobyhanna Township (HATT)
will be held on Wednesday,
November 11 at 10:15 a.m. at
the Clymer Library on
Firehouse Road, Pocono
Pines. The meeting, which
coincides with Veterans Day,
will feature a speaker from the
local American Legion post as
well as recollections by mem-
bers of the audience.
It is appropriate that the
audience will be reminded of
the origin of Veterans Day,
which originally was called
Armistice Day, as it signaled
the end of hostilities of World
War I on this date in 1918.
As veterans of World War II
are now in their early 80s and
older, a few of these will be
present to share some experi-
ences.
HATT was organized in
1995 with the purpose of col-
lecting, narrating and display-
ing historic events and activi-
ties in Tobyhanna Township.
Meetings are held on the third
Wednesday of each month
from April to November. The
public is invited to attend.

November meeting of HATT to feature Veterans experiences
As we enter one of the most
beautiful times of the year in
the Poconos, we are reminded
that leaves and snow are on
the way. All those beautiful
leaves must fall and all those
ski slopes need to be covered
with snow. Many people from
around the northeast come
each year to see the beauty
we enjoy each day.
While Mother Nature has a
way of dealing with the falling
leaves and snow, it creates a
great concern for some of our
neighbors who cannot physi-
cally remove them from their
sidewalks, driveways and
lawns. That is where you, your
family and friends, can
become real helpers and
make a positive difference in
the lives of our local handi-
capped, disabled elderly
neighbors. Please volunteer a
few hours and make a big dif-
ference in the lives of those
who cannot remove the leaves
and snow that cover the side-
walks and driveways.
RSVP, the Retired and
Senior Volunteer Program,
has joined nearly 2,000 volun-
teers who contribute their time
and energy to support and
assist others in our communi-
ty. Our volunteers have assist-
ed over 150 non-profit organi-
zations in Monroe County in
order to improve the daily lives
of all out neighbors. You do
not have to be a senior citizen
to participate; in fact we
encourage intergenerational
volunteers; so bring the family,
your church group and class-
mates.
If you care to volunteer in
any capacity, please call the
office at 420-3747. Director
Norma Fagan will find the per-
fect way and place for you to
volunteer in a way that will
make life better for all those in
our community.
The fall baking program has
been resumed at Saint
Nicholas of Myra Byzantine
Catholic Church and many of
their famous handcrafted eth-
nic foods will be offered for
sale. Every first Saturday of
the month pirohi will be sold
from the church located on
Route 940 at Commerce
Street, Pocono Summit from
10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Mostly
pirohi stuffed with potato-
cheese mixture will be avail-
able. However, because of
many requests there will also
be available pirohi stuffed with
prune, cabbage and sauer-
kraut on a limited basis or as
the supply lasts. The church-
made pirohi are sold at a cost
of $6 per dozen.
“As the winter approaches
and the holidays draw near
weʼve have many requests for
our ethnic foods,” said Father
Michael Salnicky, pastor.
“Weʼve re-started our fall bak-
ing program and so weʼll also
have available kolach (poppy-
seed and nut rolls). And if peo-
ple what to learn how to make
these great foods at home we
will also be selling our Saint
Nicholas Church ethnic cook
book. They make great gift
items,” he said.

MJ’s at the Allen
Main St., Annville, PA
by Seth Isenberg
College towns are usually a
good place to find interesting
restaurants. By college towns I
mean communities that are
dominated by the school.
Annville is one of these com-
munities, being host to
Lebanon Valley Co llege. On
Sunday about 6 p.m. we were
passing through Annville on
the way home, and we were
hungry.
There’s only one main street,
so we drove up and down, and
spied a cute little restaurant
beside the town’s movie the-
ater. We pulled over to check it
out, found there were some
sandwiches and lighter fare,
and this would do nicely.
The place was named MJ’s
at the Allen—the name of the
movie house. It turned out to
be a modernized and updated
snack bar for the theater, along
with an internet cafe and art
gallery. We were looking for
something light, so this
seemed ideal, if we could only
find a place to park. It took us
two circuits of town streets
before we could find a space
within a block. It turned out that
the movie-goers had taken
most of the near spaces.
Once inside we found the
restaurant existed on counter
service, so we ordered a
smoked turkey sandwich with
horseradish cheddar cheese
on wheat, $6.50, plus a latte,
$3, and a slice of pumpkin
cake, $1.50. The latte and
pumpkin cake were served
over the counter, and we took
them to a table on a raised
platform alongside a wall of
local art displayed for sale.
Having dessert served first, we
started with that, but switched
to the sandwich when it
arrived. I had also been given
a tall glass of sweet-tasting tap
water.
It was a clever integration of
movie lobby and basic snack
stand with a full-blown coffee
shop. There was plenty of pride
in the place, and a wall full of
“Best of” awards at the entry
from Harrisburg-area media—
Best Indepen dent Theater,
Best Coffee house, etc.—for
the past few years.
The menu included salads,
soups, pastries, ice cream,
cappucino, Italian sodas,
steamers, etc., and it looked
like a fun place that we’ll add to
our list, as our journeys take us
through Annville.
The movie Amelia was play-
ing was playing on the big
screen, and in the washrooms,
which were shared by the the-
ater, the movie soundtrack was
playing. So, it was a bit discon-
certing to step into the men’s
room and hear the sounds of
airplanes and crashing. Ruth
remarked that on her trip there
were radio calls searching for
the aviatrix.
One other item of note—
high above the main seating
area there was a “Laughing
Sal” funhouse puppet. This
antique is apparently in full
working order, the laugh track,
now on CD (formerly on 78
RPM records).Patrons can ask
the staff to turn it on, though at
the time we were there, there
was a mix of students, parents
and townfolk, and some of the
students were obviously study-
ing with their laptops, so it
would have been especially
annoying. Some other time,
perhaps.
They accepted cash, and
there was an ATM machine in
the entryway. Hours were listed
as seven days a week,
Mondays 5-11 p.m., Tuesday-
Sunday 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m..
PS–The movie theater had a
show stage, with an up coming
jazz performance being pro-
moted on the marquee.

Itʼs done—actually, almost done.
The leaves on the maple tree in our
back yard still beautifully golden,
now are mostly lying upon the lawn
and patio, on the roof of the house,
and of course, in the rain gutters.
Within a matter of days, the tree will
be bare.
Iʼve been raking up as many as
possible, piling them in the yard and
putting them up against the curb out-
side in the street where the top of
the tree hangs over the pavement. I
am reminded that I actually like rak-

Ruth and I had gone shopping after

headed for our car, and home.
Back home, we unpacked the
bags to find that weʼd apparently left
a bag containing the Peetʼs coffee
and the Polar seltzer somewhere.
We checked the vehicle that weʼd
taken to Wilkes-Barre and found it
empty. After double-checking at the
house on Friday, I realized that I had
left the bag at the grocery store. This
is not exactly a senior moment,
more of a middle-aged one, but with
all the stresses of the week, Iʼd done
something that Iʼd never done
before, because Iʼm the one who

usually double checks to see that
Iʼve gathered everything.
We found the receipt, and call ed
the store, and de scribed the bagʼs
contents, three items including the
precious coffee. The evening man-
ager recalled putting these items
back on the shelves, not long before
my call, and she told me to come
back with my receipt, and pick those
items up the next time I was in the
area. I did that over the weekend,
and am now back in my usual mode
of double-checking of groceries, and
Ruth is now properly caffeinated.
Saturday Ruth had volunteered
her time for her library, and I did rak-
ing and errands and some work at
the office, and some work on the
road. I used the time driving to look
for whatever remaining fall colors
might exist. There isnʼt much, but
occasionally there will be a tree or a
bush in yellow or red. The rest
seems to be the brown that oak
leaves get, or nothing at all, just
bare branches. It was a trip be tween
Blakeslee and Mount Pocono made
in a moderate rain that reminded me
that summer is finally over.
Yes, thereʼs baseball for Phillies
and Yankees fans, but really itʼs time
to start putting away summer cloth-
ing. Itʼs also time to break out the
Thanksgiving decorations. Inflatable
ghosties and ghoulies and spooky
stuff now come down, to be re placed
by inflatable turkeys. No, Iʼm not
serious, since all of you know that as
far as decorating is concerned, the
next holiday is Christmas. Spooky
Sno opies get re placed by those with
Santa hats. Iʼd like it if there was
more time spent decorating for
Thanksgiving, which I consider to be
a much nicer holiday than
Halloween. Hallo ween is about sell-
ing stuff, with not a little bit of the
“gimmies” thrown in, especially on
trick-or-treat night. Our Rotary Club
gave away nearly 500 hotdogs, plus
many cups of hot chocolate and
cider.
It rained heavy enough to delay
the start of trick-or-treating on
Saturday night. I waited until the rain
let up to take some photos of the
Halloween night goings-on before
arriving to help the Rotary Club.
That evening tired me out. The extra
hour of sleep was very well used.
Sunday, the weather report said
sunshine later in the day. This was
the last day of the PA Renais sance
Faire season, and weʼd set aside
time to attend. Our arrival was much
earlier than normal, and appreciat-
ed, as the crowd was not yet heavy.
We were able to be in close on
some shows, including the terrific
tournament joust—a display of skill
and very entertaining, which we will
look to see again next year. And we
were almost standing on the chess-
board.
People turned out as the after-
noon wore on, but with the sun set-
ting early, the temperature dropped,
and I went from wearing my Renais -
sance Faire T-shirt to wearing my
sweatshirt to wanting another layer.
It was a great day for costumes.
Weʼre now counting the days again
until next Augustʼs opening days.
We were home too late to listen to
the Eagles, except for the final
score, a big win; Penn State? Also a
big win; and later that night, the
Phillies? Oh well…

4:30 p.m. on 11-2, a 20-
something man stole a purse
from a shopper at Kinsleyʼs
ShopRite, then fled in a silver
Saturn Aura, PSP-F.
PSP-F is investigating an
identity theft incident—some-
one opened a Sprint account
using information of a 60 y.o.
Effort woman.
The Pocono Plateau is not
high enough for some
PMRPD on patrol at the
WalMart in Mt. Pocono made
contact with a 22 y.o.
Tobyhanna woman who was
having a dispute with her
boyfriend while at the store.
Further investigation found that
she had a hypodermic needle,
a silver spoon, cotton swabs
and a cloth cord—items knows
as a “kit” for heroin users. She
will be charged with possession
of drug paraphernalia, 10-13,
6:46 p.m.
A vehicle code violation led to
a traffic stop at 8 p.m. on 10-18
on Route 940 at Long Pond Rd.
The driver and passenger, a
50-something couple from
Royersford, PA, were found to
have been smoking marijuana.
The driver was arrested for
possession of a small amount
of the drug and some parapher-
nalia, PMRPD.
At 3:04 a.m. on 10-24,
PMRPD officers on patrol spot-
ted a car stopped alongside
Route 940. Its lights were on,
and its engine running. Police
stopped to investigate and
found the driver unconscious.
The car was still in drive…
When awakened, the 24 y.o.
Mt. Pocono woman was seen
to be drunk. She could barely
stand, and admitted that she
could not do any field sobriety
tests, then refused to try. She
also refused a blood test.
Police took her to HQ and
processed her and also called
her parents, to whom she was
released. DUI charges will be
filed.
PMRPD was called to Kmart
at 4 p.m. on 10-27 to deal with
a Scranton-area couple, ages
26 and 37, who were caught
trying to steal video games
worth nearly $245. The 37 y.o.
man had tried to discard hypo-
dermic needles and empty

search of their car, though,
found another needle and more
Baggies. He was charged with
criminal conspiracy, tampering
with evidence and shoplifting.
She was charged with criminal
conspiracy and shoplifting.
Both were taken to the county
jail.
PMRPD was called to a
report of a fight in Pocono
Farms East, Coolbaugh Twp. at
12:44 a.m. on 10-31.
Participants fled before police
arrived, so officers began a
patrol of the area. Finding a
young man walking along the
road, they stopped to speak
with him. He provided a false
name. Police found him to be
drunk, and underage (about
16). They took him home,
learned his identity, and
released him to his mother. He
will face charges via Monroe
County Juvenile Probation of
underage drinking and giving
false identification to police.
12:47 a.m., another PMRPD
team made a traffic stop in
Blakeslee corners and found a
29 y.o. Buck Twp. man who had
a bit of personal pot in his pos-
session. He will be charged.
4:30 a.m., PMRPD stopped a
car on Route 940 in Pocono
Summit for a traffic violation.
Officers found three 20 y.o.
men in the car, all of whom had
been drinking. A consent
search using PMRPDʼs K-9
located 14 bags of marijuana in
a backpack. One of the men
faces charges on the drugs
(heʼs from Long Pond), and the
other two for underage drinking
(Long Pond and Albrightsville).
5 a.m., a Pocono Farms East
man had friends up for the
weekend for a hunting trip. One
of the men became drunk, and
started to cause problems. The
homeowner asked 30 y.o. Peter
Molo, of Allentown, to leave. He
refused. The homeowner and
another man tried to force Molo
out of the house, but Molo
fought with them, refusing to
leave, and was hurt during the
struggle. The homeowner then
called the PMRPD for help.
Police arrived to find Molo visi-
bly drunk, and with dried blood
beneath his nose. Police will
charge Molo with defiant tres-
pass. PMR EMS was called to
take Molo to the hospital for
treatment.
6:15 p.m., PSP-F found a car
that had been driven off Route
715. Stopping to investigate,
the driver of the car showed
signs of being drunk. He was
arrested on suspicion of DUI,
and taken to the hospital for a
blood test. Charges are pend-
ing the results.
Also, PSP-Lehighton was out
between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. on
10-30 and 31 with a roving DUI
detail in Monroe and Carbon
Counties. They stopped 51
vehicles, issued 12 tickets and
29 written warnings, and found
five drivers suspected of DUI.

down… or not
10-24 9:40 a.m. PSP-F is
investigating the crash of a
Ford sedan driven into an
embankment and tree in Kidder
Twp. by an 80 y.o. NY driver.
She was not hurt.
2:10 p.m. PSP-F is investi-
gating another one-car crash
into an embankment before
stopping rubber side up. No
one was hurt.
10-27 11:05 p.m., PSP-L
fished two 18 y.o. girls out of an
upside down car (rubber side
up) off Route 335 near
Saylorsburg. The driver lost
control of her car on a wet road-
way and over-steered, knock-
ing into several mailboxes
before overturning. No one was
hurt.
10-28, two cars clipped each
other on Golden Slipper Rd.
near Reeders at 4:44 p.m. Both
towed. One driver taken by
ambulance to the hospital,
PSP-F.
10-29, 16 y.o. Penn Forest
Twp. driver started a turn from
Route 903 onto Old Stage Rd.,
near Albrightsville, then
changed his mind. The driver of
a car following had started to
pass the boyʼs sedan. He ran
his car into the side of her Kia.
She was hurt and needed an
ambulance ride to the hospital,
PSP-F.
10-31 2:45 p.m. an 18 y.o.
Effort driver turned his ʼ09
Nissan Vera rubber side up
(and partially in a stream) after
missing a curve on Borger
Hollow Rd. He was unhurt and
is charged with driving too fast
for conditions, PSP-L.
PSP-L in seeking a car and
driver involved in an accident at
midnight on 11-1 off Memorial
Drive near Dotters Corner Union
Cemetery. The car missed the
turn at the cemetery and left the
road during the beginning of a
spin, which took it into the grass
at the cemetery about 90ʼ, clip-
ping six headstones. The car
became stuck on one of these.
Itʼs thought that the car was
pulled out of there by an SUV or
4x4 pickup truck. PSP-L is look-
ing for a red/maroon vehicle
with damage to the passenger
side, and some undercarriage
damage, too. The driver is likely
to be a local.
An 18 y.o. driver became
impatient while driving Route
115 behind a Martz bus. She
decided to turn left off onto
Gilbert Rd. but didnʼt look
before she committed to her
turn, and her car was struck by
an oncoming Dodge pickup
truck. Fortunately, no one was
hurt. Both vehicles needed a
tow, 5:10 p.m. on 11-1, PSP-F.
11-2 7:10 a.m., a traveler
became flustered as her car hit
the concrete median at exit 284
and her front tire went flat—she
then locked her keys in the car.
PSP-F arranged for a tow.
PSP-F fished a 69 y.o.
Saylorsburg driver out of her
mini-van after she drove off
Route 715 and into a tree at
11:39 a.m. She needed to be
flown to Lehigh Valley MC for
trauma treatment.
And… three deer–related
accidents: 10-28 5:46 p.m. I-
80, 10-29 8:35 p.m. also I-80,
10-29 9:43 p.m. on Route 209,
and 11-4 5:44 a.m. where the
driver, in swerving to miss the
deer, hit a utility pole and a
parked car; plus one rear-
ender, also on I-80 10-25 at 7
p.m. No injuries.
