n Saturday, May 14, the Waverly Com-

dren aged 8 and under, took place immediately
following.

Way to waddle
Whether she is busy handling an ac-
count for Happenings Magazine in
Clarks Summit or wrapping up a black
tie affair for the Abington Business and
Professionals Association (ABPA), Ro-
semary Nye is as charming as she is
determined to see the Abington-area
association thrive. Thus, her position as
this year’s president of the organization.
“It’s not my first time
being president,” Nye
said, stating that she held
the office in 2005. “I
never left this organiza-
tion and stayed on the
board for many years
and also served as secre-
tary.”
Nye mentioned that
she has “tons” of rea-
sons why she stayed on
the board. “I like being
able to give back to this community.
Being president allows me the opportu-
nity to meet business owners and people
in the community who support business
owners. The Abington community is the
pride of Northeast PA.”
As for the reason why she opted to
take on the challenge of a second presi-
dency, Nye thinks for a moment. “That’s
a hard question. The timing was right
and there is a lot that needs to be done in
the Abington area. It’s rich in a lot of
cultural events for all ages, and our
group promotes business and commerce.
We’re a partnership in the community.”

FUN ON THE RUN
Editor’s Note: On Layton
is an occasional series of
personal accounts from
lifelong Justus resident Jo
Ann Walczak.
Constancy, continuity,
stability: the legacy of lives
lived for generations on
Layton Road in Justus.
With the world rushing
headlong into change and
tumult, the momentum has
stalled in this place where
families have raised chil-
dren, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren and
have shunned the lure of
movement and resettlement
in other parts of the coun-
try.
The institutions of stabil-
ity in Justus have always
been the school, the church
and the fire company, and it
is those three basics of Jus-
tus life that cemented Lois
White and her husband Bill,
or William A. Jr., and their
son Bill, or William H., to
the community. The Whites
have the honor of having
served the schools of their
district for three gener-
ations and the volunteer
fire companies for four
generations. Lois White’s
roots were planted firmly in
Justus soil in the later half
of the 19th century. Her
father, Harvey (Jack) Shen-
nen, was born and grew up
in the family farmhouse on
Rovinsky Road, which in-
tersects with Upper Layton
near the current site of No-
vitsky’s Garage in Justus.
Shennen and his two
brothers, Walter and Wil-
liam, were entrepreneurs of
the most “cutting edge”
variety.
Enthralled with the me-
chanical wonders of the
day, Shennen left Justus to
establish a Dodge/Plymouth
automobile dealership in
Peckville in the early 1900s.
With the advent and excite-
ment of aviation sweeping
America, Shennen’s broth-
ers turned their farm into
an airport, the first and
only one in Justus, called
the Mid-Valley Airport.
Local legend has it that

Clarks Green Assembly of God is sponsoring a clothing drop-

munity. St. Pauly Textile installed one of its clothing collection
sheds in the church parking lot for the community to use as a
drop-off for clothing. The clothing will be distributed all over the
United States and world to those in need. This program keeps
clothing out of landfills, helps those in need, and gives $40 for
every 1,000 pounds of clothing that is donated to the church. The
money that is received for the clothing is being put into a Mis-
sions Trip Fund which will be used to financially assist those
going on short- term mission trips. St. Pauly is a family-owned,
upstate N.Y.-based company that collects useable clothing,
shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, linens, blankets and drapes. For

The Clarks Summit Borough
Council wants drivers in the
borough to remember that they
are required to yield to pedestri-
ans in crosswalks, according to
state law. Police Chief Lou Vi-
tale explained that drivers who
violate this lawmay be subject
to two points on their license
and a $110.50 fine. It is especial-
ly important during this time of
year because as the weather gets
nicer, more and more people are
walking around town, according
to council.
Pedestrians to have to cross in
the crosswalk for this lawto take
effect. If they cross outside of
the crosswalk, drivers have no
obligation to yield.
Clarks Summit Borough
Council emphasized that every-
one needs to abide by this lawin
order to keep the community
safe.

CLARKS SUMMIT- The
American Cancer Society
Relay for Life of Abingtons
is 17 days away. Many people
are preparing, including a
committee of about 15
Abington Heights High
School students. Eighth grad-
er Melanie Fricchione of
Clarks Summit is also work-
ing to prepare middle school
teams.
Fricchione, who supervises
middle school recruitment, is
also on the Luminaria Com-
mittee for the second year.
But she has been involved
with Relay for Life for a long
while. She is following in the
footsteps of her brother, Pat
Fricchione, 19 and her sister,
Katie Fricchione, 21, who
were both part of the com-
mittee while they were in
school.
Both still attend Relay for
Life and their parents also
volunteer. The middle school
teams areset, but those who
want to support the cause can
attend the Relay to volunteer
or make a donation. Although
middle school students have
participated previously, this
year there are four teams with
about eight students on each.
The teams consist of mostly
eighth grade students, but
sixth and seventh graders can
join. Each student pays $10 to
sign up and then has to raise
at least $100.
“Most of us have raised
well over $100 though,” said
Fricchione.
Fricchione said her favorite
part is the Luminaria ceremo-
ny, during which candles are
placed around the track to

SOUTH ABINGTON
TWP. - South Abington
Township Supervisors ex-
pressed dismay concerning
the Abington Regional
Wastewater Authority (AR-
WA) votes against obtaining
outside requests for propos-
als regarding their plan to
renovate and rebuild the
wastewater treatment plant
to meet new federal require-
ments. The authority voted
6-2 to continue with its al-
ready employed engineering
firm, Gannet Fleming, at a
cost of $32 million paid to
the firm.
Currently, the cost of the
plan is expected to triple the
quarterly sewer costs for
South Abington, Clarks
Summit and Clarks Green
residents. Residents’ quar-
terly sewer bill in 2007 was
$60; however, that is expect-
ed to reach about $175 to
$180 per quarter by project
completion in 2015.
South Abington Township
Supervisors had hoped to
obtain additional, outside
requests for proposals in an
attempt to keep the project
as cost effective for the com-
munity as possible while
simultaneously adhering to
the Regional Act 537 Plan.
Township Manager David
O’Neill pointed out that
while authority members are
willing to obtain bids for the
authority’s insurance plans,
they would not agree to
obtain bids regarding the
sewer project. “The opportu-
nity was there for them to
save a substantial amount of
money,” he said.
Township Supervisor Jo-
seph Sproul expressed the
Supervisors’ frustration
concerning the fact that “we
appointed them,” he said.
“ARWA should be serving
the public.”
Giles Stanton added,
“We’ll never know if we
could have saved the resi-
dents money.”
Additionally, the township
has plans to replace the
rubber padding for the
splash park at South Abing-
ton Park. Concrete and
Landscape Designs, a North
Carolina-based company,
will replace the padding for
$44,500. The original pad-
ding was expected to last
about seven years, and cur-
rently it has been used for 11
years. Supervisor Mark
Dougherty stated that the
splash park “is well worth
what we paid for it, and it
gets a lot of use.” Super-
visors hope the park will be
ready by May 27 for the
Memorial Day holiday.
Finally, O’Neill thanked
Township Recycling Coor-
dinator Susan McLane, stat-
ing she “did a wonderful job
doing the Recycling Pro-
gram Performance paper-
work.” He said the township
will receive a grant in the
amount of $42,377 reflecting
a collection in 2009 of 1547.2
tons of residential and com-
mercial recycled materials.
Supervisors voice dismay over ARWA plan

“I don’t knowhowmuch
manipulation of the controls
there will be. That will be up to
the pilot,” said Seamans Airport
owner Bill Dobitsch.
“They’ll be able to get at least
a feel for what the controls are
like,” added Hunt.
In addition to giving people
an opportunity to get used to
being up in the plane, it is also
designed to give thema chance
to get used to the airport.
“Alot of people are kind of
intimidated by the airport, and
are like, ‘AmI allowed to go
here?’ but this is a public-use
airport. If they want to come
and watch airplanes any time of
the year, they can,” said Do-
bitsch. “And, I have a picnic
pavilion here. People can come
up, have picnics and relax.”
After Saturday, those in-
terested can continue to pursue
a pilot’s license at Seamans
Airport. The airport has a flight
school; lesson cost about $166
after tax.

NEWTONTWP. - Newton Township super-
visors passed an ordinance that will place a 10-
ton weight limit on vehicles traveling in the
township during its monthly meeting May 9.
The ordinance is in response to the state’s re-
cent passage of a similar ordinance that placed a
10-ton weight limit for vehicles on all state roads.
Those in attendance questioned howthe town-
ship would be able to enforce the ordinance with-
out scales to weigh vehicles that may be in vio-
lation.
Supervisors explained that, with the ordinance
in place, if the township gets enough complaints
on a road, they can request assistance fromthe
state.
“If you do it and you want to get the state in-
volved on a road where you are having a partic-
ular problem, you can do it. If you do not pass
this ordinance, you can’t do it, period, that’s it,”
said Supervisor John Pardue.
The ordinance will cost the township $5,500
for newsigns to post the weight limit.
In other business, members of Community
Counts were in attendance at Monday’s meeting.
The group recently drafted the community rights
ordinance, with the help of the Community Envi-
ronmental Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit orga-
nization, to ban gas drilling in Newton Township.
The supervisors discussed the ordinance with
those in attendance, and solicitor Joe Sileo, who
gave his initial reaction to the ordinance.
“Since the last meeting, I’ve had a chance to
look at this and look at it with some colleagues,
and we looked at it with respect to general princi-
ples of municipal law, and we’ve looked at it with
respect to state lawand the precedent that’s out
there, and it’s my opinion that this lawis not
legally viable,” said Sileo.
In addition to Sileo, the ordinance has been
given to the township engineer, solicitor, plan-
ning commission and the Gas and Oil Envi-
ronmental Impact Committee, who will give
their opinion on it.
The Gas and Oil Environmental Impact Com-
mittee was appointed during the supervisor’s
work session prior to the meeting. The commit-
tee is comprised of Gary Martenson, Sue Sher-
man, Linda Nealon, Leon Stankowski, TimHa-
beeb, Gregg Raino and Bob Naegele.
“Basically, it will be the same as our planning
commission. They are on their own, they will
meet, they’ll make recommendations, they will
research what they are recommending, and the
recommendations they will then submit to us for
our review,” said Pardue.
In addition to the community rights ordinance,
the committee and the township supervisors will
be reviewing other ways to protect the township
and regulate drilling. Other methods discussed
included tightening zoning laws.

GLENBURN TWP. – Since 1908, the
Waverly Woman’s Club members and
community works have gone hand in
hand, and at the 2011 spring luncheon,
held on a sunny afternoon May 4 at
Patsel’s in Glenburn, reports on annual
activities and sponsorships followed
the same model.
President Mary Price
welcomed members and
guests and shared with
them individually themed
favors of brightly colored
seed packets and hand
painted miniature plant
containers. After a lun-
cheon of bisque, quiche,
field greens and olive
bread, where conversa-
tions and friendships
blossomed, officers shared reports on
annual community contributions.
Among topics was The Attic Shop, an
upscale consignment shop located on the
lower level of the Waverly Community
House that is hosted by the club mem-
bers.

There are five major events
in the Abington community
sponsored by the association,
one of them being the Clarks
Summit Festival of Ice. This
year marked its seventh anni-
versary. There is also the Sum-
mer Fest that typically takes
place over the Fourth of July
weekend. Nye explained that it
gives parents a chance to learn
important skills such as the
proper way to put a child in a
car seat or the opportunity to
have their children finger-
printed. “It’s all supported by
business owners as a free ben-
efit of living in this area.”
Nye also mentioned the Fall
Fest and its scarecrow displays
throughout the community
and Home for the Holidays
event, which includes a parade
complete with Santa and free
snacks and cider at local busi-
nesses hosting open house.
However, Nye believes the
association’s signature event is
The Men in Black, where
local men in the community
model tuxedos to raise funds
for community projects and
organizations.
“I’m passionate about The
Men in Black event. It’s why
I’m on the board,” Nye said.
According to Nye, the idea
for the fundraiser has only
been made possible by the
generous donation of Nancy
Sarno and Sarno and Sons
Tuxedos. providing the tuxe-
dos for the business men to
model. This year marked its
second year of being able to
extend the outreach and being
able to give a portion of the
proceeds to Marley’s Mission.
When asked why this partic-
ular charity, Nye explained,
“The last time I was president
of the organization, Matt
Burne was a board member.
The estate of Matt Burne do-
nated the land to be used to
build a horse therapy ranch for
physically abused children and
their families. It will soon be
opening on Edella Road (in
South Abington Township.)
Because he did a lot for the
Abington community, there
was no better fit when it came
time to pick a charity. This is
what ABPA does.”
Nye talked about the associ-
ation as being part of the wel-
come mat to businesses new
to the area. Something also
important on this president’s
agenda is finding volunteers.
“It’s a nonpaying position that
gives members a chance to do
some good in the community
and to embrace and encourage
to give back,” Nye said.
Interested volunteers can
contact Laura Ancherani,
Abington Business and Pro-
fessional Association exec-
utive director, at 570.587.9045
or go to theabington.org for
more information.
In addition to serving as the
association president, Rosem-
ary Nye is married to Dennis
Nye, owner of Nye Jewelers in
Dickson City. A Scranton
resident, Nye prides herself as
being mother to son Jaime, 26,
son Tyler, 23, and her 15-year-
old daughter Katerina. She

DALTON -At the Dalton
Borough Council meeting
held April 14, the council
voted to pass an ordinance
to borrow $400,000 from
Fidelity Bank for road re-
pairs in Dalton.

Montgomery also said that
by passing this ordinance,
they are not locked into
borrowing $400,000. Solic-
itor Frank Bolock explained
that until they actually sign
with the lender, they can
change the payment terms.
Borough member Lorraine
Daniels made a two-part
motion. The first part of the
motion is that the council
gets approval from the state
to borrow $400,000. The
second part is for the coun-
cil’s finance committee is
instructed to talk with Fidel-
ity Bank for a lesser loan
and payment schedule if the
project costs less than
$400,000. The board
agreed.

CLARKS GREEN- The
May 9 meeting of the
Clarks Green Borough
Council drew some debate
regarding the draft Act
537 plan from the Abing-
ton Regional Wastewater
Authority (ARWA).
The council had previ-
ously voted to submit the
draft of the plan to their
planning commission, as
well as to the general pub-
lic, for review then com-
ment. The plan and com-
ments would then be sent
back to the authority.
However, at a recent
meeting, council voted to
rescind that decision due
to a South Abington Twp.
supervisors decision to
hold off on submission of
the plan to their planning
committee. Clarks Green
Borough Council decision
was described as “an act
of solidarity” with South
Abington Twp. The deci-
sion to hold off submis-
sion of Act 537 was made
due to council’s wish that
the plans for the new sew-
er plant be competitively
bid.
Planning Commission
Chairman John Earley
stated that council needed
to redouble its efforts to
push for bidding.
Solicitor Al Weinschenk
mentioned that Act 537
and the issue of bidding
were separate and that
council needed to submit
the Act 537 plans to the
planning committee and to
the public in order for the
council and the sewer au-
thority to comply with
state guidelines. He also
stated that the risk of
fines or penalties was pre-
sent.
Council President Marie
King stated that, “The
board members of the
Abington Regional Waste-
water Authority are a little
more engaged in this re-
view process then any of
us.” She explained that the
board was comprised of a
civil engineer and an envi-
ronmental attorney, among
others, and that they are
not concerned with poli-
tics, simply with getting
the job done. She also
addressed the issue of the
cost. “I think most of our
residents know that paying
less doesn’t always pay
off. Sure, you’re going to
get a better rate, but are
you going to get a better
job?”
The council voted five
to two to turn the draft
plan over to the Planning
Commission and also to
the public for review and
comment.

CLARKS GREEN- The May
5 meeting of the Abington
Council of Governments
(ACOG) discussed a draft
letter to Governor Tom Corbett
concerning establishing a mu-
nicipal impact fee for commu-
nities impacted by Marcellus
Shale drilling.
Council President Lynne
Earley distributed the draft
letter for the members to edit
before showing it again to their
municipal councils. As the
letter explains, the impact fee
would offset the damages done
to roads by drilling trucks and
any environmental damage.
After changes to the letter are
made, the participating munici-
palities can decide if they are
interested in supporting the
letter.
They also discussed the pro-
gress of the council creating a
database to help track earned
income tax monies. Clarks
Summit Representative Her-
man Johnson contacted an
accounting company that
would be interested to speaking
at the June meeting about how
a database could be created and
maintained. School board and
council members from all the
participating municipalities
would be invited to attend.
On May 28, Clarks Summit
will be unveiling its Veterans
Memorial Monument.

FACTORYVILLE - Lacka-
wanna Trail student Kim
Martin, Factoryville, re-
cently won an essay contest
from the district rotary of
the Trail Rotary Club. She
and other Lackawanna
Trail students competed
against 33 other schools in
northeastern Pa. by writing
essays answering the ques-
tion: “Service above self –
what does it mean?” Martin
wrote in her essay that ser-
vice does not have to be
about doing a large project.
“It’s good to do small, ev-
ery day things that don’t
seem important, but they
are,” said Martin.
Trail Rotary Club Presi-
dent Barbara Petty and
member Rose Opshinsky
judged the contest.
The judges chose Martin
’s essay to be the winner
and she was presented a
$1,000 award from the club
at Gin’s Tavern May 10.
This is the f irst time Mar-
tin has entered an essay
contest.
“I’m very happy and sur-
prised,” she said. “I can’t
believe that I’ve won out of
all the essays.”
Martin is a junior at
Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr.
High School, where she has
been a part of the Madrigal
chorus, an auditions-only
chorus, for two years.
“Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr.
High School is very im-
pressed with Kim Martin.
She is an intelligent stu-
dent who does great
things,” said Principal John
Rushefski. “Also, I would
like to thank the Trail Ro-
tary for supporting Lacka-
wanna Trail students. They
have been an amazing
group that is always there
for our students.”
Writing is one of the
courses Kim would like to
take in college. She also
aspires to be a pastry chef

JERMYN- Students enrolled
in engineering classes at Lake-
land Jr./Sr. High School can
now earn college credit, thanks
to teacher Bill Freeman and
Project Lead The Way. Free-
man has been teaching at La-
keland for five years, and his
engineering program recently
received national certification
from Project Lead the Way, a
non-profit organization that
encourages students to apply
classroom math and science
skills to real-life projects.
Project Lead the Way has
more than 35 university affil-
iates, including Penn State
University. According to Free-
man, Penn State brought the
idea of the project to the atten-
tion of the superintendent who
then contacted Freeman. The
project is now in its second
year at Lakeland and has re-
quired Freeman to go for year-
ly training to be able to teach
at the required level. There are
currently 60 students involved
in the program at Lakeland,
and Freeman hopes to have
more than 100 students in the
program next year.
“The students really thrive in
the program,” said Freeman.
Thanks to a partnership with
leading engineering company
Lockheed Martin, the students
are able to work with state of
the art equipment and tech-
nology that is used in the busi-
ness. The students have also
participated in job shadowing
and some have been offered
summer internships at local
engineering firms. Freeman
said the program is giving the
students “a leg up in the mar-
ketplace.”
As the program progresses,
Freeman anticipates Lakeland
becoming a “feeder school”
for local universities and hopes
that students will be able to
complete at least the first two
years of a college program
closer to home. To earn col-
lege credit while at Lakeland,
students must maintain a re-
quired attendance record and
overall grade point average, as
well as pass a final exam. En-
gineering is currently one of
the best job markets to enter.
According to National Busi-
ness Roundtable, there is a
need for 400,000 graduates
with engineering degrees, but
there are currently only
265,000. Through this pro-
gram, these students will hope-
fully be able to be among those
working to fill the gap.

The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce Tomorrow’s Leader’s Today Program
hosted a program April 26 at Keystone College. More than 500 high school students at-
tended this youth leadership seminar on anti-bullying. This half-day seminar, “Let’s Make
a Change….Stop Bullying!” addressed 500 middle school students from15 different
school districts. It identified and explained the types of bullying as well as discussed the
risks associated with bullying from three different angles - the target, the bystander, the
bully. “Today’s seminar is a true example of youth leadership in action. TLT class of 2011
did an outstanding job and today’s messages will now be carried to 13 different middle
schools of our region,” said Nicole Barber, program director.
Tomorrow’s Leaders

ABINGTON JOURNAL/ALEX SEELEY
Tomorrow’s Leader’s Today Program class of 2011.
FACTORYVILLE - At the
Lackawanna Trail School
Board work session held May
2, curriculum coordinator Jan-
ice Joyce described a new read-
ing program, which is called
LEAD 21, for students from
kindergarten to grade two.
Joyce said that teachers have
told her that the series they are
now using, from1997, is get-
ting antiquated. She said that
she and the teachers, through
the process of elimination,
chose a series that would best
help the students to read well.
“It boiled down to two series
and in the end, LEAD 21 is the
winner of what we looked for-
,”said Joyce. “It’s unique be-
cause LEAD stands for Litera-
cy Equity Accelerations and
Differentiations in the 21st
century.
She mentioned that this series
teaches phonics, vocabulary
and fluency comprehension.
Joyce described LEAD 21. She
stated that students are split into
four levels of reading - inten-
sive, strategic, benchmark, and
advanced. All four reading
pieces have the same theme but
are written differently to match
the reading level that the stu-
dent is able to read. “Everyone
can discuss something that they
read on a particular topic.
There’s decodable books so
they can practice phonics
skills,” said Joyce. Joyce men-
tioned that LEAD 21 will also
have a reading coach visit the
district and observe lessons
taught by the teachers. Joyce
passed around samples of
LEAD 21 textbooks. She men-
tioned that the sales rep, a for-
mer kindergarten teacher, is
allowing the board to pay half
of the cost this year and the
other half next year. The cost is
$50,000 for six or seven years
of LEAD 21.
“I think it will catch a lot of
struggling readers early and
translate into fewer problems
across the board,” said superin-
tendent Matthew Rakauskas.
At the Lackawanna Trail
School Board meeting May 9,
Joyce repeated the pros of
LEAD 21. President Daniel
Naylor said, “The district is in
need of a new reading series. I
would make a suggestion that
we actually table this.” The
board agreed to accept LEAD
21. Rakauskas said that he will
add LEAD 21 to the school’s
website in September.
In other business, Elementary
Principal Jeffrey Gregory an-
nounced that the 6th grade class
will have a talent show June 2
at 6:30 p.m. He also announced
a 6th grade recognition pro-
gram June 7 at 9:45a.m. in the
school gymnasium.
High school principal John
Rushefski discussed the May 6
prom. “It was a great night out
at the Radisson in Scranton and
a very good time,” he said. He
also mentioned that Class Night
for seniors will be June 8 and
the graduation ceremony June
10.

Bell Mountain, which runs
parallel to Layton in Justus,
Amelia Earhartcame to
Justus and the Shennen
airport to investigate. In
1945, the Shennens sold the
airport to Bill Hutchins of
Peckville, and the next
year, with 30 new airplanes
in the hangar, a fire broke
out that consumed all of the
planes and put the airport
out of business permanent-
ly. After numerous owners,
the barn on the old Shen-
nen farm eventually became
the Stage Coach Inn.
Today, Shennen’s grand-
son, Bill (Lois’s son) makes
his home on Layton next to
the house where his great
uncles, the Shennen broth-
ers, lived more than 50
years before.
Bill and Lois White pur-
chased their home on Lay-
ton Road in 1947 because
they “wanted to be up the
country.” Their quaint Cape
Cod was the second home
built by Howard Detty, who
was responsible for con-
structing more than 30
homes on and near Layton
Road in Justus. It was a
time when everyone who
lived in Justus knew each
other well, and lives were
inextricably connected by
proximity and involvement
in church, school and fire
department activities.
Longtime Justus residents
Bill Priest, Duke Farrell
and Willard Bright worked
at the Olyphant power plant
in the late 1940s with Bill
White, and they encouraged
Bill White to move “up the
country” and join the Justus
Volunteer Fire Company,
where they were leaders.
Bill White’s father had
been one of the founders of
the Blakely Hose Company,
so it was natural that he
should get involved with
the fire company. He be-
came a trustee and chief
driver.
Bill and Lois White’s
first child, Bill, was born in
1947, and it was inevitable
that he too would become a
member of the fire depart-
ment. Sixty-two years later,
“young” Bill is still as pas-
sionate about fire fighting
and life saving as he was in
his teens when he entered
rescue service. Following in
his father’s footsteps, he
became the chief driver for
the Justus Fire Company,
its assistant fire chief, an
ambulance lieutenant and,
currently, a trustee.
He also served in the
Scott Hose Company as
ambulance captain for 28
years and as chief engineer
for 10 years. In addition, he
became chief of the “Dive
Rescue Specialists,” a dive
team serving Lackawanna
and Susquehanna counties
in active emergency water,
boat, and ice rescue. Later,
“young” Bill’s son, Billy
(William J.), became assist-
ant fire chief for the Justus
Company, making it a gen-
erational coup.
“Much of what we still do
is centered around the fire
company,” concluded
“young” Bill. Even though
a burning in his chest while
dragging hose at a fire re-
sulted in triple bypass heart
surgery, Bill remarked, “I
still do everything except
scuba diving. I run on all
the fires, but I don’t drag
hose as I used to.”
The community has bene-
fited not only from the ser-
vice of the Whites to the
volunteer fire department
but also to the local
schools. Lois White gradu-
ated from Mansfield State
College in 1944 and was
hired as Blakely High
School’s first home eco-
nomics teacher. Blakely
bought the Hurd house near
the high school to be their
home economics building,
and Lois was the first home
economics teacher to use
that facility. Her teaching
career was cut short,
though, when son Bill was
born; state law required
that female teachers stay
out of school for two years
after the birth of a baby.
Bill’s birth was followed by
son David in 1950 and
daughter Joyce in 1951.
Consequently, Lois White
was able to enjoy the life of
a Justus mother since she
ended up out of the class-
room until all three chil-
dren were in school.
Originally, the children of
Justus were educated in the
one-room school house on
Justus Corners until the
Scott School was built over
the mountain in Montdale
in the 1930s. It was in the
Scott School that Lois
White resumed her teaching
career in 1960 . Lois White
continued at the Scott
School until it merged with
Mayfield, Jermyn and
Greenfield Township into
the Lakeland School Dis-
trict. The home economics
program ended at Scott
with this merger, and Lois
White was moved into the
elementary classroom,
teaching second and fifth
grades at the former Scott
building and eventually in
the new Lakeland Elemen-
tary until her retirement in
1982. There are few Justus
students of the 1960s who
do not remember cooking,
apron making and sewing
with Mrs. White in the
Scott School.
Lois White became enam-
ored with sewing under the
guidance of her mother
Ruth Cure Shennen. Ruth
Shennen taught her daugh-
ter to sew when she was 7.
Today, at the age of 88,
Lois White has her sewing
machine tabled prominently
in a front window where
she can sew while watching
the activity on Layton.
Since the death of her
husband, sewing and paint-
ing have been the focuses
of her retirement activity.
In recent years, she has
sewn 355 homemade, cot-
ton lap throws in a variety
of colors and quilt-like pat-
terns. “I have given them to
all of my friends, relatives,
veterans, nursing homes,
church bazaars, and to the
Abington Manor as bingo
prizes.” In fact, anyone who
steps into Lois White’s
home will probably leave
with a gift from her sewing
machine.
Her devotion to teaching
was also a legacy from her
mother, Ruth, who lived
near Heart Lake but walked
from there to Jermyn High
School, where she taught
from 1907 to 1920. Ruth
Cure lived with a family in
Jermyn during the school
week and walk home for
the weekends. Eventually,
Ruth Cure married Harvey
Shennen, ending her long
distance treks to school.
These two generations of
teachers, in what would
become the Lakeland
School District, blossomed
to three when Ruth’s grand-
son/Lois’s son, Bill, later
taught in the Mayfield
building and served as head
teacher. Eventually he be-
came the district’s trans-
portation director, working
from the Lakeland School
District administrative of-
fices. Bill’s sister, Joyce
White Piedmont, became an
elementary school teacher
in the Lackawanna Trail
School District, where she
has taught for 37 years, and
brother David became an
industrial arts teacher in
Virginia. Honing their
teaching skills, Lois White,
son Bill and Joyce Pied-
mont continued their stud-
ies and all three received
their master’s degrees in the
same year.
As Lois White’s son Bill
reflected on his life in Jus-
tus, his memories raced
back to his Sunday School
class at the village church,
Mt. Bethel Baptist, down
the road from their home,
where he met with his life-
long friends Marsha James,
Joan Pregnar, Tom Foun-
tain, Jim Willcutt, Virginia
Hughes and Nancy Ycz-
kowski. It was there that
the most intense interests
and goals of his life began.
“Ken Davies was my
teacher,” Bill White re-
membered, “and he had a
big impact on my life.”
Davies was the fire chief
in Justus, and he encour-
aged Bill White to become
active in fire rescue. It was
also Davies’ influence that
spurred Bill White’s in-
terest in business. Davies
had a dog boarding and
feed business in Justus
where Bill White worked
every summer and through-
out college. When Davies
expanded to include west-
ern wear at his store, he
asked Bill Davies if he
would like to buy the jeans
and western wear business,
so in 1979 Bill White pur-
chased the business, ex-
panded into work wear and
became one of Justus’s
prime businesses, K-9 Cor-
ral, still in operation just
off Layton on Justus Boule-
vard.
But Bill White’s entrepre-
neurial spirit began long
before the K-9 Corral. It
bloomed on the very pave-
ment of Layton Road in the
late 1950s to 1960s.
There were few young
men in Justus at the time
who knew the populace of
Justus as well as Bill
White. “I knew everyone,
and I could remember
names. I would ride my
bike three miles every
morning delivering papers,”
and when the family spent
summer months at their
cottage on Chapman Lake,
Bill White would ride down
from there to complete his
Layton Road paper route.
“I’d rarely pass a car, and
whoever did pass, I knew
them. Jack and Ethel Hun-
ter’s dog King and Eddie
Bonczkiewicz’s dog Fuzzy
went with me on my route
for three years. Once I met
a bear at Paul White‘s
house. I pedaled fast and
took refuge in Violet
Owens’s house.”
Today, Bill White, an avid
hunter, still seems to know
everyone, including the
wildlife, in Justus and envi-
rons, and he always finds
time to “shoot the breeze.”
Today, he is the manager
of Waverly Township; pre-
viously, he did a similar job
as manager for Scott Town-
ship, the larger municipal-
ity to which Justus belongs.
Even as a teenager, Bill
White worked for the town-
ship.
“I plowed and shoveled
cinders out the back,” Bill
White said. “I was a cinder
spreader…on Layton
Road.” It didn’t matter what
job Bill White worked, “I
always wanted to do the
best I could. I am happy
with almost everything, and
I’ve made a reputation. You
will get more than you
asked for when you hire
me.”
Lois White’s memories
are rich with stories of her
five grandchildren and two
great-grandchildren, camp-
ing trips across country
with the family and sum-
mer trips to the cottage at
Chapman Lake, but always
Lois White and son Bill
come back to life on Lay-
ton Road.
“This absolutely has to be
one of the best places to
raise a family,” Bill White
said. “There was a commu-
nity spirit.”
Lois White added,
“There’s a feeling of safety
here,” with Bill and his
family living only a mile
north of her on Layton and
daughter Joyce living a
mile south just off Layton.
Lois White sits ensconced
firmly in the epicenter of
her Justus world between
her children on Layton.

It’s amazing what 30 hours
without electricity can do to a
family. Like many Waverly and
Dalton residents, we lost our
electricity one Thursday morn-
ing a fewweeks ago, when what
seemed like a tornado ripped
through our community.
I picked Lauren up from
dance class on my way home
that afternoon. We found we
couldn’t get home due to road
closures. We drove around the
area, trying to find an open
route to our house, while we
looked with shock and awe at
the trees lying on top of houses
and in yards. At one junction,
when we had to turn around yet
again due to the orange cones
and “road closed” sign, we
spotted the WBREvan and Eric
Deabill standing next to it with a
microphone.
“Mom, look, it’s the guy from
the news!” Lauren wanted to
stop and say hello but I reasoned
with her that we needed to find a
way home.
We finally arrived home after
I got brave enough to simply
drive around the orange signs. I
was inside gathering flashlights
and candles while Lauren was
outside playing with the neigh-
borhood kids. They were using
her iPod Touch to filmeach
other in front of broken tree
limbs while they reported on the
stormdamage.
“This is Lauren reporting
fromWaverly tonight where a
terrible stormwrecked lots of
trees today.” They played back
their “news footage” later and
all laughed hysterically when
they realized they’d spooked a
deer in the field behind them
who proceeded to hop away
frantically while they went on
reporting. They had so much
fun improvising the news that I
had the brief thought I wish I
could’ve been a part of it.
Doug and I sat quietly on the
couch in the front roomand
chatted about our day. There
was no noise fromTV, no sound
froma dishwasher or dryer. The
laptop had run out of its charge.
There were no distractions. I
leaned back and relaxed. This
was not something I was used to
on a weeknight during the
school year.
“It’s so quiet,” I said.
“It’s kind of nice,” he com-
mented.
Later that evening, Dani walk-
ed into the house after getting a
ride home fromgymnastics and
sawthat I had every candle we
owned set up on the table in
front of Lauren and me as we
read with flashlights. The room
glowed like a church on Christ-
mas Eve.
“Mom, this is so great!” Dani
said. “Can we play a board
game?”
Seeing the glee, anticipation
and candlelight flicker in her
eyes, of course I agreed. Lauren
and Doug were already up,
moving candles to the dining
roomtable while Dani excitedly
set up Rummikub. We played
for an hour until it was time for
bed. Because there was no tele-
vision or computer to entertain
me, I went to sleep with themat
9:30, the longest, best night’s
sleep I’d had in recent memory.
“Beep, beep, beep!” Fortu-
nately the cell phone alarm
worked despite my lack of ex-
pertise in setting it, and I was
shocked into another day with-
out power. Without television,
Facebook, hot showers, hair-
dryers or coffee to distract us,
we were all ready for work and
school in a fraction of the time it
normally takes. It wasn’t as
entertaining, that’s for sure. I
missed Matt Lauer, Meredith
and the Royal Wedding, but I
was amazed at howquickly we
were all ready. Even with the
kids prompting me to call and
text everyone we knewin the
Abington School District to see
if school was canceled, we were
sitting around waiting to leave
the house 45 minutes early. If it
hadn’t been for my caffeine
withdrawal that I knewwould
only be remedied by a drive-thru
after I got the kids to school, I
might have enjoyed the quality
time with the kids. We ended up
shooting baskets in the driveway
together before 8 a.m. to kill
time. Having free time in what
is usually a rushed morning
routine had been inconceivable
to me before this day.
More than once during those
many hours, I found myself
thinking about one of my favor-
ite childhood television shows,
“Little House on the Prairie.” I
tried to explain howgreat it was
to the kids.
“Pa would entertain the girls
with his fiddle, they would play
games and dance together. Ev-
eryone went to bed at dark and
woke at sunlight, on the same
schedule. They relied on each
other for company, entertain-
ment, discussion and even news,
instead of the TV, the internet or
their iPods. I bet it was sort of
nice.”
Of course, I was relieved to
come home that second evening
to lights, noise fromthe TVand
cold food we could cook. Sort
of relieved, that is.

regarding the evolution of
the auxiliary, the author
explained, “The necessity
and benefits of auxiliaries
to the fire companies
have become more and
more evident in recent
years. Wives and friends
of the local fire company
also realized that much
good could be gained in
our locality… In line with
this thinking, several la-
dies met and made pre-
liminary organizational
plans. It was decided that
the best source for in-
formation on forming an
auxiliary would be to vis-
it one already organized.”
The ladies attended a
meeting of the Auxiliary
to the Justus Fire Compa-
ny and the author noted,
“The ladies were most
cooperative and patient in
answering our many ques-
tions, so that we were
able to call our first
meeting for Sept. 18,
1951.”
Yablonski was one of
the women who visited
the Justus fire department.
The Clarks Summit aux-
iliary was named in mem-
ory of Joseph W. Hall,
who held the position of
chief from the first meet-
ing in 1912 until his
death in 1947 at the age
of 90.
From the beginning and
throughout the years, the
auxiliary’s mission or ob-
jective has remained con-
sistent: to assist the fire
company “wherever” and
“whenever” necessary.
For example, during the
Scranton floods of August
1955, they laundered hos-
pital linens. They have
rolled bandages, been re-
sponsible for some of the
ambulance chores, spon-
sored a brownie troop and
raised money to purchase
kitchen equipment and
other items for the fire
house.
Today they donate books
to the library in memory
of their members and
both then and now serve
lunches and coffee. Mem-
bers of the auxiliary also
assist at the fire compa-
ny’s monthly breakfasts.
“As always, we (the
auxiliary) do whatever
they (the fire company)
need us to do,” said aux-
iliary president, Gayle
Snell of Clarks Green.
“If there’s training, we
serve lunches and coffee.
That has always been the
same. Now at a fire, we
can’t just give refresh-
ments. There’s a staging.
Our volunteers are so pro-
fessional. When they
come out of a fire, we
can’t just give them a
glass of water. They need
to have their blood pres-
sure and everything taken
care of first… Back then
we just walked right up
to the guys with the hose
and gave them a soda.”
Currently the auxiliary
has 14 members, both
men and women. They
have had as few as six
and as many as 70 mem-
bers over the years.
“When we did our by-
laws approximately six
years ago, we changed it
to ‘anybody.’ The men are
amazing because not ev-
erybody wants to be out
all night with a fire but
when we have our flea
market, we need men to
help.”
Beginning in 1999, the
auxiliary has awarded an-
nually a $500 scholarship
to a senior who is active
in the fire company –
either auxiliary or a fire
company member.
“So far we’ve given out
$4,000. We wanted to
honor someone who has
given hundreds of hours
of service, including
cleaning the trucks.”
That money for the
scholarship is raised
through raffles.
The upcoming fourth
annual Flea Market and
Craft Show will be held
June 4, and is one of two
major fundraisers orga-
nized by the auxiliary
each year. A Cookie Walk
will be held in December.
At the upcoming flea
market and craft show
hosted by the auxiliary at
the Clarks Summit Fire
Company located at 321
Bedford St., bargain hun-
ters will find antiques’
dealers, flowers, collec-
tibles, crafts and a variety
of other items.
“People enjoy it and
each year we have more
and more people come
through,” said Snell.
Vendors may set up be-
tween 6 and 8 a.m. and
the market will be open
to the public from 8 a.m.
to 2 p.m.
Rental fees for the day
are $20 for an indoor
space and $15 for an out-
door space until May
25.An additional $5 will
be charged per space after
May 25.

What natural wonder of
Pennsylvania is approximately
50 miles long and almost 1,000
feet deep? It’s the Grand Ca-
nyon of Pennsylvania, of
course! Also known as Pine
Creek Gorge, this canyon offers
pristine vistas for all to enjoy.
Both National Geographic and
Sports Illustrated have featured
this jewel of Pennsylvania in
their publications, and nowthe
Dietrich is inviting you to see
the Grand Canyon of PAfor
yourself. That’s right. Join us a
scenic bus trip to take in the

we will experience 1.5 miles of
easy walking to Barbour Rock
in Colton State Park for views
of the canyon fromthe west
rim, enjoy a box lunch and take
a narrated, covered wagon ride
through the canyon. Then we
will visit the Leonard Harrison
State Park overlook for expan-
sive views fromthe canyon’s
east rim.
Before we leave Wellsboro,
we will visit the Wynkin, Blyn-
kin and Nod Fountain and have
free time to wander around the
town of Wellsboro. We will
leave the Dietrich at 7:45 a.m.
and will return around 7 p.m.

For most family members,
their father may be as important
to them as the late President
John F. Kennedy. This Father’s
Day, June 19, with the help of
Woods & Company, every Fa-
ther can enjoy the same com-
forts as a president.
Val Langan, who co-owns
Woods & Company with Nettie
Goldstein, said “The Kennedy
Rocker,” has been a big seller
for the store all year, especially
as a popular Christmas and
Father’s Day gift.
Manufactured exclusively by
the P&P Chair Company, “The
Kennedy Rocker” is made of
solid oak, and has a high cane
back, cane seat and steam-bent
back posts that curve around the
back. It is set low for comfort-
able elbow support and has wide
armrests for perfect balance.
“It’s still made the same way it
was made back when President
Kennedy used it,” said Langan.
“He used it for his back, and
it was really the only thing that
gave him pleasure for sitting. He
had a really bad back from the
PT109 accident that he had and
he ended up having back surger-
ies and that sort of thing, and
this is the only thing that gave
him relief,” she added.
The rocker was developed in
the 1920s by W. C. Page Sr., and
manufactured in their factory in
North Carolina. In 1953, Dr.
Janet Travell purchased the chair
and later recommended to her
patient, then Senator Kennedy,
that he use the chair.
The chair proved to offer
Kennedy much relief, and he
ended up purchasing several
over the years. They were kept
in places the president would
frequent, including Air Force
One and The Oval Office.
Eventually word of the rocker
spread, the chair became a pop-
ular item nationwide and still is
today.
“It’s probably our best- selling
rocker,” said Langan. “It’s prob-
ably a combination of…people
look for The Kennedy Rocker
because it has a history to it, but
it’s also the workmanship, and
because it’s made in America.”
“We made a commitment here
at Woods & Company to con-
centrate on American- manu-
factured furniture, so we try and
highlight those things that are
made in America.”
Langan mentioned another
interesting feature about the
chair: its size.
“…If you compare it to a
standard rocker, it’s more jumbo.
It’s really a fit for any size body,
so anybody can feel comfortable
in it. It’s not scaled down, which
is really great.”
The chair sells for $400 and
can be ordered finished in a
stain of the customer’s prefer-
ence.
The chair has to be shipped
from North Carolina, so those
interested should expect a one to
two week wait.

“Berlin1961: Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Most Danger-

in history, American and Soviet fighting men and tanks
stood arrayed against each other, only yards apart, at the
Berlin Wall. Neither leader really understood the motives of
the other and both tried cynically to manipulate events. The
author, a former editor for The Wall Street Journal and Ber-
lin bureau chief, bases his insights on a wealth of newdocu-
ments and interviews.

child and had been cruelly misdiagnosed. After a lot of red
tape, Vanya was adopted and brought to the United States by

SCOTT TWP. - Gary R. Ry-
man said it is pretty cool to be
the “center of the Oreo.” He is
the second generation in three
generations of firefighters.
“It’s neat because I got to
see what it’s like being the son
of a firefighter and being the
father of one,” said Ryman.
Forty-nine-year-old Ryman
just published his first book at
the end of April, titled, “Fire
Men: Stories from Three Gen-
erations of a Firefighting Fam-
ily.” His book, published by
Tribute Books, and edited by
Stephanie Longo, took about
four and a half years to write
and publish, said Ryman.
He currently is set to appear
at three book signings sched-
uled in the local area and New
York. The first will be May 20,
at Maiolatesi Wine Cellars on
Green Grove Road in Scott
Township from 6 to 10 p.m., in
conjunction with the Justus
Volunteer Fire Company Wine
Tasting Fundraiser. The sec-
ond will take place June 5 at
Kristofor’s in Endicott, N.Y.
And the third, June 24 at Tiffa-
ny’s Tap and Grill on Main
Street in Eynon from 6 to 9
p.m.
The book tells the stories of
events that he, his father Ri-
chard Ryman and his son,
Michael Ryman experienced
throughout their years with
fire departments. Some of the
stories are funny, while others
are very tragic.
Ryman explained, “It’s a
book for everyone. Everyone
can get something out of it,
even people who aren’t in-
volved with fire services at
all.”
Ryman is originally from
Endicott, N.Y., where he start-
ed with a fire company in
1977 at 16. He then attended
the University of Maryland,
where he was a “live in” or
“bunker” at the fire depart-
ment in Montgomery County,
Md. That meant he was al-
lowed to live there free of
charge, but was always on call.
The fire department he
worked for received about
1,500 calls per year. However,
now his son is a “live in” in
Maryland as well, and his fire
station gets about 9,000 calls
per year.
“It was tough doing that
with being in school,” said
Ryman. “There was probably
only one night a week where I
actually slept eight hours.”
Ryman has worked on the
Emergency Medical Service
(EMS) side of the business
and on the fire fighting side as
well . During his time in fire
services, he served as fire
chief, so he has seen it all.
After graduating from the
University of Maryland with a
bachelor’s degree in fire sci-
ence, he moved to Scott Town-
ship, where he worked for the
fire department for 25 years
and currently lives with his
wife, Michelle Ryman, and
their two children, Michael, 19
and Megan, 17. Ryman still
goes on calls occasionally. .
Ryman said, “I don’t go a lot
anymore. It’s a lot easier for
the younger guys to be on the
inside of a burning building.”
On why he decided to write
a book, Ryman said, “I
thought there were some in-
teresting stories, and I started
One storyRyman shared from
the bookwas about a family
friend who experienced a
small kitchen fire in her
house. Home at the time was a
girl of 16 or 17, Ryman said,
and instead of contacting the
fire department she called
Ryman. Luckily, the blaze did
not get out of control and they
later laughed about the sit-
uation.Ryman said the social
media website Facebook has
been useful in publicizing his
book. His publisher also cre-
ated a website at www.Fire-
Men-Book.com.
“Fire Men: Stories from
Three Generations of a Fire-
fighting Family,” at 280 pages,
is available from Tribute
Books online at Amazon and
Barnes and Noble for $10.95
and as an e-book. However,
Ryman does not think any
local bookstores have picked it
up yet because it is hot off the
presses.

In our 25 years of hearing care,
we’ve heard a lot of reasons how
our patients’ lives were changed
by wearing hearing aids. Now
we’re sharing them with you
because we think that just like our
past patients, once a personalized
solution is found, life only gets
better. This May, share the gift

cial effects. Campers will also
learn to shoot, edit and score
their own short films. This
class will be held from1:30 to
3:30 p.m. Admission to each
camp is $60. Call the Dietrich
at 570.996.1500 to sign up.
For adults, we also have a
couple of interesting class
offerings that are just around
the corner. For example, on
Monday, May 23, Esther Har-
matz will be teaching a Jew-
elry Making: Easy Attach-
ments workshop. From 6 p.m.
to 9 p.m., we will learn about
different types of jewelry
attachments and easy wire
wrapping techniques. Esther
will also show us how to
make neat loops and coils,
add bead embellishments, and
how to use a peg template.
While learning these skills,
we will create a bracelet and a
pair of earrings to take home.
Admission is $60 and all ma-
terials are provided. Prere-
gistration is required, so call
us at 570.996.1500 to register.
Last week I peeked in on
the jewelry class that Esther
offered at the Dietrich and it
looked like students were
having a great time. They
were creating unique silver
pendants and other pieces of
jewelry as they learned how to
work with silver clay. It is
amazing what you can do in
three hours with a desire to
learn and a great teacher.
As you can see, the Dietrich
is so much more than the
movies!

Dunkin’ Brands, Inc., the
parent company of Dunkin’
Donuts and Baskin-Robbins,
honored Northeastern Pa.,
residents Jerry and Sophia
Fives as the 2010 Dunkin’
Donuts Franchisees of the
Year -- one of the company’s
highest distinctions -- recog-
nizing them as top role mod-
els for Dunkin’ Donuts val-
ues and best practices.
“Jerry and Sophia are
seasoned leaders with high
standards for operational
excellence,” said Nigel Tra-
vis, Dunkin’ Brands CEO
and Dunkin’ Donuts Presi-
dent. “As such, our brand
management team routinely
turns to them for input on
new programs, products and
service enhancements. We
are proud to honor them for
representing the very best of
the Dunkin’ Brands system.”
For Jerry and Sophia,
Dunkin’ Donuts represents
family and the close-knit
community in which they
were both raised. High
school sweethearts, they
decided to pursue a future in
owning and operating a Dun-
kin’ Donuts franchise after
college, buying the business
from Sophia’s father. Togeth-
er, they learned the business
from the ground up.
“We are truly honored to
receive this award, not only
on behalf of our family and
employees, but also our
community which has been
so supportive of our business
over the years,” said Jerry
and Sophia Fives. “We are
fortunate to live and work in
Lackawanna County, and we
are proud to bring this recog-
nition back to our region.”
The Fives, who currently
operate four Dunkin’ Donuts
restaurants in Northeastern
Pa. and have a new location
opening in early summer on
Route 6 in Dickson City,
received their award at the
Dunkin’ Brands Franchisee
& Enterprise Awards event
in March at the John F. Ken-
nedy Presidential Library
and Museum in Boston,
Mass.

SCRANTON – Lackawanna
Trail’s Lauren Ellsworth and
Lakeland’s Tori Doyle and Al
Tuzze all earned return trips to
the Pennsylvania Interscholastic
Athletic Association Track and
Field Championships with their
efforts in Monday’s District 2
Class AA Championships.
Ellsworth and Doyle qualified
in two events each, but with
dramatically different approach-
es.
While Ellsworth earned a
chance to compete at Shippens-
burg University May 27-28 by
setting two meet records in
dominating efforts, Doyle made
it in two of the three girls’
events in which District 2 is
sending more than two compet-
itors to the state meet.
Ellsworth, a two-time state
medalist at 400 meters, won at
100 and 400 meters.
“That record has been there a
long time,” Ellsworth said after
posting 57.53 in the 400 to
knock one-hundredth of a sec-
ond off the 26-year-old mark
held by Debbie Moran of
Meyers. “I hadn’t done a sub-58
yet this season.”
Ellsworth ran the 100 on the
district level for the first time
and ran away with a record time
of 12.22 seconds.
Doyle advanced in each of the
two events in which she has
medaled in the past on the state
level.
The district is limited to two
Class AA competitors in each
state event, with two exceptions
– when a second-place tie can-
not be broken and when an ath-
lete finishes third or worse but
exceeds the state qualifying
standard.
Doyle finished third in the
highly competitive 110 hurdles,
meeting the state standard with
a time of 15.89. She was also
part of a three-way tie for sec-
ond in the high jump at 4-10.
Tuzze was unable to defend
his title in the shot put but qual-
ified for the state meet as the
second-place finisher in 48-10 ¼.
Doyle helped Lakeland finish
fifth out of 17 teams in the
girls’ standings. Lackawanna
Trail was 11th.
Lakeland was eighth and
Lackawanna Trail was last
among the 19 teams that scored
points in the boys’ meet.

KINGSTON– Josh Palmer avoided the
possibility of the District 2-4 Class AAA
boys’ tennis singles championship com-
ing down to a deciding third set.
Palmer rallied from a three-game def-
icit in the second set to take his fourth
straight District 2 title Friday afternoon
with a 6-1, 7-6 (7-1) victory over Wyom-
ing Valley West’s Steve Brand.
The Abington Heights senior won the
full District 2-4 tournament three out of
four years and was recognized as District
2 champion the other year as the district
player who advanced the farthest. The
last title proved to be the most difficult.
“I’ve never had to come back like that,”
Palmer said, “especially not in a district
final.”
Brand won the first game of the match
before Palmer took the next six to win
the first set. The second seed then took a
5-2 lead in the second set.
“He’s a great player,” Palmer said. “He
played like he had nothing to lose.
“It’s tough being the number-one seed.

CLARKSSUMMIT- Brown’s
Gymis offering the area’s youth
an opportunity to stay in shape
this summer.
The Clarks Summit gym
launched its newTeen Initiative
programMay15. Fromnow
until the end of summer, any
child between the ages of 12
and17 can sign up for a free
two-month gymmembership.
“What we’re seeing is if
you’re a high school athlete,
you pretty much get every-
thing,” said owner JimBrown.
“You’ve got the sports that
you’re in, you’ve got the coach-
es, you’ve got access to the
weight rooms, you’ve got
coaches in the weight rooms,
you pretty much got all kinds of
help. But, if you’re not a teen
that’s a competing athlete in
high school, you’ve got nothing.
“So it’s either all or nothing.
So, what we’re trying to do is
close that gap up, and give all
the teens a chance.”
Brown added that part of the
inspiration for the program
came fromthe thought of the
medical problems children who
do not exercise regularly are
forced to face.
“When you start hearing
about kids with type 2 diabetes
and they’re13 years old, this is a
chronic problemthat’s happen-
ing across this country. So,
we’re going to see if we could
help with the fight against that.
“And I was one of those kids
that was not in any sports. I was
too little to be in any sports…I
wasn’t obese, but sports were
not available to us... So, remem-
bering what that was like as a
kid, it seemed like a natural
thing to do for these kids.”
Those interested can sign up
at Brown’s Gymand must have
a parent or guardian present,
along with proof of age. An
assessment will then be sched-
uled for the child, which a par-
ent or guardian must also at-
tend.
“This will not be the normal
assessment I give my normal
clientele, it has different needs
to it. With that age group, Mom
or Dad need to knowfor them-
selves that they’re dropping that
child at a place where they can
be safe,” said Brown.
During the assessment, the
details of the programwill be
reviewed with the child and
guardian, as well the types of
supplements and drinks that the
child can purchase.
The child will also go
through a few, simple tests to
determine their flexibility, as
well as their strengths and
weaknesses.
Once signed up for the pro-
gram, participants will attend
an orientation that will be held
daily at a specific time, where
each child will be taught howto
use the equipment by the staff.
Members of the programwill
then have access to the gymon
weekends and until 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
“This is a way for us to give
back very significantly,” said
Brown.
“We can really affect each
kid, you can give a kid a proper
mentor, and they’re looking for
one. I can’t think of a better
summer experience for kids that
age to have. They can either go
find a mentor in a video game
someplace, where they’re blow-
ing people up, or they can get
off their butt, and go to the gym,
and in September, when they go
back to school, be in a whole
newcondition and shape.”
In addition to the Teen Initia-
tive program, a sports condi-
tioning class, which will begin
in mid-June, will also be avail-
able at a cost of $10 per child.
The class will cover weight
training, as well as stretching
and flexibility type exercises.
Those interested can sign up
for their two-month free mem-
bership any time between now
and August 15. Memberships
will end Oct. 15, even for those
who sign up after August 15.
Brown’s Gymis located at
100 South State St., Clarks
Summit. For more information

CLARKSSUMMIT- An
Abington Heights High School
senior setter leads the way for
the boy’s volleyball teamduring
the 2011season.
Eric Wasser, Clarks Summit,
compiled 45 assists, five kills,
two blocks, 11points, two aces
and six digs en route to a 3-2
victory over Lake-Lehman in
Abington’s latest match-up.
Behind Wasser’s senior lead-
ership, Abington Heights has
earned12 wins this season to
just two loses. The Comets also
won the 2011Tunkhannock
tournament.
Wasser’s love for volleyball
stems fromhis parents Eric and
Bobbi.
“My dad played for Abington
when he was in high school,”
Wasser said. “I had always
played with my parents and I’ve
just always loved playing when-
ever I can.”
In his senior season, Wasser is
set on winning the district
championship. Adistrict cham-
pionship will not come easily,
but Wasser admitted this is one
of the best parts about playing
for the Comets.
“Everyone always plays their
best game against us,” Wasser
said. “It seems like every team
steps up their play for us.”
Wasser also played soccer at
Abington Heights on a teamthat
lost in the district championship
game. His other hobbies include
running, playing guitar and
competing in Odyssey of the
Mind.
Wasser’s favorite athlete is
Bastian Schweinsteiger, who
plays for the German soccer
team.
“His creativity and pure deter-
mination on the field are in-
spiring,” Wasser said.
Upon graduating fromAbing-
ton Heights, Wasser will head to
Ann Arbor, Mich., where he
will become a Wolverine.
“I’ll be majoring in engineer-
ing at the University of Michi-
gan and plan on entering law
school to become a patent at-
torney,” Wasser said.
With the end of the school
year approaching, Wasser will
lead his teaminto the playoffs
with hopes of a successful post-
season.
“I’mnot sure what my great-
est accomplishment as a player
is yet, but hopefully the end of
this season will showme that,”
Wasser said.

CLARKS SUMMIT - Jason
Ratchford cites his compet-
itors, students and instructors
over the years for his success
within the sport of Brazilian
Jiu-Jitsu. Ratchford teaches at
Pridelands Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu,
919 Northern Boulevard,
Clarks Summit.
“All I really am is everyone
I’ve ever fought,” said Ratch-
ford.
Ratchford won first place
in both the medium-heavy
weight division and the abso-
lute (open weight class) divi-
sion at the New York Interna-
tional Open Jiu-Jitsu Cham-
pionship, hosted by the In-
ternational Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
federation in City College,
New York April 16.
The tournament draws in
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters
from all over the country as
well as Brazil, Europe, and
other nations. Ratchford had
victories both by submission
and points.
Ratchford said he under-
went a great deal of training
before the competition.
“I had to make sure I was
with the 180-194 pound
bracket. They weigh you two
minutes before the fight with
your gi (uniform) on, which
meant I had to be closer to
180 in order to weigh in. I
consulted and trained with
Tommy Casey of Crossfit in
Scranton, and I maintain a
very healthy diet with no
sugars.”
His training went well be-
yond diet and exercising. The
training even went beyond
Scranton. Ratchford went and
still goes to New York every
Thursday and Friday to train
under his master, a five-de-
gree black belt who goes by
the name “Jucao”. Ratchford
has a great deal of respect for
his master.
“The man’s like a min-
dreading anaconda. I’ve never
faced someone who could
read that well. He’s in his 50s
and could easily demolish
younger guys.”
Ratchford, a brown belt
himself, also explained the
ranking system in jiu-jitsu.

down and that’s been the
key to this team all year.”
The Lions trailed 5-3
entering the bottom of the
fifth. Blue Ridge pitcher
Jesse Pruitt hit Matt Flynn
to start off the inning.
Mason Mecke capitalized
and hit an RBI double
that cut the lead to 5-4.
After Pete Murazzi walked
Matt Aten hit an RBI sin-
gle to tie the game at
five. Bruce Benko walked
to load bases with no
outs. After a runner in-
terference call, Pruitt
threw a wild pitch, which
scored Murazzi to give the
Lions their first lead of
the game.
Tanner Holmes added to
the Lackawanna Trail lead
on an RBI double that
scored Benko and Victor
Rosa. Flynn capped off
the seven-run fifth with an
RBI single that gave the
Lions a 10-5 lead.
“We got base-runners,”
Peters said. “We made
them [Blue Ridge] make
some plays and we were
patient at the plate.”
In the top of the sixth,
Flynn replaced Holmes
after five inning of work.
Blue Ridge tried to claw
back into the game when
Jacob Roberts hit an RBI
single to cut the Lacka-
wanna Trail lead to four.
Later in the inning, the
Fighting Tigers threatened
with the bases loaded and
the tying run at the plate
but Murazzi worked out of
the jam. Chris Zawiski
lined out to centerfield
and Pruitt grounded out to
third to end the scoring
threat.
Devin Hawk replaced
Pruitt at pitcher in the
bottom of the sixth inning,
struck out two and kept
the deficit at four runs.
Flynn ended any chance
of a Blue Ridge comeback
when he also struck out
two in the top of the sev-
enth and didn’t allow the
Fighting Tigers to reach
base.
Holmes earned the vic-
tory after pitching five
innings. Holmes was sha-
ky in the first three in-
nings but he kept the Li-
ons in the game so they
had an opportunity to
climb back into the game.
He compiled six strike
outs while giving up eight
hits and four earned runs.
“I think he was a little
fired up because the team
knew what was riding on
this game,” Peters said. “I
think he had a little too
much adrenaline going in
the beginning but he set-
tled down and pitched a
great game.”
Zawiski hit an RBI sin-
gle in the bottom of the
first to give Blue Ridge
an early 1-0 lead. After an
errant throw on a pick-off
attempt at third in the top
of the second the Fighting
Tigers gained a two-run
lead. Pruitt hit a two-run
double in the top of the
third to give Blue Ridge a
4-0 lead.
Steve Miller hit a two-
run single in the bottom
of the third to cut the
lead to two. After a fiel-
der’s choice in the bottom
of the fourth and an error
in the top of the fifth,
Blue Ridge held a 5-3
lead before the Lions’
seven-run barrage in the
bottom of the fifth.
Lackawanna Trail will
face off against Western
Wayne at home in its final
regular season game be-
fore entering the district
playoffs. Peters said the
Lions have to work on
their defense in order to
succeed in the post-sea-
son.
“We can’t give other
teams extra outs especially
as you move forward into
the playoffs,” Peters said.
“Those teams are all good
teams and if you give
them extra outs it could
really hurt.”

FACTORYVILLE - Lacey
Croasdale, 18, has been playing
softball for three years. She lists
fielding and working together
with her teammates as her
favorite aspects of the sport.
Lackawanna Trail head
coach John Brander thinks her
speed and knowledge of the
game are her best skills on the
softball field.
“She is very fast and very
smart,” he said. “She does a
good job putting the bat on the
ball, and once she gets on base
she uses her speed to her ad-
vantage. She can steal just
about any base she wants, and
is very smart on the bases.”
The teamwas left with a hole
at third base after the gradua-
tion of Vickie Van Fleet. Bran-
der called upon Croasdale to
fill the gap.
“She had always played
shortstop, but we were in need
of a third baseman,” Brander
said. “I think third base is a
more important position in
softball than shortstop. She was
a little reluctant at first, but she
made the switch and turned
into possibly the best third
baseman in the league.”
Brander thinks the senior’s
fearless attitude contributes to
her solid play at the hot corner.
“You can’t be afraid of the
ball playing third base,” he said.
“On bunts you need to take a
fewsteps in. She has a tough
frame of mind.”
Croasdale credited the coach-
ing of Brander as a big reason
she has developed into a solid
player.
“He’s helped a lot with my
hitting,” she said. “Last year, I
didn’t have the best batting
average. He told me what I was
doing wrong and taught be
exactly what to do. I thank him
for everything he’s done for
me.”
The Wyoming County resi-
dent continues to hone her
game in the off season, even
while participating in other
sports.
“Throughout the winter, I
play indoor field hockey,” she
said. “I go to the batting cages
to improve my hitting. I have a
coach at Battaglia’s that helps
me with my batting.”
Croasdale think it’s critical
for the young players to devel-
op a good relationship with the
veterans early in their careers.
“The seniors try to help the
younger girls so we can com-
municate on the field,” she said.
Brander thinks the senior is
one of the hardest workers he
has ever coached, and an excel-
lent example for the younger
girls to follow.
“She is probably one of the
hardest workers on the field,”
he said. “At practice she is
always asking for extra repeti-
tions taking ground balls and
extra swings. I’ve never heard a
complaint out of her. Her work
ethic is pretty much un-
matched.”
The Lady Lions have won
two of their last three games,
and Brander is confident they
can continue to win if they
keep doing what has made
themsuccessful.
“We need to drive in base
runners when they are in scor-
ing position and keep coming
up with clutch hits,” he said.
Croasdale, the daughter of
Rich and Lisa, plans on attend-
ing Mansfield University to
play field hockey and study
criminal justice. She was a
four-year member of the field
hockey teamand participated
in track for one year.
The Lady Lions (5-7) will
play their final regular season
game at Western Wayne High
School May18 at 4:30 p.m.

FACTORYVILLE - The
Lackawanna Trail High School
volleyball team went from
finishing 5-7 in 2010, to the
Lackawanna League cham-
pions, with an overall record of
11-1 in 2011.
At the center of the team’s
turnaround has been three-year
varsity starter, middle blocker
Lyle Sweppenheiser.
“(His job is) Mostly to shut
down the other team’s big hit-
ters. He’s our first line of de-
fense on the block,” said head
coach Deb Wozniak.
“But he’s also our biggest
offensive threat. That’s pretty
normal, at that position they’re
usually your best hitter and best
blocker.”
Sweppenheiser leads the
team in kills, and his play this
season is one of the reasons the
Lions will be ranked, at the
very least, second, when the
district playoffs begin May 23.
The high seeding means the
team will play their first game
at home.
The junior has been a force
on the team since his freshman
year, when he said he took to
the game very quickly.
“I’ve always had an interest
in it. There’s no junior high
program, so I was on the track
team, and my history teacher
was the volleyball coach, Mr.
(Curt) Sohns, at the time and
he just said I should give it a
try… and I fell in love with it
on the first day.”
“He told me a lot of the stuff
was the same as basketball, and
I’ve played basketball my
whole life, so it was basically
just picking up the idea of the
game. And once I picked that
up, he told me I would get
some varsity time and then the
one game he just put me in, and
I’ve played since then.”
Sweppenheiser said he start-
ed playing weak-side hitter,
before moving to middle block-
er during his first year on the
team.
His talents haven’t gone
unnoticed by his teammates,
who voted him a captain this
season, along with teammates
David Boslough and Jordan
Rose.
“He’s one of our best players
and a team leader, and I think
they recognized that right from
when we voted two weeks into
practice,” said Wozniak.
Wozniak added that Swep-
pensheiser, with his strong
work ethic, has always been a
leader by example, but this year
he has also become more vocal
with his teammates. The 17-
year-old said that the transition
was something that just hap-
pened as the season went on.
“It kind of just happened…
we were playing really sloppy
against Western Wayne, which
was the biggest game of the
year. We weren’t playing well,
and I just tried to motivate
everyone to play hard,” said
Sweppenheiser.
“Everyone listened to me
because everyone knows I’m a
three-year starter, and it
helped.”
The team defeated Western
Wayne, the only team the Lions
lost to this season, 3-1, April
26.
The Lions will now try and
take the momentum from their
winning season into the district
playoffs.
“I’m not sure who we’re
playing first round yet, but last
night I went and watched
Coughlin and Crestwood. We
could end up against either one
of them, and I’m pretty confi-
dent we could beat them and
I’m hoping we could make it to
regionals and maybe states,”
said Sweppenhieser.
“My goal since the beginning
of the year has been to make it
to states.”
Sweppenheiser, 17, a Facto-
ryville resident, is the son of
Debbie Sweppenheiser.
The Lions will begin chasing
his goal when they begin the
playoffs May 23 at Lackawan-
na Trail High School, with the
time and team to be an-
nounced.
