Tomorrow, June 6, may be
D-Day to most of the world, the
anniversary of the Normandy
Invasion in 1944, but to me, it’s
G-Day, the day my daughter
Greta was born.
She arrived on June 6, 1983,
and my life has not been the
same since.
In my column that week, I
wrote, “Now I know how much
my parents must love me.” A
few weeks later a fellow sent
me a letter saying my words
came to mind when his own
first child was born.
I was nearly 34 when Greta
came along and I recall saying
more than once, “I’m too old
for this parent stuff.” On the
other hand, I often thought,
“How do 20 year olds do this?”
While Greta tapped into a
love I’d never before known,
she also pushed buttons on me I
never knew I had. How strained
green beans could go from
being her favorite food one day
to being spit in my face the next
I will never understand.
We had a standoff in McDo-
nald’s when she was about three
that rivaled the Cuban Missile
Crisis. She would not eat a
single bite of her food and I
would not allow her on the
playground until she did. I’m
surprised we’re not still sitting
there.
Who finally won?
Guess.
I will never forget the look in
her eyes the first time she real-
ized she could control me. She
might have been a year and a
half at the time. I saw her put
something in her mouth that I
feared might be an earring she
found on the floor. Without
hesitation, I stuck my finger in
there to retrieve it, and she
clamped down with all her
might, her brand new teeth
holding me like a vice grip.
I tried to stay calm and cajole
her into releasing me, but the
more I did, the harder she bit. I
knew she could sense pain in
my eyes and I also knew this
was going to be a defining
moment in our relationship.
She finally opened up, but she
took her good natured time.
It case you are wondering …
it was a Cheerio.
Greta, the toddler, and I spent
a lot of time together. I was off
on Wednesdays and it became
our day. We’d go for walks –
even on the coldest winter days,
build elaborate cities out of
blocks, act out Disney movies
with her in the lead role and all
of her stuffed animals as the
supporting cast, and read books
– often the same one over and
over.
Beauty and the Beast was
one of her favorites. I drew a
picture of the Beast and hung it
on the refrigerator door. She’d
often stand there carrying on a
conversation with that picture
while I sat on the floor, my
back against the fridge, doing
my best Beast voice. “Hi,
Beast,” she’d say. “Hi, Greta,”
I’d answer in a semi growl. And
we’d go from there.
The Beast, I soon discovered,
could get through to her better
than I.
“Remember to brush your
teeth,” he’d say and that night
she’d enthusiastically brush her
teeth.
“I wish I could freeze her,”
I’d think, you know, keep the
two year old around forever.
Those were the times when her
only goal in life was to grow up
and marry me.
But freeze her? Hardly. Each
birthday seemed to roll around
faster and faster.
Greta was 12, Michael 9
when their mom and I split up
and the three of them moved
about 150 miles away. This
presented a new challenge: how
to be the Dad I wanted to be,
and the Dad they deserved,
from afar.
Cell phones were rare in
1995. I bought one and called
them every night in the week.
My monthly bills were astrono-
mical but well worth it.
To my surprise our relation-
ship actually deepened. Not
there every day to harp about
doing homework or cleaning
your room, I became what I
called the “confidant parent.”
Greta and Michael started
telling me their secrets, often
beginning with, “Dad, don’t tell
Mom but …”
Greta and I had some heavy
conversations in those years,
mostly over coffee since, at 13,
she was now all grown up.
She was 15 when I said, “You
know, Greta, you and I are in
the same boat. You’re thinking
about dating for the first time in
your life and I’m trying to fig-
ure out how to go on a date for
the first time in 24 years. Are
you as scared as I am?”
Greta will celebrate her 28th
birthday tomorrow in her new
residence in Austin, Texas.
She’s moving there this week-
end from Boulder, Colorado.
She has a new job waiting in
Austin and a beau she’s mighty
sweet on. I’ve always told her
there are two rules for a guy to
win her hand: he has to love her
as much as I do and he has to
take just as good care of her as
I do. Over 28 years, I’ve set that
bar pretty high. This Texas guy
has his work cut out for him.

A
world of trouble lies be-
neath the façade of the
former Wayne’s World
building on South Main Street.
Contractors doing emergency
stabilization work tore off the
crumbling façade of the former
music store last week. Taking the
front off gave inspectors a lookat
parts of the building which were
not exposed before. By the end
of the week, after a structural in-
spection, the city engineering
firm, Reilly and Associates, rec-
ommended the building be de-
molished.
Firm president Tom Reilly
said the ease with which the fa-
çade came off portended a struc-
tural deficiency. “They found
that some of the bricks came off
by hand the mortar was so soft,”
he said.
Reilly explained that the top
floor brick wasn’t stable. “The
upper brick sat on steel beam
which typically would have rods
or straps connecting the brick to
the beam. We found those rods
didn’t exist. They were detached
sometime in the past.”
The building, estimated to be
more than 100 years old, was
modified several times which
weakened the structure in the
long run. For example, the first
floor was lowered.
“The first floor was
originally two steps
up,” Reilly said. “At
some point they de-
tached the floor from
where it was connected
to the sidewalls, low-
ered it 18 inches and
put timbers in.”
The mortar in much
of the south wall has gone to
powder causing the wall to shift
out toward the Pittston Dental
building which is just inches
away, Reilly said.
“There is no access to that wall
from the outside because it’s so
close to the dental building,”
Reilly said. “You would have to
work from inside, take the wall
down and put up a newone. That
put it over the edge.”
Theoretically the building
could be saved, but the cost – es-
timated at $200,000 just for the
façade and as much as $1million
overall – is considered prohib-
itive. The city’s grant for down-
town rehabilitation is $1.48 mil-
lion.
Jerry Mullarky of the city’s re-
development authority said the
city hopes to act quickly on Reil-
ly’s recommendation. “We can’t
leave it exposed as it is,” he said.
The workers also worked on
Napoli’s Pizza where they are re-
pairing the roof. Both buildings
were damagedwhenthe attached
building between them at 28 S.
Main St. was demolished in June
of 2010. The city’s redevelop-
ment authority acquired that
building – last used as a pool hall
owned by Wally Sciandra –
through the county’s tax claim
bureau.
Antonio Costagliole, owner of
Naploi’s Pizza, is paying for a
new roof, while the
authority is playing
for a fix of the por-
tion of his building
damaged by the
demolition and to
stucco and water-
proof the exposed
wall.
Once that’s done,
work can begin on a
new façade for Na-
poli’s and the proposed “pocket
park” on the adjacent lot which
will now include the Wayne’s
footprint.
Not all of the Wayne’s World
building will be gone forever.
The ornamental cornice and cor-
bels from the top of the façade
were carefully removed and
saved. They might be used to
dress up the dental building next
door.

Workers removed the facade of the former Wayne's World on
South Main this week uncovering structural problems which will
likely lead to its demolition.
Theoretically the building could be saved,
but the cost – estimated at $200,000 just
for the façade and as much as $1 million
overall – is considered prohibitive. The
city’s grant for downtown rehabilitation is
$1.48 million.

O
nce St. Mary’s Assump-
tion Catholic School
wraps up the 2010-2011
school year, the city of Pittston
will be without a Catholic school
for the first time since the
mid-1800s.
School officials, students,
their parents and school support-
ers gathered Thursday night for a
celebratory Mass and open
house at the St. Mary’s Assump-
tion Church and school on
Church Street. The school is
closing as part of a reorganiza-
tion of the Diocese of Scranton
schools.
SharonBosco, whowas recog-
nized for the 38 years of her life
that she devoted to the school as
a teachers aide, never thought
she would see the day when the
school closed.
Before working as an aide, she
was a student there. Her daugh-
ter and two grandchildren also
attended.
“I was shocked,” Bosco said
about the April announcement of
the closure. “Since the 1940s,
this school has been a huge part
of my life.”
The feeling of shock and dis-
belief was common among
many involved with St. Mary’s
Assumption.
Principal Mary J. Kozick had
been in her position for only a
year and a half when she heard of
the closing. Prior to the April an-
nouncement from Diocese of
Scranton Bishop Joseph Bambe-
ra, Kozick said she had heard no
indication that the school would
close.
The news is still so fresh that
she is not aware of what she will
be doing next year. She is also
unaware of any plans regarding
what will be done with the
church and school facilities.
Kozick estimates that roughly
95 percent of the students will
continue pursuing a Catholic
education at one of several other
Catholic elementary and junior
high schools in the area.
The Rev. Tom Maloney, who
has been involved with the
school for the past four years,
praised the school and church
community for its positive atti-
tude throughout the last few
weeks.
And he credited Kozick’s lead-
ership skills with setting that
tone.
“There was a lot of anger and
disappointment, but she worked
hard to remind everyone how

Members of Saint Peter’s
LutheranChurchinHughestown
know of Pastor Bob Mitchell as
their spiritual leader – who deliv-
ers inspiring sermons, oversees
the work of the church’s commit-
tees, ministers to the elderly and
hospitalized, leads worship ser-
vices, and strives to create an at-
mosphere of shalom within the
church and community. What
members may not fully know
about Pastor Bob is his extensive
background in the field of mu-
sic.
Pastor Bob, who has served
Saint Peter’s since November of
2009, has occasionally sung so-
los at church services. However,
these have only been small
glimpses of his noteworthy tal-
ent.
On Sunday, June 12 at 4 p.m.,
Pastor Bob will present a per-
formance which will feature him
singing a variety of secular and
sacred works – including Ger-
man and Italian art songs, show
tunes, and gospel songs.
Pastor Bob has chosen the
name “Musical Primavera” for
the performance. “Primavera”
means “Spring” in Italian, and
the program will be held during
the last full week of spring.
The spring season will be the
theme of several of his selections
– Frulingsglaube (The Hope of
Spring) by Franz Schubert, as
well as the first three selections
in Robert Schumann’s song cy-
cle Dichterliebe and the song
Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’
from the musical Oklahoma.
Because the program will be
held on Pentecost Sunday, the
Holy Spirit will be the theme of
other songs on the program.
Pastor Bob will be accompa-
nied on piano and organ by Saint
Peter’s music director, Michael
Sowa.
Long before Pastor Bob was
ordained, he sang some 40 opera
roles in a 30-year career. He ap-
pearedin15productions withthe
Amato Opera Company alone,
and in numerous productions
with14 other “minor league” op-
era companies in the NY-NJ-CT
metropolitan area.
Pastor Bob is the author of Op-
era Inside Out, published by Xli-
bris and is in the process of writ-
ing a memoir about his singing
experiences. In addition to his
opera career, he has sung exten-
sively in concert, churches, syn-
agogues, radio, andhas a number
of YouTube selections on the in-
ternet.
Pastor Bob holds a B.S. degree
inVoice andOpera fromMannes
College of Music in New York
City, as well as a Master of Di-
vinity degree from New Brun-
swick (NJ) Theological Semina-
ry.
Along with his wife, Joan, he
co-pastored a church in the Hud-
son Valley for seven years.
Pastor Bobhas alsotaught phi-
losophy at Marist College in
Poughkeepsie, NY. He has also
taught in the East Stroudsburg
School District on both elemen-
tary and middle school levels.
Pastor Bob is a member of the
Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity.
From1968 to 1998 he was Man-
ager of Marketing Information
Management at Scholastic, Inc.
the New York-based educational
publisher. He resides in Bushkill
with his wife, Joan.
What will also make this pro-
gram special is the instrument
whichwill be usedtoaccompany
Pastor Bob for many of his selec-
tions. Saint Peter’s has a piano
which dates back to the 1920s. It
was restored in the winter of
2010 through a generous contri-
bution by Clara Schmaltz, a
member of Saint Peter’s.
The piano was relocated from
the choir room to the church
sanctuary. The piano has also
been used for Sunday School
events and for special concerts
and services held at the church.
Several selections will be ac-
companied on Saint Peter’s pipe
organ, built in 1917 by M.P.
Moller and restored in 1994
through the generosity of Mr.
and Mrs. Francis Carrozza.
The performance will con-
clude with a sing-along of pop-
ular tunes and hymns. A free-
will offering will be collected to
help raise funds for Saint Peter’s
Lutheran Church, and a recep-
tionwill followthe performance.

St. Mary’s Assumption Ca-
tholic School was accredited by
the Middle States Commission
on Elementary Schools and it of-
fered classes from pre-kinder-
garten through eighth grade, for
ages 3 through 14.
It was founded by the Sisters
of Christian Charity in1868. The
first classes were taught in the
church until a school was built
on the corner of Wood and Sand
streets in 1890.
In 1924, a new school was
built. That building will remain
in use until the doors close for
the final time on June 15.

Fireworks displays bring people and
communities together. That is evidenced
here every Fourth of July when the joint
Pittston-West Pittston displays lights up
the sky over the Susquehanna River.
The crowds that gather on the river-
banks and Water Street Bridge and the
fireworks they watch rival those of larger
cities.
This should be a point of pride for our
small municipalities.
But a thrilling and powerful fireworks
display costs money. A 30 minute show
can run $20,000 or more. Neither the city
nor the borough can budget that kind of
money for fireworks. That’s why they de-
pend on your and your generosity.
Let’s make this a true communities-
wide event. While the display is paid for
out of the Pittston-West Pittston Commu-
nity Fund, folks from all the local towns
are urged to make contributions.
It’s been said that if everyone of us who
watches the display were to kick in a buck
or two the fund would have enough for a
massive display.
Please send your donation to c/o Pitt-
ston City Clerk’s Office, Pittston City
Hall, 35 Broad Street, Pittston, Pa 18640
as soon as possible.
Let’s light
up the sky
Election day has now past and we have elected those people
who the general public feels can best represent us in our cities,
counties and school districts. Of course, some races are still left
until November, but for some positions, the elected officials are
decided.
Unfortunately, I have not beensoluckyas tohave beenchosen,
but as the saying goes “you live and learn.”
I would not have missed this opportunity, even with the out-
come. The people I met along the way were worth the adventure.
I would like to thank those people who believed I could under-
take the job.
Thank you to those who supported me, helped me and voted
for me. Thank you to the people who put signs in their yards,
showing their support.
The only request I have now, is that in November, please go to
vote. Please thinkcarefullyabout your choices andtake those ten
minutes or so out of your day.

Wilkes-Barre is getting a professional
indoor lacrosse team. So far the teamdoes
not have a nickname. We suggest the
Whitetails?
What couldbe more symbolic of our ar-
ea than the majestic and athletic Whitetail
Deer which can sprint up to 30 miles an
hour and leap 30 feet in a single bound.
After all we live in an area where the
first dayof deer huntingseasonis a school
holiday.
And after all the Whitetail is the official
mammal of Pennsylvania.
Believe it or not the population density
of Whitetails here in the valley is estimat-
ed to be15 to 20 per square mile and up to
50 in the Poconos.
It is nearly impossible to quantify the
number of Whitetails statewide, but PAis
always in the top three in license sales
with Texas and Michigan.
So come on, name that teamthe White-
tails.
And name a
pro sports team

Company president Michael Gallagher, vice-president A.K.
Morris, and superintendent Benjamin Milton.
We are also need photos of the following labor leaders: John
Boylan, Enoch Williams, Frank McGarry, Frank Cardoni, Tho-

Wouldn’t you love to be the proverbial fly on the
wall at the Heck Sanitarium just to confirm that
what I write is fact?
It’s mayhem and when I refer to it as “The Fun
House,” I mean it in the crazy way, not the ha-ha
way.
But what’s struck me lately about my home is
just how much I’m treated as a bloodhound.
This family is simply incapable of looking for
and finding anything that may not be directly right
in front of their befuddled faces.
For example, today alone, the following snippets
transpired from several needy conversations rotat-
ing around my home, all
directed at me, of
course:
“Where’s the ham?
Where’s the potato sal-
ad? I don’t see any pota-
to salad in here! I AM
lookingonthe topshelf!
Ohhh … a white con-
tainer … I thought you
meant off-white. I see it
now. Oh. The ham isn’t
sliced? Darn. I guess
that means I have to
slice it? Really?”
I remind himthat he’s
old enough to cut up his
own meat now, and pos-
sibly, to even feed it to
himself.
This particular conversation occurred between
me and, not a child, but a husband-child. He always
seems to be struck dumb when he asks the ques-
tion: “What’s toeat?” andI say: “Lookinthe refrig-
erator and figure it out.”
I may as well be directing him to land a helicop-
ter in the playground across the street.
Not to be outdone in the War on Where-is-It, my
real children begin:
“Mom! MOM! Where are the pinking shears?”
I frown. “The what? Why … oh never mind. I
truly don’t want to know. Top drawer, dining room,
under the map, left side – next to the tape.”
“Mom! Where’s the receipt for the ugly purse the
Easter Bunny left me? It’s not that I hate it, but it’s
just so … so PINK.”
I don’t even blink. “Middle drawer, under the ad-
dress book but over the pencils, in the kitchen, by
the microwave.”
My bewildered middle child: “Mom! Where are
my glasses?”
This has registered pretty high on my incredu-
lous meter. “Have you looked on your face, Ein-
stein?”
“MOM! MOM! Where are the…?”
“Oh, for crying out loud! On the porch, in the
back. By the recycling! And, food for thought peo-
ple: If I drop dead tomorrow, this family will go to
hell in hand basket.”
My husband, finally paying attention, perked
right up: “No, we won’t. I know what I’d do if you
died tomorrow … we’d all move to Vegas, baby.”
He seemed really inappropriately energized at
the thought, going so far as to rub his hands togeth-
er excitedly.
I turn, hands on hips, ready for battle. “For God’s
sake, man, haven’t you watched CSI lately? Vegas
is a cesspool! You aren’t moving my kids to Vegas!
Over my dead … oh …”
I go overboard on my dissertation of the perils of
Vegas, temporarily forgetting that he has obviously
given this some real thought, that is, what protocol
will be followed imme-
diately following my
death.
Ouch.
“Well, anyway,” I con-
tinue, “you could never
move anywhere if I were
dead. For one thing, you
have absolutely no idea
where the suitcases are
stored, not to mention
how to move anything
from one place to the
next, except your stupid
golf clubs, whichremain
in your trunk, year-
round. You can barely
find your underwear in
the morning, let alone
locating everything you need to pack and move a
family. When we moved here, who do you think
packed every item in bubble wrap, including your
stupid Raiders football helmet chip and dip bowl,
and then unpacked every single solitary item once
we arrived, huh?”
“Ummm,” said my son, trying to win this game,
“the UPS man, right? And also, have you seen my
hall pass? If I lose it, I have to pay for a new one.”
I snap: “Well son, it’s in the lint trap right about
now, so pony-up the cashola.”
My daughter piped in: “Listen. Maria. I’d be sad
if you died, but if you did, I knowwhat I’d do. Get a
tattoo. Not a trashy tattoo, a really nice one. Right
here.”
She showed me where and I fainted.
They thought I really did die, as if by merely
wishing it would make it true.
I’m going to bed.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
And help my family make a steak, or bake a cake
or for God’s sake, at the very least, find the Q-tips
and pinking shears.

“Where’s the ham? Where’s the
potato salad? I don’t see any
potato salad in here! I AM look-
ing on the top shelf! Ohhh … a
white container … I thought
you meant off-white. I see it
now. Oh. The ham isn’t sliced?
Darn. I guess that means I have
to slice it? Really?”
This past week USDA announced the 2010 Dietary Guideline
graphic which is designed to help consumers visual the recommen-
dations foundinthe newUDSADietaryGuidelines. ChooseMyPlate
is an illustration designed to remind Americans to help make better
food choices, and according to USDA, not necessarily as the only
method to change consumer behavior alone. This illustration shows
howto incorporate the five food groups; dairy, fruits, grains, vegeta-
bles and protein into everyday meals.
Some of you may recognize that the newfood pyramid (which was
a pyramid that tipped over the colored bands) illustrated someone
climbing stairs in addition to being a pyramid full of vertical running
colored food bands. Each band represented a food group. There were
six different colored bands. People were to eat less of the yellowthin
band representing oils and to eat more of the wider orange band
which represented grains.
Looking differently, USDAnowuses the image of a plate, a 9 inch
plate is recommended, and shows how to place foods on the plate.
The larger section is nowvegetables, which is slightly different from
the wider orange grain band in the past two illustrations.
Three items not representedinthe newChooseMyPlate illustration
which were in past illustrations are a character walking up the stairs,
foods which contained amounts of sugar and higher fat foods. Apast
USDAillustration, the black pyramid, had circles and triangles at the
top of the pyramid illustrating foods that contained fats and oils.
Those foods were to be eaten in small amounts as they were at the top
of the pyramid. Walking or other physical activity is still a recom-
mendation of the new Dietary Guidelines, just isn’t a part of the
graphic.
As you get ready to set the table this evening for your family meal,
take a look at the graphic and visually place the foods on the plate.
Are there vegetables for dinner this evening? Do you plan to serve
fruit with the meal? Lastly but not least, is there a glass of skimor low
fat milk next to the plate? Visit ChooseMyPlate.gov for more infor-
mation. Here is a recipe to make the night before and allow the nat-
ural juices to soften the bread. It can be quickly micro waved in the
am. Add 6oz of nonfat yogurt to meet three of the five food groups;
dairy, fruit and grains. More to come!
Berry Bread Pudding
1 and 1/2 cups unsweetened, frozen berries, thawed, undrained Or
choose fresh strawberries
1/2 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract (optional)
4 or 5 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed
Low fat Vanilla yogurt (optional)
In a small bowl, combine the thawed berries, sugar and/or vanilla
extract. Spoon1/4 cup of the berry mixture to cover the bottomof a 2
cup deep dish. Cover the berry mixture with a layer of bread. Spoon
remaining berry mixture on top of the bread. Cover with another lay-
er of bread. Repeat steps 4 and 5 twice ending with a layer of bread.
Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place a plate or bowl on top of
the berry dish that fits just inside of it. Place a heavy object on top to
press down on the fruit and bread layers. Refrigerate overnight.
(Check the dish to be sure juice does not run over the top. You may
need to replace the heavy object with a lighter one to prevent spills).
Serve with a dollop of lowfat vanilla yogurt. Yields 2- 1cup servings

The late SamMiceli, a decorated veteran of D-Day in WWII, was a
tireless advocate for veterans. On Saturday, May 28 a ceremony at the
park that bears Miceli’s name was held by the Pittston American Le-
gion Post to honor and remember those American soldiers who
served and died in wars.
Some of the speakers at the event were American Legion Chaplin
Joe Savokinas, Judge Fred Pierontoni, State Rep. Mike Carroll, Rev.
Paul McDonald, OSJ, and the city’s mayor Jason Klush.
Councilman Danny Argo, arriving in a 1938 Buick, opened the
ceremony with the National Anthem.
George Parrick rang the bell in remembrance of each of the wars.
Fred Pierantoni expressed some of his thoughts of remembrance.

Question #1
A column in the
June 5, 1949, issue of
the Sunday Dispatch
stated that Pittston
was the site of an
event that was the last
of its kind. What was
it?
1949 – 62 Years Ago
Bone Stadium was the site of the
Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bai-
ley Circus with Pittston City and school
district benefiting.
A10 per cent amusement tax was
collected on $26,000 of admissions,
netting the city and district $1,312.73
each. Estimates were that the circus
probably grossed another $25,000 in
concession sales and sideshows.
The city received $37.50 for vendor’s
license, $55 for concession permits and
$5 for sideshow permits.
Joseph Reardon of McPhillips-Wid-
dall Post 607 American Legion Avoca,
presented medals to Joseph Biga and
Jean Mazur for high honors they
achieved at Avoca public school.
Teachers Mary Barrett and Marga-
ret Bradbury were in charge of the
program.
The McPhillips-Widdal Post was
established in 1946.
The Esquire Shop on North Main
Street Pittston advertised the perfect gift
for the man in your life: a Resistol “Self
Conforming” Hat.
Lauded as the most comfortable hat
ever worn, the inside band of the stylish
dress hat supposedly molded to the
shape of the wearer’s head.
In the early 1920s a young millionaire,
E.R. Byer was looking to invest in a
growing business. He met a young hat
maker, Harry Rolnick. Rolnick’s compa-
ny produced men’s Western and dress
felt hats both were marketed under the
brand name "Resistol Hats," meaning to
resist-all weather.
Today the company sells mainly cow-
boy hats.
1959 – 52 Years Ago
Pvt. William Gruzenski of Dupont, a
cadet at the Pennsylvania Military Col-
lege, in Chester, Pennsylvania, was pre-
sent as Wernher von Braun, director of
the United States Developments Divi-
sion of the Army Ballistic Missile Agen-
cy was awarded an honorary degree.
Von Braun inspected the Cadet Honor
Guard, of which Gruzenski was a mem-
ber.
A photo of the soldier and von Braun
went out on the Associated Press wire
service.
Soon after, Gruzenski was receiving
mail from across the country, as he
made history with the impressive image.
According to the nasa.gov web site, Von
Braun was the well-known leader of the
“rocket team” which developed the V–2
ballistic missile for the Nazis during
World War II. A USA led military oper-
ation called Project Paperclip, rounded
up the team and its leader from defeated
Germany in World War II.
They were sent to Fort Bliss, Texas. In
1960, von Braun was sent to NASA and
received a mandate to build the giant
Saturn rockets.
The Exeter Memorial Post V.F.W.
created a lot of interest in their Memo-
rial Day display at the borough’s monu-
ment to veterans of all wars.
A replica of the Tomb of the Un-
known Soldier made by Michael Fedor
and replica of Flanders Field designed
by Willard Klemek, both of Exeter,
provided a fitting tribute.
The World War I Flanders Field
American Cemetery and Memorial lies
on the southeast edge of the town of
Waregem, Belgium, and was made im-
mortal by a poem written by John
McCrea and published in 1919.
John Montagna of Pittston and John
DeFaveri of Exeter traded in one set of
clothes for another, their team softball
uniforms for umpire blue.
Both men, local softball stars would
umpire Little League, amateur baseball
and softball games, a daunting task with
different rules applying in each sport.
1969 – 42 Years Ago
In the early stages of formation, the
local Meals on Wheels program steering
committee met to discuss plans to gain
volunteers and enlarge the coverage area
stretching from Duryea to Wyoming.
Members of the first committee were
Rev. Charles Gommer Sr., Louise
Uritz, Rev. James Williams, Rev. Ger-
ald Bishof, Mrs. Jerry Gillespie, Be-
verly Fiegelman, Mrs. George Miller,
Irene Marsh, Ann Grow, Agnes Beru-
lis, Mrs. Charles Gommer, George
Bainbridge, Rev. Donald MacMillan,
Rev. Raymond Deviney, Rabbi Benja-
min Mazor and Brainard Daniels.
First located in the basement of the
First Methodist Church on Broad Street,
and now on Main Street, Pittston, pro-
gram Coordinator and President of the
Board of Directors Louise Smith and
her staff of volunteers are celebrating
their 42nd year distributing meals to the
homebound in Pittston, West Pittston,
Exeter, and every borough up to the
Forty Fort Airport.
West Wyoming Borough, chartered on
June 8, 1898, was celebrating its 71st
birthday. Largely a farming, then coal
mining community the 1960 census
showed the borough only one of two
communities with an increase in pop-
ulation.
Some former burgesses or mayors
were William Cotter, William Blan-
nett and John Mizin. It was reported at
the time that the first chiefs of police
received $12 per month salary. The bor-
ough is the recipient of the 2011 Gover-
nor’s Award for Local Government Ex-
cellence and 2011 Municipal Award
Recipient for Responding to Adversity.

Question #2
According to asasoftball.com
the name "softball" dates back
to 1926.
The name was coined by
Walter Hakanson at a meeting
of the National Recreation
Congress. What were some of
the other names attributed to
the game.
Answer #1
Ed Fritz, Sports Editor of the
New Castle Pennsylvania
News, and author of an article
appearing in the Philadelphia
magazine “Veteran Boxer”
stated the last “barn fight” was
held in 1909 “in a spot near
Pittston.”
The bitter rivalry between
Joe Burke whose ancestors
came from south Ireland and
Bert O’Donnell whose folks
came from north Ireland was to
be settled.
After walking two miles into
the woods, preceded by lantern
carrying escorts, the boxers and
a large group of fans arrived at
a fire hall. After the ring was
set up, the boxers began the
fight. Burke lost.
In the article Fritz claimed,
although the event was illegal,
he was the man who drew up
the agreement for the fight.
On June 21, 1949, in the
world of professional boxing,
Ezzard Charles wins the vacant
world Heavyweight title, de-
feating Jersey Joe Walcott, by a
fifteen round unanimous deci-
sion, in Chicago.
On July 11, Sugar Ray Rob-
inson retains the world Welter-
weight title with a fifteen round
unanimous decision over future
world champion Kid Gavilan,
in Philadelphia.
Answer #2
In the early days of the sport
softball was referred to as "in-
door baseball", "kitten ball",
and "diamond ball", "mush
ball" and "pumpkin ball".

On behalf of the West Pittston

DePrimo Post 542 and the
American Legion and VFW of

heartfelt appreciation to all the
participants in our Memorial
Day Parade.
I would also like to thank all
the citizens of West Pittston and

honor of all our veterans to show
their support of our troops.
Our parade was a great suc-
cess and we hope next year’s will
be even bigger and better.
I especially want to thank the

lthough creamy peanut butter is not
often used in most cooking recipes,
the crunchy is the most popular type
purchased and eaten by consumers.
Tasters gravitate the crunchy over the
creamy because of the sweet-salty
balance, “strong roasted flavor”, and
the “really good crunch”.

Karina Singer is bringing a
touch of class to Hughestown.
The French-born Singer, 44, is a
25-year veteran bar and restau-
rant worker from Clarks Sum-
mit.
Nowshe is capitalizing on that
experience as partner and man-
ager of Karina’s Retreat at 295
Parsonage Street. There was a li-
quor license at that address as
long as 100 years ago. After pro-
hibition it was owned by Deno
Chiavacci and it was known as
Deno’s until the early 1980s.
Most recently it was Gabriella’s,
which closed last August.
Karina, backed by her finance
John Barborek of Duryea, took
over last December and they
spent six months transforming
the place. They had a soft open-
ing last weekend, with a grand
opening planned for the near fu-
ture.
Theytore uprugs andinstalled
Prego hardwood-look-alike,
laminate flooring. They gutted
walls, reconfigured the bar and
floor plan, added a look of wain-
scoting, installed track lighting,
modernized the kitchen, evened
the floor, painted and cleaned.
Judson Spencer painted the out-
side.
Karina, who is also an artist,
added her own unique touch to
the bar decor by painting music
and mixed-drink themed-scenes
with French sayings on the four
high-top tables.
Karina said she is still devel-
oping a menu which will include
her own recipes, and negotiating
to hire a chef. In the meantime
bar food – pizza, wings, Buffalo
bites and burgers – are served.
The bar has eight taps, four of
which will rotate imports and
micros, and an extensive variety
of imported bottled beer.
But, as the gleaming interior
and white tablecloths suggest,
Karina’s Retreat is not just an-
other beer, pizza and wing joint.
Far fromit. Karina said the menu
has a martini and wine list and
will eventually include lasagna,
chicken scampi, pot roast and
surf ‘n’ turf just to name a few
items.
Karina, who is also a baker,
said signature deserts are part of
her plan down the road.
The bar area can seat 30, the
dining area 45. The outside pat-
io-deck can accommodate an-
other 20 to 30 patrons.
By the way, the patio-deck can
use a name. If you stop in Kari-
na’s make your suggestion at the
bar. If your patio name is chosen
you’ll win a case of beer.
Karina’s is open seven days at
week at 3 p.m. Happy Hour is 4
to 6.
Karina’s retreat: a touch of class in Hughestown
New bar/restaurant opens last week on Parsonage Street

Usually unflappable, Old
Forge starter Tony Goodall
wore his emotions on his sleeve
as the Blue Devils ace felt he
was getting squeezed by plate
umpire John Sedeski early in
the District 2 Class 1A final at
PNC Field in Moosic on Tues-
day afternoon.
But two big strikeouts to get
the four-time defending cham-
pions out of trouble in the sec-
ond inning turned that early
frustration into momentum as
Goodall led Old Forge to an un-
precedented fifth straight dis-
trict crown in a complete-game
8-3 win over Lackawanna
League Division III champion
and Lackawanna Trail to put
the Blue Devils into the PIAA
Class 1A Tournament for the
ninth time in school history.
“The ump was calling it
close. Giving it to the other
team but not to me,” said
Goodall. “(Assistant) Coach
(Gary DiMattia) just told me to
settle down and I would even-
tually get the calls, and I did.”
Goodall was upset on a four-
pitch walk to his counterpart,
7-foot-2 Steve Miller, in the
first inning, and on a pitch be-
fore the second of back-to-
back singles in the second in-
ning that eventually gave the
Lions second-and-third with
no outs after Matt Flynn stole
second.
But Goodall got Ben Leh-
man to lineout to Dom Avvisa-
to at first base for the first out
of the second before fanning
Matt Aten and Bruce Benko to
end the threat.
“Gary talked to him a little
bit after the first and between
batters,” said Head Coach Tony
DiMattia of his pitcher’s frus-
tration. “It was a tough spot for
the umpire if you look at it. He
had a guy who was 7-foot-2
coming over the top, a different
angle then Tony who throws
three-quarters, and he had to
change his angle of looking at
pitches every inning. It was
tough on him.
“But I think Tony settled in,
and the thing about him is he
doesn’t walk anybody. He
doesn’t throw extra-pitches. To
beat him you have to get hits.”
Hits were few and far be-
tween for Lackawanna Trail.
With the exception of the two
hits in the second, and the four
hits in the bottom of the fifth
that scored all three runs for the
Lions, the top-seed managed
just one other hit off of Good-
all, a sixth-inning, two-out sin-
gle to right by Lehman.
That certainly wasn’t the
case for the Blue Devils.
Mario Martinelli led off the
game with a single to center
and subsequently stole second
and third. The senior second
baseman was stranded at third,
but Martinelli had set the tone
for the game as Old Forge
would steal a total of 10 bases
on the afternoon.
After Goodall worked out of
the jam in the second, the Blue
Devils went to work. Michael
Long belted one of his three
hits in the game to right with
one out, and promptly stole
second with Connor Fultz at
the plate.
Fultz followed with a single
to move Long to third before he
stole second base. Dave Argust
lifted a sacrifice fly to right to

A season to forget turned into one to
remember as the Old Forge softball
team captured its fourth consecutive
District 2 Class 1A championship with
a 7-3, eight-inning victory over Blue
Ridge at Mid Valley High School on
Wednesday in Throop.
Coming off of a four-win regular-
season, the outlook wasn’t good for the
Blue Devils as they entered the district
tournament as the fifth-seed out of six
teams. But after two wins on the road to
open the postseason – including a
semifinal victory against top-seeded
Northwest – Coach Pat Revello’s nine
was all set for a sixth consecutive
showdown with the Lady Red Raiders
in the title game.
“This teamworked just as hard as any
team in the past 12 years and they really
deserve this,” said Revello after his
222nd career victory. “Just walking
around with a target on your back all
the time like we do may have got to
them at times during the season. But
the competition that we play in our di-
vision gets us ready for the postseason
and games like this.”
A game like this was nothing more
than your typical, gut-wrenching
championship matchup between the
Lackawanna League small-school ti-
tans. And for seven innings it looked as
if whichever team took advantage of a
mistake would be the team that wore
the crown.
Blue Ridge had its first opportunity
in its first at-bat when Gabby Wolfe re-
ached on an error and moved to second
on another error off the bat of Jackie
Furch. After Nicole Marianelli induced
a weak grounder back to the circle,
Courtney Ucci reached on a fielder’s
choice to load the bases.
But Marianelli settled in and got a
short fly ball out to Taylor Nemetz in
right before striking out the final batter
of the first inning to get out of the jam.
Old Forge (7-10) got on the board in
the top of the third when Marianelli
doubled over the right fielder’s head
with one out, driving in Nemetz who
had led off with a bunt single before
moving to second when Lauren Carey
drew a walk. The Blue Devils would

leave Carey and Marianelli stranded,
but led 1-0.
Marianelli kept the lead into the fifth
after retiring six straight after a leadoff
double by Wolfe in the bottom of the
third. But in the fifth, Blue Ridge took
advantage of an error and a bloop dou-
ble by Wolfe to even the score at 1-1.
Marianelli allowed just two hits over
the first seven innings and did not walk
a batter while striking out three. The
senior has earned all three playoff vic-
tories for the Blue Devils after taking
over in the circle late in the season.
“I think the big change was Nicole’s
senior leadership,” said Andi Alsalahat
of Marianelli’s move to the mound and
the Blue Devils instant success. “Ni-
cole was more vocal when she became
the pitcher and it seemed to relax us
more.
“She had been here before in the big
games, and it made a difference. Our
bats are coming alive. We are playing
better in the field. Everything is start-
ing to come together.”
The Blue Devils went three-up-three
down in the sixth and seventh, but so
did the Lady Red Raiders as senior
Lindsay Regan continued her flawless
play at third base with three assists on
six of the outs. Regan was also part of a
late-season change which saw her
move from short back to third where
she excelled as a junior.
In the eighth, lightning struck for Old
Forge as the breaks that had gone
against them all season finally went
their way.
Nemetz reached on an error when
Kaitlyn Krug couldn’t handle the fresh-
man’s bunt and Carey smacked a single
to right which got by Erin Salinkas to
put runners at second and third with no
out.
Andi Alsalahat followed with a sharp
grounder to Jenna Rupakus and the
Blue Ridge second baseman gunned
down Nemetz at the plate for the first
out of the inning.
But the Blue Devils were just getting
started.
Marianelli hit a fly ball to the warn-
ing track for a sacrifice fly to score Ca-
rey, and Chelsea Cadwalder followed
with an RBI double that one-hopped
the left centerfield fence to give score
Alsalahat and give Old Forge a 3-1lead.
With Michelle Giacometti running
for Cadwalder on the speed-up rule, the
junior moved to third when Lindsay
Regan reached on an infield single, and
scored when Wolfe dropped a popup
off the bat of Bilski.
Sarah Fish and Jess Casey then deliv-
ered the knockout blow for the Blue
Devils with a two-run double and an
RBI-single respective to put Old Forge
ahead, 7-1. The senior duo had struck
out in each of their three previous plate
appearances before coming up with the
big hits.
“You put the ball in play and things
happen,” said Revello. “Those three
girls just kept battling at the plate and
came up big for us. It’s nothing new for
this senior group.
“Everyone of them have come up big
for us during their careers.”
Blue Ridge tried to rally in the bot-
tom of the eighth with two straight sin-
gles to start the inning. Marianelli re-
tired Carissa Hawk on another short
flyball to Nemetz, and Ucci on a one-
hopper back to the circle for two quick
outs. But Rupakus doubled to cut the
deficit to 7-3.
There would be no comeback howev-
er as Marianelli retired Salinkas on a
grounder to Bilski at first which the se-
nior took herself to set off another Old
Forge celebration.
“Once the postseason started we real-
ly wanted to come through and show
everyone we could get the fourth (dis-
trict title) and we did,” said Bilski. “It
feels real good to win this and go on to
the state playoffs.”
Marianelli and Nemetz each had two
hits for the Blue Devils as eight of the
nine hitters in the lineup smacked at
least one hit.
Old Forge will take on District 3
champ Greenwood (17-3) in the first
round of the PIAA Class 1A Tourna-
ment at Lebanon Valley College on
Monday at 2 p.m. The Blue Devils de-
feated Claysburg-Kimmel at LVC in
the Eastern Final in 2009
Greenwood won the Tri-Valley
League and is paced by pitcher Anna
Heggenstaller who was 5-0 with a 0.88
ERA. Heggenstaller also led the TVL
with a .583 average and 17 RBI. A win
puts Old Forge in the PIAA Quarterfi-
nals on Thursday against the winner of
the Wyalusing-West Branch game at a
site and time to be determined.

score Long with the first run of the
game, and Avvisato smacked a single to
center to drive in Fultz, giving Old
Forge (14-3) a 2-0 lead.
The Blue Devils played small ball in
the fourth after Gary Puckett walked to
lead off the inning. Mike Vieira re-
placed Puckett via the speed-up rule
with Chris Talipski coming to the plate.
DiMattia called for Talipski to sacri-
fice and the senior dropped down a per-
fect bunt in front of home plate which
he beat out for a single. Goodall
matched Talipski with a bunt for a sin-
gle down the third base line which
Miller fielded and threw wide of first
allowing Vieira to score after beating
the throw home.
“It is a sacrifice bunt and we work on
it hard all year,” said DiMattia. “But the
fact is we do a good job of putting pres-
sure on teams defensively and make the
third baseman field the ball on the first
one. We then make Miller come off the
mound twice in a row to try and get the
ball on the others and it worked out.
“We put a lot of pressure on teams
with our speed and athletic ability, and
even if it is a straight sacrifice it’s a
tough play for them to make.”
The play on Goodall’s bunt not only
allowed Old Forge to take a 3-0 lead,
but also put runners on second-and-
third with no outs. Martinelli then blew
the game open with a shot to the left
centerfield gap for a two-run double.
But the Blue Devils were not done.
Long bunted for another single to
give Old Forge first-and-third before
the speedy senior duo at the top of the
Blue Devils order executed a double
steal in which Martinelli easily stole
home for a 6-0 lead.
“That’s been out mentality all sea-
son,” said Long of the Blue Devils
bunting and running. “We want to
make teams play to us, and if they can’t
do the little things right, then we take
advantage.”
Goodall retired the side in the fourth
before Benko and Tanner Holmes sand-
wiched two one-out singles around a
double down the right field line by Er-
ich Aten to put Trail on the board, 6-2.
Mason Mecke then singled home Aten
one out later to cut the Lions deficit to
6-3, but Puckett ended the threat by
throwing out Mecke to end the inning.
Old Forge responded quickly with
two runs in the sixth after Long fol-
lowed a leadoff walk to Martinelli with
a double down the first base line. A
passed ball allowed Martinelli to score
from third before Fultz delivered a sac-
rifice fly to center to score Long for an
8-3 lead.
Goodall got six of the next seven bat-
ters, including the final four of the
game to preserve the win and send the
Blue Devils back to the state tourna-
ment. He finished the game scattering
seven hits and two walks over seven in-
nings while striking out six.
Long led Old Forge at the plate with a
3-for-4 day, three stolen bases and three
runs scored. Martinelli also stole three
bases and scored two runs to go with
two hits and a walk, and Talipski reac-
hed base three times with a single, walk
and when he was hit with a pitch. He
also stole two bases and scored a run.
“We are going to celebrate this one,”
said Martinelli. “Playing on this field,
this is the big stage. And as seniors, we
love this atmosphere of being in the big
game. It’s a feeling like no other.
“But then we know as a squad to get
back to work. Four games is all it takes
to win the whole thing. We have the
pitching, the speed. We can hit and play
defense. We’re ready to make a run.”
DiMattia agreed with his starting
second baseman as he soaked in the
moment after the game.
“This is probably the greatest thing I
could have dreamed of when I came
back here,” said the first-year skipper
who also became the first person to win
gold medals as a player and head coach
at Old Forge High School. “This is the
most fun I have had around baseball in
a long time. These guys work extreme-
ly hard, and they never quit.
“I told them after the game, they have
won a lot of district medals in baseball
and basketball but it would be nice to
put a PIAA gold one in the middle. It’s
down to 16 teams and someone has to
win four straight. Why not us?”
Old Forge will face District 4 cham-
pion Muncy (18-5) on Monday at Con-
nell Park in Scranton at 4:30 p.m. The
Indians have won 12 of their last 13
games, and outscored its D4 oppo-
nents, 28-4, in three playoff games.
A win by the Blue Devils would put
the team into the PIAA Class 1A Quar-
terfinals on Thursday against either
District 5 champ Salisbury Elk Lick or
District 3 runner-up Lancaster Country
Day at a site and time to be determined.

Mother Nature with all of its
beauty has really blossomed over
the past two weeks. I have recent-
ly witnessed a few amazing
things that I have seen before but
never seem to get tired of. The
early part of spring was nothing
short of a washout. Every nook
and cranny that could collect rain
runoff did. The reptiles, amphib-
ians and insects that reproduce in
wetlands or vernal pools certainly
hadnoproblemfindinga place to
lay their eggs. The magic of
Mother Nature trulycomes tolife
when you can witness the birth of
God’s creations. I have had that
experience on several occasions.
I hunted the same game land
roads throughout the spring tur-
key season. These trails were of-
ten covered with old tire ruts and
depressions. They were always
filledwithwater andcritters wait-
ingtoreproduce. I walkedaround
the same miniature pond every
other dayfor twoweeks. It started
with a few newts floating around
and before I knew it the bottom
was covered with all kinds of
eggs. I recognized tree frog eggs,
salamander eggs and newt eggs.
They were all shapes and sizes
and they magically appeared at
different times. By the end of the
turkey season, the water hole was
bursting with life. There must
have been five thousand tadpoles
on my last visit.
The birds are certainly nesting
and working hard at feeding their
young. Tree nesting birds may
have a better chance of surviving
than the ground nesters. Tree
chicks are tended too by the
adults and won’t leave the safety
of the nest until they can fly. The
ground nesting birds like turkeys
havebeenstrugglingsincethebe-
ginning. The cold damp evenings
of this rainy spring spells disaster
for them. The same thing could
be said for grouse and pheasants
as well. They have a tendency to
develop colds and malnutrition.
We can only hope that the recent
warm weather didn’t come too
late for our ground nesters.
My morning excursions into
the woods also provided for other
baby wildlife viewing opportuni-
ties. I have already seen baby
opossums, rabbits, skunks and
raccoons. It is important to re-
member the most important rule
for dealing with wildlife of any
age and that is “leave them
alone!” While most babyanimals
look cute and cuddly, they could
bite or scratch you and they may
be carrying a disease such as ra-
bies. Any baby animal is better
off with their parents then at a re-
habilitator.
The same rule applies when
dealing with fawns. Whitetail
deer are also having their young
nowand fawns can appear on the
ground without notice. It is im-
portant to remember that mother
deer will leave their fawns safe
and sound while they are out
feeding. Whitetail deer typically
feed their young in the morning
and evening, leaving the fawns
alone for most of the day. If you
find a fawn, enjoy your discovery
by taking a photo or two and
walking away. The mom will
most likely return. If you are to-
tally convinced that the mom is
no longer taking care of the fawn
for one reason or another, you
should leave it alone and call an
animal rehabilitator. Tonight on
Pennsylvania Outdoor Life, we’ll
walk with Kathy Uhler of the Po-
cono Wildlife Rehabilitation and
Education Center in the Poconos.
She will have a few more tips for
anyone finding a fawn. You can
check out her web site at
www.poconowildlife.org. Nowis
the time to enjoy Mother Nature.
Remember to take a camera be-
cause baby animals are every-
where.

Cuz’s Susquehanna Bar & Grill increased
its lead in the Yatesville Bocce League to two
games by sweeping their matches this week.
Cuz’s consistent play is making it very dif-

The team members are Guy DePascale Sr.,
Tony Russo, Ed Seprish and Guy DePascale

It appears that the remainder of the teams
will just have to concentrate on acquiring as
many as points as possible to secure a playoff

The song chronicles the feelings of vulnerability during a natural di-
saster: Victimsforcethemselvestobelievethat helpisontheway, even
if the situationseems hopeless. This made me thinkabout the concept
of help itself, and howpeople approach it in their daily lives.
Tohelp, toguide, toguard, toteach…all of theseareconsideredhon-
orableactions whendonetobenefit our fellowhumanbeings. Afinite
number of people are quick to lend a helping hand, whether through
volunteer work or simply listening to a friend vent about a problem.
But such people must be careful about giving too much assistance.
Helpingothers, aside frombeinga gooddeed, tends tobe emotionally
and mentally draining. An amateur advisor often gets too personally
involved in the problems of others. Furthermore, what most advice-
seekersforget at onetimeor another isthat evenhelpershavetheir own
issues with which to deal. If you are ‘the resourceful one,’ keen on of-
feringaidtoyour peers, knowthat youyourself canandshouldaskfor
help nowand then. No single hu-
man being has all the answers.
Whenlifebecomesabit toodiffi-
cult tobear, reachout tosomeone
you trust. They might just have
your solution.
Intruth, it isalot easier toinvite
music into one’s life than it is to
invite help. For many, asking for
help translates as admitting
weakness. But this is not true. If
anything, requesting help is sim-
plyadmittingyour humanity, part
of which is a need for other peo-
ple in your life. Chances are, you
won’t belookedat anydifferently
for seekinghelp. Infact, it is vital
to do so, whether you are an ado-
lescent or adult. If you can not
handleall of your problems alone
(which, let’s be honest, noone re-
ally can), they will build up with-
inyour mind. Andasmuchasyou
try to keep them bottled up and
suppressed, sooner or later they
will manifest themselves insome
sort of violent eruption.
While I’m no professional ad-
visor, I ama soon-to-be graduate
who believes that selflessness
originates in selfishness. Help
yourself, maintain your own san-
ity, and keep your emotions in
check; then reach out to save the
rest of the world. After all, if you
can not be your own guardian,
how will you be an effective
guardian to those who need you
most?

Department of Environmental
Protection Alert
As warm weather approaches
and students spend more time
outdoors, the Department of En-
vironmental Protection (DEP)
warns everyone to stay away
from mines and quarries. Active
and abandoned mine sites, with
their steep cliffs, hidden shaft
openings, and deep murky wa-
ters, are attractive to adventure
seekers, but they’re often dead-
ly.
Pennsylvania has the largest
abandoned mine lands problem
in the country. Approximately
one-million Pennsylvanians live
within one mile of a dangerous
abandoned mine, while active
mining operations are found in
all but one of Pennsylvania’s 67
counties.
These sites are often popular
for swimming, exploring, or off-
road riding. Each year dozens of
people are killed as a result of
trespassing at mines and quar-
ries. Since 2000, 31 people have
died in mines and quarries in
Pennsylvania. Nationwide, 249
people have lost their lives at
these dangerous sites. In addi-
tion, rescue personnel risk their
own lives each time they re-
spond to such an incident.
To warn people about the
dangers of these sites, The DEP
has partnered with the federal
Mine Safety Health Administra-
tion (MSHA), other mining
states, and the mining industry
to promote the “Stay Out, Stay
Alive” program.

Montgomery Avenue fifth graders graduate from DARE
The Holy Rosary third grade
class welcomed Atty. Jerry Lan-
gan, who came to discuss Law
Day with them. After talking
about Law Day, he gave them
the opportunity to practice the
law themselves. Atty. Langan
told them about the 7th Amend-
ment to the Constitution, which
provides a trial by jury to a per-
son accused of a crime. And he
used the story of Goldilocks to
do it! The case was: Little Bear
versus Goldilocks. Twelve of
the students were jury members
and listened to the facts of the
case, and others took the parts
of the characters in the story.
After hearing all the facts, the
jury found Goldilocks guilty,
and she had to pay Little Bear
five hundred dollars.
Pictured are the third grade
students and Atty. Langan. The
class and their teacher, Mrs.
Margaret Kishbaugh, would like
to thank Attorney Langan for
taking time from his busy
schedule to provide an enjoya-
