New personal meaning for July 4


Fourth of July. That is, of course, after Im done cooking them. I hunt through press releases and other news stories for the most spectacular fireworks shows to let my kids ooh and ah at the colorful nighttime displays.

my at Ft. Benning, Ga., on Monday. Weve only lived next to Michael for a year now, but his mother, Lisa, and I are cousins through a family tree thats too tangled to sort out here. We spent July 1 with Michael and his family brother, James, and father, Jim for a final cookout just before his departure. Monday was a bit more somber as he climbed into a van with two other young

men from the area just after 1 p.m. For Michael, a West Scranton honors student and track and field athlete for the Invaders, it begins a lifelong ambition to serve his country in a way many never pursue. For his mother, it begins a 10-week waiting period until basic training is completed. For James, it offers an opportunity to tinker with PowerPoint to build a slideshow for his big brother who once expressed dreams of becoming a paleontologist. And for me, it will serve as a reminder why we celebrate. Sure, we honor the occasion with feasts and fire-

works. But at its core, July 4 falls under the same respects of Memorial Day and Veterans Day as an opportunity to honor military service. Its young men and women like Michael and his two fellow new recruits that work to keep us independent. The threats are different from the reasons our forefathers wrote the Declaration of Independence, but they still present very real dangers to our society. On a high note, Michael entered basic training as a private first class after passing enough online courses. I hope its the sign of a fruitful career for my ambitious relative.

Leaders collaborate for July 16-17 event


CRANTON When Ted Michalowski saw graffiti on a large white wall inside the Jackson Street skate park in West Scranton earlier this year, he made a phone call to his former computer lab partner from West Scranton Intermediate School. Lucky for the artist, that lab partner now serves as Scrantons chief of police. He actually approached me when the graffiti was put on this wall up here, Chief Dan Duffy. I was furious when I saw the graffiti on the wall because we had just put our juvenile unit in here. But Michalowski presented a unique solution to the problem outside the recently established West Side Precinct. He wanted to take his experience as an improvisational artist and mural painter to transform the site into what he feels could become a new landmark in West Side. About a dozen artists will join the man known for his Drawing Social events at the

Jim Floryshak addresses Scranton City Council on July 5 over problems created by construction of the new Isaac Tripp Elementary School near his home.

District construction causes headache for homeowner


By RICH HOWELLS rhowells@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON In December of 2002, Jim Floryshak moved into his dream home on Emily Avenue that he built with his wife and son. When the construction of the Scranton School Districts new Isaac Tripp Elementary School began at the end of 2009, however, his new neighbors created a nightmare in his own backyard that are still ongoing. Floryshak first noticed damage to his home in the spring of 2010 when a long crack in his kitchen tile formed along the foundation line, which he believed was caused by construction firm The Quandel Groups use of a vibrating roller. He could hear and feel his china rattle and started seeing water damage in the ceiling above the cracked tile. While Quandel sent an engineer to his property to assess the damage, he said he was never told what they found. A small patch of land that separates his well-manicured lawn from the districts property also became a problem. As dirt eroded underneath the schools fence, it formed thick mud that caked

around two drainage holes, causing standing water to pool and breed mosquitoes just feet away from his inground pool. Floryshak also began finding bags of garbage lined up against his property, which eventually blew Styrofoam insulation and other building materials into his yard that he continued to find this week. The biggest problem, however, was a series of massive dust clouds that bombarded his home almost daily for months, culminating in a great dust storm between Christmas and New Years Eve of 2010 that left his entire home covered in layers of dirt. Dirt seeped through doorways and windows, stuck to siding, and creeped into his pick-up truck. Negotiations allegedly broke down when he suggested to the district, Quandel, and Latona Trucking that he might consider litigation. Floryshak said he even discussed the final grading of the land between their properties, part of which he owns, with Project Superintendent David Cook of Quandel and David Jumper of Latona, but he claims they

dumped piles of new rocks on the hill instead of helping to remove the culm bank. Keeping a careful record of his problems, he contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, who cited Quandel on June 2. While Quandel began running a water truck for the first time ever on the site to quell the dust issues and offered to power wash Floryshaks home on June 5, he felt that most of his issues continued to be ignored. On June 16, Floryshak sent a certified letter to city Licensing, Inspections, and Permits Director Mark Seitzinger asking for his help, copying the letter to City Solicitor Paul Kelly, Jr. City Council reacts At Scranton City Councils July 5 meeting, he said he was at a loss for who he should turn to next.

SCRANTON City Council unanimously introduced legislation on Tuesday that will prohibit the Scranton Recreation Authority from charging city residents an admission fee to swim at Nay Aug Park. Since the summer began, council has criticized the authority and city administration for the closing of the Novembrino pool in West Scranton and the Penn Ridge Swim Complex for renovations as well as increasing swimming fees at Nay Aug. Fees increased from $3 to $4, and council said that the authority has refused to negotiate those rates or give discounts to groups such as the ScrantonLackawannaCountyTaxpayers Association. Association member Bill Jackowitz told council last week that they paid for 464 childrentoswimduringthegroups annual Kids Swim Free program and did not receive a group rate despite one being offered to other large groups. The program benefits children from low income families. Councilman Frank Joyce felt that all fees charged by the Recreation Authority should be approved by council. The authority has pretty much been given the will and the right to charge whatever they want as far as pool fees with no one to report to besides the administration, Joyce said. He also questioned what the majority of the fees paid for when the city budget largely pays for the lifeguards and equipment needed to run the pools, asking if pool fees went towards paying authority solicitor Paul Kelly, Jr.s salary. The $4 a day really adds up over the course of a month. Another reason why I support this legislation is every year, we see kids on the news that there are swimming in the (Nay Aug) gorge. The fire fighters are called, and sometimes theyre saved and other times they arent, Council Vice President Pat Rogan added.

Iftheswimmingwasfree,all the children could go to the pooland not risk going out into the gorge and swimming there. The legislation asks that citizens show proof of their residency to enter the pool area for free, although the authority has cited enforcement problems similar to this in the past. The resolution passed 4-0, as CouncilmanBobMcGoffwasabsent. Novembrino pool issue ongoing At their June 28 meeting, council also passed legislation drafted by council solicitor Boyd Hughes to transfer funds the Urban Development Action Grant second repayment account to an account to pay for lifeguards and the purchase of pool chemicals and supplies so that Novembrino pool could be reopened. If the mayor chooses to veto this legislation, it will be placed on councils agenda for an override vote at the next regularly scheduled meeting, Council President Janet Evans commented on Tuesda. The winners and losers are the children, and City Council doesnt want the children to lose. On Thursday, Mayor Chris Doherty vetoed the legislation. In a letter addressed to City Clerk Nancy Krake, the mayor said that council violated the Home Rule Charter and Administrative Code by not discussing this change with him first. He said that council illegally and improperly attempted to create a special city account to deposit the UDAG repayments and that use of these funds falls completely to the discretion of the Mayor. Additionally, he wrote that the Department of Housing and Urban Development does notallowthesefundstobeused for items such a lifeguard. Krake said on Friday that council disagrees with the mayors points in the letter and will address them at length during their next meeting.

Off-duty detective spots burglary suspect


By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON A city man who allegedly burglarized a Fig Street home, taking $800 in cash and credit cards he used in Scranton and Taylor, was discovered by an off-duty Scranton detective on July 2. David Willis, 57, of Remington Ave., Scranton, is charged with burglary, criminal trespassing, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, forgery and access device fraud for the alleged June 30 burglary and fraudulent purchases. According to the affidavit from Scranton police: Scranton Ptlm. Jamie Tobin was dispatched to a Fig Street home June 30 for a report of a burglary. Homeowner James Shaffer told police he had gone to bed at midnight and discovered his front door open and a kitchen window left open that following morning. A black leather briefcase containing $800 was taken from a nearby television room, along with another $65 and numer-

ous credit cards. When he called creditors about his cards, Shaffer learned that a stolen Walmart Visa was used at about 9:15 a.m. on the morning of the burglary. Stolen credit Willis cards were also used at the Turkey Hill convenient market on Meridian Avenue and at the Walgreens at South Main Avenue and Luzerne Street. In all, police say $750.31 was charged to the stolen cards. In reviewing surveillance footage, Scranton Detective Michael Schultz observed a black male, possibly in his 50s enter the Turkey Hill shop after driving up in a red minivan with the front drivers side and rear passengers side hubcaps missing.

Willis was arraigned on the charges on July 2 and held for $35,000 bail. He waived a preliminary hearing on July 6, according to court records.

New delinquent tax collector discusses policy


By RICH HOWELLS rhowells@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON City Council held a public caucus with Northeast Revenue Service, LLC on Tuesday to discuss the private firm taking over the citys delinquent real estate tax collection. Council tabled a contract for professional services with NRS and Caverly, Shea, Phillips, and Rodgers, LLC at their May 31 meeting to allow discussion of the agreement before final approval at a June 14 caucus with the Scranton Redevelopment Authority and other city officials, but that meeting was cancelled. NRS President John Rodgers and Treasurer Sean Shamany attended the Tuesday caucus to answer questions by council about the amended contract, which will put them in charge of collecting the citys delinquent real estate taxes from 2004 through 2010 for the next two years with the option for a oneyear renewal. The Wilkes-Barrebased firm began collecting delinquent real estate taxes for Luzerne County in May of last year. Were looking forward to being awarded this contract to get started and get the ball rolling, Shamany said. Council President Janet Evans began by comparing NRS to Northeast Credit & Collections, Scrantons former delinquent tax and garbage fee collector that was heavily criticized by council last year. Evans said NCC had the ability to add 23 additional costs to the face value and interest of tax delinquencies, which could amount to minimum of $2,660 in fees for taxpayers. In contrast, NRS fee will charge 15 percent on all delinquent taxes and interest received, or around $405. Both figures do not include cost of advertising, she added. NCCs fees made it difficult to impossible for taxpayers to clean up their delinquencies, Evans said. Our goal is to collect the taxes, but its also to do it the right way, to treat people the right way, Rodgers said. We want to be fair. We dont want to over-penalize people. Shamany and Rodgers told council that they offer many incentives to taxpayers, including

Northeast Revenue Service, LLC, Treasurer Sean Shamany, left, President John Rodgers, right, presented their plans on the collection of delinquent real estate taxes during a public caucus this week.

a grace period of 90 days for the years 2007 through 2010, with no liens filed during this period. NRS will offer payment plans with no additional fees, and no lien will be filed if payments are continually made. Taxpayers will have the option to pay online with credit or debit cards or by check, and they can also pay at area banks that are yet to be designated. It is our position that we will never charge more fees than the face value of the taxWe just dont feel thats appropriate, Rodgers said. In terms of enforcement, Shamany said that one of their most effective tools in collecting Luzerne Countys delinquent taxes was launching their Web site, which made the tax information open to the public. They also mail monthly reminders and will not implement the use of an outside collection agency unless it was approved by city administration. Answering concerns from Councilman Pat Rogan about complains council received from taxpayers being harassed by consistent phone calls from debt collectors, Shamany said NRS does not plan to use phone calls often. He added that the firm plans to hold a treasurers sale next year. Rodgers said he would like to

cooperate with city officials to agree on collection policies and procedures and will also help the city work through the Scranton Development Authoritys defaulted $1.56 million loan

from Pennstar Bank. He told Evans that NRS would provide annual audits and monthly statements to city so they can monitor their progress. Evans asked that they operate

within the city treasurers office in order to restore accountability and efficiency to the delinquent tax collection process and grant convenience and acceptability to the taxpayers, which the firm agreed to. Council seemed pleased with the firms answers to their inquiries. Listening to you gentlemen, I find it very refreshing that we do have a company in this economic situation that provides the accessibility, the transparency, the flexibility, as you stated, to work with government and City Council with different ideas on collections and stuff like that, Councilman Jack Loscombe said. A big factor today, something that is missing in all collection areas, is the human element, and I saw how you gentlemen touched on that from the very beginningI think it will greatly benefit all the residents of the city and help us to get back on track to fiscal responsibility. Legislation to approve NRS contract with the city is expected to return to councils agenda next Tuesday.

SCRANTON - City police filed criminal charges against a man after he allegedly was reported naked in the hallway of his apartment building on July 3. Brian Joyce, 41, of Wyoming Avenue, Scranton, faces charges of indecent exposure, institutional vandalism, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. According the affidavit: Police received a call from Joyces neighbor stating he was lying in the hallway with his genitals and buttocks full exposed. After police arrived on scene, they found Joyce in the elevator sleeping, and the smell of alco-

hol was emitting from his breath. After several attempts, police finally were able to awaken Joyce and asked him to put pants on to cover his exposed body parts. Joyce refused, forcing authorities to wrap a bed sheet around him before escorting him out of the building and into a transport vehicle. Once Joyce was in the holding cell, he then started to urinate on the sink, walls and floor of the cell. After police placed him in an isolation cell, he allegedly yelled explicit terms at the officers. Joyce was arraigned July 3 and held for $10,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for July 11.

After months of investigation, a Vandling resident faces charges after his alleged sexual conversations with a minor were found on his computer. Michael Piasecki, 38, of Oak Street, has been charged with communication with a minor with sexual intent and corruption of a minor. According to the affidavit: Police received a complaint in April from the 14year-old girls mother that her child was being sent sexually-themed messages via Facebook. The messages that came from Piaseckis Facebook account were copied by investigators. As they copied the messages, Piasecki allegedly messaged the victim. Officers responded as the girl, stating that she was grounded and could not use the computer. Officers went to Piaseckis home to speak to him about

the conversations, which he said did not contain anything sexual. When the messages were read to him by police, he became quiet and fidgety. Before leaving the home, officers seized Piaseckis computer and cell phone. In May, the computer forensics were returned to the police and multiple conversations between Piasecki and several females were discovered. The conversations included Piasecki asking about oral sex techniques and acts they could possibly perform when his children were not home. Forest City Assistant Police Chief Lee Rowan and Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Derek Fozard were the arresting officers. Piasecki was arraigned on July 1 and released on $20,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing set for July 8 was continued to July 19.

SCRANTON - Scranton police found three underage kids allegedly in possession of drugs and alcohol behind the Giant Food Market on Nay Aug Avenue in June according to a criminal complaint filed July 1. Mary Pierce, 18, of Monsey Avenue, Scranton, faces charges of possession of small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia for the alleged incident. According to the affidavit: City police received a call that teenagers were near the railroad tracks behind the Giant Food Market drinking and using illegal drugs. As the officer on scene approached, he observed three teens one male and two females sitting near open containers of 40 oz. bottles of Hurricane malt liquor. One of the females, identified to officers as Maura Clark, fled the scene. James Saffarano, 17, identified himself to officers, and Pierce opened her purse to retrieve her drivers license. As she did, police allegedly observed a marijuana pipe and placed her under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia. Saffarano and Clark do not face charges in relation to the incident, according to court records accessed Friday. Sgt. Michael Mayer was the arresting officer. Charges were filed by summons on July 1, and a preliminary hearing is set for July 26.

SCRANTON Former Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak is seeking a new trial overturning his conviction on bribery, extortion and other corruption charges. Munchak on June 21 was found guilty of conspiracy to commit theft of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, conspiracy to commit extortion under color of right, extortion under color of right, subscribing and filing a materially false tax return and tax evasion. He resigned his post as Republican minority commissioner the next day. His co-defendant, former commissioner Robert Cordaro, was found guilty of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, extortion under color of official right, money laundering, racketeering, tax evasion and other charges. A motion for new trial filed by Munchaks attorney, Christopher T. Powell Jr., contends that Munchak was found guilty of three counts involving bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds and three counts of extortion under color of official right, and that both sets of charges concerned exactly the same cash payments made by Don Kalina of Highland Associates in May and July of 2005. The motion contends that a person can-

Therefore, either the bribery or extortion charge should have been ruled inconsistent by U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo. Munchak is seeking a new trial or for Caputo to not enter the verdict against him, ef-

fectively acquitting him. The U.S. Attorneys office will have an opportunity to respond to the motion and Caputo will issue a decision at a later date. Munchaks sentencing is scheduled for September 28. He faces up to 93 years in prison and more than $2 million in fines.

SCRANTON A man arrested Wednesday morning for terroristic threats and harassment regarding a protection from abuse order allegedly later snapped a sprinkler head inside his holding cell at police headquarters, flooding that area of the building. Freddie Lee Lloyd, 29, whose address is listed as unknown in police records, was originally charged with terroristic threats, harassment, unlawful restraint, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

alarms to an agency of public safety, institutional vandalism, criminal mischief, tampering with a fire apparatus and disorderly conduct. According to affidavits against Lloyd: Police were dispatched to 111 Wyoming Ave., Scranton, at 10:58 a.m. on July 6 for a report of a PFA violation. Scranton Ptlm. Michael Bryndzia met with Desiree Parker and Michael Mancuso who claimed Lloyd contacted Parker that

morning following the filing of the PFA last prior weekend. Lloyd was allegedly dragging her by the arm and leading her into Curry Donut Shop and told her she was not going anywhere until Mancuso left. Bryndzia gave a look out call for Lloyd based on a description given by Parker and Mancuso, and he was seen at least 3 times until he was taken into custody at the corner of Mifflin Street and Lackawanna Avenue at 11:30 a.m. That afternoon, at approximately 3 p.m., Ptlm. Pat Bastek observed Lloyd in cell #1 at police headquarters where he was being detained. Bastek saw Lloyd allegedly climb into the sink inside his cell and reach for

something in the top corner of the room. When the camera became blurred, officers went to the holding cell area and found water flowing heavily from the area of the sprinkler head, down the walls, and out of the cell. Chief Dan Duffy and Sgt. Bob McCool worked to turn off water to the sprinkler system, and fire department officials advised that the sprinkler head was forcibly broken. Lloyd was arraigned on the aforementioned charges, along with an additional count of institutional vandalism and violation of a protective order, on July 6. He was held for a combined $15,000 bail, and a preliminary hearing is set for July 13.

mittee members gathered as Lou Parise of Parise Monuments, Carbondale, took a rubbing of the engraved names of the nine men to match lettering used and add Loftus to the eternal list. Its expected that the actual engraving could occur within two weeks, Parise said. Loftus name was considered to be the final piece of the puzzle, according to Meyers. However, the name of an 11th officer, Sgt. James K. Sable, was brought to the departments attention on Wednesday, according to Scranton Police Chief Dan Duffy. Sable died of a heart attack while investigating a fatal crash on March 1, 1986. The documentary which will now include 11 fallen officers is expected to be released to their family members and current members of the department. Were excited about the documentary because its actually honoring all of those whove fallen, and its also honoring those who are active members of the police department today, Duffy said. City Controller Roseann Novembrino, who spearheaded fire fighter and police memorial efforts for several years, said members of the police department conducted the initial research into the fallen officers. She thanked Meyers on Tuesday for his dedication to uncovering Loftus identity. The reason were here today is so no one will be forgotten, Novembrino said.

WASHINGTON When Bob Casey of Scranton crushed incumbent GOP Sen. Rick Santorum in 2006 with 59 percent of the vote, it was the first time in more than four decades that a Keystone State Democrat won a full term in the U.S. Senate. Now, as Casey begins to gear up for his re-election bid, some independent analysts are wondering if 2012 will represent another easy campaign for the freshman senator with the famous Pennsylvania political name. Casey, the son of the former two-term governor, starts off the campaign season in better shape politically than several other Democrats also elected in 2006 who are now facing tough reelection fights, such as Sens. Jon Tester of Montana and Claire McCaskill of Missouri, said Jennifer Duffy, the Senate analyst for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. Casey doesnt have overwhelmingly positive poll numbers, Duffy notes. But he also lacks a credible GOP opponent, and he already has a pile of campaign cash he raised $1.1 million during the first quarter and had $2.1 million on hand as of

Casey

ond quarter Caseys numbers are good, but they are not stellar, Duffy said, cautioning that it is too early to rule out a possible stiff GOP challenge to Casey. But Republicans certainly have struggled with finding a candidate. A Quinnipiac University poll released last month found that by a 47-26 percent margin Pennsylvania voters approve of the job Casey is doing, with 27 percent undecided. They said by a similar margin, 47-31, that Casey deserves to be re-elected. Running against an unnamed GOP challenger, Casey was ahead 47-32 percent, including 44-26 percent among independent voters, Quinnipiac found. Several big-name GOP candidates have so far declined to get into the race, including state Sen. Jake Corman, RCentre, the political web site Politics PA has reported. Lesser-known candidates who have said they intend to run, such as Tea Party leader

March 30 with another fundraising report due out by July 15 following the June 30 end of the sec-

Laureen Cummings and attorney Marc Scaringi, didnt even rate being matched up against Casey in the Quinnipiac poll, Politics PA noted. It appears the state GOP might be pinning its hopes on a wealthy candidate who can spend his or her own millions on a race against Casey. Still, you cant beat somebody with nobody, and right now nobody is emerging as a possible Republican challenger to Sen. Bob Casey Jr., said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, when the poll was released June 15. Thats a big reason why the University of Virginias Center for Politics has rated Casey as likely, right now, to win re-election in the latest Crystal Ball predictions by center director Larry Sabato. The Keystone State is another place where Republican hopes are fading against a first-term Democratic incumbent, Bob Casey, Sabato wrote. As in Michigan and Ohio, members of the Republican U.S. House delegation apparently have taken a pass. Casey starts off in a good place, but you have to see who eventually gets in on the Republican side, Duffy said.

TAYLOR - A Peckville resident faces several charges from the Taylor Police Department after allegedly pulling a gun on a Taylor resident. Daniel Newton, 24, of Gino Merli Dr., faces charges of aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats and disorderly conduct after the July 5 incident. According to the affidavit: Newton allegedly had an argument with Adam Yackoboitz on July 4 and that on July 5, Newton was looking for Yackoboitz. Newton pulled up to Yackoboitzs house while he was outside with his kids and demanded a fight. Yackoboitz declined, and the two started arguing verbally. After the exchange, Newton allegedly pulled a Glock .45 caliber handgun and said, Ill (expletive) kill you! Yackoboitzs girlfriends mother stepped in front of the gun and told Newton to leave. The arresting officer was Pltm. Thomas McGovern. Newton was arraigned on July 5 and a preliminary hearing is set for July 11. He is being held for a lack of $10,000 bail.

SABLE
Continued from page 8

good guy, Mr. Sable said. He was a great, great Scrantonian. Sgt. Sable passed on March 1, 1986, at age 60. While driving the command car on a night that Mr. Sable believes included three fatalities, his father was delivering the unfortunate news to parents who lived on Pittston Avenue about the death of a teenage driver. He suffered a heart attack and passed away inside the home. Mr. Sable, who was 23 at the time of his fathers passing, said he hesitated to bring the sergeants name forward for the police memorial because he was unsure of the police departments policy regarding on-duty deaths. The policy for several years, he said, varied from that of the fire departments criteria. I have a lot of emotions about it, Mr.

Sable, a chauffer with the Scranton Fire Department and former Scranton reserve patrolman, said. It makes me proud. Its nice when a good guy gets some recognition after serving the community for so many years. Sgt. Sable joined the department at age 35 and worked until his untimely death at age 60. Prior to that, he worked as a railroad blacksmith, according to Mr. Sable. His strength once allowed him to save the life of a drunk driver. One time, he tore one of his biceps. He had a crash on the Spruce Street Complex before it looked modern like it is now. The car was dangling over the edge. He hung onto the fence, and he reached into the car to grab a hold of the guy. The car slid and went over the edge, and he was still hanging onto him, Mr. Sable recalled. His father loved the city he served as much as he enjoyed his profession. I remember as a young boy walking

around looking at buildings and him telling me what each building was, who was in there, and who was in there 40 years ago, Mr. Sable said. While the addition of Sgt. Sables name to the police monument brings a bit of closure to his familys history, he hopes another wont be added anytime soon. We hope in our lifetime that we never have to add another name to the police monument or the fire one. Ive seen two of them. Thats two too many, he said. Along with the loss of his father, Sable said hes dealt with the loss of brother fire fighter James Robeson, who he worked with for 18 years. Sgt. Sable would have turned 85 on July 25, Mr. Sable said, and he plans to bring his mother, Patricia, to police headquarters to see his name etched into granite. We would love to have him here enjoying his retirement. Unfortunately, he was taken from us way too soon.

Source names fired SSA employee


Authority head admits unauthorized conduct, offers no names NEWS ARTS

By RICH HOWELLS and CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES Go Lackawanna staff

CRANTON A source has identified the former Scranton Sewer Authority employee that was terminated for his private use of city equipment at a West Scranton residence earlier this year. The source, who spoke to Go Lackawanna on the condition of anonymity, said that East Collection System Manager Paul Ludovici, of Scranton, was hired in June as a private contractor outside of his work with the authority to help with the installation of an inground pool at a West Side home.
RICH HOWELLS PHOTO / FOR GO LACKAWANNA

When a reporter called the SSA on Friday to ask to speak with Ludovici, they were told that he doesnt work here anymore by a receptionist. Ludovici was allegedly given permission to use the authoritys equipment by a supervisor at the sewer authority, but their identity could not be confirmed. Efforts to reach Ludovici by phone and in person for comment on the matter this week were unsuccessful. SSA Executive Director Eugene Barrett only recently acknowledged that the incident had occurred through two letters dated June 30 that were addressed to City Clerk Nancy Krake. Responding to a June 15 request for information from Scranton City Council, Barrett admitted that unauthorized conduct involving the use of equipment and manpower occurred and that one employee

The Scranton Sewer Authority acknowledged the termination of one employee and suspension of another but has consistently denied additional information on the personnel matter.

was terminated while the other was suspended. No names were provided in either letter. The time and manpower used were not substantial, Barrett said in the first letter. Barrett wrote that the authority does not intend to pursue criminal charges at this time and added that the authority is unaware of any employees actually doing personal business while on the clock outside of this incident. When asked by a reporter about the incident after the authoritys June 28 meeting, Barrett would not acknowledge that the incident occurred and refused further comment, stating that it was a personnel matter. Authority solicitor Carl Greco also declined comment after the

meeting, and phone calls placed previously to the authority were not returned. Reached for comment this week, homeowner Raymond Boynton confirmed that he hired a sewer authority employee as a private contractor to remove dirt on his property following the installation of the pool, but he did not implicate Ludovici in any way. He added that the equipment was only on his property for a short time before a hydraulic line malfunctioned. Go Lackawanna has filed a right-to-know request with the city of Scranton for current licenses held by PM Ludovici Construction, which shares the same address as Ludovicis

home, according to online business listings. No corporate records for the business could be located in an online directory through the Pennsylvania Department of State. The authority has come under fire in recent weeks by council for their lack of cooperation and transparency with both residents and legislators, the awarding of a general/mechanical work contract to Michael F. Ronca & Sons Inc., and their approval of a 47 percent preliminary rate increase for commercial and residential users. Council Vice President Pat Rogan, who has suggested privatizing the authority, submitted a right-to-know request to the authority last week, asking for a

list of all employees and their salaries on January 1, 2001, and June 28, 2011, along with a justification for rate increases over the last decade, among other information. Rogan addressed the Ludovici matter again at Tuesdays council meeting. Absolutely it should be a public issue. When you have public property being used by a private person, thats a public issue. Thats why we have City Council meetings for issues like thatRates have gone up. People demand accountability, and it looks like money is just being squandered at the Sewer Authority, Rogan said.

Recalling Rocky Glen Park


or more than 100 years, the summer leisure and recreational mecca in the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valleys was Rocky Glen Park. Rocky Glen traces its beginnings to a Philadelphia auction in 1885 where 225 acres of land, including a 40-acre lake, was purchased by Scranton entrepreneur Arthur Frothingham for $15. Frothingham operated the Lyceum Theater on Penn Avenue and the Frothingham Theater and Arcade on Wyoming Avenue in Scranton.

MINING HISTORY

ROBERT SAVAKINUS
The remaining Frothingham interests in the park were purchased in 1921 by John Nallin and Joe Jennings for $60,000. Through these years, Rocky Glen became the popular recreation and amusement destination to all local communities. It was a wonderful summertime escape for the laborers who toiled in the coal mines, railroads and textiles mills throughout the week, looking forward to their time off work when they could unwind and spend quality time with their loved ones. Most people traveled to the park using the Laurel Line, which in 1921 brought more than 223,000 passengers to the park. This figure was far exceeded a few years later when almost 245,000 tickets were sold in 1924. Ethnic festivals including

sions stands in the park beginning in 1924 and became part owner in 1936. At this time some of the parks most popular attractions were added including the famous Swiss Cottage, which opened in 1937 at a cost of $24,000; the Fun House, built in 1946 at a cost of $25,000; and the Dance Hall, which was built in 1947 for $100,000. Sterling took full ownership

in 1951, and the park thrived under his management. He was often described as generous to a fault with an unending commitment to the parks success. One the most famous rides was the Million Dollar Roller Coaster which was built in 1945 at a cost of $100,000. It was called ahead of its time

In its early years, the park was used primarily for skating, swimming, and boating. By 1904, rides were added to develop the site into the type of amusement park we remember today. AJ Duffy, former manager of the Lyceum Theater, purchased part of the park from Frothingham for $100,000 in 1919.

Polish, Welsh, Irish, and Italian days were held and attracted up to 20,000 people a day. Rocky Glen saw its most successful days under the ownership of the Sterling family. Ben Sterling operated conces-

and the Best in the East. During its first three years of operation, three million people rode this massive coater with a peak height of 96 feet and length of the ride at 4,700 feet. After a relatively short lifespan, it was dismantled in 1957. Rocky Glen Park was also a hot spot for top notch entertainment hosting such acts as Guy Lombardo, Jimmy Durante, Harry James, Chuck Connors, The Lone Ranger, and Frank Sinatra. WARM Days, the Mighty 590, at Rocky Glen brought major Rock n Rollers to the regions throughout the 1950s and 1960s attracting up to 50,000 people a day. By the 1970s, Sterling decided it was time to retire to spend more time with his family and sold the park to National Recreational Services of Atlanta, a corporation that operated a chain of Ghost Town Western theme parks throughout the United States. Rocky Glen was transformed into an old Western town complete with gun fighter shootouts, and a saloon with can-can

dancers. Ghost Town in the Glen, as it was called, flourished throughout the 1970s. In 1979, GT Management, owner of several parks in New York and New Jersey, purchased the park. They commissioned a member of the Disney Planning Commission and a designer from the countrys most famous park, Cedar Point Park in Sandusky, Ohio, to renovate it and open a New Rocky Glen Park featuring 33 rides and promoting a return to the traditional family amusement park. By 1983, GT Management was losing interest in the site, so a group of local investors began to lease the park. They added several more rides and brought back the Ethnic Festivals. Concerts were held throughout the 1980s by popular celebrities including Bon Jovi, Jerry Garcia, Ted Nugent and Eddie Money. In January 1985, new stricter

state laws were enacted for park safety with tougher regulations, which made it more difficult for smaller parks like Rocky Glen to continue operations. This, combined with increased competition from Mega Parks like Great Adventure and Hershey Park, forced Rocky Glen to close for good in 1987. However, the park remains very much alive in local residents hearts and minds. In 2008, the Lackawanna Historical Society dedicated a state historical marker at the site to commemorate its significant role in providing entertainment and recreation to Northeastern Pennsylvanians for more than 100 years. In 2009, the Rocky Glen Park documentary premiered at Steamtown National Historic Site to an audience of more than 800 people. DVDs continue to sell well. Another piece of the parks history lives on at the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Company Picnic - the original train ride. Dont miss your chance to take a train ride down memory lane on July 28 through 30 at the annual picnic held at the fire company grounds along Route 106 in Clifford.

Even if they could call us and say, Hey, listen, I read your letter and theres nothing I could do for you. This is my last resortIt shouldnt have to come to this. Councilman Jack Loscombe visited the property last week and agreed with Floryshaks assessment. They are valid concernsMr. Floryshak has made a major investment in this city, and hes in an area where there are some drainage problems now that there are lawsuits over, Loscombe said. I was beyond belief with the amount of dirt and dust that covered his property. A visit by Go Lackawanna to the property on June 5 confirmed many of the issues the

property owner had addressed on Tuesday. Quandel is not a good neighbor. The Scranton School District hasnt been a good neighbor. Latona Trucking hasnt been a good neighbor, Floryshak said. City and Quandel willing to work on issues When contacted on Friday, Seitzinger said that the LIPs department is in the midst of responding to the matter. The Department of Environmental Protection has been involved with this from day one. Weve been in contact with the DEP, and the DEP has been in contact with us. Once they get involved, they handle air quality issues, so its really their jurisdiction in terms of the air quality. However, we have spoken to the contractors to rectify problems, Seitzinger said. Project Manager Cameron Readnour of The Quandel Group confirmed on Friday that they had been cited by the DEP, but said that David Cook has met with Floryshak and

many of the neighbors surrounding the elementary school project on a regular basis to keep them abreast of whats happening and how the project is going. He said that they would been in contact with him soon to come to an agreeable resolution. We recognize that there was an issue there. Our superintendent, our project manager on site, had spoken with Mr. Floryshak and we told him that were willing to work with him to bring some satisfaction, Readnour said. The Quandel Group, on behalf of the Scranton School District, would be happy to meet with Mr. Floryshak and review these issuesWere certainly not walking away from any issues. David Jumper of Latona Trucking said he is no longer involved with the project and was unsure of who was working on it currently. Bob Sheridan, chairman of the Buildings and Grounds Committee for the Scranton School Board, did not return a request for comment.

CRANTON When art enthusiasts came to downtown Scranton last week, the last thing they may have suspected was the more than 50 people gathered at the corner of Spruce Street and North Washington Avenue dancing to Lady Gagas Born This Way.

But the flash mob organized by the executives at Marleys Mission, a local equine therapy organization, was just what founder April Loposky wanted to give thanks for the support theyve received since opening last year.

We do a lot of fundraisers so I really wanted to do something to give back to community, to thank them for all that they do, Loposky said. It took 10 days for the group from Marleys Mission to organize and prepare the flash mob. Loposky spoke with her daughters dance instructor from the Occhipinti Dance Company in Moscow who thought the mob was a great idea. Other planned events to support the mission include a golf tournament that will be held at the Mt. Airy Casino and Resort in August and an art gala tentatively set for February 2012. Loposky hinted that other unique

The exploits of one of the Boston-based bands guitarist were chronicled on 2006s Fading American Dream, and hes still at it, according to frontman Mike McColgan.

ut of 68 scheduled acts to perform at the Vans Warped Tour on July 14, only one is a Scranton-based band. Motionless In White, a hardcore metal band that is signed to Fearless Records in Orlando, Fla., has had major success in the music scene around the country headlining tours and festivals over the past five years.

Boston-based Street Dogs take their third trip on the Warped Tour this year.

All joking aside, Street Dogs, formed in 2002 after McColgans brief history as a Boston city fire fighter, continues on its third run on the Warped Tour including a stop in Scranton on Thursday, July 14, where they will play on the AP/Tillys stage. McColgan said he enjoys the festival tour for the same reasons fans often do - the opportunity to check out bands like Lionize, Against Me!, Big D and the Kids Table and discovering new acts like Bad Rabbits and Sharks. Despite the fun, theres a lot of hard work to accomplish. It sort of is a boot camp, McColgan said. Every day, around 9:30 a.m., youre finding out what time youre going to go on stage. That could be anywhere from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., so you have to be flexible and be ready to go at the drop of a hat Theres a lot of hard work that goes into it, for sure. Throughout their career, Street Dogs have carried a proworker mentality through their music something that McCol-

gan said was instilled in him at home. It came from growing up in Boston and having family that was immersed in the labor movement and having people within my family that were in labor unions, he said. I think now its clear to see to most people with any common sense thatthe American Dream is close to being dead and buried. Hopefully, we can get back to having more jobs in the U.S. and actually manufacturing things here, giving people better wages and taxing everybody fairly. Theyve also carried a collection of songs in support and sometimes in criticism of military service, like Final Transmission and Shards of Life. McColgan was previously stationed in Germany during Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield with the 4th division of the 82nd Field Artillery, 3rd Armored Division. I think having had actual experience in the Army kind of show through when I write songs like that. It doesnt make me an authority on the subject or a hero, but Ive walked through that, he said. The band, which released the eponymous Street Dogs through Hellcat Records last

year, realizes the importance of fan service, too. One track, Fighter, originally placed on the 2003 debut Savin Hill, was re-recorded for fans who could no longer find pressings of that first effort. Its been a signature song for us and a song that a lot of our fans gravitated towards, McColgan said. The availability of the Savin Hill record is not great. In punk rock, a lot of pure fans want that physical copy, and we just wanted to give back a little bit. With five releases in nine years, McColgan predicts Street Dogs will re-enter the studio in the spring of 2012. We just want to have a body of work that gives us a reputable legacy. To me, legacy is way more important than success. I could give a rats ass if were ever successful or not. Legacy is what means something to me.

MIW singer Chris Cerulli, keyboardist Joshua Balz, lead guitar Richard Olson and drummer Angelo Parente will play on the Ernie Ball stage on the east coast leg of this years festival. Cerulli, who phoned in right before leaving for the tour, said he has mixed feelings about going out for their longest string of Warped dates. Its definitely the hardest tour ever, he explained. It makes me disgusted when bands that have a bus complain about Warped Tour because all they have to do is come out of their air conditioning for 30 minutes and play a set, then maybe do one signing. While on the other hand, were always walking around meeting people, and really connecting with as many fans as we possibly can. We have done it in a van, without a driver and without a production crew. Weve driven through the entire night and been through hell. But nothing good comes easy, so I guess to play in front of that many people, you have to pay your dues. The bands hard work has recently paid off. Their latest album, Creatures, debuted on the Billboard 200 charts, and is still climbing. MIW has been a common name on other festival

bills, too, most recently earning a slot on Bamboozle at Giants Stadium in May 2011. Cerulli could not be happier with the December release. This is the first group of music we are truly excited about, he said. All of the other music we were happy about, but it just wasnt quite there yet. This record is finally what we wanted to be doing and what weve always wanted to accomplish as a band. Its all dark and scary, and everything we want. For as difficult as it may be to survive Warped Tour, the band could not be happier to be considered for this years tour. Its just a matter of reaching as many people as we can, explained Cerulli. You always have to compete with other bands playing at the same time at the other stages. We just want people to walk by and notice us and at the same time connect with our current fans. Warped has always been about showing the best possible bands at that time. At times it was punk rock. This year its leaning towards metal and hiphop, but its still always the best current acts in the underground scene, if you will. And that just makes us basically honored to be able to continue to play it. All of the fame and opportunities have not changed the Scranton boys attitudes either. Theyre still grounded and remember why they play music. We dont want to see a million records; its just about playing honest music we believe in and finding people who believe in it, too. I think there are a lot of people out there who believe the same things that I do, and I think without music, none of us would be able to deal with them. Thats the sole reason I do what I do - to give people something to relate to.

Hell hath no fury like a fanboy scorned, and if theres one way to scorn comic book fans, its by making dramatic changes to their favorite characters. DC Comics plans to do just that in September by re-launching over 50 major titles in their catalog, including those that center around flagship characters like Batman and Superman. Each will start again at issue number one, effectively ending all previous stories and starting fresh.
This means that some of these cultural icons will undergo minor alterations, like updated costumes, while others will have their origins overhauled completely. While some readers are eager to see these superheroes, many in existence for over 70 years, re-imagined for the 21st century, others are ready to take to the streets, or at least the conventions, in protest. Disgruntled fans are planning a lighthearted protest walk at the San Diego Comic Con on July 23 to express their displeasure with the groundbreaking decision. Over 400 fans have already agreed to march via Facebook, and while it may initially seem silly to hold such a demonstration over fictional characters, I can appreciate why they feel the way they do. Ive been reading comics for the majority of my life, over 20 years, so to say that I feel a kinship with my favorite characters would probably be an

understatement. As entire universes and histories were established over decades of work, literary nerds like myself could really pick the brains of these characters and truly get to know them. I not only knew where they came from, but why they were going in the direction that they were. I believed in them, I cheered for them, but more importantly, I knew them. To have their lives simply end one day and then be replaced by imposters in similar get-ups doesnt just feel wrong. It feels like a superhuman slap in the face. While starting over seems like the logical thing to do as these stories get harder to write, where is the reward for loyal readers? Do we even get an ending to those old stories, and if so, could any conclusion possibly live up to the incredible expectations fans would place on them? It seems like anything would be a copout at this point. I grew up with Marvel Comics, specifically the X-Men and Spider-Man, so Ive been through something sort of similar. In 2000, Marvel launched its Ultimate universe, a separate series that retold the stories of Marvel characters with a modern spin. Sound familiar? Some of these stories were interesting, like the more mature take on the Avengers called The Ultimates. Others were simply excuses to rehash old stories that had been told by better writers years before. Marvel had created this alternate universe to appeal to

Joe the Lion suggests cutting her from the herd, getting her away from her current boyfriend (Joe Rogan, an over-the-top boor). Joes lioness wife (Cher) talks up the idea of making Stephanie jealous. The bears offer advice on becoming a predator. And Lead with your puddin cup, Jerome and Bruce (Jon Favreau and Faizon Love) declare. Yeah, it means what you think. The capuchin monkey (Adam Sandler, doing a very funny voice) is lost in reveries about having a thumb. Ive been blessed. And the elephant (Judd Apatow) has the same solution for any awkward moment: Flee. Fleeing is the new fighting. All along, Griffin cant see how sweet and seemingly available the zoos eagle expert and vet (Rosario Dawson) is. Shes into guys who are into animals. Youre like the frickin hippo whisperer, she cracks. Director Frank Coraci, a veteran of Adam Sandlers comic style (The Waterboy), is more at home with the slapstick than the wouldbe romance or the movies darker subtext. Bernie (Nick Nolte), a forlorn gorilla, has long been kept in a cave so he cant repeat his attack on a cruel zookeeper (Donnie Wahlberg). The films silliest scenes involve Griffin dragging Bernie along to Bernies dream eatery, T.G.I. Fridays, where Bernie, supposedly on his way to a costume party, is a hit. The films mix of digital critters and real animals results in far too many shots of this beast or that standing alone in the shot, mouth moving, cracking jokes. But the cuddly, ever-put-upon James takes his comic lumps like a man. His Griffin suffers injuries and indignities and lets us laugh at him as he does. No matter where the script wanders and where the direction founders, at some point, James comic instincts take over. And this time, they dont let him down.

What: Horrible Bosses Starrring: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston Directed by: Seth Gordon Rated: R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug material

serves to have that pass revoked, shredded and set afire. As the yes-man to an ubercreep executive (Kevin Spacey), Bateman makes an utterly unsympathetic corporate toady who is drinking buddies with Sudeikis and Day. We never learn the basis of their friendship; clear exposition is not the scripts strong suit, and please dont ask me what is. You could find more literate, character-driven entertainment on a TV shopping channel. In any event, the boys beerfests devolve into misery-lovescompany work related gripe sessions. Jason No. 2 works for a hostile cokehead (Colin Farrell, over the top in the sort of gross guy makeup that turned Tom Cruise bald and paunchy in Tropic Thunder). Day plays a dental assistant who is devoted to his fiancee and sexually harassed nonstop by his vampish employer (Jennifer Aniston, who gasp says naughty words). With Bateman underplaying to the verge of invisibility, Sudeikis doing a one-note turn as an overage frat boy and the excitable Day piping his

lines like a tea kettle, our heroes are every bit as hard to like as their workplace superiors. When one suggests that a few assassinations would improve workplace morale, the boys head to a ghetto bar in search of a killer for hire. Jamie Foxx steps up as a tattooed tough guy who charges them a fortune in exchange for homicide advice any casual viewer of Law & Order could provide. Thus illequipped, the saps set off on a lighthearted killing spree. Naturally, fate thwarts their plans. Horrible Bosses is too timid to lead anywhere truly dark and disquieting. Veering into troubling territory would imply a respect for the audiences intelligence that this film entirely lacks. With their bosses dead or defeated, the boys end up with their happily ever after (more or less) and clean hands. Final score: Murder One, Audience Zero.

If we instill a love for science in young children, it will give them a great attitude for it as they get into it in the middle school years when it gets really challenging. It gives them that basis and foundation of content theyll use in the future. The program will benefit future students as much as it will future teachers. Depending on the size of classes, Fryer, and program educator Francine Kevra may involve some Marywood students who are in the education program at the college. Fryer believes the week-long program would be a good learning experience for them, as well. Fryer aims to pique curiosity in the small scientists and arm them with knowledge on how to conduct research so they can continue learning well after the program is complete.

Continued from page 22

new readers who were either confused by the decades of old stories or simply too lazy to catch up on them all. Either way, that plan fell through after the writing, and therefore, sales declined. The only smart thing Marvel did through this whole mess was to keep its original comics going. Other than what Ive been told here or there, Ive been able to virtually ignore the Ultimate comics and just focus on continuing the stories I grew up with. The Captain America I was about reading 20 years ago is the same guy still kicking Nazi butt now. With DCs plan, its like those stories never even happened. While technically nothing in fiction really happens, it hap-

pened in the minds of fans. If its one thing audiences have learned from Hollywood, its that remakes are almost always terrible, and the reason theyre so awful is because the studios often forget what made the originals so great in the first place. In the same vein, Marvel recruited some of the best creators in the business to re-imagine their biggest characters, but once that initial launch was over, they quickly lost sight of what made their original creations so lovable and enduring. No matter how great these launch titles are, Im afraid that DC might make the same fatal mistake, and the sad thing is they wont have their original comics to fall back on like Marvel did. Maybe comic geeks have been spoiled all this time. If you read a book series, the tale eventually ends. If you watch a TV show, it ultimately gets cancelled, even if its Law & Order. If you enjoy a movie, you may

only get a few sequels before the story is over. In comics, weve been allowed to follow the same characters through their whole lives, sometimes through our entire lives. Its a form of entertainment thats as unique as its fan base, but maybe the honeymoon is finally over as our little cult hobby becomes more and more mainstream. It could be selfish for me to say, but I honestly dont care if my Superman isnt good enough for some snot-nosed brat who doesnt feel like reading his back story. Making Clark younger or updating his costume isnt going to make someone who never cared about superhero comics suddenly care about them. The big blockbuster movie adaptations have done enough to pander to these transient crowds. Now its time that The Big Two appreciate the fans theyve already got.

methods for promoting and helping Marleys Mission are currently being planned. July 6 marked the first anniversary of the organization, and Loposky said the experience and rapid growth has been like a roller coaster ride. She said she dreams that the mission that was formed after her family faced a personal tragedy in 2009 will ascend to a national level. Id love to see equine assisted therapy all over the U.S., she said. Anywhere theres a childrens center, they pretty much need it. The mission has helped around 70 children from six different counties to recover from neglect, abuse, loss of a loved one and many types of trauma since its inception. People from the ages of four to 22 have sought and received help through the unique form of therapy, including the animals themselves. The person and the horse need the connection, said Loposky. Instead of sitting on a couch talking about it, that person is moving, trying to figure it out their problems with a 1,500-pound animal. We focus on body awareness, post-traumatic stress, flashbacks, how your body relates and how the horses relates to the damage youre in. If you can conquer that, then youve got it. Loposky predicts more positive things for the children and families that Marleys Mission has helped. Along with individual cases, the group has effectively raised awareness for child abuse and related tragedies. To help continue the progress, Marleys Mission are currently in the running for a Pepsi Refresh Everything grant that will offset staff payroll, building maintenance and care for the horses. Votes are being accepted online at http://pep.si/mQI2KK. Im so thankful for the community because without it, I wouldnt be able to recover, Loposky said. And because of the community, 70plus families are starting the healing process.

very musician has their first memory of why they decided to play music. Sometimes it comes from a parent playing a Beatles album or from their first concert, but for Matt Balas of Red Red Indicator, it was when he was 11 years old and his cousin copied him a Rancid cassette tape. Balas then saved up money from his paper route to buy his first electric guitar and amplifier, and has been playing music ever since. He has been in seven bands, toured all the U.S. and

most of the U.K., and can play just about every traditional instrument. On July 15, Balas will showcase his talents when he performs at the Vintage Theater with No Service Project and Mad Conductor. This show is more than a typical concert for Balas though, originally from Freeland. Its more of a reunion show with a group of friends, he said. I played drums with Mad Conductor a few years ago, said Balas. I actually toured in both the U.S. and U.K. with them. Then I played guitar in No Service Project, played drums on an album, and toured with them as well. Balas, the current singer and guitar

player in his project Red Red Indicator - which also includes guitarist Kevin McHugh, bassist Marc Balas, and drummer Ryan Malloy began their new effort about a year ago. They have a four-song EP available at redredindicator.bandcamp.com titled Im Not Product, which was recorded solely by Balas before the band was formed, and theyre currently working towards their debut full length album. The progressive punk act, as described by Balas, includes bits and pieces of Rancid, Joe Strummer, Rush and some Foo Fighters and Green Day.

The bands hustle since their start has allowed them to share the stage with Celtic punk-rock band Flatfoot 56 a few months ago. They often accept whatever opportunities to play that they can get. Its hard to find shows these days, Balas explained. The independent music scene is, I dont want to say it, but kind of (expletive). Its honestly hard to find shows. Ive had more luck booking tours around the country then shows in this area. I just have to remember I love playing music and thats what we all want to do.

Brawlers take skills to arena


crantons Dave Morgan and Clarks Summits James Cianci will try to add to their unbeaten records Saturday when Mixed Martial Arts makes its debut at the Mohegan Sun Arena in WilkesBarre Saturday night. Mixed Martial Arts Super Sports (MASS) Productions presents Inauguration, the new organizations first card. Main event fighter Jim Hettes, Morgan and Cianci are among those who built much of their early careers around Northeast MMAs Cage Fights 1 through 8. They will try to continue moving up through the ranks while the sport itself also tries to succeed on a higher level with a move to a significantly larger venue.

We took some of the best local talent and matched it up with some of the best fighters from other areas, said Jonathan Kernis, who along with Mike Malast, owns MMAmelee.com and started MASS Productions. Kernis said he believes that Malast, 27, is the youngest licensed MMA promoter in the country. Hettes, from Swoyersville, is 7-0 as a pro. Including his amateur bouts, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu specialist is 11-0 with 10 firstround submissions. Jacob Kirwan, from Maryland, will oppose Hettes. Kirwan is 8-2 as a pro after winning a Ring of Combat featherweight title in February in Atlantic City.

to their players. That absurd scenario is exactly what Scranton native Mike Munchak faces as the new head coach of the Tennessee Titans. Of course Munchak will have the chance to get together with his team before he ever takes the Titans on the field. He is, however, missing valuable off-season time, particularly as a new coach. All 32 coaches in the National Football League are currently separated from their players by the lockout. Many coaches are simply carrying over most of their system from a year ago, so their teams may appreciate the breather as much as they miss the refresher course or the time to get acquainted with new additions. Munchak is one of six head coaches who are new on the job since the end of the 2010 season. He is one of five among that group who is preparing to be an NFL head coach for the first time. He was the last of the new coaches named, giving him the least time to prepare. By mid-May even one of Munchaks players was wondering aloud what impact the lockout would have on his new coachs first season.

KEEPING SCORE
TOM ROBINSON
I think the Tennessee Titans right now may be in the worst situation of all teams, Titans safety Michael Griffin told 104.9, The Horn in Austin, Texas. Munchak has had enough tasks to take care of, even within communicating with his players. He has done what he can with those tasks, like going through his first NFL Draft as head coach, designing offensive and defensive playbooks, planning preseason practices and looking at old film of early-season opponents. An NFL Hall of Fame guard and long-time offensive line coach told reporters he has watched more game film of the Titans defense than ever before. He also said that spending his entire career in the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans organization has reduced the time he would have had to spend learning personnel if he had become a head coach elsewhere. During the press conference to discuss the teams selections in the NFL Draft, Munchak revealed some of the changes the Titans have planned. Its still a 4-3 front, Munchak said of the defense, according to a transcript of the press conference posted on titansonline.com. Its not Munchak

a different look. Youre asking the SAM (strong-side) linebacker to set the edge more and have the defensive end in tighter, be a more physical player for us rather than having the defensive end wider in that position. That just changes things. It changes ... how an offense attacks that front, especially in the run game. (That) is what were trying to do, especially with the front, having bigger guys inside rather than pass-rush guys inside. While he waits for his shot at the situations that go with being a new head coach, Munchak has already enjoyed the experience of his first draft as a head coach. For me, it was an awesome experience that went about as well as it probably could, he said. I have nothing else to compare it to. This was my first shot at it. Munchak will eventually get his chance to mold the Titans offense and defense to the plans of attack settled on by his staff. The first shot at leading his players through meetings, practices and onto the field for games will have to wait for now.

Whelan out, Montero doubtful for all-stars


By TOM ROBINSON For Go Lackawanna

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees season full of transactions continued with a large batch on Wednesday. A total of seven players were involved in transactions that day before the Yankees went out and slipped behind the Pawtucket Red Sox and into third place in the International League North Division. The team made 17 moves in the first six days of July, bringing its season total to 110 transactions. The biggest move involved catcher Jesus Montero going on the disabled list with stiffness in his back. The move jeopardizes Monteros chances of appearing in the Triple-A All-Star Game Wednesday. A day earlier, the International League had announced that Yankees pitcher Kevin Whelan, Columbus infielder Luis Valbuena and Gwinnett pitcher Julio Teheran would not play for its team in the all-star game. Whelan, the league leader in saves, is also on the disabled list. Montero is hitting .289 with seven home runs and 33 RBI in 70 games. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got outfielder Chris Dickerson and pitcher Buddy Carlyle back after they were optioned from the parent New York Yankees. Dickerson hit .300, going 6for-20 and scoring five runs, while making 30 appearances in New York. He is second on Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with eight stolen bases while batting .246 in 31 games. Carlyle was 0-1 with a 4.70 earned run average in eight relief appearances in New York where he struck out nine and gave up just five hits but was hurt by seven walks in 7 2/3 innings. With Scranton/WilkesBarre, he is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 14 games, including two starts, but has shown much better control with 25 strikeouts and just eight walks in 28 innings. Infielder Mike Lamb joined Montero by shifting to the DL. Lamb hit .255 in 11 games. Catcher P.J. Pilittere was acti-

vated from the disabled list, lefthanded starting pitcher Shaeffer Hall was sent to Class AA Trenton and pitcher Kanekoa Texeira was released. Pilittere is hitting .220 with three homers and 10 RBI in 13 games. Hall made his only appearance for the team Monday when he started against the first-place Lehigh Valley IronPigs and got the win by allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings. Texeira, who had been on the disabled list since June 8, allowed 16 hits in 4 1/3 innings and had a 22.85 earned run average in five appearances. RECORD-SETTING STREAK The Eugene Emeralds, own-

ers of the best record in minor league baseball, set a Northwest League record with their 14th straight win Tuesday night before having their streak ended Wednesday. Eugene, with Abington Heights graduate Cory Spangenberg leading the way, broke the record of 13 straight wins that was set by Rogue Valley in 1969 and matched by Walla Walla in 1973. The Emeralds fell, 11-1, to the Vancouver Canadians Wednesday to drop to 17-3. Spangenberg continued his streak of reaching base at least two times in the first 20 games of his professional career when he went 1-for-2 with two walks in the loss.

SPORTS

The 10th overall pick by the San Diego Padres in this years Major League Baseball Draft, Spangenberg is hitting a leagueleading .391. Spangenberg received his second straight Northwest League Player of the Week award. He was selected after going 11for-27 (.407) in the week ending July 3 with nine runs, six RBI, three doubles and nine walks in the seven games. AHL CHANGES The American Hockey League Board of Governors announced realignment Tuesday during its Annual Meeting in Hilton Head, S.C. The AHL will switch from a four-division format to a six-di-

vision format and will determine its playoff participants by conference rather than division. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will remain in the East Division and have the Binghamton Senators, Hershey Bears, Norfolk Admirals and Syracuse Crunch as division rivals. Albany and Adirondack will be part of the Northeast Division while the Charlotte Checkers, who had been another division opponent, will move to the Midwest Division. There are three teams in each conference. The three division champions and the next five teams, according to record, will make the playoffs in each conference.
