Theres three things, Steve
began as we waited for our
dinner at Stephanis Oak Street
Grill in Colville, Washington,
but as he finished the sentence
with you need to know, his
buddy Jim joined in and said
the words right along with him.
For a second I wondered if they
had rehearsed this routine just
for me.
The three things, which they
also recited in unison, and I
will probably never forget, are:
You run from a moose.
You play dead in front of a
grizzly.
You fight a black bear.
An explanation was needed
and they were happy to oblige.
A moose, they said, will only
come after you if its protecting
its young. Run away and the
moose will be satisfied.
You cant outrun or outfight a
grizzly, they went on, but hes
likely to leave you alone if you
play dead, so you might as well
give it a shot.
They seemed to be waiting
for me to inquire about the
black bear before they volun-
teered any more info, so I did.
And the black bear? I
asked.
Well, they said, hes out to eat
you. Thats all he wants to do.
If you play dead, hes gonna eat
you. If you try to run, hes gon-
na catch you and eat you. Your
only hope is to fight him.
I sat there wondering if I
could actually do that and con-
cluded Id have no choice. But
would I survive? Well, that was
another matter.
I had a feeling these guys
would, though, a tussle with a
bear and most anything else. It
was the same feeling I always
had about my dad, and these
two reminded me of him a
lot, especially Jim. Shaking
hands with him was like shak-
ing hands with a cantaloupe.
These two men, however,
were not of my dads gener-
ation, but of mine. He grew up
in the 30s; they, like me, in the
50s. But what clearly connect-
ed them to him had nothing to
do with when they lived but
where they lived and, more
significantly, how they lived.
Where we met them has a lot
to do with that.
For the record, Colville, the
county seat of Stevens County
in northeastern Washington,
about 40 miles south of Canada
and almost the same distance
west of Idaho, was not the des-
tination of our recent vacation.
Our destination was Kettle
Falls, just up the road from
Colville. Colville is Kettle
Falls big city neighbor. It has a
population of about 4600. The
population of Kettle Falls is,
according to the hand-painted
sign on the edge of town, 1640
friendly people, and one
grouch.
The grouch, we found out, is
someone who wins the honor
by collecting votes for a quarter
apiece. The money goes to
charity and the title, which you
hold for a year, is considered an
honor. For a week I kept think-
ing they could tack onto that
sign and two delighted vis-
itors which Mary Kay and I
surely were from August 14
through 20.
Kettle Falls is where Mary
Kays first cousin Patricia (Patti
to us) Hrab lives in a log home
on 39 acres which she shares
with a handful of cattle, a bull,
three new calves, two horses,
two cats, three dogs and enough
chickens to provide fresh eggs
every morning. Patti, who was
born in Germany where she
lived until about 14 years ago,
is a real estate agent there
when shes not cutting and
baling 20 acres of hay to feed
the animals for the winter. We
helped with that and I have the
blisters to prove it.
When we decided this was
the summer we should go to
Kettle Falls so I could finally
meet Patti I knew wed be trav-
eling into the back woods of
America, so to speak. But I
didnt realize wed also be trav-
eling back in time, and that
made all the difference.
Patti has no family where she
lives so introducing us to her
friends Steve and Jim and their
wives was important to her. She
had no idea how significant it
would be for me.
Like Steve and Jim, my dad
was a country boy. He was
never more comfortable than
when in the woods. And, like
these fellas, he was a story
teller. In their company, as in
his, I did a lot more listening
than talking.
The aforementioned rules
they told me about did not
include coyotes or cougars
which are prevalent in those
parts. They are best handled
with a bullet, I learned, and
everyone at the table not
Mary Kay and I, of course, but
the gals included were in the
habit of carrying handguns just
in case.
Steve and Jim talked about
how they always took a gun to
school back in the day and kept
it in their lockers so they could
do a little hunting at lunchtime.
That made schools a whole lot
safer back then, they said with
a wink, and I knew exactly
what they meant.

n Friday morning, six
hours after her legend-
ary Exeter restaurant
was ravaged by fire, Gricos
owner and Chef Pat Greenfield
paced in the parking lot of the
century-old building with one
hand on her head and the other
holding a cell phone to her ear.
At that point she wasnt sure
what she would do about the
business. Imworried about my
employees, she said between
calls. Im waiting to talk to my
insurance.
Greenfield employed 12 to 15
workers.
Greenfield was at home in the
apartment over the restaurant
when she was awakened by
smoke between 2:15 and 2:30
Friday morning. Thinking an ov-
en may have been left on she ran
downstairs but saw only smoke.
She went back upstairs for her
cell phone and called 911.
By then smoke was too heavy
for her toget backdownthe stair-
way so she ran out to her second-
floor porch which overlooks
Wyoming Avenue, from where
she was rescued by firefighters.
Down a ladder, backwards,
she said. That was the scariest
part because Im afraid of
heights.
The fire started in the base-
ment. The state police fire mar-
shal ruled it accidental caused by
an electrical malfunction.
Greenfield said the response
was great. There were guys run-
ning over before the trucks got
here, she said. The Red Cross
was great. Everybody was
great.
Exeter Fire Chief RichMcNeil
said though the first trucks were
there quickly the fire had already
spread to upper floors.
Greenfield said most of the in-
terior was destroyed, though the
bar survived. The kitchens are
gone, she said. The pressed tin
ceilinginthe bar area looks okay.
The back bar which is original to
the building in 1935 is intact.
McNeil said the brick building
withstood the fire. Structurally,
it looks fine, he said.
Max Marcus, of the Exeter
Historical Society, said the
buildingwas built between1895-
1905 by Major Kaufman as a dry
goods store in what was then the
Jewish section of Exeter. Kauf-
man spoke and wrote Yiddish,
Polish and Slavic and immi-
grants came to himfor help with
paperwork and to arrange send-
ing money back to the old coun-
try.
Kaufman sold the building to
the Stanley Grico in the 1930s
and he turned it into a bar and
restaurant which quickly earned
a reputation for high quality. The
restaurant went through one oth-
er owner before Greenfield
bought it 25 years ago.
Greenfield kept up, and even
enhanced, the restaurants ster-
ling reputation. She was voted
Best Chef by an area publica-
tion in 2008.

The Tomato Festivals Sauce Wars where festival-goers
blind-tasted tomato sauces from five local restaurants and picked
a favorite had its best year ever. Over 1100 people tasted and
voted, a record number according to Michelle Cassetori chair of
the wars and a YMCABoard member. Sauce Wars benefits the Y.
Tasters paid $1 each.
Cassetori said while the wars drew a record high number of
votes, she would like to see a lot more. We had about 1100 voters
this year, the most weve had so far. It seems to be catching on a
little more each year, but we havent even scratched the surface of
the potential voters. If we couldonlyget themtostopandvote first
before they fill up on all their favorite foods, we could bring in
more funds for the Y.
The sauces were identified only by a number. The winner was
sauce no. 1 which was from Juniors Pasta House, a restaurant on
Broad Street, formerly Caf Olivia, owned by Rob Musto.
The other local restaurants entered were Napolis Pizza, labeled
no. 2; Pallazzo 53, no. 3; Parentes Pizza, no. 4, and Riverstreet
Ale House was labeled no 5.
Cassetori said some voters wanted to take sauce home. This
year we had numerous requests for to-go containers we couldnt
accommodate them, but that goes to showyou howmuch the fes-
tival-goers liked the sauces.
Last years winner was Barb Sherinsky for the Moose Lodge.
Gricos won in 2009

Sapphire Salon, on South
Main St., Pittston, will be pro-
ducing a music video featuring
beauty and fashion trends creat-
ed by the makeup teams from
both salon locations and anyone
who wants to get involved is wel-
come.
According to Angie Morgan
salon owner, this event will fea-
ture top of the line hair designs,
makeup and accessories from
The Sapphire Boutique.
Producer Becky Sinke will
feature each aspect in the music
dance setting at the salon in Pitt-
ston with a choreographed pro-
duction. But why does a salon
need a music video?
To showcase who we are and
what we are, explained Morgan.
The shoot was originally
scheduled for today, but the
threat of heavy rain from Hurri-
cane Irene forced a postpone-
ment. A new date has not been
set but will be announced in next
sundays Dispatch and on the
sapphire website at www.thesap-
phiresalon.com.
The opening scene to the vid-
eo will be filmed both inside and
out, starting ironically with a
rainy London scene then trans-
ferring to the inside DJ club set.
To prepare for this event not
only does everything have to be
moved but even some painting
will be involved to make the sa-
lon look like a legitimate night-
club. The most important aspect
though is having people in the
club. Yes, they will have dancers
and models but what they really
need are local extras to help fill
up the background scene.
We need them here for sup-
port, expressed Morgan.
Extras can be anyone young or
old, men or women, clients or
non clients as long as they are
over 21. All extras will get a gift
certificate for the salon and be
entered in a contest where two
winners will receive a headtotoe
makeover. Its a token of our ap-
preciation, said Morgan.
The video will be for national
press and a marketing video for
the salon.
To participate as an extra,
dress nicely and watch the Dis-
patch and the web for the new
date and time. Any questions
contact Angie Morgan at 570-
602-7700 or check out their
Facebook page for more infor-
mation.

Standing on a shredding ma-
chine at Nationwide Tire Recyc-
ing in Duryea on Friday after-
noon, State Representative Mike
Carroll ceremonially tossed a
tire onto the machines conveyor.
It was the last of the 650,000
used automobile tires from an
20-foot high, eight-acre tire
swamp which had scarred the
land off Clark Road for a decade
and Carroll was relieved to see it
go. We had the fear of God over
this place. A fire here would
have been devastating, Carroll
said.
Tire swamp fires are noto-
riously difficult to extinguish
and can cause massive pollution
and evacuations. And, as the
black heat-absorbent tires make
perfect breeding grounds for
mosquitoes, the swamps are
health hazards.
Before throwing the ceremo-
nial tire, Carroll, Duryea council
members and DEP representa-
tives toured the facility and talk-
ed with Nationwide representa-
tives.
All that remains of the
800,000 tires which were dis-
carded at the site when Hawk
Recycling Services owned it are
150,000 truck and heavy equip-
ment tires which are too large for
the shredding machine.
Nationwide general manager
Bud Stephenson said those tires
are going to be shipped overseas.
Now, he hopes, DEP will give
Nationwide a permit to accept
tires from outside the facility.
Stephenson said Nationwide,
which invested over $1million in
shredding equipment, needs the
permit to start making money
and to prevent the loss 10 full-
time jobs.
Duryea Borough council
chairwomen Audrey Marcinko
said she wrote a letter to DEP on
behalf of the borough urging the
agency to issue the permit.
Some people have a negative
viewof Duryea, Marcinko said.
Thats why we appreciate the
action Nationwide has taken
here. We want them to get the
permit.
Nationwide also removed 100
tons of scrap metal and four 30-
yard dumpsters of garbage from
the site.
Carroll said he will do what he
can to expedite the permit. He
said allowing Nationwide to im-
port tires will reduce wildcat,
or illegal dumping.
Chuck Rogers of DEP said the
main issue is upping the compa-
nys bonding and once that is re-
solved the permit could be is-
sued in two to three weeks.
Stephenson said that can be
done. Its a simple fix, we just
up the amount per tire.
Stephenson said there are po-
tential customers lining up will-
ing to pay Nationwide to take
and shred tires. We get calls ev-
eryday. We need that permit on
the wall. We have to get back in
business.
The swamp of tires was creat-
edbecause HawkRecyclingnev-
er lived up to the second part of
its name. Onlya small fractionof
the tires dumped there were re-
cycled.
Joe Hawk was jailed briefly
twice for contempt for refusing
to clean up the swamp. Finally he
was enjoined fromaccepting any
additional tires. But the dumping
continued, illegally.
Nationwide, a company with
roots inNewYorkandMaryland,
bought the old Hawk site and be-
gan the clean up in May 2010.
The shredded tires are sold to
Hercules Cement in Northamp-
ton County for kiln fuel.
Because there are approxi-
mately three quarts of oil in an
average discarded vehicle tire
they make an excellent fuel with
a higher BTU value than coal
and lower emissions.
Burning TDF was first ap-
proved for cement plants in the
early 1990s.

Craig Lukatch, the Greater
Pittston YMCAs new Executive
Director, actually grew up at the
Hazleton Y.
Its kind of funny how you
grow up in a community and
then your memories dont
change at that Y. What Im get-
ting at is that pool is still the
same, you step back into that
pool area after not beingthere for
awhile and you just have those
memories of jumping in learning

FACTS OF
LAW
Brought to you as a paid public service by
the Law Ofces of Dominick P. Pannunzio,
294 Main Street, Dupont, 655-5541
By
Dominick P.
Pannunzio, Esq.
Changes to the Massachusetts Homestead Act
will strengthen protection for homeowners
from creditor claims. Under the new law,
homeowners who dont have a declared
homestead on fle at the Registry of Deeds will
automatically be covered for up to $125,000.
Under the old law, homeowners could get
protection for up to $500,000 from seizure
to satisfy debts only by flling a declaration
of homestead at the Registry of Deeds. What
doesnt change under the new law is that to
receive the higher protection a declaration of
homestead must still be fled with the Registry
of Deeds. A homestead designation protects
a homeowners principal residence against
attachment, seizure, execution on judgement,
levy or forced sale for the payments of debts up
to the specifed limit.
Vermont banned televisions and computer
screens from landflls several years ago.
A new law adds other entertainment,
communications and computer-related gear
to the list: stereo equipment (including boom
boxes and CD/cassette players); telephones
(including cell phones, answering machines
and fax machines); computers and peripherals
(keyboards, modems, mice, external drives,
printers, etc.); DVDandVCRplayers; electronic
game consoles and controllers; power cords,
chargers and power converters; MP3 players
(iPods, etc.); digital converter boxes and
satellite dishes; and even electric typewriters.

While it is the case that under the new
four-year contract between the city and
the police union, police officers get three
percent annual raises and do not have to
contribute to their health care, the police
made one important concession by agree-
ing to contribute 2 percent of their annual
salaries to the police pension fund. Previ-
ously they had contributed a miniscule
one-tenth of a percent.
The cityhas three pensionplans: police,
fire and non-uniform. The fire and the
non-uniformare close tofully-funded, but
the police plan is under-funded by an
alarming 30 percent. To close that gap the
city asked the police to contribute more to
their pension plan to ease the burden on
the taxpayers who are ultimately respon-
sible for funding the plan. As things are,
.85 of a mill the citys real estate tax goes
to the police pension fund. Nobody be-
lieves that is fair or sustainable.
As a starting point in negotiations the
city asked for a 5 percent pension contri-
bution. The police negotiators said they
couldnt accept a contribution rate higher
than their annual salary increase and
eventually the sides settled on a 2 percent
contribution.
As to salary, patrolmen will get paid
$47,397 in 2012 and the 3 percent annual
raises will raise their pay to $51,792 in
2015. The pay goes up by rank to $53,729
in 2015 for detective/sergeants.
While it is understandable that some
residents in a city with a median income
of $30,000 might see police salaries of
over 50 grand as exorbitant, we believe
the city was wise to offer the 3 percent
raises andwere gladthe police accepted3
percent, because by agreeing the city
avoided binding arbitration with the FOP
(Fraternal Order of Police), which the city
almost certainly would have lost.
Consider in 2007 when the city went to
arbitration to settle their last contract and
the arbitrator found in favor of the union
forcing the city to pay 3.5 percent annual
raises through the life of the four-year
contract.
The saying is you cant fight city hall.
A better saying might be city hall cant
fight the FOP.
While we agree you cannot put a price
on safety, we believe the arbitration sys-
tem is deeply flawed.
Arbitrators routinely rule in favor of the
police unions without any regard for the
municipalities and the residents abili-
ties to pay.
What price
safety?
Hot Days
The dog days of Summer are here,
In the North Pole our eyes would tear.
Around the country all of us are sweltering,
Run indoors, turn on the fans we need sheltering.
In a few more months there will be a different talk,
Colder temps and a more brisk walk.
Its all part of a phase,
Hot, cold, rainy, icy, less sun, and more haze.
Mother nature can amaze you with all of its glory,
And sometimes become turbulent, and at times a worry.
Make the best of each day, it can be done,
Check out all the picnics, what can be more fun?

sincere thanks and gratitude to all who enrolled with Wyoming
Ambulance.
Residents who have not returned their membership card will
receive a reminder within the month asking to submit their sub-
scription.
Without the support of the residents of Wyoming the ambu-
lance cannot continue to provide services to the community be-
cause of the rising cost of vehicle maintenance, equipment re-
pairs and insurance.
The drive will conclude on September 30 and again thanks all

Ive eaten and I cant get up.
Im eating like its a paying job. Like Im preg-
nant. Like I have a tape worm. Like Imhaving my
last meal before I get the needle. LikeI think you
may get the point.
Not five minutes ago my daughter caught me
disemboweling a Carvel ice creamcake. She stood,
arms akimbo, headnoddingsadlyandlips curledin
disgust.
What? I feigned innocence. This is my sup-
per! I havent eaten in, like, an hour!
She turned on her heel and stalked off. I think it
was the fact that I dissected the whole cake through
the center, just to dig-out that patented super-dup-
er, crunchy-candy center. Nirvana on a paper plate,
with a plastic fork.
Yesterday, for dinner, I ate a hamburger, three
cobs of corn which I chiseled through like I was
winning a prize, baked beans, potato chips, pud-
ding, an ice creamsandwich and a bag of (lowfat!)
chocolate drizzled popcorn.
And, an hour later I was searching again for the
chips, because you know you cant eat just one
(pound)and they were gone!
My husband yelled from the other room: I hid
them, John Candy! We need to save some for the
kids!
I sniped: Yeah wellIm hiding your under-
pants and well see how you like that!
He shot back I dont even need to wear un-
derpantsso
Oh. Ew.
Anyway I never found those damn chips. But
thank God for PenMart. A hop, skip and carbo-
load away.
At work, I swear Ill get through my shifts with
nothing more than a handful of almonds and a
string cheese. I start at noon and by 1:00 Ive
cleaned-out a crate of almonds and an eraser that
looked like an almond. I sniff around that library
praying someone left a few jellybeans in the Non-
Fiction section.
Poor Cheryl, my co-worker. She brought in a
huge box of Good N Plenty yesterday. She said
Heres our treat for the week.
While she was shelving the new book; How to
Dress 15 Pounds Thinner, I tipped the box directly
into my open mouth. There was plenty. And they
were good.
Cheryl is too much of a lady to call me out on my
siphoning, but she did say, at about 4:00, Your
teeth are black. Almost like you ate a whole box of
Good N Plenty.
Sigh. Sorry Cheryl. Next week is Hot Tamale
week and Ill buy.
Our director, Anne, is ridiculously fit. Shes a yo-
ga instructor and a follower of some torture-cham-
ber exercise class thats apparently used to train all
kinds of armed forces operatives. So, imagine how
I feel when Imsneaking around the library clutch-
ing my mid-afternoon snack of Fiddle Faddle and
shes noshing on a celery stick dipped in hummus.
She sets a pristine example, and I set one of su-
preme schlumpness.
Shouldnt I be absorbing her positive nutrition
through osmosis?
If I thought her positive mojo could be a direct
result of some fancy-shmancy, organic fare, then
Id be main-lining prune juice like it was Yoo Hoo.
Instead, I yank the Martha Stewart magazine off
the shelf and tear-out the flourless chocolate torte
recipe, leaving behind the less-happy recipes for a
chopped salad consisting of lettuce and air and the
avocado and jelly sandwiches, as well as an article
on how to make your thighs stop chafing together
like two pieces of sandpaper.
What the hell?
I thought when youre sad, you eat and when
youre happy, you dont! Its backwards for me. I
want it to be right-side up. I want to NOT EAT
WHEN IM HAPPY!
How can I fix this before its too late and I am
back to buying pants with Velcro closures or in-
vesting in that tried-and-true infomercial jewel:
The Perfect Fit Button?! Youknowthe devise that
allows you to e-x-p-a-n-d your pants in the blink of
an eye?
Or that ingenious phenomenon: Pajama Jeans!
This is where Im heading, people!
And heres the really bizarre thingI pretend, at
night that if I brush and floss my teeth really
wellthe calories Ive consumed all day are erad-
icated! Poof! Just like that.
Also if I eat crap while out-of-town, that
doesnt count, either. If I merrily ingest two sticky
buns in State College, for example, its like eating a
red beet in West Pittston!
See how that works? Its brilliant, really.
Oh, Dr. Philwhere are you when I need you?
Lookto an outsider looking in, I appear to not
be chubby. But (hopefully) you havent seen me
naked, and I have. Everything is out of place and
onlyI knowthat the pants I just bought inJune left a
brutal indentation in the shape of a spatula on my
duo-belly, complete with a matching brush burn
and a broken zipper.
I need to start a newtrend of eating healthier. Im
genetically short and stumpy and if I dont stop this
crazy eating, Ill resemble a Swedish Meatball bal-
anced on two hot dog buns. I want to instead look
like a svelte baby dill balanced on two cocktail stir-
rers.
The time has come. Goodbye, Carvel. Youve
been a good friend and Ill miss you.
But itll be a treat to button my pants again and
become right-side up, where I belong.
However, theres still no way in hell Imeating an
avocado and jelly sandwich. Unless it has you-
know-what sprinkled throughout.
Rhymes with hood and scenty.

Have you seen my chips?
Maria Heck provides Dispatch readers with a co-
lumn to feast on every other week in this space.
Do your children eat breakfast before you send them off to school
in the morning? Studies show that children who have breakfast are
more alert, involve themselves more fully in the days tasks, make
fewer visits to the school nurse and are tardy or absent less often.
Children who consume a healthy breakfast are not as unfocused, rest-
less, short-tempered or tired as those who skip breakfast. Breakfast
alsoimproves childrens concentrationandhelps themscore better on
tests thus improving their grades. Its important for adults to take the
time to eat breakfast too!
Ahealthy breakfast can be quick and does not have to be costly. To
increase energy levels and keep your child feeling full, try to include
a balance between carbohydrates, protein and fats. Abreakfast full of
sugar will cause a quick spurt in energy followed by symptoms of
hunger nearly an hour later. Breakfast should contain at least 3 food
groups. A simple breakfast that meets these recommendations may
be a servingof whole graincereal witha glass of reducedfat milkand
a small apple.
You may be asking, What if my child doesnt wake up hungry?
Children who do not wake up hungry may be choosing too many
high-fat and high-calorie foods just before bedtime. It is best if chil-
dren dont eat snacks just before bed unless their doctor tells themto
do so.
Try mixing and matching some of these foods to create a healthy
breakfast:
Cereal with 1 percent milk or nonfat milk
Instant oatmeal or cream of wheat
Whole-wheat bread, English muffins, pita bread, or bagels
Frozen waffles, pancakes, or French toast with applesauce topping
Cornbread with applesauce
Bran Muffins
Peanut butter and banana on whole-wheat bread or crackers
Celery with peanut butter
Eggs
Egg sandwich and fruit
100% Fruit juice, limit to 6 ounces
Fresh fruit (try to use a variety of in-season fruits)
Low-fat cottage cheese
Ricotta cheese on a whole grain toasted bagel
Low-fat yogurt with added fruit or granola
Try making these breakfast bars ahead of time and use them as a
quick, on-the-go breakfast. Even though they do have marshmal-
lows, they also have peanut butter and dry milk for a protein boost
and whole grain oats. Serve with low fat milk.
Breakfast Bars
6 tbsp margarine
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup raisins
4 cups whole grain oat circles
Spray a 9" x 9" x 2" square pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a
large saucepan, melt margarine and marshmallows over low heat,

he vendors ovens, fryers
and hot tables hadnt yet
cooled last Sunday as the
28th Tomato Festival wound
down and the festival committee
was already looking toward next
year.
Sunday we talked about im-
provements for next year, said
festival co-chair Lori Nocito.
We hope to put the rides on the
level above in the area behind li-
brary. Wed also like to have a
secondary stage up there to high-
light young performers. We have
to do it right. We have to work
with the city and move forward
together.
Improving the upper level
would require electrical work
and landscaping. Using the up-
per lot for rides andgames would
make room along the main run-
way and in the lower area for
more food vendors. Nocito said
there is a waiting list for food
vendors.
As to the 2011 festival Nocito
indicated anecdotally vendors
said it was good year despite the
sewer and streetscape work. We
are overall very happy the way
things went considering obsta-
cles, she said. We thank city
for getting the lot ready for us.

Question #1
Joseph Thomas Jr.
of Avoca was in good
company. He and 6
other gentlemen,
Harry E. Caines,
Olyphant, Ronald C.
MacDonald, William
Bennie, Karl Thomas, William Schrader
of Moosic and Alfred Shafer of Oliver
Mills, were honored for their combined
service of 295 years as employees of the
Belin Works of E. I. du Pont de Ne-
mours and Company in Moosic. What
dangerous product did these gentlemen
manufacture?
1964 47 Years Ago
Phil Adonizio saved Louis DeGrose
and Joe Testa of Pittston from making a
mistake. John Musto wanted to donate
a flagpole from an old school building
his business occupied to the Pittston
Panthers Booster Club. Louis and Joe
showed up at the Wilson School and
prepared to lower the newly painted
flagpole and reinstall it at their new
field. Just as the two men were ready to
lower the pole, Adonizio showed up and
asked, What are you doing? to which
the two men said, Getting the flagpole.
Adonizio informed Louis and Joe they
had the wrong building. The building
Musto was talking about was the aban-
doned school building in Browntown.
After three years of trying to secure a
site, Ernest Nicholson, president of the
Exeter Park Playground Association,
finally received a deed for Wilson Street
land donated by George Ruckno. Mel
Hughes, Robert Davis, Edward Sa-
dowski Carol Lumley, Michael Danko,
Martha Sadowski, Ann Marie Cast-
erline and Pat Novitski planned to
move forward to develop the park,
which called for the construction of a
120 by 300 building and playground
equipment.
1974 37 Years Ago
The St Johns High School cheerlead-
ers took first place at the National
Cheerleading Clinic in Pittston. Judy
Frank took second place in individual

were Tina Blasi, Anna Rose Mulcahy,
Sharon Manganiello, Ellen Gavigan,
Cathy OMalley, Margie Gavigan,
Susan Russick, Sherry Booth, Mary
Gallagher, Renee Vennarucci, Calley
Dommermuth and Patty Smith.
In 1974, Jeff Webb General Manager
and Vice President of NCA founded the
Universal Cheerleaders Association
(UCA) to teach skills to cheerleaders
around the United States. Partner stunts
& pyramids were introduced to make
cheerleading more entertaining a new
era of cheerleading began. According to
cheerunion.org, the first sporting event
to witness the birth of cheerleading was
held in 1869 between Princeton and
Rutgers Universities.
The Greater Pittston Chamber of
Commerce set a goal of 700 for their
1974 membership drive. With all teams
reporting, new members and renewals
reached 803. High team captained by
Thomas Reilly included Bernard Borr,
Attorney Thomas Burke, Jr., Dr. Ri-
chard E. Colarusso, Floyd Evans,
Attorney Jarrett W. Jennings, Albert
B. Melone Sr., Samuel Milazzo and
Howard Renfer. Leonard Tabone and
Paul Clapps headed second place
teams.
The Greater Pittston Chamber was
incorporated in June of 1920 current
officers of the chamber included Char-
les A. Adonizio III, President; Exec-
utive Vice President, Rosemary Des-
soye; First Vice President Joseph D.
Burke, Esq; Second Vice President,
Jerry A. Champi, Third Vice President,
Patricia F. Stella; Treasurer, Mark
Nobile.
Rosalie Petonak, Carrie DeLeo,
Diane Pribula, Corinne Caparoni,
Ann Farrell, Mary Alice Saitta, Janet
Lumley, Catherine Newhart, Irene
Smith, Rose Roback, Bernice Clapps,
Carole Cameli and Marge Brozzoski
were in a league of their own. The Exe-
ter Park Volunteer Hose Company La-
dies Auxiliary Softball Team was set to
play their very first game as a team
against Bell Telephone at the Exeter
Little League stadium. If anyone re-
members if these ladies walked away
with a win on August 28 of 1974 call me

1984 27 Years Ago
A Pittston Area teacher strike was
looming as offers and counteroffers
were placed on the table just days away
from the opening of the 1984-85 school
year. Originally the board offered yearly
salary increases of $1,200, $1,300 and
$1,400 per year for the next three years,
but the union did not like the across the
board package. The board came back
with a $1,300, $1,500 and $1,600 offer.
The union retaliated with a $1,500,
$1,700, and $1,900 demand. Negotia-
tions fell apart. An agreement was met
before the scheduled first day of class.
Pittston Township resident and county
GOP Chairman Pat Solano missed the
old days when John Kehoe, publisher of
the Sunday Dispatch, held the annual
Kehoe Clambake. Attended by hun-
dreds of Greater Pittston residents, the
event hosted a Pennsylvania governor on
occasion. Pat decided to initiate an Old-
Timers Day event at his home in the
tradition of the Kehoe extravaganza.
On August 27 of 1984, President Re-
agan announced the teacher in space
project. The Dispatch Inquiring Photog-
rapher asked, Do you agree with Presi-
dent Reagans decision to send a teacher
into space?
Paul Yonki of West Pittston answered,
I say let somebody from the rank and
file be the first.
John Valenti of Duryea added, It
would be an excellent learning experi-
ence.
Mary Ann Switzer of Exeter said, I
think a teacher should go, but it has to
be woman teacher.
Ruth Oliveri of Exeter answered,
Sending a teacher is an excellent idea.
According to teachersinspace.org,
more than 11,000 teachers applied to be
the first private citizen to fly into space.
Finally, in July of 1985, NASA chose
New Hampshire teacher Christa
McAuliffe to be the first Teacher in
Space and Idaho teacher Barbara
Morgan as her backup. On January 28,
1986, a flaw in the Shuttle Challengers
solid rocket booster caused the vehicle
to break up just 73 seconds into flight.
The seven crew members, including
McAuliffe, perished. In August of 2007,
Barbara Morgan finally made it.

Tomato Festival

Dick Hughes Running

Paid for by the committee to elect Richard Hughes Judge
Jordan Tarter isnt usually
nervous on stage. But Saturday
night during the Tomato Festival
was an exception.
I was nervous, the 13-year-
old aspiring actress and singer-
songwriter said, because it was
the first time performing my
songs.
Opening for Flaxy Morgan
that night on the band shell, Jor-
dan, a Pittston Area eighth grad-
er, played guitar and sang two
original songs during her 20-
minute set.
The audience helped ease her
nervousness. I had so much
support there it was crazy, she
said. Id look to my left and see
my friends.
Her friends from school and
the KISS Theatre Co. held up
signs declaring their love and
support. Her family was there,
too. She dedicated a song to her
father whose birthday was the
previous day.
If Jordan was nervous, Alex-
andra Antonacci, who was there
shooting photographs, didnt no-
tice it. She was great, Antonac-
ci said. She was so calm on
stage. She interacted with the
crowd well. She seemed like a
pro and shes only 13.
Gene Smith, who was working
the soundboard for Rock Street
Music, was impressed. Shes
very good, she said. Shes a
young upcoming talent. If she
keeps working hard shell get
better and better. She had some
good stagemanship. She wasnt
afraid to talk to the people. Shes
got that country-pop style that
kids are into right now. Shes got
her own originals which is really
cool.
Her original songs, which she
does describe as country/pop
with a Taylor Swift vibe, were so
fresh they had been completed
only a week or so before the fes-
tival. Since then shes also wrap-
ped up a third song which she
calls Collide. Her first two
originals, which she performed
at the festival, are Like You
Used To and Good-bye.
Jordan describes her songs as
normal relationships songs,
though she admits as shes only
13 relationships arent some-
thing she knows a whole lot
about.
Jordan has been singing for as
long as she remembers. Her
mother, Tiffany, who doubles as
mom and promoter, said Jordan
first performed on stage when
she was in first grade and they
lived in Oregon. She sang a Hill-
ary Duff song at a school talent
show.
She had confidence at sev-
en, Tiffany said. I knew then
shed be perfect for the stage.
As Jordan walked off the stage
that day seven years ago in Ore-
gon, she heard her teacher say,
Shes going to go somewhere,
some day. Jordanhas beenmoti-
vated by those words ever since.
Among Jordans musical in-
fluences are Taylor Swift, Lady
Antebellum, Bruno Mars, and
Pink. She said her songs start as
ideas for lyrics and titles. She
writes them down as they come
to her and then picks up her gui-
tar to create the music. Some-
times the chords and melodies
just come to her. Other times she
said, I mess around with my
guitar and come up with some-
thing.

Exeter Park Volunteer Hose
Company and West Wyoming
Hose Company #1 held a formal
signing ceremony on Saturday,
Aug. 20, to mark officially the
merger of the two volunteer fire
companies.
Exeter Park has a proud his-
tory, and we are deeply grateful
to our friends and neighbors for
supportingus throughthe years,
said Joseph Gutowski, Exeter
Park President. The financial
reality of the past few years is
that we have been using our sav-
ings to keep pace with the day-to
day expenses of operating the
fire department. This was not a
long-term solution, and it led us
to conclude more than a year ago
that merging with another com-
pany would be our best option.
Every volunteer fire compa-
ny is faced with financial chal-
lenges and having too few
trained firefighters to meet call
volume, said Matthew Gran-
teed Sr. West Wyoming Hose
Co. #1 Fire Chief. We think
mergers are inevitable, and our
merger with Exeter Park will
dramatically increase the num-
ber of highly trained firefighters
who can respond to calls in West
Wyoming and our mutual aid
communities.
The merged companies will
operate under the charter of West
Wyoming Hose Co. #1from one
station at 926 Shoemaker Ave.,
West Wyoming. The station is
located on a state highway and is
about one mile from Exeter
Parks current building at 219
Lehigh St., Exeter.
We are a family of firefight-
ers who want to serve others,

Vice President. As we consid-

Sauce Wars at the Tomato Fes-
tival in 2009 and she operated a
popular booth there annually.
Bill and Marie Gladish of Pitt-
ston were regular patrons. Im
very upset, Marie said. We ate
there a couple times a month,
sometimes more.
Her husband Bill hopes this
isnt the end for Gricos. I hope
she rebuilds, he said. Its a
landmark.
Michael Clark a Pittston na-
tive wholives inthe D.C. area but
visits here several times a year
said hes been going to Gricos
for 50 years or more. It was a
big time class place. There we-
rent many like it. In the 1960s
you were kind of somebody if
you ate there regularly. It was a
romantic place. Everybody
loved the booths with the cur-
tains.
The restaurant was famous for
its booths for two to four people
which were draped for privacy.
Exeter Mayor Cassandra Co-
leman heard the news on early
morning TV. Its a shock. Pat is
a wonderful, wonderful person.
Whenever I went to her for any-
thing for the community like my
grandfathers softball tourna-
ment she always helped out. Gri-
cos has been a staple of Exeter
for years. I hope she can re-
build.
Firefighters from Exeter, Ger-
mania, Hughestown, Kingston,
Pittston City, Pittston Township,
Swoyersville and Wyoming re-
sponded.

how to dive, said Lukatch.
Howlittle was I? I dont even
remember. I remember going in
there and with my sister. My
mom took us there to learn how
to swim. Thats how we first got
involved, said Lukatch. His
family spent lots of time there
having birthday parties and go-
ing to lessons.
Alot of the memories were of
the sights and the sounds of be-
ing in the pool and that kind of
stuff as a little kid. There was so
much activity going on different
classes, kids jumping in and that
kind of stuff, said Lukatch.
His positive memories are
probably what led him back to
the Y as an adult, although this
wasnt his first job that has had
quite the same mission. As Di-
rector of Development for the
Wyoming Valley Childrens As-
sociation he was responsible for
marketing and fundraising for
their organization.
One of the biggest compo-
nents of an executive director or
any non profit is fundraising so
you have to know how to do that
in order to be in the community
and ask for money. Because ob-
viously we survive by dona-
tions, explained Lukatch.
He is also a self-proclaimed
gym enthusiast, who teaches
spinning and boxing classes at
the Hazleton health and wellness
center.
Since I havent officially
started yet (as the Ys new Exec-
utive Director) Ive actually been
working out here and getting a
sense of what this place is like,
said Lukatch. He has no idea if Y
members are going to be
shocked to see himswimming in
the pool or working out in the
gym often.
Im planning to do that be-
cause I believe in being accessi-
ble to the members and everyone
in the community so that if they
need something thats what Im
here for. Im here to listen to
themto talk with themto be with
them, said Lukatch.
He explained that every Y is
different, some smaller others
larger but he personally thought
the Pittston one was a nice size
for the community. Although its
a good size he still has a game
plan for some improvements in
the near future. From cosmetic
updates tothe receptiondeskand
locker rooms to the addition of
more air conditioners, Y mem-
bers have a lot to look forward to.
There are some things that we
want to improve upon and hope-
fully we will have the communi-
tys support to do that, said Lu-
katch.
The three aspects the Y staff
works on are youth develop-
ment, healthy living and social
responsibility. Its beyond being
a pool and gymnasium, more
than a community center and
pool they strengthen families
and individuals.
My goal is to make this again
the center, the beacon of this
community I mean thats what
the Y is and what it stands for. I
think it has been that here but it
can only be strengthened at this
point, we can only make it bet-
ter, said Lukatch.
The repeating message the Y
offers is they are a family, they
accept individuals, couples,
from young and old to families
of 4 or 5, everyones accepted.
I want to have that open door
policy, Lukatchsaid. I want ev-
eryone to stop by. Im welcome
to see anybody. I want the com-
munity to come up and introduce
themselves. So Im hoping that
people come by and visit us.

ered merger options, West
Wyoming made sense because
we have worked, trained and re-
sponded together for years. They
have welcomed us and given us a
way to stay together. We are now
eager to continue to serve Exeter
and other communities as West
Wyoming responds to mutual
aid requests.
West Wyoming Hose Co. #1
participates inthe West Side Mu-
tual Aid Association, which in-
clude Exeter, Wyoming and a
number of other neighboring
communities. At the discretion
of fire officials in each commu-
nity, the company responds to a
variety of emergency situations.
West Wyoming has been respon-
ding to structure fires and alarms
in Exeter since Exeter Parks en-
gine was taken out of service in
January of this year.
We take our mutual aid re-
sponsibilities very seriously and
do our best to make every call,
said Chief Granteed. We under-
standthat we needhelpfromoth-
er fire companies as well.
The company is expecting de-
livery of a new rescue/pumper
early in the fall. It is being pur-
chased through an Assistance to
Firefighters Grant Program
award from the Federal Emer-
gency Management Association
that was secured by Exeter Park.
It is also supported by combined
financial resources from both
companies.
The companys vehicles will
consist of a pumper, heavy res-
cue, rescue/pumper, brush truck
and utility truck.
By consolidating we can
eliminate older vehicles that
need costly repair, Chief Gran-
teed said. It also means that we
only need to insure and maintain
one station, concentratingour re-
sources on equipment, training
and our remaining vehicles.

mom. If mom approves Tiffany
polishes the song to a finish.
Jordan always sang. Two years
ago she started guitar. A work
friend of her mothers at Pride
Manufacturing gave her a few
lessons. From there Jordan
taught herself with internet in-
structional videos.
Jordan has acted and sang at
KISS Theatre Co. at the Wyom-
ing Valley Mall productions and
played Dorothy in New York
City in an off-Broadway version
of the Wizard of Oz.
Yesterday Jordan was in Balti-
more to audition for a TV docu-
drama call I Died about near-
death experiences. On Septem-
ber 29 she will be performing in
NYC at the Mega Musical Fes-
tival.
Tiffany said being her daugh-
ters promoter and manager is
like having two jobs. Tiffany and
Jordans father Danny both work
for Pride Manufacturing, having
been transferred by Pride from
Oregon to Pittston four years
ago.
Tiffany said its an advantage
for Jordans aspirations to live
here because she is close major
cities, especially New York
where there are more audition
opportunities.
Jordan said shes happy for the
opportunities. Imwilling to do
whatever it takes to get to my
dream. Acting and singing are
the main things and whatever
comes my way I will take.

and sopresatta sandwiches and
stuffed rigatoni were among the
favorites. It was awesome, she
said. We were rockin and rol-
lin. One of the best weve ever
had. We had our regular loyal
customers, but other people let
us know they werent local. I
dont know if it was because we
were in Parade Magazine, or
what, but we met people from
Pittsburgh, New Mexico, Rhode
Island. One couple said they
were traveling around going to
festivals.
Though he didnt work the St.
Johns Lodge Masons booth last
year, this years chair Leo Bond-
urich said the lodge sold at least
as much Blue Ribbon ice cream
this year as it did in 2010. Going
by the notes from last year we
met our quota, he said. Con-
sidering the economy, Id say the
outcome was good. The mint
chocolate chip ice cream went
really quick.

Ron Casper of Two Gentle-
mens catering had high praise
for the organizers. The commit-
tee does an excellent job. They
are real professionals, he said.
As to his own booth, where
cheesesteaks and bruschetta
were among the offerings, he
said it met expectations. We
were on target.
The weather helped, but a
weather report did not. After a
shower just before the opening
on Thursday, it did not rain at all
during festival hours. But Gary
Wargo, co-owner of Tonys Piz-
zeria, said Sundays weather re-
port for rain may have cut down
the crowd a little. We were off
just a hair fromlast year, he said,
but we were happy.

After going winless in 2010,
there is a new excitement sur-
rounding the Pittston Area foot-
ball team, and it all stems from
the positive aura projecting from
the attitude and style of new
head coach Mike Barrett.
Barrett has started from
scratch with the Patriots, teach-
ing the basics of fundamental
football which he and his staff
have stressed since taking over
in January.
With that senior leadership
and the offensive line that we
have coming back, were taking a
fundamental approach to it and
we want to be able to run the
football, Barrett said. We are
going to try and keep it as basic
as possible and with the guys we
have coming back and our de-
cent size up front, we should be
able to move the ball up front.
The decent size up front Bar-
rett speaks of is made up of se-
niors John Ameen, Joey Stoss,
Dave Dragon, and Josh Blaker.
The quartet of returning linemen
average 60, 250 and will give
the Patriots a formidable front
on both side of the ball. Ameen
is the biggest of the group stand-
ing 63 and while be listed at 300
pounds
That group will be blocking
for this years starting quarter-
back, senior Anthony Schwab.
Barrett plans on sticking with
Schwab rather than taking the
two-quarterback route the Patri-
ots have used the past few years.
Although the former Valley
View and Mid Valley assistant
was excited about the progress
of freshman Kyle Gattuso who
will serve as Schwabs backup.
They did that last year, Bar-
rett said of a two-quarterback
system. Its been my experi-
ence, when I played we had two
quarterbacks and I just dont
think you can develop any conti-
nuity or consistency there. Were
going to be a one-quarterback
team, although we may throw a
wrinkle in here or there.
(Gattuso) has really been
outstanding in the off-season.
He has surprised me. He has
been very, very mature for a
ninth grader.
The Patriots will feature a
mixture of different players in
the backfield with senior Evan

Returning for PIttston Area in 2011 are Tyler Roman, Evan Hahn, Anthony Schwab, and Brian Delaney. The quartet, along with a number of linemen, will help the Patriots

Matt Flynn and Deedra Por-
firio ran to easy victories in
the Pittston Tomato Festival
5K Run last Saturday.
Both winners former Pitt-
ston Area High School run-
ners - trailed early in the race,
but took charge shortly after
the first mile.
Flynn, 25, of Media, broke
the tape in 16 minutes and 18
seconds. Shavertowns Sean
Robbins, 41, who recently
won the Wilkes-Barre Triath-
lon, finished second, 44 sec-
onds behind Flynn.
It went pretty well, said
Flynn. I trailed over the first
mile. Then at the one-mile
marker, I felt good. So I de-
cided to go for it. I took off
and built a pretty good lead.
Once I put some distance be-
tween myself and the rest of
the field, I settled into a nice
pace to the finish.
Porfirio won the female di-
vision of the 5K with a 10th-
place finish overall in 19:27.
The 34-year-old from West
Pittston outran second-place
finisher, Catherine Lombar-
do, 16, of Pittston, by 28 sec-
onds.
There were a bunch of run-
ners ahead of me early in the
race, said Porfirio. I passed
them. And at one-mile, I was
in front. But I knew someone
was right behind me. I just
kept up my pace for a while.
But I wasnt able to settle into
a comfortable pace. And with
(Lombardo) right behind me,
I had to keep pushing. I wasnt
sure what kind of lead I had
after that, so I just kept push-
ing.
Lombardo, who will be a ju-
nior this fall at Pittston Area
where she runs track and cross
country, said that Porfirio ac-
tually pulled ahead of her
quite substantially somewhere
between miles one and two.
Porfirio has been suffering
from an ankle injury. But you
wouldnt know it by her per-

Wyoming Area head football
coach Randy Spencer is both ex-
cited, and anxious to take the
field on Friday nights this fall.
We have a lot of guys coming
back. Its not like they havent
been on the field, Spencer said.
They just have been in roles and
nowthose roles are going to have
to expand and they have to be-
come more intricate and full-
time players.
The Warriors return an abun-
dance of players on both sides of
the ball, including superstar
Nick OBrien. Spencer plans to
focus his offense around the 59,
150-pound junior. Last year he
had great success in the back-
field, rushing for 1,018 yards and
17 touchdowns.
However, this year you will
have to look a little harder if you
want to find him when the War-
riors huddle breaks. OBrien is
also a threat to catch the ball,
hauling in 10 passes for 125
yards and two touchdowns as a
sophomore, and throwing the
rock as well as he completed
three passes for 54 yards and a
score.
That versatility will allow
Spencer to use OBrien at var-
ying positions on the offensive
side of the ball.
Whether its wildcat or at
quarterback, OBrien is some-
body you will find in the slot, in
the backfield, under center and
in the shotgun, Spencer said of
his featured player. The ques-
tion will be like, Where is Wal-
do? Youre going to have to find
him.
The Warriors do return more
than just OBrien. They return
many players on both sides of the
ball. However, they did lose
some key players.
Spencer expects to explore his
options at the quarterback posi-
tion this fall. The Warriors lost
last years starting quarterback
Chris Murphy. However, this
year Spencer will look towards
OBrien and junior Jordan Zez-
za. Both are expected to see
some time under center.
We have a young guy coming
up in Jordan Zezza who we think
is goingtobe prettygood, Spen-
cer said. We have a lot of flex-
ibility to be able to do what we
want and move the ball around.
In addition to OBrien, Matt
Kintz returns for his fourth and
final year in the Warriors back-
field along with Corey Popov-
ich. There will also be a mixture
of Ahmad Bouie, Zack LaNun-
ziata, Justin Langdon and Cody
Schmitz in the backfield at times
as well. Kintz and Popovich
combined to rush for just under
450 yards and three scores.
As for receivers, Spencer
plans to use some of the same
guys from the backfield.
On the outside the Warriors
will use senior Joe Adonizio at
receiver and fill in the gaps with
LaNunziata, Schmitz, Langdon
and Bouie. They will do their
best to replace Kody Nowicki,
Eric Eramo and Larry Popovich.
All three graduated following
their 200-yard plus seasons last
fall.
Offensively we need to come
off the ball with heavy hands and
move people off the football,
Spencer said. We just have to
focus on execution. We need to
stay away from things that get in
the way.
The Warriors bring back half
of their defense fromlast season.
Nick Bartoli, Carl Zielinski and
Joe Erzar are returningonthe de-
fensive line and Matt Kintz and
Popovich return as linebackers.
EJ Driving Hawk, Trent Grove,
Bobby Burton and Jake Smith
will all see time at defensive end
for Wyoming Area.
Kintz was the third leading
tackler last season as a junior
with 59 stops. OBrien added 52
tackles, and Bartoli added 35.
The secondarywill feature La-
Nunziata, Schmitz, and Adoni-
zio - all should see time at the
corners and safety positions.
We are going to be able to run
well, especially defensively,
Spencer said. We arent excep-

Four years ago Old Forge Head Foot-
ball Coach Mike Schuback penciled in
three sophomore offensive linemen on a
team that featured skill players that were
about to come into their own. That team
went on to win seven games and make
the District 2 playoffs.
This year, Schuback will do the same.
Only this time he expects the Blue Dev-
ils to be even better.
I made this statement before doubles,
and I am going to stand with it. If we do
not make the district championship
game, its going to be disappointing,
said Schuback who enters his 10th sea-
son at the helm of his Alma Mater. We
are at make or break right now. With the
skill kids we have and the three-year se-
niors we have around (we are at that
point). Even though they werent big
names for the past two years, we feel we
know each other well enough, and know
the other teams well enough, that we
should be successful.
The skill players Schuback refers to
are running backs Lou Febbo and Brian
Bubba Tomasetti, wide receivers Dave
Argust and Michael Vieira, and quarter-
back Colin Carey.
Febbo rushed for 899 yards and nine
touchdowns as a junior while playing in
an offense that put up 1,240 yards and 16
touchdowns in the air. Tomasetti added
209 yards on just 25 carries while
punching it in twice as a sophomore.
Argust, a senior, caught 20 balls for
almost 200 yards and one touchdown
last season, and Vieira, a junior, chipped
in with five catches for almost 100 yards
but was also the top return man for Old
Forge with 15 kickoff returns for 208
yards.
Carey will be the X-factor for the Blue
Devils.
After taking few reps under center in
passing situations last season, the fleet-
footed 63 senior did run for 224 yards
on just 27 carries while scoring three
touchdowns out of the Old Forge spread-
set.
We arent going to be a straight I-
(formation) team all of the time, said
Schuback. Carey does such a great job
spreading the field and making it work
to our advantage with the skill kids we
have. I think its going to dictate how
many kids teams are going to be able to
put in the box, and that is going to make
it easier on the kids up front than in the
past.
The players up front for Old Forge will
include three sophomores in a rotation
of six players as the season begins for

The opportunity was there for
Old Forges J Argonish and Corey
Palma to give away three points,
and most likely the match against
arch-rival Riverside on Wednes-
day morning at Pine Hill Country
Club in Taylor.
But instead, the senior duo
drilled putts on both the eighth
and ninth holes to solidify indi-
vidual victories and a better-ball
point, to give the Blue Devils a
gut-wrenching, 6-3, win over the
Vikings.
Playing separately, both golfers
led by two holes early in their re-
spective matches. But Nico Mun-
ley evened things up against Pal-
ma heading to the Par 5, 470-yard
No. 8, and Argonish clung to a 1-
up advantage against Cole Sur-
ridge as both teed off on the same
hole.
Palma scrambled for a par on
the eighth, leavingnodoubt onhis
par putt with Munley already in
with a par to keep the match even
headed to the final hole. The
three-year starter then launched
his drive on the Par 4, 315-yard
No. 9 less than 20 yards from the
green before chipping within 15
feet of the cup. Munleys drive
was less than 40 yards from the
green, but the sophomore chipped
short of the green before reaching
on his third shot.
But Palma drained his birdie
putt before Munley parred the
hole to take one point in his indi-
vidual match, and one point for
better-ball of partners between
himself and partner Jordan Ohler
and Riversides Munley and Carl
Pugliese. Pugliese beat Ohler, 3
and 2, to keep the Vikings within
2-1 after the first group of play.
The first group had already fin-
ished when Argonish and playing
partner Ian Nemetz had reached
the eighth green with Riversides
Cole Surridge and Jaron Vishnes-
ky. Argonish steadily made the
exact putt Palma did on No. 8 a
pin-high, eight footer to halve
the hole with Surridge and remain
1-up heading to No. 9. Nemetz
meanwhile lagged a 20-footer
fromabove the hole to within two
feet tofinishwitha bogeytohalve
the hole with Vishnesky and keep
the better-ball match even. Ne-
metz went to the ninth tee 1-down
to Vishnesky.
Both Argonish and Surridge
struggledoff the tee andwiththeir
secondandthirdshots onthe final
hole. But after a solid chip and
one putt, Surridge was in with a
double bogey while Argonish
faced a eight-foot downward putt
from behind the hole to tie the
Vikings No. 3 golfer. Argonish
solidly struck the ball which hit
the back of the cup, bounced up,
landed on the back of the lip and
fell in for the individual win and a
3-1 Old Forge lead.
Nemetz couldnt get past Vish-
nesky on the final hole, but his10-
footer for bogey halved the better-
ball matchandgave the Blue Dev-
ils a half-point and a 3.5-2.5 lead
with the final group teeing off at
No. 9.
The win by Argonish clinched
the victory for Old Forge (1-0-1)
because the final group of Adam
Barsigian and AJ Cantarella had
already clinched1.5 points before
heading to the ninth tee.
Barsigian split his individual
match with Mike King, and Can-
tarella, a freshman, beat Adam
Leasure, 2-up, for his first career
win. Barsigian and Cantarella al-
so one the better-ball match, 1-up.
OF 4.5, Scranton 4.5
Corey Palma and Jordan Ohler
swept three points in the first
group but it wasnt enough for
Old Forge to come away with a
win as the Blue Devils settled for
a 4.5-4.5 tie with Scranton on
Monday afternoon at Summit
Hills in Clarks Summit.
Palma won his individual
match, 4 and 2, and Ohler picked
uphis first career win, 2-up, as the
duo combined to shoot a better-
ball score of 33.
Ian Nemetz also won an indi-
vidual point with a 2 and 1 win.
He and partner Adam Barsigian

The 2011 high school tennis
campaign is 24-hours away from
getting underway and both Pitt-
ston Area and Wyoming Area are
rarin to go.
Pittston Area coach, Kim Col-
lins, in her seventh-year as head
coach, and Wyoming Area coach,
Tony Callaio are optimistic for
this years season. Both teams are
looking to improve upon last
years records.
The Lady Patriots open up with
GAR at home tomorrow, and
Wyoming Area will begin their
season against Crestwood, also at
home.
Pittston Areas squad consists
of 11 players headed by four se-
niors. Thoseseniors are, AnnaPo-
drasky, Ali Quinn, Caitlynn Cad-
walder, and an injured Danielle
Corcoran.
Podrasky will be used in the
No.1slot as she was last year, and
juniors Miranda WarunekandAl-
iciaChopyakwill playsecondand
third singles, respectively.
The rest of the teamconsists of
sophomores Haleigh Zurek, Ta-
tianna Supinski, and Rosie Rit-
sick, and freshmen Mikhaela
Moher and Claudia Shandra.
Ali Quinn and Haleigh Zurek
will start in the No.1doubles spot,
but according to Coach Collins,
No.2 doubles is up for grabs.
We lost three girls to gradua-
tion but all are returning with the
exception of the two new fresh-
men, said Collins. Not only is
Coach Collins looking to better
last seasons record, shes in a
great position to build upon the
team for next year.
Collins lists Wyoming Semina-
ry, Dallas and Wyoming Valley
West as the top teams they will
face this year.
Fourth-year head coach Tony
Callaioisabit moreoptimisticgo-
ing into this years schedule after
fielding a team without a senior
last year. That means going into
2011, he will have six-seniors on
theteammakinguphalf theroster.
Imhoping the seniors can get
their game together and make a
dent intheschedule,saidCallaio.
Most of the veterans have at least
three years of tennis under their
belt, so its up to themif they want
to have a successful year or not.
Those six-seniors are Brina
Platt, NikoleDougherty, AlexRo-
mano, Alecia Pizano, Emily Lu-
kasavage, and Morgan Bilbow.
Valerie Bott has beenplayingin
the No.1spot for the last two-sea-
sons and will be looking to regain
that spot for this season. However
she sustained a knee injury this
past springandis doingher best to
bounce back.
JoiningBott will bePlatt, Luka-
savage, and junior Lisa Chihorek
vying for singles positions.
All three singles position are
up for grabs, noted Callaio. All
four girls are pretty much level
with each other at this point.
Doubles specialists Alex Ro-
mano and Alicia Pizano will be
back for their third-year while
MorganBilbow, NikoleDougher-
ty and sophomore Julia Gober
will battle for a spot playing dou-
bles.
Sophomore Britney Benkoski,
and freshmen Julia Banas and
Madeleine Ambruso are first-
year players and novices that are
showing improvement every day.
The sport is difficult as it is, so
its great to see these young ladies
making an effort daily to learn the
game and improve, added Call-
aio.
The schools will face each oth-
er onFriday, September16at Mat-
tei Middle School Courts in
Hughestown.

the Blue Devils. But that is not
to say Old Forge is totally inex-
perienced on the offensive line.
Senior Anthony Trotta, a
510, 220-pound guard/tackle,
returns after starting every
game at right tackle as a junior.
Trotta begins the season as the
right tackle as the Blue Devils
await 62, 220-pound sopho-
more Ryan Paulish to return
from an off-season knee injury.
When Paulish returns, Trotta is
likely to move to left guard to
give the Blue Devils another
athletic pulling guard.
Anthony Conforti, a 511, 205
senior is battling with senior
Cory Stuart who moves from
tight end for the left tackle
spot. Conforti can also slide
down to guard, while Trotta
could also see time at left tackle
depending on the development
of two other sophomores.
Paul Papi, 60, 190, will play
right guard, and Joey Bruno,
62, 200 will serve as the top
backup at guard and center. Se-
nior Nick Nally is also in the
mix at guard. Tyler Clark, a
511, 220-pound junior, will
start at center, and can also play
guard.
We see tons of comparisons
(to the group of young linemen
four years ago), but not to of-
fend anyone, this group is more
athletic, said Schuback whose
teams have won 68 games in his
nine seasons. Paul and Joey
are big kids that mirror what
Kyle (Holland) and AJ (Grasso)
brought to the table, and the
toughness that Stuart, Conforti,
and Tyler bring, reminds me a
lot of Mark (Zambetti).
We are more adaptive up-
front though with guys who can
play a bunch of positions,
which is kind of unique and will
work to our advantage. With
Febbo and Tomasetti back
there, any little hole and they
are going to exploit it.
Joey Ciuccio, a 511, 190-
pound senior will play fullback
with sophomore Jorden Sekol
serving as his backup. Junior
Anthony DeSando returns at
tight end after starting the sec-
ond half of the season as a soph-
omore.
Transfer Brenden Wahl, a
510, 165-pound junior will
serve as the backup quarter-
back, and juniors Anthony Pic-
colini and Elijah Wilson add
depth to the receiving corps.
Defensively, Trotta, Stuart
and Ciuccio will anchor the de-
fense. The three seniors are the
only returning starters among
the front seven in the Blue Dev-
ils 4-4 scheme.
Trotta racked up 94 tackles to
lead the team from his inside li-
nebacker position, while Stuart
and Ciuccio combined for 50
tackles and six sacks from their
defensive end positions.
Old Forge will also be experi-
enced at both cornerback spots
with Argust, Tomasetti and
Vieira set to rotate at the posi-
tion. Sophomore Jake Manetti
has earned the nod at safety
with Argust providing depth.
Conforti will man the other
inside linebacker spot after see-
ing time inside as a junior. Feb-
bo and senior Ryan Cadwalder
are set to start at outside line-
backer, leaving the only holes to
fill at tackle for the Big Blue
Wrecking Crew.
DeSando and Clark are set to
start at defensive tackle with ju-
nior David Rudy Rudalavage,
510, 200-pounds, Bruno and
Paulish in the rotation. DeSan-
do can also play defensive end,
as will Papi and sophomore
Paul Piemontese.
We have both our ends back
and we have great experience
inside, said Schuback. Con-
forti had a good season last year
in a backup role, and Trotta is
obviously going to be solid for
us. We return somewhat the
heart of our defense in a sense,
but the key is going to be up-
front.
Sekol and Nally will back up
Trotta and Conforti at inside li-
nebacker, and junior Warren
Welsh and sophomore Shane
Schuback will back up Febbo
and Cadwalder on the outside.
Junior Matt Mancuso returns
for his second season as the
Blue Devils kicker after con-
verting 32-of-34 extra points in
his first season on the gridiron.
Argust will serve as the Old
Forge punter after posting a
31.0-yard per punt average last
season.
The return of an experienced
core with a group of talented,
athletic underclassmen has
Schuback excited for the begin-
ning of the 2011 season.
Our skill kids are the
strength of our football team.
They really are talented, said
Schuback. And our sopho-
more class is going to be a big
plus for us. They are very ath-
letic and give us a big lift. Our
junior class is a little unseen,
unheard, but makes up a lot of
our skill group.
At the same time, Schuback
is aware the Blue Devils are a
bit under the radar in the Lacka-
wanna Football Conference Di-
vision III.
I think every game is going
to be difficult. Playing on the
road at Holy Cross on a Satur-
day, Montrose has a young staff
that will energize the program,
Trail is loaded, and what Sus-
quehanna did to us last year to
end the year motivates us, said
Schuback. It is good no one is
talking about us. It gives our
kids a sense of, Hey. Thats
good. Dont give us the atten-
tion.
But like a couple years ago,
we had three guys who people
knew about, and the others no
one knew about - blue collar
kids who just worked hard and
got the job done. This team has
more skill than that team
though, so I am really optimis-
tic.
Old Forge opens the season at
home Friday night against
Lake-Lehman at 7 p.m.

WVC East match with Coughlin
on Wednesday afternoon at
Wilkes-Barre Muni.
Matt Carroll, Chris Lynch and
CalvinOBoyle all shot 41for the
Patriots (2-0) as they beat the
Crusaders by seven strokes.
PA168, Tunkhannock 186
Pittston Areas Brandon Mat-
thews shot 40 in a WVC match
for the first time in over a year,
but it not matter as the Patriots
thumped Tunkhannock, 168-186
in the opening match of the
WVC East season last Monday.
Matthews did not shoot any-
thing worse than a 37 last season
as a junior. His 40 was good
enough to share medalist honors
with teammate Matt Carroll at
the Tigers home course, Stone
Hedge CC.
Ryan Tracy and Calvin
OBoyle each carded 44 for Pitt-
ston Area.
WA161, Tunkhannock 167
Wyoming Area dropped a
close match with Tunkhannock,
161-167, on Wednesday after-
noon at Fox Hill CC in Exeter.
Nick Rydzewski earned med-
alist honors with a 1-over par 36
for the Warriors, edging Brent
Christy who shot 37 for the Ti-
gers.
Zach Mulhern carded a 42 for
Wyoming Area, and Connor
Mangan shot 44. Jake Wysocki
added a 45 for the Warriors (0-2).
WA180, Coughlin 167
Wyoming Area struggled in its
season-opening match with
Coughlin at Wilkes-Barre Muni
on Monday afternoon in a 167-
180 loss.
Zach Mulhern was low man
for the Warriors with a 43.
Nick Rydzewski shot 45 for
Wyoming Area, and Mike Carey
and Courtney Melvin each card-
ed 46s.
Palma wins Low Senior
title at Jackman
Old Forges Corey Palma was
forced to settle for second after
finishing in a tie for first after the
first 18 holes of play at the annual
Jackman Memorial Tournament
at Scranton Muni last Friday.
Palma, and Abington Heights
senior Dalton Coldwater, each
shot even-par 72, forcing a play-
off on the No. 1 Par-5 at the
Mount Cobb course.
Coldwater, the son of Glen-
maura CC golf professional
Cleve Coldwater, won the event
with a bogey on the first playoff
hole after Palma hit his drive into
trouble and could not recover.
Despite losing out on the over-
all championship, Palma earned
the LowSenior title for his round
of 37-35. The three-year starter
for the Blue Devils became the
highest finishing Old Forge gol-
fer at the Jackman with his
round.

his has been a season of roster craziness for the Scran-
ton Wilkes-Barre Yankees and with September call-
ups on their way; the roster isnt getting any more
consistent.
This is true for any Triple-A team. There are always play-
ers coming up and going down trying to prove themselves
ready for the big leagues or out of necessity. Because of this,
the SWB Yankees are happy to have a couple of consistent
and valuable arms in their bullpen.
Pitchers going up and down, getting hurt or games just
being rained out have caused the team to be put in a pinch
about what to do with their team. When those times have
occurred though, it has been Lance Pendleton and George
Kontos to the rescue.
When you think of long relievers, you think of some of the
least talented pitchers on the team or just a guy that a team
can throw out there to eat up innings when the score def icit is
high. That is not the case with these guys.
If the SWB Yankees need someone to start a game, to come
in after a pitcher gives up a lot of runs, or even close a game
out, Manager Dave Miley hasnt hesitated to go to Pendleton
or Kontos.
Kontos has been the better Triple-A pitcher of the two. He
has pitched to a 4-4 record with a sparkling 2.73 ERA. Kon-
tos has pitched 87 innings and started four games. You cant
ask for better numbers out a long reliever.
I really like Kontos because of the number of go-to pitches
he has. He relies mostly on his slider to get hitters out, which
is easily his best pitch, because he can throw it for a strike in
any count.
Kontos has been slowed down in the past because of an arm
injury but I believe he is fully recovered. I also think that it
was the best thing that happened to his career.
When Kontos came back from his injury his velocity was
way down which forced him to learn how to become more of
a pitcher. Now, Kontos has his velocity back up and it goes
very nicely with his new found control.
Lance Pendleton is a different story. Pendletons numbers
arent as good as Kontos but he is still solid. He has a 3-4
record, 3.15 ERA, 65.2 innings pitched, and ten games start-
ed.
Pendleton relies on his control, which is good. It gets the
job done and done well.
Many of you may remember Pendleton from his call up to
New York earlier this season. His Big League experience is
what will set him apart from Kontos if it is between the two
of them to be called up.
Pendleton did a very nice job for the Yankees but I cant
really say I think hell be a good major league pitcher. It
could have been just beginners luck when he was there or I
could be completely wrong but I just dont believe his stuff
can translate to a successful Big League career.
Either way, Kontos and Pendleton have been great and
versatile options for the SWB Yankees this season.

thoughts on the SWB Yankees will appear in The Dispatch
throughout the season.

tionally quick across the board. I
think we have enough size and
length and certain spots to at
least match up fairly well.
As for special teams, Smith
will handle kickoffs and Lang-
don will be the new punter.
OBrien, LaNunziata, and
Bouie will be the teams kick re-
turners.
The Warriors are very versa-
tile this year on defense and most
of their players will see time all
over the football field, rather
than at one position.
It may be a new year, but the
expectations are the same for
Spencer.
As far as wins, losses, our
goals are always the same. We
are in a very tough, competitive
Division II bracket, Spencer
said. Our goal is always to com-
pete for the championshipwithin
that division and secure a playoff
berth. For that to happen we need
some young kids to grow up
pretty quickly.
Spencer is looking to start off
on the right foot when they open
their season on Friday night at
home against Western Wayne.
We hope to get out to a fast
start and we hope to build some
momentum, Spencer said.
But, the reality is those guys
that are transitioning from part-
timers to full-timers have to be
ready to take on that kind of
workload.

sion
Pittston Area Patriots
Hahnandjunior SammyFalcone
competing to be the primary
halfback, while juniors Joe
Giambra and Mark Romanczuk
will see time at fullback. Giam-
bra played well last season as a
sophomore, but his season was
cut short due to injury.
The teams primary strength
will be at wide receiver as the
Patriots return one of the top
playmakers inthe WyomingVal-
ley Conference in junior Jordan
Houseman. He will be the teams
featured receiver and Barrett
plans to focus the offense around
Houseman. And why not? As a
sophomore, Houseman scored
eight of Pittston Areas 15 touch-
downs on the season. He led the
team in receiving with 43 catch-
es for 556 yards and six scores,
and also rushed for a touchdown
and returned a kickoff for a
touchdown.
He is definitely going to be a
playmaker, Barrett said. Our
goal is to move the ball around as
much as possible, but hes a kid
who can take the ball at any time.
Jordan is going to be a focus.
Joining Houseman in the re-
ceiving corps will be seniors
Tyler Roman and Mike Stankos-
ki, and juniors Mike Chisdock
and Joe Starinsky. Brian Dela-
ney, a senior, makes his return as
the teams tight end.
The big boys up front on of-
fense will also be featured on the
defensive line, along with senior
Josh Schatzel. Senior Dave
Mawson and Roman will see
time at defensive end.
The biggest hole the Patriots
will have to fill is at middle line-
backer where they lost last sea-
sons top defender in Jeff Kram-
er.
But the coaches like what they
see in senior Jake Zalewski at
the position. As a junior, Zalew-
ski was second on the team in
tackles with 44. Junior Justin
Wilk, Falcone, and Romanczuk
will rotate at outside linebacker
in the Patriots 5-3 scheme.
Stankoski, Chisdock, Starin-
sky, and Houseman will roam
the secondary and look to dis-
rupt the plans of opposing quar-
terbacks. Hahnwill be the teams
primary safety.
The Patriots return one of the
better kickers in the WVC in se-
nior Chris Musto. He has been
working in the off-season and
has improved greatly. Musto
converted11extra-points as a ju-
nior and made a 38-yard field
goal.
Hes very, very good. He has
been getting good distance on
his kicks. He was down at the
Princeton Camp and did very,
very well there, Barrett said.
Hes just a tremendous kid. His
work ethic is very good and he is
an intelligent young man.
When Barrett was hired, he
watched a ton of film and was
very impressed with last years
team despite their record.
Looking back at the games, I
did have time to watch a lot of
filmin the off-season; they hung
in there tight, Barrett said.
As for expectations this year,
Barrett wouldnt provide a num-
ber.
We are going to be compet-
itive. There is no doubt about it,
Barrett aid. I dont want to give
you a number, but I think we are
going to be very competitive.
They need to expect to win every
game that they go in to. Youre
going to end up a lot better if you
go in to the game expecting to
win.
And fundamentally, thats the
perfect place to start.

Arrival and Dismissal
Information
The following information
will be in effect from the first
day of school until November 15
For arrival, buses will dis-
charge and pick up students on
Stephenson Street directly in
front of the school. Students will
proceed into the gym in case of
inclement weather or to the back
parking lot on Dickson Street, if
weather permits, where all will
assemble for the first bell. Car
riders should be dropped off on
Dickson Street, at the back park-
ing lot. If you must park your car
to drop off your child(ren),
please park in the newchurch lot
and walk your children to the
back lot on Dickson St. Teachers
will be on duty in the back park-
ing lot.
Walkers should report to the
back parking lot on Dickson
Street. For dismissal, buses will
pick up students on Stephenson
Street directly in front of the
school. Only bus students will be
dismissed from the front door.
Car riders and walkers will be
dismissed fromthe back door in-
to the back parking lot. If you
must park your car to drop off or
pick up your child(ren), please
park in the new church lot and
walk to the back lot on Dickson
St. to meet them. Please observe
the following one-way traffic
pattern on Dickson St. to ensure
our students safety: From Old
Forge and north, please drive
down Marcy St/Swetland St to
the end. Turn left onto Watt St.
and left onto Dickson Street to
discharge students. After stu-
dents are dropped off, proceed
up Dickson St. to Main. If you

rectly in front of the parking lot.

onto Watt St. and right onto
Dickson Street to discharge stu-
dents. After students are drop-
ped off, proceed up Dickson St.
back to Main. If you must park,
please do not park directly in
front of the parking lot. This traf-
fic pattern will prevent students
from having to cross traffic to
get onto the parking lot. Since
Dickson St. is rather narrow, it
should also eliminate traffic
congestion. For the safety of
your children, we ask you to
cooperate fully with these direc-
tives.

Wyoming Valley Montessori
School (www.wvms.org) will
start its 42nd year for students,
18 months through sixth grade,
on Monday, August 29.
Wyoming Valley Montessori
School was founded in 1970 as
a private, non-profit academic
school incorporating the phi-
losophy and methods of Dr.
Maria Montessori. Multi-age
groupings, a rich and extensive
curriculum implemented with
hands on materials, individual-
ized attention to each childs
learning style, and cross-disci-
plinary learning are some the
characteristics that makes a
Montessori classroom different
from a more traditional class-
room.
Wyoming Valley Montessori
School currently has limited
availability for the upcoming
2011-2012 school year and is
also accepting applications for
enrollment for the 2012-2013
school year. Families may call
Lynn Klein, director of admis-
sions, at 288-3708 or email
lynn@wvms.org for more in-
formation.
