left many in the Clarks

and Inn and executive chef Matthew Vinetti,
known for “classic cuisine with a contempo-
rary flair,” extend their reach further with
seafood paella, served for dinner once a week
in coordination with “Tapas Tuesday.”
This plate showcases a medley of fresh
seafood resting on a delicate bed of basmati
rice.
“It is just a little bit of everything,” says
Kathy Tumavitch, sales manager.
This dish, like many others, represents the
diverse food served at Camelot.
“We have an across-the-board menu so
there is something for everyone to enjoy,”
said Melinda Sanderson, general manager.
“With our food we want people to feel satis-
fied, happy and content, like they really en-
joyed themselves.”
The seafood paella, created by Vinetti, will
be included in this year’s Rotary of the
Abingtons Taste of the Abingtons, Sept. 25.
Within its layers of color, it features shrimp,
scallops, fresh clams, chorizo, bell peppers,
saffron basmati rice and is slowly roasted
over an open flame and served steaming hot.

opening in July 2010, said there are several

For President of the Abington
Community Library Board of
Trustees Frank Santoriello, it’s
all about his roots. Santoriello
was born in1960 in an orphan-
age in Brooklyn and adopted at
age 2 by his mother and father.
He is also the oldest of nine
adopted children. Santoriello
watched his parents, despite
financial difficulty, take in ap-
proximately 50 foster children.
His parents’ home was also a
safe house for children who had
been abused and removed from
their homes.
“There is nothing more im-
portant to me than family,” San-
toriello said.
Santoriello’s journey includes
having gradu-
ated from
Grumman
Aerospace
Institute in
Long Island,
N.Y., in1979.
“These were
the people who
put people on
the moon,” Santoriello said.
He received a certificate in
computer operations and taught
himself the rest. He then worked
for National Medical Manage-
ment in Long Island. When part
of the company was purchased
by a company in Bethlehem, he
moved with the company and
stayed until 1985. From1985 to

EDITOR’S NOTE
Editor:
The Christy Mathewson
Days Committee enjoyed an-
other great event and we would
like to thank the countless
volunteers and community
groups who make our weekend
possible. The weather cooper-
ated and the rain held off until
all our festivities were done.
We felt like the spirit of Christy
must have been smiling down
on us.
Keystone College was in-
strumental in the planning and
work of the weekend. The
staff, under the guidance of
President Edward Boehm, is
involved in all aspects of the
weekend. These dedicated
individuals always go above
and beyond to make the event a
success. This year once again
Keystone graciously provided
the venue for the Christy Math-
ewson Days Documentary,
followed by an ice cream so-
cial, provided the breakfast for
the community on the college
green, and was involved in all
the weekend events. The part-
nership Keystone shares with
the community of Factoryville
is a wonderful and positive
collaboration. This partnership
is what makes Christy Math-
ewson Days such a memorable
event each year.We must also
mention all the support of
students and staff of Lacka-
wanna Trail High School, es-
pecially Dina Berrios and the
Lackawanna Trail Cheerlead-
ers. The kids’ quarter fair was
organized and staffed by these
energetic volunteers and all the
younger kids playing the
games had a great time. The
LTHS football team, cheer-
leaders, cross country partici-
pated in various events from
the parade to running in our
Big 6K race. Because of this
support we had more runners
participating in our race than
ever before.
A special thanks goes to the
Coal Town Rounders for pro-
viding great music for our
events on Saturday afternoon at
Christy Mathewson Park. Spe-
cial thanks also goes to all the
businesses and civic groups
that supported our celebration
by sponsoring the Big 6K race,
working the multiple conces-
sions, making parade floats,
and being involved with this
community event. The list
seems endless, as is our grat-
itude to all the volunteers and
our wonderful local businesses.
Lastly, we would like to
thank The Abington Journal
for the coverage of our cele-
bration. It was wonderful to
have such support from our
local newspaper and reporters.
Your reporters and photog-
raphers really captured the
essence of our small town
community and our tribute to
our hometown hero.
It would be impossible to
name all the volunteers who
make Christy Mathewson Days
possible. It is a great thing to
see that the spirit of volun-
teerism is alive in our borough
and has enabled us to have
another great celebration.
Thanks to all of you that
helped make it possible.

to company President Ryan Andrews.
“Governor Corbett is very supportive
of the industry, which promises to cre-
ate more jobs and growth for not only
our region, but for all of Pennsylvania
during the economically challenging
times our nation is facing,” said An-
drews.
Andrews and his family hosted a
luncheon for the governor at the compa-
ny’s Tioga Street headquarters to in-
troduce the governor to Mountain Ener-
gy employees as well as representatives
fromgas companies his company con-

Governor TomCorbett recently met
with the owners of Mountain Energy
Services to discuss the positive eco-
nomic impact the gas industry is having
on Northeastern Pennsylvania and the
company’s role in its growth in the End-
less Mountains region.
The Tunkhannock -based company,
started by Ryan and Matt Andrews in
2009 with10 trucks and a handful of
employees to service the Marcellus
Shale’s expanding drilling and comple-
tions operations in the local region, has
grown substantially in two years.

Mountain Energy Services provides
vacuumtrucks for dispatch 24 hours a

Every year, Labor Day
means three things: the end of
summer, the start of the
school year and the annual
Labor Day Bull Roast at Wa-
verly United Methodist
Church Sept. 5. This year
marks the 42nd year of the
bull roast, and though the
event lasts only from1 to 5
p.m. or when the bull runs
out, mouths are watering al-
ready.
Event coordinator Holly
Gilpin said the bull roast has
become an area tradition that
the Abington community
looks forward to from the day
after the roast to the next one
a year later.
“It’s just a great tradition,”
she said . “People can see
each other after a whole
year… It’s like a big family
reunion.”
But this is not a backyard
burger-and-hot-dog barbecue.
Grillmaster Ron Whitaker
takes the bull by the horns
when he cooks more than 20
pounds of beef rounds on an
open fire. The cooking starts
at dawn, then Whitaker roasts
steaks all morning until the
carnivores arrive.
Steak isn’t the only meat in
the stew. In the past, only 10
percent of that year’s Labor
Day Bull Roast proceeds have
gone to charities. This year,
100 percent of all the money
brought in will be given as
charitable donations to spon-
sored impoverished communi-
ties: to benefit the victims of
the flooding in Plymouth, The
Abington Ecumenical Minis-
terium Food Pantry, St. Fran-
cis of Assisi Kitchen The
Women’s Resource Center,
children of the Abington
Heights School District who
will need winter coats, gloves
and hats, victims of the torna-
dos in Joplin, Mo., the Hen-
derson Settlement in Ken-
tucky and the Rose Bud Indi-
an Reservation in North Da-
kota. “This year, the proceeds
go straight to the people who
need it,” Gilpin said, “We are
a mission-minded church…
We just want to help.”
The first bull roast was held
in 1969 by the Waverly United
Methodist Church men’s
group. Soon, their wives
helped by making dessert.
Then, in 1991, the Labor Day
Bull Roast became a commu-
nity event. Now, after 42
meat-filled years, it’s happen-
ing again.
When the day finally ar-
rives, the age old question of
“Where’s the beef?” will be
answered: Waverly United
Methodist Church, Sept. 5,
from1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

WAVERLY - The buzz of elec-
tric drills, the pound of ham-
mers, scattered conversation
and music from a portable radio
all mixed into the background
during the first day of the Play-
ground Rebuilding Project
Aug. 24 at the Waverly Com-
munity House, where dozens of
volunteers, friends and strang-
ers, worked together under a
hot sun and bright blue sky.
Over the next few days, the
physical scene changed as the
playground was torn down and
re-built plank by plank, and the
sunny weather turned into wind
and rain Aug. 28. But the spirit
of the project, the teamwork-
oriented attitude of the volun-
teers and the coordinated ef-
forts of those in charge, re-
mained the same.
The playground, located at
the Waverly Community
House, otherwise known as
“The Comm,” 1115 North
Abington Road, was originally
built in 1990. According to
Executive Director Maria Wil-
son, when the playground at
The Comm was inspected last,
several safety regulations were
found; the wood was splinter-
ing, and new safety codes have
been put into effect within the
last 20 years. While it is an
updated version with polyvinyl
chloride (PVC) on the deck and
handrails and arsenic-free pres-
sure-treated wood, the layout
remains the same.
The effects of Hurricane
Irene this past weekend slightly
hampered the efforts of the
many volunteers who have been
working to complete the pro-
ject.
“Despite the tremendous
effort by volunteers, including
people working on Sunday, the
project was delayed by the hur-
ricane,” Wilson said. “The pro-
ject will continue this week in
shifts and we hope to have it
completed by the weekend. We
have a core of volunteers led by
co-chairs Chris and Rob Saun-
ders who have been working
around the clock to get it done.”
According to Wilson, Wa-
verly Twp. has provided “tre-
mendous support” throughout
the project. Their entire road
crew has been involved with the
construction.
While Wilson acknowledged
that some parts likely will not
be finished by this weekend
including a slide, she is hopeful
that it will be safe to open.
Wilson said a ribbon cutting
ceremony will likely be sched-
uled in two to three weeks when
the finishing touches are com-
plete.
The project is a total volun-
teer effort.
Waverly Township Super-
visor Ron Whitaker said in the
Groundbreaking Ceremony
Aug. 24, “I just want to thank
everyone for coming out to-
day…It’s a great turnout al-
ready. It’s just amazing.”
Whitaker said he was there
for the original building of the
playground, and recognized a
few other faces in the crowd
who had been there as well.
After the ceremony, he was
found hard at work on a team
pre-drilling new deck boards
for the playground.
People of all ages showed up
to help and many were young
adults in their late teens and
early 20s who remember play-
ing on the playground when
they were children. John Mack-
arey, 20, of Dalton, was helping
stain the new wood. He said, “I
always played here when I was
younger, so I came to help out
and brought some friends.”
Sandy Davidock, 44, of Wa-
verly, who was hard at work
with a hammer, said she came
to help because her daughter
plays there. “This is such a big
project,” she said. “Every bit
helps.”
As the project neared com-
pletion, and threats of a hurri-
cane also drew near, volunteers
continued to show their deter-
mination and dedication, work-
ing to 11 p.m. Aug. 27 and ar-
riving again the next morning
despite the wind and rain, ac-
cording to Chris Saunders,
co-chair of the project. Saun-
ders said it was fantastic seeing
different age groups, churches
and members of the community
coming together to work.
Saunders said that as of Mon-
day morning, more than 600
people had come to volunteer
since the start of the project.

Through a regional in-store
fundraiser and contributions
from local franchise owners,
Dunkin’ Donuts of Northeast-

nated $19,700 to support St.
Joseph’s Center in Scranton. It
is Dunkin’ Donuts’ second
consecutive year working with
St. Joseph’s Center, donating
in total more than $42,000
since last summer’s initial
fundraising program.
Dunkin’ Donuts shops
across Northeastern Pa. host-
ed a daylong fundraising event
to raise money for St. Joseph’s
Center. On July 20, all 54
Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in
the region offered a free medi-
um iced coffee to customers
who made a donation of $1 or
more to support St. Joseph’s
Center. Local owners repre-
senting regional Dunkin’ Do-
nuts restaurants presented a
check for $16,200 at St. Jo-
seph’s Center Summer Festiv-
al and Telethon July 30, an
achievement that they attri-
bute to the support and loyalty
of their Dunkin’ Donuts cus-
tomers. Dunkin’ Donuts local
Northeastern Pa. owners and
franchisees donated an addi-
tional $3,500 earlier in the
month to kick off Go Joe XIV,
WNEP’s Joe Snedeker’s an-
nual fundraiser for St. Jo-
seph’s Center.
“St. Joseph’s Center is
grateful to Dunkin’ Donuts
and all of its franchisees and

we’re thrilled to support St.
Joseph’s Center,” said Jessica
Weissman, field marketing
manager, Dunkin’ Donuts.
“This is our second year part-
nering with them in their fun-
draising efforts, and we want
to sincerely thank our loyal
guests across the region for
their generosity. Through their

which has a positive impact
on the lives of so many people
in our region.”

CLARKS SUMMIT - Ac-
cording to an executive sum-
mary from Strategy for Pro-
tecting and Restoring the Che-
sapeake Bay Watershed, Presi-
dent Barack Obama declared
the Chesapeake Bay a “na-
tional treasure” in an Exec-
utive Order on Chesapeake
Bay Protection and Restora-
tion. The purpose of the exec-
utive order is to protect and
restore the health, natural
resources and economic value
of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Clarks Summit Shade
Tree Commission, along with
the other shade tree commis-
sions in the Abington area,
likes to contribute to this
cause for the Chesapeake Bay.
The commission is doing its
part by planting more trees
around Clarks Summit.
“Clarks Summit is currently
33.9 percent tree cover,” said
Donna Zagrapan, president of
the Clarks Summit Shade
Tree Commission. “Our goal
for the Chesapeake Bay initia-
tive is to get to 40 percent.
We, over the next 25 years,
need to plant 89 trees a year.”
The commission is offering
the public bare roots trees to
purchase until Sept. 15. Bare
roots trees are trees that are
dug and stored without any
soil around their roots. Instead
of soil, the roots are dipped
into a hydro gel. They are
grown by the NEPA Tree
Commission, which includes
all of the Abington area shade
tree commissions. These trees
are lightweight and can be
planted in front of one’s house
or business.
One of the most unique of
the bare roots trees is the
shade master honey locust,
which has leaves that melt
away when they fall on the
soil so there is no raking nec-
essary. It grows 1.5 feet per
year and costs $82. The rest of
the bare roots trees are the
sugar tyme crabapple, which
cost $95; the red sunset ma-
ple, bloodgood London plane-
tree and the pin oak, which
cost $104; and the red oak and
the ivory silk tree lilac, which
cost $115.
People who purchase the
bare roots trees can pick them
up at the Department of Pub-
lic Works garage.
“We can help people plant
the trees,” said Zagrapan. “I
can help them select the site,
select the tree for the site,
assist in the planting and ad-
vise on the tree care.
For details, contact Zagra-
pan at donnaz@comcast.net.

1993, Santoriello worked for
Emery Airfreight in Dunmore in
computer operations. In1993,
he joined METLife, where he
remains today. His job is that of
a relationship manager for the
executive group. It’s his respon-
sibility to make certain all the
technologies are working in-
cluding those in jets and limos
around the world.
Santoriello’s stint with the
library began when he was in-
vited to join the library board.
After a fewyears on the board
and as vice president, he was
asked to serve as president. “The
library is one of the jewels and
crowns of the Abingtons,” San-
toriello said. “It’s almost the
center of the community. And
we have seen increased usage
during these tough economic
times.”
Currently, the board is work-
ing on sustaining the library
despite the budget cuts. “We’re
always improving our services
and looking for newpartner-
ships like the one with the
school district,” said Santoriello.
“The purpose of that is to ensure
if children are doing reports,
we’re notified so that we have
what they need.”
Santoriello talked about how
the rest of the trustees are critical
to the library’s success and that
they are a wonderful group of
people. “We may be small, but
we’re powerful because of the
community we have behind us.”
In addition to his duties as
president to the Abington Com-
munity Library Board of Trust-
ees -this is his third term- Santo-
riello serves as director of the
Abington Heights School Board
of Education and is up for re-
election. He is also a member
for the Abington Area Joint
Recreation Committee, board
member and past president of
Leadership Lackawanna, board
member and past president of
Serving Seniors, Inc., member
of UNICONational and is Unit-
ed Way Campaign Chairperson
for METLife’s Clarks Summit
office.
Santoriello has been married
15 years to his wife, Chaun. He
has five children: Johanna, 18;
Cherise, 20: Yvonne, 31; Kris-
tin, 35 and Erik, 38. His six
grandchildren include Dylan,
12; Samson, 10; Emaline Rose,
17 months, Gabriel, 11; Aiden, 7
and Kaleb, 5.

Abington Township.
Meet the
President
Interests and hobbies: History,
politics, flyfishing, canoeing
Inspired by: My parents –
adopting 9 children; 50 plus
foster children and a safe home
to children who were victims of
abuse. They had more love and
caring for those less fortunate
and vulnerable. I try to live their
example every day.
Favorite place in the world: My
backyard
Favorite book: “Tale of Two
Cities” by Charles Dickens
Greatest achievement: My
journey is not over yet. I will have
an answer for this at the end of
my days.
Idea of a perfect Saturday
afternoon: Barbecuing and sitting
back on my chair in the backyard
watching the family, friends, kids
and grandkids running around;
swimming; being loud and happy.
Can’t leave home without: A kiss
from my bride

Clarks Summit, Camelot is
open from11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
daily. A list of events and
more information can be
found on http://www.camel-
otrestaurantandinn.com, in-
cluding “Tapas Tuesday” that
started on August 16. This
night is a chance for friends
to get together, order great
food, share a pitcher of red,
blue or white sangria and
relax to the sounds of Latin
music.
“At previous places I’ve
worked and kitchens I’ve
headed up, tapas has been a
huge success. I just thought it
was lacking in this area. The
spirit of tapas is not only the
cuisine, but also the family
experience… More social as
well as a dining experience.
You get to sample a few dif-
ferent plates instead of just
one, ” said Vinetti.
In addition, there is a Sun-
day brunch buffet from11
a.m. to 2:30 p.m. featuring
carving stations and a chef-
paella pan to Taste of the
Abingtons and prepare the
dish on site.
“I think Taste of the Abing-
tons is a great fundraiser and
a good opportunity for us to
give back to the community,”
said Tumavitch. “It is a fun
evening out to enjoy yourself
with friends. The date also
marks our one- year anni-
versary, so this is a fun way
for us to also celebrate.”
Dr. Joseph Soliman is the
owner of this casual yet ele-
gant restaurant. Resting
quietly at the top of the hill,
Camelot also serves as a bed
and breakfast for a relaxing
weekend getaway.
“We want the service for
people to be attentive while
also being accompanied by a
satisfying meal,” said Sand-
erson. “Inside, the atmo-
sphere is sincere and inviting,
especially in the winter when
our fireplaces give off a
warm glow.”
Located at 17 Johnson Rd.,
sections of the Tapas Tuesday
that feature an eclectic blend
and classic cuisine. One of
the feature items in the sea-
food tapas is the paella.
Among the sizzling tapas
section, which arrive at the
table sizzling hot, are shrimp
and garlic with fresh thyme,
garbanzos with chorizo sau-
sage and paprika. Other tapas
sections are vegetable and
cheese, which includes ni-
coise and fingerling potato
salad among others. And
pork tenderloin and beef tips,
are part of the more eclectic
portion of the tapas menu.
Vinetti said, “Sizzling tapas
arrive in a small metal vessel
with and olive oil base, really
rich flavors… It’s very aro-
matic and effervescent with
the aroma of fresh thyme and
herbs.”
He plans to bring a large
attended omelette station that
began Aug. 21. The brunch
includes traditional favorites
like homemade pancakes,
sausage, weekly fish specials,
french toast with spiced apri-
cot compote, oven roasted
chicken and desserts. Cost is
$21.50 for adults; $12.50 for
children 6 to 12; and $5 for
those ages 2 to 5.

quickly and safely as possible
remains our top priority.”
According to PPL, the Ho-
nesdale, Pocono and Scranton
region of Northeast Pa. has
been the hardest-hit area, with
about 49,000 customers still
without power.
The utility company expects
a prolonged, multi-day restora-
tion effort due to widespread
wind, rain and flooding dam-
age throughout its 29-county
service area. About 123,700
customers remained without
power at 7:30 a.m. Monday.
“We thank our customers for
their patience. We have more
than 1,600 people working on
this recovery and many dedi-
cated, experienced crews
throughout our service area.
We anticipate that we will be
able to restore thousands of
customers today,” Bonenberg-
er said Monday.
They hoped to have a major-
ity of the area’s power restored
by Monday. But some areas
might not be back in service
until Thursday and Friday, as
PPL continues to assess the
situation.
Additional crews were ex-
pected to arrive on Monday
and Tuesday from utilities in
Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana to
help restore service to custom-
ers. About 300 tree and line
crews are working 16-hour
days. A smaller staff of em-
ployees worked in the field
during overnight hours to
cover emergencies.
PPL Electric Utilities urged
its customers to stay safe, and
has advised everyone to stay
away from downed power
lines and always assume they
are energized. They requested
customers to turn off electric
ovens, ranges or space heaters
that may have been on when
the outage began.
Customers experiencing
prolonged outages can visit
PPL Electric Utilities online
outage center at www.pple-
lectric.com/outage for in-
formation on ice and water
distributors.
Also, customers without
power are asked to report their
outages at 1.800.DIAL.PPL or
online at www.pplelec-
tric.com/outage.
The American Red Cross
also began to send out Disaster
Assessment Teams this week
to get a better look at the dam-
age and see what needs to
done next for the people af-
fected.
Donations for Hurricane
Irene or other disasters are
being accepted at local Red
Cross offices. Donations can
be made by visiting www.red-
cross.org or by texting the
word REDCROSS to 90999 to
make a $10 donation.”

ArtsEtc...
Last Wednesday’s Gathering
of Singers and Songwriters 10
was quite a celebration. We
were delighted that so many
of you came out to enjoy the
evening.
The Dietrich was just filled
with glorious music from
instrumentals on the banjo,
fiddle and guitar by Jay Smar
to George Wesley’s reggae
inspired tunes, to Kate Jor-
dan’s humor in “These Last
Few Pounds,” to KJ Wagner’s
positive message in her upbeat
songs, to Donna Hill’s songs
about perseverance. And of
course, Lorne Clarke and Tom
Flannery entertained us with
their lively banter and amaz-
ing lyrics.
Their songs, inspired by
family members’ struggles
with Alzheimer’s disease,
were especially moving. We
would like to thank Tom,
Lorne, Jay, George, Kate,
Donna and KJ for being so
generous to us with their time
and talent. This year’s concert
was the best ever.
Rehearsals also started last
week for the Dietrich Chil-
dren’s Theatre’s upcoming
production of “Lon Po Po: A
Little Red Riding Hood Story
from China.” It should be
fantastic. I love the script, and
Sarah Henn always does a
beautiful job on costuming.
Plus our ensemble of actors,
including Rich Ryczak, David
Swanson, Laurel Radzieski
and Doreen Schottman, are so
energetic.
Kids will love to see the
similarities and differences
between the Chinese version
of this beloved folk tale and
the Little Red Riding Hood
tale that they are familiar
with. During the play, kids
will learn a few Chinese
words and interact with the
cast of characters.
Performances will be held
on Friday, September 9 at 10
a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and Sat-
urday, September 10 at 11 a.m.
After each show, storyteller
Fiona Powell and the actors
will have a question and an-
swer session with the audi-
ence. And the best part is that
admission is free thanks to
funding from the Pennsylva-
nia Humanities Council.
Call the Dietrich at
570.996.1500 to reserve your
free tickets, or you can pick
them up at the ticket booth
while supplies last.
Dietrich fall classes will
start up the week following
“Lon Po Po,” visit www.die-
trichtheater.com for a full
slate of classes for all ages.
In September, you will no-
tice, that we are offering pot-
tery and sculpture courses for
all ages at the Dietrich.
From little artists and their
moms, dads, and grandpar-
ents, to school age children, to
adults, everyone will have the
opportunity to experience
working with clay.

L
abor Day weekend always
brings the same constants:
cool weather, shorter days,
the dreaded back-to-school dis-
cussions. But in northeastern
Pennsylvania, is also has come to
symbolize the return of the Steam-
town Original Music Showcase.
The showcase debuted in down-
town Scranton five years ago at
Heil’s Place. This year, the Show-
case will be held from Sept. 2 to 4
in venues throughout downtown
Scranton.
People attending can expect to
see clinics from the areas top
songwriters, panels from music
industry experts and more than 40
bands performing on one night for
only $10.
Although the event is spread
over three days, the bulk of the
action takes place Sunday.
Starting as early as 2 p.m. and
going well until the late hours of
Monday morning, bands like A
Fire With Friends, MiZ, Nowhere
Slow, Laser Sex, Super Bob and
Graces Downfall can be found
playing at seven different Scranton
venues.
Fans of all music will be satis-
fied as every genre is covered
throughout the weekend.
“The whole goal was to bring
together a lot of the acts that were
performing around here and basi-
cally show them off to the city of
Scranton,” event organizer John
Phillips said.
“The biggest thing about this is I
want to expose a lot of the acts
that play locally.”
Phillips has been active in the
music scene for several years play-
ing solo gigs as well as in the
bands UUU and Ourafter.
Ourafter will be performing at
the showcase on Sunday. This
year, Breaking Benjamin drummer
Chad Szeliga will showcase his
talents in a Friday night clinic, and
guitarist/songwriter Chad Taylor
of Live hosts a music business
seminar Saturday afternoon.
“I really wanted to give fans
something to look forward to with
the clinics,” Phillips said. “It’s
almost like a pre-showcase kick
off to give everyone a little taste of
the big night.” Phillips even ex-
panded the national acts into the
performances on Sunday night.
Super Bob, a band that tours
regionally, will be playing inside
the Scranton Hardware Bar, and
The Menzingers, a Scranton-based
punk band that recently signed to
Epitaph Records, will return to
play at The Vintage Theater.
Musicians aren’t the only ones
getting involved. Local production
company, 25-8 Productions, will
capture the entire night by filming
all the sets at the Scranton Hard-
ware Bar for a planned documen-
tary.
The showcase falls at a great
time, Phillips explained. Scran-
ton’s First Friday and Italian festiv-
al will be taking place within the
same three days.
“The goal is to give people in
the area something to do,” said
Phillips. “A lot of people like to go
to the beach or leave town, but
between First Friday, La Festa
Italia, and the showcase, you can’t
really say there isn’t anything go-

The Abington Area Commu-
nity Classroom, a volunteer
organization with a mission to,
according to its website, “pro-
vide the community with en-
richment and recreation
through a broad array of learn-
ing opportunities,” is offering a
variety of classes to the com-
munity this fall. Multiple class-
es are offered in various cate-
gories such as humanities, arts
and crafts, health and fitness,
computers and business, and
food and drink.
Some of the courses offered
this fall are new, and others are
repeats with fresh perspectives.
Acreative writing class will be
taught for the third time, but
with a newtheme focusing on
the senses, according to in-
structor Jane Honchell. She
said the class will include in-
class instruction, discussion,
and activities, and time for
students to read their work and
it will focus on different types
of creative writing such as poet-
ry, nonfiction, drama and what-
ever else the students wish to
write.
“People all want to write, but
like anything else, we procrasti-
nate,” Honchell said. “But tak-
ing a class gives you the moti-
vation to write.”
The class, she said, will be
motivating, but without pres-
sure, and without grades. “It’s
very lowkey and relaxed and
friendly and non-stressful,” she
said.
It will run for six weeks and
meet on Tuesdays, starting
Sept. 6, at the Clarks Summit
United Methodist Church on
Morgan Highway. The fee is
$65. Pre-registration is required
for all of the AACCclasses, as
space is limited, and registration
information can be found on
the website, www.aacclass.org.
One of the newclasses of-
fered this fall is “Financial
Literacy: Basics of Investing”,
with Pat Delaney, registered
investment advisor. This class
will be offered on Thursdays,
starting Sept. 15, at the First
Presbyterian Church in Clarks
Summit.
Delaney said the class will
provide a basic background of
economics and business. She
said students will learn about
the risks and benefits of differ-
ent types of investments and
howto look at common compa-
ny financial reports and eco-
nomic statistics.
“It’ll give themenough
knowledge to interpret what
they hear in the media and put
themin a better position to
manage their investments,” said
Delaney
Delaney has a Bachelor’s
degree in economics fromWest
Chester University and also
studied accounting at The Uni-
versity of Scranton. She said
that although she didn’t work in
the field immediately after
school, she always maintained
an interest in economics. “It’s
so important today that people
have this knowledge,” she said.
The fee for the class is $60
and the deadline to register is
Sept. 1.
Pia Mazzarelle, of Scranton,
will be teaching a Spanish
class, which she said will in-
clude basic grammar, verb
structures, forming sentences,
asking questions. She said that
upon completion of this eight-
week course, students should be
able to understand basic Span-
ish phrases and travel expres-
sions and be able to ask basic
questions in Spanish.
She said she hopes that the
students will learn enough in
the class to sustain an interest
which will motivate themto
continue learning the language.
While this is her first time
teaching this particular class,
Mazzarelle said she taught
Spanish for about 20 years at
the Scranton School District.
The Spanish class will be
held on Thursdays, starting
Sept. 15 at the First Presby-
terian Church in Clarks Sum-
mit, and the fee is $65.
Another course offered this
fall for the first time at AACC
is An Introduction to “A
Course in Miracles,” a text
published by the Foundation
for Inner Peace. The class will
be instructed by Cathy McAn-
drews, whose teaching experi-
ence over the past 30 years has
included teaching English at
Bishop O’Hara High School,
writing at Penn State, King’s
College, Marywood Uni-
versity and the University of
Scranton, English as a Second
Language at Northeast Inter-
mediate School in Scranton
and The Artist Way class at
Tudor Book Store. McAn-
drews said via e-mail that the
goal for the class is to “learn
to reverse our thinking and to
become aware of love’s pres-
ence.” She said that along
with excerpts from“ACourse
in Miracles,” portions of “A
Return to Love,” by of Mar-
ianne Williamson will also be
read. Students will benefit
fromthe class, she said, in
that, “it will make a signif-
icant contribution to their
lives, as it did to mine. They
will sense a shift in their
thinking. Practicing the les-
sons leads to an increase in
joy and peace.” The course
will be held on Thursdays,
starting Sept. 22, at the First
Presbyterian Church in Clarks
Summit, and the fee is $65.
Other classes offered by the
AACCthis fall include Un-

fall with the Abington Area Com-

Classes enriching

The sanctuary of First Pres-
byterian Church will be
swinging at 10 a.m. Sept. 6.
For the 20th year in a row, the
congregation welcomes a
team of world-class musicians
to lead an annual Jazz Com-
munion service.
The tradition of a jazz wor-
ship service began in 1992
when the church sought a
substitute organist for Labor
Day weekend. The worship
leaders turned to their pastor,
Rev. Bill Carter, a seasoned
jazz pianist. He invited other
musicians to join him in lead-
ing the service. It has become
a standing-room-only event,
and has continued as an an-
nual musical tradition on La-
bor Day weekend.
The renowned musicians
who will take part in this
year’s celebration include Jeff
Stockham on trumpet, tenor
saxophonist Michael Carbone
and vocalists Warren Cooper
and Tim Norton. The core of
the band will include the high-
ly respected Presbybop Quar-
tet, with Tony Marino on bass,
Ron Vincent on drums, Al
Hamme on alto saxophone,
and bandleader Bill Carter on
the piano.
Music for the event will be
drawn from the Presbybop
Quartet’s eight CDs, along
with music specially prepared
for this anniversary celebra-
tion. The band has garnered
praised from jazz icon Dave
Brubeck, who said “I love
what they are doing to get
churches to swing.” The group
has performed all over the
country, with recent concerts
at Marywood University,
Scranton Jazz Festival, and the
main stage at the Chautauqua
Institution.
The music will begin
around 9:45 a.m. at First Pres-
byterian Church, 300 School
St., Clarks Summit. All are
welcome to attend. For details,
contact the church at
570.586.6306 or via

Rev. Bill Carter, pastor and jazz pianist, shown above, will perform at the First Presbyterian church in Clarks
Summit at 10 a.m. on Sept. 6.

and non-fiction, ready for circulation this week. New-
comers on the large print shelves include:
“Iron House” by John Hart. For 20 years, Michael, a
fugitive from the Iron Mountain Home for Boys, has been
an enforcer in New York’s world of organized crime, but
when he meets Elena, he wants a fresh start with her. The
mob boss’ son is intent on revenge against Michael. Fear-
ing for their lives, Michael takes Elena and flees to the
place he’s been running from his whole life: Iron House.
“Newport Summer” by Nikki Poppen. Gannon Maddox,
Earl of Camberly, launches a desperate venture into New-

50s and recently widowed, Kate Rendlesham stumbles

ley, is an unexpected surprise, but eventually Jack has his
own grand plans and dreams, for his house, for his future,
and for Kate.
“The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady” by Elizabeth
Stuckey-French. The heroine of this dark comedy is 77-
year-old Marylou Ahearn. In 1953, Dr. Wilson Spriggs
gave her a radioactive cocktail as part of a secret govern-
ment study that had horrible consequences. Marylou has
been plotting her revenge for fifty years and her plans
snap into action when she discovers the now senile
Spriggs living in Florida.

Fallinginlovewithabookisa
lot like having a mad crush on
someone whenyou’re a teenag-
er. Remember when you
couldn’t bear to hang up the
phone with him or her, even
thoughyou’dexhaustedall pos-
sible topics of conversation and
your mother was threatening to
ground you for life if you didn’t
get off the phone immediately,
or how reluctant you were to
closethedoor onthebest dateof
your life? Well, once in a very
great while, Ifeel that wayabout
a book. Normally, I read at the
speed of a bullet train, tearing
downthetracks of abook’s pag-
essofast that Isometimesfinish
anovel inadayor two, but when
I really fall hard for a book, as I
did with Nicholson Baker’s
“The Anthologist,” I can’t stand
for thebooktoend, soI dragout
my reading, rationing myself to
maybe a chapter every few
days. I managed to make “The
Anthologist” last for more than
a month.
Nicholson Baker has been
getting a lot of media play re-
centlyduetothepublicationthis
month of his latest book,
“House of Holes,” whichis said
to be both hilarious and filthy,
according to a feature story in
the“TheNewYorkTimesMag-
azine.” Baker has writtensever-
al sexybooks, but “TheAnthol-
ogist”isnot oneof them. Infact,
itsnarratorandonlyreal charac-
ter, Paul Chowder, has no love
life at all since his long-time
girlfriend, Roz, has left him.
Paul is a semi-pro poet who is
strugglingtowritetheintroduc-
tion to an anthology of rhymed
poetry he has edited. Paul’s
problem is that he’s a world-
class procrastinator and essen-
tially a passive sort of fellow,
and Roz, tiring of his excuses
and of supporting him indefi-
nitely, reluctantly calls it quits.
Afflicted with what appears
to be a terrible case of writer’s
block, it’s no wonder Paul pro-
crastinates; thepainofnot being
able to write that 40-page intro-
ductionhas unhingedhim. Like
all great procrastinators, he
avoids coping with his assign-
ment by finding other things to
do. He spends most of his time
rhapsodizing about poetry and
having imaginary encounters
with the great poets of the past.
As we listen to all this, we learn
a lot about Paul and also about
poetry, specifically the kind of
poetry he champions: the so-
called “ballad stanza,” with its
four-beat lines.
One of the intriguing aspects
of thisbookisthat Paul address-
es the reader directly. I almost
felt as if Paul were onthe phone
with me, since he describes
things he knows we can’t see
unless he tells us about them.
This use of direct address
makes for a curiously intimate
tone that establishes a relation-
shipbetweenPaul andthe read-
er.
Now here’s the thing: Paul
has many flaws, and I should
dislike this guy, but I don’t.
Maybe I shouldevendislike the
book, since nothing very much
happens in it, but instead, I
adore it. Paul is a veryengaging
character. He’s smart, maybe
brilliant. True, he’s neurotic, but
he’shonest about hisflaws, very
funny and rather sweet. How
can you not like a man who
says, “TruthsmellslikeChinese
food and sweat,” or, who, when
explaining what a poem looks
like, says, “Youcantell it’s a po-
em because it’s swimming in a
little gel pack of white space.”
Secondly, asyoucanseefrom
the above quotes, Paul and the
man who invented him take
suchjoyinlanguage. Here’s an-
other example: Paul tells us he
doesn’t think much of long po-
emsbecause“theycanall becut
downtoafewgreenstalksof as-
paragus amid the roughage.”
Thisbookissowell-writtenthat
I wantedtounderlinealmost ev-
ery sentence.
Baker’s attentiontodetail, his
wry and very funny tone, his
love of poetry and his ability to
make it, and Paul, come alive
for usmakethisbookatreasure.
Pictured on the cover of “The
Anthologist” is a ripe andbeau-
tiful plum. On the back cover,
theplumisslicedinhalf, andwe
see its succulent flesh. These il-
lustrations arevisual metaphors
for the delicious prose that
awaits you inside the book’s
cover.
Unless you’re a fellowpoetry
lover, you’re probably thinking
that this is not your kind of
book, but don’t be like your
mother. Remember how she
was such a skeptic and failed to
seewhyyouweresoattractedto
that skinny boy with the weak
chin or the plump girl with her
mopof unrulyredhair?Instead,
be open to the possibility that
this book, likethat homelydate,
might turn out to be the great
love of your life.

WAVERLY- In 2006, The
Kadampa Meditation Center,
in Glen Spey, N.Y., opened its
doors. The Meditation Center
is a Buddhist Temple inspired
by the vision of Geshe Kel-
sang Gyatso as part of the
International Temples Pro-
ject. “From the start, the goal
of the center was to try to
help people find peace in
themselves,” said Gen Sam-
ten Kelsang, a student of the
temple’s visionary.
This fall the Meditation
Center is running a series of
meditation classes in Waverly
based on the Buddhist teach-
ings of the temple.
Samten said that the med-
itation process is about
“learning to focus on a posi-
tive mindset, or a positive
experience.”
“Meditation isn’t an escape.
It is focusing on things in a
positive way in order to find
solutions to problems with a
peaceful mind.”
Samten explained that
“when we experience a prob-
lem, it is what happens inside
of us that makes us unhappy.
If we learn to approach with
a positive attitude we will be
able to solve problems in a
much more peaceful way.”
Samten said that when he
met Buddhism, about 30
years ago, it made so much
sense to him. What he wants
people to know is that these
meditations are “very practi-
cal, logical and user friendly.”
The main goal of teaching
these classes in Waverly is to
“give people skills to experi-
ence deep satisfying emotion
freedom,” said Samten.
The classes will mainly
consist of guided meditation
that is both practical and
explained, followed by dis-
cussion questions.
“It is always a relaxed in-
formal evening,” said Sam-
ten.
The first series of classes
started Aug. 18 and will run
until Sept. 22. The second
series starts Oct. 20 and will
run until Dec. 15. Classes
will be held on Thursdays at
the Waverly Community
House, 1115 North Abington
Road, Waverly. The cost is
$10 for the general public,
and $5 for seniors and stu-
dents.

Two have appeared in previous weeks. Save this to match up
with the final postcard next week.
Note the three installments of a poem, above:
“I send you the head
of a Dachshund to-day
Wait for the next part
Don’t throw this away.
Two funny feet towards you trot,
Dear Friend, oh please, forget me not.
The middle of the animal now I mail,
And soon as possible will add the tail."

ON THE TRAIL OF THE TAIL
POSTCARDS COURTESY JACK HIDDLESTONE
For Shannon Sennefelder,
38, a Wyoming Valley na-
tive currently residing in the
Poconos, giving up is not an
option. She is always look-
ing for a resolution, a way
out, she said. And she not
only employs this attitude in
her own life, but encourages
other women, through per-
sonal coaching, to reconsid-
er the way they look at their
own difficulties.
Sennefelder started White
Swans Consulting, a per-
sonal and professional
coaching service, in the
spring of 2010. Coaching is
relatively new to this area,
but has existed for many
years.
Her job, she said, is to
work with her clients to
break things
down to a
personal or
professional
development
area and cre-
ate an action
plan to get
through the
struggles that
may have previously seemed
impossible.
“More specifically, it’s
looking at how language
and beliefs hold us back
from getting what it is we
want in our lives, whatever
it is our dreams and aspira-
tions are,” she said.
She noted that people’s
language is often self-de-
feating. Someone may say,
“I’m not good enough,” or,
“I’m not smart enough, not
educated enough.”
Sennefelder said, “When
those limiting beliefs are
said out loud often enough,
over time we commit to
believing them. The shift
would occur when we can
focus on what’s possible
personally and professional-
ly.”
She does both personal
coaching, where she works
with individuals, and pro-
fessional coaching, where
she works with companies.
She said that a lot of times,
the problems she witnesses
come from miscommuni-
cation. People think that
they aren’t valued, and so
they don’t give of them-
selves 100 percent.
“It seems like a hundred
years ago that I was in a
relationship where I was not
valued,” she said. “And now
looking back, I can see how
that laid the track for a lot
in my life. And I help wom-
en to see their value and
worth in what it is they do,
and their contributions.”
Separate from her work
with White Swans Consult-
ing, Sennefelder said she
also volunteers for Marley’s
Mission, a local non-profit
organization that provides
free equine-based therapy to
children and families who
have experienced trauma.
She just finished a four-
part series there which fo-
cused on helping the moth-
ers to work through their
crisis. In the fall, she will
be starting a new series
which will be available to
both the mothers and fa-
thers.
Her passion for not only
her work with White Swans,
but also her volunteer work
with Marley’s Mission is
strong because of what she’s
been through herself.
The most difficult part of
her job, she said, can be
trying to get people to
grasp the value of a long-
term commitment. “I can’t
come in and fix people, but
I can offer you different
ways to look at how you
look at things,” she said.
“And that’s not an overnight
deal.”
She also said that what
she likes most about her job
is interacting with people,
and in doing that, she rec-
ognizes an importance in
focusing on their emotional
intelligence and the whole
person, rather than just their
IQ.
Sennefelder is married
with three children: 19-year-
old twin girls and an 11-
year-old boy. Her husband,
Keith, is a V.P. at Mountain-
top Construction, Inc. She
also works at The Universi-
ty of Scranton as assistant
to the dean of the business
school and attends there as
well as a non-traditional
student in liberal studies
with a concentration on
women’s studies.

Abington Heights School District has received six salad bars, one
for each school, through a grant initiated by First Lady Michelle
Obama. She encouraged school districts to promote healthy eating
by providing students greater access to vegetable and fruit intakes
at lunchtime.
The benefit of salad bars in schools extends beyond the healthy
foods consumed during the breakfast or lunch hour. Increased daily
access to a variety of fruits and vegetables provides a personal
experience about choices that can shape behavior far beyond the
school lunch line. Shown, seated from left: AHSD Food Serve em-
ployee Diane Waters and food service director Joanne Pesota.
Standing: Food service employees Carol Doty, Claire Lakatos, Dee
Clark, Pat Pensak and Diane Brunamonti.

opening on Sept. 2 at ArtsWorks
Art Gallery, 503 Lackawanna
Ave., Scranton, starting at 6 p.m.
The Interdependence Day
Hexagon Project showcases
hexagons created by junior high
and high school students both
regional and worldwide, for its
celebration in September.
Students are asked to address
issues of social justice, human
rights, civil society, democracy,
freedomof speech and religious
worship, women’s children’s
rights and the environment
through research, dialog and the
arts process in any medium.
The goals of the project are to
communicate a unifying theme
about interdependence through
the production of art that reflects
skill in various media, processes
and techniques and exhibit these
works in a public forum, to
demonstrate interdependence
by working collaboratively
through art-making and theater
activities during a public exhibi-
tion opening in order to concre-
tize the spirit of interdepend-
ence for attendees, to demon-
strate in an international forum
that young people are aware of
and can respond to the issues
and concepts surrounding inter-
dependence through artistic
expression by the creation of
virtual gallery and blogspot on
the Interdependence Day web-
site.

The Abington Heights, Lackawan-
na Trail and Lakeland high school
cross country teams all return a mul-
titude of starters. Abington Heights
The Abington Heights boys cross
country team returns seniors Sean
Burke and Chris Strein; and junior
Pat Haggerty. Head coach Rob Ah-
rens expects four sophomores: James
Sherman, Ryan Gilbert, Dalton La-
Coe and Greg Pascale to provide
some strong contributions this sea-
son. The boys team finished last
season with a 16-6 record and Burke
qualifying for states. Burke and
Strein have emerged as leaders on the
team, according to Ahrens.
The girls team welcomes back
starters senior Erika Sarno, junior
Taylor Ross and sophomores Erin
Jaeger and Jenn Burke. Ahrens said
he expects junior Kelsey O’Donnell
and sophomores Missy Burke and
Sarah Walsh to emerge as quality
contributors this year. The girls
squad lost Stephanie Lalos and Tessa
McMinn to graduation. Last year’s
team finished 19-3 and had Jaeger
advance to states as a freshman. Ah-
rens has noticed Ross and Sarno
providing leadership on the girls
side. He said he expects the trio of
Jaeger, Ross and Burke to be out
front for the girls team. Ahrens ex-
pects Elk Lake and Wallenpaupack
to provide their toughest completion.
Ahrens has been pleased with the
group’s effort throughout the first
few weeks of official practices.
“Practices have been going very
well so far,” he said. “The weather
has been cooperative and we have

This season the Abington
Heights, Lakeland and Lackawan-
na Trail high school golf teams
should all benefit from a roster
filled with returning players.
ABIGNTON HEIGHTS
After an undefeated regular sea-
son last year, the Abington Heights
golf team will look to repeat as
division champions during the
2011 season.
The Comets went 10-0 during
the regular season and finished
with a record of 13-1 losing only in
the league finals.
“Our goal this year is to take one
match at a time and do the things
we need to do to be successful,”
coach Mike Williams said. “If we
approach each individual match
with the same mindset good things
will happen.”
Abington lost Eric Meyer, Dave
Mecca and Matt Lewis from last
year’s team but retained Eric Mon-
tella, Dalton Coldwater, Alex Al-
tier, Jamie Egan, Will Swisher,
Sean Conway, Steve Silverman,
Anthony Sebastianelli and John
Comerford. Dave Harris, Terry
Hurst, Matt Heckman and Nick
Beckish also join the Comets ros-
ter this season.
“We are an extremely deep team
with strong senior leadership in
our co-captains, Eric Montella and
Dalton Coldwater,”Williams said.
“We also have three other players
who have a lot of varsity experi-
ence in Alex Altier, Jamie Egan
and Anthony Sebastianelli.”
Abington has had some early
success in two pre-season tourna-
ments. The Comets won both the
Jackman and Bolton Invitational.
Co-captains, Montella and Cold-
water, both had individual success
in the tournaments as Montella
won the Bolton Invitational and
Coldwater won the Jackman In-
vitational.
The Comets will face off against
Dunmore High School in their next
match Sept. 1 at Glen Oak Country
Club.
LAKELAND
The Lakeland Chiefs earned a
7-5-1 overall record and lost in the
first round of the playoffs last sea-
son but with five returning starters
the Chiefs will look to make a
playoff run during the 2011 season.
Fred Tolerico, Taylor Reeves,
Mike Thomas, Mike Brennan and
Greg Reeves return from last year’s
team while freshmen Jordan Hoin-
sky and R. J. Longstreet join the
2011 roster.
The Chiefs will gain more expe-
rience and work on course man-
agement this season, according to
head coach and Lakeland alumnus
Gary Phillips.

The season that was: The Abing-
ton Heights Girls tennis squad fin-
ished its 2010 season with an un-
defeated 12-0 record en route to a
victory for the team at the District
2-AAA playoffs.
With only two starting members
lost in 2011, however, there’s no
reason to think the team has lost
any of its steam.
Among those returning from last
year are Courtney Ostrowski. Os-
trowski is the defending District 2
Class AAA singles champion. She
also teamed with Morgan Fayoca-
vitz on a District 2-4 title and a
berth in the state tournament in
doubles.
Other returning starters include
Alexa Abdallah, Ali Pusateri, Mary
Chuff, Alyssa Laubham and Liz
Archibald.
An added weapon for head coach
Tom Lavelle is freshman Tyra Ab-
dallah, younger sister of last year’s
doubles silver medalist.
“She has been showing a lot of
potential in practices thus far,”
Lavelle said.
Surely a perk for Abington
Heights is its abundant competition
for starting spots; as Lavelle
stated, there are many talented
members. Though for many, this
would yield high-reaching expecta-
tions, their coach remains humble.
“We’re not starting from scratch
mentally speaking,” Lavelle said,
“but we treat it as a new season.
We try to set attainable goals and
take it one match at a time. Hope-
fully another successful season will
be the reward.”
The Lady Comets began their
season with a Abington Heights
began defense of its title with a
4-1 win at Wallenpaupack Aug. 22.
Ostrowski, Alexa Abdalla and
Tyra Abdalla lost just seven games
in six sets combined while sweep-
ing the singles points.
A karmic perspective, indeed.

A
fter graduating fromAbington Heights High
School in June, Kristi Polizzano is now
ready to take on the world, literally.
The Waverly resident is currently competing in
the 2011IPF (International Powerlifting Federation)
World Juniors and Sub-Juniors Championships
held in Moose Jaw, Canada. The event began Aug.
30 and will continue through Sept. 4. Polizzano
competed at worlds Aug. 23, and finished fourth
overall.
She earned the chance to compete in the event by
coming in first place in the 105 weight class at the
National Powerlifting Championship, held in
March in Corpus Christi, Texas, squatting 280
pounds, benching170 pounds and dead lifting 292
pounds.
Polizzano competed in the sub-junior division in
Texas, but because she turns 19 in November she is
required to lift in the junior division in Canada,
competing against girls 19 to 24 years old.
While the move in divisions could be a newchal-
lenge, the idea of competing against lifters who are
older than her did not seemto be on her mind the
week leading up to worlds as much as another
factor of the event.
“I’mreal nervous, because they changed the
weight class,” said Polizzano.
“Usually I’m105, but nowI have to make weight
for 103, which is my biggest stress. Everything else
is going smoothly and fine, it’s just cutting weight.”
Making the weight cut slightly more difficult
was that Polizzano had to be put off so she could
compete at The USAPowerlifting 2011RawNa-
tional Championship, held Aug.19 to 21at the
Hilton in Scranton.
She came in first at the event, which she said
helped her get ready for worlds.
“That was the plan, to compete at RawNationals
and use it as a tune-up meet basically to make sure
I was ready for the meet scene, because I haven’t
competed since April. It was good to be there,” said
Polizzano.
Also lifting at the RawNationals was Abington

aitie Notarianni and
Julie Hubbard appar-
ently were anxious to
get the season started.
The two former all-state
performers at Abington
Heights High School did not
wait long to put goals on the
scoreboard.
One week after Hubbard
was among
the first few
players to
score goals
in National
Collegiate Athletic Associ-
ation Division I women’s
soccer games around the
country this season, Nota-
rianni scored the first goal
in the entire nation in Divi-
sion I field hockey Friday.
At just 14 minutes past
noon and with only 12:04
expired on the official game
clock, Holy Cross had the
misfortune of leaving a
loose rebound in front of the
cage.
That is a mistake with
Notarianni in the circle.
With the speed and tenacity
that have allowed her to
become the active career
goal-scoring leader at Quin-
nipiac University, Nota-
rianni got there first to start
the scoring and send the
Bobcats on their way to a
6-2 victory.
“I was fortunate to get one
that quickly,” Notarianni
said. “I was in the right
place at the right time.”
The goal was the 14th of
Notarianni’s career. With 31
points, the senior forward
has moved up to 14th on the
school’s career points list.
Hubbard, on the other
hand, is just getting started
at the University of Connec-
ticut.
In her first official game
after transferring from Penn
State, where she briefly was
a starter early last season as
a sophomore, Hubbard car-
ried the offense for the
Huskies. Her goal 22:02
into the opener Aug. 19 gave
Connecticut the lead before
falling, 2-1, to Northeastern.
Hubbard received a pass
in close and put her ball-
handling skills to work,
dribbling around the goalie

comers have all shown good
potential for the upcoming
season.”
Ahrens is optimistic that
both the boys’ and girls’
teams are primed for a suc-
cessful year.
“This is my third year of
coaching cross country at
Abington Heights and I think
these will be the best teams I
have coached in my short
career,” he said. Both teams
will participate in the Cliff
Robbins Invitational in Dallas
Sept. 3 and open their season
with a dual meet Sept. 7.
Lackawanna Trail
The Lackawanna Trail boys
team returns seniors Peter
Lengel and Jamie Reese; ju-
niors Isaac Barbolish, Victor
Rosa, Devin Walsh, Zach
Noone and Sean Wetzel and
sophomore Devon Clarke.
Newcomers include senior
Andrew O’Brien and juniors
Lyle Sweppenheiser and An-
thony Urban. The team must
make up for the loss of Justin
Clarke, a state qualifier last
season, Aaron Kovalich and
Aaron Barbolish.
Head coach Keith Youtz
thinks the boys squad should
improve on last year’s results.
“We have a great group of
juniors,” Youtz said. “We’re
probably still one more year
away from being really com-
petitive with the top teams,
but we should finish the sea-
son above .500.”
Youtz said he thinks that
Clarke will be a key member
of the team despite his youth.
“Devon is running really
well and he will probably be
our number one runner in the
first race because he is good
on hills,” he said.
The boys’ team finished last
year with a 15-7 record.
The Lackawanna Trail girls
team returns all five of their
starters from last season, after
finishing 8-14. Seniors Emily
Scappatura and Alicia Breita,
along with juniors Kiernan
Dougherty, Morgan Curran
and Molly Seigle, round out
the Lady Lions roster.
Dougherty placed fourth in
districts in 2009, but suffered
an injury midway through last
season. Youtz said he thinks
the junior should return to
form this year.
“She has the best shot at
qualifying for states,” Youtz
said.
Youtz has also been pleased
with the way that Breita has
worked throughout the off-
season and into the start of
practices.
The boys and girls teams
both open their seasons Sept.7
at Susquehanna.
Lakeland
The boys team returns se-
niors Sean Durkin, Brandon
Carlo, David Scalzo, Tim Von
Storch, Remy Hosking and
Paul Szustakowski. Seniors
Zilong Zhao and Keith Valin-
ski along with junior Brandon
Newberry, sophomore Adam
Davis and freshman Mark
Arzie, the district champion at
junior varsity, will compete at
the varsity level this year.
The Chiefs finished last
season with an 11-11 record.
Head coach Jason Tochelli is
confident that his experienced
team should improve.
“Practices have been going
pretty well,” he said. “ Hope-
fully we will get over .500 and
have a winning season.”
The girls squad returns
seniors Alex Miller, who mis-
sed qualifying for states by
one spot at districts last year,
and Katie Polacek from last
year’s team that finished 3-16
a year ago. The Lady Chiefs
will have to compensate for
the loss of state qualifier
Shauna McGraw who gradu-
ated. The team welcomes
seniors Lauren Terpak and
Dana Prudente, who will also
play soccer, along with sopho-
more Dana Buskovitz.
Tochelli thinks the girls
team should show some im-
provement this season, espe-
cially if they can add some
depth.
“I think they can be better,”
he said. “We’re hoping to
recruit a few more girls once
school starts. ”
Both teams will open their
season at the Cliff Robbins
Invitational Sept.3 and will
travel to Susquehanna for
their first dual meet Sept. 7.

improved overall record and to
make a good run in the play-
offs.”
Phillips will look to his
experienced players to help
the Chiefs succeed.
“I expect my returning five
to step up and show the fresh-
men leadership and guidance
to help them perform to the
best of their abilities,” Phillips
said.
Lakeland will play Western
Wayne High School in its next
match Thursday at Western
Wayne’s home course.
LACKAWANNA TRAIL
In Harry Powell’s first three
years as head coach, Lacka-
wanna Trail earned a playoff
birth. In Powell’s fourth sea-
son the Lions will look to do
the same.
“Every year we have three
goals which include having a
winning season, winning the
Rock Creek Tournament and
making the playoffs,” Powell
said.
The Lions will have to ac-
complish those three goals
without David Boslough who
graduated last year. Boslough
earned a partial scholarship to
Indiana University of Penn-
sylvania where he will contin-
ue his golf career.
Despite the loss, the Lions
have three key returning play-
ers including junior Dalton
Mecke and co-captains, Don-
Michael Demarest and Matt
Lochen.
Sophomore Ricky Kordish
joined the Lions this season
and has already experienced
some early success. Kordish
split an individual match
against Forest City and won
his individual match against
Elk Lake. He also won both of
his better ball matches. Kor-
dish’s progression is similar to
Mecke’s contribution as a
sophomore last season.
“He’s a pleasant surprise,”
Powell said. “If he follows the
pattern of Dalton and contin-
ues doing what he does we
could have the season that
we’d like to have.”
Powell enters his fourth year
as the golf team’s head coach
but he’s been with the school
for 27.
“It’s like my second home,”

On Aug. 22, the Abington Heights
golf team won the Bolton Tourna-
ment at Penn State by 12 strokes.
Eric Montella won the individual
title with a 72. Members of the
team shown below are Alex Altier,
Dalton Coldwater, Eric Montella
and Anthony Sebastianelli
This year, both the Abington
Heights and Lackawanna Trail
girls volleyball teams are
looking for success in the
Lackawanna League.
Abington Heights
The Lady Comets finished
last season with an appearance
in the District 2 Class AAA
finals. In order to repeat their
success this season, the team
is going to have to get used to
a few changes.
Beginning this season, the
team will switch from the
Wyoming Valley Conference
to the Lackawanna League. In
addition to that change, Mi-
chael Labagh will also replace
Dan Phillips as the team’s
head coach this season.
Labagh has only been work-
ing with the team a few weeks,
but said so far he’s happy with
what he’s seen in practice.
“It’s been going really well.
They’re hard workers and
they’ve known each other a
long time, which is good for
team chemistry,” said Labagh.
“That’s important, because
teams that work better together
go further.”
While he said he’s been
impressed with a number of
girls on the team, he’ll be
looking to returning starters
outside hitters Elisia Cadman,
Molly Dietz and setter Josie
LaCoe to have a big impact
this season.
“I call them my alpha play-
ers,” said Labagh. “What I
mean by that is a player who
can read exactly what’s on the
other side of the court and
react accordingly.”
Lackawanna Trail
The Lackawanna Trail’s
girls volleyball ended the reg-
ular season with a record of
14-2, and an overall record of
17-4.
The team won the District II
Class A championship over
Mountain View, advancing to
regionals where they won one
game.
The Lady Lions lost four
players, three starters, to grad-
uation this year. While the
team will feel their absence,
they do have four starters re-
turning-Marissa Booth, Ash-
ley Chuck, Jennifer Lauzon
and Colleen Brace. Head
coach Deb Joyce feels that this
is a good core coming back to
the team that can help the
Lady Lions duplicate last
year’s success.
“The four girls we have
coming back are very intense,
competitive and dedicated to
the sport,” said Joyce.
Joyce said that the returning
starters have worked hard in
the off-season to improve their
game, playing in summer
leagues, and competing in
tournaments.
“I always encourage the
girls to pick up a volleyball
and work as much as possible
in the offseason, but these
girls did more on their own
than any other group I’ve ever
had,” said Joyce.
Joining the returning four,
will be Gabbie Bellanco, Gan-
nie Sunseri, Laura Cox and
Courtney Ross, who have all
shown a lot of talent during
practice.
Abington Heights and Lack-
awanna Trail will open the
season facing off against one
another, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. at
Lackawanna Trail High
School.

Heights powerlifting coach
Claude Welcome.
Welcome began working
with Polizzano during her ju-
nior year at Abington Heights
after she was introduced to
powerlifting by her father, Bob
Polizzano.
“My dad powerlifted in col-
lege, so he would always take
me to the gymand then he
decided to enter me in a local
competition, and I did well
(finishing in first place). I talk-
ed to Claude at that meet and
he told me to start coming to
practice, so I did,” said Polizza-
no.
After that first meet, Polizza-
no said she enjoyed the sport,
and would have probably con-
tinued participating in competi-
tions even if she never joined
the Comets, but credits the
teamwith helping her get to
the next level.
“I’d be into it, but I don’t
knowif I would have gone as
far. I don’t knowif I would
have gone to such high-ranking
meets,” said Polizzano.
“I was always naturally
strong, but then once Claude
showed me the techniques of
powerlifting, I was able to lift a
lot more weight, and he knows
howto play the game of power-
lifting, and when I’min com-
petition I always rely on himto
make sure that I’mstaying
close to my competitors.”
In addition to Welcome, who
has proven so valuable to Poliz-
zano’s success that he joined
her at worlds, she also credits
the teamand parents with her
success.
“It’s definitely an individual
sport, but when you’re compet-
ing and at practice, it’s one big
team, it’s like any other team
sport, everyone is supporting
each other,” said Polizzano.
“They’re very supportive, and
mentally they’ve been helping
me train. And, even though I’m
the only one going to Worlds,
everyone’s acting like it’s a
team’s success, because it has
been a teamsuccess.”
“Both my parents (Bob and
Vicki Polizzano) are really
supportive of it.”
Polizzano said she plans on
returning the support that she
received fromher teammates
this season by driving in from
Temple University, where she
will be attending in the fall, to
come and help out with the
team.
She also said she plans to
continue to work with Wel-
come as she continues her
powerlfiting career, lifting for
Temple’s team, and competing
in tournaments on her own.

“I am very excited for
Julie,” said UConn assistant
coach Zac Shaw. “She is a
special player who will con-
tinue to have a huge impact
for us the rest of the sea-
son.”
While seven of her team-
mates took one shot each,
Hubbard was at the center
of the Connecticut offense
with nine shots.
Hubbard had to miss
Thursday’s 3-0 win over
Colgate with an illness, and
since Sunday’s game has
been cancelled, she is hop-
ing to be back for the next
game Friday at Wake For-
est.
The preseason and open-
ers provided clear signs that
both Abington Heights
graduates could be in line
for big seasons.
Hubbard also assisted on
a goal in one of two Con-
necticut preseason wins and
has been a focal point of
the Huskies attack.
Notarianni scored two of
her team’s goals in a 3-0
victory over Fairfield in the
only exhibition game and
said she joins her fellow
seniors in being hungry to
make their last season spe-
cial.
“We were thinking about
that the other day,” Nota-
rianni said. “We didn’t real-
ize as freshmen what the
seniors are saying. Once
you are done, you want it
more than ever before.”
Notarianni said the se-
niors are responsible for
trying to remind their team-
mates all the little things
they wish they realized
could factor into a team’s
success. They are remind-
ing their teammates to be
well-rested and as ready as
possible for each game.
It helps when the seniors
show the way as Notarianni
did in producing the quick
start. She did not realize the
distinction of scoring the
first goal in the country
until it was pointed out to
her later Friday.
“I thought that was pretty
cool, but I didn’t think I
had my best game,” said
Notarianni, who is adjusting
to a slightly different role
within the forward line.
“It’s not the best game I
could have had, but it was
something to get started.”
Hubbard and Notarianni
each made sure getting
started did not take long.
