FACTORYVILLE - The Lackawanna
Trail School Board named Dr. Tania
Stoker to the position of Elementary
Center Principal and Harry Powell to the
position of district athletic director dur-
ing its monthly meeting Nov. 14.
Stoker, who has been the assistant
principal at the high school for the last
three and a half years, took over duties at
the elementary school Nov. 16.
“Dr. Stoker has been a great assistant
principal at the high school,” said Super-
intendent Matt Rakauskas. “She’s in her
fourth year, and during her time at the
high school, she’s done a tremendous
job. She’s been a wealth of knowledge;
she has strong credentials, and a real
passion for education.”
“She was a great choice. I’m thrilled
for her, and the district.”
A math teacher by trade, Stoker taught
at Lakeland High School and Keystone
College before coming to Lackawanna
Trail.
She said she feels her experience at the
high school and college level will prove
to be a valuable asset in her new posi-
tion.

SAVE, a project undertaken in1996 by Medical Society Alli-
ances and Auxiliaries to help victims of domestic violence, stands
for “Stop America’s Violence Everywhere.” In the hope of prevent-
ing violence-related tragedies, the American Medical Association
launched it in1995 as an extension of their Campaign against Fam-
ily Violence. In Pennsylvania, it is an ongoing venture between the
PAMedical Society and its Alliance with the Educational and
Scientific Trust, the nonprofit affiliate of the PAMedical Society.
They provided information kits to Pa. county Alliances/Auxilia-
ries.
In Lackawanna County in1996 there were already many orga-
nizations and resources available to victims of domestic violence,
but finding the appropriate ones in a crisis situation was daunting.
Therefore, a hotline card listing agencies was thought to be a great
benefit to citizens. The cards designed are wallet-sized and can be
carried in a wallet to be referred to in an emergency. The cards are
placed in hospitals, libraries and agencies represented. The card is
available in three languages: English, Spanish and Gujrati.

holiday tradition is returning to
the Abingtons again this year
with shopping, lights, live enter-
tainment, refreshments and other
treats the weekend of Nov. 25- 27.
The Abington Business and
Professional Association’s Home
for the Holidays Open House is
to take place in various shops and
locations throughout downtown
Clarks Summit and will offer
holiday fun and activities for all
ages. Participating shops will be
offering complimentary refresh-
ments and entry forms to win a
shopping spree during extended
shopping hours for the event.
According to Association Exec-
utive Director Laura Ancherani, a
Grand Holiday Ceremony will
begin Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. at the
clock tower with carols by the
“Summit Singers” from Summit
Baptist Bible Church’s Annual
Christmas on the Summit Con-
cert. She said it will also include
the closing ceremonies of the
Clarks Summit Centennial Cele-
bration, a presentation of the
coloring contest winner and the
lighting of the downtown for the
holidays. And, she said, Santa
Claus will also be making an
appearance on that day. Children
are encouraged to bring edible
ornaments for the animals. Santa
will watch as the winner of the
ABPA annual holiday coloring
contest “flips the switch” and
lights Clarks Summit for the holi-
days.
Association member Barry
Kaplan, of Everything Natural,
one of the participating shops,
said the Association has hosted
the Home for the Holidays Open
House for at least 30 years.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Kaplan said.
“The town and all the merchants
open their doors and welcome
people in.” He said Everything
Natural will be host live music, a
soup station, a cookie contest and
more. On Saturday, violinist
Mark Woodyatt will be at the
shop performing from noon to 2
p.m. Then on Sunday, it will host
keyboardist Carmen Scrimalli,
who will play holiday favorites
from1 - 3 p.m. More about Ev-
erything Natural’s cookie contest
can be found at everythingnat-
uralpa.com.
Kaplan said the event is all
about the community, having fun
and bringing holiday shopping to
the small hometown businesses.
“The ABPA has been there as a
support for the community at
large as well as the business com-
munity,” he said, and that is the
goal of this event.

CLARKS GREEN- The Nov.
14 meeting of the Clarks
Green Borough Council con-
cerned the budget for the
upcoming year as well as
changes in the Shade Tree
Committee and future billing
for the sewer. Council looked
over the tentative budget that
Melissa Jones, council secre-
tary had prepared. The final
budget will be voted on at
next month’s meeting.
Council also discussed the
matter of Pennsylvania Water
Company relinquishing the
water billing for Clarks Green
as of October 2012. Council
began discussing other meth-
ods of billing residents, such
as reverting back to the for-
mer method of billing, with
bills coming from the bor-
ough. Council agreed to thor-
oughly research the matter
before making a decision.
Council discussed Ordi-
nance 2-2011 concerning
changing the Shade Tree
Committee to a Shade Tree
Commission. Solicitor Al
Weinschenk explained that the
main difference would be that
as a commission, the group
would be more independent of
council for decisions. Council
person Jill Shanrock ex-
pressed concern that with
more authority, the Shade
Tree Committee would be
able to force residents to plant
trees. Council President, Ma-
rie King assured her that,
“We’ve never forced people to
take trees and we never will.”
Council also altered some
terminology in the ordinance
concerning technical terms for
certain types of tree pruning.
They voted to amend the ord-
nance to reflect the new
terms, advertise the ordinance
and to vote on it at the next
meeting in December.
Council also reminded resi-
dents to use the leaf bags for
their leaves, rather then regu-
lar trash bags.

RANSOMTWP. - At Wil-
liams Country Store, custom-
ers can top off their lunch and
perhaps breakfast with a slice
of Williams pie, if they are so
inclined. They should, howev-
er, be sure to get to the store
in Ransom Township early in
the morning because Williams
typically sell out of pies in as
few as two hours from the
time they are placed in the
cooler, according to Laurel
Williams, co-owner.
“As soon as we put the pies
out, within two hours in the
morning, they’re gone. People
from all over Scranton and
Dunmore that I work with (at
Clarks Summit State Hospital)
say, “Williams’ Pies…Wow!
They’re back,” said Williams,
who runs the country store
with her husband, Richard.
Richard Williams is carry-
ing on a family tradition his
father started in the mid-1940s
when he opened a bakery
whose name eventually be-
came Williams Pies because
“the pies sold so fast he (my
father) changed the name to
Williams Pies," said Richard
Williams.
Richard’s brother took over
the business when his father
passed away, but the business
eventually closed. Richard
Williams relocated to the
Lehigh Valley, where he sold
his pies, but he is back in
town now and anyone with a
hankering for a Williams pie
can find a selection of pies in
Ransom Township that in-
cludes: apple, apple crumb,
coconut cream, graham crack-
er cream, banana cream, choc-
olate cream, lemon meringue,
coconut custard and pumpkin.
Williams Country Store
opened in early Nov. at 2613
Milwaukee Rd., Clarks Sum-
mit, in Ransom Township.
The decor at Williams’
Country Store is “country”
with a homey and welcoming
atmosphere in their newly
renovated store. Customers
are greeted with the aroma of
the soup of the day simmering
on the stove or pies baking in
the oven.
“How many country stores
can you find in the area?” said
Richard Williams. “The idea
is if you walk into our store,
except for our coolers, you
step back into the
1800s…That’s what we strive
for,” added Williams.
The store is stocked with
grocery necessities and also
offers daily breakfast and
lunch specials, homemade
soups, sandwiches, hoagies
and baked goods including
pies.
“All of our pies are baked
here and sold at our store, as
well as other locations such as
Kutsop’s Market in Olyphant,
Duffy’s Coffee House in
Clarks Summit and at some
local restaurants.
“At the store (in Ransom
Township), we sell whole pies,
as well as slices and pie
squares,” said Richard Wil-
liams.
In the near future, custom-
ers will also have an opportu-
nity to order trays of prepared
foods such as lasagna, in addi-
tion to a taste of Syrian and
Lebanese cuisine with grape
leaves, Tabouleh and hum-
mus, which Laurel Williams,
whose heritage includes Syr-
ian ancestry, plans to intro-
duce to the menu.
Seating is available for cus-
tomers to enjoy take-out
items.
Store hours are Mon.
through Fri., 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.,
Sat., 8 a.m. -4 p.m. and Sun.,
8 a.m. - 2 p.m. For more in-
formation, call 570.586.6133.

DALTON - The Dalton
Business & Professional
Association’s annual Kick
off the Holidays Tree Light-
ing ceremony will take place
Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. at Memo-
rial Park in Dalton. Accord-
ing to Association president
Gail Rees, the event has
been a tradition in the area
for more than 30 years as a
partnership with the borough
to give back to the commu-
nity. There is no cost to at-
tend and light refreshments
will be served. “The event
has grown big time,” Rees
said. “We send flyers to the
Lackawanna Trail elemen-
tary school for the kids to
take home to their parents.
It’s also grown by word of
mouth. We’ve had people
from Scranton call about the
event last week.”
Rees expects the Lacka-
wanna Trail marching band
to perform Christmas Car-
ols.
“People seem to enjoy the
band,” Rees said. “It’s part
of the tradition, along with
Santa and the free refresh-
ments.”
According to Rees, chil-
dren are invited to bring
handmade ornaments to
hang on the tree.
“It’s kind of cute to see
because most of the deco-
rations are placed on the
bottom of the tree, unless
their parents pick them up,”
Rees said. “The kids can
look at the tree and say
‘That’s my ornament.’ It
adds an appeal that some
other tree lightings might
not have.”
Rees thinks the family
atmosphere that is created
during the event makes it a
special scene.
“It’s a chance to bring fam-
ilies together,” she said. “We
often see people who were
raised in the area come back
home. They look forward to
it and remember when they
were little kids and were
making the ornaments.”
The Dalton Fire Company
Ladies Auxiliary will hold a
craft fair Nov. 26. It’s an
event that has coincided with
the lighting ceremony for
many years.
“We always donate any
leftover refreshments for their
event,” Rees said.

FACTORYVILLE - When Steven
Swift, the FactoryvilleBorough Sewer
Operator saw a person who he recog-
nized as someone wanted in connection
with a recent burglary, he immediately
notified local authorities. And because
of his quick thinking and the action
taken, the person was arrested.
Swift said he noticed the individual
walking on College Avenue and knew
he was being sought by local author-
ities and called in the sighting imme-
diately. At the recent Factoryville
Borough meeting Swift was presented
with a Community Service Certif-
icate by Charles Wrobel President
and Co-Chair of the board, on behalf
of the board and the residents of
Factoryville.

SOUTHABINGTONTWP. -
At the Euro Café and Lounge
located at 1121Northern Blvd.,
customers will be greeted by
pirates and shark heads.
They will also find breakfast
favorites such as the owners’
take on Eggs Benedict and a
twist on French toast with their
signature Apple Pie French
Toast.
In a décor that lends a Carib-
bean theme, newowners Sa-
muel Moon, his wife, Brandy
and her brother, Brandon Bur-
dett intend to please customers
with an atmosphere that has a
distinctive flair.
“We want to create a place
with great food and atmosphere
and be sure that when people
come through the doors, they
will feel completely comfort-
able,” said Samuel Moon, who
has worked in the food service
industry for 15 years. The café is
scheduled to open in the coming
weeks at the site of the former
Euro Café.
“We’re going to add our own
flair,” said Moon. “My wife and
I for a very long time have
wanted to open a café. The
atmosphere will make a unique
atmosphere – warmand in-
viting. We want people to feel
you can get a cup of gourmet
coffee but you don’t have to
watch your children every sec-
ond of every minute. You won’t
have to worry as much.”
On the menu, the owners will
offer specialty coffees, gourmet
muffins and pastries, a breakfast
menu with signature items, as
well as a lunch and dinner menu
with signature sandwiches and a
variety of soups including lob-
ster bisque.
Moon said, “The problemis
when I go out to eat, sometimes
I feel I just ate 9,000 calories
and we want it (our food) to be
health conscious. We want to
use the top meats and breads,
good condiments and foods…
all geared toward a great experi-
ence. We don’t want to gear our
foods to the calorie counters but
the health conscious,” said
Moon.
He added, “My wife and I
have always wanted to own a
café style business. I’ve done a
lot of traveling and I’ve experi-
enced really good cups of coffee
and I’d like to bring those to this
area. Each and every itemis
going to have its own person-
ality and be the best I might
have experienced in Manhattan,
in Florida or Washington,
D.C…I want people to remem-
ber us for the quality and leave
that lasting impression.”
The owners plan a soft open-
ing initially Dec. 1with a sched-
uled Grand Opening later in the
month.
The Moons are the parents of
five children and in Brandy
Moon’s words, “It’s a nice fam-
ily business. That’s what we are
aiming for…We want you to
come in here if you have a fam-
ily.”
Café hours will be Mon. to
Sat., 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sun., 9
a.m. - 6 p.m.

partment of Public Works

and are also repairing wa-
ter drainage on Mile

Later in the meeting,
Salva read bids from local

which one will receive the
department’s old truck.
The first bid he read was

His bid was $6,152. The
second bid was SULLI

Pa. with a bid of $5,055.
The next bid was from
DeNaples Auto Parts from
Dunmore. DeNaples’ bid
was $3,600. The next bid
was from Clarks Summit’s
Brown Masonry, at
$10,250. The final bid of
$6,858 was from Grace
Quality Used Cars, Inc.
from Morrisville.
Board member Lorraine
Daniels made a motion to
accept these bids. Board
member Susan Davidson
seconded the motion. The
board all agreed.
Board member Bill
Montgomery made a mo-
tion to accept the highest
bidder. The board agreed.
“Brown Masonry has won
the red truck,” said Salva.
In other business, Salva
mentioned that he re-
ceived a rental agreement
from the Dalton Fire
Company. Daniels sug-
gested tabling the motion
to decide whether or not
to keep the rental agree-
ment with the Dalton Fire

The board also heard from
Abington Heights High School
student Chloe Maloney, who is
putting on “Say No to Bullying
&Yes to Love,” a talent show, at
the Waverly Community House,
located at 1115 North Abington
Rd., Waverly, Dec. 9 from7 - 9
p.m.
The junior explained that she
requested permission to pro-
mote the showwith an announ-
cement over the loud speaker
during the school day, but was
denied. She was told the reason
she was denied was because she
already had flyers hanging in the
board for four years, said he
joined the board originally out
of a feeling of “fiscal responsib-
ility.” After working with the
board for some time, he knows
that the current members share
his concerns.
“This board is true stewards
of the taxpayers’ money, with
many challenges, which are out
of the control of the school
board. Challenges like unfunded
mandates handed down by both
federal and state which handcuff
school districts,” said Small.
“This board takes on these
challenges, and many others,
with both educational outcome
and fiscal responsibility in
mind.”
Small will be replaced on the
board by Greg Madensky, who
won the Region 3 seat.
CLARKSSUMMIT- The
Abington Heights School Board
approved a motion that will limit
the amount the district can raise
the property tax to1.7 percent
for the 2012-13 budget during its
meeting Nov. 16.
The1.7 percent increase is the
maximumamount the state
index will allowthe district to
raise the property tax without
sending the budget into referen-
dumor requiring the district to
apply for exception.
If the board were interested in
pursuing either of those options,
the district would have needed a
preliminary budget ready by
January. By voting on the limit,
the preliminary budget will not
be needed at that time.
Superintendent Michael Ma-
hon also explained that the ap-
proval of the motion was not a
guarantee that taxes will go up
1.7 percent, it just sets a maxi-
mumamount the board can
potentially raise taxes if it feel it
is necessary.
In other news, the board bid
farewell to members Ken Heron
and Robert Small, who will be
stepping down fromtheir posi-
tions.
During his parting remarks to
the board, Heron, who served on
the school board for eight years,
talked about his pride over the
staff that has been assembled
since he joined.
“What we have tried to do
during my tenure, and I’msure
you’ll continue to do it, is try to
hire the best people,” said Her-
on.
“The most rewarding part of
this job is to see the talented
teachers that come into our
system.”
Heron will be replaced by
Michael Fleming, who was
elected Nov. 8 to one of the two
available at-large seats on the
board. The other seat was won
by incumbent Frank Santoriello.
Fleming said he began attend-
ing board meetings a few
months ago to prepare in case he
won, and is looking forward to
getting started.
“I’ve got a lot to learn,” said
Fleming.
“There will be a bit of a learn-
ing curve, but hopefully I’ll be
able to get up to speed quickly,
and start contributing.”
Small, who served on the
school to promote the show. She
asked the board to overturn the
decision and let her make the
announcement.
The board said they were
unwilling to overturn the deci-
sion, but offered Maloney sever-
al suggestions on howto pro-
mote the show.
Admission for “Say No to
Bullying &Say Yes to Love” is
$5 for adults and $3 for students
and children. For more informa-
tion on the event, visit http://

St. John’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Mayfield hosted its annual
Country Christmas Bazaar at St. John’s Center from Nov. 11-13. The center
had two floors of vendors selling gifts and treats for the holidays. St. John’s
Bookstore sold matrushka dolls and Baba’s Basement sold a variety of
items. Volunteers served Polish foods including pierogies and haluski and
ran the St. John’s Chinese Auction, which sold raffle tickets for baskets.

need in order to be good high
school students,” said Stocker.
She added that she’s excited
about working with the staff.
Powell, an English teacher
at the high school, is the
school’s current golf coach
and former athletic director.
“He’s that faculty member
who is just immersed in ath-
letics,” said Rakauskas.
“He was Mr. (Jeff) Grego-
ry’s right-hand man. He didn’t
have an official title, but he
helped him out. He knows the
job, he has the experi-
ence…he’s the perfect fit.”
Stoker and Powell are tak-
ing over the jobs formerly
held by Jeff Gregory, who
filed a letter of resignation
Oct. 21.
The school board approved
a separation agreement be-
tween the district and Gregory
in early October before the
letter was filed, with Gregory
using sick leave for the re-
mainder of the school year.
Rakauskas praised the
teachers in the district for
their attitude during the period
between Gregory’s departure
and now.
“Everyone has really helped
keep Lackawanna Trail fo-
cused, and they all really de-
serve a pat on the back,” said
Rakauskas.
“All of the teachers were so
patient and professional dur-
ing this uncertain time, mak-
ing us all proud to say we’re
part of Lackawanna Trail.”
Following Gregory’s leave,
Rakauskas, high school Prin-
cipal John Rushefski, Stoker
and Curriculum Director Jan-
ice Joyce took over Gregory’s
duties at the elementary center
on a rotating basis.
Rakauskas said he imagines
the district will do something
similar to help out Rushefski,
who will be taking on some
extra duties created at the high
school due to the vacant as-
sistant principal position.
The superintendent ex-
plained the district plans to
fill the position eventually,
although probably not until
the 2012-13 school year.

worst seasons, but everyone had
a good time. We gave everybo-
dy an opportunity to play in-
doors – at least for most age
groups, “ Rusak said.
Rusak acknowledged the
outdoor fields they utilize and
help to maintain including the
South Abington Township field
and an arrangement the league
has with Baptist Bible College.
But, due to the cold and wet
season this year, the league felt
it appropriate to utilize the Riv-
erfront Sports Complex in
Scranton. “We thought it only
fair to go indoors and give all
the kids a chance to play,” Rusak
added.
Rusak said board members
do a lot with other activities in
the community. “I started off
coaching, and my son played,
and I volunteered and was slow-
ly pulled into the league.”
As far as her presidential
goals, Rusak said, “There’s a lot
that needs to be done, and I’m
super excited. I’ma woman
with young kids and can prob-
ably pull in other moms.” Rusak
feels strongly about the sport.
She said she loved playing it
with her kids and with any-
body’s kids. In fact, she played
in high school and in graduate
school on the club teamwhere
she actually traveled. “I’mfrom
Florida. The kids here don’t
play as much as the kids down
there,” Rusak said. She also said
she’d like to see the children stay
active year round to keep up
their endurance. “It’s really
important for kids to have fun,”
Rusak enthused.
Rusak has been part of the
Abington Youth Soccer League
for three years and just finished
her first year as president. She
thought their motto appropriate:
“For almost 40 years, Abington
Youth Soccer League has en-
couraged children to play soccer
so they could learn about athlet-
ics, friendly competition, sports-
manship and exercise. We offer
both recreational soccer and
more competitive travel soccer.
Starting with the U5 division
your child will be taught the
fundamentals of soccer, team-
work and sportsmanship. We
strive to encourage all children
to learn and have fun. Soccer is
a wonderful sport for kids of all
ages, and we encourage every-
one to play.”
She also used to coach a girls
recreational teamin Dunmore.
Rusak worked as a bio-analyt-
ical chemist at Los Alamos
NewMexico National Lab-
oratory. She also served as a
registered nurse at Moses Taylor
in Scranton. NowRusak is a
stay-at-momwho volunteers her
time to causes and organizations
about which she feels strongly.
Rusak is married to Dr. David
Rusak a professor of chemistry
at The University of Scranton.
She has three sons: Henry, 11,
Jacob, 8 and Cooper, 4.
Rusak resides in Dalton.

To be a part of the Clarks
Summit Centennial Celebration
was for the many volunteers
who gave their time, a yearlong
commitment. It was also a trip
back in time and an opportunity
to remember, renewfriendships
and revisit the past. Centennial
committee members, Linda
Young, Liana Smith and Phyllis
Ruzbarsky share their most
memorable moments fromthe
Centennial.
Linda Young – Clarks Sum-
mit Centennial Committee
Member/Fundraising Commit-
tee, Chair of the “Forever
Young” Fishing Derby and
Co-Chair of the Family Fun
Day.
“Memories - there are so
many. I was fondly reminded of
Clarks Summit, its businesses
and its citizens, when I was a
kid growing up in the center of
Clarks Summit in the1950s and
60s. But I also enjoyed working
with people I used to know,
renewing old acquaintances and
making newfriends. Serving on
the committee was personally
well worth the time and effort.”
She added, “My vision for
Clarks Summit would include
many more community events
like the Art Walk and the Fam-
ily Fun Day and Forever Young
Kids’ Fishing Derby, as well as
newevents that will bring our
community closer together. And
I would love to see all empty
stores occupied with business
booming.”
Liana Smith – Centennial
Committee Member/ Respon-
sible for ordering Centennial
clothing and arranging their sale
at all venues.
Liana Smith said, “My most
memorable centennial moment
would have to be when Charlie
Kumpas presented his slide
presentation of Clarks Summit
as it was 100 years ago. All of
those pictures of Clarks Summit
with just dirt roads, the amuse-
ment park at the top of Summit
Hill, the railroad as it used to be
running through Clarks Sum-
mit, and of course the Depot
railroad station in all its glory,
plus the trolley rails running
alongside of what’s nowthe
church rectory, were so very
interesting. My hope is that
many more residents of Clarks
Summit and the surrounding
towns will see the presentation
when Charlie presents it again
on Saturday the 26th.”
Phyllis Ruzbarsky – Chair,
Our Lady of the Snows’ 100th
Birthday Celebration/Centen-
nial Committee Member
“I participated in a lot of the
(Centennial) events and one of
things I did was to be the histo-
rian for Our Lady of the Snows’
church when they had their
church tour. I worked on that
with Dennis Martin…My fa-
vorite event was Centennial
Day. It brought everything to-
gether. They (the committee)
had something for kids and they
had something for adults. They
blocked off Depot St. and put
the venue back there. It turned
out to be a nice day because
August was a mess (the weath-
er) but Saturday, the day of the
event, turned out to be beautiful.
They had tents, tables and chairs
and they had music all day long.
They had food and merchant
vendors, the racing cars for the
kids, the historic memorabilia
inside and outside of the bor-
ough building, horses from
Marley’s Mission…so they had
something for everyone…It was
nice and relaxing fun day. I
think it brought everything
together. Even if you had mis-
sed everything (Centennial
events), if you went that day,
you could see what it was all
about…Dennis Martin did a
fabulous job and the people on
the committee were very dedi-
cated. It was a lot of work and
he (Martin) needs to be ap-
plauded for all the work he
did.”
Regarding her vision for
Clarks Summit, Ruzbarsky
added, “One of the things I
really liked was to see the
enthusiasmof the people here.
The merchants are really try-
ing to keep this place going
and to make it (Clarks Sum-
mit) a place of interest for
everyone. They are really
working hard. We tend to
drive through Clarks Summit
and not really stop enough to
go through the vendors and
the stores that are there. I think
with all of the publicity you
are giving everything, maybe
people will stop a little more.
We should keep it (Clarks
Summit) vital and vibrant.”

then asked a friend visiting
fromLong Island, N.Y. to sign
it and embroidered the signa-
ture into the fabric.
Fromthere, the project took
off. The tablecloth is now
filled with hundreds signa-
tures, notes and doodles of old
and newfriends, each embroi-
dered on as a special memory
of that person and their visit to
the Palazzi home.
The story of this tradition,
however, is no longer a secret
tucked away along with the
tablecloth, waiting to be un-
folded for newguests to ap-
preciate. Vivian’s daughter
Lynne Palazzi, 43, a freelance
writer and editor in Irvington,
N.Y., traced the history of the
project in an article which
appears in the November 2011
issue of the Country Living

gorgeous, colorful thing, she’s
put countless hours of pains-
taking work into it, there are
so many rich stories attached
to it, and she keeps it folded
up in a handbag,” Lynne Pa-
lazzi said via e-mail. “I
thought it was high time for
the world to see it.”
So, she said, she brought the
story to Sarah Gray Miller,
Editor-in-Chief at Country
Living, who she had worked
closely with at a previous job,
and knewshe could trust. “It’s
such a personal story, I had to
take it to someone who would
take care of it and would keep
me involved in the editing
process,” Lynne said. “And
that is what happened.”
She said she knewthe story
would be a perfect fit for
Country Living, as the maga-
zine focuses on both crafting
and entertaining.
The telling of the story,
however, didn’t stop there. It
was picked up November 3 by
www.tcpalm.com, a local
news source in Vivian Palaz-
zi’s current hometown, and
Nov. 7 by the Huffington Post
(www.huffingtonpost.com),
an Internet newspaper.
Vivian Palazzi said she is
surprised at all the attention
her tablecloth is getting, and
when people ask her where
the idea came from, she
doesn’t knowwhat to tell
them.
“I really don’t knowwhere I
got the idea, because I never
sawit anywhere,” she said.
She simply remembered buy-
ing the materials and starting
the project.
She said the real story and
its true value is not in the
tablecloth itself, but the stories
and memories behind it.
“The thing that means the
most to me,” she said, “has got
to be the names lovingly
placed on the tablecloth by
friends who have passed away
and are a constant reminder of
times spent together.”
Vivian Palazzi said she is
especially proud of her moth-
er’s message on the tablecloth
as it is the only record she has
of her handwriting. The Coun-
try Living article also ex-
plained howVivian trans-
ferred her late father’s signa-
ture fromher third grade re-
port card onto the tablecloth .
She said she is also glad to
have the signatures of her
husband’s family members
fromItaly, who signed in their
native language. “It was their
only visit and we will probably
never see themagain, but it
was nice when they were
here,” she said.
Her daughter also men-
tioned this visit fromher Ital-
ian relatives as one of her
favorite memories fromthe
tablecloth. “I have such a vivid
memory of sitting with these
cousins in our dining room,
my sister communicating with
themin a mix of Spanish and
Italian,” she said. “I was fasci-
nated by howexotic they
seemed. Everything about
them—their clothes, shoes,
hairstyles—was so different
and European.”
Many friends of the Palazzis
who have signed the tablecloth
still live in the Clarks Summit
area and can recall pleasant
memories of times spent with
the family. Jack and Nancy
Hiddlestone said when they
sawLynne Palazzi’s article in
Country Living they were
excited to locate their signa-
tures in one of the featured
photos of the tablecloth.
Jo Ann Brunori said she
remembers dinner at the Pa-
lazzi home as “not only deli-
cious, but with Vivian there,
there were lots of stories, lots
of laughter...lots of good
times.” She said she knewthe
family fromthe community
and fromchurch and de-
scribed Vivian Palazzi’s per-
sonality as upbeat, gregarious,
very bright and cordial. She
said she is a “very lovely per-
son” and a “wonderful moth-
er.”
Vivian’s daughters agreed.
“I was always proud of the
fact that I didn’t have a lazy
mom,” Lynne Palazzi said.
“She never laid on the couch
watching soaps. She was al-
ways active and busy either
with housekeeping chores or
with crafty hobbies that chan-
neled her creative energy.”
Christine Gilroy, another
family friend still residing in
the Clarks Summit area, said
Vivian Palazzi was like a sec-
ond mother to her when she
was growing up, as Christine
was good friends with Nancy
Clark, another of Vivian’s
daughters.
“She probably fed me as
many meals as my mother
did,” Gilroy said. She de-
scribed meals at the Palazzi
home as “Just wonderful. Lots
of conversation.”
Gilroy said one of her favor-
ite childhood memories with
the Palazzis is fromwhat she
and Nancy Clark called “the
little house.” The small struc-
ture, possibly an old chicken
coop, stood on a neighbor’s
property and the girls were
given permission, Gilroy said,
to fix it up into a little play-
house, complete with curtains
and “just wide enough for two
sleeping bags.”
She said her childhood was
always “filled with Palazzis,”
but it wasn’t until about two
months before Vivian moved
to Florida in 2004, that Chris-
tine Gilroy and her family
signed the tablecloth.
Vivian Palazzi said there is
not much roomleft on the
tablecloth, but newsignatures
and messages continue to be
added as she makes new
friends in Florida.
Daughter Lynne said she
remembered a time about 15
years ago when her mother
was stitching the latest entries
on the tablecloth and asked,
“Do you think that any of you
girls will want this when I
die?”
Lynne Palazzi said she was
stunned by the matter-of-fact
question and answered, “Uh,
yeah Mom. I think we’ll all
want it.”
“She is still not really im-
pressed with herself for all the
time and energy she has spent
creating this fabulous heir-
loom,” Lynne said.
Daughter Nancy Clark said
of the tablecloth, “It was just a
great novelty tradition that she
started and it has always made
people laugh and feel honored
to have their name put on
there.” She said it means even
more to her now, and she is
touched by all the memories it
contains of people who have
passed away.
Lynne Palazzi said one
thing that recently occurred to
her about the tablecloth is its
timeless quality.
“Since my momstarted it,”
she said, “there have been six
different presidents in the
White House, the Berlin Wall
fell, 9/11happened, the In-
ternet was invented, the list
goes on. But none of that is
reflected on the tablecloth.
There are no snappy TVor
movie catchphrases written on
it, no political statements. If
you don’t knowthat mom’s
been working on it since 1979,
or that certain people who’ve
signed it have passed away,
you’d have no way of knowing
howold or newit is. Even the
fact that it’s plain white with a
simple lace border makes it a
classic, there’s no color or
floral print that ties it to any
particular era.”

It is hard to believe that
Thanksgiving is already upon
us. This year we have so
much to be thankful for- from
family to friends to an amaz-
ing community that can rise
above anything. From all of
us at the Dietrich, we would
like to say thank you for your
support over the past couple
of months. You are tremen-
dous.
We hope you and yours will
have time to relax and join us
during the Thanksgiving holi-
day for some Hollywood fair
and delicious popcorn. We
have a great selection for you
including “The Twilight Saga:
Breaking Dawn – Part 1,”
“Happy Feet Two,” “Arthur
Christmas” and “The Mup-
pets.”
Last Thursday night it was
great to see the theater com-
pletely filled for the midnight
opening of “Breaking Dawn-
Part 1,” our first sell-out since
the flood. So many mothers
and daughters attended the
film together. It was wonder-
ful to see their mutual excite-
ment about a movie. And it
looks like some of our other
movies for the holiday can
cross generations. I am really
looking forward to catching
“The Muppets.” I have great
memories of “The Muppet
Show” and can’t wait to see a
new generation enjoy them.
My favorite characters from
the show were Statler and
Waldorf. You know, those
grouchy old gents who heck-
led everyone from their balco-
ny seats. I imagine a lot of
parents and children will
come out of the movie com-
paring their favorite Muppet
characters.
In addition to fun films, the
Dietrich will be offering a
variety of holiday events for
all ages over the next month.
We will kickoff these offer-
ings during Tunkhannock’s
Christmas in Our Hometown.
Join us for free showings of
Emmet Otter’s Jugband
Christmas on Friday and Sat-
urday, Dec. 2 and 3 at 5:30
p.m. and 7 p.m. Created by
Jim Henson, this favorite
Christmas movie is about a
poor otter family who risks
everything for a chance to
win the cash prize of a talent
contest for Christmas. This
movie is presented in-part by
the Jim Henson Legacy Foun-
dation and sponsored by Ca-
bot Oil and Gas Corporation.
Admission is free.
We will also be hosting a
Homemade Cookie Walk to
Benefit the Dietrich Theater
during Christmas in Our
Hometown. For $5 you will
be able to fill a container of
various Christmas cookies
that you select. Not only will
you walk away with a deli-
cious treat, but you will be
supporting the Dietrich and

P
hotographer Gary Cawood is pre-
paring to unveil a body of pho-
tographs he began in 2006 entitled
“Excavation.”
“Since the natural landscape is consid-
ered expendable in our culture, the sur-
face scars we create seemed like an in-
triguing subject to explore. I selected
sites that were excavated long ago, and at
first I focused on the surprising forms
and colors created by erosion. Soon I
began adding throwaways to the composi-
tions. Like the land, much of the stuff we
buy is considered disposable and makes it
way to sites like these. The photographs
utilize the scarred landscape as a context
for the stuff we abandon,” said Cawood.
Camerawork, Scranton’s only photog-
raphy gallery, located in the Marquis Gallery at
515 Center Street, Scranton, presents the show of
photographs Dec. 2 –Jan. 31. An opening recep-
tion will be Dec. 2, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
“Essentially I’m doing still life, using the mud,
rocks and ash as part of the setup. This staged
approach, focusing on relatively small details,
tends to emphasize formal order, and indeed I
delight in the contemplative aspect of view cam-
era work. But I also consciously mimic the hap-
hazard look of the discarded, which can in turn
be ordered by the process of seeing photograph-
ically. Art gives us the opportunity to imagine
order where none is apparent,” he added.
“I’m especially interested in the or-
der that the forces of nature impose on
our wastefulness. Rust and rot. Mold
and mildew. Given enough time, even
the most synthetic materials will at
least look like something from the
earth. My compositions evolve. The
sun, wind and rain can significantly
change the effect in only a few months.
The process creates surprises—good
and bad—as I photograph the various
stages of deterioration. My intent is to
find the one moment that best repre-
sents each composition.”
He received a Bachelor of Architec-
ture degree from Auburn University in
1970, and after service as a VISTA in
the Pittsburgh Architect’s Workshop,
began a serious study of photography in 1972.
Cawood’s photographs have been widely exhib-
ited throughout the United States, including
more than 60 solos and approximately 100 two-
person and group shows. He has received Visual
Artist Fellowships from the National Endowment
for the Arts, the Mid-America Arts Alliance and
the Arkansas Arts Council. His work is included
in numerous public collections, including the
Smithsonian National Museum of American Art,
Baltimore Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of
Art, the Library of Congress the Amon Carter
Museum and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

ENTRANCE EXAM Saturday, December 3rd, Call to Register
With the celebration of Thanksgiving coming to a
close, preparations for the December holidays will
begin in earnest.
Stop at the Abington Community Library for
books that help with ideas for holiday gift-giving,
meals and family celebrations.
One of the newest additions for the Christmas ho-
liday that is new on the shelf is “Christmas with
Southern Living 2011.”
The editors have divided the book’s contents into
four parts. In “Entertain,” there are 100 kitchen-test-
ed recipes and complete menus for a Dixie brunch,
a portable cold-weather picnic, and a vintage South-
ern holiday. In “Decorate,” there is inspiration for
using flea market finds, on decorating mantels and
12 ways to make homes festive. “Savor” is a recipe
collection for cocktail parties, unique entrees, bite-
size desserts, pancake breakfasts, and slow cooker
surprises. The final section, “Share,” includes in-
structions, with pictures, for ten homespun crafts as
well as how to prepare handcrafted confections, with
ideas for festive and unusual packaging.
New Additions
“The Ballad of Tom Dooley,” by Sharyn
McCrumb. The famous folk ballad, a haunting tale
of murder and illicit love, is based on actual events
that took place in Wilkes County, North Carolina in
the aftermath of the Civil War. Novelist McCrumb
visited the actual sites, studied the legal evidence,
and concluded that the traditional story did not
make sense, eventually uncovering a missing piece
of the story. In her newest “Ballad Novel,” she pre-
sents a fictional re-telling of the historical account
and identifies the real culprit in the murder of
young Laura Foster.
“Snow in Summer,” by Jane Yolen. Here is a new
version of the Snow White tale for young readers
(age 9 – 12). Summer’s life in the West Virginia
mountains turns from a fairy tale into a nightmare
when her widowed father marries a woman who
brings poisons and a magical world into the young
girl’s life. Set during the early 20th century, the tale
is filled with magic, intrigue and true love.
“Assassin of Secrets,” by Q. R. Markham. Jonathan
Chase is the CIA’s top field agent. His new target:
the Zero Directorate, rogue assassins who have em-
barked on a campaign to systematically interrogate
and kill seasoned secret agents across the globe. To
do so, they have set an elaborate trap endangering
Chase, who must risk his most valuable asset to de-
feat them.
“Wonderstruck,” by Brian Selznick. Young readers
(age 9 – 12 ) will embark on an awe-inspiring jour-
ney in this new book by the author of “The Inven-
tion of Hugo Cabret.” Two independent stories, set
50 years apart, weave back and forth. Ben’s story is
told in words, Rose’s in pictures, as the two children
set out alone on their separate desperate quests to
find what they are missing: Ben longs for the father
he has never known and Rose dreams of a myste-
rious actress.
Closed for the Holidays
The library will be closed Thursday, Nov. 24 in
observance of thanksgiving.

A
fter proving to be a
crowd pleaser last
holiday season, “Irv-
ing Berlin’s White Christ-
mas” will return to the
Music Box Dinner Play-
house starting Nov 26.
The theater company
was the first in the area to
stage the play, and audi-
ences came out in droves
to see the production
based on the 1954 film.
“We were completely
sold out,” said director
Debbie Zehner. “It was
probably the best selling
show we’ve had in the last
10 years. It was sold out
before we opened. There
were waiting lists every
night.”
Traditionally, the Music
Box rotates its Christmas
show year to year, but due
to the amount of attention
and positive feedback
“White Christmas” re-
ceived, they decided to
make an exception and
bring the show back again
this season.
“It was decided immedi-
ately after,” said Zehner.
“I had friends who I
couldn’t get tickets for. So
we thought since it was so
popular we’d do it again,
and give anyone who
didn’t get a chance to see
it an opportunity.”
Adapted for the stage by
Dave Ives and Paul Blake,
Zehner had seen the play
when it was on Broadway
and recommended the Mu-
sic Box stage it last year
when the rights became
available.
She said the piece stays
fairly close to the source
material, telling the story
of World War II veterans
Bob Wallace and Phil Da-
vis, who have put together
a successful song and
dance act after the war.
With romance in mind,
the two follow a duo of
beautiful singing sisters to
their Christmas show in an
inn in Vermont, which is
owned by Bob and Phil’s
former commander.
Unfortunately for the
general, his inn is not do-
ing so well because Ver-
mont is experiencing an
unusually warm winter
with no snow.
To help out, the boys
gather all of their army
buddies to come to the
inn.
“They took a few liber-
ties, but it pretty much
follows the movie,” said
Zehner.
One of the liberties Ives
and Blake took was chang-
ing the age of the charac-
ter Susan from a teenager,
to a child.
The change created the
challenge for Zehner to try
and find a young actress
who was up to the task of
playing a part that large.
Like last year, that ac-
tress turned out to be
Wyoming resident Abigail
Barhight.
Barhight is one of sever-
al members of last year’s
cast who is returning to
production this year, giv-
ing the show what Zehner
described as a nice mix of
new and old performers.
Despite playing the role
last year, Barhight still
had to audition for the
part this year.
“She had to audition
against some other little
girls, but they couldn’t
hold a candle to her,” said
Zehner.
“I didn’t know her last
year. She auditioned with,
I think, 20 other girls and
took it away from every-
one. She sings, she’s a
wonderful little actress,
and a delightful kid to
work with. She’s a talented
little girl, a real standout.”
In addition to the age of
Susan, another change is
one Zehner feels audiences
will enjoy, and that’s the
addition of several Irving
Berlin songs not featured
in the film.
She said the addition of
the songs adds to the holi-
day feel she feels the
show gives off.
“It’s really a lovely play
that should make you feel
good,” said Zehner.
Zehner added that, like
last year, tickets are sell-
ing fast, and those wishing
to attend should make res-
ervations soon.
The Music Box Dinner
Playhouse is located at
196 Hughes St, Swoyers-
ville.

Russo, 1993 graduate of
Wilkes University, will per-
form a comedy show entitled
“Laugh Til You Cry,” Dec. 8 in
the ballroom of the Henry
Student Union building at 7:30
p.m.
Russo graduated in 1993
with a bachelor’s degree in
Communications Studies. He
was involved in wrestling
throughout high school and
college and received a scholar-
ship for wrestling to attend
Wilkes.
He is a regular in the Boston
comedy scene and has per-
formed in Las Vegas and in
New York and Los Angeles.
He has also appeared on Com-
edy Central, NBC’s Today
Show and NESN’s Dirty Wa-
ter segments.
Opening for Russo is Terri
Granahan, a 1994 graduate of
Wilkes.
Granahan, who won New
York Comedy Club’s “Best
New Talent” award in 2003,
has opened for Russo before at
Gotham Comedy Club, which
later aired on Comedy Central.
This is the third time Russo
will be performing at his Alma
Mater.
“I hadn’t been back to
Wilkes in a while and I wanted
to go back to where it all be-
gan,” he said. “With show
business it’s all about business,
so I wanted to come back to
Wilkes to do the show part.”
All the proceeds from ticket
sales will benefit the Depart-
ment of Communication Stud-
ies Alumni and Friends schol-
arship and two of these schol-
arships will be given next year.
“The need for financial aid is
greater than it’s ever been,”
said Zebra Communications
adviser Jane Elmes-Crahall.
Tickets for students are $10
and $20 for the public.

Why is Northeastern Penn-
sylvania a breeding ground for
scandal? A local author has an
answer, and it lies in the re-
gion’s history of immigrants
and coal-mining.
Kenny Luck, author of “NE-
PATIZED: Behind the People
and Controversies that Define
Us” (Avventura Press, 2011)

Environmentalism, Tuesday,
Nov. 29, at the Lackawanna
College Environmental In-
stitute, Rt. 435, Moscow.
The program will begin at
6:30 p.m. and admission is $5.
Luck will broaden the view
of environmentalism in his
presentation by discussing the
impact of drilling for natural
gas in the Marcellus Shale
region. His next book, “Mar-
cellus Shale Ale: How the
Natural Gas Industry is De-
stroying our Environment,
Communities and Democra-
cy,” will be published by Av-
ventura Press early next year
and is the first book to explore
the issue.
Luck is an author from
Scranton. A graduate of Mary-
wood University, he has writ-
ten for local publications such
as The Weekender and Go
Lackawanna.
Those interested in attending
are asked to pre-register by

CLARKSSUMMIT- For every
championship racing driver who
flashes across a computer or TV
screen, a humble start at local
tracks was the precursor to great-
ness.
Fromtraveling to and fromraces
each weekend, to learning the
basics of everything frommechan-
ical setup, to promotion and spon-
sor relations, the life a young race
car driver is busy and demanding.
But for those who stick with it, the
ladder of career opportunities is
there for the climbing.
And in the case of Clarks Sum-
mit resident Jerry Tunney, climb-
ing the ladder- all the way to NAS-
CAR, perhaps- is exactly the plan
for the future.
Asophomore at Scranton Prep
who is barely old enough to drive
on public roads, Tunney has been
making waves on the motor racing
scene, both locally and nationally.
After spending much of his career
racing on dirt tracks, including at
Five Mile Point Speedway in New
York, Tunney made the jump to
racing on asphalt in 2011. Running
a full season of races- many of
themat Mountain Speedway, in
the town of St. John’s, Pa.- the
young driver who displays the
name of his hometown on his
windshield is excited about the
progress he made this year, both
on and off the track.
“It was my first year racing on
an asphalt surface,” Tunney said
recently. “My best result this year
was a third-place finish at Moun-
tain Speedway in June. It might
not sound like much, but it was a
great highlight to a season that was
my first competing on asphalt,
against many drivers with more
experience and more resources
than I had coming into the year.
While his on-track progress has
been solid, Tunney said he has
grown and developed the most
fromhis attendance through a
scholarship at Race101, a North
Carolina-based school for young
racing drivers. Over the course of
two extended weekends last win-
ter, Tunney was able to learn from
the pros about many different
facets of racing. Fromchassis
setup and tire adjustments, to mar-
keting, promotion and sponsor
relations, young drivers at Race
101got to see and do everything
under the guidance of expert in-
structors. Along the way, Tunney
and his classmates got to pick the
brains of several top NASCAR
drivers and staff as well.
“My time spent at Racing101
was huge for all aspects of my
career…so huge I can’t even put it
into words,” Tunney said of his

While he is done racing for the 2011
calendar year, Tunney is busy putting
plans together for next season. He is

Last season the Keystone College men’s
basketball team(21-6) tallied their highest
win total since the 2005-2006 campaign
when the Giants reeled off 22 victories.
The Giants of La Plume turned in a
conference mark of 13-5, while also win-
ning six of their final seven regular season
games, securing the third seed in the Co-
lonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC)
playoffs.
After making easy work of Immaculata
University in the quarterfinal round, the
Giants found themselves in the confer-
ence semi-finals for the third straight
season and for the third straight season
Keystone had its year come to an abrupt
halt in the round of four.
Fast forward to the start of the 2011-
2012 season. Last season was a memory
as the Giants entered this year with a new
top man on the bench, as Nevada Smith
began his first season as head coach,
following the departure of Jason Leone in
August. The teamalso welcomed back 53

SCRANTON- The University
of Scranton basketball teamhas
been picked to finish first in
their conference this year and
defend the team’s conference
championship earned last year.
If while attending a basketball
game this year familiar faces
seemto be on the court it’s for
good reason.
TimLavelle,
Ross Danzig
and Justin
Klingman are
three players
on the men’s
teamfromthe
Abington area.
Lavelle, a
junior, is a Scranton Preparatory
High School graduate, while
Danzig, a
transfer fresh-
man and
Klingman, a
freshman, both
graduated
fromAbington
Heights High
School. The
trio has known
one another for many years and
their coach, Carl Danzig, feels
as though that
gives theman
advantage on
the court.
“It’s really
fun to watch
themon the
court together
and notice that
they are clearly
seeing what the other person is
seeing,” Danzig said.
Danzig noted that although
the trio has past experience
together, it doesn’t keep them
fromworking hard in practice.
“I think all three of themare
really great kids. They played
over the summer together to get
ready for the season and in
practice it’s obvious that all of
themwant to be successful. I
think Tim(Lavelle) having a
strong finish to last season has
given himsome good momen-
tumcoming into this year,”
Danzig said.

year and also the coach’s son, is

Some may classify this year’s Keystone
College women’s basketball teamas a
rebuilding project; while others may term
it a complete overhaul.
Whatever phrase is used, one thing is
certain; this is a brand newera for wom-
en’s basketball at the College.
The coaching staff is eagerly looking
forward to the start of the season, stressing
that the added depth and competition at
each position will make for a very com-
petitive team.
“With more athleticismthan in previous
years, this squad is a great foundation for
the future of Keystone Women’s’ Basket-
ball. As a programwe are looking forward
to building around these young &ener-
getic players,” said head coach Katie
Tetzlaw. “With12 newfaces, two solid
returners and a newsystem, we are really
excited about this year’s season.”

Travel team takes title
CLARKSSUMMIT-When
Colin McIntyre, 12, was on his
way to his way to try out for the
ultra-competitive Lehigh Valley
United U-12 boys’ soccer team,
he was filled with nerves. His
coach for his regular soccer
teamin the Abingtons had men-
tioned that there would be
tryouts for this travel teamcom-
ing up for any player who was
interested and Colin was ready.
“I remember he told our entire
teamthat we could go and try
out for this teamif we wanted to
but it wasn’t going to be easy. I
was definitely nervous…there
were a lot of good players
there,” the North Abington
Township resident said.
His father, Gary McIntyre,
recalled the coach telling him
that his son would be a good
candidate to make the team.
“I remember he just told us
that Colin would be a good
person fromtheir teamto go and
try out, but we didn’t really
knowwhat to expect,” Gary
McIntyre said.
Colin, 11, although anxious,
earned a spot on the teamthat
would lead himto the biggest
victory of his young life.
This fall, in the Columbus
Cup, a soccer tournament Co-
lumbus Day weekend in Yar-
dley, teams fromacross the
country gathered to compete in
the event. The two top-ranked
teams in the nation, both from
Maryland, were participants in
the tournament and it didn’t take
long before Colin and his team
found themselves up against the
top- ranked teamin the nation-
the Baltimore Bays Chelsea
Football Club.
Gary McIntyre was quick to
admit he wasn’t too confident in
a positive outcome for his son’s
teamin the game.“Too be hon-
est, I didn’t think we had a
chance. Of course I wanted
Colin’s teamto win, but it didn’t
look good at the time,” he said.
The Lehigh Valley United
soccer teamwas able to pull off
an amazing upset with a1-0 win
to eliminate the top- ranked
teamin the tournament.
“I was really happy. The entire
teamwas excited and it was just
a great feeling in general…defi-
nitely the biggest highlight of
my soccer career,” Colin said.
Although the teamfell in the
semi-finals to the eventual tour-
nament champions who are now
the top- ranked teamin the na-
tion, the Fewster Football Club,
Gary McIntyre sensed a new
feeling among the players.
“They gained a lot of confi-
dence in that win. They’re
ranked14th in the nation now
and they don’t back down from
anyone they play,” McIntyre
said.
He was also quick to point out
howproud he was of his son’s
accomplishments.
“It’s not easy traveling for
practice two days a week plus a
game. Sometimes he has to
sacrifice some of his other
sports games or practices but he
does it. He’s a very hard worker
and especially in school. He
deserved it,” McIntyre said.

which would put himone step

January for more training and
education in racing, and he
can’t wait to dig in even deeper
to the fine points of a racing
career.
“I learned so much at Race
101that going back will be
another huge step forward, and
the ARCArace would be huge
if we can make it happen,”
Tunney added. “It’s not easy,
and I amalways thankful to

with looking for newsponsors,
to make it all work.”

taught me so much about
things I was just starting to
pick up on my own. It was also
neat to talk to guys like T.J.
Bell, who made his debut in
the NASCARSprint Cup
Series this year. He was a guy
who was in my shoes just a
fewyears ago.”
In the process of building
his racing career, Tunney has
grabbed the attention of sever-
al accomplished racing drivers
and personalities. Recently,
this list has expanded to in-
clude Oscar Koveleski, a
Clarks Summit resident with
deep connections in the motor
racing world. Aveteran Sports
Car Club of America driver
who captured the1970 SCCA
National Championship, Ko-
veleski has spent much of his
life promoting motor racing
safety, while teaching and
coaching young racing drivers.
After seeing media reports
about Tunney’s career pro-
gress, the motor-sport veteran
reached out and started work-
ing with Tunney, who he first
met in person at this year’s
Clarks Summit Centennial
celebration.
“Jerry and his family came
to the centennial events and
worked with us all day,” Kove-
leski said, referring to his Ki-
dracer event for children. “He
and his family are a good
team. They are very interested
in his career and howto keep
developing.
“He’s got a natural handicap
to overcome, because he is
very tall for a racing driver.
But he’s moving in the right
direction. He especially needs
to understand howracing
drivers develop their careers
now, in the 21st century, which
is much different than the way
it worked when I was racing.”
“Jerry has lots of potential.
All he needs is to keep moving
in the right direction.”
While he is done racing for
the 2011calendar year, Tunney

“You knowI played a year of

against some really good com-
petition and I think it helped
me growas a player. But it also
made me realize howgreat of
an opportunity I have to play in
the area where I grewup, have
my dad as my coach and play
with some people I’ve known
my whole life,” Danzig said.
Klingman felt as though his
relationship with Danzig and
Lavelle helped his transition to
college basketball this year.
“Well I played with Ross in
high school and knewTim, so
it was really good being able to
ask themquestions as the
season was beginning. Coach
puts in the plays right away and
we need to learn themfast, so
having that comfort level as a
freshman that you can talk to
someone who knows what is
going on is valuable,” Kling-
man said.
Coach Danzig’s outlook on
the season is a positive one. He
noted that this year’s teamis
probably one of his most excit-
ing teams to watch froman
athletic standpoint as they look
to defend their conference
championship this year.
When asked howit feels to
nowhave his son help him
defend their championship this
season and play for himfor
another three years, Danzig
grinned and responded:
“I’mexcited to be able to

Not many parents get to do
that when their kids are at

relationship…hopefully my
answer is the same in four

She brought in raw ingredients, a semi-finished product and then the
completed cooked version for the class to try. She spoke about her
Middle Eastern heritage and some of the other foods from that area.
After a few minutes of uncertainty, the students tried the finished prod-
uct and were delighted. Many had more than one serving. Some of the
boys actually had seven or eight. Family and Consumer Sciences

Baptist Bible College men’s
and women’s basketball teams
began the 2011-2012 season in
mid-November, with many key
returning starters for the Lady
Defenders and newplayers
assuming key roles on the De-
fenders squad.
Men’s Coach Mike Show
enters his 18th season at the
college. Women’s Coach Am-
ber Jacobs, a former WNBA
player with deep connections to
the college, enters her second.
Lady Defenders aiming high
Jacobs is excited about her
teamand the potential that
exists. All four players that
averaged double digits in scor-
ing are back for the 2011-2012
campaign. The team, at 15-11,
finished fifth in the Colonial
States Athletic Conference last
season and lost in the first
round of the playoffs. The Lady
Defenders will have almost the
same starting five as a year ago.
Last year’s CSACFreshman of
the Year, Kacee Rava, is ready
for a newseason. Averaging
16.4 points a game and11.2
rebounds, she worked hard over
the summer and is ready for her
sophomore year. Guard Ruthie
Butts, who led the teamin scor-
ing (17.1ppg) as a freshman has
also worked hard to refine her
shot to propel her toward being
one of the top shooters in the
league. Captains Kelly Barg-
feldt (12 ppg) and Jessica White
(10.3 ppg, 9 rpg) look to lead
the teamwith their experience
and leadership. The sixth man
froma season ago and current
tri-captain Kellie Bernard looks
to continue in that role. Another
player looking to bring high
energy and work ethic is Mela-
nie Williams. After taking a
fewyears off, Williams returns
as if she hasn’t missed a beat.
She will look to provide stabil-
ity off the bench at both guard
and forward. Newcomers look-
ing to make an impact this year
are ChAmeera Boggs, Lexi
Thomas, and Alyssa Cole.
Thomas, a transfer, is starting
the year off injured, but once
healthy will be looked at to give
valuable minutes. Freshman
Boggs is one of those players
who just loves to play the game.
Once she makes the adjustment
fromhigh school basketball to
college basketball, she has the
potential to add some flair to
the already stacked lineup for
the Lady Defenders. In the
pre-season polls that are voted
on by the CSACcoaches, BBC
is picked to finish in 6th place.
Coach Jacobs is joined by
assistant coaches Deanna Park-
er and Amber Severance. The
season started with a 61-35 win
vs. PSU- Wilkes-Barre Nov.15.
Men’s teamlooking to build
Coach Showhas a challeng-
ing season ahead. With the loss
of nine players, most of whom
contributed heavily last season,
the young teamhas to find their
identity and quickly learn what
is expected of them. Key re-
turners are Luke Peterson, Ste-
phen Howard, Christian Attle-
sey and Jordan Greve. Peterson
earned a starting spot at the end
of the season as his offense
took off. He averaged10.9
points per game 3.8 rebounds
per game. His shooting ability
has improved over the season
and he seems to have a knack
for scoring. In his final season,
Howard, who is the teamcap-
tain, will lead the teamwith his
experience and hustle on the
floor. He led the teamin steals
last season with 22. Another
senior, Attlesey, will be the
veteran of the big men. Greve
has the potential to be a big
threat for the Defenders. Junior
Kyle Pannebaker will be called
on to play a much bigger role
this year. Only averaging 5.5
minutes a game last season, he
worked hard on his shot this
summer and will look to con-
tribute in that area. Dan Dodd
has a lot of potential in the post.
Freshman Nate Wiersma is
expected to have an instant
impact on the teamwith athlet-
ic play in the post and on de-
fense. Other freshmen that may
have an impact include Bran-
don Maxwell and Shane Hippli.
In the pre-season poll, the De-
fenders are picked to finish
ninth in the CSAC.Coach Show
is joined by veteran assistant
coaches Dwight Peterson, Joel
Nietz and Jon Konzelman. The
season started with an 80-59
loss to Cazenovia College Nov.
