WILKES-BARRE, PA.
Thanks toseveral peoplewhohaverespondedtoastorypublish-
ed in the Jan. 27 edition of The Dallas Post, the sign on Memorial
Highway will be repaired.
DanDuffy, of Shavertown, was thefirst tocall about thesign. His
son, Connor, a ninth-grade student at Dallas High School and a
member of Boy Scout Troop146 inJacksonTownship, will take on
the challenge of repairing the sign as part of his Eagle Scout pro-
ject.
TonyHudak, proprietor of AJHservices andaMarineCorps vet,
has offered to lend his construction expertise and will assist Con-
nor with the project.
Joseph Gimble, of Larksville, said the story about the sign
caught hiseye. Aformer correctionsofficer at theStateCorrection-
al Institute in Dallas, Gimble was a student at the GI Carpenters
School onDorrance Street inKingstonin1956 andremembers the
signbeingconstructedthere by veterans attendingschool nthe GI
bill.
John Emil, commander of the American Legion Daddow-Isaacs
Post 672 in Dallas and American Legion district commander, says
Legion members put flags on top of the sign every year.
Heremembers aBoyScout namedBrianGrezzi paintedthesign
aspart of aScout project oneyearandsaysthat, in1967thesignwas
knocked down and repaired by members of the American legion.
Emil alsoreportedthat thesignwas originallyinstalledbyagen-
tleman named John Blackman who dedicated it not only to mili-
tary veterans but to Back Mountain heroes like firefighters, EMTs
and police officers.
He added that the sign was damaged by a snow plow during a
snowstormthis winter.
The Dallas Post will monitor progress of the signrepair andcon-
tinue to update its readers on the issue.

Lake-Lehman School District
booster clubs are uniting for a
day-long fundraiser on June 1.
The Knight of Mayhem fun-
draiser is intendedtoraise money
for newturf for the districts play-
ing field.
According to district superin-
tendent James McGovern, 13 dif-
ferent programs and several com-
munity groups use the surface.
The turf is constantly used, he
said, adding that it must be re-
placed for the safety of the stu-
dents.
The Knight of Mayhem fun-
draiser will run from10 a.m. into
the evening.
The main activity of the fun-
draiser will beanovel gamecalled
Cow Pie Bingo. A fundraiser that
has been used by other charitable
organizations and which is grow-
ing in popularity, Cow Pie Bingo
involves selling two by two foot
square deeds to a field. A cow is
let loose in the field. The player
who holds the ticket to the square
littered by the cow is the winner.
The winner gets 10 percent of the
total deed sales.
McGovern also said that there
will be a carnival, including
games of chance, games for small
children and food. A disc jockey
will provide music and the dis-
tricts theater group will produce
an outdoor program.
The facility goal for the day is
2,500 to 3,000 people.
We will also have a silent auc-
tion and a youth basketball tour-
nament, McGovern said, adding
that a giant flag football tourna-
ment is also planned.
The goal is for this one event to
meet the yearly debt schedule for
the update tothe field. The super-
intendent said it will cost about
$500,000 to replace the turf. Al-
though the track will not be re-
placed, it will be re-sprayed.
Thetotal cost of thefieldwill be
determined after bids are re-
ceived and sponsorships have
been solicited. For $15,000, spon-
sors can place their emblem or
message ona five byfive yardarea
along the side of the field.
McGovern wants the field to be
unique. It will be black.
Were going to call it The
Black Hole, he said.
McGovern hopes the distinc-
tive fieldwill be unique enoughto
attract sponsors and create more
community stakeholders in the
project. For him, the field repre-
sents far more than a place for ac-
tivities.
Youre teaching coping skills
and perseverance. It doesnt mat-
ter which sport, he said, adding
that he believes sports teachinde-
pendence, generosity and com-
munity in equal parts.
For McGovern, education is
more than classroom learning.
All that intelligence and mastery
doesnt mean that youre a good
person, he said.
Everybody thinks you can buy
success, he added. But the foun-
dationof intelligence is independ-
ent thought.

During a visioning session on
Jan. 29, Jack Varaly, a consultant
tothe townships Comprehensive
Plan Committee, reported the re-
sults of the American Communi-
ty Survey, an ongoing activity of
the U.S. Census Bureau.
The township is in the process
of developing a comprehensive
plan to identify issues regarding
the future of the townshipandda-
ta collected by the Census will be
used in the plan.
Varaly said, although the town-
ship population continues to
growsteadily, the period of rapid
growth has passed. The median
age of township residents is 44.3
and only 12.3 % of its residents
are school-aged children.
Theres a lot of empty-nesters
now, he said. Of the 3,333house-
holds in the approximately 18.7
square miles of the township,
99% of its occupants are white
and primarily of German, Irish,
Italian and Polish descent.
Varaly also reported that the
average home value in the town-
ship is $182,400.
Thats well above that of the
countyor state andits amongthe
highest in the Back Mountain ar-
ea, he said, adding that Jackson
Townships average home value
is the highest at $218,000. In-
vesting in housing in Dallas
Township is a worthwhile invest-
ment.
Part of the process of develop-
ing a comprehensive plan is up-
dating the townships maps and
ordinances. The committee dis-
cussed the townships zoning dis-
tricts and the possibility of
changing the designation of
some areas.
Varaly suggested rezoning
some Agriculture-zoned areas
(A1) to a Conservation designa-
tion, which could protect lan-
downers from oil and gas uses
such as compressor stations and
processing plants. It makes
sense to be in a conservation dis-
trict, he said.
Therese Kosek, a member of
the Visioning Committee, said
shes concerned about losing
green space along the highway
business district on state Route
415. Idhate tosee the whole cor-
ridor of land turn into one long
strip mall to Harveys Lake, she
said. Varaly pointed out that zon-
ing modifications can be made
for set-back requirements and
sign height.
The groupwill meet againat10
a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7 in the
municipal building and also at its
regular meeting held at 7 p.m. on
the last Monday of each month,
as needed.

Report says period of rapid growth is now passed
By CAMILLE FIOTI
Dallas Post Correspondent
Varaly said, although the township population continues to grow
steadily, the period of rapid growth has passed. The median age
of township residents is 44.3 and only 12.3 % of its residents are
school-aged children. Varaly also reported that the average home
value in the township is $182,400.
On a cold Sunday afternoon,
far from their cozy living rooms
and football games, a group of
dancers and their faithful parents
piled into the Back Mountain
Dance Studioof BobandKristine
Oberst to celebrate a phenom-
enal victory.
While the feathered and se-
quenced Back Mountain dancers
have won competitions before,
never have they won this many
trophies and cash - a total of
$4,300.
The competitions are run by
the Performing Arts Alliance
which, accordingtoits website, is
consideredoneof thebest dance
competitions on the East coast.
Competitions are held in May
and November and dancers or
teams that place first, second or
third in those competitions are
theneligible tocompete ina Con-
test of Champions in January.
Oberst says the local studio of-
ten wins parts of the competi-
tion, but this year its more like a
sweep. Local dancers took the
grand championships in four age
groups: in solo performance ages
8 to 9; 10 to12, 13 to15 plus a duo
/trio championship in the 16 to
18 age group. Two groups com-
petedandwoninthe 8 to9 and10
to 12 year old bracket and there
was a Grand Champion for Mod-
eling from the school.
As if that wasnt enough, 12-
year-old Nick Oberst, son of the
studio owners, won as best solo
entertainer of the year and the
group Locomotion won $1,000
for having the most entertaining
routine of the year.
Its enough to take ones
breathaway, saidOberst. It was
a big surprise.
The competition involves over
500 contestants from about a
dozen dance studios from New
York, New Jersey and Pennsylva-
nia.
The Obersts have owned and
operated the Back Mountain
Dance Studio since 1990 and
have won honors for their school
and their choreography.
Jace Garnick is the solo Grand Champion in the 10 to 12 year-old category. Entertainer of the Year Nick Oberst holds one of his trophies over his head. The Back Mountain
Dance Studio won $4,300 in cash and swept a regional dance competition in southern PA.

YOUR SPACE
By Samantha Weaver
It was Simon Cameron, who served as secretary of war under
President Abraham Lincoln, who made the following sage observa-
tion: An honest politician is one who, when he is bought, will stay
bought.
You might not be surprised to learn that some people who play
video games can become rather obsessed. In 2007, one such person,
a 45-year-old gamer, used a Japanese sword to rob a lingerie shop.
He was apprehended, and when he was put on trial, he told the judge
that at the time of the robbery he believed he was a female elf.
Its common knowledge that methane, a greenhouse gas, con-
tributes to the rise in global temperatures. Its less well-known, how-
ever, that 20 percent of the worlds methane emissions comes from
livestock and their, well ... emissions.
Many professional matchmakers say that one should never date
a person who is younger than half ones age, plus seven years.
The average human walks approximately 100,000 miles in the
course of a lifetime. If that walking were done in a straight line on the
equator, you would circle the Earth four times.
In the early 1990s, a couple in Milwaukee was curious about the
value of a painting they had displayed in their home, so they invited
an art expert to evaluate the piece. The painting in question turned
out to be of little relative value, but the expert noticed another work,
a still life with flowers, that the owners believed to be a reproduction
of a Van Gogh. Imagine this couples surprise when the work turned
out to be an original 1886 painting, which later sold at auction for
$1.4 million.

THEDALLAS POST
Sports
As neighbors and rivals, the
Dallas girls basketball team has
seen a lot of Lake-Lehman.
The Lady Mountaineers, how-
ever, had never seen the Lady
Knights look quite like they did
in the Jan. 26 game.
No one had.
They came to see us play
multiple times, said sophomore
center Cayle Spencer, who
scored a career-high 33 points to
lead Lake-Lehman to a 72-63 up-
set. Weve never played that
well.
With Spencer making strong
inside moves to the basket and
Emily Sutton hitting all four of
her 3-point shots in a 22-point
effort, Lake-Lehman never
trailed while knocking off the
Wyoming Valley Conference Di-
vision 1 leaders on their home
floor in the first Black and Blue
Rivalry Trophy Game.
The annual game now fea-
tures a trophy sponsored by the
Dallas Lions Club which will be
displayed at the school of the
winning team throughout the
year.
Lake-Lehman coach Charlie
Lavan agreed with his leading
scorer. The Lady Knights picked
their rivalry game for their best
effort of the season.
Our Crestwood game was
close, but it was not like this,
Lavan said.
Lake-Lehman entered the day
tied for seventh place out of 18
teams jockeying for seeding po-
sition in the District 2 Class
AAA playoffs and as a third-place
team in Division 2 of the WVC.
The Lady Knights used the non-
conference game to show their
potential for the playoffs that are
weeks away.
Its a big rivalry game for us,
Lavan said, but its also a gauge
to see where we are with these
Class Triple-A teams. We moved
up to Class Triple-A this year
and this was encouraging.
That was clear in the first 1:47
when Lake-Lehman forced three
Dallas turnovers and scored the
games first six points, convinc-
ing Lady Mountaineers coach
Kelly Johnson to use her first
timeout.
They werent expecting that
from us, Spencer said. We
played harder than we ever
played.
Lake-Lehmans hustle was evi-
dent from the start. The Lady
Knights made six steals in the
first quarter and, at the midway
point in the second quarter, were
crushing the Lady Mountain-
eers, 18-6, on the boards.
That was all on effort, Lavan
said. The girls had their minds
made up they were going to
make a total effort. They did.
Spencer had 11 points in the
games first seven minutes, cre-
ating a 22-9 lead.
Sutton hit one 3-pointer in
each quarter while scoring 22
points and leading the teamwith
Mountaineer Ashley Dunbar, left, drives to the basket as Lake-
Lehmans Danae Sutliff goes for the block in girls varsity basket-
ball.

Lake-Lehman opened the
wrestling season with another
championship-caliber team, but
one that was in position to give
away points in every match be-
cause it could not fill the 106-
pound weight class.
Rebecca Wright spent parts of
the last three years telling her
family she would like to try wres-
tling.
When they connected a few
weeks into the season, the Black
Knights solved a problem and
Wright got a chance to try a sport
that, in 2011-12 in Pennsylvania,
was exclusively for boys.
I wasnt a fan of the idea to be
honest, said Bob Wright, Rebec-
cas father and president of the
Lake-Lehman Wrestling Parents
Club. She does competitive
cheerleading, which is very de-
manding of her time.
Shes wanted to wrestle for
the last three years.
Once Rebecca had a discussion
with the Lake-Lehman coach, it
was time to talk about her idea at
home again.
Robert Wright, Rebeccas older
brother and a two-year starter
with the Black Knights, helped
with the process.
I had to convince my dad,
said Rebecca, who is a football
cheerleader at Lake-Lehman and
does cheerleading competition
outside of school. My brother
helped me.
It was not the last time Robert
helped Rebecca with wrestling.
He gave me a lot of advice,
Rebecca said. He helped me
with the moves.
And, he kept an eye on his little
sister. While he says he is protec-
tive of Rebecca, Robert said his
teammates have accepted her
well.
They were all pumped and ex-
cited to have her on the team, he
said.
According to the National Fed-
eration of State High School Ath-
letic Associations annual Athlet-
ics Participation Survey, 9,920
boys at 496 Pennsylvania schools
participated in wrestling on the
highschool level in2011-12. Not a
single girl competed.
On the national level, 272,149
boys wrestled for 10,407 schools
while8,235girls wrestledat1,441
schools, with California and Tex-
as accounting for more than half
of those participants.
At Lake-Lehman, Rebecca has
been able to help her team while
still learning the sport.
She has picked up six team
points for the Black Knights on
six occasions, gaining forfeit
wins when opponents could not
fill the weight class.
She wants to bring more to the
team.
She said she wants to wres-
tle, Lake-Lehman coach Tom
Williams said. She doesnt want
to stand there and take forfeits.
She comes into the wrestling
room and works at it.
Rebecca ran into one reluctant
opponent, who did not want to
have to wrestle her when they
were paired up at a tournament.

While much attention has
been thrust on these competi-
tions by shows like Dance
Moms, the competition isnt
anywhere near as intense for
this group.
Sara Pizzo has been compet-
ing for the last 10 years. I love
the atmosphere, she said. Its
exciting; you get an adrenaline
rush and it pushes me to do bet-
ter.
Carly Kappler said, I wasnt
nervous because it was my fa-
vorite routine - a solotaproutine
- and it was the first time I won
grand champion.
Enthusiastically, Jamie Bon-
sall says, The best part is to be
together with my school for
competition. We all get along
and work together.
Eyes bright, shining with de-
votion, Nick Oberst says of the
competition, I love it, all of it.
Ill never get tired of it, espe-
cially now that he has $450 of
prize money in his pocket that
he hopes to use as a down pay-
ment on a car or truck.

She lost each of her first three
matches on the mat, but ap-
proached a breakthrough when
she took a lead after a period
against Wyoming Area and was
still in a close bout before being
pinned in the final 20 seconds.
Williams pointed out that
womens wrestling is part of the
Olympics and is offered at some
colleges in addition to high
schools in other parts of the
country. Wright, however, has
not yet seen any wrestling
matches other than those where
she is the lone girl competing
with the boys.
As the Black Knights pre-
pared to pursue the District 2
Class AA Dual Meet Tourna-
ment title this weekend, Wright
was busygettingherself readyto
helpthat pursuit as muchas pos-
sible.

11 rebounds. Danae Sutliff added
10 points, six rebounds, four as-
sists and three steals.
They all did their roles, La-
van said, rattling off the contribu-
tions of the five starters and two
subs who combined for the victo-
ry.
Included was senior guard Jen
Konopinski, who, despite being
the shortest player on the floor at
5-foot-1, was second in the game
with nine rebounds.
Shes scrappy, Lavan said.
She gets off the floor real well
and she gets herself in the right
spots.
The final 40-31 rebounding
edge and a 48-percent shooting
effort allowed Lake-Lehman to
overcome 31 turnovers at the
hands of the Dallas pressure de-
fense.
Sam Missal made four 3-point-
ers while leading Dallas with 16
points before fouling out. Jess
Hiscox added 14 points. Ashley
Dunbar had 11 points, six assists
and five steals while Talia Szat-
kowski providedsixpoints, seven
rebounds, four assists and a
team-high six steals. Katy Co-
mitz came off the bench for eight
points and seven rebounds.
Their efforts allowed the Lady
Mountaineers to make several
runs but Dallas never caught up.
After an eight-point streak
gave Lake-Lehman the 22-9 lead,
Comitz finished the first quarter
with a 3-point play. Comitz and
Hiscox then hit consecutive 3-
pointers to cut the deficit to 23-18
midway through the second.
Dallas began getting to the of-
fensive boards and got as close as
three twice before Suttons 3-
pointer with 15 seconds left gave
Lake-Lehman a 30-24 advantage
at halftime.
Lake-Lehman opened a gap
again when Sutton scored the
first five points and Spencer the
next three in an 8-0 run in just 43
seconds for a 48-35 lead late in
the third quarter.
We had a big start then that
stretch in the third quarter built
our confidence up again and gave
us a little cushion to play with,
Lavan said.
Spencer finished off Dallas
with 19 second-half points, in-
cluding 11 in the third quarter.
She went 14-for-17 from the foul
line.
The Lady Knights led by as
many as 15 points three times in
the fourth quarter.
