I dug out the black mock
turtle neck shirt I bought in
Pittsburgh prior to a Steelers
game some years ago and wore
it Friday with a pair of jeans as
a tribute to Steve Jobs.
Why his death weighed so
heavy on me I am still trying to
figure out, although I seem to
be discovering answers little by
little.
Part of it is the way I heard
the news: a phone call from my
son Thursday night: Dad, they
announced 24 minutes ago that
Steve Jobs has died. Neither of
us could think of anything to
say.
The call, of course, was made
on his iPhone.
My son and daughter have
never known a world without
Macintosh computers. I became
a Mac, as they say, in 1984
when Wilkes University (then-
College) invited me to teach an
introductory journalism class. It
was the year of the famous
Super Bowl commercial which
introduced the Mac with the
bold claim that, because of it,
1984 wont be like 1984.
I accepted the job at Wilkes
maybe not completely but part-
ly because it was going to be
taught for the first time ever in
a lab full of Macs. Up to then,
journalism was always taught in
a classroom on typewriters.
But something else gnawed at
my heart as I brushed my teeth
in front of the TV in my bed-
room early Thursday morning,
unable to drag myself away
from CNN and classic footage
of Jobs introducing one culture-
altering innovation after anoth-
er, each time in his trademark
black shirt and jeans, and each
time growing thinner and thin-
ner.
Thats what was getting to
me, I soon realized.
Looking at Jobs emaciated
body brought back images of
my sister Barbara near the end
of her life.
From the time she was a
toddler, Barbie had been over-
weight, but in a hospital bed in
her final days there was not
much left of her. Be careful
what you wish for, she told my
sister Sheila one day. I always
wanted to be skinny.
In a writing class at the col-
lege Thursday afternoon I told
the students to spend the next
two hours writing anything they
wanted based on this prompt:
Steve Jobs is dead. How they
handled it made me proud.
Some were flippant, I must
say, with opening sentences like
We lost a lot of jobs lately but
this one is different, or Ap-
parently an Apple a day doesnt
keep the doctor away, but
some were profound.
iMac.
iPhone.
iPod.
iPad.
ilove you, Steve Jobs.
Liz Baumeister wrote.
Her next line was:
But sometimes iCurse you.
Caught up in a world of
email, tweeting and texting, she
said she misses writing a letter
with a pen and paper, putting it
in an envelope with a stamp
and dropping it in the mail.
Another student, Cassidy
Sherman, wrote that she grew
up in an iFamily with the ulti-
mate iDad.
Another worked into her
article that she cannot write
without music plugged into her
ears from her iPod and was
doing so as she wrote about the
guy who invented it.
In other classes, I played
Steve Jobs famous commence-
ment address delivered at Stan-
ford University in 2005. At the
time he believed he had con-
quered the cancer he had been
diagnosed with two years earli-
er.
No one wants to die, Jobs
told the students near the end of
his speech. Even people who
want to go to heaven dont want
to die to get there. And yet,
death is the destination we all
share. No one has ever escaped
it. And that is as it should be,
because Death is very likely the
single best invention of Life. It
is Lifes change agent. It clears
out the old to make way for the
new ...
Your time is limited, he
continued, so dont waste it
living someone elses life.
Dont be trapped by dogma
which is living with the results
of other peoples thinking.
Dont let the noise of others
opinions drown out your own
inner voice. And most impor-
tant, have the courage to follow
your heart and intuition. They
somehow already know what
you truly want to become.
Those words bring to mind
another man who lost his life to
cancer at a fairly young age,
Michael Joyce.
I interviewed him just days
before his death when the only
way he could communicate was
by writing on an electronic
tablet. The last thing he wrote
was: Im just going to live
until I die.
And thats what Michael
Joyce did.
And what Steve Jobs did.
And what we all must do.
Its the only way.
And a far better tribute than a
black shirt and a pair of jeans.

hristine Holtz saw the
flood waters rise from a
unique perspective ly-
ing on the roof of the Old Mill
Pine hardware store pointing a
flashlight into the stores front
window.
Christine and her husband
Jeff Holtz proprietors of the
hardware store at 400 Exeter
Avenue on the corner of Parke
in West Pittston live above
the store with
their two
daughters
Alex, 16, and
Samantha, 21.
On that in-
famous Thurs-
day as the riv-
er came up
Jeff, Christine
and Samantha,
friends Jim
and Marion
Ciampi and
neighbor Scott
Chervenitski
and volunteers
they didnt
even know
hustled to beat
the water.
They passed new bicycles
out of the store onto a pick up
truck bed and then onto the
flat roof of the store.
They loaded lawn mowers
and chain saws into Ciampis
pick up and hauled them to
higher ground.
Customers lawn mowers,
which were in for repairs, went
up on picnic tables.
They put smaller items from
on the lower shelves from
boxes of nails to small tools
into buckets on the floor.
Meanwhile their daughter Alex
hoarded water upstairs in every
available vessel and the bath-
tub.
They worked until 5 p.m.
Then they climbed a ladder up
to their home. Thats when
Christine went out on the roof
with her flashlight.
Luckily she saw the water
stop after rising to only three
feet on the first floor.
Only because she and Jeff
said they felt lucky compared
to a lot of West Pittston home
and business owners.
On Friday morning, Jeff
waded in his hip boots into the
store. The buckets they filled
were tipped and, of course,
their heat and hot water sys-
tems were destroyed, but there
was no major structural dam-
age and Old Mill Pine was
back in business Friday at
noon.
We were closed less than
24 hours, Christine said. No
power, no credit cards. We
were still cleaning out mud,
but we were open.
A lot of people affected by
the flood were glad they were
open and came in to buy hos-
es, nozzles, mops, gloves,
tarps, squeegees, extension
cords, flashlights, batteries and
sump pumps.
Paula Denisco, who lives
nearby, came in to get flash-
lights and batteries and came
back day after day to help out.
The family stayed in their
apartment above the store for
two weeks without power.
They were hosted for showers
and dinner nightly by friend
John Melvin at Ledgeview on
Exeter Avenue.
Jeffs extended family was
affected in the block below
Parke on Exeter Avenue.
His mothers home, two of
his brothers homes, a wood-
working shop and a three-unit
apartment building in the orig-
inal store were flooded.
His mother is staying with
his sister in Harding.
Its been a tough year. Jeffs
father and business partner,
Ken Holtz, died in April.
With power fully restored,
Old Mill Pine is back to near
normal, albeit with a Mud
Sale sign outside in the park-
ing lot. Inside, its business as
usual even as the clean up
continues.
Jeff echoed a familiar theme
in flood stories: We were
blessed with people who
helped us. Friends and people
we dont even know.

Whats newor coming soon on
Main Street, Pittston?
Restaurants, antique and col-
lectible stores, a Boden clothing
outlet, signage and facades, side-
walks and period lighting.
Whats next?
An art gallery.
Kathleen Godwin, of Arts
YOUniverse, and Mike Burn-
side, of the Cultural Council of
Luzerne County, who are part-
ners of the Arts SEEN Gallery
on Public Square in Wilkes-
Barre, are looking forward to
opening a similar gallery in
downtown Pittston.
Burnside said the gallery
charges artists $20 per month to
display their work and requires
they also take part in staffing the
store a half-day per month. Art-
ists are then able to keep all mon-
ey for the sales of their work. He
noted this not only makes it pos-
sible for artists to sell their art-
work, but to be integrated into
the spirit of the gallery itself.
Burnside said there are still
some numbers to work out be-
fore the Pittston gallery can
open.
Burnside said he was original-
ly skeptical about opening up a
second gallery in Pittston, but
upon touring the site at 71 S.
Main St., he thought that it
would be a very appropriate spot
because of its accessibility to
foot traffic and general structure
and wall space. He also said Pitt-
stons Streetscape project will be
adding some more lighting and
doing some major renovations,
which will serve to make it an es-
pecially attractive spot for the
second gallery.
The storefront is between the
Coffe Table Restaurant and the
Open Space which will be open-
ing soon featuring a Boden
clothing outlet.
The gallerywill accept various
types of artwork including pho-
tographs, paintings, sculpture,
jewelry and even painted furni-
ture.
The visionthat bothKathleen
and I have is one of accessibility
for both local artists and the peo-
ple of Northeast Pennsylvania,
said Burnside. We want to sup-
port local artists and increase
cultural awareness.
Pittstons Downtown Manager
Rose Randazzosaid16artists are
on board, but few of them are
fromthe Pittston area. Four more
artists are needed. She encourag-
es local artists tocontact Godwin
at kathgodwin@epix.net or 970-
2787, or Burnside atccl-
carts@gmail.com.

o use a 2011expression to describe
a 1911 happening: minor league
baseball rocked in Wilkes-Barre a
century ago and Wilkes-Barre Barons
pitcher James John McCloskey was the
citys rock star.
He won 20 games in 1911, following a
17 win season in 10, and led the Barons to
a third consecutive New York State
League pennant.
McCloskey a 6-foot, 180 pound right
hander had been born on the frontier in
Laramie, Wyoming on August 20, 1882.
As the rugged, hard-drinkingsonof a Col-
orado coal-miner and with the well-
earned nickname The Wild Irishman he
was a perfect fit for the Wilkes-Barre of
1911, with its coal culture, large Irish pop-
ulation and 170 bars.
McCloskey was tagged with the nick-
name as a pitcher for the International
League Baltimore Orioles for his actions
off the field spending most of his nights
in the in the citys red light district and
onthe fieldgettingintonumerous fights
with opponents and umpires. In Toronto
in 1907 he had to be pulled off an umpire
by two policemen. As the Baltimore
American newspaper described the fight:
Macs Irish was up in a moment and the
Baltimore slab artist (a nickname for a
pitcher) went at the umpire like one pos-
sessed.
Though Wilkes-Barre might have been
seen as a demotion for a pitcher who had
pitched 12 games for the major league
Phillies in1906 and 07 and won15 for the
Orioles in 08, McCloskey embraced
Wilkes-Barre and made it his home.
In 1911 Wilkes-Barres population was
near 70,000.
The Stegmaier Brewery turned out
150,000 barrels of beer, which was
quaffed in large amounts in the citys
ubiquitous bars, many of which were like-
ly McCloskey haunts.
Public drunkenness and rampant crime
overwhelmed the citys 70 fulltime cops,
who had no authority over the 50 stores
selling guns and knives.
One such store on public square dis-
played revolvers, steel knuckles, black
jacks and stilettos in the front window. In
May alone the police made over 150 ar-
rests for serious crimes.
The streets of Wilkes-Barre were a ca-
cophony of clopping horse hooves, sput-
tering automobile engines, and clattering
trolleys battling for rights of way without
the help of traffic signals, stop signs or
traffic laws.
That spring a four-year-old boy was
killed by a grocery wagon and team in
front of his house on Washington Street; a
six-year-old was rundown by an automo-
bile in front of his house as he played with
his friends on South River; a 26-year-old
miner was struck and killed in front of the
Prospect Breaker on the road to White
Haven by a hit-and-run car which sped
away toward Wilkes-Barre at the aston-
ishing rate of 50 miles an hour.
Fires were a matter of course. Mayor
Lewis Kniffens funeral parlor and livery
stable on North Main went up in a blaze
which killed11horses and destroyed three
funeral coaches.
A spectacular series of gasoline explo-
sions and a fire at the Wilkes-Barre Motor
Transit Company on Carey Avenue de-
stroyed the building, nine motor vehicles
including two luxury Matheson touring
cars owned by a Dr. Guthrie and a dou-
ble block home.

FACTS OF
LAW
Brought to you as a paid public service by
the Law Ofces of Dominick P. Pannunzio,
294 Main Street, Dupont, 655-5541
By
Dominick P.
Pannunzio, Esq.
A recent court decision means police in Massachusetts
can no longer search a vehicle based solely on the smell
of marijuana.
***
New Jersey has a new law that requires palimony
agreements, in which people living together but not
married, make arrangements for payments after the
death of one of the couple, to be made in writing to be
recognized by a court. But a New Jersey appellate court
has ruled that the requirement for written palimony
agreements does not apply to those who fled complaints
before the law was adopted.
***
Serving liquor at wedding receptions and parties in
Michigan is going to be a bit easier now that a new law
allows caterers to serve alcohol off-site. Before the new
law, caterers with liquor licenses could only serve on their
own property. If party-goers wanted booze, they needed to
bring it themselves.
***
According to current New Hampshire law, advertising
shall not contain any reference to a happy hour except
that a happy hour schedule may be posted within the
licensed premises.
***
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that a young
man can be sentenced to life without parole for a 1998
murder he helped commit when he was 14 years old.

Pittston Area athletic teams did not
walk off the soccer field in Hughestown
Friday afternoon or Charley Trippi Stadi-
um in Yatesville Friday night as victors,
but nor were they losers.
The soccer teamcame up short 3 to1to
Dallas. The football team lost 20 to 14 in
overtime to Williamsport. Thats irrefut-
able.
But as Albert Einstein said, Not all
things that count can be counted, and not
all things that can be counted count.
Points in an athletic endeavor can be
counted. Spirit cannot.
Neither can effort.
Or support.
But, while those things cannot be
counted and do not show up on the score-
board, they cannot be disregarded.
There is a new sense of enthusiasm at
Pittston Area sporting events this fall. Ev-
eryone feels it.
The athletes seem to believe in them-
selves. And its obvious their coaches and
parents do.
Sports, especially high school sports,
are often over emphasized. But in healthy
school systems, they play a significant
role in the development of young people.
It has been our experience that schools
with sound sports programs also have
sound educational programs and sound
extra-curricular activities of all sorts.
Pittston Area appears headed in that di-
rection.
The early Greeks expounded a strong
mind and a strong body. All those striv-
ing for such goals win. Final scores have
their place, but that place is more inciden-
tal than we realize.
No wins but
no losers
Recently our family lost a husband, father, son, brother and
nephew. We wish to thank our wonderful family and friends for
their support.
We also thank the City of Pittston: the Pittston Fire Depart-
ment who was with us every step during this time (they were at
the hospital, they organized several benefits, they were with us at
the end and they are still there for our family); the Pittston City
Police Department and Pittston City ambulance and the Street
Department, where he was employed.
We thank Msgr. John Bendik, of the St. John the Evangelist
Parish community, who was there for our family and helped us
keep our faith alive.
We also want to thank the doctors and nurses at the cancer
hospital at Geisinger for their compassion and kindness.
The Richards Family
Richards Family appreciates the support and kindness

Elwood Woody Richards was aptly
named.
Like the character Woody of the Toy
Story movies, he was a gentle man of
strong character and solid values.
Greater Pittstons Woody captured
the hearts of the area as he waged a coura-
geous battle with cancer, eventually suc-
cumbing on Sept. 21 at the age of 47.
He earned his living working for the
Pittston City Street Department but he
earned everyones respect by volunteering
with the City Fire Department. He was
generous with his time and talent and
leaves a void that is hard to fill.
Rest in peace

Note: this letter was addressed to Ed Ackerman, editor, re-
garding his column about Facebook.
Dear Ed,
I have been reading your columns for years. I wont say how
many without aging myself let alone you! Anyway, I dont re-
member ever disagreeing with something you said--until now.
Youve got Facebook all wrong. Yes, some people get crazy and
bare their souls or engage in TMI (too much information), but
have you thought about the other side of the coin?
I dont remember howmanyyears its beensince I joinedFace-
book. At first, I too was reluctant. Im very careful about my
personal information and I didnt trust this social medium. Then
I moved from Pennsylvania to California. Suddenly, all my
friends (no quotations--these are my real friends) are 3000 miles
away. I cant call themevery day, but guess what? There they are
on Facebook! So I knowwhen my friends daughter scores a goal
or when my cousin needs someone to talk to. I knowthat my son
is studying for a test or going snowboarding. Of course, it works
the other way around too. I cant begin to tell you how comfort-
ing it has been to have so many family and friends to support me

I used to love rainstorms.
Really.
Rain makes me happy.
Made me happy.
Now it just scares the crap out of me. Now rain
makes me sad and cranky. Rain is the devil.
We were extremely lucky to dodge the proverbial
bulletthe water stopped a block fromour home. I
think it was my voice which created a sound barrier
that even water cannot penetrate. Everyone I know,
including my father, was not so lucky, however.
My beloved library was effectively wiped out
like a shaken-up Etch-a-Sketch. Gone. Although-
by some miracle, our bag of Dove chocolates,
hidden high above the books, survived. Who cares
if they got a little moist anduhicky, I ate them
all, post flood. Small blessings!
Although I did my small part to help clean-out
the libraryI otherwise was not personally affect-
ed.
In 1972, however, I was, supremely up-heaved
andswept-awaybythat bitch, Agnes. AndI will tell
you, the instant your nose sniffs the scent of flood
waters, like an aqua-inspired blood hound, you are
transported back to that time and place like you
never escaped.
That is a smell you never forget and it invites a
feeling of doom that you can never shake.
Thats why I cry on all of your behalf. Andthe
catastrophic scenarios continue.
I dont have to tell you about it because you are
living it. I wont insult you with my insider knowl-
edge, because I have none. Except to say that Ive
noticed a few things during flood-time that Ive
found to be of the most profound interest and in-
trigue.
For example:
Some people lose weight during a crisis. Not me.
There was so much food coming from all corners
of the borough, that it would be rude not to have my
hand out! There was food being delivered directly
to doorsteps! Its like Jenny Craig, but with carbo-
hydrates! Homemade mashed potatoes and pig-
gies? I would sell a kidney. Bring. It. On.
My father has been living with me for several
weeks now. He thinks hes an imposition, but its
almost like having another child to harass. Hes ac-
tually much easier than my kids, neater than my
husband by a country mile and best of allhe cant
hear me when Im bitching!
He is mostly the perfect houseguest, if he could
just cook, clean, iron, fold, Swiffer, sanitize and
wax my mustache. Theres still time, though. I have
hope. And enough wax to strip every hair fromev-
ery monkey at the Philadelphia Zoo.
Cleaning orifices during the flood clean-up is an
experience to behold. After plunging a Q-tip into
the deepest recesses of my ear canal (which is a
hygiene dont), guess what exited? A treeful of
Keebler elves. Its true. With Pecan Sandies, to
boot.
Also...the mystery of Jimmy Hoffa has been sol-
vedwhen I blew my nose.
I discovered the joys of wheel barrowing!
You can pack a whole lotta crap in one of those
bad boys and just wheel it away!
I shouldve used this to transport my babies back
in the day. Or my husbands golf clubs down to the
river while it was still moving swiftly and angrily.
You can fit so much more in a wheel barrowthan
a stroller. I know for a fact you can schlep about
12,000 swollen and destroyed books, including a
volume of My Next Husband Will Be a Dog into
a barrow and out to the curb in record time.
I felt like Xena the Warrior Princess. Wheel bar-
rows are very empowering.
Imtellingyouthat alongwiththat special aroma
of dried muck, sewage and aged perspirationthe
smell of Lysol will never leave my nasal cavity. I
dont care how mind-numbing the smell in the
bathroomis after my husband has been in thereI
will never again, in this lifetime, spray Lysol.
My roots! With everything thats transpired, we
chicks become immune to our usual maintenance
and upkeep. My roots look like both lanes of the
Schuylkillbut I dont care. The greasy ponytail
has made resurgence and my trusty eyeliner hasnt
left its special make-up drawer in four weeks.
I would say its liberating and cathartic, but real-
ly, I just feel like a snot sandwich.
Everyone has value. Everyone. People come out
of the muddy woodwork to help complete strang-
ers and its humbling and miraculous.
Members from churches of every denomination
banded together to aid in our cleaning and recon-
struction and neighbors who werent flooded came
in droves to offer another set of arms, legs and
heart.
Youdont feel veryluckytobe a West Pittston-ite
these days, but Ill tell you that although this com-
munity has been stained and tattered, sometimes
beyond repair, it is a community made-up of
strong, resourceful, lovely human beings.
Among the ruin and the shards of homes, you
dont have to look very far to also find something
that makes this community unique, and that is its
sense of family, strength and character. The ability
to get up and go and just get er done.
There are some bumps in the road, to be sure, but
the overall picture is one made up of the broad
strokes of cooperation and collaboration and sup-
port.
Into each life a little rain must fall.
Adisaster of any sort tests the strength of its vic-
tims. The helplessness of one of us is daunting; the
power of all of us is inimitable. My own strength
was a surprise. Although, it could have been the
power of that wheel barrow.
Or the Dove chocolates.
We may never know.

Sad precipitation
Rain or shine, Maria Heck is there to make Dis-
patch readers smile every other week in this space.
Last weeks columndiscussedthe fall vegetables that are appearing
in the vegetable aisle and are still in some farmer markets.
Some of these squash look a bit hairy and can be difficult to cut as
they are hard and round.
The spaghetti squash is one of my favorites because it is low in
calories and carbohydrates, yet takes on the flavor of sauces really
well.
This squash is a little unusual. It is shaped like a small watermelon,
but golden-yellow in color. It has a mild, nutlike flavor and when
cooked the flesh separates in strands like spaghetti.
Cooking spaghetti squash
Here is how to cook a spaghetti squash. First, purchase a 2-pound
squash or more if you like leftovers. This should be enough for two
people.
Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds.
Place the cut side down in a baking dish; add 1/4 cup of water.
Bake at 350

F for 45-60 minutes or until you can pierce the shell


easily with a fork.
Allow to cool slightly; using a fork, separate squash into strands
that resemble spaghetti.
Microwave instructions
Spaghetti squash can also be cooked in the microwave. This is the
way I like to cook it because its fast and I do not need to turn the oven
on.
First, cut it in half remove the seeds, just like you were to put it in
the oven.
Next place it upside down in a covered microwave safe dish.
Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the dish.
Microwave on high 10 to 12 minutes.
It is that easy!
Serving spaghetti squash
To serve, place 1 cup on plate, add 1/2 cup pasta.
Ladle your favorite spaghetti sauce over both.
Enjoy without the guilt of eating too much pasta! One cup contains
only 40 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrates.
Other ways to use spaghetti squash
Toss cooked spaghetti squash with diced chicken and your favorite
low fat cheese sauce, and then bake for a filling entre.
For a simple side dish, saut the spaghetti squash in two tables-
poons of olive oil and top with Parmesan cheese.
Use the cooked spaghetti squash in place of pasta in soups, salads
or casseroles.
I will be demonstrating how to cook spaghetti squash at our next
upcoming cooking series Dining with Diabetes. The program be-
gins November 1, 10 a.m. noon at the Luzerne County West Side
Annex, Forty Fort. Call 1-888-825-1701 to register.

Question #1
In 1954, Pittston
celebrated its Centen-
nial, which included
a special dinner,
pageant, parade and
carnival.
Who was the mayor
of Pittston at the time?
1954 57 Years Ago
Exeter High School formed a Glee
Club consisting of 45 juniors and se-
niors.
Under the direction of Ross Taranti-
no, the singers practiced every day to
perfect their performances of songs such
as I Believe, America and Piping
Tim of Galway.
Captain Mary C. Connors, Pittston,
was awarded the Bronze Star for merito-
rious service in military operations in
Korea supervising medical wards of the
21st Station Hospital in 1953.
Captain Connors also received the
American Theater, European Theater,
World War II Victory, Korean, United
Nations and National Defense Service
Medals for serving 20 months overseas
during World War II.
Nurses were the only military women
allowed into combat areas during this
war serving in Mobile Army Surgical
Hospitals or MASH units.
Sponsor Rudy Berretta, of Berretta
Construction, and Manager Edward
Modlesky, were very proud of their
Exeter Little League team as they took
the championship in 1954.
Members of the team were Martin
Napersteck, Charles Kutyana, Car-
men Mauriello, Earl Blossi, John
Modleskly, Leonard Vincko, Thomas
Kuharchik, Ray Fino, Louis Braccini,
Richard Davala, Mike Latzko and
Daniel Ripa Jr.
General Chairman Anthony DIorio
announced that the income remaining
after expenses from planned events that
occurred during the Pittston City Cen-
tennial celebration week totaled
$3,341.56.
According to dollartimes.com/calcula-
tor, $3,000.00 in 1954 had the same
buying power as $24,443.75 in 2011.
Annual inflation over this period was
3.75%.
1964 47 Years Ago
A steel frame that held letters identi-
fying the Lackawanna and Wyoming
Valley Railroad or Laurel Line was
removed from the location it had held
for decades.
The Laurel Line Station was located
on Market Street and the sign stood at
the corner of Market and South Main.
The demolition removed the last rem-
nant of the once busy station.
Mrs. Wilbert Lawler, co-founder and
president of United Mothers of America,
a Pittston City decency watchdog group,
led two busloads of women to the Vote
for Decency Rally held in Scranton.
The rally attended by over 2,000 peo-
ple helped initiate an ordinance against
obscenity in Scranton.
Rev. Constantine Siconoffi, Msgr.
Matthew Boylan, Gino Marchetti, Victor
Brandolino and Charles J. Golden were
among several men of St. Cecilias
Church in Exeter who wanted to do
something nice for the nuns serving the
parish.
The men planned to solicit homes of
parishioners to raise funds to purchase a
car for the sisters personal use.
1974 37 Years ago
Pittston Area School District Super-
visor of Nurse and Health Services Ur-
sula Burke, RNMS, announced that the
Pennsylvania Department of Health
mandated that all children entering
school must be immunized.
Epidemics of diphtheria, tetanus,
polio, and German measles had been on
the rise and the number of children
vaccinated on the decline.
Mandatory vaccination laws were first
enacted in Massachusetts with the small
pox vaccination law in 1809.
Currently immunization for eight
specific diseases is required for children
entering school: tetanus, diphtheria,
polio, measles, mumps, German mea-
sles, hepatitis B, and chickenpox.
The new building site for the Greater
Pittston Ambulance Association was
chosen, but there was a lot of prep-
aration work to do.
Volunteers Matt Martinelli, who
operated his payloader, and Leonard
Cumbo supervised the project. Frank
DePhillips, Frank Castellino, Mr. and
Mrs. George Nagy, Frank Rizzo,
Louis Alexander and Anthony Fonzo
along with Leo Latona, Joseph Marti-
no, Joseph Bernardi, Eddie Kaminski,
and John Oliver, donated their services
to expedite site preparations.
According to the City of Pittston Web-
site, The Ambulance Association was
formed in 1952 by community-minded
volunteers, who recognized the need for
professional care in the Pittston area.
The Association began with one am-
bulance unit that, for many years, was
housed in the basement garage of City
Hall. Currently the Association operates
Medic 29 an advanced life support unit
that is one of the first in northern Lu-
zerne County.
Workmen from Frati Sand and Stone
of Wyoming began grading a ten-acre
tract of land in Hughestown.
The borough planned a five-tier pro-
ject for a community park which would
include football and baseball fields,
basketball and tennis courts and play-
ground facilities.
New playground equipment was in-
stalled this past July. The boroughs
picnic in the park is held annually at the
location named in honor of Robert W.
Yaple.
Question #2
In 1974, an article in the Sunday Dis-
patch contained the statement, Maybe
Greater Pittston should get on the band-
wagon.
What was the writer referring to?
1984 27 Years Ago
Pittston native Captain Fred R. De-
mech Jr., US Navy, was honored for his
service in the White House. Presented
the Distinguished Service Medal by
Secretary of Defense Casper Wein-
berger, Demech was honored for out-
standing service as Executive Director
for the Presidents Foreign Intelligence
Advisory Board from1981 to 1984.
Other medals bestowed Captain De-
mech are Legion of Merit, Defense
Meritorious Service, Navy Meritorious
and Navy Commendation. Captain De-
mech served in the Pacific, Atlantic and
Indian Oceans and all continents except
Australia. President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower created the Presidents Board of
Consultants on Foreign Intelligence
Activities in 1956.
President John F. Kennedy later re-
named it the Presidents Foreign In-
telligence Advisory Board on May 4,
1961.
Kathy Forlenza, president of the
West Pittston Lioness Club, and officers
Betty Kasulanis, Marge Burns, Gail
Devers, Sandy Cassarella, Louise
Hood, Doris Brinser, Mildred Bain-
bridge and Ceil Freed had planned an
ambitious year of service.
Club focus was to promote education-
al programs and provide health equip-
ment for those in need. The group host-
ed an eye bank fundraiser and donated

1994 17 Years Ago
Today is the 17th anniversary of the
unveiling of the six-ton granite monu-
ment dedicated to Leonard C. Insalaco
II, two year veteran of West Pittston
Hose Company #1 and six year veteran,
John F. Lombardo, fire captain with
Niagara Engine Company #2.
Both men lost their lives as they
bravely fought side by side at a fire on
North Main Street.
Members from both hose companies
formed a benefit committee. Louis
Calabrese and Joe Jumper, were
among the initial organizers of the pro-
ject. The monument, which is located on
Kennedy Boulevard, is less than 300 feet
from the location of the fire that claimed
their lives.
Since then, the former Water Street
Bridge, located near the monument, has
been renamed Firefighters Memorial
Bridge.
The First Valley Bank, West Pittston
offered an exhibition of artwork created
by deceased residents of the area. Art-
work included paintings by Charles B.
Zimmerman, 1900-1994; wood sculp-
ture by Raymond M. Pambianco,
1929-1994; contemporary artist Joseph
A. Reina, 1932-1993; Filomeno Arge-
nio 1885-1968; Lawrence Argenio,
1917-1964 and Paul J. Argenio, 1924-
1990.
It was written of these men, To re-
member artists of the past is mans way
of preserving history and it is with deep
gratitude that these men are remembered
for their great contribution to the art
world.

Answer #2
An article in the October 1974 issue of the Sunday Dispatch
entitled Festivals and Fairs Everywhere but Here stated:
Festivals have sprung up all over the Midwest.
Many attract tourist dollars and get communities on the map.
They bring people together, and create a worthwhile tradition.
Anything that can bring pleasure and clean fun to communities
adds to their attractiveness.
Maybe Greater Pittston should get on the bandwagon.
Today, many churches, organizations and fair committees spon-
sor numerous events each year in the Greater Pittston Area.
The Pittston Tomato Festival celebrated its 28th anniversary in
August of 2011.
The May 2011 issue of Parade Magazine highlighted the Pittston
Tomato Festival in its national publication.

on killed two cows and a horse.
But there was respite fromall the chaos
and mayhem.
The Lehigh Valley Railroad ran Sunday
excursions to New York for $2.50. The
Times Leader advertised a cruise to Ber-
muda fromNewYork City on the Bermu-
dian a new ship equipped with electric
fans and wireless telegraphy starting at
$20, two weeks pay for the average labor-
er lucky enough to have a full time job.
The Polis Theater brought in top vaude-
ville acts like Del Franco and his trained
troupe of monkeys, dogs and ponies; and
Lolo, an American Indian woman who
did blindfolded feats of mental telepathy,
jugging, and sharpshooting.
Then, across the Market Street Bridge
on a verdant patch of green in the state-of-
the art DiamondParkfolks couldget away
from it all and watch their Wild Irishman
lead the two-time champion Wilkes-
Barre Barons to yet another pennant.
Diamond Park was only two years old
in1911having opened in May of 1909 five
days before the opulent new Luzerne
County Courthouse.
The park was owned and built by the
team officers President James Monks,
Secretary Ellis and Treasurer George
Stegmaier and was considered the finest
Class B park in the country.
The 1909 attendance of 121,000 was
considered a record for Class B Leagues
and it had fallen off only slightly by 1911.
McCloskey had been signed by the
Phillies after the 1905 season when he
won18 games and pitched 333 innings for
Omaha inthe class AWesternLeague, the
equivalent of AAA today.
His major league career was brief, per-
haps undermined by his hard drinking as
he was often described after a poor outing
as being out of shape or conversely as a
top-flight pitcher when right.
In 1906, splitting time with Providence
of the Eastern League and the Phillies, he
won 15 for Providence and was 3-2 with
the Phillies with a 2.85 ERA. While
McCloskeys hard partying might have
soured the Phillies on him, his reputation
didnt bother the Eastern League owners.
As the Baltimore American newspaper
put it in a 1907 story, Several clubs are
hot after McCloskey who was considered
the best pitcher in the Eastern League last
season.
In June of 1907 Baltimore manager
Jack Dunn went to Philadelphia deter-
mined to buy McCloskey for the Orioles.
Fromthe Baltimore American: It was no
easy task to land McCloskey for it was not
until he made a very attractive offer did
the manager of the Phillies consent to let
Dunn have the twirler at a fancy figure.
The fancy figure was probably
around $2500.
McCloskey won 14 and 15 games for
the Orioles in 07 and 08. In July of 09
Dunn and the Orioles loaned McCloskey
to the Wilkes-Barre Barons with the right
of recall on demand.
In his first start for the Barons McClos-
keys famous temper exploded and he got
tossed from the game in the second in-
ning.
In his next two starts he threw shutouts
allowing only five hits combined. He was
3-1 on August 2 when the Orioles, facing
three consecutive double headers, re-
called him. Barons Manager Kettridge
lobbiedhardtoget himback, but McClos-
key finished the season in Baltimore.
In 1910 McCloskey came back to the
Barons, now under new manager Bill
Clymer, with no strings and won17 games
including a no-hitter against Scranton as
the Barons won a second straight pennant.
He also won an exhibition game in
Wilkes-Barre against the world champion
Philadelphia As, albeit Philly used only
three regular players.
In 1911 McCloskey won 20. His home
starts regularly drew an extra 200 to 300
fans to Diamond Park, many of them
women. While New York State League
rules set player salaries at $150 per month
there were ways to pad that and a popular
player like McCloskey could also count
onperks like reducedrent, free suits, over-
looked bar tabs and stabbed dinner
checks.
After the Barons clinched the pennant
in early September of 1911, manager
Clymer gave McCloskey the last two
weeks of with pay and the fans presented
him with an inscribed gold-plated pocket
watch.
McCloskey went back home to Cripple
Creek, Colorado, after the 1911 season,
but right after New Years Day he came
back to Wilkes-Barre after seven days rid-
ing trains.
Though McCloskey declared himself
fit and predicted a fourth consecutive
pennant for the Barons in1912, the season
turned out to be a disaster.
After a win on opening day on April 26,
McCloskey got hammered in Bingham-
ton on May 5. He didnt pitch again until
May 28. Claiming arm and finger inju-
ries, he missed most of June.
He made a comeback on July 5 where
he showed his old form, but had a run-in
with Clymer and was suspended for two
weeks.
Clymer gave him 10 days to get in
shape after the suspension, but when he
reported in poor condition he was sus-
pended again and fined $100.
When McCloskey heard Clymer wasnt
going to pay him for the 10 days, he went
crazy. Duringa game inDiamondPark, he
went across the field and sat in the Elmira
dugout shouting curses at Clymer until
the umpire had him removed.
Then he went to the clubhouse looking
for the business manager and suffering
from an overdose of liquor, according to
a newspaper story, tried to break down the
door.
Clymer suspended McCloskey indefi-
nitely and declared he would never wear
the Wilkes-Barre uniform again.
But in 1913 Clymer was gone and new
manager Bill Noonan gave McCloskey
another shot.
It was reported that McCloskey was
working like a Trojan, was taking care
of himself and was in better shape than he
had been in years.
Nonetheless, he was released by the
Barons on May 27 and signed by Bing-
hamton.
He lobbied for a chance to pitch against
the Barons, but that didnt happen and
Binghamton released him on July 5.
In1914 the Wild Irishman was tamed by
a teenaged Wilkes-Barre girl. On April 15
he married 19-year-old Kathleen Dona-
hue. He was 30.
His bride was the daughter of Squire
John Donohue, the citys third ward jus-
tice. Renowned for his unique and color-
ful decisions, he once settled a dispute be-
tween to women over ownership of a fe-
male duck by having the women bring
their male ducks to court to see which
duck would go to the female.
McCloskey and his bride bought a
house on North Empire Street. In 1916
they had a daughter. Though on his mar-
riage application McCloskey listed his
occupationas ballplayer, he was done as
a professional pitcher in1914. He got a job
with the railroad and pitched for the Boyle
Brothers, a top amateur team, hurling a
no-hitter with nine strikeouts against
Newtown.
Laid off by the railroad, McCloskey got
his miners certificate and got a job at the
Baltimore Tunnel in Wilkes-Barres East
End.
At 6:50 on the morning of June 5, 1919
McCloskey was in a trip of mine cars de-
scending into the Baltimore Tunnel when
one of the cars hit a dangling live wire set-
ting off an explosion of seven kegs, about
300 pounds, of powder.
Ninety-three men were killed blown
apart, burned, smothered by gas or
drowned in a trench of sulfur water in
the second deadliest mine accident in an-
thracite history. James John McCloskey
was among them.
In the newspaper the next morning, a
miner named Kehoe described what he
saw as he scrambled to escape:
He struggled on when he encountered a
man who held out his hand in appeal to
him and found it to be McCloskey, the
baseball player.
He had been frightfully burned and his
tongue was so swollen that he could not
talk, although he made an effort to do so.
He said he took hold of him and at-
tempted to carry himout but he could not.
He said McCloskey was near death but
had the strength to give him his brother-
hood book and papers in it.
At this point McCloskey became deliri-
ous and grabbed Kehoe by the throat and
it was with considerable effort that he was
able to pry the mans fingers loose.
Like many of the men killed, McClos-
key was buried in St. Marys Cemetery in
Hanover.
As though his death wasnt tragic
enough, there was a gruesome footnote.
Two weeks after the disaster, McClos-
keys gold-plated pocket watch, which he
always carriedwithhim, was foundbypo-
lice in a jewelry store where it had been
pawned.
The watch had been a gift fromhis fans
in 1911 and was inscribed: James John
McCloskey, pitcher for the Wilkes-Barre
Barons, which won the pennant in the
years 1910-1911.
Jack Smiles, associate editor of the Sun-
day Dispatch, has authored three books
on baseball players fromGreater Pittston
who are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of
Fame in Cooperstown, NewYork: Hughie
Jennings, of Pittston, Bucky Harris of
Hughestown, and Big Ed Walsh, of
Plains.

The three multicolored Y
signs adorning the front of the
Greater Pittston YMCAon Main
Street in Pittston are the first in-
dication that growth and change
are beginning at the Pittston or-
ganization.
The subtle
improvements
come with new
Executive Di-
rector Craig
Lukatch who is
striving to
make the YM-
CA and its em-
ployees more
visible in the
community
and the Main
Street facility
more aestheti-
cally pleasing
for members.
We are sit-
uated in the
heart of Pitt-
ston, but our
building was
not distinguishable as a YMCA
from the Main Street, he said.
The new Y signs not only
make us more visible in the com-
munity where we have long
standing roots, but also promote
the new YMCA branding image
that is taking place across the na-
tion.
The improvements do not end
with the exterior of the YMCA
building.
Lukatch invites members and
area residents to step inside the
Greater Pittston YMCA to see
the changes unfolding. Members
will now be greeted by YMCA
staff wearing name badges with
the new Y logo.
The badges step up security in
the building and make employ-
ees more visible and accessible
to members.
We have multiple staff mem-
bers on hand throughout the day
and evening and I wanted them
to be visible to members, he
said. If there is a question or
concern, members need to know
who they can talk too. We want
tomake the members time at the
Yenjoyable andwe want toexcel
in customer service.
The Wellness Center at the
Pittston Facility is also getting a
redesign and some new addi-
tions.
We are redesigning the space
for a better flow and a more aes-
thetically pleasing appearance,
said Lukatch.
Our long termgoal is to move
the program office and a fitness
attendant station in the Wellness
Center.
Program/Fitness Director Kel-
ly McCabe plans to staff the
Wellness Center with fitness at-
tendants during peak hours. Stu-
dents interested in doing an in-
ternship at the YMCA as a fit-
ness attendant should contact
McCabe at 570-655-2255 ext.
104.
The fitness attendants will
not only keep the center clean
and organized, but they will be
on hand to help new members
learn how to use the fitness ma-
chines, helping them to feel
more comfortable and at ease,
she said.
Lukatch noted that improve-
ments are also being made to the
organizations Multipurpose
Room which is home to the
Child Care Departments School
Age Program.
New tables and chairs have
been purchased with funding
from a JcPenny Grant, said
Child Care Director Suzanne Al-
ba. The newfurniture will allow
ample space for youths to do
their homework and participate
in games and crafts.
Next on the list: a new life-
guard station in the facilitys
newly refurbished indoor pool
area.
Plans for the lifeguard station
are underway and soon life-
guards will wear lifeguard t-
shirts and carry buoys while on
duty, said Lukatch.
Again, we want our life-
guards to be more visible to
swimmers, giving everyone in
the pool area an added sense of
safety.
The Greater Pittston YMCAis
located at 10 North Main St. in
Pittston.

YO U R O P I N I O N
andmyhusbandwhenwe recent-
ly had a setback.
None of this would have been
possible if it wasnt for Face-
book.
Another great part of Face-
book is the ability to connect
with old friends, classmates and
relatives that you havent seen in
years. I amclose to my cousin in
Florida. Before we found each
other on Facebook, we didnt
talk at all.
I have a young cousin who is
an entertainer and I am able to
keep up on his career (and him)
on Facebook. In fact, I met him
through Facebook.
I would never know him if I
didnt find him there.
Facebook also has given me
the opportunity to make new
friends.
Imnot sure if you knowFred-
dy Loquasto, but his son Jonny is
a comedian in Los Angeles.
Through Facebook I was able to
connect with him, go to his show
and meet him. Its always great to
find people from Northeastern
PA living near you in Southern
California.
Sometimes I just go on Face-
book to look at pictures of
friends and family. Its so nice to
be able to keep up with people
this way. Im always surprised
when I see kids my sons went to
school with and they are grown
men now. Its comforting to
knowthat somanypeople I knew
for so many years are just a
mouse click away.
One more thing, Eddo you
realize what an important part
Facebook played in the recent
flood? Everyone was able to
keep in contact with each other,
share vital information and com-
fort and console each other. A
prime example was Mayor Cas-
sandra Coleman from Exeter.
She updated her Facebook page
consistently through the flood
and was able to disseminate in-
formation to the public quickly
and easily. People could ask her
(or
others) questions and she
could quickly get help for some-
one in need. I spent hours scour-
ing Facebook to check on friends
and family. Facebook provided a
way for thousands of people to
send positive light, prayers and
love to thousands in trouble dur-
ing the flood.
The flood was unique, but
people reaching out to help other
people through Facebook are
not.
This is common. Facebook
has allowed the whole world to
become a community. It has al-
lowed people who live on oppo-
site sides of the world to become
friends. It has enhanced the way
we communicate and I think
thats a good thing! I really think
youshouldgive Facebookanoth-
er look.

Gouldsboro Teenager, Maria-
na Azevedo, got involved as a
volunteer to help elderly dis-
abled man Tom Bauman as his
family sought help to clean up
his Tunkhannock home that was
devastated by flooding from TS
Lee with water to his roof.
Mariana and her Mom Margy
with the help of Carl Pacholec,
Alan Nawrocki, and Calvin Pa-
cholec all came to help the fam-
ily of Tom Bauman. She had a
community service project to do
for her Gouldsboro Soccer Team
and could have chosen a lesser
feat. They logged onto the disas-
ter assistance web site where the
family had posted a help request.
Mariana saw the ad and knew it
was the one she wanted to help
with.
The Baumans needed help
and after a phone conversation
the families met at the flooded
home on Black Diamond Beach
Rd. Tunkhannock. Immediately
clean-up started, some family
members Bruce, Cody and Bru-
cie Rydzy; Jeff Hoover &friends
John and Anita Williams all vol-
unteered their time to help clean
out the home. Judy fromthe vol-
unteer group from the Duryea
VFW provided masks, gloves,
water and energy bars to use.
We sincerely thank you all for
your help, time and concern. You
have restored our faith in the
community.

On Friday, September 30, at
midnight, I received a call at
home, my storefront window
was broken.
As I live 45 minutes away, I
was extremely worried about
the safety and condition of my
store, Sabatelles Market on S.
Main Street, Pittston.
As my son, Jason, and I
arrived we were pleased to see
the Pittston Police in front of
our store and a few neighbors
waiting until we arrived to se-
cure the window and our
building.
We are fortunate to have
such an excellent police force
and are so proud to be part of
the Greater Pittston communi-
ty.
A sincere Thank You.

Mrs. Mary Louise Degnan,
R.N., B.S.N., would like to an-
nounce her candidacy for the
Wyoming Area Board of Educa-
tion.
Mary Louise is joining the
"A+ Team" ticket as an Inde-
pendent Party candidate as she
shares the same interests, values
and ethics presented by the cur-
rent teamof candidates whichin-
clude Dr. Estelle Campenni,
Mrs. Beth Gober Mangan and
Mr. Carl Yorina.
Mary Louise is a life long resi-
dent of the Wyoming Area
School District.
She is the daughter of the late
Stanley and Louise Korzeniew-
ski of Luzerne Avenue in West
Pittston.
A Summa Cum Laude gradu-
ate of Wyoming Area in 1978,
she continued her education at
Bloomsburg State College and
received her Bachelor of Science
degree in Nursing with the dis-
tinction of Summa Cum Laude
in 1982. Mary Louise began
practicing nursing at Wilkes-
Barre General Hospital in 1982.
During her 29 years of em-
ployment, Mary Louise held
both staff and managerial posi-
tions.
Mary Louise served on the
Policy and Procedure Commit-
tee, performed employee evalua-
tions, developed and implement-
ed nursing forms, performed au-
dits and functioned as a Nursing
Supervisor for the hospital, both
managing and staffing the work
force.
Mary Louise also is a past
member of PASNAP, the regis-
tered nurses bargaining union.
She is currently employed at
Kindred Hospital Wyoming Val-
ley as an Infusion Therapist and
is also employed by Heartland
Home Care Hospice Services
and Compassionate Home Care

The capability to resolve prob-
lems has always been a part of
Mary Louises professional and
personal life. Her belief is that
open minds and respectful ex-
change of ideas and information
will lead to changes and adapta-
tion to the challenges facing the
District in the future.
Mary Louise attributes her
faith and dedication to family as
the tools that provide to her suc-
cess in her current desire to serve
on the Board of Education. Be-
ing a professional nurse, she is
aware that education is a process
that includes multiple levels of
cooperation, including educa-
tors, students and parents. En-
suring that our children receive
an education that includes the
development of each student to
their fullest potential in a safe
and comfortable environment
will be her goal.
Mary Louise resides in
Wyoming with her husband,
Louis Peter Sr. and two children,
son Louis Peter Jr., a freshman at
East Stroudsburg University and
daughter Serra Louise, a junior
at Wyoming Area.
As her family has always been
her first priority, Mary Louise
looks forward to serving all the
families of Wyoming Area

proud to do so.

Sports
Some guys go fishing. Others
hunt. Chuck Anderika races
funny cars.
In the Top Fuel racing world
of the National Hot Rod Associ-
ation (NHRA), most race teams
are professionally owned and
operated. But the Duryea-based
Anderika Race Team is an inde-
pendent one, and racing is just a
hobby for the veteran car owner
and his crew.
A successful hobby.
The Duryea resident along
with his crew of brother and
driver John Anderika of Wyom-
ing, fuel chief Frank Kalinowski
of Ringtown, and crew mem-
bers Ron Pesontini and Billy
Wruble of Duryea, and Kyle
Wruble of Suscon advanced
their East Coast Auto Electric
Top Alcohol Funny Car to the
Uni-Select Auto Plus NHRA
Nationals Funny Car semifinals
last weekend at the Maple Grove
Raceway outside of Reading.
The national event will be
shown today at 3 p.m. on
ESPN2.
It is basically a hobby, but it
is also a competitive sport, said
the 60-year old owner of East
Coast Auto Electric which
builds alternators and starters at
its location in Duryea. We have
fun with it.
The Anderika Race Team has
more than just fun. The group
has had a successful season, fin-
ishing the 2011season in the Top
25 of Top Alcohol Funny Car
points in the entire country.
At Maple Grove, John Ande-
rika drove the East Coast Funny
Car to wins over two top-five
cars in the country with wins
over Mickey Ferro and Tony
Bartone in the first two rounds.
In the semis, the Anderika Race
Team turned in its best time of
the weekend with a 5.58 e.t. at
254 mph.
We have been racing this car
since 2006, and this is our sec-
ond time in the semifinals
first time at Maple Grove, said
Chuck Anderika. We have pro-
gressed fromyears ago and kept
moving up in class. The only
thing left is Nitro. But that is for
the professionals.
Anderika refers to the race
teams that run Top Alcohol Fun-
ny Cars for a living. According
to the veteran racer, many dont
have to go to work on Mon-
days. Anderika owns one of the
few independent teams among
the 80 Top Alcohol Funny Car
teams on the circuit.
We have been on ESPN a
number of times before, and it is
always is a good feeling to get as
far as we did when you start with
23 competitive cars especially
as an independent, said Ande-
rika. A lot of the cars we are
competing against are spon-
sored cars. We are running
against some big bucks, some
millionaires. The guy who won
the race last weekend is spon-
sored by a country. Imagine that.
At Englishtown (NJ) we fin-
ished fourth. The three guys
ahead of us were sponsored by a
country, a billionaire and a mul-
ti-millionaire.

Dispatch Staff
The East Coast Auto Electric Top Alcohol Funny Car is seen at the starting line before its second-
round race at the Uni-Select Auto Plus NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading.
Defending district and state
champion Brandon Matthews of
Pittston Area was one of only
two Wyoming Valley Confer-
ence players among the eight
boys andfour girls whoqualified
for the PIAA East Regional Oct.
17 at Golden Oak Golf Club in
Fleetwood last week at the Dis-
trict 2 Golf Championships at
Elmhurst Country Club.
Matthews shot 37-36-39 (112)
to finish fifth overall. Holy Re-
deemers Mariano Medico was
the other WVCplayer to qualify,
losing in a one-hole playoff for
the district title with champion
Ryan Brown of Scranton Prep.
A total of 82 boys played 18
holes to get into the top15 scores
before playing nine more to de-
termine the district title and the
regional qualifiers.
Matthews matched Medicos
73 to enter the extra nine one
stroke behind Brown and Greg
Reeves of Lakeland.
Before long, Matthews went
from trying to defend his district
title to just wanting to be sure he
protected a chance to defend his
state championship.
Three-putts on 2, 3 and 5 and a
wildly long approach shot on 6
changed his goals.
I thought, If you dont birdie
one of the next two holes, youre
not goingtomake it, Matthews
said. On 8, I hit two good shots.
It like having a 2000-pound
weight lifted off my shoulders.
Matthews used his birdie-par
finish to wind up in a three-way
tie for third, three shots behind
Brown and Medico.
Brown raced out to the early
lead. He started on 2 and had
birdies there, as well as at 5, 6, 8
and 12. He was 3-under just sev-
en holes into the day.
The tournament, however,
lasted nine-and-a-half hours for

Nick OBrien and is getting
used to spending a lot of time in
the endzone.
However, it wasnt on offense
that the Wyoming Area all-pur-
pose back dazzled fans on Friday
night. Rather it was defense and
special teams that OBrienusedto
steal the show as he and his War-
rior teammates were able to shut-
down the Meyers offense on their
waytoa 44-17victoryina Wyom-
ing Valley Conference Division
2A game on the turf at Wilkes-
Barre Memorial Stadium.
OBrien scored four times,
twice on offense and once on de-
fense and special teams, as the
Warriors jumped out to a 44-3
halftime lead and then coasted as
the Green Machine defense held
the Mohawks to just 67 yards in
the first half, helping the offense
start 7-of-8 possessions in Meyers
territory.
"(Nicks playmaking ability) is
contagious," said Wyoming Area
coach Randy Spencer. "Hes
bringing his teammates with him,
and its not just him. Hes got a lot
of other kids hungrytomakeplays
nowandtheyvebeenabletomake
someplays andtheir confidenceis
growing as well."
As usual, OBrien got the ball
moving for the Warriors early
when his first touch resulted in
him running for 20 yards into the
Mohawk end of the field. From
there, he went for six more before
Matt Kintz ran for 10 yards to the
11-yard line. Jeff Skursky went for
eight, one and one before Kintz
lowered his shoulder and plowed
his way through a pile and into the
endzone for a 1-yard score to put
Wyoming Area ahead, 7-0, less
than three minutes into the game
after theextra-point byAJ Lenkai-
tis.
With the Mohawks facing a
third-and-8 fromtheir own 22, the
Meyers quarterback Teaguen La-
batch dropped back and lofted a
pass over the middle. OBrienwas
waiting.

Brown and Medico and nearly 10 for
those involved in a playoff for the final
state berths. A sluggish final nine was
played in strong gusting winds and dip-
ping temperatures before the playoffs
finished under the moonlight.
Matthews made it by using his short
game to offset a poor ball-striking round
in the first 18, then hitting the shots nec-
essary to counter his putting troubles in
the final nine.
In the first 18, I hit the ball atrocious,
like the slump I was in (back) in August,
Matthews said.
North Poconos Ken Sames, who tied
for third in the state championship last
year, fell one shot short of the playoff.
Courtney Melvin of Wyoming Area
tied for eighth for the best finish by a
WVC girl. Melvin shot 46-49 (95). Da-
nielle Dalessandro of Scranton Prep won
the event with a 40-37 (77).
Matt Carroll of Pittston Area shot 81to
miss the first cut by just two strokes.
Wyoming Areas Nick Rydzewski,
who finished eighth in the WVC quali-
fier, carded an 85, while Old Forges Co-
rey Palma fired an 89.
Pittston Areas CJ Lynch shot 91 and
Ryan Tracy turned in a 92.

It took just 15 plays for the Old Forge
offense to take control of its Lackawan-
na Football Conference Division III
opener with Montrose on Friday night
at Meteors Stadium. It took just one for
the Warren Welsh and the Blue Devils
defense to put the game out of reach.
Welsh returned an interception for
Old Forges fourth touchdown of the
opening quarter as the Blue Devils
rolled over Montrose, 45-6, to keep the
Meteors winless and move atop the di-
vision standings.
The Blue Devils scored on just its
third play from scrimmage as Brian
Bubba Tomasetti sprinted 19 yards to
the pylon for a 6-0 lead just 1:13 into
the game. The score was set up by a
22-yard strike from quarterback Colin
Carey to wideout Dave Argust on first
down, and a bruising 12-yard run by
tailback Lou Febbo as Old Forge (1-0
LFC, 4-2 overall) picked up first downs
on its first three snaps.
The defense did not waste any time
getting in gear either, as sophomore
middle linebacker Jorden Sekol made
stops on first and second down before
the Blue Devils front four forced an in-
completion on third down. Sekol led
the Big Blue Wrecking Crew with sev-
en tackles on the night, including four
for a loss and a sack. All told, Old Forge
recorded 13 TFLs on the night against
the inept Montrose offense.
Pressure on the ensuing Montrose
punt forced just a 5-yard punt, and Old
Forge took over on the Meteors 34 with
8:59 on the first-quarter clock. Three
plays later, Febbo started right, cut
back left, and sprinted to the endzone
for a 21-yard touchdown. Carey hit
sophomore tight end Shane Schuback
for the two-point conversion, and Old
Forge led14-0 with 7:58 left in the first.
Another three-and-out series by
Montrose resulted in a 9-yard punt, and
once again Old Forge had outstanding
field position to begin its third drive of
the night.
The Blue Devils gained two first
downs to the Montrose 13, but the Me-
teors stopped Febbo for a 4-yard loss
before sacking Carey for a 13-yard loss
to set up third-and-27 from the Mon-
trose 30.
But Old Forge proved its metal as Ca-
rey scrambled out of the pocket before
jetting down the Blue Devils sideline
all the way to the endzone for the third
touchdown of the game. Matt Mancu-
sos kick was short, but Old Forge was
in command, 20-0, with 3:12 on the
clock.
Montrose gained its first, first down
in its ensuing possession, but after Se-
kol and Tony DeSando stopped Mon-
trose running back Nick Ely on first
down for no gain, Welsh picked off Jor-
dan Dibbles pass in the flat off a de-
flection and followed some key blocks
to paydirt for the 49-yard touchdown
return. Mancusos kick was true, and
the Blue Devils led 27-0 with 38 sec-
onds left in the opening stanza.
The defensive domination continued
as Montrose netted minus-4 yards on
its next possession as Sekol and crew
harassed the Meteors in the backfield

the pass at the 39-yard line. He
then raced to his left and blazed
past everyone on his way for his
first touchdown of the night, giv-
ing the Warriors a 13-0 lead with
7:21left in the first quarter.
Meyers then used a big run by
Labatch and a personal foul on
WAto dig the ball deep into War-
riors territory. But the Wyoming
Area defense stood strong and
held the Mohawks to a field goal
cutting the lead to13-3.
Starting on their own 42 after a
short kickoff, OBriendroppedthe
ball into Justin Langdons basket
on a nice deep post pattern for 28-
yards. Two plays later, OBrien hit
Cody Schmitz on a quick out and
Schmitzwasabletocut it backinto
the middle going for 17 yards to
the 10-yard line.
Ahmad Bouie then capped the
drive, taking a pitch to the left, be-
fore leaping over a defender and
sprinting to the goal line where he
took a big hit but was able to fall
intothe endzone for the score. The
two-point conversion was good
whenOBrienrolledtohis left and
walkedthe ball in, givingthe War-
riors a 21-3 lead with 2:08 left in
the first quarter.
The WA defense forced a turn-
over-on-downs to start the second
quarter, and the offense used six-
plays toget theball totheMohawk
15-yard line, highlighted by a 28-
yard scamper by Bouie. But WA
was held to a 32-yard Lenkaitis
field goal the first of the fresh-
mans young career - pushing the
lead to 24-3 with 9:28 left in the
half.
The defense again forced
Meyers to punt but the offense did
not evenhavetosteponthefieldto
score.
OBrien fielded the punt on the
right sideline at the 19 and started
sprinting to his left. He got to the
edge near the opposite hashmark
and when he did, he turned on his
burners and started sprinting past
helpless defenders. Eighty-one
yards later, theWarriors hada31-3
lead with 5:29 left in the half.
Three minutes later, OBrien
fielded another punt off the
bounce at the Mohawk 35-yar-
dline. He used a few good blocks
to race down the sideline and Su-
perman dive over a defender into
theendzonebut hewasruledout at
the five-yard line. Two-plays later,
lined up at quarterback, OBrien
called his own number from one-
yardout for theTDanda38-3lead.
The ensuing possession for the
Mohawks went backwards and
they were forced to punt as the
Warrior Dwas in the backfield on
every play. The punt rolled out of
boundsat the20with23.6seconds
left, givingOBrienandthe explo-
sive Warrior offense time to do
more damage.
The first play saw OBrien hit
Schmitz in the flat and Schmitz
picked up some extra yards when
he juked the first defender then hit
the second with a stiff arm, before
being dragged down to the two-
yard line. A bad snap to OBrien
forced himto scramble to pick the
ball up off the ground before he
calmly hit a wide-open Schmitz in
the endzone with 6.5 seconds left
pushing the lead to 44-3.
The Warriors defense held the
Mohawks to back-to-back four-
and-outs to start the second half,
however theoffenseturnedtheball

A furious fourth quarter
comeback went for naught as
Pittston Area lost to William-
sport in overtime, 20-14, in a
Wyoming Valley Conference af-
fair on Friday night at Charley
Trippi Stadium in Yatesville.
The Patriots came out strong
with their ground attack to start
the night, moving the ball inside
Millionaires territory before
facing a fourth-and-1 from the
31-yard line with nine minutes
remaining in the first quarter.
First-year head coach Mike
Barrett kept his offense on the
field and had quarterback An-
thony Schwab keep the snap and
bulldoze his way through the
line for just enough for the first
down. Schwabs strong legs
proved to be huge, because on
the very next play freshman run-
ning back Kyle Gattuso broke
free of the Millionaires defense
for a 30-yard touchdown. Chris
Musto added the PAT and the
Patriots led 7-0 with 8:23 re-
maining in the first quarter.
The Patriots first touchdown
of the night seemed to fire up the
Millionaires offense as they
came out on the very next drive
and took the lead.
Williamsport quarterback Sa-
diq Burkholder connected with
SamPerson for a 46-yard touch-
down reception. The Million-
aires decided to try the two-
point conversion and it paid off
as Devin Miller took the half-
back pitch and ran to the far cor-
ner of the end zone. The Wil-
liamsport lead was 8-7 with 7:25
remaining in the first quarter.
After both teams provided
some mid-quarter offensive
fireworks in the first, they failed
to score again until the fourth
quarter.
The Millionaires found the
end zone with 3:15 remaining in
the final quarter of regulation as
Miller broke loose for a 28-yard
jaunt on first-and-10 from the
Patriots 30. After the Patriots
were then called for an illegal
substitution moving the line of
scrimmage to the one-yard line,
Williamsport opted for the quar-
terback sneak and it paid off as
Burkholder pushed his way into
the end zone.
The Millionaires could have
attempted the extra point which,
if converted would have given
Williamsport a 16-7 lead. How-
ever, they decided to go for the
two-point conversion for the
second time in the game. The
play was the same, but the result
was much different as Miller
was crushed before getting to
the end zone.
Stopping the Millionaires at-
tempt for the two-point conver-
sion proved to be huge for the
Patriots as the result kept the
score within reach at 14-7.
The Patriots began their game
tying drive on the 40, because
the Millionaires kicker kept it on
the ground to keep the ball away
from the Patriots return trio of
Jordan Houseman, Kyle Gattu-
so, and Ron Dellisio. Joe Giam-
bra dove on the ball on the 40
and the Patriots began their
drive.
Pittston Area ran into trouble
as they were faced with fourth-
and-inches from the 49, but
Schwab again maneuvered his
way through the line gaining the
first down. He then found
Houseman for a 12-yard recep-
tion for another first down and
the Patriots were in business.
Schwab completed yet anoth-
er pass for a first down on
fourth-and-3 from the 30 yard
line before finding Houseman
again for five yards. The senior
signal-caller then commanded
his offense to the line of scrim-
mage where he spiked the ball
stopping the clock at 1:06.
When Schwab was on his way
to get the play call from Barrett,
a Williamsport player blatantly
tripped him right in front of the
referee. The flag was thrown
and the Patriots now had a first-
and-10 from the Williamsport
12.
Schwab and Houseman con-
nected yet again for another first
down, and after another spike
stopped the clock, the playmak-
ing-duo hooked up again.
With 53.2 seconds on the
clock and a third-and goal from
the two, Schwab found House-
man in the endzone for the
touchdown to cap the 60-yard

PA1, Dallas 3
Pittston Area was ready to
shock the local soccer world. But
undefeated Dallas would have
none of that.
The Patriots scored in the sec-
ond minute of action the first
goal the Mountaineers defense

2010 but Dallas was able to ral-
lyandkeepits markunblemished

Friday afternoon at the Bucky
Harris Athletic Complex in
Hughestown.

the Division 1 leaders.
Dallas answered just six min-
utes later to knot the score at 1-1,
andtookthe leadat the10-minute
mark, 2-1. The score remained
2-1 for the rest of the first half.
The Mountaineers added an
insurance goal in the second half
as its defense held Pittston Area
to just four shots on the after-
noon.
Taylor Roberts played well in
goal for PA, stopping eight shots.
PA11, GAR1

straight goals to take an 11-1 vic-
tory over GAR in a WVC cross-
over match on Wednesday after-
noon during Senior Parents Day

plex in Hughestown.
Pietro Colella busted out of a
scoring slump with six goals for
the Patriots. The junior had just
two goals in his previous four
games after coming into the sea-
son as the teams top offensive
threat. Colella also contributed
two assists for PA.
Leading-scorer Jordan Consa-
gra added two goals and an assist
for the Patriots, and Ian Tracy al-
so contributed two goals and an
assist.
Mike Mazur scored his first
goal of the season on an assist

As a sophomore, Kendra Crok-
er - Scranton Preps top tennis
player - lost a heartbreaker in last
years District 2 Class 2A tennis
championship match.
She wasnt about to let another
opportunity get past her.
The Old Forge resident used a
powerful ground game to knock-
off Wyoming Seminary freshman
Nathalie Joanlanne, 6-2, 6-4, to
capture the 2011 District 2 Class
2A title on Friday afternoon an
Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre. The
victory qualifies the Classics ju-
nior for the PIAA Championship
Tournament later this month.
Croker wonthe first nine points
of the game to go up a break and

Stevens sweeps Industrial playoffs
After many weeks of postponements
due to rain, flooding and unplayable
course conditions, the Industrial League
at Emanon Golf Club concluded its play-
offs.
Stevens Insurance and Financial Ser-
vices wrappedupa veryrewardingseason
by not only winning the regular season
championship, but also emerging victo-
rious in the playoffs to win both ends of
the championship.
The final match pitted the one-two fin-
ishers in the regular season as Stevens up-
ended Ashley Machine and Tool by a 3-0
score. The winners were led by Guy Fas-
cianas one under round of 33 and aided
by Rick Mazars 2 over par 36 as the pair
won the "A" match against John Mulhern
who shot 35 and Len Coleman who
chipped in with a 38. Stevens also won the
"B" match by fighting off an even par
round of 34 shot by Joe Coleman as his
partner, Alex Brogna, shot 41. Harry Ste-
vens shot 40 and Dave Begliomini a 42 to
ice the match. S
tevens accomplishment this season
was even more amazing in that they were
alone or tied for first place the entire sea-
son in a fitting end to their retiring cap-
tain, Joe Gentiles, involvement with the
league and team.
League president, Joe Biago, captained
Ashleys team. All members of the league
will celebrate the season with a captain
and crew tournament today at Emanon.

drive. Musto split the uprights
on the crucial PAT tying the
game at 14-14.
The Millionaires would get
the ball back, but not for long as
they brought in their deep
throwing specialist Jordan
Whaley to try and find the end
zone. However, he found
Houseman instead and the Patri-
ots took over from the 43 when
Houseman returned his inter-
ception 10 yards with 38 sec-
onds remaining in regulation.
With just seconds remaining
in the final quarter, Schwab
tried to go deep over the middle
to Houseman but his throw was
just out of the reach of the div-
ing star receiver. The clock
struck zero before they could
get another play off and the
game was headed for overtime.
Williamsport began the over-
time period on offense.
On first-and-goal from the 7-
yard line, Williamsports Burk-
holder found his tight end Ryan
Hostrander in the end zone
making it a 20-14 ball game.
The Millionaires opted to go for
the two-point conversion rather
than kick it through the up-
rights, and again failed as Jake
Zalewski busted through the of-
fensive line and brought down
Miller in the backfield.
The Patriots tried to answer
on the ground, handing the ball
off to Wilk for a four-yard gain
on first down, and again on sec-
ond down for 1-yard. Then on
third-and-goal from the 5-yard
line, Schwab found Marc Ro-
manczuk for a 3-yard gain set-
ting up fourth-and-goal from
the 2-yard line.
Schwab decided to go to the
air and his pass was tipped and
picked. His intended receiver
was thrown to the ground and
the Millionaires emerged victo-
rious by a score of 20-14.
Everyone wants to win right
now and games like this dont
make it any easier to under-
stand, Barrett said. It takes
time. We have a good football
team and we are going to be
good.
The kids showed a ton of
heart tonight. The defense
played very well and I thought
the offense did too.
Gattuso and Wilk lead the
rushing attack for the Patriots.
Gattusso had 72 yards on13 car-
ries, while Wilk had 98 yards on
17 carries.
Houseman was the Patriots
leading receiver with 55 yards
on seven receptions. Schwab
completed 11 passes for 85
yards.

on first and third down.
Old Forge took over at the Montrose
42, and after a 7-yard completion from
Carey to Elijah Wilson, Febbo ripped
off a 33-yard run on a short sweep be-
fore being knocked out at the 1. The
Blue Devils called Febbos number
again on the next play, and the senior
plowed into the endzone for the score.
Carey found Schuback again on the
two-point pass, and Old Forge led 35-0
with 9:02 left in the second quarter.
The Blue Devils would hold the Me-
teors to just nine more plays from
scrimmage in the first half with five of
those plays going for negative yardage
as Cory Stuart registered two tackles
for losses, and Joey Ciucco and Tyler
Clark sacked Dibble on back-to-back
plays.
Old Forge added to its first-half total
on a 23-yard field goal by Mancuso
after a 11-yard Sekol touchdown was
nullified by a holding penalty. Mancu-
sos kick gave the Blue Devils a 38-0
lead heading into halftime.
Montrose got on the board to start
the fourth quarter, but Old Forge add-
ed one more score when backup quar-
terback Brendan Wahl scrambled six
yards on fourth down for the score.
Mancuso nailed the PAT for the 45-6
lead.
Febbo finished with 98 yards on 13
carries, and Tomasetti added 83 yards
on nine carries.
Schuback also turned in a big game
defensively, recording three tackles,
including two sacks.
The victory puts Old Forge in a first-
place tie after the first week of divi-
sional play with Mid Valley and Sus-
quehanna. The Spartans upset previ-
ously unbeaten Lackawanna Trail on
Friday night, and the Sabers beat Holy
Cross on Saturday afternoon. The Blue
Devils host the Lions on Friday night.

Mrs. Nowakowskis Honors
English class at Pittston Area
High School recently took part
in the Ayn Rand Anthem essay
contest. Meredith Yozwiak was
chosen as a winner and was the
recipient of a monetary award.
The students had the choice
of one of three topics distrib-
uted by the Ayn Rand Institute
as their essay response. The
contest was open to 8th, 9th or
10th grade students worldwide.
The essay was judged on both
style and content. Judges
looked for writing that was
clear, articulate and logically
organized. Winning essays had
to demonstrate an outstanding
grasp of the philosophic mean-
ing of Anthem.

ski and Meredith Yozwiak.
Senior Interviews
By Jessica Baker
Ashley Warrick, of Pittston,
was born on January 1, 1994,
and is the daughter of Joann
Kane and William Warrick. If
Ashley was given the opportu-
nity to relive high school, she
said that she would not do any-
thing differently. Her most
memorable moment of high
school was the very first day;
her high school experience can
be summed up into one work
unforgettable.
Ashley is a member of the
varsity cheerleading team. As
far as favorites go, her favorite
food is chicken wing pizza, her
favorite movie is The Last
Song, and Adam Sandler is her
favorite celebrity. Ashleys best
friends are Amber Tirva and
Jessica Welter.
After her graduation, Ashley
plans to go to college.
Mallory Yozwiak, of Pitt-
ston Township, was born on
April 21, 1994, and is the
daughter of Melanie and Char-
lie Yozwiak. For Mallory, the
most memorable high school
moment was the junior Barbie
prank because she had Barbies
in her purse. Her favorite
teachers are Ms. Karaffa, and
Ms. Oliver.
A personal catchphrase of
Mallory is Oh shoot! Her
best friends include Gabby
Vaxmonsky, James LaMarca,
Shelby Smith, Jess Oliveri, and
Anthony Capozucca. Mallory
is a member of the field hock-
ey and soccer teams. Also, she
is a member of several clubs
ICE Club, Student Council,
National Honor Society, Jour-
nalism Club, and Key Club.
Chris Kovaleski, of Avoca,
was born on October 7, 1993,
and is the son of Ed and Ellen
Kovaleski. If Chris was able to
start high school over, some
things he would do differently
would be to invest more time
in his studies and involve him-
self in more school activities.
His favorite teachers include
Mr. Anthony, Mr. Richards,
and Mr. Giambra. For Chris,
the most challenging part of
high school was starting in a
new school. In one word, Chris
describes his high school expe-
rience as great.
Chriss favorite food is hi-
bachi, his favorite song is Yel-
low by Coldplay, and his fa-
vorite band is Rise Against.
After high school, Chris
plans to attend college. When
an adult, Chris most looks for-
ward to being able to live by
himself.

Anthem essay contest winner
