Many of you know Father
Paul McDonnell as a master of
the quip. About ten years ago I
had just introduced Father Tho-
mas OHara, president of
Kings College at the time, as
speaker for the annual Our
Lady of Mount Carmel Holy
Name Society Smoker and took
my seat at the head table next to
Father Paul. No sooner had
Father OHara begun his talk
when the pager of funeral di-
rector P.J. Adonizio, seated up
front, went off. Startled, Father
OHara stopped in mid-sen-
tence and said, Is my time
up? To which Father Paul
immediately replied, Some-
bodys is.
But for as quick and clever as
Father Paul is, his brother Ke-
vin is even better.
I was in a situation last week
where I had to choose between
using powdered non-dairy
creamer in my coffee or drink-
ing it black I chose black
and thought of Kevin and a
column I wrote more than 25
years ago.
We both worked for the Dis-
patch then, I as managing editor
and Kevin as sports editor. He
arrived at the office one morn-
ing to see me reading the list of
ingredients on a container of
non-dairy creamer. What are
you doing? he asked, trying
to milk a column from the non-
dairy creamer label?
I am now, I said.
Actually, I was just trying to
find out what was in the stuff.
Someone had forgotten to rinse
the community spoon and the
non-dairy creamer stuck on it
couldnt be chipped off with a
knife. I had to find out what I
was putting into my stomach
several times every day.
The big print on the back of
the jar sounded pretty good: no
preservatives, no cholesterol,
low in sodium. It could have
been a jar of vitamins, except
that the small print revealed it
contained less than two percent
of the daily allowances of vita-
min A, vitamin C, thiamine,
riboflavin, niacin, calcium and
iron. That, interestingly, was
listed under nutritional in-
formation. Clearly, the strong
suit of this product, I conclud-
ed, was servings per contain-
er. There were 311.
The ingredients themselves
reminded me of chemistry
class. Tops on the list was corn
syrup solids followed by par-
tially hydrogenated vegetable
oil. I remember thinking: has
anyone ever encountered fully
hydrogenated vegetable oil and
what would happen if one did.
The third ingredient was hard
pun intended to swallow. It
read: May contain one of more
of the following.
May contain? I thought.
Dont they know?
And whats the determining
factor, who happens to be doing
the mixing that day? Freddies
on duty this morning and hes
hung over. Watch him go crazy
with the palm kernel again.
Yes, palm kernel is one of the
things they werent sure was in
there or if it was, how much.
Others were coconut oil,
cottonseed oil, safflower oil and
soybean oil.
Does it take a chemist to
know if theres coconut oil in
something? Dont you just have
to take a whiff?
I suppose in a way you have
to give the manufacturers credit
for admitting they dont know if
certain things have made their
way into the product. You find
an empty drum or two of cot-
tonseed oil lying around and
have no idea where it went,
might as well put a disclaimer
on the label you know, just
to cover your behind.
The label also listed sodium
caseinate followed by the word
protein in parentheses. It sug-
gested an adherence to some
FDA regulation about putting at
least one worthwhile item in
there.
Then came the famous glyce-
ride sisters, Mono and Di.
Both were present, according to
the label, to prevent oil sep-
aration. Sounds like something
youd want in your carburetor
not your coffee. But at least you
can take comfort that the oils in
your non-dairy creamer if, of
course, they happen to be in
there (see above) are going to
stay together.
The di-potassium phosphate
was about the only ingredient I
noted that made sense. The
label said it was included to
moderate coffee acidity. Ill
drink to that.
There were only two things
left and the first of them makes
no sense at all: artificial flavor.
I hope the lobbyist who got that
smoke screen approved was
paid millions. Think about it. If
its legal to say artificial fla-
vor why not just dispense with
the list of ingredients all togeth-
er and just say stuff ? With, of
course, the disclaimer may
contain other stuff.
The final ingredient was
something called annatto,
defined as a vegetable-derived
artificial color.
I wondered for a moment
what color this concoction was
before they put the annatto in
but concluded I really didnt
want to know.

As patrons streamed into his
restaurant for its reopening on
Friday morning, Joe Agolino,
the owner of Agolinos Family
Restaurant in West Pittston, said
with his voice noticeably emo-
tional, This is a great day in my
life.
Agolino has lived in West Pitt-
stonfor more than60years. He is
the father of four children and
has been through and seen a lot
in his life, but the ordeal of
bringing his restaurant back after
the September flood was monu-
mental.
My dad planted the seed, but
I, with the help of many family
and friends, have been able to
fertilize this restaurant, said
Agolino.
Its been nearly three months
since the September flood
poured 7 1/2 feet of water and
mud in the dining room and
kitchen of the iconic Garden Vil-
lage eatery. But now, with the
grand reopening, Agolinos is
back.
Its been overwhelming to say
the least and thanks to a lot of
people from friends, to the bor-
ough, to the county and of course
to the customers, I dont think Id
be able to do this, continued
Agolino.
Joes brother Sam couldnt be
happier for his brother, the town,
and the customers that have been
loyal to the business. Its bitter-
sweet in a way not having my
parents here to see how hard my
brother persevered to get the res-
taurant back open, said Sam. I
marvel at his resilience and not
one nail or screwwas reused, ev-

Barry Finn, 63, grew up in
West Pittston with a sister Donna
andbrother Jim. He livedinWest
Pittston until 2006. He gradu-
ated with the first Wyoming Ar-
ea jointure class in 1967. A little
over 10 years ago he was a TV
personality, having been the
chief meteorologist for WYOU
TV for 10 years. He also worked
in TVmeteorology in Erie, Min-
neapolis and El Paso, Texas.
Today he works with his sons,
Paul and Matt, owners of the in-
ternet franchise www.wilkesbar-
rescrantonnightout.com.
He has done extensive re-
search on global warming and
flood mitigation.
Lets start with your Pinky
Lee story.
I started dancing with Tony
Grant whenI was five. I danceda
couple times on the Steel Pier in
AC. Then I went to David Blight.
He put together a little troupe of
Pinky Lee Dancers. He picked
six and I was one of them. He
taught us the Pinky Lee song and
dance routine. I dont knowif the
mothers made them, but we had
Pinky Lee outfits. Black and
white checkered coat, black and
white checkered hat and red and
white shirt and a little black bow
tie.
Ben Sterling, who owned
Rocky Glen, had Pinky Lee
coming to the Glen. He knew
about our troupe. Sterling called
Blight who called my mom. She
took me there in my Pinky Lee
outfit. So Pinky is doing his rou-
tine and he spots me, stops, and
calls me onstage andtogether we
did the Pinky Lee routine.
Who was Pinky Lee?
In the 50s and early 60s he was
a national TV star of thee Satur-
day morning kids show.
What was your college expe-
rience like?
I went to community college
for a year. The dean called me in
and said, Barry youre a nice guy
but college is probably not for
you. (Laughs). All I did was play
pinochle for the year. So I did a
series of odd jobs until I finally
figured out what I wanted to do,
so I went to Penn State and be-
came a meteorologist.
Were you always interested
in weather?
As a kid my friend Billy Um-
bauer and I would make our own
forecasts. It was always a hobby.
Even during that year at LCCCit
was a hobby. I was working as a
security guard at the airport part
time and I got to go upstairs and
meet the guys at the weather bu-
reau. Over the next three, four
years I was a constant visitor.
They sent books home with me
and literally taught me how to
forecast weather.
How did you get started as a
TV weatherman?
I a started at WNEP when I
was still in college. Paul Dou-
glass was the first meteorologist
on local TV. He actually started
while he was a student at Penn
State and so did Tom Clark.
I thought if they could do that,
why couldnt I? So I called and
talked to the news director and
asked for a job as a weekend the
weather guy. She saidwhywould
you ask for a job when you have
no experience? I said Tom Clark
and Paul Douglass did it. So she
interviewed me and I got hired.
Mylast twoyears at PennState
I came home weekends and was
on air doing weather. Id go back
toschool Monday. ThenMonday
evening Id go to the home of my
communications professor. She
taped my forecasts and shed go
over them with me and critique
me. It was a great learning expe-
rience.
When worked at WNEP, Tom
Clark was chief meteorologist.
He became a great mentor, boss
and friend. I attribute a lot of my
television success to Tom.
What was your career arc in
meteorology?
Erie was my first fulltime job
out of college. In TVif you want
to move up and make more mon-
ey you have to move round. I
went from Erie to Minneapolis,
back to W-Bfor a while and then
to El Paso, Texas.
I wantedtocome backhere be-
cause my two sons were here.
Bill Christian was the GM at
WYOU. We talked a lot. He liked
me and wanted me to come back.
It took a year and a half for the
pieces to come together and then
I came back and spent my final
10 years at WYOU from1992 to
2001.
What was it like forecasting
in different cities?
In El Paso its sunny with a
chance of an afternoon thunder-
stormandthat coveredyour fore-
cast 360 days of the year
(laughs). Erie was a lot of fun, es-
pecially in winter because you
had to forecast the lake-effect
snowstorms. That was challeng-
ing.
But I always like Northeastern
PA. Inmy25years as a meteorol-
ogist, I found NEPAhas the most
challenging weather, because of
the location. To the west youve
got all these bodies of water in
the Great Lakes. To the east
youve got the Atlantic Ocean
and here we sit in the middle
with mountains around us.
What happened at WYOU?
A corporation bought YOU.
They were making wholesale
changes in their on-air talent to
save money.
The news director said we
want to keep you, but we need
you to take a 50 percent salary
cut. It was a bigdecisionfor me. I
didnt want to take the cut and
you kind of have an ego after all
that time and I basically told him
to kiss my rear end.
They did the same thing to
Debbie Dunleavy.
What was the highlight of
your TV career?
In 1996 Clinton and Gore in-
vited 25 meteorologists to the
White House to discuss Global
Warming. Dont know how or
why, but I was one of them. Clin-
ton and Gore were interested.
They paid attention. Afterwards
a reporter from the Washington
Post asked my thoughts. I
thought that was pretty cool.
What happened after
WYOU?
That was 10 years ago. After
having moved around a lot my
decision was: do I move again,
because there were not a lot of
options here. I did have some of-

fers in New England and out
West. But one thing I found in
being in TV for almost 25 years
is it comes at a great expense to
your family. I ended up being di-
vorced. My children were grow-
ing up and hardly knew me.
On a typical day Id be out
speaking three different places.
It wasnt just being on the air at 6
and 11 there was a lot of other
stuff and my typical day was
noon to midnight.
I didnt get a chance to be with
my kids. Thats a big factor in
why I didnt move. I wanted to be
here andexperience their athletic
stuff andeverythingandbe a part
of their lives.
You had a couple of health
scares?
Yeah, within a year after
WYOUI had a heart attack and a
quadruple bypass.
After I recovered I got a job in
Forty Fort with Allied Medical
and Technical Careers as direc-
tor of admissions. Then I went to
Empire Beauty School in Moos-
ic and was there until two years
ago when my health really took a
big turn
I was having problems with
leg muscles, weakness in my
legs. I took a couple of falls. My
leg muscles were actually disin-
tegrating. The doctors told me it
was related to back problems I
had in the past and they sent me
to a physical therapist.
After six months the therapist
says youve been coming here
six months and your legs are get-
ting weaker, theres something
going on.
So I went to Philadelphia and
found out I have a disease called
CIDP. Its very close to MS. It
can also go into Lou Gehrigs. I
go to Philadelphia every month
and take IV therapy for three
days. Its kind of like a chemo,
but a little milder. Theres no
known cure, but so far it seems
like the treatments have stopped
to the progression.

Whats night out about?


I was always active, coaching
baseball, involved with the foot-
ball parents, being president of
the Little League. WhenI was hit
with this disease I was sitting
around a lot doing nothing and
my sons said I needed something
to do.
So I found this franchise. They
bought it and I help with it. It
gives me something to do be-
cause no matter how bad a day
Im having I can sit at home and
put stuff in the computer.
Its an online search engine
that will help you find, say, a
place to go out to dinner or to a
bar, or tosee a band. There are all
kinds of different categories like
if you want to go golfing or get a
haircut.
There is also Wilkes-Barre
Scranton Day In to search retail,
professional businesses, attor-
neys. My sons are still develop-
ing the day in.
Matt just graduated fromLock
Haven in sports management
andPaul is a PhDstudent at Tem-
ple.
Do you think Penn State is
tainted now?
It will recover its reputation
eventually. Theres probably a lot
we dont know yet. Hopefully
with the appointment of Louis
Freeh they will do a though in-
vestigation. I think the investiga-
tion will show there was a lot of
knee jerk reaction by the trustees
because I dont agree with the
firing of Paterno.
Im not saying everything he
did was right and having gone to
Penn State I know how powerful
he was.
Were you affected by the re-
cent flood?
No. I used to live on Philadel-
phia Ave, the block by river. I had
been flooded in 2004 and 2006.
Theres no more of a helpless
feeling in life than when you
stand there and watch the river
go into your house. Its hard to
explain what that feels like.
Youre so helpless. Theres noth-
ing you can do.
Having gone through that
twice at my age and in my condi-
tion I told my sons that was it. I
couldnt do that anymore. Its a
good thing I moved when I did.
In 04 and 06 the water came up
to the first floor. Now I under-
stand the home I sold had seven
or eight feet of water.
I feel sorry for those people
down there. They cant sell and
its going to happen again.
I moved to Swoyersville, side
of the mountain. (Laughs.)
What did you learn in your
flood research?
The flood was 42.6, a half foot
from top of the dike. I talked to
an engineer who said if the river
goes to 42 again next year, be-
cause its been weakened, the
dike wont hold.
Weve spent billions on dikes.
Do we nowgo and raise it anoth-
er two feet? Or do we stop and
look at the fact that four of the
highest six crests have been in
last 15 years?
Agnes was supposed to be a
100 year flood, but weve had
four or five100 year floods since
then. Flash flooding has in-
creased five fold in the last 10-15
years. River flooding is going up
because of development. Were
taking away land area where wa-
ter could soak in and now it runs
off.
If we say well buyout homes
and you can no longer live in the
flood plain weve wiped out al-
most half of West Pittston. Is that
doable? Are you going to do that
in Bloom, Shickshinny, are we
going to just eliminate all these
communities?
People have to live some-
where. We cant stop develop-
ment.
Look at what happened with
Katrina? The Army Corps told
them they were protected and
they werent
So whats your theory?
Rainwater harvesting. Instead
of just lettingall of it runoff back
into the aquifers and cause
floods, collect it above the
ground or in underground tanks.
They do it in India and other

On the night of July 28 in1918,
West Wyoming police Chief
Ralph Daley tried to disperse a
group of young men loitering
outside an ice cream parlor
blocking the sidewalk on West
Eighth Street between 10 and 11
oclock. Shots rang out and Da-
ley was killed.
Three hours later around 3
a.m. on the morning of the 29th,
Wyoming Police Chief Edward
Brennan and Officer Hiram
Long were stopping vehicles and
teams on Wyoming Avenue as
part of the investigation into Da-
leys slaying, when they were
told the suspect had been seen in
the area of First Street.
Telling Officer Long to con-
tinue the road block, Brennan
went toinvestigate. Minutes later
two shots were heard. Chief
Brennan was also slain.
They remain the only two po-
lice officers from Wyoming or
West Wyoming ever killed in the
line of duty.
The new Wyoming Borough
building was dedicated to Chief
Edward Brennan Public Safety
Annex last July.
An investigation implicated
three men in the double murder
case: Louis Mancino, Antonio
"Tony" Rizzo, Steve Martini.
Charges were eventually drop-
ped against Mancino and Marti-
ni and Rizzo was found not
guilty after a jury trial.
Arlene Daley Welliver, grand-
daughter of Police Chief Ralph
Daley, penned this poem about
the day her grandfather was
gunned down in the line of duty
along with Chief Brennan.
On one very sad day
Two young chiefs lives were
taken away.
One was Chief Brennan
And the other Chief Daley.
They never got to enjoy their
families.
Chief Daley was on duty in
West Wyoming that day
When his life was taken away.
A group of men formed under
a street light.
And thats where Chief Daley
lost his life.
The news spread quickly all
around
That Chief Daley was gunned
down.
The killer quickly left our
town
and went to Wyoming
and shot Chief Brennan down.
What a very, very sad day
When two young chiefs lives
were taken away.
WhenI was youngmydadsaid
to me
I wonder what it would have
been like
If my dad raised me?
He would have got to knowme
And I would have got to know
him.
I know he would have been
My best friend.
Then, a sadness came over my
dads face
That years and time did not
erase.
The night when my dad died,
he said,
When I get to the other side
will I see my dad?
will he know me?
For I was over the age of three
Maybe I was more like four.
I hope I see my dad once
more.
On that very, very sad day,
When two young dads lives
were taken away
They never got to go home that
night
To hug their kids or kiss their
wives.
Chief of Police Brennan and
Chief of Police Daley
Never got toenjoytheir family,
And no one ever paid the price
For taking Chief of Police Ed-
ward Brennan
Or Chief of Police Ralph Da-
leys lives.

places. They went to individual
homeowners and said heres a
system you can put in that will
provide all your water. Theygave
them tax incentives to do it and
they did it the same thing with
businesses.
They keep the water unfiltered
for toilets, lawns, irrigation, car
washes. The rest they filter and
use for drinking water. Ninety
percent of their drinking water
comes from rainwater harvest-
ing.
Do you believe it is practical
to send rainwater through
pipelines to relive droughts?
In the last 10 years in flood and
drought related costs the feds
have spent over $500 billion. In
Texas just this past summer the
drought-related damage cost bil-
lions. You spent $500 billion and
what did you accomplish?
Are you going to save those ar-
eas fromfuture floods? No. Peo-
ple are rebuilding their homes
and businesses. Are we going to
spend billions more when the
next flood wipes themout again?
What if that $500 billion went
into rainwater harvesting and
building a pipeline. The Alaskan
pipeline was 800 miles and cost
$5 billion in 77 dollars. Thats
$25 billion today. Increase that
three times to 2400 miles and
cover the whole country. So what
if its $75 billion? Thats better
than 500. This would create a lot
of jobs.
I talked to congressman Bar-
letta and he found it interesting.
Im trying to get the governors
office interested. Well see
where that goes.
Whats on your IPod?

Wednesday is the 70th anniversary of
the attack on Pearl Harbor, which precip-
itated Americas entry in to World War II.
As hard as it is to comprehend that means
a soldier or sailor who was just 20 years
old on that Day of Infamy as President
Franklin D. Roosevelt called December 7
in 1941 is 90 today.
It means that we are rapidly losing the
men and women of our Greatest Gener-
ation as TomBrokawnicknamed the men
and women who lived through the Great
Depression and World War II and were
the parents to those we call The Baby
Boom Generation.
On Memorial Day, July 4, and Veterans
Day we stop and honor our Veterans and
what they have done for us with ceremo-
nies and parades.
Heres a call for another way to honor,
not just our elderly Veterans, but our el-
derly who lived through those times talk
to them.
And we dont mean just Veterans of
WWII. We urge readers who are lucky
enough to have parents, grandparents,
aunts, uncles or friends and neighbors
who are in their 80s and 90s, Veterans or
not, to ask them about their lives and me-
mories.
Talk to them, but more importantly, lis-
ten to them.
It is estimated that 900 WWII Vets die
every day, that only 1 in 8 of the
16,000,000 who served are still living and
they will be gone within as little as 8
years.
It will be too late to hear their stories
when that time comes.
So record those stories if you can. And
if you do let us know about them.

Greatest
The musical group Twelve Twenty Four performed at the Ha-
zleton Area High School auditoriumon November 19. Their per-
formance was unlike anything that those in attendance had ever
seen before
The pure talent that each band member shared with the audi-
ence was unmatched. The evening was filled with overtones of
the true meaning of the season and made everyone reflect on the
spirituality that Christmas brings.
Although I recommend that everyone take advantage of the
opportunity to witness the mag-
ic of the Twelve TwentyFour ex-
perience, my sole reason for
writing this message is not to
promote the band, for there is a
story behind the performance.
Inthe purest sense of the word
giving, Twelve Twenty Four
gave this performance as a gift
to152 residents of White Haven
Center, none of whom had ever witnessed anything like this be-
fore. On that evening, the centers residents, families, staff and
friends came together to experience once-in-a-lifetime moments
that words could never adequately describe.
To put this in perspective, Twelve Twenty Four consists of 17
performers and a host of others who are needed to set up for the
show. They started arriving at the Hazleton Area High School
auditoriumat 10a.m. tobeginsettingupthe stage andproduction
with truckloads of equipment.
Because the showis high tech, a great deal of preparation is
required. The crewworked tirelessly and competently to accom-
plish this task without skipping a beat. As the band members
arrived, we all felt the excitement in the air. As the show neared,
theybegantotransformfromwearingtheir street clothes intored
carpet performers. Their wardrobe changes throughout the show
added color and dimension. The audience waited in anticipation
for the show to commence.
Twelve Twenty Four then offered a performance that is un-
matched. From their beautiful blend of rock infused Christmas
music totheir storytellingmessages of hope, it all came together.
The audience was mesmerized with the merging of guitars,
drums, bass, string instruments, a hint of brass and the most
beautiful vocals ever heard. The bands angel offeredall of us a
reminder of the innocence of our youth that the season brings.
Throughout the performance, the audience clappedalongwith
the music, listened to the stories and experienced the true mean-
ing of Christmas. The spirit of giving surrounded us. For the152
residents of White Haven Center, no better gift could ever have
been imagined.
Words can never describe the depth of gratitude that our White
Haven Center family has for the gift of
Twelve Twenty Four. When thanked
for their generosity, band members Ri-
chie Kossuth and Lenny Kucinski re-
plied, It was you who gave us a gift.
In addition to Richie and Lenny, our
special thanks go out to Jason Santos,
Cornelius Goodwin, Kevin Reilly,
Bobbie Kucinski, Tanisha Redding,
Mallory Shaw, Dirk Yahraes, Frank
Gruden, Kyle Segarra, Hannah Levine,
Jill Trapane, Michaelina Trapane, Zach Alley, Christine Barnes
and Kelsey Barnes (the bands special angel). Also, heartfelt
thanks go out to the road crew consisting of Tom Abod, Gene
Smith, Joe Wakalavich, Mark Murphy and a young woman
whose name escapes me.
White Haven Center would also like to thank the Hazleton
Area School District for its generous offering of the school audi-
torium and their very helpful, friendly security and administra-
tive support staff. This event would not have been possible with-
out their partnership.
Lastly, we would like to thank Mr. Gerald Feissner for his on-
going support and assistance in making this show happen.
Please know that the spirit of Christmas is alive and well in
Northeast Pennsylvania. For the members of Twelve Twenty
Four, their performance is a true reflectionof their outwardgene-
rosity and compassion.
Note: There will be a performance of Twelve Twenty-four to-
night beginning at 6 p.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish
Center, William Street, Pittston.

OUROPINION
The first words of the Bill of Rights
fromthe first amendment of the Constitu-
tion of the United States are these: Con-
gress shall make no law respecting an es-
tablishment of religion, or prohibiting the
free exercise thereof...
What kind of a legal genius came up
with the notion that those16 words can be
construed to prohibit a small town from
putting a manger scene in its public
square? It sounds backwards. Isnt ban-
ning a manger scene prohibiting the free
exercise thereof.
We would love to have a constitutional
scholar explain to us where were wrong.
A bad scene?

Sometime in the 1930s and 40s on East Eighth Street across
from what is now Hose Co. 1 was a blacksmith shop.
As I recall the smithys name was Witheridge. He was a stocky
built man and smoked a pipe that "dripped."
He probablyshoedhorses before that time, but I recall whenhe
would take a strip of quarter or half inch steel and heat it in his
coal-fired forge. He inserted the piece of steel and got it white
hot. Then wearing heavy gloves he took a 20-pound hammer that
matched his arms and hammered the steel into various shapes: a
hinge, a door handle, a shelf bracket or a pair of tongs for a fire-
place.
He and his wife were inseparable. When she passed away, he
joined her only a few weeks or a month later.
True love.
Another place of interest was Jumpers garage and auto repair.
It was located in the alley behind what is nowBednarskis Funer-
al Home on Wyoming Ave. The shop is still there.
Two brothers, George and Pete, both mechanics, operated the
business. After Pete died George continued to run it for many
years.
During WWII they worked in defense plants in New Jersey.
They were true mechanics. George would stand by my car and
listen. From that he could tell what the problem was and what
was needed to fix it. There were no computers or electronics.
One winter night it was snowing and the wind was blowing.
We came out of church and our car, a 47 Chevy, wouldnt start. I
called George at home.
He said open the hood and wipe off the snowthat he knewhad
blown onto the distributer. We thought he was kidding, but we
did what he said and the car leaped into life.
Oh, for the good old days

My friend, Anne, has recently used her yoga-like
finesse and zenability to cajole/bully me into join-
ing her on a little hell-train I like to call Pilates.
Pilates. It even sounds nasty like tuber-
culosis or impetigo or Guantanamo or exercise.
Let me get to the end of the story first: Pilates is
kicking my not-yet-defined a@#.
Our classes are held in the church basement, I
assume for the very reason that when I scream:
Holy Mary Mother of God, HELP ME! its very
convenient to get my pleas to reach the spiritual
ears of Someone Important more expediently.
My sister, whos adapted all things Southern
since moving to Georgia, has a term for a moment
of self-awareness that may cause emotional or
physical pain. She calls it a
Come to Jesus moment.
Pilates, for me, is one
enormous Come to Jesus
Moment, all cocooned
within the church base-
ment; verrryyy well-suited
for prayers-on-the-run, or
the mat, as it were .
Every time the instructor
directs me to Tuck in my
abs and curl toward my tail
bone I pray. Each time she
chirps: Time for 100s I
pray. Each time she demands: Knit those ribs! I
scratch my head in confusion, frown, throw-up,
then pray.
Im a newbie. Ive no earthly idea what I m do-
ing on the tile floor in this basement except that my
belly has begun to rest on my thighs as I sit, toilet-
prone, and Ive discovered, tragically, I have the
flexibility of a tree branch and the stamina of a
cockroach stuck in molasses.
Something had to be done and Anne, sick and
tiredof mywhining, forcedme intoaction. I didnot
realize this action actually required, you kno-
waction.
Our instructor, a darling, dainty dynamo (alliter-
ation intended) is hard to hate.
Shes adorable, and elfin and as pleasant as I
imagine Hansel & Gretels stepmother to have
been prior to leading them into the forest. She is
difficult toabhor, evenwhile she is imploringme to
scoop those abdominals, causing me to sob into
my new yoga mat. Which smells like sweat and
Preparation H. I dont know why. Yes I do.
At the start of class, she cheerfully advises us to
get into the table position.
What in Gods name does she mean by that?
Judging by the positions assumed by my Pilates-
mates, it appears the table she is referring to is that
of my gynecologist. Same table, same position,
same humiliation.
I yank my limbs into the table positionand I
cannot move. I cant. I then flip onto my belly like a
catfish on a hook and Im stuck; prone like Sunset
Malibu Barbie on the roof of her Barbie Camper,
where she enjoyed sunbathing in the 1970s.
As much as I grunt and strain and gasp, my arms
can only reach so far down my thighs and my neck,
while never considered swan-like, is now bulging
with veins and throbbing like a church pew fell on
my head.
Our teacher encourages breathing in and out
is the way to go, apparently. Yet each time she says
exhale, I inhale and vice versa. How can I ever
hope to secure the body type of Cameron Diaz if I
cant get the breathing gig down accurately?
During a technique called The Roll Up, I held
my breath for so long that I . well lets just say
that kielbasi and horseradish were an unfortunate
dinner choice pre-Pilates. Especiallyfor those poor
saps located downwind
from me.
Lesson learned. I will
only eat a lettuce leaf and
a Dixie cup of water pre-
Pilates. I respect these
women too much to make
them inhale my vapors
during Downward Dog,
or whatever the hell the
animal is Im emulating.
Well! I think it may be
working. If it hurts tofloss
my teeth, it must be work-
ing, right?
Also, it hurts to squat and chew. Not simultane-
ously. It hurts to file my nails. It hurts to talk, not
that it stops me.
My cheeks hurt, both facial and posterior.
Even my hair follicles hurt.
It hurts so much to heave my battered body up
and out of my Serta Perfect Sleeper every day that I
wonder if I can hire a team of Oompa Loompas to
come over with a hand truck and WD-40 to get the
job done.
Ive had three children, three kidney stones and
my gallbladder, appendix and boobs removed.
Guess what? Pilates hurts more.
Buton the bright side? My fancy pants but-
toned this morning! And, Imstanding up straight-
er so Ive almost reached the five foot mark! And
after class, I dont run home and eat a platter of
Tater Tots anymore! Id give a thumbs up here, but
it hurts.
But, Holy Mary, Mother of God if youre up
there while Imknittingmyribs onthis smellyyoga
mat in the church basement, please come down and
give me a hand. Otherwise, this downward dog or
whatever the hell the animal is Im emulating
may just have to bark, twist, shout, tinkle and sim-
ply expire all on a broken gynecologists ta-
ble.

Our teacher encourages breathing
in and out is the way to go, ap-
parently. Yet each time she says

How can I ever hope to secure the

cant get the breathing gig down
accurately?
Does the thought of baking for the holidays leave you in a holiday-
daze? Frozen with fear that you wont get it all done?
Instead of baking to a frazzle this holiday season, try chilling out.
Bake ahead and freeze cookie dough to avoid last-minute hassles.
Freezing cookie dough works better than baking the cookies then
freezing. If the dough is packaged correctly, no one will ever know
your secret to getting all the cookies baked and have all the other
holiday preparations finished.
Belowis a recipe for the best cookie of1940-1945. Duringthis time
period, the World War II efforts brought the need to simplify baking.
Men went off to war and women took their places in the production
lines. Cookie baking and other home tasks had to be speeded up.
Refrigerator cookies were popular because the doughcouldbe mixed
one day, sliced and baked the next. Home freezers werent introduced
until 1946. Today, the dough now can be frozen as freezers are avail-
able in just about every home today.
Here are some guidelines to help you start
First, it is important to use freezer containers or wrappings that are
moisture-vapor-resistant. Suitable freezer wrapping materials in-
clude freezer paper, plastic freezer bags, plastic wrap designed for
freezer use and extra heavy or heavy duty freezer aluminum foil. If
you are in doubt, check the wrapping labels for specific information
about whether the wrappings work for freezing.
Other suitable materials include rigid freezer containers such as
food grade plastic. It is important to choose a container that fits the
amount of foodyoure freezing. If theres greater thanabout a1/2inch
space between the surface of the dough and the top of the container,
wrap the food with a layer of freezer wrapping before placing it in the
container. This helps prevent moisture loss.
Some containers arent suitable for freezing. For example, milk
and cottage cheese cartons arent moisture-vapor-resistant enough
for freezing. Label each package with the type and amount of the
contents and the date it was frozen.
Next step, check your freezer internal temperature. Foods should
be frozen at 0 F or below. Avoid overloading your freezer with too
much dough for freezing at one time.
When ready to bake the cookies, thaw in the refrigerator. One day
should be sufficient for most foods to thaw. For thawing at roomtem-
perature, allow only one to two hours for the food to thaw.
Now to get started, here is the best cookie from1940-1945
Caramel Refrigerator Cookies
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Cream together margarine and butter. Add sugar, beat until light
and fluffy. Add egg, creamagain. Stir flour and baking soda together.
Add to creamed mixture. Forminto a roll 2 and1/2 inch width. Wrap
in wax paper. Freeze. Thaw in refrigerator one day before baking.
Slice1/8inch. Place onungreasedbakingsheet. Bake 8-10minutes or
until lightly browned. Makes approximately 5 dozen. Note, the in-
structions were adjusted for using an electric mixer.

The magic and spirit of Christmas
should have happened right after Thanks-
giving with the frenzy of Black Friday.
The anticipation of bargain hunting,
thinking of all the money that would be
saved, being caught up in the lore of the
hunt.
Somehow it didnt happen. Im still in
the Thanksgiving mode. Maybe its be-
cause there is still left over turkey and
pumpkin pie in the refrigerator. Or just
maybe, I cant muster up the energy and
enthusiasm to stand in lines waiting at
cash registers to be checked out. Nor can I
find the energy to walk a mile from the
parking lot to the entrance of the mall. It
could be my age or a true reality check.
There is one place that the Magic of
Christmas is found for it is safely stored
not in tissue paper but in love to be re-
membered and savored at will. It is in the
crevices of my memories and in the beat
of my heart.
Christmas as a child began at St. Roc-
cos Church as we prepared for the birth
of Jesus. Yearly, a Christmas pageant was
held with the Nativity scene recreated.
We waited anxiously to learn who would
play the roles of Mary and Joseph. One
of the church.
As a teen, I remember walking to
church for Midnight Mass. (Now I was a
member of the choir.) People came from
all directions talking, laughing and walk-
ingbrisklyona coldwinter night merging
at the churches. It occurred throughout
the towns since cars were not yet part of
households.
Can you envision people walking in
downtown Pittston to the many churches
located throughout the city and greeting
each other with Merry Christmas. Two
words that are rarely heard today and have
been replaced with Happy Holidays. If
we didnt knowbetter it could be Ground-
hog Day, March Winds Day, or any other
day that could be called a happy holiday.
To Christians it should always be Merry
Christmas.
Memories of shopping in downtown
Pittston are heartwarming. Main Street
fromSouth Pittston to North Pittston was
lined with every kind of shop imaginable.
I picture sidewalks crowded with shop-
pers as a gentle snow falls adding to the
anticipation of Christmas. The Salvation
Army Santa always stood in front of
Woolworths with a red kettle ringing a
bell for donations. I truly believed he was
the real Santa from the North Pole. The
thrill of seeinghimandbeinggivena pen-
ny to put in the pot for the poor children
was magical. There is still magic in giv-
ing.
Tears flow as I remember my first
Christmas tree at age 12. Papa and I went
to Mr. Russos store where only two trees
remained. One was full and beautiful and
had just been sold. The other was a tall
skinny tree that I suppose for many weeks
had been pushed aside and by-passed. Pa-
pa bought the tree and together we carried
it home. He made a special set of pink
lights. Later as my brother Jim wrapped
the lights on the tree he informed us that
Papa had used outdoor lights. Those
lights were brilliant and lit up the whole
room.
Christmas magic for parents is in the
faces of their children on Christmas
morning when they discover Santa had
arrived and filled the room with packag-
es. It was a ritual on Christmas morning
as we waited for our two daughters to
come running down the hall to announce
Santa came as they pulled us out of bed
year we had no Joseph because there was
nocostume. Bravely, I raisedmyhandand
announced Mama would make my cos-
tume if I were Joseph. I got the part.
It was doubly exciting for as Joseph, I
escorted Mary as she presented Jesus to
be placed in the crib at the altar at Mid-
night Mass. That year Sister decided Ba-
by Jesus would be wheeled in a carriage.
It was difficult trying to keep the carriage
straight with one hand. The instructions
were to keep the right hand over the heart
and steer with the left hand. The carriage
kept veering to the right edging towards
the pews. By the time we arrived at the
altar the carriage made a direct hit on the
front pew. That created a fewsnickers and
laughs. While the laughter was muffled, I
could feel Sisters disapproval and a chill
trickling up my neck. That was not good.
Midnight Mass was the highlight of
Christmas. The church was beautifully
decorated, prior to mass the organist
played Christmas music on the pipe organ
filling the church with magnificent
sounds. If you were not seated by 11:00
p.m. there was standing room only. Peo-
ple stood shoulder to shoulder in the ais-
les, vestibule and on the outside landing

to come see. What fun and how
precious those memories.
My heart swells as I think of
the beautiful Christmas magic
made in Texas with two adorable
grandsons, Nicolas and Alexan-
der. The visits tosee Santa Claus,
the sprinklingof reindeer dust on
the lawn, the expression on their
faces as they opened packages
left by Santa. Entrenched are the
memories of little arms wrapped
around our necks, the kisses
planted on our cheeks, the cud-
dling between me and grampy to
hear a story or sing a song. There
is no price tag on those memo-
ries.
It gives me a warm feeling re-
membering 47 Christmas parties
celebrated with the girls in our
club. We formed a Pokeno club
in 1963 and though the numbers
and a few faces changed, the
original six members still meet.
We loved telling stories about
our children and then our grand-
children and now one of us is a
great grandmother.
Nowwe tell stories of our ach-
es and pains. We create our own
magic where ever we go.
The ultimate magic will occur
when I walk up into the attic and
take down the Christmas decora-
tions.
Among the boxes is the one
box that contains the chalk set of
the Nativity scene that I pur-
chased in Woolworths Five and
Dime Store 65 years ago. Each
piece will be lovingly unwrap-
ped for they hold memories of
Mama, Papa and my lifetime of
Christmases with happy and sad
memories.

Store a clean popsicle stick into your
dry ingredient bins, such as sugar and
our. Instead of using a butter
knife or another straight edge tool, the
popsicle stick can be used to level
the scoop when measuring out your
ingredients as well as, sweep away any
excess.

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.
The Nebraska Supreme Court has ruled in a
custody suit that a man is a boys legal father
even though a paternity test proved he is not
the biological father. Paternity was legally
established, the court said, when the man and
the mother signed a notarized form in 2006
acknowledging the man as the boys father.
The boy spent his frst four years with the man
after the mother fed the state to avoid arrest on
methamphetamine charges.
***
Connecticut has a new law that decriminalizes
small amounts of marijuana.
***
Under a new California law, any lender who
agrees to a short sale, which by defnition will
yield insuffcient funds to cover the outstanding
loans on a property, must accept it as payment
in full for all loan balances.
***
Driving with extreme care can be evidence of
a crime, according to the Wisconsin Court of
Appeals. An offce watched as a truck slowed
to a near stop at an intersection even though
there was no stop sign. At the next block,
the truck again came to a full stop before
proceeding. There was no other traffc nearby.
The offcer had taken a drunk driving course
and found the driving suspiciousespecially
since he said it was bar time. The offcer
conducted a traffc stop. The court ruled the
offcer had reasonable cause to make the stop,
and upheld the drivers conviction for driving
under the infuence of alcohol.
***
Time was when an individual
pharmacist could rent a store-
front, hang out a shingle and
make a living. In todays corpo-
rate-dominated business world it
wouldseemthat time has passed.
But for JosephAlbert that time
is now.
After 18 years working for ma-
jor chains at two different loca-
tions onthe PittstonBy-Pass, Al-
bert, a Pittston native and 1987
Pittston Area graduate, is buck-
ing the corporate trend with his
own independent Pharmacy at
201 South Main Street.
Asked why he struck out inde-
pendently, Albert said opening
his own pharmacy was a dream
deferred.
When I got out of school, he
said, I had loans to pay. I had to
take a job. I never stopped want-
ing to start my own business, but
it was like I blinked and 20 years
went by.
He was encouraged by some
of his old college buddies at
Temple, from where he gradu-
ated in1992, who had success in-
dependently. After watching
them the time seemed right, he
said. I wasnt getting any
younger and Im not afraid. Its
different when you can practice
pharmacy the way you want, not
the way a corporation wants.
Alberts Pharmacy had a soft
opening in October, since then
his business has grown incre-
mentally, just the way he hoped it
would. He said he is creating a
pharmacy where customers will
be known by name not by num-
ber. Many of his customers from
the By-Pass stores have followed
him and new ones from the
neighborhood are coming in.
Albert said when he was get-
ting his store, which he rents
from Joe OMalley, ready and
before he opened, people would
stop him on the street and say,
We cant wait until you open.
As an independent pharmacist
he can offer customer service the
major chains cant match. He of-
fers free delivery and has a drive
through window where custom-
ers can talk to a pharmacist in the
window, not a machine. At the
same time Alberts is high-tech
with an automated phone order-
ing system and a computerized
records system.
While Alberts is independent,
it is a Good Neighbor Pharmacy.
Thats a network that helps inde-
pendently owned and operated
pharmacies compete with the
pricing of chain stores.
Good Neighbor Pharmacies
were rated the highest in custom-
er satisfaction by a J. D. Power
study in 2010 and 2011.
Alberts is at 201S. Main at the
corner of Oak Street in what was
years ago a Pizza Hut. Later a
Medicap Pharmacy was in there.
Then it sat vacant for several
years ago until OMalley bought
it.
Alberts is open 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. Monday through Friday and
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The
phone number is 299-5150. The
website is albertspharmacy.com.
There is parking out front and
in the back of the building.

Independent Graphics on Riv-
er Road in Plans is 31 years old
and its grounds next to the
Eighth Street Bridge had stayed
dry through four floods. This
September, however, water spill-
ed over the rivers embankment,
climbing to six feet high in the
building before receding to the
river level.
When Lou Ciampi Jr., owner
and president of Independent
Graphics, stepped back through
the doors of his business, he
knew what to expect.
I expected what I saw, Ciam-
pi said. The damages were sub-
stantial.
Independent Graphics is a
family owned-and-operated,
business-to-business printing
and shipping company, offering
digital services, pre-press and
concept work, binding and direct
mail.
The company was founded by
Lous father, Lou Ciampi Sr. in
1980. After Lou graduated from
Dickinson College in 1985, he
entered Independent Graphics as
a salesman, eventually working
as a sales manager. He held that
position until two years ago
when he became president of the
company. Lous brother, Jim, be-
came vice president of sales and
Lou Sr. took over as acting CEO.
As with many businesses af-
fected by the flood, Independent
Graphics faced a challenging
road to recovery.
In its first step forward, the
business immediately, but tem-
porarily, relocated to the former
Zorgo Printing facility on Main
Street in Pittston on September
11. The business opened on Sep-
tember 12 and began taking or-
ders and shipping product that
same day. However, it wouldnt
be until November 18 that em-
ployees were able to completely
return to the main location.
The fact that people were still
able to e-mail orders and place
orders through our FTP site and
through the computer, for folks
who were both out of town and
local, it was a great help, Lou
Ciampi, 48, added.
Ciampi is focused on getting
the business back to where it was
before he looks ahead to future
growth.
We have always been very
good at logistics because we do
business out of town, he said.
We are able to print a job and
get it to Philadelphia or NewJer-
sey because our business model
is predicated by five days and 24
hours. We can make things hap-
pen in a hurry.
But, the passage to total recov-
ery has been slow at times. Yet,
increasingly, it has grown steady.
Before the flood, the company
had 27 employees. Now, remark-
ably in months passed, it is back
up to 24 employees and has con-
sistently worked the sales vol-
ume close to where it once was.
Our sales volume is down as
far as the kind of jobs that we can
do and our ability to turn them
around, but were about there,
Ciampi stated. Now that we
have a 29-inch four color press
running 24 hours a day, were
back.
The company has restored its
offices and its pre-press and dig-
ital printing operations. There
has been a great deal of extra ef-
fort and efficient business man-
agement decision making.
Theres only so much you can
do, so fast and so competitively,
Lou said. Now that were past
that point, and were probably
producing about 85% of all our
jobs, we canget after it again. We
can be competitive from a price
standpoint and a labor stand-
point.
Ciampis short-term plan is to
get back to profitability.
As I tell my staff, the first re-
ally hard part is over, he ex-
plained. The next really hard
part is upon us. We have a lot of
hard work to do. Weve got a
five-color press scheduled for
delivery. When both of our
presses are back up and running
for a couple of months, we
should be in a better situation.
As for the original values and
company production established
by Ciampi Sr., the family has
made them into cornerstones of
the business and keys in both op-
erating through recovery and
finding continuity in develop-
ment.
Its a testament to the dedica-
tion of our staff, Ciampi said.
Our management team, the job
that theyhave done toget us back
to where we are now is nothing
short of amazing and unparallel-
ed. The commitment to the local
communityandtothe employees
that my father has shown to get
us back to where we are now, its
phenomenal. There were easier
ways to go about this than to
clean up and try to return to the
same business model we had be-
fore. Thats my fathers dedica-
tion and commitment to the peo-
ple who work for us.
Just to be here today, we have
a lot to be proud of, he added.

Question #1
What good news
did Pittston city em-
ployees receive in
December of 1952?
1952 59 Years Ago
Freshman Nick Ruggerio of Pittston
started out as a water boy for the Pittston
High School football team. He soon
became a much more valuable part of
the team. Named manager in his sopho-
more year, Nick was in charge of equip-
ment, schedules, playing records, three
changes of uniforms and repairs. Nick
contributed to the spirit and morale of
the team by assuring a smooth transition
from game to game.
Miners Bank offered a hand held
calendar bank for the Christmas holi-
days at only $1.25. The display slots
would change to the current date each
time a coin was inserted encouraging
people to save every day. Calendar
banks are collectors items today valued
anywhere from forty-five to seventy-five
dollars.
Hughestown residents were extremely
happy that they would be getting the
good nights sleep they had missed for
several years. Sullivan Trail Coal Com-
pany ceased stripping operations and
removed the draglines and noisy equip-
ment that had kept residents sleepless
during its midnight shift.
Edgar Saunders, president of the
board of Wyoming School District, had
a hard time implementing government
subsidized school lunches. Some offi-
cials objected as they felt the program
socialistic in nature. Saunders did not
see the issue as political but tremen-
dously helpful to the students. Board
members decided to investigate other
school districts handling of the issue.
According to USDA.gov, In July 1943,
the 78th Congress enacted Public Law
129 amending Section 32 of the Agricul-
tural Act of 1935, authorizing the expen-
diture of Section 32 funds not in excess
of $60 million for maintaining the
school lunch and school milk pro-
grams. The Richard B. Russell Nation-
al School Lunch Act is a federal law
signed by President Harry S. Truman in
1946. The act enabled allocation of sur-
plus food and grants to states so school
districts could provide lunches for chil-
dren who might otherwise go hungry.
1962 49 Years Ago
Local basketball star Joe Adamitis of
Exeter was set to start his second season
with the George Washington University
Colonels as center. Joe was the Colo-
nels second leading scorer in 1961 with
347 points in 24 games.
John Murtha of Exeter, a man of
limited means, heard of a fire that de-
stroyed the home of a Harveys Lake
family. He came into the Sunday Dis-
patch office with an envelope containing
$5 and asked the editors to get the
money to that family. A few days later,
an Exeter family lost a loved one in a
fire that destroyed their home. John
came into the office again with another
envelope containing $5 for the family
saying, Theyll need the money, maybe
it will make other people think about
helping.
While assigned to Headquarters of
USAF Security Service in Germany,
Captain Daniel F. Berkant of West
Pittston received the Air Force Com-
mendation Medal for, meritorious ser-
vice, outstanding initiative, leadership
and devotion to duty.
The merged board of the Northeast
School District numbered 37. The
boards jurisdiction covered 3,126 stu-
dents, with issues such as bus trans-
portation, food and payroll projected to
hit one million dollars. The ability of the
board to agree on the many issues it
faced was challenging.
Over 500 teenagers from Greater
Pittston enjoyed a holiday dance at St.
Roccos auditorium. One of the high-
lights of the dance was the release of a
live turkey on the dance floor. It was up
to the girls to catch the bird to be served
at a Thanksgiving feast. In 1962,
Mary Kay Hines captured the prize.
Her friends Joe Nardone, Judy Spohr-
er, Ann Marie Hodakowski, Ann Ma-
rie Sobol and Jack Borzell were there
to congratulate her.
Question #2
Through what poem did the borough
of Avoca receive its name?
1972 39 Years Ago
Pittston Area Principal John Donovan
announced Carol Morris, Karen Elko,
Rachel Young, Susan Fritschy, Susan
Swanek, Linda Halat, Kathy Russav-
age, Mary Ellen Alu, Sandi Roman,
Eleanor Masakowski, Mary Egan,
Debbie Savoia, Susan Poplawski, Tom
Jones, Jan Draus, Laurie Kania, and
Linda Phillip were nominated to com-
pete for $640,000 in scholarship funds
through the Outstanding American High
School Students program. Billedas one of
the most unique inthe nation, the program
consisted of unrestricted honor grants to
any college of the students choice.
The women of the St. Johns Lutheran
Missionary League set aside the month of
November to accumulate food items and
monetary gifts for the local Meals of
Wheels. Winifred Nill, president and
Gladys Bowman, secretary presented
numerous items to Mary Bobbouine,
vice president along with Rev. Roland
Haase, of Meals of Wheels. According to
the Meals of Wheels of American web-
site, there are approximately 5,000 local
Senior Nutrition Programs in the United
States. The volunteers who work for the
programs across the country number be-
tween 800,000 and 1.7 million making it
the largest volunteer army in the nation.

1982 29 Years Ago
The idea of staging a free
Christmas concert for area
senior citizens started with
Pittston Area School District
Superintendent Gerard Musto
and District Principal Frank
Serino. The idea flourished
when Charles Giordina volun-
teered his services to drive the
bus supplied by the district to
transport seniors. The students
of the alternative learning pro-
gram offered to assist with
refreshments, the stage band
was totally on board and ready
to perform Christmas favorites.
The Sunday Dispatch In-
quiring Photographer asked,
Did you play the Million Dol-
lar Lotto? And if you would
have won the 9.2 million what
would you do with the money?
Diane Paxson of Dupont
answered, I didnt play, but if I
won I would buy a new home
and travel around the world.
Sam Giunta of West Pittston
added, I did play. I would
make a list of all the people
who tried to impress me with
their money then I would never
talk to them again.
Cheryl Hines of West Pitt-
ston stated, No, but I would
buy a new sports car, wardrobe
and pay for my college tuition.
Vince Pepe of Exeter said,
Yes, and I would put it all on
Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
Andy Hetro added, Yes I
played. The first thing Id do is
quit work, build a home in the
country and play softball seven
days a week.
1992 29 Years Ago
Christmas was coming and
Sam Agolino Jr., Luzerne
County Building and Grounds
Superintendent, was pleased
when he heard that Anna So-
kach of Exeter donated a 15-
foot Blue Spruce tree from her
yard to place in the Luzerne
County Courthouse. The tree
is definitely one of the most
beautiful and biggest weve
ever had, said Sam. Decorated
with dozens of lights and orna-
ments the tree stood in the
northwest corner of the cour-
thouse rotunda. Annas tree was
one of more than 200 offered to
the county.
Job openings advertised by
the Pittston Job Center in 1992:
Tractor Trailer Driver, 22 to 27
cents per mile over the road,
Truck Mechanic $7 per hour,
Office Clerk $6 per hour full
time, HVAC installer $6 per
hour and Plumber $8.50 per
hour.
Answer #1
The Pittston city employees
received news they were to be
enrolled in the Social Security
program starting in 1953. Due
to an Act of Congress, city
employees once prohibited
from the benefit no longer were
if municipal officials agreed.
The benefit estimated to cost
the city $1,900 a year, with
payment of 1.5 per cent on
wages. Employees matched the
contribution.
Answer #2
Charles A. McCarthy, local
historian and member of the
Friendly Sons of St. Patrick,
explained The Meeting of the
Waters written by Thomas
Moore, contained the line The
vale of Avoca. He further
explained a state land office
clerk, while surveying the re-
gion, listed plots with poetic
names instead of the usual
number format and placed the
name of Avoca on the map
covering that area.
If you want to build a ship,
dont drum up people together
to collect wood and dont as-
sign them tasks and work, but
rather teach them to long for
the endless immensity of the
sea.

erything is brand new.
The restaurant, which opens
weekdays at 7:00 a.m. sharp, had
two early birds. Janet Joyce and
her son Jack walked in at 6:50
a.m. We just had to be the first
customers in the door, said Ja-
net. This is an exciting day.
Her sonJackhada bet withan-
other regular patron, Bobby Fab-
er, on who would be first to ar-
rive. Faber was just a bit late.
Kate Gabriele thoroughly en-
joys a good breakfast and often
stops at Agolinos to get her day
started. Kate better known to
many in the area as Chef Kate
from Rustic Kitchen Restaurant
at the Mohegan Sun Casino
was happy to see the Agolino
family back on their feet. Sup-
porting our local businesses is
not only a responsibility but it
truly is the American way. We
stand together and persevere
come what may, said Gabriele.
Sandra Grove, a life-long resi-
dent of West Pittston, is happy to
see the establishment reopen.
The town is recovering and now
Agolinos is opened. Its a good
feeling, said Grove.
This is a great establish-
ment, said Exeter Mayor Cas-
sandra Coleman, who also stop-
pedinonFriday. Imamazedon
how quick they came back. This
place has great memories for me
of when my grandfather (former
Exeter Mayor, the late Joe
Coyne) would dine with us here.
The restaurant is simply better
than ever.
Were thrilled to be back.
Weve missed everyone, family
member Corinne Agolino Salko
said.

The 12th annual Anthony Badger
Marseco Memorial Boys and Girls
Tip-Off Tournament tips off the
2011-12 high school basketball sea-
son for all six local varsity hoop
teams on Friday and Saturday at Old
Forge High School.
The Pittston Area girls will be the
f irst team to tip off on Friday night at
6:15 p.m. The Lady Patriots match-
up against last years tournament
winner, Mid Valley. The Spartanettes
reached the PIAA Class 2A Eastern
Final last year before falling to Dun-
more at the Scranton CYC. Mid Val-
ley went 25-5 last season with all
f ive losses coming to Dunmore.
Pittston Area returns its leading-
scorer in junior Mia Hopkins, and
senior sharp-shooter Grace ONeill.
Hopkins averaged 18.9 points per
game, and is 283 points shy of 1,000
for her career. ONeill scored just
under 10 points per game last season,
and has 77 three-pointers in the past
two seasons.
Wyoming Area and host Old Forge
will face off in Fridays nightcap at 8
p.m. The game is a rematch of last
seasons opening round thriller
which saw the Blue Devils rally for a
49-46 win over the Lady Warriors.
Both teams could be in for a re-
building season as Ryan Kennedy
takes the over reins of the Wyoming
Area program, and Old Forge needs
to replace four starters from last sea-
sons 13-13 squad.
Kennedy, an assistant the past few
seasons, will have his transition
eased by the return two-year point
guard Serra Degnan to the Lady
Warriors lineup. The junior was
WAs second-leading scorer with just
under eight points per game.
The Blue Devils lone returning
starting is sophomore Lauren Carey.
Carey averaged just under six points
a game as a freshman. Senior center
Morgan Malia also returns. Malia
saw quality minutes off the bench
last season.
The winners of Fridays semif inals
will meet on Sunday at 5 p.m. for the
tournament championship. The con-
solation game will be held Sunday at
1 p.m.
The boys side of the tournament
tips off on Saturday at 6:15 p.m.
when Northwest takes on Pittston
Area. Wyoming Area and Old Forge
will meet in the 17h annual Badger
Game at 8 p.m.
Coaches fromOld Forge, Wyoming Area, Pittston Area, Northwest and Mid Valley get together to discuss the 12th Annual Anthony "Badger" Marseco Memorial Boys' and

Pittston Area has always taken great
pride inhavinga solidwrestlingprogram.
Second-year head coach James Woodall
expects the success to continue for the
2011-2012 season.
The Patriots will have to do so without
some of their major contributors from
last season. Domonick Lussi, Michael
Domarasky, Jason Laboranti, Bob Falvo
and Brandon Dolan have all graduated.
We definitely lost a lot last year,
Woodall said. They were good wrestlers
and were even better leaders.
The losses leave the Patriots with not
much room to wiggle the lineup for fa-
vorable matchups.
We are definitely a little down com-
pared to what we had last year. Last year
we had a lot of depth and we were able to
move kids around the lineup, Woodall
said. This year we are lacking depth and
dont have a lot of different options.
Despite not having the luxurious roster
of just a year ago, Woodall expects his
teamtobe fine. Withthe wrestlingseason
just around the corner, he is having a hard
time figuring out who is the clear-cut fa-
vorite in the division.
From what I am looking at right now,
its hard to say who has the best team out
there, Woodall said. Its still early, but it
will be interesting this year to see what
happens.
The Patriots will be led by Senior cap-
tain Jamie Scarantino in the113 lbs. class.
Steve Dileo will be this years lightweight
at 106, Tyler Lutecki will get the nod at
120, Daniel Gambini and Justin Paglienti
will compete for the 126 spot.
Justin is a new wrestler and Gambini
is a freshman who didnt wrestle junior
high because he went to catholic school,
Woodall said.
Donnie Parham and Bradley Rush will
battle for the132 lbs. spot, and Kevin We-
solowski will fill in at 138, while junior
captain Angelo Lussi takes the 145 slot.
Kevin wrestled a lot over the summer
so I expect him to have a good season,
Woodall said. Angelo is also a captain
and spent a lot of time in the weight room
this offseason and should have a great

First-year Wyoming Area Head Coach
Steve Mytych wont settle for another los-
ing record this season.
The Warriors finished 6-16 last season,
and to the newmat coach, that is unaccept-
able. The poor record kept Wyoming Area
out of the District 2 Duals, and Mytych be-
lieves this years team shouldnt settle for
less that than. Mytych said the teams num-
ber one goal this season is to get back to
district duals.
Last year theywere 6-16andmissedout
on district duals, so I think a realistic goal
would be to make district duals as a team
and once you make the district duels any-
thing can happen, Mytych said. Meyers
represented our district at the state duels.
This years grapplers will be led by re-
turning key wrestlers Nick Heck and Andy
Schutz. Mytych feels both wrestlers will
be key to any success the Warriors may en-
joy this winter.
However, it isnt just Heck and Schutz
that excite Mytych. He is pumped about
his entire lineup and feels the Warriors
have the ability to surprise some people
this season.
We are going to have a full lineup this
year with a lot of tough kids, Mytych said.
I really think we are going to surprise
some teams with our talent, as well as our
depth. We had a huge turnout and this is
probably the most kids the program has
had since the 70s.
Mytych inherits a young team starting
right at the bottom in the 106 lb. class with
Sean Vazquez. Carmen Mauriello will be
the go to guy at 117 lbs, Steve Barush will
wrestle 120, Schutz at 132, Heck at 138,
Mike Harding at 145, Ryan Filipiak at 152
and Nikko Mizzone at 160 round out the
lighter weights.
Andy Schutz is ranked fifth right now
and I would like to get him in the state fi-
nals, Mytych said. He has been working
really hard and he will have a great sea-
son.
Warriors football star Nick OBrian will
wrestle at 171. Jude Moran takes the 182
lbs. division, and Jeff Skursky gets the nod
at 195 lbs. Corey Popovich will be the go to
guy at 220 lbs. There will be a battle for the
Wyoming Area sets
lofty goals on mat
Mytych expects WA to compete
for District 2 2A Duals title

The Patriots and the Blue
Devils met in last seasons
championship tilt with Old
Forge winning its sixth title.
Pittston Area had won the
previous two crowns, and has
won the championship three
times in the tournaments 11-
year history. Seton Catholic
won the f irst two tourna-
ments, and the Warriors have
yet to win the crown.
Pittston Area returns f ive
of its top six players from a
year ago, including leading
scorers Steve Stravinski and
Steve Sklanka. Both aver-
aged 10-plus points as ju-
niors. The Patriots also re-
turn 64 senior forward Chris
Kovaleski, and 60 junior
guards Jordan Houseman
and Shaun McDermott.
Northwest also returns a
stable of experienced players
from last years squad which
won the consolation game
over Wyoming Area, 43-41.
The Warriors also feature a
new coach in Alex Brogna.
Brogna served as an assistant
at Wyoming Area the past
few seasons, and previously
was the head coach at Pitt-
ston Area.
Brogna welcomes back 10
players with varsity experi-
ence, but Wyoming Area will
be in rebuilding mode as on-
ly senior Lou Vullo averaged
at least f ive points per game
last season. The Warriors
won just three games a year
ago.
The defending champion
Blue Devils are also in re-
building mode after losing
all f ive starters from last
seasons 17-win team. Se-
niors Dave Argust, J Argon-
ish and Colin Carey give Old
Forge three returning players
with varsity experience.

game will be held Sunday at

Fourteen weeks of the Fall Sports Sea-
son produced some memorable perform-
ances by the teams and their respective
athletes from the Greater Pittston area.
From the first swing of the golf club in
August to the last touchdown scored on
the final Friday in November, the Patriots,
Warriors and Blue Devils gave all of our
local sports fans something to cheer
about.
Over 250 student-athletes contributed
in many victories, playoff appearances,
and record-setting performances on the
pitch, gridiron, trails, and courts. Many in
doing so fought off the adversity present-
ed by Septembers flooding, and a season
filled with postponements and crazy res-
cheduling.
But through it all, there were perform-
ers who stood heads and shoulders above
the rest. Today, the Sunday Dispatch rec-
ognizes those student-athletes.
Five student-athletes are honored with
the inaugural Sunday Dispatch Athletes
of the Fall award. A male and female
representative has been chosen for both
Pittston Area and Wyoming Area, and a
male representative for Old Forge. Old
Forge does not sponsor a female sport
during the fall season.
The Pittston Area Athletes of the Fall
are golfer Brandon Matthews and cross
country runner Catherine Lombardo.
The Wyoming Area Athletes of the Fall
are quarterback Nick OBrien and cross
country runner Sara Radzwilka. Old
Forges Athlete of the Fall is quarter-
back Colin Carey. Read about them on
pages 44-46.
Other fall athletes have also been cho-
sen as Stars of the Fall and others have
received Honorable Mention status.
Pittston Area
Pittston Areas Stars of the Fall in-
clude a list of six males and five females
representing golf, cross country, field
hockey, soccer, tennis football and vol-
leyball.
Soccer studs Jordan Consagra and
Pietro Colella lead the Patriot Stars.
Consagra scored 30 goals and assisted on
nine others in leading Pittston Area to
eight victories. Colella put 26 soccer balls
in the back of the net, and assists on 10
other goals to give PAa potent 1-2 scoring
punch on the soccer pitch.
Fellow soccer player Chris Musto
joins his teammates on the Stars list,
but more as a football player. The two-
sport athlete was 26-for-27 on extra-
points during his senior season and
drilled three field goals. On the soccer
pitch, Musto assisted on six goals while
scoring another.
Football players Anthony Schwab and
Jordan Houseman were also Pittston
Area Stars this year. The Patriots senior
quarterback turned in a fine year in his
first season under center. Schwab com-
pleted better than 50 percent of his passes
while throwing for 1,095 yards and 10
touchdowns. His main target House-
man caught 35 passes for 457 yards and
six of those touchdowns. The junior led

It was going to be tough for Brandon Matthews to top his junior season playing golf
for Pittston Area.
After all, Matthews only became the first three-time winner of the Tryba Pre-Season
Tournament, dominated Wyoming Valley Conference play, won the District 2 title, and
oh yes, captured THE gold medal in winning the PIAA State Golf Title.
So what did Matthews do for an encore?
The senior became the first FOUR-time winner of the Tryba first. He then shot a 31
during a WVC match, and led the Patriots to another WVC Divisional crown.
During the WVC team championships, Matthews broke the course record at Fox
Hill. Not the highschool course record, THEcourse record, cardingameight-under 63.
Matthews finished his season by placing fourth at the District 2 championships, and
winning the East Regional Tournament to advance to the PIAA state championships
for a second consecutive season where he placed in a tie for seventh.

There wasnt a Wyoming Valley Conference Cross County meet where
Pittston Area runner Catherine Lombardi f inished out of the Top 3.
She began the season by placing ninth at the prestigious Robbins Memorial
Invitational with a time of 21:05.
The Lady Patriots harrier followed that up by winning two WVC clusters
f inished second in another, and third in the f inal event. Lombardo posted a
season-best 19:16 in WVC competition, while leading PA to a 12-2 record.
That 19:16 set a course record at Pittston Area which she followed up with a
19:04 to win the Lackawanna County Commissioners Race later that week at
McDade Park in Scranton.
Lombardo f inished fourth overall at the WVC Coaches Meet with a time of
19:47, and placed seventh overall at the District 2 Class 3A meet at Elk Lake
with a time of 20:45.

Before the season even started his coach stated that Wyoming Area junior Nick
OBrien was going to be like Wheres Waldo? because the Warriors were going
to put him in different spots to utilize his talents. Well the Warriors opponents may
have been looking for Waldo, but they never found him.
OBrien rushed for 1,783 yards and 29 touchdowns as he powered the WA
offense to seven wins and a 40.9 points per game scoring average. The first-year,
full-time quarterback also threw for 815 yards and nine touchdowns on 47-of-94
passing to account for 70 percent of Wyoming Areas total yardage on the season.
But OBrien did more than call the signals. The 57 all-purpose back also lined
up at tailback, wide receiver where he caught two passes for 79 yards and a
touchdown and defensive back, leading the Warriors in solo tackles with 54. He
also intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown. He also returned a
punt for a touchdown, and boasted a 30.5 average punting the ball for the Warriors.

There is not much doubt that Cross Country is an individual sport when it
comes down to it. But many times, the ability of the individual runner is en-
hanced by the strength of the team around them.
Just image what a team would have done for Wyoming Areas Sara Radzwilka.
Running without the benefit of a full team of runners - the Warriors XC team
was low on athletes this season Radzwilka ran with the best of them, turning in
four Top 6 times during the Wyoming Valley Conference season.
The seniors best time came in a third-place effort her top finish of the
season in a meet in mid-September. Radzwilka turned in a time of 20:06, also
her best time of the year, in a meet again Nanticoke.
Radzwilka continued her success in the bigger competitions, finished 13th at
the WVC Coaches Meet with a time of 20:47, and 18th at the District 2 meet
with a time of 21:00.

Prior to the Old Forge football season, Head Coach Mike
Schuback said the x-factor to his teams success would be
the play of f irst-year quarterback Colin Carey.
Schuback was right on the mark, as Carey was a superhero
worthy of the X-Men for the Blue Devils in 2011.
The senior signal caller threw for 1,502 yards and 11 touch-
downs, while rushing for 851 yards and 16 touchdowns in
leading the Old Forge to a Lackawanna League Division III
title, and its f irst District 2 Class 1A title in f ive years.
Carey set a school record in the PIAA playoffs, throwing
for 329 yards on 17-of-31 passing. He also tossed four touch-
downs in the f irst round game while running for another
score.

For Steve Mytych, wrestling is
part of his life.
It has been ever since he was a
kid. But, now Mytych is getting
a first hand look at a side of the
sport he has not been on yet.
Last season Mytych spent the
season as an assistant coach on
John Stutzmans staff at Blooms-
burg University. His days of be-
ing an assistant are now over as
he will take over the Wyoming
Area wrestling program.
He inherits a program, which
went just 6-16 a year ago, but
Mytych is excited about the op-
portunity to try and turn the pro-
gram into a wrestling power-
house.
We have a lot of positive en-
ergy right nowand it is really cir-
culating throughout the pro-
gram, fromthe guys, the parents,
the booster club and the athletic
department. I feel like it is a very
exciting time for Wyoming Area
wrestling, finally, Mytych said.
He will be assisted by former
Meyers High School and Hof-
stra University standout, Joe Ro-
velli. Mytych feels an experi-
enced staff is the key to victory
and feels he and Rovelli make a
good duo.
My assistant coach is Joe Ro-
velli, he was a state champ for
Meyers high school in 2004 and
he went to Hofstra and I went to
Drexel, so we were in the same
conference, Mytych said. We
became buddies growing up and
then in college I got to see him
go to the National tournament
four times. Between us we have
eight NCAA D-1 berths, and to
have two coaches on the staff
like that, most college programs
dont have a staff like that.
He and Rovelli will try and
build a consistent winning pro-
gram, just like the program
across the Susquehanna River.
Traditionally, Pittston has
had great coaches and great
wrestlers, Mytych said. For
one day for Wyoming Area to
have a consistent winning pedi-
gree like Pittston has is definite-
ly a goal we would like to reach
as a team.
Mytych feels the fact he is still
a competitive wrestler will really
benefit the Warrior squad.
I am still competing myself.
So, I know both the aspects and
that helps to know when to push
guys or give them a day off,
Mytych said. I can relate to
them better because I am still in
it.
In addition to coaching, My-
tych is also competes profes-
sionally in mixed martial arts, as
well as for the Lehigh Valley
Athletic Club. He has been com-
peting in numerous tournaments
in hopes of qualifying for the
Olympic Trials.
I actually compete for the
LVAC on the Olympic wrestling
circuit. I placed top seed at the
World Team Trials, Mytych
said. Right now I will be going
to a couple tournaments to qual-
ify for the Olympic trials in
April.

year.
There is a cluster of Patriots
who will fill the 152-170 spots.
They include, Frank Ardo, Justin
Wilk, Sammy Falcone and Chris
Cummings.
Wilk is coming off of a great
football season and he is just
transitioning back into wres-
tling, Woodall said. We are not
sure what we will get fromCum-
mings, because he is still battling
back from a football injury.
Pat Nallin will go at 182, while
John Mitick will wrestle at 197.
Eric Danher is the 220 lb. spe-
cialist, while Chris Wesolowski
is the teams heavyweight.
Chris is our heavyweight,
Woodall said. He has grown a
lot and matured and I expect him
to have a good season.
Coach Woodall is especially
looking forward to the Coughlin
match.
Coughlin is always a big
match for us no matter what. We
are so close to each other and we
get to work out a lot and do dif-
ferent things together over the
summer, Woodall said. We
have a good relationship with
Coughlin, but when it comes
time to compete we are bumping
heads and its always a good
match. This year shouldnt be
any different.
One thing that excites Woodall
about this years squad is their
hard work and willingness to do
whatever it takes to be success-
ful.
One thing that this team this
year has, probably better than
any other team, is the teamunity.
They all get along good and have
a great work ethic, Woodall
said. Since I have been coach-
ing they have been the hardest
working group that I have been
around. All of themcommit to it,
buy into it and work really hard;
there is no slacking off or com-
plaining. They do the work and
they like it and they want to put
that effort in.
He doesnt want people to
think they arent talented, be-
cause he feels they are very tal-
ented.
We have some very talented
guys in the room and have some
great individuals who can have
great seasons and maybe get
down to states too.

heavyweight division between
Shaun Whiting and Carl Zielin-
ski.
There are a few matches My-
tych has circled as key matches
for the season. They are Lake
Lehman, Wyoming Valley
West and Meyers.
When we wrestle Lake Leh-
man it is going to be huge, My-
tych said. Meyers is huge, they
were the returning District 2 2A
team champs so thats a huge
matchup. I have a little friendly
rivalry with their coaches.
The rivalry with Wyoming
Valley West is not so friendly.
As a freshman, Mytych wres-
tled at Wyoming Valley West
before leaving for Northhamp-
ton High School.
I cant wait for the Wyoming
Valley West duel meet, My-
tych said. Its the last meet of
the year and I have some bad
blood with them so it would be
fun to beat them.
I really want to get to state
duals as a team. That is the ulti-
mate goal, Mytych said. I feel
like we are going to be good for
a while. Next year we will have
an awesome team. There three
eighth graders I would pull up
nowif I could. They are that tal-
ented. I would definitely like to
get a few guys to Hershey for
states.

The opening of the quest for
The Bridge started fast before
the fall sports season was inter-
rupted by rain, floods, and even
more rain. But when all of the
events finally were scheduled,
rescheduled and rescheduled
again, it was defending cham-
pion Pittston Area who was
way out in front in the race for
the 2011-2012 Bridge Award.
The Patriots got off to a fast
start as Brandon Matthews,
Ryan Tracy, and Matt Carroll
tore up the links in a win over
the Warriors on September 2.
A two-week delay of the
girls tennis match just put off
the Lady Patriots 4-1 win over
the Lady Warriors as Anna Po-
drasky and Miranda Warunek
led the Pittston Area to a 2-0
lead on Sept. 16.
The golf teams went at it
again four days later, with PA
defeating WA by 28 strokes on
Sept. 20.
the only time this season.
The Warriors and Lady War-
riors will try to get back into
the race for The Bridge during
the winter sports season with
four matchups and two other
possible events next Sunday.
The 12th annual Anthony
Badger Marseco Memorial
Boys and Girls Tip Off Tour-
nament gets under way on Fri-
day. Neither the boys nor girls
basketball teams are slated to
meet in the first round, both the
teams could meet in the cham-
pionship or consolation games
on Sunday.
Barring matchups next Sun-
day, the schools are scheduled
to meet again on January13 in a
swim meet at Wyoming Area.
The teams will take to the pool
again on February 8 at Pittston
Area before the Lady Patriots
and Lady Warriors meet on the
hardwoods on February 16 at
PA. The boys hoops teams will
then play on February 17 at
Wyoming Area in the annual
DeMinico Game.
The cross-country teams fi-
nally got together in the final
week of September with Pitt-
ston Area taking two wins from
a depleted WA squad on the
boys and girls side for a 5-0
lead. October brought more of
the same for the Patriots as Jor-
dan Consagra and Pietro Colel-
la led PA to a 10-3 soccer win,
and a six-game advantage over
the Warriors.
Serra Degnan finally got
Wyoming Area on the board,
leading the Lady Warriors
Field Hockey team to a 4-0 win
over the Lady Patriots in a Dis-
trict 2 Class 3A match. Degnan
had three of the Lady Warriors
goals to get WA a win in the
series which they now trailed
6-1.
Wyoming Area looked to
start a winning streak with the
annual match up on the gridi-
ron, but the Patriots pulled off
the 24-21 upset as the Anthony
Haughton-led PA defense kept
Warriors superstar Nick
OBrien out of the endzone for

arch-rival Riverside, Delaware

Argonish, the schools all-
time leader in goals scored,
turned in another solid year on

The senior scored 15 goals and
added six assists in his final
campaign. Argonish also made
a crucial putt on the final hole of
Old Forges win over Riverside
on links.
Mancuso tallied a school-best
51 points as the Blue Devils pla-
cekicker on 36-for-41 point-af-
ter tries, and a school-record

lections for Old Forge.
Argust caught a career-high
40 passes for 660 yards and sev-
en touchdowns during the Blue
Devils run to a District Class 1A
title. He also returned an inter-
ception and a punt for touch-
downs in a comeback-win over
Mid Valley, and hauled in a
school-record 91-yard touch-
down reception. Argust also fin-
ished his senior season with 25
tackles, three interceptions, and
a 31.8-yard punting average.
Febbo rushed for 1,077 yards
and 12 touchdowns on 214 car-
ries during his senior season. He
also caught 13 passes out of the
backfield for 156 yards and a
touchdown, including two huge
passes during the Blue Devils
game-winning drive against
Lackawanna Trail in the D2
playoffs.
Trotta finished his senior year
with a career-best 138 tackles,
17 of which went for a loss. The
two-year inside linebacker led
the Big Blue Wrecking Crew
defense which held arch-rival
Riverside without a first down
through three-and-a-half quar-
ters of the D2 final.
Six athletes received honor-
able mention status for Old
Forge, Adam Barsigian (golf,
soccer); Ian Nemetz (golf, soc-
cer); Bob Cipollina (soccer);

Rose Marie Stuccio Andrush,
Theresa Stuccio Grabo and Fred
Stuccio, children of the late Se-
rafino and Mary Stuccio, of Pitt-
ston, and grandson Fred An-
drush recently traveled to Sicily
and Reggio Calabria to meet
their parents families for the
first time. Their spouses, George
Andrush, Daniel Grabo and Ar-
lene Stuccio also made the trip.
After an Internet search, they
were able to locate the nephews,
nieces and cousins of their fa-
ther, Serafino (Stucci) Stuccio,
in San Ferdinando, Reggio Cala-
bria.
To their surprise, a banquet
was held at The Peperoncino Re-
storante in their honor and in re-
membrance of their Stucci an-
cestors with more than 50 rela-
tives in attendance. The travelers
were treated to the most deli-
cious plates typical of the Cala-
brian tradition.
The family also prepared a
video presentation of the high-
lights of the Stucci family, start-
ing with their grandparents Fer-
dinando and Maria Stucci and
their father Serafino, the eldest
son of Ferdinando and Mari Ro-
sa.
Serafino immigrated to the
United States as a young man
and settled in Pittston, never to
return to his native land. More
than100 relatives live in San Fer-
dinando, Reggio Calabria while
others live in Genoa, Italy. The
local television station was on
hand to capture the occasion.
In Serradifalco, Sicily, they
met their mother, Mary DeFran-
cesco Stuccios first cousin An-
gela Difrancesco and her family.
They had the opportunity to en-
joy the local food and eat fresh
walnuts from the walnut tree on
their patio.
Another highlight was partici-
pating in the procession of Our
Lady of the Rosary in Montedo-
ro, Sicily. In addition to connect-
ing with family, they toured the
Valley of the Temples, a vast ar-
cheological complex featuring
5th century BC Temple Castor
and Pollux the Temple of Her-
cules and Concord and the Tem-
ple of Hera.
They visited Mount Etna Vol-
cano, visited the luxurious sea-
side resort of Taromina, the
Queen of the Mediterranean,
and sampled the local wine at a
vineyard in Sicily.
The travelers said it was the
opportunity of a lifetime to meet
and spend time with their fam-
ilies and connect with their heri-
tage.
Note: Stuccio is Stucci in Ca-
labria and DeFrancesco is Di-
francesco in Sicily.
Stuccio family of Pittston travels to Sicily and Calabria
This family photo, taken during the visit of the Stuccio family of Pittston to the land of their ancestors, includes some members of the Stucci family of Italy. The visitors
were surprised to learn that one of their father's nephews, Jerome Stucci, lives in Cranford, N.J. with his wife and children. Jerome met themfor the first time at the
Newark International Airport prior to their departure for Italy.
Theresa Grabo, left, Fred Stuccio, center, and Rose Marie An-
drush are shown in front of the home of their father, Serafino
Stuccio.
Members of the Difrancesco family of Serradifalco, Sicily, are
shown here with the Stuccio, Grabo and Andrush families.
Making a recent trip to Sicily to meet family members for the first
time are, fromleft, George Andrush, Rose Marie Andrush, Fred
