CLARKS SUMMIT- Several
Clarks Summit residents and
supporters of the Abington
Area Joint Recreation Board
(AAJRB) attended the Nov. 27
Borough of Clarks Summit
Council work session in hopes
of discouraging Council from
cutting its annual funding of the
board almost in half.
The Recreation Board was
formed in1972 when, accord-
ing to its website, the Com-
monwealth of Pennsylvania
deeded surplus land to the
Borough of Clarks Green, Bor-
ough of Clarks Summit, Abing-
ton Twp. (nowWaverly), Glen-
burn Twp. and South Abington
Twp. Those municipalities then
formed the Abington Area
Joint Recreation Board to de-
velop and manage recreation
for the Abington region.
Today, the board continues to
manage Hillside Park, formerly
known as Abington Area Com-
munity Park. It relies on volun-
teer help, grant money, dona-
tions and fundraising, as well as
contributions fromthe afore-
mentioned municipalities to
keep the park running.
At last months Council
meeting, Borough Manager
Virginia Kehoe announced that
the newbudget, ready for pre-
liminary reviewand set for vote
Dec. 5, does not call for any tax
increases, but is extremely tight
and includes funding cuts in
various areas such as recre-
ation.
Park
supporters
lobby for
full funding
from C.S.
Abington Area Joint
Recreation Board, residents in
attendance suggested council
find different areas from
which to cut budget.

ries by J. K. Rowling
Embark on a magical
journey that has captiv-
ated many readers of

CARD
What you will need:
Two paper plates (one
regular or large size, one
small size), construction
paper scraps, three cotton
balls, safety scissors, glue
and a black crayon or
marker.
Instructions: First, ask
an adult for help and cut
ears, feet, eyes, whiskers
and a nose for your rabbit
fromconstruction paper.
Each ear should be about
six inches long and 21/2
inches wide at the center.
Glue the ears to the front
of the small plate and
glue the feet, eyes, whisk-
ers and a nose to the
back, which will be the
rabbits face. Then glue
the small plate, face-up,
to the back of the large
plate, which is the rabbits
body. Make sure the
bottomedges line up.
Next, glue three cotton
balls to your rabbit for
fur: one between the ears,
and one on each side of
the nose. Last, color on a
mouth and any other
features youd like to add
with a crayon or marker.
Your pet bunny rabbit

When you hear the word
snake, whats the first thing that
goes through your head?
Snakes are truly fascinating
creatures and often misunder-
stood. They are thought of as
slimy and evil. In reality, they
are smooth and soft, and can be
very docile. They also keep our
planet safe. If there were no
snakes, the medical world
would suffer drastically. The
snake eats mice and rats, which
carry deadly diseases and eat
crops. Snake venomis used in
medicine, possibly treating
everything fromminor strokes
to heart attacks. French scien-
tists believe that Copperhead
venommight be useful for
fighting breast cancer, and the
Malaysian pit vipers venom
may be able to treat strokes.
There are two types of snakes:
venomous snakes and constric-
tors. Venomous snakes include
the King cobra, Fer-de-lance,
Copperhead, and Diamondback
rattlesnake. There are also many
species of constrictors, such as
the Mexican Black King snake,
Carpet Python and Anaconda.
One of the most stunning
snakes in the world is the Brazi-
lian RainbowBoa. This snake is
medium-sized, with a color that
ranges fromred to deep mahog-
any brown, and black rings. But
the most impressive feature is
the glossy rainbowsheen that
gives the snake its name.
Snakes are stunning reptiles,
but should be regarded with
caution. Like dogs or cats, each
snake has the instincts of a pred-
ator. They are powerful and
complex creatures.
If you ever come in contact
with an unfamiliar snake, leave
it and back away. Learn to rec-
ognize and respect the snakes
space.
Snakes are creatures of won-
der and should be treated with
respect. They are commonly
docile, but certain snakes are
quite temperamental. Snakes
are a diverse and complex spe-
cies of animals. The snake is a
striking animal, strong and
valuable to the earth.
Respect the snake as an ex-
quisite creature and as a balance
in nature.
MY OPINION
Snake venom is used in medicine,
possibly treating everything from
minor strokes to heart attacks.
KENTO MATSUI
S
usan J. Colbassanis first
best friend was a German
shepherd named King.
When I was four or five-
years-old, we had moved into a
house owned by German people
and they had a German shep-
herd, said Dr. Colbassani.
When we moved in, Mrs. Sam-
mer warned my mother that her
dog, King, was not very social.
He was kind of nasty and didnt
like strangers, and to please be
careful when the kids are out in
the yard. We were there about
two weeks and my mother
looked out the window, and
there I was riding the dog
across the yard. He only knew
German (language) and I
learned how to speak to him in
German. He was my best
friend.
Dr. Colbassani wanted to be a
veterinarian for as long as she
could remember. Ive always
seemed to have an affinity for
the animals, especially the ones
in the neighborhood that every-
one was afraid of, she said.
One of her fathers best
friends was a veterinarian
named Dr. Harry Kroll.
Whenever our dog had to go
to the vet, I always wanted to go
with him, she said. We would
stay there
for a couple
of hours and
I watched
Dr. Kroll do
surgeries and
see other pa-
tients. I was
fascinated by
it.
She is the chief vet and
owner of Hometown Animal
Hospital, Olyphant, but before
opening her own practice in
1996, she worked for two vets.
Known as Doc by her staff
and many of her patients own-
ers, she treats dogs, cats, rabbits
and rodents, such as guinea
pigs, hamsters and ferrets.
I worked on a couple of pot
belly pigs when I was in Flor-
ida, she said. When I first
started in practice, I was the
only one in the area that would
see animals like a hamster or
guinea pig.
She loves working with ani-
mals and the challenges the job
brings.
Animals are such pure little
beings, she said. Its actually
heartwarming being around
them. Some of them love com-
ing herethey jump on the
table and wag their tails looking
for cookiesand others head
for the door.

regular medicine
is not enough.

If you love animals then
go out and save them. That
seems to be the idea for
Wyoming Seminary student,
Riley Calpin, 12, who is one
animal saver. She has been
providing the Griffin Pond
Animal Shelter, Clarks Sum-
mit, with food from her an-
nual food drive for six years.
Griffin Pond Animal Shel-
ter in South Abington Town-
ship provides a home and
care for animals until they
are adopted. The local shel-
ter hosts more cats than
dogs, according to Calpin,
and all animals need food
and a loving home.
This was the 6th year that
Calpin organized a food
drive for the shelter. She
collects food for the animals
at her birthday celebration
each year.
Calpin, a Waverly resi-
dent, became interested in
helping animals from the
shelter after seeing the con-
ditions of animals and find-
ing out that money can be
tight when the shelter has a
lot of animals for which to
care. Calpin has adopted two
dogs that were rescues, one
of those dogs from the Grif-
fin Pond Animal Shelter.
I enjoy helping the ani-
mals because when theyre
happy, Im happy, said Cal-
pin.
Calpin usually hosts the
food drive on her birthday,
but one year she organized a
food drive for the animals
around Thanksgiving in the
main lobby of her school.
She was surprised and
pleased at all of the people
who were eager to help.
Calpins friends are also
reliable donors and helpers
in her annual food drive.
Calpin currently has a dog
that she loves, Barbie, who
is a Dalmatian-Border Col-
lie mix. Her favorite animal
is a dog and her favorite dog
is a beagle. A rescued bea-
gle was one of her past pets.
When Calpin isnt saving
animals, she enjoys drawing,
running cross country, act-
ing, basketball, and softball.
She also helped start the
environmental club at her
school and she actively par-
ticipates in dancing. She
takes pointe, jazz and ballet.
When Im old enough Id
like a part-time job at the
shelter. I like helping the
animals, said Calpin.

Sean Alfred and Joey
Johnson, of Waverly, are like
zookeepers in their own
home, which is also home to
a variety of unusual pets
from a saltwater fish tank
full of corals and other exot-
ic-looking underwater crea-
tures, to a skunk.
But dont worry, the skunk
doesnt smell or spray like a
wild skunk, because his
scent glands were removed
when he was a baby.
Take a look at these pets
and see if they are anything
like the ones you or your
friends have at home:

When Sean and Joey purchased Deema the skunk, who is now
one-and-a-half years old, from a breeder in Bloomsburg, he was
only six weeks old. They said they fed him from a bottle for the first
month or so, which helped him form an inseparable bond with his
owners. Although he doesnt have any black fur like most skunks
seen in the wild, some of his brothers and sisters do. According to
Sean, Deema comes from a domesticated family of skunks that
goes back about 100 years.
Joey Johnson holds his baby
red- eyed crocodile skink, which
could grow to be about 7 inches
long as an adult.
Originating in the Indo-Pacific
Ocean, the peacock mantis
shrimp is a crustacean that gets
its name from its shrimp-like
body, colorful feather-like tail
and manner of folding its front
claws under its body like a
praying mantis. It eats fish,
which it hunts with its sharp
claws and can make a loud
popping noise, sometimes
described as a sonic boom by
hitting its claws off rocks. Sean
Alfred said his pet peacock
mantis shrimp is like a little
architect, daily rearranging the
rocks that make up its house
inside the tank.

The Canadian Pacific Railways U.S.
Holiday Train made its goodwill jour-
ney for food shelves across the United
States Nov. 28, departing from the
Steamtown National Historic Site for
Binghamton, N.Y., crossing the histor-
ic Nicholson Bridge (also known as
the Tunkhannock Viaduct) on its way.
Now in its 14th year of operation,
the Holiday Train program, powered
by an army of employee volunteers,
has raised more than $6.4 million and
almost 2.6 million pounds of food
donations for local food banks nation-
ally. In 2011, the train helped raise
more than 4,000 pounds of food and
collected $1,500 in cash donations, in
addition to a CP corporate contribu-
tion of $1,000 to the United Neigh-
borhood Centers of Northeast Penn-
sylvania.
Each year, thousands of people
gather trackside at depots, railroad
crossings and other unusual venues
along the route to enjoy the arrival of
the brightly decorated train lighting
up the winter night at Steamtown Na-
tional Historic Site. The musicians,
who ride in vintage private cars at the
end of the 14-car train, hop out and
climb aboard a boxcar in the middle
of the train that opens to reveal a
stage where they will perform a live
holiday concert and invite visitors to
sing along. This years entertainers
included The Claytones and Canadian
Country Music Hall of Famer, Tracey
Brown.

P
erhaps the busiest man
in South Abington
Twp., James Waters got
a little bit busier in late Sep-
tember when he was elected
fire chief of the Chinchilla
Hose Company.
The police officer, fire-
fighter and police and fire
academy instructor took the
reins from predecessor Keith
Grierson, who stepped down
after accepting a job out of
the area.
Waters term will last for
one year, but most chiefs stay
for about five or six years, he
said.
A fourth-generation fire-
fighter, Waters has volun-
teered with the company for
16 years. He serves the town-
ship as a full-time police
officer in charge of the K9
program. Prior to being elect-
ed chief, Water served as an
assistant chief in charge of
the emergency medical ser-
vices side of the department.
The fire chief is in charge
of a department that is more
than 100 members strong.
About 40 of the members
actively respond to calls.
When hes not fighting
fires or on patrol, Waters is
likely at Lackawanna Col-
leges police academy or in
various counties around the
state teaching firefighting
techniques.
Ive been teaching quite a
bit for the last six years, he
said. Its just a passion and
something I love to do.
Waters has continued
Griersons efforts to digitize
the departments disaster
preparedness planning, which
in firefighting language is
called pre-planning. Waters
has carried on Griersons
mission of taking pre-plan-
ning into the 21st century by
stockpiling data on township
buildings in preparation for a
disaster.
Weve actually gotten
some more preplans from
businesses, he said. Its a
slow process. Theres a lot of
work that goes into it.
The duties of a chief extend
beyond fighting fires and
administrative work back at
the station. Waters is the de-
partments ambassador to the
South Abington community,
which is the most populous
in the Abingtons. Waters
visits schools, nursing homes
and businesses to meet with
the public.
I kind of took over fire
prevention week, he said,
explaining that he spoke at
schools in and nursing homes
to educate and to introduce
himself to township residents.
The department responds to
about 1,500 calls, and about
half are for emergency med-
ical services, Waters said.
I think we average two,
almost three a day, he said.
It usually happens that we
go two days without any calls
and one day with ten.
The new chief said he will
do his best to keep residents
safe.
I look forward to serving
them as the chief and I want
to provide them with the best
protection that can possibly
be provided, he said. Im
basically representing and
protecting over 10,000 resi-
dents.
Waters lives in South
Abington Twp. with his wife
and his two children.

Late Night Food at Stinkys,
628 Spruce St., Scranton, was
inadvertently named by Scran-
ton business owner Rob Elys
eight-year-old daughter, who
said one day after getting a
whiff of the strong garlic smell
coming from the kitchen,
That chili is so stinky.
Ely said the establishment is
also partly named after a fic-
tional restaurant in the televi-
sion cartoon show Sponge-
bob Square Pants.
The restaurants mascot is a
cartoon skunk wearing a gas
mask.
Although well- known for
its chili, the takeout restaurant
also offers a diverse menu
with a variety of options, from
hot dogs to vegetarian dishes.
According to Ely, all the food
is homemade. Even the chick-
en, he said, does not come
processed, but is cooked in
house.
The most unique aspect
about Stinkys, however, said
Ely, is its hours of operation.
They vary, but the business is
generally open from 8 or 9
p.m. to 3 a.m. and occasional-
ly in the daytime during spe-
cial local events.
Ely said when he opened it,
his aim for the restaurant was
to create a late night spot
like the ones he used to fre-
quent in New York City, his
hometown. He said he believes
there is a local need for it,
because there is nothing else
like it open late at night in
downtown Scranton.
He pointed out additional
need arises as a result of the
areas demographics as a col-
lege town, with several
schools nearby. This, he said,
is part of the reason his restau-
rant was chosen as one of the
first to try a new electronic
ordering system, Go Paygo.
He said he is still working
on getting the system syn-
chronized with his menu, but
once it is fully functional,
which he expects to be some-
time after Christmas, custom-
ers will be able to place and
pay for takeout orders via a
smartphone app (application),
and come in to pick them up
when they are ready. He be-
lieves this system will be espe-
cially useful to college stu-
dents and people visiting from
out of town who search for a
restaurant through the app.
Currently, he said, about half
or more of his customer base
consists of visitors from out of
town or regulars who travel
through Scranton on a steady
basis.
They get referred to me by
a bartender, he said, or get
lucky and find me on their
own.
But no matter who his cus-
tomers are, he is always grate-
ful for them.
I love my customers, and I
love cooking for them, he
said. And thats the truth.
Business owner hopes for sweet smell of success

the background, which was
from Dallas, Texas, was in the
neighborhood removing cars
that had been flooded by the
Hurricane Sandy storm surge.
Few businesses in this commu-
nity have reopened since the
storm which means food is in
short supply there. Local offi-
cials expect that many Rocka-
way businesses will not reo-
pen.

According to Recreation
Board President Bill Risse,
however, the boroughs funding
of the board is not simply a
voluntary donation, but a man-
datory contribution agreed
upon in1972 through a signed
document which states, Each
of the Participating Municipal-
ities shall share all expenses,
make all contributions, partici-
pate in income and hold an
undivided share of all property
and assets in a proportion that
is the average, rounded to two
decimal places, of (a) its per-
centage of the total population
of all Participating Municipal-
ities...
At the work session, resi-
dents in attendance suggested
council instead find different
areas fromwhich to cut fund-
ing or look for other ways to
raise the funds. Many even said
they would not mind an in-
crease in taxes in order to fund
the park.
Diane Vietz, of Clarks
Green, thanked the Council for
its ongoing support of the park
over the past 40 years, and
spoke of its benefits, stating,
Parks are a need, not a want.
She pointed out the amount
Council is looking to cut is
about 50 percent of the Recre-
ation Boards budget, but only
0.3 percent of the boroughs
budget, hardly enough to save
Clarks Summit, a town, but
enough to make a statement
against the park and against the
quality of life for people in the
community.
Risse presented to Council
handouts illustrating a break-
down of the Recreation Boards
2012 sources of income and
where that money was spent, as
well as some recent survey
results and other facts about the
Recreation Board and the park.
Referring to a colored diagram
outlining the operating and
administrative budget, he ques-
tioned howthe park will con-
tinue to operate, should the
Borough cut its funding in half.
Lets see, he said, if I were
going to cut this budget in half,
would I not pay the insurance?
Would I forego an audit? I
dont know. Thats kind of
tough. Howabout, would I not
put toilet paper in the bath-
rooms? Should we not cut the
grass? Should we not collect
the garbage? Should we not fix
things that break? Thats what
this budget does. This is bare
bonesthe maintenance, the
operation. Do we provide
drinking water? Do we let kids
wash their hands before they
eat a hot dog? You tell me...you
cut that in half, and what do
you have left? You dont have a
park.
Council members assured
Risse and the other park sup-
porters in attendance that they
agree about the importance of
the park and intend to work
through the budget issues.
Council President Gerrie
Carey said she would like
council to set up a time to meet
with the board members to
brainstorm and go over the
nuts and bolts. They then set
up a time for the beginning of
the week, in hopes of resolving
the issue before the budget
comes to a vote at the upcom-
ing Dec. 5 meeting.
In other business, Clarks
Summit Resident Sarah Dawg-
ert spoke to Council regarding
an idea for a small childrens
park to be built downtown. She
said she believes a park would
encourage parents of small
children to visit and shop, in-
creasing business revenue.
Carey suggested Dawgert
forma committee to brain-
stormwith Council about
where such a park could be
built and howto fund it.
Other items discussed at the
work session included: the
opening of the TANbids; ordi-
nances 2012-13 through17 and
resolution 2012-4, to be voted
on at the Dec. meeting; the
Abington Area Assisted Living
sewer pass-through request;
and the need to send out anoth-
er letter to surrounding munici-
palities about the possibility of
a police force consolidation.

Through a regional Miracle for
Munchkins in-store fundraiser, Dun-
kin Donuts of Northeastern Penn-
sylvania announced it has raised and
donated $10,500 to support Childrens
Miracle Network at Geisinger.
On October 31, over 50 Dunkin
Donuts restaurants in the region offered
a free medium hot chocolate to cus-
tomers who made a donation of $1 or
more to support Childrens Miracle
Network at Geisinger. The funds raised
by this event will help provide pediatric
equipment, programs and services at
the Janet Weis Childrens Hospital and
the Geisinger Health System.
This donation aligns with The Dun-
kin Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Com-
munity Foundations mission to serve
the basic needs of our communities
through food for the hungry, safety and
childrens health.

According to the Pennsylvania
State Police, during a regular yearly
audit, it was discovered that 46 of
Zielinskis residential electric bills, in
the amount of $8,909.58, had been
intermingled with the township bills
and paid with township funds. A
Bank of America township credit
card had also been issued to Zielinski
to facilitate township business.
A Ransom Township Forensic
Accounting Investigation Report
prepared by Marx Accounting and
Forensic Services for the period Jan.
1, 2007 through March 17, 2012, lists
a summary of questionable credit
card charges and checks, amounting
to $99,228.24, stating in the conclu-
sion that Zielinski should be held
accountable for the entire amount.

I always think of
Christmas in Our
Hometown as the
official kickoff of
the holidays in
Tunkhannock. The
town could not be
more festive with
carolers, ice sculp-
tures and wagon rides.
It looks just like a post-
card. Plus our shops are
just stocked with great gift
giving ideas.
As part of the celebra-
tion, the Dietrich will be
showing Emmet Otters
Jugband Christmas on Fri-
day, Dec. 7 and Saturday,
Dec. 8 at 5:30 p.m. and 7
p.m. Admission to this Jim
Henson movie is free
thanks to Ace-Robbins
Heating Oil and Propane
and the Jim Henson Legacy
Foundation. Tickets will be
first come, first served, and
its a movie that the entire
family can enjoy!
We will also be hosting
our annual Holiday Work-
shop on Saturday, Dec. 8
from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
All ages are invited to join
in the fun for cookie deco-
rating, holiday crafts, sing-
ing and balloon creations
by Silly Sally. This work-
shop is free and is spon-
sored by Ace-Robbins.
During Christmas in Our
Hometown, the theater will
also be presenting its sec-
ond annual Homemade
Christmas Cookie Walk.
Here is how it works. You
will go though the walk
and fill up a container of
delicious Christmas con-
fections for only $5. Not
only will you be getting
sweat treats but you will
also be supporting cultural
and educational program-
ming for children at the
Dietrich, which I think
makes all of the cookies
guilt-free!
Then on Tuesday, Dec.
18, we will go back to Bed-
ford Falls for our free
showings of Its A Won-
derful Life. We just love
seeing families and friends
come to the Dietrich on
this special day. Some
folks come every year and
make it part of their holi-
day tradition. There will be
three show times this year
at 2 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8
p.m. Admission is free and
so is the popcorn and soda.
Seating is first come, first
served. Its A Wonderful
Life is also sponsored by
Ace-Robbins.
Now, if you are looking
for activities for kids over
Christmas break, the Die-
trich will be offering Holi-
day Camp on Thursday,
Dec. 27 and Friday, Dec.

ventgoers at an upcoming
exhibit are likely to come
home with pieces of art to
wrap and cross off their holiday
gift list.
New Visions Studio and Gal-
lery, 201 Vine Street, Scranton,
will hold its second annual
Give the Gift of Art holiday
art sale Dec. 7 through 24, with
an opening recep-
tion Dec. 7 from 6
to 10 p.m. The ex-
hibit will be open
Tuesdays through
Sundays and
Christmas Eve from
12 to 6 p.m. and
later during classes
and special events.
According to
Melanie Boisseau,
gallery spokesper-
son, the exhibit and
sale will offer pretty much
anything you can think of in
the category of art: drawings,
paintings, jewelry, ornaments,
cards, pottery, gift wraps and
more. She said what makes the
event different from similar art
sales is that customers are able
to bring their purchased items
home immediately, even taking
art right off the
walls, rather than
waiting until the shows
conclusion at the end of
the month.
One local artist participa-
ting in the event for the sec-
ond year is Emily Taylor, 22, of
Moosic. She will display and
sell coral-themed ceramic ves-
sels and ornaments.
Taylor, a Keystone Col-
lege student, said she
believes the best feature
of the show is that ev-
erything is reasonably
priced, soa lot of peo-
ple will be able to go
home with something.
According to Boisseau,
all of the art for sale is
priced at $50 and under.
Taylor added another
plus to the event is the
variety of work from the
various contributing artists.
I decided to [participate]
again this year because New
Visions is a great gallery
and it is a good way to get
my work out there and seen
by people, and any oppor-
tunity to do that is helpful.
Boisseau echoed these
thoughts, saying the gallery
exists to support the local art-
ists.
Other participating artists
include: Casey Heyen,
Sara Luciano, Michelle
Wheeler, Allison LaRus-
sa, Gina DAngelo, Emily
Smith, Melanie Rosato,
Christine Altmiller, Tina
Sherwood, Amy Wyman,
Ryan Tykosh, Lyndsey
Hughes, Beth Tyrrell, Pat

Admission to the opening
reception, which is held in con-
junction with First Friday,
Scranton, is free, and will in-
clude holiday treats, drinks and
live modern Christmas music
performed by local musician
Dom Fortese.

What year did "Emmet Otters Jugband Christmas" come out?
J
oanne Hemmings first became
interested in beading while stand-
ing in line at a grocery store. She
noticed waves of sparkling beads on a
womans arm.
Hemmings said, My attention was
caught by a bracelet a woman in front of
me was wearing. It was made of ex-
tremely tiny beads with a pattern to it
that appeared to be of ocean waves.
When she moved her armthe different
finishes on the beads sparkled in differ-
ent ways and made the waves appears to
be moving. The woman told Hem-
mings she had made it herself, and
Hemmings, who was captivated by the
dazzling bracelet, responded to the
woman with the questions, Whats it
called and howcan I learn to do it?
I scribbled furiously when she in-
formed me it had been woven on a loom
and gave the name of the author of the
book and pattern shed used, the type of
loomI needed and where to buy suppli-
es on the Internet, said Hemmings, 78,
RansomTownship.
Two weeks later my supplies came
and I realized I didnt have a clue where
to start with them. Atrip to the local
bead store wasnt a lot of help. The own-

Local meteorologist Joe
Snedeker, who is affil-
iated with WNEP-TV, is
the author of a new chil-
drens book about (nat-
urally!) the weather.
Titled The Everything
Kids Weather Book, it
covers everything from
tornadoes to snowstorms,
with puzzles, games and
facts that make learning
about weather fun. It is
a new addition at the
Abington Community
Library. Joe, a former
high school science
teacher, is now on the
faculty at Marywood
University teaching sci-
ence and meteorology, in
addition to his TV work.
With the help of his new
book, young readers will
get to know and under-
stand cloud types, cold
fronts, hurricanes and jet
stream winds, for a start.
He lists simple supplies
from around the house
that can be used to build
an amateur weather sta-
tion and explains just
what a professional me-
teorologist does. Each
chapter contains intrigu-
ing puzzles, word games
and activities for young-
sters (and their parents)
who are intrigued by the
weather.
Weather Wise is a
new five-book series by
Ellen Lawrence also just
added to the childrens
collection. Its photo-
graphic format and brief
text will likely appeal to
a younger reading audi-
ence than Joe Snedekers
book but its goal is the
same: make learning
about the weather fun.
Look for the following:
What Are Clouds?
Learn how clouds form
and the weather that dif-
ferent kinds of clouds
bring. What is the Wa-
ter Cycle? Water
moves from Earth into
the air and back to
Earth again in a contin-
uous cycle that never
stops. What is Weath-
er? Find out how
temperature plays a big
part in weather and learn
to keep track of local
weather. What is Cli-
mate? Scientists study
temperatures and precip-
itation records over 30
or more years to deter-
mine an areas climate.
Find out about five
kinds of climates. How
are Rain, Snow, and Hail
Alike? All three
come from water vapor,
though they look and
feel different from one
another.
PLEASE NOTE: The
librarys LEGO Club,
usually held on alternate
Sunday afternoons each
month, will not meet in
December. It will resume
in January, date to be
announced.
The librarys calendar
of December events and
programs for both chil-
dren and adults is now
available in print at the
Circulation Desk or on-
line (www.lclshome.org/
abington). The librarys
Winter Newsletter is also
ready.

Before I begin to update
you on activities at our library,
I want to give a huge shout
out to our volunteer fire de-
partment. During Hurricane
Sandy they worked round the
clock with not only the usual
after a big storm emergencies
(downed trees which de-
stroyed electrical wires), but
also with extraordinary care
for all of us. They checked
our homes (not just in Dalton,
but also in Glenburn, West
Abington, LaPlume, North
Abington and Waverly) to
make sure residents were OK,
especially those who needed
electricity to run medical
equipment. And for any of us
lucky enough to have gener-
ators, they made sure we were
operating them correctly. In
addition, they used the fire
hall as a warming station with
the support of the Red Cross
and other agencies. When you
see one of these volunteers,
please thank them; they epito-
mize the dedication of volun-
teers and we are most fortu-
understand her own mother.
This book discussion group
has decided to focus on Doris
Kearns Goodwins study of
Lincoln, A Team of Rivals
for both its Jan. 26 and Feb.
23 meetings. The January
meeting will be facilitated by
Celeste Cali.
Steven Spielbergs current
film Lincoln has been the
impetus for this book selec-
tion and Civil War buffs
should find both the film and
the book intriguing. And even
if youre not that compelled
by the historical significance
of Goodwins book, you may
find the interaction among the
various individuals in Lin-
colns cabinet fascinating. So
why not join us?
As we approach the end of
2012 , the library staff is con-
sidering program offerings for
2013. If you have any suggest-
ions for programs for children
or adults youd like to the
library offer, please call Janet
Geeza ( 563.2014 ) or Shu,

mas will have been celebrated.
So, both the library staff and

business, Creekside Gar-
ders, when it was built 16
years ago, Kukuchka
said.
Kevin Kukuchka first
started to help set up the
family display when he
was about 10 and always
got satisfaction from the
joy the lights provided to
members of the commu-
nity.
I enjoyed just being
out there doing it, he
said. Tunkhannock is a
small community, it was
even smaller back then,
and when we would go
out for breakfast, people
would always tell us how
much they enjoy the
lights, and that they
would bring their chil-
dren and grandchildren to
see them.
I think sharing the
holiday spirit with so
many people is really a
great thing.
Kukuchka believes the
tradition is traced back to
his grandfather, George.
He always had a really
nice display, Kukuckha
said. The centerpiece
was a nativity scene and
he had the big bulb
Christmas lights and cut-
outs in the yard. I think
it trickled down from
there.
According to Kukuck-
ha, the display at Creek-
side Gardens brings back
fond memories for Julie
Novack, who runs the
stores gift shop.
She told me that when
she was young, her par-
ents took her on holiday
lights tours, and would
always save our house for
the grand finale, he
said.
Kukuckha explained
that he first discussed
bringing back the holiday
display with his younger
brother, Jeffrey, at a fam-
ily gathering in July.
Jeffrey was the engi-
neer of the project, Ku-
kuchka said. He started
doing research on how to
set up the computer soft-
ware, including for the
Four Firs, a singing quar-
tet of lights mounted on
a greenhouse that plays
holiday songs Monday
through Saturday from 5
to 7 p.m.
The entire display,
which includes nearly
40,000 lights, is lit from
dusk to 10 p.m. and will
run through New Years
Eve night. Plans are al-
ready in the works to
make the display bigger
and better in the future.
Along with the help of
Kevins parents, wife
Sherri, brother Jeffrey
and wife Jenilee, brother
Eric and his wife Gretch-
en and their son Grayson,
8, and members of the
Creekside Gardens staff,
the project became a re-
ality.
We worked four days
into the evening to set up
the display, he said.
Despite the long hours,
the work was an enjoya-
ble experience for the
group.
We were like a bunch
of kids running around
with a sparkle in our
eyes, Kevin Kukuchka
said.

With the start of the season just a fewdays
away, the four local boys high school basketball
teams are striving the meet their goals. Abington
Heights and Scranton Prep return a majority of
their key players fromlast season while Lacka-
wanna Trail and Lakeland lost several starters to
graduation.
There are several changes to the division
groupings this season.
Abington Heights will be joined by Scranton,
Scranton Prep, Valley Viewand West Scranton
in Division1.
Lakeland will be joined by Carbondale, Dun-
more, Holy Cross, Mid Valley, Old Forge and
Riverside in Division 3.
Lackawanna Trail will be joined with Blue
Ridge, Elk Lake, Forest City, Montrose, Moun-
tain Viewand Susquehanna in Division 4.
Abington Heights
The Comets return four of five starters from
last years teamthat advanced to the third round
of the PIAAboys basketball playoffs and fin-
ished with a 24-5 overall record. They are junior
guard JCShow, senior guard Kevin Elwell, se-
nior forward TJ Murray and senior center Jason
Bamford. Guard Pat Calvey graduated off the
team. Head coach Ken Bianchi expects junior
guard Nathan Hollander, senior guard Jamie
Egan and junior center Evan Maxwell to factor
heavily into the rotation.
We would like to duplicate our results from
last year, but we didnt do as well as we would
have liked in our first fewscrimmages and we
knowwe wont sneak up on anybody, Bianchi
said. Well see howit plays out.
Bianchi expects Scranton Prep and Scranton
to provide the toughest competition in the Lack-
awanna League Division1.
The Comets will open their season Dec. 7 at
Holy Cross at 7 p.m.
Lackawanna Trail
The Lions return two starters fromlast years
teamthat finished12-12 in sophomore guard
Tyler Rzucidlo and sophomore guard/forward
Ross Fauquier. Lackawanna Trail must replace
center Stephen Miller, guards Nick Sujkowski,
Lyle Sweppenheiser and forward Matt Lochen.
Head coach AndrewKettel expects senior
guards Dalton Mecke and Dylan Harris along
with senior forward Matt Decker to compete
for starting spots. Junior guard John Kwiat-
kowski, senior center Devin Walsh, and sopho-
more guard/forward Aidan Holmes should all
factor into the Lions rotation.
Kettle hopes a challenging early-season slate
will prepare his squad.
We have a young teamage and experience
wise, he said. Our exhibition schedule is
pretty difficult so Imhopeful that by the time
we start league play after the holidays, we will
be playing our best basketball.
Despite losing four key starters, Kettel feels

al King dedicated
much of his life to the
Lackawanna Trail
School District. Through the
efforts of Lions head basket-
ball coach Andrew Kettel,
his memory will live on at
the school for years to come.
This year, the Lackawanna
Trail Invitational will be
renamed the Cal King Me-
morial Basketball Tourna-
ment, to honor a man who
gave so much to the school
he loved.
He was a big supporter of
anything, athletically and
academically, at Lackawanna
Trail, Kettel said. He start-
ed the youth basketball pro-
gram in the district and was
heavily involved in the bas-
ketball and
baseball
programs
throughout
his childrens
careers.
King, 75,
of Dalton,
graduated
from South
Hampton
High School
in New
York. He
died Oct. 22.
Kettels
relationship with King start-
ed well before he took over
as the schools boys basket-
ball coach in 2007.
I first met him in 1997
while I was in high school
working at the YMCA in
Dunmore, where he was a
member, Kettel said. We
would always talk about
sports, and he always spoke
highly of Lackawanna Trail.
According to Kettel, King
was a loyal supporter of the
basketball program through
his tenure as head coach.
When I got the job, he
was one of the first people to
call and congratulate me,
Kettel said. "During my first
five seasons, he would come
to all our games. My team
and I really appreciated his
support.
He will be greatly missed,
but hopefully his memory
will live on through this tour-
nament.
According to Cals son,
Tate, 46, of Scranton, his dad
thoroughly enjoyed being
involved with the school
district.
He liked the atmosphere
at the school and enjoyed
mentoring kids, Tate said.
His main focus was always
academics. He let them know
that academics and sports
provide a good foundation
for life.
Tate King, who played
baseball and basketball at
Lackawanna Trail, was
coached by his dad during
little league and eventually in
a collegiate summer baseball
league.
We would talk for hours
after games, Tate said. His
focus was always to learn
from the
losses and
make the next
outcome
better.
Tates twin
brother, Sean,
played base-
ball and wres-
tling at the
school and
sister, Robin,
played soft-
ball and field
hockey.
Kettel was
quick to add that Kings
commitment to the district
remained loyal even after his
children had graduated.
We wanted to do some-
thing to honor his memory
and family, and to thank
them for everything he did
for Lackawanna Trail, Ket-
tel said.
Tate King added that his
father was instrumental in
building the Career Day
program at Lackawanna Trail
after he retired by contacting
people he knew through
sports and work.
According to Tate, his
father offered amazing
support to him and his broth-
er and sister.
Our family was very over-
whelmed, Tate said of the
honor. We didnt expect it,
but are very happy for him.

Tate King, of Scranton, discusses
his father, for whom the
basketball tournament is named
The Lackawanna League
has undergone significant
change, but Abington
Heights and Scranton Prep
are again expected to battle
at the top of the highest divi-
sion in girls high school
basketball.
Abington Heights, which
went on to win the District 2
Class AAAA championship,
beat Scranton Prep in play-
offs at the end of each half
of the Lackawanna League
Division 1 season a year ago.
The league has realigned
from three to four divisions
with an emphasis on local
scheduling to reduce travel.
Abington Heights and
Scranton Prep remain in
Division 1, where the Clas-
sics could be regarded as a
slight favorite over the de-
fending champion Lady
Comets in the title race.
Lakeland is in Division 3,
with a whole new group of
opponents, after finishing
second in the division a year
ago. The remainder of the
teams from the old Division
3, including Lackawanna
Trail, now make up Division
4.
The changes extend be-
yond the league level.
District 2 is returning to
an open tournament format,
which will assure all teams
of a postseason shot after
two years in which Class
AAA and AA teams had to
qualify.
On the state level, the
play-in games have been
removed, ending the chance
for District 2 runners up in
Class AAAA and A to ad-
vance into the state tourna-
ment.
Scranton Preps season
ended with a District 2 Class
AAA semifinal loss last
season, but this season the
Class AAA and AA brackets
from the district will both
advance three teams into the
state tournament.
A look at the local teams:
ABINGTON HEIGHTS
The Lady Comets should
be strong up front with the
return of senior forward
Melanie Coles, 5-foot-11
junior center Breanna Toro
and senior guard/forward
Kat Rosencrance, who all
started on the team that went
23-5.
Chloe Shook, another 5-
foot 11-inch junior center
who played often off the
bench, should have an in-
creasing role in adding to
what is already a strong re-
bounding team.
Caitie Nealon, a junior
guard, is ready to move into
the starting lineup after be-
ing the top sub much of last
season.
Juniors Blair Cacciamani
and Maura Nealon, Caities
twin sister, are other experi-
enced guards.
I feel like were going to
be strong on the inside, but
we have to get the ball up
the floor first, Abington
Heights coach Vince Buccia-
relli said.
Freshman Johanna Show
appeared to be in line for a
prominent role before suf-
fering a torn anterior cruci-
ate ligament in her knee
during the summer. Show is
not expected to be available
until at least January, leaving
another freshman, Emma
Henzes, as the likely star-
tingpoint guard.
Junior guard Mikaela
Brutico, sophomore for-
wards Elizabeth Bamford
and Michaelina Holmes and
sophomore guard Michelle
Pacyna provide depth.
SCRANTON PREP
The Classics return four
starters and get Danielle
Dalessandro back.

Lakeland
The Chiefs return starting
guards Eric Grabowski and
Kyle Kiehart, both seniors,
along with senior forward Tyler
Brady froma teamthat finished
with a18-10 overall record (13-1
in league play). Lakeland must
replace three key members of
last years teamin guards J.J.
Rojenches and Alex Filarsky,
and center Mike Striefsky. Head
coach Dave Rosenkrans expects
senior forward/center Colby
Clauss-Walton, sophomore
forward Patrick Clauss-Walton,
and guard Nathan Morgan to be
in the running for the other
starting positions.
The Chiefs move to Division
2 this season, after playing in
Division 3 last year.
I expect the league to be
very tough, especially with
Holy Cross returning a lot of
starters, Rosenkrans said.
The Chiefs won a district
playoff game last season for the
first time since1994, defeating
Hanover Area in the first-round,
they then lost to Meyers in the
second round, and Riverside in a
game for the last state playoff
spot.
Were trying to build off the
success we had last year, and
hopefully make a run in the
district playoffs, Rosenkrans
said. Imhopeful that the run
we had last year will give us a
little bit of confidence.
The Chiefs will open their
season at home against Valley
ViewDec. 7 at 7 p.m.
Scranton Prep
The Cavaliers return a large
group of players that sawsignif-
icant playing time last season
including senior guards Mac
Temples and Matt Knowles,
junior forward James Fives, and

expects junior forward Kevin
Bannon, who also started at
times last season, along with
senior guard Jerry Walsh, junior
forward John OBoyle, junior
center/forward Zach Brandt,
junior guard Cory Kopicki, and
sophomore guard Timmy Rose
to factor into the rotation.
Scranton Prep finished last

AAAtitle game. They advanced
to the PIAAstate playoffs and
were defeated by an undefeated
Danville teamin the first-round.

Walsh, forward/center Michael
McDonald, and forward JJ Fives
fromlast years team.
Ferguson expects Scranton
and Abington Heights to pro-
vide the toughest competition in
the division this season.
Scranton is the defending
champion, so someone has to
beat themand Abington

For example, in the Clarks
Summit mailing address there
are four or five Maple address-

mailing address can be located

Clarks Summit, Newton
WAVERLY - The Nov. 26
Waverly Township meeting
marked the close of a year
with no change to the postal
addressing status.
The township sought first in
2009 to propose a change the
addressing system which
would allow the last line of
each mailing address to reflect
the name of the municipality-
Waverly Township. Through-
out 2010, the township sent a
letter to all residents request-
ing them to start using Wa-
verly Township instead of
Clarks Summit or Dalton as
the last address line.
The reason for the change,
according to supervisors, is not
only for emergency personnel
to find residences easier but
also for tax purposes, to elim-
inate duplicate addresses and
to comply with the Homeland
Security Initiative.
We are requesting a desig-
nation of Waverly Township
for all locations within our
township to provide the Lacka-
wanna County Communi-
cations Center with the proper
municipality and location
when receiving a request for
emergency service, White
said in May.
Township, South Abington
Township, Glenburn Township
or Scott Township.
This is a nightmare and one
of the reasons the Department
of Homeland Security wanted
the municipality as the last line
in the address, he added.
Township manager Bill
White spoke with a Postmaster
who claims to have gone as far
as he could with it but without
success.
North Abington, Scott,
Glenburn and other surround-
ing municipalities have
changed addresses with no
difficulties. Since 2011 the
Supervisors have approached
area politicians and the media
to solve the problem; Super-
visor Thomas Durbin re-
marked, (Its) something that
just doesnt make sense.
In other business, discs for
Frisbee golf at the township
will be engraved with a logo of
a leaping buck. There is no
sale date yet.
The 2013 budget has been
advertised and will be ap-
proved at the Dec. 10 meeting.
Waverly Township addressing issue remains unresolved despite efforts
