Im due for a colonoscopy,
which makes me think of won-
ton soup and presidential poli-
tics.
Give me a minute and Ill try
to explain.
A little more than eight years
ago my doctor informed me it
was time. I knew what he was
talking about before he said the
word.
The thing with colon cancer,
he explained, is that if you
discover the signs early, its no
big deal, if you dont, its a
death sentence.
That was enough for me.
But just the thought of it
made me cringe.
Im not even all that comfort-
able with my dental hygienist
sticking her fingers in my
mouth.
Anyone whos gone through
this procedure, however, will
tell you its nothing to be con-
cerned about.
And I agree.
Thats mainly because you
dont remember it.
The drug that accomplishes
this lets you know why people
become addicts.
Since you must fast before
the procedure, they serve you
breakfast right after it. My wife
said she never saw a happier
look on my face than when I
dove into that banana, to which
I responded, Banana?
Thats how good this drug is.
I had no recollection of eat-
ing a banana, let alone of a
doctor snooping around inside
of me.
Apparently while eating the
banana I kept insisting they had
not yet done the procedure.
I repeat, good drug.
So, I have no apprehension
about another colonoscopy.
The fasting is another story.
I hear these days they have
you fast for 24 hours. Believe it
or not, thats a relief.
I had to fast for two full days
last time, 48 hours of nothing
but clear fluids and, oh yes, a
couple of bottles of citrate of
magnesium, which does what
you think it does.
When the medical people say
they want you clean they
mean it.
Thats where the wonton soup
comes in.
A colleague at the college
and a close friend for some 25
years had said weeks earlier
that he wanted to take me out to
lunch as soon as the spring
semester ended.
He was about 19 or 20 when
we first met, he as a college
intern at this newspaper, and I
as managing editor. I guess Im
close to 15 years older than he
and through the years I appar-
ently had stabbed the check
every time we got together over
food or drinks.
I hadnt noticed but he had.
And he insisted it was time to
turn the tables.
Nice gesture.
The problem was working
out a time.
Our schedules were so
packed it seemed nearly impos-
sible to get together.
Thats why when we finally
found a suitable date, one after-
noon right after exam week, I
insisted we keep it even
though it turned out to be on
one of the aforementioned two
days.
But you wont be able to eat
anything, he stressed with
genuine concern.
Ill find something, I coun-
tered. Besides, if we dont do
this now, God knows when we
will. And its not about eating
food as much as it is about
having a relaxing conversation.
We went to a Chinese buffet,
his favorite, and while he filled
his plate the first of several
times, I might add I scouted
around for an item I could han-
dle.
I eyed up the Jello squares
for a good 30 seconds before
rejecting them on their redness
and finally settled on a cup of
wonton soup with, of
course, no wontons.
Oh, and I did drink some hot
tea.
At the register, my friend
paid the flat rate for the buffet
he consumed and I told the
young lady all I had was won-
ton soup with no wontons.
I spared her the details.
Puzzled, she went in search
of the manager and came back
and told my friend the charge
for me would be 19 cents.
Its been eight years and I
will not let him live down the
fact that the one time lunch was
on him, it cost him all of 19
cents.
It was a presidential election
year and the primaries had just
ended. Then, as now, there was
much talk from every candidate
about all the marvelous things
they were going to do for the
middle class.
All I kept thinking, though,
was that in my experience, any
time a politician talked about
helping the middle class, the
result turned out to be a lot like
a 19-cent bowl of wonton soup
with no wontons.
Or a colonoscopy.

To Care and Concern Food
Pantry director Peggy Burke,
what happens at the pantry is
akin to the Biblical story of the
loaves and fishes. Whenever it
gets low, she said. Food ap-
pears from somewhere.
Not that what happens there is
miraculous, but it is amazing.
The pantry opened four years
ago this month in the old Seton
Catholic High School and, since
then, has distributed 35,000 bags
of food to low-income families
in the 15 towns throughout the
Pittston and Wyoming areas.
When the pantry first opened,
food baskets were distributed to
25 families a week. Today, they
are distributed to 80 families a
week on a rotating basis.
The pantry has not only grown
in quantity, but also in quality.
Four years ago, the pantry dis-
tributed non-perishables only,
such as canned goods and boxes
of cereal and pasta.
Now the pantry also distrib-
utes milk, donated by Blue Rib-
bon FarmDairy; meat and bread,
donated by Wal-Mart; and fresh
fruits and vegetables donated by
an anonymous local business-
man.
The pantry also gets food from
the Weinberg Regional Food
Bank in Wilkes-Barre and Feed-
ing America of which Wal-Mart
is a member. We get an enor-
mous amount from Wal-Mart,
Burke said.
Then there is the food that ap-
pears from somewhere donated

Three families fighting three
very different battles.
And one church coming to
their aid.
St. Peters Lutheran Church on
Rock Street in Hughestown will
hold a spaghetti dinner to help
the Zimmerman, the Homschek
and the Grogan families.
The Zimmerman family, of
Moosic, lost its patriarch, Brian,
in a lightning storm at the Poco-
no Raceway in June.
The Homschek familys son,
Keith, of Hanover Township,
was hurt in a motorcycle crash
on his way to a benefit for a sick
relative.
The fa-
ther of the
Grogan
family, of
Duryea, is
battling
brain can-
cer.
The all-
you-can-eat
dinner spa-
ghetti din-
ner is set for
4 to 8 p.m.
onSaturday,
Nov. 3 (with
takeouts
from 4 to 6
p.m.) in the
basement of the church at 100
Rock St., Hughestown. Cost of
the dinner is $8 for adults and $6
for children 10 years of age and
under. For advance tickets, call
654-1008 and leave a message or
call Pam at 313-2829. Included
in the dinner are spaghetti, salad,
dessert and beverage. There will
also be a silent raffle for prize
baskets.
Were trying to help families
that are in need of our help, said
Pam Hanczyc, of Hughestown,
the Church Council Secretary.
This is the first time the church is
doing a fundraiser like this, but
Hanczyc says it wont be the last.
Were hoping to continue
this, to make it an annual event,
she said, indicating hopes of sell-
ing 300 dinners.

Proud to be a member of the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce
by private citizens, VFWs and
other clubs, firemen, dance
groups and sports teams.
The pantry has also gone dig-
ital with a donated computer and
has gotten wheels with a donated
van.
The 20-plus volunteers range
from the food handlers, numer-
ous; to the box cutter, Bob Clar-
ke; to the Information Technolo-
gy guy, Carl Boos.
The pantry is sponsored by the
Care and Concern Ministries of
the ParishCommunityof St. John
the Evangelist, which also runs
adult and pediatric health clinics
and a Childrens Clothes Closet.
Msgr. John J. Bendik, pastor of
the Parish Community, is im-
pressed by the ministries pro-
jects which began with the health
clinic the year before the food
pantry. Phenomenal, he said.
People were coming to the
health clinic asking for food and
Peggy asked if we could open a
food pantry. These guys work so
hard. People in the Greater Pitt-
ston community are willing to
serve. And its great that its here
in Seton Catholic. Otherwise,
this building wouldnt be used or
would have to be rented out and
that wouldnt be right. Since the
Civil War, this school taught stu-
dents to serve the community
and the Gospel and that contin-
ues.
In addition to food distribution
every Wednesday, the food pan-
try runs two special programs, a
giveaway of 400 Christmas din-
ners of turkey with all the trim-
mings and an adult winter coat
giveaway. Right now, the pantry
is accepting gently-used adult
winter coats.
Burke said the pantry has had
the same core group of 24 volun-
teers for all four years of its exist-
ence and could use a few more
for the heavy lifting. Were al-
ways in need of young men on
Wednesday mornings from10 to
11:15 to carry food bags and bas-
kets out to cars.
Jane Moss, a St. Johns parish-
ioner, was inspired to volunteer
by her mother, Jane Roche, one
of the original 24. Im here to
help out somebody less fortu-
nate, Moss said. We all have a
need sometime.

Zimmerman, 41, was the vic-
timof an act of nature. Nine oth-
ers were injured in the lightning
strike just after a heavy thunder-
storm system caused officials to
call the Pennsylvania 400 early.
Zimmerman was near his car
in a parking lot after the race had
ended when lightning struck the
car, said Monroe County Coro-
ner Robert M. Allen.
Bystanders performed CPR
on himafter he went into cardiac
arrest until paramedics arrived,
Allen said. Paramedics took
Zimmerman to the tracks med-
ical facility where efforts to re-
vive him failed. The strike oc-
curred at about 5:01 p.m., the
track confirmed.
Zimmerman left behind his
wife, Marion, sons, Cole Patrick
and Chase Randolph, and a
daughter, Lana Christine.
His wife and mother-in-law
worked for me when I had Bright
Smiles Day Care Center, Hanc-
zyc said. Its so tragic what hap-
pened.
The track has established a
fund for Zimmermans three
children. Were going to con-
tribute to that, Hanczyc said.
Jill Grogan was seven months
pregnant in 2010 when she found
out her husband, 45-year-old Ar-
thur, had a brain tumor, specifi-
cally a GBM- Glioblastoma
Multiforme IV.
After three surgeries andtravel
to Philadelphia and elsewhere
for treatments, the bills have
been piling up. The expenses
are mounting, Jill said.
When he was diagnosedwith a
brain tumor in 2010, he under-
went surgery to remove it. Hes
been battling with recurrence
and a new tumor ever since, one
near his right temporal lobe and
one in his right frontal lobe.
He lost the use of his left side
and nowwalks with a cane and a
leg brace.
Their church, Jill said, helped
keep the family strong. The Gro-
gans have two children, a daugh-
ter Riley, 13, and a son, Arthur,
18 months.
Theyre wonderful people at
the church, Jill said. As bad as
things are right now, were
blessed with good friends and
family. Everyones has been so
wonderful.
Homschek Jr., 21, was riding
his motorcycle on Suscon Road
on Aug. 11, 2012 in a benefit ride
for his aunt, whohas lungcancer.
That ride changed his life for-
ever. He lost control of his bike
and crashed into a pickup truck,
causing him to lose his right leg
below the knee and suffering
breaks in his other leg and both
arms.
Were just glad he survived,
said his mother, Jessie.
The medical bills and travel
expenses are costly and Jessie
was unable to work while caring
for her son. The road to recovery
is arduous. Homschek had nu-
merous surgeries and fed him-
self for the first time just last
week. Hes coming along, Jes-
sie said. His spirit is great.
Thats so important.

I fear that students and par-
ents will now, more than ever try
toimplicate us intheir misplaced
blame for their own inadequa-
cies as parents.
Pittston Area School District
Superintendent Dr. Michael
Garzella issued a news release
last week saying the boards
number one priority is to pro-
vide a superior education while
protecting the safety, health and
welfare of the student body, and
noted the union letter does not
reflect the admin-
istration or School
Boards views or
directives.
Any and all al-
leged incidents of
bullying; student-
to-student, teach-
er-to-student or
student-to-teacher
will be investigat-
ed and responded
to appropriately.
In other busi-
ness:
Pittston resident
Michelle Kovach,
a parent of a for-
mer Pittston stu-
dent, toldthe board
an emotional story
of how her daughter was bullied
so badly at Pittston Area, she had
to pull her out and enroll her in a
cyber school, and of a school ad-
ministration that looked the oth-
er way.
She said her daughter, Kailee,
was student at Pittston Area for
eight years.
There was only one of those
eight years that she was NOT
bullied in some way by either a
teacher or a student, Mrs. Ko-
vach told the board.
When she brought up the issue
to school officials, she was told,
girls will be girls, this is when
the cattiness begins or give it
time and the situation will calm
down.
But the situation didnt calm
down, it escalated.
The Pittston Area School
Board on Tuesday night hired an
outside lawyer to probe allega-
tions of a district teacher belit-
tling a student.
The unnamed teacher was for-
mally reprimanded according to
union contract after telling a stu-
dent, Its day13andI cant stand
you already.
The exchange was recordedon
a students cell
phone.
The board on
Tuesday unani-
mously hired
Attorney Mark
C. Walsh at
$150 an hour as
independent
counsel to in-
vestigation
whether there is
sufficient evi-
dence to pro-
ceed with dis-
missal proceed-
ings.
If applicable,
Walsh would
present charges
and prosecute
them in front of the board at a
hearing.
The board would then decide
the fate of the teacher.
District Solicitor Atty. Joseph
Saporitio said the board would
act as adjudicator and urged
board members not to investi-
gate the charges on their own.
A letter from the teachers
union to teachers that spoke of
parent inadequacies stirred a
separate controversy.
Union Vice President Rocco
DAngelo sent a letter to union
members saying, It is of utmost
importance to conduct ourselves
in a professional manner, and
warningsince we all get painted
with the same brush by the pub-
lic lets try giving them nothing
negative to paint with.
In seventh grade, my daugh-
ter was physically attacked by
another student, Kovach said.
She was clotheselined into a
metal door.
Kailee sustained a head, back
and neck injury.
Mrs. Kovachmet witha school
official, but the official mishan-
dled it, she said.
He lied and tried to cover up
the incident, she said.
The excuse Kovach received
from the school was the other
girl was playing red rover.
Unfortunately for my daugh-
ter, she had no idea she was play-
ing that game, Kovach said.
Ateacher, Kovach said, was in
the roombut turned her back as
to what was happening.
Several students volunteered
torelaywhat theysaw, but school
officials declined to listen, Ko-

how her daugh-
ter was bullied
so bad at Pitt-
ston Area, she
had to pull her
out an enroll
her in a cyber
school.
By JOE HEALEY
jhealey@psdispatch.com
My question to the
board is when will the
polices on bullying be
fully enforced? she
asked. How many
more children have to
be assaulted, ha-
rassed and attacked
before someone in a
position of authority
says enough?

The Salvation Army Food
PantryinWest Pittston, a reliable
source of meals for more than 50
families in any given month, is in
desperate need of food dona-
tions, said the groups core offi-
cer Major She-
ryl Hershey.
After the
West Pittston
Headquarters
recovered from
the flooding of
2011, officials
have been busy
restocking
families
shelves.
Now the Ar-
mys own
shelves need
restocking.
Last week
we came to the
point where we
only had six
cans of food in
our food pan-
try, Hershey
said.
She called the Harry & Jea-
nette Weinberg Food Bank, part
of the Commission on Economic
Opportunity, and received an or-
der to help their patrons.
But we have to restock our
shelves, Hershey said.
Local mail carriers conducted
a can drive around Mothers Day
and that food usually lasts until
Christmas, when the Salvation
Army generally gets an influx of
donations.
But it ran out of food early this
year.
With the amount of families
weve been helping, we find our-
selves running short all the
time, Hershey added.
Hershey blames several fac-
tors on the increase of patrons,
including the sour economic
times, lack of jobs and cutting of
traditional food stamps.
An eligible family can receive
a box of food, with canned good,
dry food, some meats, including
ground beef, ham and baloney,
once every 30
days. But boxes
of food general-
ly only last two
weeks. Because
the Salvation
Army is consid-
ered an emer-
gency food
bank, it cant
supply a full
months worth
of food.
Items needed
include Ham-
burger Helper,
boxes of pasta,
macaroni and
cheese, canned
tuna, peanut
butter and jelly.
Canned goods
such as vegetables, spaghetti
sauces and things for children
like canned mini ravioli or Spa-
ghetti-os are always in high de-
mand. Breakfast cereal is always
needed.
We never have enoughpeanut
butter and jelly, Hershey said.
We normally always try to give
every family a box of cereal. Its
one of the biggest things we
havent had in the past 4
months, she added
Most rely on state assistance,
food stamps, to make up the dif-
ference, Hershey said of people
who frequent the Armys food
bank.
The food bank, at 214 Luzerne
in West Pittston, opens three
days a week, Monday, Wednes-
day and Fridays.
To receive assistance, patrons
must provide proof of residency,
proof of income or lack of it,
proof of bills and expenses and,
if children are involved, identifi-
cation such as a Social Security
card or a birth certificate.
With Thanksgiving and
Christmas coming up, Hershey
is expecting to feed between 300
and 400 families.

The Salvation Army Food Pantry in West Pittston, a reliable source of meals for more than 50 fam-
ilies in any given month, is in desperate need of donations, said the group's core officer Major Sheryl
Hershey.
West Pittston pantry in
need of dry good donations
By JOE HEALEY
jhealey@psdispatch.com
To support the Salvation Army,
drop off the donation at the food
bank at 214 Luzerne Ave., West
Pittston. Or, if a church, communi-
ty group, school group or business
has a food drive, volunteers can
pick up the donations. Also, Her-
shey said, any cash donation
would go to the food pantry fund.

Question #1
Duryea Borough
officials arranged to
welcome an individ-
ual of historical im-
portance on his
scheduled Nov. 1, 1956
visit. Who was he?
1956 56 Years Ago
Michael Chiampi, president of the
Good Will Hose Company in West Pitt-
ston, received an American flag from
Minnie Mange Janke, of West Pittston.
The flag was presented to Janke at the
funeral of her husband John, an Army
veteran who served in France during
World War I.
Mrs. Jankes nephew, James Skipper,
was a member of the hose company.
A few interesting tidbits appeared in
the 1957 Ramblin Round Our Town
Column in the Sunday Dispatch as fol-
lows:
Pittston public school children do
pretty well with milk. During the short
term of September, the school milk bill
totaled $283.
Plans are underway to publish a
new Greater Pittston Directory by the
R.L. Polk Co.
The last regional directory was pub-
lished in 1948. If it goes through, the
new directory will be issued in March
1957.
Just in case you think the present
drilling for gas or oil in Ransom is a
first of its kind, we noted in a story from
the Pittston Comet, one of Pittstons first
newspapers, a story and advertisement
from Poule and Co.
It advertised expert drillers for coal
and oil in Greater Pittston.
The story appeared in 1874.
Pittston City officials were elated
that a project to install new and paint
existing street signs had been complet-
ed.
In a call to The Sunday Dispatch, an
upper Pittston resident reported one
sign had been missed.
The resident insisted that the sign be
preserved though as it had a rather in-
teresting story attached.
Many years before, John Ormsby
and other residents in that section donat-
ed land along their properties to the city
in order to provide residents with a pub-
lic passageway to North Main Street.
When city officials placed a sign on the
alley, it read Barnum Alley.
Taking offense, a young Maude
Ormsby, knowing the contribution her
father had made, climbed the pole, re-
moved the Barnum Alley sign and re-
placed it with one on which she had
written Ormsby Alley.
1966 46 Years Ago
Billed as the game of the week in
Pennsylvania and with a conference
title on the line, the contest between
coach Bob Barbieris Pittston Area
Patriots and Peckvilles Blakely Bears
drew a crowd of an estimated 5,000
fans. Blakely, going for their 47th con-
secutive Lackawanna Conference title,
struggled throughout the game as the
Patriot players, some of which included
Stan Klocko, Ed Brennan and Eddie
Booth, maneuvered a 14-0 lead at the
end of the first quarter. The Bears, how-
ever, were determined and battled back,
winning the game with a third-quarter
field goal. The crowd was believed to be
the largest to witness a game at Albert
West Park since it had re-opened for
scholastic play. It was estimated that the
Patriots had played before at least
25,000 fans in just four outings.
Jenkins Township Hose Company
battled with township supervisors over a
strip of land connected to the hose com-
pany property. Township officials
claimed the strip of land, once listed as a
street in 1881 on coal company maps,
was still a street and planned to use it as
an access to an existing housing devel-
opment. The hose company claimed the
land was part of their purchase agree-
ment and was slated to be used for ex-
pansion of their facility.
Mrs. Al Sellock, Mrs. Jerome Hol-
land, Mrs. Donald Kane, Mrs. Wil-
bert Lawler and Mrs. Edward Holler-
an, members of the United Mothers of
America, were planning a unique Fash-
ion Cabaret by Candlelight event. An-
thony Angeli was scheduled to provide
cordovox melodies.
Mrs. Patrick Cawley, Mrs. Angelo
Montante, Mrs. Jerry Zezza, Mrs.
Eugene Maria, Marie Galasso, Marie
Lombardo, Mrs. Merle Bainbridge,
Mrs. George Menn, Mrs. Donald
Moss, Mrs. Joseph Sciandra, Mrs.
Donald White, Mrs. John Hoover,
Mrs. Ross Mantione and Mrs. Jerome
Kardos, members of the Education
Department of West Pittston Womens
Club, observed National Book Week.
The women sponsored a storytelling
hour at West Pittston Library for chil-
dren in kindergarten through third grade.
1976 36 Years Ago
In 1941, as a young man, Bill
McCabe, of Pittston, was in one of the
first convoys to leave the U.S. for Ha-
waii after the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor. When he arrived, he recalled,
The ships were still burning. An ac-
complished cook, Bill served as a Mess
Sergeant during his five years in the
Army, sometimes feeding as high as
3,000 service members in various loca-
tions around the world.
Upon his return to the States, he
worked as a chef at the Mayfair Supper
Club in Pittston. In 1976, Bill, who also
worked as chef at Seton Catholic High
School, was honored by the school dur-
ing National School Lunch Week. Serv-
ing about 350 lunches a day, Bill
claimed the students favorites were
spaghetti, meatloaf, wimpies and bar-
beque chicken, adding that, at 50 cents a
meal, the lunches were a real bargain.
Bill gave credit to the success of the
lunch program to his two assistants,
Mary Ann VanLuvender and Carol
Remsky.
Noceras Jewelers in Exeter adver-
tised a half carat diamond ring for $299,
Radio City on Broad Street in Pittston
offered a 19 100% solid state color
television for $388. The Staircase
Lounge featured The Poets plus Fran-
kie and the Corvettes, Hot Pepper
and Disco Nite, Biscottis in West Pitt-
ston offered spaghetti with meatballs for
$1.50. A tray of pizza cost $2.85 at
Charlies Pizza and Hoagie Shop,
Klockos Happy Valley had Jonathan
singing your favorite tunes and a bone-
less stuffed chicken breast dinner could
be enjoyed at the Starlight Lounge in
Falls for $3.75.
Question #2
In 1976, what new Exeter League
contained the following teams: Bernies
Pizza, D. Construction, Jerry Clapps
Auto Sales, Kessler 5, Lombardos
Bakery, Brogans Heroes, Carmens
Flowers and Casetoris Barbers?
1986 26 Years Ago
Members of the Circle K. Club, Stu-
dent Government, Vets Club of Penn
State University, Wyoming Area Band,
Lake-Lehman Key Club and West Pitt-
ston Boy Scouts took over the American
Theatre Building. Their aim was to
terrify anyone who entered. The haunted
theatre was expected to attract hundreds
of brave souls during the week of Hallo-
ween.
1996 16 Years Ago
Christina Lyn Bilder of West Pitt-
ston won the title of Miss Hemisphere.
The international competition title
awarded on modeling, beauty and talent
was presented to Miss Bilder at Mount
Airy Lodge.
Ariane Palmasani, of Pittston, was
awarded the Early Bach Medal during
the National Guild of Piano Auditions.
In previous auditions, Ariane was
awarded the Founders Medal. Dr. Irl
Allison founded auditions sponsor, The
Piano Guild, in 1929 and according to
their website, the Guild has grown to
more than 850 audition centers where
thousands of students enroll annually.
The Sunday Dispatch Inquiring Pho-
tographer asked, Which team will win
the World Series?
Father Leo McKernan, of Avoca,
answered, The Yankees; they have been
out of series a long time.
Jim Deice, of Pittston, added, The
Yankees in six; tradition is in their fa-
vor.
Joe Falzone, of Pittston, stated, The
Yankees; with Bernie Williams, Andy
Pettitte, they have some of the best play-
ers around.
The 1996 World Series matched the
defending champion Atlanta Braves
against the New York Yankees. The
Yankees won in six games to capture
their first championship since 1978 and
their 23rd overall. They became the third
team to win a World Series after drop-
ping Games 1 and 2 at home and be-
came the first team since the 1981 Los
Angeles Dodgers to win four straight
games after dropping the first two.
Answer #1
Frank Kimowski, chairman of the
local Republican Party. made arrange-
ments to assemble a caravan to meet
the motorcade that would accompany
Vice President Richard M. Nixon as it
traveled through the borough of Duryea
on Nov. 1, 1956.
Nixon served as the 36th vice presi-
dent of the United States under Dwight
D. Eisenhower from1953 to 1961. Eisen-
hower suffered a mild stroke in Novem-
ber 1957 and Nixon gave a press confer-
ence, assuring the nation that the Cabi-
net was functioning well as a team.
Nixon won his bid for office of the pres-
ident in 1968.
Answer #2
The Carefree Lounge Shuffleboard
League started its season in October
1976 with 34 players divided among
eight teams. Although the game has
transformed over its extensive history,
the country of origin is a mystery.
Night time is really the best time to
work. All the ideas are there to be yours
because everyone else is asleep.

The Pittston Post office will
officially be renamed in honor of
fallen Pennsylvania State Police
Trooper Joshua D. Miller on Oct.
24.
A ceremony is set for 10 a.m.
and will include family
members, friends, and
colleagues of Miller, ac-
cordingtoa news release
from the office of U.S.
Rep. Lou Barletta. Bar-
letta sponsored a bill to
officially dedicate the
postal facility at 11Dock
Street as the Trooper
Joshua D. Miller Post Office
Building.
The public is invited.
Miller, a 1992 Pittston Area
High School graduate, was shot
and killed on June 7, 2009 along
a stretch of Route 611near Toby-
hanna.
He was shot by Daniel Auten-
rieth, who kidnapped his own 9-
year-old son during a custody
exchange at the boys home in
Nazareth, Pa., andledpolice ona
40-mile high-speed pursuit to
Coolbaugh Township. After the
chase ended, Miller and Trooper
Robert Lombardo, of Pittston,
approached Autenrieths vehi-
cle. Autenrieth refused to exit
the vehicle and, after the two
troopers used batons to break his
vehicle windows, opened fire on
them, striking Miller in the leg
and neck and Lombardo in the
shoulder. The troopers returned
fire, striking Autenrieth eight
times. He was pronounced dead
at the scene.
Lombardo recovered from his
wounds.
Miller, the Pittston Township
resident and Pittston city native,
was 34 and left behind wife An-
gela and three daughters Justine,
Joslyn and Breana.
Barletta introduced a
bill to rename the post
office last July. It was
cosponsored by the en-
tire Pennsylvania dele-
gation to the House and
it passedthat chamber in
November. The Senate
approved the bill by
unanimous consent. The bill was
signed into law by President
Obama on June 5.
The stretch of the roadway
where Miller was shot already
bears his name, thanks to legisla-
tion approved by the state Gener-
al Assembly. It was designated
the Trooper Joshua D. Miller
Memorial Highway and then-
Gov. Ed Rendell awarded him a
posthumous Medal of Honor.
Miller has also been honored
with golf tournaments, softball
tournaments and motorcycle
runs in his name to benefit his
widow and daughters.
Also in attendance will be lo-
cal and state officials, and repre-
sentatives of the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice.

At first glance, the stories appearing to-
day on page 3 and page 9 will seemdrasti-
cally different.
One, on page 3, about the Care and
Concern Food Pantry located in the for-
mer Seton Catholic school in Pittston, is
about abundance and generosity. Since
openingfour years ago, the pantryhas dis-
tributed 35,000 bags of food to low-in-
come families in the 15 towns throughout
the Pittston and Wyoming areas.
Its also a story of success, of sorts, if
more people in need can be called suc-
cess. When the pantry first opened, food
baskets were distributed to 25 families a
week. Today, they are distributed to 80
families a week on a rotating basis.
The story on page 9 may seeman oppo-
site one.
Its about the food pantry at the Salva-
tion Army Food Pantry in West Pittston,
where Major Sheryl Hershey is sad to re-
port the cupboards are nearly bare.
Hershey says the Salvation Army feeds
more than 50 families in any given month.
But need has been running ahead of dona-
tions.
Last week we came to the point where
we only had six cans of food in our food
pantry, Hershey said.
She pointedout that needis sogreat that
the local mail carriers canned food drive,
staged around Mothers Day and provid-
ing food that usually lasts until Christmas,
already has run out this year.
With the amount of families weve
been helping, we find ourselves running
short all the time, Hershey said.
Althoughthe SalvationArmyis desper-
ate for donations, their story too is about
abundance and generosity. It is what has
sustained them through the years. And
Major Hershey is confident she will see
an outpouring of both.
The stories are also the same in this: the
need of struggling families is greater than
ever.
Major Hershey points out that an eligi-
ble family can receive a box of food, with
canned goods, dry food, some meats, in-
cluding ground beef, ham and baloney,
once every 30 days. But boxes of food
generally only last two weeks. Because
the Salvation Army is considered an
emergency food bank, it cant supply a
full months worth of food.
We encourage everyone to do what they
can to help these two groups in their ef-
forts to ensure than no one living around
here goes hungry.
Need
indeed
Isolationist! Now thats a peaceful term and more and more
Imdrawn to it. In my humble opinion, the world has changed to
the point where the United States needs to change or greatly ad-
just our role in the world. We can no longer afford to be the
worlds cop/peace keeper, we can no longer afford the position.
In recent yeas, I have given much thought to the possibility of
the United States becoming an Isolationist nation. We dont need
the world and we cant afford the role we have taken on. The
benefits of being an isolationist nation are huge and I just dont
see the downside.
I think we should begin this process by bringing home every
single member of the military. That means leaving Germany, Ja-
pan, Korea and every other country and absolutely the Middle
East. The role of our militarywouldthenbe tostandguardonour
borders allowing anyone to leave who wishes to but not allowing
a single soul into the country other than through proper and legal
ways. This would end the drug problem as well as the undocu-
mented folks who came here without legal permission.
This guard duty would allow us to maintain our Army and
Marines and of course this would give themample time for train-
ing. The Coast Guard would continue its life saving duties but
would be a strong part of our border patrol keeping our water
borders secure.
Our Navy and Air Force would be used to keep us safe from
any outside danger. We need to enlarge our naval fleet and con-
centrate on nuclear operating aircraft carriers and submarines.
We have recently christened the first of our new nuclear sub-
marines which are 400 ft long and carry the most technological
savvy crew in our nations history. With a fleet such as this, we
would be in a position to strike any nation that would dare try to
harm us. The governments of other countries would be held re-
sponsible if harboring groups that are intent on harming us and
we would strike back any time we are attacked.
Can you imagine the financial impact if the total of our mil-
itary payroll was spent within our borders? Talk about an eco-
nomic explosion and the good type of economic explosion.
Nothing would be imported fromany country that causes a trade
deficit. We would no longer pay farmers to not grow our food
and we would then have food to export creating jobs and reve-
nues. Foreign aid would be in the form of food and clothing.
These poor nations cannot eat or wear the billions of dollars we
give them. Often times that foreign aid is used against us and we
know how often those same nation aid takers vote against us in
the UN. We have every natural resource we need and our steel
mills would start up again and we would once again become an
industrial nation. Education would be mandatory in that no child
will leave school without knowing the three "Rs" as we used to
refer to them.
Yes this is simplistic but life doesnt have to be complicated. I
recall an old saying, "KISS" meaning Keep It Simple Stupid and
I think we have long forgotten that simple cliche. If we did be-
come a true Isolationists nation, maybe the worldwouldbe better
off. I know we certainly would be. No wars unless we are at-
tacked in some form, no cheap imports to put us out of business
and a self reliance that would cause an surge of national pride
and a real rush of employment due to jobs returning to our coun-
try. This might upset the Romneys of our world because there
would also be a curtailment of off shore investments. You live
here, you invest here. The now meaningless term of "Job Cre-
ators" will become a reality and the money saved by bringing
our military home would be used to keep us the strongest nation
in the world.

If legislators were serious about reducing
crime, drug abuse, school drop outs, welfare rolls
and many other social ills there is one thing they
could do right now that would work.
It would take a generation, but it would work.
And its not just my opinion that it would work.
Its a fact backed up by studies and stastistics.
The one thing? Stop subsidizing out-of-wed-
lock children.
It is a fact, again backed up by studies and
stats, that the best way to stay out of poverty is to
do these three things: finish high school (at
least), get married before having children and
stay married if you have children.
Married families are vastly more affluent than
single-parent families and much less likely to fall
into poverty.
Good bad ads
Sometimes when candidates say bad things
about each other in TV ads the bad things are
really good.
Take for example Tom Smith versus Bob
Casey for U.S. Senate.
Smiths ad calls Casey a do nothing senator,
who hasnt passed any bills.
Good.
We have enough bills. Less in more. Govern-
ment doesnt have to be the answer for every
thing that comes up.
And Caseys ad said Tom Smith favors a tax
cut which would lower his own taxes by
$250,000.
So what?
Does Casey really expect us to believe that
Washington would make better use of that money
than Smith would?
Smith didnt get rich squandering money like
the government does.
Smiths $250,000 wouldnt cover the cost of
salaries and benefits for two of the 450,000 fed-
eral government workers who are paid over
$100,000. According to an investigation by USA
Today, in the last five years, the number of feder-
al employees making $150,000 or more per year
has grown 10 times.
Poker face
It looks like the state legislatures plan to put
mom and pop taverns and private clubs out of
business is working.
How else could raiding corner bars and VFWs
and confiscating poker machines be character-
ized?
If the state police wanted 400 gambling ma-
chines why did they run all over two counties
rounding them up from bars and clubs that are
barely making a living, when they could have
gotten them all in one easy raid at the Mohegan
Sun Casino?
Oh wait, I know. Because casino gambling is
all fun and games and nobody ever gets hurt and
so its legal, while video poker machines in
VFWs are evil and ruining lives so they had to be
stopped.
Do you think any of the legislators gave a sec-
ond thought about the corner taverns and small
social clubs when they voted to legalize gaming
at casinos?
Of course not. They just licked their chops at
all the money they were going to get to spend
and to hell with the little guy.
Wheres the fairness Democrats are always
crying about?
What did they think was going to happen,
when casinos can undercut food prices and allow
smoking?
Governor Corbett, who was not governor when
the gaming bill passed, did care.
He proposed a bill in 2009 that would have
allowed clubs to operate poker machines, but it
never came up for a vote, because casino oper-
ators went bananas.
And who could blame them? Casino operators
paid $50 million for licenses and are paying 55
percent of the revenue they generate (thats
Harrisburg talk for money people lost), no won-
der they dont want competition from VFWs.

Random notes on the news
Any walk in the woods this time of year will surely be a site for a
least one type of wild mushroom growing. Pennsylvanias climate is
perfect for these fungi to thrive.
However, be aware!
Mushrooms should be purchased from a reputable grower or gro-
cer instead of hunting them yourself, as there are many poisonous
mushrooms.
Incorrectly indentifying a mushroom can lead to serious health
problems or even death.
Pennsylvania leads the way with producing 501 million pounds
(2010) of mushrooms each year. Penn State is instrumental to the
mushroom industry in helping improve productivity.
For more information, visit http://extension.psu.edu/mushroom-
grower-info.
Today the Mushroom Council plays an important role in promot-
ing mushrooms.
Mushrooms are a great food to eat.
They are super powerhouses of minerals - selenium, riboflavin,
niacin, potassium and pantothenic acid.
Mushrooms are also fat free and low in calories.
If you are a novice mushroomcook, here is howto clean and store
mushrooms.
First, clean mushrooms only when you are ready to use them.
Remove any bits of debris (mushroom compost) on the surface,
rinse with cold running water or gently wipe the mushrooms with a
damp cloth, paper towel or soft brush.
To retain the color squeeze a small amount of lemon juice onto the
mushrooms.
Store mushrooms for up to a week in the refrigerator.
Keep mushrooms in the original packaging until ready to use.
Once opened, store mushrooms in a porous paper bag.
This will give the mushrooms a longer shelf life.
Here is an easy to make soup.
Add a spinach salad and a glass of skimmilk to round out the meal.
Fresh Mushroom Soup
11/2 pounds fresh mushrooms
8 scallions
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 quart fat-free, no added salt, chicken broth
1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
Chop mushrooms and scallions into bite-sized pieces.
Saut in chicken broth until tender.
Add thyme, pepper, and mustard.
Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add yogurt, stirring just to blend.

I ll Return Your Phone Calls
A surprising number of
people being represented by
an attorney have reported
their disappointment over the
fact that their lawyer doesnt
keep them informed of the
progress he or she is making
on their case.
I know how important a
clients case is to them, so
I make it a point to return
all phone calls promptly.
The stress of undergoing a
personal injury claim is bad
enough; you shouldnt have
to undergo the agony of
wondering when your lawyer
will get back to you.
Ive been representing
injured clients in Luzerne
County for over 25 years. Id
be happy to talk to you about
your case, and theres never
a fee until you win.

vach said.
They heard a loud boom.
They saw my daughter on the
ground with the attacker stand-
ing over her laughing. They said
the attacker bragged to her
friends.
Then she called out the school
boardandschool officials totake
their heads out of the sand.
My question to the board is
whenwill the polices onbullying
be fully enforced? she asked.
How many more children have
to be assaulted, harassed and at-
tacked before someone in a posi-
tion of authority says enough?
Enforcing your own code of
conduct is the onlythingthat will
begin to stop the nightmare.
Recent anti-bullying T-shirts
and posters do little, she said.
There is a problem and anti-
bullying T-shirts and posters will
not stop it, she said. Some of
these children endure bullying
every single day silently because
very few members of the staff
take it seriously.
She said she felt guilty after
two recent suicides at Pittston
Area. If she made more of a com-
motion after her daughters
struggle, she said she might have
in some way prevented future
bullying.
I amnowprepared to take ev-
ery step to ensure no child will
ever be bullied in this district
again to the point that suicide is
the only way out.
Garzella said bullying will not
be tolerated. I want to make it
perfectly clear.
Any child that comes forward
and is willing to testify that they
were bullied, we will deal with
it, he said. We will investigate.
Charges will be filed. Its not go-
ing to be tolerated at Pittston Ar-
ea under my watch.

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.
Connecticut has a new law requiring boat
owners to inspect their vessels for invasive
aquatic species.
***
The Supreme Court has struck down the
Stolen Valor Act of 2005, which sought
to ban unauthorized people from wearing
decorations or medals.
***
A controversial use of Illinois eavesdropping
law - prosecuting civilians for audio
recording police offcers conducting their
public duties in a public place - cannot be
enforced against the ACLU and its employees
for the foreseeable future. The preliminary
injunction was ordered by a federal appellate
court ruling that held such prosecutions
likely violated the First Amendment rights
of the public to record the work of public
offcials, including on-duty police offcers.
***
The United States Court of Appeals for the
Fourth Circuit, which is the federal appeals
court that has jurisdiction over federal
courts in Maryland and other Mid-Atlantic
states, has upheld the constitutionality of a
West Virginia law requiring all children to
be immunized for diptheria, polio, rubella,
tetanus, and whooping cough as a condition
to be admitted to public schools.

Fitness Coordinator of the Pitt-
ston YMCA, wanted to do some-
thing unique for Breast Cancer
Awareness Month.
I didnt want to raise money,
just make the women more
aware about breast cancer and
have fun while doing it, said
Butwin. I wanted to pack the
aerobics room, do some Piloxing
and educate at the same time.
About 50 women and one very
excited child crowded the YM-
CAto Pilox, some wearing signs
ontheir backs incelebrationand/
or in memory of those battling,
surviving or have lost the battle
to breast cancer.
Informationlinedthe YMCAs
lobby and aerobics room about
breast cancer, how to detect
breast cancer, treatments, rib-
bons and wrist bands for the
women to take home with them.
Fifty women are now more
educatedabout breast cancer and
thats all I could ask for, said
Butwin.
To continue awareness at the
Greater Pittston will have Paint
the YMCA Pink week. From
October 22-26, members and
non-members are encouraged to
wear pink when they come to
visit the YMCA. Non-members
will be able to use the facility for
free if they are wearing pink. In-
formation regarding breast can-
cer and awareness will be avail-
able throughout the YMCA.

Casey Bohan is a serial killer.
At Wyoming Area she killed
549. At Wilkes University only
nine killers in the nation have
killed more than Casey. In the
backyard of her parents home in
Harding theyve lost count.
Casey, 20, a 6-1 junior middle
hitter for the Wilkes University
womens volleyball team, is
ranked 10th in the country in
kills per set and fourth in points
per set.
Her sisters Mallory, a 5-6 ju-
nior, and Gabby, a 5-8 senior, are
right and left side hitters for the
Wyoming Area girls volleyball
team. We make upa whole front
row, Casey said.
The sisters grew up playing
family volleyball games in their
backyard with their parents Pa-
trick Bohan who played basket-
ball at Nanticoke and their moth-
er Judy and a large extended
family that includes their cousin
Nick Romanowski, the founder
of the Wyoming Area ice hockey
club, and cousins Lauren and
Megan Wysocki, who is a fresh-
man player at Wyoming Area.
We even got grandma to play,
Casey said.
When they were little the girls
had to sit and watch until they
were about eight before they
were allowed to play. Thats
how it all started, Mallory said.
Mallory said the backyard
games are competitive. It has to
be equal, Mallory said. If not,
theres a big fight about it.
To make the games equal,
Casey, who is a ringer in the
backyard, has to be on a teamop-
posite Mallory and Gabby.
Theyre vicious, the girls
mother Judysaidof the backyard
games. If youre picked last and
feel bad about it, well, who
cares?
When Casey graduated from
Wyoming Area in 2010 she left
as the volleyball programs all-
time kills leader with 549. Her
sisters got to see most of those
hits. Mallory was on the first-
year team and Gabby was a
freshman.
Asked if they look up to Casey
as a role model, they said they
did, though just a little reluctant-
ly. Yeah, I guess, Mallory said.
Shes good at volleyball and
school and that shows you can
balance it out. We should try to
do that, too, in high school.
Casey is a pharmacy major.
Gabby said, Sometimes we
get a little jealous, but it makes
us work harder.
With three daughters playing
on two different teams Judy sees
a lot of volleyball. FromAugust
to November we have no life but
volleyball. We dont even eat at
home, but I live for it. I dont ever
want to miss a game.
Eight times this season
Wyoming Area and Wilkes had
games on the same day. The
minute the Wyoming Area game
is over we drive over to Wilkes to
see Caseyplay. Its always a close
call.
Her husband goes with her
when he is not working.
The sisters all agree that vol-
leyball is an underrated and un-
der appreciated sport, both at
Wyoming Area and in general.
Our school is all about foot-
ball, Mallory said. Some kids
think volleyball is like a joke, but
we take it seriously.
The sisters said most kids
dont growup playing volleyball
as they did and thats the prob-
lem. Theres no real elementary
program, Casey said. Little
kids play baseball, basketball
and soccer.
The sisters were all basketball
players when they were younger.
I started basketball at the YM-
CA in second grade, Casey
said. I was definitely more of a
basketball player. I started vol-
leyball at Wyoming Area in sev-
enth grade and by my freshman
year I was more of a volleyball
player.
Mallory and Gabby made a
similar evolution from basket-
ball to volleyball. Mallory said
its more exciting than basket-
ball. You get more of a rush be-
cause you have to get to 25 to
win.
Gabby had to choose between
soccer and volleyball this season
when the PIAAmoved girls soc-
cer from spring to fall. It was an
easy choice. Volleyball is num-
ber one, she said.
Asked if they are likely to play
at the college level, Mallory, who
is 5-6, said, Im probably not
tall enough.
Gabby said she wants to go to
Temple and realizes shes not
good enough to play at a Divi-
sion I school.
That doesnt mean they are
done with the game.
The backyard will always be
there, Gabby said.

Facing a 4th-and-9, with four
minutes left in the first half Nick
OBrien and the Wyoming Area
offense had the GAR defense
right where they wanted them.
On the play OBrien threw a 30-
yard Td pass to a wide-open Jor-
dan Zezza to increase the War-
riors lead to 29-7 in their eventu-
al 48-15 win over the Grenadiers
on Friday in West Pittston.
The Warriors had scored their
first Td on a similar play, a 4th-
and-8, on a 25-yard pass to an
equally open Cody Schmitz. In
betweenthose pass, OBrienre-
turned two punts for Tds of 38
and 43 yards. The punt returns
were set up by WApunts by A. J.
Lenkaitis that pinned GARat the
5 and 9-yards lines and a swarm-
ing WA defense that put up 3-
and-outs both times.
On the first return, at 1:41 of
the first quarter, OBrien ran
along a wall down the WA side-
line untouched. On the second
return he made one tackler miss
at the point of the catchthenwent
down the home sideline again
along a superb wall.
WA also picked up two-points
on a safety in the first half and a
fourth Td on a 7-yard run by
OBrien to make it 35-7 at the
half. The Td was set up by a 36-
yard run by OBrien who got a
downfield block from Dylan
Pegg.
In the second half Cody
Schmitz capped a 67-yard 11-
play drive with a Td run of two
yards at 5:45 of the third quarter.
Schmitz set up his Td making a
diving catch of a pass from
OBrien for 19 yards to the GAR
7.
As much as the offense and
special teams were in synch, so
was the defense. The defense
sacked GARquarterback Moore
twice and allowed him to com-
plete only 9 of 27 for 128 yards.

Every opponent knows Ber-
wick has an exceptional running
back in Matt Cashman.
Jeff Steeber went from a re-
ceiving threat to a great change
of pace back, rushing for a sea-
son-high 97 yards on11attempts
including the game-winning
touchdown with 1:13 remaining
as the Bulldogs held off Pitt-
ston Area 23-20 in a Wyoming
Valley Conference matchup Fri-
day.
Its great. Ill do anything to
help the team, Steeber said of
taking more turns than usual in
the backfield. Our line blocked
great. That definitely was the
difference.
Steeber had run for 177 yards
this season, taking an occasional
turn to give Cashman a 1,000-
yard rusher a break. But Friday,
Steeber found holes in the Patri-
ots defense consistently.
The senior took a pitch to the
left to convert a third-and-29 late
in the first half. And he had 65
yards already when the Bulldogs
(7-1) got the ball backafter a Pitt-
ston Area punt at the Patriots 39
with 4:06 remaining.
Steeber took an end around to
the right for 18 yards on the first
snap of the game-winning drive
in the rain. On second-and-goal
from the 12, he took a pitch
around the right side for a touch-
down to give Berwick a 23-20
lead after Cashmans second
two-point run of the night.
It got pretty rough, Steeber
said of running in the mud.
Youve got to take small, chop-
py steps to keep from slipping.
But hey, a wins a win.
Jeff was amazing for us in the
fourth quarter, running the ball,
evading tackles, Cashman said.
Cashman ran 29 times for 178
yards and two touchdowns, as
the most effective offensive
weapon for Berwick. Two plays
after the Patriots (3-5) took a
14-7 lead in the second quarter,
he went over the left side into the
Pittston Area secondary.
Cashman was sandwiched by
two Patriots, each of whom
bounced off himin a different di-
rection. He then outran the rest
of the defense for a 52-yardscore
and a 15-14 Berwick lead.
Were mudders. We like to
play in anything, Cashman said.
Our team showed its heart and
soul to fight for this game.
Pittston Areas Joe Starinsky
was the Patriots do-all on this
night. He had three touchdown
catches among his seven recep-
tions for 177 yards. He was un-
touched on scores of 32 and 51
yards in the first half as Bulldogs
slipped trying to grab him for a
tackle.
In the third quarter, quarter-
back James Emmett looked to
his right before throwing down
the left sideline for Starinsky on
a 27-yard TDto give the Patriots
a 20-15 lead.
Hes an awesome athlete,
Cashman said of Starinsky. I
wouldnt be surprised if he
goes to a pretty good college
next season.
He also had an interception
that he returned 28 yards and
five tackles. His biggest stop
came on fourth-and-2 at the Pitt-
ston Area 16, as he filled a hole
and took down Cashman for no
gain with 5:39 remaining to pro-
tect the Patriots five-point lead.
Travis Potter had two of Ber-
wicks three sacks and Tanner
Weaver had three tackles for
loss, including a sack.
Though the Patriots had 193
yards passing to 50 for Berwick,
the Patriots had a heck of a time
running the ball. They had only
26 yards rushing in 21 atenmpts.
Emmett complete seven pas-
ses for 143. Gattuso completed
two for 50.
Patriots upset bid spoiled by late Dawg Td

breaks through the line for a gain.

Marty Michaels, Jeff Skursky,

over Wyoming Valley West on
Senior Day at the Bucky Harris
Sports Complex on Monday.
Allie Barber had a hat trick be-
fore 16 minutes were up and by

scoring six of the seven goals.
Barber assisted the seventh goal
to Maddy Mimnaugh.
Samantha Mayers, Carly Fil-
ipski and Liz Waleski had as-
sists. Jordan Cumbo had seven
saves for the shutout.
The LPs finished 12-3 in third
place in Division 3.
They are in the District 2A
Championship Tournament. The

Meanwhile at Wyoming Area

nal game on Wednesday at Tunk-
hannock 1-0 in the second over-
time.
Danielle Stillarty scored the
games only goal with six min-
utes left in the second overtime.
Jordan Chiavacci stopped 12

The LWs needed the win to

Lake Lehman on Tuesday 8-0.
They finished 8-7.
They also needed to win to
send coach Mike Sokolas out a
winner. He stepped down after
the game after two seasons.
Ive been splitting my time as
the coach and a full time student
in College at Marywood, he
said.
It was getting hard to balance
my time, and I need to focus go-
ing into my senior year.
Asked to assess his two sea-
sons at WAhe said, I came here
looking to pass my love of the
game on to the girls and to give a
soccer program with so much
potential some new life. In the
two years Ive been in charge I
feel as if those goals were
achieved, however it wasnt me.
The girls deserve all of the cred-
it.
They bought into my pro-
gram, worked hard day in and
dayout, andbelievedineachoth-
er. They deserved their first divi-
sion championship in 15 years,
and Im so glad they brought me
along for the ride.
I now know more about the
game than I ever have because I
learned something new every
day. When I decide to get back
into coaching in due time, I will
be much more knowledgeable
about the game thanks to my ex-
periences at WA. Where ever I
end up coaching, Ill always be a
Warrior; Ill always remember
where my high school coaching
career started and those who I
was lucky enough to cross paths
with.
The Lady Warriors won a divi-
sion championship last spring in
Sokolass first year..
