STORY: Page 18
When news
broke earlier
this week
about a labor
complaint
against the city
of Scranton,
putting Chief Dan Duffy in the
middle on ongoing contract ne-
gotiations (or alleged lack there-
of) between the Fraternal Order
of Police and the administration,
you could almost hear a collec-
tive “What?!” rise from homes
from the Hill Section to North
Scranton.
One thing became clear in pre-
paring our articles on the topic
this week: the complaint is NOT
against Duffy.
As both sides have openly ad-
mitted, Duffyis apawninapoliti-
cal ploy by the police union to re-
ach an agreement with the city
and, perhaps more specifically,
Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty.
Much like the “crime triangle”
the chief has discussed in the
past, there’s a central issue here
surrounded by three parties.
In stark contrast to crime be-
ingsurroundedbythevictim, the
locationandtheallegedcriminal,
the current union dispute puts
negotiations into between the
chief of police, the department’s
union and the city administra-
tion.
Duffy has fought against the
complaint as a perceived person-
al attack, but police union Presi-
dent Bob Martin said the depart-
ment supports the proactive
work of the chief. The argument
falls under a reclassification of
who’s in and who’s out as far as
the uniongoes inline witha Dec.
2002 order that followed a pet-
ition fromthe city.
Surprisingly quiet in the dis-
cussion that occurred this week
wasthethirdsideof thetriangle–
Mayor Doherty.
My efforts to reach the mayor
on Thursday fell flat, perhaps a
result of the Easter holiday. It
seemed everyone but reporters
were off on Friday.
Meanwhile, the complaint
could be a public relations night-
mare for a police department
whose appointed leader has con-
sistently recalled his roots as an
officer first and as a previous
member of the bargaining unit,
all the while encouraging the
public to become “part of the so-
lution” against crime in the city.
Public support in favor of the
chief has risenat afeverishpace–
a nice place to be for someone
whowas thrownunder thesquad
car.
Duffy has expressed fear that
citizens will start to reconsider
the relationships they’ve built
with officers.
The union hopes to win the
complaint but worries it will be
yet another labor-related issue
that they’vealreadyassumedwill
be ignored by the mayor.
Much like a pending Supreme
Court decisionthat couldcripple
the city’s finances – Martin’s
words, not mine – there will like-
ly be no winner here.
No easy ‘solution’ to labor complaint

the middle. E-mail him at

replace some bad behaviors
with healthier alternatives
as they kick off the Oxygen
Project, helping local smok-
ers quit to live and breathe
better.
The business is currently accepting
applications for the 15-week program
as they hope to introduce up to 25
smokers between the ages of 18 and 34
to the sport of running, incorporating
the advice of medical professionals to
help individualize their adrenaline-

W. Olive St., Scranton.
Building a community
The business was founded by Mat-

ly 2010. Upon opening, one of their big-
gest concerns was building a customer
base. They soonfoundthat one already
existed, but it was an unorganized
group.
“When all these people started com-
ing to us, we looked at each other and
said, ‘There are more runners around
here thanwe ever thought.’ We’re start-
ing to see the growth of an organized
running community in the area,” Ro-
setti said.

CRANTON – U.S.
Sen. Bob Casey (D-
Pa.) said Thursday
morning that local law en-
forcement officials areeffec-
tively fighting against many
types of crime in northeast-
ern Pennsylvania, but feder-
al funds are crucial to com-
bating a rise in heroin- and
gang-related activity.
Casey, speaking at a press
conference at his Scranton of-
fice, cited a report titled the
“Eastern Pennsylvania Drug
and Gang Threat Assessment
2011” which was released last
month by the National Drug In-
telligence Center as the need for
moneyfromWashingtoninlocal
municipalities.
The report looks at 42 of the
state’s 67 counties, accounting
for eight million people.
“We’re fighting a problem in
42 counties of eastern Pennsyl-
vania. This isn’t a couple of ci-
ties in a few counties. It demon-
strates the challenge that we
have,” Casey said.
The assessment outlines the
increase of New York area and
Dominican gangs in the region,
the sharp increase of heroin use
including among adolescents,
and frequent home invasions in
eastern Pennsylvania drug mar-
kets.
It accurately depicts criminal
activity that the Luzerne Coun-
ty District Attorney’s office has
encountered, Deputy District
Attorney David Pedri said. It es-
pecially reflects the influx of
street gangs in the city of Hazle-
ton.
“We see the drug trade mov-
ing farther into our communi-
ty,” Pedri said. “With federal
help, we’re able to take a proac-
tive approach to move forward
with our prosecutions. Drugs
are here in northeastern Penn-
sylvania. That’s a fact,” he said.
The job now is to make the
drugtrade a difficult one toprac-
tice.
“With federal grants and good
law enforcement, we’re doing
that,” Pedri said.
In Pennsylvania, authorities
seized nearly 264 kilograms of
heroin in 2010, a sharp increase
from the nearly 88 kilograms
seized in 2009, according to re-
ports given to the National Sei-
zure System. The jump, Casey
said, represents the good work
of law enforcement along with
the increase in the quantity of
heroin available.
The senator said he will con-
tinue to ask Attorney General
Eric Holder for more federal
money to combat drug- and
gang-related crime in the east-
ern part of the commonwealth.
“I want them to understand
the urgency of getting help,”
Casey said of a conversation he
hadwithmembers of the Justice
Department Thursday morn-
ing.
“The problem is that we’ve
got folks in Washington who
want to dramatically and sub-
stantially slash funding,” Casey
said. “We have to fight very hard
just to maintain funding… We
have a lot of work to do.”
A decrease in the number of
violent crimes “demonstrates
that at the federal, state, county
andmunicipal level, the mayors,
district attorneys, police offi-
cers, prosecutors and federal of-
ficials are doing their job,”
Casey said. “But on this partic-
ular challenge, they need more
help.”
Lackawanna County District
Attorney Andy Jarbola said the
challenge for local officials is
howto remain one step ahead of
criminal trends. The report, Jar-
bola said, offers crucial informa-
tion that helps officials properly
direct funds and resources.
“It comes down to dollars and
cents,” Jarbola said. “I certainly
want to applaud Sen. Casey for
his efforts in getting the money
that is absolutely necessary to
keep one step ahead of the bad
guys.”
After the press conference,
Casey conducted a closed-door
discussionwithlocal andfederal
officials on fighting back against
the region’s challenges.

CRANTON – In 1998, Dan
Duffy was hired by the Scran-
ton Police Department
throughits Comm-D, or Community
Development, Program as a patrol
officer. The hire did not place Duffy
in the department’s collective bar-
gaining unit as the program was
funded through Community Devel-
opment Block Grants.
As beat officers, Duffy said Comm-D
workers were used as a “nothing more
than a bargaining chip” in contract nego-
tiations during that time.
When he was sworn in as the city’s chief
of police on September 8, Duffy was re-
moved from the bargaining unit in line
with a Dec. 27, 2002, order that approved
the city’s petition to remove the superin-
tendent from the bargaining unit.
His position became an issue this week
as the police union filed an unfair labor
complaint against the city of Scranton dat-
ed April 14 for his March 20 arrest of John
J. McHugh for possession of marijuana.
McHugh was also wanted for an outstand-
ing bench warrant.
While the complaint is against the city
administration and not against the chief,
as clarified by Fraternal Order of Police
President Bob Martin, Duffy said he’s still
offended by it.
“Here I am at a high point in my career
whenI’mdoingas muchas possiblycanfor
the city of Scranton…and I’m a bargaining
chip again,” Duffy said. “I was out being
proactive when I was a non-collective bar-
gaining unit member in 1998. I’m back in
GOOD COP, BAD COP

The unfair labor practice filed by the police union last week against the city takes issue with an arrest Chief Dan Duffy made on March 20 in West Scranton.
S
CRANTON – The filing of
an unfair labor practice
complaint against the city
of Scranton on April 14 represents
a list of complaints that have been
ignored by administrative offi-
cials, including Scranton Mayor
Chris Doherty, Fraternal Order of
Police President Bob Martin said.
The complaint originates in the Dec.
27, 2002, approved order that excluded
the superintendent of the department
from the collective bargaining unit in a
petition for unit clarification from the
city; andScrantonPoliceChief DanDuf-
fy’s off-duty arrest of a man in posses-
sion of marijuana on March 20.
“The lawis that he (Duffy) is not part
of thebargainingunit,” Martinsaid. “He
should be able to go out and make ar-
rests…but becauseof thefact that heleft
the bargaining unit at the mayor’s push-
ing, he can’t do bargaining unit work.”
Efforts toreachDohertyfor comment
were unsuccessful.
Members of the FOP, Martin said,
support the chief, but he crossed a legal
line last month.
“OnMarch20, hereceivedsomecom-
plaints andtookit uponhimself toget in
his car. He went over to West Side and
came across this guy wanted for a war-
rant, so he arrested him,” he countered.
“It doesn’t take a whole lot of rocket sci-
ence to figure it out. He was on patrol.
He was doing bargaining unit work.

TAYLOR – Borough resi-
dents had the chance to learn
about cyberbullying and Inter-
net harassment Wednesday eve-
ning through a presentation by
Lackawanna County Deputy
District Attorney Frank Castel-
lano.
Castellano spoke before
members and guests of the Tay-
lor Neighborhood Crime
Watch, a citizens’ group in Tay-
lor. Presentations like the one
given Wednesday are happen-
ing throughout Lackawanna
County.
“We spend a lot of time in
schools and a lot of time in com-
munities and spend a lot of time
talking to the people about is-
sues that are important to us be-
cause a community is really a
collaborative effort between
law enforcement, municipal
government, school districts,
and concerned citizens,” Cas-
tellano said.
The advent of the Internet
and social media sites has taken
bullying to a very different lev-
el.
“Bullying and harassment
have been going on forever; it is
not a new thing. It has been go-
ing on since we all were chil-
dren but it happened in a differ-
ent form,” Castellano said.
“Now, with the advent of
technology, this idea of being
able to bully or harass some-
body has taken on a whole new
meaning because it is easier.
You don’t really need a lot of
guts to communicate some-
thing from the privacy of your
own home to somebody that
you wouldn’t have the gump-
tion to say face-to-face.”
Children as young as those in
third grade now have their own
computers and cell phones but,
as Castellano explained, they
may not necessarily understand
the power of their words. Cyber-
bullying and Internet harass-
ment are not protected under
the First Amendment, he said.
“There is a real difference
here between First Amendment
free speech and a crime. I don’t
think a lot of kids understand
that and, unfortunately, I don’t
think a lot of adults understand
that, either,” he said. “We all
know that as citizens of the
United States and as citizens of
Pennsylvania we have First
Amendment freedoms….We
still have the freedom to ex-
press ourselves.
“That is not what we are talk-
ing about in these kinds of
cases,” he continued. “Now we
have those words, phrases, and
comments that cross the line
and are no longer protected by
the First Amendment but they
are now crimes because they
are threatening or they are ha-
rassing or they, in some way,
cause the receiver of the mess-
age to feel that they are in dan-
ger.”
The district attorney’s office
steps into a situation once the
recipient of the messages be-
gins to perceive danger.
“If you say to someone, text
it, type it, e-mail, it or post it,
“I’m going to kill you”, that is
not protected by the First
Amendment. That is the crime
of a terroristic threat,” he said.
“If the person who received that
message truly feels harassed or
threatened by it, then law en-
forcement considers it a crime.”
Castellano suggested that
parents review e-mails and text
messages and to learn who
their children are becoming
friends with on their social net-
works.
“If you are a parent, be an in-
trusive parent,” he said. “There
is no definition of a small-town
schoolhouse anymore. Our kids
have access to kids and people
all over the world.”

ing, you start to run or work
out more. Then, all of a sud-
den, you find yourself eating
better. You find yourself drink-
ing a little bit less or going out
less. It all naturally feeds into
one another, whether it’s con-
scious or not. It’s the rule of un-
intended consequences, but
it’s a good one,” Rosetti said.
The American Lung Associ-
ation teaches behavioral mod-
ification in their programs to
avoid “triggers” that may
cause a former smoker to start
up again, something that nico-
tine gum or other cessation
methods don’t provide, accord-
ing to ALA program specialist
Anthony Delonti.
He warned that once a lung
is damaged, however, “the
damage is done.”
“There are some reversible
things like chronic bronchitis,
which a lot of smokers get, that
can actually be helped. Things
like emphysema can be
stemmed, so it doesn’t get to
the point where people are just
reliant on oxygen all the time.
Throughout a smoker’s life,
there’s always going to be
some emphysema, whether it’s
really felt or it’s a shortness of
breath,” Delonti said.
Working with a group of oth-
er smokers also allows them to
relate to one another, SRC co-
founder Matthew Byrne add-
ed.
“It’s bringing people togeth-
er with similar struggles and a
common goal of getting
healthy. People can get hooked
on running. It’s been proven
that it’s addictive.”
Rosetti also stressed the eco-
nomic benefits of breaking the
habit. If the health dangers
don’t “trigger that sense of im-
mediacy,” he believes the num-
bers will.
“People are spending a
shocking amount of money on
cigarettes, and the unemploy-
ment rate is very high. We’re in
a persistent recession, particu-
larly in this region of the coun-
try, so to continue to go out
and spend money on some-
thing like smoking is beyond
irresponsible,” Rosetti said.
“That’s $40 or $50 a month,
and there’s not just direct
costs. There are higher insur-
ance premiums paid if you
check that smoker’s box. May-
be more dry cleaning, fire in-
surance, and greater long-term
healthcare costs.”

CRIMINAL
COMPLAINTS
SCRANTON – Low income
families and the homeless of
Lackawanna County will receive
a $165,000 boost from the state
after Lackawanna County Com-
missioners unanimously ap-
proved the distribution of Act
137 funds at their April 13 meet-
ing.
Act 137, passed by the state
legislature in 1992, permits the
county to increase fees for re-
cording mortgages and deeds to
raiserevenuefor affordablehous-
ing, increasing its availability to
residents whose annual income
is less thanthe medianincome of
the county.
Last year, the county collected
about $180,000 for housing pro-
grams, and approximately
$165,000 infunds are anticipated
for 2011, Director for Planning
and Economic Development
Harry D. Lindsay said.
The First-Time-Homebuyer
Program, facilitated by Neigh-
borhood Housing Services of
Lackawanna County, will receive
$110,000; the LowIncome Home
Energy Assistance Program, pro-
vided by the Scranton-Lacka-
wanna Human Development
Agency, will receive $40,000; the
Permanent Supportive Housing
Program, operated by United
Neighborhood Centers of North-
easternPennsylvania, will accept
$12,500; and $2,500 is reserved
for general administration.
Lindsay saidthat LIHEAPpro-
vided emergency repairs or re-
placement of malfunctioningfur-
naces for 11 to 12 low income
families in 2010. He also praised
the work of UNC on rehabilitat-
ing neighborhoods in South
Scranton and NHS for never de-
faultingonanyof their loans, due
inpart torequiredcredit counsel-
ing.
“We appreciate the opportuni-
tytocontinuethis important pro-
gramfor modest income families
throughout the county. To date,
since October 2009, we’ve
helped 11 families of modest in-
come become homeowners, fa-
cilitating about $1.43 million
worth of purchases throughout
the county from Carbondale all
the way down to Dunmore,”
NHS Executive Director Jesse
Ergott told commissioners.
Michael Hanley, executive di-
rector of UNC, said that his orga-
nization obtained a grant from
the Department of Housing and
Urban Development for
$125,000, requiringthemtoraise
a 20 percent local match. They
have raised “about half” of that
match, and participants must
pay a “modest fee” to be in the
program.
“This is for eight individuals
who have been chronically
homeless. They’vebeenlivingon
the street many times for a num-
ber of years due to special needs
that they may have. This brings
them off the street, puts them in
an apartment, and provides sup-
port services for them,” Hanley
added.

SCRANTON – In a 3-2
spilt decision, City Council
gave final approval to the
removal of 78 parking me-
ters surrounding Communi-
ty Medical Center to allow
permit parking for hospital
employees until renova-
tions are completed at their
staff parking garage.
CMC agreed to compen-
sate the city $2,000 per me-
tered spot, payable on a
quarterly basis. At council’s
April 12 meeting, they
amended the legislation to
deposit the money in a spe-
cial city account instead of
having the funds benefit
the Scranton Parking Au-
thority, earmarking the
money for the police and
fire departments.
“We’re looking to set
them aside for public safety
expenses in the event of
layoffs and other possible
situations,” Councilman
Jack Loscombe said.
The fee, Council Presi-
dent Janet Evans ex-
plained, will be paid to the
city of Scranton since

on Tuesday, including the priv-

Authority and the Department

Council’s Finance Chairman
Frank Joyce said at previous
meetings that he believes up to
$11.3 million has already been
misspent in the 2011 budget.
The council majority has said
often in recent weeks that they
would not be in favor of the ru-

SCRANTON – Local elected officials, television per-
sonalities, actors and more will unite on stage this
weekendtoprove that history, above all, canbe funand
engaging.
The Lackawanna Historical Society will host the sec-
ond annual “You Live Here: You Should Know This!”
local history quiz show in Shopland Hall at the Scran-
ton Cultural Center on Friday and Saturday, April 29
and 30, beginning at 7 p.m. The one-time admission
cost for bothnights is $10for adults and$5for children.
The 2011 quiz show will fol-
low a “Jeopardy!”-meets-“Fam-
ily Feud” format with individual
contestants choosing questions
worth 10 to 50 points from cate-
gories such as “People,” “Plac-
es,” and“Industry,” accordingto
LHS Director Mary Ann Moran-
Savakinus. If the contestant an-
swers incorrectly, the opposing
three-member team has a
chance to steal the points.
Survey says competition will
again be fierce this year with the
championship and runner-up
teams each returning with one
new team member each.
Champions Catherine Cullen
and Jack McGuigan will be
joined by David DeCosmo, and
runners-up David Wenzel and
Dan Perry will team with An-
drea Mulrine.
“They were very competitive.
They took the game seriously,
and they came to win,” Moran-
Savakinus said of each of last
year’s contestants.
Quiz questions are created by
students at Valley Viewand Riv-
erside high schools, and the stu-
dents take on roles as co-hosts
during the actual event. Stu-
dents were chosen by Valley
Viewteachers Cynthia Cermina-
ro and Kathleen Myers along
with Riverside educator Shawn
Murphy.
In addition, students are help-
ing to create the game board,
PowerPoint presentations and
table skirts for the competition.
Contestants in 2010 knew
quite a bit about the area’s indus-
trial history and some of its
high-profile people.
“People knew a lot more than
we originally gave them credit
for,” Moran-Savakinus said.
In all, it allows contestants
and audience members to laugh
and learn at the same time.
“The bottom line is that local
history can be fun.”

SCRANTON – Experts representing
manufacturing, education and private in-

Senate Democratic Policy Committee
that investments into education, on-the-

rowing of additional money.
Council Vice President Pat
Rogan said he would be willing
todiscuss thedeficit withMayor
Chris Doherty but would not
even negotiate these suggesti-
ons if brought up.
With the better enforcement
of rental registration and imple-
mentation of the StreetSmart
parking meter programdelayed,
Rogan suggested other sources
of revenue for the city.
“I have talked to many people
in the business community over
the last month, and they believe
that the sale of the Sewer Au-
thority would bring in nearly
$50 million, andthat’s a lowesti-
mate. With the $50 million
brought in, wecanclosethebud-
get gap as well as instituting a
city-wide paving program. The
majority of the streets inthe city
will finallybe pavedonce andfor
all,” Rogan said.
He believes the authority is
rife withnepotismandthat their
costs to the city have only gone
up over the years. He also pro-
posed the privatization of the
DPW.
“The refuse portion of the
DPW can be done easily by the
private sector. Unlike police and
fire work which should not be
done by the private sector, gar-
bage collectioncan. It is inmany
other towns and many other ci-
ties,” Rogan said.
At the very least, he added,
the city should conduct an effi-
ciency survey of the DPW. He
feels that garbage collection
could be done in four days each
week, leaving the fifth day for
fixing potholes and other road-
work.
Council President Janet
Evans said she also favors the
privatization of the Scranton
Sewer Authority, as well as the
refinancing the city’s debt and
the sale or lease of the city’s
parkinggarages after 60days no-
tice to the Scranton Parking Au-
thority.
COUNCIL
Continued from page 10
The hospital will also pro-
vide proper signage to indi-
cate the new parking ar-
rangement.
Additionally, they revised
the legislation to place bags
over the meters instead of
having the meters physically
removed. On Tuesday, they
made another amendment to
limit the agreement to Dec.
31, 2011, or whenever the
employee parking garage re-
opens, whichever comes
first.
The agreement will affect
23 meters located in the
1700 and 1800 blocks of Mul-
berry Avenue, 31 spots in the
200 and 300 blocks of Arthur
Avenue, 21 spots in the 1700
and 1800 blocks of Linden
Street, and three spots in the
300 block of Colfax Avenue.
While the amendments
were passed unanimously,
Councilmen Bob McGoff and
Pat Rogan voted against the
final passage of the legisla-
tion. Rogan said that he be-
lieves CMC employees
should park in the hospital’s
other garage and leave the
meters for visitors, noting
that additional parking is al-
ready being used by CMC in
the adjacent Nay Aug Park.
Evans said outpatients re-
ceive free parking in the vis-
itors’ parking garage, so that
would allow them fewer
spaces. Rogan also argued
that the garage’s $4 flat fee
for 24 hours of parking isn’t
fair to visitors only staying
for a short time.
“Passing this legislation is
simply a vote to increase
fees for people who visit rel-
atives at CMC hospital,” Ro-
gan said. “I personally be-
lieve that the city has done
more than enough to accom-
modate the CMC in that re-
gion…Now they want to take
away 150 spots.”
Rogan encouraged his fel-
low council members to “see
the light,” but Councilman
Frank Joyce said that the
money paid by CMC would
be far more than what would
be collected from the meters,
which are not always occu-
pied. Funding public safety
is also important, he said.
“If we could have more rev-
enue coming into the city,
which would ultimately help
save police and fire posi-
tions, then, yes, I have seen
the light. I’ve seen the light
of voting this through and
saving our police and fire po-
sitions,” Joyce said.
“This legislation repre-
sents a compromise. No sit-
uation is ideal,” Evans
agreed.
Council ultimately passed
the agreement 3-2.
They also unanimously ap-
proved the introduction of
legislation to execute an ad-
dendum to the city’s agree-
ment with the Scranton
Parking Authority, then ta-
bled it to allow city solicitor
Boyd Hughes review and
amend the legislation for fu-
ture passage.
As it stands, the legisla-
tion says that when any me-
ters are taken out of service
and replaced by permit park-
ing for four months or more,
the fees will be paid directly
to the city, not the authority.

DICKSON CITY – A 41-year-
old man allegedly repeatedly
swore at police and had to be
tased twice after they were
called to his Templeton Drive
home for a dispute with his sis-
ter.
Paul Jacob Coyne, of Temple-
ton Drive, Dickson City, faces
charges of disorderly conduct,
resisting arrest, harassment and
obstructing the administration
of thelawfor theallegedApril 17

According to a criminal com-
plaint:
Officers Christopher Tully
and Scott Benzeleski were dis-
patched to the Templeton Drive
home just before 10 a.m. Coyne
answeredthe door andallegedly
told police they should “not be
on his (expletive) property” and
that they “better get the (exple-
tive) away” from his home.
Eileen Coyne, his sister, said
he was being verbally abusive
toldher andlater allegedthat he
pushed her throughout the
home. When officers attempted
to follow her to the side of the
house, Mr. Coyne charged at
Tully, became verbally aggres-
sive toward Benzeleski and
charged at him, too.
Officers told Mr. Coyne “a to-
tal of 7 (sic) times” that he was
under arrest. When he stepped
towards officers he was tased in
thechest. Heattemptedtostand
up after the first taser cycle end-

SCRANTON – A city man al-
legedly held a young child by an
arm and a leg over the railing of
a set of stairs inside the Mall at
Steamtown.
Shawn Lamel Mayo, 26, of
Market Street, Scranton, faces
charges of reckless endanger-
ment, child endangerment and

Scranton police were con-
ducting a plain clothes detail in-
side the mall when they observ-
ed a man later identified as
Mayo pulling a child through
the mall’s center court.

was placed into the custody of
his mother, Tasia Davis.
Mayo was held for a lack of

SCRANTON – A man out on
bail allegedly swallowed a roach
to hide it from police during a
traffic stop this week.
Jameson Emmanuel Duggan,
27, of Cedar Avenue, Scranton,
faces charges of possession of
marijuana and drug parapherna-
lia and tampering with physical
evidence for the alleged April 19
incident.
According to an affidavit:
Scranton Patrolman William
Golden stopped Duggan’s vehi-
cle on Cedar Avenue for an im-
proper lane change. Police rec-
ognized Duggan for his recent
distribution of illegal drugs.
He also had a summary war-
rant our for failure to pay for a
criminal trespassing charge
from Magistrate Alyce Hail-
stone Farrell.
Duggan mumbled when po-
lice asked if he understood a
written warning, and police sus-
pected he was concealing nar-
cotics. He allegedly struggled
with Golden and Patrolman Mi-
chael Costanzo, at which time
he swallowed all contraband in
his mouth.
He told the officers he “swal-
lowed a roach…and that he was
scared because he was out on
bail,” the complaint states.
Duggan was held for a lack of
$5,000 bail after an April 19 ar-
raignment. A preliminary hear-
ing is set for April 26.

“Chief Duffy just happens to
be a part of the collateral dam-
age in all of this,” referring to
the union using labor com-
plaints as a “tool to get the
mayor to sit down and nego-
tiate” terms of their contracts.
“We knew that the chief
should be out doing this kind
of work. Nowthey’remadat us
because we’re making them
stick to the rules,” Martin said
in an interview Thursday.
Martin also takes issue with
a March 25 order that sup-
ports the union’s allegation
that thecityimproperlyunilat-
erally transferred “the work of
processingarrestedpersons to
Lackawanna County employ-
es (sic).”
Any decision in the union’s
favor in a Supreme Court of
Pennsylvania case involving
the ability of a financially dis-
tressed municipality like
Scranton to alter arbitration
awards issued to labor unions
could destroy the city’s financ-
es, Martin said.
“If we were to take a total
win at the Supreme Court, the
financial consequences to the
city of Scranton would be dev-
astating. I don’t thinkwe’rego-
ing to take a clean win, but we
don’t have to take a clean win
to cripple this city,” he said.
Still, he contends, “The
mayor doesn’t recognize the
labor board or labor law.”

the same boat again.”
The chief’s non-duty arrests since taking of-
fice last year have made headline news, and he
assumes he’s had a dozen or so of those crimi-
nal apprehensions since September. The com-
plaint, he said, is senseless.
“How it was put was, ‘You can’t actively go
out and look for crime.’ Yeah. OK,” Duffy said,
dismissing the complaint. “I’m a policeman. I
don’t know what else to do.”
What it won’t do is deter his personal proac-
tive policy, he said.
“I’m still going to be a citizen, I’m still going
to be a police officer, and I’m going to take a
vested interest in this city. For me not to act, I
should be fired. My oath is still the same as
their oath…You don’t take and oath and say, ‘I,
Daniel J. Duffy, do solemnly swear to be a col-
lective bargaining unit member.’ The first oath
of office you take is that you’re a policeman.”
Duffy said phone calls and e-mails from citi-
zens have shown their support, along with the
individual visits he’s receivedfromhis ownoffi-
cers. Those menandwomen, he said, don’t rep-
resent the union’s complaint.
“I knowthat the majority of our department
does not agree with this, and they find it very
embarrassing,” Duffy said. “Other people who
have headed up different lodges of the Frater-
nal Order of Police that have called me or walk-
ed up to me and apologized. If that’s not a huge
message to the union representatives, I don’t
know who the message is to.”
In the complaint, union officials state that
“the work of apprehending and arresting indi-
viduals has been the sole and exclusive prov-
ince of the members of the bargaining unit,” in-
cluding off-duty arrests. The 2002 order ex-
cludes the superintendent of the department
from the bargaining unit as a managerial em-
ployee.
“Do I believe the chief should be in the bar-
gaining unit? No way! I have to make decisions
that will ultimately impact the department,”
Duffy said, adding that if his leadership result-
ed in union complaints that he shouldn’t bene-
fit from any legal battles.
Duffy said he hopes the complaint doesn’t
negativelyaffect the public’s views of officers in
the Scranton Police Department.
“They’re the ones that go in and do that job
day in and day out,” he said. “I respect what
theydobecauseI dowhat theydo. I’mjust lead-
ing by example. I’m a supervisor, but that
doesn’t eliminate me frombeing proactive and
going out and arresting criminals.”

Electric City Runners and uti-
lizing popular locations like
the Lackawanna River Heri-
tage Trail, Lake Scranton and
Nay Aug Park, the SRC has in-
troduced their own runs and
walks each Wednesday at 6
p.m.
The innovation didn’t stop
there.
“One of the ideas and the ap-
proaches we had when we
opened the store was to be
morethana traditional retailer.
It’s really a community orient-
ed business, so we
wanted to use this
store as a platform
to pursue a couple
of chosen commu-
nity initiatives,”
Rosetti explained.
Last year, they
started the Team
Survivor program,
training a team of
breast cancer survi-
vors to run the
Race for the Cure.
Riding high on that
success, the SRC
decided to take on
smoking cessation
with the Oxygen
Project.
Trading
addictions
Approximately
20,000 adults in
Pennsylvania die
annually from
smoking-related causes, and
tobacco-related health care
costs residents about $4.7 bil-
lion annually in the state, ac-
cording to information provid-
ed by the SRC. After reading
about the “shockingly high”
rates of smoking in northeast-
ern Pennsylvania alone, Roset-
ti began developing a way to
use his knowledge to fight
back.
“One of the things that both-
ered us is that in most tradi-
tional smoking cessation pro-
grams, the exercise aspect of it
was always treated as an after-
thought. A lot of people who
quit smoking put on weight.
This is a way to mitigate that
potential weight gain or obes-
ity risk,” Rosetti said.
“Whenyousmoke, whenyou
take that nicotine into your
lungs, it replicates an adrena-
line release,” he continued.
“It’s a provenscientific fact that
20 minutes of rigorous endu-
rance exercise and beyond rep-
licates that same feeling - that
runner’s high, so to speak.
“We’re trying to get them
hooked on something else,
something that’s a little bit
healthier.”
“You’re not reducing your
stress chemically. You’re doing
it through the natural endor-
phins,” Anthony Delonti, pro-
gram specialist at the Ameri-
can Lung Association, said.
Delonti saidthat the number
one cause of death for smokers
is heart disease because of a
lack of oxygen to the heart
muscle, the tightening of the
arteries, andhigher bloodpres-
sure and heart rates.
“It’s an unnatural higher
heart rate, as compared to
when you’re running.”
The odds of success
While some
smokers may be-
lieve it’s too late to
quit, Rosetti said
manyserious long-
term health impli-
cations can be
avoided if they
kick their butts at
an early enough
age.
“Even the high-
est success rates of
smoking cessation
programs is 30per-
cent,” Rosetti said.
“Say we get 10 peo-
ple to quit smok-
ing out of the 25
that we take.
That’s a coup –
that’s a big win.”
Byrne said he
has personal rea-
sons for gettingbe-
hind the project.
“My dad
smoked for 50 years. It’s why
he struggled with his health
most of his life. Hepassedaway
two years ago. When he finally
didquit about four or five years
ago, it still took its toll for so
many years. It was tough,” he
said.
“We supported him and
begged him for so many years
to quit and he just couldn’t.
When he had a scare, he was fi-
nally able to put them down.”
Rosetti said the concept is
far froma “holier-than-thou an-
ti-smoking crusade.”
“This is more of a communi-
ty initiative to lend a hand and
take our knowledge of the
sport that we love and apply
that to something new in an
unconventional way to an old
game with high stakes,” Roset-
ti added.
“I want people to put the
Lung Association out of busi-
ness the right way,” Delonti
said. “We succeeded with tu-
berculosis, so let’s see what we
can do with this.”

isn’t working is what we’ve had
to do in the past two years due
to budget cuts,” he said.
Promising companies have
been turned away and invest-
ments have been scaled back,
losing opportunities for the
state, he said.
Locally, institutions like
Johnson College have provid-
ed skill-based education that
yield positive employment re-
sults.
One hundred percent of the
school’s precision machining
students had job offers upon
graduation last year, President
Ann Pipinski said, and a weld-
ing training program was rein-
troduced last fall to meet the
needs of the Marcellus Shale
natural gas drilling boom.
“We need to keep our em-
ployees in northeastern Penn-
sylvania trained to be able to
get onto those job sites and
earn a good living,” Paul Cas-
parro, training director for the
International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers and Nation-
al Electrical Contractors Asso-
ciation apprenticeship pro-
gram, said.
“It’s better that our peoplebe
therethanpeoplefromFlorida,
Alabama, Texas, and Oklaho-
ma. We need to employ our
own people.”
The message was no sur-
prise to area Senators John
Blake (D-Archbald) and John
Yudichak (D-Plymouth Town-
ship).
“You saw the stream of that
fabric…about the necessity for
us to invest in education and
training,” Blake said after the
hearing. “We need to create
better connections between
our academic community, our
trainingcommunity andindus-
try in order to guarantee that
we’re using these dollars in the
most efficient and effective
manner.”
Yudichaksaidthemessageis
one he’s received quite often
fromarea CEO’s and vice presi-
dents on manufacturing facili-
ty tours.
“If they’re going to compete
with the world, they need a
highly educated, highly skilled
workforce,” Yudichak said.
“That’s why the cuts the basic
education and the cuts to high-
er educationaresoout of touch
with the economic reality on
the ground.
“We can position Pennsylva-
nia to be the keystone state of
energy, but we need to make
those investments in educa-
tion.”

SCRANTON – A city man,
listed in current court papers
as being homeless, will face
four sets of charges for three
separate events when he ap-
pears in court on Monday.
Anthony Padelski, 28, was
arrested April 15 following
two alleged burglaries in the
Hill Section, but additional
charges against him date back
to Sept. 1, 2010, according to
court records.
According to an affidavit:
Padelski and another man,
Jordon Williams, 25, of South
Webster Avenue, face charges
of burglary, criminal trespass-
ing and criminal mischief fol-
lowing the alleged theft of
copper pipes from a home on
Madison Avenue. Police later
located what they suspected
was a getaway vehicle at a car
wash on Ash Street.
As Patrolman Lowell Ste-
vens approached the car, it
sped away. Police began pur-
suit and Cpl. Rich Bachman
later captured Williams on
foot on Monroe Avenue.
Williams faces additional
charges of theft by unlawful
taking, possessing an instru-
ment of crime and receiving
stolen property. He was ar-
raigned April 16 and held for a
lack of $10,000 bail. A prelimi-
nary hearing is set for April
25.
Meanwhile, Padelski had al-
legedly broken into a base-
ment on East Gibson Street in
an attempt to hide from po-
lice, bringing additional
charges from the April 15 in-
cident. He was captured by
Cpl. Joe Harris as he tried to
escape out the front door of
the home.
Padelski was also charged
for an alleged Sept. 1, 2010,
burglary on Jackson Street in-
volving terroristic threats
against a former girlfriend
and another alleged burglary
involving threats and harass-
ment against the same woman
on Nov. 8, 2010 on Prospect
Avenue.
In all, Padelski faces four
counts of criminal trespass-
ing; three counts of burglary;
two counts each of terroristic
threats and criminal mischief;
and one count each of simple
assault, harassment, theft by
unlawful taking, receiving
stolen property, fleeing from
police, driving with a sus-
pended license, and criminal
conspiracy.
He faces $10,000 bail for
each of the four incidents. He
was arraigned on April 16, and
a preliminary hearing is set
for April 25.

quite like Sevendust.

PECKVILLE - After you’ve
had your fill of candy, a glass of
wine may be just what the doc-
tor ordered to take the edge off
of a busy holiday weekend.
OnApril 24from2p.m. until 7
p.m., the Ferrone Family Win-
ery, 505 Main St., Peckville, is
unveiling its newest wine flavor,
sangria. For a $7 cover, the win-
ery’s sangria party will give peo-
ple the chance not only to taste
the new flavor but also to see
howit can be used in recipes, in-
cluding a fruit dip and even Lon-
don broil.
Sunday’s events are part of a
weekend-long celebration to
helpbreakupanotherwisequiet

rone explained.
“April, as a wine month, is
quiet,” he said. “There isn’t
much going on because May is
the month when everything
starts off because it is further in-
to the spring and more people
are out and about. From Febru-
arytoMayit is prettyquiet; after
January 2 no one really thinks
about drinking wine for a
while.”

each Sreesonti,
manager of the
recently opened
Thai Thai Scranton,
said he hopes to at-
tract customers with
the eatery’s generous
portions and humble
pricing.
“Thai Thai Scranton
will be sure to please,”
Sreesonti said of his
new endeavor at 309
N. Washington Ave.,
Scranton.
He currently operates
the Thai Thai location in
Wilkes-Barre, which
opened in 2007. The new
restaurant marks his re-
turn to downtown Scran-
ton.
Thai cuisine typically
uses a balance of spicy,
hot, sweet, and salty fla-
vors in lightly prepared
dishes with special atten-
tion to detail in appear-
ance and aroma.
Thai Thai Scranton
serves nearly 120 meals,
including traditional fa-
vorites such as Pad Thai,
which are noodles with
shrimp, chicken, eggs,
ground peanuts, bean
curd, scallion and bean
sprouts as well as more
modernized dishes such as
Fettuccine Kee Mao, a stir-
fried fettuccine with the
patron’s choice of chicken,
pork or beef over broccoli,
tomato, onion, bell pep-
per, egg, chili and basil
leaves.
Prices range from $6.99
appetizers including
steamed wontons or crispy
spring rolls to more filling
Chef Specialties at $16.99
and up, including a sau-
téed wild boar with red
curry paste, eggplant,
lime, coconut milk and
peppercorn.
Lunch specials are avail-
able Monday through Fri-
day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
for $7.99 with a choice of
beef, chicken or pork as
well as a soup of the day.
Lunch entrees typically in-
clude a choice of Pad Thai,
curry, macaroni, rice, or
noodle soup.
Invented in the 1980s in
Taiwan, another novel in-
clusion on the menu is
bubble tea, which is a
foam tea sweetly flavored
with fruit or milk. Thai
Thai Scranton’s version of
the tea is more reminis-
cent of a smoothie or milk-
shake. This version of bub-
ble tea is often called a
Snow Bubble.
The drink also contains
“tapioca pearls” - round,
chewy tidbits found in a
bunch at the bottom of the
cup – and is served with
an oversized straw. Thai
Thai Scranton offers over
twenty flavors of bubble
tea, including mango, pa-
paya, strawberry, honey-
dew and coconut.

On Sunday, May 1, Scranton
will join over 60 countries in
the celebration of World Laugh-
ter Day with activities that will
make the community smile and
laugh it up at Nay Aug Park and
Afa Gallery, both in Scranton.
Scranton’s World Laughter
Day celebration is presented by
Laugh to Live! owner Jeannine
M Luby, who is a certified
laughter yoga leader has been
organizing smaller events each
year around the time of World
Laughter Day - celebrated the
first Sunday in May - for the
past four years.
“We mark our calendars for
all kinds of occasions. I think
it’s important that we make
time to laugh, be happy and en-
joy the now instead of always
looking to what’s next,” Luby
said.
Laughter may help with the
prevention of heart attacks and
healthier blood flow, healthier
immune system, pain manage-
ment and more.
World Laughter Day activ-
ities in Nay Aug Park will take
place between noon and 3 p.m.
Events include laughter yoga at
noon, a 12:30 p.m. story time
with children’s author Angela
DeMuro and her Mu Birds, and
a 2 p.m. joke telling showcase
for children ages 5 to 12.
The laughter continues at
Afa Gallery, 514 Lackawanna
Ave., Scranton, from 5 to 7 p.m.
with a comedy show that fea-
tures comics including Kenny
Jay, Paul Spratt as MC, “The
Wingman” James Holeva, Bob-
by Keller, Jeremy Pryal, William
Robbins, John Walton, Michelle
Morgan and Jeannine M. Luby.
Admission to the show is a
$10 donation to benefit the Hu-
mor Therapy Fund and includes
a World Laughter Day T-Shirt,
while supplies last.
To get tickets for the comedy
show, event details or to make a
donation online, visit

joins in
celebration
of laughter
since faded away. Witherspoon
saidit’s a credit totheir personal,
yetrelatablesongwritingthathas
produced eight albums and kept
them “still relevant” in an ever-
changingindustry.
“What youseeis what youget.
We’renot tryingtowritesongsto
necessarily be just like that one-
hit wonder…We’re a band that I
feel takeour timewiththesongs,
and it means a lot. I think every-
one can get something out of it.
We’re not preaching to anyone.
We’rejust writingabout stuff that
happens and goes on in our lives
the same as everyone else’s,” he
explained.
“If my brother comes in with
some lyrics, I definitely know
what he’s going through because
I might have been the guy who
was sitting in the back lounging
when he was crying thinking
about what he’s talking about in
the song. I think that’s what’s
beenabletokeepusstrong, being
like that.”
The band hasn’t been afraid to
experiment with their sound ei-
ther, mixing soulful melodies
with harsh breakdowns and dual
vocals. They also performacous-
tic versions of their songs, which
fans have embraced wholeheart-
edly. Witherspoon feels that the
bandhasalwaysbeenabletocon-
nect withtheir audience, nomat-
ter the size of the venue.
“In a Sevendust show, we al-
ways try to bring it in. To me,
they’remorelikefamilyreunions
but just in a bigger place. We al-
ways seem to somehow com-
mand the crowd, and I think
that’s somethingabandis ableto
do when you have a connection
withpeople.”
Now38, he’sgrownupwithhis
fans both literally and figurative-
ly.
“Honestly, I feel like we’ve all
grownuptogether ina sense. It’s
been a blessing for us to nowsee
that the cat that was my age…He
hastwokidsandmykidscometo
shows and guess what? His kids
come to the show now,” Wither-
spoonsaid.
“It’s been very interesting to
grow up with people on the
scene. That’s kind of how we’ve
done it because I don’t really like
to say that we have fans. I like to
say that we have family because
that’s a true statement.”
While it’s hard to leave his ac-
tual familyathomewhileontour,
he feels blessedtobe able totake
people away from their troubles
and“bring a piece of serenity” to
theirlives. Themusicseemstobe
as much of an escape to himas it
does tohis fans.
“We always found a way to
make Sevendust work. Even in
the darkest hours, I think we al-
waysthat wehadhopeenoughto
say, ‘You knowwhat, man? Even
if this all falls through, we could
get in the van or buy an old bus
and still show up and some of
those beautiful people that have
grown up with us are going to
showuptotheshow, sowecando
this nomatter what,’” he said.
“It might not be the biggest,
but we knowsomebody is going
tocome out.”
When he is able to return
home, Witherspoonsaidhe’s still
able tobe the manhe is onstage,
but with a few“less cuss words.”
While both his children are also
musically inclined and enjoy
rocking out with their father, he
admits that his 11-year-old is still
not convincedthat heroldmanis
cool.
“Whenareyougoingtorealize
that I’m kind of cool?” he asked
with a laugh. “You better hurry
up before it’s too late and I’mnot
anymore!”

hether or not you find comedian Jim Flo-
rentine funny at first may depend on
which side of his joke you’re on. If you
like your humor on the edgier side, then you’re
probably already familiar with the infamous prank-
ster and co-host of “That Metal Show.”
He’ll pull no punches when he performs at Gyp-
sies Lounge & Nightclub at Mt. Airy Casino Resort
on Saturday, April 30, at 8 p.m.
Even as a child, Florentine
said he was a sarcastic trou-
blemaker. Being grounded
only gave him the opportuni-
ty to make prank phone
calls.
“I just did that out of bore-
dom. I’d just be sitting
home, so I’d pick up the
phone and start making
prank phone calls. I had
nothing better to do with
my time. Who’d have known
that I’d make a living out of
it later on in life?” Florentine
said.
The habit continued when
he started in stand-up come-
dy. While waiting to perform
later in the night, he’d an-
swer calls from telemarke-
ters and attempt to keep
them on the phone as long
as possible, eventually re-
cording five “Terrorizing
Telemarketers” albums of
pranks on unsuspecting
salesmen.
This caught the attention
of fellow comedians Adam
Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel,
who hired him for the Come-
dy Central hit “Crank Yank-
ers” in 2002.
Using puppets to reenact
the prank calls, Florentine
voiced the characters “Spe-
cial Ed” and his rude cousin
“Bobby Fletcher” for the du-
ration of the show’s run.
While he never walked away
from offensive material, the
show had few complaints
about its often edgy content.
“It’s a puppet, so some-
how you can get away with
it. Even cartoons – “Family
Guy,” “South Park,” all that
stuff – somehow, if it’s com-
ing through a puppet or a
cartoon, it’s OK in some
weird way. I don’t know how
that works,” Florentine said.
With comedy partner Don
Jamieson, he released two
DVDs of hidden camera high
jinks called “Meet The
Creeps.” The concept was
considered for a TV series,
but he said that executives
found it “too mean.”
“Any time you do a hidden
camera prank or just a prank
in general, it’s going to be
mean, whether it’s a little in-
nocent fun or whatever,”
Florentine said. “I guess it’s
because in our bits, we don’t
reveal and go, ‘Hey, we were
just joking around,’ and ev-
eryone’s all, ‘Oh, you got
me!’ We don’t do that. I
don’t like that. I like it to just
fade to black and people go,

pay bills on time, and 33
percent of adults have no
savings or retirement.

A
s I’m
care-
ful not to
mess up
my order, I
can’t help
but to overhear all the
feedback being given to
Cosmo Salerno, owner of
Cosmo’s Cheesesteaks
and Cheese Fries at 532
Moosic St., Scranton.
“The best damn sand-
wich I ever had,” said
Andrew Rodman of Sioux
City, Iowa. Rodman had
been visiting town with
his wife who was on com-
pany business with Wells
Fargo. Rodman ordered a
cheesesteak with Provo-
lone cheese and mush-
rooms.
“Tomorrow, I’m going to try
the fried onions,” said Rod-
man.
I went back to practicing my
order.
In Philadelphia, ordering
cheesesteaks is no joke. As you
enter the counter, you state
your order either “wit” or “wit
out,” referring to onions. Next
you proclaim your choice in
cheese: wiz, American, or
Provolone. The famous “soup
Nazi” Seinfeld episode comes
to mind, only switch the soup
for cheesesteaks.
The strict Philly-style order-
ing instructions are displayed
at Cosmo’s, although the
Scranton staff has a much
more laid back approach in
taking your order. The gal
who greeted me was as friend-
ly as possible and explained a
few different fry choices.
Cosmo’s in Scranton smacks
of a Philly cheesesteak joint;
cheese, bread, variations, even
the hot sauce instead of pizza
sauce. Salerno got it right, and
creating a Philadelphia-style
cheesesteak stop is no easy
feat.
But nowhere did I see the
cheesesteaks referred to as
“Philly cheesesteaks.”
It seems to me, whenever I
see the word “Philly cheese-
steaks” on a menu, I am usu-
ally let down. After all, in
Philadelphia, there just called
cheesesteaks.
Another gripe with what are
often branded as “Philly
cheesesteaks” is that a truly
authentic Philadelphia cheese-
steak never uses pizza or ma-
rinara sauce.
It’s hot sauce. You never,
ever, see marinara sauce as an
option.
It’s always hot sauce.
So I asked Salerno, why not
call them Philly cheesesteaks?
“I don’t need it. People

‘What the hell just happened?’
To me, that’s more exciting.”
Florentine also has a passion
for hard rock and heavy metal
music that he’s been able to
work into his career. He joined
Jamieson and Eddie Trunk to
co-cost “That Metal Show” on
VH1 Classic in 2008. Currently
in its seventh season, Floren-
tine said he found most of the
rockers he’s met to be down-to-
earth, enjoying his interview
with Black Sabbath drummer
Bill Ward the most.
“(Ward)’s really sharp. He’s
got some great stories, and
you don’t hear too much from
him…Just to have him on tell-
ing old Black Sabbath stories
was great,” he recalled.
Florentine took his comedy
to same stage as metal greats
Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer
during last year’s American
Carnage Tour, which was a
“challenge,” to say the least.
“I had to do three five-min-
ute sets between each band.
By the time Slayer came
on…the people in the crowd
were like, ‘Alright, enough al-
ready! We know you’re a come-
dian! C’mon!’ So I’d bring hot
Jager girls, because I was the
Jagermeister emcee, to try and
distract them so they could at
least look at eye candy and so
they don’t throw crap at me,”
Florentine cracked.
Currently working on mate-
rial for a new comedy album
to be released by Metal Blade
Records, Florentine said he is
“really psyched” to perform in
the area again after several
years away and experience the
freedom to say and do whatev-
er he pleases.
“I love doing the stand-up.
I’ll always be doing that be-
cause I’m my own boss up
there and I can do whatever I
want. I can basically go to
work drunk wearing an AC/
DC shirt. I’ve always wanted
that freedom,” he said.

Over thelast
few years, mo-
vie audiences
have come ac-
customed to
seeing super-
heroes on the
big screen every summer. As
their success has grown, so has
the amount of comic book-in-
spired films, whether they be di-
rect adaptations or direct influ-
ences of the genre.
There are so many now that
the summer just can’t holdthem
all, and this year in particular,
we’ll be seeing men in tights all
year round.
Unfortunately, 2011 started
with the disappointing “Green
Hornet,” a comical take on the
hero that was neither comical
nor heroic.
With “Thor,” “X-Men: First
Class,” “Green Lantern,” and
“Captain America: The First
Avenger” eager to redeem Seth
Rogan’s stinker, it may be easy
formoviegoerstomissaquiet lit-
tle indie filmcalled “Super” that
was recently released in select
theaters and on cable on-de-
mand. For those who can’t wait
forthenextgoodversusevil epic,
Icanassureyouthatthelow-bud-
get “Super” is neither quiet nor
little, andthat’s a goodthing.
Starring the last guy you’d ex-
pect to see bounding aroundina
bright red costume, “Super” is
the story of Frank D’Arbo, an av-
erage guy aptly played by Rainn
Wilson who admits right away
that the only perfect moments
he ever had were marrying his
wife and helping a police officer
locateacriminal bypointinghim
inthe right direction.
Whenheloseshiswifetoanar-
rogant drug dealer, it’s only nat-
ural that heturns totheonlyoth-
er thing that made himhappy to
save her – fighting crime.
Asif heneededanymoremoti-
vationthanthat, heisdivinelyin-
spired(at least hebelievesso)by
a bizarre holy vision brought on
by watching a cheesy Christian-
themedsuperherofight thedevil
onTV.
Calling himself the Crimson
Bolt andwearinga costume that
amusingly bears a logo with his
own mask on it, he tackles petty
crime with a monkey wrench,
working his way up to the evil
Jacques while shouting, “Shut
up, crime!” While this may all
sound hilarious, or just plain
dumb if it isn’t your cup of tea,
don’t worry –it gets serious real-
ly quickly.
The beatdowns he delivers
withhis weaponof choice are ac-
tually quite brutal, and we dis-
cover that the reason his wife
was so easily led astray was be-
cause she was a former drug ad-
dict. Frankisclearlymentallyun-
stable, but heshifts fromcrazyin
a funny way tocrazy ina disturb-
ingway dependingonthe scene.
Whenhemeets Libby, acomic
book geek who enthusiastically
becomes his sidekick, Boltie, he
finds that becoming a superhero
is a fantasy for her in more ways
thanone.
In an unlikely cross between
“Juno”and“Kick-Ass,”themovie
blends those awkward, self-
aware characters frompractical-
ly every indie film you’ve ever
seenwiththe harshconsequenc-
es of what costumedvigilantism
wouldprobably be like inreality.
Like “Kick-Ass,” it admits that
you’d have to be pretty out there
to run around in tights thinking
you could save the world, but
“Super” takes the insanity up a
notchbybeingevenmoreunpre-
dictable.
Just whenyouthinkthefilmis
going to settle into the sensibili-
ties laid out by its predecessors
in the genre, it throws you for a
loop with a moment of violence
or a strange plot twist. The char-
acters, though, are where the re-
al madnesslies, butIwon’truinit

“W
ater for Elephants” is partly a
sawdust love story, partly a
survival story. It opens with
anoldman’s reminiscence, as Jacob Jankow-
ski (Hal Holbrook) tells a young circus hand
about his own Depression-era adventures
under the big top.
He didn’t join the show out of any roman-
tic impulses about carnival life. The well-
planned veterinary career he expected was
torpedoed by a family tragedy.
And the first train he could hop just hap-
pened to be carrying roustabouts, a menag-
erie, a gorgeous trick rider, Marlena (Reese
Witherspoon), and her possessive husband,
the circus’s owner and ringmaster, August
(Christoph Waltz). That’s where the ro-
mance enters. And the survival drama, too.
Twentysomething Jacob
(Robert Pattinson, looking
much nicer tanned and smil-
ing than he does in the “Twi-
light” series) gets a crash
course in circus etiquette.
The workers hate the per-
formers, the train doesn’t
slow down when deadbeats
get tossed off, the coochie
dancers like to tease virginal
lads andthe animals produce
staggering quantities of ma-
nure. As to the age-old com-
mandment KeepYour Hands
off the Boss’ Wife, he is re-
spectful. At least initially.
A handsome, expensive-
looking adaptation of Sara
Gruen’s 2006 bestseller,
“Water for Elephants” bal-
ances the colorful glitz of a
three-ring spectacle with
the atmospheric realism
that a rich drama demands.
Witherspoon, doing her
best work since her Oscar-
winning“WalktheLine,” is a
decent, dutiful wife strug-
gling with her feelings for
Pattinson’s kind, hunky ani-
mal-lover. Waltz gives his
role surprising depth.
He’s a commanding per-
sonality, shading into cruel-
ty, but you don’t want to
poke his eyes out. He can be
both ruthless and kind, and
when he acts out violently
he’s contrite.
But some infractions can’t
be excused, and Marlena
and Jacob find themselves
dancing a very precarious
tightropeduet of suppressed
desire. Their animal attrac-
tion eventually pours out
with catastrophic results.
Witherspoon’s costumer
did a great job fitting her
with theatrical spotlight at-
tire and sleek Jean Harlow
gowns for romantic nights
on the town.
Pattinson seems to im-
prove as the movie goes
along, over-indicating at
first but gradually relaxing
into his naive, awkward
character. And the endlessly
entertaining Waltz moves
beyond his silky-monster
thing to create a character
who deserves admiration
and pity, as well as scorn.
Even if your circus taste
runs more to Soleil than
Ringling, there’s a lot here to
like.

arth Day becomes Mother’s
Day in “African Cats,” a
magnificent new wildlife
documentary from Disneynature.
It’s an engrossing and often-mov-
ing film built around the fierce
protect-my-young instincts of a li-
oness and a female cheetah strug-
gling against the odds on the Ke-
nyan Masai Mara savanna.
Almost every shot is a postcard-
perfect African vista, and every
animal is shown in majestic close-
up — lions, cheetahs, hyenas,
aardvarks and even the homely
wildebeest, their snouts covered
in flies.
And yes, almost every situation
and story thread duplicates what
National Geographic did with its
March documentary, “The Last
Lions.” But it’s not a put-down of
the darker and more straightfor-
ward “Last Lions” to suggest
“Cats” is to “Lions” what poetry is
to prose.
Music, image and narration
combine in the Disney filmto pre-
sent life and death, up close (and
yet almost bloodless), capturing a
world where man isn’t yet the big-
gest threat; other lions and every-
body’s favorite monster, the croc-
odiles, are.
Jackson’s enthusiastic narra-
tion, even managing the odd joke,
the splendid images and especial-
ly the wonderful sound — chee-
tahcalls, gruntingaardvarks wres-
tling, lions trying to muster up
their most menacing roar —
makes “the Disney version” of the
hard life both educational and ter-
rific, kid-friendly entertainment.

I will, however, giveduecred-
it to the absolutely awesome
casting. Wilson, knowntomost
as lovable dweeb Dwight
Schrute from NBC’s “The Of-
fice,” shows us the darker side
of nerdominthisrole, andEllen
Page, becoming better known
nowforherseriousroles, jumps
in headfirst as the sadistic Lib-
by.
I really couldn’t take my eyes
off of either the entire time, but
Page stole every scene by re-
vealing what’s underneath the
cuteyounggirl demeanorinthe
most over-the-top way possi-
ble, but that isn’t a criticism. It
wasablast toseethewholecast
just let loose and revel in this
quirky and erratic script, in-
cludingsurprises likeKevinBa-
con as the villain and fan-favor-
ite Nathan Fillion as The Holy
Avenger.
LivTylerisdecent inherplot-
device role as Sarah, Frank’s
wife, but random appearances
by underrated actors like Mi-
chael Rooker, Sean Gunn, and
Andre Royo made me wonder
whowasgoingtopopupnext in
each scene. The eclectic cast
makes “Super” work, although
they’re helped along by the
black comedy andoddimagery
embeddedinthe story.
Writer/director James
Gunn, who brought us 2006’s
monster movie throwback
“Slither,” has demonstrated
once again how well our favor-
itegenres canmergetogether if
handledcorrectly.
Withnocomictostaytrueto,
the movie is free to play with
your expectations, and while it
resembles movies like “Kick-
Ass” that we’ve seen before, it
definitely contains many of its
ownoriginal ideas.
In the same way that indie
films try to capture howpeople
really act as opposed to the ide-
alized black-and-white charac-
ters that Hollywood perpetu-
ates and recycles again and
again, “Super” utilizes this qua-
si-realisticaesthetictoexamine
the superhero genre. It doesn’t
followthe conventions familiar
to mainstreammovie storytell-
ing, and it doesn’t end how
those films endeither.
It leaves you puzzled, it leav-
es you thinking, and it doesn’t
leave your head for the rest of
the week.
Compared to most popcorn
flicks, which is frankly what
most superherofilms are, that’s
quite the feat for the pudgy
CrimsonBolt.
Let’s hope other indie film-
makers take notice, because
Hollywoodcertainly won’t.

While offering a ’Shut up’ to

viewers expectations as the
film mixes the superhero and
independent film genres.
know when they taste my
steaks that I do it right,” says
Salerno. “I go through a lot to
make sure these steaks are
authentic. It’s easy to slap the
word “Philly” in front of
cheesesteak, but the taste is
the only way to authenticate
the Philadelphia style.”
As for me, I feel confident
that I have eaten enough of
them to be classified an expert
in cheesesteaks.
I am a big fan and I’ve been
to all the places in Philadel-
phia. The first steak I had was
at Pat’s. I remember my dad
and I were hungry before a
Phillies game and we went to
Pat’s.
Since then, any time my wife
and I pass through Philadel-
phia, we stop at either Pat’s or
Tony Luke’s. I couldn’t tell you
which I prefer, each have their
own unique taste.
Lucky for me, Cosmo’s is
right around the corner from
our office here on Wyoming
Avenue.
I was thrilled after eating at
Cosmo’s. It’s also nice when the
owner stops by to personally
ask you how the food was. It
says a great deal about how
important your business is to
them.
I must have heard Cosmo
Salerno ask 20 times, to all
different customers, “How was
everything?”
Well, when Salerno asked
me, I all but mimicked the guy
who proclaimed it was the best
damn steak he had ever had. I
explained to Salerno that I had
been to all the Philadelphia
shops, and that couldn’t re-
member ever having eaten a
better cheesesteak.
You don’t have to take the
drive to Philadelphia to have
the best cheesesteak anymore.
Cosmo’s takes the cake,
hands down.

cally and nationally for its
unique wine flavors. This year,
the winery took home a gold
medal in the Finger Lakes Inter-
national Wine Competition for
its watermelon wine and a
bronze medal for its raspberry
açai wine. Ferrone has even
made tomato andgarlic flavored
wines.
“What I like to do is come up
with something unique and cre-
ative besides what we already
have,” hesaid. “Youdon’t gointo
a state store and buy watermel-
on flavored wine. Sangria is
pretty much everywhere, but I
figured we’d give our twist to it
and see what happens.”
Another thing that sets the
Ferrone Family Winery apart
fromother, larger wineries is the
fact that everything is done in-
house.
“We are a small winery. We do
everything by hand, even apply-
ing the labels to the bottles and
carrying the cases back and
forth from the truck,” Ferrone
said. “It is homemade wine at
state store quality. It isn’t the
old-fashioned ‘keep-it-cold-and-
drink-it-fast’ kind of wine. It is a
good quality.”
Besides his best-selling and
award-winning watermelon,
black currant, and pomegranate
wines, Ferrone offers more than
80 different styles of wine from
all over the world. He also sells
beer- and winemaking essen-
tials in his store and recently
started offering wine making
classes along with customlabel-
ing.
For wine purists, Ferrone also
makes andsells more traditional
flavors, including chardonnay
and merlot.
“I don’t call the chardonnay,
merlot, and pinot grigio stan-
dardwines, but that is what they
are,” he said. “If you go to a res-
taurant, you see the chardonnay
or the merlot on the menu. You
don’t see watermelon on a me-
nu. My concept is that if you
start getting them in the restau-
rants, people will be curious.”
Overall, Ferrone urges people
totryasampleof oneof his more
exotically-flavored wines and
even welcomes input from his
customers.
“I like different. Different is
good,” he said. “I enjoy talking
to the customers and hearing
their stories. I alsowant toknow
what kind of flavors they are
looking for or would like to try.
New ideas and concepts for
wine are always welcome here.”

LOCAL COLLEGE SPORTS RECAP
Pacers, Defenders
undefeated in
men’s tennis
A father’s
influence
has been
responsible
for many
lives spent enjoying –
and careers spent work-
ing in – sports.
A conversation with
P.J. Carlesimo about his
early years in sports,
extends from the influ-
ence of his father, Peter
Carlesimo, to the input
of the many men who
helped shape his life by
giving him a positive
impression of coaching.
Perhaps that appreciation
for the other coaches he
met early in his life is what
makes P.J. Carlesimo so
proud of the impact his fa-
ther had on the University
of Scranton program.
That dedication to Royals
athletics will be remembered
May 6 when Peter Carlesi-
mo, who died in 2003, is
honored in a dinner at the
Byron Recreation Complex,
one of the many impressive
athletic facilities the uni-
versity now boasts.
“I remember how much
the campus has changed
over the years,” P.J. said.
“For him to be part of a
critical time in the growth
of the university when he
was always scraping for
fields, he would just be so
proud – and he was before
he passed away.”
As director of athletics
from 1953 to 1968, Peter
Carlesimo was part of mak-
ing sure sports had a promi-
nent place on a campus that
has enjoyed some of the
finest moments NCAA Divi-
sion III competition has to
offer. That will be part of
the message P.J. will try to
share when he delivers the
keynote address at the din-
ner.
“For people who didn’t get
to meet and know him,
they’ll get to see people
who grew up in academics
and athletics and look back
and hear about early ath-
letes at the university and
the sacrifices they made,”
P.J. said. “It was a challenge
for them how tough it was
to be an athlete at the Uni-
versity of Scranton.
“Now, you see how far it
has come.”
P.J. said his father’s influ-
ence extended beyond ath-
letics.
“For a lot of people, he
was one of the faces of, if
not the face of the universi-
ty,” he said.
That was particularly true
on the national athletic level
where Peter Carlesimo kept
active on NCAA committees
before eventually moving on
to become athletics director
at Fordham University and
the executive director who
kept the NIT relevant in the
college basketball world in
an era when the NCAA
Tournament was growing
into the March Madness it
has become.
When P.J. travels around
the National Basketball As-
sociation, currently as assist-
ant coach with the Toronto
Raptors, he understands how
far Peter Carlesimo’s reach
extended.
“One of the good things
about the NBA and traveling
to 29 cities is that very sel-
dom does a week go by
when I don’t run into some-
one from Scranton who
knew us or who knew my
Dad,” P.J. said.
That is what will bring
P.J., his nine siblings, and
other family members back
to Scranton for the cele-
bration. P.J., a Scranton
Prep graduate who was a
sophomore athlete at Ford-
ham when the family moved
to New Jersey, said that he
and his older siblings will
always consider Scranton
their home. Their mother,
the former Lucy Rogan, is
from Olyphant, and may
make the trip back as well.
P.J., 61, has now spent 40
years of his life as a basket-
ball coach. His career has
taken him to an NCAA
championship game as Seton
Hall’s head coach to stints
as head coach of three NBA
teams, assistant coach of the
NBA champion San Antonio
University right to honor
Carlesimo’s contributions

Stephen Arcure
missed the first 19
games of the sea-
son with an injury
but the junior from Clarks Summit (Scran-
ton Prep) is back in action with the Wil-
liam & Mary baseball team.
Arcure, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound outfielder,
has played in 19 games and started 15 for
the Tribe since returning and is hitting .281
(18-for-64) with five doubles, four RBI and
10 runs scored.
“Stephen is finally starting to get caught up to
game speed,” coach Frank Leoni said. “We had
high expectations for him coming into the sea-
son.”
After a so-so freshman season (.238 average in
130 plate appearances), Arcure came into his own
last season as a sophomore. He led the team in
hitting (.339) with 15 doubles and 41 RBI. He also
led the Tribe in stolen bases with 12 and had 18
multi-hit games and nine multi-RBI games. He
was named to the Colonial Athletic Association
second team.
Last season, he went errorless in 78 chances in
the outfield. Thus far this season, he hasn’t made
an error in 20 chances.
Prior to going to William & Mary, Arcure was a
two-time Lackawanna League MVP and a four-
time league first-team All-Star. For his career at
Scranton Prep, he averaged .423 with a .523 on-
base percentage. He also won 20 games as a pitch-
er, including an 8-1 mark with two saves and a
1.70 earned run average as a senior.
HIGGINS DOING THE JOB
Senior Brad Higgins (Lackawanna Trail) has a
3-1 record and a 2.61 earned run average as a start-
er for the Keystone baseball team.
The 6-foot, 190-pound right-hander has started
six games and in 31.0 innings, he’s given up 24
hits and 13 runs, nine earned. He’s walked 12 and
struck out 30.
Higgins had his best game early in the season in
Winter Haven, Fla. He pitched six innings of one-

nine strikeouts in a 3-0 triumph
over Messiah.
“Brad has developed into a
solid starting pitcher for us this
year,” veteran coach Jamie
Shevchik said. “He has been
consistently throwing strikes
and competing at a high level.”
Higgins was mainly a relief
pitcher with a couple of spot
starts his first three seasons
with the Giants.
HENKELMAN A SAILOR
Gregory Henkelman has
become one of the key skippers
for the Johnson &
Wales sailing
team, which com-
petes out of Provi-
dence, R.I.
Sophomore
Henkelman
(Abington
Heights) recently
finished 10th in
the No. 3 race at
the Southern Se-
ries Two out of
Newport. Prior to
that, he and his
partner finished
11th in the Series
Two race, also out
of Newport.
“Greg started
his sailing career
here in his fresh-
man year with very limited
prior experience,” coach Alan
Penney said. “As a sophomore,
he has become one of the lead-
ers on the team as well as a
regatta-ready skipper.”
Henkelman, with fellow
sophomore Emily Greagori of
Warminster making up his
crew, did a solid job this spring
finishing in the top half of the
fleet in both regattas.
“Greg plans to sharpen his
skills over the summer and
return in September and make
a big impact on the New En-
gland sailing circuit,” Penney
said.
COGNETTI HELPING
WILDCATS
Freshman Anne Cognetti
(Scranton Prep) competed in
both singles and doubles with
the Villanova women’s tennis
team last fall and this spring.
Cognetti won the No. 6 sin-
gles in a 4-3 victory over St.
Joseph’s, the No. 5 singles in a
7-0 triumph over St. Peter’s,
the No. 3 doubles in a 4-3 victo-
ry over Loyola University Ma-
ryland, and the No. 5 singles
and the No. 3 singles in a 6-1
triumph over La Salle.
“Through her hard work and
determination, Annie has made
great strides, particularly in
her singles play,” coach Steven
Reiniger said. “At first she
struggled against most of her
teammates, and it seemed like
she needed a lot of work.”
This spring, she saw action
anywhere from four to six in
singles and with the third dou-
bles.
“That’s a huge turnaround
from the beginning of fall when
she was nowhere
near playing with
the top six,” Rein-
iger said. “She
continues to im-
prove due to her
positive attitude
and tremendous
work ethic.”
MARTIN SOLID
FROSH
Freshman Britt-
ney Martin
(Abington
Heights) has
quickly become a
key performer for
the Seton Hill
women’s track
team.
Martin recently
won the 800 meter dash and
helped the 4x400 relay finish
second in the Washington &
Jefferson Invitational. Her 800
time was 2:20.72 and the relay
time was 4:12.13.
In the recent Bernie Benson
Memorial at Robert Morris,
she finished second in the 800
with an improved time of
2:19.81, and helped the 4x400
finish first in an improved time
of 4:04.24.
“Brittney has been working
hard all season and has been
one of our most consistent
freshmen,” coach Tim Creamer
said. “She is ranked in the top
three in both the 800 and 1500
in our conference as well as
with the 4x400 relay team.”
Seton Hill will compete in
the West Virginia Intercolle-
giate Athletic Conference
Championships next weekend

touchdown when the Blue defeat-
ed the White, 10-0, the rain-short-
ened Penn State Blue-White
Game April 16 at Beaver Stadium.
When it was over, Penn State
coach Joe Paterno said he had not
yet chosen a starting quarterback,
but he was “99 percent sure” it
would be either McGloin or Rob
Bolden. Bolden started early and
McGloin late in the 2010 season.
McGloin threwa17-yard touch-
down pass to Brandon Moseby-
Felder. He finished 5-for-10 for 109
yards and was the most effective
quarterback in the game, which
was stopped early in the second
half.
Bolden went 0-for-5 with an
interception; Kevin Newsome was
3-for-7 for 22 yards; and Paul
Jones was 0-for-1.

SPORTS BRIEFS
Spurs and assistant coach
with Team USA, including
the original “Dream Team.”
It would not have hap-
pened for P.J. without his
days in Little League base-
ball, junior football and
playing basketball at the
Boys’ Club and in Catholic
school programs or without
his time traveling with the
university’s teams, whether
as a ball boy, bat boy or
simply a son supporting his
father’s passion.
“Growing up in that envi-
ronment, I had a very posi-
tive impression of coach-
ing,” P.J. said. “I played for
guys who I thought were
really good men and really
good teachers.”
The only part of the ca-
reer choice that might have
surprised a young P.J.is
that the coaching path did
not lead him into football.
One of Peter Carlesimo’s
good friends, dating back
to their days as teammates
on Fordham’s famous Seven
Blocks of Granite offensive
line, was Vince Lombardi,
the game’s greatest coach.
When P.J. and Peter had
time to sit down and talk
sports, it was often over
the old reel-to-reel film
coaches used to watch of
their football teams.
“I remember watching
plays and asking ques-
tions,” said P.J., who played
football at Fordham as a
senior despite having at-
tended Scranton Prep at a
time when the school did
not offer the sport. “He’d
make corrections here and
there.
“I always respected coach-
es because of him and his
interactions with players.”
On May 6, the entire
University of Scranton com-
munity will get a chance to
show respect for one of its
coaching greats.

Sarah Gronsky and Elisia
Cadman led Abington
Heights to sweeps in the 400-
meter dash and 300-meter
hurdles Wednesday after-
noon, giving the Lady Comets
the boost they needed to get
past Valley View, 83-67, in a
meeting of Lackawanna Track
Conference Division 1 unbea-
tens.
The victory, their 29th
straight, gives the Lady
Comets the upperhand to-
ward a likely fifth straight di-
vision title.
Abington Heights out-
scored Valley View, 34-2, in
the four individual track
events immediately before
and after the Cougars’ only re-
lay win in the 400.
Teams receive five points
for first place, three for sec-
ond and one for third. Abing-
ton Heights got all nine from
the 400 and 300 hurdles and
took first and second place for
eight of the points in the 1600
and 800.
Stephanie Lalos got the de-
cisive stretch started and
helped finish it.
Lalos, who had already an-
chored the winning 3200 re-
lay, won the 1600, ahead of
teammate Taylor Ross. She
finished second behind Erin
Jaeger, another 3200 relay
team member, in the 800.
Gronsky, Missy Burke and
Jess McMinn went 1-2-3 in the
400 before Valley View broke
up the rush with its relay win.
Cadman, Isabella Clauss
and Jessica Kurey then went
1-2-3 in the 300 hurdles.
Missy Burke also won the
triple jump and was part of
the winning 1600 relay team
with Gronsky, Clauss and
Cadman.
Valley View was coming off
a boys’ and girls’ champion-
ship sweep of last weekend’s
Icebreaker Relays at Wallen-
paupack.
Division 3’s unbeaten co-
leaders also went head-to-
head Wednesday.
Elk Lake emerged with sole
possession of the division
lead after a 105-44 romp over
Mid Valley.
Holy Cross and Western
Wayne remain tied for the Di-

T
hanks to something that happened three years
ago, hunters will have increased opportunity to
harvest a trophy-size gobbler this season.
The spring gobbler season runs from April 30 to May
31 and Pennsylvania Game Commission officials said
hunters should find an abundance of mature gobblers in
the 2- and 3-year-old range due to excellent spring repro-
duction in 2008 and 2009 in many parts of the state.
As a result, PGC wild turkey
biologist Mary Jo Casalena ex-
pects this spring’s harvest to
top 40,000 birds for the third
consecutive year.
“The reason for the optimis-
tic outlook is due to the excel-
lent summer reproduction in
2008 and 2009, which has pro-
vided for a higher proportion
of adult (2- and3-year-old) gob-
blers in the population,” Casa-
lena said.
Gobbler hunting prospects
are strong in the northeast,
particularly in Wildlife Man-
agement Units 4C and 4E,
whichbothmaintaintwoof the
highest spring harvest densi-
ties in the state.
PGCbiologist KevinWenner
said both of those WMUs have
been gobbler hunting hotspots
for several years, particularly
4C.
“It has a good mix of forest
and agricultural land, which
gives turkeys food sources and
cover. It’s a good overall scena-
rio,” Wenner said.
With plenty of mature gob-
blers in the woods this season,
hunters shouldn’t have a prob-
lem hearing plenty of gob-
bling. Wenner said he’s been
hearing birds every morning
for the last three weeks.
But that doesn’t mean that
hunting a wary gobbler will be
any easier. With a week left be-
fore the season opener next
Saturday, Casalena encour-
aged hunters to start scouting
potential hunting areas to pin-
point a mature bird.
“Scouting can improve hun-
ters’ chances, especially if they
line up multiple locations for
the spring season,” Casalena
said. “Prior to the season, how-
ever, hunters should consider
not using turkey calls to locate
gobblers, because it will edu-
cate birds andcause themtobe
less inclined to respond to the
early-morning calls of in-sea-
son hunters.”
Wenner said the best scout-
ingmethodis tolistenfor birds
gobbling in the morning or
early evening before they
roost. During the late morning
and early afternoon, he said,
it’s a good idea to watch fields
for strutting gobblers trying to
attract hens.
While there might be more
mature gobblers in the woods
this season, hunters will also
have more time topursue them
thanks to a change in hunting
hours.
Under the change, legal
hunting hours from the open-
ing day of the spring gobbler
seasonthroughthe thirdSatur-
day (April 30-May 14) will re-
tain the current one-half hour
before sunrise until noon time
frame. However, the remain-
der of the season (May 16-31)
will be expanded to run all day,
from one-half hour before sun-
rise until one-half hour after
sunset.
“Although all-day hunting
will increase disturbance of
nesting hens, the impact will
be minimal because all-day
hours will only cover the last

The Scranton Knights had
some adjustments to make as
they opened defense of their
Lackawanna League Division 1
baseball title.
Tanner Schmidt has provided
the answer to two of the team’s
biggest questions, putting himself
in the middle of the only unbea-
ten start in the entire league.
Schmidt was at it again Mon-
day when the Knights outscored
West Scranton, 12-10, in a meet-
ing of 4-0 teams to determine
sole possession of the Division 1
lead.
A total of five teams entered
the week with unbeaten records,
but only the Knights still stand
tall after West Scranton in Divi-
sion 1, Old Forge and Riverside in
Division 2 and Blue Ridge in Di-
vision 3 suffered their first de-
feats.
“Being undefeated feels great,”
senior Tim Fisch said. “We feel
like we’re in a good position right
now.”
Landing in a good position has
not been easy for the Knights,
who have won all their games by
three runs or less behind an over-
powering top third of the batting
order and a rebuilt pitching staff
that has done just enough.
Schmidt, a junior pitcher/third
baseman, has been right in the
middle of both. After playing on
the junior varsity and seeing lim-
ited varsity time last season, he
has joined top returnees Fisch,
Joe McCarthy and Kyle Booth in
leading the way for the Knights.

NORFOLK, Va. — It was a famil-
iar feeling for Nick Petersen.
During Friday’s Game Five play-
off matchup between the Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton Penguins and
Norfolk Admirals, Petersen scored
two first-period, power-play goals
– the first playoff tallies of his
American Hockey League career –
to lead the Penguins to a pivotal
2-1 win.
The Penguins swept all three
games in Norfolk to carry a 3-2 se-
ries lead back to Wilkes-Barre for
Saturday’s Game Six. The road
wins gave the Penguins two chanc-
es to clinch the first-round Calder
Cup series.
For Petersen, putting up playoff
points is nothing new. During the
last three seasons in juniors, Peter-
sen totaled 56 points in 47 playoff
games. He now has two goals in
five AHL playoff games.

“I like to be a star player and
put up big goals,” Petersen
said. “I was happy to step up.”
Early on, there was a hint
that Petersen could be in for a
big night. Six minutes into
the game, a pass from Keven
Veilleux sprung Petersen on a
breakaway and his five-hole
attempt almost got through
the pads of Norfolk goalten-
der Dustin Tokarski.
On the next shift, two Nor-
folk penalties resulted in a
Penguins 5-on-3 power play
for 1:15. The Penguins struck
quickly when Brett Sterling
sent a pass through the crease
to Petersen at the far post for
the easy tip-in.
With less than two minutes
remaining in the first period,
the Penguins went on their
second power play and Peter-
sen converted on a wrap-
around attempt after he
picked up a loose puck from a
Sterling shot.
That made it 2-0 and the
Penguins were in control with
two periods to play.
“We wanted to come out
and put it to them tonight,”
Petersen said.
Despite welcoming star
players Blair Jones, Mattias
Ritola and Mike Angelidis
back to the lineup, the Admi-
rals power play was shut
down by the Penguins penalty
kill for most of the night. With
Brad Thiessen playing like a
wall in net and the defense
blocking shots, the Penguins
killed off the first five Admiral
power plays, including four in
the first two periods.
“Everyone stepped up and
played well,” coach John
Hynes said. “We didn’t give up
any big plays, which was im-
portant. That’s a key when
you play against a great offen-
sive team.”
The Admirals did manage
to find the back of the net on
their sixth power play of the
night, when Norfolk defense-
man Mark Barberio blasted a
one-timer from the point at
9:45 of the third period to cut
the Penguins’ lead to 2-1.
Thiessen finished with 23
saves.

“He’s our number-one pitch-
er now,” Scranton coach Jamie
Higgins said of Schmidt, who
worked the final inning to save
Monday’s win. “He has two
wins and the save.
“He throws strikes.”
And, he handles them at the
plate.
Schmidt has moved from
seventh to second in the bat-
ting order, fitting in between
Fisch and McCarthy. All three
are batting well over .400 to
rank just behind Booth’s team-
leading .500 average.
“Tanner’s kind of pulling
double duty for us,” Higgins
said. “He moved up to the two-
hole and he’s doing well in that
spot making contact.”
The top third of the lineup
was at its best against West
Scranton.
Fisch and Schmidt got it
started with three hits and
three runs each. McCarthy fol-
lowed with a single, double
and three RBI.
McCarthy, already leading
the team in runs, moved into a
tie with Booth for the team
lead in RBI.
Higgins has been happy
with the way McCarthy, per-
haps the league’s most feared
power hitter, has handled be-
ing the focal point of most op-
ponents’ scouting reports.
“It’s funny to watch when
Joe comes up howmuch differ-
ent kids deal with him,” Hig-
gins said. “He has a reputation
and kids are real careful. He
knows it. He’s doing a good job
seeing some pitches and using
all fields.”
Higgins said that was evi-
dent in the first inning against
West Scranton when McCar-
thy waited for his chance to
drive in the game’s first two
runs.
“West pitched him away and
pitched him away,” Higgins
said. “He got two strikes
against him, adjusted, went
the other way and doubled
down the line for two runs.”
Fisch, who has undergone
his own lineup adjustment this
season by moving from second
base to the outfield, gets the
offense started from the lead-
off spot. He’s used to igniting
the attack after running the
point on Scranton’s two
straight championship basket-
ball teams.
“He’s a nightmare on the
bases,” Higgins said. “He’s real
fast.”
That speed was the reason
Fisch was moved defensively.
He patrols center field when
McCarthy pitches and other-
wise spends most of his time in
left field.
The look is a little different,
but the Knights are still put-
ting together wins, something
they are doing more effectively
than any other team in the
league this season.

two weeks of the season,” said
the PGC’s Mary Jo Casalena.
Game Commissionwildturkey
biologist. “By then, hunting
pressure decreases and most
hens are in their later stages of
nest incubation, at which point
they are less likely to abandon
their nest if disturbed.
“We anticipate the many
benefits will far outweigh the
minor disturbance of hens, par-
ticularly the increased hunting
opportunity for all hunters,
such as youth and adults who
attend school or work during
themorningwhonowwill have
the option of a late afternoon
hunt.”
Casalena noted that the
Game Commission will moni-
tor the afternoon harvest in re-
lation to population trends and
age class of gobblers to gauge
the impact of all-day hunting.
Of the 49 states that conduct
turkey seasons, 34 have all-day
hunting for all or part of the
season, including Maryland,
Ohio and Virginia.
To further expand opportu-
nity, the board extended the
spring gobbler season through
May 31. This change was im-
plemented to provide addition-
al recreational huntingwithout
impacting the resource be-
cause disturbance of hens
would be minimal since most
hens would be in their later
stages of nest incubation, ac-
cording to the PGC.
