than 40 Ransom Township
residents packed the Board of
Supervisors meeting March 5.
Supervisor Dennis Maches-
ka read aloud a notice stating
that Falling Springs Water
Works, Inc. filed an applica-
tion for approval with the Sus-
quehanna River Basin Com-
mission for surface water with-
drawal of up to 800,000 gal-
lons of water per day from the
Falling Springs Reservoir for
use in the development of
natural gas wells in the Mar-
cellus Shale Region. Pa. State
Police Motor Carrier Enforce-
ment Supervisor Rion Stann
was in attendance at the re-
quest of the supervisors to
explain the current rules in
existence for heavy trucks
traveling local roads.
He talked about weight lim-
its on local roads and local
traffic exemptions. He covered
the benefits of the Township
conducting engineering and
traffic studies to watch for
excessive damage done to its
roads.He said once a compa-
nys trucks are determined to
be causing excessive damage,
the township can then require
them to enter into an excessive
maintenance agreement.
That means, Stann said,
Ransom Township will still
take care of all the regular
maintenance on those roads-

As of 12:01a.m. March 8,
text messaging while driving
is a primary offense accord-
ing to state law, carrying a
$50 fine.
APennsylvania Depart-
ment of Transportation press
release stated that the new
lawprohibits the use of an
Interactive Wireless Com-
munication Device (IWCD)
to send, read or write a text-
based message.
It defines an IWCDas a
wireless phone, personal
digital assistant, smartphone,
portable or mobile computer
or similar devices that can be
used for texting, instant
messaging, emailing or
browsing the internet, and a
text-based message as a text
message, instant message,
email or other written com-
munication composed or
received on an IWCD.
According to the release,
in 2010 distracted driving
played a role in almost
14,000 crashes in Pennsylva-
nia, with 68 people dying in
those crashes.
State Police Commissioner
Frank Noonan said in the
release, This is a serious
problemand we are hoping
that we can educate citizens
on the dangers of texting
while driving and prevent
future accidents.
As a father, Brandon Reed,
24, of Scranton, said he is in
favor of the newlaw. Any-
thing that can keep people
fromtexting while they drive
and crashing into my daugh-
ter because they want to send
an LOL to their friend, he
said, is a great idea. He said
he thinks talking on the
phone may be a little safer,
but its still a distraction, and
he wouldnt recommend it.
Monika Wojtynski, 23, of
Clarks Summit, said she feels
the lawwill make the roads
safer. She said shes ridden in
vehicles before with the
drivers steering with their
knees while texting with both
hands, and it made her feel
very unsafe.
I definitely think it affects
the ability of peoplehow
they drive and their aware-
ness while they drive, she
said.
Debbie Damico, 53, of
South Abington, said she is
completely against texting
while driving, as it affects the
quality of a persons driving.
She said she sees it happen-
ing all the time, especially
with young people.
Theyre young, she said.
They think they are above
the law.
Damico said she thinks
talking on the phone while
driving, however, isnt as
dangerous, especially with
the use of a wireless ear
piece.
Elizabeth Marturano, 44,
of South Abington, said she

AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER
As of 12:01 a.m. March 8, text messaging while driving is a primary offense according to state law,
carrying a $50 fine.
Blake Spanel, 23, of Clarks
Summit, said he thinks text-
ing while driving should
never be an option, as it
takes the drivers hands off
the wheel and focus off the
road. He said its just as
easy, but much safer, to
make a phone call.
Kelly McAndrew, 19, of Fac-
toryville, doesnt drive, but
said riding in a car while the
driver is texting makes her
nervous.

Dictionary.
D-I-C-T-I-O-N-A-R-Y.
Dictionary.
Noun. Abook containing a
selection of the words of a lan-
guage and their proper spellings,
pronunciations and meanings.
Example: Sukanya Roy read
through the entire dictionary
during summer break in prep-
aration for the spelling bee.
Roy, 14, of South Abington
Township, said it took her a few
months to finish reading the
dictionary, but even then her task
was not complete. As she moved
through the eighth grade at
Abington Heights Middle
School, Roy said when she came
home each day she would com-
plete her homework and then
study portions of the dictionary
with which she was not yet fa-
miliar. She also spent a lot of
time studying word origins and
patterns in languages.
Her hard work paid off, and
not only is she the 2009, 2010
and 2011winner of The Times
Leader/Scripps NEPARegional
Spelling Bee, but she also won
the Scripps National Spelling
Bee in 2011.
According to its website, the
National Spelling Bee was start-
ed in1925 as a collaboration of
nine different newspapers, and
its sponsorship was acquired in
1941by Scripps, a diverse media
company.
Its purpose, according to the
website, is to help students
improve their spelling, increase
their vocabularies, learn con-
cepts, and develop correct En-
glish usage that will help them
all their lives.
Roy said participating in the
bee helped her to growin many
different areas, such as avoiding
procrastination. As far as study-
ing goes, she said, it takes
dedication and hard work, two
attributes that go along with
doing well in any subject.
Shes found the things she
learned fromthe spelling bee
have also come in useful to her
as a freshman at Wyoming Sem-
inary in Kingston. She feels
better prepared for her French
class because of her language
studies in preparation for the
bee, and frequently recognizes
difficult words in other classes,
such as history and biology, that
she wouldnt have known the
meanings of, were it not for the
bee.
Roy said her favorite thing

Astaple, seasonal event
may not occur this year in the
Abingtons. The annual Easter
Party, sponsored by Girl Scout
Troop 260 in Newton Ran-
som, slated for March 31at the
Newton Recreational Center
will likely not be held this
year, according to event co-
chair Vickie Vargo.
It comes down to ambition,
time and money, said Vargo,
who has been involved
with the local Girl
Scouts for more
than a decade.
Vickie and
her hus-
band, Al,
have
chaired
the event
for the past
three years.
They explained
that the event is a large under-
taking, requiring a great deal
of funds and volunteers. Ac-
cording to the Vargos, the
party costs approximately
$900 to host each year. Nor-
mally, $200 would be donated
, while the troop would come
up with the rest on its own.
This year, there is a lack of
funding.Another problem

THE ABINGTON
JOURNAL
In1987 an idea became a reality. Two young women fromLackawanna County realized the need to help ease the burden of families with
seriously ill children, especially when hospitalized. It was then that Ellen Beechko and Regina Peters combined their thoughts and multiple
talents and laid the ground work to forma committee of local restaurateurs to participate in an evening of gourmet splendor, decorations and
music. Some 30 restaurants participated (with some remaining today) in the first Gourmet Gala at Montage Manor in Taylor. Thus, the
fundraiser to support the House that Love Built was born. Today volunteers are preparing for the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Gour-
met Gala. This years theme is Moulin Rouge with Carol Mueller (Chairman) and Carol Chisdak (Co-chairman) leading the way. Jennifer
Strackbein, Restaurant Chair, said that more than 50 restaurants will be preparing hors d oeuvres and delicacies, including an array of sweet
treats. Raffle Committee Chair, Sally Venesky, said the Basket Raffle will be ongoing throughout the event and winners will take themhome
that evening. Each basket is valued at $250. Decorations by John Mackey and music of Ken McGrawand Orchestra. Shown, the 25th Anni-
versary Gourmet Gala Committee meets to plan for the Ronald McDonald House of Scranton fundraising event. Seated, fromleft: Jan Brown,

WEDNESDAY, MARCH14, 2012 THE ABINGTON JOURNALCLARKS SUMMIT, PA WWW.THEABINGTONJOURNAL.COM PAGE 3A
The Abington Regional Wastewater Authority is getting
the ball rolling on improvements to the sewage treatment
plant.
The Authority manages sewage or wastewater treatment
for much of the Abington area.
According to the Authoritys website, the group collects
anything that goes down the drain in Clarks Green, Clarks
Summit or South Abington at the Abington Waste Water
Treatment Plant on Route 6 in the Notch.
There, impurities are removed and clean water is returned
to Leggetts Creek, which is the stream that runs through
South Abington Park. On an average day, 125,000 gallons of
clean water are produced every hour.
The Authority has purchased the land across the street
from the treatment plant, and the group is currently applying
for permits to begin construction on an expansion.
The plant expansion was designed for many reasons, but
the heart of the reason was the Abingtons overall, not South
Abington, not Clarks Summit, not Clarks Green, but the
Abingtons in general are having major infiltration prob-
lems, said Authority treasurer Gloria Lance of South
Abington.
Infiltration is excess water that flows into sewer pipes
from groundwater and storm water.
A majority of the areas underground collection system
was built as early as the 1930s, and as a result they are crum-
bling and this is creating leaks.
The groundwater is getting into the sewage system
through the leaks and causing the infiltration.
These leaks can increase the flow of liquid to the plant
from about 3 million gallons per day to almost 19 million
gallons per day. Thats 16 million gallons of once clean water
that now requires costly treatment.
Each municipality owns its own sewer pipes, and is re-
sponsible to fix and repair any leaks, but because everything
is underground, it can be difficult to figure out the location
of the leak.
The sewer plant is managed to handle waste, not infil-
trationit has some leeway to handle infiltration, said
Lance.
The plant expansion will allow the plant to begin handling
infiltration. This is one of the benefits of the expansion, but
its not the only reason the Authority decided to begin the
projected $34 million project.
The cracked pipes also forced the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP) to put a moratorium on new
sewer hookups in the Abingtons, which halted construction
in the area.
All of a sudden no buildingand workers start getting
affected, said Lance.
The moratorium and the infiltration inspired the Authority
to draft Act 537.
Act 537, which was approved by each municipality last
year, outlined every area of what needs to be done from
monitoring it, to how the cost will be managed.
The approval of Act 537 led the DEP to lift the moratori-
um.
The expansion will also help the area meet its Chesapeake
Bay Initiative state requirements.
The Chesapeake Bay Initiative requires sewage treatment
plants in the Chesapeake Bay watershed reduce the amount
of nitrogen and phosphorous they allow to be discharged
into the watershed.
Lance said that the Authority is hoping to begin construc-
tion next year and have expansion completed by 2015.

F
or Suzanne White Yeag-
er of St. Paul, Minn. and
her aunt, 92-year-old
Catherine (Kay) Hammerman
of Clarks Summit, amassing
their familys history has pro-
ven to be satisfying in many
ways. The two documented
their family members as origi-
nal settlers who arrived on the
Mayflower in1564 and uncov-
ered relatives with extraordin-
ary lives.
Following her retirement and
while living in Atlanta, Ga. in
2010, Yeager took on a genealo-
gy project her Aunt Christine
White Tyler, 1912-2006, a life-
long resident of Factoryville,
had begun years prior. Tyler
wrote letters, visited courthous-
es, made phone calls, read
books and uncovered anec-
dotal information through
family conversations, but could
not document birth, death,
marriage and other pertinent
facts. Yeagers work involved
documenting her aunts find-
ings and adding everyone
fromher grandparents down
through the youngest gener-
ation.
Its important to remember
that Aunt Christine did not have
the benefit of computers when
she was doing her research. She
spent many years doing her
research. I fully utilized my
computer, said Yeager.
Tyler was able to trace one
branch of the tree back to1564
to family members who made
their way to America on the
Mayflower. The Mayflower
passengers were the earliest
permanent European settlers in
NewEngland. One relative met
his future wife during the trip
and the couple was married in
1623 in Plymouth Colony.
Yeager discovered that her
maternal grandmother and
grandfather sailed to America
in1911with her uncle, who was
three months old. Yeager said,
What an incredible amount of
courage they must have had to
make that journey. Almost 300
years before that, relatives on
my fathers side made the same
voyage on The Mayflower,
leaving behind their families
and everything they knew.
She added, Time and time
again, I read about relatives on
both sides of the family who
led extraordinary lives, whether
it was crossing the Atlantic
Ocean in1620 or 1911, fighting
for freedomin the American
Revolution, putting their lives
on the line in the Civil War or
serving our country in WWII
and Vietnam. Having done this
research, I can see just how
special my family is.
Approximately15 years ago,
she (Yeager) completed another
family tree and wanted to up-
date that tree to include new
family members and also pro-
duce a chart that she could give
to everyone on the list. She had
help fromHammerman, who
shared stories of the familys
Welsh heritage, as well as her
parents journey fromSouth
Wales to America.
Hammerman said, I felt
badly when everybody else was
having family reunions and we
were not. I would say to my
mother as a child, Mom, why
cant we have a reunion? And
she would say, And have all of
your relatives come over from
Wales on boats just so you can
have a family reunion? I never
had a grandmother or knew
what a first cousin was like; I
could not go to an aunt or an
uncles home because they were
all thousands of miles away. I
think in many ways thats why it
produced very strong friend-
ships among the first gener-
ation, so they could have some-
one come to their house or they
could go to somebody elses
home
For Yeager, the most satis-
fying part of her genealogical
journey was reconnecting with
her many cousins, many of
whomshe hadnt talked to in
years. Because we (cousins)
live in different cities and see
each other only at weddings,
funerals, etc., I amhoping this
information will help them
connect on a more regular basis
and also let themknowthey
come froma very large family.
She described the eight
months she spent researching
and putting the remaining piec-
es of the puzzle together as
enjoyable, addictive and frus-
trating, but in the end, at the
completion of her project, she
had uncovered stories of in-
credible people who led ex-
traordinary lives.
One of the most important
lessons I have learned with this
project is that my ancestors
came to this country with huge
amounts of courage, determina-
tion, resilience and very little
else. Their legacy has been the
hundreds of people on both
sides of my family who have
lead very successful personal
and professional lives. Imsure
they dreamed and hoped that
their journeys would lead to
better lives for their children
and grandchildren, and great-
grandchildren. We owe thema
great deal of gratitude for mak-
ing those decisions to come to
America, said Yeager.

to assemble their familys journey through time.
The 11th Annual Purim Cele-
bration was hosted March 8 at the
Nichols Village Hotel by mem-
bers of the Jewish faith. Enter-
tainment was provided by glass-
harpist Jamey Turner.
Rabbi Benny Rapoport Director
of the Jewish Discovery Center in
Clarks Summit told the Abington
Journal in a previous interview,
The joy of Purim is like no other
day, with the traditions of drink-
ing wine and the dressing up.The
event featured parodies, skits and
live music.

CLARKS SUMMIT- Bor-
ough Council voted 6-0 to
approve Tower Cos land de-
velopment plan for a cell
phone tower that will be locat-
ed on a private property on
North State Street. The 150-
foot tower will be in the form
of a flagpole and will be able
to hold up to five carriers;
however the borough is con-
sidering having one antenna
available for use of the Emer-
gency Management Agency.
Council also voted 6-0 to
take the first step toward a
regional police force by sub-
mitting a letter of intent to the
Governors Center for Local
Government Services. Ac-
cording to Kehoe, Glenburn
Twp. and Newton Twp. have
shown interest in joining the
borough in a regionalized
police force. The other in-
terested parties must also
submit a letter of intent signed
at a public meeting to the
Center before a free feasibility
study can be conducted.
Borough president Gerrie
Carey, chair of the Finance
Committee, announced that
the committee is working
proactively on direction for
the sewer billing when the
boroughs contract ends in
October. Carey also an-
nounced the borough will
continue to provide the same
service for leaf pickup.
Councilperson Patty Lawler,
chair of the Grant Committee,
gave updates on several grants
the borough may receive.
According to Lawler, a
Community Development
Block Grant would go toward
financing new sidewalks on
Depot Street
An American Water grant
would target Hosfeld or Leg-
getts Creek. It would bring in
up to $9,000 to dredge, dee-
pen, clean, and beautify them
with rain gardens. According
to Lawler, the Shade Tree
Commission agreed to help
plant trees, the Laurel Garden
Club agreed to donate the
plants, and she will reach out
the Abington Lions Club for
volunteers.
A WREN (Water Resource
Education Network) grant is
specifically for watershed
protection.
If we get this grant, we can
do both creeks, Lawler said.
Another grant, valued at
more than $10,000, could be
used for a public interest pro-
ject, a community improve-
ment project, an economic
development project, roadway
improvements, or reasonable
administrative costs.
The tagline for Earth Day in
the borough is Clarks Sum-
mit Goes Green: Reduce,
reuse and recycle. As part of
Earth Day activities, Lawler
will lead a project: Pickup
Our Old Phone Books at
Clarks Summit Elementary
School where students will
collect old phone books to
recycle from April 1-17.The
winning class will receive a
$100 check for school suppli-
es, a commemorative T-shirt
and they will march in the
boroughs Memorial Day Pa-
rade.
Councilman David Jenkins
relayed a message from Fire
Chief Jake Hoinowski that
there will be no burning per-
mits handed out until further
notice due to the dry weather.
Council voted to accept
business owner Barry Ka-
plans request to prohibit park-
ing on the north side of Bar-
rett Street between the hours
of 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. April 28 as
part of an electronic recycling
event.
Kehoe announced that The
Refill Station, 213 S. State St.,
is willing to accept used toner
cartridges for recycling.

On March 29, businesses
across Pennsylvania will trade in
formalwear for T-shirts and
jeans to help promote colon
cancer awareness.
C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon Cancer
Awareness Saves Unlimited
Adult Lives) Day is a program
to raise awareness about colon
cancer in northeastern Penn-
sylvania and the importance of
screening and early detection.
The event is in memory of He-
len Phillips, a woman who
fought a courageous battle
against colon cancer and died in
the summer of 2002. C.A.S.U-
.A.L. Day takes place each year
at the end of March Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month. On
this day, participants dress C.A-
.S.U.A.L. while wearing a spe-
cially designed pin and/or cus-
tomT-shirt to promote aware-
ness about colon cancer. Partici-
pants pay $5 for a pin and/or $15
for a T-shirt with proceeds sup-
porting the colorectal cancer
community, healthcare profes-
sional education and outreach
efforts coordinated by the Can-
cer Institute.
Georgette Fetcho, along with
the staff of Abington Manor, in
South Abington Township, have
been involved with C.A.S.U-
.A.L. Day for the last seven
years, since past Administrator
Michael Moran starting work-
ing there. Morans mother is
Helen Phillips and his family
started the event.
According to Moran, the
programhas raised $570,000 in
the first eight years and the
Abington Manor has been a
major participant fromthe be-
ginning.
Fetcho has served as team
captain for several years and has
been pleased with the response
fromher co-workers.
They have been very recep-
tive to the event, she said.
They look forward to it every
year. The color of the T-shirt is
changed each year so everybody
gets excited to see what color it
will be.
Fetcho and the staff are happy
to help support an event that can
be potentially life saving.
The most rewarding part is
making everyone aware of early
detection of colorectal cancer,
she said. Thats the main reason
for the event. One-third of the
people who die fromcolon
cancer could have been saved if
they had gone earlier to be tested
and treated.
Jane Oswald, staff coordinator
for the Northeast Regional Can-
cer Institute, volunteered for the
position three years ago and is
totally devoted to the cause.
I really believe in the event
wholeheartedly, she said. Its a
great program.
According to Oswald, a staff
member usually holds the posi-
tion for two years, but she joked
that they would have to pry it
out of her hands.
Oswald has been thrilled with
howthe event has grown over
the past fewyears. Along with
an increase in the number of
teamcaptains, the scope of the
participants has really expanded.
This year, people fromas far as
Berks, Carbon and Montour
County have signed up.
The awareness is spreading
and its phenomenal, she said.
In addition to promoting can-
cer awareness, Oswald said she
believes there are other reasons
for companies to get involved
with the event.
Its fun and it promotes cam-
araderie amongst the team
members, she said. Some
businesses even put out chal-
lenges to employees in which
they get an award if they can
recruit friends or family mem-
bers.
Oswald also credited the cre-
ativity of businesses for keeping
their employees interested.
One business changes the
appearance of the T-shirt every
year, she said. People think of a
lot of different ways.
According to Oswald, there
are already190 teamcaptains
registered for this year with a few
weeks remaining.
We really hope to see a sea of
yellowon March 29, she said.

Since July, weve been eating
everything with wing sauce on
it, Fritch said with a laugh.
Weve been cooking stromboli
and shrimp and scallops and pot
stickers. Weve been trying it on
every recipe we could think of.
And even some you might not
think of.
Cosgrove raved about deviled
eggs with an extra bite, turkey
burgers and chicken meatballs,
and believe it or not a Hot
Mess martini made with a little
bit of her sauce.
Taste was important, Fritch
said, and she and Cosgrove
made sure each tier of the hot
sauce had the right amount of
flavor with the appropriate level
of heat.
The mild sauce doesnt have
a lot of heat, but it has that buf-
falo flavor. Ive found that when
you go out and have it at a res-
taurant, its all buttery, Fritch
said.
The pair also made sure the
bottles were unique. While each
label features a reproduction of
Greater Scranton Chamber of
Commerce President Austin
Burkes painting of the Electric
City sign as a means to also
promote Scranton, the different
flavors carry Cosgroves recipes
for hot wing dip, grilled chick-
SCRANTON- As part-own-
ers of Kellys Pub and Eatery in
South Scranton for the last 22
years, Peggy Cosgrove and
Kathleen Cosgrove Fritch have
seen their share of hot wings.
In a newbusiness venture
separate fromKellys, the sisters
have branched out and created a
hot wing sauce inspired by the
restaurant thats ready to use out
of the bottle.
We told the bottler that we
wanted the flavor of finished
wing sauce, said Fritch, 42, of
Waverly. When you go to the
grocery store, youre stuck with
Franks Red Hot and you have to
figure out howto make it.
Whether you prefer mild,
medium, or hot sauce, Peggys
Wing Sauce takes the guess-
work out of creating a spicy
supper or weekend treat with a
kick.
The first bottles were finished
Feb. 20 and delivered to all nine
locations of Gerritys Super-
markets on Feb. 24. The 7,200
bottles that retail for $4.98 each
were filled in Pennsylvania and
made using only products
grown in the state, Cosgrove, 41,
of Scrantons Green Ridge sec-
tion, and Fritch said.
APhiladelphia-area food
consultant helped guide the
sisters through the process, and
a launch event organized by
John Mackey, Cosgroves neigh-
bor, was held March 2 at the
Radisson Lackawanna Station
Hotel in Scranton.
Not just for wings
While the newhot sauce
mentions wings directly in the
products name, the sisters said
they hope consumers will be
adventurous with their appetites.
en, or grilled shrimp.
Additional recipes and an
online order formare available
at www.peggyswingsauce.com,
where Cosgrove said orders
fromas close as Archbald and
as far as California and Florida
have been placed.
Community support
Cosgrove said shes drawn
some additional inspiration for
the hot sauce fromstudents in
her family and consumer sci-
ence classes at Scranton High
School.
Theyve taught me howto
cook, she said. I have a very
diverse classroom, and theyve
exposed me to all of their hot
sauces and ethnic foods fromall
over the world.
She said students are exited
for Miss Coz to enter a new
realm, and its already a hit with
many of them.
The other day, they were
literally taking chips and pour-
ing it on and eating them, Cos-
grove said.
Colleagues in the district have
also congratulated her on the
newproduct after spotting Cos-
groves face on billboards
throughout the region.
Perseverance pays
Bottling a homemade recipe
for sale to the public isnt a new
idea. So many people talk about
putting their own sauces, soups,
and dips on supermarket
shelves, but fewreach this stage.
The difference, Cosgrove said,
is the perseverance she and
Fritch shared throughout the
process.
We took this on all on our
own, Cosgrove said. It wasnt
easy. Its a risk, but were willing
to take it and were excited
about it.

will have to pay for..
He answered several ques-
tions from residents regarding
the possible implications of
the Falling Springs request,
should it gain approval.
Solicitor Edmund J. Scac-
chitti, Esq. reminded residents
several times during the meet-
ing that there is not much to
go on at this time and nothing
is happening yet. What I
dont want to do is create a
hysteria in the township about
whats going to go on up
there, he said.
Also at the meeting, Bud
Stann, of Dark Region Road,
informed the supervisors of a
high pressure gas main which
crosses his property and goes
under the creek which runs
along the road. He said a 20-
to-25-foot-long section of that
main is exposed about three
feet above the water.
I had the gas people here
several times, he said, and
they werent concerned about
it. And the one comment the
one inspector made was, If it
blows, its only going to go
150 feet in the air. Well, my
neighbors front door is 150
feet off the creek.
Stann said the problem is
increased by a number of tree
stumps and other debris in the
creek that could float away
and get caught in the pipeline.
He said it keeps getting worse
and he doesnt know where to
take it from here.
Macheska told Stann,
What well do is write a
letter to UGI officially from
the township and see what that
doesif that doesnt do any-
thing then maybe we can try
another avenue.
Also mentioned was a letter
received from the Clarks
Summit Borough regarding
the possibility of forming a
local police force.
Another letter was read
aloud by Supervisor David
Bird from the Abington
Council Of Governments
thanking Macheska for his
services representing Ransom
Township for eight years. The
next Supervisors meeting will
be held April 2 at the Town-
ship Building, 2435 Hickory
Lane Clarks Summit at 7 p.m.

as another factor in canceling

least four people. After ad-
vertising for volunteers, the
Vargos said they did not re-
ceive any response.
Imtruly heartbroken, said
Vickie. I understand that the
community and especially the
children are missing out, and
Imvery sorry for that. We just
cant do it without the help.
The Vargos said that they
had received lots of positive
feedback since taking over the
event. Community members
seemed especially pleased that
this was an event made espe-
cially for younger children
who would often get tram-
pled at other, larger egg
hunts. Money raised fromthis

being able to host the Easter

Clarks Summit, Pa. MARCH 14 TO MARCH 20, 2012 50
After winning a share of the
District 2-4 Class AAA girls
swimming title, Abington
Heights high school prepares
for the state championships.
Abington Heights swimmer
Emma Gromelski raced in the
200 medley relay and the 200
free relay, both of which the
Lady Comets finished first at
districts.
I was happy with my per-
formance at districts, Gro-
melski said. I dropped time
and brought home some med-
als which really helped my
team.
Gromelski is among many
Abington Heights swimmers
who will race in the state
playoffs.
We train every day, both
physically and mentally, pre-
paring for states, Gromelski
said. The girls that have
already gone are trying to
help the younger girls prepare
for what they are up against.
After the two relay victo-
ries, Abington Heights held a
four-point advantage heading
into the final day of competi-
tion.
The Lady Comets trailed
Hazleton Area by eight points
with two events remaining in
the district championship
before Abington Heights
Sydney Gualtieri took first in
the 100 breaststroke. Gualtieri
recorded the only individual
victory for the Lady Comets
at districts.
I just knew I had to push
myself really hard because I
knew I had to do that so my
team would win, Gualtieri
said. That was what I trained
all season for and I was nerv-
ous, but I just had to put that
out of my mind and go per-
form the best I could.
In the final event of the
tournament, the Lady Come-
ts 400 free relay team of
Gromelski, Morgan Muller,
Rachel Smertz and Vanessa
Lempicky knotted Abington
Heights with Hazleton Area
at 279.
My team did absolutely
phenomenal, Gromelski said.
They really stepped up to the
plate and performed amazing-
ly. I honestly couldnt be
more proud.

trap two of their guards and
we were able to get a steal
and two points, Show said.
We were really struggling
to get buckets in the third
quarter. It was nice to get a
high percentage shot. On
the next possession, Patrick
(Calvey) was able to find
me and fortunately I was
able to make the shot.
Another move Bianchi
made was putting reserve
John Vassil on Northern
Lehighs Lucas Pierce, who
had scored 14 points in the
first quarter. Vassil played a
big role in holding Pierce
to just seven points over the
final three quarters while
Jason Bamford and T.J.
Murray were on the bench
due to foul trouble.
He did a tremendous job
defensively, Bianchi said.
Pound for pound, hes one
of the toughest kids Ive
ever coached. He never
gives up.
Murray kept the Comets
within striking distance in
the first quarter, scoring
SCRANTON- After
falling behind by 11 points
at the end of the first quar-
ter, Abington Heights
switched defenses and
changed the momentum of
the game.
We switched from zone
to man-to-man and coach
(Ken Bianchi) told us to
pressure a little bit more,
Abington Heights guard
J.C. Show said. We got
some turnovers and easy
baskets.
Show, who finished with
20 points and three assists,
scored five straight points
late in the fourth quarter to
lead Abington Heights to a
62-54 victory over North-
ern Lehigh in a PIAA first-
round contest March 9 at
the Lackawanna College
Student Union.
With the Comets ahead
by two points and just over
3:00 left in the game, Bi-
anchi called for a half-court
trap.

balanced offensive attack,
Abington Heights defeated
Upper Darby, 50-40, in a
PIAA first-round girls
basketball game at the
Lackawanna College Stu-
dent Union March 9.
The Lady Comets ended
the first quarter on a 7-2
run over the last four min-
utes to take a 14-9 lead.
Abington Heights scored
the first six points of the
second quarter before Up-
per Darbys Katie Fitz-
patrick, who finished with
a game-high 19 points,
scored eight straight for
the Lady Royals. Fitz-
patrick also grabbed eight
rebounds and had three
steals.
After Upper Darbys
Taylor Newman converted
the first bucket of the sec-
ond half, the Lady Comets
outscored the Lady Royals
15-6 over the final seven
minutes of the third quar-
ter to take a 37-27 lead.
Tiffany ODonnell, who
finished with 13 points
and six assists, scored five
points during the Abington
Heights run.
It was so important,
ODonnell said of building
an early lead. We were
upset with ourselves that
we let them get back in
the game, but getting up
by that much was definite-
ly a confidence booster.

SHAPE UP WITH SIMRELL a twice weekly fitness training series
This technique, which is part of Macarra BJJ PA Self Defense Series presented by
instructors James Simrell and David Walsh, is Defense for a choke from inside
closed guard
Feel great, look great
and live longer
Step 1: The attacker, in the blue, extends his
arms and begins choking the neck. The defend-
er wraps both legs around the waist of the
attacker crossing at the feet. Then traps the
right arm by crossing his arms over the fore-
arm. The defender hugs the arm tight to his
chest and opens his closed guard. Then he
places his left foot on the right hip of the at-
tacker. Finally, he holds his knee tightly into the
right side of the attacker, whose right arm is
now trapped.
ABINGTON JOURNAL /DON MCGLYNN
Step 2: The defenders right hand will slide from
the attackers right arm. Then he will grab under
the left inside thigh of the attacker, and the left
arm and leg will stay in position, keeping the
attackers right arm trapped. Working all move-
ments simultaneously, the left foot of the defend-
er will push off the hip, bringing the left leg over
the attackers head to the opposite side of his
face. The defenders right leg will rotate under
the left armpit aiming his heel toward the attack-
ers head. The defenders right hand will pull
under the left thigh pivoting his body from back
to the right.
Step 3: The defender should clamp down
with both of legs, over the head and under
the armpit of the attacker. Then while hold-
ing on tightly to the trapped right arm of the
attacker, the defender should move hips
upward and at the same time lift the right
arm that is grabbing the inside thigh up-
ward.
Step 4: This movement of the defenders
body will sweep the attacker to his back,
bringing the defenders body to the upright
position. Then the defender will move his
hand from the attackers thigh and cross it
over the defenders left arm, trapping the
attackers right arm close to the defenders
chest. Using body leverage, the defender
then extend his hips upward and pulls the
attackers arm back. The attacker has now
committed himself to being arm barred.
The attacker is now disengaged.

letes from Marywood Uni-

Lackawanna Trail senior
wrestler Eric Laytos fell just
short off the second Class
AA State Championship of
his high school career while
Abington Heights junior
Michael Carr faced a tough
draw in his first appearance
in the Class AAA state play-
offs at the Giant Center in
Hershey.
Laytos reached the gold
medal match, but lost to
John Rizzo of Richland
High School in a 12-3 major
decision.
We were the underdog
going into it and we knew
it, Lackawanna Trail head
coach Jeff Stauffer said.
We just pretty much laid it
all out but he (Rizzo) was
just too powerful and too
technical.
Laytos advanced to the
quarterfinals March 8 after
pinning Gus Bostdorf of
Camp Hill High School. He
then pinned Matt Mongera
of Seneca High School and
defeated Cam Cyphert of
Cochranton High School in
a 7-2 decision Friday to get
into his second gold medal
match where he earned
second place.
Eric gave it everything
he had and he just fell
short, Stauffer said. Both
of us have no regrets from
the match whatsoever.
With the loss in the cham-
pionship match, Laytos
leaves behind an illustrious
wrestling career with the
Lions. In a three-year
stretch at Lackawanna Trail,
Laytos earned three district
championships and one state
championship. In his other
two trips to states, Laytos
finished second and sev-
enth.
Its a rare thing to get a
kid who will just lay every-
thing out on the line for you
each and every time he steps
out on the mat or the foot-
ball field or pretty much
whatever he does, Stauffer
said. Hell give you every-
thing hes got and he wont
play anything or do anything
unless hes doing that.
In the Class AAA state
playoffs Carr faced off
against Garrett Peppelman
of Central Dauphin High
School, the eventual state
champion, in the first round.
We wrestled Peppelman
earlier this year and hes just
a tough kid to wrestle,
Abington Heights head
coach Chris Calder said. I
think Michael did the best
job he could under those
circumstances.
After losing to Peppel-
man, Carr fell short in a
matchup against Jon Nie-
man of Boyertown Area
Senior High School.
I think his performance
at states was good, Calder
said. This is the opportuni-
ty that he had to take back
to our wrestling room and
use it to become a leader
and showing the other kids
that this is what it takes to
get to Hershey.
Calder said Carrs experi-
ence at Hershey will not
only help him going into
next season but also help the
team.
We didnt have any state
qualifiers coming back this
year and next year we do,
Calder said. Were looking
ahead to that being a great
asset to have in the wres-
tling room.
Carr will aim to return to
the state playoffs next sea-
son in his final year at
Abington Heights.
Hes got to get physically
stronger, Calder said. Hes
got to maintain some of the
skills he does have and de-
velop some of the new skills
that he needs to go and
compete at a new level at
that state tournament.

PIAA State Wrestling Championships in Hershey.
seven of his 10 points.
T.J. hit some shots for
us when he were strug-
gling mightily early on
and he hit a big jumper at
the end, Bianchi said.
The Comets began the
second quarter on a 19-0
run that was sparked by
11 consecutive turnovers
by Northern Lehigh.
Kevin Elwell, who scored
six of his nine points in
the quarter, ended the run
with a 3-pointer. North-
ern Lehigh finally got
their first basket of the
quarter when Devin
Glose scored with 1:28
left.
That was a lot of
fun, Show said of the
run. A lot of people
might have counted us
out. There was a lot of
game left, but they were
giving it to us. The great
thing about this team is
that we stick together.
We never folded or wa-
vered, we just continued
to play hard and we were
able to make some
plays.
Pat Calvey, who was
held scoreless through-
out most of the game,
made three of four free-
throws in the final min-
utes to help seal the win.
Abington Heights
(23-5) was scheduled to
play Berks Catholic

Last week the Dietrich
kicked off its class series
Heres Looking at You! for
students ages five to 12 years
old. Under the direction of
Stephanie Bush, Everhart
Museum Educator, students
drew self-portraits of them-
selves and had to think of
one word to describe them-
selves.
It was neat to see how en-
gaged these students were in
creating their masterpieces.
Over the next few weeks they
will create even more por-
traits traditional and imagi-
native using a variety of
media including paints, col-
lage and clay. This class re-
lates to the Everharts current
exhibit Posing Beauty that is
available for viewing at the
museum through April 1. We
are very lucky to have the
Everhart so close to home.
We are also fortunate to
have the opportunity to see
live theatre in our area. I can
hardly believe that the Die-
trichs production of One
Flew Over the Cuckoos
Nest by Dale Wasserman
based on the novel by Ken
Kesey is less that a couple of
week away. As I am writing
this column, the cast and
crew are busy painting and
creating the set. So much
time and talent goes into
creating a show and we are
the lucky recipients that are
able to enjoy it.
One Flew Over the Cuck-
oos Nest is the story of a
rowdy misfit who lands in a
mental hospital to avoid the
work farm. At the hospital he
doesnt count on the complex
psychological society hes
about to upend, the desperate
need of the other downtrod-
den patients for a leader, or
the sadistic control of the
calm, smiling head nurse.
Mischievous Randle P.
McMurphy struggles to dis-
cover who really belongs in a
mental ward, and realizes
that he alone can liberate the
patients from the merciless
Nurse Ratched. But it just
may be the ultimate sacri-
fice.
This community-based
production directed by Jen-
nifer Jenkins will be on the
Dietrich stage for a five-day
run from March 21 to 25.
Tickets are available for
Wednesday, March 21 at 7
p.m., Friday and Saturday,
March 23 and 24 at 7 p.m.,
and Sunday, March 25 at 3
p.m. You will not want to

T
wo casts at Abington Heights
High School will try and re-
mind theatergoers what is
really important when they present
You Cant Take It With You, start-
ing March 15.
Directed by John Monahan, the
play, written by George S. Kaufman
and Moss Hart, tells the story of two
families, the Sycamores and the Kir-
bys.
Monahan said he talks with the
students each year for input on what
play to choose. This year he found a
number of students interested in do-
ing a comedy.
The director said hes refrained
from choosing comedy in the past
because it can be difficult. However
this groups talent and desire for a
challenge convinced him to take the
chance.
Another obstacle that kept him
from choosing a comedy in years past
was the amount of roles.
He said 62 students came out to
audition for the 19 available roles in
the show. Rather than send more than
40 children away, Monahan decided
to try something new and double-cast
the show, with each cast performing
on a different weekend.
We have 38 students involved on
stage, and probably just as many
backstage, said Monahan. I thought
that was better than turning them
away if they deserved to be up there.
I have a lot of admiration for Mr.
Monahan with doing this double
casting. Its been pretty time consum-
ing for him, said Fleming. Hes
basically doing twice as much work.
The respect is mutual, as Monahan
said doing it this way has given him
less rehearsal time with the cast, re-
quiring the students to do a lot of
work on their own time, and so far
theyve been up to the task.
In this 1930s comedy, two families
are brought together for dinner one
night after Tony, the Kirby son, falls
in love with Alice Sycamore. Prob-
lems arise for the young couple when
the Kirbys express their disproval
with the Sycamore lifestyle.
Everyone has these quirky little
traits, said Aaron Fleming, who
plays Martin Vanderhof in the play.
(My character) likes to collect
snakes, one of my sons-in-law col-
lects masks. I suppose back in the day
when people saw this it was weirder
than it would be now.
It was written in the 1930s. It has
that old fashioned 1930s feel, which I
feel is kind of a golden age for the
stage, said Zoe McNichols, who
plays Penelope Sycamore.
While the play itself may be old,
the message behind it is still very
valid.
We decided to do this one because
not only is it funny, but it has a really
good message about learning to value
whats really important in life, family
and relationships over money and
material objects, said Monahan.
The public will get a chance to see
the results of the hard work when the
first cast hits the stage on Friday and
Saturday, March 16 and 17 and the
second cast on March 22 and 23.

New Additions to the Adult Collection
That Woman, by Anne Sebba. The author, a dis-
tinguished historian and biographer, turns her focus
on Wallis Warfield Simpson, Duchess of Windsor,
who ensnared King Edward VIII and destabilized the
monarchy in the 1930s. Born in Baltimore in 1896,
Bessie Wallis Warfield endured an impoverished
childhood and grew up to live by her wit and her wits,
becoming one of the most talked-about women of her
generation. Based on new material discovered by the
author, this new biography provides fresh insight on
the character and motivations of a powerful and com-
plex woman.
Death Comes to Pemberley, by P. D. James. The
author, an acclaimed mystery writer, draws the char-
acters of Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice into a
tale of murder and emotional mayhem. Elizabeth and
Darcy are living a peaceful, orderly life with their two
young sons at Pemberley, Darcys magnificent estate,
and preparations are underway for their much-antici-
pated annual autumn ball. Then, on the eve of the
ball, Elizabeths disgraced sister, Lydia, who with her
husband, Wickham, has been banned from Pemberley,
arrives in a state of hysteria, shrieking that Wickham
has been murdered. While re-creating the world of
Jane Austen, P. D. James adds the excitement and sus-
pense of a cleverly crafted crime story.

They should come both weekends,
because it will be a totally different experi-
ence, said McNichols.
Its funny, you will get the same dia-

actual characterizations and speech pattern
and little nuances of physicality are defi-
nitely very unique for each weekend, said
Monahan.

Rowland. Larryjoinedthe non-

RowlandworkedwithBarlow
onday-to-dayfinancial issues,
but he andBarlowwere also
friends. He alsobecame a good
friendof mine. But as a board
member, its not likelythat well
findsomeone toreplace him.
LarryBarlowwas one of those
guys whowoulddowhatever for

He loved to travel and he loved the

Others, however, feel the law
isnt sucha goodidea. Jerilynn
Bytheway, 43, of Newton, said
she thinks its a stupidlaw,
because textingis just one of
manydistractions facingdrivers
onthe road.
If youcanlistentothe radio
andhave kids fightinginthe
backseat while driving, she
said, usingyour phone is no
different. She saidshe believes
it is possible totext anddrive
responsibly.
Domenic Rosiak, 21, of Ni-
cholson, saidhe thinks it de-
pends onthe driver. There are
gooddrivers, andthere are bad
drivers, he said. While he can
see the purpose behindthe law,
he saidhe alsosees noproblem
withtextingwhile drivingona

Blake Spanel, 23, of Clarks
Summit, saidhe cansee both
sides. Andwhile hes gladthe
state has put a banontexting, he
hopes it doesnt bantalkingon
the phone while driving. He
saidtextingresponsiblyis not
anoption, andhe feels its a lot
easier andsafer tojust make a
phone call.
ErinWaters, Spokesperson
for PennDOT, saidthe depart-
ment wants toeducate citizens
onthe dangers of distracted
driving, especiallyas tech-

saiddrivingshouldbe a per-

There are several studies
that confirmyouarent paying

Management LLC. Impres-
sions Media operates The
Times Leader, several com-
munity papers, associated
websites and digital media
businesses that serve commu-
nities in Northeastern Penn-
sylvania.
The terms of the sale were
not disclosed.
Prashant Shitut has been
named president and CEO of
the company, effective imme-
diately.
Shitut has more than 20
years of experience in the
industry. He has held a varie-
ty of senior leadership roles at
the company, working under
different corporate owner-
ships prior to becoming presi-
dent in early 2009.
He was a recipient of the
companys Executive of the
Year award in 2007. He
completed his graduate stud-
ies in Scranton and serves on
the boards of a variety of
community organizations.
We are very pleased to
have consummated the acqui-
sition of Impressions Media,
commented Gregory L. Se-
gall, chairman and CEO of
Versa Capital Management
LLC.
The company will now
move forward as a well-cap-
italized community newspa-
per and digital media busi-
ness that will continue to
serve its communities with
locally focused content.
Versa Capital Management
LLC, which is based in Phila-
delphia, has diverse invest-
ments in manufacturing, food
service and media including
the companies Polartec, Bell
and Howell, Allen Vanguard,
Black Angus Steakhouse
chain and Ohio Community

papers and websites serving
communities in northern and
western Ohio.
We are thrilled to have the
backing and confidence of a
well-run company with ex-
pertise in a variety of busi-
nesses, said Shitut. We
expect to continue on the path
of a vibrant multimedia com-
pany. Our growth and
achievements clearly indicate
that our products and services
provide value to our readers
and advertisers.
It is exciting to begin this
new chapter in our continuing
growth with an experienced
partner such as Versa, said
Shitut. We see great oppor-
tunity to grow as a multime-
dia company in Northeastern
Pennsylvania.
Shitut credited the employ-
ees of Impressions Media for
excellent work. He added:
They did not get distracted
by rumors and remained fo-
cused on their mission to
serve our readers, clients and
the community. I am very
proud of their achievements,
which are reflected through
our audience growth, market
share gains and overall stand-
ing in the community.
Impressions Media owns
and operates The Times
Leader, The Sunday Dispatch
in Pittston, The Dallas Post,
The Abington Journal, Go
Lackawanna, and several
shoppers and niche publi-
cations, as well as many web-
sites.
The company also has a
thriving new media business.
In addition to the news and
information websites, the
company has launched sever-
al digital marketing and ad-
vertising products for small to
mid-size businesses.
Website development, so-
cial media marketing, search

code marketing are among
many services provided by
the company.
In leveraging its state-of
the-art manufacturing facility,
the company also provides
printing, packaging and relat-
ed services to publishing
houses in Pennsylvania and
surrounding states.
Shitut cited several achieve-
ments, including a recently
published Audit Bureau of
Circulations (ABC) report
that showed that The Times
Leader and its branded edi-
tions reached more than
70,000 homes on Sunday, and
more than 40,000 homes
daily, on a five-day average.
The Times Leader online
audience has continued to
grow, too. According to Goo-
gle Analytics, timesleader-
.com saw more than 783,000
unique visitors for September
2011, an increase of 26 per-
cent compared to September
2010.
This success allows us to
be an active partner in the
community, presenting events
such as Great Women of NE-
PA and the local Scripps Na-
tional Spelling Bee, which led
to a local student becoming
the national champion speller
in Washington, said Shitut.
The company is committed
to providing local news for
readers in print and online
and creating products that
help our customers and cli-
ents achieve their goals.
The company has a history
that dates back to newspapers
of the Wyoming Valley in the
19th century. In 1907, two
papers merged to form The
Times Leader. In 1939, three
papers merged to create the
Wilkes-Barre Publishing Co.
In 1978, Capital Cities Com-
munications Inc. purchased
the publishing company.
Other changes followed:
The Times Leader launched a
Sunday paper in 1987; in
1996, Capital Cities/ABC
merged with Disney; a $15
million production facility
was installed in 1997; Disney
sold The Times Leader to
Knight-Ridder Inc. in 1997;
by 2006, Knight-Ridder had
sold The Times Leader to the
McClatchy Co., which sold
the paper to a newly formed
Wilkes-Barre Publishing Co.

have the increased grade.
In other news, Superintend-
ent Michael Mahon Ph.D.,
announced that the district
will not be offering the Man-
darin Chinese programnext
year to comply with the ruling
made by a hearing examiner
late last month.
The district started offering
the class in 2010 through a
partnership with The Uni-
versity of Scranton. In 2010,
The University of Scrantons
Asian Studies Programwas in
the process of trying to estab-
lish a Confucius Institute, a
nonprofit public institution
that aims to promote Chinese
language, culture and support
Chinese teaching internation-
ally.
The university was looking
for a high school to partner
with in the hopes it would
make their application more
appealing.
Abington Heights became
that school, and Chinas He-
nan College of Education gave
both schools a partial grant
and provided each with a
teacher to teach the classes.
The Abington Heights Edu-
cation Association filed a
charge of unfair practices with
the Pennsylvania Labor Rela-
tions Board in November of
2010, stating the class was in
violation of the teachers con-
tract, as the teacher was not a
member of the bargaining
unit.
The hearing examiner ruled
in favor of the association
February 24.
Mahon explained the dis-
trict attempted to resolve the
matter on their own, promis-
ing the association, among
other things, that no language
teacher would be furloughed
while the programwas in
place.
What the association want-
ed was we had to agree this
would only be two years long,
and while the initial plan was
to have it for two years, its not
for me to say were going to
cut a potentially good program
after two years.
Board members said the
response they have heard from
the community over the elim-
ination of the programhas
been negative.
The board will meet again
for its monthly meeting March
21.
CLARKS SUMMIT- The
Abington Heights School
Board decided to implement a
change in the way grades in
the district are calculated dur-
ing its work session March 7.
Currently, students in the
high school enrolled in honors
and advanced placement (AP)
courses have their final grade
increased 5 percent each quar-
ter, on the midtermand on the
final exam.
Starting next year, students
taking an honors course will
have their grade increased 3
percent, AP courses 5 percent,
and rather than increase the
grade six times per year, the
district will do it once at the
end of the year on the stu-
dents transcripts.
The final grade the student
receives overall for the year on
the transcript will be the same
as it would have been if it had
been added six times, but the
district feels that by doing it
once a year it will give the
students a better idea of where
they stand, and what they
actually earned.
What happens because of
the way we do it? said Assist-
ant Superintendent Thomas
Quinn, Ph.D. Well, one of the
consequences are there are
some milestone thresholds in
the academic world that we
actually tend to push kids over
if they get close enough.
Two examples Quinn gave
of this is a student actually
earning an 87 for the quarter,
but being put on the honor roll
and, in what he described as
an extreme example, a student
in one of these classes could
be failing the course with a 63
but still pass.
These examples are all
ramifications of the increase
being added six times per
year.
In a sense, what occurs to
me is we protect our high
achieving kids fromconfront-
ing their actual achievement,
because we inflate our period-
ic reports of what that
achievement is, said Quinn.

T
his year, one Abington
Heights High School
freshman had the oppor-
tunity to say happy birthday to a
person who inspires her, and
possibly inspire others in the
process.
Clarks Summit resident Car-
oline DelSole, 15, was chosen
to sing backup on the song
Thank you JB. The song, now
available on iTunes, is a tribute
to the singer Justin Bieber, and
was released March1to coinci-
de with Biebers 18th birthday.
He didnt specifically say (if
he heard it), but someone tweet-
ed himthe link and he retweet-
ed it, said DelSole.
DelSole explained the song
was put together by Vivian L.
Pham, a helper at Biebers re-
cord label, Island Def Jam, and
an intern at Beiberfever.com.
(The) website has news
about him, and she has a lot of
followers on Twitter, said Del-
Sole.
She had this idea to make a
song for Justin on his birthday
just about howmuch he means
to people.
Phamasked fans to submit
lyrics about Bieber. DelSole
said 20 to 30,000 fans sent in
lyrics, and Phamwhittled them
down, choosing the ones she
felt were the best and using
those in the song.
Before recording the song,
Phamsawa video of DelSole
singing on YouTube, and asked
her to sing backup on Thank
you JB.
DelSole, whose Twitter ac-
count, @Rockthatbieber, has
60,000 followers and is dedi-
cated to posting information
about the singer, was happy to
be a part of the tribute.
The daughter of Ed and Mo-
na DelSole, she started the
Twitter account three years ago,
just two weeks after hearing his
music for the first time.
She credited Bieber with
inspiring her to learn howto
play the piano and guitar.
He just gives hope to a lot of
people, and his musics great,
said DelSole.
With Phamin Canada, Del-
Sole recorded her part of the
song in Clarks Summit with
home recording equipment and
it was later mixed by a pro-
ducer.
She said shes happy with the
way the song came out and that
all the money raised fromsales
of the song on iTunes will go
toward Biebers BELIEVE
Charity Drive.
Imreally excited that its
going to help people, said
DelSole.
Locally, DelSole has per-
formed at Amici Restaurant and
the Abington Heights High
School talent show. She also
performed in an American Idol
contest in Orlando, Florida.

formance, email Mdel-
