Record-breaking season!
Halloween night proved
to have little tricks and
lots of treats for the
Comet football team.
It was a Senior Night
under the stars at Crestwood High School as the
Comets football team
played their final
regular season game
of the 2014 season. They
defeated Pottsville
50-20 for their first undefeated season in the
history of the school.
They clinched the Wyoming Valley Conference
District II AAA championship the previous
week and with a record
of 34-6, over the last four
years, made the playoffs
for four straight years.

Having A Party???
We can do the cooking!
Hot, Fresh, Ready To Serve!
Entrees from $3.79/lb. and up.
Sides/Desserts from $2.99/lb. and up.
How much do
I really need???
Serving sizes vary, but a good rule of thumb is:
a pound feeds 3-4 people. So, an example of
feeding 30 people may be to have 8-10 lbs. of
entrees and the same in sides and desserts. Of
course, if you prefer to make your own
desserts or sides, you may just order
what you need from us.
A few “ground rules”
• We request 7 days notice so we can be sure to have exactly what you want and have it ready when
you need it, but do call us, some items and smaller orders can be arranged with less lead time.
• No deliveries — pick up in store only (to keep prices low).
• Minimum order is 4 lbs. of any one item.
• To be sure we “get it right”, there are limited times to place orders and pick-up as well.
Stop at our deli and get a “catering menu” for all the details!

III Guys Restaurant holds benefit for Ryan’s Run and Allied Services
A benefit for Ryan’s Run was
held at III Guys Restaurant on
Saturday, October 25 from 5 to
7 p.m. The event, which was
organized by a Mountain Top
group that is either running in
the NYC Marathon or knows
someone who is, was a complete success.
One of the bartenders at
III Guys has a daughter that
has cerebral palsy and is this
year’s Ambassador for Ryan’s
Run and Allied Services/John
Heinz Rehab. Ten year old
Kylie Doherty has been going
to John Heinz for the past ten
years for therapy to help her
with the issues that come with
cerebral palsy.
Cost to attend the party/benefit was a $10 donation and

daughter, the 2014 Ambassador for Ryan’s Run and Allied
Services, Kylie, 10, pose for a

included beverages, a variety
of delicious appetizers and
music by DJ’s Roz and Bruce.
There were many baskets of
goodies and gift certificates
for many local businesses that
were generously donated by
area establishments.
Ryan’s Run is an awareness
and fundraising campaign
that began in 2010 by Ryan
Leckey of WNEP-TV. Ryan and
four other area athletes ran in
the NYC Marathon and raised
more than $100,000 for children and adults with disabilities. The program is all about
raising awareness, inspiring
fitness, challenging disability
and changing lives.
Since that first year and many
corporate sponsors, schools,
counties and donors from
NEPA, more than $900,000 has
been raised. That money has

Halloween costume party benefits Michael Cleary Memorial Fund
A fun Halloween costume dance and benefit was held at the
Wright Township Fire Hall on Saturday, October 25 from 6-9 p.m.
to benefit the 1st Lt. Michael Cleary Memorial Fund. Admission
cost $5 a person and included dancing, plenty of refreshments,
costume prizes and more. There was a 50/50 raffle as well. All
of the proceeds went to the Memorial Fund. Mostly children
came in costume, but some adults did too. It was a great time
for a great cause.
1st Lt. Michael Cleary died December 20, 2005 while serving
during Operation Iraqi Freedom; he was only 24 years old. His
parents Jack and Marianne Cleary and family set up the 1st Lt.
Michael J. Cleary Memorial Fund; its purpose is to support veterans’ causes and those with special needs. Cleary had a desire
to help his military comrades and also a soft spot for those with
special needs, especially after growing up with an older brother,
Patrick, who has Down syndrome.

Sheen recognized by scholarship program
Claire Sheen, a senior at MMI
Preparatory School, has been
notified she is a Semifinalist in
the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Sheen is one of the academically talented high school
seniors who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth
about $33 million that will be
offered next spring.
About 1.4 million juniors
in more than 22,000 high
schools entered the 2015
National Merit Scholarship
Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test
(PSAT/NMSQT®), which served
as an initial screen of program
entrants. The nationwide pool
of Semifinalists, representing less than 1 percent of U.S.
high school seniors, includes
the highest scoring entrants
in each state. The number of
Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of
graduating seniors.
Sheen is the daughter of
Kwangsup and Chaeyun Sheen
of Mountain Top.
From the approximately
16,000 Semifinalists, about
1 5 , 0 0 0 a re ex p e c t e d to
advance to the Finalist level.
All National Merit Scholarship
winners will be selected from
this group of Finalists.
Three types of National Merit
Scholarships will be offered
in the spring of 2015. Every
Finalist will compete for
one of 2,500 National Merit®
$2,500 scholarships that will
be awarded on a state-representational basis. About 1,000
corporate-sponsored Merit
Scholarship awards will be
provided by approximately
240 corporations and business
organizations for Finalists who
meet their specified criteria,
Claire Sheen
such as children of the grantor’s employees or residents of
communities where sponsor
plants or offices are located.
In addition, about 200 colleges
and universities are expected
to finance some 4,100 collegesponsored Merit Scholarship
awards for Finalists who will
attend the sponsor institution.
NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without
government assistance, was
established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual
National Merit Scholarship
Program. Scholarships are
underwritten by NMSC with
its own funds and by approximately 440 business organizations and higher education
institutions that share NMSC’s
goals of honoring the nation’s
scholastic champions and
encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.
Rice students caught being good
Front row, from left are Rice students Lily Kania, Vincent
Nealon, Samuel Partington, and Ryan Yedloski; back row:
Kyle Johns, Rachel Gornicz and Josh Partington.
Several students from Rice Elementary were recently
caught doing good things during the month of October at
the school. Each student was nominated for a good deed by
a teacher or staff member. Keep up the good work!

Jennie Gogick turned 99 years old on Saturday, October 25
and a beautiful celebratory party was held for her on Friday,
October 24 at the Mountain Top Active Adult Center where
she goes just about every day. Born and raised in Nanticoke,
she has lived in Mountain Top since 1977 because she didn’t
want to live in the flood zone after the 1972 flood. Jennie
is amazing and you would never guess her age by her fun
loving youthful attitude and very sharp mind, plus she still
lives in her home and drives by herself. Following lunch
everyone had ice cream and birthday cake with her.

The Comets also set school records with the most yards in a
season, total yards in a game,
most rushing yards and most
rushing yards in a game. “It
was an overall great night for
the football program,” Coach
Greg Myers said.
The highlight of the evening
came near the end of the first
quarter when senior running
back Frank Aigeldinger ran for
three yards and a touchdown
putting him over 4000 yards.
Coach Myers said that Aigeldinger is one of the leaders on
the team. He is a hard worker
and puts a lot of time into the
football program Myers said.
Aigeldinger is known as a
power runner with great lateral
movement, he can explode
down the sideline at any time.
He said that while he is the first
player at Crestwood to reach

Congratulations to the players and coaching staff of the

Fairview Township
budget prepared
For the third consecutive
year, property owners in Fairview Township should not see
a tax increase.
Supervisors on Monday
night announced the township’s 2015 tentative budget
has been prepared and is
available for inspection. The
fiscal plan will be adopted
at their regular meeting on
December 1. The budget calls
for revenue and expenses of
$1,401,171, an increase of
$84,790 from the current year.
Despite the slight increase in
spending, property taxes will
remain at .0085 mills. If the
budget and tax rate as presented are approved, property
owners will pay $85 for every
$100,000 of assessed value
of their property. Supervisors
anticipate $310,000 revenue
from property taxes. Income
from earned income tax is the
highest source of anticipated
revenue at $717,871.
Cost of police service is the
greatest expenditure in the
proposed budget. Supervisors
anticipate spending $437,022
on police salaries and equipment. The department has
five full-time officers and four
part-time officers. The township’s road department is the
second highest budget cost at
$277,260.
Supervisor Michael Iorio
announced Monday night
the township was awarded a
$45,000 matching grant from
the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. He said the money will be
used to upgrade equipment at
the township’s memorial park.
He noted the township match
can be spread over three years.

The celebration of the Feast of St. Francis is always a special day for the students in St. Jude School prekindergarten
and kindergarten classes. Deacon Gene Kovatch, Pastoral
Outreach at St. Jude, visited the students and led the celebration. He spoke to the students about the life of St. Francis –
how he fed and clothed needy children, how he loved to pray,
and how the animals loved him because he was so kind and
gentle. Deacon Gene encouraged the students to follow the

St. Jude’s students
explore apple theme
Shown from left are Matthew Rodgers, Kira Millard, and Brianna Buyo.
The three year old students at St. Jude School have been
enjoying learning about apples as part of the beginning of
their alphabet study. They listened to the story Apples by Gail
Gibbons and then discussed how they grow, the parts of an
apple, different varieties, and what we use them for.
While completing their apple craft, the students practiced
learning colors and proper gluing methods. The best part,
according to the students, was when they were able to taste
a variety of apples and decide which kind was their favorite.
