Submitted by George Maehrer Forest Fire Warden Pocono Forest Fire Crew

The months of March, April, and May represent a time of change in Pennsylvania, when the snows of winter give way to the renewed life of spring. These changes transition us into the warm summer months. Most of us associate these months with animals coming out of hibernation, the blossoming of flowers, and trees coming into bud to sprout their new leaves and new growth, but this is also the time of another season. March, April, and May are also the months when Wildland Fire Season comes to Pennʼs Woods. As winterʼs snow melts, our forests are left open to the strengthening sun and springtime winds. With the forest canopy still depleted from the previous autumn, there is nothing to shield the fallen leaves, pine needles, twigs,

and branches from the warming sun and strong spring winds. As the sun reaches higher high er and higher into the sky, the days get longer, and the nights shorter. The sunʼs beams become more direct, warming the earth more and more. This increases the average air temperature approximately 40°F in just 12 weeks. Along with this rapid change in temperature typically come strong westerly winds, almost due west in fact. Remember, the direction of the wind refers to where the wind is coming from. To our west is mainly dry land consisting of the western deserts and the Great Plains so there is very little moisture in the air masses accompanying west winds. Yes we do still get rain in the springtime, but these rain showers are often violent and quick with much of the water running off instead of soaking in. When they end, the exposed landscape is scoured by warm sunlight and strong spring winds rapidly

drying the forest floor once again. Many of the fuels in the forest are capable of igniting in as little as one hour after a rain storm. Most available fuels are primed for ignition within 10 hours. These conditions tend to clash with what people want. Most all of us want to clean our properties of the leaf pack from the fall and all those fallen branches and twigs from the winter and this is a good thing; in fact, doing so helps protect our homes and properties from an approachin approaching g wildfire. However, there are many people who choose to burn these yard debris, which often results in these fires breaking containment. Controlled burns that get away represent the leading cause of wildland fires and with our primary fire season at the same time of the year that we are cleaning up our yards, burning yard debris is definitely not the best option.

Tunkhannock Townshipʼs February Feb ruary 24 supervisors meeting meet ing was much quieter than the last few. Only 11 citizens attended this night. They were quiet during the public hearing to approve the amendments amend ments to the Zoning Ordinance relating to outdoor fuel burners/furnaces, and that passed 2-0, Maureen Sterner and George Ewald in favor. The contract between TobyTobyhanna and Tunkhannock Townships Town ships to share sewage enforcement en forcement services was rereviewed, and changes will be made prior to a public hearing on the subject on March 10. Tunkhannock will spend $40 per hour on an as-needed basis, plus expenses, paid monthly to Tobyhanna. SewSewage enforcement fees will be set by Tobyhanna Township. Filling the vacant seat on the board of supervisors has attracted six letters of interest as of the meeting night: FranFrancis DePiano, Jim Davenport,

Barbara Kerms, Paulette BoyBoyskey, Maria Wieand and JoJoseph OʼLall. Letters are still being accepted, but, a decision is expected on March 10, so if interested, send or drop off letters right away. Bulk trash weekend in Tunkhannock Tunk hannock will be held only once this year, May 14 to 17. A community yard sale (as a fundraiser fund raiser for the TunkhanTunkhannock Twp. Volunteer Fire Co.) is proposed, proposed, if TTVFD members are interested. Tunkfest is on hold and can be restarted with enough interest and donations – no township money will be used for the event. A letter of support for the Community Visioning project will be sent. No money from the budget is set aside for the project, however. Supervisors tabled for rereview the yearly contract for computer maintenance from Keiselʼs Computer Services. The township is looking at the idea of having a common

Spring’s approach... Continued from page 1 As an alternative to burning this waste, we recommend composting. com posting. Composting not only eliminates the possibility of a controlled burn escaping into the woods; it also, over time, transforms yard debris into rich fertile humus that can be added to gardens to nourish the soil. It also keeps yard debris from going into landfills. You can also add most kitchen waste to your compost pile as

well. Vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and even egg shells can be composted. Other things that can be composted include sawdust, shredded newspaper, news paper, and even tea bags. Any waste that goes into your compost pile is waste that stays out of a landfill, so in this day of Go Green, composting is one more way you can do exactly that. If you think you would like to give composting com posting a try, there are many excellent articles on the subject available on the InterInter net.

 presents

“Learn Not 2 Burn” button at the left. If you still elect to burn your yard debris, remember there is no 100% foolproof way to ensure the fire will not break containment. However, following these simple common sense rules will make your fire as safe as possible. Never burn on dry windy days or when burn bans are in effect. Check local ordinances regarding burning. Many dedevelopments vel opments also have rules governing burning so if you live in a development, check with your association as well. Always keep a charged gar-

 

den hose at the ready. Should your find it necessary to use the hose, never use a straight stream; instead, use a spray pattern as this will cool a larger area more rapidly and a straight stream will likely cast hot embers out from the fire and into the forest as much as several feet away. Never leave your fire unattended; remember, if you walk away from your fire, your fire may walk away from you. Keep your fire small and only add small amounts of debris at a time. If possible, burn in a container such as a burn barrel and use a heavy duty screen to reduce the chance of flying embers. Keep an eye to changing weather conditions and stop burning burn ing if you notice the weather weath er is getting hotter, drydryer, and/or the wind is increasing.

Remember, you can always cover your pile with a tarp and wait to burn it another day when it is safer to do so. When you are finished burning for the day, ensure your fire is out cold by soaking it good with water and stirring the ashes. Repeat this until you feel no heat coming off of it when you pass the back of your ungloved hand a couple inches above the coals. Following these simple rules will greatly reduce the risk of your fire escaping containment. This is a wildfire prevention message from Pocono Forest Fire Crew, George W. MaehrMaehrer – Pennsylvania Forest Fire Warden.

 Letter to the Editor  Dear Editor:

During last weekʼs state budbudget address, Gov. Rendell warnwarned lawmakers that a fiscal tsutsunami is on the horizon. Small business-owners would argue itʼs already here. Small-business optimism is near its lowest point since the 1980s. A report by the smallbusiness NFIBto reveals small firmsgroup continue reduce their workforces or leave vacant positions unfilled. Owners are reluctant re luctant to purchase new equipment equip ment or expand. Poor sales are the main culprit cited by most small firms and many do not expect the climate to improve any time soon. As small businesses struggle to find customers, Gov. RenRendellʼs tax plan only will make it tougher for them to get back on solid footing. Taxing advertising, accounting and legal services only will raise the cost of doing business—reducing profits even further and preventing any prospects for job creation in the near future.

Pennsylvania businesses soon will be expected to pay the lionʼs share of a $2 billion deficit in the stateʼs unemployment trust fund. Many of these businesses still are trying to adjust to the Capital Stock and FranFranchise tax rate increase enacted late last year. Now these firms are slashing prices to attract

 Dining Out  Antonio’s Pizza Main Street Plaza  White Haven  by Ruth Isenberg

Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Itʼs quick, itʼs hot, itʼs filling, itʼs delicious. Our area is blessed with some really great pizza restaurants, and because be cause of our busy schedules here at the Journal, we visit them often. Sometimes, though, I want something different. This week, at Antonioʼs Pizza in the White Haven Shopping Plaza, I en joyed a vegetable stromboli. It met all the above requirements,, plus one more requirements it contained at least four servings of healthy vegetables. Since I struggle to eat right, which isnʼt easy when youʼre eating on the go, the fact that I could consume this many veg-

etables at one sitting, and not being eating a salad was a definite plus. The dough was thin, almost stretchy, and the mixture of broccoli, spinach, onion and  just a few peppers (I handed most of them off to Seth) steamed, coated in rich mozzarella cheese. The flavors blended perfectly, and were complemented by the red wine/Marinara sauce for dipping. Between the two of us, we managed to finish the stromboli, along with a turkey wrap. The same stromboli dough was used for the wrap, giving it a crusty and chewy texture that thinner sheets of dough  just donʼt offer offer.. It was filled with turkey, tomato, lettuce and cheese, and gently warmed, just enough to soften the cheese but not fully melt it. A bit of mayonnaise provided all the dressing needed. That sandwich was mainly Sethʼs, but I sampled one of the four sections.

PAGE 10–The 10–The Journal of the Pocono Plateau,  W  Week eek of March 4, 2010

Seth’s Sightings  by Seth Isenberg  Beautiful. Our area is beautiful right now, buried under a heavy blanket of white. All around us there are spectacles (and icicles)—winter wonders. This past weekʼs storm was “one to tell the grandkids about.” Iʼve written in this space that I remember a few storms like this one, while growing up, and one while in college. I learned that winter means snow, and that was the case right through the early 1970s. Some change took place 30 plus years ago, and winter equals snow no longer equated. For a long time, I predicted a weather cycle that would mean snowier times, thinking I saw a change about every 20 years in weather patterns. I stopped predicting this a few years ago. It just was too long since normal winters. Iʼm not willing to give up the idea, however. Perhaps itʼs a 35 to 40 year cycle. If so, weʼll be ale to count on winter being winter-like for many years to come now. Itʼs time to begin naming Norʼeasters, like we name hurricanes. Last weekʼs storm could have easily had a hurricane name. Someone called it a snow-ricane, but calling these storms anything that makes them seem unusual misleads folks. By my count, this was Norʼeaster Number 4 of the ʼ09-ʼ10 season, and thereʼs another one predicted. Its effects may be already on the ground by the time this issue is in your hands. We choose to live here, and part of that deal is to accept the weather challenges. We are spared earthquakes and tornadoes are extremely rare, and donʼt live in the hurricane zone, so our weather challenge is storms like these— Norʼeasters.

Itʼs been days of digging, and even as I wield the shovel, I find myself thinking of a real natural disaster, the very strong earthquake in Chile (I can add tsunamis to the list of things we donʼt have to worry about, here in the eastern mountains of PA). A huge earthquake did a bit of damage, and there are a few hundred people dead, and then there were tsunami fears all across the Pacific Ocean. As I widened my walk paths, one shovelful of snow at a time, I thought about the relative luck of having a big quake in an area mostly prepared for it. If that quake had hit Haiti, it would easily have been another hundred thousand dead. I looked at my news sites on Sunday. I was reading about the Chilean quake, and could see videos. In looking at those, there were a few from closed circuit cameras. I was amazed to see these—the most interesting was of a secured gates, where the camera starts bouncing roughly once per second, followed by a brief period where the shaking was at least three times faster. Iʼll take two feet of snow over that. Terra firma is definitely preferred over shaky ground. There are lots of winter wonders to see and enjoy when driving around. Our travels this week took us through a snow squall from one sunny end to the other, being able to see the storm to our north and behind us, and then watching it close in as we drove into one of its arms. A side trip on Saturday took us south on Kuhenbeaker Road in Long Pond, where we passed between mountainous snow banks, where drifts had blocked the road Thursday and Friday. The biggest drift we saw was south of

Downtown White Haven.

Weatherly across from St. Matthewʼs Church, although itʼs probable that it was made taller by the heavy equipment used by PennDOT to clear the intersection. The best use of heavy equipment we saw was a parent who was working with his kids to make a giant snowman off Quakake Road, south of Weatherly. He was putting the huge head on the near-

ly 20ʼ tall snowman, using the front bucket of his tractor/backhoe. Another sighting—weʼd made a trip to Matirko Hardware for a bathroom item. As we left, we noticed an SUV parked next to our truck with its back door open. Inside were four bags of salt, and a case of beer. On our travels this week, weʼve seen turkeys being fed in a field by

The Journal of the Pocono Plateau,  W  Week eek of March 4, 2010–PA 2010–PAGE GE 13

Seth’ss Sightings.. Seth’ Sightings.... Continued from page 10 Also from our travels, McAdoo borough, south of Hazleton, seemed to have the heaviest snowfall from the storm (that we saw). Their snow banks were just enormous down the Main Street, almost five feet high. Weʼve seen higher, but not much, in the snowy passes between mountains in the Sierras of California, and the Rockies of Colorado.

Hiking this week included a walk through deep snow in Hickory Run State Park on Saturday – a short walk as footing was too uncertain and the dogs tired fast – so did we. Sunday, we went further west and south a bit to Tuscarora State Park, where we hiked along a closed park road where snow had drifted in places. Footing here was good, so we managed a long walk as the sun set. We are really looking forward to the change to Daylight Savings Time coming up in two weekends. We fit in some fun at Mt. Airy

Casino Resort on Saturday, fitting in to the late performance of Peter Noone and Hermanʼs Hermits in their Gypsies nightclub. Noone performed for about an hour of music and entertaining with songs, stories and jokes. He sounded great, and his band was sharp – right on the music. At Gypsies, the audience is very close to the stage  – good seats for everyone. Their sound system is fantastic - crisp, and not too loud. There is also a closed circuit TV system showing the stage from big screen TVs spread throughout the room –

bonus to see the performer from other angles than the one from your seat. Some good performers are coming in to Mt. Airy Casino over the next few weeks and months. There may even be tickets still available for this weekendʼs shows by Gary Puckett and B. J. Thomas. Parking is free, with shuttles if needed that bring you to the main entrance (like when itʼs cold and snowy). Inside the building, the nightclub is  just a short walk from the entrance, and just off the gaming floor if you want to try your luck.

14–The Journal of the Pocono Plateau,  W PAGE 14–The  Week eek of March 4, 2010

Police Beat  by Seth Isenberg  PA State Police – Lehighton have arrested 45 y.o. Edwin J. Kelly of Scotrun and accused him of the murder of David W. McMc Entire of Kunkletown in October of 2005. The Monroe County District Attorneyʼs office is assisting PSP investigators. Kelly is in the Monroe County jail without bail. The investigation continues. PSP-L was called to a home on Red Oak Dr. near Palmerton Palmerton to investigate the death of a 77 y.o. man of apparent natural causes between 2-11 and 2-15. On 2-12 and again on 2-28, 26 y.o.
