H.S. Softball: Hazleton Area to face Spring-Ford, ace pitcher 6A state semifinals

Hazleton Area and District 1 third seed Spring-Ford know that well as they meet in a PIAA Class 6A softball state semifinal game at 5 p.m. Monday at Patriots Park in Allentown. Hazleton Area (22-1) had one of the most potent offensives in the Wyoming Valley Conference on the way to the WVC Division 1 and District 2 Class 6A championships. Things, though, can change in the state tournament where the pitching level and tension increase sharply. Hazleton Area had to scratch out a 2-1 victory over D1 fourth seed Pennsbury in its state opener. The Cougars banged out eight hits, but needed a pair of Pennsbury errors to set up a couple sacrifice fly situations to score. Gianna Gombeda knocked in the first run with a sac fly to right in the fourth. Olivia Wolk did the same thing in the fifth. Plus, Pennsbury’s offense was curtailed by stellar glove play by Hazleton Area third baseman Tiana Treon and left fielder Kyra Antolick. “It’s been a tale of two seasons for us,” Hazleton Area coach Bob Bertoni said. “Offensively, we’ve been strong during the regular season. Now it’s our pitching and our defense. Then came D1 champion Downingtown West in the quarterfinals. Hazleton Area won the gam...

Exposed gas line found near Girl Scout camp in Lafayette

LAFAYETTE — A Lafayette resident has found another exposed section of the same PG&E gas line that is sticking out from the ground about half a mile away in Briones Regional Park. Brad Crane’s discovery of a second exposed section, just south of a Girl Scout camp, has sparked a critical email sent to Pacific Gas & Electric by Lafayette City Councilman Cameron Burks, who is demanding answers from the utility. “Respectfully, please definitively state that it is safe or that it is not safe to hike, camp or physically be in the general proximity of these exposed pipelines,” Burks said in his email, sent early Thursday morning. “Options for your response/answer: Yes or no. If it is safe, please advise as to any precautions our public should take.” Crane said he came across the portion of the exposed gas line Tuesday. It’s in Briones Regional Park in the Springhill neighborhood of Lafayette and nearby Pleasant Hill. “I had heard a rumor about an exposed section behind the Girl Scout facility and took a hike to see if I could find it,” Crane said in an email Wednesday. “I volunteer at the summer GS (Girl Scout) camp there so I know the facility well. I had a good idea where to l...

This Manual Transmission Electric Ford Ranger Has A 30 Mile Range And It’s For Sale

Some enterprising individual converted a 1987 manual transmission-equipped Ford Ranger into an electric truck, and the resulting golf cart battery-powered Ford mini-truck is for sale right now on Craigslist. Let’s take a look at this lovely creation. A reader named Austin sent me a link to the electric 1987 Ford Ranger you see in these photos. As you might have guessed, Ford did not build an EV Ranger in 1987, so this is a homemade setup, with 16 six-volt lead-acid golf cart batteries wired in series sitting below a custom dump-bed behind the cab, and four more batteries packaged under the hood. Apparently, whoever converted this truck to electric power was a “very capable older fellow…who did a very professional job both engineering wise and fit and finish,” with the seller describing the quality of the conversion in the listing: Circuits are labeled on the vehicle and he made a detailed schematic. The bed tilts back in a very ingenious way (hood latches and spring assist) to access 16 of the batteries located under the bed. The other four 6v batteries are in the engine compartment, along with a separate 12v battery which has it’s own on-board 120 dc to 12v dc charger. Th...

Owning a classic Chevy muscle car sure has its benefits, especially when you go out in

Owning a classic Chevy muscle car sure has its benefits, especially when you go out in the garage, fire it up, and hit the open road. The thing is, you can wheel your car through every season regardless if it’s blistering hot or freezing cold outside. But wouldn’t it be a whole lot better if you had the extra comfort of a perfectly balanced climate control system? Regardless if you’re running a factory stock driveline or a hopped-up mill with a supercharger or turbo setup, you can turn to the team at Vintage Air to help incorporate one of their well-engineered systems into your ride. We met up with Peter Newell of Competition Specialties in Walpole, Massachusetts, who needed to add a climate control system to a ’68 Camaro that was recently updated with a wicked twin-turbo small-block Chevy. Vintage Air offered a seamless solution with their Gen IV SureFit complete system engineered for the 1967-’68 Camaro. The cutting-edge system features fly-by-wire, fully electronic servo motor controls—eliminating the need for cables or routing of a capillary tube—as well as infinite blower fan speed adjustment and temperature air blending. Added features include a high-volume dehumidified de...

Top Innovations from the National Restaurant Association Show | Modern Restaurant Management

The experts at Parts Town walked the entire show floor, looking for the best equipment, technology, foods, drinks and more. The team noted some standouts including a tortilla machine, a tray tracker, automated cabinets for food pickups and donut mixology. Read on for some of the greatest innovations and observations from the 100th anniversary show. Grindmaster-Cecilware has released yet another gem in their line of coffee equipment. The PrecisionBrew Air-Heated Shuttle Brewer has shuttles designed to maintain temperature and flavor. So how does it achieve this? Each shuttle is heated by recirculating hot air. Traditional machines use electric coils, which can cause hot spots and scorching of your brew. This model also is equipped with Java-tate™ technology that stirs coffee at regular short intervals to keep the brew seamlessly blended. Whether you’re cutting or removing them, prepping tortillas can be tricky and time consuming. Well, until now. The Ventura Flex, which was released in 2018, is the first ever electric tabletop tortilla maker. Despite its small footprint, the machine makes up to 840 corn tortillas per hour and has multiple setting to adjust thickness and sizes. It...

Sporting a classy, faux brushed aluminium finish and a stand that offers more than the usual

Sporting a classy, faux brushed aluminium finish and a stand that offers more than the usual fare, HP’s latest foray in the 22-inch widescreen market is attractive and feels well-built. The initial set up was a breeze; the unit had a heft and resistance that usually isn’t found in monitors in this price bracket, giving it a feel of quality. The stand itself was a particular highlight — rather than offering the usual tilt function that 22-inch monitors are restricted to, it also offered pivoting through a rubberised turntable underneath the base, making turning the monitor easier. The screen itself can be rotated 90 degrees and height adjustment is a welcome and pleasant surprise. The curved neck leading down into the base of the stand also gives space to store your keyboard and a rectangular nook in the neck serves for cable management, a nice touch for users with limited desk real-estate and a need for neatness. Not all was perfect though, and the LA2205wg suffers a few design faults. Firstly, the bezel wasn’t very rigid at the sides, resulting in distortions and blotches on the screen from even a slight pressure, such as when adjusting the monitor’s pos...

WILKES-BARRE — Glass doors were smashed, graffiti was painted on walls and it appeared a fire

WILKES-BARRE — Glass doors were smashed, graffiti was painted on walls and it appeared a fire was attempted at the Planned Parenthood clinic on North Main Street early Monday. Surveillance cameras recorded a white male wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers cap and holding a can of paint and a crowbar as he stood inside of the smashed doorway. Melissa Reed, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Keystone, said she found out about the vandalism when she reached her Allentown office in the morning. “About 3 a.m. this morning (Monday) a white male, red hair, threw a brick through our windows. He returned later and threw another brick and painted graffiti inside the lobby area.” City police and a state trooper with the Forensic Services Unit processed the scene and recovered bricks and a burned book. Shattered glass was scattered throughout the entrance of the lobby and the interior glass doors were smashed. Red paint was poured on the lobby floor, including the wall with a painted Bible verse: “Blessed are those who mourn Matt. 5:4.” “The perpetrator sprayed in red spray paint a verse from the Bible I believe in an effort to protest reproductive healthcare for women...

Early adopters of LED lighting will remember 50,000 hour or even 100,000 hour lifetime ratings printed on

Early adopters of LED lighting will remember 50,000 hour or even 100,000 hour lifetime ratings printed on the box. But during a recent trip to the hardware store the longest advertised lifetime I found was 25,000 hours. Others claimed only 7,500 or 15,000 hours. And yes, these are brand-name bulbs from Cree and GE. So, what happened to those 100,000 hour residential LED bulbs? Were the initial estimates just over-optimistic? Was it all marketing hype? Or, did we not know enough about LED aging to predict the true useful life of a bulb? I put these questions to the test. Join me after the break for some background on the light bulb cartel from the days of incandescent bulbs (not a joke, a cartel controlled the life of your bulbs), and for the destruction of some modern LED bulbs to see why the lifetimes are clocking in a lot lower than the original wave of LED replacements. Any discussion of light bulb lifetime would be incomplete without mention of the Phoebus cartel, an international organization formed in 1924 by the world’s leading light bulb manufacturers to manipulate the bulb market. As discussed by Markus Krajewski in “The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy”, the cartel assigned...
