The show features “an off-the-charts set,” LaChette said, plus some nifty special effects as Matilda makes several things move with her mind, from cups to chalk. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of catchy songs throughout the show, including “Bruce,” “Revolting Children” and the opening number, “Miracle,” which goes on for about 10 minutes. “These kids have been working Submitted photoS their butts off,” LaChette said. “It’s Gwen Keezer stars as Matilda. going to be a great show.”AROU ND T O W N • Kyra Pfeiffer of Taylor was placed on the Church barbecue Gettysburg College dean’s honor list for outPrince of Peace Parish in Old Forge will Old Forge Borough started a farmers marstanding academic achievement in the sponsor a chicken barbecue and basket rafket.

Instead, the damage was done by an excavator who had initially cleared, leveled or landscaped the wooded lot. For a long time, the tree looked like it would survive, but the trunk damage has resulted in limb die-back. And, the root damage means that the towering specimen is supported by less than half of its original structural roots. Only now is the tree is telling its secrets, but they are as relevant today as a newspaper article on the impending computer crisis to be caused by Y2K. (Incidentally, Y2K was about when the tree was damaged). So what do the secret-keeping characteristics of trees mean to tree managers and homeowners? From a liability perspective, trees usually keep secrets longer than a realistic statute of limitations. Consequently, the burden of scruple falls on the tree manager. In other words, in the short term, one tree company’s work may not seem to have different results from another. (“They hacked the tree, but to my surprise, it came back nicely.”) However, in the long term, a tree’s best chance for survival comes when it receives care from the most scrupulous of handlers. This especially includes all construction workers who may dig, park, redirect water, clean equipment, etc. anywhere near a tree. For a 30” diameter tree, nothing should be done within a 30foot radius of the trunk.

The phrase (and others like it), “dead men tell no tales” has been around for thousands of years. The idea is that even the “looselipped” don’t betray hints once they die. But how about trees? How long do trees keep secrets? The answer, for unscrupulous—or more likely uneducated—business persons, is, “just long enough.” By that, I mean decline and death in trees is a slow enough process that the “offender” usually has not only cashed his or her paycheck, but also spent it as well, long before any signs of trouble show up. When I am consulting on a declining tree, I regularly ask if the site has been disturbed recently. Usually I have to ask the question a second time before making any progress: “Oh, well about four or five years ago, we had a sewer line replaced, but ...” I can interrupt at this point: “but the lawn was repaired and the tree didn’t die—that was years ago.” Last weekend I consulted on a towering cherry tree for a new homeowner. The tree presents a significant risk for those who will be in this backyard or neighboring backyards and must be taken down. The cost for take-down will be astronomical. When was the damage done? Not by the previous homeowner, who had livedDigital & Open Fit Hearing Aids100 LONESOME ROAD, OLD FORGE 570-457-5268 • www.bloominidiotsgarden.com6 THE TRIBORO BANNERCan trees keep secrets?FREEGreat selection of houseplants and succulents!WE DELIVER!

By using those skills, she created her own company and began building for New York City’s elite. Often the only woman in the room, she’s faced sexism, corruption and harassment, but armed with her designer hard hat and steeltoed stilettos, she’s up for any challenge. Bridget figured out quickly she had to be 10 times better just to be considered equal.

She doesn’t fit in the world of her extravagantly wealthy clients nor with the powerful men in commercial real estate and construction.
