To the editor: I want to clear up some things printed in The News-Item article on Thursday, Oct. 13.

I did mention, when I addressed council, that former Councilman Clarence Deitrich was very instrumental in securing the $40,000 DCNR grant for the playground. It was Clarence who was in charge of grants for the borough who informed me about the DCNR monies.
