SCRANTON -- A park in Scranton marked a major milestone on Sunday.

The Lackawanna County commissioners, former commissioners, and other officials were on hand to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the dedication of McDade Park in Scranton.

The park was dedicated as The Joseph M. McDade Recreational Park on July 30, 1977.  McDade served in Congress for nearly four decades.

The park offers plenty of recreational activities including sports, playgrounds, and walking paths.

    McDade was seen “masturbating on the beach and by the pool area of the hotel” by three witnesses on one day last month, according to police reports.
    The Naples (Fla.) News reports that three police complainants detailed similar scenarios. The first witness said she saw McDade masturbating 10 to 15 feet away from her. The second said McDade followed his wife from the beach while masturbating, while the third said McDade watched her leave her lawn chair at the beach, and proceeded to follow her while masturbating, according to reports.
