WILKES-BARRE – Police have finished searching a 2006 Ford F350 and released it on Friday as they continue to seek data from a global positioning satellite unit to determine if the large pickup truck was traveling on Hazle Avenue at the time Rebecca McCallick was struck by a vehicle. McCallick, 19, died after being hit outside of her apartment at 199 Hazle Ave. at about 2:23 a.m. on July 24. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and sped away. See TRUCK, Page 12A

Campers at the Wonderful World of Water Camp march toward Huntsville Creek at the Lands at Hillside Farms Friday morning. Campers explored the creek and learned about the relationship between living things and water quality.

Waters of learning By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

KINGSTON TWP. – Curiosity took hold of the children as they crowded around a plastic bin swimming with aquatic life. “What’s that thing with the claw?” “Do catfish bite?” “I touched a crayfish; it feels so weird!” The children, campers at the Wonderful World of Water Camp at The Lands at Hillside Farms, had scooped the creatures from nearby Huntsville Creek, turning over stones and flushing them into waiting nets. They hoped to discover whether the creek’s waters were pristine or pollut-

Private and religious schools in Luzerne County have responded quickly to take advantage of the state’s new “Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit” program. Ten schools have agreed to accept students who qualify for scholarships, and three scholarship organizations have been created to collect money from businesses and dole it out as scholarships. With the start of school close, using the new program to help students this year will likely be tough, but not impossible. “It’s a very compressed timeline,” MMI President Thomas Hood said about the Freeland school’s quick action in setting up a scholarship organization, soliciting contributions and trying to lure students. “We are out talking to businesses that want to participate.” “There’s only two weeks to go before school starts,” Wyoming Seminary spokeswoman Gail Smallwood said, “We need to see who is going to make contributions to our school and see how much money they are going to contribute.” Nonprofit foundations MMI and Wyoming Seminary set up nonprofit foundations to collect funds for the program.

POLICE BLOTTER LAUREL RUN – An alert off-duty police officer led state police to the capture of a suspected car thief. Trooper Jesse Knott said in a press release that an offduty WilkesBarre police officer spotted a gold 2003 Ford Taurus, which the Rev. James CorderoDrucker, 70, Lantigua of Hazleton, had reported stolen, stuck on the side of Laurel Run Road at about 6 a.m. Friday. The driver fled into a wooded area alongside the road. Based on a description from the Wilkes-Barre officer, Knott located the suspect, identified as Tomas Cordero-Lantigua, about one mile west of the vehicle. Knott found Drucker’s cellphone, money and rosary in Cordero-Lantigua’s pockets, Knott said. Cordero-Lantigua admitted to drinking alcoholic beverages and stealing Drucker’s car, Knott said. Cordero-Lantigua, 21, of Shenandoah, was taken into custody and charged with theft of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, theft from a motor vehicle, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and driving with a suspended license, Knott said. Cordero-Lantigua was arraigned before District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre

The Associated Press

TOBYHANNA — Police say they’re investigating the fatal shootings of two men whose bodies were discovered in a township park in northeastern Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. Pocono Mountain Regional Police say an officer discovered the bodies early Friday morning in a park in Coolbaugh Township, Monroe County. One body

was found beside a car that was parked off a road in the park.The bodies were found around 2 a.m. while the officer was on patrol. One man’s body was inside a car in a parking lot. The other body was found just outside the vehicle. Coroner Bob Allen says the men had likely been shot at the scene sometime Thursday night. Autopsies are scheduled for today.

Charles Helfrich August 16, 2012 harles (Chick) Helfrich passed away on Thursday, August 16, C 2012, at the age of 73.

Charles was a Hanover Area graduate, class of 1956. He lived his entire life in Lee Park, located in Hanover Township. He was a son of the late Bernard and Katherine (Kitty) Brennan Helfrich. He and his wife, the former Sandra Vitale Helfrich, celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary. He was preceded in death by his sister, Jean Allen. In addition to his wife, he is survived by daughter, Gina Symons; son-in-law, Gary Symons; brothers, James Helfrich, Bernard (Barry) Helfrich and his companion Marie Kabosky; sister-in-law, Naomi Helfrich; many nieces and nephews. Charles was known throughout Lee Park as “Chick.” His sister, Jean Allen, gave him his nickname. They lived their entire married lives on Boland Ave, Lee Park. Chick was in the bar and grill business for approximately 50 years. All of his bars were named “Chick’s” and were located in Lee Park, Hanover Township. Chick’s hobbies were traveling to all the high school wrestling matches, sports events, especially football, and his favorite pastime, vacationing in Las Vegas. He loved his Lincolns and Cadillacs, but the Lincoln was his favorite. They had to be cleaned and polished. He enjoyed going for rides in the country and eating at nice restaurants. The family would like to thank Dr. Chittalia, Mary Patara, her staff, Dr. Brady and staff for everything they did for Chick to help him through all the difficult times. They would also like to thank Hospice Community Care and their staff members, registered nurse Andree and Holly, his aide. Special thanks to Robert McDade, Chick’s caregiver and long-time friend. Chick was brave and courageous with his terminal illnesses.

The family would like to thank all of the loyal customers that stayed with him until the end. He truly loved and enjoyed his time with each one of you and especially during his last time here in life. You were his family and a piece of his life that was very dear to him. He has left an imprint, not only on our family’s hearts, but also on everyone’s heart that ever met him. Chick was a special man who never allowed difficulties to weigh him down. He showed people he was funny, honest, giving, loving, humorous and a human being. Sandie, Gina and Gary will truly miss and love Chick more than words can be spoken or written and will be waiting until they are all reunited as a family again. He worked hard all of his life. May he rest in peace.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Amateur cave explorers have found a new family of spiders in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon, and scientists have dubbed it Trogloraptor — Latin for cave robber — for their fearsome front claws. The spelunkers sent specimens to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, which has the West Coast’s largest collection of spiders. Entomologists there say the spider — reddish brown and the size of a half dollar — evolved so distinctly that it requires its own taxonomic family — the first new spider family found in North America since the 1870s. “It took us a long time to figure out what it wasn’t,” said Charles Griswold, curator of arachnids at the academy. “Even longer to figure out what it is. We used anatomy. We used DNA to understand its evolutionary place. Then we consulted other experts all over the world about what this was. They all concurred with our opinion that this was something completely new to science.” “It’s a good example of how science works — professional and citizen scientists share information,” he added. The discovery is described in the Friday online edition of the journal ZooKeys. Jonathan Coddington, curator of arachnids at the Smithsonian Institution and associate director for science at the National Museum of Natural History, agreed that the spiders represent a family never seen before. “This is really a distinct event,” he said. “To walk out in the woods and find an example of an ancient lineage that no one has ever seen before is special.” Norman I. Platnick, curator emeritus of spiders at the American Museum of Natural History, said the discovery was as exciting to spider scientists as the discov-

ery of a new dinosaur to paleontologists. “Because it belongs to one of the more primitive groups of true spiders, it has the potential to change many of our current ideas about the early evolution of spiders,” he said. “But it is better than a fossil, because we can study the entire organism, along with its behavior and physiology, not just those aspects that happen to have been fossilized.” Coddington said caves tend to keep primitive species from evolving, because they are sheltered from climatic and other changes. “Once you figure out a lifestyle, you can just do it for millions of years,” he said. The Oregon spider’s species name — marchingtoni — honors Deschutes County sheriff’s Deputy Neil Marchington, who was on the first Western Cave Conservancy expedition in 2010 to inventory the critters in a cave on private land outside Grants Pass. A year later he led academy scientists to the site to collect live specimens. “A lot of times, caves are very unique ecosystems, and what we find in there can be very special,” said Marchington from the jail in

Bend where he works. “At other times, they can be completely normal.” He said about a dozen of them collected bugs from the walls and ceiling of the cave and put them in vials of preservative, then sent them down to the academy. “We don’t know exactly how they work yet,” Griswold said of the spiders. “We’ve seen these spiders alive. But we haven’t seen them eat anything yet. They are very shy. “They make a little web, but hang under this web. They hang some of their legs out in space. This is all in the dark in a cave. We think the legs are stretched out waiting for something to come by, like a fly, and when it hits the legs, the claws may just snap shut.” Though scientists built a small artificial cave for the spiders in their lab, the spiders would not eat any of the insects, and died. Griswold said new families of spiders are described around the world every 20 years or so, but the last ones to be found in North America date to the 1870s, when two families of desert spiders were found in Southern California, Arizona and Mexico, and another was found in the Appalachian Mountains.

Autistic man denied heart transplant By MATT MOORE and KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania woman whose autistic adult son was not recommended for a heart transplant said she wants to bring more attention to the decision-making process so that those withailmentsordisabilitiesarenot passedoverwithoutcarefulconsideration. Karen Corby said Thursday that her son, Paul, now 23, was denied a heart transplant from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania last summer over what it said were concerns about his “psychiatric issues” and “autism,” among other

factors. One expert on medical ethics saidit’slegitimateforthemotherto raise the point, but there’s an even bigger one, too. “The thing to keep in mind is if more of us would sign donor cards, there would be less pressure to reject anybody. It’s the huge shortage of hearts that really drives this problem,” said Arthur Caplan, head of the Division of Medical Ethics at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. Paul Corby was recommended for the procedure because he was born with left ventricular noncompaction, a congenital disorder that left part of his heart less able to

pump blood through his body. He was diagnosed with the ailment in 2008.HewasreferredtoPennMedicinein2011todiscussatransplant. In a letter, dated June 13, 2011, Dr. Susan Brozena wrote: “I have recommended against transplant given his psychiatric issues, autism,thecomplexityoftheprocess, multiple procedures and the unknown and unpredictable effect of steroids on behavior.” His mother said she was taken aback by the decision and noted thatherson,whoisdiagnosedwith Pervasive Developmental Disorder, was upset by the decision, but optimistic that a transplant could come.

More space and features The $28 million renovation and expansion has made the old school almost invisible, as capacity is ramped up from about 600 to roughly 1,200 students. The school is split into two sections, one for “primary grades” which the district defines and kindergarten through second and another for “intermediate grades” three through five. Each section will have its own music room, art room and computer lab. There’s a new gym with a floor that gleams like polished glass (“this is better than some high school gym floors,” Suppon quipped), while the old gym has been converted to a cafeteria/auditorium … though the wooden floor with the foul line markings remains.

LARKSVILLE– Some walls remain unpainted, some doors remain unhinged and some rooms are unlit. Rolled carpeting sits in corners while classrooms and hallways are crammed with stacked desks and chairs. School supplies are wrapped in plastic atop pallets. And yet Wyoming Valley West Superintendent Chuck Suppon confidently predicts the new and improved State Street Elementary school will be ready for students Sept. 4. “Will it be 100 percent complete? No,” Suppon said during a tour of the building Friday. “But the classrooms will be done and the building will be safe to use.” Considering the bulk of remaining work appears to be cosmetic, and that contractors are pouring 120 to 140 people

Suppon expects students will be getting cold lunches prepared at the high school through September until the

kitchen is up and running, but that’s nothing new. The two schools that were closed as a result of the State Street expansion – Pringle Street and Main Street – did not have real kitchens. “This will be a full-service kitchen,” Suppon said standing in the room that still lacked the key features: Ovens and See SCHOOL, Page 12A

Ex-county dog handler sues for animal costs John Petrovich was one of 50 county workers cut as an economy measure. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A former canine handler laid off from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in March is suing for overtime pay he contends is owed for caring for the dog while he was not on duty, according to lawsuit filed Friday in federal court. Joseph Petrovich of Butler Township said he is due $71,059 in compensation, $17,764 in damages plus interest, attorney’s fees and other costs. Petrovich, who was among the more than 50 people whose jobs were cut as a cost-saving measure, said the county’s pol-

icy of refusing to pay overtime violated federal and state labor laws and demanded a jury trial, according to the suit filed against the county in U.S. District Court, Scranton. A call placed to county solicitor Vito DeLuca was not returned. The money is owed from a four-year period when Petrovich was employed as a lieutenant at the prison and the month he took care of the German shepherd Rocky after he was let go on March 1, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court, Scranton. Petrovich said he bought the dog on April 23 after the county refused to take it back. The dog went through rehabilitation and intensive training to recover from a hearing loss in 2008 after his former han-

dler fired a high-powered rifle too close to the animal, according to Times Leader archives. Rocky and other dogs in the unit were trained in drug detection and used to quell disturbances. The suit listed Petrovich’s annual salary and overtime: Feb. 11, 2008 to June 9, 2011 he was paid $53,281 a year or $25.62 an hour and $38.43 overtime rate equal to one and a half times the regular hourly rate; June 9 2011 to Jan. 1 of this year his salary was $55,637, hourly rate $26.75 and overtime $40.12; Jan. 1 through March 1 his salary was $57,307, hourly rate $27.55 and overtime $41.33. Petrovich said he spent at least seven hours a week caring for the dog in addition to his 40-hour work week. He also was not compensated for the animal’s care during his annual leave, according to the suit.

NANTICOKE – Two area police departments received nearly $80,000 in grants to purchase patrol vehicles through a federal program for small town and rural communities. Nanticoke and Plymouth each were awarded the funds through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Each municipality will buy a sport utility vehicle and car for its department and replace aging vehicles. Nanticoke received $38,400 and $38,660 went to Plymouth from the USDA’s Rural Development Community Facilities program. “They are much needed and our department is well deserving” of the funds, said Nanticoke Mayor Joseph Dougherty during a press conference Friday morning outside the city’s fire headquarters on East Ridge Street. One of the vehicles, a 2013 Ford Escape, was parked in front of the fire station. The city expects to receive a new Ford Taurus soon and replace “what we need to” among its four marked vehicles, Police Chief William Shultz said. Plymouth also has ordered its vehicles to upgrade the pool of four marked vehicles. “This was an unexpected pleasure but it’s much needed. Our cruisers are in very poor condition,” Mayor Dorothy Petrosky said. “Our cruisers are getting a little old. This is coming at a great time. We’ve been having problems in Plymouth, which we’re working at correcting, and this money is sorely, sorely needed,” Plymouth Council President Frank Coughlin added. He thanked the federal and state lawmakers who helped with the funding. The USDA provides 55 percent of the cost of the vehicles and the municipalities are responsible for the other 45 percent. Tom Williams, a Nanticoke native and USDA Rural Development state program director, acknowledged people would question why the department is involved with police cars. “The Rural Development agency is the prime financer of rural infrastructure in Pennsylvania and in the country,” Williams See GRANTS, Page 12A

Medicare is focus of campaign

BOSTON — The jobs-and-economy election suddenly seems all about Medicare — for now, at least. Republican Mitt Romney is embracing a topic his party usually approaches gingerly. He is taking a calculated risk that voters’ worries about federal deficits and the Democrats’ health care overhaul have opened the door for a robust debate on the solvency of Medicare, the insurance program for retirees. President Barack Obama is welcoming the conversation, which has temporarily taken attention from the weak economic recovery. One party may regret its position on Nov. 6. Retirees in politically prized states such as Florida have often resisted changes in Medicare, one of the govern-

ment’s most popular but costliest programs. But GOP strategists say today’s voters realize Medicare spending must be constrained, and Romney is banking on disenchantment with Obama’s 2010 health care law to pave the way for his own proposals. Romney, who has spent more than a year running almost entirely on the economy and jobs, put Medicare at the campaign’s center when he chose as his running mate. Rep. Paul Ryan is Congress’ chief advocate of significantly restraining entitlement programs. Ryan did not address his Medicare

plan at a campaign stop in Glen Allen, Va., on Friday, a break from the previous day’s events in Ohio, where the issue figured prominently in his remarks. But the Wisconsin congressman is expected to revisit Medicare in some depth in Florida on Saturday. He will face voters in a retirement community north of Orlando known as The Villages. Ryan’s 78year-old mother, a Medicare recipient, plans to attend. “We will not duck the tough issues; we will lead,” Ryan told the Virginia crowd. Romney’s willingness to tackle the is-

sue was underscored Thursday when he used a marker and classroom-type whiteboard to summarize his thoughts on Medicare, with hardly a word about the unemployment rate. He said his plans would keep Medicare solvent while Obama’s would not, a claim Democrats call absurd. On Friday, summarizing the political view from the right, the Romney campaign distributed a Wall Street Journal editorial that declared: “By governing so far to the left, Mr. Obama may have neutralized ‘Mediscare’ and made voters more receptive to center-right solutions. Medicare is already changing because it must.” Obama’s campaign has tried for months to tie Romney to House Republicans and Ryan’s budget proposal, which would turn Medicare into a voucher-like system for future retirees. The Obama campaign released a new TV ad Friday defending the president’s record on Medicare. It points to the AARP, a group that represents senior citizens and said in a letter to lawmakers earlier this year that Ryan’s plan would lead to higher costs for seniors.

Jobless figures rise in 44 states

93 people and wounded many more, as the extent of the violence grew clearer and mourners began to bury their dead. It was Iraq’s second deadliest day since U.S. troops left in December, surpassed only by a coordinated wave of killings last month. Thursday’s attacks seemed meant to strike fear in Iraqis and undermine faith in the Shiite-led government’s security measures, ahead of what was supposed to be a festive holiday weekend. Since the beginning of August, more than 190 people have been killed in violence across Iraq, showing that insurgents led by al-Qaida’s Iraqi franchise remain a lethal force eight months after the last U.S. troops left the country.

Poor figures in swing states could pose a political problem for President Obama.

RIO DE JANEIRO

Dealers say no to crack

Business was brisk in the Mandela shantytown on a recent night. In the glow of a weak light bulb, customers pawed through packets of powdered cocaine and marijuana priced at $5, $10, $25. Teenage boys with semiautomatic weapons took in money and made change while flirting with girls in belly-baring tops lounging nearby. Next to them, a gaggle of kids jumped on a trampoline, oblivious to the guns and drug-running that are part of everyday life in this and hundreds of other slums, known as favelas, across this metropolitan area of 12 million people. Conspicuously absent from the scene was crack, the most addictive and destructive drug in the triad that fuels Rio’s lucrative narcotics trade. The dealers themselves have stopped selling the drug in Mandela and nearby Jacarezinho in a move that traffickers and others say will spread citywide. NASHVILLE, TENN.

Airborne marks anniversary

After months of grueling road marches through the north Georgia mountains, a group of elite paratroopers had to put their training to the test in a trial by fire. They leapt from an airplane, bullets whizzing past parachutes and shrapnel pelting the plane’s side panels. Ed Shames was among them. Now 90, Shames was 19 when he signed up for new parachute units created by military leaders who wanted a quicker, more aggressive unit that could sneak behind enemy lines in Europe. This week, thousands of active-duty soldiers and veterans are gathering at Fort Campbell, Ky., to honor the 101st Airborne Division that was created 70 years ago, even as its current soldiers prepare to leave for Afghanistan.

Clinic charges dismissed

A Kansas prosecutor on Friday dropped all remaining criminal charges against a Kansas City-area Planned Parenthood clinic accused of performing illegal abortions, ending what was believed to be the first attempt in the U.S. to prosecute a facility affiliated with the group. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced that 32 misdemeanor charges against the clinic had been dismissed. Those charges were the last part of a criminal case filed in 2007 by Howe’s predecessor. Howe said in a statement that “extensive research” by his office determined the clinic’s practices were “within accepted practices in the medical community.”

Syria fighting nears key airport With Kofi Annan ending his efforts, the U.N. names a new peace envoy to seek a diplomatic solution.

By BRIAN MURPHY Associated Press

BEIRUT — Government troops fought back rebels near the airport of battlescarred Aleppo, Syria’s state media said Friday, in the first official acknowledgement combat had neared a strategic gateway to the country’s largest city. As fighting raged in both Aleppo and the Syrian capital Damascus, the United Nations announced that Lakhdar Brahimi, a former Algerian foreign minister and veteran U.N. diplomat, would serve as the world body’s new peace envoy, aim-

ing to resume efforts for a diplomatic solution to what has become an intractable civil war. Brahimi, who previously served as envoy to Iraq and Afghanistan, replaces former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who announced he would leave the post by the end of this month after failing to bring about a cease-fire despite months of negotiations. The announcement came just as U.N. observers in Syria were beginning to pack their things on Friday in preparation to close down their mission. Deployment of the observers was one of the only steps taken under Annan’s peace plan. The team was intended to watch over a ceasefire that never took hold, and so was left trying to chronicle some of the more egregious instances of bloodshed. Both sides have “chosen the path of

war,” said the U.N.’s assistant secretarygeneral for peacekeeping, Edmond Mulet. The U.N. plans to keep a small liaison office to support any future peace efforts. The 17-month-old conflict between President Bashar Assad’s regime and rebels trying to bring him down has left some 20,000 people dead, according to estimates by anti-Assad activists. The escalating fight has in the past two months turned to battles in the country’s two main cities, Damascus and Aleppo — once firm bastions of Assad’s rule. Rebels have managed to keep fighting in both cities despite facing overwhelming regime firepower. In Damascus, activists reported heavy shelling and clashes in many areas Friday, including western districts believed to have rebel pockets.

Russian punk rockers are sentenced to jail Women arrested after guerrilla performance in Moscow’s main cathedral. By NATALIYA VASILYEVA Associated Press

MOSCOW — A Moscow judge sentenced three members of the provocative punk band Pussy Riot to two years in prison on hooliganism charges on Friday following a trial seen around the world as an emblem of Russia’s intolerance of dissent. The trial inspired a wave of small but raucous protests across Europe and North America in support of the feminist rockers, who have been dubbed prisoners of conscience by Amnesty International. Hundreds of Pussy Riot supporters waiting outside the Moscow courtroom

chanted “down with the police state” when the sentence was announced. Dozens were detained, including several opposition leaders. The three women were arrested in March after a guerrilla performance in Moscow’s main cathedral where they high-kicked and danced while singing a “punk prayer” pleading with the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Vladimir Putin, who was elected to a third term as Russia’s president two weeks later. Judge Marina Syrova said in her verdict that the band members “committed hooliganism driven by religious hatred.” She rejected the women’s arguments that they were protesting the Orthodox Church’s support for Putin and didn’t intend to offend religious believers.

WASHINGTON — Unemployment rates rose in 44 U.S. states in July, the most states to show a monthly increase in more than three years and a reflection of weak hiring nationwide. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates fell in only two states and were unchanged in four. Unemployment rates rose in nine states that are considered battlegrounds in the presidential election. That trend, if it continued, could pose a threat to President Barack Obama’s re-election bid in less than three months. Nationwide, hiring improved in July after three months of tepid job gains. But the national unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent. Monthly job gains have averaged 150,000 this year. That’s barely enough to accommodate population growth. As a result, the unemployment rate is the same as when the year began. Still, 31 states gained jobs in July, while 19 lost them. Unemployment rates can rise in a state even when more jobs are created if more people start looking for work. People who are out of work are counted as unemployed only if they’re looking for a job. In the most closely contested states in the presidential race, unemployment has fallen over the past year. That could help Obama in his contest with GOP candidate Mitt Romney. But it has started to tick up in recent months. In Nevada, the rate rose to 12 percent in July from 11.6 percent the previous month. That’s the highest rate in the nation, though it’s still much lower than a year ago, when it was 13.8 percent. And in Michigan, the rate has increased to 9 percent, from 8.5 percent two months earlier. Unemployment also increased in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, Wisconsin and New Hampshire. The rate was unchanged at 7.2 percent in Ohio, the only swing state that didn’t suffer an increase. Still, that rate is down sharply from 8.9 percent a year ago. Most competitive states have unemployment rates below the national level, so even recent increases may not have a large impact on voter sentiment.

Scollo takes issue with defense vote

10th Congressional candidate’s mailer blasts bill jeopardizing Tobyhanna. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

It’s not uncommon for labor unions to endorse Democratic candidates, but when a Republican congressman votes on a bill that could put union jobs at the region’s largest employer in jeopardy, workers take a stance. 2012 U.S. Rep. Tom ELECTION Marino, R-Lycoming Township, voted July 19, along with 224 other GOP House members and101Democrats, in favor of the Department of Defense appropriations bill for fiscal year 2012-13. U.S. Reps. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, and Tim Holden, D-St. Clair, also voted for the bill. The $606 billion defense bill could call for cuts at the Tobyhanna Army Depot, which employs 5,400, making the installation Northeastern Pennsylvania’s largest employer. Workers there are drawn from an 11-county area but Lackawanna (1,998) and Luzerne (1,409) are the two counties where the most employees live. The10th District, which Marino represents, now includes portions of both counties but will only include a smaller portion of Lackawanna starting next year because of redistricting. Marino’s opponent, Phil Scollo, a Democratic businessman from Dingman Township in Pike County, sent mailers out this week to congressional district residents highlighting Marino’s vote. He also touted his recently secured endorsement from the American Federation of Government Employees Third District. The third district encompasses all of Pennsylvania and Delaware and its Local 1647 represents employees at the army depot. Efforts to reach local union officials, who are at a national convention in Las Vegas, were unsuccessful. “I’m proud to have the support of AFGE’s working families and retirees,” Scollo said. “Their work at Tobyhanna is critical to our region’s economy and our national security, and those jobs must be protected. Tom Marino doesn’t agree and he needs to be replaced.” That’s a statement Marino scoffed at in an emailed statement received Friday. “There is probably not a single member of Congress who wants to cut funding for these facilities, and that is why Appropriations Committee leaders pledged on the floor to make sure changes are made so

The reconfigured 10th District includes all or parts of the following 15 counties: Monroe, Columbia, Lackawanna, Sullivan, Wayne, Susquehanna, Pike, Bradford, Tioga, Lycoming, Union, Snyder, Mifflin, Juniata, and Perry.

that adequate funding can be provided before the bill becomes law,” Marino said. “Knowing that the issue had been worked out satisfactorily, I was happy to support the measure ….” He said his recent actions show his support for the workers at the depot. “I have recently led an effort to preserve 30 jobs at Tobyhanna that the Army has proposed moving to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois and am planning to visit with Tobyhanna officials in September.”

Irish honor goes to woman with local ties Meghan Davis, formerly of Dallas, bests rivals in Ireland to take a prestigious title. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

DALLAS – Meghan from Dallas is now Mary from Dungloe. Meghan Davis, 26, a native of Dallas who now lives in Norristown, recently won the Mary from Dungloe title at the 45th annual competition in Ireland. Of the 10 contestants that advanced to the finals, Davis became just the sixth Irish-American to win. Davis was one of three contestants from the United States – the other seven were from Ireland. “I was stunned,” Davis said when she heard her name announced as the winner. “I really didn’t expect it at all.” On the contest’s website, the announcement of Davis’ crown-

Davis

ing stated: “Meghan charmed the judges and locals with her charming personality and graceful beauty. Congratula-

tions Meghan.” A graduate of the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins and the Boyer College of Music at Temple University, Davis holds two degrees, in harp and vocal performance and also a master’s in vocal performance. She traces her Irish roots to Cork and Mayo counties in Ireland. Contestants came from across Ireland, London and the U.S. for the international festival that began in 1967. Davis, daughter of Dwight and Molly Davis of Pioneer Avenue in Dallas, works as a freelance musician and vocalist. She

teaches music, plays in an Irish band and sings in a professional church choir. In 1990, when she was 4 years old, Davis traveled to Ireland for the Mary from Dungloe contest. Her aunt, Julieann Monaghan Gorman of Wilkes-Barre (now living in Connecticut) had won the “Mary of Wilkes-Barre” contest and a group followed her to the international competition. Gorman didn’t win, but the trip left a lasting impression on Davis. “That’s when I saw harps for the first time and I knew I wanted to learn how to play one,” she said. And now Davis has come full circle – she has learned to play the harp and she has won the coveted crown that escaped her aunt. Davis won the Mary from Philadelphia contest to earn her trip to Ireland. Davis said the criteria to enter

the contest included being of Irish descent and showing qualities of kindness and generosity which represent what Mary from Dungloe was like. Beauty counts “to some extent,” as does talent, but it’s not a requirement. Contestants don’t have to speak or perform, but most do; Davis played the harp and sang “Ave Maria.” She was crowned with a Waterford tiara and received other gifts, prizes and 1,000 euros, equivalent to about $1,230. Davis will return to Ireland next year for the contest, where she will crown her successor. She also is thinking about attending St. Patrick’s Day parades in cities like New York. In addition to her parents, eight other family members and friends traveled to Ireland to watch the contest. “It was a great experience,” Davis said.

Vote-law plaintiff finally gets her ID PHILADELPHIA — A plaintiff in a lawsuit seeking to overturn Pennsylvania’s tough new voter identification law has received the state-issued photo ID card necessary to vote, despite saying she’d been rejected for years because she lacked appropriate documentation to receive the card. Viviette Applewhite, who recalled marching for voting rights in 1960 with Martin Luther King Jr., was issued the temporary card on Thursday, the same day lawyers for her and others opposing the law appealed a judge’s refusal to halt the law from taking effect in the Nov. 6 presidential election. Applewhite, 93, had trouble meeting the state’s documentation requirements to get a photo ID. For one thing, she did not have a Social Security card after it was stolen with her purse some years ago, she has said. Plus, she was adopted early in life, making the name on her birth certificate different from that on her other paperwork, and she did not have a record of the adoption. PennDOT’s licensing bureau director Janet Dolan said Friday that clerks are able to make exceptions to the document requirements and work with applicants. “You just have to keep trying,” Applewhite said. “Don’t give up.”

VETERANS COMMITTEE PLANS PARADE

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A man facing charges he allegedly shot a mentally challenged person with a pellet gun was arraigned Friday on new charges he sexually assaulted a girl. Matthew Brill, 21, of Center Street, Wilkes-Barre, was arraigned by District Judge Rick Cronauer on charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault, indecent assault and indecent exposure. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Police received a report in May from Luzerne County Children and Youth Services that a girl claimed she was sexually assaulted. The girl was residing on Parrish Street when she alleged Brill forced her to perform sex acts in a bathroom. Police allege in the complaint the lewd acts occurred at least five times in 2008 and 2009. Brill was questioned by police on June 16. He initially denied having any sexual contact with the girl but later admitted it may have happened one time, according to the complaint. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Aug. 23 in WilkesBarre Central Court. Newport Township police previously charged Brill with simple assault and reckless endangerment after he allegedly shot a mentally challenged man in the ear with a pellet gun on East Main Street on March 11, according to arrest records. Brill claimed the pellet ricocheted. Court records also show Brill was sentenced on May 11 to six months probation on charges of theft and receiving stolen property.

Pennsylvania could have an additional $28.5 million to spend on infrastructure projects if state officials tap into more than $473 million in unspent earmarks the U.S. Department of Transportation announced Friday it will make available. States must identify projects they plan to use the funds for by Oct. 1, and must obligate them by Dec. 31. PennDOT District 4 spokesman Michael Taluto said the news is so new that no decisions have been made as to how the state might use its share or whether Northeastern Pennsylvania will see any of it. There was one local project on the list of those allocated funding that was never used – the long-stalled South Valley Expressway project near Nanticoke, which was budgeted for $742,500 in 2006. Taluto said it’s unclear whether that project, which is still in the planning stages and has a price tag of more than $35 million, would receive any of the state’s share. In total, there were 27 projects totaling $28.5 million that Pennsylvania was allocated but never used. The release of funds was touted by the White House and administration officials including President Barack Obama and Transpor-

tation Secretary Ray LaHood as a job-creating move. “We’re releasing these funds so Pennsylvania can get down to the business of moving transportation projects forward and putting our friends and neighbors back to work,” said LaHood in a statement. The $473 million in highway earmarks from fiscal years 20032006 appropriations acts remain unspent today. Those acts contain provisions that authorize the Transportation secretary to make the unused funds available for eligible surface transportation projects, which LaHood said he is taking advantage of. The department said state departments of transportation will be able to use their unspent earmarked highway funds, some of which are nearly 10 years old, on any eligible highway, transit, passenger rail or port project. If a state does not meet the Dec. 31 deadline, funds will be proportionally redistributed in fiscal year 2013 to states that met the deadline. This will generate projects over the next few months, months that include the run up to the Nov. 6 presidential election, something the campaign for Obama’s Republican opponent took issue with.

P

atricia A. Behm, 74, of Crystal Ridge, Hazle Township, died Wednesday morning, August 15, 2012, at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township. She was born in Hazleton, a daughter of the late Chester and Frances (Comshick) Mistal. She was a member of Holy Name of Jesus Parish at the Church of the Transfiguration, West Hazleton. Pat enjoyed many things throughout her life of 74 years. Dancing as a young woman in glitzy dresses and, at times, entering a dance contest or two. Although she still loved to dance, as she aged, the pace began to slow. She played a mean game of pinochle, and was often sought out as a prime partner. Later, pinochle would be replaced with a fast game of bing. Her favorite place at home was sitting on her porch swing enjoying the warmth of the sun while looking at the flowers in her yard. As college football season began, you would find her glued to her television, watching her favorite team, Penn State. She loved to talk with family and friends daily on the phone, but never during mealtimes, the 6 o’clock news, Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy. Pat’s greatest love was her family. She felt such joy laughing and joking with all of her family, but there was no greater joy than watching the smiles and hearing the laughter of the children. She believed in the forgiveness of God and was comforted by her faith in knowing he had prepared a place for her in his home. She was preceded in death, in addition to her parents, by son, Mark DeFrancisco; daughter Suzzane DeFrancisco; and brother, Gerald Mistal. Patricia is survived by her children, Robert, Hazleton; Francine Lamont, Shavertown; Jennifer Bra-

dy and husband, Robert, Drums; four grandchildren, Christian Lamont, Abbey Novotny, Nicole Brady, Mason Brady; two great-grandchildren, Lillian Novotny, Dillion Lamont; four brothers, Richard Mistal and wife, Paula, Hazleton; Edward Mistal and his wife, Dr. Deborah Mistal, Drums; Thomas Mistal and wife, Karen, Olyphant; Robert Mistal, Florida; several nieces and nephews. Special thanks to all who helped care for her recently at Smith’s Health Care, Mountain Top Senior Care, and especially Barbara, her home health aide of Comfort Keepers. Your skill, care and compassion were evident and appreciated by all, especially our mother, Pat. She loved you. Funeral services will be held on Monday at 9 a.m. in the Frank J. Bonin Funeral Home Inc., 542 N. Wyoming St., Hazleton. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9:30 a.m. in Holy Name of Jesus Parish at the Church of the Transfiguration, West Green Street, West Hazleton.

Olyphant resident Albert P. (“Aber”) Luchetti died early Friday, August 17, 2012, at the age of 80 after complications from a fall. He leaves the legacy of a devoted husband, father, grandfather, bluecollar stalwart and community volunteer. Although the National Guard and Army weren’t his introduction to leadership – he was president of his class at Olyphant High School – his time in the military provided arguably the most formative years of his life. Two years after he enlisted in the National Guard at the age of 16 in 1948 and joined the 28th Infantry Division, his unit was recalled to active duty and he found himself away from home for an extended period for the first time in his life as a sergeant leading platoons in Indiana and North Carolina. In those years, he cemented the most important relationship of his life by courting his grade-school sweetheart, Marie, who eventually accepted his marriage proposal after he was honorably discharged from the Army. Albert and Marie married in 1954. Although they eventually settled in their hometown of Olyphant, the newlyweds first lived in a number of places around the country while Albert worked in various factories, including a General Motors plant in Ohio and a Curtiss-Wright facility in New Jersey. By the late 1950s, they had settled back in Olyphant and started a family, while he worked for General Dynamics as a machine operator and later toolmaker. A longtime member of the United Auto Workers union, he retired from General Dynamics in 1992. For years, he stayed active in his local community, with organizations such as the American Legion, Boy Scouts and Little League, as well as a longtime reader and volunteer at St. Patrick’s Church in Olyphant. In his retirement, he also spent long stretches directing “Camp Poppop” at his home for his grandchildren. In addition to his wife, Marie, Albert is survived by his sister, Delores Warholic; daughter, Linda Karpovich and her husband, Ed; sons, Kenneth Luchetti, Albert Luchetti and his wife, Mair; daughter, Maria Luchetti Non and her husband, Sergio; grandchildren, Edward (E.J.), Michael, Madison, Taylor; several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother Carlo. Funeral services will be on Tuesday at 9 a.m. from the Hudak-O’Shea Funeral Home Inc., 115 Garfield Ave., Olyphant. Mass will follow at 9:30 a.m. at Holy Cross Parish at St. Patrick’s Church, Delaware Street, Olyphant. Father August A. Ricciardi, godson, will officiate. Interment will follow in the parish cemetery. Military services will be held by American Legion Raymond Henry Post 327, Olyphant.

Mom gets prison for injuring infant Andrea Vargas of West Hazleton accused of shaking her then-5-month-old son. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A West Hazleton woman accused of violently shaking and injuring her then-5-month-old son pleaded no contest Friday to related charges and was sentenced to five to 10 years in state prison. Andrea Vargas, 24, of Tamarack Street, was sentenced by Judge David Lupas on charges of aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of children and reckless endangerment after entering the no-contest plea – meaning she does not challenge the evidence prosecutors have brought against her. Vargas was charged in the February 2011 incident in which prosecutors alleged she shook the boy so violently the child, now 2, requires a respirator to help him breathe and a feeding tube. Prosecutors said that if the child should die, Vargas could face additional charges, including homicide. “The prognosis is not good,” Assistant District Attorney Jarrett Ferentino told Lupas. Vargas’ attorney, William Watt, had requested that his client be released from the county prison and remain free on bail pending a sentencing hearing, but Lupas denied that request. Watt then asked that Vargas be immediately sentenced. Watt said his client wanted to spend some time with family members as they are not able to visit her in prison due to financial and transportation constraints.

Vargas did not speak before being sentenced. Ferentino said Vargas faced a mandatory minimum Vargas of five years in prison on the aggravated assault charge. “She assaulted her child…(who will suffer) for the remainder of his life, however long that is,” Ferentino said in response to Watt’s request to have Vargas released from prison on bail. “This is a horrific crime.” A doctor testified at a May 2011 preliminary hearing that the boy suffered serious brain injuries and that after an examination he discovered previous injuries such as fractured ribs, legs and arms that were in the process of healing. Vargas initially told investigators the infant’s bruises and bone fractures were caused by her 1year-old girl tossing a metal toy car into the crib and hitting the baby. She allegedly admitted to county Detective Lt. Gary Capitano that she violently shook her baby when confronted with other injuries found by the doctor. Capitano testified at the preliminary hearing that Vargas initially said she was watching an NBA basketball game with the biological father, Jorge Robles, on Feb. 3. During halftime, Vargas said, her infant began crying and vomited. Robles came into the room and took hold of the infant as Vargas went into a bathroom. She alleged her infant stopped breathing and Robles performed CPR as Vargas called 911.

Lightning-struck steeple will rise again

Crews begin rebuilding work at St. John’s Lutheran in Wilkes-Barre. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

remember when it was first hit. “Lightning has hit it before,” Isely said. “It was damaged before and it was fixed.” Crews used a crane and a telescopic boom lift to reach the pinnacle that stands 82 feet high from the sidewalk below. A metal bucket attached to the crane was used to lower stones removed by hand to the ground. “There were chips and stone on the sidewalk. We couldn’t leave it the way it was up there,” Isely said. Isely said three or four engineers inspected the damage. There was a concern, Isely said, that the pinnacle could collapse, compelling urgent repairs. “They’re taking it down so it can be restored and we have to go through the whole process again of putting it up there,” Isely said.

WILKES-BARRE – Lightning does strike twice. Academy Street from South River to South Franklin streets was closed Friday as crews removed stones from the steeple at St. John’s Lutheran Church damaged by a lightning strike. Ralph Isely, financial secretary at St. John’s Church, said lightning struck the steeple and pinnacle during a thunderstorm on Aug. 9. There are four pinnacles atop the steeple of the 94-year-old church at Academy and South River streets. Isely said it is the second time lightning has struck the same Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff pinnacle, although he could not writer, may be reached at 829-7196.

T’S NOT AS grand as Yosemite, but the Appalachian Trail – running 2,180 miles from Georgia to Maine, by way of eastern Pennsylvania – is no less important a part of the National Park System. As the founders envisioned back in 1921, some 3 million people a year visit the trail, fulfilling its purpose of providing an escape from the stress of daily life within a day’s drive of major Eastern cities. But no one should take today’s easy access for granted. This week’s 75th anniversary of the trail’s official completion

Ryan will give Romney a boost on 3 strategic fronts THE PAUL Ryan vice presidential pick was a very strategic move on the part of the Mitt Romney campaign. This year’s presidential election will come down to three things: the economy, demographics and fundraising. Obama is obviously weak on the economy but has a strong advantage on demographics – voter support of various groups – that was shown in the last presidential election and is keeping him up in the polls this time. So far, this election has not been about the economy – otherwise Obama would be far down in the polls. Fundraising could end up being the difference between winning and losing. This is where the Ryan strategy comes in. Ryan helps Romney with the economy, demographics and fundraising. First, Ryan is synonymous with economic policy. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Ryan’s ideas, he brings to the campaign a serious debate on the economy. Romney desperately needs to get the political dialogue back to the economy, and Ryan’s selection is designed to do just that. Even more important, the Ryan selection is about demographics. In order for Romney to win in November, he needs to overcome Obama’s demographic advantage – especially his strong support from Latinos, African-Americans, women and youths. The only way to do that is to motivate the

MAIL BAG

JEFFREY BRAUER conservative base to come out in droves in November. Ryan provides that necessary energy with that constituency. He is a conservative rock star. He is the face of the future of the Republican Party. He is the chance to rebrand conservatism in America. This tactic is a throwback to the Karl Rove playbook that successfully elected George W. Bush twice, but especially in 2004. The Bush campaign was able to generate large conservative turnouts – even new voters – particularly through microtargeting that voting bloc. It is a numbers game, and Paul Ryan will be an important part of the equation. Ryan plays very well with the conservative base and will be vital in getting them out to vote, especially in swing states such as Pennsylvania and Ohio. In other words, Ryan was not brought in to win over Democrats and independents – although some national deficit-minded ones will be attracted to him. He was brought in to make voters feel good about the conservative brand and to get large numbers of conservatives to the polls on election night. Since Ryan and Romney agree on almost all policy issues, Ryan doesn’t bring anything new policy-wise to

the ticket that will attract new voters. But what Ryan does do is give more credibility to Romney’s conservativism, which will energize the Republican base for Romney’s campaign. And most important, the Ryan pick is about fundraising. Romney knows he needs to spend big to unseat an incumbent president with high likeability. In order to do so, major fundraising is key. Ryan’s consistent conservativism will open big donor wallets. This makes the Obama campaign the most nervous about the Ryan selection. It is a bit too early to tell if it is a game changer. But Ryan’s selection could prove to change the election from one that is simply a referendum on the president to one that is a choice between two very distinct visions for America. If it is a game changer in that way, it is a big risk on Romney’s part – a risk he might have needed to take since he has been down in the polls. In the end, a choice election will make the campaign season much more interesting and pertinent for all Americans. Jeffrey Brauer is a professor of political science at Keystone College in La Plume.

COMMENTARY

Ryan’s selection could prove to change the election from one that is simply a referendum on the president to one that is a choice between two very distinct visions for America.

he sixth annual Mike Chocallo Memorial Blood Drive held on July 17 yielded 36 units of much needed blood, as well as two red-cell donations. I am grateful for the people who came out to help ensure that there will be lifesaving blood available when it is needed. I know that my husband was smiling down through the holes in the floor of heaven as his family and friends gathered to remember him. The blood drive was a beautiful thing; people of all ages, from all walks of life, with problems of their own, united in the selfless, quiet generosity of sharing. That is something that money cannot buy; it is priceless. I cannot say enough about the volunteers and paid staff who “make the wheels turn” at the blood donation sites. I thank each of them for what they do. A person has only to peruse the newspaper headlines to see that our area is having its problems, but I can tell you that honesty, generosity and patriotism are alive

and well. They are living all around us in the fine people of our Wyoming Valley. People today are, out of necessity, running at full speed to juggle family, work and health concerns. But donating blood takes not even an hour, and there is a blood drive within minutes of almost everyone’s home daily. Many are offering nifty incentives for donors. Please donate blood. You never know whose life might depend on it. This was the first year that I stationed a box at our blood drive to collect much needed and appreciated items for our troops. Due to the overwhelming generosity of donors, I am honored to report that I

ith the barrage of negative political ads we’re about to endure, I’d like to take this opportunity to inject a little positivity into today. The workers at St. John the Baptist Church’s recent bazaar in Larksville deserve a big thank-you for all of their hard work. After a five-hour drive from the Washington, D.C., area to visit my family, my mother and I went to the bazaar on Sunday evening. It’s been several years since I’d been there and it was just as I remembered: fun games, instant bingo and delicious food. The funnel cake and pulled pork were worth the drive. I hope to be able to attend in future years. Great job! Elizabeth Yetter Washington, D.C.

TAX CREDIT Continued from Page 1A

cepting money and doling out scholarships through the similar “Education Improvement Tax Credit” program – approved to serve the same function in the new program. Both programs allow businesses to contribute to a nonprofit organization and receive tax credits for a percentage of the amount donated. The organization then determines criteria for awarding the money as scholarships, following basic state rules. But the EITC program was not linked to public school perform-

ance. The Opportunity Scholarships are available to students who live in the “attendance zone” of public schools on a list of “low achieving” schools drawn up annually by the state. That list is comprised of the bottom 15 percent of schools as measured by state math and reading test results. Locally, two schools in Hazleton Area School District and four in Wilkes-Barre Area made the list this year. In particular, Hazleton Area High School is on the list – a school that has an attendance zone encompassing the entire district. Hood said MMI has received inquiries from parents interested in moving children to the school, though there has to be money to

give out first. He said the school has room for perhaps nine or 10 students. The way the law is written, the scholarships can theoretically be used for students already attending a private or parochial school. Hood said he expects any money from the new program will be used only for new students. Smallwood and Diocese of Scranton spokesman Bill Genello said it could be used for both new and existing students, though Smallwood added this year’s students already have their financial aid set up. “We need to see if we receive any Opportunity Scholarship funds from businesses prior to the beginning of school on Aug. 27,” Smallwood said, “and if so

Campers get a look at Huntsville Creek during the Wonderful World of Water Camp at the Lands at Hillside Farms Friday morning.

WATER Continued from Page 1A

exercise capped off the free, weeklong day camp designed by the Pennsylvania American Water company to encourage children to ponder the effects of human activities like farming and their own behavior on water quality. The 30 children attending the camp participated in a number of hands-on activities throughout the week. They dressed like molecules and darted about to simulate the water cycle, watched chocolate representing waste oil trickle through a mod-

el environment as they misted it with spray bottle “rain” and made tie-dye T-shirts with sulphurous acid-mine water. Camp organizers said they hope the curiosity the children displayed in digging through their surroundings will blossom into a sense of responsibility. “We want kids to realize, if they throw trash down, it’s not just going to stay there; it could wash into a creek,” said Susan Turcmanovich, external affairs manager for the water company. Chet Mozloom, executive director of The Lands at Hillside Farms, said the camp’s focus meshes well with the farm’s mission of teaching and practicing sustainability.

“They’re learning about water quality and how to be responsible citizens,” he said. “You hope that when they’re exposed to that, at least some of them if not all of them walk away caring about their impact on the environment.” One reason the creek passing through Hillside Farms is so clean has to do with the farm’s commitment to sustainable practices. It maintains a 35-foot buffer of vegetation between cattle pastures and the creek, which prevents manure and other nutrients produced by cows from entering the water, and rotates cattle among pastures to avoid tilling soil, which produces sediment. The farm also refrains from using herbicides

and pesticides on crops and uses only natural fertilizers. The message rubbed off on Rowan Ide, 10, of Scranton. “I didn’t think so much about water,” she said. “I told my mom, like when she’s using the toothbrush, don’t turn the water on; turn it off.” Nine-year-old Austin Sowga of Shavertown said he learned more about why it’s important to protect his favorite creek, where he likes to fish with his younger brother Joseph and their father. “Toby Creek is behind my house,” he said. “I get a view of it at night because my window’s right in front of it. I like the environment, and I like being out in nature and in the water.”

State GOP challenges petitions by 2 minor parties By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG— The state Republican Party is challenging petitions by members of the Constitution and Libertarian parties to get their candidates on Pennsylvania’s ballot for president, vice president and a number of other offices.

Police first expressed an interest in the truck, registered to Daniel Loughnane, after McCallick’s boyfriend, John Schenck, identified it as the vehicle that struck McCallick, according to a search warrant affidavit. Police allege they found suspected hair and a bone fragment on the undercarriage and driver’s side wheel and door areas when the truck was searched on Tuesday. An unidentified man arrived at city police headquarters just before 2 p.m. Friday and drove the pickup out of the basement garage 10 minutes later. The man smiled at reporters

Board of Elections. Analysts say Republicans are probably worried that conservatives dissatisfied with their presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, will defect to Constitution or Libertarian party candidates. The issues that tend to attract those two party’s activists, such as limited government, fall along nearly parallel lines as those that attract many Republicans, said Terry Madonna, a professor of public affairs and director of the Center for Opin-

ion Research at Franklin and Marshall College. In the most recent public poll, released Thursday by Franklin and Marshall College, President Barack Obama, a Democrat, is slightly ahead of Romney, 44 percent to 38 percent, with 15 percent undecided. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points. A Republican Party spokeswoman said the GOP is challenging the nominating papers because they are riddled with

errors, and the party is are concerned that Democrats are behind the petitions. The petitions, said spokeswoman Valerie Caras, were circulated by and signed largely by Democrats.

Gary Johnson, the party’s candidate for president.

and photographers as he drove the truck, which had a diesel engine and loud exhaust, up the ramp turning onto North Washington Street. Later Friday afternoon, the truck was not at Loughnane’s house at 71W. Liberty St., Hanover Township, where police impounded the vehicle without a warrant on Aug. 9. Earlier on Friday, two search warrants for data from the truck’s Garmin GPS and Loughnane’s Motorola cellphone records were approved by District Judge Martin Kane in Wilkes-Barre. Investigators are seeking to retrieve data from the GPS of the truck’s movements from July 23 through Aug. 14. Several Garmin GPS units keep information of routes traveled, according to the company’s

website. It was not known what GPS model of Garmin was taken from the Ford. Police only listed the GPS’ serial number on the search warrant receipt of items seized from the truck. A message left at Garmin’s media relations department was not returned on Friday. Along with the GPS and cellphone, investigators are attempting to piece together Loughnane’s whereabouts on July 23 and July 24. Schenck, 23, told police he was arguing with McCallick when she ran out of their apartment and onto Hazle Avenue. He claimed he yelled at McCallick to get out of the road as he saw a truck, he described as being a diesel with a loud exhaust, traveling up Hazle Avenue and striking McCallick,

the affidavit says. Police on Tuesday night seized a video digital recorder from Gentlemen’s Club 10, a strip club on Mundy Street, Wilkes-Barre Township, where Jeff Erdman, 40, claimed he and Loughnane were before the fatal hit and run, according to the search warrant. Erdman told police he was with Loughnane earlier at Liam’s Place, a tavern Loughnane owns on North Washington Street, Wilkes-Barre. Erdman claimed they then went to the strip club, leaving at about 2 a.m. with Loughnane giving him a ride in the Ford F350 to his apartment, the search warrant alleges. Police noted in the search warrant Erdman’s apartment is less than two miles from where McCallick was struck. No charges have been filed.

take about five years for the office to see the benefits of what the office calls “e-filing.” Eventually, she said, the office can cut down on future staffers because the system eliminates the need for cashiering, scanning, labeling, verification and filing of the documents. Those filing documents online will be charged the same fee as if

they were filing the documents in the prothonotary’s office, as well as a $2 convenience fee. That fee is paid to credit card companies. Medico Olenginski said a feature added to the e-filing system allows filers to set up an account that they can withdraw from when filing so that they only have to pay the convenience fee once. Fees range from $5 for a sub-

poena to $169 for a divorce filing. Fees for accessing documents after conducting a search are 50 cents for the first page and 10 cents for each additional page. A $1.50 convenience fee is also charged. Credit cards are required for filing and purchasing documents, though an individual can search records free of charge.

She later worked as a librarian aid for the Wilkes-Barre Area School District at the Hoyt Street School and Kistler Elementary. According to a release from the mayor’s office, on June 8, 1946, she married Carl A. Leighton, Jr., and together they reared three children -- Cal, Joan and Kathy. In April, 1978, her husband, Carl, who was the city controller, died, and City Council appointed Mrs. Leighton to fulfill his unexpired term. She decided to run for the seat herself in 1979, and was elected. She won four consecutive terms for a total of 21 1/2 years in office. Leighton’s public service did not end with her position as city controller. During her tenure, she was the vice-chair of the Luzerne County Democratic Party, the chair of the Wilkes-Barre Democratic Club, a member of Gov. Robert P. Casey’s finance

SCHOOL Continued from Page 3A

“In a pinch this can be used as a second gym,” Suppon said. Grade sections are color coded so students and faculty can more quickly figure out where they are, though maps were handed out to teachers at a Friday morning meeting, Suppon said. There are more obvious clues distinguishing the primary and secondary centers: The section for earlier grades has “clouds” dangling in the hallways – blue metal outlines with nothing inside – while the intermediate section has a more grown-up look. The lights are not only linked to an occupancy sensor (turning off when the room is empty and on when someone walks in) they are photosensitive as well, dimming on bright days and strengthening as the outdoors grow darker. For security, all outside doors are locked and accessible only through a swipe card system. Access for students and parents is front door only, with a waiting section for parents who come to pick up their children. And that chronic security bugaboo of having someone prop open an outside door with a book or chair is mitigated with an automatic warning system. “It chirps if a door is propped open,” said Cheryl Zondlo, Architect for A & E Group, Inc., which has overseen the work. Along with the new gym to the right of the main entrance, the new “media room” (“library” to old-schoolers) is straight ahead. Two scissor lifts, one in operation as a man fiddled with a fixture on the ceiling, sit where the computers will be. An adjacent room will be set up for distance learning, allowing students to virtually visit other lo-

All three praised the program for providing more choice to parents, though critics note that unless they are public schools – which can also accept students with the scholarships – the receiving schools are not held to the same accountability as public schools. The diocese has had substantial success with the EITC program, generating nearly $9.75 million in contributions that helped 9,500 students since 2001, Genello noted. “We are confident that the additional funding and expanded program will allow the Diocese to serve even more families who desire Catholic school education for their children.” Genello wrote in an email. committee, a member of the Fireman’s Pension Board, the Fireman’s Relief Pension Board, the Policemen’s Relief Pension Board, Non-Uniform Employees Pension Board, the city’s Aggregate Board, and was the treasurer of the Pennsylvania State Controller’s Association, where she served three terms. One of her highest recognitions was her appointment by Casey to serve on the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. In 1999, Leighton lost the Democratic primary to Bernie Mengeringhausen, who held the position until he retired in 2011. After she lost, Mrs. Leighton said, “When I was appointed, I don’t mind telling you, I was frightened. I didn’t know how I was going to be received by my male counterparts.” Leighton began her political career at age 56. After two decades of overseeing city finances through four administrations, Leighton said in 1999 that she would “gladly enter a new stage of her life that will be punctuated by volunteerism and charity work.” For obituary, see Page 8A. cations or other classrooms – Suppon offered The Franklin Institute or a NASA lab as two examples – in real time courtesy of the Internet. That room, as well as some others, can be expanded by opening partitions into an adjoining classroom. Primary rooms have their own sinks and bathrooms. Computerized “smart boards” and projectors are ubiquitous. ‘Sinkhole’ filled A baseball field and two soccer fields are taking shape outside. And yes, if you heard about a “sinkhole,” there was an unexpected problem with the ground outside one wing of the school. Zondlo said a septic system that apparently served the long gone Larksville High School collapsed when heavy vehicles started construction. But a three step process using control fill, concrete and “geotech fabric” – a mesh material designed to stabilize soil – made the ground stable. The State Street expansion may be the last big public school project for a while. The state has declared a moratorium on its construction reimbursement program, a move that had Suppon and other administrators worried when it was first proposed after Gov. Tom Corbett took office. But this project came in under any deadlines and will be offset by some state money. Right now a tour still shows pavers and heavy equipment landscaping the outside, a wheelbarrow full of insulation in the hall and a stepladder, somewhat ironically, in the elevator shaft. But Suppon remains confident it will be ready and, more importantly, impressive come the day after Labor Day.

Uganda stars in its defeat

Team makes its debut with significant support despite lack of fans from home. By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — Win or lose, the Little League World Series team from Uganda has become a hometown favorite. The first team from Africa to advance to South Williamsport in the 66-year history of the tourney did fall in its debut Friday. Aguadulce, Panama, defeated the boys from Lugazi 9-3. Uganda’s coaches said they didn’t expect any parents of the players to make the expensive transatlantic trip to Pennsylvania. But Uganda has still drawn vocal fans who cheered wildly, especially after Daniel Alio’s towering home run to center in the sixth. He showed off a methodical See UGANDA, Page 3B

Former Wyoming Valley West player Eugene Lewis looks for the ball while running pass plays in practice with Penn State.

Keeping his word By DEREK LEVARSE | dlevarse@timesleader.com

It was a year and a week ago that Eugene Lewis gave his word to Joe Paterno, pledging to play for the Nittany Lions. In that year, Lewis saw his new school shattered by scandal. The coach he committed to was fired and died just days before Lewis signed his letter of intent. The team he joined was slammed by the NCAA a month after he arrived on campus, banned from the postseason for four years. In that year, Lewis kept his word. And he stayed with Penn State. Twelve months ago he was a quarterback for Wyoming Valley West, visiting State College to give a verbal commitment to Paterno. This August, he was back on the practice field outside of the Lions’ Lasch Building headquarters,

running routes as a receiver for Bill O’Brien. “I’ve seen really good things from Geno Lewis,� O’Brien said, dusting off his nickname for the former Valley West star and Meyers grad. “These (freshmen) are going to help us.� When he said it, Penn State’s new

coach was talking about this season. With 10 players having departed since the NCAA sanctions were announced in July, the Lions will have to rely more on true freshmen like Lewis to contribute right away. But Lewis and his new classmates have a chance to help the program for years to come, keeping some stability during the school’s lowest point. They turned down a free pass to transfer elsewhere to potentially play in bowl games, and to compete for conference and national titles. When Lewis made his decision last summer, he didn’t mention bowls or championships. He talked about making an impact as a freshman and his family being able to see him do it in person. He will be the first scholarship player from the Wyoming Valley to play football for Penn State in eight years. “I know a lot of guys from the Valley don’t end up going there and that a lot of See LEWIS, Page 4B

Joe Paterno had to be prodded by his family to read the grand jury report regarding Jerry Sandusky and did not understand some of its graphic terminology, according to a new book. The book, “Paterno� by Joe Posnanski, was purchased Friday by The Associated Press in advance of its release next week. In the book, Posnanski describes a scene at Paterno’s home, two days after Sandusky had been charged with child sex abuse last November. Paterno’s family and a close adviser were trying to explain to the Penn State coach that there was a growing sentiment Paterno must have known for years about the accusations against Sandusky. The book quotes Paterno as shouting “I’m not omniscient!� The book also indicates Paterno didn’t comprehend all the terms in the report, asking his son what sodomy meant. According to the book, later that night Paterno’s son, Scott, told his mother that she should brace herself for the possibility that Joe could be fired. Sue Paterno responded, “Scotty, that will kill him.� Paterno was fired by school trustees two days later, on Nov. 9. He died in January at age 85 of cancer. Sandusky, Paterno’s longtime defensive coordinator, is jailed and awaiting sentencing after being convicted in June on 45 criminal counts involving 10 boys. Former Athletic director Tim Curley and now-retired school administrator Gary Schultz are awaiting trial on charges of lying to a grand jury and failing to report the abuse allegations against Sandusky. Paterno was not charged, See PATERNO, Page 4B

New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott gets ready to go through a drill during training camp earlier this week. Scott and the Jets will play the Super Bowl champion New York Giants tonight in an exhibition game. Scott doesn’t like to be reminded that the Giants won the Super Bowl last season, while the Jets missed the playoffs.

Painful Meadowlands reunion for Jets, even for a preseason game

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It couldn’t get much worse for Bart Scott. The New York Jets linebacker was home watching the Super Bowl as two of his least favorite teams duked it out on the TV screen for the Lombardi Trophy. On one side was the AFC East-rival New England Patriots. And on the other, the Giants, who were the toast of the town in which the Jets also play. “If my team’s not in the Super Bowl, I wish they would cancel it,� Scott said. “Find out a way every other team was cheating and nobody wins that year. I’m bitter like that.� But, he found himself pulling for the Giants as they rolled to their second Super Bowl title in five years. “I’m happy for them,� Scott said. “You can best believe that I was rooting for

them for the Super Bowl, and not the other team. I can guarantee that one.� Funny thing is, the Jets helped launch the Giants into that spot the last time these teams played. Their matchup Saturday night at MetLife Stadium — a Jets home game — marks the teams’ first meeting since the Giants won 29-14 on Christmas Eve, sparked by Victor Cruz’s remarkable 99-yard touchdown catch. While that win sent the Giants on their Super Bowl run, the Jets missed the playoffs for the first time in Rex Ryan’s three seaSee JETS, Page 4B INSIDE: More NFL, Page 5B

New York Yankees’ Derek Jeter (2) hits a solo home run off of Boston Red Sox Franklin Morales in the fifth inning of a game on Friday at Yankee Stadium in New York.

Jeter hits 250th HR as Yankees top Sox The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter hit his 250th home run, Nick Swisher connected twice and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on a lightning-filled Friday night for their eighth win in 10 games. Swisher, Curtis Granderson, Russell Martin and Jeter hit solo homers off Franklin Morales (3-4), and Swisher added another solo shot in the seventh against Clayton Mortensen. Jeter’s homer gave the Yankees 10 players with 10 or more this season, tying the club record set in 1998. Phil Hughes (12-10) survived his own throwing error that led to four unearned runs during a rainy third inning. Down 3-0, the Red Sox went ahead on Dustin Pedroia’s three-run homer, the 28th long ball off Hughes this year. New York improved to 7-3 against the Red Sox this season. Tigers 5, Orioles 3

DETROIT — Prince Fielder hit a pair of two-run homers to lift the Detroit Tigers to a win over the Baltimore Orioles. Fielder hit a soaring shot to right in the eighth inning to give the Tigers a 5-3 lead. He got Detroit even at 3 in the sixth with a 462-foot shot to right-center. Joaquin Benoit (2-3) pitched

a perfect eighth inning for the win. Jose Valverde gave up a leadoff double to Manny Machado in the ninth, then retired the next three Orioles for his 23rd save in 27 chances. Blue Jays 3, Rangers 2

TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion hit his 31st home run, J.A. Happ won his second straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Yu Darvish and the Rangers, handing Texas its fourth loss in five games. Darvish (12-9) lost for the second time in three starts, allowing three runs and three hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out 10. KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Salvador Perez hit a tiebreaking two-run double with two out in the seventh inning and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox. Luis Mendoza pitched seven effective innings as Kansas City won for the third time in four games. Lorenzo Cain hit a solo homer. Paul Konerko hit a solo drive for Chicago after being activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list. It was Konerko’s first game since he was struck by a Jarrod Dyson elbow while covering first base on Aug. 7 against the Royals.

Braun’s 32nd home run lifts Brewers over Phils MILWAUKEE — Ryan Braun hit his NL-leading 32nd home run, Yovani Gallardo won his fourth straight start, and the Milwaukee Brewers extended their home winning streak to nine with a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night. Braun, Gallardo and Nyjer Morgan each drove in two runs for the Brewers. After Braun struck out with the bases loaded in Milwaukee’s four-run fourth — the second out he made in the inning — Braun connected for a two-run homer to center with two outs in the sixth to make it 6-1. He has hit three homers in two games. Gallardo (12-8) gave up one earned run and four hits, and struck out nine in seven innings. Vance Worley (6-8) allowed four earned runs and seven hits in 42⁄3 innings. Nationals 6, Mets 4

WASHINGTON — Michael Morse hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper also homered and the Washington Nationals became the latest team to tag a struggling Johan Santana in their victory over the New York Mets. Ross Detwiler tossed six solid innings and the Nationals sent Santana to his fifth loss in the last five starts. Handed a 2-0 lead, the twotime Cy Young Award winner was perfect through three in-

Harper, coming off a 3-for-32 road trip, turned on a fastball in the fifth for a two-run shot.

sons. “There are a lot of things you’d like to erase in your memory, but that unfortunately will stay in there,” Ryan said of the loss to the Giants. “As most coaches, you remember almost all the losses. But that one stung, no question about it.” So much so, that Scott has never looked at a replay of the Cruz catch, when the receiver grabbed a short pass from Eli Manning and zipped down the right sideline for the 13th 99-yard touchdown play in NFL history. The Jets were on the verge of taking control of the game, pinning the Giants at their 1 on thirdand-10. Instead, Cruz gave his team a 10-7 lead and changed the seasons for both franchises. The Giants never lost again. The Jets were sent spiraling into disappointment. “Why would I want to watch it?” Scott said. “Would you?” Only if you were rooting for the Giants that day, of course. This time, far less is on the line, with it being just the preseason and starters on both sides expected to play only the first half, if that. The game marks the home debut for the Jets’ Tim Tebow, whose every move has been dissected since the team acquired him in March. “I feel good about my role on the team,” Tebow said. “Every day, coming out here, trying to get better, learn my teammates, be a great teammate, give great effort, have a great attitude. I try to be someone that’s a leader out there on the field, so every day I’m getting more comfortable.” The NFL’s most popular backup quarterback has worked a bit running the wildcat-style offense that the Jets (0-1) envision being a big part of their offense. They didn’t use it in their preseasonopening loss at Cincinnati and they’ll likely hold back against the Giants (0-1) since it’s still just the second game. “I don’t think he cares,” Ryan said when asked if Giants coach Tom Coughlin might be preparing for the wildcat. “He’s the world champion. He probably doesn’t really care.” While many players on both sides downplayed this game as being not much more than another preseason game, they acknowledged that there’s a little extra buzz whenever it’s Jets-Giants. “Every time you play the Jets, they’re our hometown rivals and we share the stadium, so it’s always going to be an electric game,” Cruz said. “All the fans are going to make it electric. If we don’t feel so on the field, the fans are going to make you feel like it’s a big-time game. It’s definitely going to have some jitters and some anxiety, like it’s a season opener or something like that, but it’s going to be a good test for us.” Players on both teams said that they actually, for the most part, like each other and even hang out together socially in the offseason and host events. So, the bitterness that exists perhaps among fans doesn’t necessarily trickle down to the players. “Unless it’s like a Super Bowl game, it’s really not that big of a deal,” Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora said. “I think definitely the NFC East is our biggest rival. You know, the Jets, anytime we play them, it’s good because we’re in the same city and same town. A lot of those guys we know and I respect them a lot, but as far as rivalry goes, it’s definitely teams in the NFC East.”

people would be excited for me to go there,” Lewis said last August. “And definitely the location was important – it’s really close to my family.” Schools from across the country checked in to see if Lewis would change his mind last month, beginning just hours after the NCAA detailed severe penalties resulting from the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Walker takes lead at Wyndham The Associated Press

GREENSBORO, N.C— Jimmy Walker left the booming, highlight-reel drives to his playing partner. A low score was good enough for him. Walker shot an 8-under 62 on Friday to take the lead at 12under 128 after two rounds in the Wyndham Championship. Defending champion Webb Simpson (63) was one stroke back. First-round leader Carl Pettersson (68), Tim Clark (67), Sergio Garcia (63) and rookie Harris English (64) were at 10 under. Tim Herron matched the tournament record with a 61, but was still nine strokes back. Play was halted for 1 hour, 17 minutes late in the day when a system of thunderstorms passed through the central North Carolina Triad. Walker, who began the day four strokes back, had eight birdies in compiling one of the best two-day scores in event history. Only Pettersson at 125 in 2008 was better than Walker through 36 holes at Sedgefield Country Club. “I was playing with J.B. (Holmes), and he was bombing the driver everywhere, and I was just kind of bunting the 5-wood around and hitting good approach shots,” Walker

said. “It was pretty boringlooking golf — not a lot of drivers, not a lot of 3-woods. There’s a lot of 5-woods and some irons, and it’s just kind of placement around the golf course.” Walker hopes his strong round proves that he’s getting back to the form from earlier this year, when the winless 33-year-old Texan finished in the top 10 in three of his first six tournaments. Things went south when he tore his left meniscus, so instead of going to the U.S. Open, he went to the doctor for a cortisone shot to reduce the swelling. Now that he can bend down and read greens again, he can do some damage with his putter. He used it just 26 times Friday, and didn’t even need it on No. 2 because he chipped in from 50 feet. Dick’s Sporting Goods Open ENDICOTT, N.Y. — Bernhard Langer topped the leaderboard at 7 under when firstround play in the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open was suspended because of rain. Coming off a victory two weeks ago in the 3M Cham-

pionship in Blaine, Minn., Langer was facing an 8-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole when play was stopped at En-Joie Golf Course. Defending champion John Huston, Willie Wood and Chien Soon Lu were 5 under. Willie Wood, one of only 12 players to complete the round, shot a 67. Huston had three holes left, and Lu had nine to go. U.S. Amateur CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. — Steven Fox beat topranked Chris Williams 4 and 2 in the U.S. Amateur quarterfinals at Cherry Hills. Fox, a senior at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga from Hendersonville, Tenn., will play Brandon Hagy of Westlake Village, Calif., in the semifinals Saturday. Hagy, one of two players from the University of California to reach the semifinals, beat Taiwan’s Cheng-Tsung Pan 4 and 3. Michael Weaver of Fresno, Calif., also a member of Cal’s golf team, beat Ricardo Gouveia of Portugal 4 and 3.

After a week of hitting teammates, high school football teams get a chance to do the same against an opponent. All 17 Wyoming Valley Conference teams will be in action this morning in their first scrimmages of the season. The day begins at 9:30 a.m. when Wyoming Area hosts Tunkhannock in the only all-WVC scrimmage on the schedule. Slated for 10 a.m. are: Abington Heights at Wyoming Valley West; Central Columbia at GAR; Coughlin at Carbondale; Dallas at Dunmore; Holy Redeemer at Lackawanna Trail; Honesdale at Nanticoke; Meyers at Western Wayne; North Penn at Hazleton Area; Northwest at Mid Valley; Riverside at Hanover Area; Valley View at Lake-Lehman; and West Scranton at Pittston Area. At 11 a.m., Berwick will host Central Mountain and Williamsport will host Bethlehem Liberty. The schedule is subject to change.

Though the first week-plus of camp is wrapping up, Hixon likes what he sees so far from Lewis. “We’ve been happy with him,” Hixon said. “He’s big and strong. Better on his release (off of the line of scrimmage). Getting better on his release. And a good vertical. And really has good hands. He’s probably one of our better athletes that’s playing receiver.” Hixon first saw Lewis in person over the winter when he took in a Meyers basketball game. As someone who has seen plenty of impressive athletes in his 32 years of coaching, Lewis stood out to him immediately. “Obviously you could see why he played quarterback (at Valley West) along with some wide re-

ceiver,” Hixon said. “He’s a really good athlete. Good skillset. He’s coming along. We’re going to depend on him some to make some plays for us.” The Lions could certainly use the help. Derek Moye graduated. Justin Brown transferred to Oklahoma. Devon Smith was dismissed from the team. Those were the team’s starters in 2011. The leading receiver back for 2012 is junior Shawney Kersey, who caught all of five passes last season – tied with fullback Mike Zordich. Simply put, Penn State needs to find some new playmakers on offense. And Lewis was the definition of that in his time at Valley West, excelling as a receiver during his sophomore season before

BROOKLYN, Mich. — Mark Martin has 55 career Sprint Cup poles, matching the number on his Toyota. His age is only two digits lower — not that it’s much of an impediment for this remarkable racer. Martin posted the top qualifying speed Friday of199.706 mph on Michigan International Speedway’s still-new surface. It was the fourth pole of the year for the 53-year-old Martin, who is making only his 15th Cup start this season. He entered only two of the previous seven races on the circuit but showed no sign of rust. “I’ve had a few years of practice,” Martin said. “I don’t need a whole bunch of practice, I need a racecar like what I drove today. I need fast racecars.” Martin will start at the front of Sunday’s race in the No. 55 car fielded by Michael Waltrip Racing. Carl Edwards qualified second, followed by points leader Jimmie Johnson. Edwards sounded almost in awe of the pole winner. “He’s living the dream,” Edwards said. “He’s had a successful career. He’s able to come out here and pick and choose which races he’s going to run and to perform well at them. I think it’s pretty amazing, especially at his age. He’s an inspiration for me,

PATERNO Continued from Page 1B

though the NCAA last month slammed his beloved football program with a range of tough sanctions. Among them, the Nittany Lions were forced to vacate 112 wins from 1998-2011, meaning Paterno no longer has the most coaching victories in major college football. The penalty seemed to grow from a report commissioned by the school from former FBI director Louis Freeh. It said Paterno, Curley, Schultz and former school president Graham Spanier concealed allegations against Sandusky dating back to 1998. Paterno’s family and the three officials have all vehemently denied the conclusions. Paterno had granted access to Posnanski to write a biography in 2011, well before Sandusky was charged. “Nobody would argue — and certainly my book does not argue — that the good Joe Paterno did in his life should shield him from the horrors of his mistakes,” Posnanski wrote in a column for USA Today earlier this week. “Some would argue, especially in the white-hot emotion sparked by the latest revelations, that Paterno’s role in the Jerry Sandusky crimes invalitopping 1,000 yards rushing and passing in each of the last two years as the Spartans’ quarterback. Another District 2 alum wants to see Lewis play right away for the Lions. “I hope so,” quarterback Matt McGloin said. “As long as he continues to improve. You can tell that he wants to be good. He’s always asking questions. He’s always trying to get better … staying after (practice) and throwing some balls to him.” Penn State entered camp with Kersey and sophomore Allen Robinson the favorites to start on the outside, with sophomore Alex Kenney the top option in the slot. Christian Kuntz, Evan Lewis, Brandon Moseby-Felder and Matt Zanellato are also in the mix, with

My kids someday might be racing against the guy. And they might be just as frustrated.” The track at MIS was repaved in the offseason, and Marcos Ambrose qualified for the June race at 203.241 mph, the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during Sprint Cup qualifying. NASCAR altered left-side tires for the race that weekend, and cars slowed down. Martin’s speed was still easily faster than Ryan Newman’s 2005 qualifying mark of 194.232 mph, which was the track record before Ambrose set a new one. Ambrose qualified eighth this time. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won at MIS in June for his first victory in four years, qualified 22nd. Martin moved into a tie for seventh with Bill Elliott on the series’ career poles list. when they host the Syracuse Crunch on Monday, Dec. 31, for a special 5:05 p.m. start time. Twenty-nine of Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton’s 38 home games will be played on weekend nights and afternoons.

dates whatever good he might have done. My book does not argue that either. My book, I believe, lets the reader make up his or her own mind.” The book also details the long and frosty relationship Paterno had with Sandusky while they worked together at Penn State. According to the book, the two were never friendly and late in Sandusky’s tenure, Paterno felt the defense was not performing well and neither was Sandusky. Paterno did not want to fire Sandusky because he was so popular in the community and with fans, according to the book. The book indicates that Sandusky showed interest in taking an early retirement in 1999, and Paterno encouraged him to do so and let his assistant know he would not be the next head coach at Penn State. Sandusky and Curley negotiated a retirement package, and among Sandusky’s demands was to stay on through the 1999 season. The book indicates Paterno reluctantly agreed, and then regretted the decision when the team, which was considered one of the national championship favorites going into the season and reached No. 2 in the nation, lost three games late in the year with an underperforming defense. Lewis in a group of four true freshmen looking to crack the depth chart. Of all the positions in his offense, O’Brien said the receivers have the best chance of playing as freshmen because at that spot “it’s more about athletic ability than it is about physical strength.” The season opens Sept. 1 against Ohio at Beaver Stadium. Where things go from there will be up to Lewis. “He’s been great,” McGloin said. “I mean, he’s a freshman, so he’s going to make some mistakes here and there. But he’s just really talented. He’s a really talented kid. He’s got great hands and hopefully he can continue to step up and play for us. “He can definitely make an impact this year.”

Union disputes Goodell’s courtesy

Commissioner claimed to have reached an agreement with the players on circumstances.

Jennings nearing return

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says wide receiver Greg Jennings has made significant steps in his recovery from a concussion and may be able to return to practice Sunday. Jennings has been out of practice since he sustained a concussion in the Packers’ Aug. 3 “Family Night” scrimmage at Lambeau Field. McCarthy said Friday that Jennings had progressed through the protocol for returning from head injuries and was close to returning. The Packers’ next practice is Sunday. McCarthy also says linebacker Desmond Bishop had surgery Friday, after tearing his right hamstring in the Packers’ first preseason game. It is not clear if Bishop will miss the season, although McCarthy said previously that his season was in jeopardy.

NEW ORLEANS — The NFL Players Association filed documents in federal court disputing Commissioner Roger Goodell’s sworn statement that he was prepared to discipline players for their involvement in the Saints bounty pool back in March but waited until May as a courtesy to the union. Attorneys for four players suspended in the bounty investigation have argued the punishment handed down by Goodell should be overturned, in part because the commissioner’s public statements last spring showed he had improperly pre-judged the players’ actions.

The documents filed Friday include sworn declarations by sanctioned linebacker Scott Fujita and union chief DeMaurice Smith. Fujita reiterated comments he made in an interview with The Associated Press in June in which he described a phone conversation he had with Goodell in March. “During our phone conversation on or about March 20, Mr. Goodell told me that he would be coming down hard with punishments on Saints coaches, but that with respect to Saints players, he was not quite sure what he had on them, and that player punishments would therefore take some time,” Fujita’s declaration said. U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan had asked for the league and union to file evidence this week related to the NFL’s contention that Goodell delayed ruling on the players only because he was asked to do so by the union while it conducted its own bounty probe.

In a declaration filed Thursday, Goodell stated he agreed in a phone conversation with Smith “to address discipline of the club and non-player employees and then to afford the NFLPA a reasonable opportunity to conduct its own investigation and express its views before I imposed discipline on the players.” Smith, however, stated in his Friday declaration that he and Goodell never reached the agreement the commissioner described. The NFLPA also noted in its filing that as late as April 24, Goodell was quoted in media reports saying he and league investigators “have been continuing our work” investigating player conduct, and “I hope to reach those decisions very soon.” Goodell disciplined the Saints, coaches and general manager Mickey Loomis on March 21. Head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire season, while Loomis was docked half a season

and assistant head coach Joe Vitt six games. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely for running the bounty program, which the NFL said paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011. Goodell later suspended linebacker Jonathan Vilma for the entire season, and he is currently barred from Saints headquarters, where he was hoping to rehabilitate from offseason knee surgery. Saints defensive end Will Smith has been suspended for the first four regular-season games and is currently participating in the preseason. Two former Saints who are still active also were suspended: Green Bay defensive end Anthony Hargrove was penalized eight games and Fujita, now with Cleveland, got three games.

STEELERS

Hampton, Mendenhall activated by Steelers

LATROBE — Before they broke camp at St. Vincent College on Friday, the Steelers made a surprise move in activating nose tackle Casey Hampton and running back Rashard Mendenhall from the physically unable to perform list. Each veteran has been rehabilitating a torn ACL sustained in January. Mendenhall’s right knee was injured in the Jan. 1 regular-season finale at Cleveland, while Hampton’s left knee ligament was torn in the Jan. 8 playoff loss at Denver. The Mendenhall move was particularly unexpected because the stress placed on the knee by lateral cuts typical of a running back usually results in a longer recovery time. It was widely expected he would begin the regular season on the PUP list. Throughout camp, both players — as well as coach Mike Tomlin — were vague when talking about timetables for return to practice. CHIEFS

Bowe inks franchise tender

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender after skipping Kansas City’s entire offseason program and the beginning of training camp. The team announced Friday that Bowe had signed. He will make about $9.5 million this season after the two sides failed to reach a long-term deal by the July 16 deadline. It was unknown whether Bowe would join the Chiefs for their preseason game against the St. Louis Rams on Saturday. Even if he did, there is virtually no chance he would play. Bowe is coming off another strong season in which he caught 81 passes for 1,159 yards and five touchdowns, despite an injury to quarterback Matt Cassel that left him with the likes of Tyler Palko and Kyle Orton throwing him the ball.

Titans ride Johnson TDs to victory over Bucs The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Chris Johnson ran for two touchdowns and Rob Bironas kicked three field goals as the Tennessee Titans capitalized on some early turnovers to earn a 30-7 preseason victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday night. The Titans got an early boost from their defense, capitalizing on two firsthalf turnovers by the Bucs. Tennessee second-year quarterback Jake Locker didn’t have an ideal outing in his first NFL start, completing 4 of 11 for 21 yards and an interception. But his counterpart, Josh Freeman, also looked shaky, completing 4 of 10 for 21 yards in five series of work. Bucs running back LeGarrette Blount left the game in the first half with a left leg injury. Both Titans coach Mike Munchak and Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano came into Friday hoping to see strong performances by their young quarterbacks. Locker was looking to impress the coaching staff enough in hopes of earning the starting job over veteran Matt Hasselbeck, but got off to a very rocky start.

Pinned inside his own 10 on the Titans’ second series of the game, Locker had his second pass intercepted by free safety Ahmad Black and returned all the way to the 2. The Bucs quickly capitalized, with Freeman finding Mike Williams for a 2-yard touchdown pass to put Tampa up 7-0. Locker had a serviceable outing replacing Hasselbeck in the Titans’ loss to open the preseason last week, but completed 1 of his first 4 attempts against the Bucs. He played all but one series in the first half Locker did have a few highlights, his biggest coming two series after his pick when he scrambled 21 yards on a broken play to set up a 14-yard touchdown run by Johnson to make it 7-7 late in the first quarter. The play capped a dominating fiveplay, 71-yard drive that took just 2:26. Locker had his best throw of the game during that series, completing an 11yard pass to Craig Stevens. But Locker’s struggles stuck out more. They included him failing to lead his team into the end zone early in the second quarter after Titans defensive end Leger Douzable recovered a

fumble by Tampa backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky on the Bucs’ 10.

Vikings 36, Bills 14 MINNEAPOLIS — Christian Ponder threw a first-quarter touchdown pass in a sharp three-possession appearance and the Minnesota Vikings breezed to a victory over the Buffalo Bills, who saw a decent performance from backup quarterback candidate Vince Young. Young’s competitor for the No. 2 spot behind Ryan Fitzpatrick is former Vikings draft pick Tyler Thigpen, who threw an interception late in the fourth quarter that was returned 20 yards for a touchdown by rookie linebacker Audie Cole. On the next play from scrimmage, Cole picked off Brad Smith’s pass and ran that one 30 yards for a score. Lions 27, Ravens 12 BALTIMORE — Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes, Calvin Johnson had five catches for 111 yards and a score, and the Detroit Lions beat the Baltimore Ravens 27-12 in a preseason game Friday night. Stafford went 12 for 17 for 184 yards in four possessions. He failed to pro-

duce a score in three drives last week against Cleveland, then came up empty in his first two series against Baltimore before guiding touchdown drives of 93 and 70 yards. Stafford threw an 18-yard TD pass to Johnson and connected with Titus Young for a 24-yard score to help Detroit take a 17-9 halftime lead. Panthers 23, Dolphins 17 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cam Newton outplayed rookie Ryan Tannehill in a matchup of young quarterbacks as the Carolina Panthers defeated the Miami Dolphins in a preseason game. Newton looked extremely sharp, completing 8 of 11 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown as the Panthers jumped all over the injury-depleted Dolphins defense early, scoring on their first three possessions to take a 17-0 lead. Last year’s AP Offensive Rookie of the Year threw a touchdown pass to DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart scored on a 2-yard plunge. Newton had been expected to play into the second quarter, but was removed with 1:12 left in the first after a solid night’s work.

Players association is bracing for potential lockout by team owners By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

ROSEMONT, Ill — NHLPA head Donald Fehr said Friday the players are prepared for the eventuality of an owners’ lockout if a new collective bargaining agreement can’t be reached. Fehr wrapped up a meeting held over parts of two days with about 40 players at a hotel outside of O’Hare International Airport. The union will hold similar informational meetings next week in British Columbia and Toronto. Fehr said it’s no surprise for players to hear about the possibility of a lockout,

especially since both the NFL and NBA have recently weathered shutdowns. Players are not surprised and fully understand what the ramifications of a work stopFehr page would mean, since most of them either lived through or have teammates who were playing when the NHL shut down in 2004, he said. “It was interested. It was focused. It was sobered,” Fehr said, describing the

tone of the meetings. “Players understand what is going on, understand what the issues are and understand how the owners’ proposal will affect them, understand how this compares to what happened seven years ago. ... understand that this will affect their lives if we can’t find a way through this in the immediate future.” The league wants the players to give up a significant amount of salary to stabilize the industry while the union maintains that goal would be best accomplished with the wealthy teams doing more to help their struggling counter-

parts. Fehr is scheduled to resume formal discussions with the league Aug. 22. When that starts, the league and the union will have just 24 days left to reach a new agreement and avoid a lockout. The current CBA runs out on Sept. 15 — by which time Commissioner Gary Bettman wants a deal in place. The regular season is set to start Oct. 11. The entire 2004-05 season was lost to a lockout and then the players eventually accepted a 24 percent rollback on salaries and a cap. Despite the wide philosophical gap between the two sides, Fehr

said there is still time to reach an agreement. “If there is a mutual will to get this done, if we can find a common platform around which to construct an agreement, then obviously there is plenty of time in which to do that,” he said, adding he’s out of the prediction business. “Unfortunately, what you saw in the last two negotiations in football and basketball, and can be argued what happened in hockey in 2004, is that the lockout was the strategy of first choice, not the strategy of last resort,” Fehr continued.

Froome, Contador duel for Vuelta crown

It is a return to racing for Contador, who will be in his first major race since 2010. By JOSEPH WILSON Associated Press Writer

BARCELONA, Spain — Christopher Froome will be chasing an elusive victory, while Alberto Contador starts the long road back from doping disgrace when the Spanish Vuelta starts Saturday in Pamplona. Froome finished second in the Tour de France behind Sky teammate Bradley Wiggins. He was runner-up in last year’s Vuelta. “This race is definitely a great opportunity for me,” Froome said. “I will do my part and I know the rest of the team is ready. I’d certainly love to win a Grand Tour after finishing second in the last two I’ve done.”" Froome’s main challenger is likely Contador, who will be competing in his first major race since serving a doping ban that cost him his third Tour title. Contador, who won the Vuelta in 2008, completed the ban this month after testing positive for the banned stimulant clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour. Sidelined for more than a year, he used the seven-day Eneco Tour in Belgium and the Netherlands to warm up for the Vuelta with his Team Saxo Bank. Contador, who denies he doped and blamed contaminated beef, said he had been affected by the ban and was eager to compete again. “My spirits are high and I am up for the race,” he said. “What I have been through during the last months has left its mark, it is impossible to ignore it. I have suffered but I am now looking to the future. I am motivated and excited for the Vuelta to begin.” The Vuelta, the third of the classic European summer races following the Tour and Giro, begins Saturday with a 10.2-mile team time trial through the narrow cobblestone streets of Pamplona and finishes in the city’s

At age 12, Elijah Earnheart weighs more than nearly every NFL defensive end. By LINDA STEWART BALL Associated Press Writer

MESQUITE, Texas — A suburban Dallas boy has been barred from playing peewee football because the league says he is just too big at nearly 300 pounds. Mesquite Pee Wee Football Association president Ronnie Henderson said the rules are clear and 12-year-old Elijah Earnheart is not eligible. The 6foot-1-inch boy exceeds the 135pound limit for seventh-graders, he was told Sunday when the league held its official weigh-in. Henderson said he asked Elijah whether he was in sixth or seventh grade, then told him “no need going” any further. “We’ve got little boys that play against him that are 85, 95 and 100 pounds,” Henderson said. “We have to look out for all the kids, not just him.” Cindy Earnheart said her son was feeling self-conscious about his size until he discovered pee-

wee football. His barber happened to coach a team, the Mesquite Vikings, and suggested the boy join. Coach Marc Wright said a passage in the rulebook seemed to indicate that youths who weigh more than 135 pounds could play, but only on the offensive or defensive line. At his physical last month, Elijah’s doctor said he weighed 297 pounds and stood 6-feet-11⁄2 inches tall. When he’s playing football Elijah said, “I feel energetic. I feel happy.” Henderson said the exception in the rulebook was meant for sixth-graders who can weigh as much as 160 pounds. He suggested Elijah play for his middle school team, but the boy doesn’t have much football experience and was hoping to feel his way in peewee first. Cindy Earnheart said barring her son was discrimination. “No one is telling boys who are too thin or too small that they can’t play football,” she said. “Why tell my kid he’s too big? She added: “Isn’t bigger better in football? Football is a contact sport. If you don’t want your son tackled, get him off the field.”

“Froome could be the main rival to take into account,” Contador said. “He has a potent team, and he is a very strong rider. In 2011 he came close to winning the Vuelta and he was the strongest rider in the Tour.” The Vuelta’s course appears perfect for the mountain skills of the 27-year-old British rider, who will finally be riding to win and with a team to back him. “It’s definitely going to be a change, a new experience for me. I’m not riding at someone else’s speed,” Froome said. “I’d like to think I’ve learned from the last two Grand Tours I’ve done how to pace myself, how I need to ride to be in optimum position throughout three weeks, not just a couple of days.” This is the second year the Vuelta will pass through the Basque Country after a 33-year absence because of political unrest.

dicted a close race. “The best names in the world are going to fight for the victory,” he told Spanish sports daily AS, predicting that Froome and Contador will face competition from Alejandro Valverde, Juan Jose Cobo, Joaquim Rodriguez, Igor Anton and Robert Gesink. Indurain said Contador was “a born winner...I’m sure he will be eager to win on his return.” Cobo, who edged Froome to win last year, returns with new Movistar teammate Valverde, while Rodriguez, who finished second at the Giro d’Italia, will be supported by two-time Vuelta winner and Katusha teammate Denis Menchov. Froome again proved to be one of the best climbers in this summer’s Tour when he had to slow down for Wiggins to keep pace with him on the tougher mountain stages.

Apple stock hits new high after dip

3rd generation has appetite for business

Table games revenue falls Table games gambling revenue fell 1.5 percent in July compared to a year earlier at the 10 Pennsylvania casinos operating since July 2011, the state Gaming Control Board said Friday. Total revenue including Valley Forge Casino Resort, which opened in March, was $56.5 million, compared to $55.5 million in July 2011. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ revenue in July from 84 tables was $3.8 million, down 6.3 percent. Mount Airy Casino resort won $3.6 million from gamblers, a decline of 15.2 percent from July 2011. Sands Bethlehem, which added 23 tables over the year, led in volume at $12.5 million, up 24 percent.

The previous high for the stock was $644, hit on April 10. By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer

Facebook value cut by half Facebook’s stock fell to $19 for the first time on Friday, meaning it has lost half its market value since the company’s initial public offering in May. It hit that milestone a day after the expiration of a lock-up period. The lock-up’s end has provided some early investors and insiders with an opportunity to sell shares. Investors have been concerned about Facebook’s ability to increase revenue and make money from its growing mobile audience. On Friday, the stock fell 87 cents, or 4 percent, to $19 in afternoon trading. The stock closed Friday at $19.05 per share, down 4.1 percent.

“When I make the sauce, nobody is allowed to add anything. Nobody.” She goes to great lengths to maintain secrecy. When she goes away on vacation, she will make a pot of sauce for the staff to use until she returns. Chilek said her grandmother, who lived in Kingston at the time, developed the recipe in her kitchen and began making barbecues to sell. “Her children would collect orders for barbecues when they went to school,” she said. Her grandfather, a mason, was out of work due to the Depression. They had six children to feed and a mortgage to pay. “She made her money with 25-cent barbecues and 5-cent Cokes,” she said. What started as just a way to make ends meet grew into a thriving business, and when an affordable property became available, her grandmother purchased it. “It was formerly a cow pasture,” she said. The original 15-foot-by-15-foot building is now surrounded by years of expansion. Pictures scattered throughout the building show changes over the years, as well as her grandmother, aunt, mother and other family members. “It is a tribute to my grandmother, mother, and aunt,” she said.

OOSIC – At a time when many small businesses are struggling, Candice Chilek took the leap to reopen Thomas’ Barbecue in Moosic, becoming the third generation of her family to run the restaurant.

Store sales increased .1 percent in the quarter, but have decreased .6 percent year-to-date.

NEW YORK — Apple’s stock hit a new high Friday after a fourmonth swoon, as investors look ahead to the release of a new iPhone and possibly a smaller iPad. Already the world’s most valuable company, Apple Inc. saw its stock close at $648.11 Friday, very near the day high. That was up $11.77, or 1.9 percent, from Thursday’s close. The previous high for the stock was $644, hit on April 10. Shares continued to edge higher in the aftermarket. Apple has a market value of about $605 billion, almost 50 percent higher than No. 2 Exxon Mobil Corp. at $408 billion. Apple’s stock fell last month after the company’s earnings report for the April-June quarter showed the slowest growth in more than two years. It was only the second time in 10 years that Apple had missed analyst expectations. Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek raised his price target on the stock to $900 from $800 on Friday, saying an “iPad Mini” is in production in China. His belief is based on readings of reports from Apple’s suppliers, contract manufacturers and contacts in the region. He now believes Apple will build 25 million iPads of all kinds in the current quarter, up from a previous estimate of 16 million, which did not include the “Mini.” The Cupertino, Calif., company hasn’t said anything about a new iPhone or iPad. Speculation about a smaller iPad has been rife this year. Analysts believe Apple wants to make a cheaper tablet computer to counter the threat of the Google Nexus and Amazon Kindle Fire, both of which sell for $199. The cheapest current iPad costs $399. Analysts now believe the iPhone 5 will go on sale in late September, and it’s widely believed that it will be the biggest phone launch ever. Rumored upgrades include the ability access the latest wireless data networks in the U.S. and a slightly bigger screen.

Candice Chilek, standing, third generation owner of Thomas’ Barbecue, Birney Avenue in Moosic, chats with customers Ann Frances Kurzweil, left, Seymour Kurzweil, and Ralph Jimmie on Thursday.

A cold front moved across the state yesterday producing showers and a few thunderstorms over Central and Eastern Pennsylvania. Cooler, drier air is spreading over the region today and that will help clear out the clouds and keep us dry. The temperature will climb into the middle and upper 70s. Tonight will be mostly clear and cool as the mercury drops into the upper 40s and lower 50s tomorrow morning. Sunday afternoon will feature a mixture of sun and clouds with a high of 80. Rain showers return on Monday. - Kurt Aaron

to interior doors. Doors are vital parts of homes under construction or undergoing makeovers, thanks to builders and interior designers, who are paying close attention to how doors separate spaces and add architectural appeal.

“Doors are becoming a feature in the home,” said Donna Mathis, owner of Suwanee, Ga.-based DMD Studios. Soaring tall Door heights are expanding, and the use of 8-foot doors in single-family homes and condos can add to the grandeur of residences. “Over and over again, (buyers) want 8-foot doors within the main level,” said Jennifer Crosby, owner of Atlanta-based Crosby Design Group.

Traditionally, homes and condos use doors that extend 6 feet 8 inches, but taller doors dramatically improve the look of the space, builders and designers say. People notice the difference. “Instead of having this expansive space between the top of your door frame and the ceiling height, it makes your home look bigger and more stately,” said Art Rountree, operations director for Kairos Development Corp., which installed 8-foot solid wood See DOORS, Page 2C

Beyond ‘Ick!’ — how to cope with the BUGS of summer By LESLIE BARKER GARCIA The Dallas Morning News

Crawling, careening, cavorting into this season of cannonballs and car trips is another given, a nuisance more annoying than pebbles under a Slip ’N Slide: Bugs. With their species numbering “tens of thousands” in places, says Texas entomology specialist Mike Merchant, knowing that less than 1 percent have “potential for biting a human” doesn’t sound too bad. In theory at least. That’s small comfort when you can practically feel microscopic knives and forks plunging into your skin, and swear every one of that 1 percent is donning a redchecked napkin and ordering you for dinner. “They do have piercing, sucking

mouth parts,” acknowledges Merchant, professor at Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Dallas, which is part of the Texas A&M System. When the creatures put those parts into action, says Dr. Andy Kahn, emergency physician at Baylor Medical Center at Garland, Texas, “We see a wide variety of things related to bug bites. They vary from a mild issue of bites all over the body to more severe reactions — redness, swelling, spreading all over.” The most severe? When you can’t breathe, or your throat swells, or your blood pressure has dangerously dropped, he says. Still, Merchant says, insects are essential for the ecosystem. “I think there’s a lot more fear factor than truth in our phobias about insects. Strangely, I think we worry

cells.” Why else? The skin starts to swell and forms a welt. Then the itching, which is caused by their irritating saliva, begins. “For me, it itches really badly for three days, then starts getting OK,” Merchant says. “I get a big red dark (mark) on my skin, which takes weeks to go away.” What to do about them: CortiMeet the CHIGGER sone cream or Benadryl will help These minuscule mites hang out in ease the symptoms. fields and pastures and on roadsides, waiting for a warmblooded host like a Meet the TICK Technically, these are not inrabbit, a squirrel — or, in his case, a sects, Merchant says. They’re arresident entomologist. Why we don’t like them: “They thropods, which means they have latch onto shoes and socks and jointed legs (eight, to be precise) pants,” Merchant says. “They and an exoskeleton. “If you go walk in the woods crawl around till they find a nice, snug spot, and then they bite. They feed on skin See BUGS, Page 3C

about the wrong things — things getting into our house and biting us in our homes. The things we should worry about are mosquitoes or ticks when we’re recreating around the countryside.” So let’s start introductions with the outdoor variety of biters and stingers, beginning with Merchant’s particular least favorite:

emember when water was free? Well, sort of? Neither do I, but I do remember when it was kinda-sorta cheap. When it didn’t cost an arm and leg to drink the sustainer of life – or wash the dishes, clothes or body. Now, well, let’s just say the envelope that carries the water bill is just one of the unpredictables that make me cringe each month. Sometimes its arrival even calls for an examination of conscience. How many times in the past month have I: • Not turned off the water while brushing teeth? • Washed a half-load of dishes because I wanted to put favorite glasses or coffee mugs back in the rotation more quickly? • Took too long in the shower for no good reason? (Side note: Did you know a prisoner gets three minutes and the whistle blows and it’s out, now? A corrections staffer recently told me that, and for some reason it fascinated me. Enough to keep me on the straight and narrow anyway.) Well, regardless, a recent realization/ revelation prompts me to share – and seek commiseration. I think it’s all but official anyway: I now pay more per month to Pennsylvania American Water for extras and add-ons than I do for actual, good old-fashioned H2O. So let’s call the “water” bill a misnomer. Case in point: Almost half my bill goes toward insurance, the purchasing of the peace of mind of knowing that if water ends up in places it doesn’t belong or should other water-related mishaps occur, I’m covered. If pipes clog or burst, if rain issues from the ceiling, if I leave the hose out too long and Old Man Winter tells me what he thinks of that … (OK, maybe not that sort of neglect.) Anyway, you might have heard this little rant before, but now I want to let you in on a little secret: Nothing’s going to happen. Why? Because I’m paying for all this insurance. Make it stop! Please, someone … ’Tis what I told myself when considering whether it made sense to add to my prized papers collection some coverage for this mine-subsidence business. (The subject’s made headlines lately. Been paying attention? We even published a little map.) “Do you live in the zone?” someone asked me. Of course. Seems I live in “the zone” for everything. As if residing in Lady Susquehanna’s crosshairs isn’t enough, now I find out this dandy domicile also stands in a part of town where the earth apparently can suddenly open up and swallow it. Maybe swallow us, too. (In which case, who needs insurance?) Smart people wouldn’t talk like that, I know. Especially when the price is right. That seemed the consensus. But you know what? I think I’m drawing the line. Rolling the dice, as it were. I’d say enough is enough, but I won’t say there isn’t other coverage I’d consider, if anyone’s offering. Garbage-disposal insurance. (I swear I put not so much as a single potato peel in it this time, and still … ) Plant insurance. (If it dies, carrier will revive or replace, no questions asked.) Laundry insurance. (If it shrinks, stretches, rips or otherwise goes amok, carrier takes me shopping.) Shoe insurance. (If they feel great in the store but five days later I can’t walk in them, I get two new pairs, one as compensation for the bait and switch.) I could go on but won’t. The point is I really would pay decent money to protect against all these eventualities, but mine subsidence? Eh … Oh, who am I kidding? I know me. I’ll cave eventually. (Get it, cave?) Suddenly, I have this sinking feeling … Reach Sandra Snyder, the editor of At Home, at 831-7383 or ssnyder@timesleader.com.

Door manufacturers are coming out with these options, which create cleaner lines, instead of the traditional six-panel door, Mathis said.

a pocket door between the dining room and a kitchen in a traditional home. “They would still have a very segregated and closed dining room when they wanted it, but when they wanted it to function as a free flow between their beautiful new kitchen and their dining room, it opens up,” Tavel said. A row of pivot doors also can create an architectural element that can function as a wall when needed. Heading outdoors For patio doors, homeowners can replace a double set of French doors to the outside with stackable, or folding doors, Mathis said. “It is the whole concept of bringing the outdoors in,” she said. Some manufacturers offer patio doors that retract or fold up, opening up interior rooms such as the family room, breakfast room or keeping room, to the backyard. Manufacturer Andersen’s outswing folding patio doors come in 21 colors and sev-

en types of wood and can be customized up to 48 feet, and open from the right, left or center. Retractable screen door makers include the Clear View Systems, which work vertically or horizontally and differ from the traditional doors that swing out and can hit furniture and people. Steve Kaplan, owner of Peachtree Blinds of Atlanta, based in Alpharetta, Ga., says more people are seeking retractable doors, with his sales of the doors up 50 percent over last year. (Costs start at $395 for a single door and $775 for a set of French doors.) A speed reducer makes the retractable door safer for children and pets. “The No. 1 installation area is kitchen/keeping room to deck/ patio,” he said. An option for condos is the NanaWall, which can open up a wall spanning 8 or 10 feet wide, Crosby said. Homeowners also can take a cue from restaurants created out of old gas stations. Crosby said a garage door can be used in place of a wall in a basement, to open up the space to the outdoors.

Let’s start this column with advice from reader Sharon Garcia of St. Davids, Pa.: “I just read the question posed by the person with the brown stain buildup everywhere in the dishwasher. “I had this problem for many years and discovered that the only thing that would make the brown go away was Tang drink mix in the soap dispenser. It will have to probably run a few times if it has a lot of buildup. “I always ran it on hot without dishes when the buildup got bad. I also would open it during the rinse cycle and add some more. “A cheaper solution, I later discovered, was any inexpensive instant lemonade powder. Just check the label and make sure the ingredients are the same, or similar to Tang. It must have something to do with the acidic component of citrus that breaks down the deposits on the walls. “I no longer have this problem. When the dishwasher finally died, I replaced it with one that has a stainless steel interior. Got tired of dealing with it.” ••• Q: “We have a bid to renovate a bathroom from a contractor we like and who comes recommended. “He has said he can reduce the bid by $400 if we pay in cash. I was wondering if you have any thoughts on dos and don’ts when paying in cash. It is in the neighborhood of $10,000, so it is a lot of cash to carry around. “I really just want to be aware of any pitfalls or ‘gotchas,’ and make sure I am protected in case of any dispute.” A: There are a couple of things working in your favor. The first is that you like the contractor; the second is that he comes recommended. You need a contract in any case, whether you pay him in cash or not, and you should not give him all of it up front. The best way is to agree contractually to release an agreedupon amount periodically for work completed to your satisfaction, with the largest payment to come at the successful completion of all the work.

Free-flowing spaces Traditional doors that swing out or in can take up valuable space. Some door decisions are focused on open space and creating a flow for entertaining and everyday living, causing people to consider pocket doors, folding doors. “We like doors to disappear. So when they’re closed, they’re closed, and when they’re open, they don’t exist,” said architect Jose Tavel, co-owner of TaC Studios in Atlanta. Pocket doors can separate public and private areas in a home. (Tavel and his wife, architect Cara Cummins, have nine pocket doors in their residence/ studio.) The doors can be 8 feet tall, ranging from 36 inches wide to 60 inches wide, almost all are 8 feet tall. (Johnson Hardware and Hafele are two companies they use.) Pocket doors can work between bedrooms and living areas, living areas and offices, bathrooms, closets and other spots in modern and traditional homes. Tavel says another option is putting a pocket door in a bathroom; in their home, it allows east light into the bathroom in the morning and a view from the tub to the mature white oaks in the backyard. “I have a lot of requests for pocket doors. Pocket doors have made a comeback,” said Maricita Hughes, director of interiors for Isakson Living, creator of retirement communities including Park Springs in Stone Mountain, Ga. “They’ve come a long way from where they used to be.” People frustrated with pocket doors that went off their tracks may find that today’s pocket doors are sturdier and less likely to malfunction. Hughes estimates that pocket doors cost about 30 percent more than traditional doors, but homeowners often are willing to pay when space is at a premium. TaC Studios recently installed

From the use of glass to painting doors, here are some tips on incorporating style and functionality with your doors: • A barn door can add an unusual touch, especially in a media room or office, Crosby said. Another idea is to use reclaimed wood for doors; manufacturer JELD-WEN offers custom doors made from Douglas fir that originally was used for barns, fencing, factories and houses. • Spots such as media rooms are where homeowners can have more fun with doors made of metal or other materials. • Door colors can vary from subtle, such as matching the baseboard or crown molding, or can add a pop of color. If you have a cream color in the home, Mathis suggests making the doors stand out with black or a charcoal hue. Another trick to enhance the look of a door is by painting the door and trim the same color, with a semi-gloss paint, and the walls the same color, but in a flat paint, Crosby said. • Frosted-glass inserts in doors provide privacy but keep spaces from being too dark, especially in a windowless bathroom that may be found in older homes or con-

A four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, well-designed family home.

Looking for a roomy family home with an open layout? Plan HMAFAPW1705 from Homeplans.com is for you. The home covers 2,776 square feet of finished living space on two levels, with an additional 2,061 square feet of space in the unfinished basement. Enter under a radius window into the foyer and then ahead to the large, open gathering space. Here, the great room, kitchen and breakfast nook flow into one another, with columns gracefully delineating spaces. There’s room for guests to sit and chat at the kitchen island and room to prep food as well. Windows brighten the breakfast nook, which opens to a side porch that would be a perfect place to set up a grill. With its entrance tucked away out of sight, the master bedroom enjoys privacy away from secondary bedrooms. The master bath boasts a corner tub, separate shower, two walk-in closets (one with a window!), and a doublesink vanity. Three more bedrooms, one quite large, share a full hall bath upstairs. Use the library downstairs as a den, home office, media room or even a small exercise room. Thoughtful details include the closet on the way in from the three-car garage (no need to pass through the laundry room), and several different linen closets and other storage areas around the house.

IN BRIEF Q&A Q: I have the traditional flowers that butterflies like in my garden and thought perhaps I would start adding ripened fruit and sugar water. When is the right time to do this? A: Carol Sutek, a master gardener from Plain Township, Ohio, who specializes in butterfly gardening, said fall butterflies are attracted to the rotting fruit in orchards. Putting rotting fruit out in late summer and fall mimics that food source.

HMAFAPW1705 DETAILS Bedrooms: 4 Baths: 2 1/2 Upper floor: 715 sq. ft. Main floor: 2,061 sq. ft. Total living area: 2,776 sq. ft. Garage: 655 sq. ft. Dimensions: 75-0 by 53-4 Exterior wall framing: 2 by 6 Foundation options: standard basement

She makes a butterfly mash from a half-can of beer, 2 to 4 ounces of dark molasses, a handful of brown sugar and some overripe fruit, such as peaches, bananas or apples. Puree the ingredients in a blender, and then store the mixture in a glass jar for about a month to allow it to ferment. Put the lid on the jar loosely so ants can’t get in but the jar won’t explode. You can keep adding more overripe fruit to the mixture if you like. Starting in late July, put a half cup or so of the mixture out on a dish for the butterflies. Because the mixture attracts ants, she rec-

ommends locating it away from the house. She also replaces hers every day because the raccoons eat it at night. Earlier in the summer, you can put out chunks of watermelon or an orange cut in half to feed the butterflies, Sutek said. Put the fruit close to flowers.

the right time of year, it’s easy to have a tick latch onto you, and if you give it enough time, it will attach itself and begin feeding,” he says. “They’re fairly common this time of year in roadsides, pastures, woods, prairies and fields.” Why we don’t like them: Some ticks transmit diseases, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease. What to do about them: Keep the tick intact as you remove it from your being as soon as you spot it, Merchant says. Use tweezers as close to your skin as possible; slowly pull it straight out without twisting. Leaving the head inside increases the risk of infection. “When I was a kid, we were told to stick a hot match head on the back of the tick,” Merchant says. “Some research suggests that when you irritate a tick with grease” — i.e., petroleum jelly, another old wives’ tale gone sour — “or hot match heads, the ticks salivate more, which transmits a disease pathogen.” Keep the tick. If you start feeling sick or develop a rash, take it to the doctor. If that need does arise, Kahn says, “We’ll need to know if you’ve traveled recently or been around people who have traveled. There are certain infections and tick-borne illnesses that come from the northeast and northern Midwest states.” Meet the MOSQUITO “Even though they seem less yucky than some of the others,” Merchant says, “they’re probably the No. 1 health-related biting insect in the world.” Why we don’t like them: The United States may not be the malaria hot spot it once was, but mosquitoes can still carry encephalitis or West Nile virus. Symptoms mimic those of other ailments and include fever, body blog My Marrakesh, which she created to chronicle the efforts of her and her husband to build a home there. In the book, she introduces readers to the architecture of Morocco and explains the historical, religious and practical forces that influenced its distinctive features. She takes readers inside homes, gardens, courtyards and other spaces, each with its own style but all infused with Moroccan character. She also gives readers specific ideas for incorporating the vivid colors, lively patterns and handmade quality into their own

aches, nausea and fatigue, Kahn says. More serious indicators are neck stiffness, headache, vomiting and high fever. “It can take hours to days to get the symptoms,” he says, adding, “obviously, the majority of bites are fine.” What to do about them: Stay indoors as much as possible, especially from dusk till dawn. Kahn also recommends the three Ds: Drain standing water. Use DEET insect repellent. Dress in light colors and (if you can stand it in the heat) long sleeves and pants. If you get bitten (by mosquitoes or any bug), clean the area with soap and water, he says. If the area is swelling, put ice in a washcloth or a sealable plastic bag so it won’t directly touch your skin; you don’t need to be worrying about frostbite, too.

Daughter is grossed out by night noises coming from parents’ room Dear Abby: One night I woke up to my cat scratching at my bedroom door to be let in. When I got up and opened the door, I heard my parents making love. They were so loud it grossed me out, because my little sister is 10 and we share a room right next to theirs. She doesn’t know about this kind of stuff. I want to tell them they don’t need to be doing that, because what if she got scared and woke up and tried to go in there? What should I do — tell them to go to a motel? — Grossed Out in Madison, Miss. Dear Grossed Out: Do NOT tell your parents to go to a motel. If the cat

hadn’t wakened you and you hadn’t opened your bedroom door, you wouldn’t have heard a thing. Be glad that you have parents who love each other and that you didn’t overhear them fighting. If your sister ever wakes up and gets scared, she should know she can wake you up.

varies) is talking about them behind their backs. Of course, none of it is true, but it has caused a huge rift in our family. Family members have had big arguments over these calls. This is tearing our family to pieces, and no one knows for sure if she’s having problems or if she is telling the truth. HELP! My cousins are no longer speaking to one another or me. I’m not close to her, but I have fallen prey to her phone calls to others. What should I do? — Slandered in Indiana

Dear Abby: I have an aunt (by marriage) who I think may be suffering from mental issues. All of a sudden, she is calling members of our family and telling them that “so-and-so” (it

Dear Slandered: A sudden change in personality can indeed be a sign of mental illness or a physical problem. Those family members who ARE still speaking to one another should

approach the uncle to whom the woman is married and express the family’s concerns. She may need a physical and neurological evaluation. Dear Abby: Have you ever dealt with work addiction in your column? Many mental health care professionals do not take workaholism seriously — probably because many of them suffer from the problem themselves. I researched the topic because the behavior of a close friend was making our relationship suffer. Workaholics Anonymous exists, and some books have been written on the subject. Perhaps you could spread the word. — Caring Friend in San Francisco Dear Caring Friend: I’m pleased to do that. Workaholics Anonymous is

an international organization that was founded in 1983. It’s a 12-step program based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous for individuals who feel their work lives have gotten out of control. It offers mutual support in solving problems related to compulsive overworking, and it also helps families who are affected. To find out about weekly meetings, contact Workaholics Anonymous, P.O. Box 289, Menlo Park, CA 94026; call 510-273-9253; or go to www.workaholics-anonymous.org. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Advertisers understand that when a message has multiple exposures, the response rate will increase. You’ll use this principle to your advantage, putting an idea out there several times until you get interest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t expect people to be on your side, but you’ll be pleased to find out who is. They might not think of it as “your side,” but without a doubt, they share a similar point of view. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Nothing is haphazard in your world now. You put everything you have into what you’re doing. If that is not possible, you won’t take it on in the first place. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Seeing yourself as victorious is the first step in making it so. It gives you the focus you need to figure out the “how.” You may not get it right the first time, but hang on to the vision regardless. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Smart shoppers know that “special deals” are only truly “special” if they happen very infrequently. Using this principle, you’ll be careful not to overuse the special thing you have to offer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Avoid the one who makes mysterious promises. There is no magic formula to follow now. Logic prevails. Efforts that are correctly focused will lead to success. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s a point at which too much negotiating hurts a relationship. Out of respect, you may just go with what another person wants without making a counteroffer.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be better off tomorrow because you followed the plan today. You may be tempted to veer off, but get right back on track. Repeat the same action several times; a habit is being formed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll rely on word of mouth for your best information and will be unlikely to buy into anything without a personal referral. It’s an excellent policy now that will keep you from getting what you don’t need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your imagination is strong, and it fills the gaps in your knowledge with plausible answers. With intelligence, you’ll rule out some of what the imagination presents, and some of it you’ll investigate further. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will influence others with whatever small acts you can do for the environment. For instance, using your own water bottle or grocery bags could be part of the change the whole world needs. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though you may change what you’re doing in order to harmonize with the dominant desires, fears and beliefs of the times, you never completely lose your unique “you-ness.” TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 18). Your body-mind connection will be strengthened in many ways throughout the year. You’ll enjoy being social, and the fun you create with friends will relieve stress and contribute positively to health. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 1, 24, 38 and 19.
