DUI arrest may be a first; case seen as legal challenge By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The arrest of a Throop woman on evidence of driving under the influence of bath salts is believed to be the first in the region and possibly the state. As the case against Michele Pace, 39, begins a slow process through the court system, a

federal appellate court, which ruled Munley had improperly considered other conduct when imposing the Kulick sentence. The case stemmed from an incident in December 2005 in which Kulick brandished a handgun and threatened an employee he suspected of stealing. Kulick was forbidden from possessing any firearms due to a previously conviction on federal tax charge. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Munley had improperly considered Kulick’s extortion of the employee when calculating the sentencing guideline range on the gun charge. It sent the case back to Munley for resentencing. The U.S. Attorney’s Office had asked Munley to sentence Kulick within the new guideline range, which was 24 to 30

SCRANTON – An area businessman who played a role in exposing alleged case-fixing in Luzerne County Court was released from federal prison 20 months early on Wednesday, based, in part, on an appellate court ruling that negated his original sentence. Robert Kulick, 62, of Bear Creek Township, was released after U.S. District Judge James Munley reduced his sentence to match the 17 months Kulick had already served on a charge of illegally possessing firearms. Kulick was originally sentenced to 37 months in prison in September 2009. The sentence was overturned in December by a See KULICK, Page 14A

Rogers’ watchword is service The Harveys Lake lawyer is looking for a spot on the Luzerne County bench.

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Jennifer Rogers says part of her would miss being an attorney if she is elected to serve as a Luzerne County judge. But being a judge would allow the Kingston attorney to serve the residents of the county in a fair and honest manner, Rogers told The Times Leader’s endorsement board. Rogers, 43, of Harveys Lake, is one of 16 candidates vying for one of six open seats on the Court of Common Pleas. She said her experience qualified her for the position in 2009 when she ran for judge, and that experience has only increased in the past two years, as well as her personal characteristics.

Retirement health costs could decline Health insurance reform is expected to reduce costs of prescriptions, study says. By MARK JEWELL AP Personal Finance Writer

BOSTON — Rising health care costs are a given. But for the first time in 10 years, the outlook is improving for new retirees wondering whether they’ll be able to pay their medical bills throughout their retirements. A 65-year-old couple retiring this year will need $230,000, on average, to cover medical expenses in retirement, according to a study to be released today by Fi-

delity Investments. That’s down 8 percent from the $250,000 projection the Bostonbased financial services company made a year ago. That’s notable because the total had risen each year since Fidelity made its initial calculation of $160,000 in 2002. Annual increases have averaged 6 percent. Fidelity attributes its optimism to President Obama’s year-old health care overhaul, which will reduce many seniors’ out-ofpocket expenses for prescription drugs. The projections are part of Fidelity’s business helping employers design workplace benefits programs. The study is based on

"We expect that trend to continue when we look to 2012 and beyond," said Sunit Patel, a senior vice president for benefits consulting at Fidelity. Fidelity’s estimate is a projection of what an average couple would need. Actual costs will vary widely, depending on a couple’s medical needs and how long they live. The projection also doesn’t factor in most dental services, or long-term care, such as costs from living in a nursing home.

NASA craft photographs Mercury’s battle scars

The planet, visited by the Messenger spacecraft, is covered in craters. By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer

NEW YORK — Think the moon has many craters? New photos from the first spacecraft to orbit Mercury show the tiny inner planet has far more impressive pockmarks from regular highspeed peltings by space rocks. NASA’s Messenger spacecraft, which began orbiting the planet less than two weeks ago, reveals a planet full of craters from pieces of asteroids and comets. “Mercury has had an exposed surface for at least 3.5 to 4 billion years and some of those surfaces are extremely cratered to the point where there are so many craters they start to obscure one another,” said mission chief scientist Sean Solomon. He said it was surprising how many secondary craters there are. Those are craters created by the falling soil kicked up from space rock collisions. Those initial space rock crashes “throw out a lot of material in the explosive process,” Solomon said. One area of the far north of Mercury had never been seen by previous spacecraft on mere fly-bys.

closer to the gravitational pull of the sun so they smack Mercury harder, causing the soil to bounce higher and make bigger secondary craters. The fact that Mercury, unlike the moon, is shrinking and has a magnetic field could be another factor. Mercury is also darker and appears more weather-beaten than the moon, because of “the constant bombardment of the surface by dust particles and small meteoroids,” Solomon said. Messenger has been circling Mercury only since March 17. In its first day of photo transmission, the space probe sent back 224 pictures, Solomon said. By the end of this week, NASA will have received more than 15,000 pictures from the $446 million spacecraft. The first imaged offered a glimpse of the planet’s dark, frigid south pole, where scientists think there may be ice. But the photo isn’t close enough to tell if radar images from Earth that hint at ice are correct, Solomon said. Photos of the poles are scheduled for later in the mission.

W-B city closes apartment unit By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The city Wednesday said it shut down an apartment at 13 E. Chestnut St. under its “three strikes” ordinance applying to nuisance rental units. The city’s community action team closed unit No. 3 in the building and suspended the rental license of the unit for up to six months. The team used a city ordinance that calls for immediate closure of rental units by the code enforcement office.

“The ordinance states that the unit would remain closed for up to six months until the reasons for the closure are remedied,” said Drew McLaughlin, a spokesman for the city. It was labeled a nuisance because of arrests in the apartment and other issues such as disorderly conduct and assault, he added. It also was declared unlivable due to unsanitary conditions, said McLaughlin. The apartment’s tenants were gone as of Wednesday, he said. McLaughlin identified the building owner as Repacom LLC, whose contact was listed as Allan

Cohen of Bergenfield, N.J. The company could not be reached for comment. In order for the apartment to be reopened it would have to pass inspections by the city’s health and code departments, said McLaughlin. In a prepared statement, Mayor Tom Leighton said the city is committed to protecting the integrity of its neighborhoods. “Tenants who violated the law and landlords who rent to them will face penalties for disturbing the peace of our city,” said Leighton.

HASB offers administrators early-retirement window By JIM MORRISSEY Times Leader Correspondent

HAZLE TWP. – Hazleton Area School Board agreed Wednesday evening to offer an early-retirement incentive window for qualified administrators. This incentive, effective March 25 through April 27, provides $75,000 in health care benefits to the retirees. To qualify for the incentive, the retiree must have at least 25 years of service and be at least 50 years old. The board authorized attorney Carl Beard to draft a memorandum of understanding with the Administrators Association for

the incentive. The board also decided administrators will receive a two-year wage freeze for the 2011-2012 and the 2012-2013 fiscal years. District Business Manager Tony Ryba said the reason for the wage freeze is in the event the district is not in the same position it is this year. Ryba also stated there would be no other retirement incentives available. The board tabled a recommendation to hire Edwin J. Gunshore, Jr. as construction project manager for the McAdoo Elementary construction project at a cost of $5,000 per month.

The board went into executive session to discuss the district’s insurance coverage after Joseph J. Joyce Jr. of the Joyce Insurance Group in Pittston told the board it should rescind the contract awarded to the Dryfoos Group of Hazleton last week and award it to his firm because Joyce’s bid was actually lower with the same coverage and deductible. He said the blanket coverage and the deductible amounts in the bid were clear and simple typos. The board adjourned and officials stated Ryba and solicitor Chris Slusser would resolve the issue today with both companies.

LOCAL Little League problem resolved Wilkes-Barre will help North End build a new clubhouse because the old one was sold in a package deal. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The city has agreed to help the North End Little League build a new clubhouse after it was discovered that a structure utilized by the league for storage was included in the sale of the defunct No. 9 firehouse. Joe Kowalski, an official with the Little League, said members were initially upset to learn that the building, which is located behind the firehouse, was sold. The matter was quickly resolved, however, after city officials offered to assist with the construction of a new structure.

Mayor Tom Leighton on Wednesday said city officials did not know the building in question was utilized by the league when the property was sold in November to Rick Lombardo for $42,000. Once it became aware, the city offered to provide material for the new clubhouse, which will be built with volunteer labor. The cost of the material, which was not immediately available, will be paid out of a special recreation fund, not the general fund, Leighton said. The issue has stirred a political controversy between Leighton and Charlotte Raup, who is one of two Democrats who is challenging Leighton in the May primary. Raup and Jim Hayward, a former city administrator who supports Raup’s candidacy, said they believe the city should have done more research to ensure it

knew what was included in the property before finalizing the sale. “Evidently, the mayor and city council never looked or asked about the deed to the property or what they were selling,” Hayward wrote in a post on his Internet blog, “Stop Corruption Now.” Leighton on Wednesday disputed

that. He said the city did know the second structure was included in the sale. It just didn’t realize it was being used by the Little League. He said city officials met with the Little League on March 3 and were able to See CLUBHOUSE, Page 4A

“Monetization” would allow county to make up for money lost when sale of Valley Crest fell through.

By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County Commissioners are exploring a plan that could compensate for $4.4 million lost from cancellation of the former Valley Crest Nursing Home sale. The plan, known as “monetization,” would sell the right to claim 2010 back taxes owed to the county in exchange for up-front cash. An outside collection agency reviews the amount of money owed in back taxes and offers the county a percentage, usually 90 to 93 percent, up front. The agency then receives the full amount collected by the county for these properties, assuming the risk that some money may never be collected. The county has been monetizing its back-tax debt for several years. The county is owed an estimated $8 million in back taxes for 2010, said county Commissioner Stephen A. Urban, who briefly discussed the monetization plans during a Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce legisThe plan, lative update breakfast Wednesday. known as Commissioners “monetizawon’t know the tion,” would amount of up-front sell the right money being offered until they process pubto claim 2010 licly sought proposals back taxes from outside companies, Urban said. owed to the The county is also county in working with its finanexchange for cial advisor, Public Fiup-front cash. nancial Management, to try to secure a credit rating needed to pursue refinancing of county debt at lower interest rates, Urban said. The county owes about $464 million – almost half a billion – in debt, including interest, which won’t be repaid until 2027 at the current schedule. This year, the county is paying $21.89 million toward debt – $9.5 million in principal and $12.3 million in interest. Some county bond repayments have 8 percent interest rates, and refinancing could lower them to 4 percent to save money, he said. The county’s employee pension fund was also discussed by Urban and Commissioner Thomas Cooney during the breakfast because the gap between fund assets and future liabilities is projected at around $50.7 million. County taxpayers will likely have to continue pumping millions of dollars into the fund annually for at least the next decade to keep the fund stable. This year’s taxpayer subsidy: $9.5 million. Urban said the fund paid around $4 million to county retirees when he became a commissioner in 2000, and the tab is now around $18 million. Commissioners are powerless because state law establishes the type of pension that must be provided to county workers, Urban said, noting that pension plans won’t change under the county’s switch to home rule government.

Feds take W-B bus co. off road Super Luxury Tours has lost its right to operate after a March 14 fatal crash on the N.J. Turnpike. From staff and wire reports

A Wilkes-Barre bus company involved in a crash that killed the driver and a passenger in New Jersey has been taken off the road by federal transportation officials. The U.S. Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Adminis-

tration has taken away permission for Super Luxury Tours Inc. to operate. A bus operated by the company crashed on the New Jersey Turnpike as it traveled from New York City’s Chinatown to Philadelphia on March 14, killing the 50-year-old driver and a passenger and injuring several other passengers. The cause of the crash remains under investigation. The company had two addresses in Wilkes-Barre, according to reports on file. It listed115 N. Meade St. But one of the building’s owners, James Davis of

Hanover Township, said he had no knowledge of the bus company operating out of that address. The other location was in an office at 17 E. Market St. A sign posted in the street-level office saidthecompanywilloccupythespace. But the office door was locked and the lights were out Wednesday afternoon. The company has been paying rent since November but has not yet moved in, said landlord Nicholas Tsioles. Earlier this month Tsioles said the company will soon open its office in his building.

MARK GUYDISH OPINION

NEPA’s version of ‘Do 2 wrongs make a right?’

T

he old saying runs something like this: If you do the crime, be ready to serve the time. In light of some of the punishment meted out during this, Our Age of Endless Corruption, the adage needs an asterisk and a footnote, something like: If you do the crime, be ready to serve the time.* *Or be sure that, during the commission of the crime, you can gather enough dirt on other crooks to dime them out in exchange for a reduced sentence. The two most recent examples: Harry “Jersey Boy” Cardoni and Robert “The Rat” Kulick. Cardoni is the shyster lawyer who got former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole to fix an insurance arbitration case. In exchange, Toole got repeated free use of a New Jersey beach house Cardoni owns as a rental property. Kulick is a crooked businessman convicted of tax evasion years ago who more recently faced charges of brandishing a firearm – forbidden under his tax evasion conviction. He finked on case-fixing done by former county judges Michael “Cocky” Conahan and Mark “Shameless” Ciavarella, going so far as to tie Conahan to reputed mob boss Billy D’Elia. So far, Cardoni’s biggest punishment has been the suspension of his license to practice law. While feds haven’t promised he won’t face charges, Cardoni said under oath he’s hoping to avoid that problem through his testimony against Toole. Kulick, on the other hand, was sentenced to 37 months on the firearm charge, but appealed and got the case sent back for re-sentencing. He had served 17 months before the re-sentencing took place yesterday. At that hearing, the judge changed the prison term to “time served.” So Kulick did the crime and served the time, but he served 20 months less than originally ordered. What are we telling business people? There are those who think this is outright unjust. A crook is a crook, after all, and honest people tend to get more satisfaction from the judicial system when all crooks are punished equally. But we all know what’s going on. As I’ve said here previously, feds seem to be swapping lighter sentences for a few crooks in exchange for catching a lot more crooks. As I’ve also pointed out before, federal sentencing guidelines recommend stiffer sentences for public officials than for private individuals. The theory is simple and easy to accept. Private business people who offer bribes or kickbacks are schmucks without scruples who betray the people they deal with; public officials who take bribes or kickbacks are schmucks without scruples who betray all of us. If the choice is between sending Cardoni to jail or getting Toole off the bench and in prison, that logic says we should give Cardoni a break in order to nail Toole. Fair enough, I guess. And if shortening Kulick’s jail time nets us more charges against more public officials, maybe that’s for the best, too. But after so many arrests of public officials who took bribes, and so little jail time (so far) for the private business people who paid them, one wonders if the message is being skewed. Are we telling all business people it doesn’t pay to pay off politicians? Or are we telling them to be sure they have enough evidence to sink the politicians in case they get caught.

Area man acquitted of rape

Daniel Drury Sr. testified false allegation he assaulted girl was result of charge he filed. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – After nearly seven hours of deliberations, a Luzerne County jury acquitted a Nanticoke man of raping an 11year-old girl in 2002. The jury of 11 men and one woman found Daniel Drury Sr., not guilty of five related charges, including rape of a child. “I’m not guilty,” Drury, 46, said while leaving the Bernard C. “It’s all Brominski because of courthouse building allegations…that Wednesday evening. “It’s all because of allesomeone has to go gations…that someone has to through go through this because of a this bebad divorce. It’s cause of a a shame…” Drury’s attorbad diney, Thomas vorce. …” Cometa, said Daniel Drury Sr. he is happy the of Nanticoke jury listened to evidence and gave the case great thought before delivering its verdict of not guilty on charges of rape of a person under 13 years old, aggravated indecent assault, incest, indecent assault and corruption of minors. Prosecutors alleged Drury raped the girl shortly after her 11th birthday in 2002. The now 19-year-old woman did not report the incident until 2008 when she began having vivid nightmares, she testified Monday. The woman cried while the verdict was read Wednesday evening, while members of Drury’s family hugged and gave Drury the thumbs-up.

Daniel Drury Sr. leaves the Brominski Building on Wednesday after being found not guilty of raping an 11 year-old girl in 2002.

Cometa said the delay in reporting the incident could be one factor the jury weighed in its verdict. Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello, who presided over the trial, said Drury will be released from the county prison pending any detainers. Drury testified Tuesday he believed the alleged rape story was fabricated against him in retaliation for filing harassment charges against his ex-wife. He testified that in 2008 he filed harassment charges against his ex-wife, Gail, and that at a hearing before a district judge both were found not guilty of harassment. He said he had a drinking problem at the time, and rather than "getting drunk and doing something stupid," he had been planning for some time to move to Florida and decided to follow

through with his plans. He said he moved to Florida in late 2008, not because he wanted to flee Nanticoke to avoid getting arrested, but because he wanted to start a new life away from his ex-wife and his drinking problem. He said he had no idea charges were being filed against him. He said he knew Luzerne County Children and Youth Services had conducted an investigation on him, but he added that he thought that investigation was closed. Drury also said he did speak with Nanticoke police about the alleged incident, but the police never told him they were filing charges against him and never told him not to leave Nanticoke. Nanticoke police, Drury said, never said they didn’t believe him when he denied the allegations, and said they would call him if they needed him.

City officials met with officials from the Little League,” Leighton said. “We came to a solution that we would assist them with the construction of a building there.” Raup said the storage facility is only part of the issue, however. She’s also concerned about the fate of a veterans monument consisting of an engraved headstone and flag pole located in front of the firehouse. The monument is on land that was includ-

ed with the sale. Raup said the monument is the focal point of the annual Memorial Day parade. She is concerned the public will no longer have access to it. Leighton said the city included a stipulation in the sales agreement with Lombardo that ensures the public will continue to have access to the monument. The stipulation is binding upon any future buyers of the property as well, he said.

Prosecutors can seek witness ID in ‘Melrose’ star crash The Associated Press

SOMERVILLE, N.J. — A judge has ruled that prosecutors in a case stemming from a fatal car crash involving a former "Melrose Place" actress can seek the

identity of a person who claimed on a newspaper website that he was a witness and that authorities were "lying about the facts." Prosecutors say TV and movie actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer,

of Hopewell, was driving drunk at the time of the crash. They say her sport utility vehicle hit a sedan driven by a Montgomery man who was turning into his driveway, killing the man’s wife.

Limits on public union bargaining in Ohio nears

Foreign minister apparently defects, but government denies story

Gadhafi’s troops advancing By RYAN LUCAS Associated Press

Vietnam veterans pause to remember

AJDABIYA, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s ground forces recaptured a strategic oil town Wednesday and moved within striking distance of another major eastern city, nearly reversing the gains rebels made since international airstrikes began. Rebels pleaded for more help, while a U.S. official said government forces are making themselves harder to target by using civilian “battle wagons” with makeshift armaments instead of tanks. Western powers kept up the pressure to force Gadhafi out with new airstrikes in other parts of Libya, hints that they may arm the opposition and intense negotiations behind the scenes to find a country to give haven to Libya’s leader of more than 40 years.

tough line, blaming two weeks of popular fury on a foreign conspiracy. Bashar Assad’s own officials billed his speech as an introduction of major change and the turnaround infuriated protesters who vowed to keep up with their extraordinary cries for reform. The conflicting messages also raised questions about a possible rift in one of the Middle East’s most rigid regimes, where Assad and a tight coterie of family and security services hold all the reins power. “Syria is being subjected to a major conspiracy,” Assad said in his first public comments since the turmoil began, touched off by the arrest of several teenagers who scrawled antigovernment graffiti on a wall. Human rights groups say more than 60 people have been killed since March 18 as security forces cracked down on the demonstrations.

Even as it advanced militarily, Gadhafi’s regime suffered a blow to its inner circle with the apparent defection of Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa. Koussa flew from Tunisia to an airport outside London and announced he was resigning from his post, according to a statement from the British government. Moussa Ibrahim, a Libyan government spokesman in Tripoli, denied the foreign minister has defected saying he was in London on a “diplomatic mission.” It was not immediately possible to confirm either statement with Koussa or people close to him. Gadhafi’s justice and interior ministers resigned shortly after the uprising began last month, but Koussa would be the first high-profile resignation since the international air

campaign began. Airstrikes have neutralized Gadhafi’s air force and pounded his army, but his ground forces remain far better armed, trained and organized than the opposition. The shift in momentum back to the government’s side

is hardening a U.S. view that the poorly equipped opposition is probably incapable of prevailing without decisive Western intervention — either an all-out U.S.-led military assault on regime forces or a decision to arm the rebels.

Cancer drug to be covered

Medicare officials said Wednesday that the program will pay the $93,000 cost of prostate cancer drug Provenge, an innovative therapy that gives men suffering from the disease an extra four months to live, on average. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid said the biotech drug made by Dendreon Corp. is a “reasonable and necessary” medicine. The decision ensures that thousands of men will be able to receive the drug through the federal government. The agency will take comments on the decision for 90 days before making it final. Medicare is legally prohibited from considering price when deciding whether to pay for a new treatment. The Food and Drug Administration approved Provenge last April and in most cases Medicare automatically covers drugs cleared by the agency. WASHINGTON

Bullet, hole found in plane

Investigators have found a bullet aboard a US Airways plane that was grounded in Charlotte, N.C., after a pilot making a pre-flight inspection found a hole in the fuselage, a law enforcement official said Wednesday. The official said there is no evidence so far that there was an intent to target the plane. FBI agents were interviewing ground crew members at both ends of the plane’s flight Monday from Philadelphia to Charlotte. Agents also have interviewed passengers. The location of the hole found above a window toward the rear of the Boeing 737 suggests that a bullet came in from above, not from below, said the official. WASHINGTON

GOP seeks probe of AARP

AARP lobbied for the new health care law and now it stands to profit, Republican lawmakers charged Wednesday as they called for the IRS to investigate whether the powerful interest group deserves to keep its federal tax exemption. Three veteran GOP representatives released a report that estimates the seniors lobby could make an additional $1 billion over 10 years on health insurance plans whose sales are expected to pick up under the new law. They also questioned seven-figure compensation for some AARP executives. "Based on the available evidence, substantial questions remain about whether AARP should maintain its tax-exempt status," said the report, released by Reps. Wally Herger of California, Charles Boustany of Louisiana and Dave Reichert of Washington.

TOKYO — Fears about contaminated seafood spread Wednesday despite reassurances that radiation in the waters off Japan’s troubled atomic plant pose no health risk, as the country’s respected emperor consoled evacuees from the tsunami and nuclear emergency zone.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Republican-led Ohio House has voted to severely limit the collective bargaining rights of 350,000 public workers, sending a bill that’s sparked weeks of pro-labor protests back to the state Senate. The full House approved the measure Wednesday on a 53-44 vote. A vote in the GOP-controlled Senate could come later Wednesday. That chamber narrowly passed a previous version of it. The measure affects safety workers, teachers, nurses and a host of other government personnel. It allows unions to negotiate wages but not health care, sick time or pension benefits. It also does away with automatic pay increases in favor of merit raises. Gov.

House. The Senate, also controlled by Republicans, narrowly passed the bill on a 17-16 vote this month. It would have to agree to the revisions before Kasich could sign it into law. Kasich, a first-term Republican, supports the proposal and is comfortable with the changes, his spokesman said. Contentious debates over restricting collective bargaining have popped up in statehouses across the country, most notably in Wisconsin, where the governor signed into law this month a bill eliminating most of state workers’ collective bargaining rights. That measure exempts police officers and firefighters; Ohio’s does not. The Ohio bill would apply to public workers across the state, such as police officers, firefighters, teachers and state employees. Workers would also be banned from striking. Much of the legislation remained intact even with the committee’s more than a dozen changes.

A purr-fect storm; super-loud cat heads for record books A college in England confirms that, yes, Smokey can out-purr any other feline. By RAPHAEL G. SATTER Associated Press

LONDON — No need to bell this cat: A gray-and-white tabby by the name of Smokey has cat-apulted to fame with purring so loud it has been recorded at a potentially record-setting 73 decibels. The British community college that

measured the sound said it peaked at 16 times louder than that of the average cat. By some estimates, that is about as noisy as busy traffic, a hair dryer or a vacuum cleaner. The 12-year-old, ordinary-size feline first came to national attention last month when her owner, Ruth Adams, decided to run a local competition for the most powerful purr. Hoping to see Smokey recognized as top cat, Adams asked Northampton College in central England to provide the equipment needed to submit a

Last week, the college dispatched a team with specialized sound equipment to record Smokey purring in the comfort of the family home in the village of Pitsford, about 70 miles northwest of London. The recording has been submitted to Guinness World Records, the college said.

Yudichak has high hopes for tax on gas extraction

The Luzerne County Democrat claims bipartisan support in the state Senate. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

State Sen. John T. Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, said Wednesday the natural gas severance tax he is proposing could generate more than $126 million in its first year and more than $406 million by 2016. Yudichak announced the proposed tax on natural gas extraction at a press conference in Harrisburg on Wednesday, the day after he introduced the bill in the state Senate. The estimated tax revenues are based on the number of gas wells currently in operation in the state and additional wells expected to be permitted in 2011, Yudichak said. Revenue from the tax would be shared equally by three program areas: • The Commonwealth Financing Authority for water supply, wastewater treatment, storm water and flood control projects; • The Environmental Stewardship Fund (Growing Greener); • Local governments in areas of Pennsylvania that experience direct effects of natural gas drilling. “In areas where there is drilling activity, local governments are faced with a number of difficult issues,” Yudichak said. “Revenue from a sever-

ance tax will benefit those communities.” Yudichak’s plan would impose a tax of 2 percent of Yudichak the gross value of natural gas severed at the wellhead during the first three years of a well’s production, increasing to 5 percent after three years. The tax rate would revert to 2 percent if a well’s rate of production fell below 150 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and to zero if it fell below 60 million cubic feet per day. If implemented, the tax would take effect July 1. A severance tax bill passed the state House last year under then Gov. Ed Rendell, a proponent of the tax on gas production, but the tax died in the Republican-controlled Senate. Gov. Tom Corbett opposes a severance tax. Yudichak said his tax is different from last year’s effort both in its terms and in that it claims bipartisan support. The bill is co-sponsored by Republican Sen. Edwin Erickson, R-Delaware County, and Yudichak said it has at least three Republican supporters. “The fact that this bill has bipartisan support shows the need for this tax goes beyond partisan politics,” Erickson said Wednesday. “I believe this bill invests the tax revenues in a responsible way for the protection of our environment and the communities directly affected by the expanding natural gas industry.”

Pa. liquor store backers plead case By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Proponents of keeping the state’s liquor store system intact offered testimony Wednesday before the House Democratic Policy Committee, and one witness said privatizing the system would not favor taxpayers. “There’s no question, the math doesn’t work,” said Wendell Young, president of the United Food Workers Local 1776 and chairman of the United Food and Commercial Workers PA Wine and Spirits Council. Young said the state system does a better job managing the sale of wine and spirits than the private sector.

“There’s no question regarding the impact on society,” he said. Young told the panel that the push to privatize the liquor system would destroy a valuable public asset. “It makes sense only if you’re an investment speculator looking to turn a quick profit by investing in and then flipping licenses,” he said. “It makes sense only if you’re a chainstore retailer looking to clear some shelf space and you want your untrained and minimum-wage clerks selling this product.” Privatizing the system won’t create any new jobs, Young said, and it won’t create jobs for the 5,700 current state liquor system employees who would be out of

work if the system was sold. He said his research has shown that in other states where privatization exists, the stores that get liquor licenses use their existing employees to stock the shelves. Young also testified prices will not go down under a private system. Other states have shown his statement to be true, he said. State Rep. Michael Sturla, chairman of the policy committee, said Wednesday’s hearing, held in Redington Hall at the University of Scranton, was the fourth hearing on the issue. He said hearings were held in Philadelphia, Erie and Allegheny counties. Rep. Kevin Murphy, DScranton, hosted the Scranton hearing. Murphy said that over the past

five years, the state’s liquor system has contributed about $2.3 billion to the treasury. Murphy, who formerly served as a liquor store examiner in the state Auditor General’s Office, used to audit the state’s liquor system. He said he knows the system is selfsufficient and contributes about $500 million annually to the budget. Murphy said all expenses are paid – leases, salaries, benefits and inventory – by the sale of wine and spirits. “The proposal’s numbers don’t add up, and it is ludicrous to sell off a state asset that returns millions annually in revenue back to the taxpayers for a one-time injection of revenue,” Murphy said. When state Rep. Mike Turzai,

R-Bradford Woods, proposed the idea of selling off the liquor system, he said the state would realize about $2 billion in revenue. Young and other witnesses and committee members rebutted that claim.

“To get $2 billion, licenses would have to sell for an average of $2.3 million each,” Young said. “That just doesn’t happen in our country. The average sale price for a liquor license will be about $200,000.”

State rep.: privatization bill on way

Nasser

REAL ESTATE INC. Since 1950

SCRANTON – State Rep. Mike Turzai said he will propose legislation aimed at privatizing the state’s liquor system, ending what he called the state’s “wholesale and retail monopoly” on liquor sales. Turzai, of Bradford Woods, said his legislation will be based on House Bill 2350, which he introduced last year. He provided a summary of House Bill 2350 to explain his position on privatization, which he said would move Pennsylvania into the 21st century. “This approach will result in better selection, cheaper prices and more convenience for consumers,” Turzai said. “In addition, this proposal will have the beneficial effect of filling state coffers to help us meet the looming fiscal crisis in front of us. We can do this while actually strengthening law enforcement and doing better at curbing irresponsible drinking. “It is a proposal whose time has come.” Turzai said he plans to introduce his legislation in May. Stephen Miskin, a spokesman for Turzai, said Gov. Tom Corbett has commissioned a study of Pennsylvania’s liquor system. The study is expected to analyze the revenue that would be brought in by selling the stores. At Wednesday’s House Democratic Policy Committee hearing held in Scranton, Chairman Mike Sturla said he was told the new legislation will be House Bill 11. “I find it interesting that we know the number of the bill, but we don’t know what’s in it,” Sturla said. The study by Pennsylvania Financial Management will be completed in mid-July, said Corbett’s press secretary Kevin Harley. PFM, which had ties to former Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell, was still under contract with Rendell’s administration. Corbett is using PFM under that contract. The cost of the contract wasn’t available. Turzai said the study should be completed by summer. Regarding testimony offered at Wednesday’s hearing in Scranton and at other Democratic Policy Committee hearings, Turzai said, “Unions are just protecting their turf.” He said many of the state employees will find “very good jobs in the private sector given their skill levels.” “The notion that the state’s general fund gets this massive annual infusion of money from the LCB itself is a myth,” Turzai said.

Drug fighter considers ‘shooter’ video danger At issue is a game portraying people who have shot others inside schools. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

A video game that casts players in the roles of the masterminds of the Columbine and Virginia Tech massacres has caught the ire of an area drug-and-alcohol counselor. Carmen F. Ambrosino, CEO of Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug Services, said the game, titled School Shooter: North American Tour 2012, crosses the line of good taste, and he wants parents, teachers and school ad-

ministrators to be aware that it is under development and may be available soon. “We know there are links between crime and drugs and alcohol,” Ambrosino said. “Kids are impressionable; they’re vulnerable; they’re here-and-now oriented; they’re fixated and fascinated on these sorts of topics.” Ambrosino said he has notified the superintendents of area schools and federal and state legislators representing the area as well as major retailers such as Kmart, Walmart and Target about the game. He issued the notice at the request of the state Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs, which is urging treatment and prevention

professionals to take a formal stand against the game’s release. “We feel this is a serious threat to the health and safety of students and campuses,” Ambrosino said. “Acts of violence and suicide are linked to alcohol and substance use… BDAP advocates for stronger prevention policies, and this would include supporting efforts to prevent this harmful and dangerous video game from being released.” The game itself is actually a modification of the first-person shooter Half Life 2. According to the website of developer Checkerboarded, it will outfit players with weapons used by Columbine High School shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold and

Virginia Tech killer Seung-Hui Cho, among others, and turn them loose inside school-themed levels. “The possibilities are endless, you are free to do whatever you want. As long as it involves shooting people,” the game’s website states. At the end of the game, players will have the option of committing suicide, the game description adds. The website, copyrighted 2010, says the game is still in development, with no release date set. An e-mail seeking comment from the Checkerboarded Studios was not returned Wednesday. While research indicates a

game such as School Shooter may not be dangerous in and of itself, Ambrosino said, in the hands of an at-risk teen, it could have adverse effects. Ambrosino said his organiza-

tion has never spoken out about violence in video games before, but that the game’s content “seems to be so far outside the boundaries of what is decent and acceptable,” he had to speak up.

Charge of false reports forwarded

Officer says woman said she lied when she said boyfriend threatened her with knife. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A woman who city police allege lied about being threatened by her boyfriend with a knife will face a charge in Luzerne County Court. Officer Paul Joseph Crawford charged Megan Coolbaugh with false reports to law enforcement after he allegedly overheard her say she lied about the knife during a domestic dispute with John Sims on Jan. 13. Crawford investigated a do-

mestic dispute involving Coolbaugh and Sims at their Poplar Street home. Coolbaugh was standing outside holding an infant wrapped in a jacket and not wearing any pants. She said Sims held a knife to her throat, threatened her and refused to let her and the infant back into the house. Sims was charged with simple assault and terroristic threats. Those charges were dismissed at a preliminary hearing in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on Jan. 25 when Coolbaugh refused to testify. On Wednesday during Coolbaugh’s preliminary hearing before District Judge Andrew Ba-

“I heard Sims say to Ms. Coolbaugh, ‘You shouldn’t lie to police.’ And she replied, ‘Yeah, I know,’” Officer Paul Joseph Crawford testified.

rilla, Crawford testified he overheard Coolbaugh telling Sims she lied about the knife. “I heard Sims say to Ms. Coolbaugh, ‘You shouldn’t lie to police.’ And she replied, ‘Yeah, I know,’” Craw-

ford testified. Crawford said a 911 recording of the Jan. 13 phone call by Coolbaugh has her saying Sims threatened her with a knife. Coolbaugh’s attorney, John

Hakim, asked Crawford if he knew what Coolbaugh and Sims were talking about when he eavesdropped on their private conversation. “I have to believe they were telling the truth because they did not realize I was behind them,” Crawford said. “I was behind them. She said I just wanted him to leave the house.” Hakim said Crawford possibly misunderstood what Coolbaugh and Sims were discussing. Barilla determined Crawford established a case against Coolbaugh, sending a single count of false reports to law enforcement to county court. She remains free without bail.

Court tosses out couple’s suit over old W-B bakery By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a couple who claimed WilkesBarre city officials thwarted their efforts to buy the Old River Road Bakery so that it could be sold to a crony of Mayor Tom Leighton and city attorney William Vinsko. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo on Wednesday said allegations raised by Tyler and Anto-

nia Hammond did not constitute a legally recognizable claim under due process protections within the U.S. Constitution. The Hammonds filed suit against the city in 2009 relating to the decision to remove the Old River Road Bakery from a tax sale list one day before the sale. The suit alleged the action was taken to pave the way for the sale of the building to a person who was a private client of Leighton’s real estate business and Vinsko’s law firm. The main claim within the suit rested on allegations that city officials provided false information to the Hammonds in a Right to

Know request they had filed regarding the property. They claimed that action was taken with an improper motive, which violated their right to due process by depriving them of their right to purchase the property. In dismissing the complaint, Caputo said the Hammonds had failed to state how the allegedly false information had harmed them. The judge also noted that in order to state a claim under federal law, the Hammonds would have

CHEATERS, CATARACTS, OR CONTACTS HOUNDING YOU?

to show the alleged improper actions of the city officials were so egregious they would “shock the conscience.” “Here, the plaintiffs allege that the defendants exercised their discretion to remove a property from the tax sale list so that an insider might buy it. While this suggests an improper motive involving a clear conflict of interest, there is no requirement that the property must be sold at tax sale, and this conduct does not rise to a level that could be termed ‘conscience shocking,’ ” Caputo said.

New arraignment set for Munchak, Cordaro

Times Leader staff

SCRANTON – Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro are scheduled to be arraigned today on a superseding indictment filed against them Tuesday. A federal judge scheduled the arraignment for 11 a.m. before U.S. District Magistrate Judge Thomas Blewitt at the federal courthouse in Scranton. Munchak and Cordaro are facing a 41-count indictment that charges them with racketeering, money laundering, honest services fraud, bribery, extortion and other offenses. Federal prosecutors say the

men used their positions as county commissioners to extort money from companies that did business with the county. Munchak and Cordaro were originally indicted by a federal grand jury last year. The new indictment, filed Tuesday, makes a number of technical changes to the charges, which requires that they be arraigned again.

OTHER OPINION: FINANCE REFORM

Don’t delay cuts in debit card fees

W

HEN BIG BANKS and members of Congress who do their bidding rail against the evils of Wall Street reform, this is one of the things they rail about: How can lawmakers dare to say that banks no longer can charge 44 cents for an electronic transaction that costs them four cents? Such a provision was in last summer’s financial regulation overhaul. Now some senators – carrying water for the big banks – are working to delay it. An amendment last summer sponsored by U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., reduced the debit card fees – called swipe or interchange fees – that banks can charge merchants each time a consumer uses a debit card. Those transaction fees have become a huge cost of doing business for retail businesses, and the costs are being passed on to consumers. Banks, of course, cannot ar-

gue with a straight face that a bill that reduces their allowed transaction profit from 1,100 percent to 300 percent, as Durbin’s legislation does, would send them to the poor house. They’re arguing instead that allowing more competition in the swipe-fee industry somehow would damage smaller banks. Yes, big bankers are arguing against competition, suggesting that Wall Street reform somehow impedes the free market. Wrap your mind around that one. The argument is especially galling when you consider that small banks were exempted from the legislation. That big banks are pushing so hard right now to overturn the legislation before the new rules would take effect in July is further evidence that Wall Street has failed to learn from its mistakes.

ecently, yet another South Valley Parkway meeting was held and, again, another plan for road changes and funding was presented by the representatives of the various firms. The message was that 80 percent of the federal funding was in place and they were waiting for the state to fund the other 20 percent. For the residents of Hanover Township’s Askam section living on South Main Street (Middle Road), it means at least five more years of living with the traffic problems of which every state and township elected official is aware, as is the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. My question is this: What are these representatives going to do for us now? I would like all of you to sit down with some of the Askam residents and come up with some constructive answers to our traffic problems. This problem must be approached from a common-sense viewpoint and not one of passing the problem back and forth. PennDOT has to realize that its rules and regulations for normal roads do not apply to this “horse-and-buggy road,” and special consideration is very much needed. Let’s get together and get something done. Don Casterline Hanover Township

All government workers should tighten their belts

I

believe anyone holding a taxpayer-paid position (local, county, state or federal) should have to contribute the same amount as the next guy. Example: How is it fair to tell the Pennsylvania state corrections employees that they have to concede to huge increases in medical and pension contributions, and maybe even a salary freeze, yet the state’s elected leaders do not? Why doesn’t the governor himself have co-pays and contributions in the same amount as the corrections department, or any other tax-paid state job for that matter? Wake up, governor. Times are tough for everyone, but instead of whacking hardworking, taxpaying people, or whacking Medicaid, Social Security and other lowincome help lines, whack yourself first. You, Mr. Governor, and your political cronies should be the first to take that pay cut, benefit increase and such before pushing it off onto others! I am ashamed to say I voted for you.

Area’s elderly deserve proper care and respect

I

n Luzerne and Wyoming counties there supposedly is the largest population of elderly in the United States (other than in Dade County, Fla.); however, there is no active gerontologist here to care for the medical needs of seniors. The requirements of aging adults can include health issues such as diabetes, coronary diseases, obesity and several forms of dementia. The need is great, and our old ones are underserved. In certain cases, the instances of abuse within families are tragic. These neglected elderly parents, spouses and grandparents are unable to advocate for themselves. Our money is sent to underprivileged countries around the world, yet the old in America are not given the respect and kindness they deserve. This situation must and can be addressed by our government and our communities. It is to our shame that it is true. The medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry have to find a better way to treat diseases such as diabetes other than cutting off limbs. Old people deserve our love and respect, as they are given in other cultures. We are worshipful of youth in this country, even though they haven’t contributed to society as their parents and grandparents have. Even the young will someday be old, and they also will need care. Toby Coleman Dallas

Dallas Twp. resident against industrial activity

A

fter looking for a house in the Dallas area for a long time, I finally found the perfect one and was happy to be living here. I wanted to move to Dallas because I felt it was a nice, clean, safe environment in which to raise a family and it had a very good school district. In one fell swoop all of that seems about to change. Industrialization of Dallas Township is about to occur if we don’t stand up and try to stop it. There are three natural gas metering stations being proposed in the area surrounding the school district campus, and that is only the beginning. Included in these stations would be 14,000 gallons of a

DOONESBURY

highly flammable chemical called mercaptan. This type of industrial atmosphere has no place in our community so close to residential areas, and especially so close to our school campus. It could pose great risks to our health, safety and property values. I urge Dallas Township residents to contact the township supervisors and zoning members and to attend the zoning hearing on Monday to let them know this is not the kind of industrial activity we want in our community.

Greedy corporations bankrupting the planet

T

he government has been reconfigured from a government “by the people, for the people,” to a government by the corporation, for the corporation. One of the many negative results of this manipulation has been the destruction of the organism that sustains all life, the planet Earth. This destruction has been driven by consumerism and fueled by the acquisition of wealth. We are taught at an early age to desire a multitude of goods and services, and are supported in this effort by banks and credit card companies. Of course, corporations are much larger than individuals and consequently have larger desires and a greater need for money or profit. They are supported in their efforts by the governmental and legislative officials who invent favorable tax breaks and ineffective corporate regulations. Banking, credit card, financial, gas-andoil corporations are major players in the process of bilking the public of billions of dollars in order to achieve their goals: huge profits and administrative bonuses. The gas drilling operations under way in Pennsylvania are a good example of how this process works. Gas drilling corporations, through their lobbyists and lawyers, attempt to control officials of local, state and federal governments by means of campaign contributions or play-day junkets. Once a government official accepts money to satisfy his/her greed, the corporation receives political capital from that official. The large number of laws and regulations protecting the gas industry is a testament to what money can buy. The real victim in this corporate horror show is the planet. Earth is experiencing changes to its very structure: polluted air, radioactive water, topsoil erosion, subsurface geological change, ice cap melting, ozone depletion, extinction of ecosystems and changing weather patterns. If this decimation continues, its ability to sustain human life will be compromised. Bill Burns Shavertown

State College leads in recycling with compost program The borough’s food waste recycling effort was the first effort east of the Mississippi. By JESSICA VANDERKOLK Centre Daily Times

STATE COLLEGE — Every napkin placed on a table at The Autoport restaurant, every pineapple stem discarded and every batch of used coffee grounds now go into a collection bin that joins food waste from across the borough to create compost. The first program of its kind east of the Mississippi River, the borough began curbside pickup of food waste in January 2010 from some residential areas and, later, from businesses. A $280,000 grant from the

since the beginning of 2009, with no offers. Former county commissioners Todd Vonderheid and Greg Skrepenak had voted to purchase the building for $700,000 to house a southern county annex that never materialized. If the new arrangement goes as planned, the city would forgive $290,000 it is owed for the nearby county-owned Broad Street Exchange if the county gives the bank building to the city.

being sold, not only in the city, but throughout Lackawanna County as well,” Jarbola said. The injunction calls for the immediate end to the sale of products containing the compounds of methylene, mephedrone and methylenedioxyprovalerone, or MDPV, commonly found in bath salts.

was swerving in traffic and nearly struck a utility pole and other vehicles before being boxed in a driveway by a detective and another officer, according to charges filed. Police said in the criminal complaint that Pace and a passenger, Donna Zilla, 40, of Dunmore, were under the influence of bath salts. Two children in the vehicle were not injured, police said. Pace and Zilla “appeared

section of the city that has been plagued with several violent crimes, Yannuzzi said. It would also provide needed space for the police department, which is currently housed in cramped quarters at City Hall on Church Street, the mayor said. The county’s purchase of the bank building was controversial from the start because Vonderheid and Skrepenak had originally planned to lease the building for $2.58 million over 10 years. After a public outcry, they voted to pay $605,000 to purchase the property through eminent domain, but a court panel later ordered the county to pay $700,000.

The seller – Val-Mar Holdings – had paid $330,000 to buy the property in December 2005, about two years before the county acquired it. Val-Mar had done little, if any, work on the structure. The company was owned at least in part by former county planning commission member Frank DeGaetano. The purchase stemmed from the county’s decision to evacuate its nearby rented annex on Broad Street in September 2005 due to a suspicion of toxic mold that was later deemed unfounded The county will soon be seeking bids to demolish the bank building addition, Urban said. The demolition should be complete by the summer, he said.

cording to court documents. Disguising the products as household items also violates the state Unfair Practices and Consumer Protection Law. Lackawanna County President Judge Tom Munley and judges Michael Barrasse and Margaret Bisignani Moyle granted the preliminary injunction after hearing arguments in court Wednesday morning. Attorney Todd O’Malley, who has worked closely with the District Attorney’s Office

to craft the injunction and represented Jarbola in the order, lauded the court’s decision. “I don’t think there’s another county court in the United States of America that has banned bath salts,” O’Malley said. “It makes me very proud that this court saw the wisdom because it was very clear through the affidavits that we presented them that one of our young people in this community is going to die as a result of using

these very, very dangerous substances or cause the death of someone else.” Jarbola said he intended to deliver copies of the order to each of the county’s chiefs of police at a meeting Thursday, March 31. “I’m going to ask them to go out into their communities and put the vendors on notice throughout Lackawanna County that if they don’t take these products off the market, this is what could happen,” he said.

highly euphoric, aggressive and agitated. They were unable to control simple body movements, and when answering questions, both were flailing and talking quickly,” the complaint says. Pace was charged with driving under the influence of bath salts. A legal search of state court records failed to turn up any similar charges involving bath salts. Attorney John Hakim of Kingston said he believes police will have a difficult time prosecuting Pace on the DUI charge.

“It is going to be a tough sell for prosecutors,” Hakim said. “Police can certainly charge somebody, but the question is: Will the charge stick?” Hakim said there is a section of the DUI statute that allows police to charge a driver if the driver is under the influence of a drug that impairs the ability to safely operate a vehicle. Hakim said the DUI law raises another question about bath salts. “Are bath salts a drug? They’re currently not illegal,” he said. Hakim noted a driver can be charged with driving under the

influence of a prescription medication. “There is the difference; a prescription medication is a drug. Bath salts are not,” Hakim said. Chemical compounds mephedrone and MDPV are the main ingredients that make up bath salts, which mirror cocaine and methamphetamine. The compounds are not listed under the state’s controlled substance act, which means anyone, including juveniles, can legally take the substance without fear of being arrested. “What is going to need to happen is lawmakers will have

to rewrite the controlled substance statute to include whatever active ingredients are in bath salts, or to rewrite the illegal solvents statute to classify it as an illegal solvent. As it is classified right now, it is not an illegal substance.” The state House of Representatives is scheduled to vote April 4 to ban the sale and possession of bath salts before the legislation is moved to the state Senate. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, DScranton, issued a statement Tuesday urging the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to immediately ban chemicals

used to manufacture bath salts. Municipalities such as Wilkes-Barre and Nanticoke are contemplating ordinances that would ban the sale of bath salts. Pace was further charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving and failing to have children restrained in safety seats. Zilla, the mother of the children, was charged with child endangerment, reckless endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia. Preliminary hearings for the two women are scheduled on April 5 in Wilkes-Barre Central Court.

benefit the county and city. “The city would get a building that it needs, and the county would not have a building that it has to heat and maintain,” Urban said. The county could recoup the $290,000 when it is permitted to sell the Broad Street Exchange in 2015, Urban said. State Department of Community and Economic Development approval is required for the plan because state funding was involved in the $290,000 owed to the city, Yannuzzi said. The move would put the city police department in a more visible location, which may help residents feel safer in a

Commissioners would have to be willing to forego the difference between the $290,000 and the appraised value, Urban said. The county plans to appraise the building again after an addition to the original bank building is demolished, Urban said. He expects the appraisal to be lower than $625,000 because that amount was based on the increased square footage provided by the addition. Commissioners decided to use community development funding to demolish the addition because it is in poor condition and would create space for parking. Urban said the arrangement would

Of those, 474 residences participated at least once, and more than 20 percent placed collection carts at the curb three-quarters of the time. The average collection cart held just less than 14 pounds of food waste last year, though that increased to almost 17 pounds during the last quarter, when the borough added green waste to the food waste collection. The program will expand this year, and Holmes said he expects to add more downtown businesses within the month. He doesn’t plan to add more residences at this point.

Ex-player: Bonds trainer sold, helped inject HGH

Grab the parka, ski cap, mittens and galoshes. It’s time for baseball. From Dodger Stadium to Yankee Stadium, there was a flurry of activity as teams got ready for opening day. At Great American Ball Park, meanwhile, actual flurries. Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder and the Milwaukee Brewers worked out as snowflakes fell Wednesday, a day before they were to play Cincinnati. The conditions were better suited for snowballs than baseballs when they took the field. “I love it. I love the weather,” Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips deadpanned. “The weather is beautiful.” The forecast for the six openers Thursday wasn’t much better, either.

A bittersweet start for a few SWB Yankees

hey say they are OK with starting a season in the minors, that a little more seasoning can only help them, that they can still make the most of missed opportunity. But they will miss being in New York today. That’s where guys like Ramiro Pena, Greg Golson, Kevin Russo and especially Jesus Montero figured the 2011 season would begin for them – at new Yankee Stadium this afternoon against the Detroit Tigers in the major-league opener. Not in Triple-A wearing a Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre uniform against Lehigh Valley next week. “That’s fine,” Montero said. Is it really? More likely, that’s what these wouldbe New York Yankees have convinced themselves – that Scranton/WilkesBarre is a pretty good place to be. Except, it’s not the place they REALLY want to be. “It’s obviously a painful situation,” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre relief pitcher Andy Sisco said candidly. “It’s not something that makes me happy.” His pain was once more physical than mental. Sisco spent the entire 2005 season with Kansas City, and pitched in 151 big league games over with the Royals and Chicago White Sox from 2005-07. Then came Tommy John elbow surgery that shut him down for two years. He came back last year with Double-A Richmond, then signed with the Yankees as a minor-league free agent this winter believing he had a shot get back to the big leagues. Despite a solid spring training performance where Sisco compiled a 2.70 ERA through four appearances, the parent Yankees quickly shipped him to the minor leagues. He blames himself more than the organization, though. “I was a little disappointed I didn’t pitch better when I was with the big league camp,” Sisco said. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s lineup is filled with guys trying to recover and rebound. Golson, Pena and Russo all played well during stints with New York last season, achieving varying levels of success. But this spring they didn’t make the cut. Then there’s Montero, who worked his way out of New York’s plans for this year by hitting .222 in big league camp. His shot at the parent club’s starting catching job became shaky when the Yankees acquired former All-Star Russell Martin. But Montero, the organization’s top prospect, was still projected as a backup catcher with a parttime role in New York this season. Until the swing that got him 21 homers, 75 RBI and a .289 batting average with the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees last season disappeared, forcing New York to send him to Triple-A on Monday for some more seasoning. “Whatever they decide is fine with me,” Montero insisted. “I’m going to Triple-A to keep working hard.” Still, it has to be hard on the psyche of these guys who envisioned big plans for today. The first pitch of New York’s season comes at 1 p.m. today. That’s when the guys left behind at the minor league complex in Florida will feel a million miles away.

Yankees face unfamiliar territory in 2011

N.Y. could have uphill climb against Boston in AL East

By HOWIE RUMBERG AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Darth Vader’s theme music blared from the speakers at Yankee Stadium while the team worked out under sunny skies as if the Yankees needed a reminder that they are indeed still the “Evil Empire” and not the underdogs that they have been labeled. “As crazy as that sounds, nobody seems to believe in us but us,” opening-day starter CC Sabathia said Wednesday. Sabathia and New York will get an early chance to prove to the rest of baseball that even though they lost out on free agent Cliff Lee and have a suspect rotation, the 2011 version of the Yankees is up to the challenge of recaptur-

ing the AL East. Baseball is coming to the Bronx for the first time in March — weather permitting — when the Yankees open the season today against Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers, and New York is ready to prove its critics wrong. “I think with the winter that we’ve had, we’re all looking forward to this day,” manager Joe Girardi said. “I told the guys, our guys, be the best that we can be.” On ESPN.com, 45 baseball pundits offered predictions for

the season. All 45 picked the Boston Red Sox to win the AL East. Rain and temperatures more typical of the postseason may put a damper on the festivities that will be a little more subdued this year after the Yankees failed to repeat as World Series champions last October, losing to Texas in the AL championship series. “It’s going to be perfect weather, 40s and rain. A good day to pitch,” Tigers starting catcher Alex Avila said. With Verlander on the mound for Detroit on a chilly day, Derek Jeter might have to wait until Game 2 Saturday to move closer to his 3,000th hit. He starts the season 74 from becoming the first player in pinstripes to reach the milestone.

“We’re facing one of the best pitchers in baseball Day 1,” first baseman Mark Teixeira said. “We’ve got to be ready to go or it could be a long day for hitters.” Verlander spent his March preparing as if it were April, hoping to avoid the same type of start he had last year. The hard throwing right-hander was 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in opening month of the season. He finished the year 18-9 with a 3.37 ERA. “He figured out some things, some flaws that he had and some other ways to go about doing things that might help him,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “His concentration level improved on days that he doesn’t have to pitch.” The first batter Verlander faces

will not be Jeter, who slumped to a .270 average last year and eliminated his stride from his muchscrutinized swing. Girardi tapped left-hitting Brett Gardner to lead off against righties. “The job that he did against right-handed pitching last season, he was second in on-base percentage against right-handers ... his ability to disrupt defenses, the pressure that he puts on pitching staffs, his ability to score runs we thought it was a good fit,” said Girardi, who will use Jeter in the top spot against lefties. Jeter is hitting .314 from the second hole and .313 in the leadoff spot for his career. “It doesn’t make a difference,” Jeter said. “I’ve hit second more than I hit first, so who cares.”

Said Tigers catcher Alex Avila: “It’s going to be perfect weather, 40s and rain. A good day to pitch.” At Nationals Park, Washington players came out for practice in red-hooded sweatshirts. Their workout ended in the rain when the grounds crew pulled out the tarp, and no telling if it’ll be any better today against Atlanta. “We’ll show up ready to play. And if we don’t, we’ll play Friday. We have that off-day leeway, so that’s smart,” Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said. “We knew it was going to be a little chilly — coming from Florida, we won’t be used to it. But we’ll be so excited to play, I don’t think it’ll matter.” Sure is a change from last year. There wasn’t a single rainout or snowout for more than 21⁄2 weeks, the longest any season had gone from the start without a weather postponement in 25 years. Either way, quite a change from the sunny spring training fields in Arizona and Florida. “We came in from like 90 degrees. We flew back last night and there’s snow today. It’s kind of different,” said Edinson Volquez, the Reds’ opening day starter. Leave it to LA to provide the perfect setting. Two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum, Rookie of the Year Buster Posey and the World Series champion San Francisco Giants open at Dodger Stadium, with a forecast of sun nearing 80 degrees. Plus the Giants-Dodgers rivalry, right from the get-go. “It’s going to be a little fire,” Giants center fielder Andres Torres said. “That’s part of it.” So are familiar faces in new places. Angels outfielder Vernon Wells, Tigers slugger Victor Martinez, Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth and Braves second baseman Dan Uggla are among the stars set to make their debuts. Old pros Chipper Jones, back from a knee injury that almost finished his career, and Derek Jeter, coming off a down year, also get fresh starts. “There’s a twinkle in his eye, there’s something there,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said about Jones. “Maybe it’s getting a taste of the playoffs and a chance we can do it again this year.” Also part of the scene: Mike Mussina and Jim Edmonds, throwing out ceremonial first balls. Mussina will do it at Yankee Stadium, Edmonds gets the honor in St. Louis before the Cardinals host San Diego. At Kauffman Stadium, where the Royals host the Los Angeles Angels, and other ballparks there will be a collection for the relief efforts in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami. Stadium workers in Kansas City bundled up as they got logos, banners and signs ready for the opener. Despite the daunting forecasts, there’s always a lot of anticipation. “Even after all these years, there are still butterflies. Heck, yeah,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “No matter how long you do this. If you still have the same joy as you did as a kid, you remember the opening day Little League parade. I do. It’s the best game.”

PHILADELPHIA — Charlie Morton allowed one hit in five innings, Pedro Alvarez hit a two-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 Wednesday in the final exhibition game for both teams. Morton, the Pirates’ No. 4 starter, allowed just a single to Jimmy Rollins. The Phillies’ only other hit came against Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan. Alvarez connected off Cole Hamels for his second home run this spring. The Phillies’ lefty gave up four hits in three innings. Giants 2, Athletics 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Dallas Braden pitched 52⁄3 scoreless innings for Oakland before the San Francisco Giants rallied for two runs in the ninth and beat the Athletics 2-1 Wednesday. Twins 2, Braves 0 ATLANTA — Brandon Beachy pitched four scoreless innings for Atlanta and Scott Baker was just as strong for the Minnesota Twins in their win over the Braves.

Rays 5, Blue Jays 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Evan Longoria homered and B.J. Upton snapped a seventhinning tie with a two-run single to help the Tampa Bay Rays finish their exhibition schedule with a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Elliot Johnson also hit a solo homer for the Rays. Jose Bautista had a RBI single and Adam Lind drove in two runs with a third-inning double for the Blue Jays.

Bay may open season on DL with strained rib cage The Associated Press

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Mets left fielder Jason Bay had tests on his strained rib cage Wednesday in New York, and the team planned to wait until he returned to camp to decide whether he will start the season on the disabled list. Bay felt discomfort on his left side Tuesday and was pulled from the lineup. He went to New York on Wednesday morning for tests and was

scheduled to get back at night. The Mets open the regular season on Friday night at Florida. Bay The team told outfielder Lucas Duda he will make the 25-man roster if Bay needs to go on the disabled list. Rosters must be set by 11

a.m. Thursday. If Bay goes on the DL, the move could be backdated so that he’s eligible to play on April 9. “We will make a decision on whether he is disabled in the immediate future here,” general manager Sandy Alderson said. “I haven’t had a chance to talk directly to Jason myself, so subject to that we can’t make an announcement of any sort or reach a final decision.” It is still unclear whether the

latest problem is related to the back stiffness that shelved Bay on Saturday and Sunday. Nick Evans, who also would have been an option to replace Bay, cleared waivers and has accepted the team’s decision to outright him to Triple-A Buffalo. Infielder Luis Hernandez also cleared waivers but has 72 hours to decide if he will accept an assignment to Buffalo or become a free agent.

about Bonds. Instead, prosecutors had the players tell the jury how Anderson supplied them with performance-enhancing drugs along with detailed instructions on how to use the substances. Further, Velarde and former San Francisco Giant Marvin Benard testified that Anderson injected them with drugs. Velarde, who hit100 home runs and batted .276 over a 16-year career, spent less than15 minutes on the witness stand and testified that he never took two designer steroids that prosecutors allege Bonds knowingly used after getting them from Anderson. Velarde, who played for the Yankees, Angels, Athletics and Rangers, followed Benard to the witness stand Wednesday. Benard, a Bonds teammate with the Giants, testified that Anderson supplied him with the designer steroids dubbed the “clear” and “cream.” Prosecutors hope to use the players’ testimony to undercut Bonds’ position that Anderson misled him into using steroids by telling the seven-time MVP they were legal supplements. Bonds is charged with three counts of lying to a grand jury when he denied knowingly using performanceenhancing drugs. He also is charged with one count of lying to the grand jury when he said no one other than his doctor ever injected him.

other by Keven Veilleux before adding an even-strength goal of his own. With the win, the Penguins’ magic number to clinch the AHL’s best record is at three. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, mired in 21st place on the power play, took advantage of Norfolk penalty killers who had given up man-advantage goals in seven of their last nine games. The 3-for-6 performance with the extra man was critical, as Norfolk rallied to pull within a goal in the third period. “We wanted to make sure we had a good start tonight and we were able to capitalize on their special teams,” Craig said. “It wasn’t the prettiest way to hang onto the game, but we’ll take two points.” Already comfortably in the playoffs, the Penguins faced a team which was uncomfortably on the precipice of missing the postseason for a fourth straight year. But Wilkes-Barre/Scranton twice unleashed boardthundering checks in the opening minute to set the tone. And, perhaps, to send a message for the future. The clubs could meet in the first round of the playoffs after splitting their eight games this season. Norfolk got goals from Blair Jones, Troy Milam and Mattias Ritola, who assisted on the other two goals. “I know a lot of guys over there, and I knew we weren’t in the clear until the final buzzer,” Craig said. “I mean, they’re pushing for a playoff spot over there.” The Admirals have lost three of their last four games, making that quest even harder. Sterling’s first goal came only 2:22 into the opening period when he took a pass from Andrew Hutchinson and launched a shot from between the faceoff circles with Craig providing the screen. After Jones tied the game,

Playoff dates set The Penguins will open the 2011 East Division semifinals on April 15 and April 16 at Mohegan Sun Arena. Faceoff for both games is set for 7:05 pm. The Penguins clinched their third East Division regular-season title with an overtime victory over the Hershey Bears on Sunday, guaranteeing that the Penguins will host postseason action for at least the first two rounds of the playoffs. Individual tickets for the first two home playoff games will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Veilleux fired one home from the same spot as Sterling to make it 2-1. And it was 3-1 when Sterling scored again with 1:07 in the period. Just 45 seconds later, Craig took advantage of defenseman Mark Barberio, who turned it over on the forecheck. Barberio left the puck flat on the ice, practically teeing it up for Craig, who took two strides and launched it over Tokarski’s left shoulder to make it 4-1. “The puck was standing there, and I just had to make a move,” Craig said. “It made (Tokarski) freeze a bit, and it was lucky enough to get a goal.” The game-winner, as it turned out. The beneficiary was Penguins goalie John Curry, who hadn’t received much scoring support in the past three games. “He’s played really well for us and we haven’t finished well for him,” Penguins coach John Hynes said. The decision to play Curry for the fourth game in a row, even after getting Brad Thiessen back from Pittsburgh, wasn’t difficult for the coach. “We just got him back, and we want to get him re-acclimated with everyone,” Hynes said. “John played well, and we’re looking forward to getting Brad back this weekend and do what he does for us.”

18 minutes to play to secure Redeemer’s 2-0 victory over Crestwood. “Absolutely. It couldn’t have come at a better time,” Redeemer coach Bob Hughes said. “It wasn’t the prettiest win, but we’ll take it. It was our first game, and we’ve only been out on a full field maybe three days with the weather. It’s probably the same for most schools.” Speaking of weather, there was a variety Wednesday night – an intermittent mix of rain, freezing rain and snow. But when conditions eventually warm up, Redeemer might view the seasonopening victory as a key to the season. The Royals (1-0) and Crestwood (0-1) are both in the Wyoming Valley Conference’s toughest grouping where Berwick, Coughlin and Dallas are preseason fa-

charged as Curtis Drake and Derrick Thomas, both 20; and Tre Bowman and Taran Buie, both 19. Drake and Thomas play football, while Bowman plays basketball. Buie has been suspended from the basketball team since late December for an unrelated and unspecified violation of team rules. Also charged were Penn State student Christopher Felter, 21, of State College; and two nonstudents from Susquehanna, Bryan Price, 23, and Craig Price, 21. vorites to grab three of four District 2 berths in Division 1-A. That would leave those two fighting for the last spot. “We still have some stuff to work on,” Hughes said, “but the girls did a good job.” Redeemer scored 19 minutes into the game when Kiera Stachowiak was able to poke in a deflection of a corner kick past Crestwood keeper Megan White. The Royals then withstood strong pressure by Crestwood that started late in the first half on a shot by Hannah Coffin. The Comets continued the assault in the opening minutes of the second half, with Coffin and Sarah Andrews taking a crack at Redeemer keeper Sarabeth Kolodziej. Erin Gruber also came up big for the Royals by clearing a header from the goal. Shortly after Gruber’s play and a stoppage for injury, Rexer found the net for a 2-0 advantage. Shaina Dougherty recorded her second assist of the game on the score.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – Tim Zaccone scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning as King’s outlasted Wilkes, 4-3 on Wednesday in a Freedom Conference match at Lipo Field. In the final frame, Zaccone and Ryan Skea drew back-toback walks to lead off the inning then advanced on a passed ball. Anthony Rey then tapped a slow ground ball to third base and Zaccone took off from third in an attempt to score. But the Colonels misplayed the ball, allowing Zaccone to score the winning run. Mike Fignar was the only King’s batter with multiple hits, going 3-for-4. Matt Ruch paced Wilkes by going 3-for-4 while Tay Sidler and Eric Bidwell had two hits each. Joey Troxell picked up the win for the Monarchs in relief, allowing just one hit with six strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. Angelo Trento took the loss for Wilkes in relief, allowing one unearned run on two walks and two strikeouts. Moravian 5, Misericordia 3

Moravian rallied for the nonleague win despite Ryan Cacchioli and Andrew Tressa both notching two hits to pace the Cougars offense. Pete Doggett allowed just one hit and one run over five innings on the mound for Misericordia.

with me,” said Montero, who joined Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s minor league camp Wednesday. “I’m going to Triple-A to keep working hard.” That’s also the approach of SWB Yankees reliever Andy Sisco. The towering 6-foot-10 righthander pitched in 151 games for the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox from 2005 through 2007 but was shut down for two seasons to rehab from Tommy John surgery. He returned with Double-A Richmond last year, and will continue his bid for a majorleague comeback with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start 2011. “I need to be proactive in making the moves I need to get back there,” Sisco said. He certainly was aggressive on Wednesday against Indianapolis, the top minor-league affiliate of the Pirates. In an exhibition game loaded with baserunners and fielding blunders, Sisco worked a perfect sixth inning during his only time on the mound while re“It’s early in the second, and I know the team I have is a way better team than this,” Crestwood coach Pasquale Calabrese said. “There’s a little bit of frustration because the weather didn’t give us a chance to go outside.

King’s, Manhattanville split

The Monarchs opened defense of its 2010 Freedom Conference championship with a doubleheader split against Manhattanville winning the first game 5-2 and dropping the second 2-0. Annie Erndle was the winning pitcher in Game 1, allowing two runs, one earned, on eight hits with four strikeouts in seven innings. Amanda Cardone led King’s with a 3-for-3 effort while Erndl and Tholen added two hits each. In Game 2, Jen Harnischfeger and Brittany Hildebrand had the only hits of the game for King’s.

It wasn’t overly difficult for either team to score runs during the middle of the final week of minor league spring training. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got two-run home runs from infielders Jose Toussen and Brandon Laird – who led New York’s minor leaguers with 25 dingers in 2010. Montero provided the team’s final two runs by doubling home one and scoring the last – on Daniel Brewer’s booming double off the center field wall in the fifth inning. SWB Yankees starter Adam Warren was victimized by four Scranton/Wilkes-Barre errors and four-run innings in both the second and fourth. He also surrendered a three-run homer in the fifth.

Butler’s new role: Underdogs no more By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Matt Howard looked around Hinkle Fieldhouse in disbelief Wednesday afternoon. Hundreds of fans lined the front hallway of Butler’s arena, with dozens more outside. One even brought her pet bulldog. To the senior forward, it was a strange to see all these people in the daylight. Butler usually holds its impromptu pep rallies in the early morning hours. “It means a lot,” Howard said minutes before boarding the team bus and heading to the Indianapolis airport. “I’ve never been part of a send-off quite like this. It’s a little bit different.” Certainly different from last year’s NCAA tourney run. Back then, the Bulldogs hopped on a bus and drove six miles to the

team hotel. Fans didn’t even bother showing up, figuring they’d see the players all weekend anyway. By the time the Bulldogs (27-9) step off the plane in Houston late Wednesday, they’ll know how much has changed. They’ve already turned over the title of NCAA tournament darling to Virginia Commonwealth, their foe in Saturday’s NCAA semifinal. And instead of being the underdog, Butler is favored to beat the Rams and reach another title game. Wilson Ethington, a sophomore biology major at Butler wants to

MONTY SAYS

The Cardinal are making a fourth straight Final Four appearance. By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer

STANFORD, Calif. — From the moment last season ended in disappointment, Kayla Pedersen and Jeanette Pohlen made it clear their senior seasons at Stanford would be incomplete without an NCAA championship. They reiterated it Wednesday: Another near miss at a national title won’t

do for this star tandem in their final shot at winning it all. The top-seeded Cardinal (33-2) head off to their fourth straight Final Four today, riding a 27-game winning streak and gearing up for an unexpected semifinal matchup Sunday in Indianapolis with No. 2 seed Texas A&M after its upset of Baylor. “It’s incredible to make it to four straight Final Fours, but at the same time we’re not satisfied with that,” Pedersen said. “I think that determination, that focus that we’re going to bring this year and that experience that we’ve lost a bunch of times in the Final Four, is really going to motivate us for one more game.” Stanford hasn’t brought home the title trophy since 1992 despite reaching the NCAA final twice in the program’s past three trips to the Final Four. The Cardinal lost the title to Tennessee in 2008 and to Connecticut last year. Everybody involved insists it’s time to finally get over the hump, which likely will mean getting through twotime defending champion UConn for a second time this season. “Is this team better prepared? Do I have a sense of it? No,” coach Tara VanDerveer said of the Cardinal’s chances. Pohlen, the Pac-10 Player of the Year, and Pedersen already have done so much to leave their legacy, like that school-record 63-game home winning streak at Maples Pavilion. They never lost on their home floor for their careers — a mark no other Stanford senior class has accomplished. It was Pohlen’s coast-to-coast drive for the winning layup against Xavier during last season’s special run that sent Stanford back to the Final Four. Now, it’s their final try on the biggest stage. “For Kayla and I and the other seniors, we’re very focused coming into this Final Four,” Pohlen said. “It’s tough making it that far and not coming away with the national championship. I think it’s motivating us even more and making us even more excited because we do know this is our last chance at it. We’ve gone this far. We’re just going to give it all we have.” Stanford ended the Huskies’ record 90-game winning streak with a thrilling 71-59 victory at Maples Pavilion back on Dec. 30, holding UConn star Maya Moore to 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting. That after UConn rallied from a 20-12 halftime deficit against Stanford to win the national title last April — a result that still stings around Stanford.

INDIANAPOLIS — Purdue’s sales pitch to Matt Painter was good enough. After talking with Missouri about its coaching vacancy, Painter decided to stay at his alma mater Wednesday and has agreed to an eight-year contract through the 2018-19 season. “I am extremely excited about continuing my career at Purdue,” Painter said in a statement. “I believe we have built something very special. At the same time, I feel we have much more ahead of us to accomplish. At the end of the day, my heart is at Purdue, and this is a place where I want to win a national championship.” Purdue officials spoke with Painter by telephone on Monday, then he met with Missouri officials on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old Painter has been selected the Big Ten’s coach of the year three times and led the Boilermakers to Sweet 16 appearances in 2009 and 2010. Purdue (26-8) made it to the third round of this year’s NCAA tournament but was knocked out by Final Four participant VCU. Last year, Purdue rewarded Painter with a contract through the 2016-17 season. It included a $1.3 million base salary and up to $1 million in incentives. “We are thrilled to announce that Matt will continue his leadership of our men’s basketball program,” athletics director Morgan Burke said. “He has been at the helm of the winningest four-year period in the storied history of Boilermaker basketball, and we pledge to work with him to win championships.”

Fiesta Bowl’s status up in air

Big-hitter Vegas back at home

A corruption scandal could cost the event its spot in the Bowl Championship Series. By BOB BAUM The Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Fiesta Bowl ejected its chief executive amid corruption allegations and now faces a new challenge: convincing the BCS to let it stay in the lucrative bowl system used to crown a national champion. If Fiesta Bowl officials can’t, BCS executive director Bill Hancock says the organization has no problem booting them. “We want to send a clear and very strong signal to the public about the standards and values (that) the conferences that make up the BCS stand for,” Hancock told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The Fiesta Bowl released an

internal report that uncovered “excessive compensation, nonbusiness and inappropriate expenditures and inappropriate gifts” and fired longtime CEO and President John Junker. The BCS has set up a task force to help determine if the leaders of major college football want to continue doing business with the Fiesta Bowl. It is in the second year of a four-year deal to be part of the BCS. The reimbursements, listed as at least $46,539, are an apparent violation of state campaign finance laws and the charter that allows the Fiesta Bowl its nonprofit status. Arizona state prosecutors are also conducting a probe. The Fiesta board unanimously fired Junker “for his improper and inappropriate activities documented” in the report. “The entire Fiesta Bowl family is angered and disappointed by what we’ve seen in the re-

port and by the actions of Mr. Junker,” board chairman Duane Woods told reporters at the event’s headquarters in downtown Scottsdale. “The Fiesta Bowl is greater than a few individuals, and the lesson here really is that we placed too much trust in a single individual,” he added. Woods did not take questions. The investigators said they found the “apparent scheme” to reimburse at least $46,539 for employees’ political contributions. Report: Ex-Auburn players say they were paid MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Auburn will investigate claims by four former football players, who have told HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” they received thousands of dollars while being recruited by or playing for the Tigers. Stanley McClover, Troy Red-

dick, Chaz Ramsey and Raven Gray told HBO for an episode airing Wednesday night that they received cash payments — in book bags, envelopes and even handshakes. Ramsey played at Auburn most recently, in the 2007 season. “While HBO confirmed to us they have no proof that any of these claims are true, we contacted both the NCAA and Southeastern Conference as soon as these allegations surfaced,” Athletic Director Jay Jacobs said in a statement released Wednesday night. “We have engaged outside counsel to investigate this matter and will spare no resources to find the truth.” University President Jay Gogue said he is confident Jacobs and his department “will investigate these allegations thoroughly and completely.” Tommy Tuberville, Auburn’s

HUMBLE, Texas — Jhonattan Vegas could barely speak English when he made his first appearance in a PGA Tour event, as an amateur at the 2003 Houston Open. He was 18 then, and qualified less than a year after moving from his native Venezuela to Houston to fine-tune his game with Franci Betancourt, an instructor who had taught him as a boy. Vegas missed the cut, but felt secure enough to make the city his adopted hometown.

TV Coverage The bigToday 3 p.m., GOLF hitting Vegas Friday is one of 33 3 p.m., GOLF players in the Saturday field who 3 p.m., NBC have already Sunday qualified for 3 p.m., NBC next week’s Masters. But a win in Houston would have additional meaning to Vegas, a former University of Texas star who now lives only 20 minutes from the course. “That first tour experience was this one here and since that time, it’s great to be back,” Vegas said. “I think just the whole state of Texas, I’ve been in a pretty ’home’ feeling. When I’m here, I feel really comfortable. I like everyone around.” Vegas earned his invitation to Augusta when he won the Hope Classic in January in just his fifth career start on the tour. “I knew that I could win here — I didn’t know it was going to be that quick,” he said. “You never know when things are going to happen. That’s kind of what I do and just try as hard as I can every single time and hope for the best.” Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and Fred Couples are also in the field, using the tournament to tune up for the season’s first major. Anthony Kim is the defending champion. Organizers have embraced the Houston Open’s distinction as the run-up to the Masters, setting up the Tournament Course with conditions similar to those at Augusta. The fairways are wide and mowed toward the tees, the rough is light, the greenside mounds are shaved and the greens themselves are lightningfast. Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen is playing the course for the first time after hearing positive feedback about it.

McClover said he “felt totally obligated” to play for the Tigers after getting money — he wasn’t sure how much — in a book bag. “I almost passed out. I literally almost passed out, I couldn’t believe it was true,” the former defensive end told HBO. “I felt like I owed them.”

Tim Connolly scored 5:28 into the second period to help the Sabres (39-29-9) earn their 87th point and move into tie with the Rangers (41-31-5) for seventh in the Eastern Conference with 10 days left in the season. Buffalo also was able to maintain at least a three-point edge over ninth-place Carolina, which was hosting Montreal. The Rangers lost in regulation for the first time in eight games (6-1-1) and dropped to 8-2-1 in their past 11.

Heat 123, Wizards 107 WASHINGTON — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat had a surprisingly tough time against the lowly Wizards — even after No. 1 draft pick John Wall was ejected for a second-quarter scuffle.

CMYK A preview of the ISM report

Unemployment report

The Chicago Purchasing Managers report will give investors a first look at how manufacturing in the Midwest did during March. Investors see the report as a preview of the national assessment of manufacturing from the Institute for Supply Management. That comes out Friday. Economists expect the Chicago group’s index of manufacturing activity to dip to 70 from 71.2 in February. That would mean manufacturing is growing, but at a slightly slower pace.

The Labor Department’s report on how many people applied for unemployment benefits last week is expected to show a small drop from the previous week. That indicates that the rate of layoffs continues to slow. Investors always anxiously await the report, but this week’s is of particular interest because it comes a day before the department releases its report on employment for March.

BERLIN—Germany’sleadingindustrial companies pledged Wednesday to recruit andpromotemorewomen,especiallyintop management jobs, but remained at odds with the government over how best to do it. The 30 companies listed on Frankfurt’s DAX index of blue chip stocks pledged after a meeting with ministers to set companyspecific goals to promote more female managers. “Our goal is to reach a sustainable, com-

pany-specific personnel development, as well as adequate representation of women in leadership positions, particularly in toplevel management,” the companies said. Chancellor Angela Merkel’s minister for families, Kristina Schroeder, released the outline of a government program aimed at pressuring the private sector to better promote qualified women, especially to increase female representation on their management boards by 30 percent by 2013. In 2001, German companies agreed to voluntarily promote more women, with ve-

Firms to boost hiring

A majority of America’s largest companies are ready to step up hiring this year and more than 90 percent expect sales to improve, a new survey found. The Business Roundtable said Wednesday that 52 percent of its members plan to increase hiring in the next six months. That’s the largest proportion for the group since it began surveying its members nine years ago. The trade group represents CEOs from roughly 200 of the nation’s largest companies. More than 60 percent also plan to spend more on long-lasting manufactured goods, such as computers and machinery, according to the survey of 142 executives taken in early March. The group’s members are more optimistic than at any point since the survey began in 2002. Its CEO economic outlook index rose to 113, up from 101 in the previous quarterly survey. The index plummeted to -5, its lowest level, in the January-March quarter of 2009.

ry little to show for it a decade later. The companies are arguing that it is important to recruit younger women into lower level jobs and groom them to move up, while the government insists that more women in upper management positions will have a trickle-down effect. Given the technology-heavy emphasis of many of the DAX companies, including BMW, BASF, Daimler Siemens and Volkswagen, they say they face a legitimate challenge of finding enough women qualified to work for them at any level.

Japan flights suspended

American Airlines is suspending two of its six daily flights to Japan next week due to a slump in traffic since the big earthquake and tsunami. American said Wednesday it will suspend the flights on April 6 and resume them on April 25. One goes from New York to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, the other flies between Dallas and Tokyo’s Narita airport. The move by AMR Corp.’s American Airlines follows Delta Air Lines Inc.’s decision last week to suspend service to Haneda, although Delta continues flying to Narita.

hen Jane Evans’ job was outsourced last year, she didn’t dwell on her own tragedy; she saw an opportunity. Evans is the owner of a new local franchise of national bookkeeping firm BookKeeping Express, which opens its doors today in Mountain Top. Evans decided to open the business after being laid off from her previous employer in September. The management firm she worked for decided to outsource its backoffice functions to a third-party company like BookKeeping Express. Evans said she thought that smaller businesses could also benefit from bookkeeping services. “If the larger companies are doing it, then it makes even greater sense that the smaller businesses should look at it as a way to cut their expenses,” Evans, 50, of Mountain Top, said. BookKeeping Express handles accounting responsibilities including charting ac-

Factory order growth

The Commerce Department is expected to report that orders to the nation’s factories slowed during February. That’s not surprising after orders for durable goods fell just under 1 percent for the month. Durable goods are those expected to last for three years or more. The factory orders report is broader, and includes goods such as food, paper and chemicals that are consumed faster than durable goods.

Wilkes University, said she has the right idea. “A business like that coming into this area, as long as they are priced affordably, will be instrumental for a lot of small businesses,” Pierce said. He added that the service can fill what is “definitely a void for a lot of small businesses; I think one of the number one problems that they have is finding an affordable bookkeeping service.” Bookkeeping services eliminate the need for businesses to employ an in-house bookkeeper, Pierce said, which can be a large strain on very small businesses. Evans added that being part of a larger national organization provides extra resources for her company, and extra security for clients. BookKeeping Express offers data security and backup systems, data entry services and legal advice, Evans said. “With BookKeeping Express, you’ve got this huge support system behind you that can give your clients that additional sense of security,” she said.

Economist: News both good, bad

By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

PLAINS TWP. — Sharing his wisdom and knowledge of global economics, Jay Bryson, managing director and global economist with Wells Fargo,offeredanoutlooktomembers oftheGreaterWilkes-BarreChamber of Commerce on Wednesday afternoon. At the group’s luncheon in The Woodlands Inn & Resort, Bryson analyzed the global economic outlook and gave the full banquet room somegoodnewsandsomebadnews about the country’s financial future. Startingonapositivenote,hesaid the U.S. economy isinanexpansion, with consumer spending and the business sector picking up. “Consumers are spending the Bryson old-fashion way,” he said. “They are spending what they earn.” What this means, Bryson explained,isthattheeconomyisshowing a slow growth at around 2 percent. To give an idea of consumer spending between 2003 and 2007 the growth rate was about 3 ½ percent, he said. “One thing that helped us in 2003 to 2007 was many consumers were using their homes as an ATM and that is no longer happening right now, which will cause growth to be a bit slower,” said Bryson, based in Charlotte, N.C. Asaresult,fromtheendoftherecession until now, there have been 1.4 million jobs created in the private sector, he said. “If we create jobs at the same paceaswedidinthelastexpansion, 2003 through 2007, on average we created about 150,000 jobs per month,itwilltakeaboutfourtofive yearstogettheunemploymentrate back down to zero,” Bryson said. “The thing is, these jobs require training and education.” In Pennsylvania, he said, the unemployment rate reached a high of 10percent.That’s“alittlehigherthan the national average, but comparing the state economy to the nation, we are doing slightly better,” he said. As jobs are created, and people get back to work, the $1.3 trillion U.S. deficit will be whittled away. Bryson said the deficit was due to unpaid taxes caused by people losing their jobs over two fiscal years, causing the downward spiral. Localandstatespendinghasbeen negative, he said. Tough permanent cuts will be made, he added. “We are all in this together,” he said.

Virtual worlds bring about ‘e’conomy, but where is it all headed? YOU’LL NEVER get anywhere in life if you sit at home and play games. So the wisdom goes. Unless, of course, you’re really good at it — and you happen to be playing in the brave new online world. The younger generation can tell you all about World of Warcraft, EVE Online, and the like — the so called Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games — or MMORPG for short. People play these games obsessively — spending hours or even an entire day immersed in a virtual world where they fight demons, pilot spaceships, embark on quests, and perform other arcane tasks, all in pursuit of a bevy of

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO achievements, badges, and rewards. These games also feature another aspect: a virtual economy. Players can buy, sell, trade, work, and even build new objects and mine for various metals — and these activities can sometimes have tangible real-world benefits. For example, in EVE Online, a game that’s set in space, a player can be rewarded “ISK” (the in-game equiv-

alent of money) for their efforts. They can actually use this ISK to pay for their monthly subscription — and what’s more, sufficiently advanced players can actually automate these processes so they pay nothing at all. Furthermore, it’s possible to transfer ISK to other players — so I can give you $100 real-world dollars for 1 million ISK. As an extreme example, we can look at Entropia, an online virtual universe that’s been around since 2003. Entropia has found its way into the Guinness Book of World Records — several times. A player bought a location in the game for $100,000 — realworld dollars — and then recouped that investment by selling virtual property and charging players for use of that location.

A high-school student and his mother earned nearly $40,000 during the course of one year — in the same game — by building and selling weapons ... all while playing for just three hours a day. Keep in mind — this is real money exchanged for essentially intangible goods. I get a headache trying to think about the economics of this — and economists can chime in here: What happens when this becomes widespread, and money is exchanged for what is effectively non-existent work? Scanning the QR Code in this story will take you to the Entropia portal. Nick DeLorenzo is director of Interactive and New Media for The Times Leader. Write him at ndelorenzo@timesleader.com.

Still betting on the bull Nick Thakore has earned the title of turnaround king. In November 2008, Thakore took over Putnam Voyager, a mutual fund that focused on large-cap growth companies. Voyager trailed most of its peers from 2003-07 as they recovered from the dot-com bust and 2001 recession. But last month, Lipper honored Voyager for having the top record among nearly 740 large-cap growth funds for the three years that ended Dec. 31. Lipper cited the fund’s returns and the level of risk Thakore took to achieve them. Other funds had higher returns but took on more risk. For the three years that ended Tuesday, Voyager had an average yearly return of 14 percent, 10 percentage points more than the average large-growth fund. It has $5 billion in assets. The Associated Press asked Thakore for his take on the market. He says he’s confident investors can still expect more gains two years into this bull market.

The biggest threats to further market gains? “First, oil prices. We’ve got a developing economic recovery, and the biggest thing that could trip it up is a sustained spike in oil prices.” But prices would have to go much higher and stay high for a long time to significantly hurt stocks. “I also worry about government debt in the U.S. and in Europe. The European situation is touch-andgo, but I think they’ll probably come out of it. As for the U.S., I don’t think that the deficit is likely to become a big problem while interest rates stay low. You have to worry more when rates really rise fast. I don’t think we’re getting to that point yet.”

A broad zone of low pressure will keep today's weather cold and unsightly with light rain and snow. Another storm approaching tonight will increase the intensity of the rain and snow, and by mid morning on Friday an additional 2 to 5 inches of snow is possible, especially in elevations above 1,200 feet. In lower elevations, snowfall will be less with a mix of rain. A cold, northwest wind will persist over the weekend, keeping temperatures well below normal with flurries and only partial clearing. Another storm will approach Monday with more sleet and rain, and the stormy weather could return by Wednesday with more rain and snow.

f rainy days and Mondays always get you down, it’s a good thing today’s Thursday, isn’t it? (And maybe it’s not even raining at all, in which case all the better.) The month of March has been a wet one, to be sure, but at least we didn’t experience any major flooding. And at least we’re finally (presumably) out of the snowy woods. April begins tomorrow, though, and you know what they say about April, right? Well, at least the expected showers are most helpful in bringing us May flowers. In the meantime, if any day when water pours from the sky tends to make you glum,

why not start your own parade (as an old song suggests) and tell the heavens to bring it on. Or, as they say in Seattle, smile, just smile at the rain. Come on, it can’t be that bad.

Girl’s change in attitude about engagement dismays dad’s fiancee Dear Abby: I am in my late 30s and have been dating “Rick” for six years. The problem is his daughter, “Janet.” We used to get along, but now she hates me. She calls me awful names and says she wishes I would go away. I recently asked Rick to marry me. Now Janet says I am “desperate” and she refuses to talk to either of us. I don’t know what to say to her. I’m appalled at her attitude toward me, the language she uses and the things she’s saying about me to her friends on the Internet. She won’t listen to her dad. Her mother is encouraging her behavior and has been threatening me.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE I can’t get Janet to understand that her dad and I love each other, that it’s all right for a woman to ask a man to marry her and it’s not out of “desperation.” Please help. — Not Desperate in Louisiana Dear Not Desperate: Toughen up. Recognize that for all of the joy Rick brings you, Janet is his extremely immature daughter and she’s part of the package. How old is the girl? She appears to have years of growing up to do. You can’t change her behavior, so go on with your life without seeking her approval. Unfortunately, nasty

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

ex-wives are nothing new. If the ex does anything beyond “threaten” you, file a police report and let them deal with her. Dear Abby: Can common sense be learned or taught? Some people seem to be born with it. Others have “book smarts” but struggle with everyday common sense. I fail to grasp simple connections, and I sometimes ask questions that have obvious answers — for someone else. I know other people who share the same problem, and I admire those who simply seem to “get” what’s happening around them. Is there any way to improve? I’m 38 and married to a man who has strengths in both areas. — Bookworm in Montana

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Bookworm: Nobody has everything. Your strength is your intellect. Not everyone is a good student, and it can affect their selfesteem as much or more than your worry about not having common sense. If it’s any comfort, people usually acquire common sense in the school of life. In other words, they learn from the mistakes they make. I’m sure you have done that and will continue to do so. Dear Abby: My 34-year-old daughter blames me for her poor penmanship. When she was a baby, she started grabbing things with her left hand. Her pediatrician advised me to force her to use her right hand. Could she have had better penmanship if she had not been forced to use her

right hand? — Guilty Mom in Madison, Ala. Dear Guilty Mom: Probably. Your pediatrician must have been very old or very “old school.” I am also lefthanded, and when I was a child, educators had stopped forcing children to write in a way that was unnatural for them. I was taught to properly hold a pencil, we practiced printing and cursive penmanship, and I am told my handwriting is beautiful. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The omens suggest that it may be just as easy to make a big change as it is to make a small one. So, as long as you are envisioning a change, it may as well be dramatic. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Once you accept the way things are, you have power over the situation. So consider dropping your resistance. Why struggle? Come to terms with the way things are, and you’ll be instantly influential. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your creativity and intelligence will stretch into new realms. You’ll apply what you learned in one area of life to a completely different subject and have success. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sometimes the prize goes to the one who deserves it most. Other times the prize goes to the one who thinks to ask for it. Ask for what you want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A relationship is improving. It may feel like you are coasting along together. Enjoy this mellow, harmonious state. You have an especially easy time getting to know Gemini and Libra people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have an excellent eye for what is going right in the world. Share your upbeat observations with anyone who will listen. Your optimism will have far-reaching repercussions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you don’t have a mentor yet, this will be a fine day to find one. Others are receptive to your charm and will find it easy to spot your talent and take note of the rich potential in you.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

HOW TO CONTACT: Dear Abby: PO Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Consider changing the rules of a game or agreeing to different terms in a relationship. It’s also an auspicious time to make new arrangements with a boss, colleague, client or customer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will benefit from self-parenting. For instance, you may make a deal with yourself that you can “play” after you’ve finished your “homework.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Let your inner confidence show in your style of speaking. If you are too self-effacing, your credibility may be called into question. Talk with certainty, and others will be certain of you, as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will effectively integrate two parts of your life that don’t always fit nicely together — for instance, your work with your family life, or your leisure with your work. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Research an influential person you would like to know. The future holds an encounter. If you say the right thing, this person will not only show you the ropes, but will also pull a few strings. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 31). You’ll be highly motivated, and once you get in motion, you will be determined to succeed one way or another. Through the next three months, your social life will bustle along at a busy, happy clip. In July, you’ll alternate between tranquility and adventure. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 42, 14, 3, 10 and 17.
