California University of Pennsylvania’s acting president, Geraldine M. Jones, steps to the microphone during the recent convocation at the campus to thank faculty and staff for creating a scholarship in her honor.

Breaking barriers Jones, first Cal U African-American, woman president, inspires scholarship BY DIANA LASKO

Geraldine Jones breaks down barriers because she doesn’t see obstacles. She sees opportunities. “My father brought me up to believe I could do anything I wanted to,” said Jones, a lifelong resident of Brownsville. Her father accomplished his goal. Jones, 62, is the first African-American and the first woman to serve as acting president of California University of Pennsylvania and was recently surprised by a scholarship established in her honor. Dr. Harrison Pinkney, associate professor in the Parks and Recreation Management program at Cal U said the

university’s 2013 Black History Month planners wanted to celebrate accomplishments of African-Americans in the community. “Rather than looking to national figures, we challenged our student leaders to celebrate their own heroes,” said Pinkney. “One name came up repeatedly. So during our planning meetings, we began to discuss ways to celebrate President Jones.” The group decided a $500 scholarship would be a fitting tribute to a minority woman who is dedicated to teaching and higher education. The scholarship will be awarded

Final movie scene filmed at former Brownsville Hospital BY NATALIE BRUZDA

The now-defunct emergency room of the former Brownsville General Hospital was buzzing with sights and sounds on Friday as the final scene of a psychological thriller was filmed. “Most hospitals are functioning,” said John Iwanonkiw, assistant director. “When we shoot, we try to stay out of people’s way, and we were fortunate enough that some other productions had shot here, and we had

Rosemary McClintock said she doesn’t spend a lot time looking back to the past. Nearly 33 years ago, McClintock’s husband then, Donald Roy Wilt, 26, was killed in what police said was a road rage incident along Route 40 in Henry Clay Township in 1980. The killer has never been brought to justice. “It was really sad when MOVIE, Page A3 it happened,” McClintock

learned about it, and asked if we could come. And they were kind enough to allow us to shoot here.” A sinister preacher, an angry church mob and a vow of vengeance sets the scene for the movie, entitled “All Saints Eve.” Directed by Gerry Lively, and produced by Bruce Koehler of North Shore Pictures in Pittsburgh, the movie follows a group of misfit friends who must fight to stay alive on a night when an evil curse is accidentally unleashed.

said. “It was such a shock. I always wish there would be an ending to it and you know who did it and could move on and put it in the past, just go on with it.” But the past has a way of shaping the present and the future. Though McClintock and her family have moved on, some, since that tragic day — Aug. 30, 1980 — their story does not have an ending. “I’m hoping it (newspaper stories) might bring this out

In 1863, the International Red Cross was founded in Geneva. In 1865, Columbia, S.C., burned as the Confederates evacuated and Union forces moved in. (It’s not clear which side set the blaze.) In 1897, the forerunner of the National PTA, the National Congress of Mothers, convened its first meeting in Washington. In 1904, the original two-act version of Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Madama Butterfly” was poorly received at its premiere at La Scala in Milan, Italy. In 1933, Newsweek was first published by Thomas J.C. Martyn under the title “News-Week.” (The magazine abandoned its print format at the end of last year in favor of an exclusively online edition.) In 1959, the United States launched Vanguard 2, a satellite which carried meteorological equipment. In 1964, the Supreme Court, in Wesberry v. Sanders, ruled that congressional districts within each state had to be roughly equal in population. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon departed the White House with his wife, Pat, on a historic trip to China. In 1983, the Scottish comedydrama “Local Hero” was first released. In 1988, Lt. Col. William Higgins, a Marine Corps officer serving with a United Nations truce monitoring group, was kidnapped in southern Lebanon by Iranian-backed terrorists (he was later slain by his captors). In 1993, a ferry carrying some 1,000 people sank off Haiti; at least 700 of the people on board drowned. Ten years ago: Twenty-one people were killed in a stampede at the crowded E2 nightclub in Chicago. European Union leaders declared their solidarity with the United States, warning Saddam Hussein that Iraq faced one “last chance” to disarm peacefully but calling war a last resort.

Beat goes on for Penn State Foundation commits $50K to project students at dance marathon STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State students willing to stay on their feet 46 straight hours to raise money for pediatric cancer research point to a 7-year-old girl with short brown hair and a shy smile as a beacon of inspiration. Nine months into remission from leukemia, Emily Whitehead was looking forward to her first trip back to the return to the IFC/ Panhellenic Dance Marathon in two years. THON, as it’s more commonly known, is billed as the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, raising money for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Students have raised more than $89 million over almost three dozen years, including a record $10.89 million last year alone.

“That was part of what we talked about when she was sick, to keep fighting,” said Emily’s father, Tom Whitehead, said of the goal of returning to THON. “It’s really overwhelming. It’s our favorite weekend of the year.” The dance marathon, which ends Sunday at 4 p.m., resembles a 46-hour party. Participants aren’t actually dancing the entire time — but they can’t sit and they definitely can’t sleep. They get plenty of encouragement, though. On Saturday, former assistant football coach Jay Paterno was among those who took the microphone and gave a pep talk. “All of the THON kids, and those families, when you battle against pediatric cancer,” he said, “know that we are with you every step of the way.”

Fifteen years ago, the Eberly Foundation made a significant contribution to City MissionLiving Stones in its efforts to renovate and restore the former Gallatin School in Uniontown. At that time, the agency was a fledgling nonprofit and had undertaken a multimilliondollar project to reuse the old school for 30 units of transitional housing for the homeless. The Gallatin building was one of seven neighborhood schools that Robert Eberly Sr. had hoped to see reused. When the project was complete, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and over the years has served hundreds of homeless families, according to the City Mission. One year ago, the City

Mission began a capital campaign, that among other projects, includes the upgrade of the historic building. Robert E. Eberly Jr., president of the Eberly Foundation, recently approved a commitment by the foundation of $50,000 in support of the project. The money will be used to replace the roof on the building, make improvements to the 30 apartments that have been heavily used since the building opened and renovate the existing community room/ kitchen area. “This building plays a critical role in City Mission’s service to the homeless,” said Irmi Gaut, the City Mission’s executive director. “Families who are served in transitional housing have two years during which time City Mission staff

She and her husband of 38 years, Jeffrey, reside in Brownsville. They have two daughters and a granddaughter. Jones encourages students interested in becoming educators to have a fire and desire to teach others. “You have the op portunities to shape the lives you touch. Every attorney, doctor, president has had their life touched by a teacher,” Jones said. Jones admits in her 40 years of teaching, she has seen changes, most in the form of technology, which she embraces. “Education is keeping up with a changing world. Education is so much different because students can learn in so many different ways,” Jones said. As acting president, Jones is leading the university during a period of smart technology and she encourages students to learn to exist in a global world. “We live in a global society and we have to make sure we are preparing our students,” said Jones. It is a goal of Cal U, she said, to prepare students to meet the needs of workforce by working closely with corporations and designing curricula to fulfill those demands. “We want that Cal U degree to hold value,” said Jones In her position as acting president, Jones is poised to take on any challenges with a smile. “If there are areas that need to be improved, I’m ready to do it.” Jones said. “My granddaughter always asks me, ‘Granny why is that smile on your face?’ I say, ‘It’s all the memories.’”

She facilitated the program for 20 years, assisting students in Fayette and Greene counties by providing supplemental academic instruction, tutoring, career planning and self-awareness classes to help develop the skills they need to complete high school successfully and go on to succeed in post-secondary education. “I always wanted students going through the program to know (that) without education, nothing else matters,” Jones said. “It gives you a good foundation to do anything you want to do.” She also served as Department of Academic Development Services for 11 years before becoming an associate dean of the College of Education and Human Services in 2000. In 2008, Jones was named provost and vice president for academic affairs, a position she held until being appointed acting university president in May 2012. Greatly influenced by her second grade teacher, Jones’ passion for education came at a young age. “She made me love school until the day she graduated.” As a child she “played school” and was thrilled when she transitioned from playing student to playing teacher. Jones credits her parents, Ronald “Bunny” and Geraldine Johns, with giving her the firm foundation to build her life and education upon. She explains her father graduated from high school in 1948 and was unable to go to college because he had to help support his family. “He always wanted more for his children,” Jones said. “He took me

About time

Everyone should be treated equally Most Pennsylvanians were probably surprised to learn this week that the General Assembly’s LGBT Equality Caucus has more than doubled in size from 26 last year to 58 this year. However, the bigger surprise is that such a caucus is needed at all. The main purpose of the caucus is to make sure that lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgendered residents have equal footing with their heterosexual peers. In other words, that all men (and women) are treated equally. Not exactly controversial stuff. In this day and age, who can be against such a reasonable concept? The caucus’ aims are not controversial — or really anything other than common decencies. This isn’t an attempt to tackle a hot button issue like gay marriage. One of the caucus’ first priorities is to reintroduce House Bill 300 to ban employment, housing, credit and public accommodations discrimination. You read that correctly — the caucus is talking about making it illegal to deny someone credit or a hotel room because of their sexual orientation. It’s hard to believe that we’re still dealing with issues like people being denied housing, employment or credit over their sexual orientation. And while it should’ve been handled long ago, the demographic tea leaves make it fairly certain it will not be a problem in the future. Across the board, young voters are more tolerant of alternative lifestyles than their elders, and attitudes nationally are shifting at what amounts to an unprecedented pace. Statewide, CivicScience for Equality Pennsylvania said a survey of 1,000 adult Pennsylvanians late last month found that 62 percent support equal civil rights for LGBT residents, 69 percent favor legal protections against being fired because of sexual orientation, and 72 percent agreed that it is wrong for someone to be refused service because of their sexual orientation. Discrimination is an ugly and unproductive trait. One that should not be allowed to fester because of an adherence to the status quo and the fear of going out on a political limb — even if that limb is increasingly in the mainstream. We applaud the efforts of the LGBT Equality Caucus and those lawmakers who make up its ranks. The overwhelming majority of the caucus members are made up of legislators from the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas. None are from Fayette, Greene or Washington counties. But that certainly doesn’t mean that there aren’t lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgendered residents all across the commonwealth, including in our neck of the woods. Legislators would be wise to remember that these folks vote along with their friends and family members. The times are changing, and we would urge our local lawmakers get in step with this progressive movement. Whether to join the caucus or not is up to them, but they should definitely stand up and be counted when it comes to making sure that all Pennsylvania residents, regardless of their sexual orientation, are treated equally. This isn’t a request for special privileges. It’s a mandate that all citizens of the commonwealth be treated with dignity and respect. No one should be against that.

State of the Union shows discord Behind many of the central tenets of President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday — the economy, climate change, voting rights, gun control, immigration, Medicare — lay the caveat that for these issues to be truly resolved, the yawning partisan divide in Congress has to be sewn together. President Obama begins his address, in fact, by quoting John F. Kennedy’s call-to-action: “The Constitution makes us not rivals for power, but partners for progress.” From there, Obama bullet-pointed plans for a better America, all underscored by the fact that in the current stagnated environment, nothing will get done. The thing is, every year we talk about healing party divides, and every year, the SOTU address promotes further division. At the SOTU, we really witness just how stagnant and separated the parties are. It’s true that since 2011 — as a tribute for Rep. Gabby Giffords who at that time was recovering from a gunshot wound to her head — Congress has assembled themselves into a bipartisan

Jessica Vozel seating arrangement instead of lumping together by party affiliation and letting a literal aisle slice between them. After intermingling that once, Congress would look like jerks if they went back to segregating, so they’ve been keeping up the bipartisan arrangement, begrudgingly. But in fact, the bipartisan seating seems to further showcase the animosity between parties. As the camera pans for reaction shots, you now have one enthusiastic clapping Democrat next to a stone-faced Republican. And, even worse, throughout the entire speech we saw exactly this arrangement seated behind our president. Vice President Joe Biden’s face held a

perpetual grin (it’s possible that’s just the way his face is shaped) while Speaker John Boehner scowled on and on. He didn’t even clap while Obama was talking about honoring Newton victims! Not since 9/11 has America been so uniformly saddened by an event, and there Boehner sat, his face sagging into a grimace. And then, of course, there are the rebuttals following the SOTU. Why? What is the real necessity of it? The State of the Union is not a debate. And the rebuttal — delivered this year by conservative darling Marco Rubio — is designed to be combative. If a conservative delivers a rebuttal that says, “Hey, I think Obama had some good points up there,” he or she risks alienating the base and losing power. Ah, power, the thing politicians are constantly racing toward. Some argue that it’s silly to pretend — even for a night — that Congress is a happy-go-lucky crowd who are best friends outside of sessions. And it’s true that we don’t want a disingenuous government in addition to a divided one. But isn’t there something to

be said for recognizing the president’s position and at the very least giving a conciliatory clap? I promise, I’d say the same if it were Bush up there talking. In fact, I did say the same thing during Bush’s addresses. The flagrant display of animosity at these speeches from the party who doesn’t occupy the White House has always bothered me. Whether you agree with the president or not, the majority of Americans voted him up there. In his address, Obama outlined the role of government: “It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few, that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation,” he said. It’s a nice sentiment, but the address and the divisive circumstances that surround it don’t give me much hope that the government’s “unfinished task” will ever be completed.

Corbett wrong about Medicaid expansion BY STATE REP. TIMOTHY S. MAHONEY

Gov. Tom Corbett — who has said “yes” to privatizing the state lottery and the state liquor store system — has finally issued a resounding “No!” when it comes to expanded health care for the uninsured poor. Even though the federal government is willing to pump $40 billion over 10 years into Pennsylvania as a commitment to expanding Medicaid, which would help 500,000 more people get health insurance, Corbett refuses to let Pennsylvania participate. Thus, Corbett has unilaterally decided that Pennsylvania will join South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Idaho and Maine as states not participating in Medicaid expansion. Pennsylvanians should find it ironic that the same governor who unilaterally decided to privatize the state lottery, on the grounds that we’ll get more money, also unilaterally turns his back on more money when it would help Pennsylvania taxpayers get health care. Here’s the big flaw in Corbett’s logic: Those people who need medical

care will still get it — in many c a s e s leaving the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or our cashMahoney strapped hospitals to continue picking up or absorbing the tab. While it is true that the federal government will only pick up the full freight for the first three years of Medicaid expansion, it is also true that the cost of doing nothing means that ultimately, state and local budgets will still be strained forever. Someone will still end up paying when an uninsured person needs their appendix removed, or requires county mental health services, or needs emergency surgery due to an accident. Under Gov. Tom “Ignore the Problem” Corbett, the person opening up his or her wallet will remain the Pennsylvania taxpayer, the health care facility or the person who does have insurance but gets charged more for tests and procedures to cover the costs incurred by those who cannot pay. Corbett worries that

down the road, expanding Medicaid would create a “huge tax burden” for Pennsylvania, as the state begins picking up more of the costs. But his selective and faulty logic ignores this fiscal choice: Is it better to have the federal government pick up a portion of the tab, or pay 100 percent of it yourself? That’s the real choice here, because those 500,000 uninsured people aren’t going away. They’re not all on the public dole, either. Corbett’s own spokesperson said that under the federal rules, a family of four could earn up to $30,000 a year and still receive Medicaid coverage. Many of these people are working. They just don’t work for an employer who offers health insurance as a benefit. Should we turn their backs on them completely, as Corbett prefers? I do not think that’s right — morally or financially — especially when a solid option exists. Think of all the good that $40 billion over 10 years could do. It wouldn’t only help keep vulnerable working people healthy; it would create good-paying jobs all over the health care spectrum, and those folks’ higher incomes and increased spending would enhance state and local tax

revenue. Honestly, when is the last time you ever heard of a high-level government official turning down $40 billion in federal assistance to help solve an intractable problem? My bet is that you’d have to travel far and wide to find someone dumb enough to fit that bill. You’d probably have to head someplace like South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Idaho or Maine. Someone needs to remind Corbett that he’s the governor of Pennsylvania, where we aspire to move forward instead of remaining stuck in neutral. State Rep. Timothy S. Mahoney, D-Fayette, represents the 51st Legislative District.

Today’s Question: Do you favor an increase in the minimum wage? James Barto Unemployed

Yes, I believe that the economy is worse now than it was five years ago, and it just keeps progressing worse and worse. People say we’re in recession, but I honestly think we’re in a depression right now. Like, $7.25 is money, yes, but you still need more money to put food in your mouth.

It will help and hurt. Certainly, people who get the raise will see additional income, and the problem is it may hurt employers to the fact that they cut jobs or cut hours for people who are working. So it may be good for some but bad for others.

Words Web from the

In his State of the Union address, President Obama called for raise the federal minimum wage, from $7.25 to $9 an hour. Do you think this is a good idea? Will it hurt or help the economy? “It’s about time.” “When the minimum wage goes up, the price of housing, groceries and gas goes up. A wage increase is an exercise in futility.” “Absolutely. This will help!” “[When] Obama took office, he promised an increase to match the current cost of living based off the ratio of the cost of living and minimum wage. Most families living on minimum wage are well below the poverty line. Yes, it would possibly drive up prices, yet in previous times it has proven to improve the economy and increase spending as well as [provide] an overall better life for many Americans. It is needed for America to progress instead of regress.” “Sounds good to minimum-wage earners, but may keep small businesses from making it or expanding. Tax cuts for businesses would help offset the increase of the minimum


Personally, I think it would, because families that have babies and really need the money, it’d help them a lot more. Knowing they raised it because there are a lot of people that really do need the money and that certain jobs don’t help, and if they raised it, it would help them on the money thing, because a baby needs food.



Undecided, yes and no. Yes, because people will get more money. No, because then your rent will go up if you pay rent or more taxes will be taken out of everything else. So it’s kind of both.

Yes, but no, because, no, taxes will be a problem and, yes, because people need money.

This Week’s Question

“I think wages need to go up just as cost of living does. And how about decreasing the government’s salaries!” “Raising the minimum wage WILL NOT help. Everything is relative. Within a short period of time the cost of goods will go up. Not to mention the possibility of people losing jobs because of the increased cost to an employer.” “I don’t know, but it would be good for the fast-food worker working so hard!” “Higher minimum wage will equal less minimum-wage jobs.”

Do you think the minimum wage should be increased? q Yes q No q Unusure

“If you adjust for inflation, the highest the minimum wage has ever been was in 1968. It was $1.60 per hour, which would be $10.64 in 2012 dollars. So the minimum wage has actually dropped while the profits for large companies have skyrocketed since then. Nobody here can tell me this is right or makes sense.” “What people don’t understand about raising the minimum wage is that it hurts the middle class and does nothing to help the poorer classes, because prices will raise equally. Minimum wage is meant for a minimum-skilled job. It’s not meant to be a living wage. You want more money, find a better job.” “A higher minimum wage means people have more money in their pocket at the end of the week. That’s more money for the local economy. Minimum wage workers typically don’t stick all their money in a mattress.”

TV feeding us garbage I’m writing to lodge a complaint against the many networks who are feeding us mental garbage. Our cable company replied to our complaints by stating that they can only provide what is sent to them. Our minds cannot thrive on the junk food we are being force-fed on most networks. I know I can turn off the tube, but TV has the potential to be a great asset to us and our children. There is much we should demand from those who decide on the content. Please join with me and write to the sponsors of shows like “Honey Boo Boo,’’ “Say Yes to the Dress,’’ “The Kardashians,’’ “Jerry Springer,’’ most of the MTV programs and other reality shows that are part of the successful dumbing down of America. Tell them you won’t buy their products if they pay for this type of programming. Take a stand. Ask them to support with their advertisements more moral programming and educational programs, especially those that provide information on the sciences. Teach me geography! Teach me zoology! Teach me botany! Teach me all the special things about each of our states and of other countries! Show me a tour of the Louvre’s great art! My brain is hungry. And it is not hungry for celebrity crap. Give me something that can make a difference. At the very least show us quality programs and movies that haven’t already been aired many times over.

What we are receiving from TV is perfect instructions on how to become a self-centered, uneducated, slovenly, ill-mannered and ungodly population. Please write some letters and change what is available. We are falling behind in education. TV could be the right place to start educating our children and ourselves while relaxing in our own homes. And keep in mind that learning doesn’t have to be boring. Let the sponsors know what you’d like to see or learn about. Jean Duranko Uniontown

Pope Benedict praised Pope Benedict XVI promoted tradition.His books on Jesus Christ are a treasure. He has written encyclicals such as “God is Love’’ and has promoted and made new saints for the faithful. He was devoted to the rosary, prayer and blessed Mother Mary. He has always loved and worked for the church. He would have liked to retire under Pope John Paul II but was denied. We thank God for his leadership in the past eight years as pope. God’s will will triumph through it all. He will retire to a monastery to pray for you and me and the heart of the world and the faith, his church. He was truthful to tradition and open to the ecumenical spirit. Read St. Paul. You must be true to the gospel, the epistle and the tradition you have learned from the beginning.

State police said someone broke into approximately 12 video game machines at Corner Pocket Arcade in Laurel Mall and removed $400 between Feb. 12 and 13.

State police are investigating an incident at the residence of Wendy Whipkey of Fury Street on Friday. Police said actor(s) forcibly entered the residence of the victim and fled shortly after in a gold colored sedan with unknown tags. No theft was reported.


Hit and run reported State police in Uniontown are investigating a onevehicle hit and run that happened around 2 a.m. Thursday. Police said a 2004-05 Ford Ranger was traveling on Falls Avenue and excited the right side of the roadway, striking a brick wall and taking out a 24-foot section of the wall. The driver fled towards Route 201.


Two arrested State police said two individuals were arrested and charged following an incident on Friday at 11 p.m. at Sheetz on Route 51. Police said Frank Springer, 18, and a juvenile were charged with disorderly conduct and harassment.

The state Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill that will allow for the expungement of minor criminal records. State Sen. Tim Solobay, D-Canonsburg, said the bill has the support the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association, the largest prosecutor’s group in the state. In an effort to help with employment prospects, the bill would allow those who were convicted of certain second and thirddegree misdemeanor offenses to ask the court to expunge the record. Depending on the offenses, the person seeking expungement would have to keep a clean record for either seven or 10 years

to request their record be cleared. “I appreciate the support of those who work on the front lines of the criminal justice system,” Solobay said. “It wipes away any misconception that expungement means going soft on crime. The truth is, prosecutors don’t want to see the same faces coming through the courthouse time after time and we all have to pay taxes. This bill recognizes genuine efforts at rehabilitation; it makes sense for our justice system and it makes sense for taxpayers.” Pennsylvania’s prison population has jumped from just over 8,000 to more than 51,000 in the past 20 years, at an

average cost of $90 a day per prisoner. Sentencing reforms enacted in 2012 have already begun to lower prison costs and the legislature needs to continue to reform the system, Solobay said. “Computers have made criminal records checks more common and the recession has made jobhunting more competitive,” he said. “There’s no reason why a bad check charge from the 1980s should prevent someone from getting a job and supporting themselves today.” Senate Bill 391 is similar to Senate Bill 1220 of the 2011-2012 session, which also cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously, but never

received a floor vote. The bill allows courts to grant expungement of a criminal record if the crime is a misdemeanor of the third or second degree and the individual has not been arrested or prosecuted for seven to ten years following the completion of the sentence or judicial supervision. It would not apply to offenses punishable by more than one year in prison or pertaining to certain forms of assault, sex offense, cruelty to animals, firearms offenses, and certain other crimes. Under current law, the crimes could not be expunged until after the offender reaches the age of 70, or had been deceased for more than three years.

Russian region begins recovery from meteor fall CHELYABINSK, Russia (AP) — As a small army of people worked to replace acres of windows shattered by the enormous explosion from a meteor, many joked on Saturday about what had happened in this troubled pocket of Russia. One of the most popular jests: Residents of the meteor were terrified to see Chelyabinsk approaching. The fireball that streaked into the sky over this tough industrial city at about sunrise Friday was undeniably traumatic. Nearly 1,200 people were reported injured by the shock wave from the explosion, estimated to be as strong as 20 Hiroshima atomic bombs. But it also brought a sense of cooperation in a troubled region. Large numbers of volunteers came forward to help fix the damage caused by the explosion and many residents came together on the Internet — first to find out what happened and soon to make jokes. Chelyabinsk, nicknamed Tankograd because it produced the famed Soviet T-34 tanks, can be as grim as its backbone heavy industries. Long winters where temperatures routinely hit minus-22 add to a general dour mien, as do worries about dangerous facilities in the

Associated Press

In this frame grab made from dashboard camera video, a meteor streaks through the sky over Chelyabinsk, about 930 miles east of Moscow, Friday. With a blinding flash and a booming shock wave, the meteor blazed across the western Siberian sky and exploded with the force of 20 atomic bombs, injuring more than 1,000 people as it blasted out windows and spread panic in a city of 1 million.

surrounding region. In 1957, a waste tank at the Mayak nuclear weapons plant in the Chelyabinsk region exploded, contaminating 9,200 square miles and prompting authorities to evacuate 10,000 nearby residents. It is now Russia’s main nuclear waste disposal facility. A vast plant for disposing of chemical weapons lies 50 miles east of the city.

“The city is a place where people always seem bitter with each other,” said music teacher Ilya Shibanov. But the meteor “was one of the rare times when people started to live together through one event.” For many, it’s provided a reason to roll up their sleeves and get to work repairing the more than 4,000 buildings in the city and region where windows

were shattered, or to provide other services. More than 24,000 people, including volunteers, have mobilized in the region to cover windows, gather warm clothes and food, and make other relief efforts, the regional governor’s office said. Crews from glass companies in adjacent regions were being flown in. Gov. Mikhail Yurevich on

Saturday said that damage from the high-altitude explosion — believed to have been as powerful as 20 Hiroshima bombs — is estimated at 1 billion rubles ($33 million). He promised to have all the broken windows replaced within a week. But that is a long wait in a frigid region. The midday temperature in Chelyabinsk was 10 degrees, and for many the immediate task was to put up plastic sheeting and boards on shattered residential windows. Meanwhile, the search continued for major fragments of the meteor. In the town of Chebarkul, 50 miles west of Chelyabinsk city, divers explored the bottom of an ice-crusted lake looking for meteor fragments believed to have fallen there, leaving a 20-foot-wide hole. Many people were still trying to process the memories of the strange day they’d lived through. Valery Fomichov said he had been out for a run when the meteor streaked across the sky shortly after sunrise. “I glanced up and saw a glowing dot in the west. And it got bigger and bigger, like a soccer ball, until it became blindingly white and I turned away,” he said.

and that there is maybe somebody out there that knows something,” she said. “The truth would come forward and end the story. This is a story that has a beginning but doesn’t have an end. It would be nice to have the ending.” Truth be told, Wilt’s death created a fork in the road for McClintock. She could stay submerged in the past — no shame in that. People still talk about her husband. “People mention his name … I don’t think we ever have a gathering where someone doesn’t bring up his name and laugh and have something funny to say about him,” she said. “We don’t talk about what happened or what led up to his death or anything like that, but just talk about the fun parts of it. Things that he did. Things that he said. That kind of stuff is what we talk about.” And thinking about those days from long ago comes natural to those have experienced this kind of grief particularly because the still-at-large killer has denied closure to the survivors. That means that no matter where McClintock and other family members go, little reminders pop up from the past to remind them of the man they lost. “Its on my mind all the time,” McClintock said. “I mean I don’t think you ever forget it. It’s the little things. I look at my son (Shawn), who looks nothing like his father, acts nothing like his father, but there’s just times you look at him and he grins or he laughs and you see it there.” Over the years, McClintock built a new life. She remarried and raised her son Shawn, who was 5 years old when his father was killed. “I often wonder if things would have been different, how Shawn would have turned out,” said McClintock, now 57, of Confluence. “My husband (Scott) now has raised him, and is a good man. So we don’t question it too much. But I think about it, you do, all the time.” Yet, despite the passage of time, that tragic memory remains strong enough to create a struggle between her

Rosemary McClintock, 57, holds up a photo of her late husband, Donald Roy Wilt, at her home in Confluence on Feb. 7. Wilt was murdered in 1980, at the age of 26, in what police said was a road rage incident along Route 40 in Henry Clay Township. “It was such a shock,” said McClintock, who was getting ready for a dinner date with Wilt when she heard that he was in the hospital. “I always wish there would be an ending to it and you know who did it and could move on and put it in the past, just go on with it.”

Rosemary McClintock, shown recently at her home in Confluence, was the wife of Donald Roy Wilt. Her late husband was murdered nearly 33 years ago. McClintock has since remarried, but the events that occurred that night still linger in her mind with the killer at large. “I think about it all the time, it’s hard not to,” said McClintock, who is often reminded of her late husband when their son, Shawn, smiles or laughs in a way that reminds her of Wilt. Amanda Steen|Herald-Standard

past life and the present. “You never drive by there (where Wilt was killed) when you don’t think about it,” McClintock said. “It’s always on your mind. You try not to. You try to go on, build a new life. It’s almost like you are two people. That happened then, and you were one person. Now you are another person.” McClintock’s story begins in 1973 when she married Wilt in June shortly after graduating from high school. Wilt had served his country in the U.S. Marines before settling down and starting a family. McClintock described her husband as the type of person who made friends easily perhaps because of his jovial nature. “He was fun loving and a just a jokester,” she said. “He really liked to play jokes on you a lot.

He was always laughing and a very pleasant person.” McClintock described her husband as a good father who worshiped their son. She vividly recalled the day the she and her husband brought their newborn baby home from the hospital. “When we went to get him, we had no diapers or nothing like that so we had to stop at the store,” she said. “I told him to stay in the car and I’ll go in the store and get everything we need. So he said OK. When I came back out, there he is holding Shawn up at the window. When people were walking by, he would say, ‘See my son, see my son.’ There’s people standing there talking. He was just so excited about it. We came home and got down to being parents. He really loved Shawn and

worshiped him, thought he was everything.” McClintock said Wilt was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt. She remembers the time when he bought a couple of coonhounds. “We had two dogs that we just had to buy,” she said with a smile in her voice. “The first night he took them out, they ran away. They were a couple hundred dollars a piece. He came home that night and he was just beside himself because these dogs had run away.” And then the rest of the story – as radio commentator Paul Harvey would say – came forth twisted and mangled by Wilt’s tragedy. McClintock said one dog was hit by a car and the other coonhound turned up after Wilt had died. “The other one took off and we didn’t find it for a long long time,”

she said. “And then after my husband was killed, his uncle came to me and said ‘I know where’s Don’s coondog is.’ He said there is a guy in Grantsville that has this dog. So I went over. And I knew it was our dog as soon as he saw us...His uncle kept saying you got to buy this dog back because it was Don’s dog. He loved that dog. So I had to buy the dog back.” But enough about Don’s dog. The hunter had better luck with creating lasting memories with his son when they went on hunting trips. “When he’d take Shawn, he’d tell Shawn you can’t tell your mother what we were doing,” she said. “This is our secret. Shawn would come in and say I can’t tell you where me and daddy were at because it is our secret. I’d say OK and then little by little you’d get the secret.”

Wilt’s son was 5-yearsold when he was killed. McClintock’s voice was choked with emotion as she recalled trying to explain where dad was to the little boy. “I’d talked with him before that and told him that his dad went to heaven. He understood that,” she said. McClintock shared a memory that no parent should have to endure. Wilt’s funeral would take place on his son’s first day of school. “The day of his funeral, my son was going to kindergarten for the first time,” McClintock said. “Nobody wanted me to send him. They said you shouldn’t send him to school, but that was a big thing to him because he was going to school for the first time. I decided to go ahead and send him. I sent him to school and then I brought him home and then that evening we had to go to the funeral home.” Fast forward to the present to a murder case that remains unsolved. State police have kept in contact with McClintock over the years. Does McClintock want to know who killed her husband? Yes, but not in the way Herald-Standard readers might expect. “I always said that I hoped they would find out who did it and right before I died, they would lean down and say, ‘this is who did it and then I would just die,’” she said. “That way I would know, but I would never have to worry about anybody hurting anyone else.” Like many other survivors interviewed as part of this series, McClintock grasps for answers about what kind of person would do such a thing to her husband. She said at least a dozen family members and friends who knew Wilt have died without learning who killed this man loved by so many. “How many more people will be gone before we’ll ever have an answer?” she said. “It’d be nice to have an answer, to know. There is somebody out there who looks at themselves everyday in the mirror knowing that they did this. I just don’t know how people can do that. I don’t know how people can kill someone and just look in the mirror everyday and not know they are responsible. They have to answer for something that they’ve done.”

Work starts on N.J. boardwalk SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — When Superstorm Sandy washed over this popular Jersey shore resort, water poured in through the heating vents and electrical outlets of Linda Polites’ and Michael Riley’s home. A 10-foot section of boardwalk slammed into the house as they fled to the attic. Hours later, they waded through armpitdeep water to a military truck, then headed to the first of five emergency shelters that have been their home since. On Friday, they traveled from their current shelter to see the start of the reconstruction of the boardwalk in

Seaside Heights, a town known worldwide from the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore.” “It’s time to build new character,” Riley said. “You don’t lose your memories. It’s time to make new ones.” Heavy equipment including a gigantic drill and a piledriving machine were brought onto the sand in the south end of town Friday morning. They quickly began drilling holes in the sand and pounding wooden pilings into them, shaking the ground for blocks around. It marked the beginning of a $3.6 million contract the borough awarded to rebuild

the boardwalk. Mayor William Akers said the initial work — restoring the boardwalk so that it can be walked on safely — should be done by May 10. Railings, lighting and ramps will be part of a second contract that has yet to be awarded. The project is also likely to include a protective seawall, and cost between $6 million and $7 million, the mayor said. “It’s a huge day for us, a new beginning for the town,” he said. “It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work, starting with the rescues, the cleanup, the planning, culminating in the actual rebuilding of Seaside Heights.”

Walton to seek seat on bench

student should be afforded the same opportunities, regardless of zip code. Teachers also deserve their pensions, she said. “That person spends more hours in a day with that child than I do during the school year,” Snyder said. “They’re an important part of our children’s lives. I believe public education is something we owe to the next generation, to do it right.” Many are not in favor of property taxes, according to Snyder and state Sen. Tim Solobay,

A Fayette County man will seek both the Democratic and Republican nod in his primary election bid to fill one of the two available county Court Walton of Common Pleas judgeships. Attorney Steven Walton said that he was urged to seek the position by local business owners, county residents and elected officials who are concerned about the integrity and impartiality of the political and judicial systems. “The integrity of the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas is of utmost importance to me and impartiality is the foundation of the judiciary,” he said. “The perception of a person, right or wrong, that they will not be given a fair shake erodes our system of justice.” Senior Judges Gerald R. Solomon and Ralph C. Warman have retired, creating the two bench vacancies. Walton is an associate with the Pittsburgh law firm of Rothman and Gordon. While he does have a Fayette County client base, Walton said that his work outside the county would allow him to be more impartial on the bench. “It is easy to say that you will be impartial, but it is not necessarily a smooth transition to the bench especially for those whose career was mainly prosecuting the accused or working exclusively for a local law firm,” he said.

Walton said that his legal career has afforded him the opportunity for “righting wrongs,” including successfully defending a homeowner in a lawsuit brought by a predatory home improvement company; defending a taxpayer in a suit brought by a municipal zoning officer and representing a local student that was charged with a summary offense after defending himself in a bullying incident. “My practice mirrors Fayette County’s court caseload,” he said. “It is a common misconception that judges at this level primarily deal with criminal matters.” According to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Administrative Office statistics, since 2005, about 70 percent of the Fayette County court proceedings were tied to civil and family matters, while less than 5 percent of criminal cases went to trial in 2011, said Walton. During his nearly two decades in the legal profession – including his work as an attorney, law clerk and paralegal with law firms in Pittsburgh and outside Pennsylvania – Walton said

Bob and Barbara McKnight are among the seasonals. “Today’s a great day to ask me what I like about Florida,’’ said McKnight, a

Throughout his career, Walton said that he has negotiated numerous settlements on behalf of small business owners with the U.S. Department of Labor and served as primary drafter and editor of the report and recommendations of the special master in the 2009 U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission versus U.S. Steel Corp. discrimination suit. He additionally offers his legal services free of charge to victims of domestic violence that are seeking protection-fromabuse orders in Fayette and Allegheny counties.

Bob McKnight said, “We’ve made contact with people we hadn’t seen in years.’’ The Fayette County Club had been meeting six times a year in a recreation center at The Villages but is in a transition as it goes out on its own. The transition will allow more people to join who don’t live in The Villages. The new meeting schedule is being decided. Ellen Kustron said the club is a welcoming place for people who recognize the good in Fayette County. “It’s nice to get together with people who have the same memories of Fayette County,’’ she said.

inevitably be disputes and Fayette County’s court will soon decide cases between landowners and the oil and gas industry,” he said. “Understanding mineral rights law and oil and gas lease issues will be an absolute necessity for any candidate for the bench.” Walton said that as a former member of the Westmoreland County Drug and Alcohol Commissioner board of directors, he recognizes the link between drug and

alcohol abuse and adult and juvenile crime, and will work with the county district attorney’s office, drug and alcohol commission, school administrators and the community to minimize the epidemic of drug abuse and its related crime. “I also want to further explore the development of alternative sentencing and supervised treatment for veterans facing incarceration for minor criminal charges,” he said. Walton attended Laurel

Highlands High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, a master’s degree in industrial/organization psychology from George Mason University and a juris doctorate degree from Duquesne University. Walton is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Fayette County Bar Association, and Allegheny County Bar Association and is admitted by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

He is also a member of the Fayette Chamber of Commerce. Walton lives in Menallen Township with his two children. “I see no better means of giving back to my community,” he said of his candidacy. “We are all blessed with certain skills and life experiences and I believe that my life’s path has led me to serve Fayette County as a judge with the Court of Common Pleas.” The primary election is May 21.

WHITEHALL — When the third-seeded North Catholic girls basketball team built a 22-2 first quarter lead, it would have been easy for Frazier to fold in Saturday’s WPIAL girls Class A first round playoff game at Baldwin High School. But the Lady Commodores battled to the best of their ability before falling, 65-37. North Catholic (14-9) got 14 points from senior standout Lauren Wolosik in a first quarter in which the Trojanettes scored the game’s first 11 points. Frazier (10-12) managed just a basket by Lauren Timko before North Catholic closed the quarter with 11 more points, including a 3-point basket by Wolosik from 10 feet beyond the arc at the buzzer. The Lady Commodores started the second quarter with a 10-6 advantage that included a 3-point play by Cassidy Guiser and a 3-point basket by Hannah Kline. Minutes later, a basket by Alena Blaszczak, a free throw by Kline, and two foul shots by Timko cut the deficit to 30-17 before the Trojanettes scored twice more to lead 34-17 at halftime. North Catholic held a 17-10 advantage in the third quarter, which saw Timko add four points and Guiser finish

COLLIER TWP. — Jefferson-Morgan freshman Kayla Yorko hit five free throws late in the fourth quarter to ice a 29-25 playoff win against Eden Christian in Saturday’s WPIAL girls Class A preliminary round playoff game at Chartiers Valley High School. “She’s the best free throw shooter on the team,” Jefferson-Morgan head coach Ellen Hildebrand said. “We wanted to get the ball in her hands.” Yorko said she was prepared when she stepped to the line and credited the team’s seniors in fueling what might be the team’s first playoff win. “I was pretty nervous, but I practice shooting free throws,” Yorko said. “It was our seniors that brought us here.” Hildebrand credited the Lady Rockets’ defense, especially in the second half, as the key to the win. JeffersonMorgan held the Lady Warriors to two points in the third quarter and eight points in the HOLLY TONINI entire second half. “I think our defense was the Frazier’s Lauren Timko (4) is the first to score for the Lady Commodores key to the win,” Hildebrand against North Catholic during Saturday’s WPIAL girls preliminary said. “We have four freshmen playoff game played at Baldwin High School. on our team and it was time with five points, including a for us to do something special The Trojanettes closed the 3-pointer at the buzzer that game with a 14-10 edge in the for our seniors.” Jefferson-Morgan jumped she launched from in front of FRAZIER, Page C4 out to a 6-1 lead fueled the scorer‘s table.

by four points from Katie Shaffer. Eden Christian then tightened up its defense and found its shooting touch on offense which was a lethal combination. The Lady Warriors tore off a 12-0 run to take a 13-6 lead that stretched midway into the second quarter. During its run, Eden Christian’s 2-3 defense forced the Rocket’s shooters away from the basket and they were cold shooting. Hildebrand called a timeout to regroup and Jefferson Morgan regained some poise. “I told them it’s a long game and to take a deep breath,” Hildebrand said. “We really needed to get into an offensive rhythm at that point. We weren’t being patient and deliberate enough.” Her strategy worked as Ally Bogden hit a jumper and a 3-pointer to keep the Rockets close as they trailed 17-13 at the break. “We told our girls at the half that we had to do it now. We were four points down. We said we can’t let the hole get any bigger or it was gong to be too big of a hole to get out of,” Hildebrand said. “I told them there’s no more time left in this season. We needed to go out right now and get it done.” In a slow third quarter, neither team scored until midway through the quarter. Jefferson-Morgan then caught fire with a 7-2 run fueled by a Yorko 3-pointer to take a 20-19 lead with less than two minutes left.

Pitt falls short against Marquette MILWAUKEE (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon said his team needed to do three things in order to beat No. 18 Marquette on Saturday. The 16th-ranked Panthers did none of them. Vander Blue scored 19 points to lead the Golden Eagles to a 79-69 win over Pittsburgh, handing the Panthers just their second loss in nine games. Marquette shot 57 percent (26 for 46) from the field, went 22 for 29 from the free-throw line and outrebounded Pittsburgh 33-24. “There were three things we wanted to do,” Dixon said. “Hold them under 40 percent defensively; we didn’t come close to that. We wanted to keep them off the free-throw line; we certainly didn’t come close to that. Then obviously the rebounding, we got outrebounded, so simply put, the 10-point loss is really pretty easy to see.” Lamar Patterson scored 19 points to lead Pittsburgh (20-6, 8-5 Big East), which entered the game fifth in the nation in scoring defense (54.4 ppg). Tray Woodall added 10 points and eight assists.

The Golden Eagles (18-6, 9-3) got their 23rd straight home win, the fourth-longest active streak in the nation. They also won the teams’ previous meeting this season, 74-67 in overtime at Pittsburgh on Jan. 20. “I think if I were to say our best performance on the road in Big East play would be at Pitt, and I thought our best performance at home in a Big East game thus far would be Pitt,” Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. “I think they’re one of the top two or three teams in our league.” Blue, Marquette’s leading scorer, was 7 of 8 from the field and 3 for 4 on free throws to go with six rebounds for the Golden Eagles, who moved into a tie with No. 15 Georgetown atop the Big East. On Monday, Blue made just three shots and scored seven points in a 63-55 loss to the Hoyas. “I had sort of a weird feeling about how I played at Georgetown,” Blue said. “I felt like we could’ve got that one there. That was a big one. . I just wanted to make sure I was mentally and physically there

right out of the gates to give us the boost and energy that we needed to win. I was just thinking, take what was given to me, don’t force anything and just play with unbelievable energy.” Davante Gardner finished with 14 points for Marquette and scored 10 of his team’s 11 during a key stretch late in the game. Gardner started his scoring spree when he tipped in his own miss to give the Golden Eagles a 63-50 lead with 6:35 to play. Woodall missed a 3-pointer but Pittsburgh got the offensive rebound. The Panthers also got the rebound on a miss by Talib Zanna, and then Dixon was called for his first technical of the season with 6:05 to play. “That was my first one in I don’t know how long,” Dixon said. “I congratulated them on that. There was no bad language. I’ll be sure to pass that onto my mom.” Gardner made both free throws, and after a 3-pointer by Patterson, he sank two more from the line to give Marquette a 67-53 lead with 5:45 remaining.

Kilicli’s 25 good enough for WVU MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Deniz Kilicli scored a career-high 25 points as West Virginia held off a formidable comeback by Texas Tech for a 66-64 victory Saturday. A potential game-winning shot by the Red Raiders’ Josh Gray hit the front of the rim at the buzzer. Gray’s shot came from about 23 feet out after he took the ball inbounds from a teammate three-quarters of the court away. The Mountaineers (13-12, 6-6 Big 12 Conference) were comfortably ahead 61-53 with 3:19 left, but Texas Tech (9-14, 2-10) made three 3-point shots in a span of 2:45 in an attempt to snap what is now a six-game losing streak. Kilicli’s point total surpassed his 22-point effort against Providence on Feb. 5, 2012. He was 9 of 11 from the floor after shooting at 50 percent over his previous four games. Eron Harris had 15 points for West Virginia. It was his ninth double-figures effort since being inserted into the starting lineup by coach Bob Huggins 10 games ago.

Texas Tech had four players in double figures. Sixth-man Jaye Crockett had a double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds) before fouling out. Dusty Hannahs, who was 4 of 8 behind the 3-point stripe, had 12 points, Jamal Williams 11 and Jordan Tolbert 10. Dejan Kravic and Tolbert also fouled out for the Red Raiders. It was the third sweep of a Big 12 team in West Virginia’s inaugural season after coming over from the Big East. Earlier, the Mountaineers had knocked off Texas and TCU twice. West Virginia’s six victories have come against the bottom three teams in the 10-team league. West Virginia seemed to be cruising along, ahead by eight with 3:19 to go. But Texas Tech interim coach Chris Walker and his Red Raiders had other ideas. Not only had they lost five in a row, but nine of their last 10 games. Eight of the nine setbacks had come by double figures. Crockett was 7 of 12 from the floor and hauled down six offensive boards.

Beaver tops Fayette women in semis By the Herald-Standard

Penn State Beaver turned a 334-34 halftime tie into an 84-65 rout over Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, in the semifinals of the Penn State University Athletic Conference Saturday. The winners out-scored the local five, 50-31 in the second half, to win going away. Penn State Beaver moves on to today’s PSUAC women’s championship game, while the Lady Roaring Lions come home to prepare for the USCAA National Championship Tournament later this month. Beaver had five players score in double figures, led by Hayden Kimbrough’s 26. Fayette also had five players in double figures, including a team-high 17 off the bench from Tara Neely. Caitlin Wontroba scored 13, Shannon Flament, Kaitlyn Novak added 11 and Kasey Ruble 10. California (Pa.) 79, Lock Haven 62 — Stephanie Michael poured in 24 points to lead the Vulcans to this PSAC win at Lock Haven. The Cal women improved to 16-7 overall and 12-7 in PSAC games, while Lock Haven fell to 7-16, 4-15.

Men’s basketball California (Pa.) 79, Lock Haven 65 — The Cal men earned a sweep over Lock Haven, with Questin Harding leading the way with 26 points.

Cal improved to 10-13 overall and 9-10 in PSAC games, while Lock Haven fell to 5-17, 3-16).

Wrestling Waynesburg University captured the PAC wrestling championship Friday at Thiel College in Greenville. The Yellow Jackets scored 116 points, 10 more than Thiel. Washington & Jeferson finished third with 67 points. Four Waynesburg wrestlers were crowned conference champs, led by senior Alex Crown, who won his fourth PAC championship in as many years. His newest title came at 133 pounds, after claiming the 125-pound title the last three seasons. Other Waynesburg champs were junior Anthony Bonaventura (174), who also was named Most Outstanding Wrestler. Waynesburg coach Ron Headlee was named the conference’s coach of the year.

Projections have Pirates finishing the same as 2012 By John Perrotto For the Herald-Standard

The Pirates’ 79-83 record last season might not seem like much to most organizations. However, it represented their most wins since 1992, the last time they qualified for the postseason — or even had a winning record. Will the Pirates build on that momentum and finally end their streak of 20 consecutive losing seasons this year? Or will they fall back? Baseball Prospectus’ PECOTA forecast system predicts the Pirates to stay same, projecting Pittsburgh to finish with the same 79-83 mark in 2013. According to BP, the Pirates will tie Milwaukee for third place in the National League Central, finishing 10 games behind Cincinnati (89-73) and four games back of St. Louis (83-79). The Chicago Cubs are tabbed for last place in the fiveteam division, trailing the Pirates by only one game with a 78-84 mark. BP also projects Washington to win the NL East and the Los Angeles Dodgers to capture the NL West, with San Francisco and St. Louis as the wild cards. In the American League, BP’s

Freeney not returning INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts said Friday they will not re-sign former league sacks champion Dwight Freeney or oft-injured receiver Austin Collie. Both will become unrestricted free agents next month. Collie just couldn’t stay healthy. He wound up on season-ending injured reserve in September with a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee and there were continual concerns about a series of concussions he had.

Yorko Continued from C1

“We did a good job on the boards, especially in the second half,” Hildebrand said. “We kept subbing on offense and defense late in the game.” Both teams started slow in the fourth quarter, too, until Katie Shaffer hit a short jumper to extend the Lady Rockets’ lead to 22-19 with 4:30 left in the game. The Lady Rockets outscored the Lady Warriors, 7-6. down the stretch, fueled by Yorko’s free throws. Jefferson-Morgan will face Serra Catholic in the opening round on Wednesday.


3-stroke advantage

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bill Haas had another bogey-free round at Riviera on Saturday for a 7-under 64 — the best round of the day by three shots — that gave him a three-stroke lead going into the final round of the Northern Trust Open. On a warm afternoon off Sunset Boulevard that made the greens even faster, Haas turned in a remarkable score. The key was a seven-hole stretch in the middle of his round that he played in 6-under par, including a 60-foot pitch that dropped for eagle on the scary par-4 10th hole. He was at 12-under 201 and will try to become only the eighth back-to-back winner in the 76-year history of this tournament. All he cares about Sunday is winning. “It’s very difficult in this game to just pull away from the rest of the field,” Haas said. “You’ve only seen a few guys ever really do that, and those are guys like Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson. So I think I’ve just got to stay in the moment, don’t let my emotions get the best of me.” John Merrick bogeyed the 18th hole for a 70 and joined Simpson and Schwartzel at 9-under 204. Luke Donald overcame a sloppy start — three bogeys in a six-hole stretch — with four birdies on the back nine to salvage a 70 that put him four shots behind, along with Fredrik Jacobson (72). Mickelson was hopeful of making a move and instead went the other direction. He missed three par putts of about 6 feet on the front nine and had a 72, putting him nine shots behind. Ernie Els also dropped shots early and dropped out of the hunt with a 73.

mound until at least mid-March, which means he will begin the season on the disabled list. The tentative target date for Liriano to join the Pirates’ starting rotation is early May. Once Liriano is healthy, he will be added to a rotation that includes A.J. Burnett, James McDonald, Jeff Karstens and lefty Wandy Rodriguez. One of

three pitchers is likely to begin the season as the fifth starter: rookie Kyle McPherson or lefties Jeff Locke and Jonathan Sanchez. Liriano claims he was injured while slapping a door in his home in the Dominican Republic in an effort to playfully startle his children. “It’s frustrating, but I’m

just happy to have a job after everything that happened at Christmas,” Liriano said. “I was worried I might not have a job this season. I am thankful the Pirates signed me.” nnn Right-hander Charlie Morton, who had Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last June, has progressed to throwing 25 pitches off the mound in his bullpen sessions as part of his rehab. Morton is only throwing fastballs when he works off a mound, but has been using his breaking pitches in flat-ground throwing sessions. The Pirates are hopeful Morton will be ready to join the major-league rotation sometime in June. nnn Right-hander Gerrit Cole, considered the Pirates’ top prospect, is expected to start some games early in the exhibition season, though he is ticketed to begin the regular season at Class AAA Indianapolis. The first overall pick in the 2011 amateur draft was also in major-league camp last season, but pitched only one inning of an intrasquad game before being reassigned to minorleague camp.

J-M boys outmatched by Prexies in 76-32 defeat By Stephen Flinn For the Herald-Standard

COLLIER TWP. — JeffersonMorgan was outmatched in Saturday’s WPIAL boys Class AA preliminary round playoff game and lost to high-powered Washington, 76-32, at Chartiers Valley High School. “This is three years in a row in making the playoffs, so this was a big step for us,” Jefferson-Morgan head coach Chris Niemiec said. “We’re the smallest public school in Double A, so we knew we were going to be outmatched no matter who we played today.” Washington shot well from the start and outscored the Rockets, 28-5, in the first quarter, led by 14 points, including three quick 3-pointers from Jaylin Kelly. “We went zone at first and

hoped they would miss their shots, but they came out and made three 3’s and we were forced to play their game,” Niemiec said. “Once that happened, we just didn’t have the firepower to keep up with them.” The Prexies slowed down in the second quarter but still scored twice as many points as the Rockets and took a 44-13 lead into the break. “I told the team at halftime that the only thing they can take away from this game is their effort. They don’t want to leave this game with any regrets,” Niemiec said. “I said If you don’t give everything you have for the next two quarters, you’re never gong to forget that.” The Rockets found a groove in the third quarter, their best of the game, and scored 17

points but still trailed 67-38 after three quarters. “My kids played tough, they played hard, and they never gave up,” Niemiec said. “I think we showed in the second half that we weren’t giving up. I thought they responded in the second half.” Washington had three players in double figures, led by Josh Wise’s 19. Jaylin Kelly scored 17 and Jordan Drew added 13. Rece Henneman led the Rockets with 10 points. Travis Taylor added nine and Jordan Dicks had eight. “At the beginning of the year I didn’t really know what I had,” Niemiec said. “I thought our three seniors, Travis Taylor, Jordan Dicks, and Dom Cage, kind of gave us a tough edge that we needed playing for a smaller school. We’re going to miss them next year.”

Quigley rolls past Lady Trojans Cal’s McMasters scores 1,000th point By Aaron Thompson For the Herald-Standard

MCMURRAY — California senior Courtnee McMasters scored 18 points to surpass the 1,000-point mark for her career, but it wasn’t enough as fourth-seeded Quigley rolled past the Lady Trojans, 81-38, Saturday afternoon in a WPIAL girls Class A first round playoff game played at Peters Twp. High School. The loss wraps up California’s season at 14-8 overall. Meanwhile, the Lady Spartans improve to 17-5 overall and advance to the quarterfinals to face St. Joseph, who upset Avella, 45-30, on Saturday afternoon. The Lady Spartans came out on fire from the opening tip-off, scoring the first eight points in a little over just two minutes time. Four of those points came off back-to-back baskets from Spartans sophomore Kaitlyn Smith. California head coach Chris Minerd immediately called timeout to try to stop the early run. “Quigley is a good team,” Minerd said. “They made a lot of jump shots around the basket. That’s a sign of a really good team. We were missing some easy layups. I think that was a little bit of nerves.”

The Lady Trojans responded with baskets from McMasters and sophomore Brooke Clements to cut the deficit to 8-4. The Lady Trojans remained within striking distance for the remainder of the quarter, trailing 19-12 at the end of eight minutes. Things started to unravel quickly in the second quarter and the rout was on. Quigley, who also beat California in the playoffs in the 2008-09 season, outscored the Lady Trojans 28-4 in the quarter and pushed its lead to 47-16 at the contest’s midway point. From that point the victory was never in doubt for the hotshooting Spartans. However, there still was the little matter

of 1,000 career points for McMasters. The senior guard, who scored a mind-boggling 56 points against Mapletown a few weeks back, garnered a lot of attention from the Section 1-A champion Lady Spartans. McMasters eclipsed the mark by making two free throws at the 2:56 mark in the third quarter. “I was happy for Courtnee,” Minerd said. “I’ve coached her for six years now. It was big for the program to have someone score 1,000 points.” McMasters became only the second Lady Trojans player to surpass 1,000 points in her career. The first was all-time leading scorer Traci Marcolini. Marcolini scored 1,224 points while playing for California in the 1990s. The Lady Spartans rounded out the contest by outscoring California 14-9 in the third period, before using a 20-13 fourth-quarter advantage to round out the score. Quigley used a balanced attack with four players in double figures. Smith led the group with 18 points, while her sister Gabrielle Smith totaled 12 points. Junior Kristin Jackson tallied 15 points, while senior Morgan Dillon chipped in 14 points for Quigley, who avoided being bounced from the playoffs in the first round for the third straight season. Minerd is optimistic about the state of the program moving forward, citing the 14 wins as a nice step for the program.



Brentwood holds on, upsets Trojans, 56-50 Kish’s double-double leads Spartans By Aaron Thompson For the Herald-Standard

MCMURRAY — Michael Kish scored a team-high 21 points and pulled down a whopping 24 rebounds as Brentwood held on to upset Section 5-AA champion California, 56-50, Saturday in a WPIAL boys Class AA preliminary round playoff game at Peters Twp. High School. Veteran California head coach Phil Pergola knew that his squad would have its hands full with the taller Spartans lineup. “Today was a tough loss,” he said. “I thought we played pretty hard for the disadvantage inside. We got outrebounded and left a lot of points out there. We had chances, more than enough.” Brentwood led the entire contest. However, the two teams played a backand-forth contest, with the biggest Spartans’ lead being eight on three occasions in the second quarter before the Trojans cut it to 27-22 at the half. The teams traded the first eight scores of the third quarter before California closed the margin to 35-34 on a three-point play — the old fashioned way — by senior Brian Fisher. The Spartans quickly answered right back with a layup by Troy Elphinstone and then a 3-pointer by Jason Pilarski, who surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career early in the third quarter. Those baskets gave Brentwood a 40-34 advantage late in the third quarter before California (18-4) again closed to Fisher added a layup to close the pe- within two points when junior Demitri riod’s scoring and cut the Brentwood Clements scored to make it 42-40 early lead to 40-36. in the fourth.

Back-to-back baskets for the Trojans did push the deficit to just one at 51-50 with 1:43 to play. Unfortunately for California, that was as close as it would get, failing to score again. Brentwood Dave Rafferty went on a 6-0 run to close the game after Fisher fouled out at the 1:26 mark. Fisher scored 17 of his game-high 24 points in the second half. The loss marked the second-straight season in which the Trojans lost in the preliminary round, but Huffman doesn’t think that diminished the Trojans’ season. “I think we exceeded expectations,” Huffman said. “Free throws hurt us today. We have been working on them. I think we get in the game and get worn back with a three-point play to push it out by only using six or seven players. I didn’t expect us to win the section this to 45-40. It was about this time that free throws year, and we did. Today, they hurt us became a problem for the Trojans. inside.”

Burrell’s size, experience too much for Bulldogs By Adam Brewer For the Herald-Standard

IMPERIAL — The Beth-Center boys basketball squad couldn’t muster a preliminary round upset, as the Bulldogs fell to Burrell, 64-35, in a WPIAL boys Class AA preliminary round playoff game at West Allegheny High School on Saturday. The Bulldogs (10-12) gave up a size and experience advantage, and the Buccaneers (16-6) exploited the disadvantage and was a force on the glass and with their full-court press defense. “They put more pressure on us then we expected from watching their film,” Beth-Center coach Gary Amos said.

“They were quicker and their height was a disadvantage for us. We told them all this week that we had to box out and get some boards. They got a lot of offensive rebounds and transition points to get them going early on.” After Burrell collected the first three points of the contest, B-C’s Ryan Beyer scored the first hoop for the Bulldogs in transition. The Buccaneers then ended the first quarter on a 10-3 run to take a 13-5 lead at the end of one. In the second quarter, Burrell increased its lead and was harassing Beth-Center’s offense with pressure for steals and easy baskets. The Buccaneers

held a commanding 21-9 scoring edge in the second and was up 34-14 at intermission. The Bulldogs traded baskets with the Bucs to start the third quarter, but Burrell put the game out of reach with 15 of the final 17 points in the quarter. “We knew we had to take care of the ball and slow the game down,” Amos said. “In the first half our defense only allowed three baskets in our half-court set, but second chance points and fastbreak points were in their favor in the third quarter.” B-C managed a 15-11 scoring advantage in the final period, but it was too little, too late for the Bulldogs.

Burrell had three players in doublefigures, led by Cole Bush’s doubledouble of 23 points and 11 rebounds. Alex White scored 17 and Pete Spagnolo added 11. Dean Holt was the high scorer for B-C with 11 points, while Adam Walters tallied 10 points off the bench and Zach Miller collected nine points. “We have to continue to build and take the positives out of this season,” Amos said. “Hopefully this will be our launching point and we can build this program. We are excited about the future and we have some good pieces coming back. I hope making the playoffs will be a yearly thing for us.”

Cornell upsets Lady Mikes, West Greene girls 61-56, in Class A first round advance in Class A IMPERIAL — The Carmichaels girls basketball team couldn’t get any flow on offense in the second half, as Cornell held a 40-27 scoring advantage in the final 16 minutes, en route to a 61-56 upset victory Saturday in the first round of the WPIAL girls Class A playoffs at West Allegheny High School. This marks the ninth consecutive year that the Lady Mikes (19-4) have made the postseason, but also the ninthstraight season that they failed to get out of the first round. “It was possession basketball down the stretch, and they were able to put together some quality possessions late in the game,” Carmichaels coach Jim Lane said. “We couldn’t make the defensive stops and I think we left some points out there on the court. They went to a manto-man defense in the second half and it took us awhile to adapt to it.” The Lady Raiders (12-10)

will play North Catholic next Saturday in the quarterfinals. Carmichaels held an 8-point lead at halftime, but Cornell started the third quarter with a 13-2 run that gave it a threepoint lead. The Lady Mikes then countered with six straight points and maintained a onepoint lead the rest of the quarter. In the fourth quarter, the teams traded baskets and Carmichaels held its last lead of the game at 48-47 after two free throws from Amanda Brown with 3:58 left. The Lady Raiders then took the lead for good after a free throw, an inside hoop and then a critical 3-pointer by Dominique Robinson to give them a 53-50 edge. Every time the Lady Mikes got close, Cornell responded with either a basket or points from the foul line to hold onto the lead and to secure the upset. Mason DePetro led all scorers with 28 points for the Lady Raiders, while Nicole Byron and Taylor Davis added 11 points apiece. “DePetro is a very good player,” Lane said. “We knew she could drive to the rim and also shoot the ball from the perimeter. We slowed her down

at times in the game, but her teammates helped her out with offensive rebounding and putback baskets. In a close game, rebounding and extending possessions are critical.” Brown ended with a teamhigh 19 points for Carmichaels, while Caroline Cree scored 14 and Morgan Berardi ended her sensational career with the Lady Mikes with 11 points. After Carmichaels scored an early 3-pointer by Cree in the opening minutes of the game, Cornell rallied with eight straight points by DePetro. The Lady Mikes countered with an 11-3 run to finish off the opening quarter and held a 14-11 lead at the end of one. In the second quarter, the Lady Raiders scored the opening five points before the Lady Mikes rallied with a 14-5 run to end the first half. “We are disappointed in the outcome today, but I’m really proud of this team,” Lane said. “These seniors have given everything to this program and they will be missed. They have 62 wins in the last four years, and those four seniors deserve all the credit. I hate to see them go out this way, but they showed tremendous heart this season.”

Swimmers fare well in Section 5-AA meet

Swimmers from Laurel Highlands and Uniontown capped a busy — and successful — week Friday at the Section 5-AA championships hosted by Elizabeth-Forward. While the host team swept the top spot in the team standings, the Belle Vernon boys and Uniontown girls finished second. The Filies won the 200

medley relay as well as the200 freestyle relay, and Emily Yarish swam a school-record time of 1:14.41 in winning the 200 IM. Laurel Highlands’ Justin Kostelnik, Yarish and Mackenzie Robatin, Brooke Mansberry, Logan Knoyer, Lucas Thomas, and Uniontown’s Elizabeth Klingensmith all had first-place finishes.

Win prelim round game for 2nd year in a row By Adam Brewer For the Herald-Standard

IMPERIAL — For the second consecutive year, the West Greene girls basketball team opened up the WPIAL girls Class A playoffs with a preliminary round victory, courtesy of a 50-26 triumph over Clairton Saturday afternoon at West Allegheny High School. The win for the Lady Pioneers (13-9) is only the second postseason victory in school’s history, with the first one being against Frazier a year ago in the preliminary round. “Success in the playoffs is a huge thing for this program,” West Greene coach Jordan Watson said. “Prior to last year, the last time we were in the postseason was in 1999. Last year, it was huge for us just to make the playoffs. This time around we were confident and we played our game.” West Greene will now play top-seeded Vincentian Academy on Wednesday, with the site and time to be determined. In a tough, physical contest, the Lady Pioneers were led by its two post players, Madison and Alyssa Raber. Both Raber twins collected a doubledouble, as Madison compiled a game-high 25 points and 15 rebounds, while Alyssa added 13 points and 14 boards. “It’s pretty awesome to get another playoff win,” Madison Raber said. “It’s something that never has been done. I think

my scoring has really improved this season, but we have been playing as a team these last couple of games. It’s a total team effort.” After the Lady Bears (7-14) took an early 3-0 lead, West Greene grabbed three quick baskets to take a 6-3 lead. Clairton’s Kamara Townes hit the only 3-pointer of the first half to knot things up at 6-6, but the Lady Pioneers ended the first quarter with a 5-2 run. Madison Raber scored eight of the 10 points for West Greene in the second quarter, and the Lady Pioneers led 21-14 at halftime. “We have played an aggressive style all year round,” Madison Raber said. “We knew we had to continue to play that style in the playoffs. We are all about defense and rebounding. If you are good at those two things, then you will win a lot of games.” Leading 25-19 in opening minutes of the third period, West Greene tallied 10 straight points and carried a 36-21 lead into the final eight minutes of play. After the two teams exchange points to the start the fourth quarter, the Lady Pioneers pulled away with 12 straight points to secure the preliminary round win. Clairton was led by Justice Hall (10) and Townes (eight), while West Greene’s other notable scorer was Emily Courtwright with eight points. “We had to stay within ourselves,” Watson said. “We couldn’t force quick shots or be lazy on defense. The only way that we can win is by playing defense and rebounding. Clairton had a couple of shooters and I’m proud that we held them to only 26 points.”



Maples advance with 49-29 win over Leechburg First boys basketball playoff win since 1972 By Stephen Flinn For the Herald-Standard

COLLIER TWP. — Mapletown won its first boys basketball playoff game since 1972 by pulling away from Leechburg in the fourth quarter for a 49-29 win Friday night in the WPIAL Class A preliminary round game at Chartiers Valley High School. “I don’t know when the last time we won a playoff game. That’s how long it’s been,” said Mapletown second-year head coach Craig Hoone. “Just going to the playoffs isn’t good enough. We plan on winning.” Hoone credited his players in maturing as the season went on and coming together in the playoff win. “The kids have done a wonderful job just learning and doing what we asked them to do.” “This was a culmination of everything we’ve tried to do all year,” Hoone said. “This was probably our best overall game all year.” The Blue Devils (8-13) pressed full court the entire game, but could not rattle the smaller but quicker Maples (7-16). Hoone credited his players’ poise in handling the constant pressure. “We handled their press really well. We were tremendously mature. We were calm, cool, and collected,” Hoone said. “Once we got the ball down the floor, we didn’t rush it. We found the openings, pulled it back out, and ran through our offensive sets.” Mapletown was led by junior guard Kevin Ridgley, who scored 22 points, including four 3-pointers. “Kevin (Ridgley) has matured over the last two weeks more than anyone I’ve ever seen,” Hoone said. “When I gave him the captain’s spot, he took it personally.” Ridgley only scored two points in the first quarter, but heated up in the second quarter by hitting two 3-pointers as the Maples took a 20-16 lead at half. He hit two more 3-pointers in the third quarter and scored 14 points after the break to fuel the Maples’ second-half breakout. “I came out shooting a lot and I was finding my stroke. This was a good game for us. It was a team effort by everyone tonight,” Ridgley said. “This was a nice reward for all the running and hard work we put in this season. It paid off tonight. Winning a playoff game was outstanding. That’s all I can say. It was outstanding.” Sophomore guard Benjamin Boone, junior guard Dereck Riggleman, and junior forward Dana White each added nine points for the Maples. Leechburg was led by senior center Chris Swank, who scored 15 points. He scored all eight of the Blue Devils’ points in the first quarter and scored 12 of the team’s 16 first-half points. He only scored three points in the third quarter though, and was held scoreless in the fourth. The Maples led at the end of every quarter. As they pulled away late in the game they took the air out of the ball by taking their time on offense to ice the game. They held the Blue Devils to four points in the fourth quarter. Mapletown advances to play top-seeded Lincoln Park on Tuesday at a yet-to-be determined site.

Lady Colonials ousted from Class AAAA playoffs AG girls lose to Franklin Regional, 60-32 By Les Harvath For the Herald-Standard

HARRISON CITY — Aretha Franklin’s name does not appear on the Albert Gallatin Lady Colonials basketball roster, but her spirit is alive and well. Despite a 60-32 WPIAL Class AAAA preliminary-round setback at the hands of Franklin Regional in Albert Gallatin’s first playoff appearance in 10 seasons, if they did nothing else this season, the Lady Colonials earned respect, coach Dawn Spence said. After winning one, two, and seven games in Spence’s first three seasons, the Lady Colonials eclipsed that total this year, finishing their season with an 11-12 record. “Our players were very excited to make it to the playoffs,” Spence added. “Four years ago we said this was our goal and we’ve been working towards that goal of making the playoffs. They realize the hard work has paid off, but we still have a lot of work to do. Coming into this game we focused on doing what we had to do and blocked out all the noise of the playoff atmosphere. Now that we’ve been here, we know what to expect. We have a strong nucleus coming back next year and we’ll build on this experience.” Trailing 1-0, Courtney Haines, who took game scoring honors with 14 points, including eight in the fourth quarter, put back an offensive rebound to give Albert Gallatin its only lead of the night, 2-1, at 6:11 of the opening period. Haines’ 3-pointer two minutes later narrowed the Lady Panthers’ lead to one point at 6-5, but Franklin Regional scored the quarter’s final eight points to lead 14-5 after the initial eight fast-paced minutes of play, in a game played at Penn Trafford. Franklin Regional (11-12) outscored Albert Gallatin 16-6 in the second quarter for a 30-11 lead at the half. In the first half, Albert Gallatin turned the ball over an uncharacteristic 15 times, Spence noted. “We’ve been averaging that many turnovers in our last four-or-five games,” she said, “and the game’s

patience on offense and we learned to take advantage of more opportunities offensively and not waste those chances. In prior years and even early this season we tended to rush to try to keep up with the tempo, but we learned to be more patient. We have a better understanding of recognizing when we are able to push the ball up court and when we have to slow it down.” Trailing by 19 at the half, Spence’s instructions were simple: “’We’re not out of it. ‘I told them we could either go out and play, or we could lay down.’ We went out and played. We had some good spurts in the second half but we couldn’t sustain it. We have to be more consistent.” That consistency — or lack of same — was evident offensively as the Lady Colonials were constantly denied a second shot following a miss. On the other end of the floor, Franklin Regional was getting second and third shots. “We weren’t boxing out defensively,” Spence said, “and we spent too much time standing around and watching. But these are valuable lessons we are taking with us.” Prior to the second half, Spence kept her Lady Colonials in the locker room until the teams took the floor for the third quarter. “We were talking,” she said, smiling, “and at that time it was more important to talk instead of coming out for the warm-ups.” Franklin Regional, however, took advantage of its pre-third quarter warmup time, outscoring Albert Gallatin 19-5 in the period, to take a 49-16 lead into the final quarter. In that final period, Haines took charge of the offense, but it was too little, too late. “Courtney has been our leading scorer all season,” Spence added. “She’s a confident player. She shoots well and she can take it to the hoop. We’ll miss her next year.” While Haines was the only AG player to reach double figures, Franklin Regional’s bench moved the Lady PanJoel Brewton | Herald-Standard thers into the Class AAAA first round Albert Gallatin’s Courtney Haines (10) fights for the rebound during Friday’s WPIAL girls Tuesday against top-seed Mt.

outdoors Good food, fun anticipated at Ikes’ wild game dinner Uniontown chapter of the Izaak Walton League By Ben Moyer For the Herald-Standard

Sometimes you don’t need to be outside to enjoy the outdoors. As proof, on Tuesday evening, the Uniontown chapter of the Izaak Walton League will bring the best of the outdoors into the warm and inviting confines of AMVETS Post 103 in Hopwood at its annual Wild Game Dinner. The Uniontown “Ikes” have been hosting the event for years, and area hunters, fishermen and wild food enthusiasts look forward to the camaraderie and fine meal as a diversion from winter. It’s been a late-winter happening for so long that even Ikes’ game dinner chairman Jeff Valek doesn’t know for sure when it started. “I’ve been around here for 20 years and it was going strong when I came. This traditional community event may be approaching its 30- or even 40year anniversary,” Valek said. “We have so much fun with it that we just haven’t checked lately on its beginnings.” Valek said the group expects somewhere between 120 and 200 hungry diners on Tuesday night. Anyone who has attended over the years marvels at the quality, variety, and presentation of the game served at this celebration of local, wild food, and the privilege to go into the woods and fields to collect it. Guests will find deer, wild turkey, bear, pheasant,

groundhog, squirrel, rabbit, dove, duck, goose, plus some more exotic species gleaned on members’ far flung adventures, served in dozens of appetizing ways. Regulars enjoy making their selections from the buffet format, returning later to try any delicacies they couldn’t jam onto the plate on their first trip through. “Hudson’s Catering does a marvelous job for us,” Valek said. “We bring them the meat and they prepare it on-site and serve it in an amazing variety of ways. I’m the chairman and I don’t know what they’re going

to come up with, year to year.” To supply the meal, Izaak Walton members reserve and donate some of the bounty they bring home from hunts every year. Judging from the quantities served, the Ikes are skilled and persistent hunters. One mainstay that’s always on the menu is venison chili, served as an appetizer and made from the late “Doc” Bartlett’s recipe. A leading Ike in Uniontown for years, Doc Bartlett honed the dish especially for the annual event. Its preparation now has passed to the capable hands of Dave “Doc” Anderson. Though

mostly faithful to the original formula, Dave is rumored to have added some tweaks of his own. Following dinner, Valek and his banquet committee always present some outdoororiented entertainment. This year they’ve arranged an appearance by Joe Lathrop, a nationally known inspirational speaker, outdoor humorist and wildlife artist. “My objective is to be an entertaining speaker with humor, truth and a positive message,” Lathrop states on promotional materials.

“We are looking forward to Joe’s presentation,” Valek said. “Then we’ll close with prizes for some lucky guests. We really appreciate the support we get from a number of local businesses and merchants who make that possible.” Proceeds from the dinner are used to support Uniontown Izaak Walton’s projects to conserve fish, wildlife and their habitats, and to encourage youngsters to enjoy the outdoors. At their facility along Meadow Run in Farmington, the League hosts an annual trout fishing clinic for kids and presents a Hunter Education course in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Founded in 1929, The Izaak Walton League of America is one of the nation’s oldest and mostrespected conservation organizations. Its Uniontown chapter is one of 250 local chapters around the country. At the national level, the Izaak Walton League is a leader in wetlands conservation, clean energy advocacy, clean water, and in promoting personal participation in the outdoors through fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and other recreational pursuits. The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be bought at the door. For more information about the Uniontown Ikes’ Wild Game Dinner, call Jeff Valek at the Paul Sprowls Agency, Route 40 in Uniontown at (724) 437-9812. “We like it if folks call in advance, but it’s not necessary,” Valek said. “We’ll have plenty of food. Everyone who enjoys good company, wild game or has adventurous tastes is welcome.”

Pa. NASP state championships will be on March 8 Nearly 900 students from 30 schools will compete By Pennsylvania Game Commission

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Game Commission officials has announced 890 students from 30 schools throughout the state will compete in the National Archery in the Schools Program 2013 State Tournament on Friday, March 8, at the Penn State Multi-Sport Facility in University Park, Centre County. In mid-2010, the Game Commission began coordinating Pennsylvania’s NASP, which helps school districts in Pennsylvania meet physical education curriculum requirements of the state Department of Education, while at the same time introducing them to the world of competitive archery. The program has experienced considerable growth under the Game Commission’s guidance with 363 students competing in the tournament in 2010 and 494 in 2011. A breakdown of this year’s registered students is 410 females and 480

males. “At least 125 schools are involved in Pennsylvania NASP,” said Samantha Pedder, Game Commission outreach coordinator, who oversees NASP for the agency. In 2012, the agency received national recognition for having the greatest percentage increase in schools among the 48 states participating in NASP. “As a result of the overwhelming response from schools to participate in the tournament, we’re adding more shooting positions to the event’s range to accommodate everyone. Over the last three years, the range has nearly doubled in size, allowing 190 students to shoot at one time.” Studies conducted by the national NASP organization demonstrate NASP is a great introduction to the sport of archery, and that many students choose to pursue the sport outside of school. This year the PGC will again offer a “Shooter’s Expo” to provide participants a chance to explore other outdoorrelated activities, such as 3-D archery target shooting and turkey calling. “NASP fosters an interest in archery for these students, and we hope this continuing expo feature will introduce

students to different opportunities to expand their archery experience,” Pedder said. “We want to encourage them to keep shooting and to consider taking the next steps toward 3-D archery tournaments and, eventually, bowhunting, which are natural avenues for archers to hone and maintain their skills. The students also will have opportunities to talk with representatives from USA Archery’s Junior Olympic Archery Development program, United Bowhunters of Pennsylvania and Penn State’s Archery Team.” The competition will begin at 9 a.m., and consist of five flights followed by an awards presentation. Each archer will shoot one practice round of five arrows at 10 meters, and then shoot three scoring rounds of five arrows (15 arrows total) at 10 meters. After that, each archer will shoot one practice round of five arrows at 15 meters and then shoot three scoring rounds of five arrows (15 arrows total) at 15 meters. Archers will have two minutes to shoot each five-arrow round. At the awards ceremony, which will begin around 3:30 p.m., one team trophy will be awarded to each of the

Goodell’s Outdoors calendar salary released NEW YORK (AP) — Commissioner Roger Goodell was paid $29.49 million by NFL owners in 2011, nearly triple his compensation from the previous year.

J-M qualifies eight wrestlers at section tournament Rockets have four champions By Jonathan Guth

FALLOWFIELD TWP. — Jefferson-Morgan led the way with four champions and eight qualifiers at the Section 2-AA Individual Wrestling Championships on Saturday at Charleroi High School. The Rockets’ Dustin Conti remains undefeated at 31-0 after winning his second section championship at 170 pounds. Conti pinned West Greene’s Dalton Wildman in 1:01. “This is my last run, so I have to give it may all,” Conti said. “I have really been working on my offense at Young Guns.” Conti will enter the WPIAL Individual Championships as the No. 1 seed, but says it makes him more determined to work harder. “I know I have to work hard if I want to be the best,” Conti said. “Anything less that first at the WPIALs is unacceptable. I really made it a point between my sophomore and junior years to step it up.” Southmoreland’s Austin Griffiths won his second section title in as many years at 106 with a 4-0 decision over Jefferson-Morgan’s Brendan Howard (32-4). Griffiths ups his record to 26-2. “I felt pretty good with my performance today,” Griffiths said. “I had wrestled Brendan before, and I knew it would be a tough match. You have to be ready to go every

match.” Griffiths was the runner-up in the WPIAL finals last year, and would like to come home with the gold. “I know most of the guys I will be wrestling next week,” Griffiths said. “I feel good going into next week. I do want to avenge my second-place finish and win it all this year.” Jefferson-Morgan’s John Demaske (19-2) earned his third gold medal in three years at 126 pounds with a 4-0 decision over Bentworth’s Vince Vahaly (26-4). Demaske had a 2-0 lead in the third period, and was able to score a reversal as the match came to a close. “I knew he was going to come with legs and I just had to get out,” Demaske said. “I knew it would be a tough match. Getting this win was huge because of the seeding at the WPIAL tournament. I just stayed within myself, kept it close and didn’t do anything stupid. I just have to go out and do it next week.” The Scotties’ Jacob Beistel (285) pinned Bentworth’s Mason Shumaker in 2:33 for the gold. The freshman is eager for his first opportunity to wrestle in the WPIAL Individual Championships. “I think I wrestled well, but I need to work to score more on my feet,” Beistel said. “This is all new to me, so I am going to ask my teammates that have been there before for advice.” Beistel also credits assistant coach Steve Santia for pushing him in workouts. “I owe so much to him,” Beistel said. “He pushes

Bowlen, along with Zalar, goes to school at Carmichaels, but wrestles for Jefferson-Morgan. “It is nice to have a good friend to work out with, but all of my teammates are great,” Bowlen said. “Our goal is to win, and we will. I am very exciting for next week. My teammates are helping to prepare me for the tournament.” The Scotties’ Dakota Datz (11-4) won a 3-2 decision over Mount Pleasant’s Eli Holt (24-11) for the gold at 195 pounds. Datz earned his first section title. “It feels real good to win my first section title,” Datz said. “I am pleased, but there is a lot to work on. This gives me another week of preparation. I want to advance. I’ve been to the regional tournament twice, and I want to go back.” The Pioneers’ Cody Jacobs won his first section title at 220 with a 6-1 decision over Yough’s Tom Sever. Jacobs improves to 28-4. “I was second last year, and didn’t want that to happen again,” Jacobs said. “I am going to take it week-by-week, but I also look at the big picture, and would like to get back to states.” The Rockets’ Brendan Howard was second at 106. Teammate Jason Miller was second at 138 and Alexander Agnew was third at 132. J-M’s Jason Perkins was third at 182. Beth-Center’s Zach Swarrow was second at 113. Teammate Matt Riggle was also the runner-up at 152.

me really hard, and is just out of college, so he can work with us. He is just a great coach. We have an excellent staff with all kinds of experience. I am just going to take it one match at a time. I know it’s cliché, but no one match is more or less important than the other.” Beistel improves to 28-2. West Greene’s Wade Blackmon (27-9) won his first section title with a 1-0 decision over Bentworth’s Trevor Wood (29-11) at 132. Blackmon knew he had to be aggressive to avoid stalling calls, but also knew that he had to wrestle smart. “You don’t want to do anything stupid to open yourself up, but you also have to avoid a stalling call,” Blackmon said. “This is my first section title. I am looking forward to next week. This is the

best time of the year and where all the hard work pays off.” Blackmon knows the WPIAL tournament will be a challenge, and looks to advance to the Southwest Regional tournament. “It would be nice to get a high seed, but it is my goal to advance to the next round,” Blackmon said. “This is what we live for.” The Rockets’ Ryan Zalar (18-7) won his first section title with a 10-7 decision over Mount Pleasant’s Austin Mears (27-15). Zalar defeated Washington’s George Rogers, 1-0, and West Greene’s Matt Johnston, 5-4, to reach the finals. “I am so happy to win the section for the first time,” Zalar said. “It is also very gratifying after having surgery on my knee this year after tearing it

in the first tournament at Gateway. That was my second knee surgery. I’ve had it done on both knees. It was a setback. “I have great friends and practice partners to work with. I know I have to keep working. I also go to Young Guns wrestling club, and that really helps.” The Rockets’ Bill Bowlen (27-8) defeated Beth-Center’s Nico Brown, 3-2, in the finals at 160. The freshman is eager for the WPIAL tournament after winning his first title. “It is really satifsying to win, but especially at a tough weight like this,” Bowlen said. “I knew I had to be aggressive, but also not take any necessary chances. I also work out with Dustin Conti, which is very tough, but helps out a great deal.”

For diners who don’t know the difference between a chalupa and a chimichanga, descriptions of the dishes are printed on the last page of the menu, or customers can ask Patron’s staff, who are always friendly, Cuevas said. The 11 employees include Cuevas’s daughter, son-in-law and cousin. Many customers enjoy learning a few words of Spanish from the staff

and the menu, he said. One way to become familiar with the menu and select favorite dishes is to try the specialty dinner, which includes a chalupa, chile, a taco, an enchilada, a tamale, rice and beans. Reluctantly, Cuevas divulged that his favorite meals are the tilapia and shrimp dinner and carnitas en chile verde, which is pork tips with rice, salsa, beans and tortillas with a green tomatillo sauce. He said the sauce is flavorful and a bit spicy, not hot.

“But everything is good,” Cuevas said. Some of the most popular dishes on the menu are the chimichangas and the Durango burrito, a 12-inch burrito filled with chicken, beef and shrimp. “Everybody needs to try the chimichanga,” Cuevas said. “You will find the best service, the best food and, of course, the best margaritas here.” The bar features Mexican and domestic cocktails, mixed drinks and beers.

Fewer bees in US a threat to world’s almonds Third U.S. bank Colony collapse disorder main culprit TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) — In an almond orchard in California’s Central Valley, a bee inspector pried open a buzzing hive and pulled out a frame to see if it was at least two-thirds covered with bees. The question is: Will the almond seeds get set? It depends if you have enough of a workforce of bees.” That has growers concerned as nomadic beekeepers from across the country converge on the state, with their semitrucks, delivering billions of bees to the orchards for the annual pollination. Most almond trees depend on bees to transfer pollen from the flower of one tree variety to the flower of another variety before fertilization, which leads to the development of seeds. It’s a daunting task: California’s orchards provide about 80 percent of the global

almond supply. And with almond acreage increasing steadily in recent years, the bees must now pollinate 760,000 acres of trees. The number of bees needed is expected to increase as almond demand grows and orchards continue to expand. Bee brokers, beekeepers and almond growers around the state say there’s a shortage of healthy honeybees for this year’s pollination, especially after colony collapse disorder took a higher toll this winter. The disorder, in which honey bees suddenly disappear or die, wipes out thousands of colonies each year. The shortage has some growers scrambling for bees — even sub-performers — as trees are about to bloom, driving up bee prices again this year, to an all-time high of more than $200 per colony. Since it was recognized in 2006, colony collapse disorder has destroyed colonies at a rate of about 30 percent a year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

among investors and politicians over developments affecting the Japanese yen, which now trades near a three-year low. Japan is facing charges that it is trying first and foremost to lower the value of the yen to stimulate its economy and get the edge over other countries. If too many countries try to weaken their currencies for economic gain — sparking a so-called “currency war” — the fragile global recovery could be derailed. “We reiterate that excess volatility of financial flows and disorderly movements in exchange rates have adverse implications for economic and financial

stability,” the communique added — using the same language as a statement on the same subject made earlier this week by the Group of 7 leading economies. Neither statement singled out any country — including Japan — for criticism. Speaking at a news conference following the communique’s signing, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that all the G20 nations agreed that they need to focus on delivering a strong economic growth rather than “manipulating the markets.” International Monetary Fund director Christine Lagarde, dismissed concerns of a looming currency war, saying that she was witnessing “currency worries, not currency wars.”

A U.S. senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not allowed to comment publicly said that the group discussed the importance of avoiding loose talk concerning exchange rates — although this point did not make it into the communique. Several developing economies have recently criticized the U.S. program of quantitative easing for pushing up the value of their currencies. By buying up bonds, the U.S. Federal Reserve has also increased the amount of money in circulation. This has had the sideeffect of driving down the value of that currency relative to others. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke defended the policy in a speech at a meeting of G20 financial

chiefs with President Vladimir Putin on Friday. “Consistent with the Group of 7 statement, the United States is using domestic policy tools to advance domestic objectives and we believe that by strengthening the U.S. economy, we’re helping to strengthen the global economy as well,” he said. Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor at the Martin Smith School of Business at California State University, said it should come as no surprise that no country was singled out for criticism for movements in its currency. “Many countries including China, Japan and the United States all have issues related to exchange rates,” he said. “People in glass houses should not throw stones.”

fails this year

WASHINGTON (AP) — Regulators say they have closed a small bank in Chicago, bringing to three the number of U.S. bank failures this year following 51 closures in 2012. Bank closures also are off to a far slower start. Nine banks had failed by this time last year. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. on Friday seized Covenant Bank, which had about $58.4 million in assets and $54.2 million in deposits as of Dec. 31. Liberty Bank and Trust Co., based in New Orleans, agreed to assume all of Covenant Bank’s deposits and buy essentially all of the failed lender’s assets. The failure of Covenant Bank, which had a single banking branch, is expected to cost the deposit insurance fund $21.8 million. U.S. bank closures have been declining since they peaked in 2010 in the wake of the financial crisis and the Great Recession. In 2007 just three banks went under. That number jumped to 25 in 2008, after the financial meltdown, and ballooned to 140 in 2009. In 2010 regulators seized 157 banks, the most in any year since the savings and loan crisis two decades ago. The FDIC has said 2010 likely was the high-water mark for bank failures from the recession. They declined to a total of 92 in 2011. Last year bank failures slowed to 51, but that’s still more than normal. In a strong economy an average of only four or five banks close annually. The sharply reduced pace of closings shows sustained improvement. From 2008 through 2011, bank failures cost the deposit insurance fund an estimated $88 billion, and the fund fell into the red in 2009. But with failures slowing, the fund’s balance turned positive in the second quarter of 2011. By Sept. 30 of this year it stood at $25.2 billion, up from $22.7 billion at the end of June. The FDIC expects bank failures from 2012 through 2016 to cost $10 billion.

As Russia’s Siluanov told reporters after the meeting, the G20 nations share “an understanding” of Japan’s current policies aimed at getting its economy motoring again after a two-decade bout of stagnation. “We agreed that it was a domestic matter of that country,” he said. The Moscow meeting also ended with a pledge to crack down on tax avoidance by multinational companies. Google, Amazon and Starbucks have recently come under criticism from countries including France, the U.K. and Germany for shifting profits generated in one country to another to pay less tax. In their communique, the G20 finance ministers said they were determined to take “necessary collective actions” to stop

the practice. The G20 ministers also decided to defer setting any new debt-cutting targets for its members. G20 members at a 2010 summit in Toronto committed to halve budget deficits by this year and it is now looking likely that some countries will fail on that commitment. The U.S. senior administration official said Saturday that, while the U.S. had met its commitment, G20 members decided not to sign up to any new tangible goals or targets in Saturday’s communique as they were anxious to depart from a “one-sizefits-all” approach. ——— Victoria Buravchenko in Moscow and Martin Crutsinger in Washington D.C. contributed to this report.

At Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus

‘CEO Conversations’ series set to start Morgan O’Brien, president and chief executive officer of Peoples Natural Gas, will be the first speaker of this year’s “CEO Conversations” in the Community Center Bird’s Nest Café at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday. The event is free and open to the public. O’Brien gradated from Robert Morris

University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in taxation. In February 2010, O’Brien became president and CEO of Peoples, which provides gas to homes and businesses in 16 western Pennsylvania counties. He serves on his alma mater’s board of trustees and the boards of many organizations, including the United

Way of Allegheny County and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s western Pennsylvania chapter. CEO Conversations allows students to listen and talk to key people in the local, regional and national business communities about business, entrepreneurship and leadership.

First Energy warns customers about scam Dealings of Legion of Christ detailed AKRON, Ohio – First Energy Corp. utilities, including West Penn Power, are warning customers about a scam involving a telephone caller posing as a utility company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made using a prepaid debit card such as a Green Dot card. Green Dot cards are not officially sanctioned by First Energy as a bill

payment method. First Energy has numerous bill payment options, including eBill electronic billing; paying with a credit card; the Equal Payment Plan in which uniform bill payments can be made to avoid seasonal fluctuation of payment amounts; paying by phone using First Energy’s automated phone system; paying in person at any authorized payment agent location for a fee and paying by mail.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Documents detailing the dubious fundraising practices of a disgraced Roman Catholic religious order called the Legion of Christ detail how the organization took control of a widow’s finances and persuaded her to bequeath it $60 million. The records released Friday in Rhode Island include the first-ever depositions of high-ranking Legion officials. They shed light on the inner workings

of a secretive congregation placed under Vatican receivership after the Holy See determined that its founder was a spiritual fraud who sexually abused his seminarians and fathered three children with two women. The documents had been kept under seal until The Associated Press, The New York Times, the National Catholic Reporter and The Providence Journal intervened, arguing that they were in the public interest.

SEC alleges insider trading Mexico hit with another bird flu outbreak ‘Risky bets’ placed just prior to H.J. Heinz acquisition WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators have alleged that a brokerage account in Switzerland was used for illegal insider trading ahead of the H.J. Heinz acquisition Thursday. The Securities and Exchange Commission obtained a court order Friday to freeze the account and prevent the assets from being moved. The account was used for trades placed Wednesday that netted $1.7 million after the deal was announced. The SEC says it doesn’t know the identity of the traders but said they “took risky bets” that Heinz’s stock price would increase. On Thursday, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and the Brazilian firm 3G announced they agreed to buy Heinz. Heinz’s stock rose nearly 20 percent after the announcement. The SEC is alleging that the traders must have known in advance about the pending transaction based on inside information. The traders bought call options to make a huge profit of roughly 1,700 percent after the acquisition was announced. Call options let investors place a bet on a stock without committing to buy the shares. Investors instead have the option to buy the shares later for a set price.

Agency: 582,000 chickens at seven farms affected MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s animal health agency says a bird flu outbreak at seven farms in central Mexico has affected as many as 582,000 chickens. The Agriculture Department says the number that will have to be slaughtered

has yet to be determined. An outbreak of the H7N3 bird flu virus in western Mexico in 2012 led to the slaughter of more than 22 million hens and caused price increases in chicken and egg products. It said tests were continuing to determine the exact strain of virus involved in the outbreak, but said it did not affect humans. Mexico’s nationwide flock amounts to 137 million birds.

More local beer lovers learning art, challenge of crafting cold ones BY NATALIE BRUZDA

“I love the feedback I get when I give my friends a gift and it’s something they enjoy.”

As a college student in Ohio, Greg Akins grew accustomed to the scent of beer wafting through his window from a nearby Budweiser plant. It’s now the same aroma that fills his Scottdale home when he’s brewing beer — a hobby that he took up two years ago. “I love the smell of it,” said Akins. “I lived in Columbus, Ohio — pretty close to the Budweiser brewery. It (my house) smells like that brewery does, all the time.” The aroma of his most recent beer — a stout, which can be compared commercially to a Guinness — filled his home in early January when he began the process of brewing a new batch. According to the American Homebrewers Association (AHA), a national organization that provides information about the homebrewing process, Akins is one of an estimated one million Americans who brew their own beer at home. The hobby was federally legalized in 1978 for the first time since prohibition made it illegal in 1919. Information on the AHA website indicates that the history of homebrewing can even be traced back to the dawn of agriculture. In colonial times, homebrewing was a common household practice, typically performed by women. According to the AHA, many of the nation’s founders, including George Washington, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, were homebrewers. Alabama and Mississippi are the only two states that have not yet legalized homebrewing, the AHA reports. “Homebrewing has become more popular I think

because of the availability of the ingredients, and the ability for people to learn how to do it,” Akins said. Locally, the Three Rivers Association of Serious Homebrewers (TRASH), provides opportunities for those who join. “I get to take my beer to those meetings and share my beer with the other brewers,” Akins said. “There are people that you know have tried a lot of different brews … and know what certain things should taste like. I get better quality feedback from them.” For Matt Lukowsky of Connellsville, beer brewing gives him the ability to experiment with a variety of different tastes. To him, it’s a more creative process than making wine, which is a hobby he took up about 12 years ago before homebrewing caught his eye. “I like good wine and good beer and I thought, well, it sounds like a lot of fun. It sounds creative, “ Lukowsky said. “I finally got up enough courage to try it, and I was pleased with the first batch I made.” Lukowsky said he hasn’t been

Directly above, Akins shows a hop that was given to him by friends for homebrewing. Akins has entered several brewing competitions but has said that he just enjoys making beer for his family and friends. At left, Akins pours hops into a stout homebrew. Akins uses household items he had prior to developing his homebrewing hobby, such as a pot used to cook turkey, to reduce costs. Akins spent around $200 on a kit, when he first started, and borrowed the rest of the equipment needed from friends.

Sisters channel Santa Cruz NEW YORK (AP) — Rodarte designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy grew up in sunny Santa Cruz, Calif., and for their fall collection, they’ve created clothes that evoke their seaside hometown. But perhaps only to them. “It’s really our own version of it,” Laura Mulleavy said backstage after Tuesday’s runway show in a downtown gallery space. The beachy feel came across most strongly in prints — especially a tiedye motif in silk satin, which appeared in a host of flowing gowns in pink, blue, red and black. There were even some Grateful Dead references in the mix — with the iconic Northern California band appearing via brilliant redrose embroidery on the fanciest dresses, along with Swarovski crystals. In the collection’s most unusual element, many of the tie-dye gowns were embellished with large, futuristic-looking collars and other attached pieces made of what the sisters call 3-D double-faced foam. That was less about Santa Cruz and more about a design

choice, explained Laura Mulleavy. “We wanted to build on some structure as a contrast, so a garment wasn’t all print,” she said. “Something minimal and modern.” Aside from the prints, which included a recurring acid-wash motif, there was basic black, too. The show opened with a look

combining two trends seen a lot this Fashion Week: a very roomy black suede trench coat, over black shorts. A leather version of the same large trench followed. There were also some very pretty monochromatic dresses: A nude silk embroidered dress with silk chiffon ruffles, to be worn only by the fairly confident .

LONDON (AP) — Severe-looking leather corsets, exaggerated shoulders, shades of muddy greens and gunmetal: Turkish designer Bora Aksu’s latest womenswear collection may feature lots of tough design elements, but his signature romantic style still shone through on the catwalk Friday. The London-based designer opened his London Fashion Week show with a series of ivory crocheted dresses worn with high, buttoned-up shirt collars — beautifully soft designs that had a

definite vintage flavor. All-leather ensembles of capes, bomber and cropped jackets and pencil skirts came next, but the delicate sensibility continued: the leather looked buttery soft, and the palette was muted and earthy. Later, models wore sweet babydoll dresses in clouds of light pleated chiffon, but the best pieces layered the contrasting textures in one outfit: a suede corset worn over an ethereal navy blouse, or a gunmetal leather dress under a billowing, sheer purple cape.

Maggie Smith: I haven’t seen ‘Downton’ NEW YORK (AP) — Millions of people have watched Maggie Smith on “Downton Abbey.” But she’s not one of them. The 78-year-old actress, who portrays Lady Grantham in the popular PBS series, told “60

what she takes from the role is “the delight of acting.” She has three Oscars, two Emmys and a Tony Award, but said the “Downton Abbey” role has given her more public recognition than anything in her career.

Relationship with immature man ill-advised Dear Annie: I have been in love with “Cliff” for four years. We bought a home together two years ago, but soon after, he became unemployed, angry and spiteful. I tried to tough it out, believing it would eventually get better, but when Cliff became verbally abusive, I took my two kids and left. I asked him if he wanted me to stay, and he said no, he didn’t think things would improve. We kept trying to fix the relationship, or at least I did. But Cliff was dating other women and lied to me about it, and the whole thing has become a hurtful mess. I still love Cliff, but don’t know whether I can trust him anymore.

Annie’s Mailbox My guilt over leaving him and his son to deal with the foreclosure on the house we bought together kills me. He won’t express any

Horoscope AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be careful, because some extravagant whims could gain control of your purse strings. Later, when it’s time to pay the bills, you’ll wish you had exercised greater control. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re in for a big surprise if you expect others to drop what they’re doing and cater to your desires. The only person you should depend on is you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Attempting to use honeyed words to manipulate another is likely to backfire. Any insincerity on your part will be immediately detected and disliked. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — A pal who is an expert at disappearing when the check is presented will try that ploy again. If you’re smart, you’ll ask for separate checks up front. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — To succeed, you need to make a concerted effort to clearly define your objectives — otherwise you could find yourself employing wishywashy tactics that don’t work. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You should take care not to confuse optimism with wishful thinking, because the results would be catastrophic. The former inspires and emboldens, while the latter merely dreams. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be

careful and don’t take what is told to you at face value. Someone might try to draw you into a joint endeavor for reasons that are more beneficial for him or her than they are for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — No one will have to tell you that partnerships have both advantages and disadvantages. You’ll need to figure out whether such an arrangement would be worthwhile to your cause. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If there is an important assignment that you need to delegate, make sure your instructions are clear about how to go about it and what results you expect. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s good to be helpful whenever you can, but don’t offer any suggestions or try to manage something for another if you don’t know a thing about it. Mind your own beeswax. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) — Be extremely selective about whom you go to for help and advice today. An ineffective counselor could cause more trouble by putting you onto a path of “nevernever” land. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When you choose, you can be a self-directed person who doesn’t waste time getting down to brass. Today, however, your rationalizing attitude might inhibit this.

anger, even though I can see his resentment. He also won’t address the lies. Is this a lost cause? Am I hoping for too much? — Love Struck in California Dear California: You could make excuses for Cliff’s terrible behavior by believing his job loss depressed him and he couldn’t cope. But that only underscores a certain level of immaturity and irresponsibility. When the going gets tough, Cliff lies and cheats. Life is filled with tough times, and your partner should be someone you can count on. Cliff doesn’t seem terribly interested in working on your marriage.

and your children. Professional counseling can help you work through this and move forward. Dear Annie: I recently lost my spouse and now attend a grief support group that has been very helpful. However, there are a couple of members of this group who monopolize the conversation for at least half of the time allotted for the total meeting, and worse, they repeat the same thing over and over again. We also have a new member who attends to support a friend whose husband died, but now we know all about her abusive childhood. Grief groups work well by sharing pain caused by the loss of a loved one. Members support

one another. This is not possible unless there is an open and caring interchange between members. Perhaps those members who are causing problems will see this. — Southern Griever Dear Southern: Most grief support groups include a moderator of some type, usually a trained counselor. Although a certain amount of off-topic discussion can be appropriate and healing, no one should monopolize the sessions so often that it prevents others from expressing themselves. If you feel that your support group is not fulfilling its purpose, please speak to the moderator. Another option, of course, is to find a different group.

Locate Washing Soda Dear Sara: Where can I find washing soda? — Janette, Indiana Dear Janette: Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda can usually be found in the laundry aisle of your grocery store; if it isn’t there, ask the manager to order it. You can check hardware stores, discount department stores, drugstores or health-food stores as well. You can also check for the closest retailer that sells it or call Arm and Hammer’s customer service department at (800) 5241328 to order it directly. nn nn nn

Dear Sara: Are there any other uses for those packets of ham glaze that come with a spiral cut ham? — Edie, email Dear Edie: You can use the glaze on pork, beef, seafood, chicken or vegetables. Many of the glaze packets contain sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and cardamom. These ingredients would work well for baked goods such as fruit crisps, quick breads or rolls, too. nn nn nn

Dear Sara: I’m always on the go after school with my kids. It’s cheerleading, ballgames, gymnastics, etc. Sometimes we’re not home until 9 p.m. While I know it’s best to sit down and eat together every night, it’s not always possible. Do you have any suggestions for some travel-friendly meals and snacks I can make, besides sandwiches? — T.L., Kentucky D e a r T. L . : W e ’ r e an active family, too. I pack extra snacks (fruit, popcorn, bagels, etc.) in my kids’ school lunches for them to eat after school and before heading out the door to their activities. In your situation, I’d pack a cooler, snack box/bin and/or a thermos. This will take some extra preparation, but it opens up a wide variety of foods for your family to eat. Most any meal/snack is portable and can be kept hot or cold. I would pack foods that are similar to what you’d pack for lunches, picnics or potlucks. Some examples of foods that can be kept hot in a thermos include pasta dishes, meatballs, chicken nuggets, Sloppy Joe meat, BBQ shredded beef, pork or chicken, soups, stews, meat/ poultry and potatoes or rice. Salads, cheeses, yogurt, cottage cheese, hardboiled eggs, deli meats, etc. can be kept cold in a cooler. As for snacks that don’t need to be kept hot or cold, tuna packs, rice cakes, cereal, trail mix, pretzels, raw or dried fruits and veggies, applesauce, nuts and graham crackers are a few. For more ideas that include healthy options, please see my lunch list ideas at frugalvillage. com/forums/foodkids/134225-mix-matchlunchbox-ideas.html. I’d also talk to other parents with kids in these activities. I’m sure they will have an idea or two. Maybe you can work out a plan where you group together and provide meals and snacks on specific assigned days/weeks to make things easier for all of you.

Well, it’s time for part 2 of the recent iPhone 5 debacle that I detailed in last week’s column. The phone arrived, was as described and looked brand spanking new. Also included were the new style of Apple earbuds, which actually fit properly in your ears and don’t fall out like the older design always did. They seem a lot more comfortable and fit my iPad’s jack as well. Apple has changed the design of the charging cable as well for the iPhone 5 and in place of the big connector, they have a tiny little connector now. One of the first things I did was look again on eBay and got another pair of connectors with a car charger as well for fourteen bucks! In the past, I’ve been able to use one of my many large-type connectors, but relying on just having one cable to charge my phone made me nervous. Now I have one plugged into my Macbook at the store where I teach guitar and

I just plug the phone into it and let it just top off the charge while I teach. I encourage anybody with any kind of electronic device that needs charging to get a spare cable. Back to my story. At some point after winning the iPhone on eBay, the horrible thought came to me that swapping the SIMM card was not going to be that easy. I’d been lulled into a false sense of security when we were on T-Mobile by the fact that the SIMM card always fit any phone you got from them. Although people (including Doren) had told me of bad experiences getting their new phones activated, the only time we did it was both my and my wife’s iPhone 4’s and it was seamless and trouble-free. BUT, as Doren told me via text, the iPhone 5 takes a micro SIMM card–much smaller than the 4S! I then looked online and all these people had posted remarks and videos about how to cut down your SIMM card to fit the new iPhone. All of

this sounded scary and just screamed TROUBLE. So I texted Bill Kridle, the super nice guy who sold us our phones and activated them for us. Although Bill was on vacation, he said to just visit the Verizon store and they would supply me with a micro SIMM card at no charge. This all sounded too good to be true and I wondered if it could really be that easy. I waited a few more days for my coughing and spluttering fits to subside. I feared trying to explain what I wanted to the Verizon people and ending up coughing and coughing. If you’ve had this, you’ll know exactly what I mean–I’m on my second bout of it in six weeks. Finally, I was ready to toddle off to Verizon. As I entered the store, three salespeople approached me, as it was almost empty. While holding up both phones, I tried to explain that I want the SIMM from one phone put in the other phone. The male among the three said, “CAN’T BE DONE”

and my blood pressure rose slightly. I then said, “Well, can I get a new SIMM for this phone, then?” and he replied that I could. I followed a nice lady named Mrs. Prinkey over to a long row of computers on a desk and she began the quite-lengthy procedure needed to program the new, tiny SIMM card. As I supplied all my details, I heard a male voice behind me threatening to bring the police in if Verizon didn’t stop charging his credit card each time he came in. He clamed down after a bit, but it was a slightly entertaining “meltdown” while I was waiting for my phone to be activated. At this point I ought to mention that before I left for the Verizon store, I backed up all my data from my iPhone 4S into iTunes in order to transfer it later to the iPhone 5. This puts texts, emails and everything you’ve saved back into the new phone. Finally, Mrs. Prinkey whipped out a tiny SIMM card and put it into a small

drawer-like thing on front of her computer. I guess it took all my data and put it on the new SIMM. She merely slipped it into the iPhone 5 and I was good to go. She also offered me a form of insurance that, as I hadn’t bought the phone from Verizon, would have made me deal personally with the insurance company. It was around ten bucks a month with a $148 deductible for each incident. The prospect of dealing with the insurance company on my own sounded too “iffy” for me, so I declined. She said, “No problem” and asked me to sign off with one of those horrible electronic pen things that I hate. At best, I get signatures that look like “Erin Schuze” and that’s if I’m lucky. Those of you who have used these will know exactly what I mean, although when Mrs. Schulze signs, it comes out as an immaculate copy of her normal writing. At this point, I’ll say ta tah until next week and part three of my iPhone 5 journey!

Consumer Reports

Low car payment can hurt you By the editors of Consumer Reports

With the average cost of a new vehicle now around $30,000, it’s no surprise that car loans are getting longer and longer, notes Consumer Reports. Some banks now offer car loans with payback terms that run for as long as eight years. While long-term loans translate into lower monthly payments, they can cost you more in several other ways. HIGHER INTEREST, HIGHER RISK A longer loan means higher interest costs. That’s because you’re making payments for a longer period of time, and longer loans often have higher rates. To find out how much more you might pay, staffers at the Consumer Reports Money Adviser newsletter calculated the difference between

48-month and 72-month loans on a $32,765 car, with a negotiated price of $30,520. The longer loan will cost you about $1,600 more, assuming a 10 percent down payment. If you put 0 percent down, the difference climbs to more than $1,800. And longer-term loans are more risky. That’s because cars depreciate over time, with the quickest loss in the early months. So unless you make a substantial down payment or have a highvalue trade-in, your new vehicle initially will lose value faster than you’re paying for it. Owing more than the car is worth is known as being upside down. At some point as you pay off the loan, you’ll no longer be upside down and will begin building equity in the vehicle. But

the longer the loan, the longer it takes for that to happen. If you decide to trade in the car during that upside-down period, you’ll probably get less than what you still owe on the loan. And the vehicle’s depreciated value is typically the maximum amount your insurer will pay you if your car is seriously damaged or stolen. If you’re within the upside-down period, that amount won’t be enough to pay off the remaining loan balance. THE CATCH WITH LEASES Another way people lower their monthly payments is by leasing. But if you think that makes leasing less costly, Consumer Reports suggests that you think again. The first thing you should understand about leases is that whether you

acquire the vehicle with a loan or a lease, you’re borrowing the entire value of the vehicle, minus any down payment or trade-in. And you’ll be charged monthly interest on that amount reduced by what you pay back along the way. There’s the rub. With leasing, instead of paying off the entire car, your payments are based only on the projected depreciation. That’s because, unlike with a loan, you’re not building equity in the vehicle, which you must return when the lease is over. So over a 48-month lease, for example, instead of paying off the entire net cost of the vehicle, you’d pay back only about half, which results in much lower monthly payments. And because you’d be paying back less, that leaves a greater amount subject to

a finance charge month after month. It’s true that you’ll lay out much less cash, but with a loan you get to keep the car. And if you take into account its value, the loan typically ends up costing less. The biggest saving grace for leasing is the sales tax break you get in most states compared with buying the car. In most states, leasing customers pay tax on the monthly payment instead of on the entire cost of the vehicle. But some of that benefit is offset because, unlike with a loan, the finance charges are taxed as well. In Illinois and some other states, lessees must pay sales tax on the full vehicle cost, just as if they had made a purchase. But only in a period of very low interest rates would the tax savings under a lease offset the higher finance charges.

The Animal Doctor

Are fish oils really good for pets? By Dr. Michael Fox

DEAR DR. FOX: I have no pets, but I really, really, really love animals, particularly kitties! You’ve made mention of using fish oils rich in the omega compounds. However, some media and concerned environmental groups talk of the depletion and pollution of global fisheries. Flaxseed and hempseed are processed to provide omega oil compounds 3, 6 and 9. Is there any harm in using a plant-based source instead of a fish or krill oil as you recommend? My other question is about toxoplasmosis, which can be found in pet cats, rats and ferrets. It is harmful to humans. An infection of toxoplasmosis can result in compromised cognitive function and other health problems. How can current and future pet owners reduce the risk of acquiring a toxoplasmosis infection? How can they check for it? — J.R.M., St. Louis DEAR J.R.M.: Nutritional science has shown that some people, like

most cats and probably many dogs, are unable to process or convert omega-3 fatty acids of plant origin into DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). These acids are essential for brain development, vision, immune system function and a host of other body functions. They also help balance inflammationcausing omega-6 fatty acids, which tend to be in excess in the human diet. For details, see my article about krill oil on my website, American consumers and their pets are facing a major nutritional deficiency and imbalance when it comes to these essential fatty acids. As a vegetarian, I rely on flax and several supplements, including DHA Algal-900 from Finest Nutrition and Nordic Naturals Algae Omega. For dogs and cats, I recommend Nordic Naturals fish oil or freerange, grass-fed beef, dairy or poultry, which is higher in omega-3s than products from conventionally raised and fed animals. A small amount

of canned sardine or mackerel can also provide some of these essential nutrients. Toxoplasmosis is diagnosable by alert epidemiologists and parasitologists, and it is treatable in patients not too damaged by these organisms. To best prevent toxoplasmosis, be careful when handling raw meat (or go vegetarian/vegan); wear gardening gloves when working in soil; outlaw people allowing their cats to roam free, becoming infected from killing and eating rodents; and avoid contact with feces when cleaning out the litter box. nn nn nn

DEAR DR. FOX: As a horse owner, I am bugged by all the vaccines being given to them. I agree with you that they can harm the horses’ immune systems. Now we have eastern equine encephalitis, which can infect humans, and West Nile virus, which can kill horses and people. What’s next? We never had these diseases when I was younger. What is going on? — A.R., East

Lansing, Mich. DEAR A.R: Your question is timely because health experts and a few political leaders are waking up to the consequences of climate change/global warming, which facilitates the spread of some insectborne diseases like the two that you mention. Wind currents and warmer temperatures help spread viruses across continents, as can infected migratory birds. We need to acknowledge the role of humans in helping spread these socalled emerging diseases like West Nile virus and the increasingly frequent influenza epidemics. Insect-borne diseases such as eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, epizootic hemorrhagic disease, the Schmallenberg virus, and a host of tick-borne diseases from Lyme disease to Rocky Mountain spotted fever might be reduced if we stopped using pesticides. This may seem counterintuitive, but biting insects quickly develop resistance to the pesticides while the bats,

birds and other creatures that consume them and help control their numbers get poisoned. The white nose syndrome fungal disease currently decimating bats may be a consequence of immune system impairment by pesticides. Ditto the fate of the honeybee and other beneficial insects. But the agrichemical industry does not want to hear any of this, and the drug and vaccine industries continue to profit from anthropogenic, man-made diseases. The solutions are seen as an economic threat to this establishment, but they should be regarded as an opportunity to serve the greater good and profit ethically.

LYNN, Mass. (AP) — Felicia Moore decided to write a children’s book as a way to fill her downtime, but when she learned her daughter had become the victim of bullying it became a mission. “I didn’t know where this book would go, I just wanted to do something for kids,” she said. It was her 14-year-old daughter, Janet Egbe, who suggested the book should be about bullying awareness. Once the book, a sing-along aimed

at 3- to 5-year-olds, was completed, Egbe penned a letter to OMG Girlz magazine in the hopes of getting some publicity for the story. Egbe was featured last summer as a talented tween for chasing after her dream to become an actress and was familiar with the magazine. In the letter, however, she revealed that the book was important to her because she had been a victim of bullying since she was eight years old.

Supreme Court’s ruling rekindles memories of a long-ago brutal crime BY ADAM GELLER AP National Writer

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — More than 21 years after she went to prison, Barbara Hernandez enters the cinderblock visitation chamber at the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in the turquoise blouse she keeps for special occasions. Her makeup is carefully applied but can’t hide age lines spreading, thin but unmistakable, from the corners of her eyes. “Thank you for coming,” the 38-yearold inmate says softly. Her eyes, chestnut and brooding, are offset by a gentle smile. She holds out a hand in welcome. And in that moment it is up to the visitor to begin weighing the choice the gesture offers: Is this the hand of a criminal who lured a man she’d never met to a brutal death and must be locked away forever? Or does it belong to a long-ago girl, who left home in rural Michigan at 14 only to end up in an abandoned house with a boyfriend who pimped her, and who now deserves a second chance? There are more than 2,000 people like Hernandez in this country, sentenced to live and die in prison for murders committed as teens. But last June the Supreme Court delivered a longawaited decision, wrestling with whether teens convicted of such brutal crimes should be punished just like adults or if their youth should matter. “Imposition of a State’s most severe penalties on juvenile offenders cannot proceed as though they were not children,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the court’s majority. Despite the justices’ strong words, they declined to settle many questions, leaving it to Michigan and 27 other states to decide whether, and how, this new standard of fairness is supposed to confront the stern justice of the past. That won’t be easy. At Hernandez’s trial, the prosecutor urged jurors to focus solely on her role in killing James Cotaling, a 28-year-old mechanic who, on a Saturday night in 1990, told his fiancée he was going out to buy a Mother’s Day card, but never came home. “This would be the type of case where it would be easy to feel sorry for Barbara Hernandez, but you all promised me at jury selection that sympathy would play no role in your deliberations,” said the prosecutor, Donna Pendergast. “You can’t look at who this defendant is. You have to look at what she did.” More than two decades later, the Supreme Court says that is not enough. But to comply could well take more than a change in legal process. It could force the system to revisit the distant past and appraise its meaning, to again confront the details of terrible crimes and to take measure of childhoods left behind long, long ago. ——— In 1987, when Barbara Hernandez turned 13, her mother moved the family from New Mexico to Capac, Mich., set in farmland on the state’s eastern shoulder. The move put fresh distance between the family and Theodore Hernandez, arrested in 1984 for molesting the oldest

In this Oct. 16, 2012, photo, Andrea Waple cries, as she talks about her sister’s juvenile life sentence, at her home outside of Columbiaville, Mich. Her older sister, Barbara Hernandez, has been in prison for over two decades after she was sentenced to life without parole. In June 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a long-awaited ruling, wrestling with questions that have confounded the justice system for years: Should teenagers convicted of the most brutal crimes be punished just like adults? Or should their youth matter?

of his three daughters and their aunt. Records show he served three years in prison for criminal sexual penetration. But another relative, who has never been charged, began molesting the two younger Hernandez girls, abuse recounted by all three sisters and noted by a state social worker who evaluated Hernandez before sentencing. The women say their mother knew what both men did, but denied the abuse or blamed it on her daughters. “She said it was my fault,” Elizabeth Evans, the oldest, said. “I started my period when I was 10 years old and my mom beat me for that reason, stating that it was because I let my dad do things to me. I got hit with the wire part of fly swatters, with extension cords.” Hernandez’s mother drank heavily, often leaving the children to care for themselves. The youngest, Andrea Waple, recalls being told in kindergarten to let herself in to the empty house. Hernandez skipped school to pick her up, stirring their mother’s anger. “Barbara always tried to take care of me even though she didn’t know how,” Waple said. “Because my mom was mad, she’d come home from work and hit us with a belt. It got to the point where we’re pretending to be crying to make her stop.” Hernandez enrolled in eighth grade at Capac Junior-Senior High School where junior Jim Hyde — four years older and repeating a year — passed her notes in the hall. But Hyde was trouble, his stepsister, Deborah Erdman, said. She recalls a boy who blew up frogs and, later, a teen with a drug habit. Erdman said her mother worried about Hyde’s domineering relationship with his new girlfriend. “If he had told her to walk out in the middle of the road and stand in front of a speeding semi, she’d have done it,” Erdman said. When her mother described the pair, “she says, ‘Debbie, that girl is just like his slave.” Hyde, also serving life without parole for Cotaling’s murder, did not respond to requests for comment. In 1988, Hyde went to live with his mother in Pontiac, a down-andout factory town outside Detroit, and asked Hernandez, 14, to join him. “I thought, ‘This is my way of getting out,’” Hernandez said. Hernandez followed, but soon gave in to her mother’s instructions and

moved in with her older sister. She stayed most of a year until she says Hyde climbed to the apartment balcony, threatening to hurt her sister’s children unless she came with him. Hyde’s mother’s house sat on a block notorious for drug dealing. Hernandez says that to feed a cocaine habit, Hyde urged her to pose as a prostitute, demand men give her money before sex, then run. Soon he told her to put aside pretending, a routine confirmed by Hyde’s sister at trial. Hyde’s mother kicked them out when Hyde stole her welfare check. But Hyde knew a place to go — an abandoned house a block over where they slept on the floor. By then, Hernandez says, Hyde was beating her if she did not follow instructions. The night before the murder, Hyde’s sister testified, he talked of leaving town by having Hernandez steal a car from one of the men who picked her up. When that didn’t work, Hyde instructed Hernandez to buy him a knife, then lure a man to the house so he could rob and kill him. Hernandez, two months past her 16th birthday, says she did as she was told. “All these years later it’s like watching somebody else, but the horror of realizing that was me,” she says. “There’s just so many things I could’ve done and mostly I’m asking myself, ‘Why didn’t you run? Why didn’t you go to the police? Why did you just blindly go to the store? Why did you bring Mr. Cotaling into the house? Everything is whys and question marks.” ——— By nightfall on Mother’s Day 1990, the Cotaling house had turned into a family command center. Across the state line, police had arrested Hyde and Hernandez, found with the car Jimmy Cotaling had been driving. Running off was not like Cotaling, quiet, with hooded blue eyes, devoted to skiing and fixing cars. Police searched three days before finding his shoeless body in an abandoned house. He’d been stabbed 25 times, his head nearly severed. Searchers found his body using a map drawn by Hernandez, who asked for a lawyer, then talked without one on her mother’s advice. What happened that night became clearer at trial. As Cotaling left home, receipts showed Hernandez bought a knife. When she returned, Hyde dispatched her to find a customer for sex. Hernandez testified she

saw a man in a silver Pontiac watching her. He pulled over and followed her to the house on Howard Street. Hernandez maintains that after entering the house, Cotaling began touching her. She knew Hyde lay in wait and when Cotaling began undoing his pants in the dark, she became scared and told him she needed to use the bathroom. Hyde attacked Cotaling from behind. The medical examiner testified that the first three wounds inflicted were to Cotaling’s lower back and two — piercing his left lung and heart — were fatal. But the prosecutor argued Hyde was too small to overcome Cotaling alone, pointing to two strands of Hernandez’s hair in Cotaling’s bloody hand. Reexamination, though, raises questions. While Cotaling stood just over 6 feet, photos show he was stringy compared to a then-muscular 5-foot-8 Hyde. More importantly, the prosecutor and defense lawyer neglected to mention Hyde was trained to fight — he was a highly ranked high school wrestler, placing sixth in the state finals.

Joe Remenap, who was Capac’s principal and officiated high school matches, said Hyde’s talent lay in a hard-nosed detachment. “When you looked him in the eyes you could see right to the back of his head, there wasn’t anything in there,” he said. “You almost have to be that way to be a wrestler sometimes.” A point made at trial, and emphasized by a state attorney at a 2010 commutation hearing, is that Hernandez admitted joining the attack. That argument hinges on testimony by Ralph Monday, a police detective present when Hernandez was questioned after arrest. “She said Hyde did all the stabbing. She might have helped hold him,” Monday testified. But interviewed recently, Monday says Hernandez never made such an admission. “My memory right now is that she had no role in even touching the guy,” said Monday, 69, now a Findlay, Ohio councilman. “Why I testified to that, who knows?” he said. ——— Two decades later, the Supreme Court says juvenile defendants’ lives must be weighed at sentencing. But that has hardly settled debate. Lawyers for prisoners seek resentencing to consider factors set out by the court, including lack of maturity at the time of the crime, family background and the teen’s role in the killing. States have taken widely varying paths to resolution. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill allowing judges to reduce sentences to 25 years to life if an inmate shows remorse and is working toward rehabilitation. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad commuted all juvenile life sentences to 60 years, a decision criticized for flouting the Supreme Court’s directive. ——— Eight Novembers ago,

Jody Robinson picked up a newspaper topped by a headline, “Children facing life.” She studied a photo inside of Barbara Hernandez — jailed at 16 for killing her brother. The prospect of releasing Hernandez infuriated Robinson, who launched an intensely personal campaign, testifying at a legislative hearing that reducing sentences of teen killers risked re-traumatizing victims’ families. When Hernandez was denied commutation in 2010, “my little guy said ‘Mom, why are you crying?’” Robinson says. “I said, ‘They’re tears of happiness, honey. The bad person’ — that’s what we call her — ‘is going to stay in jail.’” Robinson’s certainty about Hernandez is bolstered by testimony that Hernandez might have admitted holding Cotaling down. She points out Hernandez has been written up 17 times for misconduct in prison, but does not mention the worst violation was for punching another inmate, or that the last violation was in 2007. “If you ask some of my brothers and sisters they’ll probably tell you I’m obsessed,” Robinson says. She is not alone in her insistence of Hernandez’s guilt. The prosecutor, Pendergast, emphasizes that Cotaling had strands of Hernandez’s forcibly removed hair in his hand. “Contrary to her assertion that she’s cowering around the corner under some sort of influence of her boyfriend, quite the contrary. She’s right in the mix and the evidence shows that,” says Pendergast, now a Michigan assistant attorney general. It’s not clear what courts will do if asked to re-examine cases like Hernandez’s. Her mother died more than a decade ago. Hyde’s mother is dead, too. So are Hyde’s sister, father, stepmother, and the judge who tried the case.

pleased with every single batch, but he does not try to get too caught up in the complexities of the process. “There’s a lot of people who will tell all about the science of brewing, and tell you there are specific ways you must do something,” he said. “You can get wrapped up in all the technicalities of brewing, and make yourself sick about it — I used to do that, and there was no benefit in it because it’s supposed to be fun.” Carling Black Label is Lukowsky’s favorite brand of beer, but he said he has never tried to copy the recipe. “Focus on the style, not necessarily a brand,” he said. “That’s the biggest advice I can give to anybody who gets into homebrewing. If you get too wrapped up in making a specific clone of a brand, you could miss the possibilities of enjoying something that’s much better.” Wes Patton of Scottdale is also trying to provide resources to those who might be interested in giving this hobby a try. A manager at Brilhart Ace Hardware in Scottdale, Patton has been carrying homebrewing equipment, kits and ingredients in the store since April 2012. His love of beer brewing has driven him to share his craft with others. “There are a lot of people interested in making beer, but they are a little scared to go about it,” Patton said. Patton, like other homebrewers, started brewing beer at home with a process called extract brewing — a process that is implemented by using homebrewing kits. But he recently began what is called “all-grain” brewing, a process that provides a homebrewer with more opportunity to create and experiment. “Extract brewing is easiest for a beginner because it comes with raw grains, it comes with a syrup, and the syrup is all the sugar the beer needs to ferment,” Akins said. “You cook that for a while, you add the hops and that’s

pretty much it. It’s really simple, and less time consuming — it’s the easiest way for a person who’s new to brewing to get started.” Last year, Patton asked a fellow homebrewer to provide an all-grain demonstration in the store, and he’s hoping to do that again this year. “This will give people the incentive to try it,” he said. “It will show them that there’s not really much to it.” According to Akins, homebrewing requires a basic investment of $100 to $200. His initial investment increased to about $500 when he began the allgrain process. “My friend and I as we were making beer, we were really impressed with ourselves early on,” Akins said. “I think one of the things that’s appealing to me about beer is that you can get complicated — you can make sophisticated beers, you can make mistakes making beer, but the basics of making beer are pretty straight forward.” One of his beers, which he titled Mouth of Madness after a John Carpenter horror film, earned him the Judge’s Choice award at the Tangled Up in Brew 2 homebrewing competition that was held in October at Connellsville’s Yough River Park. The competition provided homebrewers the opportunity to share their recipes with others. Attendees were able to sample and judge each beer. There are 23 major beer classifications, with numerous subcategories within those styles. In addition to Akins’ favorite beer, a stout, there are light and dark lagers, India pale ales, porters, Pilsners, fruit beers, amber hybrid beers and German wheat and rye beer, just to name a few. “Eighty percent of the beers I’ve made have turned out as good as something I’d buy off the shelf. For me, that’s great,” Akins said. “I love the feedback I get when I give my friends a gift and it’s something they enjoy. That’s cool because it’s good, positive feedback for me. It’s a boost to my ego when someone takes one of my beers, and says, ‘wow, that’s really good.’”

‘Sesame Street’ nearing 1 billion views on YouTube NEW YORK (AP) — Nearing 1 billion views on YouTube, “Sesame Street” is headed for Justin Bieber territory. The children’s program is closing in on the kind of rarified digital milestone usually reserved for the likes of pop stars and cat videos. “Sesame Street” will soon pass 1 billion views on YouTube and it’s celebrating the mark with a campaign to put itself over the hump. “Sesame Street” on Thursday will post a video featuring the character Telly Monster, urging viewers to click the show past the final 20 million views and unlock a “top secret video.” Naturally, for the nonprofit children’s series, it’s a teaching moment, too. Don’t be surprised if Count von Count shows up to ponder such a big number.

Mass. seniors take acting lessons NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (AP) — Each Tuesday morning, a group of acting students assembles at the Firehouse Center for the Arts for a lesson. They spend the 90-minute class at the Newburyport theater practicing their roles and preparing for their upcoming performance. They take cues and get reminders from their director-instructor, Charles Van Eman, as he helps them become more comfortable in their parts and gives advice on voice projection and enunciation. In the end, however, the mission of the workshop is simply to have a good time. That’s one of the main reasons why, a few months ago, the Firehouse staff began their new Senior Readers Theater workshop, an arts education program for seniors age 55 and older. “This isn’t about doing a professional show,” said Van Eman, a veteran actor of more than 30 years. “This is an opportunity to have fun.” This is the second session of the Senior Readers. For a fee, seniors from throughout the area learn

the basics of acting during the workshop and, at the end, they give a free performance before an audience. The performance is a staged reading, a format in which actors remain seated and read from a script. The design is particularly helpful to senior actors, as they don’t have to worry about memorizing lines or fear falling due to mobility constraints, Van Eman said. They rely on facial expressions to help convey the plot line and the audience has an experience similar to reading a book, he added, as they get engrossed in the storytelling and fill in the props and scenery in their minds. The program has been well-received by the senior community, Firehouse artistic director Kimm Wilkinson said. While the staff has long considered holding a workshop series for seniors, it wasn’t until recently that the theater was able to receive some funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to help defray the costs. “They really love it,” Wilkinson

said. Already, several participants have enrolled in the third workshop series set to begin in February. While several of the students have some background in theater, others may have merely dabbled in the medium at some point, or perhaps have no acting experience at all, but have always had a desire to try it, Wilkinson added. By the end of the program, Van Eman says he sees a change in his pupils. They become more comfortable with their acting skills and are often eager to take the stage again. Several of the students in his first session returned for the second workshop. “They really lit up,” he said. “They had so much fun.” On Friday, the 13 actresses in the current workshop were scheduled to perform for the public at the Firehouse. The casts was set to perform two one-act plays, “The Revenge of the Red Feather Ladies” and “The Red Feather Ladies Get Their Man,” both of which were written by Maxine Holmgren.




Liven up Oscars party by recreating best food scenes SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — What happens when you ask a group of food world luminaries to come up with their picks for best food scene in a movie? You get some unexpected responses. Who knew “Pulp Fiction” was such a foodie flick? You pick up a few tips, like the “Goodfellas” guide to truly razor-thin garlic. And there will be bacon. Here are some of the nominations for Oscarworthy examples of screen cuisine, along with a trio of cocktail recipes to help you toast this year’s winners on Feb. 24 in those other categories, like best picture. Fabio Viviani, “Top Chef” Season 5 and host of Yahoo’s Chow Ciao, took a practical approach for his choice, opting for the “Goodfellas” scene that shows Paulie slicing garlic with a razor. “What a way to get the perfect thin garlic! You can almost smell the garlic and tomatoes and meat cooking in the scene.” His takeaway? “Doesn’t matter if you’re a criminal or just a normal guy,

there is nothing better than breaking bread with friends and family and sharing food. Add some vino and BOOM!, that is what’s most important in life.” No one suggested scenes from classic “food movies” like “Big Night” or “Tampopo,” perhaps not surprising considering that those kind of films don’t exactly qualify as escapism to a cook. Memorable food scenes are the ones that “sneak up on me, in non-food movies,” says Colman Andrews, editorial director of, like the old-fashioned bread-baking process shots from “The Baker’s Wife,” a French classic from the 1930s, and Ray Winstone intoning, “I’m gonna ’ave the calamari,” in “Sexy Beast.” But the food film moment he thinks about most “probably perversely, is the scene in ‘Hook’ wherein the grown-up Peter Pan figure (Robin Williams) joins the Lost Boys in a banquet of nonexistent ‘Neverfood.’ It just seems to say so much about

appetite and the joy that the mere thought of food can summon up.” Sometimes movies poke fun at the trappings of fine dining and Stephen Barber, executive chef of Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in the Napa Valley is OK with that. He likes the scene from “The Jerk,” in which a gauche Steve Martin, after first ordering some “fresh” wine, “no more of this old stuff,” is horrified to find that his date’s plate is covered with snails. Here is a cocktail recipe to add a bit of fizz to your Sunday soiree: CITRUS BUBBLY Start to finish: 10 minutes Servings: 1 1 teaspoon lime juice 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1/2 ounce Cointreau or other orange liqueur Sparkling wine, chilled Lemon twist, to garnish In a Champagne flute, gently stir together the lime juice, lemon juice and orange liqueur. Top with sparkling wine, then garnish with a lemon twist.

Europe saddled with growing horsemeat scandal Britain finds the meat in school meals, hospitals and restaurants LONDON (AP) — Tests have found horsemeat in school meals, hospital food and restaurant dishes in Britain, officials said Friday, as the scandal over adulterated meat spread beyond frozen supermarket products. Results were coming in after U.K. food safety officials ordered supermarkets and suppliers to test all processed meals labeled as beef for traces of horsemeat. Whitbread PLC, Britain’s largest hotel and restaurant company, said horse DNA had been found in lasagna and burgers on its menus. The company, whose outlets include Premier Inn hotels and the Brewers Fayre and Beefeater Grill restaurant chains, said it was “shocked and disappointed at this failure of the processed meat supply chain.” Officials also said horsemeat was present in cottage pies delivered to 47 schools in northern England and in hospital meals in Northern Ireland. Duncan Campbell, a senior British food inspector, told the BBC, “I think there will be still more discoveries to be made ... The more people have looked for horsemeat, the more products have been found containing it. I don’t think we have got to the bottom of it yet,” he said. Officials from the European Union countries decided Friday to go ahead with a plan for more intensive checks to detect horsemeat in food labeled as beef. In addition, horsemeat will be tested for phenylbutazone, or bute, an anti-inflammatory veterinary drug that’s illegal to use in animals used for food. The testing will go on for a month, and may be extended for two months after that. It will include 2,250 samples of

foods labeled as containing beef, ranging from 10 to 150 per country. Tests for bute will be done on one sample for every 50 tons of meat. The scandal, which erupted after Irish authorities found traces of horse DNA in frozen burgers last month, has grown to take in companies and countries across Europe. The escalating crisis has raised questions about food controls in the 27-nation European Union — and highlighted how little consumers

know about the complex trading operations that get food from producers to wholesalers to processers to stores and onto dinner tables. Europol, the European Union police agency, is coordinating a continent-wide fraud investigation amid allegations of an international criminal conspiracy to substitute horse for more expensive beef. French Consumer Affairs Minister Benoit Hamon said Thursday that it appeared fraudulent meat sales over

several months reached across 13 countries and 28 companies. He identified French meat wholesaler Spanghero as a major culprit. The company denied wrongdoing. Spanghero chief Barthelemy Aguerre told RTL radio Friday that his company in southern France did receive a lot of horsemeat along with beef in its shipments “and we didn’t touch” it. He did not provide details or specify whether he reported the horsemeat

delivery, saying only, “I will prove my innocence.” Hamon said Spanghero was one company in a food production chain that started with two Romanian slaughterhouses, which say they clearly labeled their meat as horse. No one has been charged yet over the current scandal, although British police on Thursday announced the arrests of three men on suspicion of fraud at two meat plants closed down by the country’s Food Standards Agency.




What about the kids? Planning getaway without children a challenge FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — In 12 years, my husband and I have had two vacations without our daughter. Once, we drove 200 miles to drop her at her godparents; the other time, her grandfather flew 850 miles on an $800 plane ticket to spell us. Oh, how we envy parents who casually plan romantic getaways sans kids. “A lot of things have to go right for parents to be able to go away together, leave their kids home and feel comfortable while they’re away,” said Stephanie Newman, a New York-based psychologist and author. Newman, 48, herself the mother of two, encourages couples to take time for themselves. Nevertheless, she hears during therapy sessions from parents who have a hard time making that a reality. “It’s a social issue,” she said. More women work outside the home; grandparents might not have traditional retirements; kids are heavily scheduled, making it more difficult for someone to step in, and our increasingly mobile society weakens our support network. Still, we’re parents, so by definition, we’re resourceful. We might not do it often, but once in a while, we beg, bribe, plead, pay and juggle to find childcare for that important couple’s vacation. Nicole Reisfeld went through a Herculean effort so that she and her husband could travel from Colorado to Maine last year to celebrate her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. With their daughter at college, she had their 16-year-old son, Ben, to plan for during their six-day trip. After school, Ben took the bus home, where a family friend picked him up after work so he could spend the night at her house. On weekends, Ben stayed home and an adult neighbor slept over. One day, the school was holding exams at a different location, so a third friend

served as chauffeur. “Added complications were that the [school] schedule kept changing so I had to keep revising the plan, and that Ben’s cell phone was no longer working so I had to get him a new phone and number the night before we left — after I had worked from 9 to 6 that day,” said Reisfeld, 49, a speech pathologist. “Making all the arrangements were exhausting, but the trip was wonderful and worth all the trouble.” Even those with nannies and regular sitters face challenges when trying to leave town. New York theatrical manager Nina Essman and her husband had only spent one night away since the eldest of their two children was born 9 years earlier. They wanted to go alone to a friend’s wedding in Florida. Essman, 45, was concerned about imposing on their longtime nanny, who only works weekdays. To win some goodwill, Essman sent the nanny to her native Trinidad for Christmas. The nanny agreed to the overnight when Essman later asked, though she also received overtime. That was two years ago and Essman and her husband haven’t had another night alone since. Some parents in a bind will even hire a stranger through an agency, said Candi Wingate, president of the nationwide Nannies4Hire. It’s always best for the nanny to first meet the children and learn the schedule, though sometimes, “If the children are older, then some parents

will just talk to the nanny over the phone,” said Wingate, of Norfolk, Neb. I can’t imagine that. When my father visited from Calgary, Canada, I asked him to come a week early and took him through the daily paces. I also left a long list of emergency numbers, provided a spreadsheet of drop off and pickup times and locations for my daughter; programmed addresses into my car’s GPS in case he got lost; and provided a printout of food I had prepared and frozen. I thought I’d gone over the top until I spoke with Linda Boden, 43, of Minneapolis. She has traveled every few years with her husband, often out of the country, leaving their two children to be cared for in a tightly choreographed program. Boden used a combination of sitters at her house so that she didn’t overburden anyone. Weekends were handled alternately by the local set of retired grandparents and the still-working grandparents who drove in from more than two hours away. Weekdays were covered by their regular sitter, who was paid about $100 a night. She color-coded her spreadsheets, one color for each set of caretakers, and since her son can’t eat gluten, she fussed over food, left lengthy dietary instructions, and even left the children’s snacks organized in the pantry in labeled individual plastic containers. “My preparations were pretty lengthy, but selfishly so,” explained Boden, who has a marketing business. “It’s not that I think these people aren’t capable of

taking care of my kids. I wanted to be able to relax. I had to plan for every possible contingency.” While not every parent goes to such extremes, you will need to provide sitters with basics like your contact information and itinerary, along with cash or a debit card for food, gas and incidentals. It’s also important to plan for emergencies. Leave contact information for doctors and dentists, along with copies of medical insurance cards and a note authorizing emergency treatment or a health care proxy form. Notify schools, sports teams and carpools that someone else will be picking up your child. Finally, consider what would happen if you and your spouse were incapacitated or killed: Does your sitter know how to reach your child’s legal guardian, and does the guardian know where the original legal papers are kept? What do the caretakers think about all this? “Micromanaging does get tiresome sometimes,” admitted my 81-year-old father, Jerry Schwartz. But he added, by having everything laid out, “I don’t have to really work at it. I can just enjoy the experience.” My father said some of his friends “say they don’t have the patience” to spend extended time with their grandchildren. Now that he’s had the experience, would he do it again? In a heartbeat, he said: “She’s growing up so fast if I don’t do it soon, I won’t have the opportunity.” I think I’ll go pack.

Weekend unofficial start of SC spring tourism Myrtle Beach to celebrate 75th anniversary of community’s incorporation CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — This weekend marks the unofficial start of the spring tourism season in South Carolina, a year in which tourism officials expect the $15 billion industry will return to levels of before the Great Recession. There are a number of new events and tourism attractions around the state this year in addition to the yearly events that have become traditions for both South Carolinians and out-of-state visitors. The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition opened its three-day run in Charleston on Friday. More than 500 artists and

exhibitors are attending the event that each year brings about 40,000 visitors to venues around the city. The expo, now in its 30th year and which started in 1983 with about 100 exhibitors and 5,000 attendees, attracts visitors to see everything form sporting dog competitions to displays of wildlife and exhibits of wildlife art. In Myrtle Beach, the weekend brings the Myrtle Beach Marathon. That event last year drew about 8,000 runners to a number of different races held in conjunction with the marathon. Taylor Damonte, the director of the Brittain Center for Resort Tourism at Coastal Carolina University, reports the center’s weekly survey of area accommodations shows occupancy could be close to 80 percent with the combination of

the marathon, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend. That would be up almost 11 percent from the same weekend a year ago. There are a number of new attractions and events across the state. The first Bulls Bay Nature Festival - From the Forest to the Sea, will be held at conservation centers, wildlife refuges and parks near Awendaw northeast of Charleston on March 23. It’s to raise awareness of the state’s coast and will feature everything from a fishing derby to crabbing and cast netting. This spring in Greenville, Greenville B-Cycle is starting a bike sharing program. The plans call for six bike stations and 28 bikes that can be shared by residents and visitors. In April, the Clemson Blues Festival will be held in various venues in

Clemson and Central. Not far away, in Pendleton, the Bart Garrison Agriculture Museum of South Carolina is scheduled to open in June. The museum will include five distinct exhibit areas and a changing exhibit focusing on South Carolina’s agriculture heritage. In Lake City, the last two weeks in April bring Artfields, a new arts show featuring art from around the Southeast with cash prize of $100,000. The event will also feature concerts, chef and artist cooking demonstrations and artist workshops. At Carowinds on the state line just south of Charlotte, ground was broken recently on The Grove, a new event venue that will be able to hold 15,000 people. In addition, the amusement park is opening Dinosaurs Alive! this spring. That attraction will feature 32 animatronic dinosaurs in

a wooded 5-acre site. Officials are making plans to have an air show along the shoreline including the Air Force Thunderbirds and other

flying teams. The show is being planned for June 28 through June 30. The celebration will also include music by the U.S. Army Band.

Breast screenings offered

Germuska receives Recognition Award

HealthPLEX Imaging is offering mammograms to women in a more relaxing and eventful atmosphere with their Mamm & Glamm event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 2. The event, held at the Mon-Vale HealthPLEX at WillowPointe Plaza in Belle Vernon, will offer women who have prescriptions for mammograms the opportunity to have their screenings and then enjoy free pampering and refreshments. According to Monongahela Valley Hospital, annual mammograms can detect cancer early — when it is most treatable and can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Mammograms can also prevent the need for extensive treatment for advanced cancers and improve chances of breast conservation. HealthPLEX Imaging recommends that women visit their gynecologists or primary care physicians to obtain prescriptions for their mammograms. Appointments are required to participate in the Mamm & Glamm event. Most insurances are accepted. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call 724-379-1911.

When Sister James Ann Germuska, executive director and CEO of Crosskeys Human Services, received the 2012 Annual Community Recognition Award, she felt the award did not belong just to her but to her entire team. “I look at [the award] as recognition not for what I do. It is what the group does,� she said. “I say to everyone, we are a team. No one does anything alone.� It all started on Superbowl Sunday, 1974, when Germuska came to Brownsville to help start a new senior center. “Sister Eugene came to me and asked if I would go to Brownsville, just for a year to get [the senior center] started,� said Germuska.

WellPoint names new CEO Teenager anger not just moodiness Veteran executive Swedish to assume position March 25 BY TOM MURPHY The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Health insurer WellPoint Inc. has named a veteran hospital executive who has never run a public company to become its next CEO. The Indianapolis company said Tuesday after markets closed that Trinity Health Corp. CEO Joseph Swedish will take over March 25, replacing interim CEO John Cannon. The nation’s secondlargest insurer has been searching for a new leader since Angela Braly resigned last August amid investor frustration over disappointing financial results. Cannon, who had no interest in becoming the permanent replacement, will remain with the company as executive vice president of legal and public affairs. The 61-year-old Swedish has a resumÊ that includes

work with HCA, the nation’s largest hospital chain. He also has served as a director for another Swedish insurer, Coventry Health Care Inc. He has served since 2004 as CEO of Michigan-based Trinity, a Catholic health system that runs 47 hospitals in 10 states. Swedish said his experience, which also includes a stint as the leader of Centura Health in Colorado, makes him uniquely prepared to lead a company in an industry undergoing huge changes. The health care overhaul will expand insurance coverage to millions of people starting next year, when online exchanges debut to help people buy coverage. Insurers will have to adjust

to competing for business on those exchanges, where many people will be able to buy health insurance with help from incomebased tax credits. Care providers and payers also are collaborating more to improve quality and cut down on wasteful spending, and Swedish said he can bring insight into how those collaborations work best to his new role. “I think we’re all striving to create engagement with consumers that has not existed in the past, particularly related to the formation of exchanges,� he said. “You have to have hypersensitivity regarding pricing strategies, transparency around quality and safety.� WellPoint Inc. runs Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in 14 states, including California and New York. Its shares fell 76 cents to $65.25 in after-hours trading.

Monumental facelift Havana restores memorial to victims of USS Maine

HAVANA (AP) — It was a little before 10 p.m. that February night in 1898 when a fiery explosion roiled the normally calm waters of Havana Harbor, blowing out windows in the city and sinking the USS Maine to the bottom of the bay, just the mast and some twisted metal wreckage left to poke above the waves. Havana’s monument to the 266 U.S. sailors who died that night was dedicated 27 years later as a tribute to lasting CubanAmerican friendship, a thank-you for Washington’s help in shedding the yoke of Spanish colonial rule, which was known for its cruelty. The years since have been unkind to the twincolumned monument, and to U.S.-Cuba ties. But while relations between Washington and Havana remain in deep freeze, the monument, at least, is now getting a facelift. The restoration project is fraught with symbolism, with the monument’s scars telling the story of more than a century of shifts in the complex relationship and changing interpretations of the marble structure. “Of the monuments in Havana, that’s one that really is struggling to contain all of these different historical episodes,” said Timothy Hyde, a historian of Cuban architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. “It doesn’t just symbolize any longer this single moment of the sinking of the Maine. It symbolizes all these periodic moments of antipathy and hostility and challenges between the two nation-states.” Soon after the USS Maine’s suddenly sank off the coast of this Caribbean capital 115 years ago Friday, the United States accused Spanish colonial authorities of responsibility in the blast. “Remember the Maine!” became a rallying cry in the States, and after the U.S. victory in the three-month Spanish-American war, Spain ceded control over Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam. The Maine monument was inaugurated in 1925 and bears the names of all 266 sailors. Two statues standing shoulder-to-shoulder at the base represent a maternal America guiding the maiden Cuba into independence. Words etched into the marble quote an 1898 U.S. congressional resolution recognizing a free Cuba, and the massive bronze eagle that long capped the monument faced due north to symbolize Washington’s promise to return home after helping the island break from Spain. “To me it signifies a legacy of loyalty ... friendship between two peoples,” said Julio Dominguez Santos, the monument’s night watchman for 17 years. But things didn’t work out as that earlier Congress had hoped. Many Cubans resented the 1901 Platt

Amendment, which said Washington retained the right to intervene militarily as a condition of ending the postwar U.S. occupation. The U.S. did in fact intervene several times, and American business and mafia gangs came to dominate many aspects of the island in the run-up to the 1959 revolution — leading many Cubans to feel like the eagle had never flown back north. Soon after Fidel Castro’s rebels marched victoriously into Havana, the tense marriage rapidly careened toward divorce and diplomatic ties were severed in 1961. Following the doomed, U.S.backed Bay of Pigs invasion months later, the more than 3-ton eagle was ripped from the monument during an antiAmerican protest and splintered into pieces. “The eagle was torn down after the triumph of the revolution because it’s the symbol of imperialism, the United States, and the revolution ended all that,” said Ernesto Moreno, a 77-year-old Havana resident who remembers waking up one day to see the statue gone. “I found it to be a very good thing, and I think most Cubans agreed at the time.” Castro’s government added a new inscription to the base of the broken monument alleging the Maine victims had been “sacrificed by imperialist greed in its zeal to seize the island of Cuba,” a reference to speculation that the U.S. deliberately blew up the Maine to justify a

Associated Press

In this Feb. 12, photo, a youth rides his bicycle past the restored USS Maine monument in Havana, Cuba. The monument was erected in 1925 in honor of U.S. sailors who died in 1898 when the USS Maine ship sank off the Havana Harbor. The years since have been unkind to the twin-columned monument and to U.S.-Cuba ties. But while relations between Washington and Havana remain in a deep freeze, the monument, at least, is now getting a facelift.

war against Spain. Historians say the explosion was probably an accidental ignition of the Maine’s own munitions, but the conspiracy theory still commonly circulates in Cuba. The Communist Party newspaper Granma, for example, has written in the past that the Maine victims were “immolated to serve as a pretext for American intervention that in 1898 prevented the island from gaining true independence” — ignoring the fact that Cuban rebels had failed to oust the Spanish on their own for decades. A Granma article published on Friday’s anniversary was less certain, but still said American self-sabotage “cannot be ruled out, given the interest among the more aggressive imperialist circles in instigating war.” The Maine eagle’s head was mysteriously delivered to Swiss diplomats, who had agreed to act as protectors of U.S. property in Cuba. Today it hangs in a conference room at the U.S. Interests Section, which

Washington maintains in Havana instead of an embassy. After relations were partially re-established in 1977, longtime foreign service officer Wayne Smith, who had been in Havana in 1961, returned and arranged to see the body, wings and tail, which are currently out of sight in a musty storage room of the Havana City History Museum. “I have been the faithful custodian of the body,” City Historian Eusebio Leal, told The Associated Press. “Smith told me that until the body and the head are reunited, there won’t be good relations between Cuba and the United States.” U.S. diplomats also possess the monument’s original eagle, toppled by a hurricane in 1926. Since 1954 that earlier bird has presided over the immaculate gardens of the Interests Section chief’s official residence. A plaque at the base calls the eagle “a symbol of the enduring friendship” between Cuba and the U.S. “I’m just happy we have it. I don’t know how it got

here. Somebody got ahold of it, saw it and gave it to us,” said John Caulfield, the Interests Section chief since 2011. Coincidentally, the U.S. State Department recently sent two specialists down to repair the first eagle, which was cracked and tarnished green. Like many structures in Havana, the monument on the seafront Malecon boulevard had become seedy from decades of neglect. Marble lion heads were damaged or looted, and the fountains were used as trash receptacles by passers-by. The repair seems to be part of a general restoration of hundreds of monuments by Leal’s office, unrelated to any change in U.S.-Cuban ties. Workers in blue jumpers recently removed scaffolding that shrouded the columns for months, revealing gleaming-white marble scrubbed clean of grime. Gone are the rusty stains beneath the two 10-inch guns that were salvaged from the Maine. The statues are a lustrous bronze again after corrosive salt air turned

them bright green. Leal said his office intends to finish remaining tasks such as getting the fountains working and relandscaping two adjacent plazas in the coming months. But amid the ongoing renovation, a return to the monument’s original spirit of friendship seems unlikely — at least for now. “Certainly we have as much wish for that to be true today as we did at the time,” Caulfield said of the inscription declaring that Cuba has the right to be free. “I hope that we and the Cubans will see a new relationship with the United States that allows those words to be true.” Leal said he also hopes for warmer ties, but first Washington must end the 51-year economic embargo and abolish “antiCuban” laws. Can he envision a bronze eagle resuming its perch someday atop the monument? “On the occasion of a friendly visit by a U.S. president,” Leal said. “I wish President Obama would be the one to do that.”

Honda Civic sedan is back as a smart buy up front and a multi-link rear, road feel is much improved, and passengers, while they notice some vibrations and rough patches, aren’t subjected to an overly harsh ride. The steering ratio is quickened for a more linear feel, and the test Civic EX conveyed competent, yet comfortable ride and handling. As in Civics from the past, the dashboard, particularly on the front-passenger side, sits low, so there’s ample window and an airy feel, even in a Civic without a moonroof. The dashboard, overall, feels like it’s a good bit away from passengers, which adds to the roomy feel. Honda’s colorful semi-circle of a tachometer that sits lower, down closer to the steering column, is eye-catching, and the standard “Econ” button on the dashboard helps maximize use of gasoline automatically. The test car with automatic transmission averaged 31 mpg in travel that was 65 percent in the city and 35 percent on the highway. This was just a bit below the federal government’s average. For the record, the test EX sedan was rated at 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Shifts were mostly smooth from the automatic transmission, and sounds from the 1.8-liter, single overhead cam four cylinder were not obtrusive, save for times of hard acceleration. The engine isn’t direct-injected, and the Civic EX torque peaks at 128 foot-pounds at 4,300 rpm.

2013 model is restyled, has better handling and more standard features BY ANN M. JOB The Associated Press

The Honda Civic is back as a smart-to-buy compact sedan, with a premium look inside and out, a more solid-feeling ride and a standard rearview camera on every model. The Civic’s steering is revised for 2013, too, and new standard equipment includes Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, iPod interface, Pandora Internet radio compatibility, speech-to-text capability, steering wheel audio controls and a sliding center armrest between the front seats. Most of these features are costly extras on mainstream compact sedans. In the case of rearview cameras, they may not be offered at all. The changes to the 2013 Civic came quickly after the 2012 Civic — a new, ninthgeneration version — debuted to criticism from reviewers and consumers about cheap-looking materials and plain styling. Nothing has changed in the engine compartment for 2013, and the Civic sedan continues with notable government fuel mileage ratings of at least 31 miles per gallon in combined city/highway travel for all but the performance-oriented Civic Si models. In addition, Consumer

This undated image made available by Honda shows the 2013 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan.

Reports puts predicted reliability for the Civic at above average. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is up some $2,000 from the base 2012 Civic sedan. Partly, that’s because the bare-bones, entry-level Civic DX sedan is not offered in 2013, and partly it’s because of the additional standard equipment and upgrades made to the car’s structure for safety. So, the base 2013 Civic sedan is an LX, which has a starting retail price, including destination charge, of $18,995 with a 140-horsepower four cylinder and five-speed manual transmission. The LX, like all 2013 Civic sedans, now includes a 5-inch liquid crystal display

screen up on the dashboard where the rearview camera images are shown. The lowest MSRP, including destination charge, for a 2013 Civic LX sedan with five-speed automatic is $19,755. These starting prices are higher than the $16,995 and $18,090 starting retail prices for the 2013 Ford Focus S compact sedan with five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions, respectively. The base Focus engine is a 160-horsepower four cylinder. But standard equipment on the base Focus S doesn’t include Bluetooth connectivity, Pandora Internet radio compatibility, sliding center armrest or a rearview camera. Another compact sedan

competitor, the 2013 Toyota Corolla, starts at $17,025 with five-speed manual and $17,855 with four-speed automatic. All Corollas have a 132-horsepower four cylinder. But the base Corolla L doesn’t include Bluetooth, rearview camera or sliding center armrest. Longtime Honda fans are likely to appreciate the improved ride and handling of the 2013 Civic sedan vis-à-vis the 2012 Civic. Honda engineers retuned various suspension components, including bushings and springs, to give drivers a more tangible feel of the road than the softer suspension of the 2012 Civic provided. So, while the suspension continues with MacPherson struts

A better work environment serves employees, company Many people spend more time in the office than they do at their own homes. As a result, the environment at the workplace is especially important, and businesses big and small should attempt to make that environment as enjoyable and supportive as possible. A positive workplace environment not only benefits the company’s employees, but it also benefits the company. Numerous studies have shown a link between workplace environment and error rate, willingness to collaborate with other employees and even absenteeism. For example, a study by the United Kingdom’s Commission for Architecture & the Built Environment and the British Council for Offices found that something as simple as good lighting and adequate daylight throughout the office can reduce absenteeism by as much as 15 percent. In addition to minor changes around the office, there are several other things companies can do to improve the workplace environment.

• Increase and improve communication. Particularly in the current economy, where uncertainty seems to be reigning over many businesses, open and honest communication with employees is especially important. As a result, communicate more frequently and effectively with staff. Let staff know the company is always open to suggestions, and respond to all suggestions to let employees know their opinions matter.

• Emphasize respect for others throughout the company. No one wants to come to work and feel disrespected. Foster a culture of mutual respect wherein everyone knows bad behavior between employees simply won’t be tolerated. Workplace bullying is not that uncommon, and employees who feel bullied or disrespected at the office are bound to be unhappy and less productive. Make sure everyone from the company CEO to the summer interns are aware that they must respect others and that they deserve respect regardless of their position within the company.

• Involve employees when instituting changes. When attempting to improve a workplace environment, go straight to the source for ideas on improvement. Employees are on the ground floor every day, and they are an invaluable resource as to what’s working and what’s not working with regards to the environment at the office. Use them to help institute positive changes, and the result will likely be an improved environment as well as employees who feel more valued.

• Show appreciation. A 2011 study from Massachusettsbased employee recognition solutions provider Globoforce found that 41 percent of workers studied are not satisfied with the level of recognition they receive at their jobs. Companies hoping to foster a more positive work environment should always show appreciation to their employees when a job is well done. Appreciation can come in many forms, but companies should never avoid expressing gratitude or appreciation simply because they expect their employees to perform their jobs well. While it’s important to set high expectations for employees, always give recognition and appreciation when employees meet those expectations. Fostering a better workplace environment can be done in a variety of ways and lead to happier, more productive employees.
