Numbers not adding up for Marcellus jobs BY RACHEL MORGAN

They predicted it would create hundreds of thousands — even millions — of jobs. They talked about energy independence, waves of new industry flocking to the area. But today, years into the Marcellus shale boom, the numbers tell a different story. Industry, legislators, geologists — even the press — called it a game-changer. Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate is now higher than the national average. The state lost 5,800 jobs last year, ranking 49th in the nation for job creation. The latest government data shows that Marcellus shale development brought about 6,362 jobs annually to the state, which accounts for less than 0.5 percent of the workforce.

Questions have lingered for decades following the death of a Hiller man killed by blunt force trauma to his skull. “This is one of those cases where it is a whodunnit,” said state police Trooper John Marshall, who oversees the cold case investigations at the state police station in Uniontown. Marshall said Anthony Joseph Marino was reported missing by his wife Alma around 7 a.m. April 12, 1979. Marshall said about an hour later, children riding a school bus spotted what appeared to be a body by the side of Bullrun Road in Luzerne Township. After dropping the kids at school, the driver went back, discovered a man’s body and called authorities. That man was identified as Marino, then 68, of Second Street Extension in Hiller. Marshall said he owned Marino Auto Supply and a car wash in Hiller. Police photos of the crime scene revealed a few things about the case that may give investigators clues. A black and white photo shows Marino laying face-up in the grass with his eyes open and his coat covering his torso.

Tea Party asks judge candidates to discuss views BY SUSY KELLY

Attorneys vying for two open judgeships in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas fielded questions generated by Fayette County Tea Party Patriots on a variety of unlikely topics for potential judges, from their

thoughts on the likelihood of Islamic law being enforced in American communities to their opinions on capital punishment. Thursday’s judicial roundtable discussion took place at Tea Party headquarters in Uniontown before a packed house. Four of the candidates — Steve Walton, Joseph M. George Jr.

has, over the last several years, created employment in Pennsylvania,” said Mark Price, labor economist for the Keystone Research Center. “But it remains the fact that employment overall in that sector — you’re talking about something that is less than 0.5 percent of the workforce … a tiny portion of all the jobs.” Yet industry groups such as the Marcellus Shale Coalition continue to tout the industry’s job creation, citing numbers in the millions for new jobs created by shale. “Employment in the entire upstream unconventional oil and gas sector on a direct, indirec and induced basis will support nearly 1.8 million jobs in 2012, 2.5 million jobs in 2015, 3 million jobs in 2020, and nearly 3.5 million jobs in 2035,” said Marcellus Shale Coalition spokesman Travis Windle. When asked why the unemployment rate is rising despite natural gas development, Windle said that you can’t blame the unemployment rate on just one segment of the economy. “While the natural gas industry continues to grow — and its number of associated jobs will certainly ebb and flow over time — other segments of the Pennsylvania’s economy, like the nation’s, continue to face headwinds,” he said. “So attempting to draw a connection to Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate exclusively to the performance of one industry is misguided, and fundamentally fails to account for the performance of a host of other industries, (such as) agricultural, health care, manufacturing.” Louis D’Amico, president and executive director of the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association, echoed Windle’s sentiment. “It is a preposterous conclusion to assume that job creation statistics for the entire state rests on the back of a single industry,” he said. “Given that about 70 rigs are operating in Pennsylvania, construction work continues on pipelines and compressor stations to bring more natural gas to market and the workers are being paid



Why are the numbers so different?

department says, include crude petroleum and natural gas extraction, natural gas liquid extraction, drilling oil and gas wells, support activities for oil and gas operations, oil and gas pipeline and related structures and pipeline transportation of natural gas. The rest — more than 214,000 employees — were employed by the ancillary industries, which includes jobs with highway, street and bridge construction, environmental consulting services, petrochemical manufacturing, freight trucking services — even iron and steel mill workers. Windle still touts the importance of the nearly a quarter of a million Pennsylvanians who he says may not be employed if it weren’t for natural gas development. “There are roughly a quarter of a million Pennsylvanians who may not be working (and paying taxes) today but for natural gas How many Marcellus jobs development,” he said. “This is a huge number by any measure, are there? especially given the fact that the national economy is still According to the Pennsylvania growing at an anemic rate folDepartment of Labor & Induslowing one of the deepest and try’s Marcellus shale-specific most protracted downturns in a data from April, as of the third generation.” quarter of 2012, there were The same data shows that 245,054 employed as a result of from the third quarter of 2009 to Marcellus development — but the third quarter of 2012, there only 30,752 were directly emwere 19,087 jobs added to the ployed within the Marcellus core industries. So according to industry, or what the department this data, jobs in the Marcellus calls the core industries. core industries added about The core industries, the 6,362 jobs each year. significantly more than the average wage of about $45,000, it is fair to say that the industry is maintaining a very strong economic presence in the state and will continue to do so.” D’Amico also said the low natural gas prices have affected the industry’s growth in the state. “Stubbornly low commodity prices for natural gas, along with other factors, are having a short-term drag on the industry in Pennsylvania,” he said. “Finally, lagging job growth across all economic sectors in the state can be linked to other factors, starting with the fact that Pennsylvania has the highest corporate net income tax in the nation.” Marcellus development is the reason the unemployment isn’t higher, Windle said. “Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate would most obviously be much higher were it not for Marcellus development,” he said.

An economist’s view So where is the industry getting their numbers? “(Groups like) the Marcellus Shale Coalition exists for a booster for the industry, creating a positive public presence and also advocating for industry and state legislators,” Price said. “When you see … estimates, especially when they come from an industry group like this one, they are often done in a way to help with the boosterism, not with an eye of what is going on — more with an eye of we need to sell this industry.” Price doesn’t buy the industry’s moniker of “game-changer” when it comes to Marcellus development. “(Marcellus) is not ultimately going to be a driver in all economic activity in the state of Pennsylvania,” he said. “It’s not something that is going to radically change the course of Pennsylvania’s economy.” But he did say the Marcellus most helps areas with smaller populations and dwindling economies. “It’s important, especially in places where there is drilling, especially if those places are small with a small population, and in particular if those places have been in decline,” he said. “All jobs matter — and if you have a job in that sector, (such as) a truck driver, that’s important to you, that salary is important to you, good for the economy.” Windle agreed, citing the fast

Price pointed out that the industry’s numbers and the Department of Labor and Industry’s numbers also differ because they use different models to calculate them. The department, he said, uses a “jobs you can count” method, while industry groups tend to use an input/output method. “A lot of the industry estimates that you see thrown around come from input/output models, where an economist has been hired to take numbers, run through a model, make a lot of assumptions and trace out how big the industry is,” he said. He also said that even the core industries jobs calculated by the Department of Labor & Industry are really just their “best educated guess about what’s there.” “There’s no way in this data to know for sure whether the jobs are actually related to Marcellus,” he said. “Good sense tells you that the core jobs are more than likely (related to Marcellus) only because we think nothing else is going on. The trouble you have with models is they are models — they aren’t necessarily reality, they are an economist’s best guess.” He also doesn’t put much stock in the jobs created by what the Department of Industry and Labor calls ancillary industries, which accounts for more than 214,000 of more than 245,000 jobs some say the Marcellus has created. “I have no confidence that the ancillary industries are capturing anything,” he said. Even then, Price gives credit where credit is due — namely, the 20,000 jobs that can most likely be attributed to the core Marcellus industries. “(Marcellus development) is definitely creating jobs,” he said. “Twenty thousand jobs is a lot of jobs. I wish it was more. It’s creating opportunities, it’s creating employment and we should recognize that. But absolutely we shouldn’t overstate it.”

Time for change School districts need anti-nepotism policy Several weeks ago, we ran a poll on our website asking our readers if they thought local school boards should have a policy banning the hiring of relatives. The results were very clear. Out of the 627 respondents, 501 said they favored such a ban. Only 72, or approximately 11 percent, said they were against such a ban. So, you’d think that with so many people favoring such a ban that local school boards would be lining up to pass their own anti-nepotism proposals. Well, think again. Of Fayette County’s six school boards, only Frazier has an anti-nepotism policy. And if our interviews with local school board candidates for the May 21 primary are any indication, there won’t be any more antinepotism policies being passed around here for quite some time. With very few exceptions, the candidates all said that while they were opposed to nepotism, they didn’t think a ban on hiring relatives was the right thing to do. The biggest reason, they said, was that school boards should hire the most qualified candidate even if it’s someone related to a board member. But here’s the problem with that position. How is the relative of a school board member supervised or, better yet, disciplined if necessary? What can a principal say to the school board president’s son or daughter, when the principal knows the school board president holds the key to his or her future. Remember, all it takes is five votes for a principal to be demoted or even fired. It’s the same for a school district superintendent. School administrators have to walk a fine line when it comes to dealing with school board members in the best of times. Upset the relative of a school board member, and all bets are off. It gets back to supervision and discipline, which is necessary for a well-run school district. When it comes down to relatives of school board members, you can bet there’s little or none of that going on. So, students suffer, and test scores with them. Local residents have to look no further than the Frazier School District to find evidence of a link between test scores and anti-nepotism policies. Frazer was the only one of six Fayette County school districts to make Average Yearly Progess (AYP) on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) testing last year. Over the years, the district has scored higher on standardized testing than any other Fayette County school district on a consistent basis. Former Frazer School District Superintendent Dr. Frederick Smeigh credited the anti-nepotism policy as the main reason for the high test scores. It was Smeigh who pushed for the policy in the early 1990s when he was named superintendent of the Frazier School District. It’s also noteworthy that the district’s test scores were nowhere near as high as they were before it enacted the antinepotism policy. In the end, it’s clear that anti-nepotism policies work, because they take the politics out of school districts. It disqualifies school board candidates running to get relatives hired, and teachers are hired because of their qualifications not their connections. It’s a win-win for taxpayers and students. And it can happen here if local residents make their views known to school board candidates running in the May 21 primary and demand that they change their position on this all-important issue. This is one of those instances where things can be changed for the better. The situation is far from hopeless. Anyone doubting whether such a change is possible need only look at the Frazier School District for proof that not only can it happen, but it has happened.

Young women face difficult choices During the debate over whether emergency contraception should be available without a prescription to all women of child-bearing age (as of now, young women under the age of 15 need a prescription), we’ve become completely caught up in the politics of it. And in the science. In the ethics. How do parents feel about the possibility of their daughters taking emergency contraception? How does blocking the measure to allow access affect Obama’s credibility and his political image, his desire to be seen as tough yet reasonable? Liberals ask how could we, as a seemingly intelligent nation, distrust scientific evidence that proves emergency contraception is safe for women of any age? Conservatives ask how could we, as a moral nation, condone sex among unmarried teenagers? But all of these questions downplay or flat-out ignore the perspective of the important part of the entire debate: the young women. The young women, who have found themselves in a scary, potentially lifechanging situation, need a way out of it. (And, to be clear, that situation is not an unwanted pregnancy. Don’t confuse morning after pill with Mifepristone, the abortion pill. The morning after

Jessica Vozel pill prevents the woman’s body from releasing an egg, which therefore prevents conception. No egg and sperm ever meet to become a zygote, or anything even approaching a living being, because there is no egg. Women release eggs that go unfertilized every single month, and those are not called miscarriages. Again, emergency contraception is not akin to abortion, and anyone who says otherwise is flat out lying). Life for teenaged girls is incredibly difficult. Of course, life for all teenagers is difficult. Most of us couldn’t be paid to go back there. But there’s a layer of difficulty for teenaged girls that teenaged boys just don’t have to deal with. Sexuality for young males is pretty straightforward. Everyone knows young men have hormones, and they are given free reign to act on them. Boys will be

boys! But when it comes to young women in sex? A lot of times it’s a huge mess of shame, desire to please, self-esteem issues, and, yes, hormones. Add to that the fact that the consequences of sex for young women far outweigh the consequences for young men, and it becomes even more important that women have control in this area of their lives. But I want to be sure not to paint young women as victims, here. Lately it seems like that’s the way we’re most comfortable talking about them. Of course, terrible crimes like the Steubenville rape case should be reported on. But half of the reportage was about what drove the “promising” young football stars to such actions. The way we talk about teenagers, the boys make decisions — and editorials constantly question, “What’s wrong with America’s young men?” We dissect the choices that lead them to bring guns into movie theaters and schools and put bombs in backpacks. Meanwhile women are expected just make do with what happens to them. They don’t have a choice. They don’t get editorials. And when we turn young women into victims, we don’t trust them to make sound decisions on their

own regarding their own bodies. So no, young women aren’t victims. We should be comfortable knowing they can handle taking one pill to prevent pregnancy (and that’s what the most popular brand of emergency contraception, Plan B One-Step, is — one pill). I’m writing a series of stories for the HeraldStandard about the community service efforts of eight young women (and one male, non-traditional college student) in Fayette County. These young women who volunteer time with their churches, with children with pediatric cancer, with organizations that fight every day to make our community a better place. It convinced me that our community is full of bright, giving young women with dreams, goals and the wherewithal to handle the challenges life throws at them. They are not victims. And they can make decisions about their own bodies. Let’s do away all the “concern” for health, forget about ethics and science of the debate and give young girls a voice in this. They’ve been in the background long enough. Jessica Vozel is a resident of Perryopolis.


Mothers special people in our lives In the Bible, Zion refers to a physical place, the City of David, the City of God. Spiritually, Zion refers to the holy people of God. The holy people, the people of Israel are often referred to when discussing the term Zion. When the song, “We’re Marching to Zion,’’ was written in 1707, Issac Watts’ lyrics gave a melodic backdrop to the story of freedom for God’s holy people. Over the years, the song and term were associated with other movements of people from slavery to freedom. Theologically, the term Zion also refers to the divine purpose of the Davidic (King David) dynasty – translation, King David (yeah – the David that killed Goliath) was the ancestor of Jesus Christ – Jesus is the divine purpose. Today, the word Zion has been used as a name, mostly for boys. The name Zion means fortified, strong. It also means the highest point and heavenly. In 1997, Grammyaward winning artist Lauryn Hill gave birth to her eldest child, and she named him Zion. When Ms. Hill discovered she was pregnant, she was at the height of her career. She was a known actress, part of the group Refugee Camp, aka Fugees, and she was in the middle of recording her first major solo album. She was faced with some very important decisions to make about her future. One year later, I was completing my senior year of high school. In February of 1998, I just celebrated by 18 birthday, completed my last season of basketball, was

Gina Jones working at Adrian’s Market on the weekends and was preparing for track to start. I was in the doctor’s office; I had been there a lot lately. I really hadn’t felt well since January – test after test revealed no medical reason as to why I was feeling the way I was feeling. The physician came into the room where my mom and I were waiting for him and asked me if I could submit another urine sample because the nurse mishandled the one I already submitted. I walked out into the hallway, and the doctor pulled me aside, into the corner of the room. He took my hand and told me that I was pregnant. The room began to spin, I fell to my knees, crying and screaming. I couldn’t control myself – I was hyperventilating. The doctor asked my mom to leave the room for a minute so that he could talk to me privately. So I entered the room, the doctor informed me of my options and said that I needed to make a decision and immediately – I was nearly four months pregnant. I was still hyperventilating – two minutes ago I was leaned back against the wall,

thinking about what I was going to do the next weekend – now I needed to make a very important decision about my future. In July of 1998, I gave birth to my son. One month later, Lauryn Hill released her album the “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.’’ Track #4 – To Zion is a song that I sang (and continue to sing) everyday – I know every word. The song is Lauryn’s love letter to her son, and I’ve shared some of the lyrics below. Unsure of what the balance held I touched my belly overwhelmed By what I had been chosen to perform But then an angel came one day Told me to kneel down and pray For unto me a man child would be born Woe this crazy circumstance I knew his life deserved a chance But everybody told me to be smart Look at your career they said, “Lauryn, baby use your head” But instead I chose to use my heart Now the joy of my world is in Zion Now the joy of my world is in Zion How beautiful if nothing more Than to wait at Zion’s door I’ve never been in love like this before Now let me pray to keep you from The perils that will surely come

See life for you my prince has just begun And I thank you for choosing me To come through unto life to be A beautiful reflection of his grace See I know that a gift so great Is only one God could create And I’m reminded every time I see your face That the joy of my world is in Zion Now the joy of my world is in Zion Everywhere the name Zion appears, I changed it to Christian. And everytime you see Lauryn’s name I used my own name. My version, is my love letter to my son. The most important role I have and will ever serve is that of his mother. I am so fortunate to celebrate Mother’s Day with the greatest, surprise gift I’ve ever received. This week, take time to honor your mother or someone who has been a mother figure to you. Mother’s Day is next Sunday, May 12. Plan and think about how you can show them how much they mean to you. I plan to honor my mother, my stepmother, my aunts, my sisterin-law, my friends, my extended family members. You see I am a great mother, because they are great mothers. What will you do? Who will you honor? Get to planning! Get to doing! Get to thanking! Gina Jones is a life-long resident of Fayette County and serves the community as an educator and advocate.

Today’s Question: Do most people here in Fayette County still want to work for a living? Durand “Frenchy” Frey

Scott Phillips

I would say there’s quite a few that do, but I think it’s the older generation that’s more like that than the young generation, because I think there’s too much free stuff out there today. And it doesn’t give these kids the initiative to really want to get out there and earn, because when they’re getting it given to them, well, they have no need to go look for anything to better themselves.

I believe, yes. I think most people prefer to earn their own wages and make their own living.

I’d say a lot of the older ones don’t, because a lot of them are unhealthy and can’t work. And the young ones want to work, but I found when I was training that they wanted to make money but didn’t want to work for it.

I can’t really speak for everybody, but myself, yes, I do work for a living. And I like to work, because I earn the things that I work for. It feels good to be able to earn those things.

Yes, but we need more jobs available to us.

” from Words theWeb Fayette County’s employment rate rose slightly from 8.9 percent to 9 percent in March, according to state officials. A spokesman said surveys show that people are leaving the labor force by choice and not because they are too discouraged to continue looking for work. Do people in Fayette County want to work? Are there jobs if you want to work?

“The hotels in town are overflowing with workers from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Fayette County officials never intended for local folks to have anything other than the bottom-of-the-barrel minimum wage jobs. A productive and educated work force is not in the best interests of those running this sideshow.” “One company even has buses to take the out-of-state workers to the job sites. But you’ll never read that in the Herald-Standard.” “They have buses at the Super 8 for the gas well workers. Shipping them in by the busloads.” “Fayette County is made up of housing projects.

Public water hook-up criticized By Amy Ulery

ignored by my elected officials. I am also copying state Sen. Richard Kasunic, D-Dunbar, on this letter, as I have also learned that through his actions, he was able to get public water brought to Dunbar on Balaban Street where his son had just bought a house. It is my hope that he will give the residents of Banning Road the same consideration and treatment he showed to his son. The need for public water on Banning Road is even greater now considering that seismic testing will begin in the next few months to pave the way for future Marcellus shale gas drilling, according to an article in the newspaper published on April 3. While Rod White stated that there will not be any danger to the well water supply in the area, this has not been the case in other areas where fracking is occurring, and there is little reason to believe that Perry Township will see any different of a result. The township has been well aware of the “water problems” on Banning Road for years and has done nothing to even attempt to fix them.

I wrote a letter to the Perry Township supervisors and to members of the Perry Township Municipal Authority, North Fayette Water Authority and Fayette County commissioners. In the letter dated April 5, I referenced an April 25 article in the Herald- Standard entitled, “Water Authority Working to Fix Storage Tank Leak.’’ The article states that it would cost approximately $26,000 per house to install public water lines on the section of Banning Road where I reside. Considering that the township already found money to have sewage (which is more expensive to install than is water), I do not see how this is reason to deny the project. The money is obviously there for such a project. The same article also stated that someone would be in contact with me regarding the letter and how I could find more sources of funding. To date, I have received no response from anyone. This is the job they were elected to do, and the residents of Banning Road are some of the constituents they were elected to serve. I do Amy Ulery is a resident of not appreciate my concerns being Dawson.

A soldier not forgotten (This poem was dedicated to the memory of Smokey Bakewell and his family.) I remember a soldier, who went to Viet Nam. He was my neighbor’s nephew … and his mother … (a friend of my mom) We called him “SMOKEY BAKEWELL”, and he drove a “white Corvette.” I was “little”, but his smile I truly won’t forget. I saw him in his uniform before he left for “Nam” While standing on his “Aunt Ruth’s” porch (HE LOOKED SO NEAT AND STRONG)!!! Then one early morning, we were awakened by a “SCREAM’ And ‘POUNDING’ on our front door. (What did this all mean?) WE LEARNED THAT SMOKEY HAD BEEN KILLED BY A SNIPER IN A TREE! That day was oh, so solemn, and still I can recall The memories of a soldier I knew (He did die for us ALL!) I now live in Pittsburgh, but my COUNTRY ROOTS still last. Just like the memory of “SMOKEY” WILL NOT EVER PASS. Yes, dedicate a bridge to him, but it will be for many more Who have served and crossed over from past many wars.

Police Police say speed a factor mugshot corner Reports in fatal Redstone crash By Josh Krysak


Theft investigated Uniontown city police are looking into the theft of a credit card reported Saturday morning by April Bishop of 69 Butler St., Uniontown.


Man cited A Pittsburgh man was cited for public drunkenness after being found on the sidewalk at the intersection of Gallatin Ave. and Penn St. around noon Saturday. A portable breath test showed Robert Winter Jr. with a blood alcohol level of .125, with .08 considered legally intoxicated in Pennsylvania.


PFA order violated Lawrence Serretta Jr. was charged with indirect contempt of court, simple assault and harassment after allegedly going to the home of Shannon Marie Shields at 36 E. Highland Ave., Uniontown and striking her in the head with his fist. Shields said he also pushed her, causing her to hit her head on a towel rack and a bathtub. Shields has an active protection from abuse order against Serretta.


Jacket found State police said a large black leather jacket was found on I-79 southbound at the Exit 14 off ramp in Greene County Saturday at 10:12 a.m. The owner of the jacket may claim it by contacting the state police at Waynesburg.


Man charged State police said Christopher Glenn Myers, 50, of Emporia, Va., was stopped for a traffic violation on April 27 on Route 119 and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and public drunkenness.


Theft reported State police said a license plate was removed from a vehicle owned by Pechin’s while it was parked in the store’s lot on Route 119 between Wednesday and Friday.


Woman threatened Uniontown police said Margaret Scott reported being threatened by two females and one male at Pershing Court after 3 a.m. on Friday.


Man arrested

A state police trooper, testifying as a crash reconstruction expert, told a Fayette County judge that a Merrittstown man was traveling at least 87 mph when his pickup truck collided with a car, killing a Republic man last summer. Cpl. John Weaver testified that Gary Lee Brackenbury Jr., 33, was driving at least 42 mph over the posted speed limit, and was intoxicated when his pickup truck slammed into a sedan being driven by Anthony Wayne Balosky. Weaver’s crash reconstruction highlighted a second day of testimony before Judge Steve P. Leskinen considering a motion by Brackenbury to have charges against him dismissed in connection with the crash on Route 40 early Aug. 2. Brackenbury is charged with homicide by vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, aggravated assault by vehicle while DUI, drunken driving and four traffic-related offenses for his involvement in the crash, which occurred near Royal Road and resulted in Balosky’s death. Brackenbury’s attorney, Michael Sherman

of Pittsburgh, wants the charges dismissed, bringing up numerous challenges, including the argument that prosecutors have failed to produce enough evidence to proceed and that a search warrant for Brackenbury’s vehicle was illegally obtained. Weaver testified that when he arrived he recognized that the crash had been severe. “I observed a debris field that said through my experience that a very violent collision had occurred,” Weaver testified. He added that even while he determined that Balosky was traveling about 12 mph above the speed limit, the speed of Balosky’s vehicle was not a factor in his death or in the crash. He also testified that the crash could have been avoided if Brackenbury had not traveled into the eastbound lane. “As long as there was no vehicle completely in his lane of travel, the collision would never have occurred,” Weaver testified. Redstone Township police Officer Troy Rice said that he found Brackenbury under the influence of alcohol when he arrived at the crash and said that later, following his arrest, Brackenbury

told officers that the crash was an accident and that his brakes failed. Weaver testified that Brackenbury never applied the brakes prior to the crash and was accelerating westbound, uphill when he left his lane of travel and crashed into Balosky’s vehicle head-on. He also noted that there were no signs of issues with the brakes or the vehicle prior to the collision. Redstone Township police Sgt. Norman Howard testified in March that he was off duty the night of Aug. 1 and encountered Brackenbury at a bar socially, but they did not go to the bar together. Howard said he observed Brackenbury drink about three shots of alcohol and leave with a six-pack of beer, and that roughly a half-hour later he received a phone call from Officer Troy Rice notifying him that there was a crash on Route 40. Leskinen granted a request by Sherman to file his closing argument at a later time after he has a chance to review transcripts from the first round of testimony that was given in March. Assistant District Attorney Anthony Iannamorelli will then have seven days to file his response.

Arnold Lee Burgraff, 43, of Smithfield wanted on multiple drug charges filed in January, 2012.

Kevin Wayne Brinker, 43, of Connellsville wanted for drunken driving charges filed on April 10, 2012.

John Peter Waggoner, 35, of Olney, Texas, wanted for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in January.

Nicholas Scott Bell, 23, of Monessen wanted for escape and related charges filed on Jan. 29, 2012.

question about sharia law, or the moral and religious code of Islam, by saying that under the expansion of the religious freedom granted under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, they could see how it would be possible to see sharia law being enacted in some communities. Each, however, said they believed sharia law should not be a part of the U.S. system. “As a judge,” said Sepic, an assistant district attorney from South Union Township, “I think you would have to drag me off the bench before you could get me to enforce it.” On the subject of the death penalty, George, Cordaro and Sepic agreed that if a jury rendered a capital sentence, each of them would be willing to impose it. George and Cordaro noted that as prosecutors, they have both had the experience of working on capital cases. Sepic added that he believes it is unfair to the taxpayers to allow convicted murderers to file appeals indefinitely and effectively avoid the punishment meted to them. Walton was the lone dissenter on the subject of the death penalty. He apologized to those in the room whom he believed would disagree with him, and said, “I believe in the sanctity of all life. I can’t sit here as one who opposes abortion, and sanctify the death penalty.” Responding to comments made by Sepic regarding the limits of constitutional due process when it comes to highly technical appeals in capital cases, Walton said, “If it’s a death penalty case, I don’t want a fair trial, I want a perfect trial.” “We’ve just not seen how the death penalty deters crime,” added Walton, a Menallen Township attorney. All of the candidates have crossed-filed and will appear on both the Republican and Democratic ticket in the May 21 primary, but Tea Party members wanted to know the candidates’ individual political affiliations and why. Walton said he tells anyone who asks that he is a registered Republican. “I tell them, ‘If you believe conservative principles should guide the

Lynch drives a white four-door Buick Century with Pennsylvania registration HLG-7956. Lynch is 6-foot-1 and, according to police, has a larger build. Anyone with information is asked to contact police immediately.

Diocese strategic plan to affect area parishes The committee found that the diocesan strategic plan and its 2008 recommendations “still are valid as our foundational planning document for addressing the challenges we face now in some of our parishes and schools in 2013,” he said. During the past year’s planning efforts, “we continued to remember our shift from an ‘historical model’ to a ‘pastoral needs model’” and remained committed to “recognize the need to objectively distinguish the ‘nice’ from the ‘necessary,’ and remember “that ‘small and scattered’ is not a formula for long-term survival,” Brandt said. He noted that the Diocese of Greensburg currently has 67 active priests, down from 101 in 2000, and that projections, which account for deaths, sickness, ordinations and departures, indicate that in five years that number will be reduced to 48 and will plummet to 27 priests by 2025. Prior to finalizing his decisions, Brandt said he consulted with two clergy advisory bodies, the Presbyteral Council and the College of Consultors, which discussed and unanimously supported his actions. In addition to St. Hedwig, Smock, St. Boniface, Latrobe (Chestnut Ridge) will be closed. Six parishes will enter new partner configurations. St. John the Baptist, Scottdale, will be partnered with St. Joseph, Everson. Our Lady of Grace, Greensburg, will be partnered with St. Benedict, Marguerite. St. Paul, Greensburg, and St. Bruno, Greensburg, will be partnered.

Case Continued from A1

“One of the psychological things is — did the killer intend to kill him or was there something else going on here? Robbery?” Marshall said. “Because if he hit someone with the intention of killing them, he’s not going to cover him up in case he is cold.” Police photos show a bloody spot on Marino’s forehead near his right temple slightly below a receding hairline where the killer struck. Marshall said Marino’s skull was not hit multiple times nor did the rest of his body show any signs of trauma such as being hit by a car, beaten up or harmed in other ways. Marshall said the face being visible instead of covered is perhaps a clue. “In dealing with homicides, one of the things is if you cover a victim’s face – number one, that is regret,” he said. “Number two, you are tied into that victim somehow either friendship, known acquaintance – the fact that he was covered with his coat is very significant. If this is the murder scene itself and they are intending to hit him to do severe damage, you are not going to cover him up. You are going to try to get away as fast as you can. Or number two, he is hit somewhere else and driven to this location, possibly is he still

breathing and they didn’t want him to be cold and they covered him up. Why would you cover him up?” Marshall said there are no signs of robbery because Marino had all of his personal effects with him – wallet and keys – everything except for his eye glasses. Marshall said Marino’s Cadillac showed no signs that anyone went through the car, which was found in one of the bays at the car wash by his auto supply shop in Hiller. Marshall said there were numerous fingerprints found on the car,

but they came back negative from police crime lab. “Everything from 1979 they could do, they did,” he said. Police photos reveal two upright cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer laying in a narrow spot between the victim’s right arm and his torso. Laying in the grass next to the victim’s torso was a can of transmission fluid that may have come from Marino’s auto supply store. “Is it a coincidence that someone threw transmission fluid there – is it a sign?” Marshall said.

Marshall noted these details, so he doesn’t think their placement is a coincidence when considering how the body was left by the side of the road. Marshall said police took everything in that area for lab analysis and as evidence. Marshall said investigators are not certain where Marino was murdered, so his final resting place by the side of the road about a mile and half from his auto shop offers more questions. “One assumption was, was he placed there was the crime

committed there?” he said. Marshall said Alma Marino was the last person to see her husband alive. Marshall said she told police that after her husband took a shower, he left their home around 8 p.m. April 11. Marshall said she didn’t know where her husband was going that night. When he didn’t return home, she called police. Marshall said Anthony Marino did not have a criminal record nor was he engaged in any illegal activities when he was killed. Marshall said police had multiple persons of interest from 1979 to 1994, but those people were cleared. The case went cold again, but has heated up in recent months. “There have been new developments, new persons of interest,” he said.

Character, charity & citizenship Penn State Fayette holds 43rd annual commencement ceremony BY TONI CEKADA For the Herald-Standard

Wearing caps and gowns of white and blue, Penn State Fayette’s graduating class of 2013 came proudly marching in to the community center Saturday on Penn State Fayette’s Eberly campus to close one chapter, and to celebrate the beginning of a new one. The nearly 200 graduates learned a life lesson about “the three Cs,” which include character, charity and citizenship during a speech presented by Robert Eberly Jr., Eberly Foundation President, during the campus’ 43rd annual commencement. Eberly suggested to graduates that they consider three “C” words throughout their lives. The first word was character. “Character has often been defined as doing the right thing when no one is watching,’’ he said. “As I stand before you today, I have every confidence that the lessons you’ve learned from your parents and families, ably supplemented by your experiences here—both in and out of the classroom— have equipped you admirably to do the right thing, to make the right choices in those tough situations that will insure you a successful career and, more importantly, a successful life.” Eberly went on to share his thoughts about a second attribute that begins with the letter C, charity. He told students he recommended they give back to their communities, and assured students that future generations would appreciate their efforts. “Indeed you may discover a need that is not being met by an existing charitable group. There is an opportunity to be pro-active, to start a new organization to meet that need. After all, even the largest charities started out as a gleam in someone’s eye.” Eberly also talked about the word citizenship. He addressed that the country is experiencing “dangerous

times,” and asked what a responsible citizen should do in such times. He told graduates to vote, in not only the presidential, but also state and local elections, and not only on warm, sunny days, but also on cold and snowy days. “But your vote will lack true meaning if it is an uneducated one,” he said. “And so, I would say to each of you to take time to educate yourselves on the issues of the day whether global, national or local.” Eberly said that he felt that focus has shifted away from history, geography and civics, and encouraged graduates to be an advocate for the three subjects. Quoting George Santayana, Eberly said that “those who ROBERTO M. ESQUIVEL|Herald-Standard cannot learn history are (From left) Samuel L. Buecher, Curtis J. Bukovan, Suzanne M. Jones and Robert F.

Former High school senior helps those in need teacher pleads guilty This is the seventh in a series of nine stories BY JESSICA VOZEL

For the Herald-Standard


A former Connellsville math teacher scheduled to be tried for allegedly sending sexually explicit text messages to a high school student entered a general guilty plea Friday instead of facing a jury in the upcoming criminal court term. Kevin Bell, 27, of Mount Pleasant, was charged in March 2012 with corruption of minors and disseminating explicit sexual material to a minor. State police claimed Bell told them he sent a 17-year-old student a sexually

Lacombe said. “Therefore, it is my responsibility to take care of those who do not have these luxuries.” To that end, Lacombe has spent time deLacombe livering meals to the elderly, ringing bells for the Salvation Army, collecting gifts for Toys for Tots and sending packages to our troops through the CAHS

no idea there was marijuana growing inside a house on Berkeley Street when he responded to a code violation call and asked to do “a quick visual inspection” which ultimately led to the arrest of the homeowner. Charles A. Smith, 52, now of Smithfield,

is accused of growing marijuana inside the house at 17 Berkeley St. His attorney, Patrick K. Nightingale, argued Friday that marijuana plants seized by police should be removed from evidence because they were discovered under false pretenses. Nightingale’s contention is that Smith did not knowingly, intelligently or voluntarily agree to allow officers to search his home for drugs, but instead was misled by the “ruse” of a code violation inspection to gain access to the home. Police allegedly found 377 plants in the home as well as 20 pounds of loose marijuana leaves and stems, and growing equipment such as lamps, fertilizer and a water heater.

Smith was charged with possession of marijuana, manufacturing marijuana and possession with intent to deliver drug paraphernalia. Mark Pasquale, who is both a Pennsylvania state constable and city code enforcement officer, testified that on April 26, 2012, that he went to Smith’s house to investigate a call concerning garbage, refuse and unsanitary conditions observed around the outside of the house. Pasquale testified that another code enforcement officer, Chuck Coldren, accompanied him, and when they got

violation calls. Pasquale testified it depends on the violation. He explained that if the call is about high grass, for example, he might tell the property owner to cut the grass within 48 hours or face a citation. Nightingale asked Pasquale why, if it was obvious from the exterior of the house that there were code violations, he did not give Smith time to clean up or face a citation. Why, Nightingale asked, did he believe it was necessary to enter the residence? Pasquale said as an investigator, he’s obligated to conduct a thorough assessment, including the inside of the house, in case there are other code violations like fire hazards or animal control issues. “What if I leave, and something happens, it catches on fire?” Pasquale said. “Then I’m on the hook for not doing a thorough investigation.” Nightingale then scrutinized Pasquale’s testimony that he wanted to do a “quick visual

inspection” of the inside of Smith’s home. “When you said ‘I just need to do a quick visual inspection,’ what you meant was you needed to do a thorough inspection to satisfy yourself that there were no further code violations?” Nightingale asked. Pasquale testified that “your interpretation (of ‘quick’) and my interpretation might be different,” and said it was like telling someone to “hold on a second.” “There should be an understanding,” Pasquale said, that the inspection will be somewhat thorough. He noted that the time that elapsed between entering the house and finding marijuana upstairs was about 5 or 6 minutes. President Judge John F. Wagner will rule on the motion at a later date, pending briefs from Nightingale and Assistant District Attorney Mark Brooks. Smith remains free after posting $100,000 straight cash bond following his arrest.

WAYNESBURG — Engines and excitement will be revving up and firing on all cylinders at the Greene County Airport on Sunday as Altered Gas Performance will present the first of the season’s Flashlight Drags events. Racing enthusiasts will descend upon the airport beginning at 11:30 a.m. The races will begin at 2 p.m. starting with a flashlight signal, just like early days of rebel dragracing that some know only from old movies. Cars and trucks will drag down the one-eighth mile airport runway. The event evolved from a simple idea to provide a venue where a hot-rodder or tuner could burn tire and race a buddy, without risking jail time or jeopardizing safety. The goal was to provide the illusion and excitement of street racing with a touch of nostalgic old-school drag racing. “We are very excited to be back in Greene County,” said Michael Schindel of Altered Gas Performance Events. “The first order of business is to thank Greene County Commissioners Chuck Morris, Archie Trader and Blair Zimmerman. These folks truly have made a commitment to their residents and continue to demonstrate their support for the Flashlight Drags.” Schindel also said that he thanked county recreation director Jake

Blaker and his crew for the part they play in preparing for the event and on the day of the race. Schindel said safety remains his company’s primary focus. “To address that, we added a new feature that is focused on new racers, young drivers and experienced drivers alike,” he said. “If you are new to dragracing, we will be giving drag-racing lessons prior to the actual races. We will teach the driver how to safely launch the car from the starting line as quickly as possible, without burning your tires off. Basic car control techniques will also be covered during the new driver orientation.” All vehicles must be street legal, and that, Schindel said, “means real mufflers, no exceptions.” The Flashlight Drags crew has a busy season scheduled with other races to be held at the airport on June 2, July 7, Aug. 4 and Sept. 14. Schindel reports the enthusiasm for the Flashlight Drags races is still soaring. “We have more businesses on board with sponsorships than we could have imagined and it is these people who make the races possible,” he said. There will be a vendors midway this year. In addition to performance and parts vendors, those who attend will find artists, crafters, antique dealers and local merchants. A disc jockey also will be on hand in a “greaser” persona. For more information on the Flashlight Drags, visit online at www. index.php.



Uniontown man enjoying visit to Brazil By Dave Slusarick For the Herald-Standard

“A stranger,” entertainer Will Rogers said, “is just a friend I haven’t met yet.” To understand me, you must understand that my soul is perpetually restless; I am a man fueled by the persistent notion that there are future friends, near and far, waiting to be met. The road of personal growth does not need to be traveled alone. This narrow, curvy stretch of blacktop, with few signs and lots of potholes, becomes less of a task to be mastered and more of an adventure to be had, as each new friend takes a turn in the passenger seat, helping us to navigate. If you would have told me six months ago that this mad journey would land me in Paraná, Brazil, where I am spending much of April and May immersed in the culture as a team member for Rotary International’s Group Study Exchange (GSE), I would have laughed in disbelief. Yet, with disbelief intact, here I am. Riding shotgun with me, as of late, is Araken, a man with a mischievous glimmer in his eye. People began shortening his name to “Ken” when he left his native Brazil in the 1960s to attend Miami University of Ohio. It was around that time that he developed partiality for the music of Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker and Iron Butterfly. He and his friends even cut a barbed wire fence to sneak into Woodstock. Fast forward to the 21st century, and Ken, whose rock ‘n’ roll CDs sometimes skip from the overuse they still receive, has amassed four

decades of multinational experience in developing and marketing new businesses. He speaks English, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, and can command anyone’s attention by telling a joke or tale that fits the moment perfectly. Another important recent co-pilot of mine is a financial consultant named André. Wearing impeccably pressed, pleated clothing, but lacking any air of pretense, he is a trim but hearty man thanks to daily 6 a.m. trips to the “academia” (gym) or the local walking trail. André is a disciplined man. He allows himself a few moments for a light, healthy breakfast before walking to his office. On Monday and Wednesday nights, his routine includes intensive English language lessons. Tuesday nights are spent in Rotary meetings, and every Friday, you’ll find him at church for Bible study. His high-rise apartment is somewhat small, but is

a place where guests are warmly received. I know, because André is my current host, providing me a warm bed, food, shower, and most importantly, the warmth of friendship in the sprawling city of Curitiba. Developing friendships with larger-than-life characters like André and Ken is a welcome part of my responsibilities this month with GSE. The program is a cultural and vocational exchange allowing young professionals to experience another country’s customs and institutions, observe how a given vocation is practiced abroad, develop relationships and exchange ideas. I am now in the thick of my four-week tour, which generally includes five days of vocational visits, 15 to 20 presentations to local Rotary clubs, 10 to 15 formal visits and social events, two or three days at a Rotary District Conference, three to four hours per day of cultural

and site tours, and three to four hours per day spent with one of several host families. The GSE program is incredibly valuable. We live in an age of increasing tolerance for ethnic and cultural diversity, but we are called to do much more than simply tolerate each other’s differences. Growth happens when we explore these differences, question them, celebrate them as the beautiful things that they are. Friendship develops when we embrace our common humanity, as well as our differences. “You are now a citizen of the world,” Ken says. “Welcome to the club.” I somehow knew all along that a citizen of the world is what I was destined to be.

grand scheme of things, family is paramount.” “Family is what gives us meaning in our lives, and I know that my grandfather and father would be very proud of all of you, and so am I.” Aside from Eberly, student responses were heard from Ronald Simon and Emily Marchewka, who each graduated with highest distinction. Simon, who earned an associate degree in electrical engineering technology, acknowledged

all of the graduates who have juggled the student life as well as having a family or a full-time job. “Many of you have families, full-time jobs and other obligations and I want to applaud you all for the hard work and dedication it has taken each of you to get to this point.” Simon also commended families and friends for being supportive of the graduates as they’ve worked hard to obtain

their goals. Marchewka, who earned a Bachelor of Science degree in human development and family studies, urged grad uates not to forget the memories they’ve made during their years at Penn State Fayette. Of the nearly 200 graduates, two students graduated with highest distinction, six graduated with high distinction and eight others walked across the stage with distinction honors.

Attorney Meghann Mikluscak said after discussions with the victim and the investigating officer on the case, the district attorney’s office was satisfied with Bell pleading guilty to the corruption charge alone. According to police, Bell first contacted the teen through social media, and they later exchanged cellphone numbers and started sending text messages. Police alleged Bell sent the teen two sexually explicit photos of himself and one video of him performing a sex act. The girl also sent photos of herself to Bell, police

said. When police interviewed Bell, he told them that he was drinking when he swapped photos with the girl, and may have sent her a video, but could not remember. Months before Bell was charged with “sexting,” he was admitted to the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program for six months for driving under the influence of alcohol and other summary offenses. Bell, court records alleged, was involved in a Jan. 26, 2011, accident in Bullskin Township, and his blood-alcohol was

over .16 percent. That’s twice the legal limit for driving under the influence of alcohol in Pennsylvania. One of the conditions of the program, generally for first-time, non-violent offenders, is that they not engage in any additional criminal activity. A judge found Bell violated that condition when he was again arrested for drunken driving in Allegheny County on Nov. 19 — his birthday. Bell served a brief jail sentence in Fayette County Prison earlier this year before being released on parole.

MEMORIAL BLOOD DRIVE Saturday, May 11, 2013 10:00 am to 3:00 pm Footedale VFD - Social Hall

501 Footedale Road, New Salem, PA 15468 On July 4, 2011, Lou DeFrank noticed he was having double vision. After a visit to the local emergency room the next day, his world, as well as his wife, Deb’s, was turned upside down: A tumor in his sinus cavity was discovered. Two weeks later, neurosurgeons at Allegheny General Hospital attempted to remove the tumor, but is was bleeding too much. They were able to get a sample to send to the lab, and it was discovered the tumor contained cancer cells. After several tests, Lou was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Following his diagnosis, Lou received several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. The ultimate goal was to have a stem cell transplant, but every time his cancer numbers were down and he would be pretested for the transplant, a problem would arise; another tumor, kidney stones and a case of shingles. He never made it to transplant. Over the Christmas holidays, Lou developed lung problems and his health deteriorated. He slipped away in his sleep on February 22, 2013, with Deb, his wife of 36 years, at his side. Lou was a strong family man and a loving father to his two sons, Doug and Adam. His daughter-in-law, Miranda, future daughter-in-law, Heather, and godchild, Casey, all held special places in his heart. He was looking forward to Adam’s wedding in June. He was a member of the First Christian Church of New Salem and served his community by joining the Footedale Volunteer Fire Department at the age of 16. He held several offices in the organization but was most proud of the past 26 years, during which he served as fire chief. Lou never hesitated to help someone, no matter the time or place. Even when he needed blood to combat his own illness, he felt he was taking it from someone else who may have needed it more. Over the years, he gave so much of himself. Let’s use this blood drive as a way to give back in his honor. Central Blood Bank is the not-for-profit organization that supplies the blood products and transfusion-related services to approximately 40 hospitals in western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia and eastern Ohio.

For the Herald-Standard

POINT MARION— Council accepted a $30,000 tourism grant from the Pennsylvania Environmental Council at the regular monthly meeting. Borough Manager Art Strimel said he was happy to announce the grant, because the borough plans to use $25,000 of the funds to put towards the construction of the Sheepskin Rail Trail. The trail will connect Point Marion to Morgantown, and eventually, to the Great Allegheny Passage in Connellsville when completed. Construction for the trail is expected to begin next year. The remaining $5,000 will be used in the Point Marion Community Park for trimming trees and planting new trees, Strimel said. In other business, council voted to purchase a new fuel tank in the amount of $580. The fuel tank is needed for the Fourth Avenue

pumping station generator. Strimel said the previous fuel tank is leaking, and council opted to purchase a new one. In a non-related matter, Strimel said the borough still has not heard back from PennDOT concerning permits needed in order to move forward with the borough’s $2.4 million water line replacement project. At council’s April 17 meeting, Steven Buchannan of Alpha Associates Inc. of Morgantown, W.Va., the borough engineer, told council that he received additional comments from PennDOT, for the third time, on the plan. Once the plan is approved, the borough can start to bid the project out for contract. “We should hear back from PennDOT hopefully by the next meeting,” said Strimel. The additional lines will be installed on Stewartstown Road, where the project left off late last spring.

From there, lines will be installed to make a loop around Morgantown, Penn, Main and Broadway streets. The project began on Aug. 22, 2011 and is expected to be done by the end of this summer. In other matters, Point Marion’s annual spring clean-up will be Friday, May 17, and residents may begin to set items out on May 15 and 16. Construction materials, paint, household hazardous waste, used motor oil and petroleum products will not be picked up. Other items may be picked up for a small fee including large electronics such as televisions and computers for $5, small electronic items such as radios for $1 and large steel appliances for $2. Passenger and light tires will also be accepted. Fayette County’s Hardto-Recycle drop off event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at the fairgrounds. In other matters:

The next borough council meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 15 in the borough building. n The 34th Annual Albert Gallatin Regatta will be May 25 and 26, coinciding with Memorial Day weekend.

For her community service efforts, Lacombe has been awarded the Fayette County Community Service All-Star Award. She’s among nine local students being honored for putting forth an extra effort to make a difference in their communities.

Yantko said the sweeper broke down April 30, after “a lot of previous break downs.” Last year, the township spent $5,000 on repairs for the sweeper in addition to purchasing new hydraulic pumps and hoses. “It’s just been nickel and diming us, plus all the time and labor put into it,” said Yantko. “It’s time for an upgrade.” In other business,

supervisors announced a special meeting to be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 6 in the township’s municipal building before the regular meeting. The meeting will be to hear testimony about a rezoning matter for a subdivision. The matter concerns 33.7 acres of land, which J.D. Ewing wants to be converted from being zoned as suburban residential to light industrial.

Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Carlos Marmol, right, reacts as he talks with catcher Welington Castillo after walking two batters and hitting another during the eighth inning against the Cincinnati Reds in Chicago on Saturday.

Cubs blow another lead, lose 6-4 Carlos Marmol implodes in 8th inning, allows 3 runs CHICAGO (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds were watching when Carlos Marmol came on to pitch the eighth inning, and they knew exactly what to do. It pays to be patient when the erratic right-hander is on the mound. Marmol walked two guys and hit another batter before he was pulled, and Cincinnati scored four times to rally for a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. “You’ve got to take what they’re giving you, and Marmol had a little tough time out there,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Our guys stayed off some close pitches and were fortunate enough to get the hit when we needed it. But also did a good job of keeping the ball off the ground when we had the bases loaded.” That’s right, Cincinnati had just one hit in the big eighth inning, but that was all it needed to secure its first winning road series of the season. The Reds held on for a 6-5 victory in the opener on Friday when Darwin Barney struck out with the bases loaded to end the game. Alfonso Soriano hit a pair of two-run homers for the Cubs, who have lost four of five. But Soriano’s 31st career multihomer game had an all-toofamiliar end for the veteran slugger. “We have so many games where we’re winning in the

sixth, seventh inning and we give it to the other team,” Soriano said. “I think that’s the difference. ... A game like this we can’t give it away.” Jeff Samardzija pitched six effective innings for Chicago after Shin-Soo Choo homered on the first pitch of the game, and James Russell got three outs before Marmol entered with a 4-2 lead. It was Marmol’s 453rd relief appearance with the Cubs, snapping a tie with Lee Smith for the franchise record. He marked the occasion by walking Zack Cozart on four pitches, walking Joey Votto on a full count and hitting Brandon Phillips to load the bases with no outs. That was enough for manager Dale Sveum, who replaced Marmol with Hector Rondon. The crowd of 36,455 showered Marmol (2-2) with boos as he made his way to the dugout. “Obviously, we know the guys that are out there pitching that have been doing it for a while,” Reds right fielder Jay Bruce said. “Marmol’s tough, but he’s certainly hit or miss, and we took what they gave us and it was enough.” Bruce hit an RBI single and Todd Frazier followed with a sacrifice fly to right, tying it at 4. After Xavier Paul was walked intentionally, pinchhitter Jack Hannahan walked to force home a run and Devin Mesoraco, another pinch hitter, sent another fly ball into right field to give the Reds a 6-4 lead. “Nice team effort,” Frazier said. “Got nine guys up that inning and we manufactured

runs. It wasn’t a big one there.” Logan Ondrusek (2-0) worked the seventh, Jonathan Broxton pitched the eighth and Aroldis Chapman finished for his seventh save. Chapman worked around a one-out walk by Soriano one day after he gave up three runs in a nonsave opportunity. Marmol began the year in the closer’s role, but was demoted after he blew a save opportunity at Atlanta on April 6. He also was in and out of the closer’s spot last year. He had put together 10 consecutive scoreless appearances before this bad outing. “I feel very good and that’s it,” Marmol said. “I didn’t throw strikes today. That’s what happened.” The Cubs wasted a solid start by Samardzija, who settled down after Choo sent a drive over the left-field wall for his seventh career leadoff homer. He allowed two runs, one earned, and four hits while throwing a season-high 111 pitches. Cozart had an RBI single in the third for Cincinnati, but Samardzija retired 11 of his final 13 batters. The right-hander is winless in six starts since he tossed eight scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory at Pittsburgh on opening day. Reds starter Tony Cingrani struggled against the heart of the Cubs’ order. The left-hander hit Anthony Rizzo in the first and Soriano followed with a long drive to left. Rizzo doubled off the wall in center in the third and Soriano hit another shot to left for career homer No. 375.

McCutchen, Mercer blast home runs in Friday night 3-1 victory over Nationals

Burnett, Pirates shut down Nationals PITTSBURGH (AP) — A.J. Burnett doesn’t lead the major leagues in strikeouts. He just wants to and is awful close. “I’m trying to keep up with Yu Darvish, but he’s pretty filthy,” the Pittsburgh Pirates’ ace said of the Texas Rangers’ right-hander. Burnett allowed one run and struck out nine in seven shutout innings, and call-up Jordy Mercer hit a tiebreaking home run to lead the Pirates to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Friday night. Burnett (3-2) gave up five hits and one walk in winning his third straight game after going 0-2 in his first three starts. He also raised his NL-leading strikeout total to 57. Darvish tops the majors with 58.

“Strikeouts are always good to have and I like to put people away,” Burnett said. “There will be some nights where I won’t have many strikeouts, so you take them when you can get them.” Burnett has allowed just five earned runs in 25 innings in his last four starts for an ERA of 1.80. Mercer’s two-run home run off Ross Detwiler (1-3) in the fifth inning put the Pirates ahead 3-1. Mercer was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis before the game when second baseman Neil Walker was placed on the disabled list with a right hand injury. Mercer made his major league debut last season with Pittsburgh and appeared in 42 games, hitting one home run in

68 at-bats. “I am just as excited to be here as last year, but I don’t have the nerves this time,” Mercer said. “I felt a lot more comfortable. I didn’t know if I was even going to be in the lineup until I got here. We were playing in Allentown (Pa.) against Lehigh Valley and they told me to get on a plane to Pittsburgh. It was nice to get a chance to play and even nicer to contribute to a win.” Andrew McCutchen had three hits, including a home run, for Pittsburgh. Leadoff man Starling Marte and Gaby Sanchez added two hits apiece. Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless eighth and Jason Grilli shut out the Nationals in the ninth for his 12th save in as many tries.



U.S. Open winner? Don’t overlook Woods By Mike Dudurich For the Herald-Standard

Associated Press

Phil Mickelson, left, consoles a fan while she is tended to after being struck in the head by Mickelson’s approach shot on the 16th hole during the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., Saturday.

Mickelson, Watney tied for lead CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Phil Mickelson’s ball was just above the edge of the cart path, slightly below his feet, when he decided to hit a hard fade around the trees toward the green. The shot went out-of-bounds and cost him the outright lead Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship, and Mickelson was angry about his decision. He felt he should have hit driver instead of 3-wood. In the group ahead of him, new leader Nick Watney hit a semi-shank with a 6-iron on the par-3 17th, the ball flying toward a hospitality tent. He made double bogey, and pulled his cap over his face when the round was over to hide a mixture of anger and embarrassment. And these were the co-leaders going into the final round at Quail Hollow. A series of blunders in the last hour of the third round shook up the Wells Fargo Championship, and the only consolation for Mickelson and Watney is that they were atop the leaderboard going into a final round that features a forecast of rain. “Every shot is critical. You just can’t throw a bunch of shots away like I did coming down the stretch,” said Mickelson, who also plunked a spectator in the head with his approach on the 16th and made bogey. “I’m fortunate to still be on top.” Mickelson had a 1-over 73, while Watney squandered a solid round with his shank that led to a 71. They were at 8-under 208, one shot ahead of George McNeill, who shot a 72. “I can’t remember the last time I did that in a tournament, so it was a bit unsettling” Watney

said about his shank. “The big picture? I’m tied for the lead, and I would have taken that on Thursday morning.” Even so, what had been shaping up as duel now looks more like a shootout, with a dozen players within three shots of the lead. One of them was Rory McIlroy, who celebrated his 24th birthday by missing seven putts in the 5-foot range or closer. He had a 73 and didn’t lose any ground on the lead. “I think they may have given me a little bit of a birthday present right there,” McIlroy said. “I’m only three back heading into tomorrow, and that’s as good as I could ask for.” John Senden completed his round of 67 some three hours before the leaders finished. Ryan Moore was right behind him with a 68. They were among six players who were tied for fourth, two shots behind. That group included Lee Westwood, who made two birdies and two bogeys in his otherwise boring round of 72. The starting time for Sunday has been moved up because of rain in the forecast, with the final round starting at 6:45 a.m. Given the forecast, Mickelson treated Saturday like the final round in case Sunday — and perhaps even Monday — is a wash and the tournament is reduced to 54 holes. He made a 7-foot par putt on the 18th to tie Watney. “It was some poor play coming down the stretch,” Mickelson said. McIlroy didn’t need to be reminded that it was his birthday. Fans serenaded or shouted to him on just about every hole. If all he wanted was to make some putts, Boy Wonder didn’t get his wish. At times, it became a cruel joke.

Rains stall qualifying, Edwards holds pole TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Steady rain Saturday washed out qualifying at Talladega Superspeedway, where the field was set by practice speeds. It put Carl Edwards on the pole for Sunday’s race, followed by Martin Truex Jr. and Marcos Ambrose. They ran a spirited Friday first practice session because everyone had seen the weather radar and knew the laps might count if qualifying was cancelled. “It was like a heat race out there,” said Edwards. “Everybody was trying to get their fastest lap, and we got ours with like a minute to go. It was pretty exciting.” Ambrose concurred. “We were all driving like idiots in that first practice knowing it was probably going to rain,” he said. Joey Logano will start fourth, followed by Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth. Denny Hamlin will be seventh in his first race since missing four with a compression fracture in a vertebra in his lower back. Hendrick Motorsports drivers Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne round out the top 10 in Sunday’s starting lineup. Hamlin is planning to start the race but get out of his car at some point and let Brian Vickers take over for him. The two practiced the driver exchange on Friday, with Hamlin getting out of the car through a roof hatch and Vickers coming in through a window. They had the exchange down to just over a minute, which they determined would keep

the car on the lead lap if the exchange was made under a caution. “It took us right at one minute every time that we rehearsed it, so we’re going to be plenty fine there,” Hamlin said. “Everything is pretty seamless.” Hamlin could get assistance during the race from good friend Michael Waltrip, who will be making just his second start of the season. It’s likely that Hamlin will drop to the back of the field at the start of the race to try avoid an early accident, but he could also risk falling out of the draft. So it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Waltrip, a fellow Toyota driver, partner with Hamlin to help him stay in the draft until he gets out of the car. Waltrip seemed to foreshadow that Saturday when discussing his race plan. “Quite honestly, for the first 100 miles or so, I won’t be aggressive at all because it’s just a matter of getting in the flow and getting back to what you know you know how to do so well,” Waltrip said. Waltrip had an opportunity to win Talladega last October until leader Tony Stewart triggered a multi-car accident trying to hold off the field. It collected Waltrip, who turned 50 this week and only runs restrictor-plate races anymore. His last win was at Talladega in 2003, but he led four laps in the season-opening Daytona 500 and finished 22nd. “When you take off from Daytona until May, there’s so many things you need to orientate yourself with,” Waltrip said.

If you are one of those folks who enjoys placing the occasional “for entertainment only” wager on big sporting events, I have an early tip for you. When it comes time to make your picks for the U.S. Open, don’t go too far past the name of one Eldrick “Tiger” Woods. Yes, I know the prevailing wisdom is the Open is the one that least matches Woods’ game. But history does tell us the No. 1 player in the world has won three of the nation’s championships: Pebble Beach (2000), Bethpage Black (2002) and Torrey Pines (2008). And that same wisdom says Woods can’t prosper on a course, historic Merion Golf Club in this case, that will measure less than 7,000 at its longest and might be as short as 6,800-plus yards. And not only is the course small in terms of yards, it’s small in terms of total yardage. Webb Simpson, the defending U.S. Open champion, said he might not use his driver more than five times the entire week. But doesn’t that sort of setup and Simpson’s comments play right into Woods’ wheelhouse? I think it does. Remember the Open Championship in 2006? At the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Woods hit driver one time off the tee, opting instead to hammer the field with a week of three-woods that pierced fairways with a low trajectory and ran forever. He shot the lowest score ever to that point, 270, for the event. I can see Woods using a mixture of 3-woods, 5-woods and hybrids to get around Merion and, as well as he is playing this year, he could dominate. Now, whether a great place like the East Course at Merion, set up to the USGA’s exacting standards, can be dominated is another question altogether. But to me, this is one where Woods should do very well and should get one victory closer to that magical number of 18 majors held by Jack Nicklaus. n I was once again this week disappointed by the reactions of some players on the PGA Tour who whined considerably about some problematic greens at the Quail Hollow Country Club, site of this week’s Wells Fargo Championship. A tough spring growing season has left some trouble spots on the course and officials took the unusual step of resodding sections of a couple greens 10 days before Thursday’s start. So conditions were not exactly perfect, but through two rounds, 35 players had shot rounds in the 60s. These guys are very spoiled and expect everything to be perfect all the time. Hard to imagine Phil Mickelson being the voice of reason, but he told the whiners in an interview that the fact that this tournament is so highly rated, players should give it a pass this year for the less-than-perfect conditions. By the way, nine players withdrew before the start. They don’t have to give specific reasons and most times aren’t totally truthful, but I wouldn’t be shocked to find out that a majority decided not to play because of the conditions. n It’s Players Championship week on the PGA Tour next week. The Players is a big tournament, the purse is big and the TPC at Sawgrass is a big, mean golf course. It’s not the “fifth major” in men’s professional golf as some people think it should be, but it’s a big one. The other thing the Players has become is the unofficial run-up to the U.S. Open, which follows five weeks later. n There are hundreds of very worthwhile charity events across western Pennsylvania every year and while I can’t provide information here about all of those, I’ll try to provide mentions about special ones I become aware of. The Steel City Vets will be holding their first golf outing, July 28 at Quicksilver Golf Club in Midway. The cost to participate is $75 per golfer and that includes 18 holes of golf, cart and picnic. Checks should be made payable to the Veterans Support Foundation. The event gets underway at 8 a.m. n If you have an event or a feature story that might be worthy, send all ideas to Mike Dudurich is a freelance golf writer and hosts The Golf Show on Sports Radio 93.7 The Fan Saturday mornings at 7 a.m.

Bulls say ‘Noah’ to Brooklyn NEW YORK (AP) — Joakim Noah had 24 points and 14 rebounds, Marco Belinelli also scored 24 points and the Chicago Bulls beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-93 on Saturday night in Game 7 of their first-round series. Carlos Boozer added 17 points as the Bulls shook off injuries to two starters and every run the Nets tried to make in the second half to win a Game 7 on the road for the first time in franchise history. They advanced to a second-round series against defending champion Miami that starts Monday night. The Bulls opened a 17-point halftime lead with a rare offensive outburst, and found a way to get big baskets every time the Nets pulled close to win the NBA’s only do-or-die game of the first round. Deron Williams had 24 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Nets. They were trying to become the ninth NBA team to win a series after trailing 3-1. But they had a horrendous first-half defensive performance and Joe Johnson was bad all game on offense, finishing with six points on 2-of-14 shooting, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range. With two starters out again, the Bulls leaned on Noah, who could barely play when the series started but logged 41 minutes and shot 12 of 17, then still had enough energy to climb over the baseline seats for a long embrace with his mother. Noah, who grew up and played in high school here, helped the Bulls spoil the Nets’ first home Game 7 in franchise history at the end of their first season in Brooklyn. They had played only one Game 7 in all their years while they were based in New Jersey, falling at Detroit in 2004. Chicago improved to 1-6 in road Game 7s. Deng, tested for meningitis earlier in the week, was back in the hospital Friday night and unable to travel. Hinrich warm up in hopes of playing before he was ruled out. It didn’t matter to the Bulls, who backed up coach Tom Thibodeau’s vow that they would have no excuses and play well. Coming out ready to work, the Bulls got their first two baskets on offensive rebounds by Boozer and Noah, and they led most of the first quarter before bringing a 29-25 lead to the second on Taj Gibson’s jumper with 0.8 seconds left. It was 40-36 before the Bulls took control with

solid offensive execution and poor Nets defense. Noah had consecutive baskets before seldomused Daequan Cook made a 3-pointer to cap an 11-2 run, and after a basket by Andray Blatche, Boozer, Robinson and Noah ran off the next six points to give Chicago a 57-40 lead as the crowd began to boo. The Bulls capped it with a stunningly easy dunk by Boozer with 1.2 seconds left off an inbounds pass, sending the Bulls to the locker room with a 61-44 advantage. Brooklyn burst out of the locker room with a 10-4 run, and back-to-back 3-pointers later in the third period by Gerald Wallace kicked off an 11-2 surge that got the Nets within 69-65 on Williams’ free throw with 5:29 left. Jimmy Butler hit a 3-pointer and Robinson scored to steady the Bulls and push the lead back to nine, and they led 82-75 after three. The Nets opened the fourth with just one point in the first five minutes as consecutive baskets by Boozer pushed the lead back into double digits. The Nets kept trying to get back in it, getting it all the way down to four on a 3-pointer by Williams with 26 seconds left, but Belinelli hit four free throws from there.

Deng, Hinrich absent Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich missed Game 7 of Chicago’s series against the Brooklyn Nets, leaving the Bulls without two starters as they tried to avoid losing a series they led 3-1. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Deng remained hospitalized in Chicago with an illness and was unable to travel for Saturday night’s game. The starting forward was tested for meningitis this week and Thibodeau said the team was still waiting for results. Hinrich missed his third straight game with a bruised left calf. He had done little besides shooting over the last couple of days before trying to warm up Saturday night, and Thibodeau said the point guard was “not quite there.” Nate Robinson and Marco Belinelli started for the Bulls. Hinrich, his lower leg wrapped in ice, said during the morning shootaround that if there was any way he could play, he would give it a try. The Bulls had missed his defense against Nets point guard Deron Williams after Hinrich was hurt last Saturday while helping the Bulls rally to win Game 4.

NHL playoffs

Green’s goal gives Capitals 1-0 win

WASHINGTON (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist and Braden Holtby kicked, swiped, caught and otherwise kept getting in the way of the puck, matching each other save-for-save for a second shy of 68 minutes, until Mike Green scored the power-play goal in overtime that gave the Washington Capitals a sweep at home to open their playoff series against the New York Rangers. Green nailed a one-timer from high in the slot on a feed from Mike Ribeiro precisely at the eight-minute mark of the extra period, Holtby made 24 saves for his first career playoff shutout, and the Capitals beat the Rangers 1-0 Saturday to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference playoffs. With Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh in the penalty box for delay of game, having lifted the puck over the glass in New York’s defensive zone, the Capitals took advantage of their first power play since the first period. Ribeiro faked a slap shot, and then pushed the puck to Green, who beat Lundqvist to the glove side. Game 3 is Monday in New York. Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers. Holtby has The Flash Under-17 volleyball team from Penn Highlands won three tournaments recently.

This is the third Rangers-Capitals series in three years, and five of those 14 games have required extra time to decide a winner. The Capitals are more offensively minded this year under first-time coach Adam Oates, but the Rangers were able to mostly corral regular season goal-scoring leader Alex Ovechkin and the rest of Washington’s high-powered attack, tightening up the defense and taking fewer penalties than in Game 1.

Ducks 4, Red Wings 0 DETROIT — Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim on a secondperiod power play — 18 seconds after Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader was ejected for a violent hit on Toni Lydman — and the Ducks went on to a 4-0 victory Saturday night to take a 2-1 series lead over the Red Wings in the Western Conference playoffs. Abdelkader appeared to catch Lydman square in the side of the head with his left shoulder, and he was given a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct with 4:49 remaining in the second. The Ducks immediately took advantage when Bonino backhanded a shot past goalie Jimmy Howard from point-blank range.

Frazier keeps playoff hopes alive By Kevin Harrison For the Herald-Standard

PERRYOPOLIS — The Frazier Commodores kept their playoff hopes alive in Section 2-A Friday afternoon coming from behind to beat the Geibel Catholic Gators 15-5 in five innings. The Commodores (5-5, 7-8) got off to a slow start watching the Gators take a 3-0 lead in the top of the second inning. The Gators (1-9, 1-12) got a basesloaded walk from Brandon Kushnar to bring home the first run, then Nick Speeney singled to drive in two more. “We came out very sluggish today and had to give them a pep talk to remind them of what they needed to do,” Frazier’s Craig Kordich said. “Hitting is contagious. Once we started putting the ball in play things started happening.” Frazier came back in the bottom half of the inning with

eight runs. The big blow came from Jamie Fell on a two-run homer. Travis Sanner, Nick Smalich and Jared Rebovich had RBI singles, while Zach Mastowski drove in a run with a double. Roger Cline grounded to second to drive in another run and Hunter Clay scored on an error. Frazier increased its lead to 9-3 with another run in the third. Cline was safe on an error. He moved to third on an error on a pickoff attempt and scored on a wild pitch. The Gators got a run back in the fourth. Kushnar singled and moved to third on a single from Speeney and scored on an error when Speeney tried to steal second. “It’s the same story for us. We’re young but we learned a lot this year which will help us next year,” Geibel’s Pete Nace said. “We’re starting to improve. Every day we improve

on something different. The kids played hard the whole game today, I’m happy with that.” Frazier regrouped to add six more runs in the bottom of the fourth. Fell drew a walk to start off the inning and took advantage of three passed balls to score. Masowski had an RBI single and also managed to score on a wild pitch. Blake Herron, Rebovich and Clay all drove in runs to increase the Fraizer lead to 15-4. “I don’t know if we were pressing early or felt that we could sleepwalk through the game. I’m glad we were able to put some things together and got the job done,” Kordich said. “We made the point of we’re in this game to do what we need to do and now we’ve got to wait.” For the Commodores to make the playoffs it will take a Monessen loss to Bishop Canevin next week.

Josh Luko went the distance, and had a pair of singles to lead California to a 10-2 Section 1-A victory Friday afternoon over visiting Jefferson-Morgan. California sits in third place in the section at 6-3, improving to 12-5 overall. The Rockets (10-3) finish in second place with an 8-2 section mark. California closes the section schedule Monday with the completion of a suspended game with Carmichaels. The Rockets scored two runs in their first at-bat, but California countered with six runs in the bottom of the first. The Trojans added single runs in the third and fourth innings, and finished the scoring with two runs in the bottom of the sixth. Luko scattered five hits, striking out 13 and walking two. The Trojans’ Chris Swartz had the lone extra-base hit with a double.

Hempfield 10, Albert Gallatin 0 Hempfield scored early and often as the Spartans shutout Albert Gallatin 10-0 to clinch at least a share of the Section 2-AAAA title. Tyler Tubbs pitched a one hitter and struck out 10 over the necessary five innings to give his squad the victory. Tubbs gave up only a leadoff single to Albert Gallatin’s Tyler Dubovich in the bottom of the first inning and then retired the next 15 batters in a row. Joey DeFloria and Jeff Livengood each had a home run for Hempfield. Tyler Dubovich only lasted two and two-thirds innings as he allowed nine runs on eights hits and two walks. Jamal Palmer finished up the game and fared much better allowing only a single run on three hits and striking out three.

PGC seeks input on peregrine falcon plan By Pennsylvania Game Commission

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is seeking public input on its draft peregrine falcon management plan, which can be reviewed on the agency’s website ( by clicking on the “Peregrine Falcon Management Plan” icon on the homepage. Public comments on the peregrine management plan will be accepted until May 29 through the website; an email address –; or by U.S. Mail to: Peregrine Falcon Management Plan, Pennsylvania Game Commission, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110-9797. “We are seeking public comment on the peregrine falcon management plan to ensure the final management plan considers all meaningful input and concerns about this species put forth by Pennsylvanians,” said Calvin W. DuBrock, Game Commission Bureau of Wildlife Management director.

“As written, the plan is sciencebased, progressive and promotes responsible management of peregrine falcons. We’re interested in hearing from Pennsylvanians who would like to offer comments, and to see if we’ve missed something or if they share our management vision for the future.” Developed by biologists with the agency’s Wildlife Diversity Division, the peregrine falcon management plan establishes management goals through 2021. The mission of this plan is to restore peregrines to their ecological role, maintain a self-sustaining population and provide the public with the opportunity to enjoy them. “The criteria to consider peregrines recovered is a selfperpetuating nesting population of at least 22 pairs with a productivity rate of at least 1.5 fledglings per nesting pair and half of nests successful over a three-year period,” said Dan Brauning , Wildlife Diversity Division chief and co-author of the management plan.

Donielle Rohaley, 11, of Uniontown, shot her first turkey near Jackson’s Farm on April 27. The bird had a 9-inch beard.

State creates 2nd DMA HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Game Commission has established the state’s second Disease Management Area in parts of four counties in response to three hunter-killed deer that tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease. Through an executive order, PGC Executive Director Carl G. Roe has created the state’s second Disease Management Area (DMA) in parts of Bedford, Blair, Cambria and Huntingdon counties. The first, in Adams and York counties, was established by executive order in October, 2012. Within these DMAs, there are special restrictions for people to minimize the risk of spreading CWD. The executive order sets in place a variety of restrictions, including the following: it is illegal to remove or export highrisk cervid parts from DMAs; all cervids killed in the DMAs are subject to testing by PGC; cervids within the DMAs cannot be rehabilitated, including injured and reportedly orphaned deer; the use or possession of cervid urine-based attractants is prohibited in DMAs; direct or indirect feeding of wild, freeranging deer is illegal in DMAs; no new PGC permits will be issued to possess or transport live cervids.



Islanders rally past Penguins to even series PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kyle Okposo’s first career playoff goal with 7:37 remaining lifted the New York Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night, evening their playoffs series at one game each. Matt Moulson, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, who spoiled Sidney Crosby’s comeback from a broken jaw by rallying from an early twogoal deficit. Crosby scored twice in the game’s first eight minutes as the Penguins raced to a quick 3-1 lead. But they couldn’t hold it as the Islanders bounced back from a lifeless performance in Game 1. Evgeni Nabokov overcame a sluggish start to stop 30 shots as the Islanders won their first playoff game in more than six years. Marc-Andre Fleury made 38 saves for Pittsburgh, which allowed the speedy Islanders to effectively counterpunch all night. Game 3 is Sunday in New York. It wasn’t exactly the triumphant return the Penguins expected after doctors cleared Crosby to play after missing more than a month. Pittsburgh crushed the Islanders 5-0 in the opener Wednesday, and Crosby’s addition to the lineup figured to make the task for the eighth-seeded Islanders more daunting. Instead, it only seemed to fire up New York. Though the Penguins raced to a quick lead behind Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the young Islanders kept attacking. The result was the franchise’s first playoff victory since April 14, 2007. Coach Jack Capuano told

Associated Press

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby (87) digs the puck out of the corner as New York Islanders’ Andrew MacDonald (47) watches during the second period of Friday’s first-round playoff series. The Islanders won Game 2 to even the series at 1-1.

his players after the debacle in the opener all it took was a bounce here or there to get back in it. The bounce came in the third period, when Okposo fired a shot wide of the net that caromed back to the crease, then rolled off Fleury and across the goal line. The Penguins couldn’t muster much in return, and the Islanders spilled over the boards after toppling the Eastern Conference’s top seed as a solemn crowd trudged to

the exit. The end played in stark contrast to the beginning, when the building erupted the moment Crosby skated onto the ice before pregame introductions. The place only grew louder when he hopped over the boards for the first time in over a month. It helped that Malkin had already staked Pittsburgh to a 1-0 lead 43 seconds into the game when he poked in his own rebound over a sprawled Nabokov.

Crosby, who has shown a flair for the dramatic in his comebacks from lengthy layoffs, did not provide any magic on his first shift. Instead, he waited for his second. Standing all alone on the post, Crosby tapped in a simple pass from Jarome Iginla to make it 2-0 before the game was four minutes old. The Islanders cut the lead in half when Matt Moulson chipped a power-play goal past Fleury 7:04 into the period, but the momentum

lasted all of 18 seconds. That’s how long it took for the Penguins to win the next faceoff and have Crosby skate behind the net, then roof a shot by Nabokov from just above the goal line. Yet the Islanders, unlike in Game 1, did not pack it in. Even as the Penguins were scoring, New York continued to generate quality opportunities of its own. In the second period, those opportunities turned into goals.

Expanded oversight demanded

Inspections increase, violations decrease BY STEVE FERRIS

State inspections of Marcellus shale natural gas wells such as the well in the photo at left in Franklin Township have increased over the last few years, but the number of violations has decreased.

David Headley of Springhill Township, carrying a sign and speaking into microphone, and his wife, Linda (left), participate in a rally outside of the state Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Pittsburgh office on Earth Day, April 22. The rally was one of six held at DEP offices across the state that day to urge the DEP to increase oversight of the Marcellus shale natural gas industry.

Well compliances reported BY STEVE FERRIS

Compliance reports from state Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Bureau of Oil and Gas Management inspections of unconventional Marcellus and conventional natural gas wells offer a glimpse of how the state oversees the industry. Most reports say whether DEP inspectors went to the wells for routine or well-completion inspections or in response to complaints, incidents or spills reported by property owners and operators. Some details about the violations inspectors encountered also are provided in most of the reports.

However, one report about a brine discharge, which was caused by cows knocking a cap off a tank at a gas well in German Township and resulted in a fine, did not identify the well operator. The only inspection conducted this year in Fayette County was a routine inspection at a conventional well operated by The Production Co. in German Township on Jan. 16. The DEP issued a notice of violation for failing to restore the site within nine months of completing the well. The well was completed on July 28, 2011, but the site had unlined and unstabilized storage pits, according to a DEP compliance report. The violation was resolved in March and no

fine was assessed, according to the report. Last year, the DEP assessed five fines for violations found during inspections. An unnamed well operator was fined $4,000 after 19 barrels of brine spilled when cows knocked the drain cap off a tank at a conventional well in German Township on July 23. The DEP assessed a $1,000 fine against Oil and Gas Management Inc. for failing to report the completion of a conventional well in German Township within 30 days following a March inspection. An $800 fine for a similar violation was assessed against The Production


An increase in inspections of Marcellus shale natural gas wells across the state has resulted in fewer violations, which indicates that drillers are doing a better job of complying with regulations, a state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) official said. The pattern of more inspections and fewer violations holds true locally, but more wells are now being inspected in Fayette County than in Greene County, even though Greene County has more than twice the number of wells. In Fayette County, two violations were found during 194 inspections of 71 unconventional wells in 2010; 17 violations were reported during 604 inspections of 113 wells, and 11 violations were found in 642 inspections of 160 wells last year, according to the DEP’s Bureau of Oil and Gas Management compliance reports. As of Wednesday, no violations were found in 209 inspections of 126 wells. There are 308 Marcellus wells in the county. Violations found at all natural gas wells in Fayette County resulted in seven fines in 2010; eight fines in 2011; five fines last year and none so far this year. In Greene County, 25 violations were found during 344 inspections of 148 unconventional wells in 2010; 15 violations were

reported in 324 inspections of 189 wells, and 13 violations were found in 514 inspections of 281 wells last year. So far this year, nine violations were found in 166 inspections of 132 wells. There are 676 Marcellus wells in the county. Violations found at all wells in Greene County resulted in five fines in 2010; six fines in 2011; three fines last year and none so far this year. Statewide, 1,277 violations were found during 5,244 inspections of 2,001 unconventional well in 2010; 1,216 violations

were reported during 10,521 inspections of 3,930 wells in 2011, and 712 violations were found in 12,572 inspections of 4,841 wells in 2012. As of Wednesday, 260 violations were found during 4,272 inspections of 2,624 wells. “We saw a decrease in violations in unconventional wells, meaning the performance by operators has been improving,” said DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday. “They’re improving their site management practices, being more responsible about

(BUSINESS WIRE) — EQT Corp. has signed an agreement to buy 99,000 net acres in southwestern Pennsylvania and 10 horizontal Marcellus shale natural gas wells in Washington County from Chesapeake Energy Corp. and its partners for about $113 million, subject to closing conditions. The acreage includes 67,000 Marcellus acres and 32,000 dry Utica acres. Of the total purchase price, $60 million is allocated to the undeveloped acreage, while the remaining $53 million is for the

existing Marcellus wells. The transaction is expected to close on May 30, 2013. The acquisition includes about 25,000 acres within EQT’s core Marcellus development areas of Washington, Greene and Allegheny counties. The remaining 42,000 Marcellus acres are unlikely to be developed. Three of 10 the Marcellus wells are producing, and the remaining seven will start producing by the end of the year. Upon close of the transaction, EQT anticipates drilling four wells on the new acreage this year.

gallons of diesel fuel near Willard Bay OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A pipeline that leaked 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel near northern Utah’s Willard Bay State Park has passed a federally mandated pressure test required to make it fully operational again. The pipeline owned by a subsidiary of Chevron Corp. extends from Salt Lake City to Spokane,

Wash. Chevron Pipe Line Co. spokesman Gareth Johnstone says the company hopes to resume operations at reduced capacity Saturday. The 8-inch pipeline is required to hold 2,600 pounds per square inch of water for 30 minutes, but it failed after six minutes during Monday’s initial test. Gareth says another test Thursday secured the necessary permission from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to place the line back in service. The pipeline failed March 18, spilling diesel fuel into the ground and marshes.

Two $500 fines were assessed against Triana Energy, but only one has been paid, for failing to file a well completion report for an unconventional well in Wharton Township in January. The DEP issued a notice of violation to Atlas Resources after the company reported a brine spill at a conventional well in Washington Township in November. Atlas received two notice of violations for improperly storing residual waste at a conventional well in Nicholson Township in July 9. DEP inspectors found a hole near the bottom of a 100-barrel brine tank at a conventional well operated by Atlas in Springhill Township d ur in g a r o ut i ne i nspection in June. A water line inside the dike around the tank and dead vegetation outside the dike indicated brine had escaped, according to the compliance report. “They used new stone to cover up stain residue left behind from brine release,” the report states. Atlas verified that brine had been released and started the cleanup and tank removal. The report notes two violations, including failure to report a brine release within two hours, but indicates that no notices of violations or

fines were issued. A brine tank overflowed at a conventional well operated by Atlas in Nicholson Township, and brine spread into a hayfield where it killed vegetation in November. A notice of violation, but no fine, was issued. Atlas received a notice of violation, but no fine, for failing to restore an unconventional well site in Menallen Township within nine months of completion of drilling in October. Restoration should have been completed in May, the DEP said. The DEP responded to an unconventional well in German Township after Chevron reported that 300 gallons of produced water spilled but was contained on the well pad on July 3. A notice of violation was issued, but no fine was assessed. After responding to a complaint about a coal bed methane well operated by Keyrock Energy in Dunbar Township, DEP inspectors said two rig

waste and water management and getting closer to the world-class performance we expect.” Inspections of unconventional wells has increased 150 percent over the last several years, he said. The procedure for issuing notices of violations from inspections was revised in 2011 following a review. Administrators in the DEP’s central office in Harrisburg looked at all the violations issued from mid-January through late June to determine whether regulations were being enforced consistently by staff in the Southwest, Northwest and North Central regional offices, which are located in oil and gas development areas. “As a result, we established a standard water quality inspection form and more training for violation codes and how to enter them into the database. There was some inconsistency on how things were entered,” Sunday said.

hands verified that equipment failure caused a lubricator and sand pump to fall over a fence and release brine onto the ground on May 22. Maximum Well Service was servicing the well when the incident occurred, according to the report. Two violations, including failure to report a brine release within two hours, were noted in the report, but no notice of violations or fines were issued. Chevron was issued a notice of violation, but no fine, after the DEP responded to a report of a hole in a pit liner at an unconventional well in Dunbar Township in February. A follow-up inspection found another problem with the pit, and the DEP issued another notice of violation but no fine. Chevron reported a hole in a pit liner at an unconventional well in Luzerne Township on March 14. The DEP noted three violations but issued no notice of violations or fines.

Responding to a complaint, the DEP found three erosion-control violations at an unconventional well operated by Chevron in German Township in March but issued no notice of violations or fines. The DEP assessed eight fines in 2011 and seven fines in 2010 for violations at well sites. In Greene County, DEP inspectors reported nine violations at wells but haven’t issue any fines so far this year. Of the three fines issued last year, two were given to CNX Gas Co. The $37,500 and $7,500 fines were assessed for separate incidents in which pollution was discharged into

14.1 million, a 2 percent increase from March 2012. Egg production in February totaled 557 million, down 5 percent from the 585 million in February 2012. The total number of layers averaged 24.9 million during February, down 2 percent from last year. Production per 100 layers was 2,237 eggs during the month, a decrease of 76 from February 2012. Broiler-type chicks hatches totaled 12.5 million, a 4 percent decrease from February 2012.

The review did not result in hiring additional inspectors. The number of inspectors increased to 83 after more were hired in 2009 and 2010. The Southwest Regional Office has 28 inspectors covering Fayette, Greene, Washington, Westmoreland, Somerset, Beaver, Allegheny, Armstrong, Indiana and Cambria counties. “The same amount of inspectors are doing more work. We’ve gotten to a more consistent approach. That’s helped us get better performance out of the drillers,” Sunday said. Improved compliance among drillers has reduced the need to issue fines for violations, but the DEP will issue fines when they are warranted, he said. He pointed to the $1 million fine the DEP imposed on Chesapeake Energy in 2011 after methane from a company well migrated into 16 residents’ water wells in Bradford County and for a tank fire in Washington County. Act 13 of 2012, which established impact fees, tripled the amount of the fine the DEP can asses, he said. “We’ve made it clear that we’ll take strong action where ever needed,” Sunday said.

CNX was fined $37,500 for another discharge into a waterway; EQT Corp. was fined $19,250 for discharging pollution into a waterway; Chief Oil and Gas was fined $4,750 for a residual waste spill on a well pad; Tanglewood Exploration was fined $4,500 for not filing a well completion report; Energy Corporation of America was fined $3,000 for not filing a well completion report, and Sylvan Energy was fined $500 for not filing a well completion report. In 2010, five fines

were issued, and 32 violations were reported following 17 inspections of 16 wells. The largest fine, $15,000, was issued to Tanglewood for an unidentified violation of the state Clean Stream Law. CNX received two fines, $6,750 and $4,500, for improperly built impoundments at separate wells and improperly handling of industrial or residual waste at one of the wells. Energy Corp. was fined $5,750 after surface escaped a well pad and entered a stream, and EQT was fined $4,500 after production fluids escaped a pit and left the work site.

PepsiCo cuts ties with Lil Wayne over crude lyrics Controversy erupted after reference to Emmett Till NEW YORK (AP) — PepsiCo is bowing to public pressure for the second time in a week and cutting ties with Lil Wayne over the rapper’s crude lyrical reference to civil rights martyr Emmett Till. Lil Wayne, one of the biggest stars in pop music, had a deal to promote the company’s Mountain Dew soda. Earlier this week, PepsiCo also pulled an online ad for the neon-colored soda that was criticized for portraying racial stereotypes and making light of violence toward women. That ad was developed by rapper Tyler, the Creator. On Friday, PepsiCo said in a statement that Wayne’s “offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand.” It declined to provide any further comment. A publicist for Lil Wayne, Sarah Cunningham, said that the split was due to “creative differences” and that it was an amicable parting. “That’s about all I can tell you at this time,” she said. Wayne had sent the Till family a letter offering empathy and saying that he would not reference Till or the family in his music, particularly in an inappropriate manner. But the Till family said the letter fell short of an apology. “It’s mindboggling to me that they partnered with him in the first place,” said the Rev. Wheeler Parker Jr., a Till cousin and witness to his abduction. “Major corporations should scrutinize who they endorse, don’t let greed or money determine who you sponsor.” Parker’s written statement said Wayne’s lyrics not only insulted Till’s memory but

In this Feb. 1 photo, recording artist Lil Wayne meets fans and celebrates his contemporary streetwear apparel brand TRUKFIT at his hometown Macy’s, in New Orleans. A letter from Lil Wayne to the offended family of Emmett Till did not go far enough, and relatives of the late civil rights icon are seeking a meeting with the rapper and representatives from PepsiCo to discuss their commercial partnership. The New Orleans rapper made the brief offensive reference to Till on Future’s song “Karate Chop” earlier this year.

degraded women as well. Rev. Al Sharpton, who had been working with the Till family to arrange a meeting with Lil Wayne and PepsiCo officials, said in a telephone interview that he hopes the decision ultimately is less about punishing individual rappers and more a cultural “teaching moment.” “Otherwise we’re just waiting on the next train crash instead of trying to really resolve our problem and learn from these experiences and set a tone in the country that’s healthy for everybody,” he said. Sharpton said that he and the Till family still plan to meet with PepsiCo officials next week. The controversy erupted after Wayne made the reference to Till on Future’s song

“Karate Chop” earlier this year. He refers to a violent sexual act on a woman and says he wants to do as much damage as was done to Till. The black teen from Chicago was in Mississippi visiting family in 1955 when he was killed, allegedly for whistling at a white woman. He was beaten, had his eyes gouged out and was shot in the head before his

assailants tied a cotton gin fan to his body with barbed wire and tossed it into a river. Two white men, including the woman’s husband, were acquitted by an all-white jury. Till’s body was recovered and returned to Chicago where his mother, Mamie Till, insisted on having an open casket at his funeral. The pictures of his battered

body helped push civil rights into the cultural conversation. Music and media industry executive Paul Porter, who comments on music issues on his website, said he thought PepsiCo’s decision was an effort by the company “to do the right thing now.” Porter, who had complained publicly and to PepsiCo about Lil Wayne and the Mountain Dew video by Tyler, the Creator, said the company is “doing a whole evaluation of the process” involving its commercials and musicians. His comments were based on his conversations with the company. “I commend them for making this strong judgment,” he said. “Lil Wayne’s apology was not an apology.” Earlier this month, Rick Ross also lost his deal with Reebok after he rapped about raping a woman who had been drugged. As for the Mountain Dew ad by Tyler, the Creator, PepsiCo said it pulled the spot immediately after learning people found it offensive. The ad portrayed a battered white woman being urged to identify her

attacker from a lineup of black men and a talking goat that has appeared in other Mountain Dew ads. Tyler, the Creator has noted that the men in the lineup were played by his friends and members of Odd Future, a Los Angeles-based rap collective. __________ Talbott reported from Nashville, Tenn.

‘GH’ celebrates milestone ChopChop top food mag “General Hospital” recently celebrated a milestone anniversary: 50 years on the air. In honor of the momentous occasion, the show was honored with a special gathering at the Paley Center in Los Angeles. Executive producer Frank Valentini, head writer Ron Carlivati and an array of the show’s top stars were on hand to share thoughts and memories of the iconic soap and celebrate its resurgence in the ratings. Cast members raved about the two men at the soap’s helm. ‘’There’s an energy that’s never been there, before Frank and Ron,” said Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie). “They respect the past and are propelling us to the future.” Jason Thompson (Patrick) added that Valentini “is the first person there in the morning and the last to leave at night.” As for the show’s current success, Finola Hughes (Anna) put it best. “We

have great characters on the show and we tell great stories,” she said. “People respond to both of those things. If you honor the characters that you have on a show and you make it sexy and cool and fast and fun and sharp and witty, you’re going to have an audience.” Carlivati revealed that he’d been a “GH” fan for decades, having begun watching at the age of 10. “I think it was when Laura killed David Hamilton,” he shared, adding that he believes his storytelling appeals to viewers because he’s writing “from a fan’s perspective.” Among the memorable storylines discussed were Luke and Laura’s adventures with Helena Cassadine, originally played by film legend Elizabeth Taylor, and Robin being diagnosed with HIV. Kimberly McCullough (Robin), who was 16 when she began playing out the HIV story, admitted not knowing what it really meant at the time, but

understanding how really important it was “not only to entertain, but to make a difference in people’s lives.” Anthony Geary (Luke) recalled working with Taylor. “She was so much fun when she first came on,” he said, recounting an early scene in which she kept mispronouncing Cassadine. “After messing up 14 takes, she said, ‘I’m sorry, folks, I’m just not used to acting.’ She had a great sense of humor.” As for other fond memories of cast mates who have passed away, Geary mentioned John Beradino (ex-Steve Hardy), saying that he thinks of him “every single day” when he is on set. Meanwhile, Jane Elliot (Traci) mentioned her beloved Quartermaine parents, played by the late Anna Lee (ex-Lila) and David Lewis and John Ingle (ex-Edward). “I hate when people say ‘It’s like a family,’” said Elliot, adding that working with that trio “truly was.”

Anthony Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern honored No trendy restaurants. No fancy equipment. No hard-to-find hipster ingredients. The pages of this year’s top food publication don’t read like your average gourmet glossy. That’s because the only trend ChopChop magazine — named publication of the year by the James Beard Foundation on Friday — cares about is how to get America’s children eating healthier. Billed as the “fun cooking magazine for families,” ChopChop was launched in 2010 by cookbook author Sally Sampson to give parents and kids the tools to fight childhood obesity. Though the magazine is available by subscription, one of its primary methods of distribution is by pediatricians giving copies to their patients. The foundation’s awards honor those who follow in the footsteps of Beard, considered the dean of American cooking when he died in 1985. The ceremony was held in New York, where the Beard Foundation is based. Friday’s ceremony honored winners in media and publishing; a separate ceremony on Monday will be held for chefs and restaurants. Earlier this year, tough talking

television chef Anthony Bourdain made news for his jump to CNN. But on Friday, he was honored for his work on public television. His “The Mind of a Chef” was named best on-location television program. Meanwhile, Andrew Zimmern of Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods America” was named outstanding host. The cookbook of the year honor went to Maricel E. Presilla’s massive ode to the food of Latin America, “Gran Cocina Latina.” The 912-page book covers a tremendous swath of cuisines and cultures, explaining the common threads that run through the region’s many foodways. Prolific cookbook author Anne Willan was named to the foundation’s Cookbook Hall of Fame. Willan has written extensively on the foods of France, including the cookbook “The Country Cooking of France,” which won two Beard awards in 2008. In 1975, she founded the Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne cooking school in Paris. In the blogging world, the group food blog award went to DarkRye. com, the edgy web magazine of grocer Whole Foods Market. The site focuses on the blending of food, health, sustainability, design, tech and social enterprise.

Ginseng, bear bile: NKoreans look to old cures PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — The Man Nyon Pharmacy is lined with rows of colorful packages containing everything from dried bear bile and deer antler elixir to tiger bone paste and ginseng. But the ancient “Koryo” medicine provided at this popular dispensary isn’t just for minor aches and pains. It has been integrated into the health system from the smallest village clinic all the way up to the nicest showcase hospitals in the privileged capital of Pyongyang. Both modern and traditional styles of healing have long been uniquely intertwined nationwide with doctors from both schools working in tandem under one roof. North Korean physicians say many patients prefer traditional medicine to the Western kind, but it’s difficult to determine the true situation in this closed and impoverished society where access is limited. Defectors, foreign aid workers and North Koreans agree that many Western drugs are scarce and say villagers still forage for plants in some areas to make their own herbal concoctions. With the U.N. Security Council imposing its toughest-ever sanctions following North Korea’s third nuclear test in February, patients may become even more

dependent on these home-grown remedies in a country of 24 million people where government health spending ranks among the world’s lowest. “Doctors are more interested in Koryo medicine rather than Western medicine because they can get it more easily,” said Ri Hye Yong, who manages the frigid concrete pharmacy opened by the government nearly three decades ago. “It’s much cheaper.” The latest restrictions are meant to squeeze new young leader Kim Jong Un and the ruling class by clamping down on access to foreign travel and luxury goods. North Korea has responded with tirades that include threatening nuclear attacks against the U.S. and its allies. The resolution is not supposed to block donor aid to those who need it most, including the twothirds of the population who don’t have enough to eat. But foreign aid workers say years of limitations have created a maze of red tape and approvals needed to ship in medical supplies and equipment. Some countries refuse to process payments for anything involving North Korea because of restrictions placed on banks, while some foreign companies and organizations simply

do not want to be involved once they learn where the materials are headed. But once the goods arrive, they say the process becomes fairly simple. “Even though the imposed sanctions clearly exclude humanitarian assistance, a negative impact on the levels of humanitarian funding has been experienced,” the U.N. Resident Coordinator’s Office in Pyongyang said in a statement April 29, adding nearly threequarters of the $147 million needed this year has not been received. The World Health Organization is lacking an estimated 60 percent of the drugs it needs for atrisk kids and pregnant women, while the U.N. Children’s Fund is struggling to get vaccines and medicines to prevent the

biggest killer diseases among children, it said. In addition, the WHO says the process of importing essential equipment and medicine has also grown lengthy at all levels, and those involved have become over cautious in clearing materials to ensure they could not be classified as dual purpose or luxurious items. International efforts to help boost the country’s ability to produce its own vaccines and medicines were earlier affected when some technology and seed microbes were halted over concerns they could potentially be used by Pyongyang for malicious purposes, WHO said. Despite these challenges, it’s difficult to understand the full picture within North Korea where outsiders

are banned from traveling freely and data are lacking or unreliable. Suspicion of the outside world is reinforced by huge hospital propaganda paintings depicting Americans and Japanese as the country’s “sworn enemies.” Jang Jun Sang, a department director at the Ministry of Public Health, said in an interview in February that sanctions have cut imports of medical equipment and supplies. But he said North Korea was used to sanctions. “If we receive medical aid, that’s good,” he said. “But if we don’t, that’s fine, too. We’re not worried.” North Korean factories have limited ability to produce pharmaceuticals, and many rural clinics lack electricity, running water

and heating. By the government’s own account, more than 80 percent of village clinics suffer from “chronic shortages of medicines and supplies at all levels of the system.” According to defectors such as Kwon Hyo-jin, some drugs are smuggled in from neighboring China and marketed while others are taken from hospitals and sold illegally. All health care is supposed to be free in North Korea. Kwon said he was forced to buy an IV drip as well as antibiotics, painkillers, and other Western medicines from China after suffering bouts of food poisoning and later while hospitalized with a broken leg in 1997 in the northeastern city of

Chongjin. He recalled a hospital bed swarming with lice and a tap that spewed muddy water and worms. The 52-year-old, who defected to South Korea in 2009 and now works at the Seoul-based Committee for the Democratization of North Korea, said he tried to avoid hospitals in the North altogether. Instead, he visited Koryo doctors usually for upset stomach, back pain and insomnia. Traditional medicine is cheaper and easier to find. Walls of tiny wooden drawers similar to a library card catalog fill one vast room at Pyongyang Medical College, each containing hundreds of tiny paper triangles stuffed with dried herbs. “I think Koryo medicine has mysterious characteristics,” said Dr. Ryu Hwan Su, the hospital’s deputy chief, who proudly displayed a jar filled with a fat ginseng root believed to be more than a century old. “It heals illnesses that Western medicines can’t treat.” Traditional medicine is used widely in many Asian countries, including China, Japan and South Korea, where there is no shortage of modern treatment and equipment. And while scientific research regarding the benefits of some age-old treatments is lacking, therapies such as massage and acupuncture — which can also serve as a local anesthetic — are now widely used in the West. Some North Korean clinics have their own greenhouses, and herbs are harvested every year in the wild to be processed into teas and other concoctions. The government says Koryo medicine is used to treat more than half the patients in rural clinics. But shortages exist too. Patients are often prescribed a simple herb they are expected to get themselves, said Dr. Byungmook Lim, a professor at South Korea’s Pusan National University School of Korean Medicine, who co-authored a study comparing traditional medicine in the two Koreas. The country began marrying traditional

medicine with modern practice in the 1950s after the Korean War. Doctors were given training in Koryo medicine and each hospital was set up with a department devoted to it, with prevention as the guiding concept behind the socialized health plan. Unlike in other Asian countries where the two practices are typically kept separate, traditional practitioners in North Korea can prescribe modern drugs and assist during surgeries, while Western doctors can use Koryo treatments. “We kept talking to each other and consulting each other,” said Kim Jie-eun, who graduated from a Koryo school with some modern training, and practiced in North Korea as a pediatrician and internal medicine doctor before defecting in 1999. She now runs a traditional clinic in Bucheon, South Korea, and recalls that even acupuncture needles were reused in the North. She said frequent shortages of antibiotics meant high-level officials got treated first, while ordinary patients struggled to find medicines. “I was really angry. They were the same human beings,” she said. “How this could happen?” But she believes combining the two types of treatment was actually better for patients. She said Koryo medicine — taken from the old name for Korea — was often used alone or in combination with Western drugs to treat a variety of health problems including stroke, hepatitis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders and diabetes. And it’s still done today. At the new Breast Cancer Research Center at the Pyongyang Maternity Hospital, a showcase institution where The Associated Press was recently taken on a tour, patient Ri Jong Suk said she was set to be released after having a mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. She said during her one-month stay she was given Western medicine along with Koryo treatment, including massage and acupuncture, to help strengthen her immune system, decrease swelling and circulate blood after surgery.

The Health Ministry also cites hot springs, mineral water and mud among successful treatments. Cupping is another popular therapy believed to stimulate blood flow by using heated glass jars to create a vacuum on the skin. Many of these healing techniques are also commonly used in South Korea, which is rooted in the same ancient traditional medicine as its northern counterpart. But in that country, modern and traditional medicines typically operate independently, each with its own licensing and education system. North Korea was once dependent on the Soviet Union to keep its medical system running. But after the collapse of its patron, economic crisis and famine followed in the 1990s and Pyongyang became increasingly isolated amid growing nuclear ambitions.

The government spent nearly $9 billion on defense in 2009, according to the South Korean state-run Korea Institute of Defense Analyses. Pyongyang says it spends $900 million a year on health, but one WHO estimate put government spending at less than $1 per person in 2006. That’s less than $25 million and among the world’s lowest, though other reports have placed it higher. Outside the capital, donors provide some 70 percent of the most needed drugs, which are believed to reach less than half of those in need, according to the WHO. Meanwhile, the U.S. has accused North Korea of manufacturing and trafficking illegal drugs, such as opium and methamphetamine. It also believes the government is likely involved in peddling fake Western pills, such as Viagra.

Koryo medicine was thrust into the international spotlight when five members of the North Korean female soccer team tested positive for steroids at the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany. North Korean officials said the players took traditional musk deer gland as therapy after they were struck by lightning during training. Soccer authorities said they had never seen the substance found in the women’s systems, and the squad was sent home in disgrace. Animal products are a major part of Koryo medicine, along with various traditional healing used in other Asian countries. Deer antler is used to strengthen the immune system, tiger bone to relieve fevers, and bear bile mixed into hot water and sipped to relieve pain and remove toxins. Some concoctions are believed to

enhance virility. Some Asian countries ban bear bile because the method of extraction is considered inhumane. Asked where North Korea gets its bile, pharmacist Ri said it came from the zoo where about 50 bears are housed. AP couldn’t verify this practice and spotted only one bear inside an enclosure at the national zoo in Pyongyang. “Koryo medicine seems to have somehow served the population, which is in desperate need of treatment amid difficulties in health, while the Western health delivery system has been badly affected,” Lim, the South Korean professor, and colleagues wrote in the 2009 paper published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. It was based on a review of North Korean textbooks and medical journals as well as interviews with defectors.


Pack is


If you think fanny packs are a joke, you haven’t been paying attention to the latest fashion news. Fanny packs are trending. Entering pop culture in the 1980s, this accessory has been making a comeback in recent years with new colors, elements and sass. The name may have changed - they are often referred to as belt bags - but the idea is the same: a bag that is strapped around your waist, leaving your hands free. Moms have been big fans for decades. Designers have been creating belt bags for several years with top names such as Gucci, DKNY and Rachel Zoe incorporating them into their Spring 2013 line. Last year, designer Debra Denniston and her daughters, Kate and Rachel, opened a Los Angeles-based company called Hipsters for Sisters that features functional, eco-friendly, cruelty-free - the women are vegetarians - belt bags that are also well designed. A press release from Hipsters for Sisters noted, “In short, the company makes fanny packs, but not the kind one is likely to imagine. Their version, the ‘Hipster,’ made from beautifully soft, faux leathers and high-quality woven fabrics, is more like a chic clutch that hangs from a belt and is just large enough to keep one’s smart phone, wallet and keys literally on her at all times.’’ Debra Denniston noted in the release that she used fanny packs when her daughters, Kate, 25, and Rachel, 22, were in diapers and she had to cart a big diaper bag around. “I used the fanny pack to hold my money and keys, which enabled me to leave the diaper bag unattended as I ran around the park after the kids,’’ Denniston said in

Basket Bonanza

Sympathy cards need to include return addresses Dear Heloise: A friend of mine recently had a death in her family. Many relatives and friends left Mass cards and remembrance cards at the funeral home. Unfortunately, most of the cards had only the person’s name. My friend said she had to spend several hours LOOKING UP NAMES AND ADDRESSES on her computer. My hint is, please, friends and relatives, put your address on the cards. They are supposed to be acknowledged with a thank-you note. It’s just a simple thing, but it’s more helpful than you can imagine. — A Friend of the Family, via email Your hint will help a lot of people. Also, please put a last name down — you’d be amazed how many Tom and Sues or Bill and Janes there are! — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Linda Little sent a photo of her schnauzer, Doc, posing by the water. Doc looks just like my little schnauzer Cabbie, whom I love dearly. To see Doc’s portrait, visit my website at www. and click on “Pets.” — Heloise TENNIS-SHOE HELPER Dear Heloise: My daughter isn’t very fond of having to tie her tennis shoes. Seems she is always in a hurry. So instead of purchasing costly lockingtype shoestrings, which make tie shoes into slip-ons, I recently purchased a handful of “cord locks” on the Internet. They are very inexpensive — a few cents each. These things will look familiar, and they are so easy to use. Just lace the shoe as usual, and slide a cord lock on the ends of both sides of the laces. From there, tie a small knot at the end of

Uniontown Hospital Auxiliary’s annual Basket Bonanza fundraiser will be displayed in the facility’s main lobby from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from May 7 to 17. Baskets have been prepared by local businesses and hospital departments depicting themes including snack time, technology and office, evening at home and more. In addition, a hand-made afghan will also be on display. Tickets are available on-site. Raffle winners will be announced at noon on May 17 in the main lobby. Pictured are Uniontown Hospital Auxiliary’s Basket Bonanza co-chairwomen (from left) Elaine Kozel and Liz Myers.

Heloise the laces, and use the cord lock to slide the laces tighter or looser. It works great and is a great way to make all tie tennis shoes into “slip-ons”! — Susan in Ohio HEARING-AID CLEANING HINT Dear Heloise: My hearing aids have a vent hole, which accumulates wax from wearing. The tool that I was given to clear it out is a thin, plastic, wirelike device that never has been sufficient. One day, I bought some brushes sold for cleaning braces in a person’s mouth. The small, round brush is the perfect length and width to clear out the vent hole. They usually are made of a soft plastic, are washable and are inexpensive. I hope this can help some of your readers! — A.S. in San Antonio HANDY SEAM RIPPER Dear Heloise: I read your column in the (Greenville, Texas) Herald-Banner, and finally have a hint to send in! My co-worker just asked me if I have one of those itty-bitty screwdrivers for eyeglass frames. I checked, but all I had was a seam ripper. She tried it out of desperation, and lo and behold, it worked! Thanks for all the awesome hints you and your readers share! — Sharon D. in New Orleans

Hart: Hormonal birth control and 15-year-olds. Seriously? BY BETSY HART

Our culture has abandoned the protection of our girls. That, of course, has huge implications for the well-being of our boys, too. As a mother of four — including three girls, ages 11, 14 and 16 — few things scare me more. This week, the Food and Drug Administration ruled that girls as young as 15 can get the Plan B One-Step (or so-called morning-after) pill without a prescription, or even having to go to the pharmacy counter. The pills are not designed to abort, but to provide emergency hormonal contraception following unprotected sexual intercourse. A report in a recent edition of the journal Pediatrics says that about 14 percent of teen girls have had sex by their 15th birthday. While some find that number low, I find it shockingly high. In any event, the FDA decision would be silly if it weren’t so serious. These are girls who cannot work without a permit, can’t drive a car by themselves, can’t choose to drop out of school — or, in many cities and towns, avoid a legal curfew. We don’t trust them to make good decisions about any of these things on their own. (By the way, unless a girl brings a passport to the drugstore, she’s not going to have ID to show she’s 15, as school IDs typically show only a girl’s current school year, not a birth date. So

even this ridiculous age “limit” will be abused.) Yet FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said in a statement: “The data reviewed by the agency demonstrated that women 15 years of age and older were able to understand how Plan B One-Step works, how to use it properly, and that it does not prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease.” Are they serious? These young women weren’t responsible enough, if that’s

the right terminology, to use birth control before sex, but we have no worries that they will use it properly afterward? Putting aside the health issues, here’s an even bigger problem: Is it really likely that a 15-year-old girl — a child — is seeking out full sexual intercourse in the first place? Or is it more likely that her fantasies revolve around romance and kissing, petting, being told she’s beautiful and loved? Well, the data backs up

what we know intuitively: According to a Guttmacher Institute report published in late 2011, 60 percent of girls who had first sex at the ages of 15 to 17 either didn’t want it to happen at all or had mixed feelings about it. Sixty percent. For boys in that age range, that number is only 34 percent. That’s still significant, but yes — duh — there’s a difference between men and women, and young men and young women, when it comes to sex.

Ask The Coach H.I.T.S. Teasing, Bullying Hey, Coach! When I grew up, we did not h e a r of the word bullyi n g . T h e Jes Hutson word I was familiar with was teasing. Are these still two separate things or can they be one and the same? Thank you. Signed….Yester-Year Dear Yester-Year: Right up front, surely today the word bullying should be of great concern to everyone. Having said that, the Coach agrees with you and doesn’t have any recollection of the term bullying from back in the day. Yes; we had bullies, but the word bullying was not on the radar. If it was, the Coach doesn’t remember it. Teasing, mocking and making fun of others was what took place several decades ago. If you were suggesting that teasing and bullying could be intertwined today, the Coach would agree that they could. Teasing and making fun of others was simply a sign of immaturity and was somewhat common growing up. Today, things like this should be taken very seriously and should not be tolerated, especially among our youth.

Eyebrows Hey, Coach! I am thinking about getting my eyebrows permanently applied. What do you know about this procedure? Signed…. Eye Liner Dear Eye Liner: Respectfully, it’s obviously a slow week when the Coach takes on a question such as this. While the Coach has seen a few permanent eyebrows, he knows absolutely nothing about this procedure. What he does know is that he has seen some crooked ones; some that are longer on one side; one that is sometimes higher than the other; and sometimes the arches don’t look normal, with all due respects. The Coach googled eye brows, and there’s a number of links there. However, the Coach did not check for your specific topic. Perhaps that’s something you should do before going through with this. Also, perhaps a good suggestion is to talk with several people who have already had this procedure done, along with several professionals. You may find out that this may not be for you. Assuming they are like tattoos, you’re basically stuck with them for life, so you better make sure that this is really something you want to do. The suggestion here is to sleep on this for a (long) while. Coach’s Comment: It is the nature of us to rise to greatness if greatness is expected of us. Thus, we need to have high expectations for ourselves and others. Be safe, and thanks for making the Coach a part of your weekend! Please send questions/comments to askthecoach2003@


First this week, I must make a correction to last week’s column. While “hooked on phonics,” I typed my guitar student’s last name incorrectly. It’s Tim Litvin, not Litven as I foolishly typed. So sorry, Tim. I discovered the marvels of the Internet yet again last week when, while on Facebook, I saw a British gentleman called Paul King remarking about working at a hardware company called Oldham’s in Blackburn, where I used to live. Oldham’s was owned at one time by the father of a school friend of mine, Robin Oldham. I’d previously seen pics that had shown a new place on the site formerly occupied by Oldham’s, but I messaged the girl who had posted the pic and she had no further info. I was delighted (or “chuffed” as they say in England) when I asked Paul if he knew Robin and he straight away said a hearty “YES.” I asked about Robin and, being the nice guy that he is, Paul even went round to Robin’s house and told him all about me contacting him. Paul told me how Robin would not let him take a picture of him on his Samsung phone and how Robin is not online and doesn’t own a PC. We’re discussing various ways to maybe hook us up via Skype. What’s most incredible to me

is the power of being in just the right place at the right time. I’ve searched for Robin and others from my past at great length. Not only did I know Robin at high school, but he was also the driver who accompanied me while I was a “learner” and had to display Lplates on my car. L-plates are white plastic plates with a large red L on them that are tied (usually with string) to both your front and rear bumpers. will tell you more. Maybe we should start that here, although there’s a horrible stigma about having them on your car. I was never happier than when I finally passed my driver’s test. In England, you always took your test on the public roads and never in a closed area. Of course, now they are online too at uk/practise-your-driving-theorytest. For the uninitiated, a “lorry” is a truck. At that time in England, many families bought either motorcycles and sidecars or three-wheeled cars to avoid the high yearly taxation. tax-disc shows you how to renew. When I lived there, a car did not need inspected until it was three years old. Lest we forget, England wrote the book on complex rules and regulations. Check out their vehicle registration fees

at Vehicle_Excise_Duty! In case you think those rates are steep, the British also pay for an annual TV license. Yes, I did say TV LICENSE. http://www. tells you more, but it costs £145.50 for a color and £49.00 for a black and white TV license. By the way, that’s roughly $225.84 PER YEAR for the right to watch the “telly” (or $76.06 for black and white). In some cases, you may be entitled to a reduced fee TV license. “The government, not wanting to appear too harsh, has additional stipulations. I quote: You’re entitled to a free over 75 TV Licence when you turn 75. If you‘re 74, you can apply for a short-term licence to cover you up to your 75th birthday. Care home residents may qualify for a discounted TV Licence fee of £7.50. Residents, staff and residents’ families all need a separate licence for their own living area.” Also, there’s more: “You’re entitled to a 50% reduction in your TV Licence fee, if you’re certified as either blind or severely sight impaired. Some businesses can apply for a TV Licence to cover a number of accommodation or mobile units (for hotels, hostels, mobile units and campsites) or

entertainment units (for hospitality areas). You pay one fee for the first 15 units and an additional fee of £145.50 for every extra 5 units or fewer.” And we think we have it bad over here? Look at this: “It’s against the law to watch or record TV programmes as they’re being shown on TV without a valid licence. This includes the use of devices such as a TV, computer, mobile phone, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder. Watching TV without a valid licence is a criminal offence. This can lead to prosecution, a court appearance and a fine of up to £1,000 (not including legal costs). The exceptions are in Guernsey, where the maximum fine is £2,000 and Jersey it is £500.” By the way, two grand in British pounds is $3,104.39. In case you’re wondering how I know that, you can find current currency exchange rates online at html. This is always handy if you’re going overseas and what to know what the exchange rate is. On a lighter note, I’ll close with the news that iTunes turned 10 recently. Music insiders blame iTunes for virtually killing the “old” record industry. I’ll tell you more about that next week. Until then, stay happy and healthy. Tah tah for now.

Prices vary for identical generic drugs Costco the least expensive overall BY THE EDITORS OF CONSUMER REPORTS

throughout the U.S. to get prices on a month’s supply of five blockbuster drugs that have recently become available as generics: Actos (pioglitazone), for diabetes; Lexapro (escitalopram), an antidepressant; Lipitor (atorvastatin), for high cholesterol; Plavix (clopidogrel), a blood thinner; and Singulair (montelukast), for asthma. The result? A whopping difference of $749, or 447 percent, between the highest- and lowestpriced stores. Costco was the least expensive overall, and you don’t need to be a member to use its pharmacy. A few independent pharmacies came in even cheaper, though their prices varied widely, as did grocery store pharmacies. The online retailers and also had very low prices. On the other end of the spectrum, CVS, Rite Aid and Target had the highest retail prices.

For generic drugs, Consumer Reports found that Costco was the least expensive overall, and you don’t need to be a member to use its pharmacy.) If your insurance has ever stopped covering a prescription drug or you don’t have coverage at all, you know how quickly costs can mount. Americans spent, on average, $758 out of pocket for medication in 2012, according to a recent Consumer Reports national telephone poll. And in its survey of 1,130 people who regularly took prescription drugs — the insured and uninsured — 12 percent spent more than $1,200 last year. Consumer Reports’ advice if you’re looking to reduce out-of-pocket drug costs: Shop around. How to save Its secret shoppers Whichever drugstore recently called more than 200 pharmacies or pharmacy you use,

choosing generics over brand-name drugs will save you money. Talk to your doctor, who may be able to prescribe cheaper alternatives in the same class of drug. In addition, follow these tips:  Request the lowest price. Consumer Reports’ analysis showed that shoppers didn’t always receive the lowest available price when they

called the pharmacy. Sometimes they were given a discounted price, and other times they were quoted the list price. Be sure to explain — whether you have insurance or not — that you want the lowest possible price. The shoppers found that student and senior discounts may also apply, but again, you have to ask.  Leave the city.

Grocery store pharmacies and independent drugstores sometimes charge higher prices in urban areas than in rural areas. For example, Consumer Reports’ shoppers found that for a 30-day supply of generic Actos, an independent pharmacy in Raleigh, N.C., charged $203. A store in a rural area of the state sold it for $37.  Get a refill for 90 days, not 30 days. Most pharmacies offer discounts on a three-month supply.  Consider paying retail. At Costco, the drugstore websites and a few independents, the retail prices were lower for certain drugs than many insurance copays.  Look for additional discounts. All chain and big-box drugstores offer discount generic drug programs, with some selling hundreds of generic drugs for $4 a month or $10 for a three-month supply. Other programs require you to join to get the discount. (Restrictions apply, and certain programs charge annual fees.)

Diet can improve cat’s urinating problem DEAR DR. FOX: I recently took my cat, Mr. Puss, to the vet. He’s having a problem with peeing. He’s not blocked, but will empty his bladder and then go to the litter box, squat and do a little bit. I thought it might be a urinary tract infection. Three years ago, Mr. Puss had some crystals, but no stones. The vet kept him overnight and did a urinalysis on him and found struvite crystals and a possible infection. He was put on Simplicef, on which he did not do well. He was running around the house like crazy. He was then put on Baytril, but that did not go well, either. He kept shaking his head and rubbing his eyes, he was restless, he would not eat and had diarrhea. I stopped that medication also. The vet wanted to put him on the Royal Canin Urinary SO diet food. Mr. Puss was on it for about two years, but because it has all the corn and other undesirable ingredients in it, I took him

off it about a year ago. I believe he was allergic to it because he would bite and scratch. I give him UT Strength Everyday chews that are supposed to keep his pH balanced, but he won’t eat them. He eats Innova Evo canned food and Natural Balance dry food. He also eats some canned Wellness. I think he drinks enough water. He is an indoor cat who has been with us for five years. He could be 7 to 10 years old. He weighs about 20 pounds, but he’s a big boy, not overweight. Is there anything I should be doing differently to keep Mr. Puss healthy? — J.V., Gainesville, Va. DEAR J.V.: I cannot understand why the veterinarian had to hospitalize your cat overnight to do a urine test. This is a stressful experience for cats. It would be far better to take the cat in first thing in the morning with a full bladder after keeping his litter box out of reach after 8 p.m. the night before.

Please visit for information about transitioning your cat onto a grain-free, raw food or lightly cooked diet. Try flavoring his drinking water with some salt-free chicken stock. The more fluids he drinks, the better, since this is the best preventive of blockage by urine crystals or stones. Try feeding him plain organic yogurt or kefir or a probiotic supplement that may help him fight infection and heal from the antibiotic side effects.   

D E A R D R . F OX : I have adopted a rescue dog who is about 15 months old. One vet said it’s possible he has irritable bowel syndrome. I am not committed to supporting a sickly dog, so I hope to get this problem corrected if possible. Two vets have suggested canned pumpkin. This works if the dog eats his entire bowl of food; however, if he doesn’t, the problem is assured to manifest immediately. The first bowel

movement of the day is normal. The second — if the pumpkin has not been eaten, and often even if it has — is characterized by straining (which include yelping that I assume indicates discomfort/pain), a mucus texture and concludes with further straining, resulting in wet droplets. This is frowned upon at the dog park because I think it is interpreted as evidence of an owner who is lax in providing medical attention for her dog. Note: Regardless of the number of walking/ dog park opportunities he is presented per day (usually four), the dog’s bowels move on average only twice a day. Is there some kind of fix for this condition? — A.R., Washington, D.C. DEAR A.R.: If your veterinarian ran no fecal tests to rule out parasites and did not try a short course of treatment with metronidazole or Tylosin and only suggested you give your dog canned pumpkin, I would take

your dog to another animal doctor, especially if what kind of food you are giving him was not discussed. Check my website,, for details on the various factors that can trigger this common canine and feline condition, as well as treatments. These can range from a diet free of grain/cereal and GMOs to giving psyllium husks in the food along with digestive enzymes and probiotics. Peppermint tea, mixed with his food if he won’t drink it or accept it syringed into his mouth, can be beneficial for dogs and humans alike.

continues to this day. The parade was held Wednesday, and we had the pleasure once again at Fayette TV to broadcast the parade live to viewers on the Atlantic Broadband cable system and users around the world on In addition to the numerous veterans groups, local church congregations, service clubs, marching bands and Scout groups were in the parade. Hosting the festivities, along with me, were Chef Mario Porreca of the Mario Cooks show on WMBS Radio, and Heidi Ruby Miller an author, adjunct professor, blogger and local personality. Production for the broadcast was done by students from Albert

Gallatin High School’s AGTV under the direction of their instructor D. Eric Nuttall. Regular parade watchers may have noticed a new camera angle this time, thanks to Phil Mahoney and the City of Uniontown, who supplied a bucket truck for the broadcast. Taylor Hackley and Coordinated 360 provided additional production assistance. If you missed the live broadcast you can tune in to Fayette TV (Atlantic Broadband 77 or Monday – Thursday at 8 pm.

Mr. Know-It-All Gary Clothier

Q: What did William Randolph Hearst call Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Calif.? — V.L.M., Roanoke, Va. A: Hearst called it La Cuesta Encantada — the Enchanted Hill. In 1865, George Hearst, a wealthy miner, purchased 40,000 acres of California ranchland. In those days, it was known as Camp Hill and was a place for family and friends to rough it on camping trips. In 1919, Hearst’s son, William Randolph Hearst, inherited the land from his mother, Phoebe Apperson Hearst. By this time, the ranch had grown to 250,000 acres. Tired of the camping experience, Hearst instructed San Francisco-based architect Julia Morgan to build a “little something.” By 1947, an estate of 165 rooms — including 38 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms, 14 sitting rooms and two libraries — and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walkways was completed. Hearst died in 1951, and the Hearst Corp. donated the property to California in 1957. Q: I know a thespian is one who is involved in the theater. Why the name? — S.W.N., Brockton, Mass. A: Thespis was a sixth-century B.C. Greek actor and playwright. He is said to have developed the Greek tragedy, although none of his plays survived. Q: I remember my dad taking me to a Boston Braves football

game when I was a little kid. What happened to them? — P.G., Ankeny, Iowa A: The Boston Braves debuted in the NFL in 1932. The team changed its name to the Redskins the following year. In 1937, the team moved to its current home in Washington, D.C. Q: If someone is fired from his or her job, we know what it means. But what does fire have to do with losing a job? — Y.N.S., Lakeland, Fla. A: I found many explanations. Here’s one: Many years ago in England, if a village wanted a person or family to leave, the family house would be burned. In other words, they would be fired. Q: How did the Bartlett pear get its name? — L.Z., San Jose, Calif. A: The popular fruit was first grown in America on the farm of Cap. Thomas Brewer. He sold his farm to Enoch Bartlett (17791860), who popularized the new strain of pear. If you go to England and want a Bartlett pear, you’d need to ask for a Williams’ pear. Q: To this day, my grandmother has a doily on the arm of each chair and sofa. How did the delicate mats get their name? — O.S.D., Hickory, Tenn. A: They were named after a 17th-century London dry goods dealer whose last name was Doily (or possibly Doyly). At one time, “doily” meant “genteel, affordable woolens.” Q: I have heard the phrase

“holy Toledo” all my life. How did it originate? — W.F., Flagstaff, Ariz. A: I came across eight different theories; I’m sure there are more. One version goes that back in the day of vaudeville, performers often complained of poor attendance during Holy Week. Performances in Toledo, Ohio, were always poorly attended, so it was said to be Holy Week all the time there — which was shortened to holy Toledo. Another explanation is that Toledo, Spain, became one of the great centers of Christian culture after its ninth-century liberation from the Moors. It was holy Toledo. Q: Other than Audrey Meadows, did anyone else play Alice Kramden on “The Honeymooners”? — R.T., Waterville, Maine A: During the original skits of the show, which aired on the DuMont network’s “Cavalcade of Stars” from 1951-1955, Pert Kelton played Alice for the first two years. Audrey Meadows was turned down for the role because Jackie Gleason thought she was all wrong for the part — too young and too pretty. He later changed his mind, and Meadows replaced Kelton in 1952. She remained with the show until 1961. Jackie Gleason brought “The Honeymooners” back in 1966, with Sheila MacRae as Alice and Jane Kean as Trixie. Art Carney came back to again play the role of Ed.

This photo shows a living picture made with cryptanthus bromeliads, rhipsalis cactus, haworthia, hoya and peperomi. Living pictures, cuttings of assorted succulents woven together in everything from picture frames to pallet boxes, are hot among garden designers and landscapers this spring as an easy, modern way to add color and texture to an outdoor space.

Garden walls can come alive with ‘living pictures’ By The Associated Press‌

Cut off small buds of the succulents for cuttings, leaving a stem of at least 1/4inch long. No succulents to snip? You can always buy some at a nursery or trade with other gardeners in your neighborhood. “They grow so easily, don’t feel embarrassed knocking on a door to ask for a few cuttings,” Cornwall says. Make sure any old bottom leaves are removed, then leave the cuttings on a tray in a cool, shaded area for a few days to form a “scab” on the ends before planting. ADD SOIL Set the frame mesh-side up on a table and fill with soil, using your hands to push it through the wire mesh openings. Be sure to use cactus soil, which is coarser than potting soil for better drainage. Some vertical gardeners place a layer of sphagnum moss under and over the soil to hold moisture in when watering.

Looking for a fresh way to liven up your garden walls? Think plants, not paintings. Living pictures — cuttings of assorted succulents woven together in everything from picture frames to pallet boxes — have caught on among garden designers and landscapers this spring as an easy, modern way to add color and texture to an outdoor space. “Living pictures composed of succulents have a gorgeous sculptural quality that work surprisingly well in a number of different aesthetics — contemporary, bohemian, Southwestern and more,” says Irene Edwards, executive editor of Lonny home design magazine. “They’re great for urban dwellers with limited space.” Living pictures are nearly maintenance-free (i.e. hard to kill). So even beginners or those with the blackest of thumbs can look like the master gardener of the neighborhood.

HOUMA, La. (AP) — If you walk over the Twin Spans heading toward east Houma and peer through the chainlink fence right at the end of the bridge, you’ll notice an unusual patch of rocks and plants. That’s A.J. Connely’s rock garden — a 6-by6-foot collection of mulch, sand, multicolored rocks and bonsai trees on top of his concrete driveway. The concept, Connely says, is “no yard needed.” “I describe it as a place I wouldn’t mind being,” he said, combing the garden with a small metal rake meant to level the rocks. Connely, 44, a Houma native, began growing bonsai trees while he was in the military in the early 1990s. Bonsai is an ancient Japanese art form that uses miniature trees grown in containers. A big fan of “Karate Kid” films where bonsai is a theme, Connely thought the idea of maintaining the miniature trees would be an interesting, creative and therapeutic hobby. “I enjoy it,” he said. “It’s not something you normally see. It’s my personal Zen garden. I come out here, rake the rocks, and I calm myself.” A bonsai tree can be created from nearly any

woody-stemmed tree or shrub species. Connely generally uses holly trees. Throughout the plant’s life it is shaped to limit

growth and developed to meet the artist’s vision. The art of bonsai is important to Connely because it relieves stress and keeps him focused.

“Stress will kill you,” he said, pausing for a moment before returning to raking his garden. “I’m not going to let stress kill me.”

Scandinavian style fits spring The Associated Press‌

Perhaps to alleviate the dreariness of long northern winters, Scandinavian style tends toward folk-art florals, crisp checks, plaids and stripes, and wood furniture left natural or painted in colors that evoke the region’s natural beauty. The look is casual and easy, with playful touches and a simple yet refined vibe. If all that sounds appealing as you shake off winter’s gloom, you’ll find many pretty, Scandinavian-inspired decor options for spring. Scandinavian style is typically anchored by whites and creams, which provide a light-filled canvas on which berry red, sky blue, forest green and ochre offer pops of cheerful color. Black sometimes provides a dramatic canvas, especially on a rug. But there are also soothing faded pinks, soft stone grays and dusky purples in the palette. This spring, Ikea honors its Scandinavian roots with an extensive collection including designer Eva Lundgreen’s Akerkulla floral motif curtains and rug. The Hemnes furniture collection really nails the Swedish look with a linen cabinet in a deep red, a bed frame in gray and a shelving unit in blue. An airy, pared-down version of neoclassical design was the hallmark of 18th century Gustavian design, which has become popular outside of Sweden in the

In textiles, you’ll find a kicky pink gingham check in the Emmie Ruta duvet cover, and a country floral in the Eivor Leva duvet cover.

It’s a Moroccan-embroidered pattern, yet looks like a snowflake or ski haus motif. The light and airy Speckled Blooms cotton curtain features a hyacinth repeat in rosy pink and green on white.

Lexus ES350 boasts great looks, powerful V-6 BY WILL CHAMBERLAIN For the Herald-Standard

Lexus products are consistently beautiful, cutting edge, reliable and frankly top-notch. Lexus has evolved throughout the decades from an old fashioned luxury company to a company focused on providing the most refined driving experience available. As soon as you approach a Lexus, you know its quality and craftsmanship is second to none. Spend some time with one and you’ll fall in love. The test vehicle I had was the sixth generation all-new ES350 sedan. This is the midlineup model, slightly bigger than the IS and just below the GS. This model is comparable to a loaded Toyota Camry in terms of size and dimensions, but that’s where the similarities end. The ES is powered by a 3.5L V6 with 268 horsepower mated to a 6-speed automatic. This is a front-wheel-drive sedan with AWD an option on the IS, GS or LS models. On the exterior the ES is a very sculpted and expressive design. The front grill and bumper don the signature Lexus spindle design, while the rear is fitted with clean LED tail lamps and dual exhaust tips. Just below the headlamps are LED

The Lexus ES350 is well equipped and powerful but the price tag for extras can make it too expensive for some drivers in the market for a quality sedan.

accents that also reflect the “L” design motif of Lexus. The wheelbase has been lengthened by 1.8 inches, while the overall length has grown by one inch, resulting in shorter overhangs and a more spacious interior. Inside the quality continues and you can genuinely feel the increased

space, especially sitting in the rear seats. Lexus uses a Remote Touch Interface to control the climate, audio and phone with a rotary style knob and buttons located on the center consol. Personally I find this type of interface to be more user friendly and less tedious than trying to

stab a button on a touch screen. Once learned, you never have to look down to use the system and simply glance at the screen to ensure your selections. Another feature that I used a lot was the Drive Mode Select feature. You can select Normal, Eco and Sport modes to

customize your driving experience. All three options have very different feels and allow you to be fuel conscious, aggressive or just average depending on the situation. I used the Eco setting around town, in traffic and when I didn’t travel over 45 mph. It was

ideal around downtown Beaver with smooth acceleration and gear shifts. If I was commuting on Route 51 or Route 65, I used the Normal setting and when I wanted to increase the output significantly to merge or overtake, I switched to Sport. Each setting has different meter lighting between the gauges, green for Eco, blue for Normal and Red for Sport. The more light you see, the more efficient you are driving. Overall the ES is a very enjoyable and refined car on a daily basis. A comfortable interior, stylish exterior and great driving dynamics combine to make this a great sedan. There are not a lot of unnecessary “gadgets.” Fuel economy is rated at 24 miles per gallon combined, and I managed 24.4 mpg. The price tag starts at $36,100, with the test vehicle checking in at a price of $41,297. Will Chamberlain is a local freelance automotive journalist. You can reach him at wchamberlain@ pgh; on Facebook at PGH Car Guys; and on Twitter @ PghCarGuys. The Good — Simple design, great looks and powerful V6. The Bad — Stereo, no AWD and options push price out of reach.

Job hunting tips for

men and women

over 50

Though the job market has improved in recent years, many men and women are still out of work. Perhaps most troubling, many of those people are age 55 and older who are fearful of an uncertain future and a job market where they are seemingly overlooked. According to a 2012 study from the Government Accountability Office, the number of longterm unemployed people age 55 and older has more than doubled since the onset of the recession. For many unemployed men and women over the age of 50, the harsh reality of a job market that does not value their experience or skill set is deeply disconcerting. But as difficult as the job market can be for older men and women, it’s not impossible to find a job, though it might take some ingenuity and perseverance. ■ Don’t limit yourself.

Those who were victimized by layoffs should expand their job searches to

more than just their previous fields. While it’s definitely a good idea to maintain contacts in your old field and routinely look for openings in that field, it’s also a good idea to examine your skill set and experience and find a new field where these things apply. Chances are your years of experience are transferable to many fields, and redirecting your job hunting efforts to a new line of work might yield opportunities you are not even aware existed.

■ Embrace the 21st century. Many companies or organizations mistakenly assume that the digital age has passed older workers by. Workers in their 50s might be unfairly categorized as dinosaurs with no grasp of mobile technology or the latest software programs. But those applicants who can demonstrate their proficiency in the latest technologies, including mobile technologies like smartphones, tablets and social media, can put themselves above fellow applicants.

■ Start working. If you are mired in long-term unemployment

and spend every day at home, get out and start working. Volunteering is a great way to lift your spirits, network with other professionals and maybe even learn of employment opportunities you won’t hear about on the couch at home. And volunteering, be it with a charity or a professional organization, is a great way to revive your resume and continue to add accomplishments despite your unemployment.

■ Emphasize your age. Many unemployed men and women over 50

tend to look at their age as a hindrance that is preventing them from finding gainful employment. But your age can be an advantage, as many organizations find older applicants are more reliable and need less time to adapt than younger applicants with less experience. When emphasizing your age as a positive, don’t focus on job titles, which many other unemployed men and women your age likely highlight on their resumes. Instead, focus on specific achievements and accomplishments and reduce the emphasis you place on job tasks. Achievements tend to stand out above titles, and men and women over 50 likely have achieved more than younger, less experienced applicants.

■ Think small. Smaller companies wherein employees tend to wear many hats are more likely to value experience than a larger company. By the age of 50, many professionals have vast experience in a host of different positions, and that versatility is likely to appeal to a small company looking for employees who can multitask.

Finding a job after the age of 50 isn’t easy. But taking a broad approach and emphasizing as opposed to downplaying your experience might help you stand out among a crowded pool of applicants.

5 signs your roof might be wearing down Replacing a roof is a costly venture few homeowners look forward to. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2010-11 “Cost vs. Value” report, the national average cost of a roof replacement is nearly $22,000, a costly endeavor considering the tenuous nature of the economy. What’s more, homeowners who choose more upscale roofing materials can expect to spend almost $40,000 on their roofs. Such costs make it no small wonder that many homeowners fear the dreaded diagnosis that their home needs a new roof. While there’s little homeowners can do to reduce the cost of a roof replacement, there are warning signs homeowners can look for that might indicate a roof replacement is on the horizon. Recognition of these signs can help homeowners be more financially prepared should the day come when the roof needs to be replaced.

1. The presence of algae If the roof has lots of dark streaks and stains clinging to it, that is likely algae, which can grow on the roof for quite awhile. Algae does not necessarily do any damage to a roof, but it does do some damage to a home’s physical appearance, as algae on the roof is not very pleasing to the eye. Algae is most often found on the roofs of homes located in climates that have warm, humid summers. If algae is a problem on your roof, spray washing with a mixture of water and bleach can effectively remove it.

2. Buckling shingles Like algae, buckling shingles are another unsightly problem on a roof. But buckling shingles are more than just an eyesore, they actually might indicate significant problems. When shingles buckle, that’s typically because hot air from the attic is forcing the shingles away from the home. Buckling shingles also indicate that the roof is poorly ventilated, which can take years off the roof’s life expectancy while driving up home cooling costs along the way.

3. Granule loss Granule loss is typically a byproduct of normal shingle wear and tear that results from inclement weather, such as hail. Older roofs might experience granule loss, but granule loss can also occur on a new roof if a defective roofing product was used. Any granule loss, even if slight, should be addressed, as the side effects of granule loss include a weakened roof and leaking. If granule loss is not addressed, the consequences could be severe the next time a storm occurs.

4. Mold Unlike the warning signs already discussed, mold is not visible on the outside of the home. Instead, homeowners should look in the attic of a home to see if there is any mold growth. If there is, the roof is likely leaking, and the health risks of mold growth in a home are substantial. Mold is not necessarily easy to detect, so a professional inspection might be in order if mold growth is suspected. If a professional determines mold is, in fact, present, then the mold will need to be removed and all options, including a roof replacement, must be considered to keep mold from coming back.

5. Roof rot Perhaps the most discouraging sign a homeowner can see on his or her roof is roof rot. Roof rot appears when a roof is in considerable decay and, if not addressed, its consequences can stretch far beyond the roof, damaging other parts of the home thanks in large part to water getting through the roof. If roof rot is either not noticed or just ignored, it won’t take long for water to get through the roof and blaze a destructive path through the rest of the home. Homeowners might fear a full roof replacement because of the cost associated with such a project. But if ignored, problems with a roof could eventually prove far more costly than the price of replacing the roof.
