WILKES-BARRE – The parents of Rebecca McCallick are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver who struck and killed her outside her home on Hazle Avenue last month. Tom and Judy Pribula of Dorrance Township, McCallick’s stepfather and mother, announced the reward Friday. The money is in addition to a cash reward being offered by Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers. McCallick, 19, was struck in front of her apartment at about 2:23 a.m. on July 24.

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SWOYERSVILLE – Connor Smith was excited to open the Luzerne County jury summons, thinking he might get a chance to serve for the upcoming high-profile homicide trial of Hugo Selenski. His hopes were quickly dashed, however, when he realized he’d likely be in 7th grade math or English class once the trial starts. The 12-year-old middle school student was doubtful the school would excuse him. Of course, a 12-year-old can’t serve on a jury (the minimum age is 18). But that didn’t stop a computer program from spitting out a summons to the Swoyersville boy this week.

Connor’s father, Ed Smith, said his wife, Lisa, teased him with the summons when he arrived home from work Thursday. “I walked in and she’s standing with a piece of mail in her hand. The only thing I saw was ‘Summons,’ ” Smith said. “My wife said, ‘Don’t worry. It’s not you.’ I said ‘I guess you’re going for jury duty,’ and she said ‘It’s not me, either. It’s Connor.’ We thought it was hysterical.” Smith was surprised to learn his son isn’t the only child who has been called for jury duty.

Group asks delay for voter ID law

Volunteers have found difficulty in getting cards from the state. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center advised against implementing the state’s voter ID law or risk denying people their constitutional right to vote. During a Friday conference call Sharon Ward, director of the center in Harrisburg, said “it would be wise to delay implementation of the law” until procedures can be improved for a person to obtain a free photo identification card issued through PennDOT. The nonprofit, nonpartisan center released a report

PENNDOT CENTERS Voter identification cards can be obtained at the PennDOT centers located at: • 1085 Hanover St., Hanover Industrial Estates, Hanover Township • 1052 S. Church St. Hazle Township

detailing the difficulties volunteers went through in attempting to obtain the cards at numerous PennDOT Photo & Exam centers throughout the state. The report concluded the limited hours for some of the centers, lack of signage on obtaining a Voter ID and inaccurate information showed improvements were needed to uniformly implement the law enacted in See VOTERS, Page 10A

Local man wants to appeal to Pa. top court Superior Court ruled evidence against Robert Savage may not be suppressed.

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Hanover Township man scheduled to stand trial in October on drug-related charges has asked that he be allowed to appeal his case to the state’s highest court after the Superior Court overturned a county judge’s ruling that suppressed all evidence in the case. Robert Savage, 56, of West Di-

vision Street, was scheduled to stand trial on Oct. 9 by Judge Tina Polachek Gartley on nine charges, including possession with intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance. Savage was charged after a March 2010 traffic stop in Hanover Township where police say they found several bottles of pills that Savage said he had been selling. An officer testified he stopped Savage’s vehicle because he had crossed over the double line in the roadway for about 40 feet. Savage appealed his case to the state Supreme Court in late July.

A Times Leader story published in Friday’s edition mistakenly reported that the Superior Court upheld Polachek Gartley’s decision to suppress evidence in the case. The appellate court overturned her ruling and said the evidence can be used at trial. Polachek Gartley ruled in March 2011 that all evidence, including statements Savage made to police, should be suppressed. The officer who stopped Savage, the judge wrote, did not have “reasonable suspicion” that criminal activity was occurring and testimony at a hearing did not support that enough probable

cause existed to link the containers to criminal activity. Prosecutors appealed Polachek Gartley’s decision to the state Superior Court in April. The Superior Court overturned Polachek Gartley’s ruling, finding the officer acted appropriately, and all evidence should be used at the time of any trial. The court said the officer noticed any containers from a “lawful vantage point” and that the discovery of contraband on Savage added to reasonable belief that the container held a controlled substance. The court also noted the offi-

cer, Mark Stefanowicz, had been a police officer for 22 years and had worked on assignment with the Luzerne County Drug Task Force since 1991. Stefanowicz has also participated in 1,000 narcotics arrests and has attended numerous training courses, as well as having testified as an expert in the field. The Superior Court remanded the case back to Luzerne County for a trial in June. Savage filed a petition for allowance of an appeal on July 23. It is unknown if the pending appeal will affect the October trial date.

Onion image of airliner draws ire

The Associated Press

CHICAGO — The satirical newspaper The Onion is attracting some public ire for an image that shows an airliner about to crash into Chicago’s Willis Tower, the tallest building in the country. The image, in a video on The Onion’s website showcasing its stories, shows an airplane emblazoned with the company name Sears flying toward the iconic black skyscraper, which for decades was named Sears Tower and headquarters to the retail chain. A narrator intones, “Sears extremists fly a plane into Willis Tower.” The image generated more than 3,200 responses on The Onion’s Facebook page by Friday evening, many denouncing the use of an image reminiscent of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. In response to questions about the criticism and using such an image, The Onion marketing director Grant Jones stuck with the newspaper’s tone. He wrote in an email that, “9-11 must never be the fodder for jokes. Perhaps you didn’t see the news that humor died after 9-11.” Jones called the blurb “a very important story,” then added: “We’re surprised other major news sources are not giving it the coverage it deserves.” People in New York weren’t taking the image as lightly.

Ex-Idaho senator claims his bathroom trip official business By JOHN MILLER Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho — Former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Craig aims to fend off a federal election lawsuit against him by arguing his infamous June 11, 2007, Minneapolis airport bathroom visit that ended in his sex-sting arrest was part of his official Senate business. Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself. The FEC sued Craig in June in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., alleging he converted the campaign money to personal use by spending it on his legal defense after he was accused of soliciting sex in a MinneapolisSt. Paul International Airport bathroom. The commission argues Craig’s defense had no connection to his campaign for federal office. Craig counters that money tied to his airport bathroom trip was for neither personal use nor

his campaign, but fell under his official, reimbursable duties as senator because he was traveling between Idaho and the nation’s capital for work. He cites a U.S. Senate rule in which reimbursable per diem expenses include all charges for meals, lodging, hotel fans, cleaning, pressing of clothing — and bathrooms. “Not only was the trip itself constitutionally required, but Senate rules sanction reimbursement for any cost relating to a senator’s use of a bathroom while on official travel,” wrote Andrew Herman, Craig’s lawyer in Washington, D.C., in documents filed Thursday. In its complaint, the FEC contends the three-term U.S. senator’s campaign account, Craig for U.S. Senate, paid at least $139,952 to the law firm Sutherland, Asbill and Brennan in Washington, D.C., and $77,032 to Kelly & Jacobson in Minnesota for legal services related to his guilty plea to disorderly conduct.

The 45-year-old said there may be a time when a lighthearted allusion to 9/11 won’t hit such a nerve in the nation, but “it’s not coming up any time soon.” It isn’t the first time The Onion has generated angst with its satire. Last September, Washington Capitol Police released a statement refuting tweets and an article claiming members of Congress had taken a group of school children hostage. It included a doctored picture of Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner holding a gun to a child’s head. The story came a day after the FBI arrested a man accused of planning to bomb the Pentagon and the Capitol with explosive-filled model airplanes.

Cops: Farmer crushed cruisers

Vermont man charged with using tractor to drive over police vehicles. By DAVE GRAM Associated Press

NEWPORT, Vt. — A 34-yearold Vermont man who authorities said used a large farm tractor like a monster truck and drove over seven police vehicles — then tried to run over two officers who pursued him — was ordered held on $50,000 bail Friday. Orleans County sheriffs said Roger Pion of Newport was angry over a recent arrest for resisting arrest and marijuana possession when he drove the tractor into the parking lot of the sheriff’s department and rolled it multiple times across cruisers and a transport van parked in the lot. No one was injured in Thursday’s incident. Sworn police statements filed at the court said Pion would face 14 charges. The most serious one, felony aggravated assault on a police officer, carries a penalty of up to 16 years in prison. Sheriffs said that after Pion left their lot, they were unable to pursue him because they had no intact vehicles. When two Newport City officers chased him, he

suddenly started backing the tractor toward them. “I backed up in fear of our safety about ten to fifteen feet before bumping into another vehicle,” wrote Newport Officer Tanner Jacobs, adding that “at this point the tractor was still backing up.” He said he and his partner then left their vehicle to avoid getting run over. Converging city and state police and county sheriffs then surrounded Pion and ordered him from the tractor at gunpoint. He was found to be carrying a loaded pistol, authorities said. Sheriff’s deputies got there in a borrowed civilian vehicle. Defense attorney David Sleigh said he would seek to have the aggravated assault charge dismissed. “There was no actual contact. He never came into threatening proximity of anyone,” Sleigh said. “I understand if these deputies were annoyed, and there may be a personal measure of retribution” reflected in the aggravated assault charge. “But that does not equate to proof.” After Pion’s court appearance Friday, sheriff’s deputies and fire and rescue crews in neighboring Derby, where the sheriff’s department is located, were trying to salvage what they could from the crushed cruisers. They were us-

ing tools usually used to extract crash victims from crushed vehicles to pry open the cruisers’ trunks. Chief Deputy Philip Brooks marveled that the rifle, shotgun and other items stored in his cruiser’s trunk were unharmed. “Even my hat held its shape,” he said. Brooks said the department moved into the former bank building in December. There was no video surveillance of the ungated parking lot. “I’m certain the security issues will be revisited,” he said. Several other sheriffs’ departments around Vermont offered to lend cruisers to Orleans County. State police offered cars they were preparing for auction. Sheriff Kirk Martin said in an interview at the county courthouse that he was in Boston, preparing to attend a Red Sox game on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at Fenway Park, when he got word of the vehicular carnage back home. He hurried back north, with New Hampshire and Vermont State Police escorting him. Martin missed the game, in which Boston lost to the Minnesota Twins, 5-0. “Even watching them lose yesterday would have been better” than what he came home to, he said.

Jackson family blames estate executors By SANDY COHEN AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES — Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson say the executors of Michael Jackson’s will are causing harm by damaging “fundamental family relationships” and isolating matriarch Katherine Jackson “from anyone questioning the validity of Michael’s will.” The Jackson siblings released a statement late Friday through an attorney amid a fight over their brother’s will with the executors of his estate. On Thursday a judge named TJ Jackson, a cousin to Michael Jackson’s three children, as co-guardian with Katherine Jackson, who

was named their sole caretaker in the disputed will. Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson accuse the executors of a “relentless” negative media campaign and say they have been barred from visiting their 82-yearold mother or Jackson’s children. “The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael’s will,” reads the statement by Janet Jackson’s attorney, Blair G. Brown, released on behalf of Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson. They say they will continue to contest Michael Jackson’s will because “the executors have never

explained how Michael could have signed his will in California on a date that irrefutable evidence establishesthathewasinNewYork.” Representatives for the executors of the will did not immediately respond to calls and emails requesting comment. However, representatives for executors John Branca and John McClain released a statement some weeks ago saying, “Any doubts about the validity of Michael’s will and his selection of Executors were thoroughly and completely debunked two years ago when a challenge was rejected by the Los Angeles County Superior Court, the California Court of Appeals and, finally, the California Supreme Court.”

LOCAL Charges stand against Selenski Judge rules prosecutors can continue seeking death penalty in case set to begin in over a month. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County judge on Friday ruled that prosecutors may continue seeking the death penalty in the homicide trial of Hugo Selenski scheduled to begin in just over a month. Judge Fred Pierantoni, in a more than 60-page response to requests made by Selenski’s attorneys Shelley Centini and Edward Rymsza, made rulings in nearly 20 requests. Selenski, 38, is facing the death penal-

ty if convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both of whom were 37 when they died. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski Selenski on May 3, 2002. Their bodies were unearthed on the property where Selenski lived in Kingston Township in June 2003. Selenski’s trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 10. Pierantoni denied a request to dismiss the charges against Selenski based on the lack of timely prosecution. The attorneys had said the charges should be thrown out because more

than six years have passed since the charges were filed and prosecutors have not shown or established enough proof to bring a capital case against Selenski. The judge ruled prosecutors did not participate in prosecutorial misconduct when they seized items from the home of a paralegal, Janna DeSanto, who was assisting Selenski in his defense, and that evidence found in a search of her home will be permitted to be used at trial. Pierantoni granted the defense attorneys’ request to not admit some photos at the trial, and to prevent prosecutors from mentioning the discovery of other skeletal remains, other than Kerkowski’s and Fassett’s, allegedly found on Selenski’s property. Prosecutors also may not use a photo

tion disaster loans for American businesses and homeowners carry interest rates from 4 to 6 percent, Barletta said. Within a month of last September’s flooding in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Barletta, R-Hazleton, introduced the Disaster Loan Fairness Act to lower disaster loan interest rates to 1 percent. That bill failed to make it to the floor of the House of Representatives, a fact Barletta attributed to a lack of support for fixed interest rates.

CASEY SEEKS FUNDING

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, on Friday called on congressional leaders to protect funding for flood warning systems in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s budget. Weather monitoring systems such as the Susquehanna River Flood Forecasting System play a critical role in monitoring water levels for drought and accurately predicting floods, Casey said. In a letter to Senate leaders Casey said the flood forecasting systems were used to give warning of the September flooding of the Susquehanna River, allowing residents of affected areas to safely evacuate, and that every dollar invested by the federal government in flood forecasting systems saves approximately $20 in reduced flood damages and payouts by the federal flood insurance program.

Plains Twp. will focus on zoning issues Public meeting will hear testimony on ordinance to amend flood plain regulations. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

PLAINS TWP. – Zoning issues are on the agenda of a public meeting the board of commissioners scheduled for Monday night. Starting at 6:30 p.m. the commissioners will hear testimony and public comments on an ordinance to amend the township’s flood plain regulations and a request by Memco Realty Co. to rezone approximately 18 acres near Medico Industries on state Route 315. Memco filed an application with the board seeking to change the zoning to industrial from residential. Approximately half of the company’s 36.46 acres are already zoned I-1 for industrial use. The company wants to rezone another 17.8 acres as I-1. Township solicitor Stephen Menn said the landowner has not stated the reason for the zoning change. “They

Instead, the township will amend its regulations in order to make sure it qualifies for funding in the future. Parts of the township were inundated when the Susquehanna River crested at a record 42.66 feet in September 2011.

If any action is to be taken on the zoning issues it will be done during Thursday’s regularly scheduled meeting of the board.

WILKES-BARRE – A computerized records management system that will permit police to file reports directly from their cruisers remains nonoperational more than a year after it was purchased due to a glitch in communicating with the city’s Wi-Fi system. The system, known as “Total Enforcement,” is being utilized by the records department at police headquarters. The city has not been able to link that system to computers in cruisers due to problems with the strength of the wireless connection, said Drew McLaughlin, the city’s administrative coordinator. To date the city has spent $526,616 on equipment and training, all of which was covered by state and federal grants, according to receipts obtained through a Right to Know request. The purchases were made directly from the corporate offices of Dell computers. McLaughlin said officials are working with Frontier Communications, the city’s Wi-Fi provider, to address the connectivity issues and expect to have the problems resolved in the next few months. “The strength of the signal is intermittent,” McLaughlin said. “If the Wi-Fi is coming in and out, that’s not reliable. We’re trying to solidify it so there’s never an issue.” McLaughlin said officials believe the problem can be resolved by attaching an antenna to the cruisers, that would strengthen the signal. The city is in negotiations with Frontier regarding that matter. The city also is working to replace laptop mounts that were installed in cruisers. The mounts, which cost roughly $16,000 including installation, are being removed because police officers have complained the positioning interferes with driving. “It’s one of those things with their gear and how they do their job in driving the vehicle,” McLaughlin said. “It was an unforeseen complication we didn’t know until it was installed.” City officials have touted the benefits of the laptop system, which will free up officers time by allowing them to complete reports in the cruiser instead of having to drive to the station. The system also provides instantaneous access to important information, including whether a person or an address had prior involvement with police. Officers can also check the status of an ongoing case and share information with other city departments, such as code enforcement. Officer Phil Myers, president of the police officers union, said officers are anxious to get the system running. “It will definitely make it a lot easier to do a report on the road instead of having to come back,” Myers said. McLaughlin said the city is currently testing the enhanced system in one patrol car. It’s been working well so far. Plans are to place the computers in 12 cruisers that are in patrol zones.

According to police, a 53-yearold customer was standing at the counter waiting to pay for a coffee around 3:05 a.m. when the robber entered the store and pointed a silver handgun at him and said several times, “Give me your money.” The robber took a $5 bill from the customer and as a 58-yearold female clerk walked out of a

And it was her little sister who bravely told jurors how her mother and father suffocated the 17-year-old with a plastic bag — gripping testimony that led to her parents’ murder conviction on Friday. Justice Roderick Evans sentenced Iftikhar, 52, and Farzana Ahmed, 49, to life in prison for killing their daughter, Shafilea, in 2003. The couple — first cousins from the Pakistani village of Uttam — were ordered to serve a minimum of 25 years in prison. Shafilea was only 10 when she began to rebel against her parents’ strict rules, according to prosecutor Andrew Edis. The young girl would hide makeup, false nails and western clothes at school, changing into conservative clothes before her parents picked her up.

HELENA, MONT.

Wildfire brings evacuation As a wildfire’s flames raced to the edge of Lame Deer’s town limits, police drove the streets with loudspeakers blaring orders for residents of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation community to grab their most important belongings and get out. Buses were waiting to carry people from danger area, which on Thursday night suddenly meant the entire town of 2,000. Desi Small-Rodriguez, a volunteer with the tribe’s disaster and emergency services department, recalled the chaotic scene as the Chalky Fire threatened to burn down the seat of the southeastern Montana reservation.

PASADENA, Calif. — Seven minutes of terror. It sounds like a Hollywood thriller, but the phrase describes the anxiety NASA is expecting as its car-sized robotic rover tries a tricky landing on Mars late Sunday. Skimming the top of the Martian atmosphere at 13,000 mph, the Curiosity rover needs to brake to a stop — in 7 minutes. The rover is headed for a two-year mission to study whether Mars ever had the elements needed for microbial life. Because of its heft, the 2,000-pound robot can’t land the way previous spacecraft did. They relied on air bags to cushion a bouncy touchdown. This time NASA is testing a brand new landing that involves gingerly setting down the rover similar to the way heavy-lift helicopters lower huge loads at the end of a cable. How hard is it? “The degree of difficulty is above a 10,” says Adam Steltzner, an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the mission. And American University space policy analyst Howard McCurdy says: “It would be a major technological step forward if it works. It’s a big gamble.” A communication time delay between Mars and Earth means Curiosity will have to nail the landing by itself, following the half million lines of computer code that engineers uploaded to direct its every move. After an 8 1/2-month, 352-million-mile journey, here’s a step-by-step look at how Curiosity will

Following years of appeals and a vocal campaign by supporters, exAlabama Gov. Don Siegelman is heading back to prison after being sentenced Friday to more than six years for bribery and other convictions. Siegelman, 66, and former HealthSouth chief Richard Scrushy were convicted in 2006. They arranged $500,000 in contributions to Siegelman’s campaign for a state lottery in exchange for the governor appointing Scrushy to an important hospital regulatory board. Before his sentencing that his lawyer called “cruel and unusual,” the 66-yearold Siegelman told a judge that he “deeply regrets” the things he has done. SHERWOOD, ARK.

Bull goes on rampage A bull in the mood for love damaged an Arkansas sheriff’s patrol car when the animal tried to mount a man who was leading it across a yard. Authorities said Wednesday that a Faulkner County sheriff’s deputy was responding to a call about a bull running loose when he saw the man slapping and trying to guide the bull. The Log Cabin Democrat reports that as the patrol car drew near, the animal reared up and pinned the man against the vehicle. According to the deputy’s report, the bull then “tried to mate with him.” The bull then lost interest and followed a truck down the road.

WASHINGTON — A dozen U.S. service members brought women, likely prostitutes, to their hotel rooms in Colombia and also allowed dogs to soil bed linens and building grounds shortly before President Barack Obama arrived in the country for an April summit, according to a military investigation that followed the announcement of punishments for the men. The report provided to The Associ-

ated Press on Friday revealed new details about the conduct of the service members in the prostitution scandal that engulfed both military and Secret Service personnel. Seven Army soldiers and two Marines have received administrative punishments for what the report described as misconduct consisting “almost exclusively of patronizing prostitutes and adultery.” Three of the service members have requested courts martial, which would give them a public trial to contest the punishments. One Air Force member was reprimanded but cleared of any violations of the U.S. military code of justice, and final decisions are pending on two Navy sailors, whose cases remain under legal review.

According to the investigator’s report, the problems involving the servicemen came to light when hotel staff complained to U.S. officials that military members had female guests in their rooms after 6 a.m., a violation of hotel policy. They also complained that dog handlers allowed their dogs to sleep in beds, soil hotel linens and soil other public areas around the building. It’s not clear, the report said, whether the dog problems were limited to military handlers, but officials said those issues were corrected right away. The wider scandal involving the Secret Service erupted after a public dispute over payment between a Secret Service agent and a prostitute at a Cartagena hotel.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy generated163,000 jobs in July after three months of weak hiring, a sign it is resilient enough to pull out of a midyear slump and grow modestly as the rest of the world slows down.

Investors focused on the positive. The Dow Jones industrials surged more than 220 points. Three more monthly jobs reports will come out before Election Day, including the one on October employment on Friday, Nov. 2, four days before Americans vote. No modern president has faced reelection when unemployment was so high. President Jimmy Carter was bounced from office in November 1980 when unemployment was 7.5 percent. In remarks at the White House, Obama said the private sector has added 4.5 million jobs in the past 29 months. But he acknowledged there still are too many people out of work. “We’ve got more work to do on their behalf,” he said. Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney focused on the increase in the unemployment rate, as did other Republicans. “Middle-class Americans deserve better, and I believe America can do better,” Romney said in a statement. Worries have intensified that the U.S. economy will fall off a “fiscal cliff” at the end of the year. That’s when more than $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts will kick in unless Congress reaches a budget deal. The job market got off to a strong start in 2012. Employers added an average 226,000 a month from January through March.

Syrian regime reaches out to Russia for economic aid Signs of desperation came as resilient rebels fought regime forces in the capital. By ZEINA KARAM and VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV Associated Press

BEIRUT — Syria reached out to its powerful ally Russia on Friday, as senior officials pleaded with Moscow for financial loans and supplies of oil products — an indication that international sanctions are squeezing President Bashar Assad’s regime. The signs of desperation came as resilient rebels fought regime forces in the Syrian capital only two weeks after the government crushed a revolt

there. The renewed battles in Damascus show that Assad’s victories could be fleeting as armed opposition groups regroup and resurge. “The fighting in Damascus today proves that this revolution cannot be extinguished,” said activist Abu Qais al-Shami. “The rebels may be forced to retreat because of the regime’s use of heavy weaponry but they will always come back.” Syria is thought to be burning quickly through the $17 billion in foreign reserves that the government was believed to have at the start of Assad’s crackdown on a popular uprising that erupted in March 2011.

BELLWOOD — A 68-year-old central Pennsylvania man pepper sprayed his wife after she brought home a kitten because he had told her he was allergic to cats, the man’s attorney said Friday. Attorney Theodore Krol said his client, Dale Stehley of Bellwood, knows what he did was wrong and hopes to resolve his criminal charges through a firstoffender program that will enable him to have his record expunged if he serves probation. Krol said his client, a retired 35year veteran of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, has never been in trouble before and knows his actions were “inappropriate.” But Krol said Stehley “is allergic to animals and did tell his wife that she could not have a kitten” before she got one anyway. “He knows his reactions were over the top in relation to this animal,” Krol said. The Altoona Mirror first reported the incident Friday, quoting police who said Stehley’s wife told them her husband had been drinking all day before she brought the kitten home Tuesday night. Stehley slapped the woman before pepper spraying her after cursing her out about the kitten, according to court papers filed by police in Bellwood. Stehley’s wife was treated for chest pains, police said. Stehley faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 7 on charges of simple assault, reckless endangerment and harassment. Online court records confirm Stehley has no prior arrests or convictions.

Melodic solution to solving crime American Bar Association panel discusses intersection of opera and the law. By JASON KEYSER Associated Press

CHICAGO — It turns out lawyers and opera singers have more in common than booming voices and a love of melodrama. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among the jurists who have looked for legal lessons in arias, and she got a chance Friday to indulge both passions at the American Bar Association’s annual meeting in Chicago. Along with U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Ginsburg took part in an unusual panel discussion of the intersection of opera and the law, listening to a few live performances of some of opera’s greatest works. They mused about such issues as original intent, in both interpreting the law and operas such as Mozart’s “The Magic Flute.” Some later productions of that opera have scrubbed the score of elements that could be considered racist or sexist. Weighing in, Ginsburg said she’s “certainly an originalist,” but that law — like opera — could “grow with society.” “The founders of our country were great men with a vision,” she said. “They were held back from realizing their ideas by the times in which they lived. But I think their notion was that society would evolve and the meaning of some of the grand clauses in the Constitution ... would grow with society, so that the Constitution would always be in tune with the society that law is meant to serve.” Turning to Benjamin Britten’s tragic opera “Billy Budd,” the panelists were asked to consider whether the character of a ship captain might have found a way to spare the life of a sailor who was doomed to hang after being wrongfully accused of organizing

a mutiny and killing his accuser out of frustration. Accompanied by piano, a singer performed “I Accept Their Verdict,” the aria sung by Captain Vere after Billy Budd is courtmartialed and sentenced to death. “Well, I think there was” a way the captain could have saved him, Ginsburg said. “He didn’t have to impanel the court martial on a ship. He could have kept Billy and could have had the trial occur on British soil, but there was this tremendous fear of mutiny.” Verrilli said the captain’s dilemma was not unlike those

faced by many lawyers and judges. “I sympathize with the captain in that doing your duty in order to maintain fidelity to the rule of law ... can exact a significant personal toll sometimes,” he said. Ginsburg noted that Herman Melville, author of the novella upon which the opera is based, modeled the captain’s character after his father-in-law Lemuel Shaw, a judge in Massachusetts during the period leading up to the Civil War. Shaw deeply opposed slavery, but ordered a slave returned to his owner because it was required by the Constitution.

Paterno kin plan sanctions appeal

Building a house of learning

By MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

The charity for troubled youths started by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky more than three decades ago said Friday its plan to transfer programs and assets to a youth ministry needs court approval soon or it will no longer be feasible. The Second Mile can probably hold out another three or four months before it will have to shut down altogether, David Woodle, the charity’s interim president and chief executive, told The Associated Press. “The fundraising’s drying up, so we are using our reserves,” he said. “We need to make a firm decision here very shortly just because of the fiscal requirements.” The State College-based charity was financially crippled by the child-sex abuse scandal involving its founder and onetime public face. After a six-month internal review, The Second Mile concluded in May that it could not continue, and asked a court for permission to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc. But the plan has stalled amid procedural delays and opposition from lawyers for Sandusky’s victims. A new judge from out of the area was assigned to the case last week. Woodle said The Second Mile can’t wait indefinitely. The Second Mile had been one of the largest providers of youth social services in Pennsylvania until Sandusky’s November arrest.

Area man guilty in Woodlands incident By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Hazleton man charged with assaulting a bathroom attendant at the Woodlands Inn and Resort and assaulting police officers was found not guilty Thursday of the most serious charges, but convicted of five other related charges. Rafael Mora-Polanco, 24, of North Laurel Street, was found not guilty of three counts of aggravated assault and one count each of simple assault and harassment after a jury deliberated for just over three hours. Mora-Polanco was found guilty of three counts of simple assault and one count each of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

PAGE 7A

Judge Lesa Gelb said Mora-Polanco will be sentenced on Oct. 3. He faces a maximum of two years in prison on the simple assault charges, which are misdemeanors. Assistant District Attorney Nancy Violi prosecuted the case. Mora-Polanco was represented by attorney Ferris Webby. According to the criminal complaint, Plains Township police were called to the Woodlands Inn and Resort in Route 315 for the report of a disorderly male. Police said when they arrived, a security officer notified them that a male, later identified as MoraPolanco, assaulted a bathroom attendant and attempted to strike a

Woodlands security officer. Police officers spoke with MoraPolanco, who was “aggressive and continually asked for officers to strike him,” according to the criminal complaint. Police said Mora-Polanco struggled with them when placing him in handcuffs. While at Plains Township police headquarters, police said Mora-Polanco would not get out of a police cruiser when asked, and attempted to kick an officer. When fingerprinting Mora-Polanco, police said he punched two officers, grabbed an officer’s groin area and bit another officer on the wrist when they attempted to place him in a holding cell.

STATE COLLEGE— Joe Paterno’s family plans to appeal the sanctions imposed by the NCAA against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. Family lawyer Wick Sollers in a letter sent Friday to the NCAA said the Paternos would like to appeal the “enormous damage” to Penn State, the community, athletes and the late Hall of Fame coach. He died in January at age 85. An NCAA spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment on whether college sports’ governing body would consider such an appeal. The landmark NCAA penalties handed down last month included a four-bowl ban, scholarship cuts and 111 vacated wins from 1998-2011, meaning Paterno no longer has the most coaching victories in major college football. The family said the NCAA acted hastily and without regard for due process, and that it accepted the results of the school’s internal investigation without further review. The report from former FBI

director Louis Freeh said Paterno and three school officials concealed allegations against Sandusky dating back to 1998. Paterno’s family and the three officials have all vehemently denied the conclusions. Once a revered defensive coordinator, Sandusky is awaiting sentencing in jail after being convicted in June of 45 counts of sexually abusing young boys. Penn State handed the Freeh report to the NCAA, which announced its strict sanctions on July 23. Also among the penalties was a $60 million fine. Paterno’s lawyer said the family had a right to file an appeal because it was named in the NCAA’s consent decree with Penn state, as well as the Freeh report. “Furthermore, the NCAA and Penn State’s Board (of Trustees) Chair and President entirely ignored the fact that the Freeh Report, on which these extraordinary penalties are based, is deeply flawed because it is incomplete, rife with unsupported opinions and unquestionably one-sided,” Sollers wrote the NCAA. Michael McCann, director of the Sports Law Institute and at a professor at Vermont Law School, said Friday he doubts that the Paternos do have legal standing to appeal, and that the NCAA is likely to reject it out of hand, if they respond at all.

ing. His new bill would tie disaster loan interest to prevailing market interest rates. Disaster victims who could secure a loan from a bank would be able to borrow at 75 percent of the market interest rate, while those without credit could borrow at half the market rate. Rates would be capped at 4 percent. The rates would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2011, meaning flood victims who had taken an SBA loan at a higher interest rate would get a rebate. Barletta, R-Hazleton, said he has broad bipartisan support for the bill and thinks it will pass the House in September, the one-year anniversary of the flood. Three of the bill’s original co-sponsors, Tim Holden of St. Clair and two representatives from California, are Democrats, and there have been 256 congressional districts impacted by a disaster declaration since Jan. 1, 2011. Barletta said he hopes representatives from those districts will support the bill. Shickshinny Councilman Barry Noss said the bill would help Shickshinny residents and business owners. “This would benefit people a lot in Shickshinny, because people have had a hard time getting credit,” Noss said. “… It’s important for our town to keep everybody here, and we would also like a little flood protection to help bring people back.”

The area around the River Grille is commercial with a McDonald’s fast food restaurant and office buildings nearby. The township made the same exemption for the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino, said Menn.

No charges after probe of local company Marvin Slomowitz of Mark Development says documents seized have been returned. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

KINGSTON – A federal criminal investigation of a company that used river sediment at a Hazleton mine reclamation site ended without any charges, said a businessman involved in the projects. Marvin Slomowitz of Mark Development said Friday the documents seized in an April 13, 2010 raid were returned approximately two months ago. “They thoroughly investigated everything and there was no case there and they sent us back all the papers,” said Slomowitz. “There was no case to begin with,” he said, adding federal authorities provided no explanation of their findings. Agents from the U.S Depart-

ment of Transportation, the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Organization and the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General searched Mark Development’s building on Third Avenue and other locations. The probe focused on the awarding of a contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to remove 500,000 cubic yards of dredged river sediment from the Fort Mifflin disposal area in Philadelphia for use at the Hazleton Creek Properties LLC site in 2006. Bowen Excavating of Oram Street, Scranton submitted a low bid of $19.2 million, but the project was awarded to Fort Mifflin Reclamation Associates Inc. of Kingston, which bid $21 million. Two other firms submitted higher bids. Corporate documents listed Slomowitz as secretary for Fort Mifflin Reclamation Associates and Hazleton Creek Properties, whose offices were located in his Mark Development building on Third Avenue.

The project aims to make the 277-acre site suitable for a 20,000- to 30,000-seat amphitheater and commercial development. Opponents of the project have questioned the long-term environmental and health effects of the material used in the reclamation. In December 2010 the state Department of Environmental Protection approved for use as fill the smokestack scrubbings of coalfired power plants in New Jersey. Slomowitz said he felt “tremendous relief” that the investigation was over. The Hazleton Creek project continues but has slowed due to the economy. “It’s never stopped,” said Slomowitz.

About 65 percent of Luzerne County’s 1,500 employees now receive paychecks based on hours logged on the time clocks installed late last year, officials say. Most of the remaining employees are clocking in and out, but glitches must be corrected before the information may be used to generate paychecks, said county Deputy Budget/Finance Chief Donna Magni. “We still want to make sure we rectify discrepancies in testing before we go live in those departments,” Magni said. The county has spent roughly $640,000 on the system so far. Past commissioners said the improved tracking of hours worked and time off would eliminate abuse and reduce the manual processing of payroll. To clock in or out, employees insert a finger into a scanning device or enter personal codes on computers. County Controller Walter Griffith told county council members Tuesday they should force all court employees to use the time clocks. Nonunion court employees, including court stenographers and orphan’s court workers, enter data on vacation and sick days into the time system but don’t clock in and out. County Court of Common Pleas President Judge Thomas Burke has said judges must reserve the right to supervise the hours and compensation of their nonunion workers because the court is an independent branch. “I think it’s deplorable that

people in the courts refuse to use the time clock system,” Griffith told council. “Everybody else has to use it. They should not be excluded.” Magni said unionized workers in court branches are clocking in and out, including probation and domestic relations employees. Union employees in 17 Walter Griffith district justice County controller court offices also will use the time system, but county officials are developing a plan for them to clock in with computer logins to avoid the expense of installing readers in each office, Magni said. A solution also is required for road and bridge employees stationed in remote areas, she said. Efficiencies from the new system allowed the county to avoid filling a vacant payroll department position, Magni said. The system instantly generates detailed reports on used and remaining leave time for every employee – information manually tracked by managers in the past, Magni said. The software blocks employees from receiving sick or vacation days if they’ve used their full allotments. “That’s a wonderful feature of the system. We are progressing. I see a cost savings to the county,” Magni said.

Companies lax on cybercrime

T

HE FIRST LINE of defense against cybercriminals is to have the companies and individuals who connect to the Internet hew to industry standards for minimizing risks. Many of them have so far failed to do so, however, enabling hackers to steal trade secrets, knock sites offline and vacuum up credit card numbers. Sadly, a new Senate bill aimed at improving cybersecurity wouldn’t address those security gaps as forcefully as its sponsors originally proposed. But at least it’s better than the alternative that passed the House. At issue is what role, if any, the federal government should play in improving private industry’s practices. Business groups have urged Congress to let government and the private sector share more information about hacking threats and defenses. That’s necessary, but not sufficient. And if it’s done the wrong way, as in the House-passed cybersecurity bill, information “sharing” can become a pretext for government surveillance and privacy violations. The Senate bill is more sensiEDITORIAL BOARD

tive to privacy concerns than the House’s. Just as important as information sharing, however, is persuading corporate networks and sites to follow the tech industry’s best cybersecurity practices. The Senate bill’s sponsors originally proposed to require operators of critical infrastructure – e.g., power grids, water plants and payment processing networks – to meet federal security standards, using the techniques of their choice. But when business groups and their Senate allies howled about regulation, the sponsors dropped the mandate in favor of a voluntary program that merely encourages companies to adhere to cybersecurity standards. Companies already have plenty of incentive to protect their networks from hackers, yet too many fail to do so. The best motivator might be to require companies to disclose publicly when they’ve been hacked, which would bring more market forces to bear on companies that didn’t keep up with the constant demands of cybersecurity.

More armed citizens could prevent tragedy

I

n reference to the letter to the editor from Daniel Flannery (“Writer wants fewer guns in the hands of citizens,” July 24), if he were to wipe away the clouds of his hate for the Second Amendment, he might see the benefit of “armed” citizens. If several of the theater patrons were armed in Aurora, Colo., they could have prevented the death of 12 innocents and wounding of 59. James P. West Shavertown

Chief DiMaria role model for Swoyersville, beyond

I

compliment Swoyersville Police Chief Tom DiMaria on his outstanding job in not only keeping our community safe, but also for becoming involved in projects outside the community that assist the less fortunate and stem the tide of crime in the childhood years. As a lifelong borough resident, I was proud to learn of his involvement in helping “at-risk children,” which resulted in his being honored by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association with the 2012 Champion for Children Award. He also has honored our community by being elected to the position of president of the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association. Law enforcement needs leaders like Chief DiMaria who not only focus on the safety of our residents and community, but also reach out into the community in a proactive manner. Congratulations, Chief DiMaria, on an outstanding job. Mike Simko Luzerne

Reader sees nothing new in Kaufer’s platform

T

here is absolutely nothing new or innovative in Aaron Kaufer’s “PA First Plan” touted by Robert Malys of Grassroots Campaigns in a recent letter to the editor. An end to partisan politics? Seriously? If you watch PCN, you will see House Republicans preventing Democrats from even offering amendments to bills through rules manipulation, and announcing committee voting meetings with just a moment’s notice. As for legislator pay and perks, I am quite sure that if bills to alter them were brought up for a vote by Republican leaders who control the agenda, they would pass overwhelmingly. With all the media and campaign hype since the 2005 midnight pay raise, what legislator interested in re-election would vote no?

Property tax reform? Voters have rejected the only realistic solution, switching to sales and income taxes, three times via referendums since 1988. Tax credits are nothing new either. This attempt to lure companies to Pennsylvania is in use today, as well as KOZ distinctions and numerous tax incentives and programs to help businesses. Malys talked about lowering the high corporate net income tax rate. Kaufer’s opponent, state Rep. Phyllis Mundy, has proposed a reduction for the last two sessions and made it revenue-neutral by closing the infamous “Delaware Loophole.” And as for the “many organizations and local leaders” who have endorsed Kaufer? It seems to me the only ones are partisan Republicans interested in adding to their majority in Harrisburg. I am unsure who Malys is, but he really needs to do his homework.

Fairer pricing would help beleaguered U.S. farmers

F

armers across the United States must be shaking their heads in disbelief with all of the adversities they are facing. First, different versions of the proposed new Farm Bill appear to be up for grabs. Second, the majority of farmers are suffering from the serious drought. Third, the House Agriculture Committee chairman is promoting the extension of the 2008 Farm Bill, along with some amendments. Fourth, the accelerated amount of corn being converted to ethanol. The main concern, however, has to be the continued drought. Different solutions are being offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but Congress must intervene and be sure that forages are available to all livestock producers in the affected areas. Some of the hay and corn, etc., that is being exported must immediately be made available to livestock producers. In addition, the amount of corn that is being converted to ethanol must be reduced and made available to livestock producers. Sometimes we receive criticism, because we seem to write about the dilemma of the majority of dairy farmers. One must remember the pricing system used to price

DOONESBURY

to dairy farmers has been flawed since April 1, 1981. Attempts by Congress to improve the formula, in our opinion, have only made the situation worse. We have said repeatedly that the only answer to the dairy farmer pricing dilemma is contained in the Casey bill (S-1640, The Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act). Members of Congress should look at S-1640. In the meantime, federal and state officials along with all of the John Does must work diligently to overcome the disasters that are being experienced by the prolonged drought. Producers of grain, hay, corn, etc., must be treated fairly. Also, compensation for the extreme high cost of production to our livestock producers (including dairy farmers) must be developed, and developed immediately. While we have endorsed the reintroduction of the 2008 Farm Bill, we have reservations regarding drought assistance payments being enough to cover our farmers’ losses. Consumers must realize our domestic food supply is being severely challenged by the drought. Everyone must pitch in and help. Arden Tewksbury Manager Progressive Agriculture Organization Meshoppen

‘Obamacare’ a good start we can improve upon

I

agree 100 percent with Wil Toole’s recent letter: to repeal the health care legislation and start over is ludicrous. It made it through our unique system of checks and balances and came out as law, so why waste the time to repeal it? Additionally, “Obama/Romneycare” is progressive legislation, meaning it can be adapted to better suit our needs as human beings. I know it is in the past, but we actually could have bought into the government health plan, giving us another option, but the Republicans quickly filibustered that. Simply put, competition – as well as supply and demand – has an effect on prices. So the more people and the more choices, the lower the price. Stop being naïve, America. These politicians, lobbyists, lawyers and insurance companies are making careers, and lots and lots of money, all while making us look like fools. Why in the world would we want to get rid of the pre-existing conditions clause? It’s irrational, neglectful and downright cruel! Let’s not repeal “Obamacare/Romneycare” but embrace it. We need to concentrate on one problem at a time; so considering the rise of health problems, disease, premiums, stipulations and the overall cost of health care, this reform is not only a good start, but also a fantastic leap in the caring for human beings in general.

No account has been set up to accept outside donations, but Pribula said he will consider doing that if there is public interest. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call WilkesBarre Police at 208-4201 or Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 1800-4Pa-Tips.

dozens of arrests. Yeah, me – I’m the one that spots the criminals and the city has all those cameras.” The reason, he said, is he wants to help the city and its residents. A portable scanner sits next to him in his blue tow truck and the volume is always turned up. Kadluboski perks up when a call comes over the scanner and he dispatches himself to the area near the scene. When he spots a suspect or suspects, he immediately goes into crime fighter mode. He will sit in his truck and watch the suspect or suspects so they don’t flee. He will block an intersection to stop a suspect’s vehicle from passing. He’s rammed a vehicle or two to stop suspects from getting away. And he’s even drawn his handgun – he is licensed and permitted to carry a firearm. Kadluboski, 56, pays close attention to the police scanner between towing vehicles and attending council meetings. He said police officers have thanked him for his assistance, but he said he has not been thanked publicly by any city administration. At Banks shooting scene In September 1982, when George Banks went on a shooting spree killing 13 people at two locations, Kadluboski was among the first on the scene at Schoolhouse Lane. He’ll tell you he was the first to enter the house to calm down a Doberman that would not stop barking. More recently, when robbery suspect Joseph Solomon was on the loose in April 2007, Kadluboski held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Two days earlier the elusive suspect rammed a Hanover Township police cruiser with a dump truck and then damaged cruisers from two other departments before escaping. And Kadluboski knew before most in October 2003 that Hugo Selenski tied sheets together to escape from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.

PETE G. WILCOX/THE TIMES LEADER

Bob Kadluboski of Wilkes-Barre acknowledges Wilkes-Barre Area School Board member Robert Corcoran for mocking him by wearing his trademark wrap-around-sunglasses.

“I’m just a concerned citizen,” he said. “If I see or hear of trouble, I try to help out.” Most concerned citizens don’t take their civic duty to the extent Kadluboski has. And most wouldn’t use their vehicle to ram a suspect’s car like he did to help nab the White House Café shooters. “They would have gotten away if I didn’t,” he says matterof-factly. In June 2003, Kadluboski heard a city police officer’s call for assistance. He said he could tell by the officer’s tone that he was in trouble. “I pulled up and stood by,” he said. “The suspect knew the officer was not alone.” “Since I’m on the outside with this administration, I’ll never get any credit,” Kadluboski said. “But I’m not looking for any. Just knowing I helped somebody is enough credit for me.” Kadluboski says he’s been this way since he was a kid. He was 10 when he called police to fix a huge pothole on Blackman Street. And he was 14 when he ran into a neighbor’s house after an explosion to see if anyone needed assistance. “I’ve always wanted to help

people,” he said. Miners Mills incident A couple Sundays ago, Kadluboski heard on his scanner that two inmates walked off their work release job site. A search was going on near the Susquehanna River. “I decided to take a wide patrol of the area and I spotted them in Miners Mills,” he said. “I called 911 and gave a detailed description. The 911 operator told me the two guys were the suspects.” Soon after, the two men were returned to custody. Councilman Tony George is a former city police chief who appreciated backup when on patrol. “I remember one night I pulled over a car with five or six guys in it,” George said Friday. “When you’re by yourself with that many people, you appreciate having help.” George said while he was talking to the driver of the vehicle, Kadluboski pulled up in his tow truck in full view of the suspect’s car. “He made sure I was OK,” George said. “I’ll always appreciate him for that.” George says Kadluboski has

every right to attend council meetings and air his concerns. He says Kadluboski sometimes gets out of hand, but his conduct there shouldn’t detract from his help in fighting crime. “They’re two separate issues,” George said. “He should be recognized for what he has done to help law enforcement. He has always been there and he has never interfered with police.” In 2012 crime seems to be everywhere. Kadluboski talked about the recent shooting in Plymouth that left three people dead and another fighting for his life. “These drug dealers are crazy,” he said. “I don’t have a death wish, but what are we supposed to do? Let them ruin our country?” When he has had trouble getting through to 911, he has used his dispatch radio to call police directly. That has gotten him in hot water with the Federal Communications Commission. “Am I supposed to just let crime happen?” he asks. “I can’t do that; someone could be dying and I won’t let that happen.” “When crime goes away, then I’ll go away,” he said.

U.S. to weigh gay relationships in deportation Binational gay couples are eligible for consideration under a federal program. By LISA LEFF and AMY TAXIN Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Amid pressure from Democratic lawmakers, Homeland Security officials reiterated Friday that a foreigner’s longstanding same-sex relationship with a U.S. citizen could help stave off the threat of deportation. Binational gay couples are eligible for consideration under a federal program designed to focus resources away from low-priority deportation cases and let officials spend more time track-

ing down convicted criminals, said Marsha Catron, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security. However, the Obama administration will not automatically shelve deportation cases or process green card applications involving foreign citizens married to same-sex American partners. Catron said Homeland Security will continue to comply with a 1996 law that prohibits the government from recognizing samesex relationships, even as it takes these relationships into consideration when evaluating possible deportation. The Obama administration last year said it considers the Defense of Marriage law unconstitutional and would no longer de-

fend it in court. Friday’s statement, which builds on comments Homeland Security officials made last summer, came three days after 84 lawmakers led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanded the agency put its position in writing and disseminate it to Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices to help keep samesex couples together. The reassurance was first reported on Thursday by the online news site BuzzFeed. Immigrant advocates welcomed the comments but said a formal policy still is needed. “It is significant to me because it is expressly inclusive of LGBT families,” said Lavi Soloway, an immigration attorney who repre-

sents a number of same-sex couples in deportation proceedings. Yet “as long as it’s not in writing it doesn’t mean that much for an individual in deportation,” Soloway said. That sentiment was echoed by Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill, whose boss is awaiting word on whether the administration plans to recognize couples’ ties in a memo or field guidance,” not just public statements. “We look forward to the written guidance that we expect would be a logical next step,” Hammill said. Homeland Security officials did not answer questions about whether a written memo would be issued.

March. A spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of State which is in charge of implementing the law, said it goes into effect on Sept. 17 and any change must come from either the Legislature or the courts. “We have no authority to delay implementation,” said spokesman Ron Ruman. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled state voter ID laws are constitutional if they meet specific criteria. Foremost among them are that an ID is free to a voter lacking an acceptable form of identification and that obtaining an ID does not place an undue burden on the voter. “It really ran the gamut,” said Ward of what the volunteers encountered. Two of them, Tom Gemmill and Margy Frysinger, participated in the conference call with reporters. Gemmill, of Lancaster, told about taking his 97-year-old father Lewis, who no longer drives, for an ID card. Gemmill said it took about 90 minutes to obtain, but in the process a clerk told them it would cost $13.25 for a photo card. There was no charge for the card.

Tedesco said the issue stems from a new, state-mandated system the county began utilizing earlier this year from the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts. The AOPC gets its information for potential jurors from several sources, including driver’s licenses, voter registration and the Social Security Administration. There’s no way for counties to check a person’s age before sending out the summons, he said. “It will pick up people who are

Frysinger said she sought information for her 97-year-old father-in-law who lived in a nursing home. She went to a center in Selinsgrove and found out it was open only four days a week. She was provided a form showing there was a cost for the card and was told her father-in-law would have to come to the center and wait in line like other people. The nursing home where her father-in-law lived was better informed of the law than the PennDOT employees, she said. “I can tell you these stories are pretty common,” Ward said. She added that a new Voter ID to be issued by the Pennsylvania Department of State will “likely complicate the process rather than improve it.” Among the recommendations made by the center for PennDOT to improve the process were: • Expand the hours of operation so an ID card can be obtained five days a week at all locations • Ensure all appropriate forms are readily available and uniformly issued to persons seeking a voter ID card • Weekly publish the number of number of photo IDs issued to people 17 and over and the number of free IDs issued • Institute rigorous training for PennDOT workers to ensure familiarity with procedures and understanding their role in protecting resident’s right to vote. underage and we don’t have filters in place to make sure people who aren’t of age don’t get summoned,” Tedesco said. “We had one who came in and said their child is 15 years old. I got one that was even young than 12. If they have a Social Security number, it can get picked up.” Tedesco said the matter is easily rectified for the Smiths and other parents. All they need to do is check the box on the form that seeks excusal from jury duty and write on the line, “He’s 12,” and mail it back. Ed Smith said that’s likely what he’ll do, though he’s thought of showing up with his son on his jury date – Sept. 10 – just to see what would happen. “My wife said, ‘Maybe he’d get sequestered and we’d get a week off,’ ” Smith said with a laugh.

Scranton’s overseer leery of finance plan

Pennsylvania Economy League sees the city’s proposal for recovery too speculative. The Associated Press

SCRANTON — An economic recovery plan proposed by leaders of the struggling city of Scranton contains too many speculative revenue sources, according to a state-appointed overseer. The Pennsylvania Economy League said the plan submitted by the mayor and city council should be reworked because it relies too heavily on sales and commuter taxes and increased contributions from the city’s nonprofits. A number of the proposed taxes would require court or legislative approval. Council voted Thursday to move ahead with the plan anyway, hours after the economy league raised concerns, according to published reports. The city currently projects a $16.8 million budget deficit. Mayor Chris Doherty temporarily cut worker pay last month when it couldn’t meet payroll. As the overseer appointed un-

der the state’s Act 47 program for distressed municipalities, the economy league must approve of the recovery plan. “I believe PEL has sentenced the city to bankruptcy,” council President Janet Evans said. PEL Executive Director Gerald Cross insists the agency isn’t rejecting the plan so much as seeking refinements, such as listing alternatives should some of the revenue not come through. “We question some of the numbers. We’re asking for more clarification and further revisions,” Cross said. The proposed plan would boost real estate taxes by 33 percent over three years, far less than the 78 percent hike the mayor proposed in May. According to Doherty, the city needs an updated recovery plan to show lenders as it seeks to borrow or refinance $17 million to end the year with a balanced budget. Evans and other council members believe the league wants the city to impose significantly higher tax hikes. A vote on the plan is slated for Aug. 16.

U.S. teens take spotlight from Phelps

By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer

LONDON — Michael Phelps is turning his final Olympics into quite a victory lap, and don’t fret about American swimming after he’s gone. Led by a pair of high schoolers, the post-Phelps era will be in very good hands. In what amounted to a symbolic changing of the guard Friday, Phelps claimed the 17th gold medal of a career that has just 24 hours to go — on the same night one teenager, Missy Franklin, broke a world record in the backstroke and another, Katie Ledecky, took down a hallowed American mark that was set nearly eight years before she was born. “This has sort of turned into the youth Olympics,” Franklin said. “There’s so many members of the team that are coming up this year that are going to carry on this incredible generation.” Incredible, indeed. His long arms whirling through

night.” He’ll finish up swimming the butterfly leg of 4x100 medley relay, an event the U.S. men have never lost. That streak should carry right on with the Americans sending out an imposing quartet that includes three gold medalists (Phelps, freestyler Nathan Adrian and backstroker Matt Grevers), plus a guy who won bronze (breaststroker Brendan Hansen). It’s unfathomable to think the Phelps era could end with anything less than a performance that puts him atop the podium one last time, gold medal No. 18 around his neck. “I don’t think Michael is going to let anything go wrong in that race,” said Eric Shanteau, who swam the relay for the U.S. in the prelims. Just minutes before Phelps took center stage at the Olympic Aquatics Centre, Franklin set a world record in the 200 backstroke, the 17-year-old’s third gold in London. Another Amer-

the water, Phelps was seventh at the turn in 100-meter butterfly — it always takes him a while to get up to speed — but he brought it home like a champion. That, in a sense, sums up his Olympics farewell. He got off to a sluggish start but has three victories in the past four days, and it’s almost certain he’ll take home one more gold Saturday. That’s a relay.

DALLAS – Some 20 years ago, Scott Francis spent his summers pitching at the lower minor league levels in the Atlanta Braves farm system. Now he’s making a pitch to win on his home course. Francis and his golf partner Mike Lazevnick shot a 66 Friday at the Irem Golf Club, finishing the opening round of the Potentate Golf Tournament three strokes off the lead and as one of the eight teams to shoot under 70. “This is probably the best competition I’ve seen in this tournament,” said Francis, a member at the Irem Club. “There are eight, nine teams anyone can pick to win. Six or seven teams were five-under or better. Match play is anyone’s game.” The favorite, right now, is the tandem of Charlie Gelso and Greg Mascioli, who teamed to put up an opening-day low of 63 – nine under at the par-72 course. It made for a much better first day of the Potentate than last year for Gelso and Mascioli – who went to the tournament’s semifinals in 2010 but failed to make the first cut last summer. “We both contributed equally and both of us played well,” Mascioli said. “It’s a good feeling going into the rest of the tournament but you’ve got to keep playing well.” Francis had some pretty good days on the baseball field during his minor league career. A former Dallas High School pitcher and quarterback, Francis once pitched a See POTENTATE, Page 3B

LOCAL ROUNDUP

A masterpiece for the champion

Wyoming Valley evens legion series with D11

The Times Leader staff

West Pittston resident paints champagne bottles for this weekend’s race winners. By JOE BARESS For The Times Leader

At Pocono Raceway, the winners of the Pennsylvania 400, the Pennsylvania 125 and the Pocono Mountains 125 will take a victory lap, but they will also receive a local memento to go along with their national spotlight. Local artist Ken Frantz, of West Pittston, hand-paints the champagne bottles the winners pop open to celebrate their victories at Pocono Raceway. Frantz started doing artwork for Pocono Raceway in 1979. “They knew that I had art experience and they needed somebody making up ads and so forth,” Frantz said. “I started doing program covers for them.” In 1983, the late Doc Mattioli, Pocono Raceway founder and CEO, came up with the idea to hand-paint champagne bottles for the NASCAR races. “Doc’s idea was always to make Pocono prominent on the labels.” Frantz said. “What he liked was big block letters with ‘Pocono’ black on white. Most of the bottles those days were purely letters.” Although Mattioli died in January, the tradition of handpainting the bottles lives on at Pocono Raceway. “The grandkids started running the track about three or four years ago and they like the logo business,” Frantz said. “We’re more into logos now than we ever were. That’s why you’ve got logos on every one of the bottles now.” A few NASCAR drivers admire Frantz’s work, including Bobby Labonte, who collects the bottles, and Denny Hamlin, who recorded his first career victory at Pocono Raceway in 2006. “He was so impressed with the bottle that he ordered 16 of them,” Frantz said talking about Hamlin. “I had to do 10 originals and then 10 in 10 days because he

wanted them as rewards for the people that worked for him. He’s been a special driver to me for a while now.” Before painting bottles, Frantz first had an interest in photography. “When I got inducted into the army, I got sent to Germany and it was a shame not to take pictures because Germany was a country that had so much to look at, like castles and all kinds of things,” Frantz said. “What I did was get a cheap German camera and I used it to do slides.” When he returned home from Germany, Frantz wanted to do more camera work. “I was always interested in racing, so that’s exactly what I went to,” Frantz said. “I did that off and on until Pocono hired me up here.” Pocono Raceway hired Frantz to do both artwork and photography. “It was a great history because you had drivers up there like Richard Petty and it was a treasure chest,” Frantz said. “At the same time, I used to do paintings of drivers and then get them autographed.” Frantz doesn’t work in photography at Pocono Raceway anymore and his main focus is his painting. “I’m doing more artwork now than I ever did,” Frantz said. “I

used to work as an art director and all I did was direct people how to do work.” Frantz’s current project is to complete a jersey history of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Penguins figurines. “I wanted to do a souvenir that nobody else had,” Frantz said. “Everybody’s getting programs signed and pictures signed, so I figured we should do something different.” To create the figures, Frantz took a few NHL figurines and changed them to Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre players. “I started making them and getting them autographed when the players were around,” Frantz said. “At the same time, my chiropractor had seats next to the Penguin management at the arena, so I brought in some of the players that I had done.” Frantz said Rich Hixon, president of the Penguins, loved them and supported Frantz’s idea to create a jersey history. “He told me if I needed pictures, I could just call him and he’d get me pictures to match that particular jersey,” Frantz said. “That’s where it started and it just mushroomed from there.”

Frantz hopes to have a complete jersey history from 1999 to the present within the next two to three years. The figures take 20 hours to paint for a normal hockey player and 35 hours for goalies. Frantz isn’t being paid for his jersey history project and if a player asks for a figurine, he creates it for no charge. “If for any reason I cannot continue to do them, all the figures can go to the Penguins because I don’t think that’s something that any other team would ever have,” Frantz said. “Nobody has something you can put in a case and each one is a year of a particular jersey of the Penguins. That’s what the whole thing is all about.” The champagne bottles also take about 20 hours to paint. Although the art is time consuming, Frantz said the work relaxes his nerves. “I worked in a pretty stressful job for 25 years,” Frantz said. “There are deadlines every week in the printing business.” Racing fans can see Frantz’ bottles in victory lane Saturday and Sunday after each of the weekend’s races.

SCRANTON – Bob Sorokas led the offensive attack with three hits as the Wyoming Valley American Legion League cruised to a 12-0 victory over District 11 on Friday night at Battaglia Field in Game 2 in the Commanders Cup to even the best-of-five series at 1-1. Matt Zielen added two hits and two RBI for Wyoming Valley, while Swoyersville’s Matt Zielen picked up the win pitching four shutout innings giving up four hits and struck out four. Zielen, Wes Custer and Mike Leonard had two hits apiece for the winners. Chris Rebar led District 11 (Lackawanna County) with two hits. The two teams will face off in Game 3 today at Battliglia Field in Scranton at 7 p.m. The visiting team has won the first two games and District 11 will be the visitors in tonight’s contest.

GORDON Continued from Page 1B

drivers vie for 43 starting positions in qualifying that begins at 10:40 a.m. today. Gordon’s five Pocono victories – the last coming in June 2011 – has him tied with Bill Elliott for the most at the 2.5-mile tri-oval. No driver in NASCAR history has led as many laps – 957 – as Gordon at Pocono. And in the June race at Pocono, Gordon appeared to have a top-10 finish locked up with about 30 laps remaining before drifting back to a 19th-place finish. “I was very pleased to see the type of racing that we had here the last time we were here,” Gordon said. “And the fact that we had really good speed in our car. The thing that really stands out to me was that I made a mistake on pit road and got caught speeding. So we got to eliminate those mistakes, continue to put out the effort we’ve put out.” That effort, which includes

· The pole winner has won 14 times in 69 races at Pocono, the most of any position. Joey Logano won from the pole in June. · The only top-10 starting position not to produce a winner is the ninth spot. Marcos Ambrose started ninth in June and finished 13th. · If Logano wins the pole and Sunday’s race, he’ll be only the second driver to do so at Pocono in the same season. Denny Hamlin did it in 2006. · The farthest back a winner has started at Pocono is 29th when Carl Edwards won in June 2005. · The first 12 Cup races at Pocono were won by drivers starting seventh or better. Cale Yarborough snapped the streak by starting 12th and winning the June 1984 race. · Darrell Waltrip was the first pole winner to win a Pocono race. He did so in 1981, the last time Pocono hosted just one Cup race. · Waltrip won the pole for the first race in 1985, but had it voided two weeks later when it was discovered he used illegal fuel. Bill Elliott, who won the race after qualifying second, was then awarded the pole.

five top-six finishes in the last six races, has been overshadowed by his Hendrick teammates’ exploits. The biggest cloud came last Sunday when wildly-popular Dale Earnhardt Jr. jumped to the top of the standings. “Junior’s attitude and his focus and how hard he’s working are all showing up,” Gordon said. Then there’s Jimmie Johnson, a five-time Cup champion who won for a third time this season last Sunday in Indianapolis to firm up his fourth spot in the drivers standings. “I think the shop and these two

teams are very strong, strong as they ever been,” said Gordon, referring to Johnson. “But it just goes to show you just how difficult the sport could be and how you got to put it all together.” Lastly, there’s Kasey Kahne, a newcomer to the Hendrick stable. After a horrendous start, Kahne has won twice and posted 10 top-10s in the last13 races. He’s 13th in points, but those two victories loom big in getting a wild-

card place in the Chase. So now comes Pocono, one of six races remaining before the Chase field is locked in. “We’ve had fast racecars a lot of times this year, even last week at the Brickyard we had a great racecar, and I feel like we can do that again this weekend,” Gordon said. “But we have to eliminate mistakes, put a whole race together and there’s no doubt this team can win.”

UCI tries to block Armstrong charges The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Cycling’s international governing body is trying to block the case American anti-doping officials filed against Lance Armstrong, saying there may be a lack of due process and that witnesses were promised “advantages” in exchange for incriminating statements against the seven-time Tour de France winner. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency brought charges of performanceenhancing drug use against Armstrong in June, threatening to strip him of his victories. A fed-

no-hitter for the Rookie League Pulaski Braves against Huntington. Then he spent four seasons pitching for Single-A Macon and Double-A Greenville in the Braves farm system before a leg injury in spring training of 1994 ultimately ended his baseball career. “I was hit with a line drive, got a staff infection in my femur and was out 13 months,” Francis said. “That said, I was a 5-(foot)-9 righthander throwing 90. A lot of things would have had to go my way to make it all the way. “I had a good time, it was a lot of fun.” Francis – a Dallas resident and native who will enter his 18th year as a math teacher at Hanover Area High School – also had a good time working as an assistant football coach at Dallas High School for 11 seasons with his old guru Ted Jackson, and as a baseball coach. During his minor league baseball playing days, Francis was also was a teammate of current Atlanta Braves icon Chipper Jones, who is ending a certain Hall of Fame career at the end of this season.

eral grand jury investigation of the cyclist ended four months earlier without any indictments. Armstrong repeatedly has proclaimed his innocence and sued in federal court in Austin, Texas, claiming USADA rules violate athletes’ constitutional right to a fair trial. In a testy exchange of letters made public Friday as part of the court case, the International Cycling Union (UCI) proposed that it appoint an independent panel to determine whether the charges against Armstrong have merit. Now, Francis is teaming with Lazevnick on the greens of his plush Dallas course while trying to make a serious run at capturing the prestigious Potentate crown. The pair are off to a fast start. They used steady play and clutch finishes to join the 16 teams making it to today’s championship flight. Lazevnick hit an eagle and a pair of birdies, while Francis added 15 pars, two birdies and just one bogey on the weekend tournament’s opening day. “We played very steady,” Francis said. The leaders didn’t miss many opportunities to shine, either. Mascioli credits a tough shot by his partner Gelso – a chip-in for par 3 on the seventh hole – for getting the tandem in high gear. “Both of us were looking to make a bogey,” Mascioli said. “He knocked it in. That’s a big confidence boost, absolutely kept us going on the right track.” Now, all the frontrunners will try to stay there through a second day on a course playing fast and friendly. “The course is in fantastic shape,” Mascioli said. “The greens rolled through, the fairways are in fantastic shape. They did a great job here, especially after the rain.”

Stenhouse goes for 4th straight Iowa Speedway win NEWTON, Iowa — Ricky Stenhouse says he doesn’t approach races at Iowa Speedway different than others. “We come here to win just like we do every other racetrack,” he said. “It’s just worked out the last three times.” Worked out, indeed. Stenhouse has won three straight at the track entering Saturday night’s U.S. Cellular 250. The defending NASCAR Nationwide Series champion will try to become the first driver

since Kyle Busch to win four in a row at the same track. Busch did it at Texas Motor Speedway between 2008-2010. The seven-eighths-mile track in the middle of Iowa corn country appears to fit Stenhouse’s aggressive style. “Our car seems to drive better the harder you run it in the corner and the harder I get into the throttle,” he said. “That’s the way I drive every racetrack, and it pays off here.” Stenhouse probably will be

making his last appearance at Iowa Speedway. He’ll run a full Sprint Cup schedule next year. He enters the race 13 points behind Nationwide leader Elliott Sadler and 12 behind secondplace Austin Dillon. Sadler has three straight topfive finishes at Iowa Speedway, including a runner-up finish to Stenhouse in May. He’s coming off a controversial finish to last week’s race at Indianapolis in which he was penalized for jumping the restart near the end

of the race, causing him to finish 15th behind Brad Keselowski. “Ricky has definitely been the guy to beat here the last few races, and we know he’s going to be stiff competition,” Sadler said. “We feel very good about what we’ve brought back and what we learned here in the spring race, and we feel we’ll be just as good as anybody here.” Sadler said a change in tires for this race and the removal of a bump between turns one and two could help him on Saturday.

Men in the trenches getting the ultimate honor Four lineman are among the six being inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame. By JOE KAY AP Sports Writer

CANTON, Ohio — They blocked and tackled and got lost in those scrums at the line of scrimmage, overshadowed by the guys who handled the ball and soaked in the moments of glory. It all changes in Canton this weekend, when a group of linemen become the stars of the NFL’s most prestigious event. Four linemen will be among the six players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night — Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf and Dermontti Dawson. Running back Curtis Martin and cornerback Jack Butler will join them. In several ways, it’s fitting that the ones who protected the quarterbacks and tried to get them to the ground are the ones getting top billing. “Any coach will tell you the backbone of your team is the of-

fensive line and the defensive line, and it is appropriate that these guys go in together,” former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher said. For this group, it’s about time. “These guys like Willie Roaf and Jack Butler and Cortez Kennedy and Dermontti Dawson, how often do you hear their names called unless they’re doing something that they shouldn’t be doing?” said Doleman, who had1501⁄2 sacks. “These

guys are awesome players who are so deserving of the Hall of Fame, and I’m so proud to be going in with them.” The six inductees are the centerpiece of a special weekend in the northern Ohio city, which had to do without one of its main events last year. The Hall of Fame game was called off because of the NFL lockout, costing the hall and the city a lot of money. The game returns on Sunday night, with more than a little in-

trigue of its own. The New Orleans Saints, hit hard by their bounty scandal in the offseason, will open the preseason against the Arizona Cardinals. Labor issues still play a role, though — replacement officials will be used because the refs’ union has been locked out. It’ll overshadow the preseason, at least for the first game. “I know there’ll be a lot of attention based on what happened with their offseason,” Cardinals

coach Ken Whisenhunt said. The weekend started with a big moment for the hall itself. A 10,000-square-foot center named for Bills founder Ralph Wilson, Jr., was dedicated, a major expansion that will provide more space for documents, photographs and artifacts. Then, those big guys were ready to get the big moments, the ones usually saved for someone else. “Every quarterback who wins

the Super Bowl, he goes into the Hall of Fame,” Doleman said. “It’s like, ‘Come on!’ That position probably deserves more scrutiny than any other position on the field because you can have an average quarterback with a great offensive line, and he gets all the glory. They’re enabling him to throw the ball and do what he needs to do.” On Saturday, some of those Hall of Fame passers will be in the audience applauding a group of players known for their years of excellence at the game’s basics — blocking and tackling. “A very down-to-earth class, not a lot of egos involved,” Roaf said. “We all are happy about what we achieved, but (they’re) good guys and good players to go in with.” Making it even more special is the fact that the linemen haven’t had much chance experience in those confetti-spray celebrations on Super Bowl Sundays. “The fact we have four linemen going in is real special,” Roaf said. “Also, none of us have rings. We all had real good careers, but none of us played in the Super Bowl other than Dermontti.”

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne during the team’s training camp in Anderson, Ind., Thursday.

Wayne now the main attraction for the Colts

By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

ANDERSON, Ind. — Reggie Wayne’s world is changing. The fun-loving receiver who always got overshadowed by Peyton Manning has suddenly become the feature attraction at Colts’ training camp. Fans roar every time he steps on the field and rush over to him for autographs. The group of rookies joining him for extra work catching passes has been increasing daily. Veterans pepper him with questions, and the perennial Pro Bowler seems to be savoring his new job as the offensive leader after deciding to play with the revamped Colts. “Some people say we’re depleted. I say we’re younger and hungrier,” Wayne said Friday. “I wanted to be here. I wanted to build this foundation to get the Colts back to the old winning ways, and we still have some OGs around here.” Wayne is one of those old guys, or OGs in his vernacular. But for the first time in his 12-year career, Wayne is the veteran leader of this team. Edgerrin James, Wayne’s old pal from Miami, left as a free agent before Indy’s 2006 Super Bowl-winning season. Marvin Harrison, the receiver who mentored Wayne, wasn’t re-signed after 2008. The biggest purge came in March when Manning, the longtime face of the franchise, was released, clearing room for Andrew Luck’s arrival. Free agent center Jeff Saturday signed with Green Bay. Record-setting tight end Dallas Clark, former Pro Bowl

running back Joseph Addai and defensive captains Gary Brackett and Melvin Bullitt were cut. Longtime offensive line starter Ryan Diem retired, and Wayne could have left, too, as a free agent. He almost did. Wayne was so convinced his days in Indy were over that he celebrated the game-winning touchdown against Houston like it was his final score at Lucas Oil Stadium. The next week, he packed up his locker, took down his name plate and shipped everything home for the offseason. His says his heart wouldn’t let him leave. Instead, Wayne took less money to return to the Colts, giving them a veteran presence on an offense that will have at least seven new starters in the Sept. 9 season-opener at Chicago. Indianapolis needed him. “We’re a young team, and if you watch Reggie, he’s been doing the same thing for years,” cornerback Jerraud Powers said. “For the young guys coming up, he’s a great guy to watch, to see how to do it the right way. You know going against Reggie every day in practice, he’s teaching me stuff all the time. He’ll say, ‘I read this or that off of you.”’ Wayne said he catches about 150 balls from a machine between workouts to keep his hands sharp. When Wayne walked over to the machine after Sunday’s 21⁄2-hour practice, he stood alone. On Day 2, two other players had joined him. On the third day, the group consisted of more than a half-dozen guys and it continues to expand.

ATLANTA — Tim Hudson gave up only four hits and no earned runs in 7 1-3 innings to remain unbeaten in his career against Houston, and the Braves stayed hot with a win that left the Astros with their worst 32-game stretch in franchise history. The Astros are 3-29 in their last 32 games. Houston’s worst 32-game stretch before the 2012 season was 5-27, most recently from June 26 to July 29, 1962 as the Colt .45s, according to STATS LLC.

Indians get best of SWB Yanks again The Times Leader staff

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s struggles against Indianapolis continued on Friday night. The Yankees lost for the fifth time in six games this season to the Indians dropping a 2-0 decision at Frontier Field. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre couldn’t overcome a solid pitching performance from Jeff Locke, who threw 7 1⁄3 innings striking out 10 and allowed just three hits. The only hits the Yankees got were doubles from Ronnier Mustelier and Kevin Russo and a single by Francisco Cervelli as they lost for the third straight game to fall out of first place and are now a half game behind Pawtucket in the International League North division. Mike O’Connor got the start for the Yankees on Friday night and was just as good as Locke (9-5), not giving up a run until the sixth inning when a runner he put on base with a walk, Anderson Hernandez, scored after Cory Wade relieved him and allowed an RBI-single to Matt Hague. O’Connor’s record dropped to 2-6, but he only allowed two hits and two walks, while fanning five. The other run for the Indians also scored in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Clement. Wade threw 1 1⁄3 innings, while Justin Thomas and Preston Claiborne threw scoreless frames. Indians 2, Yankees 0

Coombs struck out 18 and allowed three hits. 1929 — The Cleveland Indians, down to their last out trailing 6-5, scored nine runs in the ninth inning for a 14-6 victory over the New York Yankees. 1955 — Chicago’s Ernie Banks hit three home runs at Wrigley against three Pirates pitchers to lead the Cubs to an 11-10 win. 1963 — New York’s Mickey Mantle, batting for the first time in two months after breaking his left foot, hit a pinch home run as the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-10 for a split of a doubleheader. 1982 — Joel Youngblood became the first player in major league history to play and get a base hit for two different teams in two different cities in the same day. In the afternoon, his hit drove in the winning run for the New York Mets in a 7-4 victory at Chicago. After the game, he was traded to the Montreal Expos and played that night in Philadelphia. He entered the game in right field in the fourth inning and later got a single. 1985 — Tom Seaver, 40, became the 17th 300-game winner in major league history with a sixhitter — all singles — as the Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees 4-1 on Phil Rizzuto Day. Seaver walked one and struck out seven, giving him 3,499 in his 19-year career. 1985 — Rod Carew of the California Angels got his 3,000th hit in a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins, his first major league team. 1989 — Dave Stieb of the Toronto Blue Jays, who lost consecutive no-hit bids with two outs in the ninth inning last September, came within one out of a perfect game before settling for a two-hit 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Roberto Kelly’s double spoiled Stieb’s bid.

U.S. tops China Maggie Steffens scored three goals and the U.S. women’s team beat China 7-6 in its final preliminary-stage game. The U.S. finished the preliminary round even with Spain at the top Group A with five points. But Spain earned the top spot because of the tiebreaker, and the Americans will play 2012 European champion Italy in Sunday’s quarterfinals. Spain beat Hungary 13-11, Australia edged Russia 11-8, and Italy topped host Britain 10-5.

LONDON — Rested and refreshed, the U.S. women continue to dominant the Olympic basketball tournament. Diana Taurasi scored18 points and Tina Charles had a double-double to lead the Americans to an 88-61 win over the Czech Republic on Friday. The Americans (4-0) have now won 37 straight games in the Olympics, including four straight gold medals. The U.S. started slow but looked fresh after its first day off since getting together on July 14 to start training for the London Games. The U.S. had rolled through its first three opponents winning by 36 points a game and continued the onslaught against the Czechs (1-3), who will need to win their final game Sunday to possibly advance to the quarterfinals. The Czechs jumped out to a quick lead

scoring the first 10 points of the game in just two minutes. It was the Americans’ biggest deficit in the Olympics since they trailed the Czechs 13-2 in UP NEXT the opener of the 2008 Beijing Team USA Games. They went vs. China on to win that game 11:45 a.m. by 40 points. Sunday “We had a little bit TV: NBC of a tough time getting shots to go in and the Czech Republic team did a great job of hitting their threes,” U.S. forward Maya Moore said of the Americans’ slow start. “We just try to stay aggressive. It’s about when the other team hits you, you gotta get back up and figure out a way to overcome it. And that’s what we did.”

The Czech Republic also played the U.S. tight for a half in the 2010 world championship gold medal game, trailing by five at the break. The U.S. won that contest by 20. The Czechs led 26-24 after the first quarter after hitting six of their first10 3point attempts. They didn’t hit another 3-pointer the rest of the game, missing their final 11 attempts. While the Czechs went cold, the Americans heated up behind Charles — who had 16 points and 14 rebounds — and Tamika Catchings. Trailing 30-26, the Americans scored 22 of the next 28 points to go up 48-36 with 2:18 left in the half. Catchings and Charles each had six points during the burst. Catchings’ layup off a fullcourt pass from Moore gave the U.S. a 31-30 lead. After a Czech basket, Charles scored six straight and the U.S. never trailed again.

ROWING

Kiwi walks away with title Mahe Drysdale was really nervous before the men’s single sculls final. He felt really great when it was all over. The star oarsman from New Zealand won his race in the Olympic rowing regatta, completing the resume of one of the sport’s leading names. The fivetime world champion finished in 6 minutes, 57.82 seconds. Ondrej Synek of the Czech Republic got the silver, and Britain’s Alan Campbell surged late for third. New Zealand also got a victory in men’s pair, with Hamish Bond and Eric Murray extending their three-year unbeaten run. Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins won the women’s double sculls for host Britain, and Germany upset favorite Croatia for the men’s quadruple sculls title. GYMNASTICS -

Chinese capture trampoline gold medal China’s Dong Dong took the gold in men’s trampoline competition, putting together a dizzying series of flips and twists. Dmitry Ushakov of Russia was second, and defending Olympic champion Lu Chunlong of China grabbed the bronze. DIVING

China takes early in lead in 3-meter springboard Wu Minxia and He Zi of China led the preliminaries of women’s 3-meter springboard, another dominating performance by the country that captured the first four diving golds of the London Games. Minxia surged ahead with a brilliant final dive, a back 21⁄2 somersault in the pike position. The crowd gasped when she sliced through the water, barely causing a ripple. SHOOTING

Record set at 50 meters Sergei Martynov of Belarus set a world record in the men’s 50-meter rifle prone, and Cuba got its first shooting gold medal at an Olympics when Leuris Pupo won the 25-meter rapid fire pistol. Martynov became the second shooter in Olympic history to score the maximum 600 points in qualification and finished with a total of 705.5 points, beating the 12-year-old mark from Germany’s Christian Klees by 0.7. The silver went to Belgium’s Lionel Cox, and Rajmond Debevec of Slovenia took third. Pupo scored 34 shots in the final, beating Vijay Kumar of India by four shots. Ding Feng of China won bronze with 27 points. HANDBALL

Wambach leads Americans again

By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

NEWCASTLE, England — These were perhaps going to be the Hope Solo Olympics for the U.S. women’s soccer team. Or maybe the Alex Morgan Games. Instead, they belong so far to the old reliable, Abby Wambach, who has scored in every match to lead the Americans into the semifinals. The 32-year-old striker slid onto the ball in the 27th minute Friday to knock home her fourth goal of the tournament and then led a celebration of cartwheels — a tribute to the gymnastics team — in the United States’ 2-0 win over New Zealand in the quarterfinals of the Olympic tournament. “Everything she does on and off the field, she leads this team,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “She’s in a good place, that’s for sure.” Sydney Leroux added an insurance goal in the 87th minute for the two-time defending gold medalists, who will play Canada match in Manchester on Monday. The Americans beat the Canadians 4-0 in Olympic qualifying in Janu-

ary. Wambach extended her U.S. record with her eighth career Olympic goal — a mark she holds despite missing the Beijing Games UP NEXT with a broken leg — and pushed her Team USA international tally vs. Canada to 142, only 16 be2:45 p.m. hind Mia Hamm’s Monday world record. For TV: NBCSN most of the year, she has yielded much of the scoring load to youngster Morgan while using both holistic and traditional treatments to treat the nagging Achilles tendinitis that has bothered her for some three years. “I don’t know if it’s the adrenaline, I’m not quite sure exactly what the reason is, but I’m not going to ask questions at this point,” Wambach said. “I’m justplayingpain-freeforthefirsttimein a long time.”

New Zealand coach Tony Readings called Wambach “a nightmare,” and the sight of the 5-foot-11 veteran battling multiple defenders and picking herself up off the ground has become so commonplace that her teammates hardly notice. “Oh, we turn a blind eye to all of her bumps and bruises,” goalkeeper Solo said. “She hits the floor, she hits the ground,itdoesn’tevenfazeus anymore because she’s tough. She might be hurting, but she’s mentally tough. She has more of a lion and a passion inside that nothing will stop her, and she’ll find a way to win. It rubs off on everybody. “But maybe we should probably go up to her and say, ’Abby, you OK?”’ Solo added with a laugh. “But we just ignore it.” Wambach’s scoring spurt is remarkable given all the attention she draws from the opposition. Even though her speed isn’t what it used to be, she’s still one of the strongest players in the game and is unmatched in the air — yet three of her four goals at the Olympics have come with her feet.

Shooting victim, Phelps’ finale today’s highlights By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer

LONDON — Bryshon Nellum’s doctors told him he might never run again. Not on an elite level. And surely not in the Olympics. Yet here he is in London, less than four years after gang members shot the former Southern California track star three times in the legs in a case of mistaken identity. Just a year ago he underwent his third and final operation to remove the last remnants of bullet fragments in his left hamstring. “Me making the team, I already feel like I’ve won,” Nellum said. He will make his long-awaited Olympic debut Saturday in the preliminary heats of the 400 meters — the same event that features double-amputee Oscar Pistorius of South Africa. The man known as “Blade Runner” fought to compete alongside the other sprinters at Olympic Stadium. There’s also the first big sprint showdown at the track between the U.S. and

Jamaica in the women’s 100-meter final. In the pool, Michael Phelps will wrap up his final Olympics in the 400-meter medley relay looking to add to his record medal haul. Already, Nellum says, he has won just by wearing the U.S. uniform when plenty of people questioned whether he’d even walk after the attack following a Halloween party in 2008. The 23-year-old Nellum is now mixing company with some of the very track stars he has watched and admired in recent Summer Olympics: Jeremy Wariner, Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards-Ross. “I’m happy to be here to represent where I come from and what I believe in, and my country,” Nellum said. “I’ve been through a lot making the team already. I have to continue to work toward my goals.” For him to be competing in these Olympics would have been unimaginable only four years ago — two months after Beijing. But Nellum immediately committed himself to the challenging comeback.

Some days, he crawled across the finish line at practice in agony and tears, the pain in his legs so great. USC coach Ron Allice, with him throughout the journey and by his side for the London Games, never doubted Nellum could do it. Then Nellum finished third at the Olympic trials in June in Eugene, Ore., behind defending gold medalist LaShawn Merritt and Tony McQuay. Nellum’s mom, LeShon Hughes, put her life aside and dedicated herself to the recovery of her only child. “Oh, wow,” she said moments before her flight to London from Los Angeles on Thursday. “Words can’t even explain the feeling. It’s like real heaven. I’m starting to cry right now.” Nellum took a bullet to each thigh and another in the left hamstring during the shooting outside a restaurant near USC’s campus as he left the Halloween party. Two gang members were sentenced last August to 15 years each in prison for the crime. Prosecutors said the men mistook Nellum for a rival gang member.

LONDON — Defending beach volleyball gold medalist Phil Dalhausser saw the Italian points pile up on the scoreboard and knew his hopes for a repeat were over when Todd Rogers’ final Olympic touch fell short of the net. “It’s a little bit different when you win: It takes about a month for it to sink in,” Dalhausser said Friday after the Americans lost to Italy in the round of 16 at Horse Guards Parade. “When you lose, it smacks you right in the face the second the ball hits the sand.” Paolo Nicolai and Daniele Lupo beat Rogers and Dalhausser 21-17, 21-19, fighting off one last rally to advance to the quarterfinals and put a surprising end to the Beijing gold medalists’ Olympic run. Although the Italians were one of the last teams to qualify for the LondonGames,itisthethirdtime they have beaten Rogers and Dalhausser. “We’ve won two times against them, but everything is a battle,” Nicolai said. “They are the best team in the world, I am sure. If we play in another match, they can win the gold medal.” The Italians went 1-2 in the preliminary round, losing not only to top-seeded Emanuel and Alison of Brazil but also to an Austrian team that did not make the medal round. That forced Italy to play a lucky loser match on Friday night. They beat Canada to earn a matchup with the defending champions. That turned out to be bad luck for the Americans, who finished poolplayunbeaten:Thecombination of 6-foot-8-inch Nicolai blocking at the net and Lupo chasing down balls behind him is a mirror image of the U.S. pair. “People say, ‘They’re the young Phil and Todd,’” said Rogers, who has said he will retire from international play after the Olympics. “I guess they ’Phil and Todded’ us to death.” The 38-year-old Rogers has always been a cerebral player — his nickname is “The Professor” and his Twitter handle is @professortodd. It’s a sense he’s developed over more than a decade on the world’s beaches. But Lupo, who just turned 21, proved every bit as cagey. “You don’t see many 21-yearolds with Todd’s type of game,” Dalhaussersaid.“They’rebasically the younger version of us.” Italy has never won a medal in men’s or women’s beach volleyball, a sport that has been dominated by the Brazilians and the Americans since it became an Olympic sport in 1996.

Achievement for Muslim women is a sham LONDON — The judo match between a young Saudi and her Puerto Rican opponent was not, as the International Olympic Committee shamelessly called it afterward, “a great message to women.” It was a sham. It was no more competitive, in its own way, than the badminton matches that got eight athletes from four countries tossed from these games at midweek. As far as breaking barriers, it would have been like Jackie Robinson stepping up to the plate in a major league baseball game for the first time — and then laying down in the batter’s box. There’s no reason to blame Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani, one of only two women on the Saudi Arabian team. She walked into the arena blinking at the bright lights and never had a chance. She spent nearly all of the 82 seconds of her match against Melissa Moj-

OPINION

access to facilities and resources in schools and academies. In Saudi Arabia, not so much. For all the cheering inside the ExCel Center, no news reports or highlights of Shahrkhani’s match appeared back home. There were fears even before the competition that hard-liners in the ultraconservative kingdom, where women need a male relative’s permission to work, travel abroad and even check into a hospital, likely will try to make an example of Shahrkhani and her family. Some women who compete in underground sports leagues worry that instead of fostering more opportunities, the public display by a female athlete — even though Shahrkhani received an exemption to compete in a modified hijab — will result instead in a crackdown. What comes next is anybody’s guess. Still, when officials in Saudi Arabia announced Shahrkhani’s addition to the team, they couldn’t even be bothered to spell her name correctly. Her

age was listed as 16 by games organizers, as 19 on the Saudi Olympic website and as 17 by her father. What she said afterward, whispering in Arabic as her brother sat alongside, sounded only slightly more credible. “Unfortunately, we did not win a medal, but in the future we will and I will be a star for women’s participation,” Shahrkhani said. Maybe. But at the moment, girls in Saudi Arabia can’t attend physical education classes because there aren’t any. Women can’t jog in public or go to a gym. The few privileged universities whose women compete in sports do so only at private venues and makeshift stadiums. None of it is likely to change anytime soon, either, as long as the old-boy network that runs the kingdom can get away with parodies like this.

All-around champion begins whirlwind tour

By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

LONDON — Too excited to sleep and too early to wander the Olympic village, Gabby Douglas messaged her family and asked if they could have a video chat. When her mom turned on the computer, there sat her daughter, eyes wide, hands on her cheeks, mouth agape. “It reminded me of Macaulay Culkin in ‘Home Alone,”’ said Natalie Hawkins, Douglas’ mother. And this was before the 16-year-old Olympic all-around champion got her own cereal box cover, hobnobbed with Matt, Al and others at NBC’s “Today” show, and had tweet-happy celebrities eager to be her new BFFs. “It’s pretty exciting,” Douglas said Friday. “It really hasn’t hit me yet.” Apparently not. She forgot to bring her gold medal with her for the rounds of meet and greet. Hang on, kid, this is only the warm-

up. The Olympic all-around title is gymnastics’ biggest prize, and it can turn a sprite into an international superstar overnight. The world is still on a firstname basis with Nadia and Mary Lou, and Gabby could wind up being bigger than both of them. Adults want to hug her, and little girls shriek at the sight of her. Her smile alone is enough to dazzle Madison Avenue, and her personality gives new meaning to the word “outsized.” Not only is she the first African-American gymnast to win the all-around title, she’s the first to win any individual gold in gymnastics. Throw in her adorable “Flying Squirrel” nickname, and the back story of leaving home at 14 to pursue an Olympic dream and, guaranteed, her life will never be the same. “Oh my gosh, yes,” said Mary Lou Retton, whose all-around title in 1984 was the first by a U.S. woman. “She won’t know until she goes home.”

Those around her, though, are already getting a taste of things to come. Seconds after Douglas beat Viktoria Komova on Thursday night, talk show hosts David Letterman and Jay Leno had already contacted her agent, Sheryl Shade. Considering Oprah Winfrey tweeted her congratulations, it’s a safe bet she wants to have a chat with Douglas, too. Kellogg’s worked overtime to get her picture on the cover of a Corn Flakes box — not just any picture, mind you, but a photo of her on the medals stand. “It’s definitely an amazing experience,” Douglas said. Especially considering she wasn’t even in the conversation for the allaround title at the start of the year, and that she only turned pro in March after upstaging world champion Jordyn Wieber at the American Cup in New York. By midmorning Friday, Shade had already received more than 750 emails,

some simply congratulating Douglas, most from folks who wanted a piece of her — businesses, talk shows, magazines. And not just in the United States, either. “It’s the whole package,” said Shade, referring to Douglas’ appeal. “It’s her personality. It’s her freshness. She’s not been packaged.” Douglas is well aware her title carries weight beyond her sport — “I’m the first African-American to win the allaround, my name’s in the history books,” she said Friday — and she’s eager to embrace the responsibility. She wants to be a role model, particularly for minority children, and Shade said they’ve already talked to Kellogg’s about an outreach program. They’ve also been in contact with first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, aimed at tackling childhood obesity and promoting sports. “She’s going to break barriers on so many different levels,” Retton said.

PASSING Continued from Page 1B

ican teen, 19-year-old Elizabeth Beisel, claimed the bronze in that race. “I can’t believe what just happened,” said Franklin, who had dedicated her Olympics to victims of the theater shooting not far from her Colorado home. “In that last 25, I knew I was giving it everything I had because I couldn’t feel my arms and legs and I was just trying to get my hand to the wall as fast I could.” Right after Phelps was done, Ledecky — the youngest member of the U.S. team at 15 — nearly broke the world record to win gold in the 800 freestyle, denying Britain’s Rebecca Adlington a repeat before her home fans. Adlington settled for bronze in a race Ledecky dominated from start to finish, falling off record pace only in the last 15 meters. But no one has dominated like Phelps, who increased his career overall medal total to 21. “He’s the king of the Olympics Games,” said his butterfly rival, Serbia’s Milorad Cavic. Even though Phelps didn’t go as fast in the final as he did in the semifinals, he actually won by a relatively comfortable margin compared to his two previous Olympic wins in the 100 fly: fourhundredths of a second over Ian Crocker in 2004, then one-hundredth of a second — the closest race possible — against Cavic at the Beijing Games four years ago. That was the victory that kept Phelps on course to win a historic eight gold medals in China. This was about going out in style. Phelps slammed the wall in 51.21 seconds for payback against the guy who edged him in the 200 fly, Chad le Clos of South Africa. No gliding into this finish, the move that cost Phelps the gold in their first meeting. “My start of the meet wasn’t what we wanted, but I seemed to pick up some steam at the end of the meet,” Phelps said. He’s still in race mode, at least for one more day. Phelps covered the final 50 in 26.86. Le Clos was the only other swimmer to break 27, and three guys couldn’t go under 28. “I thought it would hit me a lot harder than what it is right now,” Phelps said. “I guess a lot of those emotions haven’t really come through my brain over the last week. Once I’m done and once tomorrow is over, I think there’s going to be a lot more emotion that really comes out.” Le Clos finished in 51.44, patting Phelps on the shoulder after tying for silver with Russia’s Evgeny Korotyshkin. Cavic tied for fourth in 51.81, not even close to Phelps in their final meeting. “I cannot be compared to Michael Phelps,” said Cavic, who also plans to retire after the London Games. “I’m a one-trick pony.” That’s certainly not the case with Franklin, who is swimming seven events in London. “Missy The Missile” has certainly lived up to her nickname, completing a sweep of the backstroke events in a time of 2 minutes, 4.06 seconds, easily eclipsing the record of 2:04.81set by defending Olympic champion Kirsty Coventry at the 2009 worlds in a now-banned bodysuit. Russia’s Anastasia Zueva took silver, a body length behind Franklinin2:05.92.Beiselputasecond Americanonthemedalpodiumin 2:06.55, while Coventry finished sixth. “I could never dream for it to happen like that,” said Franklin, who also has a bronze in her first Olympics and one more race to go in the 4x100 medley relay.

Furyk, Woods headed in opposite directions

The Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio — Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods each carried momentum into the second round of the Bridgestone Invitational. That meant the best 36-hole score for Furyk in his PGA Tour career, and the worst start for Woods in nearly fourth months. Furyk had another good day with the putter, making a few birdies early and saving par from the bunker four times on the back nine at Firestone for a 4-under 66 and a two-shot lead over Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain. It helped that Furyk opened with a 63 on Thursday afternoon, allowing him to turn around Friday morning and try to resume his good play. That’s what he did, starting with a tricky birdie putt on the second hole and following his lone bogey with a 20-foot birdie on the ninth. He was at 11-under 129, two shots clear of Cabrera-Bello, who had a 65. Louis Oosthuizen used his putter from just off the ninth green to finish with a birdie and a 65, leaving him three shots behind going into the weekend of this World Golf Championship. Jason Dufner had a 66 in the afternoon and was four shots behind. Woods, a seven-time winner at Firestone, can’t seem to get anything going. He threw away three shots on the back nine Thursday, the last one a three-putt on the 18th hole for a 70. He started his second round by driving into a bunker and making a bogey on the 10th hole, and it never got much better. For the second straight day, he had to lay up with his third shot on the par-5 16th. And the low point of his putting woes came on No. 7, when he stuffed his tee shot inside 5 feet and three-putted for bogey.

Woods had a 72 and was at 2-over 142, leaving him 13 shots behind on the course where he had never finished worse than fifth the first 11 times he played. It was his highest 36-hole score to par since his 3-over 145 start at the Masters. RENO-TAHOE OPEN

RENO, Nev. — Alexandre Rocha had seven birdies and an eagle to take the second-round lead in the Reno-Tahoe Open. The 34-year-old Brazilian had 24 points in the modified Stableford scoring system that gives players eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse. Winless on the PGA Tour, Rocha opened birdie-birdiebirdie-eagle on Nos. 10-14 and overcame three bogeys. J.J. Henry had his second eagle of the tourney, and John Mallinger had six birdies to move into a tie for second at 22. First-round leader Andres Romero of Argentina and Arjun Atwal of India had 21 points, and 2010 Reno-Tahoe winner Matt Bettencourt followed with 20. John Daly was seventh with 19. He birdied six of his last 10 holes.

Feds probing mortgage insurance

B R I E F

Jobs report boosts stocks

A surge in hiring last month got a big welcome on Wall Street Friday. The Dow Jones industrial average ended a four-day losing streak and had its best day since June 29. Markets had been slumping all week after central banks in the U.S and Europe took no new action to shore up the economy, as investors had hoped. The Labor Department’s closely watched monthly jobs report gave investors assurance that the U.S. economy may be doing better on its own. U.S. employers added 163,000 jobs last month, far more than the 100,000 economists were expecting. Oil prices also rose as investors became more optimistic about the economy. Benchmark crude shot up $4.27 to $91.40.

By DANIEL WAGNER AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON — The government’s consumer finance watchdog is investigating mortgage insurance deals between banks and the insurers American International Group Inc., MGIC Investment Corp. and Genworth Financial Inc. The three companies said in public filings this week that they had received subpoenas from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for information about captive mortgage reinsurance deals. They did not respond to requests for comment Friday. Borrowers have alleged in multiple civil lawsuits that mortgage insurers paid millions in kickbacks to banks in exchange for a slice of the lenders’ mortgage-insurance business. Mortgage borrowers whose down payments are less than 20 percent typically must buy private mortgage insurance that protects the bank in case they default. In a 2009 case filed in Pennsylvania, borrowers said Countrywide Financial Corp. encouraged them to use specific mortgage insurers. In return, they said, the mortgage insurers purchased reinsurance from a unit of Countrywide. Countrywide is now part of Bank of America. The reinsurance deals unfairly add to people’s monthly payments while offering them no direct benefit, said Adam Levitin, a visiting professor at Harvard Law School. “There really isn’t any insurance here, it’s just cash going around in a loop,” he said. “It’s really as if you’re paying a higher mortgage rate.” The CFPB’s subpoenas, called Civil Investigative Demands, mean that its enforcement division has launched a preliminary probe of the matter. The investigation could result civil charges against the companies, or might be resolved without any formal action. A spokeswoman for the CFPB said the agency does not comment on, confirm or deny activities by its enforcement team.

Knight Capital survives

After a grisly two days, Knight Capital got a few breaks. The battered trading firm, whose software glitch briefly sent stock trading into chaos on Wednesday, reportedly got a new line of credit, which was crucial after the company drained its resources to pay for Wednesday’s debacle. The stock, which had shed threequarters of its value over the previous two days, jumped 57 percent.

ELLESSE BOUTIQUE

Kohut moved her Ellesse Boutique women’s clothing store to Midtown Village on South Main Street last month.

Kohut worked in nursing for 20 years but turned her love of fashion into a

business that was first located at 100 Wyoming Ave., Wyoming. “I’m already seeing a lot more foot traffic” at the new location, Kohut said. She is reluctant to describe the store by particular brands, since she carries clothes and accessories that catch her eye on buying trips to places such as New York City and Las Vegas. “My concept was to bring New York here” in the form of designer clothes not available locally, she said. While her target audience is working women, the move to Wilkes-Barre has led her to broaden her outlook.

“With moving down here and the colleges being here I’ll bring in some things that are still designer but more affordable for college kids,” Kohut said. The 1,100-square-foot store carries her grandmother’s Italian name. In addition to clothing it carries shoes, handbags and fashion accessories. Ellesse Boutique is located next to the Katana Japanese restaurant and is open Monday through Saturday.

Chef Hilary White’s home kitchen in Palmetto, Ga. She recommends stainless-steel tables, storage shelves and carts.

By FELICIA FEASTER

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

TLANTA — Though a chef’s at-home kitchen might conjure up visions of a high-tech food lab with commercial-grade appliances and stainless-steel surfaces, the reality looks slightly different.

The most consistently desired feature in many Atlanta-area chefs’ kitchens

— an open floor plan — has less to do with replicating a commercial kitchen and is more about making cooking a communal, accessible experience. Atlanta-area chefs share their tips for making a home kitchen work efficiently. Asha Gomez is the owner of the South Indian restaurant Cardamom Hill and the creator of the Spice Route Supper Club, which operates out of her Atlanta kitchen. “Because I entertain a lot, I like for my guests to be with me in the kitchen,” Gomez said of a cooking area that is open to the entire first level of her home. “You connect with people in a more intimate way than you would in a professional kitchen,” said Gomez, who can fit up to 30 guests in her kitchen area. Asha Gomez’s tips: • Airtight glass jars on the kitchen counter allow for immediate access to the mostused spices. • An open floor plan is critical when you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so guests can interact with the chef. • Bring the outdoors inside with large windows or doors to outside. Chefs spend a lot of time in windowless

commercial kitchens. For their home kitchens, they often choose a room with large windows, access to a yard and other ways to bring the outdoors in when they are logging long hours at the stove. ••• Hilary and Jim White are the executive chef and general manager of the Serenbe, Ga., restaurant the Hil. Their 100-year-old Chattahoochee Hills, Ga., farmhouse contains a renovated, open kitchen that the Whites designed to suit their food-centric lives. The Whites’ kitchen includes a number of commercial-grade features such as an industrial meat slicer; commercial sink with drainboards on both sides sourced from a Fairburn, Ga., restaurant supply shop; and a Five Star range with four burners, griddle and convection oven. One innovative feature of the kitchen is the placement of the range in See KITCHEN, Page 3C

Executive Chef John Hudak Jr. does his fancy cooking at Vanderlyn’s Restaurant in Kingston and says he’s more of a meat-and-potatoes guy at home – on the rare occasions when he is home.

Cooking at home is rare for some local chefs By MARY THERESE BIEBEL mbiebel@timesleader.com

Ask local chefs if a photographer and reporter can visit their no-doubt splendidly appointed home kitchens and you might get an “lol”(laughing-out-loud note), at least from Ruth Corcoran of Cork Bar & Restaurant in Wilkes-Barre. It’s not that she doesn’t have a nice kitchen at home. It’s just “very under-used,” because she works at her restaurant five nights a week and uses many of her off nights to check out other restaurants. See CHEFS, Page 2C

aster, Higher, Stronger” is a fine motto and not only because I award extra points for anything that comes from the Latin. But honestly, don’t the Olympics have a special way of making an average Joe or Jane watching at home feel slower, lower, weaker pretty quickly? Thank heaven for badminton. No offense to those who’ve risen to the rafters in this official Olympic sport, but I’m convinced it was put there to remind the rest of us what’s possible if we apply ourselves. We’re not all inhumanly flexible or superhumanly strong, but certain skills are in the eye of the beholder. Remember when you used to whack those plastic projectiles called birdies (or shuttlecocks) around your backyard? Yeah, well, if you’d kept at it, think where you could be today. Fortunately, the Olympics are organic and flexible. New sports – think curling – do find their way into the Of all the cateGames, giving gories I can conmore of us the ceive, I’d probably potential for offibe best at furnicially recognized greatness. ture relocation. I have a big list Solo and team. of should-be It’s as much athOlympic sports, starting with letic feat as menbeanbags. tal workout. Some call it Baggo and others cornhole, but I call it for what it is. After all, the object is simply to toss bags filled with beans at a board with a hole in it for points. Played it competitively all my life, mostly on the Fourth of July, when relatives from roughly 8 to 80 would line up their chairs on the driveway to watch, cheerlead and possibly participate. Players deposited a quarter in a jar, and it was winner take all. Oh, those were the days. Dreamed and played big. Still count on one day making a long-overdue U.S. team. In the meantime, I must stick to my Weekend Warrior-dom. Ever wonder why we don’t have our own Olympics? Of all the categories I can conceive, I’d probably be best at furniture relocation. Solo and team. It’s as much athletic feat as mental workout. Take it from an addict. The motto? Where there’s a will there’s a way. Don’t ever tell me a couch won’t fit up a stairwell. The key skill? Pivoting, of course. (Watch Ross and Rachel demonstrate on an old episode of “Friends.”) Some upperbody strength also helps, of course. I also might have a fighting chance at shabby-to-chic competitive spray-painting, which, if you’ve never dabbled, puts some real pressure on the upper arm while simultaneously demonstrating the steadiness of your hand. Other categories I’m not so hot at – “assembly required!” – so I can only marvel at the things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard. How about spotlight-bulb changing? An extension ladder is nice, but, in modern-day suburbia, it might not be enough. Sometimes you just need two guys and a well-placed window. Call it a twist on the trust-fall game. One has to be willing to let the other hang him upside down from a dazzling height while he reaches to retrieve the dead bulb and replaces it with a fresh one in record time. Medal-worthy. Mothers and children best look away.

Then there’s John Hudak Jr. from Vanderlyn’s Restaurant in Kingston, who’s willing to talk about his kitchen and tools, but admits it’s difficult to find him home. “My last day off was (July 25) and my next projected day off is Sunday,” he said early this week. Chefs are busy people who typically start work early and finish work late. “We can work a 12- or 14-hour day,” Hudak said. “Sometimes chefs are too tired to eat when they go home,” said Kate Gabriele, host of “Cooking with Kate” at Rustic Kitchen inside Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township. “Sometimes there’s nothing wrong with a grilled-cheese sandwich.” “I do the fancy stuff here (at Vanderlyn’s),” Hudak said. “At home, I’m big on meat and potatoes.” And grilling. When he’s not busy at the restaurant, Hudak likes to grill at home – anything from steak and lobster to corn,

This home, Plan HMAFAPW00714, by Homeplans.com, offers tremendous curb appeal with varying hipped-roof planes. The floor plan covers 2,946 square feet of living space on one level. Classical detailing includes well-proportioned columns below a modified pediment gable and masses of brick punctuated by corner quoins. Inside, the central foyer with its high ceiling leads to a hallway lined by arched colonnades. On the right is the living room; to the left, the formal dining room is well defined but not closed off. Right across the hall, the sunken family room, spacious with its high, sloping ceiling, contains a built-in media center wall, and a fireplace flanked by doors to the entertainment patio. The kitchen and morning room enjoy plenty of space and sunshine. An island adds to the abundance of counter space in the U-shaped cooking area, with a snack bar perfectly positioned for easy meals. For nighttime entertaining, a wet bar waits nearby. At the end of the evening, find plenty of quiet in the split bedrooms. Two secondary rooms share a full bath on the left side,

peaches and pineapple. His home kitchen actually has two stoves, with eight burners, two ovens and a stainless-steel hood. When he’s preparing a winter holiday meal, he said, “sometimes by default people who are there will watch.” Those guests will likely see him wielding what he considers the most important equipment: a good knife. “As far as food processors, I don’t use a lot of that. To me a good knife and a good cutting board are essential.” Gabriele likewise is a fan of a “good working set of chef knives.” If you’re set up a kitchen, she recommends knives, a grill pan for stove-top use, and a goodquality Dutch oven like hers – a 6-quart, cast-iron model with an enamel lining. “It’s great for short ribs, soups, even piggies. It goes from stovetop to oven, and it’s so versatile,” she said. “It really holds the heat.” “My other favorite thing is my Crock-Pot,” she said. “Put your whole chicken in there with water and veggies, and when you come home you can cook pasta and make soup.”

the kitchen island, so that Hilary White’s back isn’t to her guests when she cooks. A serious glassware collector, White would love to add a butler’s pantry to her kitchen. “We pretty much eat at the house every night. ... we enjoy having friends over,” White said of her much-used home kitchen. Hilary White’s tips: • Check restaurant supply shops for features such as stainless-steel tables, storage shelves and carts. • A restaurant-grade oven is not a great choice. “The amount of BTUs that it consumes, it’s just not energy-efficient,” White said. Instead, choose an industriallooking stove geared toward the home cook. • A rolling cart on wheels for moving hot pans of food or for storage is a handy addition to a home kitchen. ••• Keith Robinson, owner of the event company Gloriosa, has a 9,000-square-foot commercial kitchen in Atlanta. But for more intimate events, Robinson uses the kitchen in his 1841 Palmetto,

Ga., farmhouse for entertaining. His home kitchen contains three refrigerators including two SubZeros and one Traulsen; a six-burner Viking cooktop; and two Viking dishwashers. Keith Robinson’s tips: • Functionality doesn’t have to rule out beauty. You will be spending a great deal of time in your kitchen. Design it to be comfortable and pleasing on a daily basis. Don’t let hyperfunctionality dictate all design features. Robinson’s counter-height kitchen island is a 19th-century Belgian fixture from a retail store with both a pine and a marble surface. Robinson’s hand-washing sink is an old copper planter set into the countertop. • Multiple refrigerators are a great feature for the ambitious home cook. “Anything that you can do to do as much prep in advance, the better off you’re going to be when it comes time for putting things together,” Robinson said of the benefit of plenty of cold food storage. • Open shelving allows for easy access to tools. • Multiple or commercial dishwashers makes entertaining so much easier. • For a serious home cook, consider a six-burner stove.

Here are favorite features in some Atlanta-area chefs’ own home kitchens. • “I have a four-burner island suite Wolf range at home with an exhaust hood that is the centerpiece of the kitchen. It rocks.” — Joe Truex, Watershed • “A brand-new Lang 84 Deluxe smoker ... is part of my ’outdoor kitchen’ in my backyard!” — Jonathan Fox, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q “I think the most critical feature a home kitchen needs is an ample pantry. Most kitchens I see have small appliances, gadgets, and pots and pans cluttering up the top of the work counters. A proper pantry should rival a garage in size!” — Lance Gummere, the Shed

at Glenwood • “A good hood vent for real ventilation, because I do love frying chicken, and when I had a less-equipped house, it was always a frying session accompanied by the blaring soundtrack of the smoke alarm. (And) an extra dishwasher, because if you have eight people over for dinner and drink three types of wine, glassware piles up. It’s a luxury but well worth the investment.” — Hugh Acheson, Empire State South • “I think the best feature a home kitchen can have is a good assortment of pots and pans. ... My most prized possessions are a set of vintage Le Creuset casserole pans that I picked up in France last summer.” — Julia LeRoy, Watershed Park 75 chef

Then there’s bat-trapping. I’ve only had to do this once in my life (plenty enough, and I wimped out anyway), but I heard a most touching story in a recent eulogy and wish to award the rock star a posthumous Gold. Think two fully armored kids (helmets, bats, gloves, that sort of thing), wailing and screeching about the spawn of Dracula in their midst. A calm father walks into the room, backs the divebomber up

against a wall, clamps it with his bare hand, opens the window … Catch and release. Then he tells them to keep the racket down. Classic. Stories like this deserve more recognition. Glad I can at least give Mr. John “Jake” Luksic of Dallas, who died at 82 (while on an adventure in Alaska), his due here.

Reading diary opens door to dialogue between mother and daughter Dear Abby: I’m a 16-year-old girl who accidentally left my diary on the counter and my mother read it. When she told me, I was disappointed and hurt. She now knows I struggle with depression and have done things I’m not proud of. I was angry and expected an apology because it was a violation of my privacy. She claims she had the right to read it because I left it on the counter, and if I didn’t want her to see it, I shouldn’t have left it there. Regardless of where my diary was, I don’t feel she had the right to go through it because it’s not hers. I told her I want an apology and

DEAR ABBY ADVICE I am willing to rebuild that trust. My mom said there is no reason to rebuild it or to apologize, and she did nothing wrong. Am I wrong for wanting an apology and a better explanation for why she did it? — Disappointed Daughter Dear Disappointed: Your mother read your diary because it was out in the open and she was curious. Does she owe you an apology? Perhaps. However, if her level of communication with you is so poor that you live under the same roof and she hasn’t

noticed your struggle with depression — whether situational or chronic — and offered to help you find help for it, then what happened may have been a blessing. What you need with her is a closer relationship, not a combative one. Her job as a parent is to help you, and that includes teaching you to make the right choices. Dear Abby: A bridal tea is being held for my niece soon. The invitation says, “Hats and dresses, please.” I was also told verbally by the mother of the bride (my sister) that they want everyone attending to wear hats. I told her I’m very uncomfortable wearing a hat, but would put flowers in my hair to “jazz it up” a bit. Last night, my brother-in-law called asking what I was wearing to

CRYPTOQUOTE

the tea. My first reaction was that he was joking — so I asked if he thought that it was even worth a conversation. He said if I don’t wear a dress and hat, to not bother coming. I was so shocked that I said OK and hung up. I am very sad that I would not be welcomed without the hat — something so superficial. If appearances are more important than having me there, then I really don’t want to attend. I would, however, send a note and gift and also attend the regular shower being planned if invited. I don’t want to alienate the family. How do you think I should handle this? I am lost for words — although you wouldn’t know it by my rambling on. Thanks for your advice. — Rambling Auntie

Dear Rambling Auntie: Obviously, your sister and her daughter are more concerned with the fantasy of how things will look at this tea than the feelings of those who will attend. People like that are easily offended/ alienated and carry grudges. Because you don’t want to cause a rift, buy a cheap hat and go to the tea. While sending a note and gift in lieu of attending is more than what most people would do under the circumstances, to keep peace in the family, put in an appearance. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Once you decide what you’re going to do, you snap to it. But the deciding takes much longer than usual due to the plethora of choices. Friends await your answer. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You rarely fall into a “blue funk,” because your mental habits don’t like to go there. With enough rest, good nutrition and a steady source of amusement, your mood will stay buoyant. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You ride the line between romantic and realistic. As much as you’d like to believe in a fairytale, there’s something inside you that won’t buy in all the way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your mood is mighty fine, though it will take some work to keep yourself upbeat. Put some fun on the books. A scheduled event you can look forward to will keep your spirits lofty. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contrary to what Copernicus proposed in the 16th century, the planets do not orbit in perfect circles around the sun. Though imperfect, their journey is consistent and predictable, kind of like your orbit of a certain loved one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be put on the spot. It will feel like you’re doing an interview whether or not that is really the case. Answering questions that are out of the ordinary is made simple by your honest nature. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting where you want to go will not require that you be assertive. Luckily, you can accomplish this without being pushy. Your polite smile opens doors.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A loved one is bothered by something but isn’t ready to talk about it yet. Don’t push it. Remember that a sympathetic ear is also a patient ear — and is always ready to listen. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Simple gestures are the most effective, especially if the effect you are going for has to do with romance. You’ll be surprised at how much can be accomplished with intentional eye contact. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Uninterrupted, focused time has bearing on a relationship, but not as much as the intermittent in-between time does. It’s the way you are when your guard is down that will matter most. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Giving too much can be a problem. There’s a point at which it’s very uncool and countereffective to do so. Read the situation at hand, and take your cues from those who are more involved in it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though our solar system is composed of mostly empty space, today you may feel like you still don’t have enough of it. Your time alone is precious, and you’ll use it well, possibly doing nothing at all. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 4). This month brings funding for your fond wishes. You may be unaware of how inspiring you are, but someone is enraptured by you over the next six weeks. In September, you’ll pull together a group for a common purpose. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 4, 14, 39 and 18.

2013 Acura ILX has manageable price tag By David Undercoffler Los Angeles Times (MCT)

W

ith summer barreling through the calendar faster than you can say “water wings,” itʼs likely you have a family reunion looming on the horizon. As friends and co-workers will tell you, there are generally a few minefields that are best to avoid at such potentially volatile family gatherings. These include the alarmingly yellow potato salad, political affiliations and showing up alone - again. Maybe bring Acuraʼs all-new ILX instead. Consider what this compact, almost-luxury sedan comes with: a handsome exterior and manageable price tag to make your parents proud. A button-worshiping and tech-heavy interior so your oily-faced nephew finally thinks youʼre cool. And a lack of space, power and aptitude for fun, lest your Uncle Larry think youʼre getting too glib for your britches. Thereʼs nothing like a neutered, wellmade, conspicuously moderate car to bring the family together. The front-wheel drive ILX starts at $26,795 and is more or less a bedazzled version of the Honda Civic. Thus the two share a trio of engine choices. Acura expects a vast majority of buyers to choose the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit I spent most of my time in. Its displacement has been bumped up from 1.8 liters in the Civic and it now gives the ILX 150 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. As you may have guessed, 150 horsepower does not a quick car make. This ILX often felt underpowered, especially on the freeway. Acura does deserve some kudos for smoothing out the engineʼs character compared with the version in the Civic. The only transmission available is a five-speed automatic, and itʼs capable but not extraordinary. (The lack of a sixth gear shows the perils of relying too heavily on an economy car for your foundation.) Paddle shifters are a nice touch. This engine is rated at 24 miles per gallon in the city and 35 on the highway. In 220 miles of testing, I averaged 24.5 mpg. The ILXʼs driving dynamics were similarly competent yet unenthused. Itʼs perfectly capable of getting you where you need to go without fuss, but donʼt look to it for a particularly engaging experience. This seems like a lost opportunity to introduce the Acura brand as a product thatʼs fun to pilot. Wind noise is nicely isolated,

We Need Your Help!

but the ILX clatters over bumps and potholes like its humble cousin and not the luxury car it wants to be. More power - and fun - is available in the form of the optional, 2.4-liter engine ripped right out of the Honda Civic Si. It gives you 201 horsepower and 170 poundfeet of torque and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Although I wasnʼt able to sample this power plant

in the ILX, Iʼve driven it in the Civic Si, and itʼs a revhappy joy-machine. One has to wonder why Acura didnʼt make it standard equipment on the ILX and skip the smaller engine altogether. After all, an ILX with the Premium package is $30,095, regardless of which of these two engines you choose. Acura chalks it up to the smaller engineʼs (minor) advantage in gas mileage. Although that could be the case, it seems like Acura also didnʼt want the demi-luxury ILX to encroach on the territory of the larger TSX, which has that bigger engine as standard. Finally, Acura offers the ILX with a hybrid powertrain, again from the Honda Civic. This $3,000 upgrade has 111 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque from a 1.5-liter engine and an electric motor. Itʼs paired with a continually variable transmission and is estimated to get 39 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway. Turning to the metal thatʼs wrapped around these engines, Acura has done a great job of making the ILX safely handsome. Save for similar profiles that feature short trunk lids, youʼd be hard pressed to see any resemblance of the lesser Honda in this Acura. Thankfully, Acura also did away with the imprudent

and garish metal grills of some of its other vehicles. Instead, the ILX is fitted with a much smaller chrome strip up front, which ties in well with a sleek and sporty visage that should appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Inside, Acura has also nicely delineated the ILX from the Civic. The cabin is solidly bolted together and finished with a soft-touch dashboard. The seats are comfortable throughout, though in the rear they seemed to be more supportive than those up front. The model I tested was the $32,295 ILX Tech, which adds options such as leather seats that are heated in the front, a navigation system with real-time traffic and weather updates, a 10-speaker sound system and a backup camera. The systems worked well together, but the dashboard layout is plagued by a miasma of buttons orbiting around an enormous knob that serves as your primary controller. This made for a steep learning curve and a huntand-peck-style of finding the right button that made me feel like a toddler learning to type. A steering wheel equally festooned with buttons didnʼt help. My only other quibble with the ILX interior was its tight visibility; this car felt small only when you were looking out of it. The A-pillar around the windshield seemed to cut into your sight lines when looking to the left and right, and a trio of headrests in the back seats cut into the already small rear window. Consider removing them entirely if your back-seat passengers are few. You can choose a car, but you canʼt choose your family. As such, Acuraʼs ILX excels at modesty. Its centrist compromises on horsepower and space are perfect for navigating the minefield that is a family gathering. Your ace in the hole is the fact that the ILX is assembled right here on U.S. soil, at Hondaʼs Greensburg, Ind., plant. That should get your sister-inlaw to stop quietly judging you long enough to pass the watermelon. Now, whoʼs hosting Thanksgiving?
