Lightning kills 1, hurts 9 at race Multiple bolts hit at Pocono Raceway as fans stream out.


USAIN BOLT SETS RECORD Ever the showman, Jamaican Usain Bolt kept right on running after winning the 100-meter run in Olympic record time for a victory lap that included high-fives for front-row fans, a pause to crouch down and kiss the track and even a somersault. Thousands in the crowd chanted the champion’s name: "Usain! Usain! Usain!"


LONG POND – What was a happy day for winning NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and his fans turned into a nightmare at Pocono Raceway after one person was killed and nine others injured by lightning strikes Sun-

day afternoon just after the Pennsylvania 400 was called early because of storms. As race cars were being covered and fans were trying to get away from the torrential downpours, multiple lightning bolts struck, two of them injuring 10 fans. One was later pronounced dead on arrival at Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg. One of the injury-inducing strikes occurred in the parking

lot behind the grandstands and the other was near gate No. 3, track spokesman Bob Pleban said. Pleban said four of those injured were transported to Pocono Medical Center. Two had minor injuries, one had moderate injuries, and the fourth had critical injuries and eventually died. An emotional track President Brandon Igdalsky, who also expressed his condolences for the

victims, made the announcement of the fatality at about 7:45 p.m. “Unfortunately, a member of our raceway family here, a fan, has passed away,” he said. Two other race attendees were taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, one with moderate injuries and the other with minor injuries. Three more were taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital

Center-Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township, near Allentown. A tenth person was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown and was in critical condition, Pleban said. The storm, which anyone who had access to any weather website knew was on its way for at least 30 minutes, arrived at about 4:40 p.m., causing NASSee LIGHTNING, Page 8A

Truckin’ for 35 years, 286,726 miles

Mercedes-Benz truck has served Swoyersville business since 1977. By MARY THERESE BIEBEL

Conrad Baut put the truck in a shallow ditch, denting a fender and causing his sister Karen to tumble from the truck’s berth, down on top of him and another brother, Gerhard. “Oh, what’s Dad going to say?” Conrad Baut remembers worrying. “I’m the first one to christen his truck.” When the trio of siblings reached a pay phone, they realized their father’s first concern was that no one was hurt. His second question was whether the

Dr. James E. Hansen, head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, talks about his conclusions on climate change at his office in New York.

Global warming blamed NASA scientist says work shows crazy weather is so rare that it’s not random. By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON — The relentless, weather-gone-crazy type of heat that has blistered the United States and other parts of the world in recent years is so rare that it can’t be anything but manmade global warming, says a new statistical analysis from a top government scientist. The research by a man often called the “godfather of global warming” says that the likelihood of such temperatures occurring from the 1950s through the 1980s was rarer than 1 in 300. Now, the odds are closer to 1 in 10, according to the study by NASA scientist James Hansen. He says that statistically what’s happening is not random or normal, but pure and simple climate change. “This is not some scientific theory. We are now experiencing scientific fact,” Hansen told The Associated Press in an interview. Hansen is a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York and a professor at Columbia University. But he is also a strident activist who has called for government action to curb greenhouse gases for years. While his study was published online Saturday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, it is unlikely to sway opinion among the remaining climate change skeptics. However, several climate scientists praised the new work. In a blunt departure from most

climate research, Hansen’s study — based on statistics, not the more typical climate modeling — blames these three heat waves purely on global warming: • Last year’s devastating Texas-Oklahoma drought. • The 2010 heat waves in Russia and the Middle East, which led to thousands of deaths. • The 2003 European heat wave blamed for tens of thousands of deaths, especially among the elderly in France. The analysis was written before the current drought and record-breaking temperatures that have seared much of the United States this year. But Hansen believes this too is another prime example of global warming at its worst. The new research makes the case for the severity of global warming in a different way than most scientific studies and uses simple math instead of relying on complex climate models or an understanding of atmospheric physics. It also doesn’t bother with the usual caveats about individual weather events having numerous causes. The increase in the chance of extreme heat, drought and heavy downpours in certain regions is so huge that scientists should stop hemming and hawing, Hansen said. “This is happening often enough, over a big enough area that people can see it happening,” he said. Scientists have generally responded that it’s impossible to say whether single events are caused by global warming, because of the influence of natural weather variability. However, that position has been shifting in recent months,

as other studies too have concluded climate change is happening right before our eyes. The science in Hansen’s study is excellent “and reframes the question,” said Andrew Weaver, a climate scientist at the University of Victoria in British Columbia who was a member of the Nobel Prize-winning international panel of climate scientists that issued a series of reports on global warming. But there is bound to be continued disagreement.

Party will highlight volunteer efforts District A Committee expands events for Sept. 8 outing in W-B. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – Residents of South Wilkes-Barre will once again be partying in the park thanks to the efforts of a group of volunteers intent on improving their community. Sponsored by the District A Committee, the third annual “Party in the Park,” set for Sept. 8 in Miner Park off Old River Road, promises to be the best outing

yet, complete with music, food, fun and games for all ages, said committee member Rick Gazenski. “Every year we expand. It’s really exciting this year,” Gazenski said. “We have a car show, a Harley-Davidson (club) and remote-controlled airplanes and helicopters coming in.” The community gathering is among several notable activities sponsored by the District A Committee, a group of volunteers who raise money to fund various community projects within WilkesBarre’s District A, which encompasses most of South Wilkes-Barre and Goose

Island. In the past three years the group has raised more than $50,000, Gazenski said. Its projects have included the construction of masonry dugouts at the South Wilkes-Barre girls softball field; the replacement of fencing and repairs to bleachers at the South Wilkes-Barre Little League field and the purchase and installation of lighting and park benches in Lafayette Park. The group is currently finishing up its latest project – the construction of dugouts for baseball at Gibby field, located near the entrance to Barney Farms.

“We know the city can’t provide everything. It just doesn’t have the money,” Gazenski said. “We wanted to keep the district safe and keep kids busy. … A group of seven of us decided to raise funds every year to make this happen.” The projects take a lot of work, but Gazenski said the reward in seeing the community come together makes it all worthwhile. “We always get, ‘You’re doing such a great job, thank you so much.

WILKES-BARRE – Kevin Davis refuses to let his past define him. Although the 1989 Meyers graduate spent a few months in a correctional facility shortly after high school, he went on to complete nursing school and to work in that field. That determination has motivated him to take on yet another project: writing, directing and acting in a film titled “Man in Box.” “So many people have believed in me during my life,” said Davis, “I truly want to give back to the Wilkes-Barre area.” He gives special credit to the teachers and staff at Meyers High School, who he said provided him with a wonderful foundation for his future. He said that during his incarceration, he

Harveys Lake resident Michelle Boice recently looked up several property sales in Nanticoke and was disturbed to find all six significantly below Luzerne County’s assessed values. A Realtor for more than 15 years, Boice was researching sales for a woman who received a government letter questioning why her aunt’s home sold markedly below Boice the county assessment. The aunt’s assets were under review for a nursing home placement. The largest gap was on a Noble Street home that is assessed at $130,000 and sold for $40,000 in May 2011. The five other properties sold between $40,500 and $49,900 and had assessments of $53,600, $69,900, $75,000, $76,100 and $105,800. The differences between sales and assessments ranged from 19 to 161 percent. “You could do the same study in any town and find the same thing. The assessments are ridiculously off in this county,” said Boice, a vocal critic of the county’s 2009 reassessment. County Assessment Director Tony Alu doesn’t disagree with Boice’s assertion that many values are off, but said a recent state analysis of more than 3,200 county property sales in 2011 indicates assessments are still accurate enough to delay another reassessment.

Controller Griffith wants to snuff out smoking on county property LUZERNE COUNTY Controller Walter Griffith has had it with cigarette butts littering county government property. He asked county council Tuesday to ban smoking on all county property. “If you want to smoke, smoke on your own property,” the controller said. A citizen chimed in later in the council meeting, suggesting the county install more ashtrays. Council didn’t act on the matter, but County Councilman Harry Haas told Griffith he opposes a smoking ban. “While you usually have some really great ideas, I am vehemently op-

JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES LUZERNE COUNTY BEAT posed to taking anything like that away from our people,” Haas said. He noted the stressful working conditions he witnessed at the prison on a recent tour. “If our corrections officers want to have a smoke on a break, all the power to them,” Haas said. • A tidbit of related history: Smoking was allowed in the county courthouse cafeteria until November 2007, when former commissioners banned the use of tobacco within 20 feet of all county buildings.

Though the cafeteria ban seems like a no-brainer today, it was controversial at the time because the eating area was a coveted indoor haven to light up. Commissioners had banned smoking in all county buildings in 1994 but allowed its return in the cafeteria in 1996 after complaints, including a loss of business for the cafeteria’s nonprofit operator. • County Councilman Rick Morelli participated in Tuesday’s council meeting via speaker phone, which is permissible, but Councilwoman Elaine Maddon Curry complained when his connection temporarily ended after the vote for a new council chairperson. The vote for chairman was close, with six of the 11 members picking Tim McGinley for the leadership

post. Without Morelli’s vote for McGinley, council would be locked in a tie. Maddon Curry said rules for telephone participation must be established because council members shouldn’t be able to vote on one matter by phone and miss the lion’s share of the meeting. Morelli reestablished connection for other parts of the meeting and told Maddon Curry through the speaker phone that the same rules should apply to council members who leave meetings early. Part-time council members can’t always attend meetings in person with full-time employment obligations, Morelli said. • A county council committee will See BEAT, Page 4A







Barletta: End gassing of animals

Congressman seeks to bring attention to “this cruel manner of euthanizing an animal.” By JERRY LYNOTT

The effort to ban the gassing of stray animals gathered another supporter in U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta. The Republican congressman from Hazleton and pet owner introduced a non-binding resolution Thursday on the practice with the intent of bringing attention to “this cruel manner of euthanizing an animal.” In a press release, Barletta

said he would like to see states such as Pennsylvania that permit the practice to take action to make it illegal. Barletta Barletta, whose family has a dog and two cats, decried the lack of restrictions to prevent an official who is unable to locate an animal’s owner from taking it to a facility to be gassed. “This is unconscionable in the United States in the 21st century,” he said. Prior to his resolution, the state Senate addressed the is-

sue with a bill to ban the use of carbon dioxide chambers. It was referred to the Agriculture and Rural Affairs committee in March. Senate Bill 1329 has the support of the Federated Humane Societies of Pennsylvania, said Cindy Stark, vice president of the organization’s executive board. Starke, who also is the shelter manager of the SPCA of Luzerne County in Plains Township, said gassing is used on a very limited basis. “Intravenous injection is the recommended method,” she added, and is used at the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Last month, the shelter, which serves the entire county, received more than 600 animals. “We take all the animals that don’t have any other place to go,” Starke said. Pet owners can take a few simple steps, she explained, to reduce the number going to shelters and prevent overpopulation: make sure pets have identification, spay and neuter them and keep them under control. “This is such a preventable problem,” Starke said. She suggested anyone with questions about the programs and services offered at the SPCA contact it at 570 825-4111.

Despite Scouts’ actions, gay ban stands

Area native among several Eagle Scouts protesting policy by returning their medals. By DAVID CRARY AP National Writer

NEW YORK — For the physician in Illinois, the attorney in Kentucky, the arts editor in Oregon, their Eagle Scout medals were treasured reminders of youthful achievement. Yet each is parting with his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts’ recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. “I can no longer maintain any connection to an organization which actively promotes such a bigoted and misguided policy,” Dr. Robert Wise of Chicago wrote to Scout headquarters in Texas. “To that end, I am interested in removing all evidence that I was ever a Scout.” Wise, 59, is among several dozen former Eagle Scouts who have taken such steps after the July 17 announcement that the Boy Scouts of America, after a confidential two-year review, were sticking with the divisive, longstanding policy of excluding openly gay youth and adults as members and leaders. Another of the protesters is attorney Jackson Cooper, 32, a former senior patrol leader of Troop 342 in his hometown of Louisville, Ky. In an open letter, he said he was unsure if any of his fellow Scouts were gay. “But I do know that my now deceased mother, a lesbian, would not have been allowed to serve as a den mother if her orientation had been public knowledge,” he wrote. “The thought that I have invested such a large part of my

life with an organization that would have turned my own mother away breaks my heart.” Also returning his medal was Martin Cizmar, 31, arts and culture editor of Willamette Week, an alternative newspaper in Por-

tland, Ore. He tweeted the news: “Just mailed my Eagle Scout medal back to the BSA to protest the ban on gay scouts. Kinda sad, but important.” In a letter sent to BSA head-

quarters along with the medal, Cizmar detailed his scouting career with a troop in Tallmadge, Ohio. “Though I did not know at the time, I was acquainted with a number of gay Scouts and Scouters (adult leaders),” he wrote. “They were all great men, loyal to the Scout Oath and motto and helpful to the movement. There is no fair reason they should not be allowed to participate in scouting.” Also turning in his medal was former Edwardsville resident Matthew Kerns, who received the award in 2003 just before he turned 18. He now lives in Jacksonville, Fla. Deron Smith, the Boy Scouts’ national spokesman, said there was no official count at his office of how many medals had been returned. He also noted that about 50,000 of the medals are awarded each year. “We’re naturally disappointed when someone decides to return a medal because of this single policy,” he said. “We respect their right to express their opinion.” Beyond the Eagle Scout protests, the Boy Scouts’ reaffirmation of the no-gays policy has drawn condemnation from liberal advocacy groups, newspaper editorialists and others. In Washington state, Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna, an Eagle Scout, joined his Democratic opponent, Jay Inslee, in suggesting the policy be changed. The leadership of the Scouts’ most influential religious partners — notably the Mormons, Roman Catholics and Southern Baptists—appearstosupportthepolicy. Even liberal politicians seem reluctant to press the issue amid a tense national election campaign.

Marcellus Shale is top gas field

The Powell Shale Digest reports on sheer volume of production in only five years. By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — The Marcellus Shale is about to become the most productive natural gas field in the United States, according to new data from energy industry analysts and the federal government. Though serious drilling only began five years ago, the sheer volume of Marcellus production suggests that in some ways there’s no going back, even as New York debates whether to allow drilling in its portion of the shale, which also lies under large parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. The top spot for the Marcellus “doesn’t surprise me,” said Jay Apt, a professor of technology at Carnegie Mellon University. “But will it lead to industries that spring up to use that gas?” he asked, adding that much of the bounty could also end up being shipped to Canada, the Gulf Coast or overseas. In 2008, Marcellus production barely registered on national energy reports. In July, the combined output from Pennsylvania and West Virginia wells was about 7.4 billion cubic feet per

day, according to Kyle Martinez, an analyst at Bentek Energy. That’s more than double the 3.6 billion cubic feet from last April, and represents more than 25 percent of national shale gas production. That’s neck-and-neck with production from the Haynesville region in Arkansas and Texas, but new drilling permits there have declined sharply. The Powell Shale Digest, an industry newsletter based in Fort Worth, Texas, concluded that a recent report from the U.S. Energy Information Agency means “it is reasonable to assume” that the Marcellus has or will soon pass Haynesville as the top producer. The Marcellus Shale is a gasrich formation of rock thousands of feet below ground. Advances in drilling technology made the shale accessible, which led to a boom in production, jobs and profits, and a drop in natural gas prices for consumers. But there are also concerns about pollution and impacts to roads and other public services. Apt said having a natural resource bounty is one thing, and using it wisely is another. The current wholesale price of natural gas is about $3 here, but $12 or more in Europe and Japan. “It’s clear people will want to export” the Marcellus gas, Apt said, adding that such an out-

come could lead to what economists call “the resource curse,” which is when the general population hardly benefits, while a few get very rich. But Apt said there are some hopeful signs, such as the Shell Oil Co. plan to build a petrochemical plant to turn Marcellus gas into other consumer and industrial products including plastics. It’s widely believed that if Shell moves ahead with plans to build that $2 billion plant north of Pittsburgh, other small industries will follow. For now, it looks like the Marcellus region will be in the top production spot for several years, analysts say. While drilling has slowed, there were still 288 new

well permits issued in May, and over 1,200 for the first five months of the year, according to data from LCI Energy Insight, an El Paso firm that tracks national energy trends. Martinez noted that several major Marcellus region pipeline expansions are scheduled for completion this fall, which should allow production to grow even more, and make it easier to ship gas to other parts of the northeast. That could boost wholesale prices, he said, and keep energy companies focused on the region. “Long-term, being able to move the gas out of the region will give some support to those prices,” Martinez said.



BOICE Continued from Page 3A

The state benchmark for assessments, known as a common level ratio, was 109.4 for the county in 2011. Ratios above the ideal score of 100 indicate more properties are selling below assessments. Reassessment benchmark Alu won’t recommend another reassessment unless the ratio is15 percent above or below100, and the county’s 2012 ratio won’t be issued until next summer. He blames the county’s declining sale prices on the sluggish real estate market and believes the score will move closer to 100 again when the economy rebounds. Boice concedes the economy hurt real estate values but believes the effect was minimal. She said the region was largely insulated from drastic market swings experienced in California, Arizona, Florida and other areas. “In our area, property values increase and decline slow and steady,” she said. Data from the Greater WilkesBarre Association of Realtors shows real estate transactions handled by members totaled $215 million last year, $233 million in 2010 and $217 million in 2009. Association officer Bob Rundle, owner of Coldwell Banker Rundle Real Estate, said the market is “slowly coming back.” He declined to critique the county’s assessments, saying he doesn’t “pay a whole lot of attention” to them. “An assessment is the same as an appraisal – an opinion of value. You could have three people analyzing the same property -all coming up with different figures,” Rundle said.

A review of 10 random property sales recorded Aug. 2 shows six sold below the assessed values. Here’s the breakdown by property location, with the assessments followed by the sales prices: • Hazleton -- $82,900, $15,000 • Kingston Twp. -- $514,900, $470,000 • Plymouth -- $78,600, $75,000 • Pittston Twp. -- $68,900, $33,000 • Butler Twp. -- $206,500, $130,000 • Kingston -- $43,200, $35,000 • Exeter -- $117,900, $125,000 • Ross Twp. -- $221,300, $266,000 • Hazle Twp. -- $63,100, $95,000 • Plains Twp. -- $72,200, $115,000

ASSESSMENT CHALLENGES Sept. 4 is the deadline to file assessment appeals for 2013. Appeal forms are available at the assessor’s office in the county courthouse annex on River Street, Wilkes-Barre, or on the county website, (click on departments and assessor).

paying more than their fair share, warranting assessment appeals. “It makes my blood boil when anyone in Luzerne County brags about the accuracy of our valuations,” Boice said. “It’s such an injustice.” Alu said another countywide reassessment is the only corrective option. A revaluation could reduce assessments due to value decline, but property owners may end up paying the same because taxing bodies would increase millage rates to generate the same amount of revenue after reassessment, he said. The county’s last reassessment cost $8 million and was challenging because the values Cause for appeals had not been updated since Boice said she wants to make 1965.

Syrian forces keep fighting for Aleppo


Militiamen appeared to step up guerrilla-like forays in Damascus. By BRIAN MURPHY Associated Press


Wildfires threaten power in La Palma

A man looks out from inside a house threatened by wildfire in La Palma, Spain. Wildfires fanned by fierce winds and high temperatures raged across Spain’s Canary Islands of La Palma and La Gomera on Sunday. Flames are threatening to cut off La Gomera’s phone communications and have forced the evacuation of hundreds.

BEIRUT — Syrian forces threatened Sunday to mount a “decisive battle” for Aleppo even as rebels clawed toward the city’s ancient center under intense bombardment and strafing from warplanes. In the capital Damascus, militiamen appeared to step up guerrilla-like forays in central districts that were once firmly in the regime’s hands. The twin fronts reflected the rising stakes for both sides and a possible sig-

nificant evolution in rebel strategies. Opposition forces appear to be shifting toward more hit-and-run strikes in Damascus and elsewhere to tie up Bashar Assad’s forces and blur the lines between rebel and government-held territory. The biggest prize of the ambush brigades so far — 48 abducted Iranians branded as spies by rebels — was put on display in a video that carried a warning that all Iranians in Syria would be “captured or killed” because of Tehran’s strong backing for Assad. Iran said those captured when their bus was commandeered on Saturday were pilgrims visiting an important Shiite shrine on

the outskirts of Damascus. The abductions threaten to suck Iran deeper into Syria’s civil war and the wider political brinksmanship around the region. Iran claims it has no fighting forces aiding Assad, but it has sharply amplified its criticism of countries supporting the rebels such as neighboring Turkey and Gulf states led by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In further signs of the growing proxy nature of Syria’s conflict, Iran was forced to reach out to Turkey and Qatar with appeals to help return the captives. The daylight hijacking on the main airport road in Damascus also raises questions about the regime’s ability to

Romney against stimulus

itt Romney is calling for “something dramatic” to help the econoM my recover, but he’s not saying exactly

what. The Republican presidential candidate says he opposes another federal stimulus package and new government programs. He also says that if the Federal Reserve were to undertake another “massive” program of buying government bonds and mortgage-backed securities, with the goal of driving long-term interest rates even lower, it wouldn’t help the recovery. “I can absolutely make the case that now is the time for something dramatic and it is not the time to grow government. It’s the time to create the incentives and the opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses big and small to hire more people and that’s going to happen,” Romney said an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”


Israel upgrades defense

Israel has upgraded its top-tier Arrow II missile defense, a Defense Ministry official confirmed Sunday, as the country girds for possible attacks from Iran and Syria. Sensors, command and control equipment and radar have been enhanced to improve reach and accuracy, the official confirmed without elaborating. He would not say how many Arrow II batteries are deployed around the country and spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the military’s preparations. Israel has developed a network of air defense systems to parry various threats it sees from its enemies, including the Arrow, a joint project with the Boeing Co. in the U.S. that is designed to shoot down incoming missiles launched as far away as Iran.

She described the blaze as hopscotching as it burns some areas and leaves others untouched.

7 dead in shooting Man opens fire at Sikh temple in Wisconsin By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press

OAK CREEK, Wis. — A gunman opened fire Sunday and killed six people at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee before he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with the first officer to respond to the chaotic scene, authorities said. The shootings happened before 10:30 a.m., when witnesses said several dozen people were gathering at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin for a service. Hours of uncertainty followed as police in tactical gear and carrying assault rifles surrounded the temple with armored vehicles and ambulances. Police in Wisconsin said the FBI will handle the investigation of shootings at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said the case is being treated as a domestic terrorism case and the FBI is better equipped to handle that. A crowd gathered outside as officers descended on the temple and some spoke of talking or exchanging text messages with people inside. Some said they had heard there were multiple shooters, others spoke of women and children held hostage. The first official word from police was that they didn’t know how many victims or suspects were involved. But a short time later, after an extensive search of the temple, authorities said they did not believe there was more than one shooter. Jatin Der Mangat, 38, of Racine, said his uncle Satwant Singh Kaleka, the temple’s president, was one of those shot. Mangat didn’t know how serious Kaleka’s injuries were. “This is nerve-racking. No one really knows what’s going on. Nothing like this has ever happened before,” Mangat said. Later, when he learned of the deaths, he

said, “It was like the heart just sat down. This shouldn’t happen anywhere.” Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt said the gunman was shot to death by the first officer to arrive at the temple. It’s unclear how many others were wounded. Wentlandt said he had been told the officer who shot the suspect and another person had been taken to hospitals. He said the officer was shot multiple times, but was in surgery and is expected to survive. The spokeswoman for the area trauma center said three victims were being treated there, including the officer in surgery. Wentlandt did not identify the suspect or say what might have motivated the shootings. Family members identified some victims.


Hot summer kills fish

Thousands of fish are dying in the Midwest as the hot, dry summer dries up rivers and causes water temperatures to climb in some spots to nearly 100 degrees. About 40,000 shovelnose sturgeon were killed in Iowa last week as water temperatures reached 97 degrees. Nebraska fishery officials said they’ve seen thousands of dead sturgeon, catfish, carp, and other species in the Lower Platte River, including the endangered pallid sturgeon. And biologists in Illinois said the hot weather has killed tens of thousands of largeand smallmouth bass and channel catfish and is threatening the population of the greater redhorse fish, a state-endangered species. The fish are victims of one of the driest and warmest summers in history.

control key parts of the capital and protect the symbols of Assad’s power such as ministries and government offices— already breached once by a bombing last month that killed four members of Assad’s inner circle including his brother-in-law and the defense minister. The pro-government Al Watan newspaper said the Syrian army is bracing itself for a “decisive battle” to clear Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, from rebels. It gave no possible timetable and for more than a week, activists have claimed the government is gearing up for an all-out offensive on the northern commercial center — another critical battleground for Assad’s regime to survive.

PHOENIX — A possible plea deal in the deadly Tucson shootings that wounded then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords would send Jared Lee Loughner to prison for the rest of his life, according to a person familiar with the case. A court-appointed psychiatrist will testify Tuesday that Loughner is competent to enter a plea in the shooting rampage that killed six people and injured 13, including Giffords, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. A status conference in the federal case had already been scheduled for Tuesday in Tucson. The person, speaking Saturday about upcoming events in the case, said the plan is for Loughner to enter a guilty plea in the murders and attempted murders. The plan is contingent on the judge in the case allowing Loughner to enter the plea. The Los Angeles Times reported earlier Saturday that Loughner was set to change his plea. Bill Solomon, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, said he could not comment on Loughner’s case and the possibility of a guilty plea. The Pima County attorney’s office, which has said it could also pursue state prosecution of Loughner, declined to comment, said spokeswoman Isabel Burruel Smutzer. Loughner had pleaded not guilty to 49 federal charges stemming from the Jan. 8, 2011, shooting outside a Tucson supermarket where Giffords was holding a meet-andgreet with constituents. Authorities said he shot Giffords, opened fire on the crowd and was subdued by bystanders. Giffords was shot in the head and subsequently left Congress to devote her time to rehabilitation. Giffords and her husband were traveling in Europe, and spokeswoman Hayley Zachary said Saturday she had no information on developments in Loughner’s case.

NASA’s high-tech Rover getting ready for ‘7 minutes of terror’ By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer

PASADENA, Calif. — NASA’s most high-tech Mars rover on Sunday zeroed in on the red planet where it will attempt a tricky celestial gymnastics routine during a “seven minutes of terror” plummet through the atmosphere. The Curiosity rover was poised to hit the top of the Martian atmosphere at13,000 mph. If all goes according to script, it will be slowly lowered by cables inside a massive crater in the final few seconds. NASA was ready for the “Su-

per Bowl of planetary exploration,” said Doug McCuistion, head of the Mars exploration program at NASA headquarters. “We score and win or we don’t score and we don’t win,” said McCuistion. If all goes well, mission control at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory should hear a signal at 10:31 p.m. Pacific (1:30 a.m. Eastern). The space agency warned that confirmation could take longer if an orbiting spacecraft that’s supposed to listen for Curiosity during the descent is not in the right

place. Curiosity’s trajectory was so accurate that engineers decided to wave off a last chance to tweak its position before atmosphere entry. Sunday’s touchdown attempt was especially intense because NASA is testing a brand new landing technique. Due to the communication delay between Mars and Earth, Curiosity will be on autopilot.

Romney wins friends with recent Israel visit


HERE IS NO doubt that Mitt Romney is a great friend and supporter of Israel. During his short but significant visit to the country, the former Massachusetts governor said all the right things. He backed, inter alia, “any and all measures” to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons, Israel’s right to defend itself (adding “it is right for America to stand by you”) and its claim to Jerusalem as its capital – much to the chagrin of the Palestinians. He argued that Israel’s security is a “vital national security interest of the United States” and advocated a strong partnership between the two countries. Romney received a warm welcome from Israeli leaders, especially Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who noted that they had been friends for

decades. Netanyahu stressed that international sanctions against Iran, led by the United States, must be backed by a credible threat of military action. But Netanyahu, whose relations with President Barack Obama have sometimes been strained, must be careful not to appear to be backing Romney. As Israel’s leader, he cannot publicly favor one candidate over another. Romney’s trip to Israel, like Obama’s before the last presidential campaign, clearly won him friends here and might boost his chances among American Jews and perhaps Christian voters, too. Both men are friends of Israel; we believe their friendship will endure, irrespective of who wins the presidential race. It is in both their interest and ours. The Jerusalem Post

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Olympians who dedicate their lives to athletic excellence should not be punished when they achieve it.” U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio The Florida Republican recently introduced the Olympic Tax Elimination Act, which would exempt U.S. athletes from paying taxes on their medals. The U.S. Olympic Committee awards $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze.

Gun laws spur tragedy


MERICA’S permissive gun laws, fetishized in their laxness as the epitome of American freedom by the powerful National Rifle Association, are a common denominator in mass shootings around the world. From Aurora, Colo., to Norway to Toronto and Mexico, the stubborn refusal to link the worldwide availability of American-supplied semi-automatic weapons, accessories and ammunition to tragedy after tragedy is a black mark. In the case of the suspected Aurora killer, James E. Holmes was able to order 6,350 rounds of various types of ammunition over the Internet without triggering any alarms. He might as well have been ordering housewares.

His case is similar to that of the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, who killed 76 people a year ago. In Mexico, which has strict gun laws, the drug cartels have armed themselves like a paramilitary operation with easily available American assault weapons and used them to kill hundreds of innocent people. In Canada, a rising tide of American weapons spilling over the border is defeating the country’s attempts at gun control. The biggest tragedy, of course, is in the United States, where only killings on the scale of Aurora now make the national news but as many as 15,000 die in gun homicides every year.

Euro confidence crisis


EAN-CLAUDE Juncker, the president of the Eurogroup organization of eurozone finance ministers, said that the single currency had reached a “decisive phase.” In the near three years since the sovereign debt crisis first erupted, how many times has that phrase been trotted out, only for this slow-motion car crash to continue? The evidence is growing that the eurozone’s political leaders are grappling with this crisis without any democratic mandate to shore them up. The

most striking sign of this was an opinion poll that showed that a majority of German voters want to return to the Deutschmark. This hardening of opinion against monetary union is significant. It is the voters of Germany who are going to have to dig the deepest to deliver “whatever it takes.” When the people on whom the entire edifice of the single currency is built want out, it is clear the euro is facing an existential crisis that will take far more than further fiscal juggling to resolve.

et me start by saying I am not a lifelong Penn State football fan. Throughout my radio career, I’ve adopted the local college team as my team. I’ve followed and been a fan of West Virginia, Ohio State, The Citadel, Colorado State, Central Florida and of course Penn State. There’s been a lot of talk of Penn State football recently in light of the sanctions dished out by the NCAA. It’s not going to be easy for anyone associated with the team. But this is not the time to abandon it. I think now more than ever you should be supporting the Nittany Lions. Buy a ticket. Wear blue and white. Go to a game. And cheer for the team. Recently more than 30 players on the team said they will stay at Penn State and not transfer to other schools. “We take this as an opportunity to create our own legacy,” said senior Michael Mauti. “This program was not built by one man and it’s sure as hell not going to get torn down by one man.” Well put. Don’t take out the horrendous acts of one man on the current team. Get your butt in the seats. Support the local businesses in State College. They need you now more than ever. We still are Penn State!

n all of the reports regarding the missing gasoline in the city of Wilkes-Barre and the mayor’s poor recordkeeping, here is what the mayor did not say: “I screwed up big-time and I apologize to the citizens of Wilkes-Barre who entrusted me to run this city. “I failed to follow the most basic of recordkeeping procedures. I did not keep a log book with odometer readings to substantiate miles driven for city business as required by IRS regulations and by the city. “I cannot prove how many miles I drove on city business or how many gallons of the gas I pumped into my private car(s) were for personal use. Worse, I responded to the story like a spoiled child might when caught doing something wrong. “I promise the good citizens of WilkesBarre that this will never happen again. I also apologize for the distraction this has caused and the cost to the city and state for any investigations forthcoming. I accept full responsibility. “Lastly, don’t trust any politician who

NCAA officials only serves to justify politically correct and overly harsh penalties applied against a fine university and its innocent victims, none of whom could change or control the actions of Jerry Sandusky and the five or six Penn State executives. This is why the NCAA should start policing itself and strongly monitor and control the many violations that continuously occur in NCAA football. Maybe, if this was done, there would be less reason to unreasonably issue severe penalties against innocent victims, as with Penn State.


s I listen to the pundits and critics discuss the Penn State University scandal and the NCAA penalties handed out, I’m amazed by the “political correctness” of all those who endorse these penalties. The question is this: Who are the victims of these penalties, which were brought about by the actions of five or six executives of Penn State? I contend that it’s every Penn State football fan, every student including the football players of the past 14 years who were denied their wins, the families of Penn State students and, as a matter of fact, every resident of State College who is blemished by the NCAA’s penalties. Why aren’t any of these five or six individuals suffering a specific penalty directed at them? In essence, these penalties reflect “negative reinforcement” rather than sanctions and directives that might act to reinforce future controls so that a handful of people could not control the actions of an entire university for a crime of this nature. The pompous announcement by the



he start of August signals another school year is just around the corner. For parents looking for fun ways to get their children ready to go back to school and in the learning mindset, I encourage you to look at Pennsylvania’s amazing collection of museums. As Pennsylvania’s tourism ambassador, it is my passion to visit and share recommendations on the commonwealth’s mustsee venues, including the museums, exhibits and historical sites that provide children with an opportunity to explore and learn. History comes to life at the No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum, located in Lansford at the foot of the Pocono Mountains. It is the world’s oldest continuously operated anthracite coal mine and welcomes visitors to travel by train 1,600 feet into the mountainside. Another must-see attraction, Galeton’s Lumber Heritage Museum welcomes families to experience the colorful heritage of the commonwealth’s prosperous lumber era and the life of a “woodhick” at the recreated logging camp. For families with younger children or those looking for a hands-on experience that covers a variety of subjects, there are options across the state. The Johnstown Children’s Museum at the Heritage Discovery Center encourages children to learn about Johnstown’s geography and history through exhibits such as The Water Room, which explores dam building and the effects of rain on mountains and valleys. The Children’s Museum in Bloomsburg features displays such as the Eastern Woodlands Longhouse that invites children to see how Native Americans lived.

CAR officials to throw a yellow caution flag and eventually call the race on lap 98, 62 laps shy of the advertised total of 160. Heavy rains and winds pounded the track as darkness closed in.. Lightning strikes were plentiful and thunder rolled over the Pocono Mountains as the storm moved from west to east. The track public address announcer asked fans to exit the metal grandstands because of the lightning but only after the race ended. As driver Kasey Kahne spoke to media in a post-race press conference, word began to spread among journalists that a lightning strike at the track had caused injuries. Shortly after Kahne left the center, Pleban confirmed that two people were struck by lightning and were taken to a local hospital. Later he said a third fan was also struck but was treated and evaluated by on-site emergency personnel and released. An hour later the number of those injured grew to 10. Despite the congested traffic leaving the venue, continued heavy rain and lightning prevented the use of a helicopter to transport the victims. At 4:21 p.m., about 30 minutes before the race was officially called, Pocono Raceway issued the following warning on its Twitter and Facebook accounts: “ATTENTION FANS: Severe thunderstorms are in the area which will produce high winds and lightning. Should arrive in 10-15 mins.” At 4:59 p.m., the following message was posted on the track’s Twitter and Facebook pages: “ATTENTION FANS: Be advised, seek shelter as severe lightning and heavy winds are in our area.” At 5:50 p.m., Igdalsky tweeted: “Hoping for the safety of all

He also is not adverse to his production ending up on “the big screen.” He believes the completed film will be of such high quality that it will be appropriate for commercial audiences. Davis welcomes volunteers and any area restaurants that might donate food to help feed his starving artists.

Please seek shelter as there is a lot of cloud 2 ground lightning.” Race winner Gordon said he felt for the injured fans and said he believed he knew exactly which bolts caused the damage. “There was a huge, huge crack of lightning; you could tell it was very close,” he said after he won his first race of the season and record sixth all time at Pocono. “The fans here are so loyal and so avid, they stick around,” he said. “It’s so unfortunate. You hate to hear something like that.” Pleban, calling the incident “a very fluid situation,” said he could not release information on the victims because family members “have not been sufficiently contacted” as of Sunday night. He said more information might be available today, and the track would release whatever it learns. A supervisor at Pocono Medical Center said she could not comment Sunday night. Sporting News motor sports reporter Bob Pockrass reported that Kyle Manger, a fan from New Jersey, said he saw people hit by the lightning near the Turn 3 grandstands. “Me and my friend just ran into our truck during all the nasty weather,” Manger told the publication. “The visibility was very poor and all of a sudden (I) saw a bolt of lightning right in front of our windshield. “When it became a little more visible, we saw two bodies next to a destroyed tent with people scrambling.” Manger said the lightning strike occurred about five to 10 minutes after the race was called. Multiple NASCAR drivers, fans and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey all issued statements or tweets expressing condolences for the victims throughout Sunday night.

That’s a record high, but in comparison, the Bauts’ Mercedes-Benz 1116 is a granddaddy of the road. It’s been part of the family since December 1977, when the late Gene Baut bought it from a Long Island dealership to replace a 12-year-old Ford truck. Already a fan of MercedesBenz automobiles, Gene Baut believed a truck designed by the same European company would serve the family business well, and “outlast two or perhaps three trucks similar to our C550,” Conrad Baut said. Logging 286,726 miles – so far – and closing in on the 35th anniversary of the purchase, the truck is well on its way to meeting the upper range of that prediction. As Conrad Baut wrote in an article for “Double Clutch,” a magazine published by the Antique Truck Club of America, “The Mercedes-Benz has carried tens of thousands of square feet of stained glass, hundreds of tons of marble fabrications, numerous over-sized loads of onion-shaped church steeples, scores of custom wood and bronze sculptural memorials, thousands of church doors, and has been across the country several times.” His dad drove it with “pride and precision,” said Conrad Baut, who felt privileged to start driving it when he was 17. Someday soon his own sons -- Henry, Peter and James -- may have a turn at the wheel, helping out at a business they can trace to their great-

graph, setting his retainer at $18,000 a year for seven hours of work a month. Additional hours are billed at $75 per hour up to 200 hours and $50 per hour after. Dallas School Board’s motion reappointing attorney Ben Jones II as solicitor for this school year at $39,000 gives no details of what the work entails. Wyoming Valley West Business Manager Joe Rodriguez noted the reappointment of attorney Michael Hudacek – paid $23,270 last year – is typically approved annually with no written agreement detailing the work covered. Outside counsel costs Yet in each of those cases the districts spent considerably more in legal fees than the solicitor’s retainer last year. Dean’s law firm – Elliott Greenleaf & Dean – did $29,961 of billable work beyond Dean’s retainer, and the district spent another $15,459 for legal work on special-education cases handled by King, Spry, Herman, Freund, and Faul. All told, Crestwood paid $63,420 in legal fees last year.


Employees of The Baut Studios Inc. with the 1977 Mercedes-Benz truck include, from left: Conrad Baut, Heide Cebrick, Mike Olsen, Gary Walp and Leonard Andes. Other employees who have helped refurbish the truck are Gerhard Baut, Jacob Baut, Bernard Kriso, Shawn Wheaton and Brad Lennon.

great-grandfather Jacob Baut, who came to America in 1885 from an area that is now Innsbruck, Austria. Over the years, the truck has transported such artwork as the “Healing Christ” sculpture designed and built by Gerhard Baut, which went to St. Agnes Medical Center in Philadelphia in 1985, and the “Coal to Diamonds” sculpture, also designed by Gerhard Baut, which was installed at Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs in Plains Township in 2008. Its next planned excursion is to Danbury, Conn., to deliver an onion-shaped cupola designed by Conrad Baut and Baut Studios employee Leonard Andes. But, first, Conrad Baut said, the truck needs new brakes. “I need a two-chamber master cylinder,” he said, explaining it’s getting harder to find replacement parts, despite the family’s purchase years ago of a spare truck from which several parts have already been “cannibalized.” In addition to the retainer for Jones, Dallas paid $83,153 to eight other law firms. Most was for special-education cases or labor issues,butthebiggestsinglechunk– $54,015 – went to Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald for a protracted battle with the Northeast Pennsylvania School District Health Trust, a consortium of districts formed to lower health insurance costs. Dallas and Pittston Area withdrew from the trust in 2007 and have been fighting to get what they contend is their share of a trust surplus. They have been winning the battle, and could end up reaping millions, as well as having the trust pay district attorney fees. Pittston Area spent $276,570 in legal fees last year. Of that, only $15,286 covered the retainer for attorney Joseph Saporito, who received another $12,013 for work outside the retainer, including tax claim sales and bond refinancing. Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald got the largest share of Pittston’s expense, $83,268, but four other firms were paid a combined $109,772 for work on special education cases. Those cases arise when a parent or guardian contends the district is not fulfilling its state and federal mandates in educating a child, Rodriguez said. Typically, districts settle out of court, agreeing to pro-

vide services or accommodations that satisfy the parents. The district often ends up paying the fees for the attorney who represented the parent as well, Rodriguez noted. At Wyoming Valley West, Rodriguez said the district spent $78,248 beyond Hudacek’s retainer, almost all of it on either specialeducation settlements or labor issues, most notably the successful negotiation of three contracts.

than the $10,000 retainer he received for six months as solicitor, and paid the firm of Pugliese, Finnegan, Shaffer & Ferentino $33,156 on top of the $10,000 retainer. Wyoming Area spent another $57,289 on eight other law firms. Information provided by other districts was not complete enough to make full comparisons. Wendolowski’s appointment as solicitor drew additional fire because he has served as assistant solicitor for years, with attorney Anthony Lupas in the solicitor’s slot. Lupas resigned last year after a severe fall, and has since been charged with running an investment scheme that bilked people out of at least $6 million over 18 years. The two attorneys operate separate law businesses. Public outcry flared when a Times Leader analysis showed legal fees skyrocketed in WilkesBarre Area in recent years, with payments to Lupas rising sixfold over three years. Combined, the district paid Lupas and Wendolowski $540,969 in calendar year 2011, with $328,956 of that going to Lupas. The school board hired a firm to conduct a forensic audit of bills from Lupas and Wendolowski dating back to 2006; the results are expected this month.

Hours add up Without the type of detailed agreement Wilkes-Barre struck with Wendolowski, districts can end up paying their solicitor more in billable work than in the retainer. In Hazleton Area School District, the combined retainer for Solicitor Christopher Slusser and Assistant Solicitor Ed McNelis last year totaled $16,544. Yet Slusser was paid $58,944 above that while McNelis was paid $17,352 beyond his retainer. The district spent another $111,597 on 10 other law firms. Wyoming Area had a similar, though less dramatic expenditure beyond the $20,000 paid for solicitor retainer (it changed solicitors six months into the fiscal year, but the retainer rate remained the same). The district paid attorney Raymond Hassey $11,236 more

The victory was also Gordon’s sixth at Pocono, breaking a tie with Bill Elliott for the most victories at the track. “Pocono has been a special place for us,” said Gordon, who won twice at Pocono because weather shortened the race. “We got a win here last year. It’s been a very interesting year to say the least.” NASCAR brought the cars to pit road on lap 98 because of weather after a crash on a restart on lap 91 knocked leader Jimmie Johnson and second-place Matt Kenseth from contention.

Bolt repeats as world’s fastest

The Shavertown resident repeated as the overall champion, shaving a minute off last year’s winning time. By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

LEHMAN TWP. – Known for its tricky Back Mountain hills and unpredictable weather, the Wilkes-Barre Triathlon tests an athlete’s mettle like no other local athletics event. Naturally, the race should benefit the younger runners with fresher legs. Sean Robbins, 43, and Amy Rummel, 41, proved that experience triumphs youth. The pair of quadragenarians raced to firstplace finishes at the 31st running of the Triathlon on Sunday. “Completely unexpected,” said Rummel, of Kalamazoo, Mich. “I was not planning on winning this race. I am 41 years old, and there were a number of people behind me. I was fully expecting a 20-yearold or a 30-year-old to kind of sneak up on me in one of the other heats.” “Someone needs to remind Sean that he’s an old man,” race official Mark Toretsky joked at the awards assembly. “And 43year-olds aren’t supposed to win back-toback triathlons. That’s amazing.” Robbins crossed the finish line first overall for the second consecutive year. Last year, the Shavertown resident became the first Wyoming Valley resident to win the See STRONG, Page 7B

American Gatlin takes bronze 8 years after gold By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer


Triathlon champion Sean Robbins is shown speeding along Alderson Road in Kunkle.

LONDON — Pulling away from the pack with every long stride, Usain Bolt crossed the finish line and wagged his right index finger. Yes, he’s still No. 1 in the 100-meter dash. Maybe not better than ever, but Bolt is definitely back. Only sixth-fastest of the eight runners to the halfway mark Sunday night, Bolt erased that deficit and overwhelmed a star-studded field to win in 9.63 seconds, an Olympic record that let him join Carl Lewis as the only men with consecutive gold

medals in the marquee track and field event at the Summer Games. “Means a lot, because a lot of people were doubting me. A lot of people were saying I wasn’t going to win, I didn’t look good. There was a lot of talk,” Bolt said. “It’s an even greater feeling to come out here and defend my title and show the world I’m still No. 1, I’m still the best.” Ever the showman, the Jamaican kept right on running for a victory lap that included high-fives for frontrow fans, a pause to crouch down and kiss the track and even a somersault. Thousands in the crowd chanted the

Major League Baseball players approved a split-season format. The New York Yankees, Oakland A’s, Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers were declared the first-half champions and automatically qualified for the divisional series. 1985 — The Major League Baseball Players’ Association went on strike. 1986 — The Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-11 in a record-setting battle of grand slams. Texas’ Toby Harrah hit a grand slam in the second inning before Larry Sheets and Jim Dwyer connected for grand slams in Baltimore’s nine-run fourth.

Maroney still sterling in vault

US women stay undefeated LONDON — Destinee Hooker scored 19 points and the undefeated U.S. women’s volleyball team wrapped up preliminary pool play at the London Olympics with a straight-set victory over Turkey on Sunday night. The top-ranked U.S. team was hurt in the third set when captain and threetime Olympian Lindsey Berg appeared to injure her left ankle. Foluke Akinradewo added 15 points in the 27-25, 25-16, 25-19 victory for the top-ranked United States, which had clinched the top seed in its pool for the Tuesday quarterfinals. Neriman Ozsoy scored 14 for Turkey, which had to wait until the conclusion of the late match between Brazil and Serbia to learn whether it would advance.

LONDON — McKayla Maroney didn’t need to look at the scoreboard. Neither did Louis Smith. The Olympic gold medals they expected to win were going to someone else. “It happens. It’s gymnastics,” Maroney said. “You can’t be perfect, and sometimes things don’t go as you planned.” Maroney wound up with a silver on vault after a rare fall Sunday, while Smith was on the wrong end of gymnastics’ tiebreak rules for a second straight Olympics. Despite finishing with the same score as Krisztian Berki on pommel horse, the Hungarian got the gold and Smith the silver because Berki’s execution mark was a tad better. Still, Smith was hardly going to complain. Four years after giving Britain its first Olympic medal in 84 years, he now has three. What’s more, gymnastics has become such a big deal in Britain that the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly

known as Kate Middleton, had a frontrow seat for the first day of event finals. Teammate Max Whitlock won the bronze on pommel horse, giving the British three medals — the same UP NEXT number they won Finals in men’s from 1908 to 2004, rings and vault, and women’s before the British uneven bars. renaissance began. 9 a.m. today “I could have TV: 8 p.m., NBC been standing here without a medal, tears running down my face,” Smith said. “I’ve got a second medal here. I’ve got three Olympic medals. All those years ago, I never thought I’d go to the Olympics, so I’m very happy right now.” In the other event final, Zou Kai won his fifth career gold medal, defending his title on floor exercise. He already had one gold from China’s victory in the men’s team competition last week,

and has three more from the Beijing Games. He’s got a chance to duplicate his Beijing three-peat on Tuesday, when he tries to defend his Olympic title on high bar. “I was really young and inexperienced in 2008. I was just a kid who focused on the competition,” Zou said. “I’m different now and wanted to be on top of the podium.” So did Maroney. The defending world champion on vault was considered pretty much a lock for the gold medal, which would have given the U.S. women three in the first three gymnastics events. Maroney never makes errors in training or in competition, and no one in the world comes close to her execution. She won her world title last year by almost a half-point and topped qualifying at these games by a similar margin. “I wasn’t focused on getting a gold medal,” the 16-year-old said. “I just wanted to prove to everybody that I could hit two vaults and I could try to do my best for USA.”

China takes top two spots in 3-meter final


Campbell’s win sets off British medal rush LONDON — Bantamweight Luke Campbell clinched the dominant British team’s first boxing medal of the London Olympics on Sunday night in a session marred by a series of unsightly heavyweight fights that probably will be decided outside the ring. Heavyweights Teymur Mammadov of Azerbaijan and Clemente Russo of Italy both clutched, grabbed and held their way through their quarterfinal bouts at ExCel arena, yet both highly ranked amateurs won narrow scoring decisions that surprised fans and enraged their opponents. The fighters from Belarus and Cuba said they’ll protest the decisions in an Olympics already featuring two overturned results. Amateur boxing’s governing body confirmed Belarus has protested Siarhei Karneyeu’s loss to Mammadov. Jose Larduet’s Cuban coach says they’ll protest his loss to Russo.

US stars showing ‘cutthroat mentality’ By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

LONDON — They call her “Six Feet of Sunshine,” but at night in London, the smile disappears and Kerri Walsh Jennings turns downright fierce. She did it again Sunday, when she and Misty May-Treanor beat Italy in straight sets to advance to the semifinals in the Olympic beach volleyball tournament. “I don’t want to let our opponents breathe. I don’t want to give them an edge. I don’t want them to feel comfortable for one second out there,” she said Sunday night after the win. “You need to have that cutthroat mentality. Not mean and not, ’I want to hurt you.’ It’s: ’I respectfully want to beat you and give you my best game.’ “Crush you, yes,” she said. “Not your soul. Just you, on the court.” The Americans have been crushing opponents for three Olympiads, sweeping to the gold medals in Athens and Beijing without even losing a set — 32 in a row over16 games, including their first two in the round-robin at the London Games. Even before that straight-set streak was snapped on Wednesday, though, the two-time defending champions had shown signs of

weakness. They lost in Moscow to China in June, then lost in straight sets in Rome to Marta Menegatti and Greta Cicolari, the same Italian pair they met in UP NEXT the Olympic quarterfinals on SunMay-Treanor/ day night. Walsh Jennings “I think we’re a vs. different team. Xue/Zhang We sold the old 5 p.m. Tuesday team and we TV: 5:30 p.m., bought a new MSNBC (joined team,” May-Treain progress) nor said after winning 21-13, 21-13 in a match so dominating it brought out tears from Menegatti during a changeover. “She was probably like, ’I don’t know what to do.’ And that’s how you get teams in trouble.” Menegatti, who’s 21, said she grew up idolizing May-Treanor. The Italians have only been playing together for three years, and their goal had been to qualify for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“She’s a young player, and she’ll learn” to control her emotions, MayTreanor said. “She has no reason to hold her head down whatsoever.” In the other quarterfinals, the No. 2 U.S. women’s team of Jennifer Kessy and April Ross beat Czechs Marketa Slukova and Kristyna Kolokova. The Americans will play reigning world champions Juliana and Larissa of Brazil, who beat Germans Sara Goller and Laura Ludwig 21-10, 21-19 in the last match on Sunday night. May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings will play China’s Xue Chen and Zhang Xi, which beat Austrian sisters Stefanie and Doris Schwaiger 21-18, 21-11 earlier Sunday. The Chinese pair, which won the bronze medal in 2008 but did not face Walsh Jennings and May-Treanor in Beijing, has beaten them three consecutive times, including a 21-14, 21-14 final in Moscow that was over in 34 minutes. Ross and Kessy played an extended first set, with each side fighting off several set points before Slukova spiked one into the net to make it 24-23 and then Kolokova hit one long. The Americans had a 16-9 lead in the second set and held on to win 21-18.

WIMBLEDON, England — Andy Murray stood with the Union Jack draped over his shoulders, an Olympic gold medal around his neck, flanked by the man he had just beaten, Roger Federer, and basking in the roar of the Centre Court crowd. No wonder the often dour Scotsman was grinning. Murray won one for the home team Sunday, beating Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the tennis final at Wimbledon. The victory marked a career breakthrough for Murray. He has lost all four of his Grand Slam finals, three against Federer, including Wimbledon a month ago. “It has been the best week of my tennis career by a mile,” Murray said. For Federer, the drubbing marked another Olympic disappointment. Playing in the games for the fourth time, he sought a victory to complete a career Golden Slam but settled for silver — his first singles medal. “Don’t feel too bad for me,” Federer said. “I felt like I won my silver, I didn’t lose it. So I feel really happy.” Murray became the first British man to win the gold in singles since Josiah Ritchie in 1908. Those games took place at Wimbledon, too. In the day’s first match on Centre Court, women’s singles champion Serena Williams teamed with sister Venus to win their third career doubles gold medal. They defeated Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4. Murray settled for a silver in mixed doubles with Laura Robson. They lost to Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi of Belarus 2-6, 6-3, 1-0 (8). Mike Bryan won his second medal of the weekend when he and U.S. teammate Lisa Raymond took the bronze in mixed doubles, which was back in the Olympics for the first time since 1924. Bryan and his brother Bob won gold in men’s doubles Saturday. Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova of Russia took the bronze in women’s doubles, while Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina won the bronze in men’s singles.

Iran’s Soryan wins gold LONDON — Hamid Soryan of Iran won an Olympic gold medal Sunday in men’s 55-kilogram Greco-Roman wrestling. The five-time world champion beat Rovshan Bayramov of Azerbaijan 2-0, 1-0 to become the first Iranian to win a gold medal in Greco-Roman wrestling. Iran has 30 overall medals in freestyle but had only two, a silver and a bronze, in Greco-Roman before Sunday. Bayramov, the defending world champion, lost in the Olympic final for the second straight time. He fell to Nazir Mankiev of Russia in Beijing.

LONDON — The Americans were at it again, putting up record numbers in another impressive offensive performance at the Olympic basketball tournament. This time it was the U.S. women’s team. Just days after the U.S. men shattered the Olympic record for points in a game, the women tied their Olympic mark in a 114-66 rout of China on Sunday. Diana Taurasi scored 22 as the women matched the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, but fell well short of the women’s Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004. China was able to hang with the U.S. for a quarter behind its own hot shooting before the Americans turned the game into a blowout with a huge second quarter run. The victory was the Americans’ 38th-

straight in Olympic play and gave them the top seed in the group for the quarterfinals. The U.S. will meet its northern neighbor Canada on Tuesday.

with 1:25 left in the first quarter after Song Xiaoyun hit a deep 3-pointer from way behind the top of the key. But then the Americans took over and took off, turning up their defensive pressure. Taurasi started the spurt with a layup and Angel McCoughtry converted two turnovers into easy lay-ins to end the first quarter. The U.S. kept the burst going in the second period getting layup after layup off turnovers. The defensive pressure was relentless. On one play, Taurasi stole the ball at halfcourt and while diving out of bounds to save it, flipped it ahead to Lindsay Whalen for two points drawing a loud cheer from the crowd. Taurasi hit two more 3s during the spurt — her second made it 52-34 with 3:27 left in the half. The Americans led 61-36 at the break.

tosterone. Everyone in the final broke 10 seconds except former world-record holder Asafa Powell of Jamaica, who pulled up with a groin injury. At Beijing four years ago, the 6foot-5 Bolt electrified track and field, winning gold medals in world-record times in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay — something no man had ever done at an Olympics. His 100 mark of 9.69 set there, the one that came despite some slowing down for celebratory chest-slapping, only lasted until the next year’s world championships, when he lowered the record to 9.58. But The World’s Fastest Man had been something less than Boltesque since then, in part due to a string of minor injuries to his back and legs. In 2010, he lost to Tyson Gay, the American who’s a past world champion and cried inconsolably after ending up fourth Sunday in a time (9.80) that would have been good enough to win every Olympic 100 gold medal other than the past two. A false start knocked Bolt out of the 100 at last year’s world championships, creating an opening for Blake. Then came recent, much-discussed losses to Blake in the 100 and 200 at the Jamaican Olympic trials. “The trials woke me up. Yohan gave me a wakeup call,” Bolt said. “He knocked on my door and said, ’Usain, wake up! This is an Olympic year.”’ Bolt, a fast runner who likes to drive fast, too, was involved in a wee-hours car crash in Kingston in June — not the only auto accident he’s been in. His publicist played down the seriousness of the latest episode, but the handwringing in Jamaica intensified after the poor performances at the trials a few weeks later. Bolt never let any of that affect him in London. “I had to show the world I’m the greatest,” he said. After easing up down the stretch and basically jogging through the finish while winning his semifinal heat earlier Sunday, he mugged for the cameras and said, “I’m back, baby. All day, every day.” Then he went out about two hours later and proved it, running the second-fastest 100 in history. He came to these Olympics with the stated intention of becoming a “living legend.” If he hasn’t accomplished that already, he’s sure close. Bolt begins defending his title in the 200 in Tuesday’s heats. He’s also part of Jamaica’s 4x100 relay team, of course, and wouldn’t rule out taking part in the 4x400 this time, as well.

South Africa’s Oscar Pistorius waves after running in the men’s 400-meter semifinal during the athletics competition in the Olympic Stadium on Sunday in London.

He’s just getting started By JOHN LEICESTER AP Sports Writer

LONDON—OscarPistorius’plannowisto go even quicker at the next Olympics. The double-amputee sprinter said he’s setting his sights on Rio de Janeiro in 2016 after finishing last in his 400-meter semifinal at the London games on Sunday night. “In 2016, I’ll probably be at my peak in Rio. I’m looking forward to that more than anything,” he said. He will turn 30 in November of that year. The South African still expects to run the 4x400 relays here, which start Thursday. Then he will try to defend his100, 200 and 400 titles at the Paralympics. After that, Pistorius’ immediate goal is to break 45 seconds in the 400. He ran 46.54 — way slower than his career best of 45.07 — in lane 5 on his carbon-fiber blades in the 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium on Sunday, before a packed crowd that again gave him a resounding cheer. His was nearly 2 seconds slower than the winner of his semifinal, Kirani James of Grenada, the world champion. The first double-amputee to compete at the Olympics was undone, as has happened so often, by his sluggish start — a result, in part, of not having feet to push off against the starting blocks. His reaction time out of the blocks was the slowest of the 24 semifinalists. “I don’t have ankle articulation so the start is always going to be one of my biggest downpoints in the race,” he said. “It’s just one of those things that I have to work on, and be as efficient at top speed as I possibly can.” “I believe next year we’ll definitely get under 45,” he said. He said he could do that by further trimming his weight and with more training to improve his ability to sustain speed over a longer distance. To compensate for his slow starts, he has to run harder, quicker. “That drifting in the first 30 meters is where my lack really happens. So for me to match

some of the other guys I just have to go out very hard,” he said. “So I’ve just got to learn and adapt that way. Unfortunately, it’s just one of those things. “I didn’t run the best race. I went out very UP NEXT hard,” he said. “It wasn’t 4X400 relay the best tactic for me. I Preliminaries would have had to run a 6:35 p.m. personal best, anyway, if I Thursday wanted to make the final.” Still, with his solo runs on the London track, he made history and achieved his goal of making the semifinal. “It just felt really magical,” he said. “If I could predict what it would feel like or imagine beyond my wildest dreams, this was probably 10 times that. “To step out in front of a crowd this massive, it’s a mind-blowing experience,” he added. “I’ve had support in the last couple of days like I have never felt before.” James immediately walked over to Pistorius after the race and asked to trade name bibs, to keep as a souvenir. The pair shook hands and hugged. “He’s an inspiration for all of us. What he does ... takes a lot of courage, just a lot of confidence,” James said. “He’s very special to our sport. “He’s a great individual and it’s time we see him like that and not anything else.” Pistorius had to fight all the way to compete at the games, taking his case to court to force his way into the most elite open competition. “For him to make it to the semifinals and continue to push, I would like to tell him to keep his head up and don’t get discouraged,” said Chris Brown, a former world indoors champion, who finished second in Pistorius’ heat and advanced to the final. “He had more pressure on him than anyone else, so I give him credit for coming out and performing under difficult conditions.”

LONDON — Once was enough. Carmelo Anthony doesn’t want to mess around against Argentina. Not after a close call with Lithuania. Anthony, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and the rest of the starstudded U.S. basketball team have now been tested at the London Olympics — and admittedly they weren’t quite prepared for it. The NBA’s best players face another challenge Monday night when they wrap up pool play against the Argentines, who at 3-1 are not to be overlooked. Anthony acknowledged the Americans might have been caught slightly off guard by Lithuania’s fight in a five-point victory Saturday. “It was a little bit tighter than what we expected,” Anthony said before practice Sunday. “Lithuania was focused, and it kind of caught us on our heels. We won’t get caught on our heels again.” Also on Monday’s schedule is the 400-meter final at Olympic Stadium, a race that will be missing some its luster: Defending Olympic champion LaShawn Merritt is out because of an injured left hamstring he hurt halfway through Saturday’s qualifying heat. Double-amputee Oscar Pistorius won’t be there, either. The South African sprinter nicknamed “Blade Runner” finished last in his 400 semifinal heat Sunday night. Across town at O2 Arena, Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas tries for a third gymnastics gold medal in the individual uneven bars — the first of her last two events at the London Games. Douglas, who also helped the U.S. capture its first Olympic team title since 1996, competes in the balance beam Tuesday.

James says the U.S. needs to get back to the basics against Argentina, which features NBA players Luis Scola and Manu Ginobili. “We have to defend and we have to rebound,” James said. “It’s a very good team and we look forward to the challenge. They play as a team and that’s what it’s all about.” James’ teammates and coach Mike Krzyzewski hope his performance against Lithuania will provide some momentum going into their next game. With the U.S. leading by one late against Lithuania, James hit a 3-pointer, then followed with a dunk off of a turnover to put his team ahead 92-86 with 3:41 to play. The NBA MVP from the champion Miami Heat also scored two more baskets over the final 2:10 and wound up with nine of the Americans’ final 12 points and 20 in all. Krzyzewski is also counting on more from Bryant as the stakes become higher. He went 1 of 7 for six points, and had two rebounds, an assist and three fouls in 20 minutes against Lithuania. The Americans’ priority is to lock up a No. 1 seed from their pool heading into the quarterfinal rounds, which will be played at the bigger, and soon-to-be-vacated, gymnastics venue. Argentina, meanwhile, is coming off Saturday’s 93-79 victory against Nigeria, a team the U.S. beat by 83.

Reid’s son found dead The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM — Garrett Reid, the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday morning in his room at the club’s training camp at Lehigh University. He was 29. The police chief at Lehigh, Edward Shupp, said a 911 call was made at 7:20 a.m., and that Garrett Reid was dead when a policeman arrived at the campus dormitory. A cause of death has not been determined. “There were no suspicious activities,” Shupp said. The 29-year-old Reid struggled with drug abuse for years and was imprisoned for a 2007 high-speed car crash in which another driver was injured. Police found heroin, which Reid AP PHOTO

restart – to take the lead just before rain began falling. It stayed that way as a violent lightning storm hit shortly after NASCAR red flagged the race. The event was called about 11 minutes later as fans scattered to their vehicles. Three fans were struck by lightning in the main parking lot behind the grandstands. “I can think of a handful of times we were in position to win and it didn’t go our way for whatever reason,” Gordon said. “To see this race unfold like it did certainly makes up for a lot of those woulda, coulda, shouldas this year.” The victory moved Gordon to 12th in the drivers standings and placed him in second for one of two wild card spots in the chase. The wild-card berths go to the two drivers 11-20 in the standings with the most wins. Kasey Kahne holds the top spot with two wins. Gordon wasn’t the only driver who benefitted from the storm. Kahne finished second, limping around the track on a flat right rear tire during the final caution period. “If it didn’t rain and the green flag would have come out, we would have ducked into the pits and been in the 27th spot,” Kahne said. The accident occurred as Johnson and Kenseth fought for position in turn 1. Johnson got into Kenseth, but was able to recover and finished 14th. Kenseth wasn’t as lucky as his No. 17 Ford spun and was T-boned by Denny Hamlin. “(Johnson) drove in really, really far and spun out underneath me and I got wrecked,” Kenseth said. Hamlin was treated and released at the infield care center

admitted to using, and more than 200 pills in his car. When he surrendered to begin serving his sentence in that case, prison guards found Reid had tried to smuggle prescription pills into jail. Reid seemed to have rebounded from his problems in recent times and was assisting the Eagles’ strength coaches at camp in an unofficial capacity, a notuncommon sort of role for NFL coaches’ sons. Many of the coaches and staff stay in the Lehigh dorms. In the midst of his legal troubles in his early 20s, Reid said he “got a thrill” out of being a drug dealer in a lower-income neighborhood just a few miles from his parents’ suburban Villanova mansion.

Martin Truex Jr. was third after he avoided the accident as well. “The biggest thing was nobody took tires,” Menard said. “We were all trying to save fuel because we knew the rain was coming. And a lot of guys had stuff all over their tires. Everybody was throwing stuff off their tires the last lap, trying to get them cleaned up before the restart.” Gordon finished 40th in the season-opening Daytona 500 and had been trying to recover from that and some other poor finishes through the first 11 races of the season. He has finished sixth or better in the last seven races, including Sunday. “It’s nice to know that things can still go our way,” Gordon said. “I hate it for (Johnson) and those guys for what happened. But we haven’t had much go our way this year.”

AKRON, Ohio — Keegan Bradley only wanted a chance to get into a playoff Sunday at Firestone. All it took was a clutch par, along with a stunning collapse by Jim Furyk, for Bradley to win the Bridgestone Invitational and wrap up a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Bradley closed with a 6-under 64, and the final stroke was the most important — a 15-foot putt to save par from a plugged lie in the bunker. Furyk, who led for 71 holes and looked solid throughout the final round, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey to throw away a chance at his first win

since the 2010 Tour Championship. He missed the green from the fairway. His chip with one foot in the sand barely cleared the bunker and stayed in the thick collar. He hit a weak chip to 5 feet, and his bogey putt never had a chance. Furyk dropped his putter when the ball left his blade. He went from what appeared to be a certain win to a 69 and a tie for second with Steve Stricker, who made four birdies on his last five holes for a 64. Bradley won for the first time since last year in PGA Championship, and now goes to Kiawah Island to defend his title with a lot more confidence.

The players to draft and the ones to bypass Have you ever been in a fantasy football draft where some guy spends a 14th round pick on a complete un-

known? “Ha. What a dork,” you scoff. (After first looking up the meaning of ‘scoff’) “He doesn’t know what he’s doing. I’m going to school this guy.” (Insert evil laugh here) Five weeks into the season, where you’re 2-3, your “dork” friend is 4-1 and that 14th round pick is a top 15 fantasy player do you realize: “Yeah. I’m a dummy.” You don’t have to be a dummy. Well, in fantasy football that is. I can’t help you in real life. You can avoid such bad picks by playing a little “Draft This Guy. Not That.” The idea is

that you can avoid “arteryclogging” bad draft choices for a more “healthy” alternative. When you come to a fork in the draft day road, just draft this guy. Not …. You get the idea.

the talent in the world, but he hasn’t shown he knows how to use it. Despite having WR1 status in Dallas when Miles Austin was injured in 2011, Bryant didn’t top 100 yards once, and let Laurent Robinson become Tony Romo’s big play guy. Add in an offseason arrest and Bryant is close to “do not draft” status on my list.

DRAFT ANTONIO BROWN, WR, STEELERS: Things are aligning quite nicely for Brown to have a big 2012. First of all, he’s entering his “magical,” breakout friendly third year. With Hines Ward retired and returning kicks for the Gotham Rouges, Brown is the unquestioned No. 2 receiver. And he has a good chance to be Pittsburgh’s No. 1. He was already Ben Roethlisberger’s favorite target near the end of 2011. NOT DEZ BRYANT, WR, COWBOYS: Yeah, he’s got all

DRAFT C.J. SPILLER, RB, BILLS: Spiller will start the season sharing time with Fred Jackson, but it’s his potential late in the season that is intriguing. Jackson is an excellent back, but he’s 31 and has never been a starter for a full season. Spiller stepped in after Jackson broke his leg in week 10 last year and put up huge numbers. A repeat of 2011 is highly likely. NOT SHONN GREENE, RB, JETS: You wouldn’t know it by watching ESPN, but there are actually other players on the


Jets than Tim Tebow. Greene is one of those guys, but he’s not a guy you want. He’s the primary RB on a running team, but his numbers are just north of mediocre. In 16 games last year, he had four quality fantasy performances. That plain stinks.

DRAFT MIKEL LESHOURE, RB, LIONS: OK, this is a bit of a stretch, but hear me out. Yes, Leshoure is suspended for the first two games of the season. And, yes, he missed all of 2011 with a torn Achilles. But he’s the best option the Lions have at RB. Last year’s starter Jahvid Best can’t stay healthy, and is already out indefinitely with a concussion. When Leshoure comes back, he should be a nice piece in a potent offense. NOT DEANGELO WILLIAMS, RB, PANTHERS: This is the same Williams who rushed for 1,500 yards and 20 TDs in 2008. But that was his

throw to, which makes him a sneaky good pick as your backup QB. NOT ANDY DALTON, QB, BENGALS: Again, here’s proof that being a good real world QB does not mean you’re a good fantasy QB. Dalton impressed a lot of people as a rookie and even lead the Bengals to the playoffs. That great if you’re a Cincinnati fan. But he’s not a big numbers guy, and that’s DRAFT CARSON PALMER, what fantasy owners look for. QB, RAIDERS: When Palmer He topped 200 yards passing in was with the Bengals he was just seven games and threw for usually the first QB not named Peyton Manning taken in fanta- more than two TDs in a game only once. There was a time sy drafts. And he’s only 32, when 21 total TDs would have which is younger than Drew been impressive, but the NFL is Brees and Tom Brady. So you a passing league now, and Dalknow he’s got talent, and he’s not past his prime. A midseason ton’s not a big gun. trade to Oakland brought some mixed fantasy results, but then Rich Sheposh is a page designer, again he had to learn a new editor and ne’er-do-well who writes system as he went along.

one shining moment. It’s not exactly his fault he hasn’t recaptured his ’08 mojo. He’s on a team that defines the term “running back by committee.” Fellow RBs Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert and even QB Cam Newton all get “theirs” in the Carolina offense. Williams may get “his,” but it’s not enough for “yours.”

Wilkes-Barre Triathlon. He clocked in Sunday at a time of 2 hours, 15 minutes and 59 seconds – over a minute faster than the competition. “This is my favorite race, and it’s the one that means the most to me,” Robbins said. “I’m from Shavertown, and it almost feels like my home course. It’s thrilling to win this race two years in a row.” Competing in the first flight, Robbins escaped the torrential downpour that stymied the remaining racers. Robbins stood in 16th place following the 1.5-kilometer Harveys Lake swim. He passed his competition before the first-quarter

point of the 40-km bike race. From there, he cycled and ran alone for the remaining 11-km stretch to defeat Weston’s Tim Felegie. “The running was a grind,” Robbins said. “Every mile seemed to get worse and worse. It was humid and sticky. I actually wish it started raining out so it could cool down out there. I just felt uncomfortable out there.” Robbins won by nearly an identical margin to his first Triathlon victory. He won the race by 1:08 – two seconds longer than last year’s mark. For Rummel, the Wilkes-Barre Triathlon gold serves as a homecoming and a revitalization of her

running career. The Edwardsville native returned home to compete in the Triathlon with no expectations of winning. It marks her first women’s overall victory in five races since returning from her 2006 retirement earlier this year. “Well, I never won overall this year,” she said. “I am just fresh out of retirement. I’ve been racing through this season. My last race was in 2006. I’ve been staying in shape though.” Rummel passed Kristen Karwacki of Macungie in the final mile to finish the race at 2 hours, 35 minutes and 18 seconds. “When I got off the bike, there was a girl right with me,” Rummel said. “She set a mean pace. She pulled in front of me, and I thought I lost it. I turned the corner on the last mile, and there she was so she must have fallen off the pace quite a bit. I was able to pass her.”

Race conditions proved difficult for Rummel. In her return home, she was caught off guard by the steep hills of the Back Mountain. Luckily, she said, Rummel also beat the rain that caught the second and third race flights. “Do you know what is typical? I forgot how hilly it was here,” Rummel said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve ran this kind of terrain. Kalamazoo is not that hilly.” Paige Kyle, of Trucksville, swam the ninth fastest overall swim to earn the second-fastest women’s overall time at 2:37.21. Two-time defending women’s champion Kelly Ciravolo of Shavertown did not compete in the Wilkes-Barre Triathlon. Wilkes-Barre’s Alec Barcklow won first place in 1:51.00 in the Aquabike competition. Dallas’ Meghan Pietraccini was the top female finisher in the swimmingbiking classification.

Off Like a Prom Dress tops among relay teams By MATTHEW SHUTT For The Times Leader

LEHMAN TWP. – If two is better than one, as the saying goes, then why not three? The local team of Nick Hetro, John Martino and Egan Mengeringhausen tried its best to answer thatquestionSundayattheWilkesBarre Triathlon. The trio left their stamp on the day when they won they won the relaydivisionofthetriathlonwitha time of 2:18:34, officially the thirdfastest time of the entire triathlon, and what with was unofficially the most provocative of all relay team sobriquets. “It feels really good to see it all come together and win,” said Nick Hetro, 23, of Fredericksville, who manned the bicycle leg for his team Off Like a Prom Dress. Hetro combined with John Martino, 28, of Dallas, and Egan Mengeringhausen, 19, of Shavertown, narrowly beat out the relay team Ambition, which turned in a time of 2:19:56. Pink Ribbons, winners of the coed division, finished third with a time of 2:20:35. Ambition’s

and Ribbons’ times were good for fourth and sixth fastest, respectively, over the course of the day. The Dress team attributed its time to each member taking on their specialty. “I organized our team, I know Egan from church and I’ve known John as a good runner for a while,” Hetro said. “We’re all strong in our own disciplines. I train for triathlons throughout the year, I know John enters in a couple of road races throughout the season and we both knew Egan is a strong swimmer.” Hetro turned in the second-fastest time in the relays in the bicycling leg with a 1:05:25, coming over a 24.8-mile course that winds through Harveys Lake, Noxen, Kunkle, Dallas Township, Dallas and Jackson Township. Hetro’s strong performance was aided by Martino’s time of 44:50 in the running leg over a winding 6.8mile course that treats competitors to various inclines and declines that are challenging enough on a dry day, unlike Sunday’s soggy conditions.

Mengeringhausen, who contributed to a district championship wonbyDallasHighSchoolinhisjunior year, posted the 26th-fastest time in the swimming leg. While the men of Dress had an easy time coming together, things wereabitmorecomplicatedforthe women’s division winners. The team of Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice won the women’s division with a time of 2:41:16, thanks in part to the fourth-fastest time recorded in the swimming leg by a late addition to the team. “I run year round and Jeanine (Dymond) is, in my opinion, one of the best around here on the bike, but,wehadtodosomeworktofind a swimmer this year,” said Emily Bilbow,ofFortyFort.“Ididswimin high school, though, so I asked a formercoachtodosomerecruiting for me.” Fortunately for Sugar and Spice, that recruiting paired them with Julie Ann Mahle, a senior at Holy Redeemer who last year was the Wyoming Valley Conference’s coaches choice for the Class 2A girls swimming MVP. Mahle also

finished 14th in the 100 backstroke at the state meet in Lewisburg and swam the second leg for a 200 free relay team that finished sixth in the same meet. Mahle’s swimming leg and Bilbow’s 12th-fastest time in the running leg helped to combine for a first-place finish, which now makes itaperfectfourwinsinfourtriesfor Sugar and Spice. And while at least two-thirds of the team will definitely be back next year to go for a fifth win,theirreasonsareformorethan just to compete. “About two years ago I broke my leg and I couldn’t do any running. When I had to put that aside it was really rough for me,” Bilbow said. “This year, to see the team work together and win, sure, it’s nice, but it’s just come to mean so much to metocomehereyearafteryearand get to do something I love.” Dymondhappilyechoedthesentiment. “The more I do this, the more I realize I need to be a part of it,” said Dymond, of Harding. “All the people here are just great to each other.”

DALLAS – One stroke from defeat, Chuck Brand made a shot that’s certain to be talked about for the ages. And in the process, he wound up sinking any hopes for the completion of an endlessly long day, and kept the Potentate Tournament going for days. That’s just fine with Brand and his partner Joe Weiscarger, after Brand’s miraculous 40-foot chip for birdie on the 18th and final hole of regulation sent the rain-soaked championship flight finals into a playoff Sunday and on to Wednesday at Irem Country Club. “There was no option,” Brand said of his head-spinner, which sent gasps around the gallery. “It was either give it a shot, knock it in or … “That was the only option.” Ultimately, it gave tournament officials no choice but to wait a few more days to award a winner. The duo of Brand and Weiscarger remained tied with the team of Jim Breck and John Mulhern after two playoff holes Sunday before darkness forced a continuation of their match. It’ll be picked up with the third playoff hole between the teams – which number they’ll tee off on will be determined by tournament officials – at 7 p.m. Wednesday because that’s the soonest the four players can all free up their regular work schedules at the same time. “I was thrilled, definitely excited,” Brand said of his beauty of a chip. “But that was just half the battle. They had two good chances at it.” Indeed. Of the four approach shots of the 18th hole, Brand’s was the only one that didn’t reach the green. Instead, his landed on an upward hill just before the lip of the green, making Brand’s the most difficult to sink. It didn’t matter to him. Brand, who said he’s not

known for making such marvelous shots, lifted a strong lob halfway down the green that rolled true to the pin – much to the marvel of the 20 or so onlookers who walked away talking about it. “Don’t let him kid you, my partner has an incredible short game,” Weiscarger said. It thwarted almost certain defeat and prevented the crowning of Breck and Mulhern as tournament champions – at least on Sunday. After playing through rainsoaked semifinal matches Sunday morning, both teams were tied after the first 10 holes of the finals when fierce thunderstorms delayed the match for two hours. “The course played even longer after that,” Brand said. “There’s no roll,” Weiscarger said of the soggy grounds. “You hit a shot and the fairway’s now are soft. Wherever you hit it, it stayed.” Over the next couple holes, Breck and Mulhern took a onehole lead and it stayed that way – until the final hole. After Brand chipped in from the right, both Breck and Mulhern just missed putts within 15 feet of the cup that would have secured their victory. Then it was on to a couple extra rounds. The teams played the first extra hole by revisiting No. 18, then moved to the 17th where daylight faded fast but both had chances to win. Both Breck and Weiscarger narrowly missed putts that would have given their teams match-winning birdies, and Mulhern made a phenomenal up-and-down for par. But that was it for the day, as darkness forced the suspension of play. “It was too dark to play one more hole,” Weiscarger said. It got that way when his teammate didn’t want to make a difficult shot off the 18th green be his last. “I had a good lie,” Brand said, “and it hugged the lip.”


Chuck Brand watches his drive at the 10th tee in the semifinals of the Potentate Golf Tournament at the Irem Temple Country Club in Dallas Township on Sunday morning.

Cub Scout Pack 281, sponsored by the Dallas United Methodist Church, recently held two events in its 2012 Summer Fun Program. The first event was a Bicycle Rally held on June 16 at Kirby Park which featured a helmet check, bike safety check, bicycle registration and a three-mile ride on the levee trail. The second event was an outdoor screening of the motion picture ‘The Adventures of Tin Tin’ held on July 21 on the lawn at Trinity Presbyterian Church, Dallas. Prior to the film, Boy Scouts from Troop 281 entertained the crowd with camp songs and skits and Cub Scouts and their families enjoyed popcorn, hot dogs and soda provided by the Trinity Presbyterian Men’s Group. The final event of the summer program will be a Cub Scout Carnival to be held 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Aug. 18 outside the Dallas United Methodist Church. The event will feature games, food and a dunk tank. Families with boys in first through fifth grades interested in finding out more about Cub Scouting are welcome to attend. New scouts may sign up at the carnival or at school sign-up night from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 12 at the Dallas Elementary School cafeteria.

Grown-up son enjoying free ride has little reason to get up and go Dear Abby: My girlfriend “Vivian’s” son “Kirk” is 22 and very immature. I love Vivian with all my heart, and I get upset when Kirk verbally abuses her. I try not to say anything because I feel it’s not my place because he’s not MY son. Kirk hasn’t worked in two years. He walks into his mother’s house and takes whatever he wants — food, toothpaste, rolls of toilet paper, etc. He won’t help her around the house, mow the lawn or wash a dirty dish he has used. And he lives rent-free in one of the duplexes his mother bought. Vivian is hard-working and self-supporting. She’s also tired of her son’s lack of motivation and how he takes

DEAR ABBY ADVICE her for granted. I know a mother doesn’t want to see her child go hungry, but where do you draw the line? — Fed Up in Texas Dear Fed Up: Vivian should draw the line at the front door. By tolerating her son’s disrespectful behavior she is doing him no favors. Unless he actively looks for a job, stops helping himself to her property and does something to repay her generosity, she should stop “helping” him. What she’s doing is crippling her son, who may be in need of counseling.


Dear Abby: Please inform your readers not to invite people to showers if they’re not invited to the wedding. I was invited to a shower and found out I wasn’t invited to the wedding. I was upset, but imagine how mortified I felt when I was told that if some of the invited guests sent back a refusal, THEN I would be invited to the wedding. I would have preferred to have been told, “I’d love to have you, but we just can’t afford to invite all of the lovely people we would like.” I know this isn’t the first time you’ve mentioned something like this in your column, but it amazes me how insensitive people can be. — Second String, Bradford, Mass. Dear Second String: Being told we are at the top of the “B” list makes


us feel really wanted, doesn’t it? If people would take just a moment to consider how their words and deeds affect others, what a kinder, gentler world this would be. For the record: People who will not be invited to the wedding should not be asked to attend a bridal shower. Dear Abby: My divorced daughter stretched her food budget to “surprise” me with my favorite double cheese pizza with black olive topping. After everyone had eaten, I eyed the leftovers and decided to help out by gorging on the extra slices. My subsequent gallstone attack did not hurt as much as my oldest granddaughter’s query: “Grandpa, why did you force yourself to finish the pizza? Mommy promised us it would be our

snack tomorrow.” Gluttonous guests should not assume that “leftovers” are fair game. — S.G. in Laguna Woods Dear S.G.: How true. Wisdom — and good manners — dictate that nothing should be taken from the host’s kitchen without permission. I have received more than one letter over the years describing a refrigerator raid in which the guest wound up with a sandwich loaded with what turned out to be pet food. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have people around you who love you, but they will appreciate you more if you expand your team a bit. As an added bonus, your loved ones will sense their competition and treat you better. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is no use in wanting to get a zig out of a thing that clearly likes to zag. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and effort by paying attention to the nature of things. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While there are times when being a perfectionist means the difference between getting what you want and not getting it, in most instances, perfectionism isn’t realistic, necessary or useful. CANCER (June 22-July 22). This is the point at which it’s best to stop planning, because you won’t realize what you don’t know or don’t have until you take action. Trust that being in action will show you what you need. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve been known to perform for your friends and family as a kind of gift. There are special events coming up that you could make even better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Be careful not to fritter your time away on things that ultimately will make no difference. Much falls into that category today, which makes this a fine time to ask yourself: What really would make a difference to me? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Waiting patiently pays off, but can cause great discomfort for someone as busy as you. Occupy yourself in some way.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Fortuitous meetings and chance encounters are in store. As you interact with supportive people who want to see you succeed, you’ll start thinking of yourself as the person you want to become. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your favorite conversations include some talk about nothing and everything and a dash of intriguing news, all sprinkled with laughter and garnished with the spirit of kidding around. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Drawing is a form of meditation that could help you solve a problem today. Possessing a talent for drawing is irrelevant. If you can drag a pencil across a page, you can express yourself through drawing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will live the concept of the Latin phrase “amor fati” — or “love of fate.” You not only accept what is; you find what’s beautiful and lovable about it, and you invest your highest and best attention in it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Putting first things first seems like it should be a no-brainer, but you’ll be surprised at the odd, meaningless details being mistaken for truly important matters. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 6). Your year will be defined not only by what you do, but also by whom you are with. Your social fun will be especially fulfilling this month. Next month brings an excellent creative project your way. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 7, 20, 18 and 31.
