2012 LONDON OLYMPICS

OLYMPICS END WITH PAGEANT With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun. The closing ceremony offered a sensory blast including rock ’n’ roll rickshaws and a marching band in red tunics and bearskin hats. The Spice Girls staged a show-stopping reunion, and Monty Python’s Eric Idle sauntered through “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” — accompanied by Roman centurions, Scottish bagpipers and a human cannonball.

enant Christian Fellowship Church’s “Kingdom Explosion” service ran on. The service marked the end of a weekend that the New Covenant Christian Church used to get the message out about the need to combat youth violence, a sentiment many have echoed over the past months more vehemently, due in large part to the fatal shooting of 14-year-old

Tyler Winstead back in April. “It is a very scary thing,” said Tahnee Saxon, a Wilkes-Barre resident. “You just never know what could happen, and I can’t help but think, ‘What if that was my little girl?’ But things like this, people taking this initiative, it definitely helps. I hope many events like this continue.” “I’ve seen things,” said an older man who lives in South

Wilkes-Barre, but wishes to remain anonymous. “It’s scary what’s going on, and what’s even scarier is how young some of these people getting involved are.” The church ran an all-day basketball tournament at the park Saturday and used Sunday to further drive home the point See CHANGE, Page 8A

Bride accused of killing groom before wedding The Associated Press

HOKENDAUQUA — A Pennsylvania woman is in jail accused of killing her fiance hours before they were to get married. Na Cola Darcel Franklin is charged with criminal homicide in the stabbing death of 36-yearold Billy Rafeal Brewster in their Whitehall Township apartment. Police said they found Brewster bleeding shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital. The Morning Call newspaper in Allentown reported that at her video arraignment Saturday, the 31-year-old Franklin wept and choked out, “I did not kill him on purpose.” Neighbor Steve Engel said the pastor who was supposed to perform the ceremony came to the apartment building after being unable to reach the couple.

than 400 local agencies as well as more than 16,000 additional regional, state and national resources. Friedman was a member of the board of trustees at the Family Service Association of Wyoming Valley and was one of the volunteers integral in founding Help Line in 1972 in the aftermath of the Agnes Flood that devastated the valley. “Everyone knew that she was the prime example of a volun-

teer,” Family Service Association Director of Resource Development and Volunteer Services Ruth Kemmerer said. “She did it all.” Friedman served as the first president of Misericordia’s art galley in 1977 and helped to expand its membership by bringing in artists and working to improve its facilities. Funding from Pauly and her husband, Sidney Friedman, helped renovate and expand what would later be named the Pauly House, a residence for single mothers enrolled at the university as well as their children. “Pauly was very family orient-

ed, which is why we encourage people to participate in the event with their families,” Kemmerer said. But it was her volunteer efforts in founding Help Line that brought more than 160 participants to the startling line Sunday. Executive Director Mike Zimmerman said the walk/run is meant to spread awareness for the program and its resources to the community. “Pauly had so much support for the community,” he said. “So we have this event to show support for her and the services she was involved in.” Zimmerman said one area in

A wonderful weekend Peach Music Festival featured about 29 hours of music from 25 bands on two stages. R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

SCRANTON -- From Friday through Sunday, the first-of-itskind Peach Music Festival, presented by the Allman Brothers Band, gave us roughly 29 hours of music from 25 bands on two stages at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain and neighboring Sno Cove water park. And to paraphrase the lyrics from a well-known song by a band who had much in common with those in Scranton the past three days: What a long, strange, wonderful weekend it was. A band with local roots, Cabinet, kicked off the festival with a one-hour-and-15-minute performance on Friday afternoon. The old-timey bluegrass and acoustic six-piece put its best foot forward with “Susquehanna Breakdown” and other original tunes such as “Pennsylvania” and “Caroline.” After electrifying performances by Southern rock band Blackberry Smoke on the main stage (dubbed the “Peach Stage” for the weekend) and 61 North and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk on the second stage (the “Mushroom Stage”), guitarist Warren Haynes, playing the festival as part of the Allman Brothers Band and doing solo turns with the Warren Haynes Band on Friday and the solo acoustic “Wake Up With Warren” segment on Sunday, first took the stage. Highlights of the Warren Haynes Band set included his own “Sick of My Shadow” and “Man In Motion” (on which he was joined by keyboardist Ivan Neville) and tasty covers of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and Steely Dan’s “Pretzel Logic.” Although he introduced his group as “happy to be opening for the Allman Brothers,” one of Friday’s co-headliners, the Zac Brown Band, proved a hard act to follow. From opener “Keep Me In Mind” to “Chicken Fried,” the last tune of a four-song encore, guitarist Brown and his cohorts were on fire. The group’s two hours on stage were one highlight after another, whether playing its own hits such as “Toes,” “Colder Weather,” or “As She’s Walking Away,” or a generous amount of cover tunes including spectacular versions of The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” (both sung by multi-instrumentalist Clay Cook) and “The Devil Went Down To Georgia,” which showcased fiddler Jimmy De Martini. Then it was time for the Allman Brothers Band, the festival’s hosts, who wasted no time before kicking in a great version of “Statesboro Blues.” 1994’s “No One To Run With” was an early standout, as was “Midnight Rider.” Haynes led the band on a

wicked “The Sky Is Crying” and the group hit its stride on a 12minute epic “Dreams” and the instrumental “Jessica,” which ended the main set. The twosong encore was capped by a divine version of “Southbound,” as the first evening came to a close at 2:40 a.m. The ABB’s second set began about 17 hours later, this time with a host of instrumentals before Haynes brought out some friends to play horns, piano and drums on a scorching “Same Thing.” Haynes’ version of “Blue Sky” (a song written and sung by estranged ABB member Dickey Betts) was a particular standout of Saturday’s second performance, as was his version of Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic.”

Keyboardist and vocalist extraordinaire Gregg Allman was not to be outdone, as he gave the crowd a memorable “Revival” and knockout versions of “Statesboro Blues” and “Dreams” (the only repeats from the prior evening). Saturday’s encore was a majestic, 13-minute version of “Whipping Post,” which was a fitting way for the band to end its festival and its 2012 concerts (there are no more ABB concerts scheduled for the remainder of the year). Earlier in the day Saturday, another band with local roots, MiZ headed by singer-songwriter Michael Mizwinski, opened the afternoon’s activities on the main stage with a great 45-minute performance that left the crowd

chanting for “one more song.” Highlights included originals “Was A Time,” which opened the set, and a tune Mizwinski referred to as a “Yatesville bluegrass number,” plus great covers of Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes” and Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ in the Years,” all of which showcased Mizwinski’s formidable skills on the guitar. Sunday’s abbreviated schedule was the perfect capper to the weekend. Haynes helped the crowd “ease into the day,” as he put it, with a solo acoustic performance. About as spiritual as he got in the early going was a glorious version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” but he later brought out the Blind Boys of Alabama for joyous versions of the traditional “Down by the Riverside” and the Haynes original “Soulshine.” Next up was Robert Randolph & The Family Band, who pumped the crowd up with an hour-long, five-song performance capped by a remarkable “Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That,” as each band member left the stage after being introduced until Randolph was alone with his pedal steel guitar. The Blind Boys of Alabama, the legendary gospel group with roots that stretch back more than 60 years, capped the festival with an hour’s worth of spirituals and other God-centric tunes such as “People Get Ready” and “Spirit in the Sky.” The Blind Boys brought Randolph back to the stage for the title track of the group’s first traditional country album “Take The High Road” and ended with a poignant “Amazing Grace” and an extended jubilant number that brought the crowd to its feet as the music and the weekend came to a close. Over the past few weeks, everyone from the festival’s promoters to band members had been saying the possibility of future festivals on Montage Mountain would depend a lot on what happened at the first one. After seeing, hearing and witnessing everything the Peach Music Festival had to offer, let’s hope it was not one-of-a-kind.

The All Stars and The Starfires played at venues such as Sans Souci, Hanson’s and Sandy Beach, which all featured open-air walls with huge dance floors like Irem Temple pavilion. Nardone said that in recent years many school classes get a group together for mini-reunions to come out to the dances to hear the same music with the same bands they danced to during their high school and college days. “It’s something that is only offered once a year and it becomes a night of ‘going back’ if only for a few hours, to when there were not too many responsibilities other than figuring out how to See BANDS, Page 8A

County councilman takes issue with proposed bylaws JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County Councilman Rick Morelli said he has numerous concerns about proposed bylaws tentatively up R E P O R T E R S N O T E B O O K for adoption on Tuesday’s council meeting a council majority may not be introduced for reconsideration unless ceragenda. “They take away the rights of elected tain conditions are met. Council’s new strategic initiatives officials and stifle votes,” Morelli said. For example, he doesn’t believe committee spent more than two hours council members should be limited to last week refining the proposed bylaws, three minutes of comment at the end of which have been posted with other Aug. 14 meeting attachments on the a meeting. “Meetings should be for discussion,” council section of the county website, www.luzernecounty.org. he said. Council Vice President Linda Morelli also takes issue with a proposed rule saying a motion defeated by McClosky Houck, a member of the

strategic committee, said the bylaws were based heavily on rules and regulations already in place in other counties. The proposal was posted on the county website because the strategic committee welcomes feedback from the public and all council members, she said. • Millions of dollars in contracts with more than 100 outside companies and nonprofits that perform services for county human service branches also are on Tuesday’s agenda for council’s approval. Council approval is required, in part, because the contracts are in effect for the first half of 2013, and council members have not yet adopted a budget. A contract summary is on the website.

• Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton’s mid-year financial report and deficit avoidance plan is expected to be the highlight of Tuesday’s meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the county’s Emergency Management Agency building, Water Street, Wilkes-Barre. • County council members will gather at 6 p.m. before Tuesday’s meeting in the EMA building to publicly interview six applicants for four vacant seats on the Forty Fort Airport Advisory Board.

It’s not an ailing system, but a fragmented one in need of a specialist to diagnose the problem and prescribe a treatment. “There’s nothing that’s a coordinated effort through all divisions,” Regula said. Allied will spend approximate-

ly $10 million in the long term and have the Cerner Millennium system in place within two years. It is the single largest technology investment in Allied’s history. The Kansas City, Mo., company was chosen because it had the product offerings to handle Allied’s diversity from post-acute care rehabilitation hospitals to skilled nursing and assisted living centers to home health care. Each division has its own reporting and regulatory requirements and business processes, and the project will ensure there is continuity among them. Tony DeSantis, assistant director of systems development, has been assigned the task of coordinating Cerner activities and has worked with the company previously at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. “We purchased a system that is flexible enough to be leveraged across all our different lines of business,” DeSantis said. Because of the complexity and scope of the project, Cerner will use Allied as a model for prospective clients and bring them to Northeastern Pennsylvania. DeSantis said it’s rare for even a

larger hospital to have a comprehensive record system. “But we’re fortunate enough to be able to track our patients flow through one system in all divisions,” he said. The project has many components including software, hardware and training of almost everyone in the Allied organization. Allied is not alone in automating electronic health records, Regula said. Acute care hospitals are also involved in projects. But they are doing so with federal funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Allied is not eligible for those funds, however, but must comply with federal mandates for electronic health records. Still the effort will be worth it, Regula said. The project will initially focus n the Allied’s home health care division. “The end result for patients, our caregivers and the community at large, the referring doctors in the community, will be such that our patients will have a single experience coming into Allied,” Regula said.

HIGH POINT, N.C. — In Paul Ryan’s high-energy debut as Republican vice presidential candidate, Mitt Romney’s campaign made one thing clear: Romney’s ideas rule, not his running mate’s. Romney put gentle but unmistakable distance between his agenda and Ryan’s hot-potato budget proposals on Sunday as the new team soaked up excitement from partisans in North Carolina and Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin. But Democrats weren’t about to let them off that hook. President Barack Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod deemed Ryan’s budget “the Ryan-Rom-

most strident voices in the Republican Party, but it’s one that should trouble everybody else — the middle class, seniors, students,” Axelrod said Sunday on CNN. Romney walked a careful line as he campaigned with Ryan by his side in North Carolina. Romney singled out Ryan’s work “to make sure we can save Medicare.” But the presidential candidate never said whether he embraced that plan himself. During the Republican primary, Romney had called Ryan’s budget a “bold and exciting effort” that was “very much needed.” Ryan proposed to reshape the longstanding entitlement by setting up a voucher-like system to let future retirees shop for private health coverage or choose the traditional program — a plan that independent budget analysts

say would probably mean smaller increases in benefits than current law would provide. Romney aides, echoing talking points they circulated to party leaders and operatives, praised Ryan’s budget work, but sought to draw a distinction between his ideas and Romney’s. They were clearly mindful that some of

Ryan’s proposals don’t sit well with key constituencies, among them seniors in critical states like Florida and Ohio. “Gov. Romney is at the top of the ticket,” Romney spokesman Kevin Madden told reporters Sunday. “And Gov. Romney’s vision for the country is something that Congressman Ryan supports,”

Times Square had a history of marijuana arrests and had once been taken to a hospital for observation after knocking down garbage cans, authorities said Sunday. The man was identified as Darrius Kennedy of Hempstead, N.Y., and a native of South Carolina. Police said the encounter began Saturday when an officer approached Kennedy, who was smoking marijuana near the military recruiting station in Times Square, around West 44th Street and Seventh Avenue. Kennedy became agitated, pulled out an 11-inch knife and began to put a bandanna on his head, police said. He refused repeated orders to drop the weapon and began backing down the avenue.

Graham has lung infection A spokesman for Billy Graham says the 93-year-old evangelist has been admitted to a North Carolina hospital for an infection in his lungs. A joint statement Sunday from Graham’s spokesman and Mission Hospital says Graham was admitted overnight for evaluation and treatment of an infection thought to be bronchitis. The hospital is in Asheville, near his home in Montreat. Pulmonologist David Pucci says Graham is resting comfortably and his condition is stable. He is receiving antibiotics. Graham spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist was able to watch a television feed of his grandson, Will Graham, preaching on Sunday morning. KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

Officials met with Taliban Afghan government representatives have met with a top-ranking Taliban member in his prison cell in Pakistan, an official said Sunday, suggesting a small step toward reopening stalled peace talks with the insurgent group. The confirmation came at the end of a bloody weekend that showed how unstable the country is, though NATO is aiming to hand over security responsibility to local forces at the end of 2014 after more than a decade of warfare against insurgents. Afghanistan’s international allies hope that bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table will ease the pressure on the Afghan government as international forces draw down. An official with the Afghan High Peace Council, which is tasked with starting talks, said the Pakistani government allowed Afghan government envoys access to Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, a top-ranking Taliban official who was captured in Pakistan in 2010.

Search for Iran quake survivors ends

Death toll in twin quakes in northwestern Iran rises to more than 250 with 16,000 injured. By ALI AKBAR DAREINI Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran — Residents of the zone in northwestern Iran hit by powerful twin earthquakes described moments of terror and panic with birds crowing loudly in warning seconds before the ground shook. As the death toll rose Sunday to more than 250 with entire villages leveled, rescuers called off searches for survivors and turned their attention to caring for the 16,000 people left homeless. At least 20 villages were destroyed in the quakes on Saturday that were followed by about 36 aftershocks, state television reported. Ahmad Reza Shajiei, a senior government official in charge of rescue operations, said more than 5,000 tents have been set up to shelter the thousands of displaced who spent the night out-

doors. “The moment the earthquake hit, it was like a snake biting from underground. It was the worst experience of my life,” said resident Morteza Javid, 47, from Ahar. “The walls were shaking and moving from side to side. It took about a minute before I could run out of the house,” he said. “Seconds before the earthquake, crows were making a lot of noise, but I didn’t understand why. It was only after the quake that I learned the crows were warning us.” Javid said he drove more than a dozen injured people to hospitals during the night. State television said at least 250 died. The semiofficial Mehr news agency quoted a local official who put the toll at 277. State TV said 44,000 food packages and thousands of blankets have been distributed in the stricken area. In Washington, the White House press secretary sent a message of sympathy for the victims. “Our thoughts are with the families of those who were lost, and we wish the

wounded a speedy recovery,” it said. “We stand ready to offer assistance in this difficult time.” The U.S. and Iran are locked in a bitter fight over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program, which the West suspect is aimed at producing weapons. Iran denies the allegation. The U.N. also issued a message of sympathy and offered aid. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that Saturday’s first quake was magnitude 6.4 and struck 35 miles northeast of the city of Tabriz at a depth of 6.2 miles. State TV quoted local Crisis Committee chief Khalil Saei as saying the epicenter was a region between the towns of Ahar and Haris, about 350 miles northwest of the capital Tehran. The second quake was a magnitude 6.3 and struck 11 minutes later, the USGS reported. Its epicenter was 30 miles northeast of Tabriz at a depth of 6.1 miles. The quakes hit the towns of Ahar, Haris and Varzaqan in East Azerbaijan province, state television reported.

Syrian opposition leader calls for a no-fly zone This citizen journalism image provided by Shaam News Network SNN, taken on Saturday, purports to show Syrians standing in the rubble of a destroyed building from Syrian forces shelling in Khaldiyeh neighborhood, Homs province, central Syria.

By BASSEM MROUE Associated Press

BEIRUT — The head of Syria’s main opposition group in exile called Sunday for international powers to impose a nofly zone in border areas to protect civilians who are coming under increasingly intense attacks by regime warplanes and helicopters. The president of the Syrian National Council, Abdelbaset Sieda, told The Associated Press that such a move by the international community would show President Bashar Assad’s regime that his opponents around the world are serious. The Syrian opposition has been calling for a no-fly zone over Syria for months. But Sieda renewed the plea a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Washington and Turkey were discussing a range of steps including a no-fly zone over some parts of Syria as the regime increasingly uses its air force to attack rebels. “There must be special protection,” Sieda said by telephone. “The numbers of martyrs are increasing and destruc-

tion too. If the country keeps going this way, then we are heading to a catastrophe.” Asked who will impose the no-fly zone, Sieda said: “We leave it to the international community.” Russia and China have vetoed attempts to pass tough U.N. Security Council resolutions aimed at Assad’s regime. Last week, the U.N. and Arab

League envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, announced his resignation, following a frustrating six-month effort that failed to achieve even a temporary cease-fire. Sieda said the no-fly zone should be along borders with Jordan and Turkey, adding that the opposition had called for such a move during last month’s Friends of Syria meeting in Paris attended by world powers.

CHICAGO — Laws strictly curbing school sales of junk food and sweetened drinks may play a role in slowing childhood obesity, according to a study that seems to offer the first evidence such efforts could pay off. The results come from the first large national look at the effectiveness of the state laws over time. They are not a slamdunk, and even “You can’t obesity experts get much who praised the study acknowl- worse than edge the mea- it already sures are a political hot potato, is.” smacking of a Dr. David “nanny state” Ludwig and opposed by Obesity industry and specialist cash-strapped schools relying on food processors’ money. But if the laws have even a tiny effect, “what are the downsides of improving the food environment for children today?” asked Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital. “You can’t get much worse than it already is.” Children in the study gained less weight from fifth through eighth grades if they lived in states with strong, consistent laws versus no laws governing snacks available in schools. For example, kids who were 5 feet tall and 100 pounds gained on average 2.2 fewer pounds if they lived in states with strong laws in the three years studied. Also, children who were overweight or obese in fifth grade were more likely to reach a healthy weight by eighth grade if they lived in states with the strongest laws. The effects weren’t huge, and the study isn’t proof that the laws influenced kids’ weight. But the results raised optimism among obesity researchers and public health experts who generally applaud strong laws to get junk food out of schools. “This is the first real evidence that the laws are likely to have an impact,” said Dr. Virginia Stallings, director of the nutrition center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Stallings chaired an Institute of Medicine panel that urged standards for making snack foods and drinks sold in schools more healthful but was not involved in the new research. The authors of the study, released online today in the journal Pediatrics, analyzed data on 6,300 students in 40 states.

WORLD OPINION

Controlling prostitution lies with punishing clients

P

ROSTITUTION, always among the most intractable of problems, has become in today’s global economy one of the fastest-growing businesses in the world; it’s estimated worth is $32 billion a year. Hundreds of thousands of people a year around the globe are trafficked into the sex trade. No one knows how many Canadian children and adults are coerced into prostitution, this supposed “victimless crime.” But Canada, to our shame, has become a major destination for sex tourism, according to a report last year by the U.S. State Department. “In Montreal you can order a girl like a pizza,” Sgt. Dominic Monchamp said recently, to signify how the supply of sex workers in this city has multiplied in recent years. “You can choose her hair color, the color of her eyes, her measurements, her weight, and she will be delivered within half an hour.” As for a crackdown on cli-

ents, a just-published study by researchers at the New York University School of Law looked at the experience in Sweden. In 1999, Sweden became one of the world’s first jurisdictions to criminalize clients exclusively, enacting a ban on the purchase of sexual services. Alas, criminalization of socalled johns didn’t work as well in practice as it sounded in theory. The New York researchers think Sweden’s sex market might have just shifted across its borders. It didn’t reduce prostitution so much as it increased sex tourism. As the researchers looked at various government attempts to control prostitution, they postulated that a key component to success might be in the severity of punishment meted out to the buyers. To work, sanctions might have to hit the client very hard, both in terms of criminal sanctions and loss of social reputation. The Gazette, Montreal

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I am completely confident that our transformation is on track.” Ron Johnson The CEO of J.C. Penney Co. recently sought to reassure investors that, despite declining sales, the department store chain’s everyday-low-pricing strategy will catch on with shoppers. Penney plans to tweak its advertising during the upcoming back-to-school season.

Where is refugee aid?

R

EFUGEES continue to pour out of Syria into neighboring countries as the Assad regime writhes and slashes out in its death throes. There are some 124,000 people who have fled over Syria’s borders. Another million have been driven from their homes by the fighting and are hunkered down, wherever they can find shelter inside the country. The United Nations made clear two months ago that caring for all these luckless people with shelter, food and medicines would cost it at least $400 million. It called on the world to give generously. As of late July, only 20 percent of the needed funding, about $80 million, had been forthcom-

ing. Thus the extraordinary fundraising campaign begun by King Abdullah which, through a ground-breaking telethon, raised $117 million in aid for the Syrians. Saudis and expatriates all gave generously during the telethon. It must be wondered, however, why so many other countries have chosen to keep their pocketbooks shut tight. Just as there is no excuse for what Assad is doing to his people, so there is no pardoning any country that continues to stand by and watch, waiting for someone else to pick up the tab for one of the most urgent humanitarian challenges so far this century.

A push for school sports

A

USTRALIA’S POOR performance in the pool at the London Olympics has raised concerns that a lack of compulsory sport in schools might be partly to blame. Sport might become compulsory under a planned national curriculum, if all the states agree. But does that mean “competitive” sport? Not as some schools understand it. Competitive sport is simply ignored.

Editorial Board

John Coates, Australia’s Olympic chief, argues sport should have been made compulsory on a national curriculum after the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Britain did so, and the benefits have been obvious. He is right to aspire to winning and to create a youth legacy that will see Australians do better. Herald Sun Melbourne, Australia

I

n 1965 I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 80 from Dunmore. Back then, we suspected that some Scouts and leaders were gay, but it was a non-issue because they didn’t pound you on the back and shout: “Hey, I’m gay! You got a problem with that?” Nowadays, militant activists use their sexual orientation as a license to hate, vilify and slander any who dare disagree with their views. The Scout Oath reads: “On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.” Some in the gay community take great offense at the words “morally straight.” They view them as a challenge to their lifestyle, when it simply means to be clean in speech and actions and be true to one’s religious values. If openly gay males are allowed to become Scouts, these two words will be stricken from the oath. Bet the farm on it. I will proudly keep my Eagle Scout medal and feel sorry for those naïve kids who can’t see the big picture. Gay activists don’t want to join the Boy Scouts. They want to destroy it. Fran McMullen Wilkes-Barre

Reader fully on the side of Mitt’s supply-side plan

I

n John Watson’s commentary “American economy is still the ‘Gold Medalist,’ ” he claims our federal government can create jobs by spending huge amounts of money to rebuild our country’s infrastructure. However, this plan has the following drawbacks: 1. It can take several years for infrastructure projects to start construction due to the extensive amount of time they normally require for planning, engineering, land dealings, public meetings, etc. 2. It will create only a limited number of jobs. 3. The jobs will disappear once the projects are finished, which can be after only a few months. 4. It will increase our national debt. A more beneficial option is Gov. Mitt Romney’s supply-side plan, which will open the door for businesses to expand hiring by eliminating President Obama’s anti-business policies and regulations that have created a tremendous amount of fear and uncertainty about the economy. This plan has the following advantages when compared to an infrastructure rebuilding

program: 1. It can induce businesses to expand hiring this year. 2. It will create many more jobs, because it involves hiring by millions of businesses. 3. The jobs can last for decades. 4. It will not increase our national debt. However, these benefits can be reaped only if Romney wins this November’s presidential election. Bill Ostrowski Exeter

Writer calls for inquiry of Obama birth certificate

I

have written Congressman Tom Marino and U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey to call for a complete investigation as to why the White House issued a fake birth certificate and why the president still insists it’s real. God bless Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona for looking after the constitutional rights of the citizens in his county. The question is, who is looking out for the rest of the country? Had “Barry Soetoro” done something to make America stronger in any definable category this might be a moot point. But seeing the suicidal direction Obama is leading us, and the fraudulent birth certificate he issued, demands a thorough and complete investigation. The implications of Congress not investigating this matter are scarier than even a rogue impostor president. Joseph DuPont Towanda

It’s only fair to require Romney tax records

T

here have been a lot of questions about Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital experience: when he left and when he didn’t. A lot of folks don’t think that is necessary information and should be off limits. Fair enough. But Romney’s people want to talk about President Obama’s experience or lack thereof. Again, fair enough. Except that if it’s OK to talk about Obama’s experience, why isn’t it fair to talk about Romney’s?

DOONESBURY

So if it’s fair to talk about Romney’s experience with Bain, it seems to me we need to see those years’ tax returns, at least, which would include 1999, 2000 and 2001. If he was paid to be CEO, chairman of the board and/or any other position, then he can’t reasonably claim no involvement in job outsourcing and job killing. If he wasn’t, maybe he has a point. The thing is, nobody’s complaining about looking at Obama’s service. He even had to produce proof of citizenship. Ed Cole Clarks Summit

There’s nothing merry about lack of job creation

I

remember two things from the basic course on economics. One was “prime the pump,” which essentially says that you must spend money to make money. The other was “the law of diminishing returns,” which allows that, for example, after a certain point lowering the price of an item by mass production will not make for a profit. (No matter how efficient the process.) Prime the pump would apply well for putting people back to work who would then be able to pay taxes. It would excite imaginations to consider something such as high-speed rail. President Abraham Lincoln built a transcontinental railroad, and President Dwight Eisenhower a national interstate highway system. And they were Republicans! As to the second concept, the law of diminishing returns, a primary perception is that “trickle-down economics” doesn’t trickle down. President Ronald Reagan gave up on it before the end of his first term. (His budget director, David Stockman, pointed out to him that it had quickly run out of gas.) President George H.W. Bush had called it “voodoo economics” and wouldn’t go there in his own presidency. But his son would. For his own reasons, he chose not his father as a model, but Reagan. “W” resurrected the tired old trickle down, along with a few other boneheaded ideas, and this eventually led to a near collapse of the economy. What are the dynamics that occasion “job creators” not creating jobs – despite getting tax cuts? It might be as simple as they now have as much as they could possibly want. So they tear down their storehouses and barns and build new ones for all their produce. With that they say to themselves, “We will relax, eat, drink and be merry.” This story ends grimly for the erstwhile job creator(s). And no one is the better for it. Richard J. Yost South Abington Township

The Rev. Diane Lunden, who helmed much of the beginning of the service along with fellow worship singers, spoke of a time when she found herself in a park such as Coal Street’s, though it was when she was addicted to drugs. “One day I woke up and God spoke to me,” she said of a morn-

ing she found herself on a park bench. That was the beginning of her new life. “I would talk to friends going to rehab and I’d say, ‘No, I don’t need a 30-day God to pray to, I’m going to pray to him all the time,’ and that’s what I did.” Lunden’s experience was an example of what Tyler-Smith said the parish hopes to do: bring

change to young people’s lives through spirituality. Support even came in the form of Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis, who sat in the front row during the service, participating for much of it. These events are the first public functions of SOAR, or Street Outreach and Redemption, a group that will serve as an off-

shoot of the Building Bridges initiative. Building Bridges was formed when the Rev. Shawn Walker of the First Baptist Church and the Rev. Michael Brewster of Mt. Zion Baptist Church began their efforts in the wake of Winstead’s death to work with the city in order to make it a safer place for all.

plaints against former assistant coach Sandusky, who was convicted in June of 45 child sexual abuse counts. Gene Marsh, an attorney and former NCAA infractions official, told trustees Sunday that attempts to mitigate the sanctions went nowhere and they were essentially forced on the university. He said most NCAA board members favored the socalled “death penalty” — total shutdown of the football program — for multiple years, and even more sanctions beyond that. “I was also told that the NCAA board thought it was the worst case of loss of institutional control they had ever seen, and that an even greater issue on their mind beyond the acts of individuals was the idea of a ‘culture problem’ at Penn State,” he said. Erickson told trustees he was told that an overwhelming majority of NCAA officials “wanted blood” and the consent decree was “a take-it-orleave-it proposition” — and any leak of details would take the deal off the table. After consulting with the university’s executive committee and receiving legal advice that he had the power to do so, he signed the agreement, he said. “I have to tell you that this was far and away the most difficult decision I’ve ever made in my 40-year professional career,” he said. He said losing the football program for several years would have harmed that program, possibly including expulsion from the Big 10 conference, as well as other sports programs, and “an empty stadium for multiple years would have a drastic impact on the economy of central Pennsylvania and beyond.” Member after member then spoke in support of the president’s decision, many saying he faced an impossible choice and acted in the best interests of the university, and many said it was time for board members to unite and move on. Gov. Tom Corbett, who serves on the board, said he believed the NCAA sanctions

“went beyond the mission and oversight authority of the organization, but that argument is for another day.” Erickson, Corbett said, “faced a dilemma of two very undesirable choices. He chose, I think correctly, the lesser of the two severe punishments.” Trustee Samuel Hayes Jr. called Erickson “an honorable man ... faced with impossible alternatives.” Trustee Anthony Lubrano, however, said he too wanted to move forward but “not at the price of our proud past.” He criticized the actions of the NCAA and the resources it relied upon, especially the school’s internal investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh, the findings of which he called “so inconsistent with reality that I find them to be intentionally inflammatory.” “For example, Penn State athletics has served as a model program for the NCAA member institutions, contrary to the assertion that Penn State athletics had a ‘culture problem.’ For those of us involved with Penn State athletics, we know just how untrue that is.” Erickson said the agreement with the NCAA would allow for changes based on the agreement of both parties, but Marsh warned that the NCAA had never before granted “time off for good behavior.” The family of former football coach Joe Paterno, who was ousted shortly before his death in January, has sought to appeal the NCAA’s decision, but the organization has said the decision is not subject to appeals. Trustee Ryan McCombie also said he would appeal but told fellow members Sunday that he had told his attorney to refrain from legal action “to allow for sufficient time for full and deliberate review.” His attorney later said McCombie had agreed to “temporarily suspend” the appeal but had not agreed to withdraw it.

ments, council members recently urged managers or owners of private-sector companies in the county to consider applying for several vacancies on the Workforce Investment Board, which oversees job placement and training programs and CareerLink centers in Luzerne and Schuylkill counties. Council members appoint county representatives to the board, and the law says some seats must be held by private business leaders. Luzerne County won’t have equal representation if the seats

remain empty due to a lack of interest, council members said. Applications to serve on this board and others filled by council are available on the boards, authorities and commissions link of the county website. • Council members have been pressing outside boards and authorities to submit bylaws, meeting minutes and other documents of interest for posting on the website. Council members say they want the county site to be a clearinghouse for information on outside board activity. More than 31 authorities and boards are listed on the site, along with the names of all board members and submitted documents.

• Robert Powell lost his former Butler Township law office to the bank during a county mortgage foreclosure sale Friday, according to the county sheriff’s office. Powell is serving an 18-month prison sentence after pleading guilty in July 2009 to charges of failing to report a crime relating to his kickback payments to former county judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella. The Dunmore-based First National Community Bank had initiated mortgage foreclosure proceedings against the property, listed under Powell’s company Big Kahuna Realty LLC, in April 2010. The building on 5 acres was listed for $1.38 million.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Rory McIlroy dressed the part as golf’s next star and played like it, too. Saving his bright red shirt for Sunday in the PGA Championship, McIlroy never gave anyone much of a chance. Two exquisite shots with the wedge set up backto-back birdies to seize control of the final round. He never made a bogey over the final 23 holes of his marathon day. McIlroy validated his eightshot win at the U.S. Open last year by blowing away the field at Kiawah Island, making the 23year-old from Northern Ireland the youngest player since Seve See PGA, Page 6B

One rockin’ end to ‘glorious’ Games

“We lit the flame, and we lit up the world. When our time came, Britain, we did it right.”

Sebastian Coe London organizing committee chief

By PAUL HAVEN Associated Press

LONDON — With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun. The closing ceremony offered a sensory blast including rock ’n’ roll rickshaws, dustbin percussionists, an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red tunics and bearskin hats. The Spice Girls staged a showstopping reunion, and Monty Python’s Eric Idle sauntered through “Always Look on the Bright Side of

Life” — accompanied by Roman centurions, Scottish bagpipers and a human cannonball. It all made for a psychedelic mashup that had 80,000 fans at Olympic Stadium stomping, cheering and singing along. Organizers estimated 300 million or more were watching around the world. What a way to end a games far more successful than many Londoners expected. Security woes were overcome, and traffic nightmares never materialized. The weather held up, more or less, and British athletes overachieved. It all came with a price tag of $14 billion — three times the original

A bit of a tussle, but U.S. still walks away with gold

Rick Yarznbowicz and Sherri Yelen win fourth annual Pauly Friedman Family 5K Run. By ROBERT MINER For The Times Leader

DALLAS – Two runners who only took up running relatively recently scored victories in the fourth annual Pauly Friedman Family 5K Run on Sunday at Misericordia University. Rick Yarznbowicz and Sherri Yelen, who both took up the sport in the last few years, ran away with the wins. Yarznbowicz, 26, of Old Forge, led a field of 48 runners, breaking the tape in 20 minutes and 26 seconds. He outran second-place finisher, Joe O’Brien, 23, of Pittston by 14 seconds. Brian Thomas, 42, of Tunkhannock, finished third,

But nobody wanted to spoil the fun with such mundane concerns, at least not on this night. “We lit the flame, and we lit up the world,” said London organizing committee chief Sebastian Coe. “When our time came, Britain, we did it right.” International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge declared the Olympics over with praise for the athletes. “Through your commitment to fair play, your respect for opponents, and your grace in defeat as well as in victory, you have earned the right to be called Olympians,”

competitive team, and we love when it gets tight. That’s when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in ’08.” Same result, too. The Americans defended their title Sunday by fighting off another huge challenge from Spain, pulling away in the final minutes for a 107-100 victory and their second straight Olympic championship. And just like 2008, the star-studded Americans had to work for this one. The London 2012 daily magazine proclaimed them “the new Dream

LONDON — This was no Dream Team. This was reality. The gold medal was in doubt for the U.S. men’s basketball team. The Americans led Spain by only one point after three quarters, a back-andforth, impossible-to-turn-away-from game that almost anyone would hope for in an Olympic final. Especially, it turns out, the U.S. players. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We didn’t want it easy,” LeBron James said. “A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn’t want it that way.

Joseph helps SWB Yanks earn DH split The Times Leader staff

SYRACUSE -- Corban Joseph blasted a solo homer for the only run of the game as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons defeated the Syracuse Chiefs, 1-0, to salvage a split in a doubleheader Sunday. The Chiefs had won the first game 3-1. Three Yankees pitchers combined to shut out the Chiefs in the nightcap. Chase Whitley started and went four innings, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out four. He was followed by Manny Delcarmen, who got the win by going two innings and allowing just three hits while striking out three. Juan Cedeno pitched the final inning for his fourth save of the season. In the first game, Adam Warren was tagged with the loss despite pitching six strong innings. He allowed just three runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out five. The Yankees and Chiefs take the field again tonight at 7 p.m. in Syracuse. The Yankees send left-hander Mike O’Connor (2-6, 3.76) to the mound, while fellow left-hander John Lannan (7-10, 5.03) gets the nod for the Chiefs. Mets 6, Braves 5 Atlanta

The Orioles were leading New York 3-0 after six innings but the Yankees scored five runs in the top half of the seventh. Heavy rains ended the game in the bottom half of the inning and the score was reverted to the end of the last completed frame giving the Orioles the triumph. This rule was changed in 1980.

Varner wins gold, bonus

Jake Varner of the United States won the Olympic wrestling gold in men’s 96-kilogram freestyle, beating Valerii Andriitsev of Ukraine 1-0, 1-0 Sunday. The win gave the U.S. team multiple Olympic gold-medal winners in men’s wrestling for the first time since 1996. Varner joins Jordan Burroughs, who won the 74-kilogram freestyle on Friday night, as Olympic champions. Varner will also collect a $250,000 bonus from the Living the Dream Medal Fund that supports American wrestling.

LONDON — For all those beach volleyball players who thought Horse Guards Parade transformed itself into the sport’s best Olympic venue yet, wait until they hit the sand in Brazil in four years. It’s Rio’s turn — and if anybody knows how to throw a carnival, the Brazilians sure do. “Rio!Rio!Rio!”BrazilianbeachvolleyballstarEmanuelsaidafterwinningasilvermedallastweek.Emanuelplanstobe there as a fan by then, his international playing days over. Yes, the Brazilians have long begun envisioning their Olympics. With London saying goodbye to a Summer Games that played to wide acclaim, the Olympic baton passes to Rio de Janeiro. And with it comes a whole lot of work for the 2016 hosts. Not to mention loud music and fanfare.

London’s show will prove a tough act to follow, but Rio will be looking to dazzle the world with its beaches and breathtaking views while dealing with the daunting challenge of getting a city ready for the world’s most sweeping sports event. Large-brimmed Brazilian hats sporting the 2016 logo showed up four years early in London. Along with thousands of party-ready Brazilian fans providing the perfect preview of what’s next for the world to see. Carlos Carbajo turned up for a late pub lunch Sunday at St. Stephen’s Tavern near Westminster Abbey after watching Brazil lose the men’s volleyball final to Russia. He has many friends from Brazil and got into the spirit by sporting a Brazilian flag neckscarf for the occasion at Earls Court. “For a few minutes I was picturing myself in the Rio carnival,” said Carbajo, a 26-year-old Spaniard who has lived in

London for nearly two years. “As soon as I got to the Earls Court area, I was overwhelmed and excited by the Brazilians. They created the proper atmosphere, and they are so passionate. Many of them were wearing the logo for 2016 on oversized hats. They are preparing for the Olympics in Rio.” And if people thought those Brazilian costumes were crazy in London — green and yellow wigs, flag leggings, shawls and face paint — wait until those outfits are kicked up a notch once the games come to home soil. Brazil’s victorious women’s volleyball team gave quite a glimpse of what’s ahead. The Brazilians stunned the favored Americans on Saturday, then held an hour-long party at Earls Court, celebrating South America style. Moments after winning a second straight Olympic championship, the players formed a circle with arms around each other as they jumped up and down.

WATER POLO

Croatia reigns in pool Croatia won its first Olympic gold in men’s water polo Sunday, getting two second-half goals each from Miho Boskovic and Maro Jokovic to pull away from Italy for an 8-6 win. With two of the best defenses and goalkeepers — Italy’s Stefano Tempesti and Croatia’s Josip Pavic — in the tournament, the final was a defensive struggle.

VOLLEYBALL

Russia’s 1st title in 32 years Russia won its first men’s volleyball gold in 32 years by rallying past Brazil in five sets. Second-ranked Russia dropped the first two sets and faced two match points before putting together an impressive comeback in a 19-25, 20-25, 29-27, 25-22, 15-9 victory, paced by 7-foot-2 middle blocker Dmitriy Muserskiy’s 31 points. The Russians thought they had won it on Muserskiy’s kill in the fifth set and began to celebrate, but the officials awarded the point to top-ranked Brazil. After regrouping, Muserskiy came right back to spike match point. GYMNASTICS

Another rhythmic gold for Russians The Russians won their fourth straight Olympic gold medal in the rhythmic group event, easily beating Belarus. With Evgeniya Kanaeva winning the individual all-around Saturday, Russia has now won both rhythmic titles at every Olympics since the 2000 Sydney Games. The Russians didn’t even bother waiting for the final standings, exchanging hugs and blowing kisses at the camera before the score of Ukraine, the last team to perform, was announced. Italy was third after appearing to make mistakes on both its routines. The group event involves five gymnasts using two sets of apparatuses — five balls, and three ribbons and two hoops — in routines designed to showcase unison, flexibility and artistic skill. CYCLING

Czech takes mountain bike World champion Jaroslav Kulhavy of the Czech Republic won a two-man sprint to take the gold medal in the men’s mountain bike race. Kulhavy made the most of a final steep ascent on the technical circuit in the English countryside to move ahead of Nino Schurter of Switzerland and then sprinted to the line. Schurter won the silver medal and Marco Aurelio Fontana of Italy took bronze. Kulhavy, whose sole objective this season was the Olympic gold, put his hands on his head as if he couldn’t believe he won. He then tied a Czech flag around his neck like a cape while Schurter, a bronze medalist in Beijing four years ago, collapsed to the ground in exhaustion.

Taurasi looking for 4th gold By DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer

LONDON — Diana Taurasi’s already impressive Olympic resume isn’t finished. The U.S. shooting guard has three gold medals and says she will be at the 2016 Rio Games looking to win a fourth. Still, the 30-year-old Taurasi isn’t ready to pencil herself into an alltime starting lineup of U.S. Olympic women’s basketball players that would no doubt include four-time gold medalists Lisa Leslie and Teresa Edwards. Others, though, say Taurasi belongs. Taurasi averaged a team-high 12.4 points in the London Olympics to lead the U.S. to its fifth consecutive gold medal. She finds a way to win no matter the stage. She won three straight national championships in college, has two WNBA crowns and several Euroleague titles.

Taurasi plans to add more gold to her collection in Rio. Despite her success, Taurasi has her own starting five. “Start with Teresa Edwards, Cheryl Miller, Lisa (Leslie), Sheryl Swoopes and Tina Thompson,” Taurasi said. “I’m sure I’m leaving out a million great names. You could go on about great players, but those five have impacted me the most. If I ever got that opportunity to get to that point it would be really special.” If she’s not there yet, Taurasi is putting herself in the discussion. Taurasi continues to move up in the U.S women’s Olympic record book. She ranks fifth in rebounding (79 boards) and assists (50), and seventh in scoring (254 points) — which has increased in each competition. In 2004, Taurasi came off the bench and averaged 8.5 points a game; she averaged 10.9 as a starter in 2008 and says she’ll be her prime in 2016 at age 34.

“She’s been amazing for USA Basketball,” said Sue Bird, who also has won three gold medals now. “She’s brought so much to the program.” While LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony joined David Robinson as the only three-time Olympians on the men’s side, playing in multiple Olympics is commonplace for the women. Taurasi, Bird and Tamika Catchings became the sixth, seven and eighth women’s players to win three gold medals. The three veterans joined an elite group with three, including: Leslie, Edwards, Katie Smith, Sheryl Swoopes and Dawn Staley. U.S. coach Geno Auriemma believes that’s what sets apart the great ones like Taurasi. “Go through the list of how many people have multiple,” he said. “To be able to do it once or twice and then do it three times that’s longevity, being good to play on national team for 4-8-12 year span that’s saying something.”

Americans, Brits pleased with medal count By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

LONDON — Most medals, most gold medals. The U.S. got what it wanted from these Olympics. So did Britain, riding the wave of home-field advantage for its best Olympic showing in over a century. Some of that may have come at the expense of China, which finished only five medals ahead of Russia, where the Winter Olympics are next, in 2014. The competition is over. The U.S. was best — but the success stories from London truly spanned the globe. “I think these games were absolutely fabulous,” International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said. The final numbers: 104 medals for the United States, 46 of them gold, their highest total at a “road” Olympics. China won 87 medals, 38 of them gold, down from what they did as the home team in 2008. Britain won 29 golds, third-most of any nation, and 65

overall — fourth in that category behind Russia, a winner of 82 medals, 24 gold. Grenada had its first gold medalist, and six other nations sent athletes to the Olympic podium for the first time. Meanwhile, Australia took another step back in its Olympic freefall after a scintillating show in Sydney 12 years ago. In all, 85 nations won something in London, from the U.S. to Tajikistan and dozens of points in between. “We are immensely proud of the success that our athletes had in London,” U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun said Sunday. With good reason. Red, white and blue was everywhere in London over the last two-plus weeks, waved proudly and often. And remember, that’s not just the color scheme of the U.S. flag, but the Union Jack of the British, too. The hosts delivered on a promise of greatness in 2012 — and possibly set the

stage for continued success. “What I’ve witnessed in the last couple of weeks has been both uplifting and energizing,” London Games chief Sebastian Coe said. “I don’t think any country that has staged the games or any city that staged the games is ever the same afterwards.” Neither are the athletes who win them. A boxer from Thailand protested losing a gold-medal fight to a Chinese opponent, and shed tears of disbelief when the decision was announced. He cried again 10 minutes later, holding his silver medal for the first time. “I’m happy. I’m still really happy that I’ve got this silver medal,” said the Thai fighter, Kaeo Pongprayoon. “I’m really proud. It might not be gold, but it’s a medal I can bring back to the Thai people.” The U.S., well, they brought a whole slew of hardware back to the American people. The 46 golds in London were one more than the gold haul from Paris in 1924 and Mexico City in 1968.

LONDON — Most-decorated Olympian Michael Phelps, 27, is thinking about improving his golf game and traveling. Gold medalist Victoria Pendleton, 31, is looking forward to getting married and doing “normal stuff.” Misty Elizabeth May-Treanor, 35, is carting her beach volleyball gold medal home to focus on family. As the London Games come to an end, some 30-odd retiring Olympians face the daunting question — what’s next? For world-class athletes who have focused their lives on training, their next Olympian task has no direct path: Readjusting to a routine outside competitive sports and creating a new life that may or may not involve the limelight. The challenges have given rise to a small field of advisers who specialize in helping retiring athletes cope with what can be an abrupt change. “These people have a strong Olympic identity; they see themselves only as athletes. Unless they have good friendships and connections outside of sport, it can be quite painful,” says Misha Botting, a sports psychologist at the SportScotland Institute. “Most experience a low-mood state after the games because it’s such an exciting event.” As gold medalists, Phelps, Pendleton and May-Treanor have endorsement and coaching possibilities far beyond most top-level athletes, thousands of whom will be leaving London without a medal to gild their careers. Some retiring athletes can suffer depression, according to retired Olympic gymnast Craig Heap, although he told The Associated Press that he was “quite pleased” when he stopped competing at 29. “I was looking forward to my retirement. I had achieved my best and was looking to start another chapter of my life,” said Heap, now 39. Going back to a normal life may run more smoothly for athletes with a day job. But for those who have never worked, the task might be more challenging. It’s here that self-described “performance lifestyle advisers” can help them develop careers outside the sporting world. “We go through their future plan of career, their skills,” said Gary Penn, an adviser with the English Institute of Sport. “We look at their CVs (resumes), help them apply for work. Sometimes we do mock interviews for potential jobs.” All these practical tips can help sportsmen or sportswomen find a new career, but Penn said careful preparation and realistic planning are essential. “Athletes tend to neglect that part,” he said. “My biggest fear is that they only focus on the Olympics goals and don’t think about what comes after. When they do, it’s too late.”

Ballesteros to win two majors. Tiger Woods was about four months older than McIlroy when he won his second major. “I think I heard Tiger say, ‘You can have a good season, but to make a good season a great season, you need a major championship,”’ said McIlroy, who returned to No. 1 in the world. “Now I’ve had two great seasons in a row no matter what happens from here in now. Hopefully, I can play some great golf from now until the end of the year and get myself ready for another great season next year, too.” Standing on the 18th tee with a seven-shot lead, McIlroy turned to caddie J.P. Fitzgerald and said, “I’m going to win this one by eight, as well.” McIlroy rolled in a 25-foot birdie putt, raising the putter in his left hand as the ball rolled true to the center of the cup, saving enough strength to lift the heavy Wanamaker Trophy after another command performance in a major championship. He shattered the scoring record at the U.S. Open. He broke Jack Nicklaus’ record in the PGA Championship for margin of victory. McIlroy took the lead for good Sunday morning with back-to-back birdies on the back nine to finish a rain-delayed third round at 67 for a three-shot lead. No one got closer than two shots at any point in the final round, and that last birdie gave McIlroy a 6-under 66. David Lynn, a 38-year-old from England who was playing in America for the first time, won the B-flight. He closed with a 68 and was the runner-up. Woods, who shared the 36hole lead for the second time this year in a major, was never a serious factor. He tossed away his chances Saturday before the storm blew in and never could get closer than four shots. He closed with a 72, failing to break par on the weekend in any of the four majors for the first time in his career. McIlroy was 13 shots better than Woods over the last two rounds. “It was a great round of golf.

I’m speechless,” McIlroy said after hoisting the trophy. “It’s just been incredible. I had a good feeling about it at the start. I never imagined to do this.” Winning the final major the year ends what had been a tumultuous season for McIlroy. Despite winning the Honda Classic in early March and going to No. 1 for the first time in his career, he went into a tail spin by missing four cuts over five tournaments as questions swirled that his romance with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki was hurting his game. Instead, McIlroy put a big hurt on the strongest field of the year. “I was a little frustrated with how I was playing earlier on in the year, but a few people in this room were probably pushing panic buttons for no reason,” McIlroy said. “It’s just great to be able to put my name on another major championship trophy, and looking forward to April next year and getting a crack at another one.” Woods predicted greatness for McIlroy when he first came to America at 19. “He’s very good. We all know the talent he has,” Woods said. “He went through a little spell this year, and I think that was good for him. We all go through those spells in our careers. He’s got all the talent in the world to do what he’s doing. And this is the way that Rory can play. When he gets it going, it’s pretty impressive to watch.” McIlroy finished on 13-under 275. Ian Poulter put up the stiffest challenge, though not for long. Poulter, who started the final round six shots behind, made six birdies through seven holes to get within two shots. He made three straight bogeys on the back nine and had to settle for a 69. He tied for third at 4under 284, along with Justin Rose (66) and defending champion Keegan Bradley (68). In the final qualifying event for the U.S. Ryder Cup team, nothing changed. Phil Mickelson was holding down the eighth and final spot, and he stayed there when neither Bo Van Pelt nor Steve Stricker could make a move on the back nine. Davis Love III will announce four captains’ picks in three weeks.

Team” in an article, but the real Dream Team never had a game like this 20 years ago in Barcelona. And if that means this group isn’t worthy of the comparisons to Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Co., the players had their own response. “Everybody wants to make that comparison, but at the end of the day we’re both wearing these,” forward Kevin Love said, pulling on his gold medal. “That’s pretty good.” James capped one of basketball’s most brilliant individual years with a monster dunk and a huge 3-pointer in the final 2:50 that finally ended a Spanish threat few expected after the Americans had been so dominant for so long in London. Yet four years after beating Spain 118-107 in a classic in Beijing, the U.S. found itself in another tight one, unable to ever really slow the Spanish down until the closing minutes. Kevin Durant scored 30 points and James had 19 on a day he joined Jordan as the only players

to win the NBA title, regular-season MVP, NBA Finals MVP and Olympic gold in the same year. “It was a good year. It was a great year for me as an individual,” James said. “But this right here, it means more than myself, it means more than my name on my back. It means everything to the name on the front. I’m happy that I was able to contribute to this great team. It’s one of the best teams ever.” Coach Mike Krzyzewski, who has said he’s retiring as national team coach after restoring the Americans to their place atop world basketball, emptied his bench in the final minute James stood with both arms in the air, then held Durant in a long hug before they came off the court. The Americans, who insisted they were better than their 2008 version and even good enough to take a game from the 1992 Dream Team, may not have been at that level. Still, they were better again than Spain — though not by much. When the final horn sounded, Krzyzewski locked James in a tight embrace as Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The USA” rocked

55 seconds behind O’Brien. “I tried to run my own pace,” said Yarznbowicz, who only took up running about five years ago. “(O’Brien) took over the lead at the turnaround at the halfway point of the race. He forced me out of my normal pace. I started pushing and caught and passed him and took back the lead with about a quarter of a mile to go.” Yarznbowicz, who is a physical therapist, didn’t run in high school or college. He played defensive end for the Old Forge High School football team. He took up running while attending the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. Yelen, who also took up running just a few years ago, won top female honors with a fourth-place overall finish in 22:51. The 40year-old from Kingston outran second-place finisher Joan Beyer, 24, of Swoyersville, by 1:30. Melissa Davis, 29, of Wilkes-Barre, finished third in 25:07. “I went out and ran at what is for me a comfortable pace,” said Yelen, who is a chemistry teacher at Meyers High School. “As the

race went on, I started pushing myself. I eventually caught and passed the leading female on an uphill at about two thirds of the way into the race.” Once Yelen became the female leader, she really started pushing. “My competitive nature kicked in,” she said. “And I started trying to pick off as many guys as I could. I believe I passed three guys en route to the finish.” Sunday’s race was just Yelen’s third ever. Her second, the Endure American Cancer Society 5K Run in Wilkes-Barre, was the day before. And she won that race too. Proceeds from the race go to Family Service Association of Wyoming Valley’s Help Line division.

CLOSING Continued from Page 1B

he said, adding: “These were happy and glorious games.” But the night was about splash more than speeches. Festive and fast-moving, the ceremony opened with pop bands Madness, Pet Shop Boys and One Direction, a shout-out to Winston Churchill and a tribute to the Union Jack — the floor of Olympic Stadium floor arranged to resemble the British flag. Monochrome recreations of London landmarks were covered in newsprint, from Big Ben’s clock tower and Tower Bridge to the London Eye ferris wheel and the chubby highrise known as the Gherkin. Street percussion group Stomp built the noise into a frenzy, and dancers brandished brooms, in a nod to the spontaneous popular movement to clean up London after riots shook neighborhoods not far from Olympic Stadium just a year ago. Liam Gallagher performed “Wonderwall,” a1990s hit by his former band, Oasis, Muse rocked the house with the hardedged Olympic anthem “Survival,” and Queen guitarist Brian May was joined by singer Jessie J for a crowd-pleasing “We Will Rock You.” The headline performers were each paid a pound, a little more than $1.50. The night ended with the extinguishing of the multi-petaled Olympic cauldron and a supercharged rendition of “My Generation” and other classics by The Who that had the crowd dancing in the aisles. Confetti rained down, and fireworks lit up the sky. Prince William’s wife, Kate, and Prince Harry took seats next to Rogge. They sang along to “God Save the Queen.” There was no sign of the queen herself, who made a memorable mock parachute entrance at the July 27 opening ceremony. Following Olympic tradition, the 10,800 athletes of the London Games marched in as one rather than with their nations, symbolizing the harmony and friendship inspired by the games. As the crowd cheered their heroes and flashbulbs rippled through the stadium, the Olympians cheered back, some carrying national flags, others snapping photographs with smartphones and cameras. They held hands, embraced and carried each other on their shoulders, finally forming a human mosh pit on the field. The ceremony had something for everyone, from tween girls to 1960s hippies. The face of John Lennon appeared on the stadium floor, assembled by 101 fragments of sculpture, and just as quickly gave way to George Michael, Fatboy Slim and Annie Lennox. Eight minutes were turned over to Brazil, host of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, which delivered an explosion of samba, sequins and Latin cool. Following tradition, the mayor of London handed the Olympic flag off to his Rio counterpart.

the arena. The Americans hugged at midcourt, guard James Harden holding a doll of the Olympic mascot, and then after being handed flags, this group of NBA players — and one kid just out of college — who grew into a tight-knit group during their time together, paraded around the floor, the Stars and Stripes flowing off their backs like capes. Yes, they were Olympic superheroes again, but they had to fight until the finish. “To do it twice is a special moment,” Carmelo Anthony said. “As the U.S. men’s team, we go through a lot. For us to persevere the way we did is just a special moment for myself, and for the guys who are on this team.” For Kobe Bryant, it was his last Olympic moment. “This is it for me,” said Bryant, who scored 17 points and now has a second gold medal to go with his five NBA championships. “The other guys are good to go.” Pau Gasol scored 24 points and Juan Carlos Navarro had 21 for Spain, which was again just a few minutes from its first basketball gold but couldn’t finish the job against the Americans.

A few gems of wisdom from preseason Week 1 Remember the name William Powell. The former undrafted free agent from Kansas State had 92 yards and a TD on nine carries in the Cardinals’ game against the Chiefs Friday night. That’s a stellar 10.2 yards per carry. In comparison, the great Jim Brown averaged 5.2 YPC in his career. Pretty impressive stuff, huh? Now, forget about the name William Powell. Because none of it matters. It’s the first week of preseason football, and it’s about as meaningful as Lady Gaga’s Twitter feed. If you need proof of that,

Since Hillis was going to get the goal-line work anyway, he could end up being the Chiefs RB you want. RB Chris Rainey may have a nice role in the Steelers offense. Rainey’s a small, fast back in the mold of the Chiefs’ Dexter McCluster and Saints’ Darren Sproles. He’ll never be the main ball carrier, but he could be used as change of pace guy and as a receiver.

You never know. The Colts WRs may be more valuable than you thought. This is Andrew Luck’s team now and the Colts’ staff is very impressed with the young QB. Of course, ALL teams say they’re impressed with their rookie QBs, but Luck went out and had a nice NFL debut. Chances are his rookie year yields mixed fantasy results for him, but he could raise the value of Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie. On Sunday, Collie caught three passes for 45 yards and a TD. That’s a good sign. Rich Sheposh is a page designer, editor and ne’er-do-well who writes stuff about fantasy sports. If you feel so inclined, you can reach him at rsheposh@timesleader.com

Marcos Ambrose holds off Brad Keselowski in wild final lap at Watkins Glen. By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Marcos Ambrose passed Brad Keselowski on the final lap, then held him off in a fender-banging duel to win the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International for the second straight time. Kyle Busch, desperate for a win to move back into contention for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, was in control of the race but was leaking oil on the track. He skidded sideways coming out of the first turn of the final lap. Keselowski’s No. 2 Dodge caromed off the side of the No. 18 Toyota and Ambrose followed KeseAmbrose lowski through. “Busch slipped up big in turn one,” said Keselowski, who suffered damage to the front of his car. “There was nothing he could do. We all checked up and Marcos was right on my bumper. We all just about spun out. We got to the inner loop, and again nothing but oil.” Slipping and sliding around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile layout, Ambrose and Keselowski battled side by side nearly all the way around. Both went into the grass in the inner loop at the top of the highspeed esses but kept charging. Ambrose slipped again in turn 10, but Keselowski couldn’t drive past. Neither gave ground, but Ambrose forged ahead in his Richard Petty Motorsports Ford on the final turn, another hard righthander, and turned away Keselowski’s final charge on the outside. “I must have hit the oil one more time and he didn’t,” Keselowski said. “I thought I had him, but I hit more oil than Marcos did.” Entering the race, Ambrose had one win and had never finished lower than third in four starts at The Glen for an average finish of 2.3 and an average green flag speed of nearly 120 mph. Both were tops in the series. Jimmie Johnson was third to gain the points lead by one over Greg Biffle. Sonoma winner Clint Bowyer and Sam Hornish Jr. were next, giving Dodge two in the top five. Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun late and finished 28th to fall from first to fourth in points, 17 behind Johnson. Biffle was sixth, and Busch, Matt Kenseth, Regan Smith and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10. Ryan Newman finished 11th to move back ahead of Jeff Gordon into the second wild card slot. Kasey Kahne, who has two wins, holds the other. Gordon was also a victim of the oil, spinning late and dropping to 21st after having driven past Newman.

Falcons’ Jones is a talent and is already being drafted among the top WRs. But when you haul in six catches for 106 yards and a TD in the first team’s limited time on the field, that means Atlanta is trying to make a statement. And that would be, “Hey NFL. Look what we got.” WR Keshawn Martin may have a fantasy impact in Houston. Andre Johnson keeps getting hurt for the Texans. That isn’t a big secret. Johnson didn’t play in week one, but Martin did. And it was Martin who was the main target when Matt Schaub and the first team were in. Now, don’t expect Martin to be a fantasy star. But come midseason, Martin’s gotten some work in the offense, Johnson gets hurt … Hmmmm.

Ryu’s birdie string gives her Farr win By RUSTY MILLER AP Sports Writer

SYLVANIA, Ohio — A birdie binge drove So Yeon Ryu to victory in the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic. Ryu rode a string of six straight birdies in the middle of her round to a 9-under 62 and a seven-stroke victory Sunday at Highland Meadows. The 22-year-old began the day in the midst of a four-player logjam — all South Koreans — for first place. She took the lead by herself for the first time with an 8-foot birdie putt at the third

66 to finish second. Ryu ended up at 20-under 264 thanks to the lowest final round by a Farr winner — by three strokes. South Koreans Inbee Park and Chella Choi each shot 69 and shared third place at 12 under. Ryu grabbed the lead on the third hole. From out of the light left rough, she hit her approach 8 feet over the flag and made the birdie putt to get to 12 under and break free of the pack. She added a12-footer for birdie at the par-4 fifth.

INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck started his NFL career just like Peyton Manning — with a long touchdown pass on his first throw. Then he one-upped his predecessor by winning his first NFL preseason game, 38-3 over St. Louis. It was a perfect opening day for Luck and the Colts. Indianapolis’s coaches wanted this year’s No. 1 overall draft pick to take 20 to 25 snaps. He got 24. They wanted to keep him upright, and though Luck hit the ground twice, he was not sacked. They wanted him to show his command of the offense, and in less than a half of play, Luck seemed to take a page right out of Manning’s playbook. Luck wound up of 10 of 16 for 188 yards with two TD passes. Three of the incompletions were drops, two were throwaways, and only one pass, a deep out to rookie T.Y. Hilton, came close to being picked off. But Hilton hauled it in, barely getting both feet inbounds, and in typical Manning fashion, Luck rushed the Colts to the line of scrimmage and snapped the ball before the Rams could challenge. But it was Luck’s quick start that dazzled Colts fans. With the rookie quarterback under pressure on his first NFL play, Luck calmly dumped the ball off to Brown, who darted up the field with blockers in front, then cut from right to left and outran the defense to the end

zone. Luck pumped his fist in the air and jogged to the sideline with a broad smile across his face. It was only the start. On Luck’s third series, he converted a third-and-3 with the 12yard completion to Hilton. Four plays later, Austin Collie beat zone coverage and Luck found him in the front corner of the end zone for a 23-yard score to give Indy a 14-0 lead. Not enough? After the Rams got a 37-yard field goal, cutting the lead to 14-3, Luck answered with a methodical 13-play, 80yard drive, disregarding the three drops. Delone Carter ended the drive with a 1-yard run to make it 21-3.

Fins’ Johnson out of jail after wife claims abuse The Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. — Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson was released from jail Sunday on $2,500 bond, a day after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their Florida home. Johnson, 34, had been charged with domestic violence. Broward County jail officials said he was released Sunday afternoon. Johnson’s defense attorney, Adam Swickle, said a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show “Basketball Wives.” Such orders are common in domestic violence cases. Swickle declined to comment further. Police say Johnson was arrested Saturday. Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said the argument started when Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms. According to an arrest affidavit, Johnson’s wife said she was taking groceries into their home when she found the receipt in the car’s trunk. When the two were seated back in the car, they began talking about the receipt and

their marriage. That’s when Johnson got upset and headbutted his wife, the report says. Lozada ran to a neighbor’s Johnson house and called police. A responding officer said he saw a 3-inch cut on Lozada’s forehead, according to the affidavit. Johnson did not have any visible marks or bruises. When questioned by police, he confirmed there was an argument over the receipt, but said his wife had head-butted him. The officer, based on interviews and observations, charged Johnson with simple domestic battery. If convicted, Johnson faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, though he could also receive community service, probation or anger management classes. He was known as Ochocinco for the past four seasons. But he changed his name back to Johnson after his July 4 wedding to Lozada. The name was a playful reference to the No. 85 he wore on his jersey.

This week looks like it will be pretty decent with warm average temperatures and a few scattered showers and thunderstorms mixed with some sun. Today will start off cooler than it has been lately but warm up nicely to 83 degrees with partly cloudy skies. A cold front will bring showers and a possible thunderstorm on Tuesday afternoon and evening. It will be partly sunny with a chance for some leftover showers on Wednesday. The sun will return Thursday with mostly sunny skies. Another cold front will move in on Friday and bring showers and thunderstorms that last through Saturday. - Michelle Rotella

Wedding weekend turns old childhood crush into extramarital affair Dear Abby: “Jane,” the daughter of a lifelong friend, attended my son’s wedding with her husband. My son and Jane have known each other since childhood, and always flirted and acted as if they had a crush on each other. To make a long story short, after seeing each other during the weekend, my son left his wife of only one month and started a long-distance relationship with Jane. Jane continues to live with her husband. My son and Jane have been open about their relationship with everyone in our families except her father and her husband. Needless to say, those of us who know about this de-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE ceptive relationship are sick at heart and skeptical about who Jane’s true love is — her husband or my son. Jane’s sister is being married soon. If Jane is still keeping my son in a closet, I don’t want to see her at the upcoming wedding. Jane’s husband may not be going because there’s evidence he might have an idea that his marriage is not healthy. Should we attend the wedding to support my life-long friend, or stay away to avoid the pain of seeing the woman who has kept my son on a roller-coaster ride for years? — To Go or Not to Go?

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear T.G. or Not T.G.: Let me get this straight. Your son dumped his wife of only one month for a married woman, and you’re worried about HIS pain? Stop involving yourself in this melodrama and let him work this out for himself. If Jane dumps her husband for him, he may have the girl of his childhood dreams. If she doesn’t he will learn an important life lesson. As to whether you should attend Jane’s sister’s wedding, take a Dramamine and go. It’s going to be a thrill ride I wouldn’t miss if I could get a ticket. Dear Abby: I am a frequent international traveler with a problem. I always pack food for myself to take onboard. My trips are often 20 hours or longer and involve several planes. I

CRYPTOQUOTE

find many people neglect to pack any food and they wind up asking — or begging — me to give them some of mine. It’s very awkward for me. On one flight, I overheard a woman tell her son, “Go ask that man for some cookies,” and the kid did come over. How do I handle this? There are times I have to spend five or seven hours in an airport after midnight waiting for the next flight, and that food is my reserve. — Not Stingy in Florida Dear Not Stingy: I’m glad you have given me the chance to remind travelers that the food on airplanes isn’t what it was years ago — particularly for passengers flying coach. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and bring something onboard — fruit,

candy, a sandwich — particularly when traveling with children. Of course it’s hard to refuse someone in a situation like the one you described. I suppose you could have told the child, “Didn’t your mother warn you not to take food from strangers?” But then you’d have to live with the image of a hungry child sitting two rows back. Sometimes you do have to “just say no.” Explain that you have a long layover and need the emergency provisions for yourself. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ve been enjoying plenty of unscheduled time. Now it’s time to get back into a routine and get busy with various projects so you can have some of that unscheduled time again in the future. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Unintentionally hurting someone close to you is sometimes unavoidable. But you can mitigate the wound with a swift and sincere apology. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You usually roll with the financial dips and dollops, accepting that reasonable fluctuations are a natural part of life. You’ll impress others with your unflappable courage. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Actors joke that “dying is easy; comedy is hard.” Some troubles are hard to laugh off, but now you’ll find that you can smile at memories that once brought only frowns. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Keep in mind that everyone is dealing with life on his or her own scale. It might be vastly different from the system of measurement you are using, but that doesn’t make it better or worse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A friendship that you gave up on long ago is going to surprise you. It’s OK to be cautious, but remember to give this person the benefit of your doubt, which you would want someone to give to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A recent injustice will be righted, thanks to your diligence and concern. But don’t gloat over your victory. Remember to exercise magnanimity toward foes.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, but you might want to know if it’s going to rain. Careful preparation and knowledge will save the day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s true that time is money, but don’t forget that money is time. Stop spending, and start saving — and not just for rainy days, but for unexpected adventures and the fun on your horizon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s important to daydream and scheme about your goals. But remember to build your castle with the bricks of practical, everyday steps toward your goals, and not with beach sand. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A work relationship suddenly blooms in unexpected, delightful ways, and praise for a job well done will come your way just when you think your hard work is going unappreciated. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A wise man once said, “You have to be willing to be lucky.” Even when it feels like you’re surrounded by closed doors, look closer. Opportunity is often a door opened just a crack. Don’t be afraid to push. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 13). You’ll open the door to a new world that someday you will rule. You’ll be given new resources in September. What you build in October lasts you a lifetime. The feature of September is a solid education and social connections to help you along. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 49, 18 and 19.
