Shooting of woman in Noxen Twp. probed


NOXEN TWP. – State police in Tunkhannock are seeking tips from the public as they continue an investigation of a shooting Sunday night near the Mehoopany wind farm project. Police said five people – four of them from Luzerne County – were riding in a vehicle in the area of the wind farm project when they were stopped by a man who told them they were trespassing, police said.

The man brandished a stainless-steel .22caliber revolver and told the victims to leave the area. The victims, whose names police did not release, complied and began to drive away, when the suspect fired a round at them and missed. The man then fired a second shot, which struck a 58-year-old woman from Clifford, Susquehanna County, who was seated behind the driver. The shot struck the woman in her shoulder area, police said.

The victims continued driving down the mountain and were met by emergency personnel. The gunshot victim was flown to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, where she remained under observation. Others in the vehicle included a 43-yearold man and a 46-year-old woman, both from Trucksville; and a 14-year-old boy and a 54-year-woman, both from Shavertown. See SHOOTING, Page 2A

Hazleton arts center renamed Officially dubbed the “Alice C. Wiltsie Performing Arts Center” in tribute to the family that sponsored the Garfunkel center’s name, the venue emerged from the disused auditorium of the imposing Hazleton High School, itself on the verge of extinction before community outcry spared it.

HAZLETON – It was created as part of the effort to save what Hazleton residents long recognized as the “Castle on the Hill.” Yet as its second season starts, many still don’t make the connection. Thus on Monday a new name was unveiled: “Wiltsie Center at the Historic Castle,” along with a new membership program dubbed the “Castle Club,” and a new schedule headlined by Art Garfunkel. See CASTLE, Page 10A

A group that tested the ease of obtaining a state photo ID card for voting got mixed results at Luzerne County’s two Photo ID centers: A volunteer who tested the Hanover Township center found no major problems, while a test at the Hazle Township center ran into multiple roadblocks. The Hazle Township center lacked signs guiding people to where they had to go, had one of two stations needed to obtain an ID card closed, and a clerk told the volunteer testing the system that the ID card would cost $13.50, even though it is supposed to be free for voting purposes, said Sharon Ward, executive director of the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center. The center bills itself as “a nonpartisan, statewide policy research project that provides independent, credible analysis on state tax, budget and related policy matters.” It sent volunteers to state photo ID centers with a handful of things to look for, and issued a report Aug. 3 noting difficulties those volunteers met See VOTER, Page 10A

POLICE BLOTTER HAZLETON – U.S. marshals on Monday arrested a suspect in a Boston slashing incident in Hazleton. U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Luis Arias, 25, accused in a domestic attack that occurred in early May. On June 21, the Boston Police Department obtained an arrest warrant in the Roxbury District Court, charging Arias with assault to murder, assault and battery with a deadly weapon and mayhem. Arias allegedly slashed and stabbed the victim, causing her to have to receive more than 190 stitches and staples to her body. On July 16, the U.S. Marshals Service in Boston began assisting in the manhunt. Information was developed that the fugitive is a native of the Dominican Republic, and that he uses multiple aliases, including Christian SosaDiaz. It was determined he may have fled to the Hazleton area. Investigative leads were forwarded to Marshals Service personnel based in Scranton. On Monday, Deputy U.S. marshals and members of the service’s Middle District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force located and arrested Arias hiding in the basement of an apartment in the 400 block of West Spruce Street in Hazleton. When taken into custody, Arias was non-compliant and provided a false name, Pane said. Arias was turned over to the Pennsylvania State Police for processing. He will be charged as a fugitive-from-justice and await court proceedings before District Judge Jamie Dixon in Hazle Township concerning his extradition to Massachusetts. “The Marshals Service and its fugitive task forces are committed to making our communities safer by ridding our streets of such violent fugitives. It is my sincere hope that the victim may rest a little easier with the alleged perpetrator off the street,” Pane said. U.S. marshals were assisted by several agencies that comprise its Fugitive Task Force, including the Lackawanna County Sheriff’s Office, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Pennsylvania State Police and the Hazleton Police Department. HAZLE TWP. – William Dura Jr., 81, of Hazleton reported two tires on his 1979 Chevrolet 3500 box truck were punctured between 7 p.m. Saturday and 4:15 p.m. Sunday while it was parked on Lehigh Valley Drive. Anyone with information about the damage is asked to contact state police Hazleton at 570 4593890. HAZLE TWP. – State police on Sunday filed citations against Barry Markle, 40, of Hazle Township charging him with harassment after he allegedly punched Joseph Paterick, 25, twice in the face. Markle approached Paterick outside Paterick’s residence on West Green Street shortly after 8 p.m. and punched him, state police said. Paterick’s mother, Lenore, 47, tried to get Markle away from her son and was pushed by Markle, state police said. Markle left before state police arrived. SUGAR NOTCH – Gail Brennan, 32, of rear 900 Main St., Sugar Notch, was arrested at her home at about 5 p.m. Monday and charged with the sale and manufacture of marijuana at her home after a joint undercover investigation conducted by state police Troop P Vice/Narcotics Unit and Sugar Notch police, state police said. Police seized about 41 grams of marijuana and various drug paraphernalia during the investigation, police said.


Sign continues as divisive issue

By SARAH HITE Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. -- The Dallas School Board continued its discussion about placing a large, business-sponsored digital sign on school property at a regular meeting Monday. Chad Lojewski said the Dallas Educational Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for district projects, would purchase the sign for about $40,000 and donate it to the district. The foundation would then solicit businesses to sponsor the sign, which would provide a continual source of revenue for the foundation to fund more projects within the district. Lojewski said the owners of land where the current district sign along state Route 309 is lo-

cated did not want businesses featured on the sign. Lojewski asked the district to allow the sign to be placed on district property. He also provided the board with a complete proposal and list of parameters for advertising on the sign. Lojewski compared the sign to an athletic team booster club program, in which the advertisements are used for name recognition and not targeted to specific products. The parameters also stated

the district had a right to reject any potential sponsor, though any sponsor deemed inappropriate “would not be approached.” Board member Maureen Matiska said she still wasn’t sure about the proposal because she felt “some things cheapen the school.” Solicitor Benjamin Jones III told Lojewski the district policy would have to be updated to include the sign, as the district currently prohibits commercial use of its property. The board will need to approve two readings of the updated policy before it can move forward with the sign project.

Arrest of officers discussed By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

WEST WYOMING -- Council president Eileen Cipriani addressed a packed audience at Monday’s meeting about the arrests of police Chief Stanley Sipko and former Chief David Gashi. The two were arrested on July 20 in connection with thefts from the borough payroll system. “Although this may seem like a new episode of illegal activity in the borough, it is ac-

tually the closing of a corrupt chapter in our borough’s history,” she said. In related business, council voted to appoint Cipriani to lead the employment investigation of Sipko. In another matter, a number of residents spoke against the proposed construction of a UGI natural gas compressor station to be located on the border of West Wyoming and Kingston Township. “None of us (on council) want it up there,” Councilman

Len Tarreto said. “We’ll do everything in our power to keep it out of there.” Council urged everyone to voice their opposition at a Luzerne County zoning hearing scheduled for Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. in the courthouse. Cipriani said council has indicated its opposition to the proposed project on its Facebook page, the borough’s website and in newspaper articles. “Trust us,” she said, “council has made a statement opposing it.”


Housing complex to draw complaint By SCOTT L. GOMB Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. – Commissioners said they will file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development against Hanover Village Apartments. The move comes after residents who live adjacent to the apartments voiced their concerns to commissioners at Monday night’s meeting about the growing trouble in the area. “I don’t feel safe living in my own home,” one Highland Drive resident told commissioners. “We don’t know what else to do.” Residents told commissioners that since Easter, they’ve had to deal with arson, knocked-down fences, stolen property and numerous acts of vandalism. Just this past week, vandals threw eggs at parked cars, they said. Residents said they reported it to the apartment complex managers, but management told them that there’s nothing they can do.

Commissioner Jeffery Lewis said the first step the township plans to take is to file a formal complaint with HUD. The complaint will be filed before the September commissioner’s meeting, he said. Commissioner Frank Ciavarella said it’s a burden on residents who live in the area to have to deal with the problems. In other business: •The commissioners approved a payment of $22,845 to Multiscape Inc. to replace a section of drain pipe on Redcoat Lane and $9,500 to Ed Krasavage Construction to repair a collapsed manhole in the Newtown section. •Ciavarella and Commissioner William Watkins voted against hiring attorney Dick Goldberg and an associate at an hourly rate of $410 to represent the township in case it goes to arbitration with the police department. Chairman Al Bagusky said the move to hire Goldberg was a precaution and he didn’t know if the township would go to arbitration.

Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds Mark Kraynack said the players should not be practicing on that field at all. He said the football team has two practice fields, and the stadium field should be used for games only. Kraynack added that once the players are moved to another field, he believes he can get the stadium field to “what it used to be” by the time the first football game is played.

Wyoming will examine bids for Sharp St. By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WYOMING -- Bids for the borough’s Sharp Street paving project were opened at the regular council meeting on Monday, with Popple Construction of Laflin submitting the low bid of $88,000 for the proposed work. According to council, the bid will be formally awarded contingent upon review by the borough engineer. In other business: •Council voted to award the storm drain repair work at the corners of Breese Street and Wyoming Avenue and Dennison Street and 8th Street to The Ed Krasvage Co. at an amount of $3,800 per location. •Council announced the borough has begun the application process for the 2013 community development grant for the maximum amount of $75,000 for road resurfacing and stormsewer drain repair in the First Ward. •Council voted to approve sending a “letter of concern” to the Luzerne County Zoning Board about the proposed construction of a natural gas compression station in neighboring West Wyoming Borough.

None of them was injured, police said. The shooting suspect is described as a white male, about 50 years old, about 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall, about 150 to 170 pounds, with brown, wavy hair and a brown, bushy beard. He was operating a green ATV. Anyone with information is asked to call state police in Tunkhannock at 836-2141. The trooper in charge of the investigation could not be reached for comment on Monday.

New W-B Area hiring policy advances Input by public will be included By MARK GUYDISH

WILKES-BARRE – Public input helped alter the proposed Wilkes-Barre Area School Board hiring policy, and the changes will be incorporated in a revised version to be brought before the board at Wednesday’s meeting. The agenda unveiled at Monday’s work session did not include a vote on the policy Wednesday. Board President Maryanne Toole said the board received suggested changes after public


release of the proposed policy in February and incorporated some of them into the document, though she added there were no major changes to a proposal that calls for an initial screening and numeric rating of applications and related paperwork without board input. High scorers would then be interviewed, again without board involvement, and the top scorers in that process would be presented for the board to vote on. Toole had first moved to draw up a new hiring policy in December 2009, after several

board members were charged by federal agents for involvement in bribes from teacher candidates. The effort languished until Toole became board president last December, and while it hasn’t moved quickly, the matter has been brought up regularly at meetings. The board hasn’t had a written policy for years, possibly decades, following a procedure that allowed members to take turns recommending who gets an interview. The board also learned that the long struggle to resolve a

chronic water leak under the concrete basement floor of Meyers High School may be coming to a close. Work on replacing the old water main with one above the concrete should be finished this week. The big test comes when the old line is shut off and the new one pressurized. Board members have voiced concern that other pipes may spring leaks once full pressure is restored. But as one problem is resolved others crop up. The stage at GAR High School has been closed because of imminent danger in the system used to hoist curtains, lights and props. A fix could run as high as

Defense attorneys in the case of a 19-year-old charged in the December 2009 shooting death of his greatgrandfather have appealed a judge’s recent ruling ordering the teen’s case be heard in adult court. Attorneys Peter Paul Olszewski, Melissa Scartelli Lee and Charles Rado filed an appeal to the state Superior Court over Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr.’s decision last week to have Cody Lee’s case heard in adult court. The attorneys had been seeking to have Lee’s case heard in juvenile court because Lee was 16 at the time of the shooting that left 80-year-old Herbert Lee dead. Prosecutors recently asked a county judge to send the case back to a district judge so that a preliminary hearing may be held. Lee has not yet had a preliminary hearing because of the uncertainty of which court would hear his case.

FEMA expected to give borough more time today, source says.

$170,000 to put in a counterweighted system that allows fixtures to be lowered to the floor. A “dead-hung” system, which would require using ladders to access fixtures such as lights, would run about $90,000, and most board members voiced support for that option. The board also discussed maintenance of the artificial turf at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium, which could be cleaned and refurbished for about $3,450, board member Lynn Evans said. A vehicle that would allow the district to do better maintenance itself would run from $3,170 to $12,500, depending on the model.

State court will speed Selenski’s appeal By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – The state Superior Court has agreed to expedite an appeal made last week by Hugo Selenski that prosecutors say is meant to delay a double-murder trial scheduled to start next month. The appellate court, in a one-page order, granted a request by prosecutors to expedite the appeal and ordered attorneys to file court papers by Aug. 27 so a hearing may be scheduled in Selenski’s case. “By filing the appeal, (Selenski) is attempting to obtain a delay of trial that he could not obtain by other means,” prosecutors wrote in their request. “The commonwealth avers that this delay is the primary purpose motivating the present appeal.” Selenski, 38, could face the death penalty if convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkow-


ski, both of whom were 37 when they died. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. He is tentatively scheduled to stand trial beginning Sept.

10. Selenski’s attorneys on Aug. 7 filed an appeal to the Superior Court stating Judge Fred Pierantoni erred when he denied a request to dismiss the charges against Selenski because Selenski was previously prosecuted on a different offense. Prosecutors tried to have the appeal stopped days later, saying it was frivolous and a tactic to delay Selenski’s trial. Prosecutors also said defense attorneys needed to ask Pierantoni’s permission to appeal his decision. Pierantoni responded saying he was

confident of the “correctness of our legal determination” and that he could not determine if the appeal was frivolous. Therefore, the appeal would go forward. Prosecutors filed an application to expedite the appeal Monday. Prosecutors, in their filing, said the current appeal could delay the trial for a “significant further period of time” and that prosecutors might be hampered by fading witness memories. Prosecutors say several witnesses are elderly and in failing health and Selenski’s one-time co-defendant, Paul Weakley, has been “attacked three times in prison, and stabbed in the neck and stomach, as a result of his cooperation” in the case. If the appeal were expedited, prosecutors wrote, it would serve the interests of justice by “allowing the commonwealth to commence the trial in a more prompt manner.”

WEST PITTSTON – Federal officials are expected to inform borough officials today that the agency is extending the deadline for the borough to update its flood plain management plan. At least one official with the Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to meet with local officials today, at which time the announcement will be made, according to federal government sources. FEMA in June threatened to place the borough on probationary status in the National Flood Insurance Program on Oct. 1 if the borough did not make adequate progress to correct flood plain management violations and program deficiencies. The extension is expected to give West Pittston until Dec. 21 to update its plan. The deficiencies included the borough’s failure to show flood victims were complying with FEMA requirements, such as elevating their utilities above the flood plain, after September 2011 flooding that devastated a large portion of the municipality. Probationary status could force flood insurance policyholders to pay a $50 premium surcharge. Borough Council President Barry Hosier said the deadline extension was “fantastic” news. “It’s still tight, but we will work with that. We’re doing everything we possibly can. We’ve jumped through hoops, we’re doing everything they asked us for,” Hosier said. The news came as somewhat of a welcome relief after FEMA issued a press release on Friday that Hosier called “very upsetting.” The media release summed up West Pittston’s situation with flood plain violations and the borough’s potential placement on probationary status, prompting local officials to complain the release was unnecessary and See W.

Dragons not fired up A plan to spin off Riverfest dragon boat races gets too little support. By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – The dragon boat race for September is sunk. According to race organizers, the event planned for Sept. 8-9 in the Susquehanna River has been canceled and will be res-

cheduled for Riverfest 2013 in June. “The dragon boat race could become a much bigger event by being a part of Riverfest,” said John Maday, a volunteer with the annual event. “Right now, Riverfest will be held next June 21-22-23. The dragon boats will race on Sunday.” Dragon boat racing has been a part of Riverfest the last two years, but organizers decided to try to make it a separate event in the fall. Some boats already had

been sponsored by local businesses, and Maday said most of them are in agreement with moving the event to next year. “We did end up with some sponsorships not coming in, and some people thought it would be best to put it off until next year,” Maday said. “Some companies told us September is not the best time to be adding events to their budgets.” The dragon boat races during See DRAGON, Page 4A

According to court papers, on May 6, 2011, police were called to an Airy Street apartment for an unconscious woman bleeding from a wound on her neck. Police said Tabitha Tirado was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township for treatment of her injuries. Police later learned that Vega cuted the case. According to court papers, police were called to a wooded area behind the West Side Mall in Edwardsville just before 4:30 p.m. Aug. 16, 2011, for the report of a stabbing. When police arrived, Daniel Holtslander said Carrier began to fight with him over $100. He said he grabbed Carrier by the backpack, but Carrier got away. When Holtslander tried to grab Carrier again, he noticed his forearm was bleeding and Carrier was holding a knife. Holtslander was taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for treatment.

tical steps to avoid probation must be taken so that residents can have certainty in knowing that their flood insurance rates won’t increase dramatically in the new year,” Casey said. Hosier said the borough’s new code enforcement officer, William O’Donnell, is scheduled to meet sometime today with FEMA Mitigation Planner Nicole Lick so she can bring him up to speed on compliance issues. Council hired O’Donnell a week ago, the same night council terminated the employment of Dominic Pepe as code enforcement officer. Several residents who obtained permits for repairing their homes after flooding had criticized Pepe for signing off on permits even though work didn’t necessarily meet FEMA requirements. That was one of the issues that landed the borough in hot water with FEMA and a factor in the borough’s potential placement on probationary status in the National Flood Insurance Program.

stated nothing new. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey defended the borough and criticized FEMA in his own media announcement Friday, saying the agency’s plan to put the borough on probationary status is “an unnecessary and counterproductive decision that won’t improve the area’s flood plan and could result in higher flood insurance rates for residents.” Casey on Friday said FEMA should work with the borough on a flood protection plan instead of “punishing” the community. On Monday, Casey said he was pleased to hear of the deadline extension. “Earlier this month, I asked FEMA to abandon its punitive approach towards West Pittston and begin to work cooperatively with the community, and I’m pleased that they’re moving in that direction,” Casey said in a written response.

Vega tried to leave the house, but Robles’ son subdued him until police arrived. Court papers say Tirado had to undergo surgery to repair the injuries from the stab wound that cut her jugular vein and punctured her trachea. Police said had the injuries not been treated as quickly as they had, the wound would have resulted in Tirado’s death.

WILKES-BARRE – A Hanover Township man facing several charges, including two from incidents in which shots were fired at two different residences, pleaded guilty Monday to related charges. David Angelo Toney, 20, of Norwood Avenue, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and one count each of receiving stolen property, criminal conspiracy to commit receiving stolen property, burglary and theft. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley said Toney will be sentenced on Oct. 19. He faces a maximum of 20 years on one of the charges of criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault. According to court papers, on Nov. 15, 2008, city police were called to a Regent Street, Wilkes-Barre, home for the report of shots fired. When police arrived, they spoke with Daniel Holtslander, who said he was home with his wife, two young sons, his step-daughter and another woman when they heard five or six gunshots outside. Police said one bullet went through a living room wall and a second through a window and then hit the ceiling. Police said Toney and Jerome Sharr were armed and

Sharr had argued with Holtslander’s step-daughter and her friend earlier that day. In a second Toney case, police said Toney was involved in an incident in which shots were fired at a South Empire Street, Wilkes-Barre, home on Dec. 14, 2010. Police said the resident of the home, Jerome Sharr, told them two shots were fired at his home and that Toney drove a vehicle while another man, Jason Dates, fired the gun after Sharr argued with Toney about a woman. In the other incidents, police said that on Sept. 12, 2010, Toney took cameras and jewelry from a Fairview Township house, and on Sept. 21, 2010, he stole jewelry, guns and a television from a Lake Township house. Toney is serving a one-year federal prison sentence relating to the theft of 12 guns. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, a federal grand jury indicted Toney and Sharr, of Wilkes-Barre, in June 2011 and they were charged with the theft of weapons from American Sport Shooting in Monroe County. A judge also ordered Toney to serve three years of supervised release after his prison sentence. Sharr was previously sentenced to two years in prison for his role in the break-in at the gun shop.

Gov. pushes speedy permits


ritics say a new order from Gov. Tom Corbett will pressure state employees to approve environmental permits faster, including Marcellus Shale gas wells and projects that involve sensitive wetlands or ecosystems. The order, signed on July 24, is described as a “Permit Decision Guarantee” for the Department of Environmental Protection. George Jugovic Jr., a former top DEP employee who is currently president of the environmental group PennFuture, says the new plan will put public health and safety at risk. DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday said the new order won’t sacrifice environmental protection.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — A deadly shootout erupted Monday near the Texas A&M University campus when a man being brought an eviction notice opened fire on a Texas law enforcement officer, leaving three people dead, including the officer and the gunman. Police say Thomas Alton Caffall, 35, opened fire on Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann just after noon as the lawman brought an eviction notice. Both men were later pronounced dead at a hospital. Police identified Chris Northcliff, 43, as the third person killed in the shootings at an off-campus home not far from the university’s football stadium. Three other law enforcement officers and a 55-year-old woman were wounded, College Station Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum said. Caffall’s sister said Monday night the family was “shocked” by the violence. Officers responding Monday after-

noon to reports of an officer down saw Bachmann wounded on the ground in the front yard, then got into what McCollum described as an extended shootout with Caffall, who eventually was shot. Police spokeswoman Rhonda Seaton said Northcliff was outside the home when he was shot, as was the wounded woman, whose name had not been released by Monday evening. The woman was hospitalized in serious condition following surgery.

One of the injured officers, Justin Oehlkee, was treated for a gunshot wound in the calf and was in stable condition, Seaton said. Two other officers — Brad Smith and Phil Dorsett, were treated for “shrapnel injuries” and released, Seaton said. Police declined to speculate on a motive for the gunfire. The shootings prompted Texas A&M to issue an emergency alert warning students and residents to stay away from the area. Most of the university’s 50,000 students were not on the campus about 90 miles northwest of Houston because the fall semester doesn’t start until Aug. 27, university spokeswoman Sherylon Carroll said. Bachmann, 41, worked more than 19 years in law enforcement, according to the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education. He had been a constable since January 2011, after winning election to the post the prior November.

Helen Gurley Brown dies

Helen Gurley Brown, the longtime editor of Cosmopolitan magazine who invited millions of women to join the sexual revolution, has died. She was 90. Brown died Monday at a hospital in New York after a brief hospitalization, Hearst CEO Frank A. Bennack, Jr. said in a statement. “Sex and the Single Girl,” her grabbag book of advice, opinion, and anecdote on why being single shouldn’t mean being sexless, made a celebrity of the advertising copywriter in 1962. Three years later, she was hired by Hearst Magazines to turn around Cosmopolitan and it became her bully pulpit for the next 32 years. She put big-haired, deep-cleavaged beauties photographed by Francesco Scavullo on the magazine’s cover, behind teaser titles like “Nothing Fails Like Sex-cess — Facts About Our Real Lovemaking Needs.” EBENSBURG, PA.

WWI widow benefits OK’d

A 110-year-old Pennsylvania widow is getting a benefits boost because of her husband’s World War I service. Family members say Alda Collins is now getting about $1,000 a month to assist with her stay at a nursing home near Ebensburg. She had been getting $36 a month. Her husband, William, served in the Army in World War I. He died in 1976 at age 81. The family had been asking the Veterans Administration for the benefits adjustment since 2008. Her son said Collins lived by herself in a trailer until she was 106. WASHINGTON

Fast and Furious suit filed

The GOP-run House on Monday asked a federal court to enforce a subpoena against Attorney General Eric Holder, demanding he produce records on a bungled gun-tracking operation known as Operation Fast and Furious. The lawsuit asked the court to reject a claim by President Barack Obama asserting executive privilege. The failure of Holder and House Republicans to work out a deal on the documents led to votes in June that held the attorney general in civil and criminal contempt of Congress. The civil contempt resolution led to Monday’s suit. Holder refused requests to hand over documents that could explain why the Justice Department initially denied in February 2011 that a risky tactic was used to allow firearms to “walk” from Arizona to Mexico. Federal agents lost track of many of the guns. The operation identified more than 2,000 illicitly purchased weapons, and some 1,400 of them have yet to be recovered. The department failed to acknowledge its incorrect statement for 10 months.

Obama, Biden take new tack By STEVE PEOPLES and KEN THOMAS Associated Press

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — President Barack Obama and Joe Biden moved quickly Monday to link GOP rivals Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to House Republicans who Democrats blame for causing gridlock in Washington and pressing policies to protect the wealthy. Campaigning in Iowa, Obama accused Ryan of blocking a congressional farm bill, seeking to link Romney by extension to a Washington stalemate that is denying Midwestern farmers the resources they need to cope with a crippling drought. “If you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities,” Oba-

GOP VP candidate Rep. Paul Ryan makes an appearance Monday at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.

ma said. “We’ve got to put politics aside when it comes to doing the right thing for rural America and for Iowa.” Biden sought to break through Romney’s efforts to put some distance between his proposals and Ryan’s austere budget plans, which Democrats believe could give them an

opening with seniors fearful of his proposed overhaul of Medicare. “Let’s cut through all of this,” Biden said during a rally in North Carolina. “They are running on what the Republican Congress has been promoting for the past four years.” The Democratic effort aimed to snag some of the

excitement surrounding the Republican ticket since Romney named Ryan as his running mate on Saturday. Ryan made his first solo campaign appearance in Iowa on Monday, while Romney campaigned in Florida. Romney briefly defended his new running mate’s budget proposals for Medicare, telling Florida voters that the Republican ticket wants to “make sure that we preserve and protect Medicare.” “He’s come up with ideas that are very different than the president’s,” Romney said of Ryan. “The president’s idea, for example, for Medicare, was to cut it by $700 billion. That’s not the right answer.” Ryan was greeted by raucous supporters, and a few hecklers, during a stop at the Iowa State Fair.


Purportedly a Syrian pilot is being interrogated Monday by a rebel officer.

Syrian rebels claim gov’t fighter is shot down Syria admits pilot bailed out but blamed a malfunction for the loss. By BRIAN MURPHY Associated Press

BEIRUT — Syrian rebels circulated dramatic video Monday of what they claimed was the downing of a warplane and armed men later holding the captured pilot who ejected as the MiG fighter was engulfed by flames. Syria acknowledged a pilot bailed out of a disabled plane but blamed the crash on a technical malfunction. The authenticity of the images or the claims could not be independently verified. If the rebels did bring down their first aircraft, that could signal a significant jump in their firepower and give opposition forces their most high-profile military captive. But wider questions remain even if the rebel reports are confirmed, including whether this could be just a one-time blow against expanding air offensives by the forces of Bashar Assad’s regime. Just days ago, protesters across Syria pleaded for the rebels’ main backers — including Turkey and Gulf states — to send anti-aircraft weapons for outgunned fighters. Assad’s military has significantly stepped up aerial attacks in recent weeks. Strafing from warplanes and close-range missile strikes from helicopter gunships have pushed back rebels in key fronts such as Aleppo, the country’s largest city and the scene of fierce attacks to dislodge rebel positions. The relentless bloodshed — including alleged massacres by pro-regime mobs and retaliation killings by rebels — has already claimed more than 20,000 lives, activists say, and will be further examined in a report expected Wednesday by the U.N. Human Rights Council’s independent commission probing abuses in Syria. In another crack in Assad’s diplomatic corps, a Syrian diplomat who worked with the U.N. rights council in Geneva said he left his post to join the opposition. A spokesman for the council, Rolando Gomez, identified the Syrian as Danny alBaaj and described him as a junior member of his country’s U.N. mission. Syria is not a member of the 47-nation council, but al-Baaj worked with it as part of his duties. The claims of bringing down the warplane and capturing the pilot, meanwhile, are likely to become a key propaganda tool to rally rebel fighters. Activists released a video which they say showed a government Soviet-made MiG warplane catching fire after it was hit by ground fire over Deir el-Zour province, an area near the Iraqi border where the opposition has strongholds. Hours later, another video shown on the pan-Arab network Al-Arabiya purported to show the captured pilot surrounded by armed rebels. “Introduce yourself,” says another speaker with his back to the camera. The alleged captive identified himself as Col. Rafik Mohammed Suleiman and says he was on a mission to attack a rebel-held area. “What do you tell the officers of the Assad army?” the speaker asks the man, whose beard and hair are flecked with gray. The man who identified himself as the pilot urges them to defect.

Man breaches security at JFK Airport after swimming ashore By JOHN VALENTI Newsday

NEW YORK -- The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey has increased police presence at John F. Kennedy International Airport, including patrols by marine units, after an apparent breach of its $100 million state-of-the-art anti-terrorism security Saturday -- by a man who said he swam ashore after his personal water craft

broke down in Jamaica Bay. A Queens man, identified as Daniel Castillo, 32, was charged with criminal trespass in the incident, according to an official source with knowledge of the incident. The official said it is believed that, after his personal watercraft broke down, Castillo swam ashore, climbed an 8-foot security fence, crossed two runways -- 4R-22L and 4L-22R -- and then entered air-

port Terminal 3, where an airport worker alerted authorities. The incident was reported at 6:30 p.m., the source said. The Perimeter Intrusion Detection System, designed by Raytheon, includes the security fencing, motion detectors and closed-circuit surveillance. A Port Authority spokesman, citing the ongoing investigation, said he could not comment on details of the case.

In a statement released Monday, the Port Authority said: "The Port Authority took immediate action to increase its 24/7 police presence with round the clock patrols of the facility’s perimeter and increased patrols by boat of the surrounding waterway. We have called for an expedited review of the incident and a complete investigation to determine how Raytheon’s perime-

ter intrusion detection system which exceeds federal requirements could be improved." A Transportation Security Administration official told Newsday that "as with any airport, the airport perimeter security system is the responsibility of that airport and its operator." The investigationwill be conducted by the Port Authority, the official said.

Trailer at nuke plant no hazard, feds say


SALEM TWP. -- Very low levels of radioactive contamination were found late last week on a dry fuel storage transfer trailer at the PPL Susquehanna nuclear power plant. Although detectable by sensitive instruments, the contamination does not exceed regulatory limits and does not pose a hazard to the public, said Neil Sheehan, public affairs director for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Region I. He said plant personnel were removing the contamination. “Nevertheless, NRC inspectors are continuing to follow up on the issue as the company develops more information on where the trailer has been,” Sheehan said. “This trailer has been loaned out to other nuclear power plants in the past.” Sheehan said PPL Susquehanna personnel were trying to trace back where the trailer has been in recent days. He said it has been loaned to the plant in Michigan Palisades. A report the NRC received from PPL noted that the radioactive cesium that was found on the trailer is not something that is characteristically produced at PPL’s plant near Berwick, Sheehan said. The two reactors at the Susquehanna plant continue to operate. Sheehan said that on Aug 7, PPL Susquehanna personnel were in the process of releasing the dry fuel storage transfer trailer from the Unit 1 reactor building rail bay and detected removable contamination on the trailer. PPL Susquehanna health physics personnel identified removable surface contamination on the transfer trailer. In addition, no loose surface alpha contamination was identified, Sheehan said. While the Susquehanna plant will get additional NRC scrutiny, Sheehan said the NRC does not feel the plant is unsafe. “The area around the trailer, located in the 101 bay, has been posted and controlled as a con-

PPL will conduct the annual test of all the sirens in its Susquehanna nuclear plant emergency notification system at 11 a.m. Thursday. Sirens will sound once for three minutes with a steady tone starting at 11 a.m. The public does not need to respond to this test. After the sirens sound, local Emergency Alert System radio and television stations will carry a message about the test.

taminated area,” Sheehan said. “Decontamination of the transfer trailer is in progress.” Joe Scopelliti, spokesman for PPL, said the matter is under investigation. “When we received the trailer back we surveyed it for radioactive material and found some low levels of contamination,” Scopelliti said. Scopelliti said the trailer was leased to Palisades Nuclear Plant in Michigan. Sheehan said that although the receipt of the transfer trailer was not identified as an incoming radioactive shipment to Susquehanna from its supplier, the event is immediately reportable to the NRC Operations Center in accordance with regulations. “The final delivery carrier and NRC Senior Resident Inspector have been notified.” he said. “The licensee will be notifying the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” In February, a series of operational incidents at PPL’s Luzerne County nuclear power plant over the last two years drew the attention of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The commission ranked the plant’s Unit 1 in the bottom four of 104 plants nationwide and ordered extra inspections through this year. The Susquehanna nuclear power plant’s Unit 1 generator is one of three ranked in Category 3. The only reactor that ranks lower is Browns Ferry Unit 1 near Athens, Ala., which is in the fourth category. There are no reactors ranked in the fifth and lowest category.

Warrior Run sees code success W H AT ’ S N E X T

WARRIOR RUN -- Greg Gulick, the borough’s recently appointed code enforcement officer, reported success in efforts to clean up borough properties and bring them up to code. He has issued 11 warning letters to property owners, and seven have complied, he told borough council Monday. The four remaining have been issued citations and the borough has been upheld in hearings on three of them. Gulick said he has been concentrating on the area near the borough building. “We’ve been successful in this part of town,” Gulick said. He also said he will move to other parts of the borough after his work in that area is finished. In other matters: • One resident suggested the

At present, the borough puts a lien on all properties with more than $500 in delinquent sewer bills. Auditor Karen Hazleton had brought up the problem of delinquent taxes at last month’s meeting. “It’s worthy of research and discussion,” Pyrah said.

According to the proposed charter, the office of tax collector would be phased out in six years; the office of controller phased out in four. Moskovitz said this would result in more efficiency in government spending. Commission member Fred Stuccio said the greatest obstacle to passage of the home rule charter would be lack of understanding by the voters. For this reason, business consultant Alan Baranski directed the commission to "think about the most appropriate and efficient way of disseminating information to Pittston residents in regard to this charter." "We need to get this right the first time," said Baranski, advising the commission to continue to review the document.

High-ranking pirate gets dozen life sentences By BROCK VERGAKIS Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. — A federal judge ordered a Somali pirate on Monday to serve a dozen life sentences in prison for his role in the hijacking of a German merchant vessel and a U.S. yacht, saying the hostage negotiator was lucky he wasn’t facing the death penalty. Mohammad Saaili Shibin is considered by U.S. authorities to be the highest-ranking pirate they have ever captured. Shibin had direct ties to those who finance pirate operations from ashore in largely lawless Somalia. Four Americans aboard the Quest were shot to death by pirates off the coast of Africa in 2011, and the crew on the other vessel was tortured to get a higher ransom in 2010. U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar told Shibin he was “very lucky” he wasn’t facing a death sentence, although no death penalty-eligible charges were brought against him. Prosecutors will seek the

death penalty against the three men charged with shooting the Americans. Eleven other men in the case who boarded the Quest have already pleaded guilty and been sentenced to life in prison. Shibin, who speaks several languages including English, declined to make any statements before he was sentenced. U.S. authorities are hoping the sentence will send a message to pirates to stay away from American-flagged ships. “I think this case explodes the myth, if still it exists out there, that pirates are some kind of romantic swashbuckling characters from Hollywood summer

movies. This case showed that pirates are brutal, greedy, reckless, desperate criminals who will kidnap, torture and ultimately kill hostages in pursuit of their financial greed,” U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said after sentencing. The yacht owners, Jean and Scott Adam of Marina del Rey, Calif., along with friends Bob Riggle and Phyllis Macay of Seattle, were the first U.S. citizens killed in a wave of pirate attacks that have plagued the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean despite a regular patrol of international warships. Negotiations with a U.S. Navy ship that was

shadowing the Quest were under way when a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at it and shots aboard the yacht rang out. By the time Navy SEALs scrambled onboard the boat, the Americans had already been shot. Shibin was convicted earlier this year of the 15 charges he faced, including piracy, kidnapping and hostage-taking. Of the 12 life sentences, 10 of them will run concurrently while two were ordered to serve consecutively. Shibin was also ordered to pay $5.4 million in restitution. Shibin attorney James Broccoletti said he will appeal the conviction.

Goodbye, Yanks; Hello, Porcupines?


HE PORCUPINES? Ouch! Of the six nicknames contending to appear on the minor league baseball apparel and merchandise of the erstwhile Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees, this one strikes us as the least fanfriendly if for no other reason than mascots should be huggable. Can you picture small children racing through the stands to exchange high-fives with an herbivore known as a “quill pig”? Besides, sports headline writers in cities with opposing ball clubs will have a field day each time those teams “stick it” to the porcupines. (Those varmints.) Then again, maybe we’re overanalyzing this off-beat contest intended only to foster fan involvement and have fun. Remember fun? Plenty of the nation’s minor league franchises gave the goahead signal to whimsy when adopting names such as the Las Vegas 51s, the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the Albuquerque Isotopes and the Savannah Sand Gnats. Closer to home, consider the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Their choices seem to have been guided more by promotional possibilities than

Ryan lends vision to Romney bid


EP. PAUL RYAN, RWis., is Mitt Romney’s Al Gore, a policy wonk who brings legislative experience and seriousness of purpose to the ticket. He is, in other words, no Sarah Palin. But Ryan is also the symbol of something more: a commitment to a particularly conservative vision of a smaller federal government, a scaled-back safety net and a lower tax burden. By choosing Ryan, Romney answered the critics (particularly on the right) who questioned whether his campaign had a vision for the future. If there were voters who harbored any doubt about the magnitude of the choice they face in November, they should no longer. Although Romney has taken positions on an array of issues, the race so far has largely been a backward-looking and bile-spewing affair. The media deserve some of the blame for that, but so do the campaigns and their “super PAC” allies. In choosing Ryan, Romney might hope to shift the campaign from personal attacks to debates about fiscal EDITORIAL BOARD

policy. That’s quixotic, but it would be a welcome change. Ryan’s presence on the ticket helps Ryan sharpen the contrast between President Obama’s so-called “balanced” approach, which combines tax hikes and spending restraints, and Romney’s ambition to rein in entitlements and discretionary programs while cutting taxes in the hope of spurring growth. Indeed, Ryan makes the GOP ticket more stubbornly ideological and less pragmatic. The other suggestion Romney makes by picking Ryan is that the Republican strategy will turn less on attracting independents than turning out loyalists. The brainy Ryan should help Romney shore up his conservative base and motivate tea party voters. That’s because Romney’s pick says the race isn’t about governing, it’s about changing government.

Writer misses the days of intelligent campaigns


ig election years used to be among my favorite times. Following the multiple campaigns – with back-and-forth, intelligent debate – made the process a happy time for me. No more. All you hear being tossed around are lies, innuendos, half truths and slime. On the weekend of July 23, the Kantar Campaign Media Analysis Group reported that approximately 14,000 presidential advertisements had aired. Of all these ads, only two were positive: both in Spanish. If you believe any of the crap being tossed, you probably shouldn’t vote for anybody. Yes, big money has ruined our election process. As U.S. Sen. John McCain recently commented, “big PACs are rendering the political parties irrelevant.” Thank goodness for my remote. I will not have to watch. Peter Klein Dallas

Property tax reform bill called fiscally reckless


s the Pennsylvania General Assembly continues to grapple with the elusive decades-old issue of property tax reform, one proposal under consideration is more political theater than substance. To make matters worse, proponents are using threats and scare tactics to generate support. The “Property Tax Independence Act,” which is state House Bill 1776 and Senate Bill 1400, is ill conceived and fiscally irresponsible. Proponents say it will eliminate school property taxes and replace them by raising the personal income tax by 1 percent to 4.07 percent and increasing the sales and use tax rate to 7 percent. The plan also expands the goods and services that are subject to the tax. What proponents fail to mention is that the plan will not eliminate all school property taxes. The bill specifically calls for retaining property tax to pay for a school’s debt service. Additionally, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, the plan will create at least a $3 billion funding gap between what it will actually raise and what school districts need to eliminate property taxes.

Cargo airport will harm, not help, area economy


he decision by the Schuylkill County Zoning Hearing Board to grant a special exception for a proposed cargo airport in East Union Township indicates that certain Northeastern Pennsylvania developers and community leaders still don’t understand that unsustainable, environmentally destructive development will not bring prosperity to the area. The old anthracite region remains tied to the fallacy that massive infrastructure growth is equivalent to progress. Conservationists and economic gurus such as Richard Florida assert that historic preservation, open space conservation, naturebased recreation and an educated workforce are the keys to securing high-paying jobs and a high quality of life. Twelve years ago, Mr. Florida, then of Carnegie Mellon University, articulated this vision to the economic development community at a presentation to the Northeast Pennsylvania Great Valley Technology Alliance. Unfortunately, his hosts, including CANDO Inc., seemingly chose to ignore his advice and utilized the new Keystone Opportunity Zone program to subsidize sprawling warehouse parks offering temporary, low-wage jobs. Despite explosive growth, and because of a massive influx of low-skilled job seekers, Hazleton’s unemployment rate is now 14.9 percent, far above regional, state and national averages. Gladstone Partners’ airport proposal pretends to be something new and different because products made and consumed elsewhere will come here by air (though they would leave by trucks on an inadequate highway system). The project entails the destruction of thousands of acres of pristine forest. About 970 acres of that site consists of globally unique ridge-top dwarf tree forest (7.9 percent of the total in Schuylkill County).


In 2002, Congress authorized the Environmental Protection Agency to establish the Mid-Atlantic Highlands Program to preserve these ecosystems and promote economic development based on “the unique skills and resources within the region that cannot be duplicated elsewhere – its people, history, cultural heritage, institutions and scenic beauty.” This would redirect local economies from exploitation to “natural resource restoration industries, value-added natural resource products and amenity-based development.” The information in the previous paragraph is actually contained in an Environmental Inventory Report prepared for Gladstone Partners by a Maryland consultant and made part of the record for the zoning hearing board in this decision. The goals and objectives of the Mid-Atlantic Highlands Program, as outlined by Gladstone’s environmental consultant, were thus available to the board, in addition to Schuylkill County’s own comprehensive plan that designates this site for “parks, permanent open space and preserved areas.” How can the board disregard this report, and its very own comprehensive plan, by approving a cargo airport/ industrial use on this site? Because our region always has sacrificed environmental preservation and quality for economic “progress.” Over a half century of following the resource exploitation paradigm has resulted in the problems we face today: rising crime, failing schools, social turmoil and the mass exodus of educated young people. More of the same ideas will only bring more of the same, at best. Drew Magill Sugarloaf Township

Another summer goes swimmingly in Kingston


thank the management and staff at the Kingston pool for another great season. I commend the lifeguards, “snackies” (snack bar workers) and support staff for an outstanding job. The Kingston pool is one of the finest recreational facilities in the area. It’s a great place to cool off on a hot, muggy summer day, to practice swimming and diving skills, and to socialize with friends and neighbors. I really enjoy the evening “free swims,” at which you get to swim in the deep end of the pool to practice water skills or to get up a game of “sharks and minnows.” I also commend the staff members for their kindness and sensitivity in the way they accommodate special-needs children and adults, in helping them to enjoy the pool and to have a memorable summer. God bless you! Curt Piazza Kingston








Judge keeps gag order in Colo. shooting case By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press

DENVER — The judge in the deadly Colorado theater shooting case refused Monday to lift a gag order that prevents the University of Colorado from releasing information about former graduate student and suspect James Holmes. Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester also ruled he would release some court documents in the case. James Holmes, a former Ph.D. student at the university, is accused of going on a shooting rampage on July 20 at the midnight showing of the new Batman movie in suburban Denver, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. Members of the public will have access to a list of documents filed, as well as some submitted by attorneys. Some key documents, including the arrest affidavit that outlines law enforcement’s case against Holmes, will remain sealed. Documents being released Monday were routine docu-

ments that are standard in criminal cases that include allowing defense attorneys to inspect the crime scene. In one document, however, defense attorney Daniel King argued Holmes be allowed to sit with his attorneys at the defense table, and not in the jury box where Holmes sat during his initial appearance July 23. King said the deputies placed him there out of concerns for Holmes’ safety “due to the apparent presence, statements, and behavior of individuals in the audience of the courtroom.” King argued that seating Holmes away from the defense table gave the impression that Holmes was expressing threats or exhibiting dangerous behavior, threatening a fair trial. That request was granted. During the initial hearing three days after the shooting, at least two men stared at Holmes during the hearing, which concluded without incident. Sylvester said the case remains under investigation and releasing that information would harm Holmes’ right to a fair trial and be contrary to public interest.

In his order on the University of Colorado, he said, he “will not jeopardize the integrity of the process and the truth-seeking functions” of the courts by authorizing the premature release of records. Last week, Holmes’ lawyers said he suffers from a mental illness but didn’t disclose any details about his condition. Defense attorney Daniel King said Holmes sought out university psychiatrist Lynne Fenton for help weeks before the shooting. A hearing is scheduled for Thursday to establish they had a doctor-patient relationship. Sylvester said he may reconsider his order about what information the university can release after that issue is settled. Sylvester he considered arguments by prosecutors and defense attorneys that hundreds of witnesses and victims have not been interviewed during “the critical early stages of the investigation.” “It is certainly in the public’s interest that law enforcement officials conduct a complete investigation thoroughly and efficiently,” Sylvester wrote.

Steve Zansberg, the attorney representing a consortium of 21 media organizations, including The Associated Press, said in a prepared statement that Sylvester’s partial release of documents brings “much needed transparency to this judicial proceeding.” But he added: “We are disappointed that the affidavits of probable cause remain under seal at this time, but are hopeful that the Court will revisit that issue sometime in the not too distant future.” Documents that will be released under Sylvester’s order include Holmes’ defense attorney’s request that their own experts be present for scientific testing of evidence. In documents, the evidence to be tested includes guns, bullets, shell casings and biological samples, which can include DNA, blood, or other bodily fluids. Police said Holmes methodically stockpiled guns, ammunition and material for explosives for months and that he had received shipments at both the university and his nearby apartment.

S&P puts W-B Charge involves pilfering of documents rating on watch By STEVE MOCARSKY

WILKES-BARRE – Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services on Monday put Wilkes-Barre’s Arated credit rating on a “credit watch” for a possible downgrade. S&P pointed to cash flow problems that could impact the city’s ability to repay $3 million in tax anticipation notes. Those problems stem from difficulties collecting earned income tax. S&P analyst Hilary Sutton said in a statement that the repayment could further exacerbate the city’s already weak liquidity, which could also worsen if its $12.2 million in variable-rate debt accelerates. “The CreditWatch placement reflects our view of new information provided by the city that indicates a weak liquidity position, which we view as a significant credit risk … ,” Sutton said. Municipalities and school districts across the state that selected the Centax Group as a tax collector have seen earned income tax collections falter this year as the agency has struggled to implement a new state-mandated earned income tax collection system to begin this year. WilkesBarre is short by about $2.5 million so far this year, S&P said. For weeks the Luzerne County Tax Collection Committee and the Centax Group/Don Wilkinson Agency have been squabbling over why funds have not been properly distributed. That company has told tax collection committee solicitor Jeff Malak that turnover, computer glitches and other issues have led to the problems, but they were being addressed and rectified. The delegates will meet Aug. 22 and an agenda item is going to be Centax’s contract and whether it should be voided. The city already received a two-month extension from PNC Bank to repay $3 million in tax anticipation notes that were set to mature on Oct. 31, S&P said. Wilkes-Barre had a budget of nearly $45 million in fiscal year 2012. Mayor Tom Leighton could not immediately be reached for comment Monday night. Reuters contributed to this report.

TRUCK Continued from Page 1A

patrons at Liam’s Place, a tavern Loughnane owns on North Washington Street, refused to cooperate in providing Loughnane’s cellphone number to police Thursday night. Other reasons police provided in the affidavit for taking the truck without a warrant was the lateness of the hour, it was not known by police if anyone had access to the vehicle and keys were found in a toolbox in the truck’s bed, according to the affidavit. “There were reasons why,” Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said about impounding the truck without a warrant. “We researched it whether or not it was permitted. We found that it would be based on the facts of this investigation.” Salavantis said it would be premature to release more information due to the ongoing investigation. The affidavit alleges McCallick’s boyfriend, John Schenck, told police they were arguing when she ran out of their apartment at 199 Hazle Ave. early in the morning of July 24. Schenck told police he was yelling from a second-floor window at McCallick to get off the road when he saw a vehicle speeding up Hazle Avenue and striking McCallick, the affidavit states. McCallick died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Schenck described the vehicle as having a high clearance, a loud diesel engine and chrome on the exterior. Police allege in the affidavit that Schenck on Thursday night identified the Ford when it was parked at Loughnane’s residence. Loughnane is represented by attorney Peter Paul Olszewski Jr., who couldn’t be reached for comment on Monday. When the truck was impounded, attorney Peter Moses was acting as a liaison between Loughnane and police. No one answered the door at Loughnane’s residence on Monday. A Facebook posting on Friday indicated Loughnane was vacationing at Lake Ontario, Canada, for two weeks and left on Aug. 6, a day before police released a picture of a “vehicle of interest” that was taken by a surveillance camera a few minutes before McCallick was struck. Loughnane’s Facebook page has since been taken down. Moses said Monday morning he understood Loughnane was in Iowa when police impounded the Ford. No charges have been filed.

Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi meets with journalists at the Vatican on Monday to discuss the case against two Vatican employees. He said a three-judge panel will try the defendants.

2 Vatican workers face trial By FRANCES D’EMILIO Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — A Vatican judge on Monday ordered the pope’s butler and a fellow lay employee to stand trial for the alleged pilfering of documents from Pope Benedict XVI’s private apartment, in an embarrassing scandal that exposed power struggles and purported corruption at the Holy See’s highest levels. The indictment accused Paolo Gabriele, a butler arrested at the Vatican in May, of grand theft — a charge that could bring up to six years in jail, although the pope could pardon his oncetrusted aide after any conviction. Gabriele was also accused of taking a check for about

$125,000 made out to Benedict and donated by a Spanish Catholic university from the papal quarters. Gabriele’s lawyer, Carlo Fusco, told The Associated Press that the check had “by chance” ended up in a pile of the pope’s paperwork Gabriele had accumulated in his apartment. Fusco said his client “had never taken money or any other economic advantage” in his role as butler. While the Vatican had insisted throughout the investigation that Gabriele, a 45year-old married layman who lives with his family in Vatican City, was the only person under investigation, the indictment also orders trial for Claudio Sciarpelletti, a 48-year-old computer expert in the Secretariat of

State office charged with aiding and abetting the butler. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi told reporters that a three-judge panel would try the two defendants together. No date was set for the trial, which will be open to reporters, but Lombardi said it would start at the very earliest in late September, after the court returns from summer break. The Holy See has been on a defensive footing since documents alleging corruption and exposing power struggles began appearing in the Italian media in January. In May, the book “Sua Santita” (His Holiness) — by Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi — was published containing dozens of documents from the pope’s desk, includ-

ing letters written to him. Lombardi said Monday that magistrates had not taken on the wider, more serious issue revealed by the leaked documents — alleged corruption within the top ranks of the church. He said Vatican investigators would pursue other culprits, but sidestepped a question on whether a special panel of cardinals Benedict set up to deal with the scandal had made any inroads into the wider question of moral wrongdoing among those higher up. The indictment quoted Gabriele as telling investigators that he was “motivated by my deep faith and by the desire that in the church light is shed on everything.”

CASTLE Continued from Page 1A

The building was remodeled into an elementary/middle school, but not enough money was available to refurbish the auditorium. A community effort restored the auditorium as a performance center run by an all-volunteer board of directors, launching its first season last year with a concert by the band Chicago. But “there has been some confusion about where the center is located, so in an effort to clear up that confusion, as well as to engage present and past residents of Greater Hazleton who fondly refer to the school as the ‘Castle,’ we have decided to adopt the new name,” Center Interim Executive Director Steve Hahn said in a press release. Hahn announced the changes at a press conference Monday morning at the center. The board also launched the “Castle Club,” a four-tier membership program

and urging the state to drop or delay implementation of the new voter ID system because of those problems. “We did not set a high bar,” Ward said. “We asked if there was signage, are the forms available, does the person behind the counter know what they are talking about.” The report did not detail findings at specific centers, but Ward said volunteers went to the two Luzerne County facilities. “The Hanover Township one seemed to be fine,” she said. “There was signage in the reception area, the person behind the counter understood everything, and the forms were available.” The Hanover Township office didn’t make it clear the voter ID was free, “and that’s an important issue, because you’ve got to make sure the ID is free” to comply with the state constitution, Ward said. The Hazle Township office – just outside Hazleton’s southern boundary – was more problematic, Ward said, though all the problems may have stemmed from one aspect of the process: It takes two steps, at two different stations in the building, and those stations often do not share the same hours of operation. Come at the wrong time, and you can’t get the ID and may not get the right information. “You have to fill out an application at the driver license center,” Ward said. “Then you get the photo ID at the photo center. Typically the driver exam center hours tend to be fewer than the photo ID center, because if you are renewing your license online they send you a camera card that lets you go straight to the photo center.” The process also requires two forms, one is the standard state form for a non-driver photo ID, which costs $13.50, and that cost is clearly stated on that form. “To get the free ID you have to fill out an affidavit form that says ‘I’m 18, registered to vote and don’t have another acceptable form of ID,’ then you get it for free,” Ward said. So when the volunteer checking the Hazle Township Center found no affidavit, and the driver’s license center wasn’t open, the opportunity for confusion grew. “The person who gave (the volunteer) information may not have been the right one to talk to,” Ward said, suggesting a person in a driver’s license center may have been more knowledgeable about the free ID process, but wasn’t available. “We’re not faulting PennDOT workers,” Ward stressed, noting that getting through the process easily may simply be a case of showing up at the right time, when both centers are open and the right people are working. “But the Supreme Court has been pretty clear that states have to give IDs to individuals who don’t have acceptable forms of identification, or it’s a poll tax. And that is really a burden on the state, to see that it’s easy for a person to get an ID.”

Needing a QB for a start

Everything ran smoothly for the city, which answered the critics who said it couldn’t handle the crowds. By PAISLEY DODDS Associated Press

LONDON — For skeptics, the Olympics were deliciously doomed: London’s transport network would surely fail, Britain’s athletes would flop, rain would prevail and terrorists would strike. But then the sun came out after months of sodden skies, vehicles moved briskly, there were no attacks and British athletes reeled in a shocking 65 medals. On Monday, as international athletes and visitors poured out of London and the city’s 8 million residents resumed their normal lives, British officials hailed the 2012 Olympics as an unqualified success. Even the naysayers predicting doom and gloom had to eat their words. “I was moaning like everyone else before the games, thinking the roads would be packed and nothing would work,” said London shopkeeper Yvette Tracton, 28. “But it’s been brilliant.” Celebrations kicked off around the country as athletes returned home to cheering crowds. Leeds gave a special reception to three medalists, including triathlon gold and bronze-winning brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee. “It’s been a fantastic week in London, but to come home to Leeds is better than anything else,” said Alistair. His brother Jonathan described the thousands on hand for their hero’s welcome as “absolutely incredible,” saying he hadn’t realized how much their success galvanized supporters back home. Some 116,000 people were leaving Monday from Heathrow airport, London’s busiest hub, compared with 95,000 for a typical August day. Gatwick Airport was handling 70,000 departing passengers, 15 percent more than usual. Airports had come under scrutiny in the months leading up to the Olympics for lacking the staff to deal with backlogs of people and luggage, but Monday’s crowds moved through without a hitch. The exodus included thousands of athletes and Prime Minister David Cameron, who was heading on vacation to the Mediterranean.

Irish prepare for season with void behind center

Andrew Hendrix

By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer


SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Brian Kelly steps into his third season at Notre Dame looking for a quarterback who can run his spread offense. Sure sounds familiar. He needs someone to run the offense quickly and efficiently and not commit crucial turnovers — the Irish threw 17 interceptions a year ago — that can send any coach into a sideline tizzy. After back-to-back 8-5 seasons, Kelly has to find that guy. All other personnel decisions aside, nothing will be more important than how the quarterback plays with Notre Dame facing one of its most challenging

schedules in years. The four-quarterback derby that kicked off in the spring is down to two — Andrew Hendrix and Everett Golson — three weeks before the Irish go to Ireland to play Navy in their season opener on Sept. 1. Talented freshman Gunner Kiel is feeling his way and last year’s starter for most of the season, Tommy Rees, is suspended for the opener after a confrontation with police following an off-campus party. Rees, who’s been lending advice to the other three, is expected to be back in the mix after the first game. “Just going to go at it with all I got,” said Golson, a sophomore who ran the scout team last year but did not get on the field. “You got four See QB, Page 5B

Local pro lacrosse venture appears to hit rock bottom By JOE BARESS For The Times Leader

Showing the way through the darkness


e came to Penn State for his first head coaching job, facing circumstances no coach in his right mind would want. He has to follow a legend who remains an icon to many. He has to lead his team through the aftermath of a shockingly disgusting scandal. He has to replace key players who left after unprecedented NCAA sanctions, then try to sell his program to future players who can’t play in bowl games. But Bill O’Brien has the will and the wherewithal to do it. “Every time you run a drill here,” O’Brien said at Penn State’s media day last week, “every time you step on the field, our goal is to win. “We will never accept losing here at Penn State.” He should already be getting ready to accept an award for college coach of the year before even coaching a game. Just because of the way O’Brien has been able to instill a strong sense of stability in the middle of such chaos. When the NCAA opened the door for any of the Nittany Lions to leave without penalty following the Jerry Sandusky scandal, basically granting the whole team free agency, people envisioned a mass exodus. You know how many significant players actually left? Two, running back Silas Redd and wide receiver Justin Brown. The rest stayed at Penn State partly because of their loyalty to the school, but mostly because of the sales pitch O’Brien made to a team that knew him less than six months. “He’s the perfect coach for this situation,” Penn State tight end Kyle Carter said. “He’s a real fiery coach. We all respect him because he comes from the NFL.” O’Brien comes to replace Joe Paterno at Penn State fresh off five seasons on Bill Belichick’s coaching staff with the New England Patriots – where the motto is you don’t make excuses, you just make plays. So here is how O’Brien plans to deal with the defection of Brown and Redd, arguably the offense’s two biggest weapons. “In pro football,” the new Lions coach said, “isn’t it the same if a guy got injured and couldn’t play the season? Couldn’t that happen at a moment’s notice? Yes. The next man up on our team. “Let’s get going.” The Lions are going to have fun playing in O’Brien’s big-play offense because he is bringing along some of the offense that made the Patriots one of the NFL’s most potent teams. “There’ll be some things you see, situationally, red area, two-minute, four-minute,” O’Brien said of similar looks his Lions will have to his old Patriots teams. “Will that be very clean here? I don’t know.” He does know Tom Brady is no longer his quarterback and highcaliber NFL receivers aren’t sitting three-deep on his bench anymore. “I wouldn’t expect the 2007 New England Patriots,” O’Brien said. What we could expect is a disciplined and determined Penn State team that won’t complain about being unfairly victimized by the past or in the future, but plays its heart out for the present. “We’re very, very mindful of what happened here,” O’Brien said. “But in my opinion, it’s time to stop the dour attitude. We’ve got to be positive.” That starts with the new head coach, who may not have known how big of a mess he was getting into but sure seems like he knows how to get through it.

Philadelphia Phillies starter Cole Hamels delivers a pitch during the first inning of a game against Miami Marlins on Monday in Miami.

Phils’ Hamels throws 2nd straight shutout The Associated Press

MIAMI — Cole Hamels pitched his second consecutive shutout for the Philadelphia Phillies in a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday night. Hamels, coming off a fivehitter against Atlanta last Tuesday, scattered seven hits and struck out five in his sixth career shutout and 12th complete game. He walked only one and threw 85 of 113 pitches for strikes. It was the first time Hamels tossed two shutouts in a row. The previous Phillies pitcher to accomplish the feat was Cliff Lee, who had three straight in June 2011. Hamels (13-6) entered 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in three outings against the Marlins this season. But in his three August starts, he is 2-1 with a 0.72 ERA. He has struck out 20 and walked two. Padres 4, Braves 1

ATLANTA — Eric Stults combined with two relievers on a five-hitter, Chase Headley homered and drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves. Stults (3-2) gave up five hits and one run in 7 2-3 innings — his longest start in three years. While with the Dodgers, Stults beat the Giants 8-0 on May 9, 2009, his last complete game. The Padres, who had a sixgame winning streak snapped on Sunday, have won eight of 10 for the first time this season. Yonder Alonso had three hits and Chris Denorfia had two hits and scored two runs for

the Padres. Dodgers 5, Pirates 4

PITTSBURGH — Shane Victorino hit his 10th homer of the season and drove in three runs to lift the Los Angeles Dodgers to a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Matt Kemp added two hits for the Dodgers, who moved within 11⁄2 games of the Pirates for one of the two National League wild card spots. Aaron Harang (8-7) pitched six effective innings to snap a modest two-game losing streak while Kenley Jansen worked a perfect ninth for his 24th save. CHICAGO — Jeff Samardzija struck out a career hightying 11 in seven innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the Houston Astros. Darwin Barney and Alfonso Soriano hit two-run homers and Anthony Rizzo had four hits for the Cubs. Chicago won for just the second time in 13 games. The Astros have lost 25 of its last 27 road games. Rockies 9, Brewers 6

DENVER — DJ LeMahieu had a career-best four hits, Jeff Francis pitched effectively into the sixth inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers. Dexter Fowler, Eric Young Jr., Tyler Colvin and Chris Nelson each had two hits of Colorado’s 15 hits. Every position player for the Rockies had at least one hit as they ended a four-game home losing streak.

Swisher’s slam helps Yankees beat Rangers NEW YORK — Nick Swisher hit a grand slam off Ryan Dempster and drove in five runs, Derek Lowe closed with four shutout innings in his Yankees debut and New York beat the Texas Rangers 8-2 Monday night. David Phelps, starting in place of injured ace CC Sabathia, picked off two runners and pitched a career-high five innings for the win. In the opener of a four-game series between the teams with the AL’s best records, the Yankees powered their way to a sixth straight victory over Texas in the Bronx. Swisher’s second slam this season was his 200th career homer. Eric Chavez also homered off Dempster (1-1), the Rangers’ recent acquisition.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L Compiled by PAUL MONTELLA Aug. 13 1906 Jack Taylor of the Chicago Cubs was chased by Brooklyn in the third inning, ending a streak of 187 complete games and 15 relief games that Taylor had finished without relief help. 1910 The Brooklyn Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates played to an 8-8 tie. Each team had 38 at-bats, 13 hits, 12 assists, two errors, five strikeouts, three walks, one hit batsman and one passed ball. 1931 Tony Cuccinello of the Cincinnati Reds had six hits in six at-bats in the first game of a doubleheader at Boston. Cuccinello had a triple, two doubles and three singles to knock in five runs as the Reds won 17-3. 1948 Satchel Paige, 42, pitched his first major league complete game against the Chicago White Sox. Paige gave up five hits en route to 5-0 Cleveland victory. 1969 Jim Palmer of the Orioles, plagued by arm trouble the year before, threw an 8-0 no-hitter against the Oakland A’s in Baltimore. 1978 The Baltimore Orioles benefited from the rain-out rule. 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. 1979 St. Louis’ Lou Brock reached the 3,000-hit plateau with an infield hit off Chicago Cubs pitcher Dennis Lamp. St. Louis won the game 3-2. 2004 J.T. Snow of the Giants hit three home runs, had four RBIs, and scored five runs to power San Francisco to a 16-6 rout of Philadelphia. 2004 Kansas City rookies Abraham Nunez and John Buck both hit grand slams to lead the Royals past the Oakland Athletics 10-3. It was the first time in club history the Royals have hit two grand slams in one game — which also ties a major league record. Buck and Nunez were the first rookie teammates to hit grand slams in the same game since the rookie rule went into effect in 1957. 2005 New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera blew his first save since April 6 in a 7-5 win over Texas. Rivera had converted a career-best 31 consecutive saves before allowing Kevin Mench’s two-run, game-tying single in the ninth. 2006 Travis Hafner tied Don Mattingly’s single-season grand slam record with his sixth of the year as Cleveland routed Kansas City 13-0. 2009 Jonny Gomes homered in his first three at-bats of Cincinnati’s 7-0 victory over Washington. Gomes hit two-run homers in the second and fourth innings and added a solo shot in the sixth before striking out in the eighth. It was the second three-homer game of his career. 2010 Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey threw a 1-0 one-hitter, allowing a sixth-inning single to pitcher Cole Hamels, and the Mets shut out the Phillies once again. The Mets blanked the high-scoring Phillies for the fourth straight time at Citi Field. Today’s birthdays: Scott Elbert 27; Boone Logan 28; Dallas Braden 29; Will Ohman 35.

Russo helps SWB Yanks top Syracuse Times Leader Staff

SYRACUSE – Scoring runs has been at a premium for both the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees and the Syracuse Chiefs over the past two days. This wasn’t the case for the Yankees in Monday night’s series finale as Kevin Russo’s basesclearing double in the eighth led Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over Syracuse 6-4 at Alliance Bank Stadium. The Yankees got on the board in the top half of the second when Syracuse starter John Lannan issued a basesloaded walk to Ramiro Pena. Brandon Laird made the trot in from third, making it a 1-0 ballYANKEES game after singling earlier in the inning. Syracuse’s CHIEFS Sandy Leon sent his first home run of the season over the leftcenter field wall off of Mike O’Connor, tying the game at 1-1 in the fifth inning. It was the first run allowed by O’Connor in131⁄3 previous innings against the Chiefs. Pena picked up his second RBI of the night, the difference being this time he actually had to make contact to do it. With runners on the corners and one out in the inning, Pena sent a single to right-center, allowing Melky Mesa to score from third for a 2-1 advantage. Later in the inning, Corban Joseph brought Darnell McDonald home from second with a single to center, extending the Yankees’ lead to 3-1. The Chiefs had an excellent chance to tie or take the lead as they loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom half of the inning. But Cory Wade came in and ended the inning on a groundout, preserving the Yankees’ lead heading into the eighth inning. Russo crushed a three-RBI double to the left field wall in the eighth, putting the game out of reach at 6-1. Russo’s bases-clearing double proved to be huge as Jim Negrych brought the Chiefs to within 6-4 with a three-run blast over the left-center field wall. However, Wade induced Eury Perez to bounce out to short, ending the ballgame. O’Connor was magnificent for the Yankees in a no decision effort. The left-hander allowed just one run on five hits, while striking out four and walking one. Preston Claiborne picked up the win for the Yankees, going 11⁄3 innings, allowing just two hits and striking out one. Lannan suffered the loss for the Chiefs. He allowed three runs on three hits, while walking four and striking out three. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees now head to the Nation’s smallest state for a five game, four-day series against the Pawtucket Red Sox at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island starting today. It will be a series with playoff implications on the line as the PawSox are within striking distance of the Yankees as the International League regular season winds down. Billy Buckner (4-6, 41.16) gets the nod for the Red Sox, while fellow right-hander John Maine (5-4, 5.56) heads to the hill for the Yankees. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.

VH1 dumps Johnson’s reality show Confrontation with his wife, who was also to be part of series, is the reason for the cancellation. By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo passes against the Oakland Raiders during the first half of an NFL preseason game in Oakland, Calif., Monday.

DAVIE, Fla. — For Chad Johnson, a weekend confrontation with his wife has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment. VH1 pulled from its schedule the reality series “Ev and Ocho,” starring newlyweds Johnson — formerly known as Chad Ochocinco — and Evelyn Lozada. The network announced the move Monday, citing “the seriousness of the allegations” against Johnson, and said it had no plans to air the show. The Dolphins terminated Johnson’s contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic bat-

tery case involving Lozada, who is on the reality TV show “Basketball Wives.” “Ev and Ocho” was conceived as a spinoff and had been slated to debut Sept. 3. Johnson The Dolphins’ decision to release Johnson left coach Joe Philbin with a dearth of experience at receiver and a potential backlash in the locker room. Philbin decided Johnson’s knack for outlandish antics were a detriment that outweighed potential contributions from the six-time Pro Bowl receiver. “It wasn’t about one specific thing. It just wasn’t going to work,” Philbin said. “It didn’t feel like to me that this fit was going to be right for us as an organization, or for Chad. It was time to move on. It wasn’t done to send a message. It was done because it just didn’t feel

right.” Several players came to Johnson’s defense, saying he was a good teammate and friend during his two months with the Dolphins (No. 27 in the AP Pro32). Linebacker Karlos Dansby said he was upset about the team’s handling of the matter because he felt Johnson deserved another chance. Safety Reshad Jones agreed the decision to let Johnson go seemed hasty. “It was shocking to see he was going to be released a day after the incident,” Jones said. “It is pretty disappointing. But that was up to the coaching staff.” Philbin, a first-year head coach, said he wasn’t worried about losing the locker room. But he did take issue with Dansby sounding off publicly. “I’m of the opinion that you should keep things in house in that regard,” Philbin said. The 34-year-old Johnson had been trying to revive his career after a disap-

Cowboys beat Raiders OAKLAND, Calif. — Darren McFadden picked up where he left off before a foot injury cut last season short by gaining 38 yards on Oakland’s first three plays of the exhibition season and the Raiders went on to lose to the Dallas Cowboys 3-0 Monday night. McFadden, who missed the last nine games of 2011 with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, opened with a 4-yard run, an 18-yard reception and a 16-yard run to delight of the Raiders fans. But Carson Palmer threw an interception to Gerald Sensabaugh on the next play for Oakland (tied for No. 23 in the AP Pro32). Dan Bailey’s 33-yard field goal on the opening drive of the second half for Dallas (No. 15, AP Pro32) provided the only scoring.

Offense is a concern after preseason opener

Nicks off the PUP list ALBANY, N.Y. — Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been taken off the physically unable to perform list by the New York Giants and is eligible to start practicing with the Super Bowl champions. The Giants announced the move after practice on Monday after Nicks passed his physical. He will be limited for his first three workouts. Nicks missed the first two weeks of training camp at the University at Albany while completing rehabilitation on a broken right foot that he hurt in May at an organized team activity. The Giants will have their final training camp practice on Tuesday. The players have off Wednesday and then practice will be held Thursday at the team’s headquarters in East Rutherford, N.J. They face the Jets in a preseason game on Saturday.

Falcons’ Ryan ‘feels great’ FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — As he prepares for his fifth season as starting quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons, Matt Ryan is grateful for all the rest he can get. The Falcons’ coaching staff films each pass Ryan throws in practice before and during the season to give the team an exact number of the wear and tear on his right arm. It’s an approach Atlanta started in 2008 when general manager Thomas Dimitroff and coach Mike Smith were hired and Ryan was drafted with the NFL’s third overall pick. Ryan has missed just two games in his career, and none since Week 14 of 2009. Every little bit of rest helps Ryan, who passed for a franchise single-season high 4,177 yards last season. His arm was far more affected, however, by the 24 sacks and 84 hits he absorbed from opponents.

Jets game not critical to Giants

Super Bowl champs are more concerned with regular season than exhibition game. By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

Jones impresses Pats FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Patriots rookie Chandler Jones has heard the comparisons to Jason Pierre-Paul of the Giants. Both are 6-foot-5 defensive ends who excel at stuffing the run and rushing the quarterback. Both were first-round draft choices from colleges near their hometowns. And both figure to be major contributors to their teams for a long time. But Jones wants to carve his own path — whether it’s powering past would-be blockers or chasing down speedy running backs. He said on Monday that Pierre-Paul is a great player but not the same type as him. Pierre-Paul was drafted with the 15th pick in 2010 out of South Florida. He had 16 1-2 sacks last season. Jones was taken with the 21st pick out of Syracuse and could begin the season as a starter.

pointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011. He pledged to focus on football, then annoyed Philbin by frequently using profanity during an entertaining but R-rated session with reporters. In the Dolphins’ exhibition opener Friday against Tampa Bay, he dropped the only pass thrown his way. On Monday, the team’s other wideouts had trouble hanging onto the ball. Again and again, an accurate throw wound up on the ground, suggesting the modest reputation of the pass-catching corps is well-deserved. What does Philbin think of the group? “I wish we caught the ball a little better this morning,” he said. The position was considered perhaps the team’s weakest even with Johnson. The remaining wideouts have combined for 490 career catches and 21 touchdowns, compared with Johnson’s 766 and 67.


Philadelphia Eagles’ Michael Vick (7) and LeSean McCoy (25) are shown during an NFL preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday in Philadelphia. The Eagles won 24-23.

Eagles seek consistent effort The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM — Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Monday he was disappointed with “more than several things” about the Eagles’ performance in the team’s first preseason game. While Philadelphia emerged with a 24-23 victory over Pittsburgh on a late field goal by Alex Henery last Thursday, the Eagles’ first-string offense was on the field for just six plays, producing minus-3 yards and no first downs. “We have a lot of work to do to be an efficient and dynamic offensive football team,” Mornhinweg said on the next-to-last day of training camp at Lehigh University. “It’s frustrating when you get two three-and-outs,” guard Evan Mathis said. “You always want to have another chance to get out there and try it again, but that’s what the next game’s for.” The Eagles will take on New England next week. And if Monday is any indication, Philadelphia’s offense is going to be just fine. “A day like today gives you confidence,” quarterback Michael Vick said after one of the team’s sharper workout sessions. “I know what I can do. I know in time and throughout multiple practices you just get into a rhythm, just like during the season. You throw the ball better. Everything becomes easy, slows down. And I think I’m starting to reach that point. I’m ready to go out and play. “I’m ready to play now.” Vick, in reality, hasn’t been the problem all summer. He hasn’t missed any practice time despite hitting his thumb on the helmet of center Jason Kelce last week, and Mornhinweg said he is having a “terrific” camp. “One of the things I was disappointed in was our precision,” Mornhinweg said. “You saw the plays that were called were precision-type plays, and although we didn’t have many opportunities, several times it wasn’t there.” Vick took a sack on a play when he was well-protected, so his pocket awareness is something that can im-

Tests for Eagles CB Asomugha after collision BETHLEHEM — Philadelphia cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was evaluated for a concussion after colliding with teammate Nate Allen during a training-camp session Monday. Asomugha, signed as a free agent last year after spending his first eight seasons with Oakland, was also left with a lacerated lip and sore neck as a result of the mid-air collision, which occurred on a pass play during a seven-on-seven period. Quarterback Michael Vick attempted to hit wide receiver DeSean Jackson near the left sideline, but Asomugha and Allen, a third-year safety, converged as onlooking fans gasped. “Just one of those plays,” Allen said. “It happens sometimes. His helmet went into my chest and my forearm caught him a little bit. It happened so fast, it’s hard to tell what hit what.” The Eagles will meet New England next Monday.

prove. “He can get better there and he has gotten better over the past couple of years there,” Mornhinweg said. “He certainly can get better there. I do believe that if it was a regular-season game — and these are excuses even though everything we do is important and we make no excuses — that he would have done that a little bit differently.” Monday marked the three-year anniversary of Philadelphia and Vick agreeing to a deal, after he had been incarcerated for 21 months. “He has really learned to play the quarterback position at a really high level,” Mornhinweg said. “He is chasing that perfection every day and he wants to become a master at that position as well as being one of the most dynamic players in the game. “He has come a long way in this system and is generally playing the quarterback position at a high level.” Vick threw for 3,303 yards and 18 touchdowns last season.

“It’s very important to get into a rhythm, get into a flow” Vick said, “because who knows how the next two weeks are going to play out? So the stars are really looking forward to going out and playing three quarters. To me, we’re going to approach it like a game, Week 1.” Second-string quarterback Mike Kafka broke his left hand against the Steelers, and he is likely to miss the New England game. Rookie Nick Foles will see more time in his absence. Foles, a third-round draft pick from Arizona, has caught the staff’s eye during camp. He’s done “just about what I expected him to do,” Mornhinweg said. “He’s got an opportunity to be a heck of a quarterback. He’s a smart guy. He’s picked up the offense at a pretty good rate. You can see his accuracy is good and his timing has been good up to this point.” The Eagles made a switch at left tackle the day after the Pittsburgh game, inserting King Dunlap in place of Demetress Bell, a former Buffalo Bill who was signed as a free agent in the offseason after Pro Bowl standout Jason Peters suffered a torn Achilles tendon. “I can’t say I’m disappointed,” Bell said. “It’s not what I expected, but it’s a coaching thing. It is what it is. It definitely motivates you. I’m looking to be a starter. Until I get back there, I won’t be happy.” As for Vick, he’s already there. “It’s been a great ride,” he said, after crediting coach Andy Reid and the rest of the organization for “helping me to grow in a lot of fashions in my life and just holding me accountable.” He recalled feeling “weird” at his first practice, when he was the thirdstringer behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb, and didn’t think he would remain in Philadelphia for long. “I just thought it would be a oneyear deal and go up and venture out and see what happens,” he said. “I’m glad I was able to prove to these coaches I had a decent level of skill to play within the offense.”

ALBANY, N.Y. — The New York Giants have lost interest in the New York Jets, and some don’t even see Rex Ryan and his circus as their biggest rival. The teams in the NFC East are the Giants’ biggest concern these days, and some members of the Super Bowl champions could care less about bragging rights when the teams meet in their annual preseason game at MetLife Stadium on Saturday. Giants defensive captain Justin Tuck was so disgusted after listening to questions about the Jets, their new Wildcat offense and TebowMania that he asked reporters on Monday whether they had any questions about the Giants. “The last time I checked, I play for the Giants and I’ve only heard one question about the Giants,” Tuck said during lunch at training camp at the University at Albany. “I really don’t want to talk about the Jets.” While they meet every preseason, the Giants and Jets play only once every four years in the regular season. The Giants’ 29-14 win over the Jets on Christmas Eve last season ignited a six-game win streak that carried Tom Coughlin’s team to its second Super Bowl in five seasons. The Jets haven’t won an NFL title since Joe Namath led them to a championship in the third Super Bowl. “For me — personally — the Jets are just another team that we play,” Tuck said. “I don’t think we have a rivalry with them. I really don’t. I know we have one with our division foes. But for the Jets, it’s just another game that we need to win.” Fellow defensive end Osi Umenyiora said there is no question that the Jets are a good team. “... but us playing them, unless it’s like a Super Bowl game, it’s really not that big of a deal,” Umenyiora said. “I think definitely the NFC East is our biggest rival. You know, the Jets, anytime we play them, it’s good because we’re in the same city and same town. A lot of those guys we know and I respect them a lot, but as far as rivalry goes, it’s definitely (the) teams in the NFC East.” Umenyiora tried to be diplomatic when asked about Ryan’s contention that the Jets play in the NFL’s toughest division, the AFC East. “Rex is a great coach, man, and he’s been around the game for a while,” Umenyiora said. “He’s entitled to his own opinion.” Linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said any chance to play an in-state rival that shares the same stadium is always fun. He agreed with Tuck and Umenyiora that the NFC games impact the Giants’ season more, but he finds added incentive to face the Jets.


THE TIMES LEADER Boston Red Sox infielder Johnny Pesky, shown in 1952 during baseball spring training in Sarasota, Fla., spent most of his 60plus years in pro baseball with the Red Sox and was beloved by the team’s fans. He died on Monday in Danvers, Mass., at 92.

quarterbacks who want to start at Notre Dame. It’s one of the greatest opportunities you’ll ever have.” Hendrix was a change-of-pace backup last year with the ability to break out of the pocket and take off. No matter who takes that first snap in Dublin, he won’t have Michael Floyd to throw to. The leading receiver in school history is off to the NFL and that leaves everyone else, including standout tight end Tyler Eifert, will get more chances. “They’ve got to raise their level of game because Michael set a standard for the wide receiver position,” Kelly said. Kelly will call the plays again, but he’s got a new offensive coordinator in Chuck Martin, who coached the Irish safeties for the last two years. Kelly is expected to take a more hands-on approach this season, especially with the quarterbacks. And who knows? Maybe he’ll use more than one, like he did successfully at Cincinnati. “I’d like to have one quarterback and have him be the guy, ‘’ Kelly said. But he added that if the Irish needed to use both Hendrix and Golson, they could do it.

“Obviously they both have the ability to be starters. I can’t say I wouldn’t be comfortable,” Kelly said. Comfort on defense rests in the middle where linebacker Manti Te’o returns for a fourth year after deciding to bypass his shot at the NFL. With 324 tackles — eighth on Notre Dame’s career list — he will end up as one of the top defensive players in Irish history. “I hope I stand out as one of the best, but I don’t get too caught up in all that stuff. Hopefully at the end of the day I’m one of the best,” Te’o said. “That opportunity presented itself, to go to the NFL or play your senior year. It was a hard decision, but after thinking about it with my parents and talking with them, it’s the best decision for us.” Three veterans and a fourth player who started four games last season return to the offensive line that will try to protect the quarterback and open holes for 1,000-yard returning rusher Cierre Wood. On the right side, where the Irish lost Trevor Robinson and Taylor Dever, tackle Christian Lombard and guard Mike Golic Jr. are probable starters. Eifert will be the main target in the passing game — a 6-foot-6, 260-pounder with the size to make it tough on safeties and the speed to blow by linebackers. He caught 63 passes and had five

deserved. Pesky was often blamed for holding the ball for a split second as Enos Slaughter made his famous “Mad Dash” from first base to score the winning run for the St. Louis Cardinals against the Red Sox in Game 7 of the 1946 World Series. With the score tied 3-3, Slaughter opened the bottom of the eighth inning with a single. With two outs, Harry Walker hit the ball to center field. Pesky, touchdowns last season. Speedy Theo Riddick, with 84 catches in three seasons, will likely line up in the slot where he excelled two seasons ago before returning to running back near the end of last season. Wood is a shifty runner with speed and the Irish will need to find that tough yardage runner they had last season in Jonas Gray. George Atkinson III, who returned two kickoffs for TDs as a freshman last season, is in the mix to split time with Wood. Amir Carlisle, a transfer from Southern Cal, is bouncing back from a broken ankle suffered before spring practice. Beside Te’o on defense will be Dan Fox, who became a starter last season. Linebacker Carlo Calabrese will also be counted on after he sits out the first game, part of the punishment stemming from the same party that got Rees in trouble. Kapron Lewis-Moore, who started 13 games two seasons ago and seven straight last year before suffering a knee injury, returns at defensive end, but Notre Dame lost arguably its most promising and talented player when Aaron Lynch — a freshman last season — transferred to South Florida. He had 51⁄2 sacks and started six games. Stephon Tuitt, who started three games as a freshman a year ago, will be the other end on the other side.

commodate departing athletes and support staff. The terminal was decorated like a park, and some staff wore bearskin hats in the style of Buckingham Palace guards. “I have to say to Britain, you guys did a great job,” said passenger Tumua Anae, a 23-yearold Californian who won gold as part of the U.S. water polo team. London’s quirky mayor, Boris Johnson, gloated to reporters, saying London had defied the skeptics. Some 300,000 foreigners and 5.5 million day-trippers flocked to the city for the games. Hotel occupancy was at 84 percent — double what Beijing and Sydney saw during their Olympics. Johnson said the city’s public transport had coped just fine. Use of London’s subway — the Tube — was up 30 percent but saw few major problems. London’s overground commuter train saw double the normal crowds, and the city’s bike hire scheme broke a record with 46,000 bikes rented on a single day. Traffic actually became heavier on Monday as motorists who had stayed away to avoid Olympic crowds returned to the streets. Taxi drivers breathed a sigh of relief after having complained of fewer customers and being barred from using special Olympic road lanes. Security officials, too, could

cheer the lack of any major incident during the games. Britain has been a prime target of Islamic terror groups because of its support for the U.S.led operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Dozens of plots, including the 2006 attempt to blow up trans-Atlantic airliners, have been hatched within Britain’s sizeable Muslim population. Upping the fear factor was an Olympic security contractor’s admission just weeks before the games that it would have a shortfall of guards. In the end, the military had to provide 3,500 lastminute personnel, and contractor G4S expects to lose up to 50 million pounds ($78 million). But while police made some 250 arrests, there were no attacks — something officials at-

tributed to years of planning and boosted intelligence resources. “I’m very proud that we didn’t have anything serious to deal with, but that was because of a lot of hard work done by a lot of people,” said Olympics security coordinator Chris Allison. In central London, workers using fork lifts, cherry pickers and small cranes began clearing a temporary 15,000-seat arena — and scooping up 5,000 tons of sand — from the site of the beach volleyball competition in Horseguards Parade, a storied square in the heart of London’s Westminster political district. A total of 17 Olympic venues around the country will eventually be dismantled. But some will remain for the upcoming Paralympics.






playing shortstop, took the cutoff throw from outfielder Leon Culberson, and according to some newspaper accounts, hesitated before throwing home. Slaughter, who ran through the stop sign at third base, was safe at the plate, and the best-ofseven series went to the Cardinals. Pesky always denied any indecision, and analysis of the film appeared to back him up, but the myth persisted. “In my heart, I know I didn’t hold the ball,” Pesky once said. Born John Michael Paveskovich in Portland, Ore., Pesky first signed with the Red Sox organization in 1939 at the urging of

his mother. A Red Sox scout had wooed her with flowers and his father with fine bourbon. His parents, immigrants from what is now Croatia, didn’t understand baseball, but they did understand that the Red Sox were the best fit for their son even though other teams offered more money. He played two years in the Red Sox minor league system before making his major league debut in 1942. That season he set the team record for hits by a rookie with 205, a mark that stood until 1997 when fellow Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, with whom he became very close,

had 209. He also hit .331 his rookie year, second in the American League only to Williams, who hit .356. Pesky spent the next three years in the Navy during World War II, although he did not see combat. He was back with the Red Sox through 1952, playing with the likes of Williams, Bobby Doerr and Dom DiMaggio, before being traded to the Detroit Tigers. Pesky spent two years with the Tigers and Washington Senators before starting a coaching career that included a twoyear stint as Red Sox manager in 1963 and 1964. He came back to the Red Sox in 1969.


Bonnevier. If the Shamrocks did start their season in the winter, they might not have had the proper flooring on which to compete. “When I read in the paper they were changing the dates, we were probably two weeks out from our first game and we still didn’t have a field in place, which was one of several issues,” Bonnevier said. Because of the change of venue, season-ticket holders wanted their money back. In May 2012, WNEP reported that 12 seasonticket holders still hadn’t received their refunds. Jennings said most if not all season tickets have been refunded, which has been his main effort since he was diagnosed with cancer. “I am no longer part of the ownership group because I have stage four cancer and I need to concentrate on my health,” Jennings said. “Because of my cancer I have shut down my company Waterbucket Media.” The Shamrocks joined a new league that would play in the fall of 2012 known as the Professional Lacrosse League. “We formed the PLL because we wanted to play in the fall and not compete with the other two professional leagues that were currently playing, the Major League Lacrosse and the National Lacrosse League,” Jennings said. The Shamrocks will play somewhere in Lehigh Valley, but fans will have to wait a little longer to see the team in action. “At this point we have a venue identified and a new ownership structure for the organization,” commissioner of the PLL Brett Vickers said. “With that I will say that the Shamrocks will not be playing for the upcoming season, but will play in the 2013 season.”

Vickers also said when the current owners of the PLL moved from the NALL, the Shamrocks’ entire organization didn’t follow. “Part of their ownership decided to stay in the old league and part of the group decided to move to the PLL,” Vickers said. “So from a business perspective the SWB Shamrocks from a year ago doesn’t exist.” Among all the other alterations, the Shamrocks may also change their name, according to Vickers. “Ultimately, the partnership will make the decision on how they brand and market their product, which will be subject to league approval,” Vickers said. The Shamrocks will not play in 2012, but the PLL will still have its inaugural season this year with the remaining teams. “The PLL will have four teams playing this season, each in their own city in arena venues,” Vickers said. “We currently have two announced, Jacksonville (Bullies) and Charlotte (Copperheads), and I have just visited the other two cities this past week, met with arena management and team ownership and put the finishing touches on those leases.” The PLL season will begin Sept. 15 in Jacksonville. As for the Shamrocks, the team’s future is still in question. One thing’s for sure. The Shamrocks will not play in the WilkesBarre/Scranton area as it was announced in July 2011. “I would love to be able to offer as much entertainment as possible in this arena whether it’s concerts, sporting events or family shows,” Bonnevier said. “We love to bring opportunities for people here. I’m disappointed that they’re not here.”

“It’s a great sport and it’s something that would fit well in our arena,” Rebecca Bonnevier, SMG general manager of Mohegan Arena, said. “This market does well with sports teams so I thought that it would be a great fit.” The NALL hit a speed bump in September 2011 when the league’s Board of Governors fired Commissioner Phil Evans and replaced him with the league’s legal counsel, Anthony Caruso. In October 2011, the Shamrocks also found a new leader when the team appointed Barry Powless, who played in the NLL and the Major Indoor Lacrosse League, as head coach and the stage was set for the 2012 winter lacrosse season. A few months later the walls of the NALL started to crumble. “In December of 2011, four out of the six teams were not happy with the way the league was progressing so we fired Caruso,” Jennings said. “He filed a lawsuit to keep his job and we settled the lawsuit 90 days later and the four teams were to receive payments from the two teams left in the NALL.” Eventually the Shamrocks and a few other teams left the NALL and moved their season to the fall. The Shamrocks’ new season lost them their home-game venue. “We wanted to play in the fall at the Mohegan Sun Arena, but they were unwilling to cooperate and give us the dates we needed,” Jennings said. However, Bonnevier said Jennings never discussed the move to a fall season with her. “He defaulted on his contract,” Bonnevier said. “I read in the newspaper that they were not playing in the winter and that they were playing in the fall. He never even checked to see if I had dates available in the fall.” Jennings also didn’t meet other areas of the contract, according to

O’Brien in a numbers game

Scholarship count continues to fluctuate as another player departs Nittany Lions program. By DEREK LEVARSE


Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland reacts to his victory after the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament on the Ocean Course of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, S.C., on Sunday.

McIlroy’s dominance reminiscent of Woods


KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — The comparisons are inevitable. The incredible skill, the youth, even the red shirt on Sunday. Rory McIlroy’s dominant performance in winning the PGA Championship this weekend looked a lot like the early days of Tiger Woods. Woods saw it coming more than three years ago. McIlroy made his professional debut in America at age 19 and reached the quarterfinals of the Match Play Championship. Woods saw how he drove the ball, the putts he made, the efficient short game and the composure. “He has all of the components to be the best player in the world, there’s no doubt,” Woods said back in March 2009. “It’s just a matter of time and experience, and then basically gaining that experience in big events. Just give him some time, and I’m sure he’ll be there.” McIlroy didn’t need much time at all. The 23-year-old golfer from Northern Ireland now has won both his majors, the U.S. Open last year and this weekend’s PGA Championship, by eight shots. There have been only five majors won by eight shots or more since 1976 — three by Woods, two by McIlroy. McIlroy also won his two majors at a slightly younger age than Woods, though that is a little misleading because he turned pro earlier. The PGA Championship was McIlroy’s 16th major as a pro. Woods won his second major in his 12th try. But it was the way McIlroy won at Kiawah Island that allowed for the comparisons. After rain forced play to be suspended Saturday, he returned Sunday morning to finish the third round and built a three-shot lead. He wasted no time, pulling ahead with two early birdies. And on a demanding Ocean Course with enough wind to demand utmost precision, McIlroy played the final 23 holes without a bogey. It was reminiscent of Woods going the last 26 holes without a bogey at Pebble Beach in the 2000 U.S. Open. “He seems to have that ability that when it’s a big tournament, he’s right there just waiting to break loose,” Davis Love III said Monday. “A lot like Tiger. The bigger the stage, the better he plays.” Does that make McIlroy the next Woods? Not yet. Winning the second major was a big deal to McIlroy because so much is expected of him. He was never going to be a one-and-done major champion. The golf world knew that. But his win at Kiawah followed a turbulent season of peaks and valleys. McIlroy held off a furious charge by Woods to win the Honda Classic and go to No.1in early March. He went into a funk by missing four cuts in five tournaments, and then he shut up the critics with another dominant display in the final major 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.” That would be Augusta National for the Masters. And next year is when McIlroy will see if he can stack up to the incomparable standard created by Woods. McIlroy now is halfway home to the Grand Slam. Woods became the fifth player, and the youngest at age 24, to win all four major championships. He won the third leg at the U.S. Open with that 15-shot win at Pebble Beach, and completed the slam with an eight-shot win at St. Andrews in the British Open. Woods didn’t stop there. He won the next two majors to become the only player to hold all four professional majors at the same time. McIlroy is not there yet. Not even close. “It’s tough to say that Rory is a Tiger Woods-type player,” Graeme McDowell said. “Tiger Woods is a once-in-a-lifetime type player, and Rory McIlroy is at least a once-in-a-decade type player. He’s that good. I’ve been saying it for years how good he is.” Jack Nicklaus set the standard with 18 majors, which Woods is trying to surpass. Woods remains stuck on 14 majors, and has gone more than four years without one. Nicklaus never had a gap that big, though Nicklaus never had the problems — with injuries or in his personal life — that Woods has had to tackle. But the measure of Woods is more than just majors. Woods won 54 times around the world, including 10 majors, before turning 30. McIlroy’s win Sunday was the sixth of his career. “I’ve won my second major at the same age as he had,” McIlroy said. “But he went on that incredible run like 2000, 2001, 2002, and won so many. I’d love to sit up here and tell you that I’m going to do the same thing, but I just don’t know. It’s been great to win my first major last year and to back that up with another one this year. I can’t ask for any more. I just want to keep working hard, keep practicing, and hopefully, there’s a few more of these in my closet when my career finishes.” It was Padraig Harrington who suggested it might be McIlroy — not Woods — who might catch Nicklaus. That sounded absurd last year at Congressional when McIlroy set the U.S. Open scoring record on a course that was soft and vulnerable from so much rain. Kiawah was a strong test. McIlroy made it look easy. Asked to pick one part of his game that could have been better, Boy Wonder leaned into the microphone and said with a smile, “Nothing. It was all good.” Woods used to make it look easy. McIlroy is the sixth-youngest player to have two majors, joining a list that includes Young Tom Morris, John McDermott, Gene Sarazen, Nicklaus and Ballesteros. Those are legendary figures in golf. Morris died at age 24, while McDermott was committed to a mental hospital about the same age.

Just minutes after his first preseason practice at Penn State, Bill O’Brien was asked how many players he had on scholarship. The answer came back quickly. “I don’t know.” That’s to be expected in the aftermath of the NCAA sanctions imposed on the program. It’s a number that changes frequently this summer. Since that first practice on Aug. 6, two players have left the Nittany Lions, the latest being reserve offensive lineman Luke Graham. Penn State announced Monday that Graham, the 11th player to depart since the NCAA announcement on July 23, will remain at Penn State on scholarship but won’t play football. The first nine outgoing players transferred to other schools and are free to play immediately for their new teams. The two who have left since camp began – Graham and backup tight end Dakota Royer – would also be eligible to transfer without penalty, but have indicated they will stay at Penn State. Like Royer, Graham was not expected to see significant snaps this year. A redshirt sophomore from the Pittsburgh area, Graham came into camp as a third-string tackle behind starters Adam Gress and Donovan Smith and top backups Mike Farrell and Nate Cadogan. All Penn State players are free to transfer without penalty from now until preseason camp begins in August 2013. The exception is that any who appear in a game for the Lions this season can’t play for another school until next year. That leaves Penn State in a tough situation for the next 12 months, as unhappy players have full freedom to play elsewhere. But it’s a fact that the Lions can’t dwell on as they prepare for the season. “I try not to live in the world of uncertainty. I take it day-by-day, situationby-situation,” O’Brien said at Penn

UNC reviewing possible post of Peppers’ transcript The Associated Press

North Carolina is investigating how what appears to be a transcript for former football star Julius Peppers surfaced on the university’s website. In a statement Monday, the school said it has removed the link and that it couldn’t discuss confidential student information covered by federal privacy laws. The school didn’t confirm the authenticity of the partial grade summary, which lists Peppers’ name at the top. “Student academic records should never be accessible to the public, and the university is investigating reports of what appears to be a former student transcript on the university’s website,” the school said. The link, which surfaced late Sunday, showed Peppers received some of his highest grades in classes in the Department of African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM). A school investigation has since found fraud and poor oversight in 54 AFAM classes between summer 2007 and summer 2011, with football players making up more than a third of the enrollments and student-athletes making up 58 percent of the overall enrollments in those suspect classes. Nine of the 10 classes in which Peppers earned a B-plus, B or B-minus that could’ve helped ensure his eligibility came in the AFAM department where he was majoring, according to the possible transcript. Three were listed as independent study classes, another problem area cited in the school’s probe for a lack of supervision of work — often a research paper — performed by students. The possible transcript lists a 1.824 GPA, beginning with classes during the summer of 1998 and finishing in the fall of 2001 during Peppers’ last year on the football field for the Tar Heels under first-year coach John Bunting. The link lacked grades for five classes in summer and fall 2001 terms.

State’s media day. “I felt very good about our staff and our relationship with our players. I definitely felt like there was a trust there. I knew that there would be some guys that left, and I respect those decisions. Those guys made those decisions individually and with their families. “I’m confident the football team we have here today is going to stick together.” As far as that scholarship number goes, there are only guesses. Penn State’s total scholarship reduction doesn’t begin until the 2014-15 school year, when the Lions’ limit shrinks from 85 to 65 for four seasons. Penn State also can’t sign more than 15 players – down from 25 – for the next four seasons. The roster, as it stood after Graham’s departure, was at 68 players who originally came to the program on scholarship. But those who arrive as walk-ons can earn scholarships down the road, with starting quarterback Matt McGloin being the most prevalent example. Others in that category include two more fifth-year seniors in Jake Fagnano, the Williamsport grad competing for the starting job at strong safety, and Derek Day, who entered camp as a top backup at tailback.

Since O’Brien took over in January, 16 scholarship players have left the team for various reasons. Most have been transfers, but a few have been for medical, disciplinary or academic reasons. Some of those scholarships could end up going to more walk-ons for this school year. Like most schools, Penn State does not announce when this happens, making it difficult to keep a precise count. In the meantime, the Lions have some room to get creative. Arizona high school linebacker Brennan Franklin signed with Penn State at the start of the month before camp opened and will count as part of the 2012 signing class, which is not affected by the sanctions. Likewise, players in the upcoming class of 2013 who graduate from high school a semester early and enroll at Penn State in January can also be counted toward the 2012 limit. That’s an option Penn State has with Washington, D.C., cornerback Jordan Smith, who announced over the weekend he had verbally committed to the Lions. Heralded tight end Adam Breneman has also said he would look into early enrollment. Breneman will miss his senior season at Cedar Cliff High School near Harrisburg as he recovers from knee surgery.

Groupon sales disappoint Online deals website Groupon is reporting second-quarter earnings that beat Wall Street’s profit estimates, but it underwhelmed analysts with sales figures whose growth was hurt by unfavorable currency movements. Net income in the three months to June 30 came to $28.4 million, or 4 cents per share, beating the 3 cents expected by analysts polled by FactSet. Revenue rose 45 percent to $568.3 million, which was below the $574.8 million expected by analysts. Groupon says its revenue was $32.4 million lower because of changes in currencyexchange rates. Shares dropped $1.11, or nearly 15 percent, to $6.44 in after-hours trading.

By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK — Google Inc. is making its largest round of layoffs ever as it announced plans to cut about 4,000 jobs at Motorola Mobility just three months after buying the struggling cellphone pioneer. The move isn’t surprising given years of plummeting sales at Motorola, but it signals that Google doesn’t intend to drag Motorola along as a money-losing venture. The reductions represent about 20 percent of Motorola Mobility’s 20,000 employees and 7 percent of Google’s overall work force. Google says twothirds of the job cuts will take place outside of the U.S. Google, which has been growing for more than a decade, doesn’t have a history of mass layoffs. In previous rounds of layoffs, Google at most had cut a few hundred workers. Motorola, however, cut thousands of jobs in recent years as its cellphone division saw sales plummet. It hasn’t produced a mass-market hit since it introduced the Razr cellphone in 2004. Motorola split into two in early 2011. Google snapped up Motorola Mobility, the half that makes cellphones and cable set-top boxes, for $12.4 billion. Motorola Solutions, which makes police scanners and other professional products, remains a separate company. Google’s chief goal in buying Motorola was to use its large patent portfolio to bolster its legal defenses. Google also said it will close or consolidate about one-third of its 90 locations.

Sears plans store spinoff Sears is moving forward on plans to spin off its Hometown and Outlet stores as well as some hardware stores into a separate publicly traded company. Sears said in a regulatory filing that it expects to raise $346.5 million with the spin-off of the stores. It previously said that it expected the deal to raise $400 million to $500 million. There are a total of 1,238 Hometown, Outlet and hardware stores as of April 28.

FedEx offering buyouts FedEx Corp. will offer voluntary buyouts to U.S. employees in order to cut costs and boost efficiency, the company said Monday. The company didn’t say how many workers it hopes to shed -- just that it will provide more details during an investors meeting in early October. Among the more than 300,000 FedEx employees, the “vast majority” of buyouts will likely come from the company’s express and services units.

Skechers settles on ads A federal judge on Monday tentatively approved a $40 million settlement between Skechers USA Inc. and consumers who bought the toning shoes after ads made unfounded claims that the footwear would help people lose weight and strengthen muscles. An undetermined number of people will be able to get a maximum repayment for their purchases — up to $80 per pair of Shape-Ups; $84 per pair of Resistance Runner shoes; up to $54 per pair of Podded Sole Shoes; and $40 per pair for Tone-Ups.

Workmen start dismantling the finish to the Olympic marathon course Monday in the Mall near Buckingham Palace in London after the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics.

No gold medal for tourism in U.K.

LONDON — The Olympics brought less tourist money to recession-hit Britain than businesses had hoped for, a trade group said Monday, with a majority of tourist companies reporting losses from last year. A survey of more than 250 tour operators, hoteliers and visitor attractions found that tourist traffic fell all over Britain, not just London, said UKinbound, a leading trade association representing British tour operators and other businesses dependent on tourists.

avoided — London this summer. The capital normally sees about 1.5 million tourists on average in August, and it’s not yet clear if that is up or down this year. The official visitor figures won’t be available until September. Tourism officials say that international Olympics visitors to London, including athletes, officials and tourists, totaled about 300,000. Domestic spectators from Britain made up the majority of people visiting games venues. Restaurants and shops have complained that these games visitors did not spend as much money on food and shopping as typical summer tourists.

“A lot of people thought London would be very busy and very expensive at this time,” said Mary Rance, the group’s chief executive. “We weren’t completely surprised but we were a bit disappointed that (the Olympics) seem to have had an impact around the U.K., not just London.” The group’s survey said that of its members, 88 percent reported some losses during the games compared to the same period last year. The businesses reported that visitor numbers were down by 10 to 30 percent compared to last year, Rance said. Officials are still tallying up the total number of tourists who came to — or

NICK DELORENZO processor, backed up by a solid 2 gigabytes of RAM. This phone flies. European versions have a quadcore 1.4 GHz processor, but I’d be hard-pressed to say the U.S. model is handicapped. Despite having fewer cores, the processor itself is faster and likely consumes less power than the European version. An interesting feature of the Galaxy S3 is that you can watch videos in a small window while browsing the Web or reading e-mail. Initially, I was unsure how useful this would be, but as I used the device, it became clear that on long trips or for reference, it was actually quite handy.

Clouds are moving over our region this morning ahead of a cold front that will move across the state Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely through Wednesday morning. If you have outdoor plans today, try to get them in as early as possible or you'll run the risk of some downpours. Once the front moves east of us Wednesday, drier air moves in, bringing the showers to an end. Thursday will feature lots of sunshine. Friday will start dry but end with rain showers. The weekend includes some rain showers Saturday, but dry weather on Sunday. - Kurt Aaron m

Energizing fluids

Headaches. Fatigue. Lack of alertness. These are tell-tale signs of dehydration — the excessive loss of fluids from the body. Water is the most abundant nutrient in our body. It’s the primary ingredient in muscles, blood and other body cells. Without it, body processes become sluggish and inefficient. Here are hydration reminders from sports nutrition experts:

Check your urine: If it’s the color of straw or lemonade, you’re appropriately hydrated, say experts. Dark or apple juice-colored urine signals dehydration, or the need for more fluids. Check your weight: Before you exercise. After you exercise. Performance suffers with as little as 2 percent loss of fluid. Restore every pound you lose during exercise with a pound or so (16 to 24 ounc-

es) of fluid. Drink plain water before you exercise: It’s the best choice for most activities that last less than 90 minutes. Sip on about 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of fluid after about 15 to 20 minutes of exercise. If your workout goes beyond 90 minutes, add a sports drink that contains some carbohydrates (sugar) plus electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. Replenish energy stores and

electrolytes after intense exercise. Eating or drinking foods that contain protein and carbohydrates within a half hour after vigorous exercise can store energy back into depleted muscles, say researchers. Chocolate milk, for example, has been found to have the perfect ratio of carbohydrates to protein for recovery after an activity that lasts more than an hour. Pay attention to calcium and magnesium-rich foods. Muscle

cramps can result when these minerals are low. Good sources of calcium and magnesium? Milk, yogurt, spinach, nuts and seeds, whole grain breads, cereals, crackers. Take it easy with protein drinks. Beverages loaded with extra protein can actually increase the risk for dehydration. They are not recommended as fluid replacement drinks. — MCT Information Services

SKYROBICS: jump-starting the heart



Los Angeles Times

OS ANGELES - There’s something comical about a bunch of middle-aged women leaping like gazelles across an open plain of trampolines. Bouncing, after all, is largely

the domain of the preschool set, for which jumpers are pretty

much de rigueur. But why should 4-year-olds have all the fun? I, like so many mothers of a certain age, had gotten into a workout rut. Walk. Weightlift. Repeat. After years of the same old same old, I was eager for a change. So I decided to channel my inner kid and try Skyrobics, a trampoline aerobics class offered through the indoor trampoline park franchise Sky Zone. Trampoline fitness has existed for

at least 50 years. What’s different about Skyrobics is that it doesn’t take place on just one trampoline but 18, which are strung together in an enclosed “court,” or rectangle pattern, allowing users to jump from one trampoline to another and literally bounce off the walls. It takes 30 percent more energy to run across a trampoline than a hard

surface because it moves and rebounds, offering more resistance. It’s also easier on the joints. The instability of the trampoline surface works core and lower back muscles as well, because it requires balance. I experienced this high-intensity, low-impact routine in all its sweat-enSee SKYROBICS, Page 2C

Fathers can affect baby’s health at birth, study says By KERSTIN NORDSTROM McClatchy Newspapers

For example, photographers seem to have a greater risk of having a child with eye defects. The children of landscapers have a greater risk for gastrointestinal defects. Yet Tania Desrosiers, an epidemiologist at University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health andtheleadauthorofthestudy, cautioned that the heightened risks are still small.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It has long been known that the behavior and environment of the mother during pregnancy can affect a newborn’s health. But new research suggests thatafather’sbehaviorisimportant, too. ScientistsattheUniversityof North Carolina-Chapel Hill have found that different parental occupations may bring increased risk of birth defects. See FATHERS, Page 2C

A: That’s not exactly what the online-only British Medical Journal study reported. What they reported is that when researchers compared the medical records of 10,529 folks who received Ambien, Restoril, Lunesta, a sedating antihistamine like Benadryl or some other sedative like Xanax for sleep with 23,676 folks who did not receive any sleeping pill over an average period of 2.5 years, there were 638 deaths in the folks who used a sleeping pill compared with 295 deaths among those that did not. On the surface, the findings of this retrospective medical records review are downright scary. But there are a number of methodological flaws in this study. First of all, the reported cause of death was not identified. It’s difficult to link the entire category of sedatives with an increased risk of death when the precise cause is not identified. Second, the folks who were taking sleeping pills had a significantly higher incidence of prior disease, including coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease, asthma and obesity than those that were not. It appears that this study speaks more about the health of folks who require sleeping pills than the inherent dangers of taking sleeping pills. Correlation and association does not necessarily equal cause. While the study does give us a reason to reexamine the practice of chronic use of sleep medication (especially in folks with serious underlying health problems), this study has enough flaws to let us sleep a bit easier at night. Q: My husband suffered a stroke several months ago affecting his right side. His recovery has been slow, with only slight improvement in the use of his right arm and leg. What surprised me is that his neurologist said his stroke occurred on the left side of the brain. Can you explain? —P.S., McKeesport, Pa. A: One side of the brain controls the muscles of the opposite arm and leg. Study of the central nervous system has shown us that the motor nerve fibers that make arm and leg muscles move originate in the brain and cross to the opposite side of the body and run down the spinal cord, exiting as nerve roots. Why our bodies are designed this way is part of the mystery of human creation. Left brain strokes affect the right side of the body (and left side of the face). Speech and language problems like difficulty forming or saying the correct words may also be a result of a left brain stroke. Dr. Mitchell Hecht is a physician specializing in internal medicine.

The one-hour class, which can burn as many as 1,000 calories, starts out deceptively low key.

hanced glory on a recent night, when I joined six women in a court across the way from a bunch of teenagers going wild in a game of trampoline dodge ball. Two of the women, who’ve been taking Skyrobics since Sky Zone opened in Gardena in the spring, joked they come together so that one of them can carry out the dead body of the other when the class is over. It’s that challenging. The one-hour class, which can burn as many as 1,000 calories, starts out deceptively low key, with stretching exercises, jumping jacks and push-ups. Our enthusiastic and ridiculously buff instructor then had us take turns “rouncing” — a combination of running and bouncing — back and forth to get our hearts racing,

before restricting us to individual trampolines for jumping skyward. Then we rounced some more. We rounced, before dropping for push-ups. We rounced again, followed by leg lifts. And in a sort of rouncing finale, we flew across the trampolines only to park ourselves for sit-ups and more stretching exercises, which were far more difficult at the end of the class than at the beginning. All of us were drenched and heaving. And this, apparently, wasn’t even the hardest class. The instructor of a six-week Skyrobics boot camp likes to have his students crawl in, through and out of a pit MCT PHOTO Siri Berting warms up before a Skyrobics class at Sky Zone tramof foam cubes. poline gym in Gardena, Calif.

“Dadsshouldn’tworryorchange jobs,” she said. Birth defects are rare conditions. For example, only 1 in about 700 births results in a baby with a heart defect. Still, birth defects are the leading cause of infant mortality, and those who live with defects struggle. Thecausesofabout70percentof birth defects are still unknown. The university scientists looked at more than 60 different jobs and 60 different defects, using data from 10,000 pregnancies with de-


The university scientists looked at more than 60 different jobs and 60 different defects, using data from 10,000 pregnancies with defects and 4,000 live births without defects. fects(notallpregnanciesmadeitto term) and 4,000 live births without defects. The paper was published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Although the study establishes a correlation between jobs and defects, it does not establish the cause. It could be that DNA in the father’s sperm is damaged by chemical or radiation exposure. A chem-

ical could be carried on a sperm into the uterus, or there could be “take-home exposure,” such as pesticide residue on clothes, Desrosiers said. “If you suspect you work with toxic chemicals, use personal protective equipment, which you should be using anyway,” she said. Different occupations have exposure to different chemicals. Janitors are around cleaning products,

and photographers are exposed to developing solvents. Drivers are neardieselfumes,whilelandscapers are around pesticides. But chemical exposure may not be the whole story. Some surprising jobs, such as mathematicians and computer scientists, had elevated risks for certain defects. Desrosiers said the simple act of sitting might raise the temperature in the genitals and cause changes in sperm. No matter what the cause of the defects, the implication of the study is clear. “Dads do play a role in the health of their unborn child,” Desrosiers said. “The next set of studies will try to figure out why.”

Host wants to trim tiny terror from his summer barbecue guest list Dear Abby: My wife and I have thrown a barbecue for all our friends every summer since we were first married. Our problem is one of our good friends is now the mother of an insufferable 3-yearold boy. “Fenton’s” behavior has been awful for two years. At the last party, he managed to throw our iPod, slam our stereo to the ground, pick up and throw another child and terrorize a gentle dog. He barged in on a nursing mother and refused to leave when asked. The mom is preoccupied with a new baby and deals with the situation by making idle threats. The dad

ADVICE makes jokes about how “it sucks to be a parent” and tells his kid to stop annoying him. We’re pretty sure if Fenton returns for this year’s party, many of our other guests won’t. We want to remain friends with the mom, so not inviting her isn’t an option. Would it be out of line to ask her to leave her husband and the little terror at home? — Smokin’ Mad in Pennsylvania

ingness to take control? Because the kid causes stress in addition to property damage, leave them off the guest list this year. If she asks why, point out her son was so disruptive you were afraid your other guests would refuse to attend if he was there. Soften the “blow” by assuring her you’d love to see her and her husband for some adult time. Fenton appears to be a little boy who feels upstaged by the new baby and may be acting up in a desperate bid for attention. It would be a kindness to suggest this to his parents, who appear to be clueless.

Dear Smokin’ Mad: Which would be worse — to have the woman miffed or to be driven mad by her undisciplined child and the parents’ unwill-

Dear Abby: I’m a single woman who works two jobs and I am constantly on my feet. Because of this I gravitate toward flat-soled shoes.




I am friendly with two men (casually dating one of them) and each one has reacted negatively to my shoes. One of them said that I obviously don’t want to snag a guy because of my footwear, and the other repeated an old joke that, “A lesbian is a woman in comfortable shoes.” I am a straight female who happens to feel more comfortable in flats. High heels might look nice, but they would cause me discomfort and problems during my long workdays. I have explained this to them, but they give me funny looks. Do flat-soled shoes make you less of a woman or suspect in terms of being “straight”? Does our society view women in comfortable shoes as being possibly lesbian? I find the idea ridiculous, but two different men have

come to the same conclusion. I’m confused about their attitudes and would appreciate your ideas. — Stepping Out in Missouri Dear Stepping Out: While it may have been SAID that “clothes make the man” and “a lesbian is a woman in comfortable shoes,” neither statement has much bearing on the truth. Women who are on their feet all day — or night, depending upon their profession — should not wear shoes with high heels. Ask any podiatrist.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Distance might make the heart grow fonder, but sometimes it also arouses baseless suspicions. Don’t let your imagination run away in regards to a faraway relationship. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Friends and family have been down in the mouth lately, and now is the time to chase away a few clouds, spread a little cheer and remind them all how much they mean to you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know how infuriating it is to make a call and spend a long time on hold? Be careful that you’re not doing the same thing with a very important relationship. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The instinct to protect yourself is a survival mechanism that generally serves you well. However, you may serve yourself best today in an unguarded moment, as that’s when someone will connect with you on a deeper level. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Today sees you walking around like the cat who swallowed the canary. Everyone wants to know what your sly smile is all about, but keep that happy secret to yourself for a while. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel that you know all there is to know about a certain situation. Is it true? Put yourself to the test. If there are holes in your knowledge, you’ll patch them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You possess an ability that cannot be learned or taught. It’s something that one or both of your parents passed on to you. You will now appreciate the value of this gift.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Domestic harmony depends on certain skills, including the ability to compromise and a tendency to minimize another person’s shortcomings and dwell instead on his or her offerings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve handled change before, and you’ll handle it again — and this time even better. It may have taken you a while to get used to what once were the “new rules,” but now you’ll quickly assimilate some new “new rules.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Halfway up the mountain, you look at the summit and think you can’t possibly make it to the top. But remember that you’re already so much farther than the person who never makes the attempt at all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The song says to “pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.” This is easier sung than accomplished. Don’t turn up your nose at a helping hand from a very unexpected source. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your appetite has been whetted, but you’re still holding yourself in check. This time, don’t yield to temptation so much as simply meet it for an afternoon coffee in a public place. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 14). You’re interested in making a point and also in hearing what others have to say, habits that will lead you to money in September. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 34, 14, 28 and 11.
