WILKES-BARRE – Tyler Winstead died after a .22-caliber revolver held by his friend Elijah Yusiff inadvertently discharged and a bullet ripped into the 14year-old’s chest, investigators say. Then a panicked Yusiff and his mother scrambled to make the tragic accident look like a myste-

TAMPA, Fla. — Seizing the campaign spotlight, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan embraced “the calling of my generation” to help lead the country in tough times Wednesday night and pledged to cheering Republican National Convention delegates and a prime time TV audience that Mitt Romney will make the bold and difficult decisions needed to repair the nation’s economy. “After four years of getting the runaround, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney,” the 42-year-old Wisconsin lawmaker declared in what amounted to a national debut. “We will not duck the tough issues; we will lead,” Ryan said. His speech was part attack on Obama, part spirited testimonial to Romney, all leavened by a loving tribute to Ryan’s own mother, seated across the hall in a VIP box. “To this day, my mom is a role model,” he said while she beamed and exchanged smiles with one of his children and delegates cheered. As for Obama and the Democrats, he said they “have run out of ideas. Their moment came and went. Fear and division is all they’ve got left.” To the cheers of the delegates, he pledged Republicans would save Medicare from looming bankruptcy, despite constant accusations from Democrats that the GOP approach would shred the program that provides health care to more than 30 million seniors. “Our nation needs this debate. We want this debate. We will win this debate,” Ryan declared. But he offered no details of the remedy Republicans would pro-

Feds file liens against 4 Lupas properties By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Federal prosecutors on Wednesday took a step toward protecting alleged victims of accused investment scammer Anthony Lupas, filing claims against four properties that could be used to satisfy any restitution should he be convicted. U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith filed liens, known as a “lis pendis,” that ensure the

government has a secured claim against the properties if they are sold. “It’s a good thing because it shows the government is taking steps to see if some of the money is recoverable,” said attorney Ernest Preate, who represents several alleged victims in civil suits against Lupas. “Nobody can do anything without the government’s say so.” Lupas, 77, of Plains Township, was indicted in July on 29 counts of mail fraud

NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Isaac sidestepped New Orleans on Wednesday, sending the worst of its howling wind and heavy rain into a cluster of rural fishing villages that had few defenses

against the slow-moving storm that could bring days of unending rain. Isaac arrived exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina and passed slightly to the west of New Orleans, where the city’s fortified levee system easily handled the assault. The city’s biggest problems seemed to be downed power lines, scattered tree limbs and minor flooding. Just one person was reported killed, compared with 1,800 deaths from Katrina in

TOWSON, Md. — The teenager accused of shooting an intellectually disabled classmate at a suburban Maryland high school was accustomed to firearms in the home and had endured his parents’ contentious divorce, court documents show. After 15-year-old Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. was taken into custody Monday, police executed a search warrant at the Kingsville home where he lives with his mother and stepfather.

A bail review hearing for Gladden, who has been charged as an adult with attempted murder and assault, was postponed Wednesday afternoon because the teen was still at a state psychiatric hospital where he was sent for an evaluation. He is being held without bail, and a new hearing was not immediately scheduled. According to Baltimore County police, the pale, long-haired sophomore used a shotgun to fire at random in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School Monday morning. Daniel Borowy, a 17-year-old who has

Psoras said Wednesday that he planned to file a motion to move the case to juvenile court. Court documents indicate Gladden had a troubled home life. His parents were involved in contentious divorce proceedings that stretched over four years and included custody disputes. Documents show his father was behind more than $8,400 on his child support payments. Gladden’s 41-year-old father, Robert W. Gladden, also has a history of trouble with the law. In 2010, the younger Gladden answered the door when police executed a

Meanwhile, Gladden’s stepfather, 43year-old Andrew Piper, faces new charges of illegal gun possession and drug possession stemming from Monday’s search. Piper was prohibited from possessing firearms because of a previous conviction for grand theft, documents show. According to police and court documents, the younger Gladden brought a disassembled shotgun, 21 rounds of ammunition and a bottle of vodka with him for the first day of school Monday morning. On his Facebook page, he wrote, “First day of school, last day of my life.”

Broken trailer partially closes Route 29

EDWARD LEWIS/THE TIMES LEADER

The collapse of this truck trailer caused a partial shutdown of the Exit 1 on-ramp to state Route 29 in Sugar Notch on Wednesday. Sugar Notch police said they determined that modifications to the trailer led to the collapse. Police were dispatched at 9:09 a.m. for a disabled tractor-trailer on state Route 29 South at the Exit 1 on-ramp. Upon arrival, police determined that the trailer was modified by cutting top supports, which weakened the trailer and caused the frame to give way and the landing gear to gouge into the roadway. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Commercial Vehicles Inspection was notified and responded. The truck tractor was rented from Ryder and the trailer is owned by Rehrig Pacific Co., located in Hanover Township, police said. The disabled rig caused partial closure of the on-ramp. The trailer was carrying mulch that had unloaded, police said. Sugar Notch police were assisted by RJ Towing, Act Towing, the Sugar Notch Road Department and Panetta Construction from Warrior Run. Emergency crews remained on scene from time of dispatch to approximately 6 p.m.

PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota students are used to extreme cold and having classes called off because of winter blizzards, but the weather that caused their school day to be cut short Wednesday was intense for a different reason: the triple-digit temperatures. More than two dozen school districts across the state shut down early Wednesday as temperatures rose above 100 degrees, turning classrooms into saunas. “The major factor in the decision is the safety and welfare of students and staff members. It’s tough to learn in an environment when a room is 100 degrees,” said Eureka Superintendent Bo Beck, whose north-central South Dakota district joined others in dismissing students a few hours early because their classrooms lack air conditioning. Eureka and other districts have called off classes due to late-summer heat in past years, but school closures are more common in winter months when snow, frigid temperatures and howling winds make travel unsafe, Beck said. Scott Doering, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Aberdeen, said high temperatures Wednesday were expected to range from the low 90s in northeastern South Dakota to as high as 107 in the center of the state as a ridge of high pressure made the northern and central Plains area the nation’s hotspot. Some places in central South Dakota could break or come close to breaking records before temperatures start to drop to the 80s and lower 90s Thursday, Doering said.

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Students arriving for the first day of school at Wilkes-Barre Area’s Dan Flood Elementary School were greeted by police investigating a fight involving at least four adults Wednesday morning. Lt. Steve Olshefski said one man was seriously injured in a fight that erupted just before 9

a.m. The man was transported by city paramedics to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Olshefski said the fight had ended before police arrived. He credited school resource officers with breaking up the fight that a witness said began between two women. The witness, who declined to give his name to a reporter after he was questioned by police, said two women were screaming at each other when one of them dropped off a child. He said the screams were about a child custody dispute. “It was nasty and got worse

A Luzerne County judge on Wednesday said the trial for accused murderer Hugo Selenski will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 10. Selenski, 38, could face the death penalty if convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. The state Superior Court on Tuesday denied an appeal made by Selenski to Selenski have the charges against him thrown out, after his attorneys argued double jeopardy. The attorneys can still appeal to the state Supreme Court, which may delay the trial.

INGSTON TWP. – It was the first day of kindergarten Wednesday for the students, the school and the teacher at the Trucksville Early Childhood Education Center. Students were exploring their new classroom on their first day of formal schooling. The children were engaged in making handprints on paper, building with blocks and Legos, cooking with play food, and drawing pictures on the classroom newspaper page. Jacob Zelenak, 5, had just painted his hand red and printed it on a large sheet of paper. He said the best thing about school was playing outside. All 12 of the kindergarteners were students in preschool at the center last year. When asked if there were differences from last year, Jacob said, “All the tables and the bird.” Lauren Murray was also fascinated

She was drawing him a picture, which she said meant, “You’re the best bird ever.” Her favorite part of kindergarten so far? “Playing with my friends.” It was not only a new experience for the children but also for the center. The kindergarten class is the first the TECEC has ever offered to the community. Probably the most excited person on the first day was Tina Kravits, the kindergarten teacher. Kravits, 51, is a native of Dallas. She finished her degree in elementary education in 1983 at Wilkes University. After graduating, she became a career member of the U.S. Air Force.

Dems’ tour takes aim at Romney/Ryan By ROGER DUPUIS II rdupuis@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON -- Former U.S. Rep.

It’s laughable,” Carney said of the newly minted Republican presidential nominee Wednesday during a Scranton stop by the Democrats’ “Wrong for America” statewide bus tour, in which participants assailed Romney and running mate Paul Ryan. In particular, Carney said Pennsylvanians should be wary of a man who cut 45,000 jobs while governor

WILKES-BARRE – Wilkes-Barre Area School Board members Robert Corcoran and Louis Elmy admitted before the vote that they wanted their wives, who have worked in the district for years, to get promotions at Wednesday’s meeting. Then, after seeing the votes fail, Corcoran asked the board to reconsider, pointing out she was “the wife of a veteran” and thus merited veteran preference – something included in a new proposed hiring policy drawn up primarily by Corcoran.

A second vote could have changed the outcome. When the motion was made to appoint Sandra Elmy and Mary Claire Corcoran as teacher aids for 32.5 hours a week, Louis Elmy and Robert Corcoran each abstained from voting for their own wives but voted yes for the other man’s wife. With four board members – Mary Ann Toole, Lynn Evans, James Susek and Christine Katsock – voting no, that made the final tally 4-4 with one abstention for each wife. Tie votes mean a motion does not pass. But when Robert Corcoran asked the board to reconsider near the end of the meeting, Evans had left. If everyone had voted the same, the motion would have passed. At the start of the meeting, Sorick and others had spoken against the expected hiring of the two wives. The positions were on the agenda with blank spaces where the names would go. Frequent critic Bob Kadluboski asked if any member wanted their wives hired, and both Elmy and Corcoran said yes, stressing their wives worked for the district before they got on the board and they were qualified for the upgrade. Corcoran noted he and his wife are separated and going through a divorce. The board also voted to retain the Scartelli Olszewski law firm to help the district comply with federal subpoenas seeking a wide range of documents and information from the district. The subpoenas were delivered before the start of the regular monthly meeting Aug. 15 by Secret Service agents who then sat through the meeting. The vote to hire the outside firm drew more disgust from the audience. Legal fees in the district have skyrocketed in recent years, topping $500,000 last year.

Arafat poisoning story denied

B R I E F

France to probe death of Palestinian leader By DANIEL ESTRIN Associated Press

AP FILE PHOTO

Dead mosquitoes are lined up waiting to be sorted at a Dallas County lab probing for West Nile in Dallas, Texas. ATLANTA

West Nile cases up sharply

est Nile virus cases are up 40 percent since last week and may W rival the record years of 2002 and 2003,

federal health officials said Wednesday. So far this year, 1,590 cases of the mosquito-borne disease have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and there have been 66 deaths. About half of the cases are serious illnesses, and the CDC considers those the best indicator of West Nile activity because many mild cases do not get reported and their symptoms may not even be recognized. Typical symptoms are fever, headache and body aches, and most people get better on their own in a few days. Less than 1 percent develops neurological symptoms such as stiff necks and even coma and paralysis.

JERUSALEM — A former Israeli official on Wednesday denied suspicions that Israel poisoned Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat as France prepared to begin an investigation into his possible murder following a Swiss lab’s claim that it found traces of a deadly substance on his belongings. Dov Weisglass, chief of staff to thenIsraeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon at the time of Arafat’s death in 2004 and a key participant in deliberations surrounding Arafat’s worsening health, said Israel had no reason to physically harm the Palestinian leader. For the last two years of Arafat’s life, Israel confined him to his headquarters in the West Bank town of Ramallah, accusing him of encouraging a violent Palestinian uprising at the time. “Israel did not have any hand in this,” Weisglass told Israel’s Army Radio station on Wednesday, even while calling

Arafat

Arafat “one of Israel’s worst enemies.” “We did not physically hurt him when Arafat was in his prime ... so all the more so we had no interest in this kind of activity when he was politically side-

lined,” he said. Weisglass said that he and another Israeli official were dining in Brussels with the EU’s foreign policy chief at the time, Javier Solana, when the diplomat’s cellphone rang call close to midnight: ThenPalestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia was on the line saying that Arafat needed immediate medical attention at a Ramallah hospital. Would Israel allow him to leave his compound? Weisglass said he called Sharon at his home and he immediately approved the request. The next morning, Weisglass said, the European diplomat called him to say Pal-

estinian doctors in Ramallah said Arafat was very ill and needed to be evacuated for better treatment in Europe. Weisglass said Sharon consulted with intelligence officials, who believed Arafat was merely suffering from complications related to the flu. But a Palestinian informant close to Arafat’s doctors in Ramallah said Arafat had only days to live. Sharon immediately permitted Arafat to seek medical treatment in France so Israel could not be accused of exacerbating his illness, Weisglass said. Arafat, 75, died about two weeks later on Nov. 11, 2004, in a French military hospital outside Paris of what doctors called a massive stroke. According to French medical records, he had suffered inflammation, jaundice and a blood condition known as disseminated intravascular coagulation, or DIC. But the records were inconclusive about what brought about the DIC, which has numerous causes including infections, colitis and liver disease.

Cash-aid fund gets ‘funeral’

About 300 people staged a mock funeral outside the governor’s residence Wednesday to protest the elimination of a state cash-assistance program. The demonstrators marched several blocks carrying two black cardboard coffins and chanting slogans aimed at Gov. Tom Corbett, even though he was attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Speakers at the rally said the loss of the decades-old General Assistance program was devastating to Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable residents, including disabled people, abused women and recovering addicts. The program, which provided more than 60,000 participants with $200 monthly payments, was eliminated Aug. 1 to save the state about $150 million a year. Corbett advocated the move and the Legislature approved it. Four protesters who sat down in the middle of busy Second Street in an attempt to block traffic were promptly arrested, handcuffed and taken away by Capitol Police. KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

3 NATO troops killed

The U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan says three of its troops have been killed by a man in an Afghan army uniform. The attack is the latest in a rising number of disturbing shootings this year by Afghans soldiers — or insurgents dressed as government troops — on the international forces training them to fight the Taliban as the international coalition withdraws. NATO said Wednesday the latest attack came a day earlier in southern Afghanistan. It gave no other details. Similar “insider attacks” have been rising sharply, with 34 of them so far this year. Forty-five coalition members have been killed, mostly Americans. BAGHDAD

General is 1 of 6 killed

Attackers killed six Iraqi security officials including an army general on Wednesday, officials said, the latest wave of insurgent attacks aimed at undermining the central government. The deadliest attack of the day came in the city of Kirkuk, where three policemen were killed and six wounded. City police commander Sarhad Qadir said their convoy hit a roadside bomb. The general died in a drive-by shooting in Baghdad. Police said Brig. Gen. Nadhum Tayeh was driving to work in the morning when a carload of gunmen opened fire, killing him. Hours later, authorities said an offduty army colonel was killed in a roadside bombing in northern Baghdad. In a third attack, gunmen with silenced weapons shot and killed an off-duty policeman as he was walking near his house in eastern Baghdad.

Book contradicts bin Laden death details Former SEAL’s account disputes version terrorist was going for gun. By KIMBERLY DOZIER AP Intelligence Writer

WASHINGTON — A firsthand account of the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions as to whether the terror mastermind presented a clear threat when SEALs first fired upon him. Bin Laden apparently was shot in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as SEALs rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette, writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen in “No Easy Day.” The book is to be published next week by Penguin Group (USA)’s Dutton imprint. Bissonnette says he was directly be-

Bin Laden hind a point man going up the stairs in the pitch black hallway. Near the top, he said, he heard two shots, but the book doesn’t make it clear who fired them. He wrote that the point man had seen a man peeking out of a door. The author writes the man ducked back into his bedroom. The SEALs found him crumpled on the floor with a hole visible on the right side of his head and two women wailing over his body. After wiping blood from his face, they were certain it was bin Laden.

Bissonnette says the point man pulled the two women out of the way. He and the other SEALs then shot a still twitching bin Laden several times until he lay motionless. The SEALs later found two untouched weapons stored by the doorway, the author said. Administration officials briefing reporters in the days after the May 2011 raid in Pakistan said the SEALs shot bin Laden only after he ducked back into the bedroom because they assumed he might be reaching for a weapon. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor would not comment on the apparent contradiction late Tuesday. But he said in an email Wednesday, “As President Obama said on the night that justice was brought to Osama bin Laden, ‘We give thanks for the men who carried out this operation, for they exemplify the professionalism, patriotism and unparalleled courage of those who serve our country.’ ”

Syrian leader says war goes well

President Assad appears in TV interview in which he says his army is gaining upper hand. By PATRICK J. McDONNELL Los Angeles Times

BEIRUT -- Syrian President Bashar Assad says the tide of battle in his war-ravaged nation is turning in the government’s favor, even as violence continues to rage and the uprising against his rule enters its 18th month. “We are moving forward; the situation is improving,” Assad declared in an interview with Syria’s Addounia TV, a privately owned station that is fiercely progovernment. Authorities need more time to win the battle, Assad said in his first televised interview since escalating rebel attacks that began last month in Syria’s two major cities appeared to put government forces on the defensive. Excerpts of the interview were released early Wednesday; the full session was expected to be aired later in the day. It was not clear when the interview was taped. But Assad himself said the discussion took place inside the presidential palace -- a point that seemed aimed at quashing persistent rumors that he has been hiding out away from the capital, where the sound of gunfire and rumble of artillery have become routine. “I am here with you in Damascus, in the presidential palace,” he told the Addounia interviewer. Assad dismissed as “not practical” a proposal from officials in neighboring Turkey that a buffer zone be set up inside Syrian territory to handle ever-growing numbers of refugees fleeing the fighting. The U.N. Security Council is expected to discuss Turkey’s suggestion and Syria’s growing humanitarian crisis on Thursday. As many as 5,000 Syrian refugees a day have been streaming into Turkey, a tenfold increase compared with a few weeks ago, the U.N. reported this week. Turkey is seeking more international help to cope with the influx. In the interview, Assad asked people to encourage wavering rebels to return to the government fold; on other occasions he has vowed to crush armed resistance, which he blames on foreign agitators. “The fate of Syria is in the hands of the Syrian people,” he said. A TV promotion quoted the president labeling the conflict “a fight of wills.” Assad spoke as Syrian forces, relying heavily on air power and artillery, appeared to be having some success at thwarting rebel efforts to consolidate territorial gains. In Damascus and the northern city of Aleppo, the military says its forces have pushed back “terrorists,” the government’s term for armed opponents. State-run media said Wednesday that authorities had repelled a “terrorist” assault on a strategic military air base outside the northern town of Taftanaz, between Aleppo and Idlib.

Abuse handling may have violated Title IX The Associated Press

Among the legal questions still swirling around Penn State, one has drawn little attention but could pose a threat to the university: Did the school’s handling of sex abuse allegations against assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky violate the federal Title IX gender discrimination law? Title IX could be in play because the 40-year-old law — most commonly associated with access for girls and wom-

en to sports teams — has become the main framework governing how colleges and universities must respond to reports of sexual assault and ensure a safe learning environment for students. As Penn State tries to move past the scandal, Title IX is potentially more than a legal afterthought. The reason: Not only have Title IX lawsuits produced some of the most expensive judgments against universities in recent years, but the law allows for the possibility

that a university’s access to all federal dollars could be cut off. In reality, experts say, it’s unimaginable the feds would impose what some call the “academic death penalty” available under Title IX to shut down research and cripple a university that educates and employs tens of thousands of people who had no involvement with the scandal. Nor is Penn State’s accreditation, also required for receivAP FILE PHOTO ing federal funds, considered in jeopardy despite a recent warn- Students walk past the Old Main administration building on ing from its accrediting agency. the Penn State campus in State College.

had nothing to do with its choice. Toole echoed that claim, saying the board wanted an outside attorney to ensure the district fully complies with the subpoenas, which seek a “very large amount” of records. Business Manager Leonard Przywara said the Scartelli Olszewski firm will be paid $295 an hour for work by a lead attorney and $125 for work by an associate attorney. And the board voted to have Wendolowski review a contract approved at the Aug. 15 meeting with Step by Step Learning in Whitehall. The $357,721 contract is for teacher training designed to improve literacy learning in early grades. Toole said the decision to review the contract came after “further information emerged” about the contract.

curfew just to be sure. But in Plaquemines Parish, a sparsely populated area south of the city that is outside the federal levee system, dozens of people were stranded in flooded coastal areas and had to be rescued. The storm pushed water over an 18-mile levee and put so much pressure on it that authorities planned to intentionally puncture the floodwall to relieve the strain. By midafternoon, Isaac had been downgraded to a tropical storm and the Louisiana National Guard wrapped up rescue operations in Plaquemines Parish, saying they felt confident they had gotten everyone out and there were no serious injuries. “That should be everyone,” National Guard spokesman Capt. Lance Cagnolatti said. “We’re pulling out.” Isaac’s maximum sustained winds had decreased to 60 mph by Wednesday evening. Even at its strongest, Isaac was far weaker than Hurricane Katrina, which crippled New Orleans in 2005. Because Isaac’s coiled bands of rain and wind were moving at only 5 mph — about the pace of a brisk walk — the threat of storm surges and flooding was expected to last into a second night as the immense

trees and flattened fields of sugar cane so completely that they looked as if a tank had driven over them. Plaquemines Parish ordered a mandatory evacuation for the west bank of the Mississippi below Belle Chasse because of worries about a storm surge. The order affected about 3,000 people, including a nursing home with 112 residents. In Jefferson Parish, the sheriff ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew. After wind-driven water spilled over the levee in Plaquemines Parish, state officials said they would cut a hole in it as soon as weather allowed and equipment could be brought to the site. Forecasters expected Isaac to move inland over the next several days, dumping rain on drought-stricken states across the nation’s midsection before finally breaking up over the weekend.

comma-shaped system crawled across Louisiana. “We didn’t think it was going to be like that,” Brockhaus said. “The storm stayed over the top of us. For Katrina, we got 8 inches of water. Now we have 13 feet.” In Plaquemines Parish, about two dozen people who defied evacuation orders needed to be rescued. The stranded included two police officers whose car became stuck. “I think a lot of people were caught with their pants down,” said Jerry Larpenter, sheriff in nearby Terrebonne Parish. “This storm was never predicted right since it entered the Gulf. It was supposed to go to Florida, Panama City, Biloxi, New Orleans.

Jenelle and Chris O’Brien of Dallas have enrolled daughter Kyla in the program. Jenelle is the parent representative to the center’s school board. Jenelle, who taught first grade in public school for six years, said two of the reasons they chose the new program were small class size and the full-day program. “It gives them more time to explore.

Rising gas prices are not likely to limit the plans of the more than 43,000 WilkesBarre area travelers AAA Mid-Atlantic estimates will travel for the Labor Day holiday. The projections are that 2.3 percent more people will travel 50 miles or more this weekend compared to the same weekend last year. The Labor Day holiday travel period is defined as today through Monday. AAA spokeswoman Jana L. Tidwell said a small percentage of people might change their plans to travel this weekend because of gas prices that rose three cents overnight Tuesday into Wednesday and may continue to climb over the next few days by a few pennies per gallon. “But historically, what we’ve seen is that people make their plans well in advance and most people will keep those plans,” Tidwell said. Pump prices are expected to rise over the next few days as Hurricane Isaac makes its way through the Gulf Coast and into the nation’s interior, but not like the dramatic spikes Hurricane Katrina caused seven years ago when that storm ravaged the same region. Katrina damaged oil production rigs and refineries and caused gas prices to escalate quickly and the higher prices lingered for weeks as repairs were made and production was down. While rigs and refineries are temporarily shut down due to Isaac, there are no reports of damage and they should be operational within days. AAA projects that 36,090, or 84 percent of those traveling in this region will do so by automobile. Nine percent, or 3,881, will get to their destination by flying. It’s those travelers, and others who are going on cruises, that could be affected by Isaac, which slammed the Gulf Coast Tuesday and Wednesday and is expected to move through the nation’s interior toward the Great Lakes. Isaac already has disrupted flights and cruises in the Southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean. Hundreds of flights were canceled in Florida, and cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruises have changed some itineraries. AAA Mid-Atlantic reminds travelers to check for changes with their agents and to get travel insurance. Local gas prices Wednesday averaged $3.76 per gallon, 15 cents more than last year at this time when the average was $3.61.

Jeffrey Sanchez, as part of the tour, said Romney outsourced jobs for a state services call center to India. “He actually shipped jobs overseas,” said Sanchez, so callers “weren’t being helped by a resident of Boston or Springfield or Worcester but by someone in Bangalore or another city in India.” “He wasn’t about creating jobs,” 17th District congressional candidate Matt Cartwright, of Moosic, said. “He was about creating wealth for himself, his cronies, his investors.” Old Forge resident Laureen Cummings, Cartwright’s Republican challenger in November, questioned how an attorney such as her opponent could object to a businessman making a living.

“My question would be to Mr. Cartwright, what does he use the 30 percent profit from his clients for,” Cummings said in a telephone interview. “Isn’t that wealth for himself? Isn’t that why he collects it?” Romney spokeswoman Kate Meriwether said Democrats are deflecting criticism of their own damaging fiscal practices and that they misrepresented Romney’s public education policies when he was governor and the House Republican budget recommendation on Pell grants. Amid the bustle of a presidential contest, Carney took a few moments to reflect on his own career. He represented the 10th Congressional District for two terms, from 2007 to 2011. He rode into office with his 2006 upset of veteran Republican Don Sherwood, defeated GOP challenger Chris Hackett in 2008 but was felled by Republican Tom Marino in 2010. “We’re figuring things out,” Carney replied when asked whether he would consider a future run, “but probably not.” How might Congress have been different had he been reelected two years ago? “We would have had, certainly, another voice of moderation,” said Carney, known for his status among conservative “Blue Dog” Democrats.

The device, which measured 7½ inches long and 1½ inches wide, was constructed with a cardboard tube, propellant black powder, a fuse and nails glued to the outside perimeter, the complaint says. Miller allegedly said during an unrelated court hearing in September 2011 that the device was made by a friend in West Pittston and he was going to use the device to “destroy pigeons,” according to the complaint. State police said the device if exploded would have propelled nails in multiple directions.

FIGHT While the two women were fighting, two men who were with the women began fighting, he said. Olshefski said police were trying to figure out what happened. He said the child was unharmed during the melee. Police did not release names of those involved in the fight. There was blood spatter in the middle of the road that was washed down with bleach by firefighters. Paramedics treated a woman who appeared to be a school employee on a curb in front of the school on North Washington Street. She was given an oxygen mask while her wrist was being examined by paramedics. She declined to be taken to a hospital. The witness who observed the fight said the melee was an isolated incident and the bigger story is parking and speeding on North Washington Street. He said parents dropping off their children often double-park and motorists speed on the road while children are crossing the street. He expressed concerns that a child will be struck by a speeding vehicle.

OTHER OPINION: NONVIOLENCE

On found tape, King urges love

A

HALF-CENTURY after it was recorded, the voice of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. can be heard once again declaring the imperative of loving one’s enemy in a forgotten interview with supporters in Chattanooga, Tenn. On a recently discovered tape that was tucked away in an attic, King explains why he was determined to lead the civil rights movement in the direction of securing “a moral end through moral means” – the end of Jim Crow laws and legally sanctioned segregation in America. “(Nonviolent protest) grows out of the whole concept of love, because if one is truly nonviolent that person has a loving spirit, he refuses to inflict injury upon the opponent because he loves the opponent,” King said in a voice ringing with moral clarity. “I am convinced that when the history books are written in future years, historians will have to record this movement as one of the greatest epics of our heritage. It represents struggle on EDITORIAL BOARD

the highest level of dignity and discipline.” It is a remarkable recording from a tumultuous time in the nation’s history. On Dec. 21, 1960, the Montgomery bus boycott victory was behind him, but his famous “March on Washington” speech, the historic civil rights legislation signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson and, of course, King’s assassination were years down the road. It was not at all clear how the country would react to the challenge of civil rights – nonviolent protest or not. The man who found the recording, Stephon Tull, already has arranged for it to be sold through a New York gallery. It would be to society’s good if a museum or university bought it instead of a memorabilia collector. The sound of Dr. King’s voice deserves to be accessible to scholars and the public. There are still lessons to be learned from him 50 years later. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Blame poverty, not bad teachers, for struggling schools ARE AMERICAN schools the best in the world? The answer is a resounding maybe – which is good news indeed for this backto-school season. Beating up on public education is practically our national sport. I often do it myself. But overlooked in the ongoing assault is strong evidence that U.S. schools actually are worldbeaters – except for the problem of poverty. When it comes to reading, in fact, our schools might well be the best in the world. As Stanford University education professor Linda Darling-Hammond points out, U.S. 15-year-olds in schools with fewer than 10 percent of kids eligible for free or cut-rate lunch “score first in the world in reading, outperforming even the famously excellent Finns.” This 10 percent threshold is significant because, in high-achieving countries such as Finland, few schools have more poor kids than that. In other words, if you look at American schools that compare socioeconomically, we’re doing great. But wait, it gets better. U.S. schools where fewer than 25 percent are impoverished (by the same lunch measure) beat all 34 of the relatively affluent countries studied except South Korea and Finland. U.S. schools where 25 to 50 percent of students were poor still beat most other countries. These results are from the 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment, a widely followed effort to compare educational outcomes. PISA scores inspire

If American kids who aren’t poor are doing so well, maybe our problem isn’t bad teachers or inadequate school spending or DANIEL AKST indifferent parents or screen-besotted children. Maybe the problem is simply a good deal of hand-wringing in this counpoverty – and the shameful fact that we try – overall, we were 14th in reading – but have so much more of it than any I suspect we’ve been taking away the wrong comparable country. message by not adjusting for poverty.

COMMENTARY

That’s odd, because most people know there’s a connection between poor families and poor school performance. The link is reflected in various sources, including the SAT, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and the Trends in International Math and Science Study. So the connection, which exists in most countries, is clear. But somehow the implications haven’t been, and now that school is again upon us, it’s worth thinking this through. If American kids who aren’t poor are doing so well, maybe our problem isn’t bad teachers or inadequate school spending or indifferent parents or screen-besotted children. Maybe the problem is simply poverty – and the shameful fact that we have so much more of it than any comparable country. How much child poverty are we living with? A study this year by UNICEF found a U.S. child poverty rate of 23.1 percent – way beyond any other economically advanced nation except Romania. In Spain, which is in a depression, the figure was 17.1 percent. In Canada it was 13.3. In Finland, 5.3. If poverty is the problem, families in

middle-class school districts needn’t worry much about their kids’ schools. But they should be worried about the society in which they live, for even if we have hearts of stone, we do not have heads made of the same material. Economic growth – to say nothing of a healthy democracy – depends on an educated citizenry, and we cannot afford to let a large segment of the populace embark on adulthood seriously underschooled. Some education reformers, such as Diane Ravitch, understand poverty’s effects on our schools. Geoffrey Canada has launched the Harlem Children’s Zone Project to provide poor children with a comprehensive set of programs addressing both poverty and education. It’s an effort well worth watching. If the problem with education in this country really is poverty, it will not be easy to fix. Yet that is no reason for kidding ourselves about what’s actually wrong. Daniel Akst is a columnist for Newsday and a member of the newspaper’s editorial board.

Writer: Area Democrats slaves to the party line

T

he vice president need not worry about this area being put back into chains. Many people around here have been gladly wearing the chains of the Democratic Party for many years and have passed those chains down from generation to generation. They have been enslaved to the thinking of labor unions and to the fact it is not what you know but what Democrat you know. So, he and the president need not worry about the unemployment rate, the national debt, a failed stimulus plan, when the cost kicks in for the Affordable Care Act, that our tax dollars were used to bail out GM, that they talk about paying a “fair share” and keeping jobs here (as companies such as GE do everything in their power not to pay any taxes and their buddy, GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, sends jobs to China) and that Iran almost has a nuke. The list goes on and on; but that’s OK, right? That darn Bush did it. LOL! Fred Lindbuchler Kingston Township

hy does the Republican Party consistently cultivate what I would argue is a perverted GOP platform by pushing for complete control over the female anatomy? We should give the sitting tea party Republican Congressman Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin credit for revealing what so many in his party wholeheartedly believe, that abortion under any circumstances should be criminal. While Paul Ryan’s congressional record

DOONESBURY

on women’s issues is disturbing and a mirror of Akins’, Mitt Romney has teetertottered between pro-choice and antiwoman policies for years, finally settling on the latter – with he and Ryan supporting the rabid Republican platform against Planned Parenthood, contraception coverage and all abortion. So let them explain to the women of Team USA, the highest medal-winning Olympic athletes of all time, that they should be denied the safe reproductive rights for which previous generations of sisters fought. Republican backroom-deal attempts at inserting government into the most personal aspects of a woman’s life are disgusting, sinister and dangerously alarming. Wake up, girls. These anti-choice GOP conservatives are out of the woodwork now, and they want you punished for controlling your own uterus. And, yes, they have begun a war on women; are you ready for battle?

He allegedly made up a story Winstead was gunned down in a drive-by shooting by a man in a red Ford, the complaint alleges. Teen already charged Yusiff was charged as a juvenile with an undisclosed offense in May during a closed hearing in Luzerne County Court. District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis has maintained state law prevents her from discussing the case due to Yusiff’s age.

Salavantis did not return messages seeking comment. DeAbreu and Yusiff told investigators that after Winstead was shot they did not own or have any guns in their house. Investigators found a spent .22-caliber projectile, blood spatter on the floor and walls, bleach and a bleach stained carpet inside a bedroom at 117 Hill St., the complaint says. The night of the shooting, Yusiff told investigators he was playing basketball with Winstead at the Catholic Youth Center on South Washington Street and returned to his Hill Street home. They spent an hour in the house when Winstead walked outside and Yusiff heard a gunshot. Yusiff’s story about a drive-by shooting was refuted by Odetta Todd, who told investigators she was parked in front of

ceived voice mails from a woman claiming to be a friend of DeAbreu, asking them to conceal a gun left in a rear yard on Hill Street. A resident of Hill Street said he found a gun in a scrap metal pile behind his house at about 9 p.m. on April 6. The weapon was missing when the resident went looking for it the next morning. In later interviews, Yusiff told investigators the gun was kept in a hollowed-out book kept in DeAbreu’s bedroom. He allegedly admitted the gun discharged while his finger was on the trigger and Tyler was sitting on a bed, the complaint says. Yusiff claimed he picked up the spent shell casing and hid it in a pile of scrap metal behind Winstead’s house where he lived with his grandparents, who were his legal guardians.

Investigators alleged they found the spent shell casing behind 119 Hill St. Investigators recovered the hollowed-out book from the house of Hector Suarez in South Bound Brook, N.J., on May 23, the complaint says. Suarez is DeAbreu’s brother. The gun has not been recovered. “We’re certainly hopeful we could close this chapter on this book and give everyone some closure and resolve it to everyone’s satisfaction,” Marsilio said. The death of Winstead spurred city, community and religious leaders earlier this summer to form Building Bridges, a grassroots campaign to heal a community after the shooting. The group held meetings to discuss ways on how to improve city life and stem violence.

This property on Thornhurst Road in Bear Creek Township is among four properties prosecutors are seeking to seize as part of an investment fraud case filed against Anthony Lupas. The property is assessed at $52,600.

to seize any property that was purchased with illegally obtained money. The four properties, two of which are located in Bear Creek Township and one each in Buck and Bear Creek townships, have a combined total assessed market value of $896,600, according to county records. Preate said it’s not clear how much money might be recovered, however, because the properties may have mortgages. Some of the properties are also co-owned by others with Lupas and his wife, Lillian. Those claims would have to be paid first, Preate said. “They can’t take property from other people who were not involved in any criminal activity,” Preate said. The most valuable property is a 589acre land track on Bald Mountain in Bear Creek Township that houses 10 windmill towers owned by Community Energy Inc. The property has an assessed market value of $642,000. It is jointly owned by Anthony and Lillian Lupas, along with John and Judy Lupas, Grace Lupas, Eugene Bartoli and Robert Frankelli. The other properties being sought are a 49-acre vacant lot in Laflin assessed at $178,000; a cottage on Thornhurst Road in Bear Creek Township valued at $52,600 and a half-acre vacant lot on Thorn Hurst Road assessed at $24,000. Prosecutors have not sought to seize two other properties owned by Lupas and his wife: his law office on West Jackson Street in Wilkes-Barre, assessed at $142,900, and a home at 17 Dogwood Drive in Laflin that’s jointly owned with Bernard and Diane Bartoli, assessed at $257,800. Heidi Havens, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, declined to comment on why those properties were not included, citing the pending case. Lupas has remained free pending resolution of the case, which has been delayed while he undergoes an evaluation to determine if he is competent to understand the charges against him. U.S. District Judge Robert Mariani recently ordered Lupas to undergo treatment by a physician who specializes in geriatric medicine. The physician will issue a report within four months. A hearing will then be held to determine Lupas’ competency.

TAMPA, Fla. – A tour of a brewery with local roots was among the events at the Republican National Convention that two local delegates enjoyed on Wednesday, before hearing from their vice presidential candidate later in the evening. State Sen. John Gordner, R-Berwick, said the day began with a breakfast at which U.S. House Speaker John Boehner stopped by and commented on the success Pennsylvania Republicans had in 2011, noting in particular the election wins of U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta in the 11th Congressional District and U.S. Rep. Tom Marino in the 10th. After breakfast, Josh Romney, one of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s five children, spoke of his father’s family life, noting that his 18 grandchildren call him “Poppa. He’s very involved with his family and grandchildren,” Gordner said. On Tuesday, Gordner said, he was impressed at how “very genuine” Romney’s wife, Ann, seemed in her speech. “She’s not a lawyer like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama. She’s more of a Laura Bush type person, very down-to-earth.” Ann Romney told the story of how she and her husband lived in a basement apartment when he was 22 and they had “an ironing board for a table. They got married while Mitt was going to law school and business school. They were a typical, struggling newlywed couple,” Gordner said. Pundits have said Ann Romney’s speech was intended to show a softer side of Romney with whom middle class voters could relate.

What: Party to watch Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. When: 8 to 11 tonight. Where: Mulligan’s Irish Pub, 41 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre. Who: Hosted by the Luzerne County Republican Party, the party is open to the public and admission is free.

Christie speech Gordner said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was “the one guy I really wanted to hear from,” and Christie’s Tuesday night keynote speech didn’t leave Gordner disappointed. Coming from a state heavily in debt and assessing high taxes like Pennsylvania, Christie said he had to do “the right thing, not the easy thing,” he said. Gordner said a “debt clock” on the convention floor showed the U.S. was “almost $16 trillion in debt and has gone up $5 trillion in the past five years because we haven’t had a leader willing to make the tough decisions.” Gordner said one of the “fun things” he got to do at the convention was visit the Tampa brewery of Yuengling, at which owner Dick Yuengling hosted a reception for the Pennsylvania delegation. Proud of Yuengling Barletta, who also attended the reception, said he felt “very proud knowing that the Yuengling brand started in (and remains based in) Pottsville, Pennsylvania. And to see how that company grew was very exciting for me, with it being a small family business.”

As for the speeches he’s heard over the past two days, “it’s hard to say what speech for me was the absolute best,” Barletta said. He did note one of the most recent he heard as of Wednesday night – that of former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. “It could have been a State of the Union speech,” Barletta said, adding that Ann Romney’s speech on Tuesday also was excellent. Barletta said the themes he’s heard consistently is that a current lack of leadership in the Oval Office is hurting the country. “Condoleeza Rice said the way to peace is through strength, and you cannot lead from behind. The current lack of leadership is causing more unrest around the world,” Barletta said. Barletta said Christie’s speech on Tuesday “knocked it out of the park” and “laid the groundwork for GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s speech Wednesday night.

Sununu warmed up crowd Aaron Kaufer, candidate for state representative in the 120th Legislative District, noted that former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu “warmed up the crowd” at the breakfast Thursday, saying that states like Pennsylvania and New Jersey will decide the election in November. Kaufer said Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett introduced Christie at the breakfast meeting and that Christie, who arrived after Sununu spoke, said there was “no way New Jersey was in play so it was up to Pennsylvania to carry the torch” in November.

Addressing the American Legion in Indianapolis, he said, ‘There are plenty of places to cut in a federal budget that now totals over $3 trillion. But defense is not one of them.” The presidents Bush, George H.W., elected in 1988, and his son, George W., winner in 2000 and 2004, were featured in an evocative video. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the party’s 2008 nominee, spoke on his 76th birthday and said he wished he’d been there under different circumstances.

Yoko Ono group protests fracking

The formation of Artists Against Fracking was announced in Manhattan. By ALEX KATZ Associated Press

NEW YORK — Yoko Ono and her son, Sean Lennon, on Wednesday launched a coalition of artists, musicians and filmmakers who oppose hydraulic fracturing in New York state. The formation of the group Artists Against Fracking was announced at a news conference in Manhattan with Ono, Lennon and Mark Ruffalo, who has long been outspoken on the issue. Other celebrities joining the coalition’s cause include Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Alec Baldwin. The group’s formation comes as Gov. Andrew Cuomo prepares to decide whether to allow shale gas drilling using high-volume hydraulic fracturing — known as hydrofracking, or fracking — after four years of studying its health and environmental impacts. The process uses millions of gallons of chemically treated water to blast open gas-rich shale deposits deep underground. Ono and Lennon are calling on the governor to ban drilling in New York, which they said can cause gas wells to leak harmful methane into water supplies. They said their group has requested a meeting with Cuomo to discuss the issue. In a letter sent to Cuomo on Monday, Ono and Lennon called fracking “a danger to New Yorkers.” “Inevitably, the process leads to the release of toxic chemicals — many of which are unknown and unreported — into our air and water,” they wrote. The letter added: “It is a direct public health threat to families and communities.” Proponents argue that drilling and fracking in the Marcellus Shale formation, which covers large parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia, promises to deliver relatively cheaper natural gas to close customers in the energy-hungry Northeast and create hundreds of wellpaying jobs in an economically depressed region. Cuomo is expected to allow drilling to begin on a limited basis near the Pennsylvania state line, though Ono said she is confident the governor and fracking supporters will eventually come around. “Eventually logic will overcome everything,” she said. “Logic and love.” The coalition is encouraging the public to pressure lawmakers to take action against fracking. Beyond that, Ono and Lennon told The Associated Press that their next steps largely depended on Cuomo’s actions in the coming weeks. “It’s much better to play it by ear,” Ono said.

ALLENTOWN — Keep that champagne on ice. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees received a rather cold reception to their planned divisionclinching party. Instead, Cody Overbeck greeted Yankees reliever Kelvin Perez with a two-run home run in the sixth inning Wednesday, sparking the Lehigh Valley IronPigs to a 5-2 victory and delaying Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre’s bid to win the International League North IRONPIGS Division for at least another day. That achieveYANKEES ment can happen as soon as today, if the Yankees defeat Lehigh Valley at 7:05 p.m. or if Pawtucket drops one of its doubleheader games against Gwinnett. But not Wednesday. “We’ve been playing good baseball for a number of days now,” said Lehigh Valley manager Ryan Sandberg, whose IronPigs remained 11⁄2 games behind Pawtucket for the IL wild card playoff spot. “That feels good.” It felt even better for the IronPigs watching 36-year-old veteran Scott Elarton pick up his first victory in 102 days on short rest. After the Yankees surged to a 2-1 lead against him in the second inning, they managed just three more hits the rest of the night – a remarkable feat for the IronPigs, considering their scheduled starter, Tyler Cloyd, was promoted to the parent Philadelphia Phillies to make a start for the ailing Cole Hamels on Wednesday night. But Elarton stepped in a day before his expected start and held the Yankees at bay long enough for the IronPigs to rally.

Matt McGloin is excited to have more Though the foundation of Penn State’s new offense comes from the New England responsibility under center this season. Patriots’ pass-heavy scheme, starting tailback Bill Belton should have a big role.

Lions weigh in on offense’s new playbook By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

When asked about it this summer, nearly every Penn State player on offense said the new playbook was noticeably thicker. Garry Gilliam actually went and weighed the thing. “Just our summer camp playbook weighed five pounds itself,” the junior tight end said. “And that’s just summer. No spring stuff or anything. It’s a lot more complex and things change within plays. The playcalling is more complex, too.” Naturally, the Nittany Lions aren’t about to go into detail about what makes up those five pounds. The playbook will make its debut on Saturday against Ohio. But it could look radically different a week later down at Virginia. Bill O’Brien has repeatedly referred to

After an alleged case of arson damaged Plains’ press box and concession stand in June, the Yankees planned the Little League Takeover, which earned it a Golden Bobblehead nomination. “What I was really proud of is how everybody in our organization and in the Plains Little League organization came together in such a short time period, took the tragedy and

The right way to overcome a wrong decision

A

ll the wrong people got punished. When the NCAA handed down such severe sanctions against this Penn State football team, the governing body of college sports essentially persecuted the innocent. It is why a crowd of more than 108,000 strong is expected to show up in support of this Penn State football team when the 2012 season opens Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Because what the NCAA did to Penn State opened some eyes. By the time Penn State had bowl games taken away for the next four years and all its victories for the past 13 seasons and the number of scholarships drastically reduced, all the main participants who played a part in the Jerry Sandusky scandal were already gone. The current kids at Penn State were penalized just for being there. They had no role, or even a clue, a monster like the school’s long-ago defensive coordinator Sandusky was molesting kids he brought on campus for years. “That’s grotesque, what happened,” Penn State senior fullback Michael Zordich said. Those children suffered through lifealtering abuse. But this group of Penn State players were equally innocent in this matter. Yet, they wound up absorbing the full brunt of the punishment decreed by the NCAA. Wrong place for them, wrong time. But in no time, they were rallying nearly in unison with one another, displaying the kind of marvelous heart and resiliency that made Penn State so proud of its football team in the first place. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” said Penn State offensive tackle Donovan Smith. “It’s bringing us closer together.” No time to sulk They could have collectively complained about getting a raw deal, that taking postseason play and all title hopes away from Penn State’s players wasn’t fair. But life isn’t fair. New Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien knows that as well as anyone. His first son is afflicted with a rare brain disorder that doesn’t allow him to walk or talk. So O’Brien knows you don’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself during paralyzing circumstances, you find ways to deal with them. His way to handle this demoralizing ban is to make sure his team’s spirit never sinks down. “Coach O’Brien, he’s joking around, running around with the guys. Getting after it,” Zordich said. Mainly because this is no time for Penn State to sulk. “Coach O’Brien’s been the guy who’s kind of been the glue for this university,” Penn State fifth-year senior linebacker Michael Mauti said. At a time when most of the country half-expected Penn State to be coming apart, the players have held fast to the idea they can make it through their most trying season together. “These kids are ready to go,” O’Brien said, and that was all the way back near the start of preseason camp. He talked about displaying team toughness, but his players already displayed a will molded by steely resolve. They were sentenced to obscurity, only to become examples of strength and perseverance that make college football such a significant showcase. Paul Sokoloski is a Times Leader sports columnist.

Phillies fall in Cloyd’s debut The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, Matt Harvey had another sharp outing and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Wednesday night for their fourth straight win. The Mets have won five straight in Philadelphia and seven of eight overall this season. Harvey (3-3) allowed two runs and six hits, striking out six in 61⁄3 innings. He also had an RBI single. The rookie has a 2.76 ERA in seven starts. Tyler Cloyd (0-1) was decent in his major league debut filling in for Cole Hamels, who was scratched from the start because of a gastrointestinal illness. Cloyd allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. Pirates 5, Cardinals 0

PITTSBURGH — Pedro Alvarez stayed hot, blasting his 26th homer of the season and driving in three runs as Pittsburgh rolled to victory over St. Louis. The third baseman, who hit two homers on Tuesday, continued his season-long dominance of the Cardinals. His three-run shot in the third gave him seven home runs and 23 RBI in 15 games against St. Louis this year as Pittsburgh moved within one game of the NL’s second wild card spot. Padres 8, Braves 2

SAN DIEGO — With their new owners watching, Chase Headley and San Diego beat Atlanta for a ninth win in 10 games. Headley hit a two-run single and left-hander Eric Stults won his fourth straight decision as the Padres took two of three from the Braves, who lead the NL wild-card race.

Reds 6, Diamondbacks 2

PHOENIX — Chris Heisey hit two of Cincinnati’s four home runs, including the tying two-run shot in the seventh inning, to rally the Reds to victory over Arizona. Dioner Navarro’s solo shot two batters after Heisey’s first blast put Cincinnati ahead, Brandon Phillips added a tworun homer in the eighth and Heisey capped the scoring two outs later. Dodgers 10, Rockies 8

DENVER — Joe Blanton pitched effectively into the eighth inning for his first win with Los Angeles and A.J. Ellis hit his first career grand slam in a win over Colorado. Hanley Ramirez, another mid-season acquisition by the Dodgers, also homered in his second straight game to help the Dodgers withstand a late rally. Nationals 8, Marlins 4

MIAMI — Bryce Harper homered twice for the first time in his career and first-place Washington snapped a fivegame losing streak by beating Miami. Harper hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning and added a solo homer in the fifth, giving the rookie 14 this season. CHICAGO — Mike Fiers tossed 7 1-3 solid innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 win over the Cubs on Wednesday, their eighth straight victory against Chicago. Giants 6, Astros 4

HOUSTON — Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer and Joaquin Arias drove in two with a triple to help the San Francisco Giants to a 6-4 win over the Houston Astros.

Toronto finally solves Sabathia to top Yanks NEW YORK — Yunel Escobar hit a two-run homer, three doubles and drove in five runs as Toronto beat the New York Yankees 8-5 Wednesday, ending CC Sabathia’s five years of dominance over the Blue Jays. Escobar had a go-ahead RBI double in the third. His homer against Sabathia in the sixth gave the Blue Jays the lead again and his two-run double off Joba Chamberlain in the ninth secured Toronto’s first series win since July 27-29. J.A. Happ (3-1) overcame a season-high five walks for the win and Casey Janssen pitched a perfect ninth for his 17th save. Sabathia (13-4) was undefeated over his last nine starts against Toronto — 8-0 with a 2.48 ERA — since the beginning of his Cy Young Award season of 2007 with Cleveland.

Rangers to snap a four-game losing streak. After dropping the last two against the AL-West leading Rangers by one run, the Rays avoided the three-game sweep. Harrison (15-8) allowed seven runs and 12 hits in 5 1-3 innings. He took a no-hitter into the seventh and permitted two hits in eight shutout innings in his last outing Friday night against Minnesota. Athletics 8, Indians 4

CLEVELAND — Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer and five Athletics pitchers combined to beat the Indians. Oakland took over the AL wild-card lead by one game over Baltimore with its 11th win in 13 games as Travis Blackley (5-3) gave up two runs over 5 2-3 innings. Ryan Cook got four outs for his 13th save.

White Sox 8, Orioles 1

Royals 1, Tigers 0

BALTIMORE — White Sox rookie Dylan Axelrod took a three-hitter into the eighth inning and Chicago spoiled the Baltimore debut of Joe Saunders, scoring seven runs off the left-hander. Gordon Beckham had three hits and three RBIs to help Chicago snap a five-game road losing streak. Alexei Ramirez went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and scored twice for the White Sox, who will seek a split of the four-game series on Thursday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Bruce Chen allowed four hits over a season-high eight innings, and Eric Hosmer’s infield single in the fourth drove in the only run in the Royals’ victory over the Tigers. The last time Chen (10-10) lasted eight innings was last September, in his final two starts of the year. The veteran left-hander hadn’t even gone seven in his past 11 outings.

NEW YORK — Preparing for what she knew would be her last professional tennis tournament, Kim Clijsters — four-time Grand Slam title winner; mother of 4year-old Jada — devoted her effort and energy to the U.S. Open. Family time needed to wait a tad longer. “She was like, ‘Why don’t you come with us to go out, go for a walk?’ I’m like, ‘Mama’s almost done,”’ Clijsters said Wednesday after her singles career ended where she wanted it to, just not the way she hoped. “So, yeah, I think she’s going to be excited to kind of have her mom around more, on a more regular kind of basis.” Little Jada’s gain is the tennis tour’s loss. Clijsters lost 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) to 18-year-old Laura Robson of Britain in the second round of the U.S. Open, and will head into retirement after she finishes playing doubles at Flushing Meadows. “It’s been an incredible journey, and a lot of dreams for me have come true because of tennis. As a little girl, I got Christmas rackets under the tree and outfits of Steffi Graf and Monica Seles, and I would want to wear them to bed, I was so excited,” Clijsters said. “So for me to have been able to have been a part of women’s tennis, and on top of women’s tennis for so many years — you don’t think

“He got the call 10:30 this morning that he’d be the starter a day earlier than planned,” Sandberg said. “He’s a true professional. “It was a much-needed win for the team, for him.” The Yankees touched up Elarton – just off the disabled list after suffering a pulled hamstring – for a couple runs when Cole Garner doubled home Francisco Cervelli in the bottom of the second inning and rode home on Ramiro Pena’s single. But Elarton lasted five innings while improving to 6-11 with his first win since May 16. “I really don’t think in those terms,” Elarton said. “I’m pretty flexible, pretty laid-back. I’ve had rougher stretches, pitched way worse than that many times.” Juan Morillo pitched score-

about it when you’re in it; you’re kind of on automatic pilot. ... Now that I think about it, it’s been a crazy rollercoaster at times, as well.” She walked away from the sport once before, in May 2007, then returned after a hiatus of two-plus years. Now 29, the Belgian insisted this season that she means it this time, and decided the U.S. Open would be her final tournament. “It’s the place that has inspired me so much to do well and to do great things. It’s hard to explain sometimes why,” Clijsters said,

her face flushed and her eyes welling with tears. “This completely feels like the perfect place to retire,” Clijsters told the spectators at Arthur Ashe Stadium, many of whom rose to shower her with a standing ovation. “I just wish it wasn’t today.” The loss Wednesday ended Clijsters’ 22-match winning streak in New York, encompassing titles in 2005, 2009 and 2010, plus Monday’s victory. “I just wasn’t good enough at the end of the match,” Clijsters acknowledged.

less ball through the next two and Joe Savery and Jake Diekman slammed the door during the final two innings. That impressive pitching gave the IronPigs a chance to fight their way back. They did it with pure power and timely pokes. Pete Orr rocketed a solo homer in the top of the second, and after Yankees starter Mike O’Connor departed with two outs in the sixth and a 2-1 lead, Overbeck launched a deep drive over the left field wall for a tworun homer that put the IronPigs ahead, 3-2. The IronPigs didn’t stop there. Michael Spidale started the seventh inning with a single off the glove of diving Yankees third baseman Pena, then surprised the Yankees with a delayed steal of second base. It paid off when Spidale was able to score on Andres Blanco’s bloop single just over third base. And Blanco eventually scored

when rehabbing Philadelphia outfielder Nate Schierholtz, recovering from a broken toe, hoofed out an RBI single for the last run of the game. But it was more than enough to put Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s planned celebration on hold, and get the IronPigs thinking about holding one of their own. “A much-needed win,” Sandberg called it, “and a much-needed start for us.” Lehigh Valley

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees’ event highlighted a myriad of contributions from the community. “So many individuals from Plains and surrounding communities sent checks in anywhere from $500 to $10, but just the fact that they did it was incredible,” Gartley said. “Also the other Little Leagues in the area in Districts 16 and 31 have been incredibly generous in sending donations to the league to try to help us out.” Plains received approximately $30,000 in donations from the community, including businesses such as Dominic’s Cafe, Hun’s West Side Cafe and Sheehans Pharmacy. “We set up a separate account, and we’re using that for things

The donations also helped Plains Little League with the profit it lost during the baseball season. “The money that was raised has been terrific because we weren’t operating with a stand toward the end of the season and during the all-star weeks, which is a time when you generate a lot of revenue,” Gartley said. “We ultimately because of donations were able to run a makeshift stand.” Plains Little League also received help from Miracle Construction. “Miracle Construction got in contact with the league right away and they donated the labor and material to remediate a great deal of the fire damage,” Gartley said. “They got the stand in terrific shape for us.” The insurance company estimated the fire did about $40,000

worth of damage. “That doesn’t include the electrical part of it as well as the contents including the refrigerators and the fryers and the sound system and channels for the scoreboard,” Gartley said. “It’s incomplete, but we know it’s going to far exceed $40,000, I would imagine.” Despite the damage, Plains Little League will have a fall baseball league comprised of a minor, major and two teener baseball teams. “The biggest thing we’ve been trying to do as the board and the officers of the league is to try and minimize to the greatest extent possible the impact on the boys and girls who play baseball and softball in Plains,” Gartley said. “Because of the generosity of the individuals and businesses I think in large part we’ve been able to do that.” Plains Little League will also look to make upgrades to its

field. “One of the light posts is on a wooden pole and they’re out of code now,” Gartley said. “When you do them they have to be on metal poles so we’re looking into the cost of replacing that because we’ve had the electrical damage.” Plains Little League also has to repair its restrooms because of the fire so Gartley said the organization plans to make them handicap accessible. “We wanted to try to make them wheelchair accessible because we hosted a challenger baseball game at the field maybe four or five years ago,” Gartley said. “The kids loved it so we wanted to try to get the field into a position where we could do more of that.” Despite the issues that still remain, Gartley is optimistic about Plains Little League’s future. “I’m confident because of the generosity of people that we’ll recover from this,” Gartley said.

PATERNO Continued from Page 1B

48 counts of abuse in June. Forty-four pages of Paterno’s file, spanning incidents from 1976 to 1995, weren’t released. The FBI, which didn’t indicate what period or topic the unreleased pages cover, cited exemptions concerning unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and revealing a confidential source. The voluminous file depicts Paterno as careful, level-headed and intimately connected to the years-long investigations, down to suggesting the involvement of gamblers after the first threat arrived in October 1976. One of the letters to a Paterno staffer in December 1977 mocked the FBI’s involvement and Paterno’s gambling theory. “So you think I am a gambler —the only gambler is Paterno —he is gambling with your life … I want to make him suffer. I want it to be on his concious (sic) that he was responsible for a tragic accident to you.” It was signed “Crank.” Paterno died from complications of lung cancer on Jan. 22, 2012 after coaching Penn State’s football team from 1966 to 2011. Earlier this year, former FBI director Louis J. Freeh criticized Paterno, among others, in his report on Penn State’s response to Sandusky’s child sexual abuse. The report said it is “reasonable to conclude” that Paterno and other top Penn State officials “repeatedly concealed critical facts” relating to abuse allegations against Sandusky. The report criticized those officials for exhibiting a “striking lack of empathy for Sandusky’s victims by failing to inquire as to their safety and well-being.” Years earlier, Paterno’s concern over the letter threats fills the FBI file. Signed “A Very Bitter Father,” a 1976 letter told one of Paterno’s staffers: “He is responsible for me loosing (sic) my son and I plan on putting him in the same position I am —brokenhearted —because you lost someone close to you. … I am out to get Joe Paterno and I will go to all extremes to do it.” Another letter demanded Paterno depart Penn State by Jan.1,1977 or face the loss of a member of his family, staff or team. A third letter, directly to Paterno said his son chose Penn State because of the coach but got a “bum deal” and “lost interest in everything and went from bad to worse.” The writer said if something happened to Paterno’s family or others, it would be like Paterno “pulled the trigger.” The “Bitter Father” letters reference dissatisfaction over the treatment of a former Penn State student, possibly a football player, who left the university after two years. They arrived within days of a phoned threat to Three Rivers Stadium’s security office during Penn State’s game with Pittsburgh that a gun was in the stadium and Paterno would be shot on national television.

More anonymous letters targeted a female member of Paterno’s staff. One letter, postmarked in Pittsburgh, said the female staffer’s life was “in Joe Paterno’s hands.” “The above letters are very upsetting to Coach Paterno,” an FBI memo from Dec. 16, 1977 said. Paterno shifted theories, according to the file, hinting at an unnamed person who he didn’t bring on staff when hired as head coach in 1966. Nothing came of the idea. Paterno asked his staff to review past Penn State football players for potential suspects. At Paterno’s director, a now-deceased assistant, John Chuckran, provided the FBI with names of people suspected of harboring “ill feelings” toward Penn State. A national letter of intent for an ex-Penn State player was pulled to compare his handwriting with those in the letters. There wasn’t a match. One Penn State assistant coach suggested the FBI search for leads at Panucci’s Barber Shop in McKees Rocks, Pa., describing it as a clearinghouse for local sports information. Paterno declined local police protection, according to the file, and, at one point, urged authorities to let him sit down with the person behind the letters if he was apprehended and help him. A recording device and trace were placed on Paterno’s home phone in 1977 and 1978. An unsigned, detailed letter of apology eventually arrived from a man who blamed his wife’s death and son’s drug use and alcoholism on Paterno. That didn’t stop the threats. In blue ink, an unsigned note to Paterno said the author would “never be satisfied until I do away with you or some member of your family” and the writer “can’t get him out of my mind, for 365 days a year for what he did to my son.” Paterno promptly turned over the letter, as with the others, to the FBI, taking care to insert it in a cellophane sleeve to preserve any fingerprints. In November 1980, late Penn State television play-by-play man Ray Scott received a letter asserting Paterno would be killed within three months. The investigations were closed in 1981 without apprehending a suspect. The file briefly details a series of bizarre phone calls Paterno received in 1994 and 1995 from a Portland, Ore., man one FBI report described as “very delusional.” The man claimed he wanted to make Paterno “a billionaire,” hire him to coach one of his seven football franchises and educate Paterno on his “nutritional knowledge” to cure cancer and other diseases. The calls spurred a detailed nation-wide investigation by the FBI and Penn State’s Department of University Safety. The reports concluded the caller posed no threat.

N.Y. wins hardly Super rematch The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Adele Ojomo took another step toward making an NFL roster and helped the New York Giants and New England Patriots avoid a coach’s worst nightmare in the preseason finale — overtime. Ojomo’s sack and forced fumble set up a 32-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes with 1:03 to play and the Giants defeated the Patriots 6-3 on Wednesday night in the final warmup for the regular season for the teams that met in the Super Bowl in early February. This one was hardly as interesting as the title game, but the Giants (2-2) once again scored late to win. Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas rumbled 12 yards with the fumble following Ojomo’s strip-sack against Brian Hoyer, giving New York the ball at the Patriots 17. It set up Tynes’ second field goal and it will force the coaching staff to once again think about. Ojomo, a rookie free

agent out of Miami, who has caught their attention with a team-high four sacks. “The coaches have got to evaluate the film,” Ojomo said. “I think the (strip-sack) will work in my favor, but there’s a lot of different phases of the game they have to evaluate.” Ojomo plans to be confident heading into Friday’s final cut to the 54-man roster. “It would be a great honor to be a Giant,” Ojomo said. "They’re a first-class organization. Aside from the high taxes and high rent, it would be great to be a Giant. I’ll be confident Friday, I won’t be nervous. They have to make tough decisions, so you have to go out and do what you need to do to make it not so tough for them.” Steve Gostkowski kicked a 20-yard field goal in the second quarter for the Patriots (1-3), who rested almost every starter. “Everybody who played got an opportunity to show us what

The 2010 All-Pro joined Washington just two days after being released by Baltimore. Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, who both might have a shot as the Redskins’ starting running back job because of injuries, accounted for all three Washington touchdowns. Helu ran for 90 yards and two scores after missing two games with sore Achilles, while Royster ran for 44 yards and a TD after missing last week’s game with a sore right knee.

The Super Bowl champion Giants will kick off the NFL season next Wednesday at home against Dallas. The Patriots will open on the road at Tennessee on Sept. 9. Eli Manning and the majority of the Giants’ starters played just over a quarter, with receiver Hakeem Nicks making his preseason debut. New England rested their starters with only fullback Eric Kettani and defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick being the only starters on the depth-chart to play. After collecting only four first downs and 69 total yards in the first half, the Giants took the second-half kickoff and went 64 yards in 13 plays with Tynes tying the game with a 34-yard field goal.

Packers in need of new backup for Rodgers The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Graham Harrell doesn’t have a Twitter account. His car stereo is tuned to what he calls “soft, easy music,” not sports talk. “I really don’t get on the Internet at all. I go home, I watch FOX News. The only newspaper I pick up is the USA Today (for the) crossword,” the Green Bay Packers’ oft-criticized backup quarterback said in advance of

Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs at Lambeau Field. “I mean, I don’t really listen or read or follow much media. I don’t know why, I just don’t.” That’s probably a good thing. The Packers are 18 months removed from winning the Super Bowl, but there has been a lot of hand-wringing this summer about the defense and the guy behind reigning NFL MVP Aa-

ron Rodgers. That guy used to be Matt Flynn, who departed as an unrestricted free agent in March for a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks. Harrell enters the finale having completed just 32 of 63 passes for 261 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for a passer rating of 53.7. The offensive line has been shaky in protecting him (five sacks) and the

A R O U N D

young wide receivers haven’t helped, either. Last week, Harrell completed just 5 of 12 passes for 26 yards (49.3 rating) in the Packers’ victory at Cincinnati. “Who are the other guys (Harrell is) playing with? You have to have 11 guys on the same page, and if you don’t, it makes it tough,” said offensive coordinator Tom Clements. “The games are important, but you’re not just evaluating on the game.”

Replacement refs will open season With no new deal in place with the officials’ union, the NFL will turn to Plan B for Week 1. By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — The NFL will open the regular season next week with replacement officials and said it was prepared to use them “as much ... as necessary” afterward. Replacements will be on the field beginning Wednesday night when the Dallas Cowboys visit the New York Giants in the season opener, league executive Ray Anderson told the 32 teams in a memo. Negotiations are at a standstill between the NFL and the officials’ union. The NFL Referees Association was locked out in early June and talks on a new collective bargaining agreement have gone nowhere. Replacements have been used throughout the preseason, with mixed results. In 2001, the NFL used replacements for the first week of the regular season before a contract was finalized. The speed of the game and the amount of time starters are on the field increase exponentially for real games, making the replacements’ task more challenging. Anderson, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, told the clubs in a memo Wednesday that the replacements will work “as much of the regular season as necessary,” adding that training with each crew will continue. The NFL noted it has expanded the use of instant replay this year to include all scoring plays and turnovers. Officiating supervisors will be on hand to assist with game administration issues. “We are not surprised, based on Ray Anderson’s statements ... that the NFL was not going to reach out to us,” NFLRA spokes-

man Michael Arnold said. “However, this is consistent with the NFL’s negotiating strategy which has been ‘take it or leave it and lock them out.’ It now appears the NFL is willing to forego any attempt to reach a deal in the last seven days before opening night.” The NFL Players Association, which went through a 4 1⁄2- month lockout last year before settling on a new contract, expressed disappointment about the decision to use replacements. Colts safety Antoine Bethea said there is a feeling of solidarity with the officials. “They’ve got to do what they’ve got to do, and we were in a similar situation a little while ago,” Bethea said. “So you can’t fault those guys for doing what they have to do.” Anderson said the sides remain considerably apart on economic issues, including salary and retirement benefits. He also told teams there is a substantial difference on operational issues. “One of our key goals in this negotiation is to enhance our ability to recruit, train, and replace officials who are not performing adequately,” Anderson said. “We believe that officials should be evaluated and performance issues addressed in the same way as players, coaches, club management and league staff. We have proposed several steps to accomplish this, including having a number of full-time officials and expanding the overall number of officials.” Anderson told the teams that the replacements have “undergone extensive training and evaluation, and have shown steady improvement during the preseason.” Arnold disagreed. “The referees want to get back on the field,” Arnold said. “Our members have been engaged in extensive preparations and are ready to go.”

Concussion experts hopeful new campaign will help kids

Latest Ryan tactic: Leadership training

By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin wasn’t trying to invent a catchphrase, just something his players would remember when getting into the murky waters of what is and what isn’t a legal – not to mention safe – hit. The Steelers coach came up with one anyway. Now the team and one of the nation’s leading concussion experts hope Tomlin’s “don’t hit the head, don’t use the head” will help educate young players on how to avoid dangerous collisions that lead to significant injury. “This campaign has the possibility of tremendous change for our youth and high school football players,” said Dr. Micky Collins, the clinical and exec-

utive director of UPMC’s sports medicine concussion program. The initiative, considered the first of Tomlin its kind by an NFL team, will include a packet sent to various middle school, high school and youth football programs throughout Western Pennsylvania. The packet will contain a fact sheet about the UPMC concussion program, a letter from Tomlin and Collins and posters for locker rooms with the phrase splashed across a picture of the coach. “If these words are really followed, I guarantee we’re going to prevent a lot of injuries,” Collins said.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — It wasn’t quite group therapy or singing “Kumbaya” around a campfire. But Rex Ryan is hoping to build a better bunch of lockerroom leaders. The New York Jets coach excused 19 veteran players, including Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes, from practice Wednesday so they could attend what he called a “leadership training” seminar. “We just had such a great experience as a coaching staff, and I’m hoping the players have the same kind of experience we had,” Ryan said. “It was great. It was something I felt all of us gained some things out of. You saw a lot about each other.”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Picking through the opening buffet of the season By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

The opening weekend of the college football season is sort of like an all-you-can eat buffet. Usually, most of what’s laid out doesn’t look particularly appealing, but there is a lot of it. You’ll walk away full if not totally satisfied, and there’s always a chance to find a few really tasty dishes, such as No. 9 South Carolina on the road against feisty Vanderbilt on Thursday night, No. 24 Boise State visiting No. 13 Michigan State on Friday night, and Georgia Tech at No. 16 Virginia Tech on Monday night. The chef’s special comes Saturday night, when the center of the college football world will be Arlington, Texas. No. 8 Michigan plays No. 2 and defending national champion Alabama at Dallas Cowboys Stadium. No

hyperbole necessary, and you certainly won’t get any from Nick Saban. “I think first games are always really exciting for everyone. We are really looking forward to the opportunity that we have to play against a really good, well coached Michigan team,” the Crimson Tide coach said. “It’s always exciting to have, for us at least, to have a challenging game in the opener. I think that really excites the players throughout the year and not just this week, so we are looking forward to the opportunity and the challenge that we have.” Yes, Saban allows for excitement. Cold, calculated and brutally efficient excitement. The Wolverines and the Tide have only played only three times and never before in the regular season, so there is plen-

ty of reason to get pumped for the opener, even though Michigan is nearly a two-touchdown underdog. After an offseason filled with Penn State scandal and BCS changes, it’s finally time to play some games. And make some picks: TODAY • No. 9 South Carolina (minus 6 1/2) at Vanderbilt Commodores are no longer SEC pushovers ... SOUTH CAROLINA 21-10.

ALABAMA 34-14. • North Texas (plus 43) at No. 3 LSU No Honey Badger necessary ... LSU 48-10.

Fall is in the air this morning under a clear blue sky with jackets being worn at the bus stop. Uninterrupted sunshine will quickly dissolve the morning chill, followed by a strong warmup this afternoon. With skies remaining clear into Friday, a west wind will bring much warmer temperatures our way Friday, perhaps reaching 90 here in town. A leading edge of slightly cooler air will arrive early Saturday, then a flow off the ocean will set up by Sunday to bring more cloudiness and showers by late in the day. Rain from Isaac could arrive here late Monday into Tuesday, but with light winds and no flooding. -Tom Clark

NATIONAL FORECAST: Isaac will continue to weaken and move slowly northward. The slow movement will result in areas of heavy rain across the central Gulf Coast and over the lower Mississippi Valley. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible over much of the Southeast and Florida as well. Monsoonal moisture will lead to widely scattered thunderstorms over the Southwest.

By SARA POKORNY

THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2012

spokorny@timesleader.com

ring back the pencils, books and teachers’ dirty looks because back-to-school season is here, with many starting classes this week. While the thought of going back to school might not be ideal for many students, there is one part of the process they can enjoy, and that’s shopping for the new year. There are many aspects to consider for those attending kindergarten through college, and it can be daunting. As Gloria Chase of Trucksville put it, she looks at the morning of a clothes-shopping excursion for her 9-year-old daughter Tracey as “preparing for war.” “Every year, same thing,” she said. “She’s picky about clothes; she’s picky about what kind of notebook she wants; she’s picky about everything.” Hopefully parents like Chase can rest easy, as we’ve sought out the top trends in each of four categories that should cover going back to school from every angle: technology, fashion, dorm décor and supplies.

ACADEMIA ESSENTIALS

TOP IN TECH Technology changes so quickly it’s almost impossible to keep up. This year, two particular pieces of tech are catching the eyes of many students. E-readers are huge, and none packs a more wellrounded punch than the Nook Tablet, sold at Barnes and Noble. “You get the most bang for your buck with this one,” assistant store manager Sean Yustat said. “You can search the Internet, check emails, download educational apps and games and books for all ages.” Nook Tablet One of the major selling points, Yustat said, is that the price is reasonable for a back-to-school budget, starting at $175. Apple’s MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will dig a little deeper into pockets, running along the lines of $800 to $1,500, but they have a lot to offer. Macs are notorious for keeping viruses at bay, being user-friendly and having a smooth operating system, ensuring those homework assignments get done on time. A bigger workload is something Shawn Swim, 19, of Bethlehem, found comes with college, but he’s discovered a way to manage it. His favorite app for his iPad is the iPlanner, which is also compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch. “The workload goes up a lot in college, and it’s really easy to forget to do something,” he said. “The iPlanner lets you put assignments in, then sends alerts when they’re due. Hopefully this means this year I won’t be late with anything.”

The essentials for school can sometimes seem boring. There are only so many times you can pick up a pack of No. 2s or an armful of wide-ruled notebooks and get excited. Thankfully, school supplies are more fun to pick out nowadays. Little ones can find all types of school supplies adorned with favorite characters, from Hello Kitty notebooks to Disneythemed pencils. This year’s big hit falls right in line with the box office: superheroes. Patrick Cosgrove, 6, of Wyoming can’t wait to take his Batman backpack to school. “It’s gray, and it’s got the bat symbol on it,” he said, the excitement clear in his voice. “Batman is my favorite.” Though Cosgrove got his backpack from Pottery Barn, the local Toys ‘R’ Us is stocked with such book-toting bags. Laptops are a hot back-to-school item, sometimes literally. “If I want to sit in bed and use it, it gets really hot on my legs,” said Jeremy Roth, 20, of Moosic. “I never thought until this year to just buy one of those lap desks.” Portable lap desks can be found at Best Buy, Staples and Office Max and come in many shapes and sizes. Some are colorful with a simple design, such as the MyDesk Lap Rest from Best Buy in pink and green hues or neutral black. Others have fans, such as the Targus Chill Mats sold at Staples that come with single or dual cool-air blowers.

DRESS THE PART

DORM LIVING

Fashion changes from season to season, but some staples will always help carry students through the year. As far as footwear is concerned, Vince Ginocchetti of Gino’s Shoe Store in Dallas is excited for the Bogs he’s about to stock. “They’re a multiple-season boot, meaning they’ll carry you through rain and snow,” he said. “They keep sockless feet warm in below 30-degree weather, and they’re also waterproof.” Girls of all ages can look to a twist on traditional jeans to add color to their wardrobe this year. Colored jeans are all the rage, particularly those in yellow, green and red. Stores such as Old Navy, Express and Macy’s carry the eye-catching pants. Guys like 21-year-old Samuel Averill of Sparta, N.J., have found the value of a good button-up shirt. “I can go out to the bar now, so it’s nice and easy to throw on a pair of jeans and a button-up and look good,” he said. “I also realize I’ve got to look more like an adult. I’ll probably be going on job interviews soon, so it’ll be good to have a bunch of button-ups to wear.”

Dorm rooms all look the same at first move-in, furnished with the essentials, everything colored neutral. Just how does a student turn that into a room of his or her own? A good set of sheets for the bed, of course. “In such a small space, that’s the first thing your eye goes to when you walk in the door,” Christina Villarreal, 19, of Wilkes-Barre said. “It can add so much color, so I always try to go with some sort of bright and funky pattern.” Department stores such as Sears, Macy’s and Bon-Ton offer various styles and colors for men and women. And for the rooms themselves, Roni Nawrocki, 18, of North Pocono has found a simple design solution that not only looks good but serves a purpose. “Closets can get messy, so the girls decided the best way to deal with that would be to use a curtain rod and curtains as a sort of closet door,” she said. “That way it looks nice, but it hides what’s behind it.” Other ways to add personal flair to a room, that also serve a purpose, are fans, such as the Honeywell Chillout Compact fan that comes in different colors at Target, the Timex color-changing Honeywell Chillout alarm clock sold at Toys ‘R’ Us, and the Hampton Bay Floor Compact fan Lamp with multi-colored light covers, sold at Home Depot.

WE ASKED SOME AREA STUDENTS TO TELL US WHAT BACK-TO-SCHOOL BUY THEY’RE MOST EXCITED ABOUT

‘Closets can get messy, so the girls decided the best way to deal with that would be to use a curtain rod and curtains as a sort of closet door. That way it looks nice, but it hides what’s behind it.’ Roni Nawrocki, 18, King’s College

‘I got these really cool black sneakers that have really bright colors on them, like orange and yellow. I also got a curling cone for my hair.’ Annabella Stack, 10, Wilkes-Barre

‘I’m really excited for my new Batman backpack. It’s gray, and it’s got the bat symbol on it. Batman is my favorite.’ Patrick Cosgrove, 6, Holy Rosary School, Duryea

‘I’m going to get a MacBook Pro to help me do my schoolwork.’ Natasha Stack, 12, Wilkes-Barre Academy

Woman is unable to stop her older husband’s habitual skirt-chasing Dear Abby: I am 20 years younger than my husband. I am also attractive and sexually available to him. We have a great relationship except for one thing. I can’t trust him! I have caught him emailing women he met at work, inviting our neighbor to go with him on a motorcycle ride and heard many stories about him asking women on dates. But the worst was when I found out he was calling a woman every day and going to her house when I was at work. When I confronted him he said nothing sexual happened. Why does he feel he has to have other women? I really believe some men are cheaters no matter what.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Oh, yeah — I’m his fourth wife. He cheated on the others, too. How can I make him want only me? — Cheated On in the Midwest Dear Cheated On: You can’t. It may give you comfort to know that the behavior you have described has nothing to do with you or your level of desirability. It is COMPULSIVE. You were naive to think if you married a serial cheater that he would be faithful to you. The only person who can “make” him think differently is him, and before that can happen, he will have to realize he needs to change.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I have been a single mother for seven years raising a wonderful 16-year-old daughter. She is an honor student, works part time and is very mature. I am dating an older man, “Gary,” who has grown children. Gary feels my daughter is old enough to spend a couple of nights a week alone in our house, while I spend the night with him. I live in a safe neighborhood, but the idea of leaving her alone makes me very uncomfortable. This is causing a rift between Gary and me. He feels I am having a hard time “cutting the apron strings.” Is he right? — Single Mom in the Midwest Dear Single Mom: Inform Gary you are not ready to “cut the apron strings” because you don’t want your

CRYPTOQUOTE

relationship with your daughter to turn to shreds. Although you say your daughter is mature, you are responsible for her safety and welfare until she turns 18. And that includes setting a good example for her. Dear Abby: I’m expecting my first child in three months and I am definitely showing. I work in a retirement community, and every day one or more of the residents makes it his or her business to tell me I’m “just getting SOOO BIG!” I find their comments rude. What’s the appropriate response to people who make unwelcome comments about my size? I want to tell them that stating the obvious is unnecessary. They wouldn’t comment about someone’s size who wasn’t

pregnant, so why is it acceptable in my case? — Expecting in Maryland Dear Expecting: Although you find the comments unwelcome, I’m sure the residents are only trying to be friendly and join in the excitement of another life coming into the world. They are not meant to be insulting. All you should do is smile, pat your tummy and say, “Not according to the sonogram!” and move on. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You care about happiness, but your responsibilities have come first lately. There is a way to make happiness your No. 1 priority and still show up for all of your obligations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Marketers know that you can position the exact same product in many ways. What you present today will seem exciting, fresh and new. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Something in you is restless. Look for inspiration; it won’t be hard to find it. Also, you’ll spark a connection with someone new and enjoy the good feelings that you create together. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t have to form your personality to match the job at hand. Better results will be yours because you dared to be yourself, trusting the world to appreciate your intelligence and wit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One reason why fashion magazines show new styles monthly is because familiarity is the enemy of glamour. Fresh excitement is part of the attraction equation, and you won’t ignore its importance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Do not approach another person with only a complaint. Have a solution handy, as well, or don’t approach at all. You are one of the best problem solvers of the zodiac now, so this should be easy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have to risk rejection in order to experience the sensation of belonging. Don’t be surprised if you walk up to a group and hear, “It’s about time you joined us.”

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even if you’re working alone today, the worst play you can make is to forget that you’re part of a team. You’ll be successful when you consider how others will be affected by what you are offering, creating or doing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Give someone else the opportunity to learn a task by standing by and watching as this person completes the job in what is very likely to be about twice the amount of time it would take you. Be patient. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may try to hide the truth in order to spare someone’s feelings, but your honesty has a way of shining through. So your best bet is to find what’s genuinely good about your scene and focus there. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A stall in the action may very well be exactly what allows you to shift into a higher gear and take off rocket-style. So don’t try to push your way through this. Take it easy! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t learn much from one who teaches you in broad terms. Everything worth learning is in the details. The teacher who can give you specific help will open new pathways in your brain. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). This year, you’ll find new ways to measure your success, and you’ll increase your happiness level exponentially. There’s a jump in your income next month. A relationship blossoms over the holidays. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 19, 24 and 18.

Local Auto Dealer Continues To Help Credit Distressed Customer

By R. J. Molinaro

Rich LaRussa, F&I manager for Fairway Chevrolet in Hazle Township, has incorporated a unique program to help credit challenged people purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle. LaRussa said, “ This program is working great! We’ve helped so many people.” Many customers are under the impression that they owe too much on their current vehicle loan or that past credit issues would hinder

them from getting into a new vehicle. Ninety percent of the time customers are paying interest rates higher than what’s available today. Fairways unique system specifically targets distressed credit customers. That is, no minimum credit score is required. A minimum gross income of $1,500 and only $1,000 down is necessary. This can be accomplished with cash or ACV transfer or both. Rich LaRussa said, “We’re helping hundreds of folks with poor credit get into

for these financial situations. Therefore, LaRussa points out that funding will be distributed to qualified customers on a first come, first serve basis. LaRussa goes on to explain that if someone has had bad credit and is paying 18% APR to 21%APR, we may be able to cut those rates down to as low as 4.9% APR. I would encourage anyone paying these kind of rates to come in and talk to me as soon as possible. “They could be saving a lot of money.”

Buying Certified Pre-Owned…. It’s The Way To Drive! By R. J. Molinaro

RICHIE MOLINARO Marketing & Adv. Manager

the car of their dreams and with our new system we are confident we can help even more.” Most customers are in loans that are 14% APR to 15% APR or even higher in some cases. With today’s current rates we can possibly shave $20, $30, even $40 off a customers payment. “We’re especially excited about helping those customers that have had credit issues.” Explained, La Russa. We’ve partnered with several lending providers. However, funding is limited

Many of us may remember when buying a used car ranked right up there with a trip to the dentist. But times have changed and buying a used car need not be the horror it once was. Today’s consumer has so much information (at least, the information is available), as to make the experience of buying a used car far less stressful. This transformation will occur, however, only if you obey a rule taught to every firstgrade student: DO YOUR HOMEWORK. KBB Lists the 10 steps you should consider when purchasing a pre-owned vehicles. I strongly agree with these 10 steps. Step 1. Find Out How Much You Can Afford Step 2: What’s the Right Car for You? Step 3: Find Your Car’s Value Step 4: Contact and Communication with the Seller Step 5: Get Both a History and a Safety Report on the Car Step 6: Conduct A Thorough Walk-Around Step 7: Conduct a Thorough Test Drive Step 8: Go the Extra Mile to Assure Quality Step 9: Negotiate Your Best Private Party Price Step 10: Negotiate Your Best Dealer Retail Price. However, for my money I would consider one additional step that’s to consider a certified preowned. It’s my opinion that a certified pre-owned delivers more satisfaction and certainty than any ordinary

used vehicle. Consider GM’s Certified Pre-Owned Package, or Subaru’s Certified PreOwned Plan:

Owner Care is a vehicle benefits package that raises our already great coverage to new heights. It’s why our vehicles deliver more satisfaction and certainty than any ordinary used vehicle. 2-Year/30,000-Mile Standard CPO Maintenance Plan Starting from the delivery of your vehicle, we provide you with our exclusive 2 years of 30,000 miles of standard vehicle maintenance – including: • Oil Changes: based on your vehicle’s Oil Life Monitor system • Tire Rotations • Multi-Point Vehicle Inspections (MPV) Two Warranties You get a 12-Month/12,000Miles Bumper to Bumper Warranty (that’s four times better coverage than Chrysler and Ford), plus our 5-Year/100,000Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. 24/7 Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation 3-Day/150-Mile Customer Satisfaction Guarantee 3-month trials of OnStar® and SiriusXM Satellite Radio® All of our digitally equipped vehicles are eligible for 3-month trail of OnStar

Directions & Connections® including Onstar Turnby-Turn Navigation. With OnStar, you’re never far from help.

The Stuff

including an enhanced exterior appearance with front and rear sport fascias, stylish jewel-like fog lamps, roof rails and chrome exhaust tips. And with eight playful colors to choose from, Spark can have a look that fits any personality, from soft-spoken to live-outloud. Take your pick from the Spark exterior color palette and expect interior accents to match. Your car, your style The athletic Spark stance adds to the ride and handling of the vehicle, but it adds even more to the look. Spark offers two wheel types depending on model: a 15-inch 5-spoke Silver-painted wheel which comes standard and a 15-inch machinedface aluminum wheel with gray-painted pockets which comes on the 2LT, allowing you to further personalize your ride in the city.

Fully equipped for fun Affordable doesn’t mean boring. Spark may have a starting price lower than a limbo stick after five rounds, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t offer all the tech and gadgets that make buying a new ride so euphoric. Of course you want alloy wheels, power windows and air conditioning. And you’ll get it, standard on any model. What about some stuff you can brag about? Well, Spark 1LT and 2LT were designed to include everything worth flaunting. We’re talking Chevrolet MyLink with a 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen that keeps all your favorite music and entertainment within easy reach. The sixspeaker sound system is ready to blast tunes from the three-month trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio. You can even access your personal playlists, Pandora® stations or Stitcher SmartRadio™ favorites by connecting your compatible smartphone to Chevrolet MyLink using Bluetooth® wireless technology or the USB port. Don’t forget to download the OnStar® RemoteLink™ mobile app to your compatible smartphone to keep track of important vehicle information, send turnby-turn directions to your Spark and more.

What you bring to the party

Fun is now definitely what you bring to the party with up to 31.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo space or room for three passengers to comfortably come along for the ride. Passengers can say goodbye to the awkward 2-door dance, bending and twisting under the seat belt to get into the back seat. The Spark mini car, with a door for every seat, won’t be having that. Spark makes it comfortable for everyone with its convenient accessibility and flexible cargo space in the back. Weekend getaways, crosstown adventures, shopping expeditions — Spark is your all-access pass to the city. Test Drive the Chevy Spark at Fairway Chevrolet in Hazle Township!

The Stares

Colors that match your mood or your shoes Spark puts a new spin on sporty exterior design with funky twists, featuring colors that are as unique as Spark drivers. Looking for the whole enchilada? Look no further than the Spark 2LT, which brings on all the good stuff
