Romney takes spotlight to make his case By DAVID ESPO and ROBERT FURLOW Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Mitt Romney launched his fall campaign for the White House Thursday night with a rousing, remarkably personal speech to the Republican National convention and a primetime TV audience, proclaiming that America needs “jobs, lots of jobs” and promising to create 12 million of them in perilous economic times. “Now is the time to restore the promise of America,” Romney declared to a nation struggling with 8.3 percent unemployment and the slowest economic recovery in decades. Often viewed as a distant politician, he made a

The hall erupted in cheers when he reached the stage and waved to his shouting, chanting supporters before beginning to speak. “I accept your nomination for president,” he said, to a roar of approval. Then he pivoted into personal details of family life, recounting his youth as a Mormon, the son of parents devoted to one another, then a married man with five rambunctious sons.

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- A former Holy Redeemer football coach charged in May with producing child pornography is facing new charges in Michigan for allegedly tricking people into performing sex acts over Skype and then sending the images to others on the social networking site Facebook. Joseph Ostrowski, 29, of Wilkes-Barre, Ostrowski who remains jailed while awaiting trial in the earlier case, was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury in Grand Rapids, Mich., on one count of cyber-stalking. Ostrowski was charged by Pennsylvania authorities in May with one count each of sexual exploitation of children and interstate communications of threats. Prosecutors said that between Dec. 31, 2011 and April 18, 2012, Ostrowski enticed a minor to perform sexually explicit conduct, which he then transmitted via an electronic device. He also used that device to threaten to ruin the person’s reputation with the intent of extorting money. According to the new indictment, between March 2010 and Dec. 24, 2011 Ostrowski accessed the Facebook accounts of other persons without their knowledge, then “took over” the accounts, blocking the true holder from regaining access. Ostrowski, while in Pennsylvania, then used those accounts to contact people in East Lansing, Mich., posing as the true account holder. He persuaded the East Lansing residents to engage in sexually explicit acts over Skype, a video-telephone service that operates over the Internet. The indictment says Ostrowski recorded the acts without their knowledge. He then used the compromised Facebook accounts to send images to other Facebook accounts and to inform the alleged victims he had done so.

WILKES-BARRE – Bracketed by his predecessor and the man who takes his place until a permanent replacement is appointed, Wilkes-Barre Area School District Superintendent Jeff Namey offered 50 district administrators and central office staff workers one last crack at their retiring boss. “I’m going to give each of you a

chance to say what you don’t like about me,” Namey said during a modest farewell party in the administration building conference room Thursday morning. “You get 4 seconds.” Namey sat at the head of the conference table for what likely will be his last time after 42 years in the district, 16 as superintendent. To his left sat Leo Solomon, who served as superintendent for 17 years before Namey. To his right was Bernard Prevuznak, who was appointed interim superintendent until the board picks a replacement for Namey. Prevuznak has applied for the

post. Both men praised Namey’s dedication to the district. Prevuznak chided Namey for being so passionate about the job that his temper could flare. “But no matter how big his passion/temper was, his heart was bigger,” Prevuznak added, citing Namey’s willingness to go out of his way to help employees in times of need.

Mother: Dad wanting to see son led to fight A court hearing on a permanent restraining order is scheduled for Tuesday. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A fight that injured three people outside Wilkes-Barre Area’s Daniel Flood Elementary School on Wednesday began over a father wanting to see his son on the first day of classes, the boy’s mother said Thursday. Jessica Ardono, 23, of WilkesBarre, blamed her son’s father, Jonathan Crespo, and his girlfriend whom she does not know with prompting the melee just before 9 a.m. as children were arriving for the first day of school. Ardono filed a restraining order in Luzerne County Court against Crespo, 23, of Harrison, N.J. “I was dropping off my child off at school and I bumped into

his father in front of the school,” Ardono said Thursday. “He asked where my child was and I told him he was already in Ardono school.” Ardono said Crespo, who could not be reached for comment on Thursday, became upset. She said she ignored a text message from Crespo earlier Wednesday morning stating he wanted to see his son before school. “He started going off and the principal asked him to leave,” Ardono said. “I went into the building to avoid a conflict.” Ardono said Crespo did see his son inside the school. As Ardono was leaving with a friend, she said, Crespo’s girlfriend pulled up in a vehicle and began fighting. Ardono alleged Crespo ran out of the school and punched her uncle, John Ramos, in the face.

AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER

John Ramos suffered facial injuries during a fight outside Daniel Flood Elementary School on Wednesday.

“He assaulted me for no reason,” Ramos, 53, said. “I ended up going to the hospital for a broken nose and I have two bone factures in my face. My arm is hurting and my knees are bruised.” Ramos said he was returning to his Wilkes-Barre home and encoun-

tered Crespo and another woman arguing with Ardono in the middle of North Washington Street. He stopped his car and told Crespo not to harm Ardono when Ardono was pushed into his vehicle. Ardono said she suffered a head injury when she struck the vehicle.

During the fight, Ardono said, her 76-year-old grandmother suffered scratches on her arms. “She was trying to protect me,” Ardono said. “It was a big mess. I was trying to avoid conflict because it was my son’s first day of school.” Ramos said he tried to talk to police about the alleged assault but has not been able to contact the investigating officer since he was released from Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township on Wednesday night. According to an application for the protection from abuse order, Ardono stated Crespo approached her “in a very aggressive way after punching a family friend in the face, causing him to bleed in both nose and mouth.” President Judge Thomas Burke signed the restraining order prohibiting Crespo from temporarily contacting Ardono. A court hearing on a permanent restraining order is scheduled on Tuesday.

By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

Nine area residents were among 3,000 American Red Cross volunteers providing Gulf Coast residents with food, shelter and other assistance as Tropical Storm Isaac continued an inland assault on Thursday. The last of the volunteers – six from the Wyoming Valley and three from Lackawanna County – deployed Thursday and Friday. They were stationed in Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana by Monday, said Sherry Williams, executive director of the Red Cross of Wyoming Valley.

The chapter’s two Emergency Response Vehicles also were deployed with two certified drivers, said Red Cross Readiness and Response Manager Will Hontz. The ERVs can deliver food and beverages to disaster victims at shelters. Or they can provide “mobile feedings” to residents in their neighborhoods, Hontz said. The ERVs can also deliver supplies such as cleanup kits, rakes, shovels and tarps – items distributed in flood-struck towns in Luzerne County following Tropical Storms Irene and Lee in August and September 2011. Hontz said some volunteers are trained in sheltering, which includes making sure disaster victims at shelters keep informed and have their basic needs met. Others are medically trained and still others have mental health training. Hontz said some Gulf

Blocks of unintentionally aged cheddar — 28, 34 and 40 years old — go on sale.

MILWAUKEE — A recently discovered block of eastern Wisconsin cheddar cheese that dates back to the Nixon presidency will be sold for $10 per ounce. Edward Zahn, 73, was in Z’s Cheese Shoppe’s walk-in cooler last month, preparing to shut down his Oconto store. He pushed aside stacks of cheese to reveal several wooden boxes that had been overlooked for years. Inside were blocks of unintentionally aged cheddar — 28, 34 and 40 years old — that, some experts say, might comprise the oldest collection of cheese ever assembled and sold to the public. “It just got overlooked,” Zahn told the Wisconsin State Journal of the 40-year-old cheese. “It looks just like the others except it’s just a lot sharper. It’s got character.” Ken McNulty, who owns the Wisconsin Cheese Mart in Milwaukee, bought about 20 pounds of the 40-year-old cheddar and 120 pounds of 34-year cheddar. He declined to reveal the price he paid.

floods, resources are stretched. “We can’t make these missions happen without the funds,” Williams said, noting that donations can be made by mail, cell phone texts and online. Hontz also said more volunteers are needed, either for local assistance or for three-week national deployments. Volunteers must fill out applications in person and after a background check would have to undergo “at least a good day’s worth of training.” “People tend to forget, when it’s not their area, what it’s like (to be a disaster victim). But even when we’re not working on a national disaster, we’re here working locally,” Hontz said.

SCRANTON — The city has secured a $6.25 million loan to cover its current payroll and some back wages. Scranton officials closed Thursday on the loan from Amalgamated Bank. City Solicitor Paul Kelly said that the money will cover Friday’s payroll of $1.1 million. Kelly said it will also allow payment of $750,000 in back wages. In June, the mayor temporarilyslashedthepayofabout 400 city workers to minimum wage, saying the city was nearly broke. Last week, City Council approvedafinancialrecoveryplan. The loan will be repaid with a $2.25 million state aid package and earned-income taxes to be collected in coming months.

This 28-year-old block of cheddar was in one of three boxes of unintentionally aged cheddar recently discovered in Milwaukee.

Cheese is often sold by the pound, but McNulty plans to sell the oldest cheese by the ounce so more people can get a taste. “Because there’s so little, we didn’t want to sell blocks of it on the Web,” he told The Associated Press. “We just wanted people to sample it.” He said an ounce would be just enough for two people to nibble on. He suggests sampling the vintage cheese by itself, not with a cracker or other food that would compete with the flavor. He said he found out about the cheese when Zahn’s son called, told him his father was closing up shop and offered to sell some inventory. McNulty, long a fan of Zahn’s cheesemaking expertise,

said he wanted everything. McNulty sampled the 40-yearold and 28-year-old blocks, pleasantly surprised that the milk in the cheese hadn’t soured. He still hasn’t tried the 34-year-old cheese, and acknowledges that he can’t assume it will be edible. He plans to cut it open on Oct. 6 as part of a cheese-tasting event at his store. Wisconsin, the nation’s leading cheese producer, last made headlines for aged cheese in 2010 when Tony Hook, the coowner of Hook’s Cheese Co. in Mineral Point, sold1,600 pounds of 15-year-old cheese for $50 per pound. Cheese connoisseurs described that cheddar as mature, rich, smooth and decadent.

Swine flu warning issued

Geisinger Health System issued a warning Thursday that a new strand of swine flu, H3N2v, that has been reported nationwide puts Northeastern Pennsylvania at particular risk this time of year when county fair season is full swing. “At this time it appears that the only way this swine flu can be contracted is by direct contact with livestock, and at county fairs, this is a regular occurrence,” Dr. Lisa Esolen, director, infection control at Geisinger, said in a news release. “Because of this, it is important that parents and children are educated about proper prevention and recognition.” Esolen said the most effective prevention tactic is regular washing and sanitizing of hands, especially after coming in contact with livestock. It is also important for people to avoid eating, drinking and putting things in their mouths while in the same area as livestock. “The threat of swine flu should not deter families from participating in the fun and relaxation of local fairs,” Esolen said.

LOCAL WVW debunks late-start rumor Work on the State Street Elementary will continue as school opens. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

LARKSVILLE – Contrary to rampant rumors, classes will begin Tuesday in the Wyoming Valley West School District, including at the expanded State Street Elementary Center. With work continuing day and night at State Street, district Superintendent Chuck Suppon said Thursday he expects to receive a certificate of occupancy from the project engineering firm and Larksville borough to open the facility on time. “It’s going to happen,” Suppon said of meeting the scheduled opening date. “And our top

priority is the safety of our students and employees.” Tom Festa, project architect for A&E Group of Plains Township, said he expects the certificate of occupancy to be issued this morning. “We should have it Friday and school will open Tuesday as scheduled,” Festa said. The $28 million project has expanded the elementary center from 50,000 square feet to 150,000 square feet, said Ken Harner, project manager for Miller Brothers Construction of Schuylkill Haven. Between 120 and 150 workers are on the job putting the final touches on the building. In recent days the parking areas have been paved, sidewalks completed and classrooms stocked. Suppon discounted rumors that the district would postpone

WILKES-BARRE – City officials say they’re confident the purchase of five Ford Focus vehicles for the code enforcement and health departments will save taxpayers money by reducing mileage reimbursements paid to employees who also use their own vehicles on the job. The cars, which were put into service around the fall of 2011, were part of an eight-vehicle purchase that also included three Ford Crown Victoria patrol cars for the police department. The city paid a total of $155,390 for the vehicles through a lease-to-own agreement with Milham Ford, according to Drew McLaughlin, the city’s administrative coordinator. The police cars were valued at roughly $24,000 each, while the Focuses were valued at approximately $14,000. The city’s purchase of vehicles recently came under public scrutiny after council approved the purchase of a nearly $28,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee for use by Ken Pahler, a supervisor in the Department of Public Works. Several residents questioned whether the purchase would cost the city more than if it reimbursed Pahler for mileage for using his personal vehicle. Pahler never kept records of his mileage, so there’s no way to determine if savings will be achieved. A review of mileage reimbursements paid to code inspectors over the past two years shows the city may save money with the purchase of the Ford Focuses. The records show the cost of the cars has been offset by a significant reduction in the amount of mileage reimbursements paid to six code inspectors through July of this year compared to 2011 and 2010. Code inspectors utilize the city vehicles whenever possible, but some usage of private vehicles is still required because three vehicles are shared among the entire department, McLaughlin said. The city paid a total $10,719 in mileage reimbursements in 2011 and $9,582 in 2010 to the six code officers. So far this year, just $2,585 has been paid out. If mileage remains stable the next five months, it will pay roughly $4,400 by the end of the year -- or roughly $6,300 less than last year. The records show Mike Simonson received the most for mileage in 2011, $4,113. He was followed by Joanne Semenza, $2,337; Marc Murphy, $1,928; Carol Smith, $1,836; and Frank Kratz, $505. Fred Pape did not receive any mileage reimbursement. McLaughlin said the city pays $2,400 each month for the five Focuses and three Crown Victorias. Based on the val-

MinSec prisoner charged

State police in Hazleton on Wednesday filed escape charges against a prisoner at MinSec – the minimum security community corrections center in downtown Hazleton. Police said James Eugene Rought, 24, departed MinSec for work on Tuesday at 4:30 a.m. and did not report back to the facility after work. He was currently incarcerated on forgery charges, police said. The center, at the intersection of Broad and Church streets in Hazleton, has been a source of controversy and concern for several years. Earlier this month a Chamber of Commerce official said there have been dozens of MinSec inmate-related crimes and/or escapes in the area since the facility opened in 2008 and at least seven just since January.

Hazleton appealing ruling in tree removal lawsuit City had trees removed from private property to clear airport flight path. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Attorneys for Hazleton have appealed a Luzerne County judge’s ruling that denied their request to dismiss the city from a lawsuit alleging city officials improperly authorized a tree company to remove timber from private

property. Attorney John Solt of the Slusser Law Firm contends a judge erred when he ruled the city was not protected from being sued by the Political Subdivision Claims Act, which provides immunity to municipalities for actions by their employees except under limited circumstances. The lawsuit, filed in 2010, alleges two city employees at that time, Robert Dougherty and Alan Wufsus, directed William and David Burger to remove trees from property owned by attorney

Pasco Schiavo without Schiavo’s knowledge or consent. The trees were removed in 2008 in order to clear a flight path for the Hazleton Municipal Airport. Schiavo filed suit against the Burgers, alleging they damaged his property and caused it to lose value. The Burgers then joined the city as defendants. Schiavo’s suit seeks more than $75,000 in damages for the loss of the timber, costs to restore the property and loss of value to the land.

Solt filed objections to the suit, arguing the city was immune. Senior Judge Charles C. Brown allowed the case to continue against the city, saying it was too early in the litigation to determine if the city had a viable immunity defense. Although he denied the motion to dismiss, Brown permitted Solt to appeal his ruling to the state Superior Court, finding there was a legitimate question of law that could resolve the suit should an appellate court agree with Solt’s position.

Controversy aside, W-B Area fills posts Teachers, aides, a crossing guard and coaches are hired at a special school board meeting. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The narrowly defeated effort to promote wives of two board members as teacher aides may have dominated Wilkes-Barre Area School Board’s special meeting Wednesday, but the board also worked through three pages of staff appointments along with those two controversial teacher aide positions. The board approved all appointments except the proposal to make Mary Claire Corcoran and Sandra Elmy teacher aides

at 32.5 hours per week. They are the wives of board members Robert Corcoran and Louis Elmy. Both men noted they were not on the board when their wives were first hired in the district years ago, but the vote split 4-4 with each man abstaining on the vote for his own spouse. A tie vote means the motion fails. Other than those two posts, the board agreed to make the following appointments: • Kelly Paul, Kristen Hudack, Edward Rabel, Barbara Stefanoski, Jennifer Jones, Kelly Polacheck, Jana Michael, Stephanie Frank and Megan Sweeney as teachers. • Jessica De’Angelo and Samantha Page as long-term substitute teachers. • Joseph Gallamo, Christine Zak and Joanne Keeffe as 32.5-hours-per-week “pa-

Storm ravages Louisiana with flooding

WASHINGTON

By CAIN BURDEAU and MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press

A federal court has ruled against a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November. A three-judge panel in Washington ruled Thursday that the law imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor” and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty. The ruling comes in the same week that South Carolina’s strict photo ID law is on trial in front of another threejudge panel in the same federal courthouse. A court ruling in the South Carolina case is expected in time for the November election.

NEW ORLEANS — Isaac hovered over Louisiana for a third day Thursday, shedding more than a foot of additional rain that forced authorities to hurriedly evacuate areas ahead of the storm and rescue hundreds of people who could not escape as the rapidly rising waters swallowed entire neighborhoods. The huge spiral weather system weakened to a tropical depression as it crawled inland. The storm’s excruciatingly slow movement meant that Isaac practically parked over low-lying towns and threw off great sheets of water for hours. “I was blindsided. Nobody expected this,” said Richard Musatchia, who fled his water-filled home in LaPlace, northwest of New Orleans. Inside the fortified levees that protected New Orleans, bursts of sunshine streamed through the thick clouds, and life began to return to normal. But beyond the city, people got their first good look at Isaac’s damage: Hundreds of homes were underwater. Half the state was without power. Thousands were staying at shelters. And the damage may not be done. Even more rain was expected in Louisiana before the storm finally drifts into Arkansas and Missouri. Isaac dumped as much as 16 inches in some areas, and about 500 people had to be rescued by boat or high-water vehicles. At least two deaths were reported. Five feet of water poured into Musatch-

Good kidney tossed in trash

A Texas surgeon is reviewing a living-donor kidney transplant program suspended by an Ohio hospital where a donated kidney apparently was put with medical waste instead of going to the intended recipient. The University of Toledo Medical Center suspended the program and hired the consultant to evaluate its transplant procedures following the Aug. 10 incident. The review was expected to begin Thursday. State health officials also are looking into the incident at the request of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Meanwhile, UTMC has notified 975 patients and potential organ donors and recipients that they may need to make other arrangements for services typically provided through the program. The facility has put two nurses and an administrator of surgical services on paid leave but won’t explain exactly why. FRESNO, CALIF.

The National Park Service was warned in 2010 that efforts should be stepped up to inspect for rodents in Yosemite and prevent them from entering areas where people sleep, a report obtained Thursday states. The disclosure came just days after a Pennsylvania visitor became the second park guest confirmed to have died of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Public health officials were able to confirm both victims had stayed at the park’s Curry Village in Yosemite Valley. The 2010 report issued by the California Department of Public Health was commissioned by the park service. “Inspections for rodent infestations and appropriate exclusion efforts, particularly for buildings were people sleep, should be enhanced,” it said.

Others were picked up by National Guard vehicles, school buses and pickups. Katrina was more powerful, coming ashore as a Category 3 storm. Isaac was a Category 1 at its peak. Katrina barreled into the state and quickly moved through. Isaac creeped across the landscape at less than 10 mph and wobbled constantly. David Newman was frustrated that the government spent billions of dollars reinforcing New Orleans levees after Katrina, only to see the water inundating surrounding regions. “The water’s got to go somewhere,” he said. “It’s going to find the weakest link.” The sudden call for evacuations so long after the storm made landfall provoked a debate about whether anyone was to blame.

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State has signed off on an agreement that outlines the changes it will make and the new procedures it will adopt in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. Leaders of the university, the NCAA and the Big Ten Conference inked the agreement this week, fulfilling one of the school’s obligations under a consent decree. It calls for the selection of an integrity officer for athletic programs and describes the duties of former U.S. Sen. Ge- Mitchell orge Mitchell, who will act as the independent monitor overseeing its compliance with sanctions. Penn State previously agreed to pay a $60 million fine, lose football scholarships and be banned from postseason play for four years. The 13-page agreement includes oversight provisions as well as training and reporting requirements involving team monitors, the athletic director and a new Athletics Integrity Council. It took effect immediately. The school agreed to adopt mechanisms designed to ensure staff, players and certain others “do not permit their collective or individual reverence or deference towards any individual, team or other aspect of the athletics department to undermine” aspects of NCAA, Big Ten and university rules. The disclosure program involves setting up a hotline so people can report issues or pose questions, anonymously if they wish. “Penn State is a world-class institution that prides itself on excellence in academics and athletics,” university President Rodney Erickson said in announcing the agreement, adding that the school hopes to “emerge from this process as a model for compliance.” Penn State agreed to implement certain recommendations set forth in the university-ordered report by former FBI director Louis Freeh, which concluded high-ranking school officials covered up abuse allegations involving Sandusky to avoid bad publicity. Penn State’s football team opens its season Saturday with a home game against Ohio University.

TEHRAN, Iran — In a sweeping message that Iran is on the wrong side of Syria’s civil war, Egypt’s new president urged the world Thursday to support the rebels seeking to topple Bashar Assad and suggested that Tehran could risk a deepening confrontation with regional powers over the fate of the regime in Damascus. The stinging comments by President Mohammed Morsi — making his first visit to Iran by an Egyptian leader since the 1979 Islamic Revolution — was another blindside blow for Iran as host of an international gathering of so-called nonaligned nations.

His speech, delivered while seated next to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, prompted Syria’s delegation to walk out of the gathering. Iran’s leaders have claimed that the weeklong meeting, which wraps up today, displayed the futility of Western attempts to isolate the country over its nuclear program. But Iran also was forced to

endure criticism from Morsi and another high-profile guest, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who cited concerns about Iran’s human rights record and called its condemnations of Israel unacceptable. Iran counts on Syria as a strategic outlet to the Mediterranean and a conduit to its anti-Israeli proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon.

LOS ANGELES — Jack Wyard is 92 and sees no reason to surrender his car keys, not to mention the freedom they give him to get up and go anywhere he wants, whenever he wants. After all, he said, two years ago he got a perfect score on his written test to renew his license. “I don’t know what to suggest for anyone else, but I’m still comfortable on the highway and I enjoy driving,” the retired sales manager from Los Angeles said Thursday. A day earlier, a 100-year-old man who was attempting to back his Cadillac out of a grocery store parking lot struck and injured 11 people, nine of them children.

the forefront again a debate over how old is too old to keep driving. With the American Automobile Association reporting that 10,000 Americans are turning 65 every day, it’s a debate that will only intensify in coming years. “I don’t think there should be a set age because people age differently,” said Ruth Nadel, 98, who was in her mid-80s when she decided it was time to hand over the keys to someone else. California is one of 28 states that have special requirements for older people renewing driver’s licenses. While younger California drivers with good driving records may automatically be granted two five-year license renewals, anyone over 70 must come to a DMV office and take a written test and eye exam.

Campaign button vanishing Digital age putting end to old tradition By PETER PRENGAMAN Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Eugene Ola was on a street corner hawking some political buttons with phrases like “Believe in America” and featuring photos of a smiling GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan. But most passersby simply smiled and kept on walking, barely looking at the piece of cardboard he carted around with 50 buttons fastened to it. In this era of high-tech and non-stop social networking, the campaign button has lost its luster as a central way to promote candidates and their causes. Politicians and their parties instead push their messages with a relentless barrage of television ads, emails and mobile phone alerts, while many voters express their opinions

via tweets, Facebook posts and blogs. “Maybe they are just going out of fashion,” said Ola, 60, who lives in Washington, D.C., and travels the country selling paraphernalia at political gatherings, football games and medical conferences. Buttons extolling the Republican ticket and tearing into Democrats haven’t disappeared entirely, but they are far from ubiquitous. The days when many delegates were seen littered with partisan messages from seemingly head to toe appear to be long past. Today, attendees roaming the convention halls are more likely to have an iPhone strapped to their belt or a Bluetooth hanging from one ear than a button with Romney’s picture fastened to their lapel. “We have had pictures of our

buttons taken a thousand times,” said Jane Morton, 46, who traveled with her 19-yearold son from Kansas City to sell buttons that say “Show 44 the door,” and depict a foot kicking a cartoon image of Obama. “I guess people are just into digital media these days.” Campaign buttons have been part of American politics since the days of President George Washington. Some of the first buttons were sewn on clothes, or worn similar to a necklace. Those eventually gave way to metal buttons with fastening pins. These days, the most modern form is the digital variety — “buttons” decorating candidate websites, emails to potential voters and on social networking sites. To communicate their messages, campaigns have fully

moved to online media, said Evan Cornog, a presidential historian and dean of the school of communication at Hofstra University. Increasing urbanization and longer commutes have also likely had a role in diminishing the usefulness of buttons, he said.

“Who is going to see your button on the Long Island Expressway?” he said. Even if fewer people wear them and their effectiveness is muted, vendors say they don’t have to sell many to turn a profit because production costs are low.

TAMPA, Fla. — Republicans delivered a scathing indictment of President Barack Obama’s national security policy, although the Democrat’s aggressive approach has often been compared to that of his GOP predecessor, George W. Bush. Defense and foreign policy, largely footnotes during the first two days of the Republican convention, were at the core of speeches by Sen. John McCain, Obama’s presidential rival in 2008, and Condoleezza Rice, Bush’s secretary of state. Neither uttered Obama’s name Wednesday night in their primetime remarks, but the target of their criticism was clear. “For four years, we’ve drifted away from our proudest traditions of global leadership,” McCain said. “We’ve let the challenges we face, both at home and abroad, become harder to solve.” He faulted Obama for projected cuts to defense spending, a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan and an unwillingness to use more U.S. military force to stop the months of bloodshed in Syria. Rice acknowledged the nation’s weariness from the two long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that Bush started but said: “If we are not inspired to lead again, one of two things will happen: No one will lead and that will foster chaos, or others who do not share our values will fill the vacuum. ... We do not have a choice. We cannot be reluctant to lead — and one cannot lead from behind.” Republicans have seized on the words “leading from behind,” which an unnamed Obama adviser used in a New Yorker article, even though the idea is to empower others while avoiding the perception of unilateral U.S. action. National security has barely warranted a mention at the convention as jobs and the economy remain the dominant issues for the electorate. The short shrift also reflects a political reality of the past four years — Republicans have made little headway in challenging Obama’s aggressive security policies. In opinion polls, Obama gets high marks for his handling of foreign policy and edges out Romney on the issue. An NBCWall Street Journal poll earlier this month of registered voters found 54 percent approval for the president’s work while 40 percent disapproved.

But the unemployment rate, 8.3 percent in July, is not a record. The jobless rate reached 9 percent in 1975, and 10.8 percent in 1982, topping the rate of 10 percent in October 2009. During the worst years of the Depression, more than 20 percent of the labor force was idle. No one disputes that this was the worst economic crisis since the Depression and that this recovery has been the longest to take hold. ROMNEY’S NEW WEBSITE: “Governor Romney’s time at Bain Capital was spent fixing struggling businesses and giving new businesses a shot at success. From 1984, when Romney co-founded the firm, to February 1999, when he left to lead the Olympics, Romney

helped save thousands of jobs at companies that were in trouble. And the businesses Romney helped start while at Bain Capital employ more than 100,000 people today.” THE FACTS: Bain Capital undoubtedly turned around failing companies and made profits in the process. But Bain’s record during Romney’s tenure is more complicated than Romney’s new website, SterlingBusinessCareer.com, makes it out to be. The website lists only a handful of firms that he helped build, fix or grow to profit, including household names

like Staples office supplies and the Brookstone gadgets store. Yet notably absent are references to other companies that laid off workers or foundered on his watch — which Democrats have repeatedly underscored in their attacks on Romney. Georgetown, S.C.,-based GS Industries was one such company that Bain bought in the mid-1990s. In 2001, the steel mill filed for bankruptcy and was tied Republican vice presidential nominee, Rep. Paul Ryan.

up in lawsuits from local residents alleging the plant polluted their historic town. Romney blamed the bankruptcy on Chinese dumping cheap steel into the U.S. market, although Bain ultimately realized more than $30 million on its investment, according to financial documents. RYAN: Obama “created a bipartisan debt commission. They came back with an urgent report. He thanked them, sent them on their way and then did exactly nothing.” THE FACTS: It’s true that Obama hasn’t heeded his commission’s recommendations, but Ryan’s not the best one to complain. He was a member of the commission and voted against its final report.

After 14 years, inmate granted new trial Former Hazleton resident was convicted of sexually assaulting girl, 6, and boy, 4. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A former Hazleton resident convicted nearly 14 years ago of sexually assaulting two children will be retried after a state court declined prosecutors’ request to deny a new trial. Gerald Delbridge, 61, was convicted in May 1999 of aggravated indecent assault and other offenses related to the alleged assault of a 6-year-old girl and 4year-old boy who are related to him. In December 2011 the state Superior Court granted a request for a new trial, after Delbridge alleged his attorney was ineffective for failing to object to faulty jury instructions. The Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office appealed that decision to the state Supreme Court, which ruled in June it

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – Police are searching for two men involved in a burglary on South Franklin Street. Police responded to a report of criminal mischief at 464 S. Franklin St at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday and discovered a bent door jam and glass knocked out of the door. Officers reviewed security camera footage with building security and saw two males take an elevator to the second floor, steal a 46-inch flat-screen TV and flee out an exit door. The suspects are described as a white man, about 6 feet tall, wearing black shorts, a white t-shirt and a white head covering; and a black or Hispanic man about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, wearing black jeans and a black head covering. Call police at 826-811 with any information.

would not hear the appeal. Senior Judge Joseph Augello on Thursday scheduled Delbridge, who will have served 14 years in prison on Sept. 3, to stand trial again on Oct. 2. A pretrial hearing was scheduled for Sept. 20, and Augello set Delbridge’s bail at $100,000. The judge said Delbridge may post 10 percent cash, real estate or hire a bondsman. It was not clear Thursday if Delbridge will be able to post that bail amount. He said he would live with his aunt at her home in Bucks County if released from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility. He has adamantly maintained his innocence, arguing the children’s testimony was influenced by improper interviewing techniques. A Luzerne County judge in 2010 granted Delbridge a hearing to determine if the children had been improperly influenced. The state Superior Court later upheld that ruling, and went a step further, granting Delbridge a new trial based on its finding his trial attorney, Thomas Pavlinic, was ineffective in representing him.

Delbridge’s current attorney, Joseph Yeager, said Thursday his client has no prior criminal record other than misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and has nothing to gain since he has already served well over the minimum of his original 10-to-22-year prison sentence. Yeager indicated a plea agreement may be reached in the case before the trial date. Delbridge said he had previously received his GED, had worked at Walmart for 11 years and has had no misconducts in prison. “For the last 10 years, I’ve been on the honor block, (where the prison) gives you clearance to work outside prison,” Delbridge said. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts said she was asking the judge to set a high bail amount because of the seriousness of the charges Delbridge faces. She said that although the victims in the case are now adults that live outside of Pennsylvania, they still fear retaliation and contact from Delbridge.

It’s death for torture killer Jury agrees man, 22, must die for torturing, killing mentally disabled woman.

By JOE MANDAK Associated Press

GREENSBURG — A man who pleaded guilty to murder in the torture-killing of a mentally disabled woman has been sentenced to death. A Westmoreland County jury announced its verdict Thursday evening against 22year-old Melvin Knight. A prosecutor had said Knight deserved the death penalty because his crimes were heinous and depraved. A defense attorney had argued Knight’s relatively young age and his lack of a prior criminal record were reasons the jury should give him life in prison. Pennsylvania has executed only three people since the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. All of them chose to end their appeals. The last person executed was a man who murdered two women. He was executed in 1999. The closing arguments by defense attorney Jeffrey Miller and Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck came earlier Thursday in the death penalty trial of Knight, who had pleaded guilty to mur-

der in the February 2010 killing of 30-year-old Jennifer Daugherty. The jury, which deliberated two hours, had to decide whether he would get the death penalty or life in prison without parole. Peck contended Knight deserved to be executed by lethal injection because he raped and helped torture Daugherty. “It was not just an intent to kill Jennifer Daugherty, ladies and gentlemen,” Peck argued. “There was clearly an intent to cause pain and suffering to Jennifer Daugherty.” Daugherty’s body was found wrapped in plastic and stuffed into a garbage can by Knight and 25-year-old Ricky Smyrnes, who, unlike Knight, has contested his guilt and also will face a potential death penalty when he’s tried in October. Daugherty’s hair was cut off by Knight as she was systematically tortured by Knight, Smyrnes and four others at Smyrnes’ dingy apartment in Greensburg, 30 miles east of Pittsburgh. The garbage container with her body was found wedged under a truck parked in a middle school parking lot in a snowstorm. Peck contended Daugherty was tortured for two days and then was killed because Smyrnes’ then-girlfriend, Angela Marinucci, had convinced the others that Daugherty had sexual desires for Smyrnes and Knight. Marinucci was convicted and sentenced last

year to life in prison and didn’t face the death penalty because she was just 17 when Daugherty was killed. Amber Meidinger, 22, who was pregnant with Knight’s child at the time and has since given birth, testified at Knight’s penalty trial that Daugherty was tied up with Christmas lights and tinsel, compelled to write a suicide note, then forced to drink a cocktail of human waste, bleach and prescription drugs. Meidinger is awaiting trial and faces the death penalty, too. When the vile mixture didn’t kill Daugherty, her tormentors voted that she must die, authorities said. Knight acknowledged stabbing her on Smyrnes’ orders before both men choked her and got rid of her body. Miller argued that Knight’s limited intelligence and mental health issues and the fact that Knight pleaded guilty to the murder and apologized for it in April were reasons to spare his life.

OUR OPINION: WINSTEAD TRIBUTE

Needless death, needed change

T

YLER WINSTEAD’S death is no less tragic today than when news of it first rippled through Wilkes-Barre on April 5, upsetting his classmates and stunning many in the community. Our collective response should not waver, either, despite newly released information that the fatal incident was the result of an accidental shooting rather than, as initially claimed, a driveby attack. Either way, Winstead – a bright, well-liked, 14-year-old – left this Earth far too soon. And, either way, this community faces the same lingering problems. We have too many high school dropouts and too few involved parents. Children drawn to guns, other weapons and gang-like activity. Youth-onyouth violence. Poverty and poor job prospects. Certain students dealing with emotional turmoil inflicted by bullies and cliques. Schools that harbor students lacking basic literacy skills. Festering ethnic tensions. And, of course, crime, much of it fueled by people’s drug and alcohol addictions. As a tribute to Winstead, lots of city residents earlier this year stepped forward, saying they wanted to confront these social ills in a new and comprehensive way. They participated in a grassroots undertaking called Building Bridges. They gath-

ered input from children and adults, and began devising strategies for improving their city neighborhoods. Their resolve should not be swayed by this week’s revelation about the Winstead case. The mission remains critical, his memorial incomplete. Luzerne County’s court system will deal with the juvenile, a friend of Winstead, who allegedly pulled the trigger of a .22-caliber handgun while showing it off. Police also plan to file charges today against the boy’s mother for allegedly lying to them and trying to cover up the circumstances surrounding the shooting. But fixing the underlying issues that trouble many Wyoming Valley residents and endanger our kids, that won’t be done by any government body or benevolent agency. It’s up to each of us. Do something to improve your community. Get involved. Join Building Bridges or find a volunteer role with an existing social service or community group. Stop waiting for the arrival of a magic bullet – and dreading the next deadly one.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters ...” Paul Ryan The Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee lashed out Wednesday night at the Obama administration’s inability to spur U.S. job growth and improve the employment prospects of recent college graduates.

OTHER OPINION: NASA’S MISSION

Keep right stuff in space program

W

ITH THE DEATH Saturday of Neil Armstrong, the nation has lost two of its greatest space pioneers in the past five weeks: Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon; and Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space. It’s up to America’s leaders to make sure that the qualities these two giants embodied – their leadership, their boldness, their can-do spirit, their right stuff – live on in the U.S. space program. Armstrong’s mission in 1969 was so dangerous that White House speech writer William Safire drafted a statement for President Nixon ahead of time that would laud Armstrong and fellow moon walker Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin for “laying down their lives in mankind’s most noble goal: the search for truth and understanding.” In 1983, Ride put to rest doubts about women as astroEDITORIAL BOARD

nauts when she flew as a crew member on the shuttle. Lately America’s space agency, NASA, can boast of triumphs in unmanned exploration. But its manned program has been grounded since the final shuttle mission more than a year ago. History says a robust manned program would spur breakthroughs in science and technology that would help the United States outperform its economic rivals. And the jobs associated with space – in manufacturing, engineering and technology – are the kind of high-wage positions that both presidential candidates are touting. With time running out on this year’s campaign, the candidates should end their radio silence on this key issue. America needs a space program worthy of heroes like Neil Armstrong and Sally Ride.

Leighton should resign over gas pump issue

E

ven young children shopping with their parents in a grocery store are taught that you don’t take anything unless you plan on paying for the item. If you or I decided we needed gas for our vehicle and pulled up to the city of Wilkes-Barre’s gas pump and took gas, we would be arrested on the spot. If you don’t think so, try it. Call me from the police station and let me know when you are being processed. Is the mayor of Wilkes-Barre above the basic laws of society? No! And local and state law enforcement, even though they know this to be true, are lying low. Why? Since this isn’t the first time the mayor of our city has been found to be “taking” – as, in this case, of not paying for something that isn’t free – he isn’t worthy of serving us any longer. The mayor of our city is paid close to $80,000 a year, in addition to operating a real estate company. And the man isn’t paying for gas? If we are to maintain a civilized and just society, our elected officials need to be beyond reproach in their character. Mayor Tom Leighton, do us all a favor and resign. Linda Urban Wilkes-Barre

n Aug. 9 we honored an incredible lady: Edith Stein. She was the quintessential total woman. Possessing a doctorate in philosophy, she wrote on the dignity of womanhood. She was a Jewish girl who converted to the Catholic faith and entered the Discalced Carmelite Order in 1922. She had moved from Germany to the Netherlands to escape persecution, but she was arrested and taken to Auschwitz concentration camp where she was martyred on Aug. 9, 1942. Why do I speak of Stein? Simply to preface my belief that women today have forgotten the dignity and power of being a woman. The polls are showing that President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney among potential female voters. This probably is primarily because he has promised free contraception pills and a pill to take care of possible conceptions. Plus, he has convinced women he firmly supports their belief that their bodies are their own and they can do as they wish. He seemingly has ignored constitutional religious freedom, trying to get Catholic institutions to provide that which is against its strongest beliefs. He has granted exceptions to this mandate on health care to smaller religious sects. He apparently is depending on the fact that nearly 50 percent of Americans are receiving entitlements. He is counting on them to vote for him to keep those entitlements coming, disregarding what has happened in countries that have continued this entitlement mentality. As a woman, I firmly feel that ignoring the horrible things Obama has done against life and our religious freedoms, and electing he who promises anything and only delivers more debt and unemployment, would constitute turning our backs

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com

ROMNEY Continued from Page 1A

He choked up at least twice, including when he recalled how he and wife Ann would awake to find “a pile of kids asleep in our room.” He was unstinting in his criticism of President Barack Obama, his Democratic quarry in a close and uncertain race for the White House, and drew cheers when he vowed to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. “This president can tell us it was someone else’s fault. This president can tell us that the next four years he’ll get it right. But this president cannot tell us that you are better off today than when he took office,” Romney declared. Clint Eastwood, legendary Hollywood tough guy, put the case for ousting Obama plainly moments before Romney made his entrance. “When somebody does not do the job, you’ve got to let ‘em go,” he said to the cheers of thousands in the packed convention hall. Beyond the heartfelt personal testimonials and political hoopla, the evening marked one of a very few opportunities any presidential challenger is granted to appeal to millions of voters in a single night. The two-month campaign to come includes other big moments — principally a series of one-on-one debates with Democrat Obama — in a race for the White House that has been close for months. In excess of $500 million has been spent on campaign television commercials so far, almost all of it in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Romney was often almost gentle in his criticism of Obama. “I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed,” he said. “But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.” “This isn’t something we have to accept ,” he said, appealing to millions of voters who say they are disappointed in the president yet haven’t yet decided to cast their votes for his Republican challenger. “Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, ‘I’m an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better! My country deserves better!” Romney’s remarks came on a night when other speakers filled out a week-long portrait of the GOP nominee as a man of family and faith, savior of the 2002 Winter Olympics, savvy and successful in business, yet careful with a buck. A portion of the convention stage was rebuilt overnight so he would appear surrounded by delegates rather than speaking from a distance, an attempt to soften his image as a sometimes-stiff and distant candidate. “He shoveled snow and raked leaves for the elderly. He took down tables and swept floors at church dinners,” said Grant Bennett, describing Romney’s volun-

PARTY Continued from Page 1A

Former Luzerne County Council candidate Joyce DombroskiGebhardt, of Kingston, said the “very energized” atmosphere there was “a very positive sign for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in Northeastern Pennsylvania.” She hoped Romney would “say something very much anticipated by the American voters which is that he, as our next president, will look after all of our American people, especially senior citizens and the middle class.” Kingston Mayor Jim Haggerty said he was “excited to come out and support Mitt Romney and kick off the presidential election campaign to win Northeastern Pennsylvania for Gov. Romney.” Haggerty conceded that Republican presidential candidates have an “uphill battle” in Luzerne County, but said that Romney would win the county or, at the worst, break even. “We know how to micro-target voters and get voters to the polls on Election Day.” Ed Warkevicz, treasurer of the Luzerne County Republican Party, which hosted the party, said he thinks Romney’s chances in Lu-

teer work as an unpaid lay clergy leader in the Mormon church. Following him to the podium, Ted and Pat Oparowski tenderly recalled how Romney befriended their 14-year-old son, David, as he was dying of cancer. “We will be ever grateful to Mitt for his love and concern,” she said simply. Shouts of “USA, USA” echoed in the convention hall as several Olympic medal winners came on stage, a reminder of Romney stepping in to help rescue the faltering 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. In an evening that blended the political and the personal, delegates saw a video in which his sons poked fun at him. “I can’t explain love,” Romney said. As for Obama, Romney said, “Many Americans have given up on this president, but they haven’t ever thought about giving up. Not on themselves, Not on each other. And not on America.” The economy is issue No. 1 in the race for the White House, and Romney presented his credentials as the man better equipped than the president to help create jobs. Speaker after zerne County are good. “Why? Because more and more people are waking up and realizing they don’t have a job. And it’s because of ‘Bama-nomics.’ Just from talking with people, I can tell Romney is going to do better than our last candidate four years ago because the young generation was sold a bill of goods and President Obama didn’t deliver on those promises.” Adriana Vargas, of Edwardsville, said Obama promised to cut the national debt, but it tripled in his time in office. Looking forward to Romney’s acceptance speech, Vargas said she hoped he “is so confident in his beliefs that he will make a difference in the next four years and completely undo all the errors of the last four years. We, as Republicans, have a lot of faith in him.” Joe Nevenglosky, 62, of Mountain Top, said he’d like to see Romney win locally with a landslide, “but I don’t think a lot of people in Northeastern Pennsylvania are intelligent enough to understand what he’s going to do. Many people (here) like to stand with their hand out and expect a handout from the politicians instead of going out and getting a job and working for it.” Pat Gudz, 59, of Kingston, said

speaker testified to the help their received from Bain Capital, the private equity firm that he created — and that Democrats argue often took over companies, loaded them down with debt and then walked away with huge fees as bankruptcy approached. There was no shortage of Obama-bashing, though. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, sharing the stage with his wife, Callista, said Obama was a president in the Jimmy Carter mold. Both “took our nation down a path that in four years weakened America’s confidence in itself and our hope for a better future,” he said. Romney’ offered no new information on what has so far been a short-on-details pledge to reduce federal deficits and create 12 million jobs in a country where unemployment stands at 8.3 percent. Romney would have to nearly double the current, anemic pace of job growth to achieve 12 million jobs over four years. That’s conceivable in a healthy economy. Moody’s Analytics, a financial research operation, expects nearly that many jobs to return in four years no matter who oc-

cupies the White House, absent further economic setbacks. Romney’s steps for achieving the employment growth include deficit cuts that he has not spelled out and a march toward energy independence that past presidents have promised but never delivered. He has called for extension of tax cuts due to expire at all income levels at the end of the year, and an additional 20 percent across the board cut in rates. But he has yet to sketch which tax breaks he will eliminate or cut to prevent deficits from rising. Nor has he been forthcoming about where to make the trillions in spending cuts needed to redeem his pledge of major deficit reduction, or about his promise to rein in Medicare or other government benefit programs before they go broke. Running mate Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has called for remaking Medicare into a program in which the government would send seniors checks to be used to purchase health care insurance. Under the current approach, beneficiaries pay premiums to the government, which then pays a part of all of their medical bills, and Democrats say the GOP alternative would expose seniors to ever-rising out-ofpocket costs. Obama’s surrogates missed no opportunity to criticize Romney, the convention proceedings or Ryan’s own acceptance speech. “He lied about Medicare. He lied about the Recovery Act,” Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, emailed Democratic donors in a plea for cash. “He lied about the deficit and debt. He even dishonestly attacked Barack Obama for the closing of a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin — a plant that closed in December 2008 under George W. Bush.”

The author broke agreement on non-disclosure, Pentagon authorities say. By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon’s top lawyer on Thursday informed the former Navy SEAL who wrote a forthcoming book describing details of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden that he violated agreements to not divulge military secrets and that as a result the Pentagon is considering taking legal action against him. The general counsel of the Defense Department, Jeh Johnson, wrote in a letter transmitted to the author that he had signed two nondisclosure agreements with the Navy in 2007 that obliged him to “never divulge” classified information. Johnson said that after reviewing a copy of the book, “No Easy Day,” the Pentagon concluded that the author is in “material

It was unclear Thursday if the Pennsylvania and Michigan cases are related. Ostrowski’s attorneys, Frank Nocito and Phil Gelso, did not return a phone message Thursday. Peter J.

In a press release issued after Ostrowski’s arrest in May, Smith noted the charges resulted from an investigation by FBI agents in

she attended the party “to support the new president, and I’m very optimistic that my fellow Americans are going to (vote) for an American who wants this great country we’re living in to come back to its greatness.” Gudz expected Romney’s speech to be “true and from the heart. Because of his faith, he can’t do anything else but tell the truth.” Not everyone at the party was buying into the conservative

agenda and Romney’s plans. “I’m a token Democrat in the room tonight,” said blogger Ben Hoons, of Plains Township. “I’m expecting to watch Romney add to the pile of lies that have been going on for the last three days,” he said when asked what he expected to hear at the party. “That cutout looks more real than he comes across on TV,” Hoons said of the life-size color cardboard cut-out of Romney set up in the center of the room.

“I do have a triple-A personality,” Namey conceded. “When I had my bypass surgery at Jefferson Hospital, I had 20 doctors say, ‘You need to do something about your temper.’ I’m still working on that.” Namey praised district staff. “The district works not because of the board of education and not because of the superintendent. It succeeds because of the people in this room, and the people who put their heart and soul into doing

Bissonnette referred requests for comment about the letter to his publisher, Penguin Putnam, which was not immediately available. “I write to formally advise you of your material breach and violation of your agreements, and to inform you that the department is considering pursuing against you, and all those acting in concert with you, all remedies legally available to us in light of this situation,” Johnson wrote. The Pentagon has not revealed how it got a copy of the book, which is scheduled to go on public sale next week.

He also promised he’d visit the district from time to time and told the crowd they should feel free to call him if they want advice or need some help. “You have really enriched my life,” Namey said. “And I leave here a better person than when I came.” maintenance must be added to the cost. McLaughlin said city officials believe those costs are more than covered by the $3,600 difference in lease cost versus the savings in mileage reimbursements. “The Ford Focuses should last for quite a while and maintenance on them would be minimal for a number of years,” he said. “Once the leases are paid off, the savings increase even more.”

I enjoyed it, covering the games and going around seeing all the teams. I was still involved in it that way. “Now, it just consumes you. I never thought I’d be back. I gave everything away. Crestwood has my playbook. One of their assistant coaches was on my staff.” About to begin his 43rd year as a head coach and after a Pennsylvania-record 413

victories, Curry probably has that playbook memorized. But he doesn’t want tonight’s game focused on his return, but rather his players. The Dawgs, Curry said, have been working hard the past few months. The players have digested his system extremely quick and attendance at offseason workouts and practices has been outstanding. The mental aspect has been going so well that new starting quarterback C.J. Curry has occasionally corrected his grandfather on the verbiage used to call some plays. See FOOTBALL, Page 5B

NEW YORK — By turns a bit wistful and at his wisecracking best, Andy Roddick let the tennis world in on a little secret he kept for a couple of days: This U.S. Open will be the last tournament of his career. Roddick made the surprising announcement at a hastily arranged news conference Thursday, his 30th birthday, at Flushing Meadows, the site of his biggest triumph — the 2003 championship, the last time an American man won a Grand Slam singles trophy. “I just feel like it’s time,” said Roddick, a former No. 1-ranked player who is seeded 20th. “I don’t know that I’m healthy enough or committed enough to go another year. I’ve always wanted to, in a perfect world, finish at this event. I have a lot of family and friends here. I’ve thought all year that I would know when I got to this tournament. When I was playing my first round, I knew.” He is scheduled to play 19year-old Bernard Tomic of Australia in the second round tonight at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Not when you are 90 years old. “To be out here at 90 playing golf,” Sam Gelso said, “thank God we’re out here playing.” They play about three times a week, Gelso and Lou Mischianti and Howie Rottman and Elmer Clemente – a group of 90-yearold World War II veterans from the Wyoming Valley known around Fox Hill Country Club as the “Super Seniors.” They were out there again Thursday, celebratingMischianti’s90thbirthdaywithanothersunny,laughter-filleddaythatwaspar for their course. “We’ve been friends,” Mischianti said.

“We’re members here. This really keeps us active. And we get some exercise.” Maybethat’stheirsecrettoalongandfulfilling life. Mischiantisaidhe’sbeengolfingforclose to 50 years, and Gelso said he’s been at the game for 52 years and once was an eighthandicap. But none of them really keep score anymore. “I shot a 42 on the front (nine), about a 49 on the back,” Mischianti said. “I shot about 100,” Gelso figured. See COURSE, Page 6B

All the off-the-field issues have been taken care of and the coaching staff and team couldn’t be more ready to play a game. Yes, it’s finally arrived. After nearly two years of planning, and the only “football” being played at Misericordia being soccer the last several years, the Cougars football team will take the field at Gettysburg College for its first football game in school history. “I think they’re anxious to play the game because we haven’t had a chance to hit anybody,” Cougars coach Mark Ross said. “They are very mature and have had a very mature approach at practice all week.” When Saturday arrives, Ross will be making his head coaching debut after spending 19 months on the job and previously being assistant coach at Ithaca. He doesn’t know what kind of emotions to expect in the moments leading up to the game, but knows once the opening whistle sounds all the hoopla will be taking a back seat. “It’s obviously a different setting than I’ve been in before. There’s a lot of excitement here on campus so you won’t be able to dodge it,” Ross said. “That stuff is on the outside, just have to block it out and focus on the See WAIT, Page 6B

Andy Roddick speaks Thursday in New York. He says the U.S. Open will be the last tournament of his career.

Stephon Morris and his teammates hear about it every day. Their own coach won’t let them forget. Graduation, injuries and dismissals have created plenty of question marks for Penn State’s secondary headed into the Saturday’s season opener against Ohio. And new defensive backs coach John Butler hasn’t had to look hard for bulletin board material. “It’s definitely been a motiva-

ting factor,” said Morris, a senior starter at cornerback. “Every day before practice and after practice coach Butler reminds us. … In our meeting room, he gives us a little saying about what the media is saying and what Ohio is saying. Everyone is saying we’re the weak link. “We’re ready to go out there

and show everybody how hard we’ve been working.” The Nittany Lions won’t have much time to get comfortable. Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton is one of the most accomplished passers they will face this season. Tettleton, the son of former major-leaguer Mickey Tettleton, finished with 3,302 yards and 28 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2011. Who exactly will start in the defensive backfield is up in the air. Morris is a lock at one of the

corner spots. Adrian Amos will likely be opposite him, but the sophomore lined up at all four positions so far in preseason camp. That’s in part because safeties Malcolm Willis and Jake Fagnano both dealt with lower-body injuries that caused them to miss time. Both are ready to play, though Stephen Obeng-Agyapong could start in place of Fagnano. “I feel good about the secondary,” O’Brien said. “I think they’ve been very well-coached

by John Butler. “He’s a very detailed coach and done a heck of a job with these guys. We’ve got some younger guys that have come in and really improved, and we think they can help us. “Now I’m looking forward to watching those guys go out and play again against an excellent quarterback in Tyler Tettleton and a corps of receivers and tight ends that are really good football players at Ohio.” See SECONDARY, Page 6B

NFL EXHIBITION ROUNDUP

Edwards impresses in last tuneup game

By PAUL SOKOLOSKI psokoloski@timesleader.com

PHILADELPHIA - After putting his stamp on a solid preseason, Nick Foles appeared to solidify his spot as a backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Trent Edwards wants one, too. Edwards threw for two touchdowns and his pinpoint passing in the first half set up another Thursday as the Eagles closed their perfect preseason with a 28-10 victory over the New York Jets at Lincoln Financial Field. “They say if you don’t make it here, you can make it someplace else,” Edwards said. “I want to be HERE. “This is the team I want to play for.” He showed it, by hitting 22 of his 32 passes for 197 yards and directing two touchdown drives against Jets reserves. “I thought Trent played well,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “He had a lot of drives and a lot of touchdowns there. You’ve got to give him credit for that.” Now the Eagles will have to figure out if that was enough to keep Edwards. With the NFL deadline for teams to trim final rosters to 53 players set for 9 p.m. today, both the Eagles and Jets filled the field with fringe players hoping just to secure a roster spot. Edwards was one of them. Although he’s a former NFL starter with the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, Edwards came into training camp as a longshot to make the Eagles. They seem set with starter Michael Vick and return reliable third-year backup Mike Kafka. And Foles, a third-round draft pick out of Arizona this past April, wrapped up his impressive preseason by connecting on four of six passes for 46 yards while directing Philadelphia’s offense through the first quarter.

ford threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions went on to beat the Buffalo Bills.

Steelers 17, Panthers 16 PITTSBURGH — Charlie Batch completed 11 of 14 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown to bolster his hopes of playing a 15th NFL season and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Carolina Panthers in their preseason finale. Colts 20, Bengals 16 INDIANAPOLIS — Chandler Harnish threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dominique Jones, leading the Colts to a victory over Cincinnati. Packers 24, Chiefs 3 GREEN BAY, Wis. — Backup quarterback Graham Harrell finally came through with the strong preseason performance the Green Bay Packers were looking for, driving the offense for touchdowns on all three of his possessions in a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Jaguars 24, Falcons 14 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kevin Elliott had a 77-yard touchdown reception, likely solidifying his spot on the regular-season roster, and the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Atlanta Falcons in their preseason finale. Titans 10, Saints 6 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The New Orleans Saints took no chances in their final preseason game, resting all starters in a loss to the Tennessee Titans. Bears 28, Browns 20 CLEVELAND — Quarterback Colt McCoy did little to solidify winning Cleveland’s backup job — or impress any other NFL team — and Chicago’s Josh McCown threw two touchdown passes in the first half, leading the Bears to a victory over the Browns in the exhibition finale.

Texans 28, Vikings 24 HOUSTON — Trindon Holliday had his third kick return for a touchdown of the preseason and Justin Forsett rushed for 114 Rams 31, Ravens 17 yards and two more scores in ST. LOUIS — Sam Bradford the Houston Texans’ win over threw three touchdown passes the Minnesota Vikings in the in 11/2 quarters giving the St. preseason finale. Louis Rams a win over the BaltiLions 38, Bills 32 more Ravens to end the preseaDETROIT — Matthew Stafson.

S. Carolina rallies, beats Vandy The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Marcus Lattimore ran for two touchdowns and 110 yards, and Connor Shaw ran for 92 yards while playing the second half with an injured shoulder as No. 9 South Carolina rallied for a 17-13 victory against Vanderbilt to open the season Thursday night. Shaw hurt his right, throwing shoulder late in the first half

and missed the first two series of the third quarter before returning. The junior drove the Gamecocks for the go-ahead touchdown and ran 12 yards to the Vandy 1 before rolling in pain in the end zone. Lattimore scored the goahead TD on a 1-yard run with 11:25 to go. The Commodores turned it over on downs with 1:47 to go.

Britton Ks 10 as O’s top Sox The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Zach Britton struck out a career-high 10 in eight innings, Taylor Teagarden and Adam Jones homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 Thursday for their eighth win in 11 games. Baltimore took three of four from the AL Central-leading White Sox to complete a 5-1 homestand that started with a two-game sweep of Toronto. The victory moved the Orioles (72-58) within three games of the idle AL East-leading New York Yankees, who host Baltimore in a three-game series that begins Friday night. Britton (4-1) gave up one run, seven hits and did not issue a walk. He fanned Dewayne Wise three times and eclipsed his previous single-game career high of seven strikeouts by the fifth inning. Athletics 12, Indians 7

PHILADELPHIA — Phillies star Jimmy Rollins was benched after a pair of baserunning blunders in Philadelphia’s win over the Mets. Rollins was pulled for the start of the seventh inning after a pair of mistakes in the sixth. The former NL MVP failed to run hard on a dropped popup that could have put him on second base. He stole second base, then was caught in a rundown on a grounder and was tagged out. Giants 8, Astros 4

TORONTO — Carlos Villanueva pitched six sharp innings and the Toronto Blue Jays beat slumping Tampa Bay, snapping a five-game losing streak against the Rays. Tampa Bay lost for the fifth time in six games and dropped 11⁄2 games behind Baltimore for the second AL wild-card berth. The Rays have been shut out twice in the past three games, losing 1-0 at Texas on Tuesday night.

WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper hit his third home run in two games, Jason Werth homered for the first time since May, and Edwin Jackson struck out 10 Thursday night as the Washington Nationals padded their NL East lead with an 8-1 win over the punchless St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals opened an 11-game homestand with an overwhelming performance against a wild-card contender that failed to score an earned run for the third straight game. Jackson (8-9) was so dominant that three of his strikeouts required throws to first because the Cardinals were chasing balls in the dirt. The victory moved the Nationals 51⁄2 games ahead of idle Atlanta.

CLEVELAND — Jarrod Parker pitched into the sixth inning and Oakland hit four home runs, leading the Athletics to their sixth straight win, a victory over the free-falling Indians and a sweep of the four-game series. Oakland, which has won eight of nine, maintained its one-game lead over Baltimore for the top spot in the AL wild card race. George Kottaras’ three-run double broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth while Coco Crisp, Cliff Pennington, Josh Reddick and Josh Donaldson homered.

SWB Yanks capture win, division title Times Leader Staff

ALLENTOWN – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees used the long ball and a stellar effort from starting pitcher John Maine, who won his third consecutive start, to earn a 5-0 win over the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs on Thursday night. With the win, the Yankees (8257) clinched the International League North Division title for the fifth time in six seasons under Manager Dave Miley. Kevin Russo set the tone in the bottom of the first inning. Russo tripled off the wall in left-center field off Iron Pigs starter Mario Hollands (0-2). One batter later, Eduardo Nunez hit his second homer of the season – and the first of four on the night for the Yankees – giving SWB a 2-0 lead. Cole Garner slugged the Yankees’ second homer of the night and his sixth of the season leading off the bottom of the third. Garner’s deep solo blast gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead. The Yankees went back-toback leading off the sixth inning, with solo home runs from Ronnier Mustelier and Austin Romine. Mustelier’s 10th of the season was a shot to the lawn section in deep left-center field. Romine followed up the leadoff homer with his third of the season, a low liner over the wall in the left field corner. The back-to-back homers in Thursday were the second pair the Yankees hit on the season.S teve Pearce and Jack Cust did so back on May 29 against Toledo. Maine held the Iron Pigs at bay all night, allowing just three hits over seven innings. Andres Blanco’s double to right-center in the third inning was the only Lehigh Valley hit that got out of the infield. Cory Wade came on for the Yankees in the eighth inning and retired all three batters he faced before turning the ball over to Ryota Igarashi, who pitched a 12-3 top of the ninth inning and struck out Jason Pridie to end the game. The Yankees begin the final four-game series of the season on Saturday night at McCoy Stadium against the Pawtucket Red Sox. Righty Ramon Ortiz (12-6, 3.44 ERA) will get the start in the opening game of the series for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, while Pawtucket sends out southpaw Chris Hernandez (1-3, 3.44).

Berwick at Crestwood 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Berwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George Curry (413-90-5, 43rd year); Crestwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greg Myers (41-44, 7th year) Last Meeting: Crestwood 19-6 in 2011 All-Time Series: Berwick leads 6-1 Quick Fact: Comets won for first time against Berwick, 19-6, last season Scouting Berwick: Curry is back, but a lot of the offense is gone. Departed QB Jared Pierce and RB Jeremy Freeman combined to score 31 of 40 regular-season TDs in 2011. But there is also a concern on defense where the Dawgs gave up too many points last season. Scouting Crestwood: Buy a program. Four-year starting QB Nick Aigeldinger is one of several key contributors to graduate. WR Kota Kishel is back after a strong season, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about it at the skill positions. What To Expect: Berwick is probably a little ahead of Crestwood right now based on the returning players. That should be evident now, but perhaps not later in the season. -- John Erzar

Central Mountain at Williamsport 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Central Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vinnie Kishbaugh (2-8, 2nd

year); Williamsportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kevin Choate (0-0, 1st year) Last Meeting: Williamsport 23-13 in 2011 All-Time Series: Williamsport leads 6-4 Quick Fact: Williamsport has scored 100 points in winning the last three meetings. Scouting Central Mountain: Kishbaugh, a Berwick grad, had a rough time in his first season. The offense should be better with the return of RB/QB Von Walker, who had nearly 1,200 yards on the ground last year. Scouting Williamsport: The Millionairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gameplan is simple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; run the ball. And why not with two-time 1,000-yard rusher Devin Miller back and Caleb Belle pitching in as well. What To Expect: A game a lot like last year. Both teams are a little more seasoned, but Williamsportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run game could be the difference. -- John Erzar

Pittston Area at Abington Heights 1 p.m. Saturday

Abingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Repshis (62-20, 8th year) Last Meeting: Abington 21-8 in 2008 All-Time Series: Tied 3-3 Quick Fact: Pittston Area won the last regular-season meeting 14-6 in 1970. Scouting Pittston Area: Like Abington, the Patriots were 3-7 last season. But it was a good 3-7 in that the Patriots looked good in nearly every game. They need to find a quarterback, but the other positions are covered by veterans for the most part. Scouting Abington: Look at the Abington coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record. The Comets arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used to losing, but had an unexpected 3-7 record in 2011. However, they played well late despite going 1-3 down the stretch. Two losses were by a combined 13 points to postseason qualifiers. What To Expect: If the game was Friday at Pittston Area, then the Patriots might be slight favorites. But Abingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stadium â&#x20AC;&#x201C; aka The Pit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a difficult place to play on Saturday afternoons. And a difficult place to win for opponents. -- John Erzar

Old Forge at Lake-Lehman 7 p.m. today

Meyers at Holy Cross 1 p.m. Saturday

Lehmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jerry Gilsky (12-9, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Old Forge 21-7 in 2011 All-Time Series: Old Forge leads 2-0 Quick Fact: Both Old Forge victories have come in the past two years. Scouting Old Forge: The defending LFC Division 3 and District 2 Class A champions should be up to their old tricks once again. It will be a typical Blue Devil team that will use seasoned big guys to control the line of scrimmage. Scouting Lehman: Dustin Jones and Brady Butler could be the biggest running back tandem in the area. Expect the Black Knights to use them extensively early on until the new starters get into the mix. The defense allowed a season-high 346 rushing yards to Old Forge last season. What To Expect: Neither team has a guy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least it looks that way now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can string a lot of moves together. So it will come down to the big guys up front to determine the winner. -- John Erzar

Wyoming Valley West at Dallas 1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Valley Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Keating (22-11, 4th year); Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bob Zaruta (0-0, 1st year)

Last Meeting: Dallas 28-27 in 2011 All-Time Series: Valley West leads 12-9 Quick Fact: Valley West has lost its last three games played on grass fields on Saturday afternoons.

Scouting Valley West: Life begins without Eugene Lewis,

who electrified crowds for four years. Yet, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count out the Spartans. They might not be as explosive (who would be without Eugene) but still are solid contenders for a District 2/4-11 Class 4A playoff berth. Scouting Dallas: Life begins without coach Ted Jackson, who had 26 winning seasons in 27 years at Dallas. Yet, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count out the Mountaineers. They have the best throw-catch combo in the WVC with Ryan Zapoticky and Jason Simonovich. And the line is extremely talented as well. What To Expect: A close game seems quiet possible. A key factor could be a Valley West assistant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ted Jackson Jr. He knows the Dallas kids as well as anyone and that could be the tipping factor. Then again, the Spartans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always play well on Saturday afternoons. -- John Erzar

The Coaches: Pittston Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Barrett (3-7, 2nd year);

The Coaches: Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Corry Hanson (3-7, 2nd year); Holy Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jeff Stevens (4-6, 2nd year) Last Meeting: Holy Cross 37-14 in 2011 All-Time Series: Meyers leads 3-1 Quick Fact: Meyers has averaged 27 points vs. the Crusaders. Scouting Meyers: Meyers pushed itself to contender status with the addition of WVC rushing leader Parrish Bennett, a Hanover Area transfer. He canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t but help an offense that struggled to score against better opponents. The defense should be better as well. Scouting Holy Cross: The Crusaders pounded the ball at Meyers last year while their defense held the Mohawks to 101 total yards. But with heavy losses to graduation, the Crusaders will have a hard time doing both again. What To Expect: It should be close for a quarter, maybe a half, but Meyers will eventually overwhelm the 22-man Holy Cross squad. -- John Erzar

FOOTBALL Continued from Page 1B

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about family, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the football team,â&#x20AC;? Curry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only guy who has to work. We all have to work. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the game, you guys play the game. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m there, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll accomplish a lot.â&#x20AC;? Curry likes what he has seen thus far in two scrimmages. C.J. has developed nicely and will have a couple veteran receivers in seniors Will Masteller, Zach Ladonis, Jake Pecorelli and Jeff Stuber. Senior tight end Brandon Dalberto provides a big target. Berwick, though, suffered a setback on the offensive line. Senior Gavin Harter will be sidelined for a few weeks due to an injury. Curry was counting on Harterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veteran presence to be a stabilizing force on the young offensive line.

Hazleton Area at Scranton 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Hazleton Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Drumheller (4-6, 2nd year); Scrantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Marichak (21-21, 5th year) Last Meeting: Hazleton Area 44-28 in 2001 All-Time Series: Hazleton Area leads 2-0 Quick Fact: The teams have only met in NEPFC play, the two-year merger of the WVC and Lackawanna Conference in 2000 and 2001. Scouting Hazleton Area: The Cougars played well in their final three games, falling just short of a .500 season. Unfortunately, many of the players responsible for the success are gone. There is some talent to work with, so the Cougars could improve on last season. Scouting Scranton: The Knights appear the favorite to win the District 2 Class 4A title for a second straight year. Karlon Quiller is a big-time playmaker at receiver and QB Marlinn Waiters can beat opponents with his arm or legs. What To Expect: A victory here would make people take notice of Hazleton Area as a factor in the D2-4A title hunt. The Cougars, though, will likely be undone by their inexperience, especially in the backfield. -- John Erzar Mid Valley at Hanover Area 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Lakelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff Wasilchak (31-14, 5th season); GARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paul Wiedlich Jr. (22-4, 3rd year) Last Meeting: GAR 41-21 in 2011 All-Time Series: Tied 5-5 Quick Fact: The teams have met in the playoffs in four of the past five seasons, with GAR winning the last two. Scouting Lakeland: The Chiefs will be strong up front led by Cody DelFino, who returns on the defensive line. They also have a very good QB in Kyle Kiehart and a solid runner in Tyler Brady. They also have the desire to avenge the loss to GAR in the District 2 Class 2A playoffs. Scouting GAR: GAR has three excellent linemen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zac Faust, Shakir Soto and Christian Skrepenak â&#x20AC;&#x201C; back. Multi-purpose threat Lucas Benton returns. Then it gets a little dicey, although new QB Corey Moore threw for 308 yards in a relief role last year vs. Lakeland in a 34-31 loss during the 2011 regular season. What To Expect: This is a difficult game to figure out. It really looks like a toss-up, but home-field advantage should give GAR the edge. Both teams will get better as the season wears on. -- John Erzar

The Coaches: Old Forgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Schuback (78-39, 11th year);

Holy Redeemer at Northwest 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Redeemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Reece (0-0, 1st year); Northwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carl Majer (28-17, 5th year)

Last Meeting: Northwest 38-24 in 2011 All-Time Series: Northwest leads 4-0 Quick Fact: Northwest has scored at least 33 points in all four meetings.

Scouting Redeemer: Reece takes over and has some passing

weapons at his disposal with QB Jimmy Strickland and pass catchers Thomas Cosgrove and Eric Kerr. The Royals, though, really need to run the ball with consistency. And block much, much better. Scouting Northwest: Northwest running back Tony Politz had a career-high 244 yards in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory over Redeemer. The Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 352 yards on the ground were also a season high. The passing offense will be a work in progress. The parts are there, but some assembly is required. What To Expect: Running Politz last season worked, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect Northwest to deviate too much from that philosophy. It should be good enough for a victory. -- John Erzar

Nanticoke at Lackawanna Trail 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Frank Pazzaglia (340-137-8, 44th year); Hanover Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Hummer (34-23, 7th year) Last Meeting: Mid Valley 34-27 in 2011 All-Time Series: Hanover Area leads 4-1 Quick Fact: Hanover Area has scored at least 25 points in the previous four meetings. Scouting Mid Valley: The Spartans fell just short of making a District 2 title game for the first time since 2005, falling 35-28 to Wyoming Area in the D2-2A semifinals. Plenty of talent is back, so this could be the year. Scouting Hanover Area: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a rebuilding year for the Hawkeyes. There is little firepower left on offense, especially with RB Parrish Bennett departing for Meyers, and the defense must improve on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. What To Expect: Hanover Area has the home-field advantage, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the only edge in this matchup. Mid Valley is too experienced to let a victory slip away. -- John Erzar

The Coaches: Prepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Donato (137-84-2, 21st year); Wyoming Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy Spencer (21-22, 5th year) Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 55-28 in 1998 All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 2-1 Quick Fact: The Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; other victory over Prep was 31-6 in 1971. Scouting Prep: Prepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 season ended on a sour note with a 39-6 loss to Dallas in the District 2 Class 3A semifinals. The Cavs, though, returning plenty of experience starting with RB Marshall Kupinski and QB Griffin DiBileo. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certainly a playoff contender. Scouting Wyoming Area: Standout QB/RB Nick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien returns for his final season, but he is only part of a talented skill position group. The Warriors are also itching for the postseason after losing in the D2-2A title contest. The defense needs to play better than last year. What To Expect: Two teams that scrimmaged on a regular basis now get to play for real. Could be the best game of the night with the loser looking back to this contest as the one that got away. -- John Erzar

Jervis (36-57, 10 year)

Last Meeting: never played All-Time Series: never played Quick Fact: Trail won three of its last four in 2011, allowing just 23 points in those games.

Scouting Nanticoke: This will be a key season for Nanticoke

as it will be the first time under Bruza that the Trojans have plenty of new faces in the lineup. One holdover is running back Pat Hempel, who was second on the team in rushing in 2011 and had a pair of 100-yard games. Scouting Trail: The Lions came within a whisker of upsetting Old Forge in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s District 2 Class A playoffs. But a lot of those guys have departed, leaving Jervis with some holes to fill. One wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a line spot where Justin Barber will be the best interior guy on the field. What To Expect: Despite the graduation losses for both teams, Trail seems to have more guys ready to step up than the Trojans. So expect a Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; victory. -- John Erzar

The Coaches: Tunkhannockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rod Azar (1-9, 2nd year); Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ciro Cinti (34-32, 7th year)

Last Meeting: Coughlin 48-11 in 2011 All-Time Series: Coughlin leads 19-11-1 Quick Fact: Coughlin won the first meeting 6-0 in 1898. Tunk-

hannock did not score until the seventh meeting, a 55-22 Crusaders win in 1984 Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers were able to pick up their only win of 2011 in their season finale. Some skill guys who showed promise return, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible for a few more wins this season. The line, though, is young and depth isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too deep. Scouting Coughlin: Zac Evans takes over at the backfield workhorse. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have two of the best blocking for him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; linemen Brad Emerick and Aaron Tohme. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the Crusadersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recipe for success throughout Cintiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reign. What To Expect: Coughlin rushed for a season-high 387 yards in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matchup. The Crusaders will use the same formula and the number of passes by their offense should be able to be counted on one hand. -- John Erzar

Former assistant faces his mentor

By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

Faces will look very familiar on opposite sidelines this afternoon when Wyoming Area hosts Hanover Area in the boys soccer season opener for both teams at the field at Tenth Street Elementary School. The Warriors hired a new coach in the offseason in Nick Hufford, who happens to be a former assistant and junior high mentor with the Hawkeyes program. Hufford spent three years under Hanover Area head coach John Nealon, with his last season being in 2008. So the current seniors were Hufford’s last group as junior high coach. The familiarity doesn’t stop there, though. Hufford’s assistant coach is Pat Cook, who just graduated from Hanover Area this past spring and helped the Hawkeyes to back-toback Wyoming Valley Conference Division III championships in 2010 and 2011 as starting sweeper. “I learned a lot from John Nealon so I have a ton of respect for him,” Hufford said. “It doesn’t get any better than that. It’s going to be a lot of fun. When the schedule came out and we saw Hanover as the first game, Pat and I just said ‘Why not.’ It kind of set the bar there and this is one that counts.” While the Hawkeyes have been the team to beat in the division the last two years, the Warriors have been near the bottom. But with a large number of players returning, they’re looking to make some noise this afternoon. STARTING AT THE END The season gets underway with six games this afternoon and a pair Saturday morning. The Hanover Area-Wyoming Area matchup isn’t the only one that will be familiar. Crestwood hosts Dallas on Saturday morning in a rematch of the District 2

task at hand.” The job the Cougars have will be dealing with the Bullets, who are coming off a 6-4 season and averaged 34.4 points per game playing in the Centennial Conference. They possess a high-powered offense, which tallied 460.9 yards per game – good for 11th in all of Division III – and scored at least 40 points on five occasions last year. Six starters are back from its spread wing offense. Even though the Bullets return a 1,000-yard receiver from a year ago, their strength is running the football. They averaged 225.4 yards per game, which outrushed the second-best team in the Centennial by 45 yards per game. Their top offensive player is senior tailback and punt returner Ted Delia, who ran for 1,071 yards and is a D3 Senior Classic Preseason All-American honorable mention as a punt returner. As a return man, he averaged 25.9 yards per punt return and had three touchdowns in 2011. The Cougars will look to slow down the potent offense with their multiple 3-4 defensive scheme. “They like to go very fast so that’s going to be a challenge for our kids to adapt to the speed that they play. If you don’t do that it’s hard to mimic,” Ross noted. “They have high expectations and based on the im-

Class 2A semifinals from last year won by the Mountaineers. Lake-Lehman, which has bumped up from Division II to Division I this season after winning consecutive division championships, travels to Pittston Area in a battle of the top two teams from D-II in 2011. The Black Knights won the only match between the two last year and this afternoon’s contest will be the only time they square off in 2012. CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE Whenever a new season starts, there are always going to be some changes on and off the field. The most notable changes locally occurred off the field. Coughlin and Tunkhannock drop back down to Class 2A after spending the last two in 3A and LakeLehman will now play in WVC Division I after two straight Division II titles. There are also two coaching changes. In addition to Hufford replacing Sam Fuller at Wyoming Area, Rob Schoener takes over for Dan Cunningham at Hazleton Area. Schoener was an assistant with the girls program at Hazleton Area previously. The Cougars are also playing at a new home this season. All but one of their home matches will be at Maple Manor Field, the former home to the Bishop Hafey football team. The only home match not played there will be hosted at Harman-Geist Memorial Field for the team’s senior night on Oct. 10. COMING UP The full Times Leader boys soccer preview will be published on Sunday. That’s also the day the team-byteam preview for all 17 programs in the Wyoming Valley Conference will be available. provements they made; it will be a challenge.” At midweek, Ross was still evaluating his players and was unsettled on his starters in the backfield. Regardless of who gets the starting nod, the coach expects all the players on his 79-man roster to contribute not only this week but every week in some way, which should benefit the team a number of ways on a weekly basis. “I’ve always believed that your strength is in numbers; nobody on the team has not given it their best,” Ross added. “Certainly some guys’ performance level dictates a little more time on the field than others, but it’s going to be a hot day and with all the adrenaline and excitement of the first game we’re going to need to use bodies so that we can stay in it for 60 minutes and not be out of gas come halftime.” Another aspect Misericordia may have in its favor is that for the first few games opponents won’t know what to expect from the first-year team because of film and scouting unavailable. “I don’t know how much of an advantage it is just because we don’t have the experience they have,” the coach said. “Not just playing the game but what to expect, but hopefully that will tilt it back a little bit to our way.” No matter what the outcome, the Cougars players will make memories for themselves by making history and being part of a unique experience.

Does it really matter? No, not to this fearsome foursome. They’re more interested in the game of golf for a good time, some socialization and a chance to relive some past sports glory. “We can’t play football,” Mischianti said. “Can’t play baseball,” Gelso said. None of them figured they’d be playing anything this long. Gelso talks about his long list of ailments, starting with past heart operations. “I’m bionic, really,” Gelso said. But he’s got enough mettle to keep making it onto the golf course, even awayfromhisJenkinsTownshiphome. It turns out Gelso and Mischianti are neighbors at their winter homes in Naples, Fla., and both golf together in that state as well. “We continue playing golf when we get down there,” Gelso said. “I said if I reach 70 I’d thank God. Then I said I’d like to reach 80. Then I said I’d like to see the turn of the century.” With 10 more years, they’ll hit their

own century mark. “I went to Florida and said I’ll be happy if I could have 10 years,” Mischianti said. “I’ve been there 25.” They’ve all been long retired. Mischianti, who was raised in Old Forge and lives in Plains, gave up his pants factory a quarter century ago. Gelso, who grew up in Pittston and resides in Jenkins Township, made his living in the coal business and ran Brocca Garages until just12 years ago. “I got up one day and didn’t feel like going to work,” Gelso said. “I went to the office and gave the business to my kid brother and my secretary.” But in what they call their bonus years, all four of the 90s crew retains a zest for life. “We’re not couch potatoes,” Mischianti said. “We’re in pretty good shape.” Sometimes it takes a little extra effort to get out of the golf cart. “I felt my age a few times up here,” Mischianti said. And sometimes their shots veer off course. Butaslongasthey’reoutthere,every swing feels great. “Whenwedomissashot,”Mischianti said, “we always think of the guys who would love to be here and miss shots.”

Paternos in attendance A family spokesman told The Associated Press that members of the Paterno family intend to attend Saturday’s opener. The late coach’s severance included use of a suite at Beaver Stadium for 25 years. Though the Paternos have expressed their displeasure toward recent events – namely Joe Paterno’s statue coming down and his reputation being tarnished by the university-commissioned Freeh report – the spokesman said Saturday would only be about showing support for Bill O’Brien and the football team. “The family doesn’t want to do anything to distract from the game this weekend,” Dan McGinn said.

ons earned from winning bowl games since 1998. The NCAA stripped Penn State of all of its wins – including in bowl games – from 19982011 as part of the heavy sanctions imposed in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Earlier this week an NCAA spokesman told WHP-TV in Harrisburg that the governing body would request that Penn State return the trophies from the Orange Bowl (2005 season), Capital One Bowl (2009) and two apiece from the Outback Bowl (1998, 2006) and Alamo Bowl (1999, 2007). But bowl games and the BCS are independent entities, meaning the NCAA would not have the authority to also take back the trophies. “As a correction to our statement last week, the NCAA did not specifically direct Penn State to return its trophies from vacated bowl wins as a part of its sanctions,” spokesman Chris Radford wrote in a statement to multiple outlets. “As such, Penn State and each bowl operator must decide what is appropriate.”

TWA attendants recalled

More than 200 Trans World Airlines flight attendants are about to go back to work, nearly 11 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that caused an airline industry slowdown and cost tens of thousands of jobs. The recall of 211 workers announced Thursday means that for the first time since 9/11, there won’t be a single former TWA attendant on furlough. The recall is effective Nov. 17. American Airlines bought St. Louisbased TWA just months before the hijackings. In the subsequent downturn, American slashed 2,500 jobs.

WASHINGTON — Americans spent at the fastest pace in five months in July after earning a little more. The increase in income and consumer spending could help boost an economy mired in subpar growth. Consumer spending rose 0.4 percent in July from June, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That followed no change in June and a slight decline in May. Income grew 0.3 percent, matching the gains from May and June. Americans also earned 0.3 percent more after paying taxes. The savings rate after taxes dipped to 4.2 percent in July. That’s down slightly from 4.3 percent in June, the highest in a year. Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said that the rise in spending showed “there is still life in American consumers.” But he cautioned that higher gasoline prices and a decline in consumer confidence in August could dampen spending in coming months. So far that hasn’t happened. In a separate report, a group of 18 retailers ranging from discounter Target to department-store chain Macy’s reported August sales on Thursday that rose 6 percent — the industry’s best performance since March — according to trade group International Council of Shopping Centers. The strong sales reports come two days after a private research firm said consumer confidence in August fell to its lowest level since November 2011. Hiring picked up in July and could see further modest gains in August. The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits was unchanged last week at a seasonally adjusted 374,000, the Labor Department said in a separate report Thursday. The economy grew at a tepid annual rate of 1.7 percent in the April-June quarter, the government said Wednesday. Many economists expect growth will hover around 2 percent in the second half of the year. Growth at that level is far below what is needed to rapidly lower the unemployment rate. Consumers paid no more for their purchases in July than June, the report showed. Excluding food and energy, prices over the past year are up just 1.6 percent, well below the Federal Reserve’s 2 percent target for inflation. In its latest survey of business conditions around the country, the Federal Reserve reported Wednesday that the U.S. economy grew moderately in July and early August with stronger retail sales helping to offset weakness in manufacturing.

Carlyle buys DuPont unit

The DuPont Co. is selling its performance coatings business for $4.9 billion in cash to The Carlyle Group, giving the private equity firm another investment in the automotive and industrial segments. DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman said the sale of the performance coatings unit will allow the Wilmington, Del.-based company to focus on higher-growth, higher-margin businesses. Those include agriculture and nutrition, biobased industrials, and advanced materials, which Kullman said are the foundation of DuPont’s long-term growth targets.

More private work in Cuba

Twenty-two percent of Cuban workers were employed in non-governmental jobs last year, up from 16 percent in 2010, according to statistics released Thursday. The increase in non-state jobs was most noticeable in agricultural cooperatives and in self-employment, both areas that are growing because of economic reforms that aim to slash state payrolls by as much as 1 million. In 2010, President Raul Castro announced his intention to slim down government and expand private economic activity to absorb layoffs.

They open for business Tuesday in Suite 227. It’s a place Zielinski knew well since he worked at one of the incubator’s biggest success stories, Pepperjam. The Innovation Center has been the home for several local startups, some of whom have gone on to larger facilities and some that have been purchased by larger companies, such as Pepperjam, which is now owned by eBay. Pepperjam started out with two desks in the center’s second-floor office space, the same floor The Creative Agency will be located on in a

Explaining what the new company is and does takes some time. Its goal is to make businesses stand out from competitors and to create multi-layered plans to do just that. Brodt is quick to note what the company isn’t. “We are not an advertising agency,” he said. “We build relationships with our clients and creatively position their company to the customer. We are artists that are skilled in communication.” Brodt and Zielinski met while the two were graphic design program students at Allied Medical and Technical Institute in Scranton. Eventually the two worked together at a local company they declined to identify. Franks, who has a background in banking and radio sales and marketing, did some freelance projects with Zielinski and when the idea of a new company was brought up, she knew

430-square-foot space. Franks said the location, along South Main Street just off Public Square, is ideal, the rent reasonable and the assistance and support the center provides was icing on the cake. Chamber President Bill Moore said companies like The Creative Agency are perfect for the incubator. “The Innovation Center was put together exactly for this sort of company, small startup firms wanting to locate in downtown Wilkes-Barre,” he said. He said once the firm moves in next week the center will be at 98 percent capacity. He noted that while there is a plan for a second Innovation Center nearby on the former Blum Brothers clothing store lot on South Main, the chamber is still into all options to make sure it has the best location. A decision will be made in the next six to eight weeks, he added. 10-YR T-NOTE 1.63%

Today will convince you that summer is still alive and well. Under sunny skies and a breeze out of the west, temperatures this afternoon will make a run at 90. The record of 95 set back in 1953 is not in jeopardy, but be sure that with low humidity, it'll feel just great. A weak and shallow cold front will pass through later tonight with some cloudiness into early tomorrow morning. Sunshine will follow for most of Saturday along with warm afternoon temperatures. Sunday looks to be a little cooler with some sunshine then mostly cloudy on Labor day. I expect showers by Tuesday...from Isaac. -Tom Clark
