LYMOUTH – State police Sunday said one man was killed and two others critically injured in gunfire at Bonnie’s Bar on East Main Street. One of the injured men, William Allabaugh, 24, of Plymouth, was charged with homicide and attempted homicide and will be arraigned at a later date, state police said.

Scott Luzetsky, 39, of Roosevelt Street, Edwardsville, was pronounced dead at the scene by acting Luzerne County Coroner William Lisman. An autopsy is scheduled for 9 a.m. today at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. Stephen Hollman, 29, of Plymouth, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was listed in critical condition at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township. Allabaugh also was listed in critical condition at the hospital after being shot multiple times.

Hollman and Allabaugh live across the street from one another a few blocks from the bar. State police did not disclose how Allabaugh was shot, but said the weapons involved in the gunfire around 1:50 a.m. Sunday were recovered. Hollman’s older brother, Stephone, 30, said he heard from a woman who was in the bar and several other people that Allabaugh was thrown out of Bonnie’s for making racial slurs. “The bartender kicked him out,” said Stephone Hollman.

Duryea resident Lorraine Henrich says the region needs a long-term fix to Susquehanna River flooding that will help communities not protected by levees. She points to the nearby Francis E. Walter Dam on the Lehigh River as a model of success controlling water flow and said a similar project north of Tunkhannock could erase the need for levees and buyouts in the Wyoming Valley. “Haven’t we had enough? Maybe it’s time for them to start looking at other solutions,” said Henrich, a chemist who returned to the area four years ago from Philadelphia. “Think of the millions and millions of dollars in property damage every time it floods.” Henrich will soon meet with elected officials in all flood-prone communities along the Susquehanna to present her idea and urge them to sign a letter seeking federal action. She also will ask the officials to provide the letter to citizens for their signatures. She believes a utility company would be interested in bearing some or all construction costs if the government would allow a hydroelectric dam. Henrich, 67, is prepared for a backlash of skepticism because the national trend has been toward dam removal. A dam would require a massiveparceloflandalongtherivertoholdwater, and government regulations have tightened since the Francis E. Walter Dam was built in the 1960s. U.S. Army Corps response Chris Augsburger, public affairs chief at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineering in Baltimore, said the agency can’t weigh the pros and cons of Henrich’s idea without analyzing the specifics. “For us as a federal agency to consider floodrisk management solutions, we must first have congressional authorization and appropriations to conduct a thorough and comprehensive study on what best addresses flooding in the area,” Augsburger said.

WILKES-BARRE -- It was an exciting occasion, not only for the 450 Wilkes University students who received graduate and undergraduates degrees Sunday, but also for new university President Patrick Leahy as well. “I’ve been to seven graduation ceremonies in the last year, but this is the first time as president I will be conferring degrees,” he said. Leahy joined Wilkes as the sixth president in July. “This ceremony will always be special to me.” Leahy commended the graduates for their hard work and wished them well. “Today, you take your place among tens of thousands of Wilkes alumni who are making a difference in the world. I know you are ready to take on the challenges in life,” he said. “Know we are proud to call you our own.” In her address to her fellow graduates, Susan Allen said she appreciated the flexible class schedules that enable students to work around jobs and family life. She also recognized the personal sacrifices that are made while earning a degree. “A child doesn’t understand why mommy and daddy have school when they’re off for the summer, or when a spouse has to attend functions without you because you have a paper to finish,” she said.

LOS ANGELES — “The Possession” occupied the top spot at a nearly comatose box office. The fright flick with Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing the parents of a girl possessed by a demon

earned $9.5 million in its second outing, the lowest grossing weekend for the box office this year and one of the worst weekends at the box office in a decade. It marked the first time since 2008 that no film managed to crack the $10 million mark.

‘Don’t stay quiet,’ anti-bullying activist says

Jordan Tarter, 14, to sing at Anti-Bullying Concert on Wednesday at Osterhout. By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- Sometimes a problem comes with a complicated solution. In this case, the solution is straightforward, at least for Jordan Tarter.

“Justsaysomething,tellsomeone,” the 14-year-old Pittston Area freshman said of how people can help lessen the rising instances of bullying. “You can do something about it yourself, of course, but you really just need to tell somebody. Don’t stay quiet.” Tarter has taken a stance against bullying, starting her public campaign in April with an Anti-Bullying Concert at KISS

Theater in Wilkes-Barre. The second concert of its kind will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on the Osterhout Free Library lawn. There will be door prizes, food and drink, and several local performers. Caroline Thomas, Andrew Blank, Larry George, Phil Jevin and Chris Cashmere will playattheevent,amongpossible other musicians. Tarter herself will play a tune or two, specifical-

ly her self-written song “Recognize,” which focuses on bullying. “Bullying is everywhere, everywhere you go you see it,” she said. Tarter said she was a victim of bullying herself when she was younger and a bit heavier. “I see heavier girls now and I just know the insecurity that can come along with it, and what other people can say. I wanted to organize something like this to just raise awareness.”

A solemn send-off

About 200 109th soldiers are deployed to Kuwait By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE -- A group of family and friends gathered at the 109th Field Artillery Armory on Sunday to say goodbye at a “send-off” observance for a group of about 200 Pennsylvania Army National Guardsmen who are leaving for a one-year deployment to Kuwait. The deployment service was held in conjunction with the unit’s 62nd Annual Memorial Service to commemorate the 109th troops who have fallen in action during the outfit’s 236year history. “One of the Army’s core values is selfless service,” said Capt. Cliff Morales. “A year deployment is the embodiment of that value and touches every soldier and their family in many different ways.” Morales said “family readiness groups” composed of previously deployed soldiers and

Col. Scott Mathna addressed the gathering assembled in front of the armory, noting the many servicemen who died in all of our country’s conflicts dating back to the Revolutionary War. “During World War II, the Wyoming Valley’s own regiment earned five more Battle Streamers,” Mathna said. “The actions of the 109th in The Battle of the Bulge were particularly heroic, as the field artillery, in See SOLDIERS, Page 8A

WILKES-BARRE – A Dallas man charged in a March 2011 towing incident that killed 55year-old Denise Polinchak is scheduled to stand trial this morning. Robert Wickham, 56, will face a jury on charges of homicide by motor vehicle while Wickham driving under the influence, two counts of DUI and one count each of reckless driving and careless driving. County Judge Joseph Sklarosky is presiding over the trial, which is expected to last four days. Polinchak, of Wilkes-Barre, was having her vehicle towed by Wickham because of brake problems outside the Social Security Administration building on East Mountain Road on March 7. Wickham was in the driver’s seat of Polinchak’s car with the door open when the vehicle accelerated. The open door struck Polinchak, according to prosecutors, knocking her to the pavement. Polinchak died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center later that day. Her death was ruled a homicide. Prosecutors allege Wickham drank three 24-ounce cans of beer before being dispatched by his employer, Herbert’s Towing, through AAA Mid-Atlantic, to Polinchak’s vehicle. Wickham’s attorney, Tom Marsilio, has previously acknowledged Wickham had a blood-alcohol level of .114 percent, but blamed a defective vehicle for Polinchak’s fatal injuries. An adult driver in Pennsylvania is considered intoxicated with a BAC of .08 percent. Marsilio represents Wickham along with attorney Larry Kansky. Assistant District Attorneys Rebecca Reimiller and Shannon Crake, who are prosecuting, said at the time of Wickham’s preliminary hearing in January that Wickham’s drinking and driving led to Polinchak’s death. Plains Township police testified at the preliminary hearing that Wickham claimed he told Polinchak to stand away from the vehicle that suddenly accelerated, striking her with an open door. Police said an inspection of the vehicle found a damaged brake line and no problems with the accelerator. Polinchak’s husband, Michael, filed a lawsuit in May 2011 against Wickham, AAA Mid-Atlantic and John Herbert and his towing company, requesting more than $50,000 in damages as a result of his wife’s death. That lawsuit is still pending in Luzerne County Court.

At one point during Simon’s four-minute “Fanfare and Fantasy on Wilkes,” alum Earl Orcutt, who has played with the band for 40 years, will have a French horn solo, then be joined by his wife, Nancy, on bass clarinet. After the Orcutts’ brief duet, other alumni will play for the “tradition” section. “Every word is sincere,” said Anthony, who described herself as more of an editor for “Noble Truths,” while Kuhar was the main writer. So, did the English profs feel

like medieval troubadours as they worked on their lyrics? “I didn’t write it for Pat Leahy,” Kuhar explained. “It’s more of a recognition of a cultural restart and a celebration of all that we can be.” In his piece for the band, Simon does include a tribute to Leahy – but perhaps only the music majors would recognize it. “At the beginning of the last section of the piece,” he said, “Dr. Leahy’s initials appear as musical notes played three separate times. Oddly enough, it works out.”

the punishment process could conflict with collective bargaining agreements. • Six people have applied for the election bureau director position vacated by Leonard Piazza’s termination. Lawton said the human resources department is determining which applicants met minimum qualifications and completing other requirements of the personnel code hiring process. Lawton said he wants to hire a new election director by Octo-

ber. • Council’s strategic initiatives committee discussed the proposed new county mission statement during a meeting last week. County Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck said the best example she found was in Bexar County, Texas: “Build a better community through quality services.” Some counties spend lots of money and time drafting a strategic plan with a consultant,

but committee members agreed the county can’t afford that option though it may be considered down the road. Councilman Edward Brominski agreed to find ways to seek input on the county mission from outside community and business leaders. • The Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority meeting originally scheduled for Sept. 18 will be held this Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the council meeting room at the courthouse.

BOSTON — Mitt Romney said he would retain some popular parts of the new health care law he has pledged to repeal, while President Barack Obama focused attention in all-important Florida on the Republican ticket’s stand on

along with the White House on a budget deal that has set up big automatic spending cuts in defense and elsewhere in the new year. His running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, helped steer that agreement through Congress. Romney, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said he would replace Obama’s health overhaul with a plan entirely his own, yet would keep some popular provisions. “I’m not getting rid of all of health

care reform. Of course, there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” Romney said. He cited coverage for people with medical conditions and new insurance marketplaces. Meanwhile, Obama promoted a study showing that future retirees under Romney’s Medicare plan would pay tens of thousands more for health care over their retirement period. The report was rejected quickly by Romney’s camAP PHOTO paign, which faulted Obama for relying President Obama is lifted by Scott on “discredited attacks” and noted the study was conducted by Obama’s for- Van Duzer, owner of Big Apple Pizza and Pasta in Ft.

Daughter of couple returns

he younger daughter of a BritishIraqi couple slain while vacationing T in the French Alps has returned to

Britain, while her badly wounded older sister has come out of an artificial coma, authorities said Sunday. Four-year-old Zeena and 7-year-old Zaina survived a vicious shooting that killed their parents, Saad and Iqbal al-Hilli, as well as a still-unidentified older woman and a French man who apparently happened to be passing by on his bicycle. French police have been scrambling to hunt down leads since Wednesday’s rampage, while relatives of the couple arrived in France to take care of the girls. Authorities say they are probing whether an alleged financial dispute between Saad al-Hilli and his brother Zaid played a role, though the surviving brother has denied any conflict.

BAGHDAD

Fugitive VP convicted

Iraq’s fugitive Sunni vice president was sentenced Sunday to death by hanging on charges he masterminded death squads against rivals in a terror trial that has fueled sectarian tensions in the country. Underscoring the instability, insurgents unleashed an onslaught of bombings and shootings across Iraq, killing at least 92 people in one of the deadliest days this year. It’s unlikely that the attacks in 13 cities were all timed to coincide with the afternoon verdict that capped a monthslong case against Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, a longtime foe of Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Still, taken together, the violence and verdict could energize Sunni insurgents bent on returning Iraq to the brink of civil war by targeting Shiites and undermining the government. WYOMING

Bicyclist dies in race

A bicyclist competing in a race from Logan, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyo., crashed on a bridge in Wyoming and fell about 35 feet to his death into the Snake River. Authorities said 42-year-old Robert Verhaaren, of Mesa, Ariz., was participating in the annual LOTOJA race when he swerved to avoid a pothole and crashed on Highway 89 about eight miles from the finish line Saturday afternoon. Race spokesman Dave Bern said the 206-mile race also was marred by serious accidents in Idaho and Wyoming that sent two bicyclists to the hospital and by flat tires experienced by roughly 200 cyclists early on. He said it’s the first fatality in the race’s 30-year history. It’s billed as the longest one-day bicycle race in the country sanctioned by USA Cycling. IOWA CITY, IOWA

FDA warns egg firm

A company that promised to clean up Iowa’s egg industry after a nationwide salmonella outbreak in 2010 said Friday that a recent government safety inspection discovered the bacteria in two of its barns and that it took steps to protect consumers. Centrum Valley Farms said in a statement issued to The Associated Press that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found the strain of bacteria known as salmonella heidelberg in two of six poultry houses that were tested at its production facility in Clarion, Iowa, during a routine inspection in May. The company said the presence of the bacteria in the barns did not mean any eggs were tainted.

Monumental costs WTC memorial splendid, but at a steep price By DAVID B. CARUSO and DAVID PORTER Associated Press

N

EW YORK — With its huge reflecting pools, ringed by waterfalls and skyscrapers, and a cavernous underground museum still under construction, the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center is an awesome spectacle that moved and inspired about 4.5 million visitors in its first year. But all that eye-welling magnificence comes with a jaw-dropping price tag. The foundation that runs the memorial estimates that once the roughly $700 million project is complete, the memorial and museum will together cost $60 million a year to operate. The anticipated cost has bothered some critics and raised concerns even among the memorial’s allies that the budget may be unsustainable without a hefty government subsidy. By comparison, the National Park Service budgeted $8.4 million this year to operate and maintain Gettysburg National Military Park and $3.6 million for the monument that includes the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. Running Arlington National Cemetery, which has more than14,000 graves and receives 4 million visitors a year, costs $45 million annually. Officials at the 9/11 memorial say they face unique challenges that

make comparisons to other national memorials difficult. The foundation plans to spend at least a fifth of its operating budget, or around $12 million per year, on private security because of terrorism fears. Visitors to the memorial plaza pass through airport-like security, and armed guards patrol the grounds. “The fact of the matter is that this was a place that was attacked twice,” said Joseph Daniels, the foundation’s president and chief executive. Just operating the two massive fountains that mark the spots where the twin towers once stood will cost another $4.5 million to $5 million annually, said the foundation’s spokes-

man, Michael Frazier. Foundation officials didn’t respond to requests for information about other costs at the site, including the anticipated expense of running the museum, which is still unfinished and might not be anytime soon. The museum was supposed to open this month, but construction all but ceased a year ago because of a funding squabble between the foundation and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land the memorial sits on. Daniels said it will take at least a year for the museum to open once construction resumes, meaning the site may not be fully complete until at least 2014.

AMMAN, Jordan — A car bomb ripped through Syria’s largest city of Aleppo on Sunday, killing at least 17 people and wounding 40 in one of the main battlegrounds of the country’s civil war, state-run media said. Al-Qaida-style bombings have become increasingly common in Syria, and Western officials say there is little doubt that Islamist extremists, some associated with the terror network, have made inroads in the country as instability has spread. But the main fighting force looking to oust President Bashar Assad is the Free Syrian Army, a group made up largely of defected Syrian soldiers. Sunday’s blast came hours after a Jordanian militant leader linked to alQaida warned that his extremist group will launch “deadly attacks” to help the rebels in Syria topple Assad. In a speech delivered to a crowd of nearly 200 followers protesting outside the prime minister’s office in Amman, Mohammad al-Shalabi, better known as Abu Sayyaf, told Assad that “our fighters are coming to get you.” The warning fueled concern that Syria’s civil war is providing a new forum for foreign jihadists, who fought alongside Iraqi Sunni insurgents after the 2003 invasion of Iraq and are sending fighters to help the Taliban in Afghanistan. A Jordan-based Western diplomat who monitors Syria from his base in Jordan said the number of foreign fighters is about 100 but that figure is gradually rising. He spoke on condition of anonymity, saying identifying him further could risk his ability to gather information on Syria. “From this podium, we declare jihad (holy war) against the wicked Assad, who is shedding the blood of our Sunni Muslim brothers in Syria,” Abu Sayyaf yelled through a loudspeaker. Abu Sayyaf is the head of Jordan’s Salafi Jihadi group, which was blamed for the 2002 assassination of U.S. aid worker Laurence Foley outside his Amman home. He himself was convicted in 2004 of plotting attacks on Jordanian air bases hosting American trainers but served his term and was released last year. The fight for Aleppo, a city of 3 million that was once a bastion of support for President Bashar Assad, is critical for both the regime and the opposition.

Congress returns to Washington for short pre-election session By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Fresh off a fiveweek vacation, lawmakers return to Washington today for a truncated preelection session in which Congress will do what it often does best: punt problems to the future. They face a slew of deadlines and the prospect of a debilitating “fiscal cliff” in January, yet are expected to take a pass on the big issues of taxes and spending cuts. Their focus seems to be on the bare minimum, preventing a government shutdown when the budget year ends Sept. 30. Democrats controlling the Senate and their House GOP rivals also will try to set up votes intended to score political points or paint the other side with an un-

flattering brush two months before the election. Their efforts are sure to be overshadowed by the presidential campaign. Topping the agenda of substantive business is a six-month temporary spending bill to finance the government’s day-to-day operations. The annual appropriations process on Capitol Hill collapsed about midway through the campaign season. The stopgap measure would give the next Congress time to fashion a full-year plan. There would be no more sure way of driving Congress’ approval ratings even lower than for lawmakers to stumble into a government shutdown right before the Nov. 6 vote. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., hope to present the measure this

week, with a House vote as early as Thursday. The measure also will ensure a steady flow of money into disaster aid accounts. More challenging is what to do with one of the most significant pieces of leftover business, a five-year farm bill. It would overhaul crop safety net programs while funding the food stamp program that now provides assistance to more than 46 million people. The current farm act expires at the end of September. House Republican leaders are wary of bringing the bill to the floor. It now appears that Congress will at most opt for a temporary extension of the old bill, including drought aid for livestock producers whose assistance programs expired last year. But it’s not certain lawmakers will do

even that. Without a formal extension, food stamp and other nutrition programs would continue to function beyond Sept. 30. Most farmers would not be affected because the current farm bill covers 2012 crops regardless of when they are harvested. The food and farm legislation has bedeviled House leaders because many GOP conservatives want deeper cuts to food stamps than Democrats, whose votes are needed to pass the measure, are willing to go for. In all likelihood, political votes are on tap. New York Sen. Charles Schumer, a key Democratic Party strategist, wants a procedural vote on the House Republican budget plan written by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the GOP vice presidential nominee.

September 8, 2012

avid Crawford Hall, a longtime D resident of the Back Mountain, died early Sunday morning, Sept. 9,

2012 at his home in Dallas after a brief illness. He was 88. Mr. Hall was born March 1, 1924, in Marietta, Ohio, to Allen and Ida Davis Hall. He grew up in Marietta and attended Marietta High School. He was a graduate of Princeton University, where he received a bachelor’s degree, and Harvard University, where he received a master’s in engineering. During World War II, he served his country in the Aleutian Islands working on airstrips that were developed for the war effort. He originally moved to the area in the late ’40s, when he married Marian Newton Powell, a native of the Back Mountain and the daughter of William and Janet Powell, then lived in California for many years where he owned a metal perforating company. For a brief period they lived in Panama, where he did civil engineering work related to canal transportation, and then on their return to the area, he went to work for her family’s company, Diamond Manufacturing Company. They had three children, David, Patricia and William. When they divorced in the late 1950s, he moved back to California. For many years he ran Diamond Perforated Metals Inc. in Gardena, California. He successfully steered the business from its base in perforated metal into expanded metal and provided many of the metal dividers in the state’s freeway system. In the late 1970s, the business was sold to Toyomenka, a Japanese trading company. He then moved to New York, where he lived for about a year, examining potential acquisitions in North and South America for Toyomenka. In the early 1980s he and his second wife, Kathryn Shindel Valentine, moved back to the Wyoming Valley to be closer to her children, Jonathan and Frederick, who still live here. He and Fred Valentine went into the printing business together, buying Llewellyn and McKane, which Mr. Valentine now owns and runs. A successful businessman, he always gave generously to his community and to his family, with a particular dedication to education. He served on the board of trustees of Wilkes College and the board of the Northeastern Philharmonic. Mr. Hall was a founding member of the Huntsville Golf Club, where he was a regular fixture until the last

year or so, when he found it more difficult to get around. He was a modest man with a dry sense of humor and was well-known in the Wilkes Barre area as an avid and accomplished bridge player. His local bridge-playing friends were a crucial community, and he often wondered aloud how anyone could live without bridge. He won many tournaments and even in the last week of his life played bridge online. He was an old Life Master having surpassed 2500 MP’s. He played at the Jewish Community Center for many years, as well as in other venues and online for many hours a week with his son David. He liked to tell his friends and family that his mother neglected to suggest a career but insisted on three things: that he learn golf, tennis and bridge. He obeyed her directives on all three, although in later years he had to give up tennis and golf. He was predeceased by his wife, Kathryn, in 2002, and by his sisters, Dr. Alida Harrington and Dr. Virginia Goodrich. He leaves a large and devoted family: his son David, known as Deke, his wife, Susan, of Leesport, Pa., and their children, David and Jessie; daughter, Patricia Hall, known as Trish, and her husband, Lawrence Wolhandler and their daughter, Hally, all of New York; son William Hall, known as Bill, and his wife, Denise Strojny-Hall, of Bethesda, Md., and their children Emily and Justin; his stepsons, Jonathan Valentine and his wife, Mary, of Dallas and his children, Susan and Jonathan; Fred Valentine of Dallas and his son, Alex.

McGuire sister has died By BOB CHRISTIE Associated Press

PHOENIX — Dorothy McGuire Williamson, who teamed with sisters Christine and Phyllis for a string of hits in the ’50s and ’60s as the popular McGuire Sisters singing group, has died. She was 84. Williamson died Friday at her son’s home in the Phoenix suburb of Paradise Valley, daughter-inlaw Karen Williamson said. She had Parkinson’s disease and agerelated dementia. The McGuire Sisters earned six gold records for hits including 1954’s “Sincerely” and 1957’s “Sugartime.” The sisters were known for their sweet harmonies and identical outfits and hairdos. They began singing together as children at their mother’s Ohio church and then performed at weddings and church revivals. They got their big break on “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” show in 1952 where they continued to perform for seven years. The group made numerous appearances on television and toured into the late 1960s, making a last performance together on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1968. Dorothy stepped back to raise her two sons, Williamson said. Christine also raised a family while Phyllis pursued a solo career, according to a 1986 profile in People Magazine after the trio reunited and began doing nightclub and Las Vegas performances again. The sister last performed together in the mid-2000s, and are featured on a 2004 PBS show called “Magic Moments - Best of 50s Pop.” “They were a talent at a time when you had to have talent — it couldn’t be done as it is now,” said Williamson, who is married to McGuire’s son, Rex. “Truly, their harmonies were some of the best and God-given and they always knew that and never took that for granted.” The group performed for five presidents and Queen Elizabeth II of Britain. They were inducted into the National Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001.

WORLD OPINION

Send American deserter back to her Uncle Sam

T

HE CANADA Border Services Agency is right to order American deserter Kimberly Rivera to return to the United States by Sept. 20. Rivera has been living in Toronto since 2007 with her husband and children – ever since she decided she didn’t want to be deployed to Iraq. Rivera’s situation stands in sharp contrast to those who fled to Canada to avoid U.S. military service during the Vietnam War. Those individuals had been drafted against their will. Rivera chose to enlist in the United States’ all-volunteer army. She simply didn’t want to go to Iraq, so she abandoned her unit by coming to Canada while on leave and applying for refugee status. Rivera is now awaiting a response to her application to

stay in Canada on humanitarian grounds, but this plea deserves to be rejected. She knew when she enlisted for military service that she might very well be sent to a war zone. Moreover, “humanitarian grounds” is hyperbole in her situation. If she is deported, she will not be sent to some Third World country where she faces the prospect of torture. She’ll go back to the United States and the likelihood of a year in prison, the type of sentence two other deserters expelled from Canada under similar circumstances in the past few years have faced. People must take responsibility for their actions, and Canada should not be a dumping ground for soldiers who refuse to do their duty. Calgary Herald

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Compared to other White House families, this is clearly the most functional.” Doug Wead An expert on presidential offspring, and the author of “All the President’s Children,” he commented on President Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, who made a rare public appearance during last week’s Democratic National Convention.

Uncomfortable history

J

APAN-SOUTH KOREA relations are souring again over the issue of “comfort women,” who were forced to provide sex to Japanese soldiers before and during World War II. What opened up the discord was South Korean President Lee Myung-bak’s comment that he landed on one of the disputed Takeshima islets on Aug. 10 because the Japanese government had made no progress on the comfort women issue despite Seoul’s demand for compensation. The islets in the Sea of Japan, controlled by South Korea, are claimed by Japan. In response, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told a Diet committee that the government could not confirm the existence of documents that

showed that the women were taken by force. South Koreans took his remarks as a distortion of history, and protests are spreading across South Korea. We wonder if it was appropriate for Lee to incite nationalism by bringing up disagreements on the question of history. In prior years, the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament adopted resolutions demanding the Japanese government apologize for the comfort women issue, describing it as “one of the largest cases of human trafficking in the 20th century.” It was a warning by international society against Japanese politicians who are still unable to squarely face the mistakes Japan made in the past. The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo

Work for gender balance

T

HE EVENING Standard debate, hosted by Google, on how best to promote women in boardrooms was lively and stimulating. It took place as the European Union proposed that 40 percent of non-executive directors of larger listed companies should be women. That idea got short shrift, though attorney Cherie Booth felt that good intentions alone had not achieved enough. The consensus was that it is executive positions that matter most. The priority is for companies to encourage able women to consider promotion and acquire

the right experience for it. Quite simply, companies and institutions will not flourish as they might if they do not deploy the talent of the whole workforce, nearly half of whom are women. This is not a matter of quotas but about a willingness to encourage talented women to consider higher positions and to help find ways to make it possible for those with dependents to combine work and family responsibilities. Diversity in workplaces is not just a matter of gender – but a better balance of the sexes is in all our interests. London Evening Standard

or more than 10 years, the issue of “grandparents raising grandchildren” has been a major concern in this area as well as much of Pennsylvania and the nation. The news media, particularly The Times Leader, has helped spread this important message as well as information on where to find help. The local Coalition of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, which has included many area agencies, has done much to assist grandparents in accessing needed services. It has done this through major conferences as well as personal contacts with grandparents and their grandchildren. While there has been progress in helping many people with this very serious plight, we are finding that there are families whose members are embarrassed, confused or very private and therefore do not seek needed services. While we honor the choices made by families, we do wish to convey that a very important conference will be held on Friday morning at the Genetti Hotel and Convention Center in downtown WilkesBarre. Issues to assist people in navigating the systems as well as how to access services will be key topics. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Better off? Not long ago national news was bleak

R

epublican presidential nominee Mitt Romney wants to know if we’re better off today than we were four years ago. Here are some headlines from around the country from four years ago this month: “Stock shock felt round the world. Gets ‘nasty’ as Lehman tanks, Merrill vanishes, AIG wobbles” (New York Daily News). “Depression coming? Boil some beans; ladies who quilt give tips on surviving tough times” (Albuquerque Journal). “One day on the brink: On Wednesday, it seemed U.S. economy might collapse” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). “ ‘Great Depression’ closer than U.S. admits, report finds” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). “Will Bush become the new Hoover?” (Politico). “Developers bend under housing meltdown” (Colorado Springs Gazette). “Depression seen possible” (Florida News-Press). “Wall Street meltdown continues” (CNN). “Is it really the next ‘Great Depression’?” (NPR). “Behind closed doors, warnings of calamity” (The New York Times).

Does that answer your question, Mitt? Did you think we would forget? Wayne Warner Clarks Green

There should be balance between wealth, power

I

n response to the recent fear-mongering: Any system taken to the extreme becomes corrupt. And the corrupt people among us always will find a way to exploit that system. I’m not a President Obama fan, but those people using the scare tactic of socialism are citing a corrupt form of it engendered by the former Soviet Union and other power-hungry countries alive today. Our capitalist country today is as corrupt as any one of those. Rampant socialism gives those people in power the ability to distribute wealth as they see fit: usually to those who agree with them and keep them in power. Rampant capitalism allows those in power to attain all the wealth and henceforth control those in power with it. Happy-happy, joy-joy lies somewhere in between. Let people keep what they make but require them to contribute “substantially” to the society in which they made it. Do not allow them to become overwhelmed with greed and get richer by stepping on the backs of those who contribute to their success. If we were more noble creatures, we wouldn’t have this problem. But sadly, too many in power get obsessed with power and gaining more of it in fear of losing it. Michael Mozeleski Fairview Township

Memories of Mr. Tope live on in halls of GAR

I

’d like to add my voice to Corny Salvaterra’s praise of former GAR teacher Meyer Tope (“GAR teacher had a lasting impact,” Aug. 26). I recently went along on a courtesy tour of the high school during my wife’s class reunion festivities. As I anticipated, only a

DOONESBURY: FLASHBACK

few areas of the building resembled the GAR of my youth. But while walking the halls again, one particular teacher came to mind: Mr. Tope. I’ll wager almost every one of his former mathematics students can come up with a fond anecdote of him. Corny is right; Mr. Tope made a lasting impression on many of his charges. And while we were at opposite ends of the student body spectrum, Corny, I also remember your name and Grenadier football. Bill Traynham Hanover

Women should be aware of heart attack symptoms

I

f there’s one thing Rosie O’Donnell is known for, it’s not being afraid to speak her mind – usually to get a laugh. However, her message about her recent heart attack is truly serious and might save lives. As a two-time heart attack survivor and an active volunteer with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, I hear stories similar to Rosie’s – women who don’t recognize their heart attack symptoms and delay calling 911. Data suggest that only one in five women believes heart disease is her greatest health threat, and nearly half say they would do something other than call 911 if they were experiencing symptoms of an attack. Although women might experience heart attack symptoms typical of men (crushing chest pain, pain in the left arm), they also might experience a wide range of less-recognized symptoms including shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, unusual fatigue and pain in the back, shoulders and jaw. I presented differently with each of my heart attacks. WomenHeart urges any woman (or man) who experiences these symptoms to: 1) Call 911 within five minutes of the onset of symptoms; do not drive yourself or let family or friends drive you to the hospital. 2) Chew and swallow one regular fullstrength aspirin with a glass of water as soon as possible. 3) Once at the hospital, speak up and make it clear you are having symptoms of a heart attack. Too often, delay in recognition of these symptoms and seeking emergency care results in irreversible heart damage or even death. This is not a laughing matter, and Rosie has done a great service by raising awareness. Remember: It is your life, so be your own advocate for heart health awareness. Sharon Hinchey Kingston

State and local police investigate a shooting on Sunday at Bonnie’s Bar on Main Street in Plymouth.

SHOOTING Continued from Page 1A

Hollman said his brother, who is black, was at Bonnie’s for the first time and standing at the bar located just inside the doorway when Allabaugh returned. “He opened the door and shot him in the head,” Hollman said. Hollman said Allabaugh went outside and fired more shots, striking Luzetsky, who was in the area. “The person who shot (Allabaugh) had license to carry,” Hollman said. A neighbor said five shots were heard and shell casings were found in the bar and outside. Police had not released any specifics on the investigation as of Sunday night. The shootings occurred two months after three people were shot and killed and a fourth person critically injured during a drug deal in an apartment building on First and Orchard streets. Half brothers Shawn Hamilton,

18, and Sawud Davis, 16, both of Philadelphia, were charged in the July 7 shootings and have been held without bail at the county prison. Plymouth Mayor Dorothy Petrosky said the bar where the shootings occurred was not a trouble spot. “It was a surprise,” she said. Petrosky heard from residents and planned to speak to council. “I feel we do need a couple more police officers,” she said. The department has four fulltime officers, but one is out on disability leave, the mayor said. The department also has four officers who work part-time. Petrosky said the borough is in a tough spot concerning hiring additional police. Some people will accept raising taxes to pay for the officers and some are adamantly opposed to a tax hike. The borough cannot count on the Pennsylvania State Police for additional help because they are overwhelmed too, she said. “It’s up to us,” Petrosky said, adding the borough has to “be more proactive” in crime prevention.

when he was alive, of course, but he and I spoke of the need for something like this,” the Rev. John Hartman said. “An elderly parishioner lost her son unexpectedly, and had to scrounge for money for a $1,000 burial of his ashes. We wanted to create a place for our parishioners so that they wouldn’t have to worry about something like that.” Hartman said the details still need to be worked out, but he would like to be able to include the ability for Christians who are not members of the church to also have a place in the gardens, possibly with a fee. As for the pets, any are welcome. “When this was announced, we had many people in the neighborhood asking if it would be possible to put their pets’ remains here, even if they aren’t members, and they are absolutely welcome. It’ll be a multidenominational pet resting place,” Hartman said with a smile. As far as he knows, it might be the only one of its kind in the area, as he hasn’t heard of any other churches offering such a home for

a pet’s final resting place. The garden will consist of several benches for meditation and prayer, trees, a stone walkway and iron fencing. Griff Keefer, buildingand-grounds manager at the church, said it takes on the style of an English garden. There will also be a cross made from the steel of beams that were at the World Trade Center in the garden, a piece made by Rusty’s friend Jim Faba. Hartman, Kathi and Susan Youells, senior warden of the church, broke the ground for the garden. “It was traditional in the Anglican church, when you break ground on a church, cemetery or memorial grounds, to outline it in rope,” Hartman said, standing among a large crowd of people who knew Rusty well. Instead of outlining the entire area, a rectangle in the spot of where a reflection area will be made was laid out, an “X” in the middle of it. “In the old church, an X was the sign of Christ,” Hartman said. “The groundbreaking will take ground from the very center, on the X, to signify that we are with Christ.” Building for the garden is expected to begin Saturday, with hopes it will be completed by Nov. 4 for All Saints Day observance.

WEST PITTSTON -- A group of worshipers assembled at the First Presbyterian Church on Sunday to observe the one year anniversary of the flood that ravaged the church along with a portion of the community in 2011. The cavernous assembly hall showed the signs of the recent inundation with solid-wood pews set askew on bare unfinished floors and 3 feet of wainscoting removed along the sanctuary’s perimeter revealing rows of longhidden framing and studs. Church officials provided temporary seating and power for the hour-long worship service. “This building can be made whole again for a price,” Pastor James Thyren told his congregation, which, since the flood, has been meeting at the former St. Cecilia’s Church in Exeter. “We are taking our time in this ‘Season of Discernment’ to decide how we will proceed with our plans for the structure and if, in fact, it is worth

The agency supports community efforts to explore ideas that reduce flood risks and improve public safety and security, he said. “We also don’t limit ourselves to just one option. We use the best science available to study the conditions and develop a host of viable alternatives, from structural – such as a dam or levee – to non-structural – such as a flood warning system, or any

duces endurance,” he said. “The river has tested our faith here both in1972 and again in 2011. We need to decide if it’s worth fixing a structure which may again be ravaged by the waters of the Susquehanna.” Thyren wanted to express his gratitude to the pastor and people

combination of each,” he said. Finding the most “effective, affordable and environmentally viable” solution is the goal, he said. Henrich said she came up with the idea because she spends a lot of time fishing and hiking at the Francis E. Walter Dam, which stopped flooding in Jim Thorpe and other downstream Lehigh River communities. More levees would be ineffective, Henrich believes. If a levee was built in West Pittston, which is unlikely because of the cost, it would send more

water into Duryea, she said, comparing levees to a girdle. “It holds in the tummy, but the excess pops up above, like a muffin top. Levees don’t make water go away, they just push it somewhere else,” she said. Economic benefits touted Henrich believes some upstate area would be receptive to a hydroelectric dam because it would create jobs and a lake with recreational opportunities. Without a dam, more homes and businesses in the Wyoming Valley will be forced to leave through buyouts after future

Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena cautioned that no flood-control system is a cure-all. He pointed to the Johnstown flood of 1889, when the South Fork dam failed, releasing 20 million tons of water and killing 2,209 people. “Dams – like levees – have tops on them, and if you overtop a dam or the dam fails, you have Johnstown,” Brozena said.

nior Curtis Dukes as the top healthy option in the backfield. With the new, more complex offense, McGloin’s health will be the biggest concern this week after twice banging his throwing arm on the helmet of a pass-rusher in the second quarter of the 1716 loss. McGloin missed just one full drive and the start of the second half before returning to throw for nearly 200 yards on top of two touchdowns. The senior scored points with his teammates for playing hurt and putting the Lions in a position to win, leading the team into field goal range in the final 90 seconds.

“The guy’s a warrior,” guard John Urschel said. “He loves to play football and loves to battle. He got banged up, but he came back out there, he worked hard and he’s definitely a big leader of this team.” That type of support will be critical going forward if Penn State is going to maintain a unified locker room. Linebacker Michael Mauti was frustrated after the game as the defense forced four turnovers inside the Virginia 30-yard line but the offense came away with just three points. On top of it all, the Lions have to deal with the possibility that their roster from two months ago -- before the NCAA sanctions and the transfers -- would be 2-0. There was no Silas Redd to grind out yards with the lead against Ohio in the second half. And, more obviously, there was

By ROXY ROXBOROUGH VEGAS VIGORISH: If you jumped all over Savannah State at +70.5 against Florida State, and thought you had a winner when the game was called in the third quarter, OOPS, you didn’t. According to the house rules at most sportsbooks in Las Vegas, a game must go 55 minutes in order for it to be an actionable wager. Actionable meaning, winners gets paid, and losers start ripping their tickets. So basically, in this case, everyone gets a refund. Actually, the biggest winner was Savannah State, which collected $475,000 for playing the Seminoles in Tallahassee. The Tigers from Savannah also got $385,000 for playing Oklahoma State last week. They lost that game 84-0 as a mere 67.5 point underdog. These crazy Tigers have been outscored 139-0, but made $860,000 in two weeks. So for every point Savannah gave up, they pocketed $6187.05, give or take a nickel. BASEBALL Favorite

no Anthony Fera against Virginia as the Lions missed four field goals and had an extra point blocked. Fera’s defection to Texas may turn out to be the costliest for the Lions, as they have struggled early on to replace him as both a kicker and a punter. Sam Ficken is 1-for-5 on field goals. Alex Butterworth is averaging 38 yards per punt, with that number getting a boost from a career-best 52-yarder in the fourth quarter on Saturday. Last season Fera was 14-for-17 on field goals and didn’t miss on any kicks under 40 yards. He also averaged 42 yards per punt. Redd, meanwhile topped 100 yards for USC on Saturday. Not that Penn State can afford to dwell on the players who have left the program. “That doesn’t even your

As Sunday’s third set commenced, Williams’ mother, Oracene Price, told her from the stands, “Settle down.” Didn’t happen right away. “Well, she’s a human being, you know, who has two feet, two legs, two hands,” Azarenka said. “It’s understandable.” When Williams double-faulted, slapped a bad backhand into the net and pushed a forehand long, Azarenka broke at love for a 4-3 edge, then followed that up by holding for 5-3. One game from the championship. Azarenkawastwopointsawayat 30-all with the fourth-seeded Williams serving in the next game, but couldn’t convert. And when Azarenka served for the victory at 5-4, she showed the jitters that probably are understandable given that this was only her second career Grand Slam final, 17 fewer than Williams. Azarenka made three errors in that game, including a forehand into the net that let Williams break herto5-all.Williamskeptwhatever excitement she might have felt contained, face straight as possible, while her older sister, seventime major champion Venus, smiled and clapped in the stands.

BALTIMORE — Slumping Curtis Granderson came off the bench to hit his 35th homer and drive in five runs, and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-3 Sunday to regain sole possession of first place in the AL East and earn an important split of the season series. Derek Jeter also homered for the Yankees, who lead the Orioles by one game with 22 left. Each team won twice in a four-game set that drew 173,572 fans, including 40,346 in the finale. New York finished 9-9 against Baltimore this season. Now, if the teams are tied at the end of the regular season, record within the division will serve as the tiebreaker.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III rushes past New Orleans Saints linebacker David Hawthorne in the first half of an NFL game against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday.

For openers, RGIII is impressive in victory The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Robert Griffin III began his NFL career by connecting on 19 of 26 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns, and the Washington Redskins handed the Saints a 40-32 loss in their first game since the bounty scandal that overshadowed New Orleans’ offseason. Griffin completed his first eight passes, including an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon, tying for the second-longest scoring pass by a quarterback making his NFL debut. Rookie running back Alfred Morris rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Aldrick Robinson, making his NFL debut, had a touchdown catch among four receptions for 52 yards. Drew Brees uncharacteristically struggled with accuracy, completing only 46 percent of his throws with two interceptions. But his 339 yards passing and three TDs kept the Saints in the game until his last desperate pass was picked off by Reed Doughty near the Redskins’ goal line. Bears 41, Colts 21 CHICAGO — Jay Cutler threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns and Michael Bush added a pair of scoring runs to spoil quarterback Andrew Luck’s debut. Brandon Marshall had nine catches for 119 yards and a touchdown in his first game since being reunited with Cutler, and Matt Forte ran for 80 yards and a score. Luck finished his first NFL game 23 of 45 for 309 yards with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery early in the fourth quarter. He also was intercepted three times — twice by Tim Jennings — in an up-and-down effort as he steps in for the departed Peyton Manning. Vikings 26, Jaguars 23 MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie Blair Walsh kicked four field goals, including a 55-yarder as regulation time expired and another one in overtime, and Adrian Peterson returned from a left knee injury to lift the Vikings. Peterson ran 17 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns for the Vikings, who led for most of the second half until Blaine Gabbert’s 39-yard touchdown heave with 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter put the Jaguars back in front. Lions 27, Rams 23 DETROIT — Matthew Stafford threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Smith with 10 seconds left. Stafford made up for a shaky game by leading an 80yard, nine-play, game-winning possession that included three passes of at least 18 yards. Jets 48, Bills 28 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes, including two to rookie Stephen Hill, and the Jets eased concerns about their offense. The Jets sprinkled in their wildcat package with Tim Tebow, who was mostly quiet but recovered a late onside kick by Buffalo, and Jeremy

Kerley had a touchdown catch and a punt return for a score. Antonio Cromartie also took one of New York’s three interceptions of Ryan Fitzpatrick to the end zone.

Texans 30, Dolphins 10 HOUSTON — Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston’s defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami. Tannehill threw three interceptions in a 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a Super Bowl season. Patriots 34, Titans 13 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tom Brady threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns, and the defending AFC champions won easily. Brady may have suffered a broken nose when he was sacked in the second quarter by Kamerion Wimbley, but he didn’t miss a play. The Patriots ruined Jake Locker’s debut as Tennessee’s starter, sacking him twice and forcing two turnovers. Rookie Dont’a Hightower returned Locker’s fumble 6 yards for a TD in his own debut, and Stevan Ridley ran for 125 yards and a TD. Falcons 40, Chiefs 24 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Matt Ryan threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns, one of them to Tony Gonzalez in his return to Kansas City. Ryan also ran for a TD, while Julio Jones caught six passes for 108 yards and two scores. The Falcons took advantage of a Chiefs defense missing four starters. Pro Bowl linebacker Tamba Hali was suspended for an unspecified violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy, and three others were injured. Falcons 40, Chiefs 24 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Matt Ryan threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns, one of them to Tony Gonzalez in his return to Kansas City. Ryan also ran for a TD, while Julio Jones caught six passes for 108 yards and two scores. Buccaneers 16, Panthers 7 TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay’s rejuvenated defense came up with two interceptions against Cam Newton and the Buccaneers won their debut under coach Greg Schiano. Josh Freeman threw a 6yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams and Connor Barth kicked three field goals to help the Bucs stop a 10-game losing streak that prompted the firing of former coach Raheem Morris. Schiano came the Tampa after spent the past 11 seasons transforming Rutgers from one of the losingest programs in college football into a Big East contender. Cardinals 20, Seahawks 16 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Kevin Kolb replaced injured John Skelton and led Arizona on the deciding touchdown drive, throwing 6 yards to Andre Roberts for a score with 4:59 to play.

SCOREBOARD Monday, Sept. 10 Cincinnati at Baltimore, 7 p.m. The Bengals will try to grab a road division win to open the season against Baltimore, which swept Cincinnati last season. The Ravens will have a moment of silence before the game for former owner Art Modell, who died last week. San Diego at Oakland, 10:15 p.m. Carson Palmer and Darren McFadden will play together for the first time as teammates when the AFC West rivals meet. San Diego knocked Oakland out of the playoffs last season with a 38-26 win in the season finale.

MARKING A MILESTONE

Shannon Eastin used her left hand to tuck her pony tail under her cap after the national anthem and got ready for work. She seemed to do her job, which ended by helping separate St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions players after some shoving, pushing and shouting broke out following the final play. Eastin became the first woman to be an official in an NFL regular-season game, working as the line judge in the Rams-Lions matchup. “It’s a great milestone,” Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said after his team beat St. Louis 27-23. “But we didn’t think about it all during the game.” That’s probably just the way she — and the league — liked it. Eastin is among the replacement officials hired by the league while the regular officials are locked out. Replacement officials are working games for the first time in 11 years.

BRADY'S BUNCH

Tom Brady surpassed John Elway for fifth in TD passes in NFL history. The Patriots’ win also marked his 33rd straight game with a TD pass. He also became the 14th player with 40,000 yards passing in his career. He has 40,215 yards, just shy of Johnny Unitas (40,239) for 13th. ... Brady has sole possession of fifth for career wins by a quarterback with 125. ... Brady is 5-1 against Tennessee and has 10 TDs in those games.

FLAG DAY

The day for Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden started on a comical note as he got trapped under a 100-yard-long flag being unfurled across the field for the national anthem. As he was warming up, the colossal U.S. flag was carried out, and before he knew what had happened, Weeden found himself scrambling on the ground.

WORKING OVERTIME

Minnesota’s 26-23 win over Jacksonville was the first time since the NFL’s new overtime scoring rule was installed last season, the first team to score didn’t immediately run off the field a winner. The Vikings got a 38-yard field goal from Blair Walsh and then stopped the Jaguars to wrap up the victory.

Female replacement official breaks gender barrier By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer

DETROIT — Shannon Eastin used her left hand to tuck her pony tail under her cap after the national anthem and got ready for work. She seemed to do her job, which ended by helping to separate St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions players after some shoving, pushing and shouting broke out following the final play. Eastin became the first woman to be an official in an NFL regularseason game, working as the line judge in the Rams-Lions matchup Sunday. “It’s a great milestone,” Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said after his team beat St. Louis 27-23. “But we didn’t think about it all during the game.” That’s probably just the way

she — and the league — liked it. Eastin is among the replacement officials hired by the league while the regular officials are locked out. Replacement officials are working games for the first time in 11 years. She became the first female official to work an NFL preseason game last month as the line judge when Green Bay played at San Diego. The Pro Football Hall of Fame has the hat and whistle she used during that preseason game, and they’ll are expected to be displayed in Canton, Ohio. The 42-year-old resident of Tempe, Ariz. has worked as a referee in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference — college football’s second-highest level — and has 16 years of officiating experience. MEAC officials declined comment on Eastin, as did the NFL in

the days leading up to the groundbreaking assignment. “Commenting on individual officials is not something we do,” league spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email. “Her place in league history speaks for itself.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said having Eastin on the field is a great opportunity for her and the league. “She’s well prepared for it, and I think she’ll do terrific,” Goodell said last month. “So we’re excited about that. “And there are more coming, by the way. We’ve been working along this path to try to properly train and prepare a female official, and now we have the opportunity.” The NFL declined to make Eastin available for interviews during the week leading up to the

game and didn’t allow media to have access to her following the Rams-Lions game, but did set up a conference call with her in August. “I hope to show it really doesn’t matter if you are male or female,” Eastin said last month. Eastin walked onto the Ford Field turf about 50 minutes before kickoff Sunday, chatted briefly with a police officer and shook hands with Lions linebackers coach Matt Burke. She then went largely unnoticed as she paced the home team’s sideline during pregame warm-ups. Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote believes it is good for the game to have female officials, even though he worries about her safety working alongside some of the world’s biggest, strongest and fastest athletes.

Ravens, Rice are set for Bengals

Oakland is counting on RB McFaden

Raider quarterback Carson Palmer excited running back is healthy for team’s opener. By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer

OAKLAND, Calif. — Carson Palmer has seen glimpses of what Darren McFadden can bring to the Oakland Raiders offense throughout offseason workouts, training camp and a few series in exhibition games. He can’t wait to see that gamebreaking ability for real for the first time when the season opens tonight against the San Diego Chargers. “It was such a tease in the preseason because he’s really only gotten a series here or there.” Palmer said. “I’m like a kid in a candy store, though. I cannot U P N E X T wait. Just the little that we’ve San Diego seen of him in Chargers the preseason, at he brings so Oakland much to the Raiders field. I’m more 10:15 p.m. tonight excited about ESPN that than anything.” Palmer and McFadden never got a chance to play together last season as McFadden injured his right foot early in the game that Palmer eventually made his Raiders debut in last Oct. 23. The Raiders held out hope that McFadden could return late last season but it never happened, meaning Monday night will be the first time Oakland’s two most important offensive players take the field together in a game that counts. “It’s going to be very joyful,” McFadden said. “I’ll have butterflies, the first time back in a real game situation. I’m looking forward to it. I’m very excited for it. I’m looking to have fun. ... I’m looking forward to getting out there with him. He’s a smart guy who makes the right decisions, puts us in the right situations so it’s going to be a great thing.” Having a healthy McFadden by his side is only one of the big differences for Palmer heading into this season. Last year at this time, Palmer was home on his couch, threatening to retire rather than play again for the Cincinnati Bengals. Palmer got a chance to restart his career when Jason Campbell broke his collarbone and the Raiders traded a first and secondround pick to the Bengals for Palmer on Oct. 18. He was thrown right into the mix five days later, throwing three interceptions in relief against Kansas City despite not knowing the Raiders playbook, taking any first-team snaps or watching film on the Chiefs that week. Palmer was made the starter the next game and had an up-anddown finish to the season despite never getting a chance to learn the whole playbook.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning argues with back judge Steve Freeman during the first quarter of an NFL game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in Denver.

Manning successful in Denver debut By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer

DENVER — Peyton Manning made a successful NFL return from a year’s sabbatical, leading the Broncos past the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19 in his Denver debut Sunday night. The four-time MVP coming off four neck surgeries completed 19 of 26 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns. He got a big assist from another free agent, cornerback Tracy Porter, whose 43-yard interception return of Ben Roethlisberger’s pass with 2 minutes left sealed the win. Manning, jettisoned by the In-

EAGLES Continued from Page 1B

Cleveland Browns on Sunday. With his team trailing 16-10, Vick marched them 91 yards for the go-ahead score on his careerhigh 56th pass. Before that, the superstar played poorly and showed major rustiness after getting just 12 snaps during the preseason because of injuries. But when it mattered most, Vick came through, and the Eagles, who hurt themselves with five turnovers and 12 penalties, prevailed. “I wasn’t going to disappoint my coaches and I wasn’t going to disappoint my teammates,” Vick said. “Whatever it took, I was going to get it done.” Vick went 29 of 56 for 317 yards and threw two TDs, his first to Jeremy Maclin for 18 yards in the final minute of the first half. But besides those two passes, there were moments when Vick forced passes and looked more like a rookie than a four-time Pro Bowler. On the play before his TD pass to Harbor, Vick underthrew Maclin and was nearly intercepted by rookie linebacker L.J.

dianapolis Colts in March after missing all of last season with a nerve injury that weakened his throwing arm, took just two snaps in the third quarter. But one was a 71-yard touchdown throw to Demaryius Thomas, Manning’s first as a Bronco and the 400th of his career. Manning reached the milestone in his 208th career game. Dan Marino did it in his 227th game and Brett Favre in his 228th. Manning spent much of his night on the sideline as Roethlisberger led a clock-chewing offense that had the ball for 10 minutes longer than Denver did. Fort, who let the ball and game slip through his hands. “He threw it right to me,” said Fort, who picked Vick off in the first half. “I should have made that play, definitely.” But in the end, Vick was the one who made the biggest plays. “I thought he was rusty,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “But he kept competing, kept shooting. He’s our quarterback and he had to work through it. He had to play, had to endure and had to tough it out.” Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden threw four interceptions, the last to Kurt Coleman with 1:05 remaining, as Cleveland fell to 1-13 in season openers since 1999. LeSean McCoy rushed for 110 yards for Philadelphia, which trailed 16-10 in the fourth after Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson returned Vick’s fourth pick 27 yards for a touchdown. But even though Cleveland had the lead, there was still plenty of time for Vick. “It didn’t matter what we did for three quarters,” Jackson said. “We had to stop them to win the game. We were on the field to win it and we lost.” With Vick struggling, the Eagles appeared doomed and

At one point, Roethlisberger had taken 30 snaps to Manning’s one — a kneel-down — during two monstrous drives that spanned halftime. “Roethlisberger was awesome on third down,” Manning said of Pittsburgh’s 11-of-19 conversion rate. “Wasn’t much fun sitting on the bench there all night. Great job by our defense in the end, getting that turnover.” When he was between the lines, Manning was masterful. He led Denver on three straight 80-yard touchdown drives and had the Broncos at the Steelers 8 when his next

drive stalled and they settled for Matt Prater’s short field goal and a 25-19 lead with 3 minutes left. Porter stepped in front of Emmanuel Sanders and returned an interception 43 yards for the score a minute later, and Roethlisberger was sacked three times on his last possession after going down just twice all night. Coach John Fox called Porter’s pick “the biggest play of the game.” The Steelers converted some very long third downs as Denver’s defense grew fatigued. Manning was sacked twice and both times bounced right up with no issues.

poised to follow their ill-fated “Dream Team” season with an embarrassing loss. Owner Jeffrey Lurie recently said a second straight 8-8 record would not cut it, and the Eagles were nearly on their way to mediocrity. “We did enough positive things to win the game,” said Reid, whose 15th season in Philadelphia began after a personally difficult summer when his 29year-old son, Garrett, was found dead. “Nobody hung their head. The defense made big play after

big play. But with the turnovers and penalties, we have a lot to take care of.” On the winning drive, the Eagles converted a fourth-and-1 after Vick scrambled for 9 and fumbled on third down. He recovered, but Browns coach Pat Shurmur threw his red challenge flag and asked the replacement officials to review the play. However, referee Ken Roan discussed the play with the booth and announced it was “not challengeable.”

BALTIMORE — After a delightful summer in which he carried the ball only 10 times in the preseason, Ray Rice is ready for some Monday Night football. “It’s sort of like that refreshing feeling, like the first day of school when you want to wear your new clothes,” the Baltimore Ravens running back said. “That’s what tonight is. You put U P N E X T on your best outfit and you’re Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens 7 p.m. tonight ESPN

ready to go. It’s obviously a great feeling, because you know what Monday night is. A lot of great players are made on Monday night. Those are the ones that are remembered.” Many of those prime-time stars can thank Art Modell for the opportunity to showcase their talent on a national stage. Modell, the former majority owner of the Ravens and a man instrumental in making Monday night football a fixture in America, died on Thursday. How fitting that Baltimore’s first game since his death is on Monday night, against the Cincinnati Bengals. “It’s an amazing twist,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “I would say a providential irony, you know? Maybe they are laughing about that up there right now. But Art Modell is a giant. He did pioneer Monday night football.” The Ravens will have a moment of silence before the game, and if linebacker Ray Lewis has his say, the players will draw from Modell’s spirit long after the opening kickoff. “I think Ray and some of the guys that have been around him will get the message across to a lot of the players on this team,” quarterback Joe Flacco said. “This whole organization had a lot of love for him, and I think that will definitely show.” A year ago, Baltimore swept the Bengals behind the running of Rice. It’s quite clear that Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis hasn’t forgotten. Reminded that Rice had a few long runs against the Bengals last year, Lewis interrupted the question and said: “59, 51 and 70.” His memory was sound. The 59-yarder came in the first game between AFC North rivals, a 3124 duel.

Razorbacks knocked out of Top 25 by loss

BMW goes to McIlroy with 67

By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

Rory McIlroy beats elite field for his sixth career win at the age of 23. The Associated Press

CARMEL, Ind. — Rory McIlroy beat the strongest leaderboard in golf this year Sunday in the BMW Championship and joined some elite company. McIlroy made back-to-back birdies around the turn to emerge from a four-way tie and seize control at Crooked Stick. He closed with a 5under 67, making his only bogey on the final hole when it no longer mattered, for a two-shot victory over Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood. Everyone knew Boy Wonder was a special player when he won the U.S. Open McIlroy last summer with a record score. The last month has established him as the dominant player in golf, with three wins in four tournaments loaded with the best players — the PGA Championship and two FedEx Cup playoff events. McIlroy became the first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win in consecutive weeks on the PGA Tour, and with his sixth career win, he joined Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only players to win at least six times at age 23. “I didn’t think everything would happen so quickly, but I’m on a good run at the minute and I want to keep it going as long as I can,” McIlroy said. KINGSMILL CHAMPIONSHIP WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — Paula Creamer and Jiyai Shin had to wait until today to break their deadlock in the Kingsmill Championship. After they each parred the par-4 18th hole eight times in a playoff Sunday, darkness forced the suspension of play for the day. They will resume play Monday morning on the par-4 16th hole. Creamer took a one-stroke lead into the final hole of regulation, but three-putted — missing a 5-footer for par — for a bogey to fall into the playoff. Creamer finished with an even-par 71, and Shin shot a 69, leaving them tied at 16 under on Kingsmill’s River Course. Karine Icher (65) and Danielle Kang (69) tied for third at 14 under. Angela Stanford had a 64 — the best round of the day — match Catriona Matthew (68) at 13 under.

Gordon grabs last Chase spot

By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

RICHMOND, Va. — Fourtime series champion Jeff Gordon felt like his hopes were dead in the water when NASCAR red-flagged his last chance to get into the playoffs because of rain at Richmond International Raceway. His car wasn’t running like it needed to be, and the chance seemed to be slipping away. But just as major adjustments made by his crew started to pay off for Gordon and he began racing up to even challenge for the lead, a gamble by Kyle Busch’s team failed in the biggest way possible: Gordon, not Busch, grabbed the last spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup — the playoffs that begin next weekend. The victory margin? Three points. “I felt like I won the race tonight,” Gordon said early Sunday morning after finishing second to Clint Bowyer. The race was interrupted three times by rain, including the red-flag stoppage. “When that was over, and they told me I was in the Chase, we made it, I mean, I was ecstatic. I was going nuts.” Gordon, once the dominant driver in the sport, hasn’t

Former area man captures Masters national crown Times Leader staff

A former area man can call himself a 2012 national champion and the best cyclist in the United States in his age group. Richard Meeker, formerly of Plymouth and currently a resident of Corona Del Mar, Calif., won the criterium for 50- to 54year-old riders at the U.S. Cycling Masters Road National Championships om Bend, Ore., on Saturday. It was the second year in a row

that Meeker walked away with a Stars-and-Stripes jersey. Last year, he won the criterium in the 45-49 category. The victory Saturday coupled with his second-place finish in the 50-54 road race earlier in the week earned him the Best AllAround Rider award at the event. Meeker has been enjoying a remarkably successful season, at one point recording 14 straight victories.

seemed like Gordon’s troubles were going to decide the issue. Then, when the last caution flew on lap 277 for rain, Gordon, who was a lap down, pitted for tires and fuel and got back on the lead lap as the first car one lap down, and Busch’s crew chief Dave Rogers told his driver to stay out. It was a calculated risk that the rain might linger and end the race early. Instead, the weather cleared, and Gordon’s car was suddenly among the fastest on the track, and Busch was among the drivers on old tires who became sitting ducks for most of the cars on fresh tires. “We missed. That’s it. Plain and simple,” Busch said curtly after the race. He also declined NASCAR’s invitation to come to the media center, and Rogers took the blame. “I blew it. There’s no two ways to look at it,” Rogers said. “... I gave one up today.” As he drifted back in the field late in the race, Busch said very little on his radio, seemingly realizing that the call was going to cost him a spot, and there was nothing he could do about it. He had little to say to Rogers when they met after the race, either.

Breaking down the AP college football poll after Week 2 of the regular season. MAKING A STATEMENT: Arkansas took the plunge. The Razorbacks went from eighth to out of the rankings after a 34-31 overtime loss to LouisianaMonroe on Saturday night in Little Rock. To make matters worse for the Razorbacks, star quarterback Tyler Wilson was knocked out of the game with a possible concussion. And, oh by the way, Arkansas hosts Alabama on Saturday. The Crimson Tide held firm to the stop spot in the rankings, followed by Southern California, LSU and Oregon. The top 10 was virtually unchanged, except for Arkansas. MOVING UP: Collin Klein and Kansas State are demanding to be taken seriously — again. Klein accounted for four touchdowns in a 52-13 victory over Miami in Manhattan, Kan. The rout moved them up six spots in the AP Top 25 to No. 15. MOVING DOWN: All the teams that moved down, also moved out. Joining Arkansas, were Wisconsin, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. All three lost on the road, though none in a more startling fashion than the Badgers. IN AND OUT: No. 22 UCLA and No. 23 Tennessee are back in the rankings for the first time in four years. No. 24 Arizona returned for the first time since November 2010 and No. 25 BYU is in the Top 25 for the first time since the final 2009 poll. UCLA and Arizona rounded out a solid Saturday for the Pac-12 by winning big nonconference games with powerful offensive displays for their new coaches. FROM THE ARCHIVES: The four teams that fell out of the poll all had become mainstays in recent years.

HIGH SCHOOL FIELD HOCKEY PREVIEW

FANTASY SPORTS

First things first: Hand out awards! WILLIAM HAZLITT, an 18th-century British writer once said, “First impressions are often the truest.” He also said, “Summon me a surgeon! I believe I have the French Pox!” But no one ever remembers him for that. It’s the first quote that matters most here. Because this is the week the NFL got to make its first impressions on us for 2012. But is what we saw this week really the “truest” example of what the rest of the year will bring? Or is it just a fluke? There’s only one way to find out. Come up with some superficial Week One awards, that’s how. THE “WHERE WERE YOU ON DRAFT DAY” AWARD: Kevin Ogletree, WR, Cowboys. While Dez Bryant and Miles Austin were arguing over who’s the best Dallas wideout, Ogletree was busy scoring two touchdowns. Don’t think Mr. Ogletree is a one-week wonder either. With Jason Witten banged up, Austin’s injury history and Bryant’s habit of being lessthan-stellar, he could be a steal. THE “WHY ARE YOU GIGGLING AT MY NAME” AWARD: Cecil Shorts, WR, Jaguars. He was Jacksonville’s leading receiver Sunday and made a snazzy TD, but don’t go and pick up your Shorts just yet. Most of Shorts’ work came in an all-hands-on-deck scramble to tie the game. Given the choice, Jacksonville would prefer to run the ball, and not become an air show. Shorts’ fantasy stud career won’t be a long one. THE “KICK IN THE GROIN” AWARD: Fred Jackson, RB, Bills. You drafted Jackson in the early rounds and expected big things. And then, he hurts a part of the knee called the lateral collateral ligament. A sprained LCL isn’t season-ending, but it’s never good when something in the “CL” family gets hurt. He’s going to miss some time. THE “DON’T PANIC!” AWARD: Chris Johnson, RB, Titans. It’s understandable if you’re having flashbacks to 2011. Johnson disappointed more owners last year than the bank teller does when she runs out of lollipops and the kids are in the car. Yes, CJ managed just four rushing yards Sunday, but don’t throw him overboard yet. Tennessee tends to abandon the run when it faces huge deficits – something a lot of teams face when they play the Patriots. And Johnson was used often as a receiver, so he still managed to put up points. He’ll be fine. THE “I THINK WE HAVE OUR WAIVER-WIRE DEFENSE” AWARD: Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s hard to say the Bucs will be a great defense in 2012, but they looked like the most-improved unit on Sunday. They had two interceptions, three sacks and it seemed like every time Cam Newton dropped back to pass, someone was in his face. If you have the room, stash these guys on your roster. THE “PATIENCE, GRASSHOPPER.” AWARD: Robert Griffin III, QB, Redskins. Aren’t rookies supposed to have first game jitters? All RG3 did was throw for 320 yards, two TDs and lead the Redskins to an impressive win over the Saints. But before you anoint him the next Cam Newton, remember the Saints defense was never very good and has been in disarray with all this bounty business. We’ll know what we have in Griffin by weeks five or six. Don’t get too excited until then. THE “NEVER RUN THAT COMMERCIAL AGAIN” AWARD: Will someone please drive to whatever ad company is responsible, find the master copy of the tape for that Cars.com commercial where the woman’s head comes out of her hair and starts singing, and DESTROY IT! It’s like a little, creepy alien head trying to sell me cars. And it’s wrong.

From left, Marnie, Mallory, and Melanie Kusakavitch of Holy Redeemer’s field hockey team have become use to being referered to as the ‘triplets.’ Mallory and Melanie are twins, while Marnie is 17 months older.

Royals have dynamic trio By JOHN MEDEIROS jmedeiros@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- With twins Ashley and Lauren Bernardi now in Northwestern uniforms, Wyoming Valley Conference opponents know they still have to deal with the Kusakavitch “triplets.” As the Royals made their way to a second consecutive appearance in the district semifinals, the trio drew intrigue and admiration from opposing fans. With alliterative first names (Melanie, Mallory and Marnie), consecutive uniform numbers (23, 24 and 25, respectively) and similar passions for field hockey, the trio can -- at times -- be hard to tell apart, even for their teammates. They’ve grown used to the “triplets” references by people and even embrace it a bit. “Oh yeah, we hear it a lot,” said Marnie, a senior forward and the oldest of the trio. “We’re only 17 months apart, so we kind of understand. It’s not a big deal to us.” “We just go with it,” said Melanie, a junior forward and Mallory’s twin. “Why not?” The sisters are leaders for a Holy Redeemer squad that is expected to challenge for another Wyoming Valley Con-

“We’re always pushing each other. We all have our strengths and we all have our things we’re still working on.”

ference Division 2 title. They want to give state tournament action a try this season as well. “We have a real fast forward line this year” Mallory said. “We have a very good team this season.” “We have nine games on grass this season,” added Melanie. “Our grass here is the best that it’s ever been.” There’s added inspiration for the trio this season because this could be their final season on the same team. “Of course we’re going to miss Marnie next season,” Mallory said. “We’ve been playing this sport together forever. We’re so proud of Marnie, though. She just committed to West Chester.” “Maybe we’ll play with here there,” Melanie said. All of the sisters are tremendous athletes. Marnie was a second team All-State selection last season, but each of them play at an elite level. After the season, Mallory is

part of the Royals’ district champion swim team. Then spring comes and the sisters are state qualifiers on Holy Redeemer’s track team. Each of them was on at least one relay team and all three siblings are members of the district champion 400 relay unit. “We’re always pushing each other,” Marnie said. “We all have our strengths and we all have our things we’re still working on.” “We talk,” Mallory added. “We’re very competitive.” “But we know when to shut up,” Melanie stated. They are back on their home field after last year’s flooding washed away their home games, and even home practices. The Kusakavitches plan to do everything they can to make sure it is special. “I’m glad to be back here,” Marnie said. “We didn’t know what to expect.” Royals opponents know what to expect from the sisters and are watching out for them.

Another HR family affair Cousins Selina and Allie Malacari will both be starters for the Royals. By JOHN MEDEIROS jmedeiros@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- As if having three Kusakavitch girls on the roster wouldn’t be enough for a team which graduated a set of twins after last season, Holy Redeemer’s opponents will also have to face the Malacari “sisters” this season. “You can call us that,” senior defender Allie Malacari said. “We can finish each other’s sentences and stuff.” Allie is joined in the Royals’ starting lineup this season by cousin Selena Malacari, a senior who has taken over as the starting goalie for the team. The opportunity to be on the field together as seniors completes the circle for the pair. “We used to live just two or three houses away from each other growing up,” Selena said. Allie was a second team All-State player last season on the Royals’ backline. One can only wonder what would have happened if things turned out differently years ago. “We fought for the position,” Allie said of a goaltending battle back in junior high. “But we’re both really happy. We never really got to play together, so this is a special opportunity for us.” Selena had to wait for her turn behind standout keeper Elizabeth Nicholas, who graduated last season.

Cousins Selina (left) and Allie Malacari will both play key roles for the Holy Redeemer field hockey team this year.

“I really enjoy it,” Selena said. “I get to tell everyone where to go on defense. I’m in charge. I feel like there’s probably a little pressure on me, but we know how to handle pressure. It’s my year to shine.” Having one of the best around playing right in front of her will surely be a boon to Selina’s game. “We’re both striving to do so well for the team,” Allie said. “I’m on her and she’s the same with me. We push each other.” And they are bringing their family together.

“When we play, it’s basically a family reunion,” Selena said. “Our whole family is able to get together and watch.” Now, all that’s left for the sisters ... sorry, cousins .,. is to go after that elusive ticket to states. “We’re hungry,” Allie said. “We want it. It’s been a long road. Our freshman year, was kind of half and half. Sophomore year, we lost to Sem in the (district) semifinals (7-1). Last year (a district semifinal loss to Crestwood on penalty strokes) was the most heartbreaking loss I ever felt.”

Abington Heights Coach: Amy Wojcik, first season 2011 record: 0-15 in WVC, eighth in Division 2 Past three years: 3-42 in WVC All-stars lost: Amber Page, state All-Academic; Rachael Rugletic, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Kierstyn Selig, Sr/M; Mallory McCoy, Jr/F-M; Paige Notarianni, Jr/F-M; Serena DeSeta, Jr/M; Sarah Beamish, Jr/D; Claire Notarianni, Jr/D; Chloe Cummings, Jr/M; Tara Hambrose, Jr/D; Sierra Caswell, Sr/F-M; Gina Fiore, Sr/F-M; Emily Davis, Sr/F-M. Key newcomers: Lilliana McHale, So/M; Shirley Tung, Jr/D; Morgan Palmiter, Jr/D; Alyssa McMinn, So/D; Abby Craig, Jr/D; Susan Scappatura, Fr/F-M. Coach's outlook: The team is very coachable and open to learning and working hard. There is a nice camaraderie among the teammates and our goal of improvement in every aspect is starting to show some results. The seniors are providing excellent leadership and they are great role models for the whole team. Their maturity and contributions are the core of our team. Berwick Coach: Brandi Bertollo, first season 2011 record: 1-12 in WVC, seventh in Division 3 Past three years: 8-31-2 in WVC Key returning players: Sydney Lynn, Sr/F; Kayleigh May, Sr/F. Outlook: While it is Bertollo’s first season as head coach, she has served as a coach with the program for a few years now. There should not be a big transition in learning a playing style for the players, and the coach knows what talent she has on hand. Coughlin Coach: Colleen Wood, 21st season 2011 record: 10-4-1 in WVC, fourth in Division 1 Past three years: 28-15-2 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2009 All-stars lost: Cara Answini, state All-Academic; Rosa Bartoletti, state All-Academic; Dannah Hayward, state All-Academic; Alyssa Monaghan, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Katie Colleran, Jr/D; Kelsey Gabriele, So/M; Madysen Jones, Sr/F; Paige Tedik, Sr/G; Haley Waslasky, Sr/D; Caitlin Wood, second team All-State, Sr/F. Key newcomers: Molly Andress, So; Alex Bukeavich, So; Kyra Castano, So; Kaitlyn Lukashewski, So; Dominique Oko, So; Keighlyn Oliver, So; Kalie Reed, Fr; Brigid Wood, Fr; Kyra Wozniak, Fr; Sarah Zbierski, So. Coach's outlook: We lost a lot from last year. We have just four starters back and all are seniors, so we definitely have a lot of spots to fill. It’s a good year for a lot of the younger players because they will get their chances. For once, we have a small group -- 29 players -- so everyone will get some playing time, either in varsity or JV. Crestwood Coach: Elvetta Gemski, 37th season 2011 record: 15-0 in WVC, first in Division 1 Past three years: 43-2 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2010 All-stars lost: Anna Dessoye, first team All-American; Jessica Newak, second team All-American; Danielle DeSpirito, second team All-State; Lindsay Hischak, state All-Academic; Kelsey Jones, state All-Academic; Alexa Moran, state All-Academic; Gabrielle Prezkop, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Chandler Ackers, first team All-State, Sr/M-D; Casey Cole, So/F-M; Maury Cronauer, Jr/F; Megan McCole, Jr/D; Rachael Ritz, Sr/D-G; Marissa Surdy, Jr/F. Key newcomers: Jess Jennings, Sr/F; Breanna Paulson, Sr/F; Cecelia Schmid, Sr/F; Angela Teberio, Sr/F-M; Morgan Kile, Jr/F; Kailee Krupski, Jr/F; Rachel Maczuga, Jr/D; Kelli Mickowski, Jr/M-D; Daniella Callaghan, So/F; Dallas Kendra, So/G; Sarah Wodarczyk, So/F; Hannah Ackers, Fr/M-D; Elizabeth Dessoye, Fr/F-M; Cara Jarmiolowski, Fr/D; Hunter Pitman, Fr/F-M; Madeline Ritsick, Fr/M-D; Ashleigh Thomas, Fr/F. Coach's outlook: We are a hard working group who are concentrating on their basic skills and looking forward to the season. Dallas Coach: Kylie Rosengrant, fifth season 2011 record: 10-5 in WVC, fifth in Division 1 Past three years: 23-20-2 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2007 All-stars lost: Ashley Dunbar, second team AllState; Kirby Szalkowski, second team All-State; Dana Joley, state All-Academic; Jessica Missal, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Evonna Ackourey, Sr/F-M; Jenny Cave, Jr/F; Katy Comitz, Jr/F; Vanessa Parsons, Jr/F; Michelle Thompson, All-State honorable mention, Jr/M. Key newcomers: Cortlyn Van Deutsch, Jr/D; Emma Nisnick, Jr/D; Abby Downs, So/D; Lily Amadio, Jr/G. Coach's outlook: We’re very young. We are looking for leadership from our lone senior, and from our juniors. The upperclassmen need to step up and be strong, as most of them will be our leaders for the next two years. If they are competitive, we will have a good season. And we finally have a home field on campus. That is a big step for us. We need to use our home field to our advantage. Delaware Valley Coach: Lindsay Sabo, sixth season 2011 record: 7-8 in WVC, seventh in Division 1 Past three years: 20-25 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2000 All-stars lost: Faith Torkildsen, All-State honorable mention; Kyrsten Brockmann, state All-Academic; Maura Schaffer, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Rihannon Hausenauer, Sr/M; Katie Murphy, Sr/F; Grace Farrell, Jr/F. Key newcomers: Jillian Degraw, Jr/D; Marielle Cavallaro, So/M; Alyssa Depadua, Jr/F; Payton Padgett, So/F. Coach's outlook: We’re going to be a very young team, but we’re looking to develop as the season goes on. We have a couple of returning players, but most of the team are sophomores. The new players have shown they can fill roles for us. There were so many one-goal games (in 3A). Any given game, we’ve seen anyone can come out on top. Elk Lake Coach: Heidi Woodruff, sixth season 2011 record: 11-3 in WVC, second in Division 3 Past three years: 21-21 in WVC Key returning players: Steven Paskaitis, Sr/F; C.J. Beven, Jr/F; Sabrina Clarke, So/F. Coach's outlook: We lost 11 seniors and all but two were starters. We’re a very young team and we have a lot of players who will need to step up this season. I think we’ll hold our own this season and I think the other teams will be surprised with us. The future is bright, too, as we have 24 players in the junior high program, which is awesome. GAR Coach: Sue Woznock, fifth season 2011 record: 8-6 in WVC, fourth in Division 3 Past three years: 17-24-1 in WVC All-stars lost: Samantha Kirschner, state All-Academic; Tara Kolativa, state All-Academic; China Morningstar, state All-Academic; Laurel Roughsedge, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Mary Branham, Sr/D; Samantha Bryan, Sr/M; Candice Hartman, Sr/F; Brea Seabrook, So/F. Key newcomers: Kristen Drozda, So/F; Avery Harris, Fr/F; LaMonica Mateo, So/M; Lindsey Quinn, Fr/F; Brittany Vital, Fr/G. Coach's outlook: Our greatest asset this year is we have a roster of 24. Having graduated eight seniors, we are a new group coming together and we have a lot of skilled players who are working hard to be successful. We will look to Candice Hartman and Samantha Bryan, our senior captains, for leadership both at practice and on the field, Brea Seabrook to once again be one of the top scorers both for us and our division. Kristen Drozda and Ally Muvihill will join Seabrook on the line. Mary Branham, Marissa Yurchak and Samantha Conahan will be key on defense. We have a hardworking, talented freshman goalie in Brittany Vital, who will be an integral part of this team over the next four years. Five freshmen bring skill and eagerness to play, and they will make a difference immediately. With 12 sophomores as well, this is a building year but we expect to be very competitive from the start and improve each week. Hanover Area Coach: Jocelyn Holodick-Reed, 10th season 2011 record: 6-6 in WVC, fifth in Division 3 Past three years: 23-15-2 in WVC Key returning players: Kyra Maldonado, Sr/M; Tiffany McCary, Sr/G; Emily Mikluscak, Sr/D; Brittany McNair, Jr/D; Alyssa Cimakoski, Sr/M. Key newcomers: Mackenzie Gasper, Jr; Michaela Halesey, Fr; Samantha Maxwell, Sr; Brexy Pena, Jr; Jackie Taylor, Sr; Jessie Taylor, Sr. Coach's outlook: We are looking to the returners we do have to show some leadership. This is definitely a building year for us -- many of our players are setting foot on a varsity field for the first time. This is a good group, though, and a lot of these girls will be here for a couple of years. The key will be how the season progresses with the camaraderie among the squad. Hazleton Area Coach: Mary Kelly, 12th season 2011 record: 7-8 in WVC, second in Division 2 Past three years: 10-33-2 in WVC All-stars lost: Kayla Garzio, first team All-State; Leeca Baran, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Alison Machey, Sr/F; Alyssa Machey, Sr/D; Hannah Levine, Sr/D; Brianna Dalesandro, Sr/M; Kaitlyn McHugh, Jr/G; Hannah Plaza, Jr/M; Lexi Henchenski, Jr/F-M; Selena Garzio, All-State honorable mention, So/F-M; Madison Reed, So/M; Lauren Blakeslee, So/M; Khrista Baran, So/M; Gabby Ator So/M; Holly Slowik, So/G. Key newcomers: Kara Sanford; Celia Sokolofski. Coach's outlook: We’re excited about the upcoming season. Last year was the first time in seven years that we made it to the district’s 3A semifinals. Most of our players have returned and are eager to work hard to achieve that level of success again. We’re working diligently to develop each player to her full potential. Our focus has been on developing our team passing and defensive skills. We will take one game at a time, hoping to gain experience and improve our performance with each competition. Holy Redeemer Coach: Juliann DeFalco, fourth season 2011 record: 12-3 in WVC, first in Division 2 Past three years: 31-13-1 in WVC All-stars lost: Ashley Bernardi, first team All-State; Lauren Bernardi, first team All-State; Stephanie Amendola, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Sara Altemose, Sr/D; Greta Ell, All-State honorable mention, So/F-M; Mallory Kusakavitch, Jr/D; Marnie Kusakavitch, second team All-State, Sr/F; Melanie Kusakavitch, Jr/F; Allie Malacari, second team All-State, Sr/D; Selena Malacari, Sr/G; Stephanie McCole, Sr/M-F. Key newcomers: Alexis Lewis, So/M; Morgan Mancini, Sr/D; Chelsea Skrepenak, So/F. Coach's outlook: We are missing some core parts of our team from last year, the twins (the Bernardis) and our goalie (Elizabeth Nicholas), but I am really happy with the makeup of this team. The biggest positive is the amount of offseason work these players put in. I have a lot of players who want to play in college. They really showed up in impressive physical shape. I can’t say enough about them. Honesdale Coach: Rebecca Maciejewski, sixth season 2011 record: 3-12 in WVC, fifth in Division 2 Past three years: 12-33 in WVC Key returning players: Nicole Cush, Sr/G; Mickey Johannes, Sr/F-M; Mary Martin, Sr/F; Katelyn Pfeil, Sr/S.

Key newcomer: Janie Murphy, Fr/D. Coach's outlook: We were very young and inexperienced last season, but we did our homework. Our club team qualified for indoor nationals, and all of our starters had key offseason work. We have nine seniors on the team and 10 starters back. This group resembles the 2009 squad, which lost in strokes to Wyoming Valley West in districts. Three seniors this season were part of that team. Lackawanna Trail Coach: Sandy Spott, 23rd season 2011 record: 7-8 in WVC, seventh in Division 1 Past three years: 24-18-3 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2008 All-stars lost: Alexa Rzucidlo, All-State honorable mention. Key returning players: Jess Bowman, Sr; Sarah Botscheller, Jr; Kasey Buck, So; Cameron Crock, Sr; Shelby Croasdale, Jr; Courtney Ditchey, Sr; Aliza Furneaux, Sr; Kerrigan Buck, So; Nicole Rosa, Jr; Gabby Truesdale, So. Key newcomers: Jordan Laytos, Fr; Daria Lewandowski, So; Chelsy Stuble, Jr. Coach's outlook: We only graduated four starters, but with only 20 players on the team, we are a little light. But this is a good group that will work to be successful. The ninth grade here has just 66 students. There is good news for the future, though, is that we’ve got 12 players coming up from eighth grade next year, and they’re good. Lake-Lehman Coach: Jean Lipski, 32nd season 2011 record: 8-6-1 in WVC, sixth in Division 1 Past three years: 28-15-2 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 1999 All-stars lost: Victoria Frederick, state All-Academic; Michelle Lipski, state All-Academic; Marissa Moosic, state All-Academic; Nikki Sutliff, state AllAcademic; Alexis Van Fleet, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Alyssa Adams, So/D; Carly Gromel, Sr/M; Kassie Keiper, Sr/D; Amanda Mathers, Sr/F; Brooke O’Brien, Jr/D; Karli O’Brien, Sr/D; Tracy Snyder, Sr/F; Korrie Wandel, So/F. Key newcomers: Kate Supey, Fr/F. Coach's outlook: The senior leadership is wonderful this year -- it’s a nice blend of real encouragement and hard work. They have been working on their conditioning. It will all depend on how they gel. Certainly, the last couple of years have been lean, but the tide is turning. We did not lose anyone to girls soccer. These hockey players are committed to the traditions of Lake-Lehman. Meyers Coach: Amy Peters, third season (missed last year) 2011 record: 2-13 in WVC, seventh in Division 2 Past three years: 19-23-2 in WVC All-stars lost: Leanne McManus, state All-Academic; Mia Scocozzo, state All-Academic; Alivia Weidler, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Rianna Daughtry-Smith, Sr/G; Brianna DiMaggio, Sr/F-M; Eilish Hoban, Sr/D; Amilyn Konopki, Sr/D; Kelly Mahalek, Sr/F; Cathy Quinones, Sr/F. Key newcomers: Allison Berman, So/M; Betsy Macko, Fr/M; Sydney Rentsch, So/D. Coach's outlook: We lost a lot of starters and last year we only had three freshmen come up. So far, we’ve basically been putting two and two together. We’re looking forward to competing in Division 3 again. The last time we were in Division 3 was 2009, and we won it. We’ve been working well together as a team and are looking forward to the season. Montrose Coach: Brianna Strope, third season 2011 record: 0-11 in WVC, eighth in Division 3 Past three years: 1-36-2 in WVC Key returning players: Kelsey Brink, Sr/D, Laura Brink, Jr/M, Kayleah Trecoske, Jr/D, Makayla Dearborn, Sr/M, Maria Phillips, Sr/F; Sam Turner, Sr/F. Key newcomers: Audra Everett, Fr/G; Olivia Everett, Jr/M; Alex Zapolski, So/G. Coach's outlook: We lost eight seniors, including our goaltender, but we’re looking stronger than anticipated. We have a positive attitude and we’ll show a lot of improvement over the course of the year. We have good numbers in the program, but we’re young. We only have four seniors on the squad. Nanticoke Coach: Lori Dennis 2011 record: 3-12 in WVC, fifth in Division 2 Past three years: 13-30-2 in WVC Key returning players: Sarah Carne, M; Kayla Benjamin, F-M; Kayla Gronkowski, D; Maddy O’Donahue, D. Key newcomers: Rebecca Morris, M-D; Savannah Oliver, F; Bridget Kinlaw, G; Carly Grabowski, F. Coach's outlook: We lost 13 seniors, including nine starters, so we had to replace big numbers on the field. Most everyone returning to the team does have varsity experience, just not as starters. Our roster is 25 deep, so we have numbers. These players are new, but they are pretty good. There are times where it can be hard when you put so many new players on the field at once. Northwest Coach: Pete Malischak, second season (15th overall) 2011 record: 12-2 in WVC, first in Division 3 Past three years: 36-4-2 in WVC Key returning players: Glenn Carr, Sr/M; Jenna Morris, Sr/D; Morgan Price, Sr/F; Kirsten Walsh, Sr/F; Alivia Womelsdorf, Sr/G. Key newcomers: Liz Gurzynski, Fr/D; Aleesha Hildebrand, Sr/M; Maggie Murphy, So/D; Michaela Weber, Jr/F. Coach's outlook: We should have a good team again, though we lost our leading scorer (Taylor Perlis) and another top scorer (Colleen McCoy). But they were our only two seniors last season. The returning players went to several camps during the offseason. Our strength is going to be our experience, while our depth is our weakness. We are leaning on these (11) seniors. Seven of our first eight games are on the road, so this group will be challenged early. Pittston Area Coach: Caitlin Hadzimichalis, third season 2011 record: 10-4 in WVC, third in Division 3 Past three years: 19-23-1 in WVC Key returning players: Alexa Danko, Jr/M; Lea Garibaldi, Jr/G; Emily Herron, Jr/F; Dana Maurizi, Jr/F; Katrina Mikitish, So/M; Liz Mikitish, Sr/M. Key newcomers: Paige Danko, Fr/F; Marissa Morreale, Fr/D; Alana Platukus, Fr/F; Julia Stella, Fr/M. Coach's outlook: We lost a lot of seniors who played a lot of minutes, but we do have a pretty big junior class moving up. The newcomers are eager to step up and are keeping up with the speed of the game. The underclassmen are looking to put their stamp on the team. Since I’ve been here, we’ve figured out how to win and how to play in tough games. They are ready to apply that experience to this season. Tunkhannock Coach: Ashlie Lewis, first season 2011 record: 5-9 in WVC, sixth in Division 3 Past three years: 21-19-2 in WVC Key returning players: Liz Franko, Sr/F; Cheyenne Hunsinger, Sr/F; Diandra Sherman, Sr/M; Marley Mason, Jr/F; Amanda Nole, Jr/M; Haylee Underwood, Jr/F. Coach's outlook: Since I’m just starting out, everyone is equal and my best 11 will play. We have a lot of talented players who will see time. I was with the junior high team for three years, then was an assistant varsity coach, so a lot of the team already knows my style. It looks like we’ll have a deep rotation, so I’m going to try to take advantage of that. Wallenpaupack Coach: Ashley Liptak, fourth season 2011 record: 4-11 in WVC, fourth in Division 2 Past three years: 12-33 in WVC Key returning players: Heidi Becker, Jr/F; Corine Peifer, So/D; Danielle Palazzi, Sr/M. Key newcomers: Emily Bolton, So/F; Svitlana Martynuke, So/F. Coach's outlook: We graduated seven last year, so this is a big rebuilding year for us. We have just one senior this year, so this group will get the chance to grow together. We’re young, but we’re getting to know each other and learning our systems. They are soaking in everything we are giving them. And we have two sophomore goalies, so there’s a strong competition in net that should be exciting. Wyoming Area Coach: Lunda Comiskey, first season 2011 record: 7-8 in WVC, second in Division 2 Past three years: 23-21-1 in WVC All-stars lost: Jenna Skrinak, All-State honorable mention; Morgan Kane, state All-Academic; Samantha Shiner, state All-Academic. Key returning players: Serra Degnan, Sr; Sally Deluca, Jr; Abby Thornton, Jr; Gabby Alberigi, Sr; Lexi Coolbaugh, Sr; Lindsay Carey, Jr; Faith Mushinski, Sr; Abby Schwerdtman, So; Kalene Bellas, Sr; Kate Higgins, Sr; Carrie Pozaic, So; Kaylee Rogers, So; Emily Kneeream, Sr; Julianna Scappaticci, So. Key newcomers: Lauren Perry; Christina Granteed; Jillian Spak; Krystina Stanczyk; Samantha Holcomb; Paige Norton; Abby Hosey; Renee Gluchowski; Ally Bresnahan; Laura Heinzlemeir; Grace Gober; Gianna Gennetts; Bree Bednarski. Coach's outlook: We’re taking each day one by one. Striving to get better individually and as a team is our ultimate goal. All the other pieces will fall into place if we keep this in mind. Wyoming Seminary Coach: Karen Klassner, 41st season 2011 record: 11-2-2 in WVC, third in Division 1, PIAA Class 2A champion Past three years: 41-2-2 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2011 All-stars lost: AshLeigh Sebia, first team All-American; Ann Romanowski, first team All-State; Kristian Stefanides, first team All-State; Bethany Brody, state All-Academic Key returning players: Hannah Dressler, Sr/G; Tali Dressler, So/M-D; Emily Granger, Sr/M-D; Julia Grosek, Jr/M-D; Devin Holmes, Jr/M-D; Mallory Lefkowitz, Jr/F; Kristen Mericle, second team AllState, Sr/M; Marra Wagner, Sr/M-D. Key newcomers: Madison Dowd, Jr/M-D; Morgan Malone, Jr/F-M. Coach's outlook: We’re pretty young this season, with a lot of new players in the program. We’re just anxious to get going after having a pretty good preseason. We have Hannah Dressler in goal and that’s huge for us. She got experience last year during the playoffs and helped us to the state title. Mallory Lefkowitz, Devin Holmes, Kristen Mericle and Emily Granger are among the returning players who will have big roles for us. Wyoming Valley West Coach: Linda Fithian, 17th season 2011 record: 12-3 in WVC, second in Division 1 Past three years: 33-11-1 in WVC Last District 2 championship: 2011 All-stars lost: Kelcie Hromisin, third team AllAmerican; Kaitlyn Smicherko, All-State honorable mention. Key returning players: Maura Anistranski, second team All-State, Sr/F-M; Sauni Davenport, second team All-State, Sr/M-D; Casey Dolan, second team All-State, Sr/F-M; Lilly Shemo, Sr/M-D; Nicole Sott, Sr/F-M; Riki Stefanides, Sr/F-M; Alex Gonda, Jr/ F-M; Danielle Grega, F; Haley Gayoski, So/D. Key newcomers: Jocelyn Polney, Fr/G, Julia Usefara, So/M-D. Coach's outlook: We have six returning senior starters -- obviously they are our leaders and have a lot of experience. We’re also returning two juniors and a sophomore who started last year, so the bulk of our lineup is back. This is a great group that we have and they are a hard-working bunch. Note: Top honor listed for players.

This week will start off much cooler than it has been, then slowly warm back up with plenty of sunshine. Today will be mostly sunny but cool. The high will reach only 70, and we will have a nice light breeze throughout the day. Sunshine will stay with us as high pressure moves into the region. We should stay warm and dry for the entire week. The next chance for rain may be late Friday night and during the day on Saturday. Sunday will be partly cloudy with rain later in the day. - Michelle Rotella

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K Run to fund the fight against breast cancer was held Saturday in Scranton. About $275,000 was raised for education, screening, treatment grants and research, said Dolly Woody, executive director of the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Northeastern Pennsylvania. Stephanie Orzalek and Larry Hopkins of Scranton were there.

The rededication ceremony of the Jesse Thomas American Legion Post 495 was held Saturday at the post home in Shickshinny. Jesse Thomas was a veteran from Shickshinny who was killed in action during World War I on Sept. 6, 1918. He was one of the last casualties of WWI. He is buried in Oise-Aisne American Cemetery in France. Edwin Micca and John Matusek attended the event.

A dinner dance was held at Holy Saviour Church Saturday in Wilkes-Barre to mark the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt’s 1912 launch of the ‘Bull Moose’ party. Roosevelt, who was a frequent visitor to WilkesBarre, was vice president to President William McKinley, who was assassinated in September 1901. Roosevelt then won a full term of his own in 1904. He lost his bid as an independent in 1912. Carl Hanks and Rina Stella attended Saturday.
