JAMES, HEAT BURN UP CELTICS

Reasons unclear, but studies point to combat exposure, post-traumatic stress, medication misuse, financial problems.

LeBron James had 45

points and 15 rebounds, overwhelming the Boston Celtics and leading the Miami Heat to a 98-79 victory Thursday night that forced a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals. Pushing away elimination right along with every defender who tried to stop him, James shot 19 of 26 from the field and finished four points shy of his playoff career-high while playing 45 minutes, not sitting down until the victory was long secured. 1B

Help wanted for job

Teens find national stats for work opportunities don’t apply locally By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com and NODYIA FEDRICK Times Leader Intern

According to the U.S. Labor Department analysis, teenagers’ summer employment is at its strongest since 2006, but16-year-old Rachel Thomas and her peers just aren’t seeing it. “I’ve been trying to get a job for a while and I haven’t gotten one yet,” Thomas, of Hanover Township, said. “I’ve applied everywhere possible since I’m 15. I’ve applied to many places in the mall, Kmart, Target, CVS. I’ll get an email back and they’ll say, ‘Thanks for your application. We’ll be in touch.’ And then I never get anything back,” Thomas said. Thomas said most of her friends who have jobs say it’s because they knew the manager who hired them. “I don’t know any managers,” she said.

TIPS FOR TEENS

On the surface, Labor Department statistics gathered by outplacement consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas suggest a growing summer job market for teens. The number of 16- to 19-year-olds hired in May totaled 157,000 nationally – more than double the 71,000 jobs won by teens a year earlier. May is the first month of the teen summer hiring season, which ends in July. The solid hiring numbers for teens last month represented a dramatic increase from the paltry 6,000 teens hired in May 2010. Statistical improvements Despite the improvements, Challenger, Gray & Christmas says a growing number of teens are abandoning the summer job market because they just can’t find jobs. For example, the number of teens hired See JOB, Page 14A

• Start looking now. Shawn Boyer, chief executive officer of SnagAJob.com, said employers started thinking about their upcoming summer staffing issues in April. • Get the word out. Tell everyone you know that you’re looking for a job in case they hear of an opening. Consider teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, your family doctor and veterinarian, your parents’ friends, your friends’ parents, etc. • Plan for a repeat performance. If you had a job last summer and you didn’t absolutely hate it, consider reapplying this year. • Be professional. Make sure that everything you include in your job application is spelled correctly and is free of grammatical errors. Don’t use all lowercase or all uppercase letters, Boyer said. Be sure the email address you put down isn’t silly or distracting. The same holds true for the voice-mail prompt on your cell phone or home phone. • Do mock interviews. To work out the jitters ahead of time, do a few practice interviews with someone other than a friend or parent, Boyer recommended. Source: msnbc.msn.com

Mohegan Sun planning hotel with a difference Impact of gambling, entertainment and shopping mecca weighed. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

PLAINS TWP. -- Mohegan Sun’s planned hotel and convention center will be unlike any in Luzerne County. And that’s a good thing for an area with a plethora of existing accommodations. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is moving forward with plans to build a

238-room hotel and 40,000-square-foot convention center adjoining the existing casino and racetrack off Route 315 in Plains Township. The hotel will be unique in the region because its onsite casino and associated harness racing, shows, shops and restaurants make it a tourism draw in and of itself. It’s an amenity some area hotel and conference center owners said candidly that they can’t compete with, but they don’t necessarily need to.

Gus Genetti, owner of Genetti’s Hotel & Conference Center in Wilkes-Barre, said Mohegan Sun has had an impact on his restaurant and banquet business “from the day they opened,” and the hotel could also chip away at his lodging business. “They’re able to give very favorable terms because, after all, everyone is going to drop an average of $50 at the casino when they’re done with their event,”

DALLAS TWP. – A Dallas Middle School staff member was suspended without pay earlier this week on a report of inappropriate behavior, law enforcement and school district officials said Thursday. Dallas School District Superintendent Frank Galicki said Dallas Township police, state police and the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the report. District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis confirmed her office’s involvement. “On Tuesday we began the investigation,” she said. No charges have been filed against the unnamed staff member who worked at the middle school on Conyngham Avenue. “It was reported to the administration at the middle school on Monday,” said Galicki. The next day the district began an internal investigation that determined there was inappropriate behavior and the township police were contacted, he said. The township police contacted the District Attorney’s Office, which contacted the state police, and based on the findings of their investigation, the staff member was placed on suspension without pay, Galicki added. He and Salavantis said they could not comment further because of the ongoing investigation. Jerry Lynott, a Times Leader staff writer, can be contacted at 570 829-7237.

Accounting firm owner gets jail term Times Leader Staff

SCRANTON – The co-owner of a Kingston accounting firm was sentenced Thursday to 18 months in prison for his guilty plea to charges he evaded paying income taxes. Jerome Pinkowski, 56, of Swoyersville, was also ordered to pay $163,107 in restitution to the federal government by U.S. District Judge Richard Conaboy. Pinkowski and his partner, Christopher Wartella, 40, of Forty Fort, were charged in December with making false tax filings through their business, Broody Associates on Warren Avenue. Pinkowski pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States and making fraudulent and false statements. Prosecutors said he and Wartella conspired to defraud the Internal Revenue Service by under-reporting their employees’ wages to avoid the payment of income and employment taxes and by instructing clients to re-classify wages as distributions of income to evade the payment of employment taxes. In addition, Pinkowski willfully aided and abetted the preparation of a client’s tax return that was false and fraudulent in that it under-reported wages by approximately $21,340, which resulted in a failure to pay taxes in the amount of $5,214. Wartella pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion for underreporting his personal income from 2004 to 2008, resulting in a loss of $441,352 in taxes owed to the government. He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 17.

WILKES-BARRE – Councilman Tony George said he has waited long enough to see receipts from LAG Towing and he suggested council think about starting the process to terminate the towing company’s contract. “The city has the right to review his records and his shop,” George said. “If he thinks he can thumb his nose at council, then we should begin proceedings to terminate his contract.” A phone message left on LAG owner Leo Glodzik’s cellphone was not returned. George said he has been waiting more than a month to review LAG’s records after residents complained they were being overcharged for towing fees. As part of his contract with the city, Glodzik is required to submit reports and receipts to the city for review. The city administration has not demanded that Glodzik provide

Barrett said LAG should provide the records to the city and George should be allowed to review them. “We should have the records,” Barrett said. “LAG should be required to present them and comply with the contract.” George’s statements were applauded by residents in attendance at Thursday night’s council meeting. Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former towing contractor, and Mark Robbins, a Forty Fort resident who has alleged a conspiracy among LAG, the city police and Mayor Tom Leighton for more than a year, were both elated to hear George demand the records. “This council needs to investigate LAG and the fees he is charging,” Kadluboski said. Robbins gave council a list of some of LAG’s bills and he offered to provide copies of LAG bills that he secured through a right-toknow request. George said he would appreciate seeing those records. The list Robbins had showed

countable,” Robbins said. Kadluboski and Robbins also asked council to look into the mayor’s plan to lease the city’s parking assets. Today is the deadline for the return of the Requests for Qualifications from prospective bidders. Drew McLaughlin, the city’s administrative coordinator, said he’s not sure what the procedure will be regarding the release of the RFQ respondents. Leighton approved the RFQ to include a minimum up front payment of $20 million to bid on leasing the parking assets for 30 years or 50 years. Desman Associates, a Chicago based parking consulting firm, was retained by the city’s Parking Authority to review the RFQ and recommend what would be a reasonable upfront payment. Jerry Salzman of Desman Associates would not disclose what figure he recommended, but it was clear the firm did not endorse the city’s $20 million figure. In a letter to The Times Leader,

public mind ... regarding the $20 million value set forth in the RFQ, it is important to clarify that Desman has not concurred with the value,” Salzman wrote. “It is a clear misinterpretation of our opinion and absolutely incorrect.” Leighton has stated that $8 million would come off the top of the upfront payment to satisfy remaining debt on the Intermodal Transportation Center ($7 million) and $1million of debt on other parking facilities. Robbins said the city will never get anything close to $20 million up front. He provided a cost analysis that showed his calculations to be a maximum upfront payment of under $7 million. Council approved the appointment of James Davis to the Parking Authority board, filling the seat of Joseph O’Brien, who resigned. O’Brien has not attended recent authority meetings.

SUGAR NOTCH – Main Street resident Anthony Henicheck addressed borough council Wednesday night about the property at 867-869 Main St. Henicheck described the property as a “safety concern” due to the nails and debris left behind after the owners removed the siding from the dwelling. Henicheck also stated there are several stray cats at the location, and he voiced

It was announced that temporary Code Enforcer David Kobiak would visit the property owners with the intention to give notice to clean up the property or face legal proceedings to condemn the structure. Kobiak has agreed to act as Sugar Notch’s temporary code enforcer until a permanent officer becomes available. This follows the resignation of Carl Al-

WEST PITTSTON

FEMA announces buyouts

ive West Pittston properties heavily damaged by September F flooding will be purchased and de-

molished in the latest round of buyouts announced Thursday by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA. Additional buyouts of flood-damaged properties are expected, FEMA said. The $690,220 earmark for West Pittston buyouts was part of a $7.1 million package affecting 94 structures in eight counties, a release said. Municipalities must agree to maintain and own the properties and keep them as open space. Addresses of the approved West Pittston properties weren’t immediately available. An estimated $66 million is expected to be available for the property acquisition program in Pennsylvania as a result of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. The federal government covers 75 percent of the cost, with an additional 22 percent from the state and the balance from other non-federal sources.

Bank delays Split Rock sheriff’s sale Judge permits receiver to seek buyer for the financially troubled resort in Carbon County. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

LAKE HARMONY -- A bank agreed to postpone the sheriff’s sale scheduled for today of the Split Rock Resort after a federal judge agreed to permit the receiver appointed to run the complex to begin marketing the property for sale. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo on Wednesday granted the receiver, ROPA Associates LLC, permission to hire a company that specializes in resort sales to seek a buyer for the financially troubled resort located in Carbon County. Certain parcels in the resort were scheduled to be sold at the Carbon

County sheriff’s sale to satisfy more than $21 million in mortgages that are owed to TD Bank of Portland, Maine. The bank agreed to postpone the sale until August, pending Caputo’s approval, to allow ROPA the opportunity to seek a buyer for the complex. The Split Rock complex, owned by Vacation Charters LTD., is made up of various properties, including The Galleria Hotel, Split Rock Lodge, an indoor water park, a lake and the Westwood and Willowbrook timeshare condominium developments. It also includes the nearby the Mountain Laurel Resort and Spa. In court papers, ROPA argued it would attract more interest and get a higher sales price if it could package all properties together for sale to a single buyer, as opposed to having various properties sold in a piecemeal fashion to separate buyers at a tax sale. ROPA also argued a combined sale

would also better protect the interests of the resort’s creditors and roughly 23,000 timeshare owners, as well as help ensure the resort, which is one of the largest employers in Carbon County, would continue to operate. ROPA was required to obtain Caputo’s permission before it could move forward with the sales effort. Caputo’s order grants ROPA permission to market the properties, but it does not authorize a sale should a buyer be found. The company would be required to seek a separate court order to go through with any sale. Textron Financial, one of the resort’s largest creditors, convinced Caputo to appoint ROPA in December to manage and operate the resort complex based on evidence it was in dire financial straits. According to court documents filed then, the resort was unable to pay taxes on the properties and had advised Tex-

Charged with sex assault

A Jenkins Township man was charged by Exeter police with sexually assaulting a teenage girl who became pregnant and gave birth. Clyde Earl Tonkin, 29, was arraigned Wednesday night with three Tonkin counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, and one count each of aggravated indecent assault, statutory sexual assault, indecent assault and sexual assault. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $30,000 bail. Police alleged Tonkin assaulted the girl when she was 13-years-old. Tonkin convinced the girl to run away with him to California in February before the girl gave birth. They were found in an Econo Lodge Motel in Streetsboro, Ohio, on Feb. 6. The girl had been reported missing by her family. HARRISBURG

Lower Aqua hike OK’d

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission on Thursday voted 5-0 to approve a lower rate increase than requested by Aqua Pennsylvania. The settlement is for an annual increase in rates of $16.7 million, or 4.1 percent. The settlement was reached among Aqua, the Commission’s Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement, the state’s Office of Consumer Advocate and the Aqua Large Users Group. The company had originally requested an increase in rates of annual revenues of $38.6 million, or 9.4 percent. As part of the approval, the average residential customer residing in the company’s Main Division using 4,745 gallons per month would see a monthly increase of $1.99 from $52.86 to $54.85. Under the company’s proposal, the average residential customer would have experienced a monthly increase of $5.08.

tron it would not be able to meet payroll. Since then, ROPA says it has stabilized operations of the resort, but it must now be sold to satisfy numerous judgments and pending claims from creditors. It was not immediately clear what impact a sale would have on creditors and timeshare owners. ROPA is seeking permission to market the property “free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances,” which could mean certain creditors would not be paid. Caputo’s order grants ROPA permission to seek to sell the property, but it does not specifically state whether that sale will be free of encumbrances. Attorneys for ROPA, Textron Financial, TD Bank and Vacation Charters either did not return phone messages Thursday, or said they could not comment on the case.

State Rep. Tarah Toohil is concerned that public safety could be jeopardized if more funding isn’t allocated to train and hire more state police troopers. Toohil, R-Butler Township, on Thursday co-chaired a joint public hearing, conducted by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Corrections and the Senate Law and Justice Committee, to gather testimony on the state police complement in the Northern Tier where natural gas drilling is ongoing. The hearing was at the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport. “Our goal was to hear firsthand how some recent state police decisions are impacting law enforcement efforts in this area of Pennsylvania,” Toohil said, noting that many rural communities there don’t have police departments and rely on state police for protection. Joseph Kovel, president of the Penn-

sylvania State Troopers Association, said incidents to which state police at Towanda in Bradford County and at Mansfield in Tioga County have responded increased 26.5 percent and 54 percent, respectively, between 2009 and 2011. Since 2010, six troopers were added to the Mansfield station – a 26 percent manpower increase – and four were added to Towanda – a 12 percent increase, Kovel said, adding that the need for more troopers there is critical. “What I ask this committee today is, where do we take the troopers from to cover these areas? How many extra troopers do you have in your home areas that you can give up to cover the Marcellus Shale region?” he said. Kovel said state police vacancies are approaching 450 and that number could reach 1,200 within a year because of retirements, leaving the ranks of troopers well below the required complement of 4,677. More cadet training classes are needed, he said. Several speakers raised concerns about a decision earlier this year to close the state police Aviation Patrol Unit at Williamsport Regional Airport in Mon-

toursville and have the APU at Hazleton Municipal Airport pick up much of the coverage area. “This move to the eastern part of the state will add response time, increase fuel costs and will not cover the northcentral area as the residents, police and emergency personnel are accustomed,” retired state police pilot Dennis Hoak told the panel, adding that the state police helicopter “has saved several lives.” John Yingling, director of public safety for Lycoming County, said the APU in Montoursville helped rescue eight people during Tropical Storm Lee in 2011 and helped scout forest fires in the Marcellus Shale area as well. Toohil said she is concerned about the effects of the closure of the APU, given a 45- to 60-minute fly time from Hazleton, as well as the ramifications of a shortage of troopers. She said she is disappointed the state police sent no representative to the hearing. Maria Finn, press secretary for the state police and Governor’s Office of Homeland Security, said Commissioner Frank Noonan had a prior commitment See TROOPERS, Page 14A

Joann Curley once again denied parole Area woman, 48, was sentenced in 1997 in the poisoning death of her husband, Robert Curley, in 1991. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

HARRISBURG – A woman serving a 10- to 20-year prison term in the 1991 poisoning death of her husband has been denied parole from state prison for the sixth time. Joann Curley, 48, who is jailed at the State Correctional Institution at Cambridge Springs, Crawford County, was eligible for parole after January 2012. The state parole board said in a deci-

Curley

sion this week that they denied Curley’s parole again due to “community sensitivity and a negative recommendation by prosecuting attorneys,” state probation and parole spokesman Leo

Dunn said. Curley is eligible for parole each year and her parole will be automatically reviewed on or after December 2014, Dunn said. Curley was sentenced in July 1997 to 10 to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to third-degree murder in the death of her 32-year-old husband, Robert

Curley. Robert Curley became ill in August 1991, was hospitalized and then released after doctors were unable to come to a diagnosis. A few months later, he was taken to the Hershey Medical Center, where doctors realized he was being poisoned with thallium, a colorless, odorless and tasteless metal. Robert Curley died on Sept. 27, 1991, and his family said there was so much poison in his system the damage was irreversible. Police learned years later that Joann Curley had been poisoning her husband with rat poison, starting just six weeks after they were married.

FORTY FORT – Disciplinary problems faced by the borough’s police chief in another community have had no impact on his performance with the borough’s police department, two borough officials said. Chief Fred Lahovski was recently suspended without pay for 10 days by Nazareth borough, where he is employed as a full-time officer. The action came two months after he was demoted from detective to patrolman in the Nazareth department. Forty Fort resident Joe Homza raised the issue at a borough council meeting this week. Homza said he learned of the Nazareth situation from news articles he read on the Internet and is concerned the issues Lahovski faces in Nazareth may reflect negatively on Forty Fort. “It doesn’t make us look good. He is representing our community,” Homza said. Homza also questioned why Lahovski, who was hired in September, was permitted to maintain his position in Nazareth given the job description for Forty Fort police chief says the person cannot be employed by another police department. Council President Joe Chacke and Mayor Boyd Hoats defended Lahovski, saying his service in Forty Fort has been exemplary. “I think I can speak for a council as a whole that Chief Lahovski’s work has been stellar,” Chacke said. “Traffic enforcement has increased, arrests and more thorough investigations have occurred, police presence is at an all-time high, and leadership of the department has been outstanding.” Hoats said Lahovski also has been of great assistance in helping the borough obtain grants. “He’s gotten us grants we didn’t even know about,” he said. As for holding a second position, Hoats and Chacke said Lahovski notified officials of his employment with Nazareth. Council agreed to waive that provision as part of the negotiations to hire Lahovski. Hoats said the Nazareth position has not interfered in any way with Lahovski’s position in Forty Fort, which requires him to work 24 hours per week. There have many instances when Lahovski worked more hours, he said. “He is here around the clock if needed,” Hoats said. According to an article that appeared May 8 in the Morning Call newspaper in Allentown, Nazareth council endorsed a 10-day suspension of Lahovski. No reason was given for the suspension.

BEIRUT — Unarmed United Nations monitors came under fire Thursday as they tried to reach the scene of the latest mass killing in Syria, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. Activists accused government forces of killing nearly 80 people, including women and children who were shot, hacked to death and burned in their homes. The reports came just weeks after more than 100 people

were killed in one day in a cluster of villages known as Houla in central Homs province, many of them children and women gunned down in their homes. U.N. investigators blamed pro-government gunmen for at least some of the killings, but the Syrian regime denied responsibility and blamed rebels for the deaths. The Houla massacre brought international outrage and a coordinated expulsion of Syrian diplomats from world capitals. Ban told the U.N. General Assembly that the monitors “were shot at with small arms” as they tried to reach Mazraat al-Qubair, a farming area in the central Hama province. The group was denied access. By nightfall, the U.N. observers had not

Leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees said Thursday they are drafting legislation to further limit who can access highly classified information — and possibly impose new penalties for revealing it. Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said it likely will also require that the White House notify Congress when it decides to release classified information to the media. Republican lawmakers have accused the White House of spilling national security secrets to boost the president’s reputation in an election year.

Hearing for Zimmerman

George Zimmerman, who was forced to return to jail after his bail was revoked by a Florida judge, will get a new hearing to determine if he will be released while awaiting legal proceedings in the death of Trayvon Martin. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester will preside over the bond hearing scheduled for June 29, the court said in a statement released Thursday. Zimmerman’s lawyers have yet to file a motion, but have indicated they will seek a new bond. Zimmerman, 28, is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of Martin, 17, during a February confrontation at a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman has acknowledged shooting the unarmed black teenager, but argued it was self-defense. WASHINGTON

Afghan deaths probed

The military’s top officer says the international military coalition in Afghanistan is investigating an Afghan official’s assertion that more civilians were killed in a NATO airstrike in the Eastern province of Logar than the alliance reported. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey told a Pentagon news conference Thursday that in the immediate aftermath of the bombing, two civilians came forward to say they had been wounded, but no others were found in the rubble. Dempsey said an ongoing investigation will determine the scope and scale of unintended civilian casualties. WASHINGTON

Romney out-raises Obama

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign reached a significant milestone Thursday, surpassing President Barack Obama’s fundraising efforts for the first time with $76.8 million raised in May alone. Obama’s campaign announced that it and the Democratic National Committee had raised more than $60 million. The Romney campaign now has $107 million cash on hand, while Obama and the DNC have yet to release their total. Obama and Romney were nearly neck-and-neck in fundraising in April, with $43.6 and $40.1 million respectively, but Romney and the RNC’s month-to-month increase of $36.7 million more than doubled that of the president and the DNC.

Sandusky accusers to be identified in court Lawyers and advocates argue that will traumatize them all over; most media oppose revealing names. By MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

The young men who accuse former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of molesting them have been allowed to remain anonymous through months of intense news coverage and water-cooler conversation about the scandal. That’s about to change. When they take the witness stand in a packed Bellefonte, Centre County, courtroom as early as next week, the alleged victims will be forced to state their names for the record — traumatizing them all over again, their lawyers and victims’ ad-

vocates argue, especially given the very real possibility their identities will become common knowledge via social media and the wider Internet. Most traditional Sandusky media organizations, including The Associated Press, have longstanding policies against using the names of alleged victims of sexual assault, viewing the crime as so intensely personal and the potential effect of public disclosure so traumatic for the accuser that withholding the identity outweighs the public’s right to know. It is also The Times Leader’s policy not to publish the names of sexual assault victims, unless they consent to their use, said Executive Editor Joe Butkiewicz.

But in this anything-goes age of social media and citizen journalists, when anyone with a smartphone can tweet or blog, old media standards may no longer make much difference. Anyone lucky enough to grab one of the 85 courtroom seats reserved for the public could sit in for the day, jot down some of the accusers’ names, leave and disseminate them to the world. Sandusky, 68, faces 52 counts accusing him of sexually abusing 10 boys over a span of 15 years. Prosecutors say the retired coach befriended boys he met through The Second Mile, the charity he founded for youngsters in 1977, then attacked them, in some cases in his home or inside university athletic facilities. He has denied the allegations. Most of the accusers are now in their 20s.

CDC study: Older teens often text while driving Survey found 58 percent of high school seniors admitted to texting. By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer

ATLANTA — More than half of high school seniors admit they text or email while driving — the first federal statistics on how common the dangerous habit is in teens. An anonymous national sur-

vey conducted last year found that 58 percent of high school seniors said they had texted or emailed while driving during the previous month. About 43 percent of high school juniors acknowledged they did the same thing. “I’m not surprised. I’m not surprised at all,” said Vicki Rimasse, a New Jersey woman whose son caused a fender bender earlier this year after texting in traffic. She made him take a safe-driving class after the mishap.

“I felt like an idiot,” said her 18-year-old son, Dylan Young. “It caused me to be a lot more cautious,” said the high school senior, although he conceded that he still texts behind the wheel. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the survey results Thursday. Some earlier studies had suggested teen texting while driving was common though perhaps not quite so high.

Still, the numbers aren’t really surprising, said Amanda Lenhart, a senior researcher at the Pew Research Center in Washington. She studies how teens use technology. A typical teen sends and receives about 100 text messages a day, and it’s the most common way many kids communicate with their peers. Even during short car rides it’s not uncommon for messages to be coming in and for teens to respond, she said.

INDIANAPOLIS — Investigators have busted a child pornography ring spread across the U.S. and Europe that produced and distributed sexually explicit images of babies and toddlers online, federal prosecutors in Indianapolis said Thursday. Seven American men have been convicted and sentenced on various charges in the case, including three who were sentenced in federal court in Indianapolis on Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Two more who pleaded guilty are awaiting sentencing. One East Texas, Pa., man was sentenced to 15 years. “This operation uncovered a dangerous and depraved group of criminals who were devoted to trading sexually explicit images of children under the age of five,” Assistant U.S. Attorney General Larry Breuer said in a statement. More than 20 suspects have been captured in nine states, and authorities are investigating yet more elsewhere in the U.S., as well as Sweden, Serbia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. First Assistant U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said at an Indianapolis news conference that more than two dozen children in Indiana and elsewhere were abused in the production of the pornography. “Children who far too often weren’t old enough to comprehend the crimes committed against them,” Minkler said. “Children who were raped in this state and were too young to ask for help.” Some of the suspects had legal custody of their victims, and those children have been removed, prosecutors said. The “most prolific producer of child pornography” in the group was 26-year-old David Bostic, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brant Cook said. Bostic persuaded parents to allow him to babysit and, thus entrusted, abused the children without their knowledge. He was arrested in November 2010 after federal, state and local investigators raided his home in Bloomington, Ind. Bostic’s arrest heralded the launch of Operation Bulldog; further investigation of his computer led investigators to others in the group.

high school and I plan to enjoy it," Powell said. "Tomorrow, I’m going to concentrate on college." Graduating senior and Grenadier football starter Ariel Peguero said he is enrolled at Misericordia University for the fall semester and will be a part of the school’s newly revamped football program.

Guitarist and singer Bob Welch, whose work in the early 1970s for Fleetwood Mac set the stage for the band’s multi-platinum success later in the decade, died on Thursday at his home in Nashville, Tenn.. He was 66. According to a spokesman for the Nashville Police Department, Welch was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The spokesman said Welch’s wife, Wendy, told police he had been suffering from health issues. Welch joined Fleetwood Mac in 1971 as a 24-year-old living in Paris, just as the group was making the transition away from being a British blues rock band and into the 1970s commercial powerhouse that it became. As a singer and guitarist for the group, Welch was lesser known than the pair who replaced him - lead vocalist Stevie Nicks and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. His work on early albums such as "Future Games," "Bare Trees" and "Heroes Are Hard to Find" with band mates who included Mick Fleetwood and John and Chris-

the stage for Fleetwood Mac’s hit-making line-up when Nicks and Buckingham were hired to take on his two duties. That would become the group’s most successful lineup, releasing the 1975 album "Fleetwood Mac" and "Rumors," the band’s acclaimed 1977 hit album. "My era was the bridge era," Welch told The Cleveland Plain Dealer in 1998, after he was excluded from the Fleetwood Mac line-up inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "It was a transition. But it was an important period in the history of the band. Mick Fleetwood dedicated a whole chapter of his biography to my era of the band and credited me with ‘saving Fleetwood Mac.’ Now they want to write me out of the history of the group." Welch went solo and scored a top 20 hit in 1977 with "Ebony Eyes." The album from which it was culled, "French Kiss," featured a number of former Fleetwood Mac members, as well as a rendition of "Sentimental Lady," a song originally recorded with Fleetwood Mac but reworked by Welch. Over the next six years Welch released five more studio albums, but none was as successful as his debut.

Curtis Rozelle June 6, 2012 W. Rozelle, of TunkhanC urtis nock, went to be with the Lord

on June 6, 2012 at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa., after a brief bout with cancer. Born March 1, 1945, in Whangarei, New Zealand, he was a son of Edward Curtis Rozelle, a U.S. Marine, and Dulcie May Squires Rozelle. As a war bride, Dulcie brought infant Curtis and his older sister Sharon Rozelle Harvey home to live in northeast Pennsylvania. He grew up in Tunkhannock and graduated from Tunkhannock High School, Class of 1963. After graduation, he joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a jet engine mechanic in Okinawa during the Vietnam War. After his service, he returned to the states and went to work for P & G, where he retired after 34 years, starting in Bounty as the lines were set up, doing some welding and finishing his career in engineering, managing the drawing system for the facility. After retiring he was employed part time by Gays True Value, repairing small engines. He also was a coach of tee ball, Little League, U-14 youth soccer and squidget football, as well as assisting with scouts. Curtis came to know Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1990, and joined Mehoopany Baptist Church, where he served as an usher and for several years ran the sound booth for services. He joined the Wyoming County Gideons and served as Chaplain, Vice President and acting President. His passion was going to various churches in the area and giving Gideon Presentations, sharing what the Lord is doing through the Gideons in the local chapter as well as in the world.

Curt was predeceased by both his parents and sister.

June 6, 2012 W. Weale, 74, of WilkesR obert Barre, passed away Wednesday,

June 6, 2012, in Hospice Community Care Inpatient Unit at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre. Robert was born in Wilkes-Barre on Aubust 3, 1937, to the late Archibald Weale and Florence Voeste Weale. Bob graduated from GAR Memorial High School in 1955 and Luzerne County Community College in 1985 with a degree in fire science.

After returning to Wilkes-Barre, he was employed at the Heavenly Shoe Company in Hanover Township until 1964, when he left to join the WilkesBarre Fire Department. Bob’s service to the fire department was his life’s passion, and his fellow firefighters were like his own family. As an assistant fire chief, he retired from the fire department in 1997. Surviving are his wife of 55 years, Carol Wojcik Weale, Wilkes-Barre; son, Christopher Weale, and his wife, Carol Kleback Weale, Warminster, Pa.; grandchildren, Lindsay and Meghan Weale, Warminster, Pa.; brother, Fred Weale, and his

Some of Bob’s fondest memories were the times he spent with the loves of his life, his granddaughters, Lindsay and Meghan Weale. He also enjoyed many happy times with his friends from the Silver Sneakers program at the YMCA. Bob was an avid couponer/rebater and will be fondly missed by the employees of Rite-Aid in Plains Township. He was also an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan, which he passed along to his son. Both of whom are sad to see them not win a Super Bowl during his lifetime.

much! We have to move this inventory now!” Laylo has ordered the staff to run every deal past him. Every trade & every offer will be looked at and no reasonable offer will be refused. Laylo reiterated, “NO REASONABLE OFFER WILL BE REFUSED REGARDLESS OF

PROFIT OR LOSS.” All new Chevrolet trucks and SUV’s come with a 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Fairway anticipates having over one hundred trucks and SUV’s available and must sell 40-50 by month’s end. Fairway has asked for additional help from their

MIKE SEGILIA Chevy & Pre-Owned Sales

By M. Segilia Rich LaRussa, F & I Manager for Fairway Chevrolet in Hazle Township, recently announced a new and unique program to help credit challenged people purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle. Many customers are under the impression that they owe too much on their current vehicle loan or that past credit issues would hinder them from getting into

a new vehicle. Ninety percent of the time customers are paying interest rates higher than what’s available today. Fairway now has a system that specifically targets distressed credit customers. That is, no minimum credit score is required. A minimum gross income of $1,500 and only $1,000 down is necessary. This can be accomplished with cash or ACV transfer or both. Rich LaRussa said, “We have helped

Kenneth and Gloria Norris express their gratitude to Rich LaRusa, F&I Manager for Fairway Chevrolet, "We are thrilled with the deal we received from Fairway."

hundreds of folks with poor credit get into the car of their dreams and with our new system we are confident we can

help even more.” Most customers are in loans that are 14% APR to 15% APR or even higher in some cases. With today’s current rates we can possibly shave $20, $30, even $40 off a customer payment. “We’re especially excited about helping those customers that have had credit issues”. We’ve partnered with several lending providers. However, funding is limited for these financial situations. Therefore, LaRussa

Fairway Chevrolet transforms dealership with new and improved facility Hazleton, May 1, 2012After six months the dust has nearly all settled, and Fairway Chevrolet is proud to invite local customers to check out a new dealership experience. A visit to the recently upgraded Fairway Chevrolet and the difference is immediately apparent: An inviting exterior façade with updated signage is currently under construction. However, a bright showroom featuring a customer greeting station, and a

comfortable customer lounge offering a flat screen TV, beverages and snacks is now open. Also, incorporated into the new lounge area is a children’s play area. In addition to the building renovations is a drive

thru service lane. After a service appointment has been made, the customer simply pulls up to the drive thru service entrance, the overhead door opens and the customer drives right into the building.

We’ve looked at the customer experience from all viewpoints, and the facility updates we’ve made cater to our customer’s needs to provide the best dealership experience, “said Jim Corazza dealer

principal for Fairway Chevrolet.” Fairway Chevrolet invested over one million dollars to make the significant improvements to their dealership. Although the outside building façade is not quit finished Jim Corazza said, “we are open for business as usual and I want to invite everyone into our upgraded showroom. We are so proud of the outcome.” Fairway Chevrolet is located at 1101 N. Church St. (Rt.309) in Hazle Township.

Auto Leasing - An Attractive Way To Purchase A New Vehicle Keith Laylo, Fairway Chevrolet sales manager, said “leasing is coming back in a big way after the recent automotive down turn.” Just a few years ago leasing was non-existent with some manufactures. This was due in part to stringent credit requirements, banks were just not lending money. Leasing is making a comeback and people may have forgotten the advantages of leasing. A lot of customers cringe hearing the word lease. They’ve never leased before and may be unaware of the benefits to leasing. With the price of vehicles on the rise, and the rising

cost of energy, leasing is once again a logical alternative to traditional financing. People like to be in what is known as a “vehicle turn cycle.” That is, holding onto their vehicle for 3 to 4 years. Most people like to upgrade after 4 years. New vehicle owners want the latest safety features and the best fuel efficiency. This is where leasing plays a most significant role in the “vehicle turn cycle.” Leasing companies offer a special on short term leases from 24 to 42 months. This is in the period where most people want a new car. Auto dealers experience, almost on a daily basis, people calling or coming

in to trade up to a new car, but they owe more then their car is worth. Dealers have customers that want a new car. These customers want to keep their payment the same as when they did a 60, 72, or even a 84 month finance contract and they paid on it for 3 years. However, a lot of that payment went to interest. Leasing is the perfect alternative for this type of customer.

They need little money down and in some cases, just their first payment and license fees. This can be well under $1000. The leasing option keeps payments manageable. Laylo said, “People ask me all the time, would I lease? I tell them, all I’ve ever done is lease my new vehicles.” I see the true benefit in it. I get to drive a new car every 36 months. I have a car that is always under warranty and I never have to worry about how much it’s going to depreciate. I get to choose a new car with the latest and greatest safety and technology

features, due to my three year lease, plus I don’t have to worry about warranty or depreciation. When purchasing a new Chevrolet, there are two captive leasing companies currently competing for your business. They are Ally bank and GM Financial. Subaru offers leasing through Subaru Motor Financing. Laylo said, “There are some very attractive lease programs currently being offered on new Chevrolets and Subaru models.” Fairway Chevrolet / Subaru is located on Rt. 309 in Hazle Township.

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

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I think it’s going to embolden employers in bargaining and discourage workers from joining unions.” Gary Chaison The professor of industrial relations at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., assessed the immediate impact of Gov. Scott Walker’s victory in this week’s Wisconsin recall that exposed the shrunken political muscle of the unions that tried to oust him.

OTHER OPINION: WISCONSIN VOTE

Unions must face fiscal reality

T

HE TAXPAYERS have had enough. That appeared to be the verdict of Wisconsin voters in deciding to keep Gov. Scott Walker, whose tough policies were endorsed in a recall election Tuesday. It was only the third time in the nation that a governor faced a recall and the only time that the incumbent survived. For all the fury that greeted Walker’s pugnacious positions, including stripping public employee unions of collective bargaining, the Republican refused to shrink from his record, even in the state that produced Robert La Follette Sr., the famous 20th-century Progressive. Many taxpayers who voted Tuesday believed the governor had created jobs and reduced the cost of government, a potent advantage in an age of EDITORIAL BOARD

deficits. Other factors were in play as well, namely the power and influence of money, much of which came from out of state. Even so, there was no secret what the fight was about – the perception in Wisconsin and elsewhere that public employees live better than the average American worker. The feeling exists in Pennsylvania, too, when taxpayers see what it costs them to sustain the state employee pension system and parents see teachers laid off because the district can’t afford them. The challenge, after the Wisconsin vote, will be in convincing public-sector unions, at a time of yawning deficits and little tolerance for tax hikes, to adjust to the nation’s fiscal reality.

ith depressed monthly job numbers released last week, showing only about 69,000 jobs created in May, many elected officials have gone on the defensive and expressed concern. I have a suggestion: Pass the bipartisan Senate transportation bill. Our nation’s unemployment rate lingers above 8 percent. But it’s even worse for the construction industry, with a jobless rate that exceeds 14 percent. Passing a bill that funds infrastructure projects across our nation will directly employ workers to build and repair roads, bridges, railways, runways and ports. At the height of the construction season in America, with communities everywhere in need of infrastructure improvements, numerous projects large and small are stalled for lack of funding. All Congress has to do to add nearly 1 million American jobs: Pass the transportation bill. At the same time House Republicans are criticizing a lack of jobs, they are holding hostage the largest job-creating bill. Republicans in the Senate, the Democrats in the Senate, the president and the House Democrats all support this bipartisan bill. This is all eerily similar to the irresponsible debt limit debate of last summer, which resulted in Standard & Poor’s credit rating agency downgrading the long-term credit rating of the United States government for the first time in its history. In February, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly (75 senators voted yes) passed bipartisan legislation – “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century” (MAP-21) – that calls for $109 billion over two years for the nation’s transportation infrastructure needs. This legislation will continue to support an additional 1.9 million American jobs, while supporting or creating 73,700 in Pennsylvania. However, the House of Representatives has failed to pass this immensely important transportation bill. As a House-Senate conference committee has been trying to reach agreement on a bill to take effect after the June 30 extension ends, the negotiations are getting bogged down unnecessarily. That’s because rather than serving the American people by passing the bipartisan Senate bill, Republican House lawmakers want to force controversial concessions. At a time when our nation’s infrastructure is literally deteriorating, our economy is sluggishly moving along and Americans need work, we need leadership. We need a leader who will fight to bring jobs home, right here, in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Matt Cartwright Democratic candidate for Congress Moosic

Writer: Leighton should resign as city’s mayor

W

ilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton, you question why you are being singled out. The only people questioning your mayoral duties are the taxpaying citizens who live within your district and are sick of being taken for a ride. OK, Petroleum Service Co. has had the city’s fuel contract for years; but then you should have said, well, maybe there is a company that can be just as “professional” but cheaper. But no other company contributed to your political campaign, so apparently they are automatically unprofessional. You think you and your administration are going to continue to take taxpayer money like it is a free money tree? The economy is broke and so is Wilkes-Barre. But now that there are city watchdog groups digging into your secrets and bringing it to the public’s awareness, you feel you’re being picked on. This is only the beginning, until all your skeletons are out of the closet. I call for your resignation and for the city to get a leader who does business that will benefit only the people who pay for it: the struggling taxpayers. S. Cibello Bear Creek Township

Advocate urges support of property tax reform

I

n reply to a recent letter to the editor regarding state Rep. Karen Boback’s position on legislative issues, I would like to address one particular issue about which I know she continues to be passionate: property tax elimination. She has been on board with this legislation since day one. As president of CAPTaxes (Citizens Against Property Taxes), my main purpose here is to inform readers we have a new bill that replaced the former Bill 1275, introduced by former state Rep. Sam Rohrer who no longer is in the House of Representatives. The new House Bill 1776 is known as the Property Tax Independence Act and

DOONESBURY

was introduced this year by state Rep. Jim Cox. And I’m happy to say that two of the area’s state representatives have co-signed the bill: Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, and Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township. Also, the Senate has introduced its own bill on property tax elimination, SB 1400. I became involved with our local group when I realized that many of our senior citizens would lose their homes following the countywide property reassessment. I, along with Dorothy Spencer, decided we needed to do more than just help with the appeals process. We needed to join the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition and push for legislation that would abolish property tax. The ruse we were handed by our former state administration that the money from the casino gaming revenues would eliminate our property taxes was just that, a ruse, a trick to have us jump on board and vote for something that would allow the state to load money into its own coffer. We will see little more of the money from the gambling than what you are presently receiving. That is a done deal. So let’s move on. This piece of legislation is exclusively for the property owners of Pennsylvania to hold onto their properties. And for you naysayers out there who wanted to find fault with this legislation because, for one reason, you don’t want the sales tax to go up another cent, you had better watch very closely the bills that are being submitted at the state capital! You see other bills being submitted to raise the taxes in order to benefit, once again, the various government entities. So a choice needs to be made. Do you want your tax dollars to fund more government spending on pet projects? Would you rather put those tax dollars into your own pocket to help you hold onto your property, improve it and help the economy in your area? Support HB 1776 and SB 1400 so we can keep our homes. Also, support representatives and senators who are looking out for your interests. Call them and urge them to support the bill; let’s see that this finally becomes a done deal. We are still fighting.

An artist’s rendering of the proposed Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on-site hotel that was presented to Plains Township officials in 2009. The plans have changed somewhat – fewer floors and rooms -- but the proposal is moving forward.

HOTEL Continued from Page 1A

Genetti said. “We can’t compete with a $50 subsidy on having an event up at the Mohegan Sun.” But Genetti also noted the casino doesn’t appeal to everyone, and he is tailoring his business to groups who may not wish to meet at a casino. “I’m not so sure I’d want to have my daughter’s wedding at a casino, and have 15 or 20 or 25 percent of the people wander away from the convention center floor into the casino,” Genetti said. Renovations, marketing To capitalize on that notion, Genetti said he has created a new high-end wedding package, the Genetti Oyster Wedding, and invested several million dollars in renovations, and he said it’s paying off. Room rentals and banquets were up in 2011, and he is expecting the trend to continue this year, he said. Merle Mackin, director of the Luzerne County Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, agreed that other hotels and banquet facilities will still find a niche, even if the Mohegan Sun eventually dominates the market.

with the highest yearly total thus far. Suicide totals have exceeded U.S. combat deaths in Afghanistan in earlier periods, including for the full years 2008 and 2009. The suicide pattern varies over the course of a year, but in each of the past five years the trend through May was a reliable predictor for the full year, according to a chart based on figures provided by the Armed Forces Medical Examiner. Numbers rise despite aid The numbers are rising among the 1.4 million active-duty military personnel despite years of effort to encourage troops to seek help with mental health problems. Despite those efforts, many in the military believe that going for help is seen as a sign of weakness. Kim Ruocco, widow of Marine Maj. John Ruocco, a helicopter pilot who hanged himself in 2005 between Iraq deployments, said he was unable to bring himself to go for help. “He was so afraid of how people would view him once he went for help,” she said in an interview at her home in suburban Boston. “He thought that people would think he was weak, that people would think he was just trying to get out of redeploying or trying to get out of service, or that he just

munity and to quickly become the face of the organization, he knows there are hard issues at hand that must be addressed. “The board members (during the interview process) were very open about what the chamber was, where they had been and what the actions were that had been taken to begin to turn the or-

“It certainly will attract business that we have not been able to provide in the past, but I don’t necessarily see it as tremendously detrimental to all the weddings and class reunions and all of the other conventions and conferences that we have at the existing properties,” Mackin said. “Because of the fact that it’s located within a casino environment, there are certain groups who may not feel it’s appropriate for their particular event or banquet.” Mackin also said the casino will attract guests from further afield than those traveling the casino now, and some guests coming specifically to gamble will likely take advantage of other area tourism amenities. They could return in the future to take advantage of those features, he said. “Any reason we can attract or invite additional visitors to the area has to be a net positive overall,” Mackin said. Boost to area businesses Retired Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau President Bob Uguccioni has seen numerous inclusive resorts open in his more than 40 years in the hospitality industry. He compared the casino hotel to Great Wolf Lodge, a 600-room hotel and indoor water park in Scotrun, Monroe County. That resort hasn’t detracted

from other area hotels since its opening in 2005 because it offers something different and attracts its own set of visitors, Uguccioni said, and it has also boosted business at nearby restaurants, gas stations and other businesses. “If it’s just another hotel or another motor inn without any kind of attraction or uniqueness to it, then it’s just a detraction from the other businesses and hotels in the area,” Uguccioni said. “But this is different, with the convention center and the entertainment package they put together with the casino and the harness racing. “It’s a lot different than another 230-room hotel, which I think everybody in the area agrees we don’t need because occupancy is still difficult because of the economy. It’s not going to be drawing from existing hotels dramatically, but it will develop a lot of business on its own,” he said. Other local hotel owners were optimistic that the expansion of Mohegan Sun and the opening of its convention center could actually bolster their business. Rick Kornfeld, general manager for The Woodlands Inn in Plains Township, said having a large convention center near his hotel will be a boon, not a burden. “The casino is our number one room provider… and we don’t see that changing much,” Korn-

that many senior military officers do not grasp the nature of the suicide problem. A glaring example of that became public when a senior Army general recently told soldiers considering suicide to “act like an adult.” Maj. Gen. Dana Pittard, commander of the 1st Armored Division, last month retracted — but did not apologize for — a statement in his Army blog in January. He had written, “I have now come to the conclusion that suicide is an absolutely selfish act.” He also wrote, “I am personally fed up with soldiers who are choosing to take their own lives so that others can clean up their mess. Be an adult, act like an adult, and deal with your real-life problems like the rest of us.” He did also counsel to seek help. His remarks drew a public rebuke from the Army, which has the highest number of suicides and called his assertions “clearly wrong.” Last week the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, said he disagrees with Pittard “in the strongest possible terms.” The military services have set up confidential telephone hotlines, placed more mental health specialists on the battlefield, added training in stress management, invested more in research on mental health risk and taken other measures. The Marines established a counseling service dubbed A harsh response “DStress line,” a toll-free number But Xenakis said he worries that troubled Marines can call

couldn’t hack it – when, in reality, he was sick. He had suffered injury in combat and he had also suffered from depression and let it go untreated for years. And because of that, he’s dead today.” Jackie Garrick, head of a newly established Defense Suicide Prevention Office at the Pentagon, said in an interview Thursday that the suicide numbers this year are troubling. “We are very concerned at this point that we are seeing a high number of suicides at a point in time where we were expecting to see a lower number of suicides,” she said, adding that the weak U.S. economy may be confounding preventive efforts even as the pace of deployments eases. Garrick said experts are still struggling to understand suicidal behavior. “What makes one person become suicidal and another not is truly an unknown,” she said. Dr. Stephen N. Xenakis, a retired Army brigadier general and a psychiatrist, said the suicides reflect the level of tension as the U.S. eases out of Afghanistan though violence continues. “It’s a sign in general of the stress the Army has been under over the 10 years of war,” he said in an interview. “We’ve seen before that these signs show up even more dramatically when the fighting seems to go down and the Army is returning to garrison.”

ganization back into the vibrant group it should be,” Moore said, noting that for the chamber, as for many businesses, it has been “a difficult time.” The chamber has downsized its staff by more than half in the past five years and given board members a more active role. Moore said he has been impressed with the chamber’s efforts to deal with the lingering effects of recession but sees plenty of work yet to be done. He is also not convinced the recession, declared dead by na-

tional pundits in 2009, is truly over. “I’d be hard pressed to say the recession’s over. The economy’s still slow,” Moore said. And he applauded the chamber’s board for recognizing this and continuing to redefine itself and right size its staff and responsibilities. “The board has taken the strong measures that needed to be taken, they were difficult measures,” Moore said. And they are not over. His presence should be a loud and clear message that the chal-

feld said. “I know they’re going to have that hotel, but the hotel’s going to attract more people to the casino. We’re sitting here just a quarter of a mile away and we’ll take that overflow once that hotel is built.” Developer sees opportunity Developer Robert Tamburro is building a new hotel in the same area, just south of the casino on Route 315, as well as several restaurant and office building sites along the same corridor. Tamburro won’t operate the hotel – he said it will be run by an as-yet-unnamed hotel chain well known on the East Coast – but is optimistic about the economic benefit of the hotel/convention center for the surrounding area. “Hopefully, it will provide a venue for more people from outside the area to visit Greater Wilkes-Barre,” Tamburro said. “I assume having lodging onsite will be an opportunity to bring people from farther away from our area for an extended period of time, so we really feel good about it.” “From a commercial developer’s perspective I don’t think it’s anything but positive,” he added. “One of the key components to development is traffic and activity, and I think as Mohegan Sun grows it’s only going to increase the traffic and activity in this corridor.” anonymously. They also can use a Marine website to chat online anonymously with a counselor. The Marines arguably have had the most success recently in lowering their suicide numbers, which are up slightly this year but are roughly in line with levels of the past four years. The Army’s numbers also are up slightly. The Air Force has seen a spike, to 30 through May 27 compared to 21 at the same point last year. The Navy is slightly above its 10-year trend line but down a bit from 2011. As part of its prevention strategy, the Navy has published a list of “truths” about suicide. “Most suicidal people are not psychotic or insane,” it says. “They might be upset, griefstricken, depressed or despairing.” A broadbased response In a report published in January the Army said the true impact of its prevention programs is unknown. “What is known is that all Army populations ... are under increased stress after a decade of war,” it said, adding that if not for prevention efforts the Army’s suicide totals might have been as much as four times as high. Marine Sgt. Maj. Bryan Battaglia, the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently issued a video message to all military members in which he noted that suicides “are sadly on the rise.” “From private to general, we lenges are not dire, he said. “If I didn’t think the issues were surmountable I wouldn’t have come here,” Moore said. He said the chamber has been “a developer of last resort for a long time. And that’s led to some of the problems the chamber’s experienced. As we look to the future we may or may not stay in the development business. The private sector is really stepping up … perhaps it’s time for the chamber to start backing out of the developing end.

last month was still about 21,000 below the average of the five years before 2007, when the Great Recession began. Walter Nichols, a local area unemployment statistics analyst with the state Department of Labor & Industry, said statewide employment data for teens mirrors the national trend. “The increase in employed this year from April to May is about double what it was last year, but the overall number of employed is down from what it was last year,” Nichols said. That bears out in what Thomas and some other local teens are experiencing. Melisa Perkowski, a 17-yearold attending Greater Nanticoke Area High School, said she needs a job to help pay the loans she’ll need to pursue an education in human services at Luzerne County Community College. “I’ve never had a job… I’ve tried, though, and applied everywhere online,” she said. Kasey Cooper, 18, of Nanticoke, is pursuing a degree in dental hygiene at LCCC and starts work at Primo’s Hoagies next week. Finding a job, she said, is “really, really hard. … I just got lucky.” Cody Yermal, who graduated on Thursday from Crestwood High School, also feels lucky in his two past jobs at Family Dollar in Ashley and Grotto Pizza at Wyoming Valley Mall. “The only jobs I’ve gotten are through family and friends,” he said. Teen stats rebounding Anthony Liuzzo, director of the master of business administration program at Wilkes University, said he initially found the 120 percent increase in teenage summer hires “a little perplexing” given that the economic recovery “has flattened a little.” But, Liuzzo noted, teens are one group that got hit the hardest when the recession hit in 2008, “and they’re the ones who are going to make the biggest bounce back when the economy starts to rebound.” He also said it’s possible that companies are experiencing shoulder an obligation to look and listen for signs and we stand ready to intervene and assist our follow service member or battle buddy in time of need,” Battaglia said. The suicide numbers began surging in 2006. They soared in 2009 and then leveled off before climbing again this year. The statistics include only active-duty troops, not veterans who returned to civilian life after fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. Nor does the Pentagon’s tally include non-mobilized National Guard or Reserve members. The renewed surge in suicides has caught the attention of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Last month he sent an internal memo to the Pentagon’s top civilian and military leaders in which he called suicide “one of the most complex and urgent problems” facing the Defense Department, according to a copy provided to the AP. Panetta touched on one of the most sensitive aspects of the problem: the stigma associated seeking help for mental distress. This is particularly acute in the military. “We must continue to fight to eliminate the stigma from those with post-traumatic stress and other mental health issues,” Panetta wrote, adding that commanders “cannot tolerate any actions that belittle, haze, humiliate or ostracize any individual, especially those who require or are responsibly seeking professional services.” “It’s going to take time to do that,” Moore said, “but over the next two to three years I think you’ll start to see the chamber heading in a different direction rather than being a developer.” That direction is likely going to be one more focused on economic development. “Job creation, job development, going out and actively recruiting businesses ... . Really focusing on selling this area as the place to be,” Moore said. Half of his career has been spent

growth and need to make new hires but could still be uneasy about hiring permanent adult workers and, instead, going with teens. “They could be putting a Band Aid on their employment needs at this time and the best Band Aid is a teenager – it’s very easy to get rid of them when they go back to school,” and they don’t command high salaries, Liuzzo said. John Maday, membership services coordinator at the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, said high turnover usually accompanies teen employees. Service and retail businesses must weigh that and paying lower wages against the need for development of close customer relations and attention to detail that long-term adult employees can offer, he said. Tailor-made teen jobs At Sno Cove in Scranton, one of the biggest area employers of teenagers, general manager Mark Verrastro said his summer staff includes about 150 to 200 of them. “Our jobs are tailored to kids, to be honest,” he said. The resort’s water park opened for weekends on Memorial Day and will be open seven days a week beginning Saturday, so he begins hiring lifeguards and other summer employees early. Verrastro said the number of jobs available for teens there has “pretty much been steady” throughout the recession. But there also have been new local jobs created since last year that could be filled by teens. Ed Kowalczyk, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center at Wilkes University, said he has seen an uptick in the new business startups since last year, mostly in retail and service businesses – the kinds of companies that generally employ teens. Kowalczyk said new business owners want to limit their debt as much as possible, which means keeping initial payrolls low. If teens who normally work summer jobs were being hired by new businesses throughout the year, there could be more openings for those summer jobs.

and his request to reschedule the hearing was not accommodated. Finn said closure of the Montoursville APU is part of a larger plan that includes scaling down the helicopter fleet from eight to six. She said an assessment showed that the APUs “were not strategically located.” Finn said decisions such as the transfer of aviation operations from Montoursville to other APUs throughout the state are never easy and not without consequence. “But in these difficult economic times, such actions are necessary to continue with the many facets of our organization.” Finn said detailed studies were conducted and included such factors as flight time, weather conditions, current and anticipated requests for service as well as the operational and budgetary concerns of the department. “In addition, our personnel complement is nearing dangerous levels. With just one cadet class entering the academy this month, Col. Noonan does not have the luxury to assign personnel to the aviation section. Obviously, if there are no pilots, the aviation assets are useless,” Finn said. Toohil said legislators need to fund more state police cadet classes “so we can get more cadets graduated and more boots on the ground.” working for chambers of commerce, the other half has been spent in business associations, giving him a unique perspective on what businesses want and how chambers can provide it. He envisions more cooperation between the chamber, businesses and area colleges and universities and more cooperation between the region’s large and small chambers of commerce. Moore replaces Todd Vonderheid, who stepped down in November.

Dickey (9-1) tossed four-hit ball for scoreless 7 1-3 innings and extended the longest shutout streak of his career to 24 2-3 innings — a span that began against Pittsburgh and continued against San Diego, St. Louis and the Nats. Dickey became the first pitcher in the majors to reach nine wins this season. He also exceeded his victory total from last year, when he often was the victim of poor run support. Duda backed Dickey with his fifth homer in eight games, a two-run shot in the fifth against Chien-Ming Wang (1-2). Dodgers 8, Phillies 3

PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Harang got his 100th career victory as Los Angeles overcame a two-run, sixth-inning deficit, and the Dodgers won to complete their first fourgame sweep at the Philadel-

phia Phillies in 66 years. Brewers 4, Cubs 3

MILWAUKEE — Norichika Aoki homered twice, including a drive off Casey Coleman (0-1) leading off the 10th inning. The former Japanese batting champion entered the game with one homer, an inside-the-park Giants 8, Padres 3

SAN DIEGO — Matt Cain (7-2) struck out nine in seven innings, allowing three runs — none earned — and seven hits to win his sixth straight start. Pirates 5, Reds 4

CINCINNATI — Michael McKenry drove in the first earned run allowed by Aroldis Chapman with an RBI double in the 10th inning, rallying the Pittsburgh Pirates to a victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Braves 8, Marlins 2

MIAMI — Jason Heyward hit two solo homers to center and the Atlanta Braves again stymied the Miami Marlins to complete a three-game sweep with a victory.

Ducks not being left on the pond The Times Leader staff

DURHAM, N.C. – Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre has had a key to beating Durham during the current four-game series: get timely hits with runners in scoring position. During the first two games of the series, the Yankees hit .375 (12-for-32) with runners on either second or third to ride to victories. The same happened on Thursday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park as the Yankees went 3for-9 with runners in scoring position en route to a 6-2 victory over the Bulls. The first big hit Thursday came from Jack Cust, who singled in Kevin Russo in the top of the first as the Yankees jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead. Russell Branyan, who has been a thorn in the side for the Bulls this series with three home runs in the first two games, got a clutch hit in the Yankees’ four-run fifth, plating two runs on a single to put SWB ahead 5-0. Colin Curtis (2-for-4) came through with another key hit for SWB in the top of the eighth with a run-scoring double to put the Yankees ahead 6-0. That was more than enough support for Nelson Figueroa, who picked up his fourth win of the season to move to 4-2 despite making his third appearance in six days. Figueroa, who went six shutout innings allowing just three hits, pitched six innings during a start on June 2 and came on in relief on Monday to pitch one inning. The Bulls plated a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth to cut the Yankees lead to 6-2. Durham also had the tying run at the plate in the inning with the bases loaded against Yankee reliever Manny Delcarmen. Delcarmen rebounded to get out of the inning without allowing another run to score. Montrose grad Rich Thompson, who was optioned to Durham from Tampa Bay earlier in the week, went 2-for-5 with a stolen base for the Bulls. Doug Bernier paced SWB’s offense going 3-for-4 with a double. Yankees 6, Bulls 2 Yankees

Pitcher firing Bullets stops Royals By DEREK LEVARSE levarse@timesleader.com

PINE GROVE -- Holy Redeemer’s players and fans rose to their feet. The Royals had two runners on for the first time all night and Dom Policare connected solidly with a pitch he sent out to center. The yells got louder as the outfielder kept retreating to the fence, finally quieting when the catch was made with a few steps to spare. Three outs. The Royals’ best shot at a rally was over. Their bats never would solve Brandywine Heights pitcher Michael Hunter. The sophomore right-hander threw a one-hitter and struck out 15 as the Bullets ended Redeemer’s season with a 7-1 win in Thursday’s PIAA Class 2A quarterfinal at Walter Stump Stadium in Pine Grove. “He was great,” Royals coach Chris Ritsick said of Hunter. “For a sophomore, he was poised on the mound. Threw three pitches any time he wanted for strikes. And throwing into the mid to upper 80s doesn’t hurt either.” Redeemer hitters, who had pieced together 30 runs in the team’s first five postseason games, were off-balance for the entire game, which was delayed an hour because of weather. Only pitcher Cody Tsevdos, a hard-luck loser on the mound, cracked Hunter, sending the first pitch he saw in the fourth inning over the wall in center for a solo home run. That pulled the Royals (10-11) within 3-1. They proceeded to draw a pair of two-out walks in the fifth to bring up Policare, who nearly gave them the lead with one swing. “With the home run, I think we got a little bit of momentum,” Ritsick said. “And then with the two walks in the meat of our order, Dom just barely missed a pitch that could have possibly changed the game. “We didn’t come up with the clutch hit today.” Instead, Brandywine Heights put the game away in the home half of the fifth, picking up three unearned runs to make it 6-1. Two Redeemer errors extended the inning, with the second one bringing home a run before Hunter stepped in and drove in

two more with a single. An insurance run in the sixth helped send the Bullets (17-7) to the state semifinals for the fourth time since 2004. Hunter struck out the side in the top of the seventh to end the game, topping a 13-K performance he had in the District 3 championship game. "The report was that he gets stronger as the game goes on, so we were hoping to get to him early,” Ritsick said. “And that didn’t happen. That fastball, he started locating it better later on in the game. He ended up with a little more pop on his fastball as the innings went on.”

“He’s poised beyond his years,” thing to be proud of.” Bullets coach Chris Cole said of his pitcher. “He acts like a senior PIAA Class 2A quarterfinal Holy Redeemer Brandywine Heights out there.

Davis says going No. 1 in draft is ‘not set in stone’ CHICAGO (AP) — No matter how inevitable it seems, Anthony Davis wasn’t quite ready to pronounce himself the top pick in the draft. “It’s not set in stone,” the former Kentucky star said. It just seems that way. The New Orleans Hornets own the No. 1 pick later this month, and they’ll turn at least a few heads if they don’t take Davis. In a deep draft class, the lanky power

forward is right there at the head of it. Davis said Thursday at the NBA draft combine that the Hornets are the only team that has contacted his father. He said he’ll visit them at some point, although he’s not sure exactly when. And even though he wasn’t quite ready to buy a home in the Big Easy, there’s a good chance he’ll be the one heading to the podium when commissioner David

Stern announces the first pick of the draft. With his athleticism and gamechanging defense, Davis helped Kentucky win a national championship in his lone college season. Now he’s poised to join Bulls star Derrick Rose as the second Chicagoproductinfiveyearstobe taken with the No. 1 pick. “I used to watch him play,” Davis said. “He’s a monster. We played on the same AAU team.”

NANTICOKE

“all year long we’ve been getting big hits from multiple people in the lineup.” Donat had three hits, and Anna Behm and Faust had two hits each for Kutztown. Gola and Schinski had two hits each for Nanticoke. Eight Trojanettes had hits and six drove in runs. Winners of its last six state playoff games, Nanticoke will face District 4 champion Warrior Run, a 2-1 winner over Christopher Dock, on Monday at a site and time to be determined.

a pretty good hitting team, so we stressed to get up early on them. They came through like champs.” “It was unfortunate. Our pitcher settled down after that,” Kutztown coach Kevin Conrad said. “They picked a good inning to pick on her. And normally we have really solid defense. Other than that first inning, we played them even.” The Trojanettes could have put on their caps and gowns after that. They had hits in every inning, and finished with 13 hits. The12 runners left on base would have been a concern any other day, but not this one as the lead reached 8-1 in the fifth. With two outs in the fifth, Gow singled and stole a base – one of seven stolen bases for Nanticoke. Ange Hillan drove in Gow with a single to right and Katie Kowalski then doubled to right-center to plate Hillan. “This pitcher doesn’t match up to Ethel (Santai, the flamethrower from Pine Grove that Nanticoke faced Monday),” Gow said.

Now, they’re about to be in the same league, and they followed vaguely similar paths to get there. Both came from the city’s South Side and played one season in college for John Calipari. Rose starred at Simeon Career Academy and led Memphis to the NCAA title game before being drafted by his hometown team. Davis, on the other hand, was a late bloomer at Perspectives Charter.

Nanticoke’s Hannah Rubasky throws to first base during Thursday’s State Quarterfinal in Allentown.

“We were able to get in there and do what we can without the adjustments.” Even when Kutztown scored, there was reason to celebrate for Nanticoke. After a single by Donat and a double by Taylor Faust in the second inning, Emma Weaknecht lifted a fly to center that Hillan pulled down. In traffic with shortstop Gow and second baseman Kayley Schinski, runner Julia Egland broke from third.

Hillan’s throw to catcher Wolfe was not in time to cut down the run, but Wolfe then fired to Gola at third base to get a double play on Faust. “When you are up five, six runs, you can afford a play like that,” Williams said. Kutztown scored in the bottom of the fifth on a two-run homer by Jodi Weaknecht and a double by Tessa Dorr in the seventh. “We could have folded after that first inning,” Conrad said.

out but was ultimately ruled obstruction against the Spartans. Zingle was awarded second on an error. “I thought it was a bad call on the obstruction,” Milius said. “The basic rule is you have to give (the runner) a step. From when he received the ball and he threw it to the next guy, he had half a step. It’s a judgment call.” Zingle went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly in foul territory when a throw didn’t come immediately after the catch. That was enough for Crim, who shook off some midseason struggles to throw his best game of the season. “What I knew about (the Spartans) was that they hit the fastball better than they hit the breaking ball,” Moore said. “So I thought Zach was a really good matchup for them because he commands all of his pitches. “Just had a gut feeling about him. He was a kid I wanted to go to battle with in a game that meant this much.” “You’ve got to give credit to the pitcher,” Milius said. “He was full of confidence. We hit the ball, but they didn’t fall. Maybe if we could’ve gotten a couple of seeing-eye (hits), it would’ve changed the complexion of the game. But as the game continued, he got more confident. “We just didn’t get ahead in the count early enough to make him pay for it.” Indeed, the Spartans were only able to work a three-ball count four times in 28 plate appearances. They drew just one walk and finished with five hits -- singles

The idea came from the daughter of Brandon Igdalsky, who is the track’s president and chief executive officer. He is also Nick’s brother. · Large boulders at the entrance to the paddock area were repainted like the decal. · A larger version of the decal will be emblazoned on the grass near the start of pit road. The pin and sticker can be purchased together at the track for $10, with all proceeds going to the Mattioli Foundation. The foundation has donated millions of dollars to the area, including $100,000 to restore the Wyoming Monument in Wyoming that was hit by lightning in August 2008. There will also be a moment of silence, Taps and a 21-gun salute prior to Sunday’s Pocono 400 Presented by #NASCAR. Mattioli was a Navy medic in the Pacific during World War II. “The emotions are very, very mixed,” Rose Mattioli said. “We’re going to miss him dreadfully. But we’re going to do what he would want us to do. We’re going to continue and make everything happen

from Tommy Alexander, Colin Harrison, Mike Leonard, Evan McCue and Zielen -- without pushing a run across in support of Zielen. Making his first start on the mound in nearly a month, the senior left-hander scattered five hits while striking out four and walking two. It was the first loss against a Spartans starting pitcher on the season. Valley West finished the campaign without giving up more than four runs in a game. “Matt Zielen I thought did a yeoman’s job,” Milius said. “It was an excellent performance. Hard to win when you don’t score any runs. I don’t care what league you play in. You’ve gotta put some numbers up. “The kid deserved better. He deserved better. Two runs isn’t a lot, but it was enough today.” PIAA Class 4A quarterfinal

as though as he is right here. And I know he would appreciate it.” 200-PLUS A.J. Allmendinger was the fastest in the first tire test session Thursday, recording a speed of 177.190 mph in his No. 22 Dodge. That was nearly 2 mph fastest than the top speed posted by Mark Martin on Wednesday. The teams received two days of tire testing due to Pocono being repaved and Goodyear bringing a new tire to the track. Allmendinger said he ran as fast as 211mph down the front straightway, which is essentially a 3,740foot drag strip. “The speed is nothing down the straightaway,” Allmendinger said. “The problem is you have to turn at the end of it.” Considering 33 drivers topped 173 mph in the first session, Kasey Kahne’s qualifying record speed of 172.533 mph set in June 2004 appears in jeopardy. SHAKE COMING? After running on the new asphalt at Pocono, the Cup series moves to Michigan Speedway, which finished its repaving in November. Then it’s off to California for the tricky road course in Sonoma. The uncertainty, said Denny Hamlin, could shake up the driver standings. “I’d say so,” Hamlin said. “We’ve kind of got into the part of the season where you see the same top-5 guys or top-10 guys week in and week out. You’ll definitely see a shuffle these next few weeks as far as that’s concern because there are so many unknowns these next three weeks.” While no price tag was attached to the Pocono repaving, the Michigan Speedway website said it cost $7 million to pave its 2-mile track. Michigan used 22,000 tons of asphalt, enough to pave a 51⁄2-mile two-lane street.

Wives of McNamee and Clemens testify Eileen McNamee and Debbie Clemens took the stand regarding Brian McNamee’s evidence.

WASHINGTON — Eileen McNamee’s story differs with her husband’s in several ways, and her own version appears to have changed somewhat over the years, but there’s little doubt about one thing the estranged couple have in common: They both were furious when details of their oldest son’s medical condition were revealed at a Roger Clemens news conference four years ago. Eileen McNamee said she called Brian McNamee right away and left a voicemail. “I told him,” she said, “not to let him get away with it.” The next day, Brian McNamee retrieved the evidence that he said had

OXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots have released wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. The former Chad Johnson spent one unproductive season with the team, even though the Patriots went to the Super Bowl. He had 15 receptions for an 18.4-yard average and one touchdown, but rarely was a key part of the offense. Ochocinco, who played 10 seasons for Cincinnati before joining the Patriots. In seven seasons, he had seven 1,000-yard receiving years and a high of 97 catches.

been kept in and around a beer can inside a FedEx box for more than six years, the remnants of an alleged steroids injection of Clemens in 2001. The needle and cotton balls are among the key evidence in the perjury trial of the former star baseball pitcher, who is charged with lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied using performance-enhancing substances. Brian McNamee testified last month that he injected Clemens with steroids in 1998, 2000 and 2001 and with human growth hormone in 2000. There’s another wife involved in the case who is expected to contradict some of Brian McNamee’s testimony. Debbie Clemens took the stand late Thursday to begin her much-anticipated testimony on behalf of her husband, but there was only time for her to answer mostly questions about her background before court adjourned for the day. “My heart’s pounding,” Debbie Clemens said in the hallway seconds before entering U.S. District Judge Reggie Wal-

ton’s sixth-floor courtroom. She is expected to testify Friday that she received an HGH shot from Brian McNamee about 12 years ago and that her husband wasn’t present, thus differing with McNamee about the year and circumstances of the injection. Eileen McNamee — subpoenaed by the defense — was on the stand Thursday for a second day, and the government’s cross-examination highlighted discrepancies between her testimony at the trial and what she told the FBI three years ago. She told the jury Wednesday that when she discovered the box in their home and asked her husband about it, he told her it was for his protection and wasn’t any of her concern. She also said he didn’t mention Clemens or any other players. But on cross-examination, prosecutor Courtney Saleski asked about a 2009 FBI interview in which Eileen McNamee said her husband told her the con-

New Jersey confident despite being down 3-1

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — New 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs received a letter this week from a 6-year-old boy named Joseph that included $3.36 in cash from his piggy bank — the child’s contribution to try to keep Jacobs with the reigning Super Bowl champion New York Giants. The boy’s mother, Julie Armento, wrote that she explained to her son that the Giants didn’t have enough money to bring Jacobs back on a new contract, thus prompting her son’s adorable gesture.

Wiggins retains lead

LA CLAYETTE, France — British rider Bradley Wiggins consolidated his lead in the Criterium du Dauphine on Thursday by winning the fourth stage, retaining the yellow jersey for a fourth day in the warm-up race for the Tour de France later this month. Wiggins completed the 33-mile time trial from Villie-Morgon to Bourg-enBresse in 1 hour, 3 minutes, 12 seconds. Tony Martin of Germany and Michael Rogers of Australia were next. The Tour begins June 30 in Liege, Belgium.

Casey Martin back at Open

Fourteen years after Casey Martin made history as the first golfer to use a cart in the U.S. Open, he returns to the hallowed Olympic Club to play in the same tournament — and he couldn’t be more surprised. Born with a condition that makes it painful to walk long distances, Martin has focused in recent years on his job as men’s golf coach at Oregon. But after his unexpected victory in a local qualifier, he finds himself scrambling to prepare for one of the game’s most celebrated annual events. Martin, who won a landmark Supreme Court decision that allowed him to compete on the PGA Tour with his able-bodied counterparts, earned a coveted spot in the U.S. Open field after winning at Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell, Ore., on Monday.

Woods, Mickelson, Watson together at Olympic

SAN FRANCISCO — Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Masters champion Bubba Watson will play in the same group for the opening two rounds of the U.S. Open. It will be the first time Woods and Mickelson have been paired in the U.S. Open since the USGA grouped players off the world ranking at Torrey Pines in 2008. The rankings were used for another big group — Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood. Woods is coming off a win at the Memorial, making him one of the favorites next week at The Olympic Club. -- The Associated Press

tents of the box were from players. “I don’t recall,” Eileen McNamee replied. Explaining other discrepancies, the first-grade teacher said she was “very nervous” during the interview with the two FBI agents, which took place in the investigators’ car as she was leaving school. Major differences remain in the testimonies of the McNamees, who are undergoing contentious divorce proceedings in New York. Eileen McNamee says she didn’t pester her husband into the saving the evidence and didn’t help him place it in the box, as Brian McNamee claimed. However, they do dovetail in one other respect: Brian McNamee’s motive in storing the box of drug waste. Her testimony that he said years ago he was keeping it for his protection meshes with his testimony that he didn’t want to be a fall guy if the alleged drug injections were ever investigated.

New Jersey’s Adam Henrique (14) reacts after scoring the game-winning goal during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday. The goal forced Saturday’s Game 5 in New Jersey.

A devilish scheme By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

NEWARK, N.J. — Winning Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals did more than keep the New Jersey Devils alive. It gave them a sniff, a scent, a feeling. Call it momentum if you want. For one game, Martin Brodeur and the Eastern Conference champions showed they could not only play with the Los Angeles Kings, they could beat them, too. The 3-1 win in Los Angeles on Wednesday prevented the Kings’ coronation ceremony and forced the NHL to pack the Cup and ship it back to New Jersey for Game 5 Saturday night. Now comes the hard part for coach Peter DeBoer and the Devils. They have to follow it up with another win over a team that has posted a 15-3 mark in the postseason and not lost consecutive games. If New Jersey can somehow find a way, though, the Cup will be up for grabs. “We know every time we can win a game and chip away, the end goal gets a little closer,” DeBoer said Thursday shortly after the Devils’ flight from the West Coast landed. “I know it is a cliche, but I think if we win on Saturday night this series really takes a turn.” Kings coach Darryl Sutter felt his

team played better on Wednesday than it did in winning Game 2 in New Jersey. However, Brodeur stood tall, got help on two shots off the goalpost and rookie Adam Henrique scored a great goal late in the third period to put New Jersey ahead. “That’s why you play the series,” Sutter said. “Unfortunately, we have some spoiled people that think that everyone wins 16 in a row or something. A little confusing to me.” The Kings have been in this position before on this road to what could be the franchise’s first title since joining the league in 1967. They won three straight over topseeded Vancouver in the opening round, lost Game 4 at home and clinched the series on the road, where the team is an NHL-record 10-0 in this postseason. After sweeping second-seeded St. Louis in the second round, the eighth-seeded Kings followed the same formula in the Western Conference finals, taking the first three games from third-seeded Phoenix, losing a possible clincher at home

and then nailing down their first trip to the Cup finals since 1993 in Game 5. It would be appropriate if they raised their first Cup on Saturday, but the Devils stand in the way. After losing the first two games in overtime in New Jersey, the Devils were satisfied with their effort in Game 3 despite being beaten 4-0. With a bounce or two, they feel they could be up 3-1. On the flight back to New Jersey, DeBoer said his team had the same confidence it has shown throughout the playoffs. They were even-keeled and looking forward to Saturday. When asked if the Devils suddenly had a glimmer of hope, Henrique said the team simply won a game it had to win. “We know within the room we have the personnel to complete this comeback,” said Henrique, who scored the series clinching goals in overtime against Florida in Game 7 and the Rangers in Game 6. “There are a lot of people out there that don’t think we can do it, but it really doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks, it matters what we think in the room,” Henrique said. ‘We have to string together four in a row and every game is do or die. Every game is Game 7 for us and we have the confidence in the room we can do it. It will be tough but we are prepared to do it.”

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Yani Tseng isn’t accustomed to this: 4-over par in an LPGA Tour major. Luckily for the 23-year-old Taiwanese star, the winner of five majors already, there are three rounds to play on a course she dominated a year ago. Tseng is chasing a trio of unlikely leaders in Beatriz Recari, Ryann O’Toole, and Giulia Sergas, who each shot 3-under 69 on Thursday to tie after the opening round of the LPGA Championship. Despite matching her worst score of the year at 76, Tseng, the top women’s player in the world, was only seven shots off the lead after a round that included six bogeys and only two birdies. “I just couldn’t hit a shot, couldn’t hit on the green, couldn’t hit on the fairway,” Tseng said. “It was really tough for me out there. I was very disappointed. I love the golf course and I know I can have a low score here.” She did just that a year ago, shooting 19 under and winning by 10 shots. Duplicating the feat will be a challenge if she doesn’t snap out of her recent slump. In the Sybase Match Play Championship, she was knocked out in the round of 16, and last week tied for 12th at the ShopRite LPGA Classic — nine strokes behind winner Stacy Lewis. “I know it’s my mental problem,” said Tseng, who won three of the first five tournaments on the LPGA Tour this year. “I’m hitting so well on the driving range, and when I get on the first tee there’s something wrong. I need to get my mental setup like before at the beginning of this year.” Maggert, Merrick top leaderboard MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Jeff Maggert and John Merrick shot 4-under 66 on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the St. Jude Classic, leaving U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy two strokes back. Maggert took advantage of teeing off in the first group with calm conditions for the first seven holes, and finished with four birdies, an eagle and two bogeys. Merrick matched his best round of the year with six birdies and two bogeys, the last on No. 18 when his tee shot went into the water to drop him back into a tie for the lead.

There have been 30 horses who came into the Belmont Stakes with a chance to win the Triple Crown. Eleven succeeded in sweeping the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont, and 19 came up short in the final leg. While we’re waiting to see how Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another fares in his bid Saturday, here’s a look at some of those who just missed, and the alibis:

JOE BARESS For The Times Leader

TIM TAM (1958) The Calumet Farm bay colt finished second to Cavan by 51⁄2 lengths after running the final quarter-mile with a broken bone in his right front ankle.

CARRY BACK (1961)

MAJESTIC PRINCE (1969) The great jockey Bill Hartack was criticized by many for moving too late in the stretch in losing to Arts and Letters. It was Majestic Prince’s first loss in 10 starts.

SPECTACULAR BID (1979) Considered a cinch to give racing its fourth Triple Crown winner in the 1970s, the Bid stepped on a safety pin in his stall the morning of the race. He finished third behind Coastal after young jockey Ron Franklin gunned Bid to the lead and the colt faded in the stretch.

SILVER CHARM (1997) After reeling in rival Free House with an eighth of a mile to go, Silver Charm was on his way to immortality. But with 75 yards to go, jockey Gary Stevens saw another horse out of the corner of his eye. It was Touch Gold, and Silver Charm didn’t see him either until 10 jumps from the wire. By then, it was too late.

REAL QUIET (1998) A year after trainer Bob Baffert had his heart broken by Silver Charm, another of his horses — Real Quiet — took a run at greatness. But jockey Kent Desormeaux was criticized for making his move too early, and by the time Real Quiet was a furlong from the finish at Belmont, he began staggering home. Victory Gallop, runner-up in the Derby and Preakness, was bearing down and the two hit the wire together. After several agonizing minutes, the photo went against Real Quiet.

CHARISMATIC (1999) Trainer D. Wayne Lukas’ Triple Crown quest ended with a quarter mile to go, when Charismatic fractured two bones in his left front leg but still finished third behind 29-1 long shot Lemon Drop Kid.

WAR EMBLEM (2002) Baffert has had some tough luck chasing the Triple Crown and his front-running speedster was done in early — he stumbled out of the starting gate and finished eighth behind 70-1 long shot Sarava.

SMARTY JONES (2004) After fighting off strong challenges from Rock Hard Ten and Eddington along the backstretch, Smarty Jones and jockey Stewart Elliott opened a 31⁄2-length lead into the stretch. But the early duels proved to be Smarty’s undoing. He tired in the stretch and was caught in the final 70 yards by 36-1 long shot Birdstone.

BIG BROWN (2008) No longer on a regimen of steroids after the Preakness, although they were not banned, Big Brown moved into the far turn seemingly ready to challenge for the lead. Without warning, he was pulled up approaching the quarter-pole by jockey Kent Desormueax. The colt was eased across the finish line well behind the rest of the field, and trainer Rick Dutrow was unable to explain what happened. Da’ Tara, at 38-1, went wire-to-wire for the win. -- Associated Press

A scrawny, unattractive little colt was poised to make another thrilling stretch run to victory, but when jockey Johnny Sellers asked for more, Carry Back “spit the bit” — a racing term meaning he simply didn’t feel like running anymore. He finished seventh behind 65-1 long shot Sherluck.

10 trainers had violations In an AP report, 10 of 11 trainers at Belmont have a past with drugging horses.

UP NEXT BELMONT STAKES 4:30 p.m. Saturday, NBC

By JUSTIN PRITCHARD Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The affable man with the horse that may become the first Triple Crown winner in more than a generation can’t seem to outrun his unflattering nickname: “Drug” O’Neill. But Doug O’Neill is far from the only trainer in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes with a history of improperly medicated horses. The Associated Press reviewed the histories of all 11 trainers with horses in the race and found that 10 had at least one violation of medication regulations set by state racing boards. O’Neill has been under the most scrutiny because his colt, I’ll Have Another, won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and is the 4-5 favorite to add the Belmont and complete the first Triple Crown in 34 years. “We had the black cloud before he won the Derby,” D. Wayne Lukas, the elder statesman among trainers, said of horse racing’s drug problems. “Now it’s just gotten darker.” Lukas, who will run 20-1 Optimizer in the Belmont, didn’t mention his own record. He has had almost as many violations as O’Neill, though spanning a longer career with a larger stable and including none in the last 13 years. That’s something Penny Chenery, the doyenne of the sport and owner of the great Triple Crown champion Secretariat, apparently didn’t realize when she told The Atlantic magazine that I’ll Have Another’s owner, J. Paul Reddam, ”should be embarrassed that the trainer he has chosen does not have a clean record.” In fact, only one trainer in the Belmont has a clean record — Kelly Breen, whose horse, My Adonis, was a last-minute entry. Five of the others have had a single violation, typically for medications commonly used either to control inflammation or to prevent internal bleeding while racing. Their use is legal only within bounds. AP’s review included hundreds of rulings from state racing commissions collected by the Association of Racing Commissioners International, which represents the sport’s regulators. The majority of violations were unrelated to medications; improper paperwork was common, and there were a few for profane tirades as well. O’Neill shrugs off his nickname and denies the behavior it implies. “Not good,” he said when asked how it makes him feel. “But it just happens that my name rhymes with that.

“You can say whatever you want. I know at the end of the day I love my horses and I take great care of my horses.” For the 11 Belmont trainers, AP found 64 medication violations in the association’s database, which is regarded as the industry’s most comprehensive. The database did not include two violations O’Neill had in California for elevated levels of carbon dioxide in his horses’ blood. Adding those two, O’Neill had 17 rulings against him dating to 1997. Only the two biggest names in the sport, Lukas and Bob Baffert, were anywhere close to that number. According to the association’s data, Baffert actually had more, with 20, and Lukas had 15. Dale Romans, who will saddle second-choice Dullahan, had five violations, four of them for improper administration of commonly used medications. His most recent were two violations three years ago in Florida. Ken McPeek, the only trainer with two horses in Saturday’s race, had four violations, the last a positive test for the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac in Illinois in 2005. The five trainers with one violation were Manuel Azpurua, Chad Brown, Michael Matz, Dominick Schettino and Doodnauth Shivmangal. One longtime testing official who reviewed O’Neill’s violations record for AP said he didn’t find it particularly egregious. “There are a lot of people in racing that have records similar to his,” said Richard Sams, director of the HFL Sport Science Laboratory, the official testing lab for Kentucky and Virginia’s racing commissions. “He’s getting a lot of attention right now obviously because he has the horse to beat.” The amounts that state boards fined Baffert and Lukas were much lower than O’Neill’s total, generally reflecting the more routine nature of most of the violations. Lukas was assessed $500, Baffert $5,800 — and O’Neill $32,550. Lukas did, however, have one of the most serious violations — a positive test for the narcotic painkiller oxymorphone — more than 30 years ago. And Baffert — who trains Derby and Preakness runner-up Bodemeister but will run 8-1 shot Paynter on Saturday — got in trouble in 2001 after one of his horses tested positive for morphine. He blamed contaminated feed. Baffert said the case was dismissed. “If a trainer has a big barn, things are going to mess up,” he said. “It’s mainly mistakes.” While Lukas was last cited in 1999, and Baffert’s horses have been relatively problem free in

recent years, O’Neill’s violations have been stacking up. His latest troubles are particularly ill timed. Just last month, the California Horse Racing Board decided to suspend him 45 days, starting after the Belmont, because one of his horses had elevated carbon dioxide levels in its blood. High carbon dioxide levels reflect a change in blood chemistry that is believed to help a horse combat fatigue by limiting lactic acid buildup. While California’s board didn’t rule that O’Neill intentionally doctored the levels — typically done by feeding the horse a “milkshake” of bicarbonate of soda, sugar and electrolytes — the authorities concluded that because O’Neill is responsible for the care of his horses, he should be punished. Along with the suspension, he was fined $15,000. The horse finished eighth. ADVERTISEMENT

After winning more than 3,000 races during his illustrious career – including three etched into history as one of the greatest accomplishments of all-time -- Secretariat’s jockey will be in town for what could be the biggest racing weekend in decades. Ron Turcotte will be at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs today and sign autographs from 6:30-9 p.m. Fans can also buy a picture commemorating Secretariat’s stretch run at the Belmont Stakes in 1973, which capped off the Triple Crown. “As a sports fan, I think Secretariat’s Belmont race is one of the greatest things I ever saw,” said Dale Rapson, vice president of racing at Mohegan Sun. “We’ve had a lot of celebrities come to Pocono and I think this is one of the most prestigious people we’ve had come into the track.” The picture costs $5 and all proceeds will go to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The PDJF provides money for former jockeys who sustained severe injuries while racing. “Mr. Turcotte is a very big advocate of the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund,” said Jennifer Starr, head of media relations at Pocono Downs. “It’s really awesome that we’re donating all of the proceeds to that.” Fans can also bring memorabilia for Turcotte to sign but they will have to pay an additional charge determined by Secretariat management. Turcotte is most known for his time as Secretariat’s jockey but in 1972, a year before he rode Secretariat to the Triple Crown, he won the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes on the back of Riva Ridge. With the victories over the two-year span, Turcotte became the first jockey to win twostraight Kentucky Derbies and is the only jockey to win five of six consecutive Triple Crown races.

Turcotte likes I’ll Have Another Legendary jockey Ron Turcotte, who rode Secretariat to a Triple Crown, will sign autographs at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs today, a day before the Belmont Stakes. If I’ll Have Another wins, horse racing will have its first Triple Crown winner in 34 years. Does Turcotte expect history to be made Saturday? "You can’t get by him and to me he looks like a winner,” Turcotte said. “That jockey (Mario Gutierrez) seems to have a very good head on his shoulders and is a very calm, relaxed guy.”

“I was lucky because I had a good bringing up with my dad,” Turcotte said. “He was a good horseman and he taught me about horses even though we didn’t have any horses to race with.” Turcotte tried to keep his horses calm entering a race and stressed the importance of adjusting to how everything unfolds on the track. “I never believed in orders too much,” Turcotte said. “A lot of trainers will tell you how to ride a horse, but when the gate opens there’s nobody there to help you so you have to be alert and see things happening in front of you.” Turcotte’s love of horse racing came to him early in life because of his passion for the animals involved. “I love being around them, schooling them and riding them,” Turcotte said. “They’re a very generous animal and I’ve always thought they’re very smart.” Turcotte earned an induction into the Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 1979 after a career-ending injury. In 1978, Turcotte was involved in a riding accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. ADVERTISEMENT

Schilling’s video game company files bankruptcy

Former Phillies and Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s troubled video gaming company, lured to Rhode Island with a $75 million state loan guarantee two years ago, filed for bankruptcy protection on Thursday, and federal authorities have begun an investigation into the firm. The filing by Providence-based 38 Studios, which laid off its entire staff last month, was made in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. Its sister operation in Baltimore also filed for bankruptcy.

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

MOUNTAIN TOP – A year-long, $4.7 million expansion and upgrade to the Weis Market along Route 309 is complete and the grocer will hold a reopening celebration on Sunday. A 3,500-square-foot expansion includes larger produce, deli, meat, dairy and seafood departments. A new façade, larger entrance and freshened interior décor are among the upgrades. In addition, the pharmacy, which was located at the opposite end of the shopping center, has been consolidated into the expanded store. An eight-pump gas station has been built in the parking lot. “Our project is officially finished. We have quite literally reinvented our Mountain Top store,” said Dennis Curtin, Weis Markets’ director of public relations. “Virtually every part of our store has been improved and expanded.” Curtin said beer will not be sold at the location, as it is as some other Weis Markets, including the Dallas store. But a pizza kitchen has been added to the deli area. With the expansion, the store now occupies 46,000 square feet. To celebrate the completion of work, which began last summer and wrapped up this week, the store will offer product samples on Sunday and in a ceremony starting at 9 a.m. will hand out $17,500 in donations, including $14,000 to the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank in Wilkes-Barre, which serves Luzerne, Wyoming and Lackawanna counties. Other donations will include $1,400 from customer donations thorough the Weis Markets Paws for Pets Program to the Luzerne County SPCA and a total of $2,100 to be divided among several Mountain Top area youth organizations and the Wright Township Fire Department. Next up is a remodeling of the West Hazleton store on Route 93. The project, Curtin said, will cost several million dollars and will include the addition of a café selling beer and upgrades to several departments including relocating the deli so customers enter the store through the produce department. The project will be complete by early 2013. “By the time we are done, it will look like a new store,” Curtin said.

Jobless claims slip back

The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell by 12,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 377,000. It was the first drop in five weeks and down from an upwardly revised 389,000 the previous week. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose by 1,750 to 377,500. That’s the highest in a month. The claims are consistent with a job market that is expanding slowly. When new claims dip to 375,000 a week, it typically suggests hiring is strong enough to lower the unemployment rate.

Credit card use falls

By MAE ANDERSON AP Retail Writer

Americans cut back sharply on their credit card purchases in April The Federal Reserve said Thursday that consumers increased borrowing by $6.5 billion in April, just half of the March gain. The gain was driven by a $9.96 billion rise in a category that includes auto and student loans. That offset a $3.4 billion drop in credit card debt, the first decline since January. Total borrowing rose to a seasonally adjusted $2.55 trillion. That was slightly below the all-time high of $2.58 trillion reached in July 2008.

NEW YORK — The founder and outgoing chairman of Best Buy announced his resignation from the board Thursday and said he may sell off his 20.1 percent stake in the beleaguered electronics retailer. It’s the latest news to hit the Minneapolis company facing increasing competition from online retailers and a CEO scandal, and it removes one obstacle for a possible private equity takeover of the company. Shares fell nearly 8 percent in morning trading before rebounding to finish down 1 percent.

Banks to hike reserves

The Federal Reserve on Thursday proposed rules requiring the nation’s largest banks hold at least 6 percent of their assets in capital reserves, a key step in preventing another financial crisis. That’s up from a minimum of 4 percent currently required and in line with international standards. Banks have lobbied vigorously against the proposals. They say setting aside so much money in reserve could limit what they could lend.

WASHINGTON — Slumping job growth has alarmed some economists who fear the U.S. economy is in trouble. Ben Bernanke doesn’t appear to be one of them. The Federal Reserve chief sketched a hopeful outlook in testimony to a congressional panel Thursday and sent no signals that the Fed will take further steps soon to aid the economy. Bernanke acknowledged that Europe’s debt crisis poses risks to the U.S. financial markets. He also noted that U.S. unemployment remains high at 8.2 percent.

On Thursday, he said he would walk away from both of those positions, effective immediately. Schulze willingness to sell its stake removes a major obstacle should any private investment company seek a bid for the company, said Morningstar analyst R.J. Hottovy. “The fact that Schulze is open to exploring alternatives makes Best Buy a more feasible takeover target,” Hottovy said. But the company is seeking a new CEO, a process expected to last six to nine months, so it might not be the right time to seek out a bid, he added.

Richard Schulze, 71, has been with the company since its inception in 1966 and is by far its largest shareholder. The second largest holder, Fidelity Management & Research Co., has a 6.9 percent stake in the company. He initially announced in May that he would step down on June 21 at the company’s annual meeting after an investigation found he knew that the then CEO Brian Dunn was having an inappropriate relationship with a female staffer. At the time he said he would remain as chairman until after the company’s annual meeting on June 21 and as a director through the 2013 annual meeting.

The Fed could buy more bonds to try to further reduce long-term interest rates, which might encourage more borrowing and spending. Or it could extend its plan to keep short-term rates near zero beyond late 2014 until an even later date. John Ryding and Conrad DeQuadros, economists at RDQ Economics, said there was nothing in the testimony to “tip Bernanke’s hand” before the June meeting of the Fed’s policy committee. The Fed’s policy committee has been split between those who favor doing everything possible to strengthen the economy and reduce unemployment, and those more concerned about inflation risks.

And he said the Fed is prepared to take steps to boost the U.S. economy if it weakens. But he said Fed officials still need to study the most recent economic trends, including job growth. For now, Bernanke said he foresees moderate growth this year. He said he’s mindful that all that could change, if Europe’s crisis quickly worsened or U.S. job growth stalled. “As always, the Federal Reserve remains prepared to take action as needed to protect the U.S. financial system and economy in the event that financial stresses escalate,” he told the Joint Economic Committee.

NOTICE Pennsylvania's Proposed “Infrastructure” State Implementation Plan Revision for the 2008 Lead National Ambient Air Quality Standard On October 28, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated revisions to the primary and secondary lead national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). These standards were lowered from 1.5 micrograms per cubic meter (ìg/m3) to 0.15 ìg/m3. Section 110 of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA), 42 U.S.C.A. §§ 7410, requires states to develop State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions and programs to meet the NAAQS established by EPA to protect public health and welfare. Section 110 of the CAA also prescribes general elements for the implementation of SIPs. Sections 110(a)(1) and 110(a)(2) of the CAA, (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 7410(a)(1) and (2)), requires states to submit SIP revisions to the EPA Administrator that provide for implementation, maintenance and enforcement of the NAAQS. This SIP revision, generally referred to as the “Infrastructure SIP,” describes basic elements including ambient air quality monitoring, emission inventories, enforcement of control measures, modeling, nonattainment new source review, prevention of significant deterioration and stationary source monitoring. These elements of the SIP are designed to assure attainment and maintenance of the 2008 lead NAAQS. States are required to submit these SIP revisions to EPA three years from the date a new or revised NAAQS is signed by the EPA Administrator. This SIP revision was due to EPA on October 15, 2011. However, EPA released its final guidance on infrastructure SIP revisions on October 14, 2011; this SIP revision was delayed in order to ensure consistency with federal guidance. The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is seeking comment on Pennsylvania’s proposed Lead Infrastructure SIP revision which includes a certification of adequacy that the Commonwealth's infrastructure SIP elements satisfy the requirement of section 110(a)(1) and 110(a)(1) (2) of the CAA for the 2008 lead NAAQS. The proposed SIP revision is available on the Department's website at www.depweb.state.pa.us (choose Air Plans) or through the contact persons listed below. This “infrastructure” SIP revision adopts no new control measures. The Department will hold a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed SIP revision on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, at 1:00 PM at the Department's Southcentral Regional Office, 909 Elmerton Avenue, Susquehanna Room A, Harrisburg, PA. Persons wishing to present testimony at the hearing should contact Sian Rose, P. O. Box 8468, Harrisburg, PA 17105, (717) 787-9702 or sirose@pa.gov to reserve a time. Persons who do not reserve a time will be able to testify as time allows. Witnesses should keep testimony to 10 minutes and should provide two written copies of their statement at the hearing. Written comments may also be submitted on the proposed infrastructure SIP revision for the 2008 lead NAAQS. The Department must receive the comments no later than July 13, 2012. Written comments should be sent to the attention of Arleen Shulman, Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Quality, P. O. Box 8468, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8468, or ashulman@pa.gov. Please reference “Lead Infrastructure” in the subject line. Persons with a disability who wish to attend the hearing and require an auxiliary aid, service or other accommodation to participate in the proceeding should contact Sian Rose at (717) 787-9702 or sirose@pa.gov. TDD users may contact the AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 to discuss how the Department can best accommodate their needs. MICHAEL L. KRANCER, Secretary

Fresh mountain air after a one-tank-orunder road trip. Wine or beer waiting on a lawn dotted with blankets, brought-fromhome chairs and plenty of beach umbrellas. A preshow burger or dog enjoyed during the lead-up hours. Those are just a few of the perks the outdoor-concert season promises for music fans now looking to hit the road to enjoy a show at a NEPA venue Chris Perrotti calls a bona-fide “experience.” The general manager of the Mount Laurel Performing Arts Center considers the scenic Tamiment property one of the premier music destinations for Northeastern Pennsylvanians. It’s one of two major concert centers in the Poconos region; the other is Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe. “We aren’t just a place to see a good show; we’re an experience. It’s all about the fun this summer at The Mount,” Perrotti said, using the latest moniker officially attached to the Pocono Mountains venue that opened in June 2003 and has since undergone a number of tweaks and rebranding efforts. This year, the up to 2,500 people who can fit under cover and 7,500 people who can find a place on the lawn also can find a new atmosphere, courtesy of the Adams Festival Stage and Lawn Party. “There’ll be picnic tables, umbrellas and a barbecue going,” Perrotti said. “We want people to get to The Mount and relax, not have to rush to their seat.” The lawn parties will begin at 5 p.m. before each show, and discount barbecue will be available from 5 to 6:15 p.m. Additionally, radio stations plan giveaways, and those up on their band trivia can win tickets for future events. Wine and beer will be sold on the lawn and, in addition to the tables already provided, ticket-holders are encouraged to bring their own blankets and chairs. “We’re hopingtocreatea fun atmo-

Canadian rock band The Guess Who will usher in the 2012 concert season at The Mount tonight.

weekend, with The Guess Who and Robert Cray with Little Feat. Tickets are still available, Perrotti said, and a special deal will allow a concert-goer to buy tickets in the upper and/or lower indoor sections for both shows and join the VIP parties from 5 to 6 each night. A Golden Ticket promotion for this weekend means each seating section (excluding the lawn) contains one seat that will entitle the occupant to a Golden Ticket, redeemable for two free tickets to any two shows during the rest of the 2012 season. ••• A north-of-the-border group that has played in one form or another for more than 50 years now will officially usher in the new season at The Mount at 8 tonight. Canadian rock band The Guess Who found major success in the late 1960s and 1970s with such hits as “American Woman,” “These Eyes,” and “Share the Land.” The group is back on the tour circuit, albeit with some different members, and touting new material along with classic hits. After years of switching members, two originals remain in bassist Jim Kale and drummer Gary Peterson. Laurie MacKenzie now takes lead guitar, Leonard Shaw is on keyboard, and Derek Sharp rounds out the group as lead singer and guitarist. Peterson has weathered all the changes through the years but is confident this is the best version of the group since the original. “I believe this group is musically better than any of the others. This band is more mature both emotionally and musically, so it’s an absolute pleasure to play out with them,” he said. “I’m hopSee MOUNT, Page 4

sphere among beautiful mountain nights, something people will remember so they can’t wait to come back,” Perrotti said. Remembrance seems a key theme in the musical lineup as well, given a list of artists who span the earlier decades and promise distinct memory-lane vibes. Highlight acts include Ziggy Marley (son of Bob), The Temptations, Air Supply and 38 Special. A local band will take the Festival Stage at 6 p.m. before each show. Even if the weather isn’t cooperative, the party will go on. “We’re going to move it inside,” Perrotti said. “It’ll be no problem to shift everything to the inside so people can still relax before the show.” The merriment officially begins this

“For the first time we wrote a record where we have the least amount of criticism for ourselves,” Anzaldo said. Turning-point shows for the band actually took place recently, he said, right after “Zoo” was released. “The first weekend of shows we played right after the album came out were in L.A., Orange County and Berkeley. We’ve been playing those places since the inception of the band, and the response has just gotten bigger. To keep growing in those places and keep getting support when your sound is changing so drastically, well, that means a lot.” ••• No, you won’t hear Irish rock

band U2 jamming away at the River Street Jazz Café in Plains Township tonight, but the band that will play comes pretty close. Mullen might sound just like U2 but is not trying to portray the band and will not use the word “tribute” to describe itself. There won’t even be a hint of Bono’s trademark sunglasses on stage. “We call ourselves a salute to U2 because, unlike many other tribute bands, we’re not looking to go up on stage and act like Bono and The Edge and all that,” drummer John Joyce said. “We just try to present the songs as authentically and true to form as we can to celebrate the music.” Mullen is a group of five musicians with backgrounds in bands that have always played original music. Singer John Smith, guitarist Patrick Flynn and bassist Mark Kiesinger are members of Scranton-based band Underground Saints. Joyce and keyboardist Tory Ridder live in New York and perform in Six Ft. Sissy. The band came about when the group was looking to take a break from originals and play music it found inspiring. “We all grew up with U2 and found the group and the style of music very influential,” Joyce said. The band name comes from U2’s drummer, Larry Mullen Jr. “It’s something we thought diehard U2 fans could pick up on, while still being intriguing enough of a name for those who might not know its specific meaning,” Joyce said. Mullen plays U2’s betterknown tracks but also delves into more obscure songs. No matter the song, Joyce feels Mullen can bring the authenticity. “The five of us share a special chemistry that really makes the U2 material resonate with power during our performances.”

“We’re not in any hurry because we know we aren’t going anywhere. We currently have four that are done and another two ready to go into the oven, so to speak.” He said the band might someday bring the completed song collection to a record label, but in the meantime will play one or two new tracks during shows. “I listen to what we’ve put together and say, ‘I can’t believe that’s us.’ I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

With all the experience he’s had in the music business, Peterson said, he’s often asked what it takes to make it. “It’s kind of a very delicate balance. I tell people that the only thing you can do is do everything. We played weddings, in barns with cows below us, on the roof of an A&W. Do everything you can to keep going and to get better at your craft and get yourself known. And hey, no matter what level you make it to, if you truly love music you’ll be happy.”

Ceremony hasn’t been to the Wilkes-Barre area in quite some time and is looking forward to its return. “We made some pretty great friends when we were there last, years ago,” guitarist Anthony Anzaldo said. “We’re excited to go back.” The San Francisco Bay Area band will play at Redwood Art Space in Wilkes-Barre on Monday, the final show for the venue in the present space. Redwood will relocate to a yet-undetermined location. The hard-core punk group, which consists of lead singer Ross Farrar, bassist and guitar player Andy Nelson, bassist Justin Davis and drummer Jake Casarotti, is fresh off the release of its latest album, “Zoo,” which also called for a change in labels. Ceremony released two albums with Bridge Records before switching to Matador Records, where it feels at home. “They have an extreme appreciation for music and the artists,” Anzaldo said. “They want you on the label because they like what you do; they don’t want to change or mold you in any way.” This freedom gave Ceremony the chance to explore new aspects of its music. “We hit upon some new territory on ‘Zoo,’ ” Anzaldo said. “There are some post-punk landscapes going on. Ross’s vocal delivery isn’t as abrasive as previous stuff; he focused a lot more on melody and the personality of his voice.” Given that, “Zoo” still holds true to the band’s overall feel. “Zoo is absolutely a natural evolution from our previous recordings,” Anzaldo said. In addition to venturing into new musical territory, with this record comes a level of comfort.

ing this will be the last version of the band.” The members, now spread out over three locations, find little time to meet in person apart from tour dates. When they do get together, they work on new material. “We’re working on songs one at a time right now,” Peterson said.

Restaurant Review

In or out? Upscale or pub? You choose at Keeley’s Y

ou might want to make the acquaintance of the new girl on the West Side bar-and-grill scene. She’s in a familiar location at the end of Division Street at the foot of Pringle Hill but has a fresh look — as well as outdoor seating and, especially for sports fans, indoor booths with individual televisions. And the fare’s not only quite tasty but multifaceted, everything from pizza, wings and pierogies to meatloaf and lobster, with quite a bit in between. It’s safe to say Keeley’s Alehouse & Grille runs a nice gamut. Starters were in as plentiful supply as main plates and sandwiches — calamari with Thai chili sauce was just one traditional favorite with a twist — but we instead shared a teeming oval crock of macaroni and cheese for $8 as a kickoff. The classic comfort food comes three ways here: traditional or with bacon or chicken-andbroccoli add-ins for $2 more. Traditional proved not quite traditional, arriving with a top coat of cornflake cereal, over which we split our vote. My guest would have preferred the dish straight-up with a bubbly light-brown top, but I appreciated the twist, only wishing the flakes were crushed up a bit more and baked/toasted in to avoid the appearance of cereal sprinkled randomly over the pasta. Either way, the elbow noodles and cheese taken together were creamy and flavorful, not at all dry but not landing with a thud either. After that, the choices were all about genre. Sub, stromboli, pizza, pagach? Build-your-own pas-

Keeley’s Ale House & Grill on Division Street in Kingston is now plating a tasty mix of pub favorites and traditional dinner fare.

ta? Or dinner complete with salad and vegetable? Or something in between? We covered a base apiece. My guest chose a meatball-sub basket from the sandwich section, and I chose a traditional dinner I’d seen advertised at sister restaurant The Overbrook in Dallas: bacon-wrapped homestyle meatloaf. The sub arrived in the basket sliced in two huge halves, each containing a substantial portion of obviously homemade meatballs alive with flavor. Interiors were a bit pink, but I didn’t object because the taste was beyond reproach and the meat was obviously cooked. Both sauce and cheese were plentiful, and the bread was springy and fresh.

The accompanying fries were mountainous, so my guest left most of those behind. Fry fans, however, may devour the huge, hot portion of crispy, not-thinbut-not-thick seasoned taters and want to know, too, that here the spuds also come in multiple varieties as apps or side dishes: cheese, bacon-cheese and the like. My traditional dinner — from the shortest portion of the menu — was served with a generous starter salad that I especially appreciated for its crisp non-iceberg greens. Dressing choices aren’t especially creative, but a slightly creamy, all-around punchy balsamic more than got the job done. Even though I had a baconwrapped guilty pleasure of a

meatloaf waiting for me, I wanted to finish the entire salad, which proves how much it had going on. Now, about that meatloaf: Two hearty slices of your basic brown meat, edge-wrapped in the bacon, of course, became not so basic thanks to some herb-y additions to the beef mixture. I’ll admit it was tough to detect exactly what was giving the meat its obvious kick, but it worked. I deliberately saved one slice for a nextday sandwich, which meatloaf fans know can be even better than a first-day meal. A side of mashed potatoes was fantastically thin and creamy-buttery, also dotted with flecks of something flavorful. Vegetable of the day was a fresh, summery mix of thinly sliced yellow squash and onions, which were perfect, easy-eating partners. We were sated, but curiosity won the day, and we decided the smallest orders of a couple of pub staples might be tried out at home later. Pizza here comes in traditional round, fried Sicilian and multiple specialty styles, and all tempted. Traditional was a definite hit — neither thin nor thick and served with plenty of pleasant air pockets in the pliant crust. Sicilian al-

so looked equally cheesy-bubbly and beckoning. Onions are not baked in but come as a $1.50 addon, which was our only disappointment. To our pleasant surprise, however, these were at least placed atop the pizza while in the oven, taking away some of the raw edge. Stromboli comes in almost as many varieties as pizza: meat, meatball, sausage, sausage-pepperoni, veggie, cheesesteak, you name it. Any which way, we imagine, you can’t go wrong. Honestly, we thought we’d ordered a small veggie variety but got a pepperoni-sausage yet couldn’t complain. It was too good, and abundantly stuffed, to take back. Similar kudos for a bite of pagach, filled only with the defining ingredients of cheesy mashed potatoes and a light dappling of onions. Yes, friends, Keeley’s is off to the races, and she’s looking like a contender. Crowd cues clued us in that the management might still be working out or trying out a few things, menu items included, so good advice is not to arrive with a mind set. Grand opening comes later this month, but from what we’ve seen already, we have a winner, in quality and price. An entire family — little ones welcome — can easily and happily dine for $50 or so. That’s something hard to take lightly. Here’s to the real Keeley (a new addition to the Hogan family of proprietors) and her already-impressive namesake. Times Leader food critics remain anonymous.

any pirates sing of a bottle of rum, but patrons at the River Grille in Plains Township are thinking of something much bigger: a bucket. The Rum Bucket is a popular mixture at the Grille. So popular that bartenders don’t just run out of buckets; many bottles are lost. “Over last weekend we lost eight bottles of the mango rum,” Grille owner Mark West said. “They make so many of them that they’re constantly picking up and putting down the bottles, and the bottoms

give out.” The Rum Bucket is mixed together in a small plastic pail and consists of Cruzan Guava Rum and Mango Rum. It’s then topped off with cranberry and pineapple juice. “It’s equivalent to three drinks,” West said. Bartenders make sure to put several straws in the drink, though West said many opt to order the drink for themselves, and who could blame them? At $9 the amount of alcohol in it is a bargain, plus the vessel it comes in has a bonus: recipes for even more bucket-size drinks.

••• RUM BUCKET Served at: River Grille, 670 N. River St., Plains Township Price: $9 Recipe: • 3 oz. Cruzan Guava Rum • 3 oz. Cruzan Mango Rum • 4 oz. cranberry juice • 8 oz. pineapple juice Fill bucket with ice and pour ingredients in. Stir to mix it all together. Garnish with fruit slices, several straws and a mini umbrella.

Strawberry Festival is a blossoming tradition IF YOU GO

By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

What: Strawberry Festival When: 4:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday Where: Forty Fort United Methodist Church, 26 Yeager Ave., Forty Fort More info: $3 ticket includes ice cream with strawberries, a piece of homemade cake and a beverage. Wimpies and hot dogs will be sold. Take-out and sit-down dinners are available.

The ladies of the Forty Fort United Methodist Church stand in the kitchen in the basement of the building, thinking about how long the annual Strawberry Festival has been taking place. “As long as I can remember,” Theresa Thomas answered. “I can remember my mother doing it,” Lois Schwartz said, “so it’s had to be awhile.” Finally Jean Herbert settles it, causing the group to burst into laughter. “Since Methuselah,” she said, referring to the oldest person whose age is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. Though the Strawberry Festival hasn’t been going on quite that long, it has been taking place for more than 50 years. “It began when we had different Sunday-school classes here at the church,” Schwartz said. “The younger ladies who belonged to the Amicitia Class began it.” Amicitia means friendship, a bond strong among this group. It’s evident while merely standing among them.

“Back then the ladies would pick their own strawberries,” Thomas recalled. “We also used to have it inside and outside, but now we don’t because we can’t carry all the tables and chairs upstairs.” “Oh, speak for yourself,” Jeanne

Hostetler joked as she winked at Herbert. “We can carry them up there just fine.” Now the strawberries are storebought, but that doesn’t mean the food is any less delicious. A $3 ticket will get you ice cream with

strawberries on top, a beverage and a piece of homemade cake, baked by several different members of the parish. Wimpies and hot dogs, as well as a bake-sale table, will be available as well. The money raised will be split

“The best book bargains in Luzerne County”


A not-so-Grimm ‘Walk in the Woods’ By MARY THERESE BIEBEL mbiebel@timesleader.com

Hansel is crying in a kettle, probably because a witch wants to cook him for dinner. That sounds familiar. But some little pigs know how to use dynamite, and a woodsman is running around with a fly swatter, so which charming bit of folklore do we have here? If you visit the Back Mountain Memorial Library tonight or Saturday to see the Take the Stage Players present “A Walk in the Woods,” you’ll find it’s a blend of fairy-tale fare. “Jill from ‘Jack & Jill’ fame is actually the butcher’s daughter from ‘The Butcher, the Baker & the Candlestick Maker,’ ” director Chris Metz explained. “Because Jack made Jill tumble down the hill, the butcher is chasing after Jack, who is also the person charged with having his thumb in a pie. He gets thrown out of the village.” “He runs into Goldilocks, who is being chased by bears. He wants to try to help Hansel and Gretel get her back to her father. Red Riding Hood, who is scared of being in the woods, comes up with a solution that Goldilocks will wear the red cape and take food to Grandma.”

Stage THIS WEEK: JUNE 8 TO 14, 2012 Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s “tale of woe” set in Northeastern Pennsylvania with rivalries between Irish and Italian immigrants. Presented by Ghostlight Productions at South Abington Park, Clarks Summit. 6:30 tonight and Saturday; 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Free. 575-5185.

Front row: Amanda Feher as Goldilocks; Madison Chulick as Jill; Alex Metz as Hansel (in the witch’s cauldron); and Olivia Zablocky as Jack Horner.

What: ‘A Walk in the Woods’ When: 6 tonight and Saturday night Where: Back Mountain Memorial Library, 96 Huntsville Road, Dallas Tickets: $5, $3 children More info: 690-5439

In this kinder, not-so-Grimm fairy story, the huntsman chases the wolf not with a dagger or bow but with the aforementioned flyswatter. And even if the pigs blow up a house on this poor Canis Lupus, the wolf will survive and become a good buddy to Grandma. Metz said her cast ranges in age from 7 to 14, and the show is designed as a treat for the entire family. Take the Stage Productions’ next play, planned for July, will be “Scheherazade,” and feature lots of characters from “Arabian Nights.”

REVIEW

It’s a big week for DVD releases, especially if you like action films and USA Network series. Here’s what’s coming out: ••• “FALLING SKIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON,” GRADE B: The cable series, based on an idea by writer Robert Rodat and producer Steven Spielberg, is about the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world in ruins. Pockets of survivors band together to wage guerrilla warfare against the invaders. “SAFE HOUSE,” GRADE B: Denzel Washington plays a dangerous CIA renegade. Generally, action movies are either lightweight, puffed-up, macho-man vehicles or so cerebrally deep it’s almost impossible to follow the action. Despite having only a few directing jobs to his credit, Daniel Espinosa found a nice blend of chest-pounding bravado and smart storytelling. “ACT OF VALOR,” GRADE C-MINUS: A rescue mission uncovers a terrorist plot. There’s not an ounce of emotion when the real-life SEALs deliver their dialogue, which drains all life out of what should be very powerful scenes. “JOHN CARTER,” GRADE C: An Earthling ends up in the middle of a war on Mars. The script mixes pieces of several Edgar Rice Burroughs books in such an awkward way that the movie neither spotlights the planet’s battle nor the Earthling’s adventures. “JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND,” GRADE D-MINUS: Despite borrowing from multiple Jules Verne novels — and even a few other classic adventure books — this has less plot than a Super Bowl commercial. ALSO COMING TO DVD THIS WEEK: “PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON”: The mystery behind the lies begins to unfold. Troian Bellisario stars. “BREAKING BAD: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON”: Bryan Cranston’s tourde-force series continues. “NECESSARY ROUGHNESS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: Callie Thorne is a therapist with an unusual practice. “AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME 3”: Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz cross the country looking for treasures. “CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM: THE COMPLETE EIGHTH SEASON”: Offbeat comedy from Larry David. “HATFIELDS & MCCOYS: BAD BLOOD”: Jeff Fahey stars in this story of the ultimate family feud.

Movie Amy Allentown native Amanda Seyfried might have robbed banks, fired a gun and outpaced the bad guys in the 2011 sci-fi thriller “In Time,” but the top-billed Justin Timberlake got to do most of the cool stuff. In the new-to-DVD “Gone” (2012, Summit, PG-13, $30), it’s Seyfried who is called upon to save the day. The stakes are high in the kidnap-thriller as the actress scrambles to beat the clock and solve the mystery of her sister’s disappearance. “Gone,” set during a very tense 24-hour period, centers on Jill (Seyfried), a young woman from Portland who is starting to rebuild her life after escaping from

the clutches of a serial killer. She gets a job as a waitress and invites her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) to come live with her. Then, one night, Jill returns home after a long shift to find Molly missing. Jill imagines the same nut job who snatched her has returned for revenge. When the police do not believe her, Jill sets out on her own to save her sister. There’s no subtlety to the picture; director Heitor Dhalia slams through scenes, doing little to shape the performances or fi-

nesse the action. But despite the fact she’s forced to play one emotion – fear – throughout the whole movie, Seyfried works hard to pull you in. And she mostly succeeds. “Gone” is pure B-movie pulp, but it’s just good enough to get the blood pumping. ••• The Blu-ray debut of the comingof-age classic “Dirty Dancing: 25th Anniversary 2-Film Collection” (1987-2004, Lionsgate, PG-13, $20) is an occasion to mourn the loss of three figures who were central to the movie’s success. Director Emile Ardolino died at 50 in 1993. Patrick Swayze died at 57 in 2007. And former NEPA resident Jerry Orbach died at 69 in 2004.

As you probably know by now, “Dirty Dancing” stars Jennifer Grey as a vacationing 17-year-old named Baby who has the time of her life one summer with a sexy hotel dance instructor (Swayze). Just as important to the film, though, are the subplots that touch upon some tough subjects, such as unwanted pregnancy, class prejudice and Baby’s complicated relationship with her physician father (Orbach). Orbach, who was born in the Bronx and lived for part of his childhood in Scranton, WilkesBarre and Nanticoke before finding success on Broadway and as a regular on “Law & Order,” brings a world-weary gravitas to the role. His character might initially disapprove of his daughter’s relationship with Swayze,

but there’s no doubt Orbach’s character is a good man doing his best to understand the changing times. The sweet heartbreak of Baby’s summer romance, the charm of the second bananas (Orbach, Jack Weston, Kelly Bishop) and the energetic mambo sequences conspire to make “Dirty Dancing” an enduring delight. Also included in this Blu-ray package: the minor but enjoyable follow-up “Havana Nights,” starring Diego Luna and Romola Garai, as well as a full selection of featurettes, including tributes to Ardolino, Swayze and Orbach. Amy Longsdorf writes about DVD and Blu-Ray releases with local or regional connections.


‘Prometheus’ can’t top Scott’s original ‘Alien’

By ROGER MOORE McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” plays like the “Alien” franchise’s greatest hits. Scott, revisiting the 1979 sci-fi classic that made him famous, samples “Alien,” James Cameron’s “Aliens” and the later films in the series for this state-ofthe-art prequel, using plot points, situations, versions of characters and themes from those films to back-engineer his way into the day humans first ran into the ultimate alien killing machine. It’s a good-looking film with a first-rate cast. But “Prometheus” is to “Alien” what “2010” was to “2001: A Space Odyssey.” It’s the difference between a masterpiece and a merely watchable revision. Late in this century, two scientists, played by Noomi Rapace (the original “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) and Logan Marshall-Green, find that one last ancient cave paintingthatconfirmstheirtheory.
