Group rebuilding community I knew It’s been years since I’ve seen anything like it, but it was a welcome sight last Saturday evening in West Scranton. Residents of various ages some with children, some with dogs, and others by themselves - gathered at the edge of a skateboard park for a screening of “Despicable Me.” The Universal Pictures animated feature was shown by the West Scranton-Hyde Park Neighborhood Watch at the Jackson Street facility as the first of hopefully many more events. It’s also the first time in recent memory I can recall gathering with strangers for an

BEHIND THE BYLINES CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES event that wasn’t a church picnic, let alone the first time I have attended something without the intent of writing about it. But what happened June 18 can’t be ignored. To me, it’s a sure sign of the positive impact a concerned group of citizens can have on the neighborhood they call home. It’s one of the reasons Scranton Police Chief Dan Duffy has cited Watch President Karin Foster as the inspiration for his

“Be Part of the Solution” campaign that works to foster public-private partnerships between the residents who give a damn about the city and the officers sworn to protect it. And it’s why I’m proud to call myself a West Sider. Not many years ago, I rode my bike down the hill on 15th Street that we all considered deadly. It was almost a rite of passage to make it to the bottom and stop before careening into Luzerne Street. I walked to each of the schools I attended - LincolnJackson Elementary and West Scranton Intermediate and Senior High schools. That’s a feat many can’t say nowadays, either. People like Foster, who I consider an incredible friend of

this paper, and those involved with the watch have helped reclaim their corner of West Scranton. Unfortunately, in years past, it has become a corner of the city known for drug activity in the parking lots of pharmacies, the sale of once legal bath salts and more criminal acts in general. There’s a hope that a crime watch full of resilient residents paired with a proactive police department with a lead-byexample sort of chief can reverse that. A glimmer of that hope existed on a makeshift movie screen and reflected in the eyes of those who came out to be a part of their community last weekend.

CORDARO, MUNCHAK GUILTY By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

CRANTON – Robert Cordaro had one word as he left the William J. Nealon Federal Building Tuesday night: “Wow.” Cordaro, 50, the former majority commissioner of Lackawanna County, was found guilty of 18 of the 33 public corruption counts by a jury of six men and six women who deliberated for 7.5 hours in the public corruption case against him and current Lackawanna County Minority Commissioner A.J. Munchak. Munchak was found guilty of eight of the 21 counts against him. the decision Tuesday evening. “The jury verdict showed that a public office is not similar to an ATM machine to generate secret cash payments or an entitlement to pay for pleasure trips or a license to steal, hide or cynically misrepresent relationships that conflict with a public official’s duties,” he said. Cordaro and Munchak pleaded not guilty three times – to the original indictment on March 16, 2010, and to two superceding indictments that followed. Munchak continued to

Cordaro was found guilty of some of the more serious charges, including bribery, extortion, racketeering and money laundering and could receive a maximum sentence of 229 years in prison and $4.5 million in fines. Munchak, 64, faces up to 93 years and $2 million in fines after being found guilty of bribery, extortion and tax fraud.

Here’s a look at the guilty verdicts levied on Tuesday against Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former commissioner Robert Cordaro and the maximum possible prison sentences for the guilty verdicts. In addition to prison sentences, each guilty charge carries a maximum fine of $250,000.

proclaim his innocence on North Washington Avenue even after the verdict was handed down. “I never took a dime from that Mr. Kalina,” he said, referring to the $60,000 total in cash payments government officials said he accepted from Highland Associates executive Don Kalina that resulted in the bribery, extortion and tax fraud counts against him. “I’m disappointed. I believe in the jury system, but I just can’t believe that they’d believe him over me… They did a financial colonoscopy on me, and they couldn’t find that money. I don’t understand. “Hopefully, my lawyers will do what they have to do.” Attorney Chris Powell, who represented Munchak, said he, too, was disappointed that his client was found guilty of federal charges. “We started this trial two weeks ago. I thought he was innocent then. I still believe he’s innocent today,” he said. Munchak reacted strongly to the first guilty verdict levied against him, saying, “What?!” in

the courtroom as he stood near his attorneys. Four more guilty verdicts later, he was sitting down in his chair inside Courtroom One. At the end of the case, Munchak’s attorneys requested that each juror state an individual opinion on the eight counts of which he was found guilty. Each verdict was unanimous. Cordaro, meanwhile, was dumbfounded that jurors would believe Kalina and West Scranton funeral director Al Hughes, whom his attorneys worked to paint as adulterers and gamblers, respectively. Hughes was paid $10,000 per month by Acker Associates as a “marketing consultant,” and he passed the money to Cordaro so they could maintain lucrative county contracts. “I guess it goes with the old saying, ‘You lay down with dogs you get fleas.’ I certainly didn’t think it made you a dog,” Cordaro said. “They believed Don Kalina and Al Hughes over A.J. and I, and I’m really shocked by that fact. “I don’t know how this happened.” Cordaro’s lead attorney, Wil-

liam Costopoulos, said Monday in his closing that the payments from Hughes would “carry the day.” The $360,000 in payments over three years came with the eventual guilt of extortion and racketeering, which alone bring a maximum sentence of 100 years in prison. Smith said that abuse of power by government officials will not be tolerated, and the jury’s verdict in this case is proof. “Just maybe a public airing of the abuses of power that were shown here will help bring about a better day for the county government and the citizens of Lackawanna County…The federal agencies are here to stay and they’re here to make sure it is not tolerated,” he said. But the condemnation of the “sleazy” actions of Cordaro and Munchak, according to Smith, does not mean an outright end to corruption. “This investigation has concluded,” he said. “The larger group of investigations of corruption in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, particularly in Northeastern Pennsylvania, is continuing.” Both attorneys Costopoulos and Powell said appeals are almost certain. Until then, a sentencing date of Sept. 28 has been set by Senior U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo.

SCRANTON CITY COUNCIL

By RICH HOWELLS rhowells@golackawanna.com

Joined by his fellow Minooka residents, Finnerty presented council with a petition signed by 522 neighbors that listed increased traffic flow, road capacity and deterioration, water runoff, school capacity, greater criminal activity, safety concerns, and decreased property values as examples of issues they believe would occur if the developer’s plans were to go through. Council also continues to support the zoning change, which they feel best represents the interests of the residents they spoke to over the last several weeks. When reached for comment on Monday, Vice President and PrincipaloftheDelawareValleyDevelopment Co. Glenn Worgan said thathefeltthemindsofbothcouncil and the neighborhood association “were already made up” beforehewasabletopresenthiscase to them. “I’m from out of town, and I was trying to do something in town. Being an outsider, I wasn’t too ter-

ribly surprised. I’m a little disappointed because I think they’re making the wrong decision,” Worgan said. After speaking with members of the association, he said there was“nodoubt”thatthiswasabout the income of potential residents of the development, not the betterment of the area. Worgan said that he has the support of both Mayor Chris Doherty and the city’s Office of Economic and Community Development. “TheOECDisinthebusinessof providing affordable housing and facilitating the development and management of good, affordable housing…What I’m proposing is the kind of development they would generally support. I think what we’re seeing from the neighborhood group is just case of NIMBY, ‘Not In My Back Yard.’ “They’re just opposed to it, and they obviously have some political connections and exercised them. I think they’re improperly trying to change the zoning of the

site,” he argued. Worgan stressed that he “sincerely and genuinely” believes thattheprojectwouldbe“arealasset” to the community. “There are misconceptions and people trying to discredit our conceptandouridea.There’sthismisunderstanding that what we’re proposingishousingoflastresort, that we’re going to create a slum and not manage it and it’s going to be public housing and we’re going to import people from the big city. I think there’s an undercurrent of racism from what I’m hearing from people,” he continued. “The fact of the matter is that this is going to be housing of choice. It’s housing for people that work, people that do not have a lot of money but they have to get up every day and go to work and pay the rent just like people with more money.” Worgan added that his Hockessin, Del.-based company is “exploring options right now,” which he said include legal options.

SCRANTON – City Council tabled controversial legislation on Tuesday that could change the zoning of a parcel of land in Minooka where a developer hopes to build low-income housing. Introduced unanimously last week, it was tabled after small changes were made to the legislation. City solicitor Boyd Hughes, who worked with city planner Don King to develop the legislation, said that following any modification,“howeverslight,”itmust be sent back to the Lackawanna County Regional Planning Commission and Scranton Planning Commission for their review and recommendations. Any significant change would require another public hearing, such as the one held earlier this month. Drafted at the request of the Minooka Neighborhood Association, the legislation would rezone a 17-acre plot located near

the 100 to 200 block of Davis Street that is currently zoned as a C-N, or a commercial neighborhoodarea,toanR-1A,oramedium to low density residential district. The zoning change would effectively prevent the construction of a proposed 76-unit, low-income housing development on the property. Hughes told council that the commissions have 30 days to respondandthatcouncilcanputthe legislation back on the agenda as soon as they answer. He added that the Delaware Valley Development Co., the developer and equitable owner of the property, does not have any application pending on their proposed development. John Finnerty, president of the Minooka Neighborhood Association, told council at a public hearing on June 7 that residents are overwhelmingly against the development, as the surrounding area is primarily made up of singlefamily homes and they wish to maintain that.

Sewer Authority bashed; Rogan reiterates privatization By RICH HOWELLS rhowells@golackawanna.com

icized the Scranton Sewer Authority on Tuesday for a resolution the authority board passed last month, approving a 47 percent preliminary rate increase for commercial and residential users, effective April 1. In response to complaints from city residents, Evans said that council is in the process of registering a complaint with the state Public Utility Commission and will be requesting a public hearing with the PUC on the rate increases. Other authority issues addressed Taking issue with another authority later in the meeting, Evans voted against legislation to appoint Danny Davis to the Scranton Recreation Authority, along with Councilman Jack Loscombe. The legislation passed with a 3-2 vote. “My concern is certainly not with Mr. Davis. My concern is the Scranton Recreation Authority itself, and the Scranton Recreation Authority has acted, for many years now, against the wishes of the people of the city of Scranton. It has acted independently of the council of the city of Scranton,” Evans explained.

“I do believe it should be disbanded.” Rogan agreed, but voted for the appointment, as he didn’t believe in punishing someone for “the sins of their predecessors.” “I just can’t continue to appoint respectful individuals to that authority when the actions of the authority would be harming the residents of the city and the children of the city of Scranton,” Evans responded. “All the authorities in this city have gone unreined for too long. I don’t know we started, but we do have to start somewhere, and they have to start working for the public they serve, not for certain masters they served,” Loscombe agreed. “I don’t think that continuing to make appointments solves the problem. In fact, it’s perpetrating the unaccountable power and autonomy of city authorities.” Earlier this month, council chose not to challenge the appointment of former city business administrator Stu Renda to the Scranton Sewer Authority, approving his appointment with a 3-1 vote. McGoff was absent and Rogan dissented, citing Renda’s “lackluster record.”

SCRANTON – The Scranton Sewer Authority came under fire again by City Council on Tuesday, this time for the alleged firing of an employee for the private use of city equipment and recent rate increases. Council Vice President Pat Rogan said that employees of the authority informed him of the incident, in which an employee allegedly used city equipment for private construction work at a residence in the city. A supervisor was also purportedly suspended, but Rogan has yet to confirm the story or the employees involved with the authority officially. He requested the information via letter. The Scranton Sewer Authority’s executive director, Eugene Barrett, did not return several requests for comment, and a secretary at the authority said that issues involving personnel are “private matters.” “I will be the first one to say that’s completely unacceptable that government property is being used on a private residence by, I believe, a contractor. I do believe someone was fired over the incident,

but it really does make me wonder what type of security that’s going on down at the Scranton Sewer Authority,” Rogan said. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – now is the time to sell the Scranton Sewer Authority. Put it in private hands…Government shouldn’t be in the sewer business. There are a lot of businesses we shouldn’t be in.” Rogan first suggested in April that the city consider privatization of the authority and the Department of Public Works, accusing city administration of filling the departments with “crony hires.” He said on Tuesday that at least 20 employees were hired under Mayor Chris Doherty. “The Sewer Authority is the fat of the government, along with a few other departments that I’ve mentioned often during meetings,” Rogan added. Councilman Bob McGoff said in April that privatization would likely be years away, if at all possible. Rogan felt that efficiency surveys should still be conducted and the city should start discussing its future options now. Council President Janet Evans also crit-

Sitting commissioners McMillan named new warden address controversy

SCRANTON – Less than 24 hours after Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak was found guilty in federal court of conspiracy, bribery, extortion, and other corruption charges, remaining majority commissioners Corey O’Brien and Mike Washo addressed how they would prevent further corruption in county government, particularly in the hiring of vendors, going forward. After reading Munchak’s letter of resignation, O’Brien referred to the actions of Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro as the “county’s past,” not the present or future. “Our administration’s review, which began in 2008, of all county policies, procedures, and controls continues. This review has and will continue to include input from the county solicitor, general council for litigation, ethics council, county controller, and the professional staff,” O’Brien said. “We will continue to implement improvements to county policies, procedures, and controls as issues arise. I want to reassure the public that we will take all necessary steps within our power to prevent this behavior from repeating itself.” Washo explained that the debt accumulated from a “spending spree” in 2003 until 2006 will last long after this administration, saying that his protests as a minority commissioner during Munchak and Cordaro’s tenure were not enough to prevent their wasteful spending. “I walk into that purchasing office on a regular basis and say, ‘How much money have we saved today?’ not ‘Who’s getting the work?’ This is important because over $120 million of indebtedness was accumulated during the previous four-year period. I’m not here to castigate anyone, but taxpayers have to know,” Washo said.

“It’s the taxpayers who are going to feel the pain of that, some of that debt over the next 30 years. We have to be conscious of it. That’s a challenge ahead. There are many things this county won’t be able to do on behalf of its people that are good things for possibly a generation as a result of that debt.” After the meeting, O’Brien said that he and Washo took “a number of measures” to prevent further corruption since their arrival as majority commissioners in 2008. There is now a qualification-based selection process for county vendors, he noted, with no preferred vendor list. All requests for proposals are posted online and anyone can fill out an application to be considered for government jobs. “I can tell you that we consistently review policies, procedures, and controls in Lackawanna County, and based on the evidence presented in the finds of the jury, we’ll continue to review that process, and any changes that we can make, we’ll make,” he said. “We’re not going to jump to conclusions less than 24 hours after a jury verdict. That would be imprudent on our part. We need to review it all and make decisions that are not snap judgments.” He added that Attorney David Fallk, the county’s ethics counsel, attended the nearly every day of the three-week trial and will be advising the commissions on how they can prevent further issues. O’Brien said he did not know if any of the companies named during the trial were still working for the county. Washo said they also put a stop to the “lavish” gifts being given to commissioners by businesses and others involved with the county. “There isn’t anything that we need to do today,” Washo said. “There isn’t anything that we learned in the courts where there was some deficiency that needed to be addressed today or tomorrow or next week.”

SCRANTON – After a brief executive session on Wednesday, the Lackawanna County Prison Board announced their decision to appoint Robert McMillan as the new permanent warden. Commissioner Corey O’Brien said that out of 27 applicants, a panel narrowed it to 11 for interviews. Out of those, four candidates were chosen for a second round of interviews, and then discussions began with McMillan to negotiate his contract. Interim Warden Vincent Mooney called the interviews “intense,” during which “tough questions” were asked of the applicants. The appointment was approved unanimously by the prison board, and again later that day by the county commissioners. The salary board also approved an increase in the warden’s salary, from $71,253 to $85,000. McMillan is set to begin work on Monday, although Mooney will stay on for two weeks to ease the transition period. “We have an opportunity to change Lackawanna County Prison, and I think the right man has been selected,” Mooney said. “One of the things I liked about him was the fact that he has a military background. He served in the United States Navy, was a member of the presidential honor guard, and had White House

and top security clearances,” Commissioner Mike Washo said. “He comes to us someone we never knew McMillan anything about when he arrived other than what we read on paper…He has a confidence that I think is necessary to make this prison the kind of prison that we all want it to be.”

Lifetime of experience Serving as Deputy Superintendent 2 at SCI Coal Township, McMillan was the Deputy for Centralized Services and responsible for the overall operation of food service, inmate programs, health care, education, inmate employment, psychological services, drug and alcohol programs, recreational activities, volunteer services, and inmate records, according to his resume. In addition, he served as Acting Superintendent when needed. “I believe in being very vigilant. I believe in being there in all hours of the day and night. I lead by example. I’m a doer,” McMillan told Go Lackawanna on Wednesday. Serving in the U.S. Navy from 1975 until 1979, the now 54-yearold Hunlock Creek resident became a member of the Presidential Honor Guard and gained over

21years of experience working in the Department of Corrections. “I’ve been a management-level employee for over 16 years. I do have an extensive labor relation background. I do have an extensive security background. I was a training lieutenant, and I understand the importance of training. I’ve supervised both sides – facilities management and centralized services,” McMillan said. McMillan believes his greatest challenges in his new position will be learning the physical layout of the facility, getting to know the staff, learning what the prison’s problems are, and examining the prison’s policies to see “what needs to be rewritten.” “I review everything. I look at staffing levels, I look at making sure shifts are balanced, the needs of the facility like camera coverage and camera placements, and security practices. It’s all a part of what you should be looking at on a daily basis,” he said, adding that he would also watch overtime. “Myfirstthingistogoinanddo an assessment of the prison itself, see what’s going, take a close evaluation of it, look at the budgetary issues, find the security issues. I’m coming in with a fresh set of eyes, fresh set of views. I’m sure Warden Mooney did an outstanding job in moving forward and beginning the process. Now it’s just a matter of keeping it up.”

Abington approves budget, holds taxes By DON McGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT - The Abington Heights School Board approved a budget of $43,399,674 for the 2011-12 school year during its monthly meeting held on Wednesday, June 22. Despite the discussion of a tax increase earlier this year, the approved budget has a zero percent mill tax increase, with the mill rate remaining at 117.35. Members were still forced to make a number of cuts. The district refrained from filling 12 teaching positions left vacant by retirement, which led to the elimination of the Latin program, elementary computer

instruction, librarians in the high school and middle school, and transitional first grade. The transitional first grade class has been offered to students in the Abington Heights School District who are believed to need another year of instruction before entering first grade after completing kindergarten. Several members of the community, many of whom had children that participated in the class, spoke against the cuts during Wednesday’s meeting. “It was a decision we struggled with to put him in transition,” parent Cathy Capwell said of her son. “He’ll be in fourth grade this year, and he was fortunate enough to be in transition.” Retired Abington Heights

teacher Tom Brogan also spoke on behalf of the program. He questioned the affect the cut will have not only on the students who would have attended the transitional first grade, along with their teachers and classmates. “It’s a program that works and you’re going to hurt our kids by getting rid of it,” said Brogan. Superintendent Michael Mahon didn’t argue with the quality of the program but said that he believes the students who would have been enrolled in the transitional class next year will be able to succeed in first grade. The Abington Heights School Board will meet again on Wednesday, July 20.

SCRANTON – After a few adjustments, a billboard advertisement featuring a half-naked man will be seen alongside two area highways. According to a press release issued by WyckWyre.com, the original advertisement showed a bare-chested man from the neck down standing in front of a representation of an American flag and read: “Congressman, looking for a new job? Go to WyckWyre.com.” The Scranton office of Lamar Advertising Company, based in Baton Rouge, La., hesitated to run the ad, saying it disrespected the flag. “When we looked at the first ad we felt it was kind of risqué and was disrespectful of the American flag,” said Tom Donohue, general manager at Lamar’s Scranton office. “We feel the

Agency locks up 140 for good cause

By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

If you or a loved one is afflicted with a neuromuscular disease, contact the Scranton offices of the Muscular Dystrophy Association at (570) 2342450 or Scranton@mdausa.org. Local offices are located at 366 N. Main St., Taylor. The annual MDA telethon is set for Sept. 4, from 6 to 9 p.m., on WNEP.

Dan Duffy was working the phones after being the first person locked up this year. “If I can use my position for something good, why not do it? I’m going to take an hour out of my day and possibly raise a lot of money from someone who is a lot less fortunate than us,” he said. Duffy actually worked for almost two hours after his 10 a.m. “arraignment” to raise $1,032 for the local branch of the MDA. One hundred forty people were locked up Wednesday at the third consecutive event held at Kildares, 119 Jefferson Ave., Scranton. Last year, $25,000 was raised, according

to Heather Logie-Schield, executive director of the Scranton chapter of MDA. Fundraising totals for the 2011 effort were not available at press time. Funds raised go towards finding cures for 43 neuromuscular diseases and support services for existing clients affected by those diseases. Those services include flu shots, clinics, and a loan closet where clients can borrow equipment from power scooters to walkers. “What a lot of these people are doing is thinking about sending kids to summer camp,” Logie-Schield said. The camp, held outside of Lansdale, is a one-week camp provided free to children affected with muscular dystrophy. The camp has a 1:1 counselor-tocamper ratio, and $3,000 can send a group of four children. Donations of $100 can fund a support group session, and $30 can offset a flu shot. “No matter what level they’re fundraising, they are helping in some manner,” Logie-Schield said.

SCRANTON – Business owners, office workers, and even Scranton’s police chief were locked up Wednesday, and their bail will help locals affected by a number of neuromuscular diseases. One by one, “Judge” Christopher Arnone, an attorney with offices in Scranton and Jefferson Township, dressed community leaders in their prison stripes before they made phone calls to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Arnone said he became involved with MDA 12 years ago and helped found the group’s Black and Blue Ball. When attending a summer camp years ago, he and WNEP personality Don Jacobs asked an attendee what activity she enjoyed most. “She said she liked swimming the best,” Arnone recalled. “She told me, ‘When I’m in the water, I can walk like normal kids.’ I’ve been hooked ever since.” Early Wednesday morning, Chief

He offered some advice for people considering applying. “We are looking for people who want to shine and who will want to stay on for an extended period of time, maybe one or two years and even people who want to become potential managers,” Lambert said. “It doesn’t matter if you have experience in this business or not. What matters is your drive and your desire to succeed.” The Scranton Sonic is looking for 85 staff members, including 20 roller-skating car hops.

New K9 finds suspects on third day By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON – The fifth member of the Scranton Police Department with four legs was introduced last week, and he’s already making an impact. Ecko, the department’s new K9, was unveiled Saturday, June 18. Officer Kyle Kemp is the newest officer to join the K9 division, and his partner shows that a well-established department can introduce some new tricks. The 3-year-old German Shepherd is known as a passive indicator, according to Chief Dan Duffy. “He doesn’t scratch when he indicates on a detection of narcotics. He basically gives a passive response where he’ll sit down, and Officer Kemp, the handler, is trained to understand that,” Duffy said. It allows Kemp to perform walk-arounds of people, not just vehicles, to search for narcotics. On June 17, his third day on the job, Ecko helped in finding his first drug suspects at a convenient market on the corner of Meadow Avenue and River

Street. Two were charged for possession of a controlled substance and a small amount of marijuana, Kemp said. Ecko was introduced at the new West Side Precinct at the corner of Jackson Street and North Bromley Avenue. The precinct is home to the juvenile division and the K9 unit. Offi-

cers will use grassy areas of the adjoining park to conduct training exercises. Kemp, an officer in Scranton for more than eight years, has had Ecko for about two months and said he has already bonded with his new partner. “You’re personally responsible for taking the dog to the next

level (through on- and off-duty training),” Kemp said. “I really believe that they’re smarter than we are.” Duffy said the purchase of a new dog was possible through a 5K K9 run held in 2010 that raised $12,000. The run moves downtown on Saturday, Sept. 24.

How and when to stock up coupons People avoid couponing due to the misconception that it requires too much time or couponing is too much work. I often wonder how people make ends meet in today’s economy without using coupons. Even if you aren’t using coupons, there are some simple tips that you can follow to help save on everyday items. First, develop a monthly grocery budget and stick to it. Depending on your family size, this budget will vary. For my family of four, our budget is $50 a week that includes both grocery store and drug store items. This may require some stock piling on certain items to keep to your budget. In no way, shape or form am I suggesting that you go extreme and start stockpiling unnecessary items. Even if you choose three items to stockpile, that will help save you money for the month. It takes time to build a stockpile, but buying items when they are on sale is a great way to start. For example, I started my stockpile with cereal because that was one item

that could save money in the long run. Have you seen the price of cereal without coupons or a deal? It’s not something that you want to have in your cart every week.

After you develop a budget, you want to determine a price per item. It’s important to recognize that every item in you purchase fluctuates in price, and every item reaches a high point and low point. Buy it at the low point. Using the example above, I like to pay $1 per box of cereal. When cereal is on sale for four for $8, that’s a great deal, but you can still chop the price in half. You should also be aware of meat prices and learn when the low points of meat sales are active. If you notice that the best price for chicken is $1.69 per pound, then that is the time that you should stock up and make room in the freezer. Sales usually have a cycle of between eight and 12 weeks. Take note of the sale cycles in your favorite store. Although this may seem like work in the beginning, you’ll soon develop an instinct that you need to run to the drugstore for $.99 toothpaste deals that you can match with a $1 off coupon. Finally, get organized! Make a list when browsing all weekly circular ads and create a list for each store. Find the best deals with coupons, sales and low point prices for necessary items. And, keep to the list as much as possible.

MSN says Scranton is the place to ‘start over’ By RICH HOWELLS rhowells@golackawanna.com

“In the last four years, we’ve made these lists. Years ago, we used to make the bad lists. It’s nice that we keep trending upward,” Doherty said. Last year, the Pennsylvania Economy League projected Scranton’s debt to rise to over $5.6 million by 2013, and while the city has remained in distressed status under state Act 47 since 1992, the mayor cited the recent construction of new apartment complexes and the Commonwealth Medical College as examples of the city’s continued rejuvenation. “I think we have a high quality of life here. We have nice neigh-

borhoods, low crime, a great educational system, and our downtown is growing. People are moving into our downtown, particularly young people, and it’s not expensive,” he explained. Austin Burke, president of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, named numerous Chamber-led projects that have contributed to the area’s “growth and development” in a June 20 press release. “This recognition illustrates what we have known all along – that Scranton is scoring high when it comes to job prospects

and affordable housing,” Burke said in the release. Additionally, Maureen Edwards, president of the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS, found it “very gratifying” for the area to be recognized as one of the 10 best cities to relocate to. “The housing market in the area has an active inventory along with very affordable pricing. Financing options offer various choices for buyers along with numerous city and government housing programs. Interest rates are very affordable. It is a great time to buy,” Edwards said in an e-mail interview.

NEWS

In an article published earlier this month, MSN Real Estate ranked Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as number one in a list of the “10 Best Places to Start Over.” The author of the article, Melinda Fulmer, wrote that the city “has turned itself around” after the loss of both jobs and half its population over the last several decades, allowing people affected by the economic downturn a place to move and rebuild. “After spending hundreds of millions of dollars on development projects, the city now has a more diversified base of health-

services, education, tourism, and technology jobs. And with a new medical college in place, it is trying to attract more bioscience companies. The city also is working to spruce up its downtown to retain younger residents who come here for college,” Fulmer wrote. Mayor Chris Doherty wasn’t surprised by the ranking, as the city has also been featured in Money Magazine’s “10 Fastest Growing Real Estate Markets,” Forbes’ “Fastest-Recovering Cities,” and Business Week’s “Best Places to Raise Kids” and “Best Places to Start Over” since he took office.

Electric anniversary for city On Sunday, June 19, members of the 125th Anniversary Committee kicked off what will be a summer long commemoration of the 125th Anniversary of Scranton’s first Electric Trolley. Nearly 100 people turned out at Lackawanna County’s Electric City Trolley Museum to mark the occasion where Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty and Commissioner Mike Washo each presented proclamations to honor this significant milestone. Event Co-Chair David Biles prepared an excellent history entitled “From Horse Cars to Buses: A Look Back at Scranton’s City Transit History,” which documents the city’s impressive role in establishing the country’s first successful commercially viable electric street car system. On March 23, 1865 Hon. A.B. Dunning, David R. Randall, George Tracy, A. Bennett, and Samuel Raub obtained a charter and formed a company to build the first horse powered street railway. The company became known as the People’s Street railway and consisted of a horse car operating each way once every hour connecting Scranton and the surrounding areas of Hyde Park, Providence and Dunmore. The following year, a second horse railway was built running from Franklin Avenue through downtown Scranton to Sanderson Avenue in Green Ridge. The horse car railway was a great improvement in mobility but had limitations in that schedules were very sporadic with no regular stops, and the cars were small with limited seating. In 1872, a major crisis hit most horse car railways in the Eastern United States when a disease killed thousands of horses and mules. The Scranton horse car service was shut down until the disease had run its course. In 1886, Edward B. Sturges, a Scranton businessman, with Col. George Sanderson and several other local partners, organized the Scranton Subur-

MINING HISTORY ROBERT SAVAKINUS ban Railway Company. Sturges, president of this new company, believed that electricity would become the future power for public transit. He traveled major American cities where electricity had been tried to power streetcars but found none in regular public operation. After reviewing several installations, Sturges was most impressed with the work of Charles J. Van DePoele and contracted with his Chicagobased company to construct the Green Ridge Suburban line. He then placed an order with the Pullman Car Company of Chicago to manufacture cars for the new Scranton Suburban Railway Company. Construction began on July 6, 1886 with the grading of the center of streets along the route. By mid-November the line was completed and the first ride was offered on November 29 with Van DePoele at the controls. Everything ran very smoothly until Van DePoele advanced the speed as it crossed Wyoming Avenue on Spruce Street and by the time it got to Adams Avenues, there was a blowout and the ride ended. Upon examination of the motor car, it was discovered that a nail was picked up during transit and blamed for the short circuit. However, all was repaired for the next day’s ride, and on November 30, car No. 4 completed its first successful round trip to Green Ridge. The operation over the entire line was considered a complete triumph and the Scranton Suburban Railway Company became the world’s first commercially viable electric streetcar operation. In its almost seven decades of existence, it had 183 trolley cars, over 100 miles of track, and carried over 33 million passengers, earning the city of Scranton its well known moniker - the Electric City.

In fact, Scranton’s electric street car was not just the first successful street car to carry passengers. It was also the longest operating car in the United States. Mayor Chris Doherty, who had just returned from a mayoral conference in Israel, was elated to join a celebration that represented Scranton’s

history in such a positive light. “It’s two different worlds (Israel and the U.S.), but they both share pride and vibrant history.” Throughout the rest of the year, the Trolley Museum will be open to all guests. Films about trolleys will be shown, and photo displays and a children’s play room are all available to visitors. November 30 marks the date that the first trolley car carried passengers on a complete, successful trip, and residents can experience some of that excitement all year. Trips to see the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees at PNC Field are just one part of the updated services available. The next run is Sunday, July 10, when the Yankees play the Rochester Red Wings, at 1:05 p.m. The trolley will depart at 12:15 p.m. from the Steamtown Platform.

SCRANTON – Officials of the Scranton Cultural Center gathered Monday, June 20, to present their 2011-12 season, one promised to be bigger and better than previous years. John Cardone announced the array of fresheventsandthereturnofsometime-tested favorites. Most of the events planned for this season are expected to be both entertaining and educational to the public. One returning attraction will be the second annual Family Day in September. The family-oriented event will include workshops for all ages, free prize drawings and tours. The “Up & Coming Comedy” series returns offering rising comedians the chance to take the stage and share some laughs with

audiences inside Shopland Hall. As October rolls around, the center will celebrate Halloween with the Society of Paranormal Research and Investigation. Volunteers from the public may join in this event that will use state of the art equipment for paranormal research and haunted tours throughout the Masonic Temple. “‘The View’ with a Scranton Attitude” returns in January 2012, allowing local celebrities and community leaders to have discussions and answer questions from the crowd. The popular post-St. Patrick’s Day Parade party is also back with Irish step dancers, bagpipers and live music from Kilrush.

Buying your first new computer or are you tired of your old one? Scared of the daunting task of selecting a new one? Nowadays the choices are endless, and the tough part is getting the most for your money. When friends and relatives ask me to help them buy a new computer, the first two questions I ask are: What is it going to be used for? And what is the most you want to spend on it? Depending on the answer they give me, I would take in consideration the level of expertise the person has and the room they have for the system. Here are a few scenarios that will hopefully help you find the best system for you..

Since he is not going to be doing anything that would demand much power, Windows 7 Home Edition with a low- to mid-range CPU will work for him such as the AMD Athlon II X2 or an Intel Core i3 with less than four GB of RAM and 250 GB of hard drive space.

a feud with a snotty Formula 1 champ (John Turturro, doing his broadest-funniest Italian accent), Mater is mistaken for a fallen American agent and sucked into intrigues with the Brits. “You obviously have plenty of experience in the field,” McMissile observes. “Well, I do live right next to one,” Mater drawls back. Somebody is plotting to ruin this racing series, and at every

turn, infamously ugly “lemons” from the automotive past (AMC Gremlins and Pacers, Yugos called “Hugos” here) are car-napping our heroes and causing wrecks in “Tow-kyo,” Italy and London. What might their motives be, and who could be their boss? Bad guys must be foiled, Mater must figure out where his competence lies, and Lightning has to realize that “Whoever finds a friend, finds a treasure.” Vintage Pixar messages. And as in the first “Cars,” “Cars 2” is jammed with homages to vintage motoring — from Mini Coopers to Fiats, a Rolls Royce to a NASCAR Monte Carlo. This is a cartoon for the “Top Gear” dad to drag the kids to. But unlike the first “Cars,” the kids won’t mind this time. This Pixar product is better than the toys they sell along with it.

SPORTS

y Pixar’s own standards, “Cars,” the scenic animated amble on the backroads of the Roadrunner’s desert Southwest, was the company’s worst film. Laugh-starved and lacking much in the line of action, it was a triumph of toy sales and product tie-in (NASCAR) over motion picture. “Cars 2” overcompensates for those “get off the fast track” midlife-crisis musings but does so in an often funny and action-packed “James Bond goes racing” comedy. They turn more of the story over to the comic relief, the dopey tow truck Tow Mater, and get a sillier, more kid-friendly movie out of it.

In a Bond-style “opening gambit,” we see a scheme involving deep-sea oil rigs, a mystery pursued by Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Agent Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) drags the inexperienced Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer, Caine’s “Harry Brown” co-star) along on the chase. Mater (amusingly voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) is still in Radiator Springs, longing for those occasional visits from his stock-car-racer pal, Lightning McQueen. He’s a drawling hick of an embarrassment to McQueen (Owen Wilson), but at least he goads the Piston Cup champ into entering a world grand-prix race series sponsored by Sir Miles Axlerod (Eddie Izzard), who is promoting his new alternative fuel “Allinol.” But as McQueen and his road crew get into the racing and into

sympathies from the wronged but insufferably self-righteous do-gooder to her nemesis, who is catty and calculating but not quite heartless or psychotic. Director Jake Kasdan (“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story”) has pulled together a fine, kooky supporting cast. Jason Segel plays a gym teacher who just might unclog the stopped-up septic tank of Elizabeth’s heart; if you can’t see the ending from 12 blocks away, you will have to stay after class. “Bad Teacher” is Diaz’s show, however, and she contributes a performance that doesn’t feel like it came from the stock comedy character catalog.

Hughes had actually eaten one time at a vegan res-

“I grew up in a family of meat eaters. It was in 1997 that I made the commitment to becoming a vegan,” he said. Many of the customers at Eden are not necessarily vegan or vegetarian, so the business uses traditional terms. A majority of their customers are making the switch for health reasons. There is not a single morsel of cholesterol to be found in any items on the rather large menu boasted at Eden. Some regulars are vegan for ethical reasons, as is Pilosi. What you will not find on the menu, however, is an agenda. Workers don’t push the vegan lifestyle on their customers. “I am more than happy to answer any questions patrons ask about the lifestyle, and I get quite a few people asking about the lifestyle, but we never push it on anyone,” said Pilosi. So what did three meat eating males think of the choles-

turkey club as my main dish. After all, I have a big appetite. I loved it. I actually thought that the turkey club was the real deal. I still can’t understand how what I just finished eating was not turkey. When I normally order a turkey club, as funny as it sounds, I remove the bacon as I’m normally not a fan. Well, I left the entire sandwich intact and ate the baconless bacon right along with the turkey club. The vegetables were also very fresh and the bread, which is bought locally, was great. The entire meal was aces, and it was good for me. No fat, no cholesterol and great taste. I felt like the three of us were eating at a backyard barbeque, sans meat. When I bring my wife, Jessica, and our two boys, Jack and Anthony, to the city for a fireworks display this week, I’m sure to impress them and earn a few brownie points by taking them to Eden for a healthy, delicious meal.

Have you ever been out to eat and had a sampler that was so good, you wondered if you would be able to save room for the main course? Turkey, steak, barbeque and buffalo chicken, some veggies, tuna and hummus - now that’s a sampler worth bragging about! I brought the sampler from Eden – A Vegan Café, 344 Adams Ave., Scranton back to the Go Lackawanna office and shared it with my colleagues. There were three of us, and although we ate all that was mentioned in the samples, we actually ate no meat at all. Eden is a 100 percent vegetarian and vegan restaurant, meaning all products are meat and dairy free. How then, did we eat steak, turkey, and two variations of chicken? Eden uses traditional names, like steak, chicken, and so on. Owner Christian Pilosi even admits to enjoying the taste of meat.

OUR OPINION

Reaction to verdict hypocritical

SPARE US the public figures who deny corruption charges, proclaim eagerness to be heard by a jury of their peers, then reject the judgment of those peers. Spare us the A.J. Munchaks and Robert Cordaros of the world. Both men expressed surprise that a jury found them guilty on multiple charges. Former Lackawanna County Commissioner Cordaro thought it inconceivable jurors would trust the word of two other witnesses over his own. “They believed Don Kalina and Al Hughes over A.J. and I, and I’m really shocked by that fact,” he said. Munchak - a sitting Lackawanna County Commissioner until his midnight resignation the day after his conviction – was confounded to the point of contradiction. “I believe in the jury system, but I just can’t believe that they’d believe him over me,” Munchak said of Kalina. Pre-trial, Munchak and Cordaro embraced this method of proving guilt or innocence with gusto. Their confidence bordered on cockiness. Frankly, the inability to foresee the possibility of losing speaks to their unfitness for public office. Their disbelief in the verdict after demanding a trial is, in one way, worse than the arrogance of former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella. At least Ciavarella didn’t reject the jury’s guilty ruling (though he did appeal). Heck, he bizarrely declared victory. Munchak and Cordaro, by contrast, spoke as though they felt a jury should have accepted their every utterance as The Word from heaven itself. The system is imperfect. Innocents are sometimes convicted; guilty are sometimes set free. But there is good reason we abide by the notion of presenting our case to our equals and not to some elite cadre of arbiters. History is littered with the abuses of such power. Public trial by jury works better than any other system the world has tried. Cordaro and Munchak have ample opportunity to prove the verdict wrong through appeal. What they do not have is any logical or moral basis to question the jury’s judgment after insisting upon it. Quite literally, they got what they asked for.

TRIAL OF ROBERT CORD

Convicted Munchak resig

By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON – With a “heavy heart,” convicted Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak tendered his resignation in a letter to fellow Commissioners Corey O’Brien and Mike Washo that was read at their 11 a.m. meeting Wednesday. Munchak was found guilty of conspiracy to commit theft of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, conspiracy to commit extortion under color of right, extortion under color of right, subscribing and filing a materially false tax return and tax evasion by a jury of six men and six women in federal court on Tuesday. The letter, dated June 22, said his resignation would be effective at midnight Wednesday. The Lackawanna County Home Rule Charter states that “any elected officer shall forfeit their office… upon conviction in a court of record of competent jurisdiction of any criminal offense where the maximum sentence shall be 5 years imprisonment or more.”

At a maximum, Munchak faces up to 93 years and $2 million in fines for his crimes. Although his legal team is considering an appeal, “it is in the best interests of the taxpayers that I take this action immediately,” Munchak wrote. “The jury’s verdicts begin to bring closure to a difficult period in the history of Lackawanna County government,” O’Brien said. “The actions described in this trial were our county’s past. They are not our county’s present, and they will not define our county’s future.” “The good old days are over, and anyone wishing to bring those days back will be thwarted at every turn.” Washo said Tuesday was a “miserable evening” and that citizens are tired of good intentions without actions to support them. “Cleaning up pigeon dung is not a professional service. I said that from that seat over there at least 30 times over a two year period,” Washo said, referring to the lucrative contract Munchak and former commissioner Robert Cordaro gave to Alicon Environmental for the clean-up of such waste from the rafters of the Lacka-

Verdict will create caution, professor says By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

SCRANTON – The guilty verdict on public corruption charges against resigned Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro shows that public officials will be held accountable for their actions in office. That can mean good things for residents of Lackawanna County, along with some potential changes to the political scene, according to Keystone College Associate Professor of political science Jeff Brauer, of Dalton. “Inorderfordemocracytowork,youneed to have a system in place to make sure that these elected officials are held accountable, and we do have a lot of those checks in places. This is one great example of it,” Brauer said Wednesday, one day after Cordaro was convicted of 18 counts including extortion and racketeering and Munchak was found guilty of eight counts including tax fraud

and bribery. Changes predicted Following Tuesday’s verdict, Brauer believes more women will seek elected office and find success in the political Brauer arena. He cited the near political upset of Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien by candidate Elizabeth Randol in the May 2011primary election as a key example. “Women are seen as not being part of the old boys network…They’re going to become strong candidates in Northeastern Pennsylvania.” It may also have implications on the form of county government Lackawanna County uses. While the commissioner style of government is typical in about half of the counties across the nation, according to Brauer, it is also “probably the most prone to be corrupt

than any other type of government in the United States.” That’s because of the lack of separation between the executive and legislative branches of government. “A lot of this stuff would have never happened if you had a separate legislative branch versus an executive branch,” he said. InLuzerneCounty,ahomeruletransition committee is working to complete their recommendations on the new form of government to the11county council members who will be elected in November. Voters opted for the change following a number of public corruption cases there that are ongoing. “Being our neighboring county, we’re definitely going to watch and see what happens andseeiftheycancleanupsomeofthemess down there,” Brauer said.

SCRANTON – The resignation of convicted Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak effective at midnight on June 22 left the Lackawanna County Republican Party with the important task of choosing three nominees to fill the vacancy. According to the Lackawanna County Home Rule Charter, “the executive committee of the political party of the person elected to the office in question shall submit a list of three persons to the judges of the court and bank within five days of the vacancy. The court shall appoint one of the three persons recommended to temporarily fill the vacancy.” Lackawanna County Republican Party Chairman Lance Stange, Jr., said five minutes after the guilty verdict was handed down against Munchak and former commissioner Robert Cordaro, his phone rang consistently for “about three or four hours.” The Republican Party received 27 applications and conducted interviews with 18 potential candidates at the Ramada Clarks Sum-

mit Hotel, 820 Northern Blvd., S. Abington Twp., on Saturday, June 25. Jermyn Mayor Bruce Smallacombe, South Abington Township Auditor and current commissioner candidate Bill Jones, and Scranton entrepreneur Steven Scarpetta emerged as the top three nominees. Notably missing from the interviews was Republican commissioner candidate Pat O’Malley, the top vote recipient on the GOP side in the May primary election. He said party leaders suggested he submit his name. “I just feel in my own heart that I would like to be able to run for the office. I want to be elected to the office,” O’Malley, the vice president of the Scranton School Board whose term ends in December, said on Thursday. O’Malley cited a variety of unfinished business on the school board as a major reason for completing his term. The district recently closed two elementary schools, will open another in August, and must decide the fate of another building that was discovered to have high levels of mold in October 2010.

He felt that the position should be given to someone who is not already seeking the office through the electoral process. The nominees’ names will be turned over Monday to the Court of Common Pleas, according to Stange. “I’m sure the court sees the need for a minority commissioner,” he said, predicting that the process will continue to move in a “timely manner.” Stange said earlier in the week that he does not believe the conviction of the first Republican majority commissioners in nearly 20 years will affect the outcome of the November general election. “The Republican Party is against corruption,” Stange said. “I think it’s unfair to paint everyone with a broad brush based on the actions of two individuals out of the 213,000 people in Lackawanna County. “I don’t believe it’s a problem with a particular political party. It’s a problem of power. For too long, too much power has been placed in the hands of too few people.”

Expert: Corruption breeds battle of ethics, economics Intimidation of govt. By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES chughes@golackawanna.com

“The public really isn’t all that outraged over the Cordaro/Munchak scandal. It’s just another day in Lackawanna County,” he said. “The irony is that we know it’s corrupt, but we really don’t care.” The costs of accepting a corrupt culture are “immediate and financial,” Schmidt said. “We are strapped with millions upon millions of dollars of debt. All of those projects that Cordaro grafted and other politicians are grafting on are paid for by the taxpayers. It’s compounding the problem of deficits, of structural red ink, but it’s also tarnishing the area,” he said. While building projects bring employment opportunities, the area is left with a reputation for its renowned levels of sometimes unsavory decisions. The choice, according to Schmidt, is whether to be ethical or profitable. “It may not even be desirable to change because you would have to fundamentally alter the economy,” Schmidt said. “CorSee CORRUPT, Page 30

SCRANTON — Scranton police are currently investigating a vandalism incident linked to a key government witness in the trial of Robert Cordaro and A.J. Munchak. According to Scranton Police Lt. Martin Crofton, officers were called to the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home early Thursday morning. The business is owned by Al Hughes. Officers discovered the word “RAT” spray-painted on the front door of the building, porch furniture, company signs, a garage door and two vehicles. “If necessary the full resources of the U.S. Department of Justice and its sister law enforcement agencies will be used to protect federal witnesses against the bullying, cowardly and destructive conduct that was reflected in this incident,” United States Attorney Peter J.

He is currently working to transform his dissertation titled “Revitalization and its Discontents: The Political and Symbolic Economy of Post-Anthracite Scranton” into a book. “My basic argument is that rather than attracting industry, politics has sort of become our venue of attracting economic development through public subsidies,” Schmidt said Friday. Politics, he contends, is an essential component of the economy of Northeastern Pennsylvania and has been so for so many years. It has now come to the point that the culture exists independent of the

area and its residents. “Public employment is the most coveted form of livelihood around here because it’s the most secure. I would much rather work as a public employee in a secure, unionized job than I would in private employment where it’s insecure and you don’t know if the job is going overseas,” he said. “Because our economy is geared towards using politics as a venue, people aren’t in a position to overthrow this system of graft and corruption. People don’t want to overthrow it. They want a greater portion of it.” The culture, Schmidt said, is hardly an example of a few “bad apples sort of spoiling the bunch,” such as the case of former Lackawanna County Commissioners Robert Cordaro and A.J. Munchak who were convicted Tuesday of a combined 26 counts of public corruption including tax fraud, bribery and extortion. Rather, he believes it is systemic, durable and widely accepted as the way business is done in the area.

HesaidUnitedStatesattorneys have numerous resources and a light caseload that allows them to prosecute each trial effectively. Brauer said he was surprised that jurors didn’t put more weight into cases built by defense attorneys William Costopoulos, representing Cordaro, and Chris Powell, defending Munchak. “I think the defense did a good job in this case. I’m not surprised with the verdict and how split it was. I’m surprised that they were convicted of as many charges that they were,” Brauer said. A strong case on behalf of the convicted commissioners may have been overshadowed by a need for accountability, though. “Juries at this point and time, especially in this atmosphere at this time in Northeastern Pennsylvania, might be out to get any public official that is seen as corrupt. I think the charges were trumped up, and I think the con-

But Brauer also knows a key member of the prosecution team that worked to prove Cordaro and Munchak’s guilt in accepting bribes and kickbacks in a pay-toplay scheme involving county contracts.

victions were trumped up based on that,” Brauer said. Looking ahead While the guilty verdict brings a close to one chapter of Lackawanna County’s past despite appeals promised by the defense, Brauer said it will continue to impact politics in ways many may not see. “All elected officials are going to be extremely paranoid about what they do and what they’ve done and what they’re going to do in the future,” Brauer said. Even O’Brien, Brauer said, has stepped cautiously when making decisions from his seat on the sixth floor of the county administration building while touting an agenda of reform, honorable government and wise spending. “I’ve worked with Corey O’Brien quite a bit, and I know over the last couple of years he’s been paranoid about anything he does to make sure that he can never be brought up on any similar type of charges,” he said.

ruption has done wonderful things for this area. It has been a form of artificial life support.” In contrast, as cities and counties have been challenged to become more entrepreneurial, it has fallen on elected officials to play the role of both developer and politician. In Cordaro’s case, Schmidt said, the temptation to accept and in some cases allegedly demand finders’ fees for county contracts was too great. “Cordaro was in a position where he wasn’t well-coached. He didn’t have people around him telling him what to do, and he sort of became power drunk.” But it also comes down to a

professional choice. Munchak, according to Schmidt, “saw his opportunities and took them.” “He wasn’t a victim of Bobby Cordaro…The whole time he was his sidekick. They were a team…I would say that he was very much a part of it,” Schmidt said. The culture is so diverse that it has evolved to include different paths to corruption, including some who become “honest grafters” - those who are more selfless in their operation by using public resources to fund projects that benefit residents and enrich friends rather than themselves, according to Schmidt. “We have to ask, what is the underlying force here?” Schmidt said. “You’re going to see that this problem that we attribute to one individual has a lot of different fingerprints on it.”

TOM ROBINSON to Lackawanna, took care of the academic work they needed to conquer on the junior college level and were able to continue into the four-year college and/or professional sports ranks. Officially, Sean Barowski of Harrisburg Bishop McDevitt received the Pennsylvania Most Valuable Player award for the game. That, however, was simply a case of media members being asked to vote on the selection early in the fourth quarter, a process in place at many championship and all-star events, which often does not cause any problems. Sullivan already had done enough to receive some of the votes at that point and it is hard to believe that, after leading Pennsylvania’s best offensive stretches throughout the fourth quarter, he would not have received most of them if the process had been delayed until the contest actually was complete. “Basically, it was about pride,” Sullivan said. “I never give up no matter what the score is.” The make-up of the game, with Ohio taking a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and

The Little League Baseball allstar tournament season arrived this week. District 17 and District 32, which both cover Lackawanna County, got Little League (11-12 year-olds) and 9-10-year-old softball tournaments underway with action Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The 910-year-old baseball tournaments in both districts kicked off Friday night. By the time the district tournament schedule concludes July 25, Districts 17 and 32 will each produce five champions in baseball and three in softball. The extra champions in baseball come in the 10-11-year-old division and on the Senior League level where the districts do not have softball tournaments. There are no changes on the district level this season. The first differences in Little League tournament play will be noticed when the two local districts join Districts 16 and 31 from Luzerne County for Section 5 play. “All tournaments stayed the same with the exception that sections will be double-elimination for boys and girls,” District 17 and 32 information officer Marty Ort said. In the past, the section tournaments started with a round-robin before moving to elimination games. Ort said all boys’ sectional tournaments will be held at Lackawanna County sites this season with all of the girls’ tournaments being held in Luzerne County. The Lackawanna County leagues will not be hosting any of the state tournaments this season. For the second straight year, the Christy Mathewson League will host regional play for 9-10-year-old softball in August. In most tournament progressions, regional tournaments help state champions try to land World Series berths, but 910-year-old softball is still in the development stage so the regional event is the furthest that the teams can advance. Ort said when the tournament made its debut at Christy Mathewson last summer, nine of the11eligible states sent teams.

extending it to 35-7 by early in the third quarter, created chances for some and took them away from others. Morgan Craig of Abington Heights, the only Lackawanna County high school player to appear in the game, was positioned to be the top tight end for Pennsylvania. The all-star game rules, however, encouraged Pennsylvania to often go with four receivers and one running back and the team went that route even more as it tried to overcome a mounting deficit. While tight end play became almost irrelevant, the corps of wide receivers was put to use whenever Pennsylvania quarterbacks could find enough time to pass. Sullivan proved to be, by far, the most effective of that group. He led the receivers of both teams with six catches for 118 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. “I tried to put the team on my back and keep fighting,” Sullivan said. While most of the other Big 33 players move on to their final college destination, Sullivan will come to Scranton, looking to keep up the fight in terms of maintaining interest from Division I schools. “I’ve been up for a few visits,” he said. “It seems like a real hard-fighting organization. “It’s a hard-working team with good enthusiastic coaching.”

HERSHEY – Turning in a standout performance for the Pennsylvania team in the June 18 Big 33 Football Classic was not an easy task. Quinton Sullivan found a way to do just that. And that is a great sign for the Lackawanna College football program. Sullivan, a wide receiver from Harrisburg High School, was the most impressive player on a Pennsylvania team that suffered its worst loss in the 54-year history of the game when it was torn apart by Ohio, 50-14, at Hersheypark Stadium. The game featured graduating high school football players, most of which will go immediately off to Division I schools, including 20 to Big Ten teams. Traditionally, the Big 33 serves as a way to tell recruits just how ready they are for their transition into major college football. In the case of Sullivan and center Steve Finley, Sullivan’s past and future teammate at Harrisburg and Lackawanna, the game was a way of confirming whether they have the ability to eventually join their Big 33 teammates and opponents in the big time. Sullivan’s efforts made it clear that he has the potential, provided he follows the example of many recent athletes who came

Morgan eventually regained control for the final 19 seconds of the round. “He’s real good with his Jiu Jitsu,” Morgan said. “He’s the highest-level guy I’ve fought. “I knew I had to grind it out.” Morgan had one fight fall through and missed another because of injury since his pro debut. He also was 3-0 as an amateur and never had gone more than six months between bouts since taking up the sport after college. “I have to get better,” said Morgan, who will meet Steven Baker of Delaware on the July card. “I’ve got to get right back in the gym. “There’s no time for rest. If I’m going to make an impact, it’s got to be now.” Morgan won one of the four professional fights on the card. Joel Roberts (10-3) won his second straight main event with a toehold tapout of Bret Thomas at 3:53 of the second round in the bantamweight finale. Chase Owens and Scott Heckman each improved to 11-2 with wins in the first two pro fights. Owens beat Dwight Grant by a single point on all three cards. “It was a tough battle,” he said. Heckman had the fastest win of the night in 37 seconds against Casey Johnson, a North Carolina fighter who had won his first two bouts.

Wilson, Bisignani take wins By TOM ROBINSON For Go Lackawanna

SCRANTON – Cage Fight 8 at Riverfront Sports turned into a series of tactical Mixed Martial Arts bouts with nine of 13 going the distance. Steve Wilson had other plans. Harry Dickey had the Scranton middleweight off the ground with an early takedown attempt, but Wilson knew the result of his fight was hardly up in the air. Wilson locked his legs around Dickey, sunk in a chokehold and held on until he got a tapout 39 seconds into one of the two bouts that was decided in the opening minute. “That’s the third straight that I won with the guillotine,” said Wilson, who is 4-2 as an amateur with all of his wins coming in the first round via chokeholds. “Two of them were set up the same way. “He was going in for the takedown and I slipped in the guillotine.”

Wilson briefly considered a different approach to ending a fight. “I stunned him with a 1-2,” Wilson said. “I didn’t know if I should go for a knockout. “But, I got it in nice and deep. All I had to do is lock up the legs. It was in deep. I heard him breathing funny. I knew it was only a matter of time before he would tap out.” Wilson was one of two amateur winners from Scranton. Adam Bisignani posted a unanimous decision over Mike Colon, a Kingston, N.Y., bantamweight who had won his first three fights. Bisignani was on top of Colon for most of the first and third rounds, controlling action. Jason Colarusso and Mukhielelin Milazov both suffered losses. Colarusso lost a split decision to Dave Spadell Jr. in the final amateur bout and the most action-filled one on the

card. Spadell used his boxing advantage, including a one-punch knockdown in the third round, to wind up with the slight edge. It was the third time in the fight that Spadell appeared to take charge with his boxing, only to have Colarusso come back strong each time. “He has a great chin,” Spadell said. Josh Blockus of Kingston ruined Milazov’s debut with a unanimous decision in their heavyweight bout. Blockus had Milazov on his back for more than half the fight and was able to withstand a series of kicks by Milazov in the third round. Wilson had one of just two stoppages on the amateur card. Ian Brofsky, a recent Wallenpaupack High School graduate, had the other when he got an early takedown and worked himself into position for an arm triangle tapout by John Balazinski in 1:01.

AMATEUR RESULTS

Welterweights – Vinny Courts, Harrisburg (2-0) over Jason Lapage, Malone, N.Y. (1-1) by unanimous decision. Heavyweights – Mark DeFrancesco, Phillipsburg, N.J.

Former PSU running back is Miners’ first big time player By RYAN KONOPKI For Go Lackawanna

SCRANTON - North East Pennsylvania Miners head coach Dan LaMagna said Thursday afternoon’s press conference marked a stepping-stone for his players and for the organization. For Austin Scott, it marked one more opportunity to put on his pads. Scott, a former Penn State running back from 2003-07, signed with the

NEPA Miners of the semi-professional Major League Football Conference Thursday at The Mall at Steamtown in Scranton. “I’m happy to get back and be playing in the area,” said Scott, whose family resides in the Scranton area. The Miners were set to kick off their fifth season at 7 p.m. Saturday at Nanticoke High School against the Electric City Chargers.

Signing Scott was a major accomplishment and an added boost to the team, according to LaMagna. “He’s somebody who is serious about football,” said LaMagna. “It’s a huge impact to our team and our community. We have a gentleman here who has played at the highest (collegiate) level.” He was also impressed with the work ethic Scott displayed at a recent

tryout. “He’s going to raise the standard for us at practice, even before we get to the games,” LaMagna said. “Guys are going to push to get to that level, and it’s going to make our team better and result in wins on the weekends.” Scott, who also works for his uncle’s construction company in Scranton, See MINERS, Page 41 JASON RIEDMILLER PHOTO / FOR GO LACKAWANNA

was unsure if he wanted to continue to pursue another shot at playing football despite being recruited by LaMagna and conference rival Lehigh Valley Storm. The offer the Miners gave him, though, was something he had trouble declining. “They offered full health care,” Scott said. “Finances have taken a backseat for a couple years now. I’m getting older and I’m starting to focus on my future, not only as a football player but as a human being. “This job allows me to work on a career and also have fun playing football and help the community.” As a senior at Parkland High School in Allentown, Scott set Pennsylvania state records with 3,853 total yards -- fourth-highest total in national H.S. history -- and 53 touchdowns while on his way to a PIAA Class 4A title. He was selected as a second team All-American by USA Today and first team All-State by the Associated Press. During his first season as a Nittany Lion in 2003, Scott led the team with 435 yards on 100 carries. He ended his junior season with a 26-23 FedEx Orange Bowl victory against Florida State, which went three overtime periods. When starting running back Tony Hunt left the game due to an ankle injury, Scott carried the load of Penn State’s rushing attack with a game-high 110 yards on 26 carries. He scored two touchdowns, including his oneyard run in the second overtime

to give Penn State a 23-16 lead. In doing so, Scott became just the 11th running back in Penn State’s bowl history to eclipse100 yards, according to his profile on gopsusports.com. Thursday’s signing comes almost four years after he was kicked off the football team by Joe Paterno in October of 2007 amid sexual assault allegations. The charges, filed by Desiree Minder, were dropped six months later before the case went to trial, when a judge ruled jurors would have to hear Minder had accused another man of sexual assault in 2003. The man was acquitted of all charges. Scott and his attorney filed a civil lawsuit against Penn State, the university police, prosecutors and Minder in October of 2009. The lawsuit claims the prosecution tried to hide evidence of the other allegation. The lawsuit also alleges university police destroyed notes made by officers who handled the case, then altered their incident reports. The lawsuit is currently under review by a summary judge. “It’s definitely tough to move on from a situation like that,” Scott said. “From being a Penn State football player to, within a matter of less than12 hours, being kicked off the team. It’s been tough, but I’m trying my best not to look back and move forward.” Scott signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent following the 2008 NFL Draft but was released during the pre-season. In 2010, he played overseas in the German Football League with the Braunschweig Lions, finishing with 233 carries for 1,502 yards and11touchdowns. He also hauled in eight kickoffs for 125 yards.
