nominee in waiting after only two contests. His Republican rivals said otherwise, looking ahead to South Carolina on Jan. 21 as the place to stop the former Massachusetts governor. Already, several contenders and committees supporting them had put down heavy money to reserve time for television advertising there. Even so, the order of finish — Ron Paul second, followed by Jon Huntsman, with Newt Gin-

grich and Rick Santorum trailing — scrambled the field and prolonged the increasingly desperate competition to emerge as the true conservative rival to Romney. With his victory, Romney became the first Republican to sweep the first two contests in competitive races since Iowa gained the lead-off spot in presidential campaigns in 1976. Based on partial returns, The Associated Press estimated that

turnout would exceed the 2008 record by about 4 percent. Romney fashioned his victory despite a sustained assault by rivals eager to undermine his claim as the contender best situated to beat Obama and help reduce the nation’s painfully high unemployment. Gingrich led the way, suggesting at one point that Romney, a venture capitalist, was a corporate raider. The See ROMNEY, Page 8A

Joseph Perzia January 8, 2012


oseph Perzia, 71, of Swoyersville, went home to be with his Lord on Sunday afternoon, following a brief illness and stay at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. Born on August 8, 1940, in Ciaciana, Sicily, Joe was the son of the late Onofrio and Antonina Chiazza Perzia. He was a lifetime resident of Swoyersville. He graduated from Swoyersville High School in 1958 and served in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserves. Joe had been employed by PP&L as a lineman and later owned and operated Perzia Insurance Agency in Luzerne for 30 years. He was a member of Holy Family Parish, Luzerne, and was a devout Catholic. He was a member of Swoyersville American Legion and the Knights of Columbus.

a little farther to go to a record store,” Nardone Jr. said. He said the decline is not so much because of online music purchases, but the availability of more free music and new trends in music buying. “Yeah, we’re competing with downloads, for sure. But … it really hurts from a different direction. A lot of kids don’t go to record stores any more. Now only certain kids are into records and bands. It’s not even an album culture at this point, it’s going back to singles,” Nardone Jr. said. “One song satisfies the need of that person just like a cassette single or a 45 or whatever.” Nardone’s father, Joe Nardone Sr., opened his first record store – Joe Nardone’s Record Shop – in Wilkes-Barre in 1960. He eventually set up shop in the Wayne Department Store in Edwardsville. The Wayne chain expanded but then went bankrupt. Nardone Sr. pressed on and, in 1972, opened his first Joe Nardone’s Gallery of Sound in the then new Wyoming Valley Mall. That same year, he opened his first West Side store in the Gateway Shopping Center, stayed there 24 years and moved to the former Lewis-Duncan Sporting Goods store adjacent to the Gateway in 1998. The new location was at the time the largest Gallery of Sound and twice the size of the Gateway store. He moved back to a Gateway storefront in 2008 to make way for a restaurant. At its peak in the early 2000s, the Nardones had 11 stores in Northeastern Pennsylvania, in Bloomsburg, Dallas, Mount Pocono, Edwardsville, Pittston, Scranton, Matamoras, WilkesBarre, Wilkes-Barre Township, Clarks Summit, and Hazleton. The latter four are still open. Nardone Jr. said to have a cluster of five stores open in northern Luzerne County was “kind of odd,” and, although convenient for music fans, “business doesn’t dictate that type of arrangement anymore. … There are cities larger than Wilkes-Barre that don’t have any record store.” “But we’re still in downtown Wilkes-Barre and on Mundy Street (in Wilkes-Barre Township). We’re not really that far away,” Nardone Jr. said.

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: •Police said they arrested Melissa Sheppard, 35, of East Northampton Street, on charges she stabbed Keon Tyler, 22, during an argument at her residence Monday night. Tyler told police Sheppard was arguing with her nephew and lunged, stabbing Tyler in the arm, according to the criminal complaint. Police said Tyler was treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Sheppard was apprehended in the area of North Sherman Street and Amber Lane. She was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on two counts of aggravated assault and a single count of reckless endangerment. Sheppard was jailed at the county prison for lack of $40,000 bail. • Michael Selby, of 246 N. Main St., reported at 5:31 p.m. Monday that several items were stolen during a burglary at that location. • No one was injured Monday in a two-vehicle crash at North Washington and East Market streets. Police said Michael A. Decker, of Wilkes-Barre, driving a 1999 Ford Explorer south on North Washington Street at about 7:10 p.m., entered the intersection with East Market Street on a green light when Elias A. Amick, of Bloomsburg, drove a 2002 Saturn SC3 into the intersection against a red light while traveling east on East Market Street, striking the Explorer. • Police said they cited Robert Filipowicz, 40, of South Meade Street, with harassment after they investigated a disturbance involving Joanne Jones and Jim Jones at 169 S. Meade St. on Monday. Joanne Jones was bitten and Jim Jones suffered a laceration on his face, police said.

Marino backing Santorum

.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming U Township, has come out in support of Rick Santorum’s candidacy for presi-

dent. “Rick Santorum is a longtime friend of my mine. He has been a tireless advocate for commonsense conservative values his entire career. He is one of the hardest-working candidates that I have ever met; his showing Marino in last week’s Iowa Caucus is evidence of that. I want to congratulate him on his strong showing,” Marino said in a release issued by his campaign. “I share Rick Santorum’s vision of lower taxes, less spending, privatesector job creation, a strong national defense and traditional family values. I believe that Rick Santorum offers our best hope of recapturing the White House and returning this nation to its prior position of strength and greatness. I am proud to support his campaign for the presidency.” HARRISBURG

Democratic state senators have filed an appeal with the State Supreme Court asking for a legislative redistricting map to be voided, arguing that some aspects of it are unconstitutional. Among the senators who signed on to the appeal are John Yudichak, DPlymouth Township, John Blake, DArchbald, and Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills. Costa announced the plan to appeal last week, telling The Times Leader, “We have serious concerns about the redistricting process. The goal of maintaining one-person, one-vote was clearly not a priority. Political gain was the priority. We must follow what the state Constitution dictates, and that is to keep counties and municipalities whole unless absolutely necessary. They can’t be sliced and diced to help candidates win re-election. The voters deserve better.” The Supreme Court has set aside time on Monday to hear all appeals on the matter.


The Arc is funded by contracts with government agencies to conduct work such as monitoring quality of publicly funded services or devise programs that help clients remain independent. The Arc of Luzerne County created one program locally that helped clients get hired at Lowes. The idea was so successful it went national and employs about 300 people.

Counterfeiting is charged Louis Micklasavage, 40, of Dupont, has been charged with the production and passing of counterfeit money. The indictment charges that Micklasavage produced counterfeit notes with a stated face value of over $7,000. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced Tuesday that a two-count indictment has been filed by a grand jury in Scranton against Micklasavage. If convicted, Micklasavage could be imprisoned for up to 40 years and fined up to $500,000. According to U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith, the investigation began in June 2011when Dupont police responded to a complaint that alleged counterfeit bills were used at a local restaurant. A search warrant was executed at Micklasavage’s residence and he was arrested in July. The case was jointly investigated by the U.S. Secret Service and the Dupont Police Department. WILKES-BARRE

Cherry denied new trial A Luzerne County judge has denied the request of a man convicted of thirddegree murder to be granted a new trial. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley denied the request for a new trial made by Lamont Cherry, 37, charged in the May 2009 death of a 1-year-old girl. Cherry, in court papers filed two weeks ago, asked for a new trial because evidence at his trial did “not support the verdict.” Cherry was convicted in September of the charge after a second trial. The first trial, held in January resulted in acquittal Cherry on a first-degree murder charge -- and Cherry escaping the possibility of the death penalty -- and a mistrial after juror misconduct. Cherry was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley to 20 to 40 years in prison.

Funding comes from contracts to run such programs, monitor quality of government programs, the United Way, and membership -- $15 a year -- and all are welcome to join, Zotynia said. “We have a little less than 200 members right now,” she said. “We’d like to see as many people in the community as possible join and help us with our mission.”

WILKES-BARRE --- Disney’s Incredibles superheroes delivered a realistic message of how to live a healthy lifestyle to children at the Catholic Youth Center on Tuesday afternoon. Disney on Ice skaters spoke with the CYC children about the importance of physical fitness and then led children 11 years and up in a stretching exercise. All youngsters enrolled in the CYC program were invited to attend the

event, and about 250 were there. Participants got the opportunity to interact with Disney on Ice performers from around the world and meet special guests Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, the superhero couple from Disney’s animated movie “The Incredibles.” The show will be at the Mohegan Sun Arena from today through Monday. Times for the shows vary, and tickets cost $31.55 to $64.20 Children were bursting with excitement when Tasha Thomas, a Disney on Ice performer, shouted, “Are you kids ready to have some fun today?” The kids answered eagerly and got involved in the physical activity, chanting, “We want Incredibles!” When Mr. and Mrs. Incredible ap-

peared the crowd went in an uproar. “I’ve been looking forward to this for a whole month,” Diamonique Blount, 12, said. The couple, in full costume, posed for pictures with the ecstatic young participants to encourage physical fitness. “I want kids to be more active and off video games. … It’s wonderful to see how excited they are to be involved with the physical activity” said CYC Executive Director Mark Soprano. Asked if meeting Mr. and Mrs. Incredible has influenced them to be more physically active, Hayley Wylushewski, 11, said, “Yes! It makes me want to be strong like Mrs. Incredible. She’s awesome.”

Alleged rapist tracked down, arrested in store rest room By EDWARD LEWIS

WILKES-BARRE – A man was apprehended in a rest room at Turkey Hill after, police alleged, he raped a teen girl as she slept inside a Wyoming Street house early Monday morning. Jermaine L. Crosby, 28, of East Main Street, Plains Township, was charged with rape and statutory sexual assault. He was arraigned before District Judge Joseph Halesey in Hanover Township and remained jailed Tuesday at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $40,000 bail. Crosby was arrested after the girl was able to identify him only by his first name.

According to the criminal complaint: Police received information that the girl was awakened when she was being raped inside her house. She identified Crosby the man by his first name, Jermaine, who was staying at the house with his girlfriend, Tabitha Bidgood. Bidgood is a relative of the girl and shared a bedroom. The girl told police she had trouble sleeping because Bidgood and Crosby were arguing. Crosby told Bidgood to leave, and she went downstairs, leav-

ing Crosby alone with the girl in the bedroom. The girl awoke to find Crosby raping her, the complaint says. Police said the girl told her mother what happened, and she was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Police said Crosby and Bidgood were later found in the Turkey Hill at North Street and North Pennsylvania Boulevard. As an officer approached the store’s entrance, Crosby walked into the rest room, where he was detained. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Jan. 19 in Wilkes-Barre Central Court.

A packed crowd of Luzerne County citizens and employees waited after Tuesday’s county council meeting for the first public presentation about the five manager applicants who were personally interviewed. Council Vice Chairwoman Linda McClosky Houck prepared a council-approved slide show outlining the lengI F YO U thy manager selecGO tion process and the credentials of the The Luzerne Counfive: Robert Law- ty Council will hold ton, Rio Vista, Cal- a public work if.; Patrick J.

Lawton, Becher and Naftal were selected as the finalists, she said. Councilman Rick Morelli has acknowledged Lawton is the highestranked applicant. Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said the council has reached a consensus on the top applicant but is still in negotiations. All five interviewees saw the county’s transition to home rule as a professional challenge, Bobeck said. The frequent job changes of some finalists are not unusual because managers often face politically motivated termination, Bobeck said. Councilman Edward Brominski said one finalist was eager to move his family here, confident his young son would receive a quality education. Several finalists had experience downsizing government, said Councilman Eugene Kelleher. Councilman Stephen J. Urban told the audience a fresh search may be done if people are dissatisfied, because council has six months to select a permanent manager. McClosky Houck said the selection process was thorough, and she does not believe a new search would attract better applicants. Several citizens and council members harshly criticized Morelli for recently confirming the names of manager finalists to the media after the council had agreed to wait. See COUNCIL, Page 4A

SHICKSHINNY – Borough council, during a special meeting Tuesday morning, awarded contracts for restoration work at the flood-damaged municipal building on West Union Street. Initially, it was stated by council the project would entail heating and electrical service to the second floor and restoring elevator service. Overall, the project will be financed by FEMA grants and flood insurance funds, council said. Contracts for heating and ventilation, electrical service and the elevator work were awarded to the following companies, pending engineering and legal review: • Bognet Electric of Hazleton, $36,333, for heating and ventilation. • Spots Brothers Inc. of Schuylkill Haven, $45,319, for electrical. • Otis Elevator Inc., $53,874, for restoration of the elevator, the elevator shaft and associated electrical components. Officials said a major consideration in initiating the project on the second floor is enabling District Justice John Hasay to resume working in Shickshinny rather than at Central Court in WilkesBarre. A project to restore the entire building will be undertaken later this year, according to officials.

WILKES-BARRE – Mayor Tom Leighton read a statement at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting that he says should put to rest the perceived controversy surrounding the purchase of three fire engines in 2006. In the statement, Leighton explains the process that began with an anonymous $1 million private donation and ended with the purchase of the new fire trucks. “Nothing illegal was done here,” he said. Leighton says the donation was received from a private donor and a committee prepared requests for proposals, per the city’s specifications. KME Corp. of Nesquehoning was selected to build the three fire engines at a cost of $860,000. The equipment was not purchased through the state’s COSTARS program, though KME is a COSTARS vendor and was at the time of the purchase. COSTARS “is the Common-

Urban said he, his son and Morelli appear to be in the council minority.

Protests planned as prison continues to hold men who have been cleared for release

Guantanamo closure hopes fade By BEN FOX Associated Press


Another Woody work is honored

Woody Allen, director of the film, ‘Midnight in Paris,’ is shown during an interview in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was was nominated Monday for top filmmaking honors from the Directors Guild of America. Also nominated were ‘Hugo’ filmmaker Martin Scorsese, David Fincher for the thriller ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’; Michel Hazanavicius for the silent film ‘The Artist’; and Alexander Payne for the family drama ‘The Descendants.’

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Suleiman al-Nahdi waits with dozens of other prisoners in a seemingly permanent state of limbo five years after he was cleared for release from Guantanamo Bay. “I wonder if the U.S. government wants to keep us here forever,” the 37year-old al-Nahdi wrote in a recent letter to his lawyers. Open for 10 years on Wednesday, the prison seems more established than ever. The deadline set by President Barack Obama to close Guantanamo came and went two years ago. No detainee has left in a year because of restrictions on transfers, and indefinite military detention is now enshrined in U.S. law. The 10th anniversary will be the subject of demonstrations in London and Washington. Prisoners at the U.S. Navy

base in Cuba plan to mark the day with sit-ins, banners and a refusal of meals, said Ramzi Kassem, a lawyer who represents seven inmates. “They would like to send a message that the prisoners of Guantanamo still reject the injustice of their imprisonment,” said Kassem, a law professor at the City University of New York. Prisoners informed the guards in advance that they would be conducting peaceful protests to mark the anniversary, Navy Cmdr. Tamsen Reese, a spokeswoman for the detention center, said Tuesday, adding that such actions are “not uncommon” at Guantanamo. Human rights groups and lawyers for prisoners are dismayed that Obama not only failed to overcome resistance in Congress and close the prison, but that his administration has resumed military tribunals at the base and continues to hold men like al-Nahdi who have

been cleared for release. Critics are also angry over the president’s Dec. 31 signing of the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a provision allowing indefinite military detention without trial. “Now, we have Guantanamo forever

signed into law,” said Andrea Prasow, senior counterterrorism counsel for Human Rights Watch. “Instead of pushing forward with the agenda of closure, he has accepted the idea of indefinite detention for the duration of some undefined hostilities.”

The deal Erickson signed could see him get raises based on his annual evaluations. The contract also calls for the use of a university car and “standard benefits” for school executives. Erickson intends to step down at the end of the contract, university spokeswoman Lisa Powers said. He first revealed his intentions in an interview Tuesday with the Pittsburgh PostGazette. Erickson was promoted from provost to president on Nov. 9 after the resignation of Graham Spanier in the aftermath of child sex abuse charges against retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Krancer allowed Houston-based driller Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. to halt deliveries of fresh water to a dozen households in Dimock more than a month ago. The EPA is considering a plan to send water to Dimock itself. Krancer made his comments in a letter to an EPA administrator in Philadelphia. An EPA spokeswoman had no immediate comment Tuesday.

Syrian chief vows to crush uprising Assad again casts blame for revolt on terrorists, foreign conspiracy. By BASSEM MROUE and ELIZABETH A. KENNEDY Associated Press

BEIRUT — By turns defiant and threatening, President Bashar Assad vowed Tuesday to use an “iron hand” to crush what he called the terrorists and saboteurs behind Syria’s 10-month-old uprising in which thousands of people have been killed. In his first speech since June, Assad showed a steely confidence in the face of the uprising, one of the bloodiest of the Arab Spring. But opponents called it a rambling address by a leader who is dangerously out of touch. Assad repeated his past claims that a foreign conspiracy and terrorists are driving the revolt, not peaceful protes-

ters seeking to reform the country. “We will not be lenient with those who work with outsiders against the country,” Assad said in a nearly two-hour speech at Damascus University in a conference hall packed with cheering supporters. He also issued a veiled threat against those who have yet to choose sides. “Those who stand in the middle are traitors,” Assad said, flanked by Syrian flags. “There is no alternative.” The conflict in Syria is entering a new and heightened phase, with army defectors and some members of the opposition increasingly turning their weapons on government targets. The regime, in turn, has intensified an already deadly military assault, and a U.N. official said Tuesday that about 400 people have been killed in the last three weeks alone, on top of an earlier U.N. estimate of more than 5,000

dead since March. Assad also denounced the Arab League, which sent a team of observers into Syria in late December to assess whether the regime is abiding by an Arab-brokered peace plan that the regime agreed to on Dec. 19. On Monday, a group of Arab League observers was reportedly attacked in

northern Syria, suffering minor injuries. New deaths were reported Tuesday, with activists saying security forces killed at least 10 people in the eastern city of Deir el-Zour, despite the presence of an Arab observer mission in the area. “We will declare victory soon,” Assad said.

Pa. plans asset test for recipients of food stamps The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Pennsylvanians seeking food stamps will soon have to pass an asset test that state officials say is a way to weed out fraud but welfare advocates claim does more harm than good. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the asset test slated to take effect May 1.

The test would bar anyone under 60 from receiving food stamps if they have more than $2,000 in savings or similar assets. The limit would be $3,250 for anyone over 60. Houses and retirement benefits would be exempt, but second cars with a value of more than $4,650 would

count. The state Department of Public Welfare told the Inquirer the new policy will prevent someone from taking benefits if they have their own resources. But critics say the new test hurts seniors and the newly unemployed while making it harder for the working poor to save enough to escape poverty.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed reluctant to end the government’s historic policing of the broadcast airwaves and to strike down the “indecency” rules that guide prime-time TV shows. Broadcasters use the public airwaves, and the “government can insist on a certain modicum of decency,” said Justice Antonin Scalia during oral arguments on the constitutionality of a ban on fourletter words and nudity. “All we are asking for is for a few channels” where parents can be confident their children will not Cher hear profanity or see sex scenes, said Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who is a parent of two young children. At issue before the high court was a plea from the broadcast industry urging the justices to strike down or sharply limit the government’s authority to police the airwaves. Since the 1930s, federal law has prohibited radio and TV broadcasters from putting on the airwaves material that is “obscene, indecent or profane.” In the past decade, Bush administration appointees at the Federal Communications Commission launched a crackdown on indecency. Fox was fined for allowing celebrities, including singer Cher and U2’s Bono, to utter four-letter words during live awards programs. Lawyers for the networks urged the Supreme Court to throw out the fines and strike down the FCC’s indecency rules. They said federal policing of broadcast content was outdated and no longer warranted. They said most Americans receive entertainment and news though cable TV or the Internet, and these media have full First Amendment rights. Broadcasters deserve the same rights, they said. They also argued that current FCC policy against indecency is vague and arbitrary. They noted, for example, that the broadcast of “Saving Private Ryan,” the World War II movie by Steven Spielberg, was permitted, even though it included plenty of profanity.

oseph J. Sable Sabalesky, Professional Music Artist, Arranger, Band Leader, Conductor, Composer, Educator, TV Pioneer and Merchant, passed on at his home in Wilkes-Barre on January 7, 2012. His Musical Marks as a Professional Music Artist and Arranger Born on a farm in Preston in1922, the son of Michael and Frances Zugarek Sabalesky, he went on to perform as lead clarinetist and saxophonist with the finest musicians in the world, for royalty as well as for his neighbors. His work as a Professional Music Artist and Arranger began at 16 when he played in local bands. At19, he went on the road with Jack Melton, Colonel Manny Prager, Charlie Masters and other Morris Agency Bands. Entering the service in 1942, he served in combat as a flying Tech Sergeant Chief Radio Operator with the 364th Squadron of the 305th Bomb Group of the 8th Air Force in missions over Germany, Norway, etc. in the Central Europe Air Offensive, Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland and Ardennes arenas. He received the Good Conduct Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge, and European, African, Middle Eastern, Service Medal with 6 Bronze Stars. He was then recruited by the Special Services to join and eventually become Leader of The Rhythmaires of the 305th Bomb Group which played for GIs and royalty in the British Isles, Belgium, France and in castles on the Rhine River. His organization was honored to be chosen to play for General Eisenhower, and he was personally honored to be chosen to arrange the music for and play for the BBC broadcast to France to celebrate Bastille Day. Glen Miller’s Band came to hear him. The Armed Forces Network came to Chelveston, England, to use his Band for their movie. He gave a Special Services Radio Interview which, by chance, his mother heard in Ashley, Pa. Upon leaving the service he had many opportunities but chose to play with The Claude Thornhill Band which was No. 1 in the country. He was also recruited to be the arranger for the ILGWU shows which played on Broadway in the late 40s. Wanting more, he returned to the Valley, where he brought the sounds of Glen Miller and other Big Bands, as well as his own distinctive sound with his lead saxophone and clarinet artistry, but especially with his unique gift for creating music arrangements. If you enjoyed dancing and listening to the music of Jack Melton, Lee Vincent, Herbie Green, or the J. Sable BIG BAND, Wilkes and Scranton University musicals, King’s College Pep Band, etc., you enjoyed Joe’s work. He continued on the national scene by sending out special music arrangements for national artists such as Bob Eberly, and backing national artists such as Merv Griffiths. He once told Eddie Fisher, “Stick to it. You’re pretty good at this.” As a Music Educator He also began to make his Mark as a Music Educator, studying at Ithaca College and earning his Bachelor’s Degree at Wilkes College and his Masters Degree at Marywood College where he then taught in the Graduate School. Throughout his career he strove to be on the forefront of knowledge, and to use his talents for the benefit of his students. At the opening of West Side Central Catholic High School in Kingston he was chosen to establish and direct its first Marching, Concert and Stage Bands. Within 2 years the marching band was honored to be the first high school band from NEPA to play for TV performances: the pre and half-time shows for the Philadelphia Eagles at Franklin Field. He also developed a Symphony Orchestra there and his Music Theory students entered college at an advanced level. During this time he was also the Instrumental Specialist for Television School, a 90 half-hour series of telecasts prepared and hosted by Miriam Sable and sponsored by Wilkes-Barre School District in collaboration with WBRE-

TV. Also Music Methods and Materials created by Joe and Miriam were published and distributed worldwide by Instructo Products, now McGraw-Hill. In 1959 he was invited to Wilkes-Barre School District’s E. L. Meyers High School as Director of, and composer/arranger for, its Marching, Concert, Stage and German Bands, and its Orchestra, Modern Choir and Graduation Ceremonies. He also served as a classroom teacher. In 1969 he was honored to have the Yearbook dedicated to him. Eventually he was appointed as Supervisor of Music of Wilkes-Barre Area, where he put accountability to both students and taxpayers as a priority. He was also appointed Conductor of the Wilkes-Barre All-Area Symphony Orchestra. As a Music Merchant His Mark as a Music Merchant was made at Sables Music Learning Center in Kingston, where he provided quality instruments and advice to his patrons. Community and Professional Organizations In the community he served as a member of the Wyoming Valley Philharmonic Board and supported the Fine Arts Fiesta for many years with his J. Sable Big Band, as well as by providing music from both West Side Central Catholic and WilkesBarre Area musical organizations. He also met with people leading to the establishment of the Glen Miller Society, which later became the Big Band Society. In 2011, Local 140 of the American Federation of Musicians honored him for being a member for over 70 years and for your many contributions to the live music scene in Wyoming Valley and the surrounding area both as performer and band leader. His professional educational organizations included PMEA, MENC, PSEA, NEA and professional merchant organizations National Association of Music Dealers and National and PA Associations of School Music Dealers. Veterans organizations included Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 283, American Legion, Post 132, 305th Bombardment Group (H) Memorial Association, and Pa. Chapter of the 8th Air Force Historical Society. He was a Senior Member at Wyoming Valley Country Club, where he enjoyed golfing and many friendships. Sable always strove to compete with the best in the profession, but also was honored and grateful to have been associated with so many outstanding persons of value. He was preceded in death by his parents; infant brother, Peter; sisters, Anna Doran, Jewel Sokoloski, Mary Ziembo and Helen Niemenski. He is survived by his wife, Miriam; brother, Leonard; sister, Alice Christman; and nieces and nephews. Funeral will be held Friday at 9 a.m. from Mamary-Durkin Funeral Service, 59 Parish Street, Wilkes-Barre, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 a.m. in St. Mary’s Church of the Immaculate Conception, Washington Street, WilkesBarre.

Women missing from Pa. politics


OT ENOUGH women in Northeastern Pennsylvania hold public offices, which is a shame because their opinions should be shaping our schools, our state and our national debates. Instead, the Keystone State is basically a place where men still make all the rules. Pennsylvania voters have never elected a woman governor, not before women gained the right to vote, not after – not in 222 years. Nor have voters here propelled a woman into the U.S. Senate. Although Luzerne County’s contingent of state lawmakers currently includes three women representatives and one senator, the Legislature overall remains a boys’ club, at about 83 percent male. That puts Pennsylvania in all-too-familiar territory when ranked among states by the number of female state lawmakers: in the bottom 10. Even public school boards in Luzerne County tend to have pitifully small numbers of women, putting decisions about our children’s educations squarely into the hands of Toms, Johns and Josephs. Encourage a woman you admire to run for an elected office. Better yet, if you are a woman concerned about your community, become a candi-

date. Public corruption exposed in recent years in this region, and in Harrisburg, should give you plenty of inspiration to shake up the status quo. And programs designed to foster women’s participation in public life – such as the Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics at Pittsburgh’s Chatham University and the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in New Jersey – can give you the know-how and confidence. For starters, attend the “Ready to Run” event later this month at the University of Scranton. The event, featuring an address by former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies of Philadelphia, is set for 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Jan. 28. For details, call Dr. Jean Wahl Harris or Stan Zygmunt at (570) 9417400. You don’t need to possess all the attributes of an “Iron Lady” to seek public office, only the will to serve.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I think I might need a bigger pig.” Gene Stilp The political activist known for using an inflatable pink pig to protest excessive state government spending announced Monday that he will seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for Congress from the newly restructured 11th Congressional District. The seat is held by U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton.


State backtracks, endorses secrecy


HEN A RECENT Philadelphia Inquirer investigation revealed that more than a dozen Philadelphia school police officers had been clapped in handcuffs themselves at one time, the newspaper relied on personal information that a state appeals court now says can be kept secret in the case of state workers. The school police exposé offers only one example of how the public is well-served by the disclosure of information on the working of government agencies – whether it’s payroll data or policymaking. So it’s troubling that Gov. Tom Corbett pushed to halt the release of a complete profile of the state’s 70,000-member workforce, denying a newspaper request that included employee birth dates. An Inquirer investigative reporter had obtained the same information several times in recent years under the state’s EDITORIAL BOARD

open-records law. Yet, Corbett aides reversed that policy with a completely unproven claim that the data put state workers at risk for identity theft. Of even greater concern, a three-judge panel of the Commonwealth Court in late December bought into the identity-theft excuse for keeping the data secret. When state lawmakers updated the open-records law, though, they never intended that exception to be used as a blanket secrecy ploy. In fact, the Legislature specifically rejected a proposal to shield all state employees’ birth dates. Data on employees’ ages can be used for something as basic as distinguishing persons with similar names. Were the Commonwealth Court ruling expanded to other information on public employees, taxpayers might know even less about how their money is being spent. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Residents encouraged to have role in home rule


e encourage all interested Luzerne County residents to consider applying for positions on the county’s authorities, boards and commissions. Our new, home rule form of government will be most effective when people from all walks of life and all areas of our county take active roles and participate in their new government. With the exception of several appointments that we are required to fill quickly, there is no deadline for applications for other boards. Applications to apply for the various boards are available at this Web address: You must complete the application form and indicate which authorities, boards or commissions are of interest to you. You also are encouraged to attach a résumé with your application. While many of the more than 30 boards might not have immediate openings, the new home rule charter requires the county to publicly advertise all vacancies to give each member of the general public an opportunity to apply. This is a new mandate under the charter. All applications will be kept on file until there are vacancies. The appointments that must be made within the first 30 days of the new government include the Accountability, Conduct and Ethics Commission (two registered voters – one from each party); Board of Elections (four registered voters – two from each party – and one registered voter selected by the four appointed registered voters); and the Board of Tax Assessment Appeals (three registered voters). If you are interested in serving on any of these three bodies, please submit an application as soon as possible, but no later than 4 p.m. Jan. 17. The new county council is seeking applications from all areas of the county. Significant change might not happen overnight, but by working together, with each of us contributing, we can begin to make Luzerne County a place that inspires a sense of pride again for all of our residents.

S.S. recipients can earn and keep more money


ou probably already know that there were increases in Social Security and Supplemental Security Income monthly payments at the beginning of 2012. If you receive monthly Social Security or SSI payments, you received a 3.6 percent costof-living adjustment beginning with your payment for the month of January. For people who receive Social Security retirement benefits, there is more good news. In addition to receiving a little more each month, you might now earn more income without offsetting your benefits because the “earnings test” numbers also have gone up. If you have reached your full retirement age (age 66 for anyone born between 1943 and 1954), the earnings test does not apply, and you may earn as much money as you can without any effect on your benefits. However, if you are younger than full retirement age, collecting benefits and still working, we do offset some of your benefit amount after a certain earnings limit is met. For people under full retirement age in 2012, the annual exempt amount is $14,640, and if you do reach that limit, we withhold $1 for every $2 above that limit from your monthly benefit amount. For people who retired early, continue working and will obtain full retirement age in 2012, the annual exempt amount is $38,880, and we will withhold $1 for every $3 you earn over the limit from your monthly benefits. You can learn more about the earnings test and how benefits might be reduced by visiting our website,, and searching on the topic “earnings test.” Find out what your full retirement age is at our retirement age page, www.socialse-

Playoff system needed to name top college team


hat an anti-climatic ending to an otherwise explosive college football season! I mean, no playoff system to rightfully decide the champion? Even Division III college football has one. What other major sport on Earth doesn’t have a playoff to determine its champion? OK, so there are too many games in the season for the student-athletes? Fine then, drop a game in the season (to 11 games played), shorten the duration from the end of the regular season to the average bowl game play date; they could even give the students two one-week breaks throughout the season. As for the playoffs, if it’s the big dollars that the NCAA wants – and that’s apparently all it’s about anymore – let ’em have it. Stage brackets in which each game in the playoffs is a bowl game, leading to the bigger bowl games ending the playoff brackets and, eventually, to whichever bowl the NCAA chooses as the finals. There obviously wouldn’t be so many teams and bowl games in this system, but I think we can all agree that the number of bowl games being played is absurd, wherein almost every 6-6 team with a 2-5 conference record plays in a bowl. Time to put the computers in storage and let the playoff system decide the true champion. Frank Dannert Pringle

Budget fails to benefit Pennsylvania’s residents


ell, we see the governor’s new proposed budget. Once again he hurts the poorest among us, and once again he rewards the non-Pennsylvania resident: gas drilling corporations. If corporations are people, and we’re told they are, why don’t they pay taxes here? They haul ghostly amounts of profits out of state and leave us with the problems. It’s downright spooky how they get away with that. Why is that, Mr. Governor? Why is it okay to hurt the poor but reward the gas companies? Are we looking for campaign support again?

Wilkes-Barre woman is charged with selling fake meth By EDWARD LEWIS

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – A woman targeted by the state Office of Attorney General in the peddling of methamphetamine was actually selling a designer drug associated with bath salts, according to charges filed. Drug agents with the AG’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation charged Bridgette F. Campbell, 25, on Monday with seven

counts of selling a non-controlled substance she represented as an illegal drug. She was arraigned before District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre Township and released on $10,000 unsecured bail. Campbell, of Hazle Street, Wilkes-Barre, is accused of selling a substance she purported to be methamphetamine to agents at pre-arranged meeting sites she selected. Those meeting

sites were parking lots of McDonalds in Mountain Top, White Haven and Wilkes-Barre Township, a Fuel service station in White Haven and at her residence. According to the criminal complaint: Agents set up to purchase methamphetamine from Campbell on June 10, 16, 17 and 24. She selected the locations to exchange methamphetamine for money.

During the June 17 buy, Campbell took her child and was picked up on Susquehanna Street in White Haven, and was given a ride to her residence to exchange the narcotic for money, the complaint says. The substance Campbell allegedly sold as methamphetamine was chemically tested to be MDPV, according to the complaint. MDPV is described by the U.S.

Drug Enforcement Administration as a designer drug associated with bath salts, and has an ingredient called methadone, a stimulant in methamphetamine. A Luzerne County judge in April banned the sale of bath salts made with MDPV and other chemicals in the county. Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation on June 23 that banned the sale of bath salts statewide. The law took effect in August.

ROMNEY Continued from Page 1A

front-runner’s defenders said the rhetoric was more suitable to a Democratic opponent than a conservative Republican. Returns from 75 percent of New Hampshire precincts showed Romney with 38 percent of the vote, followed by Texas Rep Paul with 23 percent, former Utah Gov. Huntsman with 17 percent and former House Speaker Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum with 10 percent each. In interviews as they left their polling places, New Hampshire voters said the economy was the issue that mattered most to them, and a candidate’s ability to defeat Obama outranked other qualities. Romney had won in Iowa by a scant eight votes over Santorum, and gained barely a quarter of the vote there. On Tuesday, he battled not only his rivals but also high expectations as the ballots were counted, particularly since his pursuers had virtually conceded New Hampshire, next-door to the state Romney governed for four years. Seeking to undercut Romney’s victory, Gingrich and others suggested in advance that anything below 40 percent or so would indicate weakness by the nomination front-runner. They didn’t mention that Sen. John McCain’s winning percentage in the 2008 primary was 37 percent. Romney’s win was worth at least four delegates to the Republican National Convention next summer. Paul earned at

least two delegates and Huntsman at least one. Another four remained to be awarded, based on final vote totals. “Tonight we celebrate,” Romney told his supporters. “Tomorrow we go back to work.” Unlike Iowa and New Hampshire, where unemployment is well below the national average, joblessness is far higher in South Carolina. That creates a different political environment for the race. The state also has a reputation for primaries turning nasty, and it appeared that all of Romney’s pursuers read the New Hampshire returns as reason enough to remain in the race. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who skipped New Hampshire to get a head start in South Carolina, said Tuesday’s results showed

“The Pittston Memorial Library wants to expand, and funding is needed,” Carroll said. “Maybe Congressman Holden can pull on some ropes in Washington to help the project. The Pittston library is a jewel in the community.” Across the Susquehanna River, the West Pittston Library on Exeter Avenue is getting ready to reopen after repairs were made to damage caused by the September flooding. John Panzitta, board chairman, said the library damage came to $500,000, and only $125,000 was covered by flood

“the race for a conservative alternative to Mitt Romney remains wide open.” “We’re nibbling at his heels,” Paul said of Romney. Huntsman had staked his candidacy on a strong showing in New Hampshire, and he announced after the polls closed that he had passed his own test. “Where we stand is a solid position and we go south from here,” he said. Despite struggling to gain 10 percent in New Hampshire, Gingrich and Santorum also said they were in. About one-third of Republican voters interviewed as they left their polling places said the most important factor in choosing a candidate was finding someone who could defeat Obama in the fall. Romney won their support

insurance. The library board is awaiting approval from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the remaining funding. A “not-for-profit organization, like the library, should be OK as far as getting approval,” Holden said. The library hopes to reopen by the end of the month, Panzitta said. The goal of the Pittston Memorial Library Cosgrove Campaign is to raise $1.5 million to add a community room, a children’s story room, a craft center and other needed space. The campaign is named in honor of John P. Cosgrove, who has made donations to the campaign – historic photographs, artifacts and books, as well as $50,000. Holden said he plans to visit the

That prohibition continues a year after a person leaves county service. • County email can’t be misused. County vehicles, equipment and material may only be used for official purposes.

overwhelmingly. He ran about even with Huntsman among the one-quarter of the voters who cited experience as the most important factor in selecting a candidate to support. Paul ran first among voters who cited moral character or true conservatism. As was the case last week in Iowa, the economy was the issue that mattered most to voters, 61 percent of those surveyed. Another 24 percent cited record federal deficits. Romney carried the first group and split the second with Paul. The survey results came from interviews conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks with 2,670 voters across the state. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Pittston areas frequently over the next few months as the April primaries approach. “We Democrats didn’t have a seat at the table when the new district lines were drawn,” Holden said. “But I know this area very well, and I have a lot in common with the people up here. I come from a coal region, and I look forward to meeting as many residents of the area as I can.” Holden may have some opposition from within his own party. Matt Cartwright, a Lackawanna County attorney, said he is “seriously considering” a run for the Democratic nomination in the 17th Congressional District. He said he would make his decision “shortly after the New Year.”

• Special county privileges or services can’t be offered if they wouldn’t be available to “similarly situated” people, businesses or entities. • Attempting to influence proposed county legislation due to a private interest also is among the prohibitions.

Obama was unopposed in the Democratic primary. Romney committed a pair of unforced errors in the campaign’s final 48 hours, and the other contenders sought to capitalize. On Sunday, after a pair of weekend debates only 12 hours apart, the millionaire former businessman said he understood the fear of being laid off. “There were a couple of times when I was worried I was going to get pink-slipped,” he said, although neither he nor his aides offered specifics. And on Monday, in an appearance before the Nashua Chamber of Commerce, Romney was discussing health insurance coverage when he said, “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me. If someone doesn’t give me the good service I need, I’m going to go get somebody else to provide that service to me.” Huntsman, a former Utah governor, saw an opening. “Gov. Romney enjoys firing people. I enjoy creating jobs,” he said. And Gingrich said Bain Capital, the venture capital firm Romney once headed, “apparently looted the companies, left people totally unemployed and walked off with millions of dollars.” Romney has made his business experience a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, saying that Bain on balance created 100,000 jobs, and as a result, he understands how to help boost employment. He sought to shrug off the attacks, saying he had expected them from Obama in the fall, but Gingrich and others had decided to go first. “Things can always be taken out of context,” he said.

“We are reviewing the film, but like most evidence it is not for public information at this time,” Dessoye stated in an email about the vandalism outside the theaters. The city has a surveillance system that went on line two years ago – called Hawkeye Security Systems – with cameras in the downtown, city parks, playgrounds, parking garages and schools. At least two cameras are in the area of the Movies 14 complex. The Midtown parking lot is managed by the Wilkes-Barre Parking Authority, which operates a total of four parking garages and lots in downtown. Dessoye said the theater employs an off-duty police officer to patrol the facility “as they see fit.” “We have always kept a presence in the downtown area,” Dessoye stated. “With the volume of cars currently parked downtown, I am grateful for the fact there aren’t many break-ins to vehicles. Usually, car breakins in downtown and others citywide come in spurts. It is a simple and quick crime to commit and generally continues until we arrest the perpetrator for that crime or another type of theft.” Dessoye urged vehicle owners to remove valuable items from inside their cars and to immediately report any vandalism to police.

soliciting non-county business while they are engaged in county business. County solicitors and their firms or practices can’t represent companies seeking or holding county contracts or business agreements. • County employees and officials are required to disclose any possible evidence of violations, misuse or waste of county funds and abuse of official authority. The code grants them whistleblower protection. “Every covered person is required to expose corruption wherever discovered,” the code says. County council members who violate the home rule charter for

the first time will face a $100 fine, a public reading of the offense and suspension of their council voting rights for 30 days. The penalties increase with the number of offenses. Written complaints must be filed with the county manager. Within five days, the manager must submit the complaint to the commission and notify the subject of the complaint in writing. If a complaint is deemed legally sufficient, the commission must start a preliminary inquiry within 30 days of receipt. A preliminary inquiry must be terminated or opened as a full investigation within 45 days.

The subject of the investigation may request a hearing. If an ethics code violation has occurred, the commission imposes penalties. If it’s also a violation of federal or state law, the matter must be turned over to the proper authority for criminal prosecution. County Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said it’s a “rigorous” code with teeth. The formation of a local ethics commission is “somewhat unique,” he said. The code also contains ramifications when people knowingly file false claims, he said. “It’s all aimed at restoring credibility,” Bobeck said.









Another Paterno is shown the door

Short-handed Pens finally sink Admirals

Quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno won’t be on Bill O’Brien’s staff at Penn State.

Thompson scores twice early to lead SWB vs. Norfolk By JIM HODGES For the Times Leader






His first instinct had been to quit immediately. Understandably, Jay Paterno had strong reservations about finishing out the season as quarterbacks coach at Penn State after his father was fired by the school in November. But Joe Paterno helped convince him to stay aboard for the rest of the campaign. Now it’s time to say goodbye. Jay Paterno confirmed Tuesday he will not be brought back as a member of the Nittany Lions coachJay Paterno ing staff. “After talking with Coach Bill O’Brien, we have reached the conclusion that I will not be a part of the Penn State football staff moving forward,” Jay Paterno said in a statement. “I will spend the next few weeks consulting with my wife and family to weigh various future options both inside and outside of football.” Though the move was an expected one, his departure marks the first time a Paterno will not be on staff at Penn State since early 1950. Joe Paterno came to State College that year and took over as head coach in 1966, manning the position until Nov. 9, 2011. Jay Paterno joined his father’s staff in 1995, serving as tight ends coach for five seasons before being named quarterbacks coach in 2000. He was often the target of sharp criticism during his tenure as the Lions struggled to develop quarterbacks. Michael Robinson was the only quarterback under Jay’s tutelage to be drafted into the NFL, and he was converted to running back. Jay did, however, have a hand in bringing Penn State back to national relevance as he and offensive coordinator Galen Hall had split playcalling duties since the 2004 season. In 2005 with Robinson under center, the Lions transformed into one of the nation’s top offensSee PATERNO, Page 4B

NORFOLK, Va. – What was left of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins was more than enough Tuesday at Scope Arena. Two goals, scored by Paul Thompson within 16 seconds of each other early in the first period, sent them winging to a 3-2 win over Norfolk, ending a four-game Penguin losing streak against the Admirals. Ben Street, who had scored four of his 11 goals against Norfolk, made it five of his 12 with a power-play shot through the legs of Admiral goalie

Dustin Tokarski. “It’s nice to get some ‘puck luck,’ ” said Pens coach John Hynes. “I thought over the last three, four games we’ve been playing really well and pucks didn’t go in the net. So it was nice to get a good start, to get a couple of quick ones.” Perhaps as important, the Pens shut down Norfolk’s diminutive Cory Conacher, who had eight of his 21 goals against them in his first professional season. The 21 goals is tied for the AHL lead. “He’s had a lot of success against us, so we want to make it a point to

know when he’s on the ice,” Hynes said. “We wanted to not give him as much time and space as he’s had the last few games against us.” In what has become a daily response to yet more injury problems in Pittsburgh, the Pens sent defenseman Simon Despres north after the morning skate Tuesday. He joined Colin McDonald and Eric Tangradi with the parent Penguins. Pittsburgh had lost 250 mangames to injury going into their game Tuesday against Ottawa. The younger Pens also have six players on the injury list, including

goalie Scott Monroe, who might well have played Tuesday with Brad Thiessen struggling of late. Instead, Thiessen turned back 24 of 26 Norfolk shots in a building he has to consider his home on the road. He owns the Admirals in Scope. “Maybe it’s the warm weather,” cracked Hynes. “You could see his game starting to come back in the last week or so. Tonight you could see that he was reacting to the puck, he was seeing the puck. That’s when he’s at his best.” See PENS, Page 3B

With just nine days before its inaugural season was set to begin, the fledging North American Lacrosse League’s future continues to be fogged in doubt in a bitter despute between owners and league officials. The NALL will officially move its season to the fall, WilkesBarre/Scranton Shamrocks majority owner and team president Jim Jennings said Tuesday. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s professional indoor lacrosse team will begin its inaugural season in mid September and finish in early December,accordingtoleagueofficials. “I think we’ll be finishing better off than if we started in two weeks,” said Jennings, who cited the league will have a national television deal that will be announced in the coming weeks. “For us, it’s a better time to play. We received a lot of positive feedback from fans despite the move.” The schedule change comes after league presidents said a civil lawsuit, filed by the NALL on Jan. 5 against two of its teams and several individuals in a last-ditch effort to restore league operations, was dismissed Tuesday. Acting commissioner Anthony Caruso, an attorney at Scarinci Hollenback in Ocean, N.J., filed a complaint against the Charlotte Copperheads and Jacksonville Bullies franchises, as well as Jen-

Royals top Dallas in key Division II showdown By JOHN ERZAR

WILKES-BARRE – As wobbly as the crown of defending champion has looked this season atop Holy Redeemer, it fit pretty nicely on Tuesday night. The Royals faced their biggest challenge of the young Wyoming Valley Conference season, a Dallas team determined to


knock them from their REDEEMER perch. And the Mountaineers, despite a valiant comeback DALLAS attempt, couldn’t. Instead, Redeemer rode the hot perimeter shooting of Ryan DeRemer and a solid inside


game from 6-foot-7 Mike Prociak to dispose of Dallas 65-57 and regain sole possession of Division II. The victory was Redeemer’s eighth in a row against Dallas. The Royals have won 10 of the 11 times the two teams have played. “We’re starting to play like we did in our best game against Be-


Alabama football coach Nick Saban talks with reporters Tuesday in New Orleans Tuesday. Alabama beat LSU 21-0 in the BCS championship game Monday night. Despite the convincing victory by the Crimson Tide, some Associated Press voters refused to vote for Alabama as the No. 1 team in the nation.

This decision wasn’t unanimous for No. 1 vote By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

NEW ORLEANS — Alabama’s convincing victory in the BCS championship wasn’t enough to convince all 60 Associated Press college football poll voters that the Crimson Tide is No. 1. Four members of the media panel had Oklahoma State at No. 1, and Erik Gee, of KNML-AM in Albuquerque, N.M., picked LSU — as he said he would before the game.

“I was a lot closer than I thought I would be to changing my mind,” Gee said during a telephone interview Tuesday. “I don’t think I necessarily felt good about voting for LSU. But I also didn’t feel good about voting for Alabama. I stared at the computer for 10 minutes. It wasn’t an easy decision.” Alabama (12-1) was an overwhelming No. 1 in the final Top 25, receiving 55 votes. LSU (13-1), which beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime on the road in November

and played a much tougher schedule than the Tide, finished second and Oklahoma State (12-1) was third. The USA Today coaches’ poll had the same top three, but those voters are contractually obligated to put the winner of the BCS title game No. 1 on their ballots. While there have been occasions when coaches have ignored the rule, it was not the case this season. Alabama received See DISSENT, Page 5B

The Sixers are 7-2 and lead the Atlantic Division. It’s their best start since Allen Iverson helped them open 10-0 on their way to the NBA finals in 2000-01. Rookie Jimmer Fredette scored seven points in his first start for Sacramento. Filling in for injured leading scorer Marcus Thornton, the former BYU sensation shot 2 for 7. DeMarcus Cousins led the struggling Kings with 17 points. Mavericks 100, Pistons 86 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Dirk Nowitzki scored 18 points, and the Dallas Mavericks reached the .500 mark by routing the Detroit Pistons. Wizards 93, Raptors 78 WASHINGTON (AP) — Rashard Lewis and Nick Young each had 15 points to lead the Washington Wizards to their first win after eight straight losses.

PENS Continued from Page 1B

It was apparent that the way Albany handled Norfolk in two wins over the weekend has gotten around the AHL. Like the Devils had on Friday and Saturday, the Pens pressed Norfolk in its own end whenever possible, making the young Admirals make decisions with the puck. Norfolk thrives on open ice and open nets, and the Pens closed both in winning. Turnovers caused behind the net led to both of Thompson’s goals in the opening period. The first came on a pass from Street from behind the net. Thompson had the puck long enough to see an opening over Tokarski’s left shoulder and put the puck there for a 1-0 lead.

Prociak dominated on both ends of the court early on, blocking three shots during one Dallas possession. Those efforts led to a 19-8 lead after one quarter. Redeemer maintained a double-digits lead throughout the next two quarters – with Shahael Wallace (19 points) providing a boost – until Dallas (2-1, 6-4) finally cut it to nine points in the fourth quarter. “Everything we game planned

for was to not to give up the threes,” Dallas coach Doug Miller said. “And we came out from the beginning, and I’ll give them credit, they shot the ball very well.” Dallas’ Shane Dunn, who had a lone field goal through three quarters, hit a three and another field goal to move the Mountaineers within 53-44 with 5:20 remaining. Dunn, a divisional all-star last season, later added another three and made a steal that Don Behm converted into layup, cutting the deficit to 56-51 with 3:03 left. Prociak, though, came up big by tossing in a rebound to start a 7-0 run to seal Redeemer’s win.

For champs, success starts before the season Anytime you talk to a coach about how a wrestler can improve, the mentor will always say that workouts in the offseason are the key. After interviewing every champion at the Wyoming Valley Conference Tournament last weekend, attending workouts during the spring and summer months was the most common denominator for the gold medalists. One of the grapplers who cashed in big on wrestling in the offseason is Hanover Area’s Steve Radzwilla. The senior earned the 182-pound championship last weekend and he credited his win to the work he put in during the eight months between his regional appearance last March and when the Hawkeyes’ season started in early December. In 2010, he finished with a 30-15 record and a runner-up finish in the District 2 Class 2A Tournament. He

DAVE ROSENGRANT NOTEBOOK began 2011 with a fifth-place showing at the conference tournament. This season, he’s already at 17 wins. He hasn’t lost since opening weekend at the Darren Klingerman Invitational at Bloomsburg High School when he lost in the event’s semis and consolation semis to drop his record to 1-2. Since then, he’s reeled off 16 straight. His last victory, for the WVC title, came over Crestwood’s Roger Legg, who is one of the top skilled athletes at Crestwood in any sport. “(Legg is) a tough kid I wrestled but I worked hard in the offseason and everything is finally paying off,” said Radzwilla, who took part last summer in the Shamrock 570 Wrestling Club at Wyoming Seminary and Pittston Area. “All the conditioning is finally paying off and when other guys are tiring, I’m feeling good. You can’t

hold a guy down if you’re gasping. That’s pretty much what it comes down to.” GENERATING INTEREST Coughlin’s Brad Emerick (285 pounds) may be the only unbeaten wrestler in the WVC with a 14-0 mark, but seven grapplers have at least 10 wins and just one loss this season. One of those is Tunkhannock senior Charlie Generotti. While the Tigers have struggled since moving to Division I in 2010, going just 1-14 in division duals since then, the 170-pounder with a 15-1 record is helping the interest remain high in Tunkhannock. Last weekend, he won the WVC title to become the first Tiger to win the event since Ray Yagloski in 2010. He accomplished that feat while nursing a shoulder injury, but still managed to produce two wins via technical fall. Generotti’s only loss this season was by one point to Meyrick Lamb of

Mount Carmel in the semifinals of the Tunkhannock Kiwanis Tournament. The Tiger went on to place third in his home tourney. CRUSADERS-PATRIOTS PPD. In 2011, the hyped dual between Coughlin and Pittston Area was postponed then moved to the final dual of the schedule and the teams put on a big show. The same may happen in 2012. Tonight’s meet slated for Pittston Area High School has been postponed. As of Tuesday night, the Patriots were still slated to host Wyoming Valley West in another important WVC showdown Saturday night. Coughlin is set to wrestle at the Leighton Duals on Saturday. KNIGHTS CHANCE The important dual in D-II this week features Lake-Lehman traveling to Meyers tonight. The Black Knights are hoping to make a leap in their effort to claim

the division title, while the defending champion Mohawks are trying to avoid back-to-back losses. TOO CLOSE TO CALL? With three teams within four points of the WVC team title last weekend and those three – Wyoming Valley West, Coughlin and Pittston Area – getting ready for a tough week of duals this seems like the perfect time to brush up on your tiebreaker scenarios just in case they are needed. 1. Least number of team points deducted for flagrant or unsportsmanlike conduct. 2. Most matches won. 3. Most points for a fall, default, forfeit or disqualification. 4. Most points for a tech fall. 5. Most points for a major decision. 6. Most first points scored. 7. Most points for near falls. 8. Most takedowns. 9. Most reversals. 10. Most escapes. 11. Least amount of penalties for stalling. 12. Least amount of stall warnings. 13. Fewer number of points for other infractions. 14. Flip of the disc.

nings, Jacksonville president Brett Vickers, and Charlotte owner Graham D’Alvia. “The plaintiff is in control of the league funds, the league website and the league intellectual property, and seeks to stop the continuous dissemination of false information,” said Caruso in a Jan. 5 press release. Jennings and Vickers said a Monmouth County (N.J.) judge vacated the lawsuit Tuesday. Vickers said Foley-Lardner LLP attorneys emailed him of the judge’s decision. Anthony Chase, president of the Kentucky Stickhorses, dismissed Jennings and Vickers’ statements that the lawsuit had been dismissed, claiming in an email that he “can unequivocally state that there has been no settlement of our case.” “The fact of the matter is that the NALL will begin play on January 21st and the schedule will

be released shortly,” wrote Chase, who said he would not further comment on the case due to the litigation. “This is but one more case of a mistruth and/or misrepresentation being promulgated by at least one of the dissenting teams who falsely purport themselves to represent the NALL.” Chase explained in an e-mail the case was “only moved to federal court since more than one state is involved.” Jennings said he does not know who the Stickhorses will play this winter. The Shamrocks president said he is “100 percent certain that four of the six teams – Hershey, Jacksonville, Charlotte, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton – will be starting in the fall.” Boston is scheduled to begin play in 2013. Chase said he would not further comment on the case due to litigation. Caruso, Foley-Lardner and Aaron Musselman, one of the owners of the Hershey Haymakers, did not return calls Tuesday. Vickers confirmed there

stands no chance that Jacksonville could play in January since the franchise canceled its deal with its arena for this winter. “Even if we wanted to play we couldn’t,” he said. Jennings said the league voted 4-2 in favor to remove Caruso from his acting commissioner status on Dec. 31, with the Boston and Kentucky franchises casting the dissenting votes. Caruso is the second commissioner in the league’s short tenure. Former NBA D-League president Phil Evans previously served as commissioner of the league until October. The Shamrocks’ president cited “fundamental differences” between the two sects of ownership groups. As of Tuesday, the Charlotte, Jacksonville and Hershey logos are removed from the NALL’s website banner. The Caruso-led league’s Jan. 5 press release referred to Jacksonville and Charlotte as “two of its former teams.” Jennings said the league will conduct a national search for a

Panthers 2, Canucks 1 SUNRISE,Fla. — Marcel Goc scored the tiebreaking goal midway throught he second period and the Florida Panthers beat the Vancouver Canucks. Goc also had an assist as the Panthers won for just the third time in nine games. Dmitry Kulikov scored the Panthers’ first goal and Scott Clemmensen finished with 25 saves. Wild 5, Sharks 4 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Matt Cullen scored in the third period and in the first round of the shootout to help the skidding Minnesota Wild recover from a late stumble to beat San Jose, stopping the Sharks’ four-game winning streak. new commissioner. Despite the league’s schedule change, the Shamrocks will host Team Ireland on March 15 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. They will also face the USA national team during the early summer. According to Jennings, the Shamrocks front office will meet with arena officials today to set the 2012 schedule. Vickers said more teams may be added before the start date. “Everything stays the same,” said Jennings. “We’re just moving back the season a few months.” On Thursday, Waterbucket Media, the former public relations firm that represented the NALL in 2011, issued a press release that announced the league’s move to September. On Friday, the very next day, the league stated on its page that play was still expected to start on Jan. 19. Jennings said that, despite the schedule change, only six of the Shamrocks’ 1,400 season-ticket holders cancelled their plans.

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Draymond Green had 22 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 6 Michigan State beat Iowa 95-61 on Tuesday night for its 15th straight win.

With another mobile quarterback, the lightly recruited Daryll Clark, Penn State won 22 games in 2008 and 2009, just missing playing for the national title in 2008. Quick with a joke, Jay often acknowledged the scorn he would hear from fans, doing so one last time following his final game at Penn State. “It does cross your mind when you walk off the field the last time that it may be the last time you coach at Penn State,” Jay said following a 30-14 loss to Houston in the TicketCity Bowl on Jan. 2. “It may not. I’m sure there’s some people that hope it is the last time that I walk off the field as a Penn State coach. Who knows?” Jay said he had put aside his early misgivings and was interested in staying aboard on the new staff. He had also interviewed for the head coaching job. In confirming his exit on Tuesday, Jay thanked his former players as well as the fans. “I thank the student-athletes that I’ve been privileged to coach over the past two decades at four schools,” he said. “Hopefully my

career has had an impact and helped you learn about life, and about the commitment and passion it takes to pursue personal excellence. “As for Penn Staters, I cannot even begin to express what your support has meant to me and my family over the past seventeen seasons and in particular the past two months. Through the tumult of the past several weeks, it has been your stalwart support combined with life lessons learned from Joe Paterno that has and continues to sustain us.” With O’Brien rounding out his new staff, the writing was on the wall for Jay and many other longtime assistant coaches. O’Brien reportedly has agreements with seven coaches for his nine-man staff. Holdovers Larry Johnson and Ron Vanderlinden are set to join newcomers Stan Hixon, Charles London, Mac McWhorter, Ted Roof and John Strollo. Along with Jay Paterno, safeties coach Kermit Buggs has also confirmed he will not be brought back. Recruits have said tackles/ tight ends coach Bill Kenney has told them he also will not be retained. The rest of the former staff – including Tom Bradley, who served as interim coach after Joe Paterno’s firing – is not expected to return.

all 59 first-place votes. Only once in the last five years has the final AP No. 1 been unanimous. Unbeaten Alabama received all 60 firstplace votes after the 2009 season. The Crimson Tide’s 21-0 victory Monday night at the Superdome didn’t sway Gee, but it did persuade two other AP voters who had said they expected to vote LSU (13-1) No. 1 even if the Tigers lost. “The score says it all,” Joe Giglio, of the News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., said in an email early Tuesday morning. Giglio ended up voting Alabama No. 1. Seth Emerson, of The Macon Telegraph in Georgia, was also leaning hard toward keeping LSU in the top spot. “My thinking was I was going to keep the Tigers No. 1 unless they got trounced — and they did,” he said. Emerson, however, ended up giving Oklahoma State his first-place vote, along with Matt Markey, of The Toledo Blade in Ohio, Steve Conroy, of the Boston Herald, and Scott Wolf, of the Los Angeles Daily News. Big12 champion Oklahoma State finished its season with a 41-38 overtime victory against Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl last week, and many fans believed the Cowboys should have played LSU instead of Alabama getting a second chance to beat its Southeastern Conference rival. But when the final BCS standings

were posted in December, the Tide was second behind LSU and just ahead of Oklahoma State. The AP Top 25 isn’t part of the formula used to determine the championship matchup. Emerson had Oklahoma State second and Alabama third in his final regular-season rankings, and said the Cowboys had done enough to stay ahead of the Tide after both won bowl games. “OSU wins and drops a spot?” he said. Emerson said Oklahoma State had more quality victories than Alabama, and as good as the Tide is defensively, the Cowboys were as impressive on offensive. “All I know is every time I saw them, Oklahoma State scored points,” he said. “I think Oklahoma State would give Alabama a hell of a game.” Emerson would like to see changes in the Bowl Championship Series that would allow more than just two teams to play for the national title in the postseason. That sentiment was prevalent in comments made by all five voters who didn’t roll with the Tide. “I thought Oklahoma State played a better overall schedule than Alabama and deserved a share of the title if LSU lost,” Wolf said in an email. “The fact that Alabama got a second shot at LSU influenced my decision because it is tough to beat the same team twice. “It’s not Oklahoma State’s fault the BCS system denied them a chance to play in the title game.” Conroy said his “gut feeling” was Oklahoma State’s offense, which was third in the nation at 550 yards per game, would have prevailed against Alabama’s top-ranked defense, which allowed 183 yards per game.

She’s now averaging 4.9 points and 2.0 rebounds a game with 13 steals and six assists. “Janelle worked her way into the lineup and has done a terrific job as a defensive stopper and extra ball handler,� coach Chris Ditzler said. “She’s brought speed and a tremendous work ethic to the team.� Ditzler feels that her background playing with the Hazleton team has helped her transform to the college game. “She comes from a great high school program that focuses on fundamentals and it shows,� the coach said. “She is gaining more confidence as an offensive threat along with all of her other assets. We’re looking for some great things from her in the future.�

Full cost of attendance: After 161 of 355 schools signed an override petition, the $2,000 allowance that was approved in October has been suspended. The Division I Board of Directors will meet Saturday to discuss three possible options: Rescinding the rule, modifying the rule and sending it out for another 60-day comment period, or allowing a membership vote on repealing the rule. It would take a five-eighths majority (221.9 votes) to scrap the rule. Four-year scholarships: Eighty-two of 355 schools signed an override measure to change the board’s decision to award multi-year scholarships instead of scholarships that are renewed annually. Some schools contend that other academic scholarships are renewed annually, and that athletes should be subject to the same rules. The board could let the rule stand without any changes. Scholarship reductions: One subcommittee that has already recommended scholarship cuts in football and women’s basketball is scheduled to issue its report during Saturday’s board meeting. It is unclear what the board will do. Enforcement changes: A second subcommittee will report to the board Saturday on plans to overhaul the enforcement process. NCAA President Mark Emmert is seeking a multi-tiered penalty structure that imposes tougher sanctions against programs with the most egregious rules violations and that makes the penalty phase more predictable. He also has asked the subcommittee to consider ways that enforcement proceedings can be sped up while still allowing a fair, thorough hearing. The board is not expected to take any action until later this year.







U.S. hiring up 107,000 jobs


Fed gives $77B to treasury

The Federal Reserve paid the federal government $76.9 billion in 2011, the second highest amount in history. The central bank earned the money from investments made to bolster the U.S. economy. The Fed reported the 2011 payment is down from an all-time record of $79.3 billion made in 2010. In contrast, the payment in 2008 was just $31.7 billion. The Fed began buying Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities during the recession and 2008 financial crisis to try to lower long-term interest rates.

ment said Tuesday in Washington. The number of jobs filled in the three months to November was the highest since the period from March through May 2010. The thawing in employment comes as other reports indicate firings have eased, highlighting an improvement in the labor market that is contributing to a rebound in consumer confidence and spending.

Eastman Kodak Co. said Tuesday it has realigned and simplified its business structure in an effort to cut costs, create shareholder value and accelerate its long-drawn-out digital transformation. Its depressed shares shot up 50 percent to close at 60 cents. The 132-year-old photography icon has been pummeled by consumers’ switch to digital.

rolls will take time to develop. “Any hiring increase is encouraging,” said Henry Mo, an economist at Credit Suisse in New York. “No matter how many openings you have, if you don’t hire, then it doesn’t translate into the results the economy is looking for.” Payrolls increased by 200,000 workers last month after a100,000 gain in November, and the unemployment rate fell to an almost threeyear low of 8.5 percent, Labor Department figures showed on Jan. 6. Job openings dropped 2 percent in November from a

revised 3.22 million in the prior month that was less than previously estimated, the report from the Labor Department showed. The hiring rate climbed to 3.2 percent in November from 3.1percent the prior month. It had been as low as 2.9 percent in January 2011. Total job cuts, including retirements and those who left their job voluntarily, increased to 4 million in November from 3.9 million a month before. Firings climbed to 1.69 million from 1.6 million in October.


3,100 exhibitors at CES

The trade group that puts on the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas says it has hit a record number of exhibitors this year, as the industry continues its rebound after the recession. The show is already the largest trade show in the Americas. It opened Tuesday and is expected to draw more than 140,000 attendees. The Consumer Electronics Association says the show has more than 3,100 exhibitors, up from a pre-show estimate of 2,800-plus. The show usually has just over 2,700 exhibitors, but dipped to 2,500 in 2010.

December good to AC

Atlantic City’s casinos posted a monthly revenue increase of 4.2 percent in December, marking the first time in 3½ years they had done so. Slot machine revenue was up 8.3 percent, to $174.1 million, while table game revenue decreased by 4.3 percent, to $72.5 million. For the year, though, Atlantic City’s casinos won $3.3 billion, which is down 6.9 percent from 2010. It marked the fifth year in a row that Atlantic City casino revenue has declined.

Company failures slowing By WALTER HAMILTON Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Fewer big companies are going out of business. The number of publicly traded companies filing for bankruptcy declined in 2011 for the third straight year to levels last seen before the 2008 global financial crisis, according to Eighty-eight public companies entered bankruptcy proceedings last year, a 17 percent drop from the 106 filings the previous year and down 58 percent from 211 filings in 2009, according to the website. The figures cover Chapter 11 petitions for companies seeking to restructure and Chapter 7 filings for those planning to go out of business. MF Global Holdings Inc., the collapsed financial firm that was headed by Jon Corzine, the former governor of New Jersey, was the largest company to file for bankruptcy. Other large companies included AMR Corp., the parent of American Airlines, and bookseller Borders Group Inc. The average asset size of companies filing for bankruptcy last year was $1.2 billion, up from $840 million in 2010, largely because of the $41 billion bankruptcy of MF Global, the eighth-largest in U.S. history. The data indicate that larger companies are regaining their footing after a surge in bankruptcy filings during the financial crisis. The number of Americans filing for personal bankruptcy fell 12 percent last year, as 1.35 million Americans entered Chapter 7 or 13, according to an analysis for the National Bankruptcy Research Center by Columbia Law School professor Ronald Mann.

Our beautiful sunny morning today is the calm before the storm, but once again the odds are favoring mostly rain for tonight and Thursday. At the onset early tonight, temperatures from the ground up to 5,000 feet will be just cold enough to allow for sleet and possibly a brief period of snow. After midnight, a slow warming of temperatures will bring plain rain and drizzle and fog by Thursday morning. Total rainfall will range from 4- to 8tenths of an inch. The rain should end Thursday afternoon and on Friday the next cold wave will begin moving in with squalls to set the stage for a biting cold but dry weekend. - Tom Clark m

NATIONAL FORECAST: A storm system will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Southeast as rain spreads north through the Mid-Atlantic and toward the Northeast. A second storm system will be to the west, with snow from the Upper Midwest and northern Plains to the central Rockies. High pressure will be in control of the weather throughout the West.






Feel-good foods are new A-listers By BOB BATZ JR.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


ccording to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 will be the Year of the Dragon. According to the crystal balls of more than one watcher of food trends, it also will be “The Year of the Potato.” • So sayeth Andrew Freeman & Co., a San Franciscobased hospitality and restaurant consulting firm. Its detailed annual trends report, dubbed the “Passion Collection” and available online at, elaborates thusly:

“Watch out for french-fry menus that let guests choose the cut, crispness, and sauce, make-yourown mashers with mix-ins, or custom-cut chips with dusts and dips to order. Everyone’s chipping in.” Trends maven Marlene Parrish also is seeing spuds. “After years of banishment by skinny Atkinsdiet types and low-carb pushers, potatoes are becoming fashionable again,” she predicts. “In restaurants, spuds will get the spotlight as if they are something new: mashed with variations, baked with custom-built toppings, french-fried with benefits. “At home,” Marlene says, “I have my own potato thing going on, cooking my way through “300 Best Potato Recipes,” by Kathleen Sloan-Mcintosh, a book from Robert Rose publishers of Canada. The book is written with wit, clarity and a Ph.D.’s worth of depth and knowledge.” In other business besides potatoes, here, passed on from several sources and with several grains of artisanal salt, are some food forecasts for 2012. • Fat phobia: As hate for overweight grips the globe – even the stylish French are seeing a dis-

turbing rise in obesity – look for big names such as Pepsi to get in on healthy choices, says Marian Salzman, CEO of Euro RSCG Worldwide PR. • Pluerry: This hybrid fruit, a combination of a plum and cherry, was developed for plum-lovers who don’t like juice dribbling down their chin. Breeders have perfected the combination after years of experimentation, and it could be in supermarkets soon. • Buzzwords for 2012: Fresh sardines. Ultralong dry aging of meat. Uni. Yuzu. Tamarind. Ox tail. Duck will make a comeback but not slathered with orange marmalade. Hand-made ricotta and burrata. Kalbi, bibimbap, bulgogi. Huacatay (better look it up). Bone marrow.

Seaweed in non-Asian dishes. Now hear this Phil Lempert, who runs, has been doling out his annual food forecasts (with ConAgra Foods, one of the companies he works with). One of his more offbeat and intriguing ones is this: Listen for the sound of food. People judge the readiness of some foods (such as microwave popcorn or grilled burgers) by the sounds they make.

building, puts out “pounds and pounds” of hand-cut chips per day, owner Abby Singh said, but what it’s really known for are its signature truffle Parmesan fries. These spuds are doused with white truffle oil and shaken up with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, fresh out of the fryer. “They’re so good that when that when they pass by you and they’re really hot, the smell of the truffle oil makes you weak in the knees,” Singh said. If the scent wasn’t enough to rope a diner in, the taste is likely to. These may look like ordinary french fries, but one bite brings on a totally different taste.

TRENDS Continued from Page 1C

the new “food sciences” in 2012, as psychologists and food scientists join forces to design, create and influence the sounds of our foods to convey freshness, taste and even health attributes. Are we vampires? Trends on the James Beard Foundation’s blog, Delights & Prejudices, include this “stab at what we think will be crossing our plates” in 2012: bloody good food. Maybe it’s our love for “Twilight” and “True Blood.” Maybe it’s the natural next step in the nose-to-tail movement. Whatever the reason, blood is appearing on menus more and more: blood pancakes, blood cups, sauces thickened with blood. Other Beard predictions include: • Caneles: the new cupcakes: First it was pies. Then it was macaroons. Our bet for the next hot specialty bakery item? Caneles, a favorite in Bordeaux, made from an egg-yolk-enriched batter baked in copper molds lined with caramel and beeswax. • Doughnut world tour: These irresistible fried treats have recently resurged in popularity.

top trends with the International Food Futurists and Mintel International. Predictions include: • Inconspicuous consumption: In tough economic times, those who are doing well don’t really want to cut back, but they don’t want to flaunt it either. This attitude has had an impact on many restaurants as well as on culinary tourism. • Social cooking: Expect to see more, and more expansive, outdoor kitchens and more “group cooking,” with everyone participating, using multipurpose cooking equipment. • Groovin’ on Peruvian: The next hot ethnic food is the cuisine of Peru. The South American country is home to many new culinary schools, and new Peruvian restaurants are opening up all over the USA. weighs in Top 2012 food trends according to include: • Mini-me: Forty-six percent of home cooks reported eating a mini-dessert in the past year, while 29 percent have tried making them at home. Allrecipes expects this trend to move out of the bakery and into the kitchens of home cooks. • You inspire me: Mom’s cooking is having a hard time keeping up with the ability to search any time of day or night for a recipe idea online. • Devices: Mobile technology Food Channel forecast is definitely the top trend for The Food Channel compiled 10 meal planning.

mushroom with a mild taste. “It’s a good combination because the potato absorbs the flavor of the truffle oil really well,” Singh said. But fries and chips, of course, are only two reasons to skin a potato. Locals have long loved a traditional mashed-potato-pizza dish called pagach. Pizza Bella in Forty Fort sells plenty of it, especially this time of year. “It seems to be the holidays and Lent that it’s very popular,” a Pizza Bella baker who answers to

• What’s on your fridge door: Ketchup has reigned as the U.S. condiment king for 125 years, but salsa is nipping at its heels, and mayonnaise is enjoying a revival. • Love the sandwich: Higherquality ingredients from herb-infused bread to grass-fed pork and innovative ingredients (e.g. caramelized onions, watercress and Sriracha sauce) will elevate the humble sandwich to one of the top comfort foods of the year. Feed me all day long Food and nutrition marketing and PR firm Publicis Consultants USA’s dozen trends include: • Perpetual snacking: Make way for “grazing the day,” as 24/7 lifestyles heighten the demand for snack-able foods. • Pop-ular popcorn: Yes, it’s an explosive trend. It’s healthful, convenient, natural, versatile and affordable, the most fun you can have with whole grains. • Barramundi, the next sustainable seafood: Feeding on a mostly vegetarian diet of plankton means this Australian import’s delicate flaky flesh is extremely low in toxin levels but full of heart- and brain-healthy omega-3s. It will be a shoo-in on menus and in packaged foods. • Turmeric, the real “spice of life”: Expect to see a lot of this bright yellow spice, an element in curry powder with a long history of medicinal uses. Turmeric contains high levels of antioxidants and touts anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties.

Wilkes-Barre Rotary donates to Osterhout Free Library

John J. Jamiolkowski III John Joseph Jamiolkowski III, son of John and Sheila Jamiolkowski, Wilkes-Barre, celebrated his ninth birthday Jan. 9. John is a grandson of Patricia Simon and Barbara Jamiolkowski, Wilkes-Barre, and the late Eugene Talley and John Jamiolkowski Sr. He has a brother, Erek, 7.

Red Hat Day being sponsored by Queen Council

The Rotary of Wilkes-Barre recently donated $5,542 to the Osterhout Free Library.

Teen’s addiction to porn is dangerous for both him and his girlfriend Dear Abby: I have been dating “Kyle” for more than six months. I always thought we had a wonderful relationship and that Kyle was a sweet, innocent guy. Well, he just confided to me that he has an Internet porn addiction! I’m very hurt by this and don’t want to lose him. What should I do? (By the way, we’re both 14.) — Innocent Teen in Michigan

ADVICE gives them an unrealistic expectation of how regular, normal women look and act. Although you don’t want to lose him, becoming more involved could lead to his wanting to try out his sexual fantasies with you — and if you go along with it, it will land you in a world of trouble. The smart thing to do is end this relationship NOW.

Dear Innocent Teen: You should urge Kyle to get help for his addiction. Addiction is behavior that is compulsive and out of control. The problem with teenage boys getting involved with Internet porn is it

Dear Abby: My husband and I are empty nesters. We both work and live far from our kids and grandkids. I have wanted to move closer to them, but I also understand we need to meet our goals for a secure



retirement. The problem is, I’m lonely and I think my husband is, too. We work long hours and spend our weekends doing chores. My solution to help myself feel better is to get a dog. My husband, however, doesn’t want one. He wants to wait until “later” — whenever that is. I think a pet would make me leave work earlier and force both of us to get out of the house. I know there are expenses involved, but i’m willing to make sacrifices. Am I being unreasonable or silly? I want my husband to be a part of raising a pet and, perhaps, participate in some obedience training. I’m trying my best to persuade him without being a nag, but I’m beginning to feel like a little kid who’s begging “Daddy” for a puppy. I’d appreciate


some advice. — Pining For a Puppy in Texas Dear Pining: Before embarking on a “pet” project, don’t you think you should first find out what may be causing your husband’s behavior? While a dog could help you both be more active, between his job and the weekend chores, taking a puppy to obedience training may be too much for him. If he’s not up to it, would YOU be willing to shoulder that task — and the walking, feeding, grooming and cleaning up? An energetic puppy can be a lot to handle. Would you consider adopting an older dog, or fostering one that needs a temporary home? I don’t recommend bringing a dog into your lives unless your husband agrees.

And if he doesn’t, please consider volunteering a few days a month at an animal shelter or pet rescue kennel. Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: “Abby’s Favorite Recipes” and “More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.” Send a business-size, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $12 (U.S. funds) to: DEAR Abby — Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included in price.) To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). The friendship you seek is less important than the friendship you bring. Go into the scene ready to be a stellar listener, and give others a quality of attention that will make them feel important. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There will be those around you who act as though the rest of the world was born to serve them. You’ll be the reality check, politely drawing boundaries and restoring balance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As intellectual as you may be, you’re always operating on another level, too, a level that is affected by things like color, warmth and music. You’ll gravitate toward beauty and comfort. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s one thing to talk about the things you appreciate and quite another to let those things generate a joy in you that radiates from your heart and rings out through your body. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Where you go in your imagination you can go physically, as well. The reverse is also true. You’ll test the theory by trying to imagine yourself experiencing something you want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Most people are their own worst enemy. Realizing that you’ve sometimes inexplicably acted to defeat your own interests, you’ll seek victory over that part of yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How you communicate will convey much more than the actual words you say. Everyone around will read you loud and clear.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The chopping block comes out. The elements of your life that do not serve an obvious function will be up for scrutiny. Just because something is enjoyable doesn’t make it superfluous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Without your influence, there are those who won’t be able to tear themselves away from the negativity of the world. You’ll find an anecdote for the negative stuff going on. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have the time. If you find that you don’t have the time for something you think is important, it might be because you don’t want to do it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a cause speaking to your heart. You’re still not sure what you can do that would make the biggest difference. Since this can’t be predicted, the best thing to give is what you want to give. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you’re true to yourself, things might work out. If you succeed by doing something other than what feels right to you, the victory will be hollow. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). What you once thought was unfair will prove to be the best thing that ever happened to you. You’ll build up your resources through February and March. Then in April you’ll be ready to bring a new side of you to the world. You’ll be met with applause, as well as some excellent advice about how to proceed. Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 50, 31, 28 and 4.

Teen’s addiction to porn is dangerous for both him and his girlfriend Dear Abby: I have been dating “Kyle” for more than six months. I always thought we had a wonderful relationship and that Kyle was a sweet, innocent guy. Well, he just confided to me that he has an Internet porn addiction! I’m very hurt by this and don’t want to lose him. What should I do? (By the way, we’re both 14.) — Innocent Teen in Michigan

ADVICE gives them an unrealistic expectation of how regular, normal women look and act. Although you don’t want to lose him, becoming more involved could lead to his wanting to try out his sexual fantasies with you — and if you go along with it, it will land you in a world of trouble. The smart thing to do is end this relationship NOW.

Dear Innocent Teen: You should urge Kyle to get help for his addiction. Addiction is behavior that is compulsive and out of control. The problem with teenage boys getting involved with Internet porn is it

Dear Abby: My husband and I are empty nesters. We both work and live far from our kids and grandkids. I have wanted to move closer to them, but I also understand we need to meet our goals for a secure



retirement. The problem is, I’m lonely and I think my husband is, too. We work long hours and spend our weekends doing chores. My solution to help myself feel better is to get a dog. My husband, however, doesn’t want one. He wants to wait until “later” — whenever that is. I think a pet would make me leave work earlier and force both of us to get out of the house. I know there are expenses involved, but i’m willing to make sacrifices. Am I being unreasonable or silly? I want my husband to be a part of raising a pet and, perhaps, participate in some obedience training. I’m trying my best to persuade him without being a nag, but I’m beginning to feel like a little kid who’s begging “Daddy” for a puppy. I’d appreciate


some advice. — Pining For a Puppy in Texas Dear Pining: Before embarking on a “pet” project, don’t you think you should first find out what may be causing your husband’s behavior? While a dog could help you both be more active, between his job and the weekend chores, taking a puppy to obedience training may be too much for him. If he’s not up to it, would YOU be willing to shoulder that task — and the walking, feeding, grooming and cleaning up? An energetic puppy can be a lot to handle. Would you consider adopting an older dog, or fostering one that needs a temporary home? I don’t recommend bringing a dog into your lives unless your husband agrees.

And if he doesn’t, please consider volunteering a few days a month at an animal shelter or pet rescue kennel. Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: “Abby’s Favorite Recipes” and “More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.” Send a business-size, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $12 (U.S. funds) to: DEAR Abby — Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included in price.) To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). The friendship you seek is less important than the friendship you bring. Go into the scene ready to be a stellar listener, and give others a quality of attention that will make them feel important. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There will be those around you who act as though the rest of the world was born to serve them. You’ll be the reality check, politely drawing boundaries and restoring balance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As intellectual as you may be, you’re always operating on another level, too, a level that is affected by things like color, warmth and music. You’ll gravitate toward beauty and comfort. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s one thing to talk about the things you appreciate and quite another to let those things generate a joy in you that radiates from your heart and rings out through your body. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Where you go in your imagination you can go physically, as well. The reverse is also true. You’ll test the theory by trying to imagine yourself experiencing something you want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Most people are their own worst enemy. Realizing that you’ve sometimes inexplicably acted to defeat your own interests, you’ll seek victory over that part of yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How you communicate will convey much more than the actual words you say. Everyone around will read you loud and clear.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The chopping block comes out. The elements of your life that do not serve an obvious function will be up for scrutiny. Just because something is enjoyable doesn’t make it superfluous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Without your influence, there are those who won’t be able to tear themselves away from the negativity of the world. You’ll find an anecdote for the negative stuff going on. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have the time. If you find that you don’t have the time for something you think is important, it might be because you don’t want to do it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a cause speaking to your heart. You’re still not sure what you can do that would make the biggest difference. Since this can’t be predicted, the best thing to give is what you want to give. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you’re true to yourself, things might work out. If you succeed by doing something other than what feels right to you, the victory will be hollow. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). What you once thought was unfair will prove to be the best thing that ever happened to you. You’ll build up your resources through February and March. Then in April you’ll be ready to bring a new side of you to the world. You’ll be met with applause, as well as some excellent advice about how to proceed. Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 50, 31, 28 and 4.
