PLAINS TWP. – A local medical facility has seen a recent boost in the number of patients seeking treatment after ingesting synthetic bath salts, even though the substance was banned in Pennsylvania last year. Bath salts were supposed to

be pulled from store shelves last summer after Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation making it illegal to possess, sell or use them. Despite the ban, some stores have been selling the substance that can cause life-threatening physical and psychological effects, often presenting it as plant food or insect repellant. In November, a federal grand jury indicted a Wilkes-Barre couple and three others on charges of illegally distributing bath salts

“We have definitely seen a surge in the numbers in the last week or two.”

N.Y. YANKEES DEAL CATCHER FOR PITCHER The Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees traded a power pitcher for a power hitter. The Mariners agreed to trade right-hander Michael Pineda to the New York Yankees for catcher Jesus Montero on Friday, a swap involving two young stars under the age of 23. A person familiar with the deal confirmed the trade. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss the trade that will be completed pending physicals. As part of the trade, the Yankees also sent 24-yearold pitcher Hector Noesi to Seattle for 19-year-old righty Jose Campos. Page 1B

KINGSTON – Trinity Shaver is a quiet girl – super-shy, her mother says – but she spoke up when she was needed most. The 6-year-old probably saved her grandmother’s life by dialing 91-1 after the woman suffered an acute respiratory attack Jan. 2. “I said In recognition of her cool head ‘Trinity, I and swift ac- can’t tion, Kingston declared Friday breathe.’ Trinity Shaver … She Day and pretook it sented the firstgrader with a over from certificate of there.” recognition Helen Eddy from the muTrinity’s nicipal fire degrandmother partment. “We’re so proud that you’re a resident of Kingston, and that you were so smart to save your grandmother’s life,” said Kingston Fire Chief Frank Guido, addressing Trinity in front of her class at Pringle Street Elementary School. “We’re extremely proud of you.” On the day of the emergency, Trinity was at her Belles Street home because her school was out for Christmas break. Her grandmother, Helen Eddy, was babysitting Trinity and her 5-year-old sister, Isis, while their mother was at work.

NEW YORK — Penn State President Rodney Erickson wrapped up three cities in three days of often tense meetings with alumni assuring this: “We’re going to be OK.” And that was one thing frustrated graduates could applaud. Erickson faced about 300 alums in a packed hotel ballroom in lower Manhattan on Friday night, the last stop on a road trip intended to calm anger about how the university has dealt with a child sex abuse scandal involving longtime assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Instead, the sessions have triggered more anguish and another round of introspection for the people who love the school and its football program. A teary-eyed woman asked: “How do you explain the lack of due process for Joe Paterno?” That drew sustained if not unanimous applause. The largest ovations came for queries criticizing the Board of Trustees and the school’s public relations efforts. “I can assure you that as I go back to the Penn State campus, I

WA board Pizza delivery man robbed at knifepoint dismissed from suit By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A federal judge has dismissed Wyoming Area School Board members from a lawsuit filed by a janitor but allowed the suit to continue against Superintendent Ray Bernardi. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo on Thursday ruled that William Simmons has presented sufficient evidence to allow his claims of political retaliation against Bernardi to go to trial but found he had failed to meet the burden of proof relating to individual board members. Simmons filed suit against Bernardi and board in 2010, alleging he was subjected to a hostile work environment because he had associated with Patrick Pribula, who was an adversary of Bernardi. Simmons resigned from his job in November 2007, but later rescinded his resignation. He was fired by the board in January 2008 after he failed to return to work. He later won his job back through arbitration. In his lawsuit, Simmons alleged he was forced to resign due to incorrigible working conditions created by Bernardi. Simmons alleged Bernardi, among other things, had given him directives that were impossible to complete, including a demand that he spread 15 tons of mulch on a playground field within only a week or two. Bernardi has denied he retaliated against Simmons. But Caputo said evidence presented by Simmons was sufficient to call into question the motivation for Bernardi’s actions. Caputo dismissed the counts against the board members, however, noting that Simmons had made no specific allegations that they directly participated in issuing any of the directives handed down by Bernardi.

Mericle deal challenge is opposed Times Leader Staff

An attorney representing juveniles in the “kids-for-cash” lawsuits says the operator of a juvenile center has no legal standing to challenge a proposed $17.75 million settlement reached with real estate developer Robert Mericle. In court documents filed Friday, attorney Daniel Segal says PA Child Care and Mid Atlantic Youth Services have failed to show they have a legal right to challenge the settlement agreement reached with Mericle in December. Bernard Schneider, attorney for PACC and MAYS, filed a court challenge on Jan. 5 that asks U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo to disapprove the settlement on several grounds, including allegations that it treats some juveniles more favorably than others. A defendant in a civil lawsuit does not ordinarily have the right to challenge a settlement reached with a co-defendant. Schneider contends his clients should be permitted to intervene in this case, however, because the settlement contains provisions that harm their ability to defend themselves. Schneider said one of the issues is that the settlement would preclude his clients, should they be found liable, from seeking to recover money from Mericle to offset their financial contribution. In his reply brief, Segal contends Schneider has misinterpreted that section of the settlement agreement. The settlement provides a credit for the Mericle payments to all parties who remain as defendants that would protect them from having to pay more than their proportionate share, Segal said. Because of that, Schneider has no legal standing to challenge the settlement.

HAZLE TWP. – A Domino’s Pizza employee was robbed Thursday by two men with knives, one of several reports of muggings of food delivery workers in the region in recent weeks. State police at Hazleton arrested Michael Albert Odorizzi, 42, and Timothy Oliver Anderson, 24, after tracing a telephone number used to place the food order to a residence on Winters Avenue. Odorizzi and Anderson were arraigned Friday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, simple assault, terroristic threats, theft and harass-

ment. They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $30,000 bail each. According to the criminal complaints: Juan DeLarosa told state police two masked men shoved him and held a knife to his throat when he stopped on Wasko Court to deliver a food order for Domino’s at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday. DeLarosa said one of the men, identified as Anderson, told him, “Here’s what you do. Give me all your money. Is this all you got? A couple of bucks isn’t worth your life. What about the food?” DeLarosa told police the two men took a small amount of cash

Simonson asks to withdraw A man serving a life sentence in the beating death of a Plymouth man in 2009 has asked a judge to be permitted to withdraw his guilty plea to a seconddegree murder charge. Michael Simonson, 34, of Plains Township, in a hand-written Simonson letter to Senior Judge Joseph Augello, asked to be permitted to withdraw his plea in a post-sentence motion. Simonson was charged in the April 2009 death of Donald Skiff, whose body was found in wooded area of Suscon Road in Jenkins Township two months later. Simonson pleaded guilty to the charge in August 2010, and was immediately sentenced. In his letter, Simonson asked for a new attorney and to be permitted to stand trial “due to the fact of his innocence.” A judge has not scheduled a hearing to decide on Simonson’s request.

LOCAL Bishop objects to U of S speaker Former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies, who is pro-abortion rights, to speak about women running for office.

By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Invited to deliver the keynote address at a conference on getting more women to run for elected office, former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies intends to stick to the topic

when she speaks at The University of Scranton in two weeks. Her appearance at the “Ready to Run” program on Jan. 28 has caused a rift between Margolies the Catholic school and the Diocese of Scranton due to her pro-abortion rights views. The school’s president, the Rev. Kevin P. Quinn, denied a request Friday by

Bishop Joseph C. Bambera to withdraw Margolies’ invitation. “I do think the president of the college handleditwithgreatgraceandhonesty,” said Margolies. Though her views on abortion are in conflict with Catholic teaching, they’re likely not to be discussed. Instead, she will focus on other women’s issues at the conference presented in conjunction with the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. “I have not been asked to come and

Barletta backs post office More than four months after flooding forced the U.S. Postal Service to close the Shickshinny Post Office, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, sent a letter to two high-ranking officials with the United States Postal Service asking that the post office reopen as quickly as possible. “The citizens of Shickshinny Borough currently have no grocery store, bank, or post office in their town. They have suffered extreme emotional and physical hardship in rebuilding from the worst flooding in history. Many are elderly and rely on the post office for basic communication needs. I urge you to act as quickly as possible to conduct an assessment of the damage to the post office and reopen the facility in the very near future,” Rep. Barletta wrote to Megan Brennan, chief operating officer and executive vice president of the USPS, and Kevin McAdams, manager of consumer and industry for the Central Pennsylvania District of the USPS. “I hope the United States Postal Service acts quickly to assess the damage to this building, fix what needs to be fixed, and give the people of Shickshinny their post office back.”

‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE’

WILKES-BARRE

A woman who filed a protectionfrom-abuse order against the owner of LAG Transport has asked a judge to withdraw the petition. Marti Calpin, 32, of Trucksville, originally filed the PFA against 40-year-old Leo Glodzik III, of WilkesBarre, after a SeptemGlodzik ber incident. A county judge enacted the PFA in October for one year. In the PFA filing, Calpin alleged Glodzik also assaulted her on March 12, 2011, and in August 2009. Calpin, in a filing this week, asked that the PFA be withdrawn against Glodzik, citing he has been attending anger management classes and has refrained from physical abuse and/or abusive behavior. A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 24 for a judge to decide on the withdrawal.

Elaine Vrabel, 63, of Wilkes-Barre, has been a fan of the ABC soap, “One Life to Live,” since 1972. In that same year, Vrabel married and endured the flood of ’72. Vrabel recalls watching the soap every day since the Agnes Flood with her husband. Steven died on Jan. 4. Nine days later, their show aired its final episode. “He knew ‘OLTL’ was coming to an end when he died, but he didn’t make it to see the final show,” said Vrabel. “Watching the last episode without him really reminded me that I’ve only got one life to live.” Fans of the soap – which had a final episode on Friday – said that they could often relate to the story lines of “OLTL.” “I liked watching the show because I knew that the characters’ lives were always worse than mine, and they dealt with many issues that we see in our society,” said Wendy Price, 40, of Dallas.

“If it was the death of a loved one, a Starting Monday, “The Revolution” cheating spouse, the birth of a new life, talk show will take the ABC network or the loss of everything, someone timeslot at 2 p.m. weekdays. could relate to one story or another.

Kelly out of Senate race Wilkes-Barre resident Brian Kelly has ended his bid for U.S. Senate. He officially withdrew Friday as a candidate for the Democratic nomination. Kelly was the only declared Democrat looking to take on Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr., the Democratic incumbent, in the Kelly April 24 primary. Kelly, a retired Marywood University information technology professor who challenged Rep. Paul Kanjorski in the 2010 May primary and garnered 17 percent of the vote, announced his Senate candidacy in October at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. He cited the difficulties of garnering enough signatures and money to mount a campaign as reasons he was dropping out.

Municipalities see mild early-winter weather as pretty cool Less snow and ice and higher temperatures than last year at this time mean savings, officials say.

A similar phenomenon has held true for January – so far anyway, Smerbeck said. While that may not be good news for skiers, municipal officials aren’t complaining one bit. Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin said less snow means less snow-plow breakdowns, overtime and salt and cinder use to drain the city’s $108,210 winter budget. “Manpower and overtime are one of our heaviest expenses.

Not only has this winter thus far been easy on the backs of Luzerne County residents charged with shoveling sidewalks, it’s put less strain on local municipal budgets as well. According to Accuweather.com senior meteorologist Bob Smerbeck, this time last winter the area had already been blanketed with 13.4 inches of snow, compared to the 1.9 inches we’ve received so far this winter.

Call him ‘Goldfinger’ Chavez

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez holds a gold bar Friday as he gives his annual address to the National Assembly in Caracas, Venezuela. Chavez defended policies, including his recent decision to withdraw gold reserves from U.S. and European banks. He criticized prior governments, saying: ‘They had taken our gold away.’

TEHRAN, Iran — Thousands of mourners chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” on Friday during the funeral of a slain nuclear expert whom Iranian officials accuse the two nations of killing in a bomb blast this week as part of a secret operation to stop Iran’s nuclear program. The assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan has raised calls in Iran for retaliation against the U.S. and Israel, and an independent news website Fri-

day said Iran is preparing a covert counteroffensive against the West. Roshan, a chemistry expert and a director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in central Iran, was killed in a brazen daylight assassination when two assailants on a motorcycle attached a magnetic bomb to his car Wednesday in Tehran. The killing bore a strong resemblance to earlier killings of scientists working on the Iranian nuclear program. State TV showed thousands of people carrying Roshan’s coffin through central Tehran before it was taken to a north cemetery for burial. As it marched, the crowd chanted “death to terrorists.” Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all

state matters, called Roshan’s killing a “cowardly assassination” and accused the U.S. and Israel of being behind the attack. He vowed Thursday that the perpetrators and those who ordered the attack would be punished. U.N. Secretary Ban Ki-moon on Friday during a visit to Lebanon issued a vague condemnation of the killing, saying attacks on “any people, whether scientist or civilian,” are not acceptable, according to U.N. spokesman Eduardo del Buey. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has denied any American role in the slaying and the U.S administration condemned the attack. Israeli officials, in contrast, have hinted at covert campaigns against Iran without directly admitting involve-

ment. The assassination was carried out a day after Israeli military chief Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz was quoted as telling a parliamentary panel that 2012 would be a “critical year” for Iran — in part because of “things that happen to it unnaturally.” That prompted Hossein Shariatmadari, director of the hardline Iranian daily newspaper Kayhan, to ask why Iran did not avenge Roshan by striking Israel. The independent news website, irannuc.ir, quoted an unidentified security official as saying Iran is preparing a covert counteroffensive against the West in retaliation for the bomb blast. It suggested the retaliation could include assassinations abroad.

Leader seeking support

akistan’s prime minister appealed for support Friday from parliament P in a standoff between his beleaguered

government and the military, saying lawmakers had to choose between “democracy and dictatorship.” Tensions between the armed forces and the civilian leadership have escalated in recent months, raising fears of a coup attempt or that the army might support possible moves by a partisan Supreme Court to oust the elected government. The military and the government have been locked in a standoff for months, but a scandal that erupted last year after an unsigned memo was sent to Washington asking for its help in heading off a supposed coup has caused friction to spike this week.

Edwards has heart problem

Ex-presidential candidate John Edwards has a life-threatening heart condition that will require surgery next month, his doctor told a judge presiding over Edwards’ upcoming court case over possible campaign violations. A cardiologist for the 58-year-old ex-North Carolina Senator wrote two letters about his condition to Judge Catherine Eagles who talked about them Friday during a hearing to consider whether the trial would go on later this month. She delayed it until at least March 26. Prosecutors had said they were ready to try Edwards on six felony and misdemeanor counts related to nearly $1 million from wealthy donors used to help hide his pregnant mistress during his 2008 White House run.

Official wants PM gone

Iraq’s Sunni deputy premier called Friday for Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki to step down and warned that the country’s festering political crisis risks sparking a wider sectarian conflict in the region. Deputy Prime Minister Saleh alMutlaq stood by an earlier charge that Iraq is becoming a new dictatorship under al-Maliki, a Shiite. He said Iraqis could eventually rise up violently if al-Maliki remains in his post, and pushed for a parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the prime minister if he remains in office. A spokesman for al-Maliki dismissed al-Mutlaq’s comments, saying they are “not worthy of a response.” Al-Mutlaq’s Sunni-backed Iraqiya party has been boycotting parliament and Cabinet meetings since last month to protest what it sees as efforts by al-Maliki to consolidate power, particularly over state security forces.

Suit: Fired for fake penis

A Northeastern Pennsylvania woman claims she was fired from her job for wearing a prosthetic penis to work while contemplating gender reassignment. Pauline Davis filed a federal civil rights lawsuit Wednesday against J&J Snack Foods Corp. over her termination from the company’s plant in Moosic, near Scranton. Davis says she wore the prosthetic to work as a line inspector, informing some co-workers who passed in the information along to management. According to the suit, Davis was fired even though the device didn’t interfere with her work. Davis’ suit claims a male employee undergoing hormone treatments and female clothing was treated more favorably.

Coast Guard personnel on snowmobiles prepare to enforce the safety zone during the fuel transfer from the Russian tanker Renda to the dock in Nome, Alaska.

Russian fuel tanker gets through to Nome Transferring diesel and gasoline via mile-long hose from ship to shore fraught with potential problems. By MARY PEMBERTON Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Russian tanker has muscled its way through hundreds of miles of Bering Sea ice several feet thick to deliver fuel to Nome. Now comes the tricky part: Getting more than a million gallons of diesel and gasoline to shore through a mile-long hose without a spill. The problem is that Nome’s harbor is iced-in, preventing the 370-foot tanker from getting to the city dock. It will have to moor offshore to transfer the 1.3 mil-

lion gallons across the ice and to fuel headers at the dock. “I think all of the precautions have been addressed,” Nome Harbormaster Joy Baker said Friday. “I think everything that should be done has been done.” For days, operations officials have looked at how best to lay the segmented fuel hose across the shore ice for the transfer. They were waiting for daylight Friday to get a better look at any changes overnight. The idea is to get the tanker in as close as possible to reduce the chance of a spill. There has been lots of anxious waiting since the ship left Russia in mid-December. It picked up diesel fuel in South Korea before traveling to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, where it took on unleaded gasoline.

A Coast Guard icebreaker escorted the tanker through the Bering Sea pack ice, the two vessels at times barely crawling along as officials looked for new techniques to get the tanker free of shifting ice. Late Thursday, the Coast Guard Cutter Healy and the Renda stopped six miles offshore to wait for daylight and figure out how to get the tanker within about a mile of the harbor so its hose will reach the dock. The state is requiring that the fuel transfer be done only in daylight hours. Nome’s northern latitude leaves it mostly hidden from the sun this time of year, meaning sunrise doesn’t come until 11:39 a.m. local time (3:39 p.m. EST), and there was to be just 5 hours and 4 minutes of sunlight Friday.

Marines pick general to handle desecration probe This image made on Thursday from undated video posted on the Internet on Wednesday by a YouTube user who identified themself as ‘semperfiLoneVoice’ shows men in U.S. Marine combat gear, standing in a semi-circle over three bodies.

By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer

WASHINGTON — The Marine Corps on Friday laid the groundwork for deciding what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken in the case of an Internet video purporting to show Marine snipers urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan. The top Marine officer, Gen. James Amos, appointed three-star Gen. Thomas Waldhauser to oversee the case. Waldhauser named another officer to do an internal Marine Corps investigation, which is in addition to a criminal probe under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Waldhauser will decide what to do as a result of the investigations. In Afghanistan, a senior US commander issued a letter to all personnel in the international coalition that is fighting the war, explicitly reminding them of the need to respect the dead. The letter from Army Lt. Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, commander of the International Security Assistance Force Joint Command, reflected the depth of

concern about fallout from the video. “Defiling, desecrating, mocking, photographing or filming for personal use insurgent dead constitutes a grave breach of the LOAC (laws of armed conflict), violate basic standards of human decency and can cause serious damage to relations with the Afghan government,” Scaparrotti wrote. He ordered all commanders to remind their subordinates of their duty to comply. No one has been charged in the case,

which triggered widespread outrage with the appearance Wednesday on YouTube of a brief video that appears to show four Marines in full combat gear urinating on the bodies of three dead men lying on the ground. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, condemned the behavior and said in a statement Friday while he was traveling in the U.S. that the facts in the case should be determined swiftly.

LAS VEGAS — A Roman Catholic priest was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison Friday for siphoning about $650,000 from his northwest Las Vegas parish to support his gambling habit. Monsignor Kevin McAuliffe, 59, made no reaction as U.S. District Court Judge James Mahan faulted him for abusing a position of trust in his congregation. Muffled sobs erupted from a courtroom packed with supporters. McAuliffe Defense attorney Margaret Stanish asked the judge for probation and to let the McAuliffe continue getting counseling for his gambling addiction, keep practicing as a priest and pay restitution to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Summerlin. But the judge added four months to the sentence recommended by Deputy U.S. Attorney Christina Brown, who said there is no reason McAuliffe should get a break. He could have received up to 60 years in prison. McAuliffe had complete control from to 2002 to 2010 of church activities and finances and was able to hide his embezzlement because he was a signatory to financial statements to the Las Vegas Diocese and Catholic Archdiocese in San Francisco, Brown said. When confronted by the FBI last May, “the defendant for two hours offered various explanations as to how his earnings supported his gambling,” she said. “When these explanations failed, agents asked the defendant if he stole money from the church, which the defendant denied.” McAuliffe pleaded guilty in October, before an indictment or criminal complaint was filed, to three counts of federal mail fraud for falsifying documents sent in 2008, 2009 and 2010 to the archdiocese. McAuliffe was removed as pastor of the northwest Las Vegas congregation of more than 8,000 families and relieved of diocese duties.

WILKES-BARRE – A woman whose face was severely slashed inside a Nanticoke bar has filed a lawsuit against the tavern and its owner, alleging employees served her underage attacker and did nothing to stop the brutal attack. Jennifer Mieczkowski of Nanticoke says Paul Halliday, owner of the Prospect Street Café, was negligent for allowing into the bar the person who Mieczkowski claims injured her, despite the fact the woman was under the legal drinking age. Police have not identified the woman who allegedly slashed Mieczkowski, but the lawsuit claims she is 20-year-old Melanie Rosario Figueroa of Nanticoke. The suit, filed Friday in Luzerne County Court by attorney David Selingo, claims Figueroa was intoxicated when she and a male, who is not identified, attacked Mieczkowski after she

have not filed charges. Selingo said Friday he does not understand why Figueroa has not been charged because Mieczkowski identified Figueroa from a photo lineup within 24 hours after the assault. “Jennifer is very frustrated. She identified the girl a long time ago and there’s been no charges yet,” Selingo said. Detective Capt. William Shultz said Friday police are continuing the investigation. A video taken from the bar’s surveillance system is now undergoing a forensic analysis at the state police lab in Harrisburg. “When we are ready to make an appropriate arrest, we will make it. These things take time,” Shultz said. Figueroa could not be reached for comment Friday. Michael Yelen, attorney for Halliday, did not immediately return a phone message left at his office Friday evening. A phone number at the bar was not operational when a reporter called Friday.

pect Street Café had been the site of nine incidents involving disturbances at or immediately adjacent to the premises and also had received 16 citations over an unspecified period of time prior to the incident. In order to renew his liquor license, Halliday entered an agreement with the Liquor Control Board that called for him to employ a security guard, provide training and to maintain a list of persons who were barred from the tavern. The lawsuit alleges the tavern failed to keep a barred patrons list. It further alleges employees permitted Figueroa to enter the bar, despite knowing that she was under the legal drinking age of 21, and that she previously had been charged with disorderly conduct for fighting and harassment. Court records filed with District Judge Donald Whittaker show a Melanie Figueroa was cited with three counts of disorderly conduct in September 2010. She was found not guilty of the charges at a hearing held on Dec. 7, 2010. The suit says Mieczkowski was in the bar for only a short time before she was attacked by Figueroa and the unidentified male, each of whom slashed her about the face and head. Mieczkowski’s friend, David Wells, tried to stop the assault. Rather than help him, a bouncer at the club dragged Wells outside the bar. A police report of the incident said Wells was beaten with a pool cue. The lawsuit does not identify who committed the alleged assault against Wells. The suit seeks damages for two counts of negligence against Halliday and the tavern.

WILKES-BARRE – A West Hazleton man charged in two different counties with having a sexual relationship with a teen over a seven-year period that resulted in the birth of two children will face a trial in Luzerne County Court. Edward Prues Gruenemeier Jr., 36, of Tamarack Street, faces a trial on April 9 on one count of endangering the welfare of children. Gruenemeier also faces a trial on March 3 in Carbon County Court on six charges relating to the case, including aggravated indecent assault, statutory sexual assault and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. According to court papers, the woman told police Gruenemeier began having sexual intercourse with her when she was 13 years old in 2002 and living in North Carolina. The woman told police in April 2011 that Gruenemeier first began inappropriately touching her, and that the abuse progressed into regular sexual intercourse between the two when the woman moved to Lebanon, Pa., and then to Hazle Township. The woman said she became pregnant with Gruenemeier’s child in December

cally assaulted her and that summer brandished a knife and threatened to cut her throat. The woman said Gruenemeier threatened to harm her if she ever reported the crimes to police, and that if he ever became incarcerated because of his crimes, he would “instruct his associates” to harm her. Deputy District Attorney Alexis Falvello said Friday that Gruenemeier has agreed to submit a DNA sample in the case. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley said Gruenemeier will be held in the Carbon County prison until the time of his trial.

then withdrew that plea in September and requested a trial. In a letter written to a Luzerne County judge in August 2011, Gruenemeier said he wanted to withdraw his plea because he is “innocent of these charges” and he was told by his attorney he would receive probation for the offense. Gruenemeier said he had rarely spoken to his previous attorney, and that was also one of the reasons he wanted to withdraw his plea. Gruenemeier now is represented by attorney David Lampman.

WILKES-BARRE – The trial of a Plymouth woman who claims she stabbed a man to death in self-defense in November 2010 is on track to begin next month, attorneys in the case said Friday. Sherry Ann Cease, 43, of Prospect Lane, faces third-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter charges in the Nov. 30 death of John Wolfe, 59. Deputy District Attorney Alexis Falvello said Friday that a plea agreement could be worked out before that time, Cease but if not, she is prepared to begin jury selection on Feb. 6. A pre-trial hearing was scheduled for Jan. 23. Cease’s attorney Demetrius Fannick and Falvello said they have no motions that need to be decided by Judge Tina Polachek Gartley. Cease’s nephew, Charles Arnold, testified at a June preliminary hearing that when he and his aunt arrived at Wolfe’s Prospect Street home on the night of the homicide, they found Cease’s belongings thrown around. Cease’s things had been packed in boxes because she was staying with Wolfe while looking for a new home. Arnold said Wolfe was upset about his television not working and asked him what was wrong with it. Arnold said he didn’t know. He said Wolfe told him, "That’s OK, because now (Cease’s) TV’s broken." Arnold said he and Cease went upstairs to her bedroom and found her TV smashed, on the floor. Arnold said he heard arguing and, when he went downstairs, saw Wolfe standing in the kitchen doorway with his back to him and his right arm outstretched toward Cease. Arnold said Wolfe’s chest was bleeding when he turned around and Wolfe walked past him toward the front of the house and he then heard his aunt call 911. Trooper Lisa Brogan, a crimi-

Nuangola approves resolution to launch sewer project NUANGOLA – Borough council voted unanimously Wednesday night for a resolution that provides a “loan guarantee” for $5.5 million in proposed funding from the Fulton National Bank of Lancaster for the long-debated Nuangola Sewer System project, which is tentatively scheduled to get under way this spring. The action was taken at a special meeting attended by only five of seven council members. Chairwoman Regina Plodwick, Tony Deluca, Ted Vancosky, Elaine Donohue and Ron Kaiser voted for the loan package resolution. Councilmen John Kochan and Joe Tucker did not attend. Council also approved an amended Act 537 plan, which has as one of its principal provisions that during the construction phase there will “no blasting” within the borough’s corporate limits. Because plans call for sewer lines to travel through Rice and Dorrance townships, a similar no-blasting provision is being considered by those municipalities.. Also according to the revised plan, the Nuangola system is to connect to the Mountaintop Area Joint System at Church Road near the Rice Elementary School; a low pressure conveyance force main will travel along Stairville

Township supervisors also voted to continue with a 5 percent contribution rate for township police toward their pension. The supervisors also presented gifts to the recipients of their annual Holiday House Contest. First-, second-, third- and fourth-place winners received gift cards from Lowe’s. Rick Connors of Bunker Hill Road said he used more than 18,000 lights to complete his holiday presentation. “My favorite part is watching people look at the lights,” said Connors. “This goes beyond just being a holiday contest; it shows the spirit of our township,” said Assistant Township Manager Robert Hivish. Supervisor Chairman James Reino noted the township had also trimmed its budget by eliminating unnecessary expenditures, including some road work. The board also voted to allow Anthracite Scenic Trails to place a kiosk on township property along the Back Mountain trail. Jones said the easement the township previously granted included the placement of the kiosk. The supervisors encouraged residents to access information on township events, ordinances and services at the township website, www.kingstontownship.com, or through the township Facebook page.

OTHER OPINION: TANGLED WEB

Until cloud clears, judge must depart

J

UST AS WATERGATE was not a third-rate burglary but a scandal that hinted at a connection with the highest office in the land, the alleged political work done by two Orie sisters on state time has hinted at a link with one of the highest judicial posts in Pennsylvania: the state Supreme Court seat won by their sister, Joan Orie Melvin, in 2009. After all, it was for the benefit of then-Superior Court Judge Melvin that both Sen. Jane Orie and her sister Janine did the campaigning using, according to the charges against them, state resources. While they face a criminal trial on Feb. 13, Justice Melvin has not been charged. The facts have surfaced slowly. The latest development came at a late December hearing on new charges filed against sister Janine, who is the justice’s de facto office manager. Three former or current staff members of Justice Melvin testified that Janine Orie spent hours of work each week as the campaign unfolded doing political chores from the judicial office. Did Justin Melvin not know this? Perhaps, but why she would not know raises reasonable suspicion and, unlike the Watergate scandal, no tape recordings are available as clues

to help solve the puzzle. But this week Pennsylvanians learned that Justice Melvin is the tarMelvin get of a grandjury investigation, as a letter last month informed her. She has yet to testify and is not charged, yet the probe changes everything. Justice Melvin simply cannot go on as if this is business as usual. While her own presumption of innocence has not changed, her continuing presence on the high court does no service to the people of Pennsylvania or the venerable institution whose reputation she is supposed to uphold. She must take a leave of absence until this black cloud is cleared. If she won’t go voluntarily while the grand jury tries to connect the all-too-prominent dots of this case, Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille should use his power to convene a fourmember majority of the court to suspend her. The praiseworthy thing for her now is to leave the court, not forever necessarily, but until this serious matter is resolved. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

QUOTE OF THE DAY “So what laws have you chosen to violate – the right-to-know law or the city charter?” Karen Ceppa Hirko The Wilkes-Barre resident this week called for Mayor Tom Leighton’s resignation because of a lack of paperwork made publicly available and the ongoing secrecy regarding the city’s purchase of three fire trucks during 2005-06. The mayor maintains an anonymous donor paid for the trucks via legal channels.

OTHER OPINION: U.S. MILITARY

Proper cuts are strategic cuts

T

HERE HASN’T BEEN such a bold call as President Obama’s for America to field a leaner, meaner military since then-Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld stated a similar goal at the beginning of the George W. Bush administration. Of course, we all know how that turned out after the Bush team broke the bank to finance wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. So perhaps no one should get overly worked up over another defense reduction plan that could just as easily be derailed. In fact, even as he and Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta announced their new strategy last week at the Pentagon, Obama offered the assurance that “the world must know the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats.” Almost everyone agrees the EDITORIAL BOARD

poor economy dictates reductions in defense spending. But preferable to ham-handed, across-the-board cuts is a strategy that considers what type of and where new wars are likely to occur. Appropriately, Obama wants to reduce the 80,000 troops in Europe and allow those countries to become more responsible for their security. The president wants to maintain a presence in the Middle East but rely more on our regional allies, including Ethiopia, to fight terrorist groups. One of the most important aspects of the new strategy is its shift of military resources to counter the growing likelihood of conflict with North Korea and, more important, China. “Our strategic challenges in the future will largely emanate from out of the Pacific region,” said Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey.

MALLARD FILLMORE

Uniform regulation would help shale industry grow REACHING AN agreement on a comprehensive Marcellus Shale oversight bill is essential to foster the industry’s growth, lower energy costs for consumers, provide appropriate environmental protections, generate adequate revenue to address local impacts, and sustain and build on the economic opportunities – both direct and indirect – that natural gas drilling is providing to Pennsylvanians. Key to the success of such oversight is the adoption of uniform regulatory standards at the state level, which would provide drillers with a clear picture of the operating environment in the commonwealth for this highly sophisticated industry. This clarity is lacking. To date, more than 115 municipalities have adopted more than 145 different ordinances ranging from landuse limitations to road-use restrictions to noise limits to well setback requirements. Many are designed to ban drilling activity altogether. And local ordinance activity is increasing. Since Oct. 1 of last year, 27 municipalities in 11 counties have considered or adopted oil and gas industry regulations. Having been a local government official in southeastern Pennsylvania for 10 years, I recognize and value the importance of our local government system, which provides valuable services to the commonwealth’s communities and citizens. But, in my role at the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, I have seen the adverse impact that multi-municipal jurisdictions can have, as well as the impact of inconsistent, arbitrary local rules and regulations. Regardless of the industry, job creators

MAIL BAG

COMMENTARY GENE BARR above all else want and need a predictable operating climate. They want to know the rules and the potential costs. It was this very uncertainty about proposed policies and regulations emanating from Washington, D.C., that led many employers to hold back on investing in their operations and workforce as the nation struggled to emerge from one of the worst recessions in memory. Similarly, the confusion resulting from a hodgepodge of existing and emerging local ordinances, even if well-intended, make it very difficult for drillers operating in multiple jurisdictions to be in compliance and to effectively and efficiently operate. And without uniform operating rules, competing states are marketing their more competitive and predictable shale producing climates in order to attract capital and jobs from Pennsylvania. The Marcellus Shale industry already is generating measurable economic benefits for areas of the state in which drilling is occurring. From March 2010 to March 2011, Washington County – home to the first Marcellus well – had the third-highest percent increase in employment in the nation, according to the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Williamsport, according to the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis, was the seventh fastest growing metropolitan area in the country in 2010 (as measured by percentage change in real gross domestic product). In other areas of the commonwealth, local

Regardless of the industry, job creators above all else want and need a predictable operating climate. economies are benefiting through ancillary business opportunities. In a recent series of statewide Marcellus Shale forums hosted by the Pennsylvania Chamber Education Foundation and local chambers of commerce, attendees heard from companies – many that do not have their primary locations in drilling regions – that are expanding their operations and hiring because of their support work for the industry. And increased natural gas production is helping consumers by delivering cheaper natural gas, such as the recent rate cut of more than 13 percent announced by UGI. But, the longer the oversight debate drags on and the longer drillers face rules that differ from municipality to municipality, the less investment, energy savings, jobs and revenue will be realized. It is essential that industry oversight be done right and be done quickly. Companies involved in Marcellus Shale drilling here strive to make sure they are in full compliance with laws and regulations; and people living in communities where drilling activity is taking place want assurance that those companies are following the rules. The best way to ensure both and enable the commonwealth to reap the greatest economic benefits from the industry is to adopt rules that are consistent. Gene Barr is president and CEO of the Harrisburgbased Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry. For information, visit www.pachamber.org.

I

ask those people in Luzerne County who have lost faith in our local government to open their eyes and reconsider. As of Jan. 2, the Luzerne County Council has been put into place, as chosen by county residents to pursue home-rule government. This has been done in an effort to create a new start for our county. The members of this council have been left with the task of restoring credibility and solving the financial crisis; this will not be easy to take on or quick to fix. The problems that occurred prior to the establishment of the council did not happen overnight, and surely these issues cannot be fixed overnight. County residents must remember that the solution to our problems, especially regarding a practical budget, require time and compromise. With the members of the council working together, I believe that our county can have a new start in this new year. Claire McCallick Dorrance Township

Preserve fossil fuels and save our society

I

n today’s society, our government and most Americans are almost completely dependent on fossil fuels. Only a few cars have been made that use electricity, but most also need gas and need recharging often. Almost always, these cars are more expensive, and the average American can’t afford them. Our car manufacturers need to think of ways to make these cars more efficient. The current cost of oil is about $101 per barrel, making an average gallon of gas cost $3.38. These fossil fuels are non-renewable resources. This means that once

DOONESBURY

the total supply is used up, there is no more left. Once this happens, our society will be devastated. There are a few simple things you can do to reduce the amount of fossil fuel used: Buy food that is locally produced, avoid buying processed food (which takes more energy to make), install solar panels and walk instead of taking the car. There are many easy things you can do to help the planet and our economy. Melanie Snyder Wright Township

Crèche-less Christmas devoid of true meaning

O

n New Year’s Eve, I attended Mass at a Catholic church in Exeter. I entered the church and looked around for the crèche. There wasn’t any. I couldn’t believe it. After calling the bishop’s office, I was told the option to display a crèche is left to the individual church. I pray the priests of the diocese never deprive the people of the true meaning of Christmas by not displaying a crèche. Barbara Mackachinas Exeter

Suddenly, Trinity’s grandmother suffered an asthma attack brought on by bronchitis. Though she suffers from asthma, the 51-year-old Eddy had never experienced an attack as severe as this one, which made breathing so difficult she struggled to make a desperate appeal to the only person who could help. “I said, ‘Trinity, I can’t breathe,’ ” Eddy recalled. “She took it over from there.” Trinity answered all of the 9-1-1 operator’s questions, allowing paramedics to locate her grandmother and respond swiftly. “She made the call and stayed on with them the whole time,” Eddy said. Though she never lost consciousness, Eddy needed emergency treatment from paramedics before she was transported to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, said Guido, who described the importance of Trinity’s action in no uncertain terms. “I talked to the medics on duty,” he said. “They said, no doubt, she had difficulty breathing; she would have died.”

Since 1968, Smith has watched all but the first episode of “OLTL,” which was created by the famed Agnes Nixon. “I loved that show and I’m sad to see it go, but I will watch ‘The Revolution.’ No matter how old we are it’s always good to learn something new. You have to welcome change,” said Smith. Others, however, weren’t as open to the idea. Dolores Brown, 80, of Kingston, who said she has watched every episode of “OLTL” in its four-decade-plus run, was one of those people. “The other senior citizens and I aren’t interested in watching ‘The Revolution.’ At 80 years old, I’m not interested in changing my life; I’m happy with my life.

Hazleton spent $8,127 for snow and ice materials in the last quarter of 2011 versus $16,000 in the last quarter of 2010, she said. And, Hazleton saved18 percent on heating costs in that same time frame, paying $2,334 less in the last quarter of 2011 than in 2010, when heat cost $12,420. Streets Department Foreman Frank Vito said the city paid snow-removal contractors $100,000 in 2010, but nothing in 2011 because although it snowed a lot in early 2011, storms only dumped 3 to 4 inches at a time. Add up all the savings and that means more money for paving streets in 2012, Lieb said. For smaller municipalities, a mild winter can amount to rela-

Guido also said Trinity’s action demonstrates the effectiveness of the educational outreach efforts of the municipal fire department, which sends firefighters to speak to elementary school classes and annually invites each school to use a fire safety simulator that teaches kids how to escape a house fire. “That’s our whole thing: 9-1-1; know your name; know your

How does it feel to know she saved a life? “Good,” she said. Crisis averted, she’s returned to her quiet self. But her classmates recognize what she did. “Good job, Trinity,” a wee one piped up after the class showered her with a round of applause. Good job indeed.

ber of the Facebook group SWAN (Standing With Agnes Nixon). McMann took offense at advertisements promoting “The Revolution” during the “OLTL” tribute show on “The View” and Friday’s final episode. She labeled it as “sickening.” “How could they have a tribute to ‘OLTL’ and advertise the show that is taking its place? That’s ridiculous,” said McMann. Many people feel lost and are unsure how to fill the void that “OLTL” has left in their daily routines. Jennifer Tershak, 38, of Mountain Top, said she has hope after hearing some of her favorite characters will be moving to “GH.” “I hope that ‘OLTL’ fans will

The soap opera “One Life to Live” debuted on the ABC television network on July 15, 1968. Created by Agnes Nixon, the series was the first daytime drama to have a plot line that emphasized social issues and included racially and socio-economically diverse characters. “OLTL” introduced Polish, Jewish and African-American characters, and it is credited with having the first interracial relationship on daytime television. The show was popular and was expanded from 30 minutes to 45 minutes on July 26, 1976, and then to a full hour on Jan. 13, 1978. The series won an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 2002.

The show focused on the members and relationships of the Lord family. Actress Erika Slezak has portrayed original and central heroine Victoria “Viki” Lord since March 1971 and has won a record six Daytime Emmy Awards for the role. On April 14, 2011, ABC announced that it planned to cancel the series. On July 7, production company Prospect Park announced that it would continue the show as a web series after its run on ABC, but later suspended the project due to numerous complications. The final scenes of “One Life to Live” were taped on Nov.18 and it aired Friday. ABC is replacing the soap opera with health and lifestyle show, “The Revolution.”

tune in to ‘GH’ so we can continue to keep at least one ABC soap alive,” said Tershak. Price recalled taping “OLTL” for 25 years to watch when she got home from work. “Now that the show is canceled, I’ll have nothing to watch when I get off of work. I will not

be taping ‘The Revolution,’ but I will watch ‘GH’ as long as the ‘OLTL’ characters are still on the show.” “My mother watched it, I’ve watched it and my kids were raised on it,” Vrabel said. “I have no idea what to do from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. anymore.”

months since Paterno’s firing Nov. 9 has roiled many graduates. “Honestly, I feel like I was given the company line,” Virginia Alvarez, a lawyer from the Class of 1997 who asked the question about due process, said afterward. “I don’t feel like we have the answers. I think the people who need to call into question are the Board of Trustees. Show us the minutes of those meetings.” Erickson emphasized that the trustees are his bosses, and not the other way around. Appointed president after the scandal also cost Graham Span-

ier his job, Erickson plans to retire in 2014. He reiterated that he supported the trustees’ decision to fire Paterno. “There comes a time to look at more than legal issues and look at the ability to lead, and I think at that point ability to lead was compromised,” he said. “That in no way should reflect my feelings about the wonderful things Joe has contributed over the years.” Erickson offered his best wishes to Paterno, saying he was “very sad” to hear the Hall of Famer was readmitted to the hospital Friday with complications from his treatment for lung cancer.

The 67-year-old Sandusky is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period. He maintains his innocence. A charity he founded, The Second Mile, through which he met many of his alleged victims, said Friday it was selling a 60-acre property where it had been building an educational center. Two Penn State administrators are facing charges they lied to a grand jury investigating Sandusky and failed to properly report suspected child abuse. Gary Schultz, a former vice president, and Tim Curley, the athletic director, have denied the allegations and await trial.

tively huge savings. Dallas Township Secretary Nancy Balutis said the township paid its road crew $517 in overtime this past December compared to $10,460 in overtime in December 2010. And the township’s December heating bill dropped from $1,028 in 2010 to $637 in 2011. “Hopefully, we’ll be saving more (in January),” Balutis said. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation also saved a huge chunk of change this winter. Last winter, the state spent $55.3 million on snow and ice removal through Dec. 31, 2010. This winter, PennDOT spent 32 percent less, a mere $37.8 million, said spokesman Jim Struzzi. “Any savings rolls into additional miles of road improvements. Likewise, if winter throws us some heavy blows, we’ll use funds from our spring road maintenance to cover it,” Struzzi said. “Obviously, we are reaping some savings this year, but it’s important to note we still have two months to go.”

to the equation and running is different for us,” said Margolies. It’s not better or worse, just “a difference we bring to the table,” added Margolies, who also is head of the advocacy training organization Women’s Campaign International. The school acknowledged it stood with the bishop in oppositiontoherviewsonabortion,but welcomed her and the expertise she brings to the conference. “Speakers for this University event are experts chosen to provide women with information about the challenges of politics; they are not chosen to engage in a discussion of abortion. By inviting these speakers to campus, the University is not endorsing their personal views,” said Quinn in a prepared statement. Bambera supported the purpose of the conference, but opposed having Margolies participate at

it.

“Although a forum such as this, designed to support and encourage women to engage in public service, is by its nature good and noble, for a Catholic institution in the Diocese of Scranton to invite a pro-abortion advocate to speak at a University sponsored event is dismaying and personally disheartening to me,” he said in a prepared statement. At least one protest was planned against Margolies. Jim Burke, a local entrepreneur who described himself as an orthodox Catholic and member of The Cardinal Newman Society, whose mission is to renew and strengthen Catholic identity in Catholic higher education, said he felt called to action. “She may have trouble getting through into the building. I intend to have hundreds of pickets there, declaring The University of Scranton for what it is – secular, not Catholic,” said Burke. Staff writer Mary Therese Biebel contributed to this report.

Ties with Sen. Casey Holden, whose father played baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1930s and also did a stint with the Wilkes-Barre Barons, said his family and the Casey family of Scranton have been friends since 1966. “Sen. (Bob) Casey is a dear friend,” Holden said. “He’s told me he will help me in this campaign.” Casey is running for his second 6-year term in the U.S. Senate this year. Holden’s district has about 707,000 residents – 75 percent of them live in areas new to the 17th District. But Holden isn’t worried that voters may see him as an outsider. “I’m from Schuylkill County, and we consider ourselves part of Northeastern Pennsylvania,” Holden said. “We are in the same media market. I’m the proud son of the coal region.” When asked whether residents in Scranton would feel the same way, he responded: “I guess we’ll find out.” Holden is the dean of the Pennsylvania delegation in Congress. He sits on two House committees: he is second in seniority among Democrats on the House Agriculture Committee and eighth on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Barletta, R-Hazleton, also sits on that committee. Holden doesn’t expect much to get done in Congress during this presidential election year. All 435 House members are up for reelection, but Holden doesn’t expect the Democrats to wrest the majority back from the GOP. Holden said the $230 billion Highway Bill needs to be passed by March 31, but he’s not optimistic. He said the measure, if ap-

SALTS Continued from Page 1A

Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, said he recently has seen more people coming into the emergency room suffering the effects of bath salts. “We have definitely seen a surge in the numbers in the Saylor last week or two,” Saylor said. “Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had a few each week, but it wasn’t as bad as when bath salts were on the shelf.” Dr. Keith G. Vrabeck, a Geisinger emergency physician, testified at a court hearing in April that more than 100 people had been treated in the ER in the first four months of 2011. An undercover narcotics officer said bath salts are being sold on the street for $100 for a halfgram. The same amount was selling for $35 to $40 when the synthetic substance was legally sold in early 2011. Traditional salts used for bathing sell for about $2 a container. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the active ingredient in synthetic

In addition, and on a local level, The Commonwealth Medical College will work with the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Plains Township, said Ida L.

Castro said the college currently assigns each student to a family in the region for their four years of training so they can learn what a family goes through during extended medical treatment. She hopes more students

proved, could inject $10 billion into Pennsylvania’s highway system. Holden said Republican House Speaker John Boehner operates the same way Democratic leader Pelosi did – he won’t bring anything to the floor unless there is agreement of the majority of GOP members. He said the GOP also won’t support earmarks – something Holden said is helpful in directing federal funding for needed state projects. “Ruling from the extreme is never good for the American people,” he said. Other issues • Holden said Democrats were not part of the redistricting discussions. He said Republican Barletta wanted to keep all of Luzerne County in the 11th District, but Holden ended up with it. Because of gerrymandering, he said he has to drive through other congressional districts to get to parts of the new 17th district. “I didn’t know I was getting Luzerne County until 10 days before the vote. I also got Easton – nobody saw that coming,” he said. • On President Obama, Holden said he inherited the “worst fiscal situation since the Great Depression.” “(Obama) should have focused on the economy,” Holden said. • Holden voted for the economic stimulus bill and against the health care bill, saying it should have been presented incrementally rather than as an allat-once measure. • He supports maintaining Medicare and Social Security. “The burden of balancing the budget shouldn’t be placed on the backs of senior citizens,” he said. Medicare is a more challenging dilemma due to the constant rise in health care costs, he said. • Holden currently has four district offices and if funding isn’t cut, he will keep four offices, but he wouldn’t say where, if re-elected, he would locate them. As far as his job is concerned, Holden said he will work hard for all of his constituents. “I’ll be accessible,” he said. “I’ll be visible and open-minded.” bath salts – MDPV – is related to ecstasy and another ingredient, Methadrone, is a stimulant similar to methamphetamine. Saylor said adverse effects of bath salts include extreme paranoia, hallucinations, rapid heart rate, disorientation and suicidal thoughts. “People take it to get high,” Saylor said. “It’s a stimulant, and it’s addictive. It causes very intense paranoia, they get intense delusions, and due to those, we’re seeing suicidal attempts from the extreme paranoia.” Bath salts are known by a variety of names, including red dove, cloud nine, white lightning, purple wave and vanilla sky. “Bath salts causes extreme heart rates and blood pressure fluctuations and temperatures,” Saylor said. “That could be extremely life threatening.” He said there have been no reported deaths locally due to bath salts, noting two people in Louisiana under the influence of bath salts took their own lives recently. On Monday, the Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation charged Bridgette F. Campbell, 25, of White Haven, with selling a substance she purported to be methamphetamine but was chemically tested to be MDPV, which was banned last year. will be assigned to military families through the medical center. Castro believes students and faculty will “benefit from the expertise” of VA doctors and staff, and the school will conduct continuing education courses for area medical professionals that focus on the needs of veterans and those in military service. The college also will enhance its current curriculum to include training in the “unique clinical challenges and best practices” of working with military patients and their families, she said. “We recognize that this region has an enormous number of heroes that have given so much for us and we’re very pleased to join the (other schools) in partnering with the First Lady and Dr. Biden on this endeavor,” Castro said.

That leaves one job still left open under the NCAA’s limit of nine assistant coaches. Penn State said O’Brien is still “in the process of determining the Nittany Lions’ quarterbacks coach.” Penn State will not name an offensive coordinator, as O’Brien has said he will handle playcalling duties on offense in the first year. Larry Johnson and Ron Vanderlinden are the only coaches still aboard from Joe Paterno’s staff. Out of the six new hires, Roof is both the most recognizable and the one who will prompt the most debate. O’Brien called Roof, 48, one of his “closest friends,” having coached with him at Georgia Tech and Duke. The two men were top assistants with the Yellow Jackets under George O’Leary, spending four seasons together (1998-2001) in Atlanta.

Injuries can’t halt WVW win streak By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

PLYMOUTH — When the starting backcourt has one guy wearing a sling and another with a bandage wrapped around a hand, it’s certainly not a good thing. Wyoming Valley West, though, has dealt with adversity this season and was able to do so again Friday night. Thanks in part to the contributions of seldom-used sophomore guards Jamie Calloway and Saabir Gibson, the Spartans won their sixth straight, beating Holy Redeemer 53-47 in a key Wyoming Valley Conference interdivisional boys basketball game.

To reach the national level, Seely first had to compete for local, sectional and NFL team championships.

Yankees trade Montero to Mariners for Pineda

SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners agreed to trade right-hander Michael Pineda to the New York Yankees for catcher Jesus Montero on Friday, a swap involving two of baseball’s top young talents.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Paterno readmitted to hospital

South Florida earns upset of Seton Hall

Former coach’s family cites minor complications from treatments for lung cancer. By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

STATE COLLEGE — Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno was admitted to the hospital Friday for observation due to minor complications from cancer treatments, his family said. In a statement released to The Associated Press, his family said that the 85-year-old Paterno continues to undergo a “regimen of treatments” after being diagnosed two months ago with what they have termed a treatable form of lung cancer. The family hoped his latest stay would be brief. He most recently was in the hospital last month after re-breaking his pel-

just one game in those two seasons, and Roof was fired after the 2007 campaign with a 6-45 record. “We didn’t win many games, but we sure fought as hard as we could,” O’Brien said. O’Brien and Roof worked with Hixon and McWhorter at Georgia Tech and later with London and Strollo at Duke. Most of Roof’s publicity, however, came in the past three seasons as the defensive coordinator at Auburn. Roof helped lead the Tigers to the 2010 national championship, most notably holding a dynamic Oregon offense in check in the title game. But Auburn’s defense was poor statistically under Roof, hitting a low point in 2011 with a young unit. The Tigers allowed more than 400 yards per game this past regular season, the worst average in program history. In December, Roof left the Tigers before their bowl game to take the same position at Central Florida under his old mentor O’Leary. Just a few weeks later, his plans changed again when O’Brien asked him to come to Penn State. In all certainty, Roof will be scrutinized and compared to his popular predecessor, Tom Bradley. Bradley spent the past 33 years coaching for the team and was an easy choice as interim coach in November when Paterno was fired. Unlike many of his fellow Penn State coaches, Bradley would not say he was interested in returning to the staff as an assistant under a new head coach. While prominent assistants like Johnson and Jay Paterno expressed their desire to stay, Bradley said, “I’m not sure about that. … I’m sure there will be some other opportunities.” One of a handful of Penn State-

retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Paterno, a witness before a grand jury investigating Sandusky, is not a target of the criminal investigation. Sandusky has denied wrongdoing. He is out on a bail and confined to house arrest while awaiting trial. Paterno initially announced his retirement at the end of the season on the morning of Nov. 9. That day, he called the scandal “one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.” The trustees fired him about 12 hours later in a hastily called news conference. In a statement Thursday, trustees cited the serious allegations and “extraordinary circumstances” in referring to the board’s unanimous decision “that Coach Paterno could not be expected to continue to effectively perform

his duties and that it was in the best interests of the University to make an immediate change in his status.” Paterno remains employed as a tenured faculty member, and details of his retirement were being worked out and would be made public when finalized. The university intends to honor Paterno’s contract as if he had retired at the end of the 2011 football season, the trustees said. In response, Paterno’s son Scott said in a separate statement that “As has become apparent, the termination on November 9, with no notice or hearing, was not handled well. “Joe Paterno has reiterated from the beginning that the first priority in this crisis is to serve the best interests of the victims,” Scott Paterno continued. “He believes strongly that everyone involved is entitled to due process.”

In-depth: Under Roof, Penn State’s defense will certainly be different. For years, the Lions have relied predominately on zone coverages and the defensive line to generate most of the pass rush. In 10 previous seasons as a defensive coordinator, Roof has a reputation of more aggressive defenses, utilizing more blitzes and man-to-man coverage. His statistical struggles

at Auburn, despite the 2010 national title, reportedly came from philosophical differences with Tigers head coach Gene Chizik, a former defensive coordinator himself. One imagines Roof will have more free reign under O’Brien, whose background is on offense. The challenge will be integrating with veteran assistants Larry Johnson and Ron Vanderlinden, who have spent more than a decade doing things a certain way with Tom Bradley leading the defense. This is the second time Roof has left a job without coaching a game. He was with UCF for only a few weeks and previously spent a month and change as linebackers coach at Louisville before getting a better opportunity at Minnesota. Though his head coaching career was forgettable at best (6-45 at Duke), Roof had a history of improving defenses as a coordinator before his mixed results at Auburn.

JOHN BUTLER

rs to interview for the full-time job, Bradley was informed Jan. 6 by acting athletic director Dave Joyner that he would not be Paterno’s successor. Bradley told the Big Ten Network this week that he did not interview with O’Brien for a spot on the new staff. He said he had nothing in the works as far as coaching and may look into options in broadcasting. “Finished packing up my office late last night,” Bradley wrote on his Twitter account Friday. “Walked out the doors proud with a lot of great memories and friends and a better man.” While serving as defensive coordinator since 2000, Bradley al-

so worked directly with Penn State’s cornerbacks. That job will now fall to Butler, who will oversee the entire secondary. Butler, 38, comes to the Lions from South Carolina, where he served as special teams coordinator and worked with the “spurs” – the Gamecocks’ linebacker/safety hybrid position. The Philadelphia native coached one season with Roof at Minnesota in 2008. As for the final spot on the staff, reports had Patriots offensive assistant George Godsey as a candidate to leave New England along with O’Brien, whom he played quarterback for at Georgia Tech. But that may have changed re-

vis following a fall at home. That stay also allowed Paterno to continue taking his cancer treatments, which have included radiation and chemotherapy. Paterno had previously hurt his pelvis when he got accidentally hit in practice in August, forcing him to spend most of the regular season coaching from the press box. “Although these issues have been challenging for Coach Paterno and his family, he has total confidence in his doctors and is determined to make a full recovery,” the family said in the statement, which came shortly after The Washington Post announced it would be publishing an exclusive interview with Paterno today, his first since scandal erupted around him. School trustees fired Paterno on Nov. 9 in the aftermath of child sex abuse charges against TED ROOF

In-depth: When word came out that Butler was headed to Penn State, the very first thing that jumped out was his work as a special teams coach for the past 11 seasons. During that same stretch, the Nittany Lions had no dedicated special teams coach, splitting the duties amongst the staff. For now, however, Butler has only been put in charge of defensive backs with no word how Bill O’Brien will handle special teams. Butler made an impression on new defensive coordinator Ted Roof when the two worked together at Minnesota in 2008.

Crosby returns to ice, still fighting symptoms The Associated Press

SUNRISE, Fla. — Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated Friday for the first time in more than a month, and his teammates left little doubt they’re behind their captain as he continues to recover from a recurrence of concussion-like symptoms. The Penguins taped a “C” on each of their practice jerseys in tribute to Crosby, who hasn’t played since Dec. 5 after the symptoms that kept him sidelined for nearly a year returned. Crosby joined the rest of the team on the ice for the final 30 minutes of a morning skate before Friday night’s game against the Florida Panthers, shooting a few pucks and making a few passes. While Crosby called his return a “positive,” he’s still uncertain when he’ll be cleared to practice, let alone play. “The symptoms are getting a

lot better, but I wouldn’t say (I’m) symptom free,” Crosby said. The 24-year-old Crosby suffered similar symptoms last January and missed more than 10 months. He returned in spectacular fashion on Nov. 21, scoring a

pair of goals against the New York Islanders. He tallied 12 points in eight games before the symptoms returned after a 3-1 loss to Boston. The Penguins have struggled to find the net without their cap-

tain, managing just six goals during their current six-game losing streak, a slide that’s dropped a team considered a Stanley Cup contender two months ago into the bottom half of the Eastern Conference. Doctors have cleared Crosby for “light exertion,” and he was clearly out of breath when he addressed reporters shortly after leaving the ice. While acknowledging skating is “better than being on a bike” there are restraints on what he can do. Crosby admitted to having dizziness and balance problems, though the bigger issue remains how his body reacts when he’s moving. “The motion stuff has kind of been the issue from the time before and going through it a bit now,” he said. “The good thing is I have a pretty good handle on it.”

In addition, another person familiar with the agreement told the AP the Yankees had reached a deal with free agent pitcher Hiroki Kuroda on a $10 million contract for one season. The 36-year-old righty was 13-16 with a 3.07 ERA for the Dodgers last season. Kuroda’s contract is pending a physical.

Needless to say, she did her fair share of work to get there “I like to practice once a week,” Seely said. “If it was nice out, I’d practice at Crispin Field or the soccer fields at Salem (Elementary). If it wasn’t, I would practice in the gym.” Seely is a multi-sport athlete, having played basketball, soccer and running track for Berwick. But with no fall sports for her to play, she decided to try kicking for the freshman football team and was part of a 10-0 season. Seely said it was a new experience for her to try and she hopes to be kicking again next year as a sophomore, this time for the varsity team. Football is nothing new to Seely, as her father, Keith Seely, is the defensive coordinator for the Bulldogs varsity team.

“It’s been a great experience for her,” Keith Seely said. “She’s done it the last four years and this is her first year in nationals, so it’s one more life experience for her.” Being a kicker, Olivia Seely admitted that it has been her punting that has seen significant improvement, thanks to her dedication. “My punts have been good,” Olivia Seely said. “They go the furthest.” Another local athlete that she may bump into is Nanticoke’s Alec Norton, son of Todd and Sherri Norton. Norton will be competing in the Boys 12-13 Division in the national championships. “I’m a little bit nervous,” Norton said. “I’ll just try to do my best. It’s pretty good I got this far. If I win the thing, it’ll be really good.” The winners of the Punt, Pass and Kick national championship will be announced Sunday.

HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMING

Pittston Area girls remain undefeated in Division 3 By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

EXETER — Oddly enough, Pittston Area’s cross-river divisional rivalry with Wyoming Area contributed to the Patriots’ recent success in the pool. In coach Amy Hazlet’s first three seasons at the helm, the Patriots battled the Warriors year-in and year-out for the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 3 girls swimming championship. Past the midway point of the season, Pittston Area finds itself sitting at the top of the division after an unfamiliarly comfortable 151-48 victory over Wyoming Area Friday. “This is the first time I’ve ever gotten sleep before one of these

Warriors meets,” said Hazlet. “It’s strangely unnerving.” With a 5-0 record and a onemeet lead over second-place Meyers, Hazlet and her Pittston Area team won’t sleep easy for long. The Patriots and Warriors experienced contrasting offseasons. Pittston Area returned nearly its entire team from a year ago, while Wyoming Area lost three-fourths of its district-medaling 200-medley relay team to graduation. “We can relate to them,” said Hazlet. “We’re going to be in that position next year. We’re losing 15 seniors.” Pittston Area senior Samantha Scialpi claimed two individual

victories, posting wins in the 50 free and 100 back. Tiffany Smith and Sarah Kosik placed second and third, respectively, in the 50 back for a crucial sweep in the short-distance race. “Sam has been swimming very well to do well at districts this year,” Hazlet said. “She’s very determined, and she’s our most experienced swimmer. She’s been helping a lot with the younger girls.” On a team chock full of senior experience, freshman Mia Nardone joined Scialpi as a multirace winner. Nardone forged a massive lead in the 200 IM, winning the race by nearly 50 meters with a time of 2:28.35. Wyoming Area’s Amy Adler

edged out the Patriots’ Nina Fischer in the 500 free, clocking in at 6:46.72. After trailing for three lengths during the entire race, Adler accelerated down the stretch, passing Fischer on the final turn and holding onto her lead for the final 25 meters. The Warriors also garnered a win on the diving board. Kiersten Lasher utilized more difficult dives late in the contest to secure a tight victory over the Patriots’ Sierra Williams and Ashley Beers Fischer earned a first-place finish in the 200 free, touching the wall at 2:04.68. Pittston Area showed its true depth by claiming the top spot in all three relay races. In the 200 free relay, Scialpi swam the first

HONOLULU — Graham DeLaet has never been happier to be on the PGA Tour, and it showed Thursday in the Sony Open. One year after back surgery that made him wonder if he could ever play golf again, DeLaet chipped in for eagle and twice holed 35-foot birdie putts for a 7-under 63 that gave the Canadian a two-shot lead among the early starters. Carl Pettersson and former Sony Open champion K.J. Choi were among those at 65, while Webb Simpson was at 66. “I’m just so excited to be back out,” DeLaet said. “I had a good season my rookie campaign, and then it was all basically just taken away. And I realize now how fortunate we are to be playing golf for a living. My whole attitude is definitely better.” His game looked to be in pretty good shape, too. Thursday was a gentle start of the season in the first full-field tournament of the year on the PGA Tour. Kapalua winner Steve Stricker was among those who played in the afternoon. DeLaet surged to the top of the leaderboard when he chipped in from just short of the green on the par-5 ninth, then

holed a 35-foot birdie putt on the 10th and hit his approach to 6 feet on the 12th for another birdie. He took the outright lead with birdies on the last two holes, getting up-and-down from just short of the green on the par-5 18th. At this time a year ago, he was a week removed from surgery on his lower back, which included shaving part of his disk to keep it from pressing against a nerve. The Sony Open offers pleasant scenery on TV, but he couldn’t stand to watch. “It took me a couple of months before I could even watch golf,” he said. Surgery took care of the pain, and DeLaet tried to return in the summer in the two tournaments sandwiched around the U.S. Open. His next start was supposed to be the AT&T National at Aronimink, but after playing a few holes before the Wednesday pro-am, he realized he was trying to get back too soon. “I think I wanted to be there so bad that I felt that I was better physically than I actually was,” DeLaet said. “I just knew that it’s hard enough to compete out here when you’re healthy, and I just knew that I wasn’t in good enough shape to compete.” For the moment, he feels great.

Sixers, Meeks crush Wizards Penguins end 6-game losing skid The Associated Press

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Jodie Meeks tied a career high with 26 points, Lou Williams had 19 and Spencer Hawes added 10 points and 10 rebounds to help the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Washington Wizards 120-89 on Friday night. Led by their usual balanced offense, the Sixers led by 34 points in the third quarter and crushed the NBA-worst Wizards. All five starters reached double-digit scoring for the Atlantic Division leaders. They won for the seventh time in eight games overall and improved to 5-0 at home. While the Sixers dominated the entire game, the real damage was done in the third quarter. They made 16 of 23 shots from the floor and outscored the Wizards by 20. Meeks finished 10 of 11 from the floor and 6 of 7 from 3-point range.

SUNRISE, Fla. — Evgeni Malkin scored late in the second period and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Florida Panthers 4-1 Friday night. Steve Sullivan Tyler Kennedy, and James Neal also scored as the Penguins snapped a six-game losing streak, their longest since 2006, and got their first multigoal effort in the past six games. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots. Michal Repik scored a goal and Scott Clemmensen made 37 saves for Florida. After a scoreless opening period, the Penguins took a 1-0 lead on Sullivan’s goal at 1:49 of the second. Malkin made it 2-0 with an unassisted score with 35 seconds to go in the period. After Kennedy stretched the lead 36 seconds into the third, Repik got the Panthers on the board at the 6:55 mark.

Pistons 98, Bobcats 81 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jonas Jerebko tied a career high with 22 points and the Detroit Pistons won the race to three victories Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, 98-81. Both teams entered the game with identical 2-9 records and on lengthy losing streaks: the Bobcats having lost five straight and the Pistons six in a row. The Pistons were able to snap their streak behind the inside play of Jerebko and Greg Monroe, who chipped in with 19 points and nine rebounds. The Pistons dominated inside, scoring 50 points in the paint through the first three quarters to open a 78-59 lead.

NFL

St. Louis preparing to name Fisher head coach After sitting out a year, the long-time former Titans boss is set to take over the Rams.

Miller told The Associated Press. “I figured that because he wanted a little more control that Miami was probably not the place for him. I’m really pumped.” Fisher inherits a franchise with a recent history of futility. The Rams have totaled just 15 victories the last five seasons under Scott Linehan, interim coach Jim Haslett and Spagnuolo. On the plus side: Although the 49ers won 13 games this year, the NFC West is perhaps the weakest division in the NFL. The Seahawks won it last year despite a 7-9 record, beating the Rams in a

tiebreaker. St. Louis opted for an experienced hand after failing with Spagnuolo, a former defensive coordinator who was just 10-38 in three seasons. The Rams interviewed several assistant coaches, including Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski on Thursday in Denver, and were en route to San Francisco to interview Saints assistant Aaron Kromer when news of the deal surfaced. Fisher won at least 12 games four times, and his career record is 142-120 (.542).

head coaching job. The team said Friday it was finalizing a deal to hire the veteran coach who sat out the 2011 season after 17 years in

Tennessee. The 53-year-old Fisher interviewed twice with the Rams, once in Denver with owner Stan Kroenke and again in St. Louis when he toured facilities and met with quarterback Sam Bradford. Fisher is widely considered the

top prize in this winter’s coaching-search sweepstakes. His long stint in Tennessee included a Super Bowl matchup against the Rams in 2000 in which Tennessee fell 1 yard shy of forcing overtime in a 23-16 loss. The Titans won three division titles and made six playoff appearances under Fisher, who stepped down a year ago as the league’s longest-tenured coach, saying he needed a break. St. Louis’ offer may have trumped Miami’s for several reasons. Bradford was the No. 1 overall pick in 2010 and is considered

In addition, Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff is the son of Fisher’s agent, Marvin Demoff. The Rams might offer more power, too. The franchise is replacing both coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney, while the Dolphins have GM Jeff Ireland in place. “I’m pumped,” fullback Britt

and safety Dashon Goldson have six interceptions apiece. “With two good defenses, I don’t think it’s going to be high scoring,” Rogers said. “That’s what everybody wants to see because it’s the Saints. We don’t give up a lot of points.” The Saints scored three rushing touchdowns against the Lions, two by Darren Sproles and another from Pierre Thomas. That’s as many as San Francisco gave up during the season, all in the last two games. New Orleans is three-point favorites and can already envision that premier matchup with defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay in the NFC championship game next weekend. Yet Saints coach Sean Payton insists his team found out the hard way last year and doesn’t want to fall in another upset after losing the wild-card game to Seattle. “When you finish the season and you finish with a tough loss, that’s something you remember and you really remember forever,” Payton said. “There are certain things you learn from.

They had 38 takeaways to only 10 turnovers for a plus-28 turnover differential, which matched the 2010 Patriots for the secondbest mark in NFL history since 1941. “All the major statistics, they rank very high,” Saints wideout Marques Colston said. “I think the No. 1 thing they do is cause turnovers. So obviously that’s going to be first and foremost for us this week.” Alex Smith, the 27-year-old 2005 No. 1 overall pick, took care of the ball and threw for 3,150 yards and 17 touchdowns — hardly Brees-like numbers. “I really don’t care. I’m looking to outscore him. He can throw for however many yards he wants to,” Smith said. “A lot of different ways to win games in this league.

ST. LOUIS — Almost two weeks after they put away the helmets and shoulder pads, the St. Louis Rams picked up their third win of a dismal season. The Rams prevailed in a high stakes head-to-head competition with the Miami Dolphins and landed Jeff Fisher for their vacant

any time there’s anything new — he’s obviously new (and) he’s done some incredible things this season. I think the hype is justified.” If Tebow can stun the odds makers who have made the Broncos 13 1⁄2-point underdogs, the attention will grow heading into the AFC championship game. Forecasters are predicting the coldest day of the winter with temperatures in the single digits Saturday night. Tebow, who played four seasons at Florida, hasn’t been in many games below 20 degrees. “I’d say probably a handful,” he said, “not as many as Mr. Brady has, probably.” The Patriots, winners of eight straight but losers of their last three in the playoffs —thelasttwoathome—beattheBroncos on Dec. 18 in Denver, 41-23. New England (13-3) gave up 167 yards rushing in the first quarter and trailed 16-7 early in the second. But three Denver turnovers in that quarter were costly. Defensively, the Broncos controlled receiving starsWesWelkerandRobGronkowski,but were hurt by the Patriots’ other tight end, Aaron Hernandez. Ground assault The Patriots gave up the second-most yards in the league this season, but, with Brady, they scored the third most. So pass rushers Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil must get to him early and defensive backs must cover as long as necessary. Tebow won’t have receiver Eric Decker, who hurt his left knee against Pittsburgh. But Willis McGahee ran for1,199 yards and Tebow added 660 this season on the NFL’s top rushing team. “We can learn a little bit from our last game against them, but this is a whole new deal,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “They’re a tough team to prepare for. They give you a lot of looks on both sides of the ball.” Tebow brought the Broncos (9-8) back from a 1-4 start all the way to the playoffs despite completing 46.5 percent of his passeswithaflawedmotionandlosingthelast three regular-season games. But the hype soared after last Sunday’s playoff victory. On the very first play of overtime, Pittsburgh had no deep safety. All Demaryius Thomas had to do was catch Tebow’s 18yard pass over the middle and run the rest of the way for an 80-yard touchdown and a

29-23 win. That cranked up the Tebowmania volume on postgame shows but not among his teammates. “For the most part, it’s not like it’s something that you ask for,” Tebow said. “You care about going out there and trying to get 150 Special Notices 415 Autos-Antique & Classic better every day and trying to be a great teammate.” And his teammates don’t focus on the hype. “It’s nowhere in the locker room,” safety Quinton Carter said. “Everybody else outSport Coupe.

Crowd size cancels launch of iPhone

Pa. rig count rises The Houston oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. reported Friday that 1,191 rigs were exploring for oil and 791 for natural gas. A year ago this week Baker Hughes reported 1,700 active rigs. Pennsylvania bucked an overall decline of 20 for the week, gaining three rigs. Alaska gained two. Arkansas and North Dakota picked up one apiece. Wyoming lost eight rigs, Colorado lost six and Oklahoma dropped four. Louisiana, Texas and West Virginia dropped two apiece, and New Mexico lost one.

Kodak shares hit again Shares of Eastman Kodak Co. fell 23 percent Friday amid renewed fears that the embattled photography pioneer is preparing to file for bankruptcy protection. Citigroup Inc. and Kodak both decline to comment Friday on a Bloomberg report that the New York bank is in talks to provide Kodak bankruptcy financing. Citing three unidentified people familiar with the negotiations, Bloomberg says Kodak may seek protection from creditors within weeks, then hold an auction to sell its digital-imaging patents, which analysts estimate could fetch at least $2 billion.

An angry crowd shouted and threw eggs at Apple’s Beijing flagship store Friday after it failed to open on schedule to sell the popular iPhone 4A smartphones.

Apple besieged in Beijing

Trade deficit widens

By JOE MCDONALD AP Business Writer

The U.S. trade deficit rose 10.4 percent in November to $47.8 billion, the Commerce Department said. Higher oil prices were the main reason the deficit widened. Oil rose above $100 per barrel in November. It had been as low as $75 a barrel the previous month. More expensive oil drove the value of imports up 1.3 percent, to a record $225.6 billion. Overall exports dropped 0.9 percent to $177.8 billion. American exports to Europe fell much more sharply — nearly 6 percent.

BEIJING — Raw eggs splattered and streaked the gleaming windows of Beijing’s Apple store Friday, hurled by angry and frustrated shoppers when the launch of the iPhone 4S was canceled due to fears over the size of the crowd. The incident highlighted the role of Chinese middlemen who buy up wildly popular iPhones or smuggle them from abroad for resale at a big markup. Hundreds of customers — including migrant workers hired by scalpers in teams of 20 to 30 — waited overnight in freezing temperatures outside the Apple store in a shopping mall in Beijing’s east side Sanlitun district.

New cars get more mpg The new vehicles Americans bought in 2011 averaged a half-mile more per gallon than those purchased in 2010, an improvement that saved $722 million at the gas pump where consumers bought 214 million fewer gallons of gas than a year earlier, according to TrueCar.com’s annual survey. The aggregate fleet of new cars and trucks averaged 22.2 mpg for 2011, compared with 21.7 mpg in 2010.

When the store failed to open as scheduled at 7 a.m., the crowd erupted in anger. Some pelted the store with eggs and shouted at employees through the windows. A person with a megaphone announced the sale was canceled. Police ordered the crowd to leave and sealed off the area with yellow tape. Employees posted a sign saying the iPhone 4S was out of stock. The iPhone 4S quickly sold out at other Apple stores in China, said Apple spokeswoman Carolyn Wu. Apple’s China stores are routinely mobbed for the release of new products. The company has its own stores only in Beijing and Shanghai, with a handful of authorized retailers in other cities, so middlemen who buy

iPhones and resell them in other areas can make big profits, said Wang Ying, who follows the cellphone market for Analysis International, a research firm in Beijing. “Apple is making a lot of money, so it is not too concerned about the scalpers,” Wang said. In Shanghai, stores limited iPhone 4S sales to two per customer. Several hundred people were waiting when the stores opened, bundled up against the cold. Some passed the time playing mahjong. Buyers included 500 older people from neighboring Jiangsu province who were hired by the boss of a cellphone market, the newspaper Oriental Morning Post said. They arrived aboard an 11-bus convoy and were paid 150 yuan ($23) each.

WILKES-BARRE – After five years as general manager of local television stations WBRE and WYOU, Lou Abitabilo retired Friday. Nexstar Broadcasting Group, which owns WBRE, announced Robert G. Bee, an industry veteran with more than three decades worth of experience, will succeed him next Friday. Abitabilo, 61, who joined WBRE and WYOU in January 2007, previousAbitabilo ly worked for five and a half years at WNEP, where he rose to the position of executive vice president and station manager. He and his wife, Jane, live in Scranton. He said he will spend some time in Florida before deciding what the next phase of his life will be. He said he enjoyed his time in the business and believes WBRE is in a stronger position today than it was when he got there. Tim Busch, executive vice president and co-chief operating officer of Texas-based Nexstar Broadcasting, said Abitabilo’s accomplishments included the successful launch of a community portal strategy and Pahomepage.com. During Abitabilo’s tenure, the stations revamped their news programming, eliminating local news from WYOU while adding more news shows to WBRE, which also wrested production of a10 p.m. newscast on the local Fox affiliate from WNEP. Busch said Bee has spent the last 18 years working in Pennsylvania broadcasting, most recently as director of sales for WTAE, Pittsburgh’s ABC affiliate. He held that position since 2003. “Bob has a long-term record of generating exceptional results through his experience and leadership,” Busch said.Bee, a graduate of St. John’s University, said he and his wife, Betsy, will immediately move to this area. “Nexstar’s commitment to serving local communities has remained a core strategy across the organization. … I look forward to immediately immersing myself into the community at large,” Bee said.

The good news about this cold wave is that it won’t be breaking any low temperature records and it brings improving conditions to area ski resorts. As the wind veers toward the north tonight, the coldest air will move into town and last through Sunday. Readings on Sunday will struggle just to reach 20. A warming trend starts Monday and more rain could arrive on Tuesday. To break record lows this time of year , a deep snow pack is often necessary which of course is lacking so far this winter. Up in Yukatat, Alaska, this winter the snow total is now up to 152.8”, which is 98” above normal. - Tom Clark

From bomb shelters to outhouses, they’re still around

The Record (Hackensack N.J.)

For what purpose might the Frederick Stegmaier Mansion have a secret passageway?

ACKENSACK, N.J. — There are certain spaces home-buyers crave, such as giant kitchens and expansive walk-in closets. And then there are the spaces that turn up unexpectedly, especially in some older homes — spots like bomb shelters, smokehouses and outhouses.

These can open a window into history, giving a fresh sense of how people once lived. The bomb shelter recalls a time when Americans feared nuclear attacks from the Soviet Union and imagined how to survive in a scorched landscape. The smokehouse tells of a time when Americans didn’t buy their meat at the supermarket, but butchered it and smoked it to preserve it. And the outhouse tells about life before indoor plumbing, when ... well, you know. Quite often, homeowners find new uses for oddball spaces. Tom Johnson of Liberty 100 Realty in Waldwick, N.J., recalls selling a house where a secret staircase connected a clos-

et on the first floor with a closet on the second. The owner lined up her shoes on the steps. A Ridgewood, N.J., Tudor listed by Beth Freed of Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty includes an elevator, which the owners use as a linen closet. Old bomb shelters are sometimes converted to wine cellars. Ruby and Bobby Kaplan of Teaneck, N.J., store old clothes, toys and household items in theirs. In Bobby Kaplan’s words, it’s “a nice, cool place for junk.” The shelter is a surprise in the Kaplans’ large stucco house, which has been so exSee ODDBALL, Page 2C

ou know how it happens in the movies. Someone in the library or the billiards room leans backward, accidentally touches a certain panel in the wall or brick in the fireplace and – whoosh! – next thing you know that person has tumbled into a secret passageway and is well on the way to solving a mystery. For bed-and-breakfast owner Joe Matteo, a discovery in the Frederick Stegmaier Mansion was a bit less dra-

matic. “I was cleaning the wainscoting with Murphy’sOilandlemonoil,”hesaidrecalling how he detected a low-slung door that opened into a room he hadn’t known existed when he bought the historic building in 2001. When he gives tours nowadays, Matteo likes to include that unusual space as an intriguing surprise for his guests. See LOCAL, Page 2C

tensively renovated it looks nearly new. (The seven-bedroom home is on the market for just under $1.5 million because the Kaplans’ three children have grown. Ruby Kaplan, a real-estate agent with Vera & Nechama Realty in Teaneck, is listing the home.) The Cold War hideout has thick concrete walls and a 2 1/2foot-diameter corrugated-metal tunnel, which leads beneath the lawn to the outside. Bobby Kaplan recalls that when the couple first moved into the house, he was in the yard with the dog when the dog suddenly vanished. He had fallen into the bomb-shelter tunnel, which the family later closed up. Bomb shelters were built in the 1950s and 1960s as places to escape nuclear fallout. A photo from the National Archives shows a cozy model, with a table covered by a checked cloth, two neatly made bunk beds and shelves stacked with canned food. Magazines are piled on the table, to help pass the time underground. And in 1960, Popular Mechanics magazine offered readers advice on how to build a shelter, saying: “An underground shelter having at least three feet of earth or sand over it, plus adequate door and air filter, will give you almost complete protection.” Nickie Lisella’s Allendale, N.J., house came with a bomb shelter. “I thought it was cool when we first saw it,” says Lisella, a manager with Terrie O’Connor Realtors in Allendale. “I figured if anyone dropped a bomb, we could save our family.” Buyers often are drawn to extra spaces, especially if they’re big enough for a variety of uses. Ann Matri, a Coldwell Banker agent in Saddle River, N.J., recently listed an 1890 two-bedroom house in Midland Park that sold almost immediately, and over asking price, largely because it included a small backyard stone building with a potbellied stove. It was originally used as a summer kitchen, when it was too hot to cook indoors. The buyer plans to use the space, roughly 12 feet by 14 feet, as an art studio. “I advertised it for hobbyists, artists, musicians,” Matri says. “I can’t tell you how many people came. A lot of people like to have some sort of studio or a little privacy.” Wanda and Larry Finch’s 200year-old, six-bedroom Dutch colonial in Maywood, N.J., has several unusual spaces, including a walk-in hearth in the kitchen. The house, known as the Romaine-Oldis-Brinkerhoff house for three early families who lived there, also is decorated with tiles left by a 20th-century owner, Er-

nest Bilhuber, who founded the Maywood Tile Works. One series of tiles, on a mantelpiece, shows scenes from Shakespeare plays. Outside, there’s a stone smokehouse, now used as a garden shed. Smokehouses were used to preserve pork after pigs were slaughtered, typically in December, according to an article by Michael Olmert in the Colonial Williamsburg Journal. First, the fresh meat was packed in salt to remove most of the moisture; then the meat was hung above a fire that smoldered in the smokehouse for a week or two. “The result is dried, long-lasting, smoke-flavored meat that will age in the same smokehouse for two years before it’s eaten,” wrote Olmert, an expert on colonial outbuildings, and author of a book called “Kitchens, Smokehouses and Privies.” The Finches’ house is now on the market for $439,000. Like the Kaplans, they are empty-nesters who don’t need all the space. The old A.A. Terhune house, a 1815 Federal-style building in Mahwah, N.J., includes a twoseater outhouse. The tiny building is now painted white with cheery yellow trim and is hung with birdhouses and used to store garbage cans. The outhouse is just one of many historic details at the home, including wide plank floors and original ceiling beams. “I don’t like new homes — they’re just four walls,” says the home’s owner, Lucille Conte. “I think you find the places where you’re supposed to be.” An 1880s farmhouse in Old Tappan, N.J., also has an outhouse, half-hidden behind shrubs, with a door and walls that lean at angles. That house, on the market for five months, has an asking price of $694,900. It also offers pocket doors, a wrap-around porch and the original pine floors. Properties with this kind of history don’t appeal to the average buyer, says the listing agent, Antoinette Gangi of Re/Max in Woodcliff Lake, N.J. They attract a smaller, but passionate, pool of people who love living with a piece of the past. “It’s a whole separate market,” she says. Vikki Healey of Vikki Healey Properties, the listing agent on the Finches’ Dutch stone house in Maywood, made a similar point. That house, she says, will probably be bought by “someone who can appreciate the incredible craftsmanship that’s gone into a building like this ... someone who can appreciate the property and the architectural detail.”

So he’d rather not say exactly where it is. It could be near a staircase, on a staircase, above a staircase or maybe even under a staircase. Good heavens! That last option sounds like the cubbyhole where Harry Potter’s uncle and aunt made him sleep. Suffice it to say Matteo’s mysterious space is larger than the fictional bedroom of Harry Potter’s early years. He surmises the room could date to Prohibition, a time when the Stegmaier Brewery sent beer to Europe, where it won gold medals in competition, and created for American consumers a cereal beverage so low in alcohol as to be legal. Hmmm. Could the space behind the door have been a place to keep something stronger? The storing of adult beverages, bytheway,isatopicthatcomesup frequently when we discuss the unusual spaces that grace some of the older properties in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Consider the bomb shelter discreetly located behind a wallpaper-covered door in the basement of the home Roy Smith bought

CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER

When Roy Smith bought his Kingston home three years ago, it came with a basement bomb shelter, apparently a Cold War relic, which he may get around to using for a wine cellar. The shelter contains a table that folds down in the style of a Murphy bed.

three years ago, when he and his wife, Carol, moved from the Back Mountain to Kingston. “I might make a wine cellar out of it,” said Smith, who considers the room a conversation piece, full of shelves where a previous owner apparently wanted to store food in the hope it would help him or her survive a nuclear blast. The space also includes a table that folds down from the wall, in the style of a Murphy bed, and a composting toilet. Smith does not expect he would ever need to use the shelter to es-

cape nuclear devastation. “I certainly hope not,” he said. Just as the bomb shelter has walls several inches thick, so does the root cellar, or perhaps more accurately, the fruit cellar on the grounds of American Legion Post 781 in Mountain Top. “I think you could call it either,” post member Bob Derwin said, explaining the building, which dates to “the late 1800s or maybe 1900” was likely used to store apples from a nearby orchard, or perhaps potatoes or carrots.

The root cellar is close to the post home’s outdoor flagpole, and the incinerator where members have a solemn ceremony every June 14 to burn old flags. Inside, the historic structure has a cavernlike feel, and you can hear an echo if you shout into it. It’s also a good place to joke around. “Hey, Ray, you were just a kid when this was built,” a buddy teased Ray Samolis earlier this week. “Or were you just back from the Civil War?” While the highest point of its curved roof is17 feet, Derwin said, its depth is 34 feet and its width is 18 feet. Its thick walls, built into a hillside, keep the temperature at 53 degrees year-round, which made the cellar a comfortable place to keep the beer during carnivals. Right now the post home uses the building to store materials for its baseball field. The 260-acre property, purchased by the American Legion during the1940s, boasts a baseball diamond, a pond members stock with trout for a children’s tournament, a disc-golf course and access to Blytheburn Lake. “Everything we do,” vice commander Al Finn said, “is either for kids or vets.”

St. Jude School in Mountain Top was one of several schools recognized at a Pontifical Mass for World Mission Sunday at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Scranton. Ella and Lauren Urosevich, students at St. Jude’s, accepted the school’s award on behalf of the entire student body. The awards were presented with sincere gratitude by the Diocesan Office for the Pontifical Mission Societies in the United States, in recognition of the generous responses of prayer and sacrifices for the worldwide missions of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and the Holy Childhood Association. St. Jude’s was recognized in three categories: Hands Together Award for using three or more HCA education programs, Highest Total Sharing and Highest Per Capita. The principal celebrant of the Mass was The Most Rev. Joseph C. Bambera, bishop of Scranton. At the reception following the Mass, in front, from left: Ella and Lauren Urosevich.

Woman’s boyfriend tugs at her heartstrings from a very long distance Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Cole,” and I have been together several years now. We have a loving relationship, but the problem is distance. My job sometimes requires me to take short-term contracts in other cities and overseas. Even though it is difficult to be apart, I handle long-distance relationships relatively well while Cole does not. Cole tries to be supportive and wants me to be successful, but he takes it personally when I have to leave. For me, it’s just about a job, but Cole doesn’t see it that way. I would support Cole wherever and in whatever he needed. Although it would be ideal to be together all the

DEAR ABBY ADVICE time, I realize that sometimes it isn’t possible. Am I being selfish, or do we simply need different things out of a relationship? — Globe-Trotter in Des Moines Dear Globe-Trotter: Are you being selfish, or is Cole being selfish? Are you willing to give up a career you have prepared for and work in so that he will no longer suffer separation anxiety? While your relationship is a loving one, the two of you have serious differences, and you must decide which is more important to you.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: My wife died nine years ago after a long illness. We have a son, a daughter and seven grandchildren. I met “Lucille” two years ago at a basketball game that involved both our grandsons. Slowly, we began dating. Lucille has been a widow for many years and has five children. We are now engaged and planning a wedding for about 60 people after Lucille retires next year. We want to include our families in the ceremony. Lucille’s two eldest sons plan to give her away. Two of her granddaughters will be flower girls. I asked my son to be my best man and he refused. He said he is happy for us and will attend the wedding, but he prefers not to stand up for me. He feels it would be disloyal to his mother’s

CRYPTOQUOTE

memory. He is adamant. I never imagined my son would act this way. I didn’t mean to offend him. I’m not trying to replace his mother. We just want to bring both families together. Abby, your opinion, please. — Well-Meaning Dad On the East Coast Dear Dad: It’s a shame that your son feels unable to support you as you enter this new phase of your life. If he is offended at the idea that after nine years you would want to remarry, the problem is his. Do not make it yours. I’m sure your late wife would want your life to be fulfilling. Ask your daughter or a close friend to stand up with you and let nothing spoil your day. You and Lucille have earned your happiness. Bless you both.

Dear Abby: My in-laws often leave the price tags on gifts, especially if the gift was expensive. I believe price tags should be removed. Shouldn’t a gift come from the heart and not be a monetary statement? — Offended in Wisconsin Dear Offended: Yes, it should. Leaving a price tag on a gift implies that the giver is also “giving” the recipient a burden of gratitude. And the burden can weigh so heavily that it diminishes the pleasure of receiving a gift. 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.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You get an impulse, and you act on it. If you ask for permission, you are changing the power dynamic or reinforcing a fictional hierarchy that really only exists if you agree to it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a mood to mingle. You’ll be around many interesting, accomplished and attractive people. The one with a sense of humor will steal your heart every time. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll take part in truly interesting conversations. As you listen, you provide a sounding board of truth for others who will note how their ideas resonate with you — even if you don’t say a word. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to see someone who is behind catch up. You’ll support another person’s effort to do this, and the next time you’re behind, you’ll be all the more motivated to sprint to the finish. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a decision to make. Will your future self approve of this action? Not the person you are now living at a date in the future, but the person you want to be in the future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can’t always do what you think needs to be done. Prior responsibilities prevent it. Those same responsibilities are far more important than you think. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The job you finish somehow makes more work for you. The fact that you don’t mind this one bit is evidence that you are doing something you truly enjoy.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It usually takes an unexpected event to show you what you can’t see. If someone points out where you’ve made a mistake, you’ll be grateful for the enlightenment this information brings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It may be time to disassociate yourself from something that you believe increases your selfworth. This act will reinforce that your worth doesn’t really have anything to do with what you own or do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have done something that is worthy of the attention it will get. If you don’t really want to be visible, noticed and rewarded for your efforts, that’s just too bad. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll provide a stable and loving authority for someone who is a child or acts like one. You relish the role, which makes your relationship a strong and mutually affectionate one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because you happen to enjoy an activity doesn’t mean it isn’t work. You’ll provide an example of hard work. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 14). You’ll not only do what’s necessary for your own success; you’ll also be the sole reason for someone else’s success. Your agreement helps a project take off. February brings increased mental control. You’ll study an area of knowledge and become an expert. The camaraderie of friends will help you meet physical goals in May. Libra and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 3, 20 and 18.
