STATE COLLEGE — Quiet mourners lined the route of Joe Paterno’s funeral procession Wednesday, watching with grief and reverence as the electric-blue hearse carrying the Penn State coach’s casket slowly drove by. Some took pictures with their cell phones, or waved to his widow. Others craned their necks hoping for a better glimpse through the crowd sometimes four deep or more.

HARRISBURG — A narrowly divided Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Wednesday invalidated a plan to redraw state House and Senate district lines, calling the redistricting approach “contrary to law” and throwing into disarray plans by candidates and parties for this year’s General Assembly races. The two-page order sending the plan back to the Legislative Reapportionment Commission said current district lines will remain until the commission comes up with a new plan that passes legal muster, which could mean changes may not take effect for two years. The two-page “The fact order … said that the court has ... allowed current disthe 2001 plan to trict lines will stay in effect remain until leads me to be- the commislieve they think it could take a sion comes up little bit of with a new time” to work plan that up a new one, passes legal said Senate Minority Leader muster, which Jay Costa, D-Al- could mean legheny, the on- changes may ly member of the five-man not take efcommission to fect for two vote against it. years.

The commission consists of the Republican and Democratic floor leaders from the House and Senate, along with a fifth member, an appointed judge. The plan the court threw out by a 4-3 vote was opposed by Senate Democrats and others, who argued in a court session Monday that there was not sufficient reason to split some counties and See PLAN, Page 8A

With three weeks remaining to make changes to the 2012 budget, Luzerne County Council members are at a standstill on amendments to balance the spending plan. Interim Manager Tom Pribula said Wednesday he’s still awaiting direction from council since his most recent pro-

posal failed to garner majority support. The topic may come up at tonight’s work session. Pribula had pitched a plan to increase taxes 2 percent and use $1.4 million in past borrowed capital funding to repay debt. There also would be about 56 layoffs. Under home rule, the manager presents the budget and at least six of the 11 council members must approve it. It makes no sense to propose something that won’t be adopted, Pribula said. The county must revert to the budget adopted by former commissioners if an amendment isn’t approved. The commis-

Woman hit with additional drug charge Christina Pearson charged with buying drug used to make methamphetamine. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

A woman arrested in November by state drug agents when methamphetamine labs were shut down in Luzerne and Columbia counties was charged again Tuesday with supplying a medication used to cook the homemade narcotic. State drug agents with the Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation allege Christina Pearson, 32, purchased pseudoephedrine at various pharmacies in Luzerne County, knowing it was being used to make methamphetamine, according to charges filed. Pearson allegedly purchased a total of 16.4 grams of the medication, which is sold behind the counter without a prescription at most pharmacies, on Dec. 14, Dec. 23, Dec. 30, Jan. 5 and twice on Jan. 10. The sale of pseudoephedrine requires buyer to swipe their driver’s licenses or identification cards in a card reader prior to the purchase. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, pseudoephedrine is one of many ingredients, including brake fluid and drain cleaner, used to manufacture methamphetamine. Pearson allegedly told drug agents that she acquired pseu-

Father charged after 3 kids left unattended Man told police ‘God’ was watching kids after arrest on drunkenness charge. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

NANTICOKE – Police searched a house early Wednesday morning and found three sleeping children after their father claimed from a jail cell, “God is watching over them,” according to charges filed. Police charged Julian Jay Johnson, 32, with leaving his three children, ages 1, 3 and 6, unsupervised in their house on Loomis Street while he was drinking alcohol and causing a disturbance at Johnson Tommyboy’s Bar and Grille on North Market Street. Johnson was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on three counts of endangering the welfare of children, two counts of harassment, and one count each of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. Police said the children were taken into protective custody by Children and Youth Services. According to the criminal complaint: Police allege an intoxicated Johnson was inside the tavern causing a disturbance and initiating a fight with two patrons just after 1 a.m. He was thrown out of the tavern and sat in his vehicle in the parking lot. Police said Johnson was wearing a woman’s scarf and no shoes. He was transported to police headquarters and placed in a holding cell. Johnson repeated several times he needed to go home because he has children. Police asked him who was caring for children to which Johnson replied, “They’re with God; God is watching over them.” After Johnson made the statement, police made several unsuccessful attempts to contact the children’s mother, who does not reside at Johnson’s residence. Police went to the house, finding an unlocked front door. A 1-year-old boy and a 3-yearold girl were found sleeping on a mattress, and a 6-year-old boy was found sleeping on a pile of clothes in a bedroom, the criminal complaint says.

doephedrine and gave it to an unnamed person in exchange for methamphetamine, according to the crimiPearson nal complaint. She was arraigned by District Judge Rick Cronauer in WilkesBarre on seven counts of possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance. She was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $20,000 bail. Pearson was among 25 people charged in Operation Explosive Impact, an investigation that shut down 16 meth labs in Luzerne and Columbia counties in November. Court records indicate Pearson

purchased the medication in December and January while she was free on $50,000 bail she posted in Columbia County on Nov. 22. Drug agents linked Pearson to a meth lab on Winding Road in Jonestown, Columbia County, where she was charged with supplying Herbert Graves, 34, with the same medication to cook methamphetamine, according to arrest records. Hargraves, of Cragle Hill Road, is facing a series of drug charges in Columbia County Court. Pearson is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 1 before District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre Township. She is scheduled for a formal arraignment in Columbia County Court on charges to her November arrest on Feb. 2.

Committee OKs bill to reduce size of House of Representatives from 203 to 153

State building a smaller House By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

HARRISBURG – Area legislators favor reducing the size of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives by nearly 25 percent. A bill that calls for trimming House membership to153 from the current 203 members was approved Wednesday by an 18-6 vote of the House State Government Committee, said Speaker of the House Sam Smith, R-Jefferson/Armstrong/Indiana. The bill now heads to the House floor. “There is nothing magical about the

number 203, in fact, it came about by accident, yet reports and studies have indicated that groups of more than 150 tend to be less efficient,” Smith said in a release. “ReMullery aching a consensus with 203 people on major and controversial issues has proven more difficult in recent times.” Changing the size of the legislature requires an amendment to the state Constitution, which means the same

bill must be debated and passed in two consecutive sessions, then approved by voters. If the move is successful, the changes would not happen until after the 2020 census. Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, a co-sponsor of the bill, HB 153, said reducing the size of the General Assembly, currently the second largest and second most expensive in the nation, would reduce costs to taxpayers. Mullery said the House and Senate pay about $119 million a year in salaries alone, with more than 200 people making at least $80,000. He said legislators

Insurance action taken The Pennsylvania Insurance Department’s Office of Market Regulation took action against two Luzerne County insurance agents last year, the department announced Wednesday. The license of Susan A. Kornowski, of Wapwallopen, was revoked. In a signed consent order on Aug. 1, she acknowledged creating false documents that indicated she had procured insurance that was not purchased. Michael S. Pajka, of Shavertown, agreed to a five-year license supervision and paid a $1,000 fine for misrepresenting an annuity application for a client. Pajka’s license is subject to immediate suspension if he fails to comply with the consent order dated March 17.

Mullery on new committee State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, has been named to the House of Representatives’ Human Services Committee. Mullery is also a member of the House Health, Children and Youth and Game and Fisheries committees.

The Commonwealth Medical College has announced that it will offer a master’s degree that will prepare scientists for careers in biomedical research. The Professional Science Master’s Degree Program is a 21-month program that prepares students to become laboratory technicians or technology specialists in academic research labs at colleges and universities, government research labs or in private sectors like biotech and pharmaceutical companies.

PITTSTON – Veteran area journalist Richard B. Cosgrove was well known to readers of numerous area newspapers, and his memory proved enduring through memorial services Tuesday and Wednesday. A journalist in Northeastern Pennsylvania for more than 70 years, Cosgrove died Saturday morning at the age of 87. A funeral service held Wednesday drew more than 250 mourners – including actor Charlie Sheen – to St. John the Evangelist Church. More than 2,000 mourners viewed Cosgrove’s body Tuesday evening at the church. Dick Cosgrove worked for The Times Leader, The Scrantonian and Scranton Tribune, Pittston’s Sunday Dispatch and later The Citizens’ Voice. Cosgrove was a member of The Sunday Dispatch, Pittston newspaper staff at its inception in 1947, and a staff member for the following 53 years. He continued as a journalist until his death, authoring a weekly column for The Citizens’ Voice for the last 11 years. In delivering the eulogy, attorney Joseph Cosgrove pointed out that in

the audience were his father’s journalistic protégés: Ed Ackerman, current Sunday Dispatch editor; Lori Nocito, current executive director of Leadership Wilkes-Barre; and Bill Watson, whose grandfather founded The Sunday Dispatch. A bow tie was Dick Cosgrove’s trademark, and Ackerman sported one at the funeral as a tribute. So did attorney Cosgrove, adding that he wished he had paid closer attention to his father’s instructions on how to tie one. Monsignor John J. Bendik, pastor, was principal celebrant at the funeral Mass. Dick Cosgrove served as a Eucharistic minister at the church for several years and his wife, Mame, was buried

from the church about 30 years ago. Sheen arrived at the church just moments before the start of Mass, accompanied by two friends. He walked quietly up the middle aisle and embraced Joseph Cosgrove, shook hands with George Cosgrove, Richard’s other son and Pittston Area School District superintendent, and additional family members before taking a seat in the fourth row of pews. He was observed wiping his eyes several times and midway through Mass replaced his glasses with sunglasses. Sheen’s father, veteran actor Martin Sheen, is a close friend of Joseph Cosgrove and the entire Cosgrove family. Joe Cosgrove has represented Martin Sheen in legal cases. Dick and Joseph Cosgrove were frequent house guests of Martin Sheen in California. Cosgrove was laid to rest in St. John the Evangelist Cemetery. The interment was private.

WILKES-BARRE – Gov. Tom Corbett will be in town on Feb. 3 to help honor a friend. Patrick J. Solano is the recipient of the Leadership Wilkes-Barre’s 2012 Community Leadership Award, and

Corbett will speak at the event at the Westmoreland Club. “This is an opportunity not only for the citizens of Luzerne County to celebrate Mr. Solano’s Solano achievement, but also for the governor, who represents all citizens of Pennsylvania, to be part of the celebration,” Kevin Harley, the governor’s press secretary, said Wednesday. “Pat Solano has been a

friend and a trusted adviser to the governor, as well as a leader in the community.” Harley said Solano was especially helpful to Corbett during the flooding last fall. “Gov. Corbett has always stressed the need for community service,” Harley said. “Pat Solano has demonstrated a lifetime of service to his county, his state and to the citizens of the northeast.” See SOLANO, Page 8A

WILKES-BARRE – A lawsuit filed in Luzerne County Court Tuesday asks that a former physician return over $900,000 worth of shares in Wendy’s Restaurant franchises to his deceased wife’s estate. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Ralph Kates on behalf of KALA-GP Inc., asks for the shares to be returned to the estate of Adele Alexanderian, the wife of former physician Harry Alexanderian, of West Pittston. The suit names Alexanderian Harry Alexanderian as a defendant, as well as his children David Alexanderian and Marijo Paulus, who are named as beneficiaries under their mother’s estate. According to the lawsuit, about 11 Wendy’s franchises are controlled by partnership agreements involving a number of individuals. Harry Alexanderian had been a shareholder, but in 2004 was criminally charged, which constituted a violation of his partnership agreement, therefore, having to give up his ownership interests. Alexanderian, 85, was charged in 2004 with dispensing controlled substances outside of the scope of professional practice with no medical purpose. He pleaded guilty to that charge, as well as Medicaid fraud and unlicensed treatment of drug addiction, and was sentenced in May 2005 to six months house arrest followed by two years probation. Several wrongful death lawsuits followed, where relatives of former patients alleged Alexanderian subscribed their loved ones prescriptions that ultimately led to their deaths. Alexanderian gave the shares to his wife, the suit says, and she passed away in September 2008, with a total of $951,108 in partnership interests. The lawsuit states a partnership agreement outlines that the death of a partner triggers a mandatory sale and purchase of that partner’s interests to the remaining partners. Alexanderian became the executor of his wife’s estate, the suit says, and Alexanderian was notified in August 2009 that he had to sell the shares. Alexandrian had not sold the shares, the suit says, in violation of the shareholders agreement. The suit asks that the shares be placed in the estate of Adele Alexanderian and that the plaintiffs be awarded more than $50,000, plus interest and costs. Alexanderian’s attorney, Robert Marsh, did not return a message seeking comment Wednesday.

House salutes injured congresswoman as she officially resigns to focus on her recovery

Amid tears, Giffords says goodbye By DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The applause rolled through the big chamber, growing ever louder as hundreds of Republicans and Democrats suddenly realized Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was back in the House. But this time she had come to say farewell. Fellow lawmakers gave her a fitting send-off: cheers, hugs, a cascade of tributes and plenty of tears in a rare moment of political unity. A year since that fateful Saturday morning when Giffords was severely wounded during a shooting rampage in her home district, the Arizona congresswoman resigned on Wednes-

day with a plea for civility — and a hint that she’ll be back on the national stage. For now, the 41-year-old said, her movements and speech still halting, she needs to focus on her recovery. For all the kind words showered on her, Giffords reflected in her resignation letter about a level of respect that seems like an aberration these days in a bitterly divided Washington. In her five years in Congress, she said, “Always I fought for what I thought was right. But never did I question the character of those with whom I disagreed. Never did I let pass an opportunity to join hands with someone just because he or she held different ideals.” Giffords’ friend Rep. Debbie

Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., became emotional before reading Giffords’ resignation letter in the well of the House. Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., held Giffords’ hand. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, cried after Giffords slowly made her way to the podium and handed him the envelope with her resignation letter. Last January, a gunman opened fire at Giffords’ “Congress on Your Corner” event in Tucson, killing six people and wounding 13, including Giffords who suffered a gunshot wound to her head.

Egypt on Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak, in rallies that turned into a show of strength by secular groups in their competition with the country’s powerful Islamists over demands for an end to military rule. Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the 18 days of protests against Mubarak, was transformed into the focal point of the rivalry between revolutionary activists who want to show they can still mobilize the street and the Muslim Brotherhood, who emerged as Egypt’s dominant political force after a landslide victory in parliament elections. The secular activists urge continued protests to force the immediate ouster of the generals who took power after Mubarak’s fall, saying they are just as dictatorial as the former president.

U.S. ‘lost’ Iraq, Al-Qaida says The U.S. pulled its troops out of Iraq because its economy is collapsing and it needed to save money, an al-Qaida front group said in a message posted on its website Wednesday, its first online comment since the U.S. completed its pullout last month after nine years of war. Al-Qaida was one of the main U.S. enemies in Iraq. It was behind some of the deadliest attacks on U.S. soldiers, Iraqi security forces and Americanbacked government institutions. Since the U.S. pullout, al-Qaida and other Sunni militants have stepped up attacks on Shiites, killing more than 170 people since the beginning of the year and raising concern that the surge in violence and an escalating political crisis might deteriorate into a civil war.

Rendell: Kill food stamp test Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said Wednesday his successor, Gov. Tom Corbett, should cancel plans to deny food stamps to people deemed by the state to have too much in personal assets. Rendell hand-delivered a three-page letter to Republican Corbett’s offices that warned an asset test would be expensive to administer and harmful to the economy, particularly in poor neighborhoods where food stamps are often a major source of business for small grocery stores. Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley said an asset test will be implemented by the Department of Public Welfare in the coming months, but the administration has not decided its dollar-value level.

The color-coded map of planting zones often seen on the back of seed packets is being updated by the government, illustrating a hotter 21st century. It’s the first time since 1990 that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has revised the official guide for the nation’s 80 million gardeners, and much has changed. Nearly entire states, such as Ohio, Nebraska and Texas, are in warmer zones. The new guide, unveiled Wednesday at the National Arboretum, arrives just as many home gardeners are receiving their seed catalogs and dreaming of lush flower beds in the spring.

Army to cut combat brigades

U.S. officials say number of brigades could fall by 13 as the service will be reduced by about 80,000 soldiers. By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army plans to slash the number of combat brigades from 45 to as low as 32 in a broad restructuring of its fighting force aimed at cutting costs and reducing the service by about 80,000 soldiers, according to U.S. officials familiar with the plans. Officials said the sweeping changes will likely increase the size of each com-

bat brigade — generally by adding another battalion — in an effort to ensure that those remaining brigades have the fighting capabilities they need when they go to war. A brigade is usuPanetta ally about 3,500 soldiers, but can be as large as 5,000 for the heavily armored units. A battalion is usually between 600-800 soldiers. The brigade restructuring is intended to save money without eroding the military’s ability to protect the country and wage war when needed. Army officials contend that while there would be fewer

brigades, building them bigger will give them more capabilities and depth. Reducing the overall number of brigades will also eliminate the need for the headquarters units that command and oversee them. Officials acknowledged that merging battalions together into larger brigades could shift some soldiers to different bases across the country, although that effort could be stymied by members of Congress who don’t like to see the staffing decline at bases that feed the local economy. Military leaders, from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on down, insist the cuts will not hurt the force’s effectiveness.

DORAL, Fla. — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Wednesday ridiculed rival Mitt Romney’s call for self-deportation of illegal immigrants as an “Obama-level fantasy” that would be inhumane to long-established families living in America. Romney, for his part, accused Gingrich of pandering to a Hispanic audience and said Gingrich himself had supported self-deportation in the past. Discussing immigration in state where 13 percent of registered vot- 2 0 1 2 ers are Hispanic, ELECTION the former House speaker criticized Romney’s immigration policy during a forum with the Spanish-language television network Univision, saying the idea of self-deportation would never work. Romney snapped back at him later in the day at the same forum. During a debate earlier this week, Romney said he favors selfdeportation over policies that would require the federal government to round up millions of illegal immigrants and send them back to their home countries. Advocates of Romney’s approach argue that illegal immigration can be curbed by denying public benefits to them, prompting them to leave the United States on their own. In debates, Gingrich has defended a proposal to allow some illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. if they’ve lived here for more than 25 years and have a local sponsor.

Daring raid by Navy SEALs frees 2 hostages from Somalia The Associated Press

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Held captive since last fall, an ailing American woman and a Danish man are safely on their way home after a bold, dark-ofnight rescue by U.S. Navy SEALs. The commandos slipped into a Somali encampment, shot and killed nine captors and whisked the hostages to freedom. The raid’s success was a welcome bit of news for President Barack Obama, who was delivering his State of the Union speech as the mission was wrapping up Tuesday night. He did not mention it in his address but dropped a hint upon arriving in the House chamber by telling Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, “Good job tonight.” It was the second splashy SEAL Team 6 success in less than a year, following last May’s killing of Osama bin Laden in

Ex-Pittston code officer files fed suit against city

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Dupont borough has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who alleged police unfairly targeted juveniles who patronized his arcade, causing him to lose customers that led to the closure of the business. William DeFazio filed suit in November against the borough and Police Chief Anthony DeMark, claiming violations of his due process rights for actions DeMark took relating to DeFazio’s Main Street arcade, We’ve Got Game, and later against a bar he opened at the location, The Corner Pocket. DeFazio, of Roaring Creek Township, opened the arcade in 2007. The suit alleged that from the start, DeMark and other officers repeatedly harassed juveniles who patronized the business, demanding they provide personal information and threatening them with arrest for loitering and curfew violations. DeFazio later transferred a liquor license to the premises to The Corner Pocket Lounge. Once again, police harassed customers, stopping them and questioning them for no apparent reason, he claimed. The lawsuit, originally filed in Luzerne County Court, was transferred to federal court in December. The case went before a mediator, resulting in a settlement that was reached Wednesday. Details of the settlement were not available as the agreement has not yet been finalized. Matthew Carmody, attorney for Dupont, said neither DeMark nor the borough admitted any wrongdoing. The borough agreed to the settlement because it was the most cost-effective and efficient way to resolve the matter, he said. Timothy Polishan, attorney for DeFazio, did not return a phone message seeking comment.

said. At Monday’s meeting, which approached midnight, several council members expressed disappointment that no unions embraced proposals to freeze 2012 wage increases or give up 12 days of paid work this year – options that would have demonstrated “shared sacrifice” and reduce forced layoffs. At one point in the meeting, union representative Paula Schnelly told council members to come to the courthouse the day workers are laid off to “watch them cry.” “Be there. You’re making this decision, so be there for it and experience it with me and everyone else,” said Schnelly, of the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, or AFSCME. Schnelly said 36 of the 56 layoffs would be from AFSCME units. The union has had four rounds of layoffs since 2004, reducing the membership from 620 when she started as union president seven years ago to a current 480, she said. Senior citizens weigh in Councilman Eugene Kelleher, who is among the five council members willing to approve Pribula’s latest proposal, told union representatives senior citizens have called him asking why they should pay more if unions won’t freeze their wages.

Harry Haas were not there, but both have expressed opposition to a tax hike. Haas said Wednesday that he has not changed his stance. A 2-percent hike would increase taxes about $10.50 on a $100,000 property. Councilman Tim McGinley said Monday he never expected to support a tax increase but has “grave concerns” services will be compromised with 103 layoffs. Stephen J. Urban said during Tuesday’s council meeting that he had to bounce back after two private sector layoffs in recent years and said officials should not cave in to the demands of employees. Councilman Edward Brominski also broached the topic Tuesday, saying a tax increase and 19 layoffs during his first year as a county commissioner in 1980 allowed the county to get back on solid financial footing. Exploring options Morelli has been pressing Pribula and fellow council members to explore more temporary solutions to get through the year without a tax increase and to reduce layoffs. He said the county could save $390,700 with a 10-day furlough for non-union workers, divert $500,000 in liquid fuel funding from road projects to cover salaries and generate $300,000 by forcing non-union workers to pay more than 10 percent toward health care. Eliminating health care for nonunion solicitors and obtaining an estimated $500,000 in up-front cash from back-tax liens should also be explored, he said. Pribula said most non-union employees have gone without raises for several years and questions the fairness of singling them out for concessions that won’t be made by

He wants to explore higher health care contributions for all workers – not just management – but said it won’t happen by the Feb. 15 budget adoption deadline because detailed analysis is required.

SCRANTON – The former code enforcement officer for Pittston on Wednesday filed a federal lawsuit against the city, alleging he was fired because he had supported a political opponent of Mayor Jason Klush. The lawsuit, filed by Greg Gulick, is the second retaliation lawsuit to be filed against the city in less than two weeks. Former Police Chief Jeff Tayoun filed suit on Jan. 11, alleging he was demoted by Klush after Tayoun reported wrongdoing by another officer. According to the suit by attorney Barry Dyller of WilkesBarre: Gulick had worked as code officer since 2006 and had been a strong supporter of former Mayor Joe Keating, who lost to Klush in the May 2010 primary. The suit alleges Gulick was fired in September 2010 so the city could hire Joe Moskovitz, whom Gulick claims is a friend of one or more city council members. Moskovitz, according to the suit, had lost his job as borough administrator for Hopatcong Borough, N.J. after he was arrested for drunken driving and possession of a small amount of marijuana in January 2009. Attorney Sam Falcone, solicitor for Pittston, said Moskovitz told council members about his conviction prior to his hiring. “My understanding is he was very upfront with them,” Falcone said. “Everyone felt the guy had paid his debt to society.” joined by justices J. Michael Eakin and Joan Orie Melvin, said they were not persuaded the plan was contrary to law “as reflected in the existing precedent.” “Although I am receptive to the concern that past decisions of the court may suggest an unnecessarily stringent approach to equalization of population as between voting districts, I believe this could be addressed via prospective guidance from the court,” Saylor wrote. The plan the commission approved moved some House and Senate districts across the state, and Senate Democrats argued they were able to produce a map that divided far fewer municipalities and counties. The Pennsylvania Constitution says the 50 Senate and 203 House districts need to be “of compact and contiguous territory as nearly equal in population as practicable,” and that only “absolutely necessary” divisions should be made to counties, cities, towns, boroughs, townships or wards. “We think you need to explain why you do some of these splits, including House districts that are split, when you’ve got a community that’s like 5,000 folks, and they have three different legislators,” Costa said. Pileggi said he has asked commission lawyer Joseph Del Sole to seek more clarity about how legislative candidates should proceed. The primary is April 24. “The order is not as clear as

conviction, which was reported by several media outlets when he was hired, is an issue in Gulick’s case. “A former employee can bring suit against their employer, but I don’t see why my incident is germane to the issue,” Moskovitz said. “It’s merely an attempt to smear me and the city in an attempt to pad his lawsuit.” Dyller defended the decision to include the information, saying it goes to council’s motivation to fire Gulick. “They fired Gulick so they could help him (Moskovitz) out,” Dyller said. “The reason he needed help was because of what happened in New Jersey.” Moskovitz was hired as city administrator a few days after council terminated Gulick. Funding for his position came from the salary that had been earmarked for Gulick. Gulick’s suit alleges he was notified there was going to be a hearing regarding his job performance. He alleges the hearing was a “sham” because some council members had already decided to fire him. Falcone said he could not comment on specific allegations in the suit, but he is confident the city “acted appropriately” when it eliminated Gulick’s position. The suit seeks unspecified damages for wrongful termination and violations of Gulick’s right to free speech and due process. Gulick also is seeking damages for violation of federal labor laws, alleging he was required to work more than 35 hours per week without compensation for the extra hours. I’d like it to be for candidates,” he said. He said the commission staff can construct new maps in short order if the court’s opinion focuses narrowly on a small number of districts. If the opinion is broader, Pileggi said, that could take time. “We’re in uncharted territory here,” he said. During three hours of oral argument on Monday over nine challenges to the plan, Del Sole said producing districts with nearly equal population was the priority, based on previous Supreme Court decisions. “This court is being asked to reject 40 years of jurisprudence in order to sustain the appeal,” Del Sole told the court. But Justice Max Baer questioned whether the court was being asked to uphold the plan simply because it had never invalidated one in the past. “That’s a self-fulfilling prophesy, isn’t it?” Baer said Monday. Part of the court order changed certain deadlines for the primary petition process for candidates, and the majority said any signatures on nominating petitions that were collected on Tuesday and Wednesday, the first two days of the three-week petition circulation period, would be considered valid. Chief Justice Ronald Castille, a Republican, joined Democrats Baer, Seamus P. McCaffery and Debra McCloskey Todd in ruling against the plan.

t is with great sadness that the children of Fred C. Heck Jr., Professor of Veterinary Microbiology Emeritus, Texas A & M University, wish to inform friends and former colleagues of our beloved father that he has died in Bryan on Monday, January 23, 2012. Our father was born on November 1, 1930, in Wilkes-Barre, son of Fred and Agnes (Minkiewicz) Heck. As a young man, he worked alongside his father in the family business delivering coal and ice, and later assisted his father in operating the family’s beer garden. Dad enrolled at The University of Scranton, but left to enlist in the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed in France, and then posted to Bryan Air Force Base. After his discharge, Dad enrolled at Texas A&M, where he took his Bachelor of Science and M.S. degrees. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas. For two years he worked in pharmaceutical development for ParkeDavis in Rochester, Mich., but he and our mother missed the warmer, friendlier Texas culture. They brought their family back to Bryan when dad was hired to teach in the School of Veterinary Medicine in 1967; he retired in 1990. Dad was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Alice (Sheridan) Heck, and his parents. He is survived by daughters, Marlene Heck and son-in-law, Kevin Reinhart of Lebanon, N.H, Patricia Heck of Bryan; son, Fred Heck III and daughter-in-law, Donna Graves Heck, and grandson, Philip Emer-

son Heck, of Kingwood, Texas; Dad’s sister, Rosemary Hodun of Portsmouth, N.H.; brother and sister-in-law, John and Marilyn Heck of Deptford Township, N.J.; and sisterin-law, Marjorie Hoffman of Mountain Top; and many nieces and nephews who adored their Uncle Freddy. We wish to express our deepest gratitude to family friend, Zeferina, who cared for our father with great tenderness in his last days. Laurie, dad’s Traditions Hospice nurse, attended with skill and love to his body and soul, and she could not have been kinder to us all. We are so thankful Laurie was with us to guide us through this most difficult time. The nursing staff at St. Joseph Manor also looked after dad with much compassion and care, for which we are ever grateful.

Movers appeared at Robert Powell’s Butler Township law firm Wednesday morning to clear out the building’s contents – evidence that the once thriving practice is closing. Powell is serving an 18-month prison sentence after pleading guilty in July 2009 to charges of failing to report a crime relating to his kickback payments to former county judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella. Former Luzerne County Prothonotary Jill Moran, who is affiliated with the Powell Law Group, could not be reached for comment Wednesday because her voice mail box at the Butler Township business was full. No one answered the Powell Law phone Tuesday. A representative of the moving company declined comment. A message for Powell representatives left with the mover was not returned. Attorney Jane Sebelin, who represents the Powell Law Group in other matters, could not be reached for comment Wednesday. The Butler Township building was listed in a county “free-andclear” back-tax auction in August, but was pulled after Dunmorebased First National Community Bank paid the $65,000 in taxes owed on the property. If the bank had not covered the

tax debt, it risked losing any opportunity to recoup some of the millions of dollars in loans owed by Powell and others. People who buy properties at that type of tax sale aren’t liable for any back taxes, mortgages or other liens against the properties, which meant the bank couldn’t force a new owner to pay the outstanding loans. The building on 5 acres is still under the ownership of Powell’s Big Kahuna Realty LLC, county records show. First National Community Bank initiated mortgage foreclosure proceedings on the property in April 2010, but the filing has been tied up in court. Big Kahuna was ordered in December to cooperate with the bank’s request for information in the case, according to the latest court filing. Attorneys representing Powell Law Group appeared in court earlier this month to contest First National’s claim demanding $5.9

million in loan repayments. Powell attorneys argued the payments and associated fees on three loans are “excessive.” In the largest loan, for $4.6 million, the bank obtained judgments against Moran, Powell, his wife and several others in February 2009 related to the default of loans for the Wright Township townhouse project formerly known as The Sanctuary. In the two remaining loans, totaling about $1.3 million, lines of credit were given to Moran and Powell for “working capital” in the law practice and for Big Kahuna Realty, according to court papers. All three judgments ordering payments were entered against the Powell Law Group in July 2011.

WILKES-BARRE – A former child psychiatrist pleaded guilty Wednesday to 66 counts relating to the possession of child pornography. John Francis Theroux, 53, of Charles Avenue, Kingston, entered the plea before Luzerne County Senior Judge Hugh Mundy. Assistant District Attorney Albert Yacoub said Theroux faces a maximum of seven years in prison for each charge, and will have to register his address under Megan’s Law for his entire life. Mundy said Theroux will be sentenced on May 1 after he is evaluated by the state Sexual Offender’s Assessment Board.

therapist at a marital counseling session. The therapist reported the pictures to Kingston police. Police searched the Theroux residence on Aug. 26 and allegedly uncovered 66 images of nude children on a hard drive, according to charges filed. Theroux said during the marital counseling session that looking at pictures of young girls is “not illegal if there isn’t any sex acts involved,” the complaint says. Theroux claimed his interest in looking at young girls increased when his wife made him leave their bedroom. Investigators searched the Theroux house, where Mary Theroux turned over a hard drive and pictures that were in a basket under clothes inside a bedroom closet.

the state child pornography laws. He believed since the children weren’t engaged in sexual acts, the images he was downloading were not considered child pornography, according to the complaint. Theroux’s attorney, Frank Nocito, has previously said his client retired from the U.S. Army in 2006 as a colonel, served in Iraq and was assigned at the West Point Military Academy in New York. At the time of his arrest, Theroux resigned as a child psychiatrist at the Children’s Service Center of the Wyoming Valley on South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre. The center provides adoption, psychiatric evaluations, substance abuse screenings and family therapy services.

Man receives special probation for selling/furnishing liquor to minors By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A man who police say purchased alcohol consumed by juveniles and adults at a party in July that ended in the vehicular homicide of a 16-year-old was accepted into the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition probation program Wednesday. Kenneth John Rushinski, 22, of Charles Street, Luzerne, was entered into the program for 12 months on a charge of selling/furnishing liquor to minors. If he completes the program, his criminal record will be cleared. “I’m so sorry,” Rushinski said Wednesday in court before hugging Daniel Madry, the father of Brian Madry, who was killed in a car wreck following the party. The two men embraced while standing before Luzerne County Senior Judge Hugh Mundy, who extended his sympathies to Madry and his family. “There’s nothing I can say that can follow (that hug),” said Rushinski’s attorney, Frank Nocito. Nocito added Wednesday his client is extremely remorseful for what happened that night and that a “lesson was learned.” Daniel Madry did not speak Wednesday, allowing Assistant District Attorney Mamie Phillips to outline the background of the case to Mundy. Brian Madry, of Wright Township,

was killed in a wreck in Fairview Township on July 18. He was a passenger in a 2004 Kia Optima, driven by Adam Fredmund, of Fairview Township, that crashed on Lake Road in Fairview Township. Fredmund was later charged with homicide by motor vehicle and other crimes and had been adjudicated a delinquent by a county judge and ordered to live in a group home in September for an unspecified amount of time. Fairview Township cited Rushinski with buying a 12-pack of beer, a six-pack of Four Loko and a six-pack of Twisted Tea for three women on July 17. The three women, who were eventually cited, arranged to buy the alcohol through Rushinski for a party held at a pavilion at Fountain Lake on Lake Road. Authorities allege the alcohol was consumed by at least six juveniles, including Fredmund. A civil lawsuit in the case is pending in Luzerne County Court in which Carolyn and Daniel Madry filed suit against Fredmund, the Glen Summit Company that owns Fountain Lake and Rushinski. In the lawsuit filed by attorneys of the Anzalone Law Offices, Madry’s parents said they are seeking in excess of $300,000 in damages due to the “careless, negligent and reckless acts of the defendants collectively.” Specifically, in regards to Rushinski, the suit cites negligence in providing alcohol for minors.

Two arrested in alleged coke sales Lamar Xavier Twyman and Nicholas Pilch arraigned on series of drug-related charges.

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

Twyman

HANOVER TWP. – State police at Wyoming said they arrested Lamar Xavier Twyman, 19, and Nicholas Pilch, 20, on Division Street in Lee Park after a two-month investigation into alleged cocaine sales from a residence near the Hanover Area Junior/Senior High School. The two men were arrested after state police followed their vehicle to Division Street from a residence at 1026 Ridge St. in Korn Krest, where Pilch allegedly sold cocaine for money in December and January, according to charges filed. In an unrelated case, township police arrested Twyman on Oct. 3

Pilch

POLICE BLOTTER PITTSTON – A man who was found dead on a trail near the Susquehanna River on Tuesday committed suicide, according to the Luzerne County Coroner’s Office. NANTICOKE – A man was

while investigating drug activity on Wyoming Street in Lee Park. Twyman was spotted at Division Street and Lee Park Avenue and fled police, allegedly discarding bags of crack cocaine in a yard during the chase, arrest records say. Court records indicate Twyman was released from jail when his bail was modified from $5,000 straight to unsecured at his preliminary hearing on Nov. 15. He is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia in Luzerne County Court. According to the latest criminal complaints: State police allege they purchased cocaine from Pilch from the Ridge Street residence on Dec. 19, Dec. 21, Dec. 28 and Jan. 18, totaling 30 grams of cocaine. State police believe Twyman was supplying cocaine to Pilch to sell at the residence.

arraigned Wednesday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on charged he attempted to rob the Cocoa Hut convenience store on Middle Road on Nov. 21. Daniel Joseph Olshefski, 24, of Burnett Street, Nanticoke, was charged with criminal attempt to commit robbery and criminal attempt to com-

Twyman became suspicious during the Dec. 28 transaction that he was being followed, and instructed Pilch to have the cocaine buyer meet him in the Hanover Industrial Estates, according to the criminal complaints. State police said they seized 30 heroin packets and about 15 grams of cocaine when Twyman and Pilch were arrested on Tuesday. Twyman fled the vehicle and was chased by troopers before he was apprehended near Vine Street. Twyman, last known address as Main Street, Kingston, and Pilch, of Huntsville Road, Shavertown, were arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on a series of drug-related charges. They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail each. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on Jan. 31 before District Judge Joseph Halesey in Hanover Township.

mit theft. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $40,000 bail. Police allege Olshefski concealed his face with a mask and demanded money from a clerk at the convenience store. The clerk refused to surrender money and chased Olshefski out of the store, according to

the criminal complaint. Olshefski was arrested Jan. 4 by Newport Township police on unrelated burglary charges. Police said in the criminal complaint Olshefski on Jan. 5 admitted to attempting to rob the convenience store for money to support a drug addiction, the criminal complaint says.

OTHER OPINION: GAS DRILLING

EPA intervention needed in Dimock

A

T ITS BEST, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to test well water supplies in a Susquehanna County town is merely insurance that the supplies are safe. At its worst, the federal agency’s action could be an indictment of Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection. Which proves true remains to be seen. Samples will be taken at 60 homes in Dimock over the next three weeks and analysis will be conducted over a five-week period. The reason for the testing is methane that was found in the drinking water supplies, which the DEP in 2008 said was the result of faulty construction of hydraulic fracturing drilling wells in the area by Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. The driller denies causing the problems, but DEP cited and fined Cabot. The company had been filling residents’ 550-gallon water tanks EDITORIAL BOARD

as part of a 2010 consent agreement. In November, though, the company stopped providing the water, and the DEP determined Cabot had met its obligations. Residents who don’t agree asked the EPA to intervene, and the agency decided the information they provided warranted further review. The residents’ fears must be addressed, and EPA testing is the best way to accomplish that goal. Although the DEP says it has found no evidence to justify the EPA’s actions, it nonetheless is not objecting to the additional testing. If its own findings are not confirmed, though, the state department’s reputation will suffer. Access to clean drinking water is a basic human need, and the residents of Dimock can’t be expected to sleep soundly at night until they know whether their supplies are safe. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

his letter to the editor is in response to a letter appearing Jan. 17 by Jack Walsh (“New teen-driving law seen as unnecessary”). Don’t complain about the new law. It was imposed due to actions by your peers. You might very well be responsible, but your friends are not. That’s why the law was passed, to protect the innocent people from irresponsible teens.

Writer backs objection to women’s event speaker

S

aturday’s newspaper carried two letters to the editor expressing opinions against Bishop Joseph Bambera’s opposition to Marjorie Margolies’ scheduled appearance at the University of Scranton. Are we to believe that Ms. Margolies’ presentation about women in politics will not include any mention of her pro-choice views? Even in the question-and-answer session? The bishop has every reason to be concerned. Far too many “views” are propagated to our youth in the name of “tolerance” while little thought is given to whether or not these youths have been given any moral basis with which to determine good from evil. Would it surprise any of you to know that less than 25 percent of our youths receive any religious education? The bad decisions they make corrupt their destinies. How many “bad choices” does a young woman make before she “chooses” to abort her child? There are obvious better choices than Ms. Margolies to talk about women in politics. Why not Congresswoman Michele Bachmann? She’s no longer running for president, and she has local ties. Robert L. Evans Sr. Wilkes-Barre

Hospital shouldn’t deny jobs to those who smoke

O

n Feb. 1, Geisinger Health System will stop hiring applicants who use tobacco. What does this mean for the future? There already is a nursing shortage; with Geisinger discriminating against applicants who use any type of tobacco, the shortage will grow. As a junior in high school and in the

Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technology Center’s Health Assistants program, I would like to be a registered nurse. I smoke though, so after college if I apply for a job with Geisinger, it will give me a nicotine test. If I fail, I will not get the job. In my mind if a person graduates from a nursing program in the top five, but he or she smokes, the person will be denied a nursing career with Geisinger, and Geisinger will lose out on an excellent nurse. If the shortage gets bigger, mistakes in the hospital will be a scary possibility. Many tragedies can occur with this new policy. Just because someone uses a type of tobacco doesn’t mean he or she should be judged and denied a job. I understand the health care system is doing this because of insurance, but smoking doesn’t always cause health problems. Smokers can live their whole lives with no problems, just like nonsmokers, and nonsmokers can get lung cancer without it being related to smoking. Shannon Holohan White Haven

Don’t give platform to pro-choice advocate

I

want to thank Bishop Joseph Bambera for his consistent pro-life stance in his homilies and for his participation in the March for Life in Washington. Also for asking the Rev. Kevin P. Quinn, the University of Scranton’s president, to cancel Ms. Marjorie Margolies’ invitation to be the keynote speaker at the “Ready to Run: Campaign Training for Women” program. Catholic institutions are not supposed to give “awards, honors or platforms” to those who oppose the church’s fundamental positions, particularly regarding abortion. I know people have asked: “Why don’t you attend the program? Ms. Margolies probably will not even mention abortion.” The bottom line is she doesn’t have to mention it. Why? Because she is coming to the Democratic stronghold of Scranton. The majority of women are largely liberals who are pro-choice (actually pro-abortion). On the other hand, you will never see Ms. Margolies presenting this program in

ho is Penn State? To answer the question, I would have to say that the fans who rioted because of football coach Joe Paterno’s firing are not Penn State. The Penn State University Board of Trustees, whose members made a politically correct and fatal decision to fire him, is not Penn State. Thomas Campbell once said, “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” Joe, who had such a monstrously positive impact on the well-being of this country, will never die. Those of you who join me in this feeling can proudly say, “We are – Penn State.” Mike Langan Stroud Township

Shelter those in need in diocesan buildings

I

thought churches received tax-exempt status because they were helping the poor and less fortunate? If that is the case, why doesn’t the bishop open up the houses the Diocese of Scranton “owns” to the homeless and to chronic drunks who want to make a change? That solves two problems: needed space for inebriates to change (helps keep the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre community from “overcrowding” services) and keeps the property as church-owned (by aiding those whom it is meant to serve). Or am I totally missing the boat on this one? Patrick Killian Plains Township

Two of Paterno’s 17 grandchildren also talked and shared the favorite moments collected among the rest of the grandkids — including one instance when Paterno mistakenly drove over a bicycle after returning home from work. Former defensive tackle Anthony Adams, who carried a program with a black-and-white picture of a smiling Paterno on the cover, said the service was befitting of his former coach, who loved to be surrounded by family and just talk. On the other hand, Paterno also was notorious for trying to avoid the spotlight himself. “He would’ve been embarrassed. He would’ve hated it,” Millen said. “He would’ve told us to shut up already.

zek and his sons met Paterno on campus and at other events. The last meeting in July between Kruczek’s youngest son and Paterno was at the campus creamery where the thencoach stopped in to pick up milk. The two struck up a conversation with Paterno asking the younger Kruczek how his father “Sonny” was. Kruczek ended his comments referring to the bond that developed between him and Paterno. “This thread may stretch and it may tangle, but it will never be broken,” said Kruczek. Some at the vigil never met Paterno and did not know Penn State without Paterno. “Joe Paterno has been the one constant that’s been there,” said Elliott Gregory, 28, of West Hazleton The Penn State alumnus and history teacher in the Hazleton Area School District came to pay his respects at the passing of Paterno, an event of historical significance for Gregory. “For me it’s one of the first times of going through something like this,” said Gregory.

and neither did mourners. Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant coach at the center of the abuse scandal, has been charged with molesting 10 boys over a pe-

riod of 15 years. He has pleaded not guilty and is out on bail, awaiting trial. Paterno was criticized in the days after Sandusky’s arrest for not going to authorities out-

At the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus in Lehman Township, Chancellor Charles Davis speaks during a candlelight vigil Wednesday to mark the death of former head football coach Joe Paterno.

Jackson The first motion Wednesday was to rescind the board’s action during the December meeting when it opened the position by an 8-1 vote and then to retain Jackson for a 28th season. Dr. Bruce Coslett, Dr. Bruce Goeringer

and Fred Parry voted in favor of the motion. Karen Kyle, Maureen Matiska, Charles Preece, Larry Schuler and Catherine Wega voted against it, and the motion failed 3-5. Goeringer was the only board member to vote against opening the position in December. The second motion was to affirm and ratify the decision to open the position and appoint a head coach as soon as possible. That passed 6-2, with Goeringer and Parry voting against it. Board member Colleen Slocum was

present at the meeting, but did not vote because she was not at the due process hearing for Jackson on Monday. Wega, the board president, said Slocum was out of state Monday. The board went into executive session immediately following the meeting.

Misericordia coach wins his 100th game on last-second layup by Ethan Eichhorst. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE — Trevor Woodruff had to watch the scoreboard stay at “6” for his squad through the first 10 minutes. That it ticked up to 62 just before the final MISERICORDIA buzzer was reason enough for the Misericordia coach to give a WILKES yell and a fist pump on Wednesday night. Ethan Eichhorst’s driving layup with 1.4 seconds left lifted the Cougars to a 62-60 win over King’s at Scandlon Gymnasium, delivering Woodruff his 100th coaching win at his alma mater. Woodruff, handed a gift bag for the milestone after the game, was happier that the Cougars (12-6, 4-3 Freedom) picked up their first conference road win of the season.

Nittany Nation united; Paterno laid to rest By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press Writer

PITTSBURGH — For years, Penn State University game days meant long lines of cars and RVs bearing fans making pilgrimages from all corners of Pennsylvania to a school right in the middle of the state, and by extension, to coach Joe Paterno, the man long regarded as its center. The school’s flagship campus, established in 1855 in the small town of State College and conceived as a place for farmers to receive a scientific education, sits in the state’s geographic center. But its physical presence is also woven throughout Pennsylvania, with two dozen campuses scattered across the state. So Paterno’s death from cancer on Sunday has created emotional ripples that have spread throughout the university’s broad network of alumni, both within the state and far beyond. In a state where professional sports loyalties are usually divided between

Alleghenys. Many alumni credit Paterno not just with winning national college football titles, but for helping to transform a rural agricultural college into a 21st century scientific and engineering powerhouse. “He, along with his wife Sue, helped transform a sleepy land grant institution in the center of a blue collar state into an academic giant. Penn State became an elite institution without becoming elitist in large part due to the leadership of this Ivy League-educated man from Brooklyn,” said Anthony Lubrano of Glenmoore, who graduated in 1982 and is seeking a seat on the school’s Board of Trustees. “His contributions to humanity far outweigh his notoriety on the gridiron.” Former Penn State receiver Kenny Jackson, who played on the 1982 national title team, recalled a coach who demanded at least as much from his players in the

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION

Lewis stars on court in ways few others can It is clear now the addition of Eugene Lewis elevated the Meyers basketball team past arch-rival GAR and over the top. He is always the star of the show, the guy you want to watch, the one who turns heads as fast as he turns games around – whether Lewis is doing it on a football field or a basketball court. Nobody’s courting him to shoot hoops after his high school days are done in a couple months. That’s because Lewis is on his way to play football for Penn State, where he’s destined to make the same impact as a wide receiver for the Nittany Lions as he did as a game-changer for Wyoming Valley West. “Basketball is just a sport for fun, for me,” Lewis said. “It’s not going to get me anywhere. It’s just something I love to do.” Meyers loves watching him do it. The Mohawks landed Lewis for this basketball season when his family moved from the Valley West school district and into Meyers territory after the football year finished. Then Lewis put the finishing touches on a Meyers program trying to remain king of the Wyoming Valley Conference Division II. He scored 24 points and had 15 rebounds Saturday against GAR in front of a standing room only crowd at Meyers High School in one of the most dominating personal performances of the young season. “My first time in that type of game, playing in that type of atmosphere, it was great,” Lewis, a senior, said. “There were so many people there. The rivalry’s great, so intense.” His initial impact on it was just as forceful, as he powered Meyers’ 54-48 victory and paved the way for GAR’s first defeat of the season. There was a magical moment in that game when Lewis plucked an errant shot out of the air, drove the length of the court with it as two GAR players snugly defended him, then hit an underhanded, finger-roll layup to impress the home crowd. “It’s a tough move, to go through two defenders,” said Rasheed Moore, one of the top returners from Meyers’ District 2 runner-up team of a year ago. It’s the type of move Lewis makes whenever he wants to, it seems. “There’s a time and a point where you’ve just got to be able to take over the game,” Lewis said, “and do whatever it takes to help your team win. I just use my athletic ability to the best of my ability.” His capability is admirable. So much so, Moore came out of the trainer’s room following his second-half injury trying to imitate Lewis’ look. OK, so that’s an exaggeration. It was pure coincidence that the white bandage team trainers used to circle Moore’s head in an effort to protect a cut above his eye resembled the white headband Lewis was wearing. But could you blame the rest of the Mohawks if they did try to impersonate a player who makes a habit of rising above the rest to make the magnitude of the moment his own? “It shows you what a Division I athlete is all about,” Meyers coach Pat Toole said afterwards. “As outstanding an athlete as you just saw, he’s a more impressive young man. He’s courteous, he looks you in the eye, he’s a great team kid.” It seems Lewis gives whatever team he plays for an extra boost. “We believed we were going to be back on top before he got here,” Moore said. “When he came, it helped us reach that next level.” It’s an altitude few others can attain, whether they’re trying to stop the takeoff or going along for the ride.

LOCAL COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Balanced offense lifts King’s to win By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- If they all end like this, King’s could get used to these tension-filled finishes. Four days after getting a buzzer-beater to win at Manhattanville, the Lady Monarchs gutted out a tough win at home against Misericordia. King’s held the Cougars to just 15 second-half points and held onto first place in the Freedom Conference with a 51-44 win Wednesday night at Scandlon Gymnasium. The Lady Monarchs (15-3, 7-0) won their eighth straight game and finished a sweep of the rest of the league in their first time through the schedule. King’s forced 24 Misericordia turnovers and held the Cougars scoreless in the final 2:45 after they had cut the lead to 45-44. “I think we wore them down, and I thought we had a lot of energy,” King’s coach Brian Donoghue said. “We were waiting for a spurt, got our spurt and converted on it.” It was the Misericordia women’s debut for interim coach Dave Martin, taking over for Tom Griffith, who resigned Tuesday. “We’re so lucky to have great kids. It’s their team,” said Martin, the school’s athletic director and former longtime men’s coach. “It hurts to lose -- nobody likes to lose. But hopefully we learn from this and we’ll grow a little bit. And I know we will.” King’s held Misericordia’s Christine Marks, the league’s leading scorer to 11 points -10 below her season average. The senior still finished with

Sayre only needed to get five teams points in the match and the Black Knights would have won on tiebreaking criteria of having most wins. But a bout victory by 15 points seemed a little far away with him just holding a 5-2 lead when the referee slapped the mat. “But it’s about the team not me,” Sayre added. With the win, the Black Knights (4-0, D-II) can secure the division title and the conference’s No. 1 seed in the District 2 Class 2A Duals Tournament with victories over Hanover Area on Saturday and Wyoming Area on Feb. 1. The Mountaineers (4-1 D-II) are now tied with Wyoming Area as the only teams with one loss in the division -- the two will meet Saturday at Dallas. “We have some business to take care of there,” Lehman coach Tom Williams said about his next two opponents. “We’re just happy for the kids and happy for where the pro-

gram is right now.” Sayre’s victory was the most important on the night, but there were several actionpacked bouts – with four being decided by one point – during a dual, which consisted of seven lead changes and three ties. Lehman’s Austin Harry (138) and Jake Winters (145) staked the team to a 7-0 advantage two bouts into the dual. The Mountaineers answered with a major decision at 152 by Connor Martinez and a fall from Kris Roccograndi at 160 to open a 10-7 lead. A match pitting a pair of district champions was next at 170 with the Knights’ Nick Shelley holding on for a 4-3 win over Bill Dixon to even the score at 10-10. After Derek Dragon won by decision at 182, another thrilling match came up at 195 when Dallas’ Garrett Artsma defeated Brady Butler 2-1 in a match that had to go to the final overtime, a rideout period as Artsma earned the victory with an escape to even the score at 13. Lehman had to forfeit at 220 and Dallas went up 19-13. The teams alternated pins at the

a double-double, pulling down a game-high 10 rebounds. Paige Carlin, Marissa Manning and Samantha Simcox all finished with 10 points for the Lady Monarchs. Jesse Robinson scored 12 to lead the Cougars (9-8, 5-2) while Tyann McDaniel added 10. Despite the coaching change, the Cougars were not out of sorts in the early going, shooting 46 percent from the field and taking a 29-27 lead into halftime. Things changed in the second half. Both offenses struggled out of the locker room. King’s was scoreless in the first three minutes and change before a Brittany Muscatell three-pointer. But the Cougars couldn’t take full advantage and led just 34-30 before the Lady Monarchs were able to put together a 13-0 run to take the lead for good, blanking Misericordia for nearly eight minutes. “Honestly, I think we got a little tired,” Martin said. “I think we got a little bit out of sync offensively. We actually put something new in today, a new wrinkle, and I think we ended up going to that maybe too much. Because when it got tight, I don’t think we were as comfortable.

The Wilkes women’ basketball team fell to Eastern in Freedom Conference play. The Lady Colonels drop to

next two weights and with four matches left, the Mountaineers held a 25-19 advantage. But Lehman won three of the final four bouts to stay unbeaten in the division. “This was a good team effort,” Williams noted. A big win for Dallas came from Jordan Visneski, who pinned Steve Bardo in 16 seconds at 126 to give the Mountaineers a 31-26 advantage with one match left. The win was just Visneski’s second of the season. “I don’t mind losing a good match as long as it’s a good match. It was a good match, both teams wrestled well,” Dallas coach Mike Richards said. “(Visneski) came out and did what he had to do. It would’ve been a nice Cinderella finish if we won the match, but that’s wrestling.”

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Eastern 68, Wilkes 55

Visiting Eastern used a stingy defense and some timely shooting to hand Wilkes its first Freedom Conference loss of the season. With the loss, Wilkes falls to 13-4 overall and 6-1 in Freedom play. Eastern improves to 12-5 overall and 5-2 in conference contests and remain one game behind the Colonels.

“It was big because we talked about getting the next step in our growth, and that was winning a conference road game,” Woodruff said. “We’ve proven we can win, we can win conference games, now let’s win a conference game on the road. And for us to do that, I think that will be a big boost to our confidence going into the second half (of the league schedule).” Initially, it looked like it was going to take overtime for the Cougars to pull it off. King’s senior Kyle Stackhouse calmly sank two free throws with 8.3 seconds left following a Donovan Womack steal to tie it up at 60-60. Misericordia called timeout after getting across half-court with just 4.4 ticks left. Understandably, the call was to get the ball in the hands of Eichhorst, the senior forward from Hazleton Area who leads the team in scoring. Eichhorst (game-high 17 points) beat his man one-on-one up high and drove in for the uncontested score. A desperation

We did what we wanted to do,” King’s coach J.P. Andrejko said of the decisive play. “Eichhorst made a great one-on-one move. Unfortunately we were slow getting to him.

The Cougars outscored King’s 23-11 in the final 10 minutes and actually led 29-28 at the break. “I thought we were a little too excited at the beginning of the game,” Woodruff said. “We were loose at both ends of the floor. Poor execution offensively and defensively allowed them to get clean looks. And like normal, they made them.” Stackhouse (16 points), Keyton Winder (11), Kyle Hammonds (10) and Tim O’Shea (10) all hit double figures for the Monarchs (8-10, 3-4).

James leads Heat to win

Colts hire Ravens’ Pagano

The Associated Press

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — LeBron James scored 32 points, including the game’s last six from the free throw line, to lead the Miami Heat to a 101-98 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. The Heat trailed 98-95 after a 3-pointer by Detroit’s Jonas Jerebko, but James made two free throws to cut the deficit to one with 1:19 left. After Damien Wilkins fumbled the ball out of bounds for the Pistons, James drove straight at Austin Daye, drawing another foul and putting Miami up 99-98. He made two more free throws with 9.4 seconds remaining after Detroit’s Greg Monroe missed inside. Cavaliers 91, Knicks 81 CLEVELAND — Anderson Varejao had 16 rebounds, a powerful dunk down the stretch and outhustled New York’s big men as the Cavaliers ended a four-game losing streak with a 91-81 win over the struggling New York Knicks, who lost for the seventh time in eight games Wednesday night. Antawn Jamison added 15 points for the Cavs, who won their ninth straight at home over New York. The Knicks haven’t won in Cleveland since 2006.

Wizards 92, Bobcats 75 WASHINGTON — Nick Young scored 20 points, and Andray Blatche had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Washington past Charlotte in Randy Wittman’s first game as the Wizards’ coach Wittman took over for the fired Flip Saunders on Tuesday, and guided the team without the benefit of a practice. Saunders’ lead assistant also has coached Minnesota and Cleveland.

did not support the termination of Coach Jackson. Some Board members understood that, but, apparently, not all of them. The Board members made their original decision based upon incomplete information, but now they no longer have that excuse. Ignoring the evidence presented at the hearing is a terrible lesson in civics that these Board members should not have taught the students they were elected to serve. We have a number of options and we are considering all of them. We appreciate the fact the some Board members listened, kept an open mind and took this process seriously.” Borland said those options could involve the courts. “I think the statement speaks for itself,” Borland said. “There’s the right go to the Court of Common Pleas over this. We have both federal and state options.” About a dozen people turned out for the early morning meeting, well under the few hundred that were at Monday’s hearing and the December school board meeting. Nick Zapoticky, the president of the Gridiron Club, and his son Ryan, the starting quarterback, were both hoping that Jackson would be brought back. “Very disappointed,” Nick Zapoticky said. “This isn’t an action against Ted Jackson Sr., it’s an action against Dallas football. In my opinion, they are giving Dallas football the death penalty because they are removing coaches from seventh grade up, and to rebuild that with one prospective coach coming from out of the area or a coach who last coached four years ago doesn’t bode well for Dallas football.” Ryan Zapoticky was the only player to attend the meeting. However, Jackson received noticeable support from his players at the December board meeting and at Monday’s hearing. “It’s going to be a large blow,” Zapoticky, a junior, said of the possibility of Jackson being replaced. “A lot of people are talking about not playing. … It’s going to be bad.” William Gately Jr. arrived shortly after the meeting ended. His son, Bill, is a sophomore on the football team and also plays baseball.

classroom as he did on the field. “I just remember how important it was that we got educated. I know it sounds clichéd, but I saw the man do it every day. That man made sure I got an education,” Jackson said. In a larger sense, Paterno continued a tradition that began when the school’s founders challenged the assumptions of the mid-19th century.

Dr. Richard Coslett made a motion to vote on retaining Ted Jackson as Dallas football coach Wednesday.

He said he had to get his son a gym membership because the weight room has been closed since the position was opened.Jacksonalsowasthe weightlifting coach. “My son is extremely happy with the coaching situation,” Gately said. “He loves Ted Jackson Sr., he loves Junior (Ted’s son, assistant coach Ted Jackson Jr.) He has never said one thing bad about any of the coaching staff.” Goeringer opened the 25minute meeting asking why there was no agenda available. When Wega said that there was only one item on the agenda, Goeringer continued to insist copies be made. He also asked for copies of the two resolutions. Goeringer wanted the board to vote on the resolutions together, but school board solicitor Ben Jones said that only one motion could be voted on at a time. Kylethenreadastatement saying in part the vote “isn’t about being super-sensitive or misunderstanding each other. It is about authority, it is about respect, it is about holding ourselves accountable to a higher standard.” At Monday’s hearing, Dallas high school principal Jeffrey Shaffer testified that Jackson publicly embarrassed athletic director Nancy Roberts when pregame introductions were neglected during a home District 2 Class 3A playoff game against Scranton Prep. Shaffer gave Jackson a negative review at the end of the season. After the vote to rescind opening the position and to retain Jackson failed, Kyle read the resolution to affirm and ratify the decision to open the position and appoint a head coach as soon as possible. Coslett voted against retaining Jackson during an April 2009 meeting. Jackson was kept by a 5-4 vote back then. He also voted to open the position in December, but changed his vote after Monday’s hearing. “I sat there with an open mind Monday,” Coslett said. “I sat there as part of the quote-unquote jury. I believe his case was well stated.”

“The goal was to apply scientific principles to farming, a radical departure from the traditional curriculum grounded in mathematics, rhetoric, and classical languages,” Penn State’s official history notes. And though the last few months of Paterno’s life were tarnished by the child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, some said that the time has come to judge him on the full circle of his career. Sandusky is accused of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year span, sometimes in the football building. Thousands of people paid trib-

ute to Paterno during a candlelight vigil outside Penn State’s administration building Sunday night. Former players were among those who spoke, including Oakland Raiders offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski. “When I think back on Joe Paterno’s legacy, the events of the last two months won’t even cross my mind,” Wisniewski said. Today, Penn State has more than 557,000 living alumni and it’s become one of the largest employers in the state. But Paterno and the school managed to hold on to some admirable small town qualities.

“At the end of the day he was just another dad, too,” said Bob Branstetter, who grew up in State College and was on the high school hockey team with Paterno’s son, Scott. “There was never an air around Joe Paterno. He was iconic, but he was just a normal guy.” Chris Wesling, 22, a college senior from Pittsburgh studying psychology, said the school has a strong sense of togetherness, despite its far flung physical nature. “The branch campuses help,” Wesling said, “and sports is a universal language.”

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts hired Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as their new head coach on Wednesday. The team said Pagano will be introduced at a news conference on Thursday. It will be the first head coaching job for the 51-yearold Pagano, who has been a career assistant until now with stops in Oakland and Cleveland in the NFL and stints at schools including Miami and North Carolina. He replaces Jim Caldwell, who was fired after the Colts’ 2-14 season in which quarterback Peyton Manning never played a down as he recovered from neck surgery. The move is just the latest in a dizzying series of changes by owner Jim Irsay. The Colts fired Caldwell last week after three seasons. The team went to the Super Bowl during Caldwell’s first year, but this year locked up the No. 1 overall draft pick with a horrid performance that also cost team vice chairman Bill Polian and his son, general manager Chris, their jobs.

PENGUINS

INTRODUCING Turnover halts win streak THE AREA’S EXCLUSIVE...

By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins had just completed a twogoal comeback in the third period to tie the Providence Bruins and force overtime on Wednesday. Then the unexpected happened. Just 27 seconds into the extra period, defenseman Robert Bortuzzo had the puck stripped from his stick in front of his net by Bruins forward Craig Cunningham. Cunningham promptly skated around Bortuzzo and lifted a shot over Brad Thiessen to hand the Penguins a quick 4-3 overtime loss that ended their six-game win streak. The Penguins did gain a point on the night to move into sole possession of first place in the East Division – one point ahead of idle Hershey. Wednesday’s game ended on a rough note, and it didn’t start too smooth, either. For the 13th time in 21 home games, the Penguins allowed their opponent to score the opening goal in the first period. This time it took Providence just 42 seconds to find the back of the net on a shot by Jordan Caron to put the Penguins down 1-0 early in the game. “We didn’t have a whole lot of energy in the first period,” said Joey Mormina, who had a goal later in the game. “Giving up an early goal again kind of set us back.” It was also the third time in the last 10 home games that the Penguins have allowed a goal in the first minute. “We have to look into that. What the answer is… I don’t know yet,” coach John Hynes said. The Bruins went up 2-0 near the end of the period when the Penguins got caught on a line

change, giving defenseman David Warsofsky plenty of time to line up a shot from the high slot. Colin McDonald cut the lead to 2-1 a minute later after Matt Rust dug the puck out along the boards. Rust dished the puck to McDonald, who skated away from two defenders into open ice in the slot and placed a wrister inside the near post. After Providence went up 3-1 at 4:13 of the second period and forced Hynes to replace Scott Munroe with Thiessen, both teams had extensive opportunities with the two-man advantage. Providence went first with a 47-second five-on-three power play, but the red hot Penguins penalty kill that was a perfect 12for-12 in its last three games kept the Bruins off the board. Three minutes later, the Penguins received 1:44 of power play time with the two-man advantage. They put pressure on Bruins’ goaltender Anton Khudobin, who stopped all five shots he saw, including a flash of the glove to snare a Geoff Walker shot as the power play expired. Even though they failed to score on the power play, the Penguins did come away with a momentum boost. “We spent the whole time in the offensive zone and we had a shooting mentality,” Hynes said. “Even though we didn’t score, it wasn’t a negative because we were doing the right things.” The Penguins were far from finished. After the penalty kill kept the Bruins off the board for a second

five-on-three to start the third period, Mormina gave the Penguins life when he gained the puck along the boards, skated into the faceoff circle and placed a wrist shot past Khudobin to make it 3-2 in the first five minutes. McDonald earned an assist on the play, giving him seven points in the last four games (four goals, three assists). Less than three minutes later, Geoff Walker evened things up when he skated out from the corner and ripped a shot that bounced off the post and into the back of the net to make it 3-3 and force overtime. NOTES • F Eric Tangradi and F Steve MacIntyre were both reassigned by Pittsburgh on Wednesday and in the lineup. Also on Wednesday, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton loaned F Nick Petersen to Wheeling and released C Cody Chupp and D Peter Merth from their PTO’s. Chupp and Merth both reported to Wheeling. • D Boris Valabik (injury), D Carl Sneep (injury), C Brian Gibbons, RW Keven Veilleux (injury), D Alexandre Picard (injury) were scratched for the Penguins. • With his goal, Geoff Walker extended his scoring streak to four games (three goals, two assists).

Fed interest rate decree ‘best guess’

B R I E F

Markets gain on Fed news

Stocks closed at their highest level in more than eight months after the Federal Reserve pledged to keep interest rates near zero for three more years. Stocks had been negative all morning, but turned positive on the news. Bond yields fell, indicating stronger demand. More than three stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was heavier than average at 4.4 billion shares.

By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve’s announcement that it is unlikely to raise its benchmark interest rate until late 2014 is simply its “best guess,” Ben Bernanke said Wednesday. The Fed chairman made clear during a news conference Wednesday that the decision to leave interest rates unBernanke changed for three more years was not ironclad. The central bank’s ability to forecast that far out is limited, Bernanke says, and the Fed could adjust the timetable for when it will raise rates if economic conditions change. Still, he said the U.S. economy remains weak and all signs suggest the Fed won’t change its record-low rate for another three years. The central bank has kept its key rate at a record low near zero for three years. Bernanke also said the Fed has not ruled out bolder steps to boost economic growth, such as a third round of bond purchases. “If inflation is going to remain below target for an extended period and unemployment progress is very slow ... there is a case for additional policy action,” he said. “I would not say we are out of ammunition. We still have tools.” Prior to the news conference, the Fed slightly reduced its outlook for U.S. economic growth this year, to between 2.2 percent and 2.7 percent.

Netflix regains footing

Netflix regained U.S. customers in the fourth quarter as the video subscription began to recover from a revolt against a big price increase. Figures released Wednesday show Netflix Inc. ended December with 24.4 million subscribers in the U.S., 600,000 more than at the end of September. Netflix lost 800,000 subscribers last summer after raising its U.S. prices by as much as 60 percent. The company made $41 million, or 73 cents per share, in the final three months of last year. Revenue climbed 47 percent from the previous year to $876 million.

Wal-Mart reducing greeters

By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO

N

Wal-Mart Stores, the world’s largest retailer, has removed greeters from the overnight shift at its U.S. supercenters, chipping away at a 30-year tradition of making sure all shoppers are welcomed to the store. The move will save money and ensure Wal-Mart has the right staffing levels during peak and non-peak hours, David Tovar, a spokesman, said. For the past six months, Wal-Mart has been reassigning greeters at the company’s approximately 3,000 U.S. supercenters from the third shift, which runs from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., to other jobs, he said.

EW YORK — J.C. Penney is permanently marking down all of its merchandise by at least 40 percent so shoppers will no longer have to wait for a sale to get the lowest prices in its stores. Penney said Wednesday that it is getting rid of the hundreds of sales it offers each year in favor of a simpler approach to pricing. On Feb. 1, the retailer is rolling out a three-tiered strategy that offers “Every Day” low pricing, “Month-Long Value” discounts on select merchandise each month and clearance deals called “Best Prices” during the first and the third Friday of every month when many shoppers get paid. The plan, the first major move by

Home contracts slip

The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes fell in December after hitting the highest level in a year and a half a month earlier. The National Association of Realtors says its index of sales agreements fell 3.5 percent last month to a reading of 96.6. That’s down from November’s reading of 100.1. But the reading is still the second highest since April 2010, the last month that buyers could qualify for a federal home-buying tax credit.

ONLINE FILE sharing has always been a bit on the shady side. It’s really easy to stray into extralegal territory, and you might not even know that what you’re doing is out of

These include services such as RapidShare, FileSonic, and, until recently, MegaUpload.

former Apple executive Ron Johnson since he became Penney’s CEO in November, is similar to Wal-Mart’s iconic everyday Johnson low pricing strategy. The difference is that Penney’s goal isn’t to undercut competitors, but rather to offer customers more predictable pricing. “Pricing is actually a pretty simple and straightforward thing,” Johnson told the Associated Press. “Customers will not pay literally a penny more than the true value of the product.” Penney’s plan comes as stores are

struggling to wean Americans off of the profit-busting bargains that they have come to expect in the weak economy. The move is risky, though, because shoppers who love to bargain-hunt may be turned off by the absence of sales. Penney has been an especially big promoter. The company offered 590 sales events last year and drew about 72 percent of its revenue from merchandise that was discounted by 50 percent or more.

The circumstances and timing are interesting – the arrest occurred within 24 hours of widespread protests against the controversial SOPA and PIPA acts, designed to interdict online piracy. In addition, “Dotcom” is a citizen of Holland who resides in New Zealand – the United States is reportedly claiming jurisdiction because some of MegaUpload’s servers were located in the United States. Regardless of the truth of the allegations or the legality of the action, it will be interesting to see how the case plays out – and not just for the sake of curiosity or entertainment – the precedent set by the case could have a lasting impact on both the Internet and copyright laws.

There may be some freezing drizzle this morning in some areas, but the main event starts later this afternoon. As warmer air surges northward, we can expect rain to arrive by the evening rush hour. With temperatures rising into the 40s, tonight, rain will continue well past midnight. The rain will be ending Friday morning with amounts ranging from 4 to 8 tenths of an inch or what could have been over a half foot of snow. Clearing skies Friday afternoon bring dry weather for Saturday with only flurries by Sunday. The atmosphere most of next week looks rather tame as well. - Tom Clark

Homework help equals big business By JAY PRICE McClatchy Newspapers

EW YORK — As a 20something,

Erin

Turner believes she

made all the right moves dating wise. She graduated from college and spent three and a half years with a boyfriend before they moved in together. Their cohabitation bliss last-

ed only eight months. “We broke up because when you live with someone, everything comes to the surface,” said Turner, who remains single in Chicago as her 30th birthday approaches in March. “You start to see how people handle confrontation, financial realities, challenges, the housework load. If we had been married we would have been divorced, or fully on our way.” While Turner hopes to marry one day, she’s not sweating it at the moment. Her

parents divorced when she was young, and she doesn’t want marriage badly enough to settle. She’d be sad if she never married, but she wouldn’t “implode.” Heading into 2012, trend watchers note that barely half of all adults in the United States are married, and the median age at the time of a first marriage has never been higher — slightly more

than 26 years old for women and nearly 29 for men. In 1960, 72 percent of married adults 18 and older were married. The percentage fell to 57 percent in 2000, and today it’s just 51 percent, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of census See RING, Page 2C

Single life has its perks for local residents By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

At 48 years old, Maria Lott of Berwick has accepted the fact that her “single” status is a point of contention among friends and, mostly, family, but she’s hit the point where she has stopped caring. “I date, sure, but I just haven’t found the right guy, and I try not to stress over it as much any more. Will I ever get married? I would certainly like to, but I’m prepared to not have that option.” Singlehood is becoming increasingly common among older adults. Though many local singles say they are not completely restricting themselves to a life without matrimony, the time it takes to get to possible wedded bliss has become a less bitter pill. “You’ve got to realize that life definitely is about relationships, but not just romantic ones,” said Marie Lynn Brennan,

48, of Ashley. “That’s what I’ve come to appreciate over the years. I surround myself with a lot of great friends.” With age comes wisdom, Lott said, and a better handle on what’s desired in a partnership. “As we get older our tastes are more refined, and I think that makes it harder. At the end of every relationship I’ve pointed to something and said either ‘OK, that’s what I do want’ or ‘That’s what I don’t want.’ It makes it hard because within the first couple minutes of meeting someone you might pick up on something that you just know you can’t deal with in a relationship, and the whole thing is immediately off.” There are definite perks to single life, mainly independence. “There is a certain freedom to it that can be appreciated,” said Faye Koch, 32, of Wilkes-Barre. “I’m not accountable for anyone else and can do what I want.” Koch often takes advantage of this

RALEIGH, N.C. — Helping students with their homework, it turns out, can be big business. That’s how Advanced Instructional Systems has quietly become one of N.C. State University’s largest and fastestgrowing spinoffs. Now the company is making plans to build on its basic online service, using information it learns about each student from answers they get wrong to create a form of instant, customized tutoring that’s available around the clock. The company, which offers an online assignment and testing service for university and high school students called WebAssign, was started by a small group of acaFOTOLIA.COM demics on campus in the IMAGE late 1990s. The university holds rights to part of the underlying computer coding and company trademark and licenses those to the company, which is owned by a handful of its employees. AIS moved from the main campus onto the public-private Centennial Campus in 2003 with just a dozen employees, said John S. Risley, a physics professor and the company’s chief executive. It has grown to nearly 150 employees now — many of them with science, math and engineering degrees — and in the year that just ended passed two milestones: its 5 millionth student user and one billionth answer processed for homework assignments, tests and practice problems. In any given semester now, more than half a million students are using WebAssign. It has grown so much that in December, Risley and the company’s other owners felt it was time to appoint a board of directors, he said. “When you are a startup and you grow quickly, it becomes clear you need the help and experience,” Risley said. If the company ever goes public, NCSU would get a share of the money raised, but that may not happen, at least not any time soon. In the tech world, many private companies seem to be aimed at going public from the minute they’re founded, but Risley said there aren’t any plans for that. He said the owners are interested in education and like the direction the company’s going. For now, institutions sign up for WebAssign, and course instructors control the assignments. The company plans to begin marketing directly to students and to offer them an enhanced service that verges on using artificial intelligence to craft an online tutor. The company can have access to hundreds or even thousands of answers for a given student, Risley said, and can sift and monitor that data to tailor their learning. Analyzing several questions students get wrong in a physics class, for example, can show whether they’re getting an answer wrong because they don’t understand the concept or they have a deficiency in a specific math skill. If they happened to have used WebAssign for, say, an algebra class a semester earlier, that would further expand the information that the system has for analyzing what they know and what they need to work on. The company’s current service gets solid reviews from the instructors who use it in their classes. “They got in fairly early, I think, and as a consequence developed what is probably the most mature system for online homework of this type that’s available,” said David Pengra, a senior lecturer at the University of Washington’s physics department, where he oversees graduate assistants who teach up to 50 sections of introductory undergraduate physics labs. At Penn State, the company’s service is used in seven large physics classes with a total of 3,500 students. It freed the 60 or so graduate teaching assistants to do substantially more teaching because they no longer have to grade a couple million homework answers each semester, said John Hopkins, a senior instructor. It also allowed the university to boost the staffing of a night-time learning lab where students can come for help from one or two graduate assistants to eight or See HOMEWORK, Page 2C

data. The share of marrieds could dip below half in a few years as single-person households, single parents and couples living together outside the bounds of legal marriage multiply. The number of new marriages in the United States fell 5 percent just from 2009 to 2010, a wrinkle that may or may not relate to the bad economy, Pew researcher D’Vera Cohn said. The decline is spread among age groups but is most dramatic among Turner’s generation. Nearly three out of every five adults ages 18 to 29 were married in 1960, but now only one in five is. Marriage also is on the decline in other developed countries, especially those in Europe, and the trend is starting to take root elsewhere around the globe. In Mexico City, for instance, a recent proposal would allow couples to “test drive” marriage with a two-year contract, said Ann Mack, a trend watcher for JWT Intelligence, an arm of the marketing giant. If the trial marriage didn’t work out, the parties could walk away without lengthy divorce proceedings. Women, in particular, are experiencing a mass marriage rethink, Mack said. “A growing number of women are taking an alternate life route that doesn’t include marriage as an essential checkpoint,” she said. Retreat, maybe. But not outright abandonment, said Cohn and Stephanie Coontz, who wrote “Marriage: A History” and teaches family studies at Evergreen State University in Olympia, Wash. “We as a society have to recognize that people do still get married but cycle into marriage later and may cycle out of marriage,” she said. “I think marriage is perceived as a very desirable good but no longer a necessity.” In New York, 30-year-old Grace Bello loves kids. Her mom

was 30 when she gave birth to her, but Bello didn’t have the American dream of a picket fence, husband and 2.5 children in her head growing up in Cupertino, Calif. She recently broke up with a guy she had been dating casually for a few weeks and is busily pursuing a freelance-writing career. “Not getting married wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world,” Bello said. “I think the worstcase scenario would be a loveless marriage that ends in divorce and to be a single mom supporting several kids. I’d rather be single for the rest of my life.” There’s a lot to like about living single, said Bella DePaulo, who wrote the book “Singled Out.” “We’re so used to, as a society, thinking about life in terms of what it means to be coupled and married that we miss out on all the ways in which living single has some real attractions, like having your own space,” said DePaulo, who at 58 is happily single herself. Among the more dramatic developments is a 17-point marriage disparity along education lines. Nearly two-thirds of all adults with college degrees, or 64 percent, are married, compared with 47 percent with high school degrees or less, according to the Pew snapshot released Dec. 14. Fifty years ago, college graduates and those who had not gone beyond high school were about equally likely to be married. For less educated and lowerearning women in particular, Coontz said marriage is riskier than it used to be. “Men’s real wages have fallen,

and they face a lot of job insecurity, so a woman who would have found a high-school graduate a pretty damn good catch in 1960 now has to say to herself, ‘Would it really be smart of me to marry this guy?’ She’s choosing to focus on her own earning power.” A separate Pew survey released last year found that while nearly 40 percent of respondents said marriage is becoming obsolete, 61 percent of those who were not married would like to be someday. “I need to support a future family,” said Vince Tornero, a 23year-old senior at Ohio State University in Columbus. “I want to have kids, but I can’t have kids if I don’t have money.” Pew also found that marriage statistics vary by race, with 55 percent of whites, 48 percent of Hispanics but just 31 percent of blacks married. “I thought I’d be married by now, honestly,” said Keisha Pickett, who is 31, black and single in Tampa, Fla. “In my circle of friends, they haven’t necessarily given up on it, but they’re scared. You give it your all, and it could all blow up in your face one day.” Pickett is dating but has no special someone. “I had a honeybunch up until about four months ago. We had been back and forth for, like, three years,” she said. “It just came to a point where I felt like it was forced. I’m very outgoing and ambitious, and he was kind of a complacent, in-the-house guy.” The type is familiar to Mack, who notes a rise in the “omega” male, that perpetual adolescent of Judd Apatow movie fame. He’s fond of beer, video games and women in charge. Pickett, who runs her own public relations company, isn’t interested. “You want a honey who wants to go here or there and isn’t complaining about it all the time,” she said. “It was like pulling teeth. I couldn’t waste any more time.”

nine, all without additional cost. “And that lab gets used a lot,” he said. Students benefit, too, he said, because they get instant feedback on their answers and, the way instructors there configure WebAssign, can try five more times for a diminishing amount of credit. That instant feedback makes it easier for students to know whether they have grasped a concept or not, he said. “That’s really important, because they know whether they’ve made a mistake immediately, in-

Some might view such trips as lonely. Not Koch. “I might bring someone, I might not. Either way I share the trip with people I care about anyway. If I come home from somewhere I went by myself I’ve got plenty of pictures and stories to tell my family and friends.” While many make the most of where they’re at in life while

Mom of preteen is miffed that birthday party was a shopping spree Dear Abby: My 12-year-old daughter, “Mandy,” was invited to a friend’s birthday party along with 12 other girls. They were told to meet at the mall where they’d “go shopping” together, then go for a sleepover afterward. The birthday girl told her friends to bring money as gifts. Well, she raked in more than $300 then proceeded to spend it all on herself while her friends stood and watched. Mandy returned home the next day and told me that although the girl spent the money on herself, her mom did buy them each a beverage. Abby, I gave my daughter $20 to go to the party, thinking the money

DEAR ABBY ADVICE would be for all of their fun — not the birthday girl’s financial gain. I thought your readers might want to learn from my mistake. — Horrified in Wichita Dear Horrified: While this may have been shocking to you, the kind of party you have described may be acceptable to your daughter and her circle of friends. The birthday girl’s intentions could have been made more clear — she requested money as gifts and instructed everyone to meet at the mall. However, they accepted the invitation on her terms. I hope they

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

were fed after the mall crawl because they must have been starving. Dear Abby: My dad died unexpectedly last year, three months before my 18th birthday. He had been kicked out of the house a few months prior to that because he was an alcoholic who destroyed everything he ever cared about. He froze to death, alone. My boyfriend is has been my only source of support since Dad died. Mom ignores everything and has left me alone to go through all of this, spending my Social Security on vacations we could never have afforded before. My best friend is away at school in a different state and I’m more alone than ever. How am I supposed to survive all this alone? — Always Alone

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Alone: Please accept my sympathy for the tragic loss of your father, who paid the ultimate price for his addiction. If you’re still in school, counseling may be available for you if there is a counselor on staff. Because your mother is emotionally unavailable and your best friend is out of state, your friend’s mother might be willing to listen and advise you during this difficult period. Dear Abby: My mother-in-law is a widow. She no longer wants to be addressed as Mrs. because she is not married. I thought that once married you were always a Mrs. unless you choose to be a Ms. Isn’t it proper for a widow to be addressed as Mrs.? — Daughter-In-Law in Washington State

Dear Daughter-In-Law: As a widow your mother-in-law can continue to use her married name — or adopt any name she chooses. If she prefers not to be called Mrs. her wishes should be respected. Some widows prefer to be called “Mrs. John Jones” for the rest of their lives, while others do not. If your mother-in-law prefers “Ms. Betty Jones,” that’s fine, too. It’s a personal choice.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed 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’ll let go of the past and turn toward the future. You have a sense that tomorrow will be better, and you’re right about that. Free yourself to hop on a trend, move with forward thinking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The events of the day highlight your softer side. Progress depends on listening closely to the voice of your intuition, which can be perceived through the muscles of your body. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your first impression will be on target, though you may forget about it as a relationship develops. So write down your thoughts now, and tuck them away to review later. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Objectivity will be necessary. There will be a reason to practice the Zen art of detachment. Better to pull back emotionally than to let your feelings overpower your good judgment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The ideal teacher makes you feel good about yourself. A mentor will be most helpful now, as there will be a problem to solve, or an attitude to adjust. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are times when your subconscious mind may be more powerful and a lot sneakier than your conscious mind. That’s why it helps to get in touch with what you’re going through. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Fun will help your life, but only if you’re getting to know the right people. Go where you feel welcome. If you have to pretend in order to fit in, it’s not a good fit.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be an inspector of sorts. You’ll notice what needs to be fixed and report on what you see. The problematic area might be in your own life or someone else’s. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are special features of your life that you may want to share with the people close to you. In order to remember the topics of conversation you most want to bring up, make a list. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may be bored for a short time, until you realize that your environment, no matter how stale it may seem, is always a playground for your physical and mental exploration. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Carefully choose your business allies. You don’t have to put them through a test to recognize the good ones. You’re savvy and street smart enough to know who will be good for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your good luck will center on the helpful people in your life, including partners, acquaintances, teachers, counselors and clergy. Ask for attention, especially by posing interesting questions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 26). You’ll be happy with the progress of relationships through February and March. You’ll be strong in business this summer. Be sure to invest in your own fun times, as well. You may have extra expenses involving travel and entertainment in July. Family will appreciate your generosity. Cancer and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 11, 3, 39 and 6.
