Aid slash by Komen sparking backlash

Planned Parenthood gets help when the cancer charity cuts off its funding. By DAVID CRARY Associated Press

NEW YORK — Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the renowned breast-cancer charity, faced an escalating backlash Thursday over its decision to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood. Some of Komen’s local affiliates are openly upset, and at least one top official has quit, Brinker reportedly in protest. Meanwhile, Komen has been deluged with negative emails and Handel Facebook postings, accusing it of knuckling under to pressure from anti-abortion groups, since The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Komen was halting grants that Planned Parenthood affiliates used for breast exams and related services. The grants totaled $680,000 last year. While not directly affected by the Komen Foundation’s decision, the president of Planned Parenthood of Northeast and Mid-Penn, which serves the Wyoming Valley, says the orga-

Allegations were made that the W-B mayor approved or authorized the hiring of relatives for summer jobs

Panel will not investigate Leighton By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The Pennsylvania Ethics Commission will not conduct a full investigation into the hiring practices of Mayor Tom Leighton. That decision was made by the commission on Monday and letters were sent to the complainant and Leighton. The complainant’s name was redacted on the copy of the letter obtained by The Times Leader. The commission received alle-

gations in September that Leighton violated the state Public Official and Employee Ethics Act by hiring his children and other relatives to summer jobs. It was alleged Leighton used his position to benefit himself and/or members of his immediate family by approving or authorizing the hiring of his children. The commission’s investigative division conducted a preliminary inquiry that revealed “all intern hirings for the (city) were conducted by the city’s director

Polachek Gartley also ordered Issermoyer to serve three years probation. Issermoyer pleaded guilty to the charges in November. According to court papers, on Oct. 10, 2010, police said Rachael Paden reported that she noticed jewelry missing from her residence, and checked local pawn shops to find her missing pieces. In another incident, police said that on March 24, 2011, they learned from Stanley Carter of Drums that someone broke into his home and removed signed blank checks from his kitchen. That same day, police were also alerted to the report of a suspicious person in Dorrance Township. Dave Lehman reported to police an unknown man came to his home and began looking into windows when Lehman didn’t answer the door.

SUGAR NOTCH

State grant will aid 2 projects By SUSAN BETTINGER Times Leader Correspondent

SUGAR NOTCH – The borough will receive a $110,000 state grant that can be used for both demolition and road rehabilitation, borough officials said Wednesday night. At its monthly meeting, council voted to change its building demolition project from Main Street to Mill Street. The borough must use the grant by the end of 2012. The property on Mill Street, which borough officials believe is a safety hazard, is owned by a woman who now resides in a nursing home. The building has been a safety hazard for the past five years, although the owner lived in the home up until a year

and a half ago. She refused in the past to sign over the building to the borough, so that it could legally have the structure demolished. The borough is looking to file a complaint stating the building is a safety hazard. The owner would then be responsible for any fines imposed on the property. Mayor William Davis said that in lieu of the fines, the owner might agree to sign the property over to the borough. Councilman Mario Fiorucci spoke on his idea to work out an agreement with Solomon Recycling. Fiorucci said Solomon offers a 6-yard Dumpster, which would be emptied every two weeks at a cost of $60 per month, or a smaller Dumpster, which would be emptied every week, at

a cost of $80 per month. The downside to these options would be that plastic, paper, glass and other items would all be mixed together and sorted out at the recycling facility. The borough would only get an estimated credit for the recyclables at the time of pickup. No weight slips would be given. This recycling method is known as singlestream recycling. Fiorucci said Solomon stated the contract would entail a sixmonth minimum for the trial pe-

riod, after which the borough would be required to sign a threeyear contract with the company. Fiorucci is also looking for a contract to start the process of a “shoulder road paving process.” The starting point would begin at the corner of Connor and Main streets and end at the stop sign in Warrior Run. Fiorucci said there are no sidewalks on the right side of this road, and it can be very unsafe for pedestrians and bike riders. PennDOT would automatically fund the project if Warrior Run and Sugar Notch agree to the process. The fire department will hold two fundraising events -- a breakfast on Feb. 12 from 8 a.m. to noon, as well as a fish fry on March 2 and 3 from 4 to 8 p.m.

RICE TOWNSHIP

New protocols adopted New rules will apply to employees, record keeping, accounting.

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

RICE TWP. – The board of supervisors approved a resolution on Thursday that outlines the protocol for supervision of township employees, record keeping and accounting. Under Resolution 20, at least two supervisors must be present when any direction is given to township solicitors or accountants regarding their duties to the municipality. According to board Chairman Miller Stella Jr., the wording of the new resolution was vetted by local attorney Chris Gerber prior to publication

and passage. “The need for the resolution was clear,” Stella said. “We wanted the left hand to know what the right hand was doing at all times.” Stella added that the new law would bring an added layer of transparency to the governing process in the township and help shield board members and employees from litigation. Stella, along with Supervisor George Venesky and seven other township officials, are defendants in a multi-count lawsuit that newly elected Supervisor Marcia Thomas, the former township secretary, had filed last year. The lawsuit came after Stella and Venesky voted to terminate Thomas in January 2011. She had worked for the township

since 1990. The township officials had said Thomas was not retained because she kept shoddy and incomplete records pertaining to township affairs and finances, kept secret correspondence about the township’s pension fund that had suffered a $280,000 loss, harassed the auditors during the auditing process and committed a criminal act by smoking within her office, which triggered a visiting Girl Scout member to have an asthma attack, according to a May 2011 Times Leader story. In other business Thursday, the board voted unanimously to approve the new three-year police contract through 2014 that gives the five fulltime officers 4 percent raises each year, Venesky said.

Carjacking brings 3-6 years in prison for W-B man By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A city man charged with carjacking a teen’s vehicle and other crimes was sentenced Thursday to three to six years in state prison. Brian Miller, 33, with a last known address of Scott Street, was sentenced on four counts of theft and one count each of robbery, terroristic threats, unlawful restraint, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, reckless endangerment, access device fraud and criminal conspiracy by county Judge William Amesbury. Amesbury also sentenced Miller to five years probation to be served after his prison sentence, and gave Miller credit for 174 days of time already served in prison. Miller’s charges stem from a case in which police say he carjacked a teen and then led police on a high-

speed chase. Police say Miller carjacked a vehicle of a then-17-year-old boy who was pumping gasoline at a Turkey Hill on North Pennsylvania Boulevard on July 27. Miller got into the car while Mark Macosky was filling up and told him to drive. Miller said he had a gun and would kill Macosky if anyone found out Miller took the car. As Macosky was driving, Miller told him to pull over and then shouted “Get out.” Macosky pulled over in the area of 190-192 Pennsylvania Ave. and Miller said, “Give me 10 minutes and if anyone finds out, I will return and kill you.” Sugar Notch police encountered the vehicle and tried to stop it, but Miller sped away. The chase continued on Interstate 81 southbound with the car reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Around 4:15 p.m. police from Sugar Notch, Hazleton, West Hazleton and Butler Township and the state police caught Miller in Beaver Meadows, Carbon County. In the other cases, beginning on July 4, Melissa Kizer reported to police Miller, her ex-boyfriend, stole a video game system, diamond ring and gold necklace from her residence. A few days later, Kizer said Miller used her debit card without her permission, and spent $389. When police questioned Miller, he allegedly said he had become addicted to Oxycontin and was trying to support his habit. On July 18, Kizer again reported to police that Miller took a fire safe box from her residence that held a $100 savings bond. Amesbury said Miller must undergo a mentalhealth evaluation and is to have no contact with Kizer.

Ryan Casey of West Pittston will be sentenced on May 7, a judge rules. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A West Pittston man pleaded guilty Thursday to a variety of charges stemming from several incidents, including one where police say he participated in a home invasion in which a man was assaulted. RyanCasey,23,ofRiverStreet,enteredtheplea to two counts of burglary and one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia, driving with a suspended license, criminal conspiracy and a firearms chargebefore County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley.

Selenski figure appears

The co-defendant of murder suspect Hugo Selenski appeared in Luzerne County Court on Thursday to meet the judge handling his case and to speak with his attorney and prosecutors. Paul Weakley, 42, who is serving life in prison on a federal charge relating to the 2003 deaths of Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett, appeared before Judge Fred Pierantoni. Prosecutors said Weakley will continue to cooperate with investigators in cases against Selenski. Police said Kerkowski and Fassett’s bodies were unearthed on the property where Selenski lived in Kingston Township in June 2003. Selenski, 38, is awaiting trial on those charges and is scheduled to appear in court today.

House Resolution 535 is another example of the fine line between religion and politics being blurred, according to local religious leaders and professors. The two-page resolution, adopted last week by a 193-0 vote, designated 2012 as “The Year of the Bible” in Pennsylvania. Sponsored by Rep. Rick Saccone, R-Allegheny County, the “non-controversial resolution”

ends with “in recognition of both the formative influence of the Bible on our commonwealth and nation and our national need to study and apply the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.” “All over the Pennsylvania Capitol, one can easily see the tremendous influence that Christianity and the Bible have had over our founders and predecessors. These images and quotes illustrating the beliefs and morals that have shaped our great commonwealth must

never be forgotten,” Saccone said. The Rev. Daniel Gunn, leader of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Wilkes-Barre, said he disagrees with the House resolution and feels government should refrain from religious proclamations. “There’s a reason we have separation of church and state,” Gunn said. “I do not deal with legislative issues from the pulpit, and I don’t think the legislature should be dealing too much with religious issues,”

Ex-officials contest suit

Lawyers representing former Luzerne County Retirement Board members have filed objections to a suit seeking payment of legal fees for past county controller Steve Flood. Flood’s estate filed suit in December demanding payment of fees Flood incurred fighting a defamation suit involving his November 2002 comments on a radio program. That libel suit was discontinued in November, four months after Flood’s death. The Philadelphiabased Schnader, Flood Harrison, Segal & Lewis sued Flood and his partner and guardian, Heather Paulhamus, in 2010, seeking $205,696 in legal fees for representing him in the defamation suit. The county Retirement Board had initially agreed to pay for Flood’s legal defense in the libel suit but reversed the decision shortly after Flood lost his bid for re-election in 2005. Former board members Maryanne Petrilla, Thomas Cooney, Stephen A. Urban, Walter Griffith and the late Michael Morreale are listed as defendants. Their lawyers said the suit should be dismissed because it didn’t provide required written documentation and details about Flood’s request for coverage and the hiring of the Schnader firm.

Company can’t get W-B cash At issue is $3.4 million Newcrete products says it is owed for beams. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

A company that is owed $4.3 million for concrete beams it supplied to a defunct theater/garage project in Wilkes-Barre has lost its latest court challenge that sought to hold the city responsible for the debt. The state Commonwealth Court on Thursday ruled Newcrete Products of New Enterprise, Pa., cannot recoup money from the city

that is owed to it by the Wilkes-Barre Redevelopment Authority for work it performed in 2001on a proposed theater/parking garage on South Washington Street. The project, which was proposed under former Mayor Thomas McGroarty, was scuttled after the authority could not obtain money to complete it. The site was later revitalized under current Mayor Tom Leighton and now houses the city’s Intermodal Transportation Center between South Main and Washington streets. Newcrete had supplied numerous concrete beams

that were to be used to construct a parking garage, but it was never paid after the project was halted three months after construction began. The company filed suit against the Redevelopment Authority in 2006 and was awarded $4.3 million. It was never able to collect on the debt, however, because the authority did not have the ability to pay the judgment. Newcrete then filed a lawsuit against the city in June 2011 to recover the money, arguing the city was responsible to pay the debt because it had nearly absolute control over the authority and had acted as its “alter ego.”

A Luzerne County judge dismissed the complaint in January 2011, finding that the authority and city were separate legal entities, therefore the city could not be held responsible for the authority’s debt. The Commonwealth Court on Thursday upheld the ruling, finding that it made no difference how much control the city exerted over the authority. The city had no ownership interest in the authority, therefore it could not be held responsible for its debts. Newcrete attorney John Doran of Wilkes-Barre failed to respond to a request Thursday for comment.

Man charged in burglary had clever system, cops say John Chernowsky is jailed on $100,000 bail in Nanticoke, Newport Township incidents. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

NANTICOKE – Police in Nanticoke and Newport Township say John Chernowsky had a simple test. Ring a doorbell to determine if anyone was home. If someone opened the door, authorities allege, Chernowsky asked if they had lost a cat. If the doorbell went unanswered, Chernowsky walked to a rear door, allegedly using a credit card to force it open. Police say Chernowsky was targeting homes on Vista Drive in Newport Township and on East Washington Street in Nanticoke on Jan. 26. Chernowsky, 27, of East Union Street, Nanticoke, was arraigned

Wednesday night by District Judge Donald Whittaker in Nanticoke on two counts each of criminal attempt to commit burglary and criminal attempt to Chernowsky commit mischief, and one count each of burglary, criminal trespass and theft. Township police arrested Chernowsky last week on charges he burglarized a house on Vista Drive. Chernowsky remains jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail. According to the criminal complaints: Township police responded to a burglary at a house on Vista Drive on Jan. 26, when a woman claimed someone forced their way inside a rear door and stole items. While investigating the burglary, police learned a man, identified by police

as Chernowsky, tried to force open a rear door to another house on Vista Drive after ringing a doorbell. A woman inside the second house did not answer and encountered Chernowsky at her rear door, the complaints say. Nanticoke police said that less than two hours after the incidents in Newport Township, Chernowsky rang a doorbell at a house on East Washington Street. Chernowsky asked the man who answered if he’d lost a cat. Chernowsky left the house and walked to another residence on East Washington Street, where he ran away after a burglar alarm was activated, the complaints say. Nanticoke police allege Chernowsky on Aug. 16 burglarized a house on East Washington Street he believed was unoccupied. A homeowner confronted Chernowsky in a bedroom going through a jewelry box. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on Feb. 8 before Whittaker.

The county manager, budget/finance director, council chairperson and a council member also serve on the board. Councilman Eugene Kelleher was selected as the council representative, and council Chairman Jim Bobeck said he will designate a council member to serve in his place. Griffith served on the retirement board under the previous government structure along with the three commissioners and the treasurer. More than 3,000 current and past employees are eligible to vote for the retirement system representative, Hummer said. Voting will occur from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 15. County electronic voting machines will be set up in the pension coordinator’s office at the county’s Penn Place building in downtown Wilkes-Barre and probably also in the county courthouse, Hummer said. Absentee ballots will be available and must be counted at the conclusion of the election, according to the council-approved procedure. Hummer said the restructured board will meet for the first time at the end of the month to approve retirements and receive a status report on the pension fund. Morgan Stanley Smith Barney was hired in November to oversee the fund for another three years. The fund was valued at $191 million at that time.

Israel has been lobbying hard for even tougher economic sanctions on Iran. Yaalon said only the threat of a punishing military strike would compel the Iranian regime to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Mark Berndt, 61, is accused of taking bondage photos of young students.

FORT HOOD, TEXAS

The Associated Press

Rampage trial delayed

LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles teacher suspected of taking bizarre bondage-style photographs of children in his class was investigated in 1994 for allegedly trying to fondle a 10-year-old girl, authorities said Thursday. The incident allegedly occurred in September 1993 but wasn’t reported by the girl’s mother to officials at Miramonte Elementary School until the following January, said sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Scott. The girl claimed Berndt that Mark Berndt, 61, reached toward her genitals during class but she pushed his hand away, Scott said. The school notified the Sheriff’s Department, which investigated Berndt, who denied the accusation, and sent the case to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, which declined to file charges. A phone message left for a district attorney spokeswoman was not immediately returned. Berndt remained jailed on $23 million bail after his first court appearance Wednesday on felony charges that he committed lewd acts on 23 boys and girls, ages 6 to 10, between 2005 and 2010. He could face multiple life sentences if convicted. Angry parents confronted school officials Wednesday, demanding to know why they weren’t told for a year that Berndt, who taught at Miramonte for more than 30 years, was suspected of photographing children in class for sexual thrills. Berndt was removed from classwork in January 2011 and fired within the month, but only parents of children identified as victims were told by authorities at that time of the investigation.

The Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people during the Fort Hood shooting rampage will go on trial in June, a military judge ruled Thursday after agreeing to a three-month delay. Attorneys for Maj. Nidal Hasan argued during a hearing at the Army post in Texas that they still lacked key evidence needed to prepare for the March trial. Prosecutors insisted defense lawyers didn’t need more time, saying one defense expert was hired nearly two years ago and that he alone has already racked up about $250,000 in fees billed to the government. The defense had asked for a July trial, but the judge settled for June 12. The trial is expected to last about two months. Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the November 2009 attack at the sprawling Army post, which is about 130 miles southwest of Dallas. If convicted, he faces the death penalty. Hasan, who was arraigned in July, has not yet entered a plea.

Wants stunning probed A California congresswoman wants an independent investigator to determine whether a federal park ranger used excessive force when she fired a stun gun on a man walking his dogs. Gary Hesterberg, 50, was stunned with a Taser electric-shock device when he was walking two small dogs off-leash in violation of rules at the Golden Gate National Recreational Area, park officials have said. In a letter Wednesday to the park Superintendent Frank Dean, Rep. Jackie Speier said the ranger’s use of the stun gun appears to be unwarranted. BELGRADE, SERBIA

11,000 trapped by snow At least 11,000 villagers have been trapped by heavy snow and blizzards in Serbia’s mountains, authorities said Thursday, as the death toll from Eastern Europe’s weeklong deep freeze rose to 123, many of them homeless people. The harshest winter in decades has seen temperatures in some regions dropping to minus 22 F and below, and has caused power outages, traffic chaos and the widespread closure of schools, nurseries and airports. The stranded in Serbia are stuck in some 6,500 homes in remote areas that cannot be reached due to icy, snowclogged roads with banks reaching up to 16 feet. Emergency crews were pressing hard to try to clear the snow to deliver badly needed supplies, and helicopters were dispatched to some particularly remote areas in Serbia and neighboring Bosnia.

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — On the defensive, the White House scrambled Thursday to explain its requirement that church-affiliated employers cover birth control after House Speaker John Boehner called it unconstitutional and demanded immediate reconsideration. Under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law, most employers and insurance plans will have to cover birth control free of charge as a preventive service for women. The administration had already ruled that churches and houses of worship do not have to follow that requirement, but officials recently announced that many religious-affiliated institutions such as hospitals, colleges and charities must comply. The wave of protest that followed has clearly taken administration officials by

surprise. Catholic and Protestant evangelical leaders criticized the decision as infringing on freedom of religion. Some religious liberals called it politically risky for Obama in a close election year. “I think this mandate violates our Constitution,” Boehner, R-Ohio, said Thursday. “I think it violates the rights of these religious organizations. And I would hope that the administration would back up and take another look at this.” Boehner is Catholic. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the decision will stand. That’s unlikely to silence critics. Also joining in disapproval was a group that includes Democratic lawmakers who helped engineer final passage of the health care law. The group “Democrats for Life of America” represents anti-abortion lawmakers who provided the margin of victory for passage of the health care overhaul. “Forcing religious institutions to provide insurance coverage for services that are directly in opposition to their moral beliefs is very clearly wrong,” said Kristen Day, the group’s executive director.

“I think this mandate violates our Constitution. I think it violates the rights of these religious organizations. And I would hope that the administration would back up and take another look at this.” John Boehner Speaker of the House

At the White House, Carney defended the decision, saying it was the best policy to promote the health of women, and the president has no intention of trespassing on religious liberty. “There was extensive and careful consideration as this policy was developed and a decision was made. And the issue here is we want to be sure women, all women, have access to good health care,” Carney said.

Angered by deaths at soccer riots, Egyptians besiege key government building McClatchy Newspapers

CAIRO — Thousands of angry sports fans besieged the Egyptian Interior Ministry on Thursday to avenge 74 deaths in riots over a soccer match the previous night, as political forces seized on the tragedy to renew demands for the ouster of the military-appointed interim government. As Egypt declared three days of mourning for the victims of the riots, many of the country’s senior political figures issued a joint statement saying that the mayhem that erupted Wednesday night after the popular al-Ahly team’s loss to a rival squad was the re-

sult of official negligence. Tearful soccer fans and their sympathizers tore down part of a security barrier outside the Interior Ministry and lobbed rocks at riot police in clashes that continued well into the night. Authorities responded with volleys of tear gas in scenes reminiscent of heavy fighting in November. By late evening, the Health Ministry said, more than 100 people were wounded. “We either die like them or we avenge them!” the protesters chanted as they AP PHOTO tore through barbed wire and concrete blocks sealing off the ministry in down- Egyptians on Thursday protest government’s failure to prevent a soccer riot town Cairo. that left more than 70 people dead.

Robert was a veteran of the World War II and served in the United States Navy. As the military reporter and editor of the newspaper on the U.S.S Saidor AKV-17, Robert was able to travel the world defending his country and at the same time seeing new places, which was one of his greatest hobbies.

Roseanne Barr is seeking the Green Party’s presidential nod.

Roseanne running for president By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Roseanne Barr said Thursday she’s running for the Green Party’s presidential nomination — and it’s no joke. The actress-comedian said in a statement that she’s a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said the two major parties aren’t serving the American people. “The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants -- bought and paid for by the 1 percent -- who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said. Occupy Wall Street protesters popularized the “We are the 99 percent” slogan in their fight against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed. Barr has submitted paperwork to the Green Party for her candidacy. The party’s presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July. Barr said she has been fighting for working-class families and women for decades. “I will barnstorm American living rooms,” she said in a candidate questionnaire submitted to the Green Party. “Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.” Barr’s hit TV sitcom “Roseanne” aired from 1988 to 1997 and earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

nization is concerned. “As a health care provider to 33,000 women in our 19-county region, Planned Parenthood is a trusted leader in helping women identify breast cancer early. Women are deeply alarmed that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation appears to have succumbed to political pressure from a vocal minority,” said Kim Custer, president and chief executive officer. Custer said she is concerned about the “troubling precedent of putting politics before women’s health. In this community; our breast health programs provided annual and breast exams to more than 24,000 women last year.” Custer said quality, accessibility and affordability make Planned Parenthood a leader in identifying breast cancer early when there is the best chance of successful treatment. Planned Parenthood has been heartened by an outpouring of support in response to the cutoff. In addition to $400,000 in smaller donations from 6,000 people, it is receiving $250,000 from a family

Back Mt. home burns The Summit Street blaze began on a back porch, a family member says. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

KINGSTON TWP. – Fire heavily damaged a house on Summit Street on Thursday night and chased a father and his twin sons from the burning building. Dr. Frank Yanik was feeding the boys in a front room of the house when he heard what sounded like a bell ringing in the rear, said his father, Glenn Yanik of Dallas. His son went to the back door, found the porch on fire and gath-

ered up the boys, taking them outside to safety. “Then it went through the house,” said Yanik of the fire as he stood under an evergreen tree watching firefighters wet down the smoldering structure. His son’s wife, Jess, was not home at the time, he added. Firefighters from Back Mountain communities responded to the alarm sounded shortly after 7 p.m. after several neighbors called Luzerne County 911. Dave Stokes was one of them. He said he was walking his dog and smelled what he thought was plastic burning. As he got closer to the Yanik house he could see flames and smoke. “I thought maybe his grill was

on fire,” said Stokes. He saw Yanik and his children coming out of the home of Ted Rebennack. Rebennack wet down the side of his house facing Yanik’s with a garden hose, but the intensity of the heat melted the siding. He said he offered to do the dishes for his wife who has a bad back and when she went to lie down she saw the house next door blazing. “The flames were just licking out of the back of the house,” said Rebennack. Firefighters focused their efforts on the rear of the house as the wind fed several flare-ups. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

In Washington, 26 U.S. senators — all Democrats except for independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont — signed a letter calling on Komen to reconsider its decision. “It would be tragic if any woman — let alone thousands of women — lost access to these potentially lifesaving screenings because of a politically motivated attack,” the senators wrote.

that the decision was driven by pressure from anti-abortion groups. “We don’t base our decisions on whether one side or the other will be pleased,” said Komen’s founder and CEO, Nancy Brinker. Komen has said the decision stemmed from newly adopted criteria barring grants to organizations under investigation — affecting Planned Parenthood because of an inquiry by a Republican congressman acting with encouragement from anti-abortion activists. Brinker said Thursday there were additional factors, notably changes in the types of breasthealth service providers it want-

However, she said grants would continue this year to three of the 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates — in Denver, California’s Orange County, and Waco, Texas — because they served clientele with few other breastscreening options. But, a source with direct knowledge of decision-making at Komen’s headquarters in Dallas said the grant-making criteria were adopted with the deliberate intention of targeting Planned Parenthood. According to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, a driving force behind the move was Karen Handel, who was hired by Komen last year as vice president for public policy

LAKE TWP. – State police at Wyoming charged a township man they allege burglarized neighbors’ houses on Lehman Outlet Road, including the same residence twice in less than a week. Jody Higgins, of Lehman Outlet Road, was arraigned Thursday by District Judge James Tupper in Kingston Township on four counts each of burglary, criminal trespass, theft and receiving stolen property. After he was arraigned, Higgins waived his right to a preliminary hearing, sending the charges to Luzerne County Court. Higgins has been jailed at the county prison since his arrest on Dec. 9 on Higgins charges he stole items from a barn on Lehman Outlet Road. Tupper set bail on the latest charges at $20,000. According to the criminal complaints: State police allege Higgins burglarized a house, stealing three guns and tools from Oct. 21 to Oct. 23, hiding the guns in woods near the residence. Higgins allegedly returned to the same house on Oct. 24, taking tools and copper wire. The next day on Oct. 25, state police say, Higgins went to another house on Lehman Outlet Road taking a chainsaw, tools, vehicle keys and a bag. The homeowner later found some of the stolen items along a dirt road, the complaints say. State police said Higgins burglarized a third house on Lehman Outlet Road sometime between Oct. 20 and Oct. 25, stealing a chainsaw, cordless drills and a grinder. Higgins was arrested on Dec. 9 in connection with a burglary at a barn on Lehman Outlet Road on Nov. 11. While taking Higgins to a court proceeding on Dec. 15, state police allege he admitted to burglarizing the houses by opening unlocked doors, according to the criminal complaints. Higgins is scheduled to be formally arraigned in county court on April 5 on the latest charges.

OUR OPINION: 40TH SEASON

Philharmonic still hitting right note

Y

OU DON’T NEED a tuxedo or a gown. You don’t need to boast an encyclopedic knowledge of long-dead composers Beethoven and Brahms, or even be a devotee of classical music. The only things required for you to truly appreciate an evening with the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic are these: two ears and a ticket. And at prices starting at $28 for next Friday’s pops performance in Wilkes-Barre called “Broadway Love Songs,” why not try it? Now marking its 40th season, the region’s philharmonic still soars and soothes. At various times and tempos, this often-underappreciated treasure also still engages, experiments, educates and inspires. And, yes, it still depends on ample support from residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Classical music aficionados from Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, cities which decades ago each had a separate orchestra, hatched a plan around 1969 to spawn some harmony: start one, first-rate philharmonic. A committee formed. In March 1972, its members hired Polishborn maestro Thomas Michalak, formerly of the Pittsburgh Symphony. Months later, however, the Agnes flood almost wiped away Wilkes-Barre and, with it, any hopes for a startup philharmonic.

P

RESIDENT Obama’s public acknowledgment of the CIA’s secret drone campaign in Pakistan puts new pressure on the administration to defend the policy openly. That’s a welcome development. The president should now be equally forthcoming about the rationale for the targeted killings of American citizens. In an interview conducted by Google and YouTube on Monday, Obama defended the use of drones as “judicious” and added that “obviously a lot of these strikes have been in the FATA,” Pakistan’s federally administered tribal areas. Both the fact of the strikes and their general location have been open secrets for some time. Now that Obama has been candid about the drone strateEDITORIAL BOARD

gy, he owes the nation a further explanation about one of its most worrisome manifestations: the killing of American citizens without due process. Last year in Yemen a drone killed Anwar Awlaki, a native of New Mexico and a key figure in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. So far the administration has not laid out a convincing legal rationale for the assassination. Reportedly Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. will publicly address the legality of targeting Americans in the next several weeks. He needs to be specific about that question and about the criteria used in the Awlaki case. If Obama is willing to be more candid, so must the rest of his administration. Los Angeles Times

We should dispel ignorance during Black History Month WELCOME TO Black History Month. The idea originated with historian Carter G. Woodson, best remembered for having published “The Mis-Education of the Negro” in 1933. In it, Woodson argued, “The so-called modern education does others so much more good than it does the Negro, because it has been worked out in conformity with the needs of those who have oppressed weaker people.” Woodson initiated a “Negro History Week” each February, which in 1976 officially became Black History Month. Woodson chose this month because it includes the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. By celebrating black history, Woodson believed we would move closer to our nation’s motto of “E Pluribus Unum.” We’re getting there, but we’re not there yet. A few months ago I was on a cross-country train ride. I was seated in the observation car alongside several college freshmen. It was a multiracial group, and all the young people were excited by school and the latest fads, music and television shows. One among the gaggle was a young black woman.

These young people were united in many ways, but they had not inherited a common history. Woodson would not have been happy.

Cameras can discourage runners of red lights

E

ach year, hundreds of people are needlessly killed and thousands more injured by red light runners. Too often, these motorists’ reckless disregard for a simple law goes unpunished, allowing the offenders to break more laws and put more lives at risk. We know firsthand the pain of losing a loved one to such a preventable act. On Jan. 26, we remembered the 10-year anniversary of our daughter Sarah’s death at the hands of a red light runner. She was only 31 when she died – a talented high school science teacher with two beautiful children and a bright future ahead of her. That all ended in a split second.

Crashes such as this happen every day, but they don’t need to.

That number is completely preventable. Paul and Sue Oberhauser Co-Chairs, Traffic Safety Coalition Somerset, Ohio

About 250 rescued, 110 missing after ferry sinks Official says most on board the vessel off coast of Papua New Guinea were students. The Associated Press

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea — Rescuers battling big waves and strong winds have pulled nearly 250 people from the sea off Papua New Guinea’s east coast after a ferry sank. More than 110 people remained missing early today, Papua New Guinea time. Crews in ships, planes and helicopters continued to scour the warm seas. Papua New Guinea’s National Maritime Safety Authority rescue coordinator Capt. Nurur Rahman said he had not given up hope of finding more survivors, though the swell and

winds were rising and some victims may have been trapped inside the sunken ferry. “I do not presume them to be dead yet,” he told Australian Broadcasting Corp. Owners of MV Rabaul Queen, Papua New Guinea-based Rabaul Shipping Company, said today there had been 350 passengers and 12 crew aboard the 22-yearold Japanese-built ferry when it went down Thursday morning while traveling from Kimbe on the island of New Britain to the coastal city of Lae on the main island. A police official said most of those aboard were students. “We are stunned and utterly devastated by what has happened,” managing director Peter Sharp said in a statement. The company said the cause of

the disaster remained unclear, but National Weather Service chief Sam Maiha told Papua New Guinea’s Post-Courier newspaper that shipping agencies had been warned to keep ships moored this week because of strong winds. An official at the scene told the newspaper that the ferry capsized in rough seas and sank four hours later. By nightfall Thursday, 246 survivors had been rescued by merchant ships battling 16-foot swells and 45 mph winds at the disaster scene 50 miles east of Lae and 10 miles from shore, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. AMSA spokeswoman Carly Lusk on Friday could not explain why the new figure was eight greater than the tally of 238 survi-

But he said it’s been a struggle to convince customers conditions are good. “One of the biggest frustrations is just skier confidence; to get the word out,” he said. “It’s a frustrating winter, but it’s part of the game.” Daubert said attendance has been somewhat down this year, though it’s difficult to judge because last winter, with its ample snowfall, was a banner year for local ski resorts.

As they’ve gotten more experienced, they’ve gotten better. In 2009, SEAL sharpshooters killed three Somali pirates holding the American captain of the Maersk Alabama hostage in a lifeboat. And late last month, U.S. Navy SEALs parachuted into Somalia under cover of night, then moved on foot to where captors were holding an

Lewandowski said he’s hopeful things will pick up, but so far he hasn’t earned enough to cover his insurance costs. “Years ago, we had a good storm in March, and even two years ago (New) Jersey and (Washington) D.C. got hit pretty hard, so I’m hopeful,” he said. “I don’t wish ill on anybody but if it snows that’s great for me. There’s still hope left for this year.” But for others, the unseasonably warm weather has been a boon. Energy consumers, for one, have benefited from lower heating costs. Kurt Blumenau, spokesman for PPL Electric Utilities, said electricity consumption in January was 3.3 percent lower than the 10-year average for the month, and 6.6 percent below last January. Peak demand in January was also about 2 percent below the 10-year average and 8 percent below last year. About 30 percent of PPL cus-

Dane Poul Hagen Thisted, 60, from the Danish Refugee Council’s de-mining unit, was taken hostage in Somalia and later freed by U.S. Navy SEALs. The SEALs parachuted in and killed nine captors, rescued Hagen and a U.S. woman hostage and flew them out.

The kidnappings of foreigners living or traveling overseas continues unabated, as it has for decades. While the probability of a person being kidnapping is low, abductions do occur regularly, especially in high-risk nations like Somalia, Pakistan, Mexico and Colombia. Even those who are supremely aware of the risks can disappear. In December 2006, Felix Batista, an American antikidnapping expert and negotiator for hostage releases, was kidnapped in Saltillo, Mexico, and hasn’t been heard from since. Just last Tuesday, armed tribesmen in Yemen kidnapped six United Nations workers: an Iraqi, a Palestinian, a Colombian, a German and two Yemenis. On Jan. 20, kidnappers grabbed an American and held him for a week before releasing him, perhaps after a ransom was paid. U.S. troops have been tasked with rescues mostly in areas where American

tomers heat their homes with electricity, Blumenau said, and since commercial customers’ usage varies less by season, most of that drop can be attributed to residential users. “When we have warmer weather in the winter obviously they’ll be using less power to heat there homes, which of course is good for the homeowner,” Blumenau said. Jennifer Warback, Emergency Energy Services coordinator for the Commission on Economic Opportunity, said applications for emergency heating assistance have been down 25 to 30 percent this winter. Requests for emergency heating-system repair assistance are also down. Though the weather is one of several factors affecting participation in the program, Warback said it’s probably the main contributor. “Obviously, if we start seeing more winter-like temperatures we’re going to see more need for heating oil, and that could bring an influx of people coming in to apply for the grants,” she said.

“They have conducted so many operations in these areas, from hostage rescues to strike operations to capture-kill missions. What it does is significantly improves the competence of special operations,” Jones told The Associated Press. He said commando missions are “now routine.” Though Navy SEAL Team 6 rescued the American and the Dane, one American kidnapped in January in Somalia remains behind. His captors told AP they moved him after the SEAL raid, out of fear the U.S. military could try another rescue attempt. U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns said this week the U.S. is “very concerned” about the remaining hostage and Washington is following the case closely and taking it very seriously. “It’s an essential obligation for any government to do everything we can to protect our citizens and that’s exactly what President Obama did when he ordered the successful hostage rescue” in Somalia, Burns said.

Frank Sorick, who lost his bid for the Republican nomination for mayor last year, said the Ethics Commission “must be joking” to believe that “all intern hirings for the city of Wilkes-Barre … without input or direction from the mayor.” “The mayor signed not one but 14 executive orders to hire his own children,” Sorick said. “Those are facts, so I don’t see how anyone can say he had no involvement when he signed the orders.” The commission cited a previous case – Kraines v SEC – to support its decision.

His Saudi Arabiabased employer offered $1 million. Hallums noted a successful rescue requires the work of many more people than the commandoes who carry out the raid. The FBI, CIA and National Security Agency all work to gather information, data that is then turned over to military intelligence, where an operations officer devises a rescue plan. Technology has improved the chances of success. Aerial drones can monitor guard activity and provide a layout of the location. Watching a pattern of life allows the military to make educated guesses about the chances for success. But even with that advantage, Evans said no mission is guaranteed success. The Somali captors could have shot and killed the American and Danish hostages during last week’s raid if they had seen the SEALs coming, she said. That’s why most people try to reach a negotiated rescue — a ransom payment — instead.

O’Brien praises assistants for recruiting work New head coach says aide Larry Johnson was invaluable during transition period. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

Discussing his inaugural recruiting class at Penn State, the first name Bill O’Brien mentioned was Larry Johnson. The Nittany Lions and their new head coach were forced to scramble to hold together what

had once been shaping up to be one of the nation’s top classes. “I think it went really well as far as the Johnson transition is concerned,” O’Brien said. “I’ve got to give a lot of credit to the assistant coaches, especially Larry Johnson, who I asked to oversee the (recruiting) transition period here. As evidenced by (sign-

ing day), he did a great job of keeping it rolling.” The first bit of salesmanship for O’Brien was with Johnson, convincing the program’s longtime defensive line coach and top recruiter to remain at Penn State. Johnson was the first member of O’Brien’s new staff and he was tasked with leading a tumultuous final month of recruiting in the midst of the coaching change. “Well, it has been an emotional ride, there’s no question about

that,” Johnson said. “I think a lot of credit goes to the former staff. They did a great job for two months with not having a head coach, having Tom Bradley as interim head coach. They kept recruiting on the road, which set the foundation for where we are today. “Then the new staff came in and really hit the ground running. They were really trying to get to know the kids, get to know the families, and coach O’Brien came into town and just contin-

ued to sell what Penn State is all about. I think that’s the biggest thing that’s happened.” It was Johnson and fellow holdover Ron Vanderlinden who had to help catch the incoming coaches up to speed on the recruits who had already given verbal commitments to the Lions, as well as help develop a plan going forward. The effort was appreciated, even for a veteran college coach like Ted Roof, the team’s new defensive coordinator.

Redeemer turns tables on Tigers By MATTHEW SHUTT For The Times Leader

If the lesson taken from TUNKHANNOCK that game was to start the game with intensity at both ends of the court, Holy Redeemer coach Chris Parker made sure the message stuck. The Royals were aggressive from the opening tip, challenged Tunkhannock’s shots and rarely settled for tough shots in a 59-47 win at Tunkhannock. “With what happened last time we played, this was a great chance for us to redeem ourselves and the girls were really up for this game,” Parker said. “I

Senior forward has a double-double as Pittston Area breaks losing streak.

From staff and wire reports

It took just four weeks for former Dallas High School football star Greg Manusky to land another position as an NFL defensive coordinator. Manusky was hired Thursday to be the defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts, a job he held for one year with the San Diego Chargers before being fired on Manusky Jan. 5. The Colts also added three other assistants. The latest moves come two days after the Colts hired offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who held the same position with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and fired two more coaches from former head coach Jim Caldwell’s staff. “I think at the same time it was important to get the coordinators settled,” new head coach Chuck Pagano said. “It’s all going to come together, and we’re going to take our time. It’s not something we’re going to rush.” Manusky was hired away from

The Patriots, held to just 37 points in Tuesday’s loss to Crestwood, rekindled their perimeter game with a 73-56 victory over Dallas. “That was a tough loss to Crestwood,” PITTSTON Pittston Area AREA coach Al Kiesinger said. “And we were coming off four tough DALLAS losses in a row – two of them really close. “Today, we held together; we shared the ball.” The Patriots’ Steve Stravinski, a 6-foot-4 senior forward, pulled down 22 rebounds and scored 15 points for a double-double. “Stravinski was a monster on the boards,” said Kiesinger. Pittston Area held a six-point lead at halftime and opened the half on an 11-2 run. The Patriots shot 15-for-20 (75 percent) in the second half. They hit 8-of-16 three-pointers (50 percent) for the game. “I think we were focused,” Kiesinger said. “On the offensive end, we made some shots that we didn’t make the other night, shots that we didn’t take the other night.” Dallas struggled off the glass and faced difficulty battling Stravinski for offensive and defensive rebounds. In the first half, Pittston Area often found success with second-chance points. “We got outhustled,” Dallas coach Doug Miller said. “That’s one of the big things we talked about was defensively we have to outhustle them every possession.

Super Bowl team owners differ in styles

By JIM LITKE AP Sports Writer

The NFL season began on time largely because of Robert Kraft and John Mara. So there’s no more fitting way to end it than the two of them facing off for the game’s biggest prize. The owners of the New England Patriots and New York Giants were instrumental in ending a long labor war that threatened to cancel what turned out to be, by nearly every measure, the NFL’s most successful season. Both men have also held the Super Bowl trophy aloft; Kraft three times and Mara once, in 2007, at the expense of his fellow owner. But the similarities between the two pretty

much begin and end there. When Kraft begins a story, it’s liable to end up anywhere. When Mara does, he gets straight to the point. Almost two decades after buying the Patriots and transforming them into one of the most successful franchises in any sport, many of the things about the life of an owner — especially the celebrity — still seem fresh to the 70-year-old Kraft. So when a reporter from London asks about the growing popularity of his team overseas, Kraft notes that America’s original “patriots” were transplanted Englishmen, offers a few suggestions how to widen the fan base over there and then ends with this little gem: “And one of my

favorite friends, Sir Elton John, is very excited about us being back in the Super Bowl.” For Mara, 57, a man of many fewer words, the job seems second nature. Small wonder. He was groomed for the role since birth and inherited it when his father, Wellington, died in 2005. The family’s roots stretch back to the founding of the franchise in 1925, when his grandfather, Tim, a New York bookmaker, plunked down somewhere between $500 and $2,500 and gambled on the viability of the then-5-year-old NFL. “I’m not necessarily happy to be playSee OWNERS, Page 4B

Dallas’ Shane Dunn, the leading receiver in the Wyoming Valley Conference this past season, has decided to continue his football and academic careers at Division II East Stroudsburg. It was an incredible bounceback year for Dunn, who missed significant time as a junior due to a foot injury.

thought we played well. It’s a big win in the division for us and hopefully we can continue to play hard and build off of this.” After a building a two-point lead at the end of the first quarter, Holy Redeemer went on a 9-2 run before Tunkhannock crept back into the game from the freethrow line to pull within four. The Royals responded with two quick baskets to take a 25-18 lead at the half. The majority of the Tigers’ points came from the line after a change in strategy from the previous meeting kept any of Tunkhannock’s shooters from finding any good openings. “I think the biggest change, defensively, this time was going with a man-to-man defense,” Parker said. “The last time we met, we played a lot of zone and I think some of their shooters had too much room to roam around.” The Tigers spent the third quarter chipping away at Redeemer’s lead with a combo of free throws and layups inside from center Lisa Kintner. The senior scored seven of her team high 22 points in the third quarter, in which Tunkhannock again

While the Tigers continued to score with the clock stopped, Parker made it clear to his charges not to play into the pace and to keep attacking. “We had to stay in our game offensively and not lose track of what we wanted to do,” Parker said, “which was to keep attacking.” The Royals opened up the fourth quarter with a 9-0 run and closed out the final minutes with a 12-3 spurt, both of which led by the rebounding, passing and scoring of forward Alexis Lewis on a night when some of her teammates found trouble scoring. Lewis tallied 13 of her gamehigh 25 points in the fourth quarter on a variety of jump shots, drives into the lane and free throws that Tunkhannock could not keep up with, essentially icing the game for Redeemer.

field goals for 16 points. Dallas found success in the transition game, cutting an early 11-point deficit to three on an 11-3 run in the second quarter. Kiesinger credited a defensive adjustment at halftime that really caused problems for the Mountaineers. “We decided to take the press off,” Kiesinger said. “We played a little zone. The big difference was that we stopped pressing. I thought they played well in transition in the first half, and I thought we took that away from them in the second half.”

ing Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, I’ll tell you that,” Mara said. “But yeah, I’m very happy for Bob. He put his heart and soul into those negotiations during a very difficult time. The success they’ve had is well-deserved.” A “difficult time” doesn’t tell the half of it. Agreement on a new 10-year labor deal came barely a week after Kraft buried his wife of 48 years, Myra, after a battle with cancer. For much of that time, Kraft shuttled back and forth between her hospital bed and the bargaining table, largely because, like Mara, he was one of the few owners the players felt they could trust. “They saved me,” Kraft said, gesturing back over his shoulder at the Patriots players on every side of him. “I never understood what the word heartbroken meant. It’s hard for anyone to relate to it. My wife was 19 and I was 20 when she proposed to me. We had five kids right away. Then they left and we became best pals for 25 years. She was 98 pounds, read four books a week and was healthy. “I thought she would outlive me for 30 years. This horrible cancer came and it’s wrecked my life. Having this team,” he said finally, “has been a savior for me.” The close relationship between the short, silver-haired, always-nattily attired owner and his XXL-sized players makes for some interesting scenes. After games, Kraft takes a tour of the locker room, a broad smile creasing his features and hand extended in congratulations. But he rarely gets from one end to the other without disappearing in one massive bear hug or another from a few of the veterans.

the San Francisco 49ers after the 2010 season to become the Chargers’ defensive coordinator. He was the Chargers’ third defensive coordinator in five years. In a strange twist, the Chargers replaced him with their linebackers coach John Pagano, who is Chuck Pagano’s brother. “He’ll bring a great passion and energy to our organization and the defensive side of the ball,” Chuck Pagano said of Manusky, who was the 49ers’ defen-

dent, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday.” Bundchen was said to have confirmed it all with an email to the paper saying: “I am surprised that you received this email; it was a private note only sent to close friends and family.” Not exactly bulletin-board material, but darned close for a week that has been exceedingly dull by Super Bowl standards: no name-calling, fights or even a whiff of controversy. A copy of the Post made the rounds at the Giants’ media availability Thursday morning. Brady was asked about it, too, but no fireworks there: “I don’t know anything about that, so I don’t know what it is.” Brady and Bundchen have taken great pains to try to be a

ning backs coach and recruiting coordinator. Mike McQueary had previously been Penn State’s recruiting coordinator, with Bill Kavanaugh taking over much of those duties this past year. London, too, credited Johnson with helping the program through the transition. “He has been vital,” London said. “From day one when I got here, he was kind of the acting recruiting coordinator until I could get my feet on the ground and figure out what’s going on.

“They’re pretty sweaty,” Kraft laughed, “and if you’ve seen pictures, my feet usually aren’t touching the ground.” “That’s for sure,” chuckled Vince Wilfork, a massive nose tackle who’s one of the longestserving Patriots. “He still has his kids, but we’re probably his second family. We see a lot more of him since Mrs. Kraft passed on, and you can see how hard he’s hurting. So we have some fun, do things to try and take his mind off of that. “And Sunday,” he added, “we’ve got the chance to do a little more.” Mara was around football teams from the time he was just a lad. The family’s internship policy practically required it: Begin as a ballboy, get out to every corner of the organization and learn every phase of the operation from ticket sales to salarycap. Then, and only after reaching the top, does the reigning Mara have the luxury of getting back down to the field. “I still remember Wellington Mara coming out to watch us work when I first got here,” recalled offensive line coach Pat Flaherty, who arrived in 2004, a year before the elder Mara died at age 89. “He got a kick out of it because he knew his stuff. But it also sent a message to our guys. It let them know their work was important. “When John Mara took over, he continued ... that kind of loyalty. It’s almost like a blood transfusion,” Flaherty added. “It let our people know that even with the change at the top, nothing really changed — not the expectations, not the attention to detail, not what it means to play for the Giants.” Mara is tall and angular, still looking very much like the lawyer he was for a few years before rejoining the Giants in 1991. “I tried law for a while,” he

said, “but even while I was practicing, I knew I’d be back here. It was hard to imagine I’d wind up doing anything else.” His look is softened this week by polo shirts and team sweaters. But like his father, John Mara is reserved and his even temperament, inherited or not, serves him well as the CEO of a business where the emotional swings of a season like this one can take a severe toll. “In this business, it’s week by week. You’re on top of the world one week and you lose a couple games and you’re at the bottom. But you can’t let that affect your decision-making. You have to let the season play itself out because a lot of crazy things can happen,” he said. More than once during his tenure, the back page of the New York tabloids called for coach Tom Coughlin’s scalp, and each time Mara stood firm. He has resisted the urge to say “I told you so,” recalling how a similarly rocky season was rewarded with that improbable Super Bowl win in 2008. “As long as you believe in the coaching staff, which we do, you have to have the faith to let them do their jobs. Fortunately,” he said, “it’s worked out for us.” The Patriots only rough patch this season came after consecutive losses to the Steelers and Giants — only the second time New England lost two straight in the last nine years. Like Mara, Kraft views his role as providing stability at the top and over the long term. He prides himself on being able to identify talent at every level of the organization, then building the kind of relationships that enables those who work for him to take risks. “You get good people with you, you set the tone, and you encourage them to be bold,” he said.

sive coordinator from 20072010. Manusky was a star linebacker at Dallas in the mid-1980s and at Colgate where his was an AllAmerican. He went undrafted, but carved out a 13-year NFL career with Washington, Minnesota and Kansas City as a special teams standout and linebacker. Manusky began his NFL coaching career in 2001 as linebackers coach for the Redskins and held the same position with the Chargers from 2002-2006. He interviewed for the vacant head coach position with the Carolina Panthers prior to this season.

“I met with Greg (Wednesday) and (Thursday) with Coach (Pagano),” Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson said on the team’s official website. “I really feel good about him being a part of this. A great fit. He’s versatile within the scheme, 3-4, 4-3. It’s part of the philosophy of not trying to put a square peg into a round hole. He lines right up with that. “He’s a football guy, passionate, fire in his eyes. You know when you sit with him for two seconds he’s an intense football coach. He’s ready to come in here and do some great things with us.”

normal couple — well, as normal as one of America’s most watched twosomes can be. He’s a three-time Super Bowl champ with two MVP awards and a $72 million contract. He’s GQ worthy with rugged good looks and a flair for fashion, and his hair is a source of endless fascination. She’s a long-locked Brazilian beauty who made her name with Victoria’s Secret lingerie and now moves everything from shampoo to couture. She’s the biggest name in modeling, racking up $45 million in 2011, according to the latest annual list by Forbes.com. Brady was discovered in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft, Bundchen at age 14 in a Brazilian fashion mall. They’re the kind of high-wattage stars who keep the paparazzi in business. Yet they don’t have a reality TV show and they don’t do the party circuit, and she isn’t likely to show up at Patriots games in a form-fitting pink Brady jersey. They’re almost — dare we

say it? — boring. He gave tiny glimpses of his family life in response to questions during Super Bowl week interviews. He’ll talk about his parents, three older sisters, and his two boys, one with an ex-girlfriend, one with Bundchen. He’ll mention a child’s chair with his youngest son’s name on it on the floor of his locker in Foxborough, Mass., and remarked about his boys’ favorite TV shows and athletic abilities. But his wife? He seldom, if ever, mentioned her. And never by name. Asked at Tuesday’s media day if his wife had given him any advice, he said: “Throw the ball quickly. She doesn’t like it when I get hit very often. My guys up front do a great job of protecting me.” His wife, too. “I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time,” her email said, according to the Post. Stay tuned.

Every recruit I have talked to has mentioned his name as a reason why they have held their commitment or came on their visit. “He is well respected in the area and he has been vital to this class, he and coach Vanderlinden.” While the pitch may be the same for the new coaching staff, some of the methods will certainly change. Though O’Brien said the emphasis in Penn State’s recruiting will continue to be in Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic region, he said the program will actively recruit up and down the East Coast as well, specifically mentioning Georgia and Florida as areas of interest.

That showed in the new staff’s first month with the late addition of Georgia quarterback Steven Bench to the class. New names like Bench join players like local star Eugene Lewis who stuck it out with Penn State through the past few months to create a unique group of Lions. “I’ll say this, the parents and the kids that stayed with us, they are all Penn State people,” Johnson said. “They really are. They stayed with us for all the right reasons. They did not waver. They hung around to see what was going to happen. “This signing class, they are going to be special kids. … They took a step, a leap of faith.”

For the first time in the 15-year history of the District 2 Duals Tournament, Coughlin is trying to reach the championship match. The Crusaders (5-1 Division I, 11-2 overall) grabbed the Wyoming Valley Conference’s top seed for the Class 3A event and only has to win two meets today at Pittston Area High School to get to that elusive trip to the finals. In its quarterfinal meet, Coughlin will face Scranton. If the team beats the Knights in a matchup of teams that have never advanced to the district finals, it will see either West Scranton or Pittston Area in the semifinals. The Crusaders defeated both potential opponents in the last seven days. What makes those two victories more cherished is that the Crusaders had to rebound from a tough upset loss to Crestwood on Jan. 25 for their only divisional setback of the season. “(The loss) took away our sense of entitlement. Some kids think you’re entitled to win it,” Coughlin coach Steve Stahl said. “It shows you what Crestwood or any other team could do by just bringing 14 guys that want to wrestle.” While the Crusaders are the WVC top seed in Class 3A, LakeLehman is the conference’s No. 1 seed in 2A and will be attempting to tie Hazleton Area for the most duals championships in D2 history. The Black Knights, however, have advanced to the championship match a district-record 10 times. They will get started tonight against Scranton Prep as the 2A event will be held at LakeLehman for the first two rounds. On Saturday, the two tournaments will conclude simultaneously at Pittston Area for the finals at 7 p.m. The two district champions will advance to the PIAA Championships on Thursday at Giant Center in Hershey. Here’s a closer look at the eight Wyoming Valley Conference teams participating in the District 2 Duals Tournament: CLASS 3A WVC No. 1 Coughlin Record: 5-1 Division I, 11-2 overall Last appearance: 2011 (lost in quarters to Honesdale) Last championship: none Possible Lineup: 106: Bobby Hawkins, Fr.;113: Billy Poray, So.; 120: Ed Ciprich, Jr.; 126: Brandon Butry, Fr.; 132: Zach Hinkle, Fr.; 138: Frankie Mahmoud, Sr.; 145: Dom Gulius, Sr.; 152: Nick Davi, Jr.; 160: Troy Vannucchi, Sr.; 170: Paul Cole, So.; 182: Joey Parsnik, Sr.; 195: John Olson, Sr.; 220: Jordan Phillips, Jr.; 285: Brad Emerick, Jr. Tournament Outlook: The Crusaders are hitting stride at the right time and are coming off a huge win over Pittston Area. They open with Scranton then could have a rematch with Pittston Area in the semifinals. WVC No. 2 Wyoming Valley West Record: 5-1 Division I, 10-4 overall Last appearance: 2009 (lost in semifinals to Pittston Area) Last championship: 2001 Possible Lineup: 106: James Wright, Fr.; 113: Alex Tirco, So.; 120: Travis Roper, So.; 126: Kyle Krasavage, Jr.; 132: Nathan Cheek, So.; 138: Derrick Simms, Jr.; 145: Cody Cordes, Fr.; 152: Nick Palkovic, Sr.; 160: Brian Dwyer, Sr.; 170: Trey Cowman, Jr.; 182: Alan Sakosky, Jr. or Tom Smulowitz, Sr.; 195: Ian Moran, So.; 220: Brandon Baird, Jr.; 285: T.J. Evans, Sr. Tournament Outlook: If it wasn’t for losing two bouts to Coughlin by default in a dual last month to begin the season, the Spartans may have been the conference’s top seed. Either way,

Up Next District 2 Duals Championships Today: at Pittston Area (Class 3A) and Lake-Lehman (2A); quarterfinals 5 p.m. and 6:30; semifinals 8 p.m. Saturday: Both finals at Pittston Area, 7 p.m. Admission: $6 adults; $4 students

WVW would likely have to get past Delaware Valley to win the event, but now it may have to see the Warriors in the semis instead of the finals. WVC No. 3 Pittston Area Record: 4-2 Division I, 8-5 overall Last appearance: 2011 (lost in finals to Delaware Valley) Last championship: 2004 Possible Lineup: 106: Jamie Scarantino, Sr.; 113: Dave Deleo, Fr.; 120: Tyler Lutecki, So.; 126: Dan Gambini, Fr.; 132: Brad Rush, Jr.; 138: Kevin Wesolowski, So. or Tyler Koval; 145: Angelo Lussi, Jr.; 152: Frank Ardo, Jr.; 160: Sam Falcone, Jr.; 170: open; 182: Pat Nallin, Sr.; 195: Eric Danaher, So.; 220: John Minich, Jr.; 285: Chris Wesolowski, Sr. Tournament Outlook: The Patriots have advanced to the finals five out of the last six years. If they are to reach the championship dual again this time around, they will have to go through West Scranton and possibly Coughlin. WVC No. 4 Hazleton Area Record: 3-3 Division I, 4-16 overall Last appearance: 2010 (defeated Delaware Valley in finals) Last championship: 2010 Possible Lineup: 106: Lucas Johnson, Sr.; 113: Larry Romanchik, Fr.; 120: Jeremy Vopava, Jr.; 126: Derek Spachman, Fr.; 132: Josh Mussoline, Jr.; 138: Kody Masters, Jr.; 145: Daniel Bove, Jr.; 152: Randy Lisnock, Jr.; 160: Adam Fredmund, Jr.; 170: Tom Biesadesky, Sr.; 182: William Ramirez, Jr.; 195: Chad Hoffman, Sr.; 220: Taylor Schermerhorn, Jr.; 285: open Tournament Outlook: It seems like it was just yesterday that the Cougars were finishing off a fourpeat as duals champs. The team has come a long way since a rough 2011 campaign, but it got a tough draw having to face Delaware Valley in the quarters. The Cougars have wrestled a tough schedule this season, including a loss to DelVal in December. CLASS 2A WVC No. 1 Lake-Lehman Record: 6-0 Division II, 18-1 overall Last appearance: 2011 (lost to Western Wayne in quarterfinals) Last championship: 2004 Possible Lineup: 106: John Tomasura, Fr.; 113: Jimmy Stuart, Fr.; 120: Zeb McMillan, Jr.; 126: Austin Harry, So.; 132: Josh Sayre, Fr.; 138: Jake Winters, Sr.; 145: Josh Winters, So.;152: Bryan Carter, Sr.; 160: Bobby Wright, So. 170: Nick Shelley, Sr.; 182: Derek Dragon, Fr.; 195: Brady Butler, So.; 220: open; 285: Dustin Jones, So., or Jamie Aldrich, Sr. Tournament Outlook: LakeLehman has reached the duals finals a district-record 10 times in the 15-year history of the event and may have the best chance of any WVC team to make it 11. The Black Knights start off with Scranton Prep, having defeated it twice this season. Lehman has defeated every team in the bracket except Valley View and Western Wayne because those two weren’t scheduled. WVC No. 2 Dallas Record: 5-1 Division II, 16-11 overall Last appearance: 2011 (lost to Meyers in finals) Last championship: none Possible Lineup: 106: Dominic DeGraba, Jr.; 113: Aaron Kliamovich, Fr.; 120: Jimmy Caffrey, Jr.; 126: Eric Young, So.; 132: Jordan Visneski, Sr.; 138: Steven Mingey, Jr.; 145: Zach Macosky, Jr.; 152: Kris Roccograndi, Jr., or Connor Martinez, So.; 160: Roccograndi or Martinez; 170: Billy Dixon, Sr.; 182: Ryan Kozloski, Jr. or Dominic Oliveri, So.; 195: Garrett Artsma, Sr.; 220: Ryan Monk,

Fr.; 285: Jake Carr, Jr. Tournament Outlook: If the Mountaineers are going to advance to their second straight final, they will likely have to get past Lackawanna League top seed Western Wayne in the semifinals for the second year in a row. Dallas is looking for that elusive first duals title after two previous runner-up finishes in 2006 and 2011. This may be the team’s best chance since it is moving up to Class 3A next year. WVC No. 3 Meyers Record: 4-2 Division II, 8-11 overall Last appearance: 2011 (defeated Dallas in finals) Last championship: 2011 Possible Lineup: 106: Sean Bergold, Sr.;113: Justin Elick, Jr.;120: Vito Pasone, Sr.; 126: Kashif Alston, Jr.; 132: Tyler Patronick, Fr.; 138: Jeff Nealon, Sr.; 145: Darren Stucker, Sr.; 152: Eric Carty, Sr.; 160: Johntae Nelson, So.; 170: Dijon Townes, Sr.; 182: Adrian Brito, Jr.; 195: Bryan Velez, Jr.; 220: open; 285: open Tournament Outlook: The Mohawks have had a down year after winning the division and duals championships last season. But if there’s a team that could pull off upsets in this tournament, Meyers is one of those teams if the right matchups occur. WVC No. 4 Wyoming Area Record: 3-3 Division II, 6-8 overall Last appearance: 2010 (lost to Western Wayne in quarterfinals) Last championship: none Possible Lineup: 106: Shaun Vasquez, Fr.; 113: Mark O’Malley, Fr.; 120: Carm Mauriello, Jr.; 126: Steve Barush, Jr.; 132: Andy Schutz, Jr.; 138: Nick Heck, Jr.; 145: Shaun O’Malley, Sr.; 152: Ryan Filipiak, Sr.; 160: Nick Mazzone, Sr.;170: Evan Petrosky;182: Jude Polit-Moran, Fr.; 195: Shawn Whiting, Jr.; 220: Corey Popovich, Sr.; 285: Carl Zielinski, Jr. Tournament Outlook: For their first appearance in the event since 2010, the Warriors will have to take on their last opponent in the same round with Western Wayne. Under first-year coach Steve Mytych, Wyoming Area has been competitive in just about every dual until the end. That should be expected against the Wildcats as well.

AHL

Pens, Bears set to get reacquainted East Division’s top two teams will play three times in the next five games. By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

It’s been a while since the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have seen their biggest rival, the Hershey Bears. December 28 to be exact, when the Penguins won 6-5 in shootout at Hershey. Still, the month apart has done little to fade the Penguins’ memories of their East Division rival, who they will face three times in the next five games. It all begins tonight when the Bears come to town trailing the Penguins by a point for first place in the division. Faceoff is at 7:05 p.m. “We haven’t seen them for a month, but it just seems like we’re always around them even when we don’t play them,” said captain Ryan Craig. “You always know what’s going on in Hershey.” Coming into tonight, the Penguins have won five out of eight contests against the Bears. The Penguins travel to Hershey to face the Bears again on Sunday, followed by another trip to the Giant Center on Sunday, Feb. 12. It all adds up to a lot of points on the line that could have a significant impact on the standings. “It’s huge,” said forward Goeff Walker. “They’re one point behind us with a game in hand. If we

can get a win tonight, that will put us three points ahead to start the weekend.” Right behind the Penguins and Bears are the Norfolk Admirals, who are three points out of first place, making the division even tighter. But head coach John Hynes isn’t looking at the tight division race. He’s just taking it one game at a time. “We’re really not talking about it. We’re talking about being ready to go tonight,” he said. “That’s our focus.” RUST, WILD INK CONTRACTS On Thursday Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton signed F Matt Rust and D Cody Wild to AHL contracts. Wild was originially signed to a professional try-out agreement while was Rust was on an amateur try-out agreement for most of the season. Wild, 24, has two assists and is a plus-4 through 35 games. Wild logged a ton of ice time when the Penguins defense was riddled by injuries and call-ups during the first half of the season. “He’s earned it from day one,” Hynes said. “No matter what situation he’s been in, he’s done a very good job. Cody’s a high character player who we can rely on.” Rust joined the Penguins on Oct. 11 and has two goals and eight assists in 27 games. He has developed into a valuable penalty killer and faceoff specialist during his rookie season. “Like a lot of guys here, Matt

came in and had to earn a job. He found a bit of a niche with the penalty kill and faceoffs,” Hynes said. “With both of these guys, there’s been a lot of consistency to their games and that’s what you want – Guys you can count on regularly.” SCHNELL BACK The Penguins recalled enforcer Ryan Schnell from Wheeling on Thursday. In eight games with the Nailers this year, Schnell posted 75 penalty minutes. With tough guy Steve MacIntyre on the roster, Hynes said Schnell was sent to Wheeling to gain some playing time and conditioning. “Ryan’s been a big part of our team this year and we wanted to have him in Wheeling to keep his game sharp,” Hynes said, adding it is possible that he will dress both Schnell and MacIntyre for games. The Penguins also signed F Cody Chupp to a PTO on Thursday. He has three assists in 10 games over two stints with the Penguins this season, along with 22 points in 29 games with Wheeling. INJURY UPDATE Hynes said F Brandon DeFazio is day-to-day with an upper body injury, while defensemen Alexandre Picard and Boris Valabik aren’t close to returning. Hynes added that Valabik, who has appeared in three games, has not been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

NHL

Flyers, Caps exchange minor leaguers PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired right wing Matt Ford from the Washington Capitals for defenseman Kevin Marshall in a trade of minor leaguers.

Ford had 10 goals and 28 points in 39 games for Washington’s AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears. He will be assigned to the Adirondack Phantoms. Ford has 50 goals and 100 points in 190 career AHL games with Hershey, Lake

Erie and Hartford. Marshall appeared in 10 games for the Flyers this season. He had two goals and three assists in 32 games for Adirondack this season. The deal was announced Thursday.

Simmonds helps Philadelphia snap Predators’ streak at five The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Wayne Simmonds scored two goals, Matt Read and Claude Giroux also had goals, and the Philadelphia Flyers snapped Nashville’s five-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory over the Predators on Thursday night. Ilya Bryzgalov made 26 saves to earn his 175th career win, and the Flyers finally played just 60 minutes. They went to a shootout in their previous three contests, losing twice. Ryan Suter had Nashville’s lone goal. The Predators had won nine of their last 10 games and entered with the NHL’s best record since Dec. 28, going 13-2. Simmonds gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead with 4:19 left in the first period. His turnaround wrister sailed through traffic and past goaltender Anders Lindback. Simmonds’ power-play goal with 4:41 left in the game sealed the win after the Predators cut the deficit to 2-1. Simmonds scored his 15th goal off a rebound of a shot by Giroux, who added an empty-netter. It was a much-needed home win for Philadelphia in a matchup of two teams that came in second in their division and fourth in their conference. The Flyers improved to 12-7-4 at the Wells Fargo Center. A few minutes after the Flyers failed to capitalize on a two-man advantage, Read extended the lead to 2-0 with an unassisted goal in the second period. Read stole the puck from Kevin Klein near Philadelphia’s blue line and started a breakaway. He faked a pass to Harry Zolnierczyk and fired a slap shot from the left faceoff circle that went through Lindback’s legs. Read, an undrafted free agent, leads NHL rookies with 16 goals. The 25year-old forward is strengthening his bid to win the Calder Trophy with every goal. Nashville’s Craig Smith nearly tied it at 1 in the second period when his one-timer hit the post. Seconds later, Bryzgalov made the save on Smith’s point-blank shot from inside the right faceoff circle. Smith finally got the Predators a tally when he set up Suter’s goal with

11:23 remaining. Smith sent a crossing pass between Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros’ legs to Suter, who scored his first goal in 27 games to get Nashville within 2-1. Hurricanes 3, Bruins 0 BOSTON — Cam Ward made 47 saves — 22 in the first period and 20 in the third — Brandon Sutter had a goal and an assist, and the Carolina Hurricanes finished their first season-sweep of the Boston Bruins with a victory. The Hurricanes, who won all four meetings with the Bruins, are 15-25-9 against the rest of the NHL and are last in the Eastern Conference. Carolina outscored Boston 14-5 in the season sweep, the franchise’s first over Boston, dating to the days when the team was the Hartford Whalers. Eric Staal scored in the first period, Tuomo Ruutu converted Sutter’s rebound in the second, and Sutter added a goal 3:13 into the third. Devils 5, Canadiens 3 NEWARK, N.J. — Zach Parise scored two goals, including the goahead tally with 2:44 remaining, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Montreal Canadiens. David Clarkson also scored twice, including an empty-netter in the final seconds. Dainius Zubrus added a goal, and Ilya Kovalchuk had three assists for the Devils, who have won two straight. Martin Brodeur made 27 saves. Jets 2, Lightning 1 TAMPA, Fla. — Kyle Wellwood scored 3:14 into overtime to lead the Winnipeg Jets past the Tampa Bay Lightning. Wellwood scored from in close off a left-circle pass from Blake Wheeler. Wheeler also scored for the Jets, who had lost seven straight games at Tampa Bay dating to the team’s days in Atlanta. Ondrej Pavelec finished with 30 saves. Victor Hedman scored and Mathieu Garon stopped 22 shots for the Lightning, who snapped a season-best fivegame winning streak. Garon fell to 5-1 overall against the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise.

Seamon prepping for third javelin title Jillian Seamon is competing with the University of Delaware women’s indoor track team this winter, but it’s only to get ready for the outdoor season. Seamon (Hazleton Area) is competing in the 20-pound weight throw and finished eighth in that event at last Saturday’s Thomson Invitational at Delaware. But Seamon’s main event with the Blue Hens is the javelin, which is held during the outdoor season that starts in March. She’s a two-time Colonial Athletic Association champion in that event after finishing second as a freshman. “I see Jillian continuing her victory mark at the CAA Championships this spring,” coach Wendy MacFarlane said. “Our hope is for her to qualify for the (NCAA) East Regionals and possibly the NCAAs this year.” Seamon didn’t compete indoor last season so MacFarlane is happy to have her on the squad this winter. “Jillian is a delightful person,” the coach said. “She is so easy to get along with and her pleasant personality and her willingness to work for her success are just a few of her attributes. “She has been working very hard trying to balance her senior year responsibilities as an athletic training major and being the best athlete she can be. She gets the job done both on and off the field.” The Blue Hens will compete in the New Balance Invitational today and Saturday in the New York City Armory. HIMLIN LEARNING THE ROPES – Freshman Sam Himlin (Wyoming Valley West) has played in the last eight games off the bench for the Navy women’s basketball team.

Palmer takes lead in Phoenix The Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Ryan Palmer parred his final hole at dusk for a 7-under 64 and the lead Thursday in the suspended first round of the Phoenix Open. The start of the round was delayed an hour because of frost, and play was suspended because of darkness at 6:05 p.m. with 42 players unable to finish. Last year, frost and frozen greens delayed play nine hours during the week, forcing a Monday finish. “I knew I was going to be here in the morning for the second round, so I wasn’t worried about it if we had to come back and restart,” Palmer said. “So, I didn’t think about it and I just kept hitting shots and sticking to my game plan.” Webb Simpson was a stroke back on the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale. “It’s one of those courses that just fits your eye well,” said Simpson, the highestranked player in the field at No. 6. Palmer switched back to a trusted Odyssey putter model after missing the cuts in his previous starts this year in the Sony Open and Humana Challenge. The three-tour PGA Tour winner made seven birdie putts from 10-15 feet. “I used the exact same putter the last two years, and of course had two of the best years of my career,” Palmer said. “But toward the end of the year last year, around the BMW, I just got frustrated with not making anything, so I thought I’d try something different, put a similar style head in play and actually had some success.

Planned W-B eatery seeks zoning aid

B R I E F

Prudential, states settle

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department and regulators in six other states announced Thursday a settlement with Prudential Insurance Company of America and some of its affiliates in which the company agreed to change its policies to better locate beneficiaries.. Under the agreement, Prudential will use the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File on a uniform basis for locating beneficiaries and making payments to them. It also requires Prudential to pay a total of $17 million to those states participating in the agreement.

New Chinese restaurant would be operated by an area family. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

According to a legal notice published Thursday, the developer is seeking to re-

Statewide slot revenue grew by 7.4 percent over January 2011, to $190.5 million. The Plains Township casino’s slots added 1.6 percent in revenue, to $18.4 million, the seventh most in the state. Mount Airy Casino Resort near Mount Pocono showed 2.3 percent growth, but had the lowest slot revenue of any Pennsylvania casino, $10.8 million. The state collected $103.5 million in tax revenue from slot play in January.

Jobless claims fall again

The number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell last week to a level that signaled a steadily improving job market. Unemployment applications fell 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 367,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, dropped for the third straight week to 375,750. That’s the second-lowest level for the four-week average since June 2008. Another report showed worker productivity rose at a 0.7 percent annual rate, a slower pace in the fourth quarter than in the prior three months.

Workers’ comp costs down

Facebook not an invincible giant

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department has approved a 5.7 percent decrease in overall workers’ compensation costs that will result in $160 million in savings for Pennsylvania employers, Insurance Commissioner Mike Consedine said Thursday. Individual employers’ rates will vary according to the type of business, as well as the employer’s specific claims history.

The numbers in Facebook’s IPO filing this week give us the picture of a titan, but not an unstoppable one. Such filings, as a matter of course, must recite a list of even the most unlikely of risk factors. Many are just boilerplate. But there are four areas where the company shows clear vulnerability. MOBILE: Facebook said it had 425 million monthly active users who access Facebook through a smartphone, tablet or some other mobile product. That’s more than half of the 845 million who use Facebook. The problem: Facebook serves no ads on its mobile products. And therefore, it makes no money directly from those mo-

But there are only so many people online, about 2 billion, and Facebook has 845 million of them. Subtract the 500 million in China, and there aren’t many left to get. So, inevitably, growth slows. GOVERNANCE: Founder Mark Zuckerberg has arranged extraordinary agreements that allow him to vote the shares of his biggest investors. That gives him final say on just about all strategic decisions and corporate governance issues. That’s fine as long as things are hunkydory and growth and profits are headed up and to the right. But if there is a stumble, all the criticism is likely to fall on Zuckerberg’s shoulders. The pressure from the markets will be intense. And when that happens, his ideals will be tested to a degree that may be hard for him to imagine.

bile users. The lack of a clear mobile strategy was the headline for Chris Silva, an analyst with Altimeter Group. “I think it can materially change the fortunes of Facebook,” Silva said. ZYNGA: The IPO filing revealed that 12 percent of Facebook’s revenues come through ads and payments from Zynga games such as “FarmVille” and “CityVille.” That’s up from 10 percent the previous year. So Facebook needs Zynga to keep making hit games almost as much as Zynga does. USER GROWTH: The company has built its remarkable revenue growth by insisting that it was mainly focused on building its user base. The strategy has paid off, and Facebook has silenced the doubters.

BALTIMORE — Offshore wind farms along the East Coast took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said Thursday. Obama administration Interior Secretary Ken Salazar also said his department was trying to speed up the process for issuing renewable energy leases. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. “There are a number of developers who are very interested in developing offshore wind here and our goal is to hold the auctions and be able to issue the leases now, in 2012,” Salazar said. Dominion Virginia Power said that it is interested in building up to 400 wind turbines in waters about 20 miles off Virginia Beach. The 2,000 megawatts the turbines could produce would generate enough power for 500,000 households. The Interior Department said before the waters would be opened, the public would have a chance to comment. Michele Siekerka, the Assistant Commissioner of Economic Growth and Green Energy in New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection, said Thursday’s announcement will speed the building of offshore turbines by a year or more. Eleven developers have submitted proposals totaling 12,000 megawatts and are expected to be able to bid later this year for leases. The companies will still have to do environmental studies of their own areas, but could be producing power by 2016 or 2017, she said. NATURAL GAS $2.55

Dry northerly winds overnight helped to clear out the clouds, setting us up for a good deal of sunshine today. Despite the arrival of colder temperatures, the bare ground is able to absorb more of the sun's energy, which will help to keep readings above normal the next few days and nights. A nearby zone of high pressure will sponsor more sunshine tomorrow. As a storm approaches on Sunday, a cold front diving southward out of Canada will deflect the storm south of here and so the dry weather will continue. In fact, I expect nothing more than flurries here through the middle of next week. - Tom Clark
