Coal Creek of Plymouth borough and township gets 1 of 3 DEP grants to county. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

A $674,790 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection will be used to stabilize and strengthen the banks of Coal Creek in Plymouth Township and borough, hopefully preventing the kind of devastation caused by flash flooding in July. The flooding on July 3 washed out two bridges and a portion of roadway, damaged houses Yudichak and stranded some homeowners. The grant, offered through the Growing Greener proMullery gram, is one of three totaling $1.26 million earmarked for projects in Luzerne County that were announced Friday. The other communities that will benefit are Harveys Lake, which will receive $370,100 to fund a continuing project to reduce sediment buildup in the lake, and Earth Conservancy, which will receive $250,000 to treat acid mine run-off from the Askam borehole in Hanover Township. News of the Coal Creek grant was applauded by State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, and State Rep. Gerald Mullery D-Newport Township, who lobbied for funding. Yudichak said funding for environmental projects has been shrinking, and there was concern little to no money would be available to assist in restoring the creek. “We walked through that neighborhood along Coal Street and the devastation was just remarkable,” Yudichak said. “You really felt overwhelmed that there might not be any money to get that area back to whole again … I really have to compliment how the common-

Dad cited near son’s memorial Dan Madry says fine for criminal trespass on Glen Summit Co. land is payback for suing company. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

FAIRVIEW TWP. – While walking his dog last month, Dan Madry thought the wind and rain would be their only company on a visit to the spot where his son was killed in a car crash. He was wrong and it cost him. Madry said he received a $125 citation for criminal trespass in the mail from Fairview Township police this week after a woman photographed him on private property the morning of Jan. 23. He viewed it as the latest form of harassment against him since his family named the land owner Glen Summit Co. as one of the defendants in the death of his son Brian. “I think it’s disgusting. To a dad who lost a 16-year-old and you do this to me,” said Madry on Wednesday.

He paid the fine and hopes to recover it by challenging the citation in a hearing before a district judge. It’s money he and his family could use. Madry, 51, of Wright Township, has been unable to work as a truck driver since he blacked out and crashed a trac-

COURT BRIEF WILKES-BARRE – The homicide trial of a West Hazleton man scheduled to begin on April 9 has been rescheduled to begin three weeks later. Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley said Thursday the trial of Benjamin Westbrooks, 22, charged in the November 2010 shooting death of Alicia Weaver, of Hazleton, will now begin on

April 30. The delay was due to scheduling conflicts between the judge and attorneys. According to court papers, a man identified as an eyewitness to the shooting, Daniel Smith, 23, of Brooklyn, N.Y., testified at a January 2011 preliminary hearing that he saw Westbrooks holding a gun when Weaver was killed. Smith said Westbrooks and Weaver were arguing about money that Westbrooks suspected she stole.

played neatly into a recurring theme during the forum of the contentious party endorsement of Welch the previous weekend. “What you have felt in the twist of your arm to get a vote for a candidate preferred by a few people is what Washington is all about,” Rohrer said. “When individuals, by their own testimony, are threatened with loss of jobs, if they do not, it is just like Washington.” He did not mention names, although he and others have said that Gov. Tom Corbett went to unusual lengths to persuade state committee members to vote for Welch. Asked for a response, state GOP executive director Mike Barley said later it is not uncommon for candidates to seek the endorsement, but later oppose it once they don’t receive the party’s support. “The truth is that the committee was eager to support a candidate in the U.S. Senate race who wasn’t a career politician, who has a strong record of creating jobs in the private sector and will take the fight to Senator Casey this fall and win this race,” Barley wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “That is why the Republican Party of Pennsylvania overwhelmingly voted to endorse Steve Welch.” Scaringi also criticized the process, drawing applause when he said that the Republican Party leadership should not pick the party’s candidate to challenge Casey.

Beisel said Trooper Tim Young, deputy fire marshal, was at the house Friday searching for the cause of the blaze. “Right now, it’s undetermined,” Beisel said. “With the damage to the rear of the house, it is too tough to tell.” Frank Yanik was able to escape the burning house carrying his twin boys. Firefighters from Back Mountain communities responded to the house shortly after 7 p.m. Beisel said a firefighter injured his finger on a ladder. There were no other reported injuries.

Corbett noted that Solano has worked for and advised nine Pennsylvania governors, offering them advice and counseling. “Pat not only has helped governors, he has helped the entire Commonwealth,” Corbett said. “Pat was elected to serve on a school board in the year I was born. He has gone on to help many to become elected officials. I know I would not be here today if it weren’t for the advice and counseling I received from Pat Solano.” Corbett, who presented Solano with a proclamation, said attending the event was “not even a decision.”

WILKES-BARRE – Leadership Wilkes-Barre presented its Community Leadership Award to Pat Solano Friday night – and then they named the award after him. With a room filled with judges, cabinet secretaries, elected officials, business leaders and community giants, Solano was humble in accepting the award. “I didn’t think I was that good,” Solano, 86, said. “Benny Goodman once said when accepting an award, ‘I’m not entitled to accept this and I have arthritis too, and I’m not entitled to that either.” Gov. Tom Corbett delivered the main address and put Solano’s stature in perspective. “There’s only one dignitary in this room – Pat Solano,” Corbett said. See LEADERSHIP, Page 4A

Credit card statements, copies of which were obtained by The Times Leader on Friday, show that Ditzler Vito DeLuca, the charged more housing authorthan $2,000 on the card for pur- ity’s solicitor, said chases from home board members shopping net- are seeking the work QVC from audit to determine August 2010 through Novem- if there are any improprieties ber 2011.

It’s believed Ditzler reimbursed the authority for the charges immediately after they were incurred, DeLuca said, but he questioned why the card was used for personal use at all. “A government credit card should never, under any circumstances, be used for personal items. It could be argued that is an abuse of authority,” DeLuca said. The authority also is questioning other charges, including multiple charges to Johnny D’s restaurant in 2010 that totaled $2,971, and a $102.50 charge to Valley Seafood. Ditzler was fired as executive director on Jan. 19. DeLuca declined to comment on whether the credit card charges led to her termination, saying he could not discuss the matter because it’s a personnel issue. The authority’s board voted Thursday to seek proposals for an audit of its books for 2009, 2010 and 2011. DeLuca stressed that neither he nor any board member is accusing Ditzler of any wrongdoing. The board decided it needed to have a professional review the books to determine if there are any problems. “We looked at some of these charges and determined someone with expertise in auditing should look at them and give us a report,” DeLuca said. “When you are entrusted with public money, you have to make sure every nickel is accounted for.”

Teacher Debra Ganz said it’s easy to get the students in these early grades enthusiastic about doing well on the tests. “You never forget your first PSSA,” she said, “just like you never forget your first time on a bike or first time driving a car.” The 2 p.m. event kicked off more intense focus on prepar-

months later and now the bill had risen to more than $3,000. Mark Robbins of Forty Fort got involved and tried to pay Boyer’s bill with a credit card, Glodzik said. “I still don’t know why Mark Robbins got involved,” Glodzik said. “But I wouldn’t accept the credit card because I was afraid the charge would be cancelled after they left with the car. I asked for cash or certified check.” Boyer has filed charges against Glodzik and Mayor Tom Leighton, claiming her car was stolen.

I’m willing to talk to her.” Boyer said she can’t afford to get the car back. She said she has no beef with Leighton; she’s just upset that “he always sticks up for Glodzik.” “(Glodzik) took me through hell with this car,” she said. “I’m not talking to him.” Boyer said she has another vehicle that’s in the shop for repairs.

ing for the tests, though in fun ways, Whalen said, pointing to a large representation of a football field on a hallway wall. Karen Coyne of Wilkes-Barre, a student teacher attending King’s College, said she and fellow student teacher Jarryd Lokuta of Dupont devised the game, which asks teams of fifthgrade students questions like the ones on the PSSA tests throughout February. Teams get points for correct answers and high-scoring students get recognition as “Most Valuable Players,” with their pictures posted on a neighboring display dubbed “The coach’s corner.” Whalen also likened the task

ahead to sports in his chat with the children, reciting the mantra many supportive coaches might use to calm jittery players. “We don’t care how you do; just try to do your best. If you do your best, we know you’ll do well.” Kendra may have been shy about admitting her pre-test butterflies, but the timidity slipped away as she headed past a photographer on her way to pizza. “Everyone is wondering if we’re going to be in the paper!” Well, there were about 180 students. We couldn’t fit everyone …

“Pat has been extremely valuable to so many,” Corbett said. “This is a roomful of dignitaries and we all look to him. And tonight I get to speak and he has to listen.” Solano thanked Corbett for attending. “When you come to the great Northeast, governor, you honor all of us,” he said. Mary Erwine, chairwoman of the Leadership Wilkes-Barre Board of Directors, welcomed the crowd and said Solano “devoted his life to public service.” “He served on the front lines, accepted every challenge and made a positive influence on our community,” Erwine said. Corbett said he and his wife, Susan, will be taking a trade mission to France and Germany. “I told Pat and he said, ‘Those are the countries I bombed.’ I am honored to know someone like Pat Solano who protected our country; I want to thank you,” Corbett said. During World War II, Solano completed 23 combat missions with the Eighth U.S. Air Force Heavy Bombardment Group. For his service, he was awarded the Group Presidential Citation, the Air Force Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, and the European Combat Theater Medal with two Bronze Stars. In his professional career he has held numerous positions, including senior counselor to Gov. Tom Ridge and Gov. Mark Schweiker, as well as senior adviser to the Pennsylvania State Senate Majority Leader, Dominick Pilleggi.

Glodzik claims he hasn’t kept those records, saying he began compiling them only in August on the advice of his attorney. Glodzik has 30 days to produce the records or appeal the ruling to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. Glodzik said he sends his receipts and bank statements to his accountant every month and a half. He said the city has never asked him to submit reports as required by the contract. LAG has been the city’s contracted towing company since April 2005. The company pays the city $50,050 each year to provide the service.

He said four “visionaries” – Tom Bigler, Tom Kiley, Ed Schechter and Jack Conyngham – were the founders of the organization. “They recognized that we needed a new generation of thinkers,” he said. “I commend Leadership Wilkes-Barre and its more than 2,000 graduates for all they have done for this community.” Erwine then announced that the award Solano received would be named the Patrick J.

Solano has also served as friend and adviser to numerous public officials and community leaders, and is credited with a willingness to share his knowledge and leadership expertise with others.

Unemployment rate falls in U.S. By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Reporter

Clear Channel is giving Madonna all its luvin.’ The radio giant announced plans Friday to premiere the 53-yearold pop star’s new single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’‘ and its music video across Clear Channel radio stations, electronic billboards and online venues. The Material Girl is expected to perform ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’’ and three other tunes at her Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday in Indianapolis. Her new album ‘MDNA’ is set to be released in March.

Storm cancels flights

A powerful winter storm swept across Colorado on Friday, forcing the cancellation of nearly 600 flights at Denver airport, closing parts of Interstate 70 and sparking a run on grocery stores before the worst weather descended. The eastbound storm brought blizzard warnings to eastern Colorado and winter storm warnings to southeast Wyoming, western Kansas and western Nebraska. It stretched as far south as New Mexico, where the Department of Transportation reported difficult driving conditions on several state highways because of icy snow. One of the hardest hit areas was Evergreen, west of Denver, where 3 feet of snow fell. Snow totals were mounting rapidly along the Front Range and in eastern Colorado, where 10 inches fell in Denver and 14 inches in Boulder. BEIRUT

Clashes kill people, soldiers

Deadly clashes erupted between government troops and rebels in suburbs of the Syrian capital and villages in the country’s south Friday, sparking fighting that killed at least 23 people, including nine soldiers, activists said. President Bashar Assad is trying to crush an 11-month-old uprising with a sweeping crackdown that has so far claimed thousands of lives, but neither the government nor the protesters are backing down and clashes between the military and an increasingly bold and armed opposition has meant much of the country is now engulfed in violence. The fighting spread to new areas Friday, with army dissidents reportedly seizing a security post in the rural town of Andan in the northwestern province of Aleppo, marking the first time rebels have struck so close to the powerful merchant city of Aleppo. The reports could not be independently confirmed. PORT-OF-SPAIN, TRINIDAD

Principal accused of cruelty

Police say a primary school principal in Trinidad has been charged with cruelty for allegedly pushing the heads of two boys into a toilet and flushing. Arlene Blackman did not enter a plea during Friday’s hearing. She was released on a $25,000 bond and faces a Feb. 16 court hearing. Police accuse Blackman of punishing the boys aged 8 and 10 after she found them playing in the bathroom. She had previously warned students that playing was not allowed in the bathroom. BUTTE, MONT.

Police chase off bucket list

A 55-year-old Montana man who says he “always wanted” to be part of a police chase can check that off his bucket list. The Montana Standard reports John C. Hughes followed a patrol car for seven blocks early Thursday before pulling his SUV around and taking off at speeds of up to 70 mph. Officers say the Butte man was driving faster than 100 mph on an interstate toward Rocker, Mont. Officers in that city laid out a spiked strip to flatten the tires on the SUV. A police report says Hughes told officers he “just always wanted” to see what it would be like to be in a police chase. Officers say Hughes had not been drinking. He was charged reckless driving while eluding police.

Illnesses are linked to raw milk The government says the milk is unsafe because of the pathogens cows may encounter on the farm.

By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — An outbreak of bacterial infections on the East Coast illustrates the popularity of raw, unpasteurized milk despite strong warnings from public health officials about the potential danger. Even presidential candidate Ron Paul has joined the cause of consumers looking to buy unprocessed “real foods” straight from the farm, saying government shouldn’t deny them that choice.

An outbreak of a campylobacter bacterial infection on the East Coast is a reminder of the potential hazards, however. Raw milk from a dairy in Pennsylvania is now linked to 38 illnesses in four states, and the farm has temporarily suspended sales. Consumers who want unpasteurized milk have to work to find it. It’s against federal law to transport it across state lines and most states don’t allow it to be sold in stores off the farm. Twenty states prohibit raw milk sales altogether. The government says the milk is unsafe because of the pathogens cows may encounter on the farm. The owner of the Pennsylvania dairy, Family Cow farm in Chambersburg, posted a message on the farm’s website last week saying that several customers had

called them to say they had been experiencing “acute diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.” The Pennsylvania health department has linked the outbreak to the farm.

Hackers attack websites for law enforcement By BRIAN SKOLOFF and DENISE LAVOIE Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — Saboteurs have hacked into the websites of several law enforcement agencies worldwide in attacks attributed to the collective called Anonymous, including in Boston and in Salt Lake City, where police say personal information of confidential informants and tipsters was accessed. The Utah hackers gained access this week to sensitive data, including citizen complaints

about drug crimes, including phone numbers, addresses and other personal information, police said. “We’re still knee deep in trying to get a feel for the extent of the problem,” Salt Lake City police Detective Dennis McGowan said. The group claimed responsibility for an attack on the website of a Virginia law firm for a U.S. Marine convicted in a deadly 2005 attack in Haditha, Iraq. The attacks come after Anonymous published a re-

cording of a phone call between the FBI and Scotland Yard early Wednesday, gloating in a Twitter message that “the FBI might be curious how we’re able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now.” In Greece, the Justice Ministry took down its site Friday after a video by activists claiming to be Greek and Cypriot members of Anonymous was displayed for at least two hours. In Boston, a message posted on the police website Friday said, “Anonymous hacks Bos-

WASHINGTON — In the most impressive surge for the job market since the middle of last decade, the United States added 243,000 jobs in January, far more than economists expected. The unemployment rate dropped to 8.3 percent, the lowest in three years. Hiring accelerated across the economy and up and down the pay scale. The high-salary professional services industry added 70,000 jobs, the most in 10 months. Manufacturing added 50,000, the most in a year. The report Friday from the Labor Department sent money pouring into the stock market and out of more conserva-

tive investments in bonds. Dow Jones industrial average futures, virtually flat before the report was released at 8:30 a.m. EST, jumped 100 points. The stock market is already off to its fastest start in 15 years as more investors start to believe the economic recovery is finally for real and will only get stronger. The Dow has gained 4 percent in 2012. It was the most jobs added since April and May 2010, when 277,000 and 458,000 jobs were created. But those months were skewed by massive hiring for the census. Before that, the last month with more job creation was March 2006. The unemployment rate was down

Hyder loses comp appeal

His newly appointed attorneys said they need more time to review court papers, evidence.

Sam Hyder has lost his appeal seeking workers’ compensation for on-the-job stress when he worked as Luzerne County deputy prison warden. Hyder, who was furloughed from the $74,263-a-year position in January 2010, argued he should be entitled to workers’ compensation because working conditions madehimanxious,depressedand ultimately led to an Aug. 5 blackout. Workers’ compensation Judge Brian Hemak denied Hyder’s claim in August 2010. In his written opinion, Hemak said county defense witnesses appeared “genuine and credible” during testimony, while Hyder did not. Hyder appealed to the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board. In its Jan. 30 order affirming Hemak’s decision, the appeal board said people seeking compensation must prove their injuries were caused by work incidents. When a disabling psychic injury is involved, claimants have an additional burden to prove the injury is a result of abnormal working conditions. The appeal board agreed with Hemak’s assessment that Hyder’s medical problems were a “subjective” reaction to normal aspects of a deputy warden’s job. Hyder pointed to several examples of alleged abnormal working conditions. For example, he cited death

WILKES-BARRE – The oftendelayed trial of accused killer Hugo Selenski was put off again Friday, and is now scheduled to begin Sept. 10. The request to delay the trial was made after Selenski’s newly appointed attorneys said they needed more time to review the voluminous court papers and evidence in the case. “It’s just impossible for us, having stepped into this in the last few weeks, to adequately prepare …” Selenski’s attorney, Shelley Centini said Friday of the trial originally scheduled to begin April 23. She is representing Selenski with another newly appointed attorney, Edward Rymsza, of Williamsport, and attorney David Lampman, who has been working on Selenski’s case for more than 18 months. “It is what it is,” Selenski said Friday while leaving the Luzerne County Courthouse after meeting with his attorneys privately for about an hour. Selenski, 38, is facing the death penalty if convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both 37. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. Their bodies were found on June 5, 2003, buried outside the Mount Olivet Road, Kingston Township, home where Selenski

lived. Judge Fred Pierantoni granted the defense attorneys’ request, even though prosecutors, Assistant District Attorneys Michael Melnick and Jarrett Ferentino, and First Assistant District Attorney Samuel Sanguedolce, said they were prepared to go forward with the April 23 previously scheduled trial date. Fassett’s family members voiced their displeasure with the continuance. “It’s like the victims have no rights, but (Selenski) has all the rights in the world,” Lisa Sands, Tammy Fassett’s sister, said in an interview Friday. “And that’s not

right … If you want to commit murder, do it in Luzerne County because you can get away with it. And I said that today in court and I’m sure the judge heard me because that’s when he hit his gavel.” Selenski’s trial was delayed most recently after a county judge in September granted Selenski’s request to allow him to represent himself after noting a “displeasure and irretrievable breakdown” with his previous attorneys. Just days before a November trial was scheduled to begin, Selenski said he felt he could not try the case himself and needed as-

sistance of counsel, leading to the appointment of Centini and Rymsza. Centini said Friday she and Rymsza are not familiar with a number of aspects of the case, including a robbery case from Monroe County in which Selenski was involved. Selenski is serving a 321⁄2-to-65-year state prison sentence after he was convicted by a Monroe County jury in July 2009 of robbing and assaulting a jewelry store owner in January 2003. The robbery case included evidence that zip ties and other materials were used that were similar to evidence relating to Selenski’s alleged crimes in Luzerne County. Melnick said Friday that prosecutors were still seeking to videotape the testimony of two witnesses they say are in ill health. Pierantoni said the testimony of 85-year-old Paul Benyovszky and Louise Bensancon will be videotaped on April 16. Melnick said he was withdrawing the request to videotape the testimony of Kerkowski’s wife, Kimberly, as her health has improved. Pierantoni also said any requests and court filings in preparation of the September trial must be filed by April 3. A hearing will be held after that date, the judge said.

Hemak and the appeal board challenged the accuracy of this claim because county Chief Deputy Coroner William Lisman had testified the late Dr. George Hudock, then county coroner, would never allow an observer to handle organs. Pressure to hire certain people was also cited by Hyder as an abnormal condition, but former Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla and prison Assistant Business Manager Jackie Grimes disagreed with his assessment in their testimony, the board said. “Even if claimant did experience some political pressure in making hiring decisions, that wouldbeanormalpartofanytype of leadership job, and not the type of incident that would be considered abnormal working conditions,” the appeal board decision said. The board also rejected Hyder’s portrayal of intense media coverage as another example of abnormal working conditions.

Plans considered to replace some technology at Bear Creek school for $50,000. By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

BEAR CREEK TWP. – Preliminary plans to replace some of the technology at the Bear Creek Community Charter School are relatively conservative but will still cost about $50,000, the school’s board of trustees learned Thursday. School CEO Jim Smith told the board the warranty is about to expire on 128 of the school’s computers, but many are still very usable. He proposed purchasing 26 new units for the computer lab and storing the older computers to be used as replacements for any of the others that break. Smith said the 34 staff laptops see hard use and break frequently, and he recommended replacing 10 of those. The preliminary technology replacement plan reviewed by the board also included funds to replace an email server that has been in use since 2005, as well as a new smart board for the science classroom. The board also reviewed plans to generate student enthusiasm for the upcoming Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests to be administered in March. The multi-day testing period will start each day with free breakfast for all students and include time for art, music and other fun recreational activities to help relieve tension after a morning spent taking the mandatory standardized tests. Plans call for the entire PSSA test period to be kicked off with a daytime bonfire on the school grounds on March 7, the board was told.

Dallas High gets metal detector The device, already in place, will screen students for the first time Monday.

By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

DALLAS – On Monday, students at Dallas Senior High School will be required for the first time to pass through a metal detector to enter the school. A single metal detector has been in place in the main entryway to the new high school since it opened last fall, but until now it hasn’t been used to screen students for weapons. Now that administrators have been trained in its usage and a new semester is beginning, Superintendent Frank Galicki said the district is prepared to roll out the security device. According to the district, the device will be used daily during a ten-minute interval between 7:30 and 8 a.m. The screening interval will take place at different times during the half-hour window on different days so the process will not slow the entry of students into the school. Students entering the school while screenings are taking place will be required to pass through a metal detector and have their bags scanned. If the metal detector continues to sound after a student has emptied his or her pockets and bag, a parent may be asked to come to the school to assist in screening before the student is granted entry. Students who refuse to comply are subject to discipline per the district’s policy on insubordination.

737688

Enhanced safety Galicki said the inclusion of metal detectors in the design of the new high school was studentdriven. The four students on the planning committee for the new school said they wanted the design to enhance student safety, and none objected to including metal detectors, Galicki said. “We didn’t have any rash episodes of weapons or violence or whatever; it was a student-driven request from the beginning,” Galicki said. “They thought it would be a very good addition to the school building. One of our mantras is to create a very safe and secure environment for the students and let them believe they are in a very desirable learning atmosphere.” Dallas isn’t the first local district to tighten security. Wyoming Area has a metal detector and employs security cameras; Greater Nanticoke Area has cameras and security cards that track when a person enters and leaves the high school; Hazleton Area employs security officers and uses cameras; Wilkes-Barre Career and Technical Center has a camera at entrances, a handheld metal detector and a probation officer on campus; West Side Career and Technology Center has security cameras; Lake-Lehman has cameras at its high school, requires ID cards for entry and has a metal-detector wand.

WILKES-BARRE – A woman charged along with her mother with stealing more than $700,000 in bingo proceeds from a volunteer Swoyersville fire company three years ago has been scheduled to stand trial on related charges. Carol Gamble, 50, of West Pittston, appeared in Luzerne County Court Friday where Judge Lesa Gelb scheduled her to stand trial on six related charges on May 7. Gamble’s mother, Catherine Drago, 80, is scheduled to appear in court for a pre-trial hearing on Feb. 16. State police at Wyoming say the women used their positions as officers with the Swoyersville Volunteer Hose Co. No. 1 to pilfer money collected through bingo games the department held during a threeyear period.

Attorneys said Friday Gamble’s trial is expected to last four days. The trial had been delayed when defense attorneys said they needed more time to review “numerous and significant” financial documents relating to the case. Gelb also scheduled a pretrial hearing for March 30 for Gamble, who is represented by attorney William Ruzzo. According to court papers, Drago, the fire company’s treasurer, and Gamble, the company’s president, took control in 2001 of collecting and depositing money generated at bingo games held as a fundraiser for the department. The state Bureau of Charitable Organizations began an investigation in 2005 after Drago submitted incomplete information as part of a routine survey the bureau conducts to determine if a charitable organization must register with the state. A bureau official became suspicious because the amount of revenue Drago reported the bingo generated was less than the bureau thought it should be.

A detailed audit then was conducted, which determined the hose company generated a total of $1,789,529 from Jan. 1, 2004, to Nov. 14, 2007. Of that amount, $1,054,781 was deposited into the department’s bank account, leaving $734,748 unaccounted for. Search warrants revealed Drago and Gamble issued checks totaling $416,077 to themselves dating from January 2004 to September 2006, according to court papers. Police did not say how the women allegedly spent the money or how much each is alleged to have taken. In September 2008, investigators seized a total of nine financial records of the two women. The search warrants sought financial and bank records, while a 10th filed in August permitted authorities to obtain Drago’s gambling wagers at seven Atlantic City, N.J., casinos. Casino courtesy cards were found in Drago’s residence, the search warrant affidavits say. Drago and Gamble were initially charged in December 2008.

OTHER OPINION: TRAVEL VISAS

Foreign tourists could help state

T

HE OBAMA administration wants to become more flexible in providing tourism visas, in a way that will not compromise border security. Encouraging more international travelers to visit the United States could boost the tourism business, and that could be a boon for Pennsylvania. Although President Barack Obama displayed the new initiative last month at Walt Disney World, its emphasis is not limited to theme parks. Emphasizing natural treasures, as well as human-made amusements, can help create a greater sense of national and regional pride. In this state, an infusion of cash from foreign travelers could find its way to destinations EDITORIAL BOARD

such as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Lake Erie and elsewhere. The administration predicts Brazilians’ appetite for foreign travel will nearly quadruple by 2016. For China, it’s 135 percent; for India, 50 percent. For Great Lakes states to get their share, business and government officials must seize the opportunity and develop what former Youngstown, Ohio, Mayor Jay Williams calls a “unified vision.” He heads a unit in the U.S. Labor Department that helps struggling communities diversify their economies. Expanding tourism in Pennsylvania will take not only “unified vision,” but unified action. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Drilling industry needs ‘reasonable’ regulations

I

n his State of the Union address, the president praised natural gas drilling, noting that it is creating jobs and decreasing our dependence on foreign sources of energy. Burdensome regulations and taxes will destroy the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania, hurting not only our workers and our economy, but also our nation’s quest for energy independence. That’s why Pennsylvanians must push for sensible regulations that will grow our local economy and strengthen our communities. Reasonable regulations for drilling are fine, but regulations need to preserve a competitive environment that ensures drillers can do their jobs. Counties with natural gas drilling have seen their unemployment rates drop while other Pennsylvania counties have yet to see significant recovery from the recent recession. Tens of thousands of new jobs have been created around our state, and there will be even more in future years if our state’s regulatory structure remains reasonable. We need the jobs created by natural gas drilling. To have those jobs, we can’t have an overly restrictive set of drilling regulations. Let’s hope our policymakers do the right thing on this issue and preserve this industry in our state. Maria Gillette Carbondale

Paterno didn’t deserve trustees’ harsh treatment

I

imagine the scenario plays out something like this: Joe Paterno gets to the Pearly Gates. St. Peter greets him with open arms and exclaims: “Come in, Joe. We will give you a better shake than the Penn State University trustees gave you. However, when they get here we will give them the same treatment they gave you.” One can only guess the real motivation of the trustees, but a good, old-fashioned power struggle seems to be a good guess. Yes, Joe claimed he should have done more, but I am not really sure what that more would have been. When he said he felt they (meaning the administrators) would do a better job than he did, I firmly believe he was sincere. He saw himself as a coach, not an investigator of allegations. Here was a man who came to a cow pasture of a college and helped to build a world-class university. When professional offers were made, he refused; and while other coaches demanded outrageous salaries, he settled with a salary far down the totem pole. So, after 61 years of dedication and love

for a place he called home, the board sends a note with a phone number. Could the trustees have been any more classless?

Busy school schedules lead to sleep deprivation

H

ave you ever noticed how different everything is when you have the chance to get the rest you need compared to when you don’t? You are more alert. You probably are more polite and have more patience. You feel refreshed and energized. My parents tell me that when they went to school it started at 8:30 a.m. and it ended at 3:30 p.m. They tell me they don’t remember complaining about not having enough rest or seeing other students falling asleep in class. I am a junior in high school. I have a sister in seventh grade and a mother who teaches in a different high school. My sister and I must be ready for the bus to pick us up at 6:50 a.m. Needless to say, it is busy in our house every morning. The first person must get up at 5 a.m. to start getting ready, and the rest quickly follow. As I look around at my classmates, I see some really tired people. Sleep deprivation definitely takes a toll on students. Many of my classmates have jobs in addition to trying to be part of a club or participate in a sport. I attend a school at which the teachers desire to prepare us for college. They do this by giving a large amount of homework, projects and exams, resulting in many of us needing to stay up until the late hours. Some teenagers drive to school in the mornings when their brains aren’t yet fully functioning. Driving drowsy is proven to be as dangerous as driving under the influence. One study shows that after staying awake for 24 hours in a row, a person will be about as impaired as if he or she had had enough alcohol to be legally drunk in most states.

DOONESBURY

When you’re sleep deprived, your immune system goes down, resulting in more illnesses. I believe the educational system should rethink what time students, and teachers, need to get up to begin their days, even if it means being let out of school later. I do get good grades, but I suffer greatly in order to do so. Perhaps one of the reasons that test scores are not as good today as they used to be is due to the lack of rest students get because of school schedules. Angela Pegarella Fairview Township

Sunday hunting would hurt size of deer herd

M

any hunters have been discussing if expanded Sunday hunting should be permitted in Pennsylvania. I believe this is a bad idea, because it would deplete our deer herd even more. There aren’t as many deer as there used to be because of other law changes we have made, such as altering the two-week buck season and three-day doe season. When we had those in place, our harvest numbers were up, and since then they have dramatically declined. Also, the number of doe permits has risen year by year in each section. This is a problem, because if we don’t have as many doe, there will be fewer amounts of deer there for the next hunting season. Hunting on Sundays also is a bad idea because that is a day to spend with family and to do other work around the house. Many landowners probably would not want other people hunting on their land if they are trying to get things done around the house and spend time outside with their families. The last thing we need is bullets or arrows flying around that can hurt people as they are trying to have a nice and peaceful Sunday. Eric Rinehimer Wright Township

Network misrepresents facts about oil pipeline

I

wish some people would crawl out from under the rock called Fox News and take a deep breath of fresh air. Facts: The proposed pipeline coming from Canada will not create hundreds of thousands of jobs, and they are not permanent jobs. I will give The Times Leader credit for doing a pretty good job in most cases of putting out the real story. How are we going to get past the hate if we don’t have the truth on which to fall back? Obama is fighting a money machine called “Citizens United,” and only the truth will help him get the job done for the working people of this country. Dale Eastman Meshoppen

Loeb did not respond to messages left Thursday and Friday at her home and office.

Back to commission So now the process of going back to the drawing board to recraft the legislative districts is back in the hands of the five-member LRC. “The Supreme Court said that the Reapportionment Commission has more work to do. And, we agree. … We have to do it right this time,” said Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills, who cast the lone dissenting vote among LRC members on the plan. A proposal being floated is to keep the lines that have been in effect the past 10 years in place for one more election cycle so there’s enough time for the commission to fairly redraw the districts and give the citizens and possibly the courts a chance to concur they’re lawful. Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, DWilkes-Barre, is in favor of such a proposal.

As first reported by The Associated Press on Tuesday, Komen had adopted criteria excluding Planned Parenthood from future grants for breast-cancer screenings because it was under government investigation, citing a probe launched by a Florida congressman at the urging of antiabortion groups. “We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political,” Komen said Friday.

Trucks travel along Interstate 81.

He said the weight increase’s impact on infrastructure should be taken into account. Nearly 5,000 state bridges in Pennsylvania have been deemed structurally deficient – the most in the nation – Chizmar said. In addition, 42 bridges are currently closed and 669 have weight restrictions due to structural concerns, he said. State police concerned Lt. Raymond Cook, head of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Division of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Patrol, said he is concerned that “allowing these types of weights over those kinds of bridges may lead to some catastro-

“I don’t think we have the time to do anything else without greatly impacting candidates and the public,” he said, acknowledging his opinion is not in line with many in his party. Democrats believe that leaving the districts in place gives them an advantage in this year’s election because it negates the more Republican districts the Republican-backed LRC plan created. Mike Carroll, D-Avoca, said he doesn’t believe keeping those lines in place is lawful. “It defeats the purpose of a census,” Carroll said. “I actually agree with the Republicans on this one. Keeping the old boundaries is not constitutional and gives voters in some districts disadvantages because of population shifts.” Stephen Miskin, a House GOP spokesman, said there’s a federal court hearing on Monday seeking to prevent the 2001 lines from be-

Though the Supreme Court noted that the computer technology available to the LRC could have made the final boundary plan easier to create and in a more timely manner, that same technology was cited by a dissenting judge who warned that time constraints will ultimately make the issue mute for this year’s election. Writing a dissenting opinion, Justice J. Michael Eakin, a Republican, said, “Computers or not, drawing a new plan using new rules will not happen in time for this year’s elections.” Revised game plan Candidates like Carroll, meanwhile, are out there collecting signatures on nominating petitions, but their game plan is different than in past years.

phe.” Cook said he also has concerns about the safety of truck drivers and other motorists that share the roadways. Cook’s division conducts roadside truck inspections for safety and weightcompliance. He said he’s concerned about how adding additional weight could affect truck maneuverability and stopping distance. “We oftentimes find brake deficiencies on commercial motor vehicles,” he said. “In fact that’s one of the most common problems that we find.” The American Automobile Association also opposes raising the weight limit. In a statement issued this week, AAA called on Congress to remove the

Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, said they’re focusing on their own hometowns and adjoining municipalities that are not likely to be removed from their districts no matter the plan. Carroll said he’s trying to get at least double the 300 required minimum signatures just from those in Avoca, Duryea and Dupont. Mullery said he’s doing the same in Nanticoke, Newport Township, Plymouth, Plymouth Township and Larksville. One more possibility that Yudichak raised is holding the presidential, U.S. Senate and statewide row office primary election on April 24 but holding primaries for the state legislative seats at a later date, perhaps even in the summer, so legal districts can be drawn and there are ample time periods for appeals, candidates to circulate petitions in the approved districts and for ballots to be printed.

But many of Komen’s own affiliates nationwide had objected to cutting off the grants, which totaled $680,000 in 2011.

Fairness issue raised Keith Whitebread, owner of D. B. Whitebread & Sons, a Sugarloaf Township trucking contractor working mainly for the construction industry, said he opposes the increase because it unfairly privileges large carriers. “It’s going to take a much larger toll on the equipment because the equipment’s only built to hold so much weight,” Whitebread said. “It sounds like they’re accommodating the much larger companies and the Canadian companies and possibly the Mexican companies.” The 20 trucks Whitebread owns are all configured to support an 80,000pound load, he said. To haul larger loads to compete with larger companies, he would need to install extra axles and tires and brakes rated for a higher capacity. he’s not running for reelection this year, blamed Republicans for not only playing politics with the process but “playing chicken with the appeals process” by waiting so late in the year to issue its final plan. “The election’s really up in the air,” Yudichak said. “You’re kind of in political limbo.” When asked which boundaries he’d prefer to see used in this election – the 2001 lines or the proposed but since defeated 2012 lines – he said “my preference is we reform the redistricting process so we can avoid situations exactly like this.” State House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, R-Bradford Woods, who was also on the LRC, issued a statement following the opinion’s release standing by what he felt was a plan that “firmly met its constitutional and statutory obligations.”

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood was reporting an outpouring of donations, large and small, that totaled $3 million between Tuesday evening and Friday afternoon. Planned Parenthood said the funds would be used to expand its breast health services, which already provide nearly 750,000 breast exams each year. Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, said in a telephone news conference that she was astonished by the flow of

donations and the often emotional support expressed for her organization on the Internet. “This was simply a story, when it broke, it just caught fire,” she said. “This kind of political bullying — folks are just saying, ‘Enough.”’ Anti-abortion groups had pressed Komen for years to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood, even to the extent of recalling pink Bibles that were benefiting Komen and boycotting its Race for the Cure events.

Hershey collapse begins with penalties and a big win by Pens captain Craig in a fight. By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Hershey goaltender Braden Holtby did Wilkes-Barre/Scranton a favor when he cleared the puck over the glass for a delay of game penalty in the third period of Friday’s contest. Bears defenseman Kevin Marshall did the Penguins another favor seconds later when he plastered Bryan Lerg face-first into the boards and earned a cross-checking minor. And Penguins PENGUINS captain Ryan Craig said thanks when he pummeled MarBEARS shall to the ice. A Bears implosion in the opening minutes of the third period allowed the Penguins to erase a three-goal deficit to earn a dramatic come-from-behind 4-3 win. It was the first time in 13 games that the Penguins came back from a three-goal deficit, and the win improves the Penguins to 2713-2-4 overall and 6-2-0-1 against Hershey this season. They also increased their lead for first place in the East Division to three points. After a lackluster effort in the first two periods resulted in a 3-0 Hershey lead, the Penguins regrouped in the locker room before the start of the third period. Head coach John Hynes said there was no yelling and screaming, but the players were well aware that things had to change in a hurry. “In the beginning of the game, Hershey took it to us. We were a step behind and we were disconnected,” Hynes said. “We had to compete better and play with a certain level of commitment.” Holtby’s delay of game penalty 17 seconds into the third period helped the Penguins find that level. A minute later, Marshall plastered Lerg into the boards to give the Penguins a five-on-three advantage, but Craig took matters into his own hands. Immediately after the hit, Craig dropped the gloves with Marshall and pounded him to the

It has not been on our agenda. It is not something we’ve focused on with our membership. And I don’t see that in the fore-

Royals rally for win, widen gap in division

AMANDA HRYCYNA/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

Tunkhannock’s Jordan Faux (right) tries to drive past Holy Redeemer’s Chase Makowski on Friday night in Wilkes-Barre.

WILKES-BARRE — The hole that Holy Redeemer was in early Friday night looked bad. But not as bad as the hole the Royals eventually tossed the rest of Division II into after a methodical climb past Tunkhannock. Guard Ryan DeRemer finally got a shot to fall for Redeemer,

THERE WAS ONCE a “gentleman’s agreement” among Big Ten football coaches. It was an unwritten policy that once a player verbally committed, he was considered offlimits to other programs in the conference. The new savior on the block apparently didn’t read the invisible fine print. On the job for only two months, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer nonetheless has amassed a pretty fair collection of enemies. Although he wasn’t directly mentioned by name at Michigan State on Wednesday during the introduction of the 2012 recruiting class, Meyer’s tactics were a source of consternation. Mark Dantonio brought in another good, solid recruiting class. It wasn’t nationally ranked, but that doesn’t really matter. He has guys who truly want to be there. The pieces fit the program’s personality – a bigger, more athletic defense. It would have been better, if not for Meyer’s SEC-like aggressiveness in taking the players he wants regardless of previous verbal promises made. Ohio State snatched away what was the Spartans’ top-ranked recruit, defensive end Se’Von Pittman, and at the last minute secured offensive tackle Kyle Dodson, who originally decommitted from Wisconsin and was strongly leaning toward MSU. What the Spartans lost Wednesday shouldn’t completely overshadow what they gained — a bevy of skilled players at wide receiver and defensive back who could contribute immediately. But it must be addressed because it reflects a new, more ruthless recruiting spirit in the Big Ten with Meyer’s arrival. If the Spartans want a seat at the grown-ups table, what are they prepared to do to combat this new pervasive attitude?

the first of his five threeHOLY pointers as the REDEEMER Royals defeated Tunkhannock 52-42 in TUNK’NNOCK Wyoming Valley Conference boys basketball. Redeemer improved to 3-0 in the second-half season and 9-9 overall. The Royals reached the .500 mark for the first time since Dec. 13, when they defeated Nanticoke in their second game of the season.

An Urban renewal in Big Ten

An ‘understanding’ no more Dantonio insisted his coaches would continue to recruit in a respectful manner – never formally going after a verbal commitment unless he publicly had decommitted. “It’s a new program, a new head coach and a new testing of the waters,” Dantonio said of Ohio State. “It’s a two-way street. It’s always a two-way street. There’s always got to be the other person listening as well. “But I do think that when it becomes a matter of twisting somebody – when you’re a 50year-old man or a 40-year-old man twisting a 17-year-old – that’s when it’s wrong. I’m not saying that’s happening in the Big Ten conference. But I see that happening around the country, when somebody decommits on the day of signing. That’s when you have to wonder about the tactics.” Defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi reiterated his comments from a luncheon at Canton, Ohio, this week when he said former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and Dantonio never called upon or talked to each other’s verbal commitments. “I’m not accusing anyone specifically,” Narduzzi said Wednesday. “All I’m saying was that there was time when there was an understanding between coaches that if two of you were going after somebody and they committed, you backed off.” Rich Rodriguez broke that code four years ago at Michigan

Federal prosecutors said Friday they are closing a criminal investigation of Lance Armstrong and will not charge him over allegations the seven-time Tour de France winner used performanceenhancing drugs.

Armstrong investigation closes No charges will be filed against the Tour de France legend in doping inquiry. By GREG RISLING Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Federal prosecutors dropped their investigation of Lance Armstrong on Friday, ending a nearly two-year effort aimed at determining whether the seven-time Tour de France winner and his teammates participated in a doping program. Armstrong has steadfastly denied he doped during his unparalleled career, but the possibility of criminal charges threatened to stain his legacy as the world’s greatest cyclist and could have cast a shadow over his cancer

charity work. “This is great news,” Armstrong attorney Mark Fabiani said in a statement. “Lance is pleased that the United States Attorney made the right decision, and he is more determined than ever to devote his time and energy to Livestrong and to the causes that have defined his career.” The probe, anchored in Los Angeles where a grand jury was presented evidence by federal prosecutors and heard testimony from Armstrong’s former teammates and associates, began with a separate investigation of Rock Racing, a cycling team owned by fashion entrepreneur Michael Ball. U.S. Attorney André Birotte Jr. announced in a press release that his office “is closing an investigation into allegations of federal

Huskies coach steps away indefinitely while dealing with debilitating back problems.

By JIM O’CONNELL and PAT EATON-ROBB Associated Press

STORRS, Conn. — University of Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun, who missed three games earlier this season because of NCAA sanctions, is taking an indefinite medical leave of absence because of back problems. The Hall of Fame coach of the defending national champions, who turns 70 in May, has been suffering for several months from Calhoun spinal stenosis, a spinal condition that causes him severe pain and hampers mobility. “I had back pain like never before last summer, thought it was back spasms,” he told The Associated Press on Friday. “I saw a neurologist and he told me about scoliosis, stenosis and other things and that there could be things like a bone spur and that I could probably need something done at some point. I went for the physical therapy and it worked, but it started to lock up sometimes recently and it was worse.” George Blaney, the team’s associate head coach, said Calhoun began feeling pain in his legs and rear end during last weekend’s road trip to Georgetown. “When we got off the plane, he really had trouble getting in the car and going home,” he said. Blaney will lead the team in Calhoun’s absence. The Huskies (14-7, 4-5 Big East) have lost four games in a row and fell out of the Top 25 for the first time in 28 weeks. They host Seton Hall on Saturday before traveling to Louisville Monday. The school confirmed that Calhoun will miss at least those two games. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spine, normally associated with aging and sometimes with arthritis. “The bottom line is I’m going to need some work done,” Calhoun told the AP. “In January the shooting pains were getting worse and after one plane ride I couldn’t even get up. I tried to hide it. I’m taking medicine right now for the pain and they are waiting for things to quiet down and I’ll meet with the doctor next week. I told (university president) Susan (Herbst) about it and said I could make it through the season that there were only 31⁄2 weeks left. But it’s just so bad, even getting through practice. Now I’m going to see what the next step is. The bottom line is I’m hurting.”

but to determine if Armstrong and other team members violated federal conspiracy, fraud or racketeering charges. Unlike Bonds and Clemens, who testified before a federal grand jury and Congress, respectively, and were accused of lying under oath, Armstrong was not questioned in front of the grand jury. Armstrong won the Tour de France every year from 19992005. Betsy Andreu, who with her husband and former Armstrong teammate, Frank, accused the cycling champion of doping, said she was shocked by Birotte’s decision. AP FILE PHOTO “Our legal system failed us,” she said. “This is what happens lord in the vacated apartment a when you have a lot of money and partment of Justice.” The investigation began after a cyclist who rode for Rock Racing you can buy attorneys who have people in high places in the De- cache of PEDs found by a land- and had a doping ban.

criminal conduct by members and associates of a professional bicycle racing team owned in part by Lance Armstrong.” He didn’t disclose the reason for the decision, though Birotte has used discretion in pursing high-profile criminal cases before. Last February, his office closed an investigation of mortgage giant Countrywide Financial Corp. Investigators looked at whether a doping program was established for Armstrong’s team while, at least part of the time, they received government sponsorship from the U.S. Postal Service. They also examined whether Armstrong encouraged or facilitated doping on the team. The hurdle for prosecutors wasn’t so much to prove whether any particular cyclist used drugs,

Rangers slugger Hamilton admits recent alcohol relapse The 2010 MVP was previously suspended for three years for substance abuse problems. By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Rangers outfielder and recovering drug addict Josh Hamilton said Friday that he had a relapse that started with “three or four” drinks at a Dallas-area bar this week, apologizing for a “weak moment” and insisting it will not happen again. The 30-year-old Hamilton said his actions “are mine that hurt a lot of people very close to me.” Hamilton was suspended for more than three years for drug and alcohol use while in the Tampa Bay organization. The former

No. 1 overall draft pick missed the entire 2004 and 2005 seasons, but has become one of the best players in baseball on a team that has won the last two American League pennants. He was the AL MVP in 2010. But Hamilton this week had his second known alcohol-related relapse in three years. Both came during the offseason. In January 2009, he drank to excess in a bar in Arizona. Before that, Hamilton said he had been sober since Oct. 6, 2005. Without being specific, Hamilton said his weak moment Monday night came for “personal reasons” with a family member. He said he walked to a restaurant to have dinner and ended up ordering “three or four drinks.” Hamilton said he has not taken any drugs, and had no

thoughts of doing so. He said he has been tested for drugs twice this week, part of his normal routine. He said he expects to meet soon with MLB doctors and counselors in New York for an

evaluation in his recovery. Hamilton spoke for about 12 minutes without using any prepared notes or taking any questions. Though there were no tears, he struggled with his emo-

tions at times. He closed his eyes at one point, forced a smile at another time. “My life in general is based on making the right choices, everything as far as my recovery, as far as my baseball goes, it’s all based around my relationship with the Lord,” Hamilton said. “And I look at it like that, you all know how hard I play on the field and I give it everything I absolutely have. When I don’t do that off the field, I leave myself open for a weak moment.” Hamilton can become a free agent after this season and had said he didn’t want to negotiate an extension after he reports to spring training in two weeks. “It would be nice if it was talking about a contract but we’ll put that on the back burner for a while,” Hamilton said.

PENGUINS

WRESTLING Continued from Page 1B

Delaware Valley is in the finals for the third consecutive year and will be looking for a second straight title after beating the Patriots by three points last season. “They’re very, very tough ... but Pittston proved it last year than all you have to do is get to the finals and you can make something happen,” Stahl said. “Our kids have to come out and wrestle and we’ll see what happens.” The Crusaders and Patriots went back and forth in their semifinal meet, which consisted of fans getting ejected, wrestlers taunting opposing fans and coaches, and three lead changes. After Coughlin jumped out to a 9-0 lead on wins by Billy Poray (113, fall) and Eddie Ciprich (120, decision), Pittston Area came back with five wins in the next six bouts to open what appeared to be a commanding 24-12 lead. “I felt it. My blood pressure was going up,” Stahl said about the 12point deficit. But after going down early, Coughlin went on a run of its own picking up victories in the next five matches. A huge swing was at 182 and 195 when Paul Cole and

Kevin Zaykoski scored with one second left as the Trojans defeated the Blue Knights.

The Penguins held the lead for the final five minutes and even overcame a Hershey power-play chance at the end thanks to a pair of remarkable saves by Brad Thiessen, who stopped a Cody Eakin shot in front and then Patrick McNeill on the rebound with seconds remaining. “Thiessen made some big saves toward the end. Plays like that pay huge dividends,” Williams said. “The energy that we played with in the third period proved that we wanted this game.”

ice. Suddenly the Penguins had a two-man advantage for 39 seconds and they had momentum, thanks to Craig’s fight. “A guy gets hit like that and your captain steps up and drops the gloves, it was huge to the team,” said winger Paul Thompson, who later scored the gamewinning goal. “That really got us going and made us believe that we could come back.” Twenty seconds after Craig’s fight, Jason Williams put the Penguins on the board during the two-man advantage with a laser from the top of the slot to cut Hershey’s lead to 3-1. Less than two minutes later, Brandon DeFazio ripped a wrist shot to the wide side of Holtby to make it 3-2. Robert Bortuzzo extended the rally when he scrambled into the right faceoff circle to blast home a shot that deflected off a Bears player in front and past Holtby to even things up at 3. The goal put an end to Holtby’s night when he was replaced in net by former Penguin Dany Sabourin.

FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

Penguins forward Brian Gibbons looks to gain the blue line against Hershey defenseman Patrick Wellar. Gibbons picked up a helper on Paul Thompson’s game-winning goal in the third.

All three goals were scored within the first five minutes of the period and the rally sent the home crowd into a frenzy. “It felt great,” Williams said. “That was the loudest I’ve heard this building.” Things quieted down somewhat for the next 10 minutes until Thompson connected with the game winner. The play began when Brian Gibbons and Ben Street won puck battles deep in John Olson pulled out big wins. Cole earned a major decision over Pat Nallin at 182 and Olson followed with a pin of Eric Danaher in 2:21 to give his team a 28-24 lead. Jordan Phillips secured the championship appearance for the Crusaders with a 4-0 decision over John Minich at 220. That put Coughlin ahead 31-24 with two bouts left and one consisting of unbeaten Brad Emerick at 285. Emerick moved to 30-0 this season with a fall over Chris Wesolowski, which mathematically put the score out of reach at 37-24. Pittston Area’s Jamie Scarantino closed out the dual with a major decision over Bobby Hawkins at 106. The Crusaders advanced to the semis after knocking off Scranton 45-23, while the Patriots moved on with a 32-21 victory over West Scranton. Wyoming Valley West was all over Honesdale winning 38-21 in the quarters, but the Warriors had no trouble with Hazleton Area winning 58-9. Valley West had trouble with the Delaware Valley, the 12thranked team in the state according to Premier PA Rankings, only winning one bout on a major decision from Kyle Krasavage at 126.

the Hershey end to gain possession. With the puck behind the net, Street made a backhand pass out in front to Thompson, who slammed a shot past Sabourin for the win. “It was an awesome feeling,” Thompson said of the first gamewinning goal of his career. “It was a character test for us in the third period, and I was fortunate enough to be in the right spot.”

Lake-Lehman tops Meyers in semifinal

Black Knights will face Western Wayne, which beat Dallas, in tonight’s finals. By MATTHEW SHUTT For The Times Leader

LEHMAN TWP. — After watching Dallas storm back to take a one-point lead in its match against Western Wayne, Morgan Fuller and Manny Mirailh earned back to back pins before Beau Fuller’s win by decision put the Wildcats too far ahead of Dallas and propelled the Western Wayne into the District 2 Class 2A Duals Championships. The Wildcats will meet LakeLehman in the finals after the Black Knights’ 40-30 semifinal win over Meyers. The match between the Wyoming Valley Conference’s No. 1 seed and the Lackawanna Conference’s number one seed will be held today at Pittston Area starting at 7 p.m. “It feels great to be in the finals,” said Western Wayne head coach Dante Terenzio. “Last year we had (Dallas) in the same semifinal and they came out on top. It feels good to redeem ourselves in a meet as tough as this one.” While the Wildcats raced out to a 21-9 lead after the first six matches of the meet, the Mountaineers made it clear they would not be going anywhere without a fight. Aaron Kliamovich wrestled his way to a major decision win in the 113-pound weight class and Jim Caffrey muscled a pin out of his match at 120 before Eric Young gave Dallas the lead. Down 6-4 with the seconds ticking off the clock in the third period, Young pulled out a twopoint score to force an extra period where he promptly earned another two-point takedown for an 8-6 decision and the Mountaineers only lead of the match. “At that point in the meet, we knew if we didn’t win that one that we we’re going to be in a really tough position to do anything,” Dallas coach Michael Richards said. “We always have a good match with Western Wayne, but, this year they got the better of us.” While Dallas and Western Wayne were busy battling to the end, Lake-Lehman didn’t find as much opposition in a Meyers squad that had to wait much longer than originally planned to take to the mat Friday night. Meyers, originally slated to take on the Lackawanna Conference’s No. 2 seed in Valley View, could do nothing more than try and stay loose during what was supposed to be a quarterfinal match after Valley View had to forfeit due to a medical condition within the team. “I’m not going to us it as any kind of excuse because Lake-Lehman is a good team and I thought we still wrestled tough, but, it would have been nice to get that early match in, to get those jitters out,” Meyers coach Ron Swingle said. “I think no matter what sport it is, if you have to come in and basically sit around for a while it’s not going to be good for anyone.” Sitting around or not, the time

spent waiting certainly made no difference to Mohawk standout Vito Pasone. The senior pinned Zeb McMillian with 1:36 remaining in the first period after controlling the bout from the start. The six points, however, were just not enough to get Meyers back into the match after LakeLehman had staked itself to a 30-3 lead and essentially finishing the match off with a win with technical falls from Austin Harry and Jake Winters. “It feels good to get the win, no doubt about that,” Lake-Lehman coach Tom Williams said. “We’ve still got some work to do, though, but this was one of our goals this season. “I think we can do a good job if we get some points from the guys at the bottom of the lineup and wrestle hard up at the middleweights and at the top of our lineup.” Lake-Lehman made its way into the semifinals after a 57-12 defeat of Scranton Prep, an almost identical score of Western Wayne’s 59-12 defeat of Wyoming Area in one of the night’s opening duals. Dallas advanced out of the first round with a 53-30 defeat of Lackawanna Trail.

Manning’s future still uncertain Colts owner Jim Irsay refutes report that the QB has been medically cleared to play. By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

Peyton Manning talks with students at Frederick Douglass School on Friday in Indianapolis, but his days with the Colts could be numbered as he continues to recover from multiple neck surgeries.

tions at the event. Manning’s agent, Tom Condon, told the NFL Network that the four-time league MVP would play in 2012, a point Manning made perfectly clear when he told reporters Tuesday that he did not plan to retire despite missing the entire 2011 season after having his third neck surgery in 19 months. Some Colts fans aren’t ready to let Manning leave. They may not have a choice. He will turn 36 in late March and the team that just went 2-14 must decide whether to pay him a $28 million roster bonus on March 8 or let him become a free agent. “It would be incredibly sad to

see him go and I’d hate to be Irsay. I want him to stay,” said Keith Harden, a 51-year-old Indy native who was wearing a Reggie Wayne jersey. “No, I don’t think it’s hurt his (Manning’s) image. I think he’s fighting to stay, and I like that.” Those close to Manning insist he is healthy and will be ready to play this fall. “He is sound, he can take a hit, he can certainly play in a football game,” Condon said. “How effective will he be? Probably not as effective as he would be in two to three months.” Irsay has repeatedly said the decision about Manning’s future will be based on health, not mon-

Moreover, the perfect secondhalf record put the remainder of the division, including Tunkhannock (1-2, 10-8), two games or more behind Redeemer in the standings. “They are two up on everybody with four games to play,” said Tunkhannock coach Bob Miller, whose Tigers defeated Redeemer 52-50 during the first-half season. “So that puts a lot of pressure on the rest of us to try to keep pace. Now you’re depending on everybody else to take care of stuff you wish you could have on your own.” Tunkhannock looked like it was going to take care of things Friday, at least early on.

DeRemer finished with a game-high 19 points. His five three-pointers tied his most in a conference game this season. He also had five against Dallas on Jan. 10. “It just kind of developed, kind of came to me,” DeRemer said. “I mean, there were a couple plays, but our offense is set up for everybody.” Meanwhile, Tunkhannock tried to utilize its big man – 6foot-10 James Hawk. The Tigers finally found some success in the third quarter as Hawk scored eight of his team-high 14 points. He also blocked three shots. His effort, though, was offset by a strong quarter by Redeemer reserve Shahael Wallace. Wallace scored seven points in

the quarter, but his biggest contribution came when he slapped a missed shot to teammate Will Cavanaugh. Cavanaugh passed back to Wallace for a three-pointer and a 36-26 lead at 3:11. Tunkhannock moved within 48-42 with 1:15 left in the fourth on some suddenly hot shooting from freshman Austin Yanora. The Royals, though, finished off the Tigers with four free throws. “We’re playing well now,” Redeemer coach Mark Belenski said, “but as a coach, we can always play better. We’re going with the Giant mentality – one game at a time. We have a tough road, Dallas, Crestwood, Hazleton and Berwick.”

State. Meyer treated the Penn State program like a post-Thanksgiving turkey carcass, scrounging the skeleton for any remaining shreds of protein, ultimately picking it clean of four high-profile recruits. “He’s going to be really good,” Narduzzi said of Cox. “He’s someone who can possibly make an immediate difference.” The problem with recruiting doesn’t fall exclusively at the coaches’ feet. It’s also about those 17-year-olds willingly visiting other programs after they have given their word to another. “If you were going out with

somebody and you were engaged to them,” Dantonio said, “and she’s going out with another man, would you say that she’s committed?” It’s the new rules of the Big Ten jungle. There’s nothing gentlemanly about the recruiting business now. Meyer has thrown down the gauntlet. Who cares if competitors adore or admonish him? If Dantonio wants to tangle with the big bear in Columbus, he had better be willing to fight, claw and scratch as relentlessly as Meyer will.

Linebacker Chris Doleman (56), a Hall of Fame finalist, records one of his 150.5 career sacks, this one against Warren Moon.

Finalists awaiting Hall of Fame votes Thirteen of the 17 candidates for enshrinement have earned a Super Bowl ring. By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Chris Doleman is not one of the four Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists who won a Super Bowl. He doesn’t believe that should affect his chances of being elected to the shrine. Doleman terrorized quarterbacks and running backs as a defensive end for the Vikings, Falcons and 49ers for 15 seasons. He led the NFL in sacks in 1989 with 21 on his way to 1501⁄2 sacks, fourth all-time when he retired. Unlike Charles Haley, Bill Parcells, Jerome Bettis and Ed DeBartolo Jr. among the 17 finalists who will learn today if they are voted into the hall, Doleman never got to the NFL’s biggest stage. “Yes, it can hurt me and it’s unfair, absolutely,” Doleman said. “I’d like to think the voters look at this and say, ‘Let’s take the Super Bowl out of it.’ These guys were such great players that if you placed them on that particular team, would it have won the Super Bowl? Can you take a Super Bowl player and put him on a team I played on and is he a difference maker?” Doleman is one of four defensive players known for their ability to knock down quarterbacks who made the final list. One of them, Charles Haley is the only

player to win five Super Bowls, two with the 49ers and three with Dallas. Cortez Kennedy spent his entire 11-season career with Seattle, while Kevin Greene, one of the original hybrid linebacker-ends, played for four teams in his 15 pro seasons. The other Super Bowl winners are Ed DeBartolo Jr., who owned the 49ers when they won their five titles from 1981-94; Jerome Bettis, who concluded his 13 NFL seasons in 2006 by winning the championship with the Steelers; and Bill Parcells, who coached the Giants to their 1987 and 1991 Super Bowl victories. Parcells also took the Patriots to the 1997 game they lost to Green Bay. Other finalists include Curtis Martin, the fourth-leading rusher in league history (14,101 yards), and wide receivers Cris Carter, Tim Brown and Andre Reed. Carter was second in career receptions (1,101) and touchdowns (130) when he retired after the 2002 season. Brown was third with 1,094 catches when he left the game following the 2004 season. Three powerful offensive linemen also are on the ballot: Willie Roaf, Dermontti Dawson and the other first-year nominee, Will Shields. Aenaes Williams is the only defensive back in the final 17. Senior committee nominees are Jack Butler, a Pittsburgh cornerback in the 1950s, and Dick Stanfel, an elite guard in the 1950s who won two rings with Detroit.

INDIANAPOLIS — Maybe, just maybe, the Colts and Peyton Manning are done stealing headlines during Super Bowl week. They might save the real news for later. The simmering spat between Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay bubbled up Thursday night, when Manning’s surgeon sent out a statement saying the quarterback had been cleared to play. Irsay responded on Twitter in the wee hours before dawn Friday, declaring that: “Peyton has not passed our physical nor has he been cleared to play for The Indianapolis Colts” – a terse statement that suggested Manning might have yet worn out his welcome in Indianapolis. For the second straight Friday, Irsay tried to patch things up. “Peyton Manning, Jim Irsay and the entire Colts family remain close and unified as we continue to work through all the options that relate to his future with the Colts,” the owner said in a statement that included a color photo from Irsay’s party that was taking place at about the same time as the controversy erupted. It didn’t stop Manning from visiting an inner-city school Friday. Manning did not take ques-

ey, and he has said he doesn’t want to risk exposing Manning to a long-term injury. Complicating matters is that the Colts hold the No. 1 overall draft pick and they are expected to select either Stanford’s Andrew Luck or Baylor’s Robert Griffin III as Manning’s successor. Having two high-paid quarterbacks wouldn’t just be costly, it could stifle the rookie’s growth. And Luck says he wants to play right away. Despite Irsay’s public statements, the big question is whether Manning is coming back.. The city’s most powerful celebrity and the Colts’ fun-loving owner engaged in a public spat last week when Manning complained about the dour atmosphere at the team complex following the ouster of coach Jim Caldwell and a host of assistants. Irsay responded by calling his quarterback a “politician,” then tried to mend fences with a joint statement issued a week ago. The hope was that it wouldn’t spill over into Super Bowl week. But the story only picked up steam. “Jimmy and Peyton have had a strong relationship for a really long time,” Condon said. “They’ve been great friends besides the business relationship. But this is a tough time, there is potential that you could be separated from a team he’s been a part of for a long time.”

Patriots’ Edelman already targeted by Giants wide receivers By CLIFF BRUNT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and the other Giants receivers can’t wait to go against the Patriots’ Julian Edelman in Sunday’s Super Bowl. And why not? The wide receiver-return man also plays in the secondary, a position he’s still learning. Mario Manningham, for one, says it’ll be a mismatch in New York’s favor any time he or his fellow wideouts are covered by the former Kent State quarterback. “He plays wide receiver,” Manningham said. “He’s not a real defensive back. Did he get drafted as a defensive back? We have a little bond going on knowing that we can beat somebody. We’re confident. I hope he’s out there.” Cruz, the Giants’ leading receiver with 82 catches for 1,536 yards and nine TDs, said Edelman will be targeted. “I see he’s very raw at that

SUPER BOWL

NOTEBOOK position, obviously, because it’s not his dominant position, but he’s quick, he’s fast, and he carries over a lot of the receiver stuff over to (cornerback), so we’ll see how it goes,” Cruz said. “Obviously, it’s going to be a position and an area that we’ll test out really early and see how it goes and how the game flows.” Edelman said he’ll simply focus on the task at hand. “It’s ultimately a foreign thing for me,” he said. “You’re doing everything backwards, from covering a guy to terminology on the defensive side of the ball. You have different terms. “It’s like a different language from seeing things backwards on the track so it’s definitely been a good experience for the coaches and the players surrounding me has helped me out a bunch.”

New England’s Julian Edelman stretches during practice on Friday. A receiver by trade, Edelman will likely see time in the secondary against the Giants on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI.

something, he’ll work really hard to get it right and try to do it. He developed a little bit as a defensive player this year, especially when we had some injuries.”

JACOBS’ SWAN SONG?: Brandon Jacobs is down to his last chance to show the New York Giants he’s worth keeping. When asked if he expects the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots on Sunday to be his last game with the Giants, Jacobs was unsure. “I hope not,” he said. “I want to be here. I want to be around. I just want to come out here and be able to win this football game and whatever happens, happens.” The 6-foot-4, 264-pound running back is due a $500,000 roster bonus in March. That and his scheduled $4.4 million salary for next season could cause the team to cut him, especially given his lack of production in recent years. Jacobs ran for more than 1,000 yards in 2007 and 2008, but slipped in 2009, lost his starting job to Ahmad Bradshaw in 2010 because of fumbling problems, and ran for just 571 yards and a 3.8-yard average this season. He plans to be more aggres-

Coughlin still A new look going strong for Belichick By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Coughlin’s pinched face, ever present on the New York Giants’ sideline during his eight seasons, gives way to a smile more often now. He’ll even crack a one-liner or two. Funny how a second trip to the Super Bowl in four years can mellow a guy. In reality, though, the 65-year-old Coughlin is still basically the same coach on the field, and definitely the same man off the field. Discipline, preparedness and execution are his trademarks at the office; family, church and charity work have his attention at home. “He is who is he is,” Keli Coughlin, the coach’s daughter, said in an interview Friday, two days before the Giants faced the New England Patriots for the NFL title. “I don’t know if that has ever changed. You know exactly what to expect from him and what he expects from you in return. Everybody can appreciate that or being comfortable because you know where you stand.” “Have I changed?” Coughlin asked rhetorically. “Probably, but I think it’s important as the process of learning. You learn, develop and change every year. You have to bring a fresh approach each year to your team, especially when you’ve been doing it a few years in the same place. If I’ve changed, it’s been an attempt to motivate and put us in the best possible chance that we can be.” Giants offensive coordinator Kevin

Gilbride has worked with Coughlin 10 years and laughs when asked about the “new” Tom Coughlin. “I think the thing that is his greatest strength is his consistency of his message,” Gilbride said. “He does some things a little differently, there is no question, but he has always been about what is best for the team. When you’ve got the right kind of guys they respond to it. When you’ve got guys that are not the right kind of guys, they are resentful and they feel like their personal liberties are being taken away or something. But we’ve got a group of players, and they are responding very well.” The Giants (12-7) are playing their best football heading into the Super Bowl, having won five in a row, including the last two on the road. “Warmer? Fuzzier? I don’t know if I’d use those adjectives, but he’s lightened up a lot and we made reference to that four years ago when we were here,” said guard Chris Snee, a Montrose native and the coach’s son-in-law. “How he kind of changed in that regard, getting to know players more, getting players to know the softer side of him, the side that family members see. He shows that, but then again he still has his beliefs that he sticks to. That’s what makes him more successful.” A strong devotion to his family does that, too. “There is nothing that makes him more happy than to have his family around. I know he is thrilled to be here this week with all 10 of his grandchildren,” daughter Keli said. “They all won’t be necessarily at the game, but they will be sharing in the experience, so that is special.”

He’s projecting another close win for New York on Sunday, calling it “déjà blue.” After surprising customers by giving away foot-long Subway sandwiches at a restaurant near Lucas Oil Stadium, Strahan made his prediction: 28-24 in favor of the Giants. Strahan believes New York’s pass rush is the key to victory, needing to get pressure on Tom Brady just as it did four years ago. Subway estimated it gave away 300 sandwiches.

seeable future,” Goodell said. “We want to keep our teams where they are. We believe that’s healthier for the league in the long term. We’re working to get stadiums built and make sure we do whatever we can to make sure those teams are successful in those communities.” Los Angeles, the second-largest market in the U.S., has been without an NFL team since the Rams and Raiders both left after the 1994 season. “We would like to be back in Los Angeles, if we can do it correctly,” Goodell said. “There are a lot of issues that have to be balanced there.” He announced that every club will appear on prime-time TV in 2012, thanks in part to a new slate of Thursday games that now will be scheduled from Week 2 through Week 15. NBC will air a game on Thanksgiving night; the other 12 Thursdays will go on the NFL Network, which aired eight games in 2011. “We think it’s great for the fans, for the teams — and great for the network,” Goodell said. He discussed a wide variety of issues during his 45-minute session with reporters, touching on topics such as concussions, testing players for human growth hormone, and games in England, Mexico and elsewhere. Asked about an Associated Press story this week based on interviews with a dozen former players, including Hall of Fame member Tony Dorsett, who have filed lawsuits against the league related to concussions, Goodell said: “We have done a great deal to try to address issues that are specific to our former players. We will always make sure that player health and safety is the No. 1 priority in the NFL.” “We will not quit. We are not done yet. We’re going to do what we possibly can to help our retired players, the current players and future players, by making the game safer,” Goodell said. “And we will do that with rules, we will do that by improving the equipment, and we will do it by making sure that we pioneer research that’s going to make sure we understand all there is about brain injuries, brain disease, and make sure we’re being responsible leaders.” Asked about a report that the language in player contracts might be changed to prohibit suing the league, Goodell replied: “In certain cases, a club and a player may have individual negotiations, but there is no leaguewide effort to do that.” He pointed out this season’s new kickoff rules meant to improve safety, saying injuries were down, particularly concussions. Noting one possible change for next season, Goodell said the league likely will increase its use of replays to help team doctors assess possible injuries by putting TVs on every sideline. “We’re not going to relent on safety,” he said, noting that it’s important that “the medical decisions are always overriding competitive decisions.”

Micron CEO dies in crash

The head of Idaho memory chip maker Micron died Friday morning when the small experimental plane he was piloting crashed at the Boise airport. Steve Appleton, 51, was the chief executive and chairman of Micron and a professional Appleton stunt pilot who escaped a similar plane crash in 2004 with serious injuries. Micron spokesman Dan Francisco confirmed Steve Appleton’s death, and trading in Micron stocks was halted.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Bob Casey is planning to introduce a bill encouraging the use of vehicles powered by natural gas and other alternative fuels. The bill, titled the Natural Gas Energy and Alternative Rewards Act, would extend tax credits for the retail sale of natural gas and other alternative fuels for use in powering vehicles and for installing commercial alternative-fuel refilling stations. It would also offer a 30 percent rebate of up to $15,000 for the purchase of school and transit buses

some extent right now,” Casey said. Calling it a “common-sense approach to energy,” Casey said he thinks the bill should garner bipartisan support because Democrats and Republicans alike favor reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil. “It allows us to be in control of our energy future,” Casey said, “and I don’t care what party you’re in, that’s what the American people want.” Casey said switching fleet vehicles like buses to gas could save money through lower fuel costs, but the price of converting vehicles to run on natural

powered by alternative fuels. The incentives would be available through 2016. Though other liquefied gases, hydrogen and fuel-cell vehicles and infrastructure also would qualify for the rebates and credits, Casey, D-Scranton, said that in Pennsylvania the bill would support the development of infrastructure based on the Marcellus Shale natural gas being extracted in the state. “It helps put Americans back in the driver’s seat, so we can control our energy future instead of putting it in the hands of foreign countries, as it is to

gas is sometimes cost prohibitive. And though conversions for personal vehicles would not be subsidized by the bill, consumers who drive natural gaspowered vehicles would benefit from the extension of the $0.50 per gallon tax credit for natural gas fuel. Casey said he hopes the bill will be a stepping stone in developing natural gas-fuel infrastructure in Pennsylvania. Casey said he will soon be seeking cosponsors for the bill, and plans to introduce it on the Senate floor in a matter of days.

REDNER’S SIGN REMOVED AT MARK PLAZA

A four-year blueprint for aviation programs that hastens the transition to a new air traffic control system based on GPS technology was given final approval by the House on Friday. Final Senate action is expected Monday, culminating a five-year struggle that included a partial shutdown of the FAA last summer. Lawmakers said the legislation will provide certainty and stability to programs that are critical to the health of the commercial aviation industry, which accounts for about 5 percent of U.S. economic output.

Dow hits best mark since ’08 By MATTHEW CRAFT AP Business Writer

Witness: Books cooked

Jailed Texas financier R. Allen Stanford helped fake profit numbers for his Caribbean bank and funnel millions of dollars of depositor funds to a secret Swiss bank account used to pay for personal expenses, bribes to regulators and employee bonuses, the man who was in charge of the tycoon’s books told jurors Friday. James M. Davis, the former chief financial officer for Stanford’s companies, testified the financier’s bank never reported having an unprofitable year because he and Stanford worked together to fabricate figures for annual reports and other documents.

Man eyes new bid for Philly papers By MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Business mogul Raymond Perelman is mulling another bid for Philadelphia’s two largest newspapers, more than a year after creditors outbid him at a bankruptcy auction. Perelman bid $129 million, mostly cash, for The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com at the September 2010 auction. Earlier this week, the New York Post reported that Philadelphia Media Network was again in play because two hedge funds want to sell their stakes. The 94-year-old Perelman said Friday that he’s looking at the situation but con-

newspaper reported that Evercore Partners, a New York investment bank, has been hired to handle the sale. Evercore, through an external spokeswoman, declined to comment Friday. Philadelphia Media Network officials aren’t commenting on the reported sale, spokesman Mark Block said Friday. The creditors paid $139 million for the company after forcing the sale when local investors who paid $515 million for the company in 2006 missed debt payments in early 2009. The creditors have since sold the iconic newspaper building and plan to move staff to a much smaller space in a long-vacant department store this year.

The Post reported earlier this week that Alden Global Capital hoped to sell the company for $100 million and cash out its 30 percent stake.

NEW YORK — A drop in the unemployment rate to its lowest in three years propelled the Dow Jones industrial average Friday to its highest close since before the 2008 financial crisis. The Nasdaq composite index hit an 11-year high. Before the market opened, the Labor Department said the economy added 243,000 jobs in January. It was the strongest job growth in nine months. The increase in hiringpushedtheunemploymentrate down to 8.3 percent, the lowest since February 2009. The price of ultra-safe Treasury notes dropped, sending yields higher, and the price of oil rose for the first time in a week. “In this economy, only one variablemattersrightnow,andthatvariable is employment,” said Lawrence Creatura, an equity portfolio manager at Federated Investors. “This report was great news. It was beyond all expectations, literally. The number was higher than even the highest forecast.” The S&P 500 surged 2.2 percent for the week, its fifth straight week of gains. Moreevidencethattheeconomy is gaining strength followed the jobs report. A trade group said the service industry expanded at the fastest pace since last February. The government also said factory orders rose 1.1 percent in December, supported by a rebound in orders for heavy machinery. Bank of America led the 30 stocks in the Dow, rising 5.2 percent. Only two stocks fell: Merck and Procter & Gamble. NATURAL GAS $2.50

So far, this winter is ranked as one of the warmest and least snowiest winters on record. In fact, climatologists say that it ranks in the top 20 warmest on record. Since November 1, here in the valley, there has been only 5.7 inches of snow and for at least the next six days, I see us with little or no chance of a measurable snowfall. A storm will graze southern Pa. this weekend with a little snow, but for our area only cloudiness. Northerly winds Sunday will promote more sunshine and then there will be clear, moonlit skies Sunday evening. And that's when the fun really begins, capped off with a Giants victory. -Tom Clark

SANDRA SNYDER WALL TO WALL

Say, brother, can you dice a dog for me?

T

By LISA ABRAHAM

Akron Beacon Journal

s your post-holiday kitchen decorated with a trail of cookie crumbs and broken candy canes? • Is your refrigerator filled with the aging remains of New Year’s Eve party food, molding cheese and ham well into its second

curing? • You aren’t alone in your mess. With cooking, baking and entertain-

ing, our kitchens tend to take a beating over the holidays. • But just like taking down the Christmas tree, making an annual ritual of organizing the kitchen is a good winter resolution. Tallmadge, Ohio, resident Marcia Cianchetti pointed to her kitchen table covered with the remains of the holidays — containers of candied cherries for fruitcakes she never baked, a bread machine her daughter dragged out of storage to take back with her to college, a food-filled basket her husband received as a Christmas gift, an empty tin from cookies a neighbor sent over, newspapers, dishes, presents and more. Because her family eats in the dining room, the kitchen table and its nook off the back of the room have become a quasi-storage area and dumping ground for her family’s stuff. “Honestly, I just have too much stuff. Thirty-one years ago, I had half the cupboard space I have now, and I had plenty of room. Now, I have twice the space, and I still don’t have room for everything,” she said. The 58-year-old retired baker said the holidays are particularly challenging because of all of the new items that came into the house as gifts, and because her youngest daughter was home from college and she wanted to make sure the refrigerator was well-stocked with her favorites. Now the amount of food left over was making Cianchetti nervous. Professional organizer Jamie Escola, of Calm and Collected Organizing of Canton, Ohio, said Cianchetti’s situation is typical. “It’s human nature. If we have the space; we will fill it up,” she said.

Escola gave a walk-through of Cianchetti’s kitchen to offer tips on how to get a kitchen organized and keep it that way. She likes to practice a technique known as SPACE, created by organizer Julie Morgenstern: S — Sort through your stuff. P — Purge anything that is expired, broken or unused. A — Assign everything a home. C — Containerize your items. E — Equalize your space. In Cianchetti’s case, her kitchen offers ample storage: two large pantry cupboards (one for food, one for equipment) and generous number cupboards for dishes, glasses and other items. All are filled. Begin by sorting and purging, Escola said. For food in the pantry, refrigerator and freezer, get rid of expired packages, stale items or food that you know won’t be eaten. Particularly at the holidays, when food gifts are common, we tend to end up with food that we may not actually use. If you know a bottle of exotic vinegar is not something See CLUTTER, Page 2C

hat. Is. The. Height! She enunciated the four words, wielding a hairbrush as she made her point about laziness. She’s a tad gun-shy when it comes to forums like this, so I can’t really say who she is, but “hairbrush” is a clue, and she might have been holding scissors, too. Your other clue is this is a woman who, in her profession, really does hear it all, so she’s bound to have opinions. This particular one applied to a woman in her life, to whom she’s close enough to have seen the inside of her fridge, who had, it seems, chosen to buy pre-sliced apples. If you can imagine. Yes, at least one woman is alive today who’d prefer to pay a premium rather than deal with a peeler or paring knife, followed by an all-purpose cutting implement. That’s at least two tools, after all, and maybe she doesn’t have room in her kitchen? Hee hee. Ha ha. My heart went out to the mystery woman as I made my own revelation to the lady with the hair tools: “Don’t judge me, but sometimes I buy frozen onions.” Not that I don’t love even the very look of a silk-skinned Vidalia in prime season or the heady bouquet of a pretty purple-red. I just have yet to chop an onion without weeping operatically. After explaining this, I learned that a certain device on the market today not only makes swift, clean work of onions, but Johnson & Johnson might want to consider an acquisition, so strong is the pull of no more tears. But sigh. Another device? “Why do you think I don’t own ‘onion goggles?’ ” I lamented. Because I mean to clear out, not clog up, shelves and drawers, and yet another kitchen contraption, handy dandy or not, is not conducive. After all, you might remember, I’ve been the recent voluntary subject of an intervention, and I’m still in observation and recovery. Today, I’m supposed to invite you all to inventory. Ready? Raise your hand if you have: • Speaking of apples (ahem), an apple corer-peeler-slicer. Six points. Six more if yours is engraved with “Pampered Chef.” That puts you 12 points on your way to 100 (which is where you qualify to join me in intervention). But I’m not judging you. I like parties, too. And shopping. And I don’t hate shopping parties, at which we all know you have to buy something. Which is half the reason I’ve ended up with: • Not one but two plunger-in-themiddle plastic pitchers perfect for frozen orange juice, except I generally don’t buy frozen orange juice, so I’m ashamed to say I use these mostly for iced-tea mix, when I even buy iced-tea mix, which isn’t often because of all the fancy Turkey Hill gallon specials. Twenty points for each such pitcher in your possession. • A potato masher and a garlic press, neither of which I ever touch. Stand mixers handle spuds, too, you know, and I have yet to meet a clove of garlic that refuses to “press” under the mere weight of the back of a spoon. Twenty points for each of these you can wave. Are you at 92 with me yet? Want eight more? One point for each cutting board, pot glove, spaghetti fork, spatula, slotted spoon and, heck, souvenir shot glass you can produce. And one more for each Champagne flute, brandy snifter and martini glass, all space-hoggers plenty of us can but don’t live without. You should be well past 100 now, right? Whose fault is this? Can’t answer that, but I will say maybe the overstimulated lot of us just need to take a step back and laugh, at our whole world. I recently got a pitch to promote the purchase of something called “The Dog Dicer.” (Seriously. Google it.) Tell you what. If you can muster the strength to part with 50 or more kitchen implements you don’t need, I’ll buy you this little tool that will swiftly and safely cut up your hot dog for you. Yes, I’m serious. That’s what it does. Think I’ll pass for now. (Not feeling well anyway.) If you know of a tool that will butter my soup crackers for me (without breaking them), shout it out. I have just the spot waiting. Right where the garlic press used to live. Reach Sandra Snyder, the editor of At Home, at 831-7383 or ssnyder@timesleader.com.

you will open, don’t be afraid to donate it to a food pantry or give it to a friend who will. Otherwise, it will probably get shoved to the back of the cupboard, where it will be forgotten until it expires and eventually is thrown out anyway. Escola advised Cianchetti to edit out about 25 percent of what was in her pantries. For cookware, that means eliminating items she doesn’t use. For seldom-used items, such as holiday platters, Escola recommended storing them in the basement or off site, where they aren’t taking up space the whole year. “Make sure the things in the kitchen are things you are using at least once or twice a week,” she said.

Shopping strategies Before going grocery shopping, Escola said, “Shop your pantry first.” If you have three bags of rice, then plan some meals using rice to help pare it down. Knowing you have three bags at home also should stop you from bringing home a fourth. Now that you have a plan, starting can be the hardest part. “I was thinking, if I just did an hour a day, then maybe I would get into it and maybe that would turn into two hours and I might actually get somewhere,” Cianchetti said. Escola recommends starting with all flat surfaces first — counters, islands and tabletops. Eliminating visual clutter will transform the kitchen’s appearance and give you space to work. Countertops are a constant trouble spot but also indicate what a kitchen is lacking. If your counter is cluttered with keys, mail, sunglasses and everyone’s cell-phone charger, it’s probably because there isn’t an assigned spot for those items. Coggins said one of the best ways to deal with maintenance is to make it a part of your routine. “At the end of the day, make sure things are cleared off kitchen counters,” she said.

Q&A Q: A few years ago, I bought sheer off-white drapes for my family room. I had a stripe of dark red grosgrain ribbon sewn on the inner edge of each panel to tie in with the colors in the room. When the drapes were delivered, the woman said, “By the way, you can never wash these, or the red dye from the ribbon will run.”

How do I clean these drapes? Also, what is the best way to vacuum sheer drapes? A: Harry Kimmel of the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute said your draperies may be drycleanable. He said a professional dry cleaner can test for colorfastness before attempting to clean them. To vacuum the drapes, try using a brush attachment. Or, if your vacuum cleaner has suction control, you can turn it to its lowest setting and use an upholstery

Decisions, decisions But deciding what to keep and what to get rid of can be difficult. Escola said saving items such as baskets or tins isn’t always a bad idea, because it does cost to replace them, and most of us may need one now and again. But you can’t realistically save them all. She suggested keeping a small number in the basement. “That way, you’ll have one on hand if you want to make a gift basket for someone else,” she said. When it comes to storing off site in the basement or garage, Escola said, again it’s important to set a limit, lest you fill up the basement. Assign three basement shelves for kitchen overflow. When that space is filled, it’s time to purge again, she said. Sometimes, Escola said, you just have to give yourself permission to get rid of things, and donating is always a good option. “Ask yourself, ‘Is it something I really need or that adds to the enjoyment of my kitchen?’ If it does, you need to create a home for it. It’s basically about weighing the positives and the negatives and about letting go. ... If it does not have a purposeful and obvious home, those things are going to become clutter,” Escola said. Assigning everything a home is the next step and is crucial to getting and staying organized. If you always put coupons and re-

ceipts in the same place, then you’ll always know where to look for them, Escola said. The space doesn’t have to be perfectly organized. It can be just a box, basket or drawer. But as long as you use it for paper and only paper, you’ll always know where to find items and you’ll avoid paper clutter. The time to buy plastic bins, containers and other organizers is after you have given everything a home, so that you will buy the right container for the job. “Resist the temptation to go out and purchase new containers, products and organizing tools, because then you have to organize around them. Take stock of what you have first,” Escola said. She is a big fan of baskets or plastic bins for holding like items — bags of nuts, baking morsels and such. They keep supplies together and can be pulled in and out, creating drawers on shelves. The final step, equalizing, is about maintaining the new order. Eliminating the multiples is a great way to create space and will help to stop food waste, too.

Preventing TV tipovers Advocates call for the use of straps to prevent child deaths and injuries By DUAA ELDEIB

Chicago Tribune

C

HICAGO — When parents buy a new TV they’re unlikely to find in the box a simple tool that could save their child’s life — safety straps or anchors to keep the television from tipping over — because manufacturers aren’t required to include them. And parents who look to buy the straps after the fact may have to hunt them down, because a number of stores that sell TVs don’t offer the straps.

Safety experts are calling for the inclusion of such devices in light of disquieting statistics: More children were killed in accidents involving falling TVs between 2000 and 2010 than by all other unstable furniture or appliances combined, according to a September 2011 report released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Not included in those figures are two Chicago-area children killed recently when TVs came crashing down on them. The most recent — a 3-year-old Chicago girl who had been playing with her brother and cousin when a TV tipped over — died Nov. 8, 2011. On Oct. 30, a TV fell on an Arlington Heights boy, 6, who police believe had been reaching for something on top of the screen. They found a juice box on the floor near his body. “It’s a very serious problem that is not going away,” said Scott Wolfson, spokesman for the Consumer Product Safety Commission. “These are young children taken too soon.” Nearly 70 percent of fatal tipovers between 2000 and 2010 involved TVs, accounting for the deaths of 169 children, the commission reports. TVs also are the chief culprit in tipover-related emergency room visits, with an annual average of 13,700 injuries, the report states. The responsibility is a joint one, shared by parents, the safety commission and those who make and sell TVs, Wolfson said. “We want the industry to get engaged in this process,” he said. “We want companies to be as active as we are. If the manufacturer doesn’t provide (straps), we want the retailers to sell (them) and to do so in a prominent place that’s easily accessible to parents.” Northbrook, Ill.-based Underwriters Laboratories, which tests the majority of TVs on the market, sets voluntary safety standards for TVs and stands. Raising awareness on the perils of falling TVs has been a priority, said UL’s consumer safety director, John Drengenberg. Among the UL’s current safety standards — last revised in 2004 — is that a TV can withstand a 10-degree tilt and a force of 20 pounds or 20 percent of its weight without tipping over.

Some safety advocates, researchers and parents say that’s not enough. They want consumers to be able to leave a store with safety straps in hand when they buy a new TV. Some advocates also have urged modifications in TV designs to make them more tip-over resistant and a warning label informing consumers of the tip-over risk. “I don’t even want to speculate what the mortality rates would be if the UL standards weren’t there,” said Drengenberg, noting that often the problem comes when a TV is placed on furniture that’s rickety or otherwise not intended to hold a large appliance. Even if UL required companies to include safety straps, there’s nothing to ensure consumers will use them, Drengenberg added. But Rachel Weintraub, director of product safety and senior counsel for the Consumer Federation of America, a coalition of nonprofit consumer groups, said she believes more parents would use safety straps if they were readily available. “I think if consumers know that it could potentially save the life of someone in their homes, I think they’re going to be more likely to do it,” she said. Sylvia Santiago wishes she had known about the straps in 2008, when her 2-year-old daughter was killed by a falling TV. Like many parents, Santiago was alerted by a loud crash and rushed to her child. It was early on a July morning, and the last thing her daughter said the night before, Santiago recalled, was, “Mommy, I love you. I’m going

Mother uses illness to compete with girl for teenage son’s attention Dear Abby: I’m 18 and my boyfriend, “Jordan,” is 17. We have been together a year and a half. There is only one problem — his mother. “Martha” has lupus and uses it to manipulate Jordan. When we plan dates, she’ll tell him she feels sick and make him stay home to take care of her. As soon as the date is canceled, she’s miraculously better. She complains that he doesn’t spend enough time with her and lays guilt on him, but only when I’m around. I don’t believe that my boyfriend deserves the stress, but I’m not sure what to do about it. Can you help me? — Stressed Teens in the South

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Stressed Teens: There is nothing you can do about it, so accept that his mother is part of the package deal. In another year your boyfriend will be legally an adult and able to decide if he wants to stay at home taking care of his mother, or leave to pursue his education or go to work. From your description, the family dynamics do not appear to be healthy. But if you’re smart, you will not involve yourself in them. A girl who competes with her boyfriend’s mother rarely wins that battle, so remember that.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I’m 14 and a ballet dancer, although I just started dancing seriously at 12. I have been in some shows and my teacher has started me on pointe work. It has become my dream to dance professionally. When I confided it to my mother, she told me it would be impossible. Should I continue with my dream or pursue something else? I know it’s a tough profession to work in, but it is what I love. — Dancing For Joy in San Diego Dear Dancing For Joy: A career in dance requires strength, determination, discipline and sacrifice. These are all traits that will serve you well regardless of what profession you decide to pursue when you’re older. The person you should ask this question

CRYPTOQUOTE

of is your ballet teacher, who is better able to evaluate your talent than I can at a distance. But I urge you to stick with dance as long as it interests you. Even if you don’t eventually become a performer, you could become a choreographer, a teacher or find a rewarding career in some other capacity with a dance company. Now is not the time to give up on this dream. Dear Abby: My fiance is an amazing man, but because he’s in the military I don’t see him very often. I recently met a guy in one of my college classes who has made it clear that he’s attracted to me. I can’t help but feel the same about him. He often asks me to study and hang

out with him. Am I being disloyal if I innocently study or hang out with this guy without telling my fiance? — Friendly Fiancee in Colorado Dear Fiancee: You say the attraction between you and your classmate is mutual. If you start hanging out with him without telling your fiance, then the relationship ISN’T innocent. If you can’t handle the separations, then you don’t have what it takes to be a military wife. So do both of you a favor and end the engagement. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Find your people and act in concert. What happens when your values are aligned with the values of a larger group will be so impressive you might even call it magical. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take extreme caution when communicating on the Internet. You’ll notice how the rants of your friends and family seem a tad crazy from the objective light of an online message board. Resolve not to make the same mistake. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your career goals, while not entirely realistic by most standards, are still in the realm of possibility, as evidenced by the many others who have reached similar goals. Keep going! CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are committed to pursuing your interests now, especially the more entrepreneurial ones. Every task you are assigned will lead to deeper understanding. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The demands of tomorrow seem to be tapping at your window begging to be addressed, while the pleasures of today move you to draw the curtains. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Moments cannot be accurately measured in increments of time anymore than dreams can be measured in increments of weight. Both happen out of time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You cannot spend your time defending your choices. In order to finish your work, you’ll have to master the fine art of ignoring people.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you think something, doesn’t mean it’s your true opinion. It’s always a good idea to put ideas to the test before adopting them as your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s much to do, and you’re in the mood to get straight to the point. You have a way of stating things that makes your listener understand immediately what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A friendly mood prevails, though you may have to be the one to break the ice. Once you reach out, you find that you have more in common with people than you would have guessed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Make a list, and put it in order of importance. The second part will be your key to happiness. When you make sure to do what means the most to you, it won’t matter if you don’t get to everything. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your goals are best kept to yourself and the people who are directly involved in their completion. If you tell everyone else, you risk being encouraged ad nauseam. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 4). Your birthday starts a trend of financial improvement. You may be tender with those you love, but they still know that you’re a powerful force in the world. The theme permeates your year. The kindness you show working with others will attract new friends and business opportunities in March. April and July bring travel. Leo and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 1, 24 and 17.

A Mini with Maxi Traction and Passenger Room MCC still has room for 16.5 cubic feet of groceries, luggage, or whatever other junk you need to transport. Folding the rear seatbacks greatly increases the Countryman’s cargo capacity and versatility. I was very surprised to discover that folding just one of its rear seatbacks enabled the MCC to swallow a full-size hockey goalie gear bag. To put that into perspective, the only carrier larger than a hockey goalie bag is a steamer trunk designed for two-week ocean cruises. Mini mavens who live in places where hockey is popular will appreciate the availability of ALL4 on the Countryman. ALL4 is a fulltime all-wheel drive system that sends all of the Mini’s power to the front wheels until those wheels start to slip. At that point, it automatically and seamlessly diverts up to 50 percent to the rear wheels. The system worked well enough on the MCC test car to enable it to track through a snowstorm that prompted Maine Turnpike officials to lower speeds to 45 mph. It also had no trouble bursting through the snowplow berm at the end of my driveway or dealing with the 8 inches of white stuff that filled it. But I wouldn’t have felt comfortable driving the test car on public roads covered with that much snow. With a maximum 6.2 inches of ground clearance and optional low-profile, high-performance 18inch tires and wheels, the MCC’s AWD system is clearly intended to provide additional traction, not turn the Mini into a diminutive Hummer.

SCOTT WASSER WHEELS

Introduced in 1959 by the British Motor Corporation and sold for more than four decades, the original two-door Mini hatchback is one of the most iconic vehicles the world has ever known. But did you know that the Mini was made in multiple body styles… including a pickup that was sold for over 20 years? BMW, the current owner and producer of the Mini brand, hasn’t announced a pickup yet, but give it time. At least one new Mini model seems to arrive every year, the manufacturer apparently determined to eventually offer as many many “flavors” as Baskin-Robbins. A quick look at miniusa.com reveals at least six distinct current models, each offered in various configurations. Five of the models are available with high-performance John Cooper Works treatment, which Mini treats collectively as a seventh model. When a visitor opts to “build” his or her own Mini, the website whimsically suggests there are 10 million possible combinations. No doubt. I recently tested one of the newest and most distinctive Mini models, the Countryman. Debuting as a 2011 model, this is the first BMW-produced Mini with four doors. It also is the first available with all-wheel drive, which Mini calls “ALL4.” The test car was a top-of-the-line “S” model, making its official

moniker “Mini Cooper S Countryman All4.” That means one of the smallest four-doors on the planet has one of the longest names ever bestowed on a vehicle. I seriously considered asking my editors to run this review in a wide-column format so the vehicle’s name would fit on one line. Fortunately, I found the Mini Cooper S Countryman ALL4 –

which I’m nicknaming MCC to avoid carpel tunnel syndrome while writing this column – as long on appeal as it is in nomenclature. The Mini has always been both a special vehicle and a specialty vehicle. Its nimbleness, go-kart handling and spunky engine make it a treat to drive. But its two doors and limited capacity also make it a treat in which only a relatively small percentage of car owners can

indulge. The four-door Countryman makes the Mini’s pleasures available to a much wider audience. For one thing, there is enough room behind the front seats for a couple of adults to ride comfortably. Getting in and out of the rear buckets is relatively easy, thanks to surprisingly wide and tall full-size door openings. With all of its seats occupied, the

MINI, From Page 1 SCOTT WASSER is The Times Leader’s Automotive Columnist. His column appears on Saturdays.

Possessing a nimbleness, quickness and agility that is rare in automobiles, the Mini’s personality is about as far from “Hummeresque” as you can get. Folks who enjoy driving enjoy driving conventional Minis because they are engaging, responsive and rewarding. The same is true of the new Countryman ALL4, at least in “S” trim. Its peppy engine provides quick takeoffs, its robust brakes provide secure landings, and its sport-tuned suspension slithers through turns like a snake. The extra ground clearance and weight associated with ALL4 doesn’t seem to adversely affect those qualities. But the sport suspension and tires also result in a harsh ride that isn’t for everyone. The same is true for the Mini’s switchgear, which sometimes requires access to the owner’s manual to figure out how to do something that should be intuitive. Mini fans will consider those things endearing personality traits rather than character flaws. Given how much I enjoyed driving the latest and most practical Mini made, I obviously qualify as a fan.

Countryman is available in three trim levels with starting prices ranging from $22,450 to $27,750 for one like our test vehicle. Options added up to an MSRP of $34,150.
