Social Security tax cut, jobless benefits, uncut Medicare payments to doctors part of deal. By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Americans are getting an election-year tax present. Congress voted with rare speed and cooperation Friday to extend a Social Security payroll tax cut for160 million workers and to renew unemployment benefits for millions more who haven’t seen a paycheck in six months. With lawmakers’ ratings in the gutter, the legislation sped through both the House and Senate Obama and was on its way to President Barack Obama, who saluted the quick passage. Taxpayers have grown accustomed to the 2 percentage point cut in the payroll tax over the past year — around $80 a month for someone earning $50,000 a year — and it now will be continued. So will jobless benefits averaging about $300 a week for the long-term unemployed. See BILL, Page 12A

Gary LeVox, lead singer of the country music trio Rascal Flatts walk along the stage singing to his fans on Friday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Trio turns up the heat Rascal Flatts moves its act indoors for an appreciative country music audience. R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – Even though the winter has been mostly on the mild side, Rascal Flatts brought its “Thaw Out 2012 Tour” to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza on Friday night to warm up a sold-out crowd of country music lovers. The popular trio of Gary LeVox (lead vocals), Jay DeMarcus (bass guitar, piano, vocals) and Joe Don Rooney (lead guitar, vocals) brought its bucketful of fun-loving ditties and soaring ballads to the arena in its first area appearance in more than a year and a half. Even though its show is more suited for the outdoor amphitheaters it usually headlines, Rascal Flatts did a nice job of making it work indoors. The crowd erupted as the trio took the stage from three separate doorways, which appeared from behind the giant video screen. As an enormous glacier cracked and thawed out on screen, LeVox, DeMarcus and Rooney each ran to a set of drums and stormed into opening number “Why Wait.” Other early highlights included knockout versions of “Summer Nights” and “Bless the Broken Road,” which was nicely stretched out with LeVox doing some impassioned testifying.

First Keystone Community Bank buys Hasay Chevrolet site to build a new branch

Shickshinny getting new bank By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

First Keystone Community Bank will open a new branch in Shickshinny, which has been without a full-service bank since September’s flooding. The flood inundated and caused structural damage to the town’s 100year-old downtown bank building, then home to a Wells Fargo branch. Wells Fargo announced it would not reopen the branch because engineers discovered structural damage caused by multiple floods but said it would maintain an ADA-compliant ATM at the site. The decision prompted protest from community leaders and residents, who

urged Wells Fargo to reopen or donate the building to the community in lieu of tearing it down. Kevin Miller, chief operating officer for the Berwick-based First Keystone Community Bank, said Friday the bank has reached an agreement to purchase the former Hasay Chevrolet auto dealership near the Shickshinny-Mocanaqua Bridge and will build a full-service branch there with tellers, a loan department and a drive-through ATM. “We have seen firsthand how the flooding of 2011 has impacted Shickshinny. We understand the great commitment it will take for that community to completely rebuild, and we are committed to being a successful part of that

People protest outside the former Wells Fargo Bank in Shickshinny last year after the bank announced that it was going to demolish the flood-damaged building.

Court halts pipeline work

A federal circuit court has issued a temporary stop-work order for a pipeline under construction in Bradford, Sullivan and Lycoming counties. The federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay Friday, stopping all work on Inergy Midstream, L.P.’s MARC I pipeline project, including tree clearing and compressor station construction, while a three-judge panel reconsiders the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s approval of the project. The order came in response to a lawsuit filed by environmental advocacy group Earthjustice, which sought to block construction over concerns that the pipeline would fragment undeveloped land and cross high-quality streams, risking pollution. Work on the 39-mile pipeline began this month. PLYMOUTH

WILKES-BARRE – The melodic strains of the great American standard “Chances Are” filled the main hall at ArtsYOUniverse on Friday evening as the group hosted a special musical presentation titled “See What I Hear. Hear What I See” to benefit the Luzerne County Council of the Blind. The show was organized by Luzerne County Community College students Justin Jon Nepenthe and Trisha Tyson and featured a lineup of blind performers from throughout the state. Nepenthe said he was inspired to create the benefit by his grandmother, Dorothy Ostrowski, president of the Luzerne County Council of the

Blind, who regaled him with stories of the many “amazing” blind performers in the area. Nepenthe said many multitalented blind performers gather each summer at the Lions Club’s Beacon Lodge Camp in Central Pennsylvania to entertain the campers and share their considerable gifts. “I was so inspired by her stories of these unbelievable performers that I couldn’t think of a better way to hon-

or her and raise money for this cause,” said Nepenthe, who plans to pursue a career in public relations after college. Featured on the evening’s bill were Carol Kozak, a pianist from WilkesBarre; Vivian Williams, a soprano from Philadelphia, and Sue Showers, a standards singer from the Williamsport area.

The incident prompted numerous comments from parents, one of whom spoke at the school board’s Feb. 8 meeting, questioning whether enough had been done. At the time, Namey stressed the district followed the advice of the professional exterminator. There was no school Friday because it was a teacher in-service day. Namey said letters have been sent home to all parents explaining the situation at GAR and what the district is doing about it.

Woman charged in hit-and-run gets bail revoked for testing positive for drugs Karen McCann was taken to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury last week warned a woman charged in a fatal hitand-run that if she tested positive for drugs or alcohol, he would revoke her bail. On Thursday, Karen McCann tested positive for cocaine. On Friday, her bail was revoked and she was taken to the Luzerne County

Correctional Facility. “We gave her an opportunity. She has failed it,” Amesbury said, reinstating McCann’s $50,000 straight bail. McCann, 33, is McCann charged in the June 2011 accident that killed 64-year-old Aloysius McLaughlin. Police said McCann was driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer that struck and killed McLaughlin, who was working as a landscaper in front of a home at 173 Third Ave. in Kingston at the time. Prosecutors say McCann had cocaine and prescription medications in

her system at the time of the incident. Last week, Amesbury agreed to allow McCann to participate in the county’s Day Reporting Center until the time of her July trial on homicide by motor vehicle and other related charges. While in the program, McCann would report to the center six days a week, receive assistance in obtaining a job, participate in rehabilitation and be tested routinely for drugs and alcohol. McCann’s attorney, Pete Moses, said he and his client did not contest the violation, but that a drug and alcohol evaluation was never done at the reporting center, and that counseling had not yet started for McCann.

Moses suggested his client be able to participate in rehabilitation at an inpatient facility, but Amesbury said it is too early in the case for him to consider that request. Amesbury said Moses should have evaluations put in place to determine if McCann has an addiction or an emotional disorder. “The court will not grant anything without a proper evaluation,” Amesbury said. The next step, Amesbury said, would for be for Moses to then file a request to reduce McCann’s bail amount to see if it can be posted to have her released from prison to possibly take part in inpatient care.

U.S. condemns actions; Britain and France pledge to engage opposition

Activists: Neighborhoods shelled

BEIRUT — Syrian troops intensively shelled rebel-held neighborhoods in the restive central city of Homs on Friday and killed at least 13 people, activists said. Britain and France urged the opposition to unite and said it needs more international support to resist the deadly government crackdown. Activist groups said tens of thousands of protesters poured into the streets after Friday prayers from Daraa in the south to Aleppo and Idlib in the north and Deir el-Zour in the east to

areas around the capital Damascus. The Local Coordination Committees said security forces opened fire on some protests. In Washington, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton condemned the violence and demanded that Assad step aside. In Paris, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that “what is happening in Syria is appalling.” “I’m not satisfied that we are taking all the action we can,” he said at a joint next conference

with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The two leaders spoke a day after the U.N. General Assembly condemned human rights violations by President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian regime. In a joint statement, Cameron and Sarkozy pledged that their countries “will continue to increase their engagement with the Syrian opposition, including encouraging the opposition to work together and to support the vision of an incluAP PHOTO sive, prosperous and free Sy- People hold a poster showing Syrian President al-Assad durria.” ing a protest in front of the Syrian embassy in Cairo on Friday.

The officials say Kozak is in stable condition, recovering from six gunshot wounds. He is described as alert and talking. Officials say Garcia was fatally shot by a third agent who intervened.

Obama pushes U.S. exports

President Barack Obama on Friday called for more steps to help U.S. companies compete overseas, standing in front of an enormous Boeing Dreamliner to summon a bright future for American manufacturing and exports. Visiting a Boeing Obama plant in Washington state where he watched some of the massive 787s under assembly, Obama pushed for Congress to continue financing a national export credit agency crucial to a goal of doubling exports by 2014. He pointed to the aviation giant as a homegrown company bolstering the U.S. economy by doing business overseas as he sought to make the case that the nation’s economy is on the rise. Obama’s visit was highly orchestrated to portray the strength of American manufacturing. CAIRO

Glenn’s Friendship 7 capsule circled Earth three times on Feb. 20, 1962. Carpenter followed aboard Aurora 7 on May 24,1962. It was Carpenter who called out “Godspeed John Glenn” moments before Glenn’s launch. They were the third and fourth Americans to rocket into space. Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom flew short suborbital missions in1961, the same year the Soviet Union launched two cosmonauts into orbit on separate shots. The Cold War was raging, and America was desperate to even the score. Glenn could have died trying if the heat shield on his capsule was loose as flight controllers feared. But the protective shield was tight, and Glenn splashed down safely.

BRUSSELS — An international banking clearinghouse crucial to Iran’s oil sales said Friday that it is preparing to discontinue services to Iranian financial institutions, an unprecedented and potentially devastating blow to Tehran as the West ramps up a campaign to stop its nuclear program. The statement by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, known as SWIFT, suggests that the European Union — under pressure from Washington — is close to More than 40 approving regu- Iranian banks lations that will require the and instituBrussels-based tions use hub to evict Ira- SWIFT to nian institu- process fitions from its nancial transranks. Some U.S. actions… lawmakers are pushing for sanctions on SWIFT itself if it keeps up its services to Iran. SWIFT lawyers were coming to Washington next week for meetings with Congress, and Friday’s announcement was widely seen as a way to head off that action. The Obama administration wants to see Iran barred from using the financial pass-through, which is used by virtually every nation in the world and overseen by major central banks. More than 40 Iranian banks and institutions use SWIFT to process financial transactions, and losing access to that flow of international funds could badly damage the Islamic republic’s economy. It would also probably hurt average Iranians more than the welter of existing banking sanctions already in place since prices for household goods would rise while the value of Iranian currency would drop.

Thousands of Egyptians rallied in Port Said in a show of support for residents reeling from popular anger directed against the Mediterranean city after a deadly soccer riot there this month that killed 74 people. The melee at the Port Said stadium after a Feb. 1 match between the local Al-Masry club and the Cairo-based Al-Ahly team shocked Egyptians and sparked days of deadly street violence in Cairo. Survivors of the stadium riot say Al-Masry supporters stormed the field to attack Al-Ahly fans, stabbing them, undressing them and tossing them off bleachers while the police looked on. Port Said residents have been collectively blamed for the stadium riot, and many say they have been living under a de facto siege since then, said activist Mohammed Waked.

Vatican leak scandal, reports of infighting cloud ceremony for new cardinals

NEW HAVEN, CONN.

The Associated Press

A Connecticut woman whose son served her with eviction papers on her 98th birthday says she’s upset and wants to stay in the home where she raised her children. Mary Kantorowski has lived in her yellow Cape Cod-style home in Fairfield since 1953. Her oldest son, 71-year-old Peter Kantorowski of Trumbull, told the Connecticut Post when he last saw her eight months ago, she seemed disoriented and was living in poor conditions. Peter Kantorowski, who owns the house, says his mother has rejected his suggestions to live with him or in a nursing home. Another son, Jack Kantorowski, tells WTNH-TV that his brother is a “scumbag.”

VATICAN CITY — A scandal over leaked Vatican documents and reports of political infighting, financial mismanagement and administrative chaos in the Holy See’s frescoed halls have cast a cloud over this weekend’s ceremony to create 22 new cardinals. With Pope Benedict XVI slowing down as he nears his 85th birthday, today’s ceremony has taken on the aura of a

Mercury astronauts traveled during their training to Cape Canaveral to watch a missile blast off. It was a night launch, and the rocket blew apart over their heads. “That wasn’t a very good confidencebuilder for our first trip to the cape,” Glenn said. Improvements were made, and Glenn said he gained confidence in his Mercury-Atlas rocket, a converted nuclear missile. Otherwise, he said he would not have climbed aboard.

pre-conclave summit. Reports abound in the Italian media of cardinals and their supporters jockeying Dolan for prominence ahead of a future papal election, and of a Vatican bureaucracy in disarray as Benedict focuses his waning strength on other matters.

All that has weighed on today’s consistory, where the 22 new princes of the church will be formally welcomed into the club that will elect Benedict’s successor. Friday’s meeting was headlined by Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York. Dolan peppered his remarks with humor. He told the cardinals that evangelizing in today’s world required its mis-

sionaries to live and spread the faith with love, joy — and “sorry to bring it up, but blood.” He noted how cardinals wear scarlet cassocks to symbolize their willingness to shed blood for the faith and make a pledge during the consistory to die as martyrs, if necessary. “Holy Father, can you omit the ‘shedding of your blood’ when you present me with the biretta?” Dolan asked the pope. “Of course not! We are but ‘scar-

let audio-visual aids’ for all of our brothers and sisters also called to be ready to suffer and die for Jesus.” The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, has been doing serious damage control of late amid reports and leaked documents alleging corruption in the running of the Vatican city state, money laundering at the Vatican bank and political infighting between opposing camps within the Vatican bureaucracy.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. El Khalifi, who was under constant surveillance, expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times, the counterterrorism official said. During the investigation, El Khalifi went with undercover operatives to a quarry in West Virginia in January to practice detonating explosives, according to court documents. He believed he was working

He had been under investigation for about a year and had overstayed his visitor visa, which expired in 1999, making him in the country illegally, according to court documents. According to the affidavit filed by an FBI agent, El Khalifi told acquaintances in January 2011 that he agreed the “war on terrorism” was a “war on Muslims” and that they needed to be ready for war.

Happy Birthday In Heaven

Donna Allan

If tomorrow starts without me, And I’m not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn’t cry The way you did today, While thinking of the many things, We didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too; When tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind All those I dearly love. As I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for, So much left yet to do, It seemed impossible, That I was leaving you. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I’d say good-bye and hug you And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, That this could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things I might miss some tomorrow,

2/18/52 ~ 12/28/10

I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. When I walked through heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne, He said, “This is eternity, And all I’ve promised you. Today your life on earth is past, But here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, And since each day is the same way, There’s no longing for the past.” So when tomorrow starts without me, Don’t think we’re far apart, For every time you think of me, I’m right there, in your heart. Deeply and Sadly Missed By Tony, Children Lori, Brittney, Morgan & Tony and All of Your Family and Friends

PHILADELPHIA – Former Wilkes-Barre Area School Director Brian Dunn was released from federal custody Friday after serving more than 16 months of an 18-month prison sentence on a corruption charge. Dunn, 48, of Wilkes-Barre had been serving the last few months of his sentence at the Philadelphia Community Corrections Management facility. U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said Dunn left the faciliDunn ty Friday morning. Dunn could not be reached for comment. Attorney Scott Griffith of Philadelphia, who represented Dunn in the case, did not return a message left Friday afternoon. Dunn pleaded guilty in December 2009 to accepting a $5,000 bribe from the relative of someone who was given a teaching job in the district four years earlier. At Dunn’s sentencing in October 2010, federal prosecutors increased the amount of bribes to between $10,000 and $30,000. The government opposed leniency for him, arguing that his behavior “was not aberrant” and he “accepted multiple corrupt payments over a lengthy period of time.” Dunn began serving his sentence at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, N.Y, and was transferred to the Philadelphia CCM as his release date approached.

Pension payments cited as danger

Visitors tour the garage in PennDOT’s new Luzerne County Maintenance Office in Ashley on Friday morning.

PennDOT has house warming By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

ASHLEY – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation on Friday celebrated the opening of its $9.4 million District 4-3 Maintenance Office, a modern headquarters for Luzerne County operations that PennDOT hopes will improve efficiency. “This is a great example of the department providing the tools for people to do their jobs,” state Secretary of Transportation Barry Schoch said at a dedication ceremony. “This will help us serve our customers here in the region for years into the future. This is a state-of-the-art facility.” The building, located on Main Street in Ashley near the onramp to Route 29, replaces PennDOT’s 75year-old garage in Bear Creek Township as the department’s central office and garage in the county. It will be the home office for about 40 of the 135 full-time employees of PennDOT’s Luzerne County division. At 38,000 square feet, the garage dwarfs the 22,000-square-foot Bear Creek garage, where about half the

available space could not be used due to structural deficiencies in the floor. But despite its larger size, PennDOT officials said Schoch the garage will also be more cost-efficient to operate. Heating the garage for the four coldest winter months will cost about $9,000 versus $49,000 at the old garage, and an in-house vehicle wash will allow the department to clean its trucks on site, rather than paying up to $20 per vehicle at commercial car washes. The garage has 12 vehicle maintenance bays, providing enough space to make major repairs to summer equipment in winter and vice versa without impeding day-to-day maintenance schedules. It also consolidates equipment and storage spaces spread across the Bear Creek garage, improving efficiency and security. Schoch said the new garage is also more environmentally friendly than

its predecessor because it is heated with cleaner-burning natural gas rather than heating oil and is constructed on rehabilitated mine land purchased from Earth Conservancy. According to Earth Conservancy Executive Director Mike Dziak, culm banks that formerly occupied the 12acre site where the garage now stands were removed by Northampton Generating, which used the culm to generate electricity before returning waste ashes for use as fill in grading and leveling the site. PennDOT chose to build the garage in Ashley because it’s near the geographic center of the county, a requirement for any county headquarters, because it has easy access to major state roads and Interstate 81and it isn’t near any residential or busy commercial districts, PennDOT’s Deputy Secretary for Highways Scott Christie said. In addition to the new garage, PennDOT also operates 10 “stockpile” garages housing a total of 69 vehicles in Luzerne County.

PITTSTON TWP. – Warning that a few small payments now would lead to requests for larger ones in the future, Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey D. O’Brien urged the bi-county board overseeing the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport to hold off on repaying Luzerne or Lackawanna counties the required annual retirement contributions owed for the past two years. “Our counties’ short-term gain will be the long-term demise of this airport,” O’Brien, who chairs the sixmember board, said at a board meeting this week. The comments came after Luzerne County Controller Walter Griffith asked the board to consider making the payments to Luzerne County, which is owed $130,595 from 2010 and $113,002 from 2011, according to Gary Borthwick, airport finance and administration director. Griffith said the airport has an obligation to make the payments or to have its employees removed from the county pension plan and placed in one created by the airport. Airport employees contribute individually to the pension funds in each county. O’Brien But O’Brien made an impassioned plea to board members, who include his two fellow Lackawanna County commissioners and two members of the Luzerne County Council plus the county manager, who has yet to take his seat because he doesn’t start work until month’s end. He said the airport spent years building up its finances so it could build the new terminal, attract airlines and flights, and market itself to businesses and fliers. And while it has a few million dollars in its “sinking fund,” to take money out of that account, even a few hundred thousand dollars could be detrimental to future projects that might require matching funds or startup dollars, O’Brien said. While O’Brien acknowledged that “both counties face economic challenges,” he didn’t think taking money from the airport was the solution. He predicted if that happened the airport would ask the counties in the future for money needed to start or complete projects. “It’s a slippery slope,” O’Brien said. “It is critically important that we do not take two steps back.” O’Brien said Lackawanna County was not interested in getting its retirement payments from the airport at this time, knowing the hardship it could create for the airport. The airport’s retirement contribution in 2010 for Lackawanna County was $93,506, Borthwick said. He was not able to give a 2011 figure. The Lackawanna County amounts are lower because fewer employees at the airport live in Lackawanna County.

WRIGHT TWP. – Crestwood School Board voted unanimously Thursday evening to accept the recommendation of Superintendent Dave McLaughlin-Smith and hired Margaret Foster as Fairview Elementary School principal. She will receive an annual salary of $75,000. She replaces Ronald Grevera, who left to become superintendent of the Northwest Area School District. According to district officials, Foster’s salary and benefits will be pro-rated for the 2011-12 school year. The board also voted to accept and approve the state Auditor General’s performance audit report dated Jan. 31. District business consultant Al Melone addressed the tentative state budget recently proposed by Gov. Tom Corbett, which will include another round of education cuts.

But we now we’re going to have to drill deep to make things work.” McLaughlin-Smith stated the board will review all options regarding possible program cuts and other cost-saving measures before putting forth a proposed budget in May. He added the district will see considerable savings once a new health insurance provider is secured per current negotiations. State Rep. Ed Pashinski, DWilkes-Barre, was on hand to discuss the governor’s budget and urged residents to call their local representative to express their opposition to the projected education cuts. “The state is negligent with this budget,” stated Pashinski, a retired teacher. “They’re not doing their job. Cutting education is not funding education. And all he’s (Corbett) doing is cutting.” Said board member Jerry Orloski: “Our number one priority is balancing our budget. And that sometimes means making difficult decisions. But we will make those decisions.’

OTHER OPINION: CONTRACEPTION

Rescinding order was right move

I

T TOOK NEARLY a week, but the Obama administration did the right thing when it reversed course on a controversial edict that would have required the Catholic Church to provide its employees insurance that would cover contraception, a direct violation of church doctrine. The insurance requirement would have turned a blind eye to that portion of the First Amendment that prohibits Congress from passing a law that would prohibit the free exercise of religion. The edict would have applied to the schools, hospitals, colleges, charities and any other institutions run by the church. “Religious liberty will be protected and a law that requires free preventative care will not discriminate against women,” President Barack Obama said in a brief appearance in the White House briefing room. “I understand some folks in Washington want to treat this as another political wedge issue,” the president said. “But it shouldn’t be.” EDITORIAL BOARD

Actually, this was an issue that blew up in the president’s face and threatened to derail his re-election campaign by alienating many of the people who had voted for him four years ago. Make no mistake, for the devout, the practice of religion involves much more than attending religious services. It includes tenets by which the faithful live every day. And when the federal government tries to impose a requirement that forces the church to turn away from those beliefs, it is telling Catholics that they are not permitted to live their lives as the church indicates but rather as the state dictates. Although the order would not have required anyone working for a Catholic hospital or university to take advantage of the offering, that misses the point. Rescinding the order was the right thing to do. If Obama hadn’t, the courts certainly would have invalidated it. Reading Eagle

A concerted effort needed to help homeless veterans REPORTS THAT hundreds of Pennsylvania’s veterans are among the homeless provoke the sort of outrage threading The Times Leader’s Feb. 8th editorial (“Everyday battle on home front”). The same sense of outrage is why the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee moved to learn more about the problem and to gather recommendations for solving it. As the testimony and discussion at the public hearing proved, both the causes and the cures are complex. The candid perspectives of several individuals who suffered homelessness brought a human face to a tough set of challenges. The problems are not simply neglect, indifference or cracks in an overwhelmed network. Veterans groups and social service agencies are making concerted efforts to reach veterans who lack a permanent address. Among those detailing the programs now operating was Monsignor Joseph P. Kelly, who runs Catholic Social Services in the Scranton Diocese. He described how the housing crunch has increased homelessness, and he underscored the crucial connection between employment, health care and hous-

Several testifiers pointed out that some of the homeless individuals, for a variety of reasons, distance themselves from their community and existing support services. The ongoing outreach efforts of veterans’ groups are the best hope for locating these individuals and aiding them in overcoming the economic or health-related problems that contributed to decline. The prolonged poor economy has exacerbated other problems for many vets, as it has for families everywhere. We cannot count on an eventual economic recovery being the certain answer for the needs of every vet suffering personal difficulties. The greatest concern is that, even with the combined efforts of private and public organizations, it is a constant struggle to find the resources and facilities available to help all who need assistance. This problem will grow more acute as the many veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan return to the workforce and the housing market.

We cannot count on an eventual economic recovery being the certain answer for the needs of every vet suffering personal difficulties. Central to doing a better job of dealing with existing needs and preparing for increasing demands is finding a way to generate resources in these tough budgetary times. The answer might be in creating a Veterans’ Trust Fund and developing dedicated funding sources. Legislation soon will be introduced to begin this process. The other encouraging sign is the Corbett administration appears to be assigning greater priority to intervention services and housing options to curtail homelessness. As the editorial indicates, good intentions and ceremonial speeches are not enough; our obligation to veterans requires substantial action by state government and extensive follow-through by community groups, professionals and volunteers alike.

losing Meyers High School in WilkesBarre would be atrocious. One of the most important things about a neighborhood school is the friendships that students develop and the way those friendships continue to flourish when you live in the same area. Public schools are not chain stores. They are not shoe stores that can be closed and relocated when they don’t turn a profit. They are a public service, a public good. It is the obligation of public officials to provide good public schools in every neighborhood, not to privatize them or to act as an umpire whose role is to judge them defective and shut them. If those who are in charge can’t help struggling schools, shame on them. Every time a public school is closed, it should be considered a failure of the administration. They should be held accountable for their incompetence. Good leadership in education means taking responsibility for making things better. Good leaders should be recognized for the schools they improve. Bad leaders close schools because they are incapable. Closing the school does nothing to help the students. District leaders should do whatever is necessary to help keep the school in the neighborhood. Perhaps it’s time to take a deep breath to study what can be done. Closing any high school is going to create a downward spiral. Some

students who prefer that school will leave the district; the remaining schools will be short those students and their funding, and be that much less attractive to the remaining potential students. In part, we chose our neighborhood because it had a neighborhood school. There goes the neighborhood? Patty Hughes Wilkes-Barre

The league had young players on the way up and older NBA players. Remember, the NBA had very few teams in the 1950s and ’60s, so a lot of good talent played in the EPBL. Levern Tart, Larry Jones, Stan Pawlak, Paul Arizin, Bill Spivey, Wayne Hightower, Paul Silas, K.C. Jones and Jim Boeheim (now Syracuse University’s coach) to name a few. This new team seems more organized than the NEPA Breakers (USBL) from a few years ago. This league has a good brand of basketball that the whole family can enjoy and afford to see. The owner, Chris Glisson, should be commended for bringing this team to our area. A few hundred spectators, mostly from the Scranton area, come out to each game. Games can be seen on the Internet as well. There are five home games left: Feb. 19 – vs. the Dayton Air Strikers. Feb. 24 – vs. the Lake Michigan Admirals. March 15 – vs. The Lake Michigan Admirals. March 16 – vs. the Lake Michigan Admirals. March 17 – vs. the Rochester Razor Sharks. Why don’t basketball junkies from our area take in a game? I think all will enjoy this level of basketball.

Deal trims jobless benefits to 73 weeks Measure begins to wind down extended benefits OK’d during recession.

By SAM HANANEL Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Millions of Americans will continue to receive long-term unemployment benefits under legislation approved

bill reduces the current maximum 99 weeks of benefits to 73 weeks by September. For those in all but about a dozen of the highest unemployment states, benefits will be cut off after 63 weeks. The benefits are for people out of work more than six months. The program has provided checks to about 18 million out-of-

Friday in Congress, but the scope of the program is being scaled back to cover fewer people by the end of the year. The measure, which also extends a payroll tax cut through the rest of 2012, begins to wind down the program of extended federal jobless benefits that Congress first approved at the height of the recession. The

work Americans who exhausted the 26 weeks of state jobless benefits. Democrats had hoped to keep the maximum number as close as possible to 99 weeks, arguing that the benefits are critical for those struggling to make ends meet and provide a boost to the economy. Republicans wanted to reduce the maximum time span for benefits

BILL Continued from Page 1A

Both provisions, which were to expire in less than two weeks, had been extended only two months during a December congressional fight that seared Republicans. They were determined to avoid a repeat in campaign season. The hard-fought — but ultimately bipartisan — measure contains the core of Obama’s jobs agenda and promises to pump more than $100 billion into the economy before Election Day. It hands the president a political victory as well, as Republicans called a tactical retreat in hopes of minimizing the gains for Obama and his Democratic allies on Capitol Hill. The Senate approved the measure on a bipartisan 60-36 vote minutes after the House passed it on a sweeping 293-132 vote. Obama is expected to sign it shortly after returning from a West Coast fundraising swing. The hope is that the dual measures will inject consumer demand and support a fragile recovery from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. The legislation would also protect doctors treating Medicare patients from a steep cut in their reimbursements under an outdated funding formula, a reduction that threatened to make

it harder for seniors to find physicians. The tax cuts, jobless coverage and higher doctors’ payments will all continue through the end of the year. Many Republicans opposed some or all of the legislation but were eager to wipe the issue from the election-year agenda. The measure would pack $141 billion onto the federal deficit over 2012-2013 and slowly recoup more than $50 billion of that over the coming decade. “It is amazing what happens when Congress focuses on doing women following birth, but not miscarriage or abortion. • Provide abortions to inmates – but does not specify how abortions are paid for. • Have a designated prenatal care provider. Luzerne and Mifflin counties are the only two counties that try to arrange for furloughs or early release of pregnant inmates based on their due dates. Both jails have plans for where pregnant inmates can deliver if prior arrangements cannot be made. Only Lackawanna County has a policy that defines when a pregnant inmate should be taken to the hospital. The report also outlines where Luzerne County is lacking in specific policies, including: contraception for work-release inmates, contraception for other medical reasons and STD testing. Specifically it cited a 1998 Luzerne County case in which a judge joined with the county pris-

on to prevent an inmate from obtaining an abortion at the jail and ordered the prison to provide transportation to an off-site clinic. The ruling also required the prison to honor all future requests for abortion as necessary medical procedures. “The inmate is responsible for paying for her abortion, unless she cannot afford to, in which case the county will cover the cost of the procedure,” the ruling states.

Court of Common Pleas President Judge Thomas Burke said the number of furloughs in court branches is “generally consistent with the earlier projections noted by the court.” Burke said earlier this month he was hopeful no more than 10 employees would be furloughed. He declined to discuss layoff specifics. “As it relates to the current situation, through a combination of elimination of positions – both vacant and otherwise – furloughs, transfers and unfunded positions, there have been steps taken by the courts in an overall effort to reduce expenses and to improve the efficiency of court operations,” Burke said.

the right thing instead of just playing politics,” Obama said at an appearance at a Boeing factory in Everett, Wash. In fact, politics has been woven into the struggle over the legislation, which, along with the divisive GOP primary campaign and improving economic news, has coincided with a lift in Obama’s poll numbers.

sion of the tax cut and jobless coverage, only to retreat after being portrayed as standing in the way of a tax cut for every American who earns a paycheck. The top GOP negotiator, Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., said the final deal was the best Republicans could get given the balance of power in Washington. “Democrats still control Washington — they control the Senate, and they control the White House,” Camp said. “A divided government must still govern.” Camp cited stricter job search requirements for people receiving unemployment benefits and other reforms to the program as wins for conservatives. While a solid majority of Republicans in the House backed the measure, GOP opposition was stronger in the Senate, where Republicans voted against the bill by a 2-1 margin. Five Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., opposed the measure, while 14 Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, backed it. In a GOP win, coverage for the long-term unemployed would be cut from the current maximum of 99 weeks to a ceiling of 73 weeks by this fall in states with the worst job markets, with most topping out at 63 weeks. But Democrats extracted a concession so that states with the worst jobless rates would actually fare better in the next few months than they otherwise would have.

County officials have challenged the courts’ hiring of staffers last month for six new judges. Burke said the court was able to provide staff for new judges because 14 people “left employment with the court” at the end of 2011. County Interim Manager Tom Pribula said he won’t confirm or deny the names of employees who will be furloughed until the Human Resources Department finalizes all details and impacted employees have been notified in writing.

The written notification, expected early next week, will include information about how the employees may continue to purchase health insurance through the county and obtain assistance seeking new employment.

She said the administration also told her there are a “substantial number” of voluntary furloughs that should reduce forced layoffs. Most furloughs are slated to take effect March 1, which means the workers will continue to receive county-funded health insurance through the end of March, officials said. County Sheriff John Gilligan confirmed Wednesday he is among the furloughed workers because the sheriff’s office will be merged with security. Gilligan expects county Security Chief John Robshaw will be appointed sheriff after his departure. County Controller Walter Griffith also verified he has furloughed auditor Margaret Ciavarella and will be eliminating a management worker.

The twins were taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital where one died an hour after arriving.

Charlie Fisher will take over today as Penn State’s new quarterbacks coach. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

On Thursday night, Bill O’Brien took to the center of the court at the Bryce Jordan Center, speaking to the crowd at halftime of a basketball game. Along with a short speech, the Penn State coach was introduced along with eight members of his staff. But that ninth and final spot – a quarterbacks coach – remained vacant. That will change today. O’Brien conFisher firmed Friday to reporters that Miami (Ohio) assistant Charlie Fisher will become Penn State’s new quarterbacks coach, effective today. The hiring will complete O’Brien’s inaugural staff. Fisher replaces Jay Paterno, who had been the program’s quarterbacks coach for the past 12 seasons. After growing up some 60 miles east of State College in Allenwood, Fisher returns to his home state as a coach for the second time. Before spending 2011 with the RedHawks and the previous nine seasons at Vanderbilt, he previously served as Bobby Wallace’s offensive coordinator at Temple. His FBS experience also includes two years as receivers coach at North Carolina State. Fisher was a head coach for five seasons at Division II West Georgia. But his highest-profile stretch was at Vanderbilt, where he joined up as a running backs coach in 2002 and 2003 before being installed as the passing game coordinator for the next seven seasons. Fisher worked with Commodores star and future Pro-Bowler Jay Cutler in his junior and senior campaigns, though he was not his position coach. Cutler threw for nearly 5,000 yards and over 30

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The key to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins power play is to have a brick wall in front of the net – a big forward who can stand in front of the goaltender and become unmovable. During Friday’s game against the Binghamton Senators, Geoff Walker was that brick wall, and Alex Grant was the beneficiary.

For the second time this season, Grant posted a pair of power-play goals to lead the Penguins to a 6-1 win over Binghamton to kick off a threegame road trip. The win was the Penguins’ 30th of the season and ended a two-game losing streak. They are now 19-5-0-3 on the road and 6-1-1-0 against the Senators this season. Coupled with a St. John’s loss to Hamilton on Friday, the Penguins are now three points out of the Eastern Conference lead and remain tied with Norfolk for the top spot in the division. Grant scored both of his goals by blasting slapshots from the point. And each time Walker was stationed

It was perfect.� Grant’s first goal came when he sent a slapper through Walker’s legs as he screened Lehner.

Phil Mickelson chips from the gallery to the 12th green during the second round of the Northern Trust Open on Friday.

Mickelson in front despite shaky day Lefty shoots 1-over but uses an eagle, a birdie and three par saves to lead in L.A.

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

LOS ANGELES — Phil Mickelson wasn’t at his best Friday at Riviera. Two shots at least helped him stay in the lead. Despite having only two birdie chances inside 15 feet, Mickelson holed out from the eighth fairway for eagle and chipped in for birdie on the par-3 16th. That carried him to a 1-under 70 and a two-shot lead in the Northern Trust Open. Mickelson made three par saves from outside 10 feet, starting with his opening hole at the par-4 10th. He went from the front bunker to the back bunker, blasted out safely to 18 feet and curled in the par putt. That set the tone for a day that only looked good on the scorecard. “I probably didn’t play the greatest today, but I was able to kind of salvage a good round and had a good break on eight where I holed out from the fairway,” he said. “That was a nice little bonus.” He was at 6-under 136 among those who finished early at Riviera in mild temperatures and not nearly as much wind as the

opening round. That didn’t affect the scoring. There was just enough rain earlier in the week that with foot traffic on the greens, those short putts are no longer as easy to make. Jimmy Walker had a 66 and was tied for second at 138 along with Carl Pettersson (70) and Matt Kuchar (69), who had a solid day without too much excitement until he drilled his tee shot to a back left pin on No. 6 and left himself 5 feet for birdie. Before he could putt, he was stung by a bee in his arm. “I haven’t been stung by a bee in probably 20 years,” Kuchar said. “I had stopped being scared of bees. The thing got me, and it was really painful. It was not much fun.” Kuchar said his elbow felt as though it were on fire. If that wasn’t enough, there was the advice from the medical staff. “They said if you have trouble breathing, stop and we’ll try to help you from there,” he said. Joe Ogilvie delivered the shot of the day, making an ace on the 16th hole with a 7-iron. It was his third hole-in-one on the PGA Tour, and he has yet to win a prize. At least at a tour event, he didn’t have to buy drinks. “There were 10 guys up there that looked like they could drink 1,000 beers,” he said. “I’m glad I didn’t do this at my club.”

Leach, Texas Tech still at odds By BETSY BLANEY Associated Press

LUBBOCK, Texas — The fight between Mike Leach and Texas Tech isn’t over yet. Leach’s attorney vowed to keep fighting after the Texas Supreme Court on Friday rejected the former coach’s appeal in his wrongful termination lawsuit against Texas Tech. The court issued its decision more than two years after he was fired by the university amid allegations that he mistreated a player with a concussion. The player, Adam James, is the son of Craig James, a former SMU star and ESPN broadcaster. Leach denied the allegation and later sued the school, saying

he suspects an $800,000 bonus he was due the day after his 2009 firing was behind his dismissal. He was recently hired as the coach at Washington State. Leach’s attorneys had challenged an appellate ruling that threw out Leach’s breach of contract claim against Texas Tech based on sovereign immunity for the university. The ruling allowed Leach to try to show Tech’s reasons for firing him were wrong — without monetary relief — and the university appealed that decision to the state’s high court. Leach attorney Ted Liggett said he will seek a ruling that Tech erred in firing him by denying him due process.

PHILADELPHIA — Dirk Nowitzki had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks erased a 15-point deficit with a dominant second half to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 82-75 on Friday night. Dominique Jones added 12 points, and Jason Kidd had nine points, nine rebounds and eight assists to help the Mavericks win their sixth straight game. The Mavericks snapped a tie early in the fourth with a 9-0 run, and that was more than enough with the 76ers losing their touch in the second half. Nowitzki nearly beat the Sixers on his own in the second half, scoring 24 points after halftime to match Philly’s team total in the half. Nik Vucevic scored 16 points to lead the Sixers, who missed 13 of 14 attempts from 3-point range. Heat 111, Cavaliers 87 CLEVELAND — LeBron James scored 28 in his third game back to Cleveland as a visitor, Dwyane Wade added 22 and the Miami Heat won their fifth straight — all on the road — by destroying the Cavaliers. James, booed loudly every time he touched the ball by fans who haven’t forgiven him for leaving two years ago, scored 16 in the third quarter when the Heat opened a 34point lead. James added four dunks, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and rested the entire fourth quarter. Bobcats 98, Raptors 91 TORONTO — Reggie Williams scored a season-high 22 points to help the Charlotte Bobcats snap a 16-game losing streak by beating Toronto. D.J. Augustin had 11 points and 10 assists, Kemba Walker scored 14 points and fellow rookie Bismack Biyombo had a career-high 13 rebounds as the Bobcats won for the first time since beating Golden State 112-100 on Jan. 14. Corey Maggette added 16 points as Charlotte avoided becoming the 28th team in NBA history to drop at least 17 straight games. Magic 94, Bucks 85 ORLANDO, Fla. — Dwight Howard scored 26 points and

Love’s fourth 30-point outing in the last five games helped the Timberwolves improve to 3-1 against Houston this season. Thunder 110, Warriors 87 OKLAHOMA CITY — James Harden scored 25 points, Kevin Durant added 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder completed a season sweep of the Golden State Warriors. Russell Westbrook scored 18 points for Oklahoma City, but the All-Star point guard left the game with 1:13 left in the third quarter with what the team said was a sprained right ankle. He didn’t return.

Pistons 114, Kings 108 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Rodney Stuckey scored a season-high 36 points and rookie Brandon Knight added 23 points and 10 assists as the Detroit Pistons rallied to beat the Sacramento Kings.

Down by12 early in the fourth, the Knicks made a run with Lin on the bench, and cut it to 73-71 when Jared Jeffries hit a free throw after Lin returned during a timeout with 5:29 left. The Knicks got it down to two again on Lin’s free throws with 1:06 to play, but Gustavo Ayon answered with a bucket, Lin missed wildly on a drive to the basket, and when Belinelli’s free throws with 25 seconds left made it 87-82, fans began heading for the exits, perhaps in search of Lin-burgers, “Lings” — Asian-spiced chicken wings — or “Lintinis,” Lin-spired items that have begun popping up at

bars around the city. Thus ended a remarkable run by the Knicks, who were 8-15 when coach Mike D’Antoni finally turned to Lin, the undrafted point guard from Harvard who was perhaps days from being cut for the third time this season when got this sputtering team on track. They only figure to get stronger in the coming days. Anthony worked out before the game and is close to returning, and the Knicks signed his former Denver teammate, J.R. Smith, on Friday. Smith is eligible to return to the NBA after his Chinese team’s season ended, and the Knicks believe he will strengthen their poor 3-point shooting. But none of that helped Friday.

NEWARK, N.J. — Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias scored shootout goals and the New Jersey Devils beat the red-hot Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Friday night. Martin Brodeur made 36 saves and preserved the shootout win with a pad save on Ryan Getzlaf as the Devils won for the seventh time in nine games and handed the Ducks only their seventh loss (14-3-4) since the start of the year. Getzlaf appeared to score 1:10 into overtime, but the goal was waved off after a review showed he kicked the puck into the net. Capitals 2, Panthers 1 SUNRISE, Fla. — Alexander Semin scored the tiebreaking goal and Tomas Vokoun made 22 saves against his former team as the Washington Capitals beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Friday night. Alex Ovechkin also scored as the Capitals moved two points behind the first-place Panthers in the Southeast Division. Tomas Fleischmann scored for Florida and Jose Theodore stopped 39 shots. Hurricanes 3, Sharks 2 RALEIGH, N.C. — Jussi Jokinen scored on a deflection with 8:05 left to lift the Carolina Hurricanes past the San Jose Sharks, 3-2 on Friday night. Jeff Skinner and Justin Faulk scored 3:03 apart in the first period for the Hurricanes, who let a two-goal lead slip away before regrouping to beat the Pacific Division leaders. Red Wings 2, Predators 1 DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk scored with 5 seconds left to give the Detroit Red Wings 22nd consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Nashville Predators on Friday night. Two nights after breaking the NHL single-season record for consecutive home victories, the Red Wings tied Boston’s multiple-season mark. The Bruins closed the 1929-30 season with 20 victories at home and won their first two the following season. Detroit can break the record Sunday against San Jose. Canadiens 4, Sabres 3, SO BUFFALO, N.Y. — Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais scored shootout goals, and Carey Price stopped both attempts he faced in the Montreal Canadiens’ 4-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night. Chris Campoli, Scott Gomez and Tomas Kaberle scored in regulation to help the Canadiens win their third straight road game and improve to 5-1-1 in their past seven.

Champ Stewart starts his season with a bang By MARK LONG AP Sports Writer

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Defending Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart caused the first accident of Speedweeks. Stewart, who did little wrong in last year’s season finale and clinched his third NASCAR title, rear-ended Kurt Busch during practice Friday for the exhibition Budweiser Shootout. Stewart turned Busch’s No. 51 Chevrolet sideways, collecting four others. Penske Racing teammates Brad Keselowski and AJ Allmendinger, as well as Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon, also were involved in the six-car accident about 45 minutes into the first practice session.

DAYTONA 500 NOTEBOOK “I was pushing the 51 car and he had to move a little bit, but I’m still the one pushing so I’m responsible for it,” Stewart said. The cars of Stewart, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Keselowski and Allmendinger sustained significant damage. Stewart’s crew decided to fix his car. The other four teams switched to backup cars. Gordon’s car sustained minor damage. The Budweiser Shootout, a non-points race, kicks off the 2012 season Saturday night. It’s considered a warm-up event for

seconds remaining for the Mohawks’ final points. “I just knew they wanted to get Crawford the ball for the last shot, and I wasn’t going to be the one to let him tie it up,” said Krawczeniuk, who guarded Crawford most of the second half. “So I overplayed and luckily the ball came right to me.” Nothing came to Meyers early on. The Mohawks made six turnovers in the opening minutes of the first quarter, allowing GAR to take a 7-0 lead. They recovered with a 13-0 run to end the first quarter and never trailed. A key throughout was the strong play of Meyers’ forwards Eugene Lewis and Moore on the boards. Like in the first meeting won the Meyers 54-48, the duo did their jobs, with Lewis pulling down a game-high 13 rebounds and Moore grabbing 10 more. The Mohawks finished with a

bounds pass as he rolled to hoop for a two-handed slam. Yanora fired off two more three-pointers before Hawk came through with another double-fisted dunk, firing up Tunkhannock. Dallas tried to answer with some long-range offense from Bob Saba, who drained three shots of his own from long range before Shane Dunn added another. Just when it looked like Dallas had pulled within reach, Yanora struck from well behind the three-point line and then ended the third with his fourth three-

point jumper of the quarter. “Give credit to Tunkhannock tonight,” Dallas coach Doug Miller said. “They played with a lot of good energy, came out very fired up. We’re going to meet again, though, and will certainly be prepared for them.” The Mountaineers did manage to outscore Tunkhannock in the fourth, taking advantage after Hawk fouled out. The senior center collected 12 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots while playing most of the game in foul trouble.

34-17 edge on the glass. “I thought Alex Pape had a very good game for us, too,” Meyers coach Pat Toole said. “He stepped up and in the first half and had some backdoor layups and hustle plays. He’s one of those unsung guys who does all the blue-collar work and doesn’t get much press.” Pape scored on a backdoor cut off a pass by Moore with 50 seconds left until halftime. Krawczeniuk then rattled in a threepointer for a 26-17 lead at the break. GAR managed to chase down a double-digit deficit in the second half to 41-38 with 53 seconds to play when Isaiah Francis scored on a tip-in. But there were too many voids in the offense, like in the opening minutes of the fourth when a few trips down court produced a lone point. “We had the game where we needed it in the last couple of minutes,” GAR coach Paul Brown said. “We had the possessions and the kids did a great job running the things we wanted.

The win sends Dallas into the District 2 Class 3A tournament as the WVC’s fifth seed. The loss ends Tunkhannock’s season one win shy of the tournament. Both teams had identical 7-5 league record entering the game, which was originally scheduled for Thursday, but had to be postponed due to weather conditions. “Yeah, we were ready yesterday,” said Dallas’ Ashley Dunbar, who had 11 points, three steals and seven assists. “In the beginning, we were a little iffy. But we were fired up and got out running and playing as a team.” In the teams’ first meeting on Jan. 3, the Tigers won 47-42 behind a balanced offense paced by Katie Proulx’s season-best 11 points. Friday, the Tigers (15-7) struggled throughout the game with their shooting. They shot just 15 percent from the field, including a 4-for-26 first half. “Nothing fell for us in the first half,” Tunkhannock coach Amanda Golden said. “We couldn’t buy a bucket. We couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.” The Dallas (13-7) defense had something to do with the Tigers’ woes. The Mountaineers forced 26 turnovers and piled up a number of transition baskets after a closely contested first quarter. “We’re very pesky,” Dunbar said of Dallas’ potent press and tough halfcourt defense. “We like to be in their faces. We’re quick and we like to catch them offguard.” Dallas broke open a 7-5 game in the second quarter when Sam Missal hit a three-pointer from the left wing, followed by Englehart’s stickback. Dunbar had a bucket on the break and Missal hit a three from the top of the key, staking the Mountaineers to a 17-7 lead with 5:29 remaining in the half. Dallas had a 15-4 run in the first half and a 26-2 run in the second to cruise into the postseason. “Coach told us to deny them the ball,” Englehart said of her work in the post. “I had to stop Lisa (Kintner, Tunkhannock’s

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

GAR lineman Soto collects 1st major scholarship offer By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – GAR football standout Shakir Soto received a heck of a Valentine’s Day greeting – his first college scholarship offer. Boston College became the first Division I program to offer the junior defensive end when it contacted him on Tuesday. “It was awesome,” Soto said. “I was shocked, just overwhelmed at first. It’s an exciting feeling.” Soto said the offer came via Boston College defensive line coach Jeff Comissiong. Penn State invited Soto to games this past season while Joe Paterno and later interim coach Tom Bradley were in charge. The new coaching staff has also been in contact with the 6-foot-3, 235pound all-state selection. “The new tight end coach, John Strollo, he called and asked

about me and will keep in contact over the next couple weeks,” Soto said. Soto has also talked to Temple defensive line coach Sean Cronin on Thursday. Soto was named to Wyoming Valley Conference Coaches Association Small School all-star team as well as The Times Leader AllWVC team. He made a team-high 114 tackles and nine sacks. He also returned an interception for a touchdown and blocked a punt. Although he also plays on the offensive line for GAR, he is being recruited as a defense end with the possibility of playing outside linebacker. While Soto waits for the track season to start where he competes in field events, he’s been keeping busy. “I’m just lifting, eating and keeping my school work up. That’s my main goal,” Soto said.

COLLEGE WRESTLING

Colonels back to winning ways against King’s Wilkes wins city rivalry 32-14 after being surprised last season by the Monarchs. By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE — A year ago in the city rival wrestling showdown between King’s and Wilkes, the Monarchs pulled an upset battling to a tie with the ranked Colonels. Wilkes, which entered Friday night’s dual at the Marts Center ranked 19th in the country, wasn’t going to let that happen again. The Colonels dominated the

Monarchs, 32-14, winning seven of the 10 matches to win for the 15th time in their last 16 duals and kept a chokehold on the rivalry, holding King’s winless in the battle of the city schools for the eighth straight year. Before last year’s tie, Wilkes had won six straight in the series. The Monarchs’ last win in the series came in the 2003-04 season. Both teams will now prepare for the Metropolitan Conference championships, which will be held Feb. 26 at Elizabethtown. The Monarchs (6-16) enter the event losers of five in a row, while the Colonels’ (19-4) only loss in the last two months was by four points to fifth-ranked Ithaca last

week. “We’re really feeling good about where we’re at right now,” Wilkes coach Jon Laudenslager said. “And going into the conferences that’s what you want.” Friday’s dual started with Wilkes claiming the first three bouts and grabbing bonus points on wins by Michael Fleck (125 pounds, technical fall), Myzar Mendoza (133, major decision) and Ryan Wilson (141, fall) for a 15-0 lead. The Monarchs’ Chris Mazzocchi got his team on the board to trim the lead to 15-3 with a decision at 149. But the Colonels reeled off three more consecutive wins to open an 18-3 advantage

and secure the match victory with three bouts remaining. In that stretch, Wilkes earned more bonus points with a forfeit and a major decision. Six of the Colonels’ seven wins added bonus points to the team score. The Monarchs ended a rough regular season as they limped to the finish line with several key injuries such as ACL injuries and concussions. They had to forfeit as many as three bouts in duals. That’s an unlikely scenario for a team with such a rich tradition. “You can’t do anything about that. Sometimes it just doesn’t fall your way,” King’s coach Ned McGinley said. “But the kids are

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Jay Paterno nominated but ineligible for PSU trustees By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

STATE COLLEGE — As Jay Paterno figures out what to do next, the former Penn State assistant coach at least knows one avenue he will not pursue. Paterno, son of the late coach Joe Paterno, said Friday he was nominated to run for a seat on the university’s Board of Trustees, though he never declared his candidacy and cannot run anyway because of election guidelines. According to Paterno, the Trustees office informed him last

week that he had received at least 50 nominating votes, the threshold needed to qualify. But bylaws prevent former employees from serving for a period of three years after leaving the university. “I got that email from the office of the Board of Trustees really out of the blue,” Jay Paterno said Friday in a phone interview. The same board ousted Joe Paterno in November following 46 seasons in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Some alumni and former players critical of the trustees’ handling of the crisis

see the race this spring for three alumni-elected seats on the board as a way to enact change. “With still another week to go being able to nominate people, I want to make sure that people nominate (those) who are eligible,” Paterno said. “We encourage all Penn Staters to get involved in Penn State’s governance and in the Trustee election process,” he said in a statement. “It is a vital role for alumni of this great institution and only by participation can we make an impact on our most be-

fighting.” One of the Monarchs’ scrappers is 184-pounder Mike Reilly. The senior, who is ranked eighth in the nation by d3wrestle.com, improved his record to 25-2 this season with a technical fall victory over Buddy Gouger. Reilly finishes with a 4-0 record in four career duals against the Colonels. “Buddy is a tough guy, but Reilly just knew he wasn’t going to be fooling around with him and was smarter than him, that’s all,” McGinley said. Reilly’s win followed one of the premier matches on the night at 174 when Wilkes’ Dustin Stough defeated Lake-Lehman product Shane Stark 2-1. Stough’s second point was awarded for riding time as Stark couldn’t work a takedown late in the third period. Stark’s loss drops his record to

It appears he won’t coach next season, though he hasn’t ruled anything out. “I’m taking the year off, pursuing a couple things,” he said. “I want to take my time and sort those things out.”

Yankees ready to deal Burnett Wilkes, King’s The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The Yankees agreed Friday to trade much maligned pitcher A.J. Burnett to Pittsburgh for two minor leaguers, a deal that clears the way New York to add Raul Ibanez. Pittsburgh will pay $13 million of the $33 million salary due Burnett for 2012 and 2013, a person familiar with the negotiations said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made. New York will receive 25year-old right-hander Diego Moreno and 20-year-old outfielder Exicardo Cayones, both low-level prospects. The agreement is subject to Burnett passing a physical, which is likely to take place Sunday. Commissioner Bud Selig also must approve it because of the money involved. New York intends to use the money saved to sign a designated hitter. The Yankees already have been negotiating a major league contract with Ibanez, who spent the last three seasons with Philadelphia. A 35-year-old right-hander, Burnett has gone 34-35 with a 4.79 ERA during three seasons with New York, including 11-11 with a 5.15 ERA last year. His average of 3.98 walks per nine innings was second in the AL and fifth in the majors during that span among pitchers with 400 or more innings, according to STATS LLC. Burnett became superfluous when the Yankees acquired Michael Pineda from Seattle in a trade and agreed to a one-year deal with free agent Hiroki Kuroda. They joined holdovers CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova, Phil Hughes and Freddy Garcia. In Pittsburgh, Burnett joins a rotation that includes newly signed Erik Bedard and returnees James McDonald, Kevin Correia and Jeff Karstens. Charlie Morton is recovering from hip surgery in October. When Morton is available, Karstens could return to the bullpen and spot starts. Boston Red Sox FORT MYERS, Fla. — Tim Wakefield is retiring after pitch-

touchdowns in those two seasons before becoming a firstround draft pick. Perhaps not coincidentally, Fisher’s first official day with the program comes on the first big recruiting weekend for the class of 2013. The Nittany Lions are hosting roughly 50 high school juniors on campus today, including multiple high-profile quarterbacks. Penn State is still working out how the play-calling on offense will work this season. O’Brien had initially said he would handle that responsibility in the first year but later said that it would be determined after the staff was finalized. “Yes, I’m going to be very involved with the offense,” said O’Brien, who served as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. “But as far as play-calling, that depends on where I go with that (last coaching) spot.” O’Brien also served as quarter-

it 3-0 with five minutes remaining in the first. “That start gives all the guys confidence,” Rust said. With less than two minutes to go, penalties to Cody Wild and Robert Bortuzzo gave the Senators 1:45 on a two-man advantage and a chance to get back into the game. Corey Locke made sure the Senators took advantage when he slam-dunked a pass at the corner of the crease to cut the Penguins lead to 3-1. The Penguins’ hot start was in

After two seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the righthander signed as a minorleague free agent in April 1995. He was 186-168 with a 4.43 ERA with the Red Sox. Only Roger Clemens and Cy Young had more wins (192) with the team. Wakefield is first in team history with 3,006 innings and 430 starts, and second in games and strikeouts. For his career, Wakefield was 200-180 with a 4.41 ERA He was 7-8 with a 5.12 ERA last season in 23 starts and 10 relief appearances. He won two World Series championships in Boston. “There were a few seasons I didn’t know if I was coming back, but I kept coming back and proving myself year after year,” Wakefield said. “I was fortunate enough to play 17 AP FILE PHOTO years here. It’s been a great one. I’ve been very blessed. Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett will be traded to Pittsburgh for two “I am just very grateful.” prospects, pending a physical and approval of Bud Selig. New New York Mets PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Johan Santana threw off a mound Friday for the first time after a 41⁄2-month break as he tries to make it back to the major leagues for the New York Mets’ opener in April. The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw 25 pitches to Josh Thole on Friday, Santana’s first mound session since pitching four innings in an Instructional League game on Sept. 30. Santana had surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder on Sept. 14, 2010, and has not pitched in a major league game since. “I feel really good,” he said. “This is something we always do. The approach that we had from the beginning was to do everything like I always do to get ready for the season and that’s, for me, about the time to backs coach with the Patriots, working directly with future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady, and will also take a hand in developing the position for the Lions. With the new coaching staff, Penn State heads into the offseason with uncertainty under center for the third straight season. Matt McGloin and Rob Bolden split time throughout the 2011 campaign and the battle will start right back up again in the spring. Also in the mix will be Paul Jones, who sat out last season for academic reasons. He returns, as does walk-on Shane McGregor. True freshman Steven Bench will arrive on campus in the summer. If O’Brien has a preference, he hasn’t tipped his hand. But he did lay out exactly what he is looking for in an interview last month. “Number one is decision-making,” O’Brien said. “Number two is accuracy. Number three is intelligence. And number four – and none of these are in any real ranking, they’re all equal – number four is athletic ability. As in, what is their type of athletic ability. jeopardy, but they responded by killing the rest of the penalty and matching Binghamton in a fastpaced first half of the second period which featured no stoppages for the first 11 minutes. “It was real important for us to finish the kill because they’re such a skilled team,” Penguins coach John Hynes said. “They can get some momentum pretty quick, so it was important to finish the kill first.” A Binghamton penalty put the Penguins back on the power play later in the period, and Grant made them pay. With Walker screening Lehner again, another Grant blast clanked off the post and into the net for a 4-1 lead.

York will pay $20 million of the $33 million still due Burnett.

get on the mound and start throwing. “I was able to throw my pitches and it felt good after that.” Mets manager Terry Collins, who stood a few steps from Thole during the session, said Santana will work out with the team the way any healthy player would. Pitchers and catchers start drills Wednesday. “You saw the smile on his face. You don’t think he’s happy with what’s going on? He is,” Collins said. “It’s a huge step for us. It’s a big day for him, and now it’s just gradually move forward and build him up.” Santana said he felt like his arm and motion were approaching where they were in 2010. Oakland Athletics PHOENIX — The Oakland Athletics still have strong in-

terest in signing slugger Manny Ramirez, who presents a lowrisk investment for the rebuilding franchise. If things come together, the 39-year-old would sign a deal for slightly more than the league minimum of $480,000. He first must serve a 50-game suspension without pay for violating baseball’s drug policy for the second time. With no rainouts, the first game Ramirez would be eligible to play is June 2 at Kansas City. The sides could reach agreement as soon as the next few days, and Ramirez then likely would travel from Florida to Arizona to undergo a physical before joining Oakland’s spring training camp for full-squad workouts starting Feb. 25. Pitchers and catchers report to camp Saturday.

O’Brien might have preferred, but his caching staff is finally complete with the hiring of Fisher. For several weeks, it appeared that George Godsey would be coming over from the Patriots along with O’Brien, but Godsey will apparently continue on with New England instead. That delayed things until Thursday, when Fisher was introduced to the staff before finalizing his contract with Penn State for this coming weekend. In his lone season overseeing the RedHawks passing game, they finished 14th in the country as quarterback Zac Dysert threw for 3,500 yards and 23 touchdowns. Fisher may be best known for working with Jay Cutler at Vanderbilt, though he was not the future Pro Bowler’s position coach. In his first year at N.C. State, Fisher inherited Torry Holt and coached him during a prolific senior season that earned Holt a high first-round draft slot.

“It’s all relative to who that player is and relative to what they’re capable of. We’re not zoned in on (finding a) Tom Brady. “We’re going to take the best

QB out there that fits the mold of a Penn State quarterback. A great guy off the field, a leader, great in the classroom, smart on the field, a great decision-maker and accurate.”

It was Grant’s second game this season with two power play goals. Twenty of his 27 points this season have come on the man-advantage. “I think I have to pick it up fiveon-five,” Grant joked. “The way the power play is going, it’s obviously suiting my style.” Rust tallied his second goal after he deflected an Alexandre Picard slapshot in the third period to give the Penguins a 5-1 lead. It was the first two-goal game in Rust’s career, and three of his four goals this season have come against Binghamton. “Both of his goals were around the net, and that’s the type of offense we expect from him,” Hynes said.

The Senators continued to press for the rest of the period, but Scott Munroe remained solid all night in net and made several saves under traffic to prevent a second Binghamton goal. Munroe stopped 24 of 25 shots on the night for his 10th win of the season. “He made key stops when we needed them, and that’s always a big difference,” Hynes said. Nick Petersen added a goal late to make it 6-1 and seal the win. Rust said the Penguins need to carry the momentum from Friday’s win as they travel to Albany for tonight’s matchup. “It’s good to get the win because you don’t want to have a bad bus,” he said. “At this point in

A Colonels win would give them a home game in the conference tournament. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

A pair of frantic finishes. One went the Colonels’ way, one that didn’t. Experience gained from a lastsecond win at Eastern and a lastsecond loss to DeSales in the past week may end up playing dividends for Wilkes in the UP NEXT playoffs. Freedom Right now, Conference however, the basketball Colonels King’s at Wilkes still have one WHEN: Today game left in Women: 1 p.m. Men: 3 p.m. the regular WHERE: Marts season to Center worry about, and it’s an important one. Wilkes hosts rival King’s at 3 p.m. today at the Marts Center with a Freedom Conference tournament home game on the line. The women’s teams will tip off the doubleheader at 1 p.m. The Colonels (15-8, 8-5) started league play 6-0 before losing five of their last seven. Tuesday’s loss to DeSales knocked them out of contention for the No. 1 overall seed, but they can still earn the No. 2 seed – and an all-important home game in Wednesday’s semifinal round – by defeating the Monarchs. Though the Bulldogs have pulled into a tie for second place with Wilkes – earning a split in the season series – the Colonels hold the tiebreaker with DeSales by virtue of their 1-1 record against first-place Misericordia. The Bulldogs were swept by the Cougars. The Colonels will honor seniors captains Kendall Hinze, Paul Huch and Matt Mullins along with senior reserve Todd Eagles before their final regular season home game. Mullins scored a career-high 30 points in the first meeting with King’s, a 6656 Wilkes victory. “They’ve been outstanding young men, good representatives of the university and have done well in school,” Wilkes coach Jerry Rickrode said. “With them, we’ve been able to have another group with four straight winning seasons, but they’d like a little bit more. Haven’t been able to make that jump during that four years to win a championship. “They’ve had four solid seasons. We’d like to take it a bit further.” It will be the last game on the season for the Monarchs (9-15, 4-9), who also have struggled down the stretch, dropping eight of their last nine. King’s coach J.P. Andrejko, however, said the focus remains on improving his squad rather than wrecking the season for the Colonels. “Honestly, to us it doesn’t matter if we’re 24-1 or 1-24, it’s always about the type of game we want to play and what we want to do,” Andrejko said. “So I’m not focused on being a spoiler. It’s going to be about making our team better and going out and playing our game. “I never care about the other teams. I don’t. I never do.” the season it’s a lot easier to win games when you’re growing as a team and not taking steps back.” NOTES • D Boris Valabik (injury), D Carl Sneep (injury), D Philip Samuelsson, LW Brandon DeFazio, LW Steve MacIntyre (injury), RW Keven Veilleux (injury) and D Simon Despres (injury) were scratched for the Penguins. • Hynes shuffled his lines for Friday’s game. The most notable change was the top line combination of Bryan Lerg, Ben Street and Jason Williams. “It brought some energy,” Hynes said. “It was nice to see with one practice and a game that they clicked fairly well.”

The roles are reversed for the women’s game, as Wilkes (6-18, 112) is the team preparing for its final game of the year. King’s, meanwhile, is hoping to play at least three more after today. Though the Lady Monarchs (20-4,12-1) had their13-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday at Misericordia, they still own the top seed in next week’s Freedom Conference tournament. Wins in both rounds would guarantee them a spot in the NCAA tournament, but the Lady Monarchs are hopeful that their resume could earn them an atlarge berth if they fall short. For that to happen, they can’t take the Lady Colonels lightly. King’s lost on senior night up at Misericordia and will face the same situation today. Wilkes’ lone senior is Whitney Connolly, a starting guard from Liberty who has played an important role as one of just four players who returned from last season under the program’s former coaching staff. Elsewhere, both Misericordia teams close out the regular season on the road with the long trip to Manhattanville. The good news for the Cougars is that both games are largely inconsequential. The men have already wrapped up the top seed in next week’s conference tournament and the women are locked into the No. 2 spot. Misericordia is in line to host a playoff doubleheader on Wednesday at the Anderson Center with the opponents to be determined today.

PPL spending $664M on upgrades

Aqua lists improvements

Aqua Pennsylvania on Friday announced $9 million worth of improvements to its water and wastewater operations in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The total includes approximately $4 million for main replacement and $2 million to upgrade 25 water treatment facilities to comply with new rules from the state Department of Environmental Protection. Among the projects are three to replace small diameter plastic pipe with 8-inch ductile iron pipe at Eagle Rock Resort in Hazle Township and Trucksville Gardens in Kingston Township. Aqua also will upgrade the well station and install a new water tank in the Fieldcrest subdivision, Jackson Township.

A smaller project will improve the local distribution system in the Blytheburn Road area of Mountain Top. “Generally, these projects are much more local” than substations, Wood said, benefiting a few hundred to 2,000 customers. Work will include installing a new transmission line, circuit breakers and other equipment “to better distribute the load within the community for reliability. “It’s just like putting another circuit breaker in your house,” he said. New automated switches should improve reliability and enable the utility

spokesman in explaining the nearly 50 percent increase in annual capital project outlays. Much of the electricity distribution system was built decades ago, Wood said, “but the demand on the systems across the state is much greater.” Project costs “vary from $150,000 to several million dollars,” Wood said. Work will include replacement of 1,000 transmission-line poles, 81 substation circuit breakers and substation transformers. One of those projects will be a $2.5 million upgrade of the Harwood substation in Hazle Township.

to identify and respond to outages faster, Wood said. Overall, more than 100 projects will be undertaken, according to a press release. Wood said they would be prioritized by age and those where performance most needs improvement. PPL Electric Utilities has steadily boosted capital spending in recent years, from $290 million in 2009 to $422 million in 2010 and $458 million last year, the release said. It serves about 1.4 million customers in a 29-county area. Wood said 100,850 are in Luzerne County.

The setting of a price range signals Yelp is close to completing its initial public offering of stock. The process began three months ago when Yelp filed its plans to go public. Although Thursday’s filing didn’t lay out a timetable, IPO pricings typically occur two to three weeks after the selling company spells out how much it wants for its stock.

GM worker bonus: $7,000

General Motors’ record $9.19 billion in net income for 2011 will mean profitsharing bonuses of as much as $7,000 for 47,500 eligible UAW members. That’s an all-time high for GM, and up from an average of $4,300 for the company’s U.S. union workers last year. The payouts, scheduled for March 2, come on top of similar bonuses at Ford and Chrysler. The money may help lift the economies of states with unionized auto factories such as Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky.

Consumer prices edge up

Consumer prices rose modestly in January on higher costs for food, gas, rent and clothing. The consumer price index increased just 0.2 percent last month, the Labor Department said. The gain was the same for core inflation, which excludes volatile food and gas costs. Most economists say inflation should ease in the coming months as prices for raw materials level off.

According to Dziak, BP has been using staging areas in farm fields closer to the construction site but has run into problems with the heavy blade arms, which weigh more than 100,000 pounds, sinking into the mud.

When BP is finished using the property, Dziak said, Earth Conservancy plans to market the pad as a site for industrial or commercial warehouse construction.

Ahead of another cold front, temperatures this afternoon will turn rather mild for this time of year rising into the mid 40s. Later in the day, scattered rain showers on radar will mark the passing of the front. In higher elevations, a mix of rain and snow or snow pellets will occur followed by clearing tomorrow evening. Temperatures will turn only slightly colder for Sunday when a snow storm will just miss us to the south. The storm will help to veer the wind to the north ushering in colder weather for Monday under a clear, blue sky. - Tom Clark

Have dreams? Hop aboard the new crazy train

This network a big idea factory

Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

ike the images on its site, the clever definitions and analogies by Pinterest users are endless: “Pinterest is like getting a new magazine in the mail every day.” “Pinterest is everything you never knew you always wanted to know about anything.” “It’s like Etsy and Pottery Barn had a baby and made a scrapbook of their cute little family.”

The latest social-media craze is a vir- source, so a pin of, say, chicken curry, tual pin board, or scrapbook, to collect should take you to the website or blog and organize your favorite images and that provides the recipe.

For local pinners, website is an addicting source of constant inspiration. By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

Rachel Taylor’s push-pin board at home filled up quickly, so she eventually began to keep an organized binder of the recipes and interior-decorating photos from which she gathered inspiration. One binder turned into two and, by the time Pinterest came along, she was thanking the Internet gods that she finally had a messfree space to keep everything. “I’m obsessed with decorating and home design, and I would go through magazines and just cut out whatever caught my eye,” the 24-year-old Kingston resident said. “I’m going to know exactly what I want to do the day I get a house.” Interior design is just one subgenre of Pinterest that’s catching the eye of many locals. The socialnetworking site caters to those interested in everything from fashion and do-it-yourself projects to gardening and travel. The visual aspect of Pinterest is the most appealing part of the social networking site for many. “I like it because you don’t have to sit down and read through things,” Rachel Pracka, 28, of Wilkes-Barre said. “It’s a quick glance down the page, hit the re-pin button, and you’re set.” Some of the most popular boards have to do with do-it-yourself projects for any and every occasion. Former West Wyoming resident Tami Pivtchev, 47, who now lives in Middleport, N.Y., is president of her local Lions Club and uses Pinterest to find party ideas. She recently made strawberry mice on a cheese tray, which were a huge hit. See IDEAS, Page 2C

atch out, Facebook and Twitter. Some serious competition has arrived. Kids today have found an entirely different, somewhat offbeat kind of diversion out there in cyberspace, and the good word’s traveling like wildfire. OK, I’m mostly kidding about the kids part. Truth is you probably won’t find all that many preteens, tweens (or whatever’s best to call them these days) hidden away in their high-tech, refrigerator-outfitted bedrooms until all hours “pinning” their bliss on virtual pinboards, which is the very basic – and dare I say brilliant? – concept behind the hotter-than-hot website known as Pinterest. No sir, and you apparently won’t find many sirs doing so either. Pinterest, you see, is a tidy little club appealing, at least for now, mostly to the ladies of the land, predominantly twentysomethings through fortysomethings apparently, and it comes with the little bragging-point bonus tag of “invitation only.” (Ah, yes, nothing like those two oldie-but-goodie words to take a grown woman back to her sleepover-party days.) I’ll let you in on a little secret, though – if you don’t already know it – it’s not terribly hard to “get in.” I “applied,” but I don’t think they did too much vetting before congratulating me with a nice acceptance note, not quite college-style but cool enough, and welcoming me to this “exclusive” club constructed on mountains of ideas. In other words, yeah, I was cool enough – and so are you, certainly – to build a whole new social network of friends who might like not only to know everything from what you like to eat (or dream of eating) or wear (or dream of wearing), how you decorate (or dream of decorating) or what kinds of crafty little cutesies you can make (or would like someone else with finer motor skills to make for you). Remember the days when women used to say “Oh, I saw that in … (insert magazine name here)?” No longer. A print loyalist at heart, it pains me to say this, but these days, “I saw it on Pinterest” carries the greater cache. (Sorry, Better Homes & Gardens, but you and I may have to break up when my subscription runs out, for I need neither scissors nor files nor physical bins of any sort to store so many pictures of all the things I mean to do with my newly invigorated, Pinterestplanned life.) “Plan” is the operative root word, though. Read on. Now, I’m no expert and was as confused as any newbie when I began my board-building venture a month or so ago, but I can now proudly report that if you decide to follow me on Pinterest – yes, like Twitter, you choose whom to track and trail – you’ll quickly realize that in a future life I plan to: • Embrace decoupage (finally). • Turn a colander into a planter. • Make a wreath out of crayons and a picture frame out of clothespins. • Buy, if not a coat of many colors, then a pair of shoes in same. • Cook and serve root-beer pulled pork, chocolate-peanut butter Crescentroll croissants, something called “cooler corn” and, well, just a whole host of simple-to-sinful creations. • And, oh yeah, build an adult treehouse. I intend to do that, too. And I’ve only just begun, my friends. Pinterest is nothing if not a boulevard of dreams waiting to be broken. It’s said there are pinners and doers, and for now, anyway, I guess I’m just a pinner, whose hands can’t keep up with her head and whose means don’t match her mental meanderings anyway. Yeah, I’ve even pinned a few whole new houses to my boards. Someday … Hey, a woman can dream. If this thing really blows up, and I remain transfixed, I’m going to have to own a few more properties, after all. Present-day home sweet home, a little too overpacked as it is, will have my head, I’m sure, if I introduce even one more big idea.

What’s new Vonny’s casserole and pie carriers let you show up at your next potluck in style. The carriers have laminated canvas exteriors in cheerful prints and brightly colored interiors. Both are insulated to maintain a dish’s temperature, whether hot or cold. The Designer Casserole Carrier fits a standard 9-by-13-inch dish and has an interior pocket for hot or cold packs. An exterior pocket holds storage utensils. The Pie Carrier fits a standard 9- to 10-inch pie plate and has a nonskid surface on the inside to keep the pie from sliding in transit. The casserole carrier costs $48 and the pie carrier, $64. They can be ordered at www.vonny.com and are sold in boutiques across the United States and Canada. Shipping is extra. On the shelf Some gardeners save seeds to cut costs. Some save them to preserve rare plant species. Others just crave the kinds of tomatoes you can’t buy in a store. Whatever the motivation, “The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds” provides the information to get you started. Authors Robert Gough and Cheryl Moore-Gough provide a basic botany lesson and information about harvesting and preparing seeds, saving them from season to season and using them to grow new plants. For the more ambitious seed savers, there’s information about breeding new plant varieties. About half of the book is devoted to specific information about 322 plants. The book covers not just vegetables and fruits, but herbs, flowers, trees and shrubs as well. “The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds” is published by Storey Publishing and sells for $24.95 in softcover.

IDEAS

Q&A Q: I want to make sure all those bulbs I dug out of the ground are good to go for spring. How and where should I keep them? A: In general, summer-flowering bulbs need to be stored in a cool, dry place where they’re protected from freezing. In many cases, it’s a good idea to let them air dry for a week or so and then store them in peat moss or sawdust, perhaps in a brown paper bag, a net bag or an old pair of pantyhose. The best storage methods differ among flowers, however. The Ohio State University Extension has information in its Summer Flowering Bulbs fact sheet (HYG-1244-92). It can be found in the Yard & Garden section at http://ohioline.osu.edu.

“Pinterest truly has a lot of unique ideas, which is what I need,” she said. “We have a lot of activities and fundraisers, and I also love to help other people plan their parties. Right now my daughters and I are using it to search for party ideas for my granddaughter’s first birthday.” Wedding ideas also are a big draw. “I’m getting married in a year and a half, and I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted,” Sharon Wincenciak, 29, of Kingston said, “but then I got on Pinterest and started to see all these things, and there are just so many now, I don’t know what to do.

YOUR PLACE ALAN J. HEAVENS

The winter has been virtually snowless, but the temperatures haven’t been high enough to give your furnace a three-month vacation. How well has your heat source been performing? Although replacing the furnace now — unless it has conked out and been beyond repair — is not considered wise, you might consider doing so when winter has vacated the premises. One expert, David Coulson of Napoleon Fireplaces in Crittenden, Ky., says the heating contractor first notes the size of the house and then determines the size of the furnace necessary for the space. “A furnace that is too large leaves gaps in temperature as it turns on until it overwhelms the thermostat,” Coulson says. “The house ends up cooling down until the next cycle and creates an inconsistent temperature.” A furnace that is the right size for the space will be able to better regulate a constant temperature. Price is not the No. 1 factor you should consider when buying a furnace. Annual operating costs for whatever furnaces you are thinking of should be your main concern, Coulson says. Efficiencies, however, can vary drastically depending on price, which means that if you pay more up front now, you’ll still enjoy lower heating bills 10 or 15 years later, he says. Here’s one thing that seems to trip up most of the readers of this column: purchase agreements and warranty information. Any reputable installer or manufacturer will be sure to not only include the purchase agreement and warranty information but also explain exactly what you are getting. If you feel confused or unsure about anything, don’t be afraid to ask. And if you are buying a house, get copies of these documents from the seller, as well as the name and phone number of the installer or the company that maintains the furnace. This assumes, of course, that the furnace was correctly installed and properly maintained. You cannot assume that all installers know their job, but it is safe to say that people who do this for a living are usually more reliable than the do-ityourselfer. Regular maintenance, generally in the fall, will keep the furnace performing like it should, keep your family warm, and lower your energy bills. Questions? E-mail Alan J.

Mother is still waiting to meet her children’s soon-to-be stepmother Dear Abby: I am a divorced mother of two incredible children. My ex and I have come around to being civil, if not friendly with each other. He has been dating a woman and they will be getting married in three months. Abby, I haven’t met her yet. I understand through my children that she’s very nice and good to them. My ex keeps telling me they are not ready for introductions. I haven’t pushed the issue because I want to keep things on friendly terms. My question is, at what point is it appropriate to introduce your ex to your children’s soon-to-be stepparent? — Ready in Houston

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Ready: Because you and your ex share custody of your children, the logical time for you to meet his fiancee would have been at the time of their engagement — if not before. I can’t help wondering why your ex is stalling about making the introduction because it will be important that you and your children’s stepmother can function effectively together. Dear Abby: I’m a coupon clipper. I save our household an average of $30 to $40 a week using them. Sometimes I have a great coupon we can’t use, so

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

I’ll leave it at the store on top of the item it’s for. When I do, my husband accuses me of littering and merely creating trash for store employees to pick up. I think a stranger finding a valuable coupon for the item he or she wants is a kind way to “pay it forward.” I only do it when the coupon offers significant savings. What are your thoughts? AM I being a litterbug? — Chicago Clipper Dear Clipper: Of course you’re not being a litterbug. You’re being generous, and I’m sure many — if not all — of the coupons you leave have been put to good use. Since you asked for my thoughts, I’ll share one: You have a critical hus-

CRYPTOQUOTE

band who is faulting you rather than complimenting you on your generosity. Shame on him. Dear Abby: My grandson and his bride were going through their gift envelopes and found some with nothing in them. They don’t know if there was money inside and it fell out. If they thank a guest for a gift and there was none, it could seem sarcastic. If they don’t thank the person and there was money inside and it got lost — THEN what? What do they say? Also, there was a family (mother, son and daughter-in-law) who attended the wedding. The mother put in a check that was larger than she really could afford, while the son and daughter-in-law left a card with nothing inside. My grandson doesn’t know

if the check was intended to be from the three of them. Abby, what’s the proper way to handle this? — Empty Envelopes in California Dear Empty Envelopes: Your grandson and his bride should write notes to those guests whose envelopes were empty saying, “We want to thank you for being part of our wedding day and helping to make it so memorable and meaningful. Your presence and the fact that you were with us made it extra special. With love ...” 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). There are things you did because at the time it felt as though it was your only option. You didn’t know any better then, and now you do. So forgive yourself, and get on with your brand-new day. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Waste no time in wishing you were more like so-and-so. You’re not. You’re you — equally wondrous and different from any person in the world. Each path is unique. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It feels as though you’ve lived many lifetimes. Friends remember funny incidences from your past. You’ll likely be caught off guard by the memories, which is what makes them so funny. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Theoretical knowledge is just the beginning of learning. You have to experience a task fully to understand how it works. Make arrangements to get into a job and get your hands dirty. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s true that not everyone can wrap their head around you. But embrace your contradictions anyway. They make you more attractive. And cherish the person who delights in your complexity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be like the tortoise now, plodding slowly along. Your pace doesn’t matter as much as your direction and determination. As long as you don’t stop, you’ll be victorious. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). However you think things should be, there will be someone who thinks otherwise. A compromise might work, but you’ll be happier doing things your way today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you like someone, you feel more creative and open around that person. You also feel like spending money. Tonight, saying “no” and sticking to it will save you a small fortune. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes popularity causes you to seem noncommittal. There are so many faces to greet that you have to keep moving along. Everyone enjoys your company for a short time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The chaos subsides, if only long enough to let you take part in a quiet, gentle pastime. You’ll find inner peace and change your experience of the world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have passion working in your heart. Your conviction is the one factor that will make the difference between getting the job done or not. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll hear news about someone you used to know well. There’s no time to waste in being jealous. Get busy creating the kind of success that is the cruelest revenge! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 18). You’ll focus on issues of identity and discover who you are at deeper levels. You have a knack for surrounding yourself with good people. Partnerships bring pleasure and delight. In March, you’ll do a new job well and be met with approval. You will economize in April so that you can enjoy luxury later. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 3, 29 and 6.
