The department has directed administrators to fire anyone coming in contact with schoolchildren who had been convicted of one of the 28 listed offenses in the past.

Smaller shops offer old, new area traditions By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Ask someone from Northeastern Pennsylvania where to get the best kielbasa – or soppressata, or scamorza, for that matter – and odds are the answer won’t be a supermarket chain. But what about the best burrito, samosa or jerk chicken? This area prides itself on its ethnic food, and specialty butcher shops, bakeries and markets are the high keepers of that tradition.

Law against lying about military deeds focus for high court

Some call Stolen Valor Act unconstitutional. Others say it is defense against fraud. By MARK SHERMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Xavier Alvarez was in good company when he stood up at a public meeting and called himself a wounded war veteran who had received the top military award, the Medal of Honor. Alvarez was lying about his medal, his wounds and his military service, but he wasn’t the first man to invent war exploits. See AWARDS, Page 8A

Doug and Pam Sterner live in Alexandria, Va. Pam is the author of a college paper that led to the drafting of a federal law in 2006, the Stolen Valor Act, aimed at curbing false claims of military valor, and Doug exposes phony medal winners. The law is at the heart of a Supreme Court review.

He was, however, one of the first people prosecuted under a 2006 federal law aimed at curbing false claims of military valor. Concerns that the law improperly limits speech and turns people into criminals for things they say, rather than do, are at the heart of the Supreme Court’s review of his case and the Stolen Valor Act. Veterans groups have come to the aid of the Obama administration, which calls the law a narrowly crafted effort to protect the system of military awards that was established during the

Dempsey said an Israeli attack is “not prudent,” and Hague said it would not be “a wise thing.” Israel and the West believe Iran is trying to develop a nuclear bomb — a charge Tehran denies. But differences have emerged in how to respond to the perceived threat.

you have a fancy calendar that lists today as “Presidents’ Day,” then march right back to where you got it and demand your money back. It’s broken. You see, while today IS set aside to honor all our commanders in chief, it’s technically still known as Washington’s Birthday. It’s all part of a government conspiracy from the late 1960s to combine Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthdays so we can celebrate national holidays on Mondays. Somehow, the informal title of “Presidents’ Day” stuck to it and that’s why we are in this mess today.

Gallery lets books be SEEN in winter Bookbinder finds venue to showcase his craft before heading out to fairs. By GERI GIBBONS Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE – Bookbinder S.L. “Stitch” Kester is grateful for the opportunity to design and sell his books this winter at the Arts SEEN Gallery on Public Square. The artisan said winter provides a challenge in finding a venue in which to offer his high-quality bound books. Greenleaf Bookes, as his effort is titled, seems to have found the perfect spot in a room at the gallery. Having traveled throughout the country to Renaissance fairs and similar events, Kester is quick to share stories and information with other artists and customers. “When I first met Stitch I was impressed with the unique quality of his work, and I am happy to give him the opportunity to share his craft with area residents,” said Kathleen Godwin, who oversees Arts SEEN. “Bookbinding is not only what I do,” said Kester, “it’s who I am.” He is proud his volumes are hand-folded and acid-free. Each one is numbered, signed, dated and recorded, making each unique. The materials used include leathers, cloth and other materials in a variety of colors and textures.

Thon dance event sets a record

Penn State fundraiser nets $10.6M despite negative publicity from scandal.

By MIKE DAWSON Centre Daily Times, State College, Pa.

UNIVERSITY PARK -- Despite economic malaise and a mountain of negative publicity about their university in the past three months, Penn State students raised $10.6 million-plus to support families of children with pediatric cancer. The record amount, $10,686,924.83, for the Four Diamonds Fund, was unveiled at 4 p.m. Sunday at the end of the IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon. The amount bested the then-record $9.5 million raised last year. Perhaps the highlight of the 46 straight hours of music, entertainment and camaraderie of Thon was an appearance by Jay Paterno at noon Sunday. He told the crowd of more than 15,000 that students here should be known for their leadership in pulling off Thon and not the events surrounding the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal, “which they had nothing to do with,” he said. Donning a blue Thon hooded sweatshirt, Paterno told more than 15,000 people that Penn State students should be known for raising millions of dollars to support cancer research. “If you live to be 100 years old, what you’ve done here for the past two days, weeks, months, all this time you’ve put into this, what you’ve done here will echo in eternity. You represent the best of our alma mater,” Paterno said. He said he kept a Thon mug placed at the make-shift memorial at the Joe Paterno statue outside Beaver Stadium. “That mug sits on my desk every day,” he said, reminding him of what Penn State and Thon is about. After the death of Joe Paterno last month, the Paterno family asked that memorial contributions be made to the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State’s Hershey Children’s Hospital, which administers the money Thon raises.

He describes many of his bound books as “whimsical” and enthusiastically shares books bound in selected themes. For example, Kester has enrobed some of his volumes in tartan plaid to reflect the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, and some are decorated with hearts for those who prefer romance. Kester, 62, and a Vietnam War

veteran, has been in the area since December and has inhabited a spot in the gallery for two weeks. He plans to remain in the area until early June, when he will begin traveling to Renaissance fairs throughout the country for which he will dress in costume as he continues his work.

FNCB rewarding students

EATON TWP.

Stolen hardware recovered

State police said an inspection sticker violation they noticed on an overloaded Jeep Saturday morning led to the discovery of $17,000 worth of hardware stolen from a contractor working in the natural gas industry in Bradford County. Jonathan Dale Keithline, 28, of Nicholson, was driving the Jeep and tried to hide it behind the Subway sandwich shop along state Route 29, state police said. When state police found the Jeep they said they found it was loaded down with seven steel flanges and nine steel plugs. Upon further investigation the hardware was determined to have been stolen Friday from the Linde Corp. construction yard in Tuscarora Township, state police said. Keithline and his passenger, John Jerome Morgan, 27, of Meshoppen, were taken into custody and charged with receiving stolen property. Keithline also was charged with the inspection violation and driving with a suspended license. The men were arraigned by District Judge David Plummer and committed to the Wyoming County prison for lack of bail.

LUZERNE COUNTY

First National Community Bank has announced the continuation of a program aimed at rewarding local students for their hard work and success. The Simply Smart program rewards students with $1 for every A or number grade above 90 percent on their report card every marking period, the bank announced in a news release. To participate, students simply bring their report card to any of the 21 FNCB branches in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties. The reward amount will then be deposited into a new or existing interest-bearing youth savings account. “As the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, we are continually trying to develop programs that give back to our local community,” said First Senior Vice President Joe Earyes. FNCB volunteers also visit local classrooms to teach financial literacy and money management skills through the Teach Children to Save and Get Smart About Credit programs. This school year alone, more than 1,300 students in 70 classrooms have been impacted, the bank stated.

PLAINS TWP. – When Dave Wasilewski said he would do anything to get out the message of what could go wrong when drilling for natural gas in Northeastern Pennsylvania, he meant it. The Hunlock Creek man sang two of his songs Sunday night at the second annual fundraiser concert for the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition. Between acts, Wasilewski stepped up to a microphone on the stage at the River Street Jazz Café, picked up an

acoustic guitar and performed “Frackwater Waste,” and “Deranged Resource.” The crowd had thinned out from the nearly 250 people who filled the nightclub earlier in the evening and those who stayed applauded him. After his short set he talked about how he got involved with the coalition whose mission is to educate the public on the effects of drilling, especially the hydraulic fracturing process, or “fracking,” used to extract natural gas from the resource-rich Marcellus Shale formation.

Grief over prison fire victim

A woman weeps Sunday as she waits for the remains of her loved one, a victim of the Comayagua deadly prison fire, to be identified in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. As many as 350 inmates perished in the fire that swept through the prison north of Tegucigalpa late last Tuesday.

BEIRUT — Gunmen in Syria staged a guerrilla-style ambush that killed a senior state prosecutor and a judge Sunday in an attack that suggested armed factions are growing bolder and more coordinated in their uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime. The roadway slayings — reported in an opposition-dominated northern region by the Syrian state news agency — came a day after a deadly hit-and-run attack on a political figure in the heart of

ing shift toward violent tactics by the opposition as it brings aboard more military defectors and seeks to tighten control over the small pieces of territory in its hands. The fears of a looming civil war have neighboring Jordan racing to finish a refugee camp near the Syrian border to handle a possible exodus of people fleeing for safety. Meanwhile, Egypt became the latest Arab nation to publicly snub Assad by ordering the withdrawal of its ambassador in Damascus.

The Syrian government has offered some concessions, including proposing a referendum next week that could allow more political voices to challenge Assad’s Baath Party. But the opposition demands nothing short of Assad’s resignation. And the regime has not eased off its attacks on the opposition forces, which it describes as “terrorists” carrying out a foreign conspiracy to destabilize the country. In Homs in central Syria, government forces sent in reinforcements as they shelled the rebel-held Baba Amr district that has been under near constant barrage for nearly two weeks, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The group said at least 14 people were killed Sunday across Syria, half of them by government troops. “I’m worried that Syria is going to slide into a civil war,” British Foreign Secreta-

ry William Hague told the BBC on Sunday. The U.N. last gave a death toll for the conflict in January, saying 5,400 people had been killed in 2011 alone. But hundreds more have been killed since, according to activist groups. An opposition group, Local Coordination Committees, says more than 7,300 have been killed since the uprising began more than 11 months ago. There is no way to independently verify the numbers, since Syria bans almost all foreign journalists and human rights organizations. The latest assassinations came on a road in the northwest province of Idlib, which has become a patchwork of areas held either by the government or mutinous soldiers who have safe-haven bases in nearby Turkey.

N. Korea threatens South

orth Korea will launch “merciless” strikes if South Korea goes through N with planned live-fire drills today in a

disputed front-line area near their disputed sea border, a North Korean officer warned in an interview with The Associated Press. North Korea doesn’t want a war but its people are always ready to “dedicate their blood to defend their inviolable territory,” officer Sin Chol Ung from the North“s Korean People’s Security Forces told AP on Sunday as South Korean troops prepared to hold the drills in an area that was the target of a deadly artillery attack in 2010. South Korea is scheduled to stage regular one-day artillery drills from front-line islands in waters off the western coast that North Korea claims as its territory. South Korea informed Pyongyang of the training plan on Sunday, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

Mom, baby, man killed

A wanted man kidnapped his estranged girlfriend at gunpoint along with her 1-year-old she was pushing in a stroller, Cleveland police said Sunday, and all three were found shot to death hours later. Police said the couple had dated for about two months and that the woman, Latasha Jackson, 19, was trying to end the relationship. Jackson and daughter Chaniya Wynn were walking with Jackson’s 14-year-old brother around noon Saturday when they encountered the man, Thomas Lorde. The girl’s father told police Lorde said he was going to kill Jackson and take the child. BOSTON

Inhalable caffeine probed

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials plan to investigate whether inhalable caffeine sold in lipstick-sized canisters is safe for consumers and if its manufacturer was right to brand it as a dietary supplement. AeroShot went on the market late last month in Massachusetts and New York, and it’s also available in France. Consumers put one end of the canister in their mouths and breathe in, releasing a fine powder that dissolves almost instantly. Each grey-and-yellow plastic canister contains B vitamins, plus 100 milligrams of caffeine powder, about the equivalent of the caffeine in a large cup of coffee. AeroShot didn’t require FDA review before hitting the U.S. market because it’s sold as a dietary supplement. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

Trial for $2 pumpkin theft

A 23-year-old college student from New Mexico is scheduled to go to trial for allegedly stealing a small pumpkin worth $2. KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, N.M., reported Lauren Medina will go before a jury and Moriarity Magistrate Judge Steve Jones on Tuesday. She is accused of taking the pumpkin in October 2011 from McCall’s Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty. Her sister, Annette Atencio, said Medina spent $75 on food that day but forgot to pay for the pumpkin she picked up as she was leaving. Atencio said her sister offered to pay but was refused and then handcuffed. Atencio said she’s in disbelief that the theft charge against her sister was not dropped. She said her sister could have pleaded guilty and be given probation, but refused.

The hearse carrying the body of Whitney Houston arrives Sunday at Fairview Cemetery for her burial in Westfield, N.J.

Private burial is held for singer

Whitney Houston laid to rest next to her father in Westfield, N.J., after brief ceremony. The Associated Press

WESTFIELD, N.J. — Whitney Houston was laid to rest Sunday at a brief private ceremony in New Jersey, the end of a weekend that saw the pop star’s family and friends gather at a star-studded funeral to mourn her loss while celebrating her career. Fans and onlookers gathered in several places along the route the motorcade took from the Newark funeral home to the cemetery about 20 miles away in Westfield, where Houston was buried next to her father, who died in 2003. The 48-year-old singer died Feb. 11 in California, hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. No cause of death has been determined.

On Saturday, she was mourned at an invitation-only funeral at the church in Newark where she sang in the choir as a child. She was remembered by the biggest names in the muHouston sic: Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys sang, and industry mogul Clive Davis was among those who spoke, as was Kevin Costner, Houston’s co-star in “The Bodyguard.” The funeral was closed to fans, who were not allowed within blocks of the church. Still, many came to Newark to take part in what ways they could, some from as far as Miami and Washington, D.C. Fans gathered again near the funeral home Sunday morning, and some even slowly ran alongside the hearse as it began the journey to Houston’s gravesite. Several yelled out “We love you, Whit-

ney” as the hearse, which had a black-andwhite headshot of the star in a window, slowly drove away. Barbara Davis, 53, of Newark, said she had been waiting outside the funeral home since 8:30 a.m., hoping to get a glimpse of Houston’s final trip. “To be here at her home-going is an honor and a blessing,” Davis told The Star-Ledger of Newark. Also among the crowd was Newark resident Eva Aquino and her two granddaughters, ages 10 and 13. All three stood on a street corner as the hearse passed by, and they used cellphones to snap photos of the procession. The girls were wearing T-shirts and buttons of Houston that their grandmother had bought from vendors outside the funeral home Saturday. “We came here and bought all these things of her to cherish the memories,” said 13-year-old Nalani Velez of Kearny.

Envoy says pope consistent on stopping abuse

Archbishop Charles Brown praises the pontiff in his first public address since taking up his post 3 days ago. By SHAWN POGATCHNIK Associated Press

DUBLIN — Pope Benedict XVI has been “relentless and consistent” in seeking to oust child abusers from the priesthood worldwide, the pontiff’s new American envoy to Ireland said Sunday in his first homily here. Archbishop Charles Brown, a 52-yearold Manhattan native and veteran Vatican insider, was making his first public address since officially taking up his post as Irish papal nuncio three days ago. “From the beginning, Pope Benedict was resolute and determined to put into place changes which would give the church the ability to deal more effectively with those who abuse trust. ... Pope Benedict has been relentless and consistent on this front,” Brown told worshippers and diplomatic guests at a service at Dublin’s Pro-Cathedral. The first-time diplomat faces a delicate repair job in Ireland, a traditionally Catholic nation that has seen Mass attendance plummet in line with nearly two decades of pedophile-priest scandals.

Pope Benedict XVI celebrates a Mass Sunday in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican.

Last year Prime Minister Enda Kenny accused the Vatican of overseeing a cover-up culture that encouraged the rape of children. The Vatican took two months to issue a legalistic rebuttal that sidestepped its refusal to help a series of Irish state-ordered investigations. Ireland then closed its Vatican embassy but insisted this was purely a cost-cut-

ting measure, a claim widely disbelieved in Ireland since the country’s ongoing struggle to stave off national bankruptcy. Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, widely considered to be Ireland’s most reform-minded Catholic leader, told reporters he expected that Ireland and the Vatican would compromise on arrangements to open a new, cheaper Irish embassy in Rome. Ireland still operates one embassy in the Italian capital, but the Vatican insists that countries fund completely separate diplomatic facilities. Speaking to reporters outside the cathedral, Martin said he was confident that the Vatican would permit Ireland to open “a leaner embassy” that is separate but on the same site as Ireland’s Italian embassy. In his homily, Brown reiterated the Vatican’s longheld line that its leaders have never obstructed Irish efforts to identify and punish several hundred child abusers in parishes and religious orders. Brown noted his own 17-year work as an official of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the powerful Vatican body that enforces church policies — including the removal of pedophiles from the priesthood. Benedict, then known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, oversaw the body from 1981 until his promotion to pope in 2005.

DES MOINES, Iowa — If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for president, he’ll face the urgent task of inspiring the party’s conservative core and rallying them to beat President Barack Obama. Judging by his performances in the primaries and caucuses so far, and the challenge he faces next week, he’s got his work cut out for him. Even Republicans who think he’ll be the nominee worry about whether he can generate the intensity required to beat the Democratic incumbent. These party leaders and activists, from the states voting Feb. 28 and the most contested ones ahead in the fall, say Romney has made strides toward Romney addressing this problem. But, they say, he needs to do more to convince the Republican base that he’s running to fundamentally reverse the nation’s course. “I think Romney will be the nominee, but there is still tremendous work to be done,” said Sally Bradshaw, a Florida Republican and adviser to former Gov. Jeb Bush. Romney leads in the delegate count for the nomination, and by a wide margin in private polling ahead of the Arizona primary Feb. 28. But the rising challenge from former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in the contest also that day in Michigan, where Romney was born and raised, underscores doubts about Romney’s ability to ignite fervor in the GOP base. He nearly tied Santorum in Iowa, although entrance polls showed that more of Santorum’s backers than Romney’s said they were strongly behind their chosen candidate. Romney lost the primary in South Carolina last month to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Santorum swept caucuses Feb. 7 in Colorado and Minnesota, and the nonbinding Missouri primary. Meanwhile, Santorum on Sunday condemned what he called President Barack Obama’s world view that “elevates the Earth above man” and requires insurers to pay for prenatal tests that will encourage more abortions. A day after telling an Ohio audience that Obama’s agenda is based on “some phony theology, not a theology based on the Bible,” the GOP presidential candidate said he wasn’t criticizing the president’s Christianity.

said that number could rise, because staff members are still reviewing reports submitted last month. But lawsuits filed in Allegheny, Dauphin, Delaware and York counties take issue with the department’s interpretation that anyone convicted of the listed offenses should be barred from employment in a public or private school. The school employees argue that the wording of the law suggests that it applies only to future employees. “It even uses the word ‘applicant’ in the very section the Department of Education is relying upon,” said attorney Thomas Scott, who represents one of the plaintiffs. The employees also argue that even if the courts decide that the law applies to current employees, it is unconstitutional, violating the due process rights of employees through its retroactive appli-

cation and penalizing them for crimes for which they were already punished. Joseph Miller, chief counsel of the education department, said the employees’ arguments don’t protect children from people convicted of serious offenses, which was what lawmakers intended. He also cited a prior state Supreme Court ruling holding that in protecting the safety of others, the same employment rules apply to prospective and current employees.

tomers,” he said. Britain’s Foreign Office declined comment, and there was no immediate response from French officials. The semiofficial Mehr news agency said exports were suspended to the two countries Sunday. It also said the National Iranian Oil Co. has sent letters to some European refineries with an ultimatum to either sign longterm contracts of two to five years or be cut off.

Mehr did not specify which countries were sent the ultimatum, but Spain, Italy and Greece are among Europe’s biggest buyers of Iranian oil. Iran’s targeting of Britain and France appeared to be a political decision to punish the two countries for supporting tougher sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program. Last week, state media said Iran was planning to cut off oil exports to six EU nations, including

France, but later reports said the nations were only told that Iran has no problem finding replacement customers for the European shipments. Also on Sunday , the secretary general of Iran’s central bank said a decision by SWIFT, an international banking clearinghouse used by nearly every country and major corporation in the world, to shut Iran out from its respected network will not harm the country.

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has halted oil shipments to Britain and France, the Oil Ministry said Sunday, in an apparent pre-emptive blow against the European Union after the bloc imposed sanctions on Iran’s crucial fuel exports. The EU imposed tough sanctions against Iran last month, which included a freeze of the country’s central bank assets and

disputed nuclear program, which the West fears is aimed at developing atomic weapons. Iran denies the charges, and says its program is for peaceful purposes. The spokesman for Iran’s Oil Ministry, Ali Reza Nikzad-Rahbar, said on the ministry’s website Sunday that “crude oil exports to British and French companies have been halted.” “We have our own customers and have no problem to sell and export our crude oil to new cus-

an oil embargo set to begin in July. Iran’s Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi had warned earlier this month that Tehran could cut off oil exports to “hostile” European nations. The 27-nation EU accounts for about 18 percent of Iran’s oil exports. However, the Iranian action was not likely to have any significant direct impact on European supplies because both Britain and France had already moved last year to sharply curtail oil purchases from Tehran to less than 3 percent of their daily needs. The EU sanctions, along with other punitive measures imposed by the U.S., are part of Western efforts to derail Iran’s

the exploratory wells it sunk in Luzerne County wouldn’t produce marketable quantities of the natural resource. But elsewhere in northern tier counties drilling continues and the coalition has been monitoring the activity. It’s not opposed to the exploration of natural gas, but the coalition wants the government to make sure the industry is doing it right, said Scott Cannon, a coalition board member. “We don’t believe that the state is prepared to handle this,” he said. So the coalition educates people about the industry

None of those activities is nearly as important as socialization, said Director of Events Mindy Piccotti. “What we do with socialization makes a difference,” she said. “And that’s what makes us different.” In addition to being heavily involved in Hunts for Healing, Mindy and her husband, John, own Ringneck Ridge. In 2007, they were presented with an opportunity to purchase a cabin tailored for those with special needs. Located across from their property, the home, Piccotti said, had immediate appeal. “As soon as I stepped inside I knew I had to do something with this,” she said. That home would become the main cabin used during the majority of Hunts for Healing events. The events usually go throughout the weekend and can be any kind of outdoor activ-

HANOVER TWP. - Township police reported the following: • Jamie Lee Trocki, 25, of Carverton Road, Kingston Township, faces a number of charges after a traffic stop on Lyndwood Avenue on Friday. Trocki was charged with possession of marijuana, giving false identification to law enforcement, driving with a suspended license and a stop sign violation. • A man was bitten by a pit bull Sunday in the 1200 block of Mark Drive. He was taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for a deep laceration to his hand. The investigation into the dog bite is continuing. and the effects of drilling on the environment and local communities so they can in turn educate elected officials, he added. The funds from the concert will pay for speakers and presentations put on by the coalition. Dr. Alfonso Rodriguez, a kidney specialist who became president of the coalition in August, said the coalition has speakers from Colorado and Texas scheduled in the coming months. Rodriguez who lives in Dallas with his wife, Mary, secretary of the coalition, said the region already suffered from the ravages of the coal-mining industry. “I couldn’t understand why the community would allow another exploitative industry in and do the same thing,” he said. ity the soldiers are willing and able to do. “We work to ease them into events that they are comfortable doing,” she said. “We keep in mind that injuries play a role in what people can and can’t do.” Sometimes soldiers suffer injuries that go beyond the physical. “We have a lot of participants that are facing the challenge of emotional conflict,” she said. That’s where Hunts for Healing’s seasoned mentors come in. The volunteer mentors are also former Hunts for Healing participants themselves. They team up with new members and focus on guiding them physically and spiritually. After arriving at the preserve, mentors work immediately on making participants feel at home. “Once they walk through these doors they’re family,” she said. Speaking about the goal of the program’s mentors, Piccotti said they hope to hear one thing by the time the weekend is over. “I feel at home,” she said. “If we hear them say that, we know we’ve done our job.” buses are added during the park’s peak summer season.

Revolutionary war by Gen. George Washington. The high court will hear the case Wednesday, which is Washington’s 280th birthday. “They’re committing fraud. They’re impersonating somebody else. They take on attributes of somebody else, attributes of a hero who served honorably,” said Pam Sterner, whose college term paper calling for the law wound up in the hands of members of Congress. “When you do that, impersonating someone else, that’s fraud, not freedom of speech.” Civil liberties groups, writers, publishers and news media outlets, including The Associated Press, have told the justices they worry the law, and especially the administration’s defense of it, could lead to more attempts by government to regulate speech. It long has been a federal crime to wear unearned medals, but mere claims of being decorated were beyond the reach of law. The House has more than once voted to name a post office after men who claimed awards they never received. The Air Force named an award after a man who falsely claimed to have survived the Bataan Death March and been awarded the Silver Star in World War II. The Stolen Valor Act aimed to solve that problem, and garnered significant support in Congress during a time of war. “The admiration and respect for the military increased dramatically after 9/11 and the false claims, as well,” said Thomas A. Cottone Jr., a retired FBI agent who investigated phony award cases. Alvarez made his claims by way of introducing himself as an elected member of the Three Valleys Municipal Water District in Pomona, Calif. There is nothing to suggest that he received anything in exchange or that listeners especially believed him. Even Alvarez’ lawyers acknowledged their client sometimes has trouble telling the truth. “Xavier Alvarez lied,” they declare in the first sentence of their Supreme Court brief and go on to recount six separate lies in the next few lines. He lied when he claimed he played hockey for the Detroit Red Wings, married a Mexican starlet who made paparazzi swoon, was an engineer, rescued the American ambassador during the Iranian hostage crisis and was shot when he went back for the U.S. flag. Alvarez also lied, they said, when he talked about his military service. But the lies Alvarez told harmed no one, they said, so what he did couldn’t be considered fraud. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco struck down the law as an unconstitutional restraint on free speech and said the government might instead invest in an awards database that would make it harder for people to lay claim to medals they never won. Last month, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver upheld the law in a separate case, saying the First Amendment does not always protect false statements. The issue might never have reached this stage if not for the efforts of Sterner, and her husband, Doug. He is a decorated Vietnam veteran who has made it his work in recent years to ensure that service members get the recognition they deserve and expose those who falsely claim acts of heroism under fire. Rather than wait for the government to act, Doug Sterner has entered nearly 100,000 award citations since Civil War in his online database. Pam Sterner in her early 40s wrote a paper that grew out of her husband’s frustrations over phony award claimants whose worst punishment was public embarrassment. That paper eventually led to the Stolen Valor Act.

WORLD OPINION

Achieving statehood requires united Palestine

T

HE REVIVED accord between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas puts Palestinian unity back on track and therefore is most welcome. Without it, there is no hope of progress or peace. But no one should imagine that from here on in, the task will be easy. The new deal follows on from last May’s agreement in Cairo, where both sides seemed on the brink of coming together. That process floundered because Hamas rejected Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ choice of Salam Fayyad as prime minister in the new coalition administration. Fayyad, who has very effectively restructured the security forces on the West Bank, has now been dropped from the ticket. For his part, Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal has accepted Abbas as head of the coalition government whose full makeup was to be announced in Cairo

over the weekend. In this position Abbas will oversee elections across Palestine, elections in which he has pledged not to stand again for the presidency. If the new Palestinian coalition can hold together until presidential and parliamentary elections, then whoever wins will have received a democratic mandate that the outside world cannot ignore a second time. It was Washington’s purblind refusal to accept the Hamas victory in 2006 that compounded Palestine’s tragedy and also exposed President George W. Bush’s enthusiasm for democracy as the hypocritical sham that it was. The internationally accepted two-state solution, to which even the Israelis are nominally committed, can only come about when there is unity among the Palestinians. Arab News Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Not going to do this again, but if it gets us through the year, gets this issue off the table, it’s worth doing this way.” U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham The veteran South Carolina Republican explained why GOP lawmakers acquiesced last week to a contentious payroll tax cut extension for 160 million Americans, even though it results in a $101. 1 billion increase in the deficit for the current fiscal year.

Eurozone bailout vital

T

HE ONE COMFORT for the British government after the most recent dismal unemployment figures – at 2.67 million, the highest since 1994 – is that the outlook is no less vile elsewhere. France, whose economy grew last year, has a rate just under 10 percent, higher than our 8.4 percent. But that still leaves the government with hard questions to answer about its economic strategy. The combination of deficit reduction with a massive program of quantitative easing – pumping new money into the banks – might keep interest rates low, but as a means of stimulating growth it is a good deal less successful than ministers hoped. The governor of the Bank of En-

gland said that growth prospects here were partly dependent on eurozone debt reduction. That’s not much comfort, given the latest crisis in Greece. It would be in everyone’s interests if Greece were given funding to meet the repayment on its next bond redemption in March, but that would not be the end of the matter. More bailouts will follow. Granted, the country’s creditors, notably France and Germany, are not only bailing out Greece, but also their own banks, which have large amounts of Greek debt, but patience is wearing thin. BNP Parisbas has written down the value of its Greek debt by 75 percent; others will follow. London Evening Standard

Don’t bank on bailouts

A

S GREEK FINANCE Minister Evangelos Venizelos noted, Greece’s parliament opted for “the bad to avoid the worst,” voting for austerity measures to help stave off bankruptcy – for now. In a nation of 10.7 million people, the package will drastically cut pensions, reduce the minimum wage by 22 percent and eliminate 150,000 publicsector jobs by 2015. There was no realistic alternative. Greece has endured four years of recession that has seen unemployment soar to 20 per-

cent and youth unemployment to 48 percent. But a messy default would open the way to greater instability and misery, a mass exodus of investment, widespread business failures and the loss of savings. Those calling for a fresh emphasis on growth and who argue that austerity alone will not solve the crisis have a point. Such growth, however, must flow from productive enterprises, innovation, hard work and exports, not government stimulus from further borrowings. The Australian, Sydney

I

n the 1950s I was fortunate to take a popular course at King’s College called “The Philosophy of Communism.” The first semester taught us the basis of Marxism, his adaptation of Hegel’s philosophy of contradiction and the communist application of said philosophy, entrenched by Lenin and Stalin. (For example, the doctrine that makes absolutely no distinction between lying and the truth). The second semester explained how disastrous the system is, using Aristotle and St. Thomas’ critiques of Marxism and communism, as formulated in a Jesuit text and taught by our brilliant King’s professor. Throughout my life, I have used this knowledge to easily predict and refute Marxist/communist behavior. I was hardly surprised by the liberal Associated Press story in The Times Leader on Feb. 12, falsifying President Obama as our magnanimous leader owing to his “retreat” following his month-long Catholic onslaught. I predicted this exact scenario prior to Obama’s so-called Catholic “compromise” in several letters I wrote prior to his “mea culpa cave.” This does not make me a genius, but it sure makes me grateful that King’s provided me the ammunition to defend the Catholic Church from barbarians. Many Catholics have breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that “Obamacare” now provides Catholic safeguards, though almost all of them haven’t even read the 2,200 page law. If they would, they’d find that this unconstitutional law, if it stands, will be the death of individual freedom and logically lead not only to an exponential increase in abortions, but also will certainly remove all restrictions against euthanasia, now forbidden by the church.

Writer backs Kaufer’s campaign for legislator

I

attended Aaron Kaufer’s campaign kickoff. At least 100 people packed the American Legion in Kingston to see Aaron announce his candidacy for state representative of the 120th District. Over the past several years I’ve gotten to know Aaron very well. We have spent time working on campaigns and having many political conversations. On the night of his campaign announcement, everyone was able to see what I’ve seen all along: that you would be hard-pressed to find a man as intelligent and mature as young Mr. Kaufer. Aaron’s idea to repeal legislators’ automatic cost-of-living adjustments hits close to home. As a senior, I have to sit by and wait to hear whether I am getting Social Security cost-of-living increases, while our

state legislators get them automatically. This is not right, and I will fight alongside this young man to repeal this law. Aaron’s enthusiasm to serve the public is exactly what we need in a legislator. His passion, dedication and knowledge are not only impressive, but also energizing. We need someone young and passionate to rally the residents of this district. We need someone who will challenge the business-as-usual approach that we see in government on all levels. We need new leadership. We need Aaron Kaufer. Jean Marie Ash Kingston

Home health services key to care of elderly

E

ven as Pennsylvania’s budget faces deep cuts, we must find resources to care for a growing elderly population. Between 2000 and 2030, the number of Pennsylvanians age 65 and older will increase by more than 50 percent. At the end of that period, almost one in four state residents will occupy that age group. These senior citizens will need more health care; but how will we provide it efficiently and effectively? I believe home health is the solution, because it keeps the elderly out of hospitals, saves money for Medicare and is overwhelmingly preferred by patients. Despite the expected growth in older residents, Medicare home health services are facing budget cuts in Washington that could limit access to care for elderly Pennsylvanians. One problem is that a criminal element has entered the business, costing Medicare millions of dollars. Home health providers here and across the country are fighting this fraud and abuse through proposed federal legislation to strengthen the integrity of the Medicare home health program, drive out unscrupulous practitioners and enhance quality of care. If the legislation passes, Medicare could in the future save billions of dollars, and Pennsylvanians could continue to receive good care. As a home health professional, I hope that U.S. Sen. Bob Casey will throw his strong support behind this important home health initiative. I know that our growing senior citizen population will be grateful.

Wisconsin labor reform a good model to follow

W

hen the power and influence of labor unions are diminished, the good far outweighs the bad. An excellent example of this is in Wisconsin. Last year, led by Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin enacted a law that practically eliminates the collective bargaining power of most public employee unions. When this law was passed many critics predicted nothing but doom and gloom. These critics have been proven wrong. The new law, known as Act 10, has allowed Wisconsin to eliminate a large budget deficit without increasing taxes. In additional, Act 10 has helped to ease the fiscal burden on most local governments throughout the state. Critics of the Wisconsin plan predicted that it would lead to many teachers and other municipal workers being laid off. Actually, more teachers have been hired since Act 10 became law. In addition, the local governing bodies such as the counties and municipalities have been able to stay solvent without having to resort to massive layoffs. The Wisconsin plan is a good model for labor reform. Pennsylvania would benefit by adopting a similar plan. We can start this reform immediately, since every Pennsylvania House seat is up for election this year. Willie Speare Scranton

W-B Little League teams merge for new season

I

t is with great pride that I announce the merger of the Mayflower/Heights Little League and the South Wilkes-Barre Little League for the upcoming season. The Mayflower Little League and the Heights Little League have been geographically bound for a few years and beginning this year will be included with the South Wilkes-Barre Little League area. Combining resources and volunteer efforts should make the new league more vibrant and provide a much better playing environment for the players in every division. The newly chartered league will be called “South Wilkes-Barre Little League.” I expect the merger will bring exciting baseball for years to come. The new league will continue to use an interleague format relative to game schedules and neighboring league involvement. The new and returning players living in the Mayflower/Heights area will now register with the South Wilkes-Barre Little League. Please watch for announcements in the newspaper and fliers in the appropriate schools. Joe DiMaggio Wilkes-Barre

www.timesleader.com The Gerrity family, owners of Jerry & Sons Market in Nanticoke and purveyors of kielbasa, are fifth and sixth generation grocers. From left to right: Jan Louise Gerrity, Joanne Gerrity, Gerald ‘John’ Gerrity Jr., and Gerald ‘Johnny’ Gerrity III. This area prides itself on its ethnic food, and specialty butcher shops, bakeries and markets are the high keepers of that tradition.

TASTES Continued from Page 1A

Joanne Gerrity and her husband, Gerald, a fifth-generation grocer, have been running Jerry & Sons Market, a Nanticoke meat shop specializing in kielbasa and other Polish-style meats, for 22 years. “The way we think we survive is, you give a good product with small-town service,” she said. “We know our customers, most of the time we know them by name. We know their order before they come in the store; we know how they want their meat sliced.” Dr. Joseph Costello of Pittston said he has been buying meats from Sabatelle’s Market, a meat and Italian import shop on Pittston’s Main Street, for about 25 years. “You get to know the people,” he said. “It’s like finding a restaurant you really like; you just keep coming back.” Jane Sabatelle, who owns the market with her husband, Rocky, and son Jason, said personal touches like cutting meat to order and making home deliveries have helped the store through economic conditions not ideal for the steak and imported cheese business. “We have our own niche and a lot of them are just very loyal local customers,” Sabatelle said. “… I can tell you who’s going to have a baby, who’s going to high school, all that. We’re hanging on in light of this economy and we’re thankful to have the following that we have.” The holidays also help.

Inspired by a story she saw on ABC, Neubauer decided to organize a bus trip to the nation’s capital. “The TV show flew people from the Midwest to D.C., so I figured we could at least do a bus trip since we’re so close,” she said.

Be it kielbasa at Christmas or meat pie at Easter, even people who don’t usually shop at import stores or specialty meat shops gravitate toward their ethnic roots on at the holidays. “My customer base during the holidays is grandma and grandpa, because they’re cooking the meal; they’re bringing the family together,” Gerrity said. This area’s still very traditional when it comes to the holidays,” said Antoinette O’Donnell, owner of Cheese Store & More, a Hazleton Italian market. “People still look for the ricotta cheese and the toma cheese and the basket cheese. “The biggest change that I’ve seen is, you see a lot of younger people grasping on to some of the traditions they grew up with. People that come in and say, ‘I want to try to make my mom’s Easter pie and I’ve never done it before. Can you help me out?’ ”

Census data on the growth of the county’s Indian population wasn’t available, but Lakesh Patel, co-owner of the newly opened India Bazar market in Wilkes-Barre Township, said it’s on the rise, and there are now more than 600 Indian families in the area. Patel, who has formerly owned gas stations and an Indian market in Scranton, said he opened his store to serve that community. “I have confidence I’m doing really good here,” Patel said. “We go to a temple and everybody knows about the store.” Geography has been a contributing factor, as the area is close enough to importers and wholesalers in New York City and New Jersey to allow shop owners to set up reliable chains of supply. Raziya Shroff, owner of A-1 Subzi Mandi Indian Grocery Store in Wilkes-Barre Township, gets weekly shipments of long beans, Chinese eggplant and other hard-to-find vegetables, and Phillip Trout, owner of Carib-

an fare isn’t the only authentic ethnic food sold in the area. In the last decade many shops specializing in Spanish provisions and a few dealing in cuisines as diverse as Indian and Caribbean have opened alongside their predecessors. Part of the change has been demographic. Luzerne County’s Hispanic population grew by more than 5 percent, or close to 20,000 residents, between 2000 and 2010, according to U.S. Census data. Bodegas and mercados have arisen to serve the burgeoning community in places such as downtown Hazleton. Karina Chavez and her family opened the Wilkes-Barre Deli and Grocery on Park Avenue in Wilkes-Barre two years ago, selling Goya canned produce and traditional Mexican sweets alongside more standard deli sandwiches. “We have a lot of things that people find back in their home Population drives change that they don’t find here,” Chavez But Italian and eastern Europe- said.

Since last year’s event, the now 19-year-old Neubauer has remained close with many of the veterans. “They’re like my family now,” she said. Response from donors was so positive that nearly $2,000 was left over after last year’s project. “It made for a great head start this time,” she said. “And it made it really easy to do it again.” Neubauer said the cost per bus with food is roughly $2,300. Each bus carries 50 people, and

Response from donors was so positive that nearly $2,000 was left over after last year’s project.

Neubauer said she hopes to organize up to three buses. Planning and fundraising is a fulltime job itself, she said. After getting home from a morning of classes and an afternoon at her part-time job, Neubauer gets right to work on event fliers, posters and banners. Afterward, she travels around the Mountain Top and WilkesBarre areas distributing and collecting from Vets to DC dona-

tion jars. “This week I’ll go to local businesses, next week bigger corporations and the following week I’ll do restaurants,” she said. Money raised will go toward transportation, food, beverages, wheelchairs and other items. In addition to aides and volunteers, a registered nurse will be on hand to accompany the trip. Neubauer said the feedback she gets from the veterans is the most rewarding part of it all. “They were so surprised that an 18-year-old would do something like this,” she said. “But it’s my way of saying thank you.” “I just don’t think they hear it enough,” she said.

bean Paradise Restaurant and Grocery in Wilkes-Barre, makes weekly trips to the city for salt snapper, parggie and doctor fish. Other ethnic markets have come and gone over the years. Danny’s Fresh Market, a Spanish grocery store, recently opened and closed within a year on Wilkes-Barre’s South Main Street, and several Asian grocers have failed to keep a long-term presence in the city. To succeed as a purveyor of ethnic foods requires more than offering something different, and attracting the attention of other customers certainly can’t hurt. Not just for ethnics Shroff said she opened A-1 Subzi Mandi four years ago with much the same idea as Patel, serving a growing Indian population. “I used to go to New York to bring back so many vegetables, and I couldn’t go so often so I would bring back more and more, and then it would go to

waste,” she said. “Eventually, I said, let me try (opening a market).” While about 60 percent of her customers are Indian, the rest are not – something she never expected when she first opened. Shroff said area residents are getting more adventurous, not only with the prepared food they eat but with what they’ll try cooking at home, something she partially attributes to the growing popularity of cooking and food-tourism cable TV shows. “I think nowadays people are willing to try different food, and a little spice in their food,” Shroff said. “It is starting to change. People before never tried anything … I did not think I would have so many American customers.” Trout specializes in Jamaican products and prepared foods, but said he couldn’t survive on a Jamaican customer base alone. “We have a few (Jamaican residents) but not many,” Trout said. “But as I say they’re not the only persons who buy things here. You have people go to Jamaica, they try the jerk chicken and they come back; they try to make it themselves.” Whether the region embraces these purveyors of the new and different is a question history will answer, but their owners are optimistic, and in this case a love of the old might inspire a hunger for the new. “I’ve started to check (other markets) out,” Jim Bozzuto of Pittston said while shopping at Sabatelle’s last week. “Because of this one I found a really nice Mexican market in Wilkes-Barre.”

Candymaker taking bite out of treats The Associated Press

Snicker lovers will need to be satisfied with less. Mars, the maker of Snickers, Twix, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Galaxy and Dove candy bars, announced it will stop selling chocolates that have more than 250 calories by the end of next year. This is bad news for fans of the company’s king-size products. By 2014, its now 510-calorie kingsize bars will become a thing of the past. The company, which in 2007 pledged to no longer market chocolate products directly to

children under age 12, said the change is part of a health-and-nutrition effort. “We are aware of the high levels of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in some regions where we operate, and we are taking steps to enhance the nutritional content of our snacks,” the company said in a statement. “We are renovating our chocolate products to reduce saturated fats and decrease calories per serving.” To achieve the desired calorie mark, the chocolate maker will produce smaller and thinner candy bars.

The Lin express gets back on track

Knicks guard bounces back after suffering first loss as a starter, scores 28 points.

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — Linsanity lives. Forget the off night that had NBA fans worldwide wondering if the Jeremy Lin story was too good to be true. It’s still plenty good, all right. The Harvard sensation was back at his whirling ways Sunday, and the stage couldn’t have been better — against the defending champions on national TV.

“Looking back, it’s like I was watching them win the championship last year, and that’s obviously where this team wants to go,” Lin said. “This is helpful to us, not just to me but to us, just to be able to see where our team can go and what we can become, and I think that’s the biggest takeaway from tonight,” he said. Lin already owns the highlights and headlines, and now he has some new admirers after bouncing back from a nine-turnover performance against lowly New Orleans by dominating a AP PHOTO Dallas defense that made even LeBron James look ordinary in The New York Knicks’ Jeremy Lin celebrates in the final mo-

Lin was Lin, and that was good enough for the New York Knicks to win. Hours after the opening of “Saturday Night Live” spoofed the Lin phenomenon, the point guard had 28 points and a careerhigh 14 assists to carry the Knicks to a 104-97 victory that ended the Dallas Mavericks’ sixgame winning streak.

Off to a fast start

Crowns are up for grabs Postseason will begin for four teams with playoffs for league titles tonight and Tuesday. By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

The third time will be the charm for two Wyoming Valley Conference boys basketball teams in the divisional playoffs. Up first is the WVC Division I second-half title contest between Hazleton Area and Crestwood. Game time is 7 p.m. today at the Berwick Middle School, which is adjacent to the high school. On Tuesday, Dallas and Tunkhannock play at 7:30 p.m. at Lake-Lehman High School for the WVC Division II overall crown. Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for students. The Hazleton Area (6-1 Div. I, 18-4) and Crestwood (6-1, 13-9) comes as a bit of a surprise. Hazleton Area won five of its first six second-half games by an average of 18.2 points, including a 49-35 victory over Crestwood on Jan. 27. It won the early matchup with Crestwood 42-40 on Jan. 10. The Cougars, though, squandered a 12-point halftime lead Friday against Wyoming Valley West and fell 58-54. They had routed the Spartans twice previously, 71-43 and 70-46 in a special playoff game for the Division I first-half championship. After the loss to Hazleton Area, Crestwood won six straight by double digits to force today’s playoff game. If the Comets win today, it will force another game with Hazleton Area for the overall title. That game will likely be Wednesday. See BOYS, Page 4B

Carl Edwards gives a thumbs-up in his car after his qualifying run for the NASCAR Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday in Daytona Beach, Fla. Edwards won the pole

Carl Edwards grabs pole for Sunday’s race By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Carl Edwards fell bitterly short in last season’s bid to win the NASCAR championship. He’s starting 2012 out front. Edwards, who lost the championship last season on a tiebreaker to Tony Stewart, won the pole for the season-opening Daytona 500, beating teammate Greg Biffle for the top starting spot during a windy Sunday qualifying session at Daytona International Speedway. Edwards turned a lap at 194.738 mph — the fastest pole-

winning speed since Jeff Gordon’s lap of195.067 mph in1999. Biffle was second at 194.087 to give Ford and Roush Fenway Racing a sweep of the front row. “It’s so neat to come down here and to be so fast and to really have fun qualifying here,” Edwards said. “These are the best race cars we’ve ever had at Daytona. Coming down here I didn’t even consider the pole, so this is

huge.” Biffle was not as thrilled. “I’m a little disappointed,” Biffle said. “I hate the wind. I guess if you’re out sailing, it’s good. It was singing down the back, but coming down the front I just got a big gust of wind coming off of (turn) four ... I knew I didn’t have it.” Edwards and Biffle were the only two drivers to lock down their starting positions in Daytona’s unique qualifying format. The rest of the starting order for next Sunday’s race is set through Thursday’s twin 150mile qualifying races.

But only four starting spots are up for grabs. NASCAR guarantees starting spots to the top 35 teams from last season, three spots go to the fastest drivers in time trials not already locked in and one spot goes to a previous NASCAR champion. The drivers who earned starting spots in qualifying were defending race winner Trevor Bayne, Tony Raines, David Stremme and former NASCAR champion Terry Labonte.

Layer of uncertainty hovers over back of Phils’ rotation By MATT GELB The Philadelphia Inquirer

CLEARWATER, Fla. — This is what life after Four Aces looks like: Vance Worley, sporting a new bushy hairdo, is the subject of ribbing from major-leaguers because he’s one of them. Joe Blanton, freed from the purgatory of solitary rehabilitation, is step-for-step with his teammates. Kyle Kendrick, owner of a brand-new $7.5 million contract, is holding a makeshift news conference in the cafeteria. There are more questions than a spring ago, when photo shoots

and grandiose predictions dominated a pitching staff’s time. A thin layer of uncertainty hovers over the back of the Phillies rotation. At the top, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels are unmatched. Pitching coach Rich Dubee dubbed Worley the fourth starter as camp officially opened Sunday. Every discussion about Blanton requires the word “if. An See PHILLIES, Page 5B

OPINION TIM DAHLBERG

Even frozen by disease, Ali is still The Greatest LAS VEGAS — They gathered in the bowels of the arena where most of the great fights of the last two decades have taken place, old men now all sharing one shining moment from years gone by. They had come to honor The Greatest, though whether Muhammad Ali remembered who they were or knew what it was all about was a matter of speculation that on this night would go unanswered. Some, like Chuck Wepner, couldn’t stop talking about the night they won their own personal lottery — a spot across the ring from Ali. Nothing new there, since the Bayonne Bleeder has been talking about it to anyone else who will listen almost every day since. Others, like Leon Spinks, weren’t able to talk much at all. “Leon Spinks is here and he needs help,” Wepner said. “There are a lot of fighters who need help.” This was a night supposed to bring that help, both to fighters like Spinks and those fighting today. Millions would be raised in Ali’s name for the Cleveland Clinic’s new Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in downtown Las Vegas, where researchers are already busy trying to unlock the puzzles of damage to the human brain. A seat for dinner and the show at the MGM Grand hotel started at $1,500. UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta spent $1.1 million in an auction for the gloves Ali used against Floyd Patterson in1965 in the first heavyweight title fight in a city that would become synonymous with boxing. President Barack Obama wished Ali well in a video greeting, and Stevie Wonder was among those on hand to sing birthday wishes to the former heavyweight champion, who turned 70 last month. At the center of it all was an elderly man, mute and his face seemingly frozen as he sat at a table with his wife, Lonnie, and several other family members. Whether boxing caused Ali’s Parkinson’s is the subject of debate, but it was clear on this night the disease he has fought for three decades has taken a terrible toll on him. He was once a magnificent man with a sculptured body and a mouth that wouldn’t stay shut. He’s still magnificent in the way that his very presence envelopes and engulfs an arena like it did Saturday night, hushing highrollers and the elite of this gambling town in a way no other man could — and all without saying a word. They used to trot Joe Louis out like this in his final years, too, a heavyweight great and an American hero reduced to drooling in his wheelchair at ringside. With Ali, though, it seems different in a way if only because you get the feeling that the man who was the ultimate people person still enjoys being around people. “I’m not sad about him, just proud to know him,” George Foreman said. “When people ask me if he’s the greatest boxer ever, it’s an insult. He was the greatest everything, just a great man.” Foreman lost the biggest fight of his life to Ali, the stunner in Zaire that cost him the heavyweight title and for a long time derailed his life. He held a grudge for a long time, too, but it’s hard to be mad at Muhammad Ali no matter what he did to you in the ring. Ali was back in a makeshift ring on Sunday in the lobby of the MGM, where hundreds of people See ALI, Page 4B

Wainwright says he’s ready

JUPTER, Fla. — Adam Wainwright’s season-ending elbow injury last February was supposed to ruin the St. Louis Cardinals’ season. Now, the former 20-game winner is healthy again, ready to rejoin a rotation that was strong enough to win it all without him. That’s a major reason why the Cardinals are optimistic at the opening of their first spring training without Albert Pujols, Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan in a very long time. Even if the 6-foot-7, 230-pound Wainwright throws fewer than 200 innings, the estimate the Cardinals have used in their desire to play it safe with a right-hander not yet a year removed from elbow reconstruction, they view it as a major plus. The 30-year-old Wainwright was a workhorse before getting hurt last spring, totaling 266 1-3 innings in 200910.

TEMPE, Ariz. — C.J. Wilson parked his car and laughed while signing autographs for faceless fans who handed bats, balls and cards to the pitcher from the other side of a brick wall. An early rite of spring training complete, Wilson, one of the Angels’ new bigticket additions, headed to the clubhouse. “You’re the man, C.J.,” one fan yelled to the left-hander, who signed a $77.5 million contract in December. “Word,” Wilson said. He’s the man for one day, and one day only. Today, Albert Pujols arrives. The former St. Louis slugger, who rocked baseball this winter by signing a

roughly $250 million contract with the Angels and instantly transforming them into the team to beat, will report today to begin the next chapter of his career. The plans Pujols are for the three-time MVP to greet his new teammates, take some grounders at first base and then batting practice inside Tempe Diablo Stadium before holding a news conference at a resort hotel across the street. The Angels have booked an amphitheater to handle the expected media crush. Pujolspalooza begins. The 32-year-old’s locker, situated just inside the main clubhouse door and between the stalls of Bobby Abreu and Torii Hunter, was stacked Sunday with justout-of-the-box cleats, jerseys, jackets and everything else he’ll need for the next six weeks in Arizona. At least the

Angels’ red and white match the colors Pujols wore with the Cardinals. However, from the manager, to the league, to the fans, to the city he’ll now adopt as his in-season home, everything else will be brand new for Pujols. During his lunch break from meetings with coaches, Angels manager Mike Scioscia initially tried to act as if this was just a typical spring for his team. It’s anything but. “Being in the game this long, you’re always excited this time of year,” said Scioscia, who played 13 seasons for the Dodgers and is beginning his 13th season managing the Angels. “Spring training is really a fun time, seeing the guys again and getting them together and getting on the field. “I’ll admit there’s a little different excitement this year.” It’s been that way since Dec. 8, when Pujols agreed to the second-biggest contract in history and joined the Angels,

whose owner Arte Moreno spent a combined $331.5 million during the off-season remodeling his team into perennial power. Before connecting for his first homer for the Halos, Pujols has already altered his new club dramatically. He’s sold tickets and merchandise. He’s raised the Angels’ profile and their expectations. And, as one of the most feared hitters of his generation, Pujols has given them a frightful presence in the middle of their lineup, one that keeps pitchers awake at night. “He’s going to improve the offense single-handedly because he’s such a force,” said Wilson, who went 16-7 last season for the Rangers. “We saw that last year with St. Louis. If you take him out of that lineup, it’s not very threatening. But you put him in there and it’s ‘Oh man, we’ve got to pitch to (Lance) Berkman, (Matt) Halladay and (David) Freese.’ I think he will have the same effect here.

It’s official: Burnett is traded to Pittsburgh

Pitcher passed physical Sunday to complete trade that was agreed to Friday.

Tomko signs as camp opens

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Right-hander Brett Tomko signed a minor league deal with the Cincinnati Reds — the team that launched his 14-year career — and was invited to join them as they opened camp on Sunday. Tomko, who turns 39 on April 7, was the Reds’ second-round pick in the June 1995 draft. He made it to the majors in 1997 and spent three seasons with Cincinnati. He was part of a fourplayer package the Reds traded to Seattle to get Ken Griffey Jr. on Feb. 10, 2000. Tomko has pitched for 10 teams during his career. He was 0-1 with a 4.58 ERA in eight games with Texas last season. All 36 pitchers and catchers reported to camp on Sunday, had physicals and participated in a light workout. RED SOX

Beckett, Lester contrite

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Boston Red Sox ace Josh Beckett says he had “lapses in judgment” in the clubhouse last season during the team’s historic September collapse. Beckett spoke on Sunday, the day Red Sox pitchers and catchers reported to spring training. He was asked about a Boston Globe report that alleged starters, including himself, Jon Lester and John Lackey, drank beer and ate fried chicken in the clubhouse on their off days. Beckett says he “made mistakes in the clubhouse, and that’s about as far as I’ll go.” He also said those mistakes did not affect his performance on the mound. Beckett gave up 12 earned runs in his final two starts against Baltimore and the Red Sox dropped 18 of their final 24 games to miss the playoffs. NATIONALS

Braves report with few changes

Atlanta’s players are eager to put collapse of 2011 behind them. By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Looking around Atlanta’s spring training clubhouse, Jason Heyward sees most of the same faces that were there last September, when the Braves blew a seemingly comfortable lead in the playoff race. Now, Heyward and his teammates are eager to prove that was the right call. As pitchers and catchers get set for their first official workout today, the Braves have decided to stick with largely the same group that played so well most of the season — then frittered away a commanding NL wild-card lead over the last month. The collapse was even harder to take when St. Louis claimed an improbable World Series championship after passing Atlanta on the final day. “Everyone took it personally,” Heyward said, sitting at his locker Sunday.

better numbers in 2012. At the top of that list is Heyward, a rookie sensation two years ago and perhaps the most disappointing player in baseball last season. Bothered by an ailing shoulder early on in spring training, the right fielder got all out of whack with his mechanics, then had a meltdown of confidence that resulted in a hideous .227 average with just 14 homers and 42 RBIs. Things got so bad that Heyward wasn’t even a full-time starter coming down the stretch, sharing the duties with trade-deadline acquisition Matt Diaz and career minor leaguer Jose Constanza. “This game is hard enough anyway. You’re going to have those spells where you get away from something, where you have those bad habits,” Heyward said. “But not being able to correct it because you’re hurt, well, that’s definitely not a fun game to play. Sometimes you need to push through those things. That’s living and learning. At the same time, I’m fortunate to go through it at a young age.”

Posey back in action for Giants ... at last

Mike Cameron retires

VIERA, Fla. — Mike Cameron has told The Washington Nationals he is retiring after a 17-season career in which the center fielder won three Gold Gloves. The 39-year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract with Washington in December and was expected to have a good shot to make the roster with the Nationals unsettled at center field. The Nationals made the announcement Sunday, six days before position players were to report to spring training. The 2001 All-Star played for eight franchises, hitting .249 with 278 homers and 968 RBIs. Last year Cameron hit .203 in 78 games for Boston and Florida. Jayson Werth could start the season in center field, making room for 19year-old phenom Bryce Harper in right field if he makes the team. -- The Associated Press

Some teams might have opted for a major shakeup, or at least done some fairly significant tinkering. But the Braves, a franchise that always preferred a steady path over headline-grabbing moves, barely touched the roster over the winter. Unless there’s an unexpected trade during spring training, the only significant changes will be rookie Tyler Pastornicky taking over at shortstop for Alex Gonzalez and someone — anyone — moving into the rotation to replace 17game loser Derek Lowe, who was dumped on Cleveland even though the Braves will continue to pay most of his $15 million salary. “I’m not surprised,” reliever Jonny Venters said. “I thought we had a great team last year. I know it didn’t pan out at the end of the year the way wanted it to, but we played good baseball most of the year.” Rather than shaking up the roster, the Braves are counting on several of the players they already have to put up much

San Francisco Giants’ Buster Posey waits to catch pitcher Tim Lincecum Sunday, in Scottsdale, Ariz.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Buster Posey squatted into a catcher’s crouch for his first spring training bullpen session and began receiving pitches from ace Tim Lincecum, then Matt Cain. He practiced springing up to throw after catching the ball, with no hesitation or signs that he had ever been seriously hurt. Posey showed he has plenty of pop in his bat, too. He cleared the fences a couple of times in his first round of batting practice at Scottsdale Stadium on Sunday, Day 1 for Giants pitchers and catchers. After bench coach Ron Wotus surrendered those home run balls, Posey quipped: “Four-seamer coming at 55 (mph), I tend to square that one up.” Clearly, San Francisco’s cleanup hitter is loose, good-natured and in a positive frame of mind. “It was special for me because I’ve put in a lot of work to get back to this point

and this is just another step,” Posey said. “There’s still some work to do but I was very happy with today.” More than 50 fans lined the fences throughout the ballpark trying to catch a glimpse of Posey getting back to work with the team at last. “For him, it’s an important day,” reliever Santiago Casilla said. “He’s waited a long time to play. He’ll be OK. He’s been working hard. Everybody wants to watch him.” The 2010 NL Rookie of the Year made his highly anticipated return to the field in a formal setting after a season-ending leg injury last year. He tore three ligaments in his left ankle and broke a bone in his lower leg in a frightening home-plate collision with Florida’s Scott Cousins on May 25. Posey is one of a handful of key major leaguers working back from injuries this spring — including Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, Colorado’s Jorge de la Rosa and reliever Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees.

NEW YORK — A.J. Burnett’s rocky tenure in pinstripes is over. The Yankees and Pirates completed a trade Sunday that sends the much-maligned pitcher to Pittsburgh for a pair of minor leaguers. New York is also giving the Pirates nearly $20 million to cover most of Burnett’s hefty salary in a deal that clears the way for the Yankees to sign Raul Ibanez. The teams agreed to the trade Friday but it was subject to Burnett passing a physical, which he did Sunday at Pirates camp as pitchers and catchers held their first workout of spring training in Bradenton, Fla. Commissioner Bud Selig also had to approve the deal because of the money involved. Burnett goes from a perennial World Series favorite to a club coming off its 19th consecutive losing season, a record for the four major pro sports in North America. “When I first heard we were thinking about getting A.J., I was excited. I was hoping we’d get it done,” said new Pirates catcher Rod Barajas, who played with Burnett on the 2008 Toronto Blue Jays. “With the relationship we’ve had, the fact that we worked together and did well together, it made me feel we can get back to where it was that year. Even after he left Toronto for New York, we constantly had conversations. He’s a joy to be around. He brings good energy. I think he’s going to fit in well here.” The Yankees get 25-year-old right-hander Diego Moreno and 20-year-old outfielder Exicardo Cayones, both low-level prospects. 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 had been made at that time. Both teams announced the deal Sunday night, though neither disclosed the amount of cash involved. “A.J. Burnett is a solid, veteran starting pitcher with an aboveaverage pitch repertoire and potential to provide us with significant quality innings from our starting rotation,” Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. New York plans to use the money saved to sign a designated hitter following Jorge Posada’s retirement. The Yankees already have been negotiating a major league deal with Ibanez, who spent the past three seasons in Philadelphia.

NASCAR said Bowyer will have to start last in Thursday’s qualifying race, but that’s the only penalty his No. 15 team will face. Scott Miller, vice president of competition for MWR, said he doesn’t think starting in the back is too big of a blow for Bowyer. “As far as the 150 goes, you’re going to be to the front and to the back of that thing,” Miller said. “Our competitiveness and our ability to go win the 150 hasn’t changed any.”

Crestwood is paced by the Fazzini brothers – John (15.5) and Chris (9.8). The other starters are Steve Roberts (8.0), Brady Gallagher (6.6) and Mike Judge (5.8). Both teams also know where they sit in the District 2 playoffs. Crestwood will be the WVC No. 1 seed and plays WVC No. 5 seed Pittston Area at 7 p.m. Friday at Wyoming Area High School. Hazleton Area is seeded second in the D2-4A playoffs and play Feb. 29 against the winner of the game between No. 3 Delaware Valley and No. 6 Wallenpaupack.

Danica Patrick was 29th in qualifying, but is guaranteed a spot in her first Daytona 500 based on a business deal Stewart Haas Racing made with Tommy Baldwin Racing. Patrick goes into the season with the points Dave Blaney earned for Baldwin last season, and gets into the 500 because it was a top-35 team last year. “To say I wasn’t nervous at all is a lie,” she said. “Of course I was, a little bit. I want to do a good job.” She watched Saturday night’s exhibition Budweiser Shootout from the spotter stand, and is anxious to run in the qualifying race Thursday to get a feel for the pack racing. NASCAR made significant tweaks to the rules package during the offseason.

Despite a final game they’d surely want to forget, the Tunkhannock Tigers, and coach Amanda Golden, have had a season to remember. The Tigers were 10-1 at the season’s midpoint, including opening the campaign with seven consecutive wins. And by the season’s midpoint, Golden was a mother, having given birth to a daughter, Kendall, during the Christmas break. “I missed just two games, but I have fantastic assistant coaches who stepped up,” Golden said. “And the girls really embraced her.” Tunkhannock continued its success in the second half of the season and finished 15-7 overall and 7-6 in Wyoming Valley Conference play. Both of those records marked the first time in recent memory that the Tigers had winning records for a season, as well as in league action. “I don’t know the last time Tunkhannock had a season like this,” Golden said. Lisa Kintner and Kassie Williams were a formidable 1-2 punch. Kintner worked in the post, scoring 12.8 points per game to lead the team. Williams made 36 three-pointers and averaged 11 points as the team’s top outside shooter. Both graduate this spring, but Golden will have key players returning to build on this season’s success. Junior Gabby Alguire was third on the team in scoring and made the most trips to the free-throw line. Ashleigh Nafus (2.7 ppg) and Katie Proulx (3.5 ppg) are also juniors. When those juniors are back as seniors, baby Kendall may be ready to run the floor herself. And look out for her on the varsity some time around 2026. Right now, Kendall has been to a few games -- her first was Tunkhannock’s 47-42 win over Dallas on Jan. 3 -- and is a regular at Tigers practice. “She loves it,” Golden said with a smile. “She comes to practice and watches the girls go up and down the floor. And sometimes she sleeps.” PLAYOFF POSITIONING: Showdowns are in store in advance of the District 2 tournament, as the WVC has three playoff games on the slate. Tonight, divisional titles will be settled at Holy Redeemer. Lake-Lehman and Nanticoke will decide the Division III crown at 6 p.m. At 7:30, Pittston Area and Wyoming Valley West will settle the Division I championship. Tuesday, GAR and Wyoming Seminary will meet at LakeLehman at 6 p.m. to decide the final WVC berth in the District 2 Class 2A tournament. The winner will play either Montrose or Dunmore at Scranton on Friday at 7:30 p.m. In the Division III matchup, the teams split the regular season with each posting decisive wins on their home courts. Nanticoke won 58-34 on Jan. 3, and Lake-Lehman gained revenge 50-37 on Jan. 26. “We can’t let them get their offense going,” Black Knights coach Charlie Levan said. “We’ve got to do a better job against Katie Wolfe in the paint and break their pressure. We’ve got to play a near-perfect game against them.” Wolfe averaged 17.0 points in the two meetings for Nanticoke, followed by 11.5 points for Sammy Gow and 9.0 points for Brittany Sugalski. LakeLehman was paced by Cayle Spencer (13.5 ppg), Nikki Sutliff (12.5) and Emily Sutton (9.0). Pittston Area and Valley West split their earlier meetings, also with the hosts winning. The Patriots won 56-49 on Jan. 19, and the Spartans took a 42-40 win on Feb. 13. Mia Hopkins led all scorers with 17.5 points per game in the matchups for Pittston Area. Grace O’Neill posted 10.5 ppg and Allie Barber had 8.5 ppg for the Patriots. Tara Zdancewicz was limited to 14.5 ppg to top Valley West’s

offense, followed by Kate Smicherko (12.5 ppg) and Olivia Hoffman (5.5) in the two earlier matchups. Tuesday’s showdown has a little more than a championship on the line, as the winner gets to play again and the loser’s season is over. “We need to come out with the same intensity we showed tonight and we’ll be OK,” Wyoming Seminary coach Ron Strothers said Thursday after his team’s game against LakeLehman. “I was happy with the effort. We gave a better effort than we did (last) Monday (a 45-23 loss to GAR).” Seminary won the first meeting between the teams, 36-33 on Jan. 18. Jessica Neary (8.0 ppg), Haley Karg (7.5) and Jane Henry (6.0) were the Blue Knights top scorers against GAR. Seminary’s No. 3 scorer, Ann Romanowski, is the wild card Tuesday. The senior averaged 6.4 points per game this season, but did not have a point against the Grenadiers. Quieterriua Gross had her best game of the season in the February game against Seminary, scoring 20 points. The Grenadiers need a balanced attack instead of putting all the offensive load on Gross, though, and will look to Marena Spence (7.5 ppg against Sem) and Unique Twyman (6.0) to contribute.

MAJOR COLLEGE BASKETBALL

PHILLES

Haas birdies 2nd playoff hole for win

Continued from Page 1B

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Bill Haas wound up making the biggest putt of them all at Riviera. On the second extra hole of a three-way playoff Sunday — made possible by clutch birdie putts from Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley on the final hole — Haas rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt across the 10th green to win the Northern Trust Open. Haas closed with a 2-under 69 and won a PGA Tour event for the third straight year. He was on the practice range at 7-under 277, warming up for a playoff that didn’t look likely. Mickelson and Bradley, the co-leaders going into the final round, were one shot behind on the 18th hole, which had given up only six birdies all day. Mickelson rammed in a birdie putt from just outside 25 feet, pointing his putter and slamming his fist as the gallery packed into the hill below the stately clubhouse let out a cheer that could be heard down Sunset Boulevard. Bradley’s birdie putt from just outside 12 feet took one last, slow turn at the cup and disappeared, setting off another enormous cheer. They started the playoff on the 18th, and Bradley had the best look at birdie with a 15-footer from just off the back of the green that touched the right side of the cup. It was decided on the 312-yard 10th hole. LPGA Thailand CHONBURI, Thailand — Top-ranked Yani Tseng successfully defended her LPGA Thailand title for her 13th LPGA Tour victory, birdieing the final two holes to hold off playing partner Ai Miyazato by a stroke. The 23-year-old Taiwanese star shot a 6-under 66 to finish at 19-under 269 on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course. She opened with a 73, then shot consecutive 65s to enter the final round a shot behind Miyazato. ACE Group Classic NAPLES, Fla. — Kenny Perry won the ACE Group Classic for his second Champions Tour title, beating 2011 winner Bernhard Langer by five strokes.

the NBA finals. After the final buzzer, Lin got a hug from a fellow Bay Area product, and someone who knows a thing or two about playing the point — Mavs star Jason Kidd “He looks a little bit like Steve Nash out there,” Kidd said, referring to the two-time MVP of the Phoenix Suns. In a game of wild momentum swings, the Knicks reeled off 17 straight points in the first quarter, fell behind by 12 in the third, then pulled it out to beat the Mavericks for only the third time in the last 20 meetings. “I think they found something in Lin, and they’re starting to piece together a team that can beat anyone,” Mavs guard Jason Terry said. Steve Novak also delivered for the Knicks. He scored all 14 of his points in the fourth quarter, including four 3s. J.R. Smith scored 15 points in his Knicks debut as New York won for the eighth time in nine games. Dirk Nowitzki scored a seasonhigh 34 points for the Mavericks, who had been playing championship-level defense but became the latest team who couldn’t stop Lin. “I was talking to them before the game and they were saying they had an answer for Lin,” said Knicks center Tyson Chandler, who played for the Mavs last season, “I guess they were dead wrong on their scouting report.” Playing for the seventh straight game without the injured Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks got a huge lift from Smith, signed just Friday after returning from China.

Gasser scores 15 as Badgers top PSU By The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — Josh Gasser scored 15 points and No. 15 Wisconsin held off Penn State 65-55 on Sunday. Jared Berggren added 13 points, and Ryan Evans and Jordan Taylor scored 11 each for the Badgers (20-7, 9-5 Big Ten), who have won eight of their last 10 games and maintained their grip on fourth place in the conference. Tim Frazier scored 20 points for the Nittany Lions (12-16, 4-11), who used a 17-2 run in the second half to cut the lead to 51-46 with 5:49 remaining. That’s as close as it would get, as Berggren hit a pair of 3-pointers to help Wisconsin close with a 14-9 run. Penn State, which came in riding its first two-game win streak since Dec. 18-21, has not won in Madison since 1995, a span of 15 games. Syracuse 74, Rutgers 64 PISCATAWAY, N.J. — C.J. Fair scored a career-high 21 points and Scoop Jardine added 17, including a

dagger 3-pointer with 1:11 to play, as No. 2 Syracuse escaped another close one with a victory over Rutgers. The Orange (27-1, 14-1) improved their lead in the Big East standings to 2 1/2 games over No. 12 Marquette and No. 23 Notre Dame. They won two of their last three games by three points or fewer and this one looked to be going the same way.

Duke 75, Boston College 50 BOSTON — Seth Curry scored 18 points and Duke didn’t need another late rally as it cruised past Boston College behind a smothering defense. The Blue Devils had erased a 20point deficit in the final 11 1/2 minutes to beat North Carolina State 78-73 on Thursday night. Eight days earlier, they had come back from 10 points down with 2 1/2 minutes left to beat North Carolina 85-84. But against BC, Duke went ahead for good on a layup by Austin Rivers midway through the first half, 15-13, led

30-21 at intermission and stretched that to 28 points midway through the second half.

Michigan St. 76, Purdue 62 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Draymond Green had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Austin Thornton scored a career-high 17 points to lead Michigan State past short-handed Purdue. By winning their second straight in West Lafayette and sweeping the Boilermakers this season, the Spartans (22-5, 11-3 Big Ten) took a one-game lead in the conference title chase. Iowa 78, Indiana 66 IOWA CITY, Iowa — Matt Gaten scored a career-high 30 points and Iowa snapped Indiana’s three-game winning streak. Melsahn Basabe had 13 points for the Hawkeyes (14-13, 6-8 Big Ten), who beat the Hoosiers in Iowa City for the seventh time in eight tries.

NBA ROUNDUP

elbow injury and persistent trade rumors will do that. The Phillies signed Kendrick to a twoyear deal worth $7.5 million on Sunday. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. cited “cost certainty” — in other words, the 27year-old righthander will not earn a significant raise again in 2013 through arbitration. But the contract shows increased faith in a pitcher whom the Phillies appear to value more by the day. When asked whether Kendrick could start 25 to 30 games for these Phillies, Dubee issued a strong vote of confidence. “Very much so,” Dubee said. “I think there probably would be a lot of teams comfortable with Kyle Kendrick as a starter.” Right now, he’s the sixth in a rotation of five, but that could change depending on Blanton’s status. It’s the beginning of spring training, so there must be Blanton trade rumors. “I wouldn’t know what to do if they didn’t come along,” Blanton deadpanned Sunday morning. “I don’t even pay attention anymore. It’s a business. We all understand that. No one takes it personal.” The latest: The Phillies, according to numerous published reports, talked to the New York Yankees about A.J. Burnett, who ultimately was traded to Pittsburgh. To fit Burnett into the rotation and payroll, the Phillies would have been forced to deal Blanton to another team, perhaps in a three-way deal. That’s where the reality of any Blanton rumor comes to a screeching halt. No one will trade for Blanton, who pitched all of 411/3 innings in 2011, right now unless the Phillies eat all of his remaining $8.5 million salary. And the Phils want to trade Blanton to free up money, so that’s not happening. Does that preclude a Blanton trade from happening later this spring? No. By reportedly inquiring about Burnett, the Phillies showed their hand; they are seeking an upgrade. Amaro was asked Sunday whether he is pursuing such a move. “Right now, I think we’re pretty comfortable with our rotation,” Amaro said. “I like the way we set up. Vance had a very good year last year. Joe Blanton, if he’s healthy, is going to be a good pitcher for us. That is still an ’if’ because of the year he had.” Indeed, life after Four Aces is more complicated.

Wade, James lead Heat to win over Magic The Associated Press

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 27 points, LeBron James had 25 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, and the NBA-leading Miami Heat beat the Orlando Magic 90-78 on Sunday for their sixth consecutive victory. With former President Bill Clinton sitting courtside next to Heat managing general partner Micky Arison, Udonis Haslem scored 10 for the Heat, who improved to 25-7, a halfgame better than Chicago for the best record in the NBA and the Eastern Conference. The 12-point final margin Sunday was Miami’s smallest during its current winning streak. Wade made 13 of 23 shots from the floor, shooting 50 percent or better for the 10th straight game. J.J. Redick, who was a late addition to the Orlando starting lineup after Jason Richardson was scratched with chest pain, scored 17 points. Pacers 108, Bobcats 73

INDIANAPOLIS — First-time AllStar Roy Hibbert had 18 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Indiana Pacers to a win over the Charlotte Bobcats. Danny Granger and David West each scored 14 points. West added eight rebounds for the Pacers, who have won two in a row. Pistons 96, Celtics 81

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Greg Monroe had 17 points and 10 assists, and Rodney Stuckey added 16 points

to lead surging Detroit Pistons over the Boston Celtics. Detroit has now won seven of its last nine games, including two victories in five days over the Celtics, who were missing Kevin Garnett (personal reasons) and Brandon Bass (left knee). Paul Pierce led Boston with 18 points.

Brook Lopez.

Cavaliers 93, Kings 92

PHOENIX — Jared Dudley scored a season-high 25 points, Marcin Gortat had 21 points and 15 rebounds and the Phoenix Suns held on to beat the Los Angeles Lakers, ending a four-game losing streak. The Lakers, who had won three straight, trailed by 23 at halftime and 27 in the third quarter before cutting it to 10 in the fourth. Kobe Bryant scored 32 points but was 1 of 8 on 3-pointers and committed 10 turnovers, one shy of his career worst.

CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving’s two free throws with 0.4 seconds remaining gave the Cleveland Cavaliers a win over Sacramento, extending the Kings’ losing streak to five games. Irving’s foul shots came after DeMarcus Cousins’ basket with 2.9 seconds left gave the Kings a 92-91 lead. Rockets 101, Jazz 85

HOUSTON — Kyle Lowry scored 32 points and Luis Scola had 26 and the Houston Rockets fought off a late run from the Utah Jazz and went on to a win. Utah cut Houston’s double-digit lead to just two points with a big fourth quarter run, before an 8-2 spurt by the Rockets stretched their lead to 88-80 with four minutes left. Bucks 92, Nets 85

NEWARK, N.J. — Ersan Ilyasova had career highs of 29 points and 25 rebounds, and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a four-game losing streak with a victory over New Jersey, spoiling the season debut of Nets center

Timberwolves 92, 76ers 91

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Love scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of free throws with 0.1 seconds, to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Suns 102, Lakers 90

Thunder 124, Nuggets 118

OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored a career-best 51 points for the top performance in the NBA this season, Russell Westbrook added 40 and Serge Ibaka had his first career triple-double as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Denver Nuggets. Durant hit a 3-pointer and drove for a dunk to tie the game with 4.4 seconds left in regulation, then used the extra period to chalk up the first 50-point game of the two-time scoring champion’s career.

The week will start off nice and then a taste of winter will jump back into the forecast. This morning will start off very cold, then warm up to a mild 40 degrees. Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast for today and Tuesday. The high for Tuesday will be 45, but clouds will increase through the evening hours. The chance of a rain or light snow shower is possible. Wednesday looks like it will be the warmest day of the week, but it will also be cloudy with rain. Thursday will be warm with clouds and rain. Light snow showers with a mix of rain is possible for Friday. By Saturday, things should clear up. - Michelle Rotella

The Dallas Township Police Department recently announced seat belt education and enforcement activities as part of a teen driver safety mobilization program from Feb. 14 through March 4. Law enforcement and school administrators visited the Dallas High School to kick off the program. The informational sessions include a police seat belt check point at the high school entrance and informational materials distributed by members of the Dallas High School Emergency Responders Club. This educational outreach, coupled with enforcement activities, will raise awareness of the new teen-driver law that took effect in December that states that all vehicle occupants younger than 18 must wear a seat belt. The Dallas Township Police Department has been involved with aggressive driving and seat belt programs that provide funding for education and enforcement in the interest of traffic safety. Funding is provided by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. At the kick off, from left: Officer Brad Balutis, Dallas Township Police Department; Frank Galicki, superintendant, Dallas School District; Jeff Shaffer, principal, Dallas High School; and Chief Robert Jolley, Dallas Township Police Department.

Recent widow’s heart is vulnerable to online dating suitor’s charms Dear Abby: One of my closest friends from childhood, “Penny,” lost her husband of 30 years five months ago, after a short illness. We reconnected via the Internet and have become close again. It has been a blessing. Penny has moved back to California and has been to visit me a couple of times. One of Penny’s relatives signed her up on some online dating sites, and a seemingly nice man from across the country immediately contacted her with a beautiful email. She responded to him once, explaining her recent loss, and he has been courting her with extremely romantic daily emails ever since. Penny asked me

DEAR ABBY ADVICE for advice, and I told her that her loss is fresh and raw, and she should give herself time to grieve. Penny has never been alone, and I know she’s scared. However, I see big red flags and I’m worried about her. I advised that they should keep in casual contact, and if it’s real now, it will still be real in another year. I think she needs time to heal. Should I stay out of it and mind my own business, or should I reiterate my concerns? — Conflicted in Coastal California Dear Conflicted: I see nothing wrong with continuing to share your think-

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

ing with your friend. You gave her good advice. Although some beautiful relationships have been formed online, this one seems to have blossomed unusually quickly. Encourage Penny to take her time, invite him to visit eventually, and go visit him so she can meet his friends and family and get to know him better. If it turns out that remarriage is in the cards, then suggest that she contact her lawyer and have a prenuptial agreement in place before the wedding. Dear Abby: We are in our late 40s and have two elementary school-age children. My husband and I are actively involved in our church and at our children’s school. However, we have no friends we can just hang out

CRYPTOQUOTE

with. We used to be part of a small group of friends from church, but one family had a falling out with the others. Somehow we got dragged into it, and now no one interacts with us. The parents of our children’s friends attend another church and have a group they’re part of, but we are not. When I was working, we could afford to have the kids in activities but there wasn’t much time. Now that I am not working the time is there, but not the money. People our age have empty nests or are grandparents. We’d love to have friends, but we don’t know how to resolve this. — Left Behind in Sparks, Nev. Dear Left Behind: Why not invite your children’s friends and their parents over? You already have some-

thing in common with them. If that doesn’t work, a way to make new friends would be to sign your children up for affordable extra-curricular activities such as YMCA, YWCA, Little League or Scouting. That way, you’ll meet other parents with similar interests. Another alternative would be for you and your husband to join a service club so you can meet others who contribute to the community. If you give it a try you will widen your circle of acquaintances, which can lead to friendships. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your eyes and heart will be wide open. In some small, tangible and immensely satisfying way, you’ll understand the difference you’ve made in other people’s lives. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your happiness depends to some degree on the amount of control you believe you have How much control you actually have isn’t as relevant as the amount you believe you have. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have only so much attention to give others and still take stellar care of yourself. It will be necessary to pick your battles and to allow others to take care of their own responsibilities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not a product of your circumstances, though you certainly are choosing some challenging and influential environments to hang out in. You are bigger than the moment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Boldness is one of your talents. One thing that helps on the subject of boldness is not to take things too seriously. It is much easier to be bold when you see the lions as the kitty cats they really are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some people are just earnest. You’ll appreciate that and share in the stark honesty of it. This is your preferred mode, as well. You’ll be sure to relate in a way that is true to who you are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People repeat patterns because it feels natural to do so. It may not, however, be the healthiest way. You’ll be brave enough to perform a “pattern interrupt.”

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be attracted to just the people who will shine a light on a different side of you, a side you did not even know existed before. The new vista of insight will bring pure delight. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t be shy. If you feel shy, take it as a sign that you’re being challenged to buck your fear. Do the opposite action to the one you feel like doing. Go over and introduce yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Not only are you doing the best you can; you’re doing the best that has been done by anyone who recently applied themselves to the task. So don’t undervalue your contribution. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll broaden your horizons in a small but significant way. You will have a feeling about what you’re good at, and you’ll follow that feeling into a particular area of interest. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When the chance comes to dance (and it’s there every day, you just have to recognize it), you need to take hold of the other person’s hand and dance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 20). Because you always keep your end of a bargain, you gain a stellar reputation this year. You can take that to the bank in March, June and October. Save for future renovations. Extroverted energy helps your personal and professional life in May. A lucky conversation leads to a once in a lifetime opportunity. Leo and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 39, 25, 12 and 40.
