Romney, Santorum duke it out

Both win states, and prized Ohio is too close to call between them By MARK Z. BARABAK Los Angeles Times

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum battled to the wire in a close Super Tuesday finish, as each chalked up victories in states they expected to win and ran neck-and-neck in the fight for the day’s biggest prize, Ohio.

Romney won Virginia, Vermont, Massachusetts and was projected to win Idaho, piling up convention delegates, and told cheering supporters in Boston that was just the beginning. “We’re going to get more before the night is over,” the former Massachusetts governor said. “We’re on our way.”

Danny Mincey leaves Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church to cast his vote Tuesday in Memphis, Tenn.

His mood, however, appeared less celebratory than resigned to several more weeks of hard campaigning. Santorum won North Dakota — a surprise — as well as Oklahoma and Tennessee. The latter two denied Romney the Southern breakSee SUPER, Page 8A

City Council doesn’t address Sterling fee Mayor has not yet made proposal on waiving $50K in fees, councilman says. By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – On Monday, all five City Council members said they had questions regarding the waiving of permit fees for the demolition of the Hotel Sterling and were looking forward to discussing the issue. At Tuesday night’s work session, none of the council members brought it up.

“The question hasn’t been raised to council,” said Council Chairman Mike Merritt. Asked what he meant by Leighton that, Merritt said Mayor Tom Leighton has not yet offered a recommendation on whether the city should waive the estimated $50,000 in permit fees as requested by the Luzerne County Council. Merritt said council could waive all, part or none of the fees. A majority of council members

interviewed Monday said they would oppose dropping the fee, which would be paid by the county. They cited the city’s financial investment in the Sterling – about $300,000 – as the reason. The County Council can opt to provide the $1 million for demolition, mothball the building for possible future development or do nothing. The county has a stake in the property because of $6 million in community development loans for the project. The city, which condemned the 114-year-old structure, could be forced to come up with the demolition cost should the coun-

2011 machete attack in W-B heads to trial

Junior Alberto Diaz-Reyes charged with slashing teen boy in head last June. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A city man who police say slashed a teen boy in the head with a machete will stand trial next month, a county judge said Tuesday. Junior Alberto Diaz-Reyes, 25, of South Grant Street, appeared in Luzerne County Court on Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, disorderly conduct and harassment in the June 2011 incident. Judge David Lupas said he will issue court papers scheduling a trial for sometime in April. Assistant District Attorney William Finnegan said DiazReyes’ attorney, Christopher O’Donnell, is waiting for documentation in the case to review. Police allege Diaz-Reyes swung a machete that slashed a 16-year-old boy in the forehead during an argument in the area

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne woman charged with using another woman’s credit card to make several purchases in 2010 was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation. Annette Billings, 46, of Bennett Street, was sentenced on a single count of identity theft by County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley. Billings pleaded guilty to the charge in December and paid $1,161 in restitution Tuesday. A remaining $161 must still be paid, Polachek Gartley said, and 25 hours of community service completed.

of East Northampton and South Grant streets. The boy was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, where he was treated for lacerations to his forehead, injuries to his left eye and a fractured skull, police said. According to court papers, Diaz-Reyes was drinking beer while sitting on steps to another house at East Northampton and South Grant streets when the boy and his friends walked by, and Diaz-Reyes started speaking to the boy in Spanish. An argument erupted when the boy told Diaz-Reyes he did not speak the language. DiazReyes and the boy shoved one another as the boy tried to walk away. Diaz-Reyes ran after the boy, pulling out a machete that he swung at the boy, striking him in the forehead and eye, the complaint says. Diaz-Reyes is currently jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility on $10,000 bail. A request to reduce his bail amount had been previously denied by a judge.

Separate drug sweeps net 3 arrests Times Leader staff

HANOVER TWP. – Three people were arrested in separate drug sweeps conducted by the state Office of Attorney General’s Luzerne County Drug Task Force. Marion Gause, 44, of Myers Court, Wilkes-Barre, also known as Unique, and Nichole Lane, 42, of East Ridge Street, Nanticoke, were arrested Friday after they allegedly sold heroin in the parking lot at the Hanover Mall, Sans Sou-

ci Parkway. A search of Lane’s residence uncovered heroin packets stamped “No Way Out” and “Mafia,” township police said. Gause and Lane were charged with several drug trafficking charges and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail each. Gause is a member of the Bloods street gang, police said. Drug agents arrested Edward Clark Pacheco, 31, also known as

“Q,” on Monday after he allegedly sold heroin in the same parking lot. A search at Pacheco’s residence on East Main Street, Nanticoke, allegedly uncovered heroin packets stamped “CVS” and “Hangover,” crack cocaine, cell phones, a digital scale and a .40caliber handgun, police said. Pacheco was charged with multiple drug offenses and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail.

Dallas Twp. fire companies working out boundaries By SARAH HITE

DALLAS TWP. – The supervisors’ first work session Tuesday ended with the township’s two fire companies agreeing to work out their boundaries with Luzerne County 911. Dallas Fire and Ambulance addressed the board about disputed territories within the township after two former supervisors did not approve suggestions made by the fire companies and Luzerne County 911. In August, 911 approached the township

to redistrict the dispatching territories due to a new computer-aided mapping system. Andrew Zahorsky of Luzerne County 911said the county wanted boundary clarification on streets both fire companies shared. The map was finalized in August, and Zahorsky said 911 started using the new technology last week. Conrad Higgins of the Kunkle Fire Co. said the fire company is willing to work out the issues, though he felt Kunkle’s territory has been depleted over the last 50

Prison guard on trial

A Luzerne County jury heard testimony Tuesday in the case of a county prison guard charged with selling drugs to another guard. Christopher Walsh, 29, of Pittston, faces three charges in the case. Testimony is expected to continue through today. On Tuesday, jurors heard several recorded conversations between Walsh and another guard, Joseph Ciampi, about Walsh grand jury subpoenas, testimony and how investigators were tipped off to the drug activity. Ciampi offered testimony to the grand jury during the investigation and had resigned from his position at the county prison as a guard. Ciampi has not been charged. Walsh was charged in March 2011 along with three other prison workers, following a 13-month probe. After a grand jury hearing, prosecutors learned Walsh allegedly sold cocaine to corrections officers.

His Grace Bishop Tikhon, the bishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, is expected for the services. The service is to give thanks for the safety of firefighters and the Rev. Adam R.

A pot luck in the church parlors below the church will follow the thanksgiving service.

Disciplinary actions were taken by state departments against 171 licensed or commissioned professionals and organizations across the state in February. Two of the measures were levied against area professionals, according to the Department of State: • Mark H. Bell, of Shavertown, was indefinitely suspended for no less than 18 months retroactive to June 28, 2011, by the state Board of Medicine because he is unable to practice medicine and surgery with reasonable skill and safety to patients by reason of illness or addiction to drugs or alcohol. • David Lloyd Naugle, of Hazleton, Luzerne County, was temporarily suspended by the state Board of Optometry, pending a hearing, on the grounds that his continued practice of optometry within the state may be a danger to public health and safety.

Woman stabbed multiple times By EDWARD LEWIS

HANOVER TWP. – Blood spatter covered a blue Hyundai outside a Marion Terrace apartment after Lisa Scoffone allegedly was stabbed multiple times by her boyfriend, Joseph Dunaj, on Tuesday. Township police arrested Dunaj, 27, outside 1601 Mark Drive as Scoffone was leaning over the vehicle just after 11:30 a.m. Scoffone was rushed by township paramedics to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, where she underwent surgery, Police Chief Al Walker said. Walker said Dunaj was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility on a probation violation. Charges are expected to be filed against Dunaj pending an investigation, Walker said. Police allege Dunaj stabbed Scoffone inside their apartment. Court records indicate Dunaj is serving a two-year probation sentence that was imposed by a Luzerne County judge on May 6 on a criminal trespass charge when he smashed a window at the same apartment on Nov. 20, 2010. Scoffone filed a protection from abuse order against Dunaj in January

in the apartment complex, said the mother was outside honking her car’s horn and getting no response from the daughter. “(Scoffone’s) mom stopped me to help her check on this Lisa girl, she said she wasn’t answering,” Bryant said. “I walked in and yelled and she (Scoffone) came down from upstairs.” Bryant said she left and later returned to find police at the same apartment. “I feel bad; I don’t even know these people. With this happening around here, it’s kind of scary,” Bryant said. Bryant said the victim’s mother was returning a young boy to the apartment Tuesday morning. The apartment is adjacent to a small playground in the apartment complex. A front window was smashed and blinds were damaged in the 1601 Mark Drive apartment. Township police detectives David Lewis and Dean Stair were at the apartment interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence immediately after the incident. County Detective Dan Beky arrived and spent a short time inside the apartment before going to police headquarters in an attempt to question Dunaj.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, texting while driving will be illegal in Pennsylvania

Drivers must keep fingers off phone keypads BAN BILLS ON HOLD

Some lawmakers and law enforcers say a statewide ban on texting while driving that goes into effect Thursday is only a first step in reducing distracted driving and will be difficult to enforce. They advocate a ban on any hand-held cellphone use. Approved by legislators in the fall, the new law will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and makes texting while driving a primary offense carrying a $50 fine. A primary offense means police officers can pull over a driver for no other reason than they see them texting. But how can an officer know for sure that someone is texting rather than dialing their phone? That’s an issue some local police chiefs said their officers are sure to encounter. “We’ll have to cross that bridge when we come to it,” said Keith Keiper, chief of the Kingston Police Department. He said officers will consider extended time spent looking at a phone as a clue that texting is taking place. “It’s going to be hard to do,” Keiper said, adding that he expects court challenges to some tickets.

There have been at least two bills this legislative session that, if approved, would outlaw using cellphones while driving: • House Bill 896 was unanimously approved by the House on May 10 and was sent to the Senate, where it remains in that chamber’s Transportation Committee. That bill sought to address distracted driving, which would encompass cellphone use while driving and any other activity that takes attention away from the road. • House Bill 330, which would ban all hand-held cellphone usage while driving was referred to the House Transportation Committee on Jan. 31, 2011, and has not been considered by the committee to date.

Beginning Thursday, this activity will be illegal. Texting while driving will be a primary offense carrying a $50 fine. A primary offense means police officers can pull over a driver for no other reason than they see them texting. PennDOT reports distracted driving played a role in 14,000 crashes statewide in 2010 and 68 people were killed. AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER

State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan, a Clarks Summit native, noted that texting is “a serious problem and we are hoping that we can educate citizens on the dangers of texting while driving and prevent future accidents.” Noonan echoed Keiper’s comments about how officers will determine when to initiate a traffic stop. “Our troopers will attempt to use observations of the driver while the vehicle is in motion to

determine if traffic stops are warranted. An example might be the motorist continues to manipulate the device over an extended distance with no apparent voice communication.” State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, said one should pull over before sending a text, email or using the web. According to the state Department of Transportation, distracted driving played a role in 14,000 crashes in Pennsylvania in 2010

Yannuzzi said DeAndrea’s appointment must be ratified by at least three city council members on Thursday. If council approves, DeAndrea will start work Friday and will be sworn in at 10 a.m. Monday.

Fairview crews are ready to start repaving projects

FAIRVIEW TWP. -- Township Roadmaster Russell Marhold said on Monday that the road crews already had finished patching roads for the spring and were gearing up to start repaving projects. The news came just before Secretary and Treasurer Barbara Wasiakowski said that Luzerne County Community Development officials were cutting

County & Municipal Employees, or AFSCME, said the amount has increased since then. County commissioners had appealed the ruling, but a decision has not been publicly issued. Schnelly said she has not received a decision on the appeal and noted she has forwarded information to the FBI about the WIB that she believes warrants investigation.

Responding to a report that the mayor’s top pick for the post was Jerry Speziale, the former sheriff of Passaic County, N.J., who acted alongside Richard Gere in the 2009 police drama “Brooklyn’s Finest” and resigned in 2010 to take a $200,000-a-year job with the Port Authority Police Department, Yannuzzi said that was inaccurate. Yannuzzi said he offered the job first to DeAndrea, but DeAndrea initially refused. “He asked if he could do anything else and I said, ‘Yes, help me when I put the ad in and, when we get the resumes, you rank them.’ So Frank did that. I guess going through that, talking to me, talking about the police, the challenges, it got his adrenaline going,” Yannuzzi said.

and 68 people were killed. Text messaging while driving has skyrocketed over the past few years and the trend is increasing, according to AAA. The auto club reported that its research found 21 percent of drivers admitted text messaging while driving. According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, a driver’s crash risk is doubled when looking away from the road for two or more seconds. Michele Drago, a 22-year-old

Larksville resident and a senior at Misericordia University, does not text while driving but said she has seen firsthand the dangers it poses. She was a passenger in a vehicle when the driver was texting and the vehicle almost veered off the road. She said that while “my friends don’t do it as much as they used to” it’s still done. And the law, which she fully supports, might scare some into stopping but it will likely still occur.

Plymouth Twp. soil test findings are revealed

PLYMOUTH TWP. -- Township Engineer Joe Mullen presented findings of soil tests done on Tilbury Terrace Road at Monday’s supervisors meeting. There are roughly 60 homes on the road, which was badly damaged by flooding last July and September. Mullen, of Pennoni & Associates, explained how his company bored holes into the road and the slope below to determine the stability of the area. Mullen said the friction of the saturated, sliding earth, which is mostly

County council members appoint members to the 33-person board that oversees the agency. WIB representatives had left Tuesday’s meeting by the time Schnelly spoke.

It is now meeting all government performance standards

Resident questions W-B Township sewer bills

WILKES-BARRE TWP. -- At Monday night’s council meeting, Michael Sromovski questioned more than $7,000 worth of bills for the sewer department this past month. Township Administrator Michael Revitt said the pumps at Wilkeswood Station were failing and Roto-Rooter had to be called in to clean and repair them. Damage caused by the sewer backup also had to be fixed, he said. Council next meets at 7:30 p.m. March 26. Susan Denney

with no audit deficiencies. The agency’s executive director Lucyann Vierling said the agency, one of 22 WIB zones in the state, oversees two CareerLink offices in Luzerne County in addition to other programs. The agency received $9.06 million in funding, mostly federal, in the 2010/11 fiscal year, but that amount has decreased to $7.4 million this fiscal year, she said.


Yannuzzi said he and DeAndrea narrowed a list of applicants down to six and settled on Speziale, but negotiations fell through. “When that happened, Frank asked if he could be considered and I said, ‘Give me your resume.’ He did, and of course I knew that was my original choice. “So I asked him and he accepted,” Yannuzzi said. Yannuzzi said Hazleton has an “outstanding” police department, but, using a sports analogy, said it’s comprised of “a lot of good athletes” who are “not a team yet because they don’t have the quarterback to lead them through it. “This is my choice for the quarterback: Frank V. DeAndrea Jr.,” he said.

a person that I have admired and respected for years,” Leighton said. “He is steadfast, dedicated, and the polar opposite of the Irish stereotype.” Leighton said Ryan has been “an anchor of his neighborhood” who wears his Irish pride on his sleeve. Ryan, with his wife, Jeanmarie, and children Bridget and Daniel, was shocked when his name was called. “I’m speechless; I had no clue,” Ryan said. “It’s a tre-

“(People who text while driving) are sneaky about it. They’ll be more sneaky than they are now,” Drago said. She agrees that police have a tough task ahead. “It’s going to be a hard law to enforce,” Drago said. Pennsylvania will become the 35th state to ban text messaging for all drivers. “It’s a good first step,” said Wilkes-Barre Police Chief Gerry Dessoye, who also noted it will be difficult to know at a glance whether someone is texting or simply dialing their phone. While Keiper said the texting ban helps, ultimately he is hoping the legislature will approve a complete ban on hand-held cellphone use while driving. Provisions that would have done just that were taken out of the texting ban bill before final passage. “The texting while driving ban will be difficult to enforce in its current form because police may not know or be able to prove that the driver was texting as opposed to dialing the phone. We need a hand-held cellphone use while driving ban. But, unfortunately, as hard as it was to get the texting ban passed, I just don’t think that will happen any time soon,” said Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston.

In other business, county Manager Robert Lawton announced county Security Chief John Robshaw and Chief Engineer Joe Gibbons have come up with a plan to reopen countyowned Moon Lake Park daily from the second week of April into November.

mendous honor and I hope to uphold the honor of all the previous grand marshals.” Leighton noted past honorees include former Gov. Edward G. Rendell, former City Administrator James F. Conahan and Jack and Cece McCarthy. The mayor said Ryan is the first child, and only son, born to Edward J. Ryan and Marcella P. Ryan, in Syracuse, N.Y. He said Ryan grew up in a large Irish family of 30 first cousins. One of Ryan’s first cousins is world famous. Tom Kenny, the voice of cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants, is the godson and first cousin of

Ryan. In a Times Leader story in 2009, Kenny said Ryan was 14 when he stood as his godfather. “Obviously he has utterly failed in his responsibilities,” Kenny joked in the story. Ryan’s ancestors hailed from County Longford, Roscommon, and County Tipperary. “Growing up in the Tipperary Hill neighborhood, the family was never far from their Irish roots,” Leighton said. “The area boasts of the only traffic light in the world where you will find the green light over the red, in respect for these roots.”

Syria’s president defiant

president defied mounting S yria’s international pressure to end the

year-old crackdown on an uprising against him and said Tuesday he was determined to go on fighting what he called “foreign-backed terrorism.” After a powerful American senator called for airstrikes on Syria, President Barack Obama said unilateral U.S. military action against President Bashar Assad’s regime would be a mistake. The United States said it is proposing a new United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to violence in Syria, first by government forces and then by opposition fighters. Russia and China, powerful allies that have blocked a Security Council resolution against Syria, made clear they were still standing by the regime in Damascus.

Report raises questions about whether Hispanics and blacks are bring treated fairly. By KIMBERLY HEFLING AP Education Writer


President Barack Obama gestures Tuesday during a news conference in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington.



Afghan transition stressed President Barack Obama said Tuesday the furor in Afghanistan over the accidental burning of Qurans underscores the need for the U.S. to transition out of the war there. Obama emphasized that the U.S. still plans to end its combat role in Afghanistan by the end of 2014. The drawdown will be a central topic of discussion at the NATO meetings in Chicago in May. Obama said in a news conference that the recent accidental burning of Muslim Qurans by U.S. forces and the protests that followed underscore the challenges in Afghanistan and why the U.S. is drawing down its combat role there. Thirty people died in the Quran protests, including six American troops. HARRISBURG

All-electronic tolls favored A new report bolsters the prospect of the Pennsylvania Turnpike converting to an all-electronic tolling system. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission posted the report on its website Tuesday, but officials stressed that any actual conversion is at least five years away. The study by an outside consultant recommends replacing toll booths with overhead “gantries” on travel lanes. They would electronically deduct tolls from vehicles with E-Z Pass transponders and photograph license plates of other vehicles so bills could be sent to the registered owners. Commission spokesman Carl DeFebo said that, if the commission approves all-electronic tolls, that firm also could oversee the implementation of the new system. LONDON

‘Small World’ writer dies How do you sum up the work of songwriter Robert B. Sherman? Try one word: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” The tongue-twisting term, sung by magical nanny Mary Poppins, is like much of Sherman’s work — both complex and instantly memorable, for child and adult alike. Once heard, it was never forgotten. Sherman, who died in London at age 86, was half of a sibling partnership that put songs into the mouths of nannies and Cockney chimney sweeps, jungle animals and Parisian felines. Robert Sherman and his brother Richard composed scores for films including “The Jungle Book,” “The Aristocats,” “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” They also wrote the most-played tune on Earth, “It’s a Small World (After All).” Sherman’s agent, Stella Richards, said Tuesday that Sherman died peacefully in London on Monday.

Meth lab burns at nursing home A man who was not a resident died at facility cited with 18 violations. The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A nursing home where a 31-yearold man died after a meth lab fire that injured several other people was cited for 18 violations last year, including not providing adequate care, according to state records obtained Tuesday. The victim was not a patient or employee of Park Haven Home in Ashtabula, authorities said as they sought

to uncover how the meth lab was set up in a resident’s room and how long it went undetected. Police said charges were expected against two men who were also burned in the fire. The fire broke out Sunday night, east of Cleveland, authorities said. Three residents and two non-residents were hospitalized, including Shaun Warrens of Ashtabula, who died Monday at a Cleveland hospital. An autopsy was planned Tuesday. Police believe two visitors and one Park Haven resident knew about the meth lab, Po-

lice Chief Robert Stell told the Star Beacon of Ashtabula. The home’s alleged violations in a December survey included not providing adequate care, failing to investigate how a resident was in-

jured and not properly responding to residents’ complaints about missing property. An earlier review of the facility, in June, resulted in citations for two violations.

WASHINGTON — More than 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or cases referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or African-American, according to an Education Department report that raises questions about whether students of all races are disciplined evenhandedly in America’s schools. Black students are more than three times as likely as their white peers to be suspended or expelled, according to an early snapshot of the report released to reporters. According to The findings the Education come from a national col- Department’s lection of civil report, 42 rights data percent of the from 2009-10 referrals to of more than 72,000 schools law enforceserving 85 per- ment involved cent of the na- black stution. dents and 29 The Education Depart- percent inment said it volved Hiswould release panics. more details Tuesday. “The sad fact is that minority students across America face much harsher discipline than non-minorities, even within the same school,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan told reporters. Duncan said some school officials might not have been aware of inconsistencies in how they handle discipline, and he hoped the report would be an eye-opener. Raul Gonzalez, legislative director at the National Council of La Raza who taught school in New York, said “zero tolerance” policies in both schools and the court system disproportionately affect black and Hispanic kids. He said the policies have created a system that takes kids out of school and ultimately leads them into prison where they become hardened criminals. “We’ve lost control of all judgment here, and it’s almost always a black kid or a Hispanic kid” affected, Gonzalez said. According to the Education Department’s report, 42 percent of the referrals to law enforcement involved black students and 29 percent involved Hispanics, while 35 percent of students involved in school-related arrests were black and 37 percent were Hispanic. Black students made up 18 percent of the students in the sample, but they were 35 percent of students suspended once and 39 percent of students expelled, the report said.

Judge schedules hearing on Sandusky attorney’s request for more information Lawyer Joe Amendola said last week he wanted Attorney General’s Office to provide more details about the allegations.

The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Lawyers in the Jerry Sandusky case were ordered Tuesday to appear in court early next week to address how much information state prosecutors should be compelled to disclose before the start of trial on child sexabuse charges. Judge John Cleland scheduled oral argument on the defense request for additional de-

tails to be held Monday morning in the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte. Sandusky lawyer Joe Sandusky Amendola said last week he wanted the attorney general’s office to provide more details about the allegations to help him prepare pos-

sible defenses based on an alibi, the statute of limitations, double jeopardy or other grounds. Sandusky, 68, is a former longtime assistant football coach at Penn State. He is confined to his home as he awaits trial on 52 criminal counts that involve 10 boys over 15 years. He denies the allegations. Cleland wants jury selection to begin May 14, although the

two sides continue to hash out pretrial issues. Next week’s hearing centers on the “bill of particulars” sought by Amendola that would provide more details about the times, dates and locations where crimes allegedly occurred, the names of people who were present or nearby, and “special events” such as football games on the days of the purported crimes.

She passed this inspiring faith on to her family and loved ones. She was known to always be there with a loving hug, warm smile, cheerful song, and the reassuring words, “God willing.” Her loved ones have been deeply impacted by the incredible love of Miriam, and they will miss her so very deeply every day.

House transportation bill seen as bad public policy


he recent commentary by U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, about the transportation bill (“Investing in infrastructure will help shore up economy,” Feb. 29) certainly sounded like a great accomplishment. Closer examination reveals Lou is not telling us everything. The House of Representatives’ Natural Resources Committee approved what Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood calls “the worst transportation bill I’ve ever seen during 35 years of public service.” LaHood spent 14 years in Congress, serving as a Republican representative from Illinois. He told a news outlet that Congress always came together in the past to support transportation, but HR 7 is the most partisan transportation bill he’s ever seen. For 30 years, federal transportation legislation has allocated a small portion of the national gas tax to transit funding. But under the new five-year bill just passed by the House committee, funding for public transportation systems will disappear. That’s a bad public policy for all of us. David Martin Tunkhannock

Early screenings crucial in colon cancer prevention

Stalled Congress must get in gear E


T WOULD BE easy to call the gridlock in Congress laughable, except for the real impact it has on our everyday lives – such as the gridlock on highways. Case in point is the massive transportation spending bill, a confusion of practical and political priorities that lawmakers seem incapable of turning into clear federal policy. Since a five-year transportation funding plan expired in 2009, Congress has managed only a series of nine stopgap measures to keep federal gasoline taxes flowing back to the states. Lawmakers are in the throes of their latest attempt at a replacement plan, but the House and the Senate have strayed, seemingly oblivious to the date this month when the temporary highway bill expires. Of the two, the Senate is EDITORIAL BOARD

closer to having its act together. It forged a bipartisan approach to a two-year bill that would continue many current programs, including the use of gas taxes to support public transportation. That’s important federal policy of 30 years’ standing that must be retained. Still, the Senate bill has been hit with a blizzard of distracting amendments, including one to strip mandated contraceptive coverage from the federal health care law. Please! The House, meanwhile, weighed in with a stinker of a transportation bill that would have scrapped the guaranteed transit support and helped pay for expanded road projects through more offshore drilling, including in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

very year during March, medical professionals, patients, family members and others observe National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month – a time when concerned individuals raise awareness about the incidence of colorectal cancer. The message is straightforward: There are simple steps we can take to prevent and diagnose this disease. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cancer killer in America, claiming more than 40,000 lives every year. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the state’s colorectal cancer incidence and mortality rates are higher than the national average (57.9 per 100,000 compared to U.S. average of 52). Fortunately, however, colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable and easily detected cancers – if screening occurs early enough. Regular colorectal screenings can detect polyps that can be removed before they become cancerous. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine was consistent with the value of colonoscopy for this purpose, demonstrating a 50 percent decrease in colon cancer deaths in patients who had adenomatous colon polyps removed. Whether you’re male or female, follow these guidelines, based on the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommendations, beginning at age 50 (age 45 if African-American): • Have a fecal occult blood test yearly; or

If you have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer, colorectal polyps or inflammatory bowel disease, talk with your health care professional about earlier screening No matter what your age, you should know colorectal cancer risk factors, symptoms and your family history. Make screening tests part of your healthy life. Talk with your doctor about the colorectal screening options available, using the above list as a guide. Colorectal cancer is highly preventable, treatable and often curable when detected early. Do the right thing for yourself and your family: Get screened early. Dr. Thomas J.

Writer believes mandate will hurt service members


resident Barack Obama’s push of his unconstitutional health care mandate is now taking a shot at military personnel and veterans. Obama’s plan calls for increases between 30 percent and 78 percent in Tricare annual premiums for the first year. After that, the plan will impose five-year increases ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent – more than three times current levels – in hopes it will push service members out of Tricare and into “Obamacare.” Not included in these cuts are civilian unionized defense employees. How are we letting this happen? Raymond Pick Kingston

Burning of Quran required no apology from Obama


omething is wrong in this world.

and 10 people, including four Americans, are killed. President Obama degrades America by apologizing. Where are we going? There were no apologies to America for the deaths (murders). James P. West Shavertown

Poor management blamed for downfall of USPS


previously challenged postal management to not close the mail processing center in Scranton and to increase service, not decrease it. By announcing that not only the Scranton facility will close, but 11 other processing facilities, including Reading, Lancaster, Williamsport and Erie, the U.S. Postal Service management has failed miserably to provide any evidence that its mission is to save the USPS and not dismantle it from within. As I have seen in the last five years, bad and subversive management decisions have pushed the USPS to the precipice of nothingness. I recently read a letter to the editor about cutting costs, referring to USPS commercials. I’d like to expand on where costs can be cut. Pay for performance bonuses: How can a company projected to lose $14 billion still hand out bonuses, spot awards, etc.? Detail assignments: When a valued member of the postal service management team fills in a vacancy in another facility and area, not only do they receive salary and compensation, but also per diem such as travel, meals and, if far enough, hotel accommodations. How much is this cost annually? A football field-sized behemoth known as the Flats Sequencing System: The USPS is into this machine roughly $1.4 billion, and it has been referred to as a “boondoggle.” It isn’t known when, or even if, there will be cost savings. Second ounce free: This was recently announced so that major mailers essentially will pay the one-ounce price for up to two ounces of mail. How can a corporation that’s bleeding money have giveaways like this? Keep in mind, since 2004 the USPS has had a decrease of 135,909 employees, but a net increase of 822 headquarters positions. Why are they necessary? These are some of the facts that our elected representatives should be looking into and have investigated externally. When these closings and consolidations go into effect, it will be a sad day for what was once the U. S. Postal Service. I’m afraid when the dust settles history will not be kind to not only the interests who destroyed the Postal Service, but also to those who stood idly by and let it happen.

shals determined that the structure fire was “a set fire” and is under investigation. Jones said the apartment building was a total loss. The second and third floors on the 135 side of the building collapsed into the first floor and the third floor of the other half collapsed into the second floor, he said. Hazleton Code Enforcement Officer Richard Wech said the building presents an “imminent danger” and the owner,

Sonny Patel, who also owns a Pantry Quik around the corner, had contacted a demolition contractor. “Our biggest concern right now is just to alleviate it,” Wech said. He expects the building will be torn down within the next day or two. Chris Lehman said his parents, Louis and Rose Fedullo, were forced from their home next door, which sustained heavy damage. “From what we were told by the fire chief and some Hazleton police officers, they suspect it was arson simply because someone set a chair on fire on the porch the night before,” Lehman said.

arrived and learned from bystanders the two men were still trapped inside. Firefighters entered the thirdfloor apartment through a rear door accessed from an outside staircase at the back of the building and carried the limp bodies of the two men down the staircase. Delaney performed CPR on one of the men himself. Five additional residents of the building, a house divided into several apartments, also escaped from the first floor prior to the arrival of firefighters. A neighbor who did not wish to be identified said she, a family member and a resident of the building named Billy rushed into the home and helped carry the first-floor residents out. Billy, who did not want to speak to media or give his full name, tried to help the men from the third-floor apartment as well, but was turned back by the flames, she said. James Johnson, 48, was one of the residents who escaped the fire. He said he has lived in the home on and off for three years. “I was downstairs and all of a sudden the fire came… from upstairs… it was coming down,” Johnson said. “I came running out.” Red Cross aiding victims The Red Cross of Wyoming Valley will provide shelter and other aid to the victims of the fire. The Red Cross will put the fire victims up in a hotel for at least three nights, provide monetary aid for them to buy essential goods to satisfy their immediate needs and make psychological counseling available. All victims lost medications in the fire, Red Cross volunteer Mina Hontz said, and finding replacements for them was the Red Cross’ first priority Tuesday night. Firefighters brought the fire under control within about 30 minutes, and completed their work at the house by 8 p.m., though the fire remains under investigation by state police fire marshals and city fire investigators. Delaney would not comment on the possible cause of the fire while it is under investigation. The flames were confined to the building’s second and third floors. Boice and Evans said the

flood insurance and personal savings, and the rest borrowed. The diner had up to 6 feet of water inside when the Susquehanna River swelled to historic levels. “I’m invested for the future,” he said. “A future without floods, I hope. This is our place – our life.” As plates filled with breakfast food whizzed by, customers marveled at the diner’s spanking-new look. Orange walls, shiny stainless steel, black-and-white booths, granite table tops and new menus brought wide eyes and big grins from customers. “We’ve been coming here for years,” said Bridget Sassi, of Inkerman. “It’s so family oriented.” Jeanann Robbins, also of Inkerman, said she and Sassi had “bounced around” from place to place waiting for Andy’s to reopen.

THE TIMES LEADER sion into subjects such as contraception and the separation of church and state. “During this campaign there has been discussion about all sorts of issues,” Romney said in Canton. “I keep bringing it back to more jobs, less debt and smaller government. That’s what my campaign is about.” The fourth candidate in the race, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, was hoping for his first victory in the one remaining caucus state, Alaska. (Voters in Wyoming were also caucusing) Paul campaigned hard in North Dakota and appeared there election night, but came up unavailing. With his three victories and strong showing in Ohio, Romney added considerably to his lead among delegates. But the results continued to flash caution signs. He trailed Santorum and Gingrich, respectively, among the most conservative voters in Ohio and Georgia, according to exit polls. He also showed continued weakness among evangelical Christians, perhaps because of concerns about his Mormon faith. While those voters — who represent the base of the party — are likely to rally behind the eventual winner, the resistance has kept Romney from wrapping up the nominating fight as quickly as he would

like. Overall, 437 delegates were at stake Tuesday, considerably more than in the 12 previous contests combined; 1,144 delegates are needed to secure the GOP nomination. Even before the first ballots were cast, Romney was assured a victory in Tuesday’s delegate count, thanks in part to the organizational failings of his main rivals. Paul was the only Republican other than RomneytoqualifyfortheballotinVirginia, one of the larger states voting Tuesday and another important target for both political parties in November. Santorum also forfeited more than a dozen Ohio delegates by failing to qualify representatives in several congressional districts, including the one in which he held his election-night party. The shortfall underscored the advantage that Romney has maintained throughout the ups and downs of the turbulent nominating fight: his big financial and organizational advantages. Both were brought to bear on Super Tuesday. Repeating a pattern seen throughout the contest, Romney vastly outspent Santorum on the television airwaves, strafing his chief rival with a relentless barrage of negative advertising. Wilkes-Barre firefighters were called back to put out hot spots at two vacant houses at 27 and 31 Academy St. in Wilkes-Barre that were destroyed in a fire early Tuesday morning.

The city obtained an emergency demolition order Tuesday afternoon to raze the two buildings for safety, McLaughlin said.

Penguins get iced


King’s guard Celia Rader drives the ball around William Paterson’s Floriana Borova.

Her secret’s suddenly out of the bag Sharp-shooting prowess of King’s guard Celia Rader was put on display for NCAA. By DEREK LEVARSE

Around the region, it’s hardly a secret. From her high school days at Scranton Prep to her three seasons playing guard for King’s, Celia Rader has been known on the court as a dangerous shooter. UP NEXT After this past weekNCAA Division end, the NCAA tournaIII tournament ment field knows it too. Third round Rader, a junior guard • King’s vs. for the Lady Monarchs, Emmanuel tied the all-time record 5 p.m., Friday for three-pointers in an Amherst, Mass. NCAA Division III women’s tournament game, connecting on nine of them to help lift King’s to a wild 64-63 win over William Paterson in the second round. Despite hitting five in the first half alone, Rader found herself open down the stretch, keying a double-digit rally with four more in the game’s final four minutes. “Celia’s our best shooter. It’s just that she’s been hurt for a couple weeks,” King’s coach Brian Donoghue said. “To be honest, I think in our league play, (opponents) probably secure her a little bit more. The fact is that there’s not a lot of film on her recently because she’s been out. “I’m sure they knew who she was, but maybe not the range she has or some of the things we try to get her loose on.” Certainly the Lady Monarchs’ next opponent will know all about her.

Matt Rust comes around the corner of the goal against St. John Tuesday night at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Shorthanded goals help St. John’s get past WBS


WILKES-BARRE TWP. – During their first two meetings against the St. John’s IceCaps, the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins were victorious in both contests thanks to a total of four shorthanded goals. On Tuesday when the IceCaps made their first trip to Wilkes-Barre, the roles were reversed. St. John’s scored three goals on their first three shots and had two shorthanded tallies to beat the Penguins, 5-2. “There’s no explanation for it,” said Zach Sill, regarding the six shorthand-





ed goals that have resulted in the three meetings against the two teams. “If we’re going to win these games, we have to capitalize on our special teams and we can’t afford to give up shorthanded goals. The loss drops the Penguins 33-19-

2-5 and keeps them in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of Hershey. The Penguins have lost three out of their last five games and are now 12-13-2-2 at home. Despite equaling St. John’s in scoring chances and outshooting them 11-4 in the first period, the IceCaps built a 3-0 lead by connecting on their first three shots of the game. John Albert scored a shorthanded tally to put St. John’s on the board at 4:48, followed by a power play sequence that saw both Matt Rust and Zach Sill hobbled after blocking shots before Carl Klingberg connected to give the IceCaps a 2-0 lead.

“I didn’t know what the heck was going on. It was mayhem,” Sill said of the power play sequence. “The first shot hit Rust, went back to their guy and he fed it over to (Paul) Postma for a onetimer and it hit me. That was a pretty good game plan by them.” Former Penguin Jason DeSantis scored with a shot from the high point less than a minute later to put the Penguins down 3-0 and bring an early end for Scott Munroe in goal, who failed to stop all three shots he faced. Munroe was replaced by Patrick Killeen. “I’m sure he’d like one or two of See PENS, Page 4B

Where in the world will legend of Tiger stand?

For what appears to be the first time in the 74-year history of the PIAA Wrestling Championships, the 56 finalists will not be the only ones under the spotlight. In a proposal last year to save time and be more wrestler friendly, the PIAA decided to change the schedule for this weekend’s tournament at Giant Center in Hershey. That means all four placing bouts in each classification – championship, third, fifth and seventh – will all

In previous years, the 2A finals started at 2:30 p.m., which was following the third, fifth and seventh-place bouts, which started at approximately 12:30 p.m. This year, both will kick off at 2 p.m. The Class 3A championship See WRESTLING, Page 4B

He will come back and play very, very well. Whether he breaks my record is another issue. I still think he will. But he still has to go do it.” If not, Woods might have to settle for another standard. The next step below the majors are the World Golf Championships, and Woods has amassed an

DORAL, Fla. — Tiger Woods already has left his own mark in world golf. History will decide what it means. The number that defines greatness in golf is 18. It has been that way since 1986, when Jack Nicklaus won his 18th professional major at the Masters. And it will stay that way unless — or until — Woods wins the five more majors he needs to pass him. “While he has been gone for 2½ years, these guys who have all See GOLF, Page 5B

Crosby cleared for contact

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has been cleared for contact, a big step toward his return from concussion-like symptoms. Crosby went through drills with his teammates on Tuesday, the first time he’s been a full participant in practice since the symptoms returned after a loss to Boston on Dec. 5. The 24-year-old Crosby says he will play at the moment he is symptom free, but there remains no timetable for his return. The Penguins continue a four-game homestand on Wednesday against Toronto. Crosby missed more than 10 months following a pair of hits to the head in January 2011. He had two goals in his season debut against the New York Islanders, his only goals in the last 14 months.

Flyers retire Howe’s No. 2

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers have retired former defenseman Mark Howe’s No. 2 and raised the number to the rafters. Howe was honored before Tuesday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings. Howe is a pro scout for the Red Wings and players for both teams stayed on the bench to watch the ceremony. Howe is Philadelphia’s career leader in goals, assists and points for a defenseman. He played for the Flyers from 1982-92 and was a three-time Norris Trophy finalist. Howe said during the ceremony, “it was as if I was born to become a Flyer.” He is the fifth Flyer to have his number retired, joining Bernie Parent, Barry Ashbee, Bill Barber and Bobby Clarke. Howe was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last November. Gordie Howe, one of the all-time NHL greats, received a standing ovation from Flyers fans when he was introduced.









Saints GM and coach admit blame By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

Almost a week after the NFL pointed to them for failing to stop a bounty program involving some two dozen Saints players, coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis apologized and took the blame for violations that “happened under our watch.” “These are serious violations and we understand the negative impact it has had on our game,” Payton and Loomis added. “Both of us have made it clear within our organization that this will never happen again, and make that same promise to the NFL and most importantly to all of our fans,” Payton and Loomis said in a joint statement Tuesday. Payton and Loomis also said New Orleans owner Tom Benson “had nothing to do” with the bounty pool. “We acknowledge that the violations disclosed by the NFL during their inves-

tigation of our club happened under our watch. We take full responsibility,” they said. The league’s investigation, released last Friday, said the bounty program was funded primarily by players for the past three seasons and was overseen by former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. He admitted to running the program and apologized within hours after the report surfaced. The NFL said it confirmed Benson was unaware of the program, and that he told Loomis to stop it immediately, but that Loomis did not. The league also said Payton, though not directly involved, was aware of the bounty pool, but did nothing to stop it. Williams now is defensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams. He met with NFL security officials on Monday as part of the league’s ongoing investigation. Once it concludes — the league says

there is no timetable — Roger Goodell likely will hand out the stiffest penalties of his 51⁄2 years as commissioner. Goodell has frequently taken a hard line on any action that threatens player safety. He suspended Detroit’s Ndamukong Suh for two games for stomping on an opponent last season; banned Pittsburgh’s James Harrison for one game after a series of flagrant hits that culminated in a collision with Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy’s helmet; and has ramped up the amount of fines for what the league terms “egregious hits.” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said before handing out any penalties, Goodell will review the information with his staff and consult with others, including the union and player leaders. The players’ union has not seen a full report of the investigation, so it can’t be certain if Goodell will levy punishment under the on-field discipline or the personal conduct policy. There’s a major

Ewing leads class into Hall

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Georgetown great Patrick Ewing and former Kansas star Clyde Lovellette lead a 10-member class that will be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in November. The class was announced Tuesday in Kansas City. The two post players will be joined by North Carolina’s Phil Ford, Wyoming’s Kenny Sailors, Grambling’s Willis Reed and Winston-Salem State’s Earl Monroe. Also inducted will be Joe B. Hall, who followed Adolph Rupp as the coach of Kentucky, and Dave Robbins, who won more than 700 games at Virginia Union. Businessmen Jim Host and Joe Dean will go in as contributors. The induction ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 18 at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. The following night, Kansas, Saint Louis, Texas A&M and Washington will play in the semifinals of the CBE Classic at the nearby Sprint Center. OLYMPICS

Coach K not thinking 2016

Mike Krzyzewski says he is only thinking about this year, not about a potential third Olympics as U.S. basketball coach. A day after Cleveland rookie Kyrie Irving said he found out Krzyzewski planned to lead the U.S. again in 2016, the Duke coach says he is focused only on the remainder of the Blue Devils’ season and the London Games. Both Krzyzewski and USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, in statements provided Tuesday by USA Basketball, deny that discussions about the future have taken place. Irving said he would not pursue a chance to play for Australia this summer in hopes of playing for the U.S. in four years. Colangelo says Irving will be given consideration if he continues to play as well as he is now. NFL

Foster signs 5-year deal

HOUSTON — Texans running back Arian Foster has signed a five-year, $43.5 million deal to stay in Houston. An undrafted free agent in 2009, Foster made $525,000 last season. He was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards. He then ran for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He was due to become a restricted free agent next week, but his agent, Mike McCartney, said Monday that Foster was eager to work out a deal with the Texans. He’ll make $18 million in base salary next season, plus incentives. -- The Associated Press

distinction, because players can appeal on-field punishment to independent arbitrators Art Shell and Ted Cottrell. Appeals under the personal conduct policy are heard by Goodell and other league officials. “The commissioner has broad authority to impose discipline for violation of league rules. We’re not going to put it in a category right now,” Aiello said. The NFL hasn’t cited specific players, but fines and suspensions are probable for those found to have participated in the bounty program. “We take this issue seriously and we continue to look into it,” union spokesman George Atallah said. Goodell fined the New England Patriots $250,000 and their coach, Bill Belichick, $500,000 for the Spygate scandal in 2007, when the team was caught illegally videotaping the Jets’ sideline. New England also was stripped of a firstround draft pick.


New York Mets starting pitcher Johan Santana throws during the first inning of a spring training game against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Santana is smooth in return to mound The Associated Press

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — To Johan Santana and the New York Mets, this was a most pleasant spring sight. The lefty ace returned to the mound for his first game against major league hitters in 18 months and pitched two scoreless innings Tuesday as a Mets split squad beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-6. Santana walked his first batter on five pitches. But a single marked the only other runner against Santana, who threw 17 of 29 pitches for strikes. The two-time Cy Young winner last pitched to big league hitters on Sept. 2, 2010, in a game in Atlanta. Two weeks later he underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder. “Finally I had an opportunity to go out there and finally get the first one out of the way,” Santana said. “... I was excited about today. Even as I was preparing myself prior to the game, I was anxious to go out there and do it.”

Kyle Kendrick each threw two innings, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over Toronto. Lee yielded a hit in the first and second before giving way to Kendrick, who allowed a hit, struck out two and walked none.

LONDON — On the other hand ... The British government has rejected advice from the Olympic team’s top doctor that athletes should not shake hands at the London Games to avoid germs that could make them sick. Government health advisers seemed perplexed by the guidelines, which Olympic hopefuls derided as “rude” and “pointless.” By the end of the day, the British Olympic Association had softened its stance. Yes, the athletes will be able to greet the 10,000 visiting Olympians and hundreds of dignitaries with handshakes. They’ll just have to make sure they wash thoroughly later. “Team GB’s 550 athletes will of course warmly welcome their fellow competitors from around the world this summer — there is no question about that,” BOA communications director Darryl Seibel said Tuesday. “We are not advising our athletes to avoid shaking hands. We are simply reminding them to follow common-sense measures by maintaining good hand hygiene to minimize the risk of becoming ill,” he said. During a briefing with a small group of reporters, BOA chief medical officer Dr. Ian McCurdie pointed out that the Olympic Village environment could be a “pretty hostile one” for infections and said a handshake ban was “not such a bad thing.” His comments went viral in Britain, drawing derision on TV and radio. Even the Department of Health urged Olympians to disregard the advice. “It goes without saying that we should all wash our hands regularly to keep them clean and prevent spreading bugs,” the department said in a statement. “But there’s no reason why people shouldn’t shake hands at the Olympics.” And athletes took to Twitter to insist that they would still shake on it at the games. “Can’t we just carry around a small bottle of alcohol hand gel & not be so rude to everyone we meet?” tweeted Pete Reed, an Olympic champion in the coxless four. Another Olympic champion rower, Zac Purchase, tweeted that the advice seemed a “bit pointless unless u r going to run around with disinfectant 4 every surface you come into contact with.” But triathlete Hollie Avil, who was forced to pull out of the 2008 Beijing Olympics after picking up a virus, quipped: “Maybe I shook too many hands in Beijing.” The BOA’s clarification is now merely about minimizing the risk of germ transmission during the Olympics. “After years of training and sacrifice, the last thing an athlete would want to do is unintentionally compromise or undermine their ability to perform at their very best at the Olympic Games, and basic, common-sense measures can go a long way toward making certain that doesn’t happen,” Seibel said.











Common wrinkle pressed WVC teams to limit By JOHN MEDEIROS


This was not the kind of postseason the Wyoming Valley Conference was looking for. In District 2 tournament play, WVC teams went a disappointing 6-12. Of those six wins, one came at the expense of another conference foe (Dallas’ overtime victory against Holy Redeemer) and another came against a District 4 team (Hazleton Area over Williamsport). There were a variety of reasons for the struggles ... or maybe not. “Their half-court trap and defense was pretty sufficating,” Wyoming Valley West coach Curt Lloyd said after a loss to Wallenpaupack. He also said that playoff game was his team’s worst shooting performance since a December game against North Pocono, another District 2 squad. “We handled their press better than we did before (in a December game),” Abington Heights coach Vince Bucciarelli said after downing Hazleton Area. “In that (December) game, we had 16-18 turnovers in the first half alone.” “You just can’t simulate what they do in practice, no matter how good your kids are. It’s just really tough,” Nanticoke coach Alan Yendrzeiwski said after

losing to Honesdale. While not every team lost because of Lackawanna League members using presses, it was a recurring theme for many coaches after games in the past two weeks. SENIOR MOMENTS: Here’s a look at the players who finished their high school careers this season ... Berwick’s Geena Palermo was third on the Bulldogs in scoring and posted a season-best 12 points against Dallas on Jan.30. Tyler Bailey (0.5 ppg) hit her first three-pointer in the Bulldogs’ final win of the season, Feb. 13 against Coughlin. Coughlin loses six of its topseven scorers in Dannah Hayward, Danielle Georgetti, Cayla Sebastian, Kayla Eaton, Shelby Flaherty and Sierra Williams. The Crusaders also lose depth provided by Gerdwine Bouedeau, Jawana Harper and Shanequah Zigler (40 games combined), leaving just four returners for next season. Kayla Gegaris, Crestwood’s No. 2 scorer, averaged 12 ppg. during a January stretch. Sarah Andrews, fourth in scoring, finished strong with a seasonbest 14 against Coughlin on Feb.


where else. The Colts are expected to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first pick in April’s draft. Manning’s impending departure marks the end of a remarkably successful era that included the 2006 league title. He started every meaningful game for 13 seasons in Indy, 227 straight including the playoffs, and took the Colts from perennial also-ran to one of the NFL’s model franchises. In the two decades pre-dating his arrival, the Colts won 116 games, one division title and made the playoffs three times. With Manning taking snaps, the Colts have won 150 games, eight division titles, two AFC championships and the franchise’s first Super Bowl since moving from Baltimore in 1984. Indybroketheleaguerecordfor most regular-season wins in a decade (115), tied Dallas’ league record for most consecutive playoff appearances (nine) and the success changed Indy from a basketball town to an NFL town.

means a great deal to me.” But things have changed since last summer. Now it looks like the NFL’s only four-time MVP, and a former Super Bowl champion, won’t be wearing No. 18 for Indy. With a $28 million bonus payment due Thursday to Manning, his neck problems, and the fact that the Colts own the No. 1 pick in April’s draft, the Colts seem to have deemed it too risky — and too pricey — to keep the longtime franchise quarterback, who will turn 36 later this month. The twists and turns of a public debate between Manning and Irsay, who have been friends for more than a decade, created the sense the two had been fighting. Irsay twice issued statements to deny a rift. Still, with the Colts in full rebuilding mode, Irsay has been expected by many to play for the future and let Manning try to chase a second Super Bowl ring some-


16. Amy Jesikiewicz had a season-best 14 against the Crusaders on Jan. 13, and Carly Hislop scored four points in each of her final four games. A young Dallas squad had inside presence Sara Flaherty, who finished sixth on the team at 4.4 ppg. She had a January stretch where she scored at a 7.3 per game clip. Sabrina Zurek had her season-best, seven points, three times, including consecutive wins in December. The Mountaineers were 7-0 in games when Zurek scored. GAR’s Unique Twyman was fifth on the team at 4.8 ppg and started the season at 6.9 ppg. in a 1-3 start. Jessica Montigney had 10 points in three games. Elissa Domzalski played in 14 games for the Grenadiers. Danielle Tuzinski reached 1,000 points for Hanover Area this year. Averaging 17.2 ppg, she hit the 20-point mark seven times, and the Hawkeyes were 4-3 in those games. Julia Smith was fifth in scoring (3.3 ppg.) but finished the season strong by averaging 6.0 in Hanover Area’s final three games. Josie Bachman, Becca Zamonas, Annie Bono and Alyssa Pfeil were Nos. 3-6 in scoring for Hazleton Area, with Bono and Zamonas combining to shoot 80

Holy Redeemer’s Paige Makowski, Shannon Murray and Julia Wignot were among the team’s top-five scorers and all shot 67 percent or better from the free-throw line. Kirby Smith scored 16 points in limited action. Shaina Dougherty filled a key reserve role, posting 11 points. Shannon Claherty got into eight games and had a field goal. A big chunk of Lake-Lehman’s squad graduates, including Nikki Sutliff, who made 32 threepointers and scored 12.7 ppg. Emily Leskowsky (2.4 ppg.), Marissa Moosic (1.5 ppg.) and Carol Mosier (2.7 ppg.) all played significant minutes. Sarah Brooks had a season-best three points against Tunkhannock in December. Meyers went 10-6 after a slow start, thanks to the efforts of top scorers Amy Kowalszyk (8.1 ppg.) and Jazma Robertson (7.0 ppg.). Kowalszyk (38 threes) had nine double-digit scoring games. Robertson scored at least six points in 12 of the Mohawks’ first 14 games. Both had 10

She had a season-best eight points against Salem Christian in December and closed her career with 4.3 ppg. in her last three tilts. Nanticoke’s three seniors -Katie Wolfe (12.9 ppg., 70 percent FT shooting), Sammy Gow (10.4 ppg., 56 threes) and Cassie Yalch (2.6 ppg., 14 threes) -- have yet to finish their careers.

Shaffer made 51 threes. Gill (73 percent) and Bosak (79 percent) excelled at the freethrow line. And Koehn had eight points in a couple of games this season. Shaffer had 37 points in her final two games. Pittston Area’s Grace O’Neill lived behind the arc, making 54 three-pointers. The Patriots’ No.2 scorer averaged 13.2 ppg. in nine January contests. Charley Zanta was a key reserve who had a season-best five points in a win over Mountain View in December. Tunkhannock says goodbye to

three of its top-four offensive threats. Lisa Kintner and Kassie Williams combined for nearly 24 ppg. and provided an insideoutside 1-2 punch. Amelia Ayers (4.6 ppg.) hit the scoresheet in 21 of 22 games. Jenna Custer had a pair of season-best four-point games. The quartet combined for 64 percent of the Tigers’ offense. Sara Radzwilka led Wyoming Area with 13 three-pointers and was fourth on the team in scoring (4.3 ppg). She had three 10-point games and had 18 in her final two games. Wyoming Seminary loses four of its top-five scorers -- Jessica Neare, Ann Romanowski, Haley Karg and Jane Henry. Neare was the top scorer, three-point threat (11 threes) and free-throw shooter (71 percent).

The Penguins cut the lead to one in the second period thanks to a Brian Gibbons goal. With less than two minutes to play, Gibbons split the St. John’s defense in the slot and broke in on IceCaps goaltender Eddie Pasquale, roofing a shot over his glove to make it 3-2. “After we made it 3-1 that gave us some life coming into the room. We had a good second period and made it 3-2 going into the third and gave ourselves a chance to win it,” Gibbons said.

hit 12-of-20 shots from behind the arc. Her 27 points against William Paterson were a career-best. “I think that’s kind of just my goal. I feel like shooting threes is what I do,” Rader said. “I’m not a post player. I’m not very big. That’s just what I bring to the team.” Last season in particular saw Rader score in bunches, going on shooting streaks that were catalysts for several King’s wins. The opportunities may have gone down for her in 2012, but when Rader connected from long range on the game’s first possession, it was a familiar sight for teammates. When the next three shots fell as well, the Lady Monarchs knew it was going to be one of those nights. “Oh yeah, when she hit the first couple threes,” senior Samantha Simcox said. “I mean, when she gets going, it’s hard

to stop her. And I think she needed a game like that.” “I think more important than (the coaches) knowing it is that Celia knew it and her teammates knew it,” Donoghue said of Rader’s shooting groove. “And they did a great job of finding her in the right space where she could catch and shoot. She just got it going and was huge for us.” One imagines there will be much less space for Rader to shoot against the Saints. And should King’s win Friday, the likely opponent in Saturday’s national quarterfinals would be undefeated Amherst, the top-ranked team in the country and the defending national champion. The road will get tougher, but Rader wasn’t fazed in taking down the No. 8 Pioneers this past weekend. “No, I wasn’t intimidated,” Rader said. “I think people should be intimidated of us.”











Bear harvest bigger than announced, breaks state record By The Times Leader staff

HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe today announced that the final bear harvest results from the state’s three recently concluded seasons show that hunters harvested 4,350 bears, which sets a new record as the highest in Pennsylvania history.

amazing record. When he last won a WGC at Firestone in 2009, that gave him16 world titles out of the 32 he played, an astounding rate of 50 percent. What does that mean? For one thing, he has padded his bank account. Woods has made more than $22.2 million in the WGCs alone, which is nearly 25 percent of his career PGA Tour earnings. His official WGC money is more than all but 25 players have made in their careers. More than money, and more than trophies that probably are packed away in a box, it means that Woods won 16 events against the best players in golf. The fields are small, and they tend to include players from overseas who are just getting started (Louis Oosthuizen) or might never be heard from again (Shiv Kapur). But for most of their 13-year existence, they have included at least the top 50 in the world. The World Golf Championships are still not what they should be. Along with bringing together the best players from all corners of the globe, it would help to take the tournaments around the world. And if they are mostly going to be in America, it would be better to move them to iconic venues instead of merging them with former PGA Tour events, which is what happened at Doral.

On Dec. 5, a preliminary harvest of 3,968 was announced, but that figure did not include complete reports from all check stations. Bears were harvested in 54 of the state’s 67 counties. The top five bear harvest counties this year, once again, all come from the Northcentral Region. However, the final numbers caused a

shifting in the order of counties in that list, as well as in several region rankings. After all reports were reviewed, Potter propelled into the top spot with 399 bears harvested (148 in 2010); followed by Tioga, 381 (184); Lycoming, 336 (230); McKean, 258 (92); and Clinton 205 (250). Final county harvests by region (with 2010 figures in paren-

theses) are: Northeast: Wayne, 208 (93); Sullivan, 180 (57); Bradford, 126 (38); Pike, 116 (134); Luzerne, 99 (58); Susquehanna, 92 (41); Monroe, 88 (69); Wyoming, 57 (22); Carbon, 45 (35); Columbia, 26 (20); Lackawanna, 25 (19); and Northumberland, 11 (3). Southeast: Dauphin, 46 (20);

They deserve a higher status based on the players they attract and the winners they produce. Hunter Mahan joined elite company two weeks ago when he won the Match Play Championship and became only the sixth player to win multiple WGC events. The others are familiar names — Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Geoff Ogilvy and Darren Clarke. Martin Kaymer won the HSBC Champions last November and became the 10th player with a WGC title and a major. He joined Woods, Mickelson, Els, Ogilvy, Clarke, Mike Weir, Stewart Cink, David Toms and Vijay Singh. The WGC event this week at Doral used to travel to Europe every other year until 2006. Woods has won it six times on six courses in four countries. That gives it a little more punch than winning the Bridgestone Invitational seven times, all at Firestone. “I think Tiger gave them credibility by winning 14 of the first 20, or whatever it was. He won almost every one of them,” Ogilvy said. “If you do look at the list of guys who have won them, generally, at that time they were one of the best in the world.” That’s because the best in the world are there. In that respect, it can make them the most difficult events to win next to the majors. The majors have history and prestige, and with that comes pressure that cannot be compared with other events. Paul Azinger is famous for saying cash and prestige are the only

things that made him choke. The WGCs are heavy on cash. These aren’t the best 74 players in the world at Doral, rather 74 top players who qualified through the world ranking of the money lists on the six major tours. Then again, the majors have their share of players who can’t be considered serious contenders — aging champions at the Masters, amateur qualifiers at the Opens, club pros at the PGA Championship. What might boost the credibility of the WGCs is to expand the field and introduce a cut. To some, the WGCs have the appearance of free money. The courses? No one can argue with Firestone, which once hosted a PGA Championship. And while Doral has produced a winning score of at least 16-under par the last four years, a

course doesn’t have to have high scores to be a good test. “I don’t think Doral is close to being a top 100 course, but it finds good players,” Ogilvy said. Asked the difference between majors and World Golf Championships, Clarke said there was “absolutely no difference whatsoever,” except for the title. One is a major. One is not. “The title is the obvious thing,” he said. “As players, we are judged by major championships. We’re not judged by World Golf Championships. We’re not judged by regular tournaments. We’re judged by majors. It’s easy for me to say now that I’ve got one, but I would have told you the same if I hadn’t got one. “It means more because of tradition and history. There’s added pressure because of that.”

Celtics rally in time to defeat Rockets The Associated Press

BOSTON — Kevin Garnett grabbed 13 rebounds to pass Shaquille O’Neal and move into 12th on the NBA’s career list, and Paul Pierce scored seven of his 30 points in overtime on Tuesday night to lead the Boston Celtics to a 97-92 victory over the Houston Rockets. Boston has won five straight since the All-Star break, including two in a row in overtime. Houston has lost four in a row. Ray Allen scored 21, including a 3-pointer with 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter to give Boston the lead. But Rajon Rondo missed an open layup with a chance to clinch it in regulation, and Goran Dragic tied it for the Rockets. Luis Scola had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and Samuel Dalembert had 11 points and 17 boards for Houston. Hawks 101, Pacers 96 INDIANAPOLIS — Josh Smith had 27 points and nine rebounds, leading the Atlanta Hawks to their third straight victory. Smith scored 13 points in the first quarter, 11 in the third, and fell three points shy of his season high. Jannero Pargo had 16 points, while Marvin Williams and Zaza Pachulia each scored 12 for the Hawks. David West scored a season-high 24 points for the Pacers, who have lost two straight. Danny Granger had 19 points and eight rebounds, and George Hill scored 15 points off the bench for Indiana. Pistons 88, Lakers 85 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Rodney Stuckey scored 34 points, and the Detroit Pistons overcame a tying shot by Kobe Bryant at the end of regulation, beating the Los Angeles Lakers in overtime. Bryant, who had tied the game at the buzzer to force the extra session, missed from 3-point range in the final seconds of overtime. Metta World Peace came up

Seton Hall routs Friars The Associated Press

Heat 108, Nets 78 MIAMI — LeBron James scored 21 points and capped his night by banking in a halfcourt shot, Chris Bosh added 20 points and the Miami Heat snapped a two-game slide by rolling past the New Jersey Nets. The win came with a cost: Dwyane Wade turned his right ankle late in the first half and did not return, finishing with 13 points. Wade missed six games earlier this season after spraining the same ankle, though the team said he could have returned to this one if needed. Mavericks 95, Knicks 85 DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points and bailed out the Mavericks after they lost the lead following a 71⁄2-minute scoreless stretch in the fourth quarter, and Dallas beat the New York Knicks. Nowitzki made a 14-foot fadeaway jumper with 4:34 left, starting a game-clinching, 14-0 run by the Mavericks in which their All-Star forward scored nine points.


Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Pavel Kubina (13 and Detroit Red Wings center Darren Helm (43) go for the puck in the first period of an NHL game Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Flyers top short-handed Red Wings PHILADELPHIA — Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, and Max Talbot scored goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. Ilya Bryzgalov allowed a goal to Henrik Zetterberg on Detroit’s first shot of the game. Johan Franzen made it 3-2 in the third. The Flyers won on the night they retired former defenseman Mark Howe’s No. 2 and raised the number to the rafters. Detroit was short-handed as it continued to chase the top spot in the Western Conference standings. Leading scorer Pavel Datsyuk (59 points), captain Nicklas Lindrstom, forward Todd Bertuzzi and goalie Jimmy Howard all sat out with injuries.


Misericordia Getts its big game-winning hit CLERMONT, Fla. – Mallory Getts drove in the game-winning run with a double in the last at-bat to lift the Misericordia University softball team to a 4-3 win over No. 18 Moravian on Tuesday. Jill Castaldi and Getts hit back-to-back doubles to complete a three-run, twoout rally in the bottom of the seventh. Trailing 3-1, Shawnna Beil drew a one-out walk and winning pitcher Caitlin Cromley walked with two outs. Castaldi ripped a tworun double off the rightcenter field fence to tie it, and Getts drove in the gamewinning run with a double off the fence. Kat LaBrie added an RBI single for the Cougars’ first run. Cromley went the distance with six strikeouts for the win. Earlier in the day, the Cougars fell to Elizabethtown, 5-1. Sam Hare had an RBI pinch-hit double against the Blue Jays.

NEW YORK — Jordan Theodore put on a show of slick passing and Seton Hall routed Providence 79-47 in the first round of the Big East tournament Tuesday night, a crucial victory for the Pirates’ NCAA tournament hopes. The senior guard set a career high with 13 assists to go with 13 points, and freshman forward Brandon Mobley scored a career-high 16 off the bench as the 10th-seeded Pirates (20-11) rebounded from a 28-point blowout at last-place DePaul in their regular-season finale Saturday. Herb Pope added 16 points for Seton Hall, which fell behind 9-0 in this one before dominating the rest of the way to reach 20 wins for the first time since 2003-04.

The Bobcats came in having lost 21 of their last 22 games, but seemed to get a spark after coach Paul Silas was ejected in the second quarter with the team trailing by 18. The Bobcats also got a big game from rookie center Bismack Biyombo, who battled toe-to-toe with Dwight Howard and had 10 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.

Top culinary students work through Metz


FBI busts Web hackers

A group of expert hackers who attacked governments and corporations around the globe has been busted after its ringleader — one of the world’s most-wanted and most-feared computer vandals — secretly became an informant for the FBI months ago, authorities announced Tuesday. Five people were charged in court papers unsealed in federal court in New York, and authorities revealed that a sixth person, Hector Xavier Monsegur, a legendary figure known in the hacking underworld as “Sabu,” has pleaded guilty. According to the charges, members of the group got their start as part of a large worldwide hacking organization known as Anonymous.


DALLAS -- Students of America’s most prestigious culinary school will soon get a taste of work in the Wyoming Valley. Metz Culinary Management, Dallas, has been approved to offer externship programs for students of the Culinary Institute of America at three locations where Metz provides cafeteria management services. Based in Hyde Park, N.Y., the institute is one of the

world’s most prestigious schools of cooking and hospitality management. Starting in June, one student each will be eligible to participate in an 18-week paid workstudy program at Wyoming Seminary, Kingston, and Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Wilkes-Barre. A third student will be assigned to a J.M. Smucker Co. facility in Ohio. Students selected for the program will earn course credit and receive a letter grade based

on their performance. Metz also is opening paid internship positions at those locations and others to culinary students at Pennsylvania College of Technology, Williamsport, and Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center. It marks the launch of an official internship program at Metz, a family owned company in business since 1994. Cheryl McCann, vice president of human resources for Metz, said the company anticipates needing to hire skilled re-

placements for retirees in coming years. The company has had success with Culinary Institute graduates in the past, she said, because they come with a solid knowledge base and technical skills that Metz can build on. “We think it’s definitely going to add value,” McCann said. “It will give us more people to pull from, plus we think there’s value in bringing someone with fresh and new ideas into an industry like ours.

KKR, Chesapeake team up

By JOSHUA FREED AP Business Writer

Stocks suffered their biggest losses in three months Tuesday, the first hiccup in a strong and steady rally to start the year. Wall Street worried about the global economy and waited while Greece pressured the last investors to sign on for its bailout. The Dow Jones industrial average gave up more than a quarter of its 745-point advance since Jan. 1, the best start to a year in the U.S. market since 1998. The sell-off, which spread west from Europe, also interrupted a period of unusual calm on Wall Street. Before Tuesday, the Dow had not fallen 100 points for 45 straight trading sessions, the longest streak since 2006. All but one of the 30 Dow stocks finished the day lower. Intel managed a gain of 7 cents. All 10 industry groups in the Standard & Poor’s 500 declined. Bank stocks, which typically take a hit when there is any reason to worry about Greece, led the declines, followed by industrial and materials companies, which depend on strength in the world economy. Bill Stone, chief investment strategist for PNC Wealth Management, called Tuesday’s decline “fairly rational,” considering how much the market has climbed and the economic worries in Greece and the rest of Europe. “You need the pullback to give people opportunities to want to get involved again,” Stone said. The price of gold fell $31.80 per ounce, or 2.1 percent, to $1,672.10 per ounce.

Philippines gaining jobs

Higher labor costs on China’s southern coast are causing some big foreign manufacturers to relocate to the Philippines. One company that left is returning, and another major garment maker is seriously considering a move. Philippines Trade Secretary Gregory Domingo said his country is seeing a spike in investor fact-finding missions.

Greece banks on board

Financier is convicted

Greece’s government on Tuesday said the country’s six major banks have agreed to participate in a bond-swap deal. Though Greece still needs many more creditors to sign up before the Thursday deadline, the banks’ inclusion is a relief to financial authorities and potentially persuasive for smaller bondholders. The Finance Ministry said the six banks have already agreed to participate or would recommend participation. The bond deal is an integral part of the country’s second package of international bailout loans.


By JUAN A. LOZANO Associated Press

HOUSTON — Former Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford, whose financial empire once spanned the Americas and made him fabulously wealthy, was convicted Tuesday of bilking his investors out of more than $7 billion through a Ponzi scheme he operated for 20 years. A day after telling U.S. District Judge David Hittner they were having trouble reaching a verdict, jurors convicted Stanford, 61, on 13 of 14 charges he faced, acquitting him on a single count of wire fraud stemming from Super Bowl tickets he allegedly used to bribe a regulator. “We are disappointed in the outcome. We expect to appeal,” Ali Fazel,

Investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Chesapeake Energy Corp. are teaming up to invest in U.S. oil and gas fields. The companies said Tuesday they will pool $250 million to buy new resources. KKR, which has invested in the energy sector for two decades, will contribute 90 percent of the money for the partnership. Chesapeake, the second-largest natural gas producer in the U.S., will contribute 10 percent. Chesapeake has been pushing to get access to more oil, which has become much more profitable to produce than natural gas.

A shorter civil trial before the same jury, in which prosecutors hoped to seize money from more than 30 Stanford-controlled accounts in countries including Switzerland, Britain and Canada, began later Tuesday. Stanford faces up to 20 years for the most serious charges against him. But if Hittner orders him to serve his sentences consecutively, Stanford could get up to 230 years in prison. Prosecutors say Stanford used investor money to fund a string of failed businesses, bribe regulators and pay for his lavish lifestyle, which included buying himself yachts and private jets. His attorneys portrayed Stanford as a visionary entrepreneur who made money for investors and conducted legitimate business deals.

one of Stanford’s attorneys, said after the hearing. He said he couldn’t comment further because of a gag order U.S. District Judge Stanford David Hittner placed on attorneys in the case. Prosecutors and Stanford’s family members declined to comment, but one of his investors, Cassie Wilkinson, welcomed the verdict. “As an investor, you have to doubt whether or not you were stupid or just taken advantage of. This relieves that doubt. It’s a vindication,” said Wilkinson, 62, who lives in Houston. She declined to say how much money she and her husband lost.

Let the warm-up begin! And indeed it will, starting today with uninterrupted sunshine and afternoon temperatures 15 degrees warmer than Tuesday. The sun is as strong now as it is on Oct. 6, strong enough to warm the topsoil and force out the crocus blooms this week. For sure, the sap is flowing and the buds are swelling on the maple trees. In our backyard, the witch hazel tree is starting to bloom. Thursday will be our warmest day of the week, with readings topping 60 for the first time since back on Dec. 5. About a quarter-inch of rain will come Thursday night, followed by colder weather heading into Saturday. - Tom Clark

NATIONAL FORECAST: Moisture feeding northward from the Gulf of Mexico will produce showers from Texas to the central Plains. Showers will be likely along a cold front from the central Plains to the northern Great Lakes, with a few snow showers over the arrowhead of Minnesota. Rain and snow will fall over the central Rockies to the north of low pressure passing through northern New Mexico.





BRICK OVEN In keeping with its name, pizza baked in a brick (usually domed) oven often fired by charcoal or embers.

ROUND THICK A classic American pie with a thick, doughy or chewy crust

TRAY, SAUCY Red is the dominant visual on this square or rectangular cut. Some say the critical question is: Are the tomatoes chunky? Some also may fit the bill of ‘sloppy pizza,’ which is no insult.

Dominick’s Café, 20 School St., Hudson, Plains Township

Bettelli’s Villa, 560 Kidder St., near the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre

ROUND, THIN, SWEET SAUCE A spoonful or so of sugar changes everything. Some recipes call for brown sugar and some for honey as well. Sweet is a matter of perspective.

here’s a new county manager in town, and a tipster told us one of the first questions he asked was, “Where can I get a good pizza?” He asked, so we asked. We asked you. Within hours of posting a survey on on Friday, we had hundreds upon hundreds of responses, 440 in total by Monday morning. If Northeastern Pennsylvania isn’t actually the pizza capital of the world, we don’t know what is. We broke our pizza-survey questions down into10 distinct categories, and you told us who you believe sells the best stuff in each. Some names came up again and again, and some names only occasionally, meaning familiarity breeds contentment – or maybe we should all break out of our individual pizza boxes, so to speak, and try something different on occasion. As for Mr. Robert Lawton, our new county manager? Has he found his bliss in a box or on a tray yet? Nope, not yet, he told us. But now, we hope, he has a pretty good road map.

Willingness to forgive can help bring love into a world of uncertainty Dear Abby: Several years ago you printed a poem about forgiveness in your column. It described very well the benefits of the practice, and it was accompanied by a sort of “forgiveness schedule” for every day of the week. I clipped the column and saved it, but over time I seem to have lost it. Could you please run this piece again? — Daniela in Toronto Dear Daniela: I’m glad to oblige. The poem you have requested, “Decide to Forgive,” was written by the late Robert Muller, former assistant secretary-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE general of the United Nations. Now, with so much turmoil going on in the nation and in the world, its sentiments are particularly relevant. This poem is part of a collection of letters, poems and essays that are collected in my booklet “Keepers” because so many Dear Abby readers had clipped them and continue to request that they be reprinted. Here is the poem you have requested: DECIDE TO FORGIVE Decide to forgive For resentment is negative


Resentment is poisonous Resentment diminishes and devours the self. Be the first to forgive, To smile and to take the first step And you will see happiness bloom On the face of your human brother or sister. Be always the first Do not wait for others to forgive For by forgiving You become the master of fate The fashioner of life A doer of miracles. To forgive is the highest, Most beautiful form of love. In return you will receive Untold peace and happiness. And here is the program for achieving a truly forgiving heart: SUNDAY: Forgive yourself.


MONDAY: Forgive your family. TUESDAY: Forgive your friends and associates. WEDNESDAY: Forgive across economic lines within your own nation. THURSDAY: Forgive across cultural lines within your own nation. FRIDAY: Forgive across political lines within your own nation. SATURDAY: Forgive other nations. Only the brave know how to forgive. A coward never forgives. It is not in his nature. Since I cannot reprint the continual avalanche of requests I receive for reprints, for those who desire them, my “Keepers” booklet can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Keepers Booklet, P.O.

Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 610540447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Many people have told me it makes a welcome gift for newlyweds, new parents, animal lovers, those who are grieving, and anyone who is recovering from an illness because it’s a quick and easy read, and filled with wisdom and humor on a wide variety of topics.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your will is strong, and what you want may indeed be what is best for everyone. However, you must be careful not to overpower others with your passion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The games you choose are hard enough on their own, so there’s no need to put up with team members who drag you down. Seek those who are warm, supportive and positive. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Multitasking will prove to be generally a rotten idea except in the instances of listening to audio books while traveling or making phone calls while you walk an unpopulated stretch of track or sidewalk. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll act in a vigorous and determined way to exert your authority and have a meaningful impact. You may spend time working out how you might alter the behavior and thinking of others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you’re feeling discouraged, you’ll rely too much on outer forces to shape your path. That’s why you need to make sure that you’re feeling enthusiastic. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll go into the day with a take-charge attitude, and you’ll use your knowledge to alter your circumstances. Your winner’s mindset is unstoppable. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As much as you may try to avoid being the center of attention, the eyeballs will still be trained on you. It has to be this way because you know what you’re doing and you need to teach others.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be aware of how social conditioning shapes behavior. The one who is trying hard to live up to an image of independence may really need your help. Your compassion helps you see the truth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won’t have time to be very self-conscious, because you’re so focused on experiencing all you can in one day. You may even dare to sing solo in public or dance for no reason. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re likely to put more emphasis on substance than form, though not immediately. A lovely package will draw you in. But you won’t stay “in” if there’s nothing compelling inside it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may be concerned about being criticized or judged harshly, but it doesn’t keep you from putting your best work out there for all to see. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be inspired by a person who really seems to have it all together. You’re already planning your future involvement with this person. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 7). Though a playfulness dominates your energy this year, make no mistake: You still get plenty of serious business accomplished. You’ll purposefully execute new facets of your will through the next 10 weeks. The cast of characters in your personal life changes a bit in May, and you’ll enjoy fresh influences. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 1, 50 and 19.
