Americans endure long lines wagering $1.5B to win record Mega Millions jackpot in what could be the biggest single lotto payout in the world

INVESTMENT SCANDAL

Betting on a longshot

By MARGERY A. BECK Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — Lottery ticket lines swelled as Americans wagered nearly $1.5 billion on the longest of long shots: a less than 1 percent chance to join the 1 percent Friday night as the winner of a record $640 million Mega Millions jackpot. A café worker in Arizona reported selling $2,600 worth of tickets to one buyer, while a retired soldier in Wisconsin doubled his regular weekly ticket spending to $55. But each would have to put down mil-

Obama’s move clears the way for the U.S. to penalize foreign financial institutions that do oil business with Iran by barring them from having a U.S.-based affiliate or doing business here. Obama’s goal is to tighten the pressure on Iran, not allies, and already the administration exempted 10 European Union countries and Japan from the threat of sanctions because they cut their oil purchases from Iran.

WILKES-BARRE –Tax-free returns from a trust connected to natural gas drilling on land owned by Louis DeNaples was one of the false promises made to investors by attorney Anthony Lupas Jr., according to a court documents filed Friday. There was no drilling under way and the land in Bear Creek Township where it was supposed to occur was owned by Luzerne County, not the Dunmore businessman, as Lupas claimed, the documents said. Attorney Ernest Preate Jr. made the revelations in the pa- Lupas perwork filed on behalf of five people who sued Lupas alleging they were defrauded by him in the investment scheme costing them their life savings. Others have sued the 77-year-old Lupas over similar losses and with the charge of mail fraud filed in federal court, the civil and criminal cases have begun to uncover the scope of the scheme dating back years and involving millions of dollars invested by clients and close friends of the prominent attorney. “Defendant Lupas Jr. was freely using Louis DeNaples’ name to entice people to invest in a secret fund to back DeNaples’ gas drilling operations,” according to the filing by Preate. He said earlier this month he contacted DeNaples, who told him he transferred all his interest in the land in question before 2004 and was unaware Lupas collected money using his name. According to Preate’s filing, Lupas provided a trust agreement to investors stating they would be able to withdraw their $50,000 investment and receive 7 percent interest if gas or oil was discovered on the land by Dec. 10, 2010. Lupas owned hundreds of acres of land next to the property in question. “This was a fraudulent inducement on the part of Defendant See LUPAS, Page 6A

KINGSTON – The streets of Paris came alive on Friday at Wyoming Seminary’s 39th Annual Live Auction to benefit the school’s general fund. The yearly fundraiser auctions off donated gifts and services to raise money to fulfill the “wishlist” of current faculty members at the school’s Upper and Lower school campuses. This year’s Parisian-themed event featured a French-inspired dinner and an open bar provided by the Westmoreland Club and met with the approval of the 200 guests who paid $50 per person for the privilege of bidding on an eclectic array of items, including jewelry, original artwork and prints, gourmet baked goods, autographed sports memorabilia, as well as a creative project from each of the school’s classrooms.

at a downtown Washington, D.C., liquor store Friday. But Horsley, who said she won’t buy a lottery ticket unless the jackpot tops $100 million, remained realistic. “I don’t actually think I’m going to win, and I don’t believe in superstitions or numbers or anything like that,” she said. “I just figured it’s right around the corner. I’d be crazy not at least to give it a shot.” Thousands of players — who converged on convenience stores in 42 states and Washington, D.C., where Mega Millions tickets are sold — agreed. Kelly Cripe, a spokeswoman for the Texas Lottery Commission, said that as of Tuesday, nationwide sales for the Mega Millions drawing totaled more than $839 million. Officials projected an additional $618.5 million in sales ahead of Friday’s drawing, however, for a projected total sales figure of more than $1.46 billion. “This is unprecedented,” Cripe said Friday by e-mail. Some Indiana players managed to get freebies, as Hoosier Lottery officials gave away one free Mega Millions ticket to each of the first 540 players at several outlets around the state Friday — a plan announced before the jackpot grew by $100 million. In Indianapolis, college student Chris Stewart said he showed up at the lottery’s headquarters at 6:30 a.m. to be first in a line. “I’ve never seen a jackpot like this before,” said Stewart, who bought five additional tickets. “If I won — I mean, wow! I just don’t know what I’d do. I’d really have to think what I could do with it.” The lines were out the door at Rosie’s Den cafe in the rural northwestern Arizona community of White Hills, 72 miles southeast of Las Vegas and one of the closest points to Nevada — which doesn’t offer Mega Millions — for buyers to get in the game. Rosie’s worker Christine Millim said it’s been nonstop for four days. “In one step I sold $2,600 worth so, that was one person,” she said.

ome areas of Northeastern PennS sylvania may see 2 to 4 inches of snow by daybreak today.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton, N.Y., said the higher elevations may see accumulating snowfall while the valleys and low lying areas may see none or very little snow. A storm system moving across the region Friday and early this morning will bring rain that may change over to snow across the mountains. Snowfall may seem odd considering there were 21 days in March with high temperatures above 50 degrees. According to weather records, the average high temperature for March is 36.5 degrees. The average high for March 2012 has been 49.3 degrees, 12.8 degrees above normal, making this March the warmest on record.

A lesson in helping AmeriCorps volunteers aid Falls community in Wyoming County with flood aftermath cleanup. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Piles of debris from September’s flood still line the banks of the Susquehanna River near the Falls Bridge, interspersed by scattered remnants of shattered homes, some still hanging from trees. Downed trees and sheds ripped from their foundations sit next to vacant houses gutted to bare walls and floors. It’s a lot for the residents of sparsely populated Exeter Township, Wyoming County, to deal with on their own, so they were happy to get some help this week from a group of workers from the National Civilian Community Corps, a subsidiary of the AmeriCorps program. “I think it’s great that they’re coming to do that,” said resident Heidi Willis, whose home on the river bank was halfswallowed by the flood waters. “… It looks good on their resumes and all, but they wouldn’t do it if they didn’t want to help.”

A group of 10 Corps members has spent the last three weeks organizing flood cleanups in communities along the Susquehanna, including Bloomsburg, Berwick and Shickshinny, and on Friday spent the day cleaning out the recreation park and riverside in the community known as Falls.

Participants in the program work on environmental, urban development and disaster-relief efforts for 10 months in exchange for temporary housing, a small monthly stipend and a $5,000 higher education credit. See FALLS, Page 14A

Hazleton man ruled guilty of 1st-degree murder A jury rejects Rodolfo Perez’s defense that he was drunk and didn’t know what he was doing.

Rodolfo Hiraldo Perez is escorted from the Luzerne County Courthouse after his conviction on a charge of first degree murder Friday in the January 2011 stabbing death of Vladimir Ruiz.

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – It took a jury only about an hour Friday to find a Hazleton man guilty of committing first-degree murder. Rodolfo Hiraldo Perez, 25, was convicted of the charge and criminal conspiracy to commit criminal homicide by a jury of seven men and five women. Prosecutors say Perez and Angel Sanchez, 21, killed Vladimir Ruiz, 21, in a fight outside a Hazleton tavern in January 2011. Perez testified Thursday he was in-

WILKES-BARRE – State officials are expecting a full report from the operator of a natural gas compressor station in Susquehanna County regarding an explosion there on Thursday. “The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection along with Williams Energy has begun an extensive investigation – extensive – into what caused the explosion at … the Lathrop Compressor Station,” Colleen Connolly, regional spokeswoman for DEP said at a press conference at the Northeast regional office on Public Square. Connolly said a preliminary investigation “We want indicates there was a small natural gas leak to know from one of the natural from Wilgas lines inside of the liams what building. “Immediately the happened alarms went off inside in the minthe building and the building itself and the utes and workers went into hours preevacuation mode, meaning they got out ceding this as soon as possible. explosion.” Emergency shut-off Colleen valves … immediately Connolly activated and the gas DEP was stopped, shut off, spokeswoman and everyone got out safely,” Connolly said. Preliminary reports also indicate a spark in the building ignited the explosion and led to the fire. “What caused that spark, we don’t know. We’re looking into that,” Connolly said. It was no more than a few minutes between the time the alarm went off and the explosion occurred, Connolly said. The fire was contained and the building sustained extensive damage. “The compressor station is shut down, meaning no gas is moving through that line and no gas will move through that line until … Williams Energy gives us a report (and) we determine if and when it’s safe to go back online,” Connolly said. DEP has asked Williams to conduct its own investigation and issue a report on what happened before the explosion – what was going on inside the plant, what workers were doing at the time, if the lines were operating properly, how much gas was moving through the lines, if any equipment was malfunctioning and if anything was wrong with the lines, Connolly said. “We want to know from Williams what happened in the minutes and hours preceding this explosion. … That’s the mode we’re in now, investigating how it happened, what Williams was doing … at the time of this explosion. We’ll look into whether or not they were operating under the regulations of their air quality permit from DEP,” she said. The permit, which DEP renewed in February 2011, allows Williams to operate seven compressors at the station, which is near Springville. There were six compressor engines on-line at the time of the explosion, she said. “Williams has at least one permit request for another natural gas compressor station with DEP. We’ll look into how this incident affects future requests by them to operate more compressor stations,” Connolly said.

turns in both directions of travel. Safety modifications were made to a short stretch of the road in Ashley after a May 2009 fatal crash in front of the Bentley’s restaurant and banquet facility. “We have a large volume of our accidents on that stretch of roadway,” Hanover Township Police Chief Al Walker said. “It’s a combination of a couple of things. The grade is very steep and the difficulty of going up and down through the mountain with the twists and turns, weather variations can change the road surface at any time and driverrelated problems with speed and alcohol use.” According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Internet Traffic Monitoring System, an average of 19,400 vehicles and 900 trucks travel daily on Route 309 between Mountain Top and Ashley.

Archives from The Times Leader indicate five people have died in crashes on the same stretch of roadway since May 2009. There have also been many crashes resulting in serious injuries, including a November 2011 seven-car crash that was blamed on a deer running across the road. Walker said his police force has stepped up speed enforcement patrols in recent weeks, issuing dozens of citations on Route 309. “We’re not up there for a lot of service calls due to the low number

of individuals in that area,” Walker said. “It’s not practical for us to be up there all the time when a majority of our calls are in the residential neighborhoods.” The speed limit for that section of Route 309 in both directions is 45 mph. After a man died in a fiery crash in front of Bentley’s in May 2009, PennDOT installed a series of rumble strips across a 500-foot segment of the left-hand, northbound lane, and several new signs advising motorists to watch their speed.

AG lists Penn State perjury statements By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Prosecutors on Friday filed a document listing 33 statements made by two Penn State administrators to support the perjury charges against the men, accused of lying to a grand jury investigating child sex abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach. A second document defended the case and said a judge should not dismiss the charges. The statements laid out by the state Attorney General’s Office are from January 2011, when athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz appeared before a secret grand jury investigating Jerry Sandusky. Their lawyers’ spokeswo-

man, Martine Charles, offered no immediate comment about the filings, which The Associated Press obtained late Friday. Many of the statements downplay the seriousness of a report Curley and Schultz fielded from graduate assistant Mike McQueary, who said he saw Sandusky in the football team shower with a boy a decade ago. Curley, 57, is quoted saying the report by McQueary was not sexual in nature, while Schultz, 62, is quoted saying he was not told anything more serious than perhaps that Sandusky grabbed the boy’s genitals. Prosecutors wrote, in an answer to defense attorneys’ motion for more detail about the allegations, that the state “identifies these statements with the understanding that

any or all of these statements will support the charge of perjury, and that it is not required to prove the falsity of every identified statement.” Curley, now on leave from the university, and Schultz, who has retired, were charged in November with perjury and failure to properly report suspected child abuse. They have denied the allegations and have asked a Dauphin County judge to throw out the charges. Sandusky, 68, awaits trial on dozens of child sexual abuse charges involving 10 boys over a 15-year period. He has denied the allegations and is on house arrest awaiting trial in early June. Prosecutors said Joe Paterno’s testimony was properly allowed as evidence in December.

Out-of-date pictures helped shape initial perceptions of victim and shooter

Old photos now look misleading By MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press

‘Where’s it goin’ now?’

Actor Bill Murray reacts to his putt on the ninth green during the 12th annual Caddyshack Golf Tournament at King and Bear Golf Course, Friday, in The Estates neighborhoods of the World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Fla.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — When he was shot, Trayvon Martin was not the baby-faced boy in the photo that has been on front pages across the country. And George Zimmerman wasn’t the beefy-looking figure in the widely published mugshot. Both photos are a few years old and no longer entirely accurate. Yet they may have helped shape initial public perceptions of the deadly shooting. “When you have such a lopsided visual comparison, it just stands to reason that people would rush to judgment,” said

SEATTLE

Martin

Zimmerman

Kenny Irby, who teaches visual journalism at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in St. Petersburg, Fla. The most widely seen picture of Martin, released by his family, was evidently taken a few years ago and shows a smiling, round-cheeked youngster in a red T-shirt. But at his death, Martin was 17 years old,

around 6 feet tall and, according to his family’s attorney, about 140 pounds. Zimmerman, 28, is best known from a 7-year-old booking photo of an apparently heavyset figure with an imposing stare, pierced ear and facial hair, the orange collar of his jail uniform visible. The picture, released by police following the deadly shooting, was taken after Zimmerman’s 2005 arrest on an assault-on-an-officer charge that was eventually dropped. In a police video made public this week of Zimmerman being brought in for questioning a half-hour after the shooting,

the 5-foot-9 man appears much slimmer. In a case that has caused a nationwide furor over race and the laws of self-defense, Martin was shot to death by Zimmerman in the city of Sanford on Feb. 26 as the unarmed black teenager was walking back from a convenience store. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic, has claimed self-defense, saying he opened fire after Martin punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground and began slamming his head on the sidewalk.

Military to evaluate Bales

T

he attorney for the soldier accused of killing 17 Afghan civilians says the military is planning to conduct a comprehensive mental health evaluation of his client. John Henry Browne said at a Friday news conference that officials would likely travel to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., to conduct the assessment of his client, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. Bales has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. The military says he left his base in southern Afghanistan and went on a shooting rampage through two villages on March 11.

TREXLERTOWN

An act of ‘deep devotion’ A Pennsylvania man who had recently written in The New York Times about his love for his Alzheimer’sstricken wife killed her and himself in what their family called an act of “deep devotion.” The bodies of Charles Snelling and his wife, Adrienne, both 81, were found Thursday in their home in Trexlertown in eastern Pennsylvania. The coroner said Charles Snelling shot himself; autopsy results on his wife were pending. Charles Snelling, prominent in local political circles, responded late last year to a call from Times columnist David Brooks for people older than 70 to evaluate accomplishments and lessons in their lives. In an essay published online in December, Snelling looked back on the turn his prosperous and happy life had taken, mixing memories of the young woman he fell in love with at first sight with the challenge of caring for someone with dementia. VALLEY FORGE, PA.

Newest casino ready to roll Pennsylvania’s 11th casino has received final approval from state gambling regulators. The $150 million Valley Forge Casino Resort was scheduled to open for business early today at a conference center just outside Valley Forge National Historical Park. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board gave the casino the final signoff after two test nights, board spokesman Doug Harbach said Friday. Valley Forge is the first of the smaller “resort” casinos laid out in the 2004 law that legalized gambling in Pennsylvania. It will have 600 slot machines and 50 table games. The casino itself will be more selective, with gambling restricted to people attending a convention, meeting or private function there; people who spend a minimum of $10 in one of the resort’s dining, nightlife or retail outlets; or anyone who purchases a resort membership.

Syrians clash, protest Clashes and protests broke out across many parts of Syria on Friday, further complicating a peace mission by U.N. envoy Kofi Annan, who urged the government to lay down its weapons first to immediately end the country’s yearlong crisis. As angry protesters lamented inaction by Arab countries, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to work out how to help the opposition in talks with Saudi Arabia, the biggest advocate for arming the rebels against President Bashar Assad. Her visit comes ahead of a 60-nation weekend gathering of the so-called “Friends of the Syrian People” in Istanbul.

Black leaders and others are demanding Zimmerman’s arrest on murder or manslaughter charges, but state and federal authorities are still investigating. A more complex portrait of the two figures has emerged since then. A photo of a beaming Zimmerman looking sharp in a jacket and tie has come out, along with a more recent picture of Martin, with gold teeth and a white sleeveless undershirt. At the same time, it was learned that Martin had been suspended from school for marijuana residue in his backpack.

GOP’s Paul Ryan backs Romney Chairman of House Budget Committee says Romney is best suited to beat President Obama. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan, the powerful chairman of the House Budget Committee, is endorsing Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination. There had been speculation the Wisconsin Republican would fall into the Romney column, and Ryan did so Friday morning in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends.” Ryan says Romney is best suited to beat President Barack Obama. He also says that Romney has emerged

as the candidate most deserving of the GOP rank and file’s backing. Ryan tells Fox he’s convinced that Romney “has the skills, the tenacity and the courage” to lead the party in the race against Obama

this fall. He also says he’s convinced that “if we drag this thing on through summer, it’s going to be harder” to turn Obama out of office. • Rick Santorum says Republicans won’t win the presidency by picking a candidate who jokes about firing people. Santorum was talking about rival Mitt Romney, who joked earlier this week about his father, the former chairman of

American Motors, closing a factory in Michigan and moving production to Wisconsin. Santorum suggested Friday that the quip is more evidence that Romney doesn’t understand the struggles of working people. The former Pennsylvania senator was campaigning in Wisconsin for the state’s primary next week. • Newt Gingrich is acknowledging what has become increasingly clear: Mitt Romney is the likely nominee. The former House speaker told Milwaukee radio station WTMJ Friday he thinks Romney “is clearly the front-runner.” Gingrich said Romney “will probably” get the 1,144 convention delegates he needs, but added that Romney still has to earn it.

ISLAMABAD — Osama bin Laden lived in five safe houses while on the run in Pakistan and fathered four children — two of them born in government hospitals, his youngest widow has told investigators. The details of bin Laden’s life as a fugitive in Pakistan are contained in the interrogation report of Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah alSada, bin Laden’s 30-year-old Yemeni widow. They appear to raise fresh questions over how bin Laden was able to remain undetected for so long in Pakistan after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, despite being Since the raid the subject of a that killed bin massive inter- Laden, it has national manbeen known hunt.

They were arrested after the U.S raid that killed bin Laden in May in his final hideout in the Pakistani army town of Abbottabad. The U.S. Navy SEALs shot her in the leg during the operation. Mohammed Amir Khalil, a lawyer for the three widows, said the women would be formally charged for illegally staying in Pakistan on April 2. Since the raid that killed bin Laden, it has been known that he lived mostly in Pakistan since 2002.

Titanic exhibit opening where liner was built By JANET STOBART Los Angeles Times

LONDON — One hundred years after her doomed maiden voyage, RMS Titanic lives on in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the cruise ship was built and launched in 1912 and where a new building of exhibition galleries opens on Saturday. The massive Titanic Belfast complex, owned and managed by the charitable trust Titanic Foundation in partnership with

Belfast City Council, is designed to commemorate and celebrate Belfast’s life as a shipbuilding center as well as the ship that sank after being hailed as “practically unsinkable” by her builders Harland and Wolff. The Titanic went down on its first voyage, which began April 10, 1912, with more than 2,000 passengers and crew from the southern English port of Southampton, bound for New York. Five days later, she lay at the

bottom of the North Atlantic with her hull ripped open by an iceberg. More than 1,500 people drowned, leaving little more than 700 survivors. The new six-story building designed by Eric Kuhne is a shimmering complex of aluminum shards as high as the original Titanic hull, occupying the original shipbuilding dockside and slipway where hundreds of AP PHOTO vessels were built in the early 20th century.

Lupas Jr. since Louis DeNaples did not personally own the property,” the filing said. Theta Land Corp., one of the DeNaples’ companies, owned the property on Penobscot Mountain. The land was transferred The Conservation Fund, a nonprofit corporation, and again transferred to Luzerne County in June 2004, the filing said. Preate asked for a special order from the court to publish the lawsuits filed by Frank and Mary Lou Pisano, John F. Pisano and Joseph and Barbara De Santo in newspapers because Lupas has been avoiding attempts to accept notice of the suits. Without the service Preate said he is unable to begin the discovery process and gather information from Lupas and his family, his son David, who is a Luzerne County judge, and Gino Bartoli, an alleged partner in a Bear Creek Township property where wind turbines, owned and operated by Florida Power and Light Co., are located. Preate and Lupas met briefly Thursday after Lupas was charged in U.S. District Court, Scranton, and placed on house arrest, but Preate could not serve papers on Lupas in the federal courthouse. A hearing on Preate’s request has been scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday in Luzerne County Court and an out-of-town judge will hear the matter. The entire 10-member county bench recused itself from “all matters that would involve Mr. Lupas as a party,” said county President Judge Thomas Burke. “The court took the initiative on its own part to notify the (Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts) of a bench recusal,” said Burke. Based on the court’s request, Senior Judge Charles Brown of Centre County was assigned to handle Preate’s filing, Burke added. Late Friday afternoon Preate said the hearing might not be necessary because the county Sheriff’s Department will try again Monday to serve Lupas with the papers at the apartment in Plains Township, where he is confined under the terms of his release for the criminal charge.

WILKES-BARRE -- At least four people were left homeless after a fire broke out in their New Alexander Street home Friday afternoon. Wilkes-Barre Assistant Fire Chief Thomas Makar said flames were shooting out the windows of the second floor of 184 New Alexander St. when fire crews arrived on the scene. It took firefighters about 40 minutes to get control of the blaze, which was called in at 4:36 p.m. The rear of the second floor of 184 New Alexander St. sustained heavy fire and smoke damage; the other side of the two-story duplex -- 186 New Alexander St. -- sustained smoke damage, Makar said. Makar said all on-duty firefighters responded and he called in an additional eight to 10 as a Rapid Intervention Team and for additional manpower. A woman who said she lives at 184

WILKES-BARRE – A Harrisburg man who pleaded guilty to a robbery charge stemming from a December 2010 deadly shooting was sentenced Friday to four to eight years in state prison. County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley sentenced Tyrek Smith, 25. He pleaded guilty to the charge in December. Smith was charged along with his cousins Isiah and Izel Garrett in a case in which prosecutors say Abdul Shabazz, 30, of Hazleton, was shot and killed in a drug deal gone bad. The Garretts handed over counterfeit money, prosecutors say, in exchange for marijuana inside their father’s West Hazleton apartment. When Shabazz realized the

if they were unable to stay with friends or relatives. Makar said the cause of the fire is under investigation. He said it was yet to be determined if the residents of 186 Alexander St., which sustained smoke damage, would be allowed to return to their home on Friday.

New Alexander St. was at work when the fire broke out, but others who were home made it out safely. She was too distraught to provide additional information. Edna Vivian, an emergency responder for the American Red Cross who was on-scene, said the agency would provide shelter for the family

appealing two consecutive life sentences each in Shabazz’s death. They were convicted of second-degree murder and other charges in December after a jury trial. Smith’s attorney, Royce Morris, said Friday his client’s remorse shows through the cooperation he has offered investigators and that his client made a poor choice in deciding to hang out with his cousins. “Two very dangerous individuals are off the streets because of (Smith’s) cooperation,” Morris said. Prosecutors say Isiah Garrett had been charged with homicide in a November 2010 incident in which police say he and two other men shot and killed a Harrisburg Area Community College student during a robbery. He was arrested for the Harrisburg area shooting while in custody for the West Hazle-

fendant as well as he has come to know Smith, and even more rare that he decided to speak on Smith’s behalf. Surmick asked Polachek Gartley to consider leniency, telling the judge Smith is well-spoken, intelligent and that they share many interests. The longtime trooper said Smith is not the street thug his two cousins are and that he believes Smith learned his lesson. “This incident saved (Smith’s) life,” Surmick said. “Otherwise, he would have ended up dead.” Assistant District Attorney Frank McCabe said the Garretts lead Smith into a situation he otherwise would not have been in and he believes that Smith never imagined Shabazz would end up dead. “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family,” McCabe said.

Hearing continued for man accused in alleged gang shooting outside Plains Township nightclub By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

PLAINS TWP. – A preliminary hearing was continued Friday for Jerayme Johnson, who is accused of shooting another man in an act of retaliation involving rival gang members. Thomas Tonic, 19, who was shot in the face outside a nightclub at the Woodlands Inn & Resort in June 2010, did not appear for the proceeding before District Judge Diana Malast. Malast continued the hearing until May 7, giving police five weeks to find Tonic.

Prosecutors may ask a Luzerne County judge to classify Tonic, if he is found, as a material witness that would include bail and possible incarceration. Johnson remains at the county prison for lack of $500,000 bail. An arrest warrant was issued for Johnson in September 2010, charging him with criminal attempt to commit homicide, persons not to possess a firearm, firearm not to be carried without a license and two counts of aggravated assault. He was arrested in New Jersey in January. Johnson is a member of the

The area Salvation Army food assistance program gets a big boost as crates of Shurfine canned food are unloaded. Wilkes University students spearheaded the drive, helped by Schiel’s Market.

When caring’s on the menu Wilkes students and area business help the Salvation Army feed the needy.

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – About two dozen Wilkes University students spent hours throughout February collecting canned goods and selling paper hearts to raise money to help the hungry. The result of their hard work -- a shipment of more than 2 tons of food -- was delivered to the Salvation Army on Friday. Case after case of Shurfine canned vegetables were unloaded from a Schiel’s delivery truck as smiling Salvation Army employees looked on. Cecilia Golightly, an administrative assistant at the facility, said the need is certainly there for the food. “In today’s economy, people need the help. This is going to be a fantastic help,” she said. Though the shelves in the storage garage weren’t empty, they were pretty bare. That’s been a trend in recent years as more people need help and more organizations are inundated with requests and struggle to keep up with the need. “There’s been many times when the shelves have been bare,” Golightly said. “It’s been rough.” But the 5,000 pounds of food received Friday, coupled with the 1,500 pounds delivered previously by students on the Wilkes Students in Free Enterprise team, will ensure those shelves stay stocked at least through Easter. Students who participated, many of them who hail from outside the Wyoming Valley, said they felt it was the communityminded thing to do to help those less fortunate. Tory Price, a Wilkes student from Berwick, said students understand “there are people out there in much greater need than us” and integrating Wilkes into the greater Wilkes-Barre community seemed like a worthy endeavor. “We let the students and the

community know we can all make a difference,” said Dominick Manzioni of Honesdale. He said the support was so inspiring that the team decided it would likely continue the project next year. Golightly said the students’ efforts show that “there are people that still care in the world.” The fund and food raisers were done as part of the nationwide “Let’s Can Hunger Campaign” involving Students in Free Enterprise teams at colleges and universities across the country. Each team was charged with raising a minimum of $5,000 or

5,000 pounds of food to donate to a local shelter under the goal of providing urgent hunger relief. The Wilkes students exceeded this goal by collecting canned goods and raising money through their own initiative, the “Hearts for Hunger” campaign. They sold “Hearts for Hunger” cardsa for $1 on the Wilkes campus and partnered with Schiel’s to sell them in the Hanover Street food store. The team raised more than $1,000, which was used to purchase additional food. Schiel’s also donated 20 cases of canned goods to the project.

Feds back PPL power line The line running from Luzerne County has incurred criticism from environmentalists. By SPENCER SOPER The Morning Call

In a big win for PPL Electric Utilities, the National Park Service has given support to the company’s proposal for a highvoltage power line cutting through Delaware Water Gap, a project opposed by some environmentalists. The park service on Thursday identified the route proposed by PPL and its New Jersey partner as a “preferred alternative” in its environmental review of the project. The distinction does not represent final approval -- a decision is expected this fall -- but it shows the agency siding with PPL over objections of environmentalists. The park service has jurisdiction over part of the project that would pass through Delaware Water Gap, a national recreation area. At issue is a proposed 145-mile

transmission line from PPL’s Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township, Luzerne County, to the Roseland substation near Newark, N.J. The $1.2 billion project is a partnership between PPL and New Jersey utility PSE&G. The utilities maintain the line is needed to prevent power outages during peak demand periods and that the proposed route is preferable since most of it is along existing power line routes. Denying its passage through Delaware Water Gap would force them to cut through other communities and habitats, they said. “We commend the National Park Service for its very thorough review, and for concluding that our proposed route provides the most appropriate balance of meeting society’s energy needs while minimizing impacts to federal lands,” Gregory Dudkin, president of PPL Electric Utilities, and Ralph LaRossa, president and chief operating officer of PSE&G, said in a joint statement. Environmental groups have

maintained conservation and alternative power sources such as wind and solar energy should be used to meet New Jersey’s power needs, rather than a new power line that they say will destroy scenic views and natural areas. “This is a shameful day in the long history of our parks and may set precedent for more gas and power lines through our parks,” said Jeff Tittel, director of the New Jersey Sierra Club. “This decision is an insult to the more than 5 million people that visit the Water Gap every year.” Utility regulators in both states favor the project. And the proposed line got a blessing from the federal government last year when the Obama administration added the project to a list of power-grid upgrades that will get more rapid reviews because of their job creation potential. The line is expected to create 2,000 jobs during construction. The park service expects to make a final decision on the project by Oct. 1. PPL and PSE&G hope to have the project completed by the summer of 2015.

Hearing put off for Dallas man detained in Philly The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — A bail hearing was postponed Friday for a Luzerne County man accused of trying to board a cross-country flight with explosives in his bag. Joseph Picklo, 29, made a brief appearance in federal court Friday but his detention hearing was rescheduled for next Tuesday. He will remain in custody in the meantime, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia said. Picklo, of Dallas, faces a federal charge of attempting to carry an explosive device onto an aircraft, which prosecutors said carries a penalty of up to 10 years in pris-

on. A criminal complaint states he was in possession of “two homemade M-80s, a Picklo plastic bottle wrapped in electrical tape and partially filled with a powdery mixture, and a test tube filled with another powdery substance which also included a wick” when passing through security around 5:30 a.m. Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport as he was about to board a flight to San Francisco. U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobac-

co, Firearms and Explosives spokesman Steven Bartholomew said the materials are being sent to its lab for analysis. He was stopped when TSA screeners noticed something unusual in the backpack, investigators said. Picklo never made it through security and no one was ever in danger, police said. According to investigators, Picklo indicated he forgot that the items were in his bag. A phone listing for Picklo could not immediately be located. No flights were delayed and the security checkpoint was reopened an hour later, officials said.

MALLARD FILLMORE

Candidate contends legislators enjoy too many perks THE RECENT scandal involving former Sen. Bob Mellow has Pennsylvania citizens outraged, and rightfully so. Too often we see elected officials abuse their power for personal gain, to the point where it is no longer a surprise, it is an expectation. These recent charges only highlight this issue. While Sen. Mellow was charged with conspiracy and improper use of taxpayerpaid staffers, he is not the only politician using our tax money for personal gain. People are outraged about his $140,000 per year pension, but all of our so-called public servants are receiving these absurd pensions and massive perk packages. It’s time for this to end. It’s a matter of principle and poor representation. This culture in Harrisburg must change, and it starts by addressing three specific areas. Per Diems. Our lawmakers receive a $163 bonus every day just for showing up to work. This can total up to $20,000 per year for each legislator. The money is supposed to be used to pay for food and lodging, but it’s often misused. Many public officials simply accepted full per diems regardless of their expenditures, giving self-serving legislators part of their “Walking Around Money” and leaving taxpayers to foot the bill. Our politicians eat lunch whether they’re at home or in Harrisburg. We shouldn’t be

Health Care. Our lawmakers receive “Cadillac Health Care” benefits on taxpayer money. Although they used to get it free, legislators allege that they reformed the system. The truth is they now pay only 1 percent. I don’t consider that reform. It’s an appeasement, nothing more than politics being played with our money and our time. Increasing your premiums from zero to 1 percent isn’t a reform, it’s an insult. We expect real reform, not the perception of it. Automatic pay raises. Lawmakers receive automatic cost of living adjustments, which have been used to increase their salaries 75 percent over the last 17 years. With a single vote in 1995, our public servants ensured they would never have to hold an open vote to increase their salary ever again. No vote means no accountability, and no accountability means it’s easier to exploit the public. Now lawmakers kick back and relax as they watch their salaries increase while

Adult Literacy program yields great benefits

P

COMMENTARY

seniors see their Social Security rates stay the same for years. This is another example of self-service, not public service. Legislators are voted into office to carry out the will of the voters. Now I ask: Are you being properly represented when public servants pad their pockets with expansive political perks paid for by you? Sen. Mellow may have gotten caught for using legislative staff for personal gain, but our legislators have been using these perks for their own benefit for decades. It may not be illegal, but it certainly is immoral. It is an issue of principle, and we must stop these practices. We must hold our public officials accountable. This is why I am running for office. Our district needs a leader who will fight these outrageous and wasteful legislative perks. They are an insult to the citizens of our area and our first goal should be to stand up and say, “We are fed up. Enough is enough.” If elected, I will refuse the per diem, I will demand our legislators pay more for their health care plans, and I will fight to repeal the automatic COLAs. Right now, these practices show that our politicians do not answer to the voters the way they should. The connection between citizen and politician has gone from clear, to hazy, to nonexistent. This must change and I am here to tell you that if I am elected, it will.

ennsylvania’s Adult and Family Literacy program proves its value every day, transforming the work lives of our citizens who have not been successful in the education system, or who have emigrated from another country. It is not just an education program; it is also an economic development program for the state. Soon the Legislature will determine how much to fund it. Here’s an example about a man named Mike, whose story demonstrates the critical need to continue the funding of Adult and Family Literacy: Like a lot of Pennsylvanians, Mike had a life that wasn’t easy for him educationally. He never liked reading and, of course, getting through school without mastering the basics of reading put him behind the eight ball. Mike dropped out of high school after his junior year because he found a summer job loading trucks that gave him a lot of satisfaction. His employer liked him so much he offered Mike a permanent job at minimum wage and benefits. Getting that

paycheck meant more to him than finishing school. Mike was valued in his job, and it gave him a sense of worth in the community. He also became one of the millions of Pennsylvanians older than 25 with no high school diploma or GED. A few years later Mike got married and he and his wife had their first child soon after. He was advancing in responsibility at work, but when it came to becoming a supervisor, he knew he would have to show he had a high school diploma to get the promotion. Now what? His boss, who had learned to respect Mike’s positive attitude and hard work, told him about the GED, the high school equivalency test. The boss also had the human resources manager make calls to

DOONESBURY: FLASHBACK

find out how Mike could get in the program. You can guess the rest: Mike was highly motivated, joined a literacy program in which he was tutored by a trained volunteer, took and passed the GED and now was qualified to advance. In addition, he overcame his reluctance to face written material and his embarrassment at not having finished high school. Not only his work life but his role in his family and as a member of the community was enhanced. How did all this happen? Because Pennsylvania’s program in Adult and Family Literacy is there to help provide the skills needed by so many. Adult and Family Literacy funding should be kept at least at the level it was a year ago in the commonwealth budget. Let’s make sure our legislators realize that in addition to all the important education programs such as universities, community colleges and K-12, Adult and Family Literacy is an absolutely effective program that gives adults the opportunity to realize their full potential as workers, family members and assets to their communities.

A spokeswoman for Metz Culinary Management, of Dallas, which supplies food service to school districts, universities and hospitals, said the company would discontinue the use of pink slime in all future menu items but stressed that local school districts that had purchased beef products containing the additive through federal government programs have to make individual decisions about continued use of the product in their federally subsidized programs. The federal government recently purchased 7 million pounds of the product for inclusion in reduced-price and free lunches but will allow individual school districts to choose between the lower-cost product or

brewing equipment and the brewing process. Schonfeld’s father, Jim, who owns the property and Marty’s Blue Room, also is requesting approval to build a 455square-foot addition to the restaurant itself.

“Now that I’ve gone from seeing the disaster when it was occurring to now, the aftermath, it’s unbelievable to see how much damage a flood can do,” Skovira said. “Just how the landscape can change and the communities can change. It’s a big shock to see what Mother Nature can do, but also to see communities coming together.” Residents of the surrounding community said the town has needed to come together because they have largely been left to clean up the mess themselves.

equipment or hired a contractor because he first needs approval from the Luzerne County Zoning Hearing Board. His request for variances is before that body Tuesday night. “Everything’s been on hold until this hearing,” Schonfeld said. The Schonfelds purchased an adjoining property and home a decade ago with the idea the lot could one day be used for expansion or overflow parking. The house was razed but the property hasn’t been used … until now. The new building will be dedicated to

homicide, and he went to the fight between Sanchez, also an alleged Trinitarios member, and Ruiz where he was asked to watch Sanchez’s back. Perez, a native of the Dominican Republic, said gunshots scared him, he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol and he didn’t know what to do. “Then, I stabbed him once ... but I didn’t know where,” Perez said of the assault on Ruiz. He said he was too intoxicated to remember where he got the knife or to know where he stabbed Ruiz. “I didn’t know it was that bad. I didn’t know what I had

ground beef with a higher fat content. “We are holding all beef product suspected of containing the finely textured beef until we hear something from these schools,” said Metz Vice President of Marketing Maureen Gallagher. “It’s all up to them now.” Neighborhood meat markets have benefited from concern over the additive, which has been associated with larger stores. “Since all this happened, everyone’s been coming in asking if I’ll grind their beef while they watch,” said Russell Solovey, owner of Plains Meat Market. “I don’t mind. It’s what we’ve been doing for years, anyway. We’ve never used any kind of filler.”

That will result in his beer being sold in a 10-county radius as far away as the Lehigh Valley, Bloomsburg and the Northern Tier. While half-kegs and sixtels – a canister that holds about two and a quarter cases - will still be sold, 12-ounce bottles will replace the 22 ounce size sold now. If business continues to boom, Schonfeld said expansion on the property is not likely.

can’t. It doesn’t make sense,” Lampman said of Ruiz’s death. “(We) don’t live by the street code.” Lampman and Pike had argued Perez didn’t intend to kill Ruiz, and therefore, wasn’t guilty of first-degree murder. Perez acknowledged he stabbed Ruiz and only later learned he had died from his injuries, showing there was no intent, Lampman said. He told jurors the fight was gang related but that Perez never took part in any plan to kill Ruiz – prosecutors didn’t prove that, he said.

They were fortunate, they said, to have taken on only 6 inches of water on their home’s first floor in the flood, but their neighbors were not so lucky. A home just across the street exploded when it was struck by a large propane tank floating down the river, and another man’s house was torn from its foundation and came to a rest in the middle of a street. “He chopped the house apart piece by piece, dragged it down to the river and set it on fire,” Jerilyn Shirley said. “There’s just nobody to help.” Willis lives near the creek the group and community volunteers will clean

if it’s obvious. In subtle ways, it’s cool.” “Some people that we have met, it took their entire home and flooded their entire basement,” said Emily Goblirsch, a 24-year-old volunteer from Rochester, Minn. “But it sounds like they’re pretty positive. It’s taken them a while to get to this point but they’re happy to have the help and to have made it to this point.” “I’m glad they’re helping,” Jerilyn Shirley said. “You can look at the devastation down there and you can see they could use hundreds of people.” “If there’s going to be a cleanup tomorrow, we’ll be there,” added her husband, Bob.

Gonzalez, charged in the shooting death of Juda Hope in the same fight, has yet not been located to face charges in Hope’s death. Investigators say they know Gonzalez boarded a plane to the Dominican Republic sometime after the homicide. Sanchez pleaded guilty earlier this week to a third-degree murder charge relating to Ruiz’s death and will be sentenced in May. “They wanted to finish the job,” Zola said. “(Ruiz) was going to die that night at the hands of Perez and his co-conspirator Angel Sanchez.”

“If I decided to go larger, I’d probably move,” he said. Kristen Kochanski, a bartender at JJ Bankos, said the Benny Brew Amber Lager has been selling well since it entered the draft offerings at the West Nanticoke establishment. She said customers seem to be ordering it again and again. Once they learn it’s from a local brewer, she said, they’re impressed. In the past week, the Oatmeal Stout has been added to the draft lineup at JJ Bankos, but it hasn’t been as popular as the original lager.

“It was a terrible and awful drunk decision,” Lampman said of Perez’s actions. “But there was no specific intent to kill. We’re telling you (Perez) is guilty – but of third-degree murder.” Assistant District Attorney Daniel Zola, who prosecuted the case with fellow ADA Shannon Crake, dismissed Perez’s claim that he was too drunk to understand what he was doing. “We have the whole thing on video,” Zola said. “The evidence shows they had one thing in mind … Vladimir Ruiz was not going to leave that corner alive. That is clear. Period.”

nations have about three months to significantly reduce such imports before sanctions would kick in. Still, administration officials said that Obama is ready to slap sanctions on U.S. partners and that his action on Friday was another signal. At issue for Obama was ruling, by Friday, whether oil supplies were sufficient to keep demanding that nations cut off Iran — not an insignificant matter in a time of high election-year gas prices at home. Obama gave his OK after considering available reserves, increased oil production by some countries and global economic conditions. The White House emphasized that he would continue to keep an eye on the oil market to make sure that it — and its consumers — could withstand shrinking purchases out of Iran. It is not year clear, at this stage of the process, how the sanctions could affect gas prices. The U.S. sanctions are set to take effect on June 28. A European oil embargo, approved in January, starts in July. Put together, Obama administration officials contend Iran is about to face its most severe economic pressure ever. The United States imports no oil from Iran. The main importers of Iranian oil that have not received exemptions from the U.S. are China, India, Turkey, South Africa and South Korea. The administration would be loath to hit a close friend like South Korea or India, or a NATO ally like Turkey, with sanctions, and is working with those countries to reduce their imports.

Swisher, Garcia and Cervelli get time in with Triple-A Yankees against Pirates.

By NATE OWEN For The Times Leader

HARTFORD, Conn. – Goals haven’t been easy to come by of late for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. They’ve been even harder to get for Cody Wild. But both parties broke through Friday night, as the Penguins scored three times in a span of 2:12 in the first period, including Wild’s first AHL goal since 200809 in a 3-0 win over Connecticut at the XL Center. “I think I blacked out; I hadn’t scored in so long,” the Penguins defender said. “I jumped in the play and (Brian Gibbons) made PENGUINS a great drop pass. I just put it on net to see what would hapWHALE pen.” With Carl Sneep injured and Brian Strait and Simon Despres still in Pittsburgh, that gave Wild, who last scored for Reading in the ECHL last season, a chance to step in the lineup along with Philip Samuelsson. “Every time we’ve had guys that have had to step in the lineup they’ve played well,” Penguins head coach John Hynes said. “Those guys are ready; they work hard.” With the win, Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton (40-22-2-5) jumped ahead of idle Hershey and into fourth place in the Eastern Conference with seven games remaining. The Penguins controlled the tempo in the opening period, outskating and outhustling the listless Whale. “When we work as a five-man unit all over the ice…it makes our job that much easier,” said Penguins forward Jason Williams. “Everybody can read off each other and in the first period we definitely did that.” A hooking call against Andre Deveaux sent the Penguins on the power play at 5:32. They patiently cycled the puck in the

NEW ORLEANS — Kentucky coach John Calipari likes to say there are no rivalry games at this point in the season. Try telling that to the Bluegrass State, where basketball’s version of the civil war — Kentucky vs. Louisville, winner plays for the NCAA title — has so divided the small state that senior citizens have actually come to fisticuffs. “The fans take it as, whoever loses, it’s their funeral, really,” Louisville senior guard Chris Smith said. “It’s really cut-throat, I would say.” The game today is the fifth time topseeded Kentucky (36-2) and fourthseeded Louisville (30-9) have met in the NCAA tournament.

WILKES-BARRE – One era ended for Eugene Lewis on Friday night, but at least he went out on top. Lewis scored 20 points to garner MVP honors as he helped the East defeat the West 87-75 in the 43rd Dr. George Moses WVC Senior All-Star Classic at Holy Redeemer High School. Lewis scored a game-high 20 points. Two came on dunks, a trademark of the Meyers senior’s high school career that included three years at Wyoming Valley West. It was at Valley West where Lewis made his biggest impact in another sport – football. He’ll be heading to See ENDING, Page 5B

WVW trio earns All-American honors

Negotiations being held on hourly basis

More than two dozen WVC athletes at the high school nationals in Virginia Beach. By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

For just the second time in Steve Barber’s six years as head coach, Wyoming Valley West didn’t qualify any wrestlers for the PIAA Championships earlier this month. The Spartans made up for that the past few days. A trio from Wyoming Valley West – Cody Cordes, Travis Roper and Kyle Krasavage – earned All-American status at

the National High School Wrestling Championships at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach. Hanover Area’s Dominic Vitale also earned a medal on Friday. Cordes, a 145-pounder, took fourth during the freshman tournament, picking up four wins over the three-day event. Vitale, also participating in the freshman event, took sixth at 138 and also won four matches. Cordes didn’t make it past the Northeast Regional Tournament during the regular season, while Vitale didn’t qualify for regionals, placing fourth at the District 2 Class 2A Championships.

Roper won four bouts in the sophomore event and placed eighth on Friday in the 126pound class. Earlier in the week, Roper knocked out Pittston Area’s Tyler Lutecki from competition for one of his wins. Krasavage, who was a state qualifier for the Spartans in 2010 as a freshman but missed the event this season because of a stacked weight class at regionals, took fifth at the junior national event. Along the way, Krasavage picked up five wins, including a defeat of a twotime state champion from South Dakota. A total of 28 Wyoming Val-

ley Conference wrestlers made the nearly seven-hour trip to Virginia Beach for the tournament. The freshman, sophomore and junior events ended Friday, while the senior tourney was just beginning. Three wrestlers from Meyers -- Vito Pasone (113 pounds), Jeff Nealon (132) and Darren Stucker (145) -- are participating in the senior competition. Stucker, who was a state qualifier for the Mohawks, won his first two bouts Friday, then lost his third to drop into the consolations. Pasone, a state runner-up, won his first match, while Nealon lost his.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Player, coach hardware distributed Kentucky’s Davis is Player of the Year, while Missouri coach Haith is top mentor.

the Southeastern Conference’s Player, Freshman and Defensive Player of the Year. “My expectations were nothing like this; I wasn’t planning on any awards,” he said of how he approached his first — and what many project will be his only — season in college basketball. “I have to thank my teammates for

those lob passes for easy baskets and for them getting beat off the dribble for all those blocked shots. Without them there are no awards.” No Kentucky player had won the award which started in 1961, and the only other freshman to win it was Kevin Durant of Texas in 2007.

“I’m surprised because you’ve had a lot of great players from Kentucky,” Davis said. “Hopefully I’m starting something, and a lot of Kentucky players will win this award.” Davis received 43 votes from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Balloting was done before the NCAA tournament. Thomas Robinson of Kansas was second with 20 votes, and Draymond Green of Michigan State received the other two votes. Jimmer Fredette of BYU won the award last season. Haith’s first season at Missouri got off to a rough start and ended with a second-round thud in the NCAA tournament. In between his unpopular selection to replace Mike Anderson at Missouri and the Tigers’ stunning loss to 15th-seeded Norfolk State, things went very well. Missouri won 30 games and the Big 12 tournament and was ranked in the AP poll the entire season, reaching second for one week and was third in the final poll. Haith received 21 votes from the media panel, while John Calipari of Kentucky and Tom Izzo of Michigan State tied for second with 10 votes each. The voting was done before the NCAA tournament. Unlike Davis, Haith didn’t have a practice to rush to Friday. “It’s good to see your peers at something like the Final Four, but the disappointment of your season being over is still there,” Haith said. “Still, I can’t tell you how honored and humbled I am with all the recognition.”

Or, heaven forbid, say something at a dialysis appointment. A 71-year-old Louisville fan punched a 68-year-old Kentucky fan earlier this week after their discussion over tonight’s game got out of hand. To be fair, police say the Kentucky fan did flip off the Louisville fan. “It all started with the racial lines in Kentucky,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said of the rivalry. “Now (it’s) no longer racially motivated. It’s just pure hatred.” It’s a given that Louisville and Kentucky would be rivals, their campuses a mere 70 miles apart in a state where basketball is king. To hear fans of both schools tell it, however, the programs might as well be on different planets.

Kentucky is a college basketball blue blood, its seven national titles second only to UCLA, while Louisville has a nice little tradition going with two national titles. Kentucky is the bigger school, and its campus is set in bucolic hill country. Louisville sprawls over several city blocks, smoke from a soy processing plant billowing overhead and railroad tracks cutting through the center of campus. (If the Louisville lacrosse coach never sees a train again after she retires, it’ll be too soon.) Big Blue counts most of the state among its fan base, too, while Louisville isn’t necessarily even No. 1 in its own city. In fact, about the only thing the two schools have in common is

Pitino, who led the Wildcats to one national title and two other Final Four appearances in eight years at Kentucky. Forget that engendering any warm-and-fuzzy goodwill with the Kentucky folks, however. Now that Pitino isn’t theirs, Kentucky fans hate him, too. But the bad blood has been simmering for generations. Kentucky never scheduled instate schools under coach Adolph Rupp, and former assistant Joe B. Hall dutifully followed suit when he took over as coach. Gov. John Y. Brown stepped in following their matchup in the 1983 NCAA Mideast Regional finals, now known around the state as The Dream Game, and told the schools to start playing each other.

a story of an ultra-talented freshman trying to lead his team to a championship in what likely will be his only year with the Wildcats, Sullinger and Robinson approach college in a different way. At one point last season, Sullinger was viewed as a surefire lottery pick, a one-and-done prospect with nothing much left to prove in college. He never saw it that way, however, and when Ohio State was eliminated from last year’s tournament as a No. 1 seed, the 6-foot-9 forward committed to staying in college. “I wanted to make a statement, that not everybody is using college basketball as a pit stop to go the next level,” he said. “That there’s more than money and endorsements. There’s championships that you’ve got to

win at every level. That’s what I pride myself on. I’ve won a championship all the way from elementary to now. I pride myself on winning. That’s the biggest thing. That’s why I came back.” “Pride,” was also one of the first words Robinson used when asked about his decision to return for his junior year. He spent most of his first two seasons playing limited minutes behind the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus. NBA scouts were telling Robinson he could be a first-round draft pick if he left. “It was a pride issue,” Robinson said. “I didn’t want people to guess and be like, ‘I think he can play. We’ve seen glimpses.’ I wanted to come back and prove to everybody that I’m a good

player.” He did. Widely viewed in the preseason as a player who might nudge his way onto some AllAmerica lists, Robinson outperformed the predictions. He averages 17.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game and is learning the difference between coming off the bench as a role player and leading a team. “Guys can be prepared to get a check, but I’m not sure they’re all prepared to make a living,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “Thomas wasn’t prepared to make a living. I mean, let’s call it like it is. He never had to carry the water. To me, it wasn’t a hard decision. He needed to show everybody and himself that he was a guy who could make plays to impact a game.”

By JIM O’CONNELL AP Basketball Writer

NEW ORLEANS — Anthony Davis was busier than any of the other players in the Final Four. The Kentucky freshman had to make the circuit of Player of the Year presentations Friday, not that he was complaining. “There were a lot of awards yesterday and today,” Davis said with a big smile. “It’s a great feeling, especially as a freshman. I’ve been working hard and now it’s rewarding.” Davis became the first Kentucky player and second freshman to be selected The Associated Press’ Player of the Year. He picked up his latest trophy, along with Coach of the Year Frank Haith of Missouri. It was Davis’ second ceremony of the day, and he had to make a quick exit to get to practice, part of the preparations for the national semifinal matchup against Louisville on Saturday. “This is great to be here and hopefully we can win the national championship and accomplish our goal,” he said. “Even if we come up short we still had a great season.” The 6-foot-10 Davis sure did. He averaged 14.3 points — on a team with six double-figure scorers — 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks while shooting 64.2 percent from the field. His block total is a school record and thirdbest ever for a freshman. He was

ous four meetings. Basketball purists may argue Duke-North Carolina or KansasMissouri are the game’s biggest, most intense rivalries. But those are like quaint tea parties compared with the animosity between Kentucky and Louisville, which required government intervention to get them to schedule each other. No, think Auburn-Alabama on the hardcourt, and you get the idea. “We get along with most of them,” Kentucky fan Pat Stahl said of Louisville fans, “as long as they don’t talk to you.”

matchup between these teams with a bad back. Kansas’ best player is Thomas Robinson, who had 21 points and seven rebounds in the Jayhawks’ 78-67 win on Dec. 10. “In my eyes, he’s the college player of the year,” Sullinger said of Robinson. “I know some think different. But with his season, the way he took his team to the top, you’ve just got to give it to him.” In fact, it’s Kentucky’s Anthony Davis who took player of the year awards from The Associated Press and college basketball writers Friday. But while Davis is

Lackawanna County needs to complete the sale of the International League baseball franchise to a joint venture between the parent New York Yankees and Mandalay Baseball Properties LLC to raise the funds necessary to reconstruct PNC Field and have the team return to the Moosic stadium in 2013. The Yankees are playing their scheduled 2012 home games at six different sites to allow for the renovations, which officials have targeted as needing to start close to April 1 in order to be ready for 2013 and beyond. “We’re down to a handful of is-

It all happened under the watchful eyes of Yankees manager Joe Girardi and pitching coach Larry Rothschild. Garcia pitched one-hit ball for six innings against a Pirates Triple-A lineup that included major league infielders Garrett Jones and Pedro Alvarez - who like Swisher and Cervelli for the Yankees - came down from Pittsburgh to get some swings in. Fashioning a superb blend of fastballs and offspeed pitches, Garcia moved his pitches around and hit his spots while striking out four. He left the game after allowing two hits around a walk in the seventh inning. Cervelli, who came down to catch Garcia, was impressed. Garcia said he was satisfied with the performance. "I’m really happy," said the 35year-old Garcia, who went 12-8 with a 3.62 ERA for the Yankees last season. "I want to continue working." The Yankees have a logjam of pitchers battling to line up behind ace C.C. Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda in their rotation. The candidates include Phil Hughes, Garcia, 16-game winner Ivan Nova and recently-acquired Michael Pineda. If Pineda - who’s still trying to build arm strength this spring doesn’t make it, he could wind up starting the season with Scran-

zone as Connecticut failed on several clearing attempts, and took a 1-0 lead when Colin McDonald whipped a pass to a waiting Williams on the backdoor at 6:49. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton scored again 34 seconds later with help from some strong backchecking by Joey Mormina, who broke up a Casey Wellman pass as the Connecticut forward broke towards the net on the rush. The Penguins scrambled up the ice, making it 2-0 when Ben Street muscled out of a Connecticut check on the right boards, cutting towards the net and beating Chad Johnson shortside at 7:23. Wild capped the scoring at 9:01, jumping into the play and lofting a Gibbons drop pass through traffic and into the net from the left post. That was the end for Johnson, who was replaced by Cameron Talbot. “I think we have to continue to build off of this game and make it a repetitive occurrence,” Hynes said. “The way we played tonight (with the) focus, intensity, and commitment is something we have to have moving forward.” Scott Munroe was rarely tested, but made several big third period saves for his fourth shutout of the year. The Penguins conclude the

sues that we’re trying to overcome,” O’Brien said. “We don’t know if an agreement will be reached or not, but we’re working on those issues.” O’Brien said the two sides are putting in the time to try to reach an agreement. Without it being resolved soon, the future of the franchise in northeastern Pennsylvania would be in doubt because the Yankees and International League would need to find a home for 2013. “We’re talking on a daily, hourly basis with the New York Yankees and SWB Yankees with respect to a definitive agreement,” O’Brien said. At the same time, O’Brien said there are discussions with EwingCole regarding the stadium reconstruction process. The project has an estimated cost of $28.7 million. “We’re negotiating a guaranteed maximum price contract with the construction management firm to ensure that Lackawanna County taxpayers are not on the hook if this project goes over budget,” he said.

ton/Wilkes-Barre. There’s no chance of that for either Swisher or Cervelli. Swisher went 1-for-4 in his plate appearances as he tries to recover from a groin injury that kept him out of camp for the past week. It was the second time in three days Swisher’s spent time working out with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s team in minor league camp. "I can’t get enough of you guys," Swisher joked as he joined minor league camp for morning practice. Cervelli singled home Colin Curtis in the second inning during his 2-for-4 day, and barely pulled a shot with home run distance foul during his first trip to the plate. "I feel good," said Cervelli, who’s battled concussions among an assortment of injuries in the past. "I’m just looking to have good at-bats, hit the baseball well. That’s all I care about." In the lineup for Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre was Steve Pearce, the former Pittsburgh Pirate who signed a minor league contract with the Yankees this week. The SWB Yankees will soon get former Oakland A’s slugger Jack Cust, a native of Flemington, N.J. who was recently released by the Houston Astros. Cust was also signed to a minor league contract as an insurance policy in case 41year-old Raul Ibanez doesn’t work out as New York’s lefty designated hitter. Cust is expected to join Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this weekend, well before Thursday’s International League opener at Lehigh Valley. weekend today at 7 p.m. in Albany. Notes: •Sneep (injury), Boris Valabik, Matt Rust, Brandon DeFazio, and Kevin Veilleux were scratches for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Hynes said the team would have more information about Sneep Monday. •Goaltender Brad Thiessen returned Thursday from Pittsburgh. Patrick Kileen was assigned to Wheeling of the ECHL to make room for Thiessen, who was 3-1 in four starts for the parent club. “We feel really comfortable going with either one,” Wild said of Thiessen and Munroe. “There’s no real backup on this team.” •Munroe and Talbot both played collegiately at AlabamaHuntsville, although they were never teammates. Munroe was a Charger from 2003-06, while Talbot was there from 2007-10.

COLLEGE ROUNDUP

Wilkes scores 10 in last 3 innings of comeback win The Times Leader staff

PURCHASE, N.Y. – The Wilkes baseball team posted one of the biggest comebacks in school history trailing by 10 runs entering the seventh inning only to score 12 runs through the final three frames to upend host Manhattanville 13-11 Friday afternoon in a Freedom Conference matchup. Joe Dantas led the offense finishing 3-for-6 with five RBI. Carmen Lopresto was 4-for-6 with three singles, while Matt

Coughlin’s Dannah Hayward, GAR’s Quieterriua Gross, Hanover Area’s Olivia Jendrzejewski and Northwest’s Amanda Jimcosky are all in arm’s reach of a potential state championship entering the season. Dallas’ Regan Rome and Holy Redeemer’s Marissa Durako position themselves to make noise in the distance events after medaling a year ago. It’s not just sheer talent that has WVC coaches optimistic for 2012. Spoiled in unseasonably warm temperatures, area athletes are weeks ahead in their progress and aim to take down school and district records along the way. “Most of the teams are two weeks ahead of schedule,” Hanover Area coach Al Weston said. “We’ve lost just one day of practice; compared to last year when every day was rained out. “There should be some great times by the end of May.” Two new girls track coaches will grace the infield this season. Stanley Mirim takes over the helm as interim coach at GAR. Pat Conaboy heads a Tunkhannock girls’ squad that overachieved at the District 2 Class 3A championships for a fifth place finish. Division 1 After lurking in the shadow of the state’s Class 3A 100 meter hurdles champion, Hayward takes over Black’s leadership role at Coughlin. Black and Hayward jolted a Crusader team that failed to win a dual meet to a fourth place team showing at the state meet in Shippensburg. “We’re going to miss Shelley’s quiet leadership,” said Coughlin coach Paul McGrane, of his former hurdler who now stars for Penn State’s track and field team. “Lucky for us, Dannah is picking up right where she left off.” In a district that is “very loaded with quality hurdlers” like Wyoming Valley West’s Hilari Norris, McGrane noted Hayward may be one of the most overlooked athletes in the district. She placed sixth in the state in the 300 meter hurdles.

We will need to find a way to replace points of the top four point scorers and will need underclassmen to step up and fill in some holes.

Ruch, Tyler Marino, and San Pisanchyn all added two hits each. Stephen Ruch went 3-for-5 with one run driven in. Marc Perry recorded the win pitching a scoreless eighth inning. Wilkes improved to 9-12 overall and 2-5 in conference play, while Manhattanville drops to 6-8 overall and 2-5 in league games. The teams will complete the three-game series today with a twinbill barring the predicted rain forecasted for “No one knows about her,” McGrane said. “We expect her to be outstanding.” Tunkhannock’s Destiny Distasio is the returning district champion in the pole vault. Hazleton Area senior Julia Franzosa aims to reclaim her district title in the javelin. “As far as throwing events, she’s our stud,” Hazleton Area coach Mark Otterbine said. “She’s looking to repeat at districts and better her performance at states.” Returning conference and district champion Dallas faces a cast of teams of that seek to unseat the Mountaineers. With so many teams bringing returning state performers, the conference should remain competitive all season. “Teams like Hazleton, Crestwood and Pittston are going to be tough to match up with due to the quality student-athletes they have in their programs,” Dallas coach Matt Samuel said. “In this division and this district, we are going to need both of those qualities if we are going to be successful this season.” Division 2 Entering the 2012 girls track and field season, returning league and District II Class 2A champion Holy Redeemer finds itself in much better position than the majority of its opponents. Along with the talent, the Royals have a depth that most teams will not be able to keep up with in what is shaping up to be a rebuilding year for several teams. The Royals return a slew of district champions or placewinners from 2011 in a number of events: Marissa Durako won the 1600 and 3200 meter run, Fallyn Boich won the discus and took second in the javelin, Julia Wignot won the long jump and finished third in the triple jump and Marnie Kusakavitch finished third in the 100 meter dash. “We’ve been looking good early on in practice, but putting it down on paper is one thing and we’ve still got to go out there and perform,” Redeemer head coach Garfield McFarlane said. So far, according to McFarlane, the only real bump in Redeemer’s road has been injuries. “Two of our sprinters are on the shelf right now, from earlier

season injuries, and one of the middle distance girls, she has an injury she’s nursing,” McFarlane said. “It’s an easy call to make early in the season to rest them though. We’re not later on in the season, trying to win some points, so right now making sure of the health of our athletes is paramount.” McFarlane is counting on his squad staying healthy to fend off the challenges that he see’s coming his way during the season. “I think that Hanover Area and Wyoming Area, they’re always tough,” McFarlane said. “Hanover always has a lot of good throwers and jumpers. Meyers has some quality sprinters, too, so there’s competition all the way around and we have to concentrate on what we can do out there.” Like the Royals, the Hawkeyes and Warriors bring back some district champions as well and certainly figure to be in the mix for the league championship. Hanover Area’s Olivia Jendrejewski and Northwest’s Amanda Jimcosky finished sixth and seventh, respectively, in the high jump at states. Both juniors are in prime position to leap to championship contention. Jendrejewski, a defending two-time district winner, also placed sixth in the triple jump at states.

Sara Radzwilka, last year’s District Class 3A champ in the 800 meter run returns for the Warriors, along with Sam Shiner, who brought home a fourthplace finish in the long jump. The Warriors, though, have been bitten by the numbers bug and, according to coach Joe Pizano, are in a down year as far as quantity goes and will need to stay healthy to compete for the league crown. While injuries are certainly a part of any sport, there are few teams in the league this season that can afford even as many as the three injuries that the Royals are currently dealing with. GAR, for example, currently has less than 20 girls out for the team – a number that will drastically offset the Grenadiers exceptional athleticism in the sprints and jumps. Quieterra Gross is back for GAR this season after winning the district championship in the 110 hurdles and taking second in the event at the state championships.

Patriots’ newcomers spark win Kielbasa and Houseman hit RBI singles in extra innings to win opener vs. Hazleton Area. By DEEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

HAZLETON — In what has been a productive run under coach Paul Zaffuto, Pittston Area has been able to work young talent into the lineup each year and develop solid baseball players. On Friday, it was two newcomers to the program – a soccer player and a football/basketball player – who came through in extra innings. Pinch hitter John Kielbasa and new second baseman Jordan Houseman laced run-scoring singles in the top of the ninth to lift the Patriots to a 3-1 win at Hazleton Area on opening day for the Wyoming Valley Conference. Kielbasa, making his first appearance for the team in a league game, knocked in A.J. Mancini with a base hit and Houseman followed it up two batters later with an RBI single of his own. “It was a surprise – it was a big surprise,” Zaffuto said of the clutch hits in the ninth. “(Kielba-

sa) was a guy who played soccer and we didn’t really get a chance to see him. Last year he didn’t make the varsity team. But I saw the way he was hitting in the cage, and he puts the bat on the ball.” Houseman, meanwhile, is one of his high school’s top all-around athletes and opened his first varsity baseball season batting leadoff for the Patriots. Not to be overshadowed was a strong performance on the mound from Chuck Bressler and Michael Schwab, who held the Cougars to three hits in nine innings. The duo issued nine walks on the afternoon but did not allow the Cougars to capitalize. Schwab pitched the final four frames, stranding two runners in three of them before setting Hazleton Area down in order to close out the bottom of the ninth. For the Cougars, starter Anthony Zaloga gave up just one run in seven innings of work, striking out six and walking one. With teams gearing up for lowscoring games because of the switch to BBCOR-certified bats, small ball was in full effect in the opener.

The two squads combined for bunt attempts in eight plate appearances, with top hitters on both sides being asked to move runners over. Pittston Area’s Josh Razvillas and Hazleton Area’s Matt Barletta both had a double and a sacrifice bunt. But the problem for the Cougars was coming up with a hit after getting runners into scoring position. “We need to get those timely hits,” Hazleton Area coach Gino Cara said. “We moved them over, but then we’ve got to finish that job. Every run matters, and we’ve got to get them in.” Hazleton Area (0-1) did manage to jump out in front, breaking a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth. Barletta’s double brought home Carl Cara, who reached base three times on the day. Pittston Area (1-0) answered in the top of the sixth as Razvillas doubled and scored on a single by Tyler Loftus. Both teams missed opportunities for another run in the fourth, however, as a suicide squeeze by the Patriots didn’t bounce far enough from the plate for a force out at home and the Cougars had

a runner thrown out trying to score on a wild pitch. That set up the extra-inning affair with the Patriots finally prevailing in nine. Loftus and Anthony Schwab each had two hits for Pittston Area. Carl Cara and Rich Gawel added a single apiece for the Cougars in a matchup of Division I East champions from the past two seasons. “Our objective is get that leadoff hitter on and move him over and try to get him in,” Zaffuto said. “Didn’t work for us early on, but late in the game we got lucky.” Pittston Area ab r h bi Housemn 2b 5 0 1 1 Faggotti pr 0 0 0 0 MSchwab lf-p 4 0 1 0 Razvillas 1b 3 1 1 0 ASchwab 3b 4 0 2 0 Loftus c 4 0 2 1 Hahn rf 3 0 0 0 Bressler p 0 0 0 0 Mancini lf 0 1 0 0 BDelaney dh 4 0 1 0 Rowan cf 3 0 0 0 Kielbasa ph 1 1 1 1 McGinty ss 3 0 0 0 Totals 34 3 9 3 Pittston Area .......................

Featherman’s no-hitter propels Coughlin The Times Leader staff

WRIGHT TWP. — With an experienced group of hitters returning, Coughlin coach Moe Rodzinak said before the season that the success of his team would depend on how quickly his pitching came around. The Crusaders couldn’t have asked for a better start on the mound. Junior Josh Featherman threw a no-hitter and narrowly missed a perfect game in a 5-0 win against Crestwood on Friday in the Wyoming Valley Conference opener for both squads. Only two batters reached base for the Comets, both coming on errors. Featherman struck out seven and did not issue a walk. “He was really on. He pitched well,” Rodzinak said. “It was a nice way to start. It’s only the beginning of the season, though, and we’ve just got to keep it going.” Featherman helped his cause with two RBI while Joe Parsnik finished 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run for Coughlin (1-0). Shane Casey struck out six in six innings for Crestwood (0-1). Coughlin Sod 2b JParsnik ss Gulius c

33.” Lewis had 16 points in the first half as the East took a 44-43 lead at halftime. Hazleton Area’s Travis Buckner had all nine of his points in first 20 minutes (two 20minute halves were played) for the East. The game was close early in the second half until GAR’s Darrell Crawford and MMI Prep’s George Gera hit consecutive threepointers for the East. Another Crawford three a bit later opened

up the first double-digit lead, 6453 with 12:21. While three-pointers were nothing new for Crawford, they were for the West’s James Hawk, Tunkhannock’s 6-foot-10 center. Hawk missed badly on one attempt, laughing at the awry shot. He came back to hit his other attempt from outside the arc, bringing a smile to his face. “You get to try things you’d never tried in regular basketball games,” Hawk said. “I shot a

three, airballed one and made one. It was nice that you could mess around and still have the feel of a real game.” The game didn’t morph into a slam dunk competition in the late minutes, something that has happened in the past. However, there were some plays that were out of the norm of regular-season basketball. Perhaps the best was turned in by West guard James McCann of Valley West. The standout point

HUMBLE, Texas — Brian Davis changed his life last year, and he’s finally seeing the adjustments translate to better golf scores. Davis shot a 65 in his second round Friday and shares the lead at 11 under par with Louis Oosthuizen at the rain-delayed Houston Open. The second round was suspended due to darkness at 7:36 p.m. with 70 players still on the course. Houston resident Jeff Maggert was at 10 under, but he had eight holes left to play in his second

round. Defending champion Phil Mickelson (70), J.B. Holmes (67), Tommy Gainey (67), and Greg Owen (69) finished their second rounds and were two shots behind the leaders at 9 under. Three-time major champion Ernie Els, who must win to qualify for next week’s Masters, was in the group at 5 under after a second-round 69. A thunderstorm dumped 11/4 inches of rain Thursday, causing the backup. The players enjoyed sunny and calm conditions Friday, but the fairways were damp, and players were permitted to lift, clean and place.

East, sparked by driving layups from Kayla Gegaris of Crestwood and Kassie Williams of Tunkhannock gave the East a1612 lead 13 minutes into the game. The game developed into a game of runs from there. The West scored 16 of the next 18 points behind a threepointer from Sarah Shaffer of Northwest and a jumper by Becca Zamonas of Hazleton Area, and sported a 28-18 lead with 17 minutes remaining. The East scored the next 11 points, with a putback by Nikki Sutliff of Lake-Lehman and a layup by Shannon Murray of Holy Redeemer restoring the East lead with 12:30 to play. “You start scoring and it’s getting late, and you know it’s your last chance to play,” said Grace O’Neill of Pittston Area. “You still want to win.” That lead was shortlived, as the West enjoyed a 16-3 outburst to make it 44-32 West with seven minutes to play. Sara Flaherty of Dallas had a key layup and Katie Wolfe of Nanticoke had a pair of baskets, including a nimble reverse layup, to power the West. A late charge by the East featured a couple of baskets from Gegaris, who finished with 11 points. But Zdancewicz scored the West’s final six points and set up a bucket by Danielle Tuzinski of Hanover Area before that to put the game away. “We went on that big run,” Gegaris said. “But the White (West) team started running

the fast break. The momentum of the game really went up a lot.” The three-point shooting contest at halftime delivered the night’s drama, as Shaffer needed double-overtime to defeat O’Neill. Both shooters scored 10 points in the competition, which featured 15 shots from behind the arc, and 10 again in the tiebreaker – another 15 shots. In what became the third round, Shaffer made her final seven shots to win 12-9. “My dad rebounds for me all the time,” Shaffer said of her practice routine. “Grace is a really good shooter. This was a great competition and was a lot of fun.” “I don’t shoot like that very often,” O’Neill said of putting up 45 threes in three minutes. “At practice, we used to shoot them, just not that much.” Zdancewicz paced the 33 honored seniors with 15 points and also pulled down seven rebounds in the game. Wolfe and Tuzinski (three blocks) topped the West with nine rebounds each. Jazma Robertson of Meyers had three blocks for the West. Lisa Kintner of Tunkhannock had eight points, eight rebounds and six blocks for the East. Ann Romanowski of Wyoming Seminary added seven rebounds and Julia Wignot of Holy Redeemer had four steals.

Yanks win; Pineda roughed up The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Michael Pineda experienced soreness in the back of his right shoulder during the New York Yankees’ 13-9 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night. Pineda, bidding for a rotation spot, allowed six runs and seven hits in 22⁄3 innings. The hardthrowing right-hander struggled with his fastball velocity again, averaging around 91 mph. Pineda also said he had issues with his mechanics, opening up his left shoulder while making pitches. He finished with two strikeouts and three walks, throwing just 40 of 71 pitches for strikes. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he is concerned about Pineda, who will have an MRI on Saturday. Carlos Ruiz had a three-run double during a four-run third against Pineda. Cardinals 4, Mets 3 JUPITER, Fla. — Kyle Lohse allowed an unearned run and three hits in six innings and singled in a run to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday. Lohse did receive a scare, though. Omar Quintanilla’s well struck grounder in the third inning hit Lohse in hand. After the play, the trainer came out to check on Lohse, who said he simply needed a few moments to let the tingling in his ring and pinkie fingers subside. Rays 3, Pirates 3 BRADENTON, Fla. — Casey McGehee and Matt Hague each homered Friday for the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 3-3 tie with the Tampa Bay Rays. McGehee hit a solo shot in the fourth inning. Hague had a two-run homer in the seventh. Tigers 6, Orioles 4 SARASOTA, Fla. — Tony

Plagman hit a tiebreaking, tworun triple off Jim Johnson in the ninth inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 6-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday. Johnson walked Curt Casali and Daniel Fields before Plagman hit a two-out liner to rightcenter. Johnson, who is dueling with Kevin Gregg for the closer’s job, has a 7.71 ERA this spring. Red Sox 9, Twins (ss) 7 FORT MYERS, Fla. — Daniel Bard made his final case for a rotation spot, allowing three runs and four hits in six innings Friday as the Boston Red Sox beat a Minnesota Twins’ split squad 9-7. Bard, who struck out seven and walked three, is competing with Alfredo Aceves, Felix Doubront and Aaron Cook for the final two starting berths. Cody Ross homered twice for Boston, raising his spring training total to six.

NEW ORLEANS — Saints coach Sean Payton is appealing his season-long suspension from the NFL for his role in New Orleans’ bounty system. And he’s not the only one looking for a little relief from the penalties handed down by Commissioner Roger Goodell. General manager Mickey Loomis, assistant coach Joe Vitt and the Saints organization each decided to appeal on Friday. Payton will also ask NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his guidance on the parameters of the suspension, which runs through next year’s Super Bowl, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the league and the Saints did not announce Payton’s plan to appeal. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel did confirm that Loomis was appealing his eight-game suspension and, separately, the team would challenge its $500,000 fine and loss of secondround draft picks this year and in 2013. Vitt, suspended for six games, is doing the same. His representative, David Cornwell, confirmed the decision in an email to the AP. Goodell last week announced the suspension of Payton, starting Sunday, for his role in connection with New Orleans’ bounty system, which offered improper cash bonuses for big hits that either knocked opponents out of games or left them needing help off of the field. Former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who left the Saints after last season to join the St. Louis Rams, ran the bounty

program and has been suspended indefinitely. The commissioner has said since the unprecedenPayton ted penalties were announced that the Saints’ coach would likely be allowed to continue working as his appeal was resolved. However, he added that the challenge would be expedited, indicating that Payton would not likely be able to add on much work time should his appeal be upheld. Goodell also said at NFL meetings this week in Florida that Payton could have some contact with the team but did not go into detail, and Payton indicated that he was still a little unclear about that, as well. With all the uncertainty, Payton is trying to compress as much planning for the 2012 season into whatever time he has left at Saints headquarters this weekend. The NFL could not immediately provide details on how Payton’s decision to file an appeal on Friday would affect the timeline for the process to play out. “The decision to appeal is for Sean Payton to make and announce as he deems appropriate,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. “If there are appeals, the commissioner will arrange for expedited hearings, as he stated at the league meeting.” The results of the appeal could affect whether Bill Parcells comes out of retirement to take over as interim coach while his former offensive assistant and protégé is suspended. Parcells has said he would consider coaching the Saints if asked. At a spring training game in Jupiter, Fla., on Friday, Parcells declined to answer questions about the possibility. “I know better than that,” Parcells said.

NBA ROUNDUP

Wizards knock Sixers out of first place against the worst team in the league. Both the Rockets and Jazz were also in action Friday night. They got it behind a balanced effort as Ty Lawson had 14 points and 10 assists, while Corey Brewer added 17 points off the bench on 7-for-11 shooting, and Kenneth Faried had 12 points.

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Cartier Martin tied a career-high with 20 points in his second game under a 10-day contract, and the Washington Wizards built a big lead and held on to it for a change, breaking a five-game losing streak Friday night with a 97-76 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The loss knocked Philadelphia out of first place in the Atlantic Division. The Wizards had blown double-digit leads in their last three home games, but this time they didn’t let up, playing with speed and hustle the entire game — not to mention 47 points from the bench. The 76ers, meanwhile, have lost six of nine and are struggling to score. They had only 36 points at halftime and found themselves outhustled to most of the loose balls. Washington outrebounded Philadelphia 52-38 for the game, and the 76ers had only two fast-break points in the first half. Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young scored 14 apiece for the 76ers, who have lost six of nine.

Consumers open their wallets in February

B R I E F

Stocks way up for quarter

Stocks wrapped up the quarter with another gain on Friday, this time driven by a report that consumer spending rose in February at the fastest pace in seven months. It was the strongest quarter for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index since 2009, and the strongest start to the year since 1998. The Dow Jones industrial average had its best first quarter since 1998. The Nasdaq finished the day with a slight loss, although it has gained almost 19 percent for the quarter.

By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — U.S. consumers boosted their spending in February by the most in seven months, raising expectations for stronger growth at the start of the year. Americans spent more even as their income barely grew. To make up the difference, many cut back on saving. Consumer spending rose 0.8

The sale of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com will likely be announced Monday, according to several sources. The buyers of Philadelphia Media Network Inc. are a group of local investors, led by George E. Norcross III, executive chairman of Conner Strong & Buckelew, a New Jersey insurance brokerage, and Lewis Katz, former chairman of Interstate Outdoor Advertising. The investor group has spent much of the past two months negotiating to acquire PMN from its hedge-fund owners in a transaction valued at between $55 million and $60 million, according to multiple reports.

percent last month, the Commerce Department said Friday. The biggest increase since July coincided with the best threemonth hiring stretch in two years. Paul Dales, an economist at Capital Economics, suggested that estimated annual growth for the economy in the current January-March quarter may be revised up — to around 2.5 percent, compared with earlier es-

timates of about 2 percent. Consumer spending drives the majority of economic activity. Some of the higher spending last month reflected surging gas prices. But consumers spent more on other goods and services, too. After excluding inflation, which was due mainly to gas prices, spending rose a solid 0.5 percent. The job gains are not resulting in bigger paychecks for

Japan aims to double its sales tax

Foreign companies pushed to give more to Chinese employees

By MARI YAMAGUCHI Associated Press

MasterCard and Visa warned Friday that some of the data in their cardholder accounts may have been breached. The companies don’t directly issue credit cards — they process card transactions for the banks that do. MasterCard said that it had notified banks — as well as law enforcement — of a potential problem with a third party, "U.S.-based entity." The company’s own systems haven’t been compromised, MasterCard said. Visa said the same.

TOKYO — Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said he is staking his political career on doubling Japan’s sales tax to avoid a European-style debt crisis after his Cabinet on Friday endorsed the unpopular reform. The Cabinet gave its approval to a bill that would raise the 5 percent sales tax in two stages — to 8 percent in 2014 and to 10 percent by 2015. The bill’s fate is still uncertain because it has to be debated and voted on in parliament to be enacted into law. Noda said raising the sales tax is necessary to help ease revenue shortfalls caused by the country’s aging population and shrinking work force. Japan is the world’s fastest-aging country. With Japan’s national debt already twice the size of its economy, Noda and his allies have warned that urgent steps are needed to prevent a crisis similar to the one gripping Europe. “The step is for the future of the people and the country and cannot be avoided or put off,” Noda told a news conference. “I will stake my political career to achieve the goal.” The plan is unpopular with the public and opposed by opposition lawmakers as well as some within Noda’s own Democratic Party of Japan. The Cabinet approval of the bill rattled the ruling party and its coalition partner, the People’s New Party. Several ruling party lawmakers resigned from top positions in the education, health and internal ministries in protest. A veteran politician who heads the People’s New Party has threatened to break away. Noda said a sales tax increase would be the fairest and most stable source of revenue to create a society that promises “a better tomorrow than today.” He said tax breaks and other measures would cushion the impact of the sales tax hike on low-income citizens. The maximum tax rate for high income earners would also be raised.

Honda recalls SUVs

Apple pledge could lead to China wage hikes

Honda says it is recalling more than 550,000 CR-V and Pilot SUVs because the low-beam headlights can fail. The automaker says it will fix a problem with the headlight wiring. Affected vehicles include 2002-2004 CR-Vs and 2003 Pilots. Honda says there isn’t enough slack in the wiring leading to the headlight switch. Over time the wires can work their way loose and cut off the lowbeam lights. No crashes or injuries have been reported due to the problem.

EIJING — A pledge by the manufacturer of Apple’s iPhones and iPads to limit work hours at its factories in China could force other global corporations to hike pay for Chinese workers who produce the world’s consumer electronics, toys and other goods. Foxconn Technology’s promise comes as Beijing is pushing foreign companies to share more of their revenues with Chinese employees. It follows a report by a labor auditor hired by Apple Inc. that found Foxconn was regularly violating legal limits on overtime, with factory em-

Did you win it all last night? The more than half a billion dollars? No amount of money can buy us a nice day here today. The rain overnight will diminish this morning and turn to scattered showers and drizzle lasting into the afternoon and cloudy skies will keep high temperatures below 50. Rainfall totals will range under a half inch. Partial clearing tonight will lead to only limited sunshine on Sunday with April showers in the afternoon. Despite today's drop in temperatures, this month will still end up being the warmest March on record making seven months in a row with above average temperatures. - Tom Clark

n home decor, there’s something about the start of spring. When life’s renewing itself outdoors, we feel the urge to revive our interiors too. This season, decor offerings are especially upbeat. Start with the palette. “Saturated” is a word being used a lot; it means ripe plum hues, intense tangerines, rich indigos, verdant greens, zingy turquoises, hot reds and peppy yellows. Dee Schlotter, a color expert with PPG Pittsburgh Paints, says exuberant orange is No. 1 on her trend radar. “It’s full of joy and playful,” says Schlotter, who also cites Geranium Pink as a hot hue. “It goes really well with orange, and it’s a happy, girly color.” Teal and turquoise are back after a lengthy retirement, and with experience in mid-century modern and traditional decor, they have legs that will carry them into fall. Erin Olson loved the color

family enough to devote a blog to it; the House of Turquoise follows all things blue-green. “What I love about turquoise is that it can be paired with any other color, since it has both warm and cool undertones,” she says. “My personal favorite is using turquoise as a fun punch of color to an otherwise neutral space. A turquoise throw pillow, lamp or rug will instantly bring new life to your room and can easily be switched out,” she says. Crisp, clean white’s a common counterpoint, but you’ll see black as a foil as well. Graphic prints pop in bold colors, and zigzags and stripes are all over the home-accessories marketplace. So are lattice and ironwork prints, big and little florals and abstracts. African hand-block, Moroccan and Silk Road patterns have crossed over See SPRING, Page 4C

o if all went according to meteorological plan – or, OK, prediction – plenty of us in these parts woke up this morning to snow. Now this might seem an especially cruel twist of fate, doubly so if lately we’d been toying with the idea of a.c. in March. But I urge you to embrace Mother Nature no matter how fickle her behavior. In the words of Shania Twain, let her change her mind a million times. We should just go with the flow. Or the snow, as it were. I may have a defensive ulterior motive here, but forget that for now. First things first: Proud to say I’ve been on a tear this mild month. In an unprecedented display of energy and efficiency, attributable largely to the swell days now apparently behind us, I’ve made all kinds of early headway on tasks I every other year regret waiting far too long to tackle. For one thing, I’m already 75 percent finished with my twice-a-year game of swap-the-closets, and anything wool or flannel or otherwise hot and itchy is out of sight and mind. For another, The Tipsy Tiki (a.k.a. leaning lounge-garage) has already had its first passthrough and inspection. The patio furniture is all unstacked and placed and the umbrella popped and planted. I even hung the little metal sign with the flip-the-way-you-feel attachment indicating whether happy hour is in session or (boo) over for the evening. Then I went away for a few days. And that mama who pulls the strings in the skies? Well, she made a big, fat, frustrating mess. Came home to find: The outdoor pillows no longer on the backyard chairs but upside-down in the dirt. The solar-powered tiki-torch – a piece of kitsch I love, in part because it actually works – snapped into three pieces. The outdoor porch carpet all haphazard and askew. And the lawn, freshly cared for by my visiting angel of springtime, once again arrayed all snazzy in “gumballs” fired like weapons from my favorite tree. (I won’t repeat myself, except to remind for any who care that I have in my keeping a frontyard tower of terror that loves me so much it gifts me with pockets full of prickly presents almost daily this time of year. Picking them all up is my most enjoyable winter penance.) Darn these mighty winds. They also seem to have scooped up (and deposited elsewhere) at least half of my pricy red-rubber mulch, because I swear I don’t remember so many bare spots. Ah well, said I to myself. Time to go back in the house. That’ll teach you to jump the gun. And that’s when I spotted it: a little sled hanging by a little rope on the knob of a BIG door that wished me a Merry Christmas. Just when I’d decided I was so proud of myself, for all this unusual, extraordinary timeliness. Merry Christmas, for crying out loud. Pride is such folly. A question: What good is decoration if three full months elapse and you live in the place and you notice it not even once? Closer inspection revealed, as in the past, that this wasn’t the only piece of paraphernalia du Noel still hanging around either. Apparently, my attention to detail could use some attention itself. You know how sometimes you discover a cobweb you could wear as a head wrap? How did this come to pass? Where you were when this was but a finger of dust? These are the deep, reflective questions we all must ask ourselves on occasion. Also: If I’m such hot stuff in the efficiency department why is my porch still crawling with shamrocks and leprechauns and wishing all who happen by a Happy St. Patrick’s Day? Is it even worth it now to whip out the wooden carrots and pastel eggs? Or do I just quit the fight and go back to bed until winter is really over? On that note: Happy Easter, all. No matter what my house tells you. Reach Sandra Snyder, the editor of At Home, at 831-7383 or ssnyder@timesleader.com.

The U.S. EPA says it does not require special disposal measures for the small quantities of single-use, dry-cell household batteries a typical homeowner might want to get rid of. As long as the batteries were made in the past 15 years or so, they can be disposed of in the trash. Please note that the disposal information applies only to the batteries I mentioned. Other types of batteries, including button-cell and rechargeable batteries, may still need to be treated as hazardous waste or have special handling requirements. — McClatchy-Tribune News Service

YOUR PLACE ALAN J. HEAVENS the mice, but it might not keep them out completely.” Any port in the storm: Kathy had a mouse living in her clothes washer. “When it overflowed, the repairman assumed that the tube that senses when the tub is filled was cut, broken, or torn (turned out it was gnawed on), and he took apart the top plate around the dials. It was there we found the culprit in his nest. “The sensing tube was replaced, and a few traps set up in the laundry room put the problem to rest. “I had inadvertently attracted the mouse with a self-feeding cat dish for dry food that I discontinued using. Now my cats are fed twice a day and no food is left lying around anywhere.” To prevent mice in the dishwasher, she suggests rinsing dishes thoroughly before being put inside. “I’ve been told that’s better for the dishwasher,” she said. Sewer-gas odors: A regularly asked question about what causes them brings another possible source. “I had a similar experience; it turned out to be coming from the electric hot water heater. “The house had well water with a water softener to remove significant calcium and iron content. When I switched from extra coarse softener salt to a standard grade, the odor started. I checked the owner’s manual for the heater, and it stated that odors can occur with certain mineral compositions. “I switched back to the extra-coarse grade, and the problem was solved. Changing the softener salt type on an existing system may work, like it did for me.” Questions? E-mail Alan J.

I BEGIN today’s exercise thanking the 118 readers from Maine to California who e-mailed me with recommendations on preventing cloudy glassware from coming out of the dishwasher. That will do. As far as which way to place forks and knives, up or down, in the dishwasher, Bernice Wissler has determined how I will do so from now on: “I put them both top up and bottom up in order to be sure that none of them ‘nest.’ The silverware holder has six compartments and we usually have more than six forks, for example, so having some facing up and some down makes for a more even distribution.” Thanks, Bernice. Things tall people never consider: “I recently had a front-loading washer and dryer installed in my family room. Initially I thought the pedestals were an excellent idea; however, I discovered that the detergent/bleach dispenser was at eye level for me — I’m 5 feet, 2 inches tall. This is a safety issue for petite women and for any children in the household who would be using the washer.” Remember the mice-in-thedishwasher problem? An acquaintance who moved to the Pittsburgh area e-mailed me about her experience with Mickey, et al: “Mice got into my dishwasher through the hole in my cabinet wall created by the dishwasher plumbing. (My dishwasher is set under the counter next to an undercounter cabinet.) “Seeking a warm winter home, the mice climbed five flights up through the apartment building and entered my domain through the tiny spaces left when the round pipe was inserted through a rectangular hole. “Best cure is to seal around the pipe so that there are no more tiny spaces. “That curly copper ‘nesting’ wire (that is not what it is called, but it is what it looks like) may discourage

SPRING Continued from Page 1C

from last season. Not a fan of bright? Look for a whole world of calming neutrals such as soft putty, grellow (a gray/yellow blend), greige (a gray/beige), aqua, pewter, copper, vanilla and shell pink. You’ll see lots of texture in this category: weathered wood, animal hide, burnished metals, burlap and gauzy cottons. Honeycomb patterns, naturalistic motifs such as twigs, leaves and birds, watery Impressionist prints and airy florals soothe the soul. Neutrals are “taking the popular gray trend and moving it forward, by adding warmth with natural materials such as jute and linen, and then giving it a real punch by adding a sunny pop of yellow,” says Sherwin-Williams’ color marketing director, Jackie Jordan. Repainting walls in a fresh spring hue is one way to update a room, but if you’re not ready to commit in a major way, small changes also can alter a room’s mood. Try a lemony throw, clean white paint trim, a teal rug or sandy-toned drapery. Go for a bright, candy-hued lamp base and pick the color up again in a big fruit bowl. In the kitchen, replace cooking tools with new ones in luscious tomato red.

This season, there’s something especially upbeat about the home-décor offerings sprouting up in stores. Graphic prints pop in colors, and zigzags and stripes are all over the home-accessories marketplace this spring.

Senior in high school is eager to prevent life from going to the dogs Dear Abby: I’m a 17-year-old senior with a single, very controlling mother. It’s impossible to have a sit-down conversation with her because she’s always working to support us. She works as a dog groomer. She’s polite to her customers and friends, but she turns into a witch when it’s just her and us kids. I have never had any freedom. I go to school, come home and groom dogs. She makes me feel useless unless I’m working for her. She won’t let me work, doesn’t want me to go to college and won’t give me my Social Security card or birth certificate, so I cannot get on with my life. Help. — Teen Who Needs Advice

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Teen: Where is your father in all of this? If your mother doesn’t want you to see your birth certificate, it may be that there’s something she’s afraid you will see. Her controlling behavior does seem excessive for a girl your age. In a few months you will be an adult. If you wish to continue your education, you should talk to a counselor at school about it and inquire about scholarships, student aid and how to apply. Do not let your mother’s disapproval discourage you from trying.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I’m dating a hard-tofind kind of man. He is charming, funny, polite and very sweet. He is my Prince Charming except for one thing. He’s a racist. I have asked him not to say demeaning things about people of other races to me. Most of his friends are like that, too. When he meets someone of a different race he’s polite and friendly, but when he sees someone on TV, or walking on the street he makes derogatory comments. I’m considering breaking up with him over this. Am I overly sensitive, or is this a legitimate concern? — Too Sensitive in Texas Dear Too Sensitive: You’re not overly sensitive. We are living in an increasingly diverse society that in

CRYPTOQUOTE

years to come will only become more so. Birds of a feather tend to flock together, and so do racists. Unless you want to become increasingly isolated and surrounded only by people who think like your “Prince” does, find someone who thinks like you do. Dear Abby: My cousin “Carla” just had a baby. She’s in her early 20s, unemployed and living in a condo her parents bought her. Her deadbeat boyfriend lives with her. They smoke pot and love to party, although Carla has abstained since she got pregnant. When I received an invitation to her baby shower, I declined. I don’t think her having a baby is a good thing, and I didn’t feel comfortable celebrating this “good” news. I have not offered my opinion on the sub-

ject, but when my sister asked me why and I told her, she called me selfish. Do you think she is right? — Principled Cousin Dear Principled Cousin: I don’t think you were selfish for sticking with your principles. Nor do I think your unemployed cousin and her deadbeat boyfriend are heading down the road of parenthood in a responsible way. Because you didn’t feel you would enjoy the event, you were right to decline the invitation. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ve always believed that you don’t have to know how to do something in order to actually do it. You get an overall sense of things, and you flow with that impulse. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your halfhearted effort will yield the same result as your wholehearted effort. It’s not fair, but it’s how things are now. You’ve put in the time and paid your dues. You’ve earned the right to perks. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re looking for love, and you will find it. Your true love is likely the one who makes you laugh, makes you wish you were better dressed, or makes you dinner. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When it’s time to be tough, you’ll show no vulnerability. Being able to defend yourself verbally, emotionally, physically, financially and otherwise makes you feel so confident that no one would dare cross you anyway. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your knack for finding things will come into play. You could save the day by simply remembering what others did and said when they themselves cannot seem to recall it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your work has improved so much that you almost hate to look back at the early, awkward stages. You’ll notice how far you’ve come, and so will others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It might be difficult for you and a partner to agree on financial matters, and your preferences may clash in other small ways. But as long as you still agree on the big picture, you can work things out.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll control your spending and calorie intake. You’ll hold your tongue and manage your vices. But you can’t help who you love. You’ll enjoy the quiet time you spend with your feelings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You recognize the wisdom in silliness and naive beliefs. You don’t mind playing the part of the clown philosopher or eternal optimist if it makes your loved ones feel happier. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re drawn to upbeat people. Shake hands and introduce yourself. By adding only one new friend to your life, you will move your social life to a new level. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You appreciate the one who will interrupt his or her cherished routine in order to accommodate you. Even if the effort is small, you don’t take this for granted. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The universe teaches patience and acceptance. Your tolerance grows. If the whole world could be just 10 percent more tolerant, it would seem as though paradise descended upon us. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 31). The relationship sector of your life gets a blast of exciting energy in April. The one you’ve known forever sparks new interest and curiosity in your heart. May brings a promotion. In July, you’ll realize a personal goal. Your hobbies and talents will move you into a different professional realm. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 31, 19 and 28.

SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 2012 PAGE 1D

New 2012 Buick Verano both a hit and a miss during the presidential administrations of Carter or Reagan rather than those of Taft or Wilson. It doesn’t; it can’t. On paper it should, for the multitude of reasons you’ve just read. But this exterior design takes precisely zero chances and rather than dispel the notion that a Buick is only for people who buy Ensure by the pallet, it reinforces it. There needs to be a unique or aspirational element to Verano; something to draw the attention of thirtysomethings at a stoplight and cause them to ask "What is that?" and then pick up their iPhone and Google it. Buick had an opportunity to really change the perception of its brand and to move it into the perspective of a younger buyer. But it missed by a mile. Including features such as the Intellilink infotainment system and pricing the car very competitively is a nice start, but it’s not enough. Throwing in a free Xbox game with every tube of denture paste doesn’t make people want to buy denture paste. Styling and features aside, another element of the Verano’s handicap is that the cars it’s targeting have gobs more luxury street cred. The competitive Lexus is one of the cheapest cars that company makes; buy one and you have the same brand of car as the guy in the full-size, $113,000 Lexus LS Hybrid. Although it may seem silly on its face, this kind of brand equity matters. Instead, this Buick will appeal to the same demographic the rest of the brand’s lineup attracts and perhaps younger emptynesters who are seeking affordable luxury but don’t need a large car. Those buyers will get a comfortable, quiet, economical product that they will like very much.

DAVID UNDERCOFFLER WHEELS The Verano is a new compact sedan from that near-luxury nameplate, Buick. It’s an impressive, competitively priced car; a stellar cut from the quiet and comfortable motoring cloth. A great car in many respects, the Verano is also an unmitigated failure.Yep, a single car is poised to both flourish and fail. All the goodwill this Verano works hard to achieve — goodwill I came to wholly appreciate during my week with a near-loaded, $28,245 example — may be largely undone by an odd miscalculation by Buick and parent General Motors Co. The Verano’s failure isn’t its driving experience. The car is powered by a 2.4liter, direct-injected four-cylinder engine that makes 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Although its 3,300 pounds is a tad heavy for this Buick’s size — it’s smaller than a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry — the engine has just enough power to move the car sufficiently. That motor is paired to a sixspeed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The gearbox routes power to the front wheels and helps move the Verano from 0 to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds, according to Car and Driver. This engine and transmission are the only units available on the Verano, and they work in concert with each other to create a smooth, capable driving experience. The result is a fuel economy rated at 21 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway. In just under 200 miles of testing on more city streets than highways, I averaged 22 mpg. Also smooth is the Verano’s handling. Based very loosely on the Chevy Cruze, it uses the same rear suspension setup; something called a Watts Z-link. Without getting into a dissertation on physics, this setup essentially gives the car more responsive handling than you might expect from a Buick pedigree. Meanwhile, driving over rough roads is also nicely dampened. Turning inward, this Buick’s failure isn’t its passenger experience. The front seats are so comfortable I almost stole them for my living room. They’re soft and supportive but have the firmness and bolstering you know is good for you. The back seats are good too, but they’re not the thrones of the front.

My test car came with the Luxury package, which swaddled those seats in a beautiful deep tan leather Buick calls Choccachino. This option also adds a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, keyless entry, push-button start and a nine-speaker Bose sound system. The interior is well-constructed and feels worthy of its near-luxury status. The standard full-color touch screen, which controls the stereo and optional navigation, is intuitive and fast-acting. Below the screen sit the climate control and redundant buttons for the stereo. Although they have a quality feel to them, there are a bit too many buttons, and their layout could be more straightforward. My only other complaint about the interior was the just-too-wide gaps between the doors and the dashboard. The Verano is also exceedingly quiet inside. Mausoleums are louder. This is no accident, as Buick used tricks such as laminated glass on the doors and windshield as

well as fiberglass stuffed into the door panels. Finally, passengers can enjoy the quiet comfort of the Verano knowing the car has impressive safety features such as 10 air bags, ABS, stability control and a tire-pressure monitoring system. Despite all this content and safety, the Verano’s failure isn’t its value. The car starts at $23,470, which is less than a top-end Chevy Cruze. Every Verano comes with amenities including a six-speaker stereo system with XM Satellite radio, USB and auxiliary inputs, a 7-inch touch screen display, Intellilink infotainment system with Pandora and Bluetooth streaming audio, automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and fog lights. The aforementioned Luxury package added $3,380. A sunroof and paint upgrade brought the grand total to $28,245. Since the only feature my car was missing was the $795 navigation system, you can get the

loaded potato version for a smidge over $29,000. But if the Verano’s value, comfort and especially its seats deserve an ode, the car’s styling deserves a eulogy. This is where the car fails. To be clear, the Verano is certainly not a bad-looking car; much of its look is similar to the rest of Buick’s conservatively styled products at the moment. It has a prominent chrome grille and wide, eager headlights out front. At the back is a handsome, straightforward design, accented only by a pair of thick chrome trim pieces that seem to draw their inspiration from the eyebrows of the late Andy Rooney. But Buick takes this car, replete with conservative, practical luxury, and tells us the Verano will target people considering a Lexus IS250, Acura’s TSX or even Volvo’s compact C30 two-door hatchback. The unstated goal? That this car would appeal to people born
