Synthetic drugs are taking toll nationwide

In speech at Pa. wind turbine plant, president says America needs to move toward independence from foreign oil

Obama: Pump pain will continue By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

FAIRLESS HILLS — Pitching the promise of energy independence, President Barack Obama cautioned Wednesday that it’s going to be tough to transition from America’s oil-dependent economy and acknowledged there’s little he can do to lower gas prices over the short term. “I’m just going to be honest with you. There’s not much we can do Obama next week or two weeks from now,” the president told workers at a wind turbine plant. It’s a theme Obama’s struck before as he tries to show voters he’s attuned to a top economic concern with gas prices pushing toward $4 a gallon. Obama said he wants to move toward “a future where America is less dependent on foreign oil, more reliant on clean energy produced by workers like you.” That will happen by reducing oil imports, tapping domestic energy sources and shifting the nation to renewable and less polluting sources of energy, such as wind, the president says. He has set a goal of reducing oil imports by See GAS, Page 12A

Use of substances including bath salts is sending thousands to the ER. By JIM SALTER and JIM SUHR Associated Press

INDIANOLA, Iowa — Synthetic substances that mimic marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs are making users across the nation seriously ill, causing seizures and hallucinations and even killing some people. The products are often packaged as incense or bath salts and can be obtained for as little as $10 at many head shops. As more people experiment with them, the results are becoming evi- INdent at hospitals: SIDE: West a sharp spike in Pittston the number of us- joins effort to ban bath ers who show up salts, page with problems 2A. ranging from labored breathing and rapid heartbeats to extreme paranoia and delusions. The symptoms can persist for days. At the request of The Associated Press, the American Association of Poison Control Centers analyzed nationwide figures on calls related to synthetic drugs. The findings showed an alarming increase in the number of people seeking medical attention. At least 2,700 people have fallen ill since January, compared with fewer than 3,200 cases in all of 2010. At that pace, medical emergencies related to synthetic drugs could go up nearly fivefold by the end of the year.

WVW OKs $15M in borrowing for project Bond from stimulus part of plan to renovate and expand State Street school.

By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

KINGSTON - The Wyoming Valley West School Board on Wednesday approved borrowing more than half of the $28 million for the renovation and expansion of the State Street school. At a special meeting, the board voted 8-0 to fund the project with a $15 million bond that is part of the The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or federal stimulus package. Joseph Rodriguez, finance manager, said the board could not pass up participating in the Qualified School Construction Bond program available to other schools in the state. “It’s a zero-interest bond,” he said after the meeting. The resolution placed the maximum amount of the bond principal at $18,461,538 and said it would pay for the costs of “planning, designing, constructing, furnishing and/or equipping of capital projects” of the district, as well as paying for the “costs and expenses relating to the issuance” of the note. “We hope to see the bids back at the end of May,” said Rodriguez, adding construction will start in June. The district will borrow another $13 million to complete the funding and that will be a tax-exempt bond, said Rodriguez. How all the borrowing will affect district taxpayers is not known at this time, he said. The district is in the process of preparing its budget, which must be submitted by June 30. This year is especially difficult because under Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget, the district is losing $2 million in state funding, Rodriguez said. Attorney Brian Koscelansky of Stevens & Lee, the bond counsel for the district, said still to be determined are the annual payments and how long it will take to pay back the note. A preliminary payment schedule showed approximately $2.3 million a year, but that will be lowered once it’s determined how many other schools participate in the program, said Koscelansky. Likewise whether the district opts to pay off the debt in 14 or 17 years also depends upon the final tally of participating schools, he said.

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – A man was arraigned Wednesday on charges he threatened his sister and officers with a bow and arrow. Charl R. Denton, 49, of Reese Street, was charged with two counts each of aggravated assault, simple assault and terroristic threats. He was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $20,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Police were summoned to Denton’s residence late Tuesday afternoon to investigate a domestic disturbance involving his sister, Coleen Drazba, who told a 911 call-taker that Denton threatened to shoot an arrow at police officers if they showed up. As officers took cover around the residence, Denton walked out the front door holding empty beer cans. After he was in custody, Drazba told police her brother threatened her with a sword and threatened to shoot her with an arrow, the complaint says. Police said in the complaint they found a bow and arrow and a sword in the residence. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 12 in Central Court.

Dismissal of ‘sexting’ suit sought Wyoming County wants suit filed by former Tunkhannock Area student tossed.

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – An attorney for Wyoming County has filed a court motion seeking the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a former Tunkhannock Area student who alleged her rights were violated when police confiscated her cell phone as part of a “sexting” investigation. Attorney Michael Donohue of Scranton claims the lawsuit,

filed by a female identified as “N.N.,” does not state a valid cause of action against the county or law enforcement officials who took part in the investigation. The suit, filed in May 2010 by attorney Vic Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union, stems from a 2009 investigation of “sexting” – which refers to the transmission of sexually explicit photos via the Internet or cell phones – at the Tunkhannock Area School District. The suit originally named the school district and several school officials as defendants.

The district was dismissed from the case last year after it agreed to pay a $33,000 settlement without admitting wrongdoing. The suit alleges former Wyoming County District Attorney George Skumanick and Detective David Ide violated the girl’s right to privacy when they viewed and printed a semi-nude photo of her that was stored on her cell phone. Walczak also contends the girl was subjected to unlawful search and seizure because Skumanick and Ide searched her phone without having probable cause to believe she had

committed a crime. In his motion to dismiss, Donohue says appellate courts have held that school officials need only show that a search conducted on school property was “reasonable” to protect the interests of the school. They do not have to show the search was based on the belief a student had committed a crime. In this case, Tunkhannock Area was in the midst of investigating the improper transmission of explicit photos by students, which meets the “reasonableness” test, Donohue says. Because of that it cannot be held liable, he says.

W-B mayor hopefuls deny backing calls

The phone survey has been asking city residents which candidate they support. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Telephones have been ringing in city homes from callers somewhere in Florida asking about the Democratic candidates running for mayor. Two of the three candidates – Mayor Tom Leighton and Charlotte Raup – said they had nothing to do with the survey. The third Democrat in the race – Nick Punko of Lloyd’s Lane – did not return messages left on his cell phone. David Yonki, author of the online LuLac Political Letter, said his wife, Mary Ann, did take the survey and through conversation she was able to learn that the questioner was in Florida.

None of the participants The Times Leader talked to Wednesday that participated in the survey could tell where the calls came from or what the name of the company was. “They didn’t say where they were from,” said Liza DeWitt of Parsons. “They asked me which candidate I was supporting and I told them (Raup).” DeWitt, Sharon Katsock, also of Parsons, and Julie Kopec of North End said they are all supporting Raup, and each participated in the telephone survey. All three said negative questions were asked about Raup and Leighton, and they agreed there seemed to be more negative questions about Raup. Leighton said he had nothing to do with the survey. “I did not,” he answered when asked if he commissioned the survey. “I’ve been told by some of

my supporters that they have received phone calls from somebody asking negative questions about me. I don’t know who is doing it.” Raup said she didn’t commission the survey either. “I know it wasn’t Nick Punko that did the survey,” Raup said. In a letter to the editor in Wednesday’s Times Leader, Raup said “it is a desperate, baseless allegation from an opponent who is funding this survey.” Raup, coordinator of the city’s Crime Watch organization, has been at odds with Leighton in recent years. The main issue had been Leighton’s refusal to assign a police officer as a liaison to Crime Watch and attend meetings. Leighton did appoint an officer to the position this year. Raup said the survey implies she has “interfered with police work and hindered police investigations.”

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” Raup said. She said she has received recognition, praise and awards from the state police, governor’s office, the district attorney’s office and local law enforcement officers regarding her cooperation and information that has lead to the arrest and conviction of many individuals. DeWitt said the survey seemed to favor Leighton. “It seemed to be a campaign thing for the mayor,” DeWitt said. “Somebody’s commissioning the survey.” Katsock said the caller’s number came up “unknown” on her caller ID. Kopec said her caller didn’t seem to push for either candidate. “They said they were doing an independent survey,” Kopec said. “They weren’t really trying to sell one candidate or the other.”

West Pittston eyes ban on bath salts Borough preparing law on sale, possession of synthetic drugs.

By AMANDA MYRKALO Times Leader Correspondent

WEST PITTSTON – Borough council Tuesday night asked the borough solicitor to prepare an ordinance banning the sale and possession of bath salts and synthetic drugs in West Pittston. Solicitor Mark Bufalino will start the process, which includes preparing an ordinance and reviewing it at a public meeting. Council expects it to be completed in about five weeks. Council President Brian Thornton said the ordinance, proposed by Councilman Pete Musinski, can be reviewed, depending on state and federal decisions, at a later date. Musinski’s key point in the ordinance is to specifically state sale and possession in the ban if the federal government does not. In other action, council ta-

bled a vote on bids for improvement of Susquehanna Avenue. The borough received five bids, ranging from the low of $86,941 from Popple Construction Inc., to $179,370 from Smith Blacktopping Inc. Council will discuss awarding a contract for the work at a later date, after borough engineer Jeremy Nelson confirms numbers and accuracy. The project will include repaving, curbing and new inlets for portions of the street. The work is possible through a $110,000 grant only Susquehanna Avenue is eligible for based upon the Census from 10 years ago. It was also announced street cleaning on streets with no sewer construction, and lawn waste pickup on all streets, start next week. Mayor William Goldsworthy urged the public to “please observe no parking signs for street cleaning. They will start to be enforced next week.”

Man gets 25 to 30 years in sexual assault of young girls By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Plymouth man charged with sexually assaulting two girls was sentenced Wednesday to 25 to 50 years in state prison. Matthew Hrabousky, 35, of New Street, was sentenced on 12 related charges stemming from the assaults that occurred over a number of years. “Sitting before you is a monster,” Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts told Luzerne County Senior Judge Hugh Mundy. “(Hrabousky) committed one of the most horrific acts … other than homicide.” Prosecutors say Hrabousky began assaulting the girls when they were 5 and 6 years old until the time they were teenagers. The older girl is now 15, Roberts said. Hrabousky pleaded guilty in December to two counts of child pornography, one count of aggravated indecent assault of a child, one count of incest, three counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and five counts of indecent assault. Mundy said that he intended to make sure Hrabousky would not have a chance to commit similar crimes for an extended period of time. “The crimes are heinous,” Mundy said. Hrabousky’s attorney, Thomas Cometa, argued his client took responsibility for his actions by

pleading guilty and should have received a15-to-30-year sentence. Cometa called psychologist William F. Anzalone Jr., who said the father of five suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, severe depression and pedophilia. A state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board member, Paula Brust, testified Hrabousky meets the criteria of a sexually violent predator, and he was deemed so by Mundy. Hrabousky must register his address under Megan’s Law for his entire life and also received two years probation upon his release from prison. According to court papers, two teenage girls separately told investigators in July that Hrabousky began sexually assaulting them when they were between 5 and 8 years old. The assaults continued through the years until the girls became teenagers. Hrabousky initially denied he sexually assaulted the girls, but later admitted he did. He claimed he suffered a nervous breakdown when a relationship with a woman ended in 2000, according to court records. Police said in the criminal complaint that Hrabousky said he sexually assaulted the one girl because the child’s appearance reminded him of his ex-girlfriend. Police said Hrabousky performed acts on the girls throughout the years on several occasions, and the acts stopped when one of the girls told her mother.

OSTERHOUT FREE LIBRARY

Sara Hansen says she wants to relocate back to her native state

Library director headed to N.J. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Three years after its last search for an executive director, the Osterhout Free Library has begun another one. Sara D. Hansen, 39, has taken a job as director of the Old Bridge Public Library in Old Bridge, N.J. She said it came down to her wanting to relocate her family back to New Jersey, where she grew up and where she still has family. Her husband and two children, a 13-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son, are still living in Mountain Top while she’s living with family in New Jersey and coming to Luzerne County on the weekends. Hansen handed in her resignation on Feb. 15, just minutes after the library’s

Area woman charged with heroin sale

board voted 9-4, with one abstention, to approve a plan proposed by the neighboring Westmoreland Club. The plan called for the removal of three trees and laying brickHansen shaped concrete pavers over a 50-by-100-foot grassy area between the two South Franklin Street buildings. Work has since been completed. Hansen spoke out against the plan, saying at the time, “I feel we need more grass on the lawn.” She said children’s programs rely on the lawn and having the children walking elsewhere to find a lawn large enough to hold activities in the city would put the youth and staff

members at risk. On Wednesday, Hansen said she was disappointed with the project, but it was not her reason for leaving. “It had nothing to do with it,” Hansen said. Her leaving was not expected but understood by some board members. Lillian Cohen, one of the four board members who voted against the plan, said she was sorry to see Hansen go but understood her decision. She said that while the timing of the resignation might be viewed with a skeptical eye, it was family, not the board’s vote, that drove her to make her decision. “The timing just happened to be that,” Cohen said. “It was not the lawn.” The Rev. Daniel C. Gunn, the lone board member to abstain in the Westmo-

reland Club vote, said that he was “quite fond” of Hansen and the work she has done in the three years since she arrived from the Lakewood Branch of the Ocean County Library System in Red Bank, N.J. Christopher Kelly, the library’s development director, has been tabbed to fill the directorship on an interim basis until a successor for Hansen is found. Kelly said the new hire will also wear two other hats – administrator of the Luzerne County Library System, which has 10 libraries, and director of the library district that includes those10 plus the library in White Haven. Cohen said she hopes a new hire will be made by September. Messages left with several other board members were not immediately returned on Wednesday.

Ruling goes against Powell

A federal judge has ruled an insurance company no longer has to defend attorney Robert Powell in the “kids for cash” lawsuits that have been filed against him and others. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo on March 31 ruled that the Alea London insurance company has no obligation to defend Powell or pay any damages that may be awarded against him based on an exclusion within the policy for knowing or intentional acts. Powell is among numerous defendants Powell who remain in several federal lawsuits that were filed on behalf of hundreds of juveniles who alleged they were wrongly incarcerated in juvenile detention facilities, including the PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care centers that were once co-owned by Powell. Specific allegations in each of the suits vary, but each allege Powell conspired with former judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan to increase the number of juveniles who were incarcerated and thus the profits at Powell’s centers. The decision is one of several rulings that have been issued in favor of insurance companies that have sought to deny coverage to Powell and real estate developer who built the centers, Robert Mericle, who is also a defendant in the cases.

Toole case lawyers to meet

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

KINGSTON – A woman free on bail on charges she sold heroin earlier this year was arrested Tuesday on similar allegations. Renee Andrea Morinelli, 49, of Schuyler Avenue, Kingston, was arraigned by District Judge Paul Roberts after she allegedly delivered heroin during a controlled drug buy investigation by Kingston police and the state Office of Attorney General’s Luzerne County Drug Task Force. Authorities allege Morinelli delivered heroin on Saturday. Morinelli was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and one count each of Morinelli possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of communication facility and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail. Morinelli had been free on $20,000 unsecured bail on similar charges filed by the same authorities in February. In those cases, authorities arranged to buy heroin from Morinelli and agreed to meet her in the parking lot at the Wyoming Valley Mall on Jan. 26. She also delivered heroin at an undisclosed location in Wilkes-Barre on Feb.1, according to arrest records. Morinelli was being watched by authorities when she allegedly sold heroin outside a shopping area in Wilkes-Barre and again on Saturday, arrest records say. When Morinelli was under surveillance on Feb. 24, authorities spotted a Dodge Avenger parked nearby and a passenger, identified as Michael Chance, get out and walk into her apartment. The driver, who was not charged, traveled around the block so as not to raise neighbors’ suspicion. He parked in front of Morinelli’s apartment and picked up Chance, who was inside the apartment for about two minutes, arrest records say. Authorities followed the vehicle to Wyoming Avenue and Market Street, where it stopped. A search of the vehicle turned up 10 heroin packets, which Chance allegedly purchased from Morinelli inside her apartment, according to arrest records. Morinelli’s apartment is in a school zone. Under state law, anyone convicted of selling illegal drugs within 1,000 feet of a school faces a mandatory two-year prison sentence. Morinelli previously served a two-year state prison sentence from June 2006 to June 2008, according to the state Department of Corrections, on burglary and drug convictions in Luzerne County Court. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 13 before Roberts.

U.S. District Judge Richard P. Conaboy has scheduled a conference with attorneys involved in the Michael Toole case to discuss the media’s request to release letters written on behalf of Toole. Conaboy directed attorneys to appear in his chambers at 2:30 p.m. today to discuss a motion filed by attorney Michael Toole Genello on behalf of WNEP-TV. Genello wrote to Conaboy in March seeking the disclosure of 156 letters that were received relating to Toole’s sentencing on Friday on a corruption charge. The Times Leader, through its attorney, Ralph Kates, filed a motion on Wednesday seeking to intervene in the case. Toole’s attorney, Frank Nocito, has objected to the release of the letters, arguing they contain private, family information. Nocito on Wednesday filed court papers that ask, should Conaboy determine the letters are public information, to allow the defense to review them first and submit suggestions for redactions.

Leaders blast Quran burning

Barack Obama and Afghan P resident President Hamid Karzai have de-

cried the Quran burning by a Florida minister last month and condemned the riot that ensued and left seven U.N. workers dead in the city of Mazar-iSharif. In a teleconference Wednesday, the two leaders said the attack was an affront to human decency and dignity. During the one one-hour call, Obama also welcomed Karzai’s announcement last month that his nation’s security forces would begin taking over from the U.S.-led coalition in seven parts of the country. Such Afghan lead is a first step toward his goal of having Afghan police and soldiers in charge by the end of 2014 so foreign combat troops can go home. NEW YORK

Fox gives Beck the boot Glenn Beck’s talk show is being dropped by the Fox News Channel after sinking in the ratings and suffering financially due to an advertiser boycott. Fox and Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts, said Wednesday they will stay in business creating other projects for Fox television and digital, starting with some documentaries Beck is preparing. Beck was a quick burn on Fox News Channel. Almost immediately after joining the network in January 2009, he doubled the ratings at his afternoon time slot. He was popular with Tea Party activists and drew thousands of people to the National Mall in Washington last August for a "restoring honor" rally. ORLANDO, FLA.

Greaves authored “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A ChildLover’s Code of Conduct,” a book that was sold on Amazon.com until last year, when the company stopped selling the item after national outrage.

WASHINGTON — Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi appealed directly to President Barack Obama on Wednesday to end what Gadhafi called "an unjust war," and he wished Obama good luck in his bid for re-election next year. “You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action,” Gadhafi wrote in a rambling, three-page letter to Obama obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday. “I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.” The White House confirmed the letter, but top officials shrugged it off. "I don’t think there is any mystery about what is expected from Mr. Gadhafi at this time," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said, repeating

U.S. and allied demands that Gadhafi’s forces pull back and cease attacks. Rebels and pro-government forces waged nearly stalemate battles in Libya, while a former U.S. lawmaker made an unendorsed private trip to Tripoli to try to convince Gadhafi to step down. An Obama administration envoy continued meeting with Libyan opposition figures in the rebel-held city of Benghazi, with no decision on whether to increase U.S. help for the rebels seeking Gadhafi’s ouster. The letter was sent to the State Department and forwarded immediately to the White House. Gadhafi implored Obama to stop the NATO-led air campaign, which he called an "unjust war against a small people of a developing country." “To serving world peace ... Friendship between our peoples ... and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato (NATO) off the Libyan affair for good,” Gadhafi wrote in the letter. “I am sure that you are able to shoul-

Averting blasts Japan’s new focus Nitrogen injected into nuke reactors to prevent blasts as cooling water creates hydrogen build-up.

TOKYO — After notching a rare victory by stopping highly radioactive water from flowing into the Pacific on Wednesday, workers at Japan’s flooded nuclear power complex turned to their next task: injecting nitrogen to prevent more hydrogen explosions. Nuclear officials said there was no immediate threat of explosions like the three that rocked the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant not long after a massive tsunami hit on “We are March 11, but their currently plans are a reminder of how much work reconsulting mains to stabilize the complex. with exWorkers are racing to perts so cool the plant’s reactors, which have been that we overheating since powcan come er was knocked out by 9.0-magnitude up with a the earthquake and tsunaclear safe- mi that killed as many as 25,000 people and ty standestroyed hundreds of dard.” miles of coastline.

Superheated fuel rods can pull explosive hydrogen from cooling water, so now that more water is going into the reactors, the concern is that hydrogen levels are rising. Technicians began pumping nitrogen into an area around one of the plant’s six reactors Thursday to counteract the hydrogen, said Makoto Watanabe, a spokesman for Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. They want to prevent hydrogen explosions that could spew radiation and damage the reactors. The nitrogen pumping also has risks, but the nuclear agency approved it as a

necessary measure to avoid danger, spokesman Hidehiko Nishiyama said. The injection could release radioactive vapor into the environment, but residents within 12 miles of the plant have been evacuated. The government said Wednesday it might consider expanding that zone, though not because of the nitrogen injection. An expansion might not necessarily mean the radiation that has been spewing into the air and water from the plant is getting worse. The effects of radiation are determined by both the strength of the dose and the length of exposure, so the concern is that people farther away

might start being affected as the crisis drags on. “I would imagine residents in areas facing a possibility for long-term exposure are extremely worried,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said. “We are currently consulting with experts so that we can come up with a clear safety standard.” Edano did not say how far the zone might be expanded or how many people might be affected. Tens of thousands have been living in shelters since the tsunami, either because they lost their homes or are in the evacuation zone or both.

WASHINGTON — A new, ultra-fast wireless Internet network is threatening to overpower GPS signals across the U.S. and interfere with everything from airplanes to police cars to consumer navigation devices. The problem stems from a recent government decision to let a Virginia company called LightSquared build a nationwide broadband network using airwaves next to those used for GPS. Manufacturers of GPS equipment warn that strong signals from the planned network could jam existing systems. A technical fix could cost billions and there’s no agreement on who should pay. Government officials pledge to block LightSquared from turning on its network as scheduled this year unless they receive assurances that GPS systems will still work. The stakes are high not only for the GPS industry and its users, but also for those who would use LightSquared’s network. In approving it, the Federal Communications Commission seeks to boost wireless competition and bring faster and cheaper Internet connections to all Americans — even in remote areas. LightSquared and the FCC both insist the new network can co-exist with GPS systems. But device makers fear GPS signals will suffer the way a radio station can get drowned out by a stronger broadcast in a nearby channel.

Penmanship boy inspires

A 10-year-old boy who earned a spot in a national penmanship contest despite being born without hands and lower arms is in a league of his own. Nicholas Maxim, a fifth-grader at Readfield Elementary School who writes by holding a pencil between his arms, impressed judges at a national penmanship contest enough that they created a new category for students with disabilities. Maxim received the first Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellent Penmanship this week at a school assembly. Judges who sifted through 200,000 handwriting entries in the annual contest run by Columbus, Ohio-based schoolbook publisher Zaner-Bloser said the new category would inspire others. Maxim, who said he likes writing and illustrating comic strips, didn’t know his paper had even been submitted to the contest, so Monday’s school assembly in his honor came as a surprise.

Soldiers loyal to Alassane Ouattara wait at a checkpoint at one of the principal entrances to Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on Wednesday.

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — Heavy arms fire rang out Wednesday near the home of the country’s strongman who remained holed up in a subterranean bunker, as forces backing his rival assaulted the residence to try to force him out, diplomats and witnesses said. Forces protecting Laurent Gbagbo appeared to rally Wednesday night, pushing back the armed group fighting to install democratically elected president Alassane Ouattara. Gbagbo has suffered debilitating losses in the past two days. United Nations Mi-24 helicopters attacked

and destroyed his arms depots on Monday. On Tuesday, his soldiers were seen abandoning their posts across the city, some rushing inside a church to tear off their uniforms and dump their weapons before discreetly exiting in civilian clothes. A spokeswoman for Ouattara said earlier on France-24 television that the forces would eventually succeed in forcing out the leader who has refused to cede power after losing a November election. “At the current moment they have not yet captured Gbagbo but it will happen soon,” Affoussy Bamba said by telephone from Abidjan.

The Esseffs took time recently to be interviewed via teleconference. They talked about their lives. And they talked of WilkesBarre – a “booming town back then,” the monsignor said. “Wilkes-Barre grounded us in real living,” John Esseff said. He said George was born in 1929. “I tell him he caused the stock market crash,” John quipped. Both said Wilkes-Barre helped mold their character. The Esseff brothers appear to have traveled different paths. According to the information provided, George became a successful scientist, entrepreneur and philanthropist with a wife, children and grandchildren; John became a priest whose life has been spent mostly with the poor. But on their separate journeys, the brothers remained intertwined, and their lives – both rooted in faith – have been devoted to helping those in need. With the help of Ellen Franco, the Esseffs have put their lives in book form. “Brothers & Fathers” details the experiences of these two men, from their beginnings on Prospect Street and later Moyallen Street. The Esseffs publicly will discuss the book and their lives April 13 at King’s College. The brochure announcing their appearance states: “Their shared life story takes us from John’s survival of a plane crash while working with the poor in South America to the violence of Beirut, where he witnessed kidnapping and murder while serving as the director of Pope John Paul’s mission there. Meanwhile, George was blazing trails in the titanium industry and building an empire that stretched from the U.S. to Japan to Europe, leading him from business meetings in

Tokyo to being locked in a Soviet jail.” John Esseff, 82, worked with Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and George, 81, built a fortune by securing patents for processing titanium. “We are very similar,” Monsignor Esseff said. “George married and had children. The Church is my spouse and my children, in a spiritual sense, are all over the M E E T T H E E S S E F F S world.” Foundation at work George has joined his brother in helping those in need. He established the Esseff Foundation in 1979 in honor of his late grandfather – also named George Esseff. To fund the foundation, George divested himself of most of his wealth. He did keep enough for him and his wife, Rosemary, to live on, and he took care of his children. “My grandfather was a huckster who had a horse and wagon,” George Esseff said. “He collected rags, scrap and metal and he sold vegetables in the summer. He was a tremendous example to us.” According to the foundation’s website, the foundation is non-political and dedicated to relieving the sufferings of the poor, both here in the United States and around the world. George Esseff runs the foundation, and he said that upon his death, his son will take over. The Esseffs, a Lebanese family, remembered their grandfather’s store where he sold produce. He kept two jars – one for the family’s money and the other for the poor. “Tuesdays were for the poor,” the monsignor said. “Even if it was the busiest day, Tuesday’s money went to the poor.” George said his grandfather

Monsignor John Esseff and his brother, George Esseff, will offer their recollections on growing up in Wilkes-Barre and how that experience shaped their lives. They will be joined by Ellen Franco, author of the book about the Esseffs – “Brothers & Fathers.” The event, hosted by Kathy McLaughlin Coslett, is set for April 13, at 7 p.m. in the Burke Auditorium, McGowan Hall, on the campus of King’s College.

Australian Veterinarian Reveals...

How to Get Rid of Your Dog’s Aching Joints in Just 7-Days!

Australian dog remedy gives new life to dogs plagued by joint discomfort! Veterinarians and pet lovers rejoice! By Alyssa Hanwex Health & Science Freelancer Melbourne: Heidi, a 8-year old Shepherd mix, was in bad shape. She was dragging her hind legs when she walked. And every day it seemed harder and harder for her to get around. It was tough to watch… Heidi was in such obvious discomfort; the vet was convinced the dog’s days were numbered. But then a miracle happened. Her owner read about DGP, an Australian joint discovery for dogs; and decided to give it a try. The package arrived in just a few short days, what happened next was astonishing…

In less than a week, Heidi began moving freely, happily going for walks and even chasing birds again!

“She’s got her old spirit back! I’m extremely grateful. DGP turned my dog’s life around!”

If It Helps Million-Dollar Racehorses, Why Not Your Dog’s Aching Joints? The discovery of DGP began in Melbourne, Australia; where a well known veterinarian, Dr. Kim McKellar, had an idea. Since he had overwhelming success with a formula for racehorses with joint problems; he thought, why not dogs? And since so many dogs experience dangerous side effects with conventional drugs, McKellar knew he was on to something big. He asked scientists and herbalists to tweak the racehorse joint formula and make it suitable for dogs. Dr. McKellar decided to test it on his own dog, Samson, a 13-year old black lab. The dog was in constant agony. He didn’t move very much… and would let out a loud yelp every time he tried to get up off the floor. It was heartbreaking. So McKellar began giving his first “patient”, Samson, the new formula. It worked!

Run Mom's photo for Mother's Day with a new look, including bigger photos!

Samson’s Joint Problems Vanish! Within just a few days, Samson showed stunning improvement. And in less than two weeks McKellar said he was like “a young dog again!” Samson rejoined the family, started going on walks again, even bouncing and wagging his tail! Dr. McKellar was ecstatic. Not only was he able to save his own dog, but he could now help millions of other dogs live life without joint problems too.

Pa. House GOP wants more natural gas buses, trucks The plan use state money to encourage conversion of public and private fleets. By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — With the state House of Representatives now under GOP control, Republican lawmakers said Wednesday they are renewing their push for a package of bills designed to take advantage of Pennsylvania’s booming natural gas drilling industry by getting more naturalgas powered buses and trucks onto the state’s roads. The plan would move $47.5 million in state money into tax credits, grants and loans aimed at encouraging transit authorities, school districts, local governments and private businesses to convert their fleets to natural gas-powered vehicles. It also would eventually require transit authorities in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Allentown to buy strictly naturalgas powered vehicles by the year 2027 and provide tax credits to encourage the construction of natural gas fueling stations along most of Pennsylvania’s interstate highways. Supporters say using more of the homegrown gas from the Marcellus Shale formation will mean fuel savings, cleaner air and freedom from Middle East oil. "If we are going to make the most of Marcellus Shale, we have to look beyond drilling," said Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, who spoke at a Capitol news conference with

House Republican lawmakers. "We can’t just drive our buses "We must not only extract the gas over to a truck stop to fuel up on here in Pennsylvania, we must diesel there." Compressed natural gas was use the gas here in Pennsylvania." The package is similar to one introduced by House Republicans in the last two-year legislative session. However, those bills didn’t gain traction in the then-Democratic-controlled chamber amid a debate over whether to impose a new tax on Pennsylvania’s booming natural gas industry. House Majority Whip Stan Saylor, R-York, said he hopes to get floor votes on the bills later this year, perhaps in the fall after the Legislature is finished with budget negotiations. As an example for natural gaspowered vehicles, Saylor and others pointed to the Centre Area Transportation Authority in State College. The authority’s 61 fixed-route buses all run on compressed natural gas, according to the authority’s 2009-10 fiscal year report. CATA’s general manager, Hugh Mose, said Wednesday that he believes the authority has saved money since 1996, when it began shifting its fleet to natural gas, while getting the satisfaction of improving air quality. Naturalgas powered buses are not as peppy as buses that use diesel and they are more complicated mechanically, which may frighten off other transit agencies, Mose said. CATA’s natural-gas fueling station is the only one in the area, and Mose said he worries about something happening to the station or a disruption in natural gas supply. "It’s not like diesel," he said.

going for the equivalent of $1.39 per gallon at a fueling station in Oklahoma last week, said David J. Spigelmyer of Chesapeake Ener-

gy Corp., an Oklahoma Citybased company that is one of the largest players in the Marcellus Shale.

Outside the Max Rosenn Federal Courthouse, Walsh told the Pottsville Republican and Herald he would become “a better person.” Walsh pleaded guilty to a civil rights violation in the 2008 beating death 25-year-old Luis Ramirez in Shenandoah. He also testified against two other teens at a pair of trials. Brandon Piekarsky and Derrick Donchak were acquitted of the most serious state charges against them by an all-white jury before being convicted of civil rights violations in a federal trial. Both were sentenced to nine years in prison.

Pennsylvania decides to seek high-speed rail funding originally bound for Florida Money sought to speed up the celed a high-speed rail project that had won $2.4 billion in travel of passenger trains federal aid. between Harrisburg and Philly. The deadline to apply was By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Florida’s loss could be Pennsylvania’s gain. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is seeking more federal money originally set aside for Florida so that it can speed up the travel of passenger trains between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, agency spokeswoman Erin Waters said Wednesday. The money became available when Florida’s governor can-

Monday. Two dozen states, plus Washington, D.C., and Amtrak, have asked for a piece of it. PennDOT wants to use $248 million of that money to cut travel times by 20 minutes on Amtrak’s Keystone Corridor East service, between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, by upgrading five switches, or interconnections, that were made for slower trains, Waters said. That would raise the top speed of the line to 125 miles per hour, up from 110 miles per hour currently. Travel time on the express

train would drop to 70 minutes from 90 minutes, and travel time on the regular trains would drop to 85 minutes from 105 minutes, Waters said. A record 1.27 million passengers used the Keystone Corridor East service during the 2009-10 fiscal year, Waters said. President Barack Obama wants to create a national network of high-speed trains in an effort to make fast trains accessible to 80 percent of Americans within 25 years. However, Pennsylvania’s record of winning large sums of money for high-speed rail from the Obama administration isn’t very good. In 2009, PennDOT applied

for more than $3 billion in federal high-speed rail money, including $490 million for the Keystone Corridor East, $400 million to restore passenger rail service between Scranton and Hoboken, N.J., and $2.3 billion to design and build a

magnetic levitation train line between Pittsburgh International Airport and downtown Pittsburgh. It won nearly $26 million to remove three vehicle-crossing points on the Keystone Corridor East stretch — that work is

Attorney Lenahan convinced the jury that Marworth,its medical director and nursing staff were negligent in the care of his client, a Heating and Air Conditioning repairman. "My client was a severe alcoholic and came to Marworth for help. In the less than 55 hours he spent there he managed to leave the facility several times while suffering from delirium tremors and hallucinations," said Lenahan. "We argued the facility did not meet acceptable standards of care in treating and keeping my client safe and the jury agreed." Attorney Joseph Lenahan

SYNTHETICS Continued from Page 1A

“Many of the users describe extreme paranoia,” said Dr. Mark Ryan, director of the Louisiana Poison Center. “The recurring theme is monsters, demons and aliens. A lot of them had suicidal thoughts.” The chemicals are suspected in at least nine U.S. deaths since last year, including that of Mike Rozga’s 18-year-old son, David, an athlete and band standout from Indianola. The young man got high last June on a marijuana look-alike product called “K2” and complained to a friend “that he felt like he was in hell,” his father said. Though the teen had never suffered from depression, he went home, found a shotgun and killed himself. “These kids weren’t looking for anything bad to happen,” Mike Rozga said. “The truth is they didn’t know what they had gotten themselves into.” The recent surge in activity has not gone unnoticed by authorities. The Drug Enforcement Administration recently used emergency powers to outlaw five chemicals found in synthetic pot, placing them in the same category as heroin and cocaine. But manufacturers are quick to adapt, often cranking out new formulas that are only a single molecule apart from the illegal ones. Recreational drugs created in the laboratory have been around at least since the middle of the 20th century, when LSD was first studied. But these latest examples emerged only a few years ago, starting in Europe. The products were typically made in China, India and other Asian nations and soon arrived in Britain and Germany, according to DEA spokesman Rusty Payne. In the United States, fake marijuana was last year’s big seller, marketed under brands such as “K2” or “Spice.” This year, the trend is “bath salts” with names like “Purple Wave” and “Bliss.” Besides being cheap and easily obtained, they do not show up in common drug tests. Synthetic marijuana typically involves dried plant material sprayed with one of several chemical compounds, most of which were created by a Clemson University scientist for research purposes in the 1990s. The compounds were never tested on humans. It’s packaged to look like pot, and users typically smoke it, but experts say the high is more comparable to cocaine or LSD. The bath salts are not watersoftening products at all but crystallized chemicals that are snorted, swallowed or smoked. They contain two powerful stimulants: methylenedioxypyrovalerone (or MDPV) and mephedrone, which mimic cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine. So far in 2011, poison control centers have received nearly 1,300 calls about synthetic pot, compared with 2,874 calls for all of last year, according to the poison control center data. Poison calls for bath salts rose at an even greater rate. The centers took 301 calls in all of 2010, but had more than 1,400 for the first three months of 2011. Most of the calls came from doctors and nurses reporting patients in emergency rooms. “The problem is really exploding here,” said Dr. Elizabeth Scharman, director of the West Virginia Poison Center. Her state had three cases of bath-salt poisoning in December. “We’ve had 131 cases since Jan. 1,” and one-third of those were within the past two weeks, she said late last month. A law banning bath salts and synthetic marijuana was signed Tuesday by acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. Physicians generally treat the overdoses with anti-anxiety medication such as Valium and Xanax, which ease the frenetic, drugfueled activity in the brain and body. “They cut back on the hallucinations, slow the heart rate, lower the blood pressure. It can take large doses. It can take repeated doses,” Scharman said. In some patients, symptoms can last for days. “One described it as like being on cocaine, but 10 times worse,” said Anna Rouse Dulaney of the Carolinas Poison Center in Charlotte, N.C. DEA agent Gary Boggs said us-

ers assume that the products are safe because they are available in stores, even though they are typically labeled “not for human consumption.” “These products are in an unregulated, unlicensed industry,” Boggs said. “No one knows the strength of the ingredients. You don’t know what you’re taking.” In addition to the DEA’s recently adopted ban, a federal law allows for prosecution of “analogue” drugs that mimic the effects of illegal substances. But authorities acknowledge the challenge of stopping the drugs’ spread. DEA experts are evaluating as many as 50 new synthetics. “The possibilities are endless,” Boggs said. “There’s probably hundreds of formulations out there.” At least 20 states have banned chemicals found in fake marijuana, according to a report from the

N

E

National Conference of State Legislatures compiled for the AP. Most others, including Pennsylvania, have legislation pending. At least nine states have banned substances found in bath salts, and 25, again including Pennsylvania, have laws in the works. Lawmakers know they’re fighting an uphill battle. “These chemists are pretty sophisticated and creative and are going to stay one step ahead of us, I’m afraid,” said Kentucky state Rep. John Tilley, a Democrat who sponsored his state’s ban on druginfused bath salts. Some head shop owners see all the alarm as an overreaction. In Des Moines, Iowa, near Drake University, the Day Dreams shop has found the synthetic marijuana “Spice” to be a proven money-maker. Along with incense, hippie clothing and drug paraphernalia, the store has sold thousands of packets of the crumbly, brownish-

Contrary to DEA claims that the product is most popular among teens and college-age customers, co-owner Kathy Fiedler said two-thirds of her buyers are middle-aged. “I even have grandmothers coming in,” said Fiedler, 56. If Iowa lawmakers adopt a ban, she said, they risk opening the door to shady backroom chemists crafting far more dangerous things. Reports of misuse are widespread. In Kentucky, authorities say a young woman driving on a highway after using bath salts became convinced her 2-year-old was a deAP FILE PHOTO mon.

Doing the Curly Shuffle in southern Luzerne County NEWS ITEM: Hazleton police might move to former bank building. Interesting. Join me as I set the Wayback machine for 1995 … Joe Zola wins the district justice seat that hears cases in a room in Hazleton City Hall. Zola keeps a promise made during the campaign and moves the court to a roomier former federal building on Broad Street. It has a real courtroom, it has parking, it’s downtown, it’s perfect, he tells us. Luzerne County joins him, creating a southern annex with county offices in the same building. Mike Marsicano, meanwhile, has won the election as Hazleton mayor, and he quickly spends thousands on no-bid work converting the former district justice office to swanky police quarters with custom-made wood lockers. A law and order proponent, Marsicano insists the cops deserve the upgrade. Coincidentally, a company owned by Zola’s brother gets a $7,208 contract to remodel his new digs, while a close friend of Marsicano gets the contract to create the new cop shop in City Hall. But of course, they were the best qualified with the lowest cost proposals, right? Let’s reset the Wayback to 2005. Citing alleged fears of unhealthy mold in the for-

t every level of government, the will of the people apparently continues to be ignored!

Following eight months of pleading and packed meetings, including a town hall meeting called by the people to have the ordinance explained by Ben Price of the Community Environment Legal Defense Fund, council unanimously voted down the only ordinance that can protect our community. Council’s answer is to zone it. Zoning applies only to surface lands and will simply tell the gas industry where in our community it can drill. You cannot zone the horizontal fracking below the surface, which goes in any direction for thousands of feet.

trally located between the well site and the interstate pipeline to avoid building future compressor stations in the event more gathering lines need to be constructed. The metering facility planned will feature a metering building, a 100-foot communications tower, two 3,000-gallon tanks of the odorant mercaptan, various pipes and valves and condensate tanks to collect mostly water from the natural gas. Location controversy The proposed 2-acre metering site has been the center of controversy, as it is about 1,800 feet from the Dallas School District campus. Chief Gathering LLC also submitted plans to build a metering station about 500 feet from the Williams site. A zoning board hearing held Monday for Chief’s special exceptions application drew hundreds into the Dallas Middle School auditorium. Savage said the site was chosen for the Williams project based on a few key factors, including land acquisition, distance from the well site and the lay of the land itself. He said the site off Hildebrandt Road is the shortest distance from the Springville well site, the company was able to acquire pipeline easements in the area and its path, which weaves through wetlands and mountains, was optimal in terms of population and terrain. “Yeah, it could have been 50 miles to the west, but that means you’re building another 50 miles of pipeline over there (and) it’s more than $1 million a mile of pipeline,” said Savage. “What you do is, you try to figure out where you can build one of these meter sites, where you can acquire the property, where it works with on the pipeline, so that’s an integral process we go through.” He said that while the company

lon, according to AAA and other sources. Obama’s visit to Gamesa was his fourth energy event since March 11. He’s scheduled a fifth for Friday in Indianapolis. Obama argues that shifting to cleaner and domestic energy sources will help create jobs and boost U.S. competitiveness. Education is another item on Obama’s competitiveness agenda. That issue was to be the focus of a speech he was giving later Wednesday to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s civil rights group in New York City. Obama’s appearance keeps a promise he made to the National Action Network when he spoke there as a presidential candidate in 2007. Obama pledged to return, win or lose. He returns just two days after

launching his re-election bid. He is facing a key constituency that at times has scolded him for not being attentive enough to certain issues, such as double-digit black unemployment, but continues to hold him in high regard. Obama deflects such criticism by arguing that his polices to expand the economy, create jobs and improve the education system, among other goals, will help the country as a whole, blacks included. Ninety-five percent of blacks who voted, opted for Obama in 2008. A Gallup poll released last week showed his job approval among blacks holding at 84 percent, about the same as six months earlier.

WASHINGTON — Time growing short, Congress’ leaders reported making headway Wednesday in talks to cut spending and avert a partial government shutdown that the White House warned would hit U.S. combat troops abroad and taxpayer refunds from the IRS at home. President Barack Obama checked in separately by phone with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., then invited the two men to the White House for an evening meeting. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama decided to call the session after concluding not enough progress had been made during the day, and the president blamed business as usual in the nation’s capital politics for the deadlock that threatened disruptions beginning Friday at midnight. “I do not want to see Washington politics stand in the way of America’s progress,” he said in Fairless Hills, Pa. Democratic officials suggested their side had agreed to consider additional cuts in the previous 24 hours. But any movement took place in secret, while the public maneuvering was on public display. Determined to avoid political blame if a shutdown occurs, Boehner said the House would

did not anticipate a problem with its location near the Dallas schools, he said people always have questions and the company has been proactive in providing accurate information to the community. Pipeline safety The Springville line will tap into the Transco pipeline, which was originally constructed in 1958. Michael Dickinson, manager of operations and technical services, said a third-party company will perform what is called a “hot tap,” essentially welding the two lines together while keeping pipeline pressure controlled. Transco pipeline spokesman Chris Stockton, who was not at the conference, said many sections of the interstate pipeline may have been replaced over the years, but age isn’t the most important factor in pipeline safety. “Steel doesn’t age,” he said. “If you pull a piece of pipe from the ground installed in 1950s, (and) if it has the right coating, you can’t tell the difference. What we want to do make sure that the systems we have in place prevent the pipe from corroding.”

He decided to run this year, he said, because he felt it’s the “right time,” because the county judiciary is at a crossroads and voters have a heavy task in electing six new judges. If elected, Pierantoni said, he would urge citizens to come to the courthouse to watch court proceedings, since most are open to the public. Pierantoni would promote settlements in the hundreds of civil cases that are on backlog or schedule a trial promptly, and have open meetings to discuss how to expedite criminal matters.

The endorsement board also discussed with Pierantoni an article that appeared in a local newspaper regarding his father’s service as a constable in Pittston city. Pierantoni said his father, Fred, has been a part-time elected constable for 30 years and is not a member of his staff, even though his office distributes his pay. Pierantoni said his father is the only certified constable who serves his district, although other constables do work within the district when needed. The elder Pierantoni is not paid from the district judge’s office, but from money garnered when papers are served. Pierantoni said his father has never had to appear before him for a hearing, but if he had to, he would recuse himself.

Montero, considered to be the Yankees’ top prospect, was nearly traded to Seattle for pitcher Cliff Lee last season before the Mariners pulled out and dealt Lee to Texas.

way out through trades. There are a couple ways to look at that. The New York Yankees never seem to see opportunity for their youth. Or their young stars are so coveted, other organizations can’t wait to get their uniforms on them. Either way, that’s certainly not the intention. “Our first priority is to sign and develop (minor league) players for the Yankees and to help us win championships,” said Mark Newman, New York’s senior vice president of baseball operations, who runs the Yankees minor league system.

But Newman admits a byproduct of the system’s philosophy is to create bargaining chips to trade away for established big-league talent. “Guys who can help us make trades,” Newman said. “That’s all part of the job.” Oh, the Yankees will tell you they’re doing a great job promoting players. Their current starting pitchers Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova came through Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on their way to New York. So did relievers Joba Chamberlain and

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Winless Rays fall to Harren, Angels The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The winless Tampa Bay Rays lost again Wednesday when Dan Haren and the Los Angeles Angels shut down the AL East champions 5-1. The Rays fell to 0-5. In four of those games, they finished with exactly one run and four hits. Rookie Jeremy Hellickson (0-1) lost despite striking out 10 in 5 2-3 innings. Tampa Bay designated hitter Manny Ramirez, who has one hit in 17 at-bats this season, was out of the starting lineup. He flied out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning and will miss Thursday’s game at the Chicago White Sox while tending to a personal matter. Rays left fielder Johnny Damon replaced Ramirez as the DH. Damon went 0 for 4 with a strikeout, and is 1 for 15 this year. White Sox 10, Royals 7

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Carlos Quentin and the Chicago White Sox pulled off a two-out rally in the ninth inning off Kansas City closer Joakim Soria, then Brent Morel hit a go-ahead single in the 12th that beat the Royals 10-7 Wednesday. The surprising Royals were in position to improve to 5-1 after Soria retired the first two batters in the ninth with a 6-3 lead. But Alex Rios and Paul Konerko hit RBI singles and Quentin’s two-run double capped a four-run comeback for a 7-6 edge. Rangers 7, Mariners 3

ARLINGTON, Texas — Mitch Moreland hit a tiebreaking double off Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez and the Texas Rangers remained unbeaten, defeating the Seattle Mariners. The AL champion Rangers

are 6-0 for the first time since 1996, when they set a team record by winning their first seven games. Texas has a day off Thursday before starting its first road trip of the season Friday in Baltimore. Tigers 7, Orioles 3

Crestwood volleyball standout Kayla Jeckell has made a verbal commitment to attend St. Francis University, a Division I school located in Loretto, Pa. Jeckell said Wednesday she will receive a partial athletic scholarship to St. Francis, where she will major in elementary education and psychology. “Actually, when I went down to visit the school, it was an amazing experience,” Jeckell said. “I was really impressed with the coach, Charles Mullen. He’s the type of coach I was looking for. He knows how to push a team and get the best out of his players.” College-bound volleyball players can sign a binding letter of intent beginning on April 13. Jeckell, 17, earned all-state honors as a senior at Crestwood. She led the Comets to a 13-3 regular season record and a runnerup finish to Holy Redeemer in the District 2 Class 3A playoffs. Jeckell was named the WVC Player of the Year by The Times Leader, and made The Times Leader’s all-star team for three

MASTERS Continued from Page 1B

To show how much he’s ready, Mickelson poured in 18 birdies last weekend to win the Houston Open. And when he arrived at the Masters, one of the first visits he made was to a back specialist. “This week is the one week where I swing the absolute hardest,” Mickelson said. “I’ve been working out for it. I saw a back specialist just to make sure that my back hangs in there. It feels terrific, but I’ve been working on it for some time to make sure it’s strong enough to withstand the rotational speed that I’m going to be trying to apply this week. Because it’s a big advantage if you can move it out there.” Woods, no longer the betting favorite at Augusta for the first time since 1999, is more concerned with a shorter club — his putter. It has kept him from winning the Masters twice in the last four years, and kept him from contending since his return to golf a year ago. Even so, they remain the two dominant forces. “The Masters will always start with Tiger and Phil,” said Robert Allenby, who will play with Woods the first two rounds. “Their record here and the way they play Augusta make them the two to beat.” The difference this year: They have some company. PGA champion Martin Kaymer is No. 1 in the world and will try to win his second straight major. He considers the favorite to be Luke Donald, who beat Kaymer in the Match Play Championship earlier this year. Then there’s Westwood, who has been no worse than third in four of the last five majors. Throw in the likes of Dustin Johnson, Nick Watney, Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey, and the smallest field of any major suddenly has a long list of contenders. Some of that is a new generation arriving. Some of that is Woods no longer standing in their way. “In the past, a lot of guys used up a lot of energy thinking about Tiger and what he’s doing. Now they’re doing their own thing and thinking about what they’re needing to do,” Faldo said. “There’s genuinely 20 guys who could win this. I’m hoping we have a dozen guys coming down the back nine Sunday with a shot.” What had been considered a wide open Masters became slightly more narrow with Mickelson’s win last week in Houston. And while Woods has gone 17 months without a win, Nicklaus won’t rule him out. “They both are going to play well,” Nicklaus said. “But there

consecutive years. Last season, the 5-foot-10 Jeckell posted 217 kills, 43 blocks, 130 service points Jeckell and 66 aces. She capped off her high school career with 675 kills, 157 blocks, 311 digs 416 service points. “Coach Mullen made me feel very comfortable at the school,” Jeckell said. “The team graduates three seniors, so I will have a chance to play as a freshman.” The Red Flash play in the Northeast Conference, and finished 9-20 last season. “I love the atmosphere of the school, as well as the campus,” Jeckell said. “The town is beautiful and very rural. It’s a country school at the top of a mountain. It’s gorgeous.” She is the daughter of the daughter of Jeanne Jeckell and Joe Kubiski, of Mountain Top. Jeckell is currently playing AAU volleyball for the Emerald Isle Elite team, based in Scranton. The squad that will participate in a Northeast qualifier this month in Baltimore.

are other guys who will do the same.” The names he mentioned all had one trait — they hit the ball high and long, always a good combination at Augusta. But with a forecast for sunshine the rest of the week, which will make the course fast and firm and shorter than its 7,435 yards, there has been more talk about the short game than usual this week. “You don’t have to be a big hitter to win here,” Mickelson said. “If you’re short game isn’t sharp, you really need to strike it exceptionally well. I don’t know if it’s really possible, because the penalty for a slight miss-hit is in an area where you have be on your short game. So anybody — whether you are long or short — if you’re on your short game, you have a good chance.” Faldo mentioned Donald, who is one of a half-dozen players who can go to No. 1 with a win this week. Donald is at No. 4, and along with his win at the Match Play, he has finished out of the top 10 only twice over the last seven months. “I’ve never felt more confident coming in here,” Donald said. “I’ve prepared well. I’ve been very diligent in what I need to do. I’ve been hitting a lot of chips. Now I’ve just got to do it.” As always, that’s always the hard part at the Masters.

HIGH SCHOOL TRACK PREVIEW

WVC still hoping for clouds to break

Weather has limited season’s first two weeks By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

Like other spring sports, Northeastern Pennsylvania’s cocktail of unseasonable weather has impeded the start of the Wyoming Valley Conference track and field season. Several teams, particularly ones with cinder tracks, have struggled to practice outdoors. “This has been the hardest season so far,” Meyers coach Harlan Tabron said. “We haven’t had ideal conditions, but we’ve found creative ways to make do.” Through the first two weeks of the regular season, only six of 16 meets have been held, and most teams have seen limited exposure this spring. “We have maybe been out five times all month,” said Wyoming Area coach Joe Pizano. “We can’t throw because there’s snow. There was no scrimmage for the new kids to see how a meet is run. “I think that’s why all the kids aren’t as focused.” The Wyoming Valley Conference returns nine individual state qualifiers – six

Leading the pack is Coughlin senior hurdler Shelley Black, who returns to Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium this year in hopes of defending her PIAA titles in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles. Black is the returning PIAA Track Athlete of the Year and an indoor track All-American. On Feb. 5, the future Penn State hurdler finished in third place – one hundredth of a second out of first – in the 60 hurdles at the New Balance Grand Prix in New York. “She’s a talent. She’s one of those kids that when you go into coaching, you hope you come across,” Coughlin coach Paul McGrane said. “What she does off the track matches what she does on it.

NHL ROUNDUP

NBA ROUNDUP

Kovalchuk scores 30th; Devils win

Knicks defeat 76ers, take over 6th place

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — Ilya Kovalchuk scored his 30th goal and added an assist to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. Mattias Tedenby, Henrik Tallinder and Patrik Elias also scored for the Devils in the game that matched two teams that made desperate second-half playoff runs only to fall short. Martin Brodeur had 22 saves but had to sweat out the final minutes after Toronto got thirdperiod goals from Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak to make it close. Hurricanes 3, Red Wings 0 RALEIGH, N.C. — Cam Ward made 42 saves for his second shutout in a month, and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Detroit Red Wings to remain alive for a playoff spot. Jeff Skinner and Derek Joslin scored in the second period before Erik Cole scored in the third. The Hurricanes have won seven of nine to move to 89 points and remain in the hunt for just their second postseason berth since they won the 2006 Stanley Cup. They need some help to get there, with the clearest path requiring them to win both of their final two games while the New York Rangers, eighth with 91 points, lose one of their last two. Eric Staal added three assists to help Carolina beat Detroit for the first time since 2006. Jimmy Howard made 29 saves for the Central Division champion Red Wings, who lost star left winger Henrik Zetterberg to a lower-body injury. Capitals 5, Panthers 2 WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals’ power play is hitting its stride just in time for the playoffs, with Mike Knuble and Jason Chimera both scoring with the man advantage in a victory over the Florida Panthers. The win was the Capitals’ fourth straight and put them on the brink of clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the second year in a row. Washington can drop out of first place only if it loses in regulation to Florida on Saturday and if the Philadelphia Flyers win their last two games. Bruins 3, Islanders 2 BOSTON — Dennis Seidenberg and Gregory Campbell scored in a 78-second span in the second period and the Boston Bruins within two points of the second playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a victory over the New York Islanders. The Bruins, who have clinched the Northeast Division title, have 101 points. The Philadelphia Flyers, the Atlantic Division leaders who were idle Wednesday, have 103. Both teams have two regular-season games left. Blackhawks 4, Blues 3 CHICAGO — Jonathan Toews scored on a low shot from the left circle at 3:19 of overtime to give Chicago a victory over the St. Louis Blues and move the Blackhawks within two points of a clinching a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Toews beat Ty Conklin on the short side after taking a long lead pass from Duncan Keith and racing in with Blues defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo in close pursuit.

PHILADELPHIA — Carmelo Anthony had 31 points and 11 rebounds, Amare Stoudemire scored 18 points and the New York Knicks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 97-92 to move into sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Toney Douglas bailed out the Knicks after they blew a 19point lead and trailed by one late in the fourth. Douglas hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:47 left for a 90-88 advantage, then made two free throws with 42 seconds left for a four-point lead. Andre Iguodala pulled the Sixers within one with his first 3-pointer of the game. Anthony delivered with a big-time 3pointer and pounded his chest in celebration with a 95-91 lead. Magic 111, Bobcats 102 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points, and the Orlando Magic overcame Quentin Richardson’s ejection and Dwight Howard’s 18th technical foul to beat Charlotte in overtime and eliminate the Bobcats from playoff contention. Jameer Nelson atoned for two turnovers in the closing seconds of regulation by hitting a jumper and banking in a 3-pointer in Orlando’s 12-2 run to open the extra period. Brandon Bass added 19 points for the Magic, who secured their fourth consecutive 50-win season. Pacers 136, Wizards 112 INDIANAPOLIS — Danny Granger scored 25 points, and the Indiana Pacers clinched a

Pistons 116, Nets 109 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Richard Hamilton scored 25 points and Rodney Stuckey added 22 to lead the Detroit Pistons to a win over the New Jersey Nets. Brook Lopez scored a careerhigh 39 points for New Jersey, which was without star Deron Williams. The point guard was out with an injured right wrist. Lopez nearly made up for his absence, but the Nets settled for outside shots against Detroit’s zone defense late in the game. AP PHOTO

playoff spot for the first time since 2006 with a victory against the Washington Wizards. The Pacers needed a win and a Charlotte loss to Orlando to clinch a spot in the postseason. As the Pacers’ game ended, the Orlando-Charlotte game was in overtime, and the Conseco Fieldhouse staff put the game on the Jumbotron. Many fans stayed to cheer to the Magic on to a 111-102 win. Cavaliers 104, Raptors 96 TORONTO — J.J. Hickson scored 28 points to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a victory over the Toronto Raptors in a game between teams playing out the story lines on similar seasons. Jerryd Bayless scored 28 points for the Raptors (21-57),

who have four games left in their disappointing season. DeMar DeRozan added 19 points, while Reggie Evans had a season-high 15 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Sonny Weems finished with 17 points. Suns 108, Timberwolves 98 MINNEAPOLIS — Marcin Gortat scored 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and Aaron Brooks added 19 points to lead the Phoenix Suns to a victory that gave the Minnesota Timberwolves the worst record in the NBA. Minnesota has now lost 11 consecutive games and 22 of its past 26. Michael Beasley scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were playing again without the injured All-Star Kevin Love

Bucks 90, Heat 85 MIAMI — John Salmons scored 17 points, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute added 14 points and 12 rebounds, and even while being officially eliminated from postseason contention the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat. The loss knocked Miami (54-24) a half-game back of Boston in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. Carlos Delfino’s 3-pointer with 24 seconds left helped seal it for the Bucks, who got 14 points from Corey Maggette. Milwaukee was eliminated from playoff contention during the game, thanks to Indiana’s win over Washington. Thunder 112, Clippers 108 OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook added 26 and the Oklahoma City Thunder clinched the Northwest Division title by beating the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Thunder won the first division crown for the franchise since 2005, when they were known as the Seattle SuperSonics, but only after fending off a late charge from the Clippers. Hornets 101, Rockets 93 NEW ORLEANS — Chris Paul had 28 points and 10 assists, and the New Orleans Hornets clinched a playoff spot with a victory over the Houston Rockets. Trevor Ariza, acquired by the Hornets from Houston in an offseason trade, scored 19 for a second straight game and tied a season high with six steals. Spurs 124, Kings 92 SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili scored 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs moved to the brink of the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs with a victory over the Sacramento Kings. The Spurs improved their NBA-best record to 60-19 and can clinch home-court advantage throughout the West playoffs with their next victory or loss by the Los Angeles Lakers. Nuggets 104, Mavericks 96 DALLAS — J.R. Smith broke a tie in the final minutes with a layup and immediately followed with a jumper, lifting the Denver Nuggets to a victory over the struggling and short-handed Dallas Mavericks. Smith scored 23 points, seven after Dallas tied it at 94 with 2:51 left. Kenyon Martin added 18 as the Nuggets won for the seventh time in eight games.

And they have also landed Hynes the AHL’s top honor among his peers. On Wednesday, Hynes was named as the recipient of the Louis A.R. Pieri Award for outstanding coach, as voted by coaches and members of the media in each of the league’s 30 cities. Considering that Hynes has guided the Penguins to a 56-20-0-1 record – one of the best in AHL history, tying the franchise mark for points in a season with113 – all while overcoming a rash of callups and injuries, the award announcement wasn’t a surprise to his players. “No one deserves it as much as him,” defenseman Robert Bortuzzo said. “He set the foundation for us at the start of the season, he’s always the first one here and the last to leave, and there’s not one detail that he doesn’t focus on. “When you do all that, you’ll do good things as a coach.” Hynes said the award is a “huge honor” considering all the great coaches in the AHL. But Hynes was quick to point out that he couldn’t have achieved the honor without help. “When anyone gets an individual award in a team sport they have to be surrounded by great people that help them be able to have success,” Hynes said. “It’s a tribute to the organization, the communication between coaching staffs and management and the players we have the opportunity to coach.”

David Robertson. But the fact is, since the Yankees moved their Triple-A franchise here in 2007, the list of regular position players who were seasoned at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre making it to Yankee Stadium is so short you can count them with one finger. Brett Gardner. That’s it. The Yankees would rather go out and sign Mark Teixeira as a free agent for millions to play first base than give their Triple-A power-hitting prospect Miranda a chance to play there. They’d prefer Curtis Granderson, an American League All-Star with Detroit, over their up-and-coming star Jackson. “It’s a business. Things happen all the time,” said Jackson, who immediately replaced Granderson as the starting center fielder for the Tigers. “You’ve just got to move on.” The chances of moving up to New York seem pretty slim to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre hopefuls like Brandon Laird, and maybe even to Jesus Montero. Laird’s a power-hitting third baseman who’ll play his first Triple-A season opener tonight when Scranton/Wilkes-Barre begins its 2011 season at Lehigh Valley. The Yankees already tried to trade Montero last year. He’s their top pros-

“The sky is the limit. His dedication, work ethic and passion for the game are going to take him as far as he wants to go. … I feel that way about John Hynes. He’s a young, bright mind.” Ryan Craig Penguins captain

And it’s fair to say that the Penguins’ players are happy to have the opportunity to play for Hynes. Before the season began, Craig said, Hynes took a critical first step in his first season as a head coach – he got the players to believe in him. “From day one he came in and he was honest with us,” the Penguins captain said. “There was no cutting corners. We all knew what was expected of us.” And the players knew if they achieved success, Hynes was willing to reward them for it. Several times this season after the Penguins reeled off big wins, Hynes gave his players an extra day off or an optional practice. And when Hynes wants to get the pulse of the team, he is quick to turn to leaders such as Craig, Andrew Hutchinson and Tim Wallace to get their opinion of things. “He knows when to push and when to back off,” Craig said. “He really believes in us and his passion is for us to do well.” The Penguins have piled up numerous awards and records as the regular season wins down. Hynes said the accolades are great, but the team is focused on something else. “It’s more about how we’re going to practice, how we’re going to pect right now who’s back with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after being snubbed for a backup catching job with the parent Yankees this spring. Good luck to them trying to crack New York’s lineup. They’d have even better luck breaking into the major leagues elsewhere.

play and continue to move forward,” he said. “That’s what you love as a coach and a teacher – continue to develop, get better and play this year as long as we can.” Still, Craig offered up one more assessment in his “scouting report” of Hynes and just how far he will go as a head coach. “The sky is the limit. His dedication, work ethic and passion for the game are going to take him as far as he wants to go,” Craig said. “When you say that about a hockey player it means they have talent and drive and the future is kind of up to them. I feel that way about John Hynes. He’s a young, bright mind.” Thiessen named top goalie Goaltender Brad Thiessen added to his list of season awards on Monday when he won the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Memorial Award as the AHL’s outstanding goaltender, as voted by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the league’s 30 cities. Thiessen has posted a sparkling record of 34-7-1in 44 appearances and ranks first in the AHL with his franchise-record 34 wins, second with a 1.93 goals-against average, ninth with a .922 save percentage and tied for first with seven shutouts while helping the

Penguins to the top-ranked defense in the AHL. The 2010-11 First Team AHL All-Star was twice named the Reebok/AHL Goaltender of the Month this season – sharing the honor in October 2010 with Penguins teammate John Curry – and was the Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the week ending Feb. 13. He was also voted the starting Eastern Conference goaltender at the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic but missed the event due to injury. Thiessen is a contender to add another award to his list – the Les Cunningham Award for most valuable player, which will be announced on Friday. The Penguins could also claim the Harry “Hap” Holmes Award for outstanding team goaltending, which will be announced on Sunday. Penguins sign two to ATOs The Penguins signed center Andy Bathgate and defenseman Reid McNeill to amateur tryout deals on Wednesday. Bathgate, 20, joins the Penguins upon completion of his fourth season with the Belleville Bulls (OHL), where he finished second on the team in goals (25) and led the squad in assists (35) and points (60). McNeill,18, finished his second season with his hometown London Knights (OHL). The 6-foot-3, 191-pound defenseman has totaled 11 points (four goals, seven assists), 102 penalty minutes and a plus-10 rating in 115 games over the two seasons. Also, Brandon DeFazio was released from his ATO and rejoined Wheeling, while Ryan Schnell was recalled from the Nailers.

nings of scoreless relief to earn the win. Jose Contreras worked the ninth for his first save. After the Mets scored five in the fifth to tie it at 7, the Phillies answered in the bottom half against Blaine Boyer (0-1). Shane Victorino hit a two-out double and Polanco followed with a sinking liner to right. Carlos Beltran, a three-time Gold Glove winner in center field making the switch to right this season, made a diving attempt but the ball fell in for a single. Victorino scored to put Philadelphia up 8-7. After Jimmy Rollins walked, Howard reached on an infield single up the middle that bounced off Boyer and trickled away. Polanco came around to score from second to make it 9-7. Francisco connected off Boyer in the sixth. He hit two drives Tuesday night that were knocked down by a stiff wind and caught on the warning track. This shot landed several rows back in left. Howard finished 4 for 4 with two doubles, a homer, a walk and two RBIs. Usually a slow starter, he’s batting .524 ( 11 for 21) in five games. Pelfrey, who lost the season opener at Florida, lasted just twoplus innings, allowing seven runs — six earned — and eight hits. Blanton, the forgotten man in Philadelphia’s star-studded rotation, gave up seven runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings. Blanton became an afterthought after the team signed

Cliff Lee to a $120 million contract in the offseason. All the talk was of the Four Aces — Lee, Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels. Blanton was expected to be traded to shed payroll, and he even joked about it when he showed up the first day of spring training and sat at a podium with the other four starters for a news conference. Blanton has decent credentials himself. He’s won 16 games in a season, been an opening-day starter, is 2-0 in the postseason and owns a World Series ring. But he pitched like a No. 5 starter in his season debut. Trailing 7-0, New York started to chip away in the fourth when Pagan hit a two-run shot to leftcenter. The Mets then chased Blanton in the fifth. Blanton struck out pinch-hitter Daniel Murphy to start the inning, but allowed the next seven batters to reach. Jose Reyes doubled and Willie Harris walked. David Wright and Beltran followed with RBIs singles. After Pagan singled to load the bases, Ike Davis ripped a two-run double to get the Mets within a run. Blanton left after walking Brad Emaus to load the bases. Bastardo came in and struck out Josh Thole. But Murphy singled to left to tie it at 7. Reyes flied out to left to end the inning. The Phillies jumped on Pelfrey for a pair in the first. Victorino tripled to right-center and scored on Polanco’s sharp groundout to second. Howard drove a two-out double to deep left-center and scored when Raul Ibanez lined a single to left.

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds’ confident defense team rested its case Wednesday without calling a single witness, just minutes after a federal judge accepted the government’s request to dismiss one of the five counts against the home run king. Prosecutors called 25 witnesses to the stand over 21⁄2 weeks, but the defense needed just one minute to present its side.

knowingly receiving steroids from Anderson, denied getting human growth hormone from Anderson and said he only allowed himself to be injected by doctors. The final count accuses Bonds of obstruction of justice. On the 11th day of the trial, the defense presentation lasted about the time it took Bonds to circle the bases after one of his record 762 home runs. Lawyer Cristina Arguedas read the jury one answer from the grand jury testimony of former Bonds’ girlfriend Kimberly Bell in which Bell said she wrote her own diary. That conflicts with Bell’s trial testimony, in which she said ghost writer Aphrodite Jones collaborated on the diary. Defense lawyer Allen Ruby had said Tuesday he might call up to six witnesses, including Bonds. But Bonds never took the stand

to tell the jury his side of the story, signaling the defense thinks the government has failed to prove its charges beyond a reasonable doubt. Just one witness, former Bonds’ personal shopper Kathy Hoskins, gave eyewitness testimony that corroborated any of the charges. She said she once saw Anderson inject Bonds near the belly button but didn’t identify the substance. With Anderson in jail for refusing to testify, prosecutors had to rely on witnesses who put Bonds near Anderson and needles, along with evidence that Anderson was supplying players with performance-enhancing drugs. If Bonds is convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on each count. However, federal guidelines suggest a total sentence of 15 to 21 months.

counts, Bonds will face just four charges when the jury starts deliberations in a court house less than two miles from the ballpark where he set records for the Giants. A decision could come as early as Friday. Faced with a defense motion that Illston was prepared to grant, prosecutors dropped the count accusing Bonds of lying to a grand jury in 2003 when he said prior to that season he never took anything other than vitamins from trainer Greg Anderson. The defense said the government presented no evidence that Bonds was given steroids known as “The Clear” and “The Cream,” before 2003. Bonds testified in front of the grand jury that Anderson told him the substances were flaxseed oil and arthritic balm. The remaining counts charge Bonds with lying when he denied

Ruling on lockout won’t come soon; Judge asks for talks to resume By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

ST. PAUL, Minn. — As she wrapped up the five-hour hearing on the legality of the NFL lockout, the federal judge overseeing the case said she’d take “a couple of weeks” to rule on the players’ request to return to work. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, however, urged the two sides not to wait that long. “It seems to me both sides are at risk, and now is a good time to come back to the table,” Nelson said, noting her willingness to facilitate the resumption of talks toward a new collective bargaining agreement that would put pro football back on track. Owners and players failed to reach that goal last month, leading to the decertification of the union, the lockout of the players and the antitrust lawsuit against the owners filed here by the players. But the two sides don’t agree on much these days. Attorneys for the players said they’re open to talking again. Lawyers for the league hedged on their eagerness to take Nelson up on her offer, by saying the owners prefer to be back at the bargaining table. The injunction request — a plea to the judge that the lockout be immediately lifted on the grounds that their careers are being irreparably harmed — was the sole purpose of Wednesday’s hearing. The court appearance was the

first round — call it the first quarter — between the NFL and the players in their legal fight over the future of the $9 billion business and the 2011 season. Teams of attorneys from both sides, officials from the now-dissolved union, several NFL players and dozens of reporters crowded the courtroom, but little

was accomplished other than the formal launch of the legal process. David Boies, a lawyer for the NFL, argued that the court shouldn’t have jurisdiction while the National Labor Relations Board is considering an unfair labor charge filed by the league that players didn’t negotiate in

good faith. The NFL’s contention is that the union’s decertification was a tactical maneuver and that it has the legal right to keep players from working. Boies claimed players are still acting like a union, that the NFL Players’ Association is funding the litigation and has set up other services for the players as if it

were a fully formed labor entity. DeMaurice Smith, the head of the NFLPA, attended the hearing, and the players, lawyers and union officials arrived and departed together in a bus. “They’re financing this lawsuit,” Boies said. “They’re saying, ’We’re no longer a collective bargaining agent, but we’re going to

continue to do all these things.”’ James Quinn, an attorney for the players, dismissed the accusation that the decertification was a sham, pointing to unanimous participation in a player vote to approve the move. “It’s not some kind of tactic. It’s the law,” Quinn said. “It’s what we’re allowed to do.”

Today

Job market momentum? Investors are looking for the government’s latest unemployment report to continue a streak of good news about the job market. Last week, the government said the unemployment rate fell to a two-year low of 8.8 percent in March. Today, the Labor Department is expected to say that fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week.

Rite Aid earnings

March sales reports from many of the nation’s biggest retailers are expected to show whether higher gas prices are stopping consumers from spending on other items. Financial analysts expect to see sales rising for a ninth straight month. But a chilly spring as well as the rising cost of gas could mean the gains are small.

Rite Aid has already warned that its sales fell during its fiscal fourth quarter in part because it closed 66 stores. The nation’s third-largest drug store chain was also hurt by the weak economy and the cost of launching a customer loyalty program. Investors will be more focused on the future: Rite Aid will give its forecast for the next year. $1.50

NYC firm buys Iron City

A New York City private equity firm has bought Pittsburgh’s Iron City Brewing Co. Uni-World Capital LP bought the company’s Iron City and IC Light labels, some lesser brands and the company’s other assets for an undisclosed price from another investment group that had bought the brewery out of bankruptcy in 2007. The brewing company is still headquartered in Pittsburgh, even though it shut down its 150-year-old city brewery and now contracts to have its beers brewed at the former Rolling Rock brewery in Latrobe. Iron City has struggled since the company was first sold at bankruptcy auction for $31 million in 1995.

Unemployment rates are falling in most metro areas across the country, suggesting that hiring is widespread and not limited to a few healthy regions. The Labor Department says more than three-quarters of the nation’s 372 largest metro areas reported lower unemployment rates in February than the previous month. That’s the most to report a decline since September. More than 300 cities have seen their unemployment rates decline in the past year, the best showing since the recession ended in June 2009. And more than 280 metro areas reported job gains in the past year, also the most since the recession ended. Nationwide, private employers added more than 200,000 jobs in both February and March, the best twomonth pace since 2006. The local data is one month behind the national figures.

Borders to move its HQ

Borders, a fixture in Ann Arbor, Mich., since opening its first store there in 1971, is planning to move its headquarters out of the city to find cheaper space. Spokeswoman Mary Davis says the company is looking at ways to move its headquarters from Ann Arbor to another space in metropolitan Detroit in an effort to cut costs. The bookseller is trying to reorganize its business in Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Borders filed for bankruptcy protection in February. It is closing about 226 stores nationwide.

The Toyota Prius hybrid, once viewed as a science experiment for environmentalists, has become a mainstream vehicle in the United States, with the company selling more than a million of the cars nationwide. Toyota announced Wednesday that it had passed the million sales milestone, helped by brisk sales recently as U.S. gasoline prices continued to rise toward $4 per gallon. The Prius, which is powered by both a gasoline engine and an electric motor, gets an estimated 51 miles per gallon city and 48 highway.

Scranton/W-B foreclosures hit new high Foreclosure actions in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region hit a new high in January, rising to 3.32 percent of all mortgaged properties. The numbers were released Wednesday by CoreLogic, a real estate data and analytics company based in Santa Ana, Calif. In December, the rate was

3.16, marking the first time since the recession began in 2008 that mortgaged homes topped the 3 percent foreclosure mark. Not only did January repeat that milestone, but the rate increased by .16 points. The rising rate shows no sign of reversing when the number of mortgage delinquencies in the region is taken into account. According to the report, the mortgage delinquency rate for

loans 90 days delinquent or more -- an indicator of potential future foreclosures -- has increased in the region to 6.93 percent compared to 6.77 percent in December and 6.92 percent the prior January. That means that the owners of more than one out of every 20 mortgaged homes in the region is at least 90 days delinquent in making a payment. Properties whose owners miss three monthly payments are

considered at high risk for foreclosure. The region evaluated by CoreLogic includes Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming counties Foreclosure activity in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region is lower than the national foreclosure rate which was 3.63 percent for January, representing a .31 percentage point difference. But the region is more than one percentage point

higher than the state rate of 2.55 percent. The region falls between the national and state 90-day delinquent rates, too. The national rate is 7.87 percent, and the state rate is 5.68 percent. Only one part of the tri-county area had a mortgage foreclosure rate below .8 percent, and that was an area of Wyoming County between Falls and Lake Winola.

Dish Network Corp. said Wednesday it won the auction for Blockbuster Inc. with a bid valued at $228 million in cash. Dish has so far been mum about specific plans for Blockbuster.

Dish deal may preserve Blockbuster By MAE ANDERSON AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Dish Network Corp.’s agreement to buy Blockbuster Inc.’s assets out of bankruptcy could keep the movie-rental chain and its blue-andgold logo from disappearing. But whether the No. 3 pay TV company can use Blockbuster’s brand, stores and streaming-video capabilities to create services more relevant to the age of Netflix and Hulu remains to be seen. Dish, headed by billionaire Charles Ergen, won a two-day bankruptcy auction for Blockbuster that stretched into the early hours of Wednesday with a bid valued at $228 million in cash. Dish has so far been mum about specific plans for Blockbuster, but in its an-

nouncement, the company highlighted the 1,700 stores that will remain and "multiple methods of delivery." Dish spokeswoman Francie Bauer said the Englewood, Colo.-based company would not comment further since the deal must receive bankruptcy court approval. A hearing for that approval is set for today. Dish expects the deal to close in the second quarter. Satellite TV providers have been losing new subscribers as cheaper alternatives like Hulu and Netflix become more popular. Ergen has in past calls with analysts praised Netflix, which offers unlimited streaming video at a monthly price along with a DVD-by-mail service.

Acquiring Blockbuster will make Dish a more viable competitor in streaming video online. It’s doing so at a price easily affordable for Dish, which had nearly $3 billion in cash as of Dec. 31. Dish also recently picked up satellite provider DBSD North America. “Ergen continues to look for distressed assets selling at bargain prices,” said RBC Capital Markets analyst Ryan Vineyard. Blockbuster “could transform Dish into a much more viable online competitor than it is now.” Dish beat out billionaire investor Carl Icahn and a group of debt holders for the Dallas movie-rental chain, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September.

NEW YORK — A late Easter, lingering cold weather and rising gas prices are squeezing discretionary spending this spring, according to data being released Wednesday. Figures from MasterCard Advisors’ SpendingPulse show sales growth slowed in some categories last month. But consumers spent more on clothing — and most other items from electronics to luxury goods — than they did in March 2010. SpendingPulse tracks spending across all payments. Growth in online sales, still less than 10 percent of all retail sales, accelerated last month as shoppers tried to save on gas, according to Michael McNamara, vice president of research and analysis for SpendingPulse. Online spending in all categories rose 16.1 percent, compared with lower rates in January and February and a 15.9 percent increase in March 2010. “March wasn’t too bad; the momentum is continuing,” McNamara said. “But gas prices could have a bigger effect (on spending) if they continue to rise.” Separately, selected major retailers are to report today on revenue at their stores open at least a year. Analysts expect merchants collectively to report a decline for March from a year earlier, the first drop since August 2009. An important factor in the expected drop is that Easter falls on April 24 this year, so sales won’t get a boost from holiday-related spending until this month.

Verizon 4G network is coming to a phone near you -- soon VERIZON HAS recently confirmed that it will be rolling out its new 4G LTE network in WilkesBarre by the end of the year. Since 4G smartphones and a bevy of devices including the newest smartphones, aircards and the Motorola Xoom Tablet are already available locally, you may already be equipped to take advantage when the day arrives. Trust me, it will make a difference. If you remember the day you got that DSL or cable modem installed, then you’ll be able to understand. The big difference is speed -- and lots of it. Yes, browsing the Internet will be faster, to be sure. But streaming video on that tablet? Transferring files or accessing your office computer on that 4G aircard? You might not even

And if your phone can act as a mobile hotspot – that is provide wireless Internet access to other devices around it -- well, I won’t say I recommend doing this, but you might be able to kiss that hardwired Internet connection goodbye. I confess that I’m surprised that the area will see 4G this early in the game. Some more populous metro areas will be waiting in the wings while we reap the benefits of 21stcentury technology. I suspect that this is one of the benefits of being situated in the corridor between two of the nation’s largest cities, but I’ll take it.

And there’s one other additional benefit. Verizon 4G devices will be compatible with most 4G European networks, so there will be no need to rent a phone when you go overseas.

The first quarter reminded investors that a rally in the stock market can easily turn into volatility that sends prices swinging. The S&P 500 rose 7 percent through Feb. 18. It then fell 6 percent through March 16 before recovering and ending the quarter with a 6 percent gain. Three market analysts say there are lessons for investors from the quarter:

Quincy Krosby Market Strategist, Prudential Financial Stocks fell because of unrest in Libya and the earthquake in Japan. By March 16, the S&P 500 had given up all of its gains for the year. But traders focused again on the U.S. economy and stocks recovered their losses in just over a week – even as the problems overseas continued. Krosby says investors should take a deep breath when they read dramatic headlines, and leave their money where it is: “There’s always something to worry about.” Adam Bold Founder, The Mutual Fund Store Volatile periods are the best times to be a stock picker. When the market falls sharply as it did in March, some companies become good long-term buys. If you don’t have the time to research stocks, consider an actively managed fund. These funds are better at buying a stock when it’s about to shoot higher – and selling once it has peaked. Bold says that given what’s going on in market now, these funds are a better choice than index funds. Christian Hviid

Chief Market Strategist, Genworth Financial Asset Management Investors were initially concerned about the impact the earthquake and tsunami could have on U.S. companies. But news March 17 of a rise in manufacturing in the mid-Atlantic states reminded investors that U.S. companies are doing well. Financial analysts were already predicting strong first-quarter earnings. They’re now forecasting that companies in the S&P 500 rose an average 12 percent. Investors shouldn’t ignore international disasters, but if they invest in strong companies, those events will have less of an impact. Francesca Levy, Elizabeth Gramling • AP

We're having another rather cold and damp morning after the rain last night, but at least there's no wind and lawns are starting to turn green again. I think that later today clearing will be evident from north to south and a crescent moon will adorn the western sky this evening. Friday is still looking dry, with rain staying very close by just to our south. A shower could sneak in Friday night. Saturday is looking mostly cloudy and mainly dry, however, there may be a late day shower or one at night and even early on Sunday. After that, temperatures will surge upward and soon the forsythia will be in full bloom. - Tom Clark

NATIONAL FORECAST: A few light rain showers will depart the Northeast this morning; otherwise high pressure will provide dry weather throughout the East today. More significant weather will be found in the central Plains as a storm system triggers showers and thunderstorms. Rain and snow showers will be widely scattered throughout much of the West as a broad upper-level trough will be in place.

ide-leg pants, fringe, embroidered tops and maxi-length skirts — this spring designers have moved from modernizing the ’80s to updating the ’70s. • The loose, almost

shapeless tops have merged with the still-strong ladylike look, creating feminine blouses that forgive yet aren’t easy to forget. And those jute rope soles of espadrilles are back, but the vibe is more haute than casual.

CAN YOU DIG IT?

Languid length breezes into warm-weather styles The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The temperatures are slowly rising to spring-like conditions around the country, but don’t expect hemlines to follow. The big trend for the season is longer lengths — below-the-knee skirts, maxi dresses and flared-leg trousers. These flowing silhouettes bring with them well-deserved freedom from the multiple layers and heavy fabrics that were de rigueur over the course of a storm-filled winter. Consider the new shapes a breath of fresh air, says Patrick Robinson, creative director for Gap. “When you come out of such a hard winter, I think people will be looking for soft, easy clothes that you can wear only in the spring. ... You want

“We’ve done the sharp edges. ... We want the softer pieces to remind us of the change in seasons — it’s a trigger for your mind. We want things that help us feel carefree. I think we miss it.” Patrick Robinson, Creative director for Gap

contrast,” he says. “I always use clothes to tell me what time of year it is.” The looser and more languid look also seems a commentary on shoppers’ collective state of mind, too. Perhaps they are willing to give up the sleek, fitted armor they wore to do battle with the recession. Retail sales were stronger in February than economists expected, with a 4.2 percent increase, and that came off a similar increase in January and the best holiday season since 2006. Robinson says consumers had been looking for protection but now they’re looking for signs of optimism. “We’ve done the sharp

edges. ... We want the softer pieces to remind us of the change in seasons — it’s a trigger for your mind. We want things that help us feel carefree. I think we miss it.” The wide-cuff, long-leg pants are for many women an easier way to move into this look, says Lisa Axelson, Ann Taylor senior vice president of design. Start there, with a skinny, brightly colored belt and a T-shirt or blouse, she advises. Once you’re used to creating a triangular shape with a pared-down top, you’ll be ready when it’s bare-leg weather for the skirts, pencil or pleated, or even the maxi.

site effect of a strong-shouldered jacket with skinny pants, she says.) Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles already has her new printed Prada skirt that hits her knee, which she’ll pair with a crisp white buttondown, but she thinks anything longer takes careful consideration and effort. “There are a lot of maxi dresses, and they’re easy for day-to-night dressing, but they’re hard to wear to the office if it’s conservative at all,” Coles says. “A calf-length skirt is on trend, but it’s not as flattering as knee-length. What you can’t go wrong with is a bottom that really flatters you. If wide-leg pants make you look three times wider than you are, don’t wear them.”

She is a fan of the pencil skirt, calling it “almost universally flattering.” Kelly Golden, owner of the upscale Chicago-area boutique Neapolitan, expects young women to fully embrace the maxi, with its bohemian vibe, but she thinks the neater, mid-calf skirt will do better overall. “The ’40s silhouette, a suit with a cropped jacket or a fitted blouse, is a very ladylike way to do the longer length.” The ’70s, however, is the decade to channel right now, according to Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, chief merchandising officer of Gilt Groupe. The way to do it — whether you The Derek Lam Spring 2011 opt for long and lean, or loose collection. and ethereal — is to wear it with the confidence of a cool Ali McGraw type. “I think one should always dress for your body type and style. Don’t embrace something because it’s on the runway, embrace it because it works for you and your life.”

Readers agree: Girl’s promiscuity is no cause for her mother’s pride Dear Abby: I’m the mother of two boys who are 12 and 13. The letter from “Terrified for My Niece in the Southwest” (Feb. 16) horrified me. The aunt who wrote the letter said her sister “bragged” about how popular her 14-year-old daughter is because she gives oral sex to the boys. I know kids are curious and experiment at this age, but it’s disturbing that the mother of this girl doesn’t see that her actions are dangerous and can lead to more serious sexual situations. If she were MY niece, I would speak up and let Mom know exactly how I felt in hopes that she would recognize how inappropriate

DEAR ABBY ADVICE her daughter’s actions are. Pregnancy can become a harsh reality to a parent who was blind to the seriousness of her child’s actions. — Yvette in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. Dear Yvette: Thank you for writing. Many readers were equally disturbed by that letter, and a few even questioned its authenticity. I spoke to the aunt who wrote the letter. She verified that she had written it and everything she said was true. Perhaps the following responses will serve as a wake-up call for teens AND parents:

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I have been a criminal investigator for more than 38 years and can state with certainty that having sex with Naomi is a FELONY in most, if not all, states, particularly if the boy is over the age of 16. At 14, this girl is not able to give consent. What is happening is considered an act of rape, even if it is voluntary. Someone needs to intervene NOW before some “innocent” boy gets charged with a crime. I’ve handled too many cases where boys have been charged with rape when the girl gets angry at him for no reason. The welfare of all the children is at stake! — “Snooper” in Wisconsin Dear Abby: This letter literally makes the hair on the back of my

CRYPTOQUOTE

neck stand up when I think about a mother who would BRAG about something like this to family and do nothing about it. That mother is in desperate need of counseling, and Naomi is in desperate need of guidance because, obviously, she’s not getting any from her mom. I wonder if her dad has any idea what’s going on? — A Mom in Great Falls, Mont. Dear Abby: This girl’s mother is abdicating her responsibilities as a parent and indirectly condoning and encouraging her daughter’s promiscuous behavior. The emotional damage could be irreparable. Naomi is being used and abused by any young man with whom she is involved. The aunt should talk to her sister and, if there

is a father in the house, he needs to know about his daughter. In my opinion, that mother wants her daughter to be popular for all the wrong reasons. Mom sounds like someone who sat on the sidelines in high school and never understood that what makes a person popular is the ability to carry on an intelligent conversation, get good grades, provide community service and so on. Pity! — Barbara in Kalamazoo, Mich. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your agenda may not be so easily sold on its own. But when you piggyback your plan with one that is already positioned to succeed, you’ll have a smash hit on your hands. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The same guidelines that were put in place to keep order and create safety are now stifling your freedom and limiting your joy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have an appropriate command of your space. You send all the right signals so that others come close when you need them to hear and see you and stay far away when you prefer to be alone. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The initial impression someone made years ago is still affecting the way you think of this person today. But something will happen to change all of that. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are bright and capable — a natural choice to lead the group. And yet you may not feel that you want the extra responsibility that comes with the role. You’ll find a way to lead without being the official leader. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll influence those who see you as serious and knowledgeable. To help this image along, move more slowly than everyone else. Your every gesture will seem to have greater importance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you look forward to having downtime when you can recharge your energy, you still have a ways to go. Take short breaks instead of long ones. Distractions abound.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are sensitive to the feelings of others; therefore, people open up around you. What you learn because of this may be surprising or even shocking. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Prepare for an upcoming meeting as though you are practicing for a game. Rehearse what you’ll say. Play out different scenarios, and try to guess how the other person will react. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You take care to make others feel comfortable around you. When someone new enters your realm, you’ll immediately initiate a connection. Through your example, you’ll teach good manners to an ill-mannered world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may start out less confident than you could be. A pep talk in the mirror will be in order. With a little extra attention to your image, you’ll come across better than you thought you could. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your many responsibilities will require you to be outgoing. Your heart remains light, even as you deliver a substantial message. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 7). Your eye-on-the-prize mentality will serve you well. Stay on track, and you will soon accomplish what you set out to do. In June, you’ll win one prize and be ready for a change. A new study, hobby or activity will strike your fancy. Shared adventure bonds you with a sweetie in July. August brings career luck. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 12, 41, 25 and 3.

A summary of the subject Ordinance and amendments therein, are as follows: Ordinance 1. The amendments within this Ordinance are designed to regulate the development, production, compression, processing, transmission and metering of oil and gas and related facilities authorized by approval of a zoning permit as a conditional use in designated zoning districts within the Township, including but not limited to, supplemental regulations addressing special criteria, standards, conditions and requirements applicable to defined uses and activities regulated within the subject Ordinance.

The Board shall have the authority to permit the use or deny the use in accordance with the standards governing special exception applications. The proposed use may be permitted only if it is determined to be similar to and compatible with permitted uses in the district and in no way is in conflict with the general purposes and intent of this Ordinance. The burden of proof shall be upon the applicant to demonstrate that the proposed use would meet the standards and criteria for a special exception as contained in Section 1510.2 of this Ordinance and would not be detrimental to the public health, safety and welfare and/or environmental features and characteristics of the site and/or surrounding areas. B. Repeal the term “Excavation and Extraction of Minerals” as conditional use in the Conservation District under Article 5, Subsection 501.4. C.
