Toole case: Letters and the law

Judge releases messages, saying it is vital to give access to sentencing factors.



SCRANTON – Acknowledging the importance of transparency within the court system, a federal judge on Thursday ordered the release of the majority of letters written on behalf of former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole relating to his sentencing today on a corruption charge. U.S. District Judge Richard P. Conaboy agreed that letters written by public officials, First reported court workers, 4:13 friends and coP.m. workers timesleader should be leased, but denied the release of letters written by certain family members, members of Alcoholics Anonymous, religious officials and Toole’s alcohol counselor. Conaboy said he believed the letters from public officials should be released in their entirety because those persons, by virtue of their positions, do not have the same expectation of privacy as private individuals.

To many of his friends and family members, the Michael Toole appearing before a federal judge for sentencing on

corruption-related charges today has done more good than bad and deserves a break, they said in letters written on his behalf. They recalled his sense of humor, his compassion and devotion to family when asking for leniency for the 51year-old former Luzerne County judge. The letters might not have

been made public if other media organizations had not joined WNEP-TV in asking for their release. Toole’s attorney Frank Nocito argued that they be kept private.

McMonagle cites honesty and fairness on the job

WILKES-BARRE – Jim McMonagle has been a prosecutor in Luzerne County for 17 years. He has represented the District Attorney’s Office honestly and fairly since being hired in 1993, he told The Times Leader’s endorsement board Thursday. Now, he’s ready to represent the people of Luzerne County by running for one of six open seats on the Court of Common Pleas. “I thought I was as good or better than candidates running (in 2009),” McMonagle said. A native of Johnstown, McMonagle came to Luzerne County and was appointed as a full-time assistant district attorney in 1993. He has held the


position ever since. “Being a lawyer always fascinated me,” McMonagle said, noting his father was a police officer in Cambria

D’Alessandri will stay on to serve in an advisory role at the college until June 30. No reason was given for D’Alessandri’s decision, other than he was pursuing other opportunities. “It has been my privilege to serve as President and Dean of TCMC since its inception and we have accomplished a great deal,” D’Alessandri said in an e-mailed statement. “Working together with our board, faculty, staff and community, we have made con-

Dallas board OKs quotes for new equipment Furniture for classrooms and cafeteria included in purchases. Savings cited. By SARAH HITE

DALLAS TWP. – The Dallas School Board approved quotes to purchase new equipment, including furniture for classrooms and the cafeteria, at a work session meeting Wednesday evening. The new materials will be purchased from Virco Manufacturing Corp. via a federal cooperative purchasing program. Busi-

ness Manager Grant Palfey said the federal program offered better prices for the equipment than the state cooperative purchasing program. Palfey said the board had budgeted $733,700 for new purchases, and materials were decided upon through committee meetings that included high school personnel. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the committee included board members as well, and through discussions about the need for new equipment and whether old furniture can be used, the district saved about

$250,000. The cafeteria will be furnished with new tables and chairs for a price of $68,178, which will be paid through the cafeteria fund. Classroom furniture, including state flags, desks for teachers and students, filing cabinets, storage units, lights, bookcases, pencil sharpeners, lecterns and other furnishings, will cost $522,409, which will be purchased through the capital projects fund. Craig Zimmerman, of Crabtree Rohrbaugh and Associates, told the board the high school construction project is about two to three weeks behind, but the gen-

In other business, the board was presented with a dramatic duo performance by the high

school forensics team. Juniors Sarah Pomfret and Angelina Hoidra performed a 10-minute piece from the musical “Gypsy.” Team coach and senior high school teacher Candyce Fike said she wanted an opportunity to show the board “what they’re paying for” in terms of the caliber of students in the program.

Firefall, Pure Prairie League, Poco play memories R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE -- Three of the most successful country-rock bands of the 1970s got together for a memorable evening at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday. Acoustic instruments and glorious harmonies filled the theater as Poco, Pure Prairie League and Firefall teamed up for more than three hours of memories and music. Firefall, still featuring original member Jock Bartley, began the show with a stripped-down 40minute set. Before kicking off with the group’s first single, “Livin’ Ain’t Livin’,” Bartley promised that even though the band was just a trio for the evening, it would still rock the crowd. Bartley, guitarist Steven Weinmeister and bassist Bill Hopkins

did not disappoint as they ran through crowd-pleasing renditions of “Just Remember I Love You,” “You Are The Woman” and “Strange Way.” Firefall then finished up with a blistering version of “Mexico,” featuring some fine electric fretwork from Bartley and some equally fine acoustic playing by Weinmeister. Pure Prairie League followed with a 50-minute set highlighted by its hits “Let Me Love You Tonight,” “Two Lane Highway” and a great medley of Merle Haggardrelated songs. The five-piece band featured four singers and some great pedal steel playing by longtime member John David Call. PPL’s set was capped with an outstanding version of its most memorable set of tunes, “Falling In and Out of Love” and “Amie,” just as they ran together on the group’s second album, 1972’s

“Bustin’ Out.” But the evening belonged to Rusty Young and Poco, who took the stage at about 9:20 and capped the evening with a splendid set, starting off with “Call It Love” from 1989’s “Legacy” album. Early highlights for Poco included “Rose of Cimarron” and some remarkable three-part harmony on “Keep On Trying,” written by former band member Timothy B. Schmidt (now of the Eagles). The group really hit its stride on a pair of songs from 1979’s “Legend” album as the quartet played great versions of “Crazy Love” and “Heart of the Night.” The members of Poco – Young, Jack Sundrud, George Lawrence and Mike Webb – showed off their instrumental chops on “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” before heading down the homestretch. The attendance figure for

Fourteen of Lidy’s co-defendants, including alleged ring leaderLenny“RahRah”Clements,of the Bronx, N.Y., are currently awaiting trial in Luzerne County Court. Diane Yakabovicz, of WilkesBarre; Lisa Rosiak, of Pittston; and Darleen Coffee, of Pittston, have pleaded guilty to related charges and are awaiting sentencing. Michael Weber, of West Wyoming, is scheduled to enter a guilty plea to related charges in May. Three others, William Meserve, of Blakely, Patricia Osterweil, of Edwardsville and James Corrigan, of Plymouth, had all previously pleaded guilty to related charges and were sentenced in February and July to11 ½ to 23 months in county prison.

Facing a midnight deadline today to avert a government shutdown, Congress and President Barack Obama were attempting to reach an agreement while uncertainty reached all areas of government operations. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said both sides need to come together on a compromise to avoid a government shutdown. “Spending must be cut, but a shutdown that could hurt the economic recovery must be avoided,” Casey said. Larry Smar, spokesman for the senator, said the operation of Casey’s offices will be affected by a shutdown. U.S. Reps. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, and Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, each said they were working hard to avoid a shutdown. “Just this afternoon, I voted for a measure that would not only keep paying our troops through the end of the fiscal year, but also keep the government open for another week,” Barletta said.

child endangerment and disorderly conduct to county court.


WEST PITTSTON – A woman who police allege endangered a child while hallucinating on bath salts waived her right to a preliminary hearing before District Judge Joseph Carmody on Wednesday. Amber Sutton, 26, of Luzerne Avenue, waived charges of child endangerment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief to Luzerne County Court. West Pittston police allege Sutton and her boyfriend, Robert V. Hospodar, 29, were hallucinating on bath salts when they believed 90 people were living in their walls on March 19. They used knives to stab the walls and endangered a child in the process, according to the criminal complaints. Hospodar previously waived his right to a preliminary hearing, sending charges of

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County senior judge filed an order Thursday delaying a homicide suspect’s trial another week. Senior Judge Joseph Augello said the trial for Elvis Riccardi, 33, will be held June 13 beginning with jury selection rather than the original date of June 7. The move was made at the request of prosecutors in the case. Riccardi and Michael Simonson, 33, allegedly killed Donald Skiff, 34, of Plymouth, on April 27, 2009. Skiff’s body was found with the help of Simonson in a wooded area off Suscon Road, Jenkins Township, on June 4, 2009. Investigators alleged Riccardi and Simonson kidnapped Skiff in Shickshinny. Simonson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison in August.



WILKES-BARRE – A Hanover Township woman who admitted to her role in a cocaine and heroin distribution ring that netted 21 other suspects was sentenced Wednesday to two to four years in prison. Ashley Lidy, 23, of Keith Street, was sentenced on three related charges, including corrupt organizations, by Luzerne County Senior Judge Hugh Mundy. Lidy pleaded guilty to the charges in January, and requested Wednesday that she be permitted to serve her sentence at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility until she is recovered from a recent surgery. Mundy granted the request, and said that after Lidy is released from care by her doctor, she must be transferred to a state correctional institution to complete her sentence. Lidy and her co-defendants were charged in September after the Attorney General’s Drug Task Force suspected the ring

the lawmakers. The president said late Thursday that talks with congressional leaders yield progress but no deal to avoid a shutdown. With an agreement elusive, Republicans passed legislation through the House to fund the Pentagon for six months, cut $12 billion in domestic spending and keep the federal bureaucracy humming for an additional week. “There is absolutely no policy reason for the Senate to not follow the House in taking these responsible steps to support our troops and to keep our government open,” said Boehner. But Obama flashed a veto threat even before the bill passed on a 247-181, mostly party-line vote. The administration issued a statement calling it “a distraction from the real work” of agreeing on legislation to cover the six months left in the current fiscal year, and there was no indication Reid would allow a vote on it.

Shutdown’s impact could vary locally By BILL O’BOYLE MATT HUGHES


Kelly said Barletta’s office in Hazleton will remain open. Renita Fennick, spokeswoman for Marino, said a contingency plan for staffing is being prepared. “My main concern right now is to make sure that our men and women serving in the military, at home and abroad, will receive their paychecks,” Marino said. In the event of a shutdown, some agencies and services locally may be affected: Social Security Administration: Benefits are paid from the program’s trust fund and are not subject to appropriation by Congress. Obama and leading Democrats have warned that Social Security recipients might not get their checks in the event of a shutdown, but during the last major government shutdown in 1995, that didn’t happen. The American Federation of Government Employees, the Social Security workers union, has warned that the 1,500 employees of the SSA’s Wilkes-Barre Processing Center in Plains Township will be temporarily furloughed in the event of a shutdown, creating work backlogs and slowing the claims process.

Internal Revenue Service: The tax filing deadline will still be April 18. The IRS would not be able to process paper-filed tax returns, but those filed electronically will still be processed and money owed to the government will still be collected. The U.S. Treasury Department added that limited telephone customer-service functions will remain available, but IRS walk-in taxpayer assistance services will not be available. A treasury department spokeswoman said she could not comment on whether the WilkesBarre office would remain open during a shutdown. U.S. Postal Service: All post offices will remain open. The postal service is self-funded. Veteran’s Affairs health services: Hospitals and clinics, including the local Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center and area VA clinics, will remain open and will not be affected by a shutdown. The VA has received a fullyear appropriation to operate its health care system through the end of 2011. Tobyhanna Army Depot: The depot does not anticipate any disruption in operation.

For all the brinksmanship, there was agreement that a shutdown posed risks to an economy still recovering from the worst recession in decades. The political fallout was less predictable, especially with control of government divided and dozens of new tea party-backed Republicans part of a new GOP majority in the House. Twin government shutdowns in the mid-1990s damaged Republicans, then new to power in Congress, and helped President Bill Clinton win re-election in 1996. In a shift in position, Obama said he would sign a short-term measure keeping the government running even without an agreement to give negotiations more time to succeed. That was one of the options available to Reid, although Boehner said he was confident Democratic lawmakers would persuade “Reid and our commander in chief to keep the government from shutting down” by signing the House-passed bill. At the White House, a senior budget official said the impact of a shutdown “will be immediately

felt on the economy.” It also would be felt unevenly, said Jeff Zients, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget. Military troops would not receive their full paychecks, but Social Security recipients would still get monthly benefits, he said. “National parks, national forests and the Smithsonian Institution would all be closed. The NIH Clinical Center will not take new patients, and no new clinical trials will start,” he added in a roll call of expected agency closings. But the air traffic control system would stay up and running, the emergency management agency would still respond to natural disasters and border security would not be affected. There was no indication Reid planned to bring the Housepassed stopgap bill to a vote, and he accused Republicans of blocking a deal by demanding antiabortion provisions and a blockade on Environmental Protection Agency regulations on greenhouse gas and other pollutants.

Local man is accused of killing Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett in 2002

Selenski trial set for June 27 By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – Nearly eight years after the bodies of Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett were unearthed from a Kingston Township property, their alleged killer is scheduled to stand trial. Luzerne County Senior Judge Chester Muroski scheduled a tentative First reported at date for Hugo Selenski to be tried 9:13 before a jury of his a.m. peers on June 27 beginning with jury selection. Selenski, 37, faces the death penalty. In a brief hearing at which Selenski appeared Thursday, Muroski also said prosecutors have until July 8 to bring Selenski to trial. Attorneys also have until June 16 to file any motions or requests in the case. Attorneys are not permitted to comment on the case because of a longstanding gag order. Prosecutors say Kerkowski and Fassett’s bodies were unearthed in June 2003 at the house Selenski shared with his girlfriend on Mount Olivet Road in Kingston Township. Investigators say the couple were killed in 2002. Selenski’s trial on the charges has

June 5, 2003: Two bodies are unearthed at a Kingston Township property where Hugo Selenski lives. Selenski is arrested on robbery and assault charges stemming from a 2002 robbery. Several days later, the bodies are identified as Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett. Sept. 17, 2003: Police identify additional remains as drug dealers Frank James and Adeiye Keiler. An informant claims Selenski killed both men in May. Oct. 6, 2003: Selenski is charged in the deaths of James and Keiler. Oct. 10, 2003: Selenski escapes from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility by climbing down bed sheets and using a mattress to climb over a razor-wire fence. He surrenders three days later.

Jan. 25, 2008: Weakley pleads guilty. He is serving a life sentence. July 10, 2009: Selenski convicted of assault and robbery of Chestnut Hill Township jeweler in Monroe County Court. He is later sentenced to a maximum of 65 years in state prison.

been delayed for years while attorneys appealed Muroski’s rulings and awaited decisions. The most recent was last month when the state Supreme Court declined to hear Selenski’s appeal of a ruling regarding the admissibility of testimony of Michael Kerkowski Sr. Muroski previously ruled that a transcript of testimony given by the elder Kerkowski could be admitted into evidence at the trial. The elder Kerkowski had testified at Selenski’s preliminary hearing and was

scheduled to testify at the trial, but he died in September 2006. The judge also ruled late last week that prosecutors are prohibited from using a recorded telephone conversation Selenski allegedly had with Michael Kerkowski Sr. Selenski’s attorneys, John Pike, Robert Buttner and David Lampman, asked that they be permitted to speak with their client since he was transported to Luzerne County on Thursday and that he remain at a Luzerne County state prison to discuss aspects of his

WILKES-BARRE – The Repeat Boutique, a resale shop operated by volunteers at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, celebrated its one-year anniversary Thursday by holding a 50 percent off sale. Proceeds will benefit Geisinger Northeast Auxiliary projects. The boutique, located at 25 Church St., resells books, knickknacks, candles and clothing, including evening gowns and children’s clothes. Donated items come from employees of the hospital and people in the community. Last year, Crestwood High School

But slowly, word is getting out to others. “I believe we’re getting more of the community in now that they know we’re here,” said boutique co-manager Renee Aquilina. “We want to increase awareness of our presence.” Proceeds have benefited several auxiliary projects.

SCRANTON – Attorneys for Pittston city have asked a federal judge to reconsider his ruling that declared the city had violated the constitutional rights of a towing contractor whose contract was ter-

Glodzik filed suit against the city and several council members in February 2009, alleging his right to due process was violated when council voted in 2007 to terminate his contract to tow vehicles. The city maintained the action

was taken because it had received numerous complaints regarding the service Glodzik provided. Glodzik disputed that allegation. His suit sought damages for breach of contract, as well as violations of his Fourteenth Amendment right to due process because he was not given proper notice before council’s action. In a ruling issued in March, Caputo agreed with Glodzik that his See RULING, Page 5A

A federal magistrate judge has recommended dismissal of a lawsuit filed by four black men who allege minorities were excluded from the juries that heard their criminal cases. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Andrew Smyser said the federal lawsuit filed by Henry Stubbs, Larry Tooley, Kevin King and Larry Woodson should be dismissed because it fails to state Stubbs a valid cause of action. The four men filed suit in March against the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office and various Wilkes-Barre city officials. The suit, which the men wrote and filed themselves, alleged the defendants conspired to keep black people and other minorities off the juries that heard their cases. Stubbs and Tooley were convicted of first-degree murder; King was convicted of a non-fatal shooting and Woodson was convicted of drug charges. Smyser recommended the suit be dismissed based on a prior appellate court ruling that said a defendant can only seek to recover damages for an unconstitutional conviction if he or she can show that the conviction has been overturned. A federal judge will review the recommendation and make a final determination on the suits. -- Terrie Morgan-Besecker WILKES-BARRE

generators kicked in at three — Rokkasho, Higashidori and Onagawa — that lost power. The aftershock knocked out two of three power lines at the Onagawa nuclear power plant north of Sendai, which has been shut down since the tsunami. One remaining line was supplying power to the plant and radiation monitoring devices detected no abnormalities. The

plant’s spent fuel pools briefly lost cooling capacity but an emergency diesel generator quickly kicked in. Officials said the aftershock hit 25 miles under the water and off the coast of Miyagi prefecture. Buildings as far away as Tokyo, which was about 205 miles from the epicenter, shook for about a minute.

he Obama administration is releasing $311 million to states to help poor families struggling to pay high home energy bills. Officials said Thursday that the latest money for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program brings the total to $4.2 billion for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. Home heating aid advocates say that many poor families have been hard hit this year by rising fuel prices, particularly in the Northeast, where people depend more on heating oil. The program is expected to help a record 8.9 million households for the current fiscal year.

Suicide attack kills 6

Suicide attackers stormed a police compound with AK-47s, grenades and an explosives-rigged ambulance in southern Afghanistan Thursday in an escalation of fighting that coincides with demonstrations — some of them deadly — over the burning of a Quran in Florida. Six Afghan security troopers died in the attack in Kandahar province. Riots in the same province incited by the Quran burning killed 10 people on Saturday, part of a wave of protests that has forced international aid organizations and embassies to virtually lock down their facilities for more than a week. More protests are expected Friday. JERUSALEM

Missile hits school bus

An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck a school bus in southern Israel Thursday, wounding two people, one of them critically, and prompting fierce Israeli retaliation that killed five Palestinians. Israel unleashed airstrikes and tank fire against Hamas targets across the border. It was the heaviest assault on the coastal territory since a broad military offensive two years ago. Besides the dead, more than 30 Palestinians were wounded, said Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmiya. He said one of the dead was a 50year-old civilian who was sitting outside his home when he was struck by tank fire. Three others were militants killed near the southern Gaza town of Rafah. The fifth man was a Hamas policeman. WASHINGTON

Gates: Gay impact minimal

Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Thursday reassured U.S. warfighters in Iraq that allowing gays to serve openly in the military will have little impact on the armed forces, an argument largely echoed by the top leaders of the Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy. Visiting troops at Camp Liberty in Baghdad, Gates was asked when repeal of the 17-year-old policy commonly known as "don’t ask, don’t tell" would occur and what its effect would be. "In Washington, leaders of the four services testified before the House Armed Services Committee on the implementation of the new policy. Several expressed reservations last December when a divided Congress voted to repeal the law and President Barack Obama signed the legislation. The repeal did not occur immediately as training and certification by the department were required before the ban is lifted. Training for the service members began around March 1 and is slated to be finished by summer’s end.

12 die in Brazil school rampage Gunman opens fire, killing 11 students then himself. At least 18 others are wounded. By JULIANA BARBASSA Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO — A gunman opened fire at a public elementary school in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, killing at least 11 students before taking his own life. At least 18 other people, mostly students, were hurt and brought to local hospitals, said Rio state Health Secretary Sergio Cortes. At least four were in grave condition. The dead included 10 girls and one boy, plus the gunman, Cortes said. The ages of the children were not immediate-

ly known. Police had said earlier that at least 13 people had died in the shooting. A police spokeswoman told the AP that the gunman was identified as 23-year-old WelOliveira lington Oliveira, a former student at the Tasso da Silveira school, located in a working-class neighborhood in western Rio. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying that she was not authorized to discuss the matter. A motive was not immediately known, but authorities said the shooter left a rambling and mostly incoherent letter at the scene indicating he wanted to kill himself. Rio is a city rife with drug-gang vio-

lence in its vast slums, but school shootings are rare. The gunman had no criminal history, Police Chief Martha Rocha told a news conference. Rocha said he walked into the school with two firearms — she didn’t detail what type — and an ammunition belt. He fired off at least 30 rounds. About 400 people were inside the school when the shooting began about 8:30 a.m. local time (7:30 a.m. EDT). The school serves grades one through eight. Two young boys, at least one with a gunshot wound, ran up to two police officers on patrol about two blocks away from the school as the shooting started. The two officers sprinted to the school and at least one quickly located the gunman on the second floor and traded shots with him.

WASHINGTON — Those yearly statements that Social Security mails out — here’s what you’d get if you retired at 62, at 66, at 70 — will soon stop arriving in workers’ mailboxes. It’s an effort to save money and steer more people to the agency’s website. The government is working to provide the statements online by the end of the year, if it can resolve security issues, Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue said. If that fails, the agency will resume the paper statements, The governwhich cost $70 ment is workmillion a year to ing to provide mail, he said. the state"We’re just right now trying ments online to figure out the by the end of most cost-effective and conve- the year, nient way to pro- Social Securivide that to the ty CommisAmerican pubsioner Michael lic."

The decision was related to the agency’s operating budget, which has essentially been frozen at 2010 levels — minus about $350 million in economic stimulus money the agency had been using to handle claims. Advocates for older Americans say they are sympathetic about the agency’s budget problems, but several said an online option is insufficient, especially for people who may not have computer skills or access to computers.

Libyan rebel convoy apparently hit by NATO strike Rebels angry as it was the second such incident in a week. Five anti-Gadhafi forces were killed.

By SEBASTIAN ABBOT Associated Press

AJDABIYA, Libya — An apparent NATO airstrike slammed into a rebel combat convoy Thursday, killing at least five fighters and sharply boosting anger among anti-government forces after the second bungled mission in a week blamed on the military alliance. The attack — outside the strategic oil port of Brega — brought

fresh questions about coordination between NATO and the patchwork of rebel militias in a conflict described by a senior U.S. commander as a stalemate that could eventually require the Pentagon to reassert more power, and possibly even send in ground forces. Tensions between the rebels and NATO were flaring even before the latest accident, with the fighters criticizing the alliance for

doing too little to help them. Thousands of civilians and fighters raced out of the rebel-held city of Ajdabiya in eastern Libya after reports that Moammar Gadhafi’s forces gained ground in the chaos after the bombing. Some militiamen shouted insults against NATO as they retreated. NATO did not directly acknowledgeresponsibilityforablundered airstrike on the rebels.

SENDAI, Japan — A big aftershock rocked quake-weary Japan late Thursday, rattling nerves as it knocked out power to the northern part of the country and prompted tsunami warnings that were later canceled. The quake was initially measured at magnitude-7.4, though the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo., later downgraded it to 7.1. Either way, it was the strongest aftershock since several were recorded on March 11 — the day of the magnitude-9.0 earthquake and tsunami that killed as many as 25,000 people and touched off a nuclear crisis last month. There were no immediate reports of serious injuries or major damage, and the operator of the tsunami-ravaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant said there was no sign the aftershock had caused new problems there. Workers retreated to a quake-resistant shelter in

the complex, with no injuries. The aftershock around 11:30 p.m. was strong enough to knock items off store shelves and move a large automated teller machine at a FamilyMart convenience store in the major northern industrial center of Sendai. The city is far enough inland that it avoided major tsunami damage, but people there were without gas and electricity for weeks. Manager Takehiko Akagi said 100 people had showed up within an hour of Thursday’s aftershock and cleared the shelves of ice, water and instant noodles — items that were in short supply after the bigger quake. In Ichinoseki, which is also inland, buildings shook violently, knocking items from shelves and toppling furniture, but there also appeared to be no major damage there. Hotel workers lit candles so guests could find their way around. Japan’s nuclear safety agency said power plants along the northeastern coast were under control after backup



LETTERS Continued from Page 1A

“Your Honor, my brother is a beaten man. He has had his life ripped away from him,” wrote his older brother Patrick J. Toole III. Michael Toole faces prison time for his guilty plea to tax evasion and accepting a reward for official action. He admitted accepting the use of a New Jersey beach house from an attorney who benefited from a ruling made by the former judge. He also did not report as income a $30,000 referral fee from another attorney. But those actions were out of character for the man who coached Little League baseball, volunteered at his church and children’s schools, the letter writers said. The embarrassment and ridicule he has undergone have been punishment enough, they added. A few people, however, saw Toole in a different light and urged that he be punished for bringing disgrace to the county bench that has seen two others judges, Mark A. Ciavarella and Michael T. Conahan, step down on unrelated corruption charges. Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll pointed out that there is a backlog of criminal cases due to Toole’s absence and that of the other judges. Their actions will have a long-lasting effect, she said. “Quite simply put, it has been devastating and will be a mark on

TOOLE Continued from Page 1A

The letters from court employees, friends and co-workers should also be released, he said, because those people should know that by writing a letter, they were giving up some of their privacy rights. He declined to release letters from Toole’s mother, father, wife and children and members of Alcoholics Anonymous, finding that those letters contained highly personal information; therefore those persons’ right to privacy took precedence over the public’s right to know. Regarding the alcohol counselor’s letter, Conaboy said it contained confidential information regarding Toole’s medical history. He left open the possibility he might release that letter, family letters and those from Alcoholics Anonymous at a later date with certain information redacted. Sentencing today

Gordon Yursha testified Jordan acknowledged and waived her right to remain silent, describing how she picked up a shotgun and fired at Reilly, striking him in the head. She even detailed how she tried to clean up the blood and drank a beer before running to Adamski’s house in Luzerne, where police were called. After nearly 90 minutes of testimony, Barilla determined assistant district attorneys Ches-

the name of our County for years and years to come,” said Musto Carroll. Al Baloga, who identified himself as an 85-year-old taxpayer from Dallas, called for the maximum sentence for Toole. “We deserve better from the legal profession which may never recover in Luzerne County,” wrote Baloga. Still Toole supporters asked Conaboy to show mercy on him. “My brother is not a great man, he is a man who makes others feel great,” wrote Dr. Joseph Toole. “He has done more good in 49 years than most do in a lifetime.” His letter, like many of the others, was written last year while Toole was awaiting sentencing. Arun Patel, a manager at Beer Belly’s Beverage in State College where Toole works, said he was skeptical of him at first. But Toole has worked his way up to a supervisor role in the only job he could find after leaving the bench. “Mikeasafriend,hasbeenthere for me anytime I needed him,” wrote Patel. “My children even call him Uncle Mike now. He is the type of guy who would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it.” A co-worker at the beer store said he admires Toole for showing strength in all he’s been through. “Keeping a positive outlook when he is sweeping cigarette butts from the parking lot or cleaning the rest rooms, living out of a hotel or even in his car, Michael can still hold strong,” wrote Joseph J. Aveni. Toole, 51, of Wilkes-Barre, will be sentenced today at 10 a.m. for his guilty plea to corrupt receipt of a reward for official action and tax evasion. Authorities say Toole accepted free use of a beach house owned by attorney Harry Cardoni as a reward for influencing an uninsured motorist arbitration case involving Cardoni. Federal sentencing guidelines call for a sentence of 27 to 33 months in prison. The defense presented Conaboy with 156 letters written on behalf of Toole in hopes of convincing Conaboy to show leniency. The conference Thursday was called to address the request for the letters that was initially made by WNEP-TV reporter Dave Bohman. The Times Leader was granted permission to intervene in support of the television station’s request. Frank Nocito, Toole’s attorney, had objected to the release of any of the letters, arguing that many of them contained highly personal information and that the authors had written them under the

Boutique’s future endeavors. “We will continue to raise money for Geisinger,” she said. “I think that we will focus on activities and projects that involve women and children and the communities where our campuses are located.” Volunteer Marge Koval, who has worked in the store since its opening in 2010, said she has been fully satisfied with her affiliation. “I think I’ll never stop until I can’t do it anymore,” she said. ter Dudick and Rebecca Reimiller established a case against Jordan, sending an open count of criminal homicide to county court. Coroner John Corcoran testified Reilly died from a single gunshot wound to his head. His death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy by forensic pathologist Dr. Mary Pascucci, Corcoran said. Yursha read a five-page statement he wrote in response to Jordan’s alleged confession to the deadly shooting. Jordan claimed she and Reilly were arguing, and at one point, she told him to leave the house and he

A visit by Toole to a viewing prompted close friend Joseph J. Stempien Jr. to write. “During that time, Mike’s accusations were all over the newspapers and television, labeling his reputation as a fraud,” said Stempien. “Still, he went out of his way to come to my mother’s wake & pay his respects, speak to every family member and send his condolences. I ask that you understand that we all make mistakes and wrong decisions in our lives. Anyone could have just sat home and hid

behind their walls avoiding the press. Instead, he was there for me and my family.” Attorney Charley Ross Jr., an assistantcountypublicdefender,felt compelled to write and offered to come to court to speak on behalf of Toole. “I am proud to go to bat for him and would appear in person if you were to request it your honor. I certainly couldn’t say that about everybody. But this man is worth saving. He has done much more good than bad in his life,” said Ross.

assumption they would remain private. Conaboy acknowledged the court had been presented with an unusual situation as he had never before been asked to release letters written on behalf of a criminal defendant. “This is a bizarre meeting, to say the least,” the 86-year-old Conaboy said as the meeting began in a conference room. “I’ve been a judge for 50 years and I never had a request (like this) before.” Conaboy said he initially agreed to allow Bohman to see the letters, but then decided he should contact Toole’s attorneys and the government before releasing the information. Conaboy originally planned to meet only with attorneys for Toole, the government and the media outlets. In an unusual move, he allowed reporters, who typically are precluded from any hearing that is not held in open court, to attend and report on the meeting. The judge candidly acknowledged that he was “struggling” to make a decision regarding the let-

ters was “looking for as much guidance as I can get.” “In fairness to the public, I thought you should know what I’m struggling with,” he said. Ralph Kates, attorney for The Times Leader, and Michael Genello, attorney for WNEP, sought the release of all the letters, arguing the public had the right to know all the information Conaboy would utilize in deciding Toole’s sentence. That was particularly important because Toole was a judge charged with violating the public’s trust.


phone call made to him the morning of the council meeting. That notice was insufficient to protect his due process rights, the judge said. Caputo rejected Glodzik’s request to rule in his favor regarding the breach of contract allegation, however, finding there was a material issue of fact regarding whether his performance met the standards set forth in the contract. In a motion for reconsider-

due process rights had been violated, but deferred the question of breach of contract for a jury to decide. Caputo said Glodzik’s contract required he be provided 30 days written notice if his contract was to be terminated. Evidence showed the only notice provided to was by refused. She left and returned to find a locked door. Jordan said she smashed a window and unlocked the door. The fight continued when, Jordan claimed, she couldn’t take it anymore, picking up a loaded shotgun and firing at Reilly. Jordan’s alleged confession came after, Adamski testified, she heard her sister ask for a lawyer and a phone call. Fannick also suggested that Jordan killed Reilly in self-defense. Kingston police Sgt. Michael Krzywicki testified he had investigated a domestic disturbance at the house involving Jordan

Testimony open Kates also argued that if those who wrote the letters appeared in court to testify on his behalf, their statements would be open to the public. “I have difficulty understanding how you would consider that evidence differently because it is in written form versus testimonial form,” Kates said. “The fact it is in written form does not change the public’s right to know the factors presented to you to influence your decision.”

and Reilly in December. Reilly was charged with domestic violence charges and was formally arraigned in county court a week before he was killed. Fannick said there was a history of Reilly being violent toward Jordan, including dispensing pepper spray down her throat. Jordan remains jailed at the county prison without bail.

icated on a person retaining their anonymity. Kates and Genello suggested a compromise could be attained by releasing the letters and redacting the writers’ names. Conaboy said he is willing to reconsider that possibility, but held to his original decision to deny disclosure.

Kates acknowledged that the letters written by Toole’s father, Patrick, a retired county judge who now serves as a senior judge, and other family members likely contained highly personal information. The release of that information would undoubtedly cause the family pain, but that was not a valid reason to withhold them, he said. “Public disclosure in a very real sense would pour salt into a wound. But personal discomfort is not a reason to deny the public access to information you think is important in making your decision,” Kates said. Conaboy said he understood the attorneys’ positions, but he felt compelled to keep letters written by Toole’s family confidential because they contained intimate information. “I think they are entitled to privacy for these letters that, by nature, are very emotional,” Conaboy said. Conaboy said the letters from members of Alcoholics Anonymous also presented a quandary because that organization is pred-

Lawyers pleased Speaking after the hearing, Erik Schrader, news director for WNEP, said he was pleased by the judge’s decision. “We are very happy the public is going to see the information that, by the judge’s own admission, he plans to use in influencing his decision,” Schrader said. “The things we did not get, I understand the reason for why we didn’t get it.” Kates said overall he was also happy with the judge’s decision. He said he remains hopeful Conaboy will agree to release the other records with certain redactions. “I think he is troubled by withholding information from the public and will reconsider his decision,” he said.

ation filed Wednesday, Bufalino contends Caputo incorrectly interpreted the law regarding the due process claim. Bufalino said Glodzik’s contract contained a provision that said it could be terminated for any reason, without any cause required to be shown.

Because of that he was not entitled to protection under the Fourteenth Amendment. Bufalino asks Caputo to reconsider his decision and rule in favor of the city. In the alternative, he asks Caputo allow the city to appeal his ruling to a higher court.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “If we’re going to make the most of Marcellus Shale, we have to look beyond drilling.” Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley Cawley spoke after House Republicans this week unveiled a proposal to use $47.5 million to encourage increased use of natural gas in buses and government vehicle fleets.


State eyes drilling on campus land


HE DRILLING hawks are circling around the latest state-owned target for assimilation into Pennsylvania’s natural gas barony. Lawmakers are mulling legislation to allow rents and royalties from gas drilling at stateowned universities to be diverted from the state’s Oil and Gas Lease Fund to pay for campus capital improvements. Interesting timing; Gov. Tom Corbett has proposed a 50 percent state funding cut to schools in the State System of Higher Education. There’s no such drilling happening yet. But half of the 14 state system schools sit atop the Marcellus Shale formation. What better way to offset Corbett’s cuts for colleges than opening up more state-owned land to drillers and giving schools a cut of that revenue? Estimations differ as to the eventual effect on the Oil and Gas Lease Fund, created 60 years ago to pay for conserva-

tion and recreation projects. But supporters say additional acres leased last year will create a significant inflow of revenue to the Oil and Gas Lease Fund within the next few years. Chances are good the fund will struggle to fulfill its purpose if state agencies are allowed to simply pocket revenue from their own drilling deals. At a time when Pennsylvania is poised to become an industrial juggernaut, conservation and recreation must be safeguarded to contribute to a balanced quality of life. Is there any piece of property owned by the state that will not be subject to drilling blight? Do we want to run the risk of industrial accidents on campus? If the appetite for natural gas is so strong that no piece of state land is inviolate, it’s probably time for lawmakers to knock off the spoon-feeding. Public Opinion Chambersburg, Pa.

Church seeks payment for rummage sale items


n March 26, the First United Methodist Church of West Nanticoke had its first rummage sale, bake sale and flea market. A woman came in, selected two suitcases and a print scarf and left without paying for the items. I’m sure this was an oversight, as everyone was told that all the money from sales was to be used to provide children’s programs and candy for our Easter egg hunt. We all are forgetful at times, and no one is accusing this woman of deliberately taking the items. We hope that she reads this and will consider doing the following: the money can be put through the mail slot of the side door to the community hall anytime or, better yet, come to our next rummage sale, bake sale and flea market. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Pay me for the items and maybe enjoy an item from our baked goods table as a treat from us. I sincerely hope you will not hesitate to take advantage of one of these options. Olivemae Medley Lewis West Nanticoke

Most vulnerable citizens suffer under budget stress


hile Gov. Tom Corbett is doing what he feels is necessary to bring the state’s budget in line, others in local government are not following his example. A spokesperson from a local school district recently said it would recoup some of its budget shortfalls by increasing taxes. Rather than reworking its expenses and cutting back to stay within its budget, it seems as if the district feels it has carte blanche to raise taxes whenever and on whomever it feels like. This seems too easy to pass onto an already overtaxed area. Over the past two years we’ve experienced double-digit increases of our town, school and county taxes, not to mention the 30 percent increase in our electric rates. Many senior citizens haven’t had an increase in their incomes for two years. With the ever-increasing costs of medicine, food, fuel and other necessities, this seems like another assault on the residents who have the least. Enough of a burden already has been placed on these residents because others won’t do the jobs for which they were hired and work to stay within their budgets. Without a provision for a tax exemption for citizens on Social Security, this added expense could be devastating. It is just impossible for these Social

Security recipients to maintain a decent standard of living. Doing without, despite what some people might think, doesn’t get any easier over time, but does diminish a person’s self-esteem. A lot of people in government talk about helping the less fortunate, protecting the needy and our senior citizens, but very little is done. Who will be a leader and protect these citizens who need our help the most? I hope we can count on you, Gov. Corbett. Louis Kern Pittston

Writer feels Sen. Casey not tackling real issues


en. Bob Casey still does not get it! This country is in the midst of its worst debt crisis since it was founded, and Sen. Casey has done nothing to support the cutting of spending and the reining in of our out-of-control debt. What has he been working on instead? Well, recently Sen. Casey has made local headlines for working to get improved river level-monitoring equipment and for supporting the Coal Street work in WilkesBarre. It seems to me that he is more concerned with his image back home versus really fixing this country’s issues. Recent votes that reinforce Casey’s being out of touch with what is needed include: his December vote to not eliminate earmark use in the Senate, his January vote against repealing “Obama Care” and more recently his votes against any significant budget cuts to the current fiscal year’s federal budget. I encourage Northeastern Pennsylvania residents to watch closely how Sen. Casey votes on two key issues in April. One key vote will be on the current fiscal year’s budget that will, hopefully, include significant spending cuts. The second key vote will be on raising the federal government’s debt ceiling. If Sen. Casey follows his past voting pattern, he will not support any meaningful spending cuts, and he will support increasing how much debt the U.S. government can have. If Sen. Casey votes as I have described, he will demonstrate further how out of


touch he is with this country’s real issues. Additionally, Sen. Casey will no longer deserve the privilege to represent the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Please keep this in mind when Sen. Casey is up for re-election next year. John Moga Dallas

GOP’s ‘hate merchants’ ruining the working class


ise up, America. The working class in this country is being attacked, and the news media apparently aren’t reporting it. The big money is slowly winning. We cut taxes for the rich and cut programs for the poor and senior citizens, and we keep electing these hate merchants. The Republicans have picked away at the things that help people who vote with an open mind and want the truth. They vilified ACORN, PBS, NPR, teachers unions, government workers, seniors. The working class, both union and nonunion, had better wake up and pay attention, or we’ll be back in the early 1900s. Demand that the news media report what is going on in states such as Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Indiana and New Jersey. Look at what they want to cut. The Karl Roves are tearing apart this country with their lies, but Wisconsin is fighting back. Go to MSNBC and see what is not being reported elsewhere. If you are not outraged after seeing what is going on in Wisconsin, I feel sorry for you. If we lose this battle, we will lose the Democratic Party. Dale Eastman Meshoppen

No one should profit from selling harmful products


read that some states want to lower cigarette taxes to increase their revenue, because surrounding states with cheaper taxes are taking away sales. There needs to be a law that makes it illegal for any state or government from benefiting or taxing anything harmful to a human life, or at least make whoever does liable for enabling it. Recently, taxes went up because the government wanted to stop smokers by raising its costs; now they want to do what? How can we trust anyone benefiting from the harm of human life? It only encourages cover-ups of harmful products if a buck can be made from it. This needs to be stopped; too many lives are lost due to the need for money. Rob Conklin Plymouth








Frackwater truck safety effort helps Average number of citations for every 10 vehicles inspected fell dramatically from last fall.

Amended code won’t apply to two current applications to build metering stations.


Efforts to educate truckers working in the Marcellus Shale industry seem to have paid off, with fewer traffic safety citations being issued and fewer trucks being ordered off the road. The Times Leader analyzed data provided by Pennsylvania State Police on Operation FracNET and found that the frequency of safety violations for trucks hauling wastewater from natural gas drilling operations decreased since October 2010. The wastewater, a by-product of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is heavy in salts and contains trace amounts of toxic chemicals. Fracking involves injecting millions of gallons of water into the shale to fracture it and release the natural gas inside. Trooper Tom Kelly, of state police Troop P in Wyoming, attributes the decrease in violations to a number of factors including a willingness of trucking companies and their drivers working in the shale industry to attend seminars offered by the state police

and familiarize themselves with state motor vehicle requirements. “A lot of their equipment is being updated and the drivers are being educated. They’re learning what Pennsylvania expects and they’re being more compliant,” Kelly said. Trooper Matthew Knock, of Troop P in Towanda, said the educational seminars began about a year ago and have been well-attended. “Locally, they’ve been pretty receptive, especially the larger gas companies. … They had been getting hit pretty hard with violations. Our enforcement prompted them to ask for (education). Since then, there’s really been great improvement. The classes in conjunction with enforcement have really changed things around,” Knock said. Although Operation FracNET was designed to address concerns about safety of vehicles working in the industry, Knock said troopers inspect all commercial vehicles that pass

pollutants in the often-toxic drilling water. Substances of concern, he said, include radioactive contaminants, organic chemicals, metals and salty dissolved solids. In his letter to Garvin, Krancer seemed to bridle at the perceived suggestion that the state isn’t doing its job keeping up with the drilling industry’s hot pursuit of the nation’s largest-known natural gas reservoir, the Marcellus Shale. “Rest assured that well before receiving your letter, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has been focusing on issues relating to natural gas drilling, and prioritizes protecting the environment and public health and safety above all else,” Krancer wrote. Garvin also had asked the state to re-examine permits previously issued to the treatment plants handling the waste, saying they lacked “critical provisions.” Krancer responded that requirements to monitor for substances of concern will be added to permits upon renewal and where warranted.” An EPA spokeswoman, Donna Heron, said

through the checkpoints. He said “the laws of probability” account for a majority of the trucks being shale-related. During the most recent round of inspections on March 14 and 15, state police, working with the state Department of Environmental Protection, the state Public Utility Commission and the federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, placed 131 – or 18 percent – of the 731 commercial trucks inspected out of service. State police issued 421 citations, an average of 5.8 citations for every 10 trucks inspected, and gave 824 written warnings. In addition, DEP personnel issued 35 citations and 13 written warnings. The most common violations involved faulty brakes and insufficient exterior lighting, according to state police. The total number of citations dropped drastically from FracNET inspections in the fall, when troopers issued 959 citations in September and 1,057 in October.

from rivers in the affected drilling region had done those tests. Kranceralsosaidhisagencyisseekingmoney to add more water-quality testing stations on Pennsylvania’s rivers. The state already is testing at seven spots on Pennsylvania’s waterways that are downriver from treatment plants that discharge partially treated gasdrilling wastewater, but upriver from public drinking water intakes. Some Pennsylvania drilling wastewater is reused or trucked out-of-state for disposal underground. Of the wastewater taken to treatmentplantsinrecentmonths,thegreatmajority went to seven plants that discharge into the Allegheny River, the Mahoning River, the Conemaugh River, the Blacklick Creek, the Monongahela River, the Susquehanna River and the South Fork Ten-mile Creek. Last month, the DEP said earlier tests from those seven waterways showed no harmful levels of radium, which exists naturally underground and is sometimes found in drilling wastewater that gushes from wells. Radium that is swallowed or inhaled can accumulate in a person’s bones. Long-term exposure increases the risk of developing several diseases, such as lymphoma, bone cancer, and diseases that affect the formation of blood, EPA said.

Thursday that her agency received Pennsylvania’s letter and is reviewing it. Pennsylvania is the center of Marcellus Shale drilling activity, with more than 2,000 wells drilled in the past three years and many thousands more planned. Drilling for gas in deep shale deposits is emerging as a major new source of energy that supporters say is homegrown, cheap and friendlier environmentally than coal or oil. But shale drilling requires injecting huge volumes of water underground to help shatter the rock — a process called hydraulic fracturing. Some of that water then returns to the surface. In addition to producing gas, the MarcellusShalewellsproducelargeamountsofultrasalty water tainted with metals like barium and strontium, trace radioactivity and small amounts of toxic chemicals injected by energy companies.

McMonagle said he favors involving the District Attorney’s Office and county police chiefs in the process, and finding ways to streamline cases through the district judge level. Adding on to the county’s treatment court program would also be on McMonagle’s list as judge, in trying to secure more funding to expand the program and low-income housing. For the primary, he said he will raise as much money as he can, but doesn’t expect to spend “anywhere near” $100,000 as some other candidates are. “I don’t think voters are

going to be impressed by how much you spend,” McMonagle said. He said he believes he would make a good judge because he has been a “reasonable, honest and fair” prosecutor and possesses characteristics as a little league umpire that are needed in the courtroom. “You call them as you see them,” McMonagle said.

It should be noted, however, the September and October inspections were conducted over three consecutive days while the March inspections occurred over two. The number of trucks inspected dropped from 1,135 in September and 1,175 in October to 591 in March. It should also be noted police issued only 669 citations during a three-day inspection in June. Still, the average number of citations for every 10 trucks inspected dropped significantly from 8.5 and 9 in September and October, respectively, to 5.8 for March. The greatest improvement could be seen in the Troop P coverage area, which encompasses Bradford, Sullivan and Wyoming counties and the northern part of Luzerne County. Troop P issued an average of 20 citations for every 10 trucks inspected in September and an average of 23.6 citations for every 10 trucks inspected in October but only 4.4 citations for every 10 trucks inspected in March.

siderable strides: the launch of an innovative medical college, a state-ofthe-art new building and preliminary accreditation. Most important, we have two very competitive classes of aspiring physicians, with a third on its way. In short, we have laid a solid foundation for the College’s future success. Now is the right time for me to step aside and allow new leadership to move forward with our vision.” Efforts to reach D’Alessandri for additional comment were unsuccessful. Anne Green, a spokeswoman for the school, said the announcement was made at a noon gathering of students, staff and faculty in the Mellow Theater at Lackawanna College, where the school has used classroom space since it opened in 2009.


Formula 1 gears up for Malaysia

DALLAS TWP. – Supervisors are looking at proposed amendments to the township zoning ordinance to keep some control over the natural gas and oil industries. Solicitor Thomas Brennan said the pending amendments, proposed this week, will strengthen the current zoning code and allow the township to “be more specific” in its criteria for approving gas and oil industry-related construction. Once advertised, the pending zoning changes would apply to any new application in the township but not current applications, including those from Chief Gathering LLC and Williams to build metering stations near the Dallas schools. Technical measure One of two amendments is what Brennan called a technical measure. It repeals part of Section 323 in Article 3, which describes conditional uses not determined in the current zoning ordinance. The term “excavation and extraction of minerals, including quarry operations (as defined in Article 2)” would be deleted from the conditional use definition. “This is needed because while we’re considering the main ordinance, there may be some confusion if we keep another section with the excavation and extraction of minerals,” said Brennan. The oil and gas-related addition relies heavily on a proposed ordinance in Kingston Township, and Brennan credited Kingston Township Solicitor Benjamin Jones III, among other local sources, as an aid in the development of code changes. Brennan said gas and oil activities will be limited to conditional usage in agricultural zoning districts. Zoning Officer Leonard Kozick estimates about 75 percent of the township is zoned for

She said D’Alessandri was not in attendance, but Board of Trustees Chairman Robert W. Naismith told those in attendance about the decision. D’Alessandri, 65, of Dalton, came to Northeastern Pennsylvania after serving a 15-year stint as vice president for health sciences at West Virginia University, dean at West Virginia University School of Medicine and president of the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute in West Virginia. He came to this region to help lead the Northeastern Pennsylvania Medical Education Development Consortium as it investigated the feasibility of a proposed medical college. The school has been operating out of classroom space at Lackawanna College while its $120 million Medical Sciences Building is being constructed a few blocks away along Pine Street. The school opened to students Aug. 17, 2009.

The Dallas Township Zoning Hearing Board will reconvene at 6:30 p.m. April 20 in the Dallas Middle School auditorium to continue a hearing for Chief Gathering LLC’s application for special exceptions to build a metering facility near the Dallas schools.

agricultural use, including the area on which the Dallas School District campus is located off Hildebrandt Road. One of the amendments declares oil and gas surface operations are limited to a minimum 10-acre site at least 1,000 feet away from a neighboring zoning district. Criteria detailed The document also contains special criteria and standards the industries must follow, and it specifies criteria necessary for certain aspects of the natural gas industry. For example, natural gas processing plants are subject to a minimum site of 50 acres, while a compressor station must be within a 10-acre site. Noise aspects of the industry are regulated as well, from requiring buildings to be completely enclosed to enforcing that all facility doors and windows be shut during operation. Brennan said some of these requirements are similar to that of the Kingston Township proposal, and he also utilized knowledge of previous noise issues within the township to support the requirements. Jones credited some other site-specific regulations, such as prohibiting the generation of electrical power on a site and controlling how spills and leaks of hazardous substances are contained, to industry and government standards. “I believe (the issue of prohibiting electric generation) came about as a result of fire prevention and electrical hazard,” he said. The recently introduced amendment in Dallas Township also includes extensive regulations on how truck traffic and road damage is monitored, similar to the Kingston Township proposal. A public hearing on the amendments will be held at 7 p.m. April 28, and the board will vote on the proposals at its regular meeting May 3.

Green said D’Alessandri has accomplished much of what he set out to at the school. She said she is unaware of any jobs he has lined up.The board praised D’Alessandri for his many contributions, including leading the college through its initial development and for ensuring a smooth transition. Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania Chief Executive Officer Denise Cesare, a member of the school’s board of trustees, was unavailable for comment Thursday, but a corporate spokesman issued a statement saying: “Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania will continue to support the medical college as they train future generations of physicians and work to improve access to quality healthcare in our community.” A message left with board member John Moses, a Wilkes-Barre attorney, was not immediately returned. Attempts to reach another board member and Wilkes-Barre attorney Murray Ufberg were unsuccessful.

Searching for more satisfaction

Already assured AHL’s best record, Pens seek to close regular season with a bang. By TOM VENESKY

Yankees manager Dave Miley (far right) stands with his team during the national anthem prior to the game with the Iron Pigs on Thursday.

ALLENTOWN – The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs and the 9,225 fans at Coca Cola Park had plenty of reasons to celebrate Thursday night. The Iron Pigs won on opening day for the first time in the franchise’s four-year history. The Iron Pigs have a record above the .500 mark for the first time ever. And, for the first time, the Iron Pigs are in first place. Led by starter Vance Worley, four Lehigh Valley pitchers combined for 15 strikeouts and allowed just one earned run in a 7-2 win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday night. Worley pitched six shutout innings, striking out nine and walking one to pick up the win. “He threw real good against us tonight,” said SWB manager Dave Miley, whose team enters the season as the four-time defending International League North Division champions. “Their bullpen also did a good job. We had some opportunities late, but it was too much to overcome.” Lehigh Valley jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning against SWB starting pitcher


With the best record in the AHL and home ice advantage for the entire playoffs both locked up, it would seem that the WilkesBarre/Scranton Penguins have little to play for this weekend as they wrap up the regular season with a three-game stint that begins tonight and concludes UP NEXT Sunday. But that’s Tonight not entirely Hershey Bears true. at The Pen- WBS Penguins 7:05 p.m. guins have a Saturday lot to play for this weekend, WBS Penguins at and it’s the same goal Hershey Bears 7 p.m. that’s been Sunday motivating Adirondack them all seaPhantoms son: wins. at Head WBS Penguins 3:05 p.m. coach John Hynes said he will be adjusting the lineup slightly to see how players respond in different roles in preparation for the playoffs. But ultimately, winning remains the priority. “The first thing is we want to play to win the games and make sure we’re doing the right things,” he said. “We’ll look at our lineup decisions based on who is going to give us the best chance to win that night.” But there are several underlying stories that will play out this weekend as the Penguins try to tack on a few more wins to the 56 they have already earned this season. First is the competition among players for ice time in the postseason. “It’s very competitive,” Hynes said. “We have a lot of guys here that can play. Everyone that’s been in the lineup has risen to the occasion when given an expanded role.” Hynes would also like to get some of his players who are coming off injuries back into the lineup this weekend so they see some game action before the playoffs begin. But he stressed that before anyone gets into a game, they must be 100 percent healthy. “They’re not being rushed back at all. This time of year we don’t need to have those guys playing banged up because we have some depth,” he said. The Penguins face the Bears at home tonight and on the road Saturday before wrapping up the season at home against Adirondack on Sunday. See PENGUINS, Page 6B

Golf no longer solely Tiger’s den GOLF USED TO be Tiger Woods and everybody else. About the only thing they had in common was how they described fair-tomiddling rounds afterward, how a handful of nearmisses could have changed everything. The difference, of course, was that Woods would go out the next day, and the next, and make almost everything in his sight. Now he not only sounds like everybody else, he plays like everybody else, too. “I hit a lot of beautiful putts today and they were just skirting the edge. So hopefully,” Woods said after an opening round 71 at the Masters, “those will start going in.” No one knows exactly what went wrong with his game since a stunning fall from grace some 16 months ago, perhaps least of all,

OPINION JIM LITKE Woods. Think back to a year ago here, when he was first slinking back into the game after months in hiding and a series of botched apologies. Woods finished tied for fourth, watched rival Phil Mickelson slip into a green jacket, then moved onto the next major and came even closer to winning another U.S. Open himself. Everything went downhill after that. On Thursday, just as Woods was finishing up a 3-putt bogey at No. 10, Mickelson was getting ready for the short walk from the practice putting green to the first tee. Leading the way, his caddie, Bones Mackay, was wearing white coveralls with the coveted No. 1 on the left side of his chest, and the roar built See LITKE, Page 6B

Halladay earns first win in rout The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Roy Halladay pitched seven sharp innings for his first win of the season, Wilson Valdez had a career-high four hits, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 11-0 Thursday. Halladay (1-0) allowed six hits and struck out seven. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner gave up one run in six innings in the opener against Houston, and avoided a loss when Philadelphia rallied for a 5-4 win. The four-time NL East champions are off to a 5-1 start in a season where nothing less than a second World Series title in four years will be considered a success. New York starter Jonathon Niese (0-1) got roughed up. The Mets head to Citi Field for their home opener Friday against Washington after splitting a six-game road trip. Brewers 4, Braves 2

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Nyjer Morgan jarred the ball loose in a collision at home to give Milwaukee the lead in the second inning, and the Brewers went on to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Thursday. Ryan Braun hit his third home run of the season for the Brewers, who have recovered nicely from a four-game losing streak to start the season. Milwaukee rallied to take three of four games from the Braves after losing Monday’s home opener at Miller Park. Rockies 7, Pirates 1

PITTSBURGH — Esmil Rogers allowed four singles while pitching into the eighth inning, Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in three runs, and the Colorado Rockies beat Pittsburgh to wreck the Pirates’ home opener under new manager Clint Hurdle.

Rogers (1-0) won the Rockies’ No. 5 job with a strong finish in spring training. He looked more like their ace, mixing a devastating 95 mph fastball with a few breaking pitches to overwhelm the Pirates over 7 1-3 dominant innings. After giving up singles to the first two batters, the right-hander retired 22 of 23, including 18 straight. Astros 3, Reds 2

CINCINNATI — Matt Downs doubled home the tiebreaking run with two outs in the ninth inning on Thursday and the Houston Astros held on for their first win of the season. The Astros were the last NL team to win a game, and they did it with a little drama. Downs, who had struck out in all three of his at-bats this season, doubled off Nick Masset (0-1) for the lead. Closer Brandon Lyon, who blew his only other save chance on opening day, gave up a pair of two-out singles before getting pinch-hitter Ramon Hernandez to ground into a forceout. Nationals 5, Marlins 3

MIAMI — Adam LaRoche snapped a slump with a tworun homer in the 11th inning, and the Washington Nationals salvaged the final game of their series at Florida. LaRoche was 3 for 23 before he hit his first homer of the year off Edward Mujica (1-1). That ended a streak of 12 2-3 scoreless innings for Florida’s bullpen in the series. The Marlins gave up two unearned runs, struck out 12 times and went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position.

Jury now deliberates Bonds’ fate Eight women and four men will decide if former slugger lied. By RONALD BLUM A Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — The eight women and four men sat in the jury box for more than 4½ hours, listening to angry arguments from federal prosecutors and Barry Bonds’ attorneys at the end of a 12-day trial that exposed the dark world of baseball’s Steroids Era. Now, Bonds’ fate is up to them. After listening to tawdry accusations of drug use, theft and body parts that grew (Bonds’ head) and shrank (his testicles), the 12-member panel gets to decide whether the home run king will become a convicted felon. Bonds’ trial on charges he lied to a grand jury more than seven years ago when he denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs ended Thursday with closing arguments from both sides that were filled with virulence and self-righteousness. “There’s a real irony to this case,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Parrella concluded. “These substances that the defendant took to make himself strong — he wasn’t strong. He was weak. He was too weak to tell the truth despite all the anabolic steroids.” And with that, at 3:51 p.m. PDT, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston turned to the jury box and said: “At this point ladies and gentlemen, we’re turning it over to you.” The jury’s first order of business when it starts deliberations Friday — the day the World Series flag is raised at nearby AT&T Park, home of Bonds’ San Francisco Giants — is to elect a foreman. Then it must sort through the testimony of 25 witnesses and hundreds of exhibits that include syringes, vials and dizzying computer graphs of drug tests. A seven-time MVP regarded as among the greatest hitters ever, Bonds is charged with three counts of making false statements and one count of obstruction of justice. His lawyers ridiculed the prosecution as being celebrity obsessed and willing to cut deals with anyone who would implicate perhaps the top player of his generation. “It’s part of an effort to demonize Barry Bonds, and it’s very wrong,” lead defense lawyer Allen Ruby said. Cristina Arguedas, another of Bonds’ attorneys, repeatedly took off her glasses and pointed them contemptuously at Jeff Novitzky, the tall, bald federal investigator who was seated at the prosecution table. “They have the power to end careers and to ruin lives,” she said to the jury, her voice quavering. “And nobody gets to test that evidence unless they have the wherewithal and internal strength to come to a jury trial — to you.” Bonds is charged with lying when he denied knowingly receiving steroids and human growth hormone from personal trainer Greg Anderson and for saying he allowed only doctors to inject him. An obstruction count lists four additional statements the government alleges were made to evade of mislead the grand jury. Each count carries a possible sentence of 10 years in prison, but federal guidelines indicate a recommended total sentence of 15 to 21 months. For convictions for similar offenses in the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) case, Illston sentenced two people to home confinement. Bonds doesn’t dispute that he took steroids but testified to the grand jury that Anderson told him they were flaxseed oil and arthritic balm. Parrella, in his 51-minute rebuttal that ended the trial, compared that to a teenager who arrives home glassy eyed on a Saturday night and tells his parents “I went to a bar and they told me it was just Coke.”












Premier Pegasus out of Santa Anita

The Associated Press


Justin Maxwell of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees signs an autograph forJohn Dorohovech of East Stroudsburg prior to a game with the IronPigs at Coca Cola field in Allentown Thursday.

ARCADIA, Calif. — Premier Pegasus was knocked out of Saturday’s Santa Anita Derby because of a leg injury that will sideline the promising colt through the Triple Crown series. He was the 8-5 favorite on the morning line in the $1 million prep for next month’s Kentucky Derby. Premier Pegasus sustained a hairline fracture in his left front leg and will be out 3 to 4 months, assistant trainer Maria Ayala said Thursday. The colt was galloping on the infield training track in the morning when Ayala thought she saw him stumble slightly. He returned to the barn and appeared to be walking fine. “Ten minutes later, it’s not good,” Ayala said. “He was walking bad.” X-rays showed the hairline fracture in the cannon bone of the colt’s left front leg. If he is healed in a few months, he will return to racing, she said. Premier Pegasus won the San Felipe Stakes by a record 7¾ lengths last month, and has four wins in five career races with earnings of $293,400. The injury was a blow to owner and trainer Myung Kwon Cho, a 68-year-old South Korea native who has just six horses in his stable. He also bred the colt and was eagerly anticipating

David Phelps. The Iron Pigs took advantage of two hits, a hit batter, a walk and a fielder’s choice to score the three runs off Phelps, who threw 39 pitches in the first inning. “I got into too many deep counts and I threw too many pitches down the middle of the plate,” said Phelps. “They have a good lineup and they took advantage of it. They were swinging the bats well.” The victory gave the Iron Pigs a win in the debut of manager Ryne Sandberg. The Hall of Fame second baseman, who enjoyed an outstanding career with the Chicago Cubs, was named Lehigh Valley manager during the offseason. Sandberg, who coached third base, was aggressive early, challenging SWB right fielder Greg Golson by sending several runners home on balls hit to Golson. Two of the runners scored – although catcher Jesus Montero dropped the ball on the first one. The third runner ended up going back to third base. “I look at it as a challenge,” said Golson. “I have a lot of confidence in my arm. I trust myself to be strong and accurate. When a runner is held up at third, it’s a good feeling.” Phelps settled down after the first inning, but Lehigh Valley broke the game open in the fifth inning with three runs. Delwyn Young blasted a solo home run on a hanging curve ball and Ronnie Belliard walked before Miley replace Phelps with George Kontos. Jeff Larish greeted Kontos with a two-run home run to right field. “I knew I couldn’t allow any

having his first horse in the Kentucky Derby since 1998. “Every year I try hard for one very good horse,” Ayala said. “I’m working hard, my groom, my hotwalker and Mr. Cho. When I see I have a good horse, I see it (excitement) in my team.” It wasn’t the first blow for Cho’s team this season. His other 3-year-old, Riveting Reason, who was second in the Robert Lewis Stakes in February, suffered a hoof injury in March and will miss two or three months of training. “My heart is no good now,” Ayala said, “but Mr. Cho say, ‘Relax, Maria. Maybe next year.”’ The disappointment was painful for jockey Alonso Quinonez, too. “The horse was training beautifully,” his agent Vince DeGregory said by phone. “Mr. Cho was very, very upset Alonso wouldn’t have a chance to win the Santa Anita Derby. The main thing is he’s going to come back and race again. “Alonso is more heartbroken right now because he had so much faith in this colt.” Quinonez snapped his own 72race losing streak when he and Premier Pegasus romped to victory in the San Felipe. He said through a jockey’s room official that he didn’t want to talk.

more runs for us to stay in the game,” said Phelps. “I thought I was doing a pretty good job until I hung the curve ball to Young. He made me pay for it.” Golson finished 2-for-3 at the plate and scored a run when he was driven home on a triple by teammate Jordan Parraz in the ninth inning. Parraz, who was also 2-for-3, scored SWB’s first run of the season in the seventh inning. He singled, went to third on a single by Ramiro Pena, and scored when Kevin Russo reached on an error. “It’s been a while (since playing), but there are no excuses,” said Miley. “It’s good to get the first game under your belt. Let’s hope there are better days ahead of us.”

HOW THEY SCORED LV FIRST: With one out, Kevin Frandsen was hit by a pitch. Frandsen went to third on a single by Cory Sullivan and scored on a fielder’s choice by Delywn Young. Sullivan went to second on the play and scored on a single by Ronnie Belliard. Jeff Larish walked and Brandon Moss followed with a single to score Belliard. IRON PIGS 3, YANKEES 0 LV FIFTH: Young hit a one-out solo home run. Belliard followed with a double. George Kontos replaced SWB starting pitcher David Phelps. Larish hit a two-run home run.

Schremp, Ladd help Thrashers deal blow to Rangers’ playoff hopes The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Rob Schremp and Andrew Ladd scored 15 seconds apart in the second period, Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves and the Atlanta Thrashers delivered a crushing blow to the New York Rangers’ playoff hopes with a 3-0 victory Thursday night. Just two nights after the Rangers posted their most stirring win of the season with a late comeback against the Boston Bruins, New York looked flat from the start without second-leading scorer and leader

Ryan Callahan. That proved costly against the also-ran Thrashers, who had lost four of six but played the spoiler role perfectly and beat New York for the third time in the four-game season series. Now with only one game left in the regular season — a home matchup against division rival New Jersey on Saturday — the Rangers no longer hold their playoff fate in their hands. New York leads ninth-place Carolina by two points, but the Hurricanes have two games remaining and own the tiebreaker over

the Rangers. Eric Boulton added a goal for Atlanta in the third period. Senators 3, Canadiens 2 OTTAWA — Filip Kuba scored 1:16 into overtime to lead Ottawa past Montreal. Bobby Butler had a goal and two assists, the second on Kuba’s drive from the point that got past Montreal backup Alex Auld. Michael Cammelleri drew Montreal even at 2 with 10.1 seconds left in regulation. Jason Spezza also scored for Ottawa, and Craig Anderson

made 26 saves. Brian Gionta scored his teamleading 27th goal for Montreal, which fell short in its first attempt to give coach Jacques Martin his 600th career victory. The Canadiens clinched their fourth straight trip to the playoffs with a 2-1 overtime win over Chicago on Tuesday night.

UMD tops Irish in Frozen Four The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — J.T. Brown had a goal and an assist to help Minnesota Duluth beat Notre Dame 4-3 in the Frozen Four on Thursday, propelling the Bulldogs to their second national title game in school history. Mike Connolly, Jack Connolly and Kyle Schmidt also scored and the Bulldogs (25-10-6) survived being outshot 15-2 in the third period to get past Notre Dame (2514-5). Ken Reiter overcame a shaky start to make 31 saves. UMD will face either Michigan or North Dakota in the championship game Saturday night. Jeff Costello, T.J. Tynan and Calle Ridderwall scored for the Fighting Irish, with Ridderwall connecting short-handed early in the third period to cut it to one. But the Irish couldn’t come up with the tying goal in a furious final 2 minutes and went 0 for 5 on the power play. Justin Faulk and Justin Fontaine each had three assists for slick-passing UMD, which lost a four-overtime thriller to Bowling Green in the 1984 final.

Duke’s Irving says toe injury didn’t affect his departure By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH, N.C. — Kyrie Irving’s jump to the NBA after one season at Duke had more to do with his dream than his toe. The point guard said Thursday the toe injury that robbed him of 31⁄2 months of his only year in college “wasn’t a big factor” in his decision. “I wouldn’t have come back during the NCAA tournament when I did if I was worried about re-injuring my toe. ... If I were to come back, then I would have complete confidence that I would complete the entire year,”

he said. Irving spoke during a conference call one day after announcing he would leave Duke early for the NBA draft and planned to hire an agent. Irving jammed his right big toe Dec. 4 and didn’t play again until the NCAA tournament. That reduced his college career to only 11 games, during which he averaged 17.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils. “It was really a tough decision for me, personally, because both situations were beneficial to me,” Irving said. “If I would have

come back, I would have gained a lot more experience under Coach K. ... That was hard to let go, especially in the culture that’s built here that I was a part of. It’s something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life. “But on the other hand, deciding to go the NBA is just my ultimate dream,” he added. “I’ve been dreaming about it for a while, and having that opportunity to be such a high pick at such a young age is an opportunity that many people won’t pass up.” Irving is widely expected to be one of the first players taken if not the No. 1 overall pick. The June 23 draft is in Newark, N.J.,

Jayhawks’ Morris twins declare for NBA draft NEW YORK — Kansas twins Marcus and Markieff Morris have hired an agent will skip their senior seasons with the Jayhawks to enter the NBA draft. The forwards from Philadelphia led the team in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots last season, when the Jayhawks went 35-3, won the Big 12 regular-season and tournament titles, and advanced to the regional semifinals as a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

about 10 miles from his hometown of West Orange. He said he’s “not in any rush” to hire an agent and probably wouldn’t settle on one until after May 8 — the deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the draft and return to school. He

said his father, Drederick, is in charge of talking with interested teams. Until he selects an agent, Irving plans to work out at Duke. Irving anticipates an NBA lockout though apparently that wasn’t enough of a concern to sway his decision.

“I trusted everything,” McIlroy said. “I trusted where I wanted to hit the ball. That’s the key around here. With some of these pins, you can get tentative and try to guide it in there. You just have to pick your targets and trust your swing. I was very happy with the way I did that.” McIlroynearlyduplicatedhisdynamic start at last year’s British Open, where he started with a 63. The next day at St. Andrews, in a howling wind that actually forced a brief delay, he slumped to an 80. He shouldn’t face those conditionsinGeorgia,wheretheforecast calls for warm, sunny weather through the weekend. Whatever happens, he feels better prepared to deal with any adversity. “At the time, it was very disappointing,” McIlroy said, referring to his second-round collapse at St. Andrews. “But looking back, it was probably very valuable in my progression as a golfer.” Quiros was able to overpower Augusta National with his strength off the tee, but it was the putter that kept him in the game. After driving behindsometreesatNo.14,andgoing even deeper when his next shot struck a limb, he rolled in a 20-foot putt to salvage bogey.

He rolled in the short birdie putt and was tied for the lead at a placewherehe’sneverevenmadeit to the weekend. “It’s time to do it, isn’t it?” Quiros joked. “Finally, I played well.” Even though he’s known for his booming drives, the Spaniard knew which club deserved most of

slowly as fans on both sides of the roped-off walkway howled and leaned in for a look at the defending champion. Lefty strode into the maelstrom, waving awkwardly with his gloved right hand and wearing that goofy smile, soaking in the unqualified adulation that Woods once enjoyed and would probably kill to have again. By any measurement, Mickelson probably had the tougher year of the two, even with the Masters win. Just as his wife and mother were recovering from bouts of breast cancer, Mickelson was afflicted with psoriatic arthritis, a setback that required him to balance his medication, diet and conditioning routine and cost him the entire second half of the season. Despite at least a halfdozen chances to supplant Woods as No. 1 in the world, he came away empty-handed. Somewhere in the middle of that slide, Mickelson talked candidly about how hard it was to concentrate fully on golf, an admission of vulnerability that only won him more fans and the kind of thing you would never hear from Woods. Long a fan favorite, after a victory in Houston last week, Mickelson came here as the betting favor-

the credit. “I holed putts,” he said. “Obviously, the best club in my bag was the putter.” Oneofgolf’srisingstars,McIlroy began attacking at the par-5 second with the first of three straight birdies, and he never let up. Now, he’s got to avoid a British Open-like meltdown. “I have that experience to draw on,” he said, “especially being in a similar position to last year at St. Andrews. I feel like I’m better prepared to tee off in the second round of a major with the lead.” Woods was six shots back, but at least he wasn’t totally out of it. Mired in the longest winless streak of his career, he considered it a promising, if plodding, start. “Hey, there’s a long way to go,” Woods said. “I’m very pleased. I’m right there in the ballgame.” While Woods has gone 20 tournaments over17 months without a win, he’s always a contender at Augusta National. He’s captured four green jackets and finished fourth a year ago, coming back from a long layoff caused by the sex scandal that ruined his marriage and tarnished his image. Mickelson, coming off a win at Houstonandplayinginthenext-tolast group, pushed his opening tee shot into the trees left of the fairway. He scrambled to save the first of seven straight pars, a sign of things to come. Leftydroveunderanazaleabush at the13th and had to work hard to make par. He finally stumbled at the 18th, failing to get down from behind the green for his lone bogey of the day, pushing his score out of the 60s. He headed straight to the practice range to work on his balky swing before sundown. “It was just OK,” Lefty said. “I didn’t shoot myself out of it. But I didn’t make up ground on the field

like I wanted to. So I’ve got to go do it tomorrow.” Yang made an eagle at the 13th and briefly pulled into a tie for the lead with consecutive birdies on15 and 16. But a wild drive behind the trees led to a bogey at the17th, and hemadeanotheratthefinalholeafter knocking his approach shot over the green and failing to pull off a tricky up and down. His countryman took a different tact. Choi birdied five of his last six holes, capped off by a brilliant putt at 18 from the front of the green to the pin, tucked in the back. Matt Kuchar and Ricky Barnes were the top Americans at 68, while seven others were in at 69: Sergio Garcia, Charl Schwartzel, Brandt Snedeker, Ross Fisher, Ge-

off Ogilvy, Gary Woodland and 2008MasterschampionTrevorImmelman. Two-time U.S. Open winner Retief Goosen had the early lead after holing out an eagle from the fairway on the first hole. But the South African limped to the finish with three straight bogeys for a 70 that felt much worse. PGA champion Martin Kaymer came in as the world’s top-ranked player, but he’s never made it to the weekendatAugusta.Looksasifthe German will be going home early forthefourthyearinarow,opening with a dismal 78. “For me, it was very difficult,” Kaymer said. “There’s some golf courses that suit you and some, they just don’t.”

ite as well, a spot Woods owned the previous 12 years. Both Mickelson, currently ranked third, and Woods, seventh, could get the top spot in world rankings with a win here. “It would really mean a lot if he was No. 1 when I passed him,” Mickelson said Tuesday in a pre-tournament interview. “That would really be cool. “But he and I both,” Mickelson added, “have some work to do on our games.” The biggest change in Woods, outwardly at least, was hiring new swing coach Sean Folly. Signs of progress have been few and far between, which might explain why, when Woods rifled his tee shot into the rough right of the third fairway and arrived a few minutes behind it, half the spectators encircling his golf ball were emboldened enough to suggest how he should hit the next shot. “Punch out sideways,” one called out.

“Hit the stinger,” another said. Woods’ caddie, Steve Williams, fixed the crowd with a stare, asked for quiet and then patiently told a camera crew and spectators near the end of the clearing to move to one side or the other. Woods, meanwhile, tested how much hacksawing the bush behind him would allow, then hunkered down over the ball. He sent a low iron shot skidding back into the fairway and over the green, following it with a nifty wedge shot to set up a tap-in par. The rest of his day went much the same way — up and down. Afterward, when someone asked Woods, “Do you walk away thinking what could have been?” he blinked. “No,” Woods replied. “I’m very pleased. I’m right there in the balsam. I’m only six back and as I said, we got a lot of golf left.” Pushing the same theme,

another reporter asked, “What do you do when putts don’t go in? Do you go to the practice green and work on it?” “Today is one of those days where I hit beautiful putts,” Woods said. “I was hitting my lines and they just weren’t going in. That’s fine. Its not like I was pulling or blocking it. I felt real comfortable today.” Dozens of other guys came off Augusta National on Thursday and said almost the same thing. None was as good, or likely will be as good, as Tiger Woods was once. It seems fair to start asking whether Woods will ever be that good again, too.

PENGUINS Continued from Page 1B

If the Penguins needed another source of motivation for this weekend’s games, simply beating the rival Bears is a big one. “The Hershey Bears are the defending champs. If you’re going to ever do anything in this league, you have to go through those guys,” Hynes said. “Those are the games you want to play going into the playoffs. Two rivals, the buildings will be rocking, it’s a great way to end the season.” And the fact that the Penguins are 7-1 against the Bears this season means little going into this weekend, or if the two were to meet in the second round of the playoffs, according to captain Ryan Craig. “If we were to face them in the playoffs, throw all that stuff out the window,” he said. “You can say that about anybody. Come playoff time it’s a whole new ballgame.” NOTES Newcomers Andy Bathgate and Reid McNeill along with Ryan Schnell are in town but haven’t been practicing with the team, instead taking to the ice after the regulars are finished. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t learning anything. Hynes said the experience of being around a team getting ready for the playoffs should benefit the young players down the road. “The culture of our team is something you want the younger kids coming into and seeing how guys work, seeing how we practice and prepare for a game,” Hynes said. “Then when they go home for the summer there’s a benchmark. Instead of just ending their season, they get this experience and hopefully it gives them a catapult this summer, that there’s a goal to shoot for.”


Phelps back in Ann Arbor for Grand Prix event ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michael Phelps is back in Ann Arbor, the same town he lived and trained in before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Phelps is competing in the Eric Namesnik Michigan Grand Prix, which starts Friday on the campus of the University of Michigan. Phelps is one of several

stars on hand for the meet, including Natalie Coughlin, Ryan Lochte and Jason Lezak. Phelps reminisced a bit Thursday about his old house and his favorite places to eat in Ann Arbor, and he also says “the light’s at the end of the tunnel” — with the 2012 London Olympics less than 18 months away.

Watching inventories We’ll get a better sense of how consumers are doing from reports on wholesale trade inventories and sales in February. The data only covers companies that sell to governments, institutions and other businesses, but they show how much those businesses expect to sell to consumers, so they can be an early indicator of consumer spending. Investors will find out how much the rising cost of commodities has affected how much businesses fill their stockrooms.

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher’s speech to business writers at Southern Methodist University will help investors discern how concerned the Fed is about inflation. Tuesday, Fed officials said a surge in energy prices had the potential to weaken the economy. Some Fed members advocated raising interest rates soon. But a majority of officials want to keep rates at their record low levels beyond the end of the year. Investors will learn which camp Fisher is in.

PNC boosts dividend

PNC Financial Services Group Inc. is boosting its quarterly dividend to 35 cents from 10 cents after federal regulators cleared the move. The regional bank holding company, based in Pittsburgh, says the cash dividend will be paid May 5 to shareholders of record as of April 18. PNC also says it might begin repurchasing common shares under an existing 25 million share repurchase program. The company plans to buy back up to $500 million of common stock this year. PNC and other large banks were barred from raising their dividends until they received permission from federal regulators. The Federal Reserve put the banks through “stress tests” to see how they might withstand a weaker economy.

Alcoa joins carbon project

Alcoa Inc. said Thursday it has joined with two other companies to work on technology that captures carbon emissions, neutralizes them and turns them into a viable product. Alcoa will fund the project along with $13.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy. It will join with Codexis Inc. and CO2 Solution Inc., to investigate the technology. The aluminum producer said the companies will use scrubber technology to capture the emissions, then they will collaborate to treat a byproduct of aluminum manufacturing called alkaline clay. The project will try to combine treated flue gas, enzymes and alkaline clay to make a mineral-rich product for use in environmental reclamation projects, the company said. Researchers at Alcoa’s technical center in Pittsburgh will lead the threeyear project. The company secured the government grant to find ways of converting captured carbon dioxide emissions into useful products, it said in a statement.

Fixed mortgages unchanged

Fixed mortgage were essentially unchanged this week, as the average rate on the 30-year fixed loan stayed below 5 percent. Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage rose to 4.87 percent from 4.86 percent the previous week. It hit a 40-year low of 4.17 percent in November. The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage increased to 4.10 percent from 4.09 percent. It reached 3.57 percent in November, the lowest level on records dating back to 1991.

Cocoa export ban end seen

The U.N. envoy to Ivory Coast leader Alassane Ouattara says that the winner of last year’s presidential elections is expected to lift the ban on the nation’s critical cocoa exports. Ouattara, recognized by the U.N. and many countries as Ivory Coast’s legitimate leader, called for an export ban on cocoa in mid-January in an effort to force his rival Laurent Gbagbo to step down. Ivory Coast is among the world’s leading cocoa producers, and the ban and violence in the country have affected world prices for the commodity.

Credit union chief retiring Times Leader Staff


It’s still unclear how close the federal government is to facing a partial shutdown. With a midnight deadline looming for Democrats and Republicans to resolve their budget standoff, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said a shutdown is likely. Closing down government could hurt the economy, and would potentially stir up uncertainty for a market that has already been rattled Thursday by a second earthquake in Japan. So far, however, the markets haven’t reacted to the threat of a shutdown.

GE to pump $600M into solar panel plant By JONATHAN FAHEY AP Energy Writer

NEW YORK — GE is taking aim at the world’s biggest solar company in a bid to expand into a fastgrowing renewable energy market. General Electric Co. announced Thursday that it would spend $600 million to build the nation’s biggest solar panel factory. It would build the same type of so-called thin film solar panels manufactured by First Solar Inc., the biggest producer of solar panels in the world. GE also announced Thursday that testing by a government laboratory showed that its panels set an efficiency record for this type of thin film panel, made from the elements cadmium and tellurium. “It’s demonstrated to be the cost leader in the marketplace and we think we can push costs lower, and faster,” said Vic Abate, vice president for GE’s renewable energy business. The company did not say where the factory would be built. Abate said it would eventually employ 400 people and be producing panels by 2013. The plant would have the capacity to build 400 megawatts worth of panels per year, enough to power about 80,000 homes. By comparison, First Solar will have 2,300 MW of capacity by the end of this year. Still, analysts say GE’s size, manufacturing experience, and ability to invest heavily in technology and to finance projects is sure to eventually pressure First Solar and other solar makers. Several large Korean companies — Samsung, Hyundai Heavy Industries, LG Display, and LG Electronics — have also indicated they plan to invest in solar.

Shoppers flocked to the stores in March By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Shoppers shrugged off higher gas prices and cool temperatures to give retailers a surprisingly solid March. Revenue reports Thursday from retailers from Costco to Victoria’s Secret extend the streak of strong spending from late last year and suggest that an improving economy and recent job growth are outweighing pressure from higher pump prices. Retailers collectively saw a 2 percent increase over last March, the International Council of Shopping Centers said. That compares with expectations for flat revenue or a small decline. The increase is better than it looks because this year’s late Easter depressed results by 3 to 5 percentage points, analysts say. “Neither the lack of the Easter Bunny, nor cool temperatures nor spiking gas prices could keep consumers at bay,” said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics LLC, a research firm. “There is still a significant amount of pent-up demand. I think the job recovery is catching on.” Many stores reported revenue gains that handily beat Wall Street expectations. Target Corp. reported a smaller decline than Wall Street expected. Gap Inc. was one of the few big losers, reporting a decline that

was worse than expected and warning of disappointing earnings. Japan’s earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis also took a toll on Gap, which operates 150 stores there. The figures are based on revenue at stores open at least a year and are considered a key indicator of a retailer’s health. Many analysts had expected retail revenue to decline slightly in March, largely because the late Easter will shift most holiday spending into April. The calendar quirk meant retailers faced their toughest comparison in at least 10 years, Perkins said. An Easter that fell on April 4 helped drive last March’s revenue figures up 9 percent. This year, Easter is on April 24.

NEW YORK — The price of natural gas tumbled more than 2 percent Thursday after the government reported that U.S. supplies dropped less than expected. Oil moved in the opposite direction, jumping above $110 per barrel for the first time since September 2008. That could raise concerns among U.S. drivers. They’re now paying an average of $3.73 per gallon at the pump, up more than 65 cents per gallon since January. Oil and natural gas prices have seen different trends over the past two years. Oil, which is traded internationally, has climbed as China and other emerging economies increased world demand. Natural gas, however, is mostly geared toward domestic markets, and prices show an overall decline as a boom in production injected a hefty surplus into U.S. supplies. The average price for natural gas dropped 5 percent last month, when compared with last year. Oil, on the other hand, jumped 27 percent. Analysts said the latest government data will only widen the disparity between oil and natural gas. The Energy Information Administration reported that natural gas stocks dropped by 45 billion cubic feet last week. Analysts had expected an even bigger drop of between 49 to 53 billion cubic feet. The report was another sign that “good demand is not even putting a dent in supply,” analyst and trader Stephen Schork said. The natural gas contract for May delivery lost 8.9 cents at $4.057 per 1,000 cubic feet on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, natural gas lost as much as 11 cents, or 2.6 percent. Meanwhile, benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude oil for May delivery rose $1.47 to $110.30 per barrel on the Nymex. In London, Brent crude gained 27 cents at $122.20 per barrel on the ICE Futures exchange. Gasoline pump prices are still rising and setting records for this time of year. The national average increased nearly 2 cents on Thursday to $3.725 per gallon, according to auto club AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. A gallon of regular unleaded increased by 20.8 cents in the last month and 88.1 cents in the last year.

percent of individual investors who say they are bullish about the next six months 60% 50

The market’s on a hot streak, but individual investors have gotten wary again. In January, investors put more money into domestic stock funds than they took out for the first time in nearly a year. But violence in Libya and a nuclear crisis in Japan are among the worries now for investors. Here’s the evidence of a pullback: After putting $20.71 billion into U.S. stock mutual funds during January and February, they pulled out $4.91 billion over the four weeks through March 30. Investor optimism that rose in December to its highest level since 2004 fell back during March, according to a survey by the American Association of Individual Investors. Some financial analysts say this may not be a bad thing. They were concerned about a bubble. Professional investors sold stocks in response to the events in Libya and Japan. The market’s “fear gauge,” the VIX index, spiked higher in March. It fell back as investors calmed down.

Yet another area of rain is heading our way this morning, but we may only be on the northern fringe of it later this afternoon. Nonetheless, it would be a good idea to keep the umbrella handy, and that warm jacket, since readings this afternoon may not reach 50 in many places under a thickening overcast. Our weather for Saturday is looking OK, but with limited sunshine, light winds and rather cool afternoon temperatures. The day should remain dry. On Sunday, an invasion of much warmer air will start and last into Monday. Temperatures will easily rise above 60 and then above 70 degrees on Monday. And you deserve it! - Tom Clark
